Embodying Good

Christ Jesus' words are of precious import to every earnest student of practical Christianity. He addressed himself to many different states of human consciousness with a loving understanding that covered the whole world's needs. To those still struggling under the full weight of belief in a selfhood apart from God he tenderly said: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." This loving invitation was like a helping hand reaching down in compassion to the burdened human sense in its depths of belief in personal ability or disability. It was as if he had said, Your true selfhood, God's image, has no burden.

Jesus' consciousness of his at-one-ment with God found expression in his words, "I and my Father are one." He was identifying himself with God, infinite intelligence or Mind, acknowledging the fact that his being and activity were one with the Divine Being that is Life, God; that he worked as his Father worked, from the standpoint of Mind. As the Wayshower to all mankind, he made clear the path that all must follow to the full realization of man's divine sonship with God. Mortal sense did not then, and does not now, grasp the import of his recognition of true identity. Jesus' ability to overcome hate with love and death with life was proved in his ascension above a personal sense of himself and revealed his true identity as God's divine expression.
