Banana Bread and Praying…

Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”-Mathew-19:21I really believe that perhaps to a lesser extent the state of lawlessness prevalent in the world, has always been part of the Human Condition, and it is only because of our ability, to communicate better, that we are more conscious of what is happening globally.For example, it is possible for me to watch President Trump’s public speeches, should I so wish, from literally a few hours ago, right here in South Africa, where I live, via YouTube. Everything a nation does today has noticeable repercussions, good and bad.The planet can theoretically support a maximum of 10 billion people when the food will run out, we are now running at 5.2 billion, give or take. “WHO IS MY BROTHER?, WHO IS MY SISTER?”That’s scary because at the rate we are procreating right now, we will hit that mark much too soon. My country is in a state of anarchy, I know, it may sound like too strong a word, but as a retired person having served in my country’s military intelligence division and looking in retrospect, from a world history point of view, the things happening here now are classic revolutionary signs, of many countries on the brink of going horribly wrong, for whatever reason, immediately before wars broke out, even the global tensions, i.e. Syria, North Korea etc. follow certain historic patterns.Fortunately, it’s not all bad, really, because such dire situations also bring along in its wake, incredible solutions, which would otherwise not have seen the light of day. Of the 100’s of thousands of time and money saving ideas, born under these conditions, one such example comes to mind, I’m of course referring here, to the humble banana loaf which was born during the great depression of 1933 out of scarcity and famine.Housewives wanted to avoid throwing overripe bananas into the trash and struck on turning them into a healthy and nutritious food instead.While no sane person is impervious to the status quo, a considerable portion of my mind is tentatively awaiting the certainty of great news, bound to follow in the course of hard times.In closing, another similar positive outcome is, that, it is precisely during times like these, when mediocre believers are brought down to the one, virtually extinct position, (symbolically), namely, that of remaining in a prostrate position, (kneeling) before the Almighty God.

Hello, my name is Andre’ Hartslief. I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose in life, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life is to express divinity through every one of us. How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and when we start removing those limitations. It is only, then, that the intelligence which gives us all life, namely, the source, begins to express itself unbridled through us.
