Continuing His fiery sermon
on the Mount of Attainment,
Jesus the Prophet enters into yet another
Spark of Divine Creativity.
Not seeking to be duplicitous in your worship
of the Holy Presence like those who unsuccessfully
try to be priests of the Most High
without truly being internally prepared for such an exalted position,
approach the Holy Presence that is within you in a Spirit of Humility.
Praying to the Savior that is Love
as if in a secret communion with your Everlasting Father,
make no show of mystical influence
nor of being in possession of something that is
wholly unique to your Collective Soul.
Not wanting to fast or refrain from indulging
in material desires for the sake of trying
to impress others with a certain level
of tolerance to the world in which we live,
fast for your own Collective Purification
from the various diseases of a proud mind.
When with the Holy Presence,
be at one with the secretive or inner nature
of the Christ, for the Christ is all that is left
after the externality of the world disappears.
Leading His dedicated followers into prayer,
Jesus the Prophet commences to invoke
the Holy Presence of the Everlasting Father.
To that Spirit which is One in Heaven and in Earth,
hallowed be Thy Saving Grace.
When You are with Us, the Righteousness
that is Heaven becomes the Excellence of the Spirit
that is Deeply Embodied in the Earthen Bodies of Men and Women.
Give Us only Your Holy Presence,
for that Triumph over Matter is the Daily Bread
of Our Collective Soul.
Forgive Us of Our misgivings towards You,
for You are the recipient of the good and bad alike
as We are the debtors of Our own strengths and weaknesses.
Lead Us into the Purity of Love's Embrace
and Lead Us out of the valley of shadows.
Your Holy Presence is the Power
and the Glory of the Resurrected Christ.
Compassionately concerned about the welfare of Humanity,
Forgiveness is the key to ending the cycle of pessimism
and slothfulness that is characteristic of a proud mind.
Caring for others as your Collective Soul,
your Everlasting Father will Exalt you
with the Power of a Soft Heart.
Inquisitive over whether or not to
lay a strong foundation of wealth
in this world, one of His dedicated followers
decides to pose a question to the Righteous Son of God.
Of what use are the trappings of external accomplishments
to the Seeker on the Path?
Jesus the Prophet, in response, laid down
the following maxims of God-Realization.
What is of this Earth shall stay on this Earth
indefinitely, whereas what is of the Kingdom of God
is Eternal from the Moment of Its Conception.
Those who are fool-hearty chase after the fools gold
of social status and other egotistical rewards.
But I say unto you, when the influence of time
makes holes out of your accomplishments
and the robbers of your pride take away all that
you have earned through being worldly-minded,
My Holy Grail is as if It never Existed.
Focusing all of your efforts on something
other than Me and the Everlasting Father,
re-start from where you are currently situated
and be the Righteous Son of God that you are
meant to be by making your Eye Single and your Body Full of Light.
Seek First the Kingdom of God
and all that is invested in Me
will be invested in you now and forevermore.
