He Pulled a Trapped Driver to Safety

As night fell on July 30, an afternoon rainstorm in Ellicott City, MD, turned into a torrential downpour. When Jason Barnes, 36, the owner of All Time Toys on Main Street, looked out the front door of his story, he saw a small car float into view. “The headlights were on,” he says. “I could tell someone was inside.” He trudged out into the deluge, determined to help the stranded driver. Two fellow shop owners joined him, and the three men grasped forearms to form a human chain from the sidewalk to the car. Jason convinced the driver to climb out of the car window. “I told her she was about 50 feet from being washed down the river,” says Jason. He lifted the woman over the worst of the raging water until she was able to grab the hand of one of the men. Jason insists he helped the way anyone would. “I was just the first link in a very strong chain,” he says.

Get Rid Of The “Bad” Apples?

Hi friends! A lot of us feel that the world would be a better place if we could just get rid of all the “bad” people in the world. If this or that person was more like us, we would have a heaven on earth! Right? I guess that would work if we all could Commit and come to an agreement on what’s defined as perfect behavior. But, we can’t because there is no such thing. The idea of perfection is instilled in each individuals mind. It’s an illusion. Most of the time we don’t even live up to our own standard of perfection. So I have to say it’s very hypocritical to judge others so harshly! And Of course there is taboos that I feel no one should do! And a majority of us would agree that certain things are just unacceptable. But just getting rid of those small groups who perform taboos won’t save the world. We all have taken on the role of judge, and we feel like it’s time to clean house to rid the world of “evil”!

hammer-719068__480

Oh wait! We can’t! Now we are arguing amongst each other. Since the creator of our brain gave us the ability to have free will, and our own unique perspectives, we can’t come to an agreement on good or bad? How? I mean everyone has the bible and ten commandments, right? No, and it’s not that easy. Take a look at the following example conversations:

These people say: “People who spank their children are abusive and evil.”

These people say: “Because no one spanks their children is why people  have become evil. People who don’t discipline is bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “People who eat meat are savages. It’s a life for God sake!”

These people say: “People who don’t eat meat are pushy and don’t want our bodies to be healthy. They are picking animals over human health! They are bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “God only love people of the Christian faith! The rest is bad people going to Hell!”

These people say: “God is love. My Religion/ faith doesn’t teach death or Hell. People like you are bad!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say:” “The death sentence is barbaric! No one should kill anyone! People who believe in that are savages!”

These people say: “Eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth. This person who killed someone deserve to die. People who don’t believe in the death sentence are bad! They have no regard for victims and care more about the bad guy!”

Who is right and who is wrong? 

These people say: “Same sex couples are wrong. God made man and woman. They are going against nature and God does not Love them. They are bad and going to Hell!”

These people say: “People who say God doesn’t love them have no soul. Same sex couples know no gender and you can’t help who you love. People are people. You people who hate them are savages!”

Who is right and who is wrong?

I could go deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of examples, but I’m sure you guys get it by now. Some of you couldn’t stomach some deeper examples! But, I suggest you do this exercise with yourself, because you’ll get better at seeing things from other’s point of view. Anyway, who is right? Who is the bad apples that we can get rid of to make a better world? A heaven on earth? The best we can do is feed our ego, put our judge gown on, and live in the illusion of superiority swearing that we are the only ones with the right answer. Or, we can shove each other’s religious answers down each other’s throat. Either way we are still bumping heads and still don’t know who should stay or go because we all are claiming to be right!

2 Corinthians 12:9

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness ” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Are you the ultimate judge of right or wrong?

Why I don’t judge other religions

Hi friends! I want to talk about why I personally don’t judge other religions. As humans, we have this little voice inside of us that believe that there has to be something or someone bigger than all of this. There has to be a purpose to this life and our life. And we yearn for love, safety, and to depend on someone bigger and more powerful than us. Our soul has this natural urge to be at one with the source of our breath. Billions of souls all around the world is looking, searching, and yearning for God.

window-1231894_640

None of us has seen God with our bare eyes. So you, me, and the whole world is going off of faith, traditions, and our heart. God can’t be seen, but can be felt so subtly in our soul and heart. We all swear that our religion is the right one! Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Jehovah witness, Mormon, and so on. All of them is different in belief or practice. But the one thing we forget  that we all have in common is that we all are merely trying to connect with our source. Longing for that love, acceptance, and help from our source. The one that we all share just in different ways. And yes, Christians I know the bible say I am a jealous God and their should be no carved images before me. But, it’s not your place to judge them. It’s God’s! All you are doing is placing hate in your heart! And God doesn’t condone hate. It’s a Loop of hate. How do I know? Because hate creates an uneasy feeling inside you. It torments your soul. It causes one to act mean and angry. And anger causes strife on others. At the end of the day, we all are walking by faith. We all are going by word of mouth. Taking a big leap of faith that our religious book and practices is real. That’s all we can do. Christians! Please stop sending other religions to Hell for their personal belief! It’s not your place. A lot of us is merely in a particular religion because we were raised in it. We were taught that particular religion from youth. Do you really think God would destroy someone from lack of knowing? None of us really “know”. We all walk by faith. To think you are only right is only feeding your ego and making yourself feel superior. None of us is superior! We are all down here having a human experience. All having faith that someone or something have our back that’s beyond it all!

Who is God?

Hi friends! I wanted to give you my personal perspective on who God is to me. I think God is so powerful that he is beyond our human brain. So beyond us that we lower God’s image so our human brain can comprehend him. We give God a persona because that’s the best way to comprehend and wrap our mind around his existence. But I personally feel that God is beyond the human form and experience. Even the bible talk about how Jesus came down as man and not God to get the human experience. To come to us in a form we can recognize and understand. I don’t think that God is a guy sitting in the sky. I think that God is pure existence, consciousness, and energy. God has no gender, color, or race. God is not good or evil. God is not love or hate. God has no specific location. God was never created or born. God can’t be destroyed. God is not happy, mad, or sad. God just is.  All of these things I mentioned are part of the human experience. Duality, polarity, emotions, personality, and being created is all part of human experience. God is beyond human experience! God has no label. God just is. Lol! 😄God just is!  And often we can’t comprehend that. Jesus is the best thing we can understand because God took on an identity. Or we just make statues and molded images to pray to.  So, yes, we often make God in our own image. Then you might wonder why does the bible say that we are made in God’s image? Because we are. Our soul is in God’s image. Our true self.  Our soul is eternal pure self-awareness and consciousness that was torn from God/ source. We don’t have a gender or personality/ ego until we are born into human flesh. Just like Jesus. Yes, God created the human image, but God doesn’t live in the human image. And yes, it’s possible for God to create an image that God doesn’t partake in! And no, God doesn’t have to create an image from something . God just created the human image from scratch. Stop chasing your tail trying to comprehend God and his creation! You don’t have to Meddle in it!

Who created God? Who created who created God, then who created who created them and so on? What color is God? There’s so many races to choose from! Stop it! You can’t catch up with the creator of your brain!

You are God?

Hi friends! There is a theory that I have been exposed to recently that say we are God. That God is broken into pieces and he is exploring himself simultaneously. This theory is very different then what I’m used to in the Christian faith. So I wanted to give my perspective on this topic. In the bible it does say that God is within us.

images

Now, since I have mostly studied from the bible, that is the only document I have to back up my personal belief. I wasn’t around when the bible was created, so I can only have faith that what it say is true. But, just in case the bible isn’t completely true, and the work has been tampered with over the hundreds of years, I also use my own inner voice and judgement. I listen to my heart. And I do believe God lives inside of me. I believe we are all torn off of his eternal garment. We are an extension of the source. A good example would be an melting ice cube. God is the ice cube, and we are the water droplets that drip from it.

ice-cubes-1224804_640

We are an extension from the source. I believe we were torn off of God to become our own person/ eternal soul. But, if you refreeze the ice, we become one again and there no separation. I don’t believe we are literally looking out of God’s eyes and we are God. But, let’s just say that the theory that we are God is true, we obviously wanted to have the illusion of separation. I don’t think we would create the illusion of separation to walk around claiming to be something we wanted to forget we were. It’s like how our children is an extension of us. Sometimes our child even look like our identical twin. But what if in reality our children is us in a separate form. And we have children so we can get away from just our self. We want that illusion of separation. We want someone to exchange I love you with, to befriend us, and to be grateful for the love and gifts we give and receive. But, our kids kept reminding us that they are us. They never admired or appreciated us because they always  telling us we are one in the same. So now the illusion served no purpose. How can you really enjoy life if you think you are God. How can you truly enjoy the creation of the universe if you think you did it? Despite the fact your human brain can’t even conceive how to make a sun, stars, moon, and so forth! Thinking you’re God only serve the purpose of ego. It only give you an illusion of feeling in control and having power over your life. But when tragedy and crisis hit, the illusion of power is crushed quick! Then that’s when you get off your ego trip and reach for someone or something outside yourself. The universe is an awesome creation, mankind is an awesome creation, The animal kingdom is an awesome creation.

universe-1044107_640

Why not be Relieved of ego and allow yourself to reach outside of yourself and say thank you for creating all of this! Thank you for giving life.

You can’t receive if you can’t conceive!

Hi friends! Most of us have things that our heart desires. Wether it be good health, more money, or a better home. The problem is that a lot of the things we really want always feel out of our reach. We look at others who have what we want and envy them. We often just give up on our dreams feeling like we just don’t have the tools or know how we need to accomplish our goals. But, despite the fact, we still do one thing hoping it works; and that’s prayer. When we pray, we often beg God, but don’t really have a lot of faith that it will be done. Deep in our hearts we feel undeserving and that it’s out of our range. So, we just hope that God will be merciful and maybe just maybe help us despite the fact. Here’s what the bible say about that:

7f79117119b5ee9368ba6849e383b2b8

When you pray, you have to be able to conceive your vision for God to be able to answer that prayer. If it’s God’s will, he will bring opportunities your way to answer that prayer. But if you can’t even conceive such a prayer is truly possible, you won’t even be aware of the opportunities brought your way. So If you feel a prayer hasn’t been answered, perhaps it’s because you’re blocking God’s way from not being able to conceive it to receive it. You have to get out of your low mindset. God truly wants what is best for you. I’ll give you a personal testimony. I have lived in Apartments all my life. I have always dreamed of owning a home. But because of my history, I just never bothered to conceive it. But, it never stopped me from throwing it in my prayers despite the fact. But one day I decided to question myself why I didn’t believe it was really possible. God is beyond my history and maybe just maybe if I get out this low mindset, I can start taking steps to reach my goal. If it’s meant to be, God will meet me half way. So I just started saying, ” I’m going to get this item to put in my new house”, and “when I get my new house.” I talked as if my prayer was already answered. That was my way of rising my faith. But I have to admit, those words rolling out of my mouth sounded so foreign. ” My new house”. 😄 But I said it anyway. But when I said it, my spirit rejoiced and I felt Relieved. And it just felt good to claim it. I started looking for homes and everything. Of course there was a small voice asking me where would I even get the finances from! But I told myself that it wasn’t my part to worry about and God would take care of what I couldn’t. Anyway, a year later, my husband bumped into someone who will help us reach our goal. I am so excited and grateful to God. But, I know none of this would have been possible if I didn’t finally have the bravery to own it and conceive it before hand.

So, what vision are you going to conceive?

A Life Without Obstacles?

Hi friends! Lately I have been thinking about how much I appreciate my life. Every good thing in my life I bask in it. I feel so greatful to God for my blessings as well as how God was there for me in the storm. And oh yes, I’ve been in the storm. But God was an umbrella over me in the storm. God didn’t escape me from the problem, but we had Collaboration in the storm. I still got wet, but God hovered over me to make sure I didn’t drown. I often think about if I would be this happy and greatful without the “bad” times. Haha😄, most likely not. I feel like I truly don’t take my children for granted because I know what miscarriage feel like. I truly appreciate my home because I know what homelessness feel like. I appreciate a warm meal because I know what starvation feel like. I’m blessed to know what it feels like to not have a mother’s love, because now I give my children the very best of me. I look back at the tough times in my life and thank God for them. My enjoyment and appreciation for things in life only amplified. How would we even know what joy felt like if there was no such thing as pain? Perfect example of this is having a spoiled child. Perhaps we had it tough as a kid, so we want to give our kids the easiest life possible. But, lot’s of times that backfires. Why? Because sometimes they turn into a spoiled brat. They complain about not getting the newest phone. They cry like their life is about to end! They never really enjoy much of anything because they just keep chasing for more and more! They have no idea what lack feel like so what is there to appreciate?

stock-photo-parents-try-hard-to-please-their-son-parenting-style-concept-379306531

And you as the parent have flashbacks thinking about how just one toy on Christmas made your day as a kid! So, you eventually give them tough love and force them to get a job. You stop giving them money and you give them a job mowing lawns in the summer heat. They absolutely hate working, but they actually found much greater appreciation for things. They also learned money doesn’t grow on trees. And, they get to take notice of other’s who have to work to just to eat. So, yes, my hard times has taught me not to be a spoiled brat! I take nothing for granted. And in the past when I did, God took certain things away. And yes, I snapped out of it quick!

Job 1:21: “Naked I came from my mothers womb, and naked shall I return there. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away; Blessed be the name of the Lord!”

Are there hard times that made you more greatful and a better person?
