I never tire of Christ..
How can you, when He is the source of all that is loved, in your life? My soul acknowledges His presence, in every breath I take, and with every thought I cherish. I see Him beyond the earths beauty, in the very Heart of Who He IS. I see Him most in those who honor His virtues. I see Him most, in the chastity of the feminine Soul. As she submits and accepts all that is His good. All that is sacred, all that His presence allows her to feel.
It doesn't interest me, what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for.If you dare to dream of what your heart longs for?
I dont care how old you are, or what you outer shell wishes to express. I want to know the light that turns your love on.
It doesnt interest me, what planets are squaring your moon, for the moon is a dead planet, and most of you, are reaching to become fully alive!
I want to know if you've touched the center of your deepest sorrow, or if you have been opened by life's betrayals, rather than remain shriveled and closed by fear, or further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, yours or mine, without being urged to run and hide, or fade, or fix it. But if you can just express it, without fear, or rejection but with complete acceptance of self.
I want to know if you can accept and dance with joy, without worry, or self restriction, because of what others might think, or say?
I want to know if you can disappoint others, to be true to yourself, and love others more than self at times..for the sake of your own humility.
I want to know , if you can bear accusations of betrayal, accept openly the hatred and misrepresentation of who you are, because of anothers lack of self understanding.
I want to know if you can be honest, and faithful, and therefore trustworthy enough, for me to open my mind and heart in your care.
I want to know if you can find beauty, when its not a perfect day. If you can accept anothers insensitivity, by being more aware of your own.
I'm not interested in where you live, in your neighbors life or that of people I dont know. Im interested in if you can get up after a night of grief, bruised to the bone, weary and sick of being sick and weary, to get up and do what needs to be done for the children of the future. Can you do it without excuse, or need for praise?
I want to know if you can stand in the center of the fire with me, and not leave me there to die alone?
It matters not , with whom you studied, what degree you have or sheepskins on your wall. For they they speak only of the world accepts as knowledge, and for me, knowledge without character, has no meaning at all.
I want to know what sustains you from the inside, when all else fails, or proves to be untrue.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly love the company you keep, in those empty moments where silence is your only reflection.
*Much of this is credited to what has been called The Statement of Non Interest, or more normally as The Invitation..Its write is said to be Oriah Mountain Dreamer. I have held this prayer in front of me for decades.. I have changed some of it, and some I have kept as is. I believe it is indeed an invitation to self awareness. To the expression of ones Soul, and to who it invites us to be. With Gods Blessing and Grace as our guide, to what is the greatest journey we can experience..that of knowing who we are!
On July 12, I wrote this in regards to the Myths of men, and the Truth of God. Men love to perpetuate their idea of good and evil. They seem to believe, in doing this, they are on the side of good. This is what I wrote regarding Batman and the Dark Knight.community.beliefnet.com/lulu2/blog/2012/...
What people need to understand is, that these types of myths, have NOTHING TO DO WITH GOD. GOD doesnt battle with evil, man does. So for anyone to believe these cartoon characters impress good in anyone, themselves are living in a myth.
These expressions are more the release of the underbelly horrors, that lives in man. They in no way Gods battle, but the battle of man, and not necessarily is he defending his God but his own survival nature. Its the consciousness of violence, the reason why man slows down to see if there is any signs of blood, at an accident..these are the attractions of man, his attraction that he sanctions to accept his darker side.
To say this or anything along these lines is mans expression of his own fight for good over evil..is more like the money making myth of mans own illusion.
Am I telling you not to like these forms of entertainment..I never would do that...however, what I would ask you to consider is, that they in no way subtlely or overtly have anything to do with GOD...
If you want a movie representative of God...try watching the LIFE OF CHRIST. Try watching movies that UPLIFT you to your Souls Joy, or something that feeds you heart with Sincerity, or Compassion... those feelings are the truths of God..
To perpetuate these myths of Gods good over evil, is THE REAL MYTH OF MAN. IT IS THE PERPETUATION OF THE MONEY MAKERS WHO MAKE THEIR FORTUNE ON THE HORROR OF MAN...
IF YOU WANT THE GOOD OF GOD...YOU CERTAINLY WONT FIND HIM IN THE DARK!
