Wow! So much this morning. There is no chastisement or judgment in Him. It’s just not there. He wants our souls to “whisper to each other”.
This is huge. What does it mean to “whisper to each other’s souls”. First, you must be close. There can be no separation. Whispering is intimate. It is sweet. Whispering implies trust. It also implies exclusivity, but that’s not part of it. Whispering is peaceful. It is almost child-like and innocent. Whispering, if you think about it, is quite beautiful.
Today, our souls, mine and Jesus’, whispered to each other.
I whisper, soul to soul, with my wife. There are some in my life with whom I can whisper, soul to soul, but very few. Not family, and I can count the friends on one, maybe two hands – and even then, not all the time – only in special moments.
But today, I whispered souls with Jesus, and it was…no – it IS…sweet.
We have created an image of Jesus – the Christed Jesus – of Him being superior – the only begotten son. He wrought the atonement, he was crucified, and resurrected, and now He “reigns”. He will be our judge. He will execute the destruction, and thereby the salvation, of the world.
This is not Him. The crucifixion has become a wedge between us and Him. We can’t let that be. It is a twisted, warped outcome that is not what was intended. Oneness was His intent – that we may become one – all of us, including Him, with each other. Yet, we allow our image of Him to separate us. Some are good, some are bad, but none are good enough – not as good as Him.
This is not Him. He “atoned” for our sins in the Garden? The only “sin” is not loving each other. Oh, it pained Him, indeed, but not the way we think.
I pondered over the wounds in His hands, seeking to understand. He whispered to my soul, and I to His.
He longs to whisper to our souls. Each one, one on one. And once we have learned to whisper soul to soul with Him, perhaps we can learn to whisper soul to soul with each other. Without fear. Without guilt. Without judgment. Without control. And with each great, glorious, beautiful, unifying whisper, he brings about the true atonement. Today. Ongoing. Inviting. Independent of time or space or form.
This IS Him. And I learned today that in knowing Him – in whispering souls with Him – I can know myself.
As He said, and I have already recorded, “I AM the purity that you seek.”
“…That YOU seek, He said!” I seek Him! He IS the purity that I seek – the very same PURITY that I SEEK! And today, I got a glimpse of that purity…of Him…of myself…even of each of you…, when I whispered to His soul, and He whispered to mine.
Perhaps if we can learn to whisper to each other’s souls…
