It will come!

Ola!..

Revin' up my bloggy here..just a peek inside this cybie home..My Monday morning is lined up with the pretty trails of domestic "to do list."....Ah' yes...the bliss of life...ha!ha!...I wonder how everyone is...I hope you all are fine. I can't cybie hop just yet...maybe tomorrow...

I'm starting my Monday on a peaceful note...been hearing messages of love and hope the whole week through. I truly think the universe wants to affirm certain things to me. Just last night at the vesper service, the pastor spoke about how practical it is to be "quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger."...

That was a lovely message.

He tried to drive home the point of how thinking before speaking can prevent so many of the conflicts we get mired into. Amen! Then he proceeded to tell how God orchestrated circumstances so he himself could live what he was preaching about. He realized how short he was of the "standards" set by the Book..However, being aware of the verse...really being aware.... made him gain a measure of restraint.

Restraint...hmmm

At dinner following the service, I told my hubby that though the verse is of course true to its spirit...it would prove to be very difficult for anyone to consistently and with restraint live.." slow to speak..." The nature of man is to center on himself and to absorb whatever another is saying as a direct opinion on his person, even if it isn't so....

I believe only a person who has conquered his self centered ( ego) nature can blissfully be "slow to anger.."A person must first see himself as detached from the physical body that he possesses and comprehend his divine nature as being eternal...then one can let go of fear..and the need for constant self preservation...the need to always be on the defense to protect reputation...feelings..emotions...Yes..emotions such as anger..and guilt...and the need to constantly prove something...

Realizing yourself sets free...free to to see another human being as a divine person....free..to see..to hear..to emphatize....to love...

Love is everything....Love allows one to die for someone else...no..not necessarily physically...What I mean is..a person who has love inside has allowed his ego or selfish pride to die to itself in order to see someone else....and in the process of the ego perishing..is the sprouting of full life...

nya'..hee!..hee!,,,hee!..Snooks..what writing on a Monday morning!!...

Anyways..I intend..I affirm that my whole week will be with Love...I shall devote it to doing kindness to myself...and to all those around me....I know I will get Love in return...I also expect a nice surprise this week...I don't know what it will be...a hug..a kind word...a gift..I dunno'....


I just know it will come...:>>

Ah, what I would have given to take back some of the things I have said impulsively. Still, I would give more to go back and have a chance to say some of the things I wish I would have said at the time.

I guess that's one of the perquisites of wisdom, the knowledge of when to speak, and when not to; when to act rashly, and when to tread with caution.

Anyway, it's good to see you back.

It sounds like everything is going swimmingly for you. Enjoy your week.

it would indeed be hard to show constant restraint within one's life.
..and you are right...it is so easy to take whatever another person says so very personally even when it was not meant that way. proper communication is hard. listening with an unbiased open ego-free heart is even harder.
.......ech, man, all this makes me realize that i have a ton of work to do on myself.
