The mere act of wanting is to say: God... What you have given me is not enough, I know better than you what I need, God... I do not trust you. That is why the following formula is the only way to Peace and Joy: “Expecting nothing + Appreciating everything = unshakable Peace and Joy” Want is the source of ALL suffering.

Pride and shame are two sides of the same coin, a coin which is only issued by "The Bank of Fear",  a coin to be used in the singular purpose of purchasing chains that would imprison one’s Soul and delay inevitable perfection.

If Spiritual perfection was easy everyone would do it. The beauty of this life is that wherever you are is where you're supposed to be. As you live this experience making your best choices according to the light you've been given, it is accounted as righteousness. You are where you are and I am where I am, and I feel certain that each of us is doing the very best we can with the light we've been given. There is a huge difference between believing something and knowing it. Failing at a belief is quite normal, and failing in a knowing is not possible. We are here to make mistakes. Guilt, regret, shame, etc... Slow our Spiritual growth. The only thing that is real is God's ways, and they are beyond our scope of understanding, so all we can do is our best, and God will never ask more.

Jesus said: “I say unto you, That ye resist not evil” Matthew 5:39 To resist evil is to become evil, there is no exception to this rule. In the end, only a universal oneness will overcome evil. Where any division/separateness is perceived there will be evil.

Recipe for Peace: always welcome yourself with Loving and open arms to wherever you are and always be gentle with yourself for wherever you've been, knowing that at every point the experiences, knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that one has been given is the only well one has to draw from in the doing of one's best. As each of us proceeds according to the best Light we have, it is accounted as righteousness... no matter the outcome.

Spiritual growth is like climbing the cold and shadowed side of a mountain, our energy is most exhausted at the very point when we have climbed the highest and have the furthest to fall, however, the weariness and the chance of falling are required if we are to ever truly know the embrace of the warm and perfected Light that awaits us at the peak.

Nothing happens outside the will of God. If ever you would like to know His will, simply look at what has occurred. We each of us have complete control of our actions, however, we have no control over the consequences of those actions. Consequences are endless ripples that emanate from our every action.

Stick with it in faith my friend, Don't Quit! Help is being sent of God, and will appear at the very moment you are truly prepared and ready to receive it. Of this fact each of us can truly testify, if being truly honest in the examining of the past Experiences of our Lives :-) The mere fact that I have breath to say these words, and you have energy to read them, is absolute proof that our Loving Heavenly Father has provided our every need, in every moment from the very beginning of this life. Definitely not every worldly want, but EVERY need. And that being the undeniable fact, why in Faith, would there be even the slightest worry for the moments yet to come in this life. God has never and never will abandon us in our needs!

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional." Pain is what the world brings on us, suffering is what we do to ourselves emotionally and Spiritually. Most Spiritual teachings tell us (in one form or another) to "Give thanks in ALL things" nothing is left out when the word ALL is used. So ALL would definitely include pain. Whenever we do not give thanks in ALL things, on some level, we will Spiritually suffer. So give Thanks for the pain and avoid the suffering.

I'm Thankful in the knowledge that Each of us are making choices according to the best light we have. That there is never reason for embarrassment, humiliation, regret. This Life we live is here for us to make mistakes and learn from them and Spiritually grow. Imagining a person that has never made mistakes is like staring at an unworkable stone.

If I could tell the world just one thing... We are ALL OK, not to worry because worry is wasteful and useless anyway. We must not be made useless, must not worship the idol of despair... We must gather ourselves in faith for it is Light that the darkness does most fear. We are Eternal and NEVER broken. We must fall upon our knees in prayer, that We might be God's Hands... We are ALL OK.

Raymond D. Longoria Jr.

How someone treats me (kind or cruel), is only between them and God, And my reaction the experience is only between myself and God. Put another way, the giving of a gift is between the giver and God. The receiving of a gift is between the receiver and God. So when giving a gift... truly let it go with no concern of how or even if it is used, the work was accomplished in the moment of giving.

I used to repeat a false and destructive mantra... 'No good deed goes unpunished.' In truth, a good deed is a test that has been passed. And like any good teacher, the Creator makes the tests more difficult after each lesson is learned. ALL good deeds are rewarded with growth, and growth is difficult.

My love for you was so big,  I taught you strength, to be free,  so much so that you no longer needed me,  that was the great sacrifice I didn't foresee,  as I am here longing and so lonely.  I would do it ALL the same again,  for you to be happy,  though you don't require me,  you are free,  And that is how big a father's love can be...

We thought we were together, climbing the same mountain, But you were only climbing yours, I was only climbing mine I stepped on your hands to get higher, you clawed at my back to get higher And though you fell, I got higher, You fell... I got higher I wish it was me that fell instead of you I wish my wishes weren't lies and could be true, you were sacrificed, I got higher. In this twisted world down is up and wrong is right, as I climb higher, Down towards hell, I'm ever deeper, I'm losing my sight, my will to fight I'm glad you fell, in the fall you've gone higher. You've gone higher

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John1:1 Words carry great power, it is quite important to know not so much what the dictionary says that they mean, but what the ancients say that they mean. Judaism believes that the entirety was created by rearranging the 22 letters of its alphabet into words, and whatever was spelled by God was created. "And God SAID let there be light and there was" God said/spelled a word first before any creation. In the beginning, was the word. Jesus, while on the cross, could have easily said, "Forgive them Father for they know not what they say
