Our perception and understanding of God is based on our religious beliefs and upbringing. The belief system we are born into is normally where we stay. It will vary from person to person.
I try to imagine and comprehend the magnitude of the Infinite Divine Energy we have named God. I abandoned the concept of the judgemental God of the Abrahamic religions years ago and consider God’s Divine Energy encompasses all and love as the life pulse. We are all players in the game of life and may have a bigger impact on our world than we will ever know. It is always a challenge when reading sacred texts, realizing man has has somehow tampered with most. The purpose is either one of control or an effort to explain something more clearly. Either way we are here to figure it out for ourselves and the answer may be within each of us, just a heartbeat away.
I remember I was having doubts about my spiritual journey, and just wanted confirmation, something to give me a sign to continue. So one day last year in 2018, there was little or no chance of rain. During meditation I just wanted some evidence because sometimes the spiritual path is a lonely journey. I asked for rain, any amount for that day, just to let me know I was not alone. Afterwards, about 30 minutes later, I was sitting outside. Nothing was really happening. Then clouds started to form, which was not a big deal. Then a little thunder and few drops of rain started coming down. I felt indescribable joy. It really was happening. Then it started to rain and it rained five inches in 30-45 minutes. The news reported a cloudburst happened in a one square mile area and I was at the center.
We live in physical and metaphysical worlds, inseparable yet most of the time we realize only the physical. How many times have you spoken to God, perhaps in a prayer or meditation or just a discussion, and something happened based on that conversation. At first we may rule it a coincidence, but we have to remember we are an inseparable part of the Universal Consciousness . We are limited in the physical world by our five senses; see, feel, hear, taste and smell. Our metaphysical world is unseen or under the veil. Awareness of the metaphysical world, the unseen world, is helpful in understanding the Divine Energy that encompasses all. Our physical world is shaped by the positive and negative energy of our thoughts, emotions and actions. When we look at the physical world in isolation, we miss much of what is happening not only to the universe but within ourselves. Perhaps that is where we find God, that Divine Spark or energy in each of us; part of the Divine Universal Energy, Universal Consciousness.
God is just a heartbeat away and you can have a conversation anytime you choose. Trusting God is trusting yourself. Realize who you are; know you are part of this creation in your every thought, emotion and action.
Have you ever considered why the concept of our energy centers, the chakras, has not been accepted or taught in mainstream? Perhaps those who rule do not want you to understand your full potential. Until the world became available to us via internet, we were very limited on the information we receive. Communication occurred more between governments, institutions and religions than people. We simply have beenprogrammed.
Ancient traditions knew of the pineal or third eye, the sixth chakra, and all its mysteries. They knew of the pineal role in our spiritual development and communication with metaphysical world. Even Jesus said “Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light.
In Buddhism, the third eye refers to Eye of Consciousness, seeing the world beyond physical eyes. In Hinduism the third eye is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge. Within Taoism, the third eye, known as Ancestral Cavity, serves as the cavity of profound and ancient knowledge and can be accessed through meditation and contemplation.
Today in is being reported that the Pineal Gland has highest levels of fluoride in our body. Fluoride is in our water system and dental products. One should ask why?
In the Law of One, the third eye is our gateway to connect with Infinite Intelligence. In order to connect, we have to balance, understand and unblock our lower chakras. Each Chakra is an energy center. The 1st chakra, or red-ray is basic and fundamental. The second Chakra, or orange-ray is the emotional or personal energy center. The third Chakra, or yellow-ray is what we call the ego. The fourth Chakra, the heart chakra, known as the green-ray, is our understanding of universal love or compassion. The fifth Chakra, known as the blue-ray, is our understandings of ourselves and our communication with others.
The more blockages we have in our lower chakras the less flow of Intelligent Energy we receive. Our goal is to unblock our lower chakras and connect with Infinite Intelligence. Loving others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others; understand our thoughts, emotions, and actions create our reality; and meditation, contemplation and prayer are the gateway to Infinite Intelligence. The Law of One, session 15.12 provides a more spiritual advanced understanding of the Chakras. Commentary by Scott Mandelker, PhD provides an in-depth analysis of the 7 chakras in the Law of One, Session 15, part 2.
Science has actually proven meridians exist in our body. Our life energy, known as Chi or Qi, ad prana is distributed by these channels through our energy centers.
Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, is a former medical school professor and research scientist, and author of ” The Biology of Belief. ” His research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. His work was a major breakthrough showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking. Dr Joe Dispenza, another researcher proved that point by healing himself after breaking 6 vertebrae in his back and being told he would never walk again.
The Chakras are about energy within each of us. We all have abilities that require us to know ourselves and realize how our chakras as well as our thoughts, emotions and actions cannot not only heal us, but creates our reality. We are energetic beings with a power within each of us. The only one that can unleash that divine power is you. Perhaps that is the reason chakras are not accept or taught.
Love, sex and spirituality have much in common but first “What is love?” A question mankind has pondered and contemplated since the beginning. And the question of “What is sex?” is no less problematic and both are questions we generally have answers, but is it the complete answer?
Love is the greatest emotion. It is said Love conquers all and some believe it is better to have lost in love than to never have loved at all. Love has different levels of emotions for each person. From loving our pet, parents, kids, friends and partners, we all experience love differently. Some love others freely while others try to hide their emotions.
Love is infinitely created and available from the source of all life. Love flows from the Spirit of God, some may refer to as the Holy Spirit. Others refer to as Universal Energy, intelligence beyond our understanding. It is the purest form of energy encompassing all. We all have the ability and desire to connect to the purest and highest form of love. According to the Law of One, our purpose in life is to learn the many ways of love, including love for those not close to us. Jesus’ message was love thy neighbor as yourself and love your enemies. Another interesting message from the Law of One is love and light are the same, and Jesus tells us we are from the light, in the Gospel of Thomas.
What about sexual love. Some believe it a subject that should not be discussed. Others may consider it sinful and forbidden. A core function of religion is to regulate and control sexuality and the control of sexuality is not only a moral imperative, but a way to maintain control of followers. Why are so many spiritual movements obsessed with eradicating the sexual aspect of our lives? One reason may be the body and the intellect are connected and, in cases of sexuality, the body may completely overcome the intellect and the spirit. In love and friendship, two spirits seem to feel and communicate with each other by affection and the union of their bodies. The body and spirit are intertwined, and as physical connection with one may lead to connection with the other. Sexuality is such a part of human nature that despite academic assertions that gender is socially constructed, there seems to be something about sexuality that transcends culture. The point at which the sexual transcends the cultural is where the sexual becomes the spiritual.
From the book by Dr.Vladimir Antonov , The Original Teachings of Jesus Christ, according to Gospel of Mary Magdalene, when she was blamed for adultery and brought for judging to Jesus: “They caught me and wanted to stone me. I, sinful, loved one man who was married and had three children. Relatives of his wife brought me to the square and began to shout in a loud voice, ‘Let us kill the adulteress! She desecrated the law!’ “Then… Christ told them, ‘Let him, who is without a sin, throw the first stone!’ And (He)… made the crowd disperse.
“Then He approached me and kneeled before me. “… I was burning with shame and fear. The sublime was taking place in me, in the soul. I fell on the ground and cried. He stroked my hair and said: ‘My dear sister, find strength to listen to Me! Much evil exists on this Earth, many lies have been said by the evil one! Forget that you are a sinner and tell Me whether your heart lives when you love?’
‘It does, Lord! When I do not love, it is dead!’ ‘Then love, heavenly sister, and do not sin anymore by thinking that you are a sinner.’” Jesus also told her the following: “What is sinful in this world is righteous in My Father’s Kingdom! The (True) Life is the life of love, not the life of hatred! “Many of the ‘righteous’ hate and condemn. But I say to you, an adulteress who does not hate will be better in the Judgement Day than the ‘righteous’ who condemn!” (Questions of Mary, 13-15)
Sexual love could be the greatest gift two people can share. It is interesting that many scientists and psychologists believe that desire or lust is a bodily urge, much like hunger or the blood’s need for oxygen. For anyone who has had those sleepless nights, driven to the edge of despair by an unquenchable desire for another, is probably very believable for many. According to clinical psychologist Dr. Rob Dobrenski “in many ways we can’t control what we desire because it is a hard-wired emotional and physiological response.” Perhaps this is a prelude, not only to learn and understand love, but to love passionately; to be able to fall in love; and learn of the powerful emotion affects of love, for us and those around us.
According to the Law of One , there is a sexual energy transfer when two lovers who are at the same spiritual level, merging into oneness. The energy overwhelms the lovers, emerging them with the peace, calmness and love that cannot be found anywhere else on earth. An euphoria that could only be describe and the oneness when we merge with Infinite Intelligence.
The Law of One discusses the beneficial energy transfer who are at the same level, when their love is in green ray, or heart chakra. In session 26.38 discusses the transfer and how the energy transfer will be blocked if either lover has fear of possession, of being possessed, or desiring possession or desiring being possessed. Emotional blockages prevent further development.
Emotional blockages come in all forms of life situations. What we have been taught about sex, sexual abuse, using sex to control or hurt others, sexual misconduct, or any negative sexual experience.
It is the process of learning about love through sexuality , it is an art of giving yourself and your love fully to your partner through sexual relationships. And only a combination of sincere and giving love on the side of both partners can lead to energy transfer.
Our sexuality was conceived by Infinite Intelligence not only as a means of reproduction but also as a method to develop spiritually. It may facilitate the cultivation of such aspects of love as tenderness, care, self-giving, merging of two consciousnesses into one, which prepares one to the merging with Infinite Intelligence.
Tenzin Palmo Jetsunma interviewed about romanticism that makes us confuse genuine love with attachment – and how it causes suffering in relationships.
We are on earth is to learn and understand Love and how to balance it with wisdom. Consider a ethically correct spiritual sexual life directly contributes to developing the ability to love. God is Love and Love is energy. If we want to merge with Infinite Intelligence, we should transform ourselves into Love as well by living in a state of spiritual awareness with the highest priority Be loving to yourself and others; be compassionate about people, animals and our planet; know and understand the Oneness of all, and consciously attempt to honor this Oneness. Radiating love and light is the start for us all.
Buddha said, “For hatred will never put an end to hatred; love alone can. This it the unalterable law.”
As we go through life, sooner or later we will face disturbing effects of illness, diseases and failing health. The medical system is failing, ran by the pharmaceutical corporations; our food supply is being replaced by nutrient deficient food; genetically modified foods and, glyphosate has been found in the water supply. Even the air we breathe is questionable. When we are focused on all the obstacles we face daily, it is difficult to stay committed to a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes it helps to remember we are here for a purpose; to discover our true selves.
With falling health, our human bodies become frail, our minds become confused with fear and anger, feeling defeated. But our spirit, our higher self, tells us to keep going, to not give up. Most do not realize that we have been programmed since birth. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we have become and how we think. Our lives are connected to family, friends, work, school and the material world, all affecting our health; positively and negatively.
As we begin to discover our true selves, spiritual healing begins with the realization there is a Source, Universal Intelligence of pure sacred energy, that connects us all. We begin to think and believe we can heal ourselves. Controlling the mind is key, not only for our health be for our spiritual journey.
Buddha said, “Hard it is to train the mind, which goes where it likes and does what it wants. But a trained mind brings health and happiness. The wise can direct their thoughts, subtle and elusive, whenever they choose: a trained mind brings health and happiness.”
We have to deprogram ourselves, so to speak, and perhaps think differently. There is another world that is inseparable from our physical world that cannot be detected with the five senses; our metaphysical world. It is the world of the Source, pure energy simply beyond our understanding. It is the energy generated by our hearts and minds. Science is beginning to study what we already know. One study makes a striking correlation between heart rate and the electromagnetic energy from the sun and earth. Even health care providers are understanding the correlation between spirituality, religion and mental health.
The Source is our life line. In Chinese cultures, this is known as chi or qi and other cultures ki, prana, chakras and kundalini. Our body, mind, and spirit have a life force we call electromagnetic energy or energy that cannot even be measured or thoroughly understood. Sunlight is something we cannot live without. Light is the food for all life on earth. The human body, according to the doctrine of chromotherapy, is basically composed of colors. Isn’t that what Jesus said, We are from the Light? We know insufficient sunlight will result in low Vitamin D deficiencies, leading to the development of prostate and breast cancer, memory loss, and an increased risk for developing dementia and schizophrenia. We have been told to wear sunscreen to protect ourselves but what is really happening? We are light beings with chakras and the energy of the sun has the colors of the rainbow. Every creature and plant on earth is engulfed in light that affects its health conditions.
Grounding, as we all know when we go to the beach, improves sleep and reduces stress. Grounding is bare skin to the earth, perhaps walking or performing Qigong or chi gong, or any meditative practice outside barefoot. It is an excellent way to cultivate energy. We all wear shoes and that prevents us from getting the benefits from the earth. Grounding is a simple way to prevent and help inflammation with these techniques.
Emotions control who we are and what be become. Paracelsus, Father of Modern Medicine said “The spirit is the master, imagination the tool, and the body the plastic material . . . The power of the imagination is a great factor in medicine. It may produce diseases in man and in animals, and it may cure them . .. Ills of the body may be cured by remedies or by the power of the spirit acting through the soul.” Thoughts and emotions control our destiny, so think what you want to become and do it in love, the strongest of all emotions.
Meditation and prayer are our connection to the Source but also essential in controlling the overactive mind. According to Dr. Andrew Newberg, meditation and prayer positively changes our brains. He also said that the brain has two primary functions that can be considered from either a biological or evolutionary perspective. Essentially, we are hard-wired for God, the Source.
A 12 minute exercise, called the Kirtan Kriya is a type of meditation, practiced daily for 8 weeks, will improve cognition and activate parts of the brain that are central to memory.
The power of visualization is a tool we can use for healing. Your brain is constantly using visualization in the process of simulating future experiences. This happens so naturally we generally aren’t even aware it is happening, much like we are unaware of our breathing or heart beating. If you are not aware of it then you are not actively directing the process. You can learn to use visualization to actively create future simulations that can help you improve goals that you set for yourself, such as healing. The same thing may apply to the lost mode of prayer. Visualizing your prayer as if it has already happened instead of asking for it.
We live in a world of distractions. Fear, anger, stress and greed will wear the body down, but love is the one emotion that will overcome all. In your own way, try to cultivate love in everything you do. Jesus said love your neighbor as you love yourself. According to the Law of One, our purpose on earth is to learn to balance love and wisdom and be of services to others. Healing starts with the mind and the realization of the power within, a change from traditional thinking. It is just you, your higher self with help from the Source. All the same divine energy connecting as one. All waiting on you.
What is God, the age-old question and it certainly has been mine. Since the beginning of time, as we understand it, man has struggled with the God concept. Most of us have our core beliefs from our childhood; others seek to understand through contemplation, reflection, meditation and prayer; all have a desire to have a personal relationship with God.
God is known by many names and according to religions of the world, in order to know God, we should follow their beliefs, rules and rituals. Based on my childhood and how I was taught about the Bible, God would be on a throne judging us for our behavior and our purpose was to worship God. Each of us have our own imaginations and beliefs about God, mostly from our childhood.
Through the centuries, different religions with different Gods making our understanding of God even more confusing. I always believed there was only one God, just called by many different names. Furthermore, in Judaism and Christianity alone, there is much confusion for me. Yahweh, is the God of the Old testament and Jewish Tanakh, is known as the God of the Israelites. The name was revealed to Moses as four Hebrew consonants (YHWH) called the Tetragrammaton. Consistent with Old Testament narratives, Yahweh or Jehovah was regarded as the stern creator God who justly punishes humanity for disobedience.
The Gnostics referenced Yaldabaoth, the old testament god as a ‘false god of this world’ and was known for his evil deeds. They believed the god of the Jews was the true devil who claimed for himself the title of ‘creator god’ and inverted the roles of good and evil through deception, presenting himself as the ‘benevolent father’ of mankind and slandering the Serpent of wisdom as ‘the devil’ and ‘enemy of man’. This accusatory inversion began with the creation of the Christian Bible at the end of the 1st century and has deceive many generations throughout the millennia. It should be noted our medical community uses a staff or rod with a snake curled around it, call the Rod of Asclepius, the ancient mythical god of medicine .
In the Law of One, Yahweh is mentioned 19 times and provides quite an in-depth detail about Yahweh’s involvement on earth. The Orion Group, the negative entities of our universe also plays a role in what happened in the old testament as well as today. Perhaps In Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” Was that God, Yahweh or Yaldabaoth? Who was Jesus talking about when the Jews said Abraham was their father. Jesus said in John 8:44 “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
Some Gnostic groups saw Jesus as being sent by the supreme being, to bring gnosis or knowledge to the Earth. The Law of One referenced Jesus 22 times and said “This entity was desirous of entering this planetary sphere in order to share the love vibration in as pure a manner as possible.”
Now let’s look at the New testament and how the church leaders constructed the concept of God. The Trinity aformal doctrine and foundation of the Christian faith, the father, Jesus and the Holy Ghost, meaning one God in three. The term trinity is not found in the Bible. The only reference of the three in the bible is Matthew 28:19 after Jesus resurrection. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Of course we all know how easily this could have been added by a church father or scribe.
The formal doctrine of the Trinity was the result of early church fathers attempts to explain the Christian God. It was first used by Tertullian at the close of the 2nd century. It was discussed, debated and finally clarified as divinity of the spirit and affirmed at the Council of Constantinople in 381. However scholars today generally agree that there is no doctrine of the Trinity as such in either the Old or New Testaments. The Trinity was a way church fathers could explain Jesus as the son of God if not God. A search of the Nag Hammadi Library of the Father, son and the holy spirit did not come up with any results. With the possibility of the corruption of the message of two major religions, perhaps it is time to pause, and seek the truth in our own way. Jesus was the messenger of love and in the message he was telling us what the church fathers have failed to teach.
In John 10:34, Jesus tells the Pharisees that it is written in the Law that “you are gods”. He is quoting from Psalm 82:6 where it says, “I said you are gods, sons of the Most High. All of you.”
In John 14:12 Jesus said , “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
In the Gospel of Thomas Jesus said in saying 3, If your leaders tell you, “Look, the kingdom is in heaven,” then the birds of heaven will precede you. If they say to you, “It’s in the sea,” then the fish will precede you. But the kingdom is inside you and it is outside you. When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you dwell in poverty and you are poverty.
The Gnostics believe that within each of us is a divine spark, a part of God. Some may call it soul or spirit. Regardless of what label man uses, God is a Divine Universal Energy within each of us waiting to be awakened by our acknowledgement by seeking the truth.
According to the Law of One , we are on earth to learn the ways of love, compassion, wisdom and be of service to others. We get as many opportunities as we need to learn the required lessons. If not, we die and do it again until we get it right. The big problem for us when we do it again, we do not remember anything from our previous lives, unless you’re a child, and then you may remember for a short period before forgetfulness sets in.
Regardless of the number of past lives, God, or the Great Universal Energy never leaves and is just waiting for us to discover the power within. I cannot emphasise the importance of the a recent discovery in 1945, 114 secret sayings of Jesus known as the Gospel of Thomas and 50 other Gnostic texts. According to scholars, the discovery provided striking differences from orthodox beliefs. Instead of being separate from God, we are One with God. Instead of sin and repentance, Jesus speaks of illusion and enlightenment. And finally, Instead of Jesus being Lord and God, we are all from the same source, and Jesus is our spiritual guide.
Another saying of Jesus, “I shall give you what no eye has seen and what no ear has heard and what no hand has touched and what has never occurred to the human mind.” (Saying 17 Gospel of Thomas). This saying is for each of us to ponder and consider as each of Jesus wisdom sayings in the Gospel of Thomas.
Buddha, another master teacher said before you set foot on the path master yourself; and Lao Tzu said, ” The Way (God) is complete in itself. All blessings come from it and it holds nothing back from anyone.” Krishna said in the Bhagavad Gita, “Those who seek to find the One without ceasing, will find the Lord dwelling in their own hearts.”
With love and compassion in your heart, thoughts, emotions and actions, look within; through meditation, contemplation, prayer and study, you will find that Great Universal Energy that we call God.
“The heart is like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love. What seeds will you plant there?”
Research has suggested that we are wired with spiritual brains and how meditative prayers actually changes the brain. Dr. Andrew Newbergis a neuroscientist who studies the relationship between brain function and various mental states. His research suggests we have spiritual brains, with a feeling of connectedness to something greater than ourselves, developing intense beliefs about God. Using brain scans, Dr Newberg measured brain activity of Franciscan Nuns while they were engaged in a type of meditative prayer. It showed measurable effect on the brain providing evidence that meditative prayer has an effect on the brain. Science has proven, what many of us already believed, meditation has a profound impact on our brains by meditative prayers.
There is an advanced spiritual practice investigated by Father Francis Tiso, author of Rainbow Body and Resurrection. He investigated a specific case of the Tibetan Buddhist, Khenpo A Cho and his practice of the “Rainbow Body, “. In 1992 and at the age of 74, Cho devoted himself to retreat practices. He recited more than 400 million of the mani-mantra, Om mani padme hum. Over and over he recited and promoted the recitation of the Long Life Prayer of the Protector of the Snow Ranges and the Heart prayer of the Enlightened Activities pervading space related to his holiness the Dalai Lama and Avalokiteshvara.
The day,before his death, in 1997, Khenpo responded to young and old people of his entourage with great pleasure and without hurry he gave instructions on what is to be done in the future. The next day he ate very little, showed no signs of bodily sickness or fatigue. At noon, he laid on his right side, turned his head to the north and face to the west, reciting the six-syllable Mantra, Om mani padme hum, and died.
According to Father Tiso, his face immediately became youthful, smooth and pinkish all signs aging disappeared. A fragrance smell was not only around the body but outside the house. Above the house five colored rainbow lasted for days witness by many including monks and father Tiso. Father Tiso also reported the afternoon of the day of his death, just before dark, a light similar to that of sun rays was shining for a long time from the east.
His body remained under a cloth and each day it would get smaller and smaller. On the seventh day there was manifested the stainless rainbow body the viajar body..
Other reports regarding the rainbow body state 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.
Father Tiso discusses his research and investigation known as the Rainbow Body that Tibetan Buddhist have known for years. Some believe these stories reflect upon the resurrection of Jesus Christ.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 with ample proof that it exists now and in ancient times.
Early Christianity spoke of a Divine spark within each of us and Jesus said we are from the light. In the Gospel of Thomas (50) Jesus said, “If they say to you, ‘Where did you come from?’, say to them, ‘We came from the light, the place where the light came into being on its own accord and established itself and became manifest through their image.’ If they say to you, ‘Is it you?’, say, ‘We are its children, we are the elect of the living father.’ If they ask you, ‘What is the sign of your father in you?’, say to them, ‘It is movement and repose.'”
“Strange is our situation here upon this earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose.” Albert Einstein
The placebo effect has been proven. Our mind, our belief system, actually controls our pain and can heal many ailments we suffer. In short, the placebo effect relies on your body’s own chemicals, released in response to or in accordance with your mental or emotional expectations or beliefs. You have the ability to heal yourself, all you have to do is sincerely believe. engage and energize the power within. Our thoughts, emotions and actions have a huge impact on our lives more than any of us ever imagined. We live in the material world, not realizing the unseen forces of metaphysical world undetected by the five senses. Our unruly mind does not help. Most of us realize we are energetic beings who do not comprehend the power within. Much like newborn babies, we are just discovering there may be something much more to ourselves than just a physical body. Jesus even said ” Truly, truly, I tell You, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. He was telling us to believe and understand his true message and we could perform the same good deeds.
We have the ability but where do we start? Mystical and psychic abilities have been depressed and discouraged for centuries and most are reluctant to even discuss. We have been made to believe psychic ability was something from the dark ages, something negative.
Witches were burned at the stake for practicing so-called magic and of spells of invocation of spirits, all psychic abilities. Channeling, another psychic ability has been going on since biblical days. Parts of the Old Testament says kill the messenger and the New Testament says do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God. This list of psychic abilities have been attributed to real-world people and there are different types. World governments have been recruiting operatives with psychic abilities for years.
We all have some degree of psychic ability. One ability most have and may not realize it is knowing something and your not sure how you know; known as discernment. Call it instinct or intuition we have the ability if we pay attention. A psychic has the the ability to perceive information hidden from the normal senses through extrasensory perception (ESP). To me, it is the development of our third eye, our sixth sense. The sixth sense is the 6th Chakra of the 7 energy centers, running from the base of our spine to the top of our head. Another message Jesus left us was he said “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your vision is clear, your whole body will be full of light.” Light is energy and once your vision is clear, you understand the power within, the kind that can heal not only yourself but others.
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.
Other research also suggests meditation may physically change the brain and body and could potentially help to improve many health problems and promote healthy behaviors. Science has established 12 science-based benefits of meditation that can be easily obtains with daily practice.
Buddha said “Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
We all have the potential to heal ourselves and develop our God-given abilities. With positive and loving thoughts, emotions and actions, we create our reality. Daily meditation provides wisdom. A great start to understanding our true selves.
Changing old habits that do not serves us in our endeavor is probably the most difficult task to overcome, so one should begin gradually. This is about transformation, changing bad habits that have been ingrained for years into beneficial ones. Your thoughts, emotions and actions create your reality. Media can be your friend or foe, so you should realize what you watch or read, affects you. Adding more positivity in your life is a plus. Qigong, yoga, Tai Chi exercises may increase your positive energy and your overall well-being.
A daily meditation practice is probably the single most important aspect of any spiritual journey. It is just you and One Infinite Intelligence or God. Daily meditation turns your attention away from distracting thoughts and unhealthy habits and focuses on the present moment, the power within each of us, that divine spark.
Healing is not just about the body, but the mind and spirit. It about our connection to God and how to make positive life changes in order to connect. It is a journey, and as humans we make mistakes. We simply learn and find our way back to our path. Eventually you will look back and be glad you took that first step. With wisdom and compassion, we love others unconditionally, be of service to others, nurture and care for all of nature and becoming one with our Infinite Creator, developing that true power within.
The Kundalini life force has been known as eastern concept for centuries and just beginning to be of interest in the west. Every human being has the ability to awaken our divine Kundalini, that lays dormant at the base of our spine until it is aroused. It is depicted as the rising serpent. Most people never feel it and never know it is there. There may be a brief flash of light, lasting only a few seconds or longer or it could last for minutes, even hours. In a very few people, perhaps one in one thousand, this energy becomes aroused, and activated. This can be a positive event or it can be unsettling and disruptive, depending on whether you intended to aroused your kundalini or by accident.
It is an important concept to grasp that human body has and generates energy. The body has sophisticated network of energy pathways, known as meridians. The seven spiritual Chakras, known as energy centers are located from the base of our spine to the top of our head, following the spine. Edgar Cayce correlated these seven spiritual centers with the many “sevens” in the biblical book of revelations and with the seven endocrine glands in the body.
The base of the spine is the lower or negative pole of the energy field. During meditation and if the kundalini is activated, it flows through the meridians pathways, drawing universal energy into itself and move upward to be met and react to the positive spiraling energy moving downward called kundalini awakening. When we are conscience of this pathway, we can identify where our energy is and where it can go, not just physically, but spiritually. During kundalini awakening, your vibratory level changes significantly. Your awareness alters, your vibration increases, and you literally see things from a state of higher consciousness. During intense rising experiences, people can become aware of psychic phenomena outside the limits of their normal awareness. For example, people who do not normally have psychic abilities may have spiritual visions. Perhaps that is why the human body is the considered sacred, it contains our divine spark, our essence, as we wander through this confusing and distorted world.
It interesting how the medical symbol to your right, used by our medical profession is similar to the awaken Kundalini power symbol, coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine, ready to spring up to manifest itself through the chakras.
The bible refers to a story that Jesus took and applied it to Himself, John 3:14: “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up.”
Was Jesus referring to the serpent in a the Garden of Eden, the story of our descent of the life force of our soul into physical life, separating us from God and causing us to leave our companionship with our Creator in the garden. Moses raises this serpent up again and this act gives him power and eventually the ability to meet God on the Mount Sinai. Jesus raised the serpent energy to everlasting life, so does that mean each of us must raise our life force, to its rightful, original level of vibration and vitality. Is this how we are born again, to give birth to our spiritual self?
Perhaps now is the time for west and east concepts to come together for the betterment of all humanity.
Does the Bible teach us about reincarnation and meditation and the third eye? Before we explore these important questions, it is important to understand how the bible of today came into existence. In the second and third centuries, Christianity was very diverse and different groups of Christians had different beliefs including the Gnostics; they debated and argued the nature of God and how many gods there were; about who Jesus was, whether he was human, or divine of the soul, or something else; some believed knowledge of our true selves as the way, the world we live in, the nature and extent of the scriptures, and on and on with every conceivable concept . There were, in fact, so many different groups of early Christians that believed so many differ things, that scholars today prefer to speak not of early Christianity but of Early Christianities, encompassing a wide varieties of different beliefs.
Constantine the Great, also known as Constantine I, became Roman Emperor in 306 CE and ruled until 337 CE. Many of his soldiers converted to Christianity, and in 312 CE he converted to Christianity. According to a biography of Constantine written by Eusebius, Constantine was deeply disturbed on the eve of a significant battle and wonder how he could receive divine assistance for his military cause. Constantine claimed that the night before the battle he had a dream of the cross and was told in his dream that this was the sign that would give him victory. He went into battle and emerged victorious. There are doubts this was genuine because Constantine continued to worship other divinities, the god of the sun.
The Roman empire was vast and was fragmented culturally, politically and religiously. Emperor Constantine saw Christianity as a unify force. In 325 CE, Constantine called for a council of 318 bishops from around the world to resolve the question. In what sense was Jesus God. Arius’s supporters maintained that Jesus was a subordinate divinity the creation of God the father and came into being at some point in time. After much debate of the issues, the council decided against the views of Arius and his followers. All but 20 bishops agreed with the decision and after Constantine twisted their arms, 17 of those 20 signed on the Nicene Creed. That was the first of the seven ecumenical councils of the church, the last being the Second Council of Nicaea in 787. The debating and arguing was much like today in the United States Congress and probably in most governments around the world.
Before the 4th century, there is little or no evidence of all the biblical books appearing together in a single form. Instead the biblical writings are found individually in scrolls or codexes or in loose collections. Before the invention of printing in the 15th century, all productions was handwritten by scribes.
The theory of reincarnation is said to have been recorded in the Bible. But the proper interpretations were struck from it during an Ecumenical Council meeting of the Catholic Church in Constantinople sometime around 553 A.D.
There is a reference to reincarnation in Matthew 17:12, “But I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him whatever they wished. In the same way, the Son of Man will suffer at their hands.”
Meditation is mentioned in the old testament numerous times. One should considermeditation and prayer are one in the same.
The third eye is mentioned in Matthew 6:22 when Jesus said, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”
Jesus also said in Luke 8:17 “For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing concealed that will not be known and illuminated” and again in Luke 12:2 “There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed,or hidden that will not be made known” and also in Matthew 10:26 “So do not be afraid of them.For nothing is concealed that will not be uncovered, or hidden that will not be made known”.
Was Jesus message about ourselves hidden in ancient texts are being found around the world? Perhaps one such finding was in 1945, when thirteen ancient texts called “codices” were discovered in upper Egypt untouched by scribes. They were translated during the 1970’s and can be found in the The Nag Hammadi Library. Scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth were found, and label as Gnostic Gospels thought to be destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define “orthodoxy.”Edgar Cayce said the Gnostics were the highest form of Christianity. Is that why Scholars are now studying such text?
Perhaps we should not consider any one religion or concept, but all world teachings. Jesus taught the way of Love, Buddha taught the way of Meditation, many spiritual traditions the way of the third eye, and Chakras our energy centers, and the Law of One teaches unity, all providing a message and guidance from our Creator to find our way home.
We are all taking or final exam in life. I prefer not to put my fate in whether I pass or fail based on bickering and arguing men through the centuries. This is the time for enlightenment for those who are seeking. The world is at our fingertips for those who want to know the truth, simply use the gift of discernment.
I was asked which is more likely; the existence of aliens or the existence of God? To me the answer is obvious. It is one of the same.
We have been brainwashed into thinking religious systems have the answers to many unknown questions. Who are aliens, who are we and why are we here and of course, the God question. Going back to the beginning in Genesis, man was made in his image. Consider the image to be pure unknowable energy, universal love and light. Man in all his wisdom, decided that God, which is just a label for us to comprehend, must be a supreme being, that looks like us. For discussion purposes, let’s make a label transition from God to Infinite Intelligence.
Besides the control of the masses by religion, another problem is language. Based on what we know, it was a barrier created at the Tower of Babel. My dear friend Doctor Graves, PhD in Linguistics, and I have many discussions regarding language. He said we have to understand each person has an emotional connection to words and phrases, and they are different from person to person; languages do not map the same with words and grammatical associations and idioms and cultural connotations. It is easy to have misunderstandings, not only in our own language, but in world languages.
There is no argument the heart magnetic field can be measured several feet from the body. Our emotions create negative or positive energy affecting us and our world. The energy is known by many different names , spirit, soul, qi, chakras, prana, our life force, that I call our essence. It is who we are. This YouTube videoshould provide a new insight of our essence and our religion system today.
We live in a world where the physical and metaphysical worlds are inseparable. Our Essence never dies and our goal is to connect back to the source, Infinite Intelligence. Take religion out and look to the message. Jesus spoke of love, Buddha meditation, Lao Tzu the way, Krishna, energy centers, all to prepare us to understand our true power. According to the Law of One, we are energetic beings just beginning to understand the power within each of us. This is not about religion or belief systems, it about each of us being in the school of life. We like children in school and have to clear away all the clutter in our belief systems and learn anew. We have free-will to choose. If anyone wants to look for aliens and the definition of God, the Law of One is a good place to start.
Albert Einstein Quotes
My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.
