We should all lighten up a bit regarding life and God. Stop being scared of ‎God.‎

We grow up the day we have a good laugh at ourselves.‎


Our soul is joy. Joy is the soul. To be joyful we need to put joy in our mind. Our ‎heart is the corridor between our soul and our mind. The joy in our soul needs ‎to move through our heart and into our mind. Feelings are in our heart. We ‎need to have an open mind for the feelings to enter the mind.‎


An open mind allows the feelings to be expressed, to move from the heart, to ‎be pushed out from the heart. Then our heart becomes a free-flowing channel ‎of life’s energy.‎


Like turning a thermostat from cold to hot, we can speed up the vibrations of ‎life’s energy from sadness to joy.‎


Joy is in us. Yet, it can unfold only when you let it out. You can let it out inside ‎you, by helping another person to feel it. This is simple: with a smile, a ‎compliment, a loving glance, or by making love. These devices can release joy ‎in another person. Release the joy that is inside another person, and you ‎release the joy in you. Do it with a song, a dance, art work, or with holding of ‎hands.‎


Hold the space of safety for people to be themselves.‎


The moment you decide to release the joy in the heart of another, you will ‎know how to do so.‎


Do your true mission in life. When you are not afraid to die, you are not afraid ‎to live. Death does not exist.‎

God’s joy is to be One with us, and our greatest joy is to know this.‎


God is always with us. When we call God we merely elevate our awareness of ‎God.‎

God speaks to us when we have a hunch about something, when we receive ‎an offer to end bad feeling, to cease a conflict, to return the smile of a stranger, ‎to look up at the beauty of the sky, to behold the beauty of the flowers. Yet, ‎when we do not do all these – we turn down God’s call.‎

God talks to us in that just-the-right book that we happen to read, in just-the-‎right movie we happened to see. If we think that all these are coincidences, ‎then we turn down God’s invitation.‎


Experiences of love in our life time, are temporary experiences. But Love itself ‎is eternal. We love only here-and-now that part of love that is actually ‎everywhere-always.‎


Sex experiences are also temporary and short-lived. Yet, this does not mean ‎that they are meaningless. They are periodical yet joyful. The love between ‎people is forever. It’s expression, like sex, is periodical, temporary, short-lived. ‎Still, this short-lived does not mean it is less.‎


To be fully loving we should be fully natural.‎


Punishments teach little. Consequences are a better teacher. Punishments are ‎artificially created outcomes. Consequences are naturally occurring outcomes.‎


Punishments come from outside, from one person inflicting on another. ‎Consequences come from inside, from one’s own actions, thus they teach us ‎better.‎

We teach our children that if they do not behave, we withhold our love to them. ‎By giving and withholding our love, we regulate and control our children’s ‎behaviours.‎

God will not do that.‎

The Lines of God - by Gil Dekel

'The Lines of God' - by Gil Dekel.


Compassion is the expression of love to the other person, in times where they ‎made choices that you think are poor.‎


Always ask, “What would love do now?” When you ask this question at any ‎situation, you will know instantly what to do. You will be given the answer. You ‎are the answer, and asking brings forth that part of you.‎


When something happens, say “God bless it”, not “God dammit”. Let God bless ‎it, thus change what you do not like about it. To bless is to give something ‎energies, highest thoughts. To change a “bad” thing, we need to bless it, to ‎give it energies and our best thoughts.‎


We change nothing by condemning. By condemning we make things repeat. ‎Condemning is judging. We may refuse a thing and choose something else. ‎Yet, we do not need to judge it. A choice to change something does not always ‎have to come out of anger. The more we are angry, the less we are effective in ‎changing things.‎


We need no anger to justify an end of relationships. We can simply say, “I am ‎complete. This relationship no longer serves me”. Bless all, for all is a gift to ‎you. All people are angels, thus be totally grateful.‎


To wonder is to produce a wonder.‎


We have nothing to lose by lifting up a fellow human being, even if they walk ‎all over the same territory, covering the same ground, doing before us what we ‎ourselves wanted to do. Benefits are mutual.‎


We all seek the truth. If you tell anecdotes just to tell anecdotes, then they will ‎have a limited value. But if you describe experiences in your life in order to ‎share what you have learned from them, then they become invaluable.‎


Never give up Who You Are.‎


Where life is hard, people abide the code of: Help Each Other. People who live ‎in the street will help others. Yet, many people who live under a roof, will not ‎help when seeing someone in need.‎


When you live in the street and just try to keep warm and dry, you do not worry ‎over a phone bill, or a job promotion, or asking what you will do the rest of your ‎life.‎


Our survival is assured, thus we need not compete or worry about which one of ‎us is ‘better’. We need not destroy others to ensure that we will have enough.‎


We are all One.‎

There is enough.‎

There is nothing that we have to do.‎

We are all One – live the truth that everyone and everything is an extension of ‎you. Treat all as part of you.‎


We make stereotypes to justify our treatment of each other.‎
