Sin is not a blemish on our souls. Love (the feeling of it) is what we take with us when we leave Earth. We don't take sin with us, therefore sin is just a distraction that creates feelings we don't get to take with us to the next plain of consciousness. That's why sin (when we don't learn from it) amounts to a big waste of time. Sin that we don't learn from is essentially the killing of time. Time we could have spent giving and receiving love, or learning how to love through others and books, followed by practice. We must practice loving each other. Love is the feeling that we DO get to take beyond this day and will help us in a way no one fully understands.
The human heart is not full of sin! It is symmetrical. Look at the conceptual shape of a heart. Symmetry means balance. Perfection is not the goal for us as a people. The goal is balance. Balance IS perfection. And the "balance" receipe for each of us varies. Yet, all of what we remember from this Earth school that is tied directly to love, will serve as the bread crumbs that will lead us all home. Memories of love are the souvenirs of our life here and the access key to our destination. All of our memories of love will be compiled on judgement day collectively. On this day, there will be no weak links, there will be no competition. We will remember, that we are in this thing together ,by choice, by free will, and under one God. its a choice that we made in another time, and was a pact with God. Therefore, the law that governs this world, that law of free will, is also the law that brought us to this world and also the one that takes us from it (choice weaves through all of this life). You chose to be here, and also when you would leave. You don't remember it because that is the design of being human. Can you recall a specific sneeze? The feelings of love though run deeper than the memory, but the memory is what triggers it. And music always zaps you back to a time in your life worth remembering. We will remember the love that what we have forgotten and all the other stuff, sin, is just stuff that gets in the way, time-filler.
Michael Jackson's Human Nature song had always been so bizarre to me until now. He sang "and they say, why, why, tell em that it's human nature, why, why does he do me that way?" We have been told that our nature is to destroy, is to sin. That is NOT our nature. Yes, we sin, and I'm certainly not advocating it here, for I have sinned plenty. But I also think that the sin is a distraction from what our real human nature is: compassion. And it is fear that intercepts this current of love and caries it wayward causing us to lose our way. The nature of human beings is to love, but we do sin out of fear, cause we don't want to be made to wait by love, and we are wasting valuable time by not creating the memories of love that we will need one day. Wake up! And I will start with the Man in the Mirror. I already have in writing this. Now I must live it.
