finding the god within and without

Are you someone that relies on another to tell you who you are?  Does your mind sometimes tell you that you are less than you are?  Less able, less capable, less beautiful, less powerful? Or are you someone that knows who you are?

God is a hot topic these days especially when times are really bad or really good.  People feel that either God is punishing them for their sins or that they are really blessed for what He’s done.  My viewpoint on this is that ‘We all have the seeds of greatness inside, the ‘god-seed’ and our very reality is built upon agreement.  We are essentially spiritual beings carrying around a body to inhabit as the spirit is invisible.  When life is present in anything or anyone, then the spirit is there-the god-within.

Some people act and do things that are noble in making the world a better place; a place where one’s ideas can be expressed as in the arts, science, and technology.  There is that bit of knowledge that is needed that carries a responsibility to forward and move it to the front; then to control that without harming the other.  The very freedoms of our society are built on intellectuals, and the artists- those that can imagine and bring forth a better world.

The mind of man can be changed that we know.  Yet, can the mind of man be such as to have complete admiration, beauty and the ability to or not to communicate to others regardless of where that might be in space and time?  A resounding yes is my answer!  The ideal man is about the god within displayed without.  It scares some people to think that there is that capacity or ability to be that.  But it is true because it is essentially who we are, spiritual beings.  God, in Its Imagination, has and will continue to form man according to its image.  We cannot help but be conformed as our awareness increases.

The I AM A SPIRIT book lays out the messages that are true for anyone.  For we are all one, yet very individual and unique.   The god within each of us communicates that and is agreed upon by those who know who they are.  The god within you is the same god within me-the only difference being is that we all have our different talents and skills to offer the world.  God within is a mighty statement-one that The Best of Me from a-z! Virtues and Traits for Kids espouse as the world only recognizes who we are by our example.   The children of today should be concerned with who they potentially are and live up to that ideal-an ideal that is built on imagination, sovereignty, independence, self-determinism, self-reliance, and freedom.  The abler we all can be, the fewer burdens put upon the rest of the world.

Some Solutions to finding the god within and without:

  • Study other religious beliefs to help foster peace as only then will there’ll be communication, understanding, and appreciation of the similarities and commonalities we all have.
  • Help further those causes that help each of us to be more cognizant of the god-within and who help us develop those abilities and talents so that we all can be more ethical and responsible beings.

Let us remember it was William Shakespeare who wrote, “To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

So that being said- Be yourself, keep learning and growing and may you never be the same!

Closing the Gap with Communication

Back in 2017 when I published my second hardback book, I am a SPIRIT, The ABCs of an Ideal Spirit, I never thought I’d be caught up in disagreements, misunderstandings  and disputes to the extent I am confronted with today and particularly in the area where I live.  My intentions were then, as well as now, pure and based in truth, my truth.  Simply, my intentions are to draw religions together, particularly the viewpoints of Christians to modern day religious views.  I feel at times that great gains are made, yet feel frustrated that the other viewpoints are so ensconced in hardened cement.  There needs to be further discourse and dialog among ‘believers’ and brothers and sisters.

This intention has been my life’s purpose this go ’round, meaning this lifetime-to bring unity and union among believers.  While speaking of believers,   I am a believer in reincarnation or reembodiment meaning coming back into physical form if one has not accomplished his purpose or mission in prior lifetimes and/or paid back or properly recompensed his misuse of energy in the current lifetime.

If mastery of life has been accomplished, if that soul has worked out his salvation, then there awaits for that soul, a life in spirit, not physical form but leaving the body behind in the physical world to continue to do God’s work in the spheres in the limitless universes.  I believe in the Creed of the Catholic Church that says there will be the resurrection and gathering of saints one day…at the end of the age.  I believe in the Spirit, the Holy Spirit, in Christian terminology, and also I believe in the soul, his personality and man’s spirit.  Man’s spirit will one day join in and become one with and in Spirit is my viewpoint.

To lay the groundwork for my newly published book, I am a SPIRIT, I will publish how and in what steps the Spirit moved through me to write this book using scripture.

The messages in the book are one-liners and are simple, yet profound.  How it was published was to use a well-known verse and to see God face to face in my neighbors, friends, and acquaintances.  It led me to treat all brothers and sisters, to my best of ability, with patience, kindness and love and with great affinity using the Golden Rule.  I believe Jesus the Christ’s message was thus so.  But for all those that are following this dispute and would like to help bring peace in the world, I lay out the Bible’s own verses itself that spoke to me.  The following verses are the very foundation and cornerstone of truths that I hope bring you joy, understanding and peace, too.  Please share, comment and let me know if and how this resonates with you, won’t you?

Communication is the only path to peace, so let’s dialog.

 

 

As you notice, the title of the book above, is the title I was inspired to use from the book’s very conception.  It was the subtitle, too, that explains that there IS an Ideal Spirit…God (or whatever name you call God), who is Spirit.  So follow with me now, the scriptures I used and followed in bringing this book to fruition for all Christian readers alike.

  1. Question:  Who is the Great I AM?  Answer:  The Great I AM is Spirit, or Love.  Scripture Reference: Exodus 3:14  
  2. Question:  Who lives in me and is life and gives me life?  Answer:  God lives in me and is Life.  Scripture Reference:  John 14:10
  3. Question: Who is all around us and in us?  Answer:  God or Life is all around us and in us.  Scripture Reference: John 11:25
  4. Question:  Does God find favor?  Answer:  God does not find favor.  Scripture Reference:  Romans 2:9-11
  5. Question: If God is love and those who remain in love remain in God, does God remain in them?  Answer: Yes, God is love, and those who remain in love remain in God and God remains in them.  Scripture Reference: 1 John 4:16
  6. Question: How is the Spirit known?  Answer:  The Spirit is Truth.  Scripture Reference: 1 John 5:6
  7. If Jesus ‘had’ God and God ‘had’ Jesus, then who did Jesus act as?  Answer:  Jesus acted as God because Jesus bears witness of the Spirit within him by saying: “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.  (1 John 15:8) Scripture Reference: 1 John 15:9 “Remain in my love.
  8. Question: How do you remain in love?  Answer: We remain in love by living an ethical and moral life following the two greatest commandments to name a couple of ways.  Scripture Reference: 1 John 15:10
  9. Question: What was the Commandment Jesus gave us?  Answer: “This is my commandment, “Love each other just as I have loved you”. Scripture Reference: 1 John 15:12
  10. Question: How shall you know my followers?  Answer: By their fruits you shall you know them.  Scripture Reference:  Matt. 7:16-2

    Thus, in conclusion, speak Living Words, speak the Truth of not What’s in you, BUT WHO is in YOU…God, the Great I AM.

    This is how the Great I AM led me to write and publish the book, I am a Spirit.  There is no conflict between what Christians believe and the new and ever-growing 21st Century’s religion.  I encourage you to study to show yourself approved…I encourage you to seek out what the Truth is as my brother and sister in Christ.

    I’m looking forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to ask.

May words bring healing
to your heart I’m feeling

Some may not be appealing
vulgarities stealing

Why not healing words
with only positive verbs.

I AM

 

Version 2

                                                 I AM PLAYING MY TRUMPET!

There’s no other way around it.

I am asserting who I am and what I am about.

I believe a lot more people in the world need to know who they are as well.

If they DID know who they were and how they originated, then I believe we would have more harmony in the world.

We come from God, Yahweh, Source, Creator, Life or whatever name you know by whatever language you speak.

We are basically good.

Since we come from God, we are Spirit.

We each have a distinct purpose in Life.

Are you living your purpose?  Do you know what your purpose is?

Are you a self-governing individual?  If so, that’s great.  If not, there’s help.

 

“Know ThySelf” is a well-known axiom.

Know Life is in you right now, so that through you, Life can continue and grow and prosper and then start all over again.

(Look at Nature as an example.)

Expect the unexpected!
