You are the One! β€οΈ


“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” — 1 Corinthians 13:11.

Lord GOD loves you more than any other being including you.

Please remember that when you feel less of yourself or when you feel alone.

Or when you begin to dislike self.

And it matters most that Lord GOD loves you the most!

Beware of human beings succumbing to evil and deception.

Please fear Lord GOD (fear wrongdoing and fear the consequences of wrongdoing).

Homeless, poor, despised, sad, sick, victimized, cheated, ashamed, afraid, abandoned, lost, hated, spurned, or even on death row, Lord GOD loves you when all others may not.

Please have the greatest faith in Lord GOD.

You are the one that Lord GOD loves in this life and beyond it.

Amen!

When one studies Buddhism, one studies oneself; when one studies oneself, one forgets oneself; when one forgets oneself, one is enlightened by everything and this very enlightenment breaks the bonds of clinging to both body and mind, not only for oneself but for all beings as well.– Dogen-Genjokoan.

When faced with the vicissitudes of life, one’s mind is unshaken, and it is free from sorrow, free from defilements, and free from insecurity. This is the highest blessing!

And having acted that way, everywhere undefeated and everywhere finding happiness. This is the highest blessing! Amen!

A Borrowed Life (Existence)

Β β€œNaked I came from my mother’s womb and naked I shall return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord” — Β Job 1:21.

This life is not ours.

Though we claim it as ours.

And we are the masters of our fate too.

Right??

Wrong!!

This life, we claim as ours, is a precious gift from Lord GOD.

And for a while, we act, we grow, we enjoy, …, we cry, we succeed.

And we eventually die (we return the gift).

It’s all providence, the Lord’s Domain.

Amen!

Dave.

Last Post: Goodbye and Best Wishes to All.

After almost two years of blogging and interacting with other bloggers, I am ending my subscription to WordPress on August 21, 2022. I have mixed feelings about that, but life goes on.

Thanks for the positive comments and for sharing your good blogs! πŸ‘βœŒ

‘Silence Stillness’ Poem by Philo Yan

Silence Speaks Peace…

Your mind lies down to sleep
And the soul begins to breathe
the magic in the air
At peace in silence stillness
soothing to the senses
as gentle as a breeze…

Let’s stop being passive consumers, but instead let’s become environmental-friendly consumers.

β€œNo problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.β€œ β€” Albert Einstein. πŸ‘βœŒ

If appearances are everything, then why we do throw away the packaging of a product after we consume its contents. Were we deceived?

If we are convinced that we were duped to purchase the product, and we do not want to recycle, or we are unable to recycle, then how do we proceed?

Let’s send the packaging back to manufacturers for recycling at a shared expense.

This can a beautiful solution to one of the biggest problems currently facing our planet. Recycling and disposal are both costly, though efficient methods for eliminating waste materials that could otherwise pile up or cause environmental damage in some form over time – what if there were an easier way? It seems as though many people would support such action because they don’t want any more packaging going into landfills where it takes millennia before being compacted down again by further accumulation on top; plus sending back unwanted packages means less paper consumption! If everyone agreed right now then this idea might just achieve mainstream success (and who knows how quickly innovation can spread). So let’s get started.

Moreover, let’s urge our government to take action too… Godspeed! πŸ‘βœŒ

About Life

Life is about getting from point A to point B and from one moment to the next while experiencing all the changes/circumstances in between.

We all have a destination, but life is about the journey. From one moment to another we experience change and circumstance as well as meet new people who help us on our way.


It’s not always easy being a human with so many different emotions that can sometimes make it hard for some people to try their best because there will always be something blocking them from reaching success which makes me think why bother? However, we must persevere and adapt with a positive attitude.

And remember life is a series of moments where you are pursuing your goals and aspirations, and changing with the times. Godspeed! πŸ‘βœŒ

Desire versus Lack of Desire

Desire may indicate a real need like the desire for nourishment/sleep/medicine to abate/alleviate hunger/thirst/fatigue/pain etc.

But desire may also indicate the need to feel more alive when we experience boredom or emptiness. So we may crave entertainment, sex, or other pleasant sensations. And the lack of desire may indicate contentment/dispassion or wisdom.

Beware some desires are unhealthy or dangerous for us and for others.

Often pleasant sensations may generate mental craving or greed while unpleasant sensations may generate anguish/aversion/disappointment.

The physical body (the cross we must bear while we are alive) will experience pain, but the mind need not amplify the pain with mental agitation. On the other hand, our negative thoughts/stress over time may make us worry excessively or feel very sad and cause harm (ulcers, high blood pressure, etc.) to our physical bodies.

So some desires are vital and healthy. And it takes discernment/patience/wisdom to overcome those negative desires. Meditation helps us develop control/contentment/peace/wisdom as we become mindful of how physical sensations affect our minds…

We are sensual beings, and we experience physical sensations constantly. And it is important how we skillfully react to them and to our thoughts/feelings associated with those sensations. Godspeed! πŸ‘βœŒ

WHO AM I?

All are one. And one is all. Everything/everyone counts (matters)! Amen! πŸ‘βœŒ

I am a speck (almost insignificant or almost irrelevant) within a speck within a speck, ad infinitum (almost nothing relative to Lord GOD). But I do matter! Thank Lord GOD! Amen! πŸ‘βœŒπŸ˜‚

Although I am just a speck within an eyelash of the Lord, I know that my existence is worth something to Lord because my Lord created me with a worthwhile purpose in mind. And the Lord cares about me and loves me. Amen!

Are we born to experience suffering and to cause suffering?

β€œThe world is afflicted by death and decay. But the wise do not grieve, having realized the nature (impermanence and unreliability) of the world.”

Link: Suffering

We all suffer. It’s an inevitable part of life. But what causes our suffering? The Buddha taught that it is our attachments and aversions that are the root cause of our suffering. We become attached to things that we like and averse to things that we don’t like. And when things don’t go the way we want them to, we suffer. The good news is that there is a way out of this cycle of suffering. The Buddha’s teaching on the noble eightfold path shows us the way to let go of our attachments and aversions and thus end our suffering. By following the path, we can attain freedom from suffering and find lasting peace and happiness. So if you’re looking for a way out of your suffering, look no further than the noble eightfold path. It’s the Buddha’s prescription for freedom from suffering, and it just might be what you’re looking for. Godspeed! πŸ‘βœŒ

Do you know evil (😈) when it touches you?

Satan rules the human world. May Lord Jesus Christ undo Satan’s work. Godspeed!

Never underestimate the power of Satan (the evil one). It dwells in both high places and low places and in between. It also thrives in some so-called holy places (some (not all) churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, etc.)

Satan is a great conqueror or divider of people. It exploits divisions/differences or discords/conflicts and hates unity/harmony/peace.

The evil one dwells and thrives in the hearts and minds of humans.

Very few are immune from the power or the influence of the evil one. It deceives/twists or corrupts or undermines the truth (the word of Lord GOD) to attack the believers of Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and Lord GOD or others who believe in Lord GOD.

Beware that the evil one will preach sin is okay. Hell (weapons of mass destruction, wars, dystopia, famine, disease, poverty, greed, crime, etc.) on Earth is acceptable, and that change is not necessary…

We pray in the name of Jesus that all are protected from the influence or power of the evil one (😈). Amen!
