Christian or christian? Last.

“We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the art of living together as brothers.” Martin Luther King

Both, you say? Yes, both! Of course one can be both – a christian and a Christian! Indeed, to me, that’s what rabbi Jesus was espousing. Not an exclusionary, either/or – you’re either for me or against me - experience of living, but an inclusionary, both/and experience, that I’m both for you and against you – for you on somethings, against you on others, but always your brother/sister, always sharing the same spiritual reality and longing to actualize it free of the ego.

We are not asked to be perfect, to have no ‘evil’ thoughts, never to be lazy or fall into blame, judgment and fear. All of that is part of the human experience of being both spirit and ego. But we are asked not to cling to those thoughts, justify them or seek to make them real. We are asked – called upon – that when we find ourselves having ‘evil’ thoughts, blaming, judging and being afraid that we turn them over to the spirit/Kingdom within and not cling to them, analyze and justify them, but release them, give them over and ask spirit to help us see things differently; to get our bloated nothingness out of the way of the divine circuits as Emerson said, and allow the truth of our oneness with all that is to manifest.
