All these wonderful seasons of going within and glowing without, and I’m talking Politics?
Well, not really. All of the Primaries for whatever party is vying for dominance really bore me. What I’m talking about is this week’s meditation, where we are directed to ‘realize your unity with omnipotence’. As the spray of a wave crashing upon the rocks contains within it the entire ocean, so do we, contain within ourselves, the exact nature of God.
“Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness” [Genesis 1:26]
“Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.’ [Genesis 2:7]
“The Father and I are One.” [John10:30]
Why did God create us in this manner, breathing His Spirit into us to enliven us? Could it be so that we would be able to act upon creation, to be a steward of it, and to create in the physical realm…to have dominion over our world?
Dominion requires personal responsibility, and consciousness.
It also requires reverence and respect for all that has been and is being created.
AND, probably most important, the prerequisite for Dominion over the world is Dominion over the self…..something you can attain through The Master Keys.
This takes me back to Anarchy.
If I and the Father are one, and if you and the Father are one, it stands to reason that you and I are one. Could this be the reason for the universality of The Golden Rule?
If we are one, then anything and everything that I do unto you, I first do unto me. In pondering these things over the years, I have come to believe that when the hearts of men are restored to their true nature, they will see that they, themselves, are sacred, and worthy of honor and respect, of kindness, and love. They will also see that all others are as well, and, dare I say it, that all of creation is Holy. With this degree of clarity of thought and understanding, is there a need for one man or institution to lord it over another? I think not. Thus, I am an Anarchist.
Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me.
