“An apparent death which led to eternal life happened long ago. It happened when time was conceived, although only two thousand calendar years ago, was it seen by human consciousness.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 7:III
This assertion is being channeled by Jesus, who lived that two thousand calendar years ago and was the central figure in the drama that still captivates the world today. There is a plan, and here we learn that the genesis of that plan occurred before time entered our universe. It is possible that we don’t understand this, for many are the mysteries that surround the origin of the universe. But Jesus also lives now outside of time, and we can respect his assertions as being true.
There is a plan for our lives, too. We are not blindly following things in our lives that on the surface don’t make sense. The plan culminates, eventually, when we are old, with the blessings that Joseph Campbell said were “very sweet.” It is only as time passes that we are given the wherewithal to see the “why” of our lives. And only when we have passed the test of true love.
God couldn’t let His universe exist as a place a place in which love was ambivalent. Certainly the universe would have self-destructed. Resting on love, all things eventually work out a plan that blesses us. Love draws us, for our joy is so complete when we open to love that we want nothing else.
This is the plan that Jesus’ life embodied. And it is fascinating that the plan evolved before time made its appearance.
There are more things in Heaven and on Earth than we have dreamed of. Let us thank God that His plans always work out perfectly, even though with free will we might avoid love for a time.
