Seas of freedom

Seas Of Freedom



Wouldn't you think the seas of freedom

should be a heavenly place at sea,

where one could take a piece of bread

to feed humanity ?


Peace Doves

Just happy peace doves flying in tranquility,

then a light blue sky

takes on a darker hue,

as noise of engines interrupt !

A silent moment to change the view.


Guns Pounded

The bird of peace is chased by crows,

as lead from guns is pounded

into those,

who in numbers higher than the months

within a year.


Without Regret Or Fear

They did go without regret or fear,

but love of justice, of which the price is dear!

"... love of justice of which the price is dear" - how very true that is! Thanks for this wonderful poem. The "Cost of Discipleship" of which Bonhoeffer wrote comes through so clearly.

Love and peace

Tony

Based on many of the comments on this page many people are beginning to sense the coming change or as I refer to it the coming Polar Shift.

In my reality the glass is always half full, however I do not suffer from optimism, I embrace it.

The one thing humans can give to another human is love and it is free, it cost nothing. The key is to expect absolutely nothing in return and actually is the whole point.

Our Earth is changing, evolving and if you break that word down you will find that the first four letters are love spelled backwards and of course if you were paying attention in the latin class 'ing' is the state of . . . so in essence we have the definition of the word as the state of love!

So as the Earth evolves by changing it's rotation and altering it's land masses it is in a state of love and those that live on it that mimic this frequency will have a place to live on it and those that don't will not.

God has given us plenty of warning to the coming geographical upheavals and will allow plenty of time for those that accept in faith the rising waters to find safety, but let's get real God helps those that help themselves and we are not talking greed but the exact opposite . . . giving!

thanx for sharing your written words with those of us unable to arrange them so beautifully!

Peace and Hub Forth . . . now is the time to write and share knowledge!

Thanks S ! Thanks a lot ! Ughm ! You don't do to bad yourself. As you like to turn words upside down and inside out my word for God is 'Dog' meaning living life !

not a concept of 'The old ones' (scribes)from way back!!

Your up early?,

My next hub that I'm writing may help to explain a lot . . . the deception is real but cannot stop the cascading effect of awakening, it can only distract and confuse as it is intended. However the deception is two fold and is only to meant to stall the inevitable as those attempting to escape this planet use us to make this happen.

Our sentence is almost up and more will be revealed in due time, so enjoy the ride and embrace this life as the Dog intended!

Yes they are interesting thoughts but they are unoriginal as most of everything I write about are concepts that others have introduced and for what ever reasons these ideas have been suppressed or even censored.

My Hubs are meant to evoke these concepts to ponder and hence to give folks a starting point to research on their own. So far as I know I haven't ever come up with something original and suspect that there is no such thing as imagination that ultimately every concept has an origin, simple because we are not aware of the origin we consider it imagination.

My new contention is that this planet we live on is in fact a prison planet for the spiritual inept or mankind and that sentient life is reincarnated on this planet in human form to work on their spiritual condition.

Of course I could be wrong and have been in the past, but hey if I knew everything life would be pretty boring!

What do you know about flooding in Dublin . . . any insights you would like to share?

Peace!

Hello S,

No idea ! First to tell me ! Thanks ! Have you ever been there ?

It Is arrogant to think we,people here now,immersed in 'online world' and t.v can come up with original stuff !?

Having said that some artist are full of imagination so where do you go from there ?

thanks,

jandee

if you visit my hub pages all of the art is of my own creation, however being an artist I have often wondered where imagination comes from. Often times I will awake with images in my head and be compelled to draw or illustrate them and other times I can just concentrate on a subject and get the image in my head. This site has some of my work and my next hub is going to be a compilation of some of my best for the contest they have going . . . thanx for talking to me, your a cool person!

Yes ! Will do !

If somebody is born and kept in isolation-no contact ? No interaction !

Where will their dreams come from ? will they have any ?

Good luck .

The ether, or God, ooops I mean Dog . . . Our Soul personality is immortal and will guide us through dreams, because we are not connected with it we often have a difficult time interpreting what it is trying to tell us, however if we learned to trust the love in our hearts and our Dog given instincts we can learn how to communicate.

Have you ever tried giving yourself permission to do something that you weren't sure you could do, try and learn to 'see' the results.

But thank you anyway as our thoughts do change our reality.

BTW since I developed faith, I no longer believe that luck exists or coincidence.

Our perspective or way of thinking is what evolves along with the planet, the body is just a vessel.

Yes I have ! I have managed ,quite easily, to get you, to use in a natural way,the term above "our dog given instincts" obviously I am only using the term dog as meaning 'animal' or 'life force'....actually the more it is used the smoother it sounds !

My whole life has been covered with coincidence and luck so I think one has to try harder to take a chunk of luck, and throw a few things that may stall it,into the rubbish bin.Your last sentence I agree(partly) with ! One also has to have self-faith,

Thank you S for your interesting reply,

best from jandee
