Jesus Secret Sayings 20, 21 and 22

The Gospel of Thomas presented  114 secret saying of Jesus,  discovered in 1945 in  a cave in upper Egypt with many other Gnostic manuscripts.  The text have been untouched by man for  nearly 2000 years, perhaps for good reason.  Some of the references  and parallels sayings can be found in the New Testament.    Jesus’ message is  different from the church teachings.  Instead of sin and repentance, it is love, enlightenment and look within and know yourself.  In  the very beginning of this wonderful text, we are told whoever understands and learns the meaning of these saying  will not experience death. Jesus spoke in parables with a metaphysical and even mystical  understanding with deeper meaning than we have been taught or even understood.  Jesus was a Master, a teacher, telling us we all have the power within us known as the Christ Consciousness.    Even in the New Testament  Jesus tells us we can do the same works as he, even greater.   In John 14:12, he 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 saying (20) The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us what the kingdom of heavens resembles.” He said to them, “What it resembles is a grain of mustard seed. It is smaller than all other seeds, but if it falls upon plowed terrain it puts forth an enormous foliage and is a shade for birds of heaven. A similar parable can be found in Matthew 13:31-42 .

Consider our faith or belief system is  represented by the mustard seed. It comes to us from Universal Intelligence through the Christ within, the Christ Consciousness. We are all born with this great seed. As we experience life, it is up to each individual to cultivate and grow this great power within by accepting love and compassion into our lives. Many may refer to this great power as the Holy Spirit, perhaps the emotions of Infinite Intelligence.  All of our lives are full of trial and tribulations, but those experiences are our way to grow, much like the mustard seed. We call it God in expression, through the Christ in us. In saying 3 Jesus said When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will know that you are the sons of the living Father.   But if you do not know yourselves, then you are in poverty, and you are poverty.  

In saying (21) Mary said to Jesus, “Whom are your disciples like?”
He said, “They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, ‘Let us have back our field.’ They (will) undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and to give it back to them. Therefore I say, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him dig through into his house of his domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the world. Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Perhaps Jesus is describing the human condition, most  unaware they are the divine spark of God or that mustard seed.  Humanity as a whole accepts what they are told, provoking mostly negative thoughts and emotions.  We all have to be on guard or we will be robbed of our divine right. If we believe difficulty will come, then it will materialize. Again our thoughts, emotions and actions create our reality. Those who understand this think independently will not fear death and are often taken young because they are ready.  In the New Testament verses  in  Luke 12:39-40Luke 11:21-22, Matt 24:37-44Matt 12:29Mark 3:27,  and Mark 4:26-29,  are similar sayings in the New Testament.

(22) Jesus saw some infants at the breast. He said to his disciples: These little ones at the breast are like those who enter into the kingdom. They said to him: If we then be children, shall we enter the kingdom? Jesus said to them: When you make the two one, and when you make the inside as the outside, and the outside as the inside, and the upper side as the lower; and when you make the male and the female into a single one, that the male be not male and the female female; when you make eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then shall you enter [the kingdom].

Jesus is saying every child is born perfect. Not only here but in the New Testament in verses Luke 9:46-48, Luke 18:15-17, Matt 18:1-4, Matt 19:13-15, John 3:1-10, Mark 9:33-37,   and Mark 10:13-16.   Every child born has the spark or seed of the Christ Consciousness and is perfect. Only the thoughts of  humanity can lower that perfection.

So why does the Church teach us we are born sinful when Jesus teaches we are born perfect? Original sin is an Augustine Christian doctrine that says that everyone is born sinful. This means that we are born with the urge to do negative things and to disobey God. It is an important doctrine within the Roman Catholic Church.   The Church also teaches that baptism removes original sin which stains all souls since the fall from grace in the Garden of Eden. It appears the Church teaching is contrary to Jesus’ teaching.

The remaining part of the saying is addressing our thoughts, feelings and actions which should be positive, loving and compassionate. Each female has a masculine side and each male has a feminine side. When we understand we are not female or male we have truly found our true selves and have cultivated our Christ Consciousness. It is a true power we all have within each of us.  We all have the ability to cultivate and grow our  Christ Consciousness as well as our Buddha nature.  Both men were telling us what has been lost over the centuries,  that we and only we can find that divine spark and be just like them and be one with God.

The Law of One confirmed that belief, that we are all one and even tells us that if we are 51 percent positive in all our thoughts, emotions and actions we will ascend to our next journey, what many call heaven.  There was also discussion about Jesus.  Jesus was quick to anger and at a young age he killed a young boy by simply touching him.  He was so  unsettled by this experience, he began a lifetime of seeking and searching. Jesus studied  day and night in its own religious constructs,  Judaism and was learned enough to be a rabbi at a very  young age. Around the age of thirteen he left his family and walked to many other places seeking further information. This went on sporadically until the entity was approximately twenty-five, at which time it returned to its family dwelling, and learned and practiced the art of its earthly father. When Jesus had become able to integrate and  synthesize all experiences,  he began to teach others of the things of a worthwhile nature.  Apparently all his disciples were crucified  except John, who is thought to have died in 100 AD of old age.

The Church has distorted Jesus message and teachings and that is why it is important for each to read and decide for themselves the truth.  There is truth in the Bible and other sacred texts but one must use discernment, our God given gift and be aware of the methods used to control us.   There are other Masters and teachers in the world today that are able to heal and do the same feats as Jesus.  We can as well,  but we have to believe and reprogram ourselves in our own way. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind

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.”  

 

Jesus Secret Sayings 18 and 19

As we continue our journey exploring the Gospel of Thomas, 114 secrets sayings of Jesus, consider the possibility that Jesus’ message was different from what we have been taught. Perhaps one of his messages was we could do the same works as he performed and we were like him. We simply have to trust in him and believe his message.  In   John 14:12.  Jesus said “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.”

Jesus had special abilities even as a young child,  and unlike us,  was able to  develop his abilities  at a very young age. According to the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, and one of the earliest Infancy Gospels believed to be written around 150 AD, Jesus did experience difficulties.   The Gospel deals with Jesus birth to the incident in the temple found in Luke 2:40 . When he was 5 years old, he commanded the waters of a brook to flow into pools by speaking a word.  In another story Jesus makes 12 sparrows out of mud and told them to fly and they did. Other  stories depict a not so positive Jesus.  He withers one child and kills another on the spot when he bangs into Jesus shoulder.  Jesus also kills a new teacher but brings him back to life.  There are many  others stories available in the  Infancy Gospel of Thomas,  found  at the Nag Hammadi Library containing all the gospels discovered in 1945.

Jesus spoke in parables and metaphors; in an esoteric way.   His 114 sayings in the Gospel of Thomas are believed to be his words; untouched by scribes and church fathers for nearly 2000 years.  Now they are available for your  interpretation.  

According to the Gospel of Thomas,  the basic religious experience is not only the recognition of our own divinity but specifically the recognition of one’s origin; the light as in saying 50.  In order to return to our origin, we should discover who we are by looking within ourselves and experience the kingdom of light, peace and life.

So let’s explore the sayings 18 and 19 of Jesus secret sayings. The Gospel of Thomas saying  (18) The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us how our end will be.” Jesus said, “Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death.”

Perhaps  Jesus was telling us when we are born, we are positive divine energy, the spirit or soul. While on earth we are in school and this is our learning ground.  Shortly after we are born we have forgotten who we are and if we remember while we are alive and know our true selves, we will not experience death. In saying 3 Jesus tells us to know ourselves.  Consider the phrase “will not experience death”. Could this be referring to the cycle of reincarnation?  When we finally remember who we are and learn our lessons, we do not have to do it  again.

Many mystics, religions and other belief systems believe in the cycle of reincarnation, including   Jainism,Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. The idea of reincarnation is found in many ancient cultures, and a belief in rebirth/metempsychosis was held by Greek historical figures, such as Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato.  The Essenes were a religious sect during the time of Christ that lived away from the towns. Instead they lived in simple communities. The Essenes practiced the seventh day sabbath, believed in reincarnation and nonviolence to all living creatures.  Some believe Jesus studied and was part of the Essenes.

(19) Jesus said, “Blessed is he who came into being before he came into being. If you become my disciples and listen to my words, these stones will minister to you. For there are five trees for you in Paradise which remain undisturbed during summer and winter and whose leaves do not fall. Whoever becomes acquainted with them will not experience death.”

This is a very difficult saying, but again the phrase, “will not experience death.”  Perhaps Jesus meant blessed is the spirit before it is born in the  human body and when we understand and follow his teachings,  we will be guided to discover  our true self and find our way home.  The tree of life is mentioned in many different ancient and modern cultures, as well as religions and spiritual practices.  The world tree of life is a symbol of manifestation in many cultures as it holds the gateway to knowledge about the true nature of reality and oneself.  The five trees that do not lose their leaves may represent the leaves do not die and provide a path and guidance to enlightenment. The picture to the right is a comparison of a fingerprint and the truck of a tree.

The number five may have even more significance. According to Hinduism, the number five is a symbol of the physical body and the planet earth. Ether is the first element, the essence of God.  Air is the next element, fire  is the third element, water is the fourth element and earth is the fifth element. He human body is made of all the elements. In the Bible, the number 5  is significant because of the creation of man, with  five fingers, five senses and five toes. In Buddhism there are  “5 Skandas or Aggregates”,   form, feeling, sensation, volition and consciousness. In Judaism, the first 5 books of the Torah are used for the bible code.  In Islam,  the five pillars are shahadah, witnessing the oneness of God and the prophethood of Muhammad are regular observance of the five prescribed daily prayers, paying zakah, fasting during the month of Ramadan, and performance of the hajj at least once in a lifetime.

In the Law of One session 15.12, we are instructed  how  to balance our energy centers, the first five Chakras.   First is to understand and accept the energy, second is emotions, third is ego, fourth is learn love and fifth apply wisdom.

According to the Gnostic view, the tree of life has a strong connection to the serpent or kundalini awakening. Essentially there is an energy coiled up at the base of the spine that will travel up the spine toward the brain igniting all of the energy pathways or chakras of the body on its way.

 Perhaps each person should become acquainted with the signals that resonate with them for guidance in life.  The five trees of guidance could be; (1)  love and know the Creator with all your heart, (2) Our thoughts  (3) emotions; (4) know yourself  and (5)  power within, our spirit.   The keys for spiritual growth are within each of us.   We are all spiritual beings; our journey to seek the truth is arduous,  with many distractions and distortions. We are all different, and seeking the truth should be in your own way and time.

Next time our journey will continue with the Gospel of Thomas starting with the saying 20.

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.

Meditation, the Tool for Transformation

In the last blog, The Most Sacred, we explored our spiritual realities. Instead of  listening and following what others tell us,  perhaps it is time to seek and discover  the truth for ourselves by looking within.  Meditation, with its countless benefits, is our tool to explore the Way. Jesus said in the Dialogue of the Savior, left out of the Bible, “When I came among humanity, I opened the door to the Way. I showed you the path that you must follow. You will find it within yourselves.” And Buddha said six hundred years earlier, “Before you set foot on the path, master yourself.” Krishna said, around 3500 BC, ” Those find the Way are those who have love and forgiveness in the hearts, and Lao Tzu said in 5oo BC, “the Way is empty, the Way is full. There is no Way to describe what it is. Find it within yourselves.”

Meditation has been around for thousands of years and is based on Hindu Scripture, as a religious 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.”
It is even mentioned in the Bible, Psalm 1:1-2, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; (2) but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”
In Joshua 1: 8 states “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.”
The Acts of Peter XXI,   also omitted from the bible, “Give ear; withdraw your souls from all that appears but is not truly real; close these eyes of yours, close your ears, withdraw from actions that are outwardly seen; and you shall know the reality of Christ and the whole secret of your salvation.” In  Matthew 6:6 ”  But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”          

But what is left out is how to pray or meditate. Perhaps Jesus’ message in the Gospel of Thomas can assist in our journey of seeking the truth.   In the Gospel of Thomas,   (48) Jesus said, “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 one house is the body, and  the two are mind and spirit. A very similar saying in (106) Jesus said, “When you make the two one, you will become the sons of man, and when you say, ‘Mountain, move away,’ it will move away.”

The two are  mind and spirit, thought and emotion.   From a spiritual perspective, Meditation is our  Gateway, our connection to Universal Intelligence.  Jesus was telling us how in the Gospel of Thomas, omitted from the bible. When we can make our thoughts and emotions one,  we will be transformed and will able to move mountains.   

We all have a divine power within. It is up to each of us to look within, know ourselves and understand our purpose. Our tool is meditation, contemplation, prayer and seeking the truth.  This video may provide additional insight for those seeking the truth. 

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!!!

What is God?

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 chemistryour 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 10635869_10152764748543781_2989172388846140521_nunderstanding 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 Chakra symbolSerpent 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 medical imaginesor 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 The-Ra-Material-The-Law-of-One-quote-love-service-to-others-heart-chakra-spirituality-consciousness-3of 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  a formal 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 cff285a056c19538eb9d01c42865898cexplain 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.” 

bring forth what is in youIn 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 Lao-Tzu-3.jpgforgetfulness 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; DfEgwEEWkAAQ2jIand 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?”

Buddha

We Are Connected

We are all connected to the same source, the One Infinite Creator,  and we are all trying to images tefind our way back home. Even scientific research has suggested that we are wired with spiritual brains and how meditative prayers actually changes our brain.

According to various sacred texts and the more recent contact, the Law of One, “All things, all of life, all of the creation is part of one original thought.” We move our body, mind, and spirit in somewhat eccentric patterns because we have not grasped the concept that we are part of the original thought, that we are all one. To know the truth is to know yourself.

quote-if-you-want-to-be-wrong-then-follow-the-masses-socrates-85-17-67.jpgOur ancient teachers provided the message over the years, but man has misinterpreted the meaning and the masses follow. We are condemn by religions and those  who follow that religion if our beliefs are different than theirs.

The Christian Gnostics, who lost the battle with orthodox Christianity tells us a Divine spark exist within us and is also taught by the Syriac Christians mystics as other world belief systems and religions. Edgar Cayce said Christian Gnosticism was the highest form Rumi-Quotes-1of Christianity.

Buddha taught us that the Universal mind is not subject to birth and death. It is beyond all concepts of duality and Divine matter is eternal, it contains within itself all reality and all truth. Buddha taught us meditation, the gateway to find our way home, an essential part of our spiritual journey.

Krishna from the Hindu Religion said, “the Lord dwells in the heart of all things. He is the only reality so do not be deceived by appearances.”

Lao Tzu in the Tao Te Ching said the Tao (God) never answers with words. It does not reach out for things, but all things come to it. The unspoken plan unfolds slowly. It gathers all things as if in a net, so nothing is lost.

images1Jesus, the messenger of love, said we are from the light in the Gospel of Thomas, discovered in 1945 and can be found in saying 50 in the Nag Hammadi library. 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. We all have the power within. In the Gospel of Thomas saying (3) Jesus said: If those who lead you say to you: See, the kingdom is in heaven, then the birds of the heaven will go before you; if they say to you: It is in the sea, then the fish will go before you. But the kingdom is within you, and it is outside of you. When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will know that you are the sons of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you are in poverty, and you are poverty.all-religions-one3

God is spirit of pure unknowable energy encompassing all. We are all connected spiritual beings , all from the same source. According to the Law of One, no religion has all the truth, but all religions  have some truth.  Our requirements are the same regardless of religion or no religion, to  learn the ways of love, wisdom and be a service to others. Meditation, contemplation, prayer and study will help with that endeavor. If you fail to learn the lessons in this life perhaps you will in the next, but eventually we all find our way back home.

Spiritually Wired Comes With Rainbows

Research has suggested that we are wired with spiritual brains and how meditative prayers actually changes the brain. 149689_10151201865818781_517019379_n Dr Andrew Newberg is 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 images rainbow monkpromoted 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.download (25)

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
