In a far away land a long time ago, there was a Father and this Father had many children. Time passed and the children multiplied and went to the far stretches of the globe.

As the Children continued to multiply and scatter, the Father looked upon them and saw that they had lost their way. The children had forgotten where they came from and who they were. This disturbed the Father, because he loved his children very much, and wanted them to be happy, and to remember who they were.

After careful considerations, and much pondering, the Father decided to select certain individuals to carry his message to his children. Now the children were many, and located in far and distant lands. The children were not even aware of some of their brothers and sisters, they were scattered so distant, and had became alien to one another.

Now, the Father knew that he could not send just one messanger out to all of his children, with all of their cultures foreign to one another, so he carfully selected a son for to carry his message to each land. Each of these sons were given a gift of enlightenment and truth, and permission from the Father to use any tools and teachings necessary to reach all of his children. The chosen were to teach the children that the Father loved them, that they were all from the Father, and to teach them that their Father wanted them to live happy.

Each of the chosen delivered his teachings of the message from the Father in a way the children of each land could understand and accept. Some of the chosen gave the children commandments to live by. Some of the chosen gave the children stories and lessons. Still others of the chosen lived simply by example and taught meditations and prayers. All of the chosen lived, breathed, and taught the children the message, so that the children could know the Father, remember who they are, and be happy.

It came to pass, as the chosen went out unto the children, the children were in awe of the chosen and paid reverence to them. They built churches , synagogs and temples in the name of the chosen, and formed religons in their honor. The children appointed leaders to make laws and add consequence to the teachings. Many of the teachings fell under scrutinty, and protocals were added, and the message from the Father became obscure.

As the children continued to multiply and scatter, they came upon the teachings of the other chosen, and became confused. The fundamentals of the message became lost, and the children became frightened of one another. This fear turned to anger and wars broke out.

The Father saw his message and knew it was good. He saw his children, and knew they were good, but again had lost their way. It seemed his children could not understand the fundamental message to love and live happy. To the children, sacrifice, burdens, hardships, and suffering were the bases of teaching them how to live a worthy and fulfilling and meaningful life . The Father said OK., because he loved his children very much and wanted them to be happy, and to remember who they were.
