Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
The spirit of Jesus Christ is come and in Christ's presence I am drawn out of the reflective nature and drawn into the direct awareness of the increase and decrease of the intensity of Christ's presence as the faculty through which my interactions and relationships are guided.
In the presence of Christ, I am not of the reflective nature and do not participate or engage in the reflective process, or own the thought-entities manifested through the reflective nature, to guide and inform human relationships and interactions.
Thought-entities manifested through the reflective nature do not inform my understanding of human relations and interactions. Engaging the agency of the reflective nature, and using its thought-agents to inform human relations, discovers to me a decrease in the intensity of Christ's presence in my intellect. Christ's presence in my conscience discovers to me that the source and cause of all human conflict and strife is the reflective nature itself. Participation in the agency of the reflective nature, and the use of its thought-entities to guide and inform human relations, promotes and nurtures conflict in human relations. Christ is discovered to me the way out of conflict and strife is through the turning of the intellect to the living presence of Jesus Christ in the conscience and consciousness as sole guide in matters of human relations. As long as the human intellect is ruled by the reflective nature there will be conflict and strife.
The renewal of the mind is the intellect anchored in the living awareness of and habitation in the presence of Jesus Christ in the conscience and consciousness. Christ's presence fulfills the need for the faculty of reflection (the Old Covenant), and the thought agents manifested through it, to guide and inform human relations. The need for the faculty of the reflective nature to guide and inform human relations is come to an end with the coming of the presence of Christ in my conscience; which is the New Covenant. The faculty of the reflective nature in the intellect is replaced by the faculty of living awareness of the increase or decrease of the intensity of the spirit of Christ in a given action or interaction to guide human relations.
