I love the timing of this, since Truth has been the theme here lately. It is a wonderful example shared on Mary’s blog of the importance of seeking, finding, and taking responsibility for truth. I hope it is at least as beneficial to you as it has been for me.
First, a quick summary of what I have been up to, then we return to “The Truth” with Chapter 9: God’s Definition of Love — Desiring and Seeking truth.
The next few chapters we will be focusing on truth. Here we look at what it does for us, why it is such a critical aspect of God’s definition of love, why it is essential in our soul’s growth, and what we need to do to bring ourselves into harmony with God’s definition of truth.
September 15, 2021 Update: This post contains a The Chapter 8 draft that has been re-written. If you want to go right to the updated draft of Chapter 8, see the more recent post.
I recently listened to a book by Gary Zukav called, Spiritual Partnership: The Journey to Authentic Power. It was published in 2010, but it hadn’t crossed my radar until now, probably because I rarely read “New Age” books anymore—they all seem pale in comparison to the completeness and level of love I find in Divine Truth. But this one was recommended by someone who seeks to know God in his heart and clearly gets the importance of owning one’s emotions and allowing them to be felt rather than avoided. So, I followed his suggestion and downloaded the book. Continue reading “Issues of Power”
At the Understanding God’s Loving Laws Assistance Group, one of the principles we learned about was that of Economy. Apparently, God wants us to create economically (efficiently) with our time, energy and resources (and rewards us for doing so). Economy makes sense; to be economical is respectful to the Creator of all that is, and loving to ourselves as well as others and our environment.

Winter is definitely over now, with warm spring winds and longer days drying things out even more on this already parched land. We are in extreme drought; I had only about an inch of rain this winter—no native spring-rain flowers, herbs or grasses even came up, and the only cliff roses that bloomed were the ones in my garden and swale areas, where more moisture was available—a good testament to creating swales! I imagine the bees were grateful for those. I intend to plant more of these hardy flowering perennials to provide early-spring food for the hungry pollinators–especially since rains are becoming more unpredictable and scarce.

Back in November, at the Understanding God’s Loving Laws Assistance Group, Jesus and Mary taught how important it is to align all of our creations with God’s Laws. They explained that God wants us to create everything in a loving way—efficiently and beautifully, with consideration to all living things. When it comes to building homes, God wants us to discover products that are beautiful, functional, efficient with time, energy and resources, do not harm any living things or the environment, do not degrade, and are even alive!

As I have described in previous posts, here at my high desert home, there is a seemingly endless list of things that need attention, fixing, doing, building, planting, creating etc to make it a truly safe, secure, comfortable, self-responsible, enjoyable and beautiful home, and the sheer magnitude of this list really get me down at times. I often feel overwhelmed. Continue reading “The Bully Inside”
I am on the 17th week of a 20 week Permaculture Designers Certification Course given by Geoff Lawton of Australia, a highly experienced and passionate teacher who has helped to transform some really degraded landscapes, even deserts. Continue reading “Hope for the Desert”
