Redefining everything, and everything is an empty show

If you’re going to sell a sensory experience as being delivered “by candlelight” please don’t use hundreds of lifeless LEDs. The inevitable (but very few) fires throughout the colder seasons by people unprepared, with zero maintenance, and lacking any understanding have fueled this LED candle phenom. They even turn off on timers. We can no longer be trusted to put ourselves to bed. 

OPINION: LED candles are soul-less. When you stare into a real flame candle, you see movement, feel heat, witness various reactions, all which may be learned from. This watching can be inspiring of thoughts perhaps not otherwise considered (how much was sparked when man stared into a fire?) 

LED candles are lifeless mimickry. Complete disclosure: I despise them. Just make another soulless bulb and stop trying to tie it to our rich heritage. Don’t try to make something naturally warm “warm” by just appearing to be.

That said, can an LED candle warm a few stacked clay pots well enough to radiate warmth to you in an emergency? Didn’t think so. It is a one stop static ornament devoid of any further value. 

Caterers use very small oil lamps to keep food warm. Given enough time, you could heat or cook food on just a single flame. Necessary? No, I’ve eaten straight from a can at times, but welcome…? Can you expect any of this additional value from LED? 

We lessen our everyday lives and experiences for stupid fears. We strip ourselves of resources for stupid fears. I could go into SO many everyday things we are now being restricted from, by the most idiotic means. These things are being removed from shelves for us to purchase and many applaud this. 

What do you think?

Hi lgageharleya,
Think of it from a safety perspective: With real candles, real fire, how would you manage this display? One false move and you turn the whole thing into a a Beltane!
What connections do you see between a candle fire and soul?
Do you believe fire is a soul?

As far as i can see fire is available everywhere.
I see fire more linked to Satan and that to YHWH. I don’t know if you tried this before, but i used to sit and stare on fire for a long time, sometimes i start seeing demonic shapes, it’s a dangerous energy, and fire is often involved in witchcraft, evil rituals.
You mentioned arsonist, most of them get pleasure from the destructive process of seeing things burn, die and turn to ashes. This feeling can be addictive.

We still can get fire from friction, or a piece of glass and some sun.
I hope blocking the sun will be impossible to achieve.
They are going for everything, natural, and artificial.
If you are not happy with LED and all artificial light, it’s will soon end, with this NET ZERO world green transition we are going through, it has already started with cities lights will be turned off, energy prices soaring …

Why are you aggressive with me? If you see something wrong in my comments please show it to me.
We can go further, live only on daylight, no need for any candles or fire, pure alignment to nature laws. Why not?

Honey, you just have been caught by 666germ’s very own flying monkeys, like lgageharleya, A E and others.

They possess thee undisputsble capital-T Truth and either you bow down and submit to the light they bring or prepare to be attacked and discouraged from this placer ’cause they just WON’T take a NO for an answer. EVER.

They are either totally crazy or trolls (or both…) but Will charge against just about anyone that espouses a difering opinion or belief or religion.

They believe themselves to both be good and possess the capital-T Truth… which apparently enables them to curse, ve bad and hostile to others like you (ironic and dissonant, isn’t it?).

Please show us where Gem or I have ever cursed anyone. Or been “bad” or hostile. If I have ever behaved so, I wish to correct myself asap. Be kind and show me my wrongs so I may fix them.

Fire is simply the first engine harnessed by man. It produces light, heat, consumes fuel and air. I use it to clear irrigation ditches and canals all the time. Fire does most of the work for me.
I also use it for processing orchard trimmings which would otherwise require extremely expensive machinery.
The firemarshal and me are bitter enemies because he’s a pawn for the elite who want to regulate fire out of the hands of the common man.

No I’m just meerly pointing out my opinion that fire is the primordial engine. It is the component that does the work in modern engines. Hence the elites war on fire, internal combustion engines in cars, candles etc etc.

You know… I am against led lighting. I used to have white flashers in my eyes all the time because I was working under led lamps 16 hours a day. I switched to natural bulbs and the flashers went away. Also there is an increase in retinal detachment (I personally know 4 people that it’s happened to, all in the last 5 years). There are studies that show a link between led lighting and the detachment. It isn’t natural God-given full spectrum light. Seems like the majority of our problems are stemming from man trying to improve or pervert Gods natural creation and laws.

The article is against led candles from a religious, spiritual perspective, not medical.
Do you work at night? because Led lighting + Daylight is quite a lot for an eye to handle.
The problem i see with LED lamps is that most people tend to buy, use the most powerful ones.
Humans did pervert Gods natural creation and laws, and it’s a bad thing, but do not confuse perversion, and invention. LED technology is an invention that has many advantages.

I am not scolding anybody, i respect every opinion, comment, and i see a friendly discussion here.
Jerry is linking eye problems with LED light exposure and I’m not sure of that.
I would like to have an answer from @Jerry about the age of these 4 people that had retinal detachment.
The whole world spends endless hours focusing on all kind of screens, yet i don’t see an epidemic of retinal detachment.

I started using them because real candles aggravate my allergies and asthma. My mom and daughter have it worse than I do. I can have candles all over the living room in winter and make it a bit cheerier without feeling like an elephant is on my chest.

However, I completely agree with you here! If they are going to have a concert by candlelight, the candles should be real. Truth in advertising and all that jazz.

100% pure beeswax – from hives NOT treated with petrochemical or antibiotic
amendments – is beneficial to Human health. Obtain by the pound (along with untreated honey) from treatment-free beekeepers – they need all the support they can get – pour your own into up cycled jars… and everybody wins.

If you want to do your own research about why treatment-free… bring up any beekeepers’ supply catalogue on the net, and read about the ‘treatments’ they offer for “controlling” all manner of problems that befall hives & apiaries that are imposed by standardized/ unnatural/commercial/”modernized”/20th century beekeeping methods; all highly toxic.. and the wax in a hive absorbs toxins to it’s capacity to keep it away from the bees & the honey. The beehive is an intelligent ecosystem, and all 8 products are highly beneficial to Humans – most profoundly, the bees destroy nothing in their lifecycle of productivity. Rudolph Steiner called them “Love incarnate”.

OK… *Permission Granted*…
Here is some info for you to integrate, and maybe a valid reference among them for your hands-on direction. I learned so much from these excellent people of what bees DO and how to facilitate that deliberately
https://bushfarms.com/bees.htm
AND
https://bushfarms.com/organic_beekeeping_meeting.htm
I used to go to the ones in Oracle, AZ – now defunct – speakers’ rosters for references; but I know, on the first roster there, Sam Comfort of Anarchy Apiaries is a very roundly experienced individual to learn from. Some of these people… IDK, university affiliations don’t sit well, imo. (trojan-horse people? Treatment-free is a far superior & stronger competition for the mainstream large-cell/toxic additives/commercially-contrived methods); extensive info is linked in his left-margin list… all relevant to choosing how/where to begin; a sample of important points listed way,way down the list: https://bushfarms.com/beesfoursimplesteps.htm AND Dee Lusby on Small Cell Beekeeping … “File-cabinate-style’ hives, is what he teaches & what many treatment-free people use successfully without foundation (I do love how he dips them). Other hive styles: Hangerkorb (1st photo https://pacifichorticulture.org/articles/the-melissa-garden-a-sanctuary-and-season-of-honeybees/ ; their website link has been usurped, IDK today where to find their previously available instructions to build these; I’ll go fish), they are mostly suited to a bee sanctuary rather than being worked for production, even though accessible; Cathedral &/or Golden Ratio hives for production, linked below . I suppose a variety of hive styles on one’s property is ideal as in the Melissa Garden… and the most appropriate will become clear; to each his/her own, as it were. Same with instructors, harmonious personality with yours is a big plus, so shop around; but everyone has something valuable.
ALSO
Bell’s Bee Guardianship courses & Cathedral hives are exceptional: https://backyardhive.com/products/beekeeping-intensives-w-corwin-bell
They sell both ready mades & plans for DIY

LEDs are part of the false-white-light anti-Life matrix. I was SO SAD when Commiefornia (the formerly fabulous state I reside in) regulated all industries to no longer be able to sell or use here, and I can’t even have them shipped to my home from another state, argh! I have halogen bulbs in several areas of my home, and they’re far better than LED (which I also hate). Next time I travel outside of Cali, I’m stocking up on incandescents!

Instead of investigating and posting about trafficking rings, medical maffia ir corrupt goverments they instead focus squarely on the magical Disney woo woo of the esoteric. So brave of them! They gonna save the world! LOL

By the way, they certainly have a strange fascination/attraction with the very thing they claim to despise so much…

Every “smallish” issue you casually dismiss is one more step forward and another notch on the belts of the ones who lord it over you. Exercise more concern, because we grow very close.

They are delirious and can’t even see it. Won’t ever pay attention to nothing else but the voices in their head, which they even think is god himself talking to them.

Not many are actually prepared to handle these hard, ugly truths/topics and they go literally insane with repeated exposure.
Sometimes I wonder if the reveal of these dark truths is maybe the most powerful way the elite has to curse and destroy people’s souls.

I would pity them if it wasn’t for the fact that they’re annoying and get in the way of other truth seekers.

I don’t magnify anything ’cause it’s very obvious it’s always ME, I create random handles ’cause I don’t care.
But I’m obviously NO random troll, I bring up legit questions no one ever answers (but would still go on and replay to me claiming I’m attacking or insulting or whatever – which I’m not -) y’all just don’t like being challanged.
Just look how you completely glanced over the serious content of my post: a REALITY you don’t want to see or admit.

And the reason I do all of this is because tomfoolery has taken over this place with ridiculous posts by people who are obviously not doing well (or have very little grey matter left).

As others pointed out, this place Is NOT a personal blog NOR a “Christian” site (or whatever y’all understand for christianity, certainly NOT the concept that I have).

And by the way… addressing the question from several posts above, yes, y’all tend to disrespect other’s beliefs, laugh at them and literally tell them they’re going to hell for it. If that isn’t literal cursing then I don’t know what it is then…

At least I DO answer y’all’s inquires instead of playing fool like y’all do and ignore them…
