ROOT OF

"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs."
__1 Timothy 6:10

It is MONEY, not the LOVE of it that is the issue, the true problem.

Love, in and of itself, is never a problem, WANT and NEED, or better yet- the WANT and the conundrum of its very REQUIREMENT for our survival IS the problem, it's creation and our blind use of it is logically the ROOT.

In other words, let's leave LOVE out of it altogether and deal with the facts instead. If money were not made by us as a requirement for our survival, we'd find ourselves in a much better position to argue of its need and our want of it. MRP

ILLUSORY LOVE

Cursed be he above all others who's enslaved by love of money. Money takes the place of brothers, Money takes the place of parents, Money brings us war and slaughter." __Anacreon 
Anacreon, all of humankind are doomed when money and money alone is required for their survival.
Money takes the place of kinship. Money takes the place of justice. Money smothers the hope for peace. 
Money isn't the root, humankind is, they created it. __MRP

SELF-RIGHTEOUS SALVATION

The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation. __Charles Spurgeon
Yet according to your own scripture, brother Spurgeon, I must look to myself in deciding/choosing whether to be saved or to perish. Isn't my choosing to accept salvation the act of looking to myself (belief) in order to secure that which has already been given?

DIAMOND BRICK

"A diamond with a flaw is more valuable than a brick without a flaw."  __William J. H. Boetcker


Putting a monetary value upon anything, natural or otherwise, is the greatest flaw of humankind. __Mark Richard Prime

BEST LAID PLANS

The best laid plans of mice and humankind. Should've heeded their warning signs, they were loud and clear, you completely missed 'em, or... you simply chose not to listen.

ME, I AM

A dear friend once asked me to describe myself, my passion and place in the world...

At that time I couldn't formulate a meaningful answer other than "I am", and though this seemed to satisfy the moment, I have had much time, years, to think on it...

I am. I am the scribe of my belief in my story in the present, the now of our breathing story. I am a scribe that I might sense the story's movement within the center of Love and Peace.

I am Love, Peace and Laughter and I am Freedom and Goodness that I might salvage the truth beneath my feet and before me.

I am the Love and Peace gardener, so to speak, the scribe of my physical and spiritual experience.

I am. My story is yours and your story is mine. I am. We are. One.

Belief + Reality = Actuality

We humans are believers by default, I mean, truly, what choice did/do we have as to our "thoughts" of "why", "who", "what" "where" and even "when"? 
So, if our "system" of "belief" was/is inevitable and a natural part of our "thought" process, then our use of such is rather important to our subsistence. Our "beliefs", especially those that carry great weight in our survival, logically need/should be nearer to reality than fantasy in order to stave off our prideful and stubborn absolutes" that have us imagining we "know" anything of what comes after we "shuffle off this mortal coil" and that have us acting in ways that do not advance our current state of humanity toward Home, the provider of all we need, and that has us disregarding our kinship of one another. 
Yes, our systems of belief AND our systems of reality need be sustainable, nearer to the "truth&q…

PRIDEFUL STORIES

https://www.facebook.com/TheRichieDrenz/videos/255496094651741/
Pride goeth before the fall, my brothers. That's the truth of the matter that I believe I just witnessed in this video. 
I believe that the "knowledge" of the man called Jesus Christ as it is written in the bible, or any other book, is one thing, but the One Truth, my brethren, is another matter entirely. 
I believe Creation's story resides within the constant flux, as do all things, including we humans, so our story, logically speaking, has yet to be fully written. I humbly believe the story is meant to continue, not end or come again or be pridefully extinguished. It is now that we are to continue "creating" a story worth repeating,  not then, now and now and now.
I could be wrong, of that I've not one doubt, I say with a humble righteousness. 
I pray we, humankind, begin to converse of the possibilities and leave the absolutes out of it, we'll thank God we did.
Peace and Love

ODE TO RAYAN AND THE CHILDREN

Humanity, why, in our present age,  must one more child be silenced by rage? 
We've waited so long for love! 
We've wept more than enough!
God, bring down your thunder upon damnable war! 
Bring your lightening and silence its roar!
Now! Now! Now begin!
We're ready to love! 
Bring your wind!
We've imagined you long enough! 
Begin!

DISINGENUOUS NEGOTIATION

One case of plastic bottled water and two packs of cigarillos? Way to disingenuously negotiate, Chevron! Shame on you! You needn't belittle a native peoples as you continue to willfully demean the land of all continents for you do not seem to understand the language of either. 
There is but one action you should take following this lesson, Chevron; stand down your greedy agenda, for  it is to be known in all languages, none of which you seem to speak or understand... MRP

Prehistoric Vote

Voting is the dinosaur. 
We keep doing the same thing every (s)election cycle, and, with 24/7 "news", an election cycle is 364 days longer than a politician can keep his or her "promises". And, yes, Trump is a politician worth 15 billion. But if Trump is (s)elected to be the next "puppet" to continue to divide us, "politically correct" or not, pun intended, then nothing changes, save for the letter (D or R (and/or I) associated with the "puppet". 
We the People, brothers and sisters all, are being divided by those who continue to pull the strings as we imagine our (s)electoral process makes even a smidgen of an actual difference as to "who" or "what" is  the next marionette in chief... 
Let's put an end to this destructive cycle and our willful participation in our own enslavement by those that profit greatly from our divisions and our ignorance before We the People become extinct...
