When do you enter the Kingdom? When is the resurrection? Who enters?

I'll let RUMI answer this first part. Even Rumi waits.

“Within us are many things. There is mouse in us, and there is bird. The bird carries the cage upwards, while the mouse drags it down. A hundred thousand different wild beasts are together within us, but they are all converging on that moment when the mouse will renounce its mousehood and the bird its birdhood, and all become one. For the goal is neither going up or down. When the goal shows itself clearly, it will be neither above nor below.”

A woman lost something. She looks left and right, in front and behind. Once she has found that thing she no longer searches above and below, left and right, in front or behind. All at once she becomes calm and collected. Similarly, on the resurrection day all people will be of one eye, tongue, ear and understanding.

When ten friends share a garden or a shop in common, they speak as one, they plan as one, and their work is with one thing since their objective is the same. So, on the resurrection day, since the affair of all will be with God, they will all be one. In this world everyone is preoccupied with a separate affair. One is in love with women, one is in love with wealth, another is engaged in acquiring possessions, another in acquiring knowledge.

Everyone believes that their cure, their joy, their pleasure and comfort can be found in that one thing. And that is a Divine mercy, because when they search they cannot find, and so they return. After they have waited a while, they say again, “That joy and pleasure must be looked for. Perhaps I didn’t try hard enough. I will search again.” Then they look again, but still they cannot find their desire.

So they continue, until that time when Truth removes Its veil. Then they know. But God has certain servants who know even before the resurrection.

On that day We shall roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books. As We originated the first creation, so We shall bring it forth again. It is a promise (binding) upon Us. Truly We shall fulfill it (as We promised it). (21:104)

Hebrews 9 (we don't know who wrote it)

27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.


Salvation comes for those who wait on the second return. It is often cited that this verse implies we only live once. In truth, the Jews, Paul, Hindus and even Islam believed in transmigration of the soul. People (more than one) live once. In other words, until the resurrection happens, this mode of vehicle (body) is the Buddha Body we use. It's the human vehicle until it is replaced. Born again into a new person each time. You are much older than the 'I' of this incarnation.

1 Peter 1

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.


Note the timing. Until the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

From the Quran Surah 75


Have they not seen that God, Who created the heavens and the earth and was not wearied by their creation, is able to give life to the dead? Surely He has power over everything. (46:33)

You must realize that the same Abrahamic religion is at work in these words. Paul was a Pharisee, so he believed in the Resurrection, as did Rumi, supported in the Quran. BOTH the righteous (self-righteous) and wicked will be raised. The neutral (no judgment) believer is the one with the highest honor. Neutral / Positive. Why? The Strong force in nature. Neutron (both neg and pos neutralized) surrounding Positive (Proton). Negative (electrons) are the weak force.

Self-righteous and wickedness are one in the same. Neutral is the path of both non-attachment (Buddhism) and no judgment (Christ / the Way). Truth is Love. Jesus was both the Way (East) and the Truth (West) and the Life (two made one).

Neutral is Love (Truth of Pathos). Positive is the Way. Together, then are LIFE. The weak force (yeast / sin) was necessary to break symmetry for a time. Once individuation is complete, the resurrection and completion of our nature as unique creations.
