Reminders, reminders, reminders . . .
Exercise your power under, not over.
Sounds like good advice, yeah?
But, “where do I start”, she said?
Ah, excellent. So glad you asked 🙂
Go directly to the source that is already within you.
Walk in the Spirit whose fruit is Righteousness, Peace, and Joy, Love/Charity, Patience, Gentleness, Goodness, Kindness, Meekness, Temperance.
You see, God is all in all (both the positive and negative – Spirit/Creator/Invisible/Father and the World, In Him, we live and move and have our being. We have been given, by God the power to choose whether we walk in the Spirit or in the fleshly carnal mind, i.e. Self contained and listening to the voice within OR in the flesh nature manipulating the world around us, attached to it, controlling it.
What is within is what is what is real. When you are walking in the Spirit (which is in you) God is in control. God does not seek to control you, rather God gives you the power to rule your world from withing. You really are King of the World, the world within you, within your imagination, your thoughts. Choose your thoughts, thoughts of life, love, and goodness.
You see how it is upside down from what “the world” thinks?
So Go . . . and BE and Dream dream big, find your passion and follow it, occupy yourself and your mind, your body, with good things, stay connected while busy reaching your goal. “Be the Change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi Detach from the world, surrender, rest in God, stop trying to figure it all out. Be a disciple and leave judgement (fruit of the tree of knowledge) of what is good and bad in His hand. Bless and do not curse. Live and love. Weep for those in bondage share with them support them and love them. Practice this and you will have beauty for your ashes. Isaiah 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
You are, (I am) made in God’s image.God does not control this world and yet he has it all under control. This is free will that in your thoughts, you create your world. Everything beyond your mind and imagination (good and bad) is God’s.
Get yourself together, don’t mock love. Instant Karma’s gonna get you (J. Lennon) ! Be loving, kind recognize everyone you meet for we are all worth dying for. Don’t worry about where they are in life or what they do and how you can change them.
YOU CAN NOT CHANGE ANYONE BUT YOU !
Now Look within every day, for that is where you will find everything you need to change your world. God sets before you life and death, good and bad, choose life, choose the good. Do not try to control what is outside of you, give yourself over to good and walk in Christ/The Spirit – whatever terminology you use, the true God IS ONE.
Exercise your power under not over. Mother Theresa was spot on, Gandhi, spot on, Martin Luther King, yes, George Harrison was spot on too, he wrote in his song: Within you Without You. Here are those lyrics: Within You Without You
We were talking about the space between us all and the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion Never glimpse the truth, then it’s far too late when they pass away. We were talking about the love we all could share. When we find it, to try our best to hold it there-with our love. With our love, we could save the world, if they only knew.
Try to realise it’s all within yourself. No one else can make you change and to see you’re really only very small and life flows on within you and without you.
We were talking about the love that’s gone so cold and the people who gain the world and lose their soul. They don’t know, they can’t see, are you one of them? When you’ve seen beyond yourself-then you may find Peace of mind is waiting there And the time will come when you see we’re all one and life flows on within you and without you.
You choose what to act on, good or bad. Look within and choose how you will live, you are free to do as you choose. We are all free to do as we choose. When you honor God and choose the good, you are living out the Kingdom, you will see the good come to you. Once you discover this for yourself you will be compelled to share this good, good news. You won’t have to do it grudgingly it will be a joy to you to share however and with whoever you choose.
God sets before you life and death, good and bad, choose life, choose the good. Do not try to control what is outside of you, give yourself over to good and walk in Christ/ The Spirit. Come out from among them and be separate. Exercise your power under not over.
Reminder: We who are in Christ (all who walk in love and wisdom) are instructed to walk in the Spirit whose fruit is Righteousness, Peace, and Joy, Love/Charity, Patience, Gentleness, Goodness, Kindness, Meekness, Temperance.
Do your best – sit with your imagination every day, examine yourself, test yourself, realize that Christ is in you, the power and the wisdom of God !
Power under others, by Power over yourself.
