On Why God Revises His Story

 Anyone asking oneself, “Who and what for, am I?” is philosopher

and … in surreal, nonfiction … one’s brothers’ … keeper.

 Judaism’s six hundred thirteen laws have proven to be too numerous …

and their effect …  in, nonfiction … too onerous.

Christianity’s Ten Commandments prove too, that a marked reduction

in laws need not … more wisdom, bring … to, fruition.

Islam’s Five Commandments (haraam) govern over the morality

of human action …. Apparently, five may be, four … too many.

: Why not study then a global secular government, with freedom of religion

and but, a single, commandment … as foundation?

: That Commandment may be the singularly cross-cultural Golden

Rule: Do unto others as ye’d have be done unto ye … by them.

: “I am Lord Allah to my Muslim children, Yahweh, to my Jewish

children and God, Jehovah, to my Christian children. Kapish?”

: “And, lest I forget; I am Vishnu too. Kapish? Take from Art Everman,

my angel-in-training, the blessing of, simplification.

: if the Creator, on occasion, revises His short story (history), it may be

’cause pen and plan make editing as easy as, ABC.

Treat Ye Others as Ye Would Have Others … Treat Thee (IV)

The Golden Rule or the ethic of reciprocity is a maxim, ethical code or
morality that essentially states either of the following: One should treat
others as you would like others to treat oneself, OR,
one should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated.

The Golden Rule can be found in the early contributions of Confucianism,
but the concept’s framework appears prominently in many religions,
including Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism,
and the rest of the world’s major religions.

That’s quite a pedigree, as maxims go. Ergo, ought not a learning-impaired
humanity adopt it as the more secular-friendly and simplified
equivalent of an ethical code or morality, more than enough, sufficiently dignified
to bring hope … to this fractious status quo … disordered.

“Treat others as you would Have others treat thee.” The Golden Rule; seemingly,
near perfect … for a learning-impaired … humanity.
“Treat others as you would Have others treat thee.” A short phrase that pithily
captures the spirit of Him … who created thee.

For brothers’ keepers in this fractious status quo, piecemeal peace, is no answer;
but the late great Nelson Mandela’s visionary model may yet deliver
us from the more or less continuous anarchy … that seemingly … ever and ever,
haunts humanity. But what’s good for the goose … is good for the gander.

And, if indeed, what’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.
then why not a GLOBAL Truth and Reconciliation … consider?
For indeed, for brothers’ keepers, piecemeal peace, is no answer;
Nelson’s legacy is the power, to forgive and forget … to live … together.

Nelson Mandela’s Legacy: Alchemy

us from the more or less continuous anarchy … that seemingly … ever and ever,
haunts humanity. But what’s good for the goose, is good for the gander.

That’s to say that South Africa’s improbable social and political experiment may be
successful as well on that larger stage that is planetary … in scope;
just like an off-Broadway show that goes on to Broadway … however improbably.
The proof is in the pudding … and its main ingredient … is hope.

And, if indeed, it turns out that what’s good for the goose, is good for the gander,
then why NOT a global Truth and Reconciliation … consider?
For indeed, for brothers’ keepers, piecemeal peace, is no answer;
Nelson’s legacy’s … the power … to forgive and forget … and to live … together.

For verily, what could be more alchemical than that, that exponentially
builds atop the efforts of those whom have built a foundation?
What human experience better exemplifies the human spirit than the legacy
of Nelson Mandela’s model of Truth and … Reconciliation?

Irony, the International Criminal Court and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (VI)

150 Sunni Muslims unearthed in mass grave; yet another crime against humanity
by the Islamic State … and its ‘Caliph’ … Abu Bakr … al-Baghdadi.

The ‘Caliph’ can’t kill fast enough to suit himself. Thankfully, he’s also sufficiently
brazen enough to be well on his way … to convicting himself … ironically.

For would it not be ironic if the Islamic State’s very own video postings are to be
evidence in the International Criminal Court … against … al-Baghdadi.

Verily, it would be supremely ironic if the Islamic State’s very own video postings
were to be used … as evidence … in an ICC proceeding.

For normally, in any ICC investigatory proceeding of crimes against humanity
probative evidence is less than enough to promise … a verdict of “guilty”.

But here, a sociopath on a par already with the worst sociopaths in world history,
provides evidence against himself … most fortuitously.

Most fortuitously, that is, for us; stupidly, for him and his ilk. And how much more
ironic might this be … were an outcome to be … AN END TO WAR!

An end to war …. How on Earth might that be? It may be when I treat thee
as I would be treated … by thee.

ALLAH/GOD/JEHOVAH/YAHWEH’S … RIVER … OF TIME

She loved me once. Then … she loved me not. The former, I often heard; the latter … not ever.
But actions … and omissions to act … speak volumes … deafeningly.
And so my sick heart now hurts less; for romantic declarations aside, aside from our Creator,
nothing’s forever … but Him … or Her; and that’s comforting … most definitely.

That (S)he is forever is most comforting; but there have been other comforts … since she
loved me not. That a heart is mended is, largely, an inconsequential one;
but knowing that beyond actions speaking loudly, that inaction speaks volumes … deafeningly,
is altogether, another. That latter slice of wisdom ought matter … to everyone.

Art’s life’s been more dissolute than resolute. He’s lost much held dear, especially a child whom
would have turned twenty-one years young, this Autumn’s October.
But Arthur’s losses; of parents, child, wife and life oft pale next to that of others, whom
struggle in … Allah/God/Jehovah/Yahweh’s … time river.

Allah/God/Jehovah/Yahweh’s river of time is a river, unfathomable. But fear not for ye
need not fathom its breadth. Ye need only believe; the Scriptures are ALL
subject to misinterpretation. Just do to others as ye would have them do unto thee.
And so Arthur writes … like Emily before him … to all.
