What I have learned.

They asked me what I have learned.  That is a difficult question at my age  I feel like I know nothing at all anymore.  Forty years ago I was certain about a lot of things.  Today I only know one thing for sure........GOD IS.........And another...........I am.......that all our descriptions of God are just that, descriptions, the frail human mind trying to describe the indescribable.  Everyone describes what they have interpreted as their own experience which is distorted by culture, theology, doctrine and all the other ways people have laid down belief like concrete on the great Sea that is God.  In time it all sinks and all that is left is the Reality we call God.  Jesus said, "when you go out on your journey, take no bag, no staff, nothing but yourself." We must travel light holding on to  To go the whole way through the narrow gate into God, who by another name is Love, Love is all there is in the end.  All our baggage is left behind, personal failures or virtues are simply extra baggage.  Being in Love is all that matters.  We cross over to God's side to live in a state of acceptance and forgiveness, being a loving Presence, loving the world as it is....because it is....shot through with the glory of God.

I am grieving the loss of knowing anything. At times I feel so stupid I wonder how I have been able to function. So it was good to read this from you, guess I am on the right track.

Do not worry, even if you think you did not learn anything. I guarantee you, that there are many things you have improved because of the situation and things you have been through. Every day, people learn new things even in the simplest situation. Getting the love you deserve is really fulfilling and it is like an energy that fills up every time you are tired. It is like a unlimited energy.

This post is a right way to share my own reflection about how powerful the love of God can be. The ultimate purpose of our life is love. We should first love God with a pure love. Love that is free from all selfishness is pure.  Pure is a mutual understanding.  When we love God with a pure love, we will find that we are drawn to God for His sake, because He is glorious and worthy of our love, and because loving Him is right and just.

The worst part of it was that the software only worked intermittently and the data was not accurate. You obviously canot confront anyone about what you have discovered if the information is not right.

But what if they could receive a personalized Santa letter in return? Imagine the look of joy on your child’s face as they open up a letter from Santa that is addressed to them and mentions the people and things that they love.

From my past and previous experience in my life I have learned that everything is gonna be okay. There should be a challenge behind it that we must fulfill in order for us to be bolder and stronger. Though it is very tough and very heartbreaking, we still need to stand still and find ways to handle and resolve it. In this process of finding the way, we will become a better version of ourselves than before. And if those challenges hinders your capability as an individual, do not stop there, you should know how to fight for it. And that is what I’ve learned from my past and previous experience in life.

Going to bed a bit earlier or setting your alarm clock a little later can help boost fat burning and prevent weight gain.

Nothing makes a child happier than telling Santa what they want this year and sending their Santa letter off in the mail.
