Feeling kind of bummed out today. I’m an open book and it’s no secret that I struggle with life issues. I wonder, why. I’ve had trouble making good decisions. I’ve made great decisions. All with a struggle. Because of this, I’ve caused myself to be surrounded by people who tell me everything I do wrong and fail to tell me what I do right. This type of person, loves to make me feel less than they are and I often wonder if I am ever going to be good enough. I know I’m good enough for myself but, for the others, not so much. It makes me really sad and frustrated. Yes, I’m hurt. Now, as I write this, I’m left wondering if I’m really the one that has it all together and they are the ones that need to straighten up. These are the types of people who cause undo stress. Honestly, I wonder if these people are cancer “causers”. I’m tired of this type of person. It’s my fault too. This is all my fault. I let it happen and I don’t know how to escape from this dilemma because it isn’t that easy. For the past several years, I’ve made new friendships with wonderful people who do encourage me and always tell me they love me and for that I thank cancer. Cancer always makes me see people’s true colors. It always gives me strength to stand up for myself and not let those petty people hurt me anymore.
Thinking about spiritual people.
A common factor of highly spiritual people; a past experience that causes pain. It isn’t the pain that causes the person to become spiritual either. It is the process of moving past the pain and into the present; it is learning to realize that the pain in only temporary but the spirit within last forever. Once a person deals with the pain, the pain diminishes and then the mind, body, and spirit become aligned.That is what being whole is about. I’m not talking about religion. I’m talking about the true essence of feeling whole.
Listening is another common factor that highly spiritual people have. They listen with their heart. Listening requires validating and understanding. Listening requires opening your heart and letting go of all the thoughts that cross your mind, in order to truly hear what another person is saying. It is the first step in loving one another. It is letting go of what you think, and holding on to what you feel.
God didn’t give us a brain to outsmart people and he didn’t give us a heart that doesn’t feel. He gave us a brain so we can control our body and a heart so we can communicate.
Listening with your heart puts us in a state of love. That is what a highly spiritual person is, a state of love.
This verse speaks to me. It applies to materialism.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. – Matthew 6:24
When you have two masters you depend on opposites to get you through life. You begin to hate one and love the other. Hate, love, hate, love…When you serve two masters you are stuck in a cycle of abuse that you create.
When you don’t choose the kingdom of God (which is within you) you end up idolizing material things and losing your self.
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. – Luke 17:21
When you choose the kingdom of God you come into the spirit and automatically have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. You come in to your true being.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. – Galatians 5:22-23
Give in and let God transform your experiences.Just Be.
