Works of Rest – 2

The opposite of Rest or Faith is stress from a works based model or the desire for “more” than the Beloved state.

This is the reason for “the original sin” – the story of “the fall” is the story of man wanting “more” than Love.

Love whispers for us to Be, more screams at us to Do – in this we see the very nature of The Divine, and The Divine plan of Grace.

The story of “the fall” is the story of us, our wants and our Need – yes singular – Need because All we Need is Perfect Love. Resting in the idea or understanding of The Divine Being Perfect Love and That Love Being beyond human comprehension this Is Abundant Life. On the other hand what kills our Resting are our wants for “more” – “more” always looks good on the outside but biting into it (no pun intended) will always lead to the death of being here now resting in Perfect Love.

Again this series is about shining a light on “Works of Rest” as opposed to works of mans desire, one of which is religion. Resting or “Faithing” in our Being is a growing process of understanding “The Gift” and it’s value.

“but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” … Genesis 2:17

“But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” … Genesis 3:4-5
