I haven’t really read all of the new testament, i tried one time but the old timey phrasing makes it a quite hard boring read imo

 

but he did proclaim he was god and taught love

in that sense was he closer to the truth than other prophets of the abrahamic faiths like moses, mohammed etc? Because i don’t think moses, mohammed etc proclaimed they were god and also were more violent

My opinion is that Jesus was as enlightened as Eckhart Tolle, Sadguru, Leo, Buddha, Ramana Maharishi, and maybe even @PurpleTree (they all say the same thing.)

And the rest of Christianity is just fabricated wishful thinking and delusion. Think of the scale of self deception that Christianity and all religions have reached! It's utterly mind blowing how billions of adults in 2023 can be convinced that an ancient magic Jew is needed to save you from going to hell!

It’s utterly intelligent. If there weren’t billions of religious adults, what’s the alternative? Billions of Simpsons characters?

The major problem with all religions is that they consist of written texts that may not be printed exactly in the way they meant initially. It's similiar to Chinese whispering. Atleast in that game, people were innocently playing it. But, spiritual texts are passed on for generations and powerful people might wish to alter it to suit their needs without any records. Just my opinion, though. This is all considering the ones who wrote it were Gods or enlightened or pure hearted.

It would certainly make sense with the hippie stuff he was blabbering and couldn’t shut up about

You are quite the character. 


Thought = Time. Without thought there's no time. Death is the end of the illusion.

I like what you did there.


You are a selfless LACK OF APPEARANCE, that CONSTRUCTS AN APPEARANCE. But that appearance can disappear and reappear and we call that change, we call it time, we call it space, we call it distance, we call distinctness, we call it other. But notice...this appearance, is a SELF. A SELF IS A CONSTRUCTION!!! 

So if you want to know the TRUTH OF THE CONSTRUCTION. Just deconstruct the construction!!!! No point in playing these mind games!!! No point in creating needless complexity!!! The truth of what you are is a BLANK!!!! A selfless awareness....then that means there is NO OTHER, and everything you have ever perceived was JUST AN APPEARANCE, A MIRAGE, AN ILLUSION, IMAGINARY. 

Everything that appears....appears out of a lack of appearance/void/no-thing, non-sense (can't be sensed because there is nothing to sense). That is what you are, and what arises...is made of that. So nonexistence, arises/creates existence. And thus everything is solved.

Mohammad was a tribal political leader in addition to a mystic.

Mohammad was not really Awakened, he was a mystical channeler, which is different.

I have met very mystically gifted spritual people but they were not Awake. Don't confuse the two.

@PurpleTree people back then had so many less distractions. We are in a sense a matrix of distraction right now.

We were indoctrinated into living through a screen. Through cartoons pornography video games soap opera bullshit. The internet is a massive distraction from God.

Can you speak more on this? What’s been your experience with “mystical channellers”

What is a mystical channeler, @Leo Gura? Can you explain it in simple terms?

Was Muhammad an ego?

Sure 

native americans used peyote/mescaline for at least 6000 yrs (the oldest known psychedelic this far)

greeks probably used ergot (from which lsd was synthezised)

and probably much more

You can easily find channelers and clarivoyant healers and so on. These people have some kind of altered state of consciousness from birth, they tend to be very spiritually intuitive and gifted, but they are not conscious that they are God.

These are people like Teal Swan. They relate to God as other, as a higher power. They can have legit spiritual insight, wisdom, and paranormal powers, but none of that is God-Realization.

Muhammad was a gifted, intuitive channeler. He was not like Ramana Maharshi. Frankly, Jesus too was probably more like Muhammad than Ramana Maharshi.

Of course we will never know for sure, these are just best guesses. Don't get hung up on this.

As I said, some people are born with mystical abilities and states of consciousness. There are thousands of such people around the world.

Teal Swan in one example.
