I Am The Vine

1

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’

Who or what is the ‘I’ that is the ‘vine and main body who supports the branches?

How about the ‘spirit,’ because

spitit

According to the dictionary a ‘spirit’ is a

INNER INTELLIGENT LIFE FORCE

Is the ‘spirit’ the ‘I’?

aeyaHT1436374897

For me, YES.

Next

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

7

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

To ‘abide’ means

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

And

To ‘comply’ with all Gods ways.

Do you ‘abide’ with God?

Because

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

Wisdom

htY9PE1434571234

‘Wisdom is the principal thing’

Principal means, ‘most important.’

Why is ‘wisdom’ the most important thing for me to get?

Lets find out.

Wisdom is, ‘knowledge,’ and ‘knowledge’ is  ‘good judgment.

If wisdom is ‘good judgment,’ that  would mean if I am ‘judging’ anyone or anything other than good… I am not using my ‘wisdom,’ my ‘knowledge’ or my ‘good judgment.’

Wisdom being ‘knowledge, and ‘knowledge’  is, ‘interruption,’ which means to,‘clarify the meaning’.

That means whenever I am judging anyone or anything as not good…
I should use my ‘wisdom’ my ‘knowledge,’ which means I have to ‘re-interrupt’ what I’m judging as not good.

How, by ‘clarifying the meaning,’ of what I’m judging.
Clarify means, ‘free of impurities.’

Since ‘impure’ means, ‘mixing,’ that tells me, I have to use my ‘wisdom’ my ‘knowledge’ and my ‘good judgment’ and take time to rid my mind of mixing good and bad thoughts.

And I can because ‘wisdom’ also means the
‘ability to apply, to use what you have acquired mentally.’

And since ‘wisdom’ is a ‘ mental grasp,’ which means the
‘ability to think and act utilizing knowledge, and understanding ‘
I then can ‘interrupt’ my mental grasp’ and judge with my ‘wisdom’ that it is true, that

68zmpv1434561536

So…
I will not ‘judge’ the appearances of good and bad. Instead, I will use my ‘wisdom and knowledge of God, and I will

So, what does it mean to YOU

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

Time To

2ad1bd6283b8bc757ffa547243da15ab

What is this really saying…to me?

dedective28 I better find out.

What are ‘fields’

an area of human activity.’

My mind?

 2ad1bd6283b8bc757ffa547243da15ab

White is, ‘pure and perfect.’

Harvest is to ‘gather.’

Now I know that when I read

2ad1bd6283b8bc757ffa547243da15ab

I take it to mean,

If I close my eyes to ‘this world’ I always end up in my Consciousness and once I am there I understand that I am being told that my ‘field,’ my mind is the ‘area of my human activity,’ and not the outer realm.

In my ‘area of my human activity,’ my Consciousness, everything is, ‘white,’ is ‘pure,’ due to the fact that there are no forms in my ‘field.’ My mental realm.

Knowing this I can ‘gather ‘ those ‘pure’ thoughts that are

ALREADY

Waiting to be gathered.

For me that makes a lot more sense than to think the saying is telling me it’s time to actually go into a field and harvest food or anything else.

Enlightenment

SpiritualEnlightenment-1400x1400-200x200

Enlightenment is to have ‘knowledge.’

Having ‘knowledge’ means to ‘know.’   Know is to ‘accept beyond all doubt.’  Do you know what you are to ‘accept beyond all doubt… or have you been told what to ‘accept?

To have ‘knowledge’ means  ‘understanding through  your own experience.’

Your OWN,  not from the ‘knowledge’ or the ‘experiences’ of a priest, a pastor, a guru. No, NOT from anyone else’s ‘knowledge’ or their ‘experiences.

‘Knowledge’ can only come from your OWN inner ’experience.’

An ’experience’ is something ’fully secured in your mind.’ YOUR mind, again, not in any other mind, but

‘fully secured in your mind.’

Do you have the ‘knowledge’ of God ‘fully secured in your mind…from your OWN inner experience of
The-touch-of-God-e1354038265423

No one can have the touch, the ‘knowledge or experience’ of God for you.

When you have a ‘experience,’ which means to ‘recognize,’ and for you to ‘recognize’ which is to ‘know ’

You have to know that you and the whole universe are one with God.

Every single second.

3950739615_8526152bb1_z

You have ‘enlightenment‘ when you are ‘fully participating’ with God. That means not half ‘participating’ with  God  and half of what your conceited little self wants.

You only can have ‘enlightenment’ when you

FULLY PARTICIPATE with God.

That means you would have to put God first in everything in your life. It means you must be ‘totally being ‘aware’ that all things are God being. Can you do that? You must if you sincerely want ‘enlightenment’.

Enlightenment means   ‘tested.’ Not ‘tested’ as you know the word, but ‘tested’ which also means ‘to examine.

To ‘examine’ means getting

‘facts,’  and ‘examine means  to ‘discover the real character.’  

You can only go to God for who and what God really is and not be satisfied to accept the ‘facts’ found by others, especially the so called religious leaders and the reason is, they found their ‘facts’…

But they can not find yours.

What if you investigated  and found different ‘facts’ of God? What if your found ‘facts’ and they were different from what you have been told all your life?

Well unless you alone search for the ‘facts and and then ‘examine the facts’ you found  you will never have the ‘experience’ of God and never be fully ‘enlightened’.

You can only find and know God by your own ‘experiences’ never by someone eles’s.

Jesus Said

8W66Sp1446311668

What did  Jesus mean?

Did Jesus  NOT want us  to look to him for God?

Maybe because  why else would he have said that?

And why  did Jesus say

If I Do Not Go Away?

Maybe he had to go away because the people were believing he was God. Maybe he had to go away because the people were believing he was doing the miracles. Maybe he simply had to go away because the people were not ‘understanding’ what he was telling them.

Most likely,  because we were told that.

And they understood none of these things:  neither knew they the things which were spoken.’

And maybe Jesus had to go away because the people were asking him things instead of asking God.

          1

It  clearly states

‘ASK ME’

 About things that concern you. God did not say ask Jesus.

Why…..BECAUSE

bible-god-quotes-427

And Jesus WAS in this world.

Maybe not of it…but he was IN it.

AND

What is in us, that’s GREATER than anyone in this world?

         0c359f1211f7777bc9beb0592e4b9494

And that HE is your inner Spirit.

That’s exactly what is in your Bible.

Where To Look

Religious leaders call for the peace in the middle east
Why does everyone look to man, man who wrote the Bible? Man, who organized a thing called religion to suit his needs and  to teach  us ‘their’ understanding, which in most cases really doesn’t do much good when you really need help.
And why would anyone want to trust anything man tells us about God, when it has been clearly stated

d5726b5097a64fb81d4a496bb32324d8

If we are not to ‘trust’ or ‘ask’ man things of God, who are we to ask, in order to understand God?
How about your own Spirit

0c359f1211f7777bc9beb0592e4b9494

Is your Spirit  the one you go to for your understanding?
If not, WHY?
 WHY…when you have been clearly told if you want to know anything about God, all you have to do is to go
‘Within’
And ask your ‘Spirit’

But wait….you first have to know  what your SPIRIT is?

Spirit

A Dream

0052And What Does Man Do When He Sleeps

He

5492971031_5655380b8c_zLast night I had a dream. While in my dream, I never even thought that it was not something real… for to me, I was really experiencing it as part of my life. Part of my reality. No one could tell me I was only dreaming.

Then when I woke this morning, I was now NOT dreaming.

But I must be,

Because NO WHERE does the Bible say God woke Adam. And if we are all a part of Adam (which I don’t believe) we are a part of Adams dreams. Dreams we call, ‘dreams’ and ‘dreams’ we call life.

And maybe that is why we are told to

th

Isn’t that saying that YES man is asleep? It must or why would be told to wake up?

Are we being told to ‘be aware’ that the sleeping man of dust is not the real us? And that as man sleeps,  man ‘dreams’ he has a life in a body of dust.

And if he  ‘awakens’ which means to ‘be aware.’

Then the ‘light’ which is ‘understanding’

Man would then fully ‘understand’

qq

Not in a sleeping mans dreams.

If my so called dream world, that seems so real, and is not…who’s to say, this RIGHT NOW that I’m experiencing, is not just a dream world also?
