you are God’s gift to humanity

While I’m doing these review days I’ll use the time to just write ideas that come to mind thanks to doing A Course in Miracles workbook.

Typically when people say that someone thinks that he’s God’s gift to humanity they are denigrating the person, however in reality every person who is born is God’s gift to humanity. If only we realized how precious people are the world would be so much more wonderful.

If only we realized that even the most sinful person deserves to go to heaven…

At this time two explanations are needed:

  1. The Greek word in the New Testament which is translated as the English word sin was a word used in archery and meant missing the mark.
    Note: Jesus did not speak Greek but spoke Aramaic so we have no way of knowing his exact words but only what was written about him between twenty years after his death by a person who had never met Jesus and by his own admission persecuted the followers of Jesus (Saint Paul) to about eighty years later (The Gospel of John) by someone who had never met anyone who personally knew Jesus.
    Anyway, since we don’t know what Jesus said but we do have the Greek New Testament I use the term sin as missing the mark.
  2. In reality we never left heaven and all we have to do to have the awareness that we are in heaven and we are in heaven.
    As is written in the New Testament: “The kingdom of heaven is within.”
    Also note that in Genesis chapter two God puts Adam (prototypical human being before the fall = separation) into a deep sleep. But no where is it mentioned that Adam was awaken.
    All we have to do is to wake up and note that we are still in the garden and time and space do not exist from the point of view of Ultimate reality.

If only we realized that even the most sinful person deserves to go to heaven we would wake up from that deep slumber and the world would be heaven. Then we would realize that each person that we meet is truly God’s gift to humanity.

That is one of the reasons I love the Hindu greeting of Namaste which means that part deep in me which is the Divinity greets that part deep within you which is Divinity or to put it in a mystical Christian way: “The Christ in me salutes the Christ in you.”
