Faith Fonts - Vol. 19 - This COMPLETES
our Faith Font Journey of Exploration, which has taken more than one full year, wherein
we have been studying the relationship between LOVE and FAITH. Yes, we have come
to the end of the Z's, and to the very last installed font on my computer. Here, in this last
installment, the word FAITH is presented in each of the last 43 fonts in my computer's font
folder, from Windsor Outline BT, where we left off in Vol. 18, through Zurich
Ultra Black Extended BT, all of this, as before, set to the song "Feelings of Love" as
performed by Patty Loveless (Lovelace) from John Denver's Montana Christmas Skies DVD
(1996). Your heart truly wants to sing along with her. Learning to smile from the inside out.
Offered as an exercise apparatus for the Divine Heart which God our Father has placed at
the center of each one of His Children. An audio and visual treadmill if you will. Ten and
a half minutes in length. "Feelings of Love" repeated three times. With a bonus surprise
at the end.
With Faith Fonts, Vol. 19, which presents
the last 43 fonts on my computer, we have now covered a total of 1,028 different
font variations. This is not a magic stopping place of course, representing only
the end of the number of fonts that have accumulated on my computer hard drives
over the last fifteen years or so. With each software package you install, you
get a few more fonts, and after a while, they add up. In my case to more than a
thousand. And so, the point is, that the number of fonts, and the extent of
faith, and the extent of love, and thus the capacity to be faithful, is not really
limited, neither one hits a glass ceiling where the process of expanding needs
to stop. No, there is no ceiling. Walk outside, and look up into the sky and
into the vast and endless reaches of space beyond and you will understand
what I mean.
Here is a list of each of the nineteen (19)
Faith Font volumes:
Just how Great is God? What is the
magnitude of that Greatness?
In answering this question, it would
be useful to reconnoiter the strands of our attention around the central campfire
of cosmic contemplation.
There was a time when the astronomers
of the earth did not know for sure that there was anything beyond the Milky Way
Galaxy, this very large conglomeration of stars within in which our huge, but tiny,
solar system resides. But as telescope technology advanced, astronomers were able
to register images of other galaxies, and they were able to determine that these
galaxies were far beyond the most distant star that we know of, that is, they were
beyond those stars which are located at the edges of our own galaxy, which placed
these galaxies empirically outside and far beyond our own. This suggested at the
time, that our universe was composed not so much of individual stars, but of
individual galaxies. When the Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990,
and after they found the right prescription for the Hubble telescope lens, allowing
our vision to reach out with great clarity into vast distances, this basic idea was
thoroughly validated, especially by the what has become known as the Hubble
The Hubble Telescope researchers
identified a tiny slice of the sky that looked empty from the vantage point
of every earth telescope. The Hubble Telescope was focused on this piece
of the sky, and what they did was take time exposures, and what they found
were not more stars exactly, but more galaxies. They found that this little
piece of the sky which looked dark to earth telescopes, was filled and
overflowing with points of light, each one representing not a star, but
a galaxy. Far far distant galaxies. And so, this gives our conception of
the universe, as a vast conglomeration of galaxies, billions of galaxies in
fact, each one composed of billions of stars, all of them flowing majestically
around a center, much more concreteness and tangibility.
And so how great is God? The same
God that sends energy into your heart to make it beat, and provides you with
a stream of life energy that allows for your consciousness to be alive and
aware, to see, to think, to feel, to act, to live, that God, who we call Our Father
and Our Mother, is the same source of life and power, that runs these billions
of galaxies, and all of the billions of stars there, and who sends forth the gift
of life to all the children that occupy these vast systems, and God does this
all at once.
In attempting to get a grasp upon
how Great is God, we can even go further.
Remember, that there was a time
when astronomers did know for sure, if the galaxy we live in, was on the
only galaxy there was. It took advances in telescope technology for this
question to be answered and emphatically so, that indeed, our universe
is composed of billions of galaxies, our home galaxy being only one
Now, the same principle applies
to universes. And in regards to the universe that we know, we wonder, is
this the only universe there is? In other words, is this the only conglomeration
of galaxies that exists, or are there more? And this question will be answered in
much the same way as our previous question was answered.
When our technology
became capable of reaching out beyond the edge of our own galaxy, we
found other galaxies. And we came to understand that our universe is
a conglomeration of galaxies.
At some point, our technology will
advance to a degree, where we can look out to the edge of our universe, where
we can determine which galaxies are the most distant, and there will be a time
where we will not find any galaxies beyond this apparent boundary. We will
number them, and catalog them, and we will find one or two or three or perhaps
a group which indicate the outer reaches of our universes, and we will
live for a time within the conclusion that there is nothing else beyond this.
But another Hubble like leap in
technology will peer in much the same manner into a piece of the sky that
appears dark to the standard telescopes of that day, and this new telescope
technology, like Hubble, will reveal little specks of light, and people we will ask,
are they stars? Or are those specks of light more galaxies? And the distance
calculation will determine, in much the same manner, that they are neither.
Those specks of light will turn out to be more UNIVERSES. And when we
turn this new telescope technology into every dark space in the sky,
we will see more and more of these specks of light. Not a few either, but
an abundance. As God does everything abundantly. And we will then come
to understand that the COSMOS in which we live, is populated by billions
of universes. Each universe composed of billions of galaxies, and each
galaxy, composed of billions of stars.
How Great is the God who
lovingly created you and your twin flame, and extends to you the
power and the opportunity to live forever within vast and endless
mansions of pure love? In coming to a sense of this greatness,
let our hearts contemplate and appreciate the vastness of what
our Father and Mother have created, the vastness of what they
manage and administer on a moment to moment basis, and
always remember, in the midst of this contemplation, that
they still have, and will always have, an infinite amount of
extra time on their hands to cuddle and embrace every
precious child they have ever created.
May you pass every test.

Lighting of the Beacons
Here we have one of the most dramatic
moments in the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, where the signal fires are lit, from
mountain peak, to mountain peak, from Gondor to Rhohan. Truly, beautiful scenery.
And a truly dramatic moment when the King of Rhohan answers the call to battle.
There are many interesting lessons embedded in this small
segment of the story. Not the least of which would be, that if Pippin did not succeed in lighting
the first beacon fire, no aid would have arrived, and the city would have been lost in the upcoming
battle, but not only that. The ring bearer would not have been able to fulfill his mission either, and
the whole of middle earth would have fallen under the domination of the dark hordes. A lot can be
riding on the choice of the individual. And we ought to consider, as well, the life led by those who
manned the beacons on those snow and windswept mountain tops.
I understand that in this small format, the beacon fires are not
that easy to see on the distant mountain peaks, and if you blink, you might miss them. For those who
have an interest in a further and deeper contemplation of these beacon fires, and the vast distances
spanned by them, a larger format (347MB DVD format) is available
here. (18 minute download at 6Mbps) You can play this with the Windows Media Player.
May you pass every test.
