Dreamer

Kindred,

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people."
                                -Eleanor Roosevelt

Ideas and dreams (not nightmares) create the positive solutions for humanity and the world.

The future belongs to the dreamers who dare to dream and to those that defend it.

And if you are ever stuck, dream and innovate your way out.

Written On Your Soul

Kindred,

The truth does not have any inconsistencies.

When there are inconsistencies, there are misinterpretations or lies.

If you are defensive right now, there is something wrong, because the statements are not accusations, but simple facts. 

"You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time."            -Abraham Lincoln

Unfortunately, some fools end up fooling themselves all of the time.

Belief in lies is like building a foundation on quicksand; it will eventually sink.

I am never sure who the liars or wrongdoers are trying to fool, but the truth eventually wills out and the Holy Spirit always sees.  

Sometimes I am surprised that believers fail to recognize the Holy Spirit in the room with them, Witnessing everything.

Everything you do is written on your soul anyway.  

Even if you forget or bury it deep in your conscience, it will still be there as part of your history.

When your Judgement Day comes, the Lord and Jesus Christ will know you and your history just by looking at your soul.


Integrity

Kindred,

Integrity or honesty in honoring the essence of Truth, is the foundation of good character.

It is adhering to a strong moral compass of virtue, fairness, decency, honor and Truth.

Without integrity all is compromised and broken, because not trustworthy.

There would be no confidence in the person or organization; and no standing with the Lord or humanity.

Integrity allows for wholeness and wellness of being.

Most importantly, it allows for clear connections with yourself and the Holy Spirit.

And this keeps you in good conscience and standing with the Lord.

Lifeline

Kindred,

Do not let mean people get to you or bring you down.

Insecure people have a tendency to project and magnify their fears in hate and aggression.

These people cling to delusions in power and contol as if grandiosities are lifelines instead of false securities.

If you allow their disrespect and abuse of humanity and themselves to weaponize of your mind, heart and soul in hate and agression, you will never be able to receive love and grace.

In other words, do not turn into or stoop to their level of dishonor  and disgrace.

The real lifeline you should cling to is the Holy Spirit.

You can defend yourself, your honor, integrity and humanity without hate by standing for love, honor, integrity, decency and grace.

Respect yourself and let the Healing force of  the Holy Spirit guide you and heal your internal trauma or turmoil.

You might be surprised by what happens with that Lifeline and the creations inspired by the Connection.

Brainyak

Dear Brainyak Snowflake❄,

I like Brainyaks.

Don't worry.

I have not forgotten you.

You only have to remember the lessons your Mom and Dad taught you and you will find your self-confidence again.

You are you for a reason.

Be humble and kind in your approach to self-growth and learning.

There is nothing wrong with having sensibilities and sensitivity. 

Just do your best.

💜

Practice Respect, Practice Love

Kindred,

Have you ever heard of the saying, "What goes around comes around"?

If you want to receive respect and love or basically anything good, you first have to be able to know it and give it.

Build upon the foundations of attributes the Lord endowed and bestowed upon you by practing good attributes.

Hopefully, these foundations of attributes are solid and not destroyed or damage in any way through sinful or bad practices.

Because what goes around comes around.

When you develop good practices by giving respect and love, it will be returned in fellowship with humanity.

Therefore,

Practice love;
Practice respect;
Practice thanksgiving;
Practice good attributes.

You might just find the foundations that will lead you Home.

Respect

Kindred,

I am confused by your friend's attitude when it comes to respecting the Lord and people, His children. 

He seems to think people have to earn his respect, instead of first giving respect. 

Was he not taught to respect people and the Lord?

If he does not give respect, he will never get respect. 

Respecting people also goes hand in hand with self-respect. 

Without self-respect you will never feel it to receive it.

When that happens, you experience low self-esteem and feelings of worthlessness.

Therefore, in order to not feel bad about yourself, you need to first respect yourself, the Lord and people.

Self-respect is a must if you are to ever feel truly good about yourself (and others).




P.s.

You can earn greater respect by being honorable and doing good.

You can lose respect by being dishonorable and doing bad or falling from grace.

Report Abuse

Kindred,

Do you know what happens to animals in cases of abuse?

The ending is often tragic. 

The same goes for abuse of people.  The abuses often escalates and the ending tragic.

If you know of any abuse,  report it.

Be the good Samaritan. 

Stop the abuses.

Nothing to Fear

Kindred,

You are not alone;

Every person fears.

"Nothing is so much feared as fear."                             -Henry David Thoreau

The key is to not let fear control or have power over you.

How then to cope or deal with fear?

Covering-up fear with drugs or alcohol is not the answer.   It does not cope or rootout of fear; it gives additional problems in drugs or alcohol.

Cope and deal with fear by admitting you are human and have fears.

Only by facing and confronting your fears can you breakdown root causes of your fears and root them out.

When we do not face our fears,  we have a tendency,  according to Freud, to project our fears,  insecurities and dislike of ourselves onto others.

What happens then is that we act out in series of dysfunctions and aggressions that hurt our character and hurt others in bad behaviors and misconduct.

Deal with what you do not like about yourself by giving yourself a break, be kind to yourself, allow yourself to fear,  and face fear.

Face it through respect and self-respect.  Respect the Lord and the  purpose instilled in you; and
respect yourself with compassion and respect your original purpose.

Knowing and realizing how far away you are from the person you need to be, allows you to work toward the person the Lord intended you to be.

The Lord intented that you should to be good, the better person and be part of the good stewards of humanity and all (of and on) the earth.

Moral Dilemmas

Kindred,

Thank you for your light of compassion that shines a glimmer of hope upon humanity in difficult situations.

When you are faced with traumatic  situations, are you ever sure of the best action?

Actions which must be in line with the Holy Spirit, not in terms of strict adherence, but in terms of compassionate integrity. 

But what actions to take when there are moral delimmas?

One sacred life does not override another sacred life.  When it conflicts, therein lies the moral conundrum.

What to do?

If you had to respond to the same consequences of unholy, sinful and disrespectful actions, actions that are not blessed by the Lord that befell the victim, what would you do?

In order words, under the same plight, what would you do if you were the victim of extreme disrepect and disregard and have to face these traumas?

Rape Is Rape

Rape is rape.

There is no such things as consensual rape.

Rape is an unholy violation against the sanctity of life, against humanity and against the Lord (as a child of God).


To turn Christ's Church into hunting grounds for sexual predators is sacriledgious and an affront to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

To allow these cockroaches dictate policy by giving them power corrupt  into sins of the flesh, abuse your innocents, daughters and sons with sacriledgious violations are not only sacriledgious, but are acts of cowardice.

What Constitutes a Person?

Kindred,

What constitutes a person?

How would you define yourself?

Now, would you be fine with having someone else or government decide for you who you should be or what you should do in your personal life?

Compassion is defined as having sympathy for the sufferings and pains of another.  

Being humane is having compassion and treating everyone and every situation with consideration. 

When the righteous pass laws that do not have consideration or compassion  then despite the intent, these laws are inhumane.

It is inhumane because these laws do not have consideration for the suffering and misery of the victims and cruelly force revictimization and deprivation of civil rights.

What constitutes a person?

When laws remove civil rights of a person or individual  without consideration for sufferings of victims, then not only are the laws inhumane, it also prevents a person from being a person with rights to decide personal life decisions.

In cases of unholy violations against a person, not only are there crimes against humanity committed, there are  sacrilegious violations against the sanctity of life (of the victim and person) and the Lord. 

These crimes and sins are without the consent of the victim and are  not blessed by the Lord.

Floral Remedy

Kindred,

What is the purpose of studying floral remedy?

When reading up on the topic,  I discovered that floral remedies addressed spiritual healing as well as other home remedies ranging from stress relief to sleep.

The floral remedy that stood out for my spiritual journey was "to observe your miracles objectively,  so you can learn from them and move on to other miracles". 

Which then I had to ask,  "Why must you and what happens when you do not?"

The deep spiritual question asked with each floral remedy helps you to examine where you are in the spiritual process and if you have ailments or deficiencies help you to remedy it to a spiritual well-being, whole and self- confident.

For my person, none of the other floral remedies jumped out, except the chestnut bud remedy. 

I encourage you to take a look at floral remedies and see if there are areas in which you would need to work on in order to realize your full lightness of being.

The Way of Being

Kindred,

If you have not already guessed,  the first question yesterday was a trick question.

Most answers in life are not formed in terms of right or wrong,  true or false.

Life is a process; hopefully,  it is a process of growth or evolution.

On your learning personal journey,  the question is, "What have you learned (on your spiritual journey)?"

Yes, sometimes you are compelled to make a choice, yes or no or abstain,  but it is in terms of practicality.   Before you reach the decision and choice,  there is a process. 

The paradigm,  philosophical framework,  by which you arrive at a decision hopefully involves a deep spiritual connection with the Holy Spirit and defenses against biases, fears,  hatred and sins.

Lao-Zi, a Daoist philosopher,  said, "the Way that can be told is not the eternal Way."

Every person's life journey is different,  no two the same.   Countless experiences and possibilities enter into your individual way that connects to the eternal Way.

In other words,  your life is not measured in terms of right or wrong,  but in your choices that determines your path and spiritual journey,  unique to yourself.

Sometimes your actions,  when it impacts yourself and others negatively are measured in terms of harm and injuries or wrongs,  but collectively is measured as your character.

Though your character attributes can be described as negative,  it is not a wrong,  because there is no action involved in simply being or existing in negative state (or vice versa).

You and your character,  your journey can be described as good or bad,  holy or unholy,  neither good or bad,  blah, but not in terms of right or wrong.

Before you turn and reduce your life and life's decisions into a trifle debate, take a good look at who you are and who the Lord intended you to be.

Ask meaningful,  heartfelt questions that will allow you to grow or evolve into the person you are meant to be (as determined by the Lord).

Be a better person.

And hopefully,  you will find your way Home.







Lao-Zi quotes:

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

Reexamine

Kindred,

Are you sure you are so right?

Who among you would think that you might be one of the many Jesus spoke about on Judgement Day?

You have been taught that if you believe in Jesus then you shall be saved,  right?

Yet, Jesus denied Heaven to many of his believers,  because Jesus found them to them be unholy; and Jesus repeatedly stated that few will find the gate of life,  the way that leads to it hard and most will not be allowed entry into Heaven.

Would it surprise you that the many Jesus spoke of included ministers,  pastors and priests?

When ministers and priests behave like Pharisees or worse, are sinful, practicing sins of the flesh, (then preaching the Word in misguided ways or worse, sacriledgious ways as coverup for their sins) then how do expect (the flock) to find the gate and live the Life?

Do you think it is wise then to not reexamine what you think you know the teachings or take a hard look at what is happening to your soul?

In this reexamination process,  keep in mind the law of the prophets,  "Do for others what you want them to do for you. "

Take a hard look at what you believe to be true,  what you have done,  and again, ask yourself, "How would you feel if the same things were to happen to you?"

Begin

Kindred,

To answer your question, perhaps you could begin with meditation or prayer in mindful, heartful and soulful purpose with the Holy Spirit (in accord with the healing gifts granted by Lord). 

Sunday, May 12, 2019

Even If

Kindred,

Even if you do not make it into Heaven, you should ensure that your children will have the pathway to Heaven.

You do this by following the commandments of Jesus Christ and defending against sin  in yourself, in the home, in the church, in schools and in the world.

By providing a nurturing, loving, caring and ethical environment, your kids can grow into the person the Lord meant for them to be.

The world would be a better place for it.

And perhaps by saving your kids and the world, you might just save yourselves.

Happy Mother's Day!

Dear Mom,

Thank You  for your love, sacrifices, gifts of care and teachings of kindness and compassion.

May the Lord bless you with Love and Peace, Health and Guidance, Hope and Joy.

Love,

Your grateful kid 🐣

Are You In Danger?


Kindred,

Are you in danger, in danger of sin? 

You focus on predictors in the world, in order to identify dangers before they occur. 

But what if the danger is in you? 

There is a pervasive assumption that because the Lord is Love that all sins would be forgiven. 

If this is the case, there would be no Hell.  Satan would be in Heaven. 

If the dangers of sin, is about forgiveness or love of the Lord or the victim, Jesus would not have said, “I never know you” to the many that came to Him, on Judgement Day, claiming that they spoke the message of God, (in the name of Jesus) drove out many demons and performed many miracles.  
Only to have Jesus then say to them “get away, unholy people!” 

Why would Jesus say this to so many and how did they come to be unholy? 

Nothing in their statements of speaking the message of God, driving out demons and performing miracles are indicators of unholiness.  Moreover, the many do not appear to be nonbelievers.  Quite the opposite, but why then would Jesus say to them that they are unholy? 

When people fail to recognize sin, the dangers of sin, they (the Unholies) fail to defend against sin.   Sins then gain footholds within that person and are practiced by that person.

When people practice sinful behavior, they become unholy. 

By the time the many realize their unholiness on Judgement Day, they are denied by Jesus, barred from Heaven and ended up burning in Hell (as determined by their unholiness in unrepentant and unrecognized sins). 

How then to avoid this fate, to know the dangers of sin? 

Be honest. 

Practice empathy. 

Take the empathy test.  “Did you do for others what you would want them to do for you?” 

If not, how far was this difference from what Jesus would do? 

If it was far, then it was very unholy and sinful. 
Are you in danger, in danger of sins and therefore, of burning in Hell? 

If you are unholy and sinful, repent and atone while there is still time.

Empathy


Kindred,

Empathy is the ability to understand the feelings of another. 

It is the ability to connect and listen to another person heart to heart. 

To feel what another person is going through by place yourself in another’s position and situation. 

Without empathy, you cannot understand fully the (moral) Law and the teachings of the prophets, “Do for others what you want them to do for you.” 

This Law or Golden Rule is further expounded by Jesus in the two commandments: to love the Lord and to love thy neighbor. 

You cannot obey these commandments without empathy.  Therefore, you cannot enter Heaven without empathy. 

When you break the (moral) Law, you are going against the teachings of the prophets and of Jesus Christ. 

How wrong, immoral, sinful or unholy, the sacrilege depends upon the level of harm or injury committed against the person and the Lord. 

Ask yourself, “How you would feel if the same things were to happen to you?” 

“How would you respond to similar treatments?” 

If you would not feel so good and would respond negatively, then what happened was not good. 

The severity of your response is the indicator of how much harm and how unholy the sins were or are (if the patterns of bad practice are still in practice). 

“Do not do to others what you do not want them to do to you.” 

If you want salvation, you need to have empathy and practice love (fellowship). 

If you want a better world, you need to have empathy and practice love. 

Love the Lord, love yourself and thy neighbor as the Lord Loves you.

Teacher, Thank You


Dear Teacher,

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

The best advice you gave was to Believe. 

Every Christmas, as the Spirit of Saint Nicholas filled our hearts with warmth, love and the spirit of giving, you reminded us to Believe. 

Where there are some who would tear people down, slander and bully, you lifted us up. 

Lifted us up into the heavens and deep into the depths of love, and give hope and inspiration to our dreams. 

Thank you.

Thank you, Teacher Elizabeth, for your belief in this dreamer’s dreams and in my person. 

I credit you for inspiring many of my humble dreams. 

Thank you for your encouragement and your inspirations, your hard work in everything, especially in character building and making dreams possible. 

I Believe because of you. 

Much of who I am is because of you.

Thank you.

For Your Care


Kindred,

Do you ever feel as if you are not quite sure what religion certain Christian people are practicing? 

These people quote scripture, but out of context.  

Talk about love, but practice hate or superiority. 

Love is not a hierarchy to be controlled or lofted over. 

Love is a warmth of heart, a gentleness of soul.

Do not go around possessing love, religion or people, because all belongs to the Lord. 

Just like your children are not your possession.  They are not Mini-Mes to be groomed in your likeness, but gifts from the Lord, on loan to you for care, to be raised in accordance to the Lord’s Will and Purpose.  

They are their own person, individual and special in every way.  When you force conformity to you or society, you destroy the fabric of their uniqueness.  You destroy the snowflake. 

To take or destroy what belongs to the Lord is sacrilegious.  To take or touch without consent is sacriledgious.

The children’s compass is the pattern created by the Lord and their growth is designed to be with the Holy Spirit. 

As parents, we set the tone for learning, and development, not possession.

And the tone should be that of excellence in character and deed with love, respect and regard for the Lord and for all of God’s children.

Baby Steps


Kindred,

Life is never what you expect.

Until you have experience it, you do not really know. 

When you make good choices, you have a better chance of experiencing good outcomes. 

If your choices are in line with the Love and Peace of the Holy Spirit, you will have the best possible outcomes, regardless of the situation. 

You do not have to predict the future to try to get at good outcomes, if for every moment of every day you follow the Holy Spirit. 

And if everyone everywhere chooses the best possible outcome, what a wonderful world it would be. 

How then to connect with the Holy Spirit to know what to do? 

Begin with knowing where you want to be in the end, Heaven.

Salvation is the ultimate goal. 

To achieve this goal, it requires intention, discernment, dedication and work to being the person the Lord intended you to be. 

Not necessary who you want to be, but who you need to be. 

In other words, do not indulge in wishful thinking (Heaven is not a guarantee; few will find Heaven’s Gate) or your own selfish desires, but work to build good character in integrity and purpose of spirit with the Holy Spirit. 

Before we explore further, for now, let us work on these first few baby steps by pondering, praying and meditating on:

Heaven

Salvation

The Lord’s creation:

Who are you (supposed to be, according to the Lord)?  ____________

Have you strayed from the Lord’s original blueprint?  _____

What must you do to return to the Lord or be a better person?  ____________

What is your character?  (Is it acceptable to the Lord?)  ____________

How different is your character from where it should be?  ____________

How do you build or rebuild your good character?   ___________

What is your purpose (in accordance to the Lord) in life?  ____________

With Love


Kindred,

Even Jesus said that there will always be the poor in the world. 

But it does not mean we let the poor suffer or not create as many opportunities as possible for people to better themselves and their family.  

The human condition is a part of life.  Whether rich or poor, we are subject to similar constraints in health, in mind, in heart and in the soul. 

There are no ways to go through life without ups and downs, and eventually we all die. 

Whether an event is sad, tragic or celebratory, it is how we deal with it that define our character and life. 

Some deal with their situation in life by hate or blame. 

These haters hate another group for taking away jobs that they imagine would have been theirs without betterment of themselves or without innovating and creating new industries and products that actually create the jobs. 

Will hate come up with cures for cancer or disease? 

Will hate improve the quality of life? 

Will hate come up with any kind of productive solutions in understanding or wisdom?

There are many reasons why Jesus taught us not to hate, but to love with humility and compassion. 

It is for the love for humanity that Jesus died for us. 

It is through the love of humanity that we have the passion to serve and be inspired to come up with creative innovations for betterment of the world and humankind. 

As stewards of the earth, we are called to serve the Lord and everybody with love, not hate.

Legacy


Kindred,

Do you raise little pests? 

You know the kind that are worse than little brats. 

Would you like to be known for the household that raise pests? 

How about having a country of pests? 

Instead being known as the of Land of the Free, the Land of the Cockroaches. 

Or instead of Home of the Brave, Home of the Cowards.

Do you think this reputation will sit well for your children?

Do you think this reputation will sit well with Jesus?

When Jesus upturned the tables of the money-changers in the Temple, do you think it was about forgiveness or the elimination of bad behaviors and sin? 

How do you think Jesus would react if you turned the Temple or Church into a hunting ground for sexual predators, child molesters, crass and lascivious behaviors, and cockroaches? 

How would Jesus react if you turned your home into a place of pests or someone else home into a place of pests? 

Does your friend really want to be remembered as a common pest? 

And pass that legacy on? 

Do you?

Home

Dear Boo,

You have a tendency to compartmentalize relationships, but separating your heart from yourself to immunize yourself from your feelings is not healthy; especially,  when you fool yourself into believing you have control.

Bottom line, ever heard of this proverb?

Home is where the heart resides.

The heart does not reside in the various compartments of your mind. 

Nor does the true heart resides anywhere else.

Here is an Irish blessing to help guide your way home:

May the road rise to meet you. 
May the wind be always at your back. 
May the sun shine warm upon your face. 
And rains fall soft upon your fields. 
And until we meet again, may the Lord hold you         in the hollow of His hand. 

I hope you find your way home.

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Remember

Boo,

Remember the time when __________?

Thank you for your teachings of significance and gifts of love, peace, joy and hope.

The world may forget, but I never will.

Few will understand or see the depth of vision and breadth and width of your wisdom and comprehension.

Fakers will lie, steal, sabotage and defraud, but these nonsense messer-uppers will never compare, because of their negativity and lies.  There are nothing positive to compare.

Those pale imitators are subpar, inadequate, easily forgettable and disregarded.

I will remember the real you.
