What Is Spirit Saying

Updated on March 7, 2019

Elijah's life experiences educated him beginning with his earliest memory to a voice within himself, he found later, was directing his life.

Going Down Slow - Bobby Bland

Introduction

While questioning myself concerning a relationship I was in and considering marring into two R&B songs on the radio, Bobby Bland’s foregoing Going Down Slow was followed by the following Glades Knight and the Pips’ Midnight Train To Georgia caused my conception. Bobby Bland opens with the words I've had my fun if I don't get well no more I've had my fun, people, if I don't get well no more My heath is fallin' on me Yes, and I'm going down slow [depending on the version] caused me to look at the girls in my life from my first girlfriend to the one I was considering marrying. I saw I had two conceived children and maybe one aborted before my first wife, two by my wife, and one by a Vietnamese and another by another boy’s wife who was in Viet Nam, not counting the non-conceiving girls' it was six children. By the end of Going down slow I recognized that karma or reaping and sowing was at work in my life so I sought to understand it.

Then Glades Knight changed my thinking with L.A. Proved too much for the man, he couldn't make it, so he's leavin' the life he's come to know. He said he's goin' back to find what's left of his world, the world he left behind not so long ago but that wasn’t what I heard. I heard he’s going back to find … ‘someone’ he left behind not so long ago which caused me to look over all the girls of my past for someone among them only to find the three I really desired were discarnated except my previous wife who, I was told by my daughter, had remarried although she wasn’t. That’s when a bodiless voice I call Spirit said, go back to the church and I readily agreed and became spiritually conceived at that moment.

I had left my mother and the church at 19 after she told me, concerning my first girlfriend, Elijah, either she go or you go and I chose to go. That corresponded with the nightmare I first had around age 7 that was repeated every time I would ask within about my life’s purpose. The dream was "me leaving my mother’s Louisiana house taking a short cut to Grambling through the woods. "As soon as I entered them I noticed snakes covering the ground before me and turned back to see them behind and all around me. "I observed them circle around me and wanted to climb a tree but they were there also so I said if I’m going to get out of here I’d better do it now. "I jump up and caught a snake by the head (the beginning of Bobby Bland’s song) using it like Tarzan to swing on and let go in mid air to catch another (Glades Knight’s song) and when I let go I was in front of not our family's church building and went into Grambling to tell others about my experience in the woods." That made the nightmare to be the foretelling of my new conception because my return to the church not the one my family had attended in Fort Worth, Texas. Thus, I was spiritually conceived at 12:45 but I don't remember the month, only that it was between September and October of 1973.

Are We Listening or Obedient?

Written is I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. Can that mean we are not hearing what Spirit is saying in our daily lives?

I now answer that affirmatively.

In the introduction I showed how we can become so occupied with our own thoughts that we can’t hear what is being said. By the same token, we can be so engrossed in what we are forcefully taught by human that we can’t objectively hear nor read what‘s written. That is our main dilemma, a schooled (conditioned to follow instructions to our own demise) mind instead of an educated (objectively observing, participating to see various outcomes and reasoning with them to be able to comm unite our findings to others) one. Usually we are punished and rewarded to enforce our conditioned blindness and deafness that makes objectivity not an option. Prior to my new birth I had been in that state slightly but not completely.

As the fourth of five children I alone received more punishment than the other four combined because when I wanted to know I would do it again even after the punishment. I suppose that had something to do with how as a six month old baby I obeyed a bodiless voice tell me you might as well be content, no one is coming to get you after I had been scream-crying to be removed from a rails up baby-bed for what appeared to have been a long time.

Both religious and worldly songs say things I questioned as a Christian. One religious song, God Is Using Me, has the statement when I suffer all night long giving up the right for wrong God is using me that I could never get my judging mind, re-enforced by the parents and church, to accept. The reason is I didn’t hear the Garden in Eden story’s saying thou shalt not judge because Christianity teaches us we are to judge all things good-evil, right-wrong, godly-sinful and more. That is also why the Christ said so many times He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit sayeth, we are not being taught to hear The Spirit but what human preach and teach us. That is why I presented these two songs, to show they are saying something other than what our conditioned minds usually hear.

Easy Like A Sunday Morning Know

I hear EASY saying

Know it sounds funny But I just can't stand the pain, (of dreaming The American Dream and not finding fulfillment;)

Girl (world), I'm leaving you tomorrow. (I am among those chosen out of this world of selfish greed from doing whatever is necessary to get ahead and will be among the survivors of this civilization’s termination in its last days.)

Seems to me girl (world) you know I've done all I can, you see I begged, stole and I borrowed (to maintain my socially induced status after having done everything I could to get ahead and found no self fulfillment).

Ooh, that's why I'm easy, I'm easy like Sunday morning (I am no longer rushing to meet appointments, deadlines nor other money earning requirements). That's why I'm easy, I'm easy like Sunday morning (I’m now going to be like its Sunday, the western world’s rest days).

Why in the world would anybody put chains on me (All this world offers are a chain, why I must bear them daily with no self satisfaction)? I've paid my dues to make it (I’ve done what was required and it taught me living ecologically is the way and to that end I’m going to live).

Everybody wants me to be what they want me to be I'm not happy when I try to fake it (civilization wants me to be like them, burdening me with stuff that does not please me and faking satisfaction is causing me to live a lie and want to strike out at others because I am not willing to break it.)! No!

Ooh, that's why I'm easy, I'm easy like Sunday morning (I am no longer rushing to meet appointments, deadlines nor other money earning requirements). That's why I'm easy, I'm easy like Sunday morning (I’m now going to be like its Sunday, the western world’s rest days).

I wanna be high, so high, I wanna be free to know The things I do are right, I wanna be free (I want to be in a state of consciousness where I don’t need man made stimulants, I want not to be burdened with judging right and wrong because someone told me there are such thing and don’t require anyone other than my higher self to direct my actions), Just me, babe!

That's why I'm easy I'm easy like Sunday morning That's why I'm easy, I'm easy like Sunday morning Because I'm easy Easy like Sunday morning Because I'm easy, Easy like Sunday morning (That is my reason for having everyday a rest day).


The Thrill Is Gone

The World's Thrills Are Gone

[Verse 1] The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone, The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone away, The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone, baby, The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone away, (my day of redemption is come and you will be sorry during the world's destruction) You know you done me wrong baby And you'll be sorry someday.

[Verse 2] The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone, It's (living materialistically) gone away from me, The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone, baby, The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone away from me, Although I'll still live on But so lonely I'll be (my journey will be alone but not lonely as redemption is obtained).

[Verse 3] The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone, The thrill (of living materialistically) is gone away for good, Oh, the thrill (of living materialistically) is gone, baby, It's (living materialistically) gone away for good. Someday I know I'll be over it all (as I become whole) baby, Just like I know a (reborn) man should.

[Verse 4] I'm free (I am no longer under this world’s spell of since gratification, appearance, attachments and all the other binding traps) now baby
, I'm free from your spell (of since gratification, appearance, attachments and all the other binding traps), I’m free, free, free (I am no longer under this world’s spell of since gratification, appearance, attachments and all the other binding traps) now, Baby I'm free from your spell (of since gratification, appearance, attachments and all the other binding traps), and now that it's over (the emotional attachment to people and stuff), all I can do is wish you well (I am not wishing you hurt because in your time you will arrive on earth and obtain my understanding).

The thrill is gone
It's gone away for good
 The thrill is gone baby 
The thrill is gone away for good. You know you done me wrong baby, And you'll be sorry someday. The thrill is gone, Free from your spell baby, Yes I'm free, ooh I'm free, yes I'm free (or as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said; free at last, free at last, thank god almighty I’m free at last)!!!

Someday We'll Be Together

Man's Wholeness Is Coming

All of the words other than those here are nothing more than declaring the pains and sufferings human and woman endure on their journey to become man.

Long time ago my, my sweet thing, I made a big mistake, honey. I say, I said goodbye (Adam and Eve becoming human or woman because their feminine or masculine attribute remains dormant within each). Oh, Oh baby ever ever, ever, never, never since that day now (one attribute became dormant), Now all I, all I wanna do ah is cry, cry, cry, cry (sorry overwhelms me) Oh hey, hey, hey How I long for you, every night, Just to kiss your sweet, sweet lips, Hold you ever so tight (I long to be the whole I once was) and I wanna say, Someday we'll be together.

This is only the metaphor of the supposed operation on Adam that produced Eve made them both “hewed from” and “woven from man” realized by the phrase “long time ago.” It suggests there is few times when human/woman can find peace and contentment because their feminine or masculine attribute is dormant within both genders. However, we all can content themselves with knowing we will once again we will reintegrate our masculinity into our femininity in some future lifetime. That’s the song’s prophecy.

Do You See What I See

Do You Hear The Conclusion?

Spirit is saying human and woman look without seeing, listen without hearing and reason not with all things of earth because they have minds filled with judgmental additives caused by not developing our feminine or masculine as preplanned since eternity. Because we are not whole our lives are filled with burning (hell’s fire) desires and longings which cannot be quenched until each human (minds unable to comprehend all things) has experienced reincarnating as both genders and all possible orientations, the four primary ethnics and possible combinations, all possible mixtures of the twelve eastern Zodiac signs and possible combinations, the twelve western Zodiac signs' possible combinations as well as all possible combined of each of them all before becoming man (minds able to comprehend all things) with dominion (and exceed the ability of) the earth and all things hereon.

It is saying the people of any walks of life who ascended from earth without discarnating are Ascended Masters, Buddha, Christ and the multitude of titles used to when referring to them. The ascending first requires one to go through a metamorphosis, the flaming sword or new birth to manifest as man. Upon completing the transition the memories of all lives, including every physical manifestation on earth, will be restored to the manifesting life-force, which is how it is obtains dominion power.

In that light, it is saying there is no good, evil nor any of the other multitude of judgmental adjectives human (minds unable to comprehend all things and exceed the ability of earth and everything hereon) use in describing things rather than their nomenclatures. It’s by perpetually using such adjectives that woman maintain their inability to see, hear and reject their spiritual self’s work to open their understanding to the purpose of life. Most all arts forms, sciences, math, history, the earth, its multitude of life-types, the celestial bodies and everything known to man have lessons for understanding life but that comprehension comes not until human and woman have manifested as man. It is also saying karma, or reaping what one sows, is every act one life-force imposes on another form of existence as the producer or receiver their life-force will incarnate as that form and receive or giver the exact act and all emotions associated with it. Although one may have a desperate urge to stop doing it they cannot until either they discarnate or morphs into man. Since we’re at the sunset of this civilization this information will be clearly revealed to those qualify to morph into man and all others will discarnate.

Aloha!

      Dream On, that was my purpose for becoming educated by the nomadic life, I wanted to know truth and the only way one can know the truth is to LIVE IT. The most I can do is share it for others to read is they desire to. To get something I consider would be valuable to others as well as myself and keep it to myself would not th purpose for obtaining it.

      Thank you for your appreciation of it.

      Charmaine, Your past is the building blocks of who you are, if you attempt to build a better you you have to understand your past and it has to be done objectively so you see its overall value.

      Thank you for stopping by.

      Thank you for expressing your beliefs and ideas.

      I can go to the past to reflect and then reflect some more. A little of that is useful but not when I get stuck there. Need to "keep moving"....keep looking foward...

      Thank you, Manatita, for your visit and comment.

      We agree that "Mistakes are the harbingers of tomorrow's Light" but not "they should not be dwelled on." I could never have become who I am without yesterday "building blocks" to produce what I have become, I don't call them mistakes, they were lessons, karma and fulfillers for getting me ready for my destiny. For that reason I continue to incorporate them into who I am at all times. My study of all disciplines using karma say to me that there are no mistakes, they are things we are required to experience in order to become enlightened, whole, saved and any of the other terms used for understanding the purpose of existence.

      I thank you for the understanding concerning the lines, I will remove them and just leave the Italics to show their meanings.

      I hope your Easter was joyous, mine was except the Library closed and didn't put up the notice until after I had left Saturday. By not knowing i would be closed I ate a late breakfast and was unable to use an 'internet cafe' without speeding money so I just spent the day writing at home.

      Peace.

      I see that you are choosing timeless songs, Bro. As long as they can teach us something, then they are awesome.

      Mistakes are the harbingers of tomorrow's Light. I won't dwell on them. Look at the beauty from where you are now, where you wish to go and forget where you have been. The past is dust.

      The numerous lines, for me, are a distraction. Perhaps you can just leave them slanting. I got the 'belt' from my teachers for singing Perry Como at school. Ha ha. Thanks for your Hub today and Happy Easter.
