Self-knowledge cannot be attained without meeting our Self through others . . . >>

He who sees himself in all beings,
And all beings in him,
attains the highest Brahman
not by any other means.

Kaivalya Upanishad

We cannot know ourselves and become mature human – conscious individuals – without experiencing and recognizing the (our) Self in other people. Other people can bring the worst and the best out of us and make us improve ourselves through self-insight and -discipline. The process of individuation and spiritual development always include love for the good, kindness and an eye for the beauty in others-their general humaneness. This love for the human always includes care and worry for the well-being of one’s fellow man.

Matthew 25 : 35 -36 , relates to giving the spiritual Christ (the seed of the messianic spirit within) , the Homo Altus -the greater potential human within us – a realization and body in life, by the way deep psychic engagement with others.

”For I was hungry and you gave me to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me to drink .” — I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me

No spiritual light–revealing the truth of human nature and life can be attained without having brought out the best of human nature into life.

It is the Spirit of love and life — the Feminine partner of the creative Divine –the Sophia – the Shekhina, that will unify the old testament and the new testament and make these complementaries. And this will bring the written general moral laws of Mozes alongside the personally realized innate (messianic) spirit of righteousness.  

Galatians 2:21 I do not set aside the grace of God. For if righteousness comes through the law, Christ died for nothing

In the new testament the path to a higher state of humanness–through the realization of the messianic Spirit, by love and truth, is exampled and personified by the earthly man Jesus. In the male figure of Jesus Christ, earthly biological man and Christ as the spirit of love and truth, the two wings of the whole making (Holy) Spirit have come together.

The gift of spiritual enlightenment follows an act of grace in response to the personal effort–to allow the Spirit of love and truth to grow in and to be transformed by it.

In words of Krishna:

”I moksha (enlighten with the truth of life) you, because you showed love , for I am love.”

With these words a degree of mutual assimilation and integration is confirmed. A degree of incarnation of the divine whole-making spirit in biological man

— love for love’s sake only – this pure spirit will force to truth and light —

Vivekananda — Atman is in all, hence there are no casts
