From the Gospel of Philip
BAPTISM: When you say you will die first and then rise, you are wrong. If you are not resurrected in life, you will receive nothing when you are dead.
In other words, you have to awaken the spirit and soul now, while you are in your material life, or it will separate from you when you die and leave you behind.
THE WORLD EATS BODIES: The world eats bodies, and everything eaten in the world dies, Truth eats life, but no one fed on truth will find death.
That which kills and eats other beings is doomed to die, therefore the physical body can never be immortal. But the spirit and soul eat the Light from God, the Light of Truth, so they are immortal.
CREATION: The world came into being through error. The agent who made it wanted it to be be imperishable and immortal. He failed.
The fallen angels who created the worlds of matter failed to create an immortal world because they lost their immortality when they defied God, so they cannot create something immortal. Yet, the worlds of matter have the potential to become immortal again by letting God and His agents turn it back into spirit.
I saw a news article this week about the worst parasites in the world. The article left out one” man. While not all of us fit that description, fortunately, a great many do. We take from the planet and from others without giving much of anything back. That is the mark of a parasite. And while those listed in the article may cause thousands, even millions of deaths, man, in his arrogant disregard for the environment he live in, probably does more damage than all of them together.
The TV networks are already canceling some new shows after only a few episodes. I never reveal what shows are my favorites as that seems to guarantee they will be canceled.
In the story about police shooting a twelve-year-old boy “playing with a toy gun”, I think the police did the right thing under the circumstances. The biggest failure was that the 911 dispatcher failed to inform the police that both callers thought the gun might be a fake. If you think a pellet gun is a toy, you need to read reviews of them on Amazon where buyers talk about how good they are at killing small animals and how well they can protect you by putting someone’s eye out. The fact is that these guns are not purchases as toys and they are not used to play cops and robbers. They are used by punks to kill birds and small animals, and sometimes to shoot other kids they don’t like.
“Keep your mind quiet, steady and firm. Do not submit to desires, but try to control them. One who cannot restrain his mind cannot restrain his action; one who cannot restrain his actions cannot restrain himself; and one who cannot restrain himself cannot attain his real Infinite Self.” ~Meher Baba
