A New Commandment

Rays Of Wisdom - Astrology As A Lifehelp For Relationship Healing - A New CommandmentAs and when required, let’s remind ourselves that the highest potential of the porcupines of the human race – to return to this metaphor for a moment – is as great as our own, and that in the fullness of time they will bring it forth from within themselves, the same as we have done. It then becomes clear that our encounters with them are by far the best teaching aids for our earthly education. Rubbing shoulders with these people is excellent practise for living with the imperfections and inadequacies of others. They alone can teach us how to grow more tolerant and loving towards everybody and especially those who, on the surface of things, don’t seem to deserve it.

Learning to peer beneath the surface structure of all life onto its spiritual background is a good habit. It’s the only way we can learn how to love the unloving, in spite of themselves. After all, aren’t they God’s children of the Earth, our sisters and brothers in spirit, the same as everybody else? It is not necessary to like people in order to love them and that has nothing to do with condoning their hurtful words and actions. The ability to love everybody the way our Creator loves all of us, totally and unconditionally, is the most essential ingredient for growing ever more godlike. Without it we cannot return into the oneness with God.

We have chosen to be educated in a physical environment because we wish to gain control and mastery over all aspects of our nature. For this purpose the spirit and soul of each earthly self, under the guidance and protection of its Highest Self, eventually learns how to lift itself above the difficulties and temptations, trials and errors of the Earth plane. The many vexations they cause the human spirit and soul, each time it finds itself trapped in a physical environment, when it would very much prefer to freely roam the Universe, is exactly what we need to grow ever more in understanding and wisdom.

As we are witnessing everywhere in our world, there are many young and inexperienced souls in our midst, who must be receiving their early earthly training. Irresponsible and reckless as they are, can you imagine if such souls were let loose on the Cosmos in their present state, while they are still lacking the rigorous and unrelenting training that can only be received in our present existence? It’s not hard to imagine how much chaos and havoc any soul that has not been sufficiently prepared for higher missions could spread.

The Universal Christ tells us through the legend of the Master Jesus in the Bible’s St. John 13:34-35: ‘A new commandment I give you: that you love one another; just as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this everybody shall know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another.’ This single commandment does away with the need for all others. When we have learnt to love from the level of our soul, the way the Christ Spirit has always loved us and forever will, we no longer need anyone to tell us that killing, stealing, violence and crime, disrespect for our elders and all God’s creatures, including ourselves, is a sin against the law of life – which is love – and therefore wrong.

When at long least we show through our behaviour that we are capable of totally and unconditionally loving, respecting and accepting, without prejudice, the whole of life, including that of our planet, all its creatures and especially our siblings in the human family, we shall be a living proof of how the Christ child, the spark of the Universal Christ Spirit has come alive on the Earth plane. Sounds like a tall order indeed, doesn’t it? What else would you expect from young God’s in the making?

Without the need for following any of the belief systems of our world, we are then demonstrating that we are the true Christ’s disciples. This process is about spirituality and does not necessarily have anything to do with religion. The more we and our world are spiritualised, the more the significance and influence of the various faiths that exist to this day will fade into the background, until they have finally been forgotten altogether.

But even when unscrupulous elements sometimes shamelessly take advantage of people’s sympathy and compassion, to exploit them to their benefit, there is every reason to forgive them because only young and inexperienced souls will do such things, who are not yet aware of the consequences of their actions. They deserve that we send a small prayer for them into the ethers, maybe: ‘Father forgive them, for they know not what they are doing.’
