"the sheep follow him" - The Meaning of the Light Speed

Tokyo Bay

The Meaning of the Light Speed

Nothing in this universe cannot move faster than light.  This is one of the fundamental conditions in the universe.

Light (electromagnetic waves) is one type of energy.  And no other types of energy can move faster than light.  This is one of the fundamental conditions in the universe.  (Therefore the telecommunication method using light or radio wave is the fastest method in this universe.)

But if this universe had been made in a random manner, it is strange that this condition exists.  Material bodies in a universe created in a random manner must move at random speeds; various types of energy in a universe created in a random manner must move at random speeds.  In such a university, there must be no need for the limit of movement of material bodies and energy.  Conversely, this university with the upper limit of movement of everything must not have been created in a random manner.

Countless types of universities might be created in a random manner, and one type of universities created in a random manner may have a limit of the rate of movement of material bodies and energy.  But the probability of establishment of the university with the limit of the rate of movement is almost zero.

However, it is not just zero as our university in fact exists where the light speed it the upper limit of movement of all the material bodies and any kind of energy.   Rather, it means that our university was especially created by God with specific intent.

So, God set the limit of the speeds of everything in this universe by use of light.  In other word, the light speed is the symbol of intention of God or God itself.   Therefore, we cannot get out of this university at the speed faster than light.

Joh 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
Joh 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

"his fame in all that country" - Salvation and Enlightenment

The Narita Airport, around Tokyo

Salvation and Enlightenment

Religion is related to salvation and enlightenment.  Christ Jesus emphasized salvation but the Buddha focused on enlightenment.  However, it does not mean that the teaching of Christ Jesus is not related to enlightenment.

For example, the Buddha forbade his disciples to attend a funeral ceremony.  If a man cannot transcend the wheel of life, what meaning is there in a funeral ceremony?  But the Buddha must have thought that if a man got enlightenment, there would be no need for his funeral.  Yet, Christ Jesus taught that a man being sad due to death of his loved one should be consoled in Heaven.

It seems reasonable that an enlightened man needs no salvation from unhappiness, since such a man is free from unhappiness.  But it is very difficult and rare that a man is enlightened.  So, ordinary people absolutely need salvation.

God is perfectly and completely enlightened, but it does not seem that God requests a man to get enlightened like Him, although Christ Jesus told men to be perfect like God.

For example, Christ Jesus gave the instruction to love God as much as possible but not to get enlightened.

If a man who is not almighty and omnipotent succeeds in getting enlightened to any degree, he cannot rejoice God who is inherently and essentially enlightened.  But if a man who is imperfect loves God as much as he can, God must be rejoiced according to Christ Jesus.  And God will help such a man fully so that he does not need salvation and enlightenment any more, since God is the Master of everything.

Salvation is probably in the realm of love ultimately in relation to God, but enlightenment seems to be in the domain of saints.  If a man is loved by God and thus allowed to enter Heaven, he will be fully enlightened.  And to be loved by God, we have to love God as much as possible, according to Christ Jesus.  This is a part of a religion.
