In the physical realm agreements are made on a piece of paper. There are other types of agreements that are not written on a piece of paper, instead they are written on our heart and because of this they are binding to our being.
In the physical realm, we take our agreements very seriously. It used to be that an agreement was reached verbally, and the verbal agreement was as valid as the one written on paper. By honoring a verbal agreement, we took responsibility for the words we spoke and even if, in the end, it was not in the best interest of one party to carry out his/her end of the agreement, once the words were spoken they were binding. Our words were backed up by the moral fiber of our character, and to break a verbal agreement was a violation of the character of the person making the agreement. We have become less and less bound by verbal agreements. It has gotten so that when we enter into agreements with anyone every i must be dotted and every t must be crossed, especially if we do not know the other person or they do not know what kind of moral fiber we are made out of. With all of this untrust going on, it is difficult to know where anyone’s truth lies, and so we sink deeper into a valley of doubt and fear that we did not dot every i and cross every t and thereby leave ourselves open to an experience that is not necessarily to our benefit. If the truth be known, it is impossible to find every loop hole. For every new thing mandated to prevent this from happening, a new way is found to cheat or deprive someone of what they have strived for all of their life. There are many people in the world that still carry the idea that their word is their bond. But society dictates that we not be taken at our word, so instead we write our agreements on paper so that if there is any question, the question hopefully is answered in the terms of the agreement that is on the paper. The agreement then becomes a separate thing from us and we allow a piece of paper to decide what the terms of the agreement are. There is no responsibility on our part, except to follow the terms that are written on the paper. If there is a conflict regarding the paper agreement, lawyers are sought after and judgment is carried out in the court system. This takes the responsibility off of the two parties that made the agreement and places the problem into the hands of people who have no investment in the agreement at all. This is not good or bad, except for the fact that the “heart” of the agreement was never even evaluated before, during or after the contract had ended. Spiritual agreements do not follow this way of reasoning because spiritual agreements are not written on a piece of paper, they are written on our heart. It seems that paper agreements are legal and binding while the ones we speak with our mouth do not have the same intensity. Is this possible? God reads the heart. How many times have we heard this statement? If we decide that we no longer wish to be in an agreement with the one we made in our heart, can we then break that agreement without paying a penalty? While it is entirely possible to enter into an agreement without our heart involved, once we involve our heart, we have asked Heaven to enter into our agreement. When we try to “get out” of the agreement, it may appear from a physical standpoint we have succeeded, but in truth what we have violated is our being. This is so because God reads the heart. He takes us at our word when we make an agreement in our heart, and so when we try to break the agreement made in our heart, we are actually breaking an agreement with God. To do this is to pay the ultimate price in the physical sense. Not because God is punishing us, but because at a spiritual level it is impossible to break a spiritual agreement. Adam and Eve paid the ultimate price for holding something in their heart that did not agree with what they were saying. This was the lie that violated their very being. Their heart was no longer pure. It was conflicted, and so they excused themselves from the Garden of Eden instead of making the correction in their heart. In other words, they could not make an agreement between their words and their heart. Their heart was led in a direction that led away from the truth of their being. Because God reads the heart, they could not fool Him by their words. It was not God that hid Himself from them; it was the couple that tried to hide so the lie would not be apparent to themselves or Him. We today still experience this. When we lie, we try to hide from our lie by trying to blame another. Sometimes one may be sorry for what they have done. We call this remorse, and it is remorse that we look for in another when we feel we have been wronged. Sometimes we want vengeance beyond the point of remorse, so what we are asking for is retribution beyond the “turning” of the heart that God accepts. This means that we are asking for more than God expects, so we demand more than is possible to give spiritually. Is it possible to do this? In a society that believes that what we have is more than who we are, I suppose it is, but only to the degree that we believe this. We can ask for more material things to make up for what we believe we have lost, and this can include even the body in the most extreme cases, but the heart still belongs to God, so in truth all that can be extrapolated is a pound of flesh. This leads to another question. If the heart belongs to God, can we decide that we do not want Him to have it anymore? If we can do this, can we violate the agreements made at the heart level because of a decision made without Him in His Own Home? Perhaps it is possible, but only to the degree that it is a temporary affliction. A lie is still a lie, and deception by any words does not include even a part of truth. Still yet another question arises; if the heart belongs to God, then if we are true in our heart does He keep His agreements with us? Obviously we do not believe this because of the paper agreements we have. What happened was that when someone else did not physically keep their agreement with us, we believed that God could not, or would not, uphold our integrity, and because our integrity was attacked we wanted someone to also pay the price. But when we believe our integrity is in the destruction of another, this is not how God works, and it our own heart that needs correction. The only way to learn of the justice of God is to step away from our own decisions about what justice is. Our form of justice is not justice for all because we do not know what that entails. Being in the physical realm does not separate our heart from God. Our spiritual agreement began at the time of creation. Because we do not remember; this will not excuse us from these agreement, but it will place us in a position of having to remember or re-learn the agreement. This is the position that mankind finds himself today. We will not find an end to the many afflictions that happen in the world until we align our heart with God. God’s Home is in our heart. What kind of a home have we made for Him? If it is not pure, we run from Him and put up blocks so He cannot abide there. We do not want Him to read what we are agreeing to in time when what we agree to defies our being, and therefore Him. This is clearly the separation and it is what keeps us away from what we want and continually provides us with what we don’t want. We cannot break our spiritual agreements, even though we can have a temporary lapse in memory. The restoration of the Garden, or the place where God abides, is still holy because there is a spark there that darkness cannot put out. If it could then the end of mankind would be apparent. We have the ability to begin to live up to the agreements we make with each other so we can be reminded of the agreement we made with God. Out of the hearts abundance, the mouth speaks. When the heart is full of Love, or God, there is nothing else. By learning of Him, we learn of our being, and that’s the way it really is.
