Burdens of a Pilgrim

This post originates from an email conversation Denita had with someone recently. Some of the things brought up have been swimming around in my mind since and their implications bring me to a point where the burden cannot be caried silently anymore.

Brothers and sisters, as Children of God, we are called to follow in the steps of our Big Brother Jesus. What burdend Him, should also weigh heavy upon our hearts. What was His overarching goal in His incarnation? It was to bring glory to His Father, who through adoption, is now our Father.

As children of the Father, should we not seek the same as our Brother?

What did our Brother do in His ministry to bring glory to our Father? Seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10).

Brothers and sisters, that is what I seek to do with this post.

Our Father is jealous of our love for Him, He will share it with no other, but I fear that there are many out there who claim to love our Lord and Saviour Jesus, but in fact are splitting their love and loyalties. This splitting comes in a way that they are blinded to, something that they probably do not realize.

Lord, please open their eyes (and do not let me close my eyes to this fact)!

Many out there have proclaimed, either out loud, or in their hearts only, that they love Jesus, but do not feel the same thing towards the Father. That they love Jesus, but have problems with loving the God of the Old Testament.

Brothers and sisters, know this if you feel this way...

You are walking in sin and are flirting with heresy.

God the Father does not change (Psalms 102, Numbers 23:19, James 1:17, Malachi 3:6)
. Jesus Christ does not change (Hebrews 13:8). Jesus is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature (Hebrews 1), when asked "show us the Father" He replied "Whoever has seen me has seen the Father." (John 14)

Brother and sister, when you say that you love Jesus, but not the God of the Old Testament, you are not loving the Jesus of the Bible, you are worshiping a Jesus of your own making because "
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him." (1 John 5:1)

If you cannot love the Father, you cannot say in truth that "Jesus is the Christ". It is only in the love of the Father you can proclaim this in truth by the Spirit, for the Spirit is sent by Jesus, from the Father (John 15:26).

Salvation only comes through faith in the Jesus of the Bible. That Jesus was, "the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1) If I was to name my son Jesus, I cannot be saved by placing my faith in him...

If Jesus is God, then you cannot love Jesus, but not the God of the Old Testament, for they are one in union (John 14:11).

Please brothers and sisters, hear this truth and repent if you find your heart pointed in this direction.

Swami Vivekananda advocated the doctrine of the "Oneness of man. On the
other hand Baba not only taught the oneness of man but also the oneness
of God. He used to preach that 'Sri Ram' of Hindu and 'Rahim' of Muslims
are different manifestations of the One and Only Supreme Being.

And yet expecting that the government---rather than individuals---should always come up with the solutions to society's ills may have made us less self reliant, undermining our Independence and self-sufficiency.

It's not Rocket Sallet... until it is.

Vegetables and organ meats shared a split personality for the Pilgrims in the 17th century. On the one hand, they're dainty morsels, served with verve and flair on the noblest of tables; on the other hand, they're the bits that are left to serve the poorest of the poor. Let's save offal for another day - there's a great haggis controversy bubbling up in food history circles...I'll keep you posted. But back to vegetables.

I'm sure you all remember back to the third grade when you learned that the natural world is divided into animal, mineral and vegetable. And that's exactly what a vegetable was in the 17th century - that whole large category of trees and vines and shrubs and grains and shrubs and reeds and cetera - not just the plants you grow for your plate (like at the first Thanksgiving).

I had to read this for my degree. I think it makes him sink in the Slough of Despond. It also makes him meet Goodwill, who shows him how to get to the place of deliverance, where he loses the burden (because he's become a Christian. The most obvious and boring allegory I have ever read.

If you leave your house to a different location to which you are traveling as tourists or pilgrims? Phil Cousineau in his book The Art of Pilgrimage says: "The difference between pilgrims and tourists, the intent of the attention, the quality of curiosity." I agree with his statement. It has been my experience when I travel I see things that I expect to see, depending on my intentions were and I focus my attention. Pilgrim tourism and travel with different intentions, neither one is right or wrong. Everyone has come an expectation for a. A tourist travels for pleasure. A pilgrimage to a sacred place as an act of devotion and enlightenment.

Tibetan religious literature can be separated into two types of books: those that contain the teachings of Buddhism written in analytical form and technique that are meant for those who have proper training in logic and philosophy, while the other books contain the Dharma and written in a way that most people realize. It also includes Tibetan poetry, consisting of songs and spiritual insights.

One of the most celebrated poets in Tibetan spiritual field of vision is Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdröl. Shabkar is considered the greatest after yogic master Milarepa. Like Milarepa, Shabkar also spent most of his life as a wandering pilgrim using his songs as a means of spiritual teachings. Her spiritual songs were among the most precious in Tibetan poetry.

The wandering life of the Pilgrim

Shabkar born and raised in Amdo, Tibet Northeast. He showed affection meditative life at an early age. Even the games we played were related to the teachings of Buddha. He also expressed interest in Tibetan poetry at age seven. The moment you complete twenty-one years old, he completed a retreat. Here, he recited the mantra of Manjushri ten million times. This led him to experience signs and auspicious dream to pursue his meditative life.

Shabkar mother wanted to marry. Although loved and respected his parents, he defied his request and continued his religious desire. He left the house and continued his religious vocation. At age 21, received full monastic ordination and started his pilgrimage at the age of 25. If asked Yogi as a homeless, taking every opportunity to teach people who knew - the bands for the animals. Finally, he returned to his homeland, where he spent his last years the promotion of peace, teaching his disciples and meditating.
