We are the only planet to have free will. Proper use of Freedom. My brothers remember that you have been called to live in freedom – but not a freedom that gives rein to the flesh. Out of love (unity) place yourself at one another’s service. The whole law has found its fulfillment in this one saying: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” If you go on biting and tearing one another to pieces, take care! You will end up in mutual destruction – Galatians 5:13-15.
In origin and nature man is good. He later sinned out of his failure to remember the responsibilities which went with his freedom. Some things he may do, and others he may not do. Human failings gradually built up conditions of luxury, oppression, warfare, exploitation and ignorance. Dark ages of superstition and materialism set in and covered over the awareness of the existence of spiritual wisdom, which earlier had been innate in all humanity. Thus the human spirit became separated from its own heritage and inner despair and disorientation destroyed its natural integrity.
The coming of Jesus, The Christ, did not just happen. His coming was foreordained, prophesied and prepared for through the world ages of Time cycles. Jesus built his personality from sensed thinking to Mind Knowing with full consciousness to know that man lives in God, and that God also lives in man. “I do nothing of myself. It is not I but the Father in me that does the work.” Clearly this means whatever Jesus was doing was the work of something more than human effort. Jesus used powers no man could have possessed at that time because his consciousness was connected to the Source of Power.
Jesus was aware of the limitations of his human personality. He was tested for all the failings which all human beings are capable of. When Jesus reached full maturity in consciousness, he reversed the usual order of things and established perfect mastery by unwavering obedience to the Universal One. When he asked our Father to forgive us because we don’t know what we are doing, he knew we had not yet unfolded our consciousness enough to know that no matter how much we try to avoid it, in the end our wrong actions will have to be accounted for in the tally Book of Life. His Life Purpose was to manifest the Name of God in human consciousness in order to make it possible for humankind to rebind with God and bring us back to our origin by imitating the example he gave us to follow.
We are all tested. The people who are grasping the significance of Jesus’ life are beginning to accept obstacles as tests of our powers. What seems to be evil is life presenting us with an opportunity to think, to analyze, and to break through one more limitation beyond what we are allowing ourselves to imagine. Man has no enemy but ignorance and each man must learn this for himself sooner or later. Each one is responsible to master his own single belonging. No one can do for another what he must learn to do for himself.
Man has been filling the world with complicated machinery while he has been neglecting himself. Man appears to have shelved his inner life while he gives his attention to the conquest of matter. Our greatest advancement has been in the art of killing people and wiping out whatever stands in the way of man’s desire to rule. He has left the understanding of himself and his own faculties to others who are uncovering latent human powers, especially the capacity of the human mind to function in and as a part of the fourth dimension. The significance of much of this work has not yet been grasped by the public.
Man is made in the spiritual image of God and man is given free right to choose to be reunited in consciousness with the Originating Power by building each day in fulfillment of that part of God’s Purpose that is ours to fulfill. Reincarnation is a basic necessity to understand the principle that life and growth to maturity are one. We are a part of God and we grow our immortal soul by unfolding a folded pattern through reincarnations in order to comprehend the vastness of our own divinity.
The biggest problem in the world today is lack of educating new straight-knowledge as it unfolds higher dimensions of wisdom and understanding. The biggest battle ahead is the battle between the spiritual and physical natures of man. The unfolding of the physical nature of man brought dishonesty with greed for power, physical possessions and entertainment for the senses. Physical instincts prevail today and world leaders feed fear to the masses. Fear dominates the world of today. While fear is in the world love cannot also be. Love can never dominate the world until man knows the Light of the spirit within him. Wrong thoughts, ideas and unbalanced actions are the cause of war, violence, disease and disastrous occurrences.
All beings have Soul – the Life Force that circulates through the organism of vegetable, animal and human. All souls are part of the one Soul the cosmos. The Lord God formed man – male and female – of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Our bodies die but our souls do not die. Life is the Light of spiritual existence of men transcending the physical existence of man.
Spirit rules matter. Man must first of all realize he is in prison. So long as he fails to realize this, so long as he thinks he is free to do whatever he desires to do, no one can help liberate him by force, against his will, in opposition to his wishes. It is possible only as a result of education that goes beyond three dimensional consciousness of five-sensed thinking.
Accepted beliefs have been programmed in human consciousness to live life the way our ancestors lived. It is shocking, upsetting and it makes people angry to have to look at what we are just beginning to wake up to see. Life is changing and we are living in a time when everything we thought we knew so well is not enough to manage life that is pressing beyond the limits of three-dimensional, five-sense thinking into the fourth dimension to replace Old World abstractions with concrete New World Reality. We will have to learn we are all being shaken in order to awaken each man (male and female) to know his own Nobleness and Worth. The need to know the universe of God for what it is instead of what our senses have made us to believe is critical at this time.
It is difficult to forgive ourselves because, like Paul when his mind was completely closed, based on theory instead of experience or experiment, until his world of thought was turned upside down, in our hearts we are doing what we think we need to do in this every man for himself world.
God gives every human being the right of free will to choose to think any thought or perform any action. The invisible universe absolutely controls the visible universe. God holds the right to balance any unbalanced action by an equal reaction. We all have Unfinished Business, or Karma, that will one day have to be balanced in the Book of Life by God’s Law of Undeviating Justice in this incarnation or the next.
Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. We must learn that we are always fully responsible for our choices to ourselves, to our fellow man, as well as to the Creator. No man (male and female) has the right to deny or destroy another’s right to free will. When we mature human consciousness to know with full consciousness that all humanity is One Whole Body, human beings will not choose to destroy one unit of the Body of which each one of us is a part.
