Freedom from suffering. Who does not want that? "Learn what suffering is and you will possess the capacity to escape it." (Gospel of John) Baptized in local churches, before I was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 27, where I remained dedicated for three decades. I have not considered myself a member since 2015. I do not find life easy or reasonable. I have little desire to mingle with society, considering it mentally ill. I am committed to following Jesus' teachings. He has helped me persevere. I am a self-taught student of A Course In Miracles, which I found in 2013. It is said that Jesus participated in this circle dance/song. One stands in the center: "I wish to be saved and I wish to save. I wish to be freed and I wish to free. I am a mirror to you who perceives me. In response to my dance see yourself in me as I speak." To Freedom!
About Yvonne Debra Simmons aka Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter
Welcome: Please read at your own risk and be responsible for your own edification and enlightenment.
Disclaimer: I no longer consider myself a traditional Christian. I do still follow the Jesus I have come to know and I follow the Holy Spirit, as I recognize Him. I believe that Jesus taught us that we are the Christ and the "I Am" he referred to encompassed all of us. Thus, I believe we have misunderstood many teachings of Jesus.
I consider myself a seeker and a believer in humanity and that there is a purpose to being; and an answer as to why we have the suffering that we do. I believe that the Holy Spirit is the instructor we should seek and that means trusting your own heart and being responsible for the guidance we follow. That means learning to hear and heed the voice of warning, instruction, or confirmation.
I continue to be a student and an observer. Watching for something that tells me my hypothesis is wrong, or that I need to tweak it in some way.
Writing is my greatest instructor these days. When I begin a book I do not know where it will end up or how it will develop, but I do know that I will be a changed person when I finish, knowing myself better.
That may just be the best we can hope for in life.
I feel as if I have died and gone to heaven numerous times as I have uncovered secrets that I long to share.
My body will age and fulfill the contract I made with Christ (meaning all of us) to bare witness of His divine curse of suffering, but my spirit and intellect will bare witness of His innocence and the beauty and expanse of The Father's Love for His Son.
To me, this, for now, is the ultimate freedom.
I wish no argument with anyone. May we each be true to our own conscience.
God bless us every One, Namaste~
