“It is Time that Mankind awoke from Mindless Slumber”.
WE ARE TOLD THAT MAN BEARS A MOST DREADFUL BURDEN AND THAT IT MUST IN THE END DESTROY HIM. WHAT NONSENSE; THE BURDEN IS OF MAN'S OWN MAKING AND HE MUST HIMSELF THROW IT OFF. WHY WASTE TIME AND ENERGY IN CARRYING IT AROUND AND FOR NOTHING!!!
Spirit have often asked why do you read? Why fill your heads with knowledge that will profit you nothing - you accept so many written words and take unto yourself so many convictions making your own decisions only when forced to do so. What applies to one is not necessarily good for all - what helps one may not help another - each individual must find his own way and that is only through inward looking and searching for the truth and the light which is within us all.
Both sorrow and joy in their own way work to encourage us on the road to spiritual freedom. Mankind is often heard to say the whole world is dead - rubbish!!! EVERYTHING IS ALIVE NOTHING IS DEAD. As we walk and seek the truth, the way, the realisation of spiritual life, along the way we will meet many who will jeer, make mock of us. Ignore such as these for they are as strangers to matters of the spirit; such as these could stand before the very face of Creation and yet be blind, confused and many out there struggling for survival will believe only what they CAN SEE. And so he thinks that all is death and there is no life but he must come to accept that there is so much within time and space, freely given, there for all to enjoy if we will only SEEK. If we will use logic and think in this way we will soon realise that there is continuous progression and evolvement but there is no end. Once we have been given the gift of life it is ETERNAL and only the Great Mind can cause it not to be so.
Then let us say "what is beyond - what is out there - what is waiting for us when we go Home?". The answer to all of these questions is 'WHAT WE CANNOT SEE BY EARTHLY EYES'. Then we also have to accept that there is really no gulf, all is together as in the Creation. And as for those who jeer and mock, just have understanding that they do this because being idle in their thoughts it would take effort and energy to move away from accepted ideas and learn something fresh, albeit that which would be fresh to their minds might be the truth and understanding of the Universal Law. Many might find that it interfered with their normal way of life and to turn away from what they have so far accepted might lead to some discomfort. Also always remember that to accept without understanding is to be idle and this does not allow the inner consciousness to surface. So search and reach ever upwards and climb to bring the spirit into freedom and thus, and thus only, can Man himself be free.
Never fear that spiritual truth and knowledge will take you away from the truth of creation and its meaning - quite the opposite; you will be clean, refreshed and aware, yes totally aware, of life earthly and eternal. May I wish you well on your journey.
