Stop Avoiding Going Deeper Into The Divine Because You Think You Have To Give Up Everything Cool!

“A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expectlife in its fullness until you overflow!”
.
From The Bible

This was one of those verses that got me doubting EVERY SINGLE THING that I had been taught at church and by various religious leaders.

.

It seemed they were saying ‘sacrifice, sacrifice, give it all up, die in poverty and so on’ whereas this verse by the main man, Jesus, seemed to suggest the very opposite.

.

I felt as though I had given the characteristics of the thief to the Divine.  He was going to take it all away and send me to the back of beyond with no running water (AGAIN, had I not already done my 3rd world country stint? Was that not enough for the Divine?), no clothes, no shoes, no house, nothing and then I would probably be mauled by a lion or killed by the locals as I tried to spread the good news.

.

And when you have that kind of thinking at the back of your mind… well, it is hard to surrender fully to this Deity.

.

Was life not painful enough without then having to lose some more?

.

But I could not shake my love for all things spiritual.  I knew there was something more to this so though I kinda held it a bit at arm’s length, I could not completely let go.

.

And thankfully, I started to realise it is not all sacrifice and giving everything good up.

.

In fact, in reality, there is hardly ANY giving anything good up, unless you choose to, of course.

.

I grew up reading books of self-whipping saints and people trying to live out the crucifixion to show that they were spiritual and again, that scared me but who demanded this of them?

.

I don’t know because it really is not the Divine I know.

.

I feel like we all get a choice and for whatever reason, we humans tend to want to self-flagellate emotionally and sometimes very very physically.

.

There seems to be an inbred thought that we are not worthy and I guess it is not helped by weird teachings like original sin where you are sinner the moment you are born. I cannot believe that I believed that now.  It just seems so crazy when you actually come face to face with LOVE!

.

LOVE does not seek to hurt you.

.

LOVE seeks to LOVE you.

.

LOVE wants you having fun! enjoying life, having a blast.

.

And yet, we doubt this.

.

Even as I type it, I feel the old thoughts within clamouring for attention – How can you say that, Rosemary?!  You might lead everyone astray and then you will go to hell for all eternity?! Of course, life is sadness and suffering and then eternity might be bliss but here we are supposed to suffer, aren’t we?

.

Thankfully, I can see the lie now.

.

And I can hear the gentle voice of the Divine bringing me back home.

.

Yes, in my quest for inner peace, purpose, prosperity and intimate closeness with the Divine, I have lost a lot of things but guess what?!

.

I did not even like them.

.

I held on to them because I thought I had to.

.

Relationships that hurt me.

.

Jobs I did not want to do anymore.

.

Religious ideas that just bound me up and kept me from the Divine/Love.

.

And that is kinda it.

.

I held on so tightly to things I did not want!  How crazy are we?

.

The offer is life in abundance and awesomeness and adventure and joyous laughter and fun and feeling complete and incredible inner peace beyond our understanding but we do not see how that is possible so we would rather choose drama and pain and jobs we dislike and lives that feel lacklustre and religion that tells us we can have happiness in the next life because it seems safer and more certain and everyone we know settled into that so why do we think we could have more?

.

This is the underlying thought but we do not even look that deep to see it for what it is.

.

WE just keep toeing the party line, avoiding going too deep, telling ourselves that our hearts are deceitful beyond all things and so we should listen to some other sad spiritual soul telling us about what we need to give up and how to find a way to be happy with it.

.

Is it any wonder we do not want to go too deep with that?

.

Most spiritual people will just do as little as they think they can get away with to ensure they have hope in the next life but for the most part, you just live life separate from this big scary divine being.

.

Others will just not even give spirituality a second glance.

.

How sad!

.

Because whether you like it or not, you are complete when in connection with the Divine – it is just the way you are created. Yep, you get free will on what to do with that knowledge of who you really are and you can live an okay existence but the moment anything gets shaken, you realise that your trust and hope was in all this other stuff to stay the same when really, none of that is your source.  Some will go through life completely unshaken by life – Cool for them but if you have already been shaken a few times, you already know what I am talking about – the fear, the emptiness, the emotional pain, the inner turmoil.

.

All of that can be alleviated but it will take going within.

.

And if it is just fear of what you will have to give up that stops you, then please stop that nonsense.

.

Realise that you will only ever give up what you did not even want in the first place.

.

LIFE IN ALL ITS ABUNDANCE is on offer when you fall back in love with yourself and the Divine.

.

Why would you say ‘no’ to that?

.

Come back home, my love.

.

Much Amazing Love
