The Eye of I

The Eye of I

The beginning and the end is I. And I is Now, and I is Here. Neither I, nor Now, nor Here have any meaning. For there is no Thing other than what is. The I is and is nothing. Nothing cannot be counted, Nothing cannot be measured, Nothing cannot be described. The beginning is also the end and all Things between.

The Eye of I is itself. The I sees its own possibilities with the Eye. It sees Creation in Nothing, it sees what is as itself. The Eye of I observes while the I is observed observing. The Eye and the I are Now and Here.

The possibilities of Nothing span from no Thing to every Thing. Nothing is Here and Nothing is Now. The Eye sees all things between no Thing and every Thing in the Here and in the Now. The Eye is Here and Now.

The Eye sees the I and the I is Nothing. In Nothing is no thing and every thing. The I is both the I and Not the I to the Eye. The Eye sees the I and does not see the I between no Thing and every Thing. The Eye that sees is the Eye that does not. The Eye that does not is seen by the Eye that does. The I is the Eye.

In the Eye We exist, to the I We do not. The I is what is, the Eye sees what is. The Eye is the Beginning and the End, the I is Eternal.

Expressing myself….

I haven’t been writing lately because I’ve recently found an interest in another form of expression. The beautiful part about writing on this blog is that the words give me a certain degree of anonymity…which is very helpful when talking about the undefinable “self”. I’ve decided to try another form of expression and self-communication through the medium of YouTube. This is a much different form of expression and is quite entertaining. I will continue to write here on the blog, but if you would like to visit my Video Page please visit the link below

Sincerely,

Family

Family. Often we seem to think of family as the people who are biologically connected to us. Those who share a name, a history, or a culture. This perception of family is rampant in our reality…it is promoted, advertised, and even deemed necessary. It is the belief that you are part of a group that is somehow separate from the other “groups” throughout the world. It’s a comfortable perception surely, but is it really what is?

As a body this perception is absolutely vital…it is a way of answering the question “Who am I?” or “Where do I come from?”. But as a consciousness….things are a little different.
True, it’s very reassuring to know that there are certain people that absolutely care for you and love you…it’s nice to know that those people we deem as “family” will always be there for us. It’s an ego boost…a way of feeling important to someone else. But is this always the case? Unfortunately no.
Often our feelings of resentment or even disappointment come from the fact that this concept, which we have been told over and over again is the way things should be, is not the way things are. Sometimes we are abandoned, ignored, taken advantage of, or even used as a crutch for those who are supposed to understand us the most….those who are supposed to love us unconditionally often have conditions for that love. We are often “disowned” for something as simple as a different life choice…we are shunned because we choose to look at life a little differently, we choose to follow a different path, or even simply because we value different things.
Why? Because the concept of family is an ego-based concept. It is a belief that the body is more important than the consciousness that drives it. It is the belief that we are connected by blood and history…not by our awareness of self.
In being One entity the fact is that we have no family and that we are all family. “Family” doesn’t even begin to describe how we are all connected…and in letting go of the concept we let go of the belief structure behind it. When we let go of our ingrained preconceptions of family we begin to see that those who are biologically connected to us are the same as everyone else…we lose our expectations of them…we accept that they, like every other reflection of your “self”, have the right and ability to do and think anything they would like to. They are not under any illusionary responsibility to accept your life, the changes within it, or even your choices…they are under no contract.
Without the concept and preconceptions of a biological “family” we are faced with the realization that everyone has the right and ability to choose. They can accept you or not…they can relate to you or not…they can share with you openly or focus on their own needs and wants. If we all have this ability then there is no reason to separate us simply based on our last names or blood type…in fact there is no need to separate us at all. If blood is what is important…we all have it. If we truly must have a Family…then we are all part of it. The questions “Who am I?” and “Where do I come from?” can be answered quite easily….you are us and we are you, we come from each other. We are one….value all of us, treat us equally and expect nothing. I will do the same for you.

Your brother, sister, father, mother, son, and daughter,

Me

Interesting clues….

I’m not generally one who clings to belief structures or the interpretations of others. I don’t believe a book or scroll will give you the answers…but I do pay attention to everything that comes through my reality.
Reality…from the very beginning, has had a lot of constant symbols (The Bible is an example) that practically scream for your attention. These symbols are made important by their age mostly…and since we are not trying to learn new things but rather remember things we already know…history is a good place to look for clues that we have left ourselves.

With this in mind I find the Mayan Calender very interesting. I may not agree with many of the interpretations people have made from this calender but I definitely recognize it’s “historical” accuracy and the fact that it seems to be describing the “pattern of consciousness” that is unfolding. The calender itself is attempting to describe the organized steps of creation…not specifically, but in general terms. Recently I stumbled across a video seminar given by Ian Lungold on Mayanmajix.com and thought that you, the reader, might be interested in checking it out. If anything, it’s an interesting subject.

Dropping “Being Bombs”

Recently the idea of “awakening the world” has re-emerged in my mind and I thought this might be a good chance to write about it. There was a point in my life where this idea was very tempting and seemed to make a lot of sense. It’s hard to see something so simple that so many “reflections” are simply not stopping long enough to see…it’s so easy to fall into the trap of thinking that I could/should be their “teacher”.
There was even a point, earlier on, where I decided to make small, one-page fliers and hand them out to whoever I ran into. These fliers were entitled “The Answer is Simple” and were regularly refused by people out of fear that they were “advertising” or “religious pamphlets”….even when they were read I would later find them thrown into garbage bins or onto the street. I’m not trying to be negative here…in fact I can honestly say that a great many of these fliers ended up in the hands of people who truly appreciated them. I found some of them in the local highschools, in a few restaurants, even hung in someones apartment (whom I had just met that day).
Just a simple message…Be. Nothing complicated, nothing requiring money or a belief structure…nothing requiring work towards a “better tomorrow”. Just a reminder to people that they are already being everything they need to be…just stop and appreciate what you are. Stop trying to change what you are and just Be….the rest will take care of itself.

Well, it’s been a few years since that last attempt. I no longer pass out fliers or try to “speak truth” to the masses….in fact, I say even less than I used to. But words do not make the message….
Almost 2 decades ago I heard something in school that never truly registered with me until right now. The words of Marshall McLuhan….

The Medium is the Message

It isn’t through words that the feeling of “being” can be expressed…it is through actually “being”. Not trying to be a teacher, a philosopher, or an intellectual but just being. What I often forget is how powerful something as simple as simply “being” can be. Quite literally you could go out into the world and talk about anything….absolutely anything….and in the right mindset the feeling and concept of “being” will pass onto the person you are talking with.
It doesn’t require well-worded philosophies…it requires a mindset that comes from not trying to have a particular mindset. You could talk about the color purple, the smell of dew in the morning, or even the horrid noise made by street cleaners at 4.A.M…..anything.

I find it funny that my original flier still comes back into my mind to teach me things. The Answer is Simple…Be. I am the message, not my words.

So where does this leave me? It leaves me with a tremendous joy at the prospect of “being” everywhere that I can. It leaves me feeling happier to do the simple things…walk to the store, talk to strangers, and participate in online discussions.

I would say that the best thing I can do is stop trying to focus on what I think everyone else should be doing. I should enjoy what I’m doing and let change happen as it should. This is one of my main reasons for enjoying the Internet…the anonymity.
I can write articles, leave comments, or drop messages anywhere and none of it is designed to change peoples minds…none of it is designed to teach. It’s all just “off the cuff” thoughts that I feel some small pleasure in being able to type. Even this article here isn’t for your benefit…it’s for mine. Whether or not you benefit from it is up to you. But then there’s my point…I may not be trying to teach you but, through your own will to learn from the reality you are creating right now, I am….and I’m doing it by simply being myself.

Sincerely,

Me

Reborn…

This is my child. Up until recently I have only been aware of this child being a “lump” in my wifes stomach…now it has a face and the reality of that is quite impressive.

What I often forget about birth is that it is my own birth. Quite literally this child is my own mind starting a story that is similar but profoundly different than the one I am currently experiencing as its father. It is emerging from a state of utter unity into the world of duality, possible perceived limitations, and experience.

This consciousness, which so recently built a brand new body, is going to go through the same lessons that we all go through. It’s going to learn about a reality that is separate from itself…it’s going to learn how its body works…its even going to learn what taste, touch, and sound are. It’s going to be quite a shock.

The really interesting part of this experience is that I am aware of being both sides of the experience here. I am aware of being the Father as well as being the child. I often talk about how our own consciousness is always there for us, acting as different characters throughout our life in order to help us along…but this is where I’m truly experiencing that reality. To this child I am simply an extension of itself…I am a part of its reality that is supposed to help it along as it gets used to living in Duality. Every thought, insight, or impulse that I have is literally connected to what this “childs” mind is creating for its own good.

I think we often limit our children by assuming that just because they don’t speak they do not understand. To a consciousness that is learning the concept of being separate from the things around it I would think that it understands a great deal. Perhaps more than we are willing to admit. Our children hear our justifications, our escapes, and even our self-deceptions. They learn from our own lack of responsibility from the moment they come into this world….just as your own mind knows when you are lying to yourself, your child does as well.

I think that this is the biggest part of what I have been facing within myself lately. So often I come across “parenting” tips from people who truly believe the best way to raise a child is to Train it, To control it, and bombard it with a belief system. I have been wondering if I would do the same thing…am I so insecure in my own sense of self that I must condition a newly emerging consciousness to agree with me before it can make its own choice about what to believe? Is it right for me to stomp out any chance this child might have to explore perceptions and beliefs that I myself was too afraid to explore? I think not.

I think the one thing I must have faith in is what I have had faith in all along….myself. This child is nothing more than another reflection of my own mind and because of that I must realize that it has the ability to choose, it has the ability to see, and it has access to infinite perceptions. This child is not something to be trained, it is something to be communicated with. It is something to be learned from rather than simply taught. As a consciousness this child will learn regardless of whether or not I boost my own self-image by deeming myself to be a “teacher”. In making myself out to be a “teacher” I am doing nothing more than being an example of self-righteousness and ego. I am not this childs teacher, I am an extension of this childs reality.

I am often amazed at my own life and how many choices have been made since its beginning. I look back at my path through perception and see an infinite amount of choices I could have made and even the points where I chose to pass those choices off to whoever was willing to make them for me. I know there are realities where the observer (me) has different choices and less chances to pass them off. There are realities where I am not immediately faced with the belief that I am separate from everything else…It amazes me to see this child being born into one of them. It is comforting to see myself being Reborn again.

Seeds and Perception

I often forget how strong resistance can be within a person until I come face to face with a reflection of myself who is absolutely devoted to self-definition and structure as a means of security. Recently this particular type of reflection has come into my reality and I decided to see if this resistance would end through logical analysis or would simply resist harder. Not surprisingly, the resistance became stronger as the conversation continued.

If you haven’t read my What If and Devoutly Religious posts than I would highly suggest that you visit the comments of both to see how this conversation has progressed.

The thing that really amazes me is that, during the conversation, the reflection I was talking to was actually using quotes that hurt their argument rather than helped it. Often I was accused of contradicting the bible but they were actually contradicting themselves. Asking where my contradictions might be didn’t help because that question was never answered (either because they had no solid answer or they had no understanding of the word “contradict”).

A brief example of one of these contradictions is assertion that this person does not believe they are separate from God…they simply believe that God is above them. It seems to me that “Above” requires something to be “below” and POOF you have a separation.

I have often said in this blog that it is very easy to hold onto a belief, a symbol, an idea, or even a label out of fear. This fear is always a fear of the unknown but manifests in many ways…fear of being alone, fear of not having support, fear of not having definition, even just fear of what life would be like without having heaven to hope for afterwards. I say this, not out of judgement, but out of the awareness that I have and do try to use these fears myself to justify holding onto something.
If you’re not afraid, you have no need to hold onto something that makes you feel safe…like the concept of Heaven after death. This point, however, did not go over very well. In fact, this point was always met with outright defensiveness.

I feel sorry that you think this is all there is to life. How sad. This is heaven and earth you said. This earth is just one piece of our existence for those who trust and believe in Jesus. I would kill myself if I believed that because what would be the point of this life? (Direct Quote from the conversation)

It was as though the idea that The Mind could actually come up with Wisdom on its own was absolutely preposterous….Almost ridiculous. Obviously something must back up what I was saying…otherwise it isn’t worth thinking about.
Once again…fear of not having support.

example.
What do you base your beliefs on–your own thought? Well you got those from somewhere, so aren’t they opinions too? I base my belief on a book that has been around for thousands of years. It has failed to be discredited. It still exists for thousands to read. Why do you think that is so?

Now…at no point had I said the Bible wasn’t valid. I was simply trying to point out that it is not the only source of God’s Word. There are many books throughout history and, if God is the creator of all, it would seem to make sense that all of them were God’s Word in one sense or another. Once again…outright refusal. This conversation about the validity of the Bible went on for some time on her own blog. If you would like to check it out, please visit http://charlottestyle.blogspot.com/2007/04/validity-of-they-bible.html
Update : This post has now been deleted due to the author not liking her own words.
Mark from the Naked Soul blog jumped in as well with a very well worded comment that was also immediately ignored.

The next tactic of resistance was, of course, attacking my vocabulary. I was accused of double-speak at one point and even more often I was accused of not using words properly. I would like to take this opportunity to define the words I apparently misused from an online dictionary.

Wisdom : accumulated knowledge or erudition or enlightenment
Enlightenment : education that results in understanding
By the way, wisdom is not knowing yourself.
Faith : a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny
The Word of God is the Bible. If you actually heard from God, I’d know it from scripture.
Believing : the cognitive process that leads to convictions
I am at least honest in saying where I get my beliefs from–a book that still exists even though many people have tried to get rid of it and have failed miserably!

I would like you to note here that all the text in black is a direct contradiction to the definitions above them. Wisdom is accumulated knowledge or enlightenment and enlightenment, ultimately, is understanding the self. Faith is a strong belief in a consciousness/supernatural force that is responsible for reality and how it works…not belief in a book. Believing is the cognitive process (thoughts/insights/analysis) that leads to convictions…it is not simply believing what someone else has written.

At several points during this conversation the other person would try to get out of explaining her views by saying things like “I don’t want to split hairs” or “I don’t have time now to explain what he meant and I feel it would be wasted anyway. ” This would normally be the point where I would end the conversation and let that reflection think whatever they would like to think…in this case the circumstances were a little different.

What I haven’t mentioned here is that I was not the originator of this conversation. In fact, the very first comment exchanged was on my Heaven & Hell post. Being told that I am “choosing death” is not exactly the friendliest way to begin a conversation….I wasn’t particularly offended by the comment, but I definitely felt that a conversation might be both enlightening and entertaining. Realize here that the other party repeatedly told me that she was “trying to understand my views”…so naturally I was happy to expand on them. What I often forget is that people tend to say things they really don’t mean…but saying those things is supposed to convince me that they mean it.

In the end I was told that “God didn’t tell me to talk to you” despite her previous declaration of belief that God is all-powerful and all-knowing. This is where I truly had to smile. First I was told that I limit God by making God an equal to myself (considering that I think I am “God” and that I myself am an unlimited entity this really didn’t make much sense). Secondly she tells me that God didn’t make her talk to me…as though somehow this particular conversation somehow escaped the infinite matrix that is creation. I pointed this out of course and was promptly told “To clarify, when I said that God didn’t tell me to talk to you–what I meant was that I chose to talk to you.”
All of our choices are also directly a part of “God’s” plan. To say that our choices are somehow separate from what is supposed to happen is not only limiting God, it makes no sense at all.

Unfortunately this conversation ended with her getting quite angry and calling me “coo coo”. I would be the first one to admit that I’m “coo coo”, so this really isn’t an issue. The conversation was then promptly closed to any new comments.

So what is the point to all of this? It’s a reminder…the part of myself that is resistant has been resistant since the beginning. This side of the duality has existed since duality was born from unity and will not waiver until the very end. Overall I’m quite happy that the conversation happened…not because I’ve upset someone (once again, I didn’t start the conversation to begin with…so that choice was hers), but because it reminded me that no matter how straightforward a message might be…it is always open to interpretation. And more importantly, that interpretation is based upon our own fears. We cannot see what we are afraid to see.

Here and Now, Responsibility, Unity….these things can all be feared quite easily. This is why even Jesus spoke in parables…those who would understand did, those who did not would be too confused to get angry.

Matthew 13:10
“And the disciples came and said to him ‘Why do You speak in parables?’
Jesus answered them ‘To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted.'”

The parable of the seeds is nothing more than a way of saying that our words will be understood in different ways. Either disregarded, absolutely resisted, somewhat understood and a cause of temporary joy, or absolutely realized in the most profound way possible.
Matthew 13:18
“Hear then the parable of the sower.
When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is the one on whom the seen was sown beside the road.
The one on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, this is the man who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy;
yet he has no firm root in himself, but is only temporary, and when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls away.
And the one on whom seed was sown among the thorns, this is the man who hears the word, and the worry of the world and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.”

Words can be interpreted in many ways…the seeds can only be sown in the proper perception, otherwise they do not grow.

The “Devoutly Religious”

devoutly religious; “a god-fearing and law-abiding people”

Throughout my travels I have met, conversed with, and even befriended people who are considered to be “devoutly religious”. At one point these meeting happened quite often and served as chances for growth. Though I am thoroughly convinced that all true knowledge comes from the “Self” it is equally true that all objects, all words, and all meetings are also reflections of that Self attempting to communicate. The “Self” or “God” is always trying to get our attention, always trying to give us clues, and always trying to point out a way of life far more involved and profoundly significant than our average day-to-day worrying.
With this in mind I tend to listen to the meanings behind religious text or sermon rather than the literal meaning that is so often focused on. I do this because, from my own experiences in the world, I have noticed that everything has a deeper meaning than the one we first assume to be true.
The Bible, The Torah, The Qu’ran, The Tao Te Ching, The Dhammapada, Vedic texts, etc…all of these books have a huge spectrum of truth to them. All of them are written based on one concept…there is a consciousness responsible for the reality we are experiencing. This is the reason that these texts are so often the focus of attention in our lives…they are clues that we should definitely pay attention to.

There is an unfortunate temptation associated with these books however. They are easy to worship.

Despite the fact that many Biblical stories actually say that one should not worship false Gods or “Golden Calves” we see this exact thing happening in the world today. This worship is well-explained and well-justified though…in fact, entire organizations have flourished through perfecting these justifications. The devotion to the Bible is, by far, my favorite example of justifying belief in something other than reality itself.

Justifications for worshiping The Bible
It is the word of God
It is followed by thousands of people
It is older than any other book

I want to look at these 3 basic justifications for a moment because they pop up so often as a last-defense of the devoutly religious.

(1) It is the word of God…this is true, the Bible is in fact the word of God. But then again so is everything else.
Most religious reasoning falters here because the religious often claim to believe in God who is the creator of All without realizing that ALL has to be created out of God. This is the only thing that makes any type of sense because before there was an ALL there was only God (who created ALL). ALL had to be made of something obviously and since there was only God it therefore must be made of God.
This reasoning makes a tremendous amount of sense but unfortunately hits a very core fear. If God is everything…every action, object, and person then God is not “up there” somewhere but rather right here…aware of everything that happens, everything you think, and everything you do. Quite literally, you can no longer hide behind your justifications because obviously “God” is also aware of those. You are Naked and constantly in contact with “God” because You are actually it.

(2) It is followed by thousands of people. This is also true but a very poor reason to follow/worship anything. Quite literally this is exactly the same as saying “If everyone jumped off a bridge so would I.”

(3) It is older than any other book. Often this particular justification is used in combination with number 2 as a way of validating the Bible as a form of worship. To anyone who has researched the origin of worldwide religions this is immediately seen as a blatant fallacy….there are many texts older than the Bible. In fact, the Bible itself wasn’t originally a book at all…it was a collection of stories passed by word-of-mouth between people who were attempting to understand what life was all about. These people are often referred to as Gnostics (Note: Gnosis means Self-Knowledge). It wasn’t until over 100 years after the death of Christ that these stories were written down, sifted through, and organized according to someones idea of what knowledge should be passed on and followed and what knowledge should not.

Justifications are only used for one reason…to avoid letting go of a belief that makes you feel secure and allows you to pass off responsibility. While the Bible is certainly a wonderful collection of stories, those stories actually revolve around ideas that the act of worshipping the Bible contradicts. I’ll just use one of the 4 gospels from the New testament as an example.

Examples.
God is actually the driving force behind both Good and Evil…judgement is not possible.
Matthew 5:43 “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous”

True prayer is not found through books or in churches…it is a personal internal conversation that should not be used as proof of your connection.
Matthew 6:5 “When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men”

There are no “others” to judge…it is always yourself you are judging.
Matthew 7:1 “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard and measure, it will be measured to you”

Instead of following Jesus one should look at HOW he understood what he understood. Not through memorization of other peoples ideas…but through your own inner knowledge.
Matthew 7:28 “When Jesus had finished these words, the crowds were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching as one having authority, and not as their scribes”

Consciousness (God) is what speaks through us, the ego is simply a mask.
Matthew 10:20 “For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your father who speaks in you”

“God” is right in front of us but we spend so much time “worshipping” what was said that we do not see what is actually being said in the now. Return to the “I” and you will see.
Matthew 13:14

You will keep on hearing, but you will not understand
You will keep on seeing, but will not perceive
For the heart of this people has become dull
With their ears they scarcely hear
And they have closed their eyes
Otherwise they would see with their eyes
hear with their ears
And understand with their heart and return
And I would heal them

Absolute connection to God only requires a lack of doubt in that connection. This lack of doubt cannot be found through other peoples words or even the writings in a book (why would you be looking there if you didn’t doubt?)…it simply requires faith in yourself.
Matthew 14:28 “Peter said to him, ‘Lord if it is You, command me to You on the water’
And he said ‘Come!’ And Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink he cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’
Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and took hold of him and said to him ‘You of little faith, why did you doubt?'”

Those who worship and teach the writings of others are not following God they are following their own inner need to hide from themselves.
Matthew 15:7 “You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah Prophesy of you:

‘This people honors me with their lips,
But their heart is far away from me
But in vain do they worship me
Teaching as doctrines the precepts of men'”

In believing we are human we limit ourselves and, by our own choice, condemn ourselves to a limited experience of needs and wants. As the “self” we surpass any limitation and all things become possible.
Matthew 19:24 “‘Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.’
When the disciples heard this, they were astonished and said ‘Then who can be saved?’
And look at them Jesus said to them, ‘With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible'”

Heaven is here and now and not something to be waited for after death because death itself is an illusion and not within “God”
Matthew 22:32 “He is not the God of the dead but of the living”

There are only 2 things we should do….which is actually 1 thing. Be yourself fully and without doubt (accept who you are) and realize that everything is You.
Matthew 22:37 “And he said to them ‘You shall love the lord Your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and will all your mind.’ This is the greatest and foremost commandment. The second is like it ‘You shall love your neighbor as Yourself.'”

Do not follow those who wish to create a religion and place themselves above others in the name of “God”
Matthew 23:5 “But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the tassels of their garments”

Do not be a teacher for that is just a definition of the Ego. Instead simply be Yourself as everyone and no-one. Christ was not trying to teach, he was trying to be an example of the self. To him, “Christ” was just a word for the “Self” just as “Buddha-nature” was for Buddha.
Matthew 23:8 “But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your teacher, and you are all brothers. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your father; He who is in Heaven. Do not be called leaders; for One is your leader, that is, Christ

The New Testament is nothing more than the story of someone who truly spoke As

God rather than as one who worships a concept called “God”. The sayings of this particular person were never meant to be worshipped, they were meant to be looked at as messages from yourself. Christ did not want people to “worship him”, he wanted them to “follow him” down the narrow path…the path that nobody walks because it requires absolute faith, absolute responsibility, and absolute death of the ego.
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

The message of the Bible is beautiful hidden in the most intricate way possible. It is not hidden in Codes, It is not hidden in words…it is hidden by our perception. The things that Jesus said are not understandable in the perception of Separation…as a “person” we cannot understand, but as “One” it makes total sense. God is no longer something that cannot be understood…it is absolute understanding.

The First commandment, when viewed in Unity, makes a great deal more sense when you realize that You wrote it.

You shall have no other gods before Me
