    "I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. (Ezek. 36:24–27)"

    Therefore, you will be Divine, as God's spirit is within you, and follow Divine will. Know anyone like that?

    I can easily use the Bible's words for my own ends, should I wish it. I have no need, but whichever way you view it, the Bible, as an alternative source that I don't live by, does support my own point of view.

    He was making entrance into the kingdom contingent on something that could not be obtained through human effort.
    That's it exactly.

    Mere saintliness, even a life of self-sacrificing philanthropy, is not sufficient. True, self-forgetfulness, to live to benefit mankind, is the first step;
    Bear in mind that I see re-incarnation as the reality...
    There are no 'steps'. No process to go through, goals to attain, or good deeds to do. You are doing what is needed simply by living your life. As you might think, how that life is conducted is crucial. Make the wrong choices and it will take longer to reach the ultimate, and no other can do it for you. Your choices.... Not what others tell you.
    Service to mankind will happen as a part of that. Like Christ, right? It's not that hard is it?
