All of us have a secret. We don’t even realize that we have a secret. God created us all but why? For sure we did not come here just for the struggle. The idea of a perfect God contradicts this life that is all about struggle. Life with God is supposed to be about pleasure. We all should be experiencing pleasure on the highest level. The highest level is God but what is that?
A New World
One thing that the world never experienced before is divine pleasure. We all have experienced moments of pleasure, but in God’s world, pleasure is constant and divine. Us humans have not experienced divine pleasure because divine is holy. Divine is pure goodness that is separate from evil.
The first man Adam became a living being. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.1 Corinthians 15:45
Who is Adam?
Adam is the image of God. Us humans are more like Eve, the woman, God’s heart, who aspire to be like God. God can only love. Humanity is more like the tree of knowledge of good and evil, she can choose to love God.
We are in a unique time because the world is at its rock bottom. We have learned the difference between good and evil just like it was promised in the garden.
For God knows that in the day you eat of it [tree of knowledge of good and evil] your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.Genesis 3:5
Humanity was created to know. We were created to have the experience of good and evil. We knew that evil would have consequences but the only way we could know what is good is if we knew the opposite. We had to know what evil is first.
It is as if Adam blew up and today we are all bits and pieces of the image of God. Now we are trying to put Adam back together again.
Adam is ONE soul. He is ONE brain. Oneness is different than darkness because our ONE soul knows the 100% truth. The awakening in the world is happening because some of us have not given up on the light within ourselves. The light that is deeply hidden in each of us is not hidden anymore and is identifying with the light that is in others.
God is a secret because the darkness in the world is here doing its job very well. Darkness is here to do the opposite of light. The darkness is here to convince us that there is no light. At every turn, the darkness will try its best to oppress that light so that we do not believe in it. It will use its very best strategies to distract us away from knowing God’s hidden truth that is inside of every single one of us. Darkness is very cunning and smart — but we have to stay true to our faith in the light.
We all are like Adam, the image of God. We each have a heart and a brain, but as a default, we each are thinkers first. We have a hard time making decisions that come from our heart that wants to love. Our heart intuitively knows but our brain is saying, “Don’t trust it!”
Life is a Test
Everything in this world is just a test. The darkness is like our clothes that cover us but we are trying to reveal our nakedness. Yet, our nakedness feels very exposed, so we protect it with more and more layers of clothing. We cannot reveal our naked truth until we remove all the different layers of clothing that is keeping the light concealed.
We retreat into where we are most comfortable — the darkness! It is our safe place that we know very well. But darkness is there for us to learn that it is not our true friend. Darkness will take us down a dead-end road every time.
We are all being tested. The darkness is not a bad thing if we can use it to empower the self. We can see when the darkness is there challenging us to overcome our weaknesses that typically caters to it. But we are not victims. Every single one of us has the power of God within themselves to overcome that darkness. We are being tested to see if we actually believe that it is there.
We are all here to find out that deep secret. We all are a secret. We all have that light that is hidden very deep inside of each one of us. The light is there just waiting for us to find it. The darkness does a great job to keep it contained and convince you that it isn’t even there. We never even know that it is there until we start looking for it. The darkness has completely convinced you that the light does not exist.
When our heart and our brain work in tandem with one another we become balanced. When we are in a balanced state we are ONE. We are then connected to the ONE mind which is ONE soul that is ONE Adam. We are one that knows the same.
God is not about knowledge because it is our experience that is teaching us. You do not have to be a Ph.D. or a well-respected rabbi to know who God is. In fact, the more simple you are the better. We all should be like a child with innocent and pure intentions.
Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.Matthew 18:3
God is about priorities. We have been suppressing our truth by oppressing our heart but the truth will be revealed when we learn the art of trusting our heart with our mind and by working together in tandem to achieve harmony and balance.
