THE FIRST MEETING
At the first meeting Mark, Gino and three other friends came as they had promised, at the beginning of this meeting we were all behaving just like children, we all wanted to push above all our own views without listening to each other, so I thought that the meeting was going to be just a waste of time. But then, my friend Mark soon became aware of my feelings and he said; Look the way we are going about is not going to get us anywhere, and since we are here to help Fran, then, let Fran be the one that talks first. After he states his views we will have plenty of time to state our own views.
So, there and then, I had to put my very mixed thoughts into words, and I didn’t even know how to start, as confusion was on my mind, not because I was really confused, but because what I wanted to say was so complex, just because what I was aiming to achieve in these future writings I had in mind was complex, but in the end I said:
My dear friends, I can feel within my heart that you are my friends indeed, because you have come forward to help me on this very difficult decision that I am facing. Now let it be understood before we start that this task of mine is not going to be easy for anyone of us to achieve, so if you still want to help me to succeed in writing my religious theory, first of all I will have to tell you why it is going to be hard.
First of all, what I have in mind to write is going to be a very controversial subject, so there will be lots of people that are not going to agree with my views and if you are my helper they are not going to like you for helping me. So you better consider that for your self is that understood?
Having warned you of what might happen to us all, now I feel free to say how I see this unusual situation and try to reason what can be done. I believe that it really takes a few very wise people to be able to begin solving this problematic situation, and whether the existing situation could and would be solved nobody knows. So this question arises; are we going to be wise enough to solve it?
So let me talk a little about Wisdom, which is something that has just come to our minds and we are going to need so much.
My views about knowledge and wisdom:
Wisdom is the mental capacity of a wise person, whom when confronted with a problem is able to solve it better then the average person.
His/her wisdom is usually an accumulated knowledge of all those events that this person has lived during his/her life; therefore this wise person is capable somehow of using this accumulated knowledge, and when a problem arises he/she would be able to solve it better than the others.
I don’t know exactly why one wise person becomes wiser than somebody else, even though they might have lived most of the same events together, so, I guess that some people are better able to assimilate their knowledge, perhaps by storing it at the highest level in their own mind and when the need arises use this accumulated knowledge.
Since wisdom (accumulated knowledge) may be stored at one level higher that just reason, it may seem and feel like a sixth sense to the wise man that has it. So, I would say that the wise man would use reasoning just to back up his wisdom.
There is also a small possibility that the wise person may be able to tune into the cosmos, which is thought that it may be able to store the entire accumulated knowledge of everything just like God, this thought of course gives rise to this question.
Is the cosmos an integral part of God of the universe? Well it may be part of God.
But here we are talking about wisdom and not God. So the definition of wisdom and where it comes from may still remain a mystery to most of us, but that does not matter because we can use wisdom our accumulated knowledge to achieve our goals. Therefore we are going to use our accumulated knowledge, which together with our logic reasoning may be able to come close to achieve our goal. And now that the time has come for us to do something about it, I see that there is a time for everything and let me state it clearly, so that we may understand better the situation.
THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYTHING.
My dear friends, let me say just a few more words about this present time: I believe and I am sure that most people would agree with me that there is a time for everything; here I mean that things may change continually and what today seems just perfect as it is, tomorrow may seem completely out of place, therefore, some adjustment would be required to make it good again.
But now let me go back to the facts that I was telling you in the beginning, because this may be why that supernatural event happened to me.
Even before the supernatural encounter that I have mentioned before took place, I was aware that the world’s religions clashed with each others in many ways, and that it was indeed time for somebody somehow to come up with some new ideas on how to fix those differences, in order to make the world a better place to live in. So, I was thinking and asking myself, what anyone could possibly do to improve this unrealistic damaging religious situation.
In order to understand the situation better and for my own good, I did some research and read a few religious books, and after thinking a lot about what I had read, by pure logic of reasoning I came to my own conclusion of the existing situation, and therefore I formed my own beliefs.
Here I want to point out to you that I have reached my own conclusion by pure logic of human reasoning, and I want also to say this, I believe that we (the human race) are now ready and able to understand our own religious situation better than before, and therefore, we are able to do some thing about it, as we are now advancing rapidly in all fields of learning, thanks to the computer and other electronic devices that bring knowledge to the people at large. So the people in general are now entering the age of knowledge and REASON, and everything that in the future will not be able to stand to our logic benevolent human REASON or reasons, which is the scrutiny of all aspect of life and beliefs will be rejected by humanity.
Now, having reached this stage of understanding, I was looking for some signs or news that humanity was doing something about it, in order to rectify this religious problem; but I was shocked to see that nobody was doing anything worthwhile which would be able to improve the situation.
So, I came to the conclusion that perhaps I should be doing something myself, and having this in mind I started to write a few articles just for myself to see if I could come up with any good ideas on how to achieve something useful, therefore I had already writing some of my own religious beliefs when that supernatural encounter happened. Perhaps it was just because I had written those religious writings that encounter happened.
You may ask why I started writing them. And I will tell you that deep within my heart my soul and my mind I was feeling that I had to do something about my religious beliefs, because in my mind eyes I felt as if I was called to write them.
Here I am not going to be able to write all the reasons why I am writing this paragraph but what I would like to say is that in a way the human race has left it become overdue, even though at the same time one may say that humanity is advanced so much and we have reached the age of reason.
My dear friends let me ask you this:
Do you think that by pulling our knowledge together and working together we would be able to improve on the present situation?
And if you think that it is worthwhile to try, how should we do it?
Now you can have your say whenever you are ready.
MY FRIENDS ANSWERS:
After a long talk considering what I had just said Gino came to me and said: We understand now why you are slow in accepting our help, but really we are so much interested in your writing project that we are ready to help you.
We have been thinking that just to make things easy for everybody involved, we have decided that I (Gino) and Mark will speak for all our friends when we think that you should know our views. So that it would be easier for you to keep records of what is being said, because if you are really to write this theory, which you have in mind, you need to keep records of everything that is being said.
Then I said: I agree with you that I have to keep records otherwise I will get lost in the jungle of all what is being said to me.
And they kept talking to me for another hour at least, and as we were talking they realized that the only way for me to achieve in my writings what I wanted to achieve was to modify existing religious beliefs, here I want to point out that I only was saying to them that they need to be modified in my writings and not changed, but they became really concerned and shocked from this necessary change, for them it seemed that perhaps I had lost my mind, because they have always believed in the way they had been brought up according to the Christian teaching; so they asked me:
Don’t you think that believing in anything else other than what is written in the Bible would be a sin? And you seem to move away from the Bible teachings?
We are a bit worried about this aspect of your beliefs, so we would like to hear how you are going to explain your beliefs in such a way that they would still be agreeable to God and the rest of the community?
I know it is not going to be easy, I said; and for this reason I am thinking hard what to say or do next.
And they kept talking and asking questions like the following.
If you have in mind to read and review the Bible, what parts of the Bible do you have in mind to review?
We believe that first of all you ought to make sure what you want to say or do, because we see it could even be a bit dangerous to do and say what you want to do and say.
Therefore, we council you to pray God for guidance and for help first of all, Mark and Gino said, because you are really going to need a lot of help and acceptance from above to succeed in your attempt about writing this theory of yours.
Then the meeting was adjourned, as we had spent too much time already on this matter, I was feeling tired and so were my friends, and everyone went to his own home to rest.
That night I started really thinking whether to pray God for help, and how I should pray God in order to be allowed by God to write my theory my own way.
Before I say and write my prayer, I want the reader to know that the prayers within this book will be prayers directed only to God, as God is the highest and most holy of all existing entities, therefore to pray to anything else will not make sense.
This prayer will be included in next post.
