…. Having to explain the virtues isn’t as easy as some of the other ranks, we start with the explanation of where this title first came to be. The virtues are characteristics from the creator himself, a list which I will explain on my page as well. It is important for those wishing to connect with their Angelic self as they find a balance within this life to follow the virtues. It is good to remember that there isn’t any difference when it comes to the virtues other than the way they may be pronounced. Living a life where you follow the path amongst the chaos on Earth as you live by the Virtues intend isn’t always easy. For this world is filled with influences that may lead you astray, following a path of darkness can cost you to lose yourself before you realize it. What does living by the Virtues intend exactly means for us; do not just say you wish the best for all but act upon it. Some people struggle, they have made career choices they do not stand by, they have made choices they can’t let go off and let’s not forget the peer pressure everyone experiences from child to adult. It can be difficult to be a good person even when one intends to do what is right for the other. It has become too easy for those with negative intentions to manipulate others, no matter what race, religion or what stature you have on this planet misleading others seems to come with ease. What if we can’t trust those we built trust in, what if we cannot turn to our leaders for they only search for power what does this leave us with; chaos.
Those who have chosen to live their life according to the Angelic Virtues are often put down, made fun of and disrespected for no apparent reason other than they were different. This is something I’ve experienced my entire life, as a child I was the outcast often seen as different, silent never knowing that within my heart and within my soul I was trying to understand what was going on around me. I had the ability to see spirits, Angels, Spirit guides, Auras and other things which would distract me so though I seemed strange and quiet I was merely staring and wandering about the things I saw without understanding it exactly. It was during my teen years that making friends was even harder than when I was a child this was because I was seen as different and would bully me for being a quiet, smart goody two shoes who hardly ever broke the rules. There had been times I was alone and I was fine with that, I didn’t want to be part of the general group I was happy being with those who represented the outcast. In the end it got me the life I have lived, I do not back down, I take risks and sometimes they will hurt and go wrong but other times they have brought me beautiful moments that made me who I am. Being part of a group, being popular, fitting societies boxes just isn’t meant for me. It is my life just as your path is yours and no one else’s, you are the one who needs to live it and love it. Now that I have shared a glimpse of how I wandered along the path trying to live my life in a way that I felt comfortable with the help of the Virtues it is time to go over these Virtues.
Faith is the first virtue. True faith is belief in the right things, including the virtues! Faith in God is upmost. True faith in God is not questioning or having doubts. It’s just knowing that your needs will be fulfilled or that there will be an answer to your prayers, no matter how long it takes. And I say that because sometimes it does take a great deal of time for your prayers to be answered. Our creators and the angels who work for them, have to be able to find the perfect timing in which to deliver the results of your prayer. Sometimes it takes having to alter people, places, and many things… To make room for your prayer request. Once you ask for something, you just have to know that they love you unconditionally and understand your needs. Know that they will come through. You should have faith in many other things too. Like for instance, your family. It’s hard to have faith in your family because people have a tendency to at times let you down. That’s when you turn your faith towards the heavens. Perhaps there is some higher reason as to why your loved one let you down or disappointed you in the first place. Know that God works in mysterious ways.
Hope is making a positive future outlook, that good will prevail. Hope goes with faith, because having faith means that you hope in the results coming true in the future. Hope is something you should never let go of because, if you feel a lack of hope then you don’t have faith in much of anything. That leads to depression and feelings of hopelessness. Right now in this day and time, many are feeling hopelessness. Hopelessness is caused by constant disappointment in life. One failure after the other, or one mistake after the other, can lead to obstacles and hardships on your path. When things do not seem to get better, many start to feel hopeless and they think that things will never get better at all. But the truth is, is that everything happens for a reason. If you continue having obstacles and hardships, perhaps this is a sign that you are not moving in the right direction. Obstacles only occur as a signal to let someone know that they need to change their direction in life. Obviously if things are going wrong, then you are not on the right path. Some obstacles also happen to test you. If you have hope in the heavens and their wisdom and you can see what it it’s all trying to teach you, then you will continue to have faith. Tests occur on your path when you make a promise to yourself, to heaven, or to someone else. Our creator is omnipotent and omnipresent so he sees all things. Even when you make a promise or want to change. He tries to help you, by testing you to see if your mind is in the right place and if you are even ready. Have faith and hope in yourself too.
Charity is concern for, and an active help of others. In the universe there is a law called, the “Law of even exchange”. What you put out into the universe, you ultimately will receive back. If you are not giving anything, then you are probably most likely making it so nothing good comes your own way. When people only worry about their own needs and struggles, then that is placing more focus on self. And if that is the case, that is called selfishness. Yes, we live in a dog eat dog world. It is the survival of the fittest here, for sure. But the truth is, that we can all survive much better if we all pitch in to help one another.
This is so that everybody is helping each other and everyone receives. If each person only worries about themselves, there is a good chance if they are not receiving everything that they absolutely need in life. But when you have somebody to take care of you, then you can be sure that you are going to be OK. In other words, if you look out for me, and I look out for you, everybody gets taken care of. We should want to be the better change, that we wish to see in the world. In knowing what struggle and hardships are like, we should strive to want to play a part in easing the hardships and struggles of those around us so that they can find happiness or at least have support. Charity is not just in giving money. You can donate your time, your wisdom, your comfort, and your support to anyone needing it. Or, you can give some goods of yours, that you no longer need to someone who does now need them. Even donating your time to help in a cause, is a form of charity.
Fortitude is never giving up. This goes with faith, hope and charity because you have to have faith in your relationship with Heaven and in others that you love. Then you must place hope in the faith, that things will all work out for the best later on. Knowing that and keeping that outlook, makes it easier to hang on. Be strong. Things may not happen when you want them to, but they happen right when you need them to. Even if you think you need it now, the heavens may see otherwise. Have faith.
Justice is being fair and equal with others. You also have to be just with yourself too. Just is having a form of fairness and balance in your dealings with others. For example, if you look at a person overall, you cannot form an opinion of them, without being just. You have to see the good and the bad and weigh them out, before making a final decision of someone. And you cannot judge them either. Judgement is seeing what a person is all about, and forming a negative opinion about them as a result. No matter what a person has done, or their characteristics, you should only have love for them because you are not a perfect person fully, yourself. Just like you would want to be loved anyway despite your flaws, you have to love others for theirs. However, this doesn’t mean that you should not be aware of those flaws. Being aware of them helps you to safeguard yourself from being taken advantage of, lied to, or hurt. Justice is also being impartial. Heavenly father is impartial. This means that he sees all the same way, and copes with everyone according to weighing out the scales in seeing if their heart, mind, body, and soul worked in harmony together in the mistake that was made, or the good deed that was carried out. Anyone can be nice due to their mind wanting others to view them as righteous. Likewise, anyone can do a good deed from their heart without asking their mind if it was logically necessary. You see? The same applies in making mistakes or sinning. Were the layers of self-working in harmony? If not, then the entire person is not guilty. He judges justly. You have to treat yourself with this same justice too. Weigh things out for yourself, in order to make better choices. Doing things like lying against someone, or betraying them, gossiping, stealing, cheating, or forming a negative outlook on someone without having all of the facts, are things that are not fair and in turn are not just.
The virtue of having prudence is taking care of and using moderation in all areas of life. This includes, gambling, money, spending, using recreational substances or alcohol, sexual intercourse, and anything else that a person can get overly compulsive with. 1 Corinthians 14:40 states, “But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way”. This is prudence. Prudence is having a just and balanced way of going through life, and making sure to not be over excessive in the things that you do. Today, many take things way too far. Video games are played for hours. People spend all of their money on shopping gambling and food. Some, eat over excessively. Others, drink and get high too much. There are even people who have sex excessively. The virtues add prudence because like I had said in my other blog, if one area of your life is given too much attention to, then all of the others becomes unbalanced and obstacles are formed. However, if you balance what you do, and what you put your time into, you can have a well-balanced life. Anything that you put more time and energy into becomes your God because what you put first in your life, is what you basically worship. Matthew 6:24 states, “No man can serve two masters: for either he. will hate the one, and love the other; or else. he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon”. In other words, if you place more time in one thing, then you love that one thin most. And as a result, your time and energy will go toward that instead. That is what worship is in a sense. Balance is prudence. Make equal time for all things and do not be excessive.
Displaying temperance is having the moderation of using the needed things in your life, and on the other hand exercising abstinence from things which are not needed. When people cannot prioritize over the things that they need and overwhelm themselves with adding the things that they do not need, their lives become way out of balance and they start feeling stress and frustration. That is not temperance at all. Temperance is being calm and peaceful while handling one thing at a time. This is much like the serenity prayer. “Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Temperance is hard because everyone wants to continue keeping up with everything to get everything that they need to, complete. However, this is unwise because most of the time it is going against having justice for yourself, and it is not displaying prudence to take on too many things while in a rush in your life. Your life is valuable enough to take your time.
The virtues help safeguard you from committing the seven deadly sins which I will do an article about on this site soon. For now, if you want to live according to the virtues but have difficulty, please enroll in our Angelic mentoring. For now, just know that it takes a true want to live according to better values, and being a better person. It may make you separate from the world, but hey we want to go to heaven anyway and that’s not on Earth after all.
