so much going on, from little things like a fellow BC'er suffering some old fashioned existential angst to another contributer in the middle of Jerusalem in the middle of a War
one can't help but be drawn in by both the micro and the macro nowadays, just as one cannot help but Wonder where IS the Spirit(s) that so much Death and War have been caused by over the centuries
since there is only one Entity on that Plane who will take my Calls, i figured it may be time to get some Answers, as best as i am able, from the Source… so i dropped the metaphysical Dime, left a Message…. and waited for the Callback
didn't take long, really
you Called? rumbled the Voice in my skull… "yes, yes i did, O Wise and Mighty…"
cut that out, you know I do not have much patience for simpering bipeds, why have you Called?
"well, i was Wondering, if you have the Time, of course… if you could help me Understand a bit better… maybe Answer a few questions?"
ever see a 39 feet high at the shoulder elephant shrug? it's like watching a house wiggle
sure, why not
now i was getting excited, finally… some Insight
"well, you see.. there's a lot of strife on Earth right now, has been for quite a while really… and a lot of it could be cleared up if God would just make his Will known… you know, like he used to in the Bible and all…a lot of that is what a lot of the fighting is about, arguing over Scripural things…and i was Wondering why He doesn't just set the record straight or something…."
which One are you talking about? doesn't matter, really…they are all playing fizzbin, the Game's been going for a while now. Zeus went out early but Odin is still hanging in there…YHWH is still going, but a little behind, Jehovah and Allah are tied…they kicked Lucifer, Satan and Loki out for cheating so Hades went off to skulk, Vishnu is playing 3 hands and a bunch of the others come in and out on occasion…it's a pretty big Game…
"wait a minute, let me get this right…they're…playing….cards?"
well, yes…a little bit of Fun, what's wrong with that?
"oh..no…nothing, of course…i'm just a bit…um…suprised? stunned perhaps, taken off guard, certainly…i mean, i had thought they invented fizzbin on the tv show Star Trek…?"
no, that was Inspired…it was a very tight Round that week, and some of the Excitement spilled over into your Dimension…it was the same week the Enlightened started the pool to see how much longer the Dalai Lama would reIncarnate…Gandhi thinks he will stick it out , but Jesus and Buddha are betting this is the last One
"that's just Incredible! but whose minding the store, so to speak?"
now you are starting to delve into the Metaphysical…I'll try and be careful so your head doesn't explode like the last one…every so often, one of Us will touch a Messenger, and give unto them the Word and the Message…but it's what you furless bipeds DO with it that causes so much Entropy rather than Harmony, that whole Free Will thing you know
"that's Amazing! but when was the last time? Ghandi? Dr. King?"
well… actually, it was Me less than 20 of your years ago…I Spoke to two Men, Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon…I had decided that two Messengers might do better… but they were stoned, and wrote It up as a screenplay instead… not a bad movie, it was Funny, and they did get the Message across…"Be Excellent to each other"
"waitaminnit here, you're telling me that the latest Gospel was Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure? now, my head IS gonna explode…"
you have to admit it is a much more modern Wording than "do unto others as you would have others do unto you"…it uses fewer Words…pithy, you could say….
what you bipeds have to Learn is that We are all just Facets of the same Gem, and the Message is always the same…just because you Perceive differences, or some corrupt leaders come along and tell you to do something against the Message doesn't mean you are supposed to kill each other over it….I told the Others that letting you evolve thumbs was a bad Idea, first thing you did was grab a stick and start clubbing each other…so We Knew the Message would be required, and Facets become Incarnate to fulfill the need, besides it gives Us someone to talk to, even if it is Ourselves…and even We like to "Party on, dudes" and Enjoy, you know…have some Fun…well, most of Us anyway…a few are pretty dour sometimes…Prometheus hangs out with the Enlightened because he is still pissed at Zeus…but feces Happen
that is more than enough for Now, did you bring my peanuts?
"of course i did…most humbly Offered… and thanks so much for Speaking with me…"
but the Connection went dead the picosecond he got the peanuts…
and i was left Alone.
