Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, Namaste:

We are continuing with Chapter 5, paragraph 1 in the letter to the Omans, from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"As we evolve into our highest and best selves, it takes faith to get through the tough times. Faith opens the doors to God, and then we see that God has always left his door open for us. And when we go through that door we discover the wide open possibilities of our pure potential. we can't help but to break out in song and dance and glorious music."

Commentary: God has an open door policy, but we have to go through the door of our own making. If we have no faith, our door will be closed, and we won't be able to see that God's door is open. However, if we open up our own doors that have closed us in, we see that our potential in God is unlimited. Though we can't see how our potential will develop, faith will carry us through. If you think about your potential in God, it is so thrilling that you want to celebrate.

gospel of oneness

Hi Everyone; Namaste:

We are continuing with chapter four, paragraphs four and five in the letter to the Omans in the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"We trust that God is love, and we embrace his will. God's love is always present, no doubt about it. We just accept it. That's the way everyone can get in on it, no matter what religion, if any, a person follows, for God is the God of all.

In the past we relied on the great teachers and founders of our religions, such as Abraham, Moses, Mohammed, Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Confucius, Guru Nanak, and others because they seemed to have a special relationship with God. And so they did. They were bold and moved forward in the will of God. They concentrated on the positive side of life. They are father figures to millions of people. They went through many tests and trials. It wasn't easy for them, as you well know. Now is the time for us to grow up and realize that we are also one with God. We are now the fathers and mothers of faith. Everyone is equal in the eyes of God. Please don't think that your faith fathers and mothers are so far above you that you can never reach their heights. Your don't have to be exactly like them. Each one of us is unique. Each one of us will manifest the glory of God in our own ways. Trust that you are a real part of God."

Commentary: A genuine teacher wants you to learn everything he has to teach, and to encourage you to go deeper and come up with your own insights and thus build upon what he has taught. He wants you to exceed him. The great teachers of the past did not want to be set up as idols to be worshipped. They wanted us to realize that we are all part of God, and that we each have unique ways to contribute to the common good.

We can honor those who have made great attainments, but we honor them best by learning from them and then going further along the path of God-realization.
