Instead Of A Belief Have Better An Idea
Yesterday, I mentioned that one of my favorite movies is, Dogma. In the movie, Chris Rock plays Jesus’ black disciple that did not make it into the Book. He comes back from the dead to help a rag-tag team accomplish a very important mission of preventing two errant angels from unraveling the fabric of existence. One of his best lines, I think, is about having few beliefs but mostly ideas because ideas are easy to change.
We have so many great ideas that come to mind and any one or many of them we could make reality in our lives buy adding just a little action to those ideas. It is my opinion one of the things that hinders us most in doing just that is our “self-limiting” beliefs that we or others usually preface by, “You can’t do that because…” One of the
more correct things the Apostle Paul ever wrote, and contrary to the hype, he did not get it all right nor does the book his writings are contained in, nor any of the so called Holy books, because men never get it entirely right, women either. Making mistakes and getting things a bit off is what we do best and most consistently. But one phrase in particular that Paul got spot on was this, “I can do all things through Christ (Or the Christ principle) that helps me.”
What is Christ or the Christ Principle? Jesus asked the boys a couple of questions once. He first asked whom do men say that I am? They replied some say, “Elijah, Elias, or one of the prophets.” Then Jesus asked the guys, “Whom do you say that I am?” Then Peter pipped up, always quicker to speak than to think like most of us, but He got it right. He said succinctly, “You are the Christ, the son of the living God.” But the truth of that seems to get overshadowed by Jesus further remarks about building some sort of church is another clear statement that Jesus made to the boys and to all of us, I think, namely this, “As I am (I Am is God’s name, by the way) so are you in the world.” Christ means “Annointed”, Royal. Kings and queens can do whatever pleases them i.e. – we can do anything, everything we think because of who we are.
I Believe In You
Some people’s ideas get stunted, shunted, because of a belief in “church” Don Williams in his song, “I Believe In You”, sang, “I don’t believe that heaven waits for only those that congregate…but I believe in love, I believe in you.” I suppose it seems important what we believe but I think it is way more important than any beliefs, right or wrong, that we have a free flow of ideas and that we act on the better, the best ones, and manifest them in our lives and in the lives of others.
My advice, as if any one needs it or would take it, is to hold our beliefs if we must hold them at all, lightly, and be ready to discard any that are no longer serving us but to let those better and especially best ideas flow and grow by putting feet on them. You and I can be or do anything we want by virtue not of anyone’s sacrifice or building of a church, temple, mosque, or shrine but by virtue of the royal blood that flows through our spirits, our hearts, and our minds.
Good day, and night you princesses and princes of the Universe.
