Birthday of Love
Today is my 63rd birthday and thanks in part to Bro. Dean Arnell it is a cosmic birthday of love for me. The transformation Bro. Arnell has facilitated deep within my damaged heart is Biblical in it’s magnitude. It feels as though Bro. Arnell has cast a demon out of me. I was blind but now I can see and as a result my love has been purified. My goal is to practice pure and perfect love and compassion.
Matthew 8:28-34 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
28 When He came to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, two men who were demon-possessed met Him as they were coming out of the tombs. They were so extremely violent that no one could pass by that way. 29 And they cried out, saying, “[a]What business do we have with each other, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before [b]the time?” 30 Now there was a herd of many swine feeding at a distance from them. 31 The demons began to entreat Him, saying, “If You are going to cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.” 32 And He said to them, “Go!” And they came out and went into the swine, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and perished in the waters. 33 The herdsmen ran away, and went to the city and reported everything, [c]including what had happened to the demoniacs. 34 And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they implored Him to leave their region.
I always knew that someday I would get my head out of my own ass and it feels like today is the day. It is now time for me to be the love. Now is the time for me to practice brotherly love instead of just blogging about it. The purpose of publishing these blogs is so that when I read them two or three years later I say to myself, “Oh yeah, I’m supposed to be practicing Christ Consciousness.”
