"What do you suggest, 'make me lovable?' what is this approximately 'make me lovable'? Who makes a decision who's 'lovable'?"
Why am I revolting opposed to the place this can be going? I…am not…lovable… it's been ingrained into me that i'm no longer… i've been instructed that i'm now not… and i've agreed and authorized and lived out of the"fact" that i'm no longer… the concept i'm… turns every thing i assumed I had perceived and got to be true…upside down.
Is this the "veil being faraway from the heart"?
…What falls apart…disintegrates… or "produces static" or "interferes" in order that I in truth can't "get it" or "receive it" whilst I pay attention someone…anyone… even Jesus Christ…even God Himself…say the phrases:
"You are lovable.""
