THOUGHTS 4441 TO 4445

MY THOUGHTS 4441
QUESTION 532: DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT THE CHRIST, WHO PREACHED LOVE, COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING, AND FORGIVENESS, IS GOING TO RETURN WITH AN ARMY OF ANGELS AND DESTROY THE SO-CALLED FORCES OF EVIL? IS THAT NOT A POWER SEEKERS PERCEPTION OF HOW THINGS WILL CHANGE? IS NOT THE APOSTLE THOMAS CORRECT WHEN HE SAYS THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS ALREADY HERE WITHIN YOU? EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4442
EASTER: THE CHRIST HAS RETURNED MANY TIMES WITHIN THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO TRULY BELIEVE IN THE COMPASSION. THE FORGIVENESS, AND THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE CHRIST. THE CHRIST HAS RETURNED WITHIN THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO LIVE/HAVE LIVED A LIFE OF COMPASSION, FORGIVENESS, AND UNDERSTANDING REGARDLESS OF THE FAITH THAT THEY BELIEVE IN. YOU CAN SEE EXAMPLES ALL AROUND YOU AND THROUGHOUT HISTORY: ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI, MAHATMA GANDHI, MOTHER TERESA, THE DALAI LAMA, AMONGST MANY OTHERS. THE CHRIST GAVE EXAMPLES OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN AND THE ROMAN WHO CAME TO ASK THE CHRIST TO HEAL HIS SERVANT; NEITHER OF WHOM WERE OF THE CHRIST’S FAITH. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4443
EASTER: IT IS NOT THE TITLE OF ‘CHRISTIAN’ THAT MAKES YOU CHRIST-LIKE. HOWEVER, IT IS WHAT IS IN YOUR HEART AND MIND THAT MAKES YOU CHRIST-LIKE. MAHATMA GANDHI, A HINDU, WAS MORE CHRIST-LIKE THEN THE CHRISTIAN RULERS OF HIS WORLD. THE DALAI LAMA, A BUDDHIST, IS MORE CHRIST-LIKE THEN THE SO-CALLED CHRISTIANS OF TODAY’S WORLD. THE MOST CHRIST-LIKE OF MODERN CHRISTIANS WAS MOTHER TERESA WHO LIVED A CHRIST-LIKE LIFE. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4444
FAITH: TO CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN. A HEBREW, A MUSLIM, A BUDDHIST, A HINDU, OR A MEMBER OF ANY OTHER FAITH DOESN’T MAKE YOU A TRUE MEMBER OF THAT FAITH. WHEN YOU FOLLOW AND LIVE THE PRECEPTS OF THE FAITH YOU CLAIM TO BE A BELIEVER IN, THEN YOU ARE A TRUE MEMBER OF THAT FAITH. THERE ARE MANY CHRISTIANS WHO LIVE IN UNCHRISTIAN LIFE, MANY MUSLIMS WHO LIVE IN UN-ISLAMIC LIFE, MANY BUDDHISTS WHO LIVE A NON-BUDDHISTIC LIFE, MANY HINDUS WHO LIVE A NON-HINDU LIFE, ET CETERA. MANY TALK THE TALK BUT DO NOT WALK THE TALK. YOUR ACTIONS ACTUALLY DEFINE YOU, NOT YOUR WORDS. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4445
CONFLICT: CONFRONTATIONS MAY LEAD TO TEMPORARY VICTORIES AND A TEMPORARY PEACE: HOWEVER EVENTUALLY CONFLICT WILL CREATE MORE DISSATISFACTION, MORE CONFLICTS, AND MORE DISHARMONY. EmilKoval©2013

THOUGHTS 4436 TO 4440

MY THOUGHTS 4436
EASTER: THE CRUCIFIXION IS A SYMBOLIC REMINDER OF LIFE’S DIFFICULTIES. THE RESURRECTION IS THE RECOVERY FROM THOSE CRUCIFYING DIFFICULTIES. THE CRUCIFIXION IS A REMINDER THAT PARTS OF YOU WILL DIE FROM TIME TO TIME. A MINDFUL MOURNING OF THOSE PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL CRUCIFIXIONS IS THE TIME TO RE-SET YOUR SPIRITUAL SELF, WHICH SHOULD RESULT IN THE RESURRECTION OF YOUR SPIRITUALITY. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4437
EASTER: IF YOU ARE A SPIRITUAL PERSON, BY EASTER SUNDAY, YOU SHOULD HAVE REFLECTED VERY DEEPLY ON THE MEANING OF THE CRUCIFIXION OF THE CHRIST. ON EASTER SUNDAY, YOU SHOULD BE READY TO RESTORE OR ENHANCE YOUR PERSONAL SPIRITUALITY. THE CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED BECAUSE OF THE STRONG DESIRES FOR MATERIAL CONTROL AMONG THE POWER SEEKERS. TODAY MANY ARE BEING CRUCIFIED ON A MONETARY MATERIALISTIC CROSS WHICH IS GIVING MANY THE OPPORTUNITY TO REEVALUATE WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT: MATERIAL WEALTH OR SPIRITUAL GROWTH. IF YOU HAVE CHOSEN SPIRITUAL GROWTH, THEN YOU HAVE UNDERSTOOD THE MESSAGE OF THE CHRIST. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4438
EASTER: THE RESURRECTION OF THE YOUR SPIRITUALITY SHOULD BE THE EMPHASIS OF YOUR LIFE ON THIS LEVEL. YOU WILL HAVE FACED MANY PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL CRUCIFIXIONS DURING YOUR LIFE TIME. GOOD FRIDAY IS A GOOD DAY TO REMIND YOU TO REFLECT ON HOW AND WHY YOUR WERE CRUCIFIED. BY EASTER SUNDAY, YOU SHOULD HAVE STARTED TO RESURRECT YOUR BODY, MIND, AND SOUL BY RE-FOCUSING ON YOUR SPIRITUALITY. IS THAT NOT ONE OF THE MESSAGES OF THE CHRIST: ENDURE THE CRISIS, REFLECT ON THE WHY AND HOW, AND RISE LIKE THE PHOENIX FROM THE ASHES OF DEVASTATION. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4439
QUESTION 530: DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT ANY LITTLE PIECE OF REAL ESTATE OR EDIFICE ON THIS PLANET IS MORE IMPORTANT TO YOUR DIETY THAN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE WHICH YOU BELIEVE THAT DIETY HAS CREATED? EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4440
QUESTION 531: WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLES FIGHTING PHYSICAL SPIRITUAL BATTLES OVER PIECES OF TERRITORY WHEN THE REAL SPIRITUAL BATTLES ARE WITHIN ONE’S OWN BODY AND MIND AND SOUL? EmilKoval©2013

THOUGHTS 4431 TO 4435

MY THOUGHTS 4431
CELEBRATION: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A CHRISTIAN TO CELEBRATE CHRISTIAN EVENTS, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A JEWISH PERSON TO CELEBRATE JEWISH EVENTS OR A MUSLIM OR HINDU OR BUDDHIST TO CELEBRATE THOSE WONDERFUL CULTURAL EVENTS HONORED BY MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLES. MAYBE IF WE ALL SHARED OUR CELEBRATIONS WITH EACH OTHER AND SHOW OUR RESPECT FOR THOSE CELEBRATIONS, WE WILL HAVE LESS CONFLICT AND DISAGREEMENT IN THIS WORLD. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4432
CRUCIFIXION: THE CRUCIFIXION OF THE CHRIST HAS IMPORTANT LESSONS. ONE OF THE LESSONS IS FORGIVENESS, NOT RETRIBUTION AGAINST THOSE INVOLVED IN THE CRUCIFIXION. EVEN IN THE LAST MOMENTS OF PHYSICAL AGONY, THE CHRIST CALLED OUT TO HIS FATHER “FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO.” THE CRUCIFIXION ALSO SYMBOLIZES THAT A PHYSICAL DEATH DOES NOT MEAN A SPIRITUAL DEATH, DEMONSTRATED BY THE RESURRECTION ON THE THIRD DAY. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4433
QUESTION 529: SINCE THE CHRIST CLEARLY SAID “FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO”, WHY DO SO MANY STILL SEEK RETRIBUTION FOR AN EVENT THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO FULFILL THE PROPHECY OF THE COMING OF THE CHRIST? WHY DO SO MANY FILL THEIR HEARTS WITH ANGER, HATRED, AND RESENTMENT, INSTEAD OF THE LOVE, THE COMPASSION, AND THE FORGIVENESS OF THE CHRIST? EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4434
EASTER: THE CHRIST’S MESSAGE WAS OF LOVE, COMPASSION, AND FORGIVENESS. THAT IS THE SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE OF EASTER. HE SAID GIVE THE ROMANS THE MATERIAL THINGS THEY WANT, AND GIVE GOD YOUR SOUL. THE TEMPLE AT THAT TIME HAD BECOME A BUSINESS USING THE NAME OF GOD TO COLLECT WEALTH AS MANY CHURCHES, ASHRAMS, SYNAGOGUES, BUDDHIST TEMPLES, MOSQUES DO TODAY. IF YOU DO NOT PAY THEM, YOU CANNOT JOIN OR ATTEND THEIR “HOLY PLACE” TO HONOR GOD. THIS IS NOT WHAT THE CHRIST, THE BUDDHA, MOHAMMED, NOR KRISHNA INTENDED. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4435
EASTER: THE GOSPEL OF THOMAS SAYS THAT THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS HERE NOW. IT IS WITHIN YOU. THE CHRIST SAID THAT YOU CAN DO WHAT HE DID BY GOING INWARD. SYMBOLICALLY HE TORE DOWN THE TEMPLE SPIRITUALLY AND THE ROMANS LATER DID IT PHYSICALLY. THE TRUE MEANING IF THE RESURRECTION ON EASTER IS THAT EVERYONE CAN RESURRECT THEIR SPIRITUALITY BY GOING INWARD. THERE ARE MANY SPIRITUALLY ENLIGHTENED SOULS IN EVERY DAY LIFE THAT CAN BE RECOGNIZED BY THEIR ACTION. MOST ARE NOT RECOGNIZED BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT BEEN DEEMED ENLIGHTENED BY THE ‘PRIESTHOOD’ OR THOSE IN POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY. EmilKoval©2013

THOUGHTS 4426 TO 4430

MY THOUGHTS 4426
GOOD FRIDAY: IT IS CALLED GOOD FRIDAY’ BECAUSE IT MARKS THE END OF THE LIMITATIONS OF THE PAST. IT IS TIME TO REFLECT ON THE PAST, WHERE YOU ARE NOW, AND WHAT YOU WISH YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE TO BE. YOUR REFLECTIONS SHOULD RESULT IN THE RESURRECTION OF YOUR SPIRITUAL SELF. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4427
GOOD FRIDAY: GOOD FRIDAY IS THE PERFECT TIME TO REFLECT ON HOW MUCH OF YOUR SPIRITUAL YOU THAT YOU HAVE ALLOWED TO DIMINISH DURING YOUR MATERIAL LIFE. REFLECT DEEPLY ENOUGH SO THAT YOU CAN RESURRECT YOUR SPIRITUAL SELF FROM THE QUAGMIRE OF MATERIALISM. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4428
GOOD FRIDAY: THE CRUCIFIXION IS A REMINDER OF HOW NEGATIVE FORCES WILL TRY TO CORRUPT OR DESTROY YOUR SPIRITUALITY. YOU SHOULD REFLECT ON THE WORDS OF THE CHRIST DURING THE TRIALS OF THAT DAY. REFLECT ON WHERE YOU ARE WITH YOUR SPIRITUALITY AND RESURRECT IT IF YOU HAVE SUPPRESSED IT. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4429
GOOD FRIDAY: RESURRECTING YOUR SPIRITUALITY DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO SUPPRESS THE PLEASURES IN LIFE. JUST LIVE THOSE PLEASURES IN YOUR LIFE IN A SPIRITUAL, COMPASSIONATE, AND LOVING WAY. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4430
GOOD FRIDAY: THE CRUCIFIXION OF THE CHRIST WAS, TO THE ROMANS, AN ATTEMPT TO KEEP POLITICAL STABILITY IN THE AREA. TO THE PRIESTS OF THE TEMPLE, THE CHRIST WAS A THREAT TO THEIR POWER BASE, SO THEY PUSHED THE ROMANS TO PUT THE CHRIST TO DEATH. TO THE REVOLUTIONARIES, THE CHRIST WAS A THREAT TO THEIR MOVEMENT BECAUSE HE ADVOCATED PEACEFUL CHANGES. TO THE AVERAGE PERSON, THE CHRIST WAS EITHER A MESSIAH OR A FALSE PROPHET. THE CRUCIFIXION DEMONSTRATES THE WEAKNESSES OF HUMAN SELFISHNESS THAT IS BASED ON POWER SEEKING AND MATERIALISM. EmilKoval©2013

THOUGHTS 4421 TO 4425

MY THOUGHTS 4421
GRATITUDE: WE SHOULD EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE FOR EVERY POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE EVENT THAT HAPPENS IN OUR LIVES. THE POSITIVE EVENTS GIVE US GREAT JOY. THE NEGATIVE EVENTS GIVE US GREAT LESSONS TO LEARN ABOUT THE WORLD AROUND US AND OURSELVES. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4422
GRATITUDE: AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE CAN IMPROVE OUR LIVES GREAT WITH SUCH SIMPLE EXPRESSIONS LIKE ‘THANK YOU’, ‘I APPRECIATE IT’, AND ‘YOU ARE WELCOME’. AN ATTITUDE OF RETRIBUTION CAN ONLY DIMINISH THE QUALITY OF OUR LIVES WITH HATEFUL VENGEFUL STATEMENTS. THE CHOICE FOR YOU IS TO BE POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE IN YOUR THOUGHTS. IT IS THAT SIMPLE. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4423
GRATITUDE: AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE CAN LIFT US INTO A LEVEL OF HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS. AN ATTITUDE OF RETRIBUTION EITHER LEAVES US IN A STATIC POSITION OR PUTS US IN LOWER LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND LOWERS OUR SPIRITUALITY. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4424
QUESTION 527: WHICH MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER INTERNALLY: BEING GRATEFUL OR BEING REVENGEFUL? WHICH ATTITUDE DOMINATES YOUR THOUGHTS: GRATITUDE OR RETRIBUTION? EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4425
QUESTION 528: DO YOU HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE OR AN ATTITUDE OF RETRIBUTION? EmilKoval©2013

THOUGHTS 4416 TO 4420

MY THOUGHTS 4416
EASTER: THE CHRIST GAVE A GOOD EXAMPLE OF PATIENCE IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE. HE ASKED HIS DISCIPLES TO PRAY WITH HIM TO HELP CHANGE HIS PENDING SACRIFICE. HOWEVER, THEY FEEL ASLEEP WHILE HE PRAYED ALONE. WHEN THE SOLDIERS CAME TO ARREST THE CHRIST, THE CHRIST STOPPED THE VIOLENT REACTION OF HIS DISCIPLE PETER HE REPLACED THE SEVERED EAR OF THE SOLDIER AND QUIETLY ACCEPTED HIS FATE. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4417
EASTER: WHO TRULY BETRAYED THE CHRIST? THE ONES WHO DID NOT PRAY WITH HIM AND DENIED THE CHRIST THREE TIMES, OR THE ONE THAT THE CHRIST TALKE TO AND SAID “GO AND DO WHAT YOU MUST DO!” EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4418
SERVING: THE BEST WAY TO SERVE THE WORLD AROUND YOU IS TO BE IN THAT WORLD AND BEING AN EXAMPLE OF HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE WITHIN THAT WORLD. THIS WOULD BE MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN TRYING TO DICTATE HOW THAT WORLD SHOULD BE, HOW THOSE PEOPLE SHOULD LIVE THEIR LIVES, AND HOW THEY SHOULD RELATE TO EACH OTHER. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4419
QUESTION 525: WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE CRYING OUT FOR LOVE WHILE THEY KEEP THEIR ARMS FOLDED NOT WILLING TO ACCEPT LOVE? EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4420
QUESTION 526: HOW CAN YOU ATTRACT A LOVING PARTNER IN THE PRESENT, IF YOU KEEP COMPLAINING ABOUT A PAST BAD RELATIONSHIP? EmilKoval©2013

THOUGHTS 4411 TO 4415

MY THOUGHTS 4411
THINKING: WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR OWN STRENGTH OF MIND, YOU CAN EASILY REPLACE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS WITH POSITIVE THOUGHTS. IN ORDER TO STRENGTHEN ONE’S MIND, IT IS IMPORTANT TO TAKE AN INWARD JOURNEY AND DISCOVER HOW AND WHY YOU THINK THE WAY YOU DO. WHEN YOU DO THIS, YOU CAN START CHANGING HOW YOU THINK AND WHY YOU THINK. REMEMBER THAT HOW YOU THINK ABOUT THE WORLD AROUND IS HOW YOU SEE THE WORLD AROUND YOU. THE WORLD AROUND YOU IS REALLY A REFLECTION OF YOUR THOUGHTS. BE MINDFUL SO THAT YOU CAN DEVELOP YOUR OWN STRENGTH OF MIND. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4412
THINKING: WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW AND WHY YOU THINK, YOUR MIND BECOMES YOUR GREATEST FRIEND AND PROTECTOR. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW AND WHY YOU THINK, THEN YOUR MIND BECOMES SUBJECT TO THE THOUGHTS OF OTHERS AND THEY BECOMES YOUR ENSLAVERS. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4413
THINKING: REMEMBER THAT HOW YOUR MIND IS SET, HOW YOU THINK YOU ARE, AND HOW YOU EVALUATE THE WORLD AROUND YOU IS HOW AND WHO YOU ARE. YOU ARE EITHER THE MASTER OF YOUR THOUGHTS, OR SOMEONE ELSE IS THE MASTER OF YOUR THOUGHTS. YOUR CHOICE! EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4414
QUESTION 524: CAN YOU THINK FOR YOURSELF, ARE YOU AFRAID TO THINK FOR YOURSELF, OR DO YOU NOT KNOW HOW TO THINK FOR YOURSELF? EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4415
QUESTION 525: CAN YOU REPLACE UNDESIRABLE THOUGHTS WITH DESIRABLE THOUGHTS? DO YOU HAVE STRENGTH OF MIND TO DO THIS OR DO YOU DEPEND ON OTHERS TO TELL YOU WANT AND HOW TO THINK? EmilKoval©2013
