Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, namaste;

We are continuing with chapter 6, paragraph 4 in the letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"Now that we have broken the spell of the illusions and realize our freedom in God, does that mean we are free to do anything we want to? Since we are free in the freedom of God, can we do anything that comes to mind? I don't think so. We know well enough from past experience that freedom doesn't mean following every whim or spur of the moment impulse that will get us into trouble later. We may be free to eat or drink or do certain things, but they may become a habit that causes suffering in the long run. But if we follow the wisdom of the master teachers such as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna and others who instruct us in the best ways to live, then the freedom never dies. In our past lives we have let the illusions tell us what to do. But thank God we are now listening to the master teachers and to our own inner God-self. Now we are set free to live openly in the true freedom of God."

Commentary: Freedom without wisdom will only lead to some kind of slavery or bondage. Wisdom is gained by personal experience and by learning wisdom from experienced people. It is wise to get wisdom. Some people say we should seek wisdom as urgently as if we were underwater and desperately needed to get up to the air. Knowing that we are one with God, that we are part of God, and that God is the only reality is the beginning of wisdom.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone; Namaste:

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

"So let's not let the illusions run our lives anymore. Don't give them the time of day, after all, what is time? Don't even run little errands that are connected with the old way of being a dupe for the illusions. Let's throw ourselves wholeheartedly and full time into God's way of living life. We are no longer under the tyranny of the illusion. We are living in the freedom of God. Life is what we make it to be, so let us make it in the most wonderful way we can imagine."

Commentary: When we accept our roles as co-creators with God, then we will see that we have the freedom to create something beautiful. When we really throw ourselves wholeheartedly into the oneness of God, into the arms of God, we will be free of the illusions.

What are the illusions? Let's review some of them: The illusion of separation from God, the illusion of lack, the illusion of conditional love by God, the illusion of judgment by God, the illusion of condemnation by God, the illusion of everlasting punishment, the illusion of superiority and inferiority, and the illusion that this material world is the only reality.
