In John twelve, verses 25 and 26, Jesus tells us, “Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity. Anyone who wants to serve me must follow me, because my servants must be where I am. And the Father will honor anyone that serves me.”
There is a lot to be considered here in these few short verses. In his letters in the New Testament, Paul tells us that his interest in the world has died, and that as followers of Jesus we need to conduct ourselves as citizens of heaven. This has been a gradual process of letting go for me, and it continues to be.
When I first interacted with Christ and God while using a legal substance over a few years, I came back to Christianity and I thought that this meant wearing a cross around my neck, reading the Bible and going to church. It became clear to me, though, that many things in my life would have to change. Indeed, most of my thought processes would have to change, and much of the way I spent free time I would have to change as well.
God and Christ are merciful though, and when we repent of our transgressions against self and others, and ask Jesus for his forgiveness, he and God begin to direct our lives in a way that is a process of letting go of worldly pursuits that endanger the health of our souls. They don’t expect us to change everything overnight, and they give us mercy when we backslide, as long as we return to them and ask forgiveness and guidance to follow their path more closely.
I interacted with Christ as the consciousness of the Sun, and to be in his radiant presence of unconditional love trumps any worldly pursuit or passion that I have ever experienced. The intensity of the bliss that he surrounded me in is something that I have never experienced on any substance, or in any love relationship. He simply is an awesome and powerful sacred being of love, that cares for us with an intensity we can’t really comprehend.
In fact, this love that Jesus has for us is why he incarnated here to bring to us the message of repentance and forgiveness of sin, and why he and God both took on this tremendous amount of personal pain and suffering, because they wanted us to know explicitly how to have our souls purified by Christ so that we can ascend to the heavenly realms upon death. They agreed that Jesus would come here to give us the keys to the God’s Kingdom, and all we have to do is unlock the door to Christ so that he can come in and direct us along the path that he and God wish us to follow. I hope everyone will take this crucial step in accepting Christ as spiritual Savior, so that we can all ascend to heaven like God and Christ have promised us.
