This journey we are on is about enlightenment. We are the divine manifestation of the divine in this temporal reality still one with the eternal reality. OK, that is very heady, I get it, but often words fall short of what is a truth of the Kingdom. We are waking up from a dream. We think we are only ego living in the illusion of a separation lie. We aren’t separate in any way but are ineffably one with God.
I like the image of each of us as a finger on a giant hand that is connected to the rest of a “body” that we call God. We are an extension of the divine consciousness using this body to experience a temporal and physical reality in order to reveal our eternal nature. We just forgot we were the eternal, immortal being that becomes us and is US. Love is willing to lose itself for us to discover ourselves as Love.
When we think we are a separate, independent creature we live in constant fear. Why? Because it isn’t true. In the illusion of separation, we cling desperately to a delusional existence in constant fear of non-existence. None of that is true. The truth is we are existence itself. But when we live in that fear we project the illusion of a broken or fallen ego onto our perceived reality. We “create” substitutes for what is the divine reality. We create in our minds a sky-god that needs to be appeased. We create religion to facilitate the manipulation of said sky-god to get our blessings. We are desperately trying to control something that can’t be controlled. The will of God is that we would wake up from that nightmare, we think is reality, to embrace the truth of the divine reality. “His” will is for us to wake up and find our true self. When we do, we find God.
Jesus’ mission was to show us the way to waking up. His mission was to reveal our oneness with the divine. Jesus often said “I and the Father are one.” This statement is what got him killed. The fallen ego, or false self cannot tolerate such a claim. The broken, self-centered ego cannot accept the truth of our oneness and our divine nature. This is what Jesus was trying to reveal to us. Even His second coming is just our awakening to the truth of who we really are.
When we read the “Bible” with this perspective, we will be free from the illusionary ego-generated religion, based on the separation lie, and “SEE” what Jesus wanted us to see. He often said we are blind and can’t hear. This is what He is talking about. An ego that hasn’t been transformed is blind to the truth. It has been said that the light came into the darkness and the darkness could not see. The darkness is our nightmare dream state that refuses to see the truth of our divine nature.
In the next series of posts I would like to take another look at what Jesus said. I wold like to “shed some light” from the divine perspective of oneness. As an example, how about Abraham?
Jesus was talking to the religious leaders and was trying to get them to see the truth. It was a heated argument where the religious leaders actually said Jesus had a demon or was Beelzebub. When He claimed to be the divine, they were not happy. Jesus was using Abraham as an example of truth.
Here are a few things Jesus said in this discussion. See if you can SEE from this new understanding:
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also.
You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. (the world in this case is the human structures based on the lie of separation and the fear of the ego)
If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (in this case the “word” is the wisdom of the revelation and the truth is our oneness)
And this is where He mentions Abraham:
If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did. You are doing the works your father did.
And who does He say their father is?
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
The “devil” is the voice of accusation that is born of the fear of the ego. It is the product of the lie of separation and the illusion of control. It will kill to try to project control. This is what the fallen ego did to Jesus in the people who rejected His truth of oneness.
Then He says this:
Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad
What did Abraham see? He didn’t see an angry mob trying to kill a man from Nazareth. He saw oneness. He saw our union with the divine. He saw our divine nature.
Then Jesus said this:
Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am
We are all living the one life. We are living the divine life, we are just waking up to that truth. I believe Jesus was telling us that it has always been this way. Maybe as humanity we weren’t ready to “see” until the time of Jesus. Sadly we have been distracted by the mythology of religion for 2000 years, but in this second coming we are in now, don’t we have the capacity to “see” now even more clearly that ever before?
I love this story because it says our awakening is something that will happen. Even Abraham, who live in an age that was completely bound by religious illusions, could SEE.
We are all waking up from the dream of separation. We are all coming alive to live the divine or eternal life. We are all positioned to take a step towards our true self and embrace the truth that Jesus revealed so long ago. We are one. Abraham saw this. We can too if we are willing to let go of our false ego fears and allow our divine nature to awaken.
