"Two thousand years ago, when the process of the expression of My Idea had reached the stage where I could show forth some of My Divine Reality, in order to do this and to recall to My human Attributes their mission on earth, it became necessary to express through a human personality and to manifest in a human form My Divine Attributes, so their human minds and intellects could see and remember and be inspired by Me within to let My Idea similarly express through and manifest in their human
personalities.

This I did through the personality of Jesus, the man of Galilee, picturing to the human understanding by My Teachings given through Him, and by My Life manifested by Him, what was necessary in order to express fully My Divine Idea.

I showed, by the experiences of a symbolic nature through which I caused His human personality I created for such purpose to pass, what all personalities must pass through before you, My human Attributes, who created these personalities, can again become Impersonal enough to be conscious expressors with Me of My Divine Idea."

"All of you, My human Attributes, before the I AM within can awaken your human minds to a
realization of Me, your Divine Self must be born of a Virgin Love in a humble manger -- the place
where the cattle come to feed (the humble and contrite heart filled with faith and trust in God, to which state the human or animal nature must come). You must then be taken into Egypt, the land of darkness (or intellectual activity), there to grow and thrive in body and understanding until you become strong with the feeling of Me within. Then, when you are sufficiently conscious of My Power and My Love, will I begin to speak through you words of Wisdom and Truth, which will confound the learned of the world, even the Doctors of the Law. Then will follow a long period of study and meditation, which ripens the mind and develops the Soul, until you arrive at full maturity of the I AM Consciousness within, and which prepare you for your baptism in the Jordan, when you will be opened completely to Me, to the full consciousness that You and I are One, that there is no separation, that I AM your Real Self; and I AM henceforth permitted wholly to direct your lives.

I then lead you out into the world, called in My other Revelation the Wilderness, there to try you and make you strong and to accustom you to the Impersonal use of My Divine Attributes I bring to you three great Temptations of Power, Self-Righteousness, and Money, until you have proven that nothing of the intellect, nothing of the self, nothing from without, can tempt you to forget Me within, and that My Voice and Mine alone, whether speaking in you heart or in the hearts of your brothers, is the only Voice you are now capable of hearing."

*** The entire read is fairly long, but check it out and add any thoughts if you'd like.

Interesting take on things.

It is steeped in religious iconography which can be useful at times. I personally have no use for religious iconography but, in a sense, the sentiments resonate.

Oh and don't you know thats my taste. :mrgreen:

Thing is, there are no teachings out there that can't be steeped in religious
iconography while still remaining what they are, or the meanings that
are meant to be coneyed. So tell me, what is the difference?
And why do some try to seperate what is not even seperated?
Its out there with most "modern" spiritualists, wanting to seperate their
messages from religious iconography, when the foundation of meanings
conveyed are no where near superior insight or knowledge, and yet
many would like it to be passed off as exactly that.

Some entirely unaware of their true relation to the Truth, many have
not even grown up in many spiritual truths that have already been given
thousands of years ago, and yet today they come up with stuff in their minds
that surpasses, with their Universal Understandings.... some I find truth in and other
times I can't help but crack up, and wonder what in the hell people out there
are doing. Thats just the clown side of me I guess. :mrgreen:

Although alot of what was in this writing did resonate with me as well, yes.
Thought it was a good read.

More to come...but like one thing is the writing implies that there is a schism between diving reality and otherwise, as well as "your divine self" and otherwise, kind of strikes me as being similar to higher self and lower self.

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice piece of writing, and a lot can be learned from it.

Yes I agree, and I partially found it quite impersonal of Christ, so I'm sure in some sense, we sifted through it fairly similar. 😉 :mrgreen: :geek: lol

Yeah I'm sure I'll glance through it a couple times,
There truly is some great insight in the
writing, yes there is. But how many times is there a reference to an
impersonal "My Idea, My Idea". Some of the choice of words and contexts are far
more repetitive than need be wouldn't you say.

Any parts of the writing that stood out to you?
