You would think that people would rejoice to know that God is not separate from us, that Spirit is a part of our very being, that God can be experienced now rather than after death, but instead many people cling to what they have been told and refuse to adopt the way of the explorer. Why do you think this is so?
You would think that people would rejoice that God does not us punish in eternal flames, but loves us unconditionally; that hell is not a physical place, but a consciousness of separation and a symbol of the important part of the spiritual journey called purification. But instead people cling to hell and the unreconcilable belief that God that is Love Itself can also inflict eternal pain upon Its creation. Why don’t members of the human family rejoice in this new understanding of hell and God’s love?
Sometimes it is easier to cling to the illogical and to hold to the beliefs of ancient people than it is to explore the possibilities that new insights provide for us and demand of us. It is amazing, isn’t it?
