Im tired of the charade that guises under the umbrella of “church” seemingly the last place you will find “love” these days, where your light, you fuel, with bellows you keep alight yet still the “church” constantly dim. You pray, you cry, you dance, you sing, no matter what you do, if you dare to be different and not conform, you get persecuted from the very ones who dine with you!! Alas, the usual response, the familiar response, skilfully used by the rod of abuse. Blame shifting, quote a scripture, blame the victim, justify your action. Cite an example from the assemblage of books. Judas, Brutus, betrayal, what do you expect, etc, etc
I’m tired of the charade that guises under the umbrella of “church” where love stands at the door and knocks!

… so I read someplace, if you’re tired, rest, take a break, time out!! So not to quit but rest. So just do it, rest!!! 😊
On the subject of scars and forgiveness, and you’re still hurting because you haven’t really forgiven judgment branded about in church!!
When you have had a recent experience that has literally picked on your scar and caused new pain, I understand why Jesus said to forgive 70 x 7 times.
Christians sometimes act like if you get hurt and feel pain you haven’t forgiven!!!
Forgiveness does not automatically eliminate pain!!
You don’t believe me!
I’ll prove it
So Jesus was hanging from the cross:
Would you agree he was in pain?
So he said, forgive them for they know not what they are doing!!
Did he recover and immediately stop hurting after this?
In fact, he died!!!
Wow!! QED! Selah!

Following on from yesterday, I’d like to propose our “UNIVERSAL PURPOSE” is LOVE! ❤ 🌈 💐 💕
I believe we ought to keep going even if we may not necessarily have a clear destination!
Just like we don’t stop breathing just because we’re having an “off” day or a day of quiet reflection likewise we keep on going or moving!!
It keeps momentum and as you keep going even if it’s for the sake of it, clarity comes!!
The “aha” moment!
Then we set sail, full throttle towards a specific defined direction to an ultimate goal or arrival point.
Then we realise that the seemingly purposeless or “wondering round the wilderness” phase builds character!!
So keep moving, keep going, keep reaching, keep breathing!!
Live. Love. Shine.

Success gurus make a big deal about knowing your purpose or having a clear goal otherwise you will not arrive at your destination!!
All gurus had a clear destination and had it all sorted out from day one!!
Most, if not all went through the self discovery exploratory phase!!
Then came the “aha” moment!!
So don’t beat yourself up if you don’t feel you know what your purpose is yet!
Carry on doing the universal purpose of love!
Live, love and shine, even if that is all you do daily, you are daily achieving your purpose!!
The Universal Purpose!
Live, love thyself,
Live, love thy neighbour,
Live, love, shine your light for all to see
Live, love, shine!
The Universal Purpose!
The Universal Dream!
The Universal Destination!
