Me? Thanks my Father! I got my daily bouts with the carnal self in me and in others but! You resolve them all. I truly have the peace that surpasses all understanding. That peace and love is really beyond my words to define; it’s the power of love from on high—totally beyond human conception.

In a nut shell, to be genuine does not mean one has to be in a state of euphoria at all times. It does not mean one has to grin & bear. It does not mean one has to be a ‘yes’ man. It does not mean that one has to look good to others. It does not mean one to be a ‘door mate’ for all the boars in the world. It does not mean one has to be a humanitarian or a lover of animals. It does not mean one has to be the help bank for the poor.
To be genuine means inward peace regardless negative or positive circumstances. Power to deny or not oneself. No longer a need to retaliate in adverse circumstances. No need to get puffed up with compliments. Power to show kindness to the enemy. Power to take one’s shirt off for the one so demanding it. Power to love & hate for the good of all. Full to the brim with the Power of love from on high by that same power not by any merits of that one undeserving creature.

Wow! Did I write that? Yes I did but! Not by my power or might. Even more, not even an inkling or aspiration to take credit for those words. Really? Yes, really. No more that insidious ‘want’ of my carnal self to get that coveted human approval to validate myself. Does that mean I am ‘self-less’? Nay!
Ha! So, that’s the aversion in my heart for the ‘good’ man & woman captivating the hearts & minds nowadays. My friend Pat is good, really ‘good’ not only in her eyes but also in the eyes of her children & friends. As I shared my aversion with Pat she told me, “I am a stench unto your nostrils.” And I said, “Yes! Along with all the ‘saints’ and ‘holy’ ones in the world”
Wow! That conversation took place around 1 am. Pat & I been talking for an hour. We decided to quit & eat. After I ate I headed for bed. I slept from two to five. I woke up so refreshed. I wrote what above is written like taking dictation from the Spirit of our Father/Creator within me. Surprise! Not an inkling of that carnal-self injecting any fear or doubt within me.
