How do I communicate with God?

Which language does God understand?

Dialogue is essential to a relationship. Dialogue means that someone is communicating with someone else. It is true. In order to communicate effectively, both parties must hearrepparttar other, processrepparttar 136215 information, and then speak to confirmrepparttar 136216 dialogue. So dialogue is not just speaking one’s mind, but it is hearingrepparttar 136217 feedback of others.

A tired conversation, thus a taxed relationship is one where only one person gets to speak. If I enter into dialogue with another human being, I should not only speak but listen torepparttar 136218 other person speak also. Why am I belaboringrepparttar 136219 point? For this reason: Communication is not just speaking inrepparttar 136220 known vernacular.

I may communicate by body language. Body language is not articulated in speech; nevertheless, it speaks loudly. As a matter of fact, it will belie spoken words. I may say one thing with my lips, but be understood by my facial expressions. I may communicate by space. This is calledrepparttar 136221 law of proximity. It speaks aboutrepparttar 136222 distance closed, or surrendered between two people. If I close into your personal space and you don’t know me, you will move backwards. To be standoffish or to be too pushy (in proximity to where you stand), communicates volumes. So there are more ways to communicate in dialogue with another human being then merely speaking words. Yes there are, which brings me torepparttar 136223 reason for writing this document.

Do I communicate with God by speaking my primary language only? I speak English (twang with a Southwestern dialect) and I pray mostly in English; therefore, I communicate my thoughts to God inrepparttar 136224 English language. But, this begsrepparttar 136225 question. Am I communicating with God ONLY when I speak English? What if I choose to groan in emotional pain? What if I say nothing in English but lift my hands and look up to heaven? What if I sit in solitude with only my thoughts directed to God? Am I communicating with God? Yes.

The Real Black Magic

. The Real Black Magic

As usual things are closer torepparttar truth if you takerepparttar 136131 opposite of what is being said or presented as beingrepparttar 136132 truth. “Nothing is as it seems, skim milk masquerades as cream.” The real black magic is when there is a false front, when things are manipulated from a hidden place, when things aren’t out inrepparttar 136133 open, when they remain hidden inrepparttar 136134 “black”.

The “Presentation Face” Real black magic is when there is a “presentation face” being used, a “front”, “putting up a front”, “Image is everything”, etc. and using this front to divert attention from what is really going on behindrepparttar 136135 scenes. Overt lying-denial, “I don’t have any idea what you’re talking about”, Public Relations firms twistingrepparttar 136136 truth for their clients to appear different than they really are”, “Spin” i.e. massagingrepparttar 136137 truth to look better, “Plausible Denial” i.e. will this denial (lie) be believable, are all forms of schizoid, Jekyll and Hyde, false “black magic” being used to gain advantage, power over others. Cleaning uprepparttar 136138 house forrepparttar 136139 neighbors for fear of “how it will look” is a small example ofrepparttar 136140 “presentation face” we all put on. While that may be no big deal, it is a symptom ofrepparttar 136141 collective consciousness that it’s normal to be “two faced”, to put on a “front”, a “façade”. It is so ingrained in us to want approval, live in fear of disapproval fromrepparttar 136142 “neighbors” that this way of being is considered normal. Not being straightforward, not being able to express how we really feel, needing to temperrepparttar 136143 impulse, adjust, water down, “civilize”repparttar 136144 real response we would like to give creates a “Gap” in what is being presented as reality and what really is going on in reality. This opensrepparttar 136145 space for hidden “Black” magic manipulation of others. This “Gap” allows unlovingness, lying, deception, manipulation to enter in and be exerted in “the black”, i.e. hidden. The word occult means hidden, occluded, from sight or knowing. Basically real black magic is putting up a front, a façade, a presentation face to pay homage to some “how it should look” programmed in ideal, “how will it play in mid-America”, some imagined, idolatrous ideal/false god of “how it should be”. And allrepparttar 136146 whilerepparttar 136147 real power struggles go on inrepparttar 136148 “black” behind closed doors, in “closed chambers”, “no access”, “private party”, “security clearance needed”. That’s whererepparttar 136149 real power games go on, whererepparttar 136150 deals are made, opponents snuffed out, “convinced” as to what’s best for them to do. And thenrepparttar 136151 results are sanitized, “Mr. Harrison has decided to resign to spend more time with his family and is tendering his resignation at this time.” While they shake hands and smile forrepparttar 136152 cameras. When there is no openness of motives, no layingrepparttar 136153 cards onrepparttar 136154 table, trusting that everyone will win, that there is plenty for everyone to go around, then there is no faith, no love, no allowing ofrepparttar 136155 creative Source ofrepparttar 136156 Universe to fill us and our cups till “they runneth over”. Then there is true black magic in survival ofrepparttar 136157 “fittest” i.e.repparttar 136158 most brutal, heartless, ruthless,repparttar 136159 “dog eat dog” world takes over. Pit-bull arenas everywhere vying for a feeding spot atrepparttar 136160 vein of Mother Earth. Vampires one and all. Basically this is a description ofrepparttar 136161 “civilization” we have arrived at today. Current “civilization” is mostlyrepparttar 136162 dog eat dog model. Our leader resort to war, to brutal killing ofrepparttar 136163 “other”repparttar 136164 “enemy”. They may create a “World Court” inrepparttar 136165 Hague but when it comes down to it we use bombs, weapons, power, ‘might is right’ and violence. What isrepparttar 136166 motivator behind (inrepparttar 136167 black) all rules and laws? Violence! The implied or actual threat of physical violence! Get real! If you don’t clean up your room you get hit. If you don’t go to school you get sent to a special forced incarceration school. If you don’t act according torepparttar 136168 rules you are threatened with Violence torepparttar 136169 point ofrepparttar 136170 death penalty. If you don’t followrepparttar 136171 unspoken rules of this society you are threatened with violence. If you’re gay you get beaten, if you look different, dress different, think different, act different you get psychically or physically beaten. If you speak your true heart and mind most often you get killed. Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Ghandi, Osho, JFK, RFK, John Lennon etc. This is “civilized”? It truly isrepparttar 136172 “law ofrepparttar 136173 jungle” thatrepparttar 136174 people that promote this false civilization say we are getting away from! If this isrepparttar 136175 examplerepparttar 136176 governments and leaders ofrepparttar 136177 world set how can we expect our business leaders, our citizens, and our kids to behave differently?
