Does the Book of Revelation Mesh with Jesus’ Teachings? — Carolyne Cathey

Quote Posted on

Warning: My beliefs as guided by Jesus my Spiritual Mentor might be considered by some as heretical. This is where courage and faith comes in, when what the Divine communicates is the opposite of what many others believe as truth. What is my reaction to the Book of Revelation claim that Jesus will come again […]

      Thank you, we’re doing good. Blessed. A bit rebellious on not supposed to be attending church on Easter Sunday. But rebellious enough? We’ll see

      How are you doing through all of this? Still determined for the best life possible for you? Home? Work? Daughter?

    That’s a tough decision. It’s been ups and downs I’m talking to my daughter more and getting alone with her mother. I’m mostly positive and watch my tongue. If it’s not something positive or nice then I won’t say it. I try to honestly look and try empathy or look at others and see if I’d like that, but I’ve failed too and have been rude to my mother. I have resentments towards her. I’ve been a fucking dick and I’ve made her cry. That makes me feel like shit and I can’t imagine what she’s feeling besides me being a terrible son. As for work. I’m still working but not as an Emt due to the virus. Works day by day and how it is. I’m still talking to members from aa and church and seeing a counselor. Learning to save and knocking out bills. I challenge myself when I do get upset. It’s me vs me and seeing why I get upset. My insecurities and mindset. Hope all is well

      So glad to hear from you. You are moving forward, which is the perfect direction. Rarely is improvement accomplished without some back steps and mistakes along the way. What you are doing is not easy, but with determination, doable. You can and are doing this.

      As to your mother, apologize. Might she have contributed to your issues when you were a child? Be honest with her. Open your heart. Tell her about your resentments, and why, and see if you can work together to release them, and hers, too. Tell her you are trying but that sometimes you get triggered and mess up. Ask for her understanding and her prayers. See what happens.

      You said you try empathy. What does that mean? Is it pretend or real? In those instances, are you treating others the way you want to be treated? What happens when you are empathetic, both for you and others?

      The times we are experiencing can make your transition more difficult. That means, if possible, get out in nature as much as possible. Hike. Listen to nature music. And most important, PRAY. PRAY. PRAY. All things are possible with God.

      I believe in you. Jesus believes in you. Ask him for help, guidance and inner peace.

      You and millions of people, including me. In fact, I’ve been struggling with anger, shocked at how easily people gained control and decimated our freedom through fear, guilt and threats. Personally, I’ve had enough. The millions of lives that have been damaged from loss of income must be restored. All lives matter. We must shift from living in fear to living in faith. Living means taking taking calculated and often bold risks.

    How do we the people do that? Of course you have protest going on and I can see how the media played a big part. How come you’ve been angry? Is it just that?

    As for empathetic I guess I really try to put myself in their shoes and see how I’d feel if that was done to me. Not sure if that is what empathy is. I can see why people react the way they act but it’s hard to feel that at times. I’m not sure if it’s real or not but it’s a different feeling/state of mind that I haven’t experienced. I’ve also been trying to change my thinking with black and white and see the good and bad in others. I’m more accepting and see that people have there own “normal” actions and that’s where they come from even if it’s different from my normal. When I think before I act. It helps and I don’t react as I use to and sometimes I don’t know how to react and I’ll be quiet in the moment. Like I said prior it’s a raw feeling and I haven’t felt that before. I’ve been digging into sociopathy and I guess what drives me to wanting a life different from that is my daughter saying that I’m her best friend. She makes me happy and I do worry about her. I don’t want to be the man I am. She deserves better. My whole family does. I owe it to myself.

      What you expressed in this post is heart-warming. It’s truly beautiful. I sense hardened layers of you dissolving to expose the wonderful you that you really are.

      What your daughter expressed? WOW. A treasure. She deserves your best. I believe that is what you are striving to offer her. She sees in you what you might not yet see in yourself.

      By the way, I’m proud of you for continuing AA and your anger management counseling.

      You are expanding into the real, magnificent you faster than expected. Good job. To celebrate, when possible, maybe you could bring your daughter some flowers and take her to do something she would enjoy. Maybe even some flowers for your mom when times allow.

      Thanks for your honest insight.

        I will thanks for the positive encouraging words. Today was a good day. Nothing crazy but since I live with my parents I’m trying to be more helpful and less self absorbed and defensive. I asked her to teach me how to cook. I cook my own things but she cooks the traditional Mexican food. Been reading the Bible more as well and it’s been good. My biggest struggle lately is trust with others and also struggling with porn. My daughter lives in another state but she could have a genetic immune disorder. Just like her mother. So we are postponing the trip til further notice. How was your day? How’s all this impacted you?
