There I’ll meet God

I’m planning
One day I’ll have
A perfect day-off
In the mountains
Where creeks meet
And ancient rocks are
Millions of green leaves
Unite in their differences
Mild breeze touches
The feathers of the songbirds
And the scent of the flowers
In a nearby meadow
Fills my nostrils
And cleans my lungs

I’m planning
My day-off there
And the Earth will resonate
Through my bare feet
I will feel life
As I breathe in and out

There I’ll meet God

Love nature and love people

You should know how to love nature and love people. You should know that those who cannot love people or love nature cannot love God. Because all things of creation are symbols for God and because people are substantial beings, those who know how to love all things of creation and people will come to love God.

You should always love nature. You should love nature and love people. You should love people of all five colours in the human race. Would God say, “Oh, I like only white people”? Then everyone would have to wear only white clothes. All white people would have to wear only white clothes, and throw away all their coloured clothes. Why would you wear black clothes or coloured clothes? That would be a contradiction.

Even all the elements and the smallest creatures go toward the way of love. They are moving toward being the cells of humankind that can directly contact the love that is one with God. For this reason, we should sacrifice ourselves for the sake of love. We should invest ourselves.

Since there is a tradition of pouring out one’s life and possessions in their entirety, lower entities seek to give their whole being for the sake of higher entities. This is not Darwin’s Theory of Evolution but a theory of absorption based on love. The question is how the value of one of the smallest creatures increases as it becomes material to be used in creating the next higher level of value.

We should feel that all creatures of God are objects of our love. We should be people who can love, and be loved by, even the smallest forms of life, not to mention human beings, as well as everything visible and invisible in heaven. When a bird calls, “Chirp, chirp, chirp” in the morning, instead of saying, “You pesky sparrow, I am trying to sleep late. Why are you chirping?!” say, “Oh, thank you. You came to wake me up. Ha ha, you are telling me that an important guest is coming to see me.” The outlook is different. This is a great thing.

Centered on such people, a myriad of angels in heaven form a subject realm of harmony where they can have give and take with people, as butterflies and bees do with flowers. When that happens, a flowery garden of harmony will surely appear in which God rejoices, people rejoice, angels rejoice and all things are immersed in love. A spring party will then begin.

God created the angelic world at the same time that He created the human world. What kind of world is the angelic world? Only when human beings appear with beauty and fragrance – like blossoms that exist for the sake of bearing one fruit – will the nest of love finally be prepared. Hence, all life starts from there, and all beings that have life can harmonize starting from there. Human beings make this harmony possible.

Diamond Heart

My heart makes a diamond change

Your gold is true my one seemed fake

Till the day I finally found you

In an alley of a shadowed time

 

A voice struck into me

You would be my Saviour

And from that moment on

I know where I belong

 

How amazing you are

I tend to forget

When I prefer my scars

Over your love

 

It is a journey

I’d never known I would take

It is an awakening

A continuous rebirth

 

As channel of Light

People can see me sometimes

But what I would worth

Without Earth

 

All the symphonies

Of words and sounds

I have ever created

Reflect a bit of You

 

A lot of You

Let go of the past

How many time has Heavenly Parent thought to let go of the past?

Though He is omnipotent, He is the most vulnerable in the realm of love – and the Ideal was corrputed, long ago.

So many believes nowadays, there must have been some kind of flaw in the Creation, or it is a mere concept never to reach. Some even says, the balance requires bad, too…

Looking at the Nature, the real harmony, the structures and flows behind every movement, relationship, connection we can see the patterns. One of the most fundamental is to live for the higher purpose, for the unity of the two the one forgets about oneself and through this volunteer way, living for the sake of others, the one will gain even more what he or she gave at first. If we have no expectations to receive anything in return, since we realize we can only complete ourselves when we act for someone else with the right mindset and attitude, we will be Blessed by Heavenly Parent, the Nature and the people aorund.

Even if we can not see the development directly, all the good deeds will come back to us in a higher, more mature level changing and altering our future for the better. No good deeds will ever be forgotten.

As the tree protects the bush from the heat, the bush protects the tree with keeping more water in the soil. And together they can offer a shelter to several different lifeforms, who fertilize the area to let the tree and the bush be more complete.

This can be applied in human relationships, too. It should be applied.

Can God, our eternal Heavenly Parent forget He was betrayed, He is being called in names, He has been ridiculed and basically kicked out from the life of His supposed to be children?

No, He can’t.

He is the one with the greatest heart and mind, He is the one to suffer the most…

…but He also wishes to be happy, the happiest in the world, since He is the most capable to do that, too.

He forgives. He will never forget since He has the greatest memory in the Universe.

He will forgive since He has the greatest ability to do that. Even if He has been betrayed and made suffer for thousands, tens of thousands of years, He will forgive in a moment and be the most joyous when any of us say: Sorry, I was wrong. Many things I made were wrong, I realize now, and so many I can’t even think of, I most probably failed. I’m sorry. I will do better, I will grow, with Your guidance and help. You have always supported me and my family, despite all the failures You have never left. Please, stay and witness how I will become a better person who can manifest the core of the Universe, the patterns You show me in the living study book called Nature. I will be as great as I meant to be, beyond my own concepts and beliefs. You’ve trusted me, now I will trust You. Let me grow, and please, help me in that. If there is pain on the path, please, give me comfort, when there is happiness let me share my joy with You! Let me surprise You to become a fully grown, mature person, a responsible, caring one, who can and will inherit Your heart, Father! Come with me in this journey, let’s start and re-start together, as long as it takes, I will never let You go! I will let the past go, but not You! Stay, please stay and be the meaning of my everydays! Protect my children and their future and let me be your instrument in that! I can be the masterplan, for You and for the people in the world, for the whole Creation. I trust You, so I can trust this will work. Join me Father in the light, join my Father in the night! And if I fail, I will stand up again and find a better way. I will persevere. I will persevere, because of You, Father. You are my Father! You are my Father!

 

This way God, our Heavenly Parent will let the past go and we will be able to do so, too.

Say the prayer loud, maybe more than once.

He is there. Waiting for you, waiting for us.

Let’s go to Him!

Don’t worry, my child

Don’t worry, my child
don’t you worry
I’m standing right next to you
I’m with you

You may think the world is over
you might feel this way
but even if it is so
I’ll be with you

The broken sadness in you
will pass away
complete happiness will rise
with the morrow

Loneliness and Isolation
the two loyal friends
Abundant Grace
will better suit to you

Can you accept, my child
the love I’m giving you
Can I give you more
to heal you by tomorrow

I’m worried my child,
I’m worried for you
I’d like to find a way
a better way to and for you

But you shan’t worry
if you open up
just a little bit more
let me embrace you

You may think I’m too old
and you are independent
to be so close friends
partners for life

I’m here any case
trying to catch you
when you fail
and when you fly

Don’t worry, my child
the troubles are for the yesterday
you can rest now
I’ll protect you for eternity

I’m here with you

I’m here with you
I’m here in the breeze
I’m here in the sunbeams
I’m here in the creek
I’m here in the cliffs
I’m here in the grass
I’m here in the trees
I’m here in the fragrance
I’m here in the colours
I’m here in the distance
I’m here next to you
I’m in your heart, too

Awake little bird

Awake little bird
awake little thing
look up and see
the Sun is shining
grassblades around
are holding dew
for you

Awake little bird
awake little thing
here is the morning
gentle breeze
is waiting
to fly to the sky
with you

Awake little bird
awake little thing
children are playing
laughing around
Bless them today
with your
prayerful song

Don’t say

Don’t say you cannot see the light of your love
Don’t say

Don’t say you cannot feel the love of your life
Don’t say

Don’t say you cannot climb a mountain because it’s high
Don’t say

Don’t say you cannot grow in your heart
Don’t say

 

Don’t say you have lost all your power
Don’t say

Don’t say you have always been cornered
Don’t say

Don’t say you have nobody else
Don’t say

Don’t say you have only anguish
Don’t say

 

Don’t say you are still hesitating
Don’t say

Don’t say you are just waiting
Don’t say

Don’t say you are not worthy
Don’t say

Don’t say you are not ready
Don’t say

 

You are meant to be the child of God.

God Provides

So often we feel

betrayed

cheated and abandoned

lonely as the Moon

who travels alone

and we have anger

blaming, discourage

feeling the darkside

of every bit of the sunshine.

 

Yet, God provides

light, air and water

ground to stand on

wind to change

rain to cleanse

people to guide

hardships to measure your growth

joy to feel contentment

dreams to have something to hope

God provides, God provides.

Self-denial and No-self

Self-denial is necessary to overcome the hindrances of egoism, pride, and selfish desires which obscure the true nature within. The person who is always concerned with himself or herself, is trapped in “the ego-cage of ‘I’, ‘me’ and ‘mine.'” Consequently, he can neither realize his own true self nor relate to Ultimate Reality. From a Hindu perspective, denying “I,” “me,” and “mine” is in fact a way to find the true “I” that is transcendent and one with Reality. In the Western perspective it is a way to recover the true self, which is loving and compassionate, having been created in the image of God. Both perspectives affirm the paradox that “he who loves his life loses it, and he who hate shis life will keep it.”

Buddhism also teaches that the path to the religious goal requires one to deny the self and all egoistic grasping. But it goes further, grounding the practice of self-denial on the ontological statement that any form of a self is unreal. Buddhism is most sensitive to the insight that self-denial, when done for the purpose of seeking unity with an Absolute Self or God, can become subtly perverted into a form of pride and self-affirmation. Total self-denial should therefore dispense even with the goal of a transcendent Self. There is no self, either on Earth or in Heaven; all forms are transient, subject to birth and death.
