lulu2's blog listings. Christ,truth,pro-life,science,religion,political,opinion Zend_Feed_Writer 1.10.8 (http://framework.zend.com) http://community.beliefnet.com/lulu2 My Journey from the Stars.. to the God of Love Astrology relies on the belief in a Universe whose planetary alignments effect our lives. In a way, the belief itself makes us see ourselves as the stars. 
This belief will of course be a reality, because as we know, our beliefs form our perception, and hence our reality.
The belief of God as the controller of the Universe has merit, but it leaves one with a God outside self. It calls upon ones wants, to be given to the Universal law of attraction suggestion box. And when our desires are met we attest to the Universe answering our positive ...attraction.
I once believed in this understanding, and like many other understandings, we may grow beyond it, because our life proves it wrong.
Of course there are laws of attraction, but how many use this law , as the reason for someone really hurtful entering their life?
My use of Astrology was to learn more about who I was. And it's purpose for the most part is to tell us how great we are, which includes all the signs and planets that were aligned so we could become who we were meant to be.
I now relegate Astrology to that of the flowers of the earth. Each flower having its birth at a certain time. Each flower having its colorful hues, and form. But these flowers have no chance at eternity. They live on the earth only for a time. It was then, that my need for a God more like the one who I loved all my life, took a stronger hold. It was this understanding that made me seek , not a cold lifeless Universe as the model of my life. But someone who knew how much all humanity needed LOVE. It was then, that my outer god, proved less than what I needed...and my Love turned inward, to where the true Kingdom of God resides.

How do you see Christ ? How do you picture Christ?
As a God somewhere over a rainbow, like a child when considering Oz?
Do you see Him as leading you to the stars in a Universe you have little in common with, other then it being part of a philosophy of old?
Is He only a thought , you hold, so that your lips can mutter a name that binds you with others?
Or have you seen Him as your mate? Someone real enough to share your feelings with? Someone when you feel a lack of being loved, you call upon first ..., before all others? Do you see Him as a living entity who, knows you better then you know yourself?
It's how you view Christ, that will either make Him the mate of your whole being, or a distant god, whose life has little to do with who you are.

When We Take Following Christ, Seriously The problem with many Christians is , they fear following Christ will change them too much. That they no longer will have their same personality. And even worse that they will become so holy, they no longer will be able to have fun.
After all, we all have seen pictures of the ancient Saints, and hardly a smile on any of them.
Well that's because being too serious about anything, in todays world is a threat. We already believe, we are over worked, and over burdened.
But how mo...re joyful would we be, if our burdens were lifted, and our work became a joy? How free would we be, if we no longer cared about what others thought of us, and only had to answer to He who gives us our strength?
Could we give up our cursing, for feeling more loved?
Could we give up our pretenses to become more of who we are?
How wonderful would it be not to have to hold on to the protective shield of being exposed?
And lastly how free could you be, if you never ever have to cover your shame, by telling a lie?
If that is asking too much of you, then following Christ is indeed to serious a journey for you to take. If what He offers sounds like a path you would love to take...than He will SERIOUSLY help you walk it.

Happy Mothers Day Motherhood is mystical.
It transforms a single cell impregnated with the spark of life, that holds within it, all the possibilities available to that life.
She helps nurture this life, until it chooses to be born into the world.
Motherhood shares her own life force, her heart, and a piece of her Soul.  She asks nothing, for all she gives to this unborn babe. All she wants is its life to be filled with all that is good. All that brings it joy, and hopes it will find a love of its own.                    She seeks nothing for herself, yet hopes for everything to be given to her child. She prays its life will be fulfilled. That it will find its purpose in the world. She asks for nothing, other than her child find happiness in its Soul.
Happy Mothers Day to all, who feel children are our greatest gift!

The Difference Between Self Awareness and Divine Vigilance Growing in Christ/God begins with a choice.

As long as we are still blaming others for your hurts, and life's injustices, we have yet to become self aware.
As long as we believe self awareness makes us enlighted, and therefore its our duty to enlighten others, we have yet to learn Divine Vigilance.
The difference between Divine Vigilance, and Self Awareness is; with Divine Vigilance we allow God to reveal our faults, as He gently suggests their correction.

With Self Awareness, our love of self, denies we have any faults, therefore leaving us no need for correction. No need for Christ to make us in His image.
