Light of Life

Light of Life

When does a person see the light?  No, not the light of day, but instead, the Light of Life!

The Light of Eternal Life to come and not the light of the new tomorrow.

To have life through Him will give this eternal life and is a life He brought from God and a dying world.

A chance to climb out of the black pit of darkness and to see The Light and walk in this brightness is to live in a lifestyle or way of Life’s walk.

As He was the Light, is the Light and will be the Light, He did and will influence people for good and prepare us to receive the Holy Spirit into our lives; IF we allow Him to do so.

The Spiritual Disciplines are a step in a way to hear God’s word and to ascertain what plans He has for us.

It is our choice to do nothing or something in life and either walk in the darkness or be a Light of Life, which can mean happiness, prosperity or a perfect being of self.

Our decision, our outcome and our mortal and immortal existence is and will be decided by self.

The light is there!!!! We have to look for Him, acknowledge Him, accept Him!!!!!!!

John 8:12             “I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,

but have the Light of Life.”

So Be It

Rigid Thinking

Rigid Thinking

I wonder if I am too rigid, at times, in my thinking?

I don’t think so, but perhaps this is so to some people that know me.

Going outside the box, doing something unexpected,

going to a place not seen before, may be examples but not great ones.

I realize I look at some people as being ridged in their thinking also,

 but they may NOT think as such, of themselves.

Regardless, both parties are being judgmental of each other.

Just a thought…………………………………..

Positive Ways

                                Positive ways

Expose the peace you have within you

and do NOT allow your mind

to be cluttered with noise of unwanted thoughts

Drive out evil thoughts of hatred and

Banish them to the refuse where they belong.

Positive vibes create positive actions,

so be a positive thinker in a positive way,

Again, THINK POSITIVE!!!!!!!!!

Peace

Peace is a goal that sometimes is NOT met! A quest by some individuals and even mighty nations for a betterment of life.  But, at times, power and might, control, wealth are some of the hinderances to the reality of having Peace.

Where is the compassion, the common sense, the decency, and even love for others? Or does something or someone evil, make the goal unable to be accomplished?

Pawns come into play becoming victims in life.

The “Self” becomes “The other” and is vanquished by the dominant. A sadness in life for all or any of those affected.

Peace is still a goal with love thrown in, to be part of the equation.

I quote:  “In God’s will is our peace”  T. Merton

“Give Peace a chance” J. Lennon

Evil

Evil

Evil is Evil is Evil !!!!  Simple as that!!!!

Does NOT matter what your name is, your position in life,

your riches, your standing, your title, etc….

If Evil, the word evil stays with you and you are then evil to others.

NO excuses, no lies otherwise, you cannot hide your title from others

because the moniker of Evil applies to you and will remain.

Your actions will tell, will show how and what you are in life,

and you will be known for what and how you are also.

So, if you are someone like Putin the Russian President, your minions who follow you

then, you again are known for what you are

An EVIL despicable person!!      You are not liked and only loved

by your minions who support, praise and owe you in life…….

Peace to the world

Life Experiences

We experience life as we experience living itself……

Each of us has reality as it is, versus made up

Figments of our imagination.

What is real is exactly rhat

REAL, and not something else.

We might want something that is conjured in our mind,

But again, that is not reality.

I can wish for something to be different, but

that wishing will not make it so.

Change is the way of life and is also the constant in life.

Getting used to the changes is a slow mindset process

and THAT TAKES RTIME!!!!!!

So be it…………………………………………….

Heavenly Thoughts

                                                                       Heavenly Thoughts                                                        

For this discourse, let us agree/submit that there IS a life in the hereafter and let us call it Heaven (H).

When souls arrive in (H) do they leave the Earthly beliefs and their bad actions behind?

All the politics, hatreds, prejudices, thievery, abuses, religious differences, and all so many more,  Earthly human tendencies and other things that prey on our dispositions.

If so, how can this be so?

Will the Earthly person, all of a sudden, have a (H) soul that sees the light of all understanding? Or, does the final trip just erase those Earthly and human traits in the process of acceptance in (H)?

But, or, so again, how can a racist person full of prejudice, an abuser of any sorts, a thief of renown, or any person full of hatred of their fellow man, become, all of a sudden, a righteous person in (H)? How can this person mingle with those they hate in an environment of love, knowing that those around them are the people they despised and acted against on Earth?

I don’t know how this could be so, but still wonder what the ground rules are in (H) for existing there. I know someone who thinks everyone goes to (H), but I doubt if they know the rules either and how it works there.

The great mysteries of life are still there to be found eventually and it will be exciting to find out someday, but I am not in a hurry to learn them right now.

Windows of the Mind

                                                               

When we see a window that opens up in our minds, is it real or imaginary?

                Could we, should we, doubt its existence, or instead, accept it for what it is?

 Does the window show us reality or just a figment of a restless mind?

                How do the mysteries of life become exposed to us, other than through

                                opportunities of exposure to our thoughts?

I have seen, I have felt, I have heard, I have been entranced by the existence

                of reality of extreme mysteries that some of us desire.

An open mind allows us to experience the realities we deny ourselves

                by bondage to self-imposed restraints.

I can only state that I accept the opportunity to explore the

                looking through the window in my mind.

                                To do anything else, is to deny my very existence.

I am blessed to have some, not many, mysteries shown to me

                and for that I do appreciate the moments

                                the window lights up and is seen.

So be it!               

A mystery does not mean it cannot be known, but many parts will always be beyond understanding

Perception

How do others see us?   Not as we see ourselves, but more differently!!!

We can wish they were more attuned to our thinking, but that is not the case. Like looking in a mirror, but sometimes the mirror lies to us.

Could we change, should we change, or are we satisfied with our self-deluded thoughts and delusions about ourselves?

An honest dialogue with others would help, but we would have to be honest, which is hard to do sometimes.

Therefore, we will continue to do as we do and say things, we think are right, but we will be wrong about our image with others.

So be it!!!!

Isolation of Life

Isolation of Life

Isolation – the state of being separated, alone, or apart

The 2020 Pandemic Isolation is the requiring of distance from the other, no touching, and having a manufactured barrier to prevent breathing on any other.  Also, restricting numbers of people in groups of many types of affairs normally attended by the countless of beings.

All contrary to the norm, making all, not just feeling isolated but divorced from each other in so many ways.

Complaints by many of rights being infringed upon and an injustice but done so to protect the many from the few.

Some, old and young to have the final isolation by being totally alone, gasping for breath on an insensitive machine supplying oxygen till another monitor finally flat lines, signaling the end of life.

Choices to be made by the many, while the numbers keep going up and up and up.

It will take time, but that is what we have for those in the isolation of life.
