Many question, “If there is a God then why. . .,” or “If God is loving, then why. . .” “If God is good, then why . . .” Fill in the blank, we’ve all heard (or said) it. The answer is free will. We have free will, we can do what we want, and crap happens. Choices have consequences. What joy would God have, what joy would we have, if we were created as robots? How boring would that be?
MK 10-14 “We also know that this mind is static, mind at rest, we also know that the ability of the individual to think is his ability to act upon the Universal Mind and convert it into the dynamic mind, or mind in motion.”
So, I never realized that I’m a part of an electrical circuit. A flashlight has a simple circuit of a switch, lamp, and battery linked together by a few short lengths of copper wire. It all works together to create light. The switch is off, no light. The lamp burned out, no light. The battery dead, no light. The wire broken, no light.
So it is with us – Creator, Sun, Food (fuel), Me, Thought, Dynamic Mind, Effect. Simplistic, I know, but like the flashlight, remove any piece of this circuit and there is no “light”. Really a fantastic thought that I am an integral part of the continual change.
MK 19-12 “We are in the presence of continual change, and we know that this change is but the evolution of the Universal Mind., the grand process by which all things are continually being created anew, and we come to know that matter is but a form which Mind takes and is therefore simply a condition. Matter has no principle; Mind is the only principle.”
Good is a reality, something tangible, evil is a negative condition – the absence of good. Truth destroys error – but some people cling to error. Light destroys darkness – but some choose to live in darkness. Evil vanishes when Good appears, but we have to choose good. “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.” John 3:19
Thinking of all who have ever lived. or will live in the future being a part of the continual creative process is more than I can fathom!
