Truth Has No Relationship To Numbers

54 – Truth Has No Relationship To Numbers

There is a prevalent belief within society, which has people convinced that the more people who believe in an idea, the more likely it is that the idea will be true. There is some merit in thinking this way, but not very much. Essentially social consciousness is aligning itself with the idea that a million, or five hundred million, or even a billion people who all hold to the same idea, can’t be wrong. What is happening is that they are confusing the belief that there is “strength in numbers,” with the idea of infallibility, based on those numbers. At one time almost the whole world believed the world was flat, today people believe the exact opposite. Obviously then, the amount of people who held to the idea of a flat Earth, had no bearing on the truth of the matter. Where people today fall down is in their forgetfulness of what the past has already taught us. Today almost the whole world believes that competition is the preferred method of doing business. Regardless of the number of people who believe this to be true, they are wrong! Cooperative business practices are the only way that everyone can benefit equally, long-term. The lesson for us all to learn is that, the number of people who believe an idea, does not ensure its accuracy, correctness, or alignment to universe reality. Everyone who uses a compass that is off by ten degrees, will experience the same degree of inaccuracy, just as they will when they use an “idea” that is not one hundred percent accurate. Additionally, one person of high knowledge such as Jesus, could be correct, regardless of what the world thinks to the contrary.
The important points to remember in this chapter are that, millions of people have been wrong in the past with regards to an idea, and this trend will continue. Better to be a party of one who has it right, then one of the misguided crowd.

We Are All Special People

51 – We Are All Special People

Within each of our lives there are number of people whom we view as being special to us. We love these people, and they occupy a special place in our hearts, so it doesn’t seem unusual that we should have a tendency to lavish our affections on them. This is how our ego sees life, because it has been educated by the ideas and concepts that are valued within social consciousness. The reality though, is that the concept of specialness is a judgment made by comparing one person who we hold to be special, against the general public, who are found to be wanting in some regard, otherwise they too would be special. In most cases, we elevate the feelings we have for one person, above those we have for others, and in so doing, we also distance ourselves energetically from other people. Judgments we make about people always find them wanting in some manner, because judgment, just like the idea of competition, works to separate and strengthen the idea of differences, rather than focusing on similarities and unification. The truth is that all souls are spiritual in their source of origin, and are simply inhabiting a physical body during this incarnation. The belief that all souls were created all the same time, by the same source, for the same reason, would indicate that none are more special than any other. Or another way to look at this idea would be that, if the soul “could” be special, then all souls must be special, and equal in every respect.
The important points to remember in this chapter are that, specialness is an idea held within social consciousness, which like so many other ideas people share, is emotional in nature. The energetically higher one ascends within creation, the more love works to unify all things, simply because you are headed back to the single source of all life, which is God.
