Doing Gods Will

T-2.V.A.18. (8) You can do much on behalf of your own healing and that of others if, in a situation calling for help, you think of it this way:

2 I am here only to be truly helpful.

3 I am here to represent Him Who sent me.

4 I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do, because He Who sent me will direct me.

5 I am content to be wherever He wishes, knowing He goes there with me.

6 I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.

MY LAW – Tieme Ranapiri

MY LAW – Tieme Ranapiri

The sun may be clouded, yet ever the sun Will sweep on its course till the Cycle is run. And when into chaos the system is hurled Again shall the Builder reshape a new world.

Your path may be clouded, uncertain your goal Move on – for your orbit is fixed to your soul. And though it may lead into darkness of night The torch of the Builder shall give it new light.

You were. You will be! Know this while you are: Your spirit has travelled both long and afar. It came from the Source, to the Source it returns The Spark which was lighted eternally burns.

It slept in a jewel. It slept in a wave. It roamed in the forest. It rose from the grave. It took on strange garbs for long eons of years And now in the soul of yourself It appears.

From body to body your spirit speeds on It seeks a new form when the old one has gone And the form that it finds is the fabric you wrought On the loom of the Mind from the fibre of Thought.

As dew is drawn upwards, in rain to descend Your thoughts drift away and in Destiny blend. You cannot escape them, for petty or great, Or evil or noble, they fashion your Fate.

Somewhere on some planet, sometime-and somehow Your life will reflect your thoughts of your Now. My Law is unerring, no blood can atone – The structure you built you will live in – alone.

From cycle to cycle, through time and through space Your lives with your longings will ever keep pace And all that you ask for, and all you desire Must come at your bidding, as flame out of fire.

Once list’ to that Voice and all tumult is done Your life is the Life of the Infinite One. In the hurrying race you are conscious of pause With love for the purpose, and love for the Cause.

You are your own Devil, you are your own God You fashioned the paths your footsteps have trod. And no one can save you from Error or Sin Until you have hark’d to the Spirit within.

Does God really care about us?

 

Does God Care about us?

Excerpt from an article by Neale Donald Walsch

April 2015

I was describing God in this way:

“God is not a Super Being in the Sky, with the same proclivities and emotional needs as human beings, including the need for love and for revenge when love is betrayed or not given. God is life’s Essential Energy.

You might want to call that energy Pure Intelligence.

“Intelligence doesn’t care whether you believe in It or not. It doesn’t care whether you use It on purpose or not. If you do use It on purpose, It doesn’t care how. It makes no judgment about any this. In fact, It makes no judgment about anything at all.

“Pure Intelligence wants nothing, needs nothing, seeks nothing. It simply Is. It exists in a way that allows Itself to be used. It does this, it allows this, it makes this possible, by placing Itself inside of Everything. Wherever you look you will find Pure Intelligence. It is at the basis of all things that exist. Snowflakes reflect Pure Intelligence. The tiniest atoms reflect Pure Intelligence. The biggest swath of the night sky reflects Pure Intelligence. The process of life Itself, examined at every level, reflects Pure Intelligence.

“The energy that I am here calling Pure Intelligence can be used — is being used — at every level of life, by Life Itself. You are using this energy, you are focusing this energy, every second of every minute of every hour of every day…usually without knowing it.

“The fact that this energy exists, and the way to focus it, therefore using it to one’s personal advantage, is what I am calling Pure Intelligence and that, I am telling you, is another name for God, and God has no opinion about anything. That is because It doesn’t need anything. It is singularly without need, for the simple reason that it is Everything That Exists in Any Form Whatsoever.

This includes not only physical things, but metaphysical things as well. This includes all spiritual things, and anything in any form that simply IS…including thoughts, emotions, feelings, ideas, and, yes, the Black Holes of Space.

“Think about this. If God is truly Everything That Exists in Any Form Whatsoever, what in the world could God want or need or require? Why would God punish us for not giving God what we imagine that God wants or needs or requires? The answer to these questions is self-evident. It need not be discussed in great detail, because simple logic reveals it to us and makes it clear how we have been held captive by the mythologies of our own culture and its past.

“The opportunity that lies before us, and before all sentient beings, is to use the Essential Energy of Pure Intelligence in the way in which it was designed to be used. Not all things that exist in the universe can use this Essential Energy consciously. That is, with full self-awareness and with intention. Only those elements of Life Itself that are self-conscious — that is, aware of themselves — can do so.

“I should correct that last statement. Not even all elements of life that are self-conscious can use the Essential Energy consciously. It is not only a question of being conscious, it is also a question of the level of consciousness that a being or a species has attained. For instance, a dog, while highly intelligent, is not sufficiently self-aware (as far as we know) to be able to use Essential Energy with intention.

“Human beings are not only aware of themselves, they are aware that they are aware, and so have risen to at least the Second Level of Consciousness. This level of consciousness allows sentient beings to notice themselves, and even to notice themselves noticing themselves.

That is, we can stand ‘outside of ourselves’ and watch ourselves doing what we are doing and thinking what we are thinking and saying what we are saying. We can even watch ourselves watching ourselves. We can step back into the hallway of awareness, looking through doorways both forward and backward — and, according to some, ultimately seeing and experiencing our Divine and Sacred Self.”

“Before we go on with that,” I said, “let’s talk about this business of God not caring, and the idea that this means God is not loving.

“Not caring what we do is not the same as not loving us. I want you to imagine your own children, sent out to the back yard to play. Do you care what games they choose? Does it matter to you whether they play Tag or Hide and Seek or Kick the Can? Of course not. In fact, you would never even dream of impinging on their inventiveness by dictating to them how they must use their play time.

“All you do say to them is, ‘Go, now, and play! Enjoy yourself! And if you need me, I’ll be right here. ”

“This is what God says to us. The fact that God does not care what we do is a sign of how much God loves us, not how little! For freedom to be and do and have what we choose is the greatest gift of all. It is the biggest treasure and the grandest gift that God could give us. Even traditional religion teaches that God has given us this gift. It is called Free Will.

“Love is freedom. The two words are interchangeable. When you love someone you grant them total freedom to be, do, or have whatever they choose. This is true love: to allow each person to walk his path.

“This does not mean give no advice (God gives us all lots of wonderful advice). And this does not mean release a person to total freedom when they are not ready (as with a small child). But it does mean the granting of freedom in stages, as the being matures, until Total Freedom becomes the gift.

“When we say, ‘I love you enough to choose for you what you choose for you,’ then we have truly loved. There comes a time when we let go of what WE choose for a particular individual, and ‘give in’ to what THEY are choosing–so long as it does not impinge on our OWN freedom. (This can never be the case, of course, with God.)

“There comes a time when we can say, in love and in truth, ‘I don’t care what you choose. It is not a concern of mine. I have no opinion. And I absolutely have no judgment. I have a desire, but that is all. My desire is that you choose well, my child. I desire that you choose the highest that you can see, the highest that you can imagine. But this is merely a desire, not to be confused with an emotional attachment or any need. In that sense, I ‘do not care.’

“But I am here for you always. And so, if ever you need me, you need but call, and I will be there.”

“This is what all good parents eventually say to their children. This is what God says to us.

The Living Word

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Gospel of John, Chapter 1

————————————–

When you realise that you are one with God, nothing is impossible.

Jesus embodied this eternal truth 2000 years ago and that truth lives on in the holy spirit.

The internal realisation of unity with God is the birthright of every human being in creation.

The Lords Prayer

This is a prayer I say very often. It always helps me feel connected to God and reminds me of the need to rely on him in the good times and the bad.

“Dear Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed by thy name,
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,
For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen”
