“Instead of letting the media do it for us?” Apparently I had been looking at a “long hair make over”, it is food for thought though. Who really decides who you are? Is it society, deity, Facebook, Pinterest? Remember school days, about 8 years old when you really start who you are compared to who others are. Who was in your life about that time? Who were your caregivers? Were they there for you or were you sort of babysat, without any real engagement with the people you were a part of?
Seems TV, addictions of all forms…legal and not, as well as tradition or convention decide who we are and what we will be in any given moment. Are we trapped, ugly, fat, misunderstood, struggling, competing, hiding, trying? Louise L. Hay has done a lot of work to open the doors and show us that we are what we think. Along with this, comes the understanding that as we change what we think we may change what we are.
The gospel of Jesus Christ gives us an understanding of The Trinity, The Godhead, The Three in One. Do you believe this? Do you profess it? Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; this is what this claims we are. People have not understood this. They have separated themselves from God and felt themselves even to be at odds with Him. That is a bit odd isn’t it! No wonder those who leave the faith find themselves often with no choice but atheism and a disbelief in God altogether.
Mankind is the one who separated Jesus from the rest of us. That was not his choice. Aware of His innocence before God and man, He thought He could atone and take away the self hatred of mankind. This did not occur though. Man made Him into a super hero and the idol that we could cast stones at or worship as we look to him instead of acknowledging the love and omnipresence and omnipotence of God. Darlings, You are a part of The Three in One. You are God, Son, and Holy Spirit.
You come to see contrast so you can remember your mission and all it is is to forgive the Son for thinking He has separated from God, from what He is. The creation carries the DNA of the Creator. We are truly all connected and we have allowed ourselves to believe that we have separated. Yep, you are a part of that chocolate cake you made this afternoon. Awaken yourself, awaken the world.
Do not give up on humanity, do not give up on yourself. You are a significant component in the Salvation of the World. May we embrace what we are willing to receive and value ourselves right where we are today. The Spirit will guide us the rest of the way. Even our confusion and discontent is exactly where God wants us to be. He is not wasteful nor frivolous.
Till next time, God bless us all, in the name of Christ, Amen.
