The Universe in an Hourglass: A Time for Everything

One evening after fishing, a healer told the others that one of them was going to be tray him. The
healer went on to say that after he was betrayed, he would a llow himse lf to be sacrificed (turn the other
cheek-unconditional love). Most of the healers stumbled when they doubted the healer’s words, but two
of them knew it to be true. The hea ler who was speaking was ready to be harvested, and bread had been
made. One loaf of bread was broken into ne ighbor and enemy, divided amongst the other healers, and
the ir last supper together began. The spy ate his ha lf first (enemy), the healers who were stumbling ate
the ir ha lf second (ne ighbors). The hea ler who was going to a llow himse lf to be sacrificed was the bread
of life (one family), and he turned the other cheek and said, “Eat in remembrance of me.”
He then poured the water of life that flowed through his ve ins (emotiona l unconditional love) into
their cups. “I forgive you who doubt me and he who does not believe. I am a cup of life, and those who
drink my blood will have ever lasting life. Drink and remember me. Love your family, neighbor, and
enemy as I have loved you.”
When individua ls accepted this evolved truth (unconditional love) into the ir hearts, the springs of
eternal life (emotional unconditiona l love) welled up within the m and overflowed into other cups.
During the Last Supper a physical cup, the Holy Gra il, was not in the picture because the sun was the
cup. Those who ha ve ears, let the m hear.
After the last supper, the hea ler asked everyone to stay awake with him. Those who had doubted the
healer’s words drifted off to sleep. The spy pretended to do the same, but he got up and left in the
middle of the night. The healer who could not sleep looke d up at the heavens and knew that his time
was near, but he was not alone. There was no greater love tha n to sacrifice his life for his family,
neighbor, and ene my, just as the creator had done for all its seeds. There was nothing that the sun was
about to do that he did not see his heavenly father already doing.
The healer gathered his courage as enemies who were led there by the one who had betrayed him
surrounded him. He walked up to the spy, a child of god, and kissed him on his cheek (a displa y of
unconditional love). The spy who was blind and deaf became fille d with remorseful sadness, and so he
had begun to see and hear again. Those who were asleep woke up, were shocked, and drew the ir verba l
swords of complete separation (no love). One of the m verba lly cut the ear off of the betrayer who had
just begun to hear, and so the only hea ler who was left reached down and picked it up. Surrounde d by
enemies the healer turned and said, “Those who live by the sword will die by it,” and he who had lost
his ear had it healed when he heard the healer’s words. Those who were groggy began to scatter, and
they disappeared into the shadows. But one of them had come back out of the darkness (ne ighbor-
conditional love-partia l separation), and he followed the healer from a distance. He watched as the
healer was brought before the religious counc il (who had made the drawings that moc ked the hea ler
and his followers). Out of the darkness the religious counc il threw stones at the mind, but the stones
crumbled and fe ll to the ground. They threw stones at the soul, but the stones could not penetrate. The
healer broke bread and fed the m. He took one loaf of bread, family, and broke it into ne ighbor and
