So it Goes Around and Around
By Mahavatar Babaji:
Christ said: “Whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him, but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, or the world to come.” (Christian Bible - Matthew 12:32)
Let it be known that this verse has not been understood in its entirety through time and translations. Christ was speaking of the true nature of man, which has the inherent capability to realize his Divinity as: “My Father and I are one,” which Christ taught also. If one realizes this great truth, then this verse takes on a depth of meaning that one cannot understand without realizing that he also, like Christ, may say in truth, “My Father and I are one.”
How can one speak against the Son of Man? Christ was speaking of the times each one makes choices which go against his natural nature such as the verities of life known as: lust, greed, anger, disloyalty, and judgment. These choices keep one on the wheel of karma which necessitates returning to Earth again and again in ignorance of who one really is. This “speaking against the Son of man” is forgiven in the sense that one’s physical form is temporary and God grants new forms through reincarnation to come again and again until one realizes his true nature. It is time we come to the center of the Self, the heart of the Self, and take the courage to forge ahead no matter when trials and tests come along the way of ourselves and also other people “speaking against the Son of Man—You.”
When one speaks against the Holy Spirit, it is speaking and acting against one’s own true nature. When Christ said this cannot be forgiven in this world or the world to come, he meant that one must balance his karma in order to move forward with his spiritual growth. One is not forgiven in this world or the next for speaking and acting against the Holy Spirit, within, until one balances this karma, the samskaras one accumulates while incarnated. Remember that first one has to forgive himself through correcting his choices which were not aligned with his true inner nature.
And so it goes around and around until one comes home to the truth of the Self: God-Self-Realization.
“It is possible to fulfill the purpose of your incarnation only if you surrender body, mind and soul completely to God. Let go of your identity, let go of this “I”, this egoism that causes you to focus only on the outside. When you let go of your identity, then the Divine will reveal Itself to you. Then you will see the Unlimited and you will feel the blissful happiness.
“Know one thing: Whenever you do good, some people always will be against you. Why? Because, inwardly, they would like to do something the same, but they can’t. They try their best, but yet they can’t. Then what happens? They become against; this is how they express their love.” –Swami Vishwananda
During his talk on February 5, 2011, Swami Vishwananda recently said to the people there: "You should study the Bible. This is your culture here. You should know it better than anybody else – even better than me.
