“It is not so much that we are to return to God but rather that we are to express the fullness of the nature of God in our present lives. The Edgar Cayce readings express the same insight in these terms:
“Hence as man applies himself, he becomes conscious of that union of infinite force with the finite force.” (262-52)
He made it clear that He was not making special claims about Himself but rather was quoting from a highly revered Old Testament source, reminding us of our own divinity. The passage says, ‘Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the Most High.’
Jesus’ claim to divinity, a block upon which we seem to enjoy stumbling, was in truth His claim for the divine origin and sonship of all people. Jesus said, ‘If you have seen me you have seen the Father.’ He also said, ‘I am in the Father and the Father is in me and I am in you and you in me.’
That is … Oneness.”
