Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
The circumstance of my life for the past few months has afforded the opportunity to walk among and interact with people whose identity, meaning, and purpose is, by their admission, anchored in a way of being or consciousness that "sees" itself in the context of outwardly reflected political and religious ideologies, theologies, traditions, creeds, and practices and the process through which those reflections occur.
The process of meaning, purpose, and identity being reflected through the mirrors of outward political and religious, intellectual constructs eclipses the direct experience of meaning, purpose, and identity anchored in and informed by the direct immanent presence itself in itself. Political and religious teachers, leaders, and professors nurture this process through which they and those who adhere to their outward political and religious, intellectual constructs. This process, in itself, eclipses or overshadows a different way of being available to each person.
There is a way of being on this earth wherein the conscious and conscience of people is anchored in and informed by the direct experience of the promise of Jesus Christ historically fulfilled in the event at Pentecost.
In my travels over these past few months, I have walked among and talked with hundreds of people. I have met with people who support Donald Trump. I have met with people who support Bernie Sanders. I have met with people who are religious, agnostic, atheist, etc. I have met with people marching in support of "Black Lives Matter." I have met with people marching against "Black Lives Matter." I have met with people and groups who have left Yearly Meetings because they do not wish to associate with people who are sexually intimate with people of the same sex. I have met with people who are sexually intimate with people of the same sex and do not wish to associate with people who do not embrace their sexual identity. I have met with people who identify with various outward political and religious constructs.
In my travels and conversations, there is one thing shared by all: The process of group and individual meaning, purpose, identity, conscious, and conscience, formed by and through reflective consciousness. They readily and universally admit that their conscious and conscience is anchored in and informed by the ideological constructs they reflect upon or which is given to them and to which they adhere.
I had long discussions with people about the nature of the process of a conscious and conscience anchored in outward political and religious constructs and that this process nurtures conflict.
I am so thankful for a different way of life wherein conscious, and conscience is formed by and through the direct experience of immanent Presence itself in itself and to realize the promise salvation through experiencing eternal life in all moments and circumstances of daily life of this earth.
My identity, meaning, and purpose is in the Life itself, formed and guided by direct immanent Presence itself. By the power of the inward Light, conscious and conscience is anchored in and guided by immanent resonance. The eclipse of outward political and religious, ideologies, theologies, creeds, and practices that once overshadowed, anchored, and informed, my conscious and conscience is lifted, and I AM born again in every moment and in all circumstances of daily life. The Life itself is sufficient in itself in all things.
