Religion: Blueprint or Way of Life?

“The Kingdom of God is inside/within you (and all about you), not in buildings/mansions of wood and stone. (When I am gone) Split a piece of wood and I am there, lift the/a stone and you will find me.” (Stigmata 1999 Film)

Alright. Now many may have never knew these similarities between religions, but through my research, I’ve come to believe that religion is a blueprint. People spend so much time on the ‘savior’ that they do not pay attention to the teachings or words. Sometimes God is almost push to the background. Like this quote from the movie ‘Stigmata’ God is within you.

These are just my thoughts. What is your take on religion? Blueprint? Or way of life?

Drop a comment and let me know.

Peace, One love

 

This is what God Said to Each of The Zodiac Signs

This was really interesting.

I am a Capricorn and it was pretty spot on.

 To you Capricorn I ask the toil of your brow, that you might teach people to work. Your task is not an easy one, for you will feel all of humankind’s labors on your shoulders; but the yoke of your burdens contains the Responsibility of your Brothers and Sisters, which I put into your hands.

…. And Capricorn stepped back into place.

“Mirror Mask” Poem by Kevin Prince

This poem was inspired by a Jean Michel Basquiat Painting 14095814_10205512311446127_2565655585542705167_n

My hate for you is more so an idea
Not the distaste of your existence.
I’m forced to come face to face with my demons,
as their shadows trail in the distance.
Mark my words with anxiety and confusion
My paint brush dipped in the universe to paint a black image.
I thought there was something wrong with me because my words are two fold.
Not fitting in the mold or lines you surround me with like caged blind birds with no assistance.
My center folds because my centerfolds stick out like a sore thumb .
They are numb from decaying while on display.
My truths are uncomfortable but they entertain you.
Just laugh, like the voices in my head at my dismay.
What could pull me out of my sleep at 4 a.m?
Can’t i have a little more time in my gutter garden?
Before the day buffers like interrupted signals crossing paths with others walking.
I made a mask out of your thoughts of me.
In some ways, it brings me peace.
Everyday i add a new layer to this mask and wait for it to harden.
My heart knows nothing but feels everything.
Who knew a curse could be rewarding.
-Kevin Prince

these are two cool. I’ve been researching for a few years on cool little dwellings and studios. Get me a nice acre or less. There are a few lots by where I live that were empty and in less then a month a whole house is built on it. What would your dream acre consist of?
