>God’s Love and The Long Struggle

>I- God is Love

God is love. Love is God.

To love God with all our hearts, we must love one another

In our faithfulness to love, we find our true selves.

The absence of love is perceived as hate, just as light is perceived as darkness.

The light of love is born anew, whenever we embrace our true existence.

Nothing pure can be twisted- yet eternal truths vanish from the sight of the blind.

Death is the end of one state and the birth of another, even if it cannot yet be seen. The lost caterpillar will yet emerge from his chrysalis.

II- The Long Struggle

A struggle is ever afoot in the human heart, as the powers of light and darkness vie for control there.

Darkness attempts to maximize it’s conquests in the sphere of time, for in the expanse of eternal life, of mythic time, it has already been defeated.

This struggle must needs be experienced and won by a conscious, moral choice. Even if the victory is assured, through love it must be chosen.

There are two sides to experiencing love- its light fulfillment and the heavy frustration when things don’t go our way.

Love is only the real experience we can have.

Sakura blossoms are like love- light and joyful, soon to fade away, yet ever to return.

Love as a thought is steady in its state. Love as an experience is dynamic, ever-changing.

By seeking the very best we can conceive, our noblest instincts, we find something far, far greater.

III- The Paths of Life

We live in a universe of many choices. We can think creative or destructive thoughts of the same things.

One branch in the path leads to life, the other to death. We commit ourselves, moment by moment, to either force.

When we follow our true desires, we chose love every time.

In the broad ways of the world, there are many paths of confusion, yet a narrow one of truth.

Salvation rescues us from the erring ways of the world, through the very grace of God’s eternal love.

The very journey of salvation is showered in the blessings of arrival.

God’s love is in the world, yet not of it.

Love follows the values of gentleness, long-suffering, compassion, grace. It may influence the worldly ways of profit, but it has quite different values.

IV- Revelation

Now we will reveal the truth: You are love, in as much as you are a dewdrop of creation.

You have the eternal powers to create whole worlds, deep inside you, just as does your true Father.

Universe upon universe, world upone world, we refine our abilities towards this glorious end.

To be co-partakers in creation and eventually creators ourselves, we find our way to our destiny.

This spiritual evolution, in the many schools of life, is apposite to any concept of power over others.

We see power for others, to transcend this selfish phase to one of total selflessness.

We give, as the tree supports the birds, as the suns support whole worlds, we too focus our love to give light to others.

This is the true path eternal, the path we glimpse and taste even now.

In The eternal present, now and forever.

Amen.

>A Prayer For Steadiness in Virtue

>In a world scarred by fear and indifference,
The joys of the moment seem passing follies.

We have to ask- where does the true reality
Begin and end?

Are our joys illusionary, or is that our sufferings?
Why oh why do bad things happen under the golden sun?

The answer, my friend, is undoubtedly simple:
Demonic influence- willing embraced by fools.

Nothing but good enters the world from God’s will,
To be twisted by the jealous, bitter will of Satan’s.

God’s power is omnipresent, yet asks for faith to act.
Satan’s dark will requires minions to follow.

If no-one, anywhere, would give aid to Satan,
His ability to act would be utterly curtailed.

Such is the way of a free-will universe,
Where we humans choose to worship God and find safety in Him.

All sin is consciously chosen,
However bizarre that might seen

Yet much evil is subconscious, habitual, ignorant.
Sin begets evil, makes it worse.

Virtue sets in habits of goodness, gentleness,
A passion for helping others.

Here is the key, for those who wish to be good-
Be virtuous, light and children of the clouds.

For then evil will stay far from you,
Along with the temptations to do such wickedness as it plots.

What bothers me the most is not suffering the ill will of others,
But myself falling into such worldly ways.

I know that angels and demons are all real, very real,
They influence the ways of men, even they see such spirits not.

We chose, yet we also follow the guidance of spirits,
Entrusted long ago with guarding this Earth from the mistakes of her children.

No spirit came here but by God’s will.
The evil ones rebelled, yet were somehow able to stay.

For a loving God finds it hard to summarily punish wrongdoers,
He wishes more for their repentance and thus grants them time.

III

Time, time; a breath in eternity.
So much can happen in this temporal realm.

How to think of, understand this great mystery?
I pray to you God, for this…

Keep me safe from the ways of the Babylon’s Whore
Keep my faith to you intact

Warn me before I slide to sinful temptations,
So I know better than to thwart your will.

Please forgive my many sins in though, word and deed,
Help me to be true to you.

Help our hearts, our thoughts to be pure and selfless
Help us always to do the greater good for all.

As it was, is now and ever shall be. Worlds without end,
Amen


>Nurturing

>How is it, to help a civilisation to evolve? Well, it is something like watching a flower grow. It gradually unfolds in ever-greater beauty. Seen quickly, this process is smooth and effortless; baring unforseen extremities of weather, it is inevitable. Civilisation and it’s development has a similar, smooth inevitability to it. Yet seen up close, and more slowly, it is the story of countless struggles, often in an unsure enviroment. Progress seems far from guaranteed- which is where faith comes in- faith that divine guidance and protection will render all the obsticals mere harmless distractions from the path to grand futures.
