YOU as Creator of Your Life ... An introduction to a little bit of John's philosophy ...
This is a sermon given at the Mystical United Spiritualist Church in Anaheim California during March 2010, by Rev. John M. Kohlenberger, HHP. (pictured above)
Today, I speak as a Spiritualist that sees value in both religion and science, as a mystic, metaphysician, engineer, Healer and Artist.
Of late, I have come to the conclusion that this thing, process, energy, force, being, that we call God-Goddess or Creator loves to create - with a passion!
Scientists, that look through a strictly physical perception of the universe as physical, call this (process?) the Big Bang or Expanding Universe. To me, this shows us Expanding Awareness.
Our 5 senses have come out of the expansion of our Inner Senses that some have called "The Fruits of the Spirit", which we experienced in our awarenesses of:
- Understanding & Wisdom
- and beyond ... "In my Father's house are many mansions"
"Inspiration" or being "in the spirit" of ... or becoming aware of something beyond the 5 senses is how most of us perceive these gifts of the spirit, which are given to every one, in larger or smaller portions.
When I was 8 years old, my father took the family to Grand Canyon, Arizona. I remember him pointing out into the canyon and saying "Look at all that color"... and all I saw was "dirt"!
Later, when I was in my early 20s, I took my young family to Grand Canyon, (in my 4 speed, fuel injected, 55 Chevy Nomad) along the old Route 66. When we finally arrived, I stopped the car and got out to look at the view. And, I saw the colors that my father had remarked about!
This story illustrates how our perception changes as we gain experience, and thus see life differently!
Thus, awareness has no limits, just as an infinite God has no limits, BUT to our limited senses, the universe seems to be infinitely creating and expanding in all directions, at an infinite range of speeds and vibrational frequencies; all at once. (And, I believe, some energies and/or particles exceed the speed of light, which puts them beyond our physical perception.)
Creation is a single on-going moment.
So, what is Infinite Immortality or "Everlasting Life"? ... Life creates death and death creates the conditions that create new life, again and again, forever. Spiritualists, both here and in England, as well as most people throughout the Orient know that life takes on many forms as it goes beyond the physical boundaries that we believe we are limited to. Why or How? Creator loves creation so much that He/She/It constantly create and re-create. Moreover He/She and It has created co-creators, like you and me, to help create even more and better possibilities in new awareness. This is where humanity, even YOU, fit in to the Divine Creative Plans of All That Is. And so you see varieties of humanity upon the earth creating an infinite range of situations, events, things and experiences, all based of the creative energies of love.
Thus I believe that:
"God so loves the world that He gave us each other, to love and be loved by."
So, the bottom line is that all may seek and find an intimate friend with whom to bare their heart, soul and body to, as Adam and Eve did once upon a time. Thus, we have the expression, "Love your neighbor", where ever you are. None of this could be a sin!
Now do we create our own lives? Made in the image of Creator, how could we not?
How do we do this? Simply by our perceptions and choices. Change your perceptions and you'll change your life. Or, change your choices and you'll change your life. Do both and you just may do miraclles!
This is evidence enough, for me, that: "GOD IS Alive and hiding in Eachoneofus". Thus, we are Creators, even of our own lives!
As Donald Neale Walsch has so well said, "You are the Gods you've been waiting for".
