Oft-times people don’t need to be preached at on what to do – they need a living example they can copy!

Oft-times people don’t need to be at preached at on what to do, what they actually need is  a living example of what to do, who they can copy and  learn from! Such a living example is called an exemplar. There are many exemplars both dead and living, but they mostly remain hidden/invisible to us until we ask for help from the universe/God/Love. Once we ask they appear. As exemplified in the old statement, “When the student is ready, the master will appear!”

One such exemplar was a man called Abu’l Baha. He was known to the author Kahlil Gibran, who wrote a book about him in the 1920s called The Prophet. This became another best seller in the 1980s. Originally the book had a line drawing of Abdu’l Baha in it, but when the author died his family (who were catholics) made the publisher remove it from the book.

Whilst the picture above is not the original one in the prophet it is of Abu’l Baha and by  Kahlil Gibran. Abu’l Baha was knighted by the British, because before world war one he saw the clouds of war on the horizon, built many granaries and “taxed” the local farmers 50% of their crops for three abundant years. The abundant years were followed by years of hardship and he used the stored grain to feed the people. This is why he was knighted, and known to the British as Sir Abu’l Baha, because he saved many from starvation. This is  why he was an exemplar. And He knew he was an exemplar too. Which is why he had the quote, “Be like Me, follow Me, do as I do!” 

Anyone could become an exemplar, but very few do, because it takes a high motivation rate to become one. But even so there are a few in the world today. Ask and they will be revealed to you! To think that a loving God leaves us alone, unanswered, unguided, without examples of how to BE is a stupid idea, but one that is prevalent in many religions. I was asked to leave the Baha’i faith by God for two reasons (1) because they don’t allow masters  and (2) because of my mission [I cannot afford to be seen to belong to any religion for it will feed the fires of prejudice in many groups, “He can’t be right because he belongs to THAT religion!”]

I actually saw an example of this behaviour many years ago in Pahiatua. I had a house-trucking friend called Murray, who used to go to the Anglican church (which was full of old ladies). He came to me one day and asked if I knew the solution to a problem that the ladies were having, I pulled out a book called the Hidden Words and went straight to a passage which turned out to be the answer they was looking for. I loaned him the book and he took it to the church meeting the next Sunday night. He stood up and said, “I believe I have found the answer to your problem!” And then he read out the passage. “Yes. Yes. Yes! That is just the answer we were looking for! Where did you get it from?” they said. To which he replied. “From the Hidden Words” At which they threw up their hands and bleated, “No, no, no! that must be wrong, because Jesus didn’t say it!” And they wonder why Jesus wept!

Apparently I am one of only six people in the world. I don’t know who the other five are yet, but I am starting to suspect they are all exemplars! I an starting to suspect that I am an exemplar too! 

Kindest regards,

About reverendjiam

Namaste I am a master metaphysician , an artist and a lover of life and people. I was given a new organisation - the Wholistic Peace and Prosperity Network - in an epiphany in 1992. I have spent all the time since then struggling to get it started. It was started three years ago and now has 3 members. This year will see us expand to 100 members and then we'll be launched! in the future it will spread world wide and even to our colonies in space! Since writing this I have been promoted to the level of Peacemaker. Apparently there are only seven in this class in the world at the moment. I was promoted when Nelson Mandela died and am amongst greats like John Lennon, Gandhi and The Dalai Lama. Each of us have our own particular task. Mine is to teach Peace (the state of Poor) and Prosperity (the state of Abundance), to lift people up above the negative material state into a state of heavenly BEingness, called Wealth. J'iam
