When you deny the facts and don't see the undercurrent of reality your beliefs convince you that you are right to keep you in your comfort zone. Why? Because if you are not open to the truth it is your ego blocking it from being understood!
The ego needs to be in command in order to validate its existence. If you were truly living from the Spirit of God you would trust the Divine completely, hear the truth and live in the truth. Look deeper, feel deeper and know the truth that if anything you observe is not contributing to thegrowth and expansion of all of life and unfolds your personal fulfillment, it is NOT from the Spirit of God but from your ego, its beliefs and its fears.
Love contributes to the growth and expansion of life and seeks not to diminish it. Fear creates separation from the truth in order to keep your ego in command. Don’t be fooled by the subtleties of the ego generating fear and convincing you that you need to carry a weapon to protect yourself. When you elevate yourself to the position of being able to end someone’s life it is your ego that is doing this; NOT the Spirit of God.
God is love and love is nurturing, supportive and kind. Egois selfish, fearful and mean when you allow it to over validate itself. Keep the ego in check by trusting in the Divine to guide your every step and never allow the total B.S. of those who try to convince you that God wants you to arm yourself.
If God is love and we are all children of God, why would God want you to kill others? Think about it a moment. God loves all of Creation and wants you to kill anyone that threatens you, your family, your home and your property. God wants us to love one another and also wants us to kill one another? Can’t you see how contrary this is? If you can’t, then I suggest you re-evaluate your life and the importance of the lives of others.
Know the source of the proponents who elevate their B.S. over Divine love and put them in their place. Be the child of the Most High that you are and give Divine love from your heart. It is the way to peace and complete fulfillment. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
