#SIWOPC

Mom, you’re a wonderful mother,
So gentle, yet so strong.
The many ways you show you care
Always make me feel I belong.

You’re patient when I’m foolish;
You give guidance when I ask;
It seems you can do most anything;
You’re the master of every task.

Africa Works: Disorder As Political Instrument – Book Review

This is perhaps one of the best books I read on African politics while I was in school. The authors takes a fresh and interesting approach to the instrumentalisation of power in Africa and discuss how it impacts African societies and economies. The book provides a wonderful framework with which to analyse African politics and a new paradigm. A must read for every scholar of African politics

Published in 1999

This book is organised around three important issues and related categories.

First, according to Patrick Chabal and Jean Pascal Daloz;

The African condition can be describe in terms of a unique culture and mind-set that force its people to follow a developmental trajectory which is different from that of other countries of the world that modernised first.

Secondly, they argue that:

Sub-Saharan Africa has the problem that cuts across the whole of Africa among which are corruption and ineffective institutions that affects all sectors of the society.

Thirdly, they observe that:

While African countries and institutions seem to be in a state of disorder and corruption, this situation is active and describe Africa’s unique developmental trail.

In this book Africa is seen as a continent full of crisis. They admitted that the problem of African development has a long history and has been of topical issues after Second World War. While there have been a lot of theories and recommendations abound, progress has been limited if not static.

Sub-Sahara is seen with the reputation of being the poorest region in the world. The region has declined in the rate at which they made progress during the mid-1970s when per capita incomes in Africa exceeded those in most of the developing world, including Asia.

According to World Bank report, a series of negative facts about sub-Sahara were highlighted such as income dropping lower than it was in the late 1960s with widespread of war, diseases, corruption, unemployment and its share of global trade has been shrinking thereby contributing only 2% of the world trade.

Chabal and Daloz argue that ineffective institution and corruption are the fundamental problem facing Africa. The definition of institutional effectiveness was given in terms of ideal type Weberian type bureaucracies.

In their assumption, they are of the opinion that the effectiveness of institutions is derived by organising their structure, purposes, and resources in order to provide rule based governance that is fair, rational and predictable.

To prevent institutions from the domination of interest groups, there should be a proper and well structured bureaucracy. One of the primary problem highlighted with African leaders and institutions is patrimonialism which is the widespread use or diverting public assets or resources for personal gain by officials who manage them.

There is no distinction between public and private spheres which also is one of the reason why African institutions are ineffective. This is due to the fact that African institutions are not neutral and it raises the question, what it means for a bureaucracy to be neutral and according to these scholars bureaucratic neutrality is not possible.

As Knott and Miller observed, institutions shape outcomes by creating incentives that leads to one decision or another. They also opined that the way institutions are arranged affects decision making processes separately from the people involved.

In their conclusion they said that as long as there are different institutional arrangements that leads to different results, then those institutional arrangement cannot be seen as neutral.

They also said that the institutional structure are the output of political choices of political actors. They also argue that it is pointless to maintain institutional or administrative neutrality rather the issue is who gets what from the political system.

According to Chabal and Daloz corruption in Africa is manifested and affects all sectors of the society. There is a distinction between a manifested form of corruption in Africa and western countries less corrupt which they called horizontal corruption.

Horizontal corruption involves the exchange of favours between economic and political elites. Corruption is seen as a unique phenomenon in Africa and a major cause of Africa’s economic grief.

The argument that the level of corruption in African states in typical has been contested by other observers, according to Bayart, Ellis Hibou, they are of the opinion that it is not that African states or their political system are more corrupt than others, as it is often believed.

There is no reason to say that Japan, China, India, Turkey, Russia etc. are less corrupt, but in Africa, the interaction between the practice of power, war, economic accumulation and illegal activities of different types constitute a particular political trajectory which can be fully appreciated only if it is addressed by looking back to see what has gone wrong and how it can be fixed and improved upon.

One of the features of this trajectory is the exploitation by dominant social groups, by dominant actors and other forms of domination such as the insertion of Africa in the international economy in the name of being dependence. Some examples include rents derived from diplomatic and military alliances, from the control of exports of oil and import of all kinds, as well as management of external financial aids.

It was suggested that a distinction be made between what may be called primary level corruption which is by the elites and secondary level corruption by the average person in Africa.

Primary level corruption is of higher level or rate than the secondary level corruption and the two are informally related. Secondary level corruption occurs from the strategies that people devised to cope with the malfunctioning of institutions and service delivery systems.

For example anytime Nigeria is faced with fuel scarcity” which is often attributed to corruption by independent oil marketers and several high level executive in Nigeria oil and gas sector which lead to shortage in fuel supply resulting to the sale of fuel in black market and in addition some of the limited petrol service attendants took bribes from motorists in exchange for preferential treatment.

This shows that corruption at the retail or distribution level is secondary because it is related to corruption at the national level which means that corruption at the top results to corruption at the bottom.

There is a reason to believe that the high level of corruption in Africa is propelled by primary level corruption and much of the corruption at the lower level in Africa is a reflection of the mechanism that people use to deal with ineffective institutions.

As observed by Narayan et al this is not peculiar to Africa but other parts of the world as well. The breakdown of institutions, especially in case of state breakdown, people take such advantages to meet their needs, doing whatever necessary to survive not minding how dangerous or the unjust nature or exploitative nature of their actions which could be through active sabotage or passive resistance.

Another issue raised by Chabal and Daloz, in Africa’s corruption and disorder is functional and defines it unique developmental path, and this position determine a new paradigm.

Journal—An Ongoing Dialog Between thiaBasilia And Master Yahuwah/Yahushua. …

Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 8:30 am.

Inquiring minds? Forever the question, “What came first? The chicken or the egg?” Who cares?

O my Father! I haven’t got the slightest how to get out of this mood that I am in. To realize one’s deficiencies; one’s inabilities? It’s enough for a bad mood!

What’s the most depressing deficiency that troubles me?

That’s just it! I don’t even know what is it that troubles me, my Father? Perhaps the inability to let go of the insidious self-consciousness always lurking around no matter what I say or do!

No matter how certain I am? I can’t rid myself of the after the fact effect. I can’t get rid of that ‘humanly perfect’ concept. I can’t get rid of that insidious fear of repercussion.

Am I alone in this train of thought?

Perhaps that’s the human trend that humans so cleverly hide. Perhaps I’m opening a can of worms. Those hidden worms eating us up unaware.

Perhaps it’s You, my Father, the One opening that can of squirmy varmints eating me up unaware. Hum! Now I’m getting hot in the finding game, am I not, my Father?

O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart? Indeed! I have separated you to cleanse you with the experience of My written words. For what purpose? That you might be set-apart and faultless. That you might be in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things at My return.

Father? The Organized Church troubles me.

O my Beloved Father, You compel me to look around all the evil going on. I look around. I see the Organized Church as the greatest stumbling block for a closer relationship with You.

Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 5:28 am.

What now, O my Father? Your plan of restoration consumes my being.

Your Presence within my being compels me in the Oneness with Your Being. Sunning myself on the roof I see luscious gardens. I see happy faces taking care of those garden. I hear sweet loving songs.

The disgusting clutter in the present roofs? The screeching noise that goes by the name of music now? The crying babies. The disturbing angry voices? All gone!

Even now while we are still breathing the polluted air on these earthly grounds?

Even now Your plan of restoration is in effect. You have dried my tears away. You have restored me. In Your Presence You keep me aloof from all evil no matter any and all circumstances of glee or gloom.

Yes, You compel me to look around and be astonished at what goes on in this insanity ridden world.

I look around. I am astonished. Multitude of young people obsessed with the knowledge from the Tree of Good and Evil, but! Not a clue of what they do.

Multitude of parents obsessed with the raising of super knowledgeable children to rule the future in this world.

Behold the Great Fallen Away!

Right now as I look around all that goes on with young and old? I am astonished! The written words are coming to pass exactly as those are written, but!

What is it that troubles me with what I see? All this NOT so new thing with positive thinking and success, success, success.

Goodness sake! I am a member of Success Inspirers World Organization, and? Am I against SUCCESS? How that figures, O my Father? How that figures?

It figures in My written words, My child. I have planted you in this organization of My most selected children for you to herald those written words to them, why?

To prevent My most elected children from the great fallen away. You see, My child, your enemy is as shrew beyond your wildest imagination.

The enemy is no longer working on injecting doubt into your heart as to My intentions to forbid you to eat from that tree. No. That has already taken place.

So what is the enemy’s agenda now? To make of you a super human—full to the brim with the knowledge of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ quite capable to be your own ‘god’.

What for is there a need to depend on Me if you can depend on your own self, but! That is something not quite visible because of the camouflage of good and beautiful.

The New Age movement of positive thinking with all its branches? Is nothing else but tinsels instead of gold.

Even so, the GOLD of My Presence is now shinning forth from the heart of My selected witnesses. The experience of My written words?

That’s My work in the heart of My witnesses. That’s what makes My Presence shine forth as pure GOLD from the hearts of my selected vessels.

Furthermore? My selected vessels are not called to ‘teach’ or to ‘minister’ or to ‘police’ and apply those words as they see fit to do so. NAY!

My selected vessels only task is to refrain from doing any of that by the power of their mind. The written words CANNOT be taught by the power of the human mind.

It’s My Spirit Who gives LIFE to those words, but! The human mind is set to interpret and misconstrue My written words.

Therefore? My reason to empower you to give up the dependence in the human mind and heart both yours as well as any other human’s mind and heart.

My reason for planting you in the midst of My children in this institution? You are to share the experience of the words I have made alive in your heart.

Yahushua, Founder and Perfecter of Our Faith

THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,

Looking away [from all that will distract] to Yahushua, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of the Almighty.

What Sin?

What is the sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us? The sin of unbelief. We all brag about our beliefs, about our faith, but!

In real life? The Universities. The Doctors. The ‘Holy Ones’. The Worldly Famous. The Work of our hands? That’s the gist of our beliefs. That’s what we live by. That’s what is preached!

No kidding. I know the drill only too well, but! The power and wisdom from our Loving Father/Creator. He sent me a WITNESS. He turned me around, and? I saw!

What did I see?

The same thing the Father/Creator is now showing to all who has ears to hear and eyes to see. He showed me the utter arrogance of MY KNOWLEDGE!

I thought I knew Him when? I knew nothing period. Nothing about Him at all. Nothing about life. I was an educated fool!

O well? That’s my two cents to make the point of this writing. What am I to do right now?

Whether is liked or not? I am to proclaim to SIWO and the whole world, the TRUTH of the evil of what the world has programmed us to do on this SUCCESS thing. It’s written,

2Timothy 4:1-4

I CHARGE [you] in the presence of the Almighty and of Messiah Yahushua, Who is to judge the living and the dead, and by (in the light of) His coming and His kingdom:

Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.

For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold,

And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions.

Dear Reader, none of us wish to hear such strong words. We are at the point that we only want to hear compliments and words of encouragement, but!

It’s imperative that we take these words, bitter as they are, in the same way we would take the most distasteful medication to heal our bodies.

NO! I am not against SUCCESS. I am for SUCCESS in hearing and understanding the intent of our Creator for creating us. He created us for 3 reasons:

  1. To love Him.
  2. To be loved by Him.
  3. Your Cherish Family O Mighty One? Forever To be!

Heavenly ointment to heal our wounded souls

To that end? We work day and night to accomplish His plan of restoration to the original intent for our creation.

Those words are the heavenly ointment to heal our wounded souls. Wounded by the lack of Knowledge of His loving ways.

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂

What’s This Post All About? A Significant Comment ….?

Productivity….

Friday, April 13, 2018 at 4:14 am.

These are days of much reflection for me ….?

Yes, indeed! You are with me whether gloom or glee! Even so? The moments of gloom multiply. The moments of glee? So far in between they happen to fly by and by.
These are days of much reflection for me as it is for a certain few. Yes, it’s a comfort to find those few, but! For the most?

This is a lonely road in the trails of this insane world ….?

Even so, it is by choice that anyone travels in it. I made my choice. I chose to follow Yahushua. No regrets. How did I so chose?

By the power of my Father’s love and wisdom from on high. Of my own power? Impossible. Unless the Father calls? No one can come to the SON.

What it means to live in self-righteousness ….?

The hardest I tried to follow Yahushua? The farthest away from Him I lived. Yes, to live in self-righteousness is to live far from Yahushua, but!
A self-righteous life is what all human beings with no exceptions are programmed to live. Eve n so? Father knows all about it.
It’s now 5:14 pm. I slept from 1:31 pm to 3:39 pm. Was led to go directly to my inbox. There I was led to click on, https://adewumipeterblog.wordpress.com/2018/03/19/gods-generals-are-you-a-general-in-your-field/.

And my heart constricted big time! ….?

My Brother Peter is only expressing the staunch belief and standard for all Ministers leaders of the Flock.
I wanted to cry, but! Instead? Father’s wisdom prevail. I found myself so full of laughter, compassion, immense undying love for all my deserters et all!
I got over my shock. I heard: “Think like I think, respond! Reason with your brother et all. Reason with the wisdom I have instilled within your being.” I obeyed. I wrote:

I do not debate or tell anybody what to do or not to do. I share what Father is doing with me.
John was right.
We are wrong.
We call evil good.
We call good evil.
All those so called ‘Ministries’ are not in the will of our Father.
We do not know our Father/Creator or His ways.
We are not going to any ‘Heaven’.
The Kingdom of heaven is in our hearts, but! We take it for granted with our carnal minds.
The Kingdom of Heaven shall be established in Jerusalem here on earth like it is in heaven.
These things The Almighty Spirit of our Creator is now revealing to us. To me personally? Quote:
“My children think, act, live by what they know, but! My children do not ‘know’ Me. In the same way? You just realized it’s the same about you and your children and friends.

Your children and friends do not know you, but! Regardless? You have not for one instance stopped loving them.
Even more so? You realize they as well love you despite the lack of knowledge on either end.
Likewise? It’s between My children and My Being. Only difference? I know it all, but! I only let you know so much as you need to know at any given time, and?
Today? This Little Portion Of My Knowledge? Hit You Like A Bomb! Why?
Because it is a bomb—THE BOMB that completely destroyed all traces of evil murdering thoughts about your children et all.
Go On My Child! Now You Thinking Like I Think ….?”
Unless the Father/Creator does the work within each one of us personally? We labor in vain.
Yes, thank our Father for the great workers. Those workers did not mean for us to PRAISE THEM! They all directed us to our Father/Creator Yahuwah/Yahushua.
Unfortunately? We follow man not our Father/Creator. We have made a ‘God’ of our Father/Creator, but!
That’s all coming to an end now. Behold! The Power of love and wisdom from on high. It never fails. It always avails.
Therefore? O well! Our paths have crossed. The plan of restoration to the original intent for our creation is now in effect.
To Love.
To Be Loved.
Your Cherish Family O Mighty One? Forever To be!
We have been saved, but! We, liken to the Galatians & the Corinthians have remained CARNAL depending in our carnal mind knowledge.
BUT! No Problem. Our Father is STILL in control of it ALL!
HE IS BRINGING US ALL TO THE FIRST & MOST IMPORTANT OF THE COMMANDMENTS! Hahaha! HalleluYah.
Much love, thiaBasilia. 🙂

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂

Retribution? No Question About It …. ?

Things much ignored by the public …. ?

Indeed! There is retribution for all wrongs committed, but! It is not up to us to retaliate. Vengeance is Mine says the Father/Creator of our beings.

Why bring this matter up right now? Well, the things that the Spirit of my Father within me reveals to me while I sleep are things much ignored by the public.

The public seems to be oblivious to all mention of an end coming to the present earth. So many false alarms have rang in the ears of the public that by now?

All such alarms are passé, people are anesthetized, just like the enemy forces planned for it to be, but! No matter what it looks like? The Father/Creator is in control of it all.

Indeed! The Father/Creator is in control of it all …. ?

So? Despite my own doubts and fears about what it comes to me to write about? The Spirit of my Father/Creator continues to lead me ahead to write, publish, and optimize.

He is doing the rest. He knows what I think. He knows my words before I pronounce them. How He knows such. Ah! It just dawns on me!

He knows all about my thoughts because He is the one ingraining those thoughts and those words in my mind. How and why?

Simple. To deprogram my mind …. ?

My mind just like all human minds have been programmed to think contrary to the truth of our existence, but! The Father/Creator’s unfathomable wisdom.

On that Wisdom I rest for the Best …. ?

Alright! My Father knows that the question about the restoration of this area came about today as I watched videos on hot houses, organic gardens, and?

I saw the amazing progress some companies have accomplished in the USA building hot houses and planting the gardens just like Father has shown to me for this area.

OOO! How did I take it all …. ?

Now? To make myself clear. The written words in what is commonly known as the Bible? Those written words are coming to pass exactly as those are written.

With a few exceptions? All religious doctrines. All scholarly interpretations of those written words? Totally worthless. Only good to lead the Father/Creator’s children away in disarray.

Multitudes, multitudes are now in the valley of decision not knowing which way to turn, but! The Father/Creator knows each one individually in that multitude, and?

He is now reaching out to each individual soul …. ?

Thus, this information is going forth. To get back to the title ‘Retribution’. Ha! First? He quickens certain Scriptures for me to see His plan to restore us.

Then? He leads me to read about the restoration of this Edomites land where now I am. Next? I read about the destruction of the Edomite race, and?

The gathering of His children in this area while He, the Creator destroys the rest of the earth. Next? He leads me to watch the videos about my dream gardens already created in the USA. AND!

The big question pops into my mind …. ?

Are not those gardens to be created in this area, my Father? As it is right now? We are millions behind accomplishing such amazing results as those companies have accomplished.

What gives, my Father? Again, am I far off in left field with all those dreams and visions I been writing about? What’s my Father’s answer?

One word. “Retribution” …. ?

What threw me into questioning what Father gives me to write? Several things that are happening. things that are already in the Father’s plan for our good. Things I shouldn’t be concerned about.

  1. The reluctance of my people to visit Jordan.
  2. The silence.
  3. The lack of response.
  4. The lack of change in my people’s behavior.

Those things are in my mind but! I brush them aside, until? I see the prosperity that is promised to me given to others, and?

My mind spiral downwards! If only momentarily  ….?

For that one word, “Retribution”? Brings me to the reality of my Father’s ways, and? Power to sit still. Power to wait. Encouragement. Peace. Joy. Joy inexplicable returns to my soul.

Later! I need sleep. It’s now Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 2:38 am.

I woke up around 6 am. Fixing me some eats and drinks. Now? Ready to continue with the matter of retribution.

Retribution from who or whom? The answer …. ?

The Edomites! They denied food and water to the passing Israelites on the way to the land, and? Time now for retribution.

The Edomites are the descendants from Esau, hateful twin brother of Jacob/Israel. From the womb there was war between the brothers, but!

Esau was destined for destruction from the beginning because of his carnal evil nature. How all of this comes into play now?

I am not a ‘Bible Scholar, but! …. ?

I can honestly say that I have never been inclined to apply myself to study these matters. My learning curve is just not there.

I have never been able to even to memorize one verse of Scripture. I must refer to the online versions of the commonly called ‘Bible’ to check all that the Spirit leads me to check.

In other words? I am not a ‘Bible’ scholar nor have done extensive research on these matters, but! I can quote and correctly apply any Scripture in that Book at any given time.

How I do it? I don’t know. It just comes to me. Whatever comes to me? I check with the written words, and? Astonishment!

Ah! So that’s what You mean! Now I understand. Then I go on to the next matter …. ?

Right now? My dilemma triggered by watching those videos on the hot houses and gardens. It’s about the situation whether or not Father is the Author of the words I have written so far.

Whether or not His promises are for real or not …. ?

My question? Is this area to be restored or is it to be destroyed with the rest of the earth as it is now? The answer?

Father sent me to re-read Yedidah’s account of the matter. This account, to my knowledge, is by far the only accurate present account of this matter revealed to Yedidah

Who is Yedidah and how Father connected and disconnected me from Yedidah? That’s another intricate story, but! As I read her article on,

EDOM, PETRA AND THE REGATHERING AND PRESERVATION OF ALL THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL IN THE LAST DAYS

 

Amazing! My dilemma? Gone forever! I see now a more clear picture of the future of this deprived area in the skirts of Amman, Jordan.

As I sit under the early morning shining sun on the roof this wonderful apartment my Father has gifted to me?

I vision all roofs now crowded with disgusting clutter in a totally different view. As far as my eyes can reach I see now renovated buildings.

I see luscious vegetables and flowers gardens to my delight. I see playing children in safe areas suited for their ages. I see joyful faces occupied in the keeping of the gardens, and?

My being soars high! Up and up to the Presence of my Master to be alone with Him. Alone and aloof from all distractions in gloom or glee! Father? In silence I worship Thee.

I thank You, my Father for my and Ahmad’s restored health, but most of all? I thank You for Your victory, Your favor, Your love, Your peace, Your joy, and Your matchless, unbroken companionship!

Dear Reader, what will I post today? Perhaps the links to the three posts written since I posted last. I’ll see what Father leads me to do as the day advances.

I have to figure out how to insert the links or how to post them. Besides those 3 posts I have also finished Chapters 5 and 6 of The Family—A True Story.

Need to add those to the page, and? There are several neglected chores in need of my attention. Much to do, but! No rush. No pressure. Only?

Inexplicable power, freedom, confidence, certainty, assertiveness, peace, love, joy, the immensity of my Father’s victory, favor, and unbroken companionship! Here are the titles. I will post links later.

  • War? I Hear The Rumors Of Imminent War In Israel.
  • What It Means To Rest? To Really, Really Rest …. ?
  • Retribution? No Question About It …. ?

O dear Reader, I leave you with that thought in mind. Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.

HONEST TO GOODNESS I AM NOT A WACKO …. ?

Hysterical? Somebody Must Have Pushed My Button….?

O dear, dear Readers, I’m hysterical. Here I am, seriously putting pieces together to give you all the best information of what is happening in my life. Whatever for?

Simple. I Am An Angel—A Messenger, But!

It took my Heavenly Father a long time to show me such amazing fact about myself. All my life people had me to believe I was mentally disturbed.

My mental history it’s a mile long, maybe longer, but! There was not any mental disability at all.

I Am Gifted. Seriously Called To Be A Messenger, But!

That’s the ways of the Father/Creator believe it or not. He let us experience evil, sometimes I think longer than necessary, but! What do I know? Regardless my thinking? Father Yah knows better than me, for sure!

Okay? Why Am Hysterical …?

O well. Maybe I do have problems that I don’t know about it, but! I am a busy one learning how to handle SiteOrigin PageBuilder.

I am guessing millions of people are well familiar with PageBuilder. Me? I just now finding out about it. Anyhow?

I am making progress, but! I have not had time to post. No problem. Really, my Father leads me all the way, so? He led me to this graphic that has caused my hysteria. Why?

Well, I Don’t Know Exactly Why, But …?

I sense some people might think I am really out there on the left field. I sense perhaps I am losing credibility, why?

Because what I see coming to pass sooner than we think is really outlandish, but! Those things will come to pass. That’s all I know. How and when? That’s not for me to know.

That’s really the reason I have not been posting lately. Been waiting for Father to dispel this sense that something is amidst.

Father At Work With My Dilemmas …?

What better way to dispel this sense than letting you all know the truth about me. I just look and act like a wacko, but! So did all the greater workers of ancient times. I’m in good company.

Doubts. Fears. Sensing Reality? No Problem. My Task. My Mast.

Anyhow? I been up since before midnight yesterday. Hard at works I been. Looking for a file in the myriad of folders I have created. Not an easy task, but!

Father always have a reason for my looking. The graphic I found today? It served to cheer me up. I know it’ll cheer you up as well. So? I decided to share my good moments with ye all.

Back To Work….? Maybe, If I Don’t Fall Asleep!

But I got to get back to my folders to get graphics I have created a long time ago. They come in handy now. I hope you enjoyed this wacky write up even when I am not a wacko.

BTW When we look at others with critical eyes? We are looking in a mirror. Oo, but that just came to me. ???

One more thing: Take a look at my progress with my personal blog. Eat your heart out! No one has a blog like mine! Hahaha! HalleluYah. https://www.thia-basilia.com/

I’m so proud of my progress, OOO! There I go with that ‘MY’—can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but! Father knows all about this old dog. He knows I’m just being fictitious.

I’m well aware of my deficiencies as a designer. All the honor goes to the good support techs in the Net/SiteOrigin/Great Software/And? The techs unending patience with me.

Of course, the techs? They don’t have the heart to tell me I have a long way to go to be as good as I make out to be. No problem. Father knows all about it. I am going on!

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.

Everybody gets to rejoice with me now, No exceptions! No more the grumpy face of the last few days. Even my gout is rejoicing with me!

What Is It With The Push To ‘Love Ourselves’?

No it’s nothing wrong with loving ourselves. In fact we are supposed to do so. Why now the passionate ‘push? Maybe we are swimming in reverse.

We been swimming in the seas of hate for ourselves plus the fuss so long, so long. Now we are swimming in the seas of love and peace and all beautiful as it is to belong

Do we realize why we swim at all?

Why we swim the turbulent waters as well as the peaceful ones? Why we do what we do one way or the other?

Sure! Many have figured out such a puzzle, but!

Not many I hear tell what it should be told. As a whole is not a matter of love or hate. That’s only the buds of the root with no debate.

The root? No debate?

There is hate. Yes, the core of all our doings with no exception. With much perception. Indeed! The root of all our universal problems is ANGER, but not just anger in the general sense of the word. NAY!

What is ANGER   ?

Anger is the killer of all our good and noble intentions as well as the killer of the most depraved and corrupted ones, but!

What specifically kind of anger has come to my knowledge only recently?

  • We are ANGRY at two beings in our lives.
  1. The Mighty Being Who created us.
  2. The woman that gave birth to us.

Preposterous! No way! We love and take care of mom. We bless her. We go out of our way to show our love to our moms. Indeed we do!

And the Creator? For goodness sake! Don’t I see the most fantastic demonstrations of worship?

The music. The great sacrifices. The offerings. Wow! How can we be angry with a deity we claim to be ‘love’?

Ah! But we are. I never saw this before as I am seeing it now. Think about it dear reader, why all this amazing demonstrations of love for those two beings in our lives?

Granted, some mothers are well deserving of such love as we see fit, but whether the mother deserves it or not we feel compelled to love her. We go out of the way to show such love.

And we are angry with mother? And the Creator? Don’t we even sacrificed our lives to serve and honor Him? But! We are angry with both of them.

How can that be? How can we be angry with such Beings?

That’s what the Father/Creator has been driving at by letting us stew in our anger until we cry ‘uncle!’ Until we hit bottom just like any addicted one would do to overcome the addiction.

What is ANGER?

Anger is an addiction that no human being can really conquer. You’ll see. How long shall take for you to see? That’s the question and the answer I have no business meddling with.

The question and the answer I have no business meddling with. …?

I have greater matters in my way—gout pain? Much greater than meddling with somebody’s else’s gout! I am going on! Victory at last! Even my gout is rejoicing with me!

I been totally frustrated with my designing skills, but! Just now? I accomplished close to what I want to accomplish! Hahaha! HalleluYah! Take a look: https://www.thia-basilia.com/

Everybody gets to rejoice with me now, NO EXCEPTIONS! No more the grumpy face of the last few days. Even my gout is rejoicing with me! How ’bout you? And? How you been my dear Reader?

How is about a comment not just an awesome?

Even a couple of lines insulting me will come in handy. Hahaha! I’m a bundle of contradictions. Honestly.

One moment I am hassling the complementors like Ngobese. The next moment? I’m relishing his compliments. The next moment? I rather be insulted than complimented!

O dear! There is a time and a place to accommodate all my contradictions, and? A time and a place for yours as well.

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Chapter 2 To Continue The Saga Of The Mother In The Family—A True Story.

 

http://www.thia-basilia.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/A-Graphic_4_CHAPTER-2_of_The_Family-2.jpg

In that mental ward? I heard: “My People Perishes For Lack Of Knowledge or Understanding Of My Ways. You are here to learn. In the future your experience shall avail many.”

In Retrospect? My Parents Were Moral, Religious People ….

My parents were moral and religious people, with good intentions, and high moral standards. And they did love us.

Nevertheless, I will make the following statements based on what the Spirit of the Father/Creator has revealed to me in my latter days.

Explosive Revelation! My People Perishes For Lack Of Understanding Of My Ways….?

It was towards the end of 1985. I had suffered a total mental breakdown for the second time. Shivering and Clad with a blanket a kind worker had placed of my shoulders? I paced the mental ward in a public hospital in New Orleans, LA.

Shivering I paced along many others, some of them holding on to opened Bibles. Chanting. Smoking. Even cursing I watched, strangely? Undisturbed. It was then when I heard:

My People Perishes For Lack Of Knowledge or Understanding Of My Ways. You are here to learn. In the future your experience shall avail many.

That all happened some 33 years ago, and? As I am editing this chapter from my Autobiography, My Teacher reminds me of that incident to prick your interest on how things are developing since that time.

Lack Of Knowledge Of The Almighty’s Word….?

My parents were somehow confused about the Almighty’s Word. They were not totally ignorant about the Almighty’s Word, for they were Catholic Christians and they knew the basics of the Christian faith, but!

They were ignorant of the Truth of  the Almighty’s Word. They were not totally ignorant people, for they had a certain amount of formal education.

In fact, my father, I understand, did speak English. Although, as I recollect very distinctively how one of his sons, Miguelito, who spoke English quite well, used to kid about papa’s English.

For myself? I couldn’t have told you whether my father did or did not spoke English, because?

Well, because I hadn’t had the foggiest idea about any other languages at the time. I was quite enchanted with my own language to worry about English or anything else, even to worry about my father’s education or linguistic ability.

The point being that my people were not ignorant people. Perhaps un-educated, yes. But, what good education would have done?

The Ignorance Of The Truth In The Almighty’s Word? The Cause And Effect Of Mine And This Insanity Ridden World….

It was not ignorance of the Almighty, or lack of goodly ways either, for I grew up in a goodly and moral environment, more so than the modern environment of this day and age.

I remember one time, I shall never forget it. My grandmother taught us to pray. We used to have prayer meetings often.

It was hard to pray because we had to kneel in the dirt floor for a long time and go through the whole “rosary”. (The rosary beads prayer).

On top of that? My grandmother did not know the exact format to pray the rosary. So, they, the grown-ups had to keep saying back and forth “no, not that way, we forgot to say this or that, let’s start over again from ….”

Oh man! Poor old kiddos with the knees on that dirt! So, when I went away “into the wide world yonder” of the little country town nearest to my father’s land, to “Boarding School” in pursuit of an education, when I came home for break?

I was most enthusiastic about bringing my grandmother the “educated way of prayer.” My grandmother listened carefully and with a kind but firm tone of voice she said something to the effect,

“That’s very good, I am very glad that you have learned, and now that you know how to pray, would you go ahead and pray, my dear daughter?”

For goodness’s sake! I wasn’t the one interested in praying. All I wanted was to teach her the format of the rosary so that I wouldn’t have to pray for such a long time, but!

It was a hopeless situation, she was too far gone to the judgment of a 10-year-old’s evaluation of her education. To my judgment? She couldn’t be educated nor convinced to make things a little easier for us children.

So, I quit giving instructions to my grandmother right there and then, I wasn’t dumb, I knew her meaning.

So, it was not ignorance of the Almighty. For my grandmother was a righteous woman. But she got set in her idea of the Almighty concerning discipline because, she didn’t know the Truth of the the Almighty’s Word.

Ignorance. Rebellion? A Pair To Follow Me Most Of My Life.

The conflict became even more severe as I grew older, because I, also, grew up ignorant.

  1. Ignorant of The Almighty’s Word.
  2. Driven by the spirit of rebellion.
  3. Rebellion? Ingrained in the human being at birth.
  4. Rebellion imbedded in our human nature
  5. Imbedded in me. Adequately nurtured with the poison of rejection/fear.
  6. Producing the emotional wounds from my early childhood’s sufferings.

I knew why my grandmother was so mean and distrustful of me. Why she would punish me so severely? Several reasons:

  • She had taught me about moral values and good behavior, but!
  • Though I wanted to live up to what my grandmother had taught me? I failed miserably to do so.
  • Yes, I knew in my heart it was the right way to live, even so?
  • I was not able to live up to those standards.
  • I kept falling short of her expectations.
  • That is why grandmother would punish me.
  • That’s what I knew.

What I Didn’t Know Was That All Human Beings Have The Same Passions And Problems.

I didn’t know that we are all born with the spirit of rebellion imbedded in our natures, without the ability to be good. Despite the many considered ‘good’ by this world’s standards.

Therefore, when I failed to live up to the standards that I was expected to live as I was growing up, I felt that I was the only one to be so bad.

I felt that I was the most wicked person in the whole world because I kept falling short not only from what grandmother had taught me but also from what it seemed to be the standards of every grown up that became involved in my life as I was growing up.

I kept falling short even from what I knew in my heart to be the right way of living, my own standards.

Emotionally Disturbed? Yes, According To The Jargon Of The Psychiatrist’s World. Actually….?

Whence, I grew up emotionally disturbed, according to the jargon of the Psychiatrist’s World; actually, the truth of the matter?

The spirit of rebellion imbedded in my nature gave way to many other evils that were to assail me during long periods of my life.

No one human had been able to deliver me ….

For better than 20 years I had undergone treatment for mental health, and even though I had received excellent treatment from many outstanding psychiatrists and mental health caretakers?

Not a single one had been able to free me from the bondage of what they called “emotional disturbance” or “emotional disability.” But!

The Truth of the Almighty’s Word did set me free permanently and forever in a matter of a moment.

What is that Truth to deliver me?

The truth of our dual existence with two natures—the nature of our Almighty Creator and the nature of our birth into this world under the dominion of Satan for the time being.

That’s The Truth That Set Me Free….

Now? I am free indeed, to the glory and the honor only of the Almighty Father Creator of the Universe and all there in including us human beings.

The Purpose For My Story….?

And to testify about that Truth that set me free, is the purpose of this story, the story of my life.

Evil spirits rooted in the strong man of self-condemnation, self-rejection, self-pity and many cavorting demons tightened a grip on my soul that drove me to lose my mind in two occasions in my life, but!

That’s the darkness I had to come across to appreciate the magnificent Light emanating from the Presence of the Father/Creator within my being. In Him there is no darkness.

And That’s To Be The Subject For The Next Chapter In This Unique Saga.

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.
