Intro to the Journey

Bob on May 13th, 2012

Great to have you here! I am glad that you stopped by and I hope you will feel free to look around.

 

This site is about a spiritual journey. The vehicle for this journey is not religion, doctrine or dogma. This journey is not about the place where you end up or what you look like. This journey is ALL about one 4 letter word- LOVE!

 

Love from Above is a Free gift and the depth of it is the journey that we are on. There are countless potholes, phenominal fellow travelers and tremendous views along the way. No two journeys are the same and while we may travel on the journey for a time together the majority of growth will happen when we can just be still and in solitude reflect.

 

I am excited you are here and I hope you will read about my journey, listen to the stories I will share and perhaps we will travel together for a while. So come on in, explore and enjoy as we share the wonders of Love, Grace and Peace on the journey!

The only thing you need for spiritual growth in 2013 and beyond are these 6 words- "His Grace is sufficient for me!"

The only thing you need for spiritual growth in 2013 and beyond are these 6 words- “His Grace is sufficient for me!”

Love, Healing our past ..

The on growing work of Love beyond human comprehension allows us to look into The Divine’s mirror of our soul and Heal because of some basic things that are vitally necessary for Grace to grow:

1. We are all In the Healing process – my dad was a great guy, but my dad like all of us wasn’t completely healed until his last exhale. As I look into The Divine’s mirror of my soul I see an image of my father’s unresolved pain, how it affects me and my love for others and in seeing this The Divine who is Love beyond human comprehension can accept that in me and I can heal.

2. Imperfection in our relationships Here and Now Is a big part of the healing process – when we struggle with each other it’s because we struggle with part of our spirit that Needs to heal. To discover this look into the Divine’s Mirror of your soul and be humble about healing you need by asking, “Why did I respond that way?”

3. Recognize the need humbly with Thanksgiving understand that it’s a weak point – when we understand our flaws, humbly approach The Divine Who Is Love beyond human comprehension realizing that while we are Already perfect in the soul because of The Divine Gift But still have healing to do in human areas – then we begin to heal that area. When we are Grateful for that lesson we see another Amazing element to The Divine – Divine Grace beyond comprehension.

4. Humbly walk in this knowledge and understanding – Growing in Grace keeps us humble, Growing in understanding Divine Goodness keeps us Grateful and Growing to Rest in The Gift develops Peace – All this is beyond human comprehension as it is Divine.

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High (Love) will abide in the shadow of the Almighty (Love).” Psalm 91

There are two primary ways that we relate to each other. We either have a role which is governed by rules and boundaries or we have a Relationship which is guided by learning, understanding, caring and compassion.

In a role, even with the best of intentions, we are kept inside a box of thinking and acting in a certain way. With a role we are focused on staying in the lines and if we stray out of those lines we face repercussions.

With a Relationship we have the freedom and are encouraged to learn about ourselves and others, to gain understanding and through that to heal. With a Relationship there is a genuine concern and caring for the other with compassion for and acceptance of each other.

To have a role is in large part to be a puppet. To be in a Relationship is to be in a healing process of acceptance and understanding of self and others.

To have a role is to have check boxes and requirements to keep that role. To be in a Relationship is a state of being that allows for growth and choices to be made with compassion for the other.

My point to all this is that while I was told “Christianity is a relationship not a religion” – the reality was it was taught as, lived as and reinforced as a religion. If we are truly healed “by His scars” then we are in a Relationship from the point of the cross, if not then we have a role with all the boxes to check to keep our status.

The challenge is in our minds we have a god image and that image Needs to be examined to see how it’s affecting our daily lives. Below are some links that you might want to check out if you want to look into your god image:

Healing through Grace

There is a healing that is a journey and for some of us a lifelong journey to leave the hurt and pain for peace and hope. Here is how:

  1. Leave our doing for “Perfect Loves” Did – “It is Finished” means we can stop trying to act righteous and focus on The Love that made us righteous.

  2. Listen to The Lover not the loser – The Lover invites us to Peace and Rest based on Acceptance and Perfect Love – the loser pushes us to struggle for more based on our efforts.

  3. Choose Being over doing – To focus on our Being is to grow love with so we can share love with all. This is seeing ourselves and our inadequacies, growing to rest in Perfect Loves sufficiency (Grace) and in that healing our soul – doing grows ego or depression based on our performance.

The Place of Rest

There is a Place. A Place of Rest. A Place of Peace. A Place of Acceptance. A Place of Hope. A Place of Joy. A Place of Equality. A Place of Healing. A Place of Freedom.

This Place is within each of us but a journey must be made to get there. This journey is in and of itself the healing. This journey is about integrity of the soul and an openness to Rest in Being still and knowing:

  1. Knowing The Divine Is God, The Great I Am, The Beginning and The End, In All, Created All and Controls All.

  2. Knowing The Divine is Perfect Love, Perfect Love that’s beyond human comprehension, Perfect Love that is the source of All.

  3. Knowing that Perfect Love gently guides the soul, opens the soul, accepts the soul and teaches acceptance in the soul and to the soul.

  4. Knowing that in The Acceptance Freely offered by Perfect Love that is in complete control and The Creator of All there is healing and Rest to just Be and Know, Here and Now.

Works of Rest – 2

The opposite of Rest or Faith is stress from a works based model or the desire for “more” than the Beloved state.

This is the reason for “the original sin” – the story of “the fall” is the story of man wanting “more” than Love.

Love whispers for us to Be, more screams at us to Do – in this we see the very nature of The Divine, and The Divine plan of Grace.

The story of “the fall” is the story of us, our wants and our Need – yes singular – Need because All we Need is Perfect Love. Resting in the idea or understanding of The Divine Being Perfect Love and That Love Being beyond human comprehension this Is Abundant Life. On the other hand what kills our Resting are our wants for “more” – “more” always looks good on the outside but biting into it (no pun intended) will always lead to the death of being here now resting in Perfect Love.

Again this series is about shining a light on “Works of Rest” as opposed to works of mans desire, one of which is religion. Resting or “Faithing” in our Being is a growing process of understanding “The Gift” and it’s value.

“but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” … Genesis 2:17

“But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” … Genesis 3:4-5

Unite or divide

True Grace is that which Unites us all in our need for and connection with Perfect Love.

False graces of which there are a multitude are those which much be defended to protect an ideology, theology or group creating divisions between people.

It’s very true that there is strength in unity as unity is a sign of love. When that unity is in Perfect Love, miracles happen. Miracles like:

  1. We are able to open up about our deepest hurt and get acceptance, understanding, encouragement and healing. This enables us to leave addictive behaviors and grow in inner peace.

  2. We are able to realize the fears we have inside and release them resting in the understanding that everything is in the hands of Perfect Love. This allows us to develop relationships and have experiences that bring joyful moments.

  3. We are able to rest in the growing awareness that The Love that embraces us in each and every moment of our lives is beyond human comprehension. This encourages us to see that all things are working together for good and therefore have a hopeful future.

False graces on the other hand play on our fears to divide us by causing:

  1. Conformity of thinking that allows little to no dissent.

  2. An appearance of peace and hope but based on effort and looks.

  3. A secrecy of internal fears and hurt hidden by mask and constant work.

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9

The GraceFull path is one of Rest building “works” that grow greater trust in the Love and ability of The Divine Lover.

Let’s dive into this by looking at the reason and results of some of the greatest stories of The Bible. What we are really looking for is “the why” of what happened.

One example takes us back to the very beginning – the fall of man.

Why was “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” out of bounds and off limits?

Could if have anything to do with teaching future generations that Perfect Love is enough and Rest in what you have?

This is just one example of how the GraceFull path is very different from the religious path. The religious highway will tell you to prove who you are, The GraceFull path invites you to Rest in Divine Perfect Love.

Works of Rest is the start of a new series that I hope you will check out on BeGraceFull.com – in the mean time here are some other links on the subject:

“Redeemed”

Most miss their present state of being because they missed The Gift that got them there.

With that being said I want to examine the Divine Dictionary for another word – “Redeemed” as in the past tense for Redeem – as in the work of “The Redeemer.”

Redeemed is another word we need to understand to grasp the freedom, Peace and most importantly The Love beyond human comprehension that is the very foundation of Grace.

Redeemed means “to regain possession of” but it also means “to fulfill or carry out” and both of these definitions have been crucial to my journey of Grace – here is why:

  1. The Divine “Finished” “regaining possession” of us on the cross. As a species we had tried and we continue to retry (LOL) many false paths to false freedom, peace and love – and well look around you at where we are at. But we pursue these without understanding the “Finished” nature of our current state of Being. To dive into that check out this link: https://www.begracefull.com/let-the-journey-begin/

  2. To “fulfill or carry out” was completed by showing the nature at the very core of The Divine. The cross was the Divine set up from the very foundation of the world so that we could have a Great life Here and Now. From before the start of the evolution of this place we call earth, there was Perfect Love. That Perfect Love always was and always will be and always has been about a passionate and relentless desire to embrace you, hold you and show you Love beyond human comprehension, the cross carried that out.

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” … Galatians 3:13

The Divine Dictionary – 1

The Divine Dictionary calls for definitions that are beyond human knowledge – and in this there is a journey of Amazing Grace IF you just believe in Perfect Love.

But what does it mean to “just believe”?

For me it means:

  1. Rest – even on my darkest days I can Rest in The Solid Rock of Love beyond human comprehension that is in me, surrounds me and protects me.

  2. Rest – in believing that there is a Goodness beyond my ability to see or understand even in the times it seems like it’s just the opposite.

  3. Rest – even in the face of what I consider to be evil, that there is a Divine plan and purpose for it to exist and to show love and understanding toward all involved.

  4. Rest – in the belief that the past is completely forgiven and forgotten, the future is already secured by Perfect Love and this Present Moment is Exactly the one that Perfect Love wants me to have.

  5. Rest – in knowing that fear grows Faith (or greater Rest) and All is Grace and His Grace Is Sufficient.

My hope is to grow the Divine Dictionary to a point where we can develop greater Rest as Rest is what Faith is and Faith in Perfect Love creates not only a perfected soul but also a perfect life.

fear vs Love – 4

Spiritual health I believe is a journey and at times it seems like the road goes in circles. But the circle is straightened out once we learn or remember the lesson.

So what is “the lesson” we need to learn or remember? From my journey and from what I have seen and experienced, spiritual health has 3 main components all building on #3.

  1. Faith – Faith is Resting. And in this resting is a what and a how much, which will grow IF allowed to. The “what” creates the fruit that our life will become. For example if my Faith is in something or someone Other than Perfect Love that drives out All fear, the results will be an unhealthy spirit. If my “what” of Faith is in An All Powerful Being that Loves me with Love beyond human comprehension then Hope is created. As my “how much” grows in the strength of my belief in this Love then my Hope grows as well.

  2. Hope – Hope is an expectation that creates life. Hope is essential for life to exist and like Faith, Hope needs to be built in something that drives out all fear. It’s been my experience that where Hope is faint or lacking the foundation of the hope is on something or someone other than Perfect Love.

  3. Love – Love, Perfect Love that drives out all fear is the foundation of Faith and Hope, it is the very “Solid Rock” upon which all really good life is built. The opposite of Perfect Love is fear. This is why as the Hope of Perfect Love is Rested (Faith) in the fear that got us TO Perfect Love leaves and our Spiritual Life grows as our religious existence diminishes.

So putting this all together looks like this for me:

The Divine allows things to happen and in fact creates things (religious law for example) to cause difficulties and even impossibilities. The events and impossibilities are allowed so we will grow Rest (Faith) in the Hope that we are Loved beyond human comprehension by The Divine because Faith (Rest) in this Perfect Love creates a life of Peace, Hope, Joy, Acceptance, Patience and basically all the Goodness that makes Life Beautiful.

I hope and pray that you will decide to take a GraceFull journey and dig into these studies below as well as others on the site BeGraceFull.com – Thank you for reading this one:
