Loving broken people

We cannot exempt ourselves from the world

while we are in the world,

and while we are in it

it is our lot to love broken men.

Yet how can we do it

when we are ourselves are broken,

 and need to be assured

that we are loved

that we are accepted

for being the broken people that we are.

We cannot love a person

with an all accepting, transcending and encompassing love

without being hurt somewhat,

without being disappointed,

without being failed

of our expectations.

We cannot love

without being broken,

yet we cannot continue in love

without being stronger

than our brokenness.

It is only in Jesus

where we can find healing and strength

so as to continue in this love,

so as to continue suffering again and again

yet rise again and again

in a love that is far above

any expectations,

in a love that does not retreat

from any hurt

or any frustration,

but in a love that dares to dare

in a love that dares to dream

in a love

that never ever fails!

    Well, I agree that many life experiences can be heartbreaking, and that divine love is the ultimate healing source. But I don’t believe that Jesus is the only guide to the ultimate source of divine love. There are multiple cultures on this planet and they each have a spiritual tradition with significant spiritual figures that have historically functioned as guides to take the broken to the healing of divine love. Jesus was certainly one of them, but not the only one. We have such a guide available to us incarnate at this time. I am referring to Dr. Zhi Gang Sha. He is a miraculous healer, same as Jesus. And a profound spiritual teacher too. His latest book Soul Wisdom is about how to develop the ability to speak soul language and thru it become able to personally converse not only with your own soul, but with the spiritual realm more broadly. This is an immense empowerment and if we take the opportunity to develop this skill we will find our own path to the divine love that heals all brokenness.

    I know there are many earthly wise people to learn from, but only one man walked the earth proclaiming he was the son of God, and the only way to God. Many can say he was a wise prophet, or teacher, and no more, however that would make him a liar and a crazy man for claiming to be God’s son. I chose to believe. That means instead of finding my own way inside my own soul, that I admit that I am incomplete without Him, and with Him can overcome anything. I surrender to His guidance in order to win. I die each day in order that I may live. In learning to do so in humility, I have overcome addiction, and the loss of my wife and daughter, and still rise each day in gratitude and praise of our awesome God. Praise be to the Prince of Peace. Learn from wise people here on earth, but pray to our glorious God for guidance, and healing, and you will find peace. It is His promise. Amen.
