We addressed temporal reality…the table is a real table in this moment. With a few swings of an axe it becomes real kindling. Toss a match on it and it becomes real ash. So reality that is subject to change with changes in circumstances over time.
Then there is subjective reality. A great example of this was when I was trying to explain to my Christian friend how I have trouble communicating with my higher knowing (consciousness). I said that it is like I live in Canada and I have this really smart twin living in Belarus…I send messages to her and she gets them easily but when she sends messages to me they are lost in the mail. Thankfully that situation is slowly improving. My friend said at least Belarus is real. I don’t
know anyone who has visited Belarus but as a member of a spiritual church I know more people who have visited other dimensions. We can also have collective subjective reality; that which groups or even entire cultures accept as real. Still it is their reality even if it does not resonate as real for others.
The one thing we could come up with that exists universally regardless or time or perspective is LOVE. To paraphrase Judge Scalia, “I can’t describe it but I know it when I feel it.” There is no mistaking it, whether you are giving, receiving or just witnessing LOVE in action you can feel it vibrating through you. So the highest, most immutable thing in existence is LOVE.
I added, what I have said many time on the website that, “God (however you perceive it) IS love”. When I got home I asked myself (and now I ask you) what if we switch that around? What if we assert that, “LOVE is god”? Would we be better people if we worshipped LOVE, were ruled by LOVE, and trusted in LOVE?
As spiritualist we appreciate that it is not our place to define another
person’s reality. Whatever brings them peace and joy and allows them to be the best person they came possibly be, is good for all of us. That “love is god” may be up for debate… but I don’t think anyone can deny that LOVE is good.
Have a joyous day
