Love is the only standard.  Forgiveness is the only process.

A church is a mind attuned to the Divine.

"If  you would but believe that my Father loves you with an infinite love,  then you are in the kingdom of God." ~ Yeshua ben Joseph

Kahlil Gibran, Your Thought and Mine

Your  thought advocates Judaism, Brahmanism, Buddhism, Christianity, and  Islam. In my thought there is only one universal religion, whose varied  paths are but the fingers of the loving hand of the Supreme Being.
 

Acts 17:24-28 (KJV)

24 God  that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of  heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is  worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he  giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 26 And hath made of one  blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and  hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their  habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel  after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us; 28'  For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of  your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
 

Edgar Cayce Reading 5125-1

.  . the church is within yourself and not in any pope nor preacher, nor  in any building but in self! For thy body is indeed the temple of the  living God, and the Christ becomes a personal companion in mind and in  body; dependent upon the personality and individuality of the entity as  it makes practical application of the tenets and truths that are  expressed.
 

Jesus of Nazareth (Eye of the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran Page 115)

He [Jesus] came to make the heart of man into a temple, his soul into an altar, and his spirit into a priest.

1 Corinthians 3:16 (KJV)

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
 

*Jesus did not intend to found an organized church or religion, but  rather to demonstrate for us all a personal practice and path empowering  everyone through personal knowledge and experience of a direct  relationship with the One Source, our Creator.  In other words, he  wanted everyone to reach the same unity with God that he had reached.

*If you are constantly busy or always occupy your mind/consciousness  with work, television, music, noise and conversation or mindless  chatter, how can you hear and discern the voice of God?  Only in  practicing silence can you hope to ever hear and feel, "the still small  voice".  Mankind was created to be led by the Holy Spirit for a "beside  still waters", peaceful existence.
 

*Enlightenment is not liberation from the world.  Enlightenment is a  transcendent state of being which is primarily experienced as profound  freedom from narcissistic self-concern.  This state of being then  creates a much deeper engagement with all of life, the great invisible  reality that underlies all that is.  From there begins the personal  relationship with our God--the inner process of alignment, connection  with, and direction from the Creator.  In this state of being, you know  and live the truth of what Yeshua said, "I and the Father are One." 

*It is impossible to live and die without God, and it is possible not to  know this.  No matter where you are, what you do, or how you live or  die, God is with you.  Actually, God is all there is!  As Carl Jung once  said, "Bidden or not bidden, God is present."

*Prayer is willful, conscious intent...and so is the desire to please God.  So, be ever mindful of your intent.
 

*If your conduct in the world is totally unaffected by your inner  alignment with God (your worship in the holy place, your heart), then  worship is only an empty form with no substance and you cannot hope to  experience heaven on earth, nor God's hand in your life.
 

*The "fall" of Adam and Eve occurred when once perfect, clear  reflections, sons of the Father/Mother/Creator, became sons of man by  identification with the separateness of ourselves from Creator and  identification of ourselves with our physical body.  People began to  live in the forgetfulness of our connection and origin in Spirit with  our Heavenly Creator.  The eating of the fruit of the "Tree of Knowledge  of Good and Evil" was the beginning of Adam and Eve's (our collective  consciousness):
 

  • Believing that we could be separate from God and 
  • Believing in duality which reinforces a sense of separateness thus two opposing principles.

*Heaven is an inner state of being, a condition, not a place.  Know  that you are God's love within your life and act from that state of  being.

*"I, the Lord, am your God.  You shall not have other gods besides me."
This means ANYTHING other than Love (such as fear, anger, lust, hate,  etc.) is a false "god"; therefore anything other than Love is replacing  God--that includes uncontrolled negative feelings, emotions and  thoughts. 

*We are ever only in one of two states of mind (consciousness)--that of  Love or that of fear.  Which one are you consistently choosing?  Are you  truly conscious of your choices every moment of every day?  That choice  is also your willful, conscious intent and is therefore a "prayer" to  God. 

*The Christ of scripture is a pattern of salvation and not a man separate from yourself.

*We are here on Earth learning how to live divinely in a human world and transform this world into our Heaven.
