A jealous god is a feared god, and I see now the relation between True Fear and True Love. These dualities apply to the dualities of the ego and non-ego; the contradiction occurs in the minds of those who, because of fear cannot face fear and cannot move past towards love.
Exodus 20:4-5. “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God…”
I:51. “…Also, take your fill and will of love as ye will, when, and with whom ye will! But always unto me.
52. If this be not aright; if ye confound the space-marks saying: They are one; or saying, They are many; if the ritual be not ever unto me: then expect the direful judgments of Ra Hoor Khuit!”
“Jealousy,” and “direful judgments” all directly address the individual’s ego, and are not to be mistaken as corresponding to the non-ego/Higher self/HGA/God. (The latter obviously does not apply; the non-ego is devoid of ego/judgment/jealousy). The individual’s ego fears retribution from an external “higher power,” whether it is a parent when one is young, society, societal laws, deities, etc.; but what it is actually fearing is the Union with the Higher self/HGA/God within them, once again, because the ego knows it must submit.
The psychological process that occurs (usually when dealing with the monotheistic God) is opposite to Identifying-Objectifying-Banishing a demon/aspect of ego. Here, what is occuring is the automatic ego Objectification (of the HGA into external deities)-Avoidance (denial of external deities)- Incomprehension (of what was actually the issue).
The declaration of any given god to appear ego-full and not just ego-less, therefore, either causes the individual to react with more Mercy, or to Objectify-Avoid-Incomprehend the issue. (Then again, all attacks against the ego can invoke this response.) The individual who is aware that they feel fear regardless of how ludicrous the stimulus (like words on paper from a god), is then given the chance to be honest and inquire within themselves; if they feel fear, there is something to be afraid of (a higher power); and there is something that is feeling the fear (their ego). This is also the function of the Tunis Comment.
The appearance of contradiction in an ego-full and ego-less God have been elaborated upon: when you Love everyone, you hate everyone. Love supersedes all facets of the projection of existence. The individual whom accepts God’s Love sees no contradiction between his jealousy and his Love. One understands that this jealousy is merely an attack upon the individual’s ego, and it is only the ego whom acknowledges this jealousy.
