It has been made very clear to me that every thought, word and action in the life of any physical being in the universe originates in one of two places-what we call, in our language here on Earth, love or fear. These are the original Binary Numbers of the Universe. They are the "0" and the "1" of the computer program of Life Itself.
In my life there has been no greater challenge than the challenge of relationships. I am speaking here now of romantic relationships, although all of my relationships—parental, familial, personal, business—have been a test for me from the very beginning.
So I'd like to look at a question this week that people all over the world, people of all faiths and traditions, have been asking for a very long time. For over 2,000 years, in fact...Who was this man called Jesus?
I spoke in this space last week about the fact that loneliness is the biggest social issue on our planet today. I said that we’ve been living in a world of increasing isolation, where extended families have been disappearing and the opportunities for closeness with others have been vanishing.
Love is a Natural Emotion. When it is allowed to be expressed, and received, by a child, normally and naturally, without limitation or condition, inhibition or embarrassment, it does not require anything more. For the joy of love expressed and received in this way is sufficient unto itself. Yet love which has been conditioned, limited, warped by rules and regulations, rituals and restrictions, controlled, manipulated, and withheld, becomes unnatural.
The so-called “Law of Attraction” has gotten a lot of attention in recent years. I call this phenomenon the Process of Personal Creation — and it doesn’t always “work” the way it is “advertised” when it is called the “Law of Attraction.”
I find it interesting that among the questions I am asked the most are questions on abortion. I think that people really want to know what God thinks about this issue, so that they can settle all this for themselves once and for all.
The first thing I want you to know is that God makes no judgment about these (or any other) behaviors.
There is, therefore, also no punishment. So anyone looking for a God of judgment, condemnation and punishment is going to be very disappointed in the God who talked with me. The second thing I want to say is that all behaviors are classified by us as “good” or “bad” depending upon who and what we are trying to be. That is, every value judgment we here on Earth make is based on a value system which is constructed around our own personal goals. This system has nothing to do with whether a thing is “right” or “wrong”, “good” or “bad” objectively, but only subjectively.
Let me give you some examples.
