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.
Nothing has impressed me more, or impacted me more, in the entire body of work known as the With God books than the Three Core Concepts of Holistic Living given to us: Awareness, Honesty andResponsibility
Difficult as it may be for most of us to believe, we are already at the end of Week 1 of the New Year. Just 51 weeks left and we'll be right back where we were last week--at the end of another cycle. Later in this Bulletin I will offer my reflection on what I was thinking last Saturday night, New Year's Eve, as the clock struck 12, and an idea that came to me on Sunday morning as I crawled out of bed and into the New Year for good.
When I was a child, machines were made to last forever. That was one of their chief selling points. If you bought a Kenmore washing machine, you could count on it lasting a lifetime. If you bought a Maytag, you could include your children's lifetime. That was before Planned Obsolescence.
Everything is happening for my own good. It could be no other way in the Kingdom of God. This is the startling statement made in The Holy Experience, which I consider to be one of the most important books I have ever written, following my Conversations with God encounter. What CWG led me to at last understand is that our life here is not what I, and many people, thought it was.
The views and the experience of humanity on so many things have been impacted by what our teachers have told us about God and about God’s. Today we shall look at what many of us have been told that GOD WANTS regarding Will and Suffering. And then, finally, we’ll explore God’s desires regarding Morality and Death.
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!
Ever think about that? How would you behave if you thought you could get away with anything, if you thought you would get a "pass" from everyone around you because you were just so innocent and so cute?
