Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, namaste:

We are beginning chapter 15, paragraphs 1 and 2 of the "Letter to the Omans" from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul." ( Page 63).

"Some of us, of course, are very strong in our faith in the oneness of all life. We can set good examples and be ready to help anyone who asks for help. We can be ready to serve others whenever and wherever we are called. We don't just sit proudly where we are. Instead, we look for ways to be of service to others.

Let's take a lesson from Jesus and other great saints. They didn't cross the street to avoid other people's troubles. They were proactive in helping others, and they knew just what to do. There are plenty of verses in the scripture of the world that counsel us to do what we can to help others. Let's call upon God and the angels to help us see our opportunities to serve each other, then we will be in harmony with each other. We will be a magnificent choir--singing together enthusiastically. Singing to life, to love, to the God of all."

Commentary: Service to others is a cornerstone of most religions. The question though is what type of service is best. The answer to that question lies in whom we are trying to help. Motive in helping is also important. Seeing God in everyone is a good motive to help anyone. If we listen to our inner wisdom, we will know what to do.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hello Everyone, namaste:

We are continuing with chapter 14, paragraph 10 in the Letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul." (page62).

"Let us concentrate on our own relationship with God, and not try to impose our methods onto others. Analyze yourself to see if your actions are inline with your beliefs. If you notice that your actions are inconsistent with your beliefs, then you need to be aware of those episodes and correct yourself. You don't want to be a hypocrite. Have you ever heard anyone say, "I aspire to be a hypocrite?"

Commentary: Aren't we all hypocrites at one time or another? But if in all humility we engage in our relationship with God according to our understanding of God, then our relationship with God will grow and expand and transcend what we know now. To try to preach any ultimate truth to others is folly when the whole ocean of truth is yet to be discovered and understood.
