Knee Jerk Reacting

Religion4All

This is the work of re-wiring your brain … conscious work.  Rather than constantly, perpetually reacting, reacting, REACTING … just stop, and choose to love.  That’s all … just by doing that you are being successful in living life. Don’t worry about what anyone else has to say … just keep centering yourself and choosing to LOVE, instead of knee-jerk reacting everywhere you go. That will put you on The Path … and from there the Divine will be your Guide.

Words to meditate upon:

“Put love first. Entertain thoughts that give life. And when a thought or resentment, or hurt, or fear comes your way, have another thought that is more powerful — a thought that is love.”

– Mary Manin Morrissey

A History of Victory

My words to meditate on for the day:

“You are not a victim. No matter what you have been through, you’re still here. You may have been challenged, hurt, betrayed, beaten, and discouraged, but nothing has defeated you. You are still here! You have been delayed but not denied. You are not a victim, you are a victor. You have a history of victory.”

Steve Maraboli

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Jesus – The Bible, John 14:27

“You can either be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It all depends on how you view your life.”

Paolo Coelho, “Eleven Minutes”

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
