Response to Possibilities
I'd like to disagree with the illustration that claims, 'Jesus is the only name that can save'
There is no historical record of any such person, although that is of little or no relevance.
The reputation of the Jesus as a kind, benign, man-of-peace figure, belies the type of follower that has developed.
The blood-thirsty Princes of 'his' church demonstrate no such qualities.
The study of the seeking of origins is relegated and confined to intellectual attributes of the seekers and generally will produce some set of prayers, devotions, ritual as being the key to opening the Spiritual door being sought.
They will be as ineffective as all the others.
The door stands unrecognised, and so the key cannot be found.
They all seem to miss the point of understanding the intrinsic and underlying Spiritual Nature of Life. All roads do lead to there, but the avid pilgrim is too busily engaged in killing, chanting, ritualising,waving ever more taller and colourful banners, condemning and generally assuming moral and spiritual superiority to notice the man-of-peace standing tearfully and silently by.
Metaphorically, of course.
We reap as was sown.
We 'save' ourselves.
As we cannot die all that we can 'save' is already 'saved' - we can only polish the Divine aspect, should we choose. But first, we require to 'see', to 'realise' what is real and what is temporary.
