Men, Beauty and Freedom

Men often think of two things when we think of beauty:
The first is a woman and the second is fire power!
The power to rule the world, the power of a strong military, destructive power and the power of ORDER.
Why? Because it's a man's way of feeling secure in a world of danger.

We want to be able to control the world, and since we cannot control everything we want to be seen as capable of inflicting great harm to those who would control us.
Take a look at the history of the Cold War - and take a look at what is happening now, in Russia, China, the USA.

Those are all countries that want their empires to remain or rebuild, to have a 1000 Year Reich, but not call it that.

Watch the video - see how "beautiful" destruction can be...

Beauty is the Catalyst for Freedom

The title of this post sounds pretty superficial. However, it's true. Evil hates beauty, because it moves men to fight for freedom, and men are willing to do anything in the quest for freedom.

Look around you. In this world it is beauty that captivates people, or motivates people to do things they wouldn't do, both good and bad. And if you say to someone, tell me what pops into your head when I say "beauty" - 99% will say "woman".

It's not a political or religious thing, or a purely masculine thing. Even women know they are the bearers of the standard of beauty. Cars, buildings, etc...things men build, all motivated directly or indirectly by a quest to recreate forms of beauty - measured consciously or not by the greatest visible expression of beauty: women.

Be honest and you'll see that what I am saying is true. And if it is true, accept it because it's part of "the truth that will make you free."

Eve was a really big surprise!

IMAGE: "Creation of Eve" by Keith Hamilton
I remember the first time I saw a woman who was so beautiful I could not take my eyes off her...Adam must have felt that. Only he was lucky; Eve was naked and did not mind a bit.

Book is Pt. 1 of the map home

Somebody asked me why I wrote "To my Beloved Eve..."
I wrote the book, because I'm grateful for women, and because I was angry at God for the screwed up world we live in. It's easy to blame God because He doesn't argue, and there is some satisfaction to venting one's rage at the Almighty...but it's an illusion, really.

There is no one else to blame for the mess we're in as a human race - BUT - if there is a way in, there has to be a way out.

Adam had it all, then lost it all, then tries to get it back, then realizes it's not so easy... that's the story of anyone who's ever won and lost. Some lose big - like Adam and Eve - and some lose small. That is the human condition.

After finishing the book I realized something; Adam and Eve are very, very similar to many people I know. It makes me think that they really did exist and enjoyed a real Paradise.

Which means we can get back there, via the same route we left - with God's help.
