Hello world. The following was written 8/28/2017.
I find myself looking at a number of things this morning. One would be the beliefs we hold which have us believing as we do. Another would be the lack of awareness one has for what is right in front of them. The last would be the belief in lack. How a Being could starve to death when they are surrounded by the bounty of God.
This morning my Husband, Alex, was reading a blog about an entire family dying of starvation. As he took in what was being shared he asked me a question. Something along the lines of, Is lack real? Can someone actually die from lack? He then explained what he had been reading and why those questions and thoughts were coming to him. He read about an entire family dying of starvation. This prompted the questions from Alex of, is lack real? If lack is not real, then how could they die from a lack of food?
As I contemplate these questions I am reminded of an understanding which had come to me as a teenager. At age fourteen I was contemplating the attachments those around me had to money and all things material. At the time I myself was asking God in my mind why I was being told I had to go out, find a job and get money to pay for things like food, shelter, and to simply survive?
To me it made no sense money would be needed for those things. When I would walk to school I could see a bounty of food around me waiting to be harvested. Wild onions, carrots, garlic, regimes, flowers, nuts, fruits, lettuce, spinach and so much more. Fresh herbs were all around me. Materials for building shelters were there waiting to be utilized. Yet no one seemed to see these things which were right in front of them.
Last month we had the Census Bureau come do a survey. The questions they were asking were psychologically subversive in nature. Each was gauged to have one believing they needed to prepare for an imagined catastrophe which has not happened. One needed to be afraid they would not have enough and what they have may be taken from them. They asked leading questions about whether we are preppers and if we have supplies stored. How much do we have and do we have access to more? Seriously!? What do they need this kind of information for? The way it comes across is a way to target those who have taken the steps to be self sustaining in time of trouble and chaos.
