In the last writing we showed you some of the man-made teachings of the woman being subservient to the husband. This concept is, unfortunately, promoted by some Christian sects. This is a concept promoted by man to have the upper hand.
We also presented one of the Teachings about being equal. It is obvious that man has, throughout the ages, altered the words and intent of what Jesus really brought to the world, his sayings. This is why he taught “keep my sayings.”
Here is what he had to say: “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.”
Here is another concept promoted by man, “competition is necessary for growth and development.” It certainly appears that way. We believe that cooperation is the way to go. By finding the commonality amongst several people, companies, organizations, you grow the strength of the mission.
By working with others, ideas stimulate ideas. They should be, on some levels, stepping stones to the next level, the next insight, the next awareness.
This is especially powerful if all are united spiritually in the sense of understanding that God dwells within and is a Force we all can use to strengthen our cause.
This last concept man promotes takes the cake. “Material possessions make one whole and complete.” It is such a lie, it is a distraction. Because of this man-made concept, millions have died in wars throughout history because someone wanted more. It seems that part of the material possessions package is in owning everything you can, including people. What is funny about that thinking is you can’t take any of it with you.
Look around you. Look at your life. See where the material considerations are a distraction from looking within. Examine your possessions. Do you really need all that you have? What purpose do they serve? Those are some of the questions you need to ask yourself.
If you don’t need it, give it away to someone who does, or sell it. Free yourself from these encumbrances. They are a false sense of security.
There are more concepts at work in our society today. See what you can see as concepts. See how they affect you. See how they affect others. Grow your awareness by trying to see the root cause of things. Remember, everything is a form of energy, with a thought behind it. See the thought. Understand what is taking place.
