Many seek and don't realize they are seeking. Many don't seek because they already posess the light, and though, not realizing, they are following it. Trust to the power that everyone is, and will continue to be exactly where they are supposed to be. Nothing more, nothing less.
I was simply referring to the title of this thread. My post didn't indicate anything about doing whatever everybody tells me to do. I don't read a evil time book, but I love to read the holy bible which is inspired by a loving, awesome God.
Castlepaloma, I agree with you. We need to help ourself first to give God something to work with. First of all, I apply faith with God's true word. This is how I help myself in order for God to intervene. I serve God first by seeking him for direction in my life and in helping others. I respectfully disagree. Serving oneself first is selfish behavior. Sorry, when I posted, I only desired to answer the question of this thread which is about seeking God. Have a nice day.
No not at all. The younger one is the less preconceptions they have. Because conditioning hasn't cemented their way of being. There sense of what is within is there although hormones tend to interfere a little. But their sense of what is, is far more acute then an adult. An intellectual understanding may and sometimes does take away the inner experience.
I don't disagree. What is it we are teaching in these areas. What enhances or what suppresses? What gives rise to balance or what gives rise to leaning this way or that. The middle road is always a good choice. If we do not have the tools to choose though. What is it we will be choosing?
Pettidee: What is this god thing you mention? I don't think you know. I think all you have is an opinion and hope. Pls give me a response that is logical and not based upon "opinion." I don't think you can do it. : Qwark
Don't you understand--you are not endowed with superpowers from the planet Krypton. If you were, you could see things regular mortals just don't have the power to see. You could also leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Superman has X-ray vision, therefore he can see things that we can't see. However, that is confined to the pages of Marvel Comics. If I imagined that I had powers beyond human capabilities, I would consider refraining from comics for awhile.
So, Nostradamus never saw a thing, and neither did Edgar Cayce? I can predict what will happen in the next couple of seconds. With proper data feed, I can do it on a large scale. Jules Verne never saw a thing. DaVinci never saw a thing. Newton secret prophecies are in the Vatican, but, he never saw a thing. When it hits you, you won't feel it. You'll never have seen a thing!

Preconceptions play havoc with our understanding of ALL that we come in contact with.
Imagine reading a legal and binding contract having a multitude of preconceptions, concerning the things that you THINK that you are reading.
Preconceptions are a BAD thing when reading anything. And we are all caught up in them much more than can we realize. If we are not careful we miss the intended message.
