simple truth that no one can object to is
"All is G-d, All is Good"
for the facts show this to be true in every aspect of human
existence. We all come into this world as an emanation of
the Infinite Spirit; the pure Spirit of the Infinite is the Life
of us. Even the most horrible of humans came into this
world as pure Spirit embodied in physical form. We are
created equal in the Spirit and this is accomplished only
through the Power of an Infinite Intelligence that is beyond
anything our human mind can conceive. The mystics have
told us that before we came into this incarnation we were first
an idea in the Mind of the Divine. This is somewhat true I
would suppose but we of course cannot know for sure how this
Intelligence births us from spirit to physical form.
The great Thomas Troward writes in the "Dore
of the great axioms in the new order of ideas, .... is that our
Thought possesses creative power, and since the whole
superstructure depends on this foundation, it is well to examine
it carefully. Now the starting point is to see that Thought, or
purely mental action, is the only possible source from which the
existing creation could ever have come into manifestation at
all, and it is on this account that this being so, our own mind
is the expression of a Divine Thought. The Divine Thought has
produced something which itself is capable of thinking; but the
question is whether its thinking has the same creative quality
as that of the Parent Mind (G-d Mind)."
thinking we direct our life for either good or bad. We all
have the opportunity to live the wonderful life but most of us
have been mesmerized by the world consciousness that our path
has become a journey with wins and losses along the way; some
heartaches too and disappointments as well as the thrill of
accomplishment and love.
In my browsing Social Media I came across something that caused
me to pause and think about morality. My definition of
morality is the Golden Rule; "do
unto others as you would have them do unto you"
with the added
"don't expect to receive something that
you are unwilling to give to another."
And these two pieces of simple wisdom are not that easy to live
by in the world that we find ourselves in today. But,
these are not what I found on Social Media. What I found
was this passage form "A Man Without a Country" by Kurt
reason, the most vocal Christians among us never mention the
Beatitudes (Matthew 5). But, often with tears in their eyes,
they demand that the Ten Commandments be posted in public
buildings. And of course, that's Moses, not Jesus. I haven't
heard one of them demand that the Sermon on the Mount, the
Beatitudes, be posted anywhere. 'Blessed are the merciful' in a
courtroom? 'Blessed are the peacemakers' in the Pentagon? Give
me a break!”
believe the Ten Commandments was written for a very primitive
people who were basically uncivilized and were necessary at that
era of history. The Beatitudes speaks to the truth that we
are inherently good through the nature of the Divine Spirit that
is the true Life of us. The Beatitudes is the morality
that we should all seek to live by no matter what our religion
or lack of religion for by doing so we shall realize more and
more of the wonderful life that is ours to experience.
Keep the Faith!
