Jesus said time and time again, 'the Kingdom is at hand.' A major thing repeated in the New Testament, is that the Kingdom of Heaven is coming, it
is immanent. And yet, this was all said 2,000 years ago. For many, this just disproves all of it. Of course, since this is an obvious thing,
Christians have their ideas on what he meant, why this doesn't disprove anything. However, I think it is something worth thinking about. Now, really
the idea I am getting at is beyond Christianity, it's just the most obvious system to reference in this context.
I think that the Kingdom, perfect reality, is imminent, in just the same way it was 2,000 years ago. I think that time is a sort of illusion which
traps our minds and keeps it from actualizing the Kingdom. Themes of worldly existence endlessly repeat. The Kingdom will never be actualized in time.
This is why Jesus repeatedly stressed, not having any thought for the world whatsoever. He basically stated an inverse relationship between the world
and heaven, flesh and spirit. The more of your mind's energy is wrapped up in the world, the less it is in spirit, the further it is away from
realizing the Kingdom. I think that each and every one of us is the Son, we are all Christ. But we are not aware, so we are of the world. In this
world, suffering is a reality. Suffering is a major part of the illusion which keeps our minds in the world.
The Kingdom is always at hand, but is never actualized. I think the story of Jesus is a sort of metaphor, of the process whereby the Self actualizes
the Kingdom, or the perception of a perfect abode for the Self. The world is a drama which endlessly repeats, until the Kingdom is actualized. And the
Kingdom is actualized just by our minds totally detaching from the world. This means concern with worldly things, as well as all discrimination, in
terms of scaling things from good to bad, as well as identification of separate objects. There is the world and the Kingdom. The world is in time, the
Kingdom is out of time. They are both of a single nature. The world, however, has the illusion of changing, because its objects are constantly
changing. And yet it has only one nature, which we do not recognize it due to the illusion, which is the shifting of specifics, thinking things are
changing but they never do. And it endlessly repeats, until we detach from it. And when we detach from it, we are born again, and it is then that we
actualize the Kingdom.
