STEPPING OUT IN FAITH

You gotta believe! That has been the motto of many a person and even pro sports teams over the years. While many of us fail to see that we demonstrate great faith in many things every day we still exhibit faith very often. The biggest problem many of us have is that we "misplace" our faith in things we do not want to see manifest instead of placing our faith in things we do want to see transpire. You don't think you have much faith huh? Hey, most of you will soon get behind the wheel of an automobile and start the ignition. Right? And you don't stop to wonder if the ignition will start(most of the time) and you don't think about all it entails for an auto to crank, no, instead you just have faith that it will start when you turn the ignition on. Likewise, while you are driving down the avenue you place a lot of faith in the other drivers around you, in the traffic signals that they are properly working etc. And when you go to slow down you have faith that the brakes when applied will stop the car. I know this is a simple illustration of faith but faith is faith no matter what label one applies. We use our faith every moment in this life oft times in a negative way. How many times have you heard someone say--Hey, I never win anything- but still you see them buying a raffle ticket. A case of misplaced faith to me. Any way I know faith is a very personal thing to each of us but still I think we should all try and keep our faith on a positive track. Why it seems to be that we can easily believe in something "bad" happening to us, but can't find the same conviction of faith when it comes to believing that something "good" will come our way. Here's hoping that each of you will take a close look at your "inner" beliefs or faith and see if they can be redirected to a positive view. Martin Luther King Jr. once stated this: "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." May you all reach out and begin the ascent to your highest goals and ambitions in a perfect faith in all you do. And please remember that as life rewards you with all good things just take what you need and share the rest with those less fortunate. The very best I wish for you and yours now and forever!

Instead of focusing on this 3 dimensional space as being real, become CYNICAL about everything you see and hear, because everything is a lie. Don’t simply be a pessimist, for pessimism still believes in the validity and reality of the 3D plane. Be 100% CYNICAL.. Without attitude, without emotion, without any reaction whatsoever, … be a complete cynic. This attitude will reconnect you with the Original Wisdom State. You virtually eliminate the veil of deceit and lies. You eliminate the human aspect concerning your 3D life experience, that you’ve believed your entire life, is who you really are. Cynicism doesn’t have to be equated with depression or despair, or even anger and resentment. Cynicism is to shun stupidity, ignorance, and lunacy, in all its intellectual and religious forms … and reconnect and refocus on the Eternal Wisdom State. We simply don’t need to be influenced by a Beam of Light. This influence is nothing more than to partake in the worship of the Sun God, for the Sun is just a Beam of Light. Worshiping a Beam of Light is to worship an Illusion.

Hi Dee Thanks for stopping by. Always great to hear from you my friend. And thanks for the hug. That's always so nice to receive one of them. Doing good here and hoping that you and your beautiful family are doing great also. And best wishes to you also for a spooky and safe Halloween.

Hey Ian thanks again for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. You may be right about all this 3 d world of ours but at the moment its what I "see" each day so until I reach that state of Eternal Wisdom you speak of I will continue to express as much unconditional love as I possibly can. Whether this is only an illusion or not I cannot really say. But even if its only a "dream" all I can do is stand naked to the world and just "let it be". Thanks again for your thoughts and I wish the very best for you and yours.

Always a pleasure to read your blog my friend.

Now could you explain to me what LOVE is?

For LOVE is an arbitrary concept with no basis in reality or truth. Love is completely undefinable!

Wish I could explain what love is Ian. But as it stands I can only offer my perception of what it is. I sure don't claim to have any answers to any of the questions I hear. Everything I "see or feel" in this world is open to different meanings for different folks. I guess for me to try and describe what I feel love is would be to say it's that warm fuzzy feeling I get every time I see the face of a family member or friend. Every one will have their own meaning for what love is and even if I can't agree with them I can only accept them and say that they may be right. As always the best to you and yours always. Thanks for the visit.
