“Demons” are nothing but low vibrational mental strongholds reduced to the ego state. The moment has finally come to rise above these thoughts that operate on a low conscious level, which prevents us from experiencing the abundant life as promised by Jesus.
I remember Joshua Tongol also shared in his latest message “Does sin separate you from God?” that the dualistic mindset held in mainstream or evangelical christianity was influenced by greek mythology, which results in the mistaken belief that humans are separate from God. I agree with Jath’s understanding of the gospel that through our co-resurrection with Christ, we realise we are all one with God, and one with one another. At the cross, the ruler of this world was judged, that is, the ego that perpetuated the illusion of separation. Jesus disarmed the principalities and powers, having nailed the law to the cross, so that the demons, or the low vibrational thought patterns or strongholds, could not condemn us based on our performance. We reinforce our victory over shame and condemnation by bringing every thought to captivity to the obedience of Christ, who is our true divine identity. Our heart is established by grace when we feed on the tree of life – high vibrational thoughts that affirm our oneness with God and our true identity as beloved and innocent children of Divine Love.
Yes, we shall not feed from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, like what Jath’s post says. May we continue to pay no attention to those who condemn others since we know they have not yet fed on the tree of life and accept their true identity. We shall not eat their poison; rather let us continue to eat king’s and queen’s food – our daily bread of love and light that builds up our spirit, that reminds us we are made in God’s glorious image.
The truth always sets us free – free from the sense of being judged by the ego which is only an illusion. I am reminded that Buddha attained enlightenment while meditating under the Bodhi tree when he realised that the ego was an illusion. As Thich Nhat Hanh also said, we are here to awaken from the illusion of separateness. The still, small voice in our heart says we are one with God, we are beloved, and we are the I Am.
