HISTORY WITH GOD "But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it." I Samuel 17:34-35
Saul was genuinely concerned about David going to fight Goliath because of his youthfulness but David knew something Saul didn't know. David had history with God; he had seen God perform in the past and knew God doesn't change.
What is your history with God? What has God done in your life in the past? Knowing what God has done in your life in the past is an anchor and a reference point for the future because God cannot change. If He delivered yesterday, He will surely do it today and tomorrow.
Think about this: - What is your history with God?
Action plan: - Write down the past goodness of God in your life as a reference for the future.
“The aim of far too many teachings these days is to make people “feel good,” and even some Buddhist masters are beginning to sound like New Age apostles. Their talks are entirely devoted to validating the manifestation of ego and endorsing the “rightness” of our feelings, neither of which have anything to do with the teachings we find in the pith instructions. So, if you are only concerned about feeling good, you are far better off having a full body massage or listening to some uplifting or life-affirming music than receiving dharma teachings, which were definitely not designed to cheer you up. On the contrary, the dharma was devised specifically to expose your failings and make you feel awful.”
- Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
Sometimes what we want, and most desire, is impossible. The past is the past, but trauma turns it into the present. A horrible alchemy of mathematics and emotions. This is the constant challenge that has faced me almost every hour of every day for 2 and half years. "Moving on" is impractical when confronted with an equation like that. But "moving forward" with that terrible pain is the burden those of us who have survived evil endure. I do not claim to have found an answer for this question in all this time, but I am AWARE of it. Awareness and indeed , recognition of the reality, may lead to some answers. They have not been comfortable to process, but that I am still here infers that not all is lost. There is always hope for a better tommorow... #thoughts#wisdom#myjourney#reflection#understandingisathreeeedgedsword#mytruth#trauma#loss#movingforward#survivors#survivorsguilt#fullmetalalchemist

This simple life quote has different levels of life #wisdom to it.
When a person says -
"that is how it's.. I will never change... you better learn to adjust with it.. or it will become harder for you to keep up with me my dear!"
When a elder person says -
"that is how it's.. the way life unfolds before us in its mysterious ways and how it works in accordance to our willpower to an extent yet is unpredictable. Accept it and you will be relieved of all the anxieties dear!"
When a powerful man who enslaves you says -
"that's how it's.. human rights is a myth.. and after a point no one cares about others lives.. now if you want to stay alive listen to what I'm going to order you all useless rats!!"
The choice is ours to make to let whom guide us ahead - the ruthlessly impressive and cunningly powerful or the spiritually conscious and intellectually mature ones.
And most of the ignorant humans have made their unconsciously manifested choice!
All of that false ideas of selfishness inspired "positivity" and this is where life have led us all onto.
Day 1 - Week Preview
To kick off a six day dive into how to feel more connected to the people around us, here’s something Virginia Woolf said: “The eyes of others our prisons; their thoughts our cages.” But we can’t be imprisoned by the thoughts and opinions of others unless we put ourselves in those cages. So this week we’re working with a liberating principle to help build more supportive, positive relationships with others: instead of thinking about what other people think of you, focus on what you think of them.
We’ll look at how this shift helps you to inhabit your own body and feel more grounded; redefine friendship so you can be confident in your right to choose your friends (instead of waiting for them to choose you), and then put this principle into action for a whole day.
When people walk away from you, let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn't mean they are bad people. It just means that their part in your story is over.⠀
