Philo: Foundations of Religious Philosophy in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, Volumes 1-2

could be referred to as a magnum opus. Wolfson is among the few;
and while it truly is remembered that the 2 huge volumes before

Philo as the following, then provide the full improvement of philosophy

distinctive personality since it had a particular resource of
knowledge rather overseas to either the Greek and glossy thinkers,

the "preamble of faith" (p. v). The moderns, just like the Greeks,
try by way of remark, speculation, and instinct, no matter what these
words suggest, to find the reality concerning the nature of guy, and
the nature of his surroundings as much as and together with God himself.
The medieval global needed to sq. all such information of "reason"
with the knowledge in their encouraged Scriptures the place the answers
were all given. greater than this, the medievalists needed to square
their purposes with a philosophical culture which determined
how Scripture itself was once to be interpreted, Wolfson says, for in
revealed foundation, during which philosophy, the made from erring
human cause, needed to be verified and purged and purified. " These
inflexible rules, Wolfson keeps in his Preface, have been all
worked out through none except Philo himself, and so "the philosophy
of Philo" got here to be "the so much dominant strength in the
history of philosophy right down to the 17th century. "

Whatever we acknowledge in others we acknowledge in ourselves, and whatever we share we strengthen. So, realizing this truth, we may be more vigilant about just how we perceive each and every person we encounter from now on. 17 We create our own reality and increase that reality by sharing it. A mass conscious belief gains strength and momentum because it is a shared projection among minds. That is why we need to become more aware of our unquestioned beliefs and openly challenge them. ” The “observer effect” supports the theory that we do indeed create our own reality.

Fear of The Source in every possible disguise is purely lack of trust in Love’s presence. In evolutionary terms, it is “turnaround” time. We have wandered far and long from our original intent, and now it is time to heed the call home to our true nature. We are beginning to recognize that we alone create our own reality in the here and now. And it has taken us until now to evolve sufficiently in order to grasp the concept of an eternal all-inclusive life of higher consciousness within the world of time and matter.

If we do, then we can be certain that when the body changes due to accidents, sickness, aging, or dying, our identity will be tragically crushed or at least altered to some degree. Likewise, we can become elated with a body makeover, weight loss, new hairdo, new clothes, or cure of disease, but of course that new identity doesn’t last and will therefore never bring us happiness. It is important to remember that we are not our body. Free Will The Source created the Infinite State (Heaven, or Nirvana), which is eternal and totally untouched by our temporary separated state in time and space.
