Today was a slow moving day. Daylight opened its eyes with a pleasant smile. Tiny ones made their music and I enjoyed Nature with gusto.

 
Parable of the Good Samaritan
I am still reading the Gospel of Luke. I came across the parable of the Good Samaritan, told by Jesus. The Parable is as follows: once there was a traveler and on the way robbers attacked him and injured him and stole all his belongings. A priest came that way and ignored the cries of help emanating from the man. So too was Levite who distanced himself away from the victim. Then a Samaritan man came and he got off from his donkey; he put medicine and loaded the man on to the donkey and admitted him an inn. What is the meaning of this parable? Good Samaritan as an Idiom means helping the troubled sorrowful and sick. Mother Theresa was a Good Samaritan. We must become Good Samaritans in our daily walk of life.

 
Sacrifice
In the Old Testament we find God Jehovah asking Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac. Abraham without question obeyed the will of God implicitly. When the time of sacrifice came, God intervened and said to Abraham to sacrifice a ram whose horns were entangled. The sacrifice as an idiom means emerging victoriously from a problematic situation. Oh God let my days be a sacrifice. One can experience a sacrifice if one belongs to God.

 
Political Tamasha (Joke)
I am from the country OOOLALA. OOOLALA is a democracy and having elections this year. I am a neutral observer. This is what I have observed:
a) The electronic voting machines don’t function properly.
b) Thugs of the ruling party do booth rigging. They threaten polling officers at gun point.
c) There is a witch hunting of the people belonging to the opposition.
d) The elections is a political sham.

 
Evening passed melodiously as a song. They sky was a poet’s heart. The sky was ornamented with merry hues— like pink, orange and purple. You have to slow down your thoughts to appreciate nature. You have to be human to appreciate art. Nature is so tranquil and so beautiful.
I am wondering what the mindset of Dictators like Stalin and Hitler are. What has caused them to become Tyrants? Was it a bad childhood? If Hitler had not hated the Jews he would have been a successful leader. Do they come from a bad childhood? There are rumors that Hitler was an illegitimate son of Jew and his wanting to pulverize the Jews was the absence of fatherly love. Yes, I introduce a father figure complex. Father Figure Complex is an emotional miscarriage of scars in an individual not being requited with fatherly love. Both Stalin and Hitler are psychos with low emotional quotient. The purges of Stalin are bloody and violent. Dictatorship is a failed government.

 
What about the mindset of Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela? They are revolutionary leaders who achieved their rule by peaceful means. I would like to say that they have the Mother Teresa complex, meaning, a struggle without violence and a form of beautiful protest.

 
It is my fondest wish to visit all the art galleries of the world. Dali, Picasso, Van Gogh, Delvaux and Gauguin are my all time favorites. When will I get the ability to satisfy all my dreams? I also want to travel about and visit exotic places. I would love to write travelogues. You never know when wishes come true?
I also want to do Asemic Writing with a calligraphic pen. I don’t have one right now.

I watched the evening sky sinking joyfully. The sky colors, pink, purple and maroon were scattered and the clouds resembled an apron. I listened to the sounds of nature, the marvelous serenading of wind-chimes in poetic incantation. I thank God Jehovah Jesus for his beautiful creation.

 
I am still reading the Gospel of Luke and I am reading the various miracles of Jesus. I read into the portion where Jesus was tempted by the Devil after fasting in the wilderness for 40 days. The Devil said to Jesus, ‘if you are God cast these stones into bread’. Then Jesus replied ‘man does not live by bread alone but every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’ Yes, Christ admonishes gluttony. Secondly the Devil taking Jesus to the top of a mountain said: ‘throw yourself down and angels would come and catch you’. Then Jesus said: ‘though shall not test your God.’ God the great: knows your every desire that comes to your heart and he will satisfy them if it is his will. Thirdly the Devil showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and said: ‘it is all yours if you worship me’. Then Christ replied: ‘you shall worship God alone’. Yes, God is in control of your life and will take care of the needs of your heart. It also shows that God is the greatest Economist and he is the one who appoints rulers and governments and we are safe in his control. Yes ‘Ask and it shall be given’.

 
I finished reading Orwell’s 1984. The novel is a scathing vitriol on the Communist Government mainly an allegory for Soviet Union. Notable is the character portrayal of Winston. He is an individual who wants to break free from the fetters of communist oppression. The state is in control of the ministry and the ministry of entertainment has very ironic slogans like War is Peace. These slogans are a cute cosmetic showing the bastardization of wanting to control and brainwash the mind of individuals.
While reading the Gospel of Luke, I came across the story John the Baptist. When he was born: his father and his mother were very old. An angel came to his father: Zachariah and said: ‘greetings you will bear a son John and he will become a big preacher.’ Zachariah laughed and so the angel said: you will not be able to speak until the baby was born. When John was born: Zachariah wrote the name John and all were surprised. Zachariah as an idiom means, a person who does not believe. I am sometimes a Zachariah.

 
John the Baptist thundered the Jewish world with his ministry. He even when to the extent of baptizing Jesus as said in the scripture. King Herod has his head cut for his criticizing Herod’s adultery. John the Baptist as an idiom means a martyr. Due to leading the freedom movement in India: Mahatma Gandhi became John the Baptist.

The sky slept at night. Eyes twinkled in the sky. The sun swam like a dream. I have a Father who loves me in Heaven.

Morning opened a canvass of impressionism. Monet’s palette was painting the sky. Clouds were like gigantic scars. I thank Jehovah for this beautiful morn.

I have started reading the Gospel of Mathew. The Pharisees rebuked Jesus saying that he was using the Devil to perform miracles. Jesus replied with Stoic Calmness: Will Satan expel Satan? Will God expel God? What I am doing on earth, I am doing my father’s will in Heaven.

When I was working in Jakarta they used to pay me salaries in US Dollars. The value of the Indonesian currency is so low that 100$ equals 11 Million Indonesian Rupees Dollarization of the world is a financial conspiracy and it’s an agenda for establishing the person with the mark of the beast 666.

I would like to divulge the meaning of ART from the view point of existential philosophy. Being as Art has three states: angst, ecstasy and catharsis. The mind soul and body becomes recipient of these three states. Then comes the art of creation called: cerebra-celebration. Here art becomes applied as art, music, literature, science and math. There also two other states of becoming art and they are cognition and interpretation.

Does God answer our prayers? Yes he does! We have to pray without ceasing. God will answer our prayers. God Jehovah Jesus is the music of creation, and he is highest embodiment of art.

My coming to Christ was not an easy one. But I am so happy now and he has given me the peace that the world cannot give.
Going without bell and brake is an idiom in Malayalam and it means rushing headlong into something. The consequences of going without bell and brake can be disastrous.

Jesus said this parable: if a man has hundred sheep and if one is lost: won’t he go back and look for the lost sheep? Going after Sheep can be made into an idiom. As an Idiom it means learning from one’s mistakes. Yes, I am going after the sheep. When will you go after the sheep? What have you learnt after going after the sheep?

Who is the most beautiful person who lived on this earth? The answer is Jesus Christ the savior.

The Parable of the Seed is a beautiful parable to read. A farmer planted seed. Some fell on the road and the birds came and ate it away. Some fell on gravel and roots perished. Some fell amongst weed and when it grew the weed chocked it. Some seed feel on ground and it became good fruit. The seed which fell on the road refers to those who have dreams but have no hope. The seed that fell amongst gravel refers to those who have dreams but fear of failure makes them discouraged. The seed that fell on weed refers to people who are lazy and become failures in life. The seed that fell on good ground refers to people who have dreams and work hard to accomplish it.

Musings

I am writing a novel of 30000 Words and I am posting bits and chunks of it in my blog. I am so happy to have been read and liked.
The Novel is called: WORD BECAME FLESH and it is an allegory of the human and the divine in Christ Jesus.

I have denounced all ties with Occult and Satanism and I am fully redeemed in Christ. The Bible is a fantastic Book giving new insights every day. The Bible is the best work of Literature. It does not mean that I don’t encounter temptations; I do, in the walk of life and when I do I rebuke it by the blood of Jesus. The Blood of Jesus is POWER and demons flee. You can heal people with the Blood of Jesus. I have stopped dallying in dating sites and I devote my attention wholeheartedly to my wife. During my trials and tribulations she has stood strong as a rock. I have had multiple affairs and she has forgiven me and given me her heart.

I saw two trees flowered like music in the garden. One was purple flowered and shone in opulence. The other called as Vishu tree Cassia Fistula had bearings of yellow. Vishu is a New Year festival celebrated in Kerala. There’s something called Vishu Keni and it means giving coins for luck throughout the year. There’s also a bumper lottery draw. I wonder who will be the winner this year. Yes, Jehovah has made nature so beautiful. My heart sung a song of Joy. Christ has told me appreciate nature taking joy in little things of life. My heart underwent a passionate catharsis and I felt like I am making love. God is a mystic, engineering nature’s creation.
After coming to God Christ, I have stopped looking lecherously at women. Before coming to Christ I was a lecher. I remember Christ’s words: ‘if your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out’

Joyce

Joyce was a writer who tried to wean himself away from Catholicism and his writing became an objet d’ art. To what extent was he successful? Remarkable are his epiphanies in prose. Joyce was a person who experimented with the novel. The Ulysses is an epic novel, book of 800 pages covering a life of 12 hrs. I have written a novelette called Fictopia, a novelette lasting only a few seconds. As a writer I am always in search for the avant garde. Joyce was master of streams of consciousness a technique to express the inner consciousness of the writer.
There’s a paradigm shift talking place with the Novel of Postmodernism. There is very little importance given to the plot. I am sorry to say that pulp fiction, easy-go-entertainment-readers are still popular with the masses. Novels should become reader-interpreting texts. A postmodern novel is a philosophical novel of ideas, of innovation, a literature of new idioms, neologisms, new figures of speech, of playing with the language. A postmodern novel is a work of art.


Allegorical Pun

I have discovered a New Figure of Speech called the Allegorical-Pun. Now what is an allegory? It is clothing the language with symbols. The pilgrim’s progress is a classical example of an allegorical novel. A pun is a play of words. My allegorical pun is this. Example: The Lamb became the Lamp. The Lamb is the mortal body of Christ and the Lamp is his divinity. Christ while living on earth balanced his divinity and mortality.


The Raven that Fed Elijah

There is a story in the Old Testament of the Prophet Elijah who had to go into hiding. At that time God send a raven to feed him with meat and bread. As an Idiom it means a God that will satisfy all our material needs. My life is that of a Raven that fed Elijah.
