The self is God, projected as an individual through the construct of mind. Perception creates the illusion of separation, thus enticing God’s individually focused awareness to re-create the ‘original sin’ – belief that separation is real.
The self is totally comprised of thought, thus the one who thinks they are a self lives according to the limitations created by the doubts they hold for their self. In this way, self identified individuals become more doubtful as they accumulate life experience.
A habit of doubt is created and perpetuated by resisting aka judging and repressing doubt, while embracing doubt as it arises leads to its resolution – not because anything was done, but because detached awareness naturally resolves the subconscious foundation of whatever dissonant thought pattern is being observed.
Instead of allowing doubt, the ego may scream that one ‘should’ use faith to replace doubt, but ‘should’ itself is the language of doubt. It’s all God, and ‘should’ says that something about God needs to be ‘fixed’.
Trying to limit doubt by covering it with faith is really repression. In this way, the shadow of doubt expands in the subconscious and projects doubtful experiences thus reinforcing the illusion of separation – which is the source of all dis-ease.
In the moment one remembers ‘who they are’, doubt immediately disappears. However, remembrance cannot occur while doubt is present because the foundation of doubt is belief in separation. Acceptance bridges the gap, and allows remembrance to ‘happen’.
A person is a vehicle for spirit to have a physical experience in a material world. God is existence itself, and is thus every person and everything in existence – not to be reduced to a person, people or specific spiritual entities.
God created the material world and everything in it order to experience different aspects of its Self for the purpose of creating harmony within the illusion of separation – thereby expanding God’s energy into infinity. Humans are the leading edge of God’s creation because the mind allows us to very specifically create our reality while directing energy to our source.
Many organized religions tend to view humans as only carnal and separate from God, which provides mental comfort while perpetuating the perceived need for the religious organization itself. But in reality humans are infused with God, and we have the choice in any moment to align our awareness with the Godly perspective of unity or with the mental perspective of separation.
In raising our consciousness, it’s the ego (or self image) that is given over in service to God, but the root of the human or the Self is the treasure to be attained by our awareness. To declare independence from God is to become dependent on our will and people or things in the world. This is NOT what being Self directed is about.
Specifically, our will, our minds and our bodies are tools for the soul to refine itself to a higher vibratory frequency. These material aspects glorify God when we direct them from the pure Love perspective of the energy that creates them.
Every person has full access to the power of God in equal measure. The separation we see is due to perception through the prism of mind, which causes people to believe that God is “out there” instead if “in here”.
We are not even separate from one another. We are one, and we are God.
From the standpoint of individuality, made possible by our minds in this time-space experience, God is seated at the center of each person. Jesus understood this and did his best to deliver the message to people who could not understand.
To this day, most people read Jesus’ words through the construct of mind, which causes them to completely miss the message. Jesus was a person who aligned the energy of his material awareness with that of the Divine Self.
Christ consciousness is an energetic resonance that is already part of everyone. It constantly calls us to align with it, and we can commune with that energy by consistently aligning our thoughts with our deepest truths.
We are here to be Self centered with the understanding that our highest Self is existence, and that we are focused through a unique, individual mind and body. Seeking mental comfort from the perspective of subjection (perceiving God as ruling from outside of Self) separates us from Jesus, God, Allah or whatever name we prefer to attach to that which is nameless.
It is our thoughts and feelings that create in this reality, and once we understand how to direct them from the perspective of Self instead of mind, we can realize what Jesus meant by the “Kingdom of Heaven”.
