The Lost Years of Jesus by Richard Bock

“The name Jesus Christ connotes two different ideas, Jesus the human being with his given name and Christ the anointed the God that is in all men. When one studies the Hindu scriptures and Buddhist teachings and sees that these sublime truths are in harmony with the teachings of Jesus it is not hard to believe that Jesus did go to India and other lands of the East in preparation for His mission which ended physically on Calvary but spiritually will never end until the entire human race shall know the universality of the truths He died for.” Richard Bock

Attachments obscure messages coming from your true nature.

If you are attached to having to appear a certain way because of your job then your job is your first priority. If this is the case with you then you would be considered worldly in pure spiritual circles. You would not be considered a “free spirit.” We ask ourselves: What are all of my attachments and how do they disrupt my natural thoughts, feelings, and actions? There are positioned people who have the kinds of work or play/work where how they appear to others does not matter – free spirits. Being in the world and not of the world is by no means not at all as easy as it sounds. This is the reason worldly people who are spiritually inclined choose to be free spirits in retirement and experiment with themselves in ways that they always thought they should.

It’s not about your gig. It’s about our gig.

Change your focus. Change your attitude. Catch your thoughts when you are thinking about yourself before the whole and change your attitude to love for the whole. Notice how you worry about how you will look – that’s your ego. Notice how you desire to compete and prove yourself. The desire to compete and prove yourself stems from ego and low self-esteem. It is not about “you” or “I.” It is about WE. “Are you with me?” – Dr. Jupian Leung.

Until thought leaders truly transform this basic (101) aspect of ego into a tough and fierce foundational attitude that is about truly orientating for the love of everyone, we will come to a halt in our spiritual development. The Everyone Attitude is not an attitude that is intellectualized or faked. The Everyone Attitude is radiated and transmitted by developed characters who have greatly downsized their egos or have “been through the mill” so to speak. Everyone Attitude people are not “stuck in the mill.” Everyone Attitude people have a twinkle in their eyes and overall body language that vibrates: I love you!

The Everyone Attitude leader has with the swords of extant knowable truth and Self-honesty removed enough of the major personal obstructions of their particular ego that have kept them from getting closer to seeing and knowing (grasping) the unobstructed Universal Consciousness or Universal Mind that we all share. Seeing and knowing “our” or the Universal Mind is, and always has been, the goal of all peoples. The unobstructed formless Universal Mind is the closest we come to the mind of God or to understanding God right now. It’s not about your gig. It’s about our gig. “Do you follow?” – Dr. Joe Mazza.

We become Enlightened when our individual souls unite with the Supreme Soul.

The Soul of our souls is the Supreme Soul. I have described the ultimate realization called Self-Realization as seeing and knowing the same Self in our different bodies. This could then be said: The Self of our selves is the Supreme Self. The Supreme Soul or Supreme Self is our Universal Mind or Universal Consciousness. Another way of putting this is that when your personality or ego unites with the Supreme Soul you become Enlightened. The light becomes turned on in the inner room of your mind and you see and know Universal Consciousness in yourself and everyone else. You become much more peaceful with a feeling of relief that you finally understand our interpersonal reality and the overall knowledge that the cosmos is permeated with the Great Spirit or is the Great Spirit. This state is referred to as Divine Union in Mystical Theology which is a branch of Theology.

The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, 395-396, Ramakrishna – Vivekananda Center 1969


Self-Realization is about the clarity of the SELF in Us. SELF-REALIZATION knows the Universalness of the Self in Us. Self-Realization is with Universal Consciousness. The Universal Mind is Universal Consciousness. You are of the Universal Mind. Self-Realization recognizes the Self in Us. The Self in Us is “realized” at the moment of Self-Realization. We are the same inside. We are One in Spirit.

Pure intellect is constrained by the limits of language. Remember this work is influenced by the koan WORDS ARE TRAPS. Intuition “realizes” beyond the limits of language and appearances.


As you progress along the Universal path on your way to Self-Realization project yourself into other people. Pretend you are them. You are their mind inside their body. The Universal Mind is just that it is Universal. As you clear the psychological and emotional blocks (conditioning) that prevent you from realizing the shared Universal Self you will be going through necessary humilities and/or facing Universal truisms.


If Jesus would have had more time Jesus would have explained the teachings in multiple depths. This is why we find the teachings hard to realize. We must realize that Jesus possessed the Enlightenment of an avatar. The teachings come from someone who is leading us on the way to what yoga calls Self-Realization or God-Realization. Jesus was vibrating to us the Universal Consciousness that we all share. The teachings are intended to aid us in removing the psychological and emotional blocks that keep us from realizing our Universal Consciousness. The spark of Divinity in us is what the teachings posture us to realize. The spark of Divinity in us is Universally shared. We all have it but the majority of us do not realize it. It is the Goodness inside us that needs to ignite and take over or AWAKEN and keep expanding. Christianity calls this spark of divinity the Image and Likeness of God. Hinduism calls it Atman which is the Universal Self. When Goodness ignites great things happen. When we realize the Universal spark in us we have the capacity to merge with everyone else and realize it in everyone else. You see it and know it. You see how it is blocked in others. It is the Supreme Self, that is, our foundation that needs to be located. Jesus was teaching from the clarity of Universal Consciousness which is Love Consciousness and it is known through Intuition or the higher mind. We realize that everybody is going through what we are inside. We are just in different bodies. It is like you are in everybody else. You as part of the Supreme Self are in everybody else. We are just confused about our Universal Consciousness reality. Self-Realization sees and knows the same Self in all. We are in the dark so to speak. Self-Realization turns on the light. The natural state of high empathy and compassion arises in us after this same Self in all of us is realized. This is why Jesus said while on the cross “forgive them for they know not what they do.” Jesus knew that His killers were conditioned by their culture. When we see into and through our psychological conditioning we are set free. We need to see into and through our conditioning in order to advance on the spiritual path. WORDS ARE TRAPS and your conditioning was largely imprinted into you through language. We make mistakes with language. We are corrupt when we try to trick people with false rhetoric and other illusions. Intuition or the higher mind sees into and through the word traps and other illusions. This is why we go off alone to think and meditate. This is what the spiritual life is all about. Jesus knew that they did not know about the same spark of Divinity in them that is in us all. They did not know what they were doing. They were murdering the body of Jesus that is considered the temple of our Supreme Self. Moreover, the same Supreme Self or Universal Consciousness was also in them and is our shared spiritual essence. This is why it is said that our bodies are temples. We share the Supreme Essence. We are ONE. The murderers of Jesus did not realize this Universal fact of reality. Language (WORDS), approximate reality. This is what is happening here as you read. Truth comes out in the long run. Jesus realized that humanity would go through the sorrow of future correction and expansion as we realized more about ourselves. This is our example to do the same. We forgive each other while cutting each other slack because we realize about each other.

Keeping the aforementioned in mind we are able to realize the teachings. We realize that this same Self that is in us is struggling and suffering in greater and lesser degrees in everyone else depending on how much the Supreme Self of Goodness is realized and has expanded. This fact makes us feel for each other. We all have different gifts.

Now we can feel for the suffering of each other that is preached about in Luke 6:27-38. It is about absorbing the suffering of each other because we realize about each other. We love our humanity. Parents, teachers, and caregivers absorb suffering from the intention of growth and healing on a daily basis. Jesus absorbed the suffering of the culturally conditioned murderers and this is our example…love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. To the person who strikes you on one cheek, offer the other one as well, and for the person who takes your cloak, do not withhold even your tunic. Give to everyone who asks of you, and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you…Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give, and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.

See and feel into the teachings. Scripture is aimed at the higher mind or intuition. Intuition grasps the vibrational level of language. If language makes you feel ill at ease your heart/intuition may be telling you something. We may be misunderstood. Pray that we understand each other. We are like each other. We can not help the wrongs we do to each other because “we know not what we do.” Self-Realization washes us clean and we become cleaner and cleaner through expansion as time goes on. Self-Realization is about you realizing you and that you are us. Scripture is there as an aid for you to realize your Self and your Self or our Self is Universal. Just think how the world would be if Jesus would not have died when He did!
