DIVINITY, DIVINE WILL, DIVINE PLAN, DIVINE GUIDANCE
People of nearly all religions have the tendency to humanize God and project God as having a specific will, plan and guidance for each human being. But God as Immanence and Transcendence can impossible act as a Dualistic Super Being. Divine Will is the revealing of Divine Perfection; Divine Plan is Divine Perfection expressed by us as co- creators towards certain goals, which we have chosen based on our free will; Divine Guidance are the Ideals which we have revealed to ourselves, while striving for a certain demonstration. There is no choosing in Divine Mind, since in eternity all choices ARE.
God is Omnipotence, Omnipresence and Omniscience. God is the unchangeable Principle, Beingness, which is the source of all. In the Divine Perfection we discern Love, Justice, Wisdom, Harmony etc. We should have to realize someday in some incarnation that Divinity is present everywhere, also in our body and mind. We have just to do what Jesus did, to reveal God consciousness.
We see as personality within Divine Perfection, of which we are its offspring, Divine Will. But Divine Will is nothing else then Divine Perfection appearing to be moving our unreal nature -personality- in a certain direction, but on our own request. In reality, while You and I have talked to God as alienated to our nature while “requesting”, we were rather allowing in a certain degree the stream of Divinity. say. Yes, we are moved by the totality of our own actions and our own interactions within our Divine domain. Paul by the degree of wisdom he could reveal to himself in his time, said in Ephesians 1:4 “For he chose (eklegomai) us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight”. But God doesn’t choose. God is not a Doer, God didn’t create nothing, all emanated out of God and had the Divine perfection (read: John 1:1-5).
Ephesians 1:5 “In love he predestined (proorizō) us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure (eudokia) and will (thelēma)” When we talk about Divine plan, we are not talking about predestination. The soul personality itself determines in each incarnation to immerse itself in Divine consciousness or not. So, Divine Plan is our complexity of choices that we as personality have while working out the revealing of our perfection. If we made errors as personality, we can always make them right through going to a higher level of action. The only predestination is that we have to realize someday as Jesus and other Masters said, that we are “image and likeness” of God.
Divine guidance is not an exterior force imposed upon us. Divine Guidance is the revealing of our Real Nature/Divine Nature to ourselves, which results in a fulfilling of its intrinsic pattern. So, Divine Guidance is not a process of God rewarding us for obeying God, but it’s a process of our acceptance of Divinity in our life. This results always in a greater discernment about the road ahead.
