Probably the greatest barrier to the enlightenment of the human race is that we are not interested in the truth; only the truth as we understand it.
Another passage from the Bible that has been misinterpreted by Christians over the centuries is “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”, uttered by Jesus (John 14:6). Here I will endeavour to look at this statement from a different angle, but first we need to break it down.
“I” refers to “God The Father” or the Universal Absolute that exists beyond matter, beyond astral energy; and indeed beyond all forms of vibratory creation.
“I Am” refers to this Divine Entity manifested as “form” in the Universe and beyond.
“the way, the truth, and the life” refers to the fact that God in its subtlest form exists as light energy that permeates every single cell of creation. This guiding light is “the way” to “the truth” (or self-realisation) which awakens us to “the life” (eternal). Most human beings have lost sight of their divinity and therefore endure a living death here on Earth, oblivious to “the life”.
“no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” also has a much deeper and more profound meaning than the one normally perceived. As has been stated many times before “Son of God” refers to the Christ Intelligence or Christ Consciousness that is present within all human beings, and not a man of flesh called Jesus Christ. However, because Jesus was a fully realised soul he had achieved oneness with that Christ Consciousness and this is why he identified himself with it. It should also be stated that as a self-realised soul, Jesus had completely shed all traces of his ego, therefore when he said “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”, he was speaking from the standpoint of a soul who was “One with the Father” and not as a man speaking from the standpoint of the ego-self. In other words he was simply making a helpful and insightful statement of spiritual truth as opposed to “I’m the big cheese around here and you wont be allowed to find God unless you approach this body”. Indeed directly after making this statement Jesus said “If you knew me you would know my Father too” (John 14:7), indicating that he had come to the realisation that we are all most definitely “One” regardless of race, colour, creed or social status.
Jesus Christ was simply an example of someone who actually lived this Oneness whilst being encased in flesh.
