proof God exist!

Friends, if evil, cold, dark exist even though physics says that it doesn't really,  you know what  that makes us!!!

Did God create evil? A University professor at a well known institution challenged his students with this question. "Did God create everything that exists?" A student bravely replied, "Yes he did!" "God created everything?" The professor asked. "Yes sir, he certainly did," the student replied. The professor answered, "If God created everything; then God created evil. And, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then we can assume God is evil." [note: this is faulty reasoning to begin with, but stick with the story...] The student became quiet and did not answer the professor's hypothetical definition. The professor, quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once more that faith was a myth. Another student raised his hand and said, "May I ask you a question, professor?"Of course", replied the professor. The student stood up and asked, "Professor, does cold exist?" "What kind of question is this? Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?" The other students snickered at the young man's question. The young man replied, "In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy.Absolute zero (-460 F) is the total absence of heat; and all matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not exist. We have ... The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?" The professor responded, "Of course it does." The student , "Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can study, but not darkness. In fact, we can use Newton's prism to break white light into many colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light can break into a world of darkness and illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of "Sir, does evil exist?", continued the (wise)student. Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course, as I have already said. We see it everyday. It is in the daily examples of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil. (note: again this is faulty reasoning, but please continue on... ) To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist, sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat, or the darkness that comes when there is no light."
The professor sat down.

proof God exist!

I don't like the word evil, precisely because it is
such a loaded term. We assign powerful and sinful
connotations to it that cloud our vision today. When
Eve took the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good
and Evil she was following God's directions. In this
tree, the World Tree spoken of in many mythologies,
good and evil are one misinterpretation of the idea of
duality. Yin and Yang. At the top, the place of
heaven, is unity. At the bottom where the world is
born, is multiplicity, encompassing all pairs of
duality including pleasure and pain. Before we could
take the fruit of immortality (the Tree of Life)we
were to first understand the hard lessons of physical
existence. We reached out, ate, and agreed to take
God's love with us further down the ladder of creation
into physical manifestation. When Adam left the
Garden, the Holy Mother of All, Eve, ("Eve" means just
that)went with him to love him and she acts as a
physical vehicle for love to blossom within the human
union of opposites, yin and yang.

I don't think that evil exists. What does exist is
fear, (the real opposite to love), perhaps even
extreme fear, anger, loss, pain, lesser emotions that
too often drive people to do despicable things. And to
make those acts more acceptable to the hurting heart
lesser ideas and dogmas are created to support that
behavior. Because of this it becomes obvious that Love
really is the only way to salvation.

According to some who understand reincarnation we are
all sensitive to "evil" acts precisely because we have
all committed those same acts in previous lives. We
have learned the devastating effects of pain inflicted
on others. And we have become extremely compassionate
to those who are victims.

We have two ways to come to love. The best way is by
opening our hearts to it, and Gloria's Heavenletters
are a powerful expression of that pathway. The other
way is to act as we have all done, without God or
compassion. Then karma kicks in to teach us the
effects of our actions thru direct experience. We have
all been victims in the past as karmic retribution for
earlier actions, and we have learned just how painful
and destructive those actions were. We now have grown
to learn that love is the only way, and as we come to
this time of transition into a new age, we will now be
given the opportunity to return to the Garden and eat
of the fruit of immortality. If we learned in any
other manner then we would have all been enlightened
many thousands of years ago.
