If you hired God as the architect of your life what would you expect of her services? Your spiritual growth tells you that you have a choice of two Gods to choose from; the God of separation and fear or the God of love and oneness. Use this spirituality information to compare the two and then decide which one serves you in your life construction project. It is a fun analogy.
The architect of oneness doesn’t advertise like the architect of separateness does. The architect of oneness is strictly word of mouth. This architect knows that the product she is providing speaks for itself and if you want to learn more about the product you don’t have to go outside of yourself to hear about it. It is with you always. Just ask yourself. Dial the internal code, hit the speaker button and you are in contact with your architect, your source.
On the other hand, the architect of separateness needs the help of advertising to spread the word of his product. He uses the marketing expertise of the ego in order to entice the less discriminating builder into this house of mirrors. Most of his advertising budget goes to a distribution network known as religion. He uses almost all of the known religions to endorse and distribute the information that would allow you to believe in the viability of his product.
They know that if you just use a comparison test where you put the product, the belief that we are separate, up against the other product, the belief that we are one, then the customer, the discriminating observer, would see that the product delivered on the foundation of oneness is able to stand alone with no props.
It is flexible enough to meet future demands for improvement and upgrades. It has an endless warehouse of supplies and materials that are available anytime, anywhere. It has a support staff that truly believes in their product and honors all designs submitted by their clients, their builders. All structures, all lives, are viable and are never judged by any standard except what the client, the builder, desires. No structure, no life, is ever condemned as being unworthy and there are no conditions that need to exist in order to make the architect achieve certain goals.
The client, the builder, you, are the one who determines the structure of your life so whatever you choose for yourself is neither superior nor inferior to anything else that is built by any other client. It is what it is because that is what is so. There is no ignorance about the process because all of the knowledge concerning the process is available to the client whenever and wherever they choose to know about it. They only need to go within themselves and the architect will reveal it to them.
So, let’s put this comparison test up to the alternative. You know, I was going to say let’s compare this to the competition but actually there is no competition here. The belief that we are separate might lead you to believe that these are competing forces but, actually, it all comes down to a matter of choice. Which belief system do you chose? Which belief system serves you?
Continuing with our comparison test, we need to examine the product built upon the belief that we are separate. The first thing we notice is that the client, the builder, has certain needs that cannot always be met with this architect who builds upon a foundation of separateness. The first fundamental need that cannot always be met is the ability to communicate clearly and directly with the architect. This architect is separate from you and is therefore not always there when you need him. This failure to communicate can have disastrous results when critical phases of construction need to be re-scheduled because you can’t get hold of the architect. You try to get hold of him by contacting his sub-contractors via the mechanism called religion but they don’t have the same training and construction abilities as the architect so often their advice is not in alignment with what the architect would tell you.
You can leave the architect a voice-mail by using the vehicle known as prayer but this architect seems to be very busy working on more expensive, grander projects that seem to be more important to him than your particular structure, your life.
You begin to discover that it is a real pain-in-the-butt to work with an architect that is separate from you and so hard to get a hold of when critical phases of the construction of your life need his attention and assistance.
Not only can you not communicate efficiently with this architect about the structure of your life but you also continually run into the problem of not enough materials and supplies to keep the project on schedule. Unlike the architect of oneness, this architect of separateness does not maintain a fully stocked warehouse. There is an insufficient supply of what is needed and therefore this architect needs to see a specific requirement by you, the builder, before he can fill the needs of what you require to build your life.
Can you see how this analogy of God as the architect of your choice of life structure is critical in building your life exactly as you desire it to be. When you employ an architect you are separate from it is just harder to get what you want out of life. However the architect that you are totally in alignment with and one in your thoughts and ideas can build you any structure of life that you want.
