blue pill




Jesus is using this launch page to create a healthy boundary, division (veil) in my mind and in my life.


I am the kind of person who does easily get caught (often awkwardly) explaining to people WHAT a "Living Parable" is, or HOW (step-by-step) to build a "Jesus-Life Temple", or WHY Jesus has led me to worship him in a peculiar way, and other arcane minutia.

In other words, often I'm like an actor on a stage who, rather than just acting, I tend to stop and explain myself--- and interpret for the audience (like a narrator, or a teacher), what they are observing me do on the stage, what props we are using and why, how the seats they are sitting in were made (how they can make similar theater seats if Jesus tells then to), what's happening BACK STAGE as I do my performance, etc. etc.

Mmmm.  Doesn't make for a very good, let alone enticing and moving performance, for most people.

Including myself.

But now, hallelujah! Jesus is having me create much more room in my life for full-on immersion of my soul into THEE DRAMA (Jesus' drama).  (Jesus tells me that as a Jesus Street Preacher, during the 2020's and 2030's it will be more important for me to facilitate people in having a heart/mind-changing "experience", rather than a clinical, pedantic oration.

Jesus tells me,
in the words of the band Rush, that I, along with others "Who wish to see, Those who wish to be, Must put aside the alienation, Get on with the fascination, The real relation, The underlying theme...[we must] Catch the mist, Catch the myth, Catch the mystery, Catch the drift."

And get on with it we will...


With a caveat, of course.

Jesus understands that it is good--- so wonderful, beautiful, a miracle, magical --- to just be swallowed by Jesus' INFORMAL living parables.  Without having to dive into lengthy explanations or justifications or DIY how-to steps. 

In fact, the place that Jesus is now taking me (MORE DEEPLY) is where Jesus wants me to be, most of the time, most of the time, most of the time:  just completely swallowed up by his Living Waters ("drowning in the Sea of Love, w
here everyone would love to drown"). 

But Jesus says, "Wait a minute baby..., there are some jots and tittles (practical considerations) that are unavoidable, as I help you Exodus to the Promise Land.  You have a particular mission that requires intermission."

Jesus is helping me create a space for intermission, Selah.  Under the merry-go-round.  Blue-pill box.

And here it is:

The "NEXT" symbol, found below, is a special link that will take me---and those people like me, who, because of their Jesus-earth-mission and/or personal needs, must have more FORMAL/ EXPLICIT explanationS of, and justificationS for, what the heck is going on at "Jesus School"---through the veil (back stage).

The terms "red pill" and "blue pill" refer to a choice between the willingness to learn a potentially unsettling or life-changing truth by taking the red pill or remaining in contented ignorance with the blue pill. The terms refer to a scene in the 1999 film The Matrix


BOTTOM LINE: Architects and engineers in Zion, who (like me) are called to build "early Zion", need to look and work "under the hood" (and on the edge)---attending to specific details that require great concentration and energy.  (If you are learning to play the piano, while you are also learning to tune pianos, while you are also learning to build a whole new kind of piano with an imaginary friend who is real who is the master builder of the UNIVERSE, well then... you have to take notes and practice---you can't just perform and play Ode To Joy all the time).  Architects and engineers often need very lengthy, comprehensive, explicit explanations and justifications.  That are continually updated, revised, committed to memory, etc.


Well, not always, but sometimes. 

Yet inescapable, and necessary.

Another metaphor:  Architects and engineers can't always just do what most drivers do. . ., "Yeah, yeah, yeah I think I get it, . . . now can I have the  keys please" and then drive off on their merry way. 

Instead, Jesus has tasked
Architects and engineers of "early Zion" (including me) with building a new car (a Jesus Car). . . or, in this Zion case (metaphor aside),  a brand new, Jesus-centric CULTure, that will replace, and take Jesus' children far beyond the money-centric / carnal-centric CULTure we have inhertited.

Thus, of necessity, Jesus has created this merry-go-round portal ("blue pill" box), that you are looking at now, as a place for us Architects and engineers to do our OH so logical, practical, intellectual,  deep-dives.  Backstage.  Behind the curtain. 

Don't get dizzy.  Don't get lost.

Blue Pill Blues (formerly known as "The Logical Song" by Supertramp)

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily
Oh joyfully, playfully watching me
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible
Logical, oh responsible, practical
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable
Oh clinical, oh intellectual, cynical
There are times when all the world's asleep
The questions run too deep
For such a simple man
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
Please tell me who I am
I said, watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical
Liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're acceptable
Respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable
Oh, take it take it yeah
But at night, when all the world's asleep
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man
Won't you please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
Please tell me who I am, who I am, who I am, who I am
'Cause I was feeling so logical
One, two, three, five
Oh, oh, oh, oh
It's getting unbelievable
