The rather exoteric moral teaching of Jesus of Galilee is of a universal nature: “Be selfless—do not confine yourself to the commitment to separate ‘self’, such that you are always acting to serve yourself.”
Thus, Jesus of Galilee can be understood to have been saying, “As action, be love.” That is to say, do not act on the basis of separate “self” and desire-for-the-results-of-action. Act selflessly, on the basis of love of the Divine, or commitment to the Divine, and to all beings in the Divine.
However, the esoteric (or Spiritual) teaching of Jesus of Galilee is not about love as mere social morality, nor as a Yoga generated for its own sake or for the sake of conventional results. The esoteric teaching of Jesus was about the Spiritual Principle, which is, inevitably, also expressed as love in the inevitable life of action. The esoteric teaching of Jesus was the teaching of the “Kingdom of God” as a Spiritual Mystery, rather than the conventional teaching of the “Kingdom of God” as a “worldly” change—and the esoteric teaching of Jesus was not about the idea of “God” as a kind of powerful warrior (or “War-God”) who is, eventually, to dominate the “world”, but, rather, the “God” of Jesus is the Spirit-Breath That Liberates the heart by means of psycho-physically-enacted Divine Communion.
Those who regarded Jesus of Galilee as a messiah-figure expected him to be a political warrior.However, Jesus of Galilee specifically criticized the exoteric expectations regarding the “Kingdom of God”, and he worked to replace that exoteric understanding of the “Kingdom of God” and the “messiah” and the Divine Itself with an esoteric (or truly Spiritual) understanding. The esoteric teaching of Jesus is about the “Kingdom of God” as the moment to moment event of being born (or Awakened) in and (thus) As the Divine Spirit-Breath.
The teaching and disposition of Jesus of Galilee can be summarized as follows: The Way is to Awaken in the Spiritual Divine—in each and every moment. The Way is to Awaken not only in but (also) As the Spiritual Divine—and (thus) to be Free and Happy.
