As a Christian believer, loyal to Jesus Christ, I have the good fortune of knowing God, and, of knowing him as an All-Good God.
Jesus never wavered, he never lost integrity, he did not complain, he IS kind, merciful, slow to anger, he is generous, giving, loving, and best of
all, he is whole and complete not divided. And yet, broken down as he was, to enjoy any part of him, is to enjoy the whole of him, body, mind and
soul, and that's really something very special, that in Christ, we have an all-good God, who transcends the duality of good and evil, allowing us the
opportunity to be made whole again, with integrity, in him and through him with him in us. In Christ, God is completely one, while at the same time,
entirely, entirely sympathetic to our plight. He understands. He knows our deepest fears and sorrows, our trials and tribulations, our weaknesses, our
strengths, our hopes and dreams. In him and through him, we too in our humanity AND our divinity (made in God's image) can evolve and grow, even
flourish, as a "work in progress" on the path of progress towards perfection and absolute wholeness, unto at-one-ment with him where he is, in joy,
happiness, and in life as life is meant to be lived and enjoyed.
However, we all lose integrity, we fall short of his glory, which is the glory of God made manifest in human form, and as a result sometimes we
victimize or are made victims of various abuses (however great or small) because of this loss of integrity, this breakdown in Civility, and yet, he
himself was broken down WITHOUT any loss of integrity whatsoever, and in my mind, that's also really something very special, because it accepts us as
we are, and meets us on the road precisely where we are at, inviting us, with love, to grow in the spirit and truth until we too get to enjoy all the
fruits of the good life, the happy life and life as it is meant to be lived, life to the full, even to overflowing!
Christ is not the King of a kingdom or a house divided against itself and there is no lying to be found in him. He is always trustworthy and true, as
a whole person of God (personal God) with integrity.
Where we all fall down and break down, which we all seem to inevitably do in one way or another, he picks us up and puts us back together again.
Of ourselves, we do not add up to what he adds up to, but in him, with him in us, we are rebuilt, rejoined, and reintegrated, and thus made into our
truest and our very best self as we authentically really are and were made by God to be and to become.
Jesus Christ therefore, is like an evolutionary principal of reintegration, making of an otherwise fractured and divided humanity at enmity against
itself in so many ways, into the family framework of the brotherhood/sisterhood of mankind, as the children of a loving God in one heavenly household,
that we were created to be and to become no matter how fallen the state of our present condition.
What more can I say?
In Jesus Christ and through him alone (no one can point at anyone and say "there he is" or at themselves and say "I am he", since he is everywhere,
being at one with God as the spirit, the truth, the life, and the reality) we are at long last reunited, made whole and complete, both individually
and collectively as one global family of God (regardless of what we may or may not "believe").
Therefore, through Jesus Christ, whether you presently believe and know him as I do, or not, there is hope, hope for a better world and a brighter
future, in the truth on the other side of the mask of "religion", which may very well operate as little more than a control valve for purposes of
domination and submission, as sad as that may be, since it's very point of leverage is in diametric opposition to the principal of individual liberty,
even love and mutuality, and family, which is the highest frame of reference both on earth and through the starry skies (if not in heaven above in the
outer sphere where the people of the light live, in perfect comfort I might add!).
The All-Inclusive Christ
As the "Son of Man" Jesus Christ, now ascended with the first father of all creation in the outer sphere above all, represents for us, the family
framework wherein the human being may come to realize his/her full potential from life to life in eternity. Being all-inclusive, his is not an
exclusive proposition. He excludes no one, he does not shut anyone out.
Thus, he represents one whole family with no-one excluded.
This then leads to the healing and the regeneration of the world in time and history, a world re-integrated, and reunited, made whole again (at long
last) as one global family/civilization, a world created for us for our enjoyment, and a world given to us to steward for all future generations (not
a throw away world).
We are one family under Christ Jesus our common Lord (does't matter if you believe this or not, it makes what I've said no less true!)
P.S. (this may not make sense to most, but it might to some, for those with the ears to hear, or for curious PTB, maybe even some of whom might have
an axe to grind).
There is only the need for ONE passover lamb as processed spiritual food for our enjoyment, and that person is Jesus Christ who was born, lived and
died as one of us, and yet who, for reasons we can hardly fathom, became entirely transparent to God, whereby the Atma and Brahma are one (son and
father of the all in all). It is therefore vital and of the utmost importance to recieve and include the lamb, keeping him with us in the house, which
in so doing, represents our reunification and our redemption for the past sins of the world, and after all, we each of us, to a one, myself and
everyone the whole world over, deserve to be included, and never excluded, so that all will be present in the house with Christ as God above all.
After all, a one armed man is a very lonely person.
Love to all, Merry Christmas, and may the New Year bring tidings of joy and new possibility for you and yours .
None of us need be persecuted any more, enough's enough.
P.S My avatar is a Peacock feather, which symbolizes resurrection. It is not a turkey feather just in case you might have been wondering, and "cold
turkey" has no meaning whatsoever as a metaphor, except maybe to quit smoking, which is my new years resolution, that and take better care of myself
and live a better and more fruitful life, while trying to be most helpful wherever possible, but in small ways.
I love you all, even though you don't neccessarily always keep all your promises.
