Until Mind Consciousness becomes conscious of itself as Spiritual Consciousness, the thoughts you take and create are for the most part, false images. They are false images as they are created by a mind cut off from itself Spiritually like a branch from the vine.
The ONLY way Mind Consciousness (I) and Spiritual Consciousness (I) can meet and merge under and as Grace is through the Present Moment Aka as the Human Soul (Subconscious - Am) animated by the One true Undifferentiated Soul (Am) which is the pure activity of Spirit (I)
I am that I am.
(So Spiritual Consciousness () True Soul/Human Soul () Mind Consciousness).
The Conscious Mind and the Subconscious Mind must come together as ONE, through meditation and mindfulness. This produces the Christ or Buddha Mind which is the perfect conduit for the true Self (I AM) to flow through and into the world to bless all creatures great and small.
Therefore, the Temple must be purified through shadow work, mindfulness, and meditation, so that the Conscious Mind can rest within it, without rising in thought. The Conscious Mind only rises in thought if the Subconscious is not emotionally settled and at peace. Once the Subconscious has been tempered and the Conscious Mind is resting in its peace (RIP) the Ego dies as it is only because of false images (False thoughts) that it lived in the first place.
The Temple is now ready for the coming of the Lord Aka Self -Realization whereby Spiritual Consciousness flows through Mind Conscious giving thought in the form of intuition, inspiration, Clair-cognizance, clairvoyance, clairsentience, etc.
This is what the Wine Parable is about. As well as when Jesus turned water (false images) into wine (True Images).
“Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved” (Matthew 9:16-17).
“Jesus, his mother, (Soul) and his disciples (Cleansed Vasana's) attend a wedding in the village of Cana. When the wine runs out at the feast, Jesus turns water (False images) into wine (True images - true Knowledge), thus demonstrating his divinity to his disciples” - John 2:1-11
Remember the bible is complete allegory and never to be taken literally. It is when discerned correctly saying exactly the same thing as Buddha and Lao Tzu.
To conclude, protect yourself from your thoughts, until you have been realized. The mind will lie to you – it will lead you to your own destruction through its ignorance, arrogance, and selfish addictions based on its barrenness.
Until one is realized, practice love until you become Love which is Soul and never personal.
