Poets of morning sang epiphanies of colors. Muses chirped happily in the sky. I thank God Jehovah Jesus for making me blessed
I have completed the Gospel of John and I have embarked on Acts.
I came across a Blessing verse: ‘Ask in my name according to my will and he will give it to you. Your Joy will be a river overflowing the banks’.
It is said in Bible that the ‘Young Will see visions and the Old will see dreams’. How can we interpret this? The etymology of Vision is to see. The etymology of dream is sensations passing through the mind while asleep. In an interpretation of this: the young are more active and receptive to a dream’s contents. For the Old, a dream suggests a spiritual maturity.
I came across a verse: ‘I am a joy full of answered prayer.’
In the Name of Jesus Christ is an idiom for the proclamation of rebuking something that is disparaging. In the name of Jesus Christ get lost. Demons were expelled by saying the Name of Jesus Christ.
Covenant in the Old Testament was 10 Commandments given to Moses. In the New Testament it became Christ God who will redeem people from their sins. Covenant as an idiom means gifting someone with praise for their character. God is a covenant of Goodness. My wife is a covenant of goodness. God’s covenant for humanity is grace.
Feast of the Pentecost
The Feast of the Pentecost occurred in the New Testament when the Disciples of Christ and devotees gathered in a house. A wind blew into the house and people started speaking in tongues. The Feast of the Pentecost means an extraordinary, wonderful happening. Oh God Jehovah Jesus: let the feast of the Pentecost happen in my life.
What I have Written I have Written
When Jesus was being crucified: the high priests asked Pilate to nail him as INRI (meaning Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews). Later they told Pilate to change it. Then Pilate says: What I have Written I Have written. What I have written I have written as an idiom means being firm on a decision be taken. My loyalty for Christ is what I have Written is what I have written.
Joseph of Arimathea
Joseph of Armathea was a devoted follower of Jesus who asked Pilate to take the body of Jesus and bury it. He anointed Jesus with softest of balms and buried him in a cave. As an Idiom Joseph of Aremathea means, a gentle and kind soul eager to help the poor and the needy. Mother Teresa is a Joseph of Arimathea.
Cast the Net on the Other Side
Jesus after resurrecting appeared to the disciples. They were busy with fishing and to their ill luck caught no fish. Jesus told them to cast their nets on to the other side. And when they did, they got a sumptuous catch. Cast the net on the other side means getting something done in prosperous manner with divine help. Oh Lord Jehovah Jesus cast my nets on to the other side.
We all know that Christ has resurrected. Resurrection as an idiom means well being and prosperity. Oh God Christ: resurrect my life.
Morning woke up with many melodies. The sky was pleasant canopy of music. Nature flew on wings playing the harp. Nature has taught me the meaning of life. I feel so overwhelmed and blessed. I express my gratitude to Jehovah Jesus for blessing me.
Parable of the Vine and Branches
I am still reading the Gospel of John and I came across this beautiful parable. Jesus said I am the true vine and you are the branches. Every branch that does not yield fruit is cut off. It is significant that Christ uses parables that are connected to the earth. How can this Parable be interpreted in a secular and religious sense? The branches that have fruit on them are believers who are faithful and obey the commands of God. The branches bearing no fruit are they who dishonor God and disobey his commands. Being connected to the Vine we can enrich our spiritual life. Looking at the parable from Secular point of view, the branches that bear fruit are those who have goals in life. The branch having no fruit are the ones having no goal in life? As branches connected to the True Vine, we must live a light of purpose.
My pen is a fruit of Joy. Life is easy if you make it simple. Extreme irony reveals a decadent society. The soul that covers the flesh is divine. Melody and Rhythms are the gifts of God. The eyes in the night are twinkling. Beauty—thy creator is a marvel. The Land where the Sun never sets is dead. Ornament the language in elegance and eloquence. Sincerity is the corner stone of character. Leaves falling on the ground gently are an opera of silent music. Beyond the mask of the mirror lies a unique personality. Can God’s love be counted? Lord I have put the wish basket of prayers to you. Time—every second is hope to live in. A rejected love affair is a painful heart. Innocence—you are a little child. Philosophical fiction is a realm of ideas. We must lead a life of innovative catharsis. I have exiled my mind and now I am a Diaspora of becoming in Christ. Anxiety you are not a hard nut to crack. Words have clothes of wishes to put on. Don’t kill your soul with the temptations of the Devil. Your life is precious so VALUEBLELIZE it. A white ball of aspiration lay in the sky. Who gifted conscience in your psyche? Loyalty is the tradition of Character. Melodies flew in the sky early morn. Coming to Christ is beatific and joyful. Life is God’s Gift so treasure it with love, peace, patience and joy.
Persistence paves the way for success. Purpose and values define character. Nobility lies in a beautiful heart. Water and fertilize your dream till it becomes a flowering reality. A way to Good Life is following the one who has said: I am the Way: The truth and the Life. Clouds danced with the ornament of light. Making love is art—a form of poetic epiphany. Kind words and a loving heart, all inclusive of your soul is what you need in life. Forgive and forget the past; live the present with hope and the future with anticipation. God is not to be worshiped in a graven image or anything on land, sea or water. Occult, Tarot and Astrology you are the demons that mock God. Live in the perpetual revolt of creativity. Think before you reply to a Yes. Forgive those who have hurt you. Wonder at the blossomed clouds, the mysticism of the sun rising, the cool breeze that kisses your cheeks, the chirp of birds—yes nature is a banquet for the soul. Be in wondrous rapture every moment of your life. God can remake your life just like Lazarus who was raised from the grave. Lord teach me the art of having faith as small as a mustard seed. What you sow in tears, you will reap in joy. Don’t worry about the future: live in the present with hope. Violence, rage, bitterness, lust and covetousness are the free gifts of the Devil; don’t succumb to it. My pen is a slave for Christ. Lord: help me spread your word through my pen. Victory is lighthouse which you can see ahead at a distance. Good seed is sown to harvest good fruit. Passion is emotion’s sanctuary: enjoy it as a gift of the soul. A Christian celebrates the meaning of life. Life for existential Philosophy was chaotic and absurd. Life for me lies in Valueablization (Value and realization). Every unanswered prayer is God testing your patience. If God can test Job why not you? Surrender your will to God; he will make you celebrate your wishes. Faith in God needs belief: reason obstructs belief. Trinity being one and same and yet being different is a mystery. Culture is a metaphor for the symbolism of the language. The WORD in Christianity is God in one sense, flesh in another sense and Spirit with the presence of meaning. Greed suffocates a decent life. Be thankful for what you have and not what you want to have. Pride is the stumbling block of success. Effort is value created by hard work. Hear God—the soft silent voice which speaks to you. What can the created say to the Created? S\he can say all as praise, worship, praise and glory. You may change your clothes but character is something which cannot be changed. Passion is fidelity of desire. Desire as Lust comes from the Devil.
Morning passed on as serenade of poetry. The sky resembled an abstract painting. Poets chirped and tweeted. All was wonderful and sweet with nature. I thank God Jehovah Jesus for continually blessing me
I was reading into the Novel Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky. The protagonist of the novel is Rascolinikoff and he is in dire poverty. He hatches a plan to murder his landlady and her sister. He plunges a hatchet on their heads and kills them brutally. Though initially confident about the success of the murder, he loses his nerves and becomes demented and confesses his murder. How can we portray the character of the protagonist? He suffers from the Marquis De Sade complex. He is driven extreme love and self hate. He does not have the confidence to overcome the obstacles of his life. What makes this character peculiar is losing all desperation he confesses his guilt. This novel is one of a Quixotic Tragedy. The feeling of love is totally absent in the character. Is the character a resemblance of Dostoevsky’s psyche? Is it the author’s demented narcissism? The protagonist can be considered to be tragic postmodern hero. The confession of guilt is so remarkable of Christian Scruples.
Kathi or Knife in Malayalam is an idiom which means telling fibs. He says Kathi all the time.
Masala (Ingredients for curry mixture)
Masala in Malayalam is ingredients for curry mixture. As an Idiom it means flattering someone. He is putting masala over her.
Morning torpedoed in a celestial array of colors. Wind chimes were singing on tree branches. I thank God Jehovah Jesus for this pleasant Sunday Morning. I thank him for his grace mercy and blessing.
I was reading the Gospel of John and an incident in it deeply touched me. The Pharisees brought before Jesus a woman who committed adultery. They wanted to trick Jesus and said to him: what punishment should we give her. They knew that if he said: stone her that means he is blaspheming and if he said to let her go scot free, he is violating the law. Jesus evaded them and told them: which one you has never sinned: stone her. They went away. Woman who committed adultery as an idiom means being acquitted in a court of law. I have not been a woman who committed adultery. The accused became a woman who committed adultery.
The second incident which I read was the story of Lazarus, Martha and Mary. One day Lazarus fell sick and died. Jesus went to see them after four days. He commanded them to remove the stone of the cave in which he was placed. Then he commanded Lazarus to rise up and walk. Lazarus as an idiom means being divinely healed. A Lazarus occurred to my son when he was very critical. Mary and Martha means being steadfast in belief. My ambition to be a writer is Mary and Martha.
The author has developed a new branch of Philosophy called Value Epistemology. Value epistemology belongs to the realm of Compassionate theology. There are four modes of existence for this Philosophy and they being: Philosophical Etymology, Ontological Valuebleization, Christablization, Dialectical Humanistic Materialism, and the last being psychic compassion.
Cultural Construction or Binary Fusion
What is Philosophical Etymology? It is the art and craft of giving newer meanings to older words. The change of meaning is cultural and Philosophical. It was from Derrida’s deconstructive theology of Binary Divide that I have developed this philosophy. Binary Divide shows how marginalization and privilege occur in texts. For example: White privileged over black, the occident is privileged over the occident. From Binary Divide I have introduced Cultural Construction or Binary Fusion. For Example: Black was once upon a time denigrated and dehumanized. Now Black has become a symbol of pride. Black theology, Black Music, Black Literature, Jazz and Blues all have become universalized as Binary Fusions. Indian English is globalized and hybridized as an accepted norm of being Binary Fusion.
The next thought of Value Epistemology is Ontological Valublelization. Here I am make a detour from Sartre’s and Camus’ existential nihilism. Nihilism states that life is absurd and chaotic. Camus talks of the myth of the Sisyphus where the Gods condemn Sisyphus to roll a boulder uphill only to find that it rolls down and Sisyphus is forced to repeat this meaningless task. Ontological Valueblelization (from Value and Realization) on other hand states that each individual has a value and purpose and such an individual is called as a Purposeist. There are three states of ontological existence and they being Catharsis, Angst and Ecstasy. Even if the individual is facing angst s/he can have positive frame of mind.
ChristAbilization (Christ and Able) is a new term for Globalization. So far globalization has occurred only in the economic sphere. It should spread to other areas like culture and the environment. Christablization includes the absence of war, a dialogic diplomacy, equitable sharing of resources and a compassion to treat the environment with care
Dialectical Materialistic Humanism
Dialectical Materialistic Humanism refers to a dialogical value laden approach to society, culture and economy. Economies should be driven by the gospel of compassion. This philosophy encompasses the Kingdom of God on earth, society based on truth, justice and liberty. The poor should be given a chance to improve themselves. Trade rivalry should be settled amicably.
Psychic Compassion or Mother Teresa Complex
Psychic compassion or Mother Teresa complex involves a harmonious relationship with other, and also the desire to help the needy.
Cultural Construction is the opposite of Derrida’s Deconstruction. Deconstruction reads texts to reveal marginalization and privilege. For example Black is underprivileged and White is privileged. Cultural Construction belongs to the realm of Philosophical Epistemology where a term acquires a new Philosophical and Cultural meaning. For Example: Black which was denigrated once today is privileged. Black Culture, Black Gospel and Jazz and Blues are privileged as universalized elements of culture. Black culture is a catharsis of cultural construction.
