Did you just say something or did you whistle?

Couldn't distinguish it among that WALL OF TEXT with no clear message whatsoever.

When Joshua died he was just 15. He didn't get to drive, although I did let him on the back roads and we had a lot fun! He did not have a sexual experience, nor did he go on a date. He wanted to use his brother as a babe magnet (not that he needed it). He was very good looking, awesome personality and I can't believe I am still alive to tell the painful story. It was horrific! :-(

I am telling you this only to share a glimpse of pain. The pain and sorrows of lifes lessons are so hard!

When I saw the "bigger picture" I had began dating a cage fighter who was not only fine as wine but wow....he was all that and then some. He was even a Jesus freak" Had a tat of Jesus on the cross all down his back and would tell people, "Jesus has my back". There is actually a lot more to this story....but long story short..
He was taken from us by the flood last year that only happens every 1000 yrs they say (Tennessee). I started going to a church of all places to see Danny (God forgive me) more. I met his mom and everything was peachy. My first day attending church the Pastor talks about the "Big Picture". Tells a story of a man who works with a bridge lift. Every time a train goes by he lowers the lift and so on. One day he brings his son, and while his son is playing the father is doing his job. Train comes and he lowers the bridge...but his son is below and when he lowers the bridge down he sees his son yelling please help! What are you doing daddy? He thinks quickly about saving his son or the hundreds on the train. He saves the hundreds. Do you think his son saw the bigger picture at the time? No....he only saw his dad was killing him. His perception did not have the "bigger picture".

Now I tell you this because I sought him my own way after Josh died. I went to the library and read for years. It is what I needed. Being with Danny that day is what I needed to. The why was answered that day in church. There is a bigger picture that we do not see nor can we fathom. Trust there is a plan and the plan is a good plan that is indeed a win win.

Seek ....and you will find more than you expected. I guarantee it! This Universe is nothing but magical and in perfect harmony with everything in it. If more positivity and or love was put into the Universe, more would come back to us. The evil doers (negative by nature and not willing to change) will have no place here once the law of cause and effect is placed into full effect. We have only been promised by the words that were put forth in the Bible. Jesus Christ is who I place my bet on and who I follow because through out History I think he is the coolest man of all time! ;-) His words are music to my ears!!!

My intention was to not bore you and so sorry If i did. ;-)

Peace!

This is the first good point brought up.....Thank you....

Please ask yourself this if you dont mind:

In a world where it is easy to see that there are those that try to use fear to control the masses on a daily basis would it be possible that thinking just maybe

"the world wouldnt be forclosed and just maybe there are those that we fear trying to keep you under control."

lsiten please.....I have lived a life subjected to every one of those things that you just mentioned but i did go into detail about it in other threads which there are many to sift through. The thing is this: If the one thing that could set you free was giving up your free will and returning it back to it's rightful owner, wouldnt that be the one thing that you were to be kept far away from if there were eople using that fear aginst you?

Give it back or not.........Your choice........youll make it through your actions not your mind........

Perhaps there is a reason for everything, even our discourse? Sometime, I sense a "polarity" in Brian's replies, but maybe he's playing the devil's advocate role? But still, in the end, neither one reply matters in comparison with Truth. Any objection towards that end should be subjective to that respect.

With this said, it is moot really. And rhetorical. Don't allow another person's ego or expression of belief to sway you when you know you KNOW the truth. So there is a reason why and it's not important that you realize God knows the intent of your heart, it's important that YOU KNOW it.

Much Love, as always!

Sir... my loved friend, this was brilliant.
Touched my heart deeper than deep.
My choice is clear, I bow for God anytime, want everyone to know that.
Have trust that God knows my heart and want what is best for me, for all
on the deepest levels.
Hope all of us will see and take the reaching hand.
Pray that we will recognize God, when he stands before us.

My heart are ready
Love and light

The points you bring up are discussed in other threads of mine and i will not allow you to take me off my focus....I have important work to do and important decisions to face people with so stop wasting my time and go waste your own.

How can you contend that my posts have been at all "off-topic?" I clearly understood your OP, and responded that, if indeed, willingness to give up one's free will leads to God, that in my own experience it hasn't. I abhor my freewill. I deny that my happiness can be found through it. I am not young, and have been calling to God for many years, through many different philosophies and techniques...He remains silent.

How is patting people on the back who have "found" what you have, and dismissing those who have dismissed your message, "important work?" If you really have something to offer, which I seriously doubt at this point, you would be offering it to someone who is seeking it.

And perhaps you would take the time to frame your responses in a less dismissive way.




To deny the existance of ones free will isnt any where near the same thing as giving back what you know to be real and doing it on purpose...........


You have been off topic even if it was only for the reason that what i asked for was what your choice would be if it was an option.....I didnt ask for your beliefs or quarrals with mine did I?

I didnt ask for a debate. I asked for honestly a hypotheticall answer to a hypotheticall question.

(I suck at spelling i know but what ever)

It was only after attacked was i forced to defend what i know to be the truth......I didnt conflict with any beliefs bc i never admitted to any of mine......I presented a case of why and ask what you would do in that scenario.....

You dont wish to play along than you arent playing fairly so I can play on that level two...

Whats up?

This a great story, even sad as it is, what MamaJ is sharing is a piece of the heart. It takes courage to share things as this, but to share that which is painful to help others is very noble. Out of the blue, and totally unconditional sharing of feeling. How can one not feel anything while reading?

reply to post by Brianegan
 


Agnosticism is not a "belief on God". It is an honest expression of "not knowing" or claiming to know. I believe it is the only true state of one who has not found God. Otherwise you are a pretender, or worse, a false teacher. One can certainly be both agnostic and a seeker without contradiction.



In that case then you have my apology......In my defence there are a lot of people who thought being agnostic meant the alternative....

If that is the case than every single response i made to you is now void......

I bow my head and wait for forgivness

OFF-TOPIC Post - Some Relevance To Current Topic:

I just saw "Tornado in Springfield, Massachusetts," in the city. That's 3 major cities hit so far.

If there is a 4 or 5, we'd be well-advised to re-evaluate current intelligence and theories of "everything."

This was the "surge" in the "Force," I felt about an hour ago.

Something "snapped-up" or "increased" in intensity and was "felt," I'll let you know more as soon as things figure-out.

Seek ....and you will find more than you expected. I guarantee it!


You seem like a very nice person, and I don't at all mean to offend you,
BUT
You cannot guarantee it. I am not young, and I have spent quite a lot of my life seeking. I often feel as though I should have focused more on material success or romantic love, or some of the many others things life has to offer.

I hope you're right, but don't you think it's a bit presumptuous to guarantee that if I seek, I will find...I know, Jesus said it too, but...that has not been my experience...perhaps today's the day, right?

In all honesty, I'm messed up pretty badly from early childhood. I think that was the message of my "spiritual experience" (which occured over twenty years ago) The feeling I got from ":God" was one of pity. Like it was too bad I didn't have the capacity, and he didn't blame me...was sad for me.

It was the most terrible thing I've ever experienced, and it was powerful, and it seemed very real at the time.

As the OP has implied, I am a spiritual "child" --maybe it is the time for meat, instead of milk, but I apparently can't digest it.

A Jehovah's witness once came into my house...(I have been very, very open to everything, being lost) He claimed to "spiritually see" that I was broken...and not fit for the Kingdom of God....I mean, really, who has that experience...I feel that that's the OP's take on me as well...

a wasted cause.

That's fine, I can't really argue with him.

Thank you WW. You're an old soul aren't you? Of all things green and alive there isn't a harmful thought around you. Please do a favor, if it is possible. I realize you don't accept favors as this, but your calming energy is necessary to keep the balance.

I ask you once again, even though I said I would never ask again, but please dwell here for a time; please?

Your message and light should be present in the thread; and will be sorely missed. Please re-energize the protection field, reconcile the energies to balance-state by your wise words.

That's all that is asked...for a time, times, and half a time.

Much Love,



Conspiring together now i see........I accept the challenge......At no consequence to you........What say you all.....I fail I stop.....you fail you can try again until you see the circle.......I don't fail my love.....Try all you wish.....


Alternate meaning:

Yes I am

Stay here and help and find your answer to said question to be correctly found in suspicion the truth. So again I say bring it on.

This thread is not the truth, it is just what you belive to be true.
There is no backing to anything you say.
The question is really: "do you believe in god".
If a person believes in god your thread makes sense, if he/she doesn't then it is just much ado about nothing.
And I doubt that your long post will make a believer out of a non-believer.

edit on 1-6-2011 by Sailor Sam because: spelling



It will wake enough of those who care to hear it..............So yes it will matter if one believes in god but the one who doesnt believe in god is just that much more lost and honestly my prime targets here......

Nice to meet you.....You are wrong and I will not prove it........prove yourself to me. How about that? or how about we stop needing proof and just stop asking for all the crap everyone asks for.........You and I both know that you dont believe for a reason and even if you deny that it was fear based to fall back on the excuse doesnt make you right and you know it.....

All it makes you is affraid and thus wrong. Someone mentioned the things even you believe in that can only be felt......If one explains those away to fit their new found belief they are convincing themselves. You only fool yourself.

Brian standing up for what you believe is awesome. You having found your way to the light is a miracle in itself. Please do not be offended by what I am about to say. Hear me, think, and then sit back for a moment. When you offer love to someone do not expect anything at all in return. When we expect someone to say or do what we want and it doesn't happen we are let down by our own expectations.

Be careful with your words so your message is not lost. The message you are conveying should not be with any attitude...only Love because that is what you are offering people. The chance to not only find love but to experience it as you have.

Peace!



Speak for yourself.....Im not going to take it anymore........My message is clear and i dont loose focus.......You can have faith that i will not fall.......I hear you loud and clear but as i agree i also know that by my sacrifice of my own heart i will in turn save many hearts from deletion...

I wear my uniform proudly.

If this is the case I would have had aggression confused with curiosity

They are close cousins and a risky game to play but I can play along safely so please continue your evaluation and let me knowe if i can help or none of my threads answer a question you may wish to ask......

I am worthy of your questions but are you worthy of the answers......because i know you are worthy for the questions as well......Even if it is for different reasons at the moment.

Please slow down, literally take 10 deep breaths inhaling and exhaling only through your nose. The inhale is equal to the exhale.....BALANCE.

Dude, there is HUGE energy coming in today, please do not misread what it is.
