Yeah, good stuff. I'm diggin' it.
One thing I've been finding lately is that there's actually quite a bit of validity to a lot of what Christianity has to say.
Like the idea of us being separate from God and then dying and being reunited with God.
Yeah we've adopted the ego and so now we experience separation from God, even though it doesn't actually exist. Yes the self does die so that we realize our true nature as the Self. Yet this death is only the death of a superficial identity. I guess we could say the same is true for bodily death at the end of an incarnation.
In time, it looks like we connect to God in the future and then are with him forever and ever.
Yet from timelessness, we recognize that awakening/salvation does open up the recognition that God and I are one, for all eternity. Not as a long time, but as no time.
Yes we do need to purge the evil, aka. surrender away the ego's stuff in favor of God/Truth/Love, but the self-incriminating stuff isn't necessarily the way to go about it. That's a product of the blind leading the blind, and more ego trying to get rid of itself, but never actually doing it.
The gift is not that we will be granted eternal life, but that we have eternal life.
It's not that we will one day be loved for who we are and forgiven of all our sins, but that we already are loved for who we are and are forgiven now for all that we have done, for we have done nothing wrong anyways. We're just being ourselves to the best that we can.
There's almost an innocence to the human ego, like a baby trying to walk, but not quite getting it right. Just faulty dualistic programming out of alignment with Truth. Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.
I'm just rambling now and I'm tired, but there does actually seem to be quite a bit of truth to Christianity's teachings which, when we start seeing beyond the whole dualistic stuff, it seems like we're probably coming closer to what Jesus was originally saying back in the day.
Kinda like revealing the nuggets of gold within the mud.
