The old story of Cain and Able back in the book called Genesis. Here is the skinny on that story. Able, being the humble, good little boy who helped others , took care of his body, and followed every instruction he was given without batting an eye as to the consequences of each instruction. Cain on the other hand was the exact opposite, someone who had a spine, thought for himself, and did not take everything given to him. He was a partier! Enjoyed life to the fullest! So, when the lord asked Cain, where is your brother?
Hmmmmmmm. Here is my take on that story. The physical lesson? Take care of our neighbor? Or take care of your brother? Let’s first decide that what I say in my blog is mine. You have a choice to believe it or choose to believe it is bullshit. Truth or bullshit? Either way, it is interesting to hear.
Let’s start by explaining who your real brother is! Inn order to explain this, I must first state that this is not the only world you live in. Let’s say their is an alternate universe where your brother lives. He is your shadow self. The part of you that you deny. So if you feel you are an honest chap, then your brother is deceitful to maintain balance between your two worlds. If you deny your sexuality in this world, then your brother is probably very sexual or is very secure in his sexuality. Now in life, you and your brother cross paths. During this time of crossing, you are actually confronting him in real life. Ever meet someone who you really connected with, like you knew him? The hope here is for the two of you to exchange certain characteristics of each other to maintain balance. So that is why sometimes your challenged to gain a personality trait that you did not have before. Here is where Jesus, and other great teachers come into play, except they are encouraging only certain characteristics that “they” see as “Good.” How could you do that job without having some of your own experiences of characteristics come into play? The problem is, this is happening in a world where everyone has an agenda, and they want you to develop certain characteristics to suit “their” world. You see, you are living in your brothers world, and your brother is living in your world. This is being your brothers keeper.
Now, can you have a sister too? Yep. You might be a brother sister combination, or maybe a soul mate combination. Either way, you are literally your brothers keeper.
Now, when the lord said, Cain, where is your brother? His blood cries out to me? In my personal opinion, this means that you killed off your brothers characteristics in you. Can you do this? At first I literally believed this, but actually, you may have killed his characteristics on the outside, but he is always in there, waiting to be released. So you have not killed him, your just keeping him in the dark. Thus, you keep hearing that phrase, shine your light. Whats the goal here? To be balanced. See if you can be whole! Be both, so both can live.
