Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, Namaste;

We are starting on Chapter 8, paragraph 1 in the Letter to the Omans from the book Gospel of One; Letters of Aul.

"When many more of us realize that we are all one in God, the task of overcoming the illusions will be easier. Remember, we have labored for centuries under the illusion of separateness, which has brought sorrow and fear to many. But no longer, we are now full of hope. The mighty wind of Self-realization has blown away the dark clouds. We are now free from the awful tyranny of the illusions. I call it a tyranny because of the insane and brutal dictatorships the world has seen--run by people who thought the illusions were real. They tried to control what people did, said and even what they thought. All because they were lost in the illusion. They don't want us to know we are all sovereign beings in God. They would lose their power if we remembered who we are in truth. We are free in God-realization, oh yes!"

Commentary: When we think of the dictatorships the world has seen, we see leaders who were utterly lost in the illusions. They had no respect for the dignity of the individual. They killed or imprisoned people who were threats to them. They had no concept of the oneness of all life. They did not know that what they did to others they were actually doing to themselves. They did not know that every one of us is a sovereign being, with the full rights of a manifestation of God. If you think about this you can see where it leads--yes, kindness to all living things, respect for all life.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hi Everyone; namaste;

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

We have tried many remedies and therapies, and they all work to some extent, but the good effects don't seem to last. Is there something or someone who can truly help us live a God-free, God joyous life? I would like to say yes, Jesus can help you, or Buddha can help you, or Krishna can help you, or any of the spiritual masters, and they can help you if you let them. But that is the key, your own will power. A thousand Christs, a thousand Buddhas, a thousand Krishnas may come to help you, but unless you use your will power to affirm your own God-self, none can save you. We can help each other. We don't have to do it alone. The community of people who believe in the gospel of Oneness can help one another."

Commentary: Your will power is your savior because you must use your will power to do anything, including accepting help from other people. It may seem hard to rouse our will power sometimes. We can help each other do that.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone; namaste;

We are continuing with chapter 7, paragraph 6 in the Letter to the Omans from the book Gospel of One; Letters of Aul:

"The habits we get into are hard to break. The moment we decide to do something good, the illusion is there to trip us up. We may truly delight in doing loving and kind things, but it is pretty obvious that our efforts are not all one hundred percent. There is part of us that holds back or is even covertly rebellious, and that shows up, sometimes when we least expect it."

Commentary: I think our worst habit is accepting the illusion of separation from God. It leads to all kinds of mistakes even when our intentions are good. It also lets the ego get the upper hand, and thus we try to satisfy the ego instead of God, or the All.
