“Slavery to tradition produces stability and co-operation by sentimentally linking the past with the present, but it likewise stifles initiative and enslaves the creative powers of the personality.” [UB, 66 :6.2]
Thought Adjuster: “In your world, traditions and handed-down belief systems have morphed into handicaps that impair the full expression of human personalities, depriving them of the lifegiving oxygen injected by innovative initiatives.
Due to the unstoppable evolutionary process of planetary life, traditions require regular facelifts to keep in step with the cultural advances. The dissemination of information would be seriously impaired if you still used chalks and slates, stubbornly refusing to embrace the benefits provided by the advent of the digital age.
Jesus stressed that, because the truth is alive, it follows a growth curve to keep enlightening human minds. The individual level of open-mindedness or the self-imposed stagnation dictated by closed-mindedness determines in which spiritual age you operate: the dark age of fear, guilt, and shame or the age of enlightenment.
One can break down modern-day traditions into routines, customs, fashions, and habits — two-edged swords. Through self-discipline and repetitions, toxic addictions can be traded for healthier lifestyles, thus enhancing the quality of life. On the other hand, those who refuse to venture off the beaten track turn it into a place of confinement where they surrender their God-given freedom of choice without giving it a second thought.
Planetary spiritual advancements occurred in leaps, bounds, and rebounds leading from a state of lawlessness to a broader revelation of the Father’s way. The seven initial prohibitions given to humankind over 500,000 years ago went missing for ages due to the tragic ripple effects of the Lucifer rebellion. Moses, who lived from 1530 to 1410 BC, reframed them in an enlarged second edition in the form of ten stern commandments necessary to tame unruly human minds.
Jesus reduced all these don’ts to the single do of the Golden Rule — trading fear-inducing deterrents for a positive enticement.
How do you lead your spiritual life? Are you operating under the tutelage of the liberating truth that prompts you to do the right things through joyful personal initiatives, or do you merely refrain from doing the wrong ones? Answer for yourself.”
