Peace to you
The most precious blood of Jesus Christ covers us and this is its mystery
Genesis begins with creation,
and moves forward to the creation of man.
Of that man there came a woman,
and by that woman, children of the two parents.
The most infamous of the children were Cain and Abel,
the two to whom their story was written.
In this story the brother of Abel, Cain,
harbors jealousy for his brother and murders him.
Abel’s blood, being spread on the ground bare, cries out to God,
for love, for justice, for mercy, and compassion.
But most importantly,
the desire and cry of his blood is to return.
Jesus’ Blood resembles the blood of that story.
Jesus being Abel,
In crying out to Jesus with fervent sincerity,
We become washed of sin,
and covered with that Holy Blood.
This is the same Blood,
Which cries at the foot of Father’s throne,
And thus we return with It,
Longing for the Home from which we hail,
and the comfort of the Father,
Whom we love.
Last night as I lay in my bed I began to think incredulously at the vampire like thought of Christ’s Blood.
I was judging from a very worldly perspective and questioning my life and my ego.
And then something happened in my interior contemplation. It could not be understood by you unless you have felt it.
I can only describe it as this: God smiled at me a smile of pity, reminding me of my humanity, and in less than an instant taught me and made me understand this mystery. The same mystery which I wrote down excitedly and have now shared with you.
@backcase, If you could define the basic principals of what you’re preaching, you would find that those same basic principals have already permeated throughout the most world religions and belief systems.
The point is I don’t have to call these things the same name that you call them in order to use the fundamental principals behind them as a moral and ethical guideline from which to live my life.
Have we come full circle already?
It happens so fast.
@ehsan, Then why do you consider that only and not the matter of the thread. I never said that any others’ beliefs are wrong, but rather, I shared my insight.
“If you could define the basic principals of what you’re preaching, you would find that those same basic principals have already permeated throughout the most world religions and belief systems.”
Yes, I know that, but this thread has nothing to do with that thought.
I mean, you could at least explain what I wrote through your own perspective, yknow?
@backcase, “suppose all that we have to offer is ironical comments without thought or reflection.”
“I mean, you could at least explain what I wrote through your own perspective, yknow?”
You’ll find that my initial comment which you described as an “ironical comment without thought” did just that.
@backcase, I apologize if my first comment was not understood as I intended.
I’m not sure what you mean when you say “spiritual parallel to the soul,” but what I took away from the post could be summarized in one of your last points: “God smiled at me… reminding me of my humanity.”
Whether your talking about your soul or the society you live in, God or whatever motivating force we find is what guides us towards our humanity. Humanity is the unifying belief in every religion no matter what words you use or what language you say it in.
So when you say that God smiled at you and reminded you of your humanity, I experienced that same fundamental “enlightenment” when I read your op, only I had a different way of explaining it with words.
“I experienced that same fundamental “enlightenment” when I read your op, only I had a different way of explaining it with words.”
@ehsan, please do so :]
IE: When I mentioned my humanity, I referenced my reluctance to become new and my misunderstanding for the supernatural, brought upon me by my human nature.
