What is history, what is reality and what is perception. I was raised in a Christian church and we read the King James Bible, as I still do. My struggle is history versus the past. The translators of the bible knew that the word for fear is much like the English word run. You can run a business and you can run a race… it is all about context. They undoubtedly knew that to stand in awe and or reverence was a meaning of the word, but they choose “fear” the lord and “fear” not for thou art with you are the same Hebrew word but they do not mean the same thing. Why did they translate that way? Why did they not translate it “be in awe of” the Lord?
Some say it was a covert act to set some men/women above others, much like the Pope. No one comes to the father except through me is not Jesus, the man, but Christ the son of God, why did they not make that clear. The most horrific part of this, is how do we know what God told them to write and what they wrote is one in the same. The most dangerous path through the desert is 5 degrees off course, not 50 or 75 or 100. “If the blind lead the blind” and “worship not as your father worshiped” has a somewhat clearer meaning now.
Number one lesson is to seek God in everything. Not one’s religion or beliefs. Many scientists have not found God because they are not looking for him, in fact they look to disprove him, yet they cannot. When asked many will say, I have found no evidence of a God… but what they are really saying is, I have been unable to disprove God. “Seek and you will find” and do not seek and you will not find, are the same stick, just different ends. The pioneer in quantum theory spoke of God often. He was looking for God I think in some ways and in some ways, he revealed God to us, by revealing the energy that connects all things.
Just for today seek God in all things, for God is all things. Feelings can blind you in this search, so take a moment and get quiet and just listen. Visualize what love is and what love feels like. Whatever love is to you will do, and it provides the means/lens to find and see God, because God is love. God is not fear. Fear is a human perversion made possible by our fall. If peace is what you seek, feel it today, feel the peace that only love can bring. Close your eyes and just feel love and peace, if that is what you seek. God is there and love is his language. Speak to him through the thoughts of love, just feel. Love conquers all. Just for today, judge no one, for acid destroys the vessel in which is stored, and this is not in the essence of love for all things God created. Love all things, for all things are God’s. Ditch the Caesar’s is Caesars misinterpretation. Practice Occum’s Razor today. If it conflicts, the simplest is true. Jesus hid meaning in parables to outsmart those that would try and filter the teachings of Christ. Look for the real meaning in the words of Christ. Look for God in all things and you will find him.
