We question ourselves; as the world turns so my thoughts confound me!
A question that can easily distract the reality that surrounds any of us as we try to search for the meaning of life. No two people will have the same vision of circumstances which confront you or me. Of course, there are similarities we find ourselves with others, but the actual outcome will always be personal to each one’s needs.
Just like finger-prints or DNA are exclusive for each human being, so the deep conscience of individuals is our own personal dossier tucked under the cover of our deepest privacy. There should never be an opening of all our closeted thoughts that could become an invitation for an approach upon our deepest held secrets about us.
If one takes time to analyze their own personality they may be scandalized at what has laid hidden under the cover of embarrassment and maybe shame. In ministry we have one exercise called the “healing of memories” wherein people can discover elements of hatred, jealousy, revenge, and unforgiveness have been covered over with the denial of ownership. During the session many may find that some of these or others have been burning a hole within their own organs and until now could not find release causing untold maladies without a proper diagnosis leaving the hole a chance to grow.
Who am I can become a parallel to what I have become. We are able to enroll in self-help courses that might have a lasting effect on our personal outlook on life’s challenges, but without a continued effort to use the positive approaches the course taught we may find ourselves in a dark corner without the ability to move forward.
There is a negative extreme that always entices the weakest of our humanity by convincing those who choose to let others control their minds and become their guide will easily gain the will of those who give up on the freedom to be their own leaders.
Not trying to repeat an issue that philosophical minded entities want to lure free people into their type of leadership we must reiterate the disaster that is ensuing within our nation. Carl Marx envisioned a way to make the common person controlled by the government and it all began with socialism. How easy for a governing adherence to promise enough money for all to live on without the bickering back and forth between neighbors. Everyone will have all they need and peace will become the rule. That is socialism which really is communism. Once we adopt their style of living according to everyone sharing the same philosophy it follows the dream of Carl Marx; Marxism!
The question of who I am or what I am can be answered with a carte-blanche to join their program. As far as holding on to the Bill of Rights and all the many amendments to the Constitution of the United States will not be a question. It and the many documents of a free society will no longer be valid. Say goodby to our Flag, our government where free elections will no longer exist. If we do not fight for the freedoms we still have now, the Marxist regime will become our battle cry.
