1:25 a.m. Saying 22 a and b.
22a Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples: Those infants taking milk are like those who enter the Kingdom.
22b His disciples asked him: If we are infants will we enter the Kingdom. Jesus responded: When you make the two into one, and when you make the inside like the outside, and the outside like the inside, and the upper like the lower, and the lower like the upper, and thus make the male and the female the same, so that the male isn’t male, and the female isn’t female. When you can make an eye to replace an eye, and a hand to replace a hand, and a foot to replace a foot, and an image to replace an image, then you will enter the Kingdom.
So, guys, an interpretation? It seems obvious. Is there more than meets the eye?
That depends upon what meets your eye, of course.
Well, I’d say 22a refers to a state of direct feed – nice pun, come to think of it. People who take direct nourishment in trust and acceptance, living in and from the non-3D connection.
And 22b means when you are all one thing, rather than divided between categories, and you have transcended duality and in a way replaced your old senses with new ones, then you may enter into the kingdom.
Good. But each of the images can be meditated upon, and will yield further insights. Still, you do have the basic idea of the saying. So, 23.
Galloping, these days, aren’t we?
23 Jesus said: I will choose one of you out of a thousand and two of you out of ten thousand. They will stand up and they will be alone.
This one, not so clear, perhaps.
Jesus says, “I will choose,” not “you will self-select.” What do you suppose that is all about? And “they will stand up and they will be alone.”
In context of Jesus teaching of our place in 3D and non-3D, I don’t know. It seems to mean more than merely, “I will notice this or that one.”
Yes. It is not merely a test of Jesus discerning certain individuals who are ready or who have potential. His will enters into it. How? And, why?
I suppose this could refer to a long argument that ensued about salivation through faith as opposed to through works. Christians divided on the question of whether anyone could by righteous living assure salvation, with the consensus being that it would require a combination of the grace of God and a righteous life.
Bear in mind, one and all, that we are not discussing “salvation” here, nor was Jesus, though his words came to be interpreted that way. We – and he – refer to the process of awakening to what you (we) really are; how things really are. “Salvation” put into “3D time-passing” terms what was 3D/non-3D present-time reality terms. [Or, perhaps more easily understood: “Salvation” put what was 3D/non-3D present-time reality into “3D time-passing” terms.]
It makes a difference.
In proper terms, this saying refers to the non-3D’s determining role in a 3D individual’s potential. You have to have potential for it to be realized. No potential, no way for it to be realized, obviously. [That is, if there is no potential, there is nothing there to be realized.] You can’t awaken to the true reality of things unless you have the potential to do so, and you can’t get that potential by merely willing to have it. So in that sense, Jesus will select one-tenth of one percent, as, in fact, they saw him doing. Most people could not understand him, but the few he picked had the potential to learn to do so. For the others, he could only lay down parables and teach modes of behavior (love one another) that would aid their development. But you can’t make bricks without straw, so to speak. And then, “they will stand up and they will be alone”?
Separated from the rest of humanity, I suppose.
Yes, true enough. Any more?
Separate in their self-identification, I suppose, as well as in external manifestation.
Externals here actually have nothing to do with it. It is how they will experience themselves that is the point.
But two sayings is enough to at one time, lest your insight become shallow. So even though this is only half an hour, it is enough.
Okay, thanks as always.
