Woo Hoo!

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit,
but test the spirits to see whether they are from God,
because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1 John 4:1 1

 

Be ye like little children!
… it is an instruction to be creative, to have a hunger for Truth, to have an open mind.2

Be playful with the Bible, don’t be stiff and brittle like a dried bone.
God is Love, the good news is relevant here and now, find out for your self: 3

"My kingdom" "this world"
I am the LightI am John Doe, 52 years old, male, 6 feet tall, 190 pounds. I have a BS in this-and-that.
Happiness
Matthew 6:33 19
Pleasure and pain, attachment to outcome.
Love
1 John 4:8 18
A sense of being a separate-self, incomplete, apart from God.
Knowing the Father, God, the cause of the phenomena of life.
John 17:3 17
Judging by appearances and assumptions, based on past and hearsay.
Faith: a reliance in the goodness and generosity of creation.
Hebrews 11:1 15
1 Corinthian 2:5 16
A strong personal sense of doer-ship. A narrow outlook based on survival, defending the person we assume to be.

Psalm 1:1-3 14
At the mercy of other people, outer circumstances and chance.
Always enough.
2 Corinthians 12:9 12

Unconscious lack and restlessness.
A sound mind.
Titus 1:7 11

1 John 4:7 10
Being intimidated by thoughts and feelings in "this world", in our person.
Here and now, life eternal.
John 3:16 9
Avoiding to feel the present moment, a strong habit to escape in an assumed future or past.
"My grace is sufficient for you."

Blame, shame, guilt, expectations, attachments.
Peace and confidence.
Isaiah 30:15 7
...fear or hesitation to admit "I don't know".
Truth = Consciousness --the canvas of all experience, that which never changes.
John 8:32 6
Whatever comes goes.
I AM the Light of this world.
John 12:46 4

I am with you always, I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Deuteronomy 31:8 5
I AM a mortal body.

 

What a treasure the Bible can be when we relate it to our here and now; when it becomes alive and real in this moment.

Sorry, the above table is an oversimplification.
Please help me to see my own blind-spots.

Thank you Steele for all your suggestions!

I need a lot of breathing space with scripture!
It is too easy for me to get distracted from the actual Light.

 

How tempting it is for me to rattle through scripture; it really is “work” to be open.

One thing that struck me: Do you remember how I often said to you that it is wrong to call yourself a sinner! But you were almost proud about it?

Wow!
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Now go and sin no more.”

Jesus, the redeemer, the depth of your own Being is Spirit, dimensionless, not bound by space and time; eternally here and now.
The person we believe ourselves to be is bound to space and time; it hopes that the redeemer comes, one day.

Oh foolish mind (-; how we defend your own darkness:

I AM with you always.
I AM always the Light.

NOW, go and sin no more are Jesus words.

The idea that I, Holger or I, Steele am a body, is missing the mark at its core.

To actually drop a false belief takes less than a second, but our resistance to it might last lifetimes!

“Go and sin no more…”
Our suffering is attitudinal, it is not circumstantial!

Know the Truth that I AM — my Self — is Spirit.
What you call body, flesh and bones is real and consequential in regard to “this world” — where we mix up cause and effect.

As ye sow so shall ye reap…

But “my thoughts are higher than your thoughts”.
If we believe in the person as I AM, we are IN the flesh…

Oh! All stories in the Bible appear to the person as time, space and evolution.

But the Bible is a timeless, Spiritual message; it even will set free future generations on Mars or wherever, without any reference to our current realm.

I AM the Lord… have that mind which was also in Christ Jesus!
Jesus is our pattern for salvation; internally, deeply in our hearts.
It hurts, and it creates a lot of inner and outer turmoil.

The Bible is our own psychological drama, guiding us back home — to Christ — clear seeing of what IS; seeing with right identification.

Oh what a straightjacket language and habits can be!

One day I might be able to make my point that eating from the tree of good and evil did not happen thousands of years ago, but that everything in the Bible points to here and now, points to Spirit, our true nature.

Our person is a garment, dipped in blood.

Thank you so much Steele for our friendship!
Let’s go all the way.

With Love, Holger


  1. “every spirit” also relates to your own thoughts, beliefs and assumptions!

  2. It is too easy to reject and to close down, but much harder to show and share the Truth.

    Don’t miss your opportunity in life; know your Bible, know what the words mean and where they are pointing to…

    If we just rattle through scripture we spill the precious milk.

  3. How does learning work?

    We start with a conceptual understanding, but then go out into the world and make it alive, practical and relevant.
