A Message from Indonesia
Greetings from the One Infinite Creator, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
May peace be always upon us,
We all used to be one with the One Infinite Creator, which means we all enjoyed an infinite degree of everything. No one felt inferior nor superior, and there was no confusion because we had no limitations.
How many entities did the Infinite Creator make? Of course, it is an infinite number, but we always felt ourselves as One, and never in separation from the One. We saw the One Infinite Creator as Ar-Rahman (Arabic; literally, "The Gracious, Who shows mercy freely to all creation without regard to effort"), always giving with unconditional love, seeing only one face because we were infinite as the Creator. We received everything in an infinite degree without doing anything.
So why are we now here in this finite world, this confusing reality? Although the universe is as infinite, it is still seen by many to be finite, as it depends on how we see it. We are all here to learn and experience the opposite of infinity -- what is limitation, what is confusion.
And who instructed us to learn all this? We ourselves and the One Infinite Creator taught us, because we were One in the beginning. Our thoughts were His thoughts, His thoughts were ours, there was no separation.
But I think the initiator of this experience came from our side, as we wanted to give Him something in return as a token of our unconditional love to Him. In other words, it is of our own free will that we all have veiled our most infinite abilities. But in separation, we found ourselves lacking in the forms of beauty, powerful mind, great strength, unconditional love and so forth.
We decided to evolve from nothingness and gradually move to higher consciousness, to at last become one again with the One Infinite Creator. The added value is in the many experiences we encountered along the way.
In other words, everyone is indeed successful in his or her mission, because everyone experiences superiority, inferiority and confusion in some form. Put another way, it is the experience of separation itself that is the added value, something that never been experienced before. And these experiences will be shared by all, because ALL IS ONE.
With this knowledge, I believe the End Time is near, very near. Let us celebrate this end time with happiness, joy and especially in peace, because in Creation, everyone wins and no one can lose.
Forgive ourselves, forgive others, and try to remember our original thoughts -- we may alway love each other, we are infinite, and we are One.
