Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. John 14:8-12.
In his last days, you could feel the frustration of the Mystical Jesus as he tried to teach his disciples the location of God as dwelling within you. “The Father that dwells in me, he does the works.”
Jesus showed where the Father is. Not out there in the sky. That should be clear enough. But that would be strong for the spiritual illiterate when Jesus would say, “I am in the Father, and the Father is in me.” That is the mystery of every soul. You live, move and have your being in God (Acts 17:28) and God at the same time, lives in you.
In Luke 17:21, he had taught them, “The Kingdom of God is within You”. The Father and His Kingdom is within each one of us. Awakened to the Power Presence of the indwelling Father, Jesus glorified God with his life.
God is hidden within and we go looking for it outside like the musk deer that has the scent on him but keep looking for it around.
The first and greatest acknowledgement we can make is that All We Are Looking For Is Within Us – God is within. This is the giant step to spiritual growth.
This awareness will make everyone focus on awakening “The Father or Mother Within.” You will no more go out seeking; you will look within and evoke the highest desires into expression. Here is one:
Love, Supreme Love of the Universe; Love that is God; God that is Love; break forth in me like a mighty volcano blessing all you touch today with health, wealth and wisdom. Amen.
