There is a thread of Truth that runs though all major religions and spiritual philosophies. From the wisdom of Plato to the Mystery Schools of Egypt; the wonderful love, Light and wisdom of the Zoroastrianism of Persia to today’s Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism there is a common thread of Spiritual Law and Truth.
Once we strip away the dress codes, the rules for worship, the do’s and don’ts we can see that each religion comes to the same conclusions about life, God and humanity; couched in different language and custom to suit differing cultures and peoples. The truth is that there is a Divine Mind, a First Cause that is the Creator.
Perhaps its a Life Force, perhaps a Great Soul or a Great Architect of the Universe but it is clear that something greater than the human mind engineered and designed this Universe and many others. Did we engineer DNA, the pattern of a snowflake, the perfect cocktail of gasses to allow life to thrive on Earth or the miracle of photosynthesis which creates the oxygen we must have?
Did we create the miracle of conception and birth, the perfect balance of plants absorbing CO2 and breathing Oxygen while we breathe Oxygen and exhale CO2? It’s just too perfect to be random.
Consider this: What is God was a just a nickname for Divine Mind, Universal Intelligence in which we live, move and have our being? What if we swam in this great Mind like a fish swims in the ocean? What if we lived every hour of our lives immersed in God as our cells are in us? Kind of blows your mind doesn’t it?
What if God is not our parent but the Mind of the Universe that creates all that is? This God would not punish or reward because only parents do that and God is not a parent. God would govern the Universe by Law, both physical and spiritual. What if we really did reap exactly what we sowed? The Law of Cause and Effect just may be the Mother Law of the Universe! God is the Cause and all that exists , including us, is the Effect. What if we have had it backwards all the time?
What if life does not happen to us? What if we happen to life? What if our thoughts, words and the choices that spring from them are the authors of our lives?
Could it be that we are the creators of our life experience, the “driving wheel” of our life? What if we are the producer, director and principal actor in our own movie of life?
These questions and thoughts are the essence of the perennial philosophy called New Thought, Unity, Religious Science, Science of Mind and Unity.
What if Science and Spirituality are heading to the same place? One through study of the Physical Laws of the Universe and the other through Spiritual Law?
You may live to see Science and Faith come together; we already practice these ideas every day in Religious Science and have for almost 300 years in one form or another.
What if Evolution was just God’s update system? Wow, consider that!
