Spiritual Discernment

By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Success, Prosperity.

When you face unwanted challenges, or even unexpected blessings, you may search for the logic behind things.  And sometimes you can’t figure it out…

That’s because spiritual concepts must be spiritually discerned.  Which is actually quite logical when you think about it!

    A good point, it serves me quite well these days.
    Actually, what a challenge to “talk” about.
    Hmm, guess I need your and anyone elses advice – PLEASE
     
    Spiritual is our intellect, our soul, our mind — all that what exists of us without the body. Logic does belong to it. The soul with logic got into maths and science, where others with analytic talents once joined-in. They were grouping…. somehwhere.
    Now lets jump with big steps forward: they were creating & building new stuff, the maximum is sky scrapers and airplanes/rockets I guess. They were the fathers of the creation of science and schools and technology.
    OK, that were big jumps. And it´s all about the materialistic stuff –> the results we can see.
    And I live in the Land of Technology. Our thinking is very much steered into that direction and the regular communication is controlled by it. I can “view” and listen to it quite well but I am not concerned or into their programming at all. There is no technology “for me”. Our country functions like a huge machine. So, I am out. I have no function. Instead, I am observing….. silently. Since ages.
     
    Back to spirituality:
    You talk about something that is ALSO spiritual but doesn´t end into  some materialistic stuff, right?
    I mean, not for the first step or purpose. (gosh, tough topic (TT)….)
    E.g. blessings is something immaterial. True. A challenge is as well. True.
    Means, if people (like me) get onto a stage of something we can not explain or see or have proof of or know how to handle “it”, it is tough to enter that stage and show courage for first experiences.
    Why? We would go there with no guts feeling. I have no guts feeling for blessings and what to do with it.  Crazy? Maybe – yes.
    It pulls me away from being spiritual and I become emotional. And: only unexperienced people ARE or turn emotional. We´re human – fact, no excuse. 😉
    Shows how systematic we already live and how in-spontanious we became.
     
    I really fight to get to the point that spiritual concepts must be spiritually discerned. But I don´t get there!?
    There is no bridge from where I stand right now – and I do understand the concept and message……
    ? ?
     
    May anyone lift me a little up, pls. ? ?   thanks – –

       @Leeloo
       All the answers are in the bible. They will reveal themselves to you as your faith grows stronger and if you ask for wisdom and decernment, it will be given to you, if you are a believer. If you are not, then read the bible anyway. God will find you where you are and bring you to the understanding. I don’t say this lightly. It all starts with BELIEVING. Faith will grow from there and your understanding will come along with graces that will blow your socks off.

         @maryellen514 interesting advice! Thanks maryellen, and yes:  I never read the bible. I did read what I was taught to read as a teenager but figured: this doesn´t help nor lead me anywhere in life.
        I believed to better belief in myself. This is where my logic and analyzing talent (I had no idea for over 40y. that I own such abilities) lead me through my life challenges. That “mental support” kept me cool and relaxed and it was helpful to forgive many people.
        ….but why not take your advice and add the bible to my books I will read soon?!
        thanks!!!
        hey, Happy Easter!! 🙂

        1. maryellen514 says:

           @Leeloo
           It will transform your life and the best part is, you can stop trying to figure it out. God will teach you as you read. BELIEVE and you will receive grace through faith. Don’t lose faith if the revelations do not come quickly. It’s all on God’s time and if you truly believe the words and promises in the bible, there are beautiful blessings ahead for you as well as peace and understanding. So well pleased you are going to start this journey. May god bless you with every step and every breath you take.

           @maryellen514 I´d really prefer to talk to “him” face2face and ask what this chaos was about with me and why he created me so extra ordinary unique that none can identifiy with me….  As a result so far, men turn away from me or treat me bad to cut me down (I seem to be mentally too strong – too many and tough challenges, I am no little sweet darling they all want & look4) but it is a great advice of you to get away with the bible from my own leadership-process (2 re-act on positive doublings which still appear) and instead let soemone else take over. Sounds quite relaxing for my brain!!!! 
          A quite inviting thought to step over – thou´ I know that “he” did not include me/my life in his holy book    (or those guys who wrote it)…..
          PLUS: he better dresses warm if this won´t work….  😉
           
          Now, lets leave it up to Randy´s BLOG-posts when we get together again and discuss new results about this topic…..  deal?     🙂

    Hi Randy
    While logical thinking surely has its place in this world, one of the things that has helped me most on my journey is to chuck it out the window in most instances. It has no place in creating our dream lives! 

    1. Leeloo says:

       @Kelli Cooper as much as logic built our surrounding to move in and out, it surely has nothing to do with dream fulfillment which needs our creativitiy – that´s a good point Kelli  🙂

    So FREAKING AMAZING! I just had a revelation about the world! It’s by being the light the we push away the darkness. That being the hope that we shine light on what could be. That we show a better way, that we create a better way. I have been and still need to work on being overly critical of myself and others. Though I get it from my mom. It will just need to be my issue that I will solve and maybe a gift I can use to solve for others. I find it truly amazing what you have done here Randy. You have undergone the development and had the courage to brave it alone when even the world seemed to be collapsing. Really Amazing! I can’t think of how much you have gone though though you continue to amaze me seriously. You are a true leader and I still have much to learn…a humble student…

    ” My ways are higher than your ways, my thoughts are higher than your thoughts”. I’m not so sure that ALL  the trials are intended to be understood until we leave this fallen world and return home. The darkest moments of my life were not understood by me until many years after they happened.  When you get hit with a huge trial, rest assured, there is a significant meaning that will reveal itself, in God’s time and if you are living and growing spiritually in the will of God, you can be guaranteed that your faith will be tested and will bring you blessings if you pass the test. The bigger the test, the bigger the blessing, has been my experience. I still shake my head when I look back with the understanding. In my wildest dreams, I could have no congured up some of the places my trials and blessings took me. And yes, reflecting back, I would go through it all over again to be made into who he has formed me into. If you are not living in the will of God, and God does read your heart, so don’t think you are fooling anyone but yourself if you are not, then only good will come from the trials and the trials will always come. If your life is a constant stuggle and you are not fullfilled, no matter what, then I would venture to say, that you are not living in the will of God. Faith is strengthened when you receive the grace and blessings, which are gifts from God, that no man can earn, lest no man should boast. It’s in these moments that you no longer question that there is a God and he is love and nothing he does for his children will ever bring them to defeat. Hope it does not take you half a lifetime to figure this out, as it did me. And yes, you will experience a peace, that surpasss’s all human understanding. There is nothing on earth that can give you this feeling, only God. He doesn’t love any of us any more or less, but he does reward righteousness. Hang on for the ride. The rewards will amaze you. Can’t even imagine what life will be like when we get to our eternal life, and I sure as hell, have the fear of God in me. I don’t know about you, but I sure want all the promises he has waiting for me and all those who believe in his son and follow his word. Hope to see you all in the kingdom of God when you leave this earth.

    My experience is that logic causes stress as you try to figure out why, listening to your higher self, inner wisdom your spiritual being serves you in a positive way when you TRUST

    Agreed Randy. The mind can only grasp certain concepts where as the spirit/energy of your soul can encompass all. It’s all about perspective.

    Absolutely Randy! I have learned that sometimes we do not see it in the moment. Each one of our challenges, when we confront them, makes us stronger and makes us grow as a person. We are never given anything we can not handle, it is all how we choose to react towards it that will enrich our lives. As we continue to face other challenges, we realize that we become the person we are because of our life experiences.

    Randy, I am sure you don’t remember me, but I told you way back how awesome your life story is. I have this friend who used to get stressed out and worried so much but just want to let you know he is okay now because of your positive-thinking prosperity program. We really appreciate what you do. Keep up the good work! Big hugs from us. We love you.

Love you! 🙂
