Jesus perfectly understood the central dynamic on earth. This dynamic is very simple and can be learned by reading Jesus’ words carefully. The dynamic is that most human beings are trapped in an illusion. This illusion makes us think we are separated from our source, from God and the spiritual realm.
Some people are so deceived by this illusion that they deny the existence of a spiritual realm and spiritual beings. Others believe there is a spiritual realm, but they are convinced that they are separated from it by a barrier that they themselves cannot cross. Only very special people can cross that barrier and they themselves can enter heaven only by obeying a religion on earth.
What Jesus taught and demonstrated is that this is a complete lie. You are not actually separated from the kingdom of God because it is within you. What does this mean? It means that the kingdom of God is a state of consciousness.
Right now most people are in a state of consciousness dominated by separation. This is the state that Jesus called “death” and it makes you convinced that you are separated from God. Yet this sense of separation is a complete illusion, cleverly created and upheld by the prince of this world. This prince will do anything in his power to keep you trapped in the illusion of separation, including using an outer religion. This outer religion makes you believe that if you accept its doctrines and follow its rules, you are guaranteed to be saved after this lifetime.
Jesus preached that the kingdom of God is at hand, meaning you will never attain it in the future. You will attain it only in the NOW because the key to the kingdom is to overcome the consciousness of separation, the consciousness of anti-christ, and raise your consciousness until you can embrace the consciousness of Christ. This is how you escape death and attain the life that the Christ consciousness offers to all.
