Nine Inch Nails - Right where it Belongs
"Right Where It Belongs"
See the animal in his cage that you built
Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
See the safety of the life you have built
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
And it's all
Right where it belongs
The Beast is Carbon, 6 protons, 6 electrons and 6 Neutrons. We are the beast to sacrifice on the altar of this reality. We are trying to shed our
selfishness and we must be veiled in the image from seeing the light too closely.
Looking on each side of the mirror of life is realizing that the image is of God in this place. We are an image and not our real angel in heaven. We
are Children of God. The little ones.
10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
It is true, you are where you belong. God knows where we must be at every moment. The entire image is designed to point back to Him. Some need more
fire than others. There is a problem in this. There are two sides of the reflection. We must see the correct side of truth from love. God can only
give and receive. Taking makes us a thief. The fruit of all our choices reflects our own nature. Are we the taker or the giver? We are all thieves
in this place. We are supposed to wake to the truth behind giving and receiving only. If we do, love fulfills the law.
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself
Find yourself afraid to see?
An image, by it's very nature, is not the actual. Genesis 1:27 reveals the truth. The veil is what keeps us from duplicity. If we seek good for
reward, what are we after? If we seek good to avoid judgment, what is our aim? We must see God from truth. Love demands suffering and the laws of
nature are such that we must suffer. Either we suffer from our choices or we suffer the work forward by giving. Smoke and you get cancer. A reward
was taken and a debt caused. Workout at the gym and health is suffered forward. Suffering forward brings reward as a result. Debt is paid by the
one suffering forward. Christ is our example. He suffered each step to show us the way.
What if all the world's inside of your head
Just creations of your own?
Your devils and your gods
All the living and the dead
And you're really all alone?
You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can't find the woods
While you're hiding in the trees
This might be true except for one fact: God shows us the way from five baptisms: Earth, Air, Water and Fire.
From one of my threads:
"Confucius said, "I hear and I forget. I see and I learn. I do and I understand."
Earth - We are planted into the Garden. We are not rooted in the soil like plants or in a fixed domain like fish. Instead, we can occupy all
domains. This autonomy requires that we overcome these domains by hardships. The wilderness we occupy was provided to allow our growth by
Air - We are given the Word of God as a guide to the wilderness. This word is also the language we learn and master. Meaning ultimately comes when
we decipher the inner symbols of nature and overcome our ignorance and pride of the outer world. Meaning springs from the root, just like a plant.
Water - We are baptized into the Water (Immersion into Reality). The water cleanses the temple (body). The temple is where the sacrifice is made.
This temple houses the spirit of God, along with our soul. We are to overcome as we are born again. "You must be born again." Plants die and the
seed perpetuates to the next generation. Producing fruit ensures seed for the next crop.
19 But your dead will live, Lord;
their bodies will rise—
let those who dwell in the dust
wake up and shout for joy—
your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the earth will give birth to her dead.
20 Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until his wrath has passed by.
21 See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling
to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
The earth will disclose the blood shed on it;
the earth will conceal its slain no longer.
Fire - We are finally baptized by Trials. The Flaming Sword of God cuts away pride and protects the tree of life. The tree of life is DNA. We light
the fire we burn by. We can also put out the fire with the water.
Spirit - After overcoming the first four baptisms, we are then baptized by the Spirit of God.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind
me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
