The parable of the ship Part TWO
In part one we looked at the internal synergy we need to make to complete the crew. The internal synergy basically gets the owner (you) the captain (the ego) and the ship and crew (the body) working together as a single unit. A ship without this working internal synergy can never go anywhere! The crew will be on strike, the captain will want to go only where he wants to go and the owners will be left frustrated sitting in port!
So let’s assume that you have the internal synergy going and you tell the captain that you want to go to Tahiti. He will immediately start planning the trip, ordering his crew men to get the supplies for the trip, working out a route and so forth. Within a short while you are on your way to Tahiti and eventually you will reach it!
But today let’s look at the overall lifetime of the ship. Every man made thing has a time usage factor. As soon as the sea was launched into the sea it started being attcked by the salt water. The average cruiser ship has a life span of, say, 80 years. After that it is too old and rusty to be safe at sea. But let’s say out ship is at sea and hits a big storm and starts sinking! What happens to the components? The ship and crew will sink! The captain always goes down with his ship! But the owner simply goes to the back of the ship to the helipad and gets into his helicopter and fkies away And that is a perfect description of every one’s death. The captain and the ship are destroyed but you – the owner – are not!
The ship and the captain are temporary elements meant for use on this earth. You, – the owner, the soul – are a permanent (eternal) thing meant to live forever.
During your cruising you are meant to work from your executive cabin to establish contact with other owners and to establish a connection to the source of Love – the owner of the whole fleet! Because whilst you own your own ship the source of love is in command of all the ships on earth! And it is to these headquarters that you’ll fly when your ship goes down!
And that is how death occurs. You’ll be travelling along on a beautiful day and the sea opens up and swallows your ship! You are automatically transported to your helicopter and are in the air looking down at your sinking ship,before you are even consciously aware that your ship is sinking!
Looking down at your ship you will be grateful to it for carrying you around the world be not in the least sad to to leave it! For you have a higher destination!
What was your purpose on being on the ship? To get as close to the source of love as possible. In this case we will name that source of love Tahiti. How close did you get to Tahiti! Did you actually arrive there? or are you still in port in England arguing with the captain and the crew to get going? Where ever the ship sinks that will be your “closeness” or “farness” from the source of Love (God).
In 80 years you could have easily reached Tahiti. Or you could have reached Suez. Or you could still be in Port in England. Wherever your ship goes down that represent how far away you are from God in the next world! And you will be asked why you are where you are and have to answer that simple question.
And if you are in port you will be able to see that you wasted your life!HOW? By not moving towards the source of Love. Know that we have free will for a reason. In this world we are hear form 70 -90 years on average. In those few short years (a twinkling of the eyelid) we can move to Tahiti or stay in port – the choice is ours!
But that choice ends at the point of death! In this world we have free will but none of the other worlds (mineral, vegetable, animal and the next world) don’t! So what we could have achieved in 80 years here on earth may take up to a million years to achieve in the next world – because we are dependent on the mercy of God to advance in the next world! And the time difference between what we could have achieved here on earth and what time it will take us to achieve it in the next world is the “Hell” that the messengers talk about!
This “hell” is not imposed on us by anyone except ourselves. It is the outpouring of regret at our own stupidity for not listening to the many calls that happen everyday to bring us closer to the source! We regret not listening to these calls (and they are plain as the noses on our faces with hindsight!) and that feeling is the hell we must suffer. Hell is the realisation that we had a purpose here on earth and our lack of recognition and action on that purpose!
So what is our purpose here on earth. When the ship is in the ship yard and being built it’s purpose is to float. Once it is floating (born) it’s purpose is to combine with the captain, come under his orders. This usually takes place at the age of 8.
Once the captain and crew are settled in the owner is piped aboard and the captain comes under the orders of the owners. This happens at the age of 15 and older, depending on if the captain will let us aboard or if we even know we are the owner and not just one of the crew under the captain!
Our job as owners is not to work the lines or paint the ship, not to plot the course but to work out plans for arrival at Tahiti. What are we going to do when we get there?
So looking overall our(the owners) first “task” in life is to connect with the source of love. Once we have done this our task is two fold –
(1) to help create a general divine civilisation and
(2) to help create a specific divine civilisation.
We can achieve number one by using our generalised abilities. For example we (mostly) all have the ability to reproduce here on earth. If we do this and raise good children who are spiritually balanced (not religious) then we have achieved a generalised divine civilisation because the will go on to raise good children of their own!
But to achieve our specific divene civilisation task we have to connect to LOVE and seek out our own talents and abilities and develop these (this is called our BE-ingness!) Once we have recognised and developed these we will be given a specific thing to achieve here on earth that only we can do! If we do this then we achieve the state of heaven here on earth!
From the ship parable point of view we could be in the pacific when we hear a distress call from another ship. According to sea tradition it is the duty of all ships to come to the aid of any ships in distress. But the captain or the owner could over-ride that code and just continue on. This distress code could be our specific divine task on earth!
So the journey is important too, not just the destination!
The crewman oversees his part of the ship – perhaps he is a cook who feeds the crew. The captain oversees the ship, but the owner has to oversee a much larger area of concern – perhaps a whole ocean! The source of Love – the owner of the fleet – overseas the world world! Once we get this order in our minds (sould) we can do what we were made to do – to help create a divine civilisation, to leave this world a better [lace when we leave it than it was when we joined it!!
Why a divine civilisation. Isn’t it enough to create a human civilisation? No, because human civilisations can only last 60 year of average whilst divine civilisations can last for up to 1,000 years! So is our part in life going to be human (that ends when we die) or divine (that continues on after we die?) I know which one I want to achieve and it is not the former one!
In part three we will look at what the difference is between spiritual and religious, and the difference between human and divine civilisations – and how to recognise the qualities that create divine civilisation.
May Love, Health, Happiness, Peace, Success and Prosperity BE yours,
