Isn't it just the most extreme feeling to realize that all the while when the stories of the OT might not of resonated with a individual....there are
actually a whole set of writings that are total opposite of what the OT teach! I was like WOW too!
I still accept no material as fully right, but they all have a rightful purpose. The only material I totally accept are the templates of the works of
Thee...which is in the Mother nature, the only template that is non destructible. The only template that has always been with mankind and will always
The past couple yrs. of my life has been defiantly eye popping! Only when I look back on certain things, it makes sense to why I experienced the
desires of shedding the ego, realizing that we are all loved beyond measure and even in my dreams, my life experiences were being reflected in ways
that connected to my spiritual understandings.
I remember very clearly last yr. about this time of yr. I made a claim to 'God' (if you will) that I didnt feel the need to accept certain things.
Ever since my spiritual self has humbled me beyond measure of how to me more self less....patient....accepting...loving....forgiving....and
understanding of certain writings, especially the claims of certain things Jesus taught. The divne did not leave me after my claims....in fact...I
have never felt the 'filling' of the spitit like I did after this claim then as before with the original accepting of the whole Bible. For the first
time, my spirit really began to grow.
My drive in life has changed, my pasions for growth spiritualy have changed, my mannorisms with others have changed, my thoughts of creation itself
have changed and now make more sense to me.
I found it so odd that some say these kinds of beliefs are self fulfilling and people seek these different beliefs to be gratified in some way. I only
now share my experiences AFTER many months of much alone time with me and Thee. There was no gratification from others to be found, it was me and me
alone. My seeking couldn't of been more humble. I only now come forth to others-feeling the need to share my belief that everyone is worthy and share
my belief that God has laid a path for all. Nothing is happenstance....everything has a purpose. Its the 'accepting' of the purpose that most get
I now understand the parables and the meaning of what Jesus said when he spoke about how to 'see with your one eye of light' so that 'the body can
be filled with light'. It is far from a need of gratification or self serving. What it taught me is that my will here is not my will...but yet a will
of a higher power. To fill the body with light is allowing the divine will to work through you. I now have a new understanding of what Jesus said when
he spoke of his body being our body and his blood being our blood.
If scriptures were sooo important....how is one to read scriptures with 'one eye'? Taking the knowledge of a scripture is one thing...finding the
wisdom within is another.
In the Bible we are taught to 'weigh a vine by its seed'. I believe so many people over look this. Within the book that we are to weigh the
vines....are two different seeds. The advice of weighing the vine is supposed to be in accord with everything....even the natures of God we see in the
Bible. Instead of making excuses why the vine wasn't matching up with the seed....I began to see that they are not supposed to match...everything is
right there, showing us two different natures. I now separate the natures and learn from them, I am done making excuses for why the two different
vines (natures) must come from one seed. The two seeds of two natures are there for a reason....for us to weigh and measure light from dark.
So I still study the Bible along with other materials...constantly seeing the two natures of this world...spirit and matter...light and dark...love
and hate....giving and taking....patients and force.
I think a perfect example of what you said about being condemned for writing a thread such as this is the secound day of the starting of this thread,
it was moved out of the conspiracy of religions forum. For once, I am glad to not be following the crowd. Im very content in my own walk with Thee.
Peace and Happy Holidays to all,
