The Power We Have – Part II

Posted: March 19, 2015 in Our Broken World

Continued from: https://homelessontheave.com/2015/03/19/the-power-we-have-part-i/

All things in this universe are love given form to serve a purpose. We ourselves are love given form to serve a purpose. Our purpose is to be love. To move through this life with love, kindness, generosity, gratitude, and grace. To use forgiveness as the mechanism by which we embrace one another. For at the end of the day we all arise from a singular sea of conscious awareness.

Love is the only thing in this entire universe that is real. Everything else – all of the darkness, the evil, the hate, the greed, the suffering – all of it arises from the confused minds of men. This is why forgiveness is so important and why it is something that we must ALWAYS keep in mind, no matter what anyone says or does. That we are all one is an indisputable fact!

It does not matter what religion or spiritual tradition your follow – even if your dogma is science or atheism. I can point to a place in every tradition and dogma that shows that we are one. I can also point to a place in every tradition and dogma that says to be love! But society has done so much damage to us that we cling to our dogmas which just creates even more division.

The whole idea that we are separate from everyone and everything is at the root of it all. This sense of division from God and from each other is what fuels our longing for something more. Instead of letting go of the self and embracing our at-one-ment, we dive deeper into the self and use religion as a tool to justify our behaviors and our further support for the great lie.

My point here is that we are all confused to some level. Every single one of us exists somewhere on a continuum of conscious awareness. Those of us who are the most disconnected do the most damage in the world while those of us who are the most connected do the greatest good. The majority of us are somewhere in the middle.

The place we find ourselves on this scale has to do with the level of balance we’ve achieved within ourselves. The two factors are mind and heart. Our presence of mind has to do with the strength of our egoic consciousness. Our presence of heart has to do with the freeing of our beingness as love. When we let go of our egos and open our hearts we move upward on the scale.

Here is a short observation I made one afternoon “As the light of the sun may be made dim by the presence of a cloud, so too can the love in our hearts be made dim by the presence of confused thoughts. The sun did not stop shining; it remains behind the cloud. Our love did cease to exist; it remains just beneath our confused thought”.

This perfectly captures the truth of our existence as confused beings who have created a dark world. And yet God still exists as infinite love and infinite patience waiting for us to return to his glory. Not by blindly worshipping beliefs and dogmas, but by returning ourselves to our true nature. This is what it means to be enlightened, or to ascend. It is a return and nothing more.

Again, this sense of oneness is crucial to healing the divides that separate us. It is spoken of in every religion! Jesus said to love God and love each other. The Buddha said to embrace wholesome thoughts of loving kindness, and so on. It is so unfortunate that people spend more time arguing about systems and rituals than they do about agreeing on God’s nature as a being of infinite love.

If we could stop the nonsense that arises from our sense of confusion we could put an end to everything that ails our planet. Indeed, this is my main goal in life now. Since my own spiritual awakening I have made it my life’s mission to awaken this world to the truth of God’s love and his desire that we love one another selflessly. I will sacrifice everything to do so – because it is right and true to do so.

This is why I am selling everything and moving onto the streets. I am willing to make his sacrifice as a way to call attention to just how far we’ve fallen and how much damage we are doing to ourselves. I am not asking you to leave everything behind or go as far as I am going – but again, you DO have power. You have the ability to vote with your wallet and to take a stand for what is good and right and true.

If you stopped buying things – just spending your money on food and the absolute minimum needed to survive, the system would collapse in on itself. Of course then people get caught up in their fear, which is also part of the illusion. If the system collapsed we’d have complete anarchy on our hands – people would tear each other apart just to survive.

This is why the answer isn’t about just giving everything up. What I am truly advocating for – what I am willing to die for – is the great awakening of all mankind. Most people in this country will disagree with my position on this subject – which is just another symptom of our confusion, attachment to dogmas, and desire to remain blissfully ignorant while suffering unnecessarily.

If you awaken. If you learn to meditate on the heart breath and commune with God at a personal level. If you face your pain so that you can let go of it. If you begin to let God work in your life through synchronicities. If you embrace our oneness and see all of humanity as reflections of yourself – as aspects of God’s glory, then you can see the truth for yourself.

This is the ONLY way to heal our world. It is not by creating a new religion or telling others how to live. It is not about memorizing scripture and trying to justify our positions. If you awaken and establish your own personal, undeniable relationship with God within yourself, then your life’s purpose will be made clear to you and you will begin to do what you are truly called to do.  If you cling to a dogma – you aren’t there yet!

The idea that collapsing our social order will result in chaos would be true if we approach the future from the perspective of our present. But imagine for a moment that every human being is in tune with God and able to sense God’s loving truth within themselves. Everyone would be doing what God calls them to do and we would all be sharing, selflessly, with one another in the fruits of our labors.

Money, greed, power; hatred and violence; famine and homelessness. It all goes away… If you want to talk to me about faith, THIS is faith. To let go of everything and allow God to BE GOD, allowing him to take care of us as his most beloved creation, THAT is TRUE faith! If you disagree then I would challenge your faith in God. Live as Jesus lived if you want to prove your point to me.

There is so much more that I have to say to you on these topics and more, but this article is now quite long. I think you get my main point… It is time for us to awaken as a society and doing so is the only way to take ourselves out of our miserable state of existence today. Welcome to the revolution of love, light, and truth. Amen.

    Your personal relationship with the Manifestation of God is the most important feature of your human nature and civilization. Money is just a tool. No different that a hammer or a gun. Its what we do with them that is harmful or helpful. I’m working on improving human nature and civilization, not tearing it down so we can start over with some utopian philosophy. Every human being is a noble, precious and important creature. Thank God Jesus saved us. Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior of every human being, past present and future. The sovereignty of Jesus Christ will last forever. There really is only one Almighty God and Muhammad is His Apostle. Islam is submission to that one God. Jihad is our personal struggle to submit to God, instead of our own animal passion, our own selfish ambition. Baha’u’llah is the Manifestation of God for today. Peace be with you.

      Your passion is commendable, but this is exactly the kind of attachment to views that I am talking about. It hinders forward progress to immediately espouse ones own beliefs and opinions as if they are facts. You may believe that they are facts, but that does not make them facts.

      Let us agree to disagree and focus instead on the love of God that underlies all things 😉

        There really is only one God and He says that rejecting the Manifestation of God, is the same as rejecting the one true God.

        Bob – you are misguided but I love you anyway. The most important relationship you can have in all this world is the relationship you have with yourself. If you have not learned to fully love and trust yourself you will always be looking upward and outward for answers. It is not until you look inward – truly, deeply, and completely – that you will discover who and what God really is. I cannot reiterate this basic principle enough – and no amount of arguing will make it go away. By loving and trusting yourself you learn to love and trust others and God in such a profound way that you are able to leave everything else behind. From then on you can see the teachers from the past for what they really were – enlightened beings who surrendered fully to God once they reached their own enlightenment, and did whatever was asked of them to the best of their abilities. You do not need to agree with me – you just need to focus on loving and trusting yourself… This is your first step towards a light brighter than you can imagine. And God is the one waiting there for you with infinite love and endless patience.

        “Whoso layeth claim to a Revelation direct from God, ere the expiration of a full thousand years, such a man is assuredly a lying impostor. We pray God that He may graciously assist him to retract and repudiate such claim. Should he repent, Wod will, no doubt, forgive him. If, however, he persisteth in his error, God will, assuredly, send down one who will deal mercilessly with him. Terrible, indeed, is God in punishing! Whosoever interpreteth this verse otherwise than its obvious meaning is deprived of the spirit of God and of His mercy which encompasseth all created things. Fear God, and follow not your idle fancies. Nay, rather, follow the bidding of your Lord, the Almighty, the All-Wise. Erelong shall clamorous voices be raised in most lands. Shun them, O My people,and follow not the iniquitous and evilhearted. This is that warning We gave you when We were dwelling in Iraq, then later while in the Land of Mystery, and now from this Resplendent Spot.” (Baha’u’llah, The Most Holy Book, p 33-34, pp37)

        Peace be with you my friend.

        Keep in mind that you are posting your views on my web site and calling me a liar. I still love you but hope you realize that this is exactly the kind of thing I am talking about… Why can we not agree on the nature of God’s love and just leave it there? Why must you and others who hold to other similar views not just focus on being love. This is the place where we must part ways in conversation on this site. You should indeed hold to your views, embrace your teacher, honor your journey, but stand with love instead of against other views that are not in alignment with your own. This is my last post to this dialogue.
