How do I communicate with God?Written by Terry Dashner
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 hear other, process information, and then speak to confirm dialogue. So dialogue is not just speaking one’s mind, but it is hearing 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 to other person speak also. Why am I belaboring point? For this reason: Communication is not just speaking in 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 called law of proximity. It speaks about 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 to 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 in English language. But, this begs 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 MagicWritten by Tobias Lars
. The Real Black Magic
As usual things are closer to truth if you take opposite of what is being said or presented as being 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 in open, when they remain hidden in “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 behind scenes. Overt lying-denial, “I don’t have any idea what you’re talking about”, Public Relations firms twisting truth for their clients to appear different than they really are”, “Spin” i.e. massaging 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 up house for neighbors for fear of “how it will look” is a small example of “presentation face” we all put on. While that may be no big deal, it is a symptom of 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 from “neighbors” that this way of being is considered normal. Not being straightforward, not being able to express how we really feel, needing to temper impulse, adjust, water down, “civilize” 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 opens 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 all while real power struggles go on in “black” behind closed doors, in “closed chambers”, “no access”, “private party”, “security clearance needed”. That’s where real power games go on, where deals are made, opponents snuffed out, “convinced” as to what’s best for them to do. And then 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 for cameras. When there is no openness of motives, no laying cards on table, trusting that everyone will win, that there is plenty for everyone to go around, then there is no faith, no love, no allowing of creative Source of Universe to fill us and our cups till “they runneth over”. Then there is true black magic in survival of “fittest” i.e. most brutal, heartless, ruthless, “dog eat dog” world takes over. Pit-bull arenas everywhere vying for a feeding spot at vein of Mother Earth. Vampires one and all. Basically this is a description of “civilization” we have arrived at today. Current “civilization” is mostly dog eat dog model. Our leader resort to war, to brutal killing of “other” “enemy”. They may create a “World Court” in Hague but when it comes down to it we use bombs, weapons, power, ‘might is right’ and violence. What is motivator behind (in 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 to rules you are threatened with Violence to point of death penalty. If you don’t follow 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 is “law of jungle” that people that promote this false civilization say we are getting away from! If this is example governments and leaders of world set how can we expect our business leaders, our citizens, and our kids to behave differently?
