Good scripture, one of the best. (And it's our daily text for today: Sunday, 11/27.) But, I can't quite understand the connection to Rachel McAdams (as seen in Mean Girls, Dr. Strange, Sherlock Holmes, The Notebook, The Vow, etc). It seems like it's just another way of indicating that most of us, being human, require something physical to initially attract us to spiritual things. I wonder if this is the best way to express a message about spirituality, though.

Well........ this is a classic example of why Jehovah has seen to it that real "spiritual food at the proper time" is provided only by "the faithful and discreet slave" in these last days. Matt 24:45.

Questions:

Based on what scripture is the statement: "Obedience males our spirituality progressively stronger" based?

Obedience to whom or what is meant here? If the answer is: the gb of the WBTS, then show me any scriptural proof that obedience to men has made a person grow in spirituality (I assume with this word FAITH is meant..)

      So lets try to be a bit positive.  A question.  How is the GB and the JW Org moving forward SPIRITUALLY ?
      What progress has it made in the last fifty years ?   I'm not talking about physical things, not buildings, not books, not meeting times........ 
      I'm talking about purely spiritual matters.  Spiritual guidance, true spiritual love from the top of the Org down, mercy, understanding of people, serving the congregants as a way of serving God Himself (as Jesus did), showing patience without having weakness, making true adjustments according to true scripture not according to man's guesses. 
      You may of course comment as to what you feel would make for good spiritual progress within the JW Org too.

      Summary:
      Therapy dog sessions for stressed-out students are an increasingly popular offering at North American universities. Now, new research confirms that some doggy one-on-one time really can do the trick of boosting student wellness.
      Therapy dog sessions for stressed-out students are an increasingly popular offering at North American universities. Now, new research from the University of British Columbia confirms that some doggy one-on-one time really can do the trick of boosting student wellness.
      "Therapy dog sessions are becoming more popular on university campuses, but there has been surprisingly little research on how much attending a single drop-in therapy dog session actually helps students," said Emma Ward-Griffin, the study's lead author and research assistant in the UBC department of psychology. "Our findings suggest that therapy dog sessions have a measurable, positive effect on the wellbeing of university students, particularly on stress reduction and feelings of negativity."
      In research published today in Stress and Health, researchers surveyed 246 students before and after they spent time in a drop-in therapy dog session. Students were free to pet, cuddle and chat with seven to 12 canine companions during the sessions. They also filled out questionnaires immediately before and after the session, and again about 10 hours later.
      The researchers found that participants reported significant reductions in stress as well as increased happiness and energy immediately following the session, compared to a control group of students who did not spend time at a therapy dog session. While feelings of happiness and life satisfaction did not appear to last, some effects did.

      The two notes sold for $1.56m and $240,000 - way higher than their estimates
      A note written by Albert Einstein containing advice on happy living has sold at an auction house in Jerusalem for $1.56m (£1.19m).
      Einstein gave the note to a courier in Tokyo in 1922 instead of a tip.
      He had just heard that he had won the coveted Nobel prize for physics and told the messenger that, if he was lucky, the notes would become valuable.
      Einstein suggested in the note that achieving a long-dreamt goal did not necessarily guarantee happiness.
      The German-born physicist had won the Nobel and was in Japan on a lecture tour.
      When the courier came to his room to make a delivery, he did not have any money to reward him.

      Einstein (seen here in 1950) wrote the hotel notes shortly after winning the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics
      Instead, he handed the messenger a signed note - using stationery of the Imperial Hotel Tokyo - with one sentence, written in German: "A calm and humble life will bring more happiness than the pursuit of success and the constant restlessness that comes with it."
      A second note written at the same time simply reads: "Where there's a will, there's a way." It sold for $240,000, Winner's auction house said.

      Summary:
      Generosity makes people happier, even if they are only a little generous. People who act solely out of self-interest are less happy. Merely promising to be more generous is enough to trigger a change in our brains that makes us happier, neuroeconomists found in a recent study.

      Unless you're a genetic anomaly, it's likely you will meet people you don't like throughout your lifetime. Whether it's your mother-in-law or one of your colleagues, you're bound to come across someone you simply don't click with.
      According to Deep Patel, author of the book A Paperboy's Fable: The 11 Principles of Success , it helps to remember nobody's perfect. That includes you.
      In a blog post for Entrepreneur.com , Patel highlights some tips successful people use to deal with people they don't get along with. After all, it's unlikely you'll simply be able to avoid people you don't like - in fact, Patel argues if you restrict who you can work with, you are only limiting yourself.
      Instead of burying your head in the sand, try and shift your perspective in the ways successful people do. Here are some tips from Patel and other sources such as Psychology Today .
      1. Accept that you can't get on with everyone.
      As much as we hope to like everyone we meet, it often simply isn't the case. Patel says the first step to dealing with the people you don't click with is accepting nobody gets on with everyone, and that's okay. It doesn't mean you're a bad person, and it doesn't mean they are either (not necessarily, anyway.)
      According to psychologist Dr Susan Krauss in a blog post on Psychology Today , it's likely that you and the person just aren't a good fit. Consultant and author Beverly D. Flaxington explains in another blog post on Psychology Today that our behavioural styles can get come between people. Some are dominant, whereas others are timid. Some people are optimists and others consider themselves "realists."
      A research paper by Hamstra et al looked at something called "regulatory fit," which translates as: we are much more likely to put effort into the things we like doing. Chances are you don't enjoy interacting with the people you don't like, and so you don't put much effort in. Over time, this lack of effort can turn into contempt.
      2. Try and put a positive spin on what they are saying.
      Krauss says you could try and look at how people are acting differently. Your in-laws might not have meant to imply that you aren't smart, and your co-worker may not actually be trying to sabotage you.
      Even if the person you're having difficulty with is aggravating you on purpose, getting angry about it will probably just make you look bad. So try and give them the benefit of the doubt.
      3. Be aware of your own emotions.
      Patel says it's important to remember your own emotions matter, but ultimately you alone have control over how you react to situations. People will only drive you crazy if you allow them to. So don't let your anger spin out of control.
      If someone is rubbing you the wrong way, recognise those feelings and then let them go without engaging with the person. Sometimes just smiling and nodding will do the trick.
      The key, Patel says, is in treating everyone you meet with the same level of respect. That doesn't mean you have to agree with a person you don't like or go along with what they say, but you should act civilised and be polite. In doing this, you can remain firm on your issues but not come across like you're attacking someone personally, which should give you the upper hand.
      4. Don't take it personally and get some space.
      More often than not a disagreement is probably a misunderstanding. If not, and you really do fundamentally disagree with someone, then try and see it from their perspective.
      Try not to overreact, because they may overreact in return, meaning things escalate quickly and fiercely. Try to rise above it all by focusing on facts, and try to ignore how the other person is reacting, no matter how ridiculous or irrational. Concentrate on the issue, Patel says, not the person.
      If you need some space, take it. You're perfectly within your rights to establish boundaries and decide when you interact with someone. If you feel yourself getting worked up, take a time-out and get some breathing space. President of TalentSmart Dr. Travis Bradberry explains it simply in a post on LinkedIn : if they were smoking, would you sit there all afternoon inhaling the second-hand smoke? No, you'd move away and get some fresh air.
      5. Express your feelings calmly and consider using a referee.
      Usually, the way we communicate is more important than what we actually say. If someone is repeatedly annoying you and it's leading to bigger problems, Patel says it's probably time to say something.
      However, confrontation doesn't have to be aggressive. Patel recommends you use "I" statements, such as "I feel annoyed when you do this, so could you please do this instead."
      Being as specific as possible will make it more likely the person will take what you're saying on board. It will also give them a better opportunity to share their side of the story.
      Krauss says it might be a good idea to use another person as a mediator in these discussions because they can bring a level of objectivity to a situation. You may not end up as friends, but you might find out a way to communicate and work together in an effective way. She says learning to work with people you find difficult is a very fulfilling experience, and it could become one more way of showing how well you overcome barriers.
      6. Pick your battles.
      Sometimes it might just be easier to let things go. Not everything is worth your time and attention. You have to ask yourself whether you really want to engage with the person, or your effort might be better spent just getting on with your work, or whatever else you're doing.
      Patel says the best way to figure this out is weighing up whether the issue is situational. Will it go away in time, or could it get worse? If it's the latter, it might be better expending energy into sorting it out sooner or later. If it's just a matter of circumstance, you'll probably get over it fairly quickly.
      7. Don't be defensive.
      If you find someone is constantly belittling you or focusing on your flaws , don't bite. The worst thing you can do is be defensive. Patel says this will only give them more power. Instead, turn the spotlight on them and start asking them probing questions, such as what in particular their problem is with what you're doing.
      If they start bullying you, call them out on it. If they want you to treat them with respect, they have to earn it by being civil to you, too. Dr Berit Brogaard, a neuroscientist, explains in a blog post on Psychology Today that workplace gossip and bullying can be a method of power play, or a way of bullying others into submission.
      If you want to be sneaky to get someone to agree with you, there are psychological tricks you can use. Research suggests you should speak faster when disagreeing with someone so they have less time to process what you're saying. If you think they might be agreeing with you, then slow down so they have time to take in your message .
      8. Ultimately, remember you are in control of your own happiness.
      If someone is really getting on your nerves, it can be difficult to see the bigger picture. However, you should never let someone else limit your happiness or success.
      If you're finding their comments are really getting to you, ask yourself why that is. Are you self-conscious about something, or are you anxious about something at work? If so, focus on this instead of listening to other people's complaints.
      You alone have control over your feelings, so stop comparing yourself to anyone else. Instead, remind yourself of all your achievements, and don't let someone gain power over you just because they momentarily darken your day.

      Most mornings as I leave the Y after my swim and shower, I cross paths with a coterie of toddlers entering with their caregivers for a kid-oriented activity. I can’t resist saying hello, requesting a high-five, and wishing them a fun time. I leave the Y grinning from ear to ear, uplifted not just by my own workout but even more so by my interaction with these darling representatives of the next generation.
      What a great way to start the day!
      When I told a fellow swimmer about this experience and mentioned that I was writing a column on the health benefits of positive emotions, she asked, “What do you do about people who are always negative?” She was referring to her parents, whose chronic negativity seems to drag everyone down and make family visits extremely unpleasant.
      I lived for half a century with a man who suffered from periodic bouts of depression, so I understand how challenging negativism can be. I wish I had known years ago about the work Barbara Fredrickson, a psychologist at the University of North Carolina, has done on fostering positive emotions, in particular her theory that accumulating “micro-moments of positivity,” like my daily interaction with children, can, over time, result in greater overall well-being.
      The research that Dr. Fredrickson and others have done demonstrates that the extent to which we can generate positive emotions from even everyday activities can determine who flourishes and who doesn’t. More than a sudden bonanza of good fortune, repeated brief moments of positive feelings can provide a buffer against stress and depression and foster both physical and mental health, their studies show.
      This is not to say that one must always be positive to be healthy and happy. Clearly, there are times and situations that naturally result in negative feelings in the most upbeat of individuals. Worry, sadness, anger and other such “downers” have their place in any normal life. But chronically viewing the glass as half-empty is detrimental both mentally and physically and inhibits one’s ability to bounce back from life’s inevitable stresses.
      Negative feelings activate a region of the brain called the amygdala, which is involved in processing fear and anxiety and other emotions. Dr. Richard J. Davidson, a neuroscientist and founder of the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin — Madison, has shown that people in whom the amygdala recovers slowly from a threat are at greater risk for a variety of health problems than those in whom it recovers quickly.
      Both he and Dr. Fredrickson and their colleagues have demonstrated that the brain is “plastic,” or capable of generating new cells and pathways, and it is possible to train the circuitry in the brain to promote more positive responses. That is, a person can learn to be more positive by practicing certain skills that foster positivity.
      For example, Dr. Fredrickson’s team found that six weeks of training in a form of meditation focused on compassion and kindness resulted in an increase in positive emotions and social connectedness and improved function of one of the main nerves that helps to control heart rate. The result is a more variable heart rate that, she said in an interview, is associated with objective health benefits like better control of blood glucose, less inflammation and faster recovery from a heart attack.
      Dr. Davidson’s team showed that as little as two weeks’ training in compassion and kindness meditation generated changes in brain circuitry linked to an increase in positive social behaviors like generosity.
      “The results suggest that taking time to learn the skills to self-generate positive emotions can help us become healthier, more social, more resilient versions of ourselves,” Dr. Fredrickson reported in the National Institutes of Health monthly newsletter in 2015.
      In other words, Dr. Davidson said, “well-being can be considered a life skill. If you practice, you can actually get better at it.” By learning and regularly practicing skills that promote positive emotions, you can become a happier and healthier person. Thus, there is hope for people like my friend’s parents should they choose to take steps to develop and reinforce positivity.
      In her newest book, “Love 2.0,” Dr. Fredrickson reports that “shared positivity — having two people caught up in the same emotion — may have even a greater impact on health than something positive experienced by oneself.” Consider watching a funny play or movie or TV show with a friend of similar tastes, or sharing good news, a joke or amusing incidents with others. Dr. Fredrickson also teaches “loving-kindness meditation” focused on directing good-hearted wishes to others. This can result in people “feeling more in tune with other people at the end of the day,” she said.
      Activities Dr. Fredrickson and others endorse to foster positive emotions include:
      Do good things for other people. In addition to making others happier, this enhances your own positive feelings. It can be something as simple as helping someone carry heavy packages or providing directions for a stranger.
      Appreciate the world around you. It could be a bird, a tree, a beautiful sunrise or sunset or even an article of clothing someone is wearing. I met a man recently who was reveling in the architectural details of the 19th-century houses in my neighborhood.
      Develop and bolster relationships. Building strong social connections with friends or family members enhances feelings of self-worth and, long-term studies have shown, is associated with better health and a longer life.
      Establish goals that can be accomplished. Perhaps you want to improve your tennis or read more books. But be realistic; a goal that is impractical or too challenging can create unnecessary stress.
      Learn something new. It can be a sport, a language, an instrument or a game that instills a sense of achievement, self-confidence and resilience. But here, too, be realistic about how long this may take and be sure you have the time needed.
      Choose to accept yourself, flaws and all. Rather than imperfections and failures, focus on your positive attributes and achievements. The loveliest people I know have none of the external features of loveliness but shine with the internal beauty of caring, compassion and consideration of others.
      Practice resilience. Rather than let loss, stress, failure or trauma overwhelm you, use them as learning experiences and steppingstones to a better future. Remember the expression: When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade.
      Practice mindfulness. Ruminating on past problems or future difficulties drains mental resources and steals attention from current pleasures. Let go of things you can’t control and focus on the here-and-now. Consider taking a course in insight meditation.

      Norway can be frigid. And the winters bring lots of darkness. But it's the happiest nation in world, according to the 2017 World Happiness Report.
      Denmark comes in at #2, followed by Iceland and Switzerland. Finland takes 5th place. And, it turns out, these countries have more in common than a tolerance for cold.
      Well-being is shaped by a range of factors. "All of the top countries rank highly on all the main factors found to support happiness: caring, freedom, generosity, honesty, health, income and good governance," according to the report.
      The second tier of the top ten includes the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Sweden (the last two tied for 9th position).
      The developing world has its share of unhappy countries. According to the report, some of the unhappiest nations in the world are Afghanistan, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Haiti.
      But there are encouraging signs in low- and middle-income countries. Cameroon, Latvia, Nicaragua and Sierra Leone, for example, are all on the list of the 20 countries reporting the highest gains in happiness.
      Meanwhile, happiness in the U.S. has slipped a bit, according to the report. "The reasons are declining social support" as well as a decline in trust — and an increased sense of corruption, write the co-editors in a summary report. In 2015, the U.S. ranked 13th. This year, it slipped to 14th.
      The report draws on survey data from 155 countries. "We ask people to think of their lives as a whole," explains report co-editor John Helliwell, an economist at the University of British Columbia who studies well-being and comparative economic growth. Each year, researchers survey 1,000 people in each country.
      Some questions are quite simple, such as: In times of trouble, do you have family and/or friends to count on? Other questions measure people's perceived levels of freedom, generosity and trust — both in each other and in their governments and businesses.
      The Nordic countries have among the most generous social safety nets. "Access to higher education, access to high-quality health services are part of it, explains Jon-Åge Øyslebø, minister of communications, cultural affairs and education at the Norwegian Embassy. (We reached out to him before he had heard about the top spot his country had earned in the new report.)
      There are also generous social support programs. For instance, new parents in Norway are eligible for nearly a year of leave with pay. "Norway is a relatively egalitarian society with regard to both to income differences and gender," Øyslebø told us. He says he thinks this is an important part of the happiness equation.
      Another factor, of course, is the economy. Overall, Norway is pretty wealthy, in part due to the natural resource of oil. But even though oil prices have declined, Norwegian level of happiness has risen, at least according to the report.
      "Absolutely there's more to it than money," Øyslebø says. Many studies have shown that after people's basic needs are met, additional income is not necessarily a path to happiness.
      So what's the value of these global ranking? After all, the survey data that they're based on are pretty crude measures. And at any given time, in any nation, some people are suffering while others thrive.
      "The reason for taking this [report] seriously," co-editor John Helliwell told us, is that it offers an alternative to thinking of "income as the measure of progress."

      "The Golden Rule"
      “All things, therefore, that you want men to do to you, you also must likewise do to them.” (Matthew 7:12)
      YES, the Originator of what Jesus taught, including what came to be known as the Golden Rule, is the one who sent Jesus, namely, the Creator, Jehovah God.
      God originally purposed that all mankind treat one another as they would like to be treated. He set the finest example in expressing care for the welfare of others in the way he created humans: “God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27) 
      This means that God lovingly endowed humans with a measure of his own outstanding qualities so that they could enjoy life in peace, happiness, and harmony—potentially forever. Their God-given conscience, when properly trained, would guide them to treat others the way they themselves would want to be treated.

      The states with the lowest well-being scores were West Virginia and Kentucky, appearing in the last two spots for eight years in a row in the Gallup-Healthways rankings.
       
       
      Hawaii has emerged as the undisputed winner of the title of the happiest state with two recent polls awarding the Aloha state with the top spot on their respective lists.
      The state topped the Gallup-Healthways 2016 State Well-Being Rankings, released Wednesday, as well as America’s Health Rankings Annual Report for the sixth and fifth time, respectively. Alaska, which was also the runner-up in the Gallup-Healthways rankings for 2015, came in on the second spot, followed by South Dakota, Maine and Colorado.
      “Hawaii has had a heck of a run,” Dan Witters, research director of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, told Today. “They do a lot of things right there. They take good care of themselves. They do the blocking and tackling of physical wellness really well.”
      The state with the lowest well-being scores was West Virginia, which along with Kentucky, Oklahoma, Indiana and Arkansas rounded off the bottom five. Kentucky and West Virginia have been at the last two spots for eight years in a row, according to Gallup-Healthways.
      The Gallup-Healthways conducts interviews with over 177,000 U.S. adults across the 50 states between January and December of a particular year. On the basis of these interactions, each state is given a well-being score depending on how the participants answered questions about their sense of purpose, social relationships, financial situations, involvement in the community and physical health.
      The full list of states ranked by their well-being score out of 100 can be seen below:
      1. Hawaii 65.2
      2. Alaska 64.0
      3. South Dakota 63.7
      4. Maine 63.6
      5. Colorado 63.5

      Misao Okawa – Misao Okawa of Osaka, Japan, was 117 when she died on April 1. She was the world's oldest person, according to Guinness World Records. She was born on March 5, 1898, and had three children. Her husband died in 1931. She kept in shape throughout much of her life; at 102, she said she did leg squats to keep healthy. She didn't start using a wheelchair until she turned 110.

      (CNN)Go ahead lie about your age. It may be the very thing that helps you live a longer life.
      If those fibbers truly believe that they are younger than what it says on their birth certificate, a new study shows they are among a group of people who have a lower death rate.
      That's compared with those who felt their age or who even feel older than their years.
      The new research letter is published in JAMA Internal Medicine online.
      The study looked at data from from 6,489 people with an average age of 65.8 years who reported that they felt a little less than 10 years younger. What's interesting is most people in the study didn't feel like their actual age. Most said they felt about three years younger. Only a tiny percent, some 4.8%, felt at least a year older than their actual age.
      When University College London researchers followed up on these people over the next eight years, the scientists found only a little over 14% of those who felt younger than their years had died. That was compared with the more than 24% of the people who reported feeling older or feeling their age who had died. Some 18% of the people who felt like their chronological age died in that same time period.
      The researchers say they want to better understand what made the difference with this group.
      "Possibilities include a broader set of health behaviors than we measured (such as maintaining a healthy weight and adherence to medical advice), and greater resilience, sense of mastery and will to live among those who feel younger than their age," the study concludes. "Self-perceived age has the potential to change, so interventions may be possible. Individuals who feel older than their actual age could be targeted with health messages promoting positive health behaviors and attitudes toward aging."
      Dr. Sharon Bergquist, a physician and assistant professor of medicine at Emory University School of Medicine who specializes in healthy aging, isn't surprised by the results.
      "Research is showing us that personality can so be tied to your destiny," Bergquist said.
      New research into the link between personality and aging finds that there are two main traits that seem to help people live a longer life: conscientiousness and optimism.
      People who have both traits may have more of a will to do the right thing to live a healthy lifestyle that can keep them healthy long into old age.
      "Aging well can certainly become a self-fulfilling prophecy," she said.

      WASHINGTON — Having a happy spouse may be related to better health, at least among middle-aged and older adults, according to a new study published by the American Psychological Association. 
      In a nationally representative study of 1,981 middle-aged heterosexual couples, researchers found that people with happy spouses were much more likely to report better health over time. This occurred above and beyond the person’s own happiness, according to the study, published in the APA journal Health Psychology®. 
      “This finding significantly broadens assumptions about the relationship between happiness and health, suggesting a unique social link,” said William Chopik, PhD, an assistant professor of psychology at Michigan State University and principal investigator of the study. “Simply having a happy partner may enhance health as much as striving to be happy oneself.” 
      Previous research suggests happy people are generally healthy people, but Chopik wanted to take it one step further by exploring the health effects of interpersonal relationships. He said there are at least three potential reasons why having a happy partner might enhance a person’s health, irrespective of one’s own happiness:
      Happy partners likely provide stronger social support, such as caretaking, as compared to unhappy partners who are more likely to be focused on their own stressors. Happy partners may get unhappy people involved with activities and environments that promote good health, such as maintaining regular sleep cycles, eating nutritious food and exercising. Being with a happy partner should make a person’s life easier even if not explicitly happier. “Simply knowing that one’s partner is satisfied with his or her individual circumstances may temper a person’s need to seek self-destructive outlets, such as drinking or drugs, and may more generally offer contentment in ways that afford health benefits down the road,” Chopik said. 
      The study examined the survey information of couples age 50 to 94, including happiness, self-rated health and physical activity over a six-year period. The results showed no difference between husbands and wives in the study. Eighty-four percent were white, 8 percent were African-American, and 6 percent were Hispanic. Participants answered questions about their health, including level of physical impairment, chronic illnesses and level of physical activity, as well as any concerns they had regarding their spouse’s health. Participants rated their own happiness and life satisfaction.
      Article: “Happy You, Healthy Me? Having a Happy Partner is Independently Associated with Better Health in Oneself,” by William J. Chopik, PhD, Michigan State University, and Ed O’Brien, PhD, University of Chicago. Health Psychology, published online Sept. 19, 2016.

      It took 5 years after my divorce for me to start meeting people again.
      For many years I couldn’t imagine ever meeting anyone new because I was still stuck on my past relationship. I enjoyed marinating in the past, feeling sorry for myself, guilty for what had happened, and fearful of what could happen in another relationship.
      I had no desire to meet someone new. As time passed and I did the work of grieving and healing, things changed. In a more grounded and healed space, I am open to meeting new people in my life.
      Having met a few women of late, I’m beginning to wonder if another relationship is even possible. Is the “one” person out there for me? Will I find love again? Will I find another relationship?
      I know that if you’re divorced, broken up, or single for a long time, it can feel like you’ll never meet someone again. You might feel like you’ve done everything you can to meet that special someone but it doesn’t seem to be working.
      Here are 7 things to keep in mind if you feel like you will never be with someone again.
       
      You are enough by yourself.
      Before you can meet someone and find a relationship, you must do inner work. Some of us have a lot of inner work to do. You might not know how to love yourself. Others might have a bad relationship with themselves. You might not feel complete or enough. Before seeking a relationship, you have to learn to be enough by just being you. This means accepting yourself for who you are. It’s realizing that you don’t need anyone but yourself. It’s realizing that you are complete. To realize that you are enough, look for ways to honor and appreciate yourself. Think about your loving and generous nature. Affirm daily that you are enough, you are loving and you are complete.
      How you treat yourself is more important than any relationship.
      You want a relationship filled with kisses, kind words, shared memories, and support, but can you receive love from someone else if you can’t accept it from yourself? Before trying to love someone else, love yourself. Do for yourself what you would do for someone else. Be considerate to yourself. Be patient to yourself. Be positive to yourself. Be gentle with yourself in the words you use and the way you treat yourself. Treat yourself to what you would enjoy. Splurge on yourself so you feel pampered and taken care of. Get enough sleep, rest, exercise, nutritious food and self-care. Treat yourself as you would treat your most devoted and passionate lover. If you’re seeking more ideas, check out my self-romance book here.
      Visualize the relationship you want in your life.
      It is important to know what kind of person you want in your life, so visualize them. Think of the person’s characteristics, values and world perspective. I try to focus on the internal qualities that I am looking for instead of the external ones. I’m not as preoccupied with someone’s career, looks or credentials. I’m not hiring someone to work for me or someone to show off to others. I’m looking for someone who is compatible with me, someone I can live with for the long term. So, visualize this person, but focus on what matters. What qualities in a partner do you desire? How would those qualities make you feel? Imagine the sensations and feelings of being with the person you adore and who fits the picture you’re looking for.
      Let go of your attachment to having a relationship.
      While it is good to have a picture of the person you want, you have to balance that with the need to let go of that picture as well. Don’t obsessively focus on that person in your visions. Worst of all, don’t focus on the fact that this person is not yet in your life. Engage in moments of visualization daily, but then let go. Learn to be comfortable with yourself and without that person in your life. Let go of the “needy” or “lack” energy in your life. Don’t focus on what you don’t have. Focus on the fact that the universe is doing its work to bring you that person. You do your part (living your life) and surrender to the rest.
      Your beliefs rule your life.
      Your beliefs affect your thoughts. Your thoughts affect your actions and your words. All of this ultimately affects your reality. Your belief system rules your life more than anything else, yet it’s the one thing you can’t see. If you feel hopeless about love or frustrated that you won’t ever meet anyone, you’re likely right. You cannot have self-sabotaging beliefs and expect life to give you something better than what you’re thinking about all the time. If you want a relationship, it’s essential that you shift your belief to a more empowering one. Visualize that person coming into your life. Affirm that you’ll meet someone. Trust that you’ll do it at the right time. Continue to see a picture of what’s possible and believe that you’ll meet the right person. Affirm and commit yourself to a positive picture of love each day. No matter what the past has held, believe your time for love is right around the corner.
      Live your life to the fullest.
      Regardless of what’s happening in your love life, the way to propel it forward is to live your best life every day. Many people are waiting to live until they meet their partner. You don’t need a partner to live the life you want to have. Sitting at home, refusing to go out with friends and being allergic to doing those things that bring you joy are not helping you find love. If you’re doing those things you’re passionate about and enjoying life every day, you’re more likely to see love coming your way. Raise the vibrations in your life to what it is you want to experience. If you fill yourself with happiness, joy, friendship and companionship each day, even without a partner, you will draw more of that into your life.
      Be open to meeting people.
      You have to mentally be open to meeting people wherever you are. You also have to open your heart to meeting people. Are your mind and heart open to relationships or closed like a castle door? If you’re avoiding social events, staying away from group activities and refusing to engage with bigger groups of people, you’re preventing yourself from finding the person you’re looking for. Instead of hiding in your cubicle or in your tiny space in the world, take small steps to come out of your shell. Get comfortable being around a couple of people and build yourself up to being in bigger groups. You may not like to be in bigger crowds, but challenge yourself each time. Your best life (and your dream partner) are waiting for you outside of your comfort zone.

      It's even more important than your income
      Nice as it is, having a higher salary might not be the key to happiness. An even more important figure linked to life satisfaction is the number sitting in your checking account, according to a new study published in the journal Emotion.
      In the study, researchers looked at data from 585 customers at a U.K. bank. That included survey information, like how stressed they were about their finances and how satisfied they were with their lives, along with the balances of their checking and savings accounts.
      The amount of easily accessible cash people had predicted how satisfied they were with their lives—a link explained by how comfortable people felt about their finances. In fact, liquid wealth appeared to be even more important than income or debt status in predicting a person’s happiness. “No matter how much the customers had or earned, no matter how much debt they had, having a buffer of easily accessible cash was associated with greater happiness,” says Peter Ruberton, the study’s lead author and a doctoral candidate in social personality psychology at the University of California, Riverside.

      "Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need." Matthew 5: 3
      To be conscious of our spiritual need we have to be aware of an innate need for purpose and meaning in life. But spirituality means different things to different people. To some, putting kingdom interests first is being spiritual. To others, being spiritual has nothing to do with religion. What does spirituality mean to you and how do you show it in your life?

      Prière de Moïse qui nous apprend un message important pour les enfants de Dieu de nos jours.
       
      Ô Jéhovah, tu as été notre demeure de génération en génération.
      Avant que les montagnes soient nées
      ou que tu aies donné naissance à la terre et au sol productif,
      depuis toujours et pour toujours, tu es Dieu.
      Tu fais retourner le mortel à la poussière ;
      tu dis : « Vous, fils des hommes, retournez à la poussière. »
      Car, à tes yeux, mille ans sont comme le jour d’hier quand il est passé,
      comme une veille pendant la nuit.
      Tu emportes les humain ; ils deviennent comme un instant de sommeil.
      Au matin, ils sont comme l’herbe qui germe.
      Le matin, elle fleurit et se renouvelle,
      mais le soir, elle se flétrit et se dessèche.
      Oui, nous sommes consumés par ta colère
      et terrifiés par ta fureur.
      Tu mets nos fautes devant toi ;
      à la lumière de ton visage, nos secrets sont dévoilés.
      Nos jours déclinent à cause de ta fureur ;
      nos années s’achèvent tel un murmure.
      La durée de notre vie est de 70 ans,
      ou de 80 ans si l’on est particulièrement robuste.
      Mais elle est remplie de malheur et de chagrin ;
      elle passe vite, et nous nous envolons.
      Qui peut sonder la puissance de ta colère ?
      Ta fureur est aussi grande que la crainte qui t’est due.
      Apprends-nous à compter nos jours
      pour que nous puissions acquérir un cœur sage.
      Reviens, ô Jéhovah ! Jusqu’à quand cela va-t-il durer ?
      Aie pitié de tes serviteurs.
       
      "Au matin, rassasie-nous de ton amour fidèle,
      pour que nous puissions crier de joie et nous réjouir tous les jours de notre vie.
      Réjouis-nous pendant autant de jours que ceux où tu nous as affligés,
      pendant autant d’années que celles où nous avons connu le malheur.
      Que tes serviteurs voient ton action
      et que leurs fils voient ta splendeur.
      Que la faveur de Jéhovah notre Dieu soit sur nous !
      Puisses-tu faire réussir l’œuvre de nos mains,
      oui, fais réussir l’œuvre de nos mains. "
       
      Celui qui habite dans le lieu secret du Très-Haut
      logera à l’ombre du Tout-Puissant.
      Je veux dire à Jéhovah : « Tu es mon refuge et ma forteresse,
      mon Dieu en qui j’ai confiance. »
      Car il te délivrera du piège de l’oiseleur
      et de l’épidémie destructrice.
      Avec ses plumes il te couvrira,
      et sous ses ailes tu te réfugieras
      Sa fidélité sera un grand bouclier et un mur protecteur.
      Tu ne craindras ni les terreurs de la nuit,
      ni la flèche qui vole pendant le jour,
      ni l’épidémie qui rôde dans l’obscurité,
      ni la destruction qui ravage en plein midi.
      Mille tomberont à tes côtés
      et dix mille à ta droite,
      mais rien de cela ne s’approchera de toi.
      Toi, tu ne feras que voir cela de tes yeux
      quand tu assisteras à la punition des méchants.
      Puisque tu as dit : « Jéhovah est mon refuge »,
      tu as fait du Très-Haut ta demeure ;aucun désastre ne t’arrivera
      et aucun fléau ne s’approchera de ta tente.
      Car il donnera à ses anges un ordre à ton sujet,
      pour te protéger où que tu ailles.
      Ils te porteront sur leurs mains,
      pour que ton pied ne heurte pas de pierre. 
      Sur le jeune lion et le cobra tu marcheras ;
      tu piétineras le lion à crinière et le gros serpent.
      Dieu a dit : « Parce qu’il a de l’affection pour moi, je vais le délivrer.
      Je vais le protéger parce qu’il connaît mon nom.
      Il m’appellera à l’aide, et je lui répondrai.
      Je serai avec lui en temps de détresse.
      Je le délivrerai et le glorifierai.
      Je le rassasierai d’une longue vie
      et je lui ferai voir mes actes sauveurs. »
       
      "Au matin, rassasie-nous de ton amour fidèle,
      pour que nous puissions crier de joie et nous réjouir tous les jours de notre vie.
      Réjouis-nous pendant autant de jours que ceux où tu nous as affligés,
      pendant autant d’années que celles où nous avons connu le malheur.
      Que tes serviteurs voient ton action
      et que leurs fils voient ta splendeur.
      Que la faveur de Jéhovah notre Dieu soit sur nous !
      Puisses-tu faire réussir l’œuvre de nos mains,
      oui, fais réussir l’œuvre de nos mains."

      JÉHOVAH SON NOM EST JALOUX, IL FAIT PARTIE DE SON NOM, POURQUOI?
      Exode 34:14 bible 1985 
      JÉHOVAH SON NOM EST JALOUX POURQUOI ?
      Jéhovah est le Dieu de la création de lui toutes choses est venue à l'existence, car il est le Créateur universel et le Père de tout les vivants, de tout ce qui existent dans l'univers. Quand nous lisons sa parole, beaucoup de versets et de chapitres nous démontrent, comment il voit notre existence et comment il nous guide vers le chemin de la lumière et de la vérité.
      EN PROVERBE CHAPITRE 2 JÉHOVAH PAR SON ASSISTANT, NOUS TRANSMET UNE LETTRE INSPIRANTE PAR SALOMON ET QUI TÉMOIGNE DE LA GRANDEUR DE SA PERSONNE, COMMENT IL EST UN PÈRE AIMANT, LE PÈRE DE TOUT LES VIVANTS ET DE TOUTES CHOSES, VOICI CE QU'IL RÉVÈLE À SALOMON:
      Mon fils (NOUS), si tu fais bon accueil à mes paroles et si tu gardes précieusement mes commandements, en prêtant une oreille attentive à la sagesse et en inclinant ton coeur vers le discernement, si , de plus, tu appelles l'intelligence et si tu élèves la voie pour obtenir le discernement si tu continues à chercher cela comme de l'argent et si tu le recherches sans relâche comme des trésors cachés, alors tu comprendras ce que signifie craindre Jéhovah et tu trouveras la connaissance de Dieu. Car Jéhovah lui-même donne la sagesse: de sa bouche viennent connaissance et discernement.
      PROVERBE 2 :1-6
      Dans ces versets Jéhovah nous enseigne, un fondement primordial à notre vie, une clef pour atteindre la connaissance et la sagesse, la logique, atteindre la pleine conscience.  Sa parole, la bible nous donne une vision par le fait d'acquérir la vision justes , les paroles justes, les pensées justes, la concentration justes,  les efforts justes, les actions justes, les moyens existences justes.
      Tout ce fondement de cette lois que Jéhovah a fondé est régis sur une vertue, qui est le fruit de l'Amour, car Dieu est Amour. Galates 5:22,23 et 1 Jean 4:8
      1cor 13:4 à 8 première ligne.
      Il est écris:
      L'amour est patient et bon. L'amour n'est pas jaloux, il ne se vante pas, ne se gonfle pas d'orgueil.
      N'agit pas de façon inconvenante,  ne cherche pas ses propres intérêts, ne s'irrite pas.
      Il ne tient pas compte du mal subi. Il ne se réjouit pas de l'injustice, mais se réjouit avec la vérité.
      Il supporte tout, croit tout, endure tout.
      L'amour ne disparaît jamais.
      JÉHOVAH est un Dieu qui montre l'exemple à suivre. Il démontre par sa création qu'Il est un Dieu d'équilibre et il n'impose à personne ce que lui même ne ferait. Jéhovah connaît toutes choses car tout ce que l'on vit dans notre existence maintenant, il connaît le bien d'une action et la conséquence d'une mauvaise action et cela en toutes actions bonnes ou mauvaises.
      Pendant sa méditation sur la création, avant qu'il ait créé notre univers, Jéhovah a créé une matrice du bien et une matrice du mal. De ces deux matrices, il maria les deux essences, LE BIEN ET LE MAL, dans sa pensée créatrice mais cela fut comme une assemblage de tout les possibilités combinables, ainsi créer une symbiose parfaite entre le mal et le bien.  Il fonda une loi pour ces lois du mal et du bien. Cela fut pour créer la loi de toutes les énergies connues et inconnues à notre pensée, pour que seul le bien soit unanime entre chacunes d'elles. (Genèse 3:22a)
      Ces deux matrices devaient être maitrisées par Jéhovah lui même, avant de créer sa première création qui fut dévoilé en Proverbe 8:22à36. Jéhovah médita sur le bien de toutes choses et la conséquences de chaque choses. Il a vu comment la mauvaise union de deux éléments ou plus, pourrait devenir un danger pour l'équilibre de sa création et une bienfaisance parfaite dans un mariage uni et parfait DE TOUTES CHOSES.
      JÉHOVAH EST L'INSTIGATEUR  DU MARIAGE.
      Prenons une exemple: Imaginons un évènement où en assemblant deux liquides, qui sont opposés l'un à l'autre, qu'est ce qui pourrait en résulter et voir la conséquence de leur union, si nous ne prenons pas de précaution en les mélangent que se passera t'il?
      Voilà vous décidez de mélanger du lait avec du chlore, si vous feriez cela sans prendre conscience avant votre action, le danger de mélanger ces deux liquides. Votre vie pourrait être changé, par une conséquence très néfaste de cette action et résulter de brûlure sévèrent aux poumons et voir votre peau être brulée au troisième degrés pendant toute le reste de votre vie. Car en mélangeant ces deux liquides ensembles vous créez un réaction chimique qui créerait une bombe effervescente très dangereuse. Quand Jéhovah a médité sur le mariage de chaques éléments de son univers physique, particules, atomes et molécules, énergies, ect. Il a bien calculé chaques choses à sa pleine minutie, avant de commencer le début de sa création. Jéhovah usa de minutie et regarda toutes les formes de conséquences que l'union de deux contraires pourrait résulter dans le mariage de deux éléments ou qu'apporterait l'utilité de leur union à sa futur création. Alors Jéhovah qui est le Dieu de la création connaît toutes choses entre le bien et le mal, il connaît le chemin de l'équilibre parfait entre chaque formes d'énergies, matières, actions, pensées, désirs, émotions et sentiments...,.etc
      Allons ensemble en Exode 34:14 et dans ce verset je vais utilisé la version de 1985 ( Les saintes écritures traduction du monde nouveau) pour élaborer le thème de ce discours. 
      Exode 34 :14 allons lire  ensemble la partie b de ce verset.
      Moïse écrit: Par ce que Jéhovah dont le Nom est Jaloux,  c'est un Dieu jaloux.
      Comment dans ce verset, pouvons nous dire que Son Nom est Jaloux, car il est un Dieu jaloux ?
      Dans la bible nous distinguons Jéhovah comme un Dieu d'Amour et qu'il est la personnification de l'Amour mais ici, il est écris, qu'il est un Dieu jaloux et même son nom est "Jaloux "avec une majuscule. Dans le passage de 1 cor 13:4 à 8 a, il est écris que l'Amour véritable n'est pas jaloux.
      POURQUOI JÉHOVAH DIEU EST JALOUX ET QUE SON NOM EST JALOUX AVEC UNE MAJUSCULE? 
      COMMENT LA JALOUSIE PEUT - ELLE ETRE UNE QUALITÉ DE DIEU?
      Le thème "Jaloux" étymologiquement fait référence à une définition différente de notre pensée.
      "Jaloux" veut dire le sens étymologique (Le premier de toute chose, L'Unique.) Alors nous pouvons par cette définition dire que notre Dieu dont son nom est "Jaloux" représente véritablement son nom car il est le Premier Dieu et qu'Il est l'Unique Dieu universel, Créateur de l'univers et qu'il est le Seul à avoir toujours existé et qu'il est le seul vrai Dieu,  À PART LUI IL N'Y A PAS DE DIEU AUTRE QUE LUI. En pensant que Jéhovah son Nom serait "Jaloux" ce nom serait approprié car il est le seul Dieu et Unique Dieu de l'univers, IL EST LE SEUL À CONNAÎTRE TOUTES CONNAISSANCES ET SAGESSES, ETC. VOILÀ POURQUOI SON NOM EST JALOUX, PERSONNE NE CONNAÎT, LA CONNAISSANCE DE DIEU.
      Quand Jéhovah a créé Adam, il lui donna le nom de "Adam" dont son Nom est: "homme tiré du sol". Quand Jéhovah a assemblé, Eve , par l'assemblage d'une création moléculaire, car "Eve" fut issue de l'adn d'Adam, elle est devenue, la femme compatible parfaite pour Adam. Cette femme porta le nom de "Eve" qui veut dire : "vivre" car d'elle toutes les génération futur des humains seraient créé en son sein de procréation par le début de la naissances de ces enfant et de ces petits enfants. 
      Alors là signification du nom de Dieu "Jaloux" qui signifie "Premier de toute choses et l'Unique" Jéhovah le Dieu de l'Univers" le nom Jaloux devient réaliste à notre compréhension. Jéhovah veut que nous comprenions son Nom. Comprendre ainsi la raison de ce Nom "Jaloux" dans (Exode 34:14 partie b) QUI FUT RÉVÈLÉ PAR MOÏSE.
      Pourquoi Jéhovah est un Dieu jaloux et comment le thème de jaloux peut être une qualité de Jéhovah et comment le prouver?
      COMME AU DÉBUT DE CE DISCOURS, J'AI FAIT SORTIR UN POINT IMPORTANT DE PROVERBE 2:1 À 6  JÉHOVAH EST UN PÈRE AIMANT ET DANS CE PASSAGE CELUI QUI SUIT SON CHEMIN CONNAÎTRA LA SAGESSE, L'INTELLIGENCE ET LE DISCERNEMENT.
      Alors voyons ensemble comment la terme jaloux est une qualité de Jéhovah. 
      Le terme que Dieu est "jaloux" est apporté dans le verset d'Exode 34:14 comme une adjectif de protection. Ce terme"jaloux"est basé sur le fait que son Amour est parfait et l'Amour que Jéhovah apporte envers les humains de la terre et envers toutes sa Création et fait partie de la qualité du terme "jaloux". JÉHOVAH  a créé son dessein pour le voir grandir et vivre la joie de voir toute sa création jouïr de la vie et non de la mort. 
      Quand le Fils de Dieu est venu au monde qu'elle était l'émotion qui s'animait en lui.
      Allons en proverbe 8 :22 à 31 et regardons les paroles de Jésus:
      Dans ce texte, Jésus est détaillé au féminin car il est le complément de la création, et à la fin, il montre qu'il est un mâle.  Je vais approfondir ce point par la suite.
      Il est écris: Jéhovah m'a( produite) ( féminin) comme le commencement de son action (oeuvre), la plus ancienne de ses oeuvres, d'autrefois. Depuis des temps antiques on m'a établie dans ma position, depuis le début, depuis des temps antérieurs à la terre. J'ai été (enfantée)( féminin), quand il n'y avait pas de mer profonde,  quand il n'y avait pas de sources débordantes d'eau. Avant que les montagnes furent misent en place, avant les collines, j'ai été (enfantée)( Féminin),  alors qu'il n'avait fait la terre et ses champs, ou la première motte de son sol. Quand il a préparé le ciel, j'étais là. Quand il a dessiné l'horizon à la surface de l'eau, quand il a placé les nuages en haut, quand il fondé les sources des profondeurs, quand il a imposé à la mer un décret interdisant à son eau d'aller au delà de ce qu'il ordonnait, quand il a posé les fondement de la terre, j'étais alors près de lui comme (un habile ouvrier)( masculin). J'étais (celle) ( féminin) à qui il était particulièrement( attaché)( masculin), jour après jour. JE ME RÉJOUISSAIT TOUT LE TEMPS DEVANT LUI: je me réjouissait au sujet de sa terre devenue habitable et j'étais particulièrement (attachée) (comme une mère) aux fils des hommes. Esprit Saint COMME JÉSUS  LE FILS DIEU EST FÉMININ ET AUSSI COMME LE PÈRE MASCULIN CAR JÉHOVAH RESPECTE LE PRINCIPE DE L'OEDIPE DE LA VIE.
      LE FILS DE DIEU ÉTAIT COMME DÉTAILLÉ COMME UNE FEMME (VIERGE AVISEE) SOUMISE À DIEU ( ATTACHÉE) ( ATTACHÉ) À LUI EN TOUT TEMPS COMME UN ENFANT QUI AIME SON PÈRE. DANS LE verset 30 LÀ, IL MONTRE QU'IL EST UN HABILE OUVRIER. ALORS NOUS VOYONS QUE JESUS À CETTE ÉPOQUE était UN MÂLE TRAVAILLANT SA FÉMINITÉ, et sa MASCULINITÉ, pour quelle raison? Car Jéhovah est le Dieu Createur et Jésus est le complément de la création, IL EST LA LUMIÈRE , quand le Fils de Dieu réalisait les oeuvres que Jéhovah lui donnait, il travaillait sa masculinité (HOMME). Dans le verset 30 il, le Fils de Dieu, devient au masculin car il utilise un pronom masculin "Un." Alors le Fils de Dieu fut la première oeuvre de Dieu. Nous voyons ce même détaille dans sa dernière prière avec ses douze apôtres. En Jean 17:24 à  la fin du verset il est écris:  TU M'AS AIMÉ AVANT LA FONDATION DU MONDE. NOUS VOYONS ICI  QUE JÉSUS LUI MÊME DÉMONTRE QUE JÉHOVAH L'AIMAIT ET QU'IL ÉTAIT SA PREMIÈRE CRÉATION.  NOUS SAVONS QUE LE FILS DE DIEU SUIVAIT LES PAS DE SON PÈRE, CAR IL DIT: QU'IL ÉTAIT (ATTACHÉE)(féminin), AU FILS DES HOMMES. ALORS NOUS POUVONS AFFIRMER QUE JÉHOVAH NOUS AIMENT VRAIMENT CAR LE FILS AIME LES HOMMES ( femme et homme) PAR UNE ATTACHEMENT PARTICULIÈRE. COMME JÉHOVAH AIME SON FILS D'UN ATTACHEMENT PARTICULIER ( comme un Père)
      EN PROVERBE 8 : 30,31 LE FILS DE DIEU DÉMONTRE PAR SA PLEINE VOLONTÉ QU'IL SE RÉJOUISSAIT EN TOUT TEMPS AVEC SON PÈRE. IL AIMAIT ÊTRE AVEC LUI CAR IL DIT QU'IL ÉTAIT (ATTACHÉE et ATTACHÉ) EN PENSÉE (MASCULIN ET FÉMININ)
      À LUI, D'UNE MANIÈRE PARTICULIÈRE. ALORS NOUS POUVONS DISTINGUER QUE LE FILS AVAIT LE LIBRE ARBITRE ET AUSSI QU'IL AIMAIT JÉHOVAH CAR IL RESSENTAIT ÊTRE AIMÉ PAR SON PÈRE ET DIEU CRÉATEUR. 
      ALORS SI NOUS DISONS QUE JÉHOVAH EST UN DIEU JALOUX NOUS VOYONS ICI QUE LE FILS ÉTAIT HEUREUX ET NON EN PRISON OU DOMINÉ PAR DIEU D'UNE MANIÈRE POSSESSIVE. SON ATTACHEMENT À SON PÈRE ÉTAIT DE SA PROPRE VOLONTÉ. ÊTRE AVEC DIEU EST UN BONHEUR IMMENSE ET JÉSUS LE DÉMONTRE DANS CES VERSETS ET AUSSI QUE LE FILS PARTICIPAIT À L'OEUVRE DE SON PÈRE ET IL PARTICIPAIT À LA JOIE DU PÈRE ÉTERNEL ET VIVANT UN BONHEUR CONSTANT.
      (DANS LA LETTRE DE JEAN en Jean chapitre 1) JEAN nous révèle que Jésus participa à la création de toutes choses, il est devenu lumière  ( devenu UN PARTICIPANT EN TOUTES CHOSES DANS EXISTENCES DE TOUTES ÉLÉMENTS, QUE CONSTITUENT LA CREATION DE DIEU,  dans le monde physique de notre univers. Alors comme un enfant est enfantée par une mère, Jésus est une mère et un homme en action sur le modelage de tout ce qui fut créé sous la loi du Père Créateur de toutes choses , notre DIEU JÉHOVAH LE TOUT PUISSANT DONNA À SON FILS LA POSSIBILITÉ DE PARTICIPER AU DESSEIN DE DIEU CAR L'ESPRIT SAINT DE DIEU LUI DONNAIT LA PUISSANCE DE LE FAIRE ET DE PLUS DIEU PAR L'ESPRIT SAINT PRÉCISAIT TOUTES CRÉATIONS DU FILS SOUS LA LOI DE SON DESSEIN.
      LA TERME JALOUX EST UNE QUALITÉ DE DIEU. VOIR LE NOM JALOUX EN MAJUSCULE, EST QUE JÉHOVAH EST L'UNIQUE DIEU DE TOUT L'UNIVERS ET LE SEUL QUI A TOUJOUR EXISTÉ et LE SEUL QUI CONNAÎT TOUTES ASSEMBLAGES DE TOUTES CHOSES CAR SON FILS OINT FUT UN PARTICIPANT AU DESSEIN DE DIEU.
      COMMENT NOUS ENFANTS DE DIEU, POUVONS NOUS BÉNÉFICIER DE LA JALOUSIE DE NOTRE CRÉATEUR  ET DE LA PROTECTION DE SON NOM "JALOUX"
      NOUS QUI AIMONS JÉHOVAH, POUR BÉNÉFICIER DE SA QUALITÉ PROTECTRICE NOUS DEVONS SUIVRE CELUI QUI FUT LE PREMIER CRÉÉ DE LA CRÉATION. CES PAROLES NOUS INSPIRENT DE VOIR QUE LE FILS DE DIEU VIVAIT ET VIT TOUJOUR UN BONHEUR ULTIME AVEC NOTRE DIEU CRÉATEUR QUI EST JÉHOVAH. JÉSUS QUAND IL ÉTAIT SUR LA TERRE A DÉMONTRÉ LES PRINCIPES LES PLUS IMPORTANT POUR CONNAÎTRE LA JOIE D'ÊTRE AIMÉ ET ATTACHÉ À NOTRE CRÉATEUR, ÊTRE AIMER PAR JÉHOVAH.
      Jésus à dit: Jean 8 :32 et proverbe 2 :1 à 6 Vous connaîtrez la vérité et la vérité vous libèrera. Quand aux versets de ( proverbe 2:1 à 6) ce passage nous dévoile que nous devons avoir le désir de l'écouter, avoir une oreille attentive à sa sagesse, CRAINDRE JÉHOVAH, ouvrir son coeur à lui, de montrer notre intention à le connaître et demander par la prière la sagesse, l'intelligence et le discernement. 
      EN EXODE 34:14  NOUS DEVONS AIMER JÉHOVAH NOTRE DIEU ET DE L'ADORER LUI SEUL ET PERSONNE D'AUTRE, CAR IL N'Y AUCUN AUTRE DIEU, QUE LUI SEUL. ALORS NOUS VOULONS ÊTRE AIMÉ DE JÉHOVAH, NOUS DEVONS L'AIMER COMME UN FILS ET UNE FILLES DE TOUT CE QUI EST EN NOUS D'UN AMOUR VÉRITABLE.
      En (Proverbe 2: 7 à 11) Jéhovah précise sa jalousie,comme qualité positive, et démontre à qui Jéhovah partage la sagesse et ,à qui, il donne Sa protection. Lisons ces versets ensemble, il est écris: Il garde précieusement sa sagesse pratique pour les hommes droits; il est un bouclier pour ceux qui se conduisent avec intégrité. Il veille sur le sentier des justes, et il protègera le chemin des fidèles. Alors tu comprendras aussi ce qui est juste et droit et équitable et tu comprendras quelle est la bonne voie à suivre. Quand la sagesse entrera dans ton coeur et que la connaissance deviendra agréable à ton âme la capacité de réflexion veillera sur toi et te préservera tout les jours de ta vie.
      Nous voyons dans ces versets que Jéhovah est attaché aux hommes femmes et enfants, qui ont des qualités particulières.  Il garde précieusement la sagesse pratique pour les hommes droits. Jéhovah use de son adjectif de protection (Jaloux) de Dieu aux hommes qui manifestent,  non seulement la qualité de la droiture mais aussi celle de la qualité de l'intégrité. Il est un bouclier "" Jaloux"" contre le méchant . 
      JÉHOVAH EST UN DIEU JALOUX COMME RELATE EXODE 34:14: JÉHOVAH DEMANDE UN ATTACHEMENT SANS PARTAGE. JÉHOVAH EST UN DIEU DONT SON NOM EST JALOUX  CAR IL PARTAGE LA SAGESSE DE LA VÉRITÉ, DE L'INTELLIGENCE ET DU DISCERNEMENT VÉRITABLE AUX HOMMES , FEMMES ET ENFANTS AUX COEUR DROIT ET QUI AGISSENT AVEC INTÉGRITÉ VENANT DU COEUR ET D'UN AMOUR SINCÈRE .
      À TOUT CEUX QUI VEULENT DEVENIR ENFANT DE JÉHOVAH , LE SEUL VRAI DIEU, RESTONS COURAGEUX, OBÉISSANT, INTÈGRE, AVEC UNE CRAINTE SALUTAIRE DEVANT LE SEUL VRAI ET UNIQUE DIEU ET QUE NOTRE AMOUR POUR JÉHOVAH, SOIT FERME POUR AINSI BÉNÉFICIER DE VIVRE LA PROMESSE DE NOTRE ROI JÉSUS CHRIST SON OINT ET AINSI DE VIVRE HEUREUX DANS LE PARADIS DE LA PROMESSE DE VIVRE SUR UNE TERRE NOUVELLE  POUR TOUJOUR. PSAUME 37:29 .
      NE RENONÇONS DE AUCUNE MANIÈRE DE SERVIR NOTRE DIEU AVEC VIGUEUR D'UN COEUR REMPLIS D'AMOUR VÉRITABLE.
