For once, it would be nice to hear from people who are actually interested in
knowing him on the spiritual level.
What a wonderful idea for a thread!
The Holy Spirit...yes.
My Divine Father, yes.
Jesus personally, not yet!!!!

Light has no opposite other than itself, so the entire world around you is you.
Just as the verses state, it's you. It's me. It's all of us and everything.
ALL means ALL.

What is the ONLY direction to show you who you are?

INSIDE
... When you practice this inside (meditation in the sitting position), you shine the light back to your higher self,
thereby waking it up to the connection you have with it.

...but make sure to look inside.
I could listen to you all day!

I've never had a vision of Him but from time to time He's sent a small gesture. I am not holy enough to receive a full spectral visitation, no where near it, but some weird things have happened.

Several times with the radio or a license plate if a song comes on or something I see when I was thinking of Jesus. One time I felt like he had my back or was watching out for me when I thought of Him and a car drove past me in the next lane and the license plate on the person's car read- ARAMAIC. I am not kidding. I was like, ummmm I am pretty sure license plates don't have that many letters. And then a song played on the radio right after that by the band Jesus Jones

One time when in a cemetery during Easter a fat beetle, looked like a dung beetle flew into my chest. Just hit me right in the chest. God knows I am a sucker for Esoteric knowledge. From my knowledge the dung beetle is an Egyptian symbol of Rebirth and resurrection before Christianity existed.

It is believed that Jesus may have been tutored into mystery school knowledge by the John the Baptist before he started his own ministry.

Jesus was recapitulating on purpose, the ritual of the dying and rising god. As someone who was an immensely gifted prophet and clairvoyant and an outsider of his own Temple-Religion, Jesus was most likely exposed in the northern parts of Israel to astrology, reincarnation, shamanism, etc. It's no coincidence that he is the only healer-exorcist in the Bible. He was raised among a different class of people. Jesus would know that he was born at the time the Piscean energy was beginning since most of Judaism at that time was being influenced by Greek Hellenism.

Jesus believed and knew that he himself was the bearer of the Christ Consciousness, similar to the water bearer of Aquarius, but in this incarnation he was the "son of man", a human like everyone else but with two sides- divine and human. (Pisces- one fish goes up, the other goes down- As above, so below). In in this first coming as the Christ, he would need to align the ego with the soul and overcome death. So with his second coming he returns as a perfected angelic being who can usher in an Age of Peace, simultaneously we will be entering our "son of man" stage when he comes back solely as the "Son of God".

Anyway. That was my encounter. A lot of people think Jesus is some guy far away and difficult to experience like he's more distant than God. But Jesus was a spirit like all of us. He was a person who lived on Earth and died like one of us. If anything he can come to us easily or we can connect with him easily by identifying with his suffering, and he can identify with ours. Especially when we are in a dark place, Jesus can come in and expel it with the Light. Unlike other Spiritual Masters who reside on higher planes with God, Jesus specializes in bringing Light to humankind, casting out Satan and the demonic realm, and establishing God's Will on Earth. With Jesus, it's very much like having an eternal Luke Skywalker in heaven who is always at our side, a big Brother who chose to become Human by the consecration of the Father to fulfill a divine mission which changed all of human history.

See it that way and your mind might open up more to him

I had have many prayers answered, at times it might take a while. but when it happens, i know it was from God. but I don't pray to Jesus, because he didn't tell us to. He told his followers to pray in this manner ,(Matt. 6:9 Pray, then, in this way: “Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name”). Our prayers has to go to his Father, but can ONLY get to him, through Jesus ,(John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me). This why we usually End our prayers...”in Jesus name”. Some pray to Jesus and say...”in your name”. But how could that be right when Jesus is the mediator between imperfect men and his perfect Father? ,(1Tim. 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus).

Jesus taught us who to pray to, and he even set an example. because he ALSO prayer to the same one he directed to ,(John 17:1 Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You). He wasn't praying to himself. Because he TOLD us that he has a “GOD” and a “FATHER” ,(John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God). Jesus said that every word he spoke, was NOT his words, but his Father's ,(John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak). Jesus said that he even gave the men who already worship the God of Israel... (Jehovah Exo. 6:3) his father's name. Obviously they didn't know God had a name ,(John 17:6 I revealed your name to the people whom you have given me out of the world. They were yours, and you have given them to me. They have kept your word).

Lastly Jesus said that we should get to KNOW... the “ONLY TRUE GOD”.and he wasn't referring to himself, because he INCLUDED himself as one we should ALSO get to know. If we want to gain life ,(John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent). So this is why I don't “pray” to Jesus. People have to be careful of what they think they believe, satan plays on it. Some have said, that MANY people of the bible actually spoke to God, true! But these people worshiped the true God. Jesus is NOT “God in the flesh”, but the SON of GOD who was sent to teach and save us ,(John 3:16,17). if twenty faithful men of old say the have seen God and actually did, they would all describe him exactly the same. Yet MANY today claim to sees him differently.

Some may chose to say... God might want people to see him differently. But what sense would that make considering he's a God of “Order” ,(1Cor. 14:33). satan on the other had would bring up confusion. Jesus nor Jehovah God is about confusions! Jesus told us if we want the truth, we would find it. If we truly knew Jesus, we would know that he didn't come to seek his own Glory, but that of his Father. Jesus taught us ALL we need to know, and what we need to do, in order to gain “eternal life”. We are to be NO part of this world, just as he said he and his wasn't! ,(John 17:16). because the world is in the power of the wicked one...satan! we are to follow Jesus perfect example ,(1Pet.2:21).

But unlike satan who leads many people who isn't close to Jehovah God and Jesus, by mean of trickery ,(Ephe. 6:11,12). Jesus NOR his Father will result to such trickery. but If we refuse to obey we will meet the same faith those did in Noah's day ,(Matt. 24:37-39 “As the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ship. and they didn’t know until the flood came, and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man). peace

While I believe its good to question things, I still think it can go overboard. Some things we are never going to know, and we are missing the point. For once, it would be nice to hear from people who are actually interested in knowing him on the spiritual level.

Note: I am only interested in hearing from people who actually believe in getting to know Jesus and who have had positive experiences. No negative junk here please. Thank you.


Do you know Jesus?

1}Matt 6:33-- Therefore, keep on seeking- FIRST- the kingdom and his( YHVH(Jehovah) righteousness
2)Matt 5:5-- Happy are the meek for they will inherit the EARTH.
3)Lords prayer-- Hallowed be thy( Father) name( YHVH(Jehovah)--the Fathers kingdom, the Fathers will.
4)Jesus teaches--he has a God, his Father--John 20:17, Rev 3:12)--So do his real teachers-Paul, Peter and John--2Cor 1:3, 1Cor 8:6, 1Cor 15:24-28)-- 1Peter 1:3-- Rev 1:6-- all in agreement, Jesus has a God-his Father.
5)Jesus teaches at John 17:1-6,26-- a prayer to the Father-- verse 3--this means eternal life, their knowing( taking in knowledge) you( Father) THE ONLY TRUE GOD and know Jesus--verse 6 = YHVH(Jehovah) 26= YHVH(Jehovah)
6) Bottom line reality of a true followers day--John 4:22-24
It just takes believing Jesus.

In other words, you as a perfect copy. You are his body returned from the grave in baptism, or born again into life. YOU. Praying to him is communing with his Spirit, which is your own. We are all doing this one way communication. The Sanskrit word for man is MANU, or the meaning: To Think. Listening is light, or enlightenment. Light cannot be seen with the eyes, but only the ears. Look between you and the nearest objects around you. Do you see the light, or what it hits? When it hits you inisde, this is hearing and seeing the Spirit. That light is you, or you would not recognize it. You see and hear it each day, receiving a residual image of it internally each moment. You just don't recognize what you are receiving.

Light has no opposite other than itself, so the entire world around you is you. Just as the verses state, it's you. It's me. It's all of us and everything. ALL means ALL.

Learning about you is the relative state of existence to see the whole from the parts. You are all of this, as well as all your ancestors. All. Enlightenment is not from prayer alone, which is you speaking, but also from meditation, which is you thinking and listening. Do not expect words and letters to speak.

There are 10 directions. You know 9, but miss the one you might fail to see. North, South, East, West, Past, Present, Future, Above and Below. What is the ONLY direction to show you who you are?

INSIDE. Meditation, in the traditional sense, is called practice. Life is that practice and you are MANU, the one thinking. When you practice this inside (meditation in the sitting position), you shine the light back to your higher self, thereby waking it up to the connection you have with it. BUDH in Sanskirt means waking up, or awakened. Enlightenment is shining the light at the light, causing faith (the flame) to ignite. Who do you meet? Who do you pray to? Who is on the other end of the phone?

Yahweh said he was one. What does this mean in relation to the verses above? What does this mean to you below? Seek all directions, but make sure to look inside. It's the only place you will find you.
Before I get started I found this very interesting and what I'm about to say isn't going against you but is only expanding on something that is very precious to me and my culture. It's somewhat to do with the 9 directions you pointed out. We(Maori) have what I can only describe as a poem although its been used for speeches, songs etc. it's about a guy watching the many birds dancing and singing to their respective selves, btw Manu in my language is bird. As much as I dislike translating my language into English it seems necessary at this time. Part of his ancient poem goes like this.
Ka tangi te Titi, ka tangi Te Kaka(pronounced Kaakaa)
Basically it would mean 'The cry of the Titi, The cry of the Kaakaa'. Whether this has anything to do with the biblical verse or not is up to the receiver. "do you not hear the one crying in the wilderness?" The two birds mentioned above are two distinct persons/people. Their voice although speaking from the same source they have a message to fulfil. I don't know how many birds have been seen crying but in a more figurative speech many cultures relate themselves to animals which you can also find in the many bibles.
The poem goes onto say "bind ye up bind ye up, bind from above, bind from below, bind from without and bind from within".
I use this philosophy quite a lot and here's just one of the ways I do it. Imagine using that philosophical standpoint in a circle of life where a certain people of life just needed that little seasoning to enable their eyes to see. Now imagine using the same tools in the circle of death to help people that are not suppose to be there to escort them out. Now imagine yourself with the same philosophy in the circle of life and death, this is where you'd separate one from another. Like music it's a progression. The one that can walk into all three circles is what I call the messenger and might line up well with the word Bodhi, sorry I am not familiar with the word but it came to mind. Lets just say this person was a Bodhi and what he/she is doing is to help wake up the Heir(son and daughter) enough to enlighten all people.
If you google the sound of these two birds it might show you the contrast of the same calling. I suppose a complimenting contrast is a funny idea even vice-versa.

I thought I would add my two sense. Unsure how you see this Jesus character but I see him as a Torah observant Hebrew and so I don't pray to him as for communicating to him I'd say he wasn't the only one I meditate on.
Now I don't know if you would consider this spiritual or not but after reading your comment especially the last part where it says "No negative junk here please" I get many different angles on how to approach this. 1 question would be, does that mean only positive junk is allowed? On the other extreme I could say as long as my negative is not junk is that allowed? Lol. I'm of the understanding that a negative can bring a negative to becoming a positive in certain places. Ofc once they become positive there will be no need for me in that state to be in their presence. That's only if its the correct positivity. With that I do believe I know what you meant and at this time I had nothing better to do.

Hello all,

I dont believe I have fully gotten to know Jesus in the entirely but I feel that my two teachers are Yogananda and Jesus Christ.

I did have a experience with Jesus Christ that was pretty special to me. I was going through some issues in my life and I would call out to him alot. There were times I imagined him holding my hand when I was trying to sleep.

The major experience I had was walking one day at my work from building to building and I truely felt he was next to me walking with me. Like he had his arm around my shoulder telling me it was going to be okay. I remember feeling chills go over my body when this happened and I couldn't explain it.

I am starting to learn that all these things that happened to me are all for a reason. All my life I had a belief in god or I would tell people that. But now I feel I truly do, and my love for Jesus is real.
