The flesh got conscious when “quickening spirit” or a particle of conscious poured into it, without this quickening, flesh is just a bundle of skin which is nothing except dirt. But it has known its vulnerability, therefore it never let the heart to rule over the body, it wants only brain/carnal mind/ childish mind/worldly mindset control over the whole body.
In the beginning, it was not so, therefore old civilizations were so advanced in spirituality because their body ruled by the spirit or a particle of great conscious which directly link with Creator but as time passed by, the flesh started realizing its limitations so it started passing its conscious through body as spirit does, it started imitating functioning style, it has successful in doing so but it can not replace the very electricity or charge or Breath of Life that has been keeping it alive although it has tried its best to create something with similar functionality, therefore, we have a story of Frankenstein a person with no Soul who was created from the dead pieces of buried people.
Nowadays, Carnality ( worldly or non-spiritual) has spread as much that people don’t even believe they have a spirit inside their cocoon which is keeping them alive, moreover, they also deny that they are Spiritual beings instead they have accepted that they are Fleshy beings and belong here. Now you can imagine, how vast the lie has spread and changed the perception of people. But there are still some awaken people who can look beyond this lie, the veil of flesh and are realising the TRUTH and offering help to others so that those who are living in darkness can see the light and come out of hell and start living in Heaven.
When people start realising their real identity, they often begin it by imitating others or copy others ways but never try to look for their own paths. When they are asked, why do they do it? the majority of folks reply, others are doing so they follow them or they all reply, in the same way, how would they suppose to know their way? I must tell you, that’s the beauty of Spirituality, it has no way, there is no way, the courses are for flesh/carnal but for Spirituality there is no way, if there would be, flesh would have found it and started imitating it, this is the only thing which has been keeping the flesh away from being Spirit because it does not understand, how does it happen?, it’s beyond the qualification of flesh or we may say, beyond its limits.
Just free from each kind of weight such as hate, envy, pride, knowledge etc, these all things are of flesh, these are understood by Sense although Spirit has no sense yet it understands everything, your tiny mind might raise the question, how does it possible, It just does, you have to believe it.
The first step toward spirituality is to deny that you know something when you go on the pathless path, you must deny you don’t know anything, just listen don’t say anything. If you say, means you think you figure it out or trying to do so but if you have known something then you must be calm instead that knowledge robbed you and left you to suffer. So, now you must accept, you don’t know anything, knowing nothing helps a person to have strong faith than those who think they know.
When an individual starts accepting things rather than questioning, he starts realising, the simplicity of Spirituality, and imposed complex ways of the flesh. For example, in flesh ways, there is no solid reason given to forgive your enemy and pray for him, it just seems nonsense to people but in a spiritual way, there is an answer which is to forgive others or pray for others is doing for yourself. As in the beginning of this post I wrote, A particle of Great conscious means there are other particles, we are scattered into pieces in this world when we join together we become strong and achieve the unlimited.
War always begins with the desires of the flesh, Spirit never ignites war, it always starts with greed or envy, which are the characteristics of flesh not of Spirit. So, for those who are seeking ways to be free, you must accept, you don’t know anything, deny yourself and follow Christ ( a great Spirit/A new Mindset/Holy Ghost).
