This posting is very much the same as one I posted some six or seven six weeks ago, but I felt that it should be said again. Anyone listening to the news these past few Months must wonder what it's going to take for men to live as brothers. For men who will put the good of their fellowman ahead of their lust for personal gain. To initiate a consciousness of Oneness (the Christ Mind) is the change that is needed throughout the World. Is this not the purpose of the Churches of the World, regardless of religion? God made 'man' in His image and likeness, so that 'man' might function AS God in the world of form; so that 'we' might fellowship as brothers regardless of our obvious differences! But by the very nature of the Vine, and through ignorance of our relationship to the Vine, 'we branches' have been taught to function as though we have being of ourselves; as though 'we' are 'number one'! The belief that we have being apart from God, is what divides us! We can indeed function As God, once we realize that the "I" within us, IS God... and when we realize that the 'person' our parents created when they named us at our birth, is but the illusion in which we live! The only difference between any of us, is our belief, our 'state of mind'. Apart from our conversation, who can tell the difference between an Englishman and a Frenchman, a German or a Jew, an Arab or a Palestinian, an East Indian from a Pakistani? The Life that gives any one of us 'being' is the only Life there is. In reality, WE ARE ALL ONE!
The relationship of the Ocean to the waves, is an excellent illustration of our relationship to each other and to our Source! A wave, is simply the Ocean in motion. Similarly, a 'man' is God in action. (As a man thinketh, so is he, because man is God individualized!) But virtually no one is aware of this! So we become what we believe or perceive ourselves to be! Until we realize that God is the "I", or the "I am" within us, there will be no peace on Earth. No matter the color of our skin, the language we speak, our perceived Nationality, our religion or the culture we follow, WE ARE ALL ONE, and God, the Father (the "I" within us) IS THAT ONE! The only difference between us and Him who was named Jesus, is that He (Jesus) functioned AS the Father, whereas the rest of humankind functions as the 'person their parents created' when they named them at their birth! Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth! For except a 'man' be 'born again', he/she cannot 'enter' the Kingdom of God. (Unless we be 'born again', we cannot function in a consciousness of Oneness... in the Christ mind!) And we can only experience this Spiritual 're birth', when we realize and acknowledge that God (the Father) is the "I" within us! Every 'human' child that has ever been born, is (and always has been) God, the Father, in the infant stage of development! (Do we not believe He made us in His image and likeness?) God is the "I" within each of us. This, is what the Churches of the World have failed to realize!
The prevailing consciousness in the World is but the evolution of the thoughts and ideas of the past! Is more of the same the change the World needs? Or do we need to focus more on our relationship to God and to each other? We need a re examination of the Life and teachings of the man from Galilee, for humanity has not grown closer as a result of His life, but in fact is hopelessly divided! How are we going to bring the Kingdom of God on Earth, when even in our highest institutions of learning they would have us believe that the Kingdom of God, is a place in the sky where we can only hope to enter AFTER we die. The entire Universe is the Kingdom of God, and this includes Planet Earth! We have never been anywhere other than in the Kingdom of God! As Jesus said, the Kingdom of God is within you. The truth is, the 'Kingdom of God', is a state of Mind! A state of KNOWING that God is the "I" within us! It is even deemed inappropriate to teach the Lords prayer in our educational institutions! This change, this 'mental revolution' must come, but it must come first in our religious organizations. The change must come in our collective consciousness, before it can come in our Government institutions! We must cease to 'compete' with each other for wealth, power and prestige, and seek the Mind of Christ! For only when we realize that God is the reality of each of us, and that we are 'Eternal beings', can we hope to live together as sons and daughters of God! How can we as Christians say we follow Christ, when He, (the Father), told us that it is easier for a camel to go through the 'eye of a needle', than it is for a rich man to attain God consciousness; the Kingdom of God (the Christ mind)? And has the World sought for anything other than riches and power since His crucifixion? The Church is where this change must begin, and it must begin with the teaching of this truth! Mary taught her son that He and God were One! This was the only difference between her son and the rest of humanity! He functioned AS the Father whereas the rest of us were taught to function as the person our parents created when they named us at our birth! And what did they teach us? They taught us 'their' beliefs and the beliefs of their forefathers!
We must come to realize that our names and the color of our skin do not constitute what manner of beings we are! It requires very little explanation to understand that the "I" within us, is who we really are and that that "I", is God... our Father. But we have never been made aware of this! Children are very programmable! Proverbs 22-6 tells us 'Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it!' We are the Spirit of God individualized... the Father individualized! And as we learn to function AS the Father, through faith in this 'belief, we take upon ourselves the likeness of the Father. It is that likeness that is the Christ! This is the change that is needed! Not only in America, but also through out the World! Then will the World see what 'man' is capable of becoming when 'men/women' function as the Christ (As the Father)! This is what the man from Galilee was trying to teach us, but no one got the message. We are All One, and God, the Father, (the "I" within us) is that One! We can indeed function AS God, but we have never been made aware of this. And only because we have never been told that the "I" within us, IS GOD!
Trying to improve the present system, is not the change that is needed! Our present 'political and social systems' are the problem! We must focus on transforming the consciousness of the World through promoting this truth. WE ARE ALL ONE, and God, (the Father) is that One! To function in this consciousness, is to function in the Christ Mind (the answer to Jesus' prayer!) The World Religions could not justify opposing such a change! They could only give such a change their blessings! Such a change would make history! This 'consciousness', would revolutionize the world! In fact, it would virtually herald in the fabled 'Second Coming'! For the Christ, is not a 'person', an individual! The 'Christ', is a State of Mind... it is the Mind of God personified! A state of mind in which any one of us can function once we realize that the "I" within us is the Father! Through faith in the belief that God is the "I" within us, ALL things are possible! We will only see the Second Coming of Christ, when humanity is made to realize that God (the Father) is the "I", (or the "I AM") within every man/woman on Planet Earth! I wonder what the World would be like today, had Adam and Eve, known that they were God individualized; that they were nothing less than 'sons and daughters' of God?
