Illusion and high places

02 June 2014, 07:54 Onyeji Dominic

Every soul in life has mountain to climb. That is true. We are naturally designed to excel in life but not everybody is climbing to the top. Nature expects everyone to go uphill. It is journey of life known to the wise as pilgrimage.

The uphill is mentally seen as one-way to the top but majority of Africans is not there due to mass ignorance and social negligence. They are rather wasting away in valley or downhill, not on the mountain. That is a big problem with the black in jungle.

One thing I know is that Africans do not seem to know good things in life. They are too religious, living in illusion and make believe. Majority of them read the Bible without understanding. If we check well, we will see that people like King Solomon and King David often visited high-places in the Bible. They went there most of the times to make sacrifices to gods (idols). The term "high-places" imply that shrines are situated on mental mountains which also stand for above, heaven or the top. People read it in Bible but they do not understand that shrines are oracles of divinity.

Things like religion and Bible do not give men to know that divinity is union of God and idols. They do not understand that the high-places are part of the things that made King Solomon a wise man. That is illusion, a big problem in Africa. Sorry to the black in valleys of shadow and mirage!

One bad thing is that God does not dwell in a valley, downhill or beneath. His throne is situated above. He only pays official visit to the valley long after the souls there had experienced disaster, fire or hell. That was what we saw in story of dried bones in Bible. God did not have time for the fools in that story until their carcass decayed and became skeletons in the jungle. One may not know why I have to say all these but let one bears it in mind that Nigeria is dead, and Biafrans are still part of the dead country.
