Until we understand how we’ve confused ourself and why, self acceptance is a very difficult task. We have purposely made our life difficult as our spiritual challenge. Once we really understand what we did and why, it becomes very clear what we need to do to make the changes we want to. This process can be done in an easy and non-threatening way by working with our cellular memories using biofeedback. We can answer our own questions and find our own solutions. We just need a little professional assistance. There is nothing wrong with any of us. We came here to enjoy our life and manifest our dreams. We just got lost in negative emotional identification.
Gnostic sources often do depict Jesus answering questions, taking the role of teacher, revealer, and spiritual master. But here, too, the gnostic model stands close to the psychotherapeutic one. Both acknowledge the need for guidance, but only as a provisional measure. The purpose of accepting authority is to learn to outgrow it. When one becomes mature, one no longer needs any external authority. The one who formerly took the place of a disciple comes to recognize himself as Jesus’ “twin brother.” Who, then, is Jesus the teacher? Thomas the Contender identifies him simply as “the knowledge of the truth.” According to the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus refused to validate the experience that the disciples must discover for themselves:
They said to him, “Tell us who you are so that we may believe in you.” He said to them, “You read the face of the sky and of the earth, but you have not recognized the one who is before you, and you do not know how to read this moment.”
