Some food for thought.
Mathew 3:2 - “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”
Why do all ‘Christian’ religions talk about the coming? That we must wait until death to find out how we did? Did you know that John the Baptist was an Essene as was Yeshua. They believed in the “NOW”. In working towards being a more perfect reflection of the Creator God.
Notice that this verse says that the “Kingdom is AT HAND”. Meaning that it is here NOW. There are tons of verses that similarly speak to the now. “Choose you THIS DAY, whom you will serve”. “Today is the appointed day”. “Now is the Hour”. “Renew your minds DAILY”. “Do not worry about tomorrow”. “THIS is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”
We concern ourselves with the yesterdays, that destroy our tomorrows, preventing us from living TODAY.
Why did Yeshua spend so much time in ‘prayer’ or Meditation? It is because the “Kingdom” is within, not outside but INSIDE. This world beguiles us with the ‘pleasures’ it presents, the distractions that come our way. We get involved in the chaos of this world to the point we become chaotic and lose sight of who we are. If we don’t “Dwell in the secrete place of the Lord” (within the Kingdom, which is within) we cannot align or re-align ourselves with the “I AM”. It is written in the Christian and Eastern tenets a similar thought: “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.“ We were once part of the ‘Word’ spoken by the Creator, that caused all of creation. We have been deceived and distracted from this fact that we are One with the Creator and therefore One with Each Other. We are also; purposefully exposed to so many chemicals that deaden and destroy our “Third Eye” the Pineal Gland. The Eye that must be clear to ‘find’ the Kingdom.
This belief that something is coming, or we are all doomed to this chaos is a LIE. Our thoughts bring our experiences and the reason so many are in distress is because we expect it. Think about the programming we have endured. You are ‘sinful’, evil, not worthy of Love. I will say that this world is of chaos, the Truth has been twisted to have some of the truth but not all of it. We are perfect creations of the Perfect Creator. There can be nothing that was created by It that is ‘bad’. The problem is we have been lied to about who we are and that our only purpose is to disrobe from this worlds chaos and re-align ourselves with the Source of all things. How can we be at peace when all we hear, think, listen to and accept as ‘truth’ is NOT of the original spoken WORD? Seems like the ‘gift’ of free will has allowed choices divergent from Source and have moved us further and further away from the Perfect Harmony we could experience. Our goal should to become the perfect Expression of the Perfect Creator and that frequency is Unconditional Love. Anything the says you are not worthy is NOT of the creator. We must spend time in the “Secrete Place of the Lord” to commune with It and shed the lies we have been told for eons. To have Peace, we must BE Peace.
