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.
When God has brought the knowingness of the absolute into complete experience through us and we are simply being God,” the duality will end. That is correct. “Will we simply be perfect love, life, and light and will fear, death, and darkness have no existence?” Yes, that is also correct. “Is this what is meant by the teaching of many metaphysical schools that there is no evil?” Bingo again.
However when you experience the absolute, and reside in perfect love with the knowingness that it is all there is, you will be satiated. You will be complete. Happy. Content. And ready to start all over again. For you—me, we—are God “godding!” We are life living. We are That Which Is, becoming. And once we have become what we seek and choose to be, we will unbecome it once again!
Why is life turning out the way it is turning out? Why is love so often so hard to find, and then to keep? Why is goodness and kindness and compassion and even a smiling face sometimes so hard to find in our day-to-day experience?
When I was a young boy I lived in a black and white world. It appeared to me as if things were either one way or another. I saw very little gray in between the black and white, and I certainly did not envision a world in which two sets of facts which were obviously contradictory could exist simultaneously in the same space and both be true.
We are not paying enough attention to our health. Not as individuals, and certainly not as a planet. This is the single most important factor in our physical lives, and most of us are simply not paying enough attention to it.
Many humans have been told that What God Wants is for sexual union to be experienced only with one’s spouse for the purposes of procreation and the expression of love. One result of this teaching: Millions of people believe that sex may absolutely never be experienced in any way that deliberately prevents conception, and that while sex is wonderful, to experience sex simply for pleasure with no possibility of procreation is against the will of God and, therefore, “unnatural,” immoral, shameful and a giving in to baser instincts.
The combining of pleasure and shame in this construction has produced chronic emotional confusion: wonder, excitement and passion, yet embarrassment, fear and guilt, about sexual desires and experiences.
To me the CWG message that We Are All One means exactly what it says. The conversation elaborates, telling us that All Things are One Thing. There is only One Thing, and all things are part of the One Thing there is.
Recently the father of one of our staff members at the CwG Foundation celebrated his Continuation Day. Of course, it was a time of sadness for her loss, and we all felt it and did our best to send her our love. But the event also brought into my consciousness again the whole subject of death, and I turned then to the extraordinary book in the CwG series, HOME WITH GOD in a Life That Never Ends.
