What is YOUR perception regarding life, situations, and circumstances go? Is your attitude
towards life, situations, and circumstances generally positive/optimistic or negative/pessimistic?
Generally optimistic. It is all a play of forces .. a divine Lila or necessary game. It is evolution in motion, spiritual evolution. One does not jump but moves forward slowly, and experiences come, which are all necessary for the growth and fulfillment of the individual Soul. This whole thing exists for this purpose, for the Soul to find its way Home.
Pain comes as part of the process and the physical is a part of it. So far, it is not designed to be pain-free, and we see this pain or struggle, manifested also in the lives of the greatest Saints and Sages. As long as we have the body, we have to pay the price.
Knowing all this makes me optimistic, and fills me with the spirit of acceptance. Knowing that I am the Soul, immortal and ultimately free gives me an added and special bonus. Hence I look at life's circumstances, as part and parcel of the process, in an affirmitive light.
As an example, a outsider says you are a bad parent , they are jealous of you, so they see your kids alone and say your mother has lied to you, listen to me do what you want. You go home and do this and reap what you put out. Was that your fault?
This is an experience that is personal and would require you to deal with it. How it's dealt with may or may notbe according to your graces. It would none-the-less be an experience that teaches. We are really here to learn life lessons, and move on.
The example given was what our heavenly Father went through. It was not his fault that a free moral angel or human use their power willfully in the wrong way,
The situation effects us all as humans, and people seem to judge what they do not know .
I am a servant. if my message reaches you, then I am happy, Kiss. You are a unique child of God and essentially quite special. You are the greatest book that ever will be. Pray, love, serve ...go within and find your answers.
Manatita44 you are a kind and positive person , I appreciate your kind reply
And I certainly believe we all are special and have wonderful gifts with in ourselfs,
But I know that if would not have been for the heavenly Father we would not be.
You are right! God first, second and last. There is nothing else. But to know this, what's required is not mental analysis. Go beyond the mind. Bring down in your life the twins of self-effort and God's Grace, my dear Kiss. Much peace.
I suppose I am negative/pessimistic. My husband is positive/optimistic, so we balance each other out.
My personality swings both ways though as I truly believe that nothing is totally bad and nothing is totally good. Everything just is.
The saying, "It is what it is" is more or less how I live my life. Like when I answer the question, "Is the glass half full or half empty?" I Always think, "It's a glass with water in it!" What difference does it make?
People will always be found in the same percentages - 25% will be in the upper 25% of intelligence and 75% will be in the bottom 3/4 scale of intelligence. There is no way around it. It's simple math.
Mean time satan challenge the heavenly Father's position as a father , and he has allowed some time to prove can man rule himself, history records show the rise and fall of many Governments and sooner or later they are conquered failed.
Oh rats, I knew I was going to regret speaking to this person.
First and foremost I am a Taurus. I believe I am an optimist who will stand up and fight for justice when I feel there are circumstances and people that aren't fair in their treatment of others. Although I seek out the goodness in others, I know there are many who don't share that vision. They wish to divide and conquer, rather than just letting people live and let live. Although I may become pessimistic with their actions and views, I am also optimistic in knowing there are many more good people than bad. On a lighter note, I am always optimistic that I will produce another great vegetable garden if spring will finally arrive in the northeast.
My husband is a Taurus, and he is stubbornly loyal and an optimist. You go grow that veggie garden, Spring will get here in spite of the climate change!
Effects on to us when they had children, The heavenly Father could have replaced them with a, whole new pair, yet he kept his promise that man will make this earth their paradise home.we would not exist had he made a new pair.
Kiss and Tales you really lost me on this one. That's okay though because I love the path I'm on.
She is replying to a comment that I made on another thread on this question. She frequently gets confused or runs out of room and just uses any old space to type in more drivel.
You are only aloud 250 in space, so I try to get to the point. And the point is God is much more merciful then mere humans
The fact that we exist at all should be acknowledge, also the many wonderful things we do enjoy as humans Why create negatives
We really must admit no one will really judge them self as pessimistic or negative, because usually another will judge your word and action as these from their perspective. My perception regarding life is
That I was created for a purpose. I had nothing to do with my existing, but the one responsible has given me life . Many say They Want to be rich, and there are those that are, but their life lacks happiness, because that was not the purpose of their existence. Adam and Eve did not have money, they had the heavenly Father Who loved them And Gave Them All They needed
In food, and a beautiful garden home they were perfect, no health problems, and they did not even have children yet. The point was this world and Satan make people think this is the dream of happiness. It is not. When we are surrounded by sickness, injustice, crime, hatred, if this does not effect us it effects those we love and care about.
There is this saying how can you appreciate the good when you never have or experience
what is bad.
We now are experiencing the bad choice of Adam and Eves greed.
But soon the real life we begin.
we were created for paradise external.
When you create a home for your children, do you make them worship you? Do you make them live in an imperfect home until they die before you give them the home you created for them? Because they have to repent for Adam and Eve's sins? How cruel.
That is cruel and from that point of view true, but that example does not apply to our situation as humans. Adam And Eve carried us all in their loins. When they willfully betrayed their creator and listen to another voice , they passed their
No, he could have forgiven them and let them live in the home he promised to give them. Or would you not forgive your own children and just make them suffer forever?
Also remember they were perfect , mistakes are forgiven , not what you do on purpose.
We were forgiven that we will be given an opportunity to have paradise as their children, also our genes carry death. because a payment has been made we live.
Meanwhile, after all your typing, you have yet to answer the question. Would you do these things to YOUR children? Yes or No is all that is required to answer.
Your comment Austin star was answered at the beginning, when I said this was cruel, but you trying to blame the heavenly Father for a free moral choice they already knew the out come and what it would cause , they were perfect, we are not.
No, I asked YOU personally if you would treat your children this way. You still have not answered that question. And again, your choices are Yes or No.
Did I also say this would be true of cruelty ?
But if I ask you is it wrong to steal from your neighbor,does that mean you are a thief?
Yes or no does not make your statement correct, it does not apply to the heavenly Father, because he is not cruel
I would say, none of the above. I look for good, but in trying to live in the present moment, and being a neutral observer is more objective. Having expectations causes over reaction to any outcome.
I am a positive person. I know that life is not perfect but I try and live it the way I like it. I always look for the good in people instead of finding fault. I try and respect other people and yes I do care about other people and myself.
Again Austin I answered your question, Now with the same consideration is it a parents fault if a child is approach and told that you are a liar as a parent, and you can do what you want in your home even if that is to take life. Is this your fault?
