C.A.T. (Coalition Against Terror) Part 1

 

Donald Trumps “Ban” on Immigrants doesn’t have to be a terrible idea. If we were as thoughtful as we pretended to be, we would all realize one thing:

We Must Hold the Front Line of Civilization

 

The opportunistic terror regime  within Syria and Iraq and many other countries thrive on two sources of propaganda. The first is very complicated, but it can be overcome with education and cultural understanding. Of course, I’m talking about the radicalization of people.  (It’s happened before with the Catholics, so it isn’t a Muslim thing or an Islam tradition. Anyone with half a brain knows this.) However, the second source of propaganda fueling the current Middle Eastern terror movement is very simple. It’s the idea that The West (Christians and White People) hate the East (Muslims and Brown People.) This is obviously not the case.   However, since Donald Trump banned immigration from countries seriously affected by extremism, it can made to seem the case.

But, how can turning the countries completely over to the radical extremists, help anyone. Anyone who is thinking must realize that removing the affected people from their cities and countries will only make it easier for the terrorists to more take land and resources. And we can be sure that ISIS is not the end of these persecution squads. There will be more in the wings waiting for their chance to make headlines.

We can not help by depopulating the affected areas by the thousands upon thousands, removing the mothers and children to other lands when they are needed on the front lines of civilization to spread the true teachings of faith and family, whether it be in the name of Allah, or God, or Christ, or Buddha. The families who read scripture in their living rooms and pray for their neighbors and enemies alike can not be removed. Otherwise, there will be only extremists.

If anything, America and Europe and Australia should be moving thousands upon thousands of their citizens to Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, and other places ravaged by hate, as a front line civilization settlement program to displace poverty and bring in support for the people standing against groups like ISIS.

We should create battle plans that run toward the battle not away from it. Retreating is only giving the enemy more land, resources, and leverage.

The world has plenty of organizations that it’s created to handle international law: NATO, the UN, the EU are all used by member countries to judiciously settle disputes and if needed allocate soldiers, resources, and deadly force to solve problems around the world. But this militaristic mechanism doesn’t work against terrorists. It feeds their lie.

The world is now faced with a major vacuum of power. But, the vacuum grows stronger with every decent family evacuated from inside it. The citizens, citizens of the world, must reverse the vacuum by filling the void, not with tanks and soldiers only, but with the families and businesses and entire settlements filled with charitable hearts that once made the Middle East the cradle of civilization.

As we argue over whose going to pay for the refugee resettlement programs, the terrorist are destroying artifacts that defined cultures and traditions for hundreds and thousands of years. By emptying the land of it’s families and citizens, the terrorist leaders and every small time criminal organization throughout Syria, Israel, Jordan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and places throughout Africa are given the exact tools they need  to recruit because the people so many people are left behind are left with no one and no where to turn.

So, while everyone can’t leave Syria and allow the terrorist to hold the keys, the world can enrich the people, free the resources, and strengthen the local heart in these places by moving people to Syria.

 

How I Changed Everything (Magic Is Not What You Think It Is)

I changed everything by using magic and it’s not what most people think.

I’ll not list what magic is not. I’ll only explain the way magic works for me and let you understand the truth behind the principle and how fast this begins to work for everyone, including the people around you. You see, it doesn’t just affect you. It affects everyone you think about and interact with.

Even today, magic is looked down upon by people who claim that using it is evil and ungodly. However, after reading this short description of magic and how it works, I think anyone can see that evil and magic have nothing to do with each other.  It’s just a phenomenon of nature, just like the wind or the sun. We use the wind and sun and it’ even invisible, but that is not considered magic. It’s powerful and amazing and very real, but it is not evil, although it could be used for evil things. Sunburns seem evil sometimes and electricity which can be harnessed from wind or the sun can be deadly, but it is not evil.  Power companies can seem evil when they deprive a poor family of power in the winter or in the heat of summer, but that has nothing to do with the amazing and wondrous power of the sun and the wind.  Same thing applies to the amazing and powerful wonder of our mind and our intention.

What is Magic?

  • Magic is the “way you think” about an experience or a thing
  • Because the “way you think” controls the words you say
  • Because when you “speak” a series of vibrations is created
  •  And since everything is a vibration. It can be surmised that our thoughts create everything.

Science backs this up in many ways. The fact that everything is created by vibrations and that “super-position” is a real phenomenon. Everything, from the smallest known particle to the largest known galaxy, is vibration and know we know it can be in more than one place at a time.  Do you believe that? I know it seems unreal and impossible, but it’s pure science now. It’s not a conjecture or a part of a pseudo-science. The fact of “super position” has been proven in experiment after experiment. Just Google “super-position” or read into the absolutely mind-blowing experiment called “The Double Slit.”  — It’ll change the way you think about everything. It will prove to you that there is proof that reality is not the way we think it is.

So how can we use this new knowledge? How do these vibrations change everything and why do I call this magic?

Use vibrations to our advantage is as simple as being aware of your thoughts and not allowing yourself to think mindlessly. It really is that simple. It is also very complicated once realized because being aware of your thoughts and stopping mindlessness is not always easy. It really can be complicated to not think of things that low vibrations create.  Fear, hate, jealousy, anger, the things we now call drama. There are all things of low vibration.

How often do you think about something or someone without realizing where your thought process is leading you. Exactly what emotions is it causing and what is the purpose of your thoughts?  How often do you find yourself focusing on a past experience and not realize how it’s affecting your current attitude about the future?

Please understand that learning to monitor your thoughts is the beginning of the rest of your life and it will put you in 100% control of what happens to you from this moment forward. I don’t mean that the things you think are “bad” or inconvenient won’t ever happen again. But I am saying that if you don’t like what is happening to you, change the way you think about it. Knowing that “it won’t last forever” and that “you deserve something better” will cause an immediate change of your reality.

When that “bad” thing happens you must not think “this has ruined my life and I’ll never fix this or get over it.” Instead, monitor what you’re think and purposefully think “this is certainly a surprise. This will lead to more surprises and they will all come together in way that I can use to present a new part of myself.”

Why must you think that? Because usually these “surprises” do come together and turn out just fine in the end. nd they have a purpose. You will live through the same low frequencies until you learn to transform them into something higher. We all know that Worry and Anxiety create more of the same.  So, there is only one thing we can do to change it. Thing in higher vibrations.

Here are ways to and things to focus on and think about as you go through your day:

Guidelines You Can Begin Practicing:

Below are a few guidelines in which you should live your life. This list is not my own, for it is used by many to make their experience the best it can be.

Read these slowly.

  • Think for yourself. Never let anyone else think for you. Or you will become a prisoner of their thinking.
  • If I am to know anything, know that I know nothing. And every experience is a new one where I can present a new higher frequency.
  • Question why.
  • Believe in yourself. Believe you can achieve whatever you set your will to, and you “will achieve” the things you think about.
  • Love yourself. You’re worth it. Be grateful to everything and everyone. They’re worth it.
  • Appreciate your water and food, it will return the favor.
  • It’s okay to feel angry, express it properly then let it go.
  • Raise your fists in defense, never in abuse.
  • Appreciate your existence, it is one of the most special gifts anyone can receive. You have a personal body that you can create and re-create as you wish.
  • Accept & respect everyone’s right to personal choice. It’s their god given right to create and re-create themselves anyway they wish, don’t take it away.
  • Give the help someone is willing to receive, not the help you want to give them.
  • Have faith in your future, and your future will faithfully be waiting.
  • TAKE CARE OF THE EARTH and she will take care of us.
  • Be helpful wherever and whenever you can, and the world will be helpful to you.
  • Know when you can’t help someone, so you don’t waist your time trying.
  • Don’t be afraid to express who you are. You are a wonderful spark of creation. Express Your Self and allow others to do the same.
  • Choose your perception. Only you can choose how to experience anything. If you don’t like it? Change your perception of it. (A great example of this is what happens when you think your drinking milk, but it’s tea. It tastes nasty, but then you know it’s tea and realize it’s actually delicious.)
  • Your experience of the world comes through perceptions, change your perceptions and you will change the world.
  • Take a moment every now and again and observe the uniqueness of your particular situation, take a deep breath, smell the flowers, appreciate your exact location and experience in the universe, it is a place in time that will never happen again.
  • Eliminate habits of thinking that obstruct the universe’s ability to carry out your will.
  • Have fun, you never have to stop being a kid.
  • The universe communicates with all of us. She tells us her secrets and answers all of our questions, we just have to communicate and then pay attention for the answer.
  • Know when to keep your mouth shut and play dumb.
  • Always do your best and you will never have anything to regret.
  • Eliminate or reduce toxic relationships. You wouldn’t stay in a room that stinks so why would you stay in a relationship that stinks.
  • It’s okay to to make mistakes, learn from them and do things differently next time.
  • Remember that, I am not just some body. I am spirit with a body.
  • Remember that, I am a force of nature, nothing can stop my true path. I will ensure my own success
  • All of life is a circle, what you send out comes back.
  • We each create our personal reality by transmitting our powers of manifestation. Learn how to clean up their transmissions so that the can create precisely with their intent.
  • Do what you love. If you can’t yet, love what you do, and your world will love you too.
  • Practice compassion.
  • Smile, you just might make someone’s day.
  • Accept people and the world the way they are, but work to change it for the better.
  • One thing is for sure of anyone who has ever succeeded, they never gave up.
  • You cant change someone, you can only change yourself and hope that they can grow from that.
  • All you see in your world is the outcome of your ideas about it.
  • You are what you think you are. You are your own thoughts about yourself, made manifest.
  • Life is not a process of discovery, it is a process of creation.

Like I said, this list is not unique and it was not created by me. It’s just the rules we have all heard before and have tried to live by at times. Be Mindful of yourself and of the vibrations your create.

Music: The Next Production

I’m feeling music reawakening and it’s always a worrying prospect. such a load of work and determination that fills night, day, awake, and sleeping moments. It’s so consuming, all consuming, taking time from every aspect of life. Nothing can stand up to a determined musician when he is visited by the Muse.

I like creating music and writing songs and putting together shows more than anything. Being in a band is a life long obsession of mine. I have an unfulfilled wish pertaining to music and it has to do with a band, a laptop, and a projector.

I don’t just want to play videos behind the band as they perform, but sync some public domain to some shred metal and create an hour show. I feel this deep in my bones.

What movies would I use? Buster Keaton, Chaplin, and some cartoons to start. I’m just now feeling the inspiration rise in me, but I know it will peak and something will come forward.

I want to do it with a band as well and create original footage to play as we perform.

I have limited experience creating videos. You can find a few on this blog that I made for a band where I played bass, Minor Nine, but here is a video I made for a abdn from Tennessee called Afterlife, where one of the old members of Minor Nine now plays.

 

 

The video below has terrible resolution, but I still like it.

 

I will put together a band, create original videos, and have a multi-media show.  It is already coming together.

The Pope called Trump un-Christian

I don’t think the Pope should ever call another person un-Christian. I feel as if the Catholic church does many unbiblical things, but that does not make a catholic un-christian. I also feel as if the Pope is personally attacking Trump over the immigration/wall issue. Below are a few Bible verses that the Catholic church seems to over look.

I’m will not go into depth about everything I find “off” about the catholic religion because I don’t believe that anything mankind does it perfect.  However, here are a few verses I find important that seem to be overlooked by the Vatican.

Calling priests father

Matthew 23:9: “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Creating statues of saints and other religious figures

Lev 26:1:  “Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it. I am the LORD your God.

Praying through Mary as way to reach God

1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”

About holding Mary higher than other women

Luke 11:27-28: As he said these things, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts at which you nursed!” But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”

 

 

Frequency Shift: a metaphysical exchange (part 1)

Change will not come if we wait for somebody else or some other time. You are the one you’ve been waiting for. You are the change that you seek and desire.

I feel I should share a piece of my thinking with everyone. Some people might think I’m a bit egotistic to think this way, but here goes. “We can never lose, and we can never win, because we are the trophy. We are the prize we are striving for every single day and night.” Now when you begin to think this though, remember there is something we often forget. Remember this: our job in this life is to become the best version of ourself. Now, how can you become the best version of you? Do you know what being in your “heart space” is about? I don’t know more than you, I am just another person trying to figure out this whole process of “waking and sleeping.” I am learning that we, as humans, are the original technology and in learning this I know I can change the reality of my surroundings. I realize that this sounds crazy to others, but if you know me you know that I do have the power to manifest anything I put my mind too — even accidently. I use words, thoughts, and actions to change my frequency. Have you ever tried to change yours?

 

David Bowie and Blackstar Lyrics

I have been listening to David Bowie’s last album everyday since my girlfriend bought it. Many people know that I am a student of religion and philosophy. So, even before he passed on from this life to the next, I heard some words in this songs that made me think about Christianity.  The title song itself “Blackstar” caused me to think he was writing about religion because the Devil is refered t as the Morning Star. I think by calling himself a Blackstar he was admitting that knew he was a sinner in need of salvation.

To be more specific, Blackstar seems to be a revelation (a conversation) between himself and his Spirit. Here are some lyrics that stuck out to me:

“In the villa of Orman.”

Orman is in Syria and Jesus did some inportant things in Syria. Did you know that Jesus appointed Peter as the first Pope while in Syria?  So, that solitary candle, could mean the beginning of the Church. Was David Bowie Catholic?  I don’t know. Maybe this is his way of saying he was.

“Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried”

The Bible says know that Jesus cried in The Garden of Gethsemene and that he took our place in Death. Christians believe that something did indeed happen on the day of execution. Salvation happened.

” On the day of execution, on the day of execution only women kneel and smile,”

Now this lyric brings to the foreground the woman who was at Jesus’ grave. There were no men gathered there. Only Mary Magdelene was present when he Jesus approached his own tomb. She was kneeling and weeping.  But imagine the “smile” she would have had on her face when she realized it was in fact Jesus that she was talking to in John 20:16-18

These few lines from Blackstar make me smile, just as Mary must have smiled. Because as a Christian, I want to believe that David Bowie, is a brother in Christ and  will be singing in God almighty Choir when I get there myself.

More lyrics from “Blackstar.”

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place,

How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd

I can’t answer why
Just go with me
I’m-a take you home
Take your passport and shoes
And your sedatives, boo
You’re a flash in the pan
I’m the Great I Am

I can’t answer why
But I can tell you how
We were born upside-down

Born the wrong way ‘round

Thank you for reading. I know religion is a hard subject to read about, expecially if it is somepne else’s explanations that they have cobbled together on their own. I realize I am only a person and I havven’t an answers, only curiosity. We will all miss David Bowie and I like to imagine him in heaven working with all those voices to create a joyful noise.

The Librarian

The Librarian

by Thadd Presley

I went to the library today looking for a new book to begin reading and I came across a book by Johnathan Kellerman titled “True Detectives.”  I haven’t began reading it yet, but I’m hoping it will be a great book because he has many books and I’d like to find a new author to really sink my reading brain into. I feel like I’ve been writing so much lately that I have forgotten what it’s like to have a really good book to read.

With all that in my head, I came home and saw this meme on my facebook wall.

librarians

I thought about it for a while and it occurred to me that Librarians are not really generals at all. They are more priest-like and the head of a long and important line of The Illuminated. And being just that, Librarians have trained long and hard to reach their position. Yet, in modern times, many of the people who use the library don’t realize that the man or woman behind the desk who stamps the date in the back of the book, actually spent many years in college learning what is known as Library Science and many of our local librarians have earned the title of Library Science Masters.

Yes, there is prestige in being the librarian. There is honor and history and science behind these humble people of knowledge and we have not been taught to give them the respect they deserve. We are being systematically desensitized to the amazing achievement which is the library.

The Library

The first libraries existed over 8000 years ago! The Mesopotamians wrote on their history and ideas on clay tablets to preserve the knowledge they wanted to pass onto the world that followed. Thousands of these clay tablets have been discovered in the palaces and temples where they were stored and arranged long ago. These palaces and temples were the first real libraries.

The Egyptians wrote their knowledge on papyrus scrolls, which they also stored in palaces and temples. The most famous library in history was in Alexandria, built around 300 BC. It held nearly 700,000 scrolls.

The Romans planned the first system of public libraries and by the year 4 AD, wealthy citizens has began to build their own libraries. Suddenly, there was 28 libraries in Rome.

When the Christian Era began, libraries became part of the churches and monasteries. Monks read and copied books, so in that time many of the libraries were due to their hard work.

By the year 1400 the University of Oxford began to organize it’s library.  It is still the largest University library in the world.

In 1850 the English Parliament created our current library system and it has grown into the institution that it is today.

Every word of knowledge, every definition, and fact ever known has been written in a book, so that future generations, and the current one as well, can find the knowledge they want to know.

And now, the internet has been invented, but without the words having first been gathered and arranged in books it would have been forgotten long before the internet age. It was these books and these people who made libraries possible that has shaped and re-shaped our world.

The librarian is not just the person who tells you that your book is over due. The librarian is the priest, the palace guard, the university head, and a monk all in one, because it is the librarian who holds the key to all the words, knowledge, and traditions the world has ever known.

I Love Numbers

I have always loved numbers. I love science and equations and nature. I want to know if math is a natural phenomenon ( a natural product of nature) which we have just began to figure out (like we are trying to figure out gravity) or is math a language that we have invented to understand things like gravity and counting?

I love words as well, but I know that words are just part of a universal language which we invented to describe the natural phenomenon we call thoughts. We think it and we use words to describe it. But math is there and can’t be explained any easier than it already presents itself.  1+1=2 and that is that.  Sure I can make it harder, but that’s not the point of math. Where at times words are better when they are drawn out and made a bit wordier with description and unimportant details, but math is not like that. Numbers can not be added on and drawn out to make an equation better. Extra numbers are quickly crossed out and ignored.

Math often comes in the form of unknowns. Such as F = (G x (M1 x M2/r))  and for a long time G was unknown and still could change due to existence of gravitational waves.

So, I love math and I love words and more than anything I would love to win the lottery tonight since it is upto 1.5 billion dollars.  Could you imagine 1,500,000 thousand dollar bills? I can’t.  But look at the numbers below.   It is only a thought experiment, but is it possible?

The Lottery and the numbers there in:

Everyone has a 1 in 293,000,000 chance to win the jackpot. So why doesn’t a rich someone buy 293 million tickets at 2 bucks a pop and spend around 586 million to win every single prize offered.  Even after taxes and everything taken out they would still make a profit.

Now, a gloomier side of math. Here are just a few numbers about the U.S.A and it’s national debt:

I here about the National Debt all the time these days. Either from Donald J. Trump or from my friends and family. I know the debt is 18 trillion dollars, but that is only a small percent of what the US really owes.

Here is what the government owes to the American People, since it has spent the money the accounts paid into by Americans: Social Security is owed 14 trillion, 27 trillion to the Medicare Liability Fund, and 100 trillion to other unfunded liabilities.

There is also another 5 trillion on top of the 18 trillion owed externally that is not talked about openly.

In total the government owes far, far more to the American people than it does to external entities.

To put everything in perspective, the national taxe revenue is 3.3 trillion a year plus 1.6 trillion from the state level, while congress has agreed to spend 3.7 trillion each year for 2016 and 2017, which adds up to 5.4 trillion more in debt.

Other numbers show a worse picture – median pay in 2000 was 28,135  and in 2015 it was 29,035.  median home cost in 2000 was 165,000 while in 2015 it rose to 293,000 dollars.

pay checks went up less than a thousand dollars in 15 years, but home prices went up over 100,000 dollars?

unemployed is officially 7,800,000, but the actual number is 15 million. (this is the numbers washington has)  — and 92 million people are not in the work force at all.

anyway, I’ve been thinking about numbers all day because of the lottery.

if everyone has a 1 in 293 million chance to win, than Donald Trump could buy 293 million tickets at 2 bucks and spend 586 million and win every single prize offered.

Thadd Presley’s Christmas Wish List

Dear Santa, as you know, I’m a big reader. I even love it more than writing. Recently, I was thinking about buying a book because I didn’t have anything new to read and I wanted a short story collection so bad, but after looking in all the stores in Oak Ridge and Knoxville, I couldn’t find one that I really wanted. So, I started wondering how many writers were out there that nobody knew existed. I knew there was one at least that is unknown and wondering: is there anybody out, is there anybody out there who could write the greatest short story collection ever, if they only decided to write one?

And the answer came to me faster than one of your magical reindeer fly. The answer was, of course, the great and powerful Roger Water, who’s words are forever sang and revered.

I know that if he wrote a short story collection it would set records that would take years to break. Much like the words in the albums he is known to occasionally write, this book would become a record setting machine and would set a record that would never be broken. Like the album “Dark Side of the Moon,” which stayed in the charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988 and selling 50 million albums worldwide., this book of fiction would become a testament of legend.

So, I’m sure, Santa,  that you’ve heard “The Dark Side of the Moon” and “The Wall” which I’m citing as major examples of the skill and power Mr. Roger Waters is capable of putting into his words.  And since he is such a gift to the literary world it’s not like I’m asking for this gift out of selfishness. No, I’m writing this for the world. It will be a gift to humanity itself.

So please, Santa, please make Mr. Waters write a book of fiction. I want to read it so bad and I’ve been good all year. Well, you know I was good for some of it.  Please Santa, this is my only Christmas wish and I promise to be better next year if I can have this one, single thing.  Thank you Santa for all you’ve done for all the other children around the world. I love you so much.

P.S.

And also, Santa will you make him name it “Diving Deep?”  I think “Diving Deep” would be a good title for Roger Waters to use when he writes it.

And P.S. again,

Santa will you please become a racecar driver? You would win every time.

Signed, Thadd Presley

The Universe is inside of us

Have an of you ever heard the music created by Symphony of Science. It is really an experience to listen to it, even though it’s a collection of scientist’s talks set yo an auto-tuned track. I’ve always been truly impressed by the songs they have.  Take a moment and listen to “We Are All Connected.

Carl Sagan said that the Universe created humanity because it wanted to know itself. I take it a step further and say that we have eyes because the cosmos wanted to see itself. I also believe that all of our atoms were created inside of stars. Inside of each and everyone of us are pieces from all points in Time and parts that came from many places in the Universe. It’s amazing to think that at one time the elements we are made from did not exist. Therefore, before we were possible, iron and oxygen and many other atomic structures had to be imagined and created. Only later did it become possible to have organic machines as complicated as we are.

There is a famous photo taken by on of the Space Telescopes that looks like an eye.

The last time I wrote about metaphysics and our amazing existence, I told how I thought Super Clusters looked like bigger versions of neurons in our brains. I explained how our consciousness might continue to exist as part of this larger structure even after our bodies die. The similarities of such large structures and tiny ones inside of our bodies can not be a coincidence. There is a bigger picture out there and we will someday find it.

You can read my last post on super clusters and neurons here:  http://fictionweekly.net/what-happens-when-we-die/

The galaxy above is amazing, but below I leave you with another beautiful representation of how our Universe exists right inside of us.  Our eyes look more like galaxies than the galaxy above looks like an eye.   Isn’t this unbelievable.

 

eye of the galaxy
Each eye is a galaxy of it’s own
