[1: 1,759 of 10,000] I Am Trying To Understand

In Journal on July 20, 2016 at 11:16 PM

Heaven

I started reading The Course in Miracles without a rush. I am starting again to see if I would pick up the holy message. I know that understanding it is just the beginning.

Life’s biggest questions like what is my purpose are continuously puzzling me and I needed decent answers to emerge to have reason to get up in the morning.

What am I absorbing so far from x to xiii at the very beginning under What It Says?

  1. Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.
  2. The course begins with the fundamental distinction between the real and the unreal; between knowledge and perception.
  3. Knowledge is truth, under one law, the law of love or God. This truth is unalterable, eternal and unambiguous. You may not know it but it applies to everything that God created, and only what He created is real. It is beyond learning because it is beyond time and process. It has no opposite, no beginning and no end. It merely is.
  4. Perception on the other hand is based on interpretation, not on facts. Founded on the belief in scarcity, loss, separation and death. It is learned and selective in its perceptual emphases and inaccurate in its interpretations.
  5. What perception sees and hears appears to be real because it permits into awareness only what conforms to the wishes of the perceiver. This leads to a world of illusions, a world which needs constant defence precisely because it is not real. It is like being caught in a dream and the only help to get out of it is through the Holy Spirit, the function of God’s Voice.
  6. The Holy Spirit’s goal is to help us escape from the dream world by teaching us how to reverse our thinking and unlearn our mistakes. Forgiveness is the greatest learning aid in bringing this thought reversal.
  7. Sin is “lack of love”. Since love is all there is, sin in the sight of the Holy Spirit is a mistake to be corrected, rather than an evil to be punished.
  8. We “love” another in order to get something ourselves. That, in fact, is what passes for love in the dream world. There can never be a greater mistake than that, for love is incapable of asking for anything.
  9. The “little I” seeks to enhance itself by external approval, external possessions and external “love”. The Self That God created needs nothing. It is forever complete, safe, loved and loving. It seeks to share rather than to get; to extend rather than project. It has no needs and wants to join with others out of their mutual awareness of abundance.
  10. The special relationship of the world are destructive, selfish and childishly egocentric. Yet, if given to the Holy Spirit, these relationships can become the holiest things on earth, the miracles that point the way to the return to Heaven.
  11. The voice of God, the Holy Spirit, which abides in each of us seems distant and difficult to hear because the ego, which speaks for the little, separated self, seems to be much louder.
  12. Forgiveness is unknown in Heaven, where the need for it would be inconceivable. However, in this world, forgiveness is a necessary correction for all the mistakes that we have made.
  13. Heaven is the natural state of all the Sons of God as He created them. Such is their reality forever. It has not changed because it has been forgotten. Forgiveness is the means by which we will remember. The forgiven world becomes the gate of Heaven.
  14. Holding no one prisoner to guilt, we become free. Acknowledging Christ in all our brothers, we recognise His Presence in ourselves. Forgetting all our misperceptions, and with nothing from the past to hold us back, we can remember God.
  15. When we are ready, God Himself will take the final step in our return to Him.

So far right now, this book is what I am considering as my Bible. It was originally written in English, first published in America in 1976, and that I am more confident that it was dictated with the modern readers in mind like ME to return and find the loving me who never left but burdened by my wrong perceptions.

[1: 1,662 of 10,000] Pondering For A Novel

In Journal on November 25, 2015 at 7:22 AM

I am craving to write a novel. Will I be able to write something with delightful perspective and entertaining experience without me “cringing”?

I dream to become a great story teller where every words of the characters awaken our beautiful soul to venture into an adventure and see the magnificence of life. To encourage each of us in being the greatest that we can be and keep on being loving and grateful.

I have experienced shame, pain, and desperation. I often wonder about the people who even participated on those journey and understanding that it might not even be their will to be part of it; but it happened because I needed my growth so I can tell a new story. It’s a source of a new depth.

I need to set a schedule to write or this will pass by without me accomplishing it. 2016 must means new book.

[1: 1,535 of 10,000] I Don’t Stop With One Victory

In Journal on July 22, 2015 at 4:27 PM

Victory

I finished an eBook, published it in Amazon Kindle, and I feel happy that I accomplished something but surprisingly I also don’t feel contented. I am starting to worry that I don’t have pride in me, is it because the book was too personal and aimed at good intentions? Is it a good thing that I don’t have a growing ego and I am staying very grounded? Is it normal to be this unattached with the result? I want it to be a best-seller but I am more to my hope that it changes people to be more loving even if their patience is tested.

I will never forget Liz Gilbert’s words too about “Creativity” wherein she said that she never let her writing as a source of her income. The “Eat Pray Love” turned out to be freakishly successful but before that, she had one or two jobs that would financially support her. She doesn’t want to depend on her writing to bring in monies to support her. Although after the worldwide success of “Eat Pray Love” she doesn’t need to be in odd jobs just so she can indulge to writing.

I am still looking for a job and while I was out of job I decided that I must at least publish an eBook at Amazon Kindle as a start. This is just a beginning of my dream of becoming an author and I will make sure that I don’t stop at one. I am hungry for more victories and I am not going to be bitter by saying “I am a starving writer” because writing for me is a joy, my deepest beloved calling. I am still looking for a job and I am planning my next book.

[1: 1,305 of 10,000] J.K. Rowling’s Harvard Commencement Speech

In Article on February 17, 2014 at 4:49 AM

I love the speech of J.K. Rowling at Harvard’s Commencement in 2008.

Three things stayed with me –

1. Only a fool can romanticise being poor.

It is not acceptable to say I am fine with no money, can barely eat, no shelter to rejuvenate, and barely making it at the end of the day! She is right that being poor is not a good state ; that’s why I love the power of the universe where there are enough resources for everyone. Absolutely no reason why not everyone can be rich and successful; the only thing hindering us and our wealth is our fear and inaction.

2. Blaming your parents has expiration.

People laughed when she uttered that thought but she was right. If we are under the strict jurisdiction of our parents then it is valid but as we grow up, it is in our RESPONSIBILITY to choose the path that would lead us living our dream. We are our own roots, trunk, leaves, and fruits.

3. Imagination to feel and to emphatize with others.

This is a beautiful gift that all human being could do and makes us human and an innovator.  A creator to keep us connected and be good with one another.

[1: 775 of 10,000] The Art of War

In Review on September 24, 2012 at 11:38 PM

It is taking me so much time to finish The Art of War of Sun Tzu translated in English. I hated the endless footnotes. Why didn’t the translator condensed and tell a story instead of having so many side comments that the reading becomes painstaking? It was like going back to English History in High School and I wasn’t enjoying at all.

This morning, reading The Art of War reminds me of another lady author who tackled the same subject. Her book was notably a best seller but she died a few years ago. Everybody dies it’s just a matter of will you live hating, being mean, scared, careless, or spend this limited life with the most dare devil attitude.

I’m starting to be inspired. 🙂 Very good. ♥
