The dualistic mind see's everything that is beyond body as a seperate entity to itself.
Thing is I doubt that the non dualistic mind can be grasped by dualistic mind.
“My food is for me to do the will of him that sent me and to finish his work.”—JOHN 4:34.
THE setting in which Jesus said the above words reveals much about the focus of his life. Jesus and his disciples had been traveling all morning through the hilly country of Samaria. (John 4:6, footnote) Thinking that Jesus must be hungry by now, the disciples offered him some food. (John 4:31-33) In his reply, Jesus summed up his purpose in life. To him, doing God’s work was more important than eating. In both word and deed, Jesus lived to do God’s will for him. What did this include?
Preaching and teaching about God’s Kingdom
The Bible explains Jesus’ lifework, saying: “He went around throughout the whole of Galilee, teaching . . . and preaching the good news of the kingdom.” (Matthew 4:23) Jesus did not simply preach, or proclaim, God’s Kingdom to others. He also taught people—that is, he instructed, explained, and convinced by sound reasoning. The Kingdom was the theme of Jesus’ message.
Throughout his ministry, Jesus taught his listeners what God’s Kingdom is and what it will do. Note the following truths about the Kingdom, along with the Scriptural citations that give us Jesus’ words on the subject.
- God’s Kingdom is a heavenly government, and Jesus is the one whom Jehovah has appointed as King.—MATTHEW 4:17; JOHN 18:36.
- The Kingdom will sanctify God’s name and cause his will to be done on earth as in heaven.—MATTHEW 6:9, 10.
- Under the rule of God’s Kingdom, the entire earth will be transformed into a paradise.—LUKE 23:42, 43.
- God’s Kingdom will soon come and carry out God’s will for the earth. *—MATTHEW 24:3, 7-12.
Revealing the personality of Jehovah God
Consider two important ways in which Jesus revealed his Father.
- In his teaching, Jesus made known the truth about Jehovah—His name, his purpose, and his ways.—JOHN 3:16; 17:6, 26.
- By his actions, Jesus revealed many beautiful facets of Jehovah’s personality. Jesus reflected his Father’s personality so perfectly that he could, in effect, say: ‘If you want to know what my Father is like, just look at me.’—JOHN 5:19; 14:9.
