Teachings of the West 32: 1-11 – page 331
And another teaching has been spoken in that you must always hope and never fail in your dreams. There was a judge in the city whom did not fear anyone. A woman came to the judge and told the judge to cast judgment upon someone else. The judge would not do that but then she saw that he had no fear. He decided to avenge the honor of this woman because her continual presence was wearying him. Hear what the unjust judge says. Those who are righteous and are at the receiving end of wrong actions will receive the justice. They will be avenged, for they have faith in karma and the universe. When this is spoken, those who trust in these sayings will be righteous and those who are nervous will be despised. Everyone that humbles himself will be exalted because they realize that they have no power over another human. Even those who have done wrong in the past can receive deliverance and they can be healed through the power of forgiveness.
Treasures from the Word
- We are all examples of the divine plan in action.
- Those who take up that example and follow in the divine plan from birth to death are those that we should look up to.
- What can we learn about the qualities of the divine and what they want us to be?
- How important is the decision to come to the path to the light?
- What can we learn about the divine plan by learning more about this topic?
- What can we learn about the topic from the other readings for this week?
- We should look into our life and the reality that we need to be on the path to the light. We should not dwell in the darkness that the world provides in the spiritual sense of our understanding.
Living as Epochalists
- The first aspect of our understanding should be on the personal. We should be a part of the path to the light. However, we need to make a decision for us to be on that path. There are a lot of things in the world that will take us away from seeking after the things of the spiritual.
- When we are a good example of the light to the world, we should manifest this in a spiritual and physical way. We are tasked with being a good example to those around us and that means that we need to be sincere in all of the things that we do. That is our purpose and that is what we should run with.
