Imagine millions of planets spread across the universe with millions of civilizations inhabiting them. Imagine they are all different with different cultures and biologies. Imagine we have something eternal about us - call it a spirit or soul if you will. Imagine we can traverse immense distances almost at will - when we die biologically - we decide which planet to inhabit next.
Not all spirits grow. Some kill others. This does not produce growth. Spiritual growth is a unique phenomenon - every soul grows in its own way at its own pace. So some spirits come here for a chance to melee - just go crazy. That is not bad but it produces no growth.
The two greatest teachers on earth are Jesus and Siddhartha. One taught about love and forgiveness; the other taught about inner peace and transcendence. We were not ready for them. We are still not ready for them.
Love knows no bounds: an 80 year old and an 8 year old, same sexes, different species,.. humans are too attached to limits on love.
The earth is on the verge of dying/rebirth. Even if every biological creature dies on earth, know that our spirits/souls continue. Yes we all have souls: dolphins, whales, apes, humans,.. There is no distinction in the cosmic theater.
But it is not a game; it is more like a play. We all take our roles; sometimes we change roles. Sometimes we teach, sometimes we study, sometimes we lead, sometimes we follow, sometimes we stand apart, sometimes we group, sometimes we are aware, and sometimes we are unaware.
The most critical factor in consciousness is awareness. Jesus and Siddhartha are the two most aware souls. Note my use of verbs: are. Existence is timeless. Time is the most fundamental property of our universe. Time creates mass. Mass allows substance. Differentiation in substance allows life. Life is the corporeal manifestation of spirit. Spirit manifests through life.
Time creates the theater through two venues: mass and 'space for events'. The fact we have dimensionality and complex time allows for the complexity in our universe. The word has two different meanings here. Complexity is fundamental in the systems approach.
We come here to grow, we come here to learn, we come here to experience, we come here to play,.. and some come here to go crazy. Do not fret nor struggle with those who go crazy. It is their choice and destiny to fulfill that role.
Forgive, love, peace, and transcend: these are our goals for classroom earth.
