Always and Forever
Mike's Common Sense
True love is forever. This is not a metaphor, or the writing of a poet. True love is what we all receive from God 24-7, always and forever. No matter whom you are; no matter what you do, you will always have God’s love.
Many religions teach that if you do not follow their path you will lose God’s love and be damned to eternal misery in hell. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
We all need to be mindful of our actions, and take responsibility for them, but they are not, nor will they ever become the parameters to decide whether or not God loves us. Anytime you hear someone telling you that you will go to hell if you don't follow their religion, realize that they are subtly trying to control you.
There are repercussions from our actions, whether good or bad, and that is accomplished through karma. Karma is what all souls in the worlds of duality have to contend with. The purpose of karma is to teach all souls the lessons they must learn before they can graduate from these lower worlds. If you have lived a particularly evil life, the effects of karma can be very harsh in one of your next lifetimes, but you are never cut off from God’s love.
The belief that you have been cut off from God’s love is called despair. The Catholic Church has always taught that the one true mortal sin is despair. The reason for this is that if you believe you have been cut off from God’s love, you will needlessly cut yourself off from God because you believe you are not worthy.
We all make mistakes; it is part of the human make up. We learn through trial and error, with karma showing us how we erred. Learning in this method is slow, and it takes many lifetimes to earn your degree to leave these worlds of duality.
If you screw up, try not to get down on yourself too hard, and definitely don't try to hide from God.
God understands these things.
God’s love is always and forever.
