As R+C students and teachers, we use the term “God of my Heart, God of my Realization” so to attune, communicate, and merge with the Sacred Image of the One God closest to our personal understanding. The R+C theology acknowledges, but One God underlying this Universe, all Universes, though the form that an individual experiences such One God differs greatly between persons.
The R+C philosophy teaches that the form of God which a mystic experiences, is the personal appearance of the unknown, indescribable, infinite, endless, limitless Source. The Kabbalists call such Ein Sof, the vedic schools Brahman, and the R+C call it the Cosmic, the Absolute, the Unfathomable. The Veda schools call such God, Ishvara, Atman, Krishna, Shiva and so one.
But, few mystics or occultists are able to experience the formless Brahman, and so they discover Ishvara. The Christians call God Father, the Muslims Allah, the Zoroastrians Ahura Mazda, the ancient Egyptians Temu, and so one.
History shows us that the forms taken by Brahmin so to appear to people are endless. Moreover, theologies differ greatly over both time and space. But, a true adherent of the One God, or the Absolute Source, will not differentiate nor disapprove of theologies which are at odd with the cognitive understanding of his or her own theology.
Rather, he or she will look within to his or her heart and into the heart of an adherent of a different theology so to share a common love and understanding that all of us are children of the One God. There must be no argument, no war, no domineering, no attempts to convert by force. For the One Law says, “There is one law and that law is unconditional love for all creatures. Love under Wisdom.”
Each of us are stewards of this earth and its life forms. The One God owns everything, we own nothing. We are here to care for the world and all of its inhabitants for we are all of this world.
Such a simple idea. An idea taught by many, but heeded by few. For egoism and hoarding exist within all of us, causing war, starvation, and sickness. But, if we refuse to acknowledge our egoism and hoarding, we fail to do God’s Work, and cause even more suffering and violence.
A R+C works so to be in this world doing Good Works for everyone. He or she owns nothing and works to be the best steward possible. His or her job is to diminish world suffering because Love is the Law.
But, many are hypocrites espousing many theologies and mystery teachings. Do not be a hypocrite, for this path leads to death! Until you recognize you are a hypocrite by nature, you cannot change to be an agent of Deity.
Get off your butts and start the Work.
