I love to watch the old sci-fi films from the 50’s and 60’s—centering on themes such as giant leeches, ants, spiders and locusts. They entertain to the hilt and thrill to open dark corners of the mind where these creatures lurk. One needs to be cautious, though, lest these creepy images consume an overly active imagination. The same can be said for Apocalyptic Literature, for as with horror movies, this literature is not factual but actually imaginative and surrealistic in nature and not to be taken literally. The Book of Revelation, although at times entertaining, is meant to convey messages that are deeply hidden on the spiritual level—which is why the vivid and shocking imagery is intended to wake-up the reader to higher Spiritual Truths. read more

One particular statement stands most vividly in mind: “He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster”…Yet, the question needs to be asked, just who are the monsters and those who one considers as being friendly? Usually a friend is one who will continue to accept you despite all your foibles no matter what the cost, and an enemy is one who seeks to permanently wreck you into oblivion. And yet the opposite can also be the case. Friendships can be very fragile, especially in this age of the social beast where one phrase can obliterate an otherwise eternal pact of kinship. And a purported enemy can actually “wake-one” up from the present dangerous path one may be embracing, challenging and breaking the façade and in so doing creates a more stronger “you.” So just who is the real monster? read more
