Chapter 6: Trusting God
An Excerpt from You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey of Self-Awareness, Peace of Mind and Joy by James Blanchard Cisneros.
Do you believe God loves the person who says four Hail Mary’s a day more than the person who says two? Do you think God loves the saint more than the sinner? If a Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Catholic and a Jew stood in front of God, who would you say He loves most? These three questions are really just one question, and it is this: Have you actually convinced yourself that God plays favorites?
Only the ego can create actual wars out of a children’s game of “Daddy Loves Me Best.” From this simple ego belief comes one of the greatest mass illusions in the history of man. And you need not have killed in His name to participate in this illusion. Anytime you put yourself above a brother or sister, or put down a brother or sister, anytime you judge a brother or sister, you participate in this illusion. God has no more or no less love for all of His creations. Regardless of their participation in illusions, God loves all, equally, and always.
Only in the delusional mind can there exist levels of illusions. In the world of illusions, there are many steps you can take. All directions, regardless of their outward manifestations, lead to truth. There is not, and this I repeat with absolute respect and love, there is not, nor will you ever take, a step back on your journey. My friend, you have been taught that you can take two steps forward and one step back, and that you can regress from your path. In the world of illusions this is true, but in the world of truth this is an illusion. My friend, it is in part a result of this learned belief that you sometimes judge yourself, your brother, your sister and God. My friend, every single step you take regardless of the number or outward manifestation is a step toward knowledge and truth. Regardless of the time it takes and distance you choose to travel, all roads lead to truth. Regardless of where you are on your journey, be it on the hills of the Himalayas, or inside prison walls, all journeys can end with the simple recognition that there is nowhere else you need to go. Any and all journeys end with the recognition that you need not take one more step. And you will not curse the journey for having you search for so long, but you will bless it, for you will know that it is because of it that you are now home.
