We are told: “You are sons of the Most High, all of you.” (Not just a few, but all of us). “Nevertheless, you will die like men and fall”.....into infinite states of consciousness, for states are that into which the sons of the Most High fall.
A state is an attitude of mind
a state of experience with a body of beliefs which you live by
You are always expressing a state
you identify yourself with it by saying: “I am poor or I am rich. I am known or I am unknown. I am wanted or I am unwanted.”
I could go on indefinitely, because there are infinite states into which an individual son of the Most High may fall.
When you find yourself in a state or see a seeming other in a state, do not condemn or praise it, for all states exist and no state is greater than another. Every state is an attitude, a state of experience with a body of beliefs that an individual son of the Most High occupies.
“He was made subject unto futility, not willingly, but by reason of the will of him who subjected him in hope.
How to move between states
Knowing you can move into another state, another body of beliefs, you may try to move, but you must persist in staying in the new state until it becomes natural.
How do you get out of a state?
Being fully persuaded that you are now in that state you desire
By mapping out the state desired, and the mindset and beliefs that accompany it
Unless you believe that I AM he, ye shall die in your sins
“The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of heaven is at hand; repent and believe the gospel.”
The word “repent” means “a radical change of attitude.”
Your attitude need not be towards another, but an attitude regarding self.
Don’t condemn yourself for the state into which you have fallen.
If you don’t like it move into another.
