‘Jesus Saves’ won’t save anything but your imagination, no offense meant to Mr. Jesus and the 1/2 million religion salesmen in the US who preach Jesus as the last word. Now if anyone wants to wave a flag that ‘Jesus Saves’ cause the bible tells you so, DO IT! When you’re making love, thank Jesus! Say it loud! Not going to do you any more good than thinking you’re Jesus.
YOU have to ‘save yourself’ from whatever hampers your mind and heart. No one else can do it for you, or any belief. It’s you by your actions and knowing who you are as your heart remains open to love and being loving!
By nature, I’m an optimist always being optimistic but at the same time discerning. I treat the future as choice, and not fate, however that attitude of fate is more universal. I’m reminded of a story where a well educated executive was babysitting for his daughter. As he was trying to read the newspaper he became frustrated by constant interruptions from his young grandchild. When he came across a full page of the NASA photo of the Earth from space. He got a brilliant idea! He ripped it up into small pieces, and told the child to try to put it back together.
He then settled back to read his paper, thinking he’d have a good half hour of peace and quiet. To his astonishment in only a few minutes the child appeared at his side with a big grin on her face. ‘You’ve finished already, he asked. ‘Yep’, she replied. ‘So how did you do it?’ ‘Well, I saw there was a picture of a person on the other side, so when I put the person together, the Earth got put together too…’
There is so much to admire about that incident. The conviction was that the future is our choice, and not just fate. The story indicates how we have individual choices apart from what others may think isn’t possible. The answers lives within each of us if we open up our mind in awareness. Most are controlled by fate far more than necessary if only the mind is open, and followed by action on that which is positive. Save a Jesus, Buddha, and yourself all within you. Best Save a space in your heart for the infinite gifts of live and love! Drop all the words, stay in the moment here and now, and make this your ‘kingdom come’. Count the blessings you are born again and again with!
