Connected Dots

Some events in our lives seem random like unconnected dots, when we look closer we see the threads.

Season 3 Episode 8

If there’s no purpose in life than the pursuit of one’s pleasure then the human experience will have no meaning.

True meaninglessness is to inhabit a universe without strings. To exist as a singular organism detached and independent.

Some may call this liberation to live without attachments, to answer to no one, to be your own god.

Detachment and radical independence creates loneliness. “Man is not made to be alone.”

Like it or not are actions creates a ripple effect, and other people’s actions impacts us.
We are influenced for good or bad.

There is also Cosmic Domino Effect where one action creates a chain reaction. Cosmic Domino Effects are difficult to escape, but not all of them end poorly.

Tom Cruise VS Jesus

The Hollywood Superstar or the Chosen One, who will you choose.

S3 Episode 7

Jesus has been misunderstood, misscategorized and maligned.
He’s the most famous man to ever walk the Earth. His teachings and way of life is both magnetizing and polarizing.

He was born a rebel, lived as a revolutionist and died as a martyr.
His followers called him the Lamb of God, the Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Chosen One.

Times have changed and has given birth to Hollywood and Social Media. Historical figures with rough edges and uncomfortable features are chiseled, repackaged and relabled.

To appeal to a broader demographic Jesus had to change. His radical ideas and unbending dogma needed to give way to progressive enlightenment.
Sin, damnation and the cross needed to be replaced.

With slow strategic and precise measures a new Jesus emerged from the factory. This version is passive, tame and a bit of a hippie with long blonde hair and creamy blue eyes.

By toning down his message and converting him into a self help guru he appeals to the everyday Walmart Shopper.

Not wanting to feel left out many churches ditched the biblical Jesus for version 2.0. Such a gamble paid off as Mega Churches blossomed across America.

The historical/biblical Jesus is still out there in the desert telling mankind to repent. It’s harder to find him with Netflix, YouTube and thousands of distractions.

If you search for the real Jesus you may not like him. He’s not going to tickle your ear and call you his special snowflake.
He’s not going to overlook your sins and give you a pat on the back. Too bad.
So be careful what you search for.
