“We do not set out from what men say, imagine, conceive, nor from men as narrated, thought of, imagined, conceived, in order to arrive at men in the flesh....it is rather men who, developing their material production and their material intercourse, alter, along with this their real existence, their thinking and the products of their thinking. Life is not determined by consciousness, but consciousness by life” (Marx and Engels, The German Ideology, trans. Roy Pascal (New York, 1947), pp. 14-15).
Well I simply disagree. Though you claim I am taken by the ideological spewings of the superstructure, spirit precedes material. Consciousness is separate from spirit. A mind set on the flesh is death, a mind set on the spirit is life; there is no other truth.
Lord, You are better than breathing
You are more beautiful than the most stunning woman I have ever seen
You are greater than the whirling hieghts of music
Lord, You are greater than me
My songs to you are feeble
But my will set in love
by your Spirit
makes them strong
A new Song
a new song
I opened up the miniature jar of honey that you brought home to me from Israel, and I ate the last remnants of your love.
I have an ancient spirit, in the body that could still be mistaken for teenaged, and a legal age of 25; what a curious soul I must have.
It will require another very curious soul if it will be matched and mated.
Either that, or a Word from God, and corresponding actions of faith.
The kitchen is closed at my house. And I'm starving in my sleep. Even though I ate 5 hamburger patties, two oranges, a waffle and two pieces of bread with penutbutter and maple suryp. I really hope I can fit in another meal today: I was planning on three burritos.
I need to eat close to 3000 calories a day if i want to gain weight, which I think is really ridiculous.
So here is my estimated count so far:
2 Oranges 65x2= 130
2 slices of bread 70x2= 140
maple syrup 210
Rice waffle 80
Hamburger protien style 240
Double Meat Protien Style 400x2=800
Grand Total.....................1600 Calories!!! How do people eat 3000 Plus Calories a day? Even if i eat my three burritos tonight 140x3=420 | 420 + 1600 = 2020.
Well after these shocking results I found a weight gain calculator and it says I should consume at least 2473 calories to maintain weight, and 2720 is ideal for putting on muscle mass. So I should eat those burritos and go pick up another two double meats from IN-N-Out. Gaining weight is expensive. I need to get a real job so I can join the fat cats of capitalism.

by far the coolest rap lyric I have EVER heard. Ok, well I guess I beat it in one of my rap songs--"Tabernacles Word! Tabernacles Word!"
Refraction is an amazing thing. Light bends, it moves in differnet directions at different frequencies; what is more amazing is rain, droplets of water--comming from what window in Heaven I know not(ok it's a cloud, but i prefer the notion that their are seas in the sky)--each one a prism.
Today on my way home from school, as it was raining, and as I lamented one of the defeated and spurious designs of my heart, I looked to my left, and there was the most beautiful rainbow comming down from the sky and descending behind a campus building. A rainbow for me--the light that entered my eye, no one else saw. A sign of the covenant to Moses and Man that God would never destroy all living things again with a flood. By close association I appropriated also God's blessing as He gave it: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth."
I want to recommend a few songs for the world to legally obtain and listen to.
Henry Thomas-Jonah in the Wilderness
Eddie Cleanhead Vinson-Old Maid Boogie
Apples in Stereo-Ruby
Bent's album: The Everlasting Blink
I got most of this from emusic.com--they have a free 50 song download trial--it's mostly old stuff and independent artists.
I better get my swirve on before my swirve gets me.
