What is an Axiom?

A self-evident and necessary truth, or a proposition whose truth is so evident at first sight that no reasoning or demonstration can make it plainer.

PREAMBLE:
 The Son of Man needs to return to retrieve fools from their folly:
                                                                                                                                                            THE SEEKER:
When I was younger I traveled the world looking for the truth, and proof of existence of god. I spoke to priests, rabbis, ministers, pastors, holy men and scholars of many places. I have read the scrolls and scriptures and read their translations. What I discovered would not make most religious people happy: in that the Muslim, Christian and Judeaist religions all have a common ancestor; it was Abraham. These three religions are all stems of Abraham’s sons. And the followers of the stems are killing each other. I decided that if this is how people honour their God then I wanted no part of it. I have carried this with me all my life. It has made me resentful and untrusting, an atheist of the Supernatural God and a skeptic of the clergy.

THE GREAT DIVIDE:
Not being part of this divided world I nevertheless hurt as Everyman must, as the Son of Man, as a Global Citizen. I despise divisions of man as falsehoods that further the fury from fragmented humanity: Nationalism, Group Fanaticism, Religion, Supernaturalism, even the Global Ocean is divided according to bits and pieces of territorial turf to be defended, fought over, expropriated, annexed, by the strong arms of military might. This warring nature in the Ego of man nullifies forgiveness, denies compassion, scoffs kindness, resents charity, jeers benevolence, scorns love BUT the spirit love, The Immanence, will not be mocked

THE STAKE:
Love is not a feeling but the feeling that comes with love is the tickling of the spirit of life. It knows no boundaries, transcends all nations, speaks in every tongue; it’s the dream of every man, woman and child. The love within suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in truth, bears all things, endures all things. The fruit of the spirit of good is love, joy, peace, longsuffering(patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. Against such there is no law but the nature of the dividing man without reverence interferes with and supplants the virtues and happiness of life.

WHO WE REALLY ARE:
I was born, as all mankind, with a beautiful spirit but experience with people who have no idea or no care for the consequences of their actions, have insulated and calloused it. I am humanity’s sorrow.

I AM EVERYMAN, a microcosm of the whole human race.

THE INVITATION:
In your own way, in your own mind and spirit, you are invited to consider how your understanding may contribute to humanity’s restoration, If only “being” thoughtful about the Order of Worldwide Reverence (OWR) to help realize the dream of every man, woman and child: “The Dream is the Sanctity of Life and the Preservation thereof in OWR time; in OWR time! And we can all say, in our own way, speaking to the higher powers laired within all human beings, The Immanence.
May the force of “GEM”: Gravity, Electricity, Magnetism, be with you.
THE STRUGGLE FOR HISTORICAL UNDERSTANDING:
They vow celibacy and would force the world to practice their suffering with them. A gaggle of prudes trying to control everything; they dictate from the pulpit, operating in the recesses of darkness without the light of understanding.
The Corporate RELIGIOUS Collective serves only ITSELF & has no real life of ITS OWN. ITS minions, proxies and proselytes, are like robots of Protocol without discretionary insight or common sense. “IT” has no innate capacity for moral or ethical action of independent volition & has no capacity to respond truthfully to the moral & ethical concerns of real human beings. To the CORPORATE RELIGIOUS COLLECTIVE, the people are viewed as inventory to be managed and cattle to be prodded.
I, you and s/he are one with JeSuis! (“Je Suis” the french translation of the english  “I Am”; write Je Suis without a space, and Jesuis looks a whole lot like the given name “Jesus” doesn’t it. Jesuis Christ for example.

TRAVEL WITH HIM:
He left for the desert after meeting with his cousin, John The Baptist, for a public baptism that would mark the beginning of his ministry to the world.
I was with him when he went into the desert to ponder his mission, what course of action he should follow with his passion for truth, his common sense for understanding the reality of nature and what was this thing called supernaturalism? He thought about how the Clergy deceive the masses with magic and trickery to gain their wealth; Christians call this the temptation but it was not temptation; it was merely meditating and recognizing the way of the religious world as the clergy operated.
I was with him when he contemplated the clergy, how they deceived the masses at every turn, at every opportunity they deceived for material gain regardless of the poor they hurt, despite the downtrodden when none of them mattered to the religious except for tithing; when the fitting and usual practice of the day clergy used sleight of hand, trickery and magic to deceive and confuse and deny the truth to everyone, preventing them from knowing the truth about the Kingdom, understanding the Kingdom, where it was, going to the Kingdom and refusing to go themselves for deceit cannot enter the Kingdom of Good; ( FRAUDS: “I’ve had it with you! You’re hopeless, you religious scholars, Pharisees! Frauds! Your lives are roadblocks to God’s kingdom. You refuse to enter, and won’t let anyone else in either.” Matt 23:13, rendered slightly different in the KJV: “woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.” Tricking the masses to rely on supernatural quackery instead of the Kingdom of Love within them.
I was with Jesus when he thought “how easy it is, to use the ploys of deceit to devour the property of widows and for a pretense make a long and lengthy show of prayer words and excuses to rationalize greed’s insatiable appetite; to encourage the poor to give all they could afford and patiently wait for a supernatural miracle from on high to reward them for giving their all to the clergy; but no, he could never use his talents to do as the clergy did”.

These were just some of the thoughts of Jesus that are called the “Temptations”. However the Spirit lead Jesus into the wilderness, to be tested by his innermost common sense thoughts and the best way to begin his campaign to change the way people viewed the Kingdom and open the minds of people to the reality of humanity must play to live fruitfully and meaningfully in compassion, forgiveness and integrity with core love.

“Sure you can take these stones and with a little magic and sleight of hand you too can cunningly devise a way to switch the stones to loaves of bread and feed the hungry and sure everyone would grovel at your feet and they would all give you their wealth for a touch of your garment for a piece of the supernatural power you have surely been given that might rub off on them by the great supernatural god of religious men.”

Yes, the ego was high when the realization came that one so powerfully motivated and the brightest candle in the room compared to the average villager; in fact, as smart as the wealthy members of the Jewish Council but for all their deceit you could see right through their guise and yes they would welcome your  you and your intelligence onto the fold. OMG you could apparently throw yourself down the cliff and survive with your physical prowess and strength…… but no! He could not nor would not have any of their common deception.

Jesus was a man of common sense and he would work on behalf of and for, the common man, the poor man, the downtrodden, he would not be part of the deceptive clergy taking people for a ride all their lives under falsehoods and lies about the rewards and treasures in the supernatural heaven they preached, in the afterlife they promoted, which Jesus knew no such supernatural afterlife existed.

BUT he did know and accept that the Kingdom of God, the real god he called Father did exist but existed,  not externally in the supernatural of the there and then but indeed existed internally; internally, within you, in the here and now, in a place where all men could enter into spiritually but flesh and blood cannot enter and neither partake of, without the conduit spirit; if only, if only, the masses knew. Then would they see that heaven is not a place you go to but a place that you bring here to earth from within and so he coined the famous Lord’s Prayer, with that in mind when he stated Father who art in heaven, (within), hallowed and holy and revered is your name for you are the true God that exists; your Kingdom come, and we ask that thy will be done, on earth as it is in the Kingdom heaven within you.

And with these enduring thoughts in mind Jesus accepted the directive from the indwelling spirit of the highest powers, the Immanence within, knowing full well that the religious establishment would hate him for trying to change what they knew to be true but which they refused to teach nor practice themselves . And which Jesus lamented in John 7:1, “After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him”; AND, 7:7 “The (religious) world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

HISTORICAL MISSION:
We too are here to open eyes,  as Jesuis himself said before us,  when he picked up the Old Testament, the only bible Jesuis ever had.

As was the custom of the people in order to communicate to the village congregation the scripture of choice to comment on, Jesuis picked up the Bible and read. Do you recall what he read and what his comment was and what the reaction of the people was?
According to custom, Jesuis went to the synagogue on the Sabbath and stood up to read the scriptures from the book of the prophet Isaiah that was handed to him. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

He closed the book and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. He said, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
He went further and denounced the clergy’s supernatural teaching using two examples:
After reading from the Book of Isaiah at his coming out Jesus said,

But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;nbBut unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.”. AND WHICH Jews were forbidden to associate with as dictated by the supernatural Gods created by the cleric authors of the bible.

AND HE CONTINUED: “And there were many lepers in Israel at the time of the prophet Elisha but the only one cleansed was Naaman the Syrian.”  after which all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath for the contradicting the supernatural teachings of the Scribes and Pharisees that held the prophets were guided by God to go only to the good and righteous children of Israel.  And the congration rose up and thrust him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill………to throw him down head first over the cliff but he gave them the slip and was on his way.

That was the beginning of the Jesus mission: to help the poor and bring out into the open the only God there is, the “Father” within you, The Immanence; that is, the spirit guide and light inside every human being, not the supernatural magical hocus pocus gods created by the clergy for pence and power. Jesuis’s mission was to open the eyes of the people to the reality that “Truth was the authority” and not that “Authority (of the clergy) was truth”.
From that day forth, the Jews plotted to silence Jesus because he testified to the evil of their ways and for the next three years Jesuis dodged and darted about mingling with the oppressed masses, helping them, feeding them (by natural means, I hasten to add not by picking bread and fish out of thin air) and showing them what compassion and forgiveness and love of the Law was supposed to be like; in the meanwhile, dodging the religious zealots who sought to arrest and imprison him and eventually kill him..

Now don’t get me wrong here but Jesus, the real Jesus had to lie and deceive his enemies for self preservation to escape the clutches of those religious fanatics who wanted to manhandle him, arrest him, beat, bash and thrash him, assault, whip, scourge, browbeat, mock, punch, scratch, kick, lash, stab and nail his hands and feet to a tree ctoss. There is nothing wrong with lying and deceiving the religious pricks one has to hide from, to avoid, pass around, disguise from, leave by the back door, jump in the boat, pack up for the desert, to avoid their perverted religious insanity practicing a government of death. Jesus would have to do the same thing today if he was living in a theocracy or confronted by religious fundamentalists who would most certainly argue with him about the God Concept as they teach it. And hardly anything has changed; we are still taught about the backward and false supernatural messengers and the gods of the church compared to how Jesus understands the Spirit as the God “within”, and hated if you disagree,  which is exactly what happened two thousand years ago isn’t it?

Q & A’s………….
1. Do you believe Jesus’ crucifixion was unnecessary?

The crucifixion was neither necessary nor unnecessary; it was inevitable because of the way Jesus criticized the religious leaders of his time, the way they operated and the way they organized church religion.

2. Do you believe Jesus Christ really had to die to pay/atone for the sins of the world/mankind?

I do not believe that Jesuis died from the crucifixion, nor do I believe that the crucifixion paid for any atonement. For those who believe that the crucifixion paid for atonement, tell me after looking around at our world in chaos, if it accomplished atonement which word, separated by spaces means,,,,,,,,,at one ment,,,,,,,,with each other. The [proverb states the proof of the pudding is in the eating.  Is the world “At One Ment”? There is not atonment nor is that the reason Jesus was crucified. He was crucified because the sinful egos of religious men of whom Jesus testified, that their works were evil, tried to kill him.

3. Was it a perfect sacrifice for sin?

The crucifixion resulted because of the sins of chaos in the world that had no respect for the sanctity of life,  much like the violence we witness in our so called civilized societies today. Jesus was not crucified for sin but because of sin that was reigning in human egos.

4. Do you believe that Jesus Christ is actually the LORD of ALL as Christendom claims?

Jesus was a very special person who used his humanity to demonstrate that the good within all people needs only to manifest, brought out into the open; and, to live according to the good spirit within us all. A motto might be said like this: All there is of Good is available to S/HE who is available to all there is of Good. Jesus is as much a Lord as he was a Hero who revolutionized the world mindset that saw forgiveness and compassion as the more noble virtues to replace the revenge concept of “eye for an eye” and “tooth for a tooth” which was the practice up to the time of his “coming out”, into the open. Christendom today pays lip service to Jesus, as they did to God, in those days when reading the words of wise men. Jesus quoted Isaiah as words coming from the Father within Isaiah. When the Pharisees and Scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”
 He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:
‘This people honors Me with their lips,
 But their heart is far from Me.
 And in vain they worship Me,
 teaching as doctrines the commandment rules of men.’

5. Do you believe Jesus Christ died, and then 3 days later walked out of the tomb alive?

No. I believe Jesuis was removed and carried from the tomb and nursed back to health until he could walk again after the healing,  by Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus, his close friends, secret disciples and confidants. Joseph after all, had hewn “out his own tomb” for two years in anticipation of this moment in time he knew was coming and I believe secreted an escape tunnel in the hewing.  This can easily be explained and demonstrated how the stone covering the tomb entrance rolled away on its own after the escape,  leaving no trace of the tunnel. All that was left in the tomb were the grave clothes Nicodemus and Joseph prepared Jesus body with after Joseph was given permission to remove the body from the cross by the authority of Pilate.

6. Are you saying that all of us, no matter what our belief system, has the Almighty God inside us already?

We are endowed from birth with two marvelous pieces of engineering, the brain and its ability to memorize everything it learns throughout our lives and therein lies the Father within. The Immanence is what we refer to as God/s by any name, in any and every generation; the various God/s names come and go but the Immanence remains.

7. Do you believe, that as long as we don’t hurt ourselves or anyone else, we can do what we please?

I would not qualify behavior, as being bad, although …..hurting ourselves or others is…..but rather I would define behavior as pleasing the righteousness that we learn through life without neglecting the love of ourselves and of others, acknowledging the Immanence.  Therefore properly defined,  “behavior” is Good or it is not Good.

8. Do you believe that the only way to have eternal life is through Jesus Christ? (as in believing He shed His blood on the cross for our sins, and if we don’t believe that we will go to hell?)

NO! to the (as in believing….. etc…..) You must understand that the kingdom of heaven is a concept in the mind for that “place” is where the kingdom resides; Luke 17:20-21 Jesus speaking. In like manner, therein also resides, The Immanence or The Exclusion(Denial); i.e., the concept of hell , a metaphor describing the absence of heaven or the Immanence nonmanifest.  I learned through Jesus that eternal life was conscious, conscience with knowledge and acknowledgement; not belief, and I can vouch that Jesus opened my mind, excited my understanding of him and his message and that teaching was from his life I hasten to add, not from his crucifixion; I cannot say that this message can not be learned by others by different ways and means, after all, Jesus learned it himself through his own consciousness, understanding and memory; in other words, experiential knowledge;  and, Jesus referred to that as the Father; aka, the Immanence ( aka, the highest powers) and to himself as the Son because he manifested the Immanence reflection using the human analogy Father/Son as a metaphor to explain his understanding of God.

The human mind is like two wolves, the “Good” wolf and the “not Good” wolf and the one that comes out on top, to govern and manifest behavior, is the one you feed the most. The Cherokee Legend:


CHIEF: A fight is going on inside every human person between two wolves. One excludes good, (Exclusion, Denial): S/HE is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good; The Immanence: S/HE is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, faithful to integrity.                                                                                                                      GRANDSON: Which wolf will win?
                                                                                            CHIEF: The one you feed.
