Redesigning Ourselves

Praying For Each Other

Everyday selfishness is what prevents humanity from coming together to defeat the evilness that rules this world. Human nature, by design, is filled with selfishness but this does not mean that we cannot redesign ourselves. But the problem is that many do not know how to do this . . . many have not yet found it within their hearts the will to redesign themselves.

People wrongfully believe that redesigning themselves comes from within. It does to a certain extent but the percentage is small compared to asking God for help and guidance. That’s because when you attempt to redesign yourself without God’s help, you rely on the power found within you, and that power is humanly-derived; it can only take you so far.

That’s why you need God’s power to more effectively redesign yourself, and that can only be achieved by accepting and loving God in your mind and heart. Don’t bother if you’re going to be superficial about it; God knows you better than you know yourself. You must put God before your parents, siblings and significant other . . . you must put God before any human.

If you disagree with this, then you are disagreeing with the idea of putting your maker or creator before other humans. If it were not for God, you would have never had life and the chance to meet these humans who you call your “family.” God has blessed you with life, so if you want to redesign it, you must go back and reconnect with the source!

Fancy rituals, prayers in public, avoidance of certain foods, animal sacrifices . . . this is not what God is looking for; He does not want religious nuts but spiritual fruits! What God wants is a pure loving heart that is selfless and prays for others to improve as well. In praying for each other, you are not only redesigning yourself but are contributing to the improvement of others’ lives.

This is how humanity will improve and this is how we will better tackle mental illness, substance abuse, hatred, division and worldly pandemics.

This is how we will come together and love each other just the way that God envisions it for us.

Castle In The Sky

Praying While Looking At The Sky

Every day is a new opportunity to thank The Lord for your blessings. Even if you are not a believer, don’t be ashamed to start praying today. Just the very act of thinking about turning to The Lord is proof that you are heading in the right direction. It’s one of the most wonderful feelings to pray while looking at the sky, being thankful for everything that you have. The castle in the sky sees all.

The best part of the castle in the sky is that it’s free to anybody who seeks it, as long as your heart is in the right place. Almost everyone seeks or wishes for eternal life, but not everyone turns in the right direction to find it. By starting to pray today, you are opening yourself up to God’s love and compassion.

And God can be of great help in your life if you just allow Him to guide you. It’s not easy to be guided however. As humans, we are very stubborn and in touch with our flesh; the flesh embodies the roots of all evil. Our body is like a pot of soil; in it can grow beautiful flowers or thorny roses.

It’s not what goes into a man that defiles him, but what comes out of his heart. You can be eating all the pork in the world, but if your heart is golden and full of love, then you remain in good hands. But if you eat appropriate food and fast, while your heart is rotten, then that’s equivalent to zero.

God doesn’t want religious nuts, but spiritual fruits! And you can become a spiritual fruit today, but starting to pray in the privacy of your home. No one has to know that you’re doing it. God likes it when you pray in the privacy of your home; He will reward you plentiful in public!

So don’t lose hope in life, because God is always available to comfort you. You just have to be willing to seek His help and guidance and love Him with all your mind and heart.
