Many Mansions

1qogQh1438270823

What do you think when you think of what this passage could mean. Could it mean Jesus was telling man that God lived in a mansion? A large house in the sky? And in Gods mansion there were lots of rooms?  So, could that passage have a different meaning? Lets see.

 Here are some meanings for the word ‘mansion. A ‘residence’ and a residence is a place to ‘reside’ in. Now the meaning for ‘reside’ is interesting as it means,

existing  in something as a permanent and inseparable element ’

What exist in man, that is

‘permanent and  is an inseparable element?

His Consciousness, because mans Consciousness  is

‘permanent and inseparable’ from him.

Then does that mean that what is ‘existing’ in us that we call God, is really our Consciousness, and in this Consciousness there are many ‘rooms’?

Rooms like, love, hate, sin, sickness, joy, sadness and ‘room’ like wisdom, or understanding, to name a few of many ‘rooms’? Yes it could mean that, because ALL things do take place in some part, some ‘room’ in our Consciousness.

Man can know nothing without  his Consciousness.

Think, isn’t it Consciousness  that exist in us?

Is it also not true that there are ‘many mansions, many rooms, many areas within Consciousness?

And is it not true that without Consciousness we have no body, no reality at all,  because it is only Consciousness that tells you anything, so without your Consciousness telling you have a body, or a world,  you do not have anything.

Was that what these Bible passages are trying to tell us? That we are not in or of our body, but that we, in reality exist in and as Consciousness?

Is this Bible passage saying

Consciousness is God?

What else could it mean? Certainly not that there is some God sitting in some mansion, some big house waiting for man to come to him.

How could man come to God, if he is already IN God?

Can man get out of God? Out of Consciousness?

And it is true

w

Yes, we do ‘exist’ in and of Consciousness.

So, how do you understand what many ‘mansions’ means?

 The word ‘many’ tells you…there is more than just this earthy ‘room’ we are now in.

Is it possible that one of the ‘rooms’ is our earthly experience?

If it is, then we can WALK OUT of  that ‘room’ and enter another one.

I Am The Vine

Instead of just reading  Bible passages,  believing and accepting the handed down meanings for them, you can choose meanings that feel right for you at your present understanding.

Let it be YOUR understanding interpret the word meanings, and you will find that now, the passages do make sense.

So get a ‘dictionary, pen and paper’ and choose your own meanings for words.

So…this is my understanding of this passage.

Dictionary meaning for ‘vine’ the ‘stem.’

                     ‘the main body and what supports’

According to the dictionary a ‘spirit’ is a

INNER INTELLIGENT LIFE FORCE

Is the ‘spirit’ the ‘I’?

For me, YES.

Next

I Am the Vine. The’ Inner Life Force’ of its branches.

We are the ‘branches.’

According to dictionary

Branches are

‘developed from a principle source.’

What is the ‘principle source’ of  anything?

God, also known as Spirit.

The Spirit, which is the

Inner Intelligent Life Force

is the

Principle Source of its branches, US

 As ‘branches’  we are connected to  the

Inner Intelligent Life Force.

Also remember

‘conform,’ no ‘complaints,’ be in agreement with,’ to ‘wait patiently’

Wake Up

a924040bedb40e65327c490694572d4a - Copy

What does one do when they sleep? They dream.

Dream- ‘a series of images in the mind.’

Images-‘thoughts and ideas, and a physical likeness made visible.’

When you are living your life, isn’t it comprised of

‘thoughts, ideas and visible physical things?

So your ‘dreams’ and your ‘awake’ life are just alike.

Like the ‘sleeper’, the one ‘awake’  believes the ‘mental images’ are real and present. But are they?

Maybe not, for thousands of years ago a man named Paul wrote to the people saying.

N1yjqQ1434825780

  He told the people to wake from their sleep.

Did Paul know something different about  sleeping  than we do?

Looking at the word ‘sleep’ you find it means,

‘having mental pictures of something not real and present.’

Sleep means, ‘not aware.

So the question is, why did Paul tell us to ‘wake up?

If ‘wake’ means, ‘being aware’ what did Paul want us to be aware of?

Was it being ‘aware’ that our appearances of things in this world, were really nothing real and present, but were in fact, us only seeing our mental images, as we sleep?

29192

Could this be what Paul meant?

Maybe, because  if it is true that God is ALL

Then there is NOT God and Man.

Why?

Because in reality, we do not live out here in this world.

Acts_17-28

Our only ‘being’ is God

Because All Is God

That means there is not God and Man

Man ‘sleeps’ and believes he is ‘awake’. But in order to really be ‘awake’ man must first    ‘wake up from his long held beliefs of God and man that he has been taught from man.

If you want to ‘wake up’ and find a real you and a real God

WILL YOU WAKE UP

Getting

WITH

Are you using ‘all your getting’

For a job, or a better job?  A wife, a husband? A  car? home?  A vacation? Better health? Wealth?

Are you using ‘all your getting’  for your personal wants and desires?

Is it not true, you use do use ‘all your getting’ to make your life better.

Even though you are told

e03fa10d9eeb2b6c289e1d99767088f8

‘USE ALL YOUR GETTING….TO GET

UNDERSTANDING.

The word ‘understanding’ means, ‘ personal interpretation.’

That means you should get a dictionary and find out different meanings  for the words you are reading and chose meanings that make the passage make sense….to you.

That’s called

‘personal interpretation.’

So….why do you read that passages if you are not going to do as it says? And the only way you will know what they may be saying, is if you UNDERSTAND what the words could  mean…to you…to your ‘interpretations.’

Am I A Person

th - Copy (3)

Am I a real ‘person?

My ‘belief’ is…I am a ‘person.’ BUT… a ‘belief’ is only a ‘mental act?

Do I ‘understand’ what that means? Or will I just let it slide away as it seems silly.

Maybe that’s why I have been told

e03fa10d9eeb2b6c289e1d99767088f8

Will my ‘understanding’ show me that as a ‘person’ I am really a ‘mental act?

Do I ‘understand, ‘mental’ means ‘thinking’ and ‘act’ is also ‘thinking?

So am I only ‘thinking’… I’m a real ‘person?

Do I ‘understand’ a meaning for ‘person’ is a ‘guise?

AND…   a ‘guise’ is a  ‘false appearance.’

Does that mean I,  as a ‘person’ am a  ‘false appearance’ and am not real?

And is that why I have been told

26353

I ask again…is that what I am to  ‘understand?

And if  I am not to judge by my body, what am I to judge by?

Is it I’m NOT to  believe I am a ‘person…just because the ‘appearance’ says I am?

Maybe

29192 

Is that what I am to ‘understand?

That the ‘appearance’ of me as a ‘person’ is NOT me?

And that I should not be deceived, by my ‘appearance’ as a person?

But  wait, as a ‘person’ I do believe I am something real. BUT…if ‘believe’ is to ‘assume,’ then I am only ‘assuming’ I am real, based on my ‘beliefs,’ which are composed of my ‘mental acts.’ My ‘thinking.’

AM I REAL?

As a ‘person’ I have a physical body, which is made up of ‘matter, ‘ so yes, I must be a real ‘person.’

BUT

Do I ‘understand’ what physical matter is? Do I?

Physical matter is comprised of and is….

‘The actual substance of  THOUGHT.

Does that mean, that as a ‘physical person’…the real me is a THOUGHT?…

A ‘mental act’ taking place in my mind?

I’m really confused .

Am I ‘understanding’ what it is I am to  UNDERSTAND?

I really do want to ‘understand.’

 BUT HOW?

b91a1b5aece3acb209c8623c04dc38e5

Am I sleeping?  Am I  dead?

If I’m ‘sleeping’ then I’m not being ‘aware.’

  If ‘dead’ means, dull’ and if ‘dull is, ‘slow to understand,’ maybe I am ‘dead, ‘ and it is time to ‘wake up’ and ‘be aware.’

BUT….’aware of what?

How about ‘aware’ of what the Bible is really saying.

  How about  being ‘aware’ that its  time for ME…  to  UNDERSTAND.    

Again, what am I to ‘understand?

Do I need to UNDERSTAND  that as a ‘person’ I DO NOT EXIST.

And why don’t I as a ‘person’ exist?

Because my ‘appearance ‘ that I’m a ‘person’ is deceiving me.

Do I need to UNDERSTAND…the ‘person’ I think I am….is only a MENTAL ACT.  MY….THINKING

IS THAT WHAT I AM TO UNDERSTAND?

I AM A MENTAL ACT. I AM MY THINKING?

I’m still so confused. What shall I do now?

Quotation-Jesus-Christ-bible-truth-Meetville-Quotes-214796

Yes, I have read this…BUT… do I ‘understand’ it?

Do I UNDERSTAND

Free is ‘not subjected to the laws of physical necessity.’

Free is to ‘be enjoyed without limitations; unrestricted, not obstructed,

Free is ‘not united or combined with anything else;

Free is ‘separated and unattached;

Free is to ‘rid of that which confines, and limits.’

Am I to ‘understand’ that I can, by UNDERSTANDING,  be ‘free’ of the ‘person’ I think is me?

And then what happens to ‘me?

Will I FINALLY UNDERSTAND

9499106844_772146d1fd_z

AND

NOT IN MY BODY AS A PERSON

Is that why I am told

222

AND…once I get my UNDERSTANDING

I will have the WISDOM to UNDERSTAND

90634add54b4bfab5e1d329d5b8ed137

And not in my body as a ‘person’ but IN my Spirit.

Will my UNDERSTANDING prove

History of ‘cloning.

AND…Clones can reproduce…just like human clones.

Below are a few

Coned   Goats    Cloned Buffalos   Cloned Dogs

Eric Schon, a molecular biologist at New York’s Columbia University, believes the creation of cloned babies could be two to five years away. “If it can be done, it will be done,” he said. “The moment it could be done in sheep and mice and cows, it was only a matter of time for human cloning.”

Since monkeys are our closest relatives, their cloning can easily lead to human cloning.

AND

WE MAY  ALREADY  HAVE BEEN ‘CLONED.’

The ‘US’ the Creators used a part of man to make another one. Sounds  like ‘cloning’ to me.

Something to at least think about. Why?

Because God is suppose to be ‘ONE’

Not    ‘US’    and not   ‘OUR’

Is it possible…..Could it be….

the Stable

6398425535_7450f3fcea_z

       There is no room in the inn for Jesus to be born. Why?
Maybe because an ‘inn’ means a ‘public place‘. A place of the this world. An ‘inn’ is used to house the people of this world.

And even before he was born, Jesus knew he was ‘not of this world.’ The ‘inn’ was too full of handed down human beliefs for truth to be born there. So Jesus was born in a stable.

A stable is a, ’place for domestic animals.’ A meaning for ‘domestic,‘ is the ‘household.’ The family. The ‘stable’ represents the ‘household’ of God. Those who wanted to know God.

And a meaning for ‘animal is, ‘relating to the physical as distant from the spiritual.’

Jesus had to be born in a ‘stable’ because that is where the ‘domestic, the ‘house hold’ were, and since the ‘stable’ housed ‘animals, or the physical’ and since all human hood is ‘physical’ what a better place for Jesus to be born, since he came to show us, the ‘animal, the physical’ man the truth.

The ‘inn’ was full of the people who were to busy to realize that they were ‘animals.’ Thus preventing them from ever understanding God.

Yes, it’s weird, but so is all the Bible.

Suffer

 

Religions believe God is All Knowing.

There is nothing God did not, and does not know.

Religions believe God is ALL Good.

Not some good, but all Good.

If true, then why do most religions believe all ‘suffering’ is part of the curse that God pronounced upon mankind after Adam and Eve disobeyed.

Then think, if ‘godly’, means, ‘conforming to the laws and wishes of God,’ then if you do ‘conform’ you will suffer ‘persecution.’ Persecution means to, ‘ to cause suffering, torture and torment.’ Makes you want to be ‘conform’? Doesn’t it?

So what’s the point in ‘conforming  to Gods laws and God’s wishes’, if all you get back is ‘suffering, torture and torment’? What sense does that make?

 

If you knew in advance that something terrible would happen to one of your children, would you not prevent it? Would you ever allow your child to sufferer? For anyone? For anything? Would you? Even if you if you thought you could help the world through your own child’s ‘suffering, torture and torment’.

God, the all Knowing, would have to have known what would happen to Jesus. God would also know that the ‘suffering’ of Jesus would be in vain. And it was in vain. Why? Because over 2000 years later, the man of earth is no better than he was in Jesus’ time. Think about it. What has changed in 2000 years? What has changed. The world is no better off morality or spiritually than it was when Jesus was alive. Is it?

Maybe the God you worship is not the real God. Because the REAL God is of purer eyes than to behold evil.
