Michael, you ask some very hard hit yet good questions. We lost our way since we left HOME (our first home God's kingdom, there we knew only love). When we found out we couldn't find our way back HOME, we started to have negative feelings. Some of us began to feel angry & some deeply depressed. These feelings were strange to us, & later these new feelings became common place. We couldn't go HOME yet because we needed to earn God's trust. He needed to know that we love him for real, not under false pretenses. These new strange feelings of negativity is what keeps us separated from God where unconditional love is & keeps us separated from each other. This is how we lost our sense of togetherness, our sense of family. We lost sight of what is really important. We all did.
Now it is time to come back to our awareness of that which has separated us, getting rid of these negative feelings by focusing in on what really matters so we can never be separated from each other again. We are all family.
You are welcome, Michael and thank you for asking your question. Lots of love to you, Michelle

I've included this song in hopes to help people stop & think before reacting through speech & physical angry responses. You just don't know what is going on in that person's life. Now here's a stop & think question: Could it be that someone's being hurt at home?
