Angels on Your Shoulder

Angels on Your Shoulder


If Jesus were alive today

posted by Susan Gregg

I was having coffee with some friends here in Lithuania and I was talking about recording my blog posts as videos. One of my friends was saying videos are popular, not because people are too lazy to read but because they are easier to consume. I agree. Then we were talking about people’s beliefs and opinions. Out of my mouth came, “If Jesus were alive he would be on YouTube.” I am sure he would be.

He was a man born before his time. His teachings are much more in alignment with contemporary spirituality and I doubt we would have crucified him, although sometimes when I watch the news I wonder! Would Jesus decide to burn the Koran? Or would he find wisdom in all spiritual book?


How could anyone who claims to follow the teachings of Jesus preach hate? How can followers of a man who taught only love judge terrorists, homosexuals, or anyone else for that matter? That is something beyond my understanding.

Angels, God, Jesus are all about love. Where in the definition of love is there any room for judgment? I am half way around the world watching how the world stage reacts to some “Christian’ minister in Florida preach decide to burn the Koran on September 11. It did get him a lot of press and maybe that matters more than his spiritual alignment. How is burning this book a statement to anyone of anything other than disrespect?

Who defines sin? Certainly not God, at least not the God of my understanding. My God loves all of creation even people like Hitler and ministers who preach hate. I must admit I have a hard time emulating that love when I see others judge so vehemently.

Every day I pray to release all judgments and to see the world through the eyes of love. The gift of life is there are so many opportunities for me to do that, for me to see judgment and return love instead. Some days it just takes more practice and fortitude to do that.

I pray that, just for today, I can love even those so foolish as to call themselves Christians and then burn someone else’s holy book. How are terrorists created? With loving thoughts or fear based thoughts of judgment and hate?

Before you judge, you might want to think about what kind of world your thoughts are creating! After this little hissy fit I will spend sometime praying and sending love. I will write a letter of appreciation for the contrast others judgment creates so I have another opportunity to choose love instead!

With love and aloha,
Susan

    Beautifully said! God is within each of us. God is love.. But not everyone acts that way. Too bad.. the internet has allowed this preacher to become a celebrity and he makes the rest of us, the Christian believers, look bad. Time to move away from this.

    I FOLLOW HINDUISM AND QUIET LOVE MY RELIGION…. BUT ONE THING I KNOW IS THAT GOD! NO MATTER WHAT WE ALL REFER TO HIM AS… WOULD NEVER ACCEPT US DISRESPECTING ONE ANOTHER… AND I AM POSSITIVE THAT EVERY HOLY BOOK IN THIS WORLD PROFESSES RESPECT FOR YOUR PEOPLE.
    I WAS TOLD THIS AWESOME STORY ON A 8 YEAR OLD MUSLIM BOY WHO WAS BROUGHT UP WITH HIS CULTURAL MORALS… ONE DAY HE FOUND A BIBLE AND NO ONE WOULD HAVE ANY IDEA AS TO WHAT THIS CHILD WAS THINKING, BUT HE DECIDED THAT EVERYWHERE HE WENT THIS BIBLE SHOULD BE WITH HIM. WHEN ASKED WHY DOES HE CARRY THIS BIBLE AROUND IN SUCH SAFE KEEPING, HE COMMENTED THAT IT WAS A HOLY BOOK AND SHOULD NOT BE THROWN AWAY BUT BE RESPECTED FOR ALL THE KNOWLEDGE IT CONTAINED… NOW WHO WOULD OF EXPECTED AN 8 YEAR OLD TO BE SO WISE!!! I AM SOUTH AFRICAN AND IN MY COUNTRY I AM POUD TO SAY THAT THERE IS SUCH GREAT RESPECT FOR CULTURE AND BELIEFS!!! WE ARE GREATLY BLESSED!

What do angels know that we don't know?
The main thing angels know that we tend to forget is that this is a safe universe and that we are loved, unconditionally. They know that only the love is real and that everything else is an illusion or delusion created by our filter system: our beliefs, agreements and assumptions. Love, happin

Refelctions on the Vietnam War
I was surprised when I was reminded that it was the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. I was in high school when the war started and much of my early life was lived against the back drop of vivid images of the war every night on the evening news. When I was in college the massacre at Kent State
