Here I am!

Self

It is then, as it appears, the greatest of all lessons to know one’s self.

For if a man knows himself he will know God.

—–+—–

Having come to know himself a man finds the kingdom of heaven within him; and conversely, having found this within them, men rise to to a yet higher self-knowledge.

The tree of Life

– Revelation 2:7 –

“Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

——-+——-

– Genesis 2:9 –

And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

——–+——-

– Genesis 3:22-24 –
And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.

After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

Holy, holy, holy

– Revelation 4:8 –

—-+—-

Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord God Almighty,’

who was, and is, and is to come.”

I wonder why belief…

I was thinking…

Why belief?

If an architect is to build a structure that stands, the calculations have to be based on a discovered and proved mathematics.

Otherwise it will not stand.

So Brahma says the world is 5000 years old, the cycle repeats identically…that is – it’s on grooves already written for you and you cannot change the tracks you are on, and you will find yourself on the same track 5000 years from now – identically…

And Jesus says Faith can move a mountain…

And we believe women should be in skirts and cannot lead men in church because…sin…

And it’s wrong to worship on Sunday, it must be Saturday…

And so on and so forth…

Yet – we have to believe in order to be saved…

And we could believe anything…

Why is belief is required?

Why couldn’t this game just have been about discovering the Truth and living by it?

Somehow it is not true that the world was created in seven days.

It is not true that only Brahmins get to the Golden Age.

It is not true that there are the Chosen – and the reprobate are preselected.

It is not true that Buddhism is all there is.

It is not true that the world is ending tomorrow.

Or in 1000 days.

Or in 2036.

Or that homosexuals and divorcees and fornicators are damned.

Or that Hail Mary’s will save our soul.

Or that we can shape our thoughts and ascend slowly to highly enlightened beings who don’t need to eat – and will walk on water here on Earth before we die.

It is not true beyond good and evil.

Sometimes I think – I get it. Believing in God and doing religion is about refining Spirit so only good is left.

But then I’m handed a pamphlet that says; don’t have sex, study so you can shew, we are the only ones and these are our rules.

Sometimes God is simpler. And free.

Available everywhere.

Believe in just me – ask me to help you be good – die.

Just that.

All these rules are your thing.

You can change them.

Physics will not change. Nor will Chemistry. What Science discovers as probably true, is probably true if it keeps happening.

The Earth is round.

There is not a single right way.

Homosexuals are not wrong.

Use belief in your Spiritual adventure. Let belief change your life.

But belief will not change the Truth.

How do we know which belief is the right belief?

Christian? Muslim? Hindu?

So.

I believe.

But I’m not stupid.

Children of God

– 1 John 3:1 –

—-+—-

See how very much our heavenly Father loves us, for he allows us to be called his children—think of it—and we really are! But since most people don’t know God, naturally they don’t understand that we are his children

Love God

– 1 John 2:15-18 –

—–+—–

15 Do not love the world or anything that belongs to the world. If you love the world, you do not love the Father. 16 Everything that belongs to the world—what the sinful self desires, what people see and want, and everything in this world that people are so proud of—none of this comes from the Father; it all comes from the world. 17 The world and everything in it that people desire is passing away; but those who do the will of God live forever.

The Enemy of Christ

18 My children, the end is near! You were told that the Enemy of Christ would come; and now many enemies of Christ have already appeared, and so we know that the end is near.
