The power of truth is born in clarity by the conception of divine respect.

The self expression of truth can be a powerful sword.  Hence, the birthing of truth within us is a daunting precipice.  We come to a place in ourselves where our choices, that we’ve made from truth made known to us through God by our higher selves, cause us to see ourselves and our environment clearly.

In this place, our internal judgement chair, we see half truths, shades of truth, opinions of truth; that which we’ve expressed and those sorts of expressions of truth from others around us.  We also see the light of truth that God has given us to make our choices.  This place of vision, once we’ve seen it, has the potential to unsettle our living relationship experiences.   Do we make the choice for our highest good, that which God has made known to us through our higher selves?  Do we keep up with the Jones’?  Do we stay within the confines of social norms?  Do we compete?

For what?  For ownership of truth?  To be the best?  A six sigma entity?  The best corporation?  The best government?  A goddess?  A god?  If we act upon these things only from a perspective of competition, acquisition, possession, and/or opportunism to name a few,  then we lose sight of the true power of truth.  And we will lose the gifts God gives us to live His energy in our unique creativity.

Truth, in its purest form, is God.  On earth He creates this in the likeness of a sweet, gurgling brook, an evergreen forest, a thunder and lightening storm, the soil that is our earth we walk upon.  Truth, in its purest form, can not be modified or diluted or shaded.  It can however turn into these forms, when we allow it to bend these ways within the intent of our self expressions.  These variations of truth, cloud our ability to see our unique creative potential and stifle our ability to live Divine Respect, within ourselves and in the relationships within our environment.  This limits our ability to create abundance in our lives.

Divinely respecting the truth of who we are and living it, causes us to receive more from God.  He gives us a flow of living miracles in our lives, despite the crosses we bear.  These living miracles come as opportunity knocking and our lives become filled with joy when we act upon these opportunities given us through faith in living God’s light within our choices.

One must cross a bridge first to receive these blessings.  That is, if we choose to make choices by the light of God within us, we make it to the other side of the bridge….

To miracles that bring joy in our lives.  This makes our walk peaceful in the midst of environmental adversities, universal psycho-babble and the ways of living by those around us.

The Power Is The LORD In Me

Photo, "The Power Is The LORD In Me," and biblical scripture, Micah 4:10-13 Peaceful Latter Days can be found in my book, Walking On HIS Footstool, pages 156-157.


Micah 4:10-13  Peaceful Latter Days

“Writhe and labor to give birth,
Daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in childbirth;
For now you will go out of the city,
Dwell in the field,
And go to Babylon.
There you will be rescued.
There the LORD will redeem you
From the hand of your enemies.

And now many nations have been assembled against you
Who say, “Let her be polluted,
And let our eyes gloat over Zion.”

But they do not know the thoughts of the LORD,
And they do not understand His purpose;
For He has gathered them like sheaves to the threshing floor.

Arise and thresh, daughter of Zion,
For your horn I will make iron,
And your hoofs I will make bronze.
That you may pulverize many peoples,
That you may devote to the LORD their unjust gain,
And their wealth to the LORD of all the earth.

The power of truth belongs to God.  When we realize this, He helps us navigate safely and successfully in all of our life efforts, through times of reward and times of adversity.

A Gift Of Three Graces

This Bronze disc was a gift to our Okinawan Karate Masters from my Karate Master, Sensei Joe Gilbert. The photo of this disc and the following poem I wrote for the Okinawan Karate Masters, as a tribute for the wonderful gift of their teaching to me.

Within the circle of reverence
That resides in my heart,
I am given three graces
To embody
The warrior spirit.

From this place
I know
I have the power to cut,
Or I have the compassion to honor
The place of reverence
Where our seed of divine respect lies.

To know deeply this flower of beauty
Makes me a sword of honor.

I am the tiger
When my grip is a powerful claw
And I reach with inner strength.

I am the dragon
When I move my light
With grounded, determined precision.

I am the crane
When I am patience and listen with reverence,
To use as one these three graces my spirit has given me.
