My beliefs are valid and truthful to me from my studies and mostly from my experiences in my life. I believe that Jesus was the Christ; as were others throughout history. However, he was the one being who ascended in complete Oneness with God by transcending death.
He was born, loved, taught and died. He told us what he did we would do and greater. He referred to us as gods (small ‘g’; John 10:34). 1st Corinthians 3:16 states, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
The Spirit of Godlives within each one of us and it is up to us to follow the path to Oneness with God that Jesus demonstrated. Not by worshiping the man Yeshua, a.k.a. Jesus, but by allowing the Christ to anoint you with the consciousness of eternal life. His message was one of living in peace; understanding one another; living in joy and sharing Divine love everlasting. He knew what we needed to know in order to live in the truth. Yet, we failed to listen and continue to fail because we worship the man Jesus and NOT the Christ that is within each and every one of us!
How do we do this? By loving God, our neighbors and ourselves unconditionally, we allow the Spirit of God to guide our steps in actualizing the purpose that Godhas for our lives. Choosing to live in peace and expressing that peace into your world brings about mutual understanding. Mutual understanding lifts the veil of fear and allows us to experience Divine joy. Divine joy allows us experience Divine love to the fullest.
People keep looking for God outside of themselves and will NEVER find it. Why? Because the outside world reflects the projection of Divine love from within. Until we all go within and experience that which is pure, perfect and timeless, we will keep looking for what we believe God is and NOT what the Divine truly is. It is like the man who spent his whole life searching away from his home for diamonds only for them to be found on his property after he died in search of them. He had acres of diamonds under his feet the entire time but could not see them; so in his mind, they were not there.
I stopped searching for God when I realized that I AM that, I am. God is within me, God loves me and God created me. Anything that distracts my focus from these intuitive facts needs to be discarded. I and my Father are ONE! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
