Into the Mystics
Mike's Common Sense
There are many major religions in this world, and all but one has something in common. They all have a savior, or divine Soul that came to teach people about love, and God. The only exception is the Jewish religion who, have not yet recognized their savior, but have had numerous prophets, to teach them the way.
Each of these religions’ focus is directed entirely on their own savior without regard to any of the others. It is as if the followers of all religions were wearing blinders, so they cannot see the lives of the other saviors, prophets, and mystics that have also come to help mankind evolve spiritually. The blinders that the followers wear are so large that they not only do not recognize other saviors, but they fight wars and kill each other over whose savior is the true Son of God.
This is something that all God saturated Souls would be aghast about, and would never want to be associated with.
It seems to me that the followers of all religions worship their messenger, but have not got their message: love, compassion, forgiveness, gratitude.
In the course of human history there have been literally hundreds, if not thousands of these enlightened beings who have come into this world to uplift mankind and teach the lessons of love. Not one of these beings came to start a religion. All religions were started after these souls departed the physical. They were started by their followers, who were not as spiritually advanced, but wanted to spread the words of their beloved.
The purpose of this article is to bring to light a few of these mystics, and saviors, that came, taught, and were often martyred for their efforts. If you are not aware of many of these names, I recommend that you Google them to learn of their teachings, and how they helped the people of their times. It is time we all took off our blinders and realized there have been many God saturated Souls. They all are basically teaching the same lesson; love God, love yourself, and love your neighbor as yourself.
Jesus, Krishna, Rama, Mohammad, Buddha, Lao Tse, Zarathustra, Kabir, Rumi, Confucius, Pythagoras, Plato, Rebazar Tarz, Gopal Das, Padre Pio, Lao Tzu, The Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Moses, St. Paul, Paul Twitchell, and Harold Klemp.
These are just a few of the divine souls who have come to help man evolve.
Each of these Souls came to uplift, and teach the peoples of their regions, and times. They all came for one reason; their love for God, and their desire to teach others of that love which will show them the way.
If we can awaken to the similarities of these mystics, we can begin to understand our oneness as a people of God, and not dwell on the supposed differences. We can start loving each other as sons and daughters of God instead of killing each other.
I know all of the above would be very happy with that.
