Epilogue to living love

Written by 

EPILOGUE

This third volume of living love ends the trilogy of writing on the nature of love; love is union and union is God. The three volumes are over fifteen hundred pages long. They will eventually be republished in one volume as the main source on the metaphysics Ozodi Osuji gave to the world.

The book(s) really did not say anything new for what is between its covers can be found in other books on metaphysics and religion.

The only difference is that it is written in simple prose, not poetry and or parables, as other religions' so-called holy books are written in. The reader of Living love, even if he is twelve years old, will be able to understand it without needing interpreters to tell him what the book is saying.

It is when other people interpret the so-called words of God, which are the words of our real self, that different interpretations ensue and breed confusion.

In this particular metaphysics, the perennial philosophy of mankind and their source, God, is written in clear and simple language. There is no obfuscation.

The truth should be self-evident and should not need any one else to explain it to one. The beauty of science is that it is presented in such a manner that any school boy can verify what it says.

For example, water is composed of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. This can be demonstrated in a laboratory by heating water and seeing the gases of hydrogen and oxygen separate and the hydrogen volume would be two parts and oxygen one part.

Further, the atoms in water can be heated and separated into electrons, protons and neutrons. With sufficient heat, such as existed during the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago, the particles could be broken to quarks and quarks broken down to photons.

Thus, we can demonstrate that all atoms, and since matter is composed of atoms, hence all matter, the physical universe, was made from light. There is no argument here.

Where science ends is explaining the origin of the light that emerged and got hot to form our physical universe.  Science has integrity and, as such, does not talk about what it cannot prove as true. Science cannot talk about the origin of the light that got the universe going. To do so is to go beyond science and get into Meta-Science, metaphysics.

Metaphysics goes beyond science and the physical universe.  Metaphysics is the realm of religion. In the three volumes on living love we explicated the nature of what lies beyond physics.

The explication was based on the experiences of Ozodi Osuji. Whereas all children of God in eternity are the same and coequal but in the temporal universe they are at different levels of evolution. Upon birth, Ozodi was seen by his Igbo people as a Dibia (teacher of spiritual matters) and the high priest of their God of light (knowledge) Amadioha (his kindred, Umuamadioha always produce the high priest of Amadioha). He showed amazing interests in spiritual matters, philosophy and psychology. His nature and studies enabled him to put together the ideas in Living love.

The problem is that most people in space and time have not had the experiences on which his metaphysics is based. In which case, they should try to verify them before they accept the thesis of the book that human beings came from spiritual light.

The book is not asking the reader to believe in anything; belief leads to superstition; a person should only accept what seems true and that he can verify to his satisfaction. Other people's experiences, religious or any other kind, as far as the individual is concerned are anecdotal until he can verify them. Only what the individual has verified should be accepted into his mind and allowed to influence his thinking and behavior.

The book is not meant to be the end of seeking to know about human origins and human future but as a beginning. After reading it the reader should thereafter struggle to verify its thesis and to the extent that he does so try to teach the eternal gospel that all of us are one in God and teach it in his own language.

The truth is one but the way it is taught is different. Each teacher of the truth presents the eternal truth in language that some people can understand. None of these teachers really says anything new.

So, go forth and try to experience the truth that we are in unified spirit oneself with one mind, one self with infinite selves in it, one mind with infinite units of mind in it.

We are analogically like light; light is both wave and particles. Light can behave as wave and also behave as particles; it behaves as the one you want it to behave for you. Sometimes we behave as wave of light (unified) and sometimes as particles of light (separated). Whole and parts are one.

On earth, non-duality and duality is the struggle of our existence. Prove everything to yourself before you accept it. However, whatever you do remember that you must love you and all people for all people share one-self with you.

In loving all people you love your whole self. In loving your whole self you know peace and joy. Our nature in unified spirit state is peaceful and joyful but becomes conflicted when we divide and separate from each other. We must return to the state of union, our home in spirit.

The children of God desired separation from him and from each other and while still remaining in God's unified state now believe that they are separated from each other and live in a world that seems separated; they see space and time between them; they live in bodies and bodies give them a sense that they are separated from each other.

Space, time and matter and body are agents of making separation seem real; they are illusions; the idea of separation is an illusion for no power can split the unified will of God that he and his sons are one.

In eternity the children of God remain as he created them, unified with him and not separated from him or from each other. Somehow they used their God mind to invent a physical universe of separation. God's mind is so powerful that his children can use it to do whatever they want to do. They have used it to miss-create infinite universes and experience them. They always return to their state of unity, where they always are and in it dream that they are separated from each other.

In our extant world people need a philosophy and religion that gives them a sense of unity with one another. Left alone each particular region of the world develops a particularistic view of reality and lives it; their reality may be different from other people's particularistic views of reality. Thus, we have particularistic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Gnosticism, African religions, each appealing to people in different parts of the world.

In our age people from different parts of the world have come together and live in the same cities. Their past particularistic religions serve as divisive mechanisms for them. Now they need a unifying religion.

The idea of cultural relativism sees all cultures and religions as equally good and therefore tolerates all of them.

Multiculturalism wants to create an environment where all cultures live and practice their different cultures and religions. This is impractical philosophy propagated by the ego.

The ego celebrates differences and inequality.  That approach to living leads to social conflict and wars, which the ego also celebrates.

If you want people to live in peace you have to give them a unifying culture. Science triumphed as the best methodological approach to physical phenomena because it gives people all over the world a universal approach to physical reality. The scientific method is used in Asia, Europe and Africa and the Americas.

Now, we need a universalistic approach to spiritual matters. Living love provides a universalistic paradigm of reality.

People need to feel unified while in the illusion that they are separated from each other.  Living love provides people a unifying metaphysical culture.

Live in light, love, peace and joy.
