Faith, Spirituality

The Struggle for Peace

Our world is a reflection of what is going on in inside of ourselves. We are born physically, here on earth, to learn our spirituality. Our spirituality is our true identity. We are all born into a Garden of Eden state where we don’t know. We are completely trusting our environment. We don’t know anything about it yet. We have no idea what spirituality is. We do not know who we are. We are given a name and begin our journey here.

Masculine and Feminine

The world we are born into is completely out of balance with the truth of who we really are. Our world that we begin to trust also does not know because it is learning their true identity too. Yet, we are trusting that our world is giving us a true perception of God and what is good based on what it knows.

Our world starts off small. There is only a mother and father. They are our world.

In our physicality, we are a brain and a heart. The struggle is deep within ourselves as we are internally struggling to achieve a balance between our brain which trusts what it knows and our heart which feels what is right.

Our brain is our path that our world taught us to trust. What is right has always been very limited based on the perceptions of those around us who we trusted. We do not know how to see into God’s world that is whole and perfect while living in the worldview of God.

Our brain is masculine because it is physically dominant. Our brain and rationale about what path we trust are in a constant struggle with our heart which wants to choose what is right based on a feeling. As a default, we will gravitate to trusting the path that has been with us since the beginning of our existence. Trusting our heart is scary because it means making a new path and rearing off the old one.

The goal is to become balanced within ourselves to have our worldview reflect what is going on inside of ourselves that reflects God who is whole and perfect.

Within the self are a brain and a heart, male and female, Jew and non-Jew that we are in conflict with. Adam is a wholly spiritual being.

The first man Adam became a living being. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:45

We are trying to repair all our paths, thereby, returning back to the whole, complete self. We are neither brain nor heart, male or female, nor Jew or non-Jew because we are all one. The soul of God is one whole.

The trick is to see with our heart that loves God who is in all of us. When we see all of us with our heart that chooses to love one another we will know what choice is the right one to make.

A New Marriage Contract

Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more. Jeremiah 31:31-34

Being in Love

When we choose to love one another, the heart of the man becomes dominant. We are not forced to love because we choose to be love. We know the Word of God because the word is our heart that speaks love to all of us the same. When we become love we become the law and are whole.

There is only Adam and Eve. Adam is the perfect Jew and Eve is the nations. We are all lost in a sea of a world that is out of balance because it rejects God who is in all, so we remain in darkness of knowing God complete in the self.

We will never find our way back to our perfect Adam until we learn to define love in ourselves by becoming love to one another. Because it is so dark in the world, it is actually easy to see the truth that we all are struggling to see. But because we are so programmed, we continue to trust our worldview instead.

We all are good and evil. Some are more evil than good and some more good than evil — We do not know what the percentage is but if we see the good in all of us, evil dies because we stop giving it power. Let evil behaviour be separate and thrive on its own away from the self by creating healthy boundaries. Don’t give evil actions any attention because that is what it wants. Eventually, if we see only the good in people and stop recognizing people as being “evil” then evil will go away.

Narcissism chooses to only see from one side and assumes the other is evil because it does not have empathy for the other. This is something we all need to fight in ourselves because evil, really, isn’t even real. Evil is a mask. We will stop experiencing evil when we stop believing in it. That is when we will experience what is good…
