This is my description of my fundamental outlook on life. I can only be described as a God fearing, God loving, Catholic Christian.
NO CRYING AT MY FUNERAL

It is with great pleasure that I move over and give some space to a meditation that does justice to the spirituality of "SHALOM." This reflection comes from the heart of a person who knows that security in life comes only to those who live it in the constant presence of God. The effective presence of God is the true SHALOM. I invite you all to open yourselves to our brother's reflection. Let us thank him for giving us permission to hear God speak to us through Brother Phil's expression of SHALOM.
There is a state of mind that is a help in being receptive to the answers to prayer. This state of *Being* or
mind is the urgent help of calm confidence, and peace-filled open mindedness, to our Father God's Word.
Shalom is this alignment, this connection, to the Divine Directions given us in the stillness of the present
moment. Our Lord Jesus Christ purchased this 'alignment ' for us so that we may partake of the many
Blessings that our Father God has for us. In, with, and through, 'Shalom' we are above the inactive,
stagnant, uncertain, and fear driven mindsets that often surround us. Unshakeable Trust envelopes our
*Being* causing even our understanding to be still and to know that God is God. Shalom shows us our Lord
Jesus Christ moving with and through our actions, moment by moment. Each moment we (you and I)
have the 'Now' opportunity to allow God-Omnipotent to change disorder into order, chaos into cosmos,
death into Life. This assurance of Shalom gives us the trust we need to be healthy, happy, prosperous, and
Loving, no matter what the surrounding circumstances may dictate to us. Shalom is the Peace that
is felt, and the security found in our Trust of a renewed Faith. Shalom in, with, and through us
does not demand, (command) our Father God to do according to our desires. With Shalom we trust
that the *Perfect Fulfillment of Good* will occur properly and at the *Now* appointed time through God's Will.
Shalom is always available, always present to be found. So, with this focus known as Shalom !!
Let's let our Father God be our Father God, and show His marvelous actions in all that we do !!!
