Inherit Jesus’ Tradition

If we desire the Blessing, we should concentrate first on how to live solely for God’s will. When Jesus prayed in Gethsemane, he prayed that not his own will but God’s will be done. He did not choose the path of the cross because of his own will. Unless, like Jesus, you are confident of being able to overcome the problems of life and death, you cannot welcome or walk the path of restoration. Are you confident enough to dedicate your life for God’s will? If you take this course, you should know you cannot go alone; you must able to relate to all people, and be able to console those who are going to follow you on this path.

Are you really ready to sacrifice your life! You cannot think, “I am a young girl with a beautiful face; I can be welcomed anywhere I go, and I have no particular defects. A girl like myself cannot do sacrificial work.” Or, “I am a man with a great physical body and handsome appearance, with a great family. Whatever I want I can get very easily, So, as such a wonderful man, I cannot do such rigorous sacrificial work.” What’s more, you should not be bitter about walking a sacrificial path.

When Jesus was shouldering the cross, he could have deplored his situation, saying, “I should not have to do this kind of thing. I have not yet married, even though I am a 33 year old man. My mission and my value have not yet been realized.” But Jesus could not think that way. Death was not a problem for him; he was ready to sacrifice his life, and the weight of the cross that he was shouldering could not deter him. Although he fell down physically, he didn’t waver internally, because of his great stamina. No other man in history has ever had such a strong determination connected with God, and because of Jesus’ great strength, human history took a new direction. This became God’s new starting point on earth.

Two thousand years have passed since that time, but the spirit of Jesus has not passed away. Instead, it has been inherited by millions of people. How happy we can be today – to inherit such an important mission – the tradition of Jesus! Therefore, it doesn’t matter if we lose our lives. We should cry out in the darkness of death and shatter that darkness by the light of God’s heart. We should make that light shine throughout all the world. We must become that kind of man or woman. This is the challenge. Originally, the fall of man meant death; salvation means the overcoming of death. If we are determined to be saved, we should be willing to be bold. If we succeed, the world will head in a new direction. We should be excited! Are you confident that you can overcome the problems of life and death? I have faced issues of life and death many, many times – hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of times. Although I may face suffering and pain, although my legs may be cut off and my eyes extracted, and even if I’m beheaded, I am still strongly determined to complete that course I started. My conviction is absolute.

Children of God

Everyone moved by the Spirit is a son of God. The spirit you received
is not the spirit of slaves bringing fear into your lives again; it is the spirit of
sons, and it makes us cry out, “Abba, Father!” The Spirit himself and our spirit
bear united witness that we are children of God. And if we are children we
are heirs as well: heirs of God and coheirs with Christ, sharing his sufferings
so as to share his glory.

Inherit Jesus’ Tradition

As I Can See

If we desire the Blessing, we should concentrate first on how to live solely for God’s will. When Jesus prayed in Gethsemane, he prayed that not his own will but God’s will be done. He did not choose the path of the cross because of his own will.

Mirror of Nowhere

Lights are passing by. A city of emptiness shines in the dark of humanity, hiding the vanity of selfish desires and purposeless lives. There is no face in the window I’m looking through. Ahead the mirrors, facing towards each other, reflecting the endless in mighty blur. Numbers sign the seats, some are empty, most are full, which is my number? Am I labelled again? Or still I just don’t know who am I? For long, I had known myself as an alien, a definite extra-terrestrial, an abandoned boy, a body burdened being, a mixture of man and women, a part of God, embodiment all the desires and falsity of all the others’ hopes. Who am I? I was asked, again tonight. I am asked, right now, it is me or someone who claims to be a true self of mine, who am I?

Seeking the holy, seeking the grail, the abundant and the vain, I’ve been in so many places, yet, have I stepped at all to the right direction?

Master of words, lyrics, composer of soul, artist of all, still immature, or a disciple of the real ancestors? Sometimes I feel yes, sometimes I fell, yes. What is true more? I must have been reborn, maybe a couple of times, there are lives I remember, like a vision, like a movie been seen long while ago, memories of things I don’t own.

I’ve never known my hometown.  The address of my heart was never scribed, not then, maybe nowadays. As I see the world around, as I can see more and more, understand, feel, sense, as my tongue licks the salt of the life from the skin of abundant grace, the sweetness of the fractal of joy, I turn to be self-aware, a cognitive, sensitive… who? Am I really the ancestor of my descendants? Will they really inherit any blessings from my great deeds, great ones in the eyes of the Absolute God? Am I really the son of my Father?

I could say yes, I now the value of my good deeds, or at least I suppose, although, were there enough? Could I have done more, better, faster? Sure. There is no doubt in the amount of wasted opportunities and times, as I was living other lives, I’d rather change everything back, different, wiser, heartistic… but I can’t. It goes one way, I only can evaluate and promise even I couldn’t fully trust in myself in those other lives… I am here now. I can be a living offering; I can be myself as a newly born, grown, mature, existing, breathing real being. I can do it, actually, I know it.

Should be faster, better, more mature and a true reflection of the core of God’s Heart. Sounds exaggerating, it isn’t. All of us can do, each and every one of us. Even you and me, all of us. Though we were born in the land of abandoned true love, we can come to life, together, holding each other’s hands, embracing the fallen, uplifting the grieving, comforting the miserable, voluntarily giving, loving, sacrificing, even going to the bottom of the hell to change a place, liberating and living again, maybe first time ever in the history of humanity.

As God, our Heavenly Parent is eternal, unchanging, we must be like Him. Our stubborn will must be to inherit his long-cherished wish, and to manifest it. So we can be the true sons and daughters, the real ancestors of our descendants, so they can listen to our stories on and on, and for thousands of years this will be the eternal gospel, the gospel of love and true, filial heart and character.

Who am I, I’m not always sure, who I want to be, it is clear, again.

Looking at the mirrors ahead, I can see the brightness of heart and ideal life in an ideal world. A vision, can be manifested, by us, by me, too.  Mirror of Nowhere is a place to create as the ideal to call hometown, homeland.

We all will return where we originally should have been from.

Heading

We are coming through, we are going through, we are passing by.

Since the state we are not even being born, a sensation of internal and faraway, unknown galaxy has been in our cells, partially matured mindset.

Would anyone leave an ideal place, where there are comfort, feeling of safety, protection and care? Voluntarily surely wouldn’t. What is this force then, making us to do so? It is life what longs for us to live, it is love makes us to die and resurrect in another form of existence.

Everything is in a circular motion, a vibration, a resonation. Unless we are united we cannot go forward, we cannot pass anything on in an eternal sense. Land of God, land of peace, land of love, land of re-occurrence, land of trust, land of freedom – all are in one place, called unity.

My mind is divided, body leads soul, but it is impossible and in vain thinking of decreasing the hunger for love and eternity ever can be achieved by pursuing wealth and prosperity for my own sake. What is my level? Looking after myself? Taking care of my family? Or feeling to be responsible for the final, forever lasting change of the world around?

Our God is an awesome God.

He is not behind in the enmity, national, racial, cast, borders; He does not recognize any man-made boundaries and valleys of distrust, selfishness, arrogance, division.

The free will what was not meant to be used by immature traitors, was meant for the perfected humans, the beautiful, filial sons and daughters of God, our Heavenly Parent. Saying sorry, doing better is never enough. Up until everyone wants to build his or her own kingdom in the same land of family, country, world, there will be no real freedom and liberation; for that we need the unchanging, absolute value: the viewpoint of God. Whenever we inherit its omnipresent truth, our own self will suffocate us as it dies away letting the bud of True, Absolute Love grow what we can nurture with righteous life and deeds with and for each other.

Although, sometimes our head is too big to be born, as we want to stay in the old way, there is still hope, still we can make the difference what has never really happened before, we can grow and mature, it is not a dream or just the very one what can be manifested by our perseverance and heartistic attitude.

A womb is a universe, a perfect place for a long, seemingly eternal time.

An earthly life is a complex universe, a perfect place meant to be, depending on us.

A spiritual life is an eternal universe, our constant place what expands as our hearts grow.

We never die if we go through a resurrection; we are reborn if we really want to. And helping each other on the way we’ll never end up lonely, sick, miserable, hated; we’ll be praised and remembered as real sons and daughters of God, our Heavenly Parent.

 

Be Blessed and Be Blessings to Others!
