HOLY BIBLE…THE MODERN-DAY TESTAMENT: There are a bazillion and one dead-end paths you can take, during your lifetime, that look like “THE EASY WAY OUT!”
1. But don’t be fooled… if “Heaven on Earth” is your desired destination, there are no shortcuts that are devoid of God’s guidance. 2. And make no mistake, both “Heaven on Earth” and “Hell on Earth” have and will always be a state-of-mind that overtime graduates to a state-of-being and ultimately evolves into an absolute way of life… no matter what is going on in your life, near you or in the world. 3. Without God’s guidance all paths lead from one “Hell on Earth” eXperience to another causing fear, misery, suffering, longing, lack, and disappointment to become your constant companions. 4. But never fear, there is hope… if you are willing to allow God to cleanse and reprogram your psyche to living a life that is filled with agape love for Him, yourself, all members of the human family, and life in general. 5. FYI: Agape love does not mean you have to like the inhumane, inconsiderate and intolerable behavior of people. 6. Once you have surrendered and submitted to God, from this point on all you must do, on a regular basis, is to tweak your mind with prayer and fine-tune it with meditation to ensure there is always a clear line of communication between you and God. 7. Prayer is the time you devote to talking to God. 8. And meditation is the time you allocate to listening to God.
8. Following God’s guidance will never steer you wrong, put you through hell, or leave you stranded wondering why God has forsaken you. 9. Feeling “forsaken” by God is and will always be a byproduct of your disobedience, overinflated ego, or misunderstanding of God’s directives. 10. If you are having difficulty discerning between the voice of God from others spirts… hold up until you are 100 percent clear that it is God speaking to you. 11. If you are having difficulty understanding God when He speaks to you… hold up until you achieve the level of clarity you need to proceed. 12. But if you are just being downright disobedient to the directives of God, you may as well bend over and kiss your bootylicious buns goodbye! 13. Oh, and just in case you also lack clarity on this point… your bootylicious buns won’t be bootylicious for much longer as long as you believe you are smarter than God and are dead set on “doing your own thing!”
14. Pray for God’s guidance, then pray for full understanding… and then keep praying until you achieve the level of enlightenment you need. 15. Know that until you achieve a higher level of spiritual development, God’s word to you and for you may seem a little eclectic but, in time, will provide you with crystal clear clarity that will enable you to proceed with a level of blessed beyond belief that will elevate you to new heights of amazing, miraculous and super-satisfying outcomes.
LIFE-ENRICHING RECOMMENDATION: 16. There are a lot of false beliefs that lurk around every nook and cranny on Earth. 17. And the concept of “taking the easy way out” is definitely one of them… particularly when it comes to manifesting dreams and goals. 18. There’s a saying that “If it looks too good to be true, it generally is.” 19. So, take the time to pause, for longer than a hot second, when it comes to the word “easy” because it could be masking a detour that leads straight into the bowels of hellish eXperiences that will zap your energy, steal your resources and waste time you can never get back. 20. Take time to think logically… this leads to rational thought that produces wiser choices and way better options and outcomes.
