“Will matter be destroyed or not?”
“The Savior said, All nature, all formations, all creatures exist in and with one another, and they will be resolved again into their own roots. For the nature of matter is resolved into the roots of its own nature alone. … ‘That is why you become sick and die, for you are deprived of the one who can heal you. … Matter gave birth to a passion that has no equal; which proceeded from something contrary to nature.’ … Beware that no one lead you astray saying Lo here, lo there! For the Son of Man is within you. Follow after Him.” Bernard Simon(quoting in part from the Akhmin codes)
Jesus didn’t answer the question with a simple Yes or No. That’s because it is a complicated idea that depends in some ways on you. If you are a materialist who thinks nothing exists beyond the material then from your point of view it will be destroyed. In reality, however, it won’t. Matter will be simply transformed back into its original state as spirit. Back to its root, as Jesus said. Matter’s end is really matter’s rebirth.
Within Each Other
“All creatures exist with and within one another.” A very meaningful statement. First, it doesn’t separate humans from the rest of the world. Although we certainly are special, we are still part of the physical world and one with all life in this world, whether we realize it or not. The idea that we were put here to conquer and destroy all other living beings on earth is just sick. Satan is master of destruction, not God.
But how do we exist “within” each other. That’s where things get really complex. First, many spiritual schools say that us humans are responsible for the other life forms we share this realm with. Responsible in the sense that they take forms based on our thoughts. Not only forms, but their behavior is controlled by our thoughts. This is why Jesus and many prophets warn that it is not just our actions, but also our thoughts that matter. Thought is energy and energy does work.
Sickness and Death
We suffer sickness and death because we don’t understand our own nature. We don’t realize how much our own thoughts, and those of others, contribute. When we feel we have misbehaved and subconsciously believe we need to be punished, we allow disease to enter us. The same thing happens when we get angry with ourselves. And when we do things that make others angry with us, we are weakened by the negative thought energy they send our way because of it.
But even with total control or our thoughts, and those of others, we would still grow old and die. That is because it is the very nature of the temporary physical realm that all things in it change, age, and die. That is why the only solution is to become spiritual. The we can help in transforming our world back to its original state in which there is no death and no disease. Matter’s End is the caterpillar becoming the butterfly.
