24 And atruth is bknowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;

 25 And whatsoever is amore or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a bliar from the beginning.

 26 The Spirit of atruth is of God. I am the Spirit of truth, and John bore record of me, saying: He breceived a fulness of truth, yea, even of all truth;

 27 And no man receiveth a afulness unless he keepeth his commandments.

 28 He that akeepeth his commandments receiveth btruth andclight, until he is glorified in truth and dknoweth all things.

What does it mean to receive a fullness of truth? Truth is a knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come. So, receiving a fullness of truth is receiving a fullness of knowledge, all knowledge of the past, present and future. Possessing all knowledge is possessing all light….to be filled with ALL light….. DC 88 – Christ the light of the sun, the light of the stars, the light through and in all things….But to be capable of receiving all this knowledge – which is light – you must be subject to the commandments of God. This submitting allows the heart to open the mind to pierce and deceptions to fall away.

What is an open/soft heart? Teachable, easily intreated…never threatened (closed), never defensive (closed and grasping to maintain a stance)…nothing to lose by responding with love and humility, nothing to protect. You are not yours, you are God’s….and all is full of gratitude and reverence and a sincere desire to serve….

What is serving really? the purest form of transcendence?

How? Keeping the commandments of God is no more than understanding and utilizing the power of God within us, which is to say, placing our potential power and will in line with the laws of the universe. To see the universe as it truly is you have to know it. To see God as He really is you have to do everything in your power to become Him. Which requires letting go of all fears.

True knowing is becoming. There is no other way. That is why Satan will never truly BE. He knows nothing.  That is why being glorified is the result of receiving truth and light…truth and light turn us into gods. Deception is darkness…so if our faith is dim, if we falter, if we lack knowledge Satan has power to move us, to darken our view. To truly turn to God we must forsake all that he would forsake, and love all that he would love, and give all that he would give. Performance – we have to be the shaman…
