Shine

神として輝く

ps25

Hear this teaching from life.
An open heart reduces stress from strife.

This truth from ancient times will be declared.
Your family and you will be spared with care.

That which has been heard and shown
has been revealed to us as known.

The deeds of power known under heaven
will be recounted to act as leaven.

Generations will know your praise.
Your work is shown with the sun's rays.

Violence was the wilderness of former times.
Civilization must construct for production's rise.

You split the waters to let us pass.
The sea was weaned of water and left with grass.

You led us with a cloud by day.
The fire by night let us find our way.

You split a rock in the rugged terrain.
You gave us drink without the rain.

A stream flowed from out of the cliff.
The river gushed without the fish.

We, the people had said,
"This way is harsh.  We will end up dead.

"Will we be killed by this cure?

We just don't know. We can't be sure."

Hear now, you house of conflict,
"You say my way does most restrict?

"Your way was terribly unfair.

You'd take a life without a care.

"When righteousness had left the pious,

iniquity had found his likeness.

"When inequity defined the lawful

the people were left to fend for awful.

"The righteous were left to stay the course

with diminishing returns to build remorse.

"You were judged, you house of disdain.
You have been turned away from causing pain.

"Repent from your transgression.
Confession destroys the affect of oppression.

"Get a new heart and spirit. 

Turn from iniquity. Don't go near it.

"I find no pleasure in the death of righteousness.

Refuse cruelty. Let conscience guide your light to bliss."

Let the people say,
"I lift my soul to you, Y-hw-h.

"Let me avoid humiliation.

Let me make the situation 
the path to salvation
not my condemnation.

"Do not let my enemy

triumph over me.

"I put my trust in you.
You will guide me in what to say or do."

Let none who seek your face be ashamed.
Let the treacherous be trained to refrain from causing pain.

Show me your ways.
Lead me with strength through the length of days.

Lead me in your truth.
Teach me how to calm and sooth.

You are the author of my salvation.
I trust that you will help me build my station.

Remember not the sins of my youth.
Keep me from the serpent's tooth.

A bow has been set in the clouds.
The covenant has been endowed.

The morning star has returned to night.
Creativity is the crescent moon's delight.

Leadership weighs justice with the scales
of experience to use reason to help benefit prevail.
Being washed from sin is not an ordeal.
It is a trial to help you heal.

The good news is like a friend
that shares your promise beyond your end.

You are the Lord of life,
the precious Christ.

You teach the humble to do what's right.
The lowly delight in your insight.

Let the same mind be found as with Jesus.
Claiming equality with God was not a reason
for being, believing or promoting treason. 

He emptied himself of the claim to deity
to leave himself with that which was divine about decency.

He humbled himself with human likeness
that human kind may shine with divine brightness.


25 Ad te, Domine, levavi

1 To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul;
my God, I put my trust in you; *
let me not be humiliated,
nor let my enemies triumph over me.
2 Let none who look to you be put to shame; *
let the treacherous be disappointed in their schemes.
3 Show me your ways, O Lord, *
and teach me your paths.
4 Lead me in your truth and teach me, *
for you are the God of my salvation;
in you have I trusted all the day long.
5 Remember, O Lord, your compassion and love, *
for they are from everlasting.
6 Remember not the sins of my youth and my transgressions; *
remember me according to your love
and for the sake of your goodness, O Lord.
7 Gracious and upright is the Lord; *
therefore he teaches sinners in his way.
8 He guides the humble in doing right *
and teaches his way to the lowly.
9 All the paths of the Lord are love and faithfulness *
to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
10 For your Name's sake, O Lord, *
forgive my sin, for it is great.
11 Who are they who fear the Lord? *
he will teach them the way that they should choose.
12 They shall dwell in prosperity, *
and their offspring shall inherit the land.
13 The Lord is a friend to those who fear him *
and will show them his covenant.
14 My eyes are ever looking to the Lord, *
for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
15 Turn to me and have pity on me, *
for I am left alone and in misery.
16 The sorrows of my heart have increased; *
bring me out of my troubles.
17 Look upon my adversity and misery *
and forgive me all my sin.
18 Look upon my enemies, for they are many, *
and they bear a violent hatred against me.
19 Protect my life and deliver me; *
let me not be put to shame, for I have trusted in you.
20 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, *
for my hope has been in you.
21 Deliver Israel, O God, *
out of all his troubles.

Gen. 9:13
I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

1 Peter 3:21
And baptism, which this prefigured, now saves you—not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for* a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ

Mark 1:14
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God...

17 Feb. Venus returns to the evening sky this month! Today, the planet is about three finger widths above the horizon as the Sun sets and it’s joined by a beautiful and slender crescent Moon.
https://www.space.com/33619-visible-planets-guide.html

Venus – This brightest of planets returns to evening visibility after spending most of the past year in the morning sky.  Most of us won't get to glimpse it before late February however, and even then it will be low in bright twilight... Toward the end of the month, Mercury will be pushing up into view below and to the right of Venus.

Jupiter – shines brilliantly in the middle of the constellation Libra, the Scales.

Don't confuse Saturn with either Mars or Antares both nearly 30° to its west (upper right) in the morning twilight.  The reddish star twinkles much more than either planet.

https://www.space.com/33974-best-night-sky-events.html
In the early evening on February 16, the very young crescent moon will sit only 2 degrees to the upper left of Venus. The pair of objects will appear slightly above the western horizon for a short period after sunset.

Make


Yajima Maimi
Hello Project!

Make
Room

Make room
for the boom!

Open your mind.
Discover design.

The earth has been called
to turn like a ball
to show the sight 
of light
by the axis of rotation
with the gravity of notation
for orbit with flotation 
in space for the evolution of fun
in our revolution around the sun.

The voice of love will not keep silence.
Darkness does not condone violence.

A line is shown at the base of the sky.
Color spreads up as the sign of a sigh.

The corona of brilliance 
is the crown for resilience.

It appears
by turning the sphere.
It rises in sight
to light
the substance of air,

liquid, matter and care
for the sway 
of the way
in the day.

Glory is revealed.
Ugly is healed.
Beauty is sealed
with perfection 
for detection.

Energy burns itself
with the force of the cell.

Each planet is held
by the gravity that compels
the orbit to parallel
the line on a curve 
to the ellipse of circular reserve.

The system of systems
moves away from the point of origin.

Boom!
The sky made room.

The life of light is a raging storm.
Color calls for arrangement as a norm
for that which is held dear
as the atmosphere.

Earth has become the stage
for the next drama of the age.

The atmosphere is set for authority with power.
Courage will come to use reason by the hour.

Beauty will radiate influence with charm.
Subliminal illumination will be continuous without harm.

Goodness is a judgment
that respects limit by the budget
to guide people in action
without creating a new faction.

The design of mind
will find time
for the sublime
in perception 
that avoids deception.

Let the heavens declare delight
in the discovery of cause by insight.

Cause creates change.
Change deigns to reign
within the range
of variation
for mediation
by consultation
for the revelation
of the station
of elation.

The variability of substance
is arranged in matter's abundance
in and outside of us.

The seat of judgment will witness
that liberty within law exists.

Law is not for the destruction of opposition.
It is for the correction of obsession or oppression
by the possession of those who 'exist' for deception.

Those who reject virtue for violence
throw away proportion for the distortion of silence.

They depose fairness for punishment that is cruel
or discard amendment for the sake of severity as the rule
for the gruel of the ghoul.

We are in the company of prophets
who speak about the consequence of profit.

The beasts in the forest
ignore us.

The birds in the trees
sing among the branches or leaves.

The herds on the hills
graze where they will.

All are free to move
to the beat of the groove.

They work for existence
with respect for subsistence.

The design of life
works toward delight
in taking what's right.

The company of prophets is constant.
They dwell in the swell of the economy's content.

Let light shine on the darkness in your heart.
Love is the cause that makes your part start for your art.

Does God eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?
Divinity drinks in the sight of life with delight in the goodness it connotes.

The light of life celebrates goodness with joy.
Salvation sings with the clarity of charity's alloy.


50 Deus deorum

1 The Lord, the God of gods, has spoken; *
he has called the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
2 Out of Zion, perfect in its beauty, *
God reveals himself in glory.
3 Our God will come and will not keep silence; *
before him there is a consuming flame,
and round about him a raging storm.
4 He calls the heavens and the earth from above *
to witness the judgment of his people.
5 "Gather before me my loyal followers, *
those who have made a covenant with me and sealed it with sacrifice."
6 Let the heavens declare the rightness of his cause; *
for God himself is judge.
7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak:
"O Israel, I will bear witness against you; *
for I am God, your God.
8 I do not accuse you because of your sacrifices; *
your offerings are always before me.
9 I will take no bull-calf from your stalls, *
nor he-goats out of your pens;
10 For all the beasts of the forest are mine, *
the herds in their thousands upon the hills.
11 I know every bird in the sky, *
and the creatures of the fields are in my sight.
12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you, *
for the whole world is mine and all that is in it.
13 Do you think I eat the flesh of bulls, *
or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving *
and make good your vows to the Most High.
15 Call upon me in the day of trouble; *
I will deliver you, and you shall honor me."
16 But to the wicked God says: *
"Why do you recite my statutes,
and take my covenant upon your lips;
17 Since you refuse discipline, *
and toss my words behind your back?
18 When you see a thief, you make him your friend, *
and you cast in your lot with adulterers.
19 You have loosed your lips for evil, *
and harnessed your tongue to a lie.
20 You are always speaking evil of your brother *
and slandering your own mother's son.
21 These things you have done, and I kept still, *
and you thought that I am like you."
22 "I have made my accusation; *
I have put my case in order before your eyes.
23 Consider this well, you who forget God, *
lest I rend you and there be none to deliver you.
24 Whoever offers me the sacrifice of thanksgiving honors me; *
but to those who keep in my way will I show the salvation of God."

2 Kings 2:3
The company of prophets* who were in Bethel came out to Elisha, and said to him, ‘Do you know that today the Lord will take your master away from you?’ And he said, ‘Yes, I know; keep silent.’

2 Corinth. 4:6
it is the God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness’, who has shone in our hearts the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Mark 9:4
there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus.

The Presentation


Build
Tranquility
静けさを作る 
Shizukesa o tsukuru 
ps84

This building is a home.
It is my shelter when I don't roam.

My soul longs for security.
Grace adds to the stability of this surety.

My heart aspires to growth.
My mind builds upon what's known.

It is defined as property
with the prospect of prosperity's lottery.

My spirit rejoices with love.
The love ascends as a dove
that rises above.

The sparrow and the swallow make nests.
The sparrow succors with seeds to test.
The swallow feeds insects as best.
Both rejoice with songs of success.

Happy are those who sing with joy.
They live with faith in design as the toy.

Providence bears strength
for sharing love at length.

Those with hearts set on building peace
see the forest as the trees.

Friends and competitors serve design
as sustenance secures what's mine.

Survival results in revival
as desolate places highlight the vital.

The winter sun creeps by the cold thrills.
The stubborn season threatens to stand still.

My life is light. It waits for the death wind.
Dust dances in the sun. Memory haunts the measure of sin.

Even those who go from place to place
win joy in discovery with purpose in grace
with providence as the goal for the race.

The wind blows the chill toward the dead land
while it wicks warmth from the back of my hand.

The land defends rights for those anointed
by the glistening oil of the effort appointed
to achieve success in survival with pain avoided
as salvation will not have been disappointed.

The infant is the unspoken word.
I observed the silence while my heart in wonder stirred.

Now I dismiss that which was absurd
about the stories I had heard.

Many a book my eye had scanned
to seek that design revealed to man.

Many a day had seen the mood
arise to take away the social tune. 

There with the same furrow my fathers had frowned
my tread had sped through night's long hours.

The rude antique portraiture around
had heard the whisper "that must not be known to sound."

The sound of words less earthly than my own had seen
they scarce knew what, but more should have been weaned
for the meaning meant as keen.

The might of the zodiac is fainter than the milky way.
Halfway to the equal light of spring is a cross quarter day. 

A boxer stands In the clearing, a fighter by trade.
He carries the traces of pain that his mind could not erase as saved.
Every glove that laid him down or cut him to his shame.
made him cry out in the anger that had been depraved,
I am leaving this retreating, but the fighter still remains.

One day in your presence
is better than a thousand without menace.

I would rather stand at the threshold of your house
than dwell in enmity with the enemy as my spouse.
The effort to destroy the existence of opposition is a lousy mouse.

I beheld the light of salvation
which has been reserved for the nation.

A rainbow swaddled in an infant's infinite smile of sight 
showed the shield of light that darkness had protected from the night.

Happy are those who find trust
in the goodness of the design that doesn't rust.

Tranquility will be built with joy.
Love is the tool that will be employed.

Heal

Heal
Yourself
あなた自身を癒す 
Anata jishin o iyasu
ps147

Security for the nation state
is secure when it isn't late.

The expansion of alliance 
for trade, travel and science
will reduce the defiance
that opposes guidance
to compliance
with reliance 
on license
for triumph.

Responsibility
will set us free. 

I have been appointed 
to bring good news to those anointed
with the management of labor.
Freedom is ours to savor.

The blind will receive insight.
The redeemed will take delight
in their part in leadership
as the spirit dripped device
for us to sip.

Respect your role in the healing art.
Medicine treats malady after the start.
It works until you find something better
to avoid illness or injury as your debtor.

The pharmacist creates a tricky mixture 
of herbal extracts to work as an elixir
to change the body's texture
until health becomes the fixture.

The physician  provides a service
though it may make you feel nervous
will teach you to refrain 
from that which causes pain.

Diagnosis is a skill
that helps you redirect your will
to find the cause of malady
to deter avoidable tragedy.

Give up your faults as they are found.
Diet, exercise and hygiene are elements to which we're bound.

Adjust that which you are able
around the home and at your table.

The soul is often healed
when the cause of malady has been revealed.

It is good to sing your praise.
Your spirits will be raised.

Your house will be rebuilt with peace.
Return from exile will be achieved.

The broken heart will be unbroken.
The wound will be bound as healing spoken.

The length of night decreases each day.
Equal lengths have not yet found their say.

The light will increase as it's spun.
Earth's axis is starting to tilt toward the sun.

As the Spring Equinox draws near
the orbit will straighten up from here.
The lean won't stray or sharply veer.

Gravity keeps our sphere 
on course for Spring in the year.

The number of the stars are counted.
Their course is set with majesty unbounded.

Hope in the heart of lowliness is lifted.
Pride from the reach of passion is sifted.

The harmony of the spheres is music.
Fluids move in amusement 
inside and out of that which is human.
The heavens are covered with clouds that are fluent.

Rain is prepared for life rooted and unrooted.
The earth will be given that for which it is suited.

Dormant grass on the mountain lays beneath the snow.
Much of the earth awaits the warmth to sow.

Flocks and herds find food where it can be known.
Ravens will feed on anything edible where it is thrown.

The might of a horse is a sight for delight.
Exercise strengthens the human device.

Lift your eyes before the morning light to see
a diagonal that suggests an ascent to lead.

The background for creativity waxes with courage.
Bravery aspires that leadership may flourish.

Become all things to all people for this reason.
You may save some within the season.

The she-goat shines with special favor.
The shepherd is her dutiful savior.

Faith comes by seeing beyond what was seen
when that which was seen was violent or mean.

Pleasure is preserved for those who work with fear.
Favor is shown to those who are dear.

The seven sisters are the daughters of gravity and sailing.
The winds of freedom work to alternate the strategy prevailing.

Demons are purged when correction is urged.
Concept and practice are merged when the detection has surged.

Community that seeks that which is best
earns that reprieve known as rest from the test.

Security is strengthened with the bars on your gates. 
Your children are protected with the element of grace.

Peace has been established with your borders.
Immigration is constrained when by necessity it's ordered.

We have been satisfied with wheat and corn from the earth.
Fiber and nutrients were provided for health that has worth.

Heal yourself from the cause of malady found.
You will see your self as more experienced now. 

147 Laudate Dominum

1 Hallelujah!
How good it is to sing praises to our God! *
how pleasant it is to honor him with praise!
2 The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem; *
he gathers the exiles of Israel.
3 He heals the brokenhearted *
and binds up their wounds.
4 He counts the number of the stars *
and calls them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; *
there is no limit to his wisdom.
6 The Lord lifts up the lowly, *
but casts the wicked to the ground.
7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; *
make music to our God upon the harp.
8 He covers the heavens with clouds *
and prepares rain for the earth;
9 He makes grass to grow upon the mountains *
and green plants to serve mankind.
10 He provides food for flocks and herds *
and for the young ravens when they cry.
11 He is not impressed by the might of a horse; *
he has no pleasure in the strength of a man;
12 But the Lord has pleasure in those who fear him, *
in those who await his gracious favor.
13 Worship the Lord, O Jerusalem; *
praise your God, O Zion;
14 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; *
he has blessed your children within you.
15 He has established peace on your borders; *
he satisfies you with the finest wheat.
16 He sends out his command to the earth, *
and his word runs very swiftly.
17 He gives snow like wool; *
he scatters hoarfrost like ashes.
18 He scatters his hail like bread crumbs; *
who can stand against his cold?
19 He sends forth his word and melts them; *
he blows with his wind, and the waters flow.
20 He declares his word to Jacob, *
his statutes and his judgments to Israel.
21 He has not done so to any other nation; *
to them he has not revealed his judgments.
Hallelujah!

Isa.40:26
Lift up your eyes on high and see:
   Who created these?
He who brings out their host and numbers them,
   calling them all by name;
because he is great in strength,
   mighty in power,
   not one is missing.

1 Corinth 9:22
To the weak I became weak, so that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I might by any means save some.

he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

Each day, sunrise is a minute earlier and sunset a minute or two later. By February 4, we will enjoy an increase of one hour of daylight over the final 3 weeks of December, the darkest time of the year...
Jupiter is the brightest and highest; reddish Mars, the dimmest, is below and to the left of Jupiter; [the waxing crescent moon is between Mars and Saturn] Saturn is furthest left and closest to the horizon. Begin to look about an hour before sunrise. Sunrise on the 22nd is at 7:16; on February 4 at 7:03.

Thursday, February 2
 Right after dark this week, face east and look almost overhead. The bright star there is Capella, the Goat Star. To the right of it, by a couple of finger-widths at arm's length, is a small, narrow triangle of 3rd and 4th magnitude stars known as "the Kids." Although they're not exactly eye-grabbing, they form a never-forgotten asterism with Capella.

 Algol should be at minimum light for about two hours centered on 7:54 p.m. EST.

Friday, February 3
 First-quarter Moon (exact at 11:19 p.m. EST). At sunset the half-lit Moon is high in the south, and after dark it balances on the dim head of Cetus. Spot the stars of Aries to its upper right, and the Pleiades a little farther to its upper left.

Saturday, February 4
 In early evening the Pleiades stand above the Moon, and Aldebaran shines left of the Moon.

Isa. 61:10
he has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
   he has covered me with the robe of righteousness

Gal. 3:23
Now before faith came, we were imprisoned and guarded under the law until faith would be revealed.

John 1:5
light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

Assemble


Kathryn Morris
"Reverie"


Assemble
for
Freedom
自由のために組み立てます
Jiyū no tame ni kumitatemasu
ps111

Hooray for Yah!
You rock the heat of Rah!

I will give thanks for freedom
from the treachery that killed Deacon Stephen.

I will raise my praise 
in the congregation of faith.

The works of providence are great for people!
These are the acts that overcome evil.

They are studied by all who delight in them.
Imagination is guided by the sight of rem.

Assembly has to be democratic, republican and majestic
for fairness to endure as justice in a society for testament.
The greatness of the organization will be remembered
for the graciousness that makes justice temperate. 

Money for food is given out of respect for needs.
This covenant remembers that ability heeds
the functional capacity for deeds.

People have been shown the power of work
for those who build structures that don't hurt.

Organization for the management of resources bound
defines government anywhere in the world that it is found.

Faithfulness with freedom and justice 
are the products of moral law that builds trust for us
in an open society where science is the thrust for trust.

The commandment against murder
is the foundation for morality for the learner.

Truth is built with equity in sound
for those who dwell on this ground.

Redemption was granted to those who saw
that this was the observation for the rule of law.

This administration leads to bravery in time.
Reason loves enlightenment that transcends sight 
and underlies what's right in the sublime climb.
to the conceptually tight.   .

Courage enters the car armed with respect for life.
The eclipse of moonlight doesn't stop action for what is right.

Respect for knowledge is the beginning of wisdom.
Those who act with love understand the thrum of the kid's drum.

The house of praise is built with gratitude
for the sun’s rays as the source for a strong attitude.

Raise praise for Yah!
You made the heat for the hot rock that the people saw.


111 Confitebor tibi

1 Hallelujah!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, *
in the assembly of the upright, in the congregation.

2 Great are the deeds of the Lord! *
they are studied by all who delight in them.

3 His work is full of majesty and splendor, *
and his righteousness endures forever.

4 He makes his marvelous works to be remembered; *
the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.

5 He gives food to those who fear him; *
he is ever mindful of his covenant.

6 He has shown his people the power of his works *
in giving them the lands of the nations.

7 The works of his hands are faithfulness and justice; *
all his commandments are sure.

8 They stand fast for ever and ever, *
because they are done in truth and equity.

9 He sent redemption to his people;
he commanded his covenant forever; *
holy and awesome is his Name.

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; *
those who act accordingly have a good understanding;
his praise endures forever.

This is what you requested of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said: ‘If I hear the voice of the Lord my God any more, or ever again see this great fire, I will die.’

Then the Lord replied to me:...'Anyone who does not heed the words that the prophet shall speak in my name, I myself will hold accountable. But any prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, or who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded the prophet to speak—that prophet shall die.’

========================

Life in the wilderness is harsh, but nomads learn to live by avoiding death.

The Deuteronomist wrote history for the cult of Yhwh. He used the 'J' source to write. The J source was derived from the desert experience. It is supported by the movement to reduce the number of gods that people were expected to know to be regarded as pious. It sought to reduce the number of stories about immoral behavior.

The Elohim source was drawn from the experience of civilization. People had built shelters. Wandering from location to location had been reduced. Agriculture was developed. Farmers acquired a place in food production for society. It was proposed that there was a God of gods who directed the order for society. These sources pointed to monotheism from different perspectives.

The J source reminds us that there was a time when life was lived without settlement. The E source points to a time when law for society will be just for all. Justice is the guiding force for law. Murder is the greatest offense against the law with respect for the right to life.

Plato wrote 'the Timaeus' and 'the Republic' when Athenian society was in transition to the Spartan ascendancy. Democracy was defined as dictatorship. Dictatorship was defined as the province of the philosopher king. The destructiveness of the elements was the force that was to be used to keep people from rebellion.

This was a time when the Greeks saw the Persians as a threat to their culture. Athenian democracy was played down to favor a warrior culture that could defeat the Persian threat. Consensus of opinion for cultural development with education was made subordinate to winning war.

The kingdom of Judah had become a province of Persia. They celebrated the preservation of religious custom. They were a kingdom in a united kingdom. Insurrection from Greek sources was a threat to their security.

The Greeks assimilated Persian practices after Alexander's conquest. The Romans assimilated Greek and Persian practices after they had established their empire. The cruelty and violence of war became a support for severity in punishment and austerity in economics for society in general.

Wars of aggression are the greatest offense to peace. Peace is natural. War is not. Stories that claim that the other nation started a war when they didn't are the worst case of fake news.

Fake news that promotes war is not for justice. It is not protected as free speech by the first amendment of the US Constitution. This right protects a person from punishment for protesting political policy.

Freedom of assembly is also protected. People can meet to determine a consensus for communication. Those who pay for fake news and also pay to punish those who protest it, offend liberty with justice in our society.

War cannot be the rule of law for society. Defense is. A standing military and law enforcement are necessary to protect life. Violent aggression is the threat to our civility. The destructiveness of the elements is an enemy which requires the pooling of resources to combat. 

Death is the end of personal life for whoever it was that died. It is a reminder that the prediction of the end of time for society has a value in preparing for the end of life to a person's body.

The loss of life represents the end of the species symbolically and emotionally. Each loss then presents a reminder to value life while it is being lived. There is the sense that if life is lost while living it to the best of your ability, the life was worth living. It was lived well. It was a good life.

Live well then. Don't support murder or genocide. The support diminishes the quality of life for society.

Be


Linda Blair
Clinical Psychologist
Help Yourself


Be
Responsible
責任を負う 
Sekininwoou
ps.119

Invisibility
cannot be seen.


Light is for sight.
Less at night increases fright.

Sound is a seashell mound 
to walk around.

Smell is a ship’s bell.
It’s hard to tell
from where it swelled.

Taste saves face
 for the bouillabaisse.

Touch is a friction clutch
for your double dutch.

Feel too much?
Shift your stuff
to find your rush.

Hello. Is anybody there?
I feel so transparent on the stairs.

Whatever begins to exist has a cause.
The universe began to exist after a pause.
The bang began like a heartfelt law
that draws that which is from that which was drawn.

The experience of existence forms an idea of being.
Being exists as more than the idea of seeing.
The experience of existence exists for dreaming
about more than the idea and the streaming deemed.

Nothing greater than the greatest idea of life
can be conceived to be greater in mind. 
If majesty exists beyond strife, 
it also exists in reality as ripe.  
Nobility exists in reality 
as well as in the mind as seen.

Greatness is not defined by causing destruction or damage with cruelty or violence. 
It is not defined by deception or the accumulation of capital irrespective of the law to silence.  
It is better to oppose war and the death penalty, than to believe in the 'right' to destroy people and property to try this 
as though there were divine approval for the blitz. 

Opposition cannot be destroyed by killing people. 
Opposition to killing is reinforced to feed the will. 
Is war to be preferred to peace? 
Is any religion to be defined by an 'anti-Islamic' crease?
No.
It just won't go. 

How are statutes an expression of law?
General authority lies between the specific draw
and absolute simplicity without flaw

My conception
will guide perception 
to value objective perspective 
in the midst of subjective reflection.

How is law related to morality?
The goal of responsible totality
prevents the perpetuation of harm to anyone's substantiality

My judgment will reject the condemnation
of people who accept celebration
and reject deception for the destruction of character by allegation 
to keep that responsibility which is my transparent gem.

Each person has liberty in responsibility.
All people have the entitlement to be free
with protection against exploitation's decree.
Everyone is responsible for respect to be seen.

How is morality defined by rights?
It is not defined by money's blight. 
It is not limited to the special interest 
of increasing advantage for unfinished business
for the rich in accumulating capital to increase their assets. 
It is not subordinate to the authority of access
to declare war to protect invasion, occupation 
and genocide as ‘defense.’

Rights are for people by design 
and as the functional product defined
by taxation for government that is benign. 
Goodness obtains objective standing
by the design of the natural handling 
of providence for basic entanglement
with needs being met.

Morality is for goodness sent
as an expression of balance lent
as rights for people wrent.

Government may not dictate
law by war for the profit of few or many in the state.

How do rights direct executive authority?
Executive authority may not claim absolute power for any degree of the majority.
No one is above the law. Not even all are above it with seniority.
The law is for each and all. The executive corrects error even by consensual deformity.

Executive authority overrides Congressional or Judicial abnormality 
for the rights of people in moral congeniality.

No one is above the law. 
Not even all are above that which is beyond flaw.
The law is for each and all from what was drawn.


Ps.119:25-48
He Legem pone

33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes, *
and I shall keep it to the end.

34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep your law; *
I shall keep it with all my heart.

35 Make me go in the path of your commandments, *
for that is my desire.

36 Incline my heart to your decrees *
and not to unjust gain.

37 Turn my eyes from watching what is worthless; *
give me life in your ways.

38 Fulfill your promise to your servant, *
which you make to those who fear you.

39 Turn away the reproach which I dread, *
because your judgments are good.

40 Behold, I long for your commandments; *
in your righteousness preserve my life.
Waw Et veniat super me

41 Let your loving-kindness come to me, O Lord, *
and your salvation, according to your promise.

42 Then shall I have a word for those who taunt me, *
because I trust in your words.

43 Do not take the word of truth out of my mouth, *
for my hope is in your judgments.
44 I shall continue to keep your law; *
I shall keep it for ever and ever.

45 I will walk at liberty, *
because I study your commandments.

46 I will tell of your decrees before kings *
and will not be ashamed.

47 I delight in your commandments, *
which I have always loved.

48 I will lift up my hands to your commandments, *
and I will meditate on your statutes.


4 Cum invocarem

1 Answer me when I call, O God, defender of my cause; *
you set me free when I am hard-pressed;
have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

2 "You mortals, how long will you dishonor my glory; *
how long will you worship dumb idols
and run after false gods?"

3 Know that the Lord does wonders for the faithful; *
when I call upon the Lord, he will hear me.

4 Tremble, then, and do not sin; *
speak to your heart in silence upon your bed.

5 Offer the appointed sacrifices *
and put your trust in the Lord.

6 Many are saying, "Oh, that we might see better times!" *
Lift up the light of your countenance upon us, O Lord.

7 You have put gladness in my heart, *
more than when grain and wine and oil increase.

8 I lie down in peace; at once I fall asleep; *
for only you, Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Reward

Reward
Patience
報酬の忍耐
Hōshū no nintai 
ps62

My soul waits in silence for my salvation.
My heart beats strong with palpitation.

Deliverance has been the rock for my expectation.
Redemption is the cause for revelation.

When grace was arrested
survival by the savior was attested.

The leader considered his duty
to his youth and the beauty.

The horse bound archer spilled milk across the sky.
The black hole held the center of the galaxy mortified.

The large dog laid below the hunter and the twins.
The fighter and the rider were ready for trouble to begin.

The impulsive father considered his daughter a threat.
The swan was a reminder of when the parents of the twins had met.

The driver drove through the center with a major splash.
The hero stood by ready to dash.

How long will you seek to crush me
as though you were a toppling wall to be?

You sought only to take me down from my place of honor seen.
If I had listened to your lies I would have long since a goner been.

They cursed with their hearts.
Their blessings showed their lips dart apart.

When they turned from what they had done to harm
grace was adjusted to repair prior hurt with charm.

My soul waits alone in silence for my savior.
I will as I wait for the best in my own behavior.

My stronghold will not be shaken.
My faith is not mistaken.

Safety is the fortress for my honor.
Refuge is protection wherever I wander.

Put trust in your faith you people. 
Act only in a way that you can will as legal.

The current fad is but a fleeting breath.
Experience holds for what is best in breadth.

The end of time is always in view.
Existence needs a reality that is true.

The scales of light work even at night.
They work together to make things right.

Extortion is the distortion of the contorted.
Robbery is empty pride reported. 

When wealth is increased at the expense of worth
mirth seems to leave the earth.

Energy belongs to power.
The word is heard when the shower flowers.

Redemption belongs to those who learn this.
Value goes to those who earn it.
This bliss can't miss.

Reward patience with recognition.
Due diligence will be your decision.



62 Nonne Deo?

1 For God alone my soul in silence waits; *
from him comes my salvation.

2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, *
my stronghold, so that I shall not be greatly shaken.

3 How long will you assail me to crush me,
all of you together, *
as if you were a leaning fence, a toppling wall?

4 They seek only to bring me down from my place of honor; *
lies are their chief delight.

5 They bless with their lips, *
but in their hearts they curse.

6 For God alone my soul in silence waits; *
truly, my hope is in him.

7 He alone is my rock and my salvation, *
my stronghold, so that I shall not be shaken.

8 In God is my safety and my honor; *
God is my strong rock and my refuge.

9 Put your trust in him always, O people, *
pour out your hearts before him, for God is our refuge.
10 Those of high degree are but a fleeting breath, *
even those of low estate cannot be trusted.

11 On the scales they are lighter than a breath, *
all of them together.

12 Put no trust in extortion;
in robbery take no empty pride; *
though wealth increase, set not your heart upon it.

13 God has spoken once, twice have I heard it, *
that power belongs to God.

14 Steadfast love is yours, O Lord, *
for you repay everyone according to his deeds.


Jonah 3:10
When what they (the people of Nineveh/Handsome) did was seen, how they turned from their evil ways, God changed his mind about the calamity that he had said he would bring upon them; and he did not do it.

1 Corinth. 7:29
…the appointed time has grown short; from now on, let even those who have wives be as though they had none…

Mark 1:14
Now after John (divine grace) was arrested, Jesus (divine savior) came to Galilee (wheel, revolution), proclaiming the good news* of God,* 15and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near;* repent, and believe in the good news.’

On Friday, January 19 between 4:43 and 4:55 a.m. EST, the shadows of both Europa and Ganymede will be visible at the same time for observers in the Americas. (Single shadows will be visible on Jupiter from 2:45 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. EST that morning.)

Is your sky dark enough for you to see the winter Milky Way? After dinnertime now, it runs vertically up and across the zenith: from Canis Major low in the southeast, up between Orion and Gemini, through Auriga and Perseus almost straight overhead, and down through Cassiopeia, Cepheus and Cygnus to the northwest horizon.

Early in the dawn of Sunday the 21st, spot the waning crescent Moon hanging in the southeastern sky. Some 12° below it (for North America) is Antares. Look 15° to the left or lower left of Antares for Saturn. The same distance lower left of Saturn is Mercury.
Auriga- the driver (charioteer)

Antares- the heart of the scorpion
Canis Major - the large dog
Cassiopeia- the daughter of promise
Cepheus- the father (ape or rock)
Cygnus- the swan (impregnated Leda, mother of the twins)
Europa- the beauty
Ganymede- the blond young man
Gemini- the twins, the fighter and the rider
Jupiter- the leader
Mercury- the thinker
Orion- the hunter
Perseus- the hero
Saturn- the grandfather
