Day Fifty Seven… The Forces of Good and Evil …07/06/15

What a #TravelingBlog this has turned out to be… It’s a hard life living in a #hotel with a #jacuzzi but at least I learned how to spell the word jacuzzi… lol… Took me like 5 minutes to find the correct spelling… I was messing that word up so much even spell check had no clue what I was talking about…

So, I got up, ate breakfast which #TheQualityInn provides…. They have a tiny little breakfast nook that is the equivalent of a larger house kitchen with two tables… Their spread is quite impressive considering nothing is cooked… They have egg and cheese sandwiches you can heat up… Three different types of cereals… bagels, muffins, danishes, yogurt, coffee, O.J. and toast… Obviously I threw the #GlutenFree diet out the window for a few days but I always let myself have some… I just try to limit it because I know how much it affects my digestion and how I feel throughout the day…

After #breakfast I called #LakevilleServiceStation and the #MasterMechanic Dave, that’s the guy who survived a brain tumor twice, called me back… He told me he can definitely fix her and he didn’t forsee any problem with getting parts… Although #GeorgieBoy has been out of business since the beginning of that awful recession we endured, #TheMillenniumFalcon has a very common #ChevyEngine which are used in numerous #vehicles, so parts aren’t that hard to find… Thank God something has worked in my favor… I shouldn’t speak so soon… lol.

I had to make my way down there to give them a deposit… This I found odd considering they had my #RV and all of my shit that is stored inside…. Isn’t that enough of a deposit? Who knows, there may be laws that would allow me to legally take it off the lot regardless, considering it’s my home, so I didn’t question their policy… At this point I just go with the flow… But when I got there they informed me they didn’t take #AmericanExpress…. Now, I couldn’t help but get pissy about this with them…. How can you be an #EmergencyTowTruckCompany and not accept all #CreditCards especially considering the high costs of situations like these and the fact the customers may only have that card for payment…

So, I told them lets pay via #PayPal… Of course they didn’t do that either… So I told them we have to find a way to use this #AmexCard because I am not emptying my bank account to pay and leaving myself with minimal cash… They told me I should try calling #Amex and see if they can #WesternUnion me the cash…

Folks, you can say what you want about American Express… I know #vendors hate them because of their fees but when it comes to #CustomerCare, they rock! Maybe they put their #customers before the #BigBusinesses like all companies should… That’s my interpretation of their policies and I commend them on it!

So, I got a nice lady on the phone that informed me they do #CashAdvances FOR FREE in #EmergencySituations… They called the #TowCompany to confirm the pickle I was in and then they took me through a lengthy security process… There was a problem that made my heart skip a beat when they asked me to tell them the height that appears on my Driver’s License… I told them 5’9” and somehow that was wrong and if any other questions were wrong we would be locked out of my account for 72 hours… It was like a damn game show, trying to get my facts straight… How I became a different height in their computer system is beyond me… I tell you, everything I do hits major obstacles almost every time, but thats my life and I have learned to laugh and embrace it because I definitely can’t fight it… lol…

Finally, it was all set… Amex #wired me the money to a Western Union about 2 1/2 miles away… I made sure to obnoxiously promote American Express to the #TowCompany, who I still support regardless, explaining that they have never let me down unlike all the other companies out there that consistently do… They just nodded at me like I was crazy… A common reaction from a company when it comes to a customer explaining common sense… It’s their choice to not take Amex but if you are a tow company you should have some other outlet for someone to pay by Amex when they are stuck between a rock and a hard place… This is the 21st Century you know… I’m just saying… But other than this, Lakeville Service Station has been awesome… Sorry for the harsh words but I try to make this blog about transparency and to do that, I have to try to stick to the truth…

But I’m the crazy one who puts people before money… I don’t understand our thinking when it comes to this issue… I think anyone who puts a piece of paper, that is designed to represent trade, before a human being is crazy… If you want proof of the results of such ideology, look at what the world has become all in the guise of greed! I’ll stay crazy thank you! I want no part of this #GreedySystem and will try to avoid it at all costs… I know #Jesus has my back on this one… lol…

IMG_1379IMG_1547

This nice lady Trudy, who works there, gave me a ride to Western Union… She was telling me about the struggles in her life and we both bitched about the #PhoneCompanies we have to deal with… We even flipped off #AT&T when we passed their store… That’s her phone company, who is giving her grief about a bill and she has gone through the whole “you didn’t return a device,” which she did, but they keep on billing her… Sound familiar?

IMG_1674IMG_1675

Trudy also told me this great story about how #God has enriched her life… She has gone through a messy divorce and has struggled a good portion of her life, raising two kids, If I remember correctly… But no matter how broke she has been and how hard life has been, when ever she thought she was about destitute, God would step in and money would just come to her from somewhere… She boasted it was always the exact amount she needed…

IMG_1733IMG_1758

I told her about my Mother’s struggles and she went on to say she believes God has a special place for struggling, single Mothers… I like that theory, Trudy… I have a special place for struggling single Mothers also… Such a special place that it brings tears to my eyes to hear of such struggles considering I witnessed it first hand growing up…

IMG_1769IMG_2043

When Trudy was younger she gave one of her children up for adoption because she didn’t feel she could support him at the time and he would have a better life with another family… Well, one day a friend told her someone was trying to get in touch with her through #FaceBook… She said she automatically knew it was her long lost son… A Mother’s instincts are very strong when it comes to her children…

IMG_2077IMG_2084

Well, this man is now apart of her life and is a self proclaimed #atheist just like I was… He is in his mid twenties and believes there is no God out there… Well of course I am very familiar with this type of thinking but then she went on to tell me how he is a #humanitarian and helps people… He has also totally embraced her and her children… I couldn’t help but to expose what I saw about this whole situation…

IMG_2086IMG_2168

I went on to tell her about my bout of #Atheism, which oddly came around the same age as her son… I told her how I soon became #Agnostic due to #Science because with all we don’t know about this huge #Universe, brings about the conclusion for me that you can’t deny there may be some existence of God out there (a very short and simple explanation on a subject I could write about for days.)

IMG_2181IMG_2208

I told her I believe her son actually does believes in God if he likes it or not because he chooses to do good for everyone… He is obviously smart enough to see what he went through, forgive and forget it and go on with his life… Not only is he going on with his life but he has also chosen to enrich others’ lives by helping them… You can’t get much more #Godly than that but I guess that depends on how perceive God…

IMG_2250IMG_2217

Oh no… Here he goes… Folks, we need to stop looking at God like he is some huge, powerful #entity that looks down on us and judges us… That’s not what God is all about… Just because Trudy’s son doesn’t believe in God doesn’t mean he is not essentially worshiping god by choosing to do the good deeds he is doing… Do you really think a force that has given us what we have today is so petty to care about who conscioulsy believes in him or not? Do you really think he picks and chooses who goes to heaven based on how many times you go to church? That is extremely simplistic thinking for such a great being because anything that has the power to know all, would never conduct itself in such a petty human manner…

IMG_2372IMG_2475

The reason I became an atheist is because of this ridiculous thinking and how it effects our world in an extremely negative way due to judgements, control and punishment, if you don’t practice the way a huge mass has chosen to view God… It took me 16 years from my #SelfProclaimedAtheism to learn and understand this… And all of it has just recently come together… not by going to church, not by conventional praying but by going out into God’s world and asking for some answers… I had no idea I was doing this but that’s the beauty of it all because God is not a conscious being and certainly does not exist as an entity that judges and wants people to destroy in his name if others don’t believe… That’s not God! That’s the hell Jesus was talking about! And I truly do believe you cannot connect with him/her by such simple conscious thinking… I believe it is inside of you and the feelings you have are what guide you to that higher power… Your actions and what you choose to do are more godly than any thought could ever be…

IMG_2543IMG_2624

Trust me, I still cringe when I say the word God because that word no longer represents a higher power for me because it has been so misinterpreted by humans for so long… I struggle to even come to terms with the word itself, afraid people will see the word and just rely on their beliefs instead of trying to explore the word’s actual meaning… or lack of meaning…

IMG_2621IMG_2724

Here’s a quick explanation of my interpretation of God… this was not told to me… I had no visions of angels appearing… This is from a man who has had a constant battle with God and uprooted his life to get to the bottom of the subject even though he had no idea he was doing it… Through all the pain, contemplating and denying for the past 16 years I came to this point and I was given an answer… I don’t know how it got into my head and I’m sure I am influenced by things I have heard, read and seen… But my conclusion was not conscious, I know that for a fact… It was not mapped out… I just had some moments out in nature where I felt something inside and around me that felt #celestial… Then I suddenly thought I knew what it’s all about… Simple as that… Everything cleared up in my head in someway I can’t explain… I’m not saying I am a #prophet or a #soothsayer of some sort and I am certainly not saying I know anything on the subject or know everything all of a sudden… I’m just telling you I had cobwebs on the subject and now they seem to have miraculously cleared…

IMG_2849IMG_2870

Look, the problem with our #society and this #world is we put god above us…. That prompts us to put certain people above us due to their so-called connection to God… That then gives them the power to dictate what they say God wants and they dictate it in a way so they can get us to do what they need us to do… this is not God… This is the #Devil Jesus was talking about… The Devil and #Hell are anything that goes against peace, love and serenity… When we die, I have no idea what happens to us and I don’t think Jesus knew either… Jesus was pretty much saying that heaven is what we create on earth just like hell is… I do believe Jesus was the son of God, just like I am the son of God and every energy that exists on this planet is the son of God, be it living or not…

IMG_2894IMG_3120

If we did follow the #TenCommandments then we would have heaven on earth and if you think about it, if everyone followed them faithfully, we wouldn’t have #wars, #killing, #poverty, #greed and so on… Pretty simple concept… Hell, is everything destroying those ten commandments… War is hell, greed creates hell, gluttony will lead you a life into hell… I can go on for hours…

IMG_3170IMG_3187

So, what #ISIS is doing right now is creating a hell on earth because they have interpreted that God wants these laws implemented through violence, taking away people’s rights, taking full control and killing anyone who opposes them… That is hell folks… Where everything that is good and is performed for good is destroyed! A perfect example of this is the destruction of Art which ISIS loves to carry out when they occupy a territory… They are destroying beauty that men have created and creating is the most #Godly thing you can ever do… They are hell! They are perpetrating a form of hell through the guise of God… You can’t get much more #evil than that #folks, if they realize what they are doing or not… We don’t need an imaginary burning hell when such things exist in the world we live in… Right in front of our faces…

IMG_3331IMG_3334

Now, I’m not saying we are any better than the ones who follow ISIS because if we were raised in situations like they have been, we would probably be doing the same thing… By putting ourselves above these folks, we are perpetrating hell also and just feeding into the hell they have created… These are people who are disillusined just like I have been for the past 16 years… They just went to the extreme because their circumstances called for it… If you grew up amongst #death and #destruction since childhood and saw your family killed, friends killed, you would be just as disillusioned… Luckily we live in a society that is more forgiving and doesn’t let such things happen on such a large scale…

IMG_3340IMG_3404

#Christians, you are not much better when you push people out of your #church and #faith because you don’t agree with what they are doing… And when you put yourselves above others because they have a different faith… Jesus always said God’s home is open to everyone… Hence the whole ordeal with #MaryMagedeline washing Jesus’ feet with her tears… everyone judged her yet Jesus welcomed and commended her for opening her heart to God… No matter what she did in the past, he still accepted her… The #ChristianFaith as a whole seems to support the opposite and that’s a form of hell also…

IMG_3408IMG_3415

I will go as far as saying when you put yourself above anyone else without exploring their situation you are perpetrating a form of #evil and hell… Because if you took the time to understand the being and looked into their history and #ideology, you would see it is possible in most cases to change them without stooping to their level by using violence and doing the same evil things they are doing to you… You are just buying into that hell by justifying such actions that are completely #ungodly regardless of how you justify them…

IMG_3505IMG_3566

It doesn’t get more basic than that folks… How this can be misinterpreted is beyond me… It is a reality if you like it or not because people are kicked out of the church all of the time for being #Gay, different or doing something the church considers ungodly… When the church does this, that is the hell Jesus was preaching about! We have the ability as a #HumanRace to create heaven on earth… I know there will always be ones who are evil and want to destroy this heaven but the reason these evil beings prevail is because we help them with our own evil, judgements and self proclaimed godly superiority… We basically create an atmosphere where they can get away with this… then we choose and sometimes have to use the same evil to defeat it… Instead of trying to understand them and trying to help them with their warped version of what God is… We push them away and kill them… Then to top it off, we have created a world that profits off of such killing and the #sacrifices of our own men and women in war…

IMG_3613IMG_3815

That is hell folks! We are living it! Anything that destroys using unnecessary judgements, the pursuit of power over others and the segregation of certain religions or races by putting ourselves above one another is the devil that Jesus was talking about… But somehow we have changed all these great teachings to serve our own pursuit of #wealth, #power and #superiority over others…I’m not trying to say I know the solution to all of this but I can damn well point out the problem and there is no religious organization that exists, that I know of, which is not practicing some sort of evil I just defined earlier…

Trudy I commend your son regardless of what he believes because his actions are Godly and I know in my heart, those actions trump any petty show of conscious belief… I love that we met and had this conversation because it has made me bring this subject to the surface without feeling guilty about looking like I’m trying to be some sort of preacher or what not… I’m not well educated on #religion and I’m not really well educated about anything, for that matter… but when I see something for what it is and when I have tried to challenge it with everything I know but still come to the same conclusion, then I am going to share that conclusion with everyone…

Sorry for the God talk folks but understand I am not talking about God as he/she is viewed in our conventional religious organizations… God to me is everything around us… He/she exists in every molecule, atom and everything that holds us together… That’s why I am so obsessed with the #HiggsBoson… I have a theory that science could actually prove the existence of God… but that’s one of the other projects I am working on… So, we will tackle that issue on a later date, when I’m done writing it down…

IMG_3866IMG_3851

I think if I really put a lot of effort into this theory, it could get published somewhere… One can only hope and just maybe it will shed some light on the subject and help us move on in the world… I know that is a huge expectation from my end and no one has been able to accomplish such a feat but you have to try folks… Because when you stop trying to achieve world peace then you are essentially helping the devil keep this hell on earth… Good Night…
