The Flashlight of Living Faith
It’s dark here, in the womb of the earth, before we become new souls with eyes of light.
These eyes of light are created from the union of our soul with divinity. Our eyes of light are manifested when our soul’s eye, the genesis of our perceptions of what we do see, is connected to the all-knowing eye of our Father, so that his perception governs our perception. In this union, our awareness is filled with light; perceiving everything from the real and everlasting absolute truth and divine love of our Father. It’s a harmonious perspective with our Father that enables the gentle yet powerful inflow and outflow of his divine love and intellect through us, thus regenerating us into new souls.
But while in this womb state, we lack the true eyes of light; as these eyes are the results of a soul of divinity. In this disconnect from the all-knowing source, our perceptions are ones that only know our individual mind, thus are vastly limited and often tumbling into error. We are walking around as blind people, a blindness by our own perceptions as to what is real and what isn’t. We are all in the womb having never been outside, and yet trying to guess. This is why there are so many images of who our Father is, what our purpose here is, how to live, and so on. We only know the womb. Imagine a bunch of embryos of all levels of development trying to know what is outside of the womb, that’s us. This is why we all have such varying perceptions of this reality and everything in it. And why we need to give each other abundant mercy, for we are doing what we can in a world of blindness.
Therefore, if we perceive a sliver of an object and I sense it from one angle and you another, we will never agree to what it truly is. If we share similar perspectives because of our past experiences and what we learned or gained from them, our perspectives may be more similar and thus we find agreement, though it doesn’t mean it’s correct. For example, imagine we are walking in complete darkness. You feel a lamp. Now you may think it one thing and I something else, but how can we know for sure its true nature, purpose, and internal structure? We can’t unless someone who sees teaches us. It’s like two blind people arguing over what they can’t see, thinking they both see clearly. So it doesn’t matter how many people believe something it doesn’t mean they are correct, as history teaches us. People follow what sounds good to them, but that doesn’t mean it’s true or right. In this state how can we be sure of anything we know?
There is a “light” available that helps us, which also causes us to develop in this womb so that we can we born out of it, with eyes of light. It’s living faith. Our soul development is a testimony that we “perceive” this light.
The only true light here is a living faith, that though we are still in darkness it serves as a dim light that can grow brighter, like a flashlight with a dimmer switch. It shines from the inside out, by the influence of our Father’s love into our lives through his holy spirit, and from the intimate instruction of Jesus Christ. This faith is constructed out of their personal instruction of absolute truth and divine love to our soul.
However, suppose you and I both seeking to learn from our Father. We will learn the same concepts for truth is truth. Yet, gaining truth is a journey, as it can only build. So while he is teaching one soul one layer of truths based on where they are and what they can understand in their current maturity, he is teaching someone else even deeper truths because they already had building blocks 1, 2 and 3 that the other person is now only learning.
Truth always goes deeper and stacks upon itself, moving from the symbol and shadow to the actual and real. For clarity, imagine one is learning arithmetic and the other calculus. And the one learning arithmetic can’t understand the one speaking of calculus, and sometimes can label it as wrong, but it’s only a deeper layer of understanding, thus perception. This stacking nature of truth is why we’ve been given the beautiful necessity of customized instruction. It’s by this intimate teaching that our understanding is built into a solid foundation, which brings about a living faith, which brings about our new soul birth.
Thus our faith is like a light, but isn’t the light. Its purpose is to lead us to the light, a new soul birth. So, we don’t actually see for we are still in the darkness of the womb, but we are “seeing” by understanding the truths and love we are being taught. And because truth is truth, the more we learn the more in line our perspective becomes with what is real and everlasting. It becomes so real and deep, that we gain a living faith, a faith in which we act as if we are in the light.
Like a blind person we can learn how to function in this world/womb, and the more “learned” we are under our Father’s instruction, the more able we are to function in this blindness. The more we learn from the source of truth, the more we can “perceive” in more accuracy the world we cannot see.
Though our faith is built upon what is everlasting, we don’t actually have the experiences of everlasting life in fullness and realness, but in part with a hope for the fullness. Like growing embryos hoping to be born. But because this hope is based on what is real, it’s a hope that will be fulfilled. All other hopes built on the unreal will fall. But as we continue in this learning that develops our soul, we mature to a point in our soul development in which we are ready to be born.
Only our heavenly Father knows when our soul is developed and prepared to receive this union. For without our souls developed to be in harmony with his ways, truth, and love, it can’t take place. This development is the main purpose and work of Jesus Christ in our lives while in this womb. He teaches us to develop our faith to such an extent that we can be a conduit of this living light, thus a new soul, and come into the embrace of our Father.
The substance of living faith is in what is beyond this womb of darkness, the true and everlasting life in which we are connected “face to face” with our heavenly Father. His love surrounds us in this flesh veil, but there is a limitedness of which we can connect to him as a child is disconnected from their father while an embryo.
This is why our faith is sometimes difficult. Our faith is built on the realness that is not yet here, and what is here, in this womb, is an unreal state. So what’s here isn’t real, and yet his love also isn’t here in it’s fullness, we experience it in part and by faith. This duality creates some days in which we see through the darkness of aloneness, and other days we see through the light of our Father’s love. We vacillate in varying degrees and intensities until the substance of our faith fully manifests.
Keep seeking the light of divine truth and love, and you will experience the fulfillment of the Father’s love for you, for you will see him as if “face to face”.
