There was a man who was moved to his depths by the things he saw around him in the world. Such opposites, such seeming contradictions and an apparent battle for control between the “forces of good and evil. How can this be he thought. Is this all there is to this short life experience? To be born, deal with s–t, and die; with some good thrown in to ease the pain?
Searching, always searching for that “something” to fill the gap, the empty place inside. What is it that makes it all make sense, and what are these voices I hear that lead me in two seeming opposite directions? How do I find balance, understanding, direction, peace…and what is it I truly need to fill this empty space? There are so many teachings, perceptions, concepts and theories. Am I really part of all this or just some limited concept of what I AM?
The desire, the teachings, the quest eventually guided the man to seek within himself, where somehow he instinctively knew there was a connection to the infinite. He studied the coin and realized there were 2 sides, but only ONE coin….The yin/yang, but only ONE symbol. So perhaps things are not actually as they seem……. but what about evil and the duality that is such a part of this sojourn……….There must be one who knows…I will ask, seek, knock…………..
God, Life, Being…why is there evil? I have found through my quest that you are perfect, that as a loving father(as I have tried to be)you would not create things that would harm or hinder me in my expression of myself. Lessons yes, but eternal torment, torture by others, murder, disease and finally non-existence….what’s the point?
So the man went to it was quiet, away from the world and it’s demands. He denied the senses and the body and focused on that part within that must be the connection to the ALL, to God…He asked…who am I, why am I here, what of this duality the world teaches?……………………………………………………………..silence……….
And God answered and said “my beloved child, you have remembered me and that is the first step. You seek to know who you really are and that is the second step. You want to be what I created to be and that is the third step. The final step will you letting Me be Me through you, and that will change the way you see the world and how you react with it. It will help change the world, for what you do affects all because you are all One. You have learned it is difficult, at best, to use the finite to explain the Infinite, to take an experience and put it into words. Though it has been done many times to help you understand, those teachings have been twisted because the experience was not fully realized and then shared. Translation and opinions were used instead because the ego(your belief we are separate)does not want to relinquish it’s acquired reality.
The Truth is, we are not separated and never have been, nothing can change that! What makes this separation seem real is that you THINK we are. This comes from the experience in the material plane, the finite, the home as it were, of the self. Your true Self knows only Oneness and perfection and that all things are the expression of the One Life…that there is One coin. This experience came about with your desire to know good and bad, duality, the CONCEPT that separation was possible. The body is the expression of that concept, the infinite confined. This was, is, the use of your free will, your ability to be co-creator, to express My will and purpose. You are a seed planted in the soil of earth(material world) and to grow up through the darkness of the soil and bear fruit richly. The experiences are to teach you there is another way to SEE the world.
The path to remember has been provided, created along with your original choice, and has nothing to do with “religion”. The path is an inner journey and requires only that you would let that part of you that knows teach you. It is a simple path that always gives you a choice, two voices that would show you the way. The voice of the self(ego) stands for separation and the belief in duality; and the voice of the Self that stands for unity and the reality of Oneness. The choice is always yours and everything you feel you need has already been provide. If you would know the origin of evil….look within….If you would help to remove it from this experience refuse to give it power, in yourself and in others. Listen instesd to the voice that teaches Love, peace(of mind) and Oneness.
I have given you life, share it. I have given you everything, find it and use it to create a world based on My Divine purpose….the perfect expression of Myself. Is that not a worthy goal? Sow the right seeds and the harvest will be great and shared by ALL. You have been told to “seek first the Kingdom(your true home) and all else will be added”, what better path to follow than to find who you really are……and BE that……….Love is the key……………
