Good gooood Morning!
An interesting conclusion to a problem I discovered for myself. Now you might have known this all along but for those who don’t here it is. When you get time for yourself, I mean real time, time that is not restricted by a certain length like an hour or a day, amazing things happen. When-enever I got a week to myself it always went the same. The first day and a half my body would purge itself, I’d find I was soo emotional! I couldn’t figure out why! Here I was soo excited to have this time to myself, I had planned to get this done and that, and I couldn’t because I was so emotional. Then the next few days were AWESOME! I’d feel more alive than ever, my brain could move and my body would relax. Then I’d freak out the night before my time was up, I’d get anxious. But the last day I was filled with such a peace and strength of renewal there was no mistaken that the environment that went away played such a part in weighing me down and zapping my energy, it was literally killing me from the inside out.
The other thing I noticed is that I would lose weight without changing anything but the way I breathed! My stomach wasn’t tied in knots, my back and neck weren’t stiff, sore and cringing every time I heard a noise. I started doing Qi Gong and found it an amazing cleansing of environmental toxins and toxic people who linger in my space.
But the point is this, we all need quiet unrestricted time to purge ourselves from every annoyance, scheduled this and that, bickering, routine, and just other peoples negativity. It is so wonderful to wakeup and hear NOTHING! It is so wonderful to sit where ever you want (inside or out) and know no one is coming in the door so you had better have this done or that. Now I know that is why people, mainly couples, take vacations, but you need to go by yourself -anywhere! Even if it’s in the same city. I know it seems like a foreign Idea and I would have been like “heck no I want my soo and so to come so we can both get away and spend some quality time together.” Ummm NO. Time together is not quality time for your mind and soul, two is a crowd when your trying to rejuvenate YOURSELF. And trust me after the second or third day (unless your a quick purger and I thought I was but it still takes me like 2 days) you will be so glad you are alone and there are no decisions to be made no thinking to be done, no time you have to be here or not be there. There is no conflict or wayne of interest. Your mind needs a break from that!
You know your mind is hardly your own! It belongs to the routines of the human world and to anyone else in your life. That is why when people grow up they forget how to be childlike, they forget how to use their imagination and energy. Remember way back when and you didn’t have a care in the world, you would go outside or play in your room for hours just creating things (building blocks, coloring, making tree forts, creating make believe villages in the grass using transformers, fisher price people and match box cars, or just reading for hours getting lost in a book taking your imagination to far off lands and worlds) and how when you get older that all fades away? For some people they carry that(their child like powers of imagination and creative thinking)into adulthood for their career and have you noticed they are still the most creative and happiest people?
When we fall away from who we are and give over half of ourselves to others, we become stale and narrow minded. I don’t mean in a mean or bad way, but we become less interesting to OURSELVES. To some extent we shut down the part of us that loves to learn and grow, explore and create-but most of all we lose our humor and our core (the “our self” we hung out with when we were little.)
Take some time away from it all to get back on track with yourself. It does wonders for your mind-it stimulates and recharges those creative energies and powers up our strength juices, that “lets do it, lets go, Yeee Haaa” kind of juices. And when your body relaxes you breath correctly and that stimulates your intestines by massaging them and moving the waste out, toxins stop clinging to your insides- So you lose weight without even trying!…IT DOES YOUR BODY GREAT!!! and you get to just be your whole self again and when you re-enter into your environment or it re-enters into yours, you can tell if it is, or who is a positive force and who is a negative force in your life and you can and NEED to adjust accordingly so it is all positive and you won’t h be dragged down over and defueled over the course of the next year,waiting for the next vacation to come! Who knows you could be dead! And you want to live your best right now-everyday!
P.S you’ll be able to get back on track with what God wants for you too! To much “noise” and we totally miss His messege-Don’t let the devils that plague our life every single day consistently interrupting our Spirit- get you down!
“3” So I have to get back to the subject I started on about how God opened my eyes and what has happened since. Well I’ll skip forward to the last few months. Never in my life had I asked for Jesus’ help in any decision, big or small that I had made. And for sure every time, every big decision I made whether it was making a purchase or dating someone it always ended in disaster, I’d regret the purchase and rue the day I met that specific person. I’d wring my hands, fall on my knees and beg the question WHY!
Well He said
“hey you talk to me you pray and thats all honkyee doree but you do it AFTER the act, how the heck can I guide you when you go off on your own and do your own thing!”
WOW! when my eyes where open I saw how ridiculous I had been with everything in my life. actually reckless is a more fitting word! So I began to ask Jesus for help in guiding me, and if I wanted something, nooo exaggeration I’d ask for help about things that would seem to some people as insignificant . But!!! My gosh! How easy things would fall into place. In a sense I cut out all the middle men (stress,worry, indecision..ect..) that would take up my time during the day and I’d say “I leave it in Your hands” and I’d do x y or z, leave it. And for the first time in my whole life things flowed positivly and easily!
We are not supposed to make decisions on our own because we are guided by a wonderful most powerful God and if we leave him out of our decision making then we “act the fool” and get junky merchandise and junky relationships!
So if your throwing your hands up to heaven and saying “WHY!!!!!!” check to see If you asked for some guidance first, I guarantee a happier, free-er life if you are!
It really doesn’t seem possible that in this “modern world full of brilliantness” that there are millions, MILLIONS of hungry, jobless, homeless stressed out sick humans! How do you “lose” your house! That should be an unanswerable question.
You get some land (freely given to us by God, only man would charge for something given to them for free) build a house, grow your food, and keep your environment clean. Yes clean because you don’t “poop” in a glass and give it to your kid at dinner do ya? Didn’t think so yet that’s what we do everyday only we dump our poop in waters so we don’t have to look at its grossness..sorry off track! Anyway Bing bang boom! There you go happy people living life under their own hand.
But you throw some paper labeled different degrees of valuable by the number on it and you get a ridiculously hard life full of outrageously stupid and deadly side effects caused by a puny piece of paper we all worship and are historically and presently bound in chains because of it.
Freedom, liberty and justice for all should not come with a P.S attached with xyz times a trillion attachments.. It’s so crazy how our countries fundamental beliefs are founded on “buts” and clauses, P.S’s and except for’s that cause a whole nation (the whole world) such grief. Now what would you rather worship? Something that proves over and over through out history just how much suffering it causes or God? Whose amazing grace has saved more humans and spread more love than any other person, law, thing or subject you could retort upon.
Polar Bears are the largest terrestrial carnivore, 2x as large as the Siberian TIger. A male can weigh up to 1,500 lbs while the females are half their size. Polar Bears have been seen playing for hours and sleeping in an embrace, otherwise they are pretty solitary creatures. 8 of the 19 bear subpopulation are in decline (I bet its more) as environmental stressors take its toll on them (along with every other species on this planet) Females can’t bring their cubs to term as they are unable to get to where they need to be (no ice means a lot of drowning) malnutrition, starvation and low healthy birth rate (hmm sounds familiar) are wiping these fabulous creatures out. We’ve got to stop cooking thier land.
“ug christians, they’re all such losers, what a bunch of whiners, I’m hurting, I’m sad, I’m broken.” …Yes I’ve heard people say that living God’s way is for losers. And to that I say , well show me one human on this earth who are not “losers.” We all have stumbled, we are all stumbling and we all will stumble sometime before we die. What human has not felt: pain, sorrow, regret, anger, disappointment, frustrations and confusion? We are all broken because none of us can claim perfect as a label. Following the path of God does not mean “giving up a fun life” on the contrary it is only when we discover the truth about God, Jesus and the Word that we also discover true freedom, liberation from the binds of modern and historical influences that chain our minds to narrow and selfish thinking. The power that comes with discovering the Word does not mean you will be instantly invincible, that you will never feel pain or sorrow again. It means that you will have a brand new way of dealing with what ever life throws at you, and that may mean more sorrows, because when your eyes are open you are able to see all the phonyness around you and you know that no amount of love or support you give out-that some people, maybe even some you love just will not “get it” and your just throwing caring words against brick walls. So you move on, you pray and ask for the blind to see and you go out there in the world with your armor made from the Word of God ready, steadiying yourself against those souls who achingly believe that to follow God is weakness—just walk on by and pray that someday their eyes will open to the freedom and power and awesomeness that it is and that they will get excited and inspiried by a new life which enables your Spirit to soar above the fog that keeps us stuck in the mud and stuck in the luke warm “religious” person syndrom.
Like a lot of you out there I grew up with a conflicted heart, who I was and who every one else thought I should be. I’ve wasted many years crying as I’d go over in my head the last days, months and years events that brought me such misery. I prayed to God to please show me what was wrong with me and why I was so weird and not like everyone else. The people who were in my environment and who where within the environments I created did such an outrageous job at convincing me that it was I who was the defected one and that it was I who needed help. I was always wrong always the cause of some problem, even if I was never even involved. The only reason I could think of as to why I was surrounded by such animosity was because I was strong. I excelled in art, sports, have a curious, logical mind that needs to solve, build and learn everything. I wasn’t mean, whiny or rude. I didn’t do anything so horrible that could cause so much punishment. But I had a strong sense of individuality and opinion. I saw the world differently, I saw the positives and the beauty and these traits no matter how much humans say those are good characteristics to have, they make people mad. I still don’t understand it. Anyway this is about how we can get so sidetracked from our destiny while still believing in the God we were taught about from within our environment and how a persons happiness absolutely depends on your environment but ultimately depends on just how free you believe you are.
What am I writing about? Well how if you are dealing with people and situations that are causing unhappiness and stress or confusement I might be able to shed some light on the situation. I’ve gone through so much hell and was constantly looking for answers everywhere but the place that held them -within my immediate and extensive family who I now apply the definition as an “intact dysfunctional unit” totally hidden from public view. I want to help people avoid hurt and who are settling for less because of their environment they believe is normal and because the world, with their own blinders on may say so. But most of all I want to share how I realized what damage people can cause when they are teaching about God and the Bible with total blinders on living by only what suits their needs. And what an enormous amount of power and freedom comes with knowing the truth.
