A Spiritually Driven Life
Each of us is a perfect and whole representative of the Eternal, but we have not fully awakened to our spiritual potential as human beings. Great spiritual teachers have manifested on earth to aid in our awakening and harmonization. Though they faced serpentine conditions as we do, they chose to travel the Divine Road rather than the human road in their life journey. Like them we can chose the Divine Road and live their messages.
The Message of Divine Love
Jesus was a Great Friend to humanity and the earthly embodiment of Divine Love. He lived up to his purpose as Christ through his teachings and life, but he was publicly taunted, tortured and crucified because of fear and ignorance. The people of influence at that time feasibly did not consciously fear his teachings about love, rather his deviant and very empowering teachings that the kingdom of God is near at hand. He was aware of being Divine as well as human and taught that each of us can be the same way, since he is attributed as saying, "These things and greater things shall ye do." As an insurrectionist his teachings would have challenged the social and religious order.
Surely, Jesus did not want to die as he was fulfilling his life's mission. Nor would he have willingly sacrificed himself to atone for our sins, rather he was executed because of sin. Sin is a religious term that means transgression against eternal Laws, and humanity transgressed against the Eternal's representative of the Law of Love. Jesus, confession, or prayer, can not wash away or save us from our mistakes as the Law of Cause and Effect is ubiquitous; we are responsible for ourselves. Plus, the root of the word sacrifice is to kill off that which is negative in order to embrace that which is spiritual, so he conceivably would not have willingly killed off the Eternal's message of Love or himself, the messenger.
Jesus' great gift was his life as an example, showing us how we are meant to live a spiritually driven life. He chose the Divine Road. He left his ego behind saying, "It is the Father within me, He doeth the works." His teachings continue to inspire us to quest for understanding of and manifestation of our divine qualities Now, not in the distant unknown future of heaven or the divine revelation. They show us that we can manifest our divinity in our earthly life by being wise, kind, forgiving, honest, sincere and loving. Above all, that each of us can know that the realm of the Eternal is on this earth Now through spiritual awareness, faith and practice.
The Message of Divine Mind
The message of today is of like kind - the kingdom of the Eternal is within and present all around you in this very moment. The Divine Mind quality of the Eternal is hand in hand with Divine Love; they are as twins. It manifests in the world today as a blending of spiritual aspirations and science; they compliment and support each other harmoniously. That is why Science of Being is in this world. Eugene Fersen was The Lightbearer and Channel of Science of Being. He chose the Divine Road. The teachings have an attitude of Divine Mind aflame with Love, and they are the science of Your Divine and human Being. The teachings are to help us ascend from human to fully transformed Spiritual Beings. That ascension is achieved by a daily moment to moment mental awareness and moving with Energy, Wisdom, Law and Love; living the FourSquare. We are to remember to use Universal Life Energy and trust it as the Eternal's Spirit made evident. With perseverant application of the principles we harmonize ourselves and travel step by step closer to complete union with Spirit.
Just as Jesus and other Great Friends of humanity went willingly on a journey of spiritual discovery and life, we must also willingly take that journey. We must by and by face three similar temptations as Jesus did and make the choice for harmony: Do we hunger for fulfillment but live by human bread alone? Do we doubt the All encompassing Eternal and our innate Divine nature? Do we get lost in the human world of challenges, glamor and desire for influence and power? Apathy delays us. Doubt cripples our progress. And greed, pride, jealousy, fear and other subconscious traits pervert us. Experience teaches us that the human mind is the only devil of this world. It takes us on the human road. Yet, we can develop Faith and Trust in the Eternal and That which is within because we choose to change our thinking and the way we live in this world.
The human or Divine Road
The human road can be winding and pitted with so many challenges, temptations, glitz and glamor that it can distract you from living a spiritually driven life. But, even if all your desires are met and you have influence, power and money, it cannot buy true happiness or spiritual fulfillment. Like the Great Friends of humanity, we have the gift of free will and must make the choice to travel the Divine Road willingly and whole-heartedly, applying the principles of Divine Love and Divine Mind which are taught in Science of Being. Boundless harmony is within reach!
