...please understand that Jesus was and is the most glorious display of God's spiritual hierarchy on Earth. Angels, Archangels, Ascended Masters, Elohim and many more all salute and pay tribute to their Brother and His Majestic Presence that shines forth God's Eternal Light, Love and Power. Furthermore, remember that "religion is not a matter of ceremony alone. IT IS A MATTER OF DAILY, HOURLY LIVING. It is a matter of plain, ordinary common sense. It is a matter of discipline, self-control, contemplation. It is too, of course, the development of love and gratitude for life itself and for the God who has given that life and sustained your presence in the universe... hoping to fulfill through you a destiny WHICH CANNOT BE FULFILLED THROUGH ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL."
We are each a God particle (seed). And a seed must sprout before a bloom may come forth. You can never become anything other than yourself, and unless you become yourself you cannot be fully happy. Let no man or man's religious dictates come between you and your God-self. For we truly are created in God's image / just not the standardized portrait that religions issue.
