ENTER THE STRAIGHT GATE
This video is straight from my heart. It is by far one of my favorite to date, which is ironic considering I thought it would become one of my worst. That alone is a great revelation, sometimes the things that we ignorantly (carnally) believe to be the worst thing for us, when looked at with different eyes (non-judgmental) become one of the greatest things for us and others. Find out the truth of who you are, set your sights on things that are higher, believe all things are possible, and start looking at your life and the life of others as precious. Enter the straight gate and become the shephard of the sheep. Enjoy and feel free to share, Jacob

Okay, I have to share one more thing, promise! As you can probably tell, the brain, reality, the mind; all of those things fascinate me. I have been thinking about the valley of the shadow of death. I was once told it is called the shadow of death because we have not caught up to the true death yet. That really doesn’t make sence to me because true death is to be carnaly minded just as Paul the apostle states and we are all subject to that in the here and now. So, as I have been thinking about the brain, our mind, and our reality, I began to think about this shadow again. So here is the thought that came to me. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. If you are looking north, the west will always being on your left side and the east will always be on your right side, thus, you will be in proper orientation. There are many scriptures that talk about the right side. Even the Garden was planted EASTWARD in Eden. So here is what came to me. If the sun is rising in the east and we were to walk directly towards the west, the light will be shining behind us and produce our shadow directly in our path. I know that eventually, our shadow will be produced behind us if we keep walking west or towards the left side once the sun starts setting, but once it sets, everything is dark. So what I find to be the mose important is the RISING SUN. If we were to walk directly east, the right side when the sun is rising, our shadow will be produced behind us and our path will be lit by the light of the sun (son). We walk east because we are walking towards the right side where the sun rises. The sun never rises on the west (left side), it only sets on that side, so the east (right side) is what is important here. When we walk away from the rising sun, our path is darkened by OUR SHADOW. Our shadow is produced is a projection of our body which is symbolic of our ego because flesh in scripture represents our ego/carnal mind. So when we walk towards the left side or away from the rising sun, we are walking in darkness/ignorance/death. But when we walk towards the right side, or towards the rising sun, we are walking in light/truth/Christ/life. Now, that leads me back to the brain. The brain has two hemispheres just are there are two trees in the garden of eden. I believe the left hemisphere of the brain represents the tree of knowledge of good and evil because this is the side we function the most out of in our waking life. The right side, I believe, represents the tree of life because that is the spiritual side of us. That is why Jesus ASCENDED to the right hand of the Father. He overcame the left side, his ego, and ASCENDED back to the right side from whence he originally DESCENDED. Anyway, I just wanted to share.
I just want to clarify when I say everything in our physical reality is an illusion I stand by that. But that does not mean there are not things in our physical reality that are symbolic of great spiritual truths. That is why Jacob says to pay attention to your life. Just because our reality is opposite of the truth doesn’t mean there are not clues that aid us in discovering the truth. We just have to look through a different set of eyes to see them. It is just like with rest. In order to begin to remember who you really are, you have to rest. When we physically rest, how do we do that? To really rest well, we close our eyes and fall asleep. We no longer work we no longer struggle with others or with ourselves. We simply rest. And we are able to rest because our minds are shut down. It is our minds, through our physical eyes that gobble up all aspects of the illusion of reality we see around ourselves when we are physically awake. So, for those who get what I am saying, when we are physically awake, for the most part, we are spiritually asleep and when we are physically asleep, we are spiritually awake. I do believe however, the more we let go of our ego, the more spiritually awake we become in our physical waking life. But the truth is, when we are physically awake and those physical eyes along with our mind is up and running, we are still very much entrained by this illusion we call life. It won’t be until the mind has been fully crucified that we will be able to fully experience our true reality. I for one believe that time is drawing very near. That is why I believe Paul said I long to be absent from the body because then I will be present with Christ. We experience the illusion of reality through our physical body with the brain being the cpu and the mind being the program. Once the physical body is shut down and the program stops running, we awaken to our true reality. Anyway, just wanted to share. The rabbit hole sure is deep!
To lay down your life for another means to lay down your ego, who you think and believe yourself to be in this world. When we do this, not only are we (Christ) set free, risen, but so are those who we have judged and beaten down with our egos. Once we lay down our life, ego, there is no more judgment. It is not God who judges, it is our ego. It is not God who says do this or that to please me, it is our ego. It is not God who says this world is all jacked up and the people in it are all jacked up and need to be fixed, it is our ego. God pronounced His creation GOOD! It is our ego who says otherwise. And why wouldn’t it? It is after all, the lie just as everything in our so called life is a lie, or opposite of the truth. We believe what is important is outside of us. It is true for us all. Look around you. You see your loved ones, you see your work, your home, your belongings, etc, etc, etc, and you see it all outside of yourself. You are looking at your life through your physical eyes. This is what happened to Adam and Eve in the allegory of the Garden of Eden. When they ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, their eyes were opened. That is when they saw they were naked. That is when their whole reality changed, in that instant! That is when God cast them out of the Garden. But the truth is, they never physically went anywhere, they simply became blind to the truth of their reality and of themselves when they ate of that fruit and their eyes became opened. Stop and think about that for a moment. If their eyes were not opened before they ate of that fruit, how did they see? They saw with their spirit, who they really are. When they ate the fruit, their physical eyes became opened. It is through our physical eyes that we perceive the illusion we mistakenly believe to be our true life. It is through our physical eyes that we perceive everything around us to be outside of ourself. Do you get it? Adam and Eve never went anywhere, they simply became blind and could no longer see. This physical reality we are all shackled to at the moment is an illusion, it is a lie just as I have stated before. It is the polar opposite of the truth. But we all have to experience the lie before we can know the truth. The lie always comes before the truth. And the lie is a complete manisfestation of the ego. The ego is that tree of knowledge of good and evil. From that tree is where all of our laws, rules, rituals, beliefs, religions, standarts, etc, etc, etc, come from. And when we partake of that tree, we till the earth by the sweat of our brow. We work and work and work and work to fix our world and to fix ourselves and others because we believe that is what we are suppose to do. We live by the laws of the land (earth) because we believe that will bring us closer to God when the truth is, the only thing that will bring us closer to God is for us to simply lay down our lives and rest. Quit working! That is what the spiritual 7the day is all about. Let go and let God, rest! We cannot rest while still entrenched in this physical reality, we have to shut it out. We have to step back inside. Close those physical eyes. Shut that mind down that is constantly eating up as much fruit as it can from that tree and go within. That is when we will finally begin to REMEMBER what we forgot. Then we will know how fuitless it is to try to fix and change something that never existed to begin with! Are you seeing the picture I am painting yet? You can’t see it with your physical eyes because they cannot percieve it. The picture is not an illusion, it is the truth and you can only perceive the truth with your spiritual eyes. Thank you Jacob for this video. It is absolutely powerful and has confirmed many things I often meditate on. Reality is indeed changing. The first drops of water are finally reaching the ground (earth). We are experiencing interesting and exciting times indeed.
You know we love it, love it! I describe this video as simply ‘Beautiful’. When I think I have found my favorite video you’ve done, you go and do another one. lol!…
May we see the truth of who we and others truly are.
I got to the “do not judge” part and I had to stop and clarify what “judging” is…We have heard “do not judge” many times by the religous man and woman. I can assure you they have no clue as to the meaning meant for the child of God…It is found in scripture to “let no man judge you” (in eat or drink or holy days and the other shadows of the spiritual man) or “judge not, that ye be not judged”. The warnings are for our benefit in our youth…meaning do not set a standard (right or wrong) that you must keep in order to be seen as favourable…You will also hold others to that same standard and will reject them if they themselves do not or cannot keep it as you have proclaimed it…also you will be rejected by others if you do not keep it as well…The crime is that man is not the judge… Only God alone is to set the standard of right and wrong…One who fears God (gets his wisdom from God) can judge another…but the judgement has been set forth by God and not the man. So his judgement will be true cuz God is true.
