Love

"When you believe that you are justified in not forgiving someone else, you are punishing yourself."

Marcus Thomas

"The power of God doesn’t come from observing scripture alone. The power of God comes through the living the way, the life and truth of love in your actions moment to moment as the your experience."

Marcus Thomas

"If you’re going to show men or women sexy pics of yourself online, they are not going to be interested in being with you. They are going to be interested in just having sex with you. Today, sexy pics online has become a form of “social prostitution,” selling yourself as this “object” so you can be noticed, admired, or attempt to get a person to love you. But, if you need to sell yourself as this “object”, to be loved, then must think you are not worthy enough to be loved, as you are. You must believe on some level no one wants me unless I do this or that to get what you want. But, true love has no requirements for you to be loved, it happens effortlessly between two individuals. You do not have to chase it, for it inside your heart. You must learn to be it by sharing that what gives your joy, and the one who see you will become attracted to the love you emanate, because you are honoring who you are."

Marcus Thomas

Rejoice for Love is here

There is no time. There is only Now.

Oh, when I look upon you face
my heart is enamored with joy,
my eyes fill up with tears,
because, I see the face of Christ
the face of divine love in your eyes
I weep from such joys, and happiness
because, I’ve missed this for so long,

Ohhh, my Father-Mother God,
I have forgotten how all-encompassing
and boundlessness is your love
and when you see me my brother and sisters
I know you see love, you see the Christ
you see your Father in Heaven
you see yourself
and you remember that love is the only truth
and the rest in this world,
is nothing but an illusion

And, you take this message of love
and you share it with others,
you share it in your walk,
in your talk
in your actions

you refuse to judge your brother,
you choose to hold him or her
in the bosom of acceptance
you listen with him,
you feel with her
you live for a moment in their world
and lift them up to the Reality of yours
that is your purpose
to help each other remember and teach
only love, for that is what we are
until the plan of the Father is complete

Rejoice!
Rejoice, for the Love of God is always available
here and now

"Love is not a contract. It is not conditional agreement. It is not possessing, controlling, manipulating, judging or attacking. It is unconditional, accepting, and effortless. It has no requirements. It lives, and let live. It extends to everyone, because, it cannot be contain, for its grandeur is beyond human conception. It can be felt, it can be shared. It is not something you have to chase, or get. For, everyone has it. But, everyone does not remember they have it within them. It is never exclusive, but inclusive for it is born within everyone. It comes and goes where it wants. It is never lacking, it is always present, and undying. It is eternal. It is not of the earth, it is of Heaven. Anything else, is the artificial version"

Marcus Thomas

"If you forgive someone you are not condoning what they have done to you or another, you are choosing to live with a loving heart and a peaceful mind."

The Man Who Died From Cancer: A Story of Healing

Reality is what you see from your mind.
Perception is how you see it.

When you see Reality and you judge, argue, attack, or deny what is so, you suffer because you are using your perception to not accept what is, and to create Reality in your own image. This is not wrong but incorrect. You are using your thoughts you give your own meaning to Reality to avoid what you don’t want. Rather than accepting Reality for what it is and be at peace with it, even if you don’t agree with it.

Example of Incorrect Use of Perception:
You arrive at the hospital see the one you love that has cancer, on the bedside in their last moments. They die and you say to yourself, “He shouldn’t have died.” You are “wanting” to deny the Reality, that they died. So, you become angry, your body tenses up, you lash out at the doctors. They tell you, they can’t do anymore and they are sorry. But, you are blinded by your thoughts, your anger, your resistance to Reality. Your family calms you down, grabs hold of you.

Example of Correct Use of Perception:
20mins later, you sit and you accept the Reality, that your loved one just died. And, you release that anger, that resistance and emotions by crying, you cry until there is nothing else to cry about. Moving that stagnant energy to motion is what e-motions are. Energy in motion. Afterwards, you feel peace, your mind is literally, blank. You are clear. You know you are okay. Now, that is a healing. That’s God working for you, through you. This is how spirituality is lived.

To conclude, your thoughts about Reality, either creates suffering or peace. You are always the one creating. When you project your thoughts onto reality, you lose. When you accept reality, you win. Growth happens either way for you to wake up like Plato.

"The greatest acceptance is to accept yourself as you are right now, and not for who you want to be. To accept others for who they are, not for who you want them to be. To accept Life as it is this moment, not for what you want it to be. By releasing your expectations about how you want outer circumstances to be, you bring an inner acceptance to what appears and your state of peace remains unshakable regardless of how life appears. This is love without conditions. Experiencing your self as life unfolding, participating and being."

Marcus Thomas

"Men call me Christ, and God has recognized the name; but Christ is not a man. The Christ is universal love, and Love is king."

Jesus

"The Divine can never fail you, nor can you fail the Divine. You can make as many errors until you decide to correct them. Unlimited opportunities for growth. That’s how unconditionally loving the Divine is. Failure doesn’t exist in the heart of love. It only exist within our own beliefs, in our minds."

Marcus Thomas
We are all on the journey. We do not have to be perfect. We are all doing the best with the consciousness we have at this moment. All are welcomed.

Article: What Imaginary Fortress Surrounds Your Heart?

There is a spot inside you that you feel most vulnerable to not share with others due to your shame, the belief that this part of you is unworthy to be loved. That secret part of you is the key to your healing and the belief of fear that keeps you there. If you really want to love your self you have to share that private wounded or discarded place with others without judgment, fear and unworthiness, to love and accept yourself. That is the courage of being you. - Marcus Thomas

The walls you have built around your heart, are imagined. They’re not real. You placed them there. Therefore, they can be removed by you.

If you tear your own walls down, you can let the closed up damn of love to flow outward into the world, towards others. By taking down these defenses, and opening your heart, you can experience the love within your own heart that you say is not there, but it really is, you’re just afraid of letting it out to experience your own love and glory.

How can the flower, blossom without water?
How can you the love within your heart, be experienced if the door to it is always closed?


You are the door, once you open your heart, the boundlessness of love overflows.

Ask yourself, what walls or fortresses you have created around you own heart? And, ask why are they there? What do you believe will happen? Who would you be without these fearful walls around your heart? Do I want to be right or be happy?

In every circumstance, I tell you, it is fear that keeps you from loving yourself and another. And, it is this fear you have placed there but, only you can remove yourself. Wanting to be right is a form of fear. To keep your position of rightness is what keeps you apart from love and another.

Every defense you think is protecting you from heartache is actually keeping you from experiencing love. Therefore, you experience yourself as separate from another, instead of one, being connected to another, your natural inhertiance.

Take down the defenses and love again. It’s not world war 3, its love.

Article: Are you listening to the Divine?

Are you listening to the Divine? Have you ever received intuitive wisdom?

Have you ever been in the presence of someone and you just knew you loved them?

Or, just knew something about them you did not know the moment before?

Like the information, image, just guided you, directed you, or dropped in your lap?

The information you received in a split moment, kept you alive or safe, just when you need it?

This is always the Divine speaking to you. Without rules, books, authority figures, etc; Just you and The Divine.

I receive direction always, not become I’m better or worser than anyone. But, because, my heart and my is open to God, revealing itself in unlimited ways, not in ways that “I” expect her or him too.

It is an “allowing” and giving up control and expectations. Then, what ever you need is given, even before you ask.

I wasn’t taught this by any particular church or religion. The information or wisdom is always there present within me, it is just revealed when I am ready. Like the saying, when the student is ready, the teacher appears.

So, I do not go to church, because, I do not need it. I do not praise any man as worser or lesser than I, because, I do not need an outer authority, to know who and what I am. God qualifies the called. And, being of service here is just as important as anywhere else.

The temple, the source is within me, and all around me. Not in buildings of wood and stone. It is in my brothers and sisters. In mother nature, in the heavens above, below and through all of life is being lived emanating around me. I love serving and being a example for all of you in the ways I do.

I just wanted to share that experience to let you know, you’re not alone in that being the only one. It happens to many of us.

Article: I Didn’t Realize What Love Was Until… A Story of Awakening

When I believe I need your love, I fall asleep. I lose the awareness that it is already within me. I do not experience I have it anymore. So, I look to you, someone outside me, to provide love, because, I believe I do not have it.

When you give it, I am happy, when you take it away I am sad. I begin to be angry with you, resent you, and eventually hate you, because, you are not meeting my need for love. You’re not giving me the sex I want. You’re not giving me the approval or appreciation I need so, I have a fit. Then, I leave you.

"Our defenses reflect our wounds. But no person can heal those wounds." - Marianne Williamson

I believe I experience heartbreak. But, I am really experiencing the loss of attachment to need going. Then, I am alone. I eventually, come to accept its over. Then, I look to another person to fulfill the insecure need for love, I believe I do not have and then, it happens all over again. It keeps happening, until I begin to provide love to myself, my needs, my own insecurities. I have to begin to love and accept myself. No one else will do that for me.

"We believe our thoughts and we lose the awareness of our love. That thought become the obstacle to love." - The Work of Byron Katie

Later, I come to realize, she was never responsible for giving me love, and that it is my sole responsibility. I forgive her and myself. I begin to move on. I begin to be happy for my own accord. I understand love is not a need, but an energy that comes from me, and I experience it when I extend it to others. Like, my dog for example.

One day, I’m out at the beach, walking my dog and I meet a girl, sitting on the sand, reading a book that I was reading two days ago. I ask her, what she thinks of the book, and conversation, attraction and three years later a marriage springs from there. I ask myself, was it a coincidence, I met her on the beach that evening, reading that book, in that moment?

I realize, it was no accident, that life, God or the Universe conspired in my awakening to the love that was always within me, and gave me the opportunity to see if I was truly ready to love again without conditions, fears and insecurities.

And, guess what? I was. I was certain.

Article: The Journey of Spirit

The journey of the spirit, begins when you decide to let go of the belief that the world will bring you what you are seeking. It is a movement of consciousness from a betrayal of self, not knowing the self, to honoring yourself and knowing who you are.

You begin to stop focusing on just “doing” and return your attention to your “being.”

You start to withdraw from the outer world and begin to turn your attention towards your self.

You take time away from others, to give time to be alone with you. You become comfortable with aloneness.

You stop being afraid and hiding who you are, and begin to allow and reveal your true presence.

You cease to live in the past, or project into the future. You focus on the joy of being alive, here and now.

You give up your story, your identification with the outer world.

You accept the present moment, including circumstances as the only reality that exists.

You realize that all things are impermanent. They come and go. They rise as a wave and return to the ocean. Therefore, you remain detached to objects that come and go but, you enjoy them in the present moment fully.

You stop making every one else responsible for your happiness and become responsible for providing it to your self.

You cease to be dependent on others to determine who you are, the decisions you make, and knowing your direction in life.

You begin to be honest, transparent and act from a place of integrity. You cease pretending to be something you’re not, and just be yourself.

You understand that being attached to the results of your actions leads to suffering while, focusing on just the intention does not.

You are content with where you are, what you have and the things you do.

You stop finding fault with your self, others and the world to and begin to inquire and accept your own dark and light qualities as part of a whole being.

You stop looking for others to be the source for what you think you do not have, and be the source of your own being.

You stop critiquing, judging, resisting and rejecting life and you begin to allow life to flow by accepting reality as it is.
