It’s Time for a Change

It’s time.

Now is the time for us to change the world. Too many of us sit back and do nothing while the world as we know it is falling apart. It may not seem that way to alot of people, but that is the truth.

To all of the ones  who have been patiently waiting for the time to emerge, this is it. We are being called by God to do what we came here to do. You know who you are, and most importantly, God knows who you are.

With everything that has been, and is going on in the world it seems as if there is no hope, that nothing will change and things will keep going on this way until we destroy ourselves. “The more things change, the more they stay the same”. We’ve heard that most of our lives, and it may seem to be true, but that is not the case.

We are here to take humanity to the next level, to the New. We must not delay, we must quietly go out and do our work, not looking to our left or right; not listening to the naysayers, the fearful and the negative. It’s time is up.

We have learned that by using the Virtues, and them being our guiding star, we will not fail. We must not stop until it is finished and we will not be deterred, because we can see what awaits us…….. Victory!

Blindfolded: Spiritual Darkness

One of the most difficult, recurring themes of our lives is “Spiritual Darkness”

What is Spiritual Darkness? Contrary to what we think when we hear that phrase, or experience it firsthand, Spiritual Darkness is the time when God is closest to us. How can that be? He is so close to us, that everything seems to be darkness. He is so bright we can’t “see” anything, so we think it’s darkness.

During those times is when we grow the most,

that is the time to use the Virtues to help us find our way through the darkness, trusting that the clues He left for us will guide us to Him.

Those times in our lives is when we feel most alone, and it seems as if our connection with Him has been severed. We just need to strive all the harder to maintain our connection with Him. He is pulling us along, encouraging us to Trust Him, to find Him, and to Love Him.

Once we’ve matured to a point, that only God knows, when that theme comes around again, we are no longer groping around blindly for Him, but we are confident that the clues (Virtues) He left to illuminate our path to Him will be our guiding light.

Then we are no longer Blindfolded and we can see Him clearly.

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.

Become Fearless, Not Foolish

Justice is coming, and the only way we won’t get trampled underfoot is if we do what we were meant to do. We must use the Virtues to Become Fearless, Not Foolish.

When we abide by the Virtues, it helps us to change the way we see the world. When we use the Virtues, we see with clean hearts. The Virtues give us what we need to not be afraid to fight for the truth, and to fight for what we believe in, no matter the cost.

The Virtues protect us from becoming foolish and doing things hastily; carelessly. They shield us from wrong, from danger, from lies. They shed light on the darkness, they light the path in front of us.

Nothing negative can withstand the light of Truth, it must perish. For soon there will be no more darkness, no place for it to exist. And then, we’ll be free.

Become Fearless, Not Foolish.

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: Patience With Self

The Virtues have much to teach us.

Speaking gently to our hearts, they whisper words of wisdom inscribing them on our hearts so that we never forget, pondering on what we’ve learned and applying it in our everyday lives.

They tell us we need to have patience with ourselves, that it will take a little bit of time for us to learn what they have to teach us, perhaps a lifetime.

They also say that we can make it easier on ourselves if we just live our lives and let them teach us what we need to know, and we will automatically do it with no effort of our own.

It just takes a little Patience With Self.

The Journey From Nowhere: Turn It Into Reality

Now that we have the desire and the will to walk the narrow road which leads to our transformation, we must make it happen. Through the power of prayer, it can be made manifest.

We’ve called forth the Virtues to help us conquer any and all obstacles in our way, willing them to guide our thoughts, our choices, our lives, our reality.

Over a short period of time, we begin to notice some changes. We don’t worry as much about truly insignificant things, our health starts to improve because we are less stressed, more relaxed, and we don’t panic and make hasty decisions when something negative happens.

We may lose friends on this journey, even some we’ve had our entire lives. They can’t understand why you’ve changed, and they won’t listen when you try to explain. It’s hard to lose those friends, but we will gain other friends along this journey, from places and situations least expected.

We see people’s reaction to us, some are positive, some negative.  They stare, as if they are looking for something, or trying to understand what they see. They smile and start conversations, and seem to be in a much better mood when we finish talking to them. We see the power of the Virtues at work, and it encourages us to keep going.

With every step we take, we are closer and closer to our goal, we may not be able to see everyone who’s on this journey with us, but we can feel them. We need to pray for each other and the world, especially our enemies. You never know, even they might join us.

We are Turning It Into Reality.
