Hello Everyone, namaste;
We are continuing with chapter 16, paragraph 5 in the Letter to the Omans from the book Gospel of One; Letters of Aul.
"There has never been any question about your honesty in these matters. I know you have a true understanding about the oneness of all life, and I rejoice in that. I trust that you will make sure that every good thing is the real thing. Hold fast to the truth and don't fall back into the half-truths of the religionists. Stay alert to the presence of God everywhere and before you know it the peace and joy of God will fill your lives and you will see through the illusions of life. You will know how to live in the world without being crushed by the illusions. You will enjoy the best of God-Life."
Commentary: If you have the intention to do this, you can do it. If you are doing it already, you know the meaning of this paragraph. An example of a half truth is: Believe in this doctrine and you will be saved. Belief is just a step in the process of being saved. There is a lot more to the process. It isn't that simple or easy. We have to overcome our egos with all their quirks during the process of being saved. We have to see through the many illusions of life on this planet. We have to take full responsibility for ourselves. So it is not just a matter of believing something.

Hello Everyone; namaste:
We are continuing with chapter 16, paragraph 4 in the Letter to the Omans from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul. (page 65)
"One final word of counsel, friends. Watch out for people who misuse the concept of oneness. They don't really understand the oneness of life, but they can see advantages in thinking what is yours is also theirs since we are all one. The idea of oneness can be abused by people who have a limited understanding. They will come on with pious sweet talk to dupe unsuspecting, trusting, but naive believers. Just be on your guard for scam artists who have no intention of working with us at this point in their evolution. But bless them, if they are willing to learn, we can help them remember their connection with God."
Commentary: The concept of oneness can be abused and even put into the dualistic framework where it is just another idea open to debate. However, a true and profound experience of the oneness of life will leave a person with a deep understanding of his or her connection with all of life. The scam artist is also part of life and will just be a passing phase for that person. So there is no need to condemn such a person, nevertheless, we can avoid being cheated by such a person with the discernment that comes from realizing our oneness with God and all of life.

Hello everyone, namaste:
We are starting chapter 16, paragraphs 1-3 in the Letter to the Omans, from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul." (page 65)
"There will be other people coming to Ome to be with you, such as our friend Pamela. I recommend her strongly. She is solid in the oneness of God. I hope you will open your homes to her with the generosity and abundance of God. She deserves every good thing as she is always helping other people. She has helped me many times.
Say hello to Parvati and Arlen for me. They have opened their home to many seekers, and many people are grateful to them. They have risked their own lives and livelihoods to help spread the gospel of oneness. We owe them a lot.
Actually, I have a long list of people to greet and the number keeps on increasing, praise God. I can't mention them all by name here, but you know in your heart of hearts who you are. I love all of you."
Commentary: There are a lot of people who have advanced the kingdom of God on earth, yet they never became famous. However, God knows the life story of everyone, and everyone's contributions are appreciated by those who know the truth.
