must take God seriously, and take life lightly. Then, we know that we always were the same and will ever remain the same.......the Originator of
this joke. This knowledge is not acheived by reasoning.
But it is the knowledge of experience."

What really motivates and inspires us, what satisfies the human heart fully and completely, in the space of nothing that is everything already
always..? Isn't that the ultimate question?
Only when we take What is left, when every "thing" (particularized attachments) is taken away - can a new creation be generated or founded, upon this
realization for the human being, as to his true identity, being and becoming as he is, a reflection (like Christ, and as the moon is to the sun) of
the first father and the true Lord of Love who originally inspired this in the first place (original intent of the will to share, and be creative, and
therefore, PLAY), and who is pleased ALREADY (eternally unfolding present moment, forever, since our true self in God never dies) to share his eternal
kingdom of light and love with ALL his children. In truth we stand, as self realized beings, in the "holy of holies", and there God calls us his own
(well done my son.. [tears of joy by me!]) and makes his home WITH us, as the living spirit of truth and love, and therefore as the simplicity on the
far side of complexity. Because it works out the "kink" or the flawZ, right across the entire breadth of all being and becoming, as a first/last
cause, it's not only generative or evolutionary, as a first principal of spiritual and psychological growth and well being, but best of all, fun, and
joyful, even humorous, and fearless, and therefore very powerful in the face of "evil", which must flee from it's presence wherever it moves, and as a
"process" it (we) are already MOVING, and here's the real kicker - by it's very nature, it's the only thing that really moves us in the first place!
That's the beauty of it all, that it contains imbedded within itself, as uncondtional love and acceptance, and forgiveness, the hand that pulls us
from the pit of ignorance and then has the audacity to wipe the tears from our eyes, while sharing with us the joke of all ages, which was always at
our OWN expense!. It's a type of alchemical fulcrum for the soul, calling us, choosing us first, from above.
I think that Meher Baba might be proud of my mystical evolutionary Christian understanding, and would agree with me about this, or he'd point out that
his approval is not required, since God is already God no matter what anyone thinks of him! and THAT is very funny indeed! Good one!
And so the mystery remains a mystery, and the dance goes on, into a much more enjoyable, and even amuzing future, as a free-man, maybe even dare I say
it, an untouchable (in a good way), set free in the truth which sets us free, but a freedom of such proportion and magnitude, that it precludes the
possibility of predation, by ANY power or principality, ANYWEHERE, and we already know that God is into sharing, and gathering, preserving all that is
good, and has no interest in blind robbery, or "double bind" robbery, oh of course he has the power to do anything, but being a God of love, the only
thing he binds and throws away, is that which makes no sense at all! Thus all our "foibles" and ridiculous notions, and utter absurdity, becomes the
comedic material, of the joke of the ages! ... think about it..
So really, what's being presented here is an invitation, for you yourself to step out into the light as the fool that YOU too really are, and were,
yet Liberated in the light of life and love, of which you yourself are it's reflection in Christ as the perfect reflection.
It's time to take our seats, no matter how crippled we are (or were) as we hobble to the table, and eat something that you don't eat with your
physical mouth, it's another substance altogether, eaten with a spiritual mouth, and it's really good, tastes like nothing, but fills the soul with
deep satisfaction, joy and immense laughter and love, so it's NOURISHING, it's good for us to eat and it feeds our spirit, let it not be forgotten,
let it not "fall through the cracks" as we sit glued to reality TV while texting acrocyms to people we don't even really know, or even care to know.
"Do youi love me Peter?"
Three times Jesus repeated it this question, each time in response to which poor Peter said
"Of course I love YOU, you KNOW I love you (why ask me, yet again?!)"
And THREE TIMES, in response, Jesus said..
"Feed my sheep."
THREE TIMES - poor Peter, he was beside himself!
Well I have something to say then,
BEHOLD, Lord! I am feeding them now!
Jesus Christ is God processed, for mutual sympathetic harmony and understanding. He is the spiritual food for our enjoyment, there's no other way to
take him and he didn't offer anything less.
For those with the eyes to see, ears to hear and the mouth to eat, welcome to the table of the living God with Jesus Christ as the Bridegroom and we
his bride or bride to be.
And as to the consumation of the spirit of God and man let's just say that there is no amount of Christ capable of ruining a personality and he is
always the perfect gentleman who simply stands at the door knocking and ready to sit and eat with anyone who opens the door of their heart to him as
nothing less than the love of God itself, which is eternal life, to know him and the one who sent him, and to recieve them.
