And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
How do you become like a little child?
You are not afraid to admit “I don’t know”.
You want to really know.
You are not satisfied with cop-out answers from pretentious adults.
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed
My kingdom is not of this world.
Bummer? Very subtle…
If you are waiting then you are in “this world”; space and time are the dimensions and boundaries of “this world”.
If you try to reason or argue with your brain you are in “this world”; the conditioned brain is a product of “this world”.
It is too simple, once you see it; but the pride of the flesh is the barrier; the lack of humility keeps us trapped in “this world”.
“This world” and “my kingdom” pertain to your eternal here and now; don’t escape into thinking, don’t touch the “ya but” of “this world”.
I am with you always!
What is this presence that is with us always?
The Bible personifies your own Awareness as Jesus; another way to say the same thing is: “have that mind which was also in Christ Jesus”.
Don’t imitate on the surface by running your mouth, but by humbly examining every statement of Jesus, as if you were saying it yourself.
You can only examine his Spirit, his message, you can only “follow Jesus”, when you leave behind the limitations of your old person, believes, assumptions, expectations.
You cannot fill fresh wine into old skins. Embrace your own inner space of “I don’t know”, like a little child; the answers come from the depth of your inner Being.
greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
1 John 4:4
God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power
Jesus, son of man, born of woman; like you, like 7.4 billion others.
Christ, the wisdom and power of god; personified as the Christ, to hint our attention to a Presence beyond our own person.
The letter, words and thoughts, are only a means to realize Christ at the core of our own Beingness.
Christ and God are interchangeable terms, for the sake of understanding. Go beyond words, be in the presence of the Holy Spirit; forget about all the idols, the fantasies in your own thinking and assuming; be poor in spirit means to be fully awake and not be stuck in the richness of unexamined believes and hearsay.
All you need to know is in the Bible, in you, but you don’t see it as “man whose breath is in his nostrils”.
You don’t have to physically die for scripture to unfold in you.
There is only one son of God — Christ. The person you are wearing is a preparatory incubator until you can allow and experience the Truth:
“I and my Father are one.”
The words cannot become more clearer, only the veil of personhood has to be removed “in Christ”.
The whole Bible is about you and your psychological drama in “this world”.
Be extremely vigilant to the voice in your own head! Do not be intimidated by fears or thoughts, but know the Truth, know your own scriptures.
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
We start out with believe, then we examine, test, experience and know.
Be sensitive with scripture, don’t just rush over it, you might miss the light of your own discernment.
“whoever believes in me”… that is you, I assume.
“will do the works”… what was his “work”?
The biggest part was to meet the resistance of the person, the man of old.
You have a person too, the one that keeps you in bondage of not knowing the Truth.
“and even greater things”
That’s quite some pressure, because, look at yourself… judging by appearances.
Remember Jesus’ words — through Philippians 2:5 they become YOUR OWN words:
If I bear witness to my person — to all I believe to know and to be — my witness is a lie;
You empty yourself of all the things your conditioned brain tells you about who you are and what you are; you lift up your eyes on high:
It is the “Father” who doeth the work, I and my/your Father are one, there is only one Father, one power, one Consciousness, one mind.
Really apply Jesus’ precious pointers — Philippians 2:6 –: be in the form of God, be equal with God.
How do you do/be that?
As person you are cut off from God through your own mental limitations.
Father, God, Christ…
God is not a future hope, or fuzzy feeling in your head or heart; explaining God is not Love.
How do you transition from entertaining thoughts about God to being in the Presence of God?
Thoughts about God are idols, mentations.
How do you approach God in your own body, in the temple of the Holy Spirit without the man of old?
