WORD OF EL | By: gnub ipwdk | | Category: Short Story - Religous Bookmark and Share




                                         THE WORD OF EL

      I be El. I am the light of all and every. Forever is mine alone. I am the uncreated and the unformed. Long, long ago I was. A deep dark mass of non-things. I roamed and wandered for timeless eternity, yet never moved. I became the void. There existed nothing to move around in for I was all unto myself. I am all that never was, all that used to be, all that has ever been, and all that will ever be. I permeate all. I am the only, for there is none other to compare me to. My essence is everywhere for there is no other to take my place. I am the unfailing presence. I am unexplainable and incomprehensible to anything and everything that is part of me. I existed before time, for time emerged from me. My journey is never ending, expanding and ceaseless. I be El.  

      I am a part of all that exists. I am a part of all that will ever be. It has always been. Once only a vast endless sea of emptiness, now I am all things and all non-things. When the time of no time could exist no more in the dark empty infinity, time appeared. Time made all possible. With time all things can begin and end. All but El. I am everlasting, for I had no beginning and no source. When the ages and ravages of time appeared, I be as I am now. Without reason and without cause I am. As long as the dark and emptiness existed, the light and the fullness will also exist. All is one. I be all. Separated by time itself, the infinite parts of the heavens still fit together in perfect design. Ever growing, ever changing, never slowing, I continue on. I am over all, through all and in all.

     The heavens am I. My abode. The smallest grain, the largest rock. I am in all, see all, know all and tend all. Every star and every moon I sense. When the mighty circle of fire cooled and turned, I felt. Your world came and was. Ever changing but never dying, your world came and persisted, endured and changed but always survived. When the fires ceased to burn and the cold came to the barren world, the great calm came. This was the time of rest. Great peace and quiet was all the world. No water, wind, rain, fire, or life existed to spoil the long sleep of the world. Peace reined. The world slept as the ages went by. Stars and other worlds passed by, without notice or intent. When the end of the peace came, it pushed down from the sun. The glow of light filtered through to the cold dark world, with the fires of warmth to come. The warmth came again and all was bright.


     Before the world is as now, it was a place of twilight and cold, water and turmoil. The great sea ruled all. All that lived resided under the vastness of the waters. No land was there to hold back the tides. Mighty storms shook the world in those days. The surging waters flowed where they wanted and filled the world with its might. No birds flew and no beasts crawled. Only the monsters of the deep roamed the sea, and called it their own. The tempests on the waters roared with wind and rain and lightning as it roamed over the landless world of eons ago. With the upheaval of the depths came the tops of mighty mountains as they fought their way out of the waters. More and more they emerged until they halted the rush of the water and tempered the mighty storms until they no longer ruled the air. Calm came at times and light shone down between the upheavals of the storms, bringing warmth and beauty to the barren world.

     Life exists. It grows. It seeks out itself. It thrives. Life is, unlike others, a temporary state. It comes and it goes. It comes from and returns to. Time makes life and no-life possible. Nothing more, nothing less. Living things seek out other living things. They cannot exist without others like them. A living thing left alone, will wither away. Life dies. Truth lives. The breath returns to the wind, and the dust to the ground. I begin all, end all, and touch all. I be El. 

     No thing will ever remain constant again. Since that first flash of light lit up the emptiness, change can be all, forever. All changes. Some change so slowly, that they can exist for time and time after, until they finally crumble and fade away. Life has added a great illumination to the world. A world of barren rock and water. With life the world is a garden of green. A place of ultimate wonder. A place of great joy and understanding. A place of suffering and sadness. A place where the great lightness of the good and the immense weight of the evil all dwell together. A place of illusion. With all life comes the beginning and the end, the end of the beginning and the beginning of the end. As long as I have been, I have seen all things end and begin again. I have felt the heat and the cold. I have been hungry and thirsty. I have been born and I have passed on. I have known all of these things for I am part of all. Every living thing contains me, knows me, and feels me, but none can comprehend me. I be El. 


Throughout the heavens are a multitude of marvels. I know them all. Yet for all the glory in the cosmos, and all the magnificent illumination and grandeur that resides in it, life has no equal. Your world is the mightiest because of it. Trillions of lives have come and went in the long history of your world. None other like it exists. None ever will. Life is a timeless mystery. The light creates life from none. It creates life without thought or plan. Life appears without warning and disappears without notice. It appears, thrives, falters, and then drifts away with the countless other living things that have lived and disappeared over the ages. So complex and simple, all at the same time. It matters little how it became. It is.

     Since the first beast of the Earth wandered over its horizon, life has filled the world with nurturing kindness and unequaled brutality. The natural world knows no wrong. Every plant and every animal work together, never in unison, but always together. Each has ways. Each their own. Each does as they are meant to do. They know little else of their meager existence and know no other way. They take what they need and leave the rest for others.

All living things know they are alive. None of them know why. None of them know where they were before they lived. None know where they journey to. None ever will. Some, who believe they are all-knowing, and all-seeing, claim to see the light of the future, and the path of the afterlife. There is no future and no past. Only present. Only now. There can be no after-life, for there was no before-life. All living and non-living things are intermingled with themselves. All are part of every and every is part of all. I am all. I be El.

    For millions of years I have watched you toil and till, live and learn, and wander the Earth. Every living being upon this world shares with each other, a part of the light. You know this to be true. You have arrived at your destination in the world, but as yet you have no idea what it is or why it will be. You are content with the illusion you have draped around yourselves, while you ignore the ever growing shadow that creeps slowly toward your world like the beast crawling in the grass. Too many times have you ignored the truth. Like frightened sheep you run to the sound of the shepherd with the loudest voice or the sweetest feed. I leave this last word of warning to you. I be all. I be El.


     I have been with all forever. I have been with you from dawn to dusk. Dusk has come. I was with you when you cast the first stone, and when you wrote upon it long ago. I sat with you when you peered into the flames, looking for answers to mysteries you unraveled in your feeble minds. I stood by as you grew and prospered, while you killed and maimed. I was there when twice you annihilated your own kind for reasons that never were. More than once I sent word to you, so you might not repeat those mistakes of the past. Every time you received the word, it fell upon deaf ears, and was corrupted and destroyed by those who sought only power and possessions. Great men, prophets and sages, have walked among you all your days, yet you slandered them, ignored them and ended their lives. Men of renown have lived and died without notice, while you revere the masters of deceit. You give all to the deceivers simply to hear the lies and stories that come from their mouths. You idolize the leaders of fools, and the preachers of men. You bow down and worship those that other men have fashioned in their own image for their own greed and vanity. You have surrounded yourselves with a prison of your own choosing and have left the key with the leader of darkness. You have surrendered yourselves to those with loud voices and promises of all and every. Like a plague, the corruption of the good for the benefit of the evil, spreads itself across the world. Greed and envy, power and lust, money and arrogance, are the evils of those that lead you to the end of your time. These you prefer. You choose to believe lies because the truth is so plain. You live your lives through others because your own seems so worthless. You lay in a stupor and dream of far away places, while others starve and rot and scour the land for food and kindness.

     And yet the sun still rises every morning and sets every night. The waves of the sea still come ashore, and the wind still blows across the land. There is still hope. Although the teacher of righteousness has long ago passed from your midst, his words still echo across the world. The words of the prophets still sound through the valleys and deserts as they have for an eternity. Shreds of the truth may be all that remain of the wise ones of old, but it is enough. Look at yourself and ask. Is this all that I am and all that I am to be? You are more. You are part of all. All am I. I be El.


     I am the uncreated, the unborn, and the unformed. I am with all at all times, yet very few ever know me. I have no eyes but I see all. I have no touch yet I feel all. I have no head, still I know all. If you look for me you will never see me, yet I am closer to you than you are to yourself. When you are alone in the dark, it is my presence you feel. It is I who fill your dreams with substance and mystery. Some worship me, but I have no secrets to offer them. Some pray to me, but I cannot be summoned. Some glorify me but I have no glory. Some call me Lord, yet I am master of none.  I am master of none but host to all. I be El.

    Many names you have called me, and many things you have attributed to me. I have endured with you and suffered with you all along the way. The way is coming to an end. Beware the praises and prayers that flow so easily out of your hearts to the creations of men. Do your holy men ask for your money? Do your leaders trade the soothing words of the orator for the coins of corruption? Do your holy men consort with the rich and the immoral while leaving behind the poor and the helpless? Have you chosen the evil, the corrupt and the worshipers of money as the leaders of your own? All of these things have come to pass. All of these things have you done to yourselves. How many wars have been fought for the glory of your leaders? How many innocent ones have been tortured and maimed and killed in the name of your God? How many of your own kind have you denied, shunned, and cursed, because they claimed a God of a different name? All of these things have you done in the name of your God and your leaders. Evil deeds done in the name of God. The creation of man.

     One people hating another. Nation against nation. One God against another. Some live a life of luxury, as they turn away from the sight of others dying of starvation and disease. So many turning to immorality to obtain the material things of the untrue world. Others killing their own kind because they are told that it is their duty. Their duty to kill. The sin of all sin. Your chosen leaders, leading their flock of fools down the path to the end and the annihilation of all. The darkness comes. It creeps over the land and brings death and sickness to all and every. Open your eyes to the evil. Abandon the illusion of satisfaction that you have wrapped around yourself, for only without it can you see the evil and darkness that comes, and the way to the everlasting light.    


     Evil and corruption are spreading across your world. The way is being forgotten. You have taken the words of the wise and destroyed them and corrupted them, so you could prosper and accumulate the material things of the world of illusion. You make war and call it holy. The word has been given but not received. The way has been marked but the markers have been turned. The teacher of righteousness has left the path to truth behind. Once more I bring you the way and the word. Remember. Time comes without haste. All things that begin will end. The end comes. Remember the words of the great men of renown who came long before:


     "The truth is a living power for good, indestructible and invincible.
Work the truth out in your mind, and spread it among mankind, for truth alone is the savior from evil and misery. As you realize not the eternal truths, and recognize not the better way, I come to you all to guide you in the right selection between the two sides that we may thence live in accordance with truth and right."


     "Just as gold is uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of knowledge and the guidance of the truth."


    "Do not believe in something simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and speakers. Do not believe in traditions simply because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it." 


         "To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him."


     "Death is a going home. The good and wise shall suffer no harm even though the body dies."


     "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience."    


        "All those who take the sword will perish by the sword.

 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks."


      "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. The more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man."


     "Some do not follow righteous ways and resort to violence to achieve their purpose. But those who lead others through non-violent means, knowing right and wrong are the guardians of righteous ways."


    "But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.  And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him two."


     "I praise good thoughts, good words, and good deeds and those that are to be thought, spoken, and done. I do accept all good thoughts, good words, and good deeds. I do renounce all evil thoughts, evil words, and evil deeds."


      "Be good, be kind, be humane, and charitable; love your fellows; console the afflicted; pardon those who have done you wrong."


     "A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."


     "But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you."


      "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in spirit, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."


        "Trust not in wealth. It is fleeting and may be the cause of much evil and suffering. The poverty of a good man is more to be prized than the wealth of the evil man. If one has wealth, one should use it for good and not for evil."


     "There are only two forces in the world, the sword and the spirit. In the long run the sword will always be conquered by the spirit".


     "Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and hope that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, and beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people."


      "This is the sum of all true righteousness: deal with others as thou wouldst thyself be dealt by. Do nothing to thy neighbor which thou wouldst not have him do to thee hereafter".


        "One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws, but conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws".


     "The ink of a scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr. We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools".


     "The right path is abstaining from killing; abstaining from stealing; abstaining from immoral intercourse. Without stick or sword, conscientious, and full of sympathy, one should avoid and abstain from killing living beings, and be anxious for the welfare of all living beings".


          "The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly."


     "Meditation is the key for opening the doors of mysteries. In that state man abstracts himself; in that state man withdraws himself from the outside world; in that subjective mood he is immersed in the ocean of spiritual life and can unfold the secrets of things-in-themselves."


     "In this day he who seeks the Light of the Sun of Truth must free his mind from the tales of the past, must adorn his head with the crown of severance, and his temple with the drapery of virtue. Then shall he arrive at the ocean of oneness and enter the presence of singleness.

The heart must become free from the fire of superstitions, that it may receive the Light of Assurance, and that it may perceive the Glory of God."



     The way of truth and contentment is being lost. Goodness must again be the end result of the lives of all people. Good thoughts, good words, and good deeds should be the cry of the world and the writing on the wall of change. Remember the seven Laws of the Truth:


End no life. Not even your own.

Take only what is yours. Possess only what you need.

Speak only the truth, think only the truth.

Eat no meat. Eat only to live.

Cease violence. Fight no more forever.

Cast no lot. Choose no leader. Follow your own self.

Treat others as you would yourself.


     Turn away from the evils of greed, power and the lust for the afterlife. Remember the ancients of the deserts, wrapped in their rags of power and glory, brought down by the reality of death, ending their myth of immortality. All of the incantations, spells and prayers of their holy men could not grant them their last wish of everlasting life. The priests laughed secretly behind their holy robes as they collected their unjust rewards from the dead. There is more to life than death. There is the gathering of everlasting souls as they join together. The endless sea of the light of all those who have ever been and all those who will be, as they unite to become the beacon of the loved and the jewel of the cosmos from which they came. Home at last. The eternal realm of all, free from the death of evil. Evil exists only in the mind of humanity. It is born from and grows out of the disillusion and weakness of the mind and the spirit the cosmos knows no evil. Only the evil ones know the terror of their own evil hearts.   

     Look inside yourself, for there is more to you than you know. For all and every is part of El. The light of El resides in all things. The tiny unseen and unformed soul that lies deep in the spirit of all people contains the path to the truth, and the salvation of the world. For the light of the soul can join with the light of the world, and bring order and truth back to the world that has been darkened by the weight of the evils committed by its own. The evils of all people. Know thyself, for it is all you have. All else is the illusion of the material world. Seek the light of the truth and the communion with all. I be all. I be El.


     When the weight of the untruth of the world grows heavy, and the people lose the way, the terror that will be the end of all people, will start to unfold.  The material world will twist and turn upon itself. Calamity after calamity will come and after each, the people will continue to cry out to their leaders or to their gods for help, but to no avail. If more and more stray from the path of truth and righteousness, then the Earth will lose the bright light that soothes all things into harmony and contentment. Once the light is gone, it is forever, for there is no yesterday, no tomorrow, only now. Neither one hundred nor ten years at a time, but day by day the light fades. Every dead creature, every war, every lie, every murder, every act that defies the laws of the righteous thoughts of the world, will add to and hasten the fall of the world as you have made it for yourselves. Your world of material illusions. Your world of lust and greed.

    As yet the flame still burns, and hope still exists. Time is swift now, change must come. If enough turn to the truth, and live according to the word, in righteousness and enlightenment, then the end may become the beginning, and the old ways become new. All must join together and brighten the faded glow of the light of truth. Love your neighbors and your enemies for your hope is theirs. You must stand together, enemies no more. Colors and creeds, tribes and families, those who worship and those who lead, all must turn toward the inner light of the truth. Wisdom and good deeds must prevail over darkness and fear. All people of the world must unite in common purpose, to help each and every, to survive the turmoil of the changing of the times. Give to the unbelieving leaders of themselves all that is theirs, and join others together in the unity of the way of the truth and the salvation of the world. Time comes. 

     Do not set aside your differences, rather cast them into a bottomless pit, so they will rise again no more. Ignore the evil ones who cling to their possessions, their passions and their titles, for their greed will be their end. Ignore those who cling to lies and untrue beliefs, as their disappointment will be their awakening. The great voice of the soul of the world cries out in agony as the mighty world itself wastes away amid the evil and abuse it has endured for so long. The evil of the darkness, the cries of the beasts, the pain of the suffering of millions of beings, and the turning of the time, are all coming into being. The change will come, or the end will come. 


     Look again into the mirror. It is not you that you see. You see the reflection of the illusion. The dark shadow of the untruth that you have cloaked yourself in. The material world that exists because you believe it to be so. The shadows of darkness that you live in to keep away the reality of the righteousness of the absolute truth. There is no truth outside of your own soul. No man or God of man can lead you to the light of the truth. Righteousness, truth, and the light of goodness are all within yourselves.

      Deep within every person lies the gateway to the truth. Search deep inside yourself. Meditate, seek out the part of yourselves that contains the everlasting light and the truth of being. Push aside the untrue world of material things. Neglect your senses, and disregard all things around you, for you cannot remain in the illusion while you search for the light of the truth. The journey within is a long one. Through dark and light, mist and clear, visions and blackness, many things appear and fade as you journey toward the truth. Inside the dimensions of your own being is the essence of your self. The self is all you possess. Find yourself and you will find all. I be all. I be El. 

     Seek out the spirit that leads to the essence of all that you once were, before the illusion of life overtook you, and all that you are destined to become. Somewhere inside of you is the light of the soul. The spirit, that guides each of us toward the light, waits. It lies on the very edge of existence, and cannot be comprehended, only felt but never understood. Journey as far as you dare into your self, for it is unending and unwavering. Once you discover the truth of your self, nothing will be as it was before. You will see the evil in the world, evil you could not realize before. The evil of the material world. You will see the suffering, the death, and the despair that you turned your eyes away from in the past. No longer will you be able to shut yourself up inside your houses and your temples and ignore the suffering of the world. No longer will you be able to lie to yourself, and say it is no concern of yours. All of these things and more will come from the light of the truth.

     Only the realization of the eternal truth can halt the dark cloud of destruction that soon will creep across the world.  Only the abandonment of the evils of the material world can bring about the renewal of the real world. Righteousness must prevail, and evil must end. There are only two ways, those of the light and those of the darkness. The good and the evil.


     I have known you for all of your time, and some have known me as well. Twice before you have allowed your world to be destroyed. Thousands of years ago, two times before, you turned your eyes away from the truth and waited as evil overcame and destroyed the world as it was before. The end comes. You know that it comes, for the signs are scattered across the world. The change must come. The poor, the meek, the oppressed, the sick, the good of heart, and all who can must find the truth and join together as one to push back against the evil that resides in the minds of the chosen ones. Those who chose themselves over others, to gain in power and wealth. Take no more than you need and use no more than you must. Heed the seven Laws of the Truth. Ignore no more the faces of evil that you see every day. Point them out to others so they too can know their names. Right what is wrong, and do what is right.

     It is as it was so long ago. I have waited and watched before as you took no part in the path to the truth. The end comes. You see it. You know it. It comes, yet you ignore it thinking that your leaders and prayers will protect you. And yet they are powerless against their own creations, against the evil that they have brought forth from their hearts. Twice before you allowed it to be so, and undoubtedly you will allow it to be so again. For as your leaders argue and acquire, and your holy men pray and enrich themselves, the darkness comes, slowly, unabated, and feeding off the evils of the people.

      If the darkness overtakes the world, and the black clouds gather in great numbers, then the illumination of the path to the truth will forever be lost, even to those who still seek it. The great flames of the sun will torch the world with fire, and the poison mist of the dead will blow across the land, bringing an end to everything in its path. The rumblings of the world will never cease, and the tides will rise and fall, pouring over the mountains and under the sands. Mighty waves of the sea will wash into lands that have never known water. All things and non-things will be erased from the Earth, never being again and never having been. All life will end, and all things made by man will cease to exist. The land will burn and freeze, over and over, cooled by freezing winds and burned by the fiery fingers of the sun. The ground will open and swallow everything above it. The world will again purge itself of those who seek to destroy it. Until that time I will be with you. To those who seek me, they shall find. All things will be together again, for I be all. I be El.
