Deep Motivation

Posted on

Being so motivated in media production
I praise my Lord and Saviour to awaken
My deep desire better
My inner self better
My heart and mind better
The new poetry in me to grow in Him better
To be raptured in His loving kindness
To be loved by Him
To love Him with all of my whole being

I was enjoying the short film and the talk by Talya Lavie, an Israelite filmmaker who is born in 1978, comes from an animation background and decides to do more films. She raises her funds through two Israel filmmaking foundations. Her first film ‘Zero Motivation’ wins Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Narrative Feature, and Nora Ephron Prize award in Tribeca Film Festival 2014. I learn from her that she believes in her own stories and persists in her own filmmaking journey by producing short animation and films. In her animation production, she doesn’t interact with people. However, there are many communications with people in her filmmaking journey. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Loom

Loom

Too much liberty deliberately puts mankind to
Take things for granted
Abuse own authority
Putting God’s will to care
Others and this earth
Will reap blessings
Take heed His instructions to
Love and tend this earth

Argh! I’m supposed to sleep, but “lack of movement” words with acronym ‘Loom’ drove me to jot this down then sleep. According to the free dictionary loom means in verbs

  1. To come into view as a massive, distorted, or indistinct image
  2. To appear to the mind in a magnified and threatening form
  3. To seem imminent; impend

Loom is explained in noun that it is a distorted, threatening appearance of something, as through fog or darkness. When we choose to live according to God’s instruction, His blessings are upon us.

Guilt

Guilt

Guilt

How many times are we motivated and/or driven by guilt?
Guilt is the most motivating factor for people to do good.
We need to identify true guilt and false guilt.
True guilt leads to repentance.
False guilt is lack of self-acceptance and believe not accepted by God.

Luke 3:7-9 (KJV)
Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Luke 5:31-32 (KJV)
And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

2 Corinthians 7:9-11 (KJV)
Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

Oxford advanced learner’s dictionary explains guilt very clearly. Guilt is the unhappy feelings caused by knowing or thinking that you have something wrong. Focus on Family explains the differences between true and false guilt. Their articles can be found http://www.focusonthefamily.com/lifechallenges/emotional_health/living_without_constant_guilt/healthy_guilt_vs_false_and_harmful_guilt.aspx and at http://www.focusonthefamily.com/lifechallenges/emotional_health/living_without_constant_guilt/the_origins_of_false_guilt.aspx.

Ego

Ego

Ego

Is ego or pride stopping us from reaching out to God?
Is ego or pride blinding us to the Truth?
Is ego or pride covering our eyes to see the world’s brokenness?
Is ego or pride covering our eyes to see our own frailty?
Is ego or pride preventing us from reflecting upon our motivations?
So can’t we push our ego aside?

In dictionary, ego means
1. the “I” or self of any person; a person as thinking, feeling, and willing, and distinguishing itself from the selves of others and from objects of its thought.
2. Psychoanalysis . the part of the psychic apparatus that experiences and reacts to the outside world and thus mediates between the primitive drives of the id and the demands of the social and physical environment.
3. egotism; conceit; self-importance: Her ego becomes more unbearable each day.
4. self-esteem or self-image; feelings: Your criticism wounded his ego.
5. (often initial capital letter) Philosophy

  • the enduring and conscious element that knows experience.
  • Scholasticism. the complete person comprising both body and soul.

Albert Einstein did mention,
“More the knowledge
Lesser the ego,
Lesser the knowledge
More the Ego”

Basically, ego means “I” is more important and what is inside will come out. Some people will tend to praise themselves and look down upon people by finding their faults. Until to the point that I can’t stand them and telling a friend to try to look at people’s goodness side. Nobody is perfect.

Prayers are Revised On: 15 December 2011 at 1:43am

On Tuesday, 22 November 2011 at 8:34am “Endure day by day with the strength from Christ” came to me as I’m going through stressful times in my life because I have been trying to balance my life.

As I was praying during my quiet times on Thursday, 1 December 2011 “Set my heart’s motivation right before You, O Lord” came from my heart to the Lord, recognizing my weakness especially in my emotions.
