At the limit

If you really are at the limit of your strength, God knows that too.

So relax and move on, doing what your conscience and good sense tell you is indispensable.

Trust in the Infinite Goodness of the Creator, remaining active in the duties and responsibilities that behoove you, and the Divine Providence will resolve everything, in time, in a much better way than you now imagine.

Investing in happiness

When you feel confused and sad, invest in happiness.

Fulfill that unpleasant discipline, even if only to a small extent.

Extend a little comfort to a heart suffering more than yours, by making an affectionate phone call or even sending a kind e-mail.

Be friendly with someone next door.

Forgive the error of the unwary friend.

Study some more, read, pray, smile…

It’s always time to invest in happiness. If you’re down, there’s no better time, because you’re planting the seeds of your own happiness, to be harvested in fruits of joy later on.

If you remain faithful to the spirit of balance, optimism and idealism, when everything seems to be going wrong, imagine what torrents of bliss will visit your soul soon!..

Dangerous dreams 

What you want and which sounds so pleasant may not be at all what it seems when seen up close. And what, even up close, still seems palatable can, in the long run, turn out to be bitter.

The world of appearances is a field of illusions, often dangerous…

While many dream of a certain goal, others, who have already reached it, seek exactly the opposite, and so the overwhelming majority of both groups live dissatisfied lives.

Do not let yourself be seduced by the eyes or the ears. What seems to be may not be. And what is, today and always, may not appear to you as such for a long time yet.

Surrender to God and listen to His-Her benevolent Voice in the depths of your heart. Wherever there is peace and joy in life, there will be the Creator’s Will, unalterably perfect, providing you with happiness and self-realization, already in the physical existence that you now enjoy.

Blasphemy and tragedy

The Will of God is omnipresent and omnipotent and, thus, subsists not only at the beginning but also at the end of human relationships, allowing those involved to experience a particular set of lessons during a certain period of time.

If someone taken by haughtiness does not accept such an elementary lesson, they apply, by a Law of Divine Justice and even Mercy – based on the very evolutionary need of that more impermeable soul – for suffering, in their existence, other more dramatic ends of cycle, such as the physical death of a loved one.

Relational commitments of any nature, from friendship and family to marital and professional, come and go. Experiences of broken bonds are an inexorable phenomena of life and happen with the end of friendships, job terminations, divorces or even by the death of the dense matter bodies.

And here is why, for some hardened hearts, albeit this is not the only reason-purpose for such a painful occurrence, a child or a grandchild, a parental figure or even an extremely dear spouse can be abruptly and unexpectedly removed from their lives, by the traumatic corridors of death, because nothing nor any situation is ever a guaranteed right to anyone.

May the human creatures guard themselves against blasphemies. Pride and ego want to be correct at all costs. However, ironically and tragically, the cost can be much higher for the arrogant individual who stands against the Celestial Designs, since Divinity does not consult anyone to enforce Its Perfect Providence, just as the law of gravity does not await anyone’s belief or opinion to precipitate a body, into a free fall, towards the abyss…

Little slips, big disasters

When you ask someone to do for you what is your personal responsibility, most likely the job will not be done to satisfaction. Attribute then to yourself the blame for what happened, instead of projecting it onto the individual entrusted with the task or getting angry with them, because then there will be two initial problems: the precariousness of what was poorly done and the unnecessary conflict with a brother or sister in humanity.

In addition, something more serious will be happening: the intensified recurrence of your disconnection with your own center of consciousness, which knew, from the beginning, the content of the evolutionary lesson that you needed to assimilate with the experience.

By procrastinating self-improvement, you inevitably attach yourself to lines of disastrous future events related to this fault of yours, not to mention any other disorders that unfold within yourself, like spiritual carcinomas of unconsciousness in the structures of your psyche, opening the floodgates of your destiny to misfortunes of unpredictable proportions, number, and gravity.

This is how small acts of moral abatement and lack of sense of self-criticism can lead the creature to perfectly avoidable tenebrous existential paths. It never hurts to recall the undying lesson of the Christ-Verb: “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation”1.
