I Am You and You Are Me

The golden rule has always been, love God, and love your neighbour as yourself. All the law of God is neatly wrapped up in just these two commands. The commandment of love covers all of the commandments that we no longer even need a book of commandments. All we need is love…

Love is All We Need

How do we love our neighbour? God wants us to seek Him, but what does that mean?

God wants us to know Him like we would get to know our neighbour. God wants us to love Him. The first step is to learn who God is. The second step is to find out what God wants so we can fulfill His desires.

We love the same with every connection we have with every single person here on Earth. We are all interconnected the same way as God because God made each and every one of us. We are all created in His image.

But what does His image mean?

It means that we have to learn to put ourselves outside ourselves to understand the GOOD or GOD in each other. To learn who God is, I have to step into God’s shoes.

I have to understand who God is to understand why He does the things that He does to understand how to love Him. We have to understand one another exactly the same way! God’s love is very intimate.

God Reveals Himself in Relationships

A relationship is always the complement of what is opposite. There has to be challenge to make a relationship thrive and work. There are many relationships in the world. As we identify with each part of a relationship we can then understand what the opposite is.

God reveals Himself in the relationship of darkness versus light, physical versus spiritual, bad versus good, man versus woman, and Jews versus Gentiles.

If you have been reading my posts you will know I have talked about this topic in length. This time, however, I would like to take this idea to another level.

God is Our Lover

The most intimate relationship is between a man and a woman because the man and the woman are in the image of God. All the opposites are to be respected for who they are in their individuality.

God is the first relationship. God is spiritual and we are physical. First, we try to identify with what is spiritual by putting ourselves in God’s shoes who is spiritual. We naturally make bad choices but God is only good. Anything that we do that is good had to come from God because only God is good. We identify with what is good by putting ourselves in God’s shoes.

Next is the relationship between the man and the woman. The man and the woman who love one another, love by loving the other. The woman loves the man by putting herself in his shoes. She learns to identify with him and is able to respect what he loves that is good that makes him who he is. The man loves his wife by putting himself in her shoes. He learns to identify with her and what she loves that is good that makes her who she is. They both love God the same but are opposite.

Lastly, the relationship between Jews and Gentiles is the same as the relationship between the man and the woman. As the Gentiles love the Jews by placing herself in his shoes, she is able to identify with the Jews and respect the choices that make him who he is. Likewise, the Jews love the Gentiles by placing himself in her shoes, he is able to identify with the Gentiles and respect the choices that make her who she is. They both love God the same but are opposite.

The Sun Goes Down

At the end of the day, all of the opposites in all of the relationships reverse roles. Darkness becomes light, physical becomes spiritual, bad becomes good, the man becomes the woman, and the Jews become the Gentiles. We all understand one another equally and everything becomes balanced.

We are all different because every single one of us has our own unique journeys but all of us share the same feelings and struggles. We can identify with each other with the same love. We cannot change how we individually feel, we can only identify with each other’s needs and love by giving each other what we need. That is how we become balanced.

He becomes her and she becomes Him.

I am you and you are me.

The last will be first and the first will be last.

We are Her.

We are One.
