God Beyond Religion: The Divine Unified Field of Consciousness.

The All is Mind, the Universe is Mental ~ The Kybalion

Quantum mechanics speaks of the unified field in field theory. There is classical field theory and there is a field theory in psychology and sociology. Referring to the Kybalion, there is the law of correspondence that reads as above so below, as below so above, as within so without and as without so within. My point in this is that if we see fields in the material world, then it follows by the law of correspondence that there are spiritual fields, and my view is that spirit and consciousness are one in the same, and so, the mind at large, or the-all is at its basic foundational level a field as well. I would like to call it the divine universal conscious field. It is the creative source of all that is. And, we are all points of consciousness, or conscious agents within the field. In fact, all things in the material world to one degree or another are conscious agents participating in and sustaining ongoing creation.

This blog post took a serendipitous and synchronistic turn as I am writing it. I often post some of my ideas in Facebook groups that I am a member of, and I did for this one on a group called Messy Conversations. It was designed to be a safe place for conversations with people in the process of deconstructing their Christian beliefs. One of the members, a Facebook friend of mine named Dr. Paul Fitzgerald, asked me if I was familiar with Rupert Sheldrake and morphic resonance? I was familiar with Sheldrake but not morphic resonance. In looking it up on the internet, I found that he was speaking of morphic fields in biology. I wasn’t aware of the existence of these fields, but it seems that they connect all kinds of species of both plants and animals including humans. The point was made that because of these connective fields, teaching a trick to a rat in the USA, say at Harvard, would make it much easier to teach the same trick to rats in Europe because of the connection of the fields, and the memories they store. These fields reach everywhere within the species so the memory in the field is picked up by rats in Europe simultaneously. The article went on to explain that these fields exist in a variety of areas including the mind of humans, or in other words, point toward a unified field of human consciousness, and it is easy for me to add to the name, the “divine” unified field of consciousness. This is what I believe to be the creative source of the universe which includes humans such as you and I.

I am no scientist, so I do not have a scientific description of the divine field of consciousness, but I believe I have an intuitive description. It radically changes my view of heaven and what the Apostle Paul called the heavenlies or heavenly places. It is quite likely a two-dimensional field of consciousness. So, when Paul says we are seated in heavenly places in Christ, he is referring to this two-dimensional field of consciousness in which everything that exists, exists. Furthermore, when Paul says that the Colossians were dead, and their life was hidden in God, he meant hidden in the divine field of consciousness or heavenly places. Collective consciousness, another name for the divine unified field of consciousness, is the place where collective memory and information is stored. Our brains are like television receivers of this information and the source of all telepathic ability is stored in this field of consciousness. It continually grows by the life experiences of all of the conscious agents that are connected within this field.

This also radically changes my view of God. This divine unified field of consciousness is not personified. It is all encompassing. The individual conscious agents within the field are the creative source. Jesus was the firstborn of many siblings. He was designated to be the word, of the field of consciousness before creation but, then went on to explain that we all are a part of the divine creative word. This should lead us to new vistas of potentiality. We can indeed change, morph reality through consciousness. With our thoughts we can create reality afresh.

God Beyond Religion: Jesus and The Christ, Re-imagining Salvation

1Ti 4:9-10 “The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance.  (10)  For to this end we toil and struggle because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.”

I have had a relationship with Jesus for much of my life. It began as a small child, continued for about 20 years, there was a 25-year hiatus, and then a re-establishment for an additional 30 years but within that period there was an ongoing growth and change. This is especially true of the last 10 years. I now believe that I am settling in on a viable understanding of Jesus roles. I use the plural roles because I see that Jesus had essentially two main roles or purposes. One was to the first century Jews that is narrated in the synoptic gospels, and the other was to all of humanity in a spiritual sense as explained by the mystical revelation of the apostle Paul. The Acts of the Apostles and John’s gospel were written to bridge the two roles into one grand spiritual one.

 

Don’t confuse what I am presenting as the same as orthodoxy or evangelical orthodoxy. It is very different. It has none of the toxicity associated with evangelical orthodoxy. It does not emphasize hell as I believe the orthodox teaching concerning hell is erroneous and does not properly reflect what is taught in the scripture. I believe it is far more accurately representative of the eternal purpose of his roles. The first departure from orthodoxy or evangelical orthodoxy is that I believe that “the Christ” gave mystical revelation to several groups over the course of human history. This is the eclectic part of this understanding. When I refer to “the Christ” I am speaking of the Spirit of the creative source. It is identified by several names over the centuries. It is referred to as the Logos, the Tao, the Christ, the Spirit of God, It is not exclusively Christian nor Jewish. The fact is that many of the religions that are called poly-theistic really believe in one ultimate, supreme, creative source. Jesus on the other hand was a human born into a specific time and culture with a universal timeless message from “the Christ.”

 

So, what is the overarching message to humanity from Jesus’ time on earth? How is Jesus the savior of all people and what is meant by especially those who believe? Well, I am confident that it is not salvation from sins. That was the mission of the first role of Jesus as the savior of the Jews. They had the most evolved concept of sin and sinfulness. Their Hebrew word for sin, chata simply meant missing the way. They had developed an elaborate structure to define what missing the way meant, and I think that Jesus came to correct that notion by amplifying their concept of the Law. He came to show that it was a guideline that would make for a more humane humanity, but they had developed it into a code that would make them righteous. In this role he showed them that they would always perpetually miss the way.

 

For the more universal role revealed to Paul the mystic, I think it is constructive to look at what savior meant in the first century. The answer is found in the Pax Romana. Pax Romana is the golden age of Rome. It spans from Caesar Augustus to Marcus Aurelius. In terms of years and time it is from 27 BCE to about 180 CE. It is roughly a 200-year span. It is descriptive of a period of peace. The emperor was considered a savior, sotor Greek, because he brought peace to the people.

 

Jesus came to declare peace for humanity with God. He came to a time and a culture that was fearful of God and the afterlife. By the time of Jesus earthly mission, the Jews had developed an elaborate view of the afterlife that included Gehenna and Gan Eden. Gehenna was a time of fiery judgment, the Pharisees reasoned that it would last for three years. Gan Eden was similar to the Christian idea of heaven. The Roman world was influenced by the various Greek views of the afterlife including many levels of the underworld. Paul wrote this in the letter to the Romans. Rom 5:1  Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, Jesus taught that he was the incarnation of the logos or God consciousness, and went on to teach that we are also the incarnation of the Logos. This is the importance of Jesus of Nazareth. He also exemplified the love of God, and his sermon on the mount described a way to be more human, and it was not intended to be a legal code, understood in a legal constitutional way.


The “Christ” or “Christ Consciousness” as it is sometime called is the most effective once peace with God is established as fact. While some may not need it, those who were taught toxic Christianity need it for sure. Especially if they are to participate in their birth right which is the divine nature. If we put the toxicity behind us, we can advance into our natural spiritual inheritance. This is not the same as saying Jesus is the only way. There are for sure others, and some of the religions are far less toxic than Christianity has become, but, to understand the real message of Jesus and the definition of God and love by Paul and John adds a richness to any spirituality and affords new insight to those of other beliefs that may become eclectic as well. This is what is meant by saying “and especially to those who believe.” There are mystical revelatory truths in Christianity found in no other place.

God Beyond Religion: Faith, Mental Alchemy, Positive Thinking and Prayer

"What ever the mind can conceive, and believe it can achieve" ~ Napoleon Hill.

There are many different groups who dogmatically teach that one can change circumstances by thinking. The word of faith movement, the secular motivation movement, the law of attraction advocates, mental alchemy groups, and metaphysical groups immediately come to mind. Further, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that it works. However, one also needs to consider the many that have been strewn along the way that have not experienced the axiom of Napoleon Hill. This is true of each of the movements mentioned above and many more that I have not mentioned. In the word of faith movement, people are told that they just don't have enough faith, in the law of attraction movement they are told that they are not properly believing and that they have just not cleared away the mental roadblocks and on and on. Sometimes they are told they have not done enough shadow work or self work. In all of these cases, those who do not achieve the desired results are blamed. Is that legitimate? I do not believe it is!

Two different examples from the bible:

Acts 3:6-7  "But Peter said, "I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk."  (7)  And he took him by the right hand and raised him up; and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong."

And...

Luke 8:48  "He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace."

In the two verses posted above there is a difference. In the Acts passage, it was Peter's faith that healed the man, and in the passage from Luke it was the woman's faith. In the Acts passage it is not mentioned that the man even had heard of Jesus. Further, he was not asking to be healed; he was asking for money. One thing that needs to be highlighted is that all of the above methods of positive mentalism can cause psychological trauma for people and quite often it does. In this way all of the above can be toxic and abusive. So often it ends with blaming the victim.

So, what is missing? Does positive mentalism work? To answer the second question first, yes indeed positive mentalism works. New findings and studies in cognitive science points toward the fact that the universe is as the Kybalion says, mental. This is also being substantiated by quantum theory. Science is moving closer and closer to the understanding that the material world is a virtual reality construction. Back to the first question, what is missing?

My answer is as follows: The possible answer can be found in many if not all of the religious traditions of the world. For example, in Christianity it is taught that the word of God, is the creative source. This means that God’s consciousness, spoken is the creative force and is the source of word of faith teaching and believing. This is based on the fact that Jesus claimed to be the word or God consciousness incarnate. It did not stop there however, he went on to teach that we too are the word incarnate, and that the works that he did we too would be able to do. By works he meant the miraculous. This concept is backed up by the teachings of Hermetica, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism. All of those beliefs make room for our individual soul and consciousness to be instrumental in creation of the world circumstances.

In recent cognitive studies conducted by Dr. Donald Hoffman and his students, he has hypothesized that we are all conscious agents that act together to create the reality around us. This would certainly seem to back up Napoleon Hills axiom. Yet and still, so many are unsuccessful in creating the reality they desire. So, what could cause that?

Perhaps it is not distinguishing between the temporal and the eternal. Our material existence is temporal and finite. Our eternal existence is infinite and not temporal at all. But, if we are each conscious points within the universal consciousness, then each of us are divine. If we are divine, then it seems logical that we have divine free will. What if it is our divinity that chooses our life path, experiences, lessons etc.? What if we indeed choose our goals in incarnating? What if we sometimes limit our mental alchemy abilities for reasons that we cannot comprehend on the temporal plane but are none the less very important in our eternal goals and process? This would eliminate the self-blame as we are completely in charge of our entire eternal destiny. It puts it outside of the realm of God choosing something for our good and puts it directly in the realm of us choosing something for our good.

In this way it all comes down to our free will and free choices within the framework of an eternal mental reality that periodically experiences the temporal material world for specific pre-determined purposes? This is the idea that I have settled on and makes the most sense to me.

God Beyond Religion: New Humanity, New Earth, and New Heaven and the age of Aquarius

Isaiah 65:17  For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.

Ephesians 2:15  He has abolished the law with its commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new humanity in place of the two, thus making peace,

Revevlation 21:1  Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.

Are you familiar with fractals? They are recurring patterns in nature. Likewise, there are cycles everywhere. So much of material reality is cyclic. Now consider the hermetic law of correspondence, as above so below and as below so above. It follows that prophecies are cyclical and resemble fractals. This is true of the new humanity, the new heaven, and the new earth. Isaiah wrote in the age of Aries seven hundred years before the age of Pisces began. Paul wrote at the beginning of the age of Pisces. It would be easy to assume that they were writing about the age of Pisces, and they were, but I believe they were also looking forward to the age of Aquarius, thus the reference to fractals.

While the new humanity did refer to those who would embrace the Christ in the age of Pisces, it was also prophetic of the continual upward spiral movement of humanity in general, and of shifts in human consciousness from age to age. We have just begun the age of Aquarius and there is a shift taking place that will alter humanity greatly over the next couple of centuries provided we do not experience a global catastrophic or cataclysmic event. I mention that because it is possible that in ages past, we had advanced civilizations that disappeared because of a global event. The story of Atlantis comes to mind, and Graham Hancock has some persuasive answers about it, but alas, that is another story.

The focus here is on the new heaven and earth, the new Jerusalem, and most of all the new humanity. According to all of the articles I have read about the age of Aquarius, it is an age that can elevate humanity to truly a kinder, gentler state. Slowly it is unfolding and to a great degree the current upheaval is merely the growing pains of the transition. It is natural to be fearful of change and so the age of Pisces is clinging on in the hearts and minds of the older generation especially. I am a part of that generation, a baby boomer but as we age, we will grow smaller and smaller in number and influence.

The age to come is one that will promote harmony and altruism for real. I believe that we will find that the universe has sufficient supply for all people and the zero-sum game can be replaced by universal abundance. The age of Aquarius will be an age that adopts and develops the great teachings of the Sermon on the Mount, the Tao, and Buddhism. It has the potential to become the age where the golden rule is really a rule. It can be an age where it will be possible to love our enemy and by that, I mean love the other. It is an age that was predicted by the Mayan civilization and many esoteric prophets like Edgar Cayce. It will be an age where humanity in general will focus on their divinity and begin to connect in a new way with collective consciousness the source of creativity and creation. I believe that the shift will be so great as to actually cause a shift in our DNA. I will likely not live to see this come into fruition, but not too distant generations will. My grandchildren and great grandchildren will see it more fully. All of this is provided that those of us who feel the impending shift embrace it and push it forward. The way we can do that is in raising our vibration to closer to love. We can begin to love our neighbor as ourselves, and in order to have that be beneficial, we will need to develop genuine self-love. We need to leave the deceptive beliefs of the age of Pisces, realizing that they served humanities advancement to this point. It will take effort on our part but I am optimistic that humanity in general is up to the challenge.

I look forward to the dawning of the age of the “new humanity” in the “new earth!”

God Beyond Religion: Worshipping in Spirit and in Truth

Gen 1:2  Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

John 4:23-24  But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such as these to worship him.  (24)  God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

 

What is the nature of the creative source, God? According to Jesus and the author of Genesis, the creative source, God is Spirit. In Genesis the Hebrew word translated as spirit is ruach and it means the sacred breath. It is the source of life, or in other words, the life-giving breath. It is the breath, wind that produces material substance. So then, according to Jesus and the author of Genesis God is Spirit. What is the nature of breath and wind? It is movement of air, but it cannot be seen. It can only be seen by its effects. For example, on a cold winter day in Michigan, one can see the breath when the warmness of the air meets with the cold air temperatures, and it is visible as moving steam. Or, at a birthday party, when the honoree blows out the candle one can see the movement of the flame until it goes out and then one can see it move the remaining smoke. Likewise, if one is outside on a windy day, one can see the leaves move on the trees as a result of the unseen wind, or if one is in an arid place once can see the dust blow around by virtue of the wind. However, one cannot really see the breath or the wind as it is first and foremost an invisible force.

 

Let’s see what other religious traditions say about the nature of God. “The Tao that can be understood is not the eternal, cosmic Tao, just as an idea that can be expressed in words is the source of all spirit and matter; expressing itself, it is the mother of all created things.  Not to desire material things is to know the freedom of spirituality; and to desire them is to suffer the limitations of matter.  Yet these two things, matter and spirit, so different in nature, have the same origin.  This unity is the mystery of mysteries, and the gateway to spirituality.”  ~Lao Tzu. Tao Te Ching.  Ancient Renewal. Kindle Edition. Here you have Lao Tzu, in 500 BCE stating that the source of all creation is both spiritually and materially is the Tao, expressing itself. "The Spirit of the perennial spring is said to be immortal. She is called the Mysterious One.  The Mysterious One is the source of the universe. She is continually, endlessly giving forth life, without effort." ~Lao Tzu. Tao Te Ching . Ancient Renewal. Kindle Edition. Here you have Lao Tzu stating that the Tao is ever creating spiritually, and this is stated in the Hermetica as well, quoted below. 

 

Turning to the Hermetica, an ancient Egyptian writing from at least 5,000 BCE, or over 7,000 years ago stating this. Here is an excerpt from the book by Tim Freke and Peter Gandy entitled “The Hermetica, the Wisdom of the Ancient Pharoahs.” “God is Oneness. Everything is a part of one Supreme Being. Like the number one, which is the source of all subsequent numbers, God is the source of all. Yet just as when the number one is divided or multiplied by itself it remains one, so God constantly remains the Oneness. Because he unites every thing, his nature is paradoxical. He is the creator who creates himself. He is always hidden from us, yet he is also the world around us. He has no particular name, because all names refer to him. God is the Supreme Mind. He is everywhere and always. The human mind is an image of the Supreme Mind. Through the power of the imagination it can roam the universe and be, like God, in all times and all places. Hermes tells us that if we truly understood the extraordinary power of the human mind, we would then know the nature of God. Everything exists as an idea within the Mind of God. He creates all things, in the same way that our own minds create thoughts. Just as the nature of mind is to think, so the nature of God is to create. This is not something he did at the beginning of time. He is doing it continuously. God is 'constantly creating creation', and will never stop.” The Hermetica, the Wisdom of the Ancient Pharaohs, Freke Tim, Freke Publishing page 31. 

In the chapter cited here you can find the actual writings of Hermes on this subject but it is too long to insert here. It is found in the chapter III “The Being of Atum.” Atum is the name that Hermes gave the one supreme creative source of all that is. Further, in the Egyptian tradition Hermes is really the Egyptian Thoth. The point here is that even religions that are accused of polytheism have one supreme creative source. All point to the fact that this one supreme creative source is a parent, is spirit and is absolute truth. One of two things are true here. Either Jesus and Lao Tzu received mystical revelation about the nature of God or they were familiar with the Hermetica. I personally believe, they received mystical revelation.

God Beyond Religion: The Three Voices of the Apostle Paul

Modern scholarship has rightly determined that not all the letters attributed to Paul were likely written by Paul. That is "much ado about nothing" in my view. What is more important in rightly understanding Paul is to be able to discern the three voices of Paul. Now there may be more but these three are the most obvious in my view. There is Paul the mystic, Paul the rabbi, and Paul the clerical apologist. For me, Paul the mystic is the only voice worth listening too. This is precisely the reason that humanity is given the Holy Spirit. It is to be able to discern mystical revelatory truth from God.

Paul the Mystic:

Paul the mystic is the Paul that was blinded on the Damascus road. Paul the mystic is the Paul that was taken in a vision to the third heaven. Paul the mystic is the Paul that wrote to the one new humanity. Paul the mystic is the Paul that wrote of universal reconciliation. Paul the mystic is the one who wrote about a plan that was set in motion before creation. Paul the mystic is the one who knew the universal Christ or Christ consciousness. Paul the mystic showed that the Messiah had a spiritual ministry to all humanity. Here is an example of Paul the mystic: 2Co 5:18-19  All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation;  (19)  that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. God reconciled the entire cosmos to himself which surely includes every human being. It should be easily discerned what voice is Paul the mystic. In order to discern Paul the mystic, one needs to listen to the Spirit that was promised to guide one into all truth. 

A second example of Paul the mystic is this: 2Co 4:18  because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal. Paul the mystic here describes the invisible world that is the true nature of reality. It is spiritual and pure consciousness. Paul here is describing the esoteric nature of reality in metaphysical terms.

Another example of Paul the mystic is as follows: Col 1:23-27  if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.  (24)  Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.  (25)  I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness—  (26)  the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord's people.  (27)  To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. This passage explains in detail the gospel and it equates the gospel with the word of God, meaning that for Paul, the phrase word of God was synonymous with the gospel. What was the gospel? That Christ is in each person. It is Christ in YOU!

Paul the Rabbi:

Paul the rabbi is the source of the schizophrenia found in all of his writings. Paul would show multiple personalities in his writing. Paul the rabbi would throw shade on the mystical revelation of Paul the mystic because he was afraid that his mystical revelation would do irrevocable harm to the law and in that he was conflicted. An example of Paul the rabbi is his many "God forbid" comments. When it was revealed to him that grace trumps sin, the rabbi said "should we sin so grace may abound? God forbid!" In that statement Paul the rabbi did violence to the mystical revelation he received. The concept that sin trumps grace, leads to a new understanding of God that develops love for God that results in self control when grace is truly understood and believed. Paul the rabbi never gave the mystical revelation of Paul the mystic a chance.

Paul the Clergy Apologist:

Paul the clergy apologist is a pseudo Paul from a later period that tried to use Paul's authority to establish a clerical hierarchy. However, in that capacity this pseudo Paul also interspersed the mystical teachings of Paul in his writing. The pastorals fall into this category. During the first and second century it was common for one to write in the name of a revered authority. And example of Paul the clergy apologist is this: 1Ti 2:12-15  I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she is to keep silent.  (13)  For Adam was formed first, then Eve;  (14)  and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.  (15)  Yet she will be saved through childbearing, provided they continue in faith and love and holiness, with modesty. This was very likely not taught by Paul although it may have have been by Paul the rabbi. It is most definitely not mystical revelation from the creative source.

The Bottom Line:

Paul the mystic received revelation about the New Humanity, the body of Christ, the fact that the Christ indwells humanity, the fact that there is no wall of separation, no favoritism on the part of God. There is no distinction between male and female when it comes to God's love. It is pointed out by John in his gospel that the purpose of the Holy Spirit is to give discernment, and to clarify teaching. It does not matter that Paul did not write everything his name is attached too. Nor, is it important to adhere to everything that his name was attached too in perpetuity. What is important is to spiritually recognize the mystical revelation Paul received especially the definition of love and the description of the fruit of the spirit. It is far less important who wrote it and much more important what was written.

God Beyond Religion: The Ultimate Big Brother

Colossians 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation;

There is no doubt that Colossians 1:15-23 is referring to the Logos, the Word of God. The image of the invisible God is of necessity consciousness. When it said the firstborn of all creation, it means exactly what was stated in the Hermetica. "My Guide asked: 'Do you understand the secrets of this vision? I am that Light — the Mind of God, which exists before the chaotic dark waters of potentiality. My calming Word is the Son of God — the idea of beautiful order; the harmony of all things with all things. Primal Mind is parent of the Word, just as, in your own experience, your human mind gives birth to speech. They cannot be divided, one from the other, for life is the union of Mind and Word. Now, fix your attention upon the Light, and become One with it." [Freke, Tim. The Hermetica: The Lost Wisdom of the Pharaohs (p. 33). Tim Freke Publications. Kindle Edition.] However, Jesus was the first to claim that he was the Logos/Word incarnate. This in my view makes him very special indeed and thereby big brother to all of humanity. Now while I will not contend that all need to acknowledge Jesus as such, I will say that there is a definite benefit for those who come to know and understand him in this light.

He taught the apostle John that as Jesus was in the world so are we humans. What exactly does that mean? Well, it means that we too are the Logos/Word incarnate, and that as such we are the daughters and sons of God. The verse in Colossians written at the beginning of this post states that Jesus, the Christ is the image of the invisible God. That means that like God we are consciousness. One cannot see consciousness; one can only see or hear what consciousness produces. To add to this idea, the Old Testament in the first chapter of Genesis says that God, the creative source, created humanity in his own image. It is probably more accurate to say in its own image as consciousness is neither male nor female. Within in it is both genders. But since the bible says in his image, it will be sufficient to say the same. The reality is that God the creative source is androgynous, a parent that is both mother and father.

Looking at Jesus as the ultimate big brother, gives an inciteful look into how I view him and the relationship I have with him. A big brother is a caring, loving, close friend. A big brother watches out and protects his younger siblings. A big brother acts as a teacher. A big brother sets an example. In all of these traits Jesus is the ultimate big brother. I have experienced that he is a friend that actually sticks closer than a brother. I have received a wealth of positive information from him over the years. His teachings are truly timeless, and during his earthly sojourn he set the ultimate example of loving. But according to the apostle Paul or one of his students he is also a mediator between God and humanity. I believe this to be true and receive comfort from it. It is not necessary that all see it that way. I can also mediate on my own behalf being the incarnate word of God as well. It depends on what you’re comfortable with.

There is a sense in which I know that Jesus is my higher self. That is, the Christ is our higher self. The Christ is the true mediator and source of all mystical revelation. I certainly have a mystical bent and receive multiple spiritual downloads via mystical channels. I am writing this because I want to let some people know that one can be radically spiritually awakened and still maintain a relationship with Jesus. People can suggest that Jesus is just my imaginary friend, and I am not offended, but I know that he is more than that. I am not saying that I feel the need to evangelize the world to get them to see it my way. I merely want to encourage anyone on a path of deconstruction who feels a close affinity to Jesus need not feel pressure to abandon that relationship thinking it primitive or a show of lack of spiritual knowledge.
