…Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”
― Mary Oliver
“This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.”

“A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it’s the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do and that you’ve ever done. But what’s yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it’ll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won’t have to put it back in the sky again.”

“I’ve been in love before, it’s like a narcotic. At first it brings the euphoria of complete surrender. The next day you want more. You’re not addicted yet, but you like the sensation, and you think you can still control things.You think about the person you love for two minutes then forget them for three hours. But then you get used to that person, and you begin to be completely dependent on them. Now you think about him for three hours and forget him for two minutes. If he’s not there, you feel like an addict who can’t get a fix. And just as addicts steal and humiliate themselves to get what they need, you’re willing to do anything for love.”- By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept”

poor and rich and white and black,

when you don’t like a thing is change it.
If you can’t change it,
change the way you think about it.”

Treat all fairly, or they will seek revenge. Be careful with your money. Hold fast to your beliefs and others will listen.”

“Before studying philosophy, every time remember what Socrates said: “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think”. Philosophy is not a science in strict sense of the term, it cannot give you ready-form and closed-end answers, it can inspire and direct you to find them on your own. Study various philosophical schools, get familiar with different philosophical traditions, then forget them all and find your own way. This is a fundamental approach to philosophy and the method of philosophizing.”
― Elmar Hussein

But thou shalt remember the lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant which He sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18
I can’t be used to obtain the savior and heaven.
-Money agreed.
Here money itself has agreed, I can’t be used to obtain a savior and heaven. What then can I say?
Money is an article which may be used as a universal passport to everywhere except to obtain a savior and heaven – W.F. Kumuyi.
On a leaflet was written, do you know that you’ll outlive the sun? Do you know that when the earth and the stars have all passed away, you’ll just be beginning your endless day – a time without end? Once you are born you’ll never cease to leave. You’ll live forever; you’ll be alive eternally. Eternity has no end. This is solemn and fearful truth. Suppose it were possible to tie a rope from the earth to heaven and an ant were to go to the end and return on this rope, when the ant has done that a hundred times, then a small fraction of eternity has passed. Suppose a small boy were to empty an ocean with a cup, the time it will take the boy to do so is a very tiny part of eternity. If it were possible to gather all the books that have ever been written in all fields of human Endeavour and in all languages, and a student were to read them one by one, the time he’ll spend reading all the books will only amount to a minute fraction of eternity. If a grain of sand at the seashore will represent a year only a small negligible part of eternity will all amount to. If a bird went to sharpen its beak once a year at a mountain, when the bird wears the mountain in this way, only an insignificant part of eternity would have passed. Eternity is the life- time of the never- dying God. And you’ll be alive eternally. Once born, a person remains consciously alive forever.
Eternity doesn’t terminate at the time of death. Death is just another wrung on the ladder of eternity. It’s only a gateway to eternity- eternity in heaven or in hell. There is the resurrection of life and there is the resurrection of damnation. There is no neutral place. These are stark realities you must face.
Choose you this day. Where do you want to spend eternity? You can only answer with an action.
Eternity in hell is sure for every sinner who refuses to repent. Choose you this day. Where’ll you spend eternity? With God in heaven? Then you must repent now. He that covereth his sins shall not prosper but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. – Proverbs 28:13.

Confession (salvation pill)

Step one:
Place your right hand on your navel, close your eyes and imagine Jesus Christ standing before you.

Step two:
Prayer of salvation
Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for saving me. I believe you died for my sake. I surrender all to you. Purify, sanctify and justify me. Erase the consequences of my sins. Make me rapture able. Write my name in the book of life. Have mercy upon me and let your grace continually abide with me. Amen.

Wow!!! You have just signed into the resurrection of life. See how the hosts of angels are jubilating for you.
From now on:
But Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.

You shall prosper
…And he (you) shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his (your) fruit in his season, his leaves shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper… Psalm 1:1-3

Now therefore fear the lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods your fathers served… Joshua 24:14.

…as for me and my house (family), we will serve the LORD…Joshua 24:15-16
