Restore 2

Elizabeth Gillies: Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll

Baransu o kaifuku shimasu 

There is desire 
that is good.
It is not only nice. 
It is necessary.

Satisfaction is a need
that does not make greed.
Thirst is one of the first. 
Hunger is next in number.

There have been times
when leadership has been good.
Basic needs were provisional tinder
for happiness as a measure of satisfaction.
Executive authority was used to override
policies that were aimed at the destruction
of economic growth.

Investment in jobs without weapons
was used to cap spending on technology
for destruction. Investment in responsibility
produced exercise in integrity.

We live in a time when leadership
has placed itself above the law.
Greed has been put over power.
Anti-executive authority has been 
used to override anything for any reason
without accountability for harm.
Profit from destruction 
has been made
the absolute.

The official story is propaganda.
It sells the war on terror.
It uses perpetual partisan division
as the selling point for continual warfare.

If Congress can't agree on anything practical,
it agrees to authorize funding for military 
or law enforcement action; as long as it uses
munitions to sell the public on the perceived need
for greed in the deception of perception.

War is not for victory. If war is won
then it's done. There is nothing to feed
the greed with speed.  Violent aggression
makes a profit by making debt 
a consequence for all.

Facts are organized 
around leadership for private gain.
Banks support Oil for Weapons 
because increasing debt
keeps the private banking 
interest in power
over people.

BOW has become the wow and how!
Buy sham pow for bow now! It slices. It dices.
It kills all your mice!


Favor for the objective goodness
of provision for basic needs has become
the commodity to be valued above all others.

Restoration to goodness
will be achieved by faith.

Faith will make tenacity
for love. Love will spring
from the ground like water
at the source of a stream.

will shine down 
from the sky.

Providence will increase its yield.
Goodness wil shine like a shield.
Purpose will go before direction
to make a path for liberty with justice.

Integrity in finding truth will guide
the definition of purpose
towards the practical goal
with ideals that have limits.

Fun will flourish with happiness.

Faith will restore us to the use of power
with integrity.

Elodie Yung as Hathor in "Gods of Egypt

Hathor was the goddess of love and domesticity for Egypt.

"Gods of Egypt"
Horus must find the key to his destiny with the help of Hathor, Bek and others.

Shōkan o kitai shimasu 

Why did you plan a war against society?
You plotted to profit from the death of people
in another religion with the destruction of their property.

You counted on extracting  wealth from your people. 
You used evil for your own good.
Your deception of public perception
did not go without detection.

You used fear to intimidate people
out of questioning your decisions.
Protest didn't reach the press
until more than a decade had passed.

If you had to endure the punishment
you imposed on others, you would have your money
taken from you before you were destroyed 
in a moment of defenselessness.

As it is, you haven't been prosecuted
for a criminal charge. No indictment
has been leveled to institute 
a public investigation 
of your profit from the war
that you had organized.

You did not take refuge in national security.
You used defense as a device for deception.
The destruction of your own construction
was a Trojan horse for the world's public perception.

I am like a fruitful tree in the garden of Eden.
I delight in justice with mercy for equity 
in society.  I will give thanks for the correction
of what was wrong about what you had done.

Redemption awaits those who thirst 
for liberty with equity and justice.

52 Quid gloriaris?

1 You tyrant, why do you boast of wickedness *
against the godly all day long?
2 You plot ruin;
your tongue is like a sharpened razor, *
O worker of deception.
3 You love evil more than good *
and lying more than speaking the truth.
4 You love all words that hurt, *
O you deceitful tongue.
5 Oh, that God would demolish you utterly, *
topple you, and snatch you from your dwelling,
and root you out of the land of the living!
6 The righteous shall see and tremble, *
and they shall laugh at him, saying,
7 "This is the one who did not take God for a refuge, *
but trusted in great wealth
and relied upon wickedness."
8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; *
I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
9 I will give you thanks for what you have done *
and declare the goodness of your Name in the presence
of the godly.

Victoria Justice

Seigi no tame no sutando

The course of the sun is fixed in space
within our system among the stars
in the galaxies.

The planets orbit 
the energy's orb.

Energy guides gravity.
Gravity orders our course
in the universe.

The goodness of order
communicates design.
What of this design 
is mine?

Where do I fit in
with us in this idea
of order within 
the energy of time
in space?

The commandment to love
defines the law. The second
is not just attendant. It is consonant.
It resonates with the first. No one
may murder anyone.
No body may kill
any number of people.

War and the death penalty
have to be outlawed
to prohibit wealth extraction.

Precedents for protection
have to be built on defense,
not the doctrine for destruction.

This goodness is objective.
No one may kill anyone unless
it is in defense against a deadly
and imminent threat.

Providence for basic needs
is a good objective for the nation.

You will organize 
for the production of service
and the construction of projects
for the public. 

The widow, the orphan, 
the disabled 
and the unemployed
are to be allowed a portion
of the domestic product.

Education will be for the public.
No one will dwell in darkness
due to the lack of opportunity
to learn.

The elements for creation 
will be examined for knowledge
about design. Space, energy, matter,
time, causality and chance will be
explored as the open door 
to creation for commerce.

Independence is your image.
Responsibility is your likeness.
You are children of the most high.
You will live with the right to life, 
liberty, justice and happiness.

Principles will be your princes.
Proof of guilt for the charge of crime
in a court for justice with respect
for due process in law 
is the only justification 
for doing time for crime. 

Correction is the objective
for punishment, not the destruction
of those who are  convicted.

Shine your light for the rule of law
you bodies destined for greatness.

You will stand with the council of heaven. 
Your judgment will be used to build
justice in society.

82 Deus stetit

1 God takes his stand in the council of heaven; *
he gives judgment in the midst of the gods:
2 "How long will you judge unjustly, *
and show favor to the wicked?
3 Save the weak and the orphan; *
defend the humble and needy;
4 Rescue the weak and the poor; *
deliver them from the power of the wicked.
5 They do not know, neither do they understand;
they go about in darkness; *
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 Now I say to you, 'You are gods, *
and all of you children of the Most High;
7 Nevertheless, you shall die like mortals, *
and fall like any prince.'"
8 Arise, O God, and rule the earth, *
for you shall take all nations for your own.

Kristin Kreuk Fansite

Fīdo shinsei


Feed sanctity with praise. 
Don't feed the ego
for destruction.

Rejoice in the radiance of light
all you lands. 

Sing for the glory of insight.
Dance with praise for delight.
Creation is awesome!
Your work is wonderful!

The earth revolves for you.
It orbits the sun for you.
We race through space for you.
We look to see the works of creation!

Your benefits extend to all people.
A path was made through the sea,
so passage could be made on foot.
Liberation was celebrated
in the wilderness.

The rule of law watches
the conduct of nations.
Let no one believe 
in the doctrine
for destruction.

Bless civility in conduct you people.
Let praise be heard with respect for rights.

Let our soul be held in life
that our feet may not slip from it.

We have been proven in trials and tribulations.
We have been refined as precious metal is tried.

We had been lured into traps.
We had heavy burdens strapped to our backs.

Enemies had ridden over our heads.
We went through fire and water, 
but we came out in a place of refreshment.

It had begun to look as though slavery 
were more secure, until we arrived
in a land filled with promise.

I will enter your house with offerings of praise.
I will repay the vows that I had offered
during times of trouble.

I will offer sacrifice from abundance.
I will offer a portion from that which 
had been overproduced.

Come and listen, you who would
love to love life.

I called to the Creator
with waves of praise.
Praise for creation 
was my offering.

If murder was in my heart
I would not have been heard.
If I had sought to substitute
a victim for my atonement,
my request would have been rejected.

I was heard in truth. 
When my voice cried out
I was given deliverance for redemption.

Blessed is the answer to prayer.
Great is the Giver of the answer.

66 Jubilate Deo
1 Be joyful in God, all you lands; *
sing the glory of his Name;
sing the glory of his praise.
2 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! *
because of your great strength your enemies
cringe before you.
3 All the earth bows down before you, *
sings to you, sings out your Name."
4 Come now and see the works of God, *
how wonderful he is in his doing toward all people.
5 He turned the sea into dry land,
so that they went through the water on foot, *
and there we rejoiced in him.
6 In his might he rules for ever;
his eyes keep watch over the nations; *
let no rebel rise up against him.
7 Bless our God, you peoples; *
make the voice of his praise to be heard;
8 Who holds our souls in life, *
and will not allow our feet to slip.
9 For you, O God, have proved us; *
you have tried us just as silver is tried.
10 You brought us into the snare; *
you laid heavy burdens upon our backs.
11 You let enemies ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water; *
but you brought us out into a place of refreshment.
12 I will enter your house with burnt-offerings
and will pay you my vows, *
which I promised with my lips
and spoke with my mouth when I was in trouble.
13 I will offer you sacrifices of fat beasts
with the smoke of rams; *
I will give you oxen and goats.
14 Come and listen, all you who fear God, *
and I will tell you what he has done for me.
15 I called out to him with my mouth, *
and his praise was on my tongue.
16 If I had found evil in my heart, *
the Lord would not have heard me;
17 But in truth God has heard me; *
he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
18 Blessed be God, who has not rejected my prayer, *
nor withheld his love from me.

Sophia Myles


My voice will cry out in distress.
I will be heard.

I will seek help when I am in trouble.

My hands will reach up until night.
I will repeat my reach.

I think of peace. I feel restless.

I work for comfort. My spirit faints.

My eyelids won't close.

I am troubled. I dare not speak.

I read about history.

I consider my past.

I commune with my heart at night.

I search my mind. What will it take
to achieve success? Will I be put off
forever? Has nobless oblige
been forgotten?

Is there no promise for me?

Has graciousness been taken 
from grace?
Has anger eliminated compassion?

I say: "My grief is this.

Moral law has been taken 
from government.
It's not civil."

I will remember what has worked 
for people in history.

I will call to mind wonders

from the past.

I will meditate 
for energy. I will 
reflect on the design of power.

Respect for life is holy.

Is anyone more holy than life?

No one has the right to murder.

Even the Giver of the promise 
obeys the law.

The promise is for providence.
Whoever loves knows this experience.

Love has worked wonders.

This power has been shown to the people.

The strength of this power cleanses us

for redemption. We are the children
of resourcefulness. We prepare 
for times of trouble.

The water saw your power

reach down from the sky.
It trembled. It was shaken
to the depths.

The waters waited to touch the whirlwind
as it extended down to earth.

The turbulent waves 

wanted to reach up 
to meet your touch.

When heaven 

reached the sea
a pathway was cleared. 

Rain poured down from the clouds.

Lightning flashed.
Thunder rumbled. The earth shook.
Air was sucked from the atmosphere, 
but a way across the shallow sea was seen.

We were liberated from slavery.
Your footsteps were not visible, but
you led your people to experience
freedom in the exodus 
through the wilderness.

We were drawn through the reeds
to offer the sacrifice of praise.

This is my deliverance.

A path has been made straight
for me with the people.

I will reach out with my voice
whenever it is needed.

77 Voce mea ad Dominum
1 I will cry aloud to God; *
I will cry aloud, and he will hear me.
2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; *
my hands were stretched out by night and did not tire;
I refused to be comforted.
3 I think of God, I am restless, *
I ponder, and my spirit faints.
4 You will not let my eyelids close; *
I am troubled and I cannot speak.
5 I consider the days of old; *
I remember the years long past;
6 I commune with my heart in the night; *
I ponder and search my mind.
7 Will the Lord cast me off for ever? *
will he no more show his favor?
8 Has his loving-kindness come to an end for ever? *
has his promise failed for evermore?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? *
has he, in his anger, withheld his compassion?
10 And I said, "My grief is this: *
the right hand of the Most High has lost its power."
11 I will remember the works of the Lord, *
and call to mind your wonders of old time.
12 I will meditate on all your acts *
and ponder your mighty deeds.
13 Your way, O God, is holy; *
who is so great a god as our God?
14 You are the God who works wonders *
and have declared your power among the peoples.
15 By your strength you have redeemed your people, *
the children of Jacob and Joseph.
16 The waters saw you, O God;
the waters saw you and trembled; *
the very depths were shaken.
17 The clouds poured out water;
the skies thundered; *
your arrows flashed to and fro;
18 The sound of your thunder was in the whirlwind;
your lightnings lit up the world; *
the earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way was in the sea,
and your paths in the great waters, *
yet your footsteps were not seen.
20 You led your people like a flock *
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Elisabeth Shue: Battle of the Sexes

Aisuru kokoro

My heart longs 
for the sensation of serenity
as a deer thirsts for flowing streams
of cool, clean water.

My soul is cast down.

I remember the celebration of youth.
The majesty of mountain looked down
on the vibrant green lushness 
of the tree covered land. The raging peace 
of river was fed by the crystal clear of streams
that flowed down from beneath the peak
that held up the soles of my dirty sneakered feet.

The water ran ajar with the land;
as far as the eye could see. 
God was praised 
by the sun's rays.  
Divinity was seen
as serene
within me.
Worship was 
found outside 
the temple.

Now sea calls to sea;

from finite to finite 
to the climate and infinity.
My heart starts at the rumble
of the thunder drum as the waves
of wind and spirit start the splattering
patter that cleanses the soul
when rain roars to the ground.
The lightning flash of love
commands respect with a dash
from the crash.

The darkness of knowledge

is illumined with the question
revealed through prayer.
Will you help me?

I say to divinity,

"You are my rock; my deliverer;
the Savior in whom I trust. Why 
have you forgotten me? Why 
must I settle for sorrow 
while my work 
is exploited?"

It's as if my adversary

was pouring salt on my wound
to increase the pain. I am taunted
by the question once again,
"Where is your deliverance?"

Why are you cast down, dear soul?

Why have you become unsettled within me?
Put your trust in your deliverance.
Divine being will be praised again
within the sanctuary 
of your temple.

42 Quemadmodum
1 As the deer longs for the water-brooks, *
so longs my soul for you, O God.
2 My soul is athirst for God, athirst for the living God; *
when shall I come to appear before the presence of God?
3 My tears have been my food day and night, *
while all day long they say to me,
"Where now is your God?"
4 I pour out my soul when I think on these things; *
how I went with the multitude and led them into the
house of God,
5 With the voice of praise and thanksgiving, *
among those who keep holy-day.
6 Why are you so full of heaviness, O my soul? *
and why are you so disquieted within me?
7 Put your trust in God; *
for I will yet give thanks to him,
who is the help of my countenance, and my God.
8 My soul is heavy within me; *
therefore I will remember you from the land of Jordan,
and from the peak of Mizar among the heights of Hermon.
9 One deep calls to another in the noise of your cataracts; *
all your rapids and floods have gone over me.
10 The Lord grants his loving-kindness in the daytime; *
in the night season his song is with me,
a prayer to the God of my life.
11 I will say to the God of my strength,
"Why have you forgotten me? *
and why do I go so heavily while the enemy
oppresses me?"
12 While my bones are being broken, *
my enemies mock me to my face;
13 All day long they mock me *
and say to me, "Where now is your God?"
14 Why are you so full of heaviness, O my soul? *
and why are you so disquieted within me?
15 Put your trust in God; *
for I will yet give thanks to him,
who is the help of my countenance, and my God.

The Republic Is

Winona Ryder: Stranger Things

The Republic Is
Within You
Kyōwakoku wa anata no uchi ni arimasu 

Listen to my thought.
Consider my contemplation.

Attend to my cry for help
for I pray to you, my God. 
You are my Guide.

You hear my voice in the morning.
I appeal to you early and watch 
for answers to the lateness
of the day.

You are not someone who takes pleasure in terror.
Evil cannot dwell in you.

You hate the works of destruction;

the acts that kill people and destroy property.

Lies damage communication for organization.
Deceit for division is divisive;
for homicide is bloodthirsty.

Mercy is the greatness for your house.
I will enter your presence with gratitude and awe.

Help me to find that which is right.
Guide me on the path to justice 
despite those who seek to enlist me
to profit from pride and prejudice.

Make the way to truth clear.
Deceit seeks to force my retreat.

The doctrine for destruction 
has become the heart for our policy.
Our statements have become an open grave.

Declare detection of guilt for the guilty. 
Convey direction for the correction
of those who were deceived.

Cast rebellion out as the creator of rebels.
Rebels did not rebel against you.

Let all who take refuge in you be glad.
They will sing of your joy forever.

You will give them shelter 
so your love may be exalted.

You will bless independence with responsibility;
anoint faith in the resurrection of goodness
for justice with truth.

5 Verba mea auribus
1 Give ear to my words, O Lord; *
consider my meditation.
2 Hearken to my cry for help, my King and my God, *
for I make my prayer to you.
3 In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; *
early in the morning I make my appeal and watch for you.
4 For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, *
and evil cannot dwell with you.
5 Braggarts cannot stand in your sight; *
you hate all those who work wickedness.
6 You destroy those who speak lies; *
the bloodthirsty and deceitful, O Lord, you abhor.
7 But as for me, through the greatness of your mercy I will
go into your house; *
I will bow down toward your holy temple in awe of you.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness,
because of those who lie in wait for me; *
make your way straight before me.
9 For there is no truth in their mouth; *
there is destruction in their heart;
10 Their throat is an open grave; *
they flatter with their tongue.
11 Declare them guilty, O God; *
let them fall, because of their schemes.
12 Because of their many transgressions cast them out, *
for they have rebelled against you.
13 But all who take refuge in you will be glad; *
they will sing out their joy for ever.
14 You will shelter them, *
so that those who love your Name may exult in you.
15 For you, O Lord, will bless the righteous; *
you will defend them with your favor as with a shield.
