Right of the eldest
In the spiritual realm everyone has it
February 22nd 2018
In our families on earth, there is always a first-born child, then a second, then a third, and so on, because the physical plane on which we live is governed by the laws of space and time, and there is always an order, a ranking of things. One object follows another, and one person follows another, since they cannot all appear in the same place at the same time. But in the spiritual realm, in the divine family, human beings are all of equal rank. All are accorded ‘the rights of the first-born’, which means the status of sons and daughters of God. Only those who give priority to their lower instincts lose their dignity as children of God: their father is no longer God (or the Holy Spirit) but the being who, in the Gospels, Jesus calls ‘Mammon’. Therefore, each one of you must be conscious of your divine filiation and work to preserve your rank.
