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 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.

Not All Love is the Same How is it we are all so very impressed with how animals love?
Animals respond to their survival instincts, not much different from man.
Haven't you known a person who stays in a situation out of fear, based upon their inability to survive alone? That is more animal instinct, than love.
 Love from outside of self, is very hard to define. Especially when we are looking at it more from our animal nature. Not all things we observe are what they seem. Not all love is the same. Love can be in the form of a friendship, as well as ones need to survive. And at times these loves can overlap.

  And as with all things in life, not everyone has the same capacity for love. Some animals will seem as if they truly understand the love between pet and master. Some just are content with a warm home, and food at the ready. So animals can express what we say is love differently, so too, can human nature love in greater and lesser degrees.

When it comes to mans ability to love greately , Christ was given to us, as the example of Love Divine. I would not even mention Divine Love, had He not told us it was possible. What would be the purpose of His coming, if not to show us that we can reach that eternal Love? A love that has nothing to do with survival. Nor even the kind of love that only would satisfy our egos need.

He showed us a selfless love, whose purpose was to make us want to learn more, how we could love. A love that could elevate with His Christ-like spirit.

Few I believe, will seek that purpose. For just like the animals in nature, some hearts are not equipped to fill that need. And even some who can, will reject it, for the safety of earth bound love. But for those who know what it means to follow Christ; for those who know that mans purpose is not His animal nature, but that of His God. It's important that our time on earth is used for this purpose,and not wasted.
What good is wanting to follow Christ? Wanting Him to return to earth, if we haven't the time, the inclination or the awareness of what it takes for us to make Way for His return? What would be the point of saying we are Christians, follower of Christ, if we havent a clue as to what will take to reach love that is Divine?
