Climbing Levels Of Spiritual Enlightenment

learning from the past turning the dark into light grasping a lesson from our Father climbing levels of enlightenment The Almighty presents us with lessons each and everyday it is our job to acknowledge the lessons and grow from them Although presented in different ways we all go through the same lessons in life I call it "climbing levels of spiritual enlightenment" if you grasp the lesson presented and live by that lesson you will begin your climb if you fail to live by that lesson you will tumble back down over and over hence the lessons will be presented to you once again until you achieve them The lessons are not always pleasant as the flesh cries out in pain as I climb and fall throughout my life the agony is soon replace with delight a little pain to receive a blessing from our King What appears to be a failure or a loss with no way out is simply a hidden blessing , a gift from our King...... It's time to start climbing!!! lets grow strong..........

    (2) God(the system "Life") is a part of everyone and everything. The paranormal life system Agape "God" has given it's spiritual life substance in all things that exists. He belongs to us and we belong to him. We, He, All things, are the existing Fact. The paranormal system is the only fact that is the fact, that can change the fact, That is God!!!!! Thank God(thank the Agape system) the human mind does not posses the power of life itself. Agape, Moses

    (1) Lessons are the reason for the continuation of naural life, as you have indicated, Rick. One day when all things are said and done in earth, death hell and destruction are all put under our feet. Then men will understand who, what God actually is, that he is the paranormal system of life itself, that created it's own body. That the body is all dimensions of form that our illusionary minds thinks is solid.

    Oh hay Rick, I am offended by the word learning, and the word climbing, and the word loss, and the word no. What is wrong with you, don't you know how to write? GIMME A BREAK- how can someone actually complain about this?

    You have proved your faith with a loud voice and a willingness to climb! Climb and don't pity others who refuse to follow. God is your King and Lord! If He is with you...who can be against you? This is a great, spiritual poem written by someone who has learned from life's lessons...to have suffered and been rewarded with delight, as Christ Himself suffered to give us the gift of salvation. May your hope and faith ever sustain you, my friend. Have a blessed day, Andrew.

    I just read your blog. So where is the dirt? Can't see any. You know what? One could replace 'Father' and 'King' with anything, and this poem will portray a spiritual message for anyone at all! Please don't take that the wrong way ok! I mean, a Buddhist could read this and it would reflect one of their mantras or lessons. Great message here. Chris.

    Dear friend...I want to hear about the LEMON experiences and how you turned them in to sweet LEMONADE...please mention the words lemon/lemonade and since we are in narrative form it would be best to Capitalize the beginnings of sentences...you are giving me a very hard task :( soup mail
