And ye, therefore, now, indeed, have sorrow; and again I will see you, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one doth take from you,

 Sand in that day ye will question me nothing; verily, verily, I say to you, as many things as ye may ask of the Father in my name, He will give you;

 till now ye did ask nothing in my name; ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

 

–John 16:22-24

Many people want to have a so-called God experience. The name for that is spiritual materialism. Just as some people like to amass cars, clothes, and big houses, other people like to amass spiritual experiences. But that’s not what a relationship with Hashem is all about.

 

        A true encounter with Hashem means seeing, hearing and responding to Hashem in your life. In Hebrew this is called teshuva, a word often mistranslated as ‘repentance,’ but really meaning ‘answer.’ To do teshuva is to answer Hashem’s call.”

No matter how many times I have sex, as a man I cannot conceive…  (bad paraphrase of a Brit comedy joke from “Blackadder”)

There are no “victors”….


Men cannot give birth, sometimes, you really have to let it go, and live with what is.
Although there is that funky website about the first male pregnancy http://www.malepregnancy.com/

One “spiritual edict” is that one should refrain from needless arguing, especially about beliefs. Ultimatly the seeker knows, one’s belief is what is right for them

This may not be true of another.  As Gnostics, we do not seek to change, or convimce, or convert.  We seperate the wheat from the chaff, and find what is good, what is useful.

A wise man lives free of conflict.

When the feelin’ is ended
There ain’t no use pretendin’
Don’t ya worry – It’s only love

When your world has been shattered
Ain’t nothin’ else matters
It ain’t over – It’s only love
And that’s all – yeah

When your heart has been broken
Hard words have been spoken
It ain’t easy – but it’s only love

And your life ain’t worth livin’
And you’re ready to give in
Just remember – that it’s only love

You can live without the aggravation
Ya gotta wanna win – ya gotta wanna win
You keep lookin’ back in desperation
Over and over and over again

When your world has been shattered
Ain’t nothin’ else matters
It ain’t over – It’s only love

And if your life ain’t worth livin’
And you’re ready to give in
Just remember – that it’s only love
Ya – that’s all

Ya it ain’t easy baby
But it’s only love – and that’s all

 

–Bryan Adams (its only love)

The Savior said to his disciples, “Now the time has come, brothers and sisters, for us to leave our labor behind and stand at rest,  for whoever stands at rest will rest forever. 1 say to you, always rise above… time [I say] to you,… [do not] be afraid of [those] …you. I [say to you], anger is frightening, [and whoever] stirs up anger is a [frightening person]. But since you have [been able to endure], it may come from [you] ….

 

“People received these words about anger with fear and trembling. Anger established rulers over them, for no one escapes anger. But when I came, I opened a path and taught people about the way of passage for those who are chosen and alone, who have known the Father and have believed the truth. And you offered praise.
