The path of love leads to wholeness, peace and freedom.

Luke 21:17-19

“You will be hated by all because of my name, but not a hair on your head will be destroyed. By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”

Jesus promised his followers that they would be persecuted.

When you preach love and equality for all…you can expect to be targeted by those who disagree with you.

But Jesus also promised that if we persevere in following him…our lives will be saved. My advice is to please stop thinking of being “saved” as avoidance of hell.

God has no plans to punish anyone…only to love all. That’s what Love does!

“Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love” (1 John 4:8).

This is Good News!

Following Jesus puts you on the path to wholeness. This path allows your true self to emerge from the chaos (“salvation”).

Jesus will lead you through struggles to new life. He gave us the ultimate example in his death and resurrection.

Any struggle can lead to a deeper and fuller spiritual awareness and experience of God’s love…if we let go of our ego’s desires and go with the flow of Goodness.

Death and defeat do not have the final say! God’s desire is that each of us has life to the full (John 10:10)! It is then that we will have inner peace and joy even amidst the trials.

We will become more fully alive as Christ lives more fully in us.

What could be more important than to discover the true you as a beloved child of God?

That’s who you are…right now…and that is something to be truly thankful for!
