We can’t legislate morality!

Legislation or laws are simply the guardrails to attempt to CONTROL peoples actions. Period.

Intention and actions stem from a persons morality, from their heart and beliefs. Better to curb the things that influence those choices, like putting less violence in movies, TV, games, etc and horror and torture, etc.

REMEMBER: Cain killed Abel with a rock!!! 

I had riflery and archery classes in (gasp!) HIGH SCHOOL!!! And yes, we shot REAL rifles and aimed REAL arrows at targets! No one went on a rampage and killed other kids. Can you imagine having such classes in schools NOW??? I can’t either. Why?

When I was in high school, children were taught right from wrong and we had RESPECT for others, even when we disagreed. We fought on the playground, sure. Bullying occurred–I was bullied, even before kindergarten! But parents actually parented and most of us didn’t want to get sent to the school principal who would PADDLE US! Now, I don’t believe as much in the corporeal punishment or guiding children using fear, but I do believe in encouraging children to RESPECT their parents, and follow their loving HEART. So, let’s start there. Let’s start by teaching Meditation in schools, and respect for things that can kill us, like medications/drugs, cars/motorcycles, and weapons.

Why do we argue when what matters is that we simply… BE Jesus. Sheila Murrey

I do all I do, blog, write books, and all of that to empower people to change their HEARTS! Let’s BE more loving. Let’s BE more respectful. Let’s BE more sane. Let’s help others make changes that will allow their hearts to guide them so violence is not the end result. I want us all to vibrate at a higher level to argue and disagree LESS and be able to live in Peace.

Do I believe we can, YES! Will we? I’m not sure. I have hope! Yet, in the meantime, I prepare. Do I have all the answers, no.

One of my friends posted something on Facebook the other day that shook me. She was highlighting the need for MORE gun control and more rules, and more, blah blah blah… and I didn’t say anything or comment, but that’s opposite where my gut feeling goes on this issue. And perhaps she forgot that a past University president (where we both worked at the time) QUIT his job for the University to go to work for a gun manufacturer!!!

Guns in the right hands, trained and skilled hands, for example SAVE LIVES! I’d rather be on a ranch with Ted Nugent at the end times than sitting alone in a cave meditating, though don’t get me wrong, I reach for ENLIGHTENMENT and I love caves, but when the army of insane maniacs are coming over the hills to ravage and plunder, I want someone who can help me protect myself and my family right there beside me! And I’m okay if you think I’m wrong, or if you disagree. As my first and highest thoughts are of FREEDOM and CHOICE. (and by the way, fighting for FREEDOM has been the driving force behind ALL of our USA military since the beginning.)

If someone entered my home with willful intent to harm myself or my husband, yes, we have a gun, and I know how to use it. Do we need a semi-automatic gun? No, but I might be able to scare off and fend off a would be attacker if we did. Thus, I am not against those. Besides, the criminals have them. That cat has already been let out of the bag, so to speak.

Does it come down to whether you want a slow dying process or fast one? I don’t know. And how are we “programming” people?

I pray as if it’s ALL up to Omniscience–God’s timing and act as if it’s ALL up to ME (in particular for myself and those close to me, as I know I cannot and don’t want to CONTROL the world). If I am to “go out” that way (quickly with a gun), then I am ready for the Grand Beyond. Do I hope others are not “taken out” that way, yes. But I also don’t want to see others suffer and go to the Grand Beyond by the “slow death” of chronic illness either. And that’s why I do what I do.

My dad took me hunting with him when I was growing up, and we ate squirrel and venison, rabbit, and so forth. But gradually over the years, my dad gained more compassion for the animals and quit hunting, but that desire, not to hunt anymore, came out of his HEART. He grew his heart over the course of his life to BE more loving.

And as an aside here, I’d like to say that when the powers that be take pharmaceutical ads off TV, I might reconsider my stance on guns, but for now, all I can do is raise awareness that EVIL lies in humans’ hearts, and it’s impossible to legislate morality.

Time wasted on turning locks and opening cabinet doors

Ah, the years of our lives we waste turning keys in locks and opening (and closing) cabinet doors! Okay, the cabinet doors are a pet peeve of mine.

Have you ever given this any thought?

Locks and keys

We have locks and keys to protect things or ourselves. But what is Protection?

We must keep others from robbing us. Or we must keep someone from taking something from us.

Sit with the word, Protection.

That’s all about Boundaries. Control. Ownership.

Next time you waste a second of your life turning a key in a lock, getting a key out of a pocket or finding a lost key, think about this. Is not EVERYTHING, God’s?

Cabinet doors

Why do we need cabinet doors?

What are we hiding?

Do cabinet doors hide our mess?

I abhor these kinds of doors! They take time to clean, restore, paint, etc. And I want all the time back that I have wasted opening and closing them!

When we adopt mindful ways of living, we notice what is no longer needed. And to me, we no longer need cabinet doors!

Cabinet doors only exist because some cabinet maker wanted to be able to charge more money for his cabinets! Ha! Who needs them?

What the hell do cabinet doors protect?

Dust, mice, or insects still find their way into cabinets anyway, even with cabinet doors on them, so really, I think they are unnecessary.

Years ago, I changed my mind about the need to have cabinets at all! Ha!

In fact, in the second house we bought, we took down all the upper cabinets (in the kitchen) and replaced them with open wire, chrome shelves! It was sooo much easier to clean, and to put dishes away, and looked great!

Years later, we removed ALL the wood cabinet doors in our RV too! (We put them back on to sell it, but I always preferred to SEE what we stored in the cabinets and save ourselves the time and effort of opening and closing them.

What do you think?

Before with cabinet doors open:

Bedroom cabinet doors on but open

Before with cabinet doors closed:

Bedroom cabinet doors on and closed

After we removed the cabinet doors:

Bedroom cabinet doors removed

Living room and kitchen:

Kitchen and Living room with cabinet doors on but closed

I loved how this looked without cabinet doors, when we lived in it and I had all of my stoneware, crystal glasses, and food stuff arranged “just so.” (I’m still looking for those pictures and will post at some point. But thanks to my son taking these photos, I now have some to share!)

RV kitchen without cabinet doors (easier and cleaner to maintain)

RV kitchen and living room without cabinet doors

RV living room without cabinet doors (except we loved the leaded glass doors and left them on)

We leaded glass doors on the side cabinets above the TV were a factor in us buying this particular RV back in 2010. My mom had leaded glass doors on her custom wood cabinets in our home in West Virginia (WV) years ago, so they attracted me to this unit.

I have 5,000 pictures to go through on my laptop but soon, I believe I’ll find some pictures of what this looked like when I had my crystal glasses, Fenton, and so forth in these upper cabinets. Stay tuned! (Wink!)

Be Jesus

Be Jesus

You’ve heard, “Just Do It” as the marketing slogan. And you say you’re a Christian. But you don’t live like Jesus lived. You say it’s because He was God, or God in human form. You say He was perfect and that you cannot be perfect, because you are not God or not The Son of God.

But Jesus said WE are all sons and daughters of God. And that we could do even greater things than He did when He walked the earth.

Faith is trusting and knowing without any doubt.

BE Jesus.

Egoless

Jesus didn’t come to collect followers or win friends. He came to show us what IS possible. That it IS our birthright to live as He did. Study the scriptures with an eye to understand HOW He lived.

Living like Jesus has nothing to do with Ego.

Surrender your Ego.

This whole “need to be perfect,” and “need to be protected” stuff is all driven by Ego. That’s the only “work” you have to do—to let go of that.

BE Jesus.

Ego is manmade, and typically found when we get caught up in comparing ourselves (or our accomplishments) to others.

We are each unique, so all comparisons fall flat. No comparisons are needed. Comparisons are a waste of time. Waste of Energy.

Perfection

Ah, why do we limit our potential, limit our power by thinking we are not perfect? Jesus came to clean us and offer His “perfect protection.” So, why do we doubt ourselves? Do we doubt Him?

I don’t need to be perfect, or protected because I know that I’m enveloped by Omniscience. And I don’t say that with ANY sense of Ego.

I have spoken with some about this and they don’t understand.

It seems to me that being enveloped by Omniscience is when one is resonating IN a high level of faith, trust, knowing. IN that state of blissful resonance, one rests and surrenders to “Everything Resolves to Gratitude.”

One understands the meaning of that phrase.

Personal relationship with Jesus the Christ via the Holy Spirit is wonderful… but I have never felt it necessary to “convert” others or that Jesus is the ONLY way to God. Holy dialogue is inclusive. Jesus (in his lifetime) was the way to get around having to go to a priest to commune with God. Holy Spirit (Spirituality) is available to ALL.

It will ALL work out in the end. Breathe. Be still and know.

Be Whole.

BE Jesus.

Borders, boundaries, and walls

Boundaries

Isn’t it interesting that as the author of The fences of religion, I’m now making a case for a border wall? I’ve turned the kaleidoscope to look at this subject in a multitude of ways.

To every season, turn, turn, turn.

Information has recently come my way in defense of a U.S. and Mexican border wall, and I know many of my readers may be surprised (even disheartened), as to my feelings on this hotly debated issue.

But, as someone with skin in this (as my husband is one of the more than 800,000 furloughed workers–because 800,000 only counts the federal employees and my husband is a contractor), and much of NASA is closed down, I thought I should weigh in. I don’t have to go public with my opinion–so, grant me this before berating me, okay?

I’ve written about some deep topics on this blog before, though nothing political. That’s because as a registered Independent, I don’t vote in either primary election.

I was raised as a Republican, and changed to a Democrat in my 30s. Now, I’m pretty much fed up with the two major parties and lean towards the Green or Libertarian parties. We need to govern by the Constitution.

Wall of water

Remember the wall of water near the end of the movie, The Abyss?

Abyss wall of water
Abyss wall of water

That’s kind of how I see this southern border wall issue. In the movie, the aliens needed to remain in the water, but Ed Harris needed to breathe, so they parted the water forming a water wall, yet continue to communicate.

In an upcoming article, I’ll tell you why I believe “the veil” is a temporary boundary.

Temporary

Walls are a temporary measure (all man made things are temporary), until hearts and minds change and there is no more need for “protection.”

Protection

Until the word, PROTECT, is removed from the dictionary, the constitution, oaths, etc. we need border security. We need to at least slow the flow of illegal immigrants from coming across the southern border. Besides, the democrats voted for the wall when Obama was president. They can vote for it now. I’m tired of the childish BS. And I’m really tired of the propaganda.

The question really is one of protection. And anyone who’s read my blog, Take It Upon Yourself, knows how much I love to dig into the real questions. The deep questions.

When we get to the mindset that “it really is all good” and that there is “value in Everything”, perhaps the emphasis will shift from protection to compassion and connection (which is what I inherently desire). This is why I’ve been silent on this issue until now.

Under construction

I didn’t know until the other day that the Army Corp of Engineers is already building The WALL in sections, and replacing sections of old wall! So…this IS happening no matter what the Dems want.

Other walls

Israel has a wall. Israel says that wall is for border security. And from what I’ve read, Congress had no problem funding it (no problem continuing to send money to Israel though they have a wall). I don’t like what’s going on there either, but that’s another story and why I wouldn’t want to live there. Thank Omniscience I was born in THIS country.

The great wall of China certainly served a purpose in its time.

Great wall of ChinaGreat wall of China

Division in Nature

Every living thing has walls and borders—including us. It’s called skin. Cells have walls. Organs have walls. Walls are necessary to control order and flow.

If our blood vessels didn’t have walls, we wouldn’t live very long. So, it seems walls are needed to ensure things work. Division is necessary for a design to work.

Holism and Oneness simply allows for ALL to work.

One of the beautiful things about the Universe is how it organizes things, but I digress. I just don’t think walls are inherently bad. There is value in Everything.

Applying logic

For some time now, I’ve been on the fence about this whole issue, because by nature, I’m a “don’t fence me in” girl (note the picture of my granddaughter at the mountain top park fence), with one of my favorite songs from the 1960s being, “Tear Down the Fences.”

With my nature to explore, roam, etc. and be migratory (we are full-time RVers and I am of Native American heritage in part), I am all for having the freedom to move about. But, I can’t walk into someone else’s house uninvited. I can’t scale the wall of my favorite actors home without being shot. And I’m glad there are electric fences and armed guards around prisons.

But, as I looked at the picture of Jennifer at the fence today, my AHA moment was that the fence protected her from falling over the edge (of the mountain).

Don’t fence me in
Don’t fence me in

Notes

Philosophically and spiritually, I agree with those who say that borders and walls separate. Obviously, right? I mean, I’m the one who writes that We Are All Connected. And for many years, I have said that you cannot legislate morality.

I watched the Berlin wall be taken down (and had a chunk of it), and supported the fall of the wall at the time. However, hearts and minds have to change first.

I am always seeking balance, and because I doubt much that is shared from the far left and the far right, any negative comments will be deleted.

Life’s short. Feel good. ❤️🦋☯️
