Have you ever noticed that there are a lot of sad and unhappy people around, both before and after a Separation as well as in life in general, if you can truly see into their soul? Have you also noticed what and why you and many people do what you do, and why and how you are being limited?
Although there is many a reason, purpose and meaning to life, what touches and controls your most inner being is that that of feelings. Whether you like it or not, it's the way you were designed to operate as a sensory being feeling all that life and your environment has to offer.
When comparing feeling totally alive with that of simply existing, what would you choose?
Is it no wonder people everywhere are slaves to their feelings, riding the roller coaster of emotion, doing things that may or may not benefit themselves or others either short or long term, simply just to get that feeling, that thrill of power or kick of instant gratification.
Confused what are you to do? Let your feelings out and run wild feeling truly alive or to suppress them, keeping them and your life locked up in a box and all for what?
On one hand you can be rational, calm, controlled, respectful and a good person walking around happy or at least pretending to be. Carrying on with life's little activities, working and keeping busy as you build people and materialistic structures in your life to represent some form of security and justification providing that all important meaning to your life. Seen merely as a sedative and sleeping tablet if you will, to help you cope with a life that is short on fulfillment, huge challenges and excitement, pulling in those heart racing pangs of feeling truly alive.
On the other hand, you can run free, burst out of the bubble you have been trapped in for so long and do what makes you feel good. For feeling good is not the crime, feeling miserable is.
No matter what anyone thinks or says, no one can sit in real judgment on another and what you do in your life, only yourself. Neither your family, others, Jesus, God or Spirit just you. Your conscience, your heart and soul will be your judge, for you will always know and on that last day of your life, you will look back to see all the good you have done and feel the aliveness that was at your fingertips and hope to be only grateful for doing everything you wanted to experience. Then, and only then, will you find peace.
"And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day." - John 12:47-48
So let your conscience and feelings drive your life to a place of dizzying heights on a mission to better the lives of others, for this goodness will be automatically showered upon you too.
It may not be an easy mission, nor without risk and danger, however it is one that you know you must take for it it be the only path that will set you free and make you feel truly alive.
Only through feeling passion and love will you truly come alive, with this being contagious bringing families, communities and the whole planet alive too.
