Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, namaste:

We are continuing with chapter 11, paragraph 6 in the Letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

" Once you realize the extraordinary kindness of God you will be astounded. And his wisdom is so wide and deep; it's way beyond our human understanding. Even the best philosophers and theologians don't even come close. No one can explain God. Our words are not adequate. Is there anyone intelligent enough to tell God how to run the universe? (Some people think they can suggest some improvements, though). Yet everything comes back to God, everything happens through God, and everything winds up in God. Glory to God forever. Praise to God forever. Yes, yes, yes!"

Commentary: What do I know? I'm just an ignorant fool. Or at least my ego is. But my conscious Self, my real Self, knows something about God, and that something is beyond words to explain. But we use many words to try to explain God. Love is at the top of the list.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

hello everyone; namaste:

We are continuing with chapter 11, paragraph 5 in the letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

I want to be clear about this, my friends. It may be difficult and easily misinterpreted by some. We don't want to think that we are better than the religionists. Their hardness of heart is temporary, especially if you look at the situation in terms of the long range plans of God. We are all old friends of God, but many, or most of us have forgotten.There was a time, not so long ago, that we didn't remember either. But God's love for us is fully guaranteed and will never be rescinded. We have all experienced what it is like to forget our connection with God, but what a joy it is to finally remember. We are always welcomed back into the fullness of God, who graciously and magnificentlly recieves us withut any thought of punishing us because we forgot and acted in many contrary ways, to put it mildly.

Commentary: If one of your old friends was lost in a state of amnesia you would do what you could to help him remember his original self. If he did bad things you would not condemn him because you know that he's acting out of character. So God is just trying to wake us up from our delusive state so we can reclaim our divine identity as part of God.
