The flow of my stream of consciousness continued…

SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION

  • Finance: the science of the management of money; the study of how investors allocate their assets over time under conditions of certainty and uncertainty (Pressure).
    • Fin/ance: fin – the end; a winglike/paddle-like appendage extending from the body of a FISH, used for movement (propelling, steering, balance) in the water…a fish’s fin is used to affect speed and direction, attributes of a Master; –ance – a suffix meaning the state or quality of
    • Finance [literal]: the state or quality of the end; the state or quality of using the movements of World based understandings (FISH) to affect movements through the World.
      **Note: spiritually, FISH reflect understandings/thought processes on how to become successful in the World; whereas BIRDS, who eat FISH, spiritually reflect the USE of such thought processes to actually become successful in the World.

The level of finances a person in the World has is the result of — and dictates the mobility of — a given spiritual understanding (FISH) among other spiritual understandings in the World. Money, as the currency that has been given value in the World is the physical medium used to satisfy the various BIRDS (bills) that manage the World, based on their given level of understanding.

  • Bill: appendage that BIRDS use to eat.
  • Money: mon – oneness; Money is the oneness that binds the World together (Relationships are also used to bind people to the World as well)

To MAN, money has a purpose, but no value/not the same value as viewed by the World; therefore, money is NO OBJECT.

  • Value: merit, worth, importance
    • Merit: superior quality or worth, deserving praise
    • Worth: quality that makes something desirable/useful; important enough to justify
    • Importance: strongly affecting the course of events/the nature of things
      • Important: import- to bring or carry in from an outside source; -ant: a suffix meaning an agent
      • Important: something/someone that is an agent who/that is bringing or carrying someone/something from an outside source
      • Export: to send abroad; no longer in port
    • Disregard: to pay no attention to; to ignore
    • Object: a focus of attention, feeling, thought, or action. The thing, person or matter to which thought is directed or action is directed.

Money is no object, nor has the same value or level of importance to Man because the focus of Man is on The Father’s Grace, manifested in/through Charity (The Father’s Will/Agape Love). Also known as Eternal Life.  This focus occurs as the result of being in the World and undergoing the transformation process of Seeking First The Kingdom. This becomes the Oneness that binds those within The Kingdom of Heaven.

Focus on Eternal Life renders the attempted pressure of Life ineffective as The Father’s Charity fulfills every and all needs and wants.  Therefore, The Father in Heaven feeds the BIRDS (Matthew 6:26); eliminating the pressure of BILLS and FINANCE.

  • Bills: External Pressure – Money (finances): Internal Stress – financial responsibilities

Money can’t buy the only thing of TRUE VALUE: THE KINGDOM (Reconnecting back to The Father with both YODS)

The story of Physical Evolution attempts to tell the Spiritual story of being in the World and the resulting loss of the FIN, due to Kingdom Seeking, that ends with now walking upright on LAND [Going from the spirit of FISH (World) TO The Spirit of MAN (The Father)]. Similar to the decompression changes from deep-sea diving/butterfly coming out of the cocoon.

MAN has no Budget…because MAN does not budge

  • Budget: budge– to move slightly; to change one’s opinion or stated position; –et – a suffix meaning little one
    • Budget: an internal plan of action (adjustments) based on an (external) estimate regarding the FUTURE; how resources/Finances are planned to be used in relation to possible future events in an attempt to ensure efficient use and/or hold on to resources to protect against possible future events (FIGURING).

Man does not budge because of standing firm on solid ground.

  • Psalm 26:12 My feet stand on level ground; in the great congregation I will praise the LORD.
  • Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
  • Deuteronomy 15:6 For the Lord thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.
  • Deuteronomy 26:19 And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the Lord thy God, as he hath spoken.
  • Deuteronomy 28:13 And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

Transition from being ruled by the World (FISH/BIRD) to being ruled by Peace (The Glory of The Kingdom)

  • MAN trades…exports to the World what was imported during the Kingdom Seeking process.
    • Trade: to set forth a new path
      • Man exports the only thing of TRUE VALUE to the World; lends to, but doesn’t borrow from the World…rules over, but not ruled by the World (Deut. 15:6)

External Factors: the primary focus required for the environment, by when focused on properly, affects all other secondary factors…beyond personal control.

Internal Factors: Personal control over how focus is directed.

  • Kingdom: External Factor – The Father’s Grace [Charity]/Peace towards His Children…results in Eternal Life.
  • Kingdom: Internal Factor – Personal Peace, achieved by focusing on the plan of The Father; Grace, by forgiving self/others.
    • To achieve, read Isaiah 26:12; Psalm 139:16; Colossians 3:13
    • World: External Factor – Success in the World (at-large)…making it in Life.
    • World: Internal Factor – Balancing focus between various internal distractions
      • External factors in the World are factors within factors, to reach the overall factor; i.e.: high school -> college -> career.

Don’t sweat the small stuff…it’s ALL small stuff…don’t worry, be Joyful…Count it ALL Joy. These thoughts are part of developing and maintaining positive focus.

  • Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
  • Matthew 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
  • Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

The World, with is various levels (similar to the depth levels of the SEA), has a continuous source of pressure and stress.

  • Pressure: external force placed upon an object.
  • Stress: internal response of resistance in relation to pressure.

The Kingdom has a continuous level of The Father’s Grace and Peace.

We are BORN into Life [the World]; we are RE-BORN into Eternal Life [The Kingdom]. The transition from Life to Eternal Life (Human to Man) is one from non-uprightness to uprightness.

  • Upright: erect/vertical in posture; righteous, honest
    • Psalm 15:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
    • Psalm 7:10 My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
    • Psalm 20:8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
    • Psalm 32:11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
    • Psalm 37:18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

Humans, being born with an ANIMAL spirit, are not upright.

  • Trade: to tread a path
    • Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
      • Faith is the currency used in the Adonai/Kingdom Seeker trade…Peace is the result.

According to research done by Skip Moen, Genesis 2:7 indicates that TWO YODS were used in the Creation of Man; whereas ONE YOD was used for Humans. However, the second Yod (Likeness) was not initially active, and thus made latent.

  • 1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

The latent Yod is like an accidental in music. A sharp is an accidental in music that takes a musical note higher in pitch. Therefore, the TWO YODS takes a note/song and takes it to a higher level.

Kingdom Seeking activates the latent Likeness Yod by the use of Faith. The inner Adonai receives our export of Faith and the Kingdom Seeker imports the understanding/information exported by Adonai, information needed in order to be able to active BOTH YODS; thereby, gaining entry into The Kingdom of Heaven and re-birth into Eternal Life. Man then exports what was imported by Adonai to humans while only importing from the World that which contributes to the growth of The Kingdom and disregarding ALL things that do not. Humans export their good things to The Kingdom that was initially imported to them by The Father for the good of The Kingdom.
