Prosperity can lead to a sense of independence
that blinds us
to how inadequate we actually are to provide for ourselves.

“Every doctrine that is caught up with some sort of lie is enough to cast people into misfortune!
It doesn’t always have to be related to cruelty and vice.
Falsehood darkens the pure knowledge of God.
It is like dark clouds covering the sun.”
(The Great Pyramid Reveals its Secret – Roselis von Sass)
Love may be like a form of insanity, but for sure it will be a pleasant one and a toxic one. Nothing can build up or create so many things than love, be it love for a job or for a person. Without love for a person the ‘I’ is left behind to become a ‘Me’, forgetting how more important it would be to have more ‘We’ in this world. Without love not only the world would become a place of selfish people, only interested in themselves, but also not willing to take care of others around them and as such abandoning the world around him or her.
Love is that what can be deep in us but gives a radiation seen far out of us. That radiation also becomes more toxic or contaminating others. This infectious situation is necessary for humankind to bring catching moments which can enlighten life of many.
Love is the sweetest butter life can bring. The clotted cream to have the scones of life the best to keep us going.
For even the most resilient and positive of us, life can become oppressive, frightening and bleak sometimes, and when it does we have to make more of a conscious effort than ever before to maintain sanity and peace of mind. Bad news is infectious, but, while we’re sulking and entertaining this negativity, the beauty of our lives continues on before our eyes, and if we don’t actively reset ourselves, then we miss out on the joy that is life, and we overlook the astounding beauty that lies in each moment. Life is a gift and a treasure, and the best revenge truly is living well.
Being in the teens and having to been confronted with such ‘abhorrence’ should be avoided.
That is why such a prayer shall need to be held in our minds still for years to come, until we may see an end on this present world-system.
At the moment many shall still have to be patient and should have the courage to come out the darkness covering this sun not letting them bring it in blindness. We all should help others to see light in the dark and bring faith in their souls.

Whenever they are attending to the Enemy Himself we are defeated, but there are ways of preventing them from doing so. The simplest is to turn their gaze away from Him towards themselves. Keep them watching their own minds and trying to produce feelings there by the action of their own wills. When they meant to ask Him for charity, let them, instead, start trying to manufacture charitable feelings for themselves and not notice that this is what they are doing. When they meant to pray for courage, let them really be trying to feel brave. When they say they are praying for forgiveness, let them be trying to feel forgiven. Teach them to estimate the value of each prayer by their success in producing the desired feeling; and never let them suspect how much success or failure of that kind depends on whether they are well or ill, fresh or tired, at the moment.

Sometimes it takes darkness to realize how much we need prayer in our lives. I learned this lesson during the lowest of lows in my own life. It was springtime in 1997. It should’ve been a happy season for me as I had recently given birth to my second child, a son. But instead of feeling joy, I had an overwhelming sense of despair that I couldn’t shake off without a true, divine intervention.
- Little Springtime Prayer by Helen Rice (snowwhitedove.wordpress.com)
For how can man feel any fear or doubt
When on every side all around and about
The March winds blow across a man’s face
And whisper of God’s power and grace?
Oh, give us faith to believe again
That peace on earth, good will to men
Will follow this winter of man’s mind
And awaken his heart and make him kind…
- A Prayer A Day – 4/10/2014 It’s All His and He’s Got You! (dailyprayerprayertogod.wordpress.com)
When we pray and ask the Lord to give us His kind of faith. When we pray and ask the Lord to give us determination to live a life that is pleasing and holy to Him. When we pray and ask the Lord to keep us on the path of righteousness and holiness. When we pray and say to the Lord, “Lord I want to fulfill my purpose and my destiny in you”. We better get ourselves prepared for the shaking that will take place to remove all the dead things from our lives. We better get ourselves prepared for the shaking that will take place to cause us to stand upright. We better get ourselves prepared for the shaking that will take place to get everything lined up in our lives to do the will of the Father.

Grant me the courage to say no, to say yes and follow through ’til the end.
Grant me love so that I may care and so that I may see and that I may do.
Grant me sleep, deep and joyful, and honest, with dreams that may come true.

Italy’s bishops have adopted a policy, with backing from the Vatican, that states they are not obliged to inform police officers if they suspect a child has been molested. The Italian Bishops’ Conference said the guidelines published on Friday reflected suggestions from the Vatican’s office that handles sex abuse investigations.
(I wrote this when I was in my teens)
Please help this wretched soul. She feels so empty, so sad…
She things she is worthless being, who only has the power to hurt the people she loves.
She is so afraid and lonely.
She has no one to turn to because she chooses to distance herself from people.
She is afraid to let anyone get too close, because then she’ll care,
And soon or later she’ll hurt the person, or she’ll get hurt…
And soon or later they all leave…
She cannot stand the pain.
The pain comes suddenly to her heart, stabbing, twisting, digging in deeper.
Such pain… such misery…
The pain won’t let her breathe. The pain stops her heart from beating.
She struggles in the blackest sea, to keep her head above water.
She screams for help but nothing but the freezing water answer…

So many people may feel betrayed by this life, or by the life their parents presented them. We can find many people who have been wounded by the people around them and by the traps they fell into.
Many have lost hope in the One Whom they call From Above. But they forget He is and always shall be with them. But He knows, because humankind doubted His right to rule, that His Light shall be able to shine in the darkness and to touch some feeble souls. Those who are willing to look for Him shall be able to find Him.
Since it is a life or death matter to know the supreme Sovereign, the following article is of vital importance to you.
THE name Jehovah is the grandest name in all the universe. It is the self-given name of the Creator. It is the name of the only true and living God.
The time is soon coming when every creature that lives must know and worship Jehovah.
Time will move on,
You will move on.
But I will stop.
Drained of all energy or brightness.
We long for colour and vitality.
Must I cling onto life, so my actions can be redeemed?
Whose voice is there in the shadows, is it someone that I know?
“Come here” under your breath.
The redness of the inside,
Bare feet sinking into a riverbed.
