Refine to Purity

Mad desire for Desire and the Water of Life makes Love inflame
A thousand thousand fires and furnaces every second.

Rumi

As my intention to serve G_d’s creatures and therefore Him grows. I am set upon a path of improving myself. Through trial and error, sorrow and joy, madness and serenity.

To experience fully and actively all that this existence offers. I hope for the days when at ultimate peace praising Him that I want of nothing more than to please my Beloved.

As awareness sharpens and failures and faults are exposed, I volunteer to enter the Refining Furnace of Love,  and that all the slag rises and is discarded leaving the purest of Love a human is capable of giving.

  1. Kudo’s to you for wanting to working on yourself. that is the most valuable investment of your time.

    what steps have you taken ? (doing)
    Don’t be so hard on yourself when mistakes arise, you have survived 100% of your worst days so remember you are doing great so far.

    have you tried meditation?

    imo God is Ambiguous, I Believe God is Love – Love is a feeling, and your feelings are determined by what you believe and perceive to be true.

    Love, Light and Nameste

    1. If I am not hard or gentle or ambivalent who is going to be? Yes, I practice meditation and it is as useful as useless as I expect any results from it. Perception is indeed everything and distorted through the lens of programming, appetites, and experience. Thank you for reading

      1. Tough love is best. many people expect to much from meditation – Less is more in this regard.
        the ambivalence of your thoughts is great as you can visualise many perspectives so you are gifted with the power of choice, many people only see the worst of everything and this can dampen their spirits (so to speak)

        Enlightenment is Good and Bad (Yin and Yang) how i choose to perceive every situation i experience on my journey will in turn have an effect on my present and future self. even the smallest of decisions (drink tea or do not drink tea) they all play a part in the end result.

        Persistence is Key when aimed correctly.

      2. Thank you for the kudos, doing anything without expectation is a challenge, devotion to and openness to the mystery, I like the old quote, “Those who can say, don’t know and those who know can’t say”

  2. that is a challenge you must accept.. it gets easier the more you do it, i still at times have expectation with certain things but find my thoughts about it quicker and can catch them before i shout out

    ” that was my idea” ”or i helped him do that” – screaming for my recognition .. if you get the recognition it does make you feel good for a minute but when that minute passes, you are sure the feel the same as before.. so make sure you are comfortable with yourself and things just flow.
