DR. MICHAEL MCDOWELL – EXPLAINS SARSCOV2 – BIOWEAPON AGENDA

The world is not as it seems more now than ever before. There is a spiritual awakening happening and we can feel it. It does not matter if your Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindi, Daoist or any other religion, there is one belief all can agree. There is,  as the American Indian would say, One Great Spirit,  in all places at all times.   This spiritual awakening is about our transformation from the material world to the spiritual. As we come to understand the world around us, the things in plane sight, the more we grow closer to that divinity within ourselves.

 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy,  your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are unhealthy,  your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Our transformation is levels of understanding.  The more we trust  the Great Spirit,  the more we grow, we begin to see life from a “higher” perspective.

As the fear and anger disappear, it is replaced by compassion and love. We even have gratitude and appreciation in our hearts for the opportunity to experience what is unfolding before our eyes.  This is our time to grow. When we all wake up, we will realize we all are truly One in Spirit, no separation, all part of the One Great Spirit.

Nature’s Top Sleep Aids

These 7 remedies can help you sleep without the risk of drugs
September 12, 2021 Updated: September 12, 2021

 

Avoid the risks associated with sleep medications carrying “black box warnings” of harm (including death). Nature has several effective sleep aids ready to ease your tossing and turning and escort you gently into dreamland.

Sleep is as individualized as it is essential to your health. Whether you generally fall asleep easily or are more of an insomniac, it’s good to have a few tried and true sleep aids on hand that are gentle, effective and, most importantly, non-habit-forming. You never know when jet lag, stress, or an irregular period in your life may have you counting sheep and praying for sleep.

Despite their potential negative health impacts, drugs for sleep disorders are among the most often prescribed medications. While there may be certain situations when such drugs are required, for most people they should be a last resort after exhausting safer options, such as better sleep hygiene. When you do need occasional sleep support, nature’s top sleep aids are safe, soothing and, unlike many insomnia medications, won’t leave you chemically addicted and feeling strung out in the morning.

Melatonin

A natural hormone associated with the sleep-wake cycle, melatonin is released by the pineal gland in the brain during evening hours, dropping in production when the sun rises. When the body’s natural timeclock, your circadian rhythm, is disrupted by things such as shift work, stress, or exposure to blue light from screens, melatonin levels can become depleted. During such times, supplementing with melatonin may be a safe way to restore your natural balance.

Experts suggest using supplemental melatonin in harmony with natural practices, like taking it one to two hours before you want to fall asleep or around sundown. Stop using screens (this includes your phone) and dim the lights in your home. If you must watch TV at night, be sure you are at least six feet away from the screen.

You can further enhance the effectiveness of melatonin by getting exposure to natural daylight during the morning and afternoon hours. If you can’t be outside, sit by a well-lit window to stimulate production of your natural melatonin as the daylight fades.

Vitamin D

Exposure to sunlight is not only essential for maintaining a healthy circadian rhythm, it’s a primary source for photosynthesis of vitamin D’s precursor: previtamin D3. There are more than 1,000 known genetic processes that are regulated by vitamin D3, making adequate intake of this vitamin essential for your body and your sleep.

2018 meta-analysis of the association between vitamin D and sleep disorders found that study participants with vitamin D deficiency had a significantly increased risk of developing sleep disorders. Further analysis found that low vitamin D was also associated with poor sleep quality.

There are two ways to get the right amount of vitamin D: proper diet/supplementation and adequate sunlight exposure. In addition to daylight outdoor activity, adding foods such as pastured eggs and fatty fish, and if necessary, a vitamin D3 supplement, to your diet several times weekly will ensure that you are getting optimum vitamin D to support quality sleep each night.

Passion Flower

Passion vines produce passion flowers—a lovely addition to any garden. Did you know that the passion flower is also a treatment for insomnia? If you can’t avail yourself to passion flowers with a sunny stroll through a garden, you can enjoy the sleep-inducing benefits of Passiflora incarnata in supplement form and possibly kiss your sleepless nights goodbye.

2017 study of the effect of the medicinal plant Passifloraceae on sleep showed that extracts of the plant, when administered via injection, induced a significant increase in sleep time in rats. More time was spent in “slow wave” or phase 3 sleep, the deepest phase of non-rapid eye movement sleep characterized by delta brainwaves. Interestingly, this is the phase of sleep when dreams occur and is also important for consolidating memories.

Lavender Essential Oil

There is no scent so instantly relaxing as fresh lavender flowers. Lavender has been used as a sleep aid since ancient times. Adding lavender essential oil to a spray bottle with distilled water to spritz your pillows before bed is a modern and convenient equivalent to the herb-stuffed pillows of the past. Similarly, a bedside atomizer can help soothe dry sinus passages while you sleep, adding humidity to the air, which aids breathing.

Beyond adding a fresh scent to your sheets, lavender can help smooth out the wrinkles in your sleep routine. Research has shown that lavender oil can increase your quality of sleep and may have the added effect of reducing anxiety. Another study found that aromatherapy using lavender increased both sleep quality and quality of life in women experiencing sleep deprivation in connection with menopause.

Valerian

Valerian root is known for being the inspiration for the anti-anxiety drug Valium. So, it’s no surprise that this botanical is valued for its calming, sleep-inducing effects.

Valerian is the most widely studied herb for sleepand is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The plant, Valeriana officinalis, is a popular herb that grows in many parts of the world. Both the mineral-rich leaves and the rhizome (rootstalk) have been used in herbal remedies for hundreds of years. Most commonly used as a relaxant, a warm cup of valerian tea may be just what the doctor ordered for a night of sound sleep.

In a study of 918 children under 12 years of age experiencing restlessness and nervous dyskoimesis (tics and involuntary movements), 81 percent of patients had a “distinct and convincing reduction in severity … for all symptoms” when dosed with a homeopathic remedy combining lemon balm and valerian root extract.

Children’s symptoms previously described as “moderate/severe” by parents and clinicians improved to “mild” or “absent” in most patients. Researchers concluded that the herbal remedy was effective at treating restlessness in children and was very well tolerated.

One of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to use valerian is in a bedtime tea, which can be made by simmering the root or, for a slightly milder effect, decocting the dried leaves in water just off a boil.

Cannabis (cannabinoids)

Cannabis is slowly being integrated into the legal pharmacopeia in the United States, but this plant has a history as an herbal remedy that spans millennia. Upon ingestion, active phytochemical compounds in cannabis called cannabinoids bind with receptor sites in the brain to deliver a host of therapeutic effects. One such effect can be deep relaxation and—yes—better sleep.

A 2017 study seeking to summarize the state of research on cannabis and sleep, including specific sleep disorders, found that the cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia. Another known cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), was found to decrease the length of time it takes to fall asleep (sleep latency), although it demonstrated the potential to impair sleep quality in the long-term.

CBD further showed potential for treatment of REM sleep disorders and excessive daytime sleepiness, a frequent side effect of poor quality sleep.

Chamomile

Is there anything more soothing than a warm cup of chamomile tea when you’re winding down? There is a reason that chamomile has become synonymous with sleepiness; this is one superstition that really rings true.

Researchers conducting a study on postpartum women experiencing depression and poor sleep quality instructed a test group to drink chamomile tea for a period of two weeks in addition to receiving standard postpartum care. Compared to the control group that didn’t drink tea, chamomile drinkers had significantly better sleep scores and fewer symptoms of depression.

Sleep Finds a Way

Nature has infinite intelligence and sleep will find a way, especially if you provide gentle, plant-based support in measured doses. Remember, everyone experiences occasional sleeplessness. It’s safest to avoid sleep drugs with black box warnings about death from sleepwalking, sleep driving, and other unconscious activities associated with these medications.

Crimes Against Humanity

Crimes against Humanity  

WHAT ARE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY?

Crimes against humanity refer to specific crimes committed in the context of a large-scale attack targeting civilians, regardless of their nationality. These crimes include murder, torture, sexual violence, enslavement, persecution, enforced disappearance, etc.

Crimes against humanity have often been committed as part of State policies, but they can also be perpetrated by non-State armed groups or paramilitary forces. Unlike war crimes, crime against humanity can also be committed in peacetime, and contrary to genocide, they are not necessarily committed against a specific national, ethnical, racial or religious group.

CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW

Crimes against humanity appeared for the first time in a treaty in the 1945 Nuremberg Charter at the end of the Second World War, albeit with a different definition than today.

Since the 1990s, crimes against humanity have been codified in different international treaties such as the Statute of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (1993), the Statute of the International Tribunal for Rwanda (1994) and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (1998). The Rome Statute provides the most recent and mostSee the source image expansive list of specific criminal acts that may constitute crimes against humanity.

Unlike other human rights violations, war crimes do not engage State responsibility but individual criminal responsibility. This means that individuals can be tried and found personally responsible for these crimes.

Prohibited acts include:

  • Murder
  • Extermination
  • Enslavement
    Deportation or forcible transfer of population
  • Imprisonment
  • Torture
  • Sexual violence
  • Persecution against an identifiable group
  • Enforced disappearance of persons
  • The crime of apartheid
  • Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health

Juan O Savin: An Exclusive Interview | Flyover Conservatives

Juan O Savin: An Exclusive Interview | Flyover Conservatives

 We are  involved and participating in the great awakening. The fog of war is is very dense and at times we get a glimmer of light.  Reconnection to our  source, God by many names is a process. It is much like waking from a deep sleep, a state of prolonged unconsciousness. We have to use our own unique experiences and perspectives. We are in a paradigm shift that reconfigures the way we think, feel and act and how we experience everything.

Our awakening is realization of  something greater, something more than we could ever imagine,  the power within, our true nature.  The world is not as it seems and we live in two inseparable worlds, the metaphysical and  the physical. It started with COVID19. There are so many aspects how each of us experienced the last year. It was and is an arduous and difficult journey.

Humanity as a whole, have experienced indoctrination and programming since birth. Our culture, education, religion and political systems have conditioned us in our belief and thought processes. People have been drawn to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places to seek the truth. No religion or belief system has all the truth but all have some aspects of the truth. The awakening is to help us remember who we really are, why we are here.

Matthew 12:25-26 25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand?

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

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

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

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

The third eye is mentioned in Matthew 6:22 when Jesus said, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”

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

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

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

It is up to humanity to raise the collective consciousness of the planet. Collective consciousness is our thoughts, emotions and actions which operates as a unifying force. Whatever you think, feel and do is felt by everyone, creating not only your reality, but the world. We all experienced it on January 20, 2020.   Our society as a whole is a culmination and reflection of our attitudes and how we display them internally and externally. We are  playing a role in collectively creating our own reality.

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

The new outlook of the world starts with us.

Trump: Supporters Should Join ‘Wild’ Protest in DC on Jan. 6

Trump: Supporters Should Join ‘Wild’ Protest in DC on Jan. 6

December 19, 2020 Updated: December 19, 2020

President Donald Trump on Saturday called on supporters to join in a planned protest in Washington on Jan. 6, 2021.

Trump alleged in a tweet that it was “statistically impossible” for him to have lost the 2020 election, referring to a report that his trade adviser Peter Navarro released this week.

He then added: “Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”

In another missive, the president said Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden didn’t win the election.

“He lost all 6 Swing States, by a lot. They then dumped hundreds of thousands of votes in each one, and got caught. Now Republican politicians have to fight so that their great victory is not stolen. Don’t be weak fools!” he wrote.

Biden has declared victory in the election, referring to certified vote counts from all 50 states. Trump and other Republicans are contesting election results in courts in key states. The Epoch Times is not calling the race at this time.

Navarro released a report that alleged the election “may well have been stolen” from Trump.

“If these election irregularities are not fully investigated prior to Inauguration Day and thereby effectively allowed to stand, this nation runs the very real risk of never being able to have a fair presidential election again,” Navarro said in the report.

Trump supporters are expected to gather in the nation’s capitol as members of Congress convene in a joint session on Jan. 6 to count electoral votes. “Stop the Steal” organizers have said they’ll hold an event.

There’s an outside possibility that Congress moves to nullify some state’s votes, or change them from a Democratic slate of electors to a Republican one, but some experts believe that is unlikely.

During the counting, a partnership of at least one representative and at least one senator can file objections in writing to a state’s votes. That triggers the chambers to withdraw and debate the objection. The chambers can then vote on the objection; it requires a simple majority in each chamber to be withheld.

A handful of people who will be in the House of Representatives when Congress meets—Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and Rep.-elects Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Barry Moore (R-Ala.), and Bob Good (R-Va.)—have committed to filing objections. At least five senators or senators-elect have said they aren’t ruling out joining them.

Republican Senate leadership, and many Democrats have derided the plans.

“There is 0.00 chance the House reverses the election,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) wrote on Twitter.

“I think on the basis of the way that the system works, the decision by the Electoral College yesterday was determinative,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told reporters this week, referring to electors casting votes in their respective states.

“The Electoral College submitted its vote. And I also think as we look into next year, it’s very important that each of us pledges to work with President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect [Kamala] Harris,” Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, told reporters.

We Are All Mystics

In truth, we are all mystics on a spiritual journey seeking unity with Intelligent Infinity, or the Divine. I always believed and felt there is something greater that cannot not be secret-travel-quotefully explained by world religions. From a religious perspective, we are told what and how to think about the divine, each religion having their own perspective. After studying various religions and belief systems  I found commonality helping me in finding my own way. The discovery of Law of One and having mystical experiences were the major events that changed my life, realizing I was a mystic.

Jewish mysticism pre-dates Christian monks by six to eight centuries. Mysticism is prevalent in christianity, Islam,  Buddhism, Zen, Taoism, Hinduism, Sant Mat and throughout many other cultures. In some cultures, mystics are called shamans or even soothsayers. The Nagi or three Kings associated with the birth of Jesus were astrologers unnamed (4)or mystics.

Mystics have been responsible for some of the most impressive literature produced by their respective religions. Many have  offered interpretations of Scripture, theological treatises, sermons, meditations, letters, stories, and poems. They  have a passionate intensity of love for the divine and are aware of the Oneness of all. Some believe you cannot be a mystic unless you have mystical experience while others believe it begins with seeking the truth and devotion. 64c4159794d1a0c909e6c457a806c457As I said, we are all mystics to some degree and it is up to each person to pursue the greatest human ambition,  to seek God or Infinite Intelligence in their own way.

A mystic can use a bridge to the metaphysical and physical worlds in many ways. We all receive signs from the divine via our guides, unique to each person. These signs can be given through our thoughts, nature, dreams, psychic abilities, numerology, discernments and many others. It is important to recognize the polarity of entities, either positive or negative, providing the message. The key is to pay attention and use your gift of discernment.

Meditation is the gateway to Intelligent Infinity which can be attained by aligning your heart and mind. Perhaps that is what Jesus meant when he said in saying 48 of the Gospel of Thomas, “Jesus said, “If two make peace with each there is a lot of misunderstanding  about mysticism and  varies from person to person.  It is other in this one house, they will say to the mountain, ‘Move Away,’ and it will move away.”

Spiritual Healing

As we increase our understanding of our true nature,  we begin to realize there is a  divine-love-quotes-8-17-best-images-about-love-on-pinterestSource,  a Universal Intelligence of pure divine energy, that connects us all. Science may call it a quantum or biofield, described as “a field of energy and information, both putative and subtle, that regulates the homeodynamic function of living organisms and may play a substantial role in understanding and guiding health processes.” Science also tells us that the heart electromagnetic energy  field be detected and measured several feet from the body.

More recently, Dr. Valerie V. Hunt, scientist, author, lecturer and Professor Emeritus of Physiological Science at the University of California confirmed electromagnetic energy is the most plentiful constant energy of our universe. It is a part of all structures living and dead, including the atmosphere. We create hqdefault (4)electromagnetic energies in the atoms of our living cells, which we enhance by the reaction with the atmospheric energy field. We know this expanded energy field as the human aura. Without this biofield life would not exist and there would be only an inner biochemical mix. Dr. Hunt was involved in research that is uncovering the various dimensions involved in the bioenergetic transactions between humans and the environment as they relate to human behaviors, emotions, health, illness, and disease, as well as scientifically quantifying the human aura and the levels of consciousness it contains., all you have to do is realize the power within you.

The Abrahamic religions, Christians, Jews and Islam may refer to this quantum or biofield as the Holy Spirit while while Taoist refer to chi or qi and the Dao or the way. tetragrammaton-ineffable-name-of-godHindu refer to prana and chakras while the Buddha included prana under a different name, one that is also used in yoga. The words is virya, and it means vitality, or life energy.

Consider all the different labels of this divine energy by science and religion the same. When we realize we are co-creators by our thoughts, emotions and actions then the healing process can begin.

We are all subject to three types of diseases that affect the body, mind and Spirit and all are interrelated. Disease normally occurs during 68395567_2628362577247376_4371379888091824128_nrecurring negative thoughts, emotions and actions. We know the Law of Karma, we reap what we sow. The body is affected by bacteria, virus and an array of toxins in our foods and environment. Our bodies suffer from pain that needs physical healing. Our minds are susceptible to infection by fear, worries, anger, greed, selfishness, jealousy just to name of few, which requires mental healing. Our spirit is haunted by the disease of forgetting our true nature which cause man to forget their perfect divine nature and focus on the physical world. Ignorance creates imbalances between body, mind and spirit.

Chakras  are the bodies seven energy centers. The healing process begins with clearing blockages in these energy centers and connect to the quantum field. Energy flows with love. When we love others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others and placeboare mindful of our thoughts, emotions and actions, the healing process will begin. Prayer, meditation, contemplation and gratitude is part of the healing process.

 Jesus   message to us was we all have the ability to heal if we believe his message of love and enlightenment and look within ourselves to find the answers. In  John 14:12 when Jesus said “Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.

 

Paul said I have become all things to all people

What did the apostle Paul mean when he said I have become all things to all people. Perhaps first we should consider the question, “Who was Paul” We believe he was the author of 1st and 2nd Corinthians, letters he wrote to his Churches.

pharisees_7Prior to Paul’s conversion, he was involved in persecuting Christians affirmed in the Book of Acts and in his own letters. Paul, or Saul, was a loyal Pharisee, the ones many believe responsible for Jesus’ crucifixion. In Galatians 1: 13,  Paul said you have heard of my former life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God violently and tried to destroy it. In verse 14,  And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers.”

A Pharisees is a member of an ancient Jewish sect, distinguished by strict observance of the traditional and written law, and commonly held to have pretensions to superior sanctity. Jesus was a thorn in their side. He was talking to the Jewish people in John 8 Bible-Verses-About-the-Essence-of-the-PhariseesWoe-to-PhariseesJesus speaks of the light of the world and how the truth will set you free. He also speaks of Children of the Devil when talking to the Jewish people when he said (v44) ,”You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies”.

Again in Matthew 23, Jesus was talking to the crowds warning against hypocrisy and the seven woes on the teachers of the law and Pharisees. Matthew 23 is a interesting read for those who are interested and may provide insight on understanding Paul.

Acts 9 tells us as Saul drew near to Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from paul-vision-road-to-damascus-505810-mobileheaven flashed around him. (4) He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?”5“Who are You, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” He replied. 6“Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Paul was a pharisee loyal to the traditions of Yahweh the Jewish God which Jesus accused as the Devil in John 8:44. Jesus sevens woes were about the Pharisees and in Matthew 23:15 Jesus says “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have main-qimg-2f1393df9996cd762c91ff7c776f9e66succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are..”

Paul said in verse 22 “To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.”

Did Paul go against Jesus message in Matthew 23:15 as well as the Church of today?  I Each person should come to their own conclusion. I think it is important to see Paul as a human with all the traits we all possess. According to Psychology Today our memories are fallible, our perceptions are unreliable and ourinspirational-bible-quotes-2-600x600 world view, regardless how strongly believed, may well be contrary to the facts and even physical law. The Bible is a wonderful tool but to truly find God one should look within, Jesus true message. It is about love and helping one another, regardless of religion or belief system. It is about getting up in the morning and being thankful for the day and knowing that you have the power of God with you each minute of everyday. Simply let Love be your guide.

Enoch, a Missing Link?

The Book of Enoch was probably one of the most influential book used by writers of the bible but was omitted in the  Old Testament and the Tanakh, the Jewish Bible.  It was one of  many ancient sacred texts omitted from the Bible that are available to us today . The Book of Enoch was first discovered in the 18th century and most assumed it was penned after the beginning of the Christian era because it had quotes and paraphrases as well as concepts found in the New Testament. However, the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls found at Qumran in 1946,   proved the book was in existence long before Jesus  and believe to be written sometime in the 2nd or 3rd Century BC.

Much of the ideas written down would influence later thought across nations. Religious leaders. Secular leaders. Focus on China, India, Greece and SW Asia.

The time period from  800 BC-200 BC was   known as the Axial age.  It was a time in our history  when the most creative and influential  thinking in the  world, amazingly occurring in four separate civilizations; West Asia, South Asia, East Asia, and northeastern Mediterranean. Some of the Sages included Zoroaster, Jeremiah, Isaiah, The Buddha, Confucius, Heraclitus, Socrates, plato and Aristotle , Varhamma Mahavira,  and Pythagoras. In different ways, they responded to an array of spiritual ideas and concepts; the emergence of the self-consciousness. It was early in our history when humans beings began to reflect on individual existence, and the meaning of life and death.

The Book of Enoch  was once cherished by Jews and Christians alike. It is read in certain Coptic Christian Churches in Ethiopia. There is  evidence Jesus not only studied the book, but also respected it highly enough to allude to the doctrine and content. And, there are over one hundred comments in the New Testament which find precedence in the Book of Enoch.

One of the interesting aspects of the Book of Enoch for me, starts in Chapter 6. ” And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters.
2 And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: ‘Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men.”   It is the story of the fallen angels and is virtually identical with Genesis 6.1-2. In the Book of Enoch, we get their names and many other details. The angels, referred to as the watchers, were the children of the heaven. Some saw and lusted after human women and said to each other that they should choose wives from among the children of men. At 7.2, he says they had giant sons and were able to easily dominate Enoch’s people.  This Youtube video may provide evidence Giants did exist according to this article,    When Giants Roamed the Earth.

“A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty – it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man.” Albert Einstein

The Law of One references higher level entities more sophisticated that  we can use as guides, if we pay attention. The Law of One also mentions quarantine , possibly because of incidents of the Giants to protect us from further intrusions.    

No one really knows why the Book of Enoch was not included in the bible.  There is only  speculation. What is important though is, they are  available now like so many other sacred texts that were not so-called “canonized “by the Church authority.

Sacred ancient texts labeled as heresy or not approved by the Church, certainly peaks my interest. The discovery of thirteen ancient texts called “codices” were discovered in Upper Egypt untouched by scribes in 1945. They were translated in the 1970’s and are known as the Nag Hammadi Library. Scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth were found, and labeled as Gnostic Gospels thought to be destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define “orthodoxy.”

One should contemplate why once treasured ancient sacred texts are being revealed during our time,  providing a different understanding than church teaching. In the Gospel of Thomas verse 5, Jesus said, “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”  Gospel of Thomas is 114 secret sayings of Jesus  revealing a different understanding and teaching than church fathers have taught us.  Next post will include the discussion of the sayings 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). 

The Book of Enoch and the Book of the Secrets of Enoch are at your fingertips.
