We are all on this journey of life, seeking to find the meaning of our existence, to know our true selves. But before you can know yourself, you should consider that we have been programed since birth. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we are and who we become. We have gently been guided daily with subliminal messages and chemicals that alter our genes and the way we think. It is a worldwide system of control to keep us occupied with what has become what we believe is normal. All you have to do is ask yourself, who controls these systems and why do they want control? The truth is so unbelievable that most will simply discard it! Each of us have a higher power within, a power that is waiting to be awakened. The majority of the world’s population seeks that higher power- the divine spark known by many different names: higher self, spirit, kundli, soul, chi, prana, chakras. It is understood as energy through many names and meanings in world religions and belief systems. We go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places of worship to seek the truth.
Our belief systems contain hidden truths that can be used as stepping stones for the path of our journey. For me, I grew up as an orthodox christian and graduated from a Christian university. Now, I do not follow any religion but respect and find truth in all religions. Religions divide us when they should unite us. One core belief of all religions is love, compassion, wisdom and service to others. Like politics, religion can be changed by the people. If only the world lived by one simple message Jesus was teaching, we can change our world, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ By honoring and respecting others’ beliefs and religions, not only will it bring us closer together, but closer to our Creator.
We can learn from each other. As an example, the energy in our bodies are known as chakras, taught by the Hindus; Buddha teaches us about attachment and higher self; Taoism speaks of the way or the path; Muslims teach us God communicates guidance through human prophets; Judaism teaches us to prohibit the extinction of species and causing undue pain to non-human creatures and Christians follow the teaching of Jesus as many religions do, just in a different context.
One thing we have learned, we are all spiritual beings with a body and mind made of electromagnetic energy. Our thoughts help create our reality through emotions. When you see someone walk into a room smiling or crying, you are affected by emotional vibrations. Negative and positive emotional vibrations control our lives and we become what we think.
Through meditation and reprogramming of what we have been taught since birth, we can better understand how to awaken that divine spark within. Father Francis Tiso, a very controversial Priest, talks about our divine spark in this video.
One should realize there is so much beyond our understanding, but perhaps now we have come to a time and place where we can begin to learn.
The world is at our fingertips. We can read sacred texts written centuries ago with the understanding that they were written for that specific time and place. The original messages of these texts may have been changed or lost as scribes added, deleted, or misunderstood words and passages during translation.
One example is about Jesus when he said “seek and you will find.” In the New Testament of the Bible, Matthew 7.7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
In the Gospel of Thomas that was discovered in 1945, (2) Jesus said, “Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All.”
In 1945, thirteen ancient texts called “codices” were discovered in upper Egypt untouched by scribes. They were translated in 1970 and are known as the The Nag Hammadi Library. Scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth were found, all thought to be destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define “orthodoxy.”
Other information was obtained though a source called Channeling, such as Oahspe, published in 1882; Urantia, sometime between 1924 and 1955 and believed to be channeled; and from 1981-1984, The Law of One.
Are the discoveries divine intervention at a time we can communicate around the world instantly?
The Law of One was published most recently and made available to everyone. In it, our purpose of existence is revealed as well as the consequences of our behavior. It uses a more metaphysical, scientific and complex vocabulary to explore some of the same concepts we have learned in our religious systems. It explores and explains the human race and our past, present and provides us with a glimpse into the future. Simply stated, it is about love, light, wisdom, free-will, and seeking the truth.
Skeptics call it a hoax, others call it waste of time or actually harmful practice. Others call the entity contacted “RA” as the in Egyptian mythology and disregard the message.
The Law of One is an advanced approach to our belief systems, what we call seeking the truth. Every religion has a law, but was this message to clarify those Laws? Was the Law of One sent at a time so it could not be changed by man? The three people that made contact dedicated their lives to provide this information to the world. They did not profit or gain popularity. The entire three years of their work is available free on the internet.
We have arrived at a point in time where we as humans, “body, mind and spirit” regardless of religion, can come together, with love, compassion, wisdom and be a service to others. We should understand the differences and look at those differences with love and understanding. The path for one may not the be the path of another by divine design. Remember, religion is just one path, your divine spark is with you always. Ultimately the truth will be known, so listen to yourself, there is not a better teacher.
If there is to be peace in the world, There must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbors. If there is to be peace between neighbors, There must be peace in the home. If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart. chinese philosopher – Lao-Tzu – 6th century bce
