When Life Gets Hard

There comes a time in everyone's life when trouble and difficulties seems to gang up on them. When this happens; when life gets hard; what is the creative way to handle things?

FIRST: Don't try to do it all yourself. Don't struggle and fret. Do not complain and strain. Do all you can about things, and then put it all into God's hands, trusting Him to make it all turn out right. You can trust in God. You can depend on Him.  He will not fail you. Let go and let God.

SECOND: Pray for guidance, and believe that direction is now being given to you. Believe that this guidance can be trusted. Depend on it, for it will not let you down.

THIRD: Pray for, and practice, a calm attitude. Disturbing things will remain disturbing as long as you allow yourself to be disturbed. When you become peaceful, conditions will iron themselves out. You cannot think creatively when your mind is upset and frantic. Remember: Upset minds upset; peaceful minds "peacefulize".

FOURTH: Saturate your consciousness with faith, believing that things will turn out right. Say aloud, every day, several times, "Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee." [Isa 26:3 KJV] "In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength".[Isa 30:15 KJV] "Peace I give to you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." [John 14:27 KJV]

FIFTH: Remind yourself of one great truth; hard experiences will pass away. They will yield. They can be changed. Just hold on, with God's help.

SIXTH: There is always a light in the darkness. Believe this. Look for this light. This light is the love of God. "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." [Psa 119:105 KJV]  Go ahead into the darkness unafraid.

SEVENTH: Ask the Lord to release your own creative ingenuity and wisdom, which together ca, in fact, handle any problem successfully. 

EIGHTH: Never forget that God cares for you, that He loves you, and  that He wants to help you. Turn to Him and gratefully accept His help.

NINTH: Remember that all human beings experience  troubles similar to your own. Many years ago, a graduating class gave a stone bench which had these words engraved on it: "To those who sit here, sorrowing or rejoicing; Greetings. So also we did in our time/"

TENTH: Hold onto this great promise: "God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in trouble." God will see you through, and a brighter day will dawn for you.

Life is easier than you think. 
All you have to do is:
Accept the impossible,
Do without the indispensable,
Bear the intolerable,
Be able to smile at anything.

  1. Dear Friends and Colleagues:

    We would like to offer you a free book for your daily study and meditation about the future prophesies of the world, economy crisis, the planet ecological disaster, how and why the increasing of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis and typhoons around the world and the end of humanity.

    Hercolubus or Red Planet written by V. M. Rabolu is a book which speaks about the most imminent events to come. In this small book, the author tackles serious topics of actuality that are happening nowadays like the atomic tests in the ocean and the fatal consequences causing the unbalance changes of the climate around the world. He describes the controversial question of the existence of conscientious beings in other planets of the universe. Likewise, he confirms the existence of an enormous planet, six times bigger than Jupiter, which is approaching our planet in an alarming way. He describes the consequences for us.

    V.M. Rabolu (1926-2000) was born in Tolima (Colombia). In 1952, he found the true knowledge by means of many years of practicing what he teaches in this book. He managed to develop his extraordinary capacities that transformed him into a spiritual guide of international renown.

    In 1998, he wrote "Hercolubus or Red Planet" based in his direct and conscientious experience. V.M. Rabolu describes the terrible events that will happen in a short term. He teaches the way to obtain a deep transformation of the human being. Nowadays, the statements in his book have been recognized by a large number of readers around the world who are getting many benefits from his teachings.

    V.M. Rabolu is one of those few souls with awakened Conscience, and his teachings have become indispensable in these times when materialism and the lack of moral values have transformed our society into a madness and chaos full of wars, alcohol, drugs, sexual abuse, misery, painting a very dark future for new generations.

    Hercolubus or the Red Planet is written above all with a great dose of sensibility and love for humanity. The assertions contained in the book will draw the attention of society as the events unfold in the near future.

    From the table of contents:

    Hercolubus or Red Planet

    Nuclear Tests in the ocean and the ecological disasters

    Elimination of the Psychological Defects or Egos

    Astral Unfolding and its techniques

    The mystery of life in other planets

    The Book synthesizes our work with three factors: The elimination of the psychological defects, with which every person can achieve scientific chastity and the love for humanity and our planet.

    V.M. Rabolu’s message is clear and conclusive: "Human beings must increase their level of conscience to overcome the forthcoming worldwide calamities."
