This blog as now published appears with two years worth of posts missing courtesy of WordPress not allowing reversion to a “free ” hosting plan from a business subscription. The full blog to June 20th 2022 is still readable on the Wayback machine. i will re upload the full blog on another platform when I have access to a pc this is from my android phone.
WordPress and the established internet is nobodys friend. This episode with wordpress just confirms what I already knew and have been saying for several years.
Our personal data will never be safe on the corporate/state monopoly internet.
The “FREE” internet is not Free ,it costs us all our liberty. Freedom of thought and deed is anathema to the internet monopolists.
A reminder of the deeper truths revealed in places of meditation and contemplation. David Hodges is a monk who lives on Caldy island. The love of god was palpable in that wonderful place.
1 Corinthians 13New International Version
13 If I speak in the tongues[a](A) of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy(B) and can fathom all mysteries(C) and all knowledge,(D) and if I have a faith(E) that can move mountains,(F) but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor(G) and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b](H) but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient,(I) love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.(J) 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,(K) it is not easily angered,(L) it keeps no record of wrongs.(M) 6 Love does not delight in evil(N) but rejoices with the truth.(O) 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.(P)
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies,(Q) they will cease; where there are tongues,(R) they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part(S) and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes,(T) what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood(U) behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror;(V) then we shall see face to face.(W) Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.(X)
