“Yinney” – Chapter 16

Bradypus “In this Fellowship we celebrate the beauty and wisdom of slow, because we are all about gardens, not jungles,” Yinney explained. “Our Lord loves a pleasant garden. There is peace in a garden, not strife, not worldly ways. The world is a jungle. We do not copy the world. We are a refuge from that rat race. Peace be unto you, our Lord loved to say.”

It was another day of teaching and he was explaining to the three macaws, Lu-Lu, Me-Me, and Jo-Jo, that he was about to go out on three day trips to spread the word of his 7th Day Tree. “However,” he explained, “this will be done very slowly. Fast growth is not what we seek. Weeds love fast. Weeds love speed. Weeds will overcome a garden very quickly and choke it out. People make the mistake of seeking fast growth. They see it as a sign of success, but how can you develop leaders for small groups that quickly? Leaders you know well enough to set in a position of leadership? How can you get to know your people very well so quickly? There is no depth! Depth requires time. True relationships require time.”

“Every garden needs constant weeding. There will be those we send away with an invitation to come back if they decide they want to share ‘fellowship’. It’s all about communion, fellowship, family, community. If someone cannot fellowship without causing contention, then they have not found the right garden for them. They might not even be looking for a garden. The jungle may be in them. The predator may be in them. We are not of the predator ways. Satan is the predator; our Lord a Shepherd and Gardner. Satan thought he could over throw and steal what God has slow grown, His Kingdom. But he found out different, because God is not only a Shepherd and Gardner, but also the ONE TRUE GOD.”

“The scriptures say, “I was glad when they said unto me, let us go unto the House of the Lord. Church for many has simply become more stress added to an already stressful life. It’s another “Do List”, with all kinds of programs you’re expected to fulfill if you are a good Christian. But what we need is true fellowship with family. We need to ‘feel at home’. A safe place we can find opportunity to share our deepest feelings and thoughts. A place to be excited about our walk with God. A place to relax and enjoy. There must be true communion, or Church is failing to be Church, because Church is failing to be family… God’s family.”

“In a world rushing faster and faster every day, in this Fellowship, we choose to promote the beauty of slow, a way of peace, the growing of an inner garden in you.” And with that, Yinney smiled and opened the floor for conversation.

Jo-Jo was the first, “Your words are like cool water in a parched earth. You do not know what it is like to be a bird. You have always been a sloth. But ‘slow’ does not come easy for me. We birds have fast metabolisms. We eat constantly and burn food quickly. Our hearts race. Our movements are sudden and quick. But your words help me find balance. Your words quinch a thirst in my soul. I know there is a proper speed for me in which I too can walk as one with my Lord, in a garden, not this jungle we are surrounded by.”

“Here, here!” Lu-Lu and Me-Me both agreed with everything Jo-Jo said. Time was forgotten as the small group relaxed in the 7th Day Tree, shared some drinks and snacks, and talked about the goodness of God well into the afternoon. Anyone could come and go as they pleased. Me-Me was first to leave saying she had a family thing. But the fellowship continued no matter where they were. One in Spirit, one in God.

Lurking down below, Jag stared at the small group above. Of course, the macaws meant little to him, but he wondered when that sloth moved in? And when he would poo? His belly gnawed while he watched from a dark spot. Making note of the sloth and his tree, hunger finally moved him on. Something was going to die today, because his desire would be satisfied no matter what.

“Yinney” – Chapter 15

651b0e0aeabb42018feddf04ae1d40ce Jag was a born predator, and he liked it that way. His god was the god of hunger. Satisfy, satisfy, satisfy…the hunger. It’s nothing personal, it’s just I’m gonna get mine, even if it cost you!

He liked being at the top of the food chain. He was good at what he did and he knew it. He prided himself on how well he lived. He deserved it. Let the weak and fearful live small lives, but I will thrive!

He liked his life, but was he happy? What’s happy got to do with it? It’s all about staying hungry, feeding the hunger, the hunt, the pursuit, the kill, the feast! He didn’t care about being happy, what he wanted was respect! And all around the jungle Jag was feared and respected.

He prided himself on being a hunter. When he went to the pool for water, he looked in the mirror and told himself, “You’re the one, Jag. You’re the one everyone fears and respects. After all, did you not kill the Anaconda, and make this territory your own?”

Jag would not admit it, but he had a slowly growing fear of his own. He was not as young as he use to be. He was not quite as fast. He felt just as strong as ever, maybe even more so, but he knew he was not quite as fast, and he didn’t know what to do about it?

If he didn’t stay strong, stay fast, stay hungry; then the day would come when another predator would eat him. It was the way of the jungle. There was no peace. There was only kill or be killed. Stay hungry. Feed the hunger. Satisfy, satisfy. But the satisfaction was always so short before the hunger grew again, and he was beginning to weary of this endless cycle. But he would be respected. If it was the last thing he ever did, he would never be disrespected! And with that thought he gave a strong jaguar cry, knowing he just sent fear through all who might wonder if he was weak enough to attack.

Dorothy was at the fitness center again. The mirror she despised when she first came there was now becoming her friend. She was beginning to like what she saw. Dorothy was never far out of shape to begin with, so it wasn’t taking long to get “it” back, and she discovered a deep part of her liked “it”.

Guys were starting to come around, and she enjoyed the flattery. Jerry took her for granted. There was no passion, no romance anymore, and she hungered for it. If only she could find some contentment, some satisfaction, some thrill; then she would be happy. “I’m no different than anyone else,” Dorothy told herself. After all, it’s what she saw on her big screen all day long, people pursuing and satisfying their desires, the pursuit of the good life. She would know satisfaction too. The hunger was growing. “It is good to stay hungry,” she decided.

Turned out her trainer was married and faithful. Big disappointment at first, but then a couple other guys began coming around, offering to show her how to do an exercise better. Sometimes they got real close and personal as they helped her. It felt good. She wanted more. She had time. Jerry would never change. He was in love with money. She had found her happy hunting ground, and soon, she would feed that hunger and know satisfaction.

Only one thing worried her, the children. She never wanted to hurt them. They must never know. She would be careful. Choose her hunting well. Perhaps another married man who has a lot to lose too, if ever found out. Someone just like Jack over there. He’s been coming around a lot. He would be purrrr-fect.

Another day passed at Yinney’s 7th Day Tree in the Amazon, and another, and another. Lu-Lu, Me-Me, and another friend of theirs, named Jo-Jo came by with suggestions for the Fellowship name, but none of them seemed right. So he did a little more teaching and they went out still inspired to find just the right name. Soon, Yinney wanted to make a venture out himself, and begin to know his 7th Day Tree territory.

“Yinney” – Chapter 12

download (2) “So what does it mean, Yinney?” Lu-Lu asked. “What does it mean if a man comes here?”

“That’s part of the mystery,” he answered. “In three years we will find out. In the meantime, we are to prepare a place of community and communion, in other words, a place of true fellowship. You can’t have fellowship with someone who wants to eat you.”

Yinney silently pondered, before finally asking, “What is this race of man? How have they become such predators?”

“They are not all that way,” she explained. “The predators are fewer in number, but they feed off the masses. They manipulate the masses whatever way they want them to go. They have their own food chain. Like Jag is considered to be a creature at the top of our food chain. There is always someone at the top of the food chain, and those under them. But way towards the bottom are the ones being fed on. So these people are always scrambling not to be at the bottom. It is a jungle of their own making. But I hear there are also those like us. Those who only desire to live peaceful lives and do no harm, in a world of predators.

“I see,” Yinney acknowledged. “So these people live in a world much like ours, predators and vegetarians, but who are the ones cutting a road through our Amazon? Are they predators or peace-loving? Are they here to do harm? The vision said bad things were coming.”

“Most of them will simply be hard working people just trying to stay off the bottom of the food chain so they don’t get eaten, and they want things. They want more than they already have, and someone at the top, a true predator is giving the orders they blindly follow in exchange for something called, money. I have seen these things with my own eyes.”

“Yes,” Yinney spoke deeply, “we will create a place of fellowship where no one eats another, and all predators are not welcome. We will not live in fear or manipulation. The All-Creator will help us. And this man, when he comes, a lot depends on what has brought him here. The vision said he was a special man, and when he returns with the message, he will suffer much because of it.”

“We have a great purpose, Lu-Lu,” Yinney continued. “This tree will be a medicine tree, with leaves for healing. All those who come to these healing waters will find peace. It is medicine to the soul. The lagoon, the tree, our teachings, and our fellowship offers a different way of life based on simplicity and God-loving values, to do no harm.”

“This road… why does it come here?” he asked.

“For wood, and other natural resources. But wood is high on the list. They take trees and cut them up into many slivers. Their appetite knows no end. You have a human settlement some twenty miles from here. It is called ‘Benjamin Constant’. They want the road to reach that settlement. Your area, Yinney, is not far from the Javary River. This lagoon is probably fed by it. The Javary joins the Amazon River in the same area of Benjamin Constant. The Javary lies west of you, but it runs north and south. The Amazon River junction, and the settlement lie north of you.”

“And why do they want trees so badly? I love my 7th Day Tree, but is not one tree enough?” he asked.”

“They eat trees to build great homes for living in. Some people are very reasonable in their wants, but many have the hunger. They are predators wanting more than is good. They see it as a sign of success, and they greatly value success and the money that goes with it. They say they work hard and deserve it. They have earned it. To them, other values do not matter. They are the elite, and the world is here to serve them, please them in any way they desire, and as much as they desire. They have no respect for sacred ways as you do. This tree is simply wood for them, and it takes many trees to make one great house.”

“Yes, Jag would be right at home with these people,” Yinney concluded. “You can’t have community with someone who wants to eat you, and there are many forms of being eaten. We will create a fellowship, Lu-Lu, and among other things, when the man comes we will show him a fellowship based on soul.”

“It can start with just two. I would like to start one based on the writings of the Hebrews, who speak of a Golden Rule, a great Creator, and his Son. Would you like to help me start this? I will teach you from the ancient texts why the Creator gave us life, how we are meant to live it, and where he plans to take us from here.”

“Oh yes!” she agreed. “That sounds so exciting! And where do we start?”

“We start by lighting up your soul with the light of God’s words. You will learn that flesh and blood are temporary, but soul goes on forever. Flesh is but a vessel for soul. When we live in soul our desires change, because we know this place really doesn’t matter. Things really don’t matter. Only God and people matter. And…one more thing…where all of this is going…not where it is today…but where it is going.”

“Okaaaay,” Lu-Lu slowly said. “I think you lost me back where you said a fellowship can start with two. Can you say all that one more time?”

Yinney smiled and said, “I would be happy to.”

Grandpa White Feather / 12-13-18

20181102_114913 I can’t believe its been 2 months since my last entry already, and during that time many good things and much progress has been made. The purpose of this blog site is now two-fold. 1.) It is historical information concerning church history and how we left a “Table relationship” which Christ established, and returned to more of a “Temple relationship”, a relationship I decided I would do my best to leave, and thus was created “Fellowship of the White Path”, a church different. This site is a record of my personal journey to this discovery if you are industrious enough to study it for yourself. The articles are already written, plenty of them, and I do not need to write more. One must simply be willing to dig deeper into this site. But the journey with the Teepee continues, and I will occasionally give updates.

2.) Since the history is already written, and those who want to really know the truth about “Temple or Table” will be willing to search, I have recently been inspired to simply share short excerpts from my journals. I constantly journal. These will simply be spiritual and philosophical type thoughts that I feel worth sharing.

So…perhaps it is “3” fold. 1.) Historical records and personal journey already written. 2.) Quick updates as to the progress of Teepee and spiritual retreat. 3.) Thoughts from the journals of Grandpa White Feather.

And since “thoughts from my journals is the new thing, I will start with that, written just today, and I will leave you with some pictures and a few quick update comments. Assuming anyone is interested in these things I do, we will continue to do this, probably on a very irregular basis, as the Spirit inspires. Here’s my journal for today:

What is the least amount we can be the most happy with? (This question, this thought occurred to me today, worded in just this way.) That amount is worth fighting for. But there is the “Law of Diminishing Return”, and most people fail to heed the wisdom of that Law.

What is the least amount that makes me the most happy? Where is my level of contentment? Am I ever simply content? 

With God, less becomes more. Poverty becomes rich. Jesus told a rich church they were actually poor, and ready to be spewed out of his mouth. He also told a poor church they were actually rich.

God’s Word says godliness with contentment is great gain.

Journal Ends

I spent 2 weeks actually living in the Teepee as very bad November weather rushed in. We even had fifty mile an hour winds one day! But we now have a working wood stove. The bedroom chamber has made progress with floor laid and a swinging hatch door on inside wall to enter it, but I did fail to get it ready soon enough. It’s still not able to be used. And without a nice warm sleeping place, two weeks in the Teepee was enough for now.

I came home to the city house and cut it in half! It’s not a big house to begin with, but with a little innovation, I saw I could save on our utility bills by creating a Murphy bed in our living room. This was an interesting challenge. It’s been very successful. And now I can slowly turn the back half of house into a studio apartment. Completion of this project is way down the road, but for now, just saving on utilities is a big blessing, and I’m actually really enjoying the new set-up.

I end with pictures of teepee and house;  and yes, the pictures will fall off the shelves if I don’t remove them before lowering bed, but it only takes like one minute, and since I’m retired now, it’s certainly not a problem.

The Formula – Part 3

20181001_145252

God Task + Inner Circle + Prayer + Simplicity = God Balance

“You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others.” (Heb. 5:12a) Apostle Paul.

There are many ways of teaching.

It’s been a very busy week at “White Feather Neighborhood”! We have a new look! I’m afraid the color “white” was just too difficult to keep clean. Try as I did, it simply wasn’t working. And that is a message for our need of Christ! He is coming back for a people who’s garments are without spot or blemish in a very dirty world! What a challenging thought! Good luck trying to accomplish that on your own! Only the grace of God in response to the blood of his Son is going to keep us clean unto that day! Make sure we do not take that for granted! Appreciate!!! Lift up your praise and thanksgiving unto Him, or you’re nothing more than a spiritually spoiled brat! (Nuff said, I hope.)

But today’s message is about the second part of our formula, our “Inner Circle”. As you can see, my “God Task” kept me pretty busy and on track this week, as it normally does. Painting that whole Teepee is no small job. But in the midst of all that, what about people? That building is not a person. It has no soul. It has no eternity, but will burn up or rot away one day. Jesus is all about people! So if my God Task does not also include influencing people towards the Kingdom of God, then it is probably not a true God Task. It’s a me, mine, and I task.

Paul said we ought to reach a point of teaching others. Jesus gave the Great Commission of making “disciples” in all nations. None of us are excluded from these expectations, and it is part of God’s great design for keeping us on track! We all need to examine our personal Inner Circle, and I’m not talking about your circle of friends who “influence you”, I’m talking about those “YOU INFLUENCE”.

To narrow it down even further, only those you influence towards Christ! You may have those you are a bad influence on, and you may be pushing them away from Christ, not towards. If so, you need to correct this immediately! Blood on your hands! Do you believe?

So…take a little time here. Make some list of your Inner Circles. Jesus had his 70, his 12, and even his 3. He plainly set the example. This is what Jesus DID. Your numbers may be different. That part doesn’t matter. But as you examine your personal Inner Circles, isolate the ones you are actually influencing into the Kingdom of God. We teach in many ways, but whatever your method is, it should be very plain you are a disciple of Christ, and you disciple others in Christ. This is what Jesus calls “Church”! It’s not about a building. It’s about us walking in unity with our Lord. If you’re not discipling in some form, you’re not having Church according to the way Jesus DID.

I hope to say more on this before we move to the next part of the Formula. But for now, in order for this Formula to work, you must take time to meditate, study, examine your performance in this area. We are all called to minister in some way to some one, and probably several someones. Who are those you can honestly say before God, I am a teacher unto them. I am a disciple who disciples.

Once you realize the magnitude of being a spiritual father or mother to someone, you will also realize the godly balance it will influence in your own living. So work on those lists! This is not a short article. It includes an assignment. I’m keeping the words short so you will hopefully do the assignment. The devil will try to keep you from it. Don’t let him win. It’s not just about YOU. The souls of others hang in the balance. Think about the people who are attached to the names you write down. I do hope there are at least a few names, but if not, then your life is definitely out of balance and mostly about YOU. YOU can change that! Let the only blood on your hands that day be the blood of Jesus! Selah.

Fellowship of the White Path 7/15/18

The Mind Matrix / Helmet of Salvation

BattleisReal-1

We all live in a “Matrix”, a “Mind Matrix” of our choosing, of our own construction.

The movie which made this word so famous, “The Matrix”, in which Morpheus comes to Neo offering him… TRUTH… REALITY… A CHOICE… A FORK IN THE ROAD… Escape from smoke and mirrors illusion… Virtual Reality, but not REAL!…the choice to continue living a LIE… a FALSE ILLUSION so real you could not tell it was not real… a FALSE REALITY you have been convinced is real… or to WAKE UP!… ENTER ENLIGHTENMENT… KNOW TRUTH…FACE REALITY…even though it may be HARD… but live to make a REAL DIFFERENCE!

I’ve been looking forward to this subject.

Welcome to this week’s “Fellowship of the White Path”.

As we just finished looking at the Belt of Truth in God’s Armor of Light, we will now move to the Helmet of Salvation, but how can we examine what protects our head and mind, without realizing we also continue the study of the Belt of Truth?

What is the MATRIX in “YOUR” head?

Anything less than the TRUTH is the beginning of our Fall! What we don’t know can hurt us! Even our innocent unintentional misconceptions can lead to failure! We should always be seeking more TRUTH, greater light, because only TRUTH sets us free!

BUT WHAT IS THE TRUTH YOU HAVE CHOSEN? THAT IS THE WORLD YOU ARE LIVING IN, WHETHER FALSE OR REAL. THAT WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN LED TO “BELIEVE” IS REAL.

There is so much to be considered and discussed on this subject. And what is the truth of it? For that is what we seek. We’re going to spend some time on the Helmet, because the Helmet is a MATRIX, the MIND of CHRIST. Every decision we make, every action we give birth to, has passed through that matrix, OUR MATRIX, before manifesting into the earth and creating, influencing the world we live in, the life we live. If you hate the life you live? Something has to change in that matrix of yours before anything else can get better.

OUR MATRIX IS SO REAL TO US! It may look, feel, taste real. The “Experts” may say this is what’s real. Everything may be shouting at us THIS IS REAL! THIS IS WHAT “I WANT” TO BE REAL! But unless it is also TRUE, then it’s NOT REAL.

Sometimes…for some people, it seems…it is so hard to know what is true, and what is real. A virtual reality is exactly that, because it seems so real! The more “truth-like” it is, the more powerful it is! We are convinced we know the truth. There is no need for change in “us”. Christians are just weak people who cannot face the fact we all die, so they create a “happy place” to go to. But the truth is, there is no God, no heaven, no hell, no life after death, everything is a dead end street. It’s that simple, and that is the “matrix” millions of people live in. It is so real to them! Life, a dead-end street!

I am not one of those people. That is not the matrix I believe. In my world, that matrix is a lie sending a lot of people to a very real hell! Because of my matrix, I am motivated to create such a blog site as this with the message of “AWAKEN”! LIGHT BE! My matrix causes me to walk in Priesthood!

My brain frame is very different from that of mortality. I have a Biblical Matrix in my head which I have spent many years constructing through much study and testing. You may have a Science Matrix. Actually, the two are not necessarily incompatible, not in my matrix, anyway.

But you may have a Worldly Matrix, or materialistic, money hungry, power hungry mind frame. There are a billion different mind frames, perspectives we can have. Every one of us a very unique individual, but in the midst of all this comes a great teacher, a teacher like none other, a teacher very hard to rationally explain his effect on history, and he boldly declares with no hint of doubt or apology that the TRUTH is what sets us free! Hhmmm. (Do we agree with him on this, but ignore many other things he said and did?) If so, you have a “glitch” in your programming.

HIS word challenges us to “be transformed by the renewing of our minds”! (Rom. 12:2) We are even given a list to “think on these things”. (Phil. 4:8) And to have the “Mind of Christ”! (Phil. 2:5-8) We are also told to be Born-Again. To intentionally choose God as our Father if we want connection to our Creator. Whaaat? Many laugh at all this like they laughed at Noah.

But if you’re a Believer of the Bible, then your perspective on everything begins changing. Your brain frame is changing. What you see yourself living is completely different than those who simply walk in flesh and blood. The “Holy Spirit Matrix of God’s revealed Truth” is a powerful mind frame transporting you out of mortality into Eternity. Transforming you from a thought process of flesh and blood to one of SPIRIT. We now live in a different Kingdom ruled by a different set of laws, and a very different freedom, a very REAL FREEDOM. Life in the Spirit!

BUT HAVE YOU BEEN TEACHABLE? AND WHO HAVE YOU CHOSEN AS YOUR TEACHERS? HOW EXPERT ARE THEY? HOW DO YOU JUDGE “EXPERT”? A PAPER HANGING ON THEIR WALL? HOW RICH OR SUCCESSFUL THEY SEEM TO BE? HOW GREAT IS THE LIGHT IN YOUR HEAD? HAS IT GIVEN YOU A PRIEST MATRIX, OR KING? (King is a false teaching, a mistranslation. Check it out.)

The Matrix (mind) of Christ is Priesthood. Anything less is a lesser light. Some of the teachers you have filled your head with are not as expert as you thought. Perhaps they have a Money Matrix? Perhaps they are led by pride, or power, or other teachers they thought were “all that”, and they want to be “all that” too. And to “that”… the TRUTH is that pride goes before a fall!

THE HELMET UPON OUR HEAD IS EVERYTHING! It’s not optional! It determines your spiritual success or failure!

This very real challenge has been called the “Battlefield of the Mind”. This is where it is determined what we really believe and who we really are, and if we’re really following Christ, or not. Jesus said many call him Lord, but do not what he says. He told those to “DEPART FROM HIM”. (Not words I want to hear.)

How about you? Even at this very moment your Mind Matrix is deciding how you feel about what I just said. And out of that you will decide if there are changes you need to make or not. You will decide if you like me or not. Possibly label me a quack. It all depends on YOUR reality. But is your reality REAL? Am I a quack? Or someone God wants you to listen to?

Just because your chosen matrix may put me in a “quack file”, does not mean I am. Only TRUTH determines all things. Only God will be the judge of that. I’m not concerned about YOUR TRUTH, only GOD’S TRUTH. And I function as a Priest of that truth, that light. So the more we have the Mind of Christ, the God Matrix; then the more we will be able to file things correctly and make wise and productive decisions we will not later regret. We will successfully walk the path without end, as Priest of Christ. Is this the reality that completely dominates everything else in your head? It should be. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God!

But if you examine your matrix and in all “honesty” decide there is a “truth gap” between what you claim with your mouth and what you actually live in your daily life, then here is your chance to WAKE UP before it is too late.  I have much to say on this subject of the “Mind Matrix” and TRUTH. Let us put on the Helmet of Salvation, the Mind of Christ, the God Matrix! And know…each piece of this Armor are so inextricably connected…the Belt of Truth…the Boots of the Gospel…Breastplate of Righteousness…Shield of Faith…Sword of the Spirit…Prayer and Supplication… that the whole Armor are one…even as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit…ARE ONE!
