It is a sad fact that many Christians sit in their churches every Sunday, feeling that they are the only people who will be saved. And I am in no way saying this in a mocking or disrespectful way. I am well aware that many Christians are very sincere and have pure hearts, and they are diligently pursuing the path that has been set before them by the orthodox churches. They truly have the best intentions, yet I must tell that their efforts cannot possibly lead to the desired result. In fact, what many of these people are doing is pursuing an impossible quest. They are running toward a goal that will forever keep eluding them. You might have seen drawings of a donkey pulling a cart, and from the cart is extended a rod, from the tip of which is a carrot hanging on a string. The carrot is dangling in front of the nose of the donkey, and the donkey keeps running toward the carrot, thinking that it will reach it any minute and be able to eat it. And in so doing, the donkey is pulling the cart. My beloved, it is an unfortunate fact that many religious people on this planet, not only Christians but certainly including many Christians, are like the donkey who is continually running toward the carrot without ever reaching it. They are running after the promise made by their religion, but they never attain the (spiritual) abundant life. And the reason for this is that they have come to accept a false image, a dualistic image, a graven image of God and what it takes to win their salvation. Therefore, they think they are running toward salvation, but what they are running toward is the idol of the external God. As long as they are running toward that idol, they are running away from the internal God. In so doing, they are pulling the cart, and the prince of this world and their mortal selves are sitting high on that cart, enjoying the ride. For they know that as long as people keep running toward the carrot of the external God, they will be secure in their position in the driver’s seat, from which they have people under complete control. — KIM MICHAELS #quotes

Aku selalu mencoba untuk bersikap baik dengannya walau aku tau bahwa aku takkan pernah bisa menjadi yang terbaik baginya sebab ia yang dahulu pernah mengisi hatinya hingga kini takkan pernah terganti meskipun kini ia bersamaku namun hatinya tetap untuk ia yang dahulu. Aku mencoba untuk selalu memahami sedihnya bahkan pada hari-hari dimana kita bersama cerita-cerita tentang masa ia bersama dahulu tak luput dari obrolannya. Aku seolah menemaninya menziarah kisahnya, kenangannya. Hingga pada akhirnya aku menemaninya menziarah tempat peristirahatan terakhir kekasih lamanya. Hari itu seolah aku adalah bukan sesiapa, hanya orang asing yang menjadi teman sedihnya.. Kini aku masih orang asing baginya, yang tak mampu menenangkan sedihnya, orang asing yang tak mampu membuat wajah nya sumringan begitu saja seperti kekasih lamanya, orang asing yang dimata nya biasa saja tapi ia tau bahwa aku begitu menyayanginya begitu mencintainya seperti kekasih lamanya walau caraku berbeda tapi ia begitu menghargainya.. Selamat mengulang hari bersamanya.. Semoga aku mampu menjadi dirinya Seseorang yang sederhana namun dimatamu begitu istimewa. -Rii __________________________________________________________________________________________ #tetesanpena #puisi #penulis #syair #lfl #fff #instagood #quotes #sepi #sajak #kataromantis #katacewe #pecandukisah #kisah #kopidanpuisi #kutipan #senja #cerita #instagoodnight #goodnight #sweetdreams #weekend #happyending #story #sad
