Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hi everyone; namaste:

We are moving on to paragraph 10 of chapter 7 in the First Letter to the Orinthians from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"I do want to point out that time is of the essence.  You only have a hundred years more or less to sow the seeds and reap the harvest of God-consciousness.  When you look at the records, how many people have truly realized their oneness with God and became Self-masters?  Fit to be among the ascended host? Not that many apparently.  But now I believe tens of thousands of people can do it.  The tools, resources, and inspirations are now available on a wide scale. By remaining single you could really concentrate on gaining your Self-mastery.. On the other hand, getting married and raising a family will give you plenty of chances for growth and problem solving."

Commentary: It isn't easy to gain your eternal freedom. There is no automatic salvation, that is why we need to be one-pointed in God consciousness.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hi everyone; namaste:

We are moving on to paragraphs 7,8,and 9 in chapter 7 of the First Letter to the Orinthians from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"All of you were once deeply lost in the illusions.  You were ignorant, but now you know better, so why slip back into thinking the illusions are real.  Hold the high ground of God consciousness and the awareness of oneness.

God doesn't give you explicit directions about whether you should get married or not.  You have the freedom to make up your own mind. Just try to realize your purpose in life and whether or not living with a partner and children fits in with that purpose.  For most of you I would say that getting married and having children would be beneficial.

If you want to pursue the divine romance with God and be free to serve life whenever and wherever you want without being held back by family obligations, then I suggest that you stay single and perhaps join a monastic order where other people will reinforce your ideals and actions."

Commentary:  It seems that only a few people are so focused on their direct relationship to God that marriage would not be a good idea. But whether a person stays single or marries, the important action is to realize our oneness with God, drop the ego, and live for the benefit of everyone.

Gospel of oneness

Hi Everyone, namaste,

We are now on paragraph 6 in chapter 7 of the First Letter to the Orinthians from the book, "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"Were you stuck in slavery when you realized your oneness with God? If so, remember that you are a sovereign and free being in God. I am totally opposed to slavery of any kind, and there are many kinds of subtle slavery. Escape from all forms of slavery, especially slavery to other people, but also from economic slavery and slavery to bad habits. You're not a slave to God either. God wants you to exercise your freedom and creativity. It's a marvelous thing. God has given us many suggestions on how we can express our individuality in harmony with all."

Commentary: Here is why slavery is so bad: It is a complete negation of our Godhood. As souls come from God we are free and self-sufficient beings. But we have given in to the illusions of life. We think we are dependent on the things of this world. We think we are locked into the money system. We think we are locked into this food system. We think we have so many limitations. The only way out it up, and God has given us ways to move up to freedom.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hi Everyone, namaste:

We are now on paragraph 5 in chapter 7 of the first Letter to the Orinthians from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"Were you Jewish or Christian or Buddhist or Muslim or Hindu or Taoist when you first realized your oneness with God?  Whatever you were, don't try to hide it or disavow it, or brag about it.  People from all religions or no religion have come into the realization that they are one with God."

Commentary: The realization of oneness transcends all religious doctrines. Once you realize that you are one with God then you see all religions in perspective and you see that they have all become closed systems in which few people think outside the box of the system. Yet they have led people up to a certain point, and they all serve a purpose and do some good, so there is no point in saying they are useless or completely false. A person who has realized oneness with God can still remain in a particular religious faith and try to help others see beyond the outer trappings of the religion.
