To Love is to Give and Forget

The family is the only institution created by God. It is the school of love where people can learn how to love each other and live together in peace, and it is the training center where we practice how to build a palace of peace in the world. It is where we learn how to become a husband or wife who will live for the sake of our spouse and how to become a husband and wife who will travel on the eternal path of love. The family is the base camp for world peace, and it must be such that the children will say, “We have never seen our mother and father fight.”

We come up against all sorts of things in life. Even the most loving couple can have times when they may bicker with each other, become angry, and raise their voices. When the children come into the room, however, it all must stop immediately. No matter how angry a spouse may be, he must relate to his spouse in peace when the children are present. The children must grow up thinking their family is filled with joy and their parents always love each other.

Parents are like a second God to their children. If you ask your young children, “Whom do you like better – God or Mommy and Daddy?” – and they say they like their mom and dad better, then that means they also like God. The most precious education takes place in the family. You won’t find happiness and peace in some other place. The family is intended to be the Kingdom of Heaven. It would not matter if a person possesses incredible wealth and fame or even possesses the whole world. If all is not right with that person’s family, then he cannot be happy. The Kingdom of Heaven begins in the family. If a husband and wife are bound together in true love and they build an ideal family, this will connect directly with the world.

Faith and Reality

As I Can See

The life of faith does not depend on the concrete, visible reality of this physical world, but has to do with the invisible God. We are living in a world of practical reality, so we have to deal with practical issues on this earth. However, the life of faith belongs to another realm, and we cannot apply the same standards or deal with the same issues.

In this world we all seek happiness and joy. We as individual beings can never find happiness, but we need some other element with which to bring it about–another person, material things, an intellectual goal. We can apply certain criteria to everything in the world. Unless we are finding other things or people that stimulate us and make us happy, we cannot make progress in life. In other words, we find happiness through something objective which stimulates us. In our academic life, we are…

He

As I Can See

Who is this person next to me?

What is this love He radiates?

Why is He whispering Blessings to me?

What is this bond between us?

How does He know what I love, fear and need?

How can He be anywhere I go?

How can I hear Him inside not through my ears?

And what is He waiting for when He look at me?

How long has He been trying to tell something,

something I still do not understand?

He is leaving and I follow.

I follow Him, across the lands,

hills and mountains, highs and lows.

One day we will arrive Home.

Questions on Faith and Life

As I Can See

  • How do you think of God, our Heavenly Parent?
  • How do you think of your parents?
  • “Who am I?”
  • Who do you want to be? (dreams, what kind of person you want to be)
  • What do you want to do? (desires, why do you want to do that)
  • What do you want to leave for your descendants?
  • Do you feel good in your everyday life?
  • What are your difficulties?

It might be useful to write the answers in a piece of paper or in a file, and read it, pray over it, meditate, and time to time re-write, and see the differences.

Our life has a definite purpose, even when we are blind towards to it, and on the way, with every moment, breathe, thought, deed we are marching for that, or going further.

It is always better to see it…

Be Blessed and Be Blessings to Others!

Sincerity and Indemnity

You must know that you should not allow Satan to invade in important tasks that you must accomplish for the future. Nor, should you allow the chosen people to be expelled from their respective positions. In order to keep away from these possibilities, you must indemnify all the evil elements beforehand, while putting yourself in the position of being willing to receive indemnity in order to rid yourself of all elements regarding evil and sins.

This is why you must always give your utmost sincerity. When you want to offer your sincerity, you cannot do it while you casually conduct your life eating and sleeping. It is absolutely impossible to offer your sincerity when you are in the position of having all you want to eat, sleep as much as you want and wear clothing that you enjoy wearing. For this reason, preparing to face an important event, you must put yourself in the position to conduct a showdown with God. You must be prepared to be hit beforehand. If God does not punish you, you should even initiate to punish yourself, on your own. If you get punished, what would happen? You will place yourself as the object to God. This is the principle of restoration by which God advanced throughout history.
