Can you reach God?

Posted on Facebook from a friend of mine in 2020:

I have often heard people say that God expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. Why? Because that is what Genesis says. But, as we know, God is a God of unconditional love. Does a God of unconditional love expel his children?

No, I think it makes much more sense that Adam and Eve left of their own accord, because their hearts could not remain in the garden. It may have FELT like they were expelled, but I can't see God doing that.

My husband experience with God:

What the gentleman said above makes sense. My own husband testimony matched what is said. When my husband was 19 years old, he wanted to know God, and so he did. But when he met God and found himself next to God, he could not stay there. The love of God was so intense that his whole being could not handle it. He looks down and saw himself as he was, and he did not want to be that person, but he had no choice. He gradually went down to his own level. God did not push him away. My husband, as a very young man, was immature and had much to learn and had to go back to his own level and continue his spiritual and heartistic growth so that he could be able to be with God.

So, yes, we can reach God, it will take diligence, education, time, humility, perseverance, and much unconditional love. God is not the one pushing us away.

Learning how to Love

Describing how to love another human being and our surrounding beautiful universe might be necessary education for many. We are told that we must love, but what does that really means.

I think too many people actually do not know how to love, what does love truly means, how
does one manifest love. Love is not describe well at all on Google or the dictionary. A greater understanding of what love is necessary.

My personal explanation of how to manifest basic love is below – in that order.

  1. Respect
    1. If someone is respectful towards someone else, that person will be listened to when the time comes to speak.
    2. Respect will nurture trust
  2. Listen spoken and un-spoken words.
    1. If someone is able to listen and pay attention, then this person will be allowed to speak and teach when the time comes.
  3. Serve and protect
    1. A person who serves will be listened to, and respected.
  4. Educate
    1. Teaching someone is possible when the person we are teaching feels that they are respected and listen to as well.
  5. Accept service
    1. For many good people it is easier to served than to accept service, however, letting someone serve you is a very good way to let them know that you respect them as well as trust them.

All the above describe True Love and are the basic component necessary to manifest True Love towards others. I know there are a lot more, but these are first, I think.

Update: August 20, 2022 - as I was telling that to someone today, it was mentioned to me that "Honesty" has to be part of it. I fully agree with that.

So here it is - for now - You are welcome to comment.

A dream about True Mother

Dr. Hak Ja Han MoonI had my very first dream with True Mother. She gave a gift to Andrea and I, but I cannot remember the gift. I do not remember her entourage; they were very much not there.

She was her age but using her body like a young person would do. For example, she jumped up at some point to sit on the ledge of a shelf so that she could talk to me.

I remember looking for something to sit on like a chair, I don’t remember if I did.

What I understood from her small talk to me was that it was hard for her to have a true friend, someone who can stick. She has had but they don’t stay for long because they have other commitments.

Looks like she was looking for someone who would stay with her always who would not have any other focus. She was not sad, or complaining, she was simply reporting.

The art of serving

A few days ago, I received the reflection below because of a short testimony I gave at Morning Devotion.
Thank you for your testimony this morning. I cried sooo much because of it.

I responded to this person with the following:
That is why we should not be shy to share because we never know how a simple testimony can affect someone.

Because I have shared several times in recent weeks, yesterday thoughts came to my mind about “The art of serving”. I came up with 3 things:

  1. Serving: doing something for someone else – that is the easiest for anyone with a good heart and good conscience.
  2. Ability to ask for help, that is often more difficult to do, especially for people who have a good heart and conscience.
  3. Finding people who need help, so they can be helped. This require an additional effort of thinking and acting.

Any comments any one?
