Every day, I write stories. Most of these stories are factual… others are hypothetical. But both types of stories are written with the same hope in mind: to spread the Truth… & to do so in the simplest possible way. I believe that the best way to transmit the Truth is for me to learn how to speak your language & to reach you at your level. A great man once said “I shall make you fishers of men”… & he said that because he was talking to fishermen. The goal for today: understand who I’m talking to… speak their language… & spread the Truth! Have a great day everybody!
“Quite as important was the discovery that spiritual principles would solve ALL our problems” ~Anon. That’s a great statement… but what is a spiritual principle? I would define a spiritual principle as a Moral Law. Moral meaning that your heart will tell you what’s Right & what’s wrong… & law means law. Example: we can’t be selfish & happy at the same time. I know this is true because I tried to cheat that law for about 20 years… & it definitely did not work. The goal for today: let your heart tell you what’s Right… do what’s Right… & get the Right results! Have a great day everybody!
For the past 7 days I attempted to establish that the things that are truly important in life are NOT physical, material things. They are spiritual things & spiritual things CANNOT be caused by physical things. I believe the world is in poor shape because we (the human race) keep trying to get what we need from each other… rather than getting it from God & giving love to each other. We all say “Happiness is an inside job” but how many of us can honestly say we are living that way? The goal for today: stop trying to get Happiness, Peace & Freedom from people, places & things! Have a great day everybody!
“Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them” ~Abraham Lincoln. Abe was a profoundly spiritual guy & we would all do well to learn a few things from him. If I fight with my enemies, the war rages on. If I love my enemies, the war is over… at least for me. We have to stop hating people… we have to stop trying to rule over people… we need to learn how to love our enemies. Harboring hate & anger is like dumping gas on a fire. We give power to our enemies by hating them. We are keeping them alive by giving them our attention. The goal for today: destroy my enemies with love! Have a great day everybody!
Most of my life I had two major conflicting fears: the fear of being alone… & the fear of commitment. I would pull people close to me because I didn’t want to be alone… then push them away because I was afraid they might get too close. I would put people on the end of a yoyo & when they didn’t know how to act around me… I would claim that they were crazy or screwed up. The goal for today: cure both of these fears by being committed to giving love, rather than trying to get it! Have a great day everybody!
“So we think that unless some good & useful purpose is to be served, past occurrences should not be discussed” ~Anon. Do you ever bring up other people’s past mistakes? And do you do it in a spirit of love & tolerance… because you honestly want to help that person? I ask because if I have any other motive behind bringing it up… then I’m doing something wrong & it is absolutely going to end in some sort of fight, causing both parties hurt… not help. The goal for today: know that talking about my own mistakes is the best way to help others see theirs! Have a great day everybody!
For the first 12 years of my life I was educated in organized religion. For 20 years after that, I tried my hand at godlessness. And for the last 12 years I have practiced spirituality. Here is what I learned: organized religion taught me to worship people claiming to be the spokespersons for God. Heathenism is where I eliminate God altogether & I play God… I’m running the show. Spirituality is where I begin to fully understand that God lives in my heart, I cut out the middlemen & have a conscious contact with God, at firsthand. The goal for today: look hard at the end results of my faith (or lack thereof) & live the life that works best for me! Have a great day everybody!
