THE FLESH BEAST
(Has risen again)
Considering last weeks poem and rant I thought it fitting to share this week about the “Flesh Beast”. I do not apologize or regret what I wrote because it was true but what I do regret is letting that situation steal a lot of days from me. We all have a flesh beast and it lies in our souls, it is our mind, will and emotions. The last few years I have educated myself in the power of the mind (thought life). Everything is birthed from our thoughts every function of the body, every word, every emotion, all of our actions and decisions so, it makes sense that we should take regular inventory of our thoughts. Our thoughts lead us, they fuel emotions and then we react based on those emotions. I have heard that we cannot help what comes into our minds but…we can take control of the thought once it is there. The times we are living in are fleshly times (emotional). Everyone seems to be doing whatever they want based solely upon their emotions, not on intellect, and it is creating chaos. No-one seems to be using their minds to benefit themselves or the world. The accepted mentality today is, if it feels good do it. This is dangerous. We have millions of untamed beasts doing and saying as they please with absolute no respect for others. This is unacceptable. We have a responsibility to examine our thoughts and decide whether or not it is a healthy thought, or a toxic thought, one that should be embraced or one that should be ignored. We also need to educate ourselves on the power of words. The principle of the power of words has existed from the beginning of time. Think about how one word can destroy and one word can make someones day. Think for a moment how words have created messes and blessings for you. We are the beasts that need tamed on this earth today. Our problems are PEOPLE PROBLEMS and that is so sad because we can fix the problems, but choose to set idly by in ignorance and pride and watch it burn. Our words kindle the fires that we are witnessing and the ones who want to feed on the past allow no room for the future.
What if…everyone would be accountable
What if…everyone would examine their thought life and choose positive thoughts, rejecting evil negative thoughts
What if…everyone was careful choosing their words
What if…everyone decided they were not going to do anything except encourage others
What if…everyone would let go of the past and look to the future
What if…everyone would stop living in a continual pity party
What if…everyone chose to count and magnify their blessings, rather than complain all through-out the day
What if…everyone decided to focus on what they do have instead of what they do not have
What if…everyone would stop making excuses for ignorance
What if…everyone would accept that we are all different
What if…everyone would see us as ONE RACE which is THE HUMAN RACE
I saw a woman in a third world country, she lived in a hut with a dirt floor. She was crippled and could only crawl around all day. She had blocks strapped on her hands to help her crawl. The only thing that this woman was praying for and wanted was a wheelchair so she could better take care of her children. I wept and felt so ashamed, I do not consider myself to be a complainer but like everyone I do complain in life. It is a habit that I am working on breaking. Some people make complaining a sport. Sometimes when I complain I remember that woman crawling on the ground all day. She got her wheelchair Bless God! She did not pray for a house with actual wood floors, she did not pray for clothes even though hers was ragged and torn. She did not pray for wealth. She did not pray for furniture or any other luxury she prayed for a wheelchair. We need to “TAKE THOUGHT” of how very much we have, and are blessed with. While people are fighting over silly stuff there are people just like her that have nothing and are crawling around. People in various parts of the world are devastated by unimaginable loss and destruction. While people are using their energy to stir up hate via protests and other silly dramas, someone is dying of cancer wishing they had their energy to simply do their dishes. When the woman received her wheelchair you would have thought that she had just been given millions. It was touching and has remained with me. Let us change our minds. Let us realize that we can accept a thought or reject it. We do not have to be prisoners of our thoughts and feelings. It has been challenging to stay on-top of my thoughts so to speak especially this year. We have many battles. We have had many hardships. I would like to say that I handled everyone of them with a A+ but sadly being human I did not, but I am trying to do better, learning more and more.
“Words” the worst thing we can do is give a voice to the negative thoughts. So if you are having negative thoughts do not ever birth them by speaking it. How many people claim disease with phrases like “my diabetes, my heart condition, my cancer, or how many say things like; my bad temper, or my anxiety. Most of us who say these things believe that we cant help it. I have been guilty of saying things like this but thankfully we can learn to change mental habits that have hindered us in life.
I am not saying deny those things, but you do not have to give it more life and power over you by calling it out constantly. Obviously if you have these problems you should not pretend that you don’t, but neither should you magnify it to the point of it consuming you. I recommend saying, this disease is leaving, I am getting better everyday, I am strong. There is a spiritual realm whether you choose to believe it or not and there are spiritual consequences just as there are natural consequences for what we do. The spirit world is in constant operation just as our natural world is. Our words, confessions, and declarations are pulling from the spirit realm. If you constantly say I am clumsy what happens? You seem to have accident after accident why? It is because of this principle I am sharing. I am not saying you can have anything you want by speaking it but I am saying if you say something long enough it will be your reality whether negative or positive. We clearly see the power of good and evil upon earth today and we are influenced by our thoughts to be one or the other. All that is going on today is a product of our thoughts. We have to make the mind and mouth connection. Use our mouth to bless and not curse, to spread love and not hate. This is a choice and it could change our world drastically. I find being able to control my thoughts and choose my words very exciting. I do not have to think whatever falls into my head, and I do not have to say whatever I feel like saying. I can choose! Now that is power! It is a daily battle and I do not always win but..I am winning more than losing. My biggest issue is others stupid choices consuming me. I do what I can to get the poison out of my system hence “Screaming on paper” and other things but still if I do not take control of my thoughts I will stay in the miserable condition of depression, anger, bitterness and so forth and so on. When your life seems out of control and your emotions are a messed up, think about what you have been thinking about. There is a proverb which reads “As a man thinks in his heart(mind) so is he. What we think about is usually the root of our unhappiness. Choose right thoughts. The power of choice is amazing and sadly we are seeing people abuse that power daily. Let us start thinking about our thought life and be more careful in what we are saying, The wisest book ever written says that we have the power to choose life or death the blessings, or the curses and our minds and mouth determine what the outcome will be. I have dealt with crooks from all sides this year, I have grieved for someone in my life who is consistently making bad choices finding myself regularly releasing them so I can maintain peace and joy. My cousin reminded me just today that we all have the control factor and how it only creates strife and bad moods. How true she was and how much I needed to hear it. How many of us waste our lives on someones elses poor decisions and drama? My goal is to learn to disassociate my feelings from others dramas and choose life. I have battled this year and I intend to win the war!
What is the result of the flesh beast
pity parties, no accountability
excuses, excuses, excuses
and the most prevalent today AN ENTITLEMENT ATTITUDE!
We alone have the POWER to CHANGE. We alone can TAME THE BEAST IN OURSELVES! Let us again remember little Gabriel that I wrote about a few months ago. Let us give what he never got which was love and acceptance. Let us remember how he was bullied literally to death. Let us stop being adult bullies and choose good thoughts that will birth good emotions, therefore good actions so our world can begin to heal. We the people have mistreated her! We the people have invited all of the madness that we are seeing each day! We the people have bruised her and have invited all kinds of hate and dysfunction and diseases to her by our own thinking and all that is birthed from that thinking. Let us be smarter than this and take control.
I want to share the lyrics of a song by a band called Creed the song is called “What if”
I cant find the rhyme
in all my reason, lost sense of time and all seasons
Feel I’ve been beaten down
by the words of man
that have no ground
Cant sleep beneath the trees of wisdom
When your ax has cut the roots that feed them
Forked tongues in bitter mouths
Can drive a man to bleed from the inside out
What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?
I’ve seen the wicked fruit of your vine
Destroy the man who lacks a strong mind
Human pride sings a vengeful song
Inspired by the times
you’ve been walked on
My stage is shared by many millions
who lift their hands up high because they feel this
We are one We are strong
The more you hold us down
The more we press on
What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?
I know I cant hold the hate inside my mind
Cause what consumes your thoughts controls your life
So I’ll just ask a question
A lonely simple question
I’ll just ask one question
What if… what if I (4 times)
What if your words could be judged like a crime?
Solo again what if I?
Awesome lyrics I recommend that you look up this song and rock out and take the wisdom that is in it. I especially like the lyric “I know I cant hold the hate inside my mind, Cause what consumes your thoughts controls your life.” Sounds like to me he understood the principle I am sharing with all of you. Let us be ready listeners and divorce ignorance and embrace wisdom.
Another day, Another page
