- Beliefs: Origin of Modalities
- Anonymous Note
I received an anonymous note about 25 years ago. I've always known in my heart who sent it. She loved me yet was trapped in a marriage with a Fundamentalist husband friend of mine. I found her note recently, stashed in my journals. I've adopted it as my mantra to remind myself that the most important thing that you can do for another human is to give a solid reason to hope. There is nothing more hopeful than to cause another to believe in their higher Self, the one that eternally inhabits the higher realms. This ultimately is what Love is, and all about.
This is not 'flowery' language, nor is it idealism or Christianity. This is our default human nature. Don't get caught up in semantics such as 'science' and 'religion'. You know in your heart what's right and wrong. You don't need a religion telling you what to feel, think, and do.
Here is the anonymous note that planted the seeds that became my future. I believed it then, I know it now.
"There is nothing that can separate you from God's love
Never doubt that you've been called by the spirit of the Dove
to do a work that is vital to this time and to this place
Remember I love You"
To which I wrote a response just now:
"I'm really feeling the power of your love note and grace
I can do all things through you no matter what I face
We can transcend all things that seem to keep us down
Remember I love You"
I am really feeling that note and her love. For a lot of my Christian friends, God doesn't work the way we were taught to believe. Nobody talks openly or intelligently about their challenges in practical terms. They're just rehashing transactional theology, God as a Spiritual Automatic Spirituality Machine (SPASM).
That's to say that none of us are alone in this life. Despite the best efforts by religion and technocrats to separate us, all we have to do is help people believe in their higher self.
Note: my son believes that I've suddenly turned into a "religious freak", partly because he doesn't know anything about the Bible—thank God, pun intended—and mostly because his beliefs are still forming. I do not identify as a Christian because Christianity as we know it is political and transactional, just as it's always been.
