Meaning of Life.

And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

For many are called, but few are chosen. Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way. The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. And last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her. Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine. But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

Go within

The Internet is demonstrating to us the power of feeling "linked in" to a power greater than ourselves. We may become frustrated, to the point of panic, when viruses or other malfunctions destroy this connection. Imagine that all creatures are "linked in" to the Creator by unconditional love, and that this bond is broken by the despair of our doubts and fears. Can we measure the compassion generated by unconditional love? Can we measure the despair generated by fear? We call one "good" (or God, in the primitive origin of our religions), the other "evil" (or the Devil, in our religions). They are neither. They are natural phenomena. Energy has a purpose, to keep us going. Viruses have a purpose, at times, to protect us from becoming hyper-inflated with energy, perhaps. If left alone, we might be better off for a time.

Is the Creator a "real" entity, apart from ourselves, or something within that guides us throughout our lives, when we are not overly burdened with the viruses of doubt and fear? Perhaps the Creator is both. We can prove the existence of unconditional love by the way it affects our relationships with others. Can we tap into it at any time, for answers to questions, for understanding, for advice on any subject? It's like the Internet in that regard. If we seek these things, we will find them by going within, for that is where our link with the Creator dwells. It is a birthright of every living thing at the cellular level, in our genetic inheritance. Fear is also our birthright, evidenced in the startle reflex of infants, to alert us to the unexpected, which might turn out to be dangerous to our survival.

All of this natural, part of the plan of Creation. Should we condemn fear, therefore, and try to eliminate it? or work to understand it? and employ it in ways that will benefit us, rather than suffer with it when it appears to be in overabundant supply? Fear, and the negative feelings engendered by fear, are not the enemy. Those who do "criminal acts" because of fear are motivated by a survival instinct that has been overstimulated, through training or parenting or circumstances beyond their control.

Is behavior modification, or the punishments of incarceration, enough to establish the compassion that unconditional love provides? Probably not, for there is no outward method of forcing someone to go within, where their answers lie, hidden in the genetic inheritance that we all receive, activated at the moment of birth. Proof of the God that we are told does not really exist, except in our imaginations? I challenge everyone who reads this to go within for five minutes, at the start of every day. You will receive information and guidance that will amaze you.
