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?
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.
I continue this week my observations as contained in The Holy Experience, a book I wrote that explains the Conversations with God encounter. I said it before and I'll say it again. All my life I have been trying to figure out...Who am I? What am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing? Is there any reason for what I am doing? Does anybody care? Is there any outcome, other than the doing of it? What is the point of life? The Holy Experience brings us the answers to those questions. The Holy Experience is the answer.
To hope is to yearn for a thing to happen. To believe is to trust that it will happen. To know to is to have no doubt that it will happen. When we "know" something, we don't have to trust. Trust is not necessary. Hope is even further removed.
