Shall it be atheism or communion with God? … Also, parliamentary process as compared to honing of alternatives in lively, but detached debate. A Summary follows the video; text not in the video is in green font …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.
Well, so, this morning, on the astral internet, there was a theological discussion, and it was so cool! Theological discussion is one of my favorite things, because it goes straight to the source of reality … of who we are and what our purpose is in life.
And it answers the big questions, you know? The huge questions. So, I recently came upon a group of people who are very learned in their way of discussing it. And I’d say the way that they do it is better, even, than what they call the parliamentary process, where everyone has a chance to state their point of view. And everyone votes on that. And then that becomes the way that things are for people.
The way that they do it is highly respectful, and very insightful … very learned. Very cool. A very cool what might be called ‘Soul resonance’ when they discuss. I have a feeling that they way that they do that … is it called ‘elocution’? … that way of talking, is going to be close to the way that we people of New Earth relate to each other in harmony, and make decisions about what vision we want for Earth, and for the children of Earth, and for the future of Earth, and so forth.
Setting all that aside, let me get down to the point that was made this morning. I had made a point … I remember the exact day. It was maybe 20 years ago … My good friend at the time, he had a friend who was an atheist … an absolute atheist. And I was experiencing ecstatic states of union with God. And so, my point of view was completely different from this person’s point of view.
And so, we were all sitting down for lunch, right? And so, the topic came up: Is there a God? This person’s name was Charlie. He and I were talking it over. And he said:
Prove to me that there is a God!
You can’t say that there is a God … There is no proof; it was like that. So I just waited for an answer, for a minute.
And the thing that came out … you’ve heard of this … was this …
When a fish is swimming in the water, it doesn’t know that there’s water there. That’s just its home … Its home is the water.
And in the same way: Here we are in physical form, swimming in God. And we just don’t know it, because God is all around us. Everything that we see, is God. And we are part of God.
And I remember, Charlie got really aggravated over that, because it’s the kind of response where the logical mind can’t step in, you know? He’s still kind of mulling it over in the back of his mind right now, 20 years later, I suspect … I’m sorry, Charlie, I didn’t mean to upset you!
So anyway, this morning that topic came up again. And I started out with the argument I had offered Charlie. And another person on the astral plane added a refinement; they honed the talk.
I don’t know the exact words to use, but you start with a proposition, and you either prove it or disprove it. And along the way, as you’re coming up with what’s more true, you hone the details of the truth. Ok?
So, on the astral plane, what this other person said … which I thought was very wise, was this …
In the same way that a fish doesn’t know that it’s in the water, unless there’s a little ripple in the water that it can sense, we humans don’t know that we’re within God, unless God sends us a ripple of grace, through the Holy Spirit.
That’s pretty cool, huh? So, we feel the grace, just like, back at the time when Charlie and I conversed, I was feeling this wonderful presence of God, through the incoming grace … the Divine grace of the Holy Spirit. And that’s how I knew! That’s how I knew what to say to Charlie. And that’s how I knew that there was a God.
And so, I’m very grateful for this astral talk this morning, that clued me in to quite a bit. I hope there are many such discussions in the future …
Not only about whether or not God exists, and whether or not we’re feeling the influx of grace into our hearts and into our reality … into our families, and into our communities, and into our nations, and all over Earth. Whether we’re feeling Christ’s love coming in, and touching us, and lighting our lives.
But also, the nuts and bolts: What are we going to do? What are we going to do about better education for children? What are we going to do about wise leadership for the world? What are we going to do about careful husbanding of the resources of this planet? And so forth …
All those questions can be dealt with in the same way: With that kind of Soul resonance, that kind of wisdom. Seeking the truth; seeking the real nature of things; finding out the true solution to things. Rather than standing within ourselves and saying: This is the way it has to be! [laughs]
Because where we are … in the Now … the way it has to be, changes on a dime. Changes in a second flat. And we, ourselves, have to be poised … like a skater on an ice rink … Ready to change. Ready to whirl around. Ready to stop on a dime. You know what I mean?
It’s really exhilarating. I’m very glad to be alive now. And I’m very glad that you’re sharing this journey with me.
Talk to you later!
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
