Jesus of Nazareth has inspired millions of us through his teachings and guidelines for living. His message was very simple, and it gave ultimate power to the masses. Though sadly it has been taken out of context, and used for religious purposes to take back the power.
It is surprising that the teachings of Jesus have carried so much fear and unworthiness with them. Many people do not believe that they can reach the elevated heights of consciousness that he did, and do not aspire to be like him. However, Jesus was always telling everyone that they can do as he does, if not more. All you need to do is believe.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Jesus believed that when we go to the Father (God) and ask believing in Him, we are all capable of anything. The bible said of Jesus’ teachings that God is everything that exists, therefore God is also us. This teaching was also distorted by the church and instead it was used to keep people in their place. It got turned around, and since people did not believe it possible for them to attain the standard of Jesus, they became afraid of and in awe of an all-powerful force.
This made the people fearful of God, and Jesus' message, hence his demise. However, when you look at the essence of his teachings they are about love, oneness and power to everyone who believes in God as the only power there is.
Jesus on the other hand was so sure of his beliefs and his faith was unshakable. He demonstrated his teachings to everyone that would listen to show them that if he could do it so could anyone. Even although many of his disciples managed to attain varying degrees of miracles and heightened consciousness through him, the masses were still not convinced. His teachings then became unattainable, and led the majority to feelings of unworthiness and guilt because they could not live up to his example.
Jesus taught his version of the law of attraction, as ye sow so shall ye reap. He knew the consequences of our actions, and that judgement of another was just judgement of our self. He also knew of our oneness and unity. He taught what has become known as ‘The Golden Rule’ Matthew 7:12 ‘So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you’
Jesus’ teachings became twisted to take the power back from the people, and give it to those in authority. Sadly this is still happening. The people with our best interests at heart, who know how we work and the ultimate power each one of us yields, are demonized and made an example of.
Perhaps if we all knew, and acted from our true nature as Jesus described, the world would be a different place; the power would be shifted back to our favor and no-one would be afraid.
