In “western” religions we’re educated to look for a Savior or a Mahdi to come and avenge the righteous and put the wicked asunder. I’m sure a long debate could come forward from the idea of people waiting for a Mahdi or Savior or which religious tenet is correct. Suppose, however, that neither is correct or even that both are correct and suppose the Savior and Mahdi are one and the same and their appearance was upon you. How would you react? Suppose that all the information you’ve learned all your life doesn’t prepare you for what you see.
I have often envisioned the Returning One would be someone much different than what we have learned. I have imagined that the Returning One would be in the form of a human being that you would consider your enemy. If you are white it would be Black or non-white, or white if you’re Black. Maybe Jewish if you’re Muslim, Shia if you’re Sunni or maybe atheist if you’re a Christian. Whatever the case, the Returning One maybe much different than we suspect.
More than likely, the Returning One has come, gone and come again right in front of our eyes. And we were blind to their existance. Blind because our own prejudice keep us with out sight. There is going to come a time when all will be revealed through your own consciousness.
