Regardless of who our parents might be, whether we be short or tall, black or white, Greek, Jew, Chinese or whatever, rich or poor, farmer or doctor, teacher or stable boy, we each embody the capacity to function as God, as the Father. And that is because no 'man', (no John or Jane Doe), has any being. Every 'man', male or female embodies the capacity to function AS God, and that is because a 'man' is nothing less than the Mind of God embodied! Regardless of the circumstances into which we are born, children of men have the capacity to function As God's. All that is necessary to enable us to function AS the Father is proper instructions from our parents. If a child is made to believe that it is a creative being; (The Divine Mind individualized), and that it can through faith in that belief; simply ask for whatever it should desire and its desire will be made manifest, there is every reason to believe that that child could grow up to function as God, as the Christ! For the 'Christ' is what 'man' was created to be! (Whom do men say that "I" the son of man am?)
Both Adam and Eve were God made manifest. Male and female created He them. Which means only one thing. 'Their children could be nothing less than what 'they' were'. Neither Adam nor Eve realized that they and God were one and the same! (I am the Vine, ye are the branches.) They simply saw themselves as being 'Adam' and 'Eve' (And He called their names a dam). Even though we are told in the scriptures that God made man in His image and likeness, few believe this. And that is because our names have hidden our true identity! And because our religious teachers never discovered our relationship to our Source, ("I and my Father are One"), they were unable to enlighten us as to what manner of beings we so called 'human beings' actually are. If every man or woman on Planet Earth spoke the English language, regardless of who their parents were or what names they were given at their birth, they would all refer to themselves, as "I" should they be asked to state their name. (I.e.: I am known as, or I am.) And we have all been told that God's name is "I"! "I" am the Lord, that is my name and my glory I will not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. (Isaiah 42:8) God and 'man' are One, One is the Universal, and the other is the Universal individualized!
Everyone is an 'effect', and every effect has a cause. Cause and effect, is one and the same thing. An effect has no being of itself. It is but the cause manifesting. So every man/woman on Earth is an individualized manifestation of the 'cause'. This applies to every other living 'thing' on Planet Earth as well! The real World, is the invisible World of Cause. The World we see is but the World of 'effects'. And the 'invisible' World, is the 'Mind of God'! Every 'thing' we see, is the Mind of God manifesting AS that 'thing'! And 'man', is the only organism that embodies the capacity to function AS the Source. Thus was 'man' made in the image and likeness of God. Nothing more than that, nor nothing less! Every 'human' child born on Planet Earth, has been (and always will be), God (the Father) in the infant stage of development. And no one but the Source (the Father), has any being! In ignorance of this, the whole of 'humankind' functions as the 'person' their parents created when they named them at their birth. When we 'think', we are the Father thinking and when we speak, we are the Father speaking, but no one is aware of this amazing truth! It was the Father in the infant stage of development, whom Mary gave birth to (Whom she named Jesus). It was not ''Jesus'' who was born of 'Mary'; it was the Father Himself who came into being 'as her child'. So too is this the case pertaining to every ' human child' that has ever been born on Planet Earth! There never has been anyone other than the Father! This is what Mary saw when the Holy Spirit (the Truth) came upon her. Her realization that man and God were One, is what has become known as the Virgin Birth! A 'birth' which took place in Her consciousness! It is a 'birth' that is synonymous with the Spiritual Rebirth, which is also a Virgin Birth. A 'birth' that takes place in the consciousness of whoever should see that the "I" within them is God, (the Father)! Does this not remove the mystery of the Virgin birth?
Whoever should come to realize that God is the "I" within them, has come to that realization through a 'Virgin' Birth! It amounts to an awakening; a realization set in motion through the realization that God is the "I" within us. And the 'womb' in which this birth takes place, is always in one's consciousness. We are Gods by birth, but no one is aware of this amazing truth, thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth. And thanks to Mary's revelation, she was able to teach this to her son right from his birth. Enabling Him, through faith in this truth, to function AS the Father. It was in this consciousness that He healed the sick, raised the dead and fed the multitudes. That we might see this, was why He suffered the agony of the cross on our behalf. But no one seemingly got this message. The only difference between Him and the rest of humanity, was His awareness of who He was (of what a 'man' is.) He functioned AS the Father, whereas the rest of us function as the person our parents created when they named us! So long as we continue to function in our John/Jane Doe identity, we will surely die, but should 'we' choose to 'die to self', and function AS the Father (as Jesus did) we need never die!
