If America is truly under the sworn sovereignty of the US Constitution and all of our political leaders, military personnel, and law enforcement take an oath to protect and defend it, then why is a certain political faction that dwells like a cancer within Congress and the Senate allowed to continue to disrupt our society? […]A Political Party That Should Be Removed! — Docvega’s Blog
I am obsessed with metaphors. I am school teacher and I’ve been reflecting on how I’m like the sun, because I enlighten or illuminate students’ minds with knowledge. Anytime a student connects with an idea–that idea has the ability to light up their mind–thus… knowledge is like light–I am a source of that enlightening experience.
One of the most powerful experiences I have as young adolescent, was observing a church leader dissect the scriptures–and I could literally feel light-energy coming out of his brain as he interpreted scripture and helped his young students understand the deeper meaning of ideas. It was like his brain put a hyper focused magnifying glass on scriptures–something I hope to emulate.
Students are like plants. They need light or sunlight in order to grow. They need knowledge about the world, and about themselves in order to grow–they need to learn how to become their own sources of light–and grow with or without a teacher. Once the plant learns to think for him/herself that student becomes unstoppable and will continue to grow and evolve into whatever their mind can conceive.
I am forever indebted to a high school teacher who lit up my brain with his passion for books and literature and poetry, that inspired me to grow… (teachers can be some of the most powerful and influential people in the world) and over the years I’ve become my own source of light–that I hope to shine to others.
The Fake News Media is still protecting President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party. Why? Since we are at the point where almost any rational soul should find the Democratic Party’s graft and incompetence indefensible, I don’t know, but we human beings are not rational. Anyway, here are a few of the big stories the […]HAVE YOU HEARD? — Citizen Tom
Well, we have pulled our troops out of Afghanistan, and we have left Americans behind. We have left our fellow citizens to suffer at the hands of merciless terrorists. It is not like we don’t know what that means. Don’t they post videos of themselves torturing and killing unbelievers? Do we have an excuse? What […]PEOPLE WHO DON’T BELIEVE ANYTHING WILL DO ANYTHING — Citizen Tom
The truth shall set ye free.
What is the first step in establishing tyranny? Those who would rule must convince enough people that “it’s the right thing to do.” Consider some of the more prominent examples.
- When white people enslaved black people, they used the government to help establish their “right” to own black people. Supposedly, blacks were racially inferior. That is, various academics established the belief in the racial inferiority of blacks as a “scientific belief.” That supposedly made enslaving blacks “the right thing to do.”
- Before Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party took over Germany, Hitler documented the ideology of the Nazis in Mein Kampf. The Nazis advocated the belief in an Aryan master race. The Nazis also emphasized racial conflict, especially agains the Jews. That supposedly made The Holocaust “the right thing to do.”
- Karl Marx…

I’ve been pondering a lot about this tree metaphor because I really want to get into mentoring (even if that means only my children).
I planted a spiritual seed back in 2011. I put a lot of intention behind planting this “seed” 10 years ago in my heart. A seed is basically an idea… you can plant any idea in your heart (which is like symbolic soil). The seed of eternal life, Jesus Christ, whatever you want–good or evil.
Well, it’s 2021, and that seed has slowly grown and is now a tree… that is producing beautiful fruit.
The beautiful fruit… are my kids who are growing from me… who will one day fall off, and be buried in the ground and metaphorically die and their seed will be planted, and they will become their own trees… under my care and supervision. They will hopefully become good trees and produce good fruit–that will fall off and become trees… and the cycle continues for eternity.
But what kind of tree do I want to be? I want to be an authentic tree. I’ve gotten back into spirituality, and I’m reading my scriptures consistently again. I’m surrendering my sins to God. I’m finally becoming the Christian I was meant to become–focused on developing a real relationship with Christ. I do believe this idea came from God… I’m just grateful I could be open to this beautiful symbolism.
What kind of seed do you want to plant in your heart that’ll grow into a tree? (It took me ten years to understand the power of this metaphor.)
Good trees require sunlight and water and good soil (a good heart). That is why biblical study and keeping a relationship with God is so important… no matter what stage of life your in.
The ruined city lies desolate; the entrance to every house is barred.In the streets they cry out for wine; all joy turns to gloom, all joyful sounds are banished from the earth.The city is left in ruins, its gate is battered to pieces.So will it be on the earth and among the nations,as when an olive tree is beaten, or as […]Education or Brainwashing or Just Not Learning — Thoughts from Mark “Hat” Rackley
Here is an updated copy of my book called Heirloom. An Heirloom is something you pass down from one generation to the next. Why not have that heirloom be your greatest ideas.
Read this book and tell me what you think? If you like it… let me know. If you see areas that could be improved… let me know.
It’s time to fight back the evil that is persisting in our day.

“Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil” (Ecclesiastes 8:11 NASB – Bible Gateway).
If ever there was a time when this word from God is true, it is now. God in His mercy is allowing evil without His perceived judgment to be spewed on our nation from the courts, school boards, state capitals and the federal government. Sin is legalized and touted as right, while goodness…
