I see it in terms of the overall performance of the spirit of wisdom, by nothing more than openmindedness, willingness, and honesty, and a certain
lovability factor, a childlike innocence, a "cuteness" if you will, then the "mass superman" is born, as the spirit moves the world and human history,
in favour of something infinitely more Godly and therefore infinitely more worthy of the human being in general, individually, in family, through
community, and the larger world of which we are all a part, because, in the words of JFK "we all breathe the same air".
Not some individual "messiah", not a giant flying Godman in the sky with flaming eyes and a terrible sword, not a fleet of flying saucers (either
with out without Jesus at the helm), not the creative genious of the "ruling elite" class (now THAT's funny!), but an emergent, evolutionary
phenomenon, which comes from nowhere in particular and everywhere all at once!
We won I guess is what I'm saying, the little man who Jesus himself once addressed in person (while breathing the same air) is just going to go ahead
and INHERIT the Kingdom of God, as it was his very birthright since BEFORE the very foundations of the Earth (always in God's mind, for purposes of
love and sharing, and wisdom as conscious awareness and mutual understanding, in mutual love and harmony).
The spiritual logos having returned to the Earth, not in one man alone, but through everyone to everyone else, and from me and you, having willingly
recieved what God has had in store for the faithful, for those with the courage of faith and imagination in a supreme being or a power greater than
It's not in a windowless temple of the freemasons, not residing behind the stained glass windows of the Church, but the spirit of the living God
moving where it (He) pleased freely, as free energy also right from the Zero Point Field already fully informed, and always fresh, and new, and
therefore creative, and fun! (like new wine into new wineskins you might say)
So while I'm in this "modality" let me just add something to what my old friend and elder brother, husband, savior, and God, once said (in open air).
The kingdom of heaven, is like a man, who, in self examining himself (after all, an unexamined life isn't worth living as Plato said, or was it
Socrates) cannot help but to laugh, uproariously, at the sheer magnitude of the utter absurdity of what he'd previously taken himself to be within the
context of his own personality, and in laughing at himself, to no end, he becomes lost and found again by God in eternity. (smiles all around).
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like laughing so hard you start to cry, and by the time the tears dry, you are left with nothing but peace.
You are "it" dear reader, or I should say "thou art that", since we're not an "it" at all, but a process, just as the spirit of God that informs and
is informed by all creation IS a process, and we are that same process in God-consciousness realized in time and history and in eternity now.
There is no distinction, no exclusivity, no small force of super-Godmen, no Messiah, no invading fleet of ufo's (although some day contact is
inevitable I think once we ALL work together and bring home the catch of the ages, which is the KOH having enveloped the Earth once and for all), and
no giant angry flying Jesus, no it is the spirit itself which is already moving through the "clouds of the heavens", and throughout all the spheres
and eternity, recreating creation, while recogizing God again and again in conscious awareness as our no-self self or our TRUE SELF in God and with
God in us.
It's not so hard to "grok", except for a certain preconceived religious bias against indoctrination - but let us not be ridiculous and allow THAT to
stand in our way either, that's not reasonable or logical, not imho that's for sure.
There are those among us however who just cannot help but to take themselves by far too seriously, who are in jeopardy however, as this process
continues to move, and to enliven and regenerate the world and the human being, so there's still a sense of urgency to it, and the imperative not to
get left behind, not as a warning, but simply based on the value of what someone might miss out on, which is the childlike wonderment and awe most of
us already know at some level, deep down in our innermost heart of hearts since we were all children at one time, or have children in our family or
know them and their unique way of being, their pure authenticity.
"We" then are the Messiah.
Unless you, dear reader are too chicken or fearful for no reason, or "not worthy", but that you see, is the lie, and this truth, the love that wipes
away those tears of yours.
"Blessed are those who mourn tbey SHALL be comforted."
Oh but to lack the capacity to mourn or to repent, to cry, to have shame, remorse, regret, what a terror that would be, to be empty inside and then
empty again and never filled - I would never wish that on anyone, being forever inauthentically inauthentic or unreal, already dead.
They do exist among us, people M. Scott Peck author of The Road Less Travelled called in another title "the people of the lie". Fortunately, they are
exceedingly rare but sadly for the rest of us, are more often than not found in positions of power and as the so-called "pillars" of our soceity, but
as Jesus once said of the Pharisees of old they are all clean on the outside, like whitewashed sepulchres, but filled with dead mens bones and all
corruption on the inside - there were some even Jesus did not approve of in other words, let us not be found in their camp or "sphere of influence".
Oh you might make a lot of dough for the beancounters to count for you, but you could find yourself in your high esteem completely impoverished of the
soul, and the reality, and the truth of life and love. And if you know that darkness, or have seen it, get out of it now, while there may be still
That said it's much better to focus on the positive than the negative, but there is something to be avoided at any and all cost, since what would it
profit a man to gain the whole world, but lose his own soul..?
