Meditation, the Gateway Home

Starting with just two minutes a day will help with getting into the meditation habit. Meditation for 30 minutes a day, even broken up in three 10 minutes or two 15 minutes session helps incorporating meditation into your daily life. The practice should not be uncomfortable, but pleasant and enjoyable. Each person should go at their   own pace and their own way. Daily meditation is a positive step for anyone on the spiritual path.

Besides the countless benefits of meditation,  Andrew Newberg, MD Director of Research, Myrna Brind Center of Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital  has being doing research and suggest that Human beings appear to have spiritual brains; brains that are capable of feeling deeply connected to something greater than themselves and that we can develop intense beliefs about God.  His research reveals the fascinating relationship between the universal spiritual urge and the intricate workings of the human brain. He did brain scans of Franciscan Nuns while they were engaged in a type of meditative prayer called centering prayer.  The brain scans showed many different changes, including changes in he parts of the brain that are involved in the sense of self, providing evidence that meditative prayer has a measurable effect on the brain.

What science is just now proving,  Tibetan Buddhist have known for years. There is  images (54) rainbow body loving thoughtsan advanced spiritual practice known as the Rainbow Body.  It involves the practitioner being able to dissolve their body and mind into light at the time of death and even during their lifetime.   It was reported that when a person dies, rainbows suddenly appeared in the sky and after several days their bodies disappeared. Sometimes fingernails and hair were left. Sometimes nothing was left.  A rainbow light has been witnessed by thousands of people after death.  Attaining ‘rainbow body’ is discussed in Zen texts, as well as Zoroastrian, Christian, Manichean, Muslim, Bonpo, and of course, Vedic texts, among others. Attaining the ‘light body’ is for everyone. There is ample proof  it actually does occur and has in ancient times.

Father Francis Tiso, author of  Rainbow Body and Resurrection,   a gave this presentation at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco providing his evidence that such a thing occurs. Father  Tiso also discusses the implications of an  images rainbow monkIONS-sponsored research project investigating a specific case of the Tibetan Buddhist practices of the “Rainbow Body,” the ostensible dematerialization of the physical body after death.

Some believe these stories reflect upon the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is central to the Christian faith. Jesus was loving and compassionate, selfless person. When he died, according to the gospels, his body was no longer there. Jesus said in Matthew 6:22  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 The eye is the lamp of   the body. If your  vision is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your vision is poor, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

The eye is the lamp of the body, also known  as the third eye, the sixth Chakra. This Chakra, if the vision is clear,  receives the Intelligent Energy from God. These energies pour or stream down into the individual’s body, mind and spirit.

rainbow bodyUnderstanding and obtaining a rainbow body is available to everyone.  Buddha said “Before you set foot on the path master yourself”  “Master yourself’   Simply make a commitment  and start by just sitting quietly for a specific period of time in a comfortable place. In the Law of One,  Session 15.12 explains how an individual can work on balancing the self and provides the steps of how to balance each Chakra.  Scott Mandelker PhD, provides his commentary and reading of session 15.12 on his YouTube video, essential information for balancing the self.

Make meditation a habit and it will change your life. Consider it God’s gift to all of us so we may find our way home.  Only you have the key to unlock the door.

 

 

Jesus said: If those who lead you say to you: See, the kingdom is in heaven, then the birds of the heaven will go before you; if they say to you: It is in the sea, then the fish will go before you. But the kingdom is within you, and it is outside of you. When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will know that you are the sons of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you are in poverty, and you are poverty. Gospel of Thomas verse 3

Is Love the Divine Law?

A Divine law is believed to come directly from God.  But is it a law as we know it, such as  thou shalt not kill, steal, lie or is it more of a physic law. Or perhaps, we simply use the word law because otherwise  it is beyond our understanding.  Love,  as we understanding it,  would  certainly curtail any negative action against anyone we loved.

Our Spiritual teachers, Jesus,  Krishna, Buddha and Lao Tzu and many more provided their wisdom to help answer that question. god is love

Jesus said love your neighbor as yourself.

Buddha said out of the abundance of your heart, cultivate love and compassion for all beings.

Lao Tzu said nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself.

Krishna said those find the “Way” are those who have love and forgiveness in their hearts.

.  The ancient Greeks used 7 words to define the different states of love:
  • Storge: natural affection, the love you share with your family.
  • Philia: love  you have for friends.
  • Eros: sexual and erotic desire kind of love (positive or negative)
  • Agape: unconditional love, or divine love
  • Ludus:  playful love, like childish love or flirting.
  • Pragma: long-standing love. The love in a married couple.
  • Philautia: the love of the self (negative or positive)
The 18th century mystic and spiritual explorer Emanuel Swedenborg said,  “man knows that there is such a thing as love, but he does not know what love is. He knows that there is such a thing as love from common speech, as when it is said, he loves me, a king loves his subjects, and subjects love their king, a husband loves his wife, a mother her children, and conversely; also, this or that one loves his country, his fellow citizens, his neighbor; and likewise of things abstracted from person, as when it is said, one loves this or that thing Although the word love is so universally used, hardly anybody knows what love is.”
Love is the most powerful emotion we can experience, a force to be reckoned with.  Perhaps that is why love is considered the one  “Divine Law”, the emotion that conquers all emotions.
We all have difficulties in expressing universal love or compassion.  According to the Law of One,  we are here to evolve spiritually through healing and balancing by learning the ways of love with wisdom.   It is about healing,  by knowing yourself, accepting  yourselves and other selves and knowing we are all  part of the Creator.
Session  5.2  provides the steps for the healing process.
Scott Mandelker PhD, combines eclectic Western psychology with intensive study of Eastern religions, and followed upon years of formal training in US and Asian Buddhist temples said the Law of One  material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”.   You will find his understanding and reading of session 5 on YouTube

 

 

We all have our own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., about love that should be shared with the world in your own way.   May the force be with you.

One Day Lyrics

 

See everybody that´s existing
Got a mind of their own
We´re all Kings and Queens
With a throne of our own
Tryin to raise a family
Is an empty home
We got to learn to stick together
Hate to be here alone
‘Cause the world is a place
That will eat you alive in one day
Said the world is a place
That you can´t survive without faith
Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it´ll all turn around
Because
All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
It´s not about
Win or lose
We all lose
When they feed on the souls of the innocent
Blood drenched pavement
Keep on moving though the waters stay raging
In this maze you can lose your way (your way)
It might drive you crazy
But don’t let it faze you no way (no way)
Gotta hold on
Livin life day by day
Gotta hold on
Put your focus on that one day
All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day this all will change
Treat people the same
Stop with the violence
Down with the hate
One day we´ll all be free
And proud to be
Under the same sun
Singing songs of freedom like
Gotta hold on
Livin life day by day
Gotta hold on
Put your focus on that one day
All my life I´ve been waiting for
I´ve been praying for
For the people to say
That we don´t wanna fight no more
They´ll be no more wars
And our children will play
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)
One day (one day), One day (one day)

World Intention

As children of the Creator, we demand all negativity and chords be removed from our planet. We ask that our world be filled with abundant love,  light and happiness. May our love flow like water, blessing all those that come within. May we remove old patterns that no longer serve us and all those that enter the light may truly see and receive blessings that are abundant for all. May all negative energies that are trying to bring us down be removed, and each thought, emotion and action allow the love and light to flow. May we ask the angels to guard and protect us, and to heal our bodies, mind and spirits, to feel the love and light, happiness and gratitude it deserves.
