Understanding the Basics...Part 12

Things no longer taught in our Churches and Synagogues....

~written from the common sense perspective of The Winds of the Soul~

by Dr. Gregory C.D. Young, Ph.D./D.Phil.(Oxon.)

to the book

So, I posed a question.... Namely, how would we know that Jesus is the Christ, or that the Scriptures are true, without someone telling us?

I didn't mean to leave you hanging last month regarding the tenet of Faith, but last writing was intended as a primer, so as to more fully understand the underlying basis of our Faith; those things of which we need to be reminded and why.  

As we saw in August's newsletter, without knowing what our "Faith" should be as well as to whom it should be in (i.e., the Lord Jesus Christ), we become like tinkling symbols in the wind, chanting our beliefs without ever really understanding them as Isaiah pointed out, and thus never really embracing Faith, but only vainly approaching it. 

So, I posed a question.... Namely, how would we know that Jesus is the Christ, or that the Scriptures are true, without someone telling us?  By what metric is that to be measured?  Furthermore, and for the same reason, why is it that some only belief in the Old Testament, but not in the New Testament nor the Christ that is witnessed therein, whereas others may believe in the "Bible," but pick and choose as to what books are to be included as those reverenced as Holy?  Or indeed, how do others still believe in more.., more revelation, more direction..., etc, when others do not?

And yet, in like mode, how are we to know what is the truth in our respective faiths, when so many amongst us who claim to be Christians believe in so many different things..., some strictly holding that those that do not agree with them considering a particular denominational dogma, or find with them certain particular limitations as to what "are" and what "are not" considered the Scriptures, are completely "out of the way?" 

Similarly perhaps, why do Muslims believe in the Qur'an, which book specifically and directly commends them to the writings of the Bible, and then most pointedly to the words of the Apostles, testifying that their testimony is true, but then summarily renounce the entirety of Judeo-Christianity in the end.... even after their own respected scriptures tells them otherwise.  How can one follow such blatant inconsistencies?    

And yet, in like mode, how are we to know what is the truth in our respective faiths, when so many amongst us who claim to be Christians believe in so many different things..., some strictly holding that those that do not agree with them in considering a particular denominational dogma, or find with them certain particular limitations as to what "are" and what "are not" considered the Scriptures, are completely "out of the way?"  How are we to know the Truth of anything?

These thought provoking ruminations were, too, the same questions Isaiah was asking of all of us, some of which we reexamined last month, while pointing out that no one of us should be entirely too comfortable with the teachings of their families or their religious cultures, as historically, none of these proved fail-safe. 

Jesus Christ taught, as did Isaiah and all the rest of His Prophets, that there is a way to know the Truth for sure, but it won't be found in the vain chantings of sacred traditions.... nor blind repetition of any sort that does not actively engage the mind and heart of the user. 

In fact, the Lord calls us for what is a vivid and eidetic contest, a form of an ongoing trial between the notions of Good verses evil in everything that is about us.  It is given to us to judge these matters before us, not dodge the issue or claim ourselves excused from the battle.  But it is to be done on His Playing Field and by His Rules. Moreover, the metric of man cannot be used to measure God.  Only God Himself, or that which is of God, can be that source of measure. Indeed, we are to bring our works into the Light, letting the Light pronounce its wisdom upon the matter.

With that said, let's now consider that when in a darkened room, it is difficult to see before us unless we grasp a light and use it to illuminate our immediate surroundings.  But note this, we don't turn the light on only then to stupidly close our eyes believing the light is sufficient to give us vision all by itself.

Let's jump to the heart of the matter....Many of us, though believing in God, have yet to make the salient and clear connection that the reason we do find ourselves believing in Him is that He is Good..., All Good.  Everything that comes from His Hand is, likewise and necessarily, Good as well.  There is nothing that is Good that is not from Him.  He is the author or all Goodness.  There is no other source.

Similarly in everything around us, we need the Lord's Light to cast it's brightness and focus upon the matter before us so as to see what is and what isn't really there, what is Good and what is evil; yet we don't then close our minds in the process and still expect understanding.... 

Or, do we?

What's important to remind ourselves is that we must be a part of the equation, part of the mechanics of the machinery that brings about the result of us knowing something.  We cannot close our minds and thereafter remain aloof from the process.  Indeed, if we do, then our faith is vain.

To wit, let's jump to the heart of the matter....Many of us, though believing in God, have yet to make the salient and clear connection that the reason we do find ourselves believing in Him is that He is Good..., All Good.  Everything that comes from His Hand is, likewise and necessarily, Good as well.  There is nothing that is Good that is not from Him.  He is the author of all Goodness.  There is no other source.

That means, that anything that we are capable of experiencing that is Good, or feels of Goodness to us, must critically come from Him.... no other...., not happenstance, not chance, not anything nor anyone but Him.   

  Goodness is real, though at times difficult to analyze or probe to understand its constituent parts.  True, it has remained somewhat elusive to us, possibly because nobody has ever really directed us to the accounting of such experiences in our daily life.

Nevertheless, Goodness can be felt, witnessed and experienced. Moreover, it is an Eternal Attribute and fundamental quality of God Himself. In fact, our ability to experience it, to mercifully feel the Spiritual Influence of Goodness, is but part of the Grace God extends to us. 

Indeed, instead of being left to just imagine what He's like, God blesses us with the ability to be aware of His Goodness..., to immediately experience it, like breathing in and breathing out..., so that we may be aware of who Our Father really is.  And our awareness of this Primordial Attribute is what allows us to love Him, to trust and obey Him as a child would of his Parent. 

Only from these intimacies can we grow more sure of and committed to His Ways.  Only then do we become confident and secure in emulating His Character, understanding Him and His Reasons for Promise while they unfold to us under His Tutelage.  It is by reason of this process of initiation that we come to know of His Goodness, to the extent that we find comfort and invitation to be in His Spiritual Company.  Indeed, His Goodness is His children's basis and reason for wanting to be near Him.  Surely, if He were not "Good," we would want nothing to do with Him.  And as our attraction grows more familiar and firm, it succors us until there is nothing more joyful nor more compelling then to want to be in His Presence, the Presence of Living Goodness.  

It follows, then, that one cannot profess faith in Jesus Christ without the deeper acknowledgment of His Goodness.  We cannot separate "Goodness" from "Christ."  They are "One," as He is One with the Father.  Indeed, Goodness and Eternal are His Name.  Similarly, you cannot hate your brother and claim a faith in Christ; true faith in Christ would mutually exclude such a possibility.  It follows then that if we, perchance, willingly deny the influence of Goodness at any one time, we directly deny His Grace within our lives.

Most importantly, only because of this God-given connection, is the experience and witness of His Goodness made possible. Our ability to witness and receive His Influence of Goodness is solely due to His Veritable Seed within us, allowing us the ability to resonate in His Harmony----feeling Goodness when Goodness is around and responding to the influence of Goodness when it sounds, recognizing the pattern of the melody when it resonates sympathetically in our hearts.

Thus, our belief in Christ has everything to do with our understanding of Goodness, so much so that the study and commitment to Goodness is that which is quintessentially important in the building of our faith.

Since Goodness is an Eternal Attribute, we have by ourselves no means of approaching an understanding of it, no mortal means of weighing or measuring it.  Such a wonderfully ascending capacity must be given to us by another, one of Eternal Origin, even God Himself.  For by mortality, such a thing of Light cannot be wrought or evolve.

Indeed, in order for His children to recognize Him, there must be some kind of semblance of Him within His children, a common thread of kinship which can be understood, a part of Him that is within us capable of recognizing our Creator; something that points us in the direction from whence we came and from what we have arisen and "are."  This must be a Heavenly derived capacity, a resemblance or template that is so akin to the parent, so perfectly replicated in the child, that the connection to the Heavenly Loadstone becomes obvious and second nature...., making our understanding shared.

So enabled by His Everlasting Atonement, this portion of His Spirit given to each of us as we came into this world is His Seed-Pattern within us, the means by which we may know our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.  This is the identifying mark within us that makes us of His Family..., that is, if we choose to honor it!  

Most importantly, only because of this God-given connection, is the experience and witness of His Goodness made possible. Our ability to witness and receive His Influence of Goodness is solely due to His Veritable Seed within us, allowing us the ability to resonate in His Harmony----feeling Goodness when Goodness is around and responding to the influence of Goodness when it sounds, recognizing the pattern of the melody when it resonates sympathetically in our hearts. 

Again, from this endowed connection is derived the ability that the Father gives His children so that they can spiritually come to know who He really is, and recognize Him as their true and Goodly Father, the Father of Lights. 

This portion of His Spirit has been called many names, including, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the Name of Jesus Christ, His "Name" within us, His Word within us, the Pattern of Christ, the Template of God, the Seed of Goodness, the Heavenly Seed-Pattern, Heaven's Proxy within us, the Kingdom of Heaven within us, the Spirit of Goodness, the Seed of God, the Light of Heaven, the Seed of the Father of Lights, the Light of Eternal Mind, the Light of God within man, His Will and Law within us, the Light of Conscience, the Seat of Conscience, the Seat of Morality within man, etc.  These are all one and the same denominations for the same thing, namely, that portion of the Father and Son given to us, the very means of which was prepared (from sacrifice) from the foundation of the earth.  It is through this portion of gifted Spiritual Kinship that we hold that the Holy Ghost testifies and communicates with us.

But of all the labels given above, it is our Conscience that we can perhaps most readily indentify. It is our Conscience with which we have the most common ground and shared experience, generally witnessed as an admonishing intelligence that often becomes obvious to us when we do something wrong.  Unfortunately, most of us don't realize that our Conscience is only the doorway to a greater more powerful intimacy with His Spirit.  Entering through that doorway is what the Gospel of Christ is all about.  Still, many Judeo-Christians remain without the door, not knowing that they've been duly invited to step within. 

Moreover, I believe that not only is the Blessed Seed-Pattern meaningful to us personally, it is quintessential and fundamental to all of the physical creation.  It is the "binding tie", being the basic Law of Heaven which threads itself within and through everything we see (all matter) and even everything that we don't see (all energy).  In fact, it is the Spirit of Christ which not only enables the connections between our spirit and Heaven, but too is the hidden "life-force" which envelopes the immediacy of our physical bodies.

Only this specifically prescribed method of Heaven will unlock the door of Spiritual Increase within out lives.  We cannot force the door by any other means.  Try as we might, no other activity, no matter how much we feel deserving of it, will bring to pass the Seed-Pattern's activity.  Herein, the self-excluding principles of Heaven become known to us.  If we don't repent and come unto Jesus, then the Kingdom of Heaven remains closed to our lives and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Yet, this portion of His Spirit is appointed to only fully awaken within us when we humbly, sorrowfully and sincerely repent of our sins, honestly acknowledging the ongoing battle over evil in our personal histories and ongoing lives, and covenant thereafter to come unto the Goodness of the Father.  If, and when, our affections are directed elsewhere, then the Seed of Goodness slumbers on indefinitely, its powerful influence being held in abeyance.  It is only awakened and its growth sustained when our affections turn wholly to the Goodness of God.

To be sure, the power of God begins to unfold within us to the degree that we are willing to repent, and thus seek to gather back the children we used to be..., i.e., they who are witness to the records of our lives.  To the degree that we are willing to allow such restoration of our memories and come unto His Light (which Light you'll remember has been seeded and endowed within the children we used to be), the signs and powers of God will be made known to us.  To the degree that we are inviting our lives to be seen and judged by His Light and further allow the refinement of His Admonishments to have sway within us, His Work will begin to be shown forth within our lives. 

Only this specifically prescribed method of Heaven will unlock the door of Spiritual Increase within our lives.  We cannot force the door by any other means.  Try as we might, no other activity, no matter how much we feel deserving of it, will bring to pass the Seed-Pattern's awakening.  Herein, the self-excluding principles of Heaven become known to us.  If we don't repent and come unto Jesus, then the Kingdom of Heaven and its blessings remains closed to our lives..., and we have no one to blame but ourselves. 

Only when we faithfully repent of our sins, and become as a little child, turning to honor, embrace and believe on His Name within us, will the powers of the Kingdom of Heaven open for our blessing. Only then will the Seed of Christ begin its Sacred Anointing, its mysterious work to unfold and grow within us, even in saving us from our sins and making us into the Image of God. These are the specific means whereby His Glorifying Image gains presence and immediacy within us, and wherein His Name becomes Glorified. 

Thus it is that "repentance" and "Faith on His Name," even the "Name of Jesus Christ," is the sole "signal" by which "permission" is given to the Seed of God to awaken and begin its anointed work.  Interestingly, it is also the means whereby the condition of our free-will is satisfied.  All of this is why it is said that the way to Heaven is only through and by the blood of Jesus Christ, and that He and He alone is our Savior.  No other means or method will be given, because no other means or method has been provided from the foundation of the world.

Accordingly, It is to God's Goodness and that portion of His Goodness so amplified by His Name within us, that we owe our allegiance.  And hence as commanded, it is our Heavenly Father in the Name of Jesus Christ whom we serve, and serve no other.  His Name within us, His Goodness, becomes the faithful target of our affections because it more accurately defines the Lord Himself and our connection to Him with His Father. 

So we may learn to understand that just as there is physical evidence of parentage in us from the DNA sequences encapsulated within chromosomes passed down from our respected genealogies, so is there a spiritual substance..., a "Seed," a portion of His Spirit in proxy form within us as well..., that too originated from the Father, having the potential of Heavenly Attributes of the Father and the Son within us. 

However, unlike DNA which is given to automatically unfold and configure our physicality, the Spiritual Code of Heaven must be initiated or "switched-on" by us, directly triggered by our willingness to repent from our sins and come unto His Light.  Only then will Heaven's Powers be directed to unfold its respected Spiritual Influence.  Again, those that personally and willingly choose otherwise, personally and willingly choose to exclude themselves from His Kingdom.

Now when we see through His Eyes, and through His Prescriptive Lenses which brings things into Heavenly Focus, we are moved to act and respond as He would Act, feel as He would Feel, .... Like a breath of fresh air, we are moved by the expression of Truth now resonating from within us to execute justice and mercy just as He would..., for we are know beginning to act in His Image and Authority, becoming increasingly more like Him.  The more we love His Goodness and practice its ways, the greater power we have to see Him and to discern what is familiar within His Work before us.

By following these prescriptions, we will show forth His "Exceeding Increase" until the unfolding is complete....just as we learned happened and is promised from the "Prayer of Jabez."   But only by these Heavenly given means will this increase be manifested.... No other. (Please see The Winds of Forgiveness for a more thorough and enlightening threaded interpretations of the Prayer of Jabez, Solomon's Prayer, and the Lord's Prayer.)

As His Light rises and gains prominence within us, which is in direct consequence of the Seed's unfolding its respected influence, our affinity and attraction towards Goodness summarily increases.  That's generally the first sign that the anointing has quietly begun.  Our sensitivity to its Goodly presence in turn grows larger.  And, our recognition and discernment of its resonations becomes more familiar, more immediate.  Indeed, with His Mantle growing more upon us, we begin to note and celebrate the Goodness of and from His Hand that we see and witness all around us. 

Therefore, by becoming more attuned to the many manifestations of His Goodness, we learn to recognize more of its wonderful subtleties and wonders.  Subsequently becoming more attracted to Goodness and thoroughly more engaged by its "Life," we find ourselves more eager and willing to imitate its wise patterning.  In the process of such affectionate obedience, we are changed..., over time becoming more kind, more loving, more understanding, more after the Way of the Pattern of God now directing us from within our hearts.

Now when we see through His Eyes, and through His Prescriptive Lenses which brings things into Heavenly Focus, we are moved to act and respond as He would Act, feel as He would Feel, .... Like a breath of fresh air, we are moved by the expression of Truth now resonating from within us to execute justice and mercy just as He would..., for we are now beginning to act in His Image and Authority, becoming increasingly more like Him.  The more we love His Goodness and practice His Ways, the greater power we have to identify all His Nuances, so as to then more accurately discern what is familiar about His Work before us.  Quite simply, the more familiar we become with the Character of His Goodness, the more we recognize the Work of His Hand.

So let us ask the question again.... How is it that we would recognize Him, or find the words we are reading to be of His Pattern?  How are we to know when some things are from God, and others aren't? 

Why, how else but by the presence of His Spirit of Goodness that we've since invited, allowed and given esteemed presence within us.  The Lord has given each of us the capacity to hear and recognize His Voice.  Yet such a prerequisite of His Gift only proves useful to us if we then obediently serve the Master's Voice, which in turn catalyzes further unfolding and growth of the Blessed Seed-pattern.  Otherwise, we will remain blind to His Influences, having not recognized the Master's Voice whom we have not served.

It comes down to this:  There is no other way by which Goodness could come to us but by the resonations from His Seed-Pattern, His Name, within us.  Because of the Goodness that resonates from His Word and Instruction in all its forms, and in turn resonates the common and esteemed chord within us, we can be sure of the source and direction we follow.  If we abide His Way, we are given further capacities to recognize His Truth from wherever it may be found. 

Hence, if we were to come across the Scriptures without possibly knowing what they were, we could still determine that they are True just upon their reading.  No one need tell us.  Indeed, simply because of the resonating Goodness emanating from their Source to our hearts, we could know for ourselves that they must be of Him.  Such Goodness could not be from any other.  The confirmation from the Pattern of His Spirit within us would resonate after the esteemed Pattern of its Father. 

Such abiding experience would assure us without question.  No other Voice speaks the same language nor has the same power of influence.  No other Name is given from Heaven.  No other Voice should be so exalted.

And to this "finding of faith," the Holy Ghost will then appropriately and respectively testify within us, being the third witness of Heaven, further revealing that what we hold true is indeed of the Father, edifying and strengthening the present thread of knowledge and understanding by declaring how it is woven into the larger tapestry of God within our lives, showing us how it "fits," while integrating this knowledge with all other Truth that we've discovered.

In fact, without these measures given from Him being actively a part of our conscious reflections, nothing would be clear to us.  We could never be sure if the words we were reading were from Him or some clever counterfeit.  We would not, nor could not, know of His Goodness.

I submit that only those that have used the opportunity of this Light and specifically exercise this ability of discernment would be able to personally recognize His Word, wheresoever it may be found.., not relying on others to dictate for them as to what is and what is not of the Lord.  Accordingly, only those so prepared would have been able to recognize Him in His Ministry. 

I submit that only those that use the opportunity of His Light given to us, and specifically exercise this ability of discernment, would be able to personally recognize His Word wheresoever it may be found.., not relying on others to dictate for them as to what is and what is not of the Lord.  Accordingly, only those so prepared would have been able to recognize Him when He came in His Mortal Ministry. 

All others would have behaved blindly as the ignorant mob, giving credence to whatsoever was in the wind of popularity or the circus of political correctness of the time. Although perhaps temporarily impressed with signs and wonders, these could not know with any certainty if anything was or was not from their God.  Nor would they have been capable of recognizing Him in their presence, since their personal capacities to know and give place to His Seed Pattern were likely unpracticed, and His Word within them had never been exercised or esteemed.

For these, the powers of the sacred Seed-Pattern of Christ remained hidden and undeveloped.  Having taken no joy or comfort in receiving the gift, they proved unworthy of it blessings and powers of increase.  Because the Light made them feel uncomfortable, they would rather the darkness so that their deeds would not be reproved. Subsequently, they relegated His Name to a place of dishonor, sequestered His Influence to a condition of disrepute and inactivity within them. 

And so it will come to pass that those of us who are of similar ilk, who choose to render the Pattern of Christ untenable and of little value, having not used or properly exercise His Name within ourselves (meaning: that portion of His Increase given first to bless us), will be taken from.  To be sure, that portion of His Spirit which we disinherited from ourselves shall be taken from us and given instead to them that listened to God and allowed the "Seed" to have place.  Accordingly, it was written:

KJV Luke 8:18 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

I don't think it could be made any clearer.  Here we are told that those that "hath" actually possess and practice an ongoing immediacy with His Seed-Pattern.  These lovingly follow the ways of Goodness, even the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for they are one and the same.  Those that "hath not" are those that have refused the Light within them which even though "he seemeth to have," counted its Goodness dross and of no effect, and therefore never righteously possessed the gift given to him in the first place.  Accordingly, any portion of His Light once given will be taken from them and instead given to those who knew better to esteem the sacred gift, proving more willing to listen to His Voice within them, and more respectful of the Light's Abiding Influence.

Isaiah speaks again of these that delusionally believe that they are "believers" but in reality are not, though they make every pretense of being "spiritual" but in fact are not.  They seek after the show of "religion" or "spirituality" but fail to allow His Voice to resonate within their hearts.  They assert that they have found God, but nonetheless deny the power of His Word, failing to reverence the Name within them, that portion of His Goodness which seeks to remake them after His Image:

 

Isaiah 65:1-2 KJV Isaiah 65:1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name. 2 I I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;

 

3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick; 4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels; 5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.

So we see that our Faith in Jesus Christ is and must be synonymous with Faith in His Goodness.  And without this vital and critical understanding, then our faith remains vain, superficial and never actuated.  If we imagine that we can have faith in Christ while deny our willingness and determination to "be Good," then we are sadly mistaken.  Without the sincerity of wanting to be Good, as the Father is Good, then we're just what the Lord says we are previously quoted from Isaiah, namely, a "smoke in His nose."

Furthermore, in Mathematics when variables are not just "equal" but "identical," it is expressed thusly:  x º y (three parallel lines, as in an "underlined equal sign" equating the two variables as an identity, which is a step above equality).  So it is that Jesus Christ º Goodness º Father.  We cannot but help to see, then, that faith in the one must be identical to faith in other two.  It is inescapable.... 

Witness again:

KJV John 14:8-14 8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Here again, the Lord affirms of the reality of the cascading heritage of the Seed-Pattern from His Father, and the means by which He extends and Glorifies Himself.  That is, as His Father's Seed is within Jesus Himself, so does the Seed of Christ within us contain that same previous influence and measure of full Heavenly potential from His Father as well..., so that He is within us as His Father is within Him.  Again, His children inherit those same Heavenly attributes from their parents Heavenly Genealogy.

And with that Living Pattern of Heaven actuated within us, we may then, because of the Atonement which secures and subsumes that Pattern, ascend to do His Will..., and asking in His Name, He will do it, "that the Father may be glorified in the Son," and as is given elsewhere, "that the Son may be glorified within us."  But only according to His Pattern, according to the Law of His Name within us.

When finally understood, all of this is really quite straight forward, but disappointingly and for some reason very little of these beautiful fundamentals can be heard today from within the Christian Church.  As Isaiah has repeatedly warned, we have lost our way....

So where does each of us stand today?  Are we those that have accepted and received His Name within us?  Or, are we those that only "seemeth to have" but in reality choose otherwise, counting His Goodness as dross, deferring such reception while believing that these things just can't be true..., reasoning that, "Otherwise somebody would have told us!" and, "The whole Church, just can't be wrong!" 

Yet let us recall, pretty 'near the whole Jewish Nation was wrong 2000 years ago about Christ....  Even when He was in their very presence and performed miracles before their eyes, they had not the capacity actuated within themselves to see Him and receive Him as their Lord.  Though they thought they were Israel's masters and protectors of the Mosaic Law, they had little appetite for newer revelation, and could not be prevailed upon to even consider the Source before them.  Instead, as quoted earlier in Isaiah, they scoffed at Christ and said derisively,  ..."Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou." 

What makes us think we're any different today..., except we may embrace and find joy in the things written above?
