Being faithful refers to sticking with one person or relationship, and showing loyalty and honesty to that individual or commitment. Cheating can be devastating, and unfaithfulness may be physical or emotional. A strong bond is critical for a meaningful relationship that lasts, and infidelity weakens the bond that a couple shares and does damage to any trust that has developed. Emotional fidelity is just as important as physical fidelity, and you should be faithful in both ways in order for your relationship to grow and flourish.
When you feel lost, when you are not sure if you are focused on the right things in your life, when you are not sure if you are with the right mate, when you are not sure if all what you are doing is worth your time and effort, stop and reconnect with who you are as a person. Take the time to write down your goals, your dreams, your aspirations. Take the time to write down all pros and cons of what you are doing right now. Take the time to listen to what your heart is telling you to do. And take the time to talk to God and see what He has in store for you. The more you realize what your heart desires, the more you feel closer to God and the more connected you are with God the more you feel happier. The more you get a sense of direction and you become clear about what you need to do next to achieve your dreams.
Before you start walking on the path of your dreams, or when you start walking, fear will come in the way. Fear of the unknown, fear of not being in a comfortable zone, fear of losing it all, fear of criticism, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of change, etc. It's just part of the process, its part of life and its part of your path. Know and believe that whatever fear you have you can conquer it with the help of God. Ask him to help you, because believe it or not God wants you to follow your heart. He is the one that planted those seeds of dreams in your heart. All what you have to do is get closer to God, feel His love, feel the strength that He is giving you to conquer your fears and to walk on that narrow path that He has designed for you. All what you have to do is believe, have faith and never lose focus on your purpose and your dreams and you will be able to kill all of your fears.
I was brought up as a Christian Orthodox, never considered myself to religious, but did the normal religious things, going on Sunday to church, confessing to a priest, taking communion on Sunday and just being an obedient Christian person. I only kept going to church because this is where I felt God's presence, it was never really to socialise because I never felt the people were really sincere in my Egyptian community, and so I never really felt connected with them, but I always felt that I need to be faithful to God no matter what is the environment around me. Until I finished writing a spiritual book that will soon be released, I realized that God is within you, He's not just in a building, and you see Him everywhere there is kindness, generosity, humbleness, love. Whenever you see those qualities in people, you see God. Whenever you see love, you see God. I also realized that rules and regulations are not made for you to stop being who you are supposed to be on Earth, they may help you in the beginning of your spiritual path but they serve no purpose anymore when your spirit is lifted up with God then the religious rules will suffocate you if you don't break free of them. So the important thing that you must ask yourself, is what you are doing today helping to grow as a person, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Is it helping you to give more love to others, to help more the less fortunate, to become more of a spiritual loving person, or is what you are doing dragging you down, making you procrastinate, being trapped in just a routine, just because everyone is doing it, you are doing it too. Do the actions that make you feel good, that helps you be a great loving person and that helps to get to your dreams. Don't let ignorance stop you from walking on the right path. Ask God to reveal to you the truth about how you ought to live your life. And He will guide you every step of the way.
True love. We hear about it often and sometimes we are in a relationship and we wonder if we found true love or not. Well true love is no matter how you feel, no matter what you are going through and no matter how you look the other person loves you and is always standing by your side. When you find true love, you don't feel alone anymore, because your other half just understands you from within and is so connected with you that he or she can tell when something is wrong before even you express your feelings. No matter what you are going through that person is holding your hand and is never letting go. You trust your mate with your life and you would do anything for him or her. You don't hide anything from your true love, your an open book to your mate. It's a freeing experience because you have nothing to hide from that person and you start understanding what is really unconditional love. A love that comes from a pure place; your heart. You love each other without any conditions. You don't say to your mate, "if you clean your mess, I'll love you, or if you shower me with gifts I'll love you more, or if you treat me better I'll love you. " true love comes from within you fall in love with the spirit, mind, heart and soul of that person. It's really a soul connection. And you feel free because your mate is loving you for who you are as a person not what you do, or where you are in your life, or how much money you have. You find true love or true love finds you when you are true to yourself and to others. I hope that in this lifetime you find your true love that will hold your hand and never let go.
What are you living for? Who are you living for? I will keep asking those questions until you find the answers. Take the time to write it down. Are you living to make a living and pay bills, and buy things. Or are you living for a reason that is beyond the material world. Until you detach yourself from the material world and truly find out why God has sent you on earth, what is your purpose and what your heart is longing for, you will never be happy, no matter how much or how little money you have. You will tell me money will bring me happiness, I will never have to think again how to pay my bills, or if I have enough gas for the week, and I can spoil myself and spoil my mate. Do not seek liveness in the things that you can have. To feel alive, happy, accomplished, satisfied and be blessed by God, you need to follow your heart. What if following your heart is doing a job that doesn't bring much money? I'm sure it will bring you enough money to have food on the table, and to be able to be self-sufficient. God will test you and He will see are you following your heart, or you going for easy money, or for something else because it brings more money. Let me tell a story that I heard from one of those motivational sparkers. A mechanic was always diligent and going to work every day on time, was always serving his customer the best way possible, and doing his work from his heart. That was his passion, the other mechanic was always jealous of him, he always felt the boss was treating him better and he was only dreaming of taking over the business, because he wanted more money, but his work did not come from his heart and he would be neglecting customers, and saying Im not getting paid enough to do the work that they expect me to do. 25 years has passed and the mechanic was still diligent, he was just content with what he was doing, he never really worked for money, but always was great in what he was doing and how he was treating others. The other mechanic asked one day:"why are you working so hard, we are not getting paid enough" He answered, whatever I do, I do it for God, I don't do it for my boss. Whenever I treat someone with respect and love, it's because that's the way I treat God and that's the way he treats me, I am a servant of God and he expects me to do my best." A few days later, the owner of the Company, wanted to retire, and he was thinking who would be the best to take over. I'm sure you guessed that he picked that mechanic that was flawless in his work, and he gave it to him free. Did not even sale it to him. After 25 years of following his heart and never working really for money, he became the owner of a garage, free and clear. This is a true story, in case you were wondering. God will bless you with money and things that are from this world, only if you follow your heart. Do the things that you love, and love will find you, blessings will be pour into you and into your life and you will feel euphoric in the midst of the troubled world that we are in. Find your own paradise, and the only way is to do what you love. If you don't, you loose yourself, you feel slave to money, and you will always feel frustrated that there is never enough. Because what you are truly seeking is to feed your heart not to feed your ego. If you don't follow your heart, you will die. You will be like a dead zombie and you will not feel good about yourself and you will not be useful to anyone. It's o.k if you have a job that you don't like right now because reality is that we all have to make a living and be able to pay our bills, but keep feeding that heart of yours on the side, keep doing the steps toward your goals and dreams. So many movies out there that are examples of working hard and still following on the side their passion. Flash Dance is an example. Once you start taking the steps toward your dreams, you will feel the hand of God helping you and you will know then that you are on the right path. Always keep walking towards your goals, never give up. Just keep walking and you will always feel that liveness in you no matter how much things you have or money you have..you won't even care about it, because your heart is completely filled up when you follow your passion, when you follow your heart.
