Sabrina, I am ever so confused as to why you refer to God as being God and the creator, and quoting Jesus and God. Now, not being a believer of god and Jesus Christ, and I believe neither are you; why are these references here and are we being asked to respond 'to "Jesus clearly states, “The Kingdom of God is within you!”' Are you asking us as readers to believe in Jesus and that he existed as the son of God on our earth, or you asking us to believe that he existed as a person who believes there is a creator of the universe, & that creator was his father, who is not a real person like him, and who did not live on earth? I am really confused why these references like 'God' 'Christ' are used by you when they are biblical terms.I am sure there is a reason & am just not getting it, so maybe I need to be enlightend, to allow me to continue without these terms confusing me.
There are many names you can use for God....some people may use Allah, OM, Universe, The Great One, Heavenly Father, Lord, Alpha and Omega etc....all of these names lead to the same omnipresent energy of Creation.
In my book ~ I say God or The Creator interchangeably as they are the same thing. For me God worked better in some sentences and the Creator sounded better in other sentences. Sorry if it confused you.
You are right, I am not a believer of God or Jesus Christ. I KNOW them personally. It is a relationship I have....it is a knowingness ~ a energy that runs through me that I have awakened myself to. All beings have the same potential to awaken to this awareness of the Christ and God Within. All of my work whether it be on my blog, on my facebook page, in my healing sessions etc.....is to help people move beyond the belief in God so they can have a DIRECT EXPERIENCE of God. Once this occurs, you will know and experience truth, you will remember who you are.
Yes, the Kingdom of God is within you. You are a spiritual being having a human experience ~ you think you are just human but you are actually a vast multidimensional being. Each one of us are an extension of God....a divine spark and we are always connected to God ~ never separated. It is our belief in separation from God that keeps us stuck in the illusion of separation and creates all the pain and suffering on the planet. We could not be alive if we were separated from God because it is God's energy that is in every living thing......everything is an aspect of God. The air you breathe, the water you drink, the animals, family, friends etc....are all extensions of God. We are literally submersed within the energy of God ~ God surrounds us and runs through us. God is everywhere, everything ~ All Knowing.
We are ALL sons and daughters of God. No need to put Jesus or Buddha or anyone else up on a pedestal....Jesus clearly states ~ what he can do we can do and more. Jesus the Christ was an extension of God (just like you and I) who incarnated into a physical body to be an example for humanity. He volunteered to come here to show us the way back to God because humanity, as a whole, had fallen into a very low state of consciousness. The way back to God is an inner path, we must choose for ourselves, that will activate our hearts. The heart is the seat of the soul. Once the heart is activated, the soul is awakened and our god consciousness is restored.
In Aramaic CHRIST means SOUL. The SOUL (heart) is the bridge to the God mind..... in essence we are little god's. We are gods in amnesia connected to The Creator of All That Is ~ but most of humanity has blocks and barriers within their energy fields that keep them from experiencing this truth. Inner work, meditation, releasing distorted beliefs and releasing our toxic stored emotions in our energy fields helps us to clear away the blocks and barriers (veils of amnesia) that keep our egoic consciousness stuck in separation and duality.
There are three Christ:
1. Jesus the Christ: the man
2. Our own Christ Self (the soul)
3. The Cosmic Christ which is the energy of the photon belt which activates the awakening of the Christ Consciousness within each person who chooses to activate it from their own free will.
The Creator of All That Is / God is ENERGY that lives within and around all living forms ~ God is incarnated here on Earth in all living beings. Basically, we are gods in human form and the Creator experiences itself through us.
It is important for us to not get caught up in 3D terms and to look at everything as multidimensional. When we get sick, there is never just one reason why we get sick. There is an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual reason for every ailment. Likewise we can not put God, Christ, ourselves or anyone else in a nice, neat little box. It is time to start thinking outside the parameters of the box and to see things from a new perspective. It is time for us to awaken to the truth of who we are and that can only occur through dedication to our own inner spiritual work.
I have written a book called "Raise Your Vibration" that will help you clean out the blocks and barriers to your Christ/Buddhic/God Self. PURCHASE BOOK HERE
