  • What the Bleep?!?

  • What the "bleep" do we know? I mean, when it really comes down to it, what do we know?

    I used to think I knew alot. Perhaps I know very little. But I do know Who loves me. I do know He wants the best for me. I want to live intentionally. I want to discover the endless possibilities for altering my everyday reality.

    Perhaps our bodies respond to what we think and say about ourselves. Perhaps this affects the condition our bodies are in and how they function or fail to do so.

    Are we limited by what we believe to be true? If our beliefs changed, would it change or eliminate the limitations?

    If you'd like to look at things like this, and maybe stretch your "thinking box", click on the "What the Bleep?!?" line above... The video can be purchased from PBS if you are interested... Another "What the bleep" is coming soon to theaters - It will be called "What the Bleep?!? Down the Rabbit Hole"... Let me know what you think about this....

    The Wall

    The Wall


    I'm woven in a fantasy,
    I can't believe the things I see
    The path that I have chosen now
    has led me to a wall
    And with each passing day I feel
    a little more like something dear was lost
    It rises now before me,
    a dark and silent barrier between,
    All I am, and all that I would ever want to be
    It's just a travesty, towering,
    marking off the boundaries
    my spirit would erase
    To pass beyond is what I seek,
    I fear that I may be too weak
    And those are few who've seen it through
    to glimpse the other side,
    The promised land is waiting
    like a maiden that is soon to be a bride
    The moment is a masterpiece,
    the weight of indecision's in the air
    It's standing there,
    the symbol and the sum of all that's me
    It's just a travesty, towering, blocking out the light and blinding me
    I want to see

    Gold and diamonds cast a spell,
    it's not for me I know it well
    The treasures that I seek
    are waiting on the other side
    There's more that I can measure
    in the treasure of the love that I can find
    And though it's always been with me,
    I must tear down the Wall and let it be
    All I am, and all that I was ever meant to be, in harmony
    Shining true and smiling back at all who wait to cross
    There is no loss
    As I read these words, I am reminded of my own path, and how God so diligently and faithfully has touched my life, steadily reconciling who He made me to be with the reality I live out. Many times, the process is painful, almost unbearable. Yet, He is there, helping me to tear down the wall, holding me together, reforming my heart and life. Many times, the wall is of my own thinking and making, and is due to the deceptions and lies I have believed. The wall appears to be solid rock, and yet, it is thin as paper. Perhaps the most difficult thing to obtain is the thing one already has been given....
