Right after these wars finished, there was an enormous quantity of surplus of armed forces apparel and other armed forces merchandise that the government has no use for. Keep entrepreneurs commenced shopping for the surplus from the government to market in their shops.
This providing was quite selective and confined till the Surplus Home Act of 1944. This act from Congress was enacted to provide the disposal of surplus government residence to a condition, a political subdivision of a condition, or a tax-supported firm.
A 3 member board, known as the Surplus Home Board, licensed the act. The board was changed in a year by an agency that was operate by a single administrator. Lots of of the provisions ended up repealed in 1949.
Most militaries are equipped by a quantity of companies which generate everything required for armed forces use, from destroyers to uniforms.

You’re talking on the phone in the morning to your mother and your mother says, “I’m not feeling well today,” but you don’t have to listen to her explain why she thinks she’s not feeling well. She says, “Oh you know I’m not feeling well, but Jesus told me I decided I’m not feeling well.” Then she said to Jesus, “Well, then I’m going to have to change my mind,” and Jesus said, “That’s a very good idea, let’s do it together.” And your mother says, “I’m feeling much better now, because I accepted responsibility for my state of mind, because I accepted that there’s nothing outside of me that can make me sick, and I chose a miracle instead.” Then your mother said, “I think I’m going to do this every day, I’m going to be a miracle worker.” And this example is why everything in the whole world would change if we started to realize there is no cause outside our mind.

Now there is a part in the Manual for Teachers of A Course In Miracles where Jesus says, “Sickness is a decision and you can change your mind at any time.” But, he also says, “What will this decision cost you?” He is actually saying, “What will the decision for healing cost you?” And he says, “It will cost you the whole world you see,” that’s the price of healing, the whole world that you see because the body will no longer seem to be the decision maker and the world of form will no longer be seen as the ’cause.’ When we think of decisions we always think of persons, we’ve given away the decision maker in our mind and we’ve put it on the body. But if you could recognize the decision is always in your mind, no matter what the circumstance, then you could accept the healing. So that’s what it takes to hit the reset button for healing: you have to be willing to be wrong about everything you believe about the world including the belief that people make decisions. Because people are just puppets of the ego, and yes the ego made the puppets and the ego tells the puppets what to do. The ego makes the puppets seem sick, and it’s the ego that makes the puppets die and makes them seem like they can decide, but people do not decide. There’s really only one of us, One Mind, Uno Sola Mente, and that’s the only realization you have to have. That is the prayer, that is the reset button, but it will cost you the whole world, you see.
This is a reflection of the workbook lesson from A Course In Miracles: “When I am healed, I am not healed alone.” Well remember that the mind is very powerful and when you give a very powerful mind a crazy idea, a crazy belief, that’s where you get a crazy world. I was mentioning that new movie, Split, and the main character seemed to make up twenty-three different personalities. The therapist that was working with this patient was helping them to honor and respect all of the personalities, and that’s the first step in healing. You’re looking for wholeness, you’re looking for integration, you’re looking for that experience that says, they are not different from me, because we are the same. The personalities are not the same, but the mind that made up the personalities is the same. The dreamer is the same, it’s only one dream, and so if I take responsibility for my state of mind with the whole dream, then everyone must share in my healing.
All the great religions and spiritualities talk about Love and Oneness, and the error always talks about separation and differences. So when you’re able to realize the power of the mind and to realize that you have not misused this mind, that God never gave you the power to misuse the Light, that you remain as the Light, that means that everything is healed together. That’s when evil becomes impossible, if we are all One Self then there is no evil. This world comes from the belief in a separate self apart from God. So this means that once you see a brother first as a mirror, then you will see this other as an opportunity to forgive in the mind, and then once you actually forgive, there is no other, there’s only Christ. When we talk about this reset button we start to realize that the reset button is that everything is in our mind. So this helps us understand the meaning of Jesus’s words. Jesus is telling us the family of God lives in your mind because everyone lives in your mind. Not the images of who we think they are in the past, but who they are as God created them. So when Jesus said, “Sell all your possessions, leave your family and follow me,” he was really saying, “Let go of the past.” Let go of all your beliefs and ideas of who you think they are, let go of all the concepts of this earthly family because those concepts are still made up by the ego.
One time Jesus was teaching a large group (this is a story from the Urantia Book) and in the back of the crowd Mother Mary showed up and word started to spread, “Your mom is here.” But Jesus continued teaching as if nothing special had happened and he could feel the crowd had started getting distracted a little bit and so he said, “Who is my father, mother, sister, brother? He who does the will of my Father in Heaven is my father, mother, sister, brother.” So he’s asking us to reclaim the power of our mind, of our Divine Mind that lives in the Mind of God and to let go of any past associations that would block us from the light. Because guilt always comes from past associations, only Love comes from the holy instant. If we could be completely present in this moment, we would have no guilt whatsoever. There’s another time in A Course in Miracles where Jesus says, “In no single instant does the body exist at all. It is always remembered or anticipated, whenever we think about the past, we are thinking about the body and whenever we have future goals we are thinking about the body,” but he said, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” A hand is very close, he is inviting us to go deep into our hearts into the stillness, into the Love.
Yesterday I came to the cinema here in Monterrey to watch a Martin Scorsese’s movie “Silence” and it was a very deep movie involving Christianity being carried or taken from Portugal over to Japan. And the leaders in Japan basically resisting, saying, “No thank you, we don’t need Jesus, we have our culture, we have our Buddha and our own way of life for many centuries. The Christian Missionaries had been going to Japan, following what they believed was their mission, to share Christ with everyone in the world. It reminded me a little bit of Superman vs. Batman, since I was watching people getting killed, and fighting, and preaching, and more killing. It was a crazy battle of cultures and theologies, like Jesus vs. Buddha, and it seemed at the end, Buddha won. But when the priest was dying and his body was burning, he had a little cross in his hand. So it showed the folly of theology because the essence of Buddha is Love, and the essence of Jesus is Love, and Love doesn’t fight itself. Not only that but Love does not try to convince anyone that it’s real. So isn’t it great that we don’t have to convince anyone about anything, but we do have to allow the Spirit to convince us that we are Spirit. Think how wonderful this is in all your relationships, you don’t have to convince a husband or a wife, a boyfriend, a girlfriend. You don’t have to convince your children of anything, you don’t have to convince your parents of anything, you learn to let all things be exactly as they are, you’re here to learn complete acceptance.
Imagine how wonderful the world would be if a child is offered Broccoli, the mother has cooked the broccoli and served it to the child and the child says, “No thank you, I don’t like the taste of it.” “Okay, I love you,” says the mother. Not even convincing a child to eat food, what a beautiful world, when you allow your mind to be convinced instead of projecting that convincing onto the puppets. And so, I would say, that this is actually practical.
One time I went to a park and I was playing with a child and the child and I were laughing and we were on the swings, swinging higher and higher. And then the mother of the child appeared and she said, “You looked like you were having a lot of fun with my child,” I said, “Yes, yes, we were having fun on the swings together.” And she said, “Wait until you get your own, then you’ll see if it’s fun.” But that’s the whole thing of ownership, as soon as we think we own something then there’s a responsibility, a heavy responsibility. If you walked out of the hotel into the parking lot, you could find a car in the parking lot and you say, oh well, it’s a car.” But if it’s your car then you’ve got responsibility. You have to think about gasoline and oil, you’ve got to keep the car clean. If somebody takes the car you get upset. It’s the ownership that’s the problem because the ownership is always about the personality self. Christ doesn’t own anything and that’s why Jesus said, “Leave it all behind and follow me.” He was basically just saying, “Leave the ownership and responsibility behind and come into true freedom.”
Love does not possess. And this whole world is based on the belief of possession. For example, if you let your eyes pass around this room, we could say well that is a big lamp, but somebody owns that lamp. That lamp is a possession, or maybe someone rents it from somebody who owns the building and the same applies with people. You say, “Oh I’m her boyfriend, and I’m her daughter and you can go around the room, but everybody is possessed, belongs to something, and that’s what the problem is. If we said, “We’re all children of God,” that would be turning in the right direction. If we perceived everyone as equal, completely equal, that’s moving in the right direction because that’s moving towards Oneness. And so you see to actually follow Jesus requires lots of trust, because all of your doubt thoughts about Jesus will get acted out by the people.
The more I got involved in studying and practicing A Course in Miracles, that stirred up things for everybody in my family. They said, “Okay, it’s a nice book to study, but what are you going to do for a career? How will you make a living?” You see those are the questions and reflections that start to come when you follow Jesus very deeply. And we all know that voice in our mind when we start to practice to meditate or to study a spiritual scripture. There’s this voice in our mind that is the voice of doubt, it feels threatened, and so that voice of doubt needs to be washed away. We have to be convinced that we are not those doubt thoughts, that we are not that fear, and we are not that judge.What you’re describing is common to all human beings, that the human being is always looking out to the world and watching the faces and the behaviors around it and always judging which appearances are loving, and friendly, and helpful, and which are fearful and dangerous. And so in order to undo this filter, we must train our mind to a new way of perceiving and that’s why the very first workbook lesson in A Course in Miracles is, “Nothing I see means anything.” And the second lesson is very important, “I have given everything I see, all the meaning it has for me,” and this is the thing they are discovering in Quantum Physics as well, that we perceive the world based on the meaning we give the world. And we are being shown that nothing happens to us, but everything happens for us because everything is happening in consciousness.
We have simply had a bad ego habit of judging that there are good things and bad things in the world. Love/hate are showing that the mind is split and it’s very unnatural to try to hold onto both of those emotions. And yet we have Jesus within us saying, “Bring them together and one will disappear, perfect Love casts out fear.” Hate must dissolve if you cease to protect it. So how do we protect hate? By seeing it in the world instead of our own mind, by seeing it acted out in externals instead of forgiving it inside where it’s at. And that is the purpose that has called all of us together.
We need only accept complete responsibility for our State of Mind always and without exception, and our happiness is guaranteed.
Our deepest desire is for Union. I join you in a prayer of trust that all things are working together for good. Offer your mind and your function to the Holy Spirit that everything may serve the Highest Good. The subtleties of the ego are exposed simply in this way: The ego’s plan for salvation demands that something should be different than it is. The ego believes that happiness and peace can arise from changing the script. A miracle is a change of mind that happily shows that the script cannot be changed. I join you in this holy prayer: “Let all things be exactly as they are.” This is a Workbook lesson from A Course In Miracles (ACIM).
You are the Light of the world. Shine this Light wherever you may seem to be, for as you allow It to shine through you will experience the Joy of God that knows no emptiness. Inner Joy will attract many witnesses as you Awaken to Divine Love. As devotion is placed in experiencing the Joy within, the seeming outer world will reflect this Joy. The happy dream of non judgment precedes Awakening.
You are entitled to Great Joy! Stay focused on what you want to experience and observe that the chips of the world have fallen where they have fallen. Thank You God for Giving the Joy of creation without end. Thy Will Be Done, and all creation gives thanks.
In heaven there is free will. The only reflection in this world of heaven is the power to choose. What you have the power to choose, moment by moment, is your state of mind. It seems in this world that there are other choices. It seems as if every day is filled with a menu of choices – when to wake up, which dress to wear, where to go, who to call, what to eat. These are all delusions of decisions, for the script of the world is already written. That is why the psychics are able to predict events with much accuracy. All events, encounters and circumstances of the scripts of this world are the past. Moment by moment, you have the power to interpret what you are seeing. You can interpret it with the Holy Spirit – in which case you will have peace and happiness – or you can interpret it with the ego which analyzes and breaks apart and judges. The mind is always upset when it is interpreting events with the ego.
A Course In Miracles (ACIM) helps put you in direct contact with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is always direct, but the fear of healing means the Holy Spirit must work with the willingness of the mind to release the fear. God’s Will is for Perfect Happiness, and every seeming problem and situation dissolves before the remembrance of Christ and God in the Holy Instant. The mind must be trained to unlearn everything it believes about the world and self, including the release of judgment, to make way for the remembrance of the Present. All perceptions of mistreatment and injustice are misinterpretations, and miracles offer glimpses of another Way of looking upon the world. The spiritual journey is a journey inward, and forgiveness is the release of all illusions. Complete forgiveness brings the peace that passes the understanding of the world. With willingness to forgive every thing and every body there is a willingness to release the past. The complete release of past-future thinking brings Present rest and contentment and lasting Happiness.
You can expect to have a very profound experience in the mind because you are welcoming the experience of Inner Truth. All of us have the Spirit’s Voice within us, and so today we pray that that Voice be loud and clear for us. That Voice is always very gentle, very kind, always reminding us that we are perfectly innocent, that we remain loving as God created us and the Voice is there to guide and direct us back to that experience. The Spirit is very simple. I would like to talk about some terms that we are familiar with on this inward journey to happiness.
Many of us who were raised in Christianity or around Christianity were told about this word called sin, and this is a major idea in Christianity. It’s described as if all of mankind, all of the human condition, is based on original sin. But in A Course in Miracles, Jesus defines sin as an error, and we all know that errors can be corrected. This is a term in Christianity called forgiveness, forgiveness is a correction of the original error. Our entire lives on planet earth are really about one thing, and that’s accepting the correction of error. So this is what the Spirit’s Voice wants to tell you, however your life appears to be in form, whatever your circumstances, however your movie looks, whatever roles and duties you’ve taken on, the Spirit says: “Just relax, you have only one responsibility, you have only one duty, and only one role and that is to accept the correction.” You don’t have to make it more difficult than that, you can tell yourself that as many times as you like.
Let’s say you’re going to the grocery store to go shopping for food, and that’s a very specific purpose, but really you are only going there to accept the correction of error. It’s really not about buying the food and this is why people feel stress in their life, they have just forgotten that they only have one responsibility. Now food can seem to be one thing, but children can seem to be another, but again we can see that this transfers to every aspect of human life. We have been told that we must have an education, that we must learn many different skills, that we will take on many different roles and responsibilities and that everyone gets to go through this and that these skills must become more developed and more refined. We are told we must learn about the body and how to take care of the body. We are told that we may have jobs taking care of other bodies, and you can see that there are many expectations about our human life and it’s all coming from a belief system that says, this is just the way it is, you better get with the program. Because if you don’t get with the program you will not be able to function and the chances are you will die. You will die much sooner if you don’t follow the program. Also, our happiness is tied into the program, we’re told we have no hope of happiness unless we follow the program. But there are so many versions of the program, millions and millions of versions, but this is our ego conditioning.
Along comes A Course in Miracles and Jesus is saying, “No actually, I mean this, you have only one responsibility and we could call it forgiveness,” and that’s what it’s been called for many centuries in Christianity. But even in Christianity if you forgive all your sins you still have to grow old and die and if you’ve been good enough you get to go to Heaven after you die and so you have to wait for Heaven. Christianity does not teach that Heaven is now, it teaches that Heaven is in the future, hopefully, if you’re good enough, and if you’re bad, oh well. Heaven is not now and Heaven isn’t even in your future, Heaven is out of the picture completely. So as I find, when people work with A Course in Miracles, they do uncover a lot of guilt and this guilt is usually around this feeling, I’m not enough, I’m not good enough, I haven’t done well enough on earth. Then all these roles that have been taken on, I’m not the best father or son, not the best mother or daughter, not the best sister or employee. We always fall short of these roles and responsibilities and we always hear the word, “You can do better,” but it’s a strange world because better never really comes in a lasting way. We become better and then there’s always more, it just never ends it’s like a cycle. It’s like we’re saying, “Is that good enough?” And the guilt in us is saying, “No, no that is not good enough.”
So this world becomes very, very complicated, and for example if you mess up your phone you can always go back to the default setting. Often times if you call for technical support and they can’t figure out what the problem is they’ll say, “You have to re-set your phone. Go back to the beginning and re-set the whole thing.” And this is what Jesus is telling us to do: reset your life, push the re-set button because these little attempts to make things better are not really working. In fact, I think it gets more depressing when you go down trying to make things better when things never get completely better.
I have a friend of mine named Peter and he grew up in a family that was very Christian and he married a Christian wife, all of his children were Christian. But the world never made much sense to Peter and he had a lot of questions around Christianity, even questions about the Bible. Then at some point in his life, he discovered A Course in Miracles and it began to confirm some of his deeper teachings from the Bible. He started to really connect with Jesus in a very deep way and there were sayings from Jesus that jumped out to him about leaving the world behind. About leaving your family, leaving everything behind and following Christ, and so he was so excited he decided to talk to his wife and family and they said, “That’s not what Jesus is saying, you’re taking all of this way too far, you’re getting way to happy and you’re becoming fanatical about forgiveness.” He said, “I don’t think it’s fanatical, I’m feeling very peaceful and happy,” but he had very strong resistance from his wife and his family because he took it that he really just had one responsibility. He started to be very sincere about that idea, he started to practice with everything and everyone, including his own family and he did come over to spend some years working with me and my community and that wasn’t very well liked by his family. They said, “You are wasting your life.”
Actually, if we really take the teachings very sincerely Jesus will always go before us and give us whatever we seem to need, and will actually take care of us as long as we need to be taken care of. And Jesus is calling us into an experience, a real experience of true happiness. As we go deeper we have to let go of all of our concepts of God, we have been taught that sometimes God favors other things instead of just being pure Love and pure acceptance. We have things called religions and philosophies, different theologies, but in the end we must yield all those things away too. And so you might say we are on a very deep journey together, to practice every day at hitting the re-set button. Wake-up every morning and say, “You’re going to have to show me the way today. My best plans have not solved the error. My best plans have not shown me the correction, maybe it’s hidden but I know I do need help to find it.”
No “person” finds this correction because it is much deeper than our personality self and we need lots of miracles to show us the way. We need to feel that things are showing up in our world, like signs and symbols and good feelings that tell us that we’re going in the right direction. Because even if we have not found the re-set button, we would feel hopeful if we know that we’re moving in the right direction. Now part of our programming is, we’re always making decisions and it’s important to make the right decisions because the right decisions will lead us towards happiness and the wrong decisions will lead us towards pain and guilt and suffering. But we live in the land of many choices and it seems to get more and more complicated with these many choices, we need to be trained how to make the right decisions in our mind and in the end Jesus will tell us there’s only one decision that’s important, to accept your one responsibility and to accept the correction. Out of all the trillions of seeming choices, only one matters, that’s amazing when you look at all the decisions we seem to make as a human being, only one counts and the rest don’t count. You don’t have to answer for them when you get back to Heaven, God is not going to say, “Why did you choose that?” None of them count except the correction, and just to begin to acknowledge this, is a huge thing because this acknowledgment is the beginning of the end of guilt. This acknowledgment is the beginning of true happiness and that’s what we want in our hearts, we want to be truly happy. I am grateful to Jesus and his Course In Miracles for showing us the way!
David Hoffmeister is a living demonstration that peace is possible. His gentle demeanor and articulate, non-compromising expression are a gift to all. He is known for his practical application of the non-dual teachings necessary to experience the Unified Mind. His clarity about the function of forgiveness in spiritual awakening and his radical use of mindful movie-watching in the release of judgment is Enlightening!
Over the past 30 years, David has traveled to 44 countries across 6 continents to extend the message that Truth is available for everyone, now. David’s message speaks to all people, regardless of whether their background is religious, spiritual, or scientific. He is as comfortable delving into the metaphysics of the movie The Matrix, as he is in pointing to the underlying meaning of the scriptures in the Bible.
David Hoffmeister began his journey to spiritual Enlightenment in 1986 when he encountered A Course in Miracles and recognized it as the tool he had been seeking for a radical transformation of his mind and perceptions. In the early years, he studied the Course with passionate intensity, often reading it for eight or more hours a day. Among family members, friends, and teachers, David had always been known for questioning everything. Thus, he was delighted to find in the Course support and encouragement from the voice of Jesus for his careful examination of every idea, belief, concept, and assumption.
It wasn’t long before David began to hear Jesus speaking to him in his mind as a clear stream of thoughts. Jesus became David’s internal teacher, answering his every question and giving him practical guidance regarding the day-to-day management of his life—his work, finances, relationships, etc. Over time it became clear that this guidance could be relied upon for answers to his every practical need.
After two and a half years of studying ACIM alone, David began seeking the company of other ACIM students, attending as many as five groups a week. At these groups, he was startled to find that instead of just speaking to him, Jesus then began speaking through him! Due to the clarity and authority that could be felt, many students in these groups began referring their questions to David.
In 1991, David was guided to make a leap of faith and began traveling around the United States and Canada, sharing his clarity of understanding related to the Course. He followed Jesus’ instructions to “become as a child,” allowing himself to be totally dependent on the Holy Spirit for money, transportation, shelter, food as well as for the words to speak in any given encounter. He was guided to visit countless ACIM gatherings, churches, metaphysical and spiritual groups, as well as a host of persons who knew nothing of the Course. David found that in all encounters, it was his constant joy and peace that was the best teacher of all.
As he had instructed the apostles 2,000 years earlier, Jesus also told David, “Freely you have received; freely give.” Thus David has never charged for his time, teaching, or any of the many materials he gives away, but has been supported entirely by love offerings. Through countless miracles in which he was supported in ways that could never have been anticipated, David learned that he could perfectly trust the Holy Spirit to provide for him and be his constant guide in every situation. Everything that was ever needed to accomplish his purpose as a teacher of God was given without effort or strain.
In 1996, David was guided to purchase a small house in Cincinnati, Ohio, which he named the Peace House and where he welcomed those desiring to step back from the world to discover the Christ within. A community gradually began growing around him, and this community is known today as Living Miracles. With all the global travels that have taken David all around the world, Living Miracles centers have since sprung up in Utah, Spain, Mexico, and Australia. They have supported David in extending his non-compromising teachings through a vast internet ministry of audio and video forums, written publications, inspirational gatherings using music and movies for Awakening, live stream web events, and Enlightenment retreats at the Living Miracles Monastery.
For those who hope that Enlightenment in this lifetime is possible, David is pure inspiration. His gentle demeanor and articulate non-compromising expression touch all who listen. Open your heart, be guided through this website to his clear message of original innocence, and experience the inevitable Awakening to your true Christ-Self.
David’s own journey involved the study of many pathways, culminating in a deeply committed practical application of A Course in Miracles, of which he is a renowned teacher and international speaker. His teachings have been translated into 13 languages, and taken into the hearts and minds of millions through the intimate style of his books, audios, and videos. His number #1 best selling book Quantum Forgiveness: Physics Meet Jesus, catapults the mind into a true and transcendent experience of Peace, now. While his latest book The Mystical Teachings of Jesus offers searing clarity with Bible verses and A Course in Miracles quotes to illuminate the mind!
Centers devoted to his teachings have opened in the USA, Mexico, Europe, Australia and Canada. In 1999, he started the Foundation for the Awakening Mind, a US non-profit 501(C3) educational organization to share the teachings of the Awakening Mind pathway.
I was studying a guide on Rethinking Heritage by the put up-present day Historian Jenkins. The guide brings out Philosophical perspectives on the composing of Heritage that is Historiography.
In the initially component of the guide he faithfully attempts to define what Heritage is and his definition is that Heritage is a discourse. Then proceeds to break down Heritage into an ideology, methodology and epistemology. He laments that Heritage taught in educational facilities does not incorporate put up present day Heritage and its several perspectives.
1st of all I would like to say that the time period Heritage is a misnomer and ought to be a discipline that embodies Histories. The time period Heritage if applied would be symbol-centric and rooted in a Western Historic paradigm. There are numerous Histories circulating currently this sort of as black Heritage, Counter Lifestyle, and Feminist Heritage and so on.
The composing of Heritage can in no way be goal. Facts are interpreted by Historians as ideological sutures. Previous information can be presented in new-light-weight as the Historiography of composing. For case in point there are really minimal reports on the plight of the feminine gender in Nazi Germany. The severe treatment method of Germany right after the defeat of Planet War One particular can be witnessed empathically as a cause for the rise of Nazi fanaticism. A Marxian would take care of Histories as class wrestle. Ideological positions have to be deconstructed. For case in point Marxism as a grand narrative when set into application in Soviet Russia failed bitterly. Queer background deconstructs the ideology of gender and associations to sex. Historic text publications ought to incorporate several narratives. For case in point: a soldier’s diary entry. The narratives manufactured by a Nazi mother are some illustrations. Heritage taught in educational facilities is a single dimensional. The university text publications ought to incorporate several narratives.
When encountering the methodology of a single won’t be able to be typically goal, neutral and scientific. How can we narrate a black mother remaining raped by a white? If she writes a poem about it, is it not a component of a Black lifestyle which is repressed. For case in point if we look at current day Hong Kong we see a constructive impact of it as British Colonization. The British colonizers worked tough with advantage to make Hong Kong now beneath China as affluent country. The poverty of India right after Independence has been even worse than it was through the British regime.
Now what is Heritage as a discourse? A discourse is a narrative, an extended explanation of a thing. In a Historic discourse the past is explored and proof gathered and set into interpretations. For case in point Hitler’s Mein Kamp and Diary of Annie Frank are both equally discourses, a single which encourages the racial pride and superiority of the race and the other the struggles encountered by a girl through the next environment war. The ontology of political consciousness gets a discourse exactly where folks signify Heritage with several details of perspective.
Heritage as an epistemology ought to encompass several narratives into its literary mildew. For case in point I would have to go through Toni Morrison, if I am composing a historiography of Black Women of all ages. Epistemology has to spot its roots in the ontological framework of consciousness. Re-interpreting Heritage ought to have the ontological framework of poetry, a fiction.
How can I become fruitful and how can I live a positively fruitful life?
Now, most people want to be fruitful and productive and appreciated.
Fruit comes by gradual growth. Fruit can be a slow process, but the tree produces what people need. The vine produces what people around us require.
Over these past weeks I have been reading and studying around the topic of the fruit God would us grow in our lives. These articles are based on some beautiful words, in the New Testament, from Galatians Chapter 5 and verses 22 and 23.
Jesus Christ displayed perfectly and fully the fruit of the Spirit – and Jesus says – “Follow Me” – so simple – watch where I go – watch what I do – pay attention to what I say – “Follow Me”. Jesus also displayed most of the gifts of the Spirit because He enjoyed perfect communion with the Father.
Paul is writing here to Christian disciples who did not have an easy time but he writes about how God wants the fruit of the Spirit to permeate our whole character – and give flavour to our lives – love, joy, peace.
How are we to cultivate the fruit? There are many and various answers to that question. II Timothy 2 verses 6 and 7 may help – where Paul speaks about the hardworking farmer. Cultivating the fruit will take time and effort. We need to know God’s Word, and become familiar with it. If we are not familiar with the Word of God, we will go without many of the benefits and blessings which God wishes to provide, and which God wishes us to enjoy.
Derek Prince used to say to people who were coming for ministry and for help and who were wrestling against Jesus and His Word – and he would discern this – “Come back when you are ready to believe the Bible!”
II Timothy 2 verse 15 develops this matter of working at our faith. When it comes to the Word of God, I need to be a good workman. Some things do not happen automatically. There is the sense here of rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck into this Book.
Verse 16 is fairly direct too, and if we do not pay attention to that, the very opposite can be produced.
The first part of the fruit of the Spirit of God is LOVE, but what does that mean? Let’s examine it, because it is very important in the Christian Faith.
We read of it in Galatians Chapter 5 verse 6, and in verse 13 – and then in the next verse Paul uses a word which many people are not all that keen to hear today – COMMAND!
II Corinthians 5 verse 14 – For Christ’s love compels us. A man can be compelled by the love of achieving something – being successful – or giving his life for a cause.
The love of Christ is deeper than the love of any cause.
This is an unconditional love – a love which surges from the heart of God into ours.
Many people are unaware that the cause of Jesus Christ is the greatest cause anyone can be involved in, in the whole world.
It covers and embraces every area of life – and death!
Turn to John Chapter 13 verses 34 and 35 – these too are beautiful words. Nothing can compare with this. But it is a Commandment – and it is NEW.
I used to find that some people did not like Commandments and they did not like anything NEW. So they can have great trouble with what Jesus says.
Jesus gives His disciples a new commandment – it is a command – not a suggestion – and it is not optional – and it is not advice to be taken or ignored depending upon how you are feeling.
All commands and commandments are in force until the orders are changed, and I have no evidence that this order has been changed, nor has it been withdrawn, or modified.
