Many believe spirituality and religion are considered interconnected, but it is not so. Religion is based on the false Self-(ego or body or you) and it is limited to the false experience (universe), while spirituality transcends race, religion, gender, language and nationality, and universe. Spirituality is based on the Soul the innermost Self. On the standpoint of the Soul the innermost Self, the universe in which we exist is mere an illusion:
Jesus said: ~ Do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you. (Matthew -7:6)
He meant Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana (pearls) should not be given to the ignorant populace (pigs)
Jesus really say? To the multitude he said, “God is in heaven; try to go there,” and to reach that end he said to overcome certain temptations and sufferings.
To his followers, he said, “God is everywhere; try to see Him.” and gave explanations to that effect.
To the close circle of apostles he said, “God is in me and in you too,” and actually revealed this to them.
Why did Jesus say different things? Owing to the time and the persons, according to their readiness to listen and understand. What Jesus meant was to leave all and follow him; that means to know him, see him, and experience him.
The teachings that are being followed by Christians are not the real teachings that Christ gave. The priests have altered his words, added to his teachings and spoiled them.
Jesus said: ~ Seek and ye shall find. Knock the doors shall opened to you.
Gospel Thomas logian 22:- Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples, “These infants being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom.”
They said to him, “Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?”
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 is 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.”
Santthosh Kumaar: ~ This above passage is Jesus’s version of Nonduality or Advaita. When one realizes mind (matter) and Soul (spirit), the innermost Self, are one, in essence, there is no place for the duality. Without the duality, the universe ceases to exist. Without the universe, your existence within the universe is mere an illusion because there is scope for two because everything is created out of single stuff. That single stuff is the consciousness or Spirit.
Till one thinks he is an individual separate from this world he remains in the realm of duality. The duality is the product of ignorance. When the wisdom dawns, then the ignorance vanishes. When the ignorance vanishes, then the duality never remains as a reality.
God is not physical. God is present in the form of the Spirit. The Spirit is the cause of the world and the Spirit itself is uncaused.
On the standpoint of the Spirit, the form, time, space and name are mere an illusion. The spirit alone is real and all else is an illusion. In reality, the spirit (God) matter (the world in which we exist) are one.
