The Resurrection of the Dead

We are born understanding that we are physical beings in our physical environment. We identify best with the physical and with what we want. From the very first moment we open our eyes and let out that first cry, we state, “I want!” We start things off very selfishly — This world revolves around us and our needs.

But as we get older we start to question, “What does it all mean?” Or, at least I did. That was because I did not like life. I did not like how challenging it was. I did not like how we hated each other to get ahead. I did not like the things that we did and said to each other to get what we wanted.

I found life to be challenging. I did not know how to succeed. I did not know what the point was in being successful by worldly standards. If I had things then I was accepted and admired, but it didn’t seem to matter how I got those things.

I started to really hate this “me, me, me” mentality. Every organization, every situation, every person seemed to be worried about itself. And because it did, it didn’t care what it did wrong to have what it wanted.

See, that is the problem with humanity. It invests in itself foolishly. It thinks life is about itself, but in reality, things mean absolutely nothing unless it was obtained in love.

When we realize the physical means nothing and the things we have here mean nothing that is when we start living. My ego means nothing. I may feel good for the moment when my ego is stroked by being acceptable to you, but that means nothing in reality.

The physical is an illusion.

Selfish Ego Dies

The physical dies. We all know that eventually we will all be faced with our death at some point in life — That real part when our physical bodies becoming dirt again, but our spiritual bodies are alive, always. What we don’t seem to understand is that our physical bodies can die at any time. It is just a matter of when we decide to wake up to the reality of who we really are and what life is really about.

The Spirit of God

As we all know there are differences between us in our language and how we all see things. In reality, when we learn who we truly are we will see how we all are saying the same thing, but just in a different way.

What we are all trying to identify with is our spirit. This is the spirit that God blew into the mouth of Adam making him alive. This was passed on to Eve since out of Adam came Eve.

These two, in their immature love, made what they thought was love and bore a baby into the world called sin. This sin created enmity between the man and woman that would only be corrected by a new baby being born by God’s true, divine, love. This baby is Messiah.

This baby came and died. People did not understand him. In our ignorance, a lot of wrongs were created by us because of him. His physical body broke and freed the spiritual one that can be found when we all learn how to love one another.

Walls and Wars

The walls of Jericho fall down.

The Spirit of God is Messiah who is available for the taking to be understood in each one of us who learns this selfless love.

Our physical body is temporary. We can die to the bondage of the physical anytime we want. We just have to make a choice between wanting to live for the spiritual versus wanting to live for the physical. When we choose to understand ourselves as God designed us in His image; we will be born into a new spiritual reality. We will be renewed, resurrected, and truly alive, living as we learn to understand our true-selves through the Spirit of God that can be found in each one of us.

I am in love with God, with the Jew, with the man, with Adam.

I am her, Adam is her, we are her, we are one.
