MENTAL, PHYSICAL & SPIRITUAL WALLS…

Remembering some of my favorite lyrics, by Pink Floyd…. and then I’ll relay some things…let’s begin…

Mother should I trust the government?…. mother should I run for president?…. mother do you think they’ll put me on the firing line?…. mother do you think they’ll try and break my balls?…ohh… mother should I build a wall?….” Hush now baby baby don’t you cry…. mother’s going to pick out all your girlfriends for you…. mother’s going to keep baby happy and warm.”…..etc.

So I want to ask you this ; is the context of building a ‘wall’ in the Pink Floyd lyrics, the same context as Donald Trump building a wall to protect our nation?…. my opinion is that the Pink Floyd song is about a mental ‘wall’ that society/ instititions/ traditions/ bad education/ bad selfish leaders/ teachers & other people tend to inflict on common people to suppress, oppress, and control them, because of a few selfish humans at the top of a government or other structure… so the Pink Floyd song writer writes “mother should I build a wall?…. in my interpretation this ‘wall’ is to keep this bad influence out and protect himself… his freedom and his free thought… and most likely is a mental ‘wall.’

Now, hopefully this freedom of thought does not lead people in rebellion against ‘Authority’… and that they understand and respect the rule of law… and its necessity for the human race… otherwise we descend into a chaos that is almost impossible to return from…so… we have mental walls, physical walls, and spiritual walls…

I’m going to relay some things… but first let’s reference 1 Kings 19: 11-12… and then you might want to read the rest of the chapter…

Paraphrased and for launching my comments, Elijah was standing on the mountain before the Lord, and the Lord passed by… and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks into pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake, and after the earthquake, a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire, and after the fire…A STILL SMALL VOICE…about this still small voice = ‘the sound of stillness’…(compare with Job 4:16) In the Sept= ‘gentle breeze’… usually misquoted “the still”…

So now that we have some background and information to reference, I’ll relay some things..

Although God through history has used earthquakes, fires, wind, water, amongst other methods, in dealing with earth and its inhabitants…. isn’t it just beyond wonderful that the Lord was not found in all of these things, as He was communing with Elijah… it was the ‘still small voice’… even though God was going to tell Elijah to go and appoint some people, and do some things to execute his judgments which was horrible but needed…

So what’s my real point here?… if somehow, we as a people could learn to overcome ourselves…. to realize that life is a gift…. that EVERY LIFE IS A GIFT AND MATTERS… maybe we could get some control of, & ‘make a little better’ this ‘death planet existence’….. just flip on the news, and you probably won’t have to wait but a minute or so, and you will hear about the death of someone or of many people… and we all scratch our heads and ask why?…

SEE an answer has been available… answers have been voiced down through the ages, through great leaders of the world and Men of God….but they seem to fall on deaf ears…. and we don’t really seem to want an answer, we are bent towards trouble and evil because of our fallen nature… due to what happened in the Garden of Eden, and Satan bringing death upon us and into the world, because of our bad decisions and breaking commands concerning him…. so to conclude…. I don’t know about you but I’ve seen enough of this world’s death and destruction…. the wind, the rain, the earthquakes, the fire, all of these and more are part of our world, but I desire….”The Still Small Voice”… we have to ask ourselves, I think… have we totally missed it with God?…. I think He’s more wonderful and gentle and peaceful and loving than we could ever imagine (and not to say that He will withhold his mighty arm in judgment).. but the curse is broken…. we need to claim our victory… and I am glad that the end of the age is upon us, and we can move on as believers…. please visit my blog…littleraventhepoet.blog………….Soncerely, Frank Payton.

Calm down… breathe deeply and wait for the still small voice.. it’s the greatest sound you’ll ever here.
