Synergy/Xlibris Press presents "WE'RE WATCHINGHER SHOW:The Ethos of John Patrick Acevedo"(Appearing Christmas,The New York Times, 2018)

An ascetic romantic, John Patrick Acevedo began his quest for God and love while he was a freshman at Clemson University. As he showed up rather nervously to his very first college course, he was quite stunned to see a beautiful professor, Amanda Dyer, who would prove to be instrumental to his writing. During his sophomore year at Boston University, he started to “write poetry that was exactly the same as the Holy Bible.” It was only after graduating after Boston, however, that he committed to writing poetry. 

In his latest installment of poetry in “Healing w/o Patient Suffering (for Virginal Sole Distinction): More Ethos by John Patrick” (published by Xlibris), Acevedo discusses the spirit or karma from an animal magnetic dimension of human nature and how it is actually the passion of the sociological aspects of autonomy and choice.
“These are original poetry with innovative ideas that have a lyrical style of my own. My poetry book is romantic, aesthetically spiritual and quite emotionally moving. Its overall theme is that weakness is fundamentally seen as pathos or logos when in actuality, it is an ethos,” Acevedo says. 
When asked what he wants readers to take away from his writing of the book, Acevedo says, “that life is brief and that it is all about what you put into it.” Of the 86 poems in the book, most have appeared in the previous Synergy Press ( books he published between 2012 and 2018.

The diagram below demonstrates how the active/passive "give and take" Holy Bible Sociology works as Evil when applied to the Tree of Knowledge and the Tree of Life as human weakness and strength.

COMPROMISE AS SOCIOLOGICAL GOSPEL:   “I am most fulfilled by sociological matters when I am reminded of the Gospel of Give and Take which I founded in January of 1991 while living alone in Forest Glen, MD.  It is based upon the two causes of human nature; namely the active and the passive sides of give and take and their respective effects upon morality.  We can appreciate how this gospel works when one actively gives and another passively takes and a spiritual or a passive giving results.  Similarly, we can observe how an emotional or a passive taking results when one actively takes while others passively give.  When give and take are both passive, give and take actively compete against each other.  And when one actively gives without another actively taking, he catalyzes an emotional or a passive taking.  Likewise, when one takes without another actively giving, his actions are usually met with the human resistance of a spiritual or a passive giving.”   -John Patrick Acevedo, July 16, 2017, Synergy Press.                                                                                                                           The next two diagrams below illustrate how New and Old Testament applications effect active/passive "give and take" Holy Bible Sociology in human nature by causing Good through the soul and the body (gnosis) as well as through the mind and the body (longing).
