Religious or Spiritual?

After a long journey experiencing Christianity and studying other major religions, I have found religions are one path to our long journey seeking the truth. For the most part religions are a set of rules, rituals and beliefs made up by man for others to follow.

On any spiritual journey, finding commonality among religions is always helpful in our search of the Way. Ancient texts have much to offer if applied properly to your journey.

In the Dialogue of the Savior, Jesus said, “ When I came among humanity, I opened the door to the Way. I showed the path that you must follow. You will find it within religious-wheelyourselves.”

In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishana said, “ I have revealed to you the most secret doctrine…Those who are able to see it have seen the light .”

Buddha said, “Words cannot describe what the Way is, but do no lose sight of it, for then it might be lost forever.”

And in the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu said, “I seek to understand and walk the Way so that I do not lose sight of it. The Way is not complex, nor is it hidden from anyone. People just choose to ignore it.”

We are all spiritual beings living in a 3 D world seeking and looking for the truth or the Way. We are all living in this moment where information is at our fingertips. We all have special knowledge and/or abilities that we will not find in any religion, but only within ourselves.

The Gnostic Gospels, over 50 texts discovered in Nag Hammadi, Egypt, include ‘secret’ gospels poems and myths attributing to Jesus sayings and beliefs which are very different from the New Testament. You can find them in the the Nag Hammadi Library. Why were they left out of the new testament?

The Gospel of Thomas has 114 sayings of Jesus. These are secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.

(1) And he said, “Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death.”

(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.”

Just the first two passages gets your attention. The second one was somewhat puzzling until I came across something that happened in the recent past. The Law of One is an exact transcript from tape recordings during channelling episodes by Don Elkins, Carla Rueckert and James McCarty starting in 1981 and ending in 1984. During those three years they spoke with Ra, a humble messenger of the Law of One. The Law of One states that there is only One, and that One is the Infinite Creator.

Is Reincarnation for Real?

reincarnationcycleBuddhism, Hinduism and Jainism have adopted reincarnation as part of their mainstream teachings and there are other sects of other religions that incorporate reincarnation on a smaller level, such as Kabbalah and Druze.

According to The Law of One,  this life is a training ground, to learn to love unconditionally and to serve others.  We get a chance to get it right not once, or twice but a number of times through reincarnation, not just here, but throughout the universe. The Law of One Society provides more insight.

If life is a test and we are held accountable for our actions, how do you want to score on the test?  It is free will, so you get to choose.  The penalty for getting it wrong is that you’re get to do it again, but there is a catch: you do not remember; that is, unless you’re a child.  There are many stories from children supporting reincarnation and many case studies supporting reincarnation from a scientific approach with past life videos.

reincarnationSo let’s assume, we do not learn and we are reincarnated when we die.  You could be a male or female of any ethnic group, in a completely different culture, rich or poor, with or without physical or mental handicap.  If you have learned, you evolve.  The Law of One, also on video, although difficult to understand to some degree, is worth the effort. All religions were given the same message and are considered equal and even provides answers to some age-old questions.

Life is our testing ground and we all have free will, to choose what we believe and what we do.  Could be as simple as learning to love and be a service to others.

Why Does Evil Exist?

There is an age old question of why God allows evil to exist.  Sacred texts such as the Bible, Vedas, Quran, Tanakh, just to name a few, have been trying to explain that and our purpose for centuries. Man is probably more confused today than ever before. Religions do not seem to fill that void so spirituality takes over. Research has proven meditation and prayer can change our brains but still does not answer the question, only provides some insight for our spiritual side.

So why does God allow evil to exist? Consider, this life may be our testing ground. Free will, the right to choose, how we live may be the test. Do we live to serve ourselves or do we live to serve others? Do we love unconditional or do we really know what love means? What happens if we don’t learn? So many unanswered questions throughout the ages. cropped-inh.jpg

However, in 1981 to 1983, there was a message to the world. The first book, “The Law of One”, was published in 1984. There was very little press and no meaningful way to get the information to the world until recently. The Law of One took three years to finalize and publish, and was channeled through an entity called RA, a humble messenger of the infinite creator. In his message, RA talks about world events past and present, i.e. why there is evil, where we came from, why we are here where we are going. There is no religion affiliation and it is available free to anyone who is seeking the truth. You decide if it is a message from God, after all it is free will.
