The Illusion of Philosophy

March 20, 2011

God’s plan is supreme. We can take as long as we need to realize that.     Free Will allows us to make our own choices but not to evade, alter, or negate the plan. God’s Plan provides that you can take as long as you want and as long as is necessary to reunite with God.  That process may not be a sudden transformation(although it could be that also). It may be gradual and progressive understandings throughout many lifetimes. Teaching and learning may move glacially and in fact be learned and relearned many, many times.

God realized that to be co-creators with him we need more experience.  God realized that we wanted something different.   We wanted to be on our own, we wanted to be different.    When we (so-called) committed the first Sin,  left God, escaped from God, or came down from Heaven; God and Us created Time & Space.   Time & Space is our crucible. Time & Space is our means basically to struggle against ourselves until we realize our separation and strive to return to God.   Time and Space are Reincarnation.  Imagine if you will a giant playpen, that is our universe, we are God’s children in this Giant Time/Space/Reincarnation Playpen.

Let’s look a SPACE.  This is the Length(infinite), Width(infinite), & Depth(infinite) PLAYPEN that God created for us   Then there is TIME, immobile beings initially, he started us moving like little Geppetto’s puppets. This crucible was our chance to experiment and try things and then to try them over.  In many ways God says “go be a scientist & philosopher”, see what works for you in life.  This is not spite or vengeance or I told you so.This is the ultimate classroom.  This is God saying “I love you so much I’m willing to let you be, so that most importantly you can finally KNOW”.   GOD’S PLAN IS BEST. HIS LAWS ARE ABSOLUTE. GOD’S LOVE IS PERFECT.

As we struggle in that playpen, many of us run to the edge of the playpen and proclaim our experiments to God.  Philosophy is the question of “What is the good Life?”  Usually it’s thought of  in a plural understanding as  “everyone has their own” philosophy.   This is the illusion, that we can pick and choose reality or God.

God is the ultimate Toughlove disciplinarian & the Ultimate giver of Life and Love. While those in the playpen experiment with LIFE sciences & philosophies God oversees everything.   A child runs to the edge of the playpen and says “God, I’m an existentialist”.  God says “That good. Keep at it.”   Another child says, “God, I’m objectivist.” God responds, “Good luck with that”.  Others run hollering, screaming, laughing, “I’m a Realist”, “Phenomenology works for me”,  ” I’m an Individualist”, “Me too” his best friend says.   God shakes his head a little and laughs.   “Follow through little ones to the end”.

Three or four little ones say “I understand, I missed you, I want to be with you, I want to be like you.”  God takes them out of the pen, “Sure, but you have to co-create with me in the manner that you’ve learned ALL BY YOURSELF, LAWS ARE ABSOLUTE, LOVE IS PERFECT”.

Called or uncalled, God is present.

Mechanics of Karma(Spirituality 102)

March 15, 2011

How does it work again?    As like the natural law that we observe all around us.    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction – Newton.  All that we do is reflected all around us. If we help a child to read in this life then the next life will have others helping us to read. If we are selfish, then we can expect others to be selfish. If we exhibit unwarranted pride, we can expect to be thrust in with those that are unnecessarily prideful and boastful. If we control another person, in the next life we can expect to be controlled.  If we raise a loving family we can expect to be raised in a loving family.   

Why would normal people believe such far fetched ideas?   Isn’t reincarnation crazy, isn’t it  a religious belief in India?

It takes a lot of courage to step out on one’s own and listen to other ideas that may be true.

In 1901 Oliver Bartho gave Henry Ford a thin volume book callA Short View Of Great Questions.  It was written by Orlando Jay Smith  and contained a lengthy explanation of reincarnation that greatly excited Ford.  For the rest of his life Henry Ford espoused to any that would listen that he believed in reincarnation.  Why would Henry Ford believe such a UnAmerican Idea?    Because Ford was a  Mechanic.   He understood cause and effect.   He knew that when one piston goes down another piston must go up.   That to get B to work you have to do A.    That there is a continuity of motion from one object to another. This is Karma and he understood it.  He also felt that this explained his abilities and gifts for mechanical things, his talent for building things and designing things.   These were talents that he felt were acquired from previous lives.   Wouldn’t that explain why some people have exceptional skills and abilities, because they have been learning them for lifetimes. 

 Genius is experience. Some seem to think that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives.

I believe we are reincarnated. You, I, we reincarnate over and over. We live many lives, and store up much experience. Some are older souls than others and so they know more. It seems to be an intuitive “gift.” It is really hard-won experience.
