Empire of Illusion
God must not be a second hand experience.
I always ask myself why there were two trees in the garden. Obviously that shows us the importance that “Free Will” has in God’s very eyes.
We are surrounded by thousands of ways on how to find “relief”; others would call it roughly: reinforcement. Male or Female, there is not difference. The goal of most of the world around us is to create in us the “need” for it. We happily paid for the chance to suspend reality. Once we tie ourselves into this cycle, there is not way to ever recover from it by ourselves alone. We found then ourselves chasing vapors. Our brain real state has been High jacked. The mental landscape of our citizens is robed. The Empire of Illusion had deceived our brain.
Nothing that we consume bounces, (think, watch, talk, eat, etc). Nothing. So we must govern ourselves and since is not easy, we must do it with God. To change our thinking in order to create those Neurological Consequences that make us live a better life. My point is clear, thru God; there is the power on knowing the healthy way, the profitable way. The legitimate solution to my: hunger, anger, loneliness, tiredness, sadness, stress, scared, shame, sickness. The legitimate solution is choosing God every day on every situation.
There it is: CHOICE. Faith vs. My Experience? Choose Faith, to Believe.
Is not enough in trying to be a nice human being, but we are to take responsibility on how we wire our brain, in order to perceive from the same account. And all is born from our BELIEVES. To vulnerability there is a God that loves us very much no matter what. Most of the people you talk to would said that they live what they profess. Although by observing at their lives you would notice that their believes is what carry them that far. Choosing to Believe the right thing then is a hard way. But once you are there it gets more easier. To presume that God loves us is a good thing. Imagine: I tell you your parents love you, but you are not convinced until you know it thru them. Right? The same is with God. He does love us. Some things we believe by faith, some others by understanding thanks to intimacy, some others believes come stronger thru experience. Experience God, His Word, most importantly…His LOVE. His Embrace.
With God unable to express this love to you there is nothing. God is free, but we need to trust what He says in His word. It is TRUE. God must then not be a second hand experience. All people are looking for relief in face of a cruel world, but in the core there is an enormous cry to experience God. With Him, we do not need to run for anything else. Only Him is enough. He is Enough!
All is permissible, not all is profitable to your life or mine.
In the world there still two tress to choose from. It is obvious whatever you turn nowdays. We still builded in the way we should walk in life. But we must every day walk intentionally with God for Him to make out of us those man and women we desperately want to be. To receive Him and then be able to make better choices every single day.
My feelings don’t dictate reality, neither the judgment of others. Ignorance and Apathy are our enemies.
Lastly, we all are RESPONSIBLE for shaping the culture. Lest do it in the right way. The way of God. Driving Change must be in our DNA. Lest work hard again! I am choosing an intimate relationship with God.
How about you today?
