True Spirituality is more all-encompassing than most think. It is also more universal than most think. God has been God before the beginning of this planet.

So, in the beginning, picture a great ether in perfect harmony and balance. It was not some impersonal force but indisputable and pure truth that was and is. I use the term ‘ether’ quite often but you may call call it ‘the mind of God’ or the omnipresence of God if you wish. Just don’t get hung up on the word ‘ether’. This ether was where all things emanated and originated from. All created things experienced the warmth of light and the rain that falls equally. There are creatures who knew and accomplished only the purpose for which they were created and never deviated from that path…but there were those in creation who had been given the power to choose, like human beings. Those who were created with the power to choose were given the power to choose out of respect and love for them in the hope they would choose respect and love for the Creator and fellow created things, for this only would be true love if those with the power of choice choose love of their own volition. Anything forced or coerced cannot be love or truth.

That which was created included sentient beings like spirits and humans. Spirits were created before humans for the purpose of serving the Creator and humans. All things were in great harmony until two rebellions took place, one among the spirits and one among the humans. Not all spirits and humans rebelled but some did. As a result of this rebellion against harmony and the Creator, a great disconnect and fall happened. The spirits that rebelled were cast out of the heavenly, favored presence of the Creator and forced to live as demon spirits that would not repent and further sought to mislead humans in all kinds of creative ways. Some of these spirits masqueraded and presented themselves as gods before humans tempting them to believe and follow them with all sorts of promises of power if they would but worship them. Others engineered human thinking and created all the religions as well as witchcraft and sorcery. They were and are good at deceiving humans and appealing to their lusts for sensuality and power. They created self-fulfilling prophecies that they manipulated to cause humans to believe many erroneous things. The spirits that remained loyal to the Creator were and are commonly known as angels. They both go by many different names but still may be divided into loyal and disloyal to the Creator.

So what humans rebelled? Well, the original couple. They are called Adam and Eve in the Bible. They go by different names in other cultures (Wurugag and Waramurungundi in Australian Aboriginal lore, Kanáti and Selu in Cherokee lore, etc.). Don’t get hung up on the names of things. Focus on the account and the lesson to be learned. I personally prefer the account of Adam and Eve because it doesn’t just tell an origin story it connects to a greater plan of future consequences and redemption. This story accounts for how we as humans lived in perfect bliss with all we needed, a garden of Eden. The Creator even came down in some form daily and chatted with these first humans. He gave human beings the power to choose so they could choose life, love and wisdom but there were other choices to be made or it would not be a choice at all. In the biblical account, the choices literally or perhaps allegorically appear as trees, one with good fruit and one with bad fruit. One is the Tree of Life, the other is the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. He tells them not to eat the fruit of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Enter one of those spirits we talked about overstepping his bounds and choosing the form of a serpent basically saying the Creator can’t be trusted and that he just doesn’t want you to eat that fruit because he knows you will be as gods like he is. These first humans basically choose to be their own god over the life they could have by listening to and adhering to their creator and designer’s instructions. This is often called ‘the fall’. It disconnected humans from the close relationship they had with their Creator. More specifically it disconnected their spirit effectively from the Creator in a sense bringing about a spiritual death.

Some might argue the point that the Creator/God described in the Book of Genesis was just trying to keep something from us or keep us enslaved. When God said not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil  He was not trying to keep something from us that was good for us. And He certainly was not trying to take away our power of choice. He was a loving God trying to teach the first humans something very important. He was trying to keep us from having the burden of having to decide what was good and what was evil. He was basically saying, ‘Trust me, I want only the best for you and let me show you what is evil and what is good’. He created us. He knows what He built into us and what is best for us. He wanted us to have the most fulfilled life we could possibly have. The creator of all living things including human beings spent time with the first humans instructing them, loving them, and teaching them and as time went on He instructed certain people to write down His Word so it would always be available to future generations. He saw human hearing becoming more and more dull and though they would not hear His voice He made sure they had a point of reference, an authoritative written word we could trust. When Adam and Eve partook of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil they didn’t just eat a fruit they took right and wrong, good and evil into their own hands for them to decide. Then where does that leave us when flawed human beings decide what is right and wrong? Moral Relativism. In Hitler’s mind, he was right and everyone else was wrong and he felt completely justified in killing six million Jews. At this writing transgenders are in our schools twerking and exposing themselves to our children. There are even those who try to promote pedophilia as right victimizing innocent children. Where does it end? If what is right and what is wrong is decided based on the ‘flavor of the day’, where does it end? Who is right? So, where does that lead? Our lives become based on some menu handed to us to decide who we will believe and WHAT we will believe.

This disconnect from the Creator via the death of our spirits caused human beings to wander in more ways than one. Humans came up with all kinds of crazy explanations of things and came up with all kinds of religions which divided us and divided us again and again. Humans became baser and more sensual and made their choices largely based on our sensual appetites and what served us or made us feel good which led more and more to a pursuit of instant gratification and an appetite for that which would not ever satisfy. It was like drinking water that only temporarily satisfied our thirst. Unfortunately, the thirst and appetites of humans centered more and more around selfishness, lust, power and sensuality. What humans needed was a rebirth and reconnection of our spirits.

This pattern played out most of human history. The sum of human choices is responsible for the world we live in today. But the Creator did not leave humankind to just reap the consequences of their choices and actions for all eternity until they destroyed themselves. He came to humanity in human form, one that is called the Son of God and Jesus Christ in the Bible. Other enlightened prophets and teachers pointed to and foresaw this event. Humans had basically built up a huge debt of trespasses against their own kind and the planet they were given. All were guilty either directly or by association. No human born could undo the mess humans had made to their own families and nations. No one could undo the mixed-up divided madness of what had now become millions of religions all proclaiming their way was the right way. Only the Creator could see clearly what needed to be done and only the Creator could do what needed to be done. He paid the price by paying a sacrifice in the blood of himself. The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is more than just a story of a prophet being martyred for what he believed. The Creator is the master of life and death and only he could do that which was impossible for any created thing to do and that is to die and rise again. And this combination of flesh, blood and God crossed all lines and redeemed all that human beings had undone. But still, in his love, he still would not take away humanity’s power of choice and just made redemption a choice and a gift to receive. The Bible calls it being ‘born again’ (John 3) which is a good way to put it for our spirit which was dead could now be reborn a new creature, reconnected and empowered.

In conclusion, I would like to say. True Spirituality is more all-encompassing than most think. It is also more universal than most think. God has been God before the beginning of this planet. God has expressed himself in many dispensations. In that process, he has NEVER contradicted himself. Humans, on the other hand, have basically interpreted these dispensations in ways that very much contradict one another usually to suit their own comfort zones. Humans have related to God in many different ways; some just walked it out and believed everything they did went up to the Creator, like the Native Americans, and their very life was a prayer going up to God, others built tabernacles and validated forms of approaching God such as kneeling, going to church, etc. Humans too often let the way of approaching God become more important than God himself and this leads to all the origins of religions we have today and in the future. Jesus fulfilled them all by becoming the Word made flesh, the way, the truth and the life. The Holy Bible records on a small scale of time and places universal truths for all time, all people and all places. ALL interpretations and spiritual truths hinge on and are checked by the truths explained in the Holy Bible chiefly on the teachings of Jesus and as detailed by the apostles. For our modern times and purposes, the line drawn in the sand was Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. There is a reason that all human history is B.C. Before Christ or A.D. Anno Domini, The Year of Our Lord. Our atheistic culture tries to change that time designation but they cannot change the truth that all time was split in two at that moment before and after Jesus entered our world. On his words hang all truth and any contradiction of his words is not truth at all. He designed us. He knows what is best for us. We would be wise to follow his design for to do otherwise is to the detriment and ultimately the destruction of life as it was meant to be.
