Man & Woman

22 April 2018 Sunday 4:22pm

If peace can only be found within – which is another way of saying, “I’ve found out how to be happy with myself,” then how come some people pay crazy money to get advice and be trained to be able to be happy with themselves?

That is because many still believe that the only way to be happy is to have the perfect relationship. And that includes the relationship with themselves. Some unhappy people are always looking for solutions to their unhappiness. They believe that with the proper advice and with the proper guidance they will surely find the prefect relationship that will bring them true happiness for the rest of their lives. There is no such thing as true happiness. There is only true peace. And that peace can never be found outside of you. It is from within. When the soul has accepted this truth, that is when the soul will no longer need anything. Not even a relationship.

Then what are you talking about when you speak of the relationship of man and woman being the saving factor of this world from its own destruction? Isn’t that pertaining towards us working towards a perfect relationship? Which you have just mentioned that a soul at peace with itself does not need?

Do you have peace?

Yes, I have peace.

Do you need a relationship right now?

No, not really.

But it would be nice to be in one, yes?

Yes. It would be fun to have someone to hang around with.

But it is not compulsory for you?

Nope.

Even for the rest of your life?

Yup. Where is this going, God?

Just checking. Checking how you are.

So how am I?

You’re perfectly fine.

I am, aren’t I? With or without a relationship, I am perfectly fine.

But it would be fun?

Yes, most definitely. If you call a lot of hard work fun, then yes.

It’s all a matter of having the right mindset, my dear.

I know that. If I didn’t have the right mindset, do you think I’d have reached this far?

No, you wouldn’t have. But with you, my dear, anything is possible.

Thank you for that vote of confidence. But you still haven’t answered my question – Why is the relationship of a man and a woman the saving factor of this world from its own destruction?

This world is an illusion, you already know that. I created the illusion of dyads in order for myself to experience myself, you already know that too. And the greatest illusion of all is that of man and woman. At the moment you also know that the spiritual make of this dyad is, as you like to say, out of whack. The mistaken belief in the illusion that the male is superior to the female is the root of all your problems in this world. If you can’t fix that then there is nothing you can fix. All of you created that mistaken belief for a purpose. And that is for all of you to experience that it doesn’t work. We have now come at an era where the world is waking up to this truth. Most of you are now awake from the deep sleep of that mistaken belief. But here’s the problem – now that most of you know the problem, most of you also are still not very sure how to fix the problem.

So how do we fix the problem?

What we’re doing here is a good start. We are discussing the problem. And we are putting it out into the world for everyone to digest and maybe come up with their own discussions and suggestions about the problem.

God, you’re sort of going round and round. You still haven’t answered my question about the man-woman-relationship thing.

I can’t answer the question because you yourself do not know the answer, my dear. I am just your word processor, remember?

I forget, actually. Anyway, since this is as far as we’re gonna get on the subject I’ll stop here. I have to prepare dinner now. Thank you for always being around to discuss what’s messing around with my peace.

You’re very welcome. That’s what I am – peace.

Play Therapy

The Zamboanga city crisis has displaced more than 100,000 people. Many of the women, children, mothers with infants and the elderly are staying in more than 50 evacuation centres. They are facing an uncertain future that will not be made easier with problems like temporary shelters, food scarcity, lack of hygiene, disease, etc.

But most importantly:

“Special care and support services must be provided to children to reduce and deal with conflict-induced psychosocial problems, such as distress, depression, anxiety disorder and trauma.”http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/

In the news—I thank God there are some kind souls who are now providing such post trauma therapy for the evacuees.

It was wonderful to watch children laughing and smiling at a simple puppet show provided by an entertainer on a make-shift stage.

PLAY THERAPY said the sign on a tent where children were given toys and books to take their minds off their harsh reality even for just a few hours.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have celebrities and entertainers visit war-torn countries (in safe zones, of course) where they can perform for victims of war to uplift their spirits even if it’s just for a few hours?

You know like when Bob Hope (Bob who?) and company entertained soldiers during another war.

Providing basic needs is important but nothing can compare to the JOY that will uplift the war-weary spirit.

Oh well…it’s nice to dream, isn’t it?

Nairobi: Frontline & Battleground

I was having an okay Sunday morning until I saw this…(step out of the illusion, Joy, step out of the illusion. Sigh…it’s tough.) Like scenes out of a movie. Dear God.
