Happy Jedi day, anno Domini 2018 ~ May the 4th be with you!
On Jedi day we are reminded even if pop-culturally that each of us has a choice. The choice how we will invest our energy and thus spend our lives. Energy just is energy. You can thus choose whether you will approach the energy from the Jedi side, like a hero, or from the dark side, like a zero. Yes, yes, I get it is stereotypical, and don’t you dare roll your eyes at Me, young lady, or I will make sure you will just as well roll your ass at Me, squirming more over My knee!
It is not even a second too early, to dole out My tough love to you, Mine, not only as a form of disciplinary maintenance and #StrictMotivation to do better and good going forward, but also to put a full stop to the broken strategies that keep disturbing and eventually derailing your life from the path of the straight and narrow towards the ditch and into abysses of tragedy. It is time, to be an adult, which means to do the tough choices, and do them right, and show the inner discipline to keep doing what is right over what would be nicer or convenient. It is time to show behavioral integrity and be proactively engaged in your healing process.
It is time you give up those strategies you are using, that in the Jedi sense are associated with *the dark side of the force*, in terms of life or success training and (re-)parenting would be considered *unwanted behaviors* or in short, would be associated with #badgirl
While yes, you are a brat you also are a mom. Whether you like it or not, your responsibilities trump your conveniences and duties come before fun – unless and until you learn to deeply enjoy the #beautyofduty. You may now start to understand, why and how #diligenceisintelligence in My world because it allows you to functionally adult and thus reaping the privileges of adult life.
The childish short-sighted *to hell with consequences, I want what I want and I want it now!* #brattitude will get you no-where in life. Granted, you can indulge your mind with short-lived instant gratifications, which will ultimately lead to addictions and repetitive cycles of unhappiness. Because again you are making the choice to associate with *the dark side of the force* feeding into the field of the enemy. You are forfeiting the chance of a long-term happiness. You are sabotaging your success at life, you are undermining your ability for lasting satisfaction beyond the (illusion of) momentary bliss, promised by the fixes of the enemy. By avoiding the confrontation with potential frustrating experiences, you are getting thin-skinned thus making matters only worse and worse.
Instead of building your abilities and thus yourself and your tolerance for hardship up, becoming the victor in life, you are now settling for a situational victim. You are entering the vicious cycle´, and running blind-sighted into the trap the enemy lays out and coats with the “sweetness of deceit” or “deceitful sweetness” as it actually turns out: your selfsabotage makes you feel weaker and inapt to deal with stuff in a healthy way, thus you will resort to unhealthy ways, which will create more chaos while robbing you of the abiliies to deal with it, which creates a greater hunger for more of the benumbing, which prevents the growth necessary, and it is a not-marry go round, and spirals out of control getting ugly, and uglier still in a hurry.
The best way to break free from this vicious cycle of self-abuse is to not enter it at all. But as things are, that ship has sailed. So now, that you are being pummeled by life, for the bad choices taken, what you need to do is take a few steps back, and make a better decision next time. The adult decision. The option A. You have tried plan b (#brat) and look where it got you. Your life is a mess, not a success. Instead of the bliss, you have unveiled that the enemy is a trickster and a liar. The enemy deals in lies and half-truths, in omissions and other forms of deceit. And that is why we do not mingle with that minion of evil in the first place and why we force ourselves if necessary, to be better, braver and thus more immune to temptations of loop-holes and short-cuts that in the end only cut ourselves short of true happiness.
Stepping back hurts. It hurts the pride. It humbles us, and it is painful, but this humbling experience also strengthens us. No longer can we walk on our feet, the head held high. We are forced to our knees, as to get closer to the source and strengthen our roots. Before we can re-grow the new branch, the future stem strong enough to withstand the storms of life, and the outrages, the tempests, and the attacks of the enemy, we need to crouch back onto the ground, of which’s bosom we sprang. Here, humbled we refill our being with the strength and the force of life.
That very kneeling, painful as it is, serves to the future glory. Oh yes, you can endure hard things. Oh yes, you too can handle the pain, and you will grow a thicker skin, and your ability to endure. You will suffer at the moment, granted, and suffer a lot. It will not be times of pride nor convenience. They will be trying times and tiring times. They will be hard and maybe harsh. They will feel undoable, horrifying, excruciating at times, but they are to be endured and ideally to be embraced because they grow your backbone to become the brave soldier you need to be so that life and the enemy don’t bring you down eternally.
Avoiding pain does not work, because pain is inevitable as a factor of growth. Suffering, however, is optional and just a bad choice you are making. Since you lacked the self-discipline to adult on your own, I will, as your Protector provide the discipline from the outside. I will make sure you learn to endure the pain, for when endured well, it is momentary pain that too will pass. Your avoidance tactics are just a void-dance antics. They trap you on a track to misery and eventual tragedy. Since you chose the enemy over what is right and good, you have also chosen the consequences you now have coming. You will be working on divorcing yourself from the unholy communion with the unholy, the enemy, and all the senseless, repetitive suffering that it entails.
You will learn to get a glimpse into the true nature of the sugarcoated evil the enemy deals. That short-lived fake bliss will come with a kiss of the pain you are setting yourself up. We will sour and bitter up that quick fix, that loop-hole, that short-cut, that bypass you would choose in an idle attempt to circumvent the hardship growth holds. You will get a taste of the true nature of the unholy ally you prefer over the Principle of Love. Your avoidance attitude will come now with a painful price of its own. Giving you an idea of the senseless suffering you are setting yourself up for through your self-sabotage.
You will learn that there is no alternative to the straight and narrow path of the righteous. You will learn to embrace the blessings bestowed upon you, the chance to change and even the pain of growth. You will learn to embrace diligence as the intelligence it is. You will learn to embrace the beauty in duty. You will embrace the privileges of being a responsible adult and a reliable member of society, an upstanding, law-abiding citizen, serving in humbleness and gratitude, working towards the perpetual bliss of true freedom and true happiness under God, in the Name of LOVE. And, so help Me God, I will lead your way, step by step.
We do not bow down to the temptations of evil, its false promises of power through manipulation, lies, deceit, and slavery to the powers of darkness. We, like the Jedi, choose to grow from within. We choose to defy the temptations of suppressing and oppressing, aggressing and depressing. We do not succumb to the dark side of the force, no matter what sweet promise it may make. We see through its fog of lies and deceptions. For we are made of light to illuminate the darkness like torches, like lightsabers. For we are born from the Great Origin, and destined to be vessels of the very energy, in resonance with God’s plan.
May the Force be with you.
Momentary bliss is the key to an abyss. The hardship of growth is an investment beyond now, beyond doubt into success and perpetual happiness. #StrictMotivation #wejustgetbetter
