God = Consciousness
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. ‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are His offspring.’ Therefore, 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.
Jesus = Awareness
“Woman, why are you weeping?” they asked. “Because they have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I do not know where they have put Him.” 14When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there; but she did not recognize that it was Jesus.…
Who or what is the character Jesus in the Bible?
We all outgrew the believe in Santa Claus coming through everyone's chimney, or Easter Bunnies painting and distributing hard boiled eggs (-;
Is it fair to ask who or what is Jesus? In a loving way, to facilitate the highest discovery in the human kingdom.
Nobody wants to waste their life through stubbornness or fear. The measure is not what other people told me, or what I believe, but what do I know, here and now. There is something we overlooked our whole life, so far.
"... Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The Bible can be a super-important as a tool in understanding our own sufferings and delusions; to lift the veil of our own unaware ignorance.
But their minds were closed. For to this day the same veil remains at the reading of the old covenant. It has not been lifted, because only in Christ can it be removed. 15And even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts.…
It can easily get confusing and messy in the Bible, because we encounter so many words that require deep pondering to be understood.
Rarely do we take the time to go beyond our surface thinking mind; the distractions seem endless: What's for dinner? ... Sorry I need to go to the bathroom? ... What was this email notification?
Who or what is Jesus?
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Do you take it to heart, do you include your self when it says "unto us"?
Do you take responsibility?
The problem is that we don't know how to examine our own mind; we don't have the inner space to clearly see how our own thinking mind operates and where confusion seeps in.
If the Bible is true -- and it is -- then what is this "I am with you always"?
It cannot be an object perceived through our mind, because nothing in "this world" is permanent.
Remain in Me, and I will remain in you. Just as no branch can bear fruit by itself unless it remains in the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me. 5I am the vine and you are the branches. The one who remains in Me, and I in him, will bear much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in Me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers. Such branches are gathered up, thrown into the fire, and burned.…
Depending on your own conditioning -- your past -- Consciousness and Awareness don't mean much. They are maybe just dry, dead concepts.
Don't believe me, but bravely investigate:
Consciousness and God are synonymous: the cause of the phenomena of life.
Jesus and Awareness are synonymous: "without me you can do nothing".
"Truth" is that which never changes.
What in you does never change?
Thank you for your openness (-;
