As usual, the disciples take Jesus literally here. He points out a baby that takes
the milk of this mother with faith and without prejudice. His students then think
to behave like children to enter eternity. This is a common misunderstanding

People rush to become adults only to reminisce for the days of childhood as soon
as they reach adulthood. There are even ascetics in the East who defecate upon
themselves and wander around like babies. All of this under the misguided notion
that children are all that can enter the kingdom of perfection.

This is a simile, “like those who enter the kingdom.” Children are without
prejudice. The key is to learn everything without building prejudices, then you
can then see what is really before you.

Children are not innocent, no one is. That is correct, we are all ancient and have
lived numberless lifetimes. You do not get a human body without learning the
basics of single-celled life, all the way to multi-celled life, finally to animal and
human. A simple analogy serves.

What you think of as automatic is just that which you have learned already.
Remember learning to walk, or at least, watch a child. When he or she begins, it
is a tentative business of wobbling and weaving. By the age of your reading this,
you have hopefully mastered unconscious walking. Some can even chew gum at
the same time.

So, what you think of as automatic, is just something you have already mastered.
Therefore, all of the cellular operations you imagine as grace, were earned. You
are neither innocent nor guilty, though you are worthy of this human body. Now
life itself, the first time you receive it, that is the grace of the universe.


Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the
inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the
below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that
the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the
place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot,
and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the kingdom."

We have already discussed the first part, how to make the two one. To reiterate
quickly here, we are of two polarities, positive and negative, masculine and
feminine. When we can balance our forms, we are no longer in disequilibrium.
And thus, we enter perfection. We neither advocate bisexuality or androgyny
here, nor do we condemn it.

However we do advocate the balancing of your own poles, such that your
masculine and feminine are in balance. Some call these poles Yin and Yang. The
easiest way to think about it is when your thoughts and deeds line up.

Yet the master goes further. He talks about the five senses again, though in a
seemingly meaningless manner. Your eye itself does not see, nor does your hand
touch. There is something within you that interprets the signals of these organs.
Most objective scientists believe it is the brain that processes the signals. But
what interprets the brain?

You are not the brain, as they can remove large parts of it without changing your
personality. Imagine the person who loses long and short term memory and still
has the same personality with accompanying behavior. Or, the rare occurrence of
an individual who loses almost all of the major portions of the brain yet retains

If there is one exception to a theory it is incomplete. You are not the brain either.
So the question remains, what interprets ALL of the signals, including the brain?
Your soul does. It is the animating energy that does so. This is the “eye in the
place of the eye.” The Upanisads call this the “eye of the eye,” and the “ear of the
ear,” etc.


(23) Jesus said, "I shall choose you, one out of a thousand, and two out of
ten thousand, and they shall stand as a single one."
