Power of Words by Doctor Tom Graves

Words have two meanings which are denotation and connotation. Denotation is the basic concept that a word points to in a speaker’s and listener’s minds. For example, house means a structure that people live in. Connotation is the individual’s emotional reaction to the word. ‘House’ means something emotionally different to a real estate agent powerof-wordscompared to a mortgage paying homeowner, which is somewhat different from that of someone who rents. A homeowner is more aware of maintenance of the property than the renter. Abstract words like ‘kindness’, ‘love’, ‘hunger’ also means something different depending on a person’s cultural upbringing and experiences in life. and it is the same for religious and spiritual references like ‘God ” and ‘church’ and even a word like ‘school’.

Words have emotional power, and can be used for both good and not-so-good reasons. Ephesian 4:29 says “Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” This is a spiritual matter. Is your speech positive and edifying or negative and destructive? There is really no such thing as “positive” criticism. This same information can be gently delivered as suggestions, if you deliver it with encouraging spiritual intent. It is better to avoid saying words-are-powerful-they-can-create-or-they-can-destroy-so-choose-your-words-wisely-quote-1critical things trying to get people to behave physically like you might think they should. Romans 14:17 says, “for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,” because being fair to others, getting along with them, and having fun are spiritually important, whereas trying to get people to adopt your veganism or political viewpoint only leads to discord and strife.

People do react negatively to words and phrases that belittle their beliefs. Another bad use of words is the news which continually harps on the bad things that happen. This is spiritually draining from the negative emotions that it produces in people. Then there are people who will use the Bible to criticize others. There is nothing spiritual about such a use of scripture. So it is better to monitor what you say and speak words that build up the positive emotions in other people. And you will benefit by helping to make the world a better place.

Our Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual  awakening is happening around the world and many do not even realize it.   Consider it a lifelong process, simply reconnection to the source,  God by many names. It is much like waking from a deep state of prolonged unconsciousness with our own unique experiences and perspectives   It’s a paradigm shift that reconfigures the way we experience everything. 71181731_970898559975447_6930337032434614272_n

The awakening may begin with the realization there is something greater, something more  than we could ever imagine.  The world is not as it seems and we live in two inseparable worlds, the metaphysical as well as the physical.  It may start with a mystical experience , a dream  or simply wanting to know the truth. There are so many aspects regarding the spiritual and human condition and seeking the truth can be an arduous and difficult journey,  often disturbing.   Humanity as a whole, have experienced indoctrination and programming  since birth.  Our culture, education, religion and political systems have conditioned us in our belief and thought processes.  People are drawn to  churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places to seek the truth. No religion or belief system has all the truth but all have some aspects of the truth. The awakening is to help us remember who we really are, why we are here because, we are distracted by the material world with confusion and distortions for so long.  

71543555_755100411596135_8828519226428882944_nJust in the last 100 years we had  two world wars, with estimated deaths from 78-103 million that ended in 1945. Add another 8-10  million for the Korean and Vietnam wars; not counting the countless other battles and conflicts  around the world.  Then we look at the casualties  of today’s societies around the world, unknowingly controlled by the corporations; owned by the few.  With 95 % of the world wealth, they certainly have the means to continue their  programming and indoctrination  programs with bio, geo and  hi-tech engineering.  

World wide, we are 7.7 billion strong, as our  positive and negative thoughts, emotions 72321039_3706910186001498_493345640407891968_nand actions  created the world we live in today.  The energy pulsating from our hearts  vibrates into world.  We have been divided by politics and  religion, with continuous messaging from the media.  We have been medicated and vaccinated by the pharmaceutical corporations, believing it will heal us, while unknowingly, we each have the ability to heal ourselves.  Our beliefs and intentions are very powerful and the proof is right before your eyes; the world we have today. We are the creators!   

Spiritual awakening is  a gradual and intentional process of seeking the truth. We begin to realize the divine power within; an energy that is manifested when connected to the source.    It flows throughout our  body through energy centers known as the seven Chakras; the  pineal gland  known by Ancient traditions as the third eye.   They knew of the pineal role in our spiritual development and communication with spiritual beings. Within Taoist self cultivation, the third eye, known as Ancestral Cavity, is located between and behind the eyes and serves as the cavity of profound and ancient knowledged and can be accessed through meditation and contemplation.

In Buddhism, the third eye refers to Eye of Consciousness, seeing the world beyond 72255048_756616391444537_8877545178601095168_nphysical eyes. In Hinduism the third eye is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge..

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.”

In the Law of One, the third eye, the indigo-ray or 6th chakra is our gateway to connect with Infinite Intelligence. In order to connect, we have to unblock our lower energy centers, by dealing with the negative and positive, thoughts and  emotions that has shaped our lives and freeing the pathways for the flow of energy.

The world outlook is dependent on each one of us. Each person is given a purpose by God, and the spiritual awakening  will help define  that purpose. It should be considered an honor.

Quotes-on-Truth-John2You can start simply by  consciously making God part of your day.  You are energy and, the best way to tap into our source is a quiet mind.  Prayer and meditation seem to be conflicting to many, but in actuality,  prayer is your communication with our source, God by many names,  and meditation is listening.

It is up to humanity to raise the collective  consciousness of the planet. Collective consciousness is our thoughts, emotions and actions which operates as a unifying force.  Whatever you think, feel and do is felt by everyone, creating not only your reality, but the world.   Our society as a whole is a culmination and reflection of our attitudes and how we display them internally and externally. Each one of us is playing a role in collectively creating our own reality as well as the reality of those around us.

We are a world community connected by the internet. Science is now proving what many already knew, meditation has powerful benefits.  It cannot only change the way we think, but we can learn of the power within as well. Meditation is about calming the mind, training yourself to think in a different way, connecting us to our metaphysical world.   Many scientists now believe the earth’s magnetic field and the human population work together to create either harmony or disharmony in our world. The earth has electromagnetic energy and every human heart generates electromagnetic energy  from our bodies to several feet away, according to our emotions.  It was reported from a scientific perspective, group meditation called “Maharishi Effect,” that this practice reduces crime. So much so that Merseyside, England, went from being the third highest recorded crime city  to the lowest ranked crime city in England, during the time of group meditation. Other cities around the world had similar effects when groups of people meditated at the same time each day. One was Washington DC, based on this report. When the group stopped meditating, the crime rate slowly increased.  In physics, that affect is referred to as unified field theory (UFT), waves of vibration flow from everything in the universe affecting the collective consciousness.

The new outlook of the world starts with you!!!!!

 

The Self

When we use the term, “the self” we are usually referring to our identity, the ego, the face we wear to maintain our illusion of individuality. This includes our subconscious 12043058_897901876964651_8829313765351631143_n.jpgmind and everything our brains produce that make us believe we are separate and apart from everything in the universe. So what is the Self?

Philosophers have pondered that question for centuries. Socrates, believed to be born in 470 BC, maintained that our true self is our soul.   Rene Descartes, born 1596, thought there is one thing of which we can be absolutely certain: “I think, therefore I am.”  William James, born 1842, added that there’s one thing about our conscious experience that we’re never uncertain about; we’re never uncertain whose conscious experience it is. It’s mine, of course. But who is this “me”?  Jean-Paul Sartre, born 1905, believed every individual to be a “being for itself that has a self consciousnesses. 

Western philosophers typically try to figure out the theoretical truth, going from there to 68395567_2628362577247376_4371379888091824128_npractical applications. Eastern philosophers tend to speak of truth as something you approach through practice rather than theory. In important ways, Eastern philosophy does not even ask the same question and offers a different answer. Hinduism, Buddhism, meditation, and yoga are alternative approaches. Self to them, refers to what lies within each of us and is what remains when our bodies dies. Self is what we discover when we wake up and is all that exists. Self in Hinduism is called Atman, and the self is Brahman or God. The difference between self and God is our distinction we make ourselves. Remove that distinction and all that remains is God, or universal mind or Tao.

Gnostics, believed to be the first true Christians, referred to Self as the Divine spark, and God as the Divine Light from which the spark emanated. Even Jesus tells us in Luke 17:20–21, the Kingdom is not coming in any way you can observe. The Kingdom of God is68447731_2628372797246354_7655717426310414336_n already here, within your midst.

The word philosophy means “love of wisdom”. It is a love of wisdom that guides all of us to explore the fundamental questions about where did we come from, why are we here and where are we going. The search to understand the self is an individual effort.  We are all philosophers, with our opinions, ideas and concepts. It is interesting to explore what others think and believe, but ultimately, we have to find our own way. With the world at our fingertips, we can explore and discover how different cultures, religions and belief systems are so intertwined.

Our teachers speak of the self. Jesus said in the Dialogue of the Savior, “Those who have truly found the self within recognized that it exists everywhere”.  Buddha tells us  10481390_779094098814404_8884657755310544376_n“Everyone has recognized the Self, one’s essential nature. But few realized it.”  Krishna said “Recognized that all things exist in the One, and you will become the One.” Lao Tzu provided his insight in the Tao Te Ching, Wisdom comes from knowing oneself. He who knows himself is enlightened.”

Consider the self as your divine essence, your soul, your spirit living in a material world.  To know the self, this four step exercise can be performed to produce an acceleration of knowing the self. The first step is the cornerstone.  The moment contains love as we consciously seek that love in our awareness and understanding in everything we do. The second step is to realize the universe is one being. When we see others, family,  friends, strangers, and even enemies, 300px-Loowe see the the Creator.  The third step is Gaze into a mirror, and see the Creator.  Fourth step is Gaze into the world and all of creation and see the Creator. You can build your foundation of these steps by being mindful and  through  meditation, contemplation, and prayer.

I am not I. I am this one walking beside me whom I do not see, whom at times I manage to visit, and whom at other times I forget; who remains calm and silent while I talk, and forgives, gently, when I hate, who walks where I am not, who will remain standing when I die.

Juan Ramón Jiménez, won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1956.

Are you a free spirit?

We are all spirits, with a body and mind living in a physical world.  We were born into this world, bound to what we have been taught but then something happens.  We  i-am-free-spirit-1-638want to know the truth and begin seeking.  The more we seek, the more free we become from the programing.

A free spirit chooses not to be bound or conform to the norms of society or their belief systems. They have a unique understanding about how our society and cultures have indoctrinated and programmed us since birth. A free spirit is seeking the truth, in their own way and their own time.

Jesus was a free spirit. He did not belong to any group and he certainly did not conform to any  belief system. His message was of love and enlightenment.

Another free spirit, Buddha was a prince that could have been king. He left the comforts of a palace life to seek enlightenment for the next 7 years. .

 A modern day free spirit is Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, a former atheist. He did  coolnsmart-16361groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology; radically changing 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. Dr. Bruce Lipton delivers one of the most important messages you will ever hear in this video. 

Free spirits pave the way so others may follow. With love and compassion they serve humanity. Free spirits look within to know their true-selves. We are all spirits, but only those that choose to set themselves free are truly free spirits.

Defining Spirituality

Spirituality is much like a newborn baby. First, we learn to sit up, then crawl, stand, walk, run, and talk. Becoming increasingly aware of our thoughts, emotions and actions are part of our spiritual evolution. The spiritual evolution for each person is unique. Each of us are a piece to a very large puzzle, each fitting together to form the big picture; we are one. If we were all alike, the pieces would not fit.

The more we think we know, the more we realize what we don’t know.  Our Eastern Masters tell us only our lack of desire for the truth concerning the cause of our suffering and conflict and how to eliminate that cause from the mind, keeps us from it.  Those who know the way, point directly to the truth of the matter and do so namelessly.

Life is a  journey and it is yours alone to discover your path. It is not about a religion, a belief system or philosophy. It is about you and knowing the power within.  Loving oneself and others, caring about our planet, helping others, knowing we are all One, and conscious attempts to honor and love this Oneness is defining Spirituality.

It is said the  enlightened one  knows  of human suffering and conflict, to know its cause, and how to eliminate that cause from the mind.    The “perfect” mind is perfectly indifferent, being neither for nor against. This mind is neither proud nor humble, pure or impure. The “perfect” mind has nothing to gain, nothing to lose, needs nothing added, nothing subtracted.  In reality, not a thing is more or less than perfect. Each day is a new day, a new beginning. Spiritually is not a life of asceticism or apartness, but a life and light of unity ,  to explore life fully.

Only you can define your spirituality.  The  only  limits or boundaries are the ones you place on yourself.  Make personal time daily  and through meditation, contemplation,  prayer and being mindful during the day can be helpful in connecting  and understanding ourselves and the Divine.

Buddha said, “The past does not exist. The future does not exist. One should concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

I Shall Give You What Has Never Occurred in the Human Mind

In saying 17 of the Gospel of Thomas,  Jesus said, “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.”  

Can you imagine Jesus’ disciples trying to understand what he was saying.    Even today one has to understand the estortic meaning and contemplate the verse.  A similar verse is found in  Isaiah 64:4 .    He proclaims, “Since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. “

Isaiah was a Hebrew prophet who was believed to have lived about 700 years before the birth of Jesus.  Born in Jerusalem, Israel, he was said to have found his calling as a prophet when he saw a vision in the year of King Uzziah’s death. It is said Isaiah prophesied the coming of the Messiah Jesus Christ.

You will also find a similar verse  in  1 Corinthians 2:9  “However, as it is written: What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived — the things God has prepared for those who love him.”  Did Paul take the saying from Jesus or from Isaiah?     We will never know.  

Consider Jesus’ message in saying 17  as a spiritual message suggesting the world is not as it seems. There is  another world  in our midst.  A spiritual world that cannot be detected with our five senses;  it is available to us now while we are alive; we no longer have to wait until death.  The path is love,  seek the truth, and know yourself. In saying 5,   Jesus said  “Know what is before your face, and what is hidden from you will be revealed to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor anything buried which will not be raised up!”

We all possess the Christ Consciousness within. Jesus’ message tells us how we all could tap  into divinity.  No one can describe or even comprehend Christ Consciousness. Jesus’ metaphors and parables  are providing the way, not just in the Gospel of Thomas but also verses that can be found in the New Testament and Gnostic literature, the Koran and Eastern Mystics and other texts around the world.   Our purpose is to evolve spiritually and to seek the divine  within ourselves and then we will know God.

 ” I have stilled my restless mind, and my heart is radiant: for in
Thatness I have seen beyond That-ness. In company I have seen
the Comrade Himself. Living in bondage, I have set myself free: I have broken away from the clutch of all narrowness.
I have attained the unattainable, and my heart is
coloured with the colour of love.”   Kabir  Mystic Philosopher

Consider Jesus’ saying 17 is to tell us that he has a secret, so perhaps we will seek to know the secret.  Would we have even known of the 114 secret sayings if not for the discovery of Gospel of Thomas and other text in 1945.  At at time when the world was beginning its transition into the largest world population, nearly 7.7 billion, and for those that follow numerology,  those numbers may mean something.  From a metaphysical standpoint,  and according to the Law of One,  we live and a multidimensional universe. We are the third density out of  seven densities,  under a veil so we cannot see.

In session  73.13  of the Law of One, “Questioner: What was the orientation with respect to this type of communication for the one known as Jesus of Nazareth?

Ra: I am Ra. You may have read some of this entity’s workings. It offered itself as teacher to those mind/body/spirit complexes which gathered to hear and even then spoke as through a veil so as to leave room for those not wishing to hear. When this entity was asked to heal, it oft times did so, always ending the working with two admonitions: firstly, that the entity healed had been healed by its faith, that is, its ability to allow and accept changes through the violet ray into the gateway of intelligent energy; secondly, saying always, “Tell no one.” These are the workings which attempt a maximal quality of free will while maintaining fidelity to the positive purity of the working. “

Perhaps the Discovery of the Gospel of Thomas, 114 the  secret sayings of Jesus should be considered the second coming of Christ, his true message.  But we can only image.  This is a beautiful song from the original Movie soundtrack.

I felt Jesus’ message  in saying 17  would be a good way to end this year.  I would like to thank all those who subscribed  and  follow Inspiration. 2019 will be another year of challenges for each of us but, the biggest challenge is knowing ourselves. Meditation is a great start, if only for a few minutes a day; a time simply for yourself.  Meditation is the gateway and no one can do it for you but you. Remember assistance is available, all you have to do is ask.   Just know what is in front of your face and you will see what is hidden.

Imagine 7.7 billion people radiating love, and how the positive vibrations would change our world.  May all of us bring love and compassion into 2019. Happy New Year everyone!!!

Jesus Secret Sayings, 9-16

In the last posting we discussed how the Christian Gnostics had some of the same spiritual concepts as Buddha, Lao Tzu and Kristna. You also may be surprised  how closely related Jesus’  teachings are to the eastern mystics traditions. The traditionsb2f79f613c6c6aaa3912be59c692ca8d are a spiritual way of life that includes developing respect, trust, and love for all and discovering our full potential as true human beings.  All spiritual concepts ask us to look within ourselves to find answers. The answers are in plain site, as  Jesus tells us in various parables.   “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.” (Saying 5)

Perhaps it is time to listen to our higher self.   We all have deep seeded belief systems, affecting our understanding of not only Jesus’ parables and metaphors, but our understanding of God. Many have been engrained with orthodox Christians sources. Today we have the world at our fingertips to help us understand  Jesus true teaching to help us find our way back home.   The Gospel of Thomas provides new insight into the true teachings of Jesus. This 12 minute video provides an overview of the Gospel of Thomas.

Last time we discussed verses 1 through 8, Jesus’ message was to seek the truth, look within ourselves to find the kingdom. Many believed Jesus died for our sins.  Perhaps one should consider he died so we could see the light and to follow his message and be like him; pure love and light. This is up to each one of us to contemplate and decide for ourselves.  Now let’s discuss verses 9 through 16.

seed-sprouting(9) Jesus said, “Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up. Others fell on the rock, they did not take root in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate them. And others fell on the good soil and it produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure.”

There are comparable sayings in Matthew 13:3-9, Mark 4:2-9 ,  Luke 8: 4-8  and Luke 8:13 .  Each time the author has added their interpretation of the seed parable as found in the Gospel of Thomas.  Similar stories are also found in the Sirach 6:19.

Meditation-quotes-Paramahamsa-YoganandaThe seed parable describes  the divine seed God planted within each of us. In order to grow, one should find their way by seeking the truth, being caution of the pitfalls of life and false teachings that produce no fruit.    Those who discover the truth, will begin to sprout and grow.  The more you cultivate the divine seed with a fertile foundation,  the more abundant your  love and light grows. The illuminating light and love affects those around you, doubling in measure.

Jesus said, ” The truth will set you free.”

(10) Jesus said, “I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.”

In a similar parable,  Verse (16),  Jesus said, “Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to cast upon the world. They do not know that it is dissension which I have 20251920-put-the-world-on-firecome to cast upon the earth: fire, sword, and war. For there will be five in a house: three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand solitary.  Comparable sayings in  Luke 12:49  , and Matthew 10:34-36,

Most would agree  Jesus message has cast fire on the world.  He is  known throughout the world as either a spiritual leader, messiah, divine prophet,  Jewish preacher, religious leader, son of man, son of God and even God. Was Jesus’ message  love and enlightenment or  sin and repentance as the Orthodox view  teaches? That difference has divided many,  including religions and families.  We have been indoctrinated since birth with the orthodox view.  The  Muslims and Christians seem to stay in conflict,  both believe in Jesus but in different roles.  All  those in conflict believe they are right.  In the end,  each will stand alone.

(11) Jesus said, “This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. In the days when you consumed what is download (30)dead, you made it what is alive. When you come to dwell in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one you became two. But when you become two, what will you  do?”

Comparable saying Matthew 24:35  Mark 13:31 Luke 21:33 Matthew 5:18 and  Luke 16:17.

All of reality as we realize it, is an illusion and will pass.  Even the illusion of birth and death will be realized as such. Everything is in flux, ever changing to a higher state of reincarnation (1)consciousness.  We pass through periods of incarnation, eventually returning to the spirit world of light. To learn our lessons we must  become two to be able to come into this world of illusion, with all the confusion and distortions. When we consume what is dead, we make alive. We are all here to learn our lessons plus the ways of love and wisdom  and must return to the positive polarity to return  to the One. We are here now as two, so what will you do in this material world to return to the one.

(12) The disciples said to Jesus, “We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?”
Jesus said to them, “Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.”  Comparable saying can be found in  Luke 9:46-48Luke 22:24-27Matt 18:1-4, and  Mark 9:33-35.  It is interesting to note,  Jesus mentions no names in those parables.

James was the brother of Jesus, and the leader of the Church in Jerusalem until his death godsaystrustmein 62 CE. There are five books of James in the New testament. Also discovered later was  The Secret Book of James and The Apocryphon of James. James did not drink wine or eat meat or cut his hair.  He was found kneeling and praying to the point his knees were like a camels because he was alway kneeling. He was an extraordinary character and righteous.  In the Secret Book of James, he presents himself as the person who sends the other followers of Jesus on their missions. Today, Christianity has followed more of Paul’s teaching, Many biblical scholars and lay Christians have noted that Jesus preached almost exclusively about the kingdom of heaven, while Paul highlighted justification by faith—and not vice versa. Some conclude that they preached two different gospels. Others argue that really they both preached justification; still others say it’s all about the kingdom.  The true teacher is within each of us, our higher selves.

(13) Jesus said to his disciples, “Compare me to someone and tell me whom I am like.”
Simon Peter said to him, “You are like a righteous angel.”
Matthew said to him, “You are like a wise philosopher.”
Thomas said to him, “Master, my mouth is wholly incapable of saying whom you are download unitedlike.”

Jesus said, “I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring which I have measured out.”
And he took him and withdrew and told him three things. When Thomas returned to his companions, they asked him, “What did Jesus say to you?”
Thomas said to them, “If I tell you one of the things which he told me, you will pick up stones and throw them at me; a fire will come out of the stones and burn you up.”

Comparable sayings can be found in Matthew 16:13-23, Mark 8:27-33 and Luke 9:18-22. 

Consider after each answer, Jesus responded by telling them he was not their master and that they were drunken by his presence and their perceived idea of who he was. They looked upon Jesus as a being unlike themselves. When believing Jesus was more than he was, they were unable to see themselves as equals. When Jesus took Thomas aside, he said three things or words which could have been along the lines of,’ “We are equal.” “We are the from the light” or “we are all sons of God”. That would justify Thomas’ response to the others when asked what was said.

(14) Jesus said to them, “If you fast, you will give rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. connect to your higher selfWhen you go into any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick among them. For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth – it is that which will defile you.” Comparable says are  Luke 11:1-4, Luke 9:1-6, Luke 10:1-12,   and Matt 6:2-18, 

This one is probably more difficult than most because of the ways we have been taught since birth. Consider we all have a higher self, a divine spark within; a divinity from God. We are suppose to allow our higher self guide us because we have all the answers within. Like overindulgence with food, fastingimages (91) for too long also harms the body. We have the ability to heal when we seek the truth and  look within ourselves as Jesus said in saying 2 and 3. What we eat will not defile us but what comes out of our mouth will.

(15) Jesus said, “When you see one who was not born of woman, prostrate yourselves on your faces and worship him. That one is your father.  Comparable saying is John 10:30 

big_thumbNot born of a woman is our father. Again, Jesus is telling us we are all equal with Jesus.  When we worship other humans, there is division instead of uniting and finding our way home.  We are all divine beings of infinite worth and we are here to learn our lessons specific to us, and the ways of love and wisdom.

Each parable has many answers and within your own reflection you will find a greater answer than anyone else could give you.  Perhaps we should consider the Gospel of Thomas was used by the others to write the Books of the New testament. Next month we review the next group of the 114 secret sayings of Jesus.

 

The Power of Thought

Have you ever considered how we have created this great illusion with our  thoughts, emotions and actions. We are energetic beings and have unknowingly 10653328_10152758960998781_1168788790174634000_ncreated our own reality as well as those around us. Worldwide, there are over 7 billion of us, thinking, talking, emotional, acting and reacting, all generating positive and negative energy. To complicate the issue, as humans, we have  approximately  50,000-70,000 thoughts a day, most with unruly minds.

When a person thinks, speaks or acts negatively, or by gestures, criticizing, judging or controlling, energy is not sent only to the person intended, but into the world. The personal energy  affects everyone around even though they may not be consciously aware.  We all have experienced that moment when someone walks 558146-Buddha-Quote-Mind-is-everything-What-we-think-we-becomeinto our space smiling or crying, and how this affects the emotional  vibrations. Sporting events are a prime example of how emotions affect the masses.  A study in the Journal of Clinical Psychology studied the effects of worrying on performing a task. Thinking negatively about your problems not only doesn’t help solve anything, it actually makes it harder for you to think of a helpful solution.

On the other hand,  thinking positively generates energetic positive emotionsaffecting images negativeall of those around us and even the world.  Traditional views suggest experiences of positive emotions signal well-being and  guide positive behavior in the moment.  Positive emotions, although fleeting, have more long-lasting consequences. Positive emotions transform people for the better, providing a spiritual path for the future.

Mainstream and social media creates news, provoking thought, creating emotions  resulting in actions and reactions, fueling our monkey mind.  Energy  prevails everywhere,  in beings and objects including mother earth, creating our reality. The effects are not seen immediately, but can be defined as a garden, slowing growing and taking hold in whatever soil we have prepared.

b78b2c17eaa60aded0242c5923d3b9feBuddha said our lives are products of our mind. What we are today is a result of what we thought yesterday. What we think today influences what happens to us tomorrow. Our entire lives are products of our mind. 

Lao Tzu said the world is transformed by those who love all people, just as you love yourself. 

Jesus said in the Gospel of the Egyptians, You receive no benefit from loving only those who love you. Great benefits comes from loving those who hate you.   

Perhaps it is time to recognize we are a product of our society which we created.  Since we created it,  we are the only ones that can change it. We can begin our journey by being kind and loving. With love in your heart, be aware of your thoughts  and be of service to others in your own way.  This is your journey, along with 7 billion others, and it starts with love. Whatever you have in your heart you will become.

 

 

 

Sacred Geometry-A World Message For All to See

The world we live in today is not what it seems. Our perception has been one of manipulation and control.  We have been in a deep sleep and download (18) crop circles as we wake,  there is a  realization of our worlds of physical and metaphysical are inseparable. We begin to understand we are beings of infinite worth.  Perhaps it is time to consider theology, extraterrestrials, spirituality and universal laws are one. What are the messages left around the world for all to see?

Sacred Geometry  was traditionally restricted to the priesthood.  The general belief behind sacred download (18)geometry is that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportions are also found in music, light, and cosmology.  Now sacred Geometry is for all to see, but why aren’t we seeing it on mainstream media?

 Crop circles are sacred geometry left in fields of crops all over the world. It is a message to humanity. They appear to be created by what we know as orbs, a spherical light body. This video depicts two orbs creating a crop circle. Sacred geometry involves sacred universal patterns used in the design of everything in the universe and our world. Sacred architecture can be seen in religious and government religionsbuildings all over the world.  This value system is seen as widespread even in ancient times.

The basic laws of the universe may seem simple, but because our senses are limited, we can’t grasp them. There is a pattern in creation.  The patterns  are everywhere, pine cones, sunflowers, pineapples, and cacti, they all have a double spiral structure that will allow the smaller elements, such as seeds, to pack themselves closely and images (94)efficiently. If you look at the center of a sunflower you will see the seeds line up in crisscrossing spirals that radiate from the center. You can count the number of spirals turning in each direction, and these will always be Fibonacci numbers.    A tree outside whose roots search beneath the ground for water, or a flower which sends its sweet smell to the pollinating bees, or even our own bodies and  the power within  that drive us to act, we can see that we all dance to a mysterious tune. A melody of pure energy, Universal Infinite Intelligence, beyond our comprehension, encompassing all.

Just as children must learn to read, write, and speak a  language in order to function in the world,  we are at a stage of  spiritual evolution where we must learn to read, write, and speak the pattern language of creation. As children learn to read one letter at a time, so can we learn to read the “book download (20)of nature” one shape or pattern at a time. And as children learn to connect letters together to form meaning through words, sentences, and entire books, so can we learn to read how nature unites multiple patterns to create all beings, structures, and processes of the world.

Sacred geometry is found throughout the entire universe and can be seen everywhere in the natural world. Even our own bodies are made up of this mathematical equation which connects all living things in the universe.

images (99)It is  a universal language that describes the inner workings of nature and the intrinsic order of the universe. It is the natural sanction that unites all forms of life; from microbes, plants, animals and humans to the motions of the planets and universe.  It shows the quality of relatedness between unique and individual differences and demonstrates how diverse elements can be organized into a whole yet so much beyond our understanding.

Perhaps the message Jesus left us  in  Luke could provide insight:

No one lights a lamp and covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he sets it on a lampstand, so those who enter can see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing concealed that will not be known and illuminated. Pay attention, therefore, to how you listen. Whoever has will be given more, but whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.

or his hidden teachings in the Gospel of Thomas”Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”

Albert Einstein: A human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty.

Aliens or God and what about Us?

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 images (93)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 controlthey 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 video should 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. download (17)heart peace buddhaTake 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.
