Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: The Predictability of Perception!

Gut instincts! We often her that phrase bantered around here and there.  You hear it in sports allot, and in business too.  And if you have insight you try to take it in and discern it to your benefit.  But what is gut instinct really?  In truth it comes down to perception.  What it is we see or feel about any given subject or matter.  It's all in the eyes......or is it really?  I think true perception can really best be defined as an emotional state.  Something that just kind of takes over our body and then hits us right in the gut!  And then translates to our brain. Like a big stop sign that reads, don't do it! or, full speed ahead;  depending on any given worst, best situation you may, or may not be in. That's why people who are really in tuned with themselves can generally see life pretty clearly.  And the funny thing I've noticed about perception too is it's not necessary society entitled.  In other words money doesn't make you smart.  In fact I've seen it often times make people pretty stupid!  One of the favorite things I like to say is, I think it so, so therefore I am!  And in allot of ways I believe that.  I've seen more done on hope and prayer then some of the best laid plans for success could ever hope to achieve.  And I've seen more people cross doors in faith then any bull doser could ever conquer.  I believe in walking in your own strength.  And I believe that strength should iminate from God! One never knows when you just might come across the misfortune of right.  And one never knows when your best laid desires prove to be the deception of others.  Truth can sometimes be a very peculiar thing.  And understanding it can even be worse.  But sometimes truth can be defined as a necessary evil.  At least some people think so anyway.  And they get up every day with that on their hearts.  That's where perception comes in.  If you know something to be untrue, or not settle well, based on past experiences.  Then the onus is on you to go with your gut instinct.  Because once wronged, twice she!  As it should be.  Because no one should ever have to be subjected to being someones punching bag; or the butt end of a not so funny joke that someone was dead serious about.  Life was meant to be enjoyed; taken in fully!  And suckled for all the beauty of it's worth.  No one should ever be allowed to tell you different. And show you even worse the same.  I believe in a substantiated character.  And truth that carry's it's own weight.  I don't need someone to try and shovel it down my throat.  It'll generally stand on it's own pretty well.  Which will then bring out the merits of it's reality. Thereby giving you the ability to discern the predictability of the perception.  Which in turn will help you keep your path aright!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus! Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: The Odyssey of Presence!

I feel it to be so!  Therefore I am, because it is so.  What is presence?  And how do we measure it's depths.  Where do we go to come to it's understanding.  Or, are we already there in the depths of our mind.  I like people to know my goodness, so I always try to put that foot forward first.  I like people to know I am compassionate;  so no matter what the situation is I always try to understand.  But of course that's my own perception of self.  Some people think I can sometimes be a little disrespectful, or crass as it were.  Which I find ludicrous of course.  I think it's disingenuous of them to think that.  Because I live by the creed of, always treat people like you want to be treated.  But when I do get upset about a matter that I feel isn't right.  I can be pretty forceful about my opinion.   And I wouldn't want to be on the other side of that.  I know it can't be pleasant.  And heaven forbid I view it as a necessary evil to get across a valid point. But sometimes it seems like people just egg you on right to the limit.  Just to see if you will brake.  Well I'm not perfect, and nothing is, save for God!  So sometimes I do!  And then I wonder what's it all really for.   And is the fight really worth it.  Well apparently somebody thought so, or they wouldn't of picked it.  Which brings me to another point about presence.  We're only as good as the reality we project.  So the logic is if you feed on negativity, then that's what comes back to you.  However, the reality is I've known very good people get consumed in a whole lot of ugly because of the people they are surrounded by.  And it doesn't have anything to do with the goodness of their character at all.  Yet they become tarnished just the same.  And sometimes they have to fight for what they believe in when it should be plainly obvious that their cause is most worthy.  Cynicism is a form of presence too!  And there seems to be allot of that going around lately as well.  I mean look at the mess in Washington.  You'd think that a bunch of highly educated people could at some point figure out how to do their jobs smoothly.  But in over two hundred plus years they still can't get it right.  For some reason they don't want to mess up the appearance  of their toughness.  Now that's some fancy journey into nowhere.  Because at the end of the day they all appear to be the best of friends.  It would be hard for me to be that phony everyday!  Yet people do it all the time; even in our everyday lives.   Now who wants to pick a fight!  Because I'm putting my boots on.  But it's not to kick anybody! Or kick anything around for that matter.  I'm thinking maybe I just might take a nice hike on some scenic trail to think about it.  The odyssey of presence that is! Because I find I do my best thinking in the wide open air of free space.   And life has taught me that some fights are best left to God.  So I like to be out in the truth of all the greatness of His vision.  It connects me to the true strength of His power.  Which is the beauty of His presence.   As we become one with each other! and one with one another.  All through the allotted graces of God!  One should never forget that as we get up each day to walk in this created thing of ours we call, presence!  Some people think it's like a magnet.  Others think it's like a hook.  I'm not sure what to think. I just try to walk in the strength of my own presence.  Guided by the love of Jesus!  Embraced in the love of God!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Trusting in Faith!

Have you ever had one of those days when nothing seems to go right?  The kids skip school;  the dog ran away;  and your car won't start for work!  Fortunately for me my kids are grown and gone out of the house.  I don't own a dog.  And my work consist of building this ministry, which I primarily do from home!  But I do remember well many days like those!  Life is kinda funny though sometimes.  Because it never really gives you any true rest.  Old concerns are replaced with new ones.  And new problems always seem to have a funny way of taking on their own life form.  Some days I struggle just to get out of bed.  And then spend have the morning wondering why?  By then I'm behind the clock, so I start to wonder what I should be doing productive for the day.  That's when I realize half the day is over!  So then I sit around and try to get back ahead of the lapse by figuring out what I'm going to do for the second half of the day.  Because half a day well spent is better then a day not spent at all.  Purpose in life is key to success!  But success is often times not measured in terms of achievement, believe it or not!  Because allot of people really don't understand the true meaning of success.  They're often times too busy trying to have it all!  So they never really have an opportunity to know how good it feels.  Truly successful people will tell you they have nothing but time on their hands.  And the real trick is how you manage it!  Unlike what most people like to think, success is really just peace of mind!  It's not having to worry about the everyday trivialities of existence.   And having a firm grasp of how you choose to exist.   I like to keep my success simple.   It makes it easy to keep a track of.  I try to do something kind everyday.  That way it just becomes part of my natural character;  and I don't have to think about it.   I always try to put my best foot forward whenever possible too.  Because the truth is first impressions really do matter.  And if you can make them twice all the better.   It helps let people know that they matter to you.  And the caveat is, with hope and faith, you'll begin to matter to them as well.  Which really makes for a perfect day.  No matter what side of the bed you get up on!  If I can get in a good prayer, then I know I've had a perfect day.  Because I know in faith God will take care of the rest.  So by that standard I like to think I'm pretty successful.  Because it only takes a minute to Pray!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Pillow Talk!

Have you ever had one of those days when you just wake up and wonder what it's all for?  I've been having allot of those days lately.   I mean on the surface things seem relatively alright.  But as I look around and try to understand the world a bit.  And the logic for why people do what they do.  I come to realize that even in the simplest of lives there can sometimes be a great deal of confusion.  I often used to pride myself on being able to figure things out relatively quickly.  Now I often sit around and kinda wonder what it is I'm trying to figure out.  I mean at 51, I'm past saving the world thoughts.  And I no longer have any great illusions of fantastic wealth.   The things I ponder mostly today are the things that really don't seem that important in the bigger scheme of things, relative to an individuals every day living.  Yet the thoughts of what go's through my mind somehow seem very important just the same.  You know a person can go their whole lives and never really understand what it's for.  I've gone at least half mine and I'm still not sure.  I mean I'm sure of my convictions, and what it is I believe in.  Sometimes I'm just not sure of the point of it all.  We all make such a big deal of the things we think are important.  And cling desperately to the things we don't want to lose.  As if the world will come to an end if we don't. When in truth, most people probably don't even care!  So what are we fighting for anyway?  And why?  I like to think that at the end of the day, if I do the right thing I can lay my head down on my pillow at night and sleep in peace.  And that in truth is a real blessing;  the pillow that is.  Because when I go to sleep at night I realize that there are many people around the world who don't have one!  Yet somehow peace always seems to elude me.  And not for any real good cause; or maybe for a great cause.  I still have to sleep on it!  I guess it depends on your perspective.  And how you choose to view the world relative to your own existence.  Maybe that's why I take so much enjoyment in my pillow.  It helps cushion the blow of the reality of life. Which I've come to conclude is generally not fair. Yet we all have to live it.  I'm a man of God.  And I've become a man of prayer!  Believe it or not one is not synonymous with the other.  Hoping in prayer gives me even more peace than sleep!  I just as soon while away my day as such.  Evenings to for that matter.  Just thinking on good things for the good of all.  And leaning on God to do it! Because people often let you down.  And allot of times we let ourselves down too.   So the silver lining really is with God, for the love of Jesus!  And that's where I put my hope, trust, and faith!  It seems to me like the right place for it to be.  Life has taught me that when man fails you, God won't.   It's a sad reality, yet wonderful just the same.  Imagine that!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Seeking Understanding!

To seek understanding, you must first understand what it is you're seeking.  We often times want to do what's best in life without really taking the time to understand who's lives' we're impacting with what we think is best.  I have allot of trouble with people who go around with a self righteous perspective!  Always condescending their views on others.  And never really taking the time to understand the shortcomings of their own existence.  Because they're too busy judging others!  From my perspective if life were perfect, then we could all be born and just go straight to heaven.  But I'm a man of faith, so that's just my view of the generalized world.   I believe we're all sent here to learn something! And what that is I guess we all have to figure out on our own.  It's like that old saying, ".....walk a mile in my shoes!"  Sometimes I have trouble walking a mile in my own shoes.  So I have great respect for people who manage to navigate themselves through troubling times in their own lives.  Because that's really what the shoe theory is all about.   And in fact I happen to be a man of many shoes;  as opposed to a man of many hats.  I like shoes!  They challenge my everyday existence.  I have to think about just what's right for the day before I put a pair on.  Lest I get caught halfway down the road and stub my toe on a rock, all because I didn't put on the right pair of shoes.  I like to have shoes for just about anything!  And I think I do.  Life has taught me that! Some people think I have too many shoes.  But at this point in my life I think I have just enough to know which ones not to wear on any given day.  And that's a great choice to have.  Some people don't have choices;  or the choices they have are slim to none!  And that's a very sad position to be in.  However we must all respect peoples choices in life.  Even if we don't necessarily agree.  People should always have a right to choose.  And we should always respect that right.  For our life isn't their life, and their life isn't ours.  And somewhere in there I think you might find the beauty of God! And learn the temperament's of self. For we are all created as individuals.  So who can truly say which walk is best in a protracted state.  I've heard the greatest things in life have in truth been built on mountains of failure.   So do we dare to fail in order to succeed?  And do we dare to trust beyond the understanding of self?  To care is not just a four letter word.  And understanding, despite what people might think must first start in your heart, not in your mind!  It gives clarity to the truth of ones disposition.  And enlightens you to the compassion of the disposition of others.  One never really knows what trails, and trials, and tribulations life will take us on.  So we should all have reverence in the form of enlightened compassion for the miss steps of others.  Because one never really knows whether they might one day end up in those same set of shoes.  Even if it's not their own pair, they still might have to wear them.  And that could be a painful thought, if your shoes are to big for your feet!

Blessed Brother Sirvante: A Short Bio!

I’m known as Blessed Brother Sirvante!  And I am a brother in the priesthood, in the order of Aaron.  Ordained of God!  What that means is my life primarily evolves’ around spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.  It also makes me a keeper of the flame of God, as in ancient times.  Further I maintain an incense altar, with a flame reflective of the glory of Father God!  It also has a covenant box that contains my personal covenant with Almighty God!  I am also a possessor of the holy spirit of God, through the living spirit of Jesus! 
I was actually born, Anthony Eugene Lee, and later became Anthony Eugene Hunter, while still very young.  However after living a pretty good life for the first quarter century of my existence, while off in college, I began what would eventually become a twenty year addiction to alcohol; drugs; pornography;  and almost every other kind of vice known to man!  My life had dissolved into several minor, and sometimes not so minor scrapes with the law.  I had reached a point in my life whereby I felt about the only thing left for me was the blessed day I could be put out to pasture.  And move on to my heavenly destination.  Because even though I didn’t live a godly existence, I clung hard to the cloth of Jesus!  You know people who live an active sin life like I did, need Jesus more than ever.  Anyway one day I had reached the end of the road for the umpteenth time.  Only this time I was done.  Because I was tired both physically, mentally, and spiritually!   Then I felt the spirit of Jesus talking to me.  So I sung that song, “Jesus Take The Wheel.”  And I meant it!  So He did.  One of the first things He did was hand me over to God!   Then God changed my name and put me on lock down!  That’s how I became Blessed Brother Sirvante.
The Blessing:  One morning while riding on a bus, I was doing a stint in rehab at the time in a town called Marysville, California.  The date was January 5th, 2005.  I know the date because I wrote it down when it happened.  I saw something that later became known to me as the “Christ Starburst.”  It was a bright white hot light that flash burst in the lower eastern part of the morning sky.  As I looked, I knew something hit me.  I later came to realize it was the living spirit of God!  My body felt all tingly.  I also felt like I was in some kind of suspended state of existence.   So when I arrived at my destination, I ran into a bathroom and looked into a mirror to see if I could notice anything  different about me.  That’s when I realized that I had been baptized with the spirit of the holy ghost, through the living spirit of Christ Jesus, backed by the presence of God!  In the mirror I could see a visible almost misty type cloud dancing off my entire body.  And it was spiritually stimulating all my senses.  Right then I knew I had been blessed of God like no other man in history before.   Because of this blessing of the living spirit of Jesus Christ, as manifested through the holy ghost.  I now commune directly with Father God all the time.  Now as a possessor of the holy spirit of God, Father God, has authorized that I may also bless others in the spirit of Jesus, with a life changing blessing for the betterment of all fazes’ of a person’s existence, backed by the power of the holy spirit of God, through the living spirit of   Christ Jesus! 
In September of 2011, what I call “The Christ Star” began appearing in the eastern sky near my house in Sacramento, California.  To this day it occasionally appears in the night sky taking on the form of a massive bright light in the middle of the sky!  Sometimes it’s in the west; and sometimes it’s in the east.  With mine eyes focused on the glory of the truth of God.  Through the visual beauty of Christ, our Lord Jesus.  I am minded to refer to Psalm 89, for clarity of understanding.   Fore Gods’ standing truth is so revealed in verses 34 through 37.  And it reads:  My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of my lips.  Once I have sworn by my holiness;  I will not lie to David:  His seed shall endure forever, and His throne as the sun before Me;  It shall be established forever like the moon, even like the faithful witness in the sky.  Selah.
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!   Blessed Brother Sirvante

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Into the Depths of Truth!

Can rightness be determined by the predisposition of understanding?  And are concepts best left to the conceptualist?  Can we really seek a better day while still stuck in the tomorrow?  Are the depths of understanding best attained from an extenuated positioning?  Can we really hope to find our path in life if we never even see the trail?  What is truth anyway if sometimes you can't even look it in the face!  Are we subject to be prone to a life of disappointment at the mercy of everybody else's clarity of depth;  or depth of clarity as it were.  Can justification be summed up in the desire of will.   Or the will to be justified, summed up in the truth of our desires.  What is want? What is will?  What is desire? And what is truth?  I've often known pain to be the cure for it all.  For it simplifies the position of our truth of want of will.  Which is the base of our desires!  I don't know much about allot of things.  And sometimes too much about nothing!  I wake up each day with a new hope in my heart.  And I try to have a new challenge on my mind.  Yet always mindful of that old saying, how best laid plans can go astray!  I try to follow the golden rule:  Always treat people like you want to be treated!  However in truth, I often come up a little bit short on that deal.  Or so it would seem anyway.  But I guess that too is a question of perception.  Probably somewhere in the category of expectations lost.  Or if you're an optimist which I choose to like to think I am.  You can catalog it in hope renewed.  Because in truth, I find the best peace and happiness in that.  If you give without expectation, well then the bar for fulfillment is pretty low.  But the reward for attainment is extremely high!  And that's where I choose to couch my true hopes!  Love, or adversity;  I take love any day!  Want, or fulfillment;  I choose to be fulfilled, but always in my heart!  Need, or desire;  I take need, it gives me more peace!  If we walk in the truth of our own understandings never caring about the understandings of others.  Then in truth, we go through life never really understanding a thing.  And we miss out on the purist simplest of joys on what life is really supposed to be all about.  Caring for one another, and sharing in the love of our understandings towards each other.  In God we find truth! In Jesus, we find hope and understanding.  In peace we find love.  And in desire we learn acceptance.  We are all no better than our greatest thoughts of yesterday.  And we are all no stronger than our greatest hopes for tomorrow.   Color mine ruby red;  or even crimson blue;  because that is the level of my hope!

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Passions of the Heart!

When I was a young kid coming up, around 7 to 9, I had an unusual passion that some people might find unusual for a kid my age.  I used to love to scroll through development lots and look for small antique bottles.  I would sometimes spend half the day looking for these treasured finds.  There was no sweeter music to me then the sound of a bull dozer clearing a run down piece of property!  Day after day I would eagerly wake up in the morning so I could get to a lot that I had spotted was being cleared to see if the dozing had stopped.  So I could then begin to pursue the passion of my heart!  It was a joy that I never tired of.  I would collect the bottles, and take them home to be cleaned up!  I would then take them to the antique store to see if they had value.  I would bring the bottles in and me and the merchant would sometimes sit around for an hour or so sharing our passion!  Sometimes they would buy them and sometimes they wouldn't.  And sometimes after learning a little about the bottles I just didn't want to sell.  I came to appreciate the uniqueness of the entire process!  Which brings me to my point.  Passions of the heart!  As we go through life it is important to find things in our lives that matter.  And when we do we need to always be true to that truth.  Life is short!  One should always be careful not to get caught short in it.  Passions matter because peoples hearts matter!  One must always be careful to never forget that.  In pursuing your passions you must always be mindful that others are impacted by the passions you pursue.  So always be true to the purity of truth.  And your passions will always be true to you. Which is a measurement of the goodness of your heart.  In God we find the sereneness of the reality of truth.  And the truth of the purity of the very definition of passion it's self!  One can never come to understand the error of their ways, unless they first come to understand the passions of their hearts.  And then they will know the reality of their base of truth!  To be right with passion you must be right in your heart. Like the innocence of a child collecting bottles in a field.  And in doing so coming to understand the simple beauty of truth!  Which are the coals that stoke the passions of the heart.  Paint mine amber red!  For the passion in my heart burns the pureness of truth!  Solidified in the fire. And nurtured in the coals of the pain of my soul.  Only to lift me back to the passions of my heart. Which is the rightness of God!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Uniformity in Peace!

Probably one of the most difficult things in life is to come to terms with the shortcomings of our own existence.  It's so easy sometimes to just point the finger of accusation at others, while at the same time omitting the accusatory of self.  We all have an innate need to be right!  We've all been known at times to hold positions on issues of substance perhaps allot stronger than might otherwise be warranted, given the totality of any given situation.  Yet we persist on, self assured of our own indignation contained within our own directive point of view.  And then we wonder what the confusion is when it comes to igniting the enlightened understandings of others.  If you come from a non-objective perspective.  Then you can't possibly expect an objective response in retort to any given position that has been proffered forward.  From an unbalanced, misplaced, disconcerted state of positioning.   Peace is attained in harmony!  Harmony is attained in uniformity.  Which means that in order to project the righteousness of your positions forward, it is critical that you come from a space of mutually conducive positioning.  You can't turn apples into oranges;  and you can't turn oranges into pears!  But if you put them all in the same bowl they still look pretty good! Because they come from a point of mutual understanding.  Their all fruit!  And they were created to be eaten.  Which gives them harmony in unicen.  People can learn allot from a bowl of fruit. Sometimes it's best just not to say anything.  And let the rhythm of the truth of your own existence speak for it's self.  Because life has a funny way of often times correcting itself! Sometimes we need to just step back and give it a chance.  Because truth will always surface to the top!  One need not prognosticate to obtain any given position.  And one need not always to position themselves in order to project forward a manufactured understanding, that in truth has no bases in the reality of any given situation.  Peace comes from within!  It never needs to be projected out.  Because then it becomes fabrication, manipulation, and wholesale distortion of the right of truth.  Be who you are!  Be consistent!  And always walk in your own truth.  Then others will see the truth in you!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Probabilities and Perception!

Probabilities are often times based on perceptions!  When man first sought to seek the moon he had to first envision the fullness of it's existence.  And then he had to encompass the magnitude of it's reality.  And even still he was no more closer than the existence of his own thoughts.  What he needed was a real plan to achieve his vision.  And a real focus to get there!  So many times in our lives we come from a point of hope without any real perception.  And so many times in our lives we come from a position of existence without any real understanding.  But the truth of a vision is, it seeks you from beyond.  And the truth of reality can often times not be what you perceive it is.  And sometimes truth has nothing to do with what you see.  And sometimes what you see has nothing to do with truth.  So what are the probabilities of understanding things that are beyond our grasp.  Well I guess that depends in large part on the strength of your vision.   And the probabilities that will allow you to get there.  But the question then becomes where is it that you're trying to get?  Because you just might find that you're already there!  Which leads us back to perception.  I'm a man of faith!  So that's the walk I know.  There are allot of things in life I don't really understand;  and even more I don't care to.  There are allot of people who surpass my comprehension simply because of the things they say and do.  There's so much life that has passed me by that I sometimes look at the world as a mirror.  And believe it or not, sometimes I'm scared to look.  But I continue to move forward just the same.  Because that's my level of faith!  It's often times not what I see that gives me comfort!  Rather what I hope for that sustains me.  In all great success there is also great failure.  But the true measure of good is not determined in neither.  And the true measure of a man, or person as it were, is not determined in another either.  I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  We will all leave this world the same way we came in;  and that's basically alone!  The true caveats in life are the rich relationships and the wealth of experiences we gain along the way!  Be they good, bad, or indifferent.  What we do, and how we do it impacts not only our lives, but the many lives we pass along the way on our journey back home as well.  If I were to have one wish, I'd wish people would be more mindful of that!  And in faith reality and truth may once again become one!

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Insightful Thinking!

State of mind!  Or, the process of thought.  To which the greater evil?  Or, to which do we find the greater good?  State of mind is often a legal term used in court proceedings to determine the intent of the perpetrator.  Or  the assailant as some might like to say.  What people think and how they act on  what they think, is absolutely critical in determining a person's motives for why they do what they do.  Have you ever heard the term, the devil made me do it!  It's terminology often used by people to cover up their inappropriate acts.  Or to somehow try to justify a central character weakness.  Truth is, we all carry fallibility on our backs like a snow storm in the middle of Alaska!  Which brings up a whole nother set of issues and questions.  The first one is, if you didn't like snow storms what are you doing in Alaska.  And the second one is, if you had to be there why didn't you take precautions to stay out of the storm!  Like in a desert oasis, proper preparation is the key to survival.   Otherwise you might get burned!   And there might not be anybody there to help you out.  I can't count the many times that I've woken up in need of help, only to look around and find myself very much alone!  To this day I have yet to think of a more empty feeling.  Have you ever been in a crowd and yet you feel you're standing there all by yourself.  No help; no aid; no comfort!  Just you and the lonely recesses of your own mind.  Making peace with self is probably one of the most difficult things a person ever has to do.  But it is critically necessary if we are to survive and continue to move forward in an ever changing and complex world. Harmony and unity can often times, and should go hand and hand!  It's hard to understand others unless we understand the weakness's in ourselves first.  Because when we can concur our own internal conflicts then we can approach life no longer from a position of weakness;  but rather from a position of strength! Because the darkness from within has fallen pray to the victory of the light!   Revelation is little more then seeing what is, based on what's to come.   And when we figure that out then we can move forward as a person, as a people, and as a society that prides it's self on the humanitarian aspects of a better tomorrow!  For yesterday is lost;  and today has already gone;  but in tomorrow we may always know the fulfillment of the hopes for today.  Find peace in your hearts, and you may find the beauty of a golden horizon shining bright on today; and building bridges for tomorrow.  And let the light be your crown! For God's glory is always a directive best understood from the head up!  We must all bow down to lift ourselves up to glory.   For it has forever been known that in defeat, we often find our greatest victories!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante, In: Seeking the Sublime!

Sometimes as we go through life, we find ourselves seeking a place where we can have a collective perception of our true destiny from all parameters of our existence. Everybody likes to put their best foot forward.  And everybody likes to be seen in the best possible light.  The challenge is to properly place yourself in a position to be receiving of the blessing.  It's hard to understand the goodness of God, while basking in the pits of darkness!  In 2nd Corinthians, Chapter 8, verse 8, it reads:( I am not ordering you to do this.  I am simply testing how real your love is by comparing it with the concern that others have shown.)
Life is a continuum!  And the people in it come and go.  But there is one thing that remains steadfast in all your existence.  The love of truth as brought forward through the inner depths of your soul.  I exist because I am; I am because I exist! When you reach inside yourself, and find the truth of the beauty of God!  Others are able to find God's truth in you.  Sometimes we have to ask ourselves, what are we really fighting for?  If the price of redemption is already payed for the love of Christ Jesus! Why are you still grasping at the air?  So many great moments in life have been lost because of  overreaching. And so much happiness has been destroyed in the hope of over seeking.  It's funny how you can just wake up one day and find that everything you thought was secure is just gone.  It's happened so many times in my life that I just began to accept it as part of my existence.  But a funny thing happened when I did.  I came to the realization that I was alright independent of others!  And I really didn't need anybody to substantiate me.  For in my heart right down to the core of my being, I knew that I was sustained in God!  And that knowledge allowed me to once again love freely.  Because it is based in the truth of  self!  Not in the perceptions of what of others!  Loving God will take you to places you never expected to go. His truth can cut you right to the core.  And then He will take you places greater than you ever expected to be!  To be sublime is not a passive existence.  In fact quite the contrary.  To be sublime is to take in all the fullness of life, and maintain the grace to keep you right in the spirit of God!  Which will allow you the parameters of the serenity we all so desperately crave. The scriptures say in  John, Chapter 15, verse 3: You are already clean because of what I have said to you.
Bless you all in the name of Jesus! Blessed Brother Sirvante

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: Perception and Acceptance!

Have you ever had one of those days when everything seems to be perfect, yet you're still not quite sure.  As we go through life we so often times try to do our best to be recognized for the good works of the spirit.  We trust in judgement always for a better day!  Our hopes! Our dreams! And all things we hold near and dear can sometimes be summed up in the simplicity of perception.  Like Apples and Pears; or Oranges and Tangerines.  Both fruits; both similar! Yet not quite the same.  Can expectations be summed up through the acceptances in life we make.  Can positions be ratified through innate understanding?  Are we not better to look for the right in all things?  Forsaking what appears to be adverse.  Can time really be the cure to a contrived state of serenity and bliss!  Is it really better to sometimes just truly go it alone.  Are our tomorrows really what's left of our yesterdays!  Is hope better spent on those who care?  Or should we extend the hand of the equality of love to all those who appear needy to receive it!  You often hear people who go along their way in life say, it's better to give than to receive!  I happen to be one of those who truly believes that! When we give to others ir-regards of our selves, our spirits are refreshed.  And our lives are renewed in faith! The teachings of Christ are not only based in perception, but rather acceptance as well.  His walk to the River Jordan, where he was refreshed in God!   His travels to Galilee, where he healed the masses!  And His prayers in faith at the Mount of Olives.  Where He pleaded with God for redemption to receive the blessing of grace.  Only  to be manifested in grace himself!  There are so many things in the world that seem way far beyond our  comprehension.  And yet we acquire to know why!  Even in the face of the dimmest of hope.  Because like sitting on a porch!  Some see it as a stoop;  while others might call it an easement; and even others still something a bit fancified like a veranda.   But in truth they're all the same thing.  A place of observation and relaxation!  I call my porch a veranda!  Because I like the feel of the open space.  And the thought takes me places I might otherwise not be able to go!  But I guess when we think about it, we're kinda already there.  We just need to focus on which is the right direction.  On my account I choose to keep my focus on God, for the love of Christ Jesus!  My lord, savior, and King!  Because in truth we will always find the light!  And in God we will always find the grace of Jesus!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante,

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On Trusting in Faith!

So many times in our lives we lose sight of the bigger picture!  We get caught up in the quagmire of discernments between right and wrong.  We question our judgements,  as well as the judgements of others.  And we wonder what's it all for.  How did we come to be in this place.  And where is the rhyme and reason for the things that befall our simplest understandings.  Is there really logic in an illogical state.  Well I guess that would depend on your own level of understanding.  Can we really reach good from two points to right.  How does truth prevail if we're swimming in deception.  Can the wisdom of the ages really discern two parts to the whole.  Have we come this far only to return to a space not of our own understanding.  I've often heard it said one in the hand is worth two in the bush.  Well now I say to you, that really depends on what's in your hand.  Sometimes possessions are better contained in freedom.   And sometimes freedom is the best thing to possess.  It might not seem like much, but it's open and unencumbered.   Sometimes the trivial things in life turn out to be the most valuable.  And often times the things we miss turn out to be the most important.  When we seek to attain a better level in the grasp of the reality of the divines of perception, in relation to the goodness of all things appropriate to the betterment of our own placements;  projected out to the goodness of ourselves as perceived through others.   Based in the truths of real life's givings.  Sometimes we just need to push through the pain.   Run in the rain!  And dance even when our feet are too sore to walk.  Sometimes we just need to laugh when we feel like crying.  Smile when the world is frowning.  And just keep swimming even when our feet are so wet that we can't touch the ground.  Sometimes we just need to trust in something bigger than ourselves.  Even when reason tells us we might be able to do it alone.   Because there is nothing bigger than the openness of space.  And there is nothing bigger than what feels that space then the grandness of God!  He is in all your perceptions!  All your understandings!  And all things that matter when it's all said and done.  So walk in your own peace. Receive with the openness of your own understanding.  Be good within yourself.   And trust in the rightness to get you back to the light.   Even when darkness says you're wrong.  And what you think doesn't make sense.  Because the truth of sense is what you perceive.  And what you perceive directs your level of faith.  All things good are equitable to right.  And all things right are equal to faith.  Discernment is not a two way street.  And truth will always carry it's own day.  Fore in a measurement of faith, trust will always carry you through the day.  Trust first in God!  And His truths will guide you through even the darkest of days!
Bless you all in the name of  Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: A Spirit of Faith!

Oh, the frivolousness of youth!  Oh, if it were to just be young again!  To play in the meadows, and catch frogs in the brook.  To sing simple songs that rhyme and give us such hope.  To while away the days just enjoying being out in the sun.  Taking in the day like clouds gently breezing across the sky.   If life were only as simple as ice cream on a sunday afternoon.  Or a walk in the park with your very best friend.  If only we could harness the moments so precious lost!  If only we could bend time back to a more radiant state.  These are some of the markers of the goodness in life.  These are some of the indicators of time well spent.   Do we dare not believe and seek to such new faith.   Do we dare not encompass the moon, yet magnify to the beauty of the stars.  Can we really hope to see the rainbow that comes with the start of any, great new beginning.  Is there really a golden layer that awaits us all at the end of a perfect day.  Or are we only so much dust in the wind only meant to be cast away.   At some point in our lives we all reach a point of accepted understanding.  At some point in our lives we all seek to do what's truly right!  Some of us later than others! But at some point in our lives we all seek to get there.  Which brings us back to faith!  And the depths of our understanding towards the goodness of all.  I once knew an atheist who had a deathbed conversion.  I can honestly say, I never lost faith!  Faith is what's solidified in the crosses of what's perceived to be wrong!  Faith is what's understood, when nothing else seems to be right!  Faith is the substance of things not seen, nor heard, yet realized to be true.  Faith is what get's us through the day, even when the world says you're wrong.   And faith is what sustains us, even in our darkest hour!  Can we truly expect to rise and fall without ever perceiving the contours of the right of will, as it pertains to the relevance of growth.  Faith is truly our friend;  and mercy is it's sister; while grace is it's guide.  Seek always first the light, and darkness will pass you by! Walk always in faith, and surpass your next perceived destination!  For faith comes from understanding the greatness beyond ourselves!  And in faith that greatness will move us forward.   Because that's the true measure of faith!  And we should always forever be mindful of the teachings of our lord, Christ Jesus!  Who lamented in all His doings;  Faith without works is dead!  If we are to pray, we must always pray in faith.  And then get busy on the work we prayed for.   And in doing so achieving the greatest of faith.   The faith in God, to make all things right!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante; On: My Father, God!

Do you love in truth?  Do you care for things that seem not to matter to others?  Are not all things relevant to the beauty in life.   Are not all things valued on the measure of right!  Is not the sun just as pretty as the moon.  And the stars, the universe.  Does not harmony breath life like the presence of it's own existence.  And a tree just as precious as the birds in the sky.  Does not love grow fonder as the heart grows in depth.  And all knowledge become equitable to the goodness of your character.  We sometimes find value in the most trivial of things.  And one mans trash, is another mans treasure.  Can not beauty just exist in the realms  of it's own being.  Is substantiation something we can only find in others?  Or rather, is not all good correlated to it's base!  I believe in light even in the face of darkness.  And I know this truth from my Father, God!  I believe in second chances!  Sometimes third, and even fourths!  I know in my heart there is good in everybody;  if you only give it a chance to come out.  I believe in the rule of understanding:  No one is greater then the parts for which they exist.  And no part is bigger then the simple understandings of the rightness of ways.  When the day is done, and the sun is set.  I like to know my day mattered.  And I like to know the people in it mattered too!  I don't understand complexities beyond rational comprehension.  And I believe good sense is still measured from the heart.  I know all life matters;  and all things in life matter to.  Friendships should never be dismissed;  And family should always matter to.  You're only as good in life as your last good gesture.  And if you don't want to do something from the heart, do it from there any ways!  Because that's where real truth illuminates from;   and God finds the depths of the breath of His glory!  Fore in rightness we come to know the fullness of the kindness of others.  And learn a little bit about the kindness within ourselves.  Which brings us back to God!  And not just God, the creator. But God, the Father!  And in Christ we see His love, His compassion, His understanding.  And all things right and beautiful in the universe!  In Christ Jesus, we see ourselves as we learn to see the beauty in others.  And in others we come to understand the truth of the glory of God.  Fore who could create such expanses of differences of perspectives;  yet unionize them all in the efforts they project, towards the fondness of His right of existence.  No one!  Save for, Father God!   These are the lessons of one child to another. From my Father, God!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante, On: The Hidden Depths of Rightness!

Most of us at some point in our lives have been involved in some sort of discussion; or confronted with some sort of issue in our life whereby, we're trying to express a point. But the person listening just isn't getting what the point is.  You explain yourself; and then they explain themselves;  and you express your position as they continue to expound on there's.  And all the while you're both thinking, I know my position is right, if only I can get them to listen.  Then surely they would understand the rightness of it all.  Well here is a news flash for you: rightness is often found in the listening!  You can talk sometimes until you're blue in the face, and some people just won't get it.  And then you have those who don't really want to get it.  So they always pretend you're wrong.  You can tell them the sun is orange, and they will argue with you for half a day saying, the sun is yellow.  And the whole point is it's beautiful, no matter what color you think it is.  Life would be so simple if we could all just say what we mean, and mean what we say.  But for some reason simplicity manages to elude most of us.  At least that's what I heard anyway!  The rule of thumb, and the dagger in hand.....To which do we give the greater understanding?  I don't know, but I think I would pay more attention to a guy poking a knife at me, as opposed to his thumb.  But at the same time I'd be thinking about the rule of law, and how I can get to it.  Now that would be an interesting conversation to have.  He says, "I just wanted to get his attention."  And I say, "well I didn't like his thumb poking at my face."  In the end it doesn't really matter because the truth got lost some place in the fight.  In prayer we come to understand the depths of the knowledge of the wonder of the goodness of God.  And in listening, we come to understand the true depths of right.
Bless you all in the name of  Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante; In Seeking The Light!

Shall we travail the height's of different sight's, yet never comprehend the distance of the depths we're in.   Are we to be understood not for the we, we are yet as what were and what could be.  Do the days we spend transcend the depths of our minds past the grasp of our spiritual parameters, only to bring us into the light of our most real perceptions.  Or perhaps the things we seek to indulge the most, are little more then optical illusions across the cascades of our minds.   Only to bring us back to a place that the touching of our senses could never really grasp.   And yet, we quest for the hope of what could be real in obstruction of what is the true path to directing the right of your continence back to the place of it's most preferred position.  For in the light all things understand to truth.  And in the light the reality of man's base existence shines forth like a beacon to the sun.  I used to have this favorite song who's lyrics went, " I can see clearly now the rain is gone! I can see all obstacles in my way."   Well true clarity really comes from the light.  Which is with God!   So let that guide and direct your path in all things you say and do.   And Father God will take care of the rest!  For it is His truth that actualizes faith!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante; On: Evolving into faith!

Adversity...Strife....Tribulation.....and Confusion!  Sometimes the substance of our everyday world.  Sometimes the reality of our everyday life.  Friends; they come and go.   Sometimes the winds of change continue to blow even before we can put up a tent.  And we sometimes wonder why the sun continues to shine everywhere but on us!  Sometimes we wish we had a rock just to knock it out the sky!  Because in our hearts all we ever feel is the rain.  Some distant storm that keeps on bounding!  And never seems to go away.  We scream for mercy, but it never seems to be at hand.  Life becomes like some desert wilderness.  And you're that one speck of sand that can't get out the whirl wind!  Where can we go when all faith is lost?  How can we continue when the hope we sought estranges us, like a butterfly leaving the cocoon.   Our mind tells us that there's got to be a better way.  Yet our heart continues to beat two steps to the left.  Can passion rule the day?  Can life's forces really shift in mid stream, like the changing of an ocean wave.   Is hope yet lost only to be found?  Can our life evolve like circles; yet see our way straight to the finish!  I've often heard it said if you want to climb a mountain, then first you have to try.   No one get's to the finish if they never enter the race.   And if they never enter the race, they can never hope to win.   The truth of victory, is it's in the trying.  And the truth of life, is it's in the faith.  You can't live if you don't live, so to speak.   And you can't have faith if you don't believe.   It starts with yourself!  Turn first to God in all things of substance.  And he will give you the substance you need to get through all things.  And that's a true measure of Faith!
Bless you all in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Blessed Brother Sirvante; On: The Diverse Nature of Right!

In political speak you will often hear a politician say, we can agree to disagree.  In order to invoke some kind of diplomatic cure for a perceived misunderstanding.   When in fact they really might not agree on anything at all!  The whole point is really just to try to move the whole process forward;  or discussion as it were.  But can anything really ever expect to be resolved that way.   Does it matter who's right and who's wrong?  Or is it simply a question of perspective?  Is it possible that both sides could be right?  Depending on what your agenda is, it is possible.   And if that's so, well then what's the point of discussion?   Jesus Christ, was crucified on a cross!  Now let's examine for a moment the many rights in that.  And sometimes the best way to understand right is to understand from a point of wrong.  Now according to the law, the Jewish people were right to demand His life.  Because He violated a biblical principal of theirs.  Even though under the Roman law, according to Pontius Pilate, He wasn't in violation of anything.  Never the less he appeased them in their law.  Now Jesus begged for God's relief in prayer on the eve of His crucifixion.  Yet God remained stead fast in this requirement that He must make this sacrifice for the good of all man kind!  And Jesus, explained to His disciples that the prophecy must be fulfilled in order to gain the redemption of the soul of man.  For God had removed His favor.  And held man in a condemnable state.  So the sacrifice was necessary to lift man back to grace!  And God's promise and requirement supper seeded man's understanding.  Because in fact in death mankind would receive eternal life!  For their sins being washed in the blood of Jesus Christ!  The truth in life is that we all come and go in grace.  And it is God's grace which sustains us!  So we must never forget that when interacting with one another.  And there in you will find the nature of right!

On: Nurturing The Spirit!

We to often go through life without ever really taking the proper time to figure out where we came from, and where we're going.  Our lives sometimes become a jumbled mess of what if's, and what could of's.  We get discouraged!  We fall into despair!   And sometimes we even lose our barrings on where we really want to go with our lives.  We seek endeavors that prove themselves out to be pointless, or miss guided at best.   We search the universe and the stars for some kind of deeper depth of understanding.  All the while hoping to find something more central to the existence of us!   Could it be we are truly alone when we are lonely.  Is there truth in the thought that in the end we all must face our own short comings?  And if so, why?  Can there not be a better way to meet two parts to the middle?  Does our understanding really limit us to the projections that are wholly contained in the centralization of self?  Or can we look forward to a grander day. A day when freedom of the spirit will release us to a better way.  We must all be willing to not only search the inner depths of our own understanding;  but rather, and including the inner depths of our own perception as well.  Because seeing is two parts to the third part of believing.   You can't get to destiny if you don't know where destiny is.   Yet we don't know destiny until we get there.  Or so it seems.  I've heard it said that sometimes we create our own destiny.  By our ways, and conducts, and actions!  I think there's probably more truth in that then not.   As we seek to search for a better self.   One that's independent of the shallowness of our own understanding.  Something that perhaps truly might lift us to a better day, in a better kind of way.  I think we should all remember that, there is truth in God!  And God's truth is absolute.   Wholly separate and apart from ourselves.   Yet with the power to lift us to a better day in a better way.  In truth we find peace!   In truth we find God!  Pray on it!

Blessed Brother Sirvante: The Complexities of Despair!

Have you ever had one of those days when the world's just been beating you up so hard that, you wake up in the morning and pat yourself down for bullet holes, and to make sure you're still her for one more run at the good fight!  Well let me tell you I've been in many fights in my life.  And the one thing I've come to understand is they rarely end up like we anticipated they would.  In fact allot of the time we end up with egg on our face, and a big beach towel size happy face rag to wipe off the humiliation in hopes that nobody really noticed the stupidity  of our cause.  Like the Britt's  say, "All in good fun laddies!"  I guess that's easy to say if you're half way through your third pint of beer.  But what about us everyday suffering folk!  The ones that get up everyday to be the grind to provide for an lethargic  reception at best.  Or those that have become so buried in their despair that the world doesn't even notice them anymore.  And what about the children we pass along the way of our everyday existence.  Were their faces clean?  Were they smiling?  Did the mother seem at ease as she hustled by to her next destination still two days behind the first appointment of call.  Did you even bother to notice.  There is a crises out there.  People are crying!  They're hungry!  And everyday they die just a little bit more.  Kinda like you when you're in the darkness of the throws of your bedroom, and you think either nobody is paying attention.  Or even worse nobody cares!  Well friends I'm here to tell you, you got a friend in Jesus!  He won't ask you any questions.  Won't grill you about your logic that got you to a place you never thought you'd be.  He won't even say, I told you so.  In fact the only thing that He will ask of you as He heals you a new, is to do like kind to others by the goodness of your grace!   Do we become so consumed with our selves that we can't see past our noses to feel and share in the pain of others.  Or have we become so jaded as a society that by not making the plight of others matter, we've reached a point of indifference within the parameters  of our own existence; thus diminishing  the hope of rescue from our own afflictions for lack of ability to see past our selves long enough to aid in the affliction of others, thereby bringing true continuity into our own existence.  Thus creating a sustainable balance wholly ratified in the goodness of the spirit of God, to take you into a blessed continuum of new heights.  For want of recognition for the stabilized balance of good meets good on an equal plain of equality!

Blessed Brother Sirvante: To What Spirit of a Man!

Well I spent this evening listening to some Johnny Cash, and reflecting on all the many different aspects of mans multi-dimensional existence, and personality.  I mean it's easy to be thoughtful and courteous when things are going well.  And we're breezing through our everyday existence with seemingly hardly a care.  But what about when life leads us into the trenches.  When we're confronted with issues beyond our capacity to grasp; or even comprehend them.  When the world just starts to cave in all around us.  And the only thing we have left for a life boat is a faded smile, and an old rusty tooth brush.  And the tent in our rose colored glasses have all faded into misty dust, that nobody cares enough anymore to even bother to help and wipe away!  But everyday you still have to get up because you still have to try and live.  Even though life seems to have left you behind.  And your only friend is your own shadow on a cracked sidewalk.  With workers standing by but no one to hold the sign.  Repairs on the way!  Thank God for Jesus!  I've seen grown men rescued from drowning;  And even though it's not considered manly, it was in their own tears.   And I've seen children given new life.  Because the young ones they had, had become too old.  And old folks dancing like young folks, all for the love of Jesus!  Have you ever heard of the term fair weather friend?  Most of us have had; or have one.  And if you're honest with yourself, in the back of your mind you think that it will be a great day, when you can have an opportunity to show them some fair weather.   I mean the kind with a big bright sun, and white puffy clouds.  With a nice windstorm to cap it off.  And then one day that friend calls you with a crises.  And the first thing that comes to your mind is what can you do to help.  Because the truth of the matter is, most people want to treat others like they want to be treated.  And if they don't they should!  Life is never as long as we'd like for it to be, and even shorter then it should be.  We should all take a little time to understand what truth in Christ is.  Because it's not the smiley happy go lucky faces that you see when your life seems perfect.  Truth in Christ are the happy, sincere, kind faces that you see when your life is in disaster.  We should all strive to live our lives in the truth of Christ!  And know that God is with you!

Blessed Brother Sirvante: On Adversity!

Because of our innate nature to self solve many issues that confront us in our daily lives, we often find ourselves isolated, bogged down, conflicted, and confused, on matters that would otherwise;  given a clearer objective view might readily have a solution right at hand.   Thereby alleviating the need for so much unnecessary anguish in our lives.  Have you ever had one of those days when things just don't seem to go right, no matter how hard you try.  I mean, you think on it, and think on it!  And still the solution just seems miles out of reach.  So then you pray, and you think some more;  and you pray, and you think some more.  And just when you're about to say forget it!  The answer appears right before your face.  That's something I like to lovingly call, "faith walking!"  Because no matter what your problems may seem to be in life know this: God always has the answer!  We just have to have the patience sometimes to wait on it.  So the next time someone catches you deep in thought, and it seems like your world might be caving in.  Just smile and say, hey I'm faith walking!  And you'd be amazed at how much grace God will extend you along the way!  Because no matter what the problem is, Father God always has the solution!  It's just a question of FAITH!

Blessed Brother Sirvante; On: To Walk In Peace!

Many times in our lives we face adversity, disappointment, confusion, and deception.    Sometimes even from the very people we trust the most.  It becomes difficult after awhile to know who you can and can't trust when life thrust these sorts of circumstances your way.  It would be easy if we could just close the door sometimes and all our troubles would just go away.  Because the pain of truth is sometimes just too hard to look at!  But in truth, that is when we need to pay attention the most.   God doesn't guarantee you that life will always be perfect.  And you can just dance right through it without a care in the world.  But what He does promise is an opportunity to see things right.  The choice is yours whether you want to look or not.  Offence is easy!  It's as near as the next breath out of your mouth.  The trick to success is to process the short comings in life;  squeeze them for the positive.  And then move forward in faith, knowing full well in your heart you've given all things an honest look!  No one could expect more.  And God would never ask for more.  Being true to others starts with being true to yourself.  You can't climb a mountain if you're always giving away your shoes.  But you can give someone a hand on your way up!  And to know the opportunity is there no matter what the circumstances, should always give you peace.
Bless you in the name of Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

I think one of the most difficult things in life for most people is reaching out.  I mean we all like to think that we would support a good and noble cause.  Or rally to the right in times of disaster,  or crises.  However the plight of the common man is becoming so common that we hardly pay attention anymore.  Every day Americans are loosing their homes, families are braking up, and the infrastructure of this great nation just isn't the same anymore.  Our spirits scream for substantiation as we reach to the next up and coming politician for some ray of hope.  And our causes all seem centralized instead of expansive oriented.  Help thy fellow man has become a byword even in the thoughts of most agencies that are in trusted to do just that.  If we are to sustain our selves as a civilized society in representation of the true goodness of man.  Then we must all remember that we are no greater then the least of us in representation.   A close family member once told me when I was up and coming.  And had developed a talent to such a point that I was beginning to get public recognition.  His words of wisdom and admonition were, " Treat people like you want to be treated!"   In these times of term oil, and distress.  Truer words were never spoken!  I sometimes will give my last dollar to a stranger on the street if I think they're truly in need.  And it's not because I want to be noble, or give myself some sort of perverse adulation.  It's because I know one day I might wake up and find myself just like that person.  I've seen well educated people in homeless shelters, soup lines, and living in tent's in the bushes.  And for no good reason sometimes except for the fact that time just past them by.  My call to you is next time you pass somebody who may be down on their luck is to just share a smile.  Let them know they're still human!  And their life matters.  And you just might be reminded how much your life matters too.  And that's the best way to reach out!
Bless you all in the name of  Jesus!  Blessed Brother Sirvante.

Our Better Angels!

Sometimes when we get tired it's easy to forget the base of our spiritual substantiation.  Which, if we're not careful can easily lead us astray.   We must always remember if the journey was easy we would have a perfect world..   The problems we perceive to be the context of our in ability to move forward, and thus stifle our true spiritual quest to righteousness.  And peace in harmony with the divineness  of the recognized glory of Father God, can best be summed up as little more then a trifling spirit.  With no real power of direction except for the energy you choose to expend in giving it recognition.  We all must learn to look to our better angels for the truth in guidance and understanding.  Thereby making us right before God, in Christ!
                                                                                 Bless you all in the name of Jesus!
