Jesus said the Kingdom of God is in you. I know what you’re just saying when you read this statement. Assegid, I knew that when I was a kid! You may understand this powerful statement mentally.
But, have you got it at a spiritual level? Do you fully understand that that the same Power that initiated the creation of the spiritual world, and this physical universe is operating in you? I hope so…
No wonder why Paul said you’re the temple of God. We host the creative Spirit that has no limit what so ever. He can create through us what no one had ever thought about.
The question is not that this limitless Power resides in us. Many of us got this at a mental level. It is whether we know how to collaborate as It cannot operate in the mental and physical realms without our cooperation.
That was why we were created to be co-creators and partners with the Divine. That was why He shared His glory and endowed us with some mental and spiritual faculties no other creation has.
I’ve had conversations with some who resent my message on greatness. Of course, I’m grateful that they were courageous enough to let me know what they are thinking! For these bold souls, they think I’m feeding my ego, and even theirs 🙂 They think that I’m not doing the Lord’s work. They believe that I’m out of touch with reality. They also think that I undermine ordinary deeds and individuals. Not at all!
Actually, people with ego protect their ego from being wounded by aiming too low and hiding in the name of humility 🙂 It takes true humility and courage first to honor the great One who created them to manifest His greatness through and with them by allowing Him to use them. And then, to have faith to take risks and willing to fail and be embarrassed. These are the dues one must pay for aiming high to pursue his/her God-given purpose. Temporary failure and defeat are imminent, and part of the process to manifest your inherent greatness.
The important thing in this fulfilling and rewarding journey as one obedience to the Divine than the actual work that person does. Your unconditional obedience that comes from unadulterated faith is what matters to the Divine and in eternity. Otherwise, the actual work will be done by the Father.
Jesus never lifted a finger! He believed and spoke. The Holy Spirit acted on the Words. As a result, the storm calmed down, the man born without eyes saw, the multitude got fed, the dead raised, etc.
All deeds are important and necessary for life and His divine agendas to succeed on this planet. However, the righteous Judge cannot glorify anyone now and/or in eternity without that person earning it. Faith in Him, worshipping, and appeasing Him alone don’t cut it. The question is what have you done with the talent He gave you?
Think about this. The faith of Mary was exceptional. She believed the Divine. She was persuaded that she could be used by God in a mighty way. I don’t think anybody else before her would have believed they could carry Divine in their womb and hold Him on their hands while they were still virgins.
When it comes to her actual work, Mary wasn’t exceptional. Billions have raised their kids paying dire prices. In that regard, if you look at the job, Mary was doing a common task like billions of other loving moms before and after her. The difference was her faith that allowed her to accept this once in a million year seemingly unlikely assignment unconditionally. Not just her faith was great though. Her commitment including the persecution she endured was great.
Her job wasn’t like Jesus. It didn’t take to preach, heal, and raise the dead. She wasn’t tasked like Paul who wrote 2/3 of the New Testament. She wasn’t stoned, beaten, persecuted, and jailed like him. However, she was faithful to her job to carry Jesus in her womb and raise Him, that is it! As a result of her obedience to fulfill her purpose, she will remain honored both in this universe and in eternity.
Thus, whatever mundane your assignment may appear to you or others, as far as it is from your Creator, give it your best. If the assignment was given from Him and you are committed to doing your human part, no question, you will get fulfilled.
However, the litmus paper whether you have taken the right assignment, regardless of whether it is grandeur or not, is that no one on earth can undermine your fulfillment when you are done with your assignment. They may resist or even ignore it at first but they cannot help it but honor you in due time. If not your generation, generations to come. Nonetheless, that shouldn’t be your worry right now.
Let the Divine who knows the how and excels in glorifying those who deserve it worry about that. You worry should be about knowing who you are, why He designed you, and giving your best to pursue and fulfill that. If you begin this rewarding journey today, if you have not yet, wherever you may be right now, you have begun a greatness journey that will end well- allowing you to leave a legacy to this and generations to come.
I had an interesting conversation with a guy who claims to be an atheist.
Let me confess! I prefer to engage in conversations with people who don’t have preconceived rigid beliefs. Such people hide behind dogmas. They never venturing out courageously to explore and test whether what had been handed down to them were true or not. They are blindly loyal to something they don’t ‘know’, truth they cannot ‘explain’. What a reckless living for someone to trust another fallible human being (s) with a serious undertaking like the truth and one’s future.
Anyways, with this brother, I had a joy sharing with him what I believe, and open to hearing his point of view. Since I don’t learn by talking a lot alone, which I wasn’t good at in the past, I kept asking questions to learn. Some of the answers were satisfactory while others weren’t.
One of the questions was about whether he believes anything else outside of himself, and the answer was ‘science’. He was shocked when I told him that I also believe in science! After a quiet brief moment, I explained that science took away many of my doubts and created in me unshakable faith.
Rather than moving me away from God and the Higher Power that created me and this intelligent universe, it actually brought me closer! I can now explain the spiritual benefits of fasting, prayer, chanting, speaking in other tongues, and so on. Scientific fields such as psychology, neuroscience, medicine, and so on have become tools to support some of the ages-old spiritual truths!
Of course, I had one disclaimer to my friend, which differentiates the two of us. I go beyond science, which can only deal with the physical and mental universes. I dive deep into the spiritual world that cannot be discerned and understood by my little brain- the portal (hardware) to my mind (software), which has limited scope!
The mind is a tool given to our soul to understand the physical world, and successfully navigate to fulfill her assignment in this universe. Our individual mind itself must tap into the Universal Mind, that designed and created the universe using certain physical laws, to serve our soul effectively.
We also need our spirit side to lead a holistic life that taps into the spiritual world that brought forth and sustains the physical and the mental universes. Stay tuned for future Facebook Live that will cover some of the topics mentioned in this post…
Who is chattering in your head 24/7? It isn’t a tricky question. Your mind never shuts up while you are awake. At night, he sneaks and create dreams or nightmares 🙂
It is doing its job, which is informing your soul what is happening and expecting the latter to do something about it. Th mind is a servant of your soul, which is in the command center. If the mind is the software, and the brain is the hardware, the soul is the one operating the software.
Unfortunately, very few recognize the one always talking in their head is their mind, not their true self. Few quiet the chatter as they wish, and in charge of their inner conversations. However, very very very few shut it off and turn on the spirit to reveal what is happening in the spiritual world- the real world and mother ship that created and sustains this gigantic universe.
These very few listen through their spirit the conversations of the celestial beings in eternity. True Prophets eavesdrop in the spiritual world and come to know what will happen centuries ahead. That was how the coming of Jesus was prophesied centuries prior to His coming!
It may shock you as you consider yourself just a regular ‘believer’ that you too are endowed to silence your constant talker- your mind, Mr. Talker, once in a while and unleash your spirit to chatter in you based on what it sees happening on the other side of eternity.
Are you able to quiet your mind? Are you in charge and deciding when to turn on and off your mind? Are you, most importantly, tapping into the spiritual and invisible world?
More Facebook lives on this and more in the future. This weekend, I will talk about the Mentality of the Biblic Greats. Stay tuned and like our Facebook page to get a notification when I go live.
Our true identity, which we call Self is spiritual. It is composed of our soul, mind, and spirit. Our body is just a servant. It houses our true being.
The part of the body that closely works with our mind is the brain. The brain is the hardware. The mind is the software.
The body is a bio-suit that shields our Self, which is non-form and spiritual. The body shields It from the harsh physical environment not conducive for spirits and also allows It to obey the universal laws such as gravity in order for our soul to fulfill her assignments in this universe.
Our fulfillment demands aligning these three parts- the mind, soul, and spirit. However, this journey is a lifetime one. It is easier said than done. We all are on this journey except that some of us are advanced while others in the middle, and still others at the lower end.
There are three major problems that are on our way from attaining the alignment of the trios: a) Many of us identify with our body and call it Self, b) Still many of us don’t recognize the three parts of Self, and c) Some of us do recognize the trios but fail to align the three parts and act harmoniously toward finishing the eternal destiny of our soul.
The highest form of our evolution is when we achieve the alignment of these three parts and operate harmoniously as one being without contradictions. That is true integrity. It is an authentic life. And we were designed to attain this during our lifetime.
God exists in trinity. But, he has kept his Oness for ages perfectly aligning Itself. We are His images and meant to replicate His styles.
Where do you find yourself on the spectrum? What is helping you? What are the challenges? What are you doing now to go to the next spiritual growth?
I’ll go Facebook live to cover this and many other themes. If you haven’t yet, go to our Facebook page and like so that you will know when I go live. This weekend, I’ll be live to talk about the Mentality of Biblical Greats.
Don’t tell me that you don’t need God, the Higher Power, whatever you may call Him.
We would have killed ourselves to death a long time ago if He didn’t build some systems in place without asking us to vote.
He knew how dumb and reckless we can get when we are left to our devices. When we are independent and disconnected from our Source.
Just think about why we eat & drink regularly. If you think we are responsible, you are giving us the credit we don’t deserve 🙂 If He didn’t create built-in starvation and thirst systems, we would have stopped making efforts to eat and drink as needed, and as a result starved to death.
The human race would have extinct if He left it for us alone. Knowing us very well, He configured us in such a way that we seek the opposite sex as a result of hormonal pressure, which perpetuates reproduction
We could have abused our body cutting it everywhere we are delighted to do so, thanks to pain. The list continues.
If you would like to remain productive, contented, and fulfilled in this universe, just be humble, wise, and smart by stay connected and flow with the Intelligence that created the environment and brought you forth by designing you awesomely. This is for your own advantage. Otherwise, you keep hurting and remained unfruitful.
Don’t let your persona, which is the creation of your mind, takes charge of your life and destiny. The ego is temporal. It was not there when the soul joined the universe from eternity to time and space. It wasn’t there when you were a kid. That was why you were a believer of anything is possible, full of love, forgiveness, dreamer, and courageous even to the point of swallowing a nake or touching fire without fearing of death or burning 🙂
Ego came to existence as your mind tried to help you survive and assimilate into this world. As you seek approval, protection, and belongingness. No wonder why ego is loyal to the temporal world, as it is temporal itself without any chance to transcend beyond this temporal world. Its job is survival, to protect you (itself) through fear. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of success, and so on.
Let your soul, the Light, that shares the very nature with the Source of all lights, take charge of your life. Be a kid again. Be a believer again. Be light …
Let your soul lead you to love, service, and to pursue your assignment.
At the end of the day, your peace, contentment, and ultimately your future beyond this temporal world is dependent on the status of your soul and whether she finished the assignment she was given before she joined the universe…

Go after the desire of your soul. Be egoless. Be willing to fail & laughed at.
Only the egotistical hide behind small dreams & aspirations to make sure they don’t fail and embarrass their ego. They think others are egotistical but the majority of their fingers are pointing back toward them. That is the trick ego uses. Only the egotistical are afraid of defeat and criticism. Their ego protects itself and they have been used to do the dirty jobs for it in the expenses of their very soul!
The bold who aligned their ego with their soul take chances. They go after the very aspirations of the soul, which doesn’t have any limitations. It thrives when unleashed to fly high. Unlike the ego, it is not scared of heights 🙂
The soul doesn’t know failure. It learns & grows toward perfection- to become one with God at the end of its earthly journey!
Oneness with God!
Our journey in this physical universe must end with unity with God. That is the end goal whether we get there or not during our lifetime. God is Love and we, our soul, must become love and should be taken alive experiencing translation, to go from life to eternity in a blink of an eye.
Jesus showed us what it means to be one with God- the Source of everything we see and perceive in the physical and spiritual worlds. He said I and My Father are One. He demonstrated that beyond mere words. He lived it and left with us some footsteps to follow…
Take a few minutes today and begin to crave oneness with Divine.
You can only unchain the greatness He did sow in you if and only if you seek oneness with Him.
Tap into His unlimited greatness to manifest it in your world in your unique ways…
Witnessing many leaders chase their followers, it makes me wonder whether they do know what leading means?
The leaders of all leaders Jesus never chased anyone. Actually, He put some criteria and ground rules to those who desired to follow Him.
As far as you know who you’re, your assignment, clarity of where you are taking your people, and conviction with a solid character, the right people who meant to be served by your calling and gifting will find you.
As you chase the wrong crowd, don’t make it hard for the right ones to find you. Get planted and bear fruit!!!
