That Which Has Always Been Called God comes packed in our DNA, is written into our genetic code. When Jesus said, "The Father and I are One," he was speaking for all of us. The Johannine Prayer (That they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me), Jesus' statement, "The Kingdom of God is within you," And, "In as much as you have done it, or failed to do it, to/for one of the least of my brothers and sisters, you have done it to/for me," All point to the classical definition of "sacrament," "An outward, visible sign, of an inward, visible grace," whereby we become one with that which is God. I would say, "By which we recognize and remember that we are one with that which is God." We ARE that which we seek! All it takes is turning the light around to know that it is so, and has always been so. This is the knowledge-- the Gnosis--that orthodoxy was intent on stamping out because it does away with any need for the church, any church, and destroys the foundation of power Irenaeus of Lyons and his cronies were creating for themselves in the 2nd and 3rd centuries CE. Gnosticism is no heresy. Orthodoxy is the heresy, killing, as it did, its enemy rather than loving them as Jesus commanded. And now, it waits for us to set the record straight. That Which Has Always Been Called God and we are one. And it is on us to make real what is real in the way we live, and move, and have our being. Beginning here/now.
