Today’s Sophy (part 5)
Whom shall [God] teach knowledge; and whom shall [God] make to understand doctrine; them that are weaned from the milk (daughters of men’s teachings), and drawn from the breasts (their ministers and teachers) was asked of us and to me that is demanding seekers of truth to…
Study Independent of Groups.
The next few verses after the above quote reveals bits, pieces, lines and precepts has to be taken from many different places, including other than scripture, if one desire to understand the message for man.
First off, we should take into account the Christ’s words to forsake father, mother, sister, brother, [husbands], wives, children, houses and land is suggesting we daughters of man follow his example to have no place for our head while going into all the world. Then we should add Paul’s saying to the Romans the invisible things of [God] from the creation of the world are clearly seen being understood by the things that are made. Those passages alone reveal our studies should be independent and alone especially where the Christ said teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you.
Isaiah saying God shall be our teacher is the same as spoken by Christ who included teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you. Few of us realize to teach includes questioning and answering by students and teachers since the saying goes, the best teacher is a student. That’s because the independent reasonings of others often reveal different perspectives to the one’s sharing their views then the others are allows one to weigh their perspective against the others during later reasoning for integrating or rejecting them. My findings, most of the time I had to shaves something off of my perspective and theirs for them to match like hand in glove. That means we are not to immediately reject nor accept any concept without further meditating.
I’m giving the example of karma and reaping what you sowing. They have the same bottom line meaning. The actual definition of karma is It Is and is the same definition for the name Jehovah, I Am That I Am. Those definitions mean nothing is ever good or evil they are what their nomenclatures define them as.
As an example I will use a friend who found relief from her anguish in a threesome situation. She had married the boyfriend of a girl she deemed very beautiful who kept photos of her on his computer that distress her to no end. She passed me stresses out one day and I invited her to talk with me about it. She did. After hearing her explanation I asked what had she brought to the table that the other girl hadn’t and who has him now. Then I explained to her, if this is your last incarnation, as I believe it is, in a previous incarnation you were her and you are paying off that karma. She left to meditate on it and returned joyously weeks later with her husband fully satisfied. What I didn’t explain is both the girl and her husband are in her timeline so she had been both.
Why all concepts are to be independently studied, independently meditated on and shared is because testimony of experiences is far more effective than repeating what is written.
