Jesus was a special, special messenger of god. He came to teach love and acceptance. ALL of his teaching reflect this. The human interpretations of his teachings may tell a different story, based on their filters, but that does not take away from the true message Jesus came to give us.
Love one another, including yourself.
<Love one another as I have loved you.>
<Forgive one another, as I have forgiven you.>
Rising above it all in love. Jesus was so respectful of others, in love. In true love.
When he died, the bible claims that he rose from the dead, and took away all of our sins.
So, now, break that down. Let's keep it simple.
What is sin? Is it what your ego decides is wrong? Is it the emotional residue of unlearned lessons? Is it what your <shadow> is trying to tell you you have inside of you?
In order to see what Jesus represents, we must understand the core of his message, and what it really means, in spiritual terms.
If you believe we have sin inside of us, then you are on the wrong page......
SIN is how people articulate the shadow within.
As Carl Jung discusses in his writings, the shadow side reflects the darkness within. Our dark polarity. It is important to understand that we ALL have this dark side inside of us, in order to remain anchored to the earth. We cannot be here with the dark side.
This dark side, this shadow, this side has many names.....evil, shadow, darkness, badness, wrongdoing, etc....one of the names we use is SIN.
Allow me to illustrate just how many translations and interpretations have been created for the word, SIN,
The following link shows nine different meanings in Hebrew, with reference to sin and its various meanings in the bible, based on how it was written and the word used.........9 different words....not to mention the greek words, too!!
When thinking about sin, it is very important that we realize that sin, just like the word LOVE, meant so many different things and we have blanketed them all with just one word.
Here, however is my favourite translation of the word. I love this one because I find that all sin is missing the mark, not learning your lesson, making a mistake because you fed the shadow instead of your soul.
*****The original Hebrew word for sin is very beautiful. By translating it as “sin,” Christians have missed the very message of Jesus. The original Hebrew word for sin is so totally different from your idea of sin that it will be a surprise to you.
The root word means forgetfulness;
it has nothing to do with what you are doing.
The whole thing is whether you are doing it with conscious being or out of unconsciousness.
Are you doing it with a self-remembering or have you completely forgotten yourself?
Any action of unconsciousness is sin. The action may look virtuous, but it cannot be. You may create a beautiful façade, a character, a certain virtuousness; you may speak the truth, you may avoid lies; you may try to be moral, and so on and so forth.
But if all this is coming from unconsciousness, it is all sin.

The reason I love this one, is because it follows the teachings of ALL of the other masters that cmd to earth to teach us about love. It does not just follow the christian interpretation of Jesus' teachings, it synchronizes with the teachings of all that came here to speak loudly and boldly about love. When we forget what we are doing here, we screw up. Wendy Kennedy, a wonderful channel
Sin is doing something unconsciously. It is reacting through the shadow side, without realizing what you are doing.....rather than through the soul. When we tok about being stuck, we are caught in the unconscious. We are not seeing it through open eyes. We are doing everything linked to our being stuck, in the unconscious. IT IS NOT BAD, it is just not conscious. We ALL DO IT...no one is above doing it. It happens to even the most conscious of us. Recognising it is seeing it through new eyes, without sin (unconsciousness) And in doing so, you have RISEN above what was dead, not living, not from the soul.
If we could all do everything through the soul, we would have nothing left to experience, and would no longer feel the benefit of being here, learning our lessons through emotion.
You know I truly believe we are here to FEEL our way through life. The more feeling, the better the understanding, if we do it CONSCIOUSLY. To be unconscious makes everything we do redundant. It is a waste of our time here. I hope and pray that everyone will eventually see their reason to be here, but some may not. That is their path. However, when we are conscious of what we are doing, even when we screw up, we are inviting our soul into the mix, to help us process the emotions and the layers of understanding that are possible through the feelings we face, <from the shadow side>
When Jesus <rose from the dead> he rose up from the dead inside. His shadow. Yes, I believe his rising was totally metaphorical, as I have seen him with children, a wife, loved ones around him, etc. He did not die on a cross. the christians wrote that story to have monopoly over his teachings. He rose above himself, despite himself. CAn't you see? He saw his sin, and could still love himself and those who hurt him. He saw his shadow and the shadow of others, and still and love. He accepted the shadow and allowed it into his heart, in love. He was all about love. Loving everyone and everything is an act of true acceptance.
The key to this <game> is balance. By loving yourself, shadow/sin/wrongdoings and all, you are accepting yourself, fully. To see you made a mistake, but to be conscious about how it happened, where it came from, and then allowing yourself permission to be human, to learn the lesson, to feel the emotions, good and bad, that is such a gift!!! To do that, you are rising above the sin. By Jesus dying on the cross and <taking away our sin> He was trying to give us a very powerful message. We are not bad! Sin is not bad! We are unconscious.
Rise above it, and allow the word sin to be left for dead. See it for what it is, and let it into your heart. Accepting is loving. A part of us must die in order to be conscious. Our delusion dies. Nothing more. Allow it to die, and rise able it, as Jesus did. As he taught you. Hold hands with your shadow and your soul, and begin to live your life with your eyes wide open. WAKE UP and rise above it all. xoxo
