“Jesus is the spiritual lens in human likeness which makes visible to the material creature Him who is invisible…. But all of this must consist in the personal experience of the ‘individual believer.’ God who is spirit can be known only as a spiritual experience.” [UB 169:4]
Thought Adjuster: “How can an Infinite Being make Himself known to finite creatures? By incarnating in human form to role model the many divine attributes. Jesus proclaimed: “Those who have seen Me have seen the Father.” However, not everyone understood His statement, and His detractors claimed He was of the devil.
“What does it tell you? Ask yourself how you view your siblings. Do you make rash judgments as to their personality or do you take the time to get to know them through personal interaction?
“You cannot know others by perfunctorily glancing at them. Friendships are born through in-depth interactions. Each unique personality is multi-faceted, and you cannot get to know anyone through a cookie cutter approach. How much more so when it pertains to the sublime Personality of the Giver of all personalities!
“How do you ‘spiritually’ experience God? A mere intellectual approach will never suffice, as you cannot experience Love intellectually. How did Jesus experience God? By living a life grounded in the divine attributes of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness—Love in Action—thus establishing unwavering compatibility with the Divine.
“How compatible are you? It is a crucial question to ask yourself to jumpstart your spiritual journey inward and Godward. Your character flaws hold you back and need to be dealt with one by one for you to thrive in your Godlikeness. The more thoroughly you open your heart, the more you will have spiritual chemistry with Me, your Divine Indweller. You may have heard of Me, but how well do you know Me?
“By allocating time daily to go within and reach out to Me, you will set your spiritual life in motion, living life from a heightened perspective—tending to your inner butterfly, the ethereal being that will take its maiden flight once it breaks through the cocoon of its current down-to-earth limitations.”
