Contemplating the oneness of Truth while guided by the Voice of Truth produces the evolution or maturation of the soul, spirit and mind, so reality can begin to reflect Truth's immutable, divine attributes, which manifest the highest good for all. This blog reflects an ever-deepening understanding of the Truth a soul gains as its mind is renewed by Truth's pure Light.

It seems a revolving theme we discuss here and are challenged with is one of perspective and how we are to treat others of different perspectives, in that we all can have a different understanding than others….
We often discuss our varying perspectives of a subject matter on this forum, what we believe and disbelieve. As many people, for example, read and comment on this forum, there are as many perspectives. Many of us question the views and perspectives of another and we use various ways in communicating our feelings and thoughts. When we share our thoughts, experiences, and perspectives with others we must ask ourselves what is the purpose and intent of doing so? This question can also be answered in as many ways as there are conditions of one’s maturity in the spirit. But…there is a common bond in all of our differences and as we ponder our common destiny, we ask what is our commonality?
When we speak, write, or address another is it in a spirit of love and welfare for that other or do we form a subjective self centered view of these other children of God according to what we subjectively see as the “written law.” Do we judge and criticize others for their differences in understanding and perspectives? If one’s belief is in the salvation of all in their called order how then can we go on condemning and criticizing them while they grow. Do we, overnight, wake up complete or do we grow toward our Father from where we are/were called? Whether we are called from one of the tens of thousands of religious orders or from the world at large, we start from where He “turns” us from the world.
Do we pray for them that they may be matured, little by little, as the scripture says of us all or do we criticism and condemn others in their spiritual infancy? We who criticize others in their spiritual infancy in effect and reality judge and criticize ourselves. We can only view others thorough the lens of our own development.
When the love of God is revealed in us for all, we pray for all, we do not try to figure out by another’s perspective whether they are good or evil, making ourselves the judge of another’s path and where they are in their journey. We hope, pray and have a faith for others also, that they too, as well as we, will come to the glorious truth of standing in His very likeness. Let us not hold ourselves back by judging another thinking because we know something, we are something. Self is a very deceptive personage of imitating God by judging from our self perspective.
What do we, and must we have in common for there to be unity taking into consideration our varying perspectives and views?
It is : “The intent of seeking righteousness” that should be common in us all, for though we have various views and perspectives on things, it is our intent of what and “Who” we seek that makes the difference and explains the content of our heart and being. Our beliefs at the moment are as different and varied as those who read these lines but for there to be harmony in our mutual love for the other, there must be a greater bond than “our” own perspective.
God’s Love, as ours should be…knows no bounds and looks far past our individual faults and criticisms we inherited at birth. We were condemned at birth to vanity so we should spend the remainder of our life’s journey being reconciled and when mature reconciling all to the Father. We must have a goal of completion and we will only achieve this desire when we look out over God’s creation and we see as He sees, forgive as He forgives, and….love as He loves.
This is a progression that spiritual infancy does not see for we all as spiritual children say things from an untrained and unloving point of view and perspective. As we grow, let us let others grow, praying for them, wishing the best for them. We may have the best of intentions for saying the things we do but we must question, are we judging or encouraging others. We must ask ourselves and look deep within, what is our “intent” in what we say and or do? Do we have an “intent toward righteousness” or do we angrily accuse another for being different….whether they are right or wrong?
Love is the ways of the Father and His way is forgiving seven times seventy or in other words without beginning or end.
Nothing must stand in our way in seeing love completed in all….as the Father says, “As in Adam all die so as in Christ all will be made alive,
but each man in His own order…..” Let us not be the one who hinders another’s order and calling.
A personal note. I found my way to this forum quiet by “accident” on my part. As I left this blog I had no intention of ever returning as I have read many articles on the web with “no comment”. I read a couple of articles Rachel wrote and although I did and do not see the same in perspective as Rachel on some subjects, I noticed a deeper “intent to seek righteousness” that is beyond knowledge and perspective, a desire to “know Him” from where she was. I do not seek praise from her or any other, nor do I want to be liked “or disliked” for that matter for what I have to say, for my views are the perspectives I am “allowed” to have by God, our Father at this time and juncture in my life. What is nice about this forum (blog) is that it is provided by one who seeks “Him” from where she is. Rachel allows others as we should to be who they are from where they are. This is a maturity that goes beyond what we know or that we think we know. What is significant about this, is that Rachel wants others to have this same freedom to express themselves as she does with no condemnation, ridicule or judgment on the part of any other by any other. This being a public forum, ones come from all walks of life and religions and “perspectives” in various maturity levels, from babes to adults, spiritually speaking.
So we all should follow this example of the “intent to know righteousness” from wherever we are in our maturity level or where we see another from our personal perspective. If all of the religions in the world would put aside their doctrinal differences and simply followed the two great commandments, having compassion toward others for “believing” different doctrines “Truth” would prevail for truth is in being found in His likeness and not believing about facts of law. To be something far exceeds knowing “about” something.
Life is like a great mountain we all see in the distance, some of us see it from our desert home, some from the water, and some from the green pastures. Some see from other “high places” in the surrounding countryside, from our varying perspectives we see the same mountain, a spiritual mountain called Zion. This is the place we all desire to be, elevated beyond this earthy realm above all that is below.
When our love is as great for one that agrees with all we say, as it is for those who do not, we have climbed this mountain called Zion spiritually where we see all in there various places of perspective. We climb this mountain from where we are, not where we another is. We flourish and grow as we encourage others to flourish and grow Whether they be in the desert, in green pastures or another place allegorically speaking. Let us all encourage the other from “where they are.” This is not judgement, this is compassion.

Some thoughts in reflection of yours … and as always thank you for sharing what you have learned.
Like light that makes a seed to grow, it is a sincere and pure love without contrary or hypocritical motives that causes our soul to grow and produce truly desirable outcomes. This is why our Father’s love is so powerful in our lives .. there is nothing more pure as it reflects perfect truth held in the realms of eternity. In its rays all is eventually exposed in us and we are humbled and thankful for all it reveals in us that was contrary, for what is contrary keeps us in undesirable places within and without.
As we come into divine love’s light, we see that all truth is defined by its magnificence. And we realize the “wisdom” or “knowledge” that we held prior to love’s radiance were beliefs of a finite and darkened mind. Though limited, they serve(d) as stepping stones .. for everything is purposeful.
We only give when we love, and without it we are only a clanging cymbal. But even if we are a clanging cymbal, may we continue to seek for pure truth from the spirit of truth … for if we seek to learn from this spirit we will find and one treasure among many that we find is the supremacy of love of which all truth serves.

Yes, I agree, we must learn harmony as you often say, be the harmony we seek.
As natural babies grow to where they start to speak, and as they grow into young children, they are more often than not, “clanging symbols”, wanting to be heard before being properly matured, and not yet speaking clearly as the parent (God) has taught. Yes, as you infer, clanging symbols start out clanging in their own timing but as we grow we quit clanging and find our place in the great symphony of God…..and then we learn…..to harmonize with all the other instruments (people) of God. As we have all clanged at one time or another, when we learn harmony, we give forth a new sound….in Him. We have patience….for the “clanging” to be changed…..into….

Beautiful. I’ve often prayed that my life would be as a beautiful melody. I’ve learned divine love is the great harmonizer within us and among us. How much we need our Father’s love to govern every breath, for without him the expressions of this love remains an unplayed song.

2 And as soon as He got out of the boat, there met Him out of the tombs a man [under the power] of an unclean spirit.
3 This man continually lived among the tombs, and no one could subdue him any more, even with a chain;
4 For he had been bound often with shackles for the feet and handcuffs, but the handcuffs of [light] chains he wrenched apart, and the shackles he rubbed and ground together and broke in pieces; and no one had strength enough to restrain or tame him.
5 Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always [shrieking and screaming and ]beating and bruising and cutting himself with stones.
6 And when from a distance he saw Jesus, he ran and fell on his knees before Him in homage,
7 And crying out with a loud voice, he said, What have You to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? [What is there in common between us? I solemnly implore you by God, do not begin to torment me!
8 For Jesus was commanding, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!
9 And He asked him, What is your name? He replied, My name is Legion, for we are many.
10 And he kept begging Him urgently not to send them [himself and the other demons] away out of that region.
11 Now a great herd of hogs was grazing there on the hillside.
12 And the demons begged Him, saying, Send us to the hogs, that we may go into them!
13 So He gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out [of the man] and entered into the hogs; and the herd, numbering about 2,000, rushed headlong down the steep slope into the sea and were drowned in the sea.
14 The hog feeders ran away, and told [it] in the town and in the country. And [the people] came to see what it was that had taken place.
15 And they came to Jesus and looked intently and searchingly at the man who had been a demoniac, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, [the same man] who had had the legion [of demons]; and they were seized with alarm and struck with fear.
16 And those who had seen it related in full what had happened to the man possessed by demons and to the hogs.
17 And they began to beg [Jesus] to leave their neighborhood.
