Such a curious idea did Jesus have. That as we are born of the force of life we are of the force of life within our flesh. But that we can live without awareness of this and imagine that we are of Flesh not soul.
In studying, listening, editing, compiling the work of Leo Tolstoy, becoming immersed in his understanding of the teaching of Jesus, it is almost hard to imagine any other way of being. And then being in our sick culture it is hard to imagine what Tolstoy and Jesus were speaking to us.
How incomprehensible for James to Simply make the purpose of his life to inhabit the world that Jesus and Tolstoy speak to us of. And how may be the most important thing that anyone can do. No one living there would be destroying the planet. No one living there would be destroying the life of others.
That seems fairly worthwhile, seeing if one can be an example of that way of being.
But not to suggest that anything's going to be saved of any magnitude. It is not.
And yet if to the soul the most magnificent thing is soul, then increasing the chance of just one other Soul being saved is the joyful thing to do.
