"He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters." (Matthew 12:30) (1 min 49 sec)


    1. There are only two thought systems: love (represented by God/Spirit) and fear (represented by the ego).

    Our minds are always choosing between these two.
    There is no neutral ground. Jesus is saying here that aligning our mind with God and love is what "gathers" and unites, while aligning with the ego and fear is what "scatters" and divides. At any moment, we are either choosing God/love or ego/fear in our minds.
    Only love is real, as God is love and created only love. Fear and separation are illusions. So to be "with" Jesus is to join with the love of God that he represents. To be "against" him is to side with the ego's illusions of fear, lack, and separation.
    Our only true function is to accept the Atonement - to accept the truth of our eternal Oneness with God and let go of belief in separation. This is how we "gather" with Jesus. Holding onto grievances and identification with the ego is how we "scatter" our mind into illusory fragments.
    This verse points to the choice in every instant to identify either with the part of our mind that knows our unity with God, or with the ego beliefs in separation. There is no in-between, and Jesus calls us to join with him in the truth of our shared Being in God. Aligning with the ego is "against" this truth that Jesus teaches.
    We are being asked to "gather" our mind into oneness by choosing the Holy Spirit over the ego, love over fear, joining over separation. This is the path Jesus invites us to follow.
    I am sorry.
    Please forgive me.
    Thank you.
    I love you.
