God's Plan for Mankind - filtered and incomplete
If people only understood this, then there would not be a fight over Evolution vs Christianity. They both come from the same place! The previous models - the ones before Adam - whose remains we keep finding, were just forms that didn't evolve to awareness.
Each time, the one who made us improves the model. And I totally believe that you are right. If this model doesn't evolve, we will be wiped out and a new one will be tried. The bible all but says this in Revelations. But that chapter is so bizarrely written that only those with *eyes to see and ears to hear* understand it.
I do believe that there are souls who will be invited to experience the next model and work on its evolution. These souls include the great teachers of our current model, and others who understand and are giving their very lives to further this cause. I hope I will be one of them.
You are mostly right. Your belief doesn't matter though. Remember nothing is lost. No souls will be left behind even should they choose not to evolve. We are all God essence. Any exclusivity implies ego. There is no such thing as special souls. All souls are from the One. Every soul has it's part to play in the symphony of Life.
There are souls that are more evolved than others. There are those that reside in higher levels of heaven that help the rest of us evolve. And there are souls that are older. An older soul does not mean a more evolved soul. Your evolvement depends on how you spend your time on earth. So, I agree that every soul has it's part to play, but, it is also every souls goal to evolve, to make it all the way back to the One. I certainly don't want to be at ground zero when they start over.
Do you know the levels of heaven about which you speak, or is it just a belief. The exclusivity I was speaking about wasn't about exclusivity of souls, but exclusivity of your mind. You are making the formless a form with your mind. You are concerned with levels of heaven and social levels of souls. Is that so? If we are all energy, then wouldn't Buddha consciousness have one frequency or energy level. It's only on this plane that it's frequency changes due to interaction with conditioned consciousness (the mind and pain body). But the last sentence could be construed as a belief, except I have felt my pain body and I have felt my Being or soul briefly awaken. Home or Heaven is whole and perfect as is God. It's only in this Universe that we perceive evolution taking place. Should we be concerned about what home looks like when we are living and playing in this Universe? Shouldn't we just be concerned with the Now because that is where freedom lies, choice lies, love lies? This planet is our home NOW, our playground Now, our Heaven Now. Isn't this Universe the Heaven of which you speak? After all, it comes from the One. This Universe is still part of the One. Souls exist in different energy levels and social levels here. Everything is sacred here as well as at our other "Heaven". It's just that things are constantly changing here. Thank you. I knew on an intellectual level that everything around us is sacred, but now I know it spiritually thanks to this discussion.
I know the levels of heaven, I have experienced them. The teacher I study with teaches that there are levels of heaven, and he has shown some of them to me. But I can only go up to a certain level unless specifically invited to go higher. I can go down any level I want to. It is my job to help those at levels lower than the one I am on. And it is the job of those on levels above me to help me and those on my level or lower.
You are correct about only being able to evolve here. When you are in heaven you don't evolve. You get training that will help you evolve when you come back to earth. But you have to do the evolving while here.
I think we are all part of the One. The One separated parts of itself and flung them to the winds. The One put all these enticements out there to see which parts could ignore them and come back all the way. Ignoring, or working around, some of the enticements will get you part of the way back. It may take you several lifetimes to make that small step. While you are in heaven you are in school to learn how to come back further - or graduate to the next class so to speak. But you have to come to earth to apply it - back in the middle of all these distractions.
Am I concerned with levels? You betcha! Am I concerned with more than just Now? Definitely. When one expands awareness, they are able to see some of the past, the now, and some of the future. Why be limited to just the Now? (I could go on and on, but I really must get to work!)
