qualities the Creator exemplified when He came
out of the invisible and appeared in the person we know as Emmanuel.
And, He is love:.1John
Never get upset about those
who may be talking about you 'behind your back'. What others may think
of you is none of your business and what you may think of others is none
of their business. Staying away from gossip and criticism helps to keep
69:1-4; 109:2-5. What is
way that could be used, if for example you have to be around a person
who dislikes or even hates you or is perhaps a particularly obnoxious
person who may be bothering you, causing you to fret,
a person you have a hard time liking, an obstreperous
coworker, someone who persecutes you, a bully,
etc. or perhaps you need grace and favor in the eyes of another or others?
peace in all your relationships.
Those who are like this are
dying inside due to perhaps a lifetime so far, of desperately
needing recognition and love. Don't present yourself objectionably
as rejecting another. How you show up in the world matters. Keep another
on your side by not returning to him or her what they are being like. Draw
them in somehow, perhaps with questions of interest about the negative
ways they are saying. Or ask one
of those in the invisible realm to help you.
For example, one may accost
you, being upset with something you said that turned him or her down in
some way, something where he or she felt you were putting blame to them.
Groening said that every human being at their
core is good and divine,
even though at times, because of lacking spiritual strength, they take
in evil invective
thoughts and give them out in words and/or actions out of their low
consciousness thinking, causing dissension.
Have an attitude of wanting always to live from the best heart that you
can. Is the way you are, good for you and for others?
Have the attitude as exemplified
in this little story.
Have that same attitude and show it in your manner and in your words as
it helps to turn an enemy into a friend. Why would you ever want it to
be any different?.Matthew
5:44 "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse
you, do good to them that hate you and pray for them which despitefully
use you and persecute you."
Agree with something true
you can find in whatever negative situation you have ended up in:.Matthew
5:25 "Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with
Situation: someone cuts in
front of you when driving; he stops so you can't drive on; you get out
of your vehicle and he does the same; a breeding ground for conflict: You
say to him "Are you ok? Do you need help? Did you have the beginning of
a heart attack and had to quickly stop trying to get over to the curb?"
He says "You're an idiot, I was trying to turn at the next corner and had
my turn signal on and you just sped up so I couldn't get into the lane
to turn." You say "You know, I sped up so I could make the next light,
not to cut you off." "Well your still an idiot and need to learn how to
drive." "Well you're right. I've been called an idiot before when I've
been wrong and I'm still not a perfect driver all the time. Sorry for upsetting
you and causing you to miss your turn."
Situation: someone asks you
for money, maybe some bum and maybe for a couple of bucks. Have a budget
for such things:.Deuteronomy
17:17 "...neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold."
5:42 "Give to him that asks you and from him that would borrow of you
turn not you away.".Always,
if you can, help. Do only good
It's good to see others'
points of view. It's not good to allow those points of view to negatively
"What about their point of
view? When you become aware
seeing things from another point of view, you become aware of the processes
and thinking and you'll be able to enter the
structure of control and reality."....Grigori
with others. Those who you may have inner resistance toward, need your
love sent to them. We are all
connected as has been proven and they will be affected by what reaches
their heart from their soul,
sent to them by you through the invisible but very real spiritual waves,
to their conscious mind.
Always look at yourself first,
as all you encounter in life is a mirror of the real you, your subconscious
as it is in its present state. Your relationships are a mirror of what
is really you. And you can change the way others are around you by love.(how?
and with great effectiveness).and
Know this first. We project
onto others those things that we can't stand in ourselves, such as, if
you were at heart approaching others with dislike and anger, holding them
in disfavor for no reason or because of small annoyances.(he
cut me off in traffic, obviously on purpose).
Know also that others can only see you within the context
of their estimation
of you and to the degree
of their level of consciousness. For example some with higher levels of
consciousness would have a more favorable opinion of you than those at
lower levels. Taking responsibility provides amazing results when we take
action on that which we have just taken responsibility for. Take responsibility
love others no matter what:.Matthew
5:44. Try as best you can to see the other person separate from what
you may not like about them, that is, focus on the person, not on what
you see that you don't like.
One way to correct negatives
within us is to do what ancient Esther did:.Esther
Others have to recognize
the best part of them in you; they can only relate to what it is that is
in them which they see in you. In this way you are a light:.Acts
2:3 "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness
of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.".This
is what we are all looking for in another. This is how to be liked and
this is why we all need intuition.
You allow another to rob
you of any good state of mind you may have by making that peaceful happy
state dependent upon someone else. That is, if they are unhappy, it affects
you negatively. With this dependency, you'll never be truly happy. Life
is for you to manage well your being. Change the way you may have
another's behavior, realizing it's a reflection of what is in your own
subconscious. When you realize this, you can see your mindset being that
of negatives you recognize in others and then do something about it. You
it in your quiet time.
Get to know yourself,
your dark side,
meditation. Stop running away from yourself to somewhere else in your
mind. The way to love others is to love yourself. When you love yourself,
you need nothing from others, but are open to share in any love they may
have for you and vice
When you see in others those
things you do not like, they are the things in you that are striking a
cord in you. This is because we are all one at the

to yourself "I love you!". Why?

as most of us today. David's words in these Psalms:.Psalms
109:3-5 "They compassed me about also with words of hatred and fought
against me without a cause. For my love they are my adversaries, but I
give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good and hatred
for my love."
38:10-17 "My heart pants, my strength fails me. As for the light of
mine eyes, it also is gone from me. My lovers and my friends stand aloof
from my sore and my kinsmen stand afar off. They also that seek after my
life lay snares for me. And they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things
and imagine deceits all the day long. But I, as a deaf man, heard not and
I was as a dumb man that opens not his mouth. Thus I was as a man that
hears not and in whose mouth are no reproofs. For in you, O LORD, do I
hope. You will hear.(original
for 'thou wilt hear' is just 'answer'),
O Lord my God. For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice
over me. When my foot slips, they magnify themselves against me. For I
am ready to halt and my sorrow is continually before me."
And in a prophecy about Emmanuel:.Isaiah
53:7 "He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his
mouth. He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before her
shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth."
What is real peace for the
peace is not just the absence of war, but the absence of all suffering,
all negativity", "With meditation
the black cloud of negativity dissolves."....David

Those who may be difficult
to like, much
less love, have become that way due to circumstances and mindsets born
of confusion, perhaps abuse, neglect, mentally, spiritually and/or physically,
No matter how bad a person may appear, think of it as the best they are
able to be with you at any time you may encounter them.
You could think of such people
like this: That they were once a little boy or girl, that they must have
had some bad things occur to them to make them the way they now are.(presuming,
of course, that you have done nothing to cause them to react badly:.Philippians

people are really saying 'no one loves
me and I hate it'. By being that way, obnoxious individuals receive
all of us need and crave.
Being very kind and showing
care and concern, even as
clumsily as you can, may not have an immediate effect. But consider,
who else is going to treat them that way? Not many. Probably, not any.
Most will repulse
Consider the wacky
world we live in that we must all deal with. We have the sociologists on
the one hand telling us that it's important to give and receive hugs daily.
And the feminists on the other hand saying "if you touch me, I'll charge
you with sexual harassment".
All of us have been affected by confusion in society such as this. Life
at the ego level is hypocritical
and just plain nuts.
Your concern for this obnoxious
individual may not make a difference for years. But someday in the future,
that individual will look back and say to him/her self, that "there was
a person who really cared, a person who saw something in me and liked it
and oh how badly I mistreated him/her".
People do change.

and crooks do change. Not all of course, but some do. Why not all? There
can be no change unless one has unselfish vision for the future:.Proverbs

of us is responsible for that. Change can be effortless once we know

Maybe more would
want to change if we treated them with some love and concern and showed
some hopefulness toward them rather than rejection and took a bit of time
to urge them to go onward in their lives, rather than shove them away so
that we are free to live out our selfish wants.
What a wonderful feeling
to know that you have had a part in helping a person become a better individual.
You may never see it. The person may have long moved on from you. But you
be rewarded for your actions of love and concern and helpfulness:.Daniel
12:3. Pray for others, even if you see no
results. When you plant a seed, you may see not results for weeks, then

a gospel of peace:.Ephesians
6:15. And we should be at work in our lives ensuring that as much peace
as possible occurs:.Romans

Lack of peace comes from

So just what
did Emmanuel mean when He said that about peace and bringing a sword?.Matthew
10:34 "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth. I came not
to send peace, but a sword."
If peace comes from God,
lack of peace has to do with the self's involvement in life.
If the Creator gave selfish
people peace in life so that they were completely and constantly.content,
what need would there be to continue on the spiritual pathway? They may
have no desire to

only one polarity?

time. The real
self of you fades into the background of living during our busy daily
lives. When we meditate, it's there. It's from this real self that balance
occurs and we can then move forward in life, as the hindrances
of experiences in the world melt away.
We have our
soul nature which whispers to us hundreds
of times a day, but we allow it to be so quickly overridden
with what we have become more comfortable with and those things are ego
concerns, the things we've always had our minds on. We humans just
must learn to respond to God who talks to us through
feelings and through thoughts that well
up in the mind.
The ego concerns are the
things the beings of the dark side watch for. It's a beacon
for them to come and influence those not of a higher consciousness:.1Thessalonians
5:5,6 "You are all the children of light and the children of the day.
We are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as
do others, but let us watch and be sober." 1Peter
5:8 "Be sober, be vigilant.(*),
because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking
whom he may devour.".1Peter
come to one's mind.(how,
it can be determined if one is fit to move on in truth, becoming part of
the great invisible kingdom of Christ. Prompts are for awakening a person
to the reality of his being:.2Timothy
This is so because God
never overrides anyone's mindset,
but waits for him to 'open the gate':.Revelation
3:20 "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hears my voice
and opens the door, I will come in to him and will sup
with him and he with me." Matthew
13:18-23 "Hear you therefore the parable of the sower. When any one
hears the word of the kingdom and comprehends it not, then comes the wicked
one and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which
received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony
places, the same is he that hears the word and anon
with joy receives it, yet has he not root in himself.(not
really sure God is actually him in expression:.Romans
1:16), but endures for a while,
for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, by and
by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that
hears the word and the care of this world and the deceitfulness of riches,
choke the word and he becomes unfruitful. But he that received seed into
the good ground is he that hears the word and understands it; which also
fruit and brings forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."
Are we like Pharaoh
of ancient Egypt in the time of the Israelites ready to leave Egypt, where
he constantly discounted what he was hearing, seeing and experiencing?.Exodus
14:4. As is easily noticed, ego actions are just nuts!:.Exodus
8:19 "Then the magicians said
unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God and Pharaoh's heart was hardened
and he hearkened not unto them; just as the LORD had said."
The story and the miracles.(Exodus
7:7-25; 8:1-32; 9:1-35;
as well as the amazing pillar of cloud and of fire:.Exodus
"The struggle of the spirit
for its true place in the world, as well as the struggle of your soul for
personification of the Creator, develop your intellect and mind control."....Grigori
Grabovoi. The world is a
stage for this.
We are here to fully function
as creators and to do this, it's important to become as the Creator is;
not overriding our personalities, not being a clone,
but functioning with the
same high consciousness character, which allows the Creator-God to
express an individuality of His presence that you are here to express as
you grow in comprehension of higher consciousness. In this way we are the
Creator's expressive personality:.Isaiah
One needs to be alert
to each thought that comes to mind and consider what it is that should
be done with each thought. This is making the best of the guidance that
comes to you. Difference between thoughts can be noticed when the overall
principle of love is considered. Love includes many things. Learn
them if you want life to be better for all.
from our dark side when we look at it and acknowledge it. It dissipates
then. If we shove it into hiding, it just becomes more of a problem.
We see how horrible something
is and decide to want never to be like that and to avoid it, etc. We are
here to think and learn from the contrasts we become aware of. We know
the good because we can see the difference when comparing the opposite.
We appreciate the sunshiny still and gentle breeze days so much more after
a long bout of
cold cloudy 'angry' weather. Angry
people bring angry weather because all in the universe
is connected. Angry weather is due to collisions
in the atmosphere
caused by people trapped in a nightmare of not being in charge of themselves
and so at war with themselves. Collisions in life are caused.similarly.
As Deepak said."The
storm we run from never passes."
We have negative and positive.(example),
high and low, fast and slow, acid and alkaline, life and death, hunger
and fullness, male and female, light and dark, up and down, good and evil,
which is basically under the overview of pain and pleasure; we experience
joy and sadness, we see the Sun giving light, it's hot, moon receiving
and reflecting light, it's cold, fire and water, warm and cold-blooded
animals and on and on.
The Creator uses contrasts
too. Consider the
old and new covenants.being
Thank God that He is a Creator
of balance. What if He was not? What if He set the weather patterns up
so results would be just snow and snow, day after day, say for 10 months
of the year? After shoveling for a few weeks and seeing no end in sight
to the continually falling snow, you would have to drastically change your
You may move to where there
was no snow, but what if also it was just so hot that it was dangerous
to go outdoors?
Thank Him for what he has
designed; that life for the most part is relatively comfortable, though
we often complain about inconveniences that seem like big negatives. We
just will never get any big negatives from God.
The tough part of life often
comes from government regimes,
regimes which subjugate
people in various
and subtle ways,
mostly controlling populaces by controlling money in its various forms.
But the Creator is in control of all, has set it all up for his 'human
processing factory', to bring
all to get to
know Him, but each individually in a way which He determines.
Each day has enough evil
in it to cause us to move forward:.Matthew
6:34. But for some it's
One reason we see the pendulum
swinging back and forth in this seemingly endless and often trial filled
and frustrating search for what works, what works to get love, what works
to acquire wealth, security, stable relationships and
other things we all want, is because we
lack all we need to effectively fashion our individual minds so life
becomes a joy in all areas.
