My first outdoor cooking memories are full of erratic British summers, Dad swearing at a barbecue that he couldn’t put together, and eventually eating charred sausages, feeling brilliant.

It’s the simple things in life that make it amazing, but in the expectations of greatness it all goes up in flames.


The best practice is to always do your best without expectations. In such you’ll find that even simple things feel like victories for there is never any failure. Failure is and always will be an expectation that is beyond your control. Nothing is certain. The greater the expectations the greater the misery. Nothing will ever match up to what you envision and you will almost always be let down by the results. This is best said in the Bible in the book of Luke.

Luke 14: 8-11

8              When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;

9              And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.

10           But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.

11           For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

A wise woman puts a grain of sugar into everything she says to a man, and takes a grain of salt with everything he says to her.

It’s an odd thing to realize that gender is not specific in the Bible for all humans are men called “Adam”. Gender in the “Book of Secrets” is an attribute of masculine or feminine qualities of each person and not a superior or inferior relationship of sexes. We are all equals in the eyes of God and until we see that, we will forever be lost in a world of blind ignorance and fear.

A must read to those in need of a true friend when you need to remember you are important and loved.

It’s about surfacing things once believed long dead, but the dead must raise before rapture can begin…. At least so the Bible says 😊

Sometimes when a person is broken inside, it doesn’t manifest all at once, or show itself as a daily issue of depression or anxiety. Sometimes, it can sneak up and blindside you all at once and just when you thought you were dealing with these past issues so well, you feel like you are right back at square one.

Anyone who has read my journey knows my story. I spent the better part of 15 years in a physically and emotionally abusive marriage. It wasn’t until I realized that I was worth something that I changed that situation and left….because I knew he wasn’t going to change (and maybe one of these days I’ll share why some women stay in abusive relationships). The physical abuse had diminished to almost nothing at the end, but the emotional abuse never did. And even then, there were threats of a return of the…

Eskimo: ‘If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?’ Priest: ‘No, not if you did not know.’ Eskimo: ‘Then why did you tell me?’

It is NOT your doctrine but your judgments that makes you accountable.

For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.


Winston Churchill


Leviticus 11:1-7

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.


Choices without care:

  • If feet symbolize your choices then a parted foot is a balanced choice without excess; not parting too far in either extreme of neither right nor left. (Eccl 7:15-18)
  • If to “chew the cud” is to ruminate than it is to consider, reflect and ponder upon your choices you have made.
  • Then the pig knows what is right from wrong but cares nothing for the consequences of their actions so long as its hungers were gratified.
  • Abstain then from adding this spirit body to the self by eating of its attributes.

I would rather be the best nobody I can,
than to be crowned the king of the pigs.

If you get stuck, get away from your desk. Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don’t just stick there scowling at the problem. But don’t make telephone calls or go to a party; if you do, other people’s words will pour in where your lost words should be.


Hilary Mantel

Imagine life as a pie, it’s always great in moderation.

Now the true soldiers of Christ must always be prepared to do battle for the truth, and must never, so far as lies with them, allow false convictions to creep in.



It seems there’s always some creep just lurking in the crowd.

Sometimes the best way to understand a thing is to talk it out with another person. Teresa and I do a lot of Bible studies using the “Book of Secrets” method and it sharpens our understanding of God’s Word with such clarity. This process of discovery is one of our greatest joys we share together and so we thought it might be nice to share our musings together to help you understand the same. Again you need to look at the Bible as if the world is really you and the stories are all about ideas that are in you and not as people. The whole Bible is written in living allegories and knowing the way to see it and read it changes everything. The real secret is in hidden in the names.


Teresa and I are very advanced in our studies and so some of this may be a little hard to grasp at first but the video series on this site should really help clear things up.


BIBLE “Book of Secrets” KEYS

  • The world is really you.
  • You are a reflection of God.
  • God rules the world outside you
  • You rule the world inside you.
