gospel of one; letters of aul

Hello Everyone; Namaste:

We are continuing with chapter 3, paragraph 6 in the letter to the Omans in the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"God is always communicating with us in one way or another. He has shown us the best way to live many times over, but we haven't been good listeners, and even when we have been good listeners, we haven't been good doers. God has communicated with everyone who has ever lived on earth. No one person or religion, or ethnic group, or country has a corner on God. God has chosen everyone, everything. Indeed, God is everyone, everything."

Commentary: God communicates in the still, small voice within us, the voice of our conscience that tells us if we are doing right or wrong or somewhere in between. The voice of God comes from within us. But if we don't listen to that voice, or if we can't discern it clearly, then God speaks to us through our experiences and our emotions. God can speak to us through other people. God speaks to us through life as it plays itself out. God is speaking to us directly and indirectly all the time. God is talking about being our highest and best self, always transcending ourself and moving with the river of life.

In this Christmas season the universal spirit of Christ speaks to us about peace on earth and goodwill to all people. Can we keep the love of Christ foremost all year long? If we all remember that we are all identities in God and that what we do to others we actually do to ourselves, then I believe it will be easier to keep up that love.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, Namaste:

We are continuing with Chapter three, paragraph five in the letter to the Omans in Gospel of One; Letters of Aul:

"God has sent us many messengers throughout history who have told us about the oneness of life. People have raised themselves up by the grace of God into enlightenment. They have tried to tell us the wonderful truth about life, about God. We have treated some of these messengers very roughly, such as Jesus Christ. But we have listened to them eventually and much good has come out of it. Nevermind if many have misunderstood, or have not lived up to the teachings. The bright lights of Krishna, Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Guru Nanak, Lao Tzu, and Confucius, to name a few, have guided and inspired many people to live in beneficial ways."

Commentary: The great religious teachers of the past are not fighting it out in heaven to see whose religion will prevail. All of these teachers were human beings who raised themselves up to understand many great truths about God and Life. They taught their lessons to a people and a culture of specific times and locations. Most of their teachings are eternal truths, but not everyone has been receptive to them, then or now. Yet the light from these great teachers still illuminates the path for billions of people. Most of these great teachers have reached the ascended state and work together to help all life on earth.

Ponder the ways that you are one with all life, if you think that you are separate, try to think if that is even possible. We are made of them same stuff that stars are made of.

gospel of one; letters of aul

Hello Everyone; Namaste;

We are continuing with chapter 3, paragraph 4 in the letter to the Omans from the book, "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"So where do we really stand? Do we who believe in the oneness of all life get a better break than others? Not really. Basically, all of us, whether we know the truth or not, are all equal parts of God. Not one of us is any better or worse than any other one, because we are all one. We are not identical. We are not the same, but we are all part of God. As human beings we have played different roles. We have been good guys and bad guys, but those have just been roles. Our true identities are hidden in God. We admit our complicity in everyone else's sins, but we also must admit our complicity in everyone else's glorious accomplishments."

Commentary: When an actor stops acting, he returns to his real personality. The police don't come and arrest him for playing a crook in the movie or play. Our problem on earth is that most of us don't know we are acting. We are caught up in the drama and take it very seriously. We are writing our own scripts as we live each day. If we could realize our oneness with all life, I think we could write better scripts for ourselves and help each other edit our scripts.
