[Iblees] said, “By your might, I will surely mislead them all
Except, among them, Your chosen servants.”
[ Allah ] said, “The truth [is My oath], and the truth I say –
[That] I will surely fill Hell with you and those of them that follow you all together.”
This is a dialogue that took place between God, the universal consciousness that created us, and the force of opposition- Iblis/Lucifer. He was once a servant of God that became a “satan”, the symbol of evil. Because our minds work in relativity of discovering what is good, by knowing evil on earth, satan needed to exist. This force is not as strong as the force of Love and Creation that comes from God, but it is intertwined within the realities of these things.
We can choose to follow this path of untruth and evil, or we can become seekers in our life of a higher vibration that allows our life to live in flow with God’s Will. How does this relate to today?
Well, when we hear the news that seeks to alienate a group of people, start race wars, question our differences, we can choose to look beyond the news as truth. We can instead choose to see the news as a mirror to show the truth of the world right now and where we are consciously. I see the news on war and terror as glimpses into the lower consciousness realms of fear, anger, separation, greed, power, and control. I no longer look at it as being a reflection of the truth of human nature. We are more than this.
What people are going to have to start asking themselves is are they happy like this? Are you happy being so hateful towards Mexican immigrants? Are you happy being so fearful of American Muslims in your neighborhood? Are you happy as a person and at peace thinking African Americans or homosexuals threaten YOUR lively hood? Are you satisfied with your being to hate all Jews?
What makes you most happy? Is it to see your fellow beings smiling in joy? Is it to see two people of different cultures and colors hugging? Is it to see a hungry person get fed and have a bed to sleep in at night? Is it to see the goodness in God every day in life? Is it to see two nations getting along without war, bloodshed and death?
Lots of people act tough on the internet commenting about whole groups of people as if they had the life experience to know them all. They throw hate terms and slangs around and it has has gotten to a point where there is so much that when you report it, nothing happens. Probably these days there are too many reported posts and comments that insult, threaten, and spread hate towards a specific group of people. I can’t believe there are actual “jobs” that these people have to be paid to do this.
I advocate for you to decide how do you want use the “force”. Star Wars was the most popular movie and fastest one to hit 1 billion dollars in a few weeks. It is because people like to see the light and dark fight it out. And in the Star Wars series we learn that darkness is never as strong as the light. People love this truth expressed visually for them to see. So ask yourself, what side do you personally want to be on.
If you are happy following the dark side of human nature and Iblis/Satan into the realm of anger, hate, fear, and isolation-then let that be your path. I can not stop you and it’s your choice. Some people really like darkness. But if you are someone who is reaching for a reason to live and to believe in the goodness of mankind, and God, then choose the light side. It is the side that gives you a purpose and something to look forward to when each battle is won in the world every time a good deed is recognized. Cause no matter how evil or dark, the dark side may seem, it is never as strong as the light.
The light side IS Creation. The darkside can only destroy but never create life. So the dark only exists as a “byproduct” of the light. The truth is the light can exist on its own and it does in the God form, but darkness never can exist on its own. Even Satan was created as a being with free will choice that rebelled against God, but even he/it knows eventually it will be called back to God as all things in the End of this creation when a new one will begin again.
So do you want to stand on your own as a soul connected to the ALL, or just be an antagonist of goodness? It’s your choice.
Don’t take the easy way out. Educate yourself on the truth of the world. Go out and meet people different from you that the news talks about. Try to find the source for your anger or hurt, and don’t let it control your destination. Reach for something more that YOU deserve. You deserve to be happy and exist in a blissful state here and in death.
