    I woke up in Seattle this morning with this verse in mind from Matthew 10:

    8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
    9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
    10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.


    In particular, I was thinking about this part: freely ye have received, freely give

    These are marching orders from the Lord Jesus Christ so let me share something that I think helped a lot. It is the practical application of this verse which one of the Epik staff brought up yesterday in the context of their own recent breakthrough:

    Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you - Matthew 7:7

    A lot of people interpret this to mean some kind of Santa Claus relationship where you pray for a new car and you get a new car, or to pick a lucky number in the lottery. I don't believe it works like that. The gifts of God are not typically in the form of on-demand provisioning as some would teach.

    My conclusion is that this gifting has more to do with spiritual attributes.

    Looking back, in August 2018, I asked the Lord for 2 things:

    1. The capacity to love everyone and judge nobody.

    2. A servant's heart, i.e. to not feel put upon when people ask me to do "little things"

    While I am a work in progress, I do believe those petitions are in the process of being granted and that it equipped me better to do what I am doing now.

    Around the same time, I felt led to begin praying daily/continuously for 3 things: Wisdom, Knowledge and Providence. I believe those 3 petitions have also been granted, through again, I am a work in progress.

    Most recently, I felt led to pray for 3 more things: Faith, Courage and Humility. Here again, a work in progress, but I believe these too are manifesting.

    So, whatever your calling is, and whatever your spiritual practice is, I suggest give some thought to the character attributes you think you need to develop to fulfill that calling, and expect those of yourself.

    Regardless, of your faith (or non-faith), map your purpose and destiny to the character and personality attributes that you think are required to achieve it both personally and professionally.

    Good sharing, Rob

    In my opinion, the main reason why it's very difficult for people to love everyone surrounding just because our society is more or less ruled by fear.

    The Mandela effect hit me hard and it just like a wake up call telling me that there is a higher purpose of our existence. I try to love everyone surrounding me since then.:xf.wink:

    The Upanishad says "From joy we have come, for joy we live, and in that sacred joy,one day, we shall melt again." These above words were said in the context of meditation, and following eternal principles which can actively calm our lives and make one joyful within.The birds, the animals don't question their existence, they strive to live joyfully, and perish, on the other hand, we look for supremacy, and eternity, which is again'st the true principles of nature. Everything we are, or we create, is just a byproduct of original creation itself and is not a true creation at all. Thus, it is minuscule, and goes back, and merges with to the original creator : into the soil. That's just an antidote for stress, anxiety, and worry which comes in the way of realizing ones true calling.IMO.

    Exactly right.

    There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear - 1 John 4:18

    I have seen it. Forget fear.

    As for Mandela effect, I won't go down that rabbit hole but the God of the universe is outside of space and time. I know that for sure.

    Spirituality Makes u Learn there are Many versions :

    Version :
    ALEXANDER " THE GREAT " who believed that war is ultimate way and conquered the whole world and been great.

    Version :
    ALEXANDER " THE IDIOT " who believed war is the ultimate way, Disturbed civilizations, Committed genocides, Massacred every one he don't even know or have real conflict with.

    To this day his ridiculous achievements are thought in school books with honor.
    As if one should follow to succeed in what ever they wish to be.. with out knowing the ends taste bad.

    Digital world of Business too are doing their bit of Contribution in the name of Talent , Pride, Competition, Company Achievements , Targets and Statistical achievements. Be it in the form of violent video games or in some other manner. Kids Grow to be Elders and any way every one have to take the Ultimate Call.

    True that -- he was a destroyer and died young.

    More here on A the G:

    https://www.gotquestions.org/Alexander-the-Great.html

    Secular history is full of tyrants and megalomaniacs.

    World-dictator Nimrod built the Tower of Babel for reasons you can look into if you don't know. The non-canonical book of Jasher says that it was Esau who chopped off Nimrod's head. Another one bite's the dust.

    The point is that wars and tyrants don't exactly catch an all-knowing, all-seeing God who is outside of space and time by surprise. History celebrates some and vilifies others.

    You have to admit though that Hannibal taking elephants through the Alps in 218 BC is pretty bad-ass.

    For Reasons Un necessary, I really lost interest in Books few years ago.
    Because of you probably i'll start collecting and reading them in the future once again. Don't know if it is important to read so many books. But surely POVs of interesting people are thought provoking.

    I have started about 5 businesses in my life. one thing i noticed with everyone of my biz and even my hobbies or passions. they all needed a domain name. i would say 20% of the names I own are future dream projects. like ordersushi.com Ive always wanted to build a grubhub that only focused on sushi...sushi is the same word in almost every language and its a $22bn industry annually in the US...i just want to serve 10% of that. but really love the domain space...i would consider it a stand alone passion.

    Interesting concept.

    You might be familiar with the term "Ghost restaurant". They are restaurants that have no tables. They just centrally process orders. Sushi made fresh centrally would likely taste better and cost no more than what is currently happening where a high end itamae (sushi chef) waits around for the next order. There would probably be less waste versus grocery sushi or other pre-made sushi.

    Primer here on Ghost restaurants in case not familiar:

    havent seen a ghost resturant but seen places that process 90% of their biz using online food delivery services...they have someone with 5 tabelts in front of them with orders coming in...they are shocked when someone actually sits down and orders.

    Yes, exactly. There are now ghost kitchens that prepare food for dozens of online-only restaurants.

    The ghost restaurants are generally outside of the urban core, typically close to a major traffic artery, and with cheaper space than the "main street" restaurant with higher overheard. This trend is actually taking a toll on the traditional restaurant model who are getting squeezed by the delivery platforms.

    Ghost restaurants are adding AI for dynamically matching cheap fresh but perishable ingredients with a smart menu app that lets patrons order directly from the ghost kitchen providing higher margin for the restaurant and greater value for the patron with end-to-end control of the supply chain.

    Check this:

    https://thespoon.tech/doordash-laun...tchen-facility-for-to-go-restaurant-concepts/

    The delivery companies are going to vertically integrate the supply chain. This is a bit like when NetFlix started producing their own content.

    Quick thought of the day: Scarcity is an illusion.

    - You have enough time.
    - You will have enough money.

    Too many people are fighting over pennies and nickels rather than making dollars and sharing dollars.

    Co-create Abundance.

    Entire Solar System is Heating up since Millions of years and that is how life on Planet earth is able to be surviving because of sun.
    But Earths Ozone is tearing up due to extreme Industrial production of green house gases and allowing too dangerous heat of the sun is supposed to be understood as Global warming. It is not false just because a part of Nebraska is fine. God Loving also Exists.

    I like the way you think. You might appreciate this idea:

    https://www.namepros.com/threads/domainer-dojo-brand-name-needed.1162798

    It is the international version of your concept.

    And yes, I think anthropogenic warming is nonsense. @Ategy.com and I will agree to disagree there.

    A real core question, I will try to answer it here in one sentence (ok, including 2 footnotes):

    Regarding my case, I started to realize that my calling in domaining is to set a globally visible, digital statement against the illuminati * in form of a (specific) domain name ** by demonstratively offering it worldwide for sale - through the world wide web in front of the(ir symbolic) luciferian "all seeing (one) eye" which they have placed on the(ir US) one dollar bill and which they have placed in many ways in countless logos / movies and buildings etc. all around the worlddd

    * to all who are not sure who is meant: meant is this "final / mysterious" secret society that is trying to install a new world order (out of a (future, deliberately induced global) chaos) that will then earthly be ruled by the oneeyed antichrist = dajjal (may he be cursed) but interdimensionally in fact by the devil (may he be cursed) himself

    ** which is also known as the killuminati domain name as it is, for those who are recognizing its untoppable structure, the highest, therefore the most valuable and therefore the most expensive domain name of all time because it exists symbolically over the top of their symbolical pyramid which means even they (illuminati) can't top ittt

    Some folks here have plenty of awareness and understanding of what JFK referred to as a "ruthless conspiracy". I was on to it late in his presidency.



    In fact, that ruthless conspiracy has been around for thousands of years. The question is what do about it.

    Option 1: idle in fear or just passively acknowledge that the world is going to hell in a handbasket but are not able to imagine that they can do something about it.

    Option 2: refuse to be governed by fear or anxiety, empower others to be sovereign, and decentralize control while equipping people to ask questions and seek answers.

    I choose option 2 but I know many choose option 1.

    A false dilemma is a type of informal fallacy in which something is falsely claimed to be an "either/or" situation, when in fact there is at least one additional option.

    There are many additional options. One being that most of the conspiracy theory stuff itself is nonsense.

    Thanks Brad. Agree to disagree. The point is about not being in fear. So, we probably agree there. You think it is nonsense. I think it is not nonsense but that it doesn't matter. Subtle distinction.

    I am also just pointing out limiting options like that is simply a logical fallacy.
    Most situations have far more than 2 potential options or outcomes.

    There are other options like being indifferent. Having no strong stance or belief in something.

    I am all for trying to change what is broken, but at the same time it is highly unlikely that the majority of people can even agree on what is broken. :)

    I was specifically addressing someone with whom I have had private conversations and for which I have additional context. I am addressing the issue of fear-mongering, which is something he did in another thread and which I called out there as well.

    As context, Epik is registrar for sites like Infowars.com. Some people may be led to assume that if you are right about the facts (e.g. Bohemian Grove involves weird rituals to Moloch) that you might also be right about the call to action. Of course someone can be wrong on both about the fact and the call to action.

    That said, yes, you can absolutely choose to be indifferent -- you would not be the first or the last. I myself find I spend less and less time watching news about politicians. Why? Because I am increasingly indifferent to them. Some would say that is naive, but I just choose to allocate my time differently.

    Alternative thought of the day......

    “To be an atheist is a realistic aspiration, and a brave and splendid one. You can be an atheist who is happy, balanced, moral, and intellectually fulfilled.”

    So what's your calling? O_o

    it seems they killed JFK because he wanted to abolish the FED.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Reserve_Bank_of_New_York


    It is interesting to see that even Trump has no power over the FED.
    He is fighting everybody, but against the FED even Trump is powerless.
