We all live in bubbles now. How safe is yours?
Actually we live in an unlimited “Bubble” of safety and only Love.
The word “bubble” is well known in this Global Corona Virus Pandemic as a safe place to live and doing the things you want to do, i.e., professional basketball players – they protect themselves from external sources that would interfere with being able to play basketball.
I use the word ‘bubble” in this article for our Creator, all-loving God, “All there is,” our safe and Divine orderly Cosmos, all beyond our understanding and limitless.
Our “limited” life is living in faith in a smaller “bubble,” while at the same time living within the larger “endless Bubble” (represented by the my choice of an image with the bubble inside a bubble.)
Many of us have learned that we are not our body but spirit. This part of us lives forever, before we were born and after death of our body.
I call our eternal part of us, our soul, our Inner Child. Our Inner Child is our connection with our unlimited “Bubble.”
Wouldn’t you agree that “bubble” is a wonderful metaphor for God and all the other names we have for the heavenly state of mind?
Faith and connection with the unlimited “Bubble” makes me feel good and my life becomes meaningful. This belief truly makes me happier.
My Fearful Life
I am speaking from experience of a fifty-year chaotic and fearful life which I was able to gradually turn into my content life now at 80 years of age. Praise the Lord!
I’ll retell my story as long as I live to pass the information to younger generations so you can have a happier life on Earth. You see I finally found out why I always felt alone, unhappy, was addicted to alcohol and was unable to have long-lasting loving relationships.
I had a “recall” of child abuse, was diagnosed with Complex PTSD.
My recovery process led me on to a spiritual path i.e., discovered my unlimited “Bubble.”
The main process I used was conversations with my physical inner child who I never acknowledged for her suffering. My little girl stuffed all pain and carried hurts into adulthood.
In my talks with my little girl, I discovered my Inner Spirit. It took two years, but it was worth it. Slowly my faith grew. I learned more about the teachings of Christ.
From His Wisdom I began to believe in the visible and invisible, the physical and metaphysical. Also, that our soul lives forever.
In addition, Christ taught that everything that happens, happens for a reason. If it “seems” bad to us it may be an opportunity for our soul to grow.
Growing is loving ourselves and one another.
Forgiveness is another biggie to make that happen! That’s how we love the big “Bubble” and that is our purpose in the little “bubble”.
Yes, dear readers, even though we don’t know our expansive, eternal “Bubble,” Christ said we are One with IT.
Living in our life’s “bubble” and knowing we connect with the “All there Is Bubble” means we are together, safe, never alone and loved.
You too can have more Inner Peace, by believing that Christ said, “I AM with you always, in all ways forever.”
Appreciate yourself and be happy! Don’t you agree, we are happy children, playing in the small and big “Bubble” forever.
If you have difficulties with this, please recite the Serenity Prayer used by Alcoholics Anonymous.
I include it here with its other verses rarely read.
The Full Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make things right
If I surrender to His Will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
