Jesus was more than wise. He received direct knowledge from God, his source of secret wisdom. To this day, most Christians consider this connection unique. Only God’s son could have been gifted with revelation in every word he spoke. Yet across many cultures, direct knowledge is a mark of higher consciousness.
All thinking happens in the mind, yet the closer you get to the mind’s source, the more your thoughts are like revelations. They no longer seem like “my” thoughts, the kind associated with everyday events and personal memories. Instead, you seem to tap into reality itself.
Jesus spoke of divine reality, the revealed wisdom of the soul. The same experience is possible for anyone in higher consciousness. This is an aspect of intuition, and what is being revealed is the nature of the soul, or higher self.
Revelation was Jesus’ primary means of communication. The disciples ask a question, and Jesus answers as God would. In the simplest terms, Jesus’ mind was God’s mind. Jesus didn’t have to interpret anything; he was guided by pure truth. Needless to say, he provides a daunting model. Can we really expect our own thoughts to come directly from God?
Why not? Achieving insight and intuition is a reasonable expectation on the path, and Jesus intended to serve not as a supernatural phenomenon, but as an example of someone who has reached the goal.
