And, if you feel hatred welling up in you because of anything I have said...
Maybe you will now understand what it was like to be a Pharisee at the time of Jesus.
So, you don't have an answer to my questions, then.
There are a number of things that you don't understand about consciousness.
When the consciousness of the 'thinker' concocts a question, what it is looking for is more pleasure. It is not asking about the Truth because it
does not care about Truth.
So, no, I don't have any answers to your questions because nothing I say will be pleasurable to you.
The only answer to you is an answer which is pleasurable.
In the face of common sense,
Merely another term for laziness or intellectual pleasure.
you rely on conspiracy, issue shifting and name calling. You expect that one should abandon solid beliefs
I don't expect this at all. In fact, I really don't care what you do.
Unlike the theologians, I am not asking you to pay my salary, or my pension, or for my health insurance.
of faith in favour of your claim of enlightenment,
I have never
claimed to be "enlightened".
When will you stop lying
about what I say?
when you fail to even address an obvious and easily understood contradiction, as I have asked you to.
Claiming that only an outsider can see things in another light makes some degree of sense, but you've presented zero evidence to show that you've
seen anything other than what you want to see.
I cannot give you either the Vision of the "Son of man" or the Revelation of the "resurrection".
These and the Knowledge they Reveal are the only "evidences" that I have.
That is within the purview of only the Creator.
And, while that is of supreme importance to you, and I think that's just grand, your elitist,
Don't blame me
that you have not received the Revelations I have received.
But, as Jesus says in his reply to the Sadducees: "...but those who are judged worthy
of a place in the other world" receive the Revelation
of the Memory of Creation and the revelation of the memories of previous lives.
So, maybe you should take this charge of "elitism" up with Jesus, huh?
confusing and contradictory system of beliefs
Don't have any "system of beliefs".
What I have is what has been Revealed to me.
is of no interest to me,
As I said, the consciousness of the 'thinker' cares only about intellectual pleasure (originating in the fear of death).
Since what I am talking about is Knowledge which has been Revealed, it is "of no interest to" you.
and not likely to be of interest to anyone else who has even a passing knowledge of the facts.
The Vision of the "Son of man" and the Revelation of the "resurrection" are facts with which you have no experience.
I am talking about a country that you have never visited. You have read books about it; you have seen pictures of it. But you have never visited it.
And you compare your ideas about this country with books of ideas which have been written by other people who also
have not visited the
country. And all of you agree with each other--all of you who have never visited the country. But, when you encounter someone who has visited the
country, what he or she says contradicts everyting that you have said as well as all of the books that have been written by those who have never
visited the country.
This is upsetting to you.
It hurts your feelings; it offends you; it makes you angry.
I couldn't care less.
