One day, some of Yeshu’a an Nasiri Ihidaya’s (i.e. 'Jesus of Nazareth, whom his Aramaic-speaking disciples called "One Who Is Awake") disciples came to him seeking a rule of life,

"Mahyana (Aramaic for ‘Life Giver’), please give us a rule of life that we can practice every day.

What kind of lifestyle should we follow?

What should we eat?

What should we drink?

How should we fast?

How should we pray?

How should we practice charity?"

Yeshu’a replied,

"My beloved disciples, why do you strain at gnats while swallowing the camel, as the priests and religious teachers?

If you wish to truly and fully realize (manifest) the abundance of the Kingdom there is but one rule of Life —

the Royal Law of Love.

In the realization of Pure Love

begin by letting go of identification

with the hypocrisy —

the masks, costumes, roles and identities of the false sense of self —

the games —

that the acquired, conditioned, egoic separate sense of self has learned to play —

and simply live

authentically —

open, honest (authentic), transparent, and natural —

as

your

True

Self



abiding in your Original Innocence



in all your interactions and encounters —

in thought, word and deed —

with all manifestations of Life.

For when you realize (embody) the Truth,

the Truth will set you free.

And in like wise

do

no

harm.

Do not do to others what you yourself do not want done to you.

Do for others what you yourself want done for you.

Love

your brothers —

your sisters —

whether element, mineral, microbe, mycelia, plant, animal, human —

all

manifestations

of

Life



as

your

Self

For your brother —

your sister —

is

your

Self



simply

in

disguise

This is the Way of Purity



this is the Way

of

Pure

Love

Awaken and remember

Not two
