Empty-headed and divine. Attached to all and all is one. Surely, if I am connected, then my words matter. If my words matter, then praying should accomplish something. It depends on who I pray to, and what I pray for, and how I pray.
I could spend my time praying for God to curse and hurt my enemies or spend my time praying for God to heal them and help them become less inclined to do things that make them my enemies. I could spend my time doing more things that make me less like my enemies.
Can you hear Jesus saying, come and follow Me?
Don’t go follow another human being who seems to have all of the answers. Don’t follow rituals or traditions. Be suspicious of Scripture in light of who you know the real Jesus to be.
Is Jesus rich? Of course, He is, His riches are unlimited. Therefore, he could afford to be utterly non-possessive of material things when he was here on earth. Can you afford to be utterly non-possessive of material things? Yes, you can. Nothing that society says that you own has to go with you the next time you move. You don’t have to play by the rules if breaking the rules just makes you seem a bit odd.
