Soul strengthening: Skillful effort is the sole price of Residence in your kingdom of heaven.


A man had two sons. He came to the first and said, Son, today go to work in my vineyard. The son answered, I will not. But, afterward he repented and went to work. Jesus

Knock and ye shall enter. Jesus

This is how your nervous system works. When the soul, your holy spirit, are in charge, they are working you. They are not passive in a world of suffering and in the absence of joy. They are working you. They are waging you. And every breath they give you the reward of joy. The reward of Joy comes no other way.

If you take a moment or longer to reflect on your own life, you will find that this is true. It's how we're built.
