Continued stream of consciousness…

  • Major(n.): or – a suffix meaning condition, activity; maj – a root word meaning greater that others in importance or rank…great in scope or effect…great in number, size or extent
    • Majest(y): est – a suffix meaning highest/greatest among others; adding the suffix –y to a noun turns it into an adjective.
    • Majesty is the highest/greatest rank among that/those which/who is/are major

 

  • Parrot: Par – same as; rot – organic decomposition; decay…to become damaged, weakened, or useless because of decay.
    • A parrot is a colorful bird that is capable of imitating human words.  Many parrots can learn to use phrases in context…they can also be trained to imitate any word.
    • Spiritually, a parrot is a person in the World who appears to be colorful/flashy and either sound like The Kingdom but does not understand what is being said.  Such a person is only able mimic.  Therefore, the spiritual parrot, and what is being repeated is ultimately useless because of the decay/lack of understanding attached to the words.
    • Parakeet: a bird very similar to a Parrot; the literal meaning of the word parakeet is little priest.
      • Again, such a bird is called a little priest due to its ability to repeat words, yet possess no understanding behind what is being repeated; hence, no power.

 

  • Jack: an assistive tool that allows a normally unliftable heavy object to be lifted up with relative ease; thereby, allowing for maintenance and repair in vehicles, such as car.  In recreational vehicles, jacks are used to provide balance and stability for those inside once the vehicle has ceased traveling.

 

  • The Glory of the World is measured in status and praise for what is achieved while in the World

 

  • Glory: that which is natural to a thing
  • The Glory of The Father/The Kingdom is Peace.  The Father receives Praise for what HE has/is doing for us in our lives.  HE wrote our lives in His Book of Life BEFORE we were born; therefore, thinking we accomplished anything does not take into account that we are the result of The Father’s Will.  As a result, Kingdom Seekers/Sons of The Father give Thanks and Praise for what The Father allows in our lives.
    • Isaiah 26:12 Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.

 

 

  • Hagfish: an ancient, ocean bottom dwelling sea fish.  The only living creature that has a skull but not a vertebral column.  They are a scavenger fish, similar to a vulture, which feed upon and often even enter and eviscerate the bodies of dead and dying/injured sea creatures much larger than themselves.  They are known to devour their prey from the inside.

 

  • Laboratory: labor – to work, usually under a burden/hardship; ory – a suffix meaning a place for/serves for.  A laboratory is a room or building equipped for scientific experimentation or research.  An academic period devoted to work or study in such a place.

 

  • A World-based place that generally reflects the learning purposes and activities that take place in Kingdom-based purgatory; however, in Kingdom-based purgatory, there is no burden.
    • Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
    • Spiritually: knowledge of The Father; Physically: not heavy
    • Luke 6:40 The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.
      • The student is not above the teacher; however, it depends on who is the teacher. Teachings are initially passed along via World-based teachers (Parent, spouse, elders, etc.); however, when a Kingdom Seeker becomes a student of The Kingdom of God, non-Kingdom Seeking teachers and situations serve as learning material and information that is transformed into Kingdom-based understandings.  Therefore, the Kingdom Seeker rises ABOVE World-based teachers, now serving as the Master for them, while the fully trained Kingdom Seeker then becomes as (Par) the teacher.
        • Luke 17:21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
  • Parents, spouses, friends, elders, etc., may be resistant to Kingdom teachings if they view themselves as being a teacher who assisted the Kingdom Seeker in becoming successful at navigating the World.  This is their attempt to maintain the perceived dominant position.

 

  • Homophony (music): a texture in which two or more parts move together in harmony; the relationship between them creating chords.
  • Homophone (words): a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning; are often used to create puns and to deceive the reader (as in crossword puzzles), or to suggest multiple meanings. 

 

  • Apocalypse: apo – a prefix meaning away from; calypso – a Sea goddess

 

 

  • Romans 14:2-3 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them.
    • Vegetables, like a moth, grows in darkness (spiritually, a non-Kingdom Seeker); whereas, fruit, like a butterfly, grows in the light (spiritually, a Kingdom Seeker).  Such spiritual growth is based on how the ‘fertilizer’ of life is perceived by the person.
    • A Kingdom Seeker gains an understanding of why the fertilizer moments were needed and gets closer to The Father as a result; whereas, the non-Kingdom Seeker becomes a blamer of others and doesn’t gain the proper understanding of life’s moments.
    • John 15:1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.”
      • A basic study of the growth and maintenance of a garden reveals that the most effective and efficient way to cause garden flowers/plants to grow is through the use of fertilizer. 
      • In an effort to get the grass in my yard to grow stronger, greener and thicker, I did some research regarding natural fertilizers and found out that compost manure provides the most growth nutrients for a developing yard.  In learning about the instructions on how to apply the compost manure, I received a great revelation about how The Father ‘fertilizes’ His Children.
      • I spread the physical compost manure over my yard using a yarn mop (similar to that which is used to spread barbeque sauce over meats) because using such a tool ensured even coverage of the yard.  I used a technique I learned from watching Navy personnel while I was in the Air Force.  The technique is similar to Swabbing the Poop Deck on a ship.
        • Poop deck: the elevated roof to the cabin of the captain of the ship…ideal for both navigation and observation of the crew and sails
        • Poop cabin: used as an officer’s mess hall during meals, as well as a storage area for maps, journals and official logs
  • Swabbing the deck was done aboard non-naval ships to wash up blood, guts and the smell of fish (spiritually, this means to cleanse the impact/effect of the thought processes of the Heavens).  Swabbing the deck with seawater keeps the wood on the deck swollen and pressed tight against each other; thereby, preventing waves from drenching the rooms below deck
    • There is quite a lot of spiritual meaning here; however, I will continue to share the flow of what I received, and come back to this point to share my insight about it after the end of the course.
    • Physically speaking, by ‘swabbing the deck’ of my lawn with a yarn mop covered in wet compost manure, the result became stronger root development; thereby, preventing weeds…just as on a ship, swabbing the deck cause the wood to swell and prevented water from damaging the lower levels
  • Phosphorous is what causes strong root development in grass and trees, as well as the flowering fruit and leaves of flowers, plants and trees.  Red or purple leaves are signs of phosphorous deficiency; nonetheless, phosphorous can be found in composted fruit, bone meal (crushed and grounded up animal bones) and rock phosphate (dissolved vertebrae, bones and teeth)

 

  • Parasite: ite – a suffix meaning state/quality; as – to the same degree; par – same as
    • Parasite (literal meaning): the state/quality of being the same as the same degree
    • Parasite: 1. an organism that grows, feeds, and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host.  2. One who habitually take advantage of the generosity of others without making any useful return.
      • Interestingly, the given definition (World-based) is in stark contrast to the literal meaning given when the word is broken down.  In The Kingdom, such a word does not have a negative connotation, since being the quality of being the same as the same degree is in reference to the 135th degree, and the 135th degree is Perfection.  Therefore, plan of The Father is to have many Sons/Daughters, so being a 135th degree Parasite is a pure positive in The Kingdom.  However, because from a World-based view, it can’t be understood how The Kingdom is beneficial as the ‘organism’ that grows, feeds and is sheltered by the World; nonetheless, it is that very growth, feeding and sheltering that allows the World to gain access to The Kingdom. (Parable of Yeast)
      • Furthermore, with The Father being completely self-sufficient, it is the World that actually is feeding and growing based on what The Father allows; thereby, serving its purpose as the training ground for Kingdom Seeking.  This in turn gives Kingdom Seekers the chance to gain the Wisdom of the World, while learning the Knowledge of The Father and become The Kingdom meaning of parasite.

 

  • World-based racism is an inverted reflection of how The Kingdom views non-Kingdom Seekers.  Where a World-based Slave Master doesn’t respect the thoughts/ideas of slaves, yet does have respect for other Masters, in The Kingdom, non-Kingdom Seekers are loved simply because they are another individualized (yet immature) aspect of The Father.  In The Kingdom, the ways and beliefs of non-Kingdom Seekers aren’t listened to because such ways and beliefs are still connected to World-based family/friends/institutional thinking.  Where Slave Masters may have viewed their slaves as less than a person, who didn’t deserve to be treated lovingly, (and in doing so, did not [don’t know how to] provide their slave with information that allows them to become a Master as well) in The Kingdom, non-Kingdom Seekers are allowed to mature in their own way and are fully embraced as a Brother and/or Sister in The Kingdom when they embrace Kingdom Seeking (the shared information that allows each to become a Master themselves).

 

  • The ecological environment, also known as a habitat, of the World is no longer applicable to a Son of The Father, as He has ascended from the World and are now in the environment of the Family of The Father; however, as ‘Yeast’, a Son of The Father impacts the World by causing the World to begin being reshaped into The Kingdom of Heaven.

 

 

 

  • Garden of Eden: Gard – protection; –en – a suffix meaning to cause to become [Garden (literal meaning) to cause to become protected; Garden: defined as an enclosure, a plot of fertile land used for the Cultivation of flowers, vegetables, herbs, or fruit.  Grounds laid out with flowers, trees, and ornamental shrubs and used for recreation or display

 

  • ed – to eat [as in ed/ible: ible – a suffix meaning worth, ability]; –en – a suffix meaning to cause to become;  Eden (literal meaning): to cause to eat

 

  • Garden of Eden (literal meaning): Caused to become protected to eat…the Protection of Eating

 

  • Spiritual Ecology: Not with the thoughts of the World (log – fallen tree).  The Ways of The Father alone, with no input from the World.  The Heavens/the World exists in a, and is an ecosystem, similar to the ecological system of physical animals, birds, fish, plants and trees.  The Kingdom is a FAMILY system (The Body of Christ)
    • Habitat: the area or environment where an organism or ecological community normally lives or occurs

 

  • Lawn maintenance: water, good soil, fertilizer (compost manure); seeds, if necessary
  • Root: the usually underground (or background) portion of a plant and serves as support.  The root draws minerals and water from the surrounding soil, and sometimes stores food for energy.
    • Spiritually, Kingdom Seekers are connected to the Roots of The Tree of Life and receive their support through The Knowledge of The Father, Grace and Peace, all resulting from practicing Agape Love.  Kingdom Seekers are nourished due to the certainty and stability of this connection.
    • Those (non-Kingdom Seekers) who receive their information/support from World-based family/friends/institutions, etc., are connected to the roots of The Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil.  Being formally connected with The Tree of Life, but now artificially attached to a different source, those connected to this Tree are affected by the uncertainty and instability of their support system.  Non-Kingdom Seeker are also affected as well by whatever ‘positive’ results that happen, as the result of ‘feeding’ off of the energy of those that root for them(those who cheer them on).

 

  • Amen: am – to be, to remain; -en – a suffix meaning to cause to be
    • Amen: to cause to be, to be and remain
    • Romans 4:17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
    • Asen: as – same/similar, par; -en
      • ASen: to cause to become the same as, par
      • Adam: ad – a prefix meaning towards, positive; am – to be
        • Adam: towards/positive being
        • Amun: am – to be; un – not, opposite
          • Amun: the opposite of being/not being
            • Amun-Ra was the name of an Egyptian god/pharaoh…with Ra meaning leader
            • *See also TutankhAMUN/AMEN/ATON
              • Tut: Image, living image of
              • Ankh: living, life
              • Tutankhamun: The opposite of being the living image of life
