#FPQ

Objectively Speaking Fact and Intentions

The FPQ question of today is prompting us to answer this…

“Do you believe that anyone can really experience anything objectively? Why or why not?”

Yes, I do believe we can all experience objectively. Stop first and analyze our motive for our actions and even our thoughts.
Understanding our purpose in life; which is the same for all of us, the objective purpose to serve God. Therefore when we act in such a way that the highest motive of our action serving HIM we experience that moment in time objectively.

Simply put ask yourself; what is our Intention of doing, thinking, pursuing!

EXAMPLE

Giving generously as much as we can, if we give freely because we love God; thereby we obey Him when He teaches “Love your neighbor as yourself.” However, if our motive of giving is the secondary motive of PRIDE, by that I mean, God does not enter our action we offer because we want the world to see how generous and beautiful a person or organization we are.
Although a good action that benefits, still it is not done with the most significant motive but the lesser.

Poetry with a question

I intended to add this to Mr.Linky on dVerse, for today’s open link Night. However,  I hesitate to again mistaken rules of the poetry form, at the same time anxious to learn. This one here is my attempt at putting it into the formation of a Nonet, but to fit it, I had to change the wording just a little on Joyce Kilmer’s famous poems titled “Trees” lines in question are 11-12. My question would be, is it permitted to change a quote, just a little?

Nonet poetry: nine lines with the syllable count of
9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1

God’s design! His poets find God through
His handiwork; some with just sight
While others are gifted with
The vision as Kilmer
states, “Poems are made
by fools like me
only God
makes a
tree.”

Time to examine our conscience

#FPQ His question of the week and my answer or opinion whatever the reader wants to believe.

“Do you believe that size matters? Please explain your response.”

I have discovered when I do my grocery shopping in the produce section, the smaller the banana, tomato, onion, watermelon or whatsoever, the sweeter the taste. Maybe it’s just my imagination! Having posted that I think size does matter. Consider also: “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.” I am concerned since my son is 6’5″ … ouch!  Love him anyway!

Majority or minority also come to mind, reminding me of a quote I read many years ago, I don’t remember who’s words, but it was profound. “The majority are at times on the wrong side.” It was similar to this quote here from Mark Twain.

Majority

Is Nothing, Something?

 

Best way to get attention, in my opinion, is to ask for advice or ask a question like the title of this post today!  Daily Inkling wants to know.

*******

We find SOLITUDE when we dream, we write, compose and discover our sub-conscience.

Remembering, recollection, hindsight of a dream while traveling through
space and time. My trip began early one morning while still dark, dozed off on my coach and experienced a rare dream; rare because it was one that I remembered every detail upon returning.

While in my fantasy state, trying to explain how God always was and how did He become God anyway; boggled with that thought. I began to imagine if there never was a God there would be NOTHING! That was when the question entered, begging for an answer, only an atheist can answer. Is nothing, something?

Fantasy and back
Question without an answer
Only through our dreams

HE knows; so do YOU!

FOWC another blogger here on WordPress always has some exciting prompts to excite our way of thinking. Today the word is “Heretic.”

One can ask a zillion people what heresy is; receive definitions from A to Z with numerous various opinions in between. Example: What is the truth?

God knows the heart and soul of each of us; He knows the opportunity we have been given to know the Truth, He knows if we want His Truth or do we want our truth?

This particular verse in the Apocalypse of the Bible sums it up for me, simple and to the point:

“But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.”
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 3:16]

Define RACIST … or QUIT!

 

The prompt word today is “forlorn”… in a short wink, the only point of the word might be when I consider the media these forlorn days of reading, hearing their delivery of commentary on what in the past described as”NEWS,” today it is more like FORLORN rumors.

Let us begin by thinking!

Those to the left and right, what is wrong with Making America Great?
Make America Great Again, BY demanding TRUTH from the media.

And MEDIA MAKERS EVERYWHERE the next time you refer to a conservative as a racist… PLEASE define the word RACIST in your narrative, to avoid any misconception.

REMEMBER IT BEGINS WITH YOU!

Journalists are THE FIRST to bring us the TRUTH, remember what Albert Einstein said:

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”

As a traditional Catholic, it is a practice of mine to pray the daily rosary, as requested at the miracle of Fatima where every person believer or not witnessed the wonder of the sun. The story here:    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miracle_of_the_Sun

It is always encouraged while praying with a voice we also meditate on the life of Christ. Well, the other day while I was contemplating the story of how Our Lord at the age of 12, was lost for three days.

Luke 2; 41-52)
And His parents went every year to Jerusalem, at the solemn day of the pasch, [42] And when He was twelve years old, they going up into Jerusalem, according to the custom of the feast, [43] And having fulfilled the days, when they returned, the child Jesus remained in Jerusalem; and His parents knew it not. [44] And thinking that He was in the company, they came a day’s journey, and sought Him among their kinsfolks and acquaintance. [45] And not finding Him, they returned into Jerusalem, seeking Him.

[46] And it came to pass, that, after three days, they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, hearing them, and asking them questions. [47] And all that heard Him were astonished at His wisdom and His answers. [48] And seeing Him, they wondered. And His mother said to
Him: Son, why hast thou done so to us? Behold thy father, and I have sought thee sorrowing. [49] And He said to them: How is it that you sought me? did you not know, that I must be about my Father’s business? [50] And they understood not the word that He spoke unto them.

[51] And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them. And His mother kept all these words in her heart. [52] And Jesus advanced in wisdom, and age, and grace with God and men.
[Luke 2:1-52]

Is it possible this was a prefigurement of the three days He was in the tomb before He rose from the dead on Easter morning?

Many believed at that time He was also lost to death, but He was found.
