Pineal Gland Activation, the Lamp of the Body.

Near the center of the brain at the top of the spinal cord, tucked in a groove between the two hemispheres, is a tiny gland, known today as the pineal gland. According to Science the pineal gland is the body’s internal clock and according to our ancient teachers, it is for our spiritual development.

First the science. The pineal gland  regulates the body’s circadian rhythms and  produces and secretes the hormone melatonin.  Circadian rhythms are the daily rhythms of the body, including signals that make someone feel tired, sleep, wake up, and feel alert; around the same time each day.  The circadian rhythms also plays  a crucial role in many other  biological processes, such as  hormone secretion, cardiovascular health, glucose homeostasis, and body temperature regulation. Energy balance is one of the most important cornerstones of metabolic processes, whereas energy imbalance is associated with many diseases  such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, to name a few. Out of balance could  mean sleeping too much or too little,  feeling active and restless in the middle of the night, or feeling sleepy at unusual times.

One problem,  published by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health,  is pineal gland calcification.  Science suggests the calcifications plays a role in the development of Alzheimer disease.  Fluoridated water is believed to be one of the chief causes of calcification.  Evidence also suggests that children reach puberty earlier now as a consequence of fluoridated water. We are told  fluoridated water was to prevent tooth decay, but does it really?

With all its research, science still does not fully understand the pineal gland, but seems to agree it is indispensable to a process most of us take for granted. More research is needed to understand additional pineal gland functions and determine how light and melatonin affect everyday health. 

Along those same lines is  another interesting  discovery related to the neurons in our brain. They have the ability to produce photons of light, known as “biophotons”. They are capable of communicating through light. According to the biophoton theory developed on the base of these discoveries, biophoton light is emitted from in the cells of the organism, more precisely, in the DNA molecules of their nuclei.  Light is constantly released and absorbed by the DNA and connects all cells, tissues, and organs within the body. This serves as our  main communication network and as the principal regulating instance for all life processes. The consciousness-like coherence properties of the biophoton fields are closely related and indicate its possible role as an interface to the non-physical realms of mind, psyche and consciousness. tumblr_n3kf3xORWT1r7ahobo1_1280

This discovery  reminds me what Jesus said in The Gospel of Thomas,

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.”
If they say to you, “Is it you?”
say, “We are its children and the chosen of the living father.”

All+in+Your+Perspective+(Luke+11_34-36)The pineal gland is known as the third eye, the sixth chakra or energy center, the color indigo.  Ancient traditions knew of the pineal or third eye and all its mysteries. They knew of the pineal role in our spiritual development and communication with spiritual beings. Within Taoist self cultivation, the third eye, known as Ancestral Cavity, is located between and behind the eyes and serves as the cavity of profound and ancient knowledged and can be accessed through meditation and contemplation.

In Buddhism, the third eye refers to Eye of Consciousness, seeing the world beyond 10-minphysical eyes. In Hinduism the third eye is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge..

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

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

chakra-details_com_Each Chakra is a energy center and blockage varies from  person to person.  The seventh chakra  or violet ray is unimpaired and is used as a energy receptor.  The sixth Chakra or indigo ray, our pineal gland,  can be blocked by feeling or belief in unworthiness.  The fifth Chakra, known as the blue-ray, is our understandings of ourselves and our communication with others. The fourth Chakra, the heart chaka, known as the green-ray, is our understanding of universal love or compassion. The third Chakra, or yellow-ray is what we call the ego. The second Chakra, or orange-ray is the emotional or personal energy center. The 1st chakra, or red-ray is basic and fundamental, but is where the Kundalini lies asleep waiting to be awakened.  In Hinduism, the Kundalini,  the coil serpent  is the divine power in an individual, and waiting to awaken this power to affect enlightenment.

The serpent is referenced in John 3: 13-15 , when Jesus said,   “Just as Moses lifted up the snake  in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up. For everyone believes may have eternal life”.

Moses rod represents the spine.  Spiritual awakening is a process. It is about energy.    As66718af744cb687d02811dec8d6d8168  the energy begins to flow freely through the energy centers, it begins to gradually unblock and balancing begins.  You may experience unexplained phenomena and emotions as you meditate and contemplate your  true-self.

Our pineal gland is already active.  We all have some degree of intuition or discernment, a sense of knowing that will expand the more we unblock our energy centers and more  energy begins to  flow. The the pineal gland will grow stronger  and may even awaken the Kundalini.

The light in the body is the single eye, our pineal gland,  in the middle of the forehead luke-11-34-36-lseen in deep meditation, our gateway and connection to Infinite intelligence.  We can perceive through our pineal gland, our spiritual eye,  the love and light of the One Infinite Creator.  By fixing the vision of the two eyes at the point between the eyebrows in the interiorized concentration of meditation, one can focus the positive negative optical energy of the right and left eyes and unite the currents in the sign eye of the divine light. The more we practice,  the more the body and mind inwardly illumined with astral light and wisdom, receives indescribable joy  and unending guidance of divine wisdom.

Why have we forgotten our our true Nature?

Have we forgotten our true nature? Perhaps one reason is we have been programmed since birth. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we are and who we become. It is a worldwide system of control to keep us occupied, and has become what we believe is normal.050d84f574c93d469053b6c7332e6895a8e0ba-wm

Today, our world is in a confused and distorted state. Many begin to seek the truth, seeking  answers to the age old questions of our identity. Most find this task difficult because society requires most to work at jobs 8 hours a day to pay for food, shelter and take care of families. We are constantly bombarded with corporate messaging creating fear. It becomes a confusing, distorted and arduous journey with many different paths, making it difficult to wake up spiritually and even more difficult  to follow a spiritual path.

From a very young age we are programmed by our parents who were programed by their parents, and the vicious and seemly unbreakable cycle goes on and on.  We go to schools, churches, cff285a056c19538eb9d01c42865898csynagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places where we are told how and what to think and how to believe and know God. Then we follow blindly for the rest of our lives, never seeking the truth about our true selves.

Who controls these systems and why do they want control? Perhaps it is to keep us from knowing our true nature, knowing our true self .  Each of us have a higher power within, a divine light waiting to be awakened. We are all spiritual beings with a body and mind b0979c556c4ca95796ea254343c2464fmade of pure energy. Our thoughts create our reality through emotions and actions . Fear, control, greed, are just some negative emotions while love and helping others are some of the positive.  We only think what we have been taught, and we are what we think!

 Humanity has been in a deep sleep since our beginning and in order to begin the spiritual journey, one needs to wake up and ask the age old question, “Who am I”, why am I here” and “where am I going”.

In ancient times, there was a mystical poem about us called The Hymn of the Pearl. It may be one of the most foretelling Gnostic scriptures telling us of our true nature.  The PS102hymn is commonly interpreted as Gnostic view of the human condition; we are spirits lost in a world of matter and forgetful of our true origin. This state of affairs could change by a revelatory message delivered by a divine messenger. Perhaps the Law of One is that divine messenger.

Scott Mandelker, PHD, teacher and scholar said the Law of One material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”.

angelIt started in 1981, when three members of the L/L research, Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot, Carla Rueckert, a devote Christian , and James McCarty, the sole survivor today, received a narrow band transmission from a Social memory complex named Ra. Ra stated,

“ We have watched your group. We have been called to your group, for you have a need for the diversity of experiences in channeling which go with a more intensive, or as you might call it, advanced approach to the system of studying the patterns of the illusions of your body, your mind, and  your spiritwhich you call seeking the truth. We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same.”

Many say it is a hoax but the complexity of the responses, which are so masterfully and skillfully crafted that no human could possibly have the knowledge or ability to create the responses. Others may say it is from the devil or satan.  But in 1 John 4:1 of the New Testament says “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see 2bd62658ab714eee2e561a6315770208--love-and-light-quotes-imageswhether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

The sessions open with, “I am Ra. I greet you in the love and the light of our Infinite Creator” and closes with, “I am Ra. I leave you in the glory and the peace of the One Creator. Rejoice in the love/light, and go forth in the power of the One Creator. In joy, we leave you. Adonai.

We have free-will to determine for ourselves if  the Law of One is the revelatory message delivered by a divine messenger.  The contact lasted from January 1981 to March 15, 1984 and was recorded and documented. The transcript contains over 2360 questions and answers in 106 sessions with a scientific and metaphysical vocabulary with a searchable database available free to all.

everything-800x737 (1)For me the Law of One provides insight on something else that occurred  38 years earlier, when thirteen ancient books, called “codices,” containing over fifty texts, was discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. Known as the Nag Hammadi Scriptures, scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, 114 secret sayings of Jesus,  and the Gospel of Truth  and many more thought to be destroyed by early Christianity. The texts were translated in the 1970’s and are available today.  I have been studying the Gospel of Thomas for years and it was difficult to understand until I began studying the Law of One. It helped with the interpretation of the 114 secret teachings of Jesus and other sacred text, including the Bible.  It simply provides a different and refreshing new perspective on what we have been taught. Of course today, 2000 years later, many refuse to believe they may hold any value because they were not canonized by the Catholic Church, and actually labeling them heresy.  But interestingly Father Francis Tiso, a very controversial Priest, talks about our divine spark in this video.

We have the world at our fingertips to explore new and exciting ways to discover, connect The_Ra_Material_-_The_Law_of_One_-_Quote_-_Spirituality_Metaphysics_Spiritual_Heart_Chakras_Love_Compassion_86and love our Creator.  It all starts by looking within and loving others as you love yourself, love all of nature, and service to others. Realize your thoughts, emotions and actions allow you to become more aware of your true nature. Meditation, contemplation and prayer are the gateway to understanding the higher self; connecting with Infinite Intelligence, our true nature.

Growing Spiritually

Spiritual growth is why we are here. It is a lifetime endeavor of seeking the truth and to know our true-selves. We live in a world that is not what it seems and the physical and metaphysical worlds are inseparable. There is a vibrating constant energetic motion 0a9b9a69447b265abd17d51c39eabe50within all things called Qi or prana, depending on your culture . We are energetic beings radiating positive and negative energy with our thoughts, emotions and actions creating our reality, and our unruly minds control it. There are distortions and confusions that add to the unruliness. We have been programmed since birth regarding our belief systems. There are 7 billion people in this world radiate energy and we as a collective, created our world.

Spiritual growth is listening and trusting your higher- self. We all have guides or angels if we pay attention. We all have the gift of discernment or intuition, we just have to learn to trust ourselves.

Daily meditation, even if it is just five minute will help calm the mind and in time, provide a path the the higher self. There is b0979c556c4ca95796ea254343c2464fno one method of meditation better than another. 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.”

Once a person realizes the divine energetic field they begin to experience the energy 682b863845642d1e1e21f79caf51d1bc--buddha-zen-buddhist-quotesfields of nature including plants, animals and humans. You feel more love and compassion to all living things. As you grow, so will your awareness, your purpose and understanding. The Chinese sage Lao Tzu “ A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”

Jesus Secret sayings and the Law of One may provide additional insight and understanding for those who are interested.

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.

 

 

 

 

The Gnostics, the True Christians?

Gnosticism is one of the most fascinating and perplexing phenomena in western  theological history.   At the heart was the Greek word gnosis meaning,  “Knowledge or Direct knowledge of God”.  Existing far before its Christian descendants, Gnosis in Classical Greek meant true knowledge or wisdom depending on which ancient slide_3philosopher one reads. According to Plato, reality as perceived by the five senses is merely the surface of a highly complex and structured system. The act of seeing and recognizing this system Plato calls “ideas.” A key element in his philosophy, which would later transfer to Gnosticism and Gnostic, is the  concept that every human had a previous and thorough understanding of the structures of reality. Unfortunately, this knowledge was somehow lost. The reclaiming of this knowledge through the comprehension of reality underlying structures is Gnosis.

Gnosis in the first century was a quiet movement, adapting to the situations and locations of the societies it encountered. From early Christian literature, there is an impression that Gnosis was a threat to subvert Christianity, even though there seems to be no unified front of Gnosis during this time. The Gnostics were just a variety of independent, small sects that on the whole seem very different from each other. However, these different sects even debated the same metaphysical,  cosmologic, soteriological, and ethical themes as their more mainstream Christian counterparts.  Gnostics were the early movement of Christianity and lost the early E9F625CB-1D92-43E3-A3FC-33CC72001CE7Christian struggle to define orthodoxy.  

So who were the Gnostics?  Irenaeus of Lyon, a bishop in the late 2nd century was an enemy of the Gnostics whom he called heretics.  Irenaeus claimed that a single true Christianity originated with Jesus  and the apostles. In his view other groups, such as the Gnostics, may claim to be Christians, but they were false deviations for the one true Christianity, and all competing Christians were heretics.  Today we know Christianity was diverse from the very beginning.  Even the original apostles did not agree on a single Christian message.

One of the most striking features of the Gnostic myth as Irenaeus tells it is that the God of Genesis is  lower than the ultimate God and is arrogant, ignorant and evil. He is hostile to humans beings because humans beings have a share of the divine spirit that belongs to the  higher God.  The real name of the god who created this world is Ialdabaoth, a spiritual being who runs this universe like a tyrant.

This biblical father god of the Old Testament, also known as Yahweh or Jehovah, was hostile to human beings when he AdamEve-600x397commanded Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, preventing them from knowing the spiritual truth.

When Adam and Eve eat from the tree, they gain gnosis, knowledge of the true God.  Eve was  encouraged to eat the fruit from a female deity  known as Sophea, (Wisdom).   As human beings continue to see true spiritual knowledge,  Yahweh grows jealous of their devotion to the higher God and causes a flood to wipe out humanity.  The higher God,  Universal Intelligence, saves Noah and his family from the Yahweh evil plot.

Finally, human beings begin to lose the knowledge that Adam and Eve gain when they ate from the tree, but Universal Intelligence sends Jesus to restore this lost gnosis and rescue them from Yahweh and his fellow rulers. 5a4da62576d47c9081ee29e510cd504e

The Gnostic Version of the Garden of Eden is much like the Sumerian Tablets and  the Law of One Yahweh is mentioned 19 times and agrees with much of what the Gnostics said about the God of the Old Testament.

Orthodox Christianity created the idea of heresy to condemn the Gnostics quest for higher knowledge because of the different belief system. Early Christians wanted a single harmonious system and considered themselves as a single body of Christ and did not want any division. Overtime, people who followed the Gnostics were considered godless and imperious members of a school of thought and therefore heretics. Some in the Christian religion still believe that today. The destruction of their sacred texts was inevitable, so some hid them in caves and various other places so they could not be found.

In 1945, one of the most important archaeological discoveries in the 20th century occurred. Thirteen ancient codices containing over 50 texts of Gnostic works were found in caves in Upper Egypt untouched by scribes. All of these can be found in the Nag Hammadi Library.

The discovery in 1945 provides a new and refreshing school of thought about spiritualitygnostic-christ-1024x791 and Jesus message. The discovery also came at a time when it could be shared with the world and not suppressed as it was for the last twenty centuries. Jesus is a teacher of wisdom and understanding, speaking in metaphors and parables of love and enlightenment. Much different from the sin and repentance as the Church teaches. Since the discovery and publications, the Gospel of Thomas has been the most celebrated of the 50 ancient texts discovered in 1945.

 Jesus said in saying 5 of the Gospel of Thomas,  “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”  Have we come to a time when all the secrets of the world are manifesting?  Gnosticism was not confined to the Christians but is part of the belief systems of Sufism and the Saints of India and other eastern mystics. Gnosticism is not only alive but reemerging in a world that needs much love and wisdom.

Jesus Secret Sayings 23-27

The early Christians, specifically  the Gnostics,  believed a divine spark existed within us and our purpose was to find our way home. There was a mystical poem, believed to be written in the 1st or 2nd  century.  It is about us and is viewed by many as one of the greatest Gnostic scriptures ever composed.  In the Hymn of the Pearl, we are spirits lost in a world of matter and forgetful of our true origin. It is gnostic tale of salvation, of sleeping in error and awakening to Light of quest not only for the pearl but for the benefit of possessing the pearl, a return to the Light.

In the beginning of the 1st century there were many sects of Christian beliefs and all lost out in the struggle with orthodoxy. Christians faced persecutions  in the 1st, 2nd and even the third centuries.  Many Christians were to face torture and death because they refused to worship the Roman state gods. Some Christians recanted their faith while others went to their death following Jesus’ example.  

In 325, the first Council of Nicea began to canonize the bible, doing away with all other versions of Christianity,  calling it heresy.     Apparently the Romans hijacked true Christianity and transformed it into what we have today, both Catholic and Protestant religions.  Many believe the  Gnostics were the true Christians  and were teaching Jesus true message.   There are many of Jesus sayings  in the New Testament that closely resemble Gnostic thought. 

Jesus said in Luke 17:21, nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.”  or  when Jesus was  challenged and charged with blasphemy when he  said he was the Son of God, when he said  In John 10:34 “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”?  or in  John 14:12  “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.” “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. In  Matthew 6:22  Jesus said” When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light.” 

Heaven is within our midst, We are Gods,  we can heal as Jesus, our bodies fill with light when our eye is healthy,  is not something orthodox christianity teaches.  Jesus said in the Gospel of Thomas,  if we listen to our leaders, the birds and fish will proceed us to the kingdom of heaven. Instead, he said to look within ourselves as well as outside and then we will know our true selves.  Some believe the Gospel of Thomas was composed anywhere from  40 AD to 100 AD. 

Last time we left off with Saying 22 in the Gospel of Thomas. In saying 23 Jesus said, “I shall choose you, one out of a thousand, and two out of ten thousand, and they shall stand as a single one.”  

From earliest times Messengers of the Light have come forth from the True God in order to assist humans in their quest for Gnosis.  Jesus was telling us there will  be men and women  trying  to explain the truth. Each will be standing alone, spreading the word but in the end stand united. For each person, it starts by looking  within. 

(24) His disciples said to him, “Show us the place where you are, since it is necessary for us to seek it.” 
He said to them, “Whoever has ears, let him hear. There is light within a man of light, and he lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, he is darkness.” 

 There will be men and women that will be awakened and will understand the true message of Jesus . And this message will spread the wisdom and  knowledge to the people worldwide. If humanity can positively change and take over this wisdom, knowledge and truth,  the world will change.  If humanity cannot change and see the light then humanity will be in darkness. 

(25) Jesus said, “Love your brother like your soul, guard him like the pupil of your eye.”

Love was Jesus message and he is telling us to love all people,  as you love yourself and your siblings as your spirit. All people are equal in life with no  exceptions. 

(26) Jesus said, “You see the mote in your brother’s eye, but you do not see the beam in your own eye. When you cast the beam out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to cast the mote from your brother’s eye.”

Do not judge or try to change other people because we have to work on ourselves.  What you become, is what we have created with your thoughts, emotions and actions. 

(27) Jesus said, “If you do not fast as regards the world, you will not find the kingdom. If you do not observe the Sabbath as a Sabbath, you will not see the father.”

If you believe in and focus on the physical  world, you will never find the metaphysical world or you true self.  In  metaphysical  world we have another dimension, referred to as heaven.  In order to  find the dimension we have to detach   from the physical world .  Take time to meditate, contemplate and pray and discover your true self and you will find God is just a heartbeat away. 

 
 

 

Conversation with God

Our perception and understanding of God is based  on our religious beliefs and upbringing. The belief system we are born into is normally where we stay.   It will vary from person to person.

I try to imagine and comprehend the magnitude of the Infinite Divine Energy we have named God.  I abandoned the concept of the judgemental God of the Abrahamic religions years ago and consider God’s Divine Energy encompasses all and love as the life pulse. We are all players in the game of life and may have a bigger impact on our world than we will ever know. It is always a challenge when reading sacred texts, realizing man has has somehow tampered with most. The purpose is either one of control or an effort to explain something more clearly. Either way we are here to figure it out for ourselves and the answer may be within each of us, just a heartbeat away.

I remember I was having doubts about my spiritual journey,  and just wanted confirmation, something to give me a sign to continue.   So one day last year in 2018,  there  was little or no chance of rain.  During meditation I just wanted some evidence because sometimes the spiritual path is a lonely journey. I asked for rain, any amount for that day, just to let me know I was not alone. Afterwards, about 30 minutes later, I was sitting outside. Nothing was really happening. Then clouds started to form, which was not a big deal. Then a little thunder and few drops of rain started coming down. I felt indescribable joy. It really was happening. Then it started to rain and it rained five inches in 30-45 minutes. The news reported a cloudburst happened in a one square mile area and I was at the center.

We live in physical and metaphysical worlds, inseparable yet most of the time we realize only the physical.  How many times have you spoken to God, perhaps in a prayer or meditation or just a discussion, and something happened based on that conversation. At first we may rule it a coincidence, but we have to remember  we are an inseparable part of the Universal Consciousness . We are limited in the physical world  by our five senses; see, feel, hear, taste and smell. Our metaphysical world is unseen or under the veil.  Awareness of the  metaphysical world, the  unseen world, is helpful in understanding  the Divine Energy that encompasses all.  Our physical world is shaped by the positive and negative energy of our thoughts,  emotions and actions.  When we look at the physical world in isolation, we miss much of what is happening not only to the universe but within ourselves. Perhaps that is where we find God, that Divine Spark or energy  in each of us; part of the  Divine Universal Energy, Universal Consciousness.

God is just a heartbeat away and you can have a conversation anytime you choose. Trusting God is trusting yourself. Realize who you are; know you are part of this creation in your every thought, emotion and action.

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

Meditation, a Powerful State of Mind

 We are a world community connected by the internet. Science is now proving what many already knew, meditation has powerful benefits.  It cannot only change the way we think, but we can learn of the power within as well. Meditation is about calming the mind, training yourself to think in a different way, connecting us to our metaphysical world. Our thoughts, emotions and actions create vibrations of energy affecting not only you but those around you as well.  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,” reduces crime. So much so that Merseyside, England, went from being the third highest recorded crime rate to the lowest ranked 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.
Bruce H. Lipton, PhD  groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology, radically changes 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.  
 
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
The Key to Manifestation with Gregg Braden
We are energetic beings. Our thoughts, feelings and actions have created our reality. You should realize we have been programmed since birth by our education, media, political and religious systems. All have played an integral part of who we are and who we become. But if  we created it, we can change it.  It starts with the thought; what we think everyday.  We have 50K to 90K thoughts in a day and 90% are repeat of the day before. All that energy being wasted on our monkey minds and going into the world. Are your thoughts  positive or negative, was there doubt, fear, anger, anxiety, or was their love and compassion.   
 

We all have a morning ritual. We wake up in our own way, some begin thinking about the day ahead. Schedules, appointments, meetings,  kids, family, all part of our daily lives. Before you start your day,  consider taking a few moment to have a conversation with God, in your own way.  The ancient Essenes taught that  prayer was the feeling.  Feel it from your heart and then sit quietly and listen.  Feel the gratitude and appreciation for the opportunity to serve and quietly reflect your intention for the day;  radiate love and compassion to all you meet. Visualize your day.  

Imagination and visualization are a great tools.  Mainstream has defined imagination as” the  faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.  The ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.”

Imagination is our ability to understand the mind, and is not limited to our physical body. When we awaken, we begin to understand, feel and recognize all the subtle  energetic rhythms of the life around us; moving within  our energetic field. It takes time and awareness. 

Meditation Warriors is a group that was created with the intention of positively changing our world.  The group provides encouragement for a daily meditation practice. Meditation can be standing, walking, sitting, and laying down.  It is a about changing the way we think, a new way of thinking and  how we see the world.   Practicing mindfulness during the day is being aware of your thoughts, feelings and actions with your focus on what you are doing.  Moving meditation, like qigong or tai chi is helpful for cultivating energy throughout the body. Lying meditation can be done before you rise and before you go to sleep at night and even when you wake up during the night.  Sitting meditation for just 5 to 20 minutes a day with the right intentions sends positive vibrations into the world.  There is no right or wrong way to meditate.  The  Kirtan Kriya method may be of some assistance for those with the real unruly mind.

We are not of different races, but one race, the human race, with a divine power within each of us. United we are one and could positively change our world! 

 
 If there is to be peace in the world, There must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbors. If there is to be peace between neighbors, There must be peace in the home. If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart. chinese philosopher – Lao Tzu

Imagine

Imagine a world  with love, compassion,  peace, and tranquility.  A world with no sickness, fear or hate and  in tune with nature. Sounds like a song.    We are learning our thoughts, emotions and actions affect not only us but the world around us.

Zoroastrianism, one of the oldest religions in the world,  believed all events of the world are based on cause and effects, teaching the three principles,  good reflection, good word, and good deed.  Science now tells us 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.  We live in an energy field, a mental and spiritual Universe, with our thoughts and emotions creating our reality.

With that in mind, Buddha teachings become more clear when he said “Guard your thoughts, words and deeds . These three disciplines will speed you along the path of wisdom.” and “The wise can direct their thoughts, subtle and elusive, wherever they choose: a trained mind brings health and happiness”. Just two of many teachings.

Pure positive thoughts are not only  good for us, but for everyone and everything including nature. It is the only way to create balance within ourselves, in all people and nature.  Imagine people of all faiths,  religions and belief systems,  dedicating  15 minutes each day, a time of their own choosing  to radiating positive and loving thoughts using the following intention.

Our love and light illuminates the darkest corners and hearts of humanity and the world in which we live. Our love radiates from  our very core,  filling our world with love and compassion, people helping  each other, our rivers and waters are sparkling clean, our planet is clean from pollution and our air is fresh and clean .  There is no sickness, starvation, greed or anger, only love and compassion.

Our goal is to positively change our world with the tools we have been given through daily meditation. Meditation Warriors are group working on that purpose. Through a daily meditation practice, and focusing on the daily attentions we can change our world through love, the absolute power.

Sitting in a comfortable position, breathe naturally and place the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth, creating an energy circuit. Slowly take deep breaths, focusing on clearing your mind. As the mind slows down, clearing all thoughts, begin visualizing love not only from the mind but the heart making the two one. You’re connecting with the source, feeling the love and compassion.  Your mind is not in or outside your body, it is unlimited.  You become aware of the light within your chest, our life source, radiating from the center of our body, shining brightly. It is the life to our heart beat, our breath, and our essence.   Each person should go at their own pace  and method remembering,  meditation is God’s gift and gateway to find our way home.
