Faith in God, Faith in Ourselves, Faith in Others.

If we’re not working on any particular one of these three areas of faith, then we’re trying to sit on a stool with 1 or 2 of it’s 3 legs missing.

Faith in God, we know.  We’ve been taught this, and we try to practice it.  We’re familiar with what it calls for.  This has been with us for a long time growing up and as adults.  It is what is most pointed to when people talk of faith at all.

Faith in ourselves, is a little harder, because it’s easy to forget this.  When we’re struggling with life’s slings and arrows, it’s easy to get lost on our own woes and sorrows.  When we’re overwhelmed with the serious and bulldozing experiences which can come forth in life, we may call upon God and have faith in Him/Her, but it’s easy to forget to have faith also in ourselves to make it through even these desperate challenges.

But, faith in others???

Here is where we stumble and fall over and over, again.  So, many of us think of others and think the worst.  We see the worst in some people and think the worst in all, sometimes.  It is so easy, and it seems automatic, like a recorded response that plays over and over in our minds and hearts triggered by … whatever triggers the response.

Faith in others is one of the more challenging “faiths” to have.  We can easily become cynical, bitter, resentful and angry when we choose to not even try to have faith in others.

Yet, we may have faith in everyone who thinks and feels exactly like we do – everyone who believes exactly like we believe.  However, we may give up the struggle to have faith in any of the many human beings who feel, think and believe differently.

It is so easy to have faith in someone who believes exactly like we do – even though there is no one in existence who believes actually EXACTLY like we do.  It is so easy to have faith in anyone who speaks the same words, espousing the same views, demonstrating the same feelings and thoughts, as we ourselves – even though there is no one in existence who PERFECTLY matches our own views, words, beliefs, feelings and thoughts.

It takes a decision within ourselves to have faith in others, and what can help is to have faith in their higher self – that part of ourselves that is still connected to the Infinite Universal Divine Consciousness, and sees with the eyes of this Divine Perspective.

We have a hard time living our human lives from this Divine Perspective place in our consciousness.  But, the choice still exists for us to make.  In addition, many people seem far, far, away from this place in our consciousness what with the horrors people bring forth in our world.

All things are possible with God, and it is possible to have faith in others when we remember that, like God, who has given them eternity, we, too, can give them eternity to work things out within themselves – working out the cynicism, bitterness, resentment. hatred and more.  1 million, 2 million, 5 million years is not that long for working out inner issues – to change our hearts and minds.  Yet, eternity (which is even more than 5 million years) is what God gives us, and at no time does God abandon us to work on ourselves without Him/Her in all this eternity.  Infinite Love is like that.

We can look at this one life and think we’re doomed, or they’re doomed or he’s bad or she’s wrong or this or that or the like.  But, God looks at us through the eyes of Eternity and in that Eternity, God can do all things – including bring us back into an awareness and Oneness with Infinite Love – the Love that permeates Infinity and connects us to the Love that exists inside Eternity.

With Faith in God, we can better practice faith in ourselves, and with both of these, we can learn how to have faith in others – knowing there is something within each soul that is connected to God and will never be disconnected – remaining connected for Eternity.

“Nothing has manifested in the world that wasn’t first imagined.
This includes harmony, cooperation, kindness and peace. That which we imagine in our minds, will be what we manifest in the world – even if we imagine harm and violence upon others. ” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

“We accept that computers work even though we don’t understand how. We know someone somewhere knows how they work. We have faith in that. Can we have faith in Christ even though we don’t understand or know how it’s all possible? The fact is Jesus Christ understands completely how it’s all possible.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

“Suffering is not a failure. This experience is what the soul has sought, in order to walk the journey out of suffering, and in doing so, leading other souls out of the suffering which they have indeed been experiencing and been lost in for more millenniums than we could even count. Jesus is the first.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2013, Jodie Senkyrik)

Freewill and Judgement Question

I wonder how you define freewill, I’m a bit theologically curious. I don’t think God is as non judgmental as you seem to [think], and I think you are giving him a get out of jail free card on some things. And my bias is Christian…  V.

Thanks for the comment and question. (Here’s my answer.  I’m sure others would have other answers.)

More important than my understanding of freewill and more important than our differences in our beliefs is the question, “What do we do with our beliefs?”

The world will never have “Peace on Earth, and Goodwill towards all men” if we think we all must believe the same way, because that’s not going to happen.  But, if we look at the question of what do we do with our beliefs, or to what use do we put our beliefs, or how do our own beliefs serve us?, then as we answer this or these questions, our answers will determine how we treat and relate to God, ourselves, and each other.

If we use our beliefs to strengthen our kindness, our compassion, our understanding, mercy and forgiveness, our support, our encouragement, our willingness to hold the hand of those who need a helping hand, then we will find that the world does indeed gain more “Peace on Earth and Goodwill towards all men.”

But, if we use our beliefs to condemn, to criticize, to judge, or to carry out our own vengeance, or our own bitterness, resentment, or hatred, then we will not achieve that which Christ has come to establish.  We can use our beliefs to bury people in guilt and shame.  We can use our beliefs to symbolically stone people to death, until they despair and lose all sense of hope for themselves.  We can use our beliefs to chain and imprison people in blame.   We can use our beliefs in any number of ways to bury people under the weight of the entire world, if we want to choose that.

Regardless of what God chooses to do, to judge or not judge, we can choose, within our own hearts and minds, the beliefs, acts, thoughts and feelings which we want to follow and become who we choose to be.  This is how I define freewill – making a choice on our/my own actions, our/my own feelings, our/my own thoughts, and our/my own beliefs, and then following through with them.

This may seem to some people to contradict the fact that we live on a planet that has a system of justice and imprisonment.  This is a reality on our planet, but each of us still has the choice within us as to whether we condemn another or hate another within our own heart.  Even those that commit crimes, that go through our criminal system, and that are imprisoned – these men and women are loved by someone, and most certainly by Christ,  in addition to being the recipients of Infinite Love from our Infinite God, who also offers Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Understanding, Infinite Mercy to you, me and everyone else.

This means that everyone, no matter what we, of our own freewill have chosen to act out, or think, or believe, — everyone is already worthy enough to be loved — with no exceptions — and no one can stop this love going to another person.  We can only stop what comes to ourselves.

When we realize this is for all of us, and let the Infinite Expressions of God come forth for all of us, then we have (to use the common phrase) “accepted the keys to the kingdom” – the keys to that existence where Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Mercy, Infinite Understanding, Infinite Patience, Infinite Compassion and Infinite Love all exist and are ours both within and without.

But, wait, there’s more.  (Sorry, it was too tempting to write that sentence.)  We don’t have to wait until we die to accept this, because of our own freewill, we can choose – within our hearts and minds today to act, to think, to relate, to treat others from that place within us where God lives and where we can draw upon Infinite Mercy, Infinite Patience, Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Understanding and Infinite Love when dealing with each other.  This is called, “creating a Heaven on Earth.”

God has given us freewill to make our own choices.  These choices of actions, feelings, emotions, thoughts, beliefs and more, – we make these choices every minute of every day.  As humans, we are a mixed bag of all of these, including being judgmental and condemning at times.  With that, it’s not unheard of our wanting God to follow our lead and be like we are, judging who and what we judge, rather than us follow Christ’s lead – being patient, forgiving and merciful – letting go of judgement.

Thank you, again, for your comments and question.  This is how I answer, and I’m sure it is very different than many others’ answer.

The Universe and Here

The Hubble Telescope and all the future telescopes will indeed show us the scope of the universe and so much of what is in the Universe.

We may find that we share knowing that which all the life in the Universe may know, also.  We may find that there is one thing that we share with the life in all the super clusters of galaxies, local clusters of galaxies, all the stars and planets in all the billions of galaxies – and that is what is in front of our nose that we keep dismissing or forgetting –

and this is that the very best thing in all the Universe and all the galaxies and all the solar systems and all the planets –

and that so many of the different life forms on these other worlds might know also –

and this thing that we find and that we know and that they may find or they may know –

and which we have here on Earth and that exists in all the Universe and all other possible universes –

the very best thing of all life – in all locations – on all planets – in all galaxies – and in all universes –

that which has no equal and all other things are pale when compared to –

the single best thing of all universes –

is Love.

Here, there, and everywhere.

The Experience of Infinite Consciousness

All life is constantly creating, so that all life can constantly experience all life.  Put another way, the Infinite God, of which we are all “not separated from” parts of God, experiences all that life has to offer, through all the parts of God that God has given consciousness to, (and God has given consciousness to all of life.)

Put another way, there is no thing that is separate from an Infinite everything.  The Full God Consciousness is connected within each unique consciousness that God has given awareness to.  This is not just humans, but all of existence – all of the Infinitely created “Everything”.

Put another way, Infinite Consciousness experiences infinite experiences through all the different parts of Infinite consciousness.

Put another way, God is everything.  Consciousness is everything.  And just because we don’t get it, only means that we haven’t yet experienced Infinite experiences in order to be aware of ourselves as Infinite Consciousness.

All of life – Infinite God Consciousness – is constantly creating, so that all of life – Infinite God Consciousness – can constantly experience all of life – Infinite God Consciousness.

Put another way, we, as part of Infinite God Consciousness, are constantly creating, so that we, as part of Infinite God Consciousness, can constantly experience ourselves as part of Infinite God Consciousness.

Interestingly, all of Infinite God Consciousness is within us, and available to us, all the time, but gaining it all is like the joke – A man asked God, “God, it’s true isn’t it, that to you a million years is like a second, and it’s true that to you a million dollars is like a penny?”  And God replied, “Yes, it’s true.”  And the man said, “Then, I pray to you, give me a penny.”  And God said, “In a second.”

It’s all available, all the time, and to integrate it all, and be aware of it all, we simply use all time.

Needless to say, we still have a ways to go, but we have infinite time – eternity – in which to do it.  For some of us, the hard part is wrapping our minds around what exactly the term “infinite” means.  Once we can do that, we are slightly closer to understanding all that is.

See?  It all makes sense, now, right?

So, you can understand now, how Infinite Creativity creates Infinitely.  And Infinite Consciousness experiences this infinite creativity.

Because of this, every experience that you and I create for ourselves and others is experienced by the Infinite Consciousness – by all life – in some form or way.  No experience we create for ourselves or another is limited to only ourselves or that other person.

Since we are part of the Infinite, the experiences we create are experienced by the Infinite – by all of life – on this planet, solar system, galaxy and universe, including other planes of existence, other universes, and other dimensions.

In other words, all of life, of which we are a part, experiences all of life, of which we are a part, and we experience all of life because of this.

See?

The Infinite Archive

There is an actual internet archive that exists and is being compiled that archives every webpage and every past version of webpages in existence.  The purpose is to create a database of everything ever created on the planet.  Awesome, isn’t it.  Huge, too.  Right?

There is another archive in existence that holds even more information.  The Akashic records hold every thought, every emotion, every belief, every action, every everything of an entire lifetime.  And then it also holds each soul’s lifetime after lifetime, after lifetimes.  And then it holds everything in between lives, and it holds a soul’s existence before it ever entered into the earth plane, and it holds all the previous existences in other planes and other planets, … and all those thoughts, and feelings, and beliefs, and learning and actions.  And it holds all the potentials, all the choices, and all the other dimensions.  Even more awesome, and even more huge.  Right?

Then, there is the archive in existence, that holds infinity.  It is the Consciousness of God… of which the Akashic records exists in, and if you’re wondering, which the Internet Archive exists in, also.

Infinity is the Consciousness of God.  The Consciousness of God is Infinity.  This Consciousness of God is aware of Everything within it, including everything in the Akashic Records and everything in the Internet Archive.  And everything in every superconscious and everything in every subconscious.

Infinite Consciousness is aware of Itself as Infinite Consciousness.  Therefore, all life and everything pertaining to it exists within this Infinite Consciousness, and therefore, Infinite Consciousness is aware of all life and everything pertaining to all life.

Within Infinite Consciousness lies Infinite Creativity and therefore Infinite Possibilities.  This is why Jesus said, “With God, all things are possible.”  Jesus just used 6 words to say it all.  (I used more.)

And remember in the Infinite Consciousness of God exists Infinite Understanding, Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Patience, Infinite Mercy, Infinite Peace and, yes, Infinite Unending Love.

You knew that, right? :-)

Food Prices Predictions: 2

The news is saying the price of food is going to increase.  It’s true.
What the news hasn’t mentioned is that the price of food is going to go up for the next 4 years.  Each year  from 2012 to 2016, we will see the prices at the supermarkets increase from the previous year’s prices.    While some will say we can consider this normal inflation, what we’ll see won’t be normal at all.

I encourage people to once again begin gardening to grow some of their own vegetables.   We may not be able to grow all our food, but we can offset some of the steady rise in prices that is coming.  Check out youtube.com to see all the creative ways people are growing their own food.  Our creativity is only limited by our own willingness or unwillingness.  If you need help with creativity, ask God to be creative through you.  Remember, an infinite God has infinite creativity, and infinite creativity creates infinitely.
