Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, namaste:

We are continuing with chapter 12, paragraph 3 in the Letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul" (page 57).

"We can be compared to the different parts of the human body. Every part has its unique function that contributes to the whole body. The body we are talking about is the whole creation of God. We find our roles and meaning of life within the context of the whole universe. Every one has something to contribute to the whole. There's no sense in being envious of others or comparing ourselves favorably against someone else. Look deep within to find your role if you haven't already found it."

Commentary: We have roles to play within our social contexts, and also in the big picture of the whole universe. We are connected to stars and galaxies. There's plenty of room to grow. We're not stuck in just one narrow role. Our potential is unlimited, it just depends on how far we want to expand our consciousness.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone; namaste:

We are continuing with Chapter 12, paragraph 2 in the Letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"Personally, I'm deeply grateful for all that God has done for me. We live in the pure grace of God, it is important to remember our true positions. God is the real doer because God is all there is . We can understand ourselves better by what God is and by what he does through us. God experiences life through us. That does not mean that we are puppets. No, not at all. We have our free will."

Commentary: We are not God, God is us. We have no separate identity apart from God, but we do have individual identities within the being of God. We have been give the power to co-create within the majestic being of God. At this particular time in our earth history we are not co-creating very well, but we have the ability to make it better. If we all remembered that we are one in God we might do better.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone; namaste:

We are starting chapter 12 in the Letter to the Omans in the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"So here is my advice for you. Keep your regular routine of a balanced life, eating, sleeping, working, playing, and keep up with all your relationships, but place it all in the context of your oneness with life. See God everywhere. Respect God in all the variations of life. Honor yourself and honor others. At the same time be aware of peer pressure that drags you down. Keep your inner awareness of God. Quickly recognize and respond to the presence of God in every situation. The culture of TV, movies, shopping malls, sports, worldly music, and materialistic science will drag you down to its level if you let it. Tune into your God-Self, and you will rise above the mundane."

Commentary: Balance is very important in the spiritual life. If you are out in the material world a lot, it can be difficult to stay balanced. I salute those of you who are able to stay in tune with your inner God-presence during busy or stressful times. If you regularly meditate on the presence of God, it becomes easier to keep in tune all day long. You see the face of God everywhere.
