Only Through Christ Are We Fulfilled

    Sunday, September 23, 2012, 3:07 PM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    With Christ, there is never any confusion. For He is clarity of mind, and heart.
     He gives us answers , if we are looking in the right place, and for the right purpose.
     If we could remember, both fear, and lack, belong soley to the body...
    If we could remember that alone, it will help give us the clarity of thought we need, to end all confusion. 
     
    It is in those moments of emptiness, be it from a feeling that says we lack love, or a fear of not having enough. It is Christ alone , who hears those calls of emptiness.
    If we truly believe it is He, and He alone, who is our fulfillment. No matter how many others we have, who can give us love. For His purpose is the Love we seek.
     
    Our emptiness is our search for His Love. Only when we remember, we are alwasy looking for love, in all the wrong places. That those places are only temporary, They are  moments of satisfaction. And no matter how much love we crave from those around us. Or how much love we expect to receive from a spouses,a friends or even a child... They can never completely fill, what Christ fills, when that void we seek from our Soul , is filled with His Love.

    What of a Child of Rape?

    Tuesday, August 21, 2012, 5:14 PM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    Is a child less of a gift from God if its conception was one of rape?
    Could such  violence against a women, be consoled, or comforted, with any belief of a loving GOD, under those circumstances?
     
     Wouldnt this answer then belong to our Creator? 
     
     God creates only GOOD, for that's who He is, He can not create what He is not.
     
    Can the Creator of all that is good, grow in such horrible circumstances?
     If that were not possible, what purpose then, would the earth be?
     
     Some would view God as cruel, as if these horrible acts were part of His plan. His plan has nothing of harm or horror in it. Gods plan for us, is SOULY based on what lasts in forever.
     His good, is not in mans perspective of the moment, but in all that is Good and Eternal.
    His plan is all about how we CAN GROW IN HIS LOVE, and acceptance.. in every circumstance, that happens within ourselves, and with others.
     
    To the degree of violence that concieved this child of rape, so too was given it, in degree, and intensity, Christs' LOVE to Heal it.

    This Mornings Prayer

    Tuesday, August 14, 2012, 9:32 AM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    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.

    The "RIGHT" CHOICE

    Thursday, August 9, 2012, 8:05 AM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    How does your faith instruct you to be honest? Do you ever relate the "WORD OF GOD" as being honest with yourself?
     
    When we speak, do we ever connect to how honest we are being to ourselves and others? Do we ever connect that there are words that will express our personality, and then a smaller voice that would speak to us, the WORDS OF GOD. Do we know the difference? Can we hear it?
     
    Can we see when our words dont match our heart? The other day something funny happened with my husband. He ate something and said, "my nose, isnt eating whats in my mouth" TRANSLATION: What he smelled , smelled better than what he was tasting. It was to him, not a match. We do that same thing every day. When we make our personalities strong than the word of God.
     
    Do we ever hear, what we're saying as we are saying it? Telling us, thats not what Christ would do, or say? Do we recognize, what we say to about a husband, or a mother or a friend, may not have the forgiveness of the WORDS OF GOD? And if we hear that, are we strong enough to stop, and correct what we are saying? Or does our personalities ego, charge foward, in order for us to  prove ourselves, right!
     
    Being "right" with GOD is being right in our CONSCIENCE. We never really need proof of that. What we need , is to stop and take a moment, so that we can make the "right" choice that reflect GODS WORD. Then, we'll  be right with HIM, and thats all that matters. 
     
    Have you ever told a lie, so that you'd be be seen as right? Was that desire your egos need. Was it because in that moment you felt less loved, less understood, less visible? Can any lie, ever be the WORD of God? 
     
    Being "right", is our need to be loved. It's mans way of being seen! Its our way of saying "here we are" and I need to be recognized. Its our personalities need to prove we are smart or acceptable, or right! In reality, only Gods truth is right..all else is our personalities need to be loved.
     
    Of course we all need to be loved. But our being right, has nothing to do with Gods love for us. One is our seeking love from outside ourselves, the other it calling upon Him to love us more.
     
     Maybe if we could listen more within, and think less of  maintain the position of "I'm right", without!
     
    Maybe if we knew, that when we feel that lack of self..we should go within and ask God to fill that gap! If we did that, He would immediately give us an answer that would fill our lack! We might even in that moment, drop our egos need, and instead choose to listen more, to the WORD OF GOD.

    The Invitation

    Saturday, July 28, 2012, 11:10 AM [My Heart My Soul My God]

    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!
