vertical line Jesus is in your word choice, as a void between acceptance and perception.

The first step is dropping the name and search, for what is here now, today, this present moment.

vertical line Are you searching for a man who was around here ... oh, about two thousand years ago??
I think your search may be a little late.
Come again tomorrow and maybe we will have better luck.

vertical line As Jesus hung on a cross for all to see he united the horizontal with vertical so that each direction we look, and reach has a way in it. And the transfiguration brings the familiar into the unfamiliar. So, each of us contains the light of seeing into all darkness.

I like Jesus.  Hes my brother.

I very much admire and respect what he did, or at least tried to do, for mankind.

He wanted to save everyone, and if he hadnt all would be lost.  As it is, some will saved, so to speak, those who follow his teachings.  He came here to teach, not to be worshipped.

You dont have to worship Jesus, or believe him to be God, to follow (agree with) his teachings.  If you follow his teachings, likely you will not worship him or think him a God.  A lot of people who go to church every Sunday are not following his teachings.  Too bad.

I know Jesus as a being from another plane, who came here to teach people to live in peace and harmony, and was tortured and killed for his efforts.  I hear hes coming back to set things straight.  I hope so.  Thats something to look forward to.

vertical line Teach according to the ability of those to learn.

One learns according to ones ability ...
Whether inner circle or outsider, the word was passed on
Each got what they were searching for ...
For each person who sought something .. found something ...
didn't matter if it was real or imagined .. they found something

No.  Like everyone and everything else in Creation,

he is incidental to *Things as It is*, interesting in his own way,

but not necessary, or necessarily, to mine.
