Love—the key to the Kingdom of Heaven

I love this 2-minute uplifting podcast. It shows the detrimental effects of anger and that our salvation from anger and resentment lies in love –the human consciousness yielding to the transforming power of Christly love.

Love is all powerful and all presence. Love owns no past, present or future but is (God, Himself/Herself) forever embracing each one of us and present each moment.

What is Love seeing and knowing? That is an important question when we want to be transformed spiritually and heal society.

Divine healing and regeneration are here for every individual. The government of God guides consciousness and is manifest in infinite blessings. No person, place or thing can ever separate us from the allness and goodness of Love. Claim it and accept this today!

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?…Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

The Bible, Romans 8:35

The healing power of church

clasped-hands-541849_960_720I love church. My love for church has grown and so has my understanding for the spiritual growth, humility and love it takes to serve Christ’s church.

The church that I love is based on the healing power of Christ. A church that is willing to love without conditions or boundaries.

I have seen the power of Christ connect people of all types and backgrounds. Liberal and conservative. Black and white. Homosexual and heterosexual. Homeless and wealthy. Toddlers and seniors. All attracted to the same church. Why? Because ultimately there is a craving for divine, infinite Love that uplifts, heals and saves and gives meaning to our lives.

Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.

may-703626_960_720This flies in the face of so much of what we see today, which wants to separate us based on our history, politics, age, race and religion. Christ is above all this. We have the right to know we are all loved and accepted (as Jesus showed us), and we can live that Christ-spirit where ever we go.

I’m not pretending the Bible doesn’t talk about judgement and separating the “goats” from “sheep” in God’s fold, but I am convinced that this is talking about states and stages of thoughts and actions.

We want to judge — be spiritually discerning in — our own thinking every day and determine if thoughts are coming from God (harmonious, loving, kind, spiritual, limitless, generous, forgiving) or from a mortal ego (limited, fearful, destructive, condemning).

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts: And see if there be any way of wickedness in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Self-knowledge is an essential component of spirituality. God knows everything that He made is good, spiritual and perfect. We can know that, too.

friends-1149841_960_720Each day I can pray: How can I love more? How can I serve You better? We can also pray wholeheartedly for a greater understanding of God and everyone’s relationship to Him. This will in turn bless us and every community.

A prayer for peace

balance-15712_960_720God, the universal Spirit, is the Source of all good and never the cause of evil. Good is a term that is synonymous with God. Good is governing the entire universe right now. Good lasts! Good is in harmony with itself and all creation. No one “owns” good because God is good. Good is abundant and always available for all people to rejoice in.

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.

When we start with God, the Cause of all good, we start our prayers correctly.

We don’t have to react to evil or change our lives to accommodate, or make room for, evil.

We never have to stop living, being and see good!

There is no door through which evil can enter, and no space for evil to fill in a mind filled with goodness.

beautiful-16736_960_720God, good, is filling all space. Let that inform your actions. The goodness of God can be the only activity in consciousness when we are at one with God and living love in our daily actions.

The world is in our consciousness and our consciousness makes up our world. So let’s not be dominated by error. Let Good, Truth, dominate error in all our thoughts and actions.

Let’s choose to live in peace, to love all our brothers and sisters,  and not give up or give in to fear.

The evil thinker is the proud talker and doer. The right thinker abides under the shadow of the Almighty. His thoughts can only reflect peace, good will towards men, health, and holiness.

Peace is present right now.

Goodness involuntarily resists evil.
