Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

Replace old programs... daily renewing and rewiring.


Today on Facebook Olga Hermans posted a link to her latest blog post from TheChoiceDrivenLife.Com:

‎"Successful people do 'daily' what others do 'occassionally'." Mike Murdock

What a thought. The difference isn't knowing some secret, or being pre-wealthy. It isn't the right circumstance. It's not a big outbreak or breakthrough. It's just doing the right thing for long enough to see the result. Like the flywheel effect described in Good to Great. Just keep pushing the big heavy wheel and eventually little movements add up until it hits a breakthrough momentum. However if you push for awhile, get tired, then try the other way, that only produces canceled results.

Scott Allen posted today a Pixar tweet: "Go Ahead, Accept a Challenge."

My thoughts:

Challenge the things that have been staring you in the face and staring you down. Has debt, or lack of the money to do what you think you need to do been challenging your belief? Have you been wondering if God Can? If God Will? If you can receive? Or having any other thought of defeat?

Sometimes in life there are things that attempt to suffocate the Word in your heart and make it fruitless/cause it to come to no real effect.

These are the times that you lock yourself in your closet, or somewhere to pray, and you start to confess the Word and Pray until you come out with the right attitude. Your outlook is changeable by you. You control your emotions by controlling what you are saying to yourself. If you've never taken the time to ask God to show you the broken record or self dialogue that has been going on and on in the back of your mind, do it! It's quite revealing. Lies the devil sold you that you didn't even know were playing back there, many have been there so long you didn't recognize them, but they are ruling your thought life and emotions.

I liken these thoughts to base code on a computer. There are codes and programs that run all the time on most computers that you don't know are there, you can't see them running. There is no logo, icon, window or any indication that they are there. But they are slowing down your processor and gumming up your computer. Sometimes these are even harmful programs that came attached to some other program you downloaded. This is why having a computer person check you computer every so often is needful. Checking what runs at start up is important. It causes start up to be slower and constantly running code slows the computer.

The thoughts that are so base to your personality that they cause your reactions to situations and gut responses, those thoughts must be brought in line with the Word of God. Only through prayer will you be able to flush those out and meditating on The Word of God will replace them. You need a high level program to turn off and replace those other programs.

Then you need to do this daily, by daily repetition of Meditating on the Word of God, and then daily doing the tasks you are assigned by him, you can replace your unproductive thoughts, habits, and ideas, with new ones.

Also by daily getting little bits done toward projects you get the projects done. Books are written in an afternoon, it takes line by line, paragraph by paragraph.

Take time today to replace the old programs running around in your head...

Fatalism: When bad things happen

Fatalism is not the answer!

I've had no less than four or five conversations around this general topic recently, so I decided to say something about it. Although I have several friends I want to say this to, the primary audience for this speech today is me. I spent all of yesterday in a fatalistic funk. Today, I'm choosing to make a new choice.

You are not living the life you live because of fate. Period. 

God. The Stars. Fate. They did not create the hardships you face today. There were some factors outside of you that contributed, often in major ways. But you ultimately choose how you will respond from today forward, not Fate.
Fatalism: a doctrine that events are fixed in advance so that human beings are powerless to change them. Websters Fatalism is exactly the opposite of Truth. God empowers you, he does not disempower you. If you believe you are the way you are, living the life you live, because of Fate, you are believing a LIE of Satan. That lie is keeping you bound inste…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Holy Spirit > Righteousness > Peace > Joy

For the kingdom of God does not consist of food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 NET Bible

Lexicon at Bible Hub:
but righteousnessδικαιοσύνη
(dikaiosunē)1343:righteousness, justicefrom dikaiosand peaceεἰρήνη
(eirēnē)1515:of uncertain derivation, perhaps from eiró (to join): lit. or fig. peace, by impl. welfareand joyχαρὰ
(chara)5479:joy, delightfrom chairó

Righteousness: I AM, right now, regardless of failings or faults, the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Jesus in the eyes of God. I stand before my Father in right standing not because of a single thing I've done except that I accepted his Son standing in my place. When he sees me, he sees his son, in whom he is well pleased.

Peace: Eirene/Shalom: Nothing Missing. Nothing Broken. Everything Whole and Complete. This is the wellness of spirit, soul, body, mind, finances. It's an all-encompassing peace. I need not have it functioning to understand it belongs to me. I have tools I don't use in my toolbox…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…
