Centipedes are described as invertebrate animals that belong to Class Chilopoda, Phylum Arthropoda. It is important to note that Phylum Arthropoda is the largest and most diverse group of invertebrate animals. This group makes up more than 80%( 800, 000 ) of all known animal species. The First Book of Moses called Genesis in Chapter 1, verses 24 and 25 describes the creation of cattle, beasts, and everything that creeps upon the Earth.
Centipede has an elongated, flattened body that is divided into head and trunk, and the trunk comprises of segments. They move rapidly on from 14 to 177 pairs of legs. The average number of legs is 35 pairs, one pair per segment except for the first one segment and the last two. The appendages of the first segment are modified into jaw like claws equipped with poison glands with which it paralyzes its prey. The last pair of legs is pincer-like. The smaller centipedes move fast running with the body held straight. The larger variety move relatively slowly and show sinuous movements. These animals typically remain hidden by day under stones, dry leaves, bark, and ground litter and hunt small insects at night. The small centipedes are harmless to humans. The larger centipedes could pose a severe risk. Its sting may not kill man but could cause severe pain, burning sensation, redness, and swelling. The largest tropical species Scolopendra gigantea may reach a size of 12 inches or 30 centimeters. It will be interesting to know the difference between insects and centipedes. Insect has a body that is divisible into head, thorax, and abdomen. The term ‘true bugs’ is used to describe insects with sucking mouth parts and with forewings thickened toward the base. The term ‘worm’ is used to describe a variety of slender, soft-bodied animals such as the earthworms. Centipedes may not be described as bugs, insects, or worms. However, it will be correct to call them as creepy creatures as they move along with the body close to the ground and exhibit a creeping movement that is similar to the movement displayed by a snake. In common usage, the word ‘creep’ is used to describe a thing that arouses a sense of fear. As the Book of Genesis suggests, God may have created a variety of creepy things before creating man in His own image. Man has rational, and moral nature like God’s and man has no inner impulse or drive to sin. Man has free will to obey God’s will. There is nothing in man’s environment that can compel man to sin. But, man could be solicited to disobey God and to commit sin. The solicitation to sin could only come from outside. The “Fall” of man is narrated in the Book of Genesis, Chapter 3. The voice of ‘The Serpent’ that deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden was the voice of Satan, the adversary of both God and man. The voice of ‘The Tempter’ comes to man from outside himself and hence man has to live with a sense of fear and be cautious while contacting creepy creatures. Centipede could be an exception as it may not solicit man to perform immoral, and corrupt sexual acts.
LORD CENTIPEDE – WHOLE CENTIPEDE – SAINT CENTIPEDE :
Lord Centipede is the name of a music band that is very popular with a lot of young people living in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area. I would not be surprised if this music band gets international acclaim and recognition. They deliver music with a sting; its nasty but enticing. Young people love it as the music provokes them to experience life with sharpness. The Centipede that interests me is called ‘Whole Centipede’. He has the nature of a Centipede that I have described but he has also the ability to sing and play musical instruments. He could be one of those fallen angels; the bad angels who had participated in a deliberate, self-determined rebellion against God and got expelled from the Heaven. Some of these bad angels spent over thousand years living in abyss and have returned to planet Earth as they cannot return to the Heaven. By nature, these bad angels get attracted by a variety of creepy creatures and often reveal themselves in the bodily form of those creatures. Satan, the Leader of fallen angels is extremely wicked and he reveals himself in the bodily form of ‘The Serpent’. The ‘Whole Centipede’ has revealed himself in the bodily form of a human being, and is known as ‘Sir.SAMIR’, or ‘Lord. SAMEER’. During day time, he is mostly pleasant and his nature is revealed during his music shows and performances. He can literally bite you with his music and song. He mercilessly punches people with his lyrics. He arouses a sense of fear when he sings and plays. However, the ‘Whole Centipede’ is not immoral, or corrupt like other bad angels. He acquired a good characteristic from the Centipede Class to which he belongs. Centipedes are a class or group of Arthropods that do not exhibit the sexual, or reproductive behavior called ‘Copulation’. The male centipede does not copulate with a female centipede or with another male. It does not need a female and has no requirement called ‘cohabitation’. There is no direct bodily contact between the male and female centipedes. In other words, the male centipede sleeps alone and the bed or ground remains clean. The ‘Whole Centipede’ has this behavioral trait and he prefers clean, bed linen that are not soiled or stained by activities like copulation. Further, he shows a sense of passion, a strong urge, intense drive, and very deep motivation to maintain his bed linen in a clean, and good condition at all times. These admirable qualities and behavioral traits to avoid copulation have helped in selecting him for a new assignment in the ‘Whole Heaven’. He has been appointed as the Director of Housekeeping Services and Housekeeping Operations in the ‘Whole Heaven’ where the Heavenly Maidens are prohibited from providing Housekeeping Services. In the ‘Whole Heaven’ the operations require a change of bed linen at least six times on any given Heavenly Day with no Holidays. It is a very demanding task and the high standards of Heavenly Service stipulate that the bed linen must be always be clean, and fresh while the Heavenly residents enjoy their Heavenly pleasures as per the schedule planned by the Director of Front-End Operations. Only a ‘Whole Centipede’ who has no desire for engaging in copulation can provide such important Housekeeping Service with a total sense of dedication. Whole Dude is very optimistic that the ‘Whole Centipede’ would soon be promoted and be elevated to the status of ‘Saint Centipede’ for rendering excellent service with a sense of Devotion and Dedication.
Whole Dude says that in Whole Heaven we need Whole Discipline and Whole Dedication to obtain Whole Pleasure. What do you want to say???

WHOLE DUDE – WHOLE HEAVEN:
The New Testament Books of LUKE( Chapter 24, verse #51 ) and ACTS( Chapter 1, Verses #1-9 ) describe ‘Ascension’, the return of the risen Christ to Heaven on the 40th day after the Resurrection. The last Book of The New Testament called ‘THE REVELATION’ by saint John describes the revelation of Jesus Christ. In Chapter 21, verse #1, it is revealed: “And I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth; for the first Heaven and the first Earth were passed away…” A new Heaven is in the plan and Whole Dude has a plan for a New, “WHOLE HEAVEN.” The term “WHOLE” refers to characteristics such as auspicious, sound, not broken, not defective, not damaged, not injured, and not diseased. The first Heaven cannot be said to be “WHOLE.” There are very serious problems in the first Heaven which cannot be ignored.
WHO ARE ANGELS? :
Angels(Greek. Angelos – messenger ) are described as heavenly beings created by God and they are the original inhabitants or Citizens of The Kingdom of Heaven. Whereas, earthly human beings created by God have yet to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Angels have higher dignity than man but unlike man, they constitute a Company and not a Race. Human Races have developed from original, known pair of people such as Adam and Eve, and Abraham and Sarah. Angels are not omnipotent and they are not omniscient. Angels assist, protect, and deliver God’s people. Sometimes, Angels are used to guard and protect some places. Angels while they are in Heaven seem to spend much of their time in the worship and praise of God. They deliver God’s messages, they execute God’s judgment, and they serve in Heaven to execute God’s will towards individuals and nations. Angels are often dispatched by God to interpret God’s will, or plan, or commandment to specific people God has chosen. Angels can guide the affairs of nations. God uses them to punish His enemies which may include other Angels who may oppose God’s Plan. Jesus said that the Angels do not marry and do not die( Gospel According to Saint Luke, Chapter 20, verses# 34-36 ). However, it appears that Angels could have sexual relations and an Angel had married a human female and had a child. Angels can exist as ‘Spirits’ without a bodily form, but, very often they reveal themselves in bodily form; some appear as Heavenly Maidens, and others as Heavenly Saints and both have the ability to fly in the air. With or without bodily form, Angels are personal beings and they operate under the permissive will of God. It is important to note that there is a vast multitude of Angels in the Heaven( The Book of Revelation, Chapter 5, verse# 11).
THE PROBLEMS OF HEAVEN :
The Angels are originally created to exist as holy beings. Some Angels, after a period of probation, fell from their state of innocence. These Angels who lost their original holiness became corrupt with a sense of self-pride. They lost the sense of humility and have become arrogant, or stiff-necked. After becoming corrupt, they made no attempt to repent and made no attempt to return to the original state of holiness. The unholy Angels turned evil and had started opposing the work of God, and interfere in the execution of God’s Plan. These Angels who were confirmed evil had joined together in a deliberate, self-determined rebellion against God. Satan( Greek. Satanas; Hebrew. Satan – adversary ) is the leader of the Angels who rebelled against God and they were expelled from Heaven after a very fierce battle.
Satan and his followers are the source of evil in the world. These Fallen Angels tempt man to betray God and encourage disobedienece or disrespect towards God. Satan is known by numerous other names such as A-baddon(Hebrew), A-polly-on(Greek), Beezebub, Belial, Devil(Greek. Diabolos-Slanderer), Lucifer, Prince of Darkness, and Evil One. Some of these evil Angels were sent to Hell and remain there. Some evil Angels were left free after 1, 000 years of imprisonment in Hell. None of them have repented and have not changed their attitude and behavior. Satan and his followers continue to oppose the work of God and they oppose God’s plan to redeem human souls to save them from sin.
THE PLAN FOR NEW, “WHOLE HEAVEN” :
Heaven is the abode of God, or The House of the Father. It is also called The Kingdom of Father, The Kingdom of God, The Kingdom of Christ, The Kingdom of Heaven, or the Paradise. Heaven is the place for the righteous to lead eternal, Everlasting Life. The Gospel According to Matthew, Chapter 5, verse# 12 declares: “REJOICE, AND BE EXCEEDING GLAD: FOR GREAT IS YOUR REWARD IN HEAVEN..” Heaven is the place of perfect happiness and eternal communion with God. The first Heaven has shown the problem of corrupt, evil, unruly, disobedient, and rebellious behavior of some Angels who had the full benefit of a life in eternal communion with God. If Angels, the heavenly beings created by God could turn against God, there would be problems for earthly human beings who may arrive in Heaven when fully redeemed. It calls for a plan to enforce a sense of Discipline, a conduct of Humility, and an attitude of Respect and Obedience. Whole Dude has identified the following problems that exist in the First Heaven and thinks that these problems have the potential to turn holy beings towards corrupt and evil behavior.
1. In Heaven, the inhabitants do not experience hunger or thirst. It sounds good but, it has all the potential to make the person arrogant and become contemptuous. It will lead the person to imagine that the existence is not dependent upon Divine Providence. God is the creator of Angels and man. Both must exist with food and drink supplied by God.
2. In Heaven, there is no Sunrise or Sunset. There is no need for Sun or Moon as God’s Light illuminates the Heaven all the time. It too sounds very good but, it has all the potential to encourage disorganized or disruptive behavior. Alternating periods of Light and Darkness help people to conduct their activities in a systematic or organized manner and observe periods of rest or sleep. In Heaven, the inhabitants tend to indulge in sustained activities without the need to schedule their activities. The inhabitants ignore that they need the permissive will of God for their activities.
2. Heavenly inhabitants do not marry each other. They do not die. Some are male and some are female. Some appear to be very young and some are adults. The corrupt and evil behavior in Heaven may have originated because of a lack of restraint on their mutual interactions. It is important that the Citizens of Heaven meet each other or interact with each other after prior approval and after prior scheduled appointments.
3. God expects man to repent and seek the Kingdom of Heaven. This Rule must be applied to all inhabitants of Heaven. Because, as they have already established residence in the Heaven, Angels are not required to repent; and the evil, and corrupt Angels have no recourse other than being condemned to eternal fire in Hell. It is important to establish the Standards for Heavenly Behavior and Conduct and give the offenders a chance to change their behavior and regain the lost holiness.
Keeping those serious concerns in mind, the “Whole Heaven” intends to create a New Heaven as the perfect place of Joy and Happiness to live in eternal communion with God.
Mr. Boggs an expert on Torture is selected for the appointment of The Director of Heavenly Torture and Behavioral Therapy Operations at the New, Whole Heaven. All redeemed souls who arrive The Gates of Whole Heaven would be asked to register their names at The Department of Heavenly Torture and Behavioral Therapy Operations. The new arrivals would be required to attend an Orientation Course to fully understand the consequences for their behavior. Mr. Boggs has stated that delinquent behavior must be fully rejected and claimed that the Citizens of Whole Heaven must be fully disciplined by the use of torture to preserve the Peace, Harmony, and Tranquility of the Heavenly Establishment, the abode of God. At this moment, Mr. Boggs techniques of torture cannot be publicly disclosed to protect the operational security of Whole Heaven. However, Mr. Boggs has suggested that at a very minimum level, the torture technique would include spanking or smacking on the exposed buttocks. He had claimed that a good spanking does a lot of good to change behavior. Mr. Boggs has agreed that he would demonstrate his spanking and smacking technique to verify its effectiveness. The Rules of Conduct and Discipline; The Regulations for Heavenly Behavior would be applied to all Heavenly Citizens including the newly selected Executive Officers of Whole Heaven. Mr. Charles is designated as The Director of Administrative Services, Mr. Joshua is designated as The Director of Foood and Pantry Operations, Mr. Sameer is designated as The Director of Housekeeping Services, and Mr. Scott is designated as The Director of Front-End Services. Mr. Boggs, The Director of Heavenly Torture and Behavioral Therapy Operations would not be accountable to any of these Executive Officers. Mr. Boggs has agreed to demonstrate the efficacy of the spanking and smacking technique and in the initial, experimental trial; all the newly appointed Executive Officers would be tested by Mr. Boggs before they receive their letters of appointment. I say that, Whole Heaven is a Place of “WHOLE DISCIPLINE.” What do you want to say???
U.S. President Obama has announced on June 15th that he would permit Young Migrants to remain in U.S. under a proposed initiative called “Deferred Action.” His bold, and compassionate executive action to help migrants who had arrived in U.S. as children to some extent makes the ‘DREAM ACT’ to come true in the lives of several students who have entirely grew up here. “They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper,” President Obama said in announcing the new policy in the White House Rose Garden on Friday, June 15, 2012. These are young people who, though no fault of their own, were brought to this country as children, lacked the intent to violate the law and be provided relief from administrative action like removal from the country. Secretary Janet Napolitano has issued a policy directive to implement the decision made by the U.S. President. It has been proposed to set the age limit at 30 Years. There are graduate students who have arrived in the country as children and have remained here all their lives and have crossed this age limit of 30 Years.
Whole Dude is seeking your kind attention to the problem faced by these graduate students who are not able to seek employment benefit and need immediate relief. They can significantly contribute to the society on the basis of their education and qualifications they earned while studying in the U.S. Colleges and Universities. Current students must be given age relaxation and be permitted to apply for “Deferred Action” under the new initiative of President Obama.
Whole Dude is respectfully asking his readers to call or write to their U.S. Senators and U.S. House Representatives or forward this blog post to their e-mail address and request them to contact Mr. James McCament, Chief of the USCIS Office of Legislative Affairs to make the necessary amendment to the 30-Year Age limit proposed by Secretary Janet Napolitano in her Policy Directive and Memorandum issued on June 15, 2012.
The ancient Indian tradition is derived from the principles shared by VEDANTA. The Divine Song known as ‘The Bhagavad Gita’ in Chapter XVIII, Moksha Upadesa Yoga( The Perfection of Renunciation ), verses 13 and 14 state that according to ‘VEDANTA’, there are Five Causes in the accomplishment of any kind of Action; 1. The Place of Action; 2. The Doer; 3. The Senses; 4. The Endeavor; and ultimately 5. The Supersoul or the Supreme Will; the Spiritual Originator of Action. The Executive Action taken by President Obama is in the nature of a Spiritual Action. Whole Dude describes Spiritualism and Spirituality as the potency that generates Peace, Harmony, and Tranquility in the living experience of an individual and between individuals of a social group, or social community. Whole Dude supports the ‘DREAM ACT’ and this Executive Action called “Deferred Action” is viewed as Whole Action or Spiritual Action as it promotes Peace, Harmony, and Tranquility in the lives of those young individuals who still exist as “MIGRANTS” without Immigration Status.
I say, PEACE and ask you to support WHOLE ACTION to establish WHOLE PEACE in the lives of other people who live with you in your social community without harming others. What do you say? Kindly share your thoughts and views and join me in Whole Conversation.
WHOLE DUDE – WHOLE SPIRITUALITY : THE WHOLE JOURNEY CALLED EMPLOYMENT:
Whole Dude’s employment is described as a “JOURNEY.” Whole Dude often describes his Love of “Whole Food” and his employment has given the insight to know the true or real nature of “Whole Food.” Whole Dude has demonstrated the fact of his Love; the Love of “Whole Food” during a Life’s “JOURNEY” that is measured as “Service Hours.” He has already rendered “WHOLE SERVICE” of over 32, 000 hours with no reported unscheduled absence from work. Over the last 15 years of employment “JOURNEY”, while keeping a status called “Full Employment”, Whole Dude has not missed a single day of work due to illness, sickness, or injury. Apparently, Whole Dude does not find the Service to be dull, uninteresting, monotonous, tedious, or boring. The lack of boredom during the course of employment could be verified by the fact that Whole Dude has accumulated over 2, 057 hours of “PAID TIME OFF” or paid vacation time of about one full year. In other words, Whole Dude says that the experience of this “WHOLE JOURNEY” called employment is that of psychological satisfaction; mental contentment that establishes happiness in mind and joy in heart. To verify the accuracy of this statement, Whole Dude is disclosing the fact that he does not use alcohol, tobacco, or any other recreational substance to find happiness in his Life’s Journey. To attest this fact, Whole Dude had participated in Community Volunteer Service over several years during the course of his employment; and the Volunteers are routinely screened to verify that they do not use drugs or alcohol. The reason for finding happiness and joy in living experience is because of Whole Dude’s respectful relationship, his partnership, his association, his bonding, and his connection with a nourishing substance that he calls “Whole Food.” His employment has given the insight to know the true or real nature of “Whole Food.” Whole Dude defines “WHOLE FOOD” as the nutritional substance that supports man’s physical, mental, social, moral, and spiritual well-being. These five components of well-being are important to have the experience of peace, harmony, and tranquility in human life. From the beginning of human history, the ideas about spiritualism, and spirituality included a serious concern to find peace, harmony, and tranquility in the living human experience. During the course of his employment, Whole Dude discovered that Food serves the function of a spiritual medium that fosters unity between man’s body, mind, and soul which generates the peace, harmony, and tranquility that man experiences in his living condition.
No man is truly capable of independent existence that excludes the social community and the physical environment in which he exists. Whole Dude is saying that he is supporting his biological existence because of an employment that provides a social community and a favorable environment which is keeping his Life’s Journey on sound tracks. The term “TRACKS” is used to describe a pair of parallel steel rails on which freight cars, passenger cars, street cars, and other rolling stock are drawn by powered locomotives. During 1880s, the width of railroad tracks were standardized at 4 feet, 8 and half inches(1.44 m). The railroad tracks are laid on a firm, and well-prepared ground to ensure their stability and a durable metal like steel is used to support its sustained use. The “JOURNEY” called Employment that proceeds on the right “TRACKS” is a “WHOLE JOURNEY” and Whole Dude names those “TRACKS” as “WHOLE SPIRITUALITY.”
I say place the “WHOLE JOURNEY” of your”WHOLE EMPLOYMENT” on the right “TRACKS”, what do you want to say? Please share your thoughts and concerns about your “WHOLE JOURNEY” called WHOLE EMPLOYMENT.”
WHOLE DUDE – WHOLE MAN : THE MANTRA OF SUKUMA BA – SUKUMA BA- SUKUMA BA :
This is a true story about the ‘MANTRA’ called “SUKUMA BA, SUKUMA BA, SUKUMA BA” as revealed by my friend Hoshea(Hebrew – Salvation). I had received a phone call while I was extremely busy and the person who called me was asking if I could provide something that was missing. I was pained that I was not able to provide the product or service that was urgently needed. I was struggling to find the right words as I wanted to give an assurance and a sense of hope that I could deliver or provide the product if I am given sufficient amount of time. My friend Hoshea, who was listening to my phone conversation, recognized my sense of agony, and the feelings of disappointment for my inability to provide what was needed by the caller. Hoshea told me that my response to the phone call is not proper. He told me the secret of providing and revealed to me the nature of the True Provider. Hoshea assured me that the LORD is the True Provider and directed me that man must always invoke the blessings of the LORD, the True Provider. I had asked Hoshea as to what is the correct way to respond to such a phone call or when people ask for help which I may not be able to provide. Then Hoshea, true to his name, revealed the ‘Mantra’ that he had learned from Prophet Moses. Hoshea chanted the ‘Mantra’ for my benefit: “SUKUMA BA, SUKUMA BA, SUKUMA BA.” He told that the magical potency of this ‘Mantra’ would invoke the blessings of the LORD as the LORD is the True Provider. The Lord hears the prayer, and knows the nature of the problem, and provides what is needed or a replacement to provide the satisfaction that would uplift man from his misery and plight. I asked Hoshea to explain the meaning of the words of this ‘Mantra’ of “SUKUMA BA, SUKUMA BA, SUKUMA BA.” He had narrated the story from the First Book of Moses that is called The Book of Genesis, the First Book of The Old Testament.
WHOLE DUDE – WHOLE MAN :
The First Book of Moses called GENESIS describes the creation of man: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God. He created him; male and female. He created them.”( Genesis, Chapter 1, verse 27 ). Man is a perfect creation and hence the man created by God is a Whole Man which means that man is auspicious, in sound health, not diseased, not injured, not broken, not damaged, not defective, intact, containing all the elements or parts and is complete.
A TEST FOR MAN’S OBEDIENCE AND THE SAVING OF MAN BY A ‘MANTRA’ :
The Book of GENESIS, Chapter 22 describes the story of Issac, the only son of Father Abraham. God wanted to test Abraham : “Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Issac, whom you love, and go the Land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”(verse # 2). While Abraham and Issac proceeded to the designated place of worship, Issac spoke to his father: “But Issac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am my son.” Then he said, “Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”(verse # 7). And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.”(verse # 8) Then Abraham built an altar at the place God had told him, and Abraham placed the wood in order; and bound Issac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood(verse # 9). Hoshea revealed that, it was at that moment of desperation, Issac had yelled to express his sense of shock and disappointment that he had become the sacrificial lamb chosen by LORD GOD. Issac loudly protested saying the magical words, “SUKUMA BA, SUKUMA BA, SUKUMA BA.” The ‘Mantra worked and God listened to the prayer and took action to PROVIDE the lamb for the burnt offering. Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ramcaught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son(verse # 13) and Abraham called the name of the place, “The-LORD-Will-Provide”; as it is said to this day.”(verse # 14)

Whole Dude says, “BAA, BAA, BAA” and what have you got to say. Please join me in the Whole Conversation.
Hegel developed theories of Reality, Absolute Spirit, Absolute Mind, Absolute Reason, Whole Truth, World Soul and others. He had influenced most facets of modern philosophy. According to Hegel, reality is Absolute Mind, Reason or Spirit which manifests itself in both natural and human history. This Mind is universal and therefore cannot be identified with the mind of any particular person. He treated all reality as the creation of Mind or Spirit. The philosophy of Idealism makes the attempt to account for all objects in nature and experience as representatives of the mind( ideas ). Hegel identified the whole of Reality with what he called ‘the Absolute’ and interpreted the whole of human history as the progressive self-realization of this Absolute Spirit. His famous dictum: “The real is rational and the rational real”, is an expression of the identity of reality and the rational process. Because reality is rational, it acts in accordance with the laws of reasoning. To understand the nature of thought, then, is to understand the nature of reality as a whole. Hegel held that all previous philosophical speculations had failed to give a clear view of reality. As per his view, the attempt to understand the apparently individual and unconnected phenomena of nature, history, and human life through separate categories of thought is utterly mistaken. He insisted that Reality can only be understood as a totality: “the Truth is the Whole.” At the center of the universe, Hegel posited an enveloping Absolute Spirit that guides all reality, including human reason. His absolute Idealism envisages a World-Soul that develops from, and is known through a process of change and progress termed as Hegelian Dialectic. He described the dialectical nature of Mind’s activity. According to the Laws of Dialectic, one idea or concept or proposition(‘thesis’) inevitably generates its opposite(‘antithesis’), their conflict or interaction generates a new concept or ‘Synthesis’ which in turn becomes the ‘thesis’ of a new triad. Thus he developed the concept of Mind or Spirit that manifested itself in a set of contradictions and oppositions that it ultimately integrated and united without eliminating either pole or reducing one to the other. His philosophy enables human beings to comprehend the historical unfolding of the ‘Absolute’. He traced the progression of consciousness from sense perception to absolute knowledge. He had influenced people such as Jean Paul Sartre( Existentialism ) and Karl Marx( Dialectical Materialism and Communism ), and had influenced the development of Positivism( Auguste Comte ), and Analytic Philosophy.
WholeDude.com welcomes the concept of Whole Truth and will seek to apply it for developing a marketing philosophy and marketing strategy for business operations in the retail sector. If human consumption is the ‘thesis’, renewal, regeneration, and restoration would be the ‘antithesis’. The interaction and conflict between these two concepts will generate the new ‘Synthesis’ called Progressive Development. Whole Dude says that we must recycle, and reuse our resources and reduce consumption of resources that cannot be replaced. Please join me in a Whole Conversation to share a Whole World of ‘ideas’.
This is a real story revealed to me by a real person who prefers to wear Levi jeans and collects paychecks from Taxpayers. He had served as a Staff Sergeant in U.S. Army and had participated in Iraq War and his Unit was deployed at several locations in Iraq including the Capital City of Baghdad. I believe that he could be the reincarnation of Saint Matthew, the author of the Gospel according to Matthew. However, this Matthew who wears Levi jeans is prone to anger and to distinguish him from Saint Matthew I would call him Angry Matthew. You will easily understand his proneness to anger, he angers very fast; once he tried to literally blow me away into bits when he attacked the car that I was driving with a deadly missile. I had luckily survived that attack; my car got hit and rolled over several times and was totally destroyed and yet I escaped unhurt. Angry Matthew amused himself taking photo images of this terrible car mishap using his mobile phone device. My friend, ‘Hoshea’ likes to describe Angry Matthew as an “Instigator”, a person who instigates great trouble. Angry Matthew frequently uses costumes of Dracula or other Ghoulish personalities to reveal his blood thirsty nature. Since he is the reincarnation of Apostle Matthew, he also displays his love for his colleagues and often serves them with delicious meals. I am able to share the Gospel Story that Angry Matthew revealed to me while he was in a moment of relaxed mood when I had inquired him if he had ever fired his personal weapon during his entire tour of duty in Iraq. Angry Matthew never got a chance to use his personal weapon and he is still very disappointed about this missed opportunity and a life of forced celibacy in Iraq. The Whole Gospel According to Angry Matthew reveals the prophecy of Jesus Christ’s Second Coming. It is very important to carefully understand the most important elements of the Gospel According to Saint Matthew and its relevance to the Gospel Story that is revealed by Angry Matthew. To introduce to you the ‘Whole Gospel’, the Gospel Story According to Angry Matthew, that describes the vision of Jesus Christ’s Second Coming, there are two central events associated with the Coming of Jesus as the Savior must be discussed.
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SAINT MATTHEW :
The Gospel of Matthew was written in Greek language; is the most highly valued, most popular, and widely read of the four Gospels. This is revealed not only by its position in the canon, it is found in first place in most of the known lists of the Gospels but also by the fact of its widespread citation and for it is by far the most often quoted Gospel. Matthew, the Apostle(The Book of Matthew, Chapter 10, verse 3) was eyewitness to the most significant events of Christ’s life and mission. Matthew(Greek. Maththaios) was initially known as Levi, a tax collector(telones) whom Jesus met at the tax office(Matthew, Chapter 9, verse 9). Levi changed his name to Matthew( Hebrew. “Gift of Yahweh”) and it may mean “Amittai” or “True”, when he became a disciple of Jesus. He carefully recorded all the teachings and sayings of Jesus and the Book of Matthew is the teaching Gospel par excellence. Matthew’s Gospel is also the Gospel of fulfillment and it is especially concerned with showing that Christ is the fulfillment of the Revelations of The Old Testament. Matthew’s Gospel is the historical record of Jesus Christ, the King of Jews. It describes the birth of the King, the preparation of the King, the Law of the kingdom, the power of the King, the proclamation of the kingdom, the rejection of the King, the growth of the kingdom, the Mission of the King, the fellowship of the kingdom, the Triumphal entry of King into Jerusalem, the consummation of the kingdom, the death and Resurrection of the King, and finally the great challenge of the kingdom. I would like to focus upon the most important event of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem as a King in a ceremonial procession.
CROSS AND DONKEY CROSS – THE SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATION OF REDEMPTION :
Cross(Greek. Stauros) : There are three biblical uses of the term: first, the wooden instrument of torture; second, the Cross as a symbolic representation of redemption; third, death on the Cross, i.e., Crucifixion. The English word ‘Cross’ is derived from the Latin ‘Crux’. The Cross existed in different forms, the most important form is known as ‘The Crux immissa’, the type of Cross usually presented in Art in which the upright beam extends above the cross beam, and traditionally this depiction of Cross is held to be the Cross on which the ‘Redeemer’ suffered and died. It is often called the ‘Latin form of Cross. Because of the sacrificial death of the Savior on the Cross, it is presented as the medium of Reconciliation(The Epistle of Apostle Paul to Ephesians, Chapter 2, verse 16) between man and God. In The Epistle of Apostle Paul to the Colossians, Chapter 1, verse 20, it is stated that Peace has been effected through the Cross and Chapter 2, verse 14 also claims that the penalties of the law have been removed from the believer by the Cross. The Epistle of Apostle Paul to the Galatians, Chapter 2, verse 20 says that man is crucified with Christ and lives by faith of the Son of God. Crucifixion is a dreaded event, and in common usage, the cares and troubles of life are often compared to a Cross. Kindly examine the connection between Cross and the humble Donkey which man used as a beast of burden.
Donkeys are domesticated descendants from African ass( true ass ) known as Eqqus asinus which belongs to the Horse family of Equidae. Donkeys derived from Nubian and Somalian subspecies of African wild ass have served mankind since 4,000 B.C. It is tamed and trained for work. It is sturdy, surefooted, known for its endurance and for its ability to carry heavy loads. Donkeys were a fundamental part of economy, they undertook heavy work on the farm and sometimes used for personal transportation. In the southwestern United States, the small donkey is known as ‘Burro’, the word for donkey in Spanish language. Many Americans are very fond of eating ‘burrito’, a Mexican dish consisting of a flour tortilla wrapped around a filling of meat, cheese, refried beans, etc. However, most Americans are not familiar with the crosswise stripes on Donkey’s back that could be termed as ‘Donkey Cross’. Donkey is frequently mentioned in the Books of Bible; Prophet Abraham’s journey of testing, with his son Issac, was made with a donkey(The First Book of Moses, Genesis, Chapter 22, verses 3,5), Balaam’s donkey was given the temporary power of speech in order to rebuke the foolish prophet(The Fourth Book of Moses, Numbers, Chapter 22, verses 21-33), Israelites captured some 61,000 donkeys from the Midianites(The Fourth Book of Moses, Numbers, Chapter 31, verse 34). Mule is the offspring of a male donkey and a horse mare and it is sterile. King David introduced the use of mule for riding. In the Biblical times, mules were used by kings, officials, and army officers for personal transportation. Jesus Christ, the one coequal with God descended to the agony and torture of death due to Crucifixion by riding on the back of a donkey to fulfill the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9:
“Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you.
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.”
It is very interesting and important to note the difference in the narration of this event. In the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 21, verse 2, Jesus instructs two of his disciples, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a (female) donkey tied, and a colt(young, male donkey) with her. Loose them and bring them to Me.” In the Gospel According to Mark, Chapter 11, verse 2, in the Gospel According to Luke, Chapter 19, verse 30, and in the Gospel According to John, Chapter 12, verse 14, no mention was made about the female donkey which was needed by Jesus and fetched by His disciples. Many Biblical scholars are not able explain this apparent discrepancy in the four Gospel accounts and they are not certain if one or two donkeys are involved and the gender identity of the donkey(s) that Jesus used for His victorious entry into Jerusalem. The four Gospel accounts are incomplete and have not revealed the Whole Story of the Donkey and the Donkey Cross. In the Gospel According to Angry Matthew, this discrepancy about the number and gender of donkeys is fully resolved and the donkey proudly displays its Donkey Cross to give a true sense of joy and bliss to Angry Matthew and changed his life completely.
THE WHOLE GOSPEL – THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ANGRY MATTHEW :
On a very dark Sunday night in the City of Baghdad, Angry Matthew was on duty at a checkpoint with members of his Infantry Company conducting vital security operations to defend the City from attacks by insurgents. It was calm and there were no suspicious movements. Suddenly, the very alert Angry Matthew noticed a pair of donkeys slowly marching towards his post under the cover of the darkness. Donkeys and Donkey carts in Baghdad have been used by insurgents to fire rockets and missiles. There was no cart and they had approached the checkpoint without making any kind of noise. Angry Matthew was intently observing this donkey pair using his night vision goggles and was surprised to see the shadow of a person riding on the back of the lead donkey. He wanted to immediately shoot at that shadowy figure and alerted his other buddies to get ready for action. The buddies calmly reacted and told Angry Matthew that they could not confirm the presence of any person riding the back of the donkey. They decided to withhold fire and wanted to continue their observation. Angry Matthew’s mood suddenly changed and he lost his sense of suspicion and mistrust and all alone he decided to move closer to the donkeys to get an intimate look. He dropped his gun in the checkpoint and moved forward like a curious kid, and he was seeing a donkey at such a close distance for the first time in his entire life. He was amazed when he saw the vision or apparition of Jesus riding on the back of the donkey. He immediately fell to his knees, and started shouting, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, My King and My Savior.” He started jumping with joy and went dancing around the donkey pair, running in circles. He soon recognized the gender identity of the donkey pair; one is a female, and the second one is a colt, or young male. The donkeys understand human moods, human language and human actions. The female enjoyed the moments of devoted attention and the sense of pure happiness in the actions of Angry Matthew. The colt started getting aroused by the cheerful mood of its female companion. As Angry Matthew continued to dance around them, the colt swiftly mounted on the back of the female and started to penetrate it with deep, rhythmic pushes with its very long, strong, personal organ that looked like a short barrel gun. When the colt placed its forefeet on top of the female, and stood on its hind legs, Angry Matthew could immediately recognize the ‘Donkey Cross’ on its back. He immediately accepted the Cross as the medium of reconciliation, and as the Symbol of Peace, and felt totally relieved from all the burdens and penalties of his hard, military life in Baghdad. Angry Matthew did not want to miss the glorious view of the ‘Donkey Cross’. He encouraged the colt to stay up and to keep pushing and mating with the lively female. He spontaneously loved the act of Lovemaking. He burst into a song:
” Make Love, Love, Love, and make more Love,
I have no need for War, War, War and no more War.”
The donkey pair fully shared the excitement and enthusiasm and performed the longest ever recorded mating dance. As the dawn slowly arrived, the donkey pair moved out and vanished quickly without any trace. Angry Matthew simply collapsed to the ground. His buddies from the checkpoint quickly moved to give him help. They tried and could not get him to respond. Without wasting any more time, they got him evacuated to the Field Hospital where Angry Matthew recovered his consciousness after three days. By the time, he opened his eyes, Angry Matthew found that he cannot do the job of being a Sergeant in U.S. Army. He is fully reconciled, he has found Peace and accepted medical disability pension to find satisfaction in Life seeking the memory of the Donkey Cross and the mystical vision of his Savior who came to him riding on the back of a humble Donkey of Baghdad. He fully realized as to why Jesus had asked His disciples to fetch the female donkey and the colt. He got a glimpse of his previous life; his life as Apostle Matthew, the witness of Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. After the ride into Jerusalem, Jesus allowed the donkey pair to relax and enjoy the moment. Jesus as He prepared Himself for the ultimate sacrifice, wanted man to recognize that Lovemaking is not a sin and it is a natural God-given instinct. He gave permission to the young, virile, colt to fully display the Donkey Cross on its back while it enjoyed the feast of ravishing the female partner. The Cross is not inconsistent with expression of Sexual Love and does not condemn man to a life of total celibacy and total sexual abstinence.Now, Angry Matthew knows that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ would be on a dark Sunday night, and he is expecting that the mystery of the Second Coming would come into open, and full display of all mankind in the City of Baghdad.
