No worries, I thought there had to be somekind of misunderstanding going on, wasn't sure what was misunderstood though. I thought you were saying I
was being hypocritical because I told him to "be gone", which I couldn't really deny.
I know the rest of what you say is true, I've been "to the bottom of the rabbit hole" and back, and the understanding I have comes from the father.
It was the father that taught me not to look at labels and such, but to instead look at the understanding behind it, as that was the purpose of
those things to begin with. IE: Do not focus on Jesus, but instead the understanding he teaches. When I read someone like Jesus, I see the
father in him.
I can hardly talk about Jesus without being equated being and meaning the same thing Christians do. Or without someone thinking I'm one of
"them", so that is where the bit of "Be gone" towards him comes from.
But how do I get someone who is focused on the external to look within to see the truth? This has somewhat become my #1 goal in life. Not to
promote a religion or anything, but to show people how to understand and so forth. And I'm surely not convinced such is possible, I had to have
the desire myself to find what I found, nobody put it in me.
I am certainly of no authority and would reject any such positions, the only real truth is found within, and while I may be able to express it, I am
unable to ultimately give the understanding directly to someone.
But it is hell for me to watch people walk in darkness. Especially when I see suffering as a result.
