Jesus, What Is My Relationship to You?

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29)

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48)

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7)
You might remember back from the Bible where Jesus said, "Why do you call me good?" This is Jesus Christ speaking, "Why do you call me good? God is good." He always was going back to the author, he was always pointing to the author, he was never going back to a personal sense of self, he was always pointing back at the Creator and that is humble, that is appropriate. Jesus even says, "Awe is not an appropriate emotion with me, awe should be reserved only for God."

Jesus is with us, he is like us in every way except for one and that is time. He has transcended time, but he is equal with us in every way. And when we transcend time we say, "Ahh, you are me! I have been the Christ all along, but I was simply sleeping and I forgot who I was and who authored me."

"You can think of Jesus as someone who has transcended the ego and literally is the Voice for God that is speaking through him."

The belief that you can separate from God comes down to a question of authorship. The question is this, am I the author of myself or was I authored by God? If God is the author, I am Spirit because God is Spirit and God authors in Spirit. If I am the author of myself, it is like saying to God, hold on there, I want to make myself up any way I want to be. I want to try out being male/female, masculine/feminine, I want to try out being this culture, that culture; it is called reincarnation. What is reincarnation but the belief that I can be the author of myself. I keep remaking myself and reinventing myself, over and over again in form. You see, that is the core issue, who is my author?

As a human being, it seems like we have physical parents, but we have a divine parent who authors us in spirit. We cannot be both. We cannot be both physical and spiritual; one is temporary and one is eternal. You see, that is the core issue in the mind, who is my author, who is my creator, who is my source?

When it gets confused on the horizontal level, like with mom and dad, there is going to be guilt. Who among us have not had grievances with our parents? We think of teenagers sometime saying to their parents, "Why was I born, why did you even have me and bring me into such a crazy world?" The guilt gets projected in terms of the flesh, but the solution goes much deeper, way down into the mind. The core issue is really an identity issue. Every time you have an upset of any kind it really is still, am I the author of myself or was I authored by God?
