Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hi everyone; namaste:

We are now on the third paragraph of chapter 12  in the First Letter to the Orinthians in the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"So let's apply our intelligence and intuition on this topic of how God's spirit works in our lives.  Everyone shares in the totality of God, yet in any one lifetime, we may excel in only certain areas.  We are all different, we're all individuals, yet we are all one in spirit..  Some may excel in music, some in healing powers, some in artistry, some in managing, some in athletics, some in mechanical ability, some in communicating effectively, some in public speaking. God doesn't  favor one person over another.  In this lifetime some people may be highly skilled, while others may be handicapped.  Some may be rich and talented and others may be poor and fit only for menial labor. But we don't judge anyone.  Everyone has incarnated for specific purposes, and we don't know what those purposes are, but the soul knows."

Commentary: The high and the mighty are valued as much as the low and down-trodden.  One lifetime is just one link in the chain of a soul's progress.

Gospel of One; Letters of Aul

Hi Everyone; namaste:

We are now on paragraph 2 of chapter 12 in the First Letter to the Orinthians from the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."  (p 92)

" However, it is different in this life of oneness.  God wants us to use our reasoning power and our intuition to see through the illusions.  For example, why would God, who has everything, require you to sacrifice an animal? That makes no sense.  Or, why would God, who created you and loves you, send you to hell after one lifetime spent in ignorance or for being in the wrong religion?

Commentary: Traditions carry a lot of weight, and people will keep on following some traditions that got started in the dark ages.  People will hold onto superstitious beliefs for a long time.  However, we are free in God to question everything. Pure reasoning can free us from many superstitions and false beliefs, and a well-developed intuitions can help us move deeper into the truths of life.
