Doesn’t matter how you spell it, you can’t do it in God’s Way of progressing.
[01:00:42.15] Mary: Isn’t it like in a lot of relationships – even father, daughter relationships; or partner relationships, we figure out how to maneauver around that person. ‘Aw, I’ll just tell dad this’, or ‘I’ll just stroke their ego this way, and then I’ll get what I want’. Yeah.
[01:00:58.23] A.J.: And many of us then come to think of God as the same thing; that we can maneauver around all God’s Laws. If my dad was a pretty hard guy and I could maneauver around him, then God’s a much easier guy, so I should be able to maneauver my way around him pretty easy. And it’s completely the opposite to that actually, God’s not a harsh person, but God has drawn the line in the sand; and that’s what law is; that’s what God’s Law is. And that’s what he’s basically saying here, we need to come to understand, actually, that there is the one way to get to God; and that’s the one law that God has stated is the only way to get to God; and there is no other way available to you; and you can try (laughs); you can try to get there without using the way, or the key that God has given you; and all you are is a thief and a robber, but you won’t be able to thieve or rob anything because even that’s not possible (laughs) on The Way.
So, I just feel if most people on earth understood that, then there would be far more less focus on their religious pursuits, and their individual scientific pursuits; and we’d start to see everything much more collectively, as there is this way – determined by nature, actually; and nature being of God’s creation means that it’s determined by God and God’s Laws as to how we need to grow. And if we refuse to grow in the way that God has designed, then we won’t grow; it’s as simple as that. We might have different experiences; we might move from side to side; it’s like, moving from one relationship to another relationship that’s identical is just a side-to-side shift. It’s not a real progression of the soul, nor is it a progression of your enjoyment or your happiness or any other state you might enjoy in your soul; and we need to start seeing it like that, as well. And we need to start seeing many of us are just going from experience to experience to experience; and really, repeating the same experiences over and over again, because we’re refusing true development of the soul. We’re refusing God’s Way.
