THE TRANSFIGURATION OF JESUS TO CHRIST
Mathew chapter 17, 1-13, New International Version
“17 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”
6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified. 7 But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” 8 When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, “Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”
10 The disciples asked him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?”
11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. 12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.”
The story here is straight forward, Jesus took three of his apostles, Peter, John, and James, and went up a mountain. First, they saw him transformed into light form and later Moses and Elijah joined him, also in light form. Thereafter, they heard a voice from God saying that Jesus is his son in whom he is well pleased and urged them to listen to him. Jesus told them to keep the vision secret until he is resurrected from death.
Do you believe that this story is true or is it a quaint middle eastern metaphor that those of us who are not from the Middle East do not understand?
Here is the explanation. We, the sons of God, separated from God and from each other and formed our universe of space, time, and matter and used matter to construct bodies for each of us. Each of us now sees himself in a body made of matter; matter is the dense form of light.
Matter was constructed from physical light…first was the light that came out during the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago; that light shattered into particles, photons; photons were used to construct electrons and quarks; quarks were used to construct protons and neutrons; neutrons and protons are held together in the nuclei of atoms by the strong nuclear force; the nuclei can be broken by the weak nuclear force; the electromagnetic force keeps electrons circling around nuclei; the force of gravity attracts all objects in space to each other.
All matter (consisting of the 118 elements in the universe…hydrogen, helium, lithium, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, iron and Uranian, #92, plus the 20 elements that scientists made in laboratories); are made from particles that are made from light.
Our body is composed of 64 elements, mainly carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium. Our bodies are molecules of many bonded elements.
Molecules, elements, and particles that form our bodies are made from light. Thus, where we see our bodies is not only matter but light.
It may be difficult for you to believe but you have two bodies, one made of matter, and the other made of light (purify your mind’s eyes with love and forgiveness and you will see your light body and other people’s light bodies).
We separated from God and from each other 13.8 billion years ago and transformed physical light to matter and used matter to form stars, planets, plants, animals, and our bodies. (Physical light was projected out as the opposite of spiritual light…that subject is beyond the scope of this brief essay.)
WE ARE HIDING FROM GOD AND FROM OUR TRUE SELVES
We now seem to live in bodies made of matter. We transformed light to matter and used matter to form our bodies because we are hiding from God and from each other.
I look at your body and cannot see what you are thinking, and you look at my body and cannot know what I am thinking. Thus, we are now strangers to each other.
More importantly, body, matter, space, and time were designed to enable us separate from union, from love, and from God and live as special, separated selves, live as the opposite of love, the opposite of unified spirit.
THE SEPARATING EGO AND THE UNIFYING HOLY SPIRIT
The moment that the sons of God appeared to have separated from him and from each other and housed themselves in matter, God created the Holy Spirit; the function of the Holy Spirit is to reunify God’s now seeming separated selves.
The Holy Spirit immediately transformed the bodies of matter we made into bodies of light forms. He also transformed the separated world we made into a world of light forms.
Yes, you now have two bodies, one of matter and another of light.
To see your body of light you must return to love and love God and all people. If you accept separation from Love, God, union, and do not love other people you will only see you as made of matter but not see your body of light.
If you start loving your real self, the son of God in you and in all people and love God you will start seeing you, other people, animals, trees, everything in light form.
This first occurred to me on a long walk in the forest; suddenly, the entire forest was made of light, the trees, land, everything was in light form.
I have seen the old boy, Jesus Christ in pure light form and we talked, and my mission explained to me (to do what you see me do, teach about God).
I have seen me in light form. But we are not here talking about my visions and spiritual experiences.
The salient point is that each of us, you, and I, have two bodies, one made of dense matter, and another made of light form.
Both body of matter and physical light are not who we are. Who we are, is not in form. Your true self, my real self is formless; it is an idea, the idea of the son of God; God is the idea of the whole and each of us is the idea of the part of that whole.
You are not a tangible object that can be seen; you cannot see God and his sons in their true state; they are beyond perception. They can be known; you know them when you love them; only love returns you to the awareness of God; God is formless (God is always in you; he is the life in you and all creation).
CORRUPTED AND PURIFEID, GLORIFIED BODY
Christians call the body of matter corrupted body; it dies and decays and over thousands of years returns to light; the body of light form is called the purified or glorified body; it does not die, it simply disappears into the formless self that is our real self, the son of God and into God.
The body of matter is the house of the ego special, separated self; the body of light form is the body of Christ.
Try loving all people and God and you would see Jesus Christ in his light form, and it would look like the sun’s light.
I do not intend to get carried away by theology and metaphysics because most people are not yet ready to understand the nature of God, by their choice; what I want to say is that it is absolutely true that the Holy Spirit transformed the physical body of Jesus into light form and showed that light form to his most spiritually advanced disciples, James and John, and that the disciples saw him, Jesus talk to Moses and Elijah.
All these are facts that you can verify for yourself if you truly take the God that you talk flippantly seriously. If you take the idea of God seriously, know that God is love and love God and all his creation, you can be in your room and the room disappears and you find yourself in a world of light forms and you are now talking with the enlightened persons of your religion (Jesus and the prophets if you are a Christian, with Buddha if a Buddhist and so on).
This new world is called the world of light forms; it is exactly like our present world except that everything in it is made of light, people, animals, plants, stars, planets, galaxies are all made of light …as they are even in our world, although our desire not to love dispose us to see them in dark matter forms.
The world of light forms is called various names by different religions, Muslims call it paradise, I call it the gate of heaven, Catholicism calls it purgatory, Hinduism calls it the astral world; it is where those who have returned to loving God and all his creation live awaiting the human beings still on earth to change their minds and become loving and then join us and thereafter we all disappear into the formless world of God, aka heaven.
In heaven, we know ourselves as one shared self with one shared mind; oneself that has infinite units all of them knowing themselves as oneself.
God is a subject that cannot be understood with our current rational ego separated minds.
For our present purposes, Jesus did transfigure into a light form of him; eventually, he was crucified and died on the cross and resurrected in his light form and showed his light form, what Christians call the new self, the glorified self, in light form to his disciples.
A little over a month later, Jesus Christ disappeared into the formless world of God and from there visits the world of light forms, which you can see if you choose to be a totally loving and forgiving person.
God is love; we chose to live as the opposite of love; God is unified self, and we chose to live as separated selves; we currently seem apart from God; when we return to love we first see our bodies purified in light forms and thereafter awaken in formless unified spirit self.
Make of this little write up what you like; what you make of it does not state the truth of it but shows your evolution in time, space, and matter; whatever any of us says about God reflects whether we are loving and forgiving persons or not; unloving persons live in dense matter, those returning to love occasionally see themselves in light forms and those who have awakened to love, returned to union, God are formless because God and his heaven are formless.
In ego we are in dense bodies; in Christ we are in light bodies; in God we are formless unified spirit selves.
In ego we are insane because we believe in the impossible, that we can separate from God; in Christ we are beginning to regain some sanity because we are beginning to accept that there is no alternative to union with God and all his creation; in heaven we are sane for now we know that we are formless parts of one nameless, formless whole self that folks on earth, the dream of separation, call God.
