Let me not forget my function.
Today’s idea is merely another way of saying “Let me not wander into temptation.” The purpose of the world you see is to obscure your function of forgiveness, and provide you with a justification for forgetting it. It is the temptation to abandon God and His Son by taking on a physical appearance. It is this the body’s eyes look upon.

Christ Consciousness and Humanity
Trust in God for your survival needs and you will neither starve nor be found lacking. See first the Kingdom of Heaven, and through that seeing, you will notice survival factors you had previously overlooked. They are too close to your eyes. Your mind is still looking for complexities. Throughout history, you have been struggling so hard to survive, by your definition of survival, that you have forgotten why you want to survive. When you rediscover why you want to survive, you will rediscover me. I am your reason for survival. I am the spark of life within you, expressing my universality through your environment. It is I who want to survive and find expression through you.
You want to stay on Earth because it is the most beautiful spring morning of all your history, and you are in love — in love with the spirit that sings in your heart, in love with the glorious planet that clothes you in her matter.

Field of Play
Movies sometimes treat baseball with hushed reverence, but never was the game depicted with more majestic grandeur than in this loose adaptation of Bernard Malamud’s novel. Robert Redford plays the once-promising phenom Roy Hobbs, who, in his mid-30s, finally gets his shot at the big leagues after disappearing from the scene for mysterious reasons. The book was a cautionary tale about succumbing to earthly desires; Redford and director Barry Levinson instead pay homage to God-given talent, riding Randy Newman’s misty-eyed score to a finale that still produces goose bumps. The Natural isn’t about realism — it’s too busy articulating the awe we feel watching mere mortals perform preternatural athletic feats.

What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate
LONDON (The Borowitz Report) 5.31.16 —The theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking angered supporters of Donald J. Trump on Monday by responding to a question about the billionaire with a baffling array of long words.
Speaking to a television interviewer in London, Hawking called Trump “a demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator,” a statement that many Trump supporters believed was intentionally designed to confuse them.
Moments after Hawking made the remark, Google reported a sharp increase in searches for the terms “demagogue,” “denominator,” and “Stephen Hawking.”
“For a so-called genius, this was an epic fail,” Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said. “If Professor Hawking wants to do some damage, maybe he should try talking in English next time.”
Later in the day, Hawking attempted to clarify his remark about the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee, telling a reporter, “Trump bad man. Real bad man.”
