“God says, 'You may not have what you want’.” When I first encountered those words in Conversations with God-Book 1, I remember thinking, "Wait a minute! That's exactly the opposite of what all religions teach!"
Has the human race lost control of itself? Is this just another aberration, or have there now been enough "aberrations" to make us ask: Are we really this primitive, this barbaric as a species? What is the problem here? What is causing all of this?
Often I am asked, "What is the secret of a joyful, fulfilling life?" I have looked at that question for many years, and I have come to the conclusion that one of the secrets, at least, if not the only one, is Purpose.
Let us continue in our series of explorations that I have titled “Getting to Know God.” One of the most common ideas about God is that God is on our side. God is in our corner. God grants us favors because we are in God’s favor.
The world has an interesting mind-set about this business of talking with God. Most people believe that not only are conversations with God possible, but they have occurred. In fact, most religions are based on this assumption. What people cannot seem to agree on is when God stopped talking.
Here is part two of the discussion on COMMUNICATION with Spirit. What are the RULES" for God when they deal with Humanity? What are "blocks and filters?" Kryon continues to give common sense information about Human spirituality.
Let me tell you a little story about the day my father died. I knew that my father was not in the best of heath for some time. He was 83 years old and his health had been deteriorating, and so, his death was not a shock to me.
I don't know about you, but I've spent my whole life looking for my truth outside of myself. First, I found it in my parents, who were my earliest authority figures, and who I assumed spoke Nothing But The Truth on everything.
When I was a young boy I lived in a black and white world. It appeared to me as if things were either one way or another. I saw very little gray in between the black and white, and I certainly did not envision a world in which two sets of facts which were obviously contradictory could exist simultaneously in the same space and both be true.
How can we meet the events of our every day life these days with equanimity and inner peace while the planet turns in turmoil over events in Ukraine, in Syria, in Egypt, and around the world? For that matter, how can we reconcile even the events in our own every day lives with the spiritual truth we all seek to embrace and to live?
Once again this week the world faces enormous stress as the circumstance in Ukraine changes virtually by the hour, even as the crisis in Syria continues, even as a small earthquake rattled Los Angeles on Monday, even as a huge jetliner goes missing for two weeks with 239 people on board, even as U.S. President Barack Obama declared that “now is the time” for peace between Israel and Palestine.
As the situation in Ukraine continues to threaten the stability of what fragile peace we experience in some of this world (clearly, not in all of it), the members of our species chance upon the question once again: What will it take for us to stop behaving like this?
