Yeshua & Materialism
Spirit says: Yeshua taught that EVERYONE is "God made manifest through the Flesh". As we are all "God", we are all deserving of the basic human needs to sustain our bodies, "The Temple of the Soul".

To be Holy in thought, word, action, and deed is difficult, as the human mind strays to that which will bring but temporary pleasure to the body-physical. Humans are easily led down this path of acquisition for the material, as if these things will somehow satisfy the Soul in its desire to be Whole.
Of course, one must care for the body-physical and not deny it basic sustenance of food, clothes, shelter for how else can the body-physical serve as Temple for the Divine-within-Flesh unless it is whole and well?
But massive accumulation of material goods for the sake of collecting is a delusional diversion. There are some things that speak of a Higher Truth, such as art and music, and these of course are encouraged, as is prayer and writings. But of course to hoard even these and keep them for oneself is epitome of the ego, as art and music and prayer and writings are Divine reflections as made in the hearts and minds of Man/Woman and to be shared with one's Fellowman, not hoarded and secluded. And the poorest of the poor shall receive these gifts, as well as the rich, for are they, too, not made of Divinity-within-Flesh and so, too, of the Godhead?
Humans form hierarchies of "worth" based upon "wealth" but this is a delusional falsehood, for are not all Humans the same when stripped of all accoutrement, to stand naked before their Godhood?
Why, so it was/is that Yeshua, the Beloved Son of God, came among you, to preach that no man is higher than another, no matter wealth or title, that all stand equally before God, for indeed all are God, made manifest through the Flesh! So simple a Truth, so easily misunderstood, even Yeshua's Disciples did not grasp the simplicity. And so, as all are equally Divine, then so, too, are all equally loved, and all, each separate in their unique mind-bodies, are deserving of Love and Light, and all are equally deserving of that which sustains the Flesh, the Temple of the Soul.
In your political system humans equate this with "communism" or "socialism" and equate this basic concept with "evil," but evil exists only in the hearts and minds of men. Is it godly to deny your Fellow-man food, shelter, clothing, love, music, art, dignity? Answer that question not with your mind, but with your heart/soul. Therefore, from Yeshua's mouth came the words to treat thy neighbor, love thy neighbor, as thyself--what does this mean but that as you put food into your own mouth, you put food into your neighbor's mouth? As you clothe and shelter yourself, so you clothe and shelter your neighbor.
Your global economy and political systems are set up with the principle of hoarding the material, for the aggrandizement of the few and the wealthy, to the detriment of your Fellow-man. Change the underlying core value to that of LOVE and your political and social systems will follow, and change radically. See?
Not so simple? But it is, my dear fellow Gods-in-the-Flesh, it is.
Love and Light,
