Pride was one of the first things I had to let go of. I thought I knew...I was sure I knew...
but was shown something different and more humbling and more beautiful.
I never just decided anything...I was shown, slowly, through seeking in a personal relation. It is the ultimate love, without force or demands.
Love is not jealous..love is not prideful...love does not envy and love does not fail. God is love...and God does not change, Gods nature is steady
Please do not feel like I am arguing with you, I am only giving a counter voice to some of the things mentioned.
I know there are great souls ready for this growth...but my voice comes in fear that they are shackled with the rules givin to them enabling them to
seek without a biased thought. If one is comfortable with their faith...then my words should no waver them from their belief. But if ones inner nature
awakens at what I say...then it is up to them to seek a relation with God and find out for themselves...what it takes to make this relation and seek
for their maker. I can speak on how my relation to Thee came about but ultimately...no person should take any mans word for it just because.
What most dont realize is that I once walked the path others walked, I accepted everything the Bible said. I understood the Holy Holidays and
understood how the OT tied to the NT. I had accepted Jesus as my sacrifice as was thankful every day for this gift. When I felt a stirring in my soul
to seek deeper, to search other things....it was not easy...I felt I was doing wrong because the Bible said it was wrong. It was not easy! But so many
things began to make sense...ideas just fell into place, I can only describe it as an awakening. I was shown I was already worthy...I had the right to
seek Thee and I had the right to question things. And you know where the reasoning came from that I had to use to discern it all....from my mind, that
God made me with. Thee showed me, we have this reasoning for this very reason...to discern the divine nature from the primal nature. Which led me to
dare discern that all the stories of the Bible are not about our Divine maker. Some are...woven beautifully like a perfect stitch...but alot of the OT
nature is how the men of that time thought of God...which is understandable why they thought what they did.
If you are tired of me responding....just say the word...we can agree to disagree. But this is my will and I feel that I am actually defending a Holy
Nature that has been tarnished by our primal ways.
My best to you and yours
