Esa had finished these

original being. So man is no longer in the image of
God after this separation of

are manifested in a person, he will be an androgynous person. Two
people with these qualities also will complement each other. Such a
union brings perfection of
energy between them.
"And said, For this cause shall a man leave
father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain
shall be one flesh?" (Matthew 19:5)
<5>That is why, "For this cause," when
soulmates find each other, they shall cleave to one another, "and
they twain shall be one flesh." They should become one and help each
other to reach higher consciousness and manifest
God's qualities through themselves.
"Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore
God hath joined together,
let not man put asunder." (Matthew 19:6)
<6>This is the
Godly way of marriage,
"What therefore God hath
joined together." There will be no divorce in such a marriage.
Otherwise, because of their
false egos, the partners will not get along together, "let not
man put asunder." <7>If they truly follow
God's plan for marriage,
they should not separate.
"They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of
divorcement, and to put her away?"
"He saith unto them, Moses because of the
hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but
from the beginning it was not so." (Matthew 19:7-8)
<8>Moses received this Law because the
minds were so crude
"because of the hardness of your hearts" that they could not
recognize their true partners. <9>Also because of their lower
natures, they desired the flesh of other women. So Moses relaxed the
Law because the human was in a low level of consciousness. But truly
fleshly desires and mental attractions are temporary and
controllable. <10>The only true marriage between two people
is the marriage of their spirits together so that they might become
"And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his
wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth
commit adultery." (Matthew 19:9)
<11>First find your true partner and marry
her or him. But even if two beings are not each others' partners,
with becoming one with
God they will become one
with each other and live together and be One. So "Whosoever shall
put away his wife," with no great cause, "except it be for
fornication" and marries another, creates a great
sin "adultery" by doing so.
<12>Beside spiritual reasons for marriage, the family is a
block of society and each of them counts in the strength or weakness
of the society. <13>A society with a weak family structure
will be easily destroyed.
<14>Therefore if a man and woman break their
relationship for selfish reasons and this becomes a norm in a
society, then that society will become corrupt and no matter how
powerful it looks, it is weak and vulnerable. <15>In the new
era to come it is the strength of the Communities of Light
which will create strength in the society!
"His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his
wife, it is not good to marry."
"But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this
saying, save they to whom it is given."
"For there are some eunuchs, which were so born
from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were
made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made
themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of
heaven's sake. He that
is able to receive it, let him receive it." (Matthew 19:10-12)
<16>As it was said, each being has two parts
female) which when
merged together become one or in the image of
God. When they are together ()
a person who is born in this state (androgynous) does not feel any
need for a partner to be complete. Such people are those who, "which
were so born from their mother's womb," or their partner has not
been born in the flesh, so they cannot find it on earth.
<17>Another type of people who can stay
unmarried are those who have been made impotent, especially in the
past, by man, "and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs
of men." They usually were used in king's or rich people's harems.
<18>The third kind which does not marry are
those who avoid marriage (become renunciates or sannyasins) because
they feel they have a greater mission to fulfill and dedicate their
and His Work, "and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves
eunuchs for the kingdom of
heaven's sake." They
sacrifice all for
their ideology and
<19>But those who have found their partners
and are inclined toward reunion and married life also are greatly
blessed. <20>With a marriage centered on
God's Laws, they become one and create a great block for
society, a beautiful environment to raise children, and can manifest
God's beauty and
(regeneration) through themselves. They can help each other and
others to reach higher consciousness. So they can reach
Pure Consciousness even in the middle of the family.
"Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should
put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them."
said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me:
for of such is the kingdom of

thence." (Matthew 19:13-15)

"And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good
thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?"
"And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good?
there is none good but one, that is,
God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments."
<22>A person came and tried to inflate his
ego by calling him, "Good
Esa detested this and
reminded him that no man deserves to be called good and praised but
who is the only one worthy of praise. Then he told the man that he
should follow the commandments strictly if he wants to enter into
Consciousness, "into life." Also
God Is, "that is,
"He saith unto him, Which?
said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou
shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,"
"Honour thou father and thy mother: and, Thou
shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." (Matthew 19:18-19)
which Commandments he should follow.
Esa repeated the ten commandments and told him to follow them.
<24>This completely showed that
Esa wanted his followers to follow these commandments and his
coming did not destroy them.
"The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my
youth up: what lack I yet?"
said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast,
and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in
heaven: and come and follow me." (Matthew 19:20-21)
<25>The man said he had followed the
Commandments and wanted to know what to do next.
Esa said, "If it is true, then you are worthy to follow me. So
go and sell all that you have and give it to the poor. Then come
"But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful:
for he had great possessions."
Esa unto his disciples,
Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the
"And again I say unto you, It is easier for a
camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to
enter into the kingdom of
God." (Matthew 19:22-24)
<26>Rich people become attached to their
possessions. It becomes very hard for them to give them up for
higher things. It is almost impossible for them to overcome their
false egos which make them feel important because of their
riches. <27>That is exactly what the
false ego is, it is when a person sees his importance because
of the things he possesses in the external world, not on his own
<28>Only when this
false ego has been
destroyed and the true ego (actualized ego) is replaced, can man
appreciate what he is and enjoy life and the creation. Then he can
enter the Kingdom Of
false ego usually is
greater as the person becomes richer in material possessions. That
is why it is so hard for the rich to enter the Kingdom Of
Heaven. You cannot have two masters,
God and mammon (Matthew 6:24).
"When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying,
Who then can be saved?"
beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but
all things are possible." (Matthew 19:25-26)
<30>With the work of man alone to reach
Consciousness, it is impossible, "With men this is impossible."
But with His
Grace, it is possible.
"Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken
all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?"
said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed
me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne
of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the
twelve tribes of Israel."
"And every one that hath forsaken houses, or
brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or
lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall
inherit everlasting life." (Matthew 19:27-29)
<31>His disciples would be with him whenever
he comes back to earth and eventually will reach
Consciousness, "inherit everlasting life."
"But many that are first shall be last; and the
last shall be first." (Matthew 19:30)
<32>Those who create
false egos, exalt
themselves, and think they are first will be last. Those who humble
themselves and may think they are last will be first.
