Happiness, an Inside Job. Felicidad, un Trabajo Interior.

leave a comment »

If you have a leaky facet in your house so you cut the lawn, take the garbage out and sweep the driveway,
it won’t solve the leak. Doing the wrong thing faster, better or with kingdom values will not solve the problem.
Trying to solve an inside problem by working outside is just a dumb idea.

Happiness is an inside job! If you are unhappy on the inside nothing you do on the outside will solve it….
People are often under the illusion that they will be happy when; they get married, pay off their debt, get their
degree, win that competition, have children, write that book or move to a certain city etc…But the truth is that
internal problems can not be fixed with external solutions.

Many marriages are destroyed by this illusion; Johnny doesn’t make me happy. After 15 years of marriage Mary still doesn’t turn me on. NO ONE can make you happy! It is humanly impossible to make someone happy.Whenever we make our happiness the responsibility of a person, accomplishment or a possession; we have just created an idol. The saddest part of all this is that this misplaced responsibility only takes us deeper down the road of emptiness.

The kingdom of God is not eat or drink but righteous, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Living guilt free,
peaceful and happy is only obtain by cultivating a deep relationship with the Holy Spirit. Our inner God void can never be filled from a outside source any more than your leak in your facet can be solved by cutting your lawn. Happiness is n inside job and only someone who lives in the house can solve the issues that reside there. Get happy and then live it out loud!

Si tu tienes un caño que esta goteando en tu casa y tu cortas el grass de tu jardin, sacas la basura y trapeas el estacionamiento, eso no resolvera la gotera. Haciendo lo equivocado de forma mas rapida, mejor o con valores del reino no resolvera el problema. Tratar de resolver un problema interior trabajando desde afuera es una idea tonta. La Felicidad es un trabajo interior! Si tu eres infeliz en el interior nada que hagas desde afuera lo resolvera…La gente esta siempre bajo la ilusion de que ellos seran felizes cuando; ellos se casen, pagen todas sus deudas, obtengan su titulo, ganen la competencia, tengan hijos, escriban ese libro o se muden a una cierta ciudad etc… Pero la verdad es que los problemas interiores no pueden ser reparados con soluciones externas.

Muchos matrimonios son destruidos por esta ilusion; Juancito no me hace feliz. Despues de 15 años de matrimonio Maria no me enciende. NADIE puede hacerte feliz! Es humanamente imposible el hacer a alguien feliz. Cuando sea que nosotros hacemos nuestra felicidad la responsabilidad de una persona, logro, o una posecion; nosotros hemos creado un idolo. La parte triste de todo es que esta responsabilidad puesta equivocadamente solo nos lleva mas abajo hacia la ruta del vacio total.

El Reino de Dios no es el comer y el beber pero la justicia, paz y gozo en el Espiritu Santo. Vivir fuera de culpa, en paz y feliz solo es obtenido cultivando una profunda relacion con el Espiritu Santo. Nuestro vacio interno de Dios nunca puede ser reemplazado por un medio externo como tampoco una gotera en tu caño puede ser resuelto por cortar el grass de tu jardin. La Felicidad es un trabajo interior y solo alguien que vive en la casa puede resolver los asuntos que residen ahi. Se feliz y luego vivelo al maximo!

Things It Takes Most Of Us 50 Years To Learn

leave a comment »

1. The badness of a movie is directly proportional to the number of helicopters in it.

2. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

3. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.

4. There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.”

5. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

6. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be “meetings.”

7. The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.

8. You should not confuse your career with your life.

9. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter/janitor, is not a nice person.

10. When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is crazy.

Boys In Hospital

leave a comment »

The two young boys were discussing their ailments together in the children’s ward.

“Are you medical or surgical?” asked the first, who had been in the ward for a week.

“I don’t know what you mean,” replied the second.

“It’s simple,” replied the first.

“Were you sick when you came in here? Or did they make you sick when you got here?”

Rapid Promotion

leave a comment »

The boss called one of his employees into the office.

“Rob,” he said, “you’ve been with the company for a year. You started off in the post room, one week later you were promoted to a sales position, and one month after that you were promoted to district manager of the sales department. Just four short months later, you were promoted to vice-chairman. Now it’s time for me to retire, and I want you to take over the company. What do you say to that?”

“Thanks,” said the employee.

“Thanks?” the boss replied. “Is that all you can say?”

“I suppose not,” the employee said. “Thanks, Dad.

Work Virus

leave a comment »

There is a new virus going around, called “work”. If you receive any sort of “work” at all, whether via email, internet or simply handed to you by a colleague…DO NOT OPEN IT.

Work has been circulating around our building for months and those who have been tempted to open “work” or even look at “work” have found that their social life is deleted and their brain ceases to function properly.

If you do encounter “work” via email or are faced with any “work” at all, to purge the virus, send an email to your boss with the words “Sorry…I’m off to Home Depot.” The “work” should then be automatically deleted from your brain.

If you receive “work” in paper-document form, simply lift the document and drag the “work” to your garbage can. Put on your coat and skip to the nearest cafe with two friends and order three double chocolate espressos. After repeating this action 10 times, you will find that “work” will no longer be of any relevance to you.

Send this message to everyone in your address book. If you do not have anyone in your address book, then I’m afraid the “work” virus has already corrupted your life.

Mastering Chihuahuas 2

leave a comment »

There is a point of connection with God in every situation. The release of this communication would cause for us to walk on The Legitimate Experience, and not on a copy.

For all people is easier to walk according to “feelings”. In time I have learned that the way we feel doesn’t dictate what is right and what is wrong. Feelings don’t dictate Morality.

So, how can I ever rely in the way that I feel to respond in every situation? Never.

Confidence in God is not earned by my “Good Works”. My good works must only be the result of that relationship with Him. Confidence in God comes from TRUST. From trusting in all we read about Him in the Bible, and from everything we heard Him said. Can you believe that there are lots of types of Bibles? Yeah. The devil did some work to get God out of our heads, and out of our hearts. But if you want to ever BE the best of you…Just as you would with a Lover, then you MUST pursue Him. God plays no tricks, He is a true LOVER.

I once heard that God created this awesome venue called “feelings” to explain to us what I must need to give relief to. But how about going thru a season of waiting “something” and just have to wait? Neither food, sex, money, any kind of fun can solve the main issue. Yeah, right! Every one of the above would find its appropriate time and way to be expressed; jet is not thru them that we find the answer to the quest. Only God has all answers. I’m not talking about never do those things in the right context; all I’m saying is that you can just put enough water in the cup, and wait until you put it again. That’s all.

In essence, what it is a Chihuahua anyway?

Wrong thoughts. See, wrong thinking is what cause wrong behavior. BELIEVING right about God then makes easier for all to draw better signals, if you will, of connection with Him. In the right tune you can connect with the real God. AND all those Chihuahuas would be just piece of cake. IN the past I have dwell (and sometimes I fight) on that old cycle of shame, guilt, unbelief, but I have a God who is stronger than any devil. Yeah! Lest call things by the right name. And God is a LOVER.

Taking every though CAPTIVE is fun if you do it with in the basis of knowing who God really is. This not about “anger management” or “positive thinking”. GOD IS NOT POSITIVE, GOD IS RIGHT. Sometimes we don’t like the way we ought to grow, but God knows what we need regardless of our comfort. God is not interested so much in that as He is on our character, He does not want for us to suffer much than what we can carry, therefore isn’t about going and suffer to grow. Not. Is about doing all that He is doing. He is pure LOVE. Real LOVE. And not the kind of “Hollywood Love”. The Bible teaches what the right one is. Do the search.

WE CAN NOT AVOID A BIRD FROM FLYING ON THE TOP OF OUR HEAD. BUT WE CAN NOT LET THEM MAKE A NEST. Get that?

All come down to a RELATIONSHIP with Him. Pursue His guidance. That’s where the FUN begins. Lest Change this mess! His LOVE never changes. Joy comes in the morning!!!

Be Blessed.

Mastering Chihuahuas!

with one comment

I believe in the power of stories. Do you? Do you like to hear one?

As a Catholic for 32 years I had never heard of the power of God’s greater adversary. Created as Lucifer (the morning star), he then became known as Satan after being throw out of heaven. Why? This being was the Worship Chorus’s leader. One day he looks at its amazing beauty and was astonished at how beautiful he was. Then he thought about being he the worshiped instead of God. He got together one third of the angelic host and convince them of fighting against God. Therefore all of them, including him, Lucifer, all were kick out of the third Heaven. So, as that happens he came to be named Satan, which is interpreted as “The Adversary”.

I thought that his history all ended there. First act: this angel mess up (and could done it since every being God creates He gives free will to). Second act: this angel is thrown out and disappears. No No. He is a spirit, can not be destroyed until the end of times. So it goes around like a roaring lion seeing to whom he can devour. He is not the opposite of God since God Is ALL knowing, ALL present, ALL powerful. But true is we need to be informed. I need it. Otherwise every time I fail I can think that every time is all just my fault. But He, the devil, is the one behind every darkness and all evil comes from him and only him. More clearly, he inspires all that is dark.

So this being moves in the spirit, he dwells on all opportunities to bring us back to our old nature (the old nature without God, before we have Jesus living with us, in us). Then, every time we are in pain, let said “life happens” he then pursue us to cling to too many stupid stuff to gave us RELIEF for, instead of walking in TRUTH. That is as if I decide to avoid GRACE toward ENRICH SOME NEUROTRANSMITERS.

I used to.

Pain. Get a chocolate. Rejection. Shopping. Unforgiveness. How about premarital sex? And on and on. Every one of this God isn’t against it, me either. And He is so for it since He created, for us to enjoy to its FULNESS, in the right time, in the right way. Why? So we can be FULFIL to the FULNESS, FULNESS, FULNESS. No matter how much I tried. His design is the very best. No, I’m not Married jet, but I know what I’m talking about.

Remember, we must know current events, and the adversary’s affairs. And we need so, because without meting an enemy, how we can go to war? Without going, how can we ever win? Spiritual war is easy, when Jesus is next to us. Otherwise we are blind, deaf, dumb, and all we do is:

Chocolate….and on, and on, and on.

How He operates? Thoughts. We must master our thinking according to God’s thinking. And from it, answer and build. Explore thoughts as you would a “Chihuahua”. The devil is not going to win anyways. Trust only the Lord God. You need to LIVE, not just exist as a tree, piece of wood, or an empty glass. If you believe that there is not an enemy is only because you are a little late in pursuing your REAL dreams which is in the identity that God gave you. YOU ARE A WINER. More than a Conqueror. You & I. All of us.

And I Am a Victor!!! Almost 5 years after knowing all these. I Am Awesomely Loved!

…to continue.
