In my opinion here is why the World is in the condition it is in today. We have a World comprised of some six or seven billion individual manifestations of the Divine Mind, with every one oblivious of being the Divine Mind individualized, or in other words, oblivious of being the Creator of the Universe embodied in the form of a 'man'! Man is a creative being, because the organism known as 'man', is God individualized! But virtually every one is oblivious of this amazing truth! Not a single person functions AS God (As the Father) Virtually every one functions in the illusion of being the person their parents created when they named them at their birth! God (the Universal Mind) made each of us so that we could function AS the Source, but 'He' (or IT) did not create this person we believe ourselves to be. Our parents 'created' us, (the person we believe ourselves to be) when they named us at our birth! The "I" within us, is WHO we are, but virtually no one is aware of this.
'Jesus' was made aware of this by His Mother, so from the cradle he functioned as a 'son' of God, NOT AS "Jesus" the man! He functioned AS God (the Father.) Whereas every one else functions AS the person our parents created when they named us! This was why he said that 'we must be born again'! Born into the realization that God (the "I" am within us) is who we are. GOD IS WHO WE ARE! Every 'human' child that has ever been born on Planet Earth, is, (and always has been, and always will be) God (the Father) in the infant stage of development! He is the "I" within each of us! But virtually no one realizes this! So in ignorance of what manner of beings we are, we think and thus create, as we perceive ourselves to be, resulting in the creation of the World we live in today.
Virtually no one is aware that a 'human' child is God (the Creator of the Universe) in the infant stage of development. NO ONE! So our parents name us, and then program us to believe that that is who we are! So millions go through life never ever realizing that GOD IS THE "I" WITHIN US! They search for God through following the beliefs of our religious institutions, never ever realizing that we are looking at Him every time we look in the mirror. (He who hath seen me, hath seen the Father He said!) Nor do they ever realize that the SATAN they have been warned to avoid is no less or no more than the 'imaginary person' their parents created when they named them! If you think this is not so, answer this question. What keeps you from functioning As the Father? Is it not the belief that you think you are this person your parents named you?
That which God is, is that which every man or woman on Planet Earth is! NO 'John or Jane Doe', has any 'being! Only the Source has being! Call it God, Allah, Buddha, Krishna or what ever else you wish to call IT. Only God is! But every one thinks they have being of themselves! Now can you see why the World is in such turmoil? It was Jesus' most fervent prayer, that we ALL might come to this realization, for there will be no lasting Peace on Earth until we realize, that in spite of our color, language, religion, culture or perceived Nationality, WE ARE ALL ONE! And that ONE, is the God we strive to emulate! Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth. And then, through faith in the belief that God (the Father) is the "I" within us, we will see why we must 'treat our neighbor as ourselves.'
