Is Good, All the Time" ........ but for many of us
we have had experiences that seem so unlike Good that this statement
appears more like a dream than a reality. The reason for this is
simple. It lies in our definition of "Good." Most
of us think that "Good" means that everything is going along
rosy and wonderful.... successful career, loving companionship,
excellent health and plenty of money. All these are fine and good
.... but they don't always lead us to our higher Good .... sometimes the
road that takes us the farthest in Life ... is rife with challenges,
struggles, lack and limitation. Does this mean that
"Good" is absent .... not at all.
"Good" Is Omnipresent .... for
God Is Omnipresent .... there is not God and something else ... there is
only God .... All God .... All the Time. That which
appears to be something less-than-God, is in reality, most often that
which is necessary for us to experience in order to realize a greater
Good than ever before.
Most of us are familiar with the ministry of Jesus ... so I will use Him
as an example. Those who showed-up to listen to Jesus .. to take
the time to sit in His audience ... were looking for the "loaves
and fishes." In other words, they were looking for more than
they had. "Loaves and fishes" can symbolize greater
health, wealth, happiness, love and peace of mind. We who seek God
usually do so because we are lacking something in our life. Now, I
don't mean those of us who attend church ... too many who attend church
do so for many reasons that have nothing to do with any real spiritual
seeking. I mean those of us who truly seek that "invisible
something" that we hope will give us a greater sense of life as
being more than just perfunctory habits and patterns.
there are those of us who are on the "edge" .... experiencing
serious illness .... living in financial chaos .... confused about
whether life truly holds any meaning at all ... and those of us who have
not found what we are looking for anywhere else....... we all turn to
God in a serious way. And often ..... too often ... we are met
with disenchantment .... those we turn to have no more answers than we
have ... and often ... too often ... those we seek help from treat us
with arrogance and superiority .... in other words ... their lives are
in even a sadder state of affairs than ours! Many of us, at this
point, feel almost past the point of rescue and give up completely or
feel totally disillusioned and "fall" into the trap of turning
our problems into life-long endurance tests ..... never healing anything
... but thinking we are understanding why it is all happening.
This is sad but true. So often, we end up trading healing for
companionship with "like-minded" individuals ..... we are
"rescued" by people we can trade our misery stories with and
end up with repetitive conversations that go like this; "I'm
hanging in there" or "I'm working on me."
Most of those who are "hanging in there" or "working on
me" continue to read book after book and take class after class
with absolutely no changes in their life....... why ... because in order
to "be healed" we must "bury" our old-self, our old
habits, our old tendencies of thought and our old beliefs and
assumptions .... as the Master Mind Jesus stated .. "you cannot
pour new wine into old wine skins." In other words, a
consciousness filled with the "old" has no room to
"let" new ideas, concepts and beliefs thrive in freedom....
therefore the "new" cannot be manifested.
to realize greater happiness, joy, love, peace, wealth and health .....
we must "cooperate with the Universe" and quit telling God
something or anything is not-Good .. and allow the experiences to lead
us and guide us to our Good ... our Healing.... we
are "healed" of our lack, limitations, illnesses, financial
woes, failures, loneliness and confusion by "knowing" that It
Is All Good .... even that which takes us past the point of rescue ....
for God ... the Eternal Good .... Is Always Present!
So It Is!
Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
