WWJD: Would Jesus Reject a Vaccinated/Unvaccinated Person?

Follow in His footsteps.

After really thinking about the state of the world we’re in right now, especially with the excessive division that tptsb are implementing in every aspect of our lives:

left vs. right
black vs. white
millenials vs. boomers
vaccinated vs. unvaccinated
masked vs. unmasked
spirituality vs. atheism vs. religion
liberals vs. conservatives
men vs. women vs. nonbinary etc.
racism, segregation, hatred, riots, cancel culture, woke culture, gender identity culture, etc., etc., etc.

we HAVE to take a step back and realize that all of these labels are created for the sole purpose of separating us and generating as much chaos as possible.

I can’t even begin to describe why this is such an important ideology for the societies/organizations that live for the motto “Order out of Chaos” / “Ordo ab Chao” – you would have to ask them…

Nevertheless, regardless of how many people keep denying the reality of this issue, it is there, and its history goes back centuries/millenia.

So deny all we want, but it is just letting it be easier for these organizations to keep implementing these divisions, this anger and hatred among humankind, this ever-growing philosophy of “Everyone is against you. Everyone is your enemy.

Thankfully, even if this IS true (which it’s NOT), Jesus Christ taught us the way to interact with our enemies.

Love Your Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so?
48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
Matthew 5:43-48

Let me get one thing “perfect”ly clear. I’m not perfect. But I’m trying to live my life to the best of my ability and learn to look to God and Jesus Christ in all ways of my life. There are many days I feel like I should do more, and I don’t want to wait until it’s too late and be considered a “lukewarm” Christian. So my efforts first and foremost is learning how to develop and grow the way that Jesus would want all of us to.

He taught us so many things – but it all boiled down to the most important commandment He left us with:

34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:34-35

This was the number one thing that Jesus Christ was trying to teach us in order to show us the holy way to live our life.

Do we see “Love” in abundance in today’s society? Maybe we could, if we look in the right place, but more often than not, I see turmoil and strife and hostility. Of course the mainstream media is a prime source of showing a lot of the negativity and animosity towards divided classes, perhaps built upon the phrase: “If it bleeds, it leads.”

And even just hearing people’s experiences with being alienated and ostracized from their own family for their political views, or religious ideologies, or the current situation with the pervasive agenda to get everyone vaccinated.

It’s heartbreaking, being shunned by those who have loved you and who you have loved, and it goes against everything that Jesus Christ stood for.

Or does it?

There are multiple things to consider here. The following verses seem to show some contradictions, but are they really? “Hate” and “Love” are seen sometimes as a real dichotomy, even if one believes that the opposite of love is apathy, or fear.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
19 We love Him because He first loved us.
1 John 4:18-19

I will come back to this verse in a minute, but for now I want to focus on the hate/love dichotomy.

Throughout the Bible, there are some interesting correlations between these two conflicting emotions. As we can see, some of the verses interconnect between love and hate, and seemingly even of the same topics in a contradictory manner, but the messages become quite clear within the context of it all:

9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.
10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him.
11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
1 John 2:9-11
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
1 John 2:15-17
18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
John 15:18-19
25 Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them,
26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.
27 And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
Luke 14:25-27

There are many references about “the world” and to not love the world, and if the world hates you, then know that it hated Jesus first. And this seems to be a contrast to one of the most popular verses in the Bible:

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Why does God love the world, but we’re expected not to? It seems to all boil down to the meaning and conditions of these verses. God loves the world (us), and because of this, is why Jesus Christ came in order to show us (the world) how to love and treat each other with respect and compassion.

However, since the worldly system was already put in place before Jesus Christ came, there are some who are still heavily indoctrinated into this system and rebuke this new, holy way of living. They would rather continue their life living in sin and wickedness than turn to Christ and grow in love and forgiveness.

How do we change the world? We love one another. True, genuine, unconditional love.

That brings us to the verse about hating your own family, and that whoever doesn’t hate them cannot be Christ’s disciple.

Wouldn’t this be contradictory? He tells us to love one another, as He has loved us. But He also says that we can’t be His disciples unless we forsake our own family…

Within the context of everything, considering that this world is under the rule of satan, it makes sense that there are those that will be called to Jesus/God, and actually respond, in comparison to those that don’t.

That’s not to say that we should hate them in the visceral sense. But that we should always be looking to God/Jesus Christ FIRST and follow HIS ways, rather than the ways of our family or friends. And if our family/friends are set apart from God and continue living a lifestyle “of the world”, then we must set ourselves apart from them and follow God.

Of course we should still pray for them and love them, but we MUST NOT let them take the lead and let them dictate the way we should live our lives.

It has, sadly, been a great upheaval in our current situation with the coronavirus agenda, with our friends and family strongly adhering to worldly, governmental control and unethical procedures in order to get as many people as possible to take this immoral vaccine, and to shame and ostracize anyone who doesn’t. I honestly have never seen such a corrupt propaganda to enforce any initiative in my life. And it astonishes me that there are those who still don’t see it.

Even considering if coronavirus was a REAL pandemic (which, if one takes a little bit of time to research this outside of the mainstream media and dubious “fact-checking” websites, can see that this virus has been greatly exaggerated and unfairly/untruthfully propagated), the measures that are being taken to “save the world” has crossed the ethical boundaries into tyrannical control. I would even say that the vaccines themselves have crossed the ethical boundaries a long time ago when they started their experiments into stem cell research, not to mention the other harmful substances that are in these injections.

Now, all of this is based on the foundation that “save the world” is actually the main end goal to begin with. Which I can safely theorize it is not, with the amount of evidence stacking up against the global leaders.

The REAL Purpose of the Covid “Vaccine”
REPOST: Proof that the Pandemic Was Planned With a Purpose

But a large part of the population has just been following orders, because it’s what the “experts” say, or the “scientists” say, or their parents, their teachers, their friends, their boss, etc., etc. There’s even a huge push to bribe (tempt) people to getting the vaccine. Beer. Food. Money. Concerts. Travel. etc., etc., etc. Very worldly things… I think I’m starting to see what Jesus meant when He said that one cannot be His disciple if we choose the “world” instead of choosing to follow Him. He meant it quite literally.

Now, getting back to the acronym: WWJD – What Would Jesus Do?

Let’s take a look at what He’d do in these current times. Well… rather, let’s instead look at what He did.

Instead of shunning sick people, or demanding that they get a vaccine, or quarantining them – isolating them until they pass away all alone out of fear that they will spread a disease, let’s see what Jesus actually did…

Instead of staying “6 feet away” or “social distancing”, or locking virus infected individuals away or shunning them service, etc. – Jesus reached out to them, touched them, healed them, showed them love and compassion. There was never any fear of them because He loves God and loves us and has exceptional faith.

Some may argue that since Jesus knew that he could heal the afflicted and would not get sick, and is the Son of God, then it’s not really putting Him in danger. But perhaps that is just speaking to His incredible faith and trust in the Lord – He knows things that we have yet to understand or believe.

He is the PERFECT example that we all should be emulating in our lives. Imagine if we all had this kind of faith and trust in God.

40 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.”

41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.”
42 As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.
Mark 1:40-42

Leprosy was a regarded as a spiritual affliction back in those days, that many believed manifested as sores, baldness, other skin disorders; and those individuals were shunned and outcasted from the rest of society, and who even had to announce their status as “unclean”.

45 “Now the leper on whom the sore is, his clothes shall be torn and his head bare; and he shall cover his mustache, and cry, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’
46 He shall be unclean. All the days he has the sore he shall be unclean. He is unclean, and he shall dwell alone; his dwelling shall be outside the camp.
Leviticus 13:45-46
Luke 17:11–19 records an account of ten men who had infectious skin diseases, commonly translated as “leprosy.” In the Israelite community, when a person discovered a rash or skin disorder, he or she had to go to the priest for examination. The priest then determined whether this was a contagious disease and whether the person was to be declared ceremonially unclean (Leviticus 13:1). Jewish law prohibited anyone with such a disease from associating with the general community. They had to be isolated and many times lived as outcasts until they died (Leviticus 13:45–46). This was necessary in order to keep infectious diseases from becoming an epidemic. But, for those afflicted, it could be a life sentence.” – What is the story of the ten lepers in the Bible?

Yet, according to the Bible, even just the faith in Jesus Christ has a huge impact on whether someone gets healed. Take the following account, for example:

11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off.
13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.

17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?
18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?”
19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”
Luke 17:11-19

Sadly, in this account, out of the ten lepers who were healed, ONLY ONE returned to give thanks and glory to God.

Now, this brings me to some touchy and debatable subjects about faith and mercy – I can already imagine someone who may get angry and frustrated/disappointed if their illness doesn’t get healed, or if their loved ones illness doesn’t get healed, although in their heart and soul they believed and had faith that the healing will happen. If it doesn’t, then it can bring back bitter thoughts of, “well, did I not believe hard enough?” “did I not pray enough?” “does God not love me enough to answer my prayers?”, etc., etc., etc.

I don’t have a certain answer for these. But from what I understand, we are under the grace of God, and if we truly believe in Him and have faith in Him, then no matter what the outcome, we have to trust Him that things are how they are for a purpose. I know the saying “God works in mysterious ways.” is extremely cliché, but I think part of our misunderstanding comes from us not knowing the complexity of the universe or our consciousness/conscience being.

Fear or LOVE?

And that brings me back to fear, which has been perpetrated non-stop in the media to get everyone panicking and fearful of this virus (which is debatable in its severity to begin with) and warning everyone to stay away from others and social distance themselves – even going so far as preventing us from reaching our loved ones who are in the hospitals or in hospice, etc. Those who are at risk are fearful of others, suspicious of everyone in regards to their own life. Those who are following along with the medical/government mandates out of well-intentioned, although misguided, efforts to shield others from the virus are also acting out of fear.

I have had my own experience with this when my son was sick last year. This was during the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, and my son was showing symptoms of it. (Flu-like symptoms. I know there have been scientific studies that state that this virus is different from the flu, but a lot of the symptoms are the same. And especially at the beginning, no one was sure of anything. Well, just look at the state now. There are still conflicting information on the origins of this virus.)

Although I was uncertain of the severity of this virus, and the recommendations were to quarantine, etc., with the expectations in some countries to quarantine even within one’s own home and to make NO CONTACT with the infected family members, there was NO WAY I was going to subject my son to absolute quarantine and no affection. That is heartbreaking. Even if it meant that I would get sick, I was willing to take that chance to make sure that he knows that he is loved and cared for; not shunned and suffering all alone. In fact, I probably showed him MORE love during this time, even waking up during the night to make sure he was okay. Leaving him alone to save my own health was the last thing on my mind. Perhaps some might see that as reckless. But I see it as an act of love and compassion.

And I was almost certain that I was going to get sick in return. I was actually expecting it. I still hugged him. I still gave him kisses. I still held him. I did everything I normally would even if he’s perfectly healthy, x3.

And I didn’t get sick. I was practically counting on getting sick and prepared myself for it. But it didn’t happen. My love for him overrode any kind of hesitancy or fear of this uncertain illness. Now, it could have been the normal flu rather than the coronavirus, which I would usually get sick from anyway.

So What Would Jesus Do?

Well, he showed us with his love and compassion for a complete stranger. Not just a complete stranger. A sick, “unclean”, complete stranger. Now imagine if we all did the same. Yes I can show this love with my son – he’s my own family member. But can we show the same love for an unknown stranger, even if they’re sick, dirty, and possibly contagious?

Jesus did.

One thing I have to mention, when does saving our own lives, cross the border to doing, or accepting, inhumane, unethical things?

Even now, there are efforts to deliberately grow a human fetus for the sole purpose of killing it just to do studies and research on it.

Scientists Want to Grow Unborn Babies for 40 Days and Kill Them for Research

This is HORRIFIC! Their justification (which there isn’t any for this type of project) is to explore stem cell research to extend human life or reverse aging, etc., etc. I can’t believe this is even a proposal.

THERE. IS. NO! JUSTIFICATION. FOR. THIS.

I can say, with every fiber of my being, that I would rather DIE than to promote this kind of heinous study. If it ultimately came down to me having the choice between dying, or having a life-altering/life-saving medicine that was created by using aborted fetuses, I would choose death every time. No amount of someone trying to persuade me by saying that fetuses aren’t living beings and are instead just a huge amount of cells will have ANY sway in my decision.

I know what I know, and I know what I feel. This is WRONG in every sense of the word. And it is setting a dangerous precedent that people will be willing to do anything in order to save their own life or their family member’s life – even at the detriment of someone else’s well being.

And I am prepared to give up my life to refuse these atrocious agendas.

14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.”
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
16 having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.
17 For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
1 Peter 3:14-17
24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
Matthew 16:24-25

Jesus is Love, and He has given us His teachings to follow Him and not the ways of the world. The ways of the world are falling into darkness, if not already enveloped in it. I refuse to be a part of this corrupt system. I don’t consent to it.

Jesus Christ is The Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is who we should follow.

Whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated (even if there are concerns about the vaccinated shedding a spike protein and getting others sick; or the unvaccinated spreading the coronavirus) Jesus would love us all the same. Although He may not approve of some of the decisions that have been taken, the key message here is to repent of our errors, no matter which side we’re on, and learn to love one another and grow in compassion and faith.

Forgiveness is a huge factor as well. If we can forgive each other, we can work on rebuilding our connections and let go of any of the hostility we may be feeling towards each other. I forgive anyone and everyone who truly repents of their actions if they feel as if they may have made the wrong decisions.

God bless you all.

12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
John 15:12-13
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:1-8

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

Welcome to 2021

Have any New Year’s resolutions?

With the New Year upon us, and what can probably be agreed upon as 2020 being a most crazy year, what with all the drama and uncertainty surrounding our current state of events and all the political discourse, on top of everything else that has happened, it would be nice if we all, collectively, concentrate and practice our own energy at creating a unanimously better, sweeter, kinder, peaceful new year (and beyond, at that).

Throughout this site, I’ve tried to categorize my posts with “Crystal Clear Learning” and “Get an Earful”, at least until I add a few more. (I also have a category devoted to studying the Bible, which I call “Earnest Examination”, but have not yet set it up at the time of this writing, although there are a few chapters available.)

Negativity Vs. Positivity

To get a better understanding of what can arguably be two conflicting idea sets, and to reiterate what I’ve found while researching, it’s interesting to realize that, according to the studies, people tend to focus more on the negative aspect of things. Now, while I wouldn’t necessarily label the “Get an Earful” series as “negative”, but instead more of an informative nature, the facts remain that most of the material in this category is of a negative connotation.

While it’s meant to inform the reader as to some of the strange, suspicious, and outright corrupt events happening in our world, there can be no doubt that it is filled with “negative” overtones. While the information is important, I think it would be beneficial for us to be knowledgeable about it, aware of it, take action against what we feel isn’t right, but do not dwell on it and focus all your energy onto it. This could lead into a downward spiral into where one loses hope and give in to depression and/or gives up completely.

The “Crystal Clear Learning” series, on the other hand, is meant to focus on what IS the most important factor in the universe. Even though it might seem that we are surrounded by “evil” and corruption, we must realize that MOST of us are not like that, and even if we were, then that is not who we are at the core, and that our “Higher Self”, our consciousness, knows better, and we are all on the same path, learning and growing at our own pace. When we can rise above all the negativity, all the hate, division, anger, pride, etc., is when we really start learning what the world is about.

In the Crystal Clear Learning series, I emphasize that Love and Forgiveness are the keys that will allow ourselves and the world to heal. I’ve made it a point to not just focus on the negative aspect of things and consciously post regularly about higher states of awareness and being. It is enlightening and encouraging, to say the least, when one realizes how much others are being awakened to the state of the world and the steps needed to raise our consciousness and vibrations. Although it seems we still have a long way to go, the fact of the matter is that with everyone slowly waking up (or even if they’re “completely asleep”) we can help the world realize this even further simply by spreading kindness and compassion, and being aware of our own thoughts and actions.

Focus on Positivity and Kindness

That brings me to, what can we do to help this New Year be the path forward to help humanity step up and realize that we’re all in this together and that our energies should be focused on love and compassion instead of negativity and fear?

There are many things we can participate in (or not, depending on the situation…), and I will list some of them below. It is my goal to do as many of these things as I can, to help raise not only my own vibrations/energy, but that of the world as well.

There is also additional advice on my E.A.R. Statement page that I believe would be beneficial in opening our eyes to situations around us.
I also encourage you to make your own list of things you’d like to do (or refrain from, in some cases) in order to try and better our own situation, well-being and that of others and the environment.

    • Donate unused/unwanted items. Or simply donate to help someone in need. Whether it be clothes, blankets, toys, food, etc.
    • Take a day here and there to help reduce litter in an area you know is over burdened with trash. Make a clean-up day with your family/friends/co-workers.
    • Practice patience and tolerance, and random acts of kindness. Simply letting someone in front of you in a checkout line can do wonders at spreading positivity.
    • If you have children, teach them love and compassion, instead of encouraging entitlement or privilege. We are ALL deserving of love and understanding, no matter what background we come from.
    • Speaking of children, spend time with them. Let them know that you’re there for them. Listen to them and care for them. Likewise, on the other side of the spectrum, spend time with your parents. You never know how much longer you’ll have with those in your life.
    • That brings me to, if there are unresolved issues, no matter the relationship (family/spouse/ex/friend/co-worker/etc.), although it can be extremely hard and incomprehensible sometimes depending on the situation, please find it in your heart to forgive them. This isn’t accepting their behavior towards you, but it is to heal your own heart and clearing the toxic cycle and the negative energy.
    • Be tolerant of others. There is so much condemnation and animosity simply for having opposing points of views, but if we take the time to realize that we’re all different and have lived (and suffered, in some cases) through different lifestyles and backgrounds, we might have more understanding and sympathy for other’s decisions. Don’t judge or criticize them because they agree or don’t agree with a particular outlook.
    • No matter your situation or profession, if there are extreme mandates that you know is not right, do not participate. Be brave and do the right thing. Stand up for yourself and others.
    • Be informed and proactive. Instead of reacting to harsh, terrible news and letting our emotions get in the way and leading us to rash, abrupt outbursts or decisions, always research the truth of the matter – and focus on ways that we can actively change the situation into one for the better.
    • Donate your time. It’s often easier to donate money or items than it is one’s time, since time is undoubtedly extremely valuable and harder to lend, in some instances. Spend time volunteering at a nursing home or foster care, etc. (If allowed during this “pandemic”…)
    • Try to reduce meat intake. Introduce more healthy options in its place. Kinder on the animals, and your body. (And it’s been theorized that it helps raise your vibrations as well.)
    • And it should go without saying, but like the suggestion above, we should be aware that animals do indeed have feelings. It’s not only important to treat each other with kindness, but those of animals (and even plants) as well.
    • Speaking of plants, try planting a garden, trees or flowers or the like. Spread the green and take note that if it weren’t for plants, we wouldn’t even be alive.
    • Take a few minutes of each day, or even hours if you can allow it, simply sitting in peace and/or doing something you enjoy (obviously as long as it’s not hurting others…).
    • Think positively. Be aware that your thoughts, whether you realize it or not, is creating energy and perhaps the very reality that you live in.
    • Smile. Simply smiling can lift one’s mood, and, bonus, it helps other people’s moods as well.
Be forgiving. Not only for others but also for yourself.

No one’s going to be perfect and we’re all going to make “mistakes”. But the key thing to learn is to not beat yourself over something that went wrong, in your mind, and instead, focus on forgiving yourself (and others) and just strive to do better next time. We’re all in this together – growing, learning, developing.

Even on this site, I have moments where I let my sarcasm and feisty-ness shine through, and some posts undoubtedly show frustration, but the core message stays the same. While I may indulge in a little bit of negativity to spread awareness, I also try my best to give others hope and spread the other, more important awareness. That we all can make a difference. And it starts with us as an individual. Accepting others as individuals. And loving them all the same.

Hope You All Have A Great New Year

Why is Love so Important?

Imagine a world with, and without Love. What do you see?

Hello Dear Readers,

If you’ve been to this site before, then you might realize a big focus that I address is that Love is the most important thing in the universe. I talk about it a lot. And it’s actually really hard for me to talk about on a day like today, for instance.

By the way, Happy Thanksgiving.
 

I’m not sure how everybody else is, but before, when I was still in my bitter, pessimistic days, it used to be really hard for me to say “I love you.” I might have gotten this reluctance to say it from my Mother. Don’t get me wrong, I adored her and loved her. But I think because she rarely ever said it, it must have rubbed off on me and I patterned myself after her in that regard.

It wasn’t until September 2007, that for some reason, while driving my Mom to work, I felt compelled to tell my Mom that I love her. I don’t even know where this sudden feeling came from. It just occurred to me that I couldn’t remember the last time I said, “I love you” to anyone. She looked shocked, because I think she realized it too, and she said “I love you” back. There was a feeling of imminent foreshadowing in that moment, and I instantly knew that something was different.

I remember it was September of 2007 very specifically, because, maybe ironically, the very next month she was diagnosed with cancer. And the next month after that, on Thanksgiving Day, she passed away.

I remember feeling lost, confused, hurt… losing someone on Thanksgiving Day; a day where family is traditionally supposed to come together and unite in a “happy” feast and reunion, and giving thanks to God for His blessings and of bountiful harvests.

It was a bitter reminder to me that practically during my whole life, I was ungrateful and unappreciative of the people in my life – or at least, I didn’t show my appreciation. Perhaps on the inside I knew how blessed I really was, but instead I chose to remain in the negativity and resentment of whatever teenage and early twenties angst I was focusing on at the time.

For what reason?

In my mind, I felt that the world was a lost cause. I saw injustices and hatred everywhere I turned. Selfishness, greediness, uncaring, hateful souls… My heart was turning black, cold, becoming “hardened”. It wasn’t until an event a few years earlier did a light suddenly go off in me and I started changing my ways. But even then, it still took more divine interventions to change my heart into following God and Love.

And although I did blame God for a time for taking my Mother from me just when I started to realize how little I was appreciating the people in my life, did it finally occur to me that it was my fault. I had the choice to appreciate my loved ones from the beginning or not. I had the choice to just assume they knew how much I loved them even though I didn’t tell them that or show them. It was my choice to be cold and distant instead of warm and loving.

Thankfully, with what I believe to be God’s help, He didn’t give up on me and He continued to work on me. I was the lost cause in this story. But He still saved me. He showed me that “Love is the Answer”.

And my heart goes out to anyone who has gone through life without Love. Sadly, some grow up in a household or living conditions without Love shown to them. And this is absolutely heartbreaking. The thing is, even though it may not seem like it, you are still loved. There are many people that have love and compassion for every being on this planet. And although there are atheists that don’t believe in God and there are pagan worshippers, idolaters, etc., it is my belief that God/Jesus still loves them. Regardless if one believes in them or not.

The only thing Jesus asks of us, is that we love God, love each other and ourselves, as Jesus Himself loves us.

That’s it.

And here’s the thing. If we did that, then we wouldn’t be living with hatred, division, greed, etc. If we all loved each other like we should, all of us would be happy and care about each other. And we would appreciate each other and not take each other for granted.

This is the world that I envision. I can see it and I can feel it in my heart. But we need to work on ourselves and work on the Love we have within. No, we cannot expect others to change. We can hope, love and pray for them, but we do have control over our own lives and our own emotions. We have the power to allow ourselves to realize that Unconditional Love is the most important thing in the universe and to act upon that and put it in motion. Love others, love your enemies, love everyone… and that will change the world.

Now, I’d like to say that I learned my lesson. I catch myself saying “I love you” to my son often. Not out of mindless habit, but simply because the love I feel for him is so overwhelming and I truly want him to know that I love him dearly. I say “I love you” to my friends and other members of my family. I say “I love you” to animals. I pray to God/Jesus and the Heavenly host and thank them all and tell them that I love them. I love the world and the beauty that it holds.

And on that note, I love you all, and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. If I may ask of you anything, it is to simply love others, and be thankful and show appreciation for the ones you have in your life. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Love and blessings to you all.
