1: The Ship Of Life
FROM the moment we first poked our inquisitive noses tentatively out the opening of our caves and gazed transfixed at the breathtaking vista that lay before us, the world that we were looking at was created by us, albeit, unconsciously.
Up until the present time we have been incapable of consciously creating our world with any degree of success. Therefore, ‘Universal Intelligence‘ (God?) has been at the helm of the ship of life, guiding us and keeping us on course.
We needed firstly to understand how to effectively and compassionately co-exist with ourselves and others from all species of life on earth before we could be trusted to take a turn at the helm and become competent, conscious creators.
Universal Intelligence purposely designed obstacles and hidden reefs that were then placed along our course to add challenges as we progressed. As we experienced and learned the lessons of life, we became more proficient, wiser and more capable of consciously steering our own course.
Just imagine for a moment what this world would be like if mankind was let loose with full conscious control today. What a right bloody mess we would make of it. It’s bad enough, the destruction and mayhem we are causing now, whilst our creating is still being done unconsciously.
Our selfishness, greed, anger and senseless killing would ensure that there would be no hope for our survival. We would cause our own extinction, taking with us, many of the other species if not the whole world with us.
We can easily understand the Creators reasoning for us to wake up first. That is the reason why we are not conscious creators – we are still like little children learning the ropes of life.
There is nothing wrong with all of this. It is all part of the blueprint of life. It is presented here to demonstrate the fact that what we take so seriously is really just a part of the learning process.
What we believe to be catastrophes of life, our true self knows as lessons in life.
The ship of life is causing a wake that draws us along. Even though we may stray off course somewhat, we are irresistibly drawn back towards the ship, eventually, as we learn to master life, we will be able to climb aboard and consciously assist in steering the ship.
As each one of us learns, the wake becomes stronger, drawing more people behind it and as more of us learn, more of our kind will awaken to the fact that there is no need to struggle against the current, but to simply trust and allow the forward momentum to carry them along to where they also can easily climb aboard.
At present we are asleep at the wheel and missing out on the wonders of creation, for the ship of life is sailing on regardless. For us to take a turn at the helm and thus take a conscious role in the joy of creation, all we need do is ‘Wake Up‘ and learn!
It is up to each one of us to allow the current to draw us forward, attracting others to follow us, (the one lighted candle effect) eventually bringing the whole of mankind aboard ship….
