SMM Quotes – 237

“It is logical to say that since God is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal, the love partner God is seeking should also be absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal. But the key point we have to remember is that when God created this universe, He used an absolute standard by having absolute faith, love and obedience in His creation. He applied absolute faith when he started Creation, absolute love; on that foundation He created His creation; not below. The standard God established for His creation was absolute faith, love and obedience. When God created humankind God applied absolute faith, and also gave His absolute love, also in order to raise and grow them God practised absolute obedience. Even when it comes to marriage between husband and wife, when there is absolute faith between husband and wife, natural love flows between them.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Can God Really Heal Us?

Common belief

God will save and heal

Us in time of needs

Yet nobody knows

Why He would do that

When we are not there

Where we should be

This time or ever

We have been blaming

Him and each other

For everything in disorder

Life

Health

Fortune

Lack of clarity

Ignorance is bliss

Imperfect hide and seek

Why would God heal us

We are not machines to be fixed

We are sons and daughers

Who need to grow

Mature and prosper

Embrace who is our Father

Whose characteristics we shall reflect

Rebirth is needed

As I was combing through the words, wisdoms and teachings this short line enlightened me: Rebirth is needed.

 

How true.

Often forgotten.

 

And the most unusual part? You need to die first, voluntarily.

 

After the foggy days, you know, when the painkillers shred off, everything is sharper yet pale. Thinking back, there were days with daydream-fevers, that state, when everything has its place while you are in and makes completely no sense when you are looking back at it.

Which one is real?

When everything works despite struggles or when nothing seems to be working, feels cold, a bit cruel as you are unwanted, people are uninterested in you, yet, it is said that is reality, that is life.

And the sad part: you feel it is true somewhere.

And you are fighting against yourself, hiding this realization, escaping into mind palaces.

But each escaping is a failure.

You always need to be able to transform any unpleasant circumstances into a more ideal one, creating Heaven with your thoughts, words and actions.

It doesn’t feel right and it is completely nonsense.

Still, the only way to create a better world if you make it. Nobody else will make it for you or to the people you care, love.

 

I have always been lack of bright sense when it came to take care of myself.

At all.

Completely.

 

And now, it’s like left out words waiting after anything I write or think, a predetermined ending.

So, my free will is among the boundaries I’d involuntarily made?

 

God couldn’t have given me my destiny for sure, if I weren’t anywhere near to become a co-creator in life!

 

There is this significant difference with ageing: awareness can be pre-occupied with mindless things and the numbness; the greatest fear of all: loosing me, myself and I. For sure, I am my own flesh, but I am more. Even if science lacks the equipments to measure, I do have a soul, I do have love in me.

 

I do have God in me.

 

At least, there is a place where He had temporary shelter to dwell, at least in a tiny part.

 

And I know, fatal sicknesses are not by Him, but it is scary and hard.

What if?

The what ifs are the scariest and the hardest.

 

I do lead a good life, I am a good person. Yet, I have so many mistakes, I have accidentally wronged others and I had to realize, somewhere I am also vain.

What if my failures…

 

Just get back to life, just get back to help others, especially if they don’t know it, and gain back love to do more.

The foggy days are over.

The rest will be done, either way.

(from my upcoming book: Good is Still Within)

All the anger and resentments

As I Can See

Isn’t it strange, when you do your best to love the people closer to you and farther away, and choose to change yourself, surrender your own desires hoping it will bring a brighter day for the world around, suddenly you are trembled upon, torn apart by careless words and others’ selfish deeds, shaking all your beliefs and intentions?

It’s not righteous and you feel it.
It’s destructive, you know it in your bone-marrow.
It’s a poison and you feel you are suffocating.
It’s a trap and you can’t seem to find the end of the maze.

Though emotions should be guided by intellect, it is just the whole situation which makes you powerless. And you come to the point you don’t want to do this any more. You’ve tried your best, your utmost effort, risked everything just for others and the ideal – but the excruciating pain is too much…

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

Blessing Thoughts – 2

Though you may feel you’ve lost the battle and you may feel yourself paralysed and weak and in fear, there is still endless hope for you to recover despite all the odds and what the world says. This hope is from God, our Heavenly Parent, as He can see your true characteristics, the growing seed of absolute love in you, your unique ability to express truth, make other’s life joyous, immersing yourself in it without holding anything back.

God knows, who you are and what you are capable of. That’s why He loves you as your true deeds re-create this world towards the ideal.

 

Blessings!

Had my tomb was laid in the ground today

Had my tomb was laid in the ground today
What words would be engraved under the name
For long I’d thought teacher, parent and owner
From the kind of true, meek, noble and honest
Seeing my wrongs, failures and flaws
I doubt it could ever be so
Who am I to think I can change
the world when I am in vain
Every so often I lose
Can’t seem to stay on the trail
Though the angels and good saints
Keep coming back for me
How long would I persevere
Chasing the only true dream
Shaken, with a shivering soul
Am I worthy to carry it on

Looking through the window
Seeing my reflection
I’m just wondering whether
it will bring tomorrow

Had my tomb was laid in the ground today
What words would be engraved under the name

All the anger and resentments

Isn’t it strange, when you do your best to love the people closer to you and farther away, and choose to change yourself, surrender your own desires hoping it will bring a brighter day for the world around, suddenly you are trembled upon, torn apart by careless words and others’ selfish deeds, shaking all your beliefs and intentions?

It’s not righteous and you feel it.
It’s destructive, you know it in your bone-marrow.
It’s a poison and you feel you are suffocating.
It’s a trap and you can’t seem to find the end of the maze.

Though emotions should be guided by intellect, it is just the whole situation which makes you powerless. And you come to the point you don’t want to do this any more. You’ve tried your best, your utmost effort, risked everything just for others and the ideal – but the excruciating pain is too much to bear, better to walk away and live without all this nonsense. After all, you are not the messiah…

This is the crossroad, where both sides, goodness and evil are watching you, not saying anything.
It is only up to you to recognize how Heavenly Parent has lived and how He acted throughout the human history, throughout your own life. It is also up to you to stay human of this world and era, embracing the ever changing values and ideas.

No one will judge you.
No one will tell you what to do.
No one will say where to go to.
No one will whisper you wisdoms.

If you have come so far, that means the answers are already in you.

And you can change all the angers and resentments into Blessings for others through sacrifice and care and compassion and love.
And you can also let yourself to be stuck in the mud of the broken hearts.

Everything is up to you.

If you have come so far, you already know the answers.

Everything is up to you.
