Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

Hopefully your enjoying the summer season and if your down under in the oceanic region your winter period. Today's trio of "Jewels of Truth" statements will cover the topics of: wonder, forgiveness, and moderation. Besides a trio of quotations from other contributors that have sparked my earnest thoughts.

Enjoy and be well.

-----------------------------------

902) Where there is wonder there is the eye of a child filled with splendid notions. Wonder is for those who have curious hearts and a mind filled with awe. Wonder can reveal many beautiful things regarding a person, no matter their age in this life. From young to old, those who behold wonder in their hearts shall reveal for the rest of us the glories of creation. Be it the true to the fanciful that gives delight to those open enough to receive such joy. Where there is "Wonder" there is an abundant heart willingly to listen and share the beauties discovered all around him or her. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


903) Forgiveness is medicine for the heart of the giver and receiver. If there is no receiver to be had than the Holy Spirit of God shall stand in there place. To help comfort and aid the giver of forgiveness. Forgiveness is an elixir of life allowing: slurs, hates, and other maladies of the heart to be released. So as to re-nourish with love a person's spirit. Forgiveness brings harmony and balance as a form of spiritual atonement. It shall benefit more the giver of forgiveness than the receiver, for that is its intended purpose. So as to soothe a splintered ego. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


904) Moderation is the next best achievement in this life in regards to perfection. For mortals there is no true perfection, there may be a foolish attempt to attain perfection as a mortal carnal and spiritual being. But such a paradox forbids perfection to occur, such was the intended purpose of living in this realm of creation.

Moderation allows for all things excellent to be attainable. Attainable in such a way as to forge open the good or evil as it is intended. Moderation has both good (Light) and evil (Darkness) in such a realm of pluralistic duality. All paths that lead back to God must travel via moderation so as to pass through the eye of the needle. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
