Audio version read by Rev. Steven Lane Taylor, B.Msc.
Honoring our differences—as long as they are not self-destructive or bring harm to others—is honoring God, because, in the final analysis, all differences between people are individualized expressions of God.
Through the ages, religion has very often divided people—labeling some as being on the side of God’s Will, and others as being some lower order of life. This religious influence has brought great misery, for example, to the lives of many whose sexuality was not heterosexual. To the religious extremist, to be gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, or transsexual is to be anti-God. This has led to much prejudice, violence, and even killing of people whose manner of sexual expression and interest is in contrast to heterosexuals.
Mystically, all life is seen and known to be an expression of God individualized into form and embodiment. All that is can only be so because the Ultimate God Power and Will of the Universe has created it to be so, and that includes how every soul comes into physical manifestation. Each human form and manifestation is a God-directed manifestation—not a human-governed choice.
Here’s the Reality:
Life is an on-going process. There is nothing motionless in the manifesting of life by Spirit, Universal Consciousness, or God. All that is, is constantly on the move, constantly processing. Life’s process is also one of constant refinement to achieve balance within the soul-self—that part of everyone that is closest to Universal Consciousness.
Balance is constantly being gained or lost as the soul-self passes through various stages of spiritual awakening to its Ultimate Oneness with God. A balancing pendulum swings back and forth through physical lifetimes and non-physical lifetimes—that is, lifetimes between physical incarnations. This process involves the balancing of masculine and feminine energies at each progressive level of spiritual awakening.
Everything is in motion, including gender expression. If a soul is lacking the masculine energy needed to achieve balance at a certain level of spiritual awakening, the masculine energy force will be automatically increased, whether the soul is in physical or non-physical astral embodiment.
As this balancing of male and female energies is constantly a work in progress, a soul whose time has once again come to incarnate physically may be in a transitional part of the process. Thus, when this soul enters physical embodiment, the gender is in a state of transition—transferring from masculine to feminine or feminine to masculine—possibly with no one energy clearly defined or dominant.
Everyone who may be gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, or transsexual is in the process of a transitional gender change. This gender change is usually gradual over many lifetimes. With each level of spiritual awakening, every soul goes through it in order to achieve Ultimate Balance, which is Ultimate Harmony, Ultimate Peace, Ultimate Awareness, Ultimate Oneness, Love Universal, and God Presence.
It should be noted that even those who express the most heterosexual energies are quietly, within the hidden depths of the unconscious or soul-self, undergoing a transitional process for the sake of balancing—at whatever spiritual level of awakening they are. When, in more everyday conversation, we use such phrases as “bringing forth more of one’s feminine or masculine side,” we are, in fact, alluding to this balancing process.
When a person has truly awakened to a higher degree of mystical spiritual awareness, all life expressions are seen as One Life—or God—expressing through human life forms the ongoing process of male and female energy balancing, which all gender expressions are processing under the Will and Power of Universal Consciousness or God. For religions of differing beliefs to suggest to their followers that God considers those living lives in a transitional state of gender process to be wrong, only demonstrates their lack of spiritually awakened awareness.
All that is, is of God—One Universal Life—and because of this, the differences between people and between transitional gender expression should be honored as another part of God’s Beingness and Will. If God does not Will it so, it will not be.
In a world of illusionary, five-sense perceptions, much may seem divided or different from oneself. In a world awakened to the Universal One Life Consciousness and Spirit that is God, all is Whole and at Peace, and in that Wholeness, the Oneness that is God’s love for all Its Creations is expressed.
The closer you are to God, the further you are from illusions that divide.
