Jesus forgave His enemies because He realized that His enemies could not help what they were doing. “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” This means that His enemies were not “conscious” enough to realize that we all share a part of the Universal SouL or Universal Christ. God is Consciousness. The same Self in all of us is what we need to be aware of. We are just in different bodies. We have the consciousness of Jesus buried inside of us. We slowly recognize the consciousness of Jesus inside of us. We can also recognize the consciousness of Jesus inside of us in a flash.
I learned in speech class that “good rhetoric is heart felt and mind created.” Sometimes messages or posts are intended to act as a mirror for a person or persons as to what they are doing to their self on the spiritual plane. Strong rhetoric can be intended to take a person to the core of their being, that is, to their heart, and it is aimed at waking the person up to higher consciousness. Consciousness of deep-deep… overall reality is what Jesus was about. Consciousness is God as Love.
Part of awakening to higher consciousness is strengthening the Self through gaining the courage that comes with direct truthful communication. Yoga tells that the fifth chakra is the spiritual center for communication. The fifth chakra, or a person, becomes healthy when a person achieves the level of confidence that gives the person the courage to look others in the eye and communicate with truth directly. I am writing here about general communication that is communicated directly. Healthy communication achieves results. A person with a healthy fifth chakra does not play games with others. A person with a healthy fifth chakra is on their way to the state of enlightenment. A major block to enlightenment is that most people labor under the delusion that others cannot prove they are “lying”, purposely misinforming or manipulating some kind of an illusion. The healthy fifth chakra person has attained the growth that has emerged them from the shadows of passive-aggression and adult peekaboo communication. Interestingly, the reason why many marriages and relationships end at around the two year period of association is because the game of adult peekaboo has come to an end and people are seen for who they are. Jesus said, “the truth will set you free” and He was speaking about awakening to the true state of enlightenment, John 8:32.
Honoring your parents or guardians is honoring the Cosmos or the Universal or Cosmic Christ. Most parents are unconditional love or wish they were. Parents see a piece of the same soul (their souls/our souls) that we all share in their children and with more spiritual understanding ideally extend their unconditional love to other children and people in general. We share the Sacred Heart or Sacred Soul of Jesus and the more that we work at goodness to understand this fact the more do we see our shared soul in each other. We begin to see our Self in everyone. Orphans are here to teach us love.
For me it is normal to not eat land animals and water beings. I make the exception when I am being entertained by others as to not insult them. Jesus told the apostles to “eat what they give you” so as not to insult the host, Luke 10:8. This dietary advice from Jesus sounds like the advice coming from a vegan/vegetarian. I cannot imagine Jesus regularly desiring to eat other beings – can you? I do agree that we should put our faith in the teachings of Jesus who teaches us how to be masters of life. Jesus gave us the Message of Life with his teachings. The message is that life continues after death, that is, life and death are One. Be good Everything is a manifestation of Spirit.
Thoughts and feelings about condemnation, accusation and fear can come from the misinterpretations of the receivers of communication. The more elevated a person becomes the less will be their own thoughts of condemning others, accusing others and fearfulness. Fear is a normal response when a person is up against mass ignorance. Jesus experienced fear so bad when He was up against mass ignorance that He suffered from hematohidrosis, that is, the sweating of blood.
A person can manifest their own demonic situations and hallucinations, which come from the person’s own energy, not really a demon, because the person is in rapport with evil and has not conquered it enough in the self. For example, a panic attack, or high anxiety attack, manifests due to a person’s thoughts and feelings being out of balance. The person’s system is toxic and their diet is also off balance. I had two panic attacks when I was nineteen. I was struggling with the world as we all are. A panic, or high anxiety attack, is really kundalini rising in a toxic fashion. This is a big reason why most spiritual seekers need a guru or a knowledgeable spiritual director. It depends on how conscious you want to become. Jesus knew this when He cast out demons. A simple example of casting out a demon is helping an addict to quit.
A closed, or partially closed, soul can be opened. A reason why we are not supposed to judge is because the inner state of the sender of the communication may be higher than the inner state of the receiver of the communication who can project their lower state onto the sender and can go as far as murdering them. Misinterpretations of motives go on in everyday life. Jesus suffered from mass ignorance projected onto him. The average person cannot tell truth from falsehood and can be easily duped.
