If we want to know God, we must understand what in us, is constant.
Today, we learned of the Presidents evolution, regarding his stance on gay marriage. Change, is both a motivator, as well as a results. Lifes journey, is all about change. Some beliefs demand our evolution. That in itself says, that evolution, re-birth, and in a way, reincarnation, is a part of each mans life. Reincarnation is a belief that the soul comes back. That is the understanding of man, who lives within change. The Soul, in truth, is the constant. It's mans consciousness that moves either as a part of ones culture, or as an individual who becomes aware of his soul. One moves with the herd, the other, by choice, based upon his need to grow greater in understanding and in love. These changes usually are value changes. What the culture and the individual saw value in 10 years ago, may not be seen as a value today.Hence, man changes, the seasons change, OUR SOUL-THE CHRIST-OUR GOD...doesnt!
So if values are of mans choosing, just as gold in bad times, becomes more valuable than the dollar, so too, are the beliefs of men, open to change based upon the needs of the time. Values then, are a matter of time. They are a matter of conscious. It takes awareness to choose. Some make the choice, some share their choice, some just go along by allowing others to think for them..that is the consciousness of man.
So if mans journey is one of evolution, God has to be the constant in man. We can say nature is change, because we see the seasons and the weather, all a part of the earths changes. We then say nature is change. But what of God? Everything in nature changes, is effected by the culture in which it lives, by the needs of its people, by the direction life demands of it, so that it may continue to grow. God remains the constant. Therefore, Gods nature is not one of changing values. Values are in constant flux. The constancy of Christ/God lives SOULY in PRINCIPLES. PRINCIPLES are forever. They never change, because they live in the constantcy of GOD.
To be aware of God within us, values need to be left to the changes of the earth. We must become more aware of what within us lives forever. We must see what is within us, that doesnt change. That has no flux. That will stand up to time. This may be where the world is....this may be the meaning of the END OF TIMES..We maybe ready to live as individuals who are no longer tossed by the movement of changing values. This maybe the time each individual will find the principle upon which he was built. This may be your time to find the principle that defines you.. that part of your nature, that will live forever.
