Lesson 4. life's structural strength
"It sounds impersonal and technical, the title of this chapter – Life's Structural Strength."
… "It does. Yet the mechanical, technical and structural aspects of existence are beautiful. Perfect, if you want. Perfect in the sense of ever improving on itself. Nothing is just there. Everything participates in its own way in the intensifying of beauty, health, goodness, strength, joy, freedom, harmony and everything else positive. Nothing is iffy or vague about an idea that, once born in the spirit, becomes its own unique 'world', culminating in its outer appearance. This segment is about the inner cohesiveness – or call it the mind – of all that exists, be it the universe, a cell or a person. But realize that no presence on earth is not fundamentally affected by its being fabricated in and as a pseudo-creation."
THE FORCE THAT HOLDS ALL THINGS TOGETHER IS SIMPLY LOVE
ONLY ONE LIFE-SUSTAINING FORCE EXISTS; IT IS LOVE VIBRATING
WHATEVER ATTRACTS, TOUCHES OR FORMS A UNIT ACTS OUT OF LOVE
"What does it mean to function as part of the immense variety of structures?"
… "No one can force anybody to think of, reflect on or gain insight in how life works. Showing no interest in these lessons is a free choice. This right away is an example of one key component of life's structure: it thrives on the freedom to choose. Not that this freedom is not heavily attacked and maimed on earth in people, nature and matter. Yet, being in existence is proof for every particle and unit that contributes to the totality that they want it. They choose to do so. This is a situation unimaginable for humans. Still, for them too, all actions and attachments are based on a decision, whether one is conscious of this or not. Even if conditioned or forced to do things, how that 'fate' is treated is a choice."
EVERYTHING IN LIFE OPERATES BY THE DYNAMICS OF ATTRACTION
IN ALL OF THE POSITIVE STATE NO UNIT IS FORCED TO BE WHAT IT IS
ATOMS DANCING AND EMBRACING IS NATURE'S WAY TO SHOW LOVE
"How free are humans?"
… "On one hand, people feel free and know that they can choose. On the other hand they are dependent on millions of factors limiting their space to maneuver or be in charge. Take only the dictates of the body with its genes, heredity, dependency on gravity, food and air and on other people. Yet, however it may be obscured, fragmented and emasculated, free will is still the hallmark of human life. Why? Because otherwise human beings would have no reason to exist. The prime task for humans fabricated on earth is to take sides, even if this results in being destructive or pursuing lies. It is by and through humans that the crucial question is answered about the possibility of a life independent from its source, and to what not choosing love will lead. For this, some free will is essential."
THE COMBINATIONS ALL EXISTENCE CONSISTS OF ARE COUNTLESS
THE COMBINATIONS THAT LEAD TO NEW FORMS OF LIFE ARE ENDLESS
VOLUME AND DENSITY OF LIFE'S ONE SPIRIT CORE HAVE NO LIMIT
"Is volunteering to be born on isolated planet earth the ultimate in free choice?"
… "Not the ultimate. But it is one of the most noticeable, courageous and appreciated decisions in the whole realm of existence. Realize that the present cycle of time, with the negative state challenging not just the sturdiness of the universe, but the very integrity of the One Holy, is a one-of-a-kind and one-time-only occurrence in all eternity. Those who volunteer to lose their awareness of the real world and undergo the pseudo-reality of life on earth are shining examples of contributing to the fullness, the rightness, the beauty, the strength, the health, the freedom, the joy and the harmony of the universe. They are promised deliverance and healing from their exposure to the irreparable brokenness on earth."
EVERYTHING ON EARTH AND IN THE UNIVERSES HAS A STRUCTURE
LIFE'S VARIED OUTER APPEARANCES BELIES THE COMMON SPIRIT IN ALL
ALL CONNECTING RESPECTS AND ENHANCES THE JOY OF UNIQUENESS
"Can a spirit, or whatever it is called, refuse to incarnate on earth?"
… "The fourth name, aspect, face, of the One Who is the All-Presence, is Proper. It stands for and covers the whole structure and all functions of whatever exists. Nothing is out of place, disturbing or of lesser importance. There is not such a thing as refusing in a negative way on any level in real life. Freedom is not just a social mechanism or privilege, it is a component of life's very structure. All in being have it in common. Volunteering for a project comes from intuiting and concluding on all levels of one's person that this is the right thing to do. Understand the word 'right' as the desire to branch out, join, add, contribute, create, learn, experiment – and that always for the good of all. Declining to be born could only come from positive considerations."
AS GRAINS OF SAND OR STARS ARE ALL DIFFERENT, SO IS ALL THAT IS
THE ALL-AROUND DIFFERENTNESS IS NEVER A THREAT OR CONFUSING
ONLY THE NEGATIVE STATE MISSES THE HARMONY IN TOGETHERNESS
"What about people who seem to act in only negative ways? How will they be judged when their mission is over?"
… "The reason that the negative state came into pseudo-being is to show once and for all that there is freedom to negate any boundary. The whole building of being contains no cages for any of its occupants. Those who identify with evil portray the unnatural slavery as result of non-love and untruth. Will they be punished? No. Punishment is an invention of the negative state. Once one realizes one's accountability for misery inflicted on oneself and others, it causes immense pain. At any time one can choose to take the road back to normalcy. Theoretically, one could stick to one's acquired negative identity forever. But eventually, all evil and non-love will only amount to a universally rejected option."
THE ALL-OVER BROKENNESS ON EARTH SHOWS UP IN ALL PEOPLE
PEOPLE ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS AS HUMAN BEINGS
ANY INVESTING IN EVIL GREATLY COMPLICATES ONE'S RESURRECTION
"Those that will be rehabilitated, will they carry scars from their once-negative behavior?"
… "What remains of the present cycle of time is only its glorious aspect. Which is that the universe did not crumble, or in any shape or form copy evil's non-love activities. The One Who Is Proper proved the power of that name by not retaliating against being rejected and vilified. Before the onset of the negative cancer, the fullness of life then missed proof of being the only reality. Now, the final results of the pursuit of the "impossible' possibility are 'coming in. This leads to the beautiful situation that for all eternity and for all new cycles of being the One Who's love prevailed will be more honored and adored. No scars or bad memories will enter the new era. Purification from past evil will be complete."
THE NEGATIVE STATE IS RESULT OF TRUE REALITY BEING CHALLENGED
THE PSEUDO-WORLD PROVES THAT LOVE HAS NO VIABLE ALTERNATIVE
ALL OF THE NEGATIVE STATE WILL BE CLEANSED OR RECYCLED
"Freedom has many faces: social, political, personal, etc. There is freedom 'to' and freedom 'from'. Which one is the most important?"
… "None of the above. These lessons do not evaluate human situations. They do provide insight into life's universal dynamics. The first is that all has its origin in the nature of the One Who is the I AM of being, Whose fourth name is Proper. This covers all creating, functioning, togetherness and effectiveness. So the question has to be rephrased. Freedom forms reality, creates it! It is not more here than it is there. There is only one type of interaction, shaping a unit, making love, making sense or making anything else, and that is the touching and bonding out of love and from free will. Operating this way expresses the nature of life's glorious total structure."
FREEDOM'S INNOCENCE CHANGED WHEN EXPOSED TO CORRUPTION
THE ONE WHO IS LIFE'S STRUCTURE WANTED ITS HEALTH TO BE TESTED
THE PURIFIED HUMAN EXPERIENCE WILL ETERNALLY GRACE THE TOTAL
"Technical know-how and its applications increases, benefiting many. Is this positive and something to promote?"
… "Of course it is positive. Everything that provides more safety, health, pleasure, comfort and improves the quality of living is, if one cares to see it, a reflection of the Real Reality in which nothing is weak, crummy, malfunctioning or for only a few. However, it is also clear that any external progress, like building safer houses, providing better health care, creating faster transportation, etc., does not as such bring more happiness, goodness or justice. A huge price is paid in terms of more dependence on outer forces as energy, experts, economic factors and technology. Pursuing a good life entails harmonizing all spiritual, inner and outer forces. Technology and its products are negative when not serving true reality."
NEVER REACHING PERFECTION IS FRUSTRATING FOR CARING PEOPLE
HUMAN STANDARDS FOR JUSTICE, HEALTH OR BEAUTY ARE JUST THAT
ONLY ONE'S SPIRIT WITHIN CAN TRULY VALIDATE WHAT IS RIGHT
'Should each society strive for self-sufficiency, closeness to nature and a technology that profits everybody?"
… "It sounds like a noble ideal, but it is a pipe dream, as human history teaches. And why is this not the correct basis for improvements, although most political programs claim just that? It is unrealistic, because the situation on earth will not fundamentally change even if external conditions may seem to improve. Those can be enjoyed and should profit everyone, but the dynamics that hold society, bodies and minds together are all tainted by being disconnected from the universal design. It is the way earth with everything on it is constructed. It has the potential to evolve but it was put together without utilization of the wholeness principles of which the nature of the One Who is All is composed."
INDIVIDUALS CAN ACT FROM A PROPER PERSONAL COMMITMENT
PEOPLE CAN BE AN HONEST AND HEALING FACTOR IN THEIR SPACE
THINGS, LIKE ANYTHING IN NATURE, CAN DISPLAY TRAITS OF TRUE LIFE
"Are universal principles applicable on earth? Can they be recognized? Can earth life return to normal?"
… "Yes, yes and no. Like the I AM of life, all principles, dynamics and components by which reality's total exists do not change even when in the negative state they are mutilated, obscured and abused. They are the only reason that so much on earth still more or less functions. So the principles are there, but mainly incognito and contaminated. Yet, they can be applied. These lessons are all about this. All life-forms have some inkling of them, as they comprise remnants of reality's composition. But earth, being a faulty product, cannot be restored. Only in people's spirits, some lasting sanity and beauty can be uncovered and used for undoing some damage."
CONNECTIONS ON EARTH SELDOM INCORPORATE THE SPIRITUAL CORE
AGING, ATROPHY AND ABUSE MARK EARTH'S UPSIDE-DOWN POSITION
PREOCCUPATION WITH EXTERNALS, HOWEVER COMMON, IS SLAVERY
"How does one utilize the inklings of proper principles, so that life becomes better for more people?"
… "Not to be nit-picking, but is the purpose and meaning of living on earth to improve its quality, or is it to represent true existence in spite of all adversities and lies? The second option requires a primary focus not on circumstances that must be improved but on the desire to radiate and to practice what deep down one knows to be true, right and healthy for all, as it mirrors the Real Reality. The inklings, first of all, bring people to the realization that they belong already to an immensely richer, wider, safer and happier world than what earth offers. Sensing this comes with a strong desire to promote health and beauty everywhere, not as a goal or necessity, but as a consequence of being aligned with eternal life."
EVERY FUNCTION OF THE HUMAN SYSTEM CAN REFLECT REALITY
UNLIKE SO MANY CIRCUMSTANCES, ONE'S ATTITUDE CAN BE CHOSEN
CLOSENESS TO THE ONE WHO IS ALL IS ALWAYS ENLIGHTENING
"What is an individual's position amidst political and socio-economic activities, essential for protecting humanity and earth?"
… "It is erroneous to think that a structure is more important than its parts. It is the other way around. A corrupt government that passes laws that benefit many is still corrupt. But citizens living in a corrupt society are free – and capable – to keep their insights and striving pure and honest. Engaging in noble causes or producing beautiful things is not a substitute for one's mental and spiritual health. The sanity of humanity is in people discovering - and bravely holding on to - their and earth's universal and spiritual roots. Sanity is not attached to particular external achievements even if those seem to improve justice, beauty, health and protection for many."
EACH PERSON IS THE ARCHITECT AND BUILDER OF THEIR MENTALITY
ALL FORMS OF LIFE OPERATE AND EVOLVE BY SPECIFIC INNATE LAWS
ALL ATTACHMENTS ARE MEANT TO STRENGTHEN THE JOINING UNITS
'Say that a criminal or selfish person saves a drowning child, does not the result of this action count?"
… "In other words, what does it mean that at times evil situations seem to produce something positive? Can darkness produce light or can violence be healing? Well, when 'bad' seems to produce 'good', the only reason for it is that nothing is completely bad. What is negative is a distortion of what is positive. So the most weak, evil, sick or corrupt life-form is still a life-form and is as such relative to the One Who Is All Rightness. Therefore, also in an otherwise 'evil' person can a proper reaction break through, perhaps subconsciously invited. This potential can sustain the fight against society's and personal ills, however piecemeal. Ultimately, everything functions within the one structure of life."
BEAUTY AND UGLINESS LIVE IN AN AWKWARD COMMUNE ON EARTH
NOTHING IS TOTALLY GOOD ON EARTH – NOTHING IS TOTALLY EVIL
WITH CHOOSING, THE PRESENT HUMAN RACE ILLUSTRATES ITS PURPOSE
"How does knowing that ultimately the building of the universe is safe help with breakdowns in relationships, health, politics, etc.?"
… "Ultimately does not mean in the future. Right now, everybody has a place and function in the endlessly varied dwelling place of the One Who Is Life Itself. Participating in the negative state by being born into it, as all on earth are, means living in an all-around unnatural environment that shows only fragments of what true life is composed of. How one copes with this is up to each individual. The best possible and only truly productive way to face and fight any brokenness in one's environment is to keep one's spiritual self involved. It will keep one busy! Within one's innermost self, the blueprint for positive choices is as personal as universal, as practical as existential."
THAT ANYTHING CAN GO WRONG ON EARTH IS TO BE EXPECTED
REGARDLESS OF WHAT, THE SPIRIT WITHIN GUARANTEES ALL IS WELL
LIFE'S STRUCTURE, AS IT IS ROOTED IN THE ONE HOLY, IS ONLY POSITIVE
"A structure consists of a multitude of different parts. How does a single human person fit into life's complexities?"
… "One of the most revealing messages of these lessons is that each individual can consider himself or herself as not just the center of their world, but as its builder, creator, occupant, enjoyer, friend and perfector. Each person seems just a short-lived, tiny and insignificant fraction in life's total. Yet she or he is actually indispensable for the completion of life's fullness. One could say that the One Who Is All becomes vulnerable by each single emanation of life. Without exception, that new 'occurrence' is allowed to develop and take up room as a freely-responding partner before and in the Totality. Fitting in is not the issue. Choosing the positive is."
BEING SPIRITUALLY ALIVE MAY NOT SEEM TO CHANGE CIRCUMSTANCES
BEING SPIRITUALLY ALIVE DOES ILLUMINATE EVERYTHING AROUND
BEING SPIRITUALLY ALIVE THRIVES ON BEING LOVED BY THE ONE HOLY
"Is it realistic to see each individual and each piece of existence as a center in itself, and as responding to the total in a personal way?"
… "Realistic or not, people do just that: they see their world and think their thoughts from their personal center. So does everything in existence on its own level. These lessons invite people to realize that also their world can function in harmony with what its ultimate Center radiates. All existing means belonging to life's one structure and adding one's own volume to it. Even a stone has a relationship with the Totality in its own way. Humans should be concerned about their personal transparency for life's three-leveled fullness; not because of what good can be achieved but because it is the right thing to do, to be one's true self and so mirror the One Proper."
IT PAYS OFF TREMENDOUSLY TO SCRUTINIZE ALL ONE'S CONTACTS
WHAT HOLDS UP BEFORE THE ONE HOLY CONTRIBUTES TO HEALTH
WHAT ONE TRIES TO HIDE FROM THE ONE WHO IS ALL IS CANCEROUS
"It is difficult to imagine things or matter as freely responding to a personal Totality from a personal center!"
… "Yes, for humans this is incomprehensible. But when one realizes that all that exists vibrates, pulsates on the same frequency as the One Who lets it all come into being, then one can somehow understand that outer forms may be just that, outer, but that everything's core is a creative force that wanted it to come into being so that it has its own chance to develop, connect, join and be precious. All this in the context of their particular species, composition, purpose, potential, use, volume and density. Responding and reacting to being in existence is exclusively done by the particular life-form one is. Everything reacts to the same All-Presence. And through all, the Totality manifests life's splendid fullness."
EVERYTHING THAT EXISTS BELONGS TO A VARIETY OF STRUCTURES.
ONLY THE NEGATIVE STATE LACKS JOY AND HARMONY IN CONNECTING
THINKING AND ACTING FROM LIFE'S ROOTS MAKES A PERSON STRONG
"If these lessons were not available, or nobody would read or believe them, would that make a difference?"
… "They are read. Right now the one who reads this is addressed and has these words in her or his space. One can reject every word, but they do touch and therefore echo on some level. What if nobody believes them? This is a moot question. The spirit core in all matter, humans or spirits 'knows' what true life is – despite uninterested people considering this an irrelevant issue. These lessons can revive within each human being on planet earth that which hides within them. When this happens, that individual represents all of humanity – regardless of this is followed by most other people, by some, or by nobody. Heeding to the message of these words is happening. It contributes to the negative state's demise."
WHAT IS TRUE BEAUTY, JUST, RIGHT AND JOYFUL HAS ETERNAL VALUE
EVERYONE CAN STRIVE FOR HEALTH AND JUSTICE, IN SPITE OF EVIL
LIFE'S EDIFICE STANDS STRONG; IN THE SPIRIT ONE CAN DWELL IN IT
"Will closeness to the One Who Is the Lover and Partner of all always lead to positive changes in one's life?"
… "Of course. Any lie dismissed and any falsity unmasked lets in eternity's light and strengthens life's composition. However, nothing of this is automatic. Freedom of choice, the hallmark of love and realness, has to be at the base of desiring to find a dwelling place in the world of the One Who Is Only Love and Real. The yearning in people's hearts for safety and fulfillment is a significant sign that one's belonging to the real world is acting up. Choosing to wonder about this longing and its source and message is a decision people can make. It is not forced on anyone. Entering one's spirit realm with sincerity will only lead to personal enlightenment, inner peace and clarity of direction."
ALL HUMANS CAN SEE THEMSELVES IN THE PROCESS OF RESURRECTION
SIDING NOW WITH WHAT IS PROPER FACILITATES ONE'S EFFECTIVENESS
PROPER STANDS FOR HUMBLENESS, STRENGTH, CLARITY, EFFICIENCY
"Is the message of this fourth segment that one can experience some of eternity's safe and well-functioning haven while still in the negative state?"
… "Precisely. It is a glorious message and mightily encouraging, especially for those who are victims of the injustice and violence rampant on earth; or for those who live with ill health or broken personal relationships; or for those who agonize about why the harshness of life does not seem to let off. All that is positive, right, proper, healthy, beautiful, happy, just, harmonious, peaceful and exciting, firmly stands. It stands as the eternal structure in which reality takes place. In one's spirit one can dwell there already. Its safety can inspire one's way of thinking and acting on all personal, social and political levels. Thus honoring the beautiful love affair that all living and existing is."
ALL NEGATIVE STRUCTURES WILL BE DISMANTLED AND RECYCLED
NOTHING EVIL, CRUMMY OR TENSE SURVIVES THE VICTORY OF LOVE
PEOPLE'S EARTHLY SYSTEMS CAN ALL ANTICIPATE A TOTAL RENEWAL
