Looking Back

Morning Meds. 11 19 19

We interpret life according to our opinions. Our opinions form the photos we place in the photo album of memories we carry with us.

The thoughts triggered this morning from my album are useful to myself and may not produce the same reaction for others. So please bear with me.

The movement from one religious’ system to another, makes for some turbulent times. I assume others have encountered this. This transition is still simmering on the stove of my experience.

To have peace, I’ve had to return to my Christian roots, to reevaluate them.

I know that without their influences in my life, I wouldn’t be experiencing the view I now have, and my new views are not the ones I was taught.

I believe that all religions and spiritual paths lead to the Creator of all.

The profound truths in all of them gets lost in social interpretation.

Source speaks to where we are, individually and globally. Always has, always will.

When we discount a belief system of another person or group of people, we discount a part of ourselves. We are all one.

I have been throwing out lots of old beliefs that were once categorized as truths.

I am down to what might be, five possible truths.

1. Everything is Source

2. Everything and everyone is energy.

3. If The creator of all is everything, we and everything about us is a part of Source.

4. The everything Source is, is love.

5. Source is ga-ga in love with me, unconditionally.

If I am prejudiced against prejudiced people, I am prejudiced. If I exclude people who are excluding, then I am an excluder. When I become angry at violence, I have taken on the essence violence. I know this is old stuff, I just have to remind myself quite often.

What I got this morning, was the verse from Corinthians, explaining what love is. ” Love is kind …etc.” I have always used this as a measuring stick to see where I need to improve.

Seeing me and this belief system have not always been on the best of terms, this verse was a traditional, “damn boy, you’ll never measure up.” Just another way to stop myself of having any hope of self-acceptance.

This series of verses may not be a measuring stick, but instead an explanation of how Source sees me every time and always.

Source is ga-ga in love with me. All the attributes of love are his, toward me.

I have had to adjust my viewpoint to stop the turmoil.

I just need to separate the useful from the unhelpful.

If I send hate and anger to where I came from, I will reap hate and anger. This breeds turmoil.

Instead, I started to send it love, acceptance and gratitude for where it has led me. It has spoken many loving words to me during my lifetime.

Source is a cornucopia pouring out love. This love is hidden in all the spiritual paths that are embraced by humanity.

Send love to yourself, all others and to those damns whomever you’re not happy with.

Love and acceptance of ourselves and other, liked or disliked, is the only path that can ever bring peace to our planet.

My wife Cheryl and I live in St. Joseph, Missouri. She is retired and watches three of our 12 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandchild. I work as a maintenance man at Highland Community College in Highland, Kansas. I have a BA in Art with an emphasis in ceramics. I am a second degree Reiki practitioner and BQH (Beyond Quantum Healing) practitioner. I started writing spiritual related posts in 2018 and started sharing them on a few different Facebook sites. This site is to consolidate and re-share them. It is also to share short stories based on images seen while in meditation. My hopes are that it will inspire others to use the powerful tool of visualisation to enhance their spiritual journey. Thank you.
