Everywhere and yet Nowhere

Everywhere and yet Nowhere

space

Truth is everywhere and yet nowhere at the same time. For one person it is and for another it isn’t. The truth is always there, but we don’t always perceive it, for it’s perceived by a soul who is in a condition to perceive it. If we don’t recognize it, it isn’t real to us, thus truth to us. We understand this quality of truth in many dynamics of life, one being as we mature in our souls we learn that there are lifestyles and ways of being that create peace, joy and happiness and ways that don’t. Truth, once known to a soul, is wisdom.

This absolute/eternal truth is created out of divine love, therefore love is also everywhere and yet nowhere at the same time. Like truth, we can lack to perceive it, yet is it always there. Divine love is the expression of absolute truth. While, natural love resides within relative truth.

The heavenly Father loves us with a very deep divine love that has always existed for us, for this is the nature of love. Yet, love waits for the recipient to desire it; it never forces itself upon another, for force is counter to the nature of love. In love is how the heavenly Father manifests himself in our lives. He doesn’t manifest in any other way than love, for this is of his very essence among other attributes, which all together are the expression of love. In this love of divinity is the only “place” we can “find” him, because it’s the only way we accurately perceive him as he is. This is why knowing him is an individual process and experience, for to know his love within us is something only we can perceive for ourselves within ourselves.

When we begin to believe or have faith in this truth of divine love, then it becomes real in our lives. Faith is the carrier of this love into our lives until it becomes who we are. As we start to act and live according to this divine love, we also develop a growing awareness of truth/wisdom. In this, all fear is dissolved because the reception of his never-ending loving-kindness replaces our fears. Divine love is constant, never changing, and never failing. The only thing that changes is our perception of its reality that is determined by the faith we have or lack in it. But once we know it, it just is and it is at this point that our souls experience a deep soul-rest because of the bounty of divine love that they abide in.

Divine love enters this creation through the soul by joining to the soul through a harmonious connection. So, only when we have our souls developed, which occurs by this divine love, can we perceive this love with our soul, thus be united to it.

This love of divinity has substance. It’s a substance that can fill our soul and when it does it creates a different soul reflection and inward and outward reality than a soul without it. Like light, it manifests as an energy, vibration, and frequency in our soul, and from there it flows into our lives. When our souls are in a condition to receive and maintain this higher frequency (by lifestyle choices, thoughts, words, actions, behaviors, habits), then our soul is able to find an oneness with this love, thus with our heavenly Father. All that is in our life becomes assimilated to this higher frequency so that this divine love can find a connection and become a part of our soul, thus our reality. As we seek to perceive this love of divinity, we move to a higher frequency or vibration of life because we are moving in harmony with all that makes up eternal life.

The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the activities we engage in, the soil under our feet, the thoughts we think, the words we say, the jobs we perform, the actions we take, the behaviors we engage in, the relationships we have, the things we watch, all that we listen to, everything at its subatomic level is energy. The vibration of these entities affects our energy make-up; it’s basic quantum mechanics. When the condition of our soul, influenced by everything in our lives inward and outward, finds alignment to divine love, then we find an oneness with the heavenly Father.

Our journey in this realm is learning to perceive divine love, the real, amongst the lies, the unreal. For lies make the truth a lie. We move into a unity with this love by the exercise of our free will in choosing to come into harmony with it and it’s workings, for love is always a choice. By our growing awareness, our heavenly Father becomes closer than our breath for the subatomic energy that shapes our existence from the soul outward is his divine love.

Because this love enters our lives at a subatomic level, it shapes the very essence of our being; from our soul, to our spirit body that houses our soul, to our physical body that houses our spirit body. Energy is the creative force of all matter. When the energy compiling our lives is divine love then everything in our lives flows out of this love, and manifests this love. When the energy shaping our lives lacks love (fear), then that is what our lives reflect. Our lives are a reflection of the energy that is creating them at a quantum level.

Divine love has always been there for each one of us, but often unknown because of the flawed perceptions of the heavenly Father, the progenitor of divine love to us. These faulty perceptions keep it hidden from our awareness. But once we start to desire it with a true longing deep within our soul, the light starts to shine upon this amazing love that is the answer and fulfillment to all we seek. In the light of love’s glow, all lies are dissolved, thus we transform from a soul fashioned in fear to one in love. This exchange is the most freeing transformation we can undergo.

May we by faith let divine love become the foundation of our lives until it is all that is real to us.

Healing Perspectives

Healing Perspectives

Focus on YOUR development, and love others. 

NOT neglect to love, and focus on others’ development.

I’m learning to embrace the first line and thus let go of the second, as I understand the depth and healing power that the first contains.

When I use to not agree with someone’s sense of morality, lifestyle choices, responses to others, or whatever area I may see life differently, out of fear I would feel some sort of obligation to let them know (spoken or not) to help fix, change, or influence them according to what I learned to be right and true. Unfortunately, this concern with others’ progress in their personal development caused me to respond and act in ways that came across as disapproving, critical, prying, and unloving. Often I made the situation worse. It hurt, I couldn’t understand why?

Our heavenly Father taught me a different perspective and focus that is far superior. Instead of being concerned with others’ development and trying to alter it through “correction” of my disapproval, I now know it isn’t my “disapproval” that is needed (spoken, and especially unspoken for people sense our “spirit” above all else in a situation), but my love. And not just my natural love, but a love beyond myself yet flowing through myself, divine love, for it holds a wisdom natural love doesn’t contain. Thus, I needed to focus on my development of this love and simply love them. It isn’t just how we respond to others but the spirit behind it; be it fear or love, that makes the difference.

Ironically, the people causing the most pain and harm are the ones who need the love the most. But usually those are the ones who receive it the least. So by unintentionally “withholding” our love by focusing on the wrong thing, we are creating more harm than good. When people are harming themselves and/or others, whatever guidance they need outwardly is far more effective when it comes from a spirit of love, for it’s love that is lacking and is causing the “issues/problems” in the first place.

For example, when teenagers are “unruly”, we try to correct them in doing what is right. When we neglect to truly love them in the process, they feel judged, which feels like rejection, therefore, they feel more pain on top of the pain they already felt. Only love heals, thus all we do is to be done in and with love, which comes from a place of love, not fear.

In this, I see the power of acting from a place of understanding, compassion, and healing when addressing another instead of “disapproving” and “correcting,” which to the recipient can feel like judgment and rejection. We all need more compassion given and received in our lives, for this care speaks love to our souls, the very love we need to become better, and heal as we need to.

We have never walked in another shoes; it is impossible because it would require living their exact lives from their perspective to fully understand where they are coming from and how they are struggling. But how grateful I now am for all the brushes with various “wayward ways” I’ve had throughout my life, because it gives me a greater ability to give true compassion. But even having gone through similar situations, I’ve never faced exactly what someone else has, thus there is no room for my judgments. It simply doesn’t help. Therefore to criticize another’s response or choice isn’t helpful, but only desiring to help them from a compassionate sincere heart.

Love heals. We all have had much hurt and pain in our lives. So in our desire “to help”, it’s love that is needed for every situation. It isn’t “letting someone get away with something” … they suffer the consequences enough. It’s creating an environment of love and help, allowing someone the room to grow and learn, which is what they need.

Regardless of any situation, love, care, and sincerity for another’s wellbeing are what’s helpful and beneficial to all. Our heavenly Father counsels me on how to see and think in alignment to this love. Then his love through grace helps me me to walk in it. Divine love guides us in ways far beyond what we are able to do on our own for it is a much higher superior love as it knows the depths of the souls of all mankind. Thus he shapes our love in a way beyond anything we could accomplish on our own because he knows what we do not. He can “see” what we cannot.

This intimate instruction is essential for our soul development and to grow in his “kingdom”, where divine love reigns and governs all. It’s the real. Only God’s love is truly real, for it is everlasting. All else will fade away. Thus, as we come into harmony with this love in our soul we embrace what is truly real and everlasting.

 Be to others as I am to you.

Above is another instruction of our heavenly Father to me. How does he come to me? Gentle, tender, patient, and always ready to help. He is never condemning, guilt producing, or rejecting, even in the subtleties that we have in such intimacy. There is no fear in his expression of love to me. His love is always waiting for me to embrace it, never forcing itself upon me. This is how I am to be with others. Never forcing my will or what I think they should do, but realize they have their journey and learning to do, and my role is to speak words of life that energize them on this journey. As our heavenly Father is with me, so I’m to be patient as they learn, and willing to help as they are willing to be helped. This helps me to grow as well. And this is what I would desire from them. Be and do to others as you desire them to be and do to you. 

As my mind molds to divine love’s ways, I’m seeing the wondrous results and effects of these realizations as they produce outward growth for others and me. I have much to learn and desire our perfect Father to search my depths and fill them with his divine love. It’s truly being made into a new creation, a better version, of me. My essence stays the same, but the expression of that essence from my thoughts outward is different. It’s a welcomed change that continues to grow.

Focus on love, and let it become your desire and delight by seeing the very real beauty it creates .. this is what I keep hearing.

I am finding all the answers to all I’m truly seeking and desiring in this instruction, is it really that simple? We’ve made life and knowing of our heavenly Father complicated by living in a lack of love. We connect to Him through his love by becoming in harmony with it, and his ways are always governed by love. Life gets much simpler, easier, and freeing when we start becoming a part of his love for it brings all into harmony and peace.

So I’m learning to keep my focus on my development in the love of divinity and all it entails, and as for others to simply love them with this love I’m learning of and gaining for my own by God’s grace. And I find it brings about what I was really hoping for in the first place.

May we all get close to this love and live in and by it and leave it at that.

Ever felt that life was urging you onto the next phase, stage, or stratum of life? That’s where I’m at.

Lately, I’ve been going through a lot of changes in my perceptions and understandings about the heavenly Father of us all. At times it felt like everything was turning upside down, and sometimes it still does. But he has taught and shown me enough of his divine love that in an odd way my footing has never felt so solid. (I use “he” for simplicity sake, for God is spirit.)

It’s like there was a shell from the residue of this world around my perception of him that blocked me from seeing him as he wanted me to, thus how I saw myself and others. It feels like that shell broke away, and the immense love and care that I perceive is absolutely beautifully glorious. Being infinite, I know I’ll always be learning and growing in my connection to this utmost perfect divine spirit, but what I’m “seeing” is a love that is far beyond what most have imagined, naturally for he is far far beyond us in spirit and nature, yet he remains closer to us than our breath, for he is of perfect love.

Seek and you will find …

If we diligently seek to know the truth, we end up growing in love. When we expand and grow in love everything changes; our perception, our focus, and how we see ourselves, others and our heavenly Father. Over the years of seeking truth, he has manifested himself to me by teaching me life-changing truths, counseling me through many situations and dark nights of the soul, and giving me love I lacked. He has changed me from the inside out to such a degree I no longer recognize who I was as me. He has brought a depth of love into my life that I can give to others that I never knew existed and I only want it to increase and magnify to fill all and all. There is no doubt, by what has transpired in my life that his hand has been shaping, guiding and leading, for everything has grown more beautiful. His essence form is the most caring, majestic, and loving spirit who always wants to guide, lead and help us. But as love is gentle, tender and patient, so is he toward us and he waits for us to come to him. He never forces himself on us. But when we are willing to listen, he is always right there. He is the perfect spirit parent of us all.

We perceive and know God’s spirit according to our level of soul development or maturity. As we transform in our soul, we perceive everything and everyone differently including God. My perception has changed to such an extent that there is a new foundation rising up in my life extending from my morphing soul, one constructed of his divine love. Though small, it’s like my feet have moved onto a new platform. I have so much to learn of this love and still much growth to occur in my soul to be the reflection of this love as I desire.

Due to my growing understanding of the amazing love and nature of our Creator that’s starting to consume my life, I’m allowing this blog and my YouTube Channel to embrace that change as well. I’ve wrestled with leaving the trail I’ve journeyed, but what presses upon me as more important is allowing his reflection to grow truer, that means letting go of the past. When we start stepping ahead, we can leave the past behind.

The heavenly Father wants us to know him, and sometimes, often, by letting go of the past and embracing our present, which he has crafted, helps us to continue to move forward in him and with him, a movement deeper into his perfect divinity.

How true are the two commandments given to us by our Christ: love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love others as yourself. Love of divinity is what is needed for all of us. And really this is what it all comes down to, isn’t it? All else is a distraction from the attainment of our deepest and truest desires.

Evolution of the Spirit Mind

Evolution of the Spirit Mind

space

The ways and laws of the Old Testament in the Bible were a reflection of mankind’s understanding of who they believed God to be and what they thought God wanted according to the image they held of God. Thus they had animal sacrifice, stoning, harsh judgments, and various laws. They saw God in a certain way and everything was filtered through that image.

The church system does the same thing today. Water baptism, communion, tithing, “corporate” worship, and their understanding of what being a “good Christian” means is based upon their image of God and how to “worship” and “serve” Him.

It’s deemed that today’s reflection is a more “loving” reflection of God. Yet, the image is still based upon mankind’s ideas and not the true nature of God, which is made evident from the countering acts that are contrary to a “loving” God. A glaring one is the unkind treatment and attitude of indifference to other creations of God’s creation. This kind of treatment to others isn’t found in divine love, for divine love protects one from suffering. But this isn’t seen as odd or even contradictory because of mankind’s perception of who they believe God to be. For example, be kind to your neighbor, but perpetuate mass cruelty to animals. It’s all contradictory and we will find contradictions in what isn’t truth, which is always sown in divine love. When we start learning of the love of the true God, that truth holds no contradictions because it reflects the real nature of God.

God’s reflection can’t be contained in a book, even the Bible, only man’s understanding of who He is.  Anything, even “words” of God, that pass through the mind of man is always limited to that mind and the perceptions it holds. The image of the OT God was true and real for those who followed it, as we can see by the acts they took in the name of God, just as much as the image is true for the church today, but that doesn’t make it the true reflection.

The truth is what is real. It never changes. What is real is the love of God that fills ALL in ALL, because this is what divine love does. What mankind perceives is always connected to and limited to their ability to perceive certain qualities or receive a certain understanding. We can’t truly know and believe what we don’t first perceive. We are all limited by our perceptions. This is why we want to see or perceive from divine love, and that alone, for that is what is truly real, and how we come to know God’s true nature, and thus be a part of Him.

What I’m learning is that divine love, the love of God, extends to the smallest creation and to every living creation, thus why when we start growing in divine love we have a growing and deepening love for all of creation, even ants. It is a true concern and care in which we desire NONE to suffer to ANY degree. This is why I’ve been talking so much about the animals, it is the growing understanding of the extent and nature of divine love, the true reflection of the heavenly Father.

This love extending to all without boundary, limitation or cessation is a reflection of God’s love. It’s a love that desires not only that none should perish, but that none should suffer. Divine love prevents suffering. It prevents fear. This is why it is so powerful, desirable, beautiful and magnificent in our lives. These torments can’t exist in its presence. This is why when we are fully in this love suffering and fear cease to exist. This is why there is no suffering for eternity; the perfect love of God in our lives prohibits it. And praise God for that!!

So now you must be wondering how can suffering exist here?

This is an unreal reality. It’a a picture of a place without God’s love that is why there is so much confusion about who God is, because it lacks His love. How can something exist without the love of God who fills all in all, except that it is an unreality, like a dream state, a deep sleep, or a “death” state. Death, the absence of love, doesn’t exist in the reality of divine love. This state is exactly what it prohibits.

Does being aware of this “dream” state make the love we know and give any less significant? No, on the contrary, we can only understand the true nature of this dream state from the perspective of divine love, and when we are in divine love that love never lessens but only grows deeper and continually increases.

So this dream that we are partaking of is serving a specific purpose. In it we are learning many things, and above all without this divine love and only a tainted natural human love, this reality is what is created, everything contrary to God, even His very image.

This is going to be an interesting year ….

My Journey into Divine Love

My Journey into Divine Love

Space

I’ve sought truth for a long time and my journey into the ways of truth has led me into divine love. In this upside down world, this love is rare and a magnificent treasure. Diving into it has consumed me lately, for it’s part of the divinity of God that we receive and give. The more I learn of it and experience it; the more I desire it with every fiber of my being and for it to consume everything.

This weekend, it will be a year since I became a vegetarian, and in February of next year, a vegan.

Becoming a vegetarian bloomed out of the Holy Spirit’s instruction. Very briefly, I learned that to ascend to the realm of divine love, which is life-giving and contains no death, I couldn’t be a soul feasting on death, thus full of death, thus tied to the death realm. But a spirit feasting on life, thus full of life, thus connected to the realm of life.

As for becoming a vegan, I saw a documentary on the meat and dairy industry. It’s an industry full of cruelty with no care for the animals; an industry totally void of any kind of love. At that moment, in seeing images that still haunt me, I became a vegan. My spirit fully rejected the hell I was witnessing. And that spilled over into no leather, products tested on animals, and so on. Being a vegan, from the heart, is about love. It’s choosing love over convenience, habit, culture, tradition, or for a lustful taste that lasts a moment (which actually wasn’t the meat and dairy in itself, but all that was added to it, one of many lies.)

Since my awakening to divine love, I’ve stood amazed at my prior blindness and lack of love. I also am a bit amazed that the “religious” nation isn’t mostly vegan. If God is love, and they “serve” and “love” God, wouldn’t such clear acts of cruelty be absent from their lives, lives dedicated to a God of love? I’m amazed because so many profess to know God, yet don’t seem to know divine love. But this is what I’ve learned about divine love, we can only grasp it, if we allow it to become a part of us, that means a change from the inside out.

Since my exchange to feasting on life and not death, my understanding of divine love has exploded because I’m allowing divine love to move into my life. The understanding and experience of it is transforming my thoughts, desires, behaviors, words, and actions. It’s a whole new reality in which to dwell. It’s moving into the higher realm of the spirit where God abides and no longer of the lower realm of the carnal mind of mankind lost in darkness.

With the peeking of divine love into my life, this year has been one of significant purging of my mind and soul.  Divine love is the fire of God. It purifies us as we start to live by it because we can’t love and abide in blindness, suffering, cruelty, and death. There was grit and grim lining my soul I was unaware of, but when I choose to love God’s living creation with my life, I started a transformation that has blessed every aspect of my life. Divine love in a marriage is miraculous and beyond beautiful. Now, almost a year later of purging and renewal, it seems a new connection is being made by this divine love, a living connection in which I sense living waters can flow.

Divine love is love with a part of divinity. This love is received from the One who is truly divine, the heavenly Father. It’s a love that reflects the characteristics of His divinity.

To move into divine love, we have to desire it. It’s gentle. Divine love is like a dance between two entities. It’s a give and take of a fluid movement. It never forces itself upon another, but is given as it is received, and received as it is given.

Divine love is holy. Thus to be able to receive it and give it, we have to be purified in our souls that we may be connected to it. A corrupt mind can’t produce loving thoughts, thus actions. A corrupt soul can’t hold purity, thus give it.

Divine love is life. In it there is no death, because it creates perfect righteousness.

It’s liquid light.

It’s like liquid because it’s like water, which is like spirit. Spirit is contained within the human soul, like water is contained in a body. Like water, when we possess this divine love we can give it to another, it’s a cup of living water to another soul. It’s living because it is coming from God’s divinity, which is life. But like a cup of water, it must be received and taken in. As a cup of water can be rejected, so can divine love. We have to desire it to receive it. That means we have to be willing to be changed by it. This means making changes in our lives, lifestyle, and choices.

It’s light because it’s a reflection of the character of God; pure, undefiled, holy, righteous, perfect, and of spirit and truth. By it, we have eyes of light and see with the right perspective, thus respond with a higher love to situations and people. It contains no darkness, no emptiness, and no lack, thus no fear. Love of the human realm is full of fear because it’s full of lack; lack of true care. Divine love is the only love that fully drives out fear in every area, because it contains no lack as it cares perfectly.

This type of love only comes from our perfect heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit. It comes through the Holy Spirit, for He is the spirit that purifies our souls by truth. The Holy Spirit is a spirit that if we desire truth, will come to us and instruct us. And because truth is grounded in divine love, we learn about love.

In this purification by the truth, we are able to connect to this divine love; to give and receive it. With a pure mind and soul, we can be connected to the Holy Heavenly Father in divine love.  We receive as a part of our soul, His perfect love for us. And we love Him with all our mind, soul, heart, and strength as our lives are changed in accordance with His love, our minds function by this love, and all we do serves this love.

Once purified, we fully receive the love that God desires to give us. In this we are completed, filled, and never lacking, thus without fear.

In this connection, we can truly confess to the Most High that “we love each other” in all sincerity and truth. There is nothing more powerful than when we can say these four words to another out of divine love, especially God. It is the fluid connection expressed in the infinity symbol; two spheres (spirits) coming together at a point of perfection, divine love, between each other. In this connection, eternal life exists.

In this joining, we truly become children of the Most High. We receive a connection to the fount of living waters, liquid light. And, we become of the light to give the light.

I have much to learn, but is there any way better that to receive and give divine love?

Seeking into the Beyond

Seeking into the Beyond

Who is God?

space

In the way of perfect goodness there is only life.

Why would a God of love and life cast a reflection of death, killing, animal sacrifice (offering of fear and death), stoning, and eating of dead flesh as we see in the Old Testament of the Bible? Is this the reflection of the true eternal God of divine love? How can what is life reflect death? How can perfect love reflect fear? How can a mirror reflect something opposite? These are the questions a soul seeking truth asks.

When we are seeking the truth, thus the source of truth, we have to ask ourselves is the image of god, the one our minds have been shaped with, the true God Almighty?

Life is life, not death. Life reflects life, not death. It can’t be what it isn’t.

In seeking truth, we are led beyond all that is of this world, what is created by this world, and what is sown in this world, that which is darkened in corruption. We go above the dark clouds of fear, death and suffering, that hover over this lower realm and discover a higher realm where purity, truth, life and divine love exists. As humans we were blessed with this capacity by the Spirit of Truth – to connect through the spirit, beyond the spirit that hovers and governs this world, to a higher Spirit who exists beyond this creation. We must ascend above the film of this reality into the spirit beyond.

In this ascension, we start to “see” the essence of the Most High, who is perfect divine love. Then we ask, who is the god of the Bible, the Old Testament? One Jesus greatly contrasted? Bound in their beliefs of a god of death, Christ gently showed them the reflection of God Almighty who is beyond this lower realm. He spoke in a way they could receive by starting with what they knew, their perceptions of god. He contrasted the higher law with the lower one, teaching that love and life, not fear and death, are the nature of the Most High.

This god of the lower realm rules by fear, not love. Fear is the lack of love. Love fills the emptiness of a soul and in doing so drives out all fear. Fear involves torment because of the lack; lack of care, healing, protection, safety, mercy, counsel, comfort, care, and kindness. Fear doesn’t involve healing and love. Fear and perfect love can’t co-exist, for one is the lack of the other. So who is this god they called Father? The god of this world, one formed without love and therefore that is how he rules?

There is no fear in perfect love.

Christ came reflecting and teaching that we have the ability to connect to the Most High, as he did. And not only connect, but to be a part of His divine love as he was, and be a spiritual entity that never dies when it’s of life. Divine love is the supreme good, perfect governance and superior state of mind for any creation. It prevails over all. Thus, Christ left us with a new command to govern our mind, to love as he loved which was with the eternal Father’s divine love, a love not of this world. Not commands of death, killing, cruelty, stoning, animal sacrifice, feasting on death sown in fear and pain, hatred …only perfect love.

By embracing the ways of divine love, we are separated from the governance of the god of this world. We are set free from serving what is opposite of love, and embark on a path of being transformed by this divine love. We begin to take on a new likeness of the Supreme Creator, thus transitioning into children of the Most High. In this likeness, we live and act in accordance to divine love and its principles and ways. Thus, we start to reflect His nature, as Christ did. What we do and live by reflects our God, who is a creator and dispenser of thoughts; thoughts/beliefs that govern us.

Our thoughts either create and feed fear, death, suffering, cruelty, torment, lust and rebellion OR kindness, care, compassion, beauty, honor and love toward all of creation. We can’t do both for one is the opposite of the other. One comes from an emptiness, the other from an oneness. The characteristics that govern our beliefs reveal the god governing our mind.

One god feeds us death, the other life. We feast on lies or truth. We feast on the flesh of the dead or the fruits of the living. Our choices and lives are a reflection of who we serve and know God to be or not to be. The more we know of the Most High God, the more our life is of life and not death; not consuming death, wearing death, feeding fear, or governed by fear. The desire of one who is of divine love is not to do anything that is counter to it. When we choose the paths of life, we become a part of the eternal life. Along the way, we are transformed from the inside out into creations reflecting a higher realm, and no longer the lower one we were born into.

May we let love, true, sincere, and real divine love, be our only guide in our daily lives. Not convenience, habit, tradition, culture, mankind’s religions, or the world’s wisdom. This is the awakening to true righteousness. It’s coming out of the ways of blindness (darkness) and into a healing reality of life.

As I have been seeking the truth, divine love met me on my path. Walking in its principles creates more life and love in your life, not less.  Love forever grows and expands in your life for it is of life. It’s the supreme way and governance. When we seek truth in all sincerity, we come to find divine love. It’s the way of perfection for all of creation. The perfection of love is a reflection of the Most High God.

May we all come out of the blinding darkness and into the marvelous light.

May You, supreme perfect Heavenly Father/Mother who is beyond this creation, turn Your eye upon us and flood Your light of divine truth into this dark place. May Your Spirit of perfect love free this creation and every creature from fear, suffering, and death.

May the god of this world be healed by the light of Your countenance shining through those who love you. May his will be turned to Your will that all those under his sway may be transitioned into the light.

May those of contrary intent have their plans foiled and may the results prosper the heavenly Kingdom in their reality.

May those bound in emptiness without love experience the dawning of Your divine love in their reality.

May the weak, who are oppressed by those bound in emptiness, be freed from their bondage and suffering. May they be honored above all creatures.

May those who hunger and thirst for You and Your righteous love be filled to overflowing for the good of all.

May the glory of Christ be made manifest in this place so that You are united to Your entire creation in a bond of perfect love in all truth and sincerity, for this is Your will.

How do you “see” God?

How do you “see” God?

Space 

Do you “see” the true God? How do you know? He is invisible and spirit, so what we “see” and experience is actually our understanding of His nature. We see His reflection, in our lives and in creation, and that reflection is based on our particular and individual understanding. Our understanding makes up our image of Him. Our image in turn defines what we see. Do you see the circular effect of this and the problem it holds? Our image determines what we see, thus how we believe Him to be, which comes from our original understanding. And the question is where did that original understanding come from? So, how do we know we have the right understanding, thus the right image? Especially in a world of many people holding many different images?

The pure in heart will see God. Matthew 5:8 The pure in heart have the right understanding of the nature of God because their path to purity taught them to “see” Him correctly. Understanding and obtaining true purity only comes from One more pure.

This truth that the pure in heart will see God is why religions and religious people seek to portray an outward pure or holy persona. Many dress up the outward to fool others and even themselves of their piety, but it’s the purity of the heart that allows us to “see” God. If we are drawing near to the true God, we are growing more and more pure from the inside out.

The pure in heart is one who seeks, practices, abides and gives divine love. God is perfect love. Only by living by and for divine love do we know what it is. Thus it must be lived, not just talked about. When we start living it we start “seeing” the true nature of God, for God is love.

Becoming Pure in Heart

We come to this purity through grace and wisdom by being faithful disciples of Truth, the Word, our internal counselor, shepherd, and overseer of our soul. To become pure in heart is a very personal journey, this is why we can’t learn about God from another. If we do, we will hold a false image instead of a true image. We learn about love from within. Someone can describe love, but to truly know love, we have to become an expression of it in truth and sincerity. Within our soul is where we learn about divine love and how to live in it. The only Teacher who can penetrate those depths is the spirit of truth, the Holy Spirit. Love is only known when it is lived.

The path of purification is a long, winding and arduous road, because this world is corrupt and we are born with corrupt natures. Matthew 7:14 If we truly hunger for the true God and truth, His spirit of truth takes us on an intense schooling through our life situations that purify, purge, and change us in many ways before we can give anything close to this divine love. In this love there is no resentment, bitterness, envy, jealously, contentions, pride, backbiting, judging, self-pity, lusts, vengeance, cares for this world’s ways, or temptations counter to the nature of divine love. It’s full of mercy, forgiveness, beauty, true wisdom, understanding, long suffering, patience, compassion, care, kindness, gentleness, humility, meekness, peace, which extends far beyond our personal cares to the care of others. To go through this exchange in our soul is becoming a new creation altogether. Nothing stays the same. We have to be remade and re-born of a different spirit. Until, we are no longer an offspring of corruption, but an offspring of purity.

If we start to seek and engage this divine love, we learn it requires a great purity of mind, heart, soul and life, for it’s of holy ground, for it’s the nature of the heavenly Father. This is why few find this path; it’s a very pure path, thus contrary to most of the world’s ways. As we journey this purification path, the understanding that comes from growing in this love creates the right understanding thus “image” of God, His nature and ways.

Along this narrow path of ever-increasing purity through purging and renewing, we are brought to a point of having sold all (all that is contrary to divine love) in order to obtain the pearl of infinite worth, entrance into the kingdom of God. We sell (abandon) all the lusts, cares, and temptations of the world as we learn the superiority, beauty and perfection of the ways of God and the absolute joy they bring. The pure words of our Teacher and High Priest, Christ, replace the lies that once governed our beliefs, thoughts and actions, and we are now governed by the truths of God. Thus, our minds and spirits are cleansed exuding the likeness of a beautiful pearl. John 17:17 This purity allows us to slip through the very narrow gate to the realm of the divine. Purity opens the gate at the end of the narrow path to “see” God. And it is through this gate that prayers ascend to the ears of God and are most powerful. 1 Peter 3:12

The pure in heart are the ones who “see” God. These, who once lived as children of disobedience as all of mankind, are the ones who are purified by the fire (the truth). They are free from corrupt desire, sin, and guilt. 1 John 3:9 They are blameless and holy in conduct. Ephesians 1:4-5 Above all they abide in divine love. 1 John 4:7

Suppose you learn and start to live according to this divine love. What you realize is that God is not here in the earth, because if He was this would be a very pure and holy place. There would be no suffering, cruelty, pain or sorrow. There would be healing, beauty, and eternal life. God not being here is why so many images of God exist in the minds of people. There is nothing to tell the masses what He is or isn’t. We individually can know His divine love, but having an understanding versus abiding in His fullness thus power are two very different realties. Though I believe the former precedes the latter.

This is why we yearn for the coming of His spirit. Divine love is real, we can taste its goodness in our lives by understanding. This is a love not of our own making, but something much higher and pure than mere human nature. It goes against our basic primal nature we are born with, yet it is the supreme desire of our soul. It’s our desire, because we are made with a desire for our Creator, for love wants to abide in love with all of His creation. His love beckons us to draw near to be a part of His nature, and if we answer the call then our spirits ascend to places we never knew we could go, and eventually unto eternal life. If we were all pure, we would hold one image, and the right one. This is the work that Christ came to do and will finish; it is His glory to behold, and gift to the Father of All. Hebrews 12:2 

You become pure in heart.

Time of Revealing and Testing

Time of Revealing and Testing

Okay … why so much talk about loving the animals?

If you’ve been following my blog and videos, perhaps you are wondering … why am I talking so much about showing loving kindness to the animal kingdom? Some have wondered what this loving kindness toward them has to do with God and the times we are in, ironic isn’t it?

It has everything to do with the establishment of His kingdom in righteousness, truth and loving kindness.

The spirit of God that brings in and governs His kingdom within us arises like the dawning of a new day. If you are awake, of the Day, you are starting to see the glory of His presence, the expression of divine love. In the light of this perfect love, it’s illuminating what is of His spirit and what isn’t, the revealing, in order to cleanse us, to be His dwelling place. You also are seeing that this world’s ways are consumed in a very thick cloud of darkness that isn’t familiar to this love or a part of it. When the light of truth/love enters into our realm, all the hidden works contrary to God are revealed. It uncovers all the ways of this world and of our lives that are full of corruption. This is why I am talking about this love for the animal kingdom; it’s a very bright reflection I’m seeing in His light.

In revealing what is good, pure, love and of Him and what isn’t, it tests our “works” thus hearts. As God’s spirit encounters our lives and the many facets of it, it is embraced or rejected. It’s embraced if we know Him; it’s rejected if we don’t. And to know Him is to know His love.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

How is it embraced or rejected? If we give or don’t give this divine love to others, from the least to the greatest. For, to love others is to love God. And, what we do to the least, we do to Him.

Extending divine love to all of creation for creation is our “work”. Why is it our work? Because all of us have been raised in a culture lacking this godly characteristic. Most types of love, including familial love where we learn about love, are largely contrived of self-preservation, obligation, pride, self-ambition, and to make us feel good about ourselves and to look good to others. It’s for approval, praise, lust, or to please others, which is really self-gratification. It’s a love that at its core is most concerned for itself and most motives are for one’s own advancement or benefit. This is where we all start, thus we must seek to know God’s love and truth. And only His spirit of truth can teach us for it is an inner work of the heart, mind, soul and spirit.

The ability to give divine affection is a reflection of one’s spiritual maturity as it mirrors one’s understanding of the divine nature of God and their connectedness to Him. 1 Timothy 1:5

Divine love is absolutely pure and perfect. Its only motive is to treat others from the least to the greatest perfectly. It delights in caring for others for their sake. It loves beyond itself. It cares for the suffering of others even if it’s not seemingly directly impacted. It desires every thought, word, and act to affect others in a way that is the very best for them. It loves at all times, in all situations, to all creation. It sees every living creation in loving kindness. Luke 10:25-37

So why animals? There are many reasons as I’ve spoken and written about, but here’s another. They are the least of creation, by mankind’s definition, and they are innocent. A love for the innocent and weak is the starting point of divine love ending with loving our enemies. If we don’t care for them and their suffering at our own hands, how can we love even our enemies? It’s all inclusive. We can’t truly love others and not love the animal kingdom as well. Divine love knows no boundaries. It extends to all because all belongs to God and God will fill all in all. 1 Corinthians 15:28

We are born of God when we give this divine love. This understanding is highlighted in the book of 1 John, which I read today and prompted this post. To say that we are a part of God and love Him, and yet hate others, we are fooling ourselves. To inflict harm, fear and suffering upon others is a part of hatred. To believe we can act this way and be apart of God’s perfect love is a delusion, and a very strong delusion capturing many souls.

Do we walk in loving kindness fulfilling the commands of God or do we delight in our lusts instead? How we treat others reveals our hearts and whether we know divine love or not; it is the spirit of truth testing our hearts. It is God’s love and wisdom approaching our hearts and our response is how we answered. Luke 12:45-46

When divine love defines our actions, we are a part of God. It means His seed is within us and growing. 1 John 3:9 It’s demonstrating that we have a self-perfecting mind being crafted by the spirit of God and are moving into eternal life where His righteousness and perfect love reign. We may lack awareness, but we are no longer contrary to God in our conscience, heart, desires, and motives. The spirit of God will teach us through our mistakes causing our love to increase and abound. May we humble ourselves and realize that we’ve been brought up in a world very contrary to the love of God and need to have a mind of a novice and start to learn to love.

And I can’t help but wonder if this is the beginning of the end when all is starting to be revealed and tested to bring in a new reign of righteousness upon this earth. Revelation 3:10, 1 Corinthians 3:13-15 I pray so, the suffering is so very great.
