-“No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.” ~Albert Einstein
Okay, let’s talk about Jesus again. If you’ve been reading my posts you know I’m talking about Jesus as the man who transcended the illusion of a physical world in his lifetime. I’m talking about the man who knew that the story of Adam and Eve eating the apple from the Tree of Knowledge was sorely misinterpreted. He knew the real meaning of the story is that the apple represents knowledge received in the physical world. The knowledge given by the “apple,” in this case, is that the physical world is reality. That’s all the apple represented, belief in a physical reality, a belief in the data of the physical world. Adam and Eve were banished from heaven, heaven being the truth that physical reality is an illusion and that we are actually spiritual beings. And, so, they were banished from the state of grace, from knowing who they truly were. Their banishment was self-imposed. Once they believed that the physical world was the only reality, they forgot that they were unlimited divine beings. Knowledge, in this sense, is a human understanding of life. Adam and Eve gave up their divinity by believing in the physical as real. Of course God didn’t kick them out. They simply erroneously believed. Heaven is knowing that only love is real and all else is illusory. We get knowledge from the physical world, laws such as the law of gravity and the laws of motion. The only “truth” that many believe is what our five senses can tell us. From the spiritual world we know all, we are omniscient, we are all-powerful and all creative. We are the pure energy of love. The spiritual world shows us that we are unlimited and all present. We cannot get this knowing from the physical world. All we can get from the physical world is facts and data. That is why it is so important to spend time in spirit. That is what Jesus was trying to tell us.
In spirit we begin to realize just how amazing and connected we are to All, and I mean All, the everything, everyone kind of All. We begin to know of our divinity and we find out that we are boundless love. Jesus knew that. He realized that this physical reality is just a collective holograph, a theory that quantum physicists are just now putting forward. Professor, you had nothing over Jesus. Imagine a being so advanced that he was able to “divine” all of this. And he shared it with us. He was love. He could only heal people who believed that he was divine love. When we can see him clearly, without all the misinterpretations that have been presented as his message, then we can learn from his life.
I’m repeating myself here, but Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is within.” You are God. You are a part of the divine. You are the pure energy of love which is everywhere and infinite. You were created in the “image of God.” There is no time and space. There is only the “always was and always will be.” There is only the omnipresent and omniscient. Sounds like God and is also the definition of energy. As God cannot be destroyed neither can energy. Neither can you. As God is everywhere at all times, so is energy. So are you. As God makes up infinity, so does energy. So do you.
It has already been shown that all matter is simply dense, organized energy, so surely you can at least be open to the idea that you are a part of the All. Matter is energy. You are matter, therefore… When we all finally realize our divinity the world will no longer be a place of competition and fear of lack. We will all realize our connectedness and that we are all a unique and integral part of pure love and peace. We are as important as Jesus was in bringing the truth to light.
Through your consciousness, indistinguishable from the All, you bring that light into the world. That’s how important you are. We cannot do this individually. We must all be brought into the truth. The truth will, literally, set us free. So, the next time you think about meditating to raise your consciousness, remember that you will be doing the world a service by opening to spirit. The more people who open to spirit the more our Collective Consciousness will be raised and then more people will begin to really “know” the divine.
Jesus is a part of you. His energy, also called, “Christ Consciousness” is what will lead you to the divine. I’m not saying the only way to God is through belief that Jesus was his son. I don’t think Jesus was saying that. When he said that the only way to heaven “is through me,” I believe he was using “me” as his term for pure consciousness. Also called the “I am”
“I am” is a good meditation mantra. “I am” is a powerful tool of transformation. I am. Jesus knew the I am. He is the I am. He taught the I am. All that we are is what Jesus taught us. He is not the only being who lived on earth that transcended the illusion. There are those recorded in history like Jesus, the Buddha, and others, but many more who quietly transcended or had few followers. Jesus and Buddha brought their light to many more and have changed many lives. Most humans have been so entrenched in the physical world that few have understood or listened. He who has ears, listen was a refrain of Jesus. In areas of the world where spirituality is given more importance than consuming and conquering there have been many more trancendants, places like India and parts of Asia. There have been many “masters” from these areas because their culture embraces the idea of spiritual transcendence, but more importantly they embrace living a life focused on spiritual loving kindness. People like Lao Tsu who wrote the I Ching. Our culture is changing and there is a huge spiritual movement of unprecedented numbers. Sixty years ago meditation wasn’t even in most people’s vocabulary, let alone a part of their lives and yet, now, it is a daily practice for many in the west.
We are a growing number. People are dissatisfied with the physical reality. There can be no true and lasting joy in the physical reality. Only by knowing who we are can we ever truly be self-realized and eternally happy. So, thank you, Jesus and all of you other masters, for that. We’re working on it.
