Falling In Love
The first question: “Do you believe that you have experienced soul contact with another person? If so why is it that you were able to do this and what did it feel like?”
A number of the group related interesting accounts of how they have had soul contact with another. Someone mentioned that falling in love opens the door of the soul. This is true.
The first step a person does make toward shared soul contact is falling in love.
Think a moment. What causes a person to fall in love with another? What makes it happen is that the couple for a short period overlooks every possible fault and imperfection in the loved one, even if those faults are glaring to friends and family. When you look in the eyes of another and see only perfection what do you see? You see the face of Christ and this opens the door of the soul.
Thanks to the attractive forces of the polarities most males and females in relationship feel the power of the soul through romantic love. The power of this love works to give average people a belief in the soul that stays with them for many lifetimes until the time comes that they begin to hear the still small voice and move on to higher spiritual feelings.
Now what causes this powerful and wonderful love in a relationship to dissipate and sometimes turn to love-hate or even hate-hate?
When the love subsides the two people are still the same people with the same faults. They should be just as lovable as ever, but to their partner they do not seem to be. The reason? Instead of seeing the face of Christ in each other they now are looking at the lower imperfect self.
Now the male sees his mate with many irritating traits and ceases to adore her and has amnesia of the Christ he originally saw in her. She sees a guy who just sits around and watches football and doesn’t seem to pay her any attention.
Neither of them seem nearly as cleaver, smart or funny as they were in the beginning. All of these faults distract the vision from the good, the beautiful and the true to the negative, the ugly and the false.
What is the key to returning to love?
Answer: Another divine characteristic must be brought into play and that is will. Will as an aspect of God must be brought from heaven to earth and we must use this will to force ourselves to look beyond the imperfections of the other and back to the perfect face of Christ that has never left our loved one. Will can resurrect the Christ and the love in a relationship so the end will be as it was in the beginning
Question: “Do you feel one in the soul with any other members on the group?”
A number of you gave a positive response to this. As time passes the communion of the members through the soul should substantially increase despite periodical flare-ups.
Question: “What are the barriers that prevent two people from entering soul contact together and experiencing the Oneness Principle? How do we overcome these barriers?”
We talked a little about this as it applies to a romantic relationship, but the same principles apply to all relationships.
If you have a friend or co-worker and all your attention is focused on what is wrong with him this takes your attention away from the face of Christ that is within him. Again, by an act of will we must direct our attention away from his faults and toward the soul. When this is done the seeker can then sense and realize the oneness of all mankind and that his brother on a higher level is one with him.
Question: Can we have an awareness of the imperfections of another yet still see the perfection within? How is this possible?
The scripture says: “They shall see eye to eye when the Lord shall bring again Zion.” How can a group see eye to eye without the imposition of strong authority? We see how difficult it is with us don’t we? Is it possible for a large group to see eye to eye?
A skeptic associated me with some New Age teachers with some strange views.
I am happy to defend my teachings, but I cannot defend the mishmash of philosophies of others.
The only problem you seem to have with me so far is what I have not done yet. There are billions of good things all of us have not done. Do you have any problems with what I have done – that is with my “works” the true criteria by which Christ said we will be judged?
I invite you to continue to stay on the group and participate.
Comment: “Seeing eye to eye in this context does not mean agreeing on every little thing like mindless robots which is the fruits of strong authority. But rather agreeing to overlook one another’s faults and allowing individuality, and guarding the free agency of one another, agreeing to disagree etc.”
JJ: No one said that seeing eye to eye is being like a mindless robot. Seeing eye to eye through the Holy Spirit uses all the heart and the mind so if anything being one in Christ is mind-full and heart-full,
If seeing eye to eye is “agreeing to disagree” then there should be plenty of people building Zion right now. Zion awaits a people who can see eye to eye in the building of God.
In our lower natures we have many disagreements and when we reach a dead end we may agree to disagree. Many people without soul contact do this daily. But as we approach building the kingdom of God, points will be reached where agreeing to disagree will not work but will cause progress to come to a screeching halt. When this happens the Oneness Principle must come into play and the two must contact the Spirit through the Soul together. Then the Spirit which is One reveals the same principle involved to both of them at the same instant and then two or more entities become as one mind joined in the one mind of God. The instant the revelation is received they no longer agree to disagree, but agree to agree, providing both abide by what they have received and do not deny the revelation of the Spirit. They will then move ahead seeing “eye to eye.”
Notice that it does not say eyes to eyes? This is because of the emphasis put on the unity that is attainable through the window of the soul.
