The Aquarian Revelations – Part Fifteen
The Beginning Of Wisdom
As long ago as in the days of the Old Testament, the Bible told us in Proverbs 1:7 ‘The reverence of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; but fools despise knowledge and instruction.’ If one replaces the word Lord with ‘law’, a different picture emerges straight away. The St. James Bible translated this into ‘The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom’. What life requires from us, however, is that we should respect and revere, to use the word of the Lamsa Bible translation, the Universal laws and conduct our lives in accordance with them, i.e. with right thoughts, words and action.
As God and the Angels told us through the Buddha legend, this manner of living alone can eventually bring us the much yearned for freedom from unhappy events. They are the harvest of the seeds we sowed, in our ignorance of these things, carelessly and thoughtlessly earlier in this lifetime or previous ones, sometimes many lifetimes ago. That’s how the Universal law of cause and effect or Karma returns the fruits of our efforts of times gone by. More about this theme in the next chapter.
The same as we are the creators of our own unfortunate circumstances, it is also possible to influence the flow of our destiny in positive ways. This is done through taking responsibility for ourselves and consciously changing our character into a better and more agreeable one. The knowledge of such things provides us with real power. It is the instrument the Universe wishes to place into every human being’s hands, so that we can free ourselves from the karmic chains and shackles of the past and stop creating new ones. When the last one of our karmic debts has been paid and redeemed, there will be no need for further earthly lifetimes. Our spirit/soul will then be allowed to move on and we shall continue our studies on the higher and eventually highest levels of life.
For thousands of years our Creator has suffered from an appallingly poor press. Take for example Deuteronomy, one of the most ancient books of the Old Testament of the Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, in the order of their appearance. Deuteronomy in ‘The Song of Moses’ 32: 35 tells us: ‘To me belongs vengeance and I will recompense them at the time when their foot shall slip, for the day of their destruction is at hand and the misfortune that shall come upon them makes haste.’
Such teachings presented our world with a highly negative, jaundiced and unfair image of our Creator. Ah, but wait a moment. Just exchange the word Lord for Law, namely the law of Karma. When you have found a better understanding of this law, in the next chapter, I guarantee you that for you the perception of our Creator will change into one of utmost justice and kindness, goodness and love. Even though the legend of the Master Jesus tried to convince us that our God is love, the story has little credibility for as long as Christianity pretends that every word of it is quite literally true. One of its hymns tells us:
‘Listen to Me, My people;
Give ear to Me, My nation.
A law will go forth from Me
And My justice for a light, to the people.
‘Ignorance is darkness and knowledge is light.
In the course of many earthly lifetimes,
The perfect justice of My Universal laws,
Takes every human being from one extreme of
This state to the other.
That’s how My law of Karma in the end brings
Light, i.e. knowledge and understanding
Of who and what I truly am and who and what you are.
That is the light that eventually wakes up in everybody
And you can see for yourself that
All of you are My people.’

No spiritual progress is possible unless someone explains what kind of law the song is speaking about and how it affects Christian listeners and their lives. Sticking one’s heads into the sand ostrich fashion and denying the existence of the Universal laws does not make them go away. Viewed from our present perspective, it is not difficult to see that many of the false beliefs that still exist in our world once were necessary but that the time has come for shedding them, one after the other.
For example, the belief that earthly life is a one-off thing has been with us for thousands of years. It has been an essential part of the curriculum of the earthly school of life, provided – like everything that exists in our world – for us by the wisdom and love of God and the Angels. If we had known all along that there is a world of spirit, to which we return at the end of every lifetime for rest and recuperation and to find peace and healing, each time the going got too rough for us on the physical plane, the temptation to opt out would have been impossible to resist for tired and wounded earthly selves.
Yet, without being ignorant of these things, we and our world would not have been able to make anything like the spiritual growth that was achieved by us and our world, on the individual and collective level. Therefore, let’s not begrudge this part of our development, but give thanks for the boundless wisdom and love of the Great Father/Mother and their Angels who have always provided us with lessons that were and to this day still are just right for us. Rejoice that this sad chapter in the history of our world is definitely closing now.
Every part of my jottings is an attempt at finding a better understanding of the spiritual background of our earthly existence and the processes that rule all life, including ours. It is possible to get to know our Creator through this and I hope that it is going to provide you, dear readers, with your own perception of the Great Father/Mother’s loving care and attention, and that for each and every one of us. Before God we are all the same and from the lowest to the highest we are equally loved and cared for. The more one finds out, the more one realises that the bad press of the past was never justified. It then is the most natural thing in the whole wide world to kneel in worship and adoration before the Highest.
