What is Success, and who is Successful?

Simply, "Success" IS of and IN The SPIRIT and IS Life! .......FOREVER....... (John 11:26)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-messiah-testified-whoever-lives-and.html

And it needs be that i testify, "of all the men who have received the breath(Spirit, air) of life since i received my first breath in '43, i respect Mahatma Gandhi above all others(A Prime Example of A Soul Who Was and IS Successful)! The source of such respect being The Spirit of, and in, the quotes attributed to him.......

Some of those quotes (in italics), and (my comments) are; 

“I like your christ, I do not like your christians. Your christians are so unlike your christ"!
(Messiah)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/christianity-is-anti-messiah.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/08/who-is-this-pagan-catholic-and.html

And he testified, "GOD has no religion"....... (Yet GOD has Family! And Mahatma Gandhi in his later years experienced such in a common union with Spiritual brothers and sisters who called nothing their own as they evermore desired The Fruit bore in a simple and Spiritual Life)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

And "Those who believe that religion has nothing to do with politics, do not know what religion is"! (The religious and/or worldly ones would rather have a man than Our FATHER and GOD speak to and rule over them!" Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51, Exodus 20:19, I Samuel 8:4-21)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

"A man with a grain of Faith in GOD never loses Hope, because he ever believes in the ultimate Triumph of TRUTH"....... (For FAITH Wins The Victory over death for those souls who "received a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved!" I John 5:4, II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

"There is no GOD higher than TRUTH"! ("The LORD GOD of TRUTH" {Psalms 31:5})

(And TRUTH IS!) "Spiritual relationship is far more precious than physical. Physical relationship divorced from spiritual is body without soul".......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/body-soul-and-spirit-i-thessalonians-523.html

"Of all the animal creation of GOD, man is the only animal who has been created in order that he may know his MAKER. Man's aim in life is not therefore to add from day to day to his material prospects and to his material possessions, but his predominant calling is, from day to day to come nearer to his own MAKER"!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-treasures-of-simple-and-spiritual.html

“GOD forbid that India should ever take to industrialism after the manner of the west... keeping the world in chains. If India took to similar economic exploitation, it would strip the world bare like locusts”....... (Sadly, a prophecy evermore being fulfilled!)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

“The Roots of Violence: wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, worship without sacrifice, politics without principles"!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/carnal-warfare-is-religions-way-which.html

And, "What is TRUE, is that honesty is incompatible with the amassing of a large fortune"!
("Behold, these are the ungodly! They prosper in the world as they evermore seek to increase in riches"! Psalms 73:12) 
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/behold-these-are-ungodly.html

"Even if you are a minority of one, TRUTH IS The TRUTH"....... (The latter day quotes of Mahatma Gandhi reveal that he had received "a love of The TRUTH", and then was "Born Again"! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3, I Peter 1:23*)  
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/what-is-truth.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/thankfully-truth-is-and-is-victorious-i.html

And as the title of this blog questions, "What is Success"?

Receiving "a love of The TRUTH so that you might be saved" from your own self("I", ego, id, pride)life, and then hopefully "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT" that IS Our FATHER and GOD, indeed and TRUTH....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7; I Peter 1:23)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

Yes! "a love of The TRUTH" more than this natural temporal life itself("I",ego,id,pride)! For IT IS as The Messiah testified, "Whoever would(seek to) save his life shall lose it, yet whoever will lose his life for My sake shall find IT(The Life, Forever)"! (Matthew 16:25, John 14:6)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/they-received-not-love-of-truth-that.html

Simply, The Life IS of The SPIRIT(Breath, air) and TRUTH(Apart from TRUTH what IS?)!

"And who is Successful"?

Those who have REALized how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/father-help-and-he-does.html

For TRUTH IS as The Messiah testified, and as Mahatma Gandhi and all the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah have REALized! Simply, "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)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

Yes! The Life IS when a soul REALizes "i can do nothing of my own self", and then seeks and desires that which The Messiah sought and desired above ALL else! 
(John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)

"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

A Declaration of Dependence.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/a-declaration-of-dependence.html

Yes! The Will of Our FATHER needs be sought and desired more than this natural, temporal life itself.......

And Mahatma Gandhi testified, "I am but a poor struggling soul yearning to be wholly good, wholly truthful and wholly non-violent in thought, word and deed, but ever failing to reach the ideal which I know to be true. It is a painful climb, but the pain of it is a positive pleasure to me. Each step upwards makes me feel stronger and fit for the next"! (A "Pilgrim's Progress" while "Growing in Grace"!)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/the-closer-i-get-farther-away-i-realize.html

And he testified, "I have been a willing slave to this most exacting MASTER for more then half a century. HIS Voice has been increasingly audible as years have rolled by. HE has never forsaken me even in my darkest hour. HE has saved me often against myself and left me not a vestige of independence. The greater my surrender to HIM, the greater has been my Joy".......


Yes! "JOY" REALized in Self-Denial and Surrender!

Mahatma Gandhi's Declaration of Dependence.......

As for me, i "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"! (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/a-declaration-of-dependence.html

FATHER Help!

HE DID!       and HE does.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/my-prayer-father-help-and-he-does.html

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) in this day and age!
(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)
