The Possible Impossible, A Conversation With God

Question:

Oh God, I feel so imperfect, my fall so great, there is no possible way for me to become whole again; is this true?

Answer:

As I am the creator of all things, all things are possible.  However, within the infinite possibilities in my creation of all things, even for me, there are some things that are impossible.

For as I am the creator of all things and as you are a creation from me, of me and by me, you are not now, nor have you ever been, nor shall you ever be anything less than a perfect creation from me; to be anything less than a perfect creation from me would be impossible.

Question:

Oh God, my pain and sufferings are so great, is it possible that I have lost your love?

Answer:

All things that are created by me and through me are only created out of love.  And as I am the creator of all things, then all things must be created from love and nothing, nothing is without my love.

Therefore, you are not now, nor have you ever been, nor shall you ever be anything less than a perfect creation from my love; to have anything less than my complete and unconditional love for you would be impossible.

Question:

Oh God, I feel that my time is near and I am so afraid, what shall I do? 

Answer:

I am before the concept of time, I am before the creation of time and I am the creator of time.  I am before the concept of ‘before’ and there is no ‘before’ outside of me for I am eternal.

And as I am eternal and as you are a creation from my eternal love, you are not now, nor have you ever been, nor shall you ever be anything less than eternal; that you could ever cease to exist to be, would be impossible.

In your corporeal form, your questions about me are warranted, your mysteries about me are expected, but they are unnecessary, for if you seek from deep within your heart and not from your physical mind you will already know my answers.

For if you fear death, if you question my eternal, absolute and unconditional love for you, if you do not see my perfection in you, then you have fallen into a state of sin.

And there is but one sin that you are challenged to let go of, there is but one sin that you must stop believing in and give creation to, there is but one sin from which all other sins are derived and this sin is that you believe and thus fear that I do not love you.

You have forgotten that you are my perfect creation.
You have forgotten that you are created from my perfect and unconditional love.
You have forgotten that my perfect and unconditional love for you is eternal and that you are eternal.

And because you have forgotten, you have allowed your instinct, you have allowed your intuition, and you have allowed your heart to create the delusion that you are somehow separated from me.

But, need I remind you that you are not now, nor have you ever been, nor shall you ever be separated from me.  As you are my creation, my creation from perfection, my creation from my infinite, unquestionable, undeniable, indefinable, eternal love for you, that you could ever be separated from me, is impossible.

While you are here in your corporeal form

  • bound by the confines of space and time
  • bound by the emotions of love and hate
  • bound by the vicissitudes of peace and war
  • bound by the raptures of joy and pain

While you are here in your corporeal form there is only one thing you need to do; for you have but one task, you have but one mission, you have but one purpose in your life; it is that you let go of your fear, hold on to your faith, renew your strength and find your way back to me.

And the only thing you need to do to find your way back to me is to remember that you are my perfect creation, remember that you are created out of my perfect and unconditional love and remember that my perfect and unconditional love for you is eternal.

And the only thing you need to do to repent, to turn back to, to remember my perfect, unconditional and eternal love for you, is simply to be still and know that I am God; stand still and feel the presence of my salvation.

For in the stillness of my presence there is only now, and in the stillness of my now there is no regret of the past, there is no anxiety of the future, there simply is the oneness with me.

It is here in my now that you will let go of your fear.
It is here in my now that you will find my peace.
It is here in my now that you will experience joy unthinkable.
It is here in my now that you will see my and your perfection.
It is here in my now that you will feel and know my eternal love for you.

For you are now, have always been and forever shall be, one with me.  For you to not be forever one with me would be impossible!

51 A Year In Review

To day, I have nothing but gratitude in my heart. Last year, year 51, was a very challenging year:

It was a year of having my faith-tested daily
It was a year of exhaustion and very little sleep
It was a year of unprecedented uncertainty
It was a year of intense loneliness, letting go and reaching closure
It was a year of powerful cleansing and physical rehabilitation
It was a year of painful and honest self-reflection
It was a year of forgiving others but most of all, forgiving myself
It was a year of many high moments and many low ones
It was a year of much joy and just as much sorrow
It was a year of deep meditation and learning how to be still
It was a year of climbing many mountains mentally, physically and spiritually
It was a year of constant reminders that I was living in the no longer but the not yet

Hycel51_06_26_2016

It has been a year of massive spiritual, mental and physical transition
It has been a year of letting go of my past and looking to my future
It has been a year of closing old doors and watching hundreds of new doors open

It has been a year of learning how to live in the present moment
It has been a year of witnessing the seemingly impossible, made possible
It has been a year of watching my thoughts being brought to fruition and manifested into physical form

It has been a year of observing the “no longer” fade into darkness and seeing the “not yet” shimmering in the light at the end of the tunnel

It has been a year of new business relationships and new friendships that have spanned the globe, from India to Pakistan, Russia, Romania and the Philippines

It has been a year that I chose both Villanova to win the college national championship and the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the NBA finals. Dude!

It has been a year of communicating with my father; for when I was at my weakest moment, when my soul and my strength were taxed to their very limit, when I thought I just couldn’t make it any further, I felt him reach out and touch me on my shoulder and in his low, melodious voice say to me, “Buddy! Don’t give up! Keep the faith! Keep fighting the good fight! You’re almost there!”

It has been a year of waking up each morning, stepping out on faith and watching the Universe work miracles; for “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen”.

In essence, it has been a wonderful, beautiful and unbelievable year.

My Cup Runneth Over.

Living My Dad’s Faith & Freedom

I hit a newIMAG0811_1 personal best yesterday reaching 48.6 MPH descending down the mountain, shattering my old record of 46.1 MPH by 2.5 MPH. If dad were physically here, I would have called him to tell him the news and he would have said, ‘Grates Got Man! That’s awesome!’ And that’s all I would have needed to hear him say to make my day.

In light of the events over this past week, he would have been very proud because he taught me and others to be defiant, not to cower in the face of tragedy, not to fear in the presence of evil but to choose love in the face of hate and forgiveness instead of holding on to anger for what this lost soul has done.

Holding onto fear and hate weakens all of us; choosing love and forgiveness strengthens all of us.

Dad would say, now is the time to be emboldened and to be our very best. Nine people gave their lives being their very best; we should follow their lead in being unapologetic in our moral and ethical convictions, being in community with each other and to know that when we are severely spiritually challenged to be steadfast and assured in our faith and freedom.

Happy Father’s day Old Man,
Love Son.

Dear Dad

Dear Dad,

I watched the sun rise this morning and I was wondering if you were standing next to me watching it too?

Or were you viewing the earth from a distance, watching it slowly twirl like a tiny Christmas ornament nestled within the fabric of space, falling gently around the sun?

Did you dance on the moon, skip gleefully across the surface of Mars, peer beneath the clouds above Jupiter and bathe playfully in the rings of Saturn?

Did you hear a cacophony of galactic noises and sounds resonating like a sweet and soft melodious jingle?

Did you sing a new song that roared like the thunder of a thousand colliding asteroids?

Did you become huge, vast and so immeasurable you could hold the planets of our solar system in the palm of your hand?

Did you clap your hands and, through its immense energy, give birth to a brand new sun?

And with a swath of your fingers, did you gently caress the stars of the Milky Way?

Did you take wing and screech across the heavens and the universe ten thousand times faster than a photon, weaving in, out and through an infinite array of galaxies, engulfing and consuming them all in an instant with the fullness and completeness of your being?

Did you transcend space and time?  Can you contemplate all things in a single thought? Is there life on other planets?  Will we meet again?

This morning I watched the sun rise, all the while trying to fathom a world without you in it.  I was wondering if you were standing next to me watching it too?

Love,
Son
