I don't find this as difficult as others might. I also find I don't see the need for a mediator between what I feel I already AM, the One.
Any religion is just one of those neat, if used right, things called a tool. A crutch even. It's like a nicotine substitute, but in the 'end', one's own will power is / should be enough and also costs nothing!
For me, Yvonne sister, it comes down to this. Taking the time for lots of quiet moments, deep sincerity in wanting to re-connect and a whole lot of conscious listening, seeing.
For the human experience, I don't ess any need for an end to the ego, just for a check, to make sure the mind is in control and not the ego. The time for the end of the ego is when the human experience is over. The controlled ego is very valuable!
Ah, Jesus. Well, for me Jesus represented what had gone before him, a Cosmic Reminder, of who we are and what we are meant to be 'doing'. From stuff I have come across and what feels right, Jesus said we can all be what he is, we can all obtain what he had, Christ Consciousness.
New Creation, New Man
I would just say Original Spirit 'lost' in human form. There for all to rediscover in all sorts of ways and with or wthout relgion and indeed with or without mediators or a mediator. Many choices for all the variables. Many Paths.
No questions though, sister. Just real nice to hear your thoughts. Thank you.
