Do you ever have big thoughts while doing mundane activities?
While painting is not mundane, that’s what I was doing while I was thinking about dolphins. I’ve just learned how to create them!
I started thinking about the fun and smart personalities of dolphins, the beauty of whales, and the cunning of Orcas/Killer whales.
And then of course narwhals are pretty wonderful to look at. As well as hammerhead sharks.
These huge animals are amazing. They also live in the sea and ocean along with smaller fish like salmon and halibut, cool things like clams and oysters, and more cute animals like sea otters and octopus.
It’s very similar to big cats like cheetahs and lions living on land.
Dolphins would be like the Lions of the bunch. They’re just a bit different from the rest.
Another fun fact: I took a Harry Potter quiz to see what my Patronus is and I got the animal Dolphin! (I’m also a Ravenclaw if anyone is curious 😉
Anyway, one of my favorite things do do when God’s presence is strong with me is to create something beautiful and letting Him teach me about his favorite things 🙂
I love being with God ❤
There are some interesting misconceptions about what we would call “The Abyss.”
The abyss symbolizes a form of nothingness. An open door whose only entry requirement is that you agree to surrender all control over your body while still having a free mind, so to speak.
One form of the abyss is getting anesthesia during surgery. I’d argue that it is the abyss that Michael Jackson was addicted to, not the plastic surgery itself. His mind was brilliant, I am 1000% sure he had unique experiences while he was asleep.
A little over a week ago, I published a content about the abyss. It was in the mirror meditation post. I did not realize it at the time but it is the abyss of your eyes that allow a person to see into their own eternal soul.
Extreme drug use is also an abyss. For example, Heroin would be an abyss experience. If you do enough you will lose control over your body but your mind is more free to relax from pain and stress. [not recommended tho].
The abyss settings that I am most drawn to are the ones that present themselves as underwater waterfalls. It’s a form of exhilaration that I feel when I imagine being down there. No, I can’t even swim. Of course it is God’s will in my life that allows for my bravery to be present in my imagination.
It seems easy to be brave in your imagination but it is not. For some reason and probably more reasons, God sees the limits that people put on their minds. He can show you all the signs that you’re on the right path, doing the right thing, and still you will doubt. It’s not all your fault. We live in a “I got bills to pay” world.
God could even speak to you in person and a majority of you would still be afraid or would still have doubts.
Jesus said, “happy are those who believe without seeing me.”
But it’s beginning to seem like not many people believe that God is around in a face to face context. Even people who believe they are God’s “PET” still imagine God as an energy in a far away abyss. God could have given you his phone number and you’d say “Is it really him?!”
GOD will visit you in the abyss of our souls.
But when He looks into the abyss of most of these souls on Earth – He doesn’t like it there.
For the ones who He does like – He has sent the Holy Spirit and they still doubt because they still have limits on what they expect from God.
It’s not a critique on anyone but it makes me feel lonely. Thankfully I have God and Jesus as my best friends. But where are the people who I can talk to freely about God? Who wants to talk about what God’s voice sounds like? or what instruments remind Him of what elements? That’s why God has given me my son, I believe. His name literally means “promised by God” anyway lol.
God likes to talk to me because We like to talk about the same things. I can hear God and He is thankful to have created someone like me. All glory goes to GOD tho, I am overwhelmed with the thoughts and ideas and combinations that God tells me. He whispers His secrets to me because he loves me. He loves me because I like to spread HIS word, I like to talk about His creations, and the abyss of past depression has allowed God to see into my soul.
I’ve been through judgment day – judged down to the atoms in my soul and lucky for me I passed!
And so I am a true Aerial. Remember when my name was Star? I can see from the sky. I can look down across beautiful islands and see the abyss of underwater waterfalls.
Outer space is another abyss – the abyss of which we have all come from on a soul level.
From the point of view of this Ariel, The solar system is a puzzle. It needs to be put together so that the system will work in harmony. It doesn’t matter who believes this – it is the truth of our galactic existence. You can look at the world and see how it is. Look into your hearts and ask yourself, does this world feel like a system that is working?
And then, who is going to put it right as it should be? God, is the answer. And Jesus. And their Helper, the Holy Spirit. It’s the compassion and care of The Holy Spirit that is the strongest component to trying to solve the puzzle. Otherwise God would say Fuck This Place and burn it all down. LOL. It’s funny but I’m not joking. But remember – Jesus and The Holy Spirit are just names and titles. GOD is ALMIGHTY and the only ONE.
Someone told me that everyone doesn’t have the same relationship with God that I do so here are some things about God – HE is funny. He has dry humor LOL he is so SWEET and compassionate! He sees His creations in combinations. His love is so unmatched by anything else. I aim to love myself as much as God loves me but that would be impossible because GOD is limitless. God is also tired and wants to rest. Have you read all the adventures of the OLD testament? That’s a lot for one creator to go though. I want to Hug God and hold him close and protect Him from that kind of pain. The pain of people loving him and then abandoning Him. The ones who go to church and talk about each other instead of talking about GOD. They say that they Love God but they don’t really trust Him. I know what it’s like and I know how God feels (if even only a portion of his depth of knowledge). I have been through a lot and I’m here for GOD first and foremost. and then I’ve written so much website content that I think even maybe I can rest for a while, too.
Hey you guys! For my birthday, I’d like to tell you about my favorite song! Is that cool? 🙂
True – I have countless favorite songs. But this one is extra special for my birthday based on the lyrics, guitar riffs, and the overall awesomeness of this song that is also a reflection of me. At the risk of sounding self-centered, I’d like to say that System of a Down wrote Aerials JUST. FOR. ME. Logically, I do not know the band personally but, they still know me. OR, they know my kind.
SO, have you heard Aerials before? I listed to it maybe upwards of 20 times today. I’m powering up lol!
Let’s talk about the amazing lyrics of Aerials.
Life is a waterfall. We’re one in the river and one again after the fall.
This next verse is directly related to my past feelings of depression was overcome by the presence of God in my life:
Swimming through the void, we hear the WORD,
We lose ourselves but we find it ALL.
L o v e T h i s S o n g.
Cuz we are the ones the love to play,
Always wanna go but you never wanna stay.
That is funny because that is me. I always want to go to a party or gathering but when I get there, I am ready to leave. LOL. It reminds me of these people I used to hang out with. A young lady and her boyfriend used to invite me out to house parties and stuff. The boyfriend, James, always told me, “Whenever you wanna leave, Nay. We will go.” and I LOVED that. I felt so comfortable. and then, a group of us went out without James. And when I was ready to go – James’ girlfriend was like, “It’s not happening tonight, Nay-Nay.” SMH I admit to being a little demanding but I didn’t like her attitude about it lol
In The Sky.
When you lose small mind you free your life.
This song is perfection and blessed are those who find comfort and salvation in these lyrics.
Another reason why this song is so special to me is because God gave me the name Ariel. So, I did change my name.
God also told me that instead of walking with my head down, I should walk with my head held high and to smile and wave at the people who watch me.
Okay, that’s the end of this post. It’s been a great birthday. We went to my cousin’s church and God is endlessly pleased with us.
Anyone who knows what love feels like, know what it means to be blessed 🙂
