The lack of strength is a consequence of not living with God. If we complain about not having enough power or strength to do Gods will, then it is because we do not follow his will. on the other hand, even the evil is sometimes powerful and sometimes acceptance of lack of strength is also Gods will. maybe it is not a lack of strength but acceptance that I should focus on something else, something for what I shall have the strength. the problem with the will is that all people want to follow God, it is our nature, but we always clash with His will. we complain about not knowing his will but in most cases we have he will but focus rather on what we want. Accepting my weekness is letting God into my life. The exhaustion or depletion of strength is very often a consequence of pride-God helps us so that we do not sin more with pride than we do.
Devil hates us because we resemble God. In the first place we must accept God, than we start fighting evil. we should not focus on looking for evil in order to destroy it. we should try to find what good we can do. preocupation with evil does not help because we see evil only when we let it come into our life.
Children need four things in their growin up: Safety, Love, Value, Acceptance. Anything else is redundant, anything less is compensated with alternatives-drugs, promiscuity.
Faith is intrinsic reliance on God
Salvation is our entelechy and its free. all we should do is that this greates thing that we can get in this world is free- accept that someone loves us so much that He gives this to us for free-accept that someone may love us so much. this acceptance is the most difficult thing because it requires unconditional fall into Gods arms. We must accept the truth that we are the most valuable person to Him. We must also accept that the dignity of man is for everyone else the same as for us-in Gods eyes, Gods truth.
Stand strong on the ground, but have your heart in heaven
a big anger can lead to a big self reconciliation. Sometimes it is better to let our inner evil out rather than trying to hide it and then know myself under new conditions, in new situation. on the other hand, we should not use the weapons of the enemy-eg anger in order to clean ourselves from evil, it is inevitablet that we shall fall into devils trap if we do so regularly. the burst of anger must be in order to clean myself, not egoistically hurt myself or others.
Fear is what hinders us from anything and everything good.
Confession is quite a new thing. People in the time of Christ and after His crucification did not have many occasions to confess, yet if they admited their guild, their sins were lost. same today, confession is the last step that we take in order to clean ourselves officially, but the first and foremost step is in our hearts. We must admit our failure, forgive others but ourselves as well, which is very often more difficult. maybe we should not be so much preocupied with who is better and who is worse but who really cares about well being and good.
Jesus promised to be with us till the end. He also said that we should build communities and spread evangeline. These are things that we with certainty know we should do. Evangeline is partly inhibition of our freedom, but it is giving our freedom in order to be near to God. We cannot force people to get rid of freedom, it is even more important than proximity of God because without freedom noone can choose to come to HIm. on the other hand, we should not be afraid to talk about God in front of other people and also in confrontation, but never forcefully. Everyone has the right to be with God and so that it is our duty to spread evangeline. We should not think that because we are weak we do not have to spread it , but it is false.God shall give us the strength. Faith as well as Love proliferates when it is talked about and given away. The more one gives, the more one has. The more good we are, the more strength to be good we get from our Father in heaven. We should not think that we can save the world or people around us, after all, it is all about saving our soul. nevertheless, we should be ready to help other to save their souls.
The grace of God is given to us for free. It is the greatest good that we can imagine.
The gates of Gods gracefulness on some sacred places are a bit paradoxical because in order to get mercy we should be clean. Should not it be vica versa?
There is no need to call God names, because ˋHe´does not have sex, male or female, we cannot grasp him by our desire to name things.
Is what I want to say important? what should I say so that it is not redundant? The need to say it is the justification of saying it. Stop thinking about whether it is good or not. if I consider it truth, then stop thinking about possible side effects of such utterance.
Idolatry is not only things, real material entities, like food or body but also thoughts. Envy, pride, anything that occupies my mind unnecessarily. Gods justice is incomprehensible for us, it is something we imagine. His righteousness is absolute, for us unimaginable.
Faith without love is uselesss. Faith is a gift, whereas Love is our choice. If one apostazises, it is not a loss of faith, it is a willing and conscious choice to stop loving. If one holds some church prescripts, for example sex prior to marriage as right and for some reason gives up his religion, then holding to it even without religion is a proof of ones faith.
Is there a need for fear of God, religion? we should not fear God, only ourselves. The more restiction, the more recidivity, there is not point in forbidding something, there is only point in explaining everything.
We should acknowledge that we shall fall once or again, but if we have the support in God, we shall be sure he wont let us fall down.
A spiritual guide does not go in front of me, behind me but ,d does not follow or lead but goes right next to me. he envisions consequnces of my deeds, tells me so but leaves the decision on me
Do not be afraid of new things and challenges, God shall not let you fall down.
There should be no difference between what I should do and I want to do. All unhappiness arises from this incongruence.
If we listen to God, he shall show us they way.
Forgiving myself is more difficult than forgiving others. It is basically self un-love, if I do not love myself then I do not let God love me.
One should not be afraid of saying God what the one wants, but after all, God should be the one that says what yes and what not. If what I want does not happen, then it is either bad for me, or I shall get it later, or God has something better for me.
Every thought that comes out of my heart is a good prayer.
When I want to change what I dislike in other, I first must change myself.
Why should I wake Jesus up when he sleeps on the boat in the storm, just b eing with him and trusting Him is essential.
When someone is unsympathetic to me, then I do not sin, this is natural. Only if I let it go into something negative, into hurting that person, then I sin.
The orange tree asked the almond tree to show him Gods presence and the almond tree blossomed.
