Jesus: Humanity's Pattern For Salvation
Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
Some quotes by Roger Castillo:
"The cause of all suffering is our false belief in 'personal doership': the belief that we and other people are in control of how life unfolds."
"We are forced to feel shame and blame because of the deeply ingrained belief of personal doership".
"If the belief in personal doership starts to dissolve a great relaxation comes in."
"So how does that belief in personal doership get dissolved? It gets dissolved; and the terminology that we're using is that the belief in personal doership and attachment to outcome is contained in the thinking mind -- so that's just a conceptual name for a part of the mind -- let's say that has these beliefs as its base and that gets uprooted that belief system gets uprooted as the working mind -- which is another part of the mind that's saying gets given information -- and as that information is investigated and seemed to be accurate and there's a realization: Wow I never noticed this before and now I'm noticing it it's accurate and so now by default I have to start seeing life more and more like that."
Scripture cannot be broken
Let this mind be in you which was/is also in Christ Jesus
For me Philippians 2:5 is a key scripture with deep implications.
Not to play Jesus outwardly in your ego, but to broaden your mind in regard to your own reality and relationship with Life.
We can have only one mind, we can serve only one master! Through Phil 2:5 we create a gap between our Self and our mind; Jesus becomes more real and important than our own person, if we choose to, after careful contemplation.
All the statements Jesus makes become your own statements that you can explore, feel and make your own; but be careful what you ask for:
"Who do you say I am? Flesh or Spirit?"
Ask this yourself: Who or what am I?
Am I a time-bound body or faceless, formless Awareness?
"I am the light of the world."
I am = the first born, individualized Consciousness, Awareness, me free of false identity and suffering.
LORD = absence of the person, the separate-self.
light = light of Awareness, illumining all objects arising and subsiding in and as Awareness itself.
'this world' = man's interpretation, filtered through the conditioned mind; seeing multiplicity and diversity.
Earth = God's perfect creation.
"I am the truth."
truth = that which never changes in YOU = Awareness
“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him..."
Nothing can come to you that is not known, or predestined according to God's will.
Father = Father state of Consciousness; 'the cause of the phenomena of life'; benevolent, fulfilling, no-thing.
