Greetings. I am Ham and I am your teacher and friend. As I told you before, I am happy always to instruct your understanding about God and His nature.


Greatness, and its complement, goodness, are the two humanly understandable pillars of Deity's nature and His eternal oneness reality. As your comprehension becomes enlarged, these dual attributes experientially grow in magnitude simultaneously with the growth in their comprehension. Goodness begins as the comprehension of the magnitude of deeds. The reality is later understood that greatness is a measure of human character and goodness is the motivator of the great. Further on, as comprehension evolves, do greatness and goodness become intertwined as divine character traits that simultaneously are the works, and also, the motivator or the source of works. God is great through His good works and also is good through His great works.

The measure of a great deed is the extent that it was motivated by goodness, and good deeds are measured by the greatness of the ideals which spawned them. Learning thus to motivate and inspire our lives by comprehending goodness and aspiring to greatness propels humanity forward by the increasing awareness of the reality of these great spiritual facts. Mercy is the inevitable son of goodness and greatness. Wisdom is the inevitable child of these great spiritual realities, goodness and mercy. As you are slowly learning to experience wisdom, it always shows the way to mercy and goodness combined as greatness.

None of that which men esteem as greatness contains its reality except where it is merciful and good. Goodness in the human experience is vastly inferior to its spiritually pure source, so benighted has your experience become. As the years progress toward greater civilized achievement, will the men who hold these attributes aloft shine forth the way for the multitudes.

Goodness becomes an experiential, spiritual reality by the measure that it is exalted and held aloft. Always will greatness be an increasingly lofty goal, the more it is held above. Only by exalting goodness can it be tasted in this lowly life existence, and the greatness which is esteemed within our characters increasingly gains stature as the attainment falls short. Paradox is inherent in all of human dealing in the divine realms. The more of Deity one experiences, the more understanding of the infinite nature of these experiencables and the greater the longing for experience. Divine water surely quenches thirst, but one who has tasted this heavenly nectar becomes insatiable for more. However much of God you have experienced, there is still infinitely more. Paradox is its seeming in the human understanding, harmonious completion its awareness in the divine understanding.

Goodness and greatness are like having two legs, each one propels the other forward. There is no goodness that isn't fully great, nor is there truly any greatness that isn't good. Tools are involved within this understanding to measure the reality content of every human endeavor. Remember, though, as you seek to understand your place in the universe, that the measurements of divinity are always judged through thoroughgoing mercy ministry and that you individually have not any yardstick with which to measure your true standing, much less that of your neighbor. So, even as I point the way to a kind of judgment, I admonish against using it. Simply use these understandings within your personal sphere of relation to Deity and as your own standing lifts you above where you were yesterday, enjoy the cognizance of spiritual advancement humanly and personally.


I hope that I have been clear.
