High Flyer or Slow Rider?
I can tell by your face and the shape of your eyes,
if you circled for yourself
or spread far and wide
to reach high
Did you ride the divide, to collect gifts
and the money that goes with?
It’s an easy way to travel. but at the end of the day, a gamble. Because you flew you high, your kin ends up flying wide. not as punishment, but by birth defect. Now skinny and tall, your house of cards will fall. Restart.
Now, if you circled the stairs at a snail’s pace,
spreading far and wide, you pulled others in because you decided not to sin.
Minds now tall
You and your kin win
It was always all about love.
and the lessons Y
Are you a high flyer or a slow rider?
Isaiah 54, NIV
2“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. 3For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.
High Flyer or Slow Rider? Human or God? A Full Mind or Narrow Bind?
Did you erect the middle stake or spread your tent cloth wide as you took a slow ride?
Being a hue-man is not so bad. Having color (human) is better than being black and white (the living dead). I prefer a whole mind, with full use of my brain, and my power restored. A God or A Goddess, to be precise, capable of accomplishing what many find unimaginable—creating something new, colorful, unseen or unheard of by many. Wouldn’t a future full of independent, creative, unique individuals who support one another, are fascinating, and add beauty and light to the universe, not poison or pain, be extraordinary!
I am demanding and cranky, but I deserve to be. Trapped in a playpen is not a plan for the mother hen. I didn’t want to be used or reduced for others to abuse. It unacceptable 100% of the time. Nobody should be diminished in a game for others’ amusement—Never sold, or traded, no bets, no arrangements.
So, I decided to whine (wine) along the way and that it was okay. It was part of my survival strategy: Weep along the way, so I feel better at the end of the day.
Who else from before came through? Where are you?
Babylon, the Prostitute on the Beast
17 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters. 2 With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”
3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. 5 The name written on her forehead was a mystery: babylon the great the mother of the prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth.
6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.
When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. 7 Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come.
9 “This calls for a mind with wisdom.
The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. 10 They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while. 11 The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.
12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
15 Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. 16 The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled. 18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”
