The Bible, as we may know, represents symbolised analogies as a means of Self-realization; biblically phrased, this means coming upon [our] full humanity or developing expanded consciousness. By internalizing scriptural “Jesus” as an inward process rather that an outward, we eternalize Christ Nature as our everyday functioning consciousness — facilitating conscious awareness of our soul’s unbounded eternal status.
For example, when decoded beyond their literal interpretation, the following two verses are indicative of the process of soul disentanglement from generational conditioning thereby allow experiencing through expanded or cosmic consciousness.
For, in their literal dogmatized format — and jesus a gospel of love associated understandings — these and similar scriptures, from an instructional standpoint, make absolutely no sense whatsoever. But, when decoded esoterically – non-literally – their kernel revelation, spiritually speaking, is truly life-changing. The pivotal point in both these scriptures is the vital interpretive understanding formulated around the two “I”s, for they are not one and the same as presented:
“And I, if I be lifted up from this earth, shall draw all men unto me”. John 12.32 KJV – and,
“Where I go you cannot come, but I go to prepare a place for you”. John 13.36.
Now compare the same two scriptures paraphrased (in brackets).
“And I, (eternally-existing consciousness) shall draw all men (divine manifestation) unto me (Christ consciousness lived spontaneously”), [on condition that] if I (lower-self ego) be lifted up from this earth (raising our consciousness from the quagmire of “sin” nature).
“Where I go (Transcendence) you (material world / conditioned lower ego / duality) cannot come, [due to] (non-purified aspect of soul) but I go (process of ego becoming crucified) to prepare (integration or neutralizing of past karmic patterns) a place (state of purified consciousness) for you (experiential eternal Christ nature”).
In both scriptures, John is saying: if [our] lower “I” ego conditioning becomes integrated by means of [our] higher “I” thus, [our] consciousness, on becoming raised — rather than the recurring lower suffering nature — shall manifest (live / create) from that Higher spiritual domain of love, peace and spiritual abundance.
Like so many of scripture’s coded verses, the previous two are indicative of an inner process: that of raising lower-self “I” by means of Higher Self “I” [in meditation] thus leading to purification of embedded subconscious “sin” content; in other words, residual karmic patterns becoming neutralized forever resulting in pure or expanded consciousness.
It should be emphasised that the Higher Christ “I” which raises our consciousness already exists within each person, but, that, we come upon it consciously.
