Of course, the underlying Truth…LOVE.
Control Freaks of the World….give it up!
I think I am like many, I have heard something I did not like nor agree with, so I rejected it outright. I have since learned that I am reacting to something in the message; and I need to understand that. See, its not the message, but me. When I was willing to confront that, then I can understand and grow. Isn’t that part of Salvation?????
I experienced this personally. We try to appear to others as we THINK we need to be. We want to appear to others as we think we SHOULD. It ends up as a disaster. We use sooooooooooo much energy in maintaining the facade, and we have no energy left to BE the Child of God, whom we truly are.
Salvation is to accept that reality that we are loved by God, no matter what. Salvation is also to accept that all others are loved by God, NO MATTER WHAT. Once this sinks in, integrity begins. Energy is found and we can love…..AND be loved in return.
I think so much suffering is caused by us and all, because we will not accept this, and we live “Fake” lives.
It becomes too easy to forget that we are loved by the Father, no matter what. When we forget, we start thinking we need to earn it, prove it, so I think we get focussed on the details and how well we do them.
SO REMEMBER: God loves us always, permanently, no matter what we have done, or what we think we have done.
