Lately God has been showing me clear signs to be with a man that I actually do like very much. I resist because he is not my ideal mate. I would do anything for God when the time comes, but for now my thoughts of egotistic separation from this guy is causing repercussions. I feel as if I am a burden to everyone I talk to because I'm no longer focused on helping people but having them identify me as someone with worth. I do want to be with him, I just don't respect what I want. It's somehow better to me to be perfect than to be loved. I must be confused. Do you have any advice?
Also, does the Devil really exist? Does God feel emotions? Why does He kill people and condemned women to be dominated by their husbands in the bible? Thank you—Kassidy
As always, I love your insightful questions. A few thoughts...
"I would do anything for God when the times comes..." might be reframed to be the time is always here, now... there's not future tense on God/Divine/All/One.
Perfection is not the point... we are here for soul growth, for the opening of our human hearts... not for perfect looks, money, grades, achievements, behavior and so on. We're here to grow as souls having a human experience... so, go out there and get the human experiences that will open your heart, and help you to become a more compassionate and loving —not perfect—person.
It is best to love and be loved. Both together. Perfection is overrated and not worth your time or attention.
The devil exists for those who believe in negative thought and allow it into their lives; for many, hell is their current life.
Does God feel emotions—Divine/One/All is beyond emotions, but we are able to get closer to this enlightened energy of love through our emotions and via the human heart.
Why does he kill people? I don't know why people die in wars and natural disasters and from illnesses. Some say it is the soul's agreement. It is very hard to deal with; so much pain.
Women were dominated by their husbands in the Bible because it was a different time and culture; we've evolved or are learning to evolve past that now. Equality means for all... race, gender, orientation, culture, age, etc.
