I am one with God, and I am free!
A skein of geese gliding against a clear blue sky is a simple image of freedom. Their V-shaped formation points to their destination. How often do I yearn for that same sense of freedom?
In Truth, I am free. I may not physically fly above the trees, but I have the freedom of Spirit that allows me to choose my path. I can focus on where I have been, where I am, or where I want to go. I can hold on to fearful thoughts or open my mind to unlimited possibilities.
I choose to allow the spirit of God within to guide me to greater freedom than I can imagine. I am free to live, learn and enjoy all the wonders of this life. I am one with God—no greater freedom exists.
For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm … do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Heaven and Earth
An Interval of Non-time
When the universe reaches a point of maximum expansion, a unique phenomenon will take place. There will be a moment when all laws necessary for the creative maintenance of physical matter and all materializing processes become suspended. Due to the relative velocities of the various star systems, this event will not be experienced simultaneously in all parts of the universe, but will travel as a wave across the sea of creation.
Existing within this ripple of non-time will be the focused conscious attention of the Creator. As it passes through the material realms, it will stay and take up residence in all life forms with circuitry capable of mirroring its essence. This is the moment when the Creator will slip inside Creation; the moment we are attempting to prepare you for.
This is the much misunderstood Second Coming of Christianity. It is the event that primitive civilizations have looked forward to as “the return of the gods.” The Mayans went so far as to pinpoint its actual occurrence in what you would call the year 2011 A.D. Yet while many of your traditions hint at what is about to transpire, none of them have adequately conveyed the magnitude of impact such an event will have. Indeed, no single conceptual structure is capable of conveying the enormity of what is soon to take place.

Field of Play
Any Given Sunday (1999)
Oliver Stone, once considered American cinema’s reigning political provocateur — not the ideal guy for a big football movie, right? Wrong. The director’s flair for the epic serves him well in this look at a turbulent season in the life of a struggling Miami football franchise. So, too, does his feel for the mythic desperation of his characters. Everybody in this movie is at a crossroads of sorts: lonely, broken-down head coach Al Pacino; injured, aging quarterback Dennis Quaid; young, overwhelmed hotshot quarterback Jamie Foxx (then mostly known as a comic actor); and ruthless team-owner and football scion Cameron Diaz. That collective sense of anxiety and hopelessness is just one of the reasons why Pacino’s climactic “Life’s just a game of inches” speech to his troops has earned its place as one of the all-time greatest sports movie speeches.
The American Presidency
Eisenhower’s Military-Industrial Complex Speech, 1961
In his farewell address, Dwight D. Eisenhower warned that the increasing amounts of money spent on defense were creating an all too powerful “military-industrial complex.”
“Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peacetime, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.
“…This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.
