“A realization of the presence of God,
is the most powerful healing agency known to the mind of man.”
‘You’, are not the ‘healer’, it is the ‘truth’ that does the healing.
A 'healer' is simply a sower of seeds, a sower of the truth!
A Healing, is an “effect”, as is the Transfiguration.
A Healing, is actually a ‘mini’ transformation.
The Transfiguration, is a Major transformation.
Both are evidence of different degrees of an Awareness of Oneness.
The transfiguration is the inevitable “effect” of walking in a consciousness of Oneness.
Our salvation lies not in worshipping ‘Christ’, but by living the Christ Life; by walking as the Father, as the ‘Source’.
Does the church not try to teach us to be like Christ? No matter how earnestly we try, no matter how committed to that end we might be, so long as we believe we are the person our parents named us, we can never attain the Christ Mind; we can never be more than a practicing Christian. We can only attain the Christ Mind when we realize that the ‘I’ within us is the Father. In our John Doe identity we have no being. As John Doe we have no existence. As John Doe, we are nothing more than an illusion. God is our reality, our true identity.
The church cannot set this aside as the ranting of a heretic. It is the duty of the ministerial, no matter what the religion, to examine this. The state of the world, even the state of the church, is indicative of the failure in the teachings of the church to bring about world peace. World peace can never become a reality without this knowledge and without the conscious application of this knowledge in our lives.
The New Testament is full of instructions on how we should live as sons of God, but, the means of doing so, has gone unknown. Being “born again” is the only means whereby we can effectively function in that consciousness. Then, it is simply a matter of “being” what we were created to be! “Now”, are we the Sons of God!
The Spiritual Rebirth can only take place
when we realize that the I Am within us ... is the Father.
The Spiritual rebirth as taught by the Church does little more than persuade the seeker to incorporate the ten commandments into his or her life; “John Doe” simply becomes a “practicing” Christian; a “John Doe” trying to be “Christ-like”.
The concept of the Spiritual rebirth as taught by the Church can never lead us into the Kingdom of God; (into a “consciousness of Oneness.”) It does not result in the spiritual seeker being “born again!”
The most important statement made by Jesus to His Disciples 2000 years ago was, “Ye must be born again.” IT IS THE NECESSARY PREREQUISITE TO ENABLE US TO WALK “AS” GOD; IN OUR “TRUE” IDENTITY. Otherwise we cannot enter the “Kingdom of God”. IT IS THE ONLY MEANS WHEREBY WE CAN ATTAIN A CONSCIOUSNESS OF ONENESS. Before we can walk in the “Kingdom of God”; or in other words, “God consciousness”, we must realize that the “I” within us, IS God. They are One, in the same manner that a “branch” is one with the Vine; as a “wave” is one with the Ocean, so too are we a manifestation of God. An “awareness” of the significance of this and the acceptance of the reality of it constitutes the Spiritual rebirth; of being “born again” (that we might be perfect, even as our Father which is in heaven is perfect.) There is not “Me” And God; there is only God! “God” is the Universal and we are the Universal individualized!
The Creation and the Salvation of Man.
With the fall of the ‘sons of God’, God did indeed become ‘Man’, a visible ‘physical being’! Did God know that Adam and Eve would fall? Without a doubt the Spirit of God would have known! It was His plan from the beginning for the creation of ‘Man’, and then, through the Spiritual Rebirth, provide the way for Man’s salvation. God could now give being to ‘himself’, as ‘children of men’, through the process of procreation. (Every human child ever born on Planet Earth, was (is) God in the infant stage of development) Then, before Man could be redeemed and live forever, we would have to know the Truth about ourselves. We would have to know that we are Eternal beings, that we embody the capacity to live forever, but it requires a supreme sacrifice on our part. It requires the death of our imagined identity, our ‘outer self’!
So long as we believe we are merely ‘sons of men’, and function as sons of men, we will surely die. But, thanks to the Spiritual Rebirth, sons of men can, (if we choose to) become sons of God, with all the advantages and privileges of being sons of God. The ‘death’ I refer to, is not our ‘physical’ death, but the death of our imagined reality, the death of our ‘outer self’! This ‘death’, can only come about through a Spiritual Rebirth, through a realization that God (our creator) is the I Am within us. When this is seen, we have a choice to make, a commitment if you will. We can choose to reject God as our reality, and continue to live as the ‘person’ our parents created when they named us at our birth, or we can choose to live in our new found identity, in our I am that I am identity. Should we choose to go on living in our John/Jane Doe identity, we are free to do so, but we will surely die. But, should we choose to live and function in our I Am that I Am identity, we need never die!
This was the significance of the cross and the crucifixion, some 2000 years ago. ‘Jesus’, suffered the agony of the cross, to demonstrate to the World, that the ‘self’ must be crucified before the resurrection of the I Am within us, can take place. Our salvation, does not lie, in accepting Gods ‘son’, as our Lord and savior, it lies in our realization and our acceptance of the fact that the Eternal Himself, is the I Am within us!
Should any man/woman, see this relationship to God, as ‘their’ relationship to God and refuse to accept His offer of Eternal Life, they are as guilty of His crucifixion today, as were they who called for His crucifixion some 2000 years ago. As we walk in the realization that God, is the I Am within us, we begin to take upon ourselves the likeness of our ‘Father’. That likeness, is the Christ! We were not meant to worship the Christ, we were meant to ‘walk’ as the Christ. In that consciousness, we need never die! Therein lies the salvation of humanity! Who but the ‘Spirit’ of God, could have devised such a plan?
We have failed to realize that the Source is the reality of each of us. God, is the reality of humanity. AS ‘Moses’, He gave us the ten commandments. AS ‘Jesus’, He showed us what manner of being we are! That man might realize these truths was the purpose for His appearance on Earth some 2000 years ago. The ‘son’ of God (the ‘Christ’) is but the ‘Father’(the Universal I AM) personified (I and my Father are One) When we realize that we are the Source embodied, we take upon ourselves the likeness of the Source. That likeness is the Christ, the ‘Father’ personified!
The person we believe ourself to be is but an illusion. Our “names” are obstructions, like ‘dams’ as it were, obstructions that keep us from expressing as the Divine beings that we are. So, we think as we perceive ourselves to be and thus create the beliefs that divide us as a people.
When we KNOW that God is ALL and in ALL. When we KNOW ‘who’ we are, ‘what’ we are, and ‘where’ we are, when we have died to self, then, in a consciousness of Oneness, we can say as ‘He’ said some 2000 years ago. I am the resurrection and the Life, he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live, and whosoever liveth and believeth in me (as me) shall never die.
To leave no room for misunderstanding, if we are determined to live as ‘men’, in our John Doe identity (our ‘outer’ identity) we will surely die! Should we choose to live as ‘Jesus’ lived, in our TRUE identity, in our I AM THAT I AM identity, we need never die. LITERALY!
When you “think”, you think it is you, the John Doe who is thinking. Right? Well, not so. You could think no matter what your name is, you could think no matter who you believed yourself to be. You could even think quite nicely without a name. Who then, is the thinker? It is the “I” within you that thinks. Only the “I” can think. There is no one other than the “I” . Only God is. This is why “your” thoughts are creative.
“I” am the first and “I” am the last
and besides me there is no God,
there is no saviour,
there is none else.
(Isaiah 43, 44 and 45)
A ‘seed’ is but the consciousness of the ‘thing, that produced it’, embodied in such a manner that under the proper conditions, the ‘seed’ (the consciousness) will develop as its progenitor, producing more ‘seeds’ ensuring the perpetuation of the species. This action is synonymous with the Creative Principle.
The consciousness is the Father aspect of the creative principle and the intelligence is the Mother aspect. It is the purpose of the Mother aspect to give being to whatever the consciousness believes. The ‘I’ within you that says “I am,” is the Father aspect and whatever the consciousness believes or decrees as being is brought into being by the intelligence, the Mother aspect. You activate the creative principle whenever you think. The ‘I’ within you is the activator of this creative principle. Thus, as a man thinketh, so is he. The Mother aspect, the intelligence, is omniscient, (all knowing). It asks no questions, It knows that you are God and Its purpose is simply to give being to whatever the consciousness decrees as being, to whatever the consciousness believes, and according to your faith in it, so shall your belief be made manifest unto you.
We do not have eternal Life because God gave us eternal Life, we have eternal Life because WE ARE ETERNAL LIFE EMBODIED! ‘Man’, is the only organism in which and through which the Universal Mind can transform itself from manifesting as a temple of flesh into manifesting as a temple of light (from manifesting as a ‘physical’ organism into manifesting as a ‘spiritual’ organism), transcending the experience of death. This entire transformation is accomplished by the consciousness that KNOWS that it is God. (that I and the Father are One) The Kingdom of God and the Consciousness of God are synonymous. Where there is one, there is the other. No ‘man’ can enter that ‘Kingdom’, for it is not so much a place, as it is a state of mind. Then will the one who discovers this realize, that the entire Universe is the Kingdom of God. In ignorance of this, ‘man’ has been wandering around in the wilderness, as it were, totally oblivious to the fact that he was never, ever out of God’s ‘Kingdom’.
If every man or woman on Earth were to speak the English language, no one could introduce themselves without first proclaiming their relationship to the Universal I Am, (to God) as they said hello, ‘I’ am ...
When we realize through divine reasoning (which is just common sense), that the I AM within us is God (the "Father"), that sudden realization amounts to the "immaculate conception", culminating in the "Virgin Birth". It is always the "Holy Spirit", the Truth, that initiates the Virgin Birth, and the womb in which this "child" is conceived is the "consciousness" of the individual. Be it a man or a woman the process is always the same. It is always a "Virgin" birth! The Truth gives being to the ‘Immaculate Conception’, which in turn gives being to the ‘birth’ of the ‘Christ’ within our consciousness. This, is the Spiritual Rebirth! It is then that we will realize that we have been "born again". Then will we realize that the ‘person’ our parents created when they named us at our birth, created the illusion in which we have been functioning. Then, we begin, "as a little child," to take upon ourselves the likeness of the "Father". That likeness is the Christ!
‘The Christ’, is but the Father personified.
We can never develop a consciousness of Oneness without choosing to live in our 'I am that I am' identity. That identity, is the true identity of every 'human being' that has ever been born. Each of us is the 'Father' embodied (the Father and the Son are One and the same). One is the Universal and the other is the Universal individualized. In this realization lies the salvation of the human race.
We believe ourselves to have being separate and apart from each other. When in reality none of us has any being whatsoever. We, are all One. Each of us is the presence of the ‘Vine’, the Source. Every child that has ever been born, or will ever be born, is born to be the Christ, regardless of color, language, religion, or culture. The ‘Christ’, is not a specific person. The Christ, is the Divine Mind personified and the ‘Satan’ we have been warned to avoid is but the Self (the person we believe ourselves to be). If you think this sounds ridiculous, ask yourself this question. What keeps us from being Christ-like? Is it not the belief that we are the person our parents created when they named us?
We have been led to believe that in Jesus Christ, we are All One. But, we are not All One just because we believe in Jesus Christ. We are All One because He whom we call the 'Father', is the absolute reality of each of us! There is no one besides Him! OF OURSELVES, WE HAVE NO REALITY, NO BEING! HE, is WHO we are, HE, is also WHAT we are. HE is the Vine, we are the branches. We read in the scriptures 'there is neither Greek nor Jew, bond nor free, male nor female, for we are All One in Him.' When we realize our relationship to Him (the Vine) we begin to take upon ourselves the likeness of the Vine. That likeness is the Christ. In THAT consciousness, we are All One! Christ, is not a specific individual. The “Christ” is the Divine Mind personified. That we might all realize this, was why Jesus prayed this prayer. “That they all may be one...” (Jn. 17: 21)
