BE you renewed

  • Holger 

 

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me, put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. 10Now I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11I am not saying this out of need, for I have learned to be content regardless of my circumstances.
Philippians 4:9-11

Yes, content with all circumstances; but eager to wake up from the dream of man, to the realization of our true nature, as joint-heir in Christ to all the heavenly riches.

to put off your former way of life, your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23to be renewed in the spirit of your minds; 24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
Ephesians 4:22-24

put off

“to put off your former way of life”… not by rearranging appearances, not on the surface, but by being seemingly void, naked; empty of expectations, hope and belief — but fully alive in the experiencing of what IS.

Our person is put off by that! It is scary, it feels like dying; if we don’t have this unexplainable Faith that “it is His good pleasure to give us the kingdom” and “I am with you always”.
I! I, Awareness — Spirit.

deceitful desires

The wicked aspect of us, our forgotten true relationship with God as joint-heirs in Christ, is afraid of the Light, and prefers to hide in the dark.

The ignorant, insecure aspect in us defends and protects itself. Our brain is conditioned to survive as a separate-self in “this world”.

Another aspect is that in “this world” we belief that our happiness is circumstantial, whereas happiness is our true nature, as the child of God.

Our suffering is attitudinal, due to not knowing the Truth, not abiding in our true nature.

be renewed

…not “do” renewed!

“Oh I have to work on myself” is the voice of the wicked in us. “Oh, I just have to wait for the congregation, for God, for Christ, for this world to become a better place…”

I am not using the f-word here to express the futility of our own (involuntary) ignorance. Please give the other cheek and admit that support and companionship are priceless in preparing the ground; but it is you, your Self in the Presence of Love, God who is fulfilling scripture! not another.

Bear the pain of your person, but look deeper, beyond the surface of your own thinking and feeling:

“In quietness and confidence shall be thy [my] strength”.

“Who do you say I am?”

Inquire into your own nature: Who am I? before my eager servant mind tries to sell me reality.

Embrace the Truth that I am not flesh, but Spirit (ever-present, faceless, formless Awareness).

be like God

Be, not do!

God?
God blows our minds, in a good way; any explanation of infinite God in a finite brain is an idol.

But God is Love!
Not puppy love, but the unending power and intelligence that creates and maintains universes; that intimate Presence that pumps our hearts and comforts us with tender love, here and now.

Holiness

Holiness, wholeiness, complete, not missing anything (psychologically), at home, in peace with what IS; abiding — effortlessly — in the depth of your BEing, your true Nature, Light, Lifeforce, Love.

 

bearing fruit with seed according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.…
Genesis 1:12

Seed after its own kind!

Seeds don’t change!
A potato is not transformed into an apple; a “sinner” is not magically transformed — after enough time has passed — into being a child of God!

Sin is not a big “thing”, it was only our error in the way we look at life; how we believed and felt ourself to be a separate-self, apart from Life/Love/God.

The consequences of “sin” can be disastrous in “this world”, but sin itself is very subtle.

We “just” wake up to our true nature.
We wake up from the dream of “I am a person of flesh and blood” to the most natural recognition “I am the Light, I am one with Life/Love.” Nothing has to change on the outside!

Our body came into “this world” of appearances through the birth from below; with it comes amnesia, the forgetting of our true nature.

Born from above is not a physical event, but it can have physical consequences, increased harmony and well-being.

Life is a gift, be brave, open the gift, explore, enjoy! Don’t be afraid of anything, in Love.

Go back to scripture!

Don’t look at Jesus Christ as “another” in space and time, but consider the strange possibility that I AM refers to your own dimensionless, eternal Awareness.

Since you are so open right now, please also allow the hint that there is only one Awareness, one son of God, experienced from uncounted individualized viewpoints.

This does not compute in our brain, which is conditioned to survive in “this world”. But don’t get lost in believing, waiting and hoping; experience is the final test of reality! Reality, Truth, is always here and now.

Knowing the Truth is not an accumulation of information in “this world”; it is more like the intuitive realization that God is Love.

Prayer and meditation are valuable tools to gently and lovingly prepare our minds.

in Him

God intended that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. 28‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are His offspring.’ 29Therefore, being offspring of God, we should not think that the Divine Being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by man’s skill and imagination.…
Acts 17:28

 

We live in Awareness, like fish in the water. Fish don’t know the water as apart from themselves.

Without your spiritual discernment all those words here are foolishness to you. With a little openness and bravery you will be one step closer to the greatest discovery in the human kingdom:

Christ in you is the hope of glory.

Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, 26for, “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof.” 27If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat anything set before you without raising questions of conscience.
1 Corinthians 10:26

Know your scriptures!
It tells you about your own waking up.

The way it is written is a concession to the ignorant mind! You need to exercise your own discernment in order to discover and kNow the Truth.

Nobody can tell you the Truth, it is a gift, Grace; a unique activity in your own Consciousness.

Waiting for the world to change is judging by appearances, is the system of old! Don’t waste this priceless opportunity to escape the prison of your own (involuntary) ignorance.

Either you have Faith and go all the way, or you better forget about the Bible. Don’t use it as a pain-killer but as a wakeup call!

God is Love!
But Love is not what you think.

You pore over the Scriptures because you presume that by them you possess eternal life. These are the very words that testify about Me, 40yet you refuse to come to Me to have life.…
John 5:39

The ME is your own Awareness without which absolutely nothing would exist for you!

Please ponder this!
Be aware of your own Awareness.

Who do you say I am…
flesh or Spirit?
