That which is of the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" in me,
So it is i yearn, and to Our FATHER cry,
For deliverance from all that is of the "I".
The "I", born of "imag"ination and selfish desire,
As lust, greed, and pride, stoked a consuming fire!
A fire burning out of control, as "I" leads the way,
It's smoke concealing the fleshly mind that leads one astray.
Yet even in the smoke, searing heat, and blindness of 'sight',
TRUTH can pierce that blackness of darkness, revealing "The Light"!
And nothing can hide from "The Light", so "Light" reveals the "I(ego,id,self,pride)",
Allowing one to "see" clearly, and clearly the "I" must die.
Yet to live, yet die, seems an impossible task,
And so we need of "Our FATHER", the impossible to ask.
Help me to "deny (die to "I",ego,id,self,pride) myself" FATHER!
And as HE Helps, HE reveals evermore of "The Selfless One".......
The One who testified, "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)
The One Who leads His brethren (naturally male or 'fe'male) on "The Narrow Way" that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life! (Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)
The One Who IS The Messiah, "The Only Begotten Son of The ONE and ONLY TRUE LIVING GOD(SPIRIT) and FATHER(CREATOR) of ALL"! (Matthew 16:16, John 3:16; 20:17)
The Messiah, "The Beginning of The Creation of Our FATHER and GOD"! "The True Light that enlightens every man born into the world"! (Genesis 1:3, Revelations 3:14, John 1:9)
And as Mahatma Gandhi testified, so i also testify, "i like your christ(*aka: messiah*), but not your christians! Your christians are so unlike your christ"....... And i believe in his latter years Mahatma Gandhi saw "The Light" that IS The Messiah and sought and desired to follow Him on that "Narrow Way" that IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"....... (John 3:18, Matthew 7:14, John 14:6)
And as The Messiah desired above all else, so also will His brethren(i believe Mahatma Gandhi is a brother) desire above all else:
"FATHER(CREATOR), not my ("I", ego, id, self, pride) will, But THY Will Be Done"....... (Luke 22:42)
Then on 1/26/05 the poetic testimony was completed, and 'completion' is near for each and every soul! (James 4:14)
And Thankfully so for "the poor and needy" "Born Again" son's of "Our FATHER and GOD"! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, I Peter 1:23, John 3:3,7; 20:17, I John 3:1-2) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html
For we have REALized "I(ego,id,self,pride)" can't! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)
And Thankfully the brethren of The Messiah, those "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth", look forward to that day when we receive that final breath(Spirit, air)! "Set free, free indeed" from our natural, temporal, fleshly bodies! (Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11, John 8:32-36)
Translated, "corruptible to incorruptible" indeed and TRUTH! (I Corinthians 15:53-54)
Thankfully Home, Home at last....... (John 14:2-3)
Forever free from the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" that sought to lead us along that "broad way to destruction and damnation"....... (John 8:32-36, Proverbs 3:5-6, Matthew 7:13, Hebrews 3:12)
All Thanks and Praise Be Unto "Our FATHER and GOD"! (John 20:17)
And while there is breath(Spirit, air), there is hope many will "see",
"see" the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" for what it is, and then desire to be set free!
And The SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and GOD, The SPIRIT that was in The Messiah and IS in His brethren, can "set you Free, Free indeed"! (John 4:24; 8:32-36)
For TRUTH IS! and Miracles do happen.......
So Hope IS there would be those who experience The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self("I", ego, id, pride)life, for they will 'see' "The Light" that is The Messiah! "The Light" which clearly reveals that The Life is of The SPIRIT (not seen with the natural eye), and most certainly not of the flesh or fleshly mind ("I", ego, id, self, pride)! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, Genesis 1:3, John 1:9; 6:63) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
And TRUTH IS! Each and every breath(Spirit, air) a soul receives should reveal the source of Life.......
And as Mahatma Gandhi testified, so it is "There is no GOD higher than TRUTH"!
And once again: Unless a soul receives "a love of The TRUTH" they can not be saved from their own self("I", ego, id, pride)life! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)
Thankfully those souls who have experienced The Miracle that IS receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved", and then were "Born Again"? Thankfully they have REALized that liken unto The Messiah, so also "i can do nothing of my own ("I",ego,id,pride) self! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3, 7; 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14, I Peter 1:23)
So it is we "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"....... (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
HE DID! and HE does.......
No longer "I(ego,id,self,pride)", but THEE(The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT) in me!
So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17;5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)
**At this moment in time i Thankfully remain but "an alien and pilgrim while on the earth" (Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11). Yet a return to the simplicity that is rural Mexico would be welcomed! And if i ever receive that which is needful so that i might communicate fluently in spanish, i most certainly would like to return....... However, i REALize that in all things, at all times, it needs be "FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42, Proverbs 3:5-6)**
