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.
April 16, 2019
Morning was peaceful—the sky danced with an opera of colors—tinsel flew romantically in the sky—everything has the presence of God and indeed I am feeling richly blessed.
I am still reading the Gospel of Luke and I came across this strange parable. A man had three helpers to look after his finances. To the First one he gave 10000 Bucks and to second he gave 5000 Bucks and to the third he gave 1000 Bucks. Then he went off on long voyage. Coming back he asked them what he did with the money. The first one replied that he invested the money and doubled it 20000 Bucks. The second replied that he doubled it to 10000. The third replied that he hid it under the earth. What is the meaning of this parable? The parable contains a spiritual and economic meaning. Spiritually it exhorts be active to the calling of God’s voice and also have the responsibility to spread God’s Word and proselytize people to Christianity. Then materialistic meaning is we should be good stewards of money.
Figures of Speech
A poem flowered in the sky. Bards perched on the tree singing. The soul is a bouquet of emotion. May the granary of money fill my purse. Faith as a mustard can make it happen. The poetry on the bed is erotic. The sky poured in Streams of Consciousness. Manna is a miracle from Heaven. Sky thundered angrily. Passion is bodies making love. Literature is the painting of words. Love is a precious gift of God. Communism is a failed God. The abyss of emotion is angst. Time is a silent runner. Use language to clothe words in art. Life is the poetry of processing meaning. Palestine is a hot volcano. Life is a song of lyrical beauty. Politics is the drama of the chaotic. The pen frees your feeling and the pen becomes a traumatic cleanser. May the seed of the purse be filled with the fruit of money. Yes God died but resurrected on the third day. Literature is the ornament of poetry. What he is wearing is a peacock’s feather. The cares of this world should not worry you. Christ came for the sick sinner and not the physician. Wear the clothes of righteousness. Wear the shoes of luck. Wear a hat of positive thinking. Music you are poetry of the bed. Love is the most beautiful emotion and shines like a star, bequeathed by God. I have been freed from the chains of sin. Nirvana—you are potboiler of fiction. When he gets angry—he roars like thunder. Liberty is the gift of God. Dreams are a soul of reality. Luck—you blossomed flower—yield to my wishes. Send worry to the pits of hell. Hell is the fang of poison. Words are useful when they manifest into a reality. God said: I will give the nations as present and the continents as a gift. Attitude is a mantra for success. If poetry is the wife of literature, the husband of literature is prose. The first generation of Christians were Jews: the second generation were gentiles: the third generation: are messianic Jews. Adultery you are a fruit of poison. Solidarity is a pillar of strength for a democracy. Your dreams have been made to make you successful. Sin is an enemy a foe of God. The earth is mortal the heavens immortal. We have to be a Moses and Abraham obeying and being led by God’s Word. After winter comes Sunny days. Fear not says Jehovah Jesus: ‘I am with you’. Grass clothed the earth like Solomon’s garments. Money is needed for an affluent economic ritual. Beauty I have found you in the heart of God. Reason is the mind and passion the soul. Wings of luck soar to the clouds.
The morning crescendoed into a beautiful song. Fairies of sky danced in the pulchritude of delight. The sky rose with a lot of passion. Bright and sunny I love the day. I thank God Jehovah Jesus for all the blessings he has given to me.
I was reading the Gospel of Luke and I have thought it is memorable.
What is the Kingdom of God? On earth it means social justice and equality and with respect to heaven it means eternal life with the savior.
Parable of the Unjust Judge
Jesus told this parable. There was a widow who asked an unjust judge to give her a verdict of Justice. For a long time, he ignored her pleas. But the widow kept on pleading. And finally the judge yielded her requests. What does this parable mean? If we a have wish, we should be persistent in prayer. As an Idiom unjust Judge means a prayer answered. Lord Jehovah Jesus be the Unjust Judge when I am praying.
Lazarus and the Rich Man
Once there was a rich man and a poor man called Lazarus. Lazarus used to sit outside the Rich man’s house and beg for food. When they died: Lazarus was taken to heaven and the rich man was taken to hell. Lazarus was in the presence of Abraham. The rich man pleaded to God, at least give me a drop of water to quench my thirst and also tell my brothers on earth. But God replied for your brothers you have the scripture and Prophet Moses. Lazarus as an idiom means emerging comfortably and victorially after a period of misfortune and stagnation.
The Prodigal Son
The Prodigal Son is a famous parable in the Bible. Once a wealthy man had two sons. The younger one asked the father for his share and the father yielded and the son lived in profligacy. When the money was all over he had to beg for food. The younger son went back to the father and said: ‘please let be at least be your servant’. The father welcomed him with open arms and cooked a fattened heifer for him. Yes, many a time, I have been a prodigal son. I have a loving father who overlooks my faults and I worship and adore him.
The banquet also is a very famous Biblical Parable. Once a wealthy man held a banquet and called out guests. The guests said they were busy and had no time to come. The master than asked his servants to call the sinners, the poor the down trodden. The master gave them a sumptuous feast. The Banquet as an Idiom means blessings given God. I am so happy that God has given me a banquet. God, make all my days a banquet.
Zacchaeus was a collector. When he heard that Jesus was coming, he being short climbed on the Sycamore Tree. And when Jesus walked by, Jesus said: ‘Zacchaeus come down; I am coming to your house for tea’. Zacchaeus repented and said he will give all the surplus of money that has collected to the poor. As an Idiom Zacchaeus is an idiom means, doing someone a good term. We should practice being a Zacchaeus in our life. Mother Teresa was a Zacchaeus for the homeless and the poor.
I was reading the Gospel of Mark and I got some inspiring thoughts which I want to share with you.
Parable of the Vineyard
Parable of the Vineyard is a famous parable told by Jesus. A man plants crops in a vineyard and appoints farmhands and goes on a holiday. After coming back, he sends a servant to collect the fruit. The farmhands beat him and then the master sends a second servant and they flog him. Then he sends a third servant and they murder him. Then the master thought if I send my son they will be kind to him. So the master sends his son. They dastardly kill the son. Jesus asked them what the master will do. They replied that they will be executed. This parable is an allegory of Jesus himself. God sent the prophets and the evangelists before him (like John the Baptist). They were treated cruelly and some were murdered and became martyrs of God’s Kingdom. The planter of the Vineyard who sent his son is an allegory of how Jesus will be crucified and martyred.
When Jesus was questioned by the Pharisees about paying taxes: Jesus asked them to show a coin. Then Jesus asked them whose image was on it. They replied that it was the image of Caesar. That’s when Christ replied to them: ‘pay unto Caesar what is his and give unto me what is mine’. There’s a verse of hope inherent in what Christ has said. There’s a guarantee that if we take care of our spiritual life then our Father God in Heaven will take care of our material needs.
The Pharisees who were clever as serpents asked Jesus a question. There was a family of seven brothers. When each of the brothers died each of the living took into marriage the same wife. They by sheer sophistry asked who will the wife belong to in heaven. Jesus adeptly replied: ‘you brood of vipers: in heaven she will belong to God and she like all those who have been saved will their intimacies and ecstasies with God.
This parable is found in the Gospel of Luke where a poor widow approaches a Judge for Justice. He ignores her completely but finally he accedes to her persistence. As an idiom it means something coming true in one’s life after long prayer and strongly wishing. Oh God when will the parable of the Unjust Judge happen in my life. If the parable of the unjust judge happens in my life I will be very happy.
Night sky—ornaments twinkled in glory—crickets gossiped on earth—a dark carpet hugged the earth—nightlife was in full bloom—the night is passionate song—a heavenly music
Morn rose as a song—tiny angels floated in the sky as melodious music—the sun rose as a majestic canvas—the smell of nature is like that of a baby—the sky became a scattering of colors—orange, purple, pink and grey—nature spoke in the art of streams of consciousness—beauty is a of nature—an ethereal gift of God—a present given by God to appreciate the gift of nature.
As it is said in the gospel of Mathew: if you say to the mountain to be cast into the sea it will do so. Teach me oh Lord to make my words to be things happening in life. Mountain be cast into the sea as an idiom means having strong will get things accomplished in life. Brother cast the mountain into the sea. Lord Jesus: what I yes in on earth: Yes it in heaven for me.
When Jesus went into the temple: it was populated with traders. Jesus became angry and kicked the table and drove the folk out. The Temple is an idiom for getting angry with things that are ethically not right. Jews became a temple. The person became a temple with his wife who committed adultery.
Today after a long time I went to church. The Lord has made the seventh day a Sabbath to glorify him. Sabbath as an idiom means worshiping God. Hey brother, let’s do the Sabbath today.
Parable of the Frog
Once upon a time, there was a frog that lived on earth and water. When the water dried: he lived on land. Soon the monsoon brought in the water. He adapted to living on water. This parable exemplifies that while living on earth we must lead a meaningful Christian life and we should have devotion to God We must balance our life on earth with that in Heaven. The water drying up is the coming of difficulties. God is there for us to tide over every storm. The coming back of water is God blessing us with victory and fortune.
I don’t feel discourage as I have God Christ in my life. Christ is my light, life, refuge and fortress.
Daniel in the Old Testament was exiled into Babylon and there the King Nebuchadnezzar ordered him to worship idols. Daniel flatly refused and said he will worship God Jehovah only. Daniel as an idiom means to have loyalty. We must be a Daniel with God.
Don’t equate the body with flesh: equate the body with the spirit in heaven. God is the master architect of the Universe. Pretense is the Devil wearing a deception. The singing of the metaphors woke me up. Life is poetry in form and prose in content
I have said earlier: give the soul, a time of experience to generate the content of fiction. I discovered these three genres of fiction by the inspiration of the divine God Christ. I name them as follows: Painting-Novel, Narrative-Novel and Philosophical Novel.
Painting-Novel is the art of the novel: the novel is made to look like a painting. The writer has paint words with his pen. The writer has to ornament the language. Tropes are the pictures of the novel. Tropes are musical pictures.
Narrative-Novel includes time and characterization. There are two types of time Narrative Time and Symbolic Time. Narrative Time is the consciousness of the writer. Joyce James was a master of it through his fictive technique called streams of consciousness. The second time is symbolic time where the character lives thinks and feels. Symbolic time would incorporate the past, present and the future. Character is the resonance of the soul. Character should bring out all what the writer cannot speak or do in everyday language. Character is a spiritual, soulful aesthetic artifact.
The Third, belongs to the genre called Philosophical-Fiction. The writer plays with the philosophy of language. Idioms, Parables, Epiphanies, Puns, Illusions, Allusions, giving philosophical meanings to words, coining new words (neologisms), interpreting older texts in new language all belong to the genre of Philosophical Fiction.
I thank Jesus Christ for being the muse of inspiration.
