However this transformation or salvation is going to take place one fact is for sure, the concept must be such that it honors the individual’s sovereignty, believing in each being a self-governing body. How that looks for me is different than every other being yet in harmony with all. We are not going in the direction of more rules, regulations, and punishments. We are moving in the direction of each being a law unto oneself, harmony, and dignity. Namaste, Love, and Peace.
Good question. Years ago I decided I needed to place everything I had been taught to be true, over my 42 years of life, on the table. I then needed to allow my life to unfold which prevented me from any form of goal setting since I had no idea the direction my life would take me in teaching me my life lessons. As I received these lessons revealing that what I was taught to be true was in fact a myth, I was constantly having to place it all on the table for tomorrow that which I was taught yesterday may be myth today. It has been a gradual process working oneself out of the grave and each layer of dirt, while not true, is a little less true than the deeper layer of dirt. Until one rises out of the grave and into the light where all this is irrelevent and you see the world with open eyes. Or so it seems. Even now, I know that I must remain true to my training and continue to keep everything I now believe to be true on the table and let my life unfold. I have been instructed that my bed has been made for me. I have been promised that I shall not be ashamed. I have been reminded that I am on a journey that is already done, so enjoy it. My teachers, many whom I once considered my enemies, have been diligent in my education. We all need to feel a part of something bigger than oneself, I think. To rise up while so many remain buried is of no satisfaction nor is it fulfilling. To rise up and all rise with you, now that is what this is all about, I think. Not to receive credit, instead for the dignity that is human for all beings. We make jest of the comment that “I am going to raise a little hell”, yet consider that this is hell. Then we are all in this together and none can be left behind. To leave any behind is to fail to raise. I know I am in the right space since this needs to be done in a way that GOD is glorified and GOD is the harmony of all humanity. Or so it seems to me.
Accept or act in accordance with a rule, decision, or recommendation. What is it to Abide in the Lord and the Lord will abide in you? Words that come to mind are peacefulness, serenity, calm, confidence. Reminds me also of the scripture that reads “And I shall make all thy bed”. In a world in which we condemn and belittle humans saying “you made your bed now you lay in it” this scripture suggests otherwise. Has the Lord made your bed? Perhaps you have not awakened to this fact. Perhaps you have taken on yourself the abuse of others, particularly the adversarial system, and beat yourself up as well. Did you know that the salvation we shall all observe, spoken of in scripture, is the salvation of the Adversary, aka the adversarial system? Course of Miracles would suggest this is the bride and the bridegroom spoken of in scripture. LOVE and PEACE Namaste
What is preparation? I’ve been watching a movie “Talking to Heaven” and the main character refers to the angst felt as a young child in having dreams where his mother died and met with his grandmother. Some 50 years later his mother is dying and he mentions to a psychologist that he thought he had prepared himself for this moment. Preparation has been a mainstay of individual and collective development. We prepare ourselves as a hedge against troubling times with education, religion, work/money, and even philosophy. We are in want of something that will help us feel and be good when times may not be so good. I’ve written this because the first thought that came to mind is that in preparation we are really stuck in our views, lacking growth and evolution, since the preparation is based upon that same old view. It’s like trying to prepare for a downward spiraling economy by saving what money you do have and earn, putting a stop to unnecessary and even some necessary expenditures, and renegotiating your contracts. Your view as to how the economy functions has not changed. Your preparation is consistent with your view. Now, let’s say that you look at all this and realize this view and preparation, while it may work for you, has many aspects that have a harmful impact on others. If you’re an employer you may have laid off people and your suppliers whom you have now cut back your expenditures with are laying off some of their people.
Perhaps preparation or the movement toward preparation should be telling us that something is wrong with the model we are residing within. A model that would be leaning toward conformity rather than diversity. A model that is obviously oppressive rather than liberating. A model that would victimize rather than empower.
And I shall write my law upon your hearts and in your minds; a promise that defines what it is to be self-governing and sovereign; to be a law unto yourself. This is a frightening concept in todays world yet this is the promise, it is the defining characteristic for human potential, and it is the environment fostering harmony without compromise.
Lots of talk and action around the globe where humanity is standing up and saying enough to dictatorial style rulers. Dictatorships seem to come in all shapes and sizes yet they have one common characteristic that defines them to be a dictatorship. A dictatorship, be it one or a representative form, defines the nation as sovereign while the people are to be the governed. In other words, a dictatorship takes the sovereignty of each and every individual and calls them citizens thus binding them to be governed rather than self-governing and sovereign. Think about it? A nation whose people are not sovereign can not be sovereign since the sovereignty comes from the people. And a nation that would suggest that the people surrender their sovereignty to the nation that they become the governed of the nation is a dictatorial rule.
There is only one form of government and that is self-government and the people are the sovereigns. Nations become obsolete and walls are not needed. The boundaries are those determined by each self-governing and sovereign individual, boundaries honored by all.
