True Purpose of Creation

Yeshua said, “I took my stand in the midst of the world, and in flesh I appeared to them. I found them all drunk, and I did not find any of them thirsty. My soul ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty. But meanwhile they are drunk. When they shake off their wine, then they will change their ways.” ………………. Saying 28, Gospel of Thomas

There are a number of inner revelations in this saying.

The first is the concept of Christ consciousness which is always present in the manifest creation. Christ consciousness and the Father’s consciousness are one and the same. Because of this factor Yeshua declares “I and the Father are one”….John 10:30. This statement is made not at the physical level but at the consciousness level.

This Divine consciousness was made flesh and manifest as the Son. The purpose of the coming of Divine consciousness in the mere human form of Yeshua, is to awaken from the comatose state humanity which has lost the understanding of the purpose of its creation. It is through the knowledge and action of Yeshua there is a clear demonstration that it is within the grasp of all humanity to live as Yeshua lived which is at the level of Father’s consciousness.
St. Paul writing to the Galatians says “I no longer live, but the Messiah lives in me, and the life that I am now living in this body”………Galatians 2:20.

This is the reason the evangelist writes “He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God”…….. John 1:10-12.

There is always an attracting potential instilled into every human being to lure him or her away from mere materialistic existence. But just as we dull our senses to reality by imbibing and inebriating drink of sensory gratification, humanity has lost its thirst for true knowledge of Selfhood. The true knowledge that we are all sons and daughters of the Father just as Yeshua was.

This insight can not be obtained through the mind. The mind being an agent of sensory inputs has the corrupting influence due to the false realities that are perceived and assumed to be the only foundational reality through which one can fulfil one’s life’s purpose. This is the reason that not only the mind has been numbed but the heart which is the agent of intuitive knowing has also been made blind. Only a open mind can permit entry into the intuitive realm human perception.
Humanity is given the access to the mind for a dual reason. The first is to gain knowledge of the Ego and the Self and the second is for the deployment of the intellect or Buddhi to move to the higher planes of existence.

The words “for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty…….” cries out for a new look at the current eschatology. There is purpose of creation with a predetermined state emptiness of the true knowledge but with a clear intention that during one’s life time this state must be modified. Unless we come out of the stupor induced by worldly attachments one can not achieve the true purpose of our creation.

Love to you all
