The Power of Marriage and Divorce

As a disclaimer I am not telling people to do the following regarding Ecclesiastes, but I  got a moral theoretical and…almost (maybe) rhetorical concept regarding divorce. Now as we know Marriage is a Trinity between the spouses and God, and to symbolize that are the wedding rings that symbolize the promise between the spouses and with God. Let us acknowledge the financial and paper aspect of marriage. Right off the bat, to me that sounds self explanatory, but on taxes and on other forms national or by city (local) that can give benefits.

Should we identify marriage by what is on paper or by spirit convictions and conviction of wills? I tell you this, that marriage should be the latter.

Now with the promise of the rings in the event of a divorce, a paper divorce is not going to divorce you, because it seems to me that there is still a covenant despite what is shown on a local or national database. To me a true divorce is one of spiritual convictions. As if to say, “Return to sender” the spouses could consensually give their ring back to the spouse who originally ringed them on their wedding day, and they could do one of two things: bury their rings/drop them into the ocean or hand them over to a Church Cleric (of which I doubt they would be down for) wherein which he/she either buries them or drops them into the ocean. For this, if this is anywhere at all a must the spouses must consensually discern on the matter and seek discernment counselling from a Church Cleric.

As I began with a disclaimer, I must say that by the definition of human nature, we adapt so we can overcome. As we evolve in the physical so to must we evolve in spiritual matters, and if you want to to argue to say that there is no spiritual matter I would argue that there is, but if you are adamant then think about the emotional matters and try to adapt around that.

We must adapt not just within our external environment(s) but within our internal environment(s), and as marriage is not a bargaining entity it is indisputably an adaptive entity. In marriage we must adapt to the pair-bonding dynamics of marriage where the husband should not think about himself as well should the wife, but adapt to the new concept and adapt in accordance to the spouse. We no longer have our old mold, but we have a new mold wherein our mold grows to adapt to internal and external environments or we must match our mold to the marriage concept that surrounds the other spouse.

Well, I believe I have picked apart my disclaimer well enough. You don’t have to agree with the theory or rhetoric as it is nothing but a mere opinion as is the nature of a theory/rhetorical theory. I hope you enjoyed reading!

Joseph’s Gift

As each of us in the world are given a spiritual gift, Joseph’s gift (in my opinion) was one of the most extraordinary, the gift of prophecy. Joseph prophesied through dreams. In these dreams he had visions and he was able to understand the visions and interpret their meanings. This would be described as having the seer ability, of which in today’s time would be considered by popular norm as having a psychic ability.

Evolution of Adam and Eve

When Adam and Eve bit into the apples sin entered, and knowledge of light and dark entered into them stamping human kind. With this knowledge their eyes had opened up and they knew they were naked. Knowing that they were naked (acting upon the newly acquired knowledge) they constructed clothes from themselves out of fig leaves. This all being said we possibly could not have evolved intellectually without knowledge.

Knowledge can be used for good and bad intentions. this good and bad equates to the knowledge of light and dark.

God’s Plan, the Grand Plan

Going off of the basis that God is all knowing, then could he have known about the cause and effect of creating an enemy, Lucifer. If so, then he knew by creating Lucifer, Lucifer would invoke one of the most dangerous of thoughts, curiosity into one of his future creations humans by taking up the form of a snake and enticing that creation, a human to eat from the Tree of Knowledge stamping human – kind with sin, the knowledge of good and evil. That knowledge spun a series of events that spiraled human – kind in a world of chaos.

This would then give him a reason to flood the world and give Noah a chance to save it because of sin, and secondly to save the world from sin by sending down his son Jesus.

B.D. 02

The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness how great is that darkness!

 – Matthew 22 – 23

In my view this is to say, that in which you entertain is what you will become, and as the eyes are the windows of the soul, what we take in is what we will become. If we pay attention to things of the dark our aura/soul will be of the dark. If we were to focus our attention to faith in the lord, wisdom, enlightenment and joy then our aura/soul will be of light.

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other .

– Matthew 24

In my view this ties in with the lamp/eye bit above. As no one can serve two masters, you cannot serve the world of the dark and the world of the light at the same time. I say ‘world’ as a collective term of joy, wisdom, enlightenment, love, etc. as things of the world of light and the dark world being greed, pride, hate, sorrow, envy, pain and etc.

Aside

Do not lay up yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

– Matthew 19 – 21

In my view this is to say that what we consider as treasure be it collections of earthly desires i.e. money, movies, etc. to be treasures of earth, and those things will tie us down to earth. If we tie ourselves down to those earthly treasures, we will want to protect those treasures and thusly our security is bound to those treasures.

If our treasure is a collection of knowledge, faith, wisdom, friendships, love etc. then our treasure is a heaven bound treasure.
