When Jesus was Handed over to Pilot, He Pilot, Let the People Choose! As was there Custom For one Prisoner to Be released & as the story is told, the People opted for The Convicted Murderer to Be released.
As you should Know, that all Biblical Parables/stories Have more to offer than Just the Literal View, This is the great Failing of Mental Attitudes and Dogma
For example, Maybe This was Jesus Telling a story of how he was a threat to the establishment & as Most true Prophets of there day have been. They always go against the grain No Doubt because the People have wandered far from God, & The Balance needs to be Checked or another step towards Full Understanding is given. So one day we all May be Enlightened and Live in Understanding of One Another, instead of Fear, Suspicion, Envy, Hatred.
So here is a Parable that has many deep Meanings Firstly – it says that A truly holy & wise Person will be Killed when Standing up to the Corruption of the Day! that they are a threat to the Establishment & Also a threat to His own peoples Established Beliefs and Traditions
Did he Not call the Priests of the Time “A Brood of Vipers” So, he has Many Enemies, Foreign & Domestic! The Rabbis & The Romans. is there Not an Account of him Escaping from an Angry Crowd? There is a saying that the Truth Hurts. I once asked a wise man what would he Rather Endure? Physical Pain? or, Mental Pain.? Without a hesitation he Said, Physical Pain “As that can go away” “Mental Pain stays!”
Secondly- Jesus says “That there is no Greater Honor, “Than Laying Down your Life For your Brothers & Sisters?” This does Not Mean that “HE” would Be suicidal. What it Means is that- He is now on A different Path to the one He was formerly on. The Path of EGO & Selfishness is Now Dead to Him, He is now on the path of New Life. He has Given up his old life, to Help People understand The New Life, The New way Free from suffering. To Introduce The Kingdom Of Heaven. He Has BECOME The Teacher, The AWAKENED ONE!. As all He see’s around him are People asleep, Dead to the Truth, & The Peaceful Natural, Way Of Life. Humanity is Made For Love Not the Fleeting Anger of War!
As Jesus Taught He said “People Do not realize! that Blind they come into this World” ‘And Blind They Seek to Leave It!”
So, how did He find The This WAY?
Well he Probably found the way Through all His Mistakes & Suffering, & Seeing the Suffering of others, & through this Suffering He UNLOCKED THE TRUTH of Love & Compassion & found (was given) the Keys To Heaven. Does it not State In the Bible That, Jesus was Long Suffering In bearing The pain of others. Also it say’s That, he threw Many Prayers and Petitions To the Lord Until The time That the Lord God Came to him And answered His Many Petitions and Cries!
Through his Understanding of Pain, suffering The Division of man, he then Became one! one Mind, one Body, One Soul. And became The word of Wisdom and was taught The ways By the Earth. The Mother spirit, The Breath of God
He Learned to Cast Down all His Fears/insecurities.
So It Ultimately it does not Matter what school of thought you come from, or Adhere too. As there is something we all Tend to Forget Sometimes, while we Lambast others, & there Beliefs. Is that the Great Prophets or Wise Men of our Quasi Modern Times, all Share Something in Common With US .. in fact many things… And that is …….That Every time you Look AT the Stars, know That, These Beings of Love & Wisdom Have also Gazed upon them!…. every time you walk Bare Foot Upon Green, Green Grass!.. Every-time You close you eyes & Feel the Sun upon your face, know that they Also did this…. Probably much more than we do? hence our Problems!
Does it MATTER How you Pray or when you Fast, or if someone does it Different to you!
It is A lovely Day here in Scotland …. but i know just a few houses away lies Misery! & And next door, or a few miles from there, From 1mile to 100 miles and so forth, etc, etc! Remember, that Under the mask we wear, we are all Sad, or have known Sadness and pain some much more than Others! Poverty of the Human Condition is Rampant! hence the Drugs, Alcohol, bullying, superiority Complex, insecurities, Looking for Love But making do with second Best 8/10, Greed, and lots more Bullshit ta Boot!…
Who are we if we do not Make the world Better? for the Generations to Come ..
For we ARE THE GENERATION…. The Dawn of AQUARIUS…….. WHAT EVER YOUR BELIEFS WE ARE THE DAWN OF CHANGE!
Smile! Look at A Cloud floating By!! Walk on the Grass barefoot!..Oops!!! Watch out for the Dog shit..
