God said He made you in His image. Then, His Son says that THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS WITHIN.
so what do christians do? they deify "God" and place Him in the clouds and go "worship" Him on sundays at this building. they wait to die to go to
heaven. HUH? then they wonder why they feel so disconnected.
heaven is inside of you, not somewhere you go when you die. God made you in His image. when Christ was asked what was the most important of the
commandments, He said to love your brother and to love God. sounds like He's giving two answers, huh?
new years, valentines, thanksgiving, "christmas" and all the other holidays. ego appreciation days (birthdays). 40-60 hour work weeks. no wonder
EVERYONE feels so lost and disconnected.
we've been so disconnected, from about every angle from what we once were. DISTRACTIONS DISTRACTIONS DISTRACTIONS. the kingdom of heaven is within. i
want to be within. Not strung out on commercialized distractions and guilt.
we have been (and are continuing to be) pulled apart from our center. most of us have no clue WHY we are here and it's no one's fault. between dealing
with poverty or financial hardships, full time work, family time and the distractions of living in a commercialized world and everything it takes to
juggle all the balls, there's seldom any time to look inward. for now, at least.
i'm done with celebrating holidays. i'm done with the scatter shot spirituality and love. everyday is going to be christmas. everyday is going to be
thanksgiving. every day is church but church is inside of me.
reclaim your center.
stop going to church. become your own church daily.
stop celebrating christmas. give gifts and spread cheer every day.
stop celebrating your birthday. celebrate life every day.
pretty much everything i see going on in the world around me is just a distraction. the truth is inside of me. the truth is inside of you. anything
outside of yourself is a step in the wrong direction. everyone can call it thanksgiving and say that they're thankful for something but in all
honestly, if people stopped cooking all this food for thanksgiving, people would quickly stop celebrating it. this isn't thanksgiving day. this is
thankful to eat day. call it what you want but i don't see people talking about "happy thanksgiving" while exercising or working. nope, it's always
calls/texts from people who are stuffed full of food, half drunk and on their butts watching football or sleeping. what a pathetic holiday. gotta love
we are ONE. by loving my brother, I AM only loving myself. by hating my brother, I AM only hating myself. the only way to heal myself is to heal my
brother. when jesus said love you brother and love god, that's the SAME commandment. by separating the two in our language, it manifests through our
souls. there is power in your words but only power over yourself in most cases. how you speak is how you will believe.
speaking from a context of lack will manifest lack. using time, language and the right intentions, you can really shake some things up, hence all
Jesus's talk of love, the heart and intentions.
when you understand just how connected we really are, an idea TRULY can change the world.
don't try to understand it. just love it.
