Beyond the Zone: God and The Spiritual Journey



On the first day God created the cow. God said, “You
must go to the field with the farmer all day long and
suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to
support the farmer. I will give you a life span of
sixty years.”

The cow said, “That’s kind of a tough life you want
me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty and
I’ll give back the other forty.”

And God agreed.

On the second day God created the dog. God said, “Sit
all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone
who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life
span of twenty years.

The dog said, “That’s too long to be barking. Give me
ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten.”

The Jazz Apple

After all the brainstorming and putting my blog together I thought to myself: “Before I get deep into this thing with barely any followers or anyone paying attention, would anyone even view a piece of my content and give it a good Siskel and Ebert?” I’m so old skool. Remember them? Phenomenal people of the and the originals of review. I want know whether good or bad. Saying my work is great or it sucks…just in general if it would even get looked at to where people would want to follow me or even purchase my future works.

On @the.jazzapple I will have so many versions of my writings demonstrated as poetry, short stories, writings from my creative stance as a playwright, YouTube videos, and more. I have a whole list but I want to keep you in suspense and anticipating the release of my blog. My writings and everything…

I (We) Must Not Hate!

People going to church this Christmas believe God is a powerful force for good in the world and he, or she, sometimes works in mysterious ways. Christians, whose faith is founded on the redemptive event of Christ’s crucifixion, can readily believe that good can grow from tragedy.

New Zealand this year has experienced a most appalling tragedy. The slaughter in March of New Zealand Muslims at prayer in two Christchurch mosques had a profound effect not just on this country but the world.

from a Google search (my “filing system to rescue me from sheer utter chaos” – thanks “Big G”)…
and by that I mean God (far more than Google)… but then perhaps I should…
