MESSAGE and the MESSENGER


CONSIDER THIS...
The MESSAGE And The MESSENGER

---We all know that the Message is To Love. We know that Love is the best thing around. If you don't know this, then you probably have never experienced real Love. My suggestion to you is to be Loving and not so self - concerned, as you have probably thought that Love is some kind of special feeling you deserve, or not, according to some ill conceived notion, instead a natural response to the flow of life.
---It is all about Love. If we meet someone who personifies this, we tend to put him on a pedestal. But, there are others who do not put this person on a pedestal. Then, we think it's our duty to ignore this Someones advice about Loving this other person, and tend to want to shove this Someone and our own interpretation down his throat. We think this is Loving. This is more ''ignorant'' love than tough love, if in fact that exists. We get angry if the other doesn't see things our way. We are angry if the other doesn't ''get'' it. We somehow think that the other should be taking our ''misinterpretation'' on ''faith.'' It is a form of DOING WHAT IS WRONG and THINKING IT'S RIGHT.
---Instead of Loving the OTHER - WHO MAY NEED OUR LOVE, we think we have to DEFEND this being who speaks of Love. To truly be a follower, it seems we should learn the ways of Love and NOT how to try and defend he who doesn't need our defense. If He speaks of Loving enemies, why do we deem it correct not to? If we are asked to Love, why do we go do the opposite - and think this is what He meant?
---We say that we are being Loving when are being violent. We somehow see it as the right way to be. We justify this, somehow. Instead of being Loving we justify being violent and think that wiping out His enemies, who He Loves, is Okay. We should work toward being on the same page with Him, and LOVE. Don't Be VIOLENT!!

Honest COMMUNICATION - a poem.


The LEVELS Of COMMUNICATION
A POEM

The FIRST LEVEL Of COMMUNICATION.
NOT Knowing WHAT To SAY,
Nor WHERE To BEGIN.

Each Level Gets EASIER,
As One Opens - Up
And Tells The TRUTH
About ONESELF,
NOT Looking Back To See
HOW WE'RE DOING.

SELF-CONSCIOUSNESS
GETS IN THE WAY Of
Telling The TRUTH.
We WORRY If
We LOOK GOOD,
INSTEAD Of ''Staying On Track.''

If We ''Stay On Track,''
We Will See That
The GLOBE ITSELF Will
SHRINK DOWN And
We Will Be Telling
The ''TRUTH -TRUTH.''
And, We ''FEEL'' It.

THAT IS A VERY GOOD THING!!!

The HOUSE with FAULTY WIRING


CONSIDER THIS...
''The HOUSE With FAULTY WIRING.''

---There was once a House that had faulty wiring. ALL we ever did was to replace the ''fuse,'' to make the electricity come back on. But, it was well-known, that someday, the ''faulty'' wiring would have to be replaced.
