I have written several essays on what I believe was Gods purpose for creating Man. Creating man… was Gods way of creating Gods! It was not 'Jesus' who was born in Bethlehem some 2000 years ago. It was the Father Himself who was born in that manger. And He was named Jesus! At our birth, each of us, is simply God (the Father) in the infant stage of development, only we are not yet the 'finished product'! The rest is up to the Church, our parents and us! Jesus knew that He and God were One…One and the same! And on the Mount of Transfiguration we read where He shone as the noonday sun! When we come into being, (at our birth) we embody the potential to become beings of Light! God said, I am the Light of the World. But… 'we' come into the World as a being of flesh and blood. I believe I can say that without a doubt, God consciousness is synonymous with Light, for what is God but the Divine Mind…the light of the World…the light that lighteth every 'man' that cometh into the World! It was His consciousness of 'being God', that caused Him who was known as Jesus, to shine as the noonday sun!
At our birth, we are 'potential' beings of Light! We embody the potential to attain God consciousness! As we mature…(should we realize that God is the "I" or the I am, within us), we can indeed function AS God (in God consciousness) if we should choose to. And… should we be determined to function in that consciousness, we definitely can walk As Jesus walked. He knew that He and the Father were One. We too can attain that realization. In doing so, we become what we were created to become. Beings of Light! If God is Light, then that is what we shall become! It only makes sense that man was meant to attain the transfiguration! We also read in the scriptures that 'flesh and blood cannot enter the Kingdom of God' Which means that we cannot attain the ascension without first attaining God consciousness. . without first attaining the transfiguration. We also read in the scriptures that no man has ever seen God, and that is because God is the 'person' of the Holy Spirit. And we cannot take upon ourselves the 'person' of God without the Spiritual Rebirth… without realizing that God is actually who we are and what we are! God is the "I", (or the "I am"), within us…our true identity! So…we can indeed function AS the Father once we realize that the Father is the "I" within us, or we can continue to function as the person our parents created when they named us. The choice is ours to make! As I said at the beginning of this short essay .Its up to the Church, our parents and us! It is a paradox! God…is not the body…the form. (Yet He is that as well) God is the consciousness …the 'person' that abides within the form! And the 'person of God'…is the product of the Spiritual Rebirth…the product of this Truth…the realization that the "I" within us is the Father!
To walk in this consciousness, is to walk in God consciousness. The consciousness of 'being' God! It is this consciousness that transforms our bodies, into temples of Light, enabling us to 'ascend' into Gods Kingdom as Gods in every sense of the Word!
