In the World but not of it

 

For, "All Flesh Is Like Grass, And All Its Glory Like The Flower Of Grass. The Grass Withers, And The Flower Falls Off, But THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER."

1 Peter 1:24

 

Jesus, the Light of the World
22So the Jews were saying, "Surely He will not kill Himself, will He, since He says, 'Where I am going, you cannot come'?" 23 And He was saying to them, "You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.''

John 8: 22-23

 

They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.

1 John 4:5

 

 

 

I wish I was in Heaven. There is just too much suffering in the world. But when it gets down to it I am not ready to go because I want everyone to go, not just myself.

 


This is the unselfish vow of not going to heaven until everyone is also going. The paradox is that everyone is going who is going and those who are lost in ignorance will never go and will be lost.

 

In the middle are those who are undecided or caught up in the world and could go either way. There are three types.

 

I can connect and vibrate with most people but those deep in the world of ignorance I don't try to argue with them because no matter how hard I try they will never change or it will take a very long time and drain my energy in the meantime.

 

All is vanity in the material world, because it will pass away.

 

So is it vain to try to keep your body, hair and facial skin in good condition? No, because while you are in this body this is your form that reflects your true Form in Heaven i.e. the pleroma.

 

Your face and body form reflects into the world a message of peace, health and friendliness or sadness, weakness and indifference. The body weakens and dies, how fast depends on how you care for it, just like an automobile.

 

Suicide is another form of wanting to leave the world. The cost of suicide is automatic rebirth into the material world because murder is murder and you killed your self, so it is never an escape.

 

Euthanasia can happen in a hospital or if a person slowly kills themselves by overeating, not exercising, smoking and taking drugs both recreational and prescription.

 

Euthanasia should be replaced with Youthanasia or caring for yourself so your body stays young allowing you to be of service to the world.

 

Some people say why not have expensive cars and luxury if you want since we are going to die anyway, just live it up, and enjoy life.

 

All these things take a toll on you, they take a piece of you, some part of you will be thinking of them or worrying about them.

 

The really luxurious life is having so few desires and wants that you are content with little in life. Some nice clothes nothing too fancy like designer clothing, a nice house but not a super mansion and just enough good food. Some extra money for books, movies, tv and your done.

 

A car may be needed for work in some places but a large number of people don't need them and use public transportation. Driving is stressful and it takes a toll on your being having to always be on the alert for traffic and pedestrians.

 

Living simply is really the lifestyle of the rich (in spirit) and famous (well known by Christ). Fame and popularity are so ephemeral like a mirage in the desert so seemingly real, but so unlasting and illusory. Can money buy happiness, yes on a limited earthly level, to have physical comfort, but in reality the physical is not reliable and is impermanent. Happiness with a capital H can not be bought with money, it's a gift given freely by Grace from God, all you need to do is open your heart and accept it, with tears of joy flowing from your eyes. You are a Human Spirit Being emanated spiritually by God and your true home is Spirit, Heaven, Your True Eternal Home and not the ephemeral, always changing material world.
