Experience: Negative to Positive

“Don’t touch! It’s hot!”

As a species, we are wired to disobey. It must built into our DNA to be negatively suggestible. From the minute we are told not to do something, that’s all we want to do.

Once upon a time, every home had a black monster (see above) sitting in its kitchen. One of the first things we were told as children was to stay away from it. “Why?” we would ask. Because it could hurt us, we were told. “What’s ‘hurt’?” we would then ask. “You’ll see…”

We never take the word of anyone else to be valid until we prove it to ourselves. That’s how we learn what’s good for us and what’s not.

The Ten Commandments

Have you ever really considered why God gave Moses the tablets of stone on Mt. Sinai? Was it to warn the Israelists about ‘nasty’ stuff? Or did the Godhead know that by prohibiting certain behaviour, the Israelists would do exactly what they were told not to do and then learn valuable lessons?

Wisdom comes from experience. Innocence means that you’ve never tried anything, and therefore have no awareness of consequences to your actions. God isn’t looking for blind faith, He/She/It is looking for mature partners in the material world. Then an intimate relationship becomes possible.

Nowhere to Now Here

In the Fleetwood Mac album Time, there is a Peter Green inspired song called “These Strange Times”. Here are the lyrics:

These strange times I think of a friend
They said was a man of the world
When all the time he was in a fight
Between the dark and the light
Yes I too, my friend, find the Devil
Trying to make me do things I don’t want to do
Now I find myself crying out
God is nowhere, God is nowhere
These strange times I look in my heart
And see the dark not the light
And how I’m sad and wished I was in love
And look to the sky and cry out
God is nowhere, God is nowhere
And this is Hell
Being caught between the dark and the light
Daddy, daddy, hold on
God is now here, God is now here
These strange times I too have dreams
Things that make me wonder
If to walk a thin line is like dying alone
And I’m trying to find my way home
To where God is now, here and the dark is now light
Yes
 
 What a great way to end the song!

    My grandmother had a black monster like that in her kitchen. She practically lived in that room making bread sticks and pizza, etc.

    BTW, nice post.

    The need to find out for ourselves obviously started in the Garden of Eden: Adam and Eve were told not to eat the fruit of two trees. One was the Knowledge of Good and Evil, the other, Life. Which one were they prompted to eat? Knowledge. The consequence? Death.
