(3) Jesus said : “If those who lead You say to You : ‘See, the Kingdom is in heaven !’, then the birds of the sky will be there before You. If they say to You, ‘It is in the sea !’, then the fish will be there before You. But the Kingdom is inside You and outside You. When You know yourselves, then You will be known, and You will know that You are the children of the Living Father. But if You do not know yourselves, then You dwell in poverty ; then You are that poverty.”
He is referring to Heaven being partially a state of mind but is also outside of us when we come to having the understanding required in order to see it! “When we know ourselves” is a reference to becoming ‘Honest with Ourselves!”.
This act of becoming Honest with Ourselves is a requirement in order to increase our intelligence and start to understand clearly our relationship and connection with, not only the Power within Nature (God or Father), but with the rest of Nature as well.
Those who are not willing to become Honest with themselves will never have understanding or True happiness within their lives. Becoming Honest with yourself requires questioning everything you were raised on and throwing out any beliefs that don’t make logical sense.
Even 2,000 years ago people were being raised on massive amounts of indoctrinations and you will see further on in Christ’s teachings where he refers back to these and talks about hating his own parents because of the indoctrinations they tried to pass onto him. Oh, and he refers back to his biological father as well.
Anyone who doesn’t become ‘Honest with Themselves’ will ultimately dwell in a life of mediocrity and it will never get any better than that!
If you have any comments on this, please feel free to leave them!
Have a Great Day!
