There is so much liberty in knowledge. While a belief is a hypothesis, science is the acquisition of empirical evidence to prove or disprove that hypothesis. We are slaves to belief until we do the research to find truth.
I would venture to say, the greatest problem in America and the world is belief. People rely too much on their emotions which are able to be easily deceived. The soul, however, searches out truth.
In this age, people are too lazy to do the work to find the answers. The people have given mastery of their emotions over to others, and they are too attached to others’ choices and actions. No one made any of us feel the way we do. We choose to feel as we do about everything.
The soul is love. The soul is diligent for real answers, but people snuff out the soul with the ego, because they are comfortable in their dis-ease. While the soul pursues correction and restoration; becoming one again with itself, the ego thrives on brokenness.
The ego is constantly judging every bit of information it receives as either good or evil. That judgment is completely subjective. There is no truth in it. The soul, though, will find the truth, and accept the truth for what it is. The soul doesn’t perceive facts and empirical evidence as either good nor evil.
So, in America, we have a whole population tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. Doctrines are nothing but subjective beliefs founded upon personal feelings. They have little to do with truth; even personal truth. This is why, even in the face of conclusive data, the average person in 2019 would rather attempt to explain away the facts to hold onto their beliefs than to adjust their beliefs to align with the facts.
People don’t want healing in 2019. Healing requires us to go deep, deep within the darkness of our souls to get truth; and once that truth is found, we have to be disciplined enough to alter our lifestyles to adhere to that truth. And most people are afraid of the dark.
You want to show yourself approved unto God? You’re going to have to be diligent. You’re going to have to investigate everything you have ever been told, and first be disconnected from the outcome, so that whatever you find out in your research, you accept it.
This is the ONLY way we will ever change the world for the better. This is the only way our Universe will ever be healed. Yes, feel the emotions, but in feeling them, be willing to admit that they are your own, and that no one else is responsible for you feeling how you do about a situation. Then do whatever you must to master your energy’s motion.
It is your rush to judge everyone else using your personal feelings that keeps you from finding the way, the truth, and the life. There is no path to righteousness in the ego. The ancient paths, which are based on science, not belief, will lead you to rest for your souls.
