I've contemplated these things as well, very very deeply, and I've come to the space of nothing or what might be thought of as the "holy of holies"
and on that unconditioned ground of being and becoming, it came to me clear as day that the only thing worth doing, when there's nothing left that we
must do or are compelled to do, is to love.
However, for many of us, if not all of us, because of abuses of power, and sins committed both against us, and by us towards others, we are not fully
reconciled with the center and source of life, absent a real and everlasting Justice
, without which life, and the potential for the full
enjoyment of life, can lose it's luster let us say, and terminate, not in everlasting life and enjoyment, but in a grave insult, including one whereby
death has the last word with our life and life itself rendered meaningless, purposeless and absurd, in the grand scheme of things.
Thus, the Great Work of Jesus Christ, as a representation of the height of the twin pillars of a severe Justice and a tender Mercy, and as a Passover
of life and human history, holds imbedded within itself the possibility and eventual actuality, of the restoration of our good-willed, good-natured,
, charm, and joyfullness, and childlike playfulness (creativity) without measure, or constraint, such that, at the end of the day and in
the final analysis, the answer to the question of "Because why?" may be given, as "Because I love you!".
, absent an eternal Justice, just wouldn't work, as the opportunity for everlasting joy is eventually taken down by the absurdity of
the injustices of the human experience via the "sins of the father" which goes down through the generations and into the fog and mist of an historical
inderminacy (unless we adopt the allegorical mythology of the Garden of Eden as the explanation).
Originally posted by daskakikThe fact that you believe that this "problem" even exists makes me doubt your claim to enlightenment and
How can you say it's not a problem, and has not been a "problem" whose resolution was and is neccessary?
And bear in mind too that I attempting to talk here about the REAL meaning and signicance of something otherwise largely misunderstood and
misinterpreted when I refer to Jesus' Great Work as the resolution to the problem of human sin/evil once and for all time. (yes I know much evil has
been committed by wicked men in the so-called name of Jesus Christ over the centuries, but that's not his fault).

I have yet to see god or feel his love but I have seen and felt things which I did and, I guess others could mistake for these things. This is how I
suppose different religions came about and the reason why I say that there isn't just one path.
Forgive me as I don't mean to be too harsh, but you don't present yourself, at lest "textually" as the warmest, most kind-hearted and loving person
I've come across and I'm pretty good at reading between the lines between the lines, oh maybe with your own friends and aquaintances, that's easy
enough to do. Jesus also speaks to this in the Gospels, about how to really love where the rubber meets the read and goes places far and wide.
