What is the Truth?
I studied every sentence in the New Testament that Jesus supposedly spoke and asked myself: Will this statement set me free? I could not find one sentence, but three. If you put these three sentences together you will know who God is and you in relationship to God.
In John 4:24 Jesus said:" God is a spirit"
Can we agree that God is spirit? Can we agree that God is not physical? Can we agree that spirit cannot be seen (as the physical realm) but only experienced and felt?
And if we can agree with that, must not another question arise? If God is not the physical realm, what is the physical realm? Does the physical realm actually really exist or is the physical realm a manifestation of my beliefs?
In John 10:30 Jesus said: " I and my father are one"
What does that mean? I and my father are together? Or I and my father are the same?
In the Old Testament we read in Genesis 1:26-27 that we are made in Gods likeness and image. So, let me get this straight: If God is spirit and we are made in "his/she/it" likeness and image, then we are one and the same, so we too must be spirit and not as many believe the body or the mind.
We hear time and time again about miracles happening all around the world. People are healing without operation and medication. People are experiencing things that scientist & doctors cannot explain and so on. Do maybe miracles give us a clue to who we truly are?
In order to put all the pieces together we are still missing one vital piece of the puzzle: If God is spirit, is spirit good? The statement that God is spirit does not tell us if spirit is necessary good also.
In Math. 5:48 Jesus said: "Be ye perfect as your father in heaven is perfect."
Spirit is not good or bad, but perfect.
Be ye perfect, asks us to be, not to become. Since we are made in God's likeness and image, we too are perfect already. What is holding us back from experiencing ourselves as perfect is the belief that we are not and already. Instead we believe that we or someone else did something wrong, and/or we believe that we still have to do something in order to be. We believe: If I pray (ask) then I will know, If I meditate then I will hear, If I eat healthy then I will be healthy, If I give then I will receive, If I diet then I will loose weight and so on.
But all these things only demonstrate the belief that we are not already perfect. With other words if we still think we need to do something in order to be, we are not. Alone the thought that we are not makes our experience a less than perfect one. We are talking here about our experience only.
You are perfect already. You were perfect before you were born into this so called life and you will return again to perfection. But unless you are consciously aware that you are perfect it will not be your experience.
