This morning I had to face a conundrum. Seemingly a problem without a solution. I firmly believe that the Universe is the source of generosity which manifest in peoples’ lives. Yet, the problem remained.
Then, as so often, Yeshûa, a man who 2000 years ago knew truths to which I only now aspire, gave me the answer. People who refuse to take responsibility for their thoughts, let alone actions, claim that “Jesus saved them from a fate worse than death.”
Well… yes, but not in the way they imagine.
Yeshûa made His salvation contingent on us. He quite simply said: “As you sow, so shall you reap”. Or to put it more poetically, (in Galatians 6, King James Version),
“Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
And… He assures, “God cannot be mocked…”
So, my friends, Yeshûa did not save us by dying on the cross, but by giving us the knowledge which will assure our salvation. Not quite the same as religionists claim, though, in essence, he restated the Law of Karma. The Law of Cause and Effect.
As for people who assert Yeshûa’s divine nature, they are right, of course. There are a few phrases in the Bible, a source which they claim is infallible, which, nevertheless, demand attention.
First, Yeshûa claimed that everyone who conforms to the will of the father are children of the Most High. Hence He, and all people who obey the Universal Laws, are children of God.
Thus, surely, Yeshûa could be no less than a Son of God, allowing that God is his father, who is in heaven, which is within him and within each one of us.
All we need do is discover it within us.
In the religious sense, Yeshûa was a quintessential atheist. He did not recognize any deity other than his father, in heaven, within the depth of his consciousness. His concept of the Creator was never externalized, and by asserting that “his father is in spirit”, he equated the Creative Force to omnipresent, eternal, inexhaustible, indestructible Energy. (See my blog dated 18/12/2017)
So does the Universe endow us with abundant, inexhaustible generosity out of inherent ‘goodness’? Or do we believe that such generosity is sine qua non characteristic of the omnipresent, eternal, inexhaustible, indestructible Creative Force which responds to the energy generated by acts of faith. It seems that the Creative Force can metamorphose into any rate of vibrations, resulting in any form of energy or matter. There is, however, one aspect of the Creative Energy that must be taken into account.
It is neither ‘good’ nor ‘bad’.
It has no ‘human’ characteristics. Even as a knife can kill, or save lives in the hands of a surgeon, so the Energy can be used or misused. That is why Yeshûa warned us about the consequences. We can sow food or poison.
I merely sow seeds of faith in the generosity of the Universe. It works. Always. Moving mountains would seem easy…
However, there is a catch.
To be ‘god’, we must act like ‘God’, and that’s not as easy as it sounds. Inter alia, we must be able to consciously manipulate Energy of which all ‘things’ are made.
