10) Eternal harmony will be achieved through balance. The human is the only creature that loses its part of the Song shortly after birth. It is the human animal that has thrown this part of the Universe out of balance.
Have you ever thought about the “cost” of free will? Or even about the fact that, for most people the “group” sort of thought that we are told is automatic within a hive, is foreign to a human? Much of Science Fiction is predicated on attempts to get into that sort of thinking and working with it as the premise for at least a short story line, if not the whole of some person’s life. But, freewill has actually cost the human being the ability to relate to the whole in a manner that sets one’s own “self” aside for the betterment of all, very seldom can we do it.
Yet, it is our grasp of our ability to decide individually whether we will wear a tie, or go chez casuale, that lets us be the “person” we choose to be. Here, though, there is cause to stop and take a look at this wonderful “gift”, for more than one man has written about the struggles to do what is desired only to fall back on an “older” version of “self” that is more willfull and and less “enlightened”.
See the New Testament book, Romans, chapters 5,6, &7. This is the writing of Paul, the converted, who had slain so many Christians in his zeal to serve Hashem. When he was converted, he decided that instead of bringing Gentiles into the fold, he would keep them at bay and breed a hatred of the parent faith in them, which is part of the reason I so dislike calling him a saint. He also is often called an apostle, by his own pen, which implies he walked at Y’shua’s side during his time of teaching, a flat out preverication. I am quite familiar with his works, but refuse to venerate him as “above” others in spirituality.
It is, in fact, the very attempt at “group think” that passes for doctrine and dogma that is the reason I do not call myself an out and out Christian. I do indeed love Y’shua’s teachings, and follow them as closely as any, but the “church” attempts to make it as though those who do not see Y’shua through Paul’s eyes are apostate and wicked. Well, I guess that makes me apostate and wicked. I will celebrate.
Sadly, here, one comes up against the very comment of this principle, that harmony needs to be acheived through balance. This can only happen when the humans who count themselves as leaders quit trying to do our thinking for us. They may influence, they may speak, but do not insist that I must choose not to think on my own. If you want a clone, go ahead, make one, we have the technology. Just move along and let others attempt to follow the light while you follow your own dark trail. When the preachers and the mullahs and the evangelists begin to take their lessons from the Rabboni, and understand that the nourishment that leads to harmony comes from Spirit, not man, we may make progress on this particular principle.
