Make believe stories
Made up stories, make believe, fantasize, day dream or fairy tale?
I used to think all these sayings meant the same thing. To me and almost everybody I knew felt that all these words replied to thinking about something that was not real. To me this kind of activity was useless, and maybe just down right a wrong thing to do, and maybe even un Christ like.
But recently in my studies, prayers and meditations I have found some unique light shed on at least the first four phrases. I have been able to separate them from the last.
I have come to realize that we do the first four phrases all the time, but yet we don’t control them. Or to put in biblical context: we don’t take our thoughts captive. Take captive, that also meant to not make believe, fantasize, make up stories in your head and don’t day dream, heck! that’s what our parents and teachers told us.
So, what about the made up stories that life has put in our head? Are these stories any more real than the stories we wanted to put in our head and think about but were stopped? What about all the restrictions our peers put on us, all the limited thoughts we are told to think about and consider, are they made up stories too? Somebody or some thing made them up.
Why Can’t I choose what I want to think about? Those thoughts are the ones that make me happy. You know I only choose sinful thoughts when I’m told that I can’t have what I really want, whether its me telling myself or someone else. When creativity gets shut down, then sin is crouching at the door.
When John the Baptist and Jesus entered the scene they both started with the same phrase ‘repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand’. Repent is meta neo or change the way you think because a good Kingdom is here.
Change your made up story to a new made up story. Change your restricted story into a liberty filled story (where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty). Start to day dream again, if your wrong Holy Spirit will show you.
I rather be wrong trying to live than playing it safe stagnated by my judgments and fears.
Don’t be the one who buried his masters talent because his made up story said that his master was a hard and austere man. His made up story was first: a lie and second: it produced his believed outcome, He got what he thought he would, but that wasn’t his masters will.
What if we produced every thing we believed down deep inside? You think maybe we do? We need a shift in subconscious thoughts, we need ‘meta neo’ . We need to make up a new story to think about cause the old one has brought us an undesired outcome.
You know the old saying ‘garbage in-garbage out’, or you could say ‘lying seeds in-lying crop produced’ Can you believe it? Your own thoughts and heart produced the things you have in your life. !!Good News-Repent, change your story on the inside, change your life on the outside.
Sometimes I think God gave us too much dominion. I always wished He would just do it all for me. And He will if I plant the right seeds. I don’t think we can plant corn and get butterbeans. We were created in His image you know?, with the ability to produce in the earth. Why do you think satan, the accuser sowed his lying seed into the womb of Adam, the woman, she was not Eve till the man named her after the fall.
So a short summery. Your subconscious mind is very fertile ground, it will produce the crop of the seed that has been sowed therein. So META NEO!!

Usually when we we talk about the creation story concerning the man and woman we say God created Adam and Eve. Learn the story of how and why the woman in the garden of Eden was named Eve.
