Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone; Namaste;

We are continuing with Chapter 7, paragraph 5 in the letter to the Omans from the book Gospel of One; Letters of Aul.

"Another question is one that I often ask of myself. "I want to do the right thing, I want to love everyone, but I can't seem to do it consistently. I fall way short sometimes, Why?" Oh my friends, I know how it is. We know the laws, but can't keep them. The powerful illusions sabotage our best intentions. We obviously need help. We can use our will-power, but it doesn't hold up under the strain. We can decide to do good, but we don't follow through. We can decide not to do something wrong, then we do it anyway. The illusion is so tricky sometimes. We think we need something that will only hurt us in the long run, such as the need to smoke a cigarette or something worse. The illusion gets the better of us so many times."

Commentary: This is the old story, very familiar to most people, especially to those of us who make new years resolutions. Old habits are hard to break If you can rise above the illusions though, you will have a better chance of succeeding in your resolutions.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, namaste;

We are continuing with chapter 7, paragraph 4 in the letter to the Omans from the book Gospel of One; Letters of Aul.

"You might be asking, "Is the illusion all bad?" The answer is , "No." God created the physical universe, which is a reflection of the truth. The illusion is our field to play in. It is our stage for the drama of creation. Through us and every created thing God experiences life. Life cannot be experienced in unbroken oneness. The duality of life gives full scope to the infinite experiences of life. However, we do not need to be lost in this illusion. We can be in the world but not of it. We can play our roles in life in peace and harmony. It is the people who do not realize it is only a game who take life too seriously. There is no need to harm other people or creatures to live in this illusion of creation. We are here to manifest the love of God, the joy of God, and beauty of God."

Commentary: When we realize that we can look at this world as a stage, and that we are the actors creating our own roles, then we can see that we can change things. We can see that we have the power and ability to manifest the love of God. The illusions of life are only the props that give a backdrop to the story of infinite love.
