Christ was once asked when the kingdom of God would come. The kingdom of God, Christ replied, is not something people will be able to see and point to. Then came these striking words: “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21)
With these words, Christ gave voice to a teaching that is universal and timeless. Look into every great religious, spiritual, and wisdom tradition, and we find same percept that is life ultimate treasure, lies within us. As Christ made unambiguously clear, you can experience this inner treasure — and no experience could be more valuable. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,” he declared, “and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). From this interior plane of life, he is saying, you will gain all that is needful.
The soul leaves all surface appearances, not only those that can be grasped by the senses but also those which the mind itself seems to see, and keep on going deeper until by the operation of the it penetrates the invisible and incomprehensible, and it is there that sees God. The true vision and the true knowledge of what we seek consist precisely in not seeing, in a awareness that our goal transcends all knowledge.
The soul has a hidden abyss, untouched by time and space, which is far superior to anything that gives life and movement to the body. Into this noble and wondrous ground, this secret realm, there descends that bliss of which we have spoken. Here the soul has its eternal abode. Here a man becomes so still and essential, so single minded and withdrawn, so raised up in purity and more and more removed from all things. This state of the soul can not be compared to what it is been before, for now it is granted to share in the divine life itself.
Master Prophet E. Bernard Jordan believes that all this message of the inner life and outer life is not new, the same age old message of the kingdom of Heaven within. It is the same age-old, centuries old message, but the message emphasizes today that it is easy for everyone. Without exception, born as man, every man has the right, the legitimate right to enjoy all glories that belong to him, all glories of the inner world and all glories of the outside world. And here is a process every man can directly experience for himself.
