Conflicts with your views and the views your parents espouse

Hi,

I love my Dad and Mom.  We have a great time together.  When they were here, I brought up the rather touchy subject about how to share the ideas I get from the Divine.  It brought up some very real and poignant discussions between my father and I.  Have you had heated discussions with your parents?  If so, I would like to hear about them.

Here is my summarized journal entry and the rather provocative response I got from God.

I love you!

Paul

DSC00367I just had a rather heated discussion with my dad.  I introduced some of the ideas I have about sharing these ideas I get and he went almost immediately to telling me the “scriptures” he believes in are a better source for “truth” and if my viewpoints vary from his interpretation of the “quotes,” then I am wrong.  So are the other people who do not embrace these ideas because they won’t get the blessings they would get, if they ascribe to these rules.

He also had a concern that those on the other side have agendas.  They may be evil and want to lead us astray or they may want someone to do temple work for those on the other side and only certain people are able or willing to listen to receive these kinds of communications.  In other words, only special people with a certain level of righteousness can get help or need to do errands based on the interests of those who have something to get done or say.

It’s great to hear other’s points of view and what they feel they need to defend and why they defend them.  It is disconcerting to a person brought up all their life in a certain theology to have to consider other points of view.  They like the structure and the rules they live by and it is threatening to have either other rules or to have no rules and have it be up to them to live ethically.

The ideas They are sharing with me are beginning to take hold in me.  I can see why a bigger, more universal approach is better.  It promotes more love and intelligence.  It promotes tolerance and understanding and the idea…all people’s points of view and perspectives are valid to them.  What results from these perspectives is what is important to observe, to figure out what works best.

The discussion about You and who You are and who has the best interpretation and the true interpretation of You causes a lot of problems and arguments.  Why are You such a troublemaker and so elusive with what and how You are?

You can say this and you can say that about who and what God is.  You can speculate about what I am doing and what your relationship with Me is.

You can find new ways of finding out more about Me as well.  There are many options available to you.  Which ones are you exploring?

It is one thing to take what you learned from others and what you say I said or did from books, but it is much better to find out for yourself.  What others say is what they say and it is only relevant to where they were in their lives and knowledge at the time.  These ideas others give you are useful for perspective but they are only one person sharing.

What can you find out if you combine all the different ideas and come up the best of what has been accumulated?  What if you looked at what has been written and then communicate with Me directly to see what you see is different when you ask me one to one?  What are you experiencing in your life where your experience differs from what others are experiencing?

If you look at your experiences objectively, and look at what others see, then come to Me and discuss what you come up with, what do you think you will discover?  If you are open when you come here, you will find out that many aspects of what you have been taught are inaccurate and slanted.  What will you do to the people who taught you then?

Will you be angry and resentful to them?  Will you banter and try to change their points of view?  Once you have seen this new light, will you be just as intolerant of them as they have been to your experiences?  If you think you have the best or only views of God because you do your homework, what do you say to those who don’t like your grades?

Clearly, finding out about God or any of the other intelligences or entities will be more accurate if you do it directly.  Will you get past your fears and do this or continue to rely on others for your ideas?  Will you open up and listen once you get past your fears or will you hold onto and defend the teachings you were given?

Once you open up your mind and views to new perspectives, will you then act on these ideas or keep them to yourselves and hide away from the criticism and name calling you will inevitably run into?  Will you change your views and your actions and shift quickly with each new insight?

What will you do when the ideas you get are so different, so counter to all you have been taught, it pushes you to the limits of your commitment to grow and learn?  What if all you have been given is rudimentary and flawed?  What kind of will do you have to continue on the path of advancement and growth, regardless of how radical and divisive the ideas are?

How to move ahead

You can take an idea that comes from God and just accept it fully and completely and then move ahead with vigor on its implementation with no regrets or worries.  We have the perspective of an infinite number of transactions and interactions and know just what is the optimum stance and viewpoint to take and so you get to have that gift to you.  The gift is available to anyone who asks just like everything else here.  All it takes is the inquiry and a willingness to do something with it.  Altho the gifts are always free, there is a reduction in your abilities to respond when you do not respond and you are also limiting yourself to what you will receive in the future because you cannot receive something you are not ready for.
