Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, namaste:

We are continuing with chapter 9, paragraph 2 in the letter to the Omans, from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"I grew up with Christians, they're my immediate family. They had everything going for them--strong families, churches throughout the land, seminaries and theological schools, wonderful hymns, songs, poetry, excellent organizational skills, and of course they follow Jesus, a true avatar of God who is able to help anyone who calls on him. And yet so many Christians do not really know God. They think he has only communicated through one ancient book, and that he has only one son, and that God would send portions of himself to hell."

Commentary: Jesus could have said a lot of nice things about the pharisees, the sadducees, and the rest of the orthodox religious people of his time. I'm sure there were a lot of devout and good people who went along with the standard rabbinical teachings of the day. But Jesus saw that they were somewhat stuck in their limited beliefs. He challenged them to rethink their beliefs and to come up higher. The same type of situation exists today. Millions of orthodox Christians think they know the truth already and are satisfied with what they have. If Jesus came again to help move them higher, most people would resist and reject him, and not even recognize him because he would say things that differ from their doctrines.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone; namaste:

We are starting on Chapter 9, paragraph 1 of the Letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"Even though I am a very happy person usually, I want you to know that I carry a certain sadness. It is a sadness deep within me that I haven't been able to let go of, even with the help of the joyous angels. I'll tell you what it is--it is the Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus, and other religionists who think they have all the answers, and that their way to heaven is the best for everyone else. If there was any way I could help them all see the truth immediately, I would do it. If they could just see, even for a minute, that God is Life. That God is love, and that kindness, joy and respect for all life are the foundation for living a good and harmonious life here on earth, then a large percentage of our problems would be solved already."

Commentary: Even though all the religions seem to want basically the same thing, they quarrel over which way is the best to attain it. They quarrel over doctrines and points of religious laws. Even within the major religions there are different sects, denominations, schools of thought that vie for supremacy of their way. God loves everyone no matter what they believe or don't believe, and since we are part of God, we can also express that unconditional love.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, namaste:

We are continuing with chapter 8, paragraph 10 in the letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."*

"God knows exactly what everyone of us is going through. He is there with people in the worst conditions. He's with the down and out as well as the rich and famous. He shares everything we think, say and do. She knows every experience we have gone through. At this moment she is taking care of us. Do you think anything or anyone can drive a wedge between us and God's love for us? Impossible! No trouble of any kind, no depression, no hatred, no hunger, no mind manipulation, no genetic tampering, absolutely nothing can interfere with God's love for us. I'm completely convinced that nothing at all--living or dead, angelic or demonic, past or future, high tech or low tech--absolutely nothing can stop or block God's love for us because God is pure love, and God is the only reality. Accept it. Melt into it. Grow into it. It is you. It is us."

Commentary: There is no escaping from God's love. If you want it, you got it. But mostly we seem to block it, but that is impossible, too. It will come through your shields and barriers. It will come through any interference from yourself or others. "The Hound of Heaven" is the famous poem that describes God's relentless pursuit of the lost.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone; namaste:

We are continuing with chapter 8, paragraph 9 in the letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."*

"God does have a master plan. He knew love would shape our lives. There was no need to force us into obedience. She didn't make us into puppets. She set us free in love and gave us the power to co-create our lives and our universe. And then, after setting us free to do whatever we willed to do, she stayed with us to experience everything we experience, to create everything we have created and to become more magnificent through us. So what do you think, with God on our inside like this, how can we lose?"

Commentary: This is in response to people who say God created everything, then stepped back to let us fight it out for evolutionary supremacy. God is right here with us in the middle of this cosmic drama because God is all there is. We are expressions of God. If you see yourself as separate from God, then you might have an ego problem. If you see yourself as an expression of God, then the ego is off its throne and your true individuality starts shining through.
