ARTIFICIAL REALITY

There are two realities in the world that we deal with.


One is that which is artificial. That which we create ourselves; such as games of every description and play acting - - and the reality which is the stark circumstances that accompany everyday living.


We try to entertain ourselves with things that have little to do with the survival of the races. It is a form of escapism; it allows us to create an environment where we substitute realities.

Much of what we do is aimed at keeping us in our pleasure zone. Since there isn’t a “One size fits all,” it has required a multiplicity of genres to meet our needs.


Whether it is music, sports or hallucination pursuits all of which lull us into a feeling of security and pleasure and it becomes our lifestyle.


Contests are created whereby people are set against each other with winners and losers. This is a form of class warfare not unlike the old caste system of yesterday that establishes a superior/inferior status.


We try to compensate for intentional dissipation with health restoration processes of various kinds.


In the real world it is a far simpler process whereby we are only dealing with survival. Only those things that are expedient need to be considered worthwhile.


The sophistication of society has blurred the difference between the real and the artificial to the point we have a hybrid form of existence which can’t distinguish the difference between them.


This same modus operandi has invaded the relationship of GOD and man where we have developed certain forms of communication with HIM that bear the stamp of artificiality.


We are admonished to sing songs unto our GOD, to gather together and encourage each other, but when we are conditioned to depend on this in order to communicate with HIM we ignore the “One on one,” which is important to maintain.


The point I try to make is that the raw unembellished relationship with HIM is just you and GOD in personal fellowship with nothing or no one else involved. When you are alone, just you and GOD, it is here where you find out what reality truly is.


1John 1:7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

This is as personal a reality as it gets.
