God's Will: Can You Spot It?

Edited by Richard Kent Matthews - Author | Coach | Speaker

What is God's Will, Really?
If God were to make out a Will, this is how it might read:

"Being of sound mind, I hereby turn all creation over to the created. I will withhold all wrath, punishment, reward, and interference. I have set the universe in motion, with all the laws it needs to operate without sticking my finger into the mix. I release it and let it unfold as it will. The creation does not have to believe in me or recognize me." Signed, God.

Could you live with that kind of will? Or do you need a god who imposes itself upon the Creation? A god who whines when things don't seem to go his way, or when his creatures don't always act in accordance with his wishes?

The will you choose determines your movements through life. 

Are you able to accept freedom, or is divine enslavement more comfy?

It's your choice.

You Say You Seek Truth?

Edited by Richard Kent Matthews - Author | Speaker | Coach

What, then, is Truth?
“Hear those who say they seek truth; run from those who say they’ve found it.” An Old Philosopher’s Quote. . .

When you say you seek Truth, are you ready to accept it from wherever it comes and follow it wherever it leads you? If you only want to justify your own agendas, or dogmas, you are not seeking Truth, but false comfort. 

There are plenty of old books and bibles that others will tell you teach Truth. But do they, really? Maybe, maybe not. So, while you seek, also practice. And the best practice? Well, this should do for starters:

Do the least harm and the most good.

That may not be Ultimate Truth. But it will certainly do until the Ultimate comes along. And it is enough challenge for a lifetime. 

Selfishness is a natural drive, not easily dissuaded from controlling your life. If you don't put on the brakes, who will? 

Truth is elusive. But being kind isn't. It's all up to you.
