I was reading Wayne Dyer’s latest book & he referred to Jesus’ comments in John 10:34 where Jesus is having the following discourse:
“I have shown you many good things which my Father sent me to do. Which one are you going to stone me for? “
They answered, “We are not stoning you for any good thing you did. We are stoning you for claiming to be God”
Jesus replied, “In your scriptures doesn’t God say, Ye are Gods? So why do you accuse me for saying that I am the Son of God? The Father is one with me & I am one with the Father.”
I have discussed this topic before & have tried to capture the essence of who we are. We all have a creative side, the spark, or the light, that emanates us. Is that the Father that Jesus was talking about? If so, how could we use that aspect of ourselves to further our own well being & numerous others?
Years ago, I read Paul Ray’s book on Cultural Creatives
“Core Cultural Creatives – Paul Ray
Just under half of the CC population, this segment comprises the more educated, leading-edge thinkers. This group includes many writers, artists, musicians, psychotherapists, feminists, alternative health care providers and other professionals. They combine a serious focus on their ‘spirituality’ (Spirituality can refer to an ultimate or an alleged immaterial reality; an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his/her being; or the deepest values and meanings by which people live) with a strong passion for social activism.
(Activism consists of intentional efforts to promote, impede or direct social, political, economic, or environmental change.)” Wikipedia
Richard Florida, University of Toronto, has since written of the Creative Class:
“Every single human being is creative. The biggest challenge of the creative age is to lift the bottom up and encourage a prosperous, vibrant and sustainable community for all.” Richard Florida
Reading Paul Ray, he had numbered the Cultural Creatives as a % of the population at large. I see Richard Florida says ‘every single human being’.
It appears we all have this ability but whether & how much we use it, is up to us.
Let me go a little further. Is this ability ‘who we are’? The I Am of us?
Are we Son’s of God as Jesus mentioned? Is there anything about his comment that we should listen to literally? He certainly seemed confident & evidently went around doing some amazing things.
This is not a religious discourse, this is a search for meaning.
If we really believed & actually were what he said we are, then we wouldn’t have to win the lotto to completely change the world or our world. It would be a matter of ‘seeing’ from a whole different perspective.
As straight forward as that sounds, it is very difficult in this physical plane, that daily throws issues our way.
Ye Gads or should I say, Gods!
