Description: We must carefully study the Scientific Provable Universal Laws of Sustainable Nature to avoid suicide in the 21st century
“The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life.” - President John F. Kennedy 1961 Inauguration Address - Which will YOU choose to do? Will our legacy be Abundant Peace and Prosperity in Harmony with Nature, or 21st Century Suicide?
There is NO “wait and see” middle ground. Life or Death - One or the other is now unavoidable.
Further ongoing political policy inaction and endless delay may be quite deadly very soon.
Since 1961, Earth’s maniacal military warmongers have stockpiled enough deadly weapons of mass destruction to exterminate every human being hundreds of times over. Earth’s population has increased three fold since 1950 - Deadly poverty and starvation grips our world.
We have motivated new suicidal terrorist regimes to develop their own WMD. John Kennedy avoided ending all forms of human life through the insane nuclear arms strategy of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD), which is now useless when the Taliban train their own 12-year-old children to kill others by suicide, to receive Allah’s great reward. The end of all human life could begin with a small terrorist group and only one nuclear bomb hidden in an oil tanker, or orbiting Earth (like Iran’s Omid orbiting satellite did on February 2, 2009).
We are devastating Earth’s life-giving delicate environment. We are killing 50,000 to 100,000 acres of CO2-sequestering, oxygen-providing trees EVERY DAY.
Deadly air pollution and global warming greenhouse gas emissions are increasing at the unsustainable climate-changing rate of .6% per year.
We have refused to recognize the unsustainable past-peak nature of petroleum consumption, and failed to take appropriate action in response to the first economy-damaging OPEC oil embargoes of 1973.
In 2008, $4 / gallon gasoline blew a $15 Trillion hole in the U.S. economy. 3.5 million truck drivers were hurt. Many lost income, homes, health care, etc. At least 8 airlines went bankrupt. Every business that uses oil was badly impacted. 15 million American jobs were lost. Dick Cheney's Iran O.I.L. War, and Bush / Obama bailouts, badly burdened our children with trillions in new debt.
Clearly, if $4 gas and corporate greed nearly bankrupted America, then near-future $5+ gasoline will do even worse economic damage to us all, perhaps very soon. We are passing the unsustainable “point of no return” as we accelerate toward a deadly catastrophic cliff, with our heavy foolish foot on the floor of our inefficient SUV gas pedal.
These are plain and simple scientific FACTS, which no rational human can deny (unless you profit from oil).
The ONLY way to avoid suicide is to Live in Harmony with Nature, and with each other.
All other self-destructive lifestyle choices are unsustainable for very much longer.
To Live in Harmony with Nature we must study Nature’s Immutable Universal Laws.
Our study must be based on scientific provable facts, not inconsistent political dogma.
Let’s begin with the basics: The first sentence of the July 4, 1776 Unanimous Declaration of Independence of the United States of America is without a doubt clearly based on: “the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God.” 95% of Americans now claim that they believe in some form of God (as we at ZED most definitely do). The Official American Motto, and our money says: “In God We Trust.” A lack of belief and trust in God is officially UN-AMERICAN (despite what a minority of militant atheists tell you to believe).
I believe that the Universe exists – It is not just a figment of one human’s imagination. The Universe is not the result of random chance, or the thoughts of a mediocre myopic mere mortal mind. Its timeless precision and nearly-infinite complexity are beyond denial.
I am a second-generation successful research scientist. No rational scientist can look at the images from the Hubble telescope, or at organic life through a microscope, and deny the great macro-and-micro majesty of the Everlasting Timeless Creator of the Universe.
Max Planck – The Father of Quantum Theory – Nobel Prize in Physics – “The Nature of Matter”: “As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most-clear-headed science, to the study of Matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: ... All Matter originates and exists only by virtue of a Force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds this most-minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this Force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind."
Humans have differing perceptions and traditional opinions about the origin of the Universe, but whatever set it all in motion WE CALL “GOD.” You may use any name you choose. It does not have to be supernatural, but it does have to be superhuman. If you choose to call the Creator of the Universe “Nature”, that is just fine with us. The name is not as critical as the concept.
Regardless of your personal religious beliefs, ancient scriptures give insight into the human perception of God.
If they have
endured for thousands of years, they must harmonize with feelings that many people have shared for a very long time:
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in Spirit and in Truth.” - John 4:24
The Greek word “Pneuma” in John 4:24 is translated as “Spirit.” It means: “The True Nature of God.” Pneuma is sometimes called: "The Holy Spirit" – Coequal and coeternal with God The Father – Creator Of The Universe.
Pneuma is sometimes referred to as "The Spirit of TRUTH". In this sense, Pneuma means the life-giving essence of God, devoid of the physical matter of Creation. The timeless Pneuma of the Creator existed before Space and Time (Big Bang Theory).
The Holy Spirit has long been thought by many to be related to the human soul. It animates our body. The Pneuma endures forever after the body returns to the dust of the universe. No one can Prove this scientifically beyond any shadow of a doubt, but it is a strong belief that is found in many diverse religious systems (widely accepted by billions of humans).
New Testament Pneuma is the source of brotherly love (Greek “Agape”), affection, positive emotions, righteousness, godliness, compassion, good will, spiritual unity, knowledge of Everlasting Provable Scientific Truth, and Universal Consciousness. Those in Harmony with the Nature of God behave differently than those who are not.
Carl Sagan (American astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, and natural sciences - Author of the popular “Cosmos”, “Contact” and “The Burden of Skepticism”):
“We wish to pursue the Truth no matter where it leads. But to find the TRUTH, we need IMAGINATION and SKEPTICISM both. We will not be afraid to speculate, but we will be careful to distinguish speculation from fact. The cosmos (from the Greek word “Kosmos” – meaning the well-ordered universe) is full beyond measure of Elegant Truths; of exquisite interrelationships; of the awesome machinery of Nature.”
“It seems to me what is called for is an exquisite balance between two conflicting needs: the most skeptical scrutiny of all hypotheses that are served up to us, and at the same time a great openness to new ideas.” … “If you are only skeptical, then no new ideas make it through to you.” … “On the other hand, if you are open to the point of gullibility and have not an ounce of skeptical sense in you, then you cannot distinguish the useful ideas from the worthless ones.”
“The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counter intuitive. It may contradict deeply-held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do NOT determine what's true. We have a method, and that method helps us to reach not absolute truth, only asymptotic approaches to the truth - never there, just closer and closer, always finding vast new oceans of undiscovered possibilities.”
“The suppression of uncomfortable ideas may be common in religion and politics, but it is NOT the path to knowledge; it has no place in the endeavor of science.”
1 Thessalonians 5: 21, 22: “PROVE ALL THINGS; hold fast that which is good.”
Dr. Ellie Arroway (Carl Sagan’s “Contact”):“The major religions on the Earth contradict each other left and right. You can't all be correct. And what if all of you are wrong? It's a possibility, you know. You must care about the truth, right? Well, the way to winnow through all the differing contentions is to be skeptical. I'm not any more skeptical about your religious beliefs than I am about every new scientific idea I hear about. But in my line of work, they're called hypotheses, not inspiration and not revelation.”
Albert Einstein: “A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty - It is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man.” … “I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists” ... “Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.”
You are entitled to your own religious opinion, but no one is entitled to their own unscientific facts. No one should force feed you with WHAT to think, but we hope you learn HOW to think, reason, and discern Truth from Lies, with Skepticism and effective Critical Thinking Skills. When different people tell you WHAT to believe, how will YOU decide which one(s) to believe?
You surly do not need to agree with us on minute details, but clearly, if the Universe exists, then whatever set it in motion also exists. We must learn to live in harmony with God’s Nature. No other behavior is scalable or sustainable for very long at all.
For as far back as we can see through the history of Time (about 13.7 billion years), it does not appear that the Laws of Nature have changed or been suspended. We can see it in Earth’s fossil record, and from our man-made spacecraft.
God-loving, persecuted, Galileo Galilei believed the ancient wisdom of Psalm 19:1 (as we also do):
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.”
We do NOT fully understand everything about our Universe, but God gave us Powers Of Observation. I do not believe that the Creator of the Universe, who communicates with us through Nature and spiritual insight, would want us to deny the obvious Truths of Nature’s Observable, Provable, Scientific Laws.
" Psychoneuroimmunology " is a well-documented factual phenomenon that is as old as homo sapiens physiology. Its basic proven premise is that our mental images influence our health in complex, scientifically-measurable ways. Medical research scientists call it “The Placebo Effect” and other names.
It occurs when a person responds positively to a physiologically-inactive drug, procedure, or treatment. A respected person provides a placebo, tells the receiver that it will produce a certain effect, and if believed, it does so more often than not.
Psychoneuroimmunology appears to be some type of interaction between the Pneuma inside us and our physiology (no matter what your religious perspective, or how you think humans came to be what we are today).
We know for scientific certainty that there are direct neural connections from our brain to our lymph nodes. They store and release white blood cells, which are an important element of a healthy person’s immune system. White blood cells attack and destroy foreign cells inside our bodies that do not match our own DNA (blueprint for life). This might be a cancer mutation, or a splinter under our skin. White cells accumulate at the sites of infections.
If we have a positive healthy self image, our lymph nodes will release more white blood cells to attack disease, than if we dwell on negative thought patterns, or “lose the will to live.”
The ancient book of Proverbs records this great wisdom: “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.”
Dr. Patch Adams - Gesundheit Institute – Humor Therapy Works!
Become a clown – Help others heal. Modern mental imaging techniques are much more than mere “bedside manner” used to be in the mid 20th century. Sometimes, silly is very healthy. Don't be afraid to laugh at the silly mistakes you have made. Forgive yourself, and others, and move on to a better life tomorrow.
Positive mental imaging has been demonstrated to double the number of white cells in our blood stream. They can reduce the number of cancer cells in our bodies and accelerate the immune defense healing of many types of disease. Mental imaging also influences blood flow to wounds and can concentrate the metabolic building blocks needed for the body to repair itself, which happens every day of our life.
The Stanford Medical Research Institute demonstrated the scientific fact of doubling white blood cells through the use of HYPNOSIS (which has been commonly used in Eastern Medicine for thousands of years). In fact, MOST medicine more than a century ago was largely based on ineffective “witch doctor” treatments, plus the Placebo Effect.
The Greek New Testament contains the word “Hypnos” (the root of our modern English word Hypnosis). In The Bible, Hypnos is always related to events that were perceived as “miracles.” When the New Testament Greek was translated into King James English, Hypnos was incorrectly translated as “sleep”, because they did not understand it, or have a word for Hypnosis.
(Ancient scripture is somewhat easier to understand from the perspective of its original language and the culture of the day. Much meaning has been lost through many generations of bad translations.)
It has only been in the last century that Western Medicine has rediscovered these ancient Hypnosis Mental-Imaging Placebo-Effect Principles of Mysterious Brain / Body Psychoneuroimmunology. It is embodied in today’s “Humor Therapy”, which is common in most clinics that specialize in the treatment of cancer, childhood diseases, and in many other treatment locations.
If you believe that a pill, procedure, prayer, or petting a dog will make you healthier, there is a good chance that the Placebo Effect will make you somewhat healthier. You should live a longer, happier, more-productive life by amplifying the good things in life, and learning to laugh at the bad ones. You will certainly be more fun to be around.
If however you do NOT have faith, you will probably receive little benefit from such things. If you dwell on negative thoughts, more bad things will happen to you.
“With our images, we create the world.” – The Happy Buddha
The effectiveness of Psychoneuroimmunology is directly linked to FAITH (real or imagined). With respect to the Placebo Effect, perception is much more important than reality. There is essentially no scientific doubt today that our mental images influence our future – for good or worse.
Emerald Eco-City will rely heavily on positive mental images and self-fulfilling prophesies.
We will respect and encourage diverse non-violent cultural healing and religious beliefs.
In a well-balanced world, religion and science SHOULD provide mutually-supportive synergy (1+1=3).
Neither one should contradict the other (but sadly, most do today to the detriment of both).
The only apparent way that conflicting religions can be reconciled with modern ever-evolving provisional science is for ancient religion to change as obsolete perceptions are proven to be false, and scientific discoveries are proven to be true. (The Earth rotates and orbits the sun.) In a reciprocal way, scientists must accept the simple fact that something timeless (and much-more majestic than a human mind) created Space and Time, and the well-ordered observable cosmos, of which we are all part.
The irrefutable scientific principle of Psychoneuroimmunology (by whatever name you choose to call it) is an important part of living in harmony with Nature, and with each other, since our own mental images influence those of many others in our lifetime.
Dishonest humans often attempt to deceive others, BUT, it is impossible to “lie” to the Spirit that our Creator placed within each of us. We cannot hide from our Pneuma. It knows our every thought and action in a lifetime. It is timeless and everlasting. It breathes life into our Earthly body, helps heal us for a time, and is the essence of our eternal soul, long after our physical body predictably returns to the dust of the universe. If anything continues to exist after the death of our body, it is our Pneuma, which knows our innermost soul.
The above is merely speculative hypothesis, not divine inspiration or revelation. We cannot PROVE these spiritual things scientifically. We do not know where the Pneuma resides physiologically, or how it does what it does. BUT, polls suggest that 95% of us “feel” deep down inside that something mystical and spiritual influences our life on Earth. We can now scientifically measure the psychological effect physiologically.
We should somehow learn to love our neighbors as ourselves – Unselfishly want for our brothers what we want for ourselves. If we live our lives in compassionate Universal Consciousness, so we have nothing to fear from death, we should all live longer and happier on Earth, in harmony with the Nature of the Pneuma that our Creator gave us. We will be well prepared for the moment of our inevitable death, and beyond. It is very sad when we see anyone reject this wonderful eternal free gift from God, who we have Free Will to worship (or not) as we see fit - in Spirit and in Truth.
My happy wife and I give thanks in all things, hold hands and pray every day: “Thy Will Be Done” – to align our minds and spirit to forever live in harmony with Nature. We are convinced that it is our source of daily health and happiness. We have nothing to fear from death. We are called to a high purpose, and will live together joyfully until our destiny on Earth has been fulfilled. We wish for you the same.
Galileo Galilei – The Steadfast Scientific Father of Modern Physics, who successfully opposed dogmatic status-quo stupidity:
“By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox.”
“All Truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.”
“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us
with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.”
Gravity, electromagnetism, and the sub-atomic forces of physics have been constant as far as our modern remote-sensing instruments can tell. We most-certainly do not understand it all, but that does not make the Laws of Nature any less True.
The Universe is clearly expanding. We can observe it with our eyes in the skies. The rate of expansion is accelerating. We now call this unknown force “Dark Energy.” It makes up 74% of the universe. Dark Energy is a form of “anti-gravity.” We do not have a clue how it works. We cannot control gravity or anti-gravity, but they both are surely there.
We cannot see the wind, but we can see and hear it blowing through God’s trees, and we have learned how to convert wind energy into useful electricity. We have many new things yet to learn about the Science of God’s Nature, which we anticipate enthusiastically with great joy.
Science Is Provisional – It changes every year as exciting new discoveries are made. The Internet lets us share new scientific facts around the world more rapidly than ever before, BUT, we must learn how to discern what is provable scientific fact, versus lies and misperceptions. We must learn how to quickly assimilate new Truths, and the innovations that they imply.
Unlike slowly-emerging human scientific understanding, God’s Laws are immutable, timeless, and never ending. God is NOT capricious or arbitrary. God does not learn new things or change Universal Laws at the request of humans. Jesus said that God already knew what we need before we pray. Jesus taught His disciples that the only prayer that makes sense is “Thy will be done” – to align our mortal mind with the unchanging Nature of God’s Universal Laws (which we have yet to fully understand scientifically). When we study Nature's Laws, we learn God's will. God is not reveal by mystic spiritual dreams, but by science.
The science of Nature is timeless and unchangeable - only human perception changes over time. We need a solid foundation.
We need a Compelling Shared Vision of the Future, based on indisputable, unchangeable, demonstrable scientific Truth.
Most religious beliefs are inconsistently held around the world. The science of gravity cannot be disputed by anyone,
although it is very-likely to be refined over time, as we eventually learn how to control gravity, and dark-energy anti-gravity.
Praying selfishly for God to suspend the Laws of Nature is silly and unsupported by anything written in the Bible. Nowhere does it say “Pray for a miracle” (even though proven-corrupt televangelist's often have). If a miracle were to occur, and God suspended gravity for only an instant, all galaxies would explode. What people erroneously call “miracles” are often scientific misunderstanding of God’s never-changing Universal Laws of Nature. Human perception constantly changes.
The Creator of the Universe does not.
Men walking on the Moon seemed like an “impossible miracle” half a century ago. It actually was merely a matter of humans gaining a better understanding Natural Physics. No spacecraft or airplane has ever “defied the law of gravity.” We merely overcome it. God did NOT have to change anything for man to safely travel to the Moon and back. The Universal Laws of Nature that apply were set forth at the beginning of Time, and we believe they will remain as long as this Universe continues to exit.
We know a lot more about the “miracle” of birth than we ever did before. We can assist it in a laboratory Petri dish, even though a human cannot create life out of inert dirt today. If we were to learn how to create life from inert dirt tomorrow, it would not be a “miracle” – merely better human understanding of science. God has given us a curious mind to investigate Nature, and apply what we learn. We make avoidable mistakes every day, but that itself is part of the learning process.
Albert Einstein explained the Nature of the interwoven fabric of Space and Time that God created at the beginning of the Universe. Einstein’s theory was scientifically demonstrated a century ago, as distant stellar light passed around our Sun.
We now know for certain that Time is based on the relative speed of objects. Man-made Global Positioning Satellites encircling the Earth at orbital speed clearly experience Time at a different rate than the same matching clocks do at the GPS control center on Earth. These GPS satellite clocks MUST be reset and re-synchronized every day for our GPS navigation systems to work properly. You may not understand relativity, but it's still True.
As objects approach the speed of light, Time progresses for them at a very-different rate. Einstein’s 1905 e=mc2 explains that as solid matter approaches the speed of light, it turns into pure energy (the basis of all modern nuclear energy). Superstring theory says matter and forces are the same thing.
It appears that at the theoretical “Big Bang”, the Creator of the Universe released infinitely more energy than the sum total of all deadly man-made atomic bombs in combination. Dr. Carl Sagan (author of “Cosmos”) said that “If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must begin by first creating the Universe.” (chuckle)
No human even comes close to knowing HOW to make apple pie from scratch in the foreseeable future. You will not find the COMPLETE recipe anywhere on the entire worldwide web. It is almost infinitely beyond the sum total accumulated knowledge of the world's best human scientists that have ever lived on Earth. All we can do is study Nature, and pray: "Thy will be done" to align our mere mortal minds with the perfect plan of the Majestic Creator of the Universe.
Before God created the flexible fabric of Space and Time, the concept of Time simply did not exist. In fact, the word “before” had no meaning at all (without any sense of Time).
Since the Creator of the Universe existed when Time did not, by definition, GOD IS TIMELESS, and therefore by implication, ETERNAL. Humans experience Time and Space as a linear sequence of events and distinct locations. The Creator of the Universe has no such human limitations – “With God all things are possible.”
Albert Einstein gave us unprecedented scientific insight into the Space / Time Nature of the Universe. In his later years, Einstein concluded scientifically that the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously as dimensions of the interwoven flexible fabric of Space and Time. In 1952, in his book Relativity, while discussing Minkowski's Space World interpretation of his own theory of Relativity, Einstein wrote: "Since there exists in this four dimensional (4D) structure (of 3D Space plus Time) no longer any sections which represent 'now' objectively, the concepts of 'happening' and 'becoming' are indeed not completely suspended, but yet complicated. It appears therefore more natural to think of physical reality as a four dimensional existence, instead of, as hitherto, the evolution of a three dimensional (3D) existence" (moving through Time as a linear sequence of events). Einstein's insight illuminates the ancient point of view that the timeless creator of the universe is the same yesterday, today and forever - The weaver of the fabric of Space AND Time may be omnipresent in it, not limited to a linear series of human events in Time.
Every place in the Universe where there is a place, our Omnipresent Living God is concurrently always there, from the smallest subatomic law of quantum physics, to the gravity, black holes, and dark energy anti-gravity that give structure to hundreds of billions of visible galaxies.
God (and God’s handiwork) will always be simultaneously present everywhere in Creation, for all Time, AND beyond.
Can The Creator of the Universe accurately predict the weather on Earth tomorrow?
ABSOLUTELY! Can God predict Earth’s weather 10,000 years in the future? There is no need. God is ALREADY THERE RIGHT NOW. Our unchanging, timeless, eternal, Omnipresent God, Creator of the entire Universe is simultaneously our Yesterday, Today, and Forever, throughout timeless eternity. When our body dies, God’s Spirit within us will surly be eternal, even beyond the end of the Universe as we know it today. We may speculate, but we have no scientific proof of how many universes have ever existed, how many exist now, or how many will exist in the future, but our Creator most-certainly knows all.
Scientifically-flawed Apostle’s Creed catechism often taught to naïve religious adolescents:“As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.”
The Truth: “The world in its present form is passing away.” - 1 Corinthians 7:31
Earth was apparently NOT created first, and then light and the rest of the universe. Earth did not exist until roughly 9 billion years after the theoretical Big Bang. Earth had a beginning. Earth will one day have an end. Our world is NOT timeless or eternal.
Our Sun will likely expand to engulf and incinerate the Earth. All of our solar system will cease to exist. The Milky Way will collide with the Andromeda galaxy, but, GOD IS TIMELESS and ETERNAL. The ongoing creation and destruction of stars is trivial in the grand scheme of things, but God is aware of the birth and death of the tiniest life forms in the Universe, including humans.
If our Creator existed before Time, and we are God’s Creation, then God's Spirit Within Us Is Also Timeless.
My precious mother wanted "Amazing Grace" to be sung at her funeral, when she went to her well-deserved reward. Humans have no scientific proof of precisely what spiritual life after death will be like, but these profound simple words will always ring clear in my own ears:
“When we’ve been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the Sun, we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we first begun.”
As a second-generation research scientist, and proven professional earthly futurist, I am convinced that the above words will remain forever True. The wonderful memory of my loving father and mother shines brightly inside me today. Our Timeless Spirits will always commune with our majestic Creator, although humans on Earth cannot yet begin to explain it scientifically.
"What happens after our inevitable death" has been controversial since long before Jesus. The Pharisees of His day believed in life after death, but the Sadducees (Sad you see) did not.
Those who now say: “God Is Dead” and who deny the everlasting Compassionate Nature and Spirit of the Creator of the Universe (which is within all of us) apparently want to justify their unsustainable selfish exploitive detrimental lifestyle choices, and delude themselves into thinking that their actions on Earth will have no lasting consequences for them, or their posterity. Do you agree? WE BELIEVE THAT ACTIONS DO HAVE CONSEQUENCES. At an absolute minimum, our posterity will judge us.
I grew up in what used to be called “Indian Territory”, not far from Will Rogers’ home.
I lived on Tecumseh Street, named after the great Shawnee Indian Chief who wrote:
“LIVE YOUR LIFE THAT THE FEAR OF DEATH CAN NEVER ENTER YOUR HEART"
"We have nothing to fear but fear itself" - Franklin D. Roosevelt, et.al.
"No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death" - Plato
The fear of death is an admission of guilt. Life is much more pleasant and productive after you eliminate fear.
"When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled
with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray
for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way."
"Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over The Great Divide.
Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.” - Tecumseh
"Those who apply themselves to philosophy in the proper way are doing no more nor less than
to prepare themselves for the moment of dying and the state of death." – Plato

Eternity is a very-long non-Time. The Universe had a beginning. It will most-likely eventually have a dramatic end. BUT, The Timeless Creator of the Universe will not. The Spirit that God placed inside all of us is most surely also timeless and eternal. Many people feel that our Spirit was created in God’s own image (but not our mortal bodies or un-Godly thoughts).
We must turn away from our unsustainable lifestyle, ask forgiveness from God and our posterity, and teach others to spend the rest of our earthly existence living an abundant life in harmony with Nature, and with each other, in Eternal Universal Consciousness, giving endless thanks for all that is good.
Every decision does have consequences, today and in the future. We have Free Will to choose. Our Earthly stewardship will be judged by posterity, and by the Creator of the Universe. Our earthly bodies surly must die. What kind of legacy will our internal Spirit leave for others on Earth in the future? Baby Boomers received more from their parents than any previous human generation. And yet, Baby Boomers are leaving a crumbling unsustainable infrastructure, huge debt, and a dying Earth.
I am totally prepared to meet my maker today. I am part of God’s great plan. I have absolutely no fear of death, but I am very curious, as any scientist must be. My purpose for life has obviously yet to be completely fulfilled. For some reason, I remain alive to write these words today.
When the rest of my purpose has been completely fulfilled, I will join many others at the side of our Compassionate Creator forever. I have few few clues what the scientific specifics will be, although I've read the inconsistent speculations of many before me. I am confident that life after death will be timeless. I look forward to that non-Time, not knowing the details, but I am very eager to be part of God’s Everlasting Truth. In my imagination, I am already living there today. I do not
want those who have loved me to be sad when I cross over The Great Divide - We will be together again in eternity forever more.
Do you honestly believe that the Universe will cease to exist when YOU die? Will your Spirit die with your body?
Do you egotistically believe that YOU are the center of the Universe, independent of God?
Do you think you would have ever taken your first breath of air, without God’s green trees?
Since the moment that Space and Time were first woven together, God provided abundantly for our every conceivable need. All we need do to survive, prosper, and thrive is learn the provable science of HOW to live in harmony with God’s Abundant Nature. We merely need accept God’s bountiful natural gifts, and become good stewards of them, passing a clean, green Earth on to our precious posterity. Life on Earth is an opportunity for us to “learn how to learn” the great Truths of the Nature of the majestic Creator of the Universe. We pray "Thy will be done" and in all things we will forever give thanks and praise.
We must immediately STOP living an unsustainable lifestyle - Destroying our own habitat. The terrible mistakes we’ve made for 150 years must now come to an abrupt end, or WE WILL, in the 21 century. We have 2 choices:
(1) Nature’s Abundant Sustainable Way, or
(2) Die Like Dumb Dinosaurs.
“Wait and see” did NOT save the naïve unchanging dinosaurs. Mammals evolved because we were able to rapidly adapt to the new environment. Ignoring scientific facts does NOT make them go away today.
Johnny Appleseed traveled the early American frontier, teaching pioneers to
plant fruit trees for their grandchildren.
What legacy will WE leave for ours? Do you care at all? Do you demand immediate gratification, or sustainable happiness?
We sincerely wish all of our readers an Abundant New Life In Harmony With Nature
Lifelong Learning In An Ever-Expanding Universe Of Endless Possibilities tm
