Rev Richard Posted March 21, 2021 Report Share Posted March 21, 2021 There is an old saying, "Life is a learning curve". That is definitely true, and since first being ordained into the ULC I have had many highs and lows, particularly over the past couple of years when I had a successful political election victory, shortly followed by serious illness and divorce. In such times you take a look at yourself and find inner strength. You also take time to examine and think. During this time I looked at the Book of Genesis, particularly the early passages in which to find what some would call the meaning of life. I'm one that believes the Bible, and indeed other books of faith are simply stories based on individuals interpretations. You have to read between the lines and interpret them yourself. This is how after a lot of reading and a lot of notes came across a line of thought, or if you prefer a line of belief, I term as 'Cosmic Spirituality'. So had did I come about this? Let's go back to those early passages of creation in Genesis. I believe this does not point to the creation of humanity in physical form but spiritual form. As cosmic forces created us we were supposed to be Spiritual creations. It was only when our original Spiritual creations, our prototypes if you like, failed, we became in physical form and part of an evolutionary process. But within our physical shell remains our spiritual form which is released when we have gone through life and experienced enough to become our intended Spiritual beings. Going back to Genesis and if we view our origins as the Spiritual forms we were supposed to live our lives with free love and compassion and in peace. Can you imagine if we all were to live our lives as close to those as our Spiritual forms were intended? Barriers between us would be broken. There would be no fear or inhibitions. Poverty would be eradicated. There would be peace. Things such as Astral Projection point to what we really are within and what we were truly intended to be as opposed to our physical shells. So how does this belief of 'Cosmic Spirituality' fit in with the ULC? Well I believe the ULC not only encompasses those of all dominations and those of no faith, but also develops and encourages new strains of thought. I am hoping to develop thoughts on 'Cosmic Spirituality' and post these for those that are interested. But in the meantime I just thought I'd share this with you. Quote Link to comment
