Do you feel a Benevolent Creator can create beings with the will to be destructive in their own creations. I do.
absolutely. This is Free-Will at it's most basic. The idea that "all is permissible" or "Do what thou wilt is the whole of the law" is not a
human-made idea or law but rather an observation that this is the nature of the human condition
which is inescapable and hence another aspect
and constant of the world to have Faith in and collaborate with; and many occultists attempt just that.
Some create, some destroy, but ultimately they are both the same thing. One must destroy before they can create. One must create before there is
anything to destroy.
The Holy Creator hears all prayers. The issue I feel is those that bear their will here negatively, that opt for a way of being moreso
misaligned from Truth and Love.
I do agree with you there (though I define "the holy creator" as the consciousness behind your eyes and brain) though prayers
are just the
INTENTIONAL hopes and wishes, whereas I hope to communicate the way in which all forms of thought, words, belief, and expression are also "heard"
by the "holy creator"
and hence we should refine the way in which we think and express ourselves. It can only follow that we better understand
and trust the forces of the universe, and suddenly all appears necessary.
To be alike Christ in a Spirit of unconditional Love, devoting their life to servitude...a very challenging road of testing. We all fall short
in the corruptible flesh.
this is where Christianity gets tricky, because that assertion is filled with loosely-defined concepts that can be interpreted
in various ways.
but I will say this: just as you said, "to be alike Christ in spirit" is the goal of the Christians. This is not an expectation or critique of the
fallibility of man
but rather a suggestion for a spiritual configuration. Most would not disagree that Christ's teachings are mostly about
spirituality, so i'm not sure why so much of it is interpreted as "looking down" upon the human condition and "the fallibility of the corruptible
Just watch the movie Hellraiser to get a different view on "the corruptible flesh" and (while it is a cheezy horror movie) I think that it
communicates how self-defeating and useless it is to concentrate on the "flaws" and "shortcomings" of what comes with being human, because when you
embrace that flesh and redefine what it means to be "flawed", then you become a more united and stable being.
..but that's also where my philosophy integrates just a *pinch* of LaVeyan Satanism which i'm sure you folks are less interested in haha..
Good is Good and evil is evil. Both powers in opposition speak to souls in 'calling'
I think of Good and Evil as being like the '0' and '120' MPH areas of my car's speedometer.. going too slow or fast while driving can get you into
trouble, but always driving the speed-limit keeps one in a state of panic and suppression.. so just as with driving, steer intelligently and know
where you want to go (or don't..! sometimes I love driving aimlessly and oftentimes that is when I have thoughts that result in these threads haha)
Not all will be Deemed ready to 'graduate' or 'ascend' beyond to the next level of soul evolution and will remain in this 'lower' frequency
'hell' comprising dimension, essentially quarantined from the positive 'Good Spirit' Aligned 'Heavens'
If you say so
But if I translate what you are saying into my own terminology, this has been the state of things for a looooong time now. This "transcendence" is
not INSIDE of time, but rather a state that can be acquired immediately, at any time, in any space..
This Earth is Heaven and Hell equally, and hence neither ultimately. If you see
hell here, you gotta ask yourself "why am i looking for it?"
and with heaven, you have to ask yourself "how can i stay
here and enjoy myself while there are so many other people who drift between heaven
and hell without any idea of what is happening.." but that's just my view on it.
Thank you for your reply! I always appreciate someone who takes time and puts thought into their responses
