How Women See Themselves vs. How Others See Them

This video is very eye opening. So many women are plagued by a very negative view of themselves based on their looks.

Women are the same all over the world. It is time they see and love themselves as others do.

Love Yourself Properly

Love yourself, it’s actually not that hard to do.

You must get rid of all of the pre-conceived ideas you have about yourself. A lot of who you think you are is not you.

The vast majority of us think negatively about ourselves. Why is that? Where does it come from? That is a subject for another post.

The reason we don’t love ourselves properly is because we don’t know who we really are.

We measure ourselves by the rules of the world. Our conditioning has taught us that we are not worth anything, unless we are:

Pretty

Handsome

Smart

Rich

Sexy 

and Hot

We can go on and on with the superficial way of life that we are taught is life. 

There are so many layers; masks that we wear, that we have gotten confused. 

Just use the Virtues to peel back the layers, take off the masks of superficiality, and see what’s underneath. We don’t know why people are afraid to do this, why do we run away from ourselves? Are we afraid of what’s behind the masks?

Why do we have to have the radio on all the time? The TV? ipod®?

Talking on the phone constantly, playing games, etc.,  we never have any quiet time. It’s just noise, it attempts to drown you out, drown the Virtues out, drown God out.

We need to not be afraid to know ourselves, to find out who we really are. We aren’t as bad as we hear in our heads all the time.

Just do it. Go inside, communicate with yourself, you will be very surprised at what you find 🙂 Trust that this is the right time; don’t delay.

Love yourself properly.

An Old Chinese Poem

Go to the people

Live among the people

Learn from them

Love them

Start with what they know,

Build on what they have.

But the best leaders,

When their task is accomplished,

Their work is done,

The people will remark,

“We have done it ourselves.”

We think this exemplifies what we are doing here on this blog, igniting our light for the world to see, and in so doing, igniting others. — IKB

The Journey From Nowhere: Treasures (In Heaven)

We are almost at the end of our journey, we can barely make out what is at the end of the narrow road. The veil is starting to thin, we start to get excited, and we get a boost of energy. But we can’t get ahead of ourselves, we still have road in front of us.

This journey is not a contest to see who can get there first. We all need to tough it out. The end is usually the hardest, but the reward is the greatest.

The Virtues have purified us, they have set the stage for what we need to complete our journey, and for life afterwards. Grace is the Treasure we will, and have already started to receive and give to everyone we meet. God has a “Storehouse of Graces” to give to all who are willing to do what He asks.

He says to us, “Trust in ME, now is the time for great graces. Act with LOVE, do all things with LOVE, and your Treasures (In Heaven) will be great.”

The Journey From Nowhere: Obedience to Will of God

Now that we have learned Patience,

we feel much freer, the pressures we’ve put on ourselves have disappeared, and the burdens we carry seems to have lightened. We walk faster, with more confidence, and that begins to show itself to others.

We have been given a mission: To let our light shine for the world to see, to Ignite our Light, and Let it Burn Bright.

Our Transformation affects not only us, but whoever we interact with, anyone who sees us, and in turn they affect who they come in contact with and so on. LOVE is the reason for everything we do.

We have shown through our actions, just by taking this journey, Obedience to the Will of God. We have united our wills to His and He will lead us to the Promised Land.

Obedience to Will of God… This is fun!

The Journey From Nowhere: Cherish Life, Not Death

We’ve come to the midpoint of our journey, and now is a good time to pause for a minute to catch our breath. We start to reflect a little on where we are, versus where we’ve been. We have come a very long way in a very short amount of time, and we get stronger with each step we take.

We hear the words, “Cherish Life, Not Death”, said in a strong voice, which we understand is a command. We have life because of Love, and since Love is the reason we have life, we happily obey.

Our rest over, we continue down the narrow road which leads to everlasting life. The chorus of a song  enters our minds, “Cherish the love, Cherish the life, Cherish the love.” It’s a song that is easily recognized by us, and it makes our steps a little lighter. With the song playing in our head, we start to walk a little faster, picking up our pace,settling into a nice rhythm.

Cherish Life, Not Death.

If you’ve never heard the song before, or would like to hear it again:

The Heart

If we truly want to change and transform ourselves into beacons of light, we must, Pray from the Heart, Think from the Heart, so we can Live from the Heart.

We must cleanse our hearts of every error, judgement, evil intent, grudge, hurt, despair, etc. In a word, negativity.  Whatever we hold in our hearts influences our actions, the way we are perceived, the energies we project to the world. Anything that is opposed to the Virtues must go.

  • Pray from the Heart: When you do this, you pray deeper, with conviction, strength, and passion. Through the power of your prayers, you will make your transformation into a Being of Light/Light Bearer/Beacon of Light, much easier, faster, and with practice, permanent.
  • Think from the Heart: When we do this, our thoughts change, we understand things differently than we ever have before. Confusion ends, our thoughts become clearer, with less interference, less distractions. When we Think from the Heart, we LOVE.
  • Live from the Heart: When we do this, the Virtues are so deeply embedded in our being, that we cannot help but to be Light Bearers to the world. We will change the world for the better. Nothing can stop it.

This is a process that takes time. We should not do things in haste, but with a sense of urgency. We must dedicate ourselves to learning the Virtues, and putting them into practice until they become a part of us, and we share them with the world.
