It seems strange to me that after 2,000 years Christ’s One new commandment hasn’t been added to the ten old commandments, so that Christians can be free! The eleventh commandment is contained in John 13:34 and states “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you” This is a personal metaphysical/Spiritual commandment that should be applied by all Christians. Why? Because if you are carrying out this commandment you automatically are filling out the old ten commandments and doing even more!
The eleventh commandment is critical to following the Christ (I Am) not Jesus (who became The Christ after fasting in the desert for 40 full days!). If you follow Jesus, and not the Christ, you are simply another cultist. The idea with any messenger of God is to go to the messenger and through the messenger to the Holy Spirit. If you stop at the messenger you become a cultist. How can you recognise a cultist? “One way Jesus” is one of their calls!
When Jesus the man spoke He spoke in three ways. “I” is Jesus the man. “We” is Jesus and God (in the form of the Holy Spirt) speaking. And “I Am” is God/the Holy Spirit talking alone! Thus “I Am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by I Am” ( John 14:6) and also “before Abraham was, I Am (was already existent)” (John 8:58).
We must go through Jesus to the Holy Spirit to be reborn into the fire of God. My name is J’iam which actually means “hand of I Am” which in turn means “servant of the holy spirit.” Why is this so import – the Holy spirit? Because this is the knowable essence of God. There is also an unknowable essence of God, but man can never know that essence. The closest we can come to God in this life is through the Holy Spirit – whose name is I AM.
If you consider this revelation of the Holy Spirit then each and every messenger of God is also a Christ. Zoroaster (who sent the three Magi [Zoroastrian Priests] to the birth of Jesus [like one master greeting the birth of another]) was also imbued with the Christ Spirit. So we can correctly call him Zoroaster Christ. As was Muhammed – Muhammed Christ. As was the Buddha – Buddha Christ. And so forth, for all the messengers of God!
So back to the eleventh commandment – That ye love one another; as I have loved you”. One is the old English word for yourself – “How is one today?” Another is the old English word for others (English has changed a lot in the past 400 years!). So the first part means Love yourself and others! The second part means to Love yourself and others as the Christ Loves us. And how is that? Why wholly and unconditionally, of course! So in modern English the complete commandment reads, ” Love yourself and others, wholly and unconditionally” Do this and you become an internal refection of the I Am. “as with, so without – as above, so below” (this is a Hermetic saying, not actually biblical. But it is so true it has been taken up by Christians because the source was obviously the Christ, I Am). It is reflected today in the saying, “Think globally, act locally” It is exactly the same principle – “as without. so within”.
The spiritual truth is that God Loves who the Most? God loves God first and Foremost! We are made in the image of God so who should we love the most? Why the god within us, of course – the I AM (not the I). Only after loving our true selves can we love others (“as with..”) Love ourselves wholly and Unconditionally and then we can love others wholly and unconditionally! We can only practice on others, what we practice on/within ourselves! That is the basic simplicity of the eleventh commandment!
To Love ourselves holy and unconditionally we have to subjugate the “I” to the “I Am“. We have to substitute our own free will for God’s will. Only in this way can we start living as a Christ-ians and attain the state of heaven on earth! Is this not why the messengers of God come to us, with new messages every 700 to 1,000 years? To ready us for separation from the earth with the eternal? Is not the best way to learn to drive a car to drive a toy car first as a child? So it is with separation from this world. At death the body and ego die, are annihilated. Best we not be only living in either of those states. So what is left? The spiritual state. If we live in the spiritual state we are practically living in heaven on earth, so when we die it is seen as an release from the body and the brain. But these two are still useful to us here on earth and can become very good friends indeed! But only on the understanding that “even the best of friends must part at some stage” and for us that separation is death. And the death of the body and brain are like the release of the dove into the sky. Death is seen by the spiritual as a reward, by the body and brain as a punishment if they are in control!
Another way of looking at it is to imagine we are caterpillars. So there are two catapillars sitting on a leaf when a butterfly flew overhead and one turned to the other and said. “You’ll never catch me up in one of those things!” LOL! Caterpillars don’t really know about the chrysalis – they only feel the urge to eat, eat, eat! Which grows them to such a size the must enter a chrysalis! Death is Man’s (note the capital M) chrysalis! The body and brain make up man (note the small m), whilst the soul is called Man. That is why the wise start calling man and woman “male and female” because Man is a non-sexual state of soul and it matters not if you are male or female to become a Man. What matters is you souls actions. And your souls actions should be guided by the eleventh commandment, that “You love yourself, and others, wholly and unconditionally“
amen, amen, amen
