"If you want money for minds that hate, all I can tell you brother is you have to wait," sings John Lennon in "Revolution," a song written by him and Paul McCartney.

Perhaps true service is to the world, and not any theoretical, theological, or philosophical system.

Do you ever truly wonder about that man up there on the pulpit? Who gave him the authority to stand there and tell you what is right and wrong; or what will get you into heaven or hell?

"But, he's the authority on God!" you chime in.

So, he authors (creates) God?

God in Hebrew is Yahweh, or I AM and I AM is who I am. I AM I AM. I have to be I AM otherwise I wouldn't be sitting here writing an article for I AM to read. The Lord speaks and writes this and the Lord listens to and reads this.

Who has the right to write your life? Does your I AM tell you these words are foolish, or does (S)He tell you they are wise? Or, is your I AM purely silent on the matter and just sits back and enjoys the drama?

Ultimately, what I am asking is: "Who has the right to author you in your Nature? Who is truly expressed by your Nature? The CEO's, teachers and Preachers, or Gurus who are self-proclaimed authorities? Or is it YOU who is the authority in your I AM ness."

Here I would take your I AMness and say, "don't confuse who you are by your conditioning. Rather, your I AMness is totally naked in that (S)HE wears no clothing underneath the story you are living. The story you live is your clothing. You and I AM taking part in a Play. I AM is the author and partaker of the Story, but ultimately is transcendent of it.

Where has our focus been? On I AM? No, not really. More on EGO as it has developed through our enculturation and indoctrination; more on our separate distinction and classification than on our participation in BEING! After all, throughout the world, we have allowed our lives to be authored by external authorities. Our focus has been on the "Man Behind the Curtain." But the true authority, I AM, is within us, the indwelling Holy Spirit!

Wait, does this mean we can change the direction of the Play?

So, Dorothy, do you remember in your Soul-Story that the Man Behind the Curtain is a farce? He just wants to get back to Kansas (Heaven) just like the rest of us.

In the "Gospel of Thomas," Jesus Christ says, "If you bring forth that which is within you; then that which is within you will save you. If you DO NOT bring forth that which is within you, then that which is within you will kill you."

Geeze, no wonder Thomas was not chosen to be a part of the Christian Bible's New Testament. Those staged behind the pulpit preachers and priests do not want you to realize that which is within you. How could they make money if you realized your Self? Alienation from Nature, from the Self, is simply not profitable.

Is the death we need to suffer a surrendering of the externalized authorities of church, state and corporation? Is our rebirth a reclaiming of our Self? Our God/dess? Our Nature.

There are teachers, or educators; who, like Christ, are here to help us unfold our potential, our true Nature. One such teacher is Peruvian Shaman don Oscar Miro-Quesada.
