Capital and Politics: a poem about The Christ by David H. Roche

Capital and Politics

We don’t want you

 caring for others;

You're on your own ... get yours

forget the others.

I read the news but resist the views

there’s more to life

than capital and politics.

(C) 2013 David H. Roche

Coffee and Eternity with Jack and Qkjea

Jack and Qkjea are "Fire People". I created them from photographing flames and coaxing them out of the flames into the state you see them in. I really like the way they look on the white mug.

You can purchase and possess one of these mugs and share your morning meditation with Jack and Qkjea by clicking on the image below. You will be taken to my store Art From Another Dimension at Zazzle .com.    Or just click here.

Jack and Qkjea are immaterial travelers of the space time experience we think of as life and existence.   Not being dependent on the material world they know existence is not necessary for life.  The reason for the appearance of Fire People among us is to reveal this knowledge.

Wake up this morning with Jack and Qkjea.

Judgment Day

A video on the theme of moral accountability based on the concept of the last judgment as proposed by Jesus. It makes sense that people should be held accountable for the way they have affected others. Justice is something we humans understand naturally. The requirement of justice is a lot like fairness.

The New Testament, from which much Christian doctrine is derived, speaks of an end to this present state of affairs. This 'evil age' it is called. Look around you will find it easy to decide this age is evil. Our society is rife with government sponsored economic oppression. The lives of families are worth less to the politicians making laws than the fiscal health of financial institutions.

This is a usurious society. For as long as the Jews have had the Torah usury has been considered a crime.   The charging of interest on a loan was forbidden by the God of the Christians, Jews and Muslims because it was understood to be a crime against the neighbor. It's not like they pay close attention to it but it's in holy book they read from. Usury is one way in which the poor are abused by the way of this age. The bible takes the side of the poor in this issue. Unlike congress which regards the poor with contempt, God cares for the poor and has justice planned for them.

Like Marie Antoinette who truly had it coming, I would not want to be in their shoes on the day of judgment when God's justice is revealed.

Let Us Make Man: new poster art from Art From Another Dimension


  I began with triangle shapes and when a theme appeared to me I added different images  I've photographed or created from photographs.  Jack and Qkjea are filling in as Elohim.  I may add more Elohim later on.

My plan was to explore the theme of the Elohim participating together in the creation of the human race and the rest of creation which arose from the imagination of the Creator. I have only included two representations of the Elohim.  Clearly, in the bible, there are more than two Elohim.

The Elohim talked together about the impending creation of mankind. "And God (Elohim) said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion". Creation is said to have begun when God separated light from darkness.  

If that is correct creation and existence are the result of the appearance and recognition of opposites. Light and Darkness could not be more opposite.  Before there was light in which forms manifest, there was nothing but 'darkness' empty of form, void, but enclosing, incorporating the origin of all forms. The darkness may be understood as the inscrutable thought and purpose of God.

Lao Tzu wrote of this in this way; J Legge translator:  I do think Lao Tzu was on to something five hundred years BC, give or take a few.  In verse 21 he wrote:

The grandest forms of active force

From Tao come, their only source.

 Who can of Tao the nature tell?

 Our sight it flies, our touch as well.

 Eluding sight, eluding touch,

 The forms of things all in it crouch;

 Eluding touch, eluding sight,

 There are their semblances, all right.

 Profound it is, dark and obscure;

 Things' essences all there endure.

 Those essences the truth enfold

 Of what, when seen, shall then be told.

 Now it is so; 'twas so of old.

 Its name--what passes not away;

 So, in their beautiful array,

 Things form and never know decay.

 How know I that it is so with all the beauties of existing things?

 By this (nature of the Tao).

The Way of the Tao' of Lao Tzu is what translators of the New Testament into Chinese use to communicate the  divine attributes of Jesus to a Chinese audience.  This is significant because in the New Testament Jesus is described as the active agent in creating human reality.  In this correlation is clearly seen the many sided (manifold) wisdom of God.

We see imperfectly.  All, myself included, hold ideas that will collapse like a house of cards.  When the house of 'beliefs' falls, what remains as the object of faith when the dust settles is the Source of our being.  It is this Source to which faith is rightly directed.  It does not collapse because the Source transcends, infuses and undergirds all. I don't care what you call it. Elohim, Logos, Vishnu, Tao, Way, God; it makes no difference. A name does not change the essence of the Source.  It is your faith in the Source of your being that makes the difference.  The Source of being exists as the basis of all you are. Faith is the only key to the door of the Source of being. Belief and doctrine will let you down, faith will get you through.

In the gospels the faith of people praised most highly by Jesus were pagans.   The previous sentence holds a link to one such instance. This means religious formulas go out the window.  It is faith that counts in the spiritual world, because faith is where your heart is.  Being doctrinally correct was what Jesus condemned the religionists of his time for. They knew how to work the 'law of God' to their advantage. They ended up having Jesus killed to protect their religious beliefs.  You can figure it out if you have a mind to do so.

 Well anyhow I made the poster this morning.  I hope you like it.
