  1. John 19:10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee? John 19:11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin. — This is such a powerful line. No need to explain this one...
  2. John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. Love this verse, to me, it tells us that the Truth continues to unfold, to greater and higher potentials than previously known. And that we are all capable of experiencing such things.
  3. Nice. It’s easier said than done! Lol. But starting to notice what we (subconsciously) run from is important, and sometimes when we “face our fears”, we see that it’s more the fear itself that does the damage. Sometimes I notice, during the day, I’m moving more quickly, thoughtlessly, almost on autopilot. I will slow down and tune into what’s making me “run”. Could be some anxiety about work, or a conversation I had earlier in the day. Could be some anger directed at me the day before. Once I slow down and feel it, process it, I no longer am on autopilot, I’m no longer unconsciously running. I don’t need to deconstruct the other persons actions, or dissect it in any way. Simply noticing my own reaction is enough. Noticing how I’m trying to escape it, and choosing to let it “catch up with me”. Sitting with it. Seeing it’s not as bad as I think it is.
  4. I would say try the opposite of shielding - sit with what you want to escape from, let it pass through you. Most likely their anger is hitting stuff inside of you, which causes the overwhelming and uncomfortable feelings. Just my experience at least. It can be a blessing in disguise, because it shows us things in ourselves that we have to deal with.
  5. Yes, I have found it again. But it still comes and goes That’s the nature of things I guess, the tide, ebb and flow, expanding and contracting, coming and going.
  6. Sounds like you have some great practices going. They say bliss comes from grace, not by anything we do. Accepting the mundane can be difficult. I had an opening a few years back which left me seeking for that feeling again, for quite some time. The seeking can be beneficial - it draws us to explore ourselves deeper.
  7. John 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. John 9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? John 9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth. ——— This is very interesting verse here. Just by the Pharisees asking if they are blind, they don’t have faith enough to discern whether they are. There is still doubt, confusion and separation within them. Unlike the blind man whom he healed, John 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. His soul was ready to receive the blessings.
  8. Good stuff, all very interesting. The scandal line is quite peculiar, but tends to happen with modern day groups too, no? I do agree that direct transmission is the key. The way I was taught was an energetic representation of blood and body. By “sharing the presence”, we come into the Light. John 6:563: “He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.” There is no boundaries between... People who come into the Light and get this transmission can also “baptize” others, or pass the transmission along, such as the Apostles baptizing and healing people.
  9. John 11:1-10 1. Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2. (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3. So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.” 4. When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” 5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6. So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days, 7. and then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.” 8. “But Rabbi,” they said, “a short while ago the Jews there tried to stone you, and yet you are going back?” 9. Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light. 10. It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.” I do like this one. If a man is guided by the light, he will be safe.
  10. Very cool views, thank you for sharing. So you think the apostles ate the actual flesh and drank the actual blood of Jesus? Or did I misunderstand. Some sort of magic to carry on the communication after death? I have never heard that one, interesting theory. Where did you hear it, if you recall?
  11. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.” 21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” 25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” 26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.” John 4:20 The first part of these verses is about gnosis - in verse 22 "We worship what we do know." Experiencing the kingdom and knowing the Father, so there is no more belief, there's a knowing. The Pharisees worshiped blind, with belief - a God that was separate from them. Jesus, throughout his time talked a lot about being one with the Father. A special location or statue is not needed, it's experienced in every moment. The second part of the verses is a good one for discussion. It's important to remember that every time Jesus speaks "I, me" -- he is speaking from the light presence inside of him, and flows through us all. He's not referring to the man from Galilee - it's not like Jesus is an ego-maniac trying to win over converts and believers! There has to be a deeper meaning to it. Therefor, in my view, the Messiah is that Light that has come to "save us" (the eternal life, the water that quenches the thirst that he speaks of earlier in this chapter, and which Jesus speaks of so often.) The "second coming" is the moment the Light awakens in us, saving us from sin and death. For if we are speaking of things that have past- and things to come in the future- it is a dead faith; a belief, and holds no power to transform the practitioner. My view is the "light" was not accessible until Jesus came and brought it to us. He was the bridge - a Master so accomplished that he changed the rules of the game (a new Covenant between God and Man, through Christ.)
  12. sure, I’d be happy to write a bit more on the quotes. I’m outside of Boston, US.
  13. Energetically speaking, Jesus has a very strong male/yang energy, I’ve found that it can cause some waves and discomfort. Could also be a lineage thing. But speaking from my own experience, I had trouble with Jesus due to growing up in Catholicism and seeing how some people acted and used him. Which has been happening for a long time, as you know.
  14. Thank you very much for sharing your story. I think it’s great that you feel connected with Mary Magdalene - she is a bright light, and I feel a part of my path also. That’s cool about your awareness of resistance to Jesus- and also understandable.
  15. I would consider myself a Christian yes. I was raised Catholic, but I would consider myself a Christian mystic now. The bulk of my practice is reading the Bible, reading gnostic scriptures and various meditation techniques. I’ve been lucky enough to meet a few mystical Christians who have guided me on my path. How about you my friend? I’d love to hear your practices and how you came to know Jesus.
  16. John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
  17. John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
  18. The Holy Spirit is a fun topic. John mentions it a few times: John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. There’s some others, but the term “Comforter” is a great description for me.
  19. 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ 31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.” 32 Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. 33 And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.” These verses to me show that Jesus brought something totally new to the world... Access to the Holy Spirit...
  20. I agree. With that being said, I wonder why Jesus asked John to baptize him? I think John had a more important role than the books give him credit for. Perhaps being Jesus' teacher, but more so energetically opening the way... Below are the next verses. I have a feeling he is speaking about more than just a guy yelling in the woods 19 Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders[c] in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. 20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.” 21 They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No.” 22 Finally they said, “Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?” 23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.’”
