What Nature Teaches Us about Hard Times and Good Times

Published

on

I am a great fan of wildlife documentaries – especially those produced by Sir David Attenborough– because they teach me a lot about life. For instance, last week as I was watching a documentary about The Great Savannah, I learned something valuable about difficult times and good times.

From the documentary, I discovered that both hard and good times are part of life. However, what I mainly realized was that hard times come to an end, and they are never that hard because there is always something to keep us moving during these times. The Creator never takes everything away during difficult times because he needs our survival since he expresses himself through us.

In the Great Savannah, almost all animals suffer during the dry season because grass dries. Herbivores suffer because they rely on grass: most of them either die or migrate. When the herbivores die or migrate, the carnivores also suffer because their food reduces in great quantities.

Besides grass drying, many waterbodies dry up hence making it difficult for animals to find water. The few sources of water left become dangerous places since all animals including buffaloes, lions, and elephants compete for the little water left.

The good thing is that, in this dry season, there is some food and water – even though little – that enables animals to survive. If the dry season wiped out everything in the Savannah, then all animals could have died. However, the Creator cannot let all animals die because they are his physical expression. For this reason, he ensures that there is a little water and grass left for animals to survive the dry season.

Similarly, we must know that there’s always something to keep us going during hard times. The universe never takes everything away during these times.

Besides this, I realized that when hard times come, they pavé way for the good times. In the Savannah, the dry season causes bushfires to occur. These bushfires burn dead and old grass to pavé the way for the growth of young, greener plants that will feed animals during the wet season.

Nature, therefore, teaches us that difficult times are necessary because they pavé the way for good times. In my life, I observed that hard times usually prepare me for good times because they make me see things differently and inspire me to go after what I truly want.

Anyway, while watching the documentary, I also noticed that the rains usually come when the season is extremely dry. This occurrence teaches us that it’s always darkest before dawn, and for this reason, hitting rock bottom is a sign that the good times are around the corner.

I also discovered that the rainy season brings an excessive supply of food and water to the animals in the Savannah. Rivers overflow, grass grows in abundance, and many herbivores give birth during the rainy season hence making carnivorous animals enjoy an abundance of easy prey.

Similarly, I realized that when good times come to us humans, the universe usually provides everything in excess that we forget that we one day lacked the things we now have.

With this in mind, we must persevere the bad times knowing that when they end, The Universe will give us more than enough. It will give us plenty of love, food, money, and everything we need for living a good life.

By the way, this is not a motivational article. It’s a realization and explanation of natural laws. I wrote the article so that you know that hard times are not that hard because the universe always provides us something to keep us moving during these times. Moreover, I wanted you to stop worrying when hard times come because they will end and pave the way for a season of abundance.

To sum up, I wanted you to realize that The Creator is a wonderful spirit that provides to us during hard times, and ensures we have more than enough in good times, which will always come. THIS IS THE LAW.

The Problem with the Christian Concept of God

The Problem with the Christian Concept of God

The Biblical God, ‘was a God of wrath and vengeance sitting over the world. This God demanded an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and only the blind unquestioning, and complete obedience of his creation satisfied this universal autocrat.’ – Manly P. Hall: The Wisdom of the Knowing Ones.

Born in a Christian family, I loved reading the Bible and watching Biblical films – that my mum bought– because I wanted to understand how God works. My interest in the Christian God resulted in me earning an A in Christian Religious Education (CRE), a subject that claimed to expose God’s revelations.

However, I started doubting the Christian God after studying ancient spiritual philosophy and embracing deep thinking. I realized that whatever created the world is a mysterious, impersonal, unknowable force, and therefore, the knowable Christian God was created by the religious leaders of the Christian age.

These leaders believed God behaved like man, and thus created an egotistical God (If you’ve read the Bible, I believe you’ve noticed how the Christian God possesses egoic behavior).

This God forces people to worship him and becomes angry when people worship other gods.

For instance, in Exodus 20, he becomes mad when the Israelites bow down to an idol, for he tells Moses, ‘I have seen these people, and they are stiff-necked people. Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them.’ Besides this, he promises to throw those who don’t obey him in eternal fire.

He also refers to those who worship him as ‘his chosen ones’, and orders the killing of anyone who attacks these folks. For instance, he orders Saul to eradicate Amalek, an enemy of Israel. According to Samuel 15, he says, ‘Go now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and assess.’

Besides being egotistical, another problem I noticed, is that the Christian God lives far away from the earth. He dwells in heaven while we dwell on the earth. This concept of God is responsible for the belief that God is separate from man. It has made people believe they are servants of God, rather than part of him.

Many Christians will be offended by this post, but I don’t care because I’m writing the TRUTH, which will eventually set us free. My Christian readers must know that their concept of God is man-made, and it was created by egoic men who claimed to be spiritual.

The true God, our Creator, is unknowable as Hermes Trismegistus, the wisest man ever, claimed, ‘God is Spirit, which in itself is unknowable and undefinable, but which may be considered and thought of us an Infinite Mind.

No one, including ancient spiritual masters, could define God, and no one will ever know where he came from, what he is, and how he created us. We might only know his principles by studying nature, but we’ll never know he’s personality because we have limited minds. However, we might fully know him when we die because after death, our souls might dissolve into his consciousness.

Is There an Afterlife?

Is There an Afterlife?

I’ve always doubted the idea of an afterlife because I compared death to sleep. However, my beliefs about the afterlife changed after studying ancient cultures and modern religion.

I realized that most ancient cultures, for instance, the Africans, Arabians, and Greeks, believed in an afterlife despite living far apart.

The Greeks believed the soul survived death and went to Hades. Moreover, they believed good Greeks enjoyed life after death while evil Greeks were tormented.’ Also, all African cultures believed their ancestors’ spirits survived death, and they regularly poured libation to them. Some African cultures even performed burial ceremonies and rituals that ensured their beloved ones traveled safely to the spirit world.

Besides ancient cultures, modern religions believe in life after death. For instance, both Muslims and Christians believe we survive death, and our current actions determine our experience after death.  As well, Buddhists believe in the afterlife because death only leads to the end of the body, but not the spirit. They believe that an individual can be reborn after death.

With that in mind, can it be possible that an afterlife doesn’t exist considering that ancient cultures living far away from each other believed in life after death? Did religions and ancient cultures make up the idea of life after death?

I believe the intuitive abilities of ancient/deeply religious folks allowed them to realize the existence of an afterlife, and I support them because I recently discovered that we have a spirit-self besides our egoic and physical self. I think death only eradicates the physical and egoic-self but fails to eliminate the spirit-self.

Also, the fact that we are energy beings forces me to support the idea of an afterlife because as Einstein said, ‘Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.’ Maybe we survive death because it only alters our form by turning us into pure spiritual entities without a body.

Furthermore, my belief in the spirit world forces me to support life after death because this world allows souls to experience life without a human body.

Anyway, we’ll never know if an afterlife truly exists. But we must strive to live life to the fullest because, if life after death exists, we might regret failing to live up to our full potential. Maybe our eyes will open when we die, and we’ll realize that we stressed over trivial things instead of enjoying life in a magical and blessed world.

Peace Be With You
