What kind of being is God?

What kind of being is God? God likes both the good people and the bad people on earth. Even a condemned criminal going to his place of execution says, “God, have mercy on me” before he dies. In front of God, even those who are facing the death penalty for their crimes resolve to become good again and to make a new start with hope. Why is it that, in so doing, they want to offer their best service to God, depend on Him, and be with Him? Why, in their innermost heart, do people willingly leave their parents, and brothers and sisters, wanting to be closest to God in order to share their personal concerns with Him? This is because God is true.

Are People Inherently Bad?

Have you ever thought our world is doomed and people are less likely to manifest eternal happiness and cause joy to each other? You might be right about it…

However, there is an “if” in this case.

First of all, “if” we really look around and see the recent state of our world today we can safely say, there are barely any glimpses of true shine of hope and wisdom.

Can any leaders in any field be trusted to take a lead for the greater good not for own, selfish interests?

Of course, plenty of them are giving donations which is great, some support people in need, children in crisis and so on.

A great yet small sum in exchange for what they did to them, to all of us. Anyhow, we are all into this, together, collectively.

Yes, personally you most probably never harmed anyone, never caused any regional conflict to gain more for your business, possibly never lied bluntly instead of being honest and most probably you never took advantage on the vulnerable ones.

However, we all let it happen. We all let the evil to spread among us, causing misery and agony.

With every day not changing and evolving for the greater, common good, we keep repeating the same, vicious cycle what has been happening since we remember for human history.

And maybe there is where everything lies behind.

We forgot the beginning.

We became purposeless.

We became rootless.

This rootlessness made us to be ruthless. And instead of dreaming for a great future and building it, we keep doing everything against ourselves and each other.

“IF” we look around, if we really look at that, especially the Nature, we can see patterns. Patterns which are unchanging, eternal in every level in the Universe. Even in our own cells. Even in the planetary systems. And they are to show how our own lives are supposed to be.

Living for the sake of others.

It all starts with an internal desire, continues with the right mindset. It goes on with the right way of speaking. And then actions come. First: mind and body unity, centred on a true heart.

A person who is growing this way, can relate in a more mature level with another one. Together, they are able to unite in a much higher and heartfelt relationships. A true one.

It can happen between a parent and a child, siblings and spouses.

As for siblings, this can be applied to anyone, every one of us can relate to each other as true brothers and sisters.

We can even use this kind of approach with the world around us, keeping and growing a sustainable garden of life.

“If” we can see the patterns, maybe it takes time, then, we will be able to start to think of applying them, step by step to our lives.

Will it be successful at first? Not necessarily.

Will we succeed ultimately? Absolutely.

What we need here is, to be able to see, we are not meant to suffer, we never were. We need to be able to see, we were never meant to hurt each other or abandon in need.

Everyone deserves to be happy and live a joyous life.

We need to find our original mindset for that. Since the desire is in our heart, we are already at the second step.

The impulse of the original mind, which everyone possesses, is to abhor evil and exalt goodness.

So, what are we waiting for?

We were born to be good with such a great creativity for co-creation.
