We are told our emotions are natural to us . Our first act when we are born is to cry and then our first impulse is for need in the form of sustenance from our mother .
Below are some of our ‘natural’ emotions :
I am sure there are others which I have forgotten . Actually, none of these emotions are natural to us . They do not come from our natural state of being but are created by our misguided view of reality .
All these emotions derive from our belief we are separated from God . My view of God is not of an old man with a beard but as Everything. It exists in the body, mind, grass, wind and rain and it is You/Me as well . There is nothing that is not God but we think, we are somehow divided from God .
Scholars of the monotheistic religions spend a lot of their time attempting to decide ‘God’s Laws’ . They give declarations what is right or wrong, from homosexuality to what you should eat and when you should eat it . To be honest, I would have thought looking at the horrors of human history it is obvious God has no opinions one way or other .
God actually has one Law but is not so much a commandment but what we are .
The Law is Love and is the only reality and emotion – it is ‘All There Is’ . Anything else is Illusion .
