|The Cross & The Blood...The Passion Of The Christ?
Back to Spiritual Writings
The crucifixion to me begins with Jesus laying down who he truly is and choosing to believe the lie
that we are separate from God. This was the cup he drank from in the garden of his mind - hence, he
took upon himself the sin of the world or rather the false beliefs that the world believes...and that is
that God is outside of us and far away. Hence, on the cross he proclaimed, "Father, why have you
The crown of thorns represents the mind pierced and in agony from these false beliefs - the
condition of the fallen mindset. And we see Jesus crucified, which is a picture of what we have done
in our minds concerning ourselves. We (through the goggles of religion) have killed the idea that we
are sons (and daughters) of God. Yet, this truth cannot be destroyed or killed permanently, because
who you really are is spirit (unchangeable) and that was demonstrated by Jesus' "resurrection."
Jesus is a portrait of mankind. He represents all of us. The blood of Jesus represents the
"connectedness" of us all. When we look at "bloodlines," blood physically represents a spiritual truth
of us all being connected, and "ONE." When blood is traced, all of us are connected; and so are we
spiritually; therefore, "the life is in the blood." As Jesus' life was taken, his blood was spilled. This
openly showed that when the connectedness with each other and God was removed, the body was
lifeless or "dead." When the blood was poured forth, it is a reminder however, that we are not
separate. "Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins." Without the showing forth
of our connectedness, there is no forgetting of the illusion of separation from God and each other.
And, Christ is the perfect Son of God; who we (mankind) spiritually and truly are as a whole body
corporately. "Christ in you, the hope of glory," as the scriptures say. Christ is the recognition of our
oneness with each other, and with God.
When we hold up the cross as religion does, to me we are identifying with death and separation. Not
a good thing. Why not focus on his resurrection - the truth that we are all one; and we are all spirit
and cannot be "killed?" - LC
