DAY 3 - Conquering Sin


 Here is Richard Wagner- 'Tannhauser'- it will close the day out.

A quote from Augustine’s Confessions:

“In my youth I wandered away, too far from your sustaining hand, and created of myself a barren waste.”
I have walked miles in snow.
I have been broke and slept on hardwood floors.
I have detoxed on a death bed for days.
I can go on and on-

Through it all I never blamed God; instead, I thanked Him for this life.

1.) Make a list of all your Sins.

2.) Purchase the right one. A spiritual emblem to be worn around your Neck.

3.) Choose a random Cemetery, walk around and take notice of the Names.

4.) Search out the Perfect Spot in Nature and Burn the List.

5.) Enter your Church or a New Church and ask forgiveness.

6.) Submerge the emblem in Holy Water, inside a Church or outside in a River or a Stream. Close your eyes; breathe in the air: the Gift of Life.

7.) Arrive at home: Set aside an hour to be alone. Center your body in the middle of your bed. Fold your hands over your heart. Close your eyes and mind and focus on an image of a red rose. Be Silent and Do. Not. Move. Avoid any itch or any thought that may enter your mind. Relax. Be Still and Be One with The Universe.

When a person experiences a near-death experience, they see a glorious light.  The seventh and final step may open the door to this light.  This spiritual awakening may be the answer to your life.

There are 7 virtues and 7 sins:
CHASTITY overcomes the sin of lust
TEMPERANCE overcomes the sin of gluttony
DILIGENCE overcomes the sin of sloth
HUMILITY overcomes the sin of pride
KINDNESS overcomes the sin of envy
GENEROSITY overcomes the sin of greed
MEEKNESS overcomes the sin of wrath
