God and Sex


dismantle the house, but look at each brick, and replace those which appear broken, which no longer support the structure.Your ideas about right and wrong are just that-ideas. They are the thoughts which form the shape and create the substance of Who You Are. There would be only one reason to change any of these; only one purpose in making an alteration: if you are not happy with Who You Are.Only you can know if you are happy. Only you can say of your life-"This is my creation (son),.in which I am well pleased." If your values serve you, hold to them. Argue for them. Fight to defend them.Yet seek to fight in a way which harms no one. Harm is not a necessary ingredient in healing.

You say "hold to your values" at the same time you say our values are all wrong. Help me with this.

I have not said your values are wrong. But neither are they right They are simply judgmentS. Assessments.Decisions. For the most part, they are decisions made not by you, but by someone else. Your parents, perhaps.Your religion. Your teachers, historians, politicians.Very few of the value judgments you have incorporated into your truth are judgments you, yourself, have made based on your own experience.

Yet experience is what you came here for-and out of your experience were you to create yourself. You have created yourself out of the experience of others.If there were such a thing as sin, this would be it: to allow yourself to become what you are because of the experience of otheis. This is the "sin you have committed. All of you. You do not await your own experience, you accept the experience of others as gospel (literally), and then, when you encounter the actual experience for the first time, you overlay what you think you already

know onto the encounter.If you did not do this, you might have a wholly different experience-one that might render your original teacher or source wrong. In most cases; you don't want to make your parents, your schools, your religions, your traditions, your holy scriptures wrong-so you deny your own experience in favor of what you have been told to think.

Nowhere can this be more profoundly illustrated than in your treatment of human sexuality.Everyone knows that the sexual experience can be the single most loving, most exciting, most powerful, most exhilarating, most renewing, most energizing,.most affirming, most intimate, mCh"t uniting, most recreative physical experience of which humans are capable.

Having discovered this experientially, you have chosen to accept instead the prior judgments, opin ions, and ideas about sex promulgated by others-all of whom have a vested interest in how you think.These opinions, judgments, and ideas have run directly contradictory to your own experience, yet because you are loathe to make your teachers wrong, you .convince yourself it must be your experience that is wrong~

The result is that you have betrayed your true truth about this subject-with devastating results.

You have done the same thing with money. Every time in your life that you have had lots and lots of money, you have felt great. You felt great receiving it, and you felt great spending it. There was nothing bad about it, nothing evil, nothing inherently "wrong." Yet you have so deeply ingrained within you the teachings of others on this subject that you have rejected your experience in favor of Ntruth. n Having adopted this "truth" as your own, you have formed thoughts around it-thoughts which are creative. You have thus created a personal reality around money which pushes it away from you-for why would ou seek to attract that which is not good?

Amazingly, you have created this same contradiction
around God. Everything your heart experiences about God tells you that God is good.

Everything your teachers teach you about God tells you God is bad. Your heart tells you God is to be loved without fear. Your teachers tell you Cod is to be feared, for He is a vengeful God.You are to live in fear of God's wrath, they say. You are to tremble in His presence. Your whole life through you are to fear the judgment of the lord. For the lord is "just," you are told. And God knows, you will be in trouble when you confront the terrible justice of the Lord. You are, therefore, to be "obedient" to God's commands. Or else.Above all, you are not to ask such logi~1 questions as, "

if God wanted strict obedience to His Laws, why did He create the possibility of those Laws being violated?"

Ah, your teachers tell you-because God wanted you to have "free choice. "yet what kind of choice is free when to choose one thing over the other brings condemnation? How is "free will" free when it is not your will, but someone else's, which must be done? Those who teach you this would make a hypocrite of God.You are told that God is forgiveness, and compassioo-yet if you do not ask for this forgiveness in the "right way," if you do not "come to God" properly, your plea will not be heard, your cry will go unheeded. Even this would not be so bad if there were only One proper way, but there are as many "proper ways" being taught as there are teachers to teach them.

Most of you, therefore, spend the bulk of your adult life searching for the "right" way to worship, to obey, and to serve God. The irony of all this is that 1 do not want your worship, I do not need your obedience, and it is not necessary for you to serve Me.These behaviors are the behaviors historically demanded of their subjects by monarchs-usually eg0maniacal, insecure, tyrannical monarchs at that.They're not Godly demands in any sense-and it seems remarlcable that the world hasn't by now concluded that the demands are counterfeit, having nothing to do with the needs or desires of Deity.

Deity has no needs.
All That Is is exactly that: all that is. It therefore wants, or lacks, nothing-by definition.If you choose to believe in a God who somehow needs something-and has such hurt feelings if He doesn't get it that He punishes those from whom He expected to receive it-then you choose to believe in a God much smaller than!. You truly are Children of a lesser God.No, my children, please let Me assure you again, through this writing, that I am without needs. I require nothing.This does not mean I am without desires.

Desires and needs are not the same thing (although many of you have made them soin your present lifetime).Desire is the beginning of all creation. It is first thought. It is a grand feeling within the soul. It is God, choosing what next to create.And what is God's desire?I desire first to know and experience Myself, in all My g1ory-40 know Who I Am. Before I invented you-and all the worlds of the universe-it was impossible for Me to do so.Second, I desire that you shall know and experience Who You Really Are, through the power I have given you to create and experience yourself in whatever way you choose.Third, I desire for the whole life process to be an experience of constant joy, continuous creation, neverending expansion, and total fulfiilrnent in each moment of now.I have established a ~rfect system whereby these desires may be realized. They are being realized now-in this very moment.

The only difference between you and Me is that I know this.

In the moment of your total knowing (which moment could come upon you at anytime), you, too, will feel as I do always:

totally joyful, loving, accepting, blessing, and grateful.

WHAT is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?—
No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows:

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance:

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

People are often unreasonable,
and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone
could destroy overnight.
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them
~Martina McBride~

There are far too many variables within gods laws.
Which of two god fearing opposing factions will he favour today.
