God created the universe, light and dark
God created the universe, hot and cold
God created the universe, near and far
God created the universe, right and left
God created the universe, seen and unseen
God created the universe, you and me
God created a balanced foundation
But it is we that create a foundation of balance
God created freewill
But it is we that create the will to be free
Darkness creates an appreciation of the day
And the long days help us to appreciate the night
Challenges help us to appreciate the bliss
And it is the bliss that creates the need to be challenged
To learn the secrets of the light and the dark
Is to learn the secrets within ourselves and the universe
God = The Universal God (not tied to any single religion), The Creator, The Great Spirit, The Universal Consciousness, Source, etc
God Is That Which Binds Everything Together
God, the Creator, is a loving being. The true Creator does need to be worshiped. Whether (or not) we choose to be thankful for the blessings in our life is entirely up to us. The true Creator is not a vengeful god, a jealous god, a vindictive god, an egotistical god or a murderous god. The true Creator does not demand nor need human or animal sacrifice. These are the traits of the gods.
The gods have genetically modified the Human race. And the gods have socially and psychologically programmed us. They have changed us and they have manipulated us. In some ways, you might say that they have even created us. But even through all of this manipulation, the true human spirit has never been lost. It has remained strong within many of our hearts. It has prevailed once before, and it will prevail once again.
The Creator does not punish the sons and daughters (no matter who, what or where they may be). The Creator also does not directly interfere with our evolution (but is always willing to help guide those who sincerely seek guidance). We are all here (and there) to experience, to learn and to grow. God (the Creator) is within all of us and works through all of us. We are all unique parts of the whole.
Balance within the greater Universe(s) is always maintained. However, that does not mean that balance is always maintained on the micro level. In nature, things are always changing and evolving. For example, a planet of light can turn into a planet of darkness, while somewhere else, a planet of darkness turns into a planet of light. A universe of light may exist along side of a universe of darkness. And a human of darkness may exist along side a human of light (the examples listed above are not intended to be literal translations, just simple generalizations). The scales tip to wherever our energy and focus flows or (equally important) from wherever our energy and focus is lacking.
The human race has been advised by many. The path that we choose is up to us. If the same message is given many times over many decades (even many centuries) but we still choose not to hear it, then what occurs after that is not the result of a punishing God, but that of a willfully ignorant child. I know that probably sounds harsh, but the situation that we are facing is very serious and therefore it deserves serious attention.
People often joke, mock and ridicule serious situations (and the people who try to communicate/expose such things). This type of reaction is fairly widespread today and seen in various places such as internet forums, the comment sections of news stories, the mainstream media and throughout society in general. There are even some people that crave doom...almost appearing to feed off of it. However, how many of these jokers and doomers have actually gone without food for even a couple of days? Without access to clean water? Without heat or air conditioning? Without money? Gasoline? Transportation? Electricity? How many have been in a riot situation? A war situation? How many have seen (recognized) all of their freedoms stripped away from them? This is not a funny situation or one that should be wished for. The time to act is not after we have had all of these things stripped away us...it is before.
What if someone informs us that it is 30 degrees below zero outside and we go outdoors in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt and subsequently freeze to death. Is that the result of an evil vengeful God? A vindictive winter? Or is the responsibility of that fate entirely our own? People like to blame others for their misfortunes. In the short-term, sometimes others are to blame. However, in the long-term, it is we, individually, who create and choose our own reality and our own destiny.
