Hope you’re having a wonderful day. Today, I’m bringing you all the 23rd rule of Love from the novel The Forty Rules of Love.
The human being has a unique place among God’s creation. “I breathed into him of My Spirit,” God says. Each and every one of us without exception is designed to be God’s delegate on earth. Ask yourself, just how often do you behave like a delegate, if you ever do so? Remember, it fells upon each of us to discover the divine spirit inside and live by it.
Some religions consider us to be sinners or fallen souls and through spiritual practices, one can go back to the God’s heavenly kingdom. This might be true. But, what if we consider ourselves to be delegates of God to extend the Kingdom on the earth? Could it be that God sent us to this planet to make it heaven? And perhaps we did forget our objective and feel lost?
I don’t know which of these speculations is the actual truth and perhaps both can be true. Nonetheless, recognizing our true (spiritual) nature is very important. Then comes the next challenge which is to live by it.
Thanks for reading.
