The amount of material concerning your True Self, God, Consciousness, Awareness, Ascension, etc is staggering. Everyone with an interest in the subject has an opinion as to the true path to Enlightenment. However, many of these “paths” are little more than rabbit paths that lead only to a thicket created by the ego. With that said, there are an infinite number of paths to Knowing just as there are an infinite number of paths available to each of us in this lifetime. Which path do you pick? Actually, your focus is more important than the path.
But focus on what? The options before us are like stars in the night sky. How do you know which path is genuine? Absolute Truths will point the way.
Most truths are tools of our own creativity to help us conceptualize and understand the path before us. Those truths can change as we gain more understanding and begin to remember our True Self. These small “t” truths are vital to our progress but will be abandoned as we move down the path in much the same way that a child abandons preconceived notions when they are no longer useful.
However, there are 3 absolute Truths that are needed to test any path before you. These 3 Truths can be stated in multiple ways, but they do not vary. These Truths are constant in every authentic teaching I have ever witnessed. If a path does not have at its root the ability to incorporate these 3 Truths, look elsewhere for your path forward.
This is so important that I suggest to you that it is the one and only steadfast, unbreakable rule.
The One and Only Unbreakable Rule of the spiritual seeker:
Never explore any path of spiritual enlightenment that does not incorporate these 3 Absolute Truths at its core:
- You are a Holy Child of the All
- You are without sin
- The All is not complete without you
That’s it. Substitute the Creator, God, the One, the I Am or any other name that makes you feel comfortable for the All, it doesn’t matter. What matters is the concept of an ultimate presence that is the genesis of all that is. Call it anything you like. Personally, I prefer God, but I understand the baggage that comes with that name, so for today I will use the All. Names are not Absolute Truths, names are simply our attempt to vocalize concepts given to us by our True Self as translated into imagery by our minds. Little wonder we have a hard time understanding each other!
Now, back to the Absolute Truths.
Yes, you are indeed a Holy Child of the All. The Creator is within you and you are within the Creator. You cannot be separated any more than the DNA of a child can be separated from the DNA of the parents. The All is within you and cannot be separated.
Sin. It is such a big word, yet it is without substance. The original meaning of sin was simply that an archer missed the bullseye. Nothing more. No reason to beg forgiveness, simply try again. Did that sink in?? Simply get up and try again. The concept of mortal sin does not exist with the All. Any teachings of mortal sin and eternal damnation have no place in higher realms of spirit. Sin is a man-made concept designed to control and deceive.
The last Absolute Truth consumes the first two. The All, The Creator, Source, God is not complete without you. Do you realize how BIG that is? That which you came from cannot be complete without you. You will not, cannot be left behind. No matter what you may do, what you may think, how you may act, you will not be abandoned. It is the very definition of who you are that the All will account for you and ensure that you are not lost, no matter what.
Walk the path that calls you, knowing you carry with you these Absolute Truths.
