Break Your Chains

“Break Your Chains”

I’ve never been much of a religion buff. I’m still not, but I do consider myself a spiritualist — someone who lives, breathes, acts, sees, hears, smells and feels through my heart. There’s a 9th Commandment and it decrees, “Thou shalt not bear false witness!” And it’s my personal opinion that this is where a big part of where our civilization and culture is living today.

We currently bear false witness.

Here are the telltale signs of one who bears false witness, per the Bible. Haughty eyes and beady eyes! A lying tongue. Hands that shed innocent blood. A heart that devises wicked plans. Feet that make haste to run to evil. A false witness who breathes in lies and out even more lies. One who sows discord amongst their brothers and sisters? If you see someone like this — if it looks and acts and smells like a pig — trust me, it’s a pig!

This commandment against false testimony is a natural consequence to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” This fundamental lack of faith in the God within in you, per the 10 Commandments, undermines the foundation of your covenant with God. So think about that the next time you do something that isn’t holy and that isn’t right. Think about if you are actually a spiritual person or someone who sows discord among their brothers and sisters.

The truth is, we need you! You have a unique beauty, honesty, sincerity, humility, compassion and mental toughness within you. It’s there! It’s like a mirror that’s dirty — you just have to brush the muck away to see it. It took me a long time to do that, but once you do it, all you want to do is good for others on this planet. When you do good, you feel good! So I want you to never give up! If you know that you’re doing the right thing, please continue on your journey. As long as you’re not hurting someone, as long as you’re helping someone, believe me — you are in God’s presence!

We want you to win at this game called Life and it ain’t easy, that’s for sure! A lot of people say you have to have guilt and sin and suffering to appreciate life. But Gar doesn’t believe in that philosophy. Gar doesn’t believe in sin. Gar doesn’t believe in guilt. Gar doesn’t believe in suffering. Gar doesn’t believe that it is a God-given acceptance that we must have suffering on Earth. Gar doesn’t believe it.

Gar believes that it is a God-given right to have Paradise on Earth. Heaven on Earth. Happiness and goodwill for all!

So how do you become happy? Truly happy? First, you have to experience freedom. That’s what I live and breathe and see and hear and smell and touch and think and meditate about each and every day.

Freedom!

Because once you have freedom, you have love. You have happiness. You have joy. Think about all those kids out there who don’t have any freedom. Think about all those people in unhealthy relationships who think they don’t have a way out. Think about all those people that turn to alcohol and drugs to feel happy. They don’t have freedom. They are chained within their own minds! If we turn away from these issues and think that just because it’s not happening to us or our children or our family, that we aren’t responsible for our brothers and sisters on this Earth. Believe that and we’re only fooling ourselves because we’re all part of the same family.

It’s a depressive culture that we’re in and we must get ourselves out of it if we are going to flourish as a society. We can no longer play victim, walking around and saying, “Oh, woe is me! Oh, I lost my job. Oh, my relationship is bad, but it’s not my fault.” We create our own environment so we must dig ourselves out of our own holes! And help others in return!

We have the opportunity to have Paradise on Earth and to have Heaven on Earth. But no one but yourself can achieve this dream for you. So if each and every one of you believes that and believe it wholeheartedly, and continue to believe, trust me, you will have Heaven on Earth!

So, do it.

Go for it.

Be positive.

Be loving.

Be humble.

Be compassionate.

Be tough.

Be competitive.

Be honest.

Be truthful.

Be loving.

And maybe, just maybe, your dreams will come true!

Keep the lights on for me and for you, for your children, for your parents, for your family, for your friends near and far, for strangers and for Gar. Make today the day that you live as if it’s your last day on this earth.

What are you going to do today? Are you going to sit around and gossip about your neighbors? Or are you going to sit around and talk about what your brother did you ten years ago? Of course not! It’s your last day. Live today as if it’s your last. What are you going to do? Will you treat your loved ones special? That would be a great start.

Always remember love. Just always give love to whomever, to whatever and to wherever you are. Love wins over everything else. Keep the lights on, may the light of your soul always shine upon you, may the light shine upon you, your neighbor, your country, your planet and the universe.

Peace, Grace, Love and Namasgar,

Gar
