The world's problems today are not rooted in the social, the political, or the financial. Our problems are of spiritual nature. Our archaic systems of belief have long outlived their viability, and the time for serious re-examination is long overdue. Gone are the days of the one savior and exclusive access to salvation. In fact, we are (each one of us) our only true saviors and exclusivity is simple wishful thinking. Heaven and Hell are within and reincarnation is the most logical mechanism through which, all of life can evolve towards divinity. Fear, guilt, and divine retribution are no longer feasible means of describing The All-Loving Creator. We have got to outgrow our illusions of separation from one another and the rest of life for we are all part of The Collective, and The Collective is The Creator of All.
The Creator surely does not discriminate between all of His creation. He most certainly Is Practical, Pragmatic, Open, Flexible, All-Loving, Forgiving; and most importantly All-Embracing, and Non-Judgmental. The Creator is The Perfect Infinite.
So why would The Perfect Infinite limit Himself to one perspective, one truth, one way, one belief or more peculiarly, one race, one gender, or one species. The Creator Is All of Life and All of Life Is The Creator.
In other words, The Creator Is Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Baha'i, Pagan, Atheist, Homosexual, Heterosexual, Man, Woman, Black, White, Brown, and Yellow; and All Life Forms including Planets, Stars, and Galaxies.
By proclaiming to be selected by and favored by God is, therefore, an illusion at best and fallacy at worst.
Furthermore, salvation has many forms and shapes, and infinite avenues to reach it. The human body is made up of many organs that are equally critical to render it fully functional. No organ is more special than the other. Similarly, all of life is the body of God and no one part or aspect of life is more important that the other. They are all equally just as vital to completing the giant mosaic of life. In fact, this is a blessing since it provides all of life with amazing diversity in the areas of perspective, foods, life forms, beliefs, etc…
This new understanding of God and life needs to become common place in order for us to stop hoarding and start sharing, stop killing and start creating, stop hating and start loving, stop punishing and start forgiving, stop judging and start appreciating. If we are successful, we will prove our maturity to the Universe and move on to the planet's ultimate destination-One Planetary Civilization among other planetary civilizations.
This is not science-fiction nor is it idealistic. It is realistic and we have seen proof of it time and time again where we, the human race as One, make the unthinkable possible.
Our strengths lie in our collectiveness and not individuality. As soon as we embrace this new way of thinking, we would heal ourselves and our beautiful blue world.To begin healing so many of our current ailments, we have to initially heal our own spirit. A new uniting belief system has to emerge, not to displace what we have already been taught, but to expand on it and provide it with new meaning. The Divine created evolution so progress can be continual. Those who resist such process will be left behind as we head towards one planetary civilization.
I, then, propose reforms across all existing religions of the world to start teaching a new approach to God and life, a reinvented sense of personal responsibility, and a uniting spirit to help us attain our ultimate destination of one planetary civilization.
I hope you find the book to be useful in helping you shape your new life. Big Picture focus is what we are all missing from our day to day struggles with the many challenges of life.
This simple practical approach to living certainly puts things into perspective.
Once we develop a full picture of what is happening to us instead of focusing on why it is happening, we begin to understand that any suffering is only temporary on the road towards the highest good.
It is a great guide to help us cope with all the stresses and the many negative occurrences in our daily lives.
The universe hinges on the delicate balance between two opposing forces. Positive is balanced with negative, male with female etc…Therefore, every time you are faced with negative energy , counter it with a positive one.
Everyone lives in their own universe believing in their own version of the truth. The only truth out there is that there is no absolute truth. Your beliefs may be absurd to others just like their beliefs may be absurd to you.
