and meant to control and steal from the people while denying them the very thing they promise, a relationship with their creator. I believe it would
be easier to stop the sun from shining or the season from changing then to stop the growth of the eternal soul. [...]
You see, we are almost just alike. Two human beings trying to find our way along our spiritual paths and sharing it as we can with those who we meet.
Sorry for the long quote, but this is the first time I have seen anyone (including myself) express my own observations and conclusions so eloquently
and succinctly on ATS. It is quite stunning, really.
Your vision of things seems to corroborate with mine to a remarkable degree. I know of sin's true nature and sense the existence of hell both now and
in my own memories, so I disagree about those. But you may consider me both impressed and inspired by how much our assessments appear to agree.
Yes, our Creator most certainly does love us, no matter what. It is a love so powerful and unconditional that it is itself the embodiment of All That
Is. It is literally the fabric of our being, unless I am tragically mistaken (which I most certainly could be).
The destiny of all
souls, without exception, is to grow and create ourselves. And one day, we will all unite in a time when we will all finally
understand, when fear and suffering and death and hell (which we create for ourselves) will be thrown away, discarded like chaff from grain, because
we will no longer have need of them.
I don't know when that day will come, but I know it will, as it has before.
I know that hope will always be there, awaiting our embrace, and that a true hero stands firm when all seems lost.
Yours is clearly a path marked by Light.
If only mine were as brightly lit.
