Reality and Visualization

Is it contradictory to accept reality and yet visualize for a better world? The acceptance albert_einstein_quoteof reality is just that, accepting what is currently occurring, visualization is for what is to come.

We worry constantly about what is happening, what may or may not happen. It is prudent to our own psychological well being as well as our spiritual growth to accept our reality as it comes to fruition, as this acceptance can bring peace to our psyche. I believe when we begin to accept reality as it is, it actually empowers us to change the reality of our world. Rather than looking at anything negative that we believe is our reality, if we find the love in it – the silver lining, then our reality begins to change. Our reality serves as a catalyst for our spiritual growth to teach us the ways of unconditional love. When we accept our reality, we begin to understand our purpose and role in this life.

Visualization through meditation is the practice of seeing and listening through the heart.

It’s one of the paths of making the mind and heart one. Studies have found that the human mind does not distinguish the difference between our own experience and that of which we experience through our eyes or dreams. Therefore; simply watching a program or playing a video game in which our body begins to react to our thoughts, our mind believes we are actually experiencing the event. The saying is we become what we think, our thoughts can and do create our reality. Every thought is a form of energy, we send that energy out into the world and it begins to manifest. Visualizing positive thoughts through the heart makes a direct connection to the mind increasing the intensity of our thoughts, sending positive energy out into our world and universe.

Visualization however, requires more than just the act of love through the heart and sight through the mind’s eye, it also requires a complete faith and trust of oneself.

 

 

Expanding and Experiencing Spirituality Through Intention

How much of an impact do our intentions have on us and our world?  Our lives are programmed from the first phase of birth, programmed to eat on a schedule, to sleep on a schedule, to work on a schedule.  We have become so accustomed to being programmed we even program ourselves.  We create an intense catalog mentally of our responses to specific stimuli, in return when experienced again our subconscious takes over and goes into autopilot.  Reacting and/or responding to our repeat of the same experience.  What happens when we stop ourselves and actually think through the intention of the outcome rather than the outcome itself?  Are we truly living life or merely trying to survive it?   Ask yourself,  how many times throughout my day do I just go through the motions, never giving a thought as to why I’m taking the action.

Does that mean if I respond the same way each time to a specific comment or action, I’m acting from pre-programming?  No, not necessarily.  Let’s take for instance a loved one saying I love you,  normally a typical response is to confirm you love them as well.  Now ask yourself, when you say it do you just say the words or do you actually wish to convey to the person the actually feeling of love you feel in your heart.  Your answer is not only indicative of your self programming but also of your spiritual well being.

When we go through the motions without intentions, we rob ourselves of the emotions, placeborewards and growth the action alone fails to garner.  How do completely benign thoughts and actions fill and affect our world?  Studies regarding placebos indicate that when we believe we are taking medication that helps us the outcome can be a measured positive response. When we take a placebo our intention is to heal, and we tell our bodies such and it makes it so.  Therefore our intentions not only affect our emotional state so that we actually experience the moment, we find that intention also affects our physical bodies as well.

 

The New York Times Bestseller, The Hidden Messages in Water, documents the extraordinary life work of Dr. Emoto regarding the impact of human thoughts, emotions and intentions on water crystallizationThe study had a profound impact on our understanding of the effect of our thoughts and intentions on the world around us.  The study showed beautiful and intricate crystals formed when positive intentions and thoughts were impressed upon the glass of water, when negative thoughts and intentions were impressed upon the same water the crystals were dark and ill formed, if formed at all. 

Our intention adds the abstract layer of a focused outcome, one in which we not only create the thought or action but do so with a mindfulness making us fully aware of the moment.  In doing so we not only capture the emotional impact of the moment but we expand our spirituality with the acknowledgement of the connection between our heart and minds.  Studies already prove that human consciousness has more to do with our reality than human intelligence.  Want a better day?  Want a better life? Want a better world? Our intentions can and do impact the physical world around us,  how much can we change ours by living in the moment, by acting and thinking with positive intention?

 

 

 

Stumbling in the Silence

 

busymind2

Nirvana, enlightenment, Christ Consciousness, many words used to describe a state of higher consciousness a state of loving all.  Becoming one with all, stepping beyond our own human limits and rising to our spiritual level which has no boundaries.  Measly words created by man can barely describe that of which we know and understand,  trying to use those same words to describe that of which exists only in faith, only within ones self can never convey it to a level of understanding that will come on an intellectual level.  That however is where the fun begins.

theveil

It’s called the “veil”.  Such as the bride who hides behind the veil to only be exposed at the time of unity – the uniting of two to become one.  Same holds true with the “veil” that each of us live behind as a spiritual being living a human experience.  The “veil” only to be dropped when we have reached the unity of oneness with our One Creator.   When we reach the acceptance of Love, that it is not just what we do or how we feel, it is who we are.  Love is all, it’s oneness;  it is the very reason for our existence.

Spirituality has been described as that of which is revealed in the silence when looking within ones self to understand the true message given to mankind throughout the ages in sacred texts. Silence…., who hears anything in the silence, isn’t that in itself contradictory?  Silence is defined as having no audible sound, to hear nothing according to the dictionary.

silence

Therein lies the challenge, how does one find the silence within?  There’s so much noise today, not just on the outside but within us.  We worry about finances, love, family, health,  politics, we worry about worrying.  Our minds don’t stop long enough to hear silence, we  are constantly thinking about whats next, family, friends, chores, trips,  health and life.  Most of us can’t even hear ourselves speak.

In Greek during biblical days, the word silence meant to keep peace.  Therefore; when one keeps peace within themselves – within the silence, the truth is revealed. Much like the varying definitions of the word silence, each of us will also have varying definitions as it applies to us.  Silence doesn’t always mean a clear, empty mind, sometimes it may just be observed as a peacefulness within.  There is no right or wrong way to reflect upon ones own image, peeling back the layers of what we not only hide from others but hide from ourselves.

peacewithin

The search within is a catalyst for most, if not all along the spiritual path.  Searching and listening for the silence, waiting for that noticeable change within.  The change begins the minute we opt to pursue the path of spirituality, the minute our mind accepts things aren’t as they seem.  We notice subtle changes in our thought process.  However; for some this is the point that seems to lead to frustration, and for some a hesitation to continue along the path.  A feeling of inferiority, a feeling of failure, these feelings are normal, they are a part of the path.  That is the voice we hear in the silence, its not telling us to condemn and judge ourselves its showing us the areas we must focus on and bring into balance.  We all struggle and stumble within the silence.  Struggle to understand the message, and stumbling by judging our self.   The silence can become stronger when we have no level of expectation, but simply an acceptance and love for our self.  Loving and accepting of ones self is the ultimate catalyst for spiritual growth, without the love of our self how do we love our neighbors as our self?

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.

Tribe of One

My friend Tom and I keep having a discussion about people and tribalism. Tom has his PHD in Linguistics so he has some knowledge about people, language and its structure.  He insist68404423_2368486500103991_6739274845336371200_n that it is most people’s’ instinct to belong to a tribe. In the past, the Native Americans lived in tribes and for the most part still do. It is said Jesus belonged to the tribe of Judah. Others go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, and mosques. We have families and jobs so that could also be considered tribal.

So I started to ask myself what is a tribe. I really do not have one, other than family and friends. But, then as I was writing this, I started thinking about you. Is spirituality tribal? What does tribal mean?  In the Biblical sense, which was the original one in English, the Latin word translates Greek phyle “race or tribe of men, body of men united by ties of blood and descent, a clan”. Tribal in Latin can be interpreted as Generalis which means general, universal, tribal.  Isn’t humanity a tribe united by body, mind and spirit?  In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said, “If they say to you, ‘Where have you come from?’ say to them, ‘We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established [itself], and appeared in their image.’ We are all part of  Infinite Intelligence and we are spiritual, so perhaps we could call it the Tribe of One.   

Consider humanity as a tribe formed long ago with the potential of over  7 billion wisdom-quotes-kindnesscompassioncharitytruth-and-lovepotential members.  Individually they have created their own reality by their thoughts, emotions and actions but collectively, have unknowingly created our world. The Tribe of One requirements would simply be you have to be awake.  Everyone is included, regardless of race or beliefs. The initiation is to know your true-self, be of service to others while learning the ways of love and wisdom. 

As member of the Tribe of One, I find it liberating to break away from the status quo and bring collaboration and community into the world with no dogmas or doctrines.  Love is the divine power.  The Tribe of One purpose to spread and share love, compassion, gratitude, 67636273_2369209166503744_6291097606453985280_nappreciation and be of  service to others. It is not about judging,  condemning  or controlling others by instilling negative beliefs such as “burning in hell” “sin and repentance” ; even if you don’t believe or belong to the same group, as I do.

Divine Universal Infinite Intelligence radiating pure energy of love is our source. Within each of us is that divine spark or light waiting to be awaken. The spiritual path is unique for each person. The Law of One is a wonderful guide that has very deep spiritual teachings and has been said to be one of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus. Each tribal member is responsible for their own initiation by whatever means they deem appropriate.

We have been given special gifts to discover and apply them in our world today. Our job is to positively raise the planet vibration by applying these seven steps in our daily lives.

b9130b54e7d521fa35dea495cb539e7f (1)1. Love Infinite Intelligence

2. Love yourself

3. Love others as you love yourself

4. Love mother earth and nature.

5. Be of Service to others in your own way.

6. Meditation/Contemplation and pray to further your understanding and connection to the Infinite Intelligence.

7. Realize we are co-creators, and we create our lives with our thoughts, emotions and actions.

Know yourself, accept yourself and realize we are all one tribe with Infinite Intelligence. Our Journey will be different paths, different understandings but the progression is one. Our job is simple, to be the light, to spread love and compassion wherever we go.  This short video provides some amazing facts about the human body.  Hope you enjoy and welcome to the Tribe of One.

Connection to Our Source

Connection to our source means a lifelong journey of seeking the truth and blind-leading-the-blinddiscovering who we are.  Many go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places of worship to seek the truth. The realization is all religions have some truth, but no religion  has all the truth.  If blindly followed, religion will simply put you in a box;  providing their teachings, belief systems and rituals.  Religion may contain hidden truths,  a higher truth that can be used as stepping stones for our spiritual journey .   Perhaps that is why people are leaving religion, because they want to know the truth, they want to know God.  

give-yourself-permission-to-walk-away-from-anything-that-gives-2353180Being controlled by a particular belief system or religion appears to be negative energy. “Thou shall not” found in the 10 commandments in the Book of Exodus is dictating what we should or should not do.   If humanity is inherently good, why do we have to be told not to kill or steal, doesn’t that take away our free will?  There are even questions where did the Old Testament originated? We’ve all heard of the flood story in Genesis 6-8 and scholars believe that story was taken from  the Gilgamesh Epic, the great literary classic of ancient Mesopotamia.  There are many contradictions and questions regarding the content of the  Old Testament, much like the New Testament.

English translations of the bible began in the Middle ages and there were two efforts  where the Church insisted only using their translations.

John Wycliffe, 1320-1384, translated the Bible into english but the Church condemned him for this action and ordered his books be burned.

William Tyndale, 1484-1536, also translated the Bible into english. He was particularly disturbed by the fact that the common man was unable to read the Bible for himself.   He was also condemned as a heretic, both by the Catholic Church and the newly established Church of England. Tyndale was forced to leave England for Germany, but eventually authorities caught up with him and he was burned at the stake in Belgium.

Our connection to God,  the source, divine matrix or Infinite Intelligence, and many 0a9b9a69447b265abd17d51c39eabe50other descriptive names,  is something most strive to understand and define.  Personally, God is pure divine energy,  love being the dominant source of vibration.  The vibration that we are here to learn and balance with wisdom. Each of us are a spark of pure divine energy.  As we learn how our thoughts, emotions and actions are part of our grand spiritual evolution, we are creating the world around us.  Within each of us, exist a higher power waiting to be awakened.  We all have the divine gift of discernment,  the act or process of exhibiting keen insight and good judgment.  In its broadest sense, discernment is closely related to wisdom as an expression of God. Discernment alone can bring about a sense of balance between the worldly and the spiritual. 

 If only the world lived by one simple message our teachers were trying to tell us, we divine-love-quotes-8-17-best-images-about-love-on-pinterestcould change our world. Jesus told us to  “Love your neighbor as yourself.” The Buddha said, ” the only way you can become free is to love those who hate you”.  Krishna said, “to me, all beings are the same. I hate none, and no one is more dear to me than another,  and The Taoist Sage Lao Tzu said, “Nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself”. By honoring and respecting others’ beliefs and religions,  not only will it bring us closer together, but closer to our Creator. 

With each new day, you can be the light of the world. Look within and know you are that divine spark waiting to be awakened.  Realize you have God given gifts and can learn to master them.  Above all,  6bbbfcbd9acce4ee927fffa96fae17ccbelieve in yourself and your relationship with God through meditation, contemplation, prayer and being mindful during the day.  Connecting and understanding ourselves and the Divine is a lifelong process with many obstacles. With love and compassion, believe in yourself and your ability to know and learn the truth.

 

 

 

 

Death and the After life

Death and the after-life is something we will all face eventually.   Our limited understanding is guided by oursivananda-33019 belief system;   what we subconsciously learned and consciously taught.  It is the school of life, with countless confusion and distortions with so many belief systems and religions.   It may be as simple as to what you believe will be your reality. 

Death is the release of our life force in order to continue our spirit journey.  The ancient chinese described qi as “life force”,  Hindu called it  prana, Christians and Jews refer to it as the soul and the Muslims call it Rūḥ, our immortal self. Gnostics called it the divine spark;   spirit, essense and the list goes on.

Our life force is who we are, energy within our bodies, feeling all the aches and pains as we age, physically and emotionally.  We are trying to understand our purpose.  We learn and practice tai chi, chi gong, yoga, walk, jog and meditate to cultivate our life force just to face the daily challenges and BxGKxMSIIAA6IXMchoices. We look around and wonder if this it, why are we here!  Based on the Law of One our purpose is to learn the ways of love with wisdom, and each of us have our own special lessons to learn.  At the end of our life we have a “life review”. If you attained 51 percent positive, you will leave 3rd density and advance to the the 4th density. Seven densities , realms, dimensions or heavens are terms used in religious and mythology ancient texts.  

If you do not make the 51 percent positive then you will have to redo 3rd density.  Your reincarnation   can be anywhere in the universe.   Even  Emanuel Swedenborg, the  eighteenth-century mystic and spiritual explorer, spoke of the purpose of death.  He inspired some the world’s greatest minds and souls like Helen Keller, D.T. Suzuki, and Ralph Waldo Emerson,to name a few.

Law of One also provides insight on death which states, ” the process of the physical 1309-choose-to-see-death-spiritual-quotes-to-live-bydeath is as we have described before: one in which there is aid available and the only need at death is the releasing of that entity from its body by those around it and the praising of the process by those who grieve. By these means may the mind/body/spirit which has experienced physical death be aided, not by the various perceptions of careful and repeated rituals.” 

Near Death experiences  (NDE)  also provides insight and some sort of understanding of the afterlife.   People that have experienced NDE sometimes describe a floating maxresdefault (6)sense of freedom from pain and of complete wellbeing;  or they had unusual abilities, such as being able to see walls and also see through them, and being able to “hear” the unspoken thoughts of the people nearby;  They sometime say they experienced a “life review” while at the same time, they re-viewed, and experienced being on the receiving end of, all their actions throughout life; Some went beyond the light, seeing cities of light and knowledge. When they chose to return, it was because of a love connection with one or more living people. The other half say they didn’t choose to return: They either were told or made to return, or they were just suddenly “back” in their bodies. 

Physical death releases our life force; our final escape from this realm.   It is  interesting to 16cc381c8b27c7abd1b7cbf79c39a86cnote how emotions around us  affect even the death process. Our thoughts, emotions and actions create our reality not only in this world but also the next. Many seek gnosis,  the knowledge of spiritual mysteries,  to better understand our situation. Esoteric knowledge of spiritual truth was held by the ancient Jews, Christians and Greeks.  They believed it was  essential to salvation.

What stands out for me to be essential is the emotion of love, the emotion that conquers all things.  Also our intentions regarding our thoughts, emotions and actions.  If we fear death, a negative emotion, then death may be exactly that.  That is why we are here to learn about love and the wisdom to use it.

Our ancient teachers had much wisdom to say about death and immorality.

Jesus said in the Apocryphon of John, “I am returning to the place for which I came, If you wish to follow me, you may. But you will not enter the Kingdom until you have perfected yourselves.”  
Krishna said in the Bhagavad Gita, ” When the self leaves the body it will go whatever the attention is focused on the time of death. Therefore remember me at all times. When your mind absorbed in Me you will come to Me”
Lao Tzu said in the Tao Te Ching, ” Those who are not attached to life will not fear death. They are more fortunate than those who give life too much meaning. “
“One who has lived wisely does not fear death.”  The Buddha

Being more positive than negative with your thoughts, emotions and actions; being aware of your intention regarding your thoughts, emotions and actions;  do not get attached to the material world; and live your life with wisdom; all teachings from our Masters to not only assist us with our life journey, but our impending death and afterlife.  

The Science and Spirituality Connection

We live in a time with so much information; from the discoveries of the Codices from the Nag Hammadi Library discovered in 1945 , the Dead Sea Scrolls, discovered in 1946, and  the Law of One in 1981; just to name a few. Now science is confirming what the ancient Scrolls and Codices  texts, Buddha, and many other ancient texts.   According to science we live in an energy field, a mental and spiritual  Universe,  with our thoughts and emotions creating our reality , with love being  the absolute.

Bruce H. Lipton, PhD,  is a  former medical school professor and research scientist and author of ” The Biology of Belief. ”  It is groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology. The implications of this 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 and international lecturer,  author, and educator has been invited to speak in more than 33 countries on six continents. Dr Dispenza healed himself after breaking 6 vertebrae in his back and being told he would never walk again. Through meditation, visualizations and his belief system, after  nine and a half weeks after the accident, he got up and walked, without having any body cast or any surgeries.

Gregg Braden is a spiritual pioneer, and his discoveries provides much insight in connecting the lost secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls with today’s  beliefs  how our thoughts and emotions can change our world. The ancient Mode of Prayer   involves thoughts and emotions that has no words or outward expression. You think and visualize your prayer has already been answered.  He learned from the Dead Sea Scrolls that the Essenes teachers taught the role of thought and feeling is the prayer.

Science has now concluded and confirmed the same message as Jesus and Buddha, to know yourself. For followers of  Emanuel Swedenborg,  Dr. Jonathan Rose responds to a viewer question about the most effective method of prayer. And again the answer points to a person’s thoughts and way of life rather than outer ritual.

Science has studied interactions of electric and magnetic fields  in our bodies. They have discovered our bodies generate an electromagnetic field several feet  from our body.  Our  beating heart, breathing and thinking involve physiological and mental activity creates our electromagnetic field.  We have lost sight of the relationship between ourselves, our thoughts, feelings and emotions  and the energy field or the spirit. Scholars believe many ancient and sacred texts were omitted from the Bible in the 4th century, including the texts of the Nag Hammadi Library and The Dead Sea Scrolls. 

The spirit could be defined as the Holy Spirit, encompassing all of us all the time, providing a connection to God or Infinite Intelligence. Jesus said in saying 48 in Gospel of Thomas , omitted from the Bible, “If two make peace with each other in this one house, they will say to the mountain, ‘Move Away,’ and it will move away.” The two being thought and emotion in the body.  He also said in saying (70), “That which you have will save you if you bring it forth from yourselves. That which you do not have within you will destroy kill you if you do not have it within you.”

We are just beginning to understand the power within. The world is at our fingertips to explore and seek the truth.  Our thoughts,  emotions and actions are the power system that drives us forward in the energy field,  each and everyday.  The energy field is guided by  the  thoughts,  emotions and actions of   7.7 billion people living on the planet.

We are positively changing our world  by providing the energy field with  loving and compassionate thoughts.  Are you doing your part?

Love, Sex and Spirituality

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 This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 46505780_1980974068616481_480245586428166144_n-300x241.jpgunquenchable 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.”  

 

Know Yourself

Religion teaches us rituals, tradition and belief systems. Have they misinterpreted the message regarding  looking within yourself to find God by not teaching the concept?  In Luke 17:21 Jesus said “nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”  There are many interpretations of that one verse.

To know yourself may seem simple, but do we really know ourselves.  Our lives are connected to  families and friends  living in the physical world of  media, religion, governments, corporations, banks and education. We are living it everyday,  all day, every week, month and year, year after year. That is all we know. We have been made to believe we are advanced technologically,  but in reality,  we are mere children, playing in the world playground.  We have world information at our fingertips, to study, to learn and inspire.   In the meantime we are watching our home, mother earth,  being destroyed, and even allowing it by remaining silent. Are we the meek?  Have we have lost our way?  Perhaps we have forgotten who we are, why we are here and where we are going.  Even though your  part in this great illusion may seem small, you have no idea of the importance of your presents on this planet at this time in our history.

There are 7.7 billion of us on this planet and within each is a Divine Spark, Spirit or Soul  waiting to be awaken and find their Way.   Most disregard this concept simply because it is not something the  five senses nor scientific evidence can detect.  Our emotions, feelings and thoughts create our reality more than we will ever realize. Many seekers have found the Way to the metaphysical world that exists right before our eyes. Their studies included studying and contemplating the many ancient teachings and recent information available to us today.

One of the many teachings are the Secret Teachings of Jesus found in the Gospel of Thomas,  discovered in 1945 with other ancient texts.   Jesus’ message was of love and enlightenment and not of sin and repentance as taught by the Church. In his sayings, Jesus tells us to look within, to know ourselves; to seek the truth; we are from the light; Recognize what is in our sight, and that which is hidden from us will become plain to us. For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest. He had many messages of his 114 sayings first interpreted in 1959 and more translations in the 70’s.

The wisdom teaching of  Buddha, who could have been King but chose the Way as the path of seeking enlightenment by looking within. His teachings provide much insight into mindfulness  and meditation techniques putting our lives into perspective. He also tells us to look within, to know ourselves.  Buddha said, “Seeking within, you will find stillness. Here there is no more fear or attachment-only joy.”

The Tao Te Ching is probably one of the wisest ancient books, reported to be written by the sage named Lao Tzu over 2500 years ago. It is about living in unity with nature, the Way and teaches us to look within. One saying from the Tao Te Ching, “He who knows the Way does not let it show. Neither does he seek to be rewarded by anyone. Those who know the Way find their reward within themselves.”

The fundamental teaching of Hinduism  is that a human being’s basic nature is not confined to the body or the mind. Beyond both of these is the spirit or the spark of God within the soul. In the Katha Upanishad,  Krishna said ” God allowed man to look outward, but in seeith the outer the inner ignored  Those who see the eternal, turn their gaze within.”

Rumi was a 13th-century Sufi Mystic and  Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar and theologian. His quotes are transforming,  based upon love, hope, inspiration, and awakening.  Rumi said “Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.”

The Law of One, is  a channelling event that occurred in 1981–84. It is  recorded and documented in a  question and answer format taking over 3 years.    It has been said it was the greatest spiritual message since Jesus. It reveals our purpose, the consequences of our behavior and what even  happens at death.  It has intense teachings and one is of our  energy channels, Chakras, how to  balance ourselves. To balance is to know ourselves,and to know ourselves is  our foundation.

To know yourself is the message from our teachers. The language that the Divine Matrix recognizes prayer as imagining it already happened instead of wishing for  it to  happen. Remember our thoughts, emotion and actions create our reality.  Be surrounded by your prayer as if it already has been answered. Ask without judgement whether right or wrong or ego and ask from the heart and feel the results as if it already has happened .

You do not have to be of any particular religion or any religion. Open your heart and seek within. To know yourself is unique to each of us. This uniqueness evolves as we seek the truth with love and service to others.  When you know yourself,   there will be no more fear, only understanding of your purpose.   Meditation, contemplation, study, thanksgiving and prayer are tools for the great journey.
