"Dear God, Please Pop the Lock." — The Power and Simplicity of Specific #Intention as Inspired by Michelle Knight



This past Sunday, I intended to begin a new song composition and also wanted to listen to an audio book, but not before catching up on some reality TV shows via YouTube.  I ended up going down the YouTube rabbit hole watching full episodes of just about every available vid concerning the Amanda Berry / Gina DeJesus / Michelle Knight kidnapping.  Why this type video was suggested for me when I was just trying to find out what was going on in the life of a recording artist is beyond me, but here are some of the many things that inspired me.

Song lyrics that comes to mind for this post:  You gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away, and know when to burst the door down and get the hell out.  (words in red are mine  and all others are from Don Schlitz, writer of the song, “The Gambler”).

#Hidden #Enemies

Opinion

If you follow this blog, you are very likely an intelligent homo sapiens sapiens who may sometimes find it difficult to relate to the ordinary Joe Blow.  These people’s lack of vision, aptitude, independence, character, and honesty may sometimes leave you feeling like a winded alien in a foreign wilderness.  You wonder how anyone can spend time with ‘Joe’ or find value in the things he has to say.  However there is one thing that you must keep in mind. There are more of them than there are of you and they don’t really like you either.

The #Truth about #Love and #Relationships

Please note that most of what I write is based on pagan or non-traditional beliefs.


Some of us have experienced happenings in #life where we may have felt like our breathing had stopped or that our reason for #living was gone. We could not believe that a certain loved one had passed on to the other side or that a co-worker had betrayed us at our place of employment.  We may have been in shock for months when our spouse announced that they wanted a #divorce and left us #brokenhearted and we wondered why things weren’t going the way Hollywood said they would.  I’d like to submit some observations about love that I think outweigh Hollywood’s notions and basically my take on love is that you should definitely love others, but you must also love yourself:

Should We #Worship #Spirits or Should They Worship Us?

One of my purposes for writing books and blogs, is to incite others to hear, to think and to decide for themselves– in that order.  Renee Tarot, Author of “The Mystic” on Amazon. [ad]

Hopefully this Background Info will Provide Context for this Installment

I am fortunate to have experienced quite a few unusual, and sometimes painful, events, which have prompted me to write and to offer anecdotes and informed opinions about a variety of topics.  My very traumatic spiritual past has also caused me to ponder the state of #spirituality in a quest for my own #truth, and as I mentioned above, the purpose of my blogging is really to spark conversations and actions that will help someone else find their own truth.

Here About a Conversation with a Christian from Africa

Originally published 9/1/13

….had an interesting conversation with a christian Nigerian yesterday….

He was talking about how much he loved Jesus and I asked why people in Subsaharan Africa embraced a foreign religion in spite of their intense indigenous spirituality. He quickly corrected me and said Africa has NOT rejected the Orisha. He said they go to Jesus for ‘meager’ things, but when there is something they cannot handle –that is above their heads, they go to the Orisha. Hmmmm.
