JohnCalvin There is no one keeping records up there. The records are here in the heart and I am going to have to deal with them. That is far more painful than having a record keeping God up in the skies. So I or anyone who is setting out on the path to enlightenment will eventually become absolutely impeccable in every thing that they do. Is it because of a fear of damnation or of the punishment of wrathful God? Or because one has sinned and hasn't asked forgiveness? No, no, no and no. These are only excuses that lead us away from the real problem. The truly enlightened person will see that every action has a reaction with which they must deal. Not only do we do unto others but as we do unto others we are doing unto ourselves. And if a person is wise then they are not going to do stuff that will cause them to have to later face it and resolve it and balance it in their soul.

beopentogod "Deep within us all there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continously return. Eternity is at our hearts, pressing upon our time-torn lives, warming us with intimations of an astounding destiny, calling us home unto Itself. Yielding to these persuasions, gladly committing ourselves in body and soul, utterly and completely to the Light within, is the beginning of Life." Thomas Kelly
