Audio version read by Rev. Steven Lane Taylor, B.Msc.
As the expression goes, “There is a time and a season for everything.” This very fundamental truth of Universal experience applies to every soul entering or exiting this physical earth dimension. Nothing in this Universe is by chance. Everything and everyone is part of a very integrated and complex Universal Process. Entire species have appeared and disappeared from the earth plane dimension. Everything has its time, or at least, the appearance of it. Everything exists and comes into being in Universal Consciousness or the Mind of God.
There is a larger picture—the Universe—with smaller details in the picture, such as the individual human expression. And yet the larger and the smaller are identical, and therefore everything is interdependent—that is, one could not exist without the other. As the seen universe is always in motion, all of its parts or details or humans are part of a very integrated process. What happens with one of its parts—the human—affects the entire whole, and how it manifests. Each depends on the existence of the other in order to exist.
To be a total picture, a picture is dependent on the sum of its details, and concurrently, the details could not exist if they were not a part of the total picture. What is taking place in one human life—even if that one human were totally isolated and lived on a far-off mountain or in a cave—affects and interacts with all that exists, including millions in a bustling cosmopolitan city on the physical earth plane, as well as the cosmos.
Because of this unfathomable interaction between a Universal Whole constantly in process and the sum of its parts or humans, nothing is left to chance. All must be coordinated or there would be monumental chaos on a Universal scale. If one subscribes to the Big Bang theory, imagine an endless series of Big Bangs with chaotic presence through eternity.
All of this comes back to a season and a time for all things—a time to be born and a time to die, a season to have one’s soul move from inhabiting a human body on to its next expression or manifestation. Think of the Universal Presence as one large Cosmic Clock. Everything that exists is part of the mechanism, or in this case, the integrated and interacting parts of Universal Timing. This means that everything that is born will be born, have its season or timed existence in a certain dimensional time, and then move on to a different dimensional time.
All human beings have a certain amount of preprogrammed time to exist in this physical earth dimension. This is part of their spiritual DNA, as it were. Whether to live only a few seconds after physical birth or to live on to be a centenarian, all is a matter of being coordinated with the Universal Consciousness or the Will of God. If a person survives a horrific accident or a critical surgery or any other physically life-threatening experience, it was because he or she was programmed so, according to Universal Timing or the Will of God.
In Universal Reality, one cannot escape fate, for what will be, already is. What supposedly will happen has already happened, for we exist in one Eternal Moment of Time. Everyone has a certain amount of time or existence within the outer appearance, or illusion, of the passing of time—not one moment less or one moment more. Everyone’s existence relies on the creation and continuation by Universal Consciousness or God.
In mystical reality, God is the Real and Only Life of one’s soul and human embodiment. And thus, one can trust that God knows best the timing of every human’s life expression or the longevity of Spirit in expression.
What to do?
- With the good of all and the Will of God in mind, live one’s life to the fullest, as if each day were the last.
- Do the very best one can. It does not matter that one is the very best—only that one does one’s best.
Be at Peace, for God controls longevity.
