The Logos [Cosmic Christ] passes out of eternity into time for no other purpose than to assist the beings, whose body form he takes, to pass out of time into eternity... by his teaching he points out, and by his being a channel of grace and divine power he actually is, the means by which human beings may transcend the limitations of history.In some ways this planet is a school to learn spiritual truths and how to embody them. Or it may also be a holding place for souls to mature in order to be ready for spiritual awareness. It seems to me the immature souls are the ones flailing around creating disturbances, violence, and all manner of shadows.
We have a model and a partner to lift us out of the morass of history, shadows, the lie/appearance of separation and such. The means has come, yet the teaching has been subverted over and over again by immature, and therefore mean-spirited, souls. From inquisition to witch hunts, the opposite of transcending the ugliness of history is acted out.
The key to what we've been discussing would therefore seem be to mature spiritually and work on ourselves to become what we are called to be, to move from separation to walk The Ground of Being known and taught by a sprinkling of humans across the eons.
As a being in a body, we endeavor to take care of our bodies. We push them in exercise, sweating and straining to make them stronger.
As eternal beings, we might do well to apply as much effort and attention to strengthen ourselves spiritually. We need to firm up our spiritual "muscle" too. Study the great spiritual ones, meditate, contemplate, journal, pray, heal our shadows (any part not Christ - like), become generous with love, bring peace with us wherever we go, radiate kindness, etc.
I guess this interiority is done individually, one by one we come to our eternal destiny. Maybe peace on earth is not possible, but peace in you, peace in me is possible as we mature spiritually.
Lead me oh Divine One. Lead me to mature spiritually. Lead me to transcend history. Lead me to be all I can be. Maranantha, come Lord.
