The flow of my stream of consciousness continued…

  • Adoption: ad – a prefix meaning towards, positive; opt – choice; -ion – a suffix meaning energy
    • Adoption:[literal] the energy of positive choice
    • Adoption as a Son of The Father requires disconnection from World-based family, etc. and connecting with your God-self in order to understand the character, qualities and ways of the Family of The Father (The Kingdom of God).
      • To be spiritually blind is to make negative choices (not using the optics/sight properly)
    • The Father in Heaven already chose us in Him; however, WE must choose adoption in order to become the Sons and Daughters of The Father that He created us to be.  This requires the disconnection from the World as our testament of faith and trust in Him.
  • Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
    • Graven: (adj.) weight, seriousness, importance, given by shaping in the mind.
      • Gravity: force that gives weight/importance to objects
    • Gold, silver and stone represent spiritual characteristics of The Father; also, they are things that are in the Earth that are made into things of value within the World.  Gold, silver and stone are given their importance in the World based on the results of practicing World-based thinking, as well as selfish pursuits; however, the true spiritual characteristic understanding of The Father AND the things of the World come as a result of Seeking FIRST The Kingdom of God rather than seeking things first. (Matthew 6:33)
  • Insect: in – a prefix meaning towards; sect – a body of persons adhering to a particular religious faith [section: a self-contained part of a larger composition (written or musical); a distinct part or subdivision of anything]
    • Spiritually, an insect – specifically, the Butterfly – is a distinct part of The Father
  • Ecydysis – part of the molting process of a caterpillar.  Since the cuticula (outer shell) of these animals often forms an inelastic exoskeleton, it is shed during growth and a new, larger covering is formed.
    • Spiritually, the outer shell formed while in the World does not allow for continual spiritual growth; therefore, the shell must be shed in order to receive the new, larger covering of The Kingdom.
    • Caterpillars form their chrysalis on the underside of a ledge.  The ledge can be termed as the glass ceiling.  Spiritually, this is when a person reaches the point right before they are ready to ascend to the highest level in their given endeavor in life.
  • Butterfly: butt – target for shooting practice, aim, goal, end, target (of an arrow); –er – a suffix meaning one who is
    • Goal: the result or achievement toward which effort is directed; aim; end.
    • Archery: arch – chief, ruler; –ery – a suffix meaning  the collective qualities of
      • Archery :(def.) the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow at a target
      • Archery: [literal] the collective qualities (the practice of hitting the target) of a ruler
        • The World aims its arrows at people, Kingdom Seekers aim at the target of Seeking The Kingdom.  The positive focus of Kingdom Seeking takes attention away from negativity and realigns attention towards all things positive; thereby, rendering negativity inconsequential.
        • The Chinese are credited with the first using fire arrows in a military application
        • Ephesians 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery [arrows] of the wicked.
        • Philippians 3:13 Brothers and sisters, I know that I have not yet reached that goal, but there is one thing I always do. Forgetting the past and straining toward what is ahead…
          • By focusing on the goal ahead, moving forward (with the Shield of Faith on your back), a Kingdom Seeker is not affected by the fiery arrows of those in the World
          • Fiery arrows: negativity/negative focus of those in the World
  • Spiritually, a caterpillar uses the energy of the leafs it ate to fuel its growth as a butterfly.  The leaves supply the ‘information’ to travel the stairway to The Kingdom.  Those who try to use false methods to gain size use steroids.
    • Steroid (stair/stare): oid – meaning like, similar, but not the same
    • Steroid: (def.) natural or artificial drug designed to enhance muscle growth…leads to being sterile.
      • Stare: one object or person is the continual focus of visual interest; visual focus
      • Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
        • Mind: thoughts that are entered through the mind’s eye
        • The World tries to grow by having people in the World stare at it; thereby, requiring steroids that result in a false stairway to success.
  • (A few  quote s from Nietzsche; effective thought for a Kingdom Seeker when dealing with the World)
    • Battle not with monsters lest ye become a monster and when you stare into the Abyss, the abyss stares back into you.
      • Abyss: the bottomless pit of negative possibilities…of the self and others.
      • Keeping your ‘eyes’ on The Father results in only positive possibilities…of the self and others.
    • The historian looks backward.  In the end he also believes backwards.
      • Religion looks to the past (Pastor); Kingdom Seeking moves forward
  • Sterile: ster – false stair; –ile – a suffix meaning having the qualities of
    • Sterile: (def.) not producing or incapable of producing offspring/seed.  Lacking the power to function.
    • Asteroid: a- – a prefix meaning not; steroid
      • Asteroid: [literal] one who uses The Kingdom Stairs or one who stare/focus is aimed at the proper target (Seeking The Kingdom).
  • Nectar (Butterfly food source): nek – ‘death’; tar – ‘overcoming’
    • Nectar: [literal] overcoming death
    • Nectar:  a sugar rich liquid produced by flowers; has a similar etymology to ambrosia, the immortality conferring food of the gods.
      • Spiritually, nectar for a Kingdom Seeker (Man) is The Kingdom of Heaven and is the result of overcoming ‘death’ and receiving Eternal Life.
    • The Fruit of The Tree of Life: the nectar of the fruit of the flowers that exists in The Kingdom of Heaven…the Tree of Life is in the midst of The Garden of Eden.
      • In addition to enjoying the nectar of the flowers in The Garden, Butterflies (Man) also serve to pollenate flowers as well.
      • The nectar of flowers and fruit on trees can be found in a Garden
      • Garden: 1. a plot of land used for the cultivation of flowers, vegetables, herbs, or fruit.  2. Garden grounds laid out with flowers and trees, and ornamental shrubs and used for recreation or display…usually attached to a primary residence.
    • Forest: for – used to indicate the object, aim or purpose of an action or activity; –est – a suffix meaning highest possible.
      • Spiritually, the forest exists in a wild/uncultivated state so that garden flowers are transplanted into the forest, made stronger as a result, and then re-transplanted back into The Garden.
    • The largest Garden Tree is a Mustard Tree: must – have to, be able to; to be obliged or required by morality, law or custom.  To be determined to; have as a fixed resolve…used to indicate logical probability or presumptive certainty.  –ard – a suffix meaning characterized by.
      • Seeking The Kingdom of God is a MUST to receive Eternal Life
  • Mercy has to do with fear because mercy take into account the possibility of punishment, even if the punishment is lifted
  • Grace has to do with Joy/Peace/Agape Love, as no punishment ever factors in
    • 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
  • Primary: prime –  first in excellence, quality or value; –ary – a suffix meaning related to
    • Perfect: 1. lacking nothing essential to the whole; complete of its nature or kind.  2. Being without defect or blemish.
    • Some people maintain that perfect is an absolute term like chief and prime, and therefore, cannot be modified.  Since The Father is Perfect, everything that came from His is perfect; however, in the World we seem imperfect; therefore, we require perfecting.
    • Matthew 6:33 is the primary focus for a Kingdom Seeker, everything else is secondary (negative thoughts/possibilities).  Always focus/refocus on the prime objective.  All other thoughts may seem like possibilities in the Darkness of the World, as all that is known and comprehendible in the World AND includes any type of negativity exists within the Shell of the World.  Therefore, in the World, there is no Perfect Positive.  Nonetheless, all that exists in the World only exists in the mind as part of the support of proclivity building – the building blocks that form the nature of the World.  However, the story written for a Kingdom Seeker is already completed in Perfect Positivity and focus on the primary thought (Matthew 6:33)  is what matters in the Light without Darkness [Positives, no negative…Perfect Positivity/Kingdom of God/Kingdom of Heaven on Earth/Quadrant One on The Map to The Kingdom
  • Kingdom Seeking transforms each seeker into being on Earth and FROM Earth, while all thoughts in the World/Darkness originate in the Heavens; thereby, those in the World/Darkness are on Earth but FROM the Heavens, and as such, have no Dominion over Kingdom Seekers.
  • The Kingdom of Grace, Power of Agape Love, and Glory of Peace are native to Earth as the reflection of Heaven.  Being on Earth and FROM Earth means being in the Garden/Paradise of The Father, which is Earth…with the goal of all individualized aspects of The Father (ELOHIM) to reach the level of being on Earth and FROM Earth by going through the Kingdom Seeking process.  As this begins, the transformation from a World-based caterpillar properience, to a Kingdom of God/Kingdom of Heaven Butterfly properience, takes place.
