Happy Birthday to Me

Hey! Hey!

How are you doing today?

It is my birthday, and I am 55, still alive. Double nickles!

At this very moment it is the day before my birthday but I'm compelled to write this post and send it out tomorrow, on my real birthday. But, I'll be on the beach meditating, napping, and swimming in the waves in between. The perks of living in Southern California.

Any who! I just wanted to share something dear and near in my heart that I have learned in my fifty five years of living and that is...

God is very real!

I know that this is so because I talk and walk with Him every single day of my life. I know Him because I know love.

"And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in Him," ~1 John 4:16, New Testament, Holy Bible, KJV

Another thing that is in my heart and I know for sure is it is absolutely possible to release the negative emotions like anger, anxiety, depression, and despair through this love, through God.

"But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." ~Matthew 19:26, New Testament, Holy Bible, KJV

When a person releases their negative emotions that stem from the human conditioning, which teaches us fear, a person can live a life of calm, confidence, and connection to God through faith, which is very much love.

"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." ~1 John 4:18, The New Testament, Holy Bible, KJV

The opposite of fear is faith, and I believe that perfect faith is love, which casts out fear. I think the opposite of love is torment, which is felt through anger, anxiety, and depression.

Anger is fear that one will not be okay if he or she doesn't get his or her way. But that person can and will be okay if he or she connects to God, to love.

Anxiety is fear of the future; fear created by the thoughts of doubt, fear, and worry, of the worst thing that may happen. But a person can and will overcome anxiety if he or she connects to God, to love.

Depression is fear that a person is not, and will not be good enough. But everyone is good enough and can, and will see the truth of their value and worth when he or she connects to God, to love. 

It takes practice and prayer, daily practice of prayers, and in loving the self and others, to overcome the fears of the world.

When we put our energy into talking and walking with God, eternal things become more important than earthly things. The human conditioning gives us the illusion that earthly things will make us happy, when the truth is that eternal love, our connection to God, is pure bliss. 

Everyone is reaching for calm, confidence, and connection to God, which gives way to unconditional love. Everyone wants to feel unconditional love but we cannot find it in earthly things. It is an illusion of the human conditioning.

That's all I got for my birthday ramble and what I know and have learned in my fifty five years here on earth.

I have cried every day, all my life. The tears that flowed the first half of my life were to rid of the suffering that did not belong to me. The tears that flow now are from the overwhelming feelings of bliss from the love that I feel from my connection to God.

There is no greater thing than talking and walking with God. That is the purpose of life really, to reconnect with and know God. That is the spiritual expansion we are here to obtain.

I love you dear friend.

I love you with all my heart and soul.

I am ever praying for your connection to God and the blissful feelings of His unconditional love.

Take good care...

Speak soon...
