In Matthew 13 Jesus said 13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14 Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says: “You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.”
Since our birth, the world has molded us. Our culture, education, media and religious systems played an integral part of who we are today. Now we are bombarded daily with commercials, subliminal messages, from our cell phones, social media and Main Stream Media, on Television or tell a Vison, telling us what and how to think, what to buy what to believe, enticing us to buy their product. Those messages sell products and we are part of the system. Messages go out to you and your family every day; the food we eat, the clothes we wear, our latest and greatest gadgets. A messaging system that goes worldwide. From Pharmaceutical to food companies we are continually being distracted and take away our focus from what is most important, our spirituality.
Consider the world is full of distortions, distractions, truths and untruths, as a test. Perhaps the greatest test the world has ever seen. We make choices every day, good and bad, positive and negative. In the biblical days known as good and evil. Our thoughts, emotions and actions are part of those choices. Positive thinking generates positive emotions resulting in positive actions and negative works the same way. We all have these thoughts, we are human and all part of our test.
Isaiah 32:3 Then the eyes of those who see will not be blinded,
And the ears of those who hear will listen.
What helped me understand our world and a new insight on spirituality was an unnoticed event that took place in 1981 through 1984. The Law of One provides a spiritual message to the world. It has been said this is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”. The message was about love and light, positive and negative paths, our purpose and our connection to the Infinite Creator.are available free online with search terms.
Consider our spiritual journey as a school or training camp for our spiritual evolution. Although our physicals sensations, emotions and thoughts may seem like burdens, they are gifts through which we may learn. When we learn to work skillfully and lovingly with these gifts, we will not be reactive. we begin to live our life with love, although grasping the meaning of love is difficult. It is not the love with attachment or controlling or manipulative love, but pure love that opens it’s self to all that is.
Then we begin to learn and focus on understanding and expanding our wisdom, through moment to moment mindfulness. We then begin to penetrate the veil of delusion and realize we are not alone. Wisdom helps us develop and understand that nothing is permanent in the physical world, while we continue our spiritual journey to the next level once we learn our lessons.
We are here for a purpose and it is up to each to learn and find their spiritual path. Connection to God is our purpose, a lifelong journey of seeking the truth and discovering who we are. Sometimes we have to be shaken to emotionally and physically to wake up. The past year, the present and the future, has and will be our awakening to the cosmic plan. Meditation and contemplation becomes part of life to stay connected and to go deeper in understanding our true selves.
