As spiritual beings, we are made for boundless happiness and peace. The problem is that we tend to identify with our self-made worlds instead of God’s world.
Our self-made worlds are complex. They are heavy with emotional scars, interpretations of the past, and constant reactions to unsatisfied needs. We are scared of getting hurt. We are scared of being wrong. We are offended. We are right. We own the truth. We own the argument. We stand guard. Individuals are evaluated instead of being offered compassion, love, and patience. Criticism is free, hope is expensive. We are encouraged to avoid people, put them in their place, and be less tolerant of them. God is outside of us and we must find him. We must earn his approval, love, and forgiveness as other must earn ours. Love is limited and lost easily.
God’s world is completely different from the reality that we’ve been brought up in. In God's world, we are all light and free despite our past, despite our present, despite our future. All is well as it has all brought us to an encounter with God. We speak our truth. We need not own the argument or "win" in order to be happy. There is only love, there is no fear. There is trust that all will be well. Everyone that is brought into your life is meant to bring you closer to God. Even the hard stuff is an invitation to a holy experience. Everyone is deserving of love. Everyone. Everywhere, there is an opportunity to rise. To be human means to be fully divine; it is not our shame, but rather our blessing. We are never separate from God. He is in and with us always. We are never lacking of love. We are always whole. Everything we need: peace, love, acceptance, and bliss can be experienced at any given moment. We need not pray to activate God’s presence, but rather align our world with His. We deserve everything. Love is unlimited and never lost.
As spiritual beings, we are made for boundless happiness and peace, but this can’t be accomplished in our self-made worlds run by our stormy egos. We cannot exist in both worlds. The great journey is to choose God's world time and time again.
