“We have a tendency to fragment, then be concerned about the truth of just a little part of the whole,” Devorah said to Malachizer the High Priest.
He frowned. “How else are we to know anything? After all, we do not eat the whole lamb at once, we eat it one mouthful at a time.” The priest smiled, proud of himself.
Devorah nodded indulgently. “We are not talking about eating, Malachizer, we are talking about knowing God. Focusing on a part, the Ten Commandments for example, is but a way of avoiding, or looking away from the whole, to what we think we might be better able to comprehend. A better and far more helpful way to think of God is this: we do not understand the power It is, either in part or in whole.” Malachizer sputtered. “We do not understand because we constantly fragment It, continually cutting the great mystery that It is down to our size, the size of our egos. Yet are we one with It and It works through us, even tho we don’t comprehend how; therefore our understanding cannot be necessary. But faith….”
“Faith is important, but not enough!” Malachizer said.
“I agree,” Devorah responded. “We have no choice but to use all aspects of being human – spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. But how can faith in reality be ours while we are bent on making it unreal, denying Wholeness and fragmenting It? And are you really safer in maintaining the reality of illusions than you would be in joyously accepting the truth for what It is, and giving thanks for It? Honor the truth that has been given, and be glad you do not understand it.
