This delightful man, who looks like Santa Claus graced me with his words today.
Here are just some of the sparkling word gems he shared that brightened my spirit, and confirmed what I know to be True, what he defines as,
“This eternally present invisible presence – that which of course is completely unshaken by the dramas of this world.“
In the bible there are 365 references to don’t be afraid, fear not, one for every day of the year. The Bible is full of clever things like this.
When you’re sure of your identity with the Eternal, when you discover what man really is, which is Spirit, then the worries about the flesh they diminish. The Spirit gets stronger until you really just laugh at it.
Compared to bad thinking, all the chemicals and plastics in the world is peanuts.
This world is a shadow of Divine origin, it comes to pass just like a nightmare. It has no reality of itself. Its only real as far as we believe in it. That is the fact. When one person even has the foggiest notion of this, it somehow raises the general level of consciousness. Those that recognize it more fully help to raise it even more.
Those that fully realize the infinite nature of man, they lift the whole world.
You can find it, my dears. It’s well documented. I’m one of many, many who have realized it and I’m pleased to share it.
My brother told me about this new series on YouTube by Peter Santenello.
I am intrigued, as always, to learn how people devoted to God express their devotion in their own unique way. Having grown up in a town (Monsey, NY) that was populated with Hasidic Jews (a very small community back in 1965), it was my first introduction as a child to the culture and ways of this community.
This series was candid and sincere. For me, it was inspiring to witness how people continue to ensue traditions based on strong foundational truths.
There was a part in Episode 2 (there are 3 episodes) when a young boy spoke from his heart. His words, most of all, moved deeply the sense of God in my own heart:
7:25: “the sun is shining, wow”
18:06: “sometimes I can’t see the good, but I know its good”
Ultimately, we all share the same fear … THE FEAR OF DEATH.
Because it is unknown .
Because it is unseen.
Because we will no longer exist.
What if fear is NOT true?
What if we really don’t exist as truth in this form, but instead we are like dreamers in a dream?
If we believe in the dream, we take on the role of a player in the dream.
We are afraid of losing all of the dream-like experiences we call reality.
But if we acknowledge that we are the dreamers of the dream, we know we can only really Exist in the Creator of the dream.
When we establish an inner foundation – an inner stability – a trust that is always in the background of our knowing, we have access to an available well of certainty to remind us that the suffering of the world exists only in the egoic mind (the player in the dream), which finds itself separate from God (the Creator of the dream).
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore, we do not give up, but even if the man we are outside is wasting away, certainly the man we are inside is being renewed from day to day. For though the tribulation (trial) is momentary and light, it works out for us a glory that is of more and more surpassing greatness and is everlasting, while we keep our eyes, not on the things seen , but on the things unseen. For the things seen are temporary, but the things unseen are everlasting.
