Daily Prompt: Mushroom

Found some mushrooms in a beautiful Fairy Garden one evening.  Magic Mushrooms I think they call them.

I just happened to saute some button mushrooms in butter yesterday.  I cook them the same day I purchase them so they are fresh and use them in various things such as sauces, soups or even by themselves.  I like adding them to egg drop soup and pumpkin curry soup as well as to my spaghetti sauces.

After knowing supposed mushroom experts that poisoned themselves when using kinds they picked themselves, I leave it to the markets for mine.  I don’t eat mushrooms all the time nor do I eat the wide variety out there.  Sometimes I don’t eat them for years at a time til they catch my fancy again.  Depends on what I plan on cooking and if any fresh are available.

Onions, Mushroom, Zucchini, chick peas, sauteaud in butter with various Mediterranean Spices of your choice sauteed in olive oil.

Daily Prompt: Is Enlightenment a Choice?

It appears that “enlightenment” or understanding that which was not previously known has everything to do with the heart of a man.  My grandmother once told me many years ago, she does not understand why some can experience the same things as others and not be damaged or defiled but stand strong, steadfast in their very soul and not be broken while others use it as an excuse to become angry, broken people.  I used to think that some were not trying, now I don’t really know.  I do know it has to do with intent.  Intent and need is everything.  When you cry to God in your heart, He hears you.  When you put up a spiritual wall He will not enter because He can’t unless he breaks it down and God does work like that.  Jesus talked about seeking and finding, knocking and the door being answered and it is written you will find God if you fervently seek Him with your whole heart.

Know in these end times, the only people “not getting it” ain’t trying.  They are the ones with evil intent or a delusional mindset because they choose not to know the truth.  If you seek the truth you will always find it.  It’s there, it cannot be hidden.  The human mind works that way.  It hides what it wants or needs to hide depending on the condition of the soul or what works in their favor if they are selfish.  Most refuse to humble themselves to God and pray for forgiveness and salvation because they think they are too good.  They care more for their own pride than they do their own soul.  Anyone who thinks they are better than God will never know God.  God is also able to block enlightenment at His Will.

2 Corinthians 4:4

Jesus is the Light of world and there has never been more proof in this world than now.  All those who shun and mock the true God of Love that Jesus explained to us are lost.  They always seem to have the same excuse of “that’s their choice.”  They’re right.  It’s not the right choice, but like all choices, it is theirs indeed, only many in the world suffer and die because of it and that’s not OK.  You can’t pretend to be a “good” person and not love Jesus or at least “get” Him.  It’s not possible.  There are great folks who were not raised to know Jesus and that is not their fault, also they do not mock or take away from others.  I do know that the most evil in God’s world mock Christ even to this day and show all just how unenlightened they really are.  They are still killing Christians around the world and “liberal” groups are working fervently to remove all signs of God and Jesus from this world thus telling the world who they serve.

Daily Prompt: The Danger in “Believing”

The secular world has borrowed and defiled many of God’s holy words and truths.  Man is becoming famous for stealing the Words of God and pretending they are their own unique ideas to sell books or speak to the lost in our world.  If you are knowledgeable in the Word, you will not be fooled into believing the false doctrine of others.

Many times I see just the word “Believe” on a plaque or canvas and I wonder, “Believe what?”  You can believe anything but it helps to believe in the truth, always.  People of the world feel foolish or simple-minded to believe in anything as simple a concept as “God.”  They feel they are too intelligent and educated to be fooled into such a primitive belief.  This is a world-wide belief as far back as man existed and continues today for good reason.  It’s true.  Is it explainable?  Not really, but those of us who believe, know it.

Who can explain the spiritual truth of Faith?  If you don’t have it, it does not exist for you.  It is something between your heart and God and God cannot be fooled.  It has to do with genuine love inside and need to humble yourself because you love and really desire God because you need Him.  We all do need God but few get this because the world does it’s best to make you feel foolish in this desire by making you prideful and “empowered” within yourself.

Anyone that has even the slightest spiritual enlightenment or sensitivity knows that there is something more in our world than meets the eye.  Many of us have experienced it and know there is another realm to this world that cannot be seen with the eye, but can be felt in the spirit.  This is where your “good vibes” bad vibes” idea comes from and we all know this is true.  Some are completely thick-skinned or oblivious to others “feelings” towards them while others pick up on that right away.

There is that feeling of peace and serenity with prayer and meditation and the unsettled or angry feelings that come with fighting and cursing.  There are definite intents and intent is everything.  Just like someone smiling while stabbing another in the back, literally or figuratively.  Just because you are smiling does not mean you have “good vibes.”  This is what many are finding out with those who currently control our mainstream media news, entertainment and governments.

The world’s art and entertainment has long been on a slippery slope of ugliness, negativity, hypocrisy, insincerity as well as perversion and downright evil.  A society’s culture represents the society and right now it’s not good.  Most people are basically still good, still pretty down to earth and knowledgeable BUT the media currently representing all of us does not represent us fairly or accurately for the most part because it’s only there to serve the needs of the few who control it.

Believe things are going to get better and then make it so!

Daily Prompt: Unfurl the American Flag with Pride!

God bless America with all its imperfection.  After all, he who is without sin is the only one that can say a word against it without being a hypocrite.  Sadly it appears as if a certain faction in our own country is attempting to take away our history and heritage because they are “offended” all of a sudden.  There have been many offenses by many people.  If we all complained about something, what will be left or who will be left standing in this country?   A Coup d’ etat appears to be taking place because no one removes the history of a once great nation all of a sudden unless they are overthrowing it.  Something to think about.  These same people hate Trump and he wanted to make a better America.  They are trying to make him eat his words, instead they will bring the wrath of many against them and their fake causes.  Charlottesville police officers said “off the record” that they were not allowed to interfere in that protest by order of that city’s mayor.  Not sure how many are aware of what is going on right now.

 

Daily Prompt: Willy-Nilly Kaleidodesigns

Sometimes I like to play with the various Kaleidoscope effects my software offers. One just splits the image and another does the actual Kaleidoscope design effect and allows you to place it where you want it in terms of color and shape, lots of options.  The split effect they call kaleidoscope splits 4 images at a time.  There is a plan to what I do eventually but my designing does begin willy-nilly.

Daily Prompt: Carousel of Life!

I used to love the Merry-go-round as a child.  It was less violent than many of the other rides and it had animals, usually horses!
