Quit Yer Bitchin’ – Mental Diets 1.1

Consciousness

I was just standing quietly on the porch thinking when I decided to roam around the grounds making myself at home.  Having a conversation with myself, you know, thinking.

I was cogitating on the Oneness of the All in All, Above all, in all and through all. And how true it is that everyone you meet has the same breath, the same light that lights every man. When I came around the corner and saw a neighbor doing, far as I can tell,   the same thing.

We had the most lovely conversation, we laughed and laughed enjoying things we had in common. Made my day.  We said goodbye and I went up the stairs and stood for a few more minutes just noticing and being thankful.

That right there my friends, was a good glimpse of glory, and I appreciate it. I’d like to do that more and more.

While standing on the stairs I was moved by some train of thought that got me off track brought me down a little. The thinking that stopped me was Noticing how much people complain, and how much you and I complain. Complaints depreciate gratitude. Well, grace abounds and gratitude always appreciates. I don’t like depreciating or complaining. I’m going to give it my best to stop complaining inside and out. Starting while it’s still today.

People just love to complain, we are always seeking comfort while remaining uncomfortable with where we are. Tell me, please, how can we be comfortable, if we complain about being uncomfortable with where we are at? Just think about it.

Very sad.

Along with all that complaining comes the control issues:
Control issues?     I once had someone tell me not to breathe a certain way because they found it annoying. Like I was doing it on purpose to annoy them. I’ve been doing my best to imagine them content, and happy – for that is all I truly wish to be. Yet I fall short …
But, this is for another blog, another day.

As within – So without

Full responsibility !! – nothing outside yourself/myself is responsible for your world, for the “without” is a reflection of the “within”.  We choose our thoughts, our imaginations they are the seeds we plant in the garden of our minds and what we plant grows and blooms unless we weed it out.  We have the choice of controlling our thoughts and guiding them in love and kindness, gentleness, joyfulness, patience, peacefulness in all we know to be good in life, or we can let our imaginations run wild, thereby reflecting chaos, malice, strife, hatred, envy, division, murders, wars, destruction.

http://biblehub.com/luke/17-21.htm
21 They can’t say, ‘Here it is!’ or ‘There it is!’ You see, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Now in all this I am still just a child, learning, growing,
Simple, but not necessarily easy it takes practice, patience, and faith most of all.

Freinds, I beg you, choose your thoughts wisely, choose the noble, choose love, choose life.

BIG LOVE

Paula Cole – ME
“Me”
I am not the person who is singing,
I am the silent one inside.
I am not the one who laughs at people’s jokes,
I just pacify their egos.
I am not my house, my car or my songs,
They are only stops along my way.
I am like the winter, I’m a dark cold female,
With a golden ring of wisdom in my cave.

And it’s me who is my enemy
Me who beats me up
Me who makes the monsters
Me who strips my confidence

I am carrying my voice
I am carrying a heart.
I am carrying the rhythm
I am carrying my prayers, but you can kill my spirit, it’s old and it is strong,
And like a mountain, I’ll go on and on.
But when my wings are folded,
The brightly colored moth blends into the dirt into the ground

And it’s me who is my enemy.
Me who beats me up.
Me who makes the monsters.
Me who strips my confidence.
And it’s me who’s too weak,
And it’s me who’s too shy to ask for the thing I love.
And it’s me who’s too weak,
And it’s me who’s too shy to ask for the thing I love.
But I love

I am walking on the bridge,
I am over the water,
And I’m scared as hell
But I know there’s something better. Yes, I know there’s something better,
(Yes I know, yes I know, yes I know, yes I know)

What’s on your mind?

Facebook is always asking . . .
So I decided to answer:

What’s on your mind?

Who me?
What’s on my mind? I’m just gonna share it –
 
My mind is on my mind, a lot. I mean I’m thinking about what I’m thinking about, AND, and if I find that I’m not, then I remind myself to WAKE UP !! and intentionally pay attention , examining, ordering, and choosing my thoughts very carefully. It’s like freaking brain surgery only you’re not sure if you are under the influence or wide awake. It’s like quantum physics type stuff, really freakin’ hard. I can’t even remember how to multiply fractions and I’m trying to attempt to crawl inside my own skull and ReKnew, Everything I Thought I knew??? .
 
(ReKnew is a fantastic blog BTW, if you want to check it out, it has my heart. – http://www.reknew.org ).
 
I have to tell you it is NOT EASY, it is a lot of hard work. I mean, it’s like freaking warfare it’s so difficult. All this thinking … like training for an amazing Gladiator battle. I need my shield, all my armor, my helmet, swift feet and a sharp two-edged sword !! Until I remember that the battle is not mine and can breathe again and search for the flow. I remember to be like water (there’s a post or two coming on that concept 🙂 ). 
 
So here is the way I figure it:
I am mind, I am heart and soul, strength, and mind. I am thought that inspires you. In you breathe, and out your breath goes, it goes on and on. Have you taken any time notice lately?
I am that which makes your fingernails grow. Creator, in creation, I am that which allows the wind to blow where it will, and you cannot tell where it comes or where it goes. I am the very force that makes and keeps your heart beating, your lungs breathing in and out, filling your blood with love like oxygen (hey, I’m a child of the 70/80’s, cut me some slack, will ya !! ) – I am that, life. The rest is up to you. Choose which you will serve, evil or good, life or death.
 
You already know my name, you use it all day long.
 
Resistance is futile for I will and do as I please, it’s all of me, by me, and for me. Resistance is futile for I am as you are and we shall ever be, together as one. I am has sent me, I say STOP! Do not fear for I am with you, Be STILL  and KNOW.   be still and know….
…get quiet,
page-divider-transparent-gold-20816
Move in a little closer.
What do you hear?

Move up a little higher,
What do you see?
page-divider-transparent-gold-20816
I promise you the air is much easier to breathe in this place.
God’s grace is sufficient for all who will look within and without, spirit housed in flesh.

 
HEY MAN !!! You asked for it. Remember ???
All my love, ~gini.
page-divider-transparent-gold-20816
PS-Hey…. is that megalomaniacish?

Don’t worry about it. It’s all good, I AM Enjoying it more all the time.
BIG LOVE,
BIG LIFE,

Imagination and the Kingdom of God


Our whole point  depends on our definition of God.
Is there a God?

There are many gods, or rather we make gods out of many things.

I believe there is only one true and living God.   What do I/we know about God?

 Firstly, God is, God is One
*God is Good
* God is Spirit
*Omniscient
*Omnipresent
*Omnipotent*
God is the Author of life and faith* that which is intangible*
God’s Kingdom is Within* – and Without*

Α -Ω from beginning to end GOD IS ALL IN ALL –  Both the Author and the Finisher.

The Book of John 17    The Book of Isaiah Chapter 44 – Hebrews 12: 1-3

Correct?  headscratch

Energy:  Energy is neither created nor can it be destroyed.

” If Energy cannot be created or destroyed and all matter is a form of energy, then all must be a form of God.
ef5f0f32c39ac405a4cf2032e9cc0ab9

Ask the Van !

I’m not so sure about how to look at this since we are said to be separated from God by sin. If this is true, that we are separated by sin, then in some way, we must be  reconciled and resurrected  back to life, because God can not die. ??  ??   yes?

Consider then if you will, that true life then begins at the end.
That is to say, begin with the crucifixion for resurrection. Jesus is our example, the NT is the story of us, you and me.  When you realize your end (I die daily) you will find your beginning. Therefore, you must die to really live life at it’s fullest.  God knows the end from the beginning and all is complete.

The Big Quantum Equation

God fills the Universe, the air, the earth, the sea, all that is in them, you and me. God is in you and in me and outside of you and outside of me and yet we can not see God with our eyes, no, it is through our eyes that we see God’s creation in all.

Am I looking through my eyes? What do I see? Am I seeing what is, or what I choose to see?

The kingdom of God is within. In the depth of our being, we are one with God for the Father is in Jesus,  Jesus is in us, and we are one with the all in all, and yet we are unique, there is no one like you, no one like me. It’s extremely simple and profound, it blows my mind – YES!!  God is Spirit, intangible and yet everything you look at is a reflection of God even our own reflection. Whenever I see that newborn baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes, I see the most precious being that comes from the greatest mystery and has the breath of life. I am, we are looking at the face of God!

While attempting to feed my intellect, and configure my reality, I recently came across some teachings by a man named: Neville Goddard – He has an extremely interesting take on life, death, salvation, resurrection, spirit, body. If I understand what I am reading,  He taught that the Bible is not literal but figurative stories and the NT is the fulfillment of the OT and that Jesus Christ is the Lord who exists as our own, wonderful,  imagination. Reality through imagination. It is in our imagination that we create our world. That is to say, what we think on, our inner man (self-talk) manifests. You are (and you get) what you dwell on. This holds us fully and completely responsible. This is revelatory and when God reveals Christ within, that is when we are born again we can and will perceive. Here is a link for many of Neville’s Recordings
neville_goddardThey sound really far out, but taking a closer look much of it make sense.

Have you found the newborn child in you?  If you can not answer that then keep looking, never stop looking until know, and you will know beyond all doubt and no one will be able to talk you out of it, nothing shall by any means hurt you again.

We have an external witness and an internal witness,( Hmmmm, two witnesses, interesting), there is something to that for sure. I’ll save that for another day.

That this life which we are conscious of is the valley of the shadow of death and we need not fear when we realize Christ in us, the hope of glory. 

Why is that so hard for us to accept that the Spirit life is true life ?

It is written; God humbled himself, (materialized/manifested in the world), robed in a garment,  that garment is flesh and blood  (Jesus=God personified), a precious beautiful garment that is your body.  God, through Jesus, shows us how He is the plan of salvation. When you realize (
real-ize) this you will be “born again”. The Christ within you will be born, you will die and be resurrected and the ascension will take place. You grow upward from the inside out, leaving behind all the base and evil things, death will never touch you again, we are ever expanding life in Christ, Lord of Lords.  The first Adam is of the earth, earthy, the second Adam is the Lord from heaven, the Lord is a life-giving Spirit.  Your mind is spirit where reality resides.

Note to self: God alone is the true judge.
Be ever so careful to mind your thoughts bring them into subjection.
“For the wages of sin is death (judgment between good and evil), but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (eternal life).  -Think about what you are thinking about and choose life, choose good, choose love.

Everlasting life is a present-tense possession. The scriptures tell us in Deuteronomy God says: I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse (Good & Evil).

Thankfully, we get to start fresh every day and we can be true to ourselves while we are learning and moving closer to our purpose for being because God’s mercies are new every morning and longsuffering we can trust completely while exploring these big questions of life.

What do you love the most? Let everything be done out of love.
 
You’ve heard it all your life (if you were raised in a “Christian” atmosphere that is), but, are you listening? Do what you love and you’ll love what you do. Find your passion.   Choose nobility, and altruism, imagine, embody, and appropriate your loves. This is what it is to show our faith by works. James letter to the saints states: As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead
(James 2).  

 But seriously friends, what do I know?

Song for today: Late Lament – The Moody Blues –
“Late Lament”

 

Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament,
Another day’s useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.
Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white.
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion?

 

Riddle Me This . . .

I Am Complete In Him  

tumblr_mvebn6ufgn1svx0yxo1_1280


O
h,  if people really knew what that means. I Am complete in Him. If people realized and awakened, had a revelation of what that means,  there would never be another death or war, another struggle for power, no more sorrow, or pain or tears. Our lights would shine so bright we would need no sun.

I believe that one day, all mankind will realize – I Am Complete in Him who is the head of all  principalities and power.

Heck Bullwinkle !

I barely have a glimpse and I’m so blown away I can’t articulate it, IMAGINE !

What would you say is the most important word  in that last sentence?  

I Am?
No, technically that is a Name and it is two words.

How about I?  is it I?
No, that’s right up there at the top but for the purpose of this blog, not the answer I was looking for. Please,  read it again  and dive a little deeper.

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

Into every life some rain must fall – H.W.Longfellow put it this way –

The Rainy Day

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

MONEY – Time to stop wanting and start asking for it.

images

Rejoice in the prosperity of others, wish them all good things,  and you will grow wealthy yourself.

MONEY (That’s what I want) LennonMcCartney
 The best things in life are free
But you can give them to the birds and bees – I WANT MONEY! 
Your 3140a267c1099a36cfd7a62572281a12loving gives me a thrill, But your loving don’t pay my bills – Now give me MONEY . . .  Lord knows the Beatles made plenty of money for many people, and will continue to do so for years to come. I’m pretty sure that these men were just doing what they loved. 

“The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation.” Mark Twain
Do what you love and you’ll have plenty.    I thought that I believed that. But today, just today, I realized I had it all
wrong !    WHAT? Yes, all wrong.I have faith, I give and work hard, but still, in my heart, I have a bad attitude toward money. I’ve been so wrong.

Money is a thing, money is not good or bad in and of itself.
Yes, this I know, or I thought I did.  Things are neither good or bad, they just are. God has given us all things richly to enjoy. Covetousness, on the other hand, is not a thing it is an evil state of want. Remember, As you think and feel so are you. Greed and jealousy can and will only bring destruction.

“Surely vexation kills the fool, and jealousy slays the simple.”  ~Job 5:2

I realized today  while riding through town I grew up in. The town has tripled, I think. Where there used to be farmland and swamp I see all these brand new homes with manicured yards, sidewalks, nice cars,  and I say aloud; Where did all this money come from?  I was jealous, I was wrong to be jealous. I have been angry and felt cheated.

But you know what?     That is a lie.

Yes, I’ve worked so hard and put so much effort into trying to make things happen that I ended up needing a triple bypass and having heart failure. All the striving, and envy, and work nearly killed me. So, I’ve decided to die, because I know in dying I will live. That is I lay down trying to earn God’s favor because I’ve had it all along and didn’t even realize it.  That’s it, I give up!

The truth is, I have everything I need. It’s time to expand my borders because good and beautiful is coming my way in abundance, and in a hurry. Money, houses, cars, these “things” are just that, things. With the right attitude, I already have “it”, I have all I need.  I’m going to start living like it.  This world, the one we see with our eyes, touch with our skin/hands, smell, hear, taste, this is all temporal, it’s passing away. Even our bodies come to pass, but our Spirit that will never die.  Yes, I have work to do, and a lot to learn, but now I’m looking at it from a whole new perspective, a completely different lens. I’ve never been afraid of hard work. I love to work. I have no one but myself to blame for my mistakes, wrong thinking or wrong choices and neither, do you, Do you?

The LORD says: Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

I say: Come in LORD, you are welcome here all I have is yours, it has always been yours and always will be.  Welcome home.

 

Today I change my thinking about money. Today, while it is called today I plant the seeds of plenty, wealth, and luxury. I am poised and ready to be blessed above and beyond all I could ask for or think of.

  I   L O V E   M O N E Y !          I   L O V E   M O N E Y !               I   L O V E   M O N E Y ! 

I resolve to create a new life one little thing at a time, by grace and generosity and thankfulness.  I resolve to pray and meditate, to  think on things pure, virtuous, whatever is good. I resolve to Love, forgive, embrace life, to have fun, vibrancy, joy, patience, kindness, to be a blessing and help to those around me. As a matter of fact,  I am asking for so much money that it is a pleasure to give 90% away and still live comfortably on the remaining 10%. I’m asking for health, wealth, and prosperity.   I let go and I’m waiting to see what God will do.

And money? Well,  I ask for more than enough money to give me a home near the lake or the park, with a pool and some place to swim. Enough for tile floors and high-quality counters, fixtures etc.. Enough to have my laundry sent out and delivered back to me clean, pressed and folded. Enough to have good quality utensils, tools, and cooking material.  Enough to eat the best  fresh fruits and veggies, to shop at the corner stand, the Farmers Market, and Whole Foods, and Trader Joes. . . To eat seafood twice a week. I want this for me, for my children, my family, and friends and all the others too.

Let’s go live the abundant life.

This is from the “Chicken Soup for the Soul guys” :

 The formula for success is available now.
Yes, the law of attraction, yadda, yadda, yadda . . .  ReThink it!
BIG LOVE lil’ gini.
