Haim Eshed, the 87-year-old former head of Israel’s Defense Ministry’s space directorate for just under 30 years said humans have been in contact with extraterrestrials from a “galactic federation.” He said cooperation agreements were signed between the species, and lists an underground base in the depths of Mars where there are American astronauts and intelligent extraterrestrial representatives. He also claimed governments are keeping it quiet until humanity is ‘ready, until the people of Earth ‘evolve and reach a stage where we will understand what space and spaceships are’.
Perhaps what Haim Eshed hopes to achieve is preparing humanity for extraterrestrial contact. There was another contact in 1981, when three members of the L/L research, Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot, Carla Rueckert, a devoted Christian , and James McCarty, the scribe and sole survivor today, received a narrow band transmission. The transmission was from a social memory complex named Ra, a member of the Confederation of Planets.
When asked the Question “Do any of the UFOs that are presently reported come from other planets here at this time, or do you have this knowledge? Ra answers I am one of the members of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator. There are approximately fifty-three civilizations, comprising approximately five hundred planetary consciousness complexes in this Confederation. This Confederation contains those from your own planet who have attained dimensions beyond your third. It contains planetary entities within your solar system, and it contains planetary entities from other galaxies. It is a true Confederation in that its members are not alike, but allied in service according to the Law of One”.
In the initial contact 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 spirit, which you call seeking the truth. We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same.” Known as Law of One, the contact lasted from January 1981 to March 15, 1984. It 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.
Many may say it is a hoax, just like Haim Eshed, 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 . In 1 John 4:1 of the New Testament says “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether 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.”
With the events of 2020 and still more to come, we have learned the world is not as it seems. We live in an inseparable physical and metaphysical worlds. Perhaps when Haim Eshed said the secrets of extraterrestrials are being keep quiet until the people of Earth “evolve and reach a stage where we will understand what space and spaceships are”, is happening now.
It has been said The Law of One is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”. We are all on our own spiritual journey and for those who are interested in a overview of the Law of One, can be found on youtube by Aaron Abke
Have you thought about why the year 2020 has been such an eye opener for the world? Perhaps we should consider the year 2020, the year of vision, our wake-up call. It is an opportunity to see what is right before our eyes. Our hearts have grown callous, we do not really listen with our ears. We have closed our eyes and hearts to the truth. Otherwise we might see and hear what is right in front of us. When we begin to understand with our hearts, then our healing process begins.
We have ravaged Mother Earth with chemicals and pollution. There is not a person on the planet that has not contributed. There has never been a time in our history, as we know it, when negative and positive energies have been so prevalent. It is not just Mother Earth trying to wake up humanity, but also the Universe. Most are living only in the physical world, unaware of the spiritual world, not realizing how our thoughts, emotions and actions create our reality. When we live in fear, anger and despair, we are creating negative energies and all of us are responsible for the world we live it.
Humanity has not nurture and cared for Mother Earth or our fellow beings. It seems we have forgotten that all living entities such as plants, animals, and humans possess universal energy. That energy is the source of the circulating life force whose existence and properties are the basis of much Hindu and Chinese philosophy and medicine, known as prana or qi.
Covid19 is our catalyst to wake up and discover our true selves and realize we been enslaved by our belief systems. Since birth we have been indoctrinated by our culture, religions, education and even our political systems. We have been programmed to believe we are limited when, in reality, the only limitations we have is what we put on ourselves. We each have a divine gift of discernment, to distinguish spiritual truth. The Source, Universal Energy, what we understand as God, gave Jesus the power to heal. That Divine Source lives within each of us. 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”. Jesus message is clear. If we believe his message then we can do the same works as him.
We are eternal beings on a very long spiritual journey. This life, this dimension, is just one school for us to learn the ways of love and wisdom. Not only are we attempting within each incarnation to balance and learn, but these lessons, as we call them, go on for millions of years based on our limited understanding. Each, reaching higher a dimension, graduating, then moving on until we unite with the Divine Source. It is important to understand that uniting with the Divine Source, means uniting in love with the Divine. The Divine Source is, love, the state of love. In order to unite, we have to transform ourselves into Love. The degree of transformation of one self, the level of consciousness, into the energy of emotional love and wisdom, is the measure of one’s spiritual evolution.
The world is not as it seems and this is our time to wake up and realize we are co-creators of our reality. The world is changing before our very eyes and it is a show you do not want to miss.
Today we are being bombarded with chaos providing catalyst that affect our thoughts, emotions and actions. This is an opportunity to elevate our lives and realize how our thoughts, emotions and actions affect us. The first step is to realize we are energetic beings. The human heart and brain each emit their own magnetic fields, The heart’s field is estimated to be 100 times more powerful than the brain. The seven chakras are aligned vertically along your back, from the top of your head to just below the bottom of your spine. Consider your thoughts, emotions and actions as energy. Thoughts not only creates our reality but those around us. To elevate your life, you should balance the energy centers.
It is interesting to note that the sixth chakra or energy center, also known as the third eye is also 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.” Jesus also said “ Truly, truly, I tell You, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. He was telling us to believe and understand his true message and we could perform the same good deeds. Balancing our energy centers will help with this endeavor.
According to 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 balance, understand and unblock our lower chakras. Each Chakra is a energy center. The 1st chakra, or red-ray is basic and fundamental. It is our survival mold and is blocked by fear. The second Chakra, or orange-ray is the emotional or personal energy center. We all have emotional issues to some degree that have to be dealt with. The third Chakra, or yellow-ray is what we call the ego. The ego can be a huge blockage for many people. The fourth Chakra, the heart chaka, known as the green-ray, is our understanding of universal love or compassion. That is our purpose to learn the ways of love and wisdom. The fifth Chakra, known as the blue-ray, is our understandings of ourselves and our communication with others.
The more blockages we have in our lower chakras the less flow of Intelligent Energy we receive. Our goal is to unblock our lower chakras to be able connect with Infinite Intelligence. Loving others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others; understand our thoughts, emotions, and actions create our reality; and meditation, contemplation and prayer are the gateway to Infinite Intelligence.
Another source is Dr Joe Dispenza, who 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. He talks about the Chakras or energy centers in this YouTube video that may be helpful.
We live in a world of distortions creating control, fear, anger, stress and greed. However love is the one emotion that will overcome all. In your own way, cultivate love in everything you do. Jesus said love your neighbor as you love yourself. According to the Law of One, our purpose on earth is to learn to balance love and wisdom and be of services to others. Within us all is the Christ Consciousness and together it will be a collective consciousness. Healing starts with the mind and the realization of the power within, a change from traditional thinking. It is just you, your higher self with help from Infinite Intelligence. The more divine energy of Love you generate, the more healing takes place not only you but collectively we can heal mother earth and we become one. It is time for people of all religions to understand the only thing that will save us is ourselves. In your own way, from your heart, pray, meditate and contemplate and bring God back into your life. You have free-will to choose by loving others as you love yourself, treat others as you would like to be treated, help those who need help is a wonderful start. Know the divine power within and be part of the great awakening.
It is interesting to note that in Law of One speaks of Mind control in 1981 in session 11.18▶Questioner: Then we have crusaders from Orion coming to this planet for mind control purposes. How do they do this?
Ra: I am Ra. As all, they follow the Law of One observing free will. Contact is made with those who call. Those then upon the planetary sphere act much as do you to disseminate the attitudes and philosophy of their particular understanding of the Law of One which is service to self. These become the elite. Through these, the attempt begins to create a condition whereby the remainder of the planetary entities are enslaved by their free will.
Many are seeking the truth and the meaning of our existence, to know our true selves. First, Dr. Bruce Lipton explains we have been programmed since birth. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we are and become. We have been guided daily through a world wide messaging system, vaccinations, GMO foods, pesticides and chemicals, as well as the air we breathe. It is a worldwide system of control that is keeping us sick, possibly with vaccination in the pretense of keeping us healthy and making it a better world. We have geoengineering under the pretense of global warming. Who controls these systems and why do they want control? The truth is so unbelievable for many that most will simply discard it!
Perhaps now, with the world wide panamedic regarding the COVID-19 known as the Coronavirus, it is not so unbelievable. What we have been told from the mainstream media and the truth are often different. Citizen reporters finds media is not truthful with COVID-19 reporting. Others tell us a much darker picture making it difficult to decipher.
Approximately 84 percent of the world populations go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places to seek divine guidance and the truth. The truth is elusive and there is a realization that all religions have some truth, but no religion has all the truth.
“Worldwide, more than eight-in-ten people identify with a religious group,” says a new comprehensive demographic study of more than 230 countries and territories conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life. “There are 5.8 billion religiously affiliated adults and children around the globe, representing 84 percent of the 2010 world population of 6.9 billion,” the analysis states.
Consider a relationship with God is the same as having a loving relationship with our families, friends, neighbors as well as everyone in the world, even our enemies. It’s about taking care of nature, Mother Earth and all its life sources. God is divine energy encompassing all things. The essence of God is within each of us and called by many names world wide; higher self, spirit, soul, rūḥ, Tao, chi, prana, kundalini and chakras to name a few. The Abrahamic Religions refer to the Holy Spirit of God which resides within the center of each of our eternal spirits as the voice of God and answers directly to God. The divine essence of God is within each of us waiting to be awakened.
Imagine your religion contains truths that can be used as stepping stones for the path of your spiritual journey, the higher truth. Religion has been used to divide us when it should unite us. One core belief of all religions is love, compassion, wisdom and service to others.
Like politics, religion can be changed by the people but again, most do not realize they have been program to believe what they have been taught at a very young age. In the video below, you see people from all walks of life – Jewish, Muslim, Christian, some religious, some secular. It is evident that the participants are moved by this experience. It is truly inspirational and emotional.
If only the world lived by one simple message Jesus was teaching, we can change our world, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ By honoring and respecting others’ beliefs and religions, not only will it bring us closer together, but closer to our Creator.
We can learn from each other. As an example, the energy centers in our bodies are known as Chakras, taught by the Hindus; Buddha teaches meditation, attachment and higher self; Taoism speaks of the Tao or Way, the path; Muslims, Christians and Jews are of the Abrahamic religions and provide their own set of dogma, doctrines and disciplines. Many people in these religions as well as people all over the world are discontent and express a longing to know the truth. Jesus or Yeshua, is known throughout the world as a spiritual leader, messiah, divine, prophet, Jewish preacher, religious leader, son of man, son of God and to some, even God. Jesus said in Luke 12:49-53 “I have come to set the world on fire.” Indeed he has; in all facets of our understanding and beliefs. For many, Jesus was the perfect spiritual mentor, someone who lived their life as the living embodiment of a true man of God.
We have learned from science, we are all spiritual beings with a body and mind made of electromagnetic energy. Our thoughts help create our reality through emotions. When you see someone walk into a room smiling or crying, you are affected by emotional vibrations. Negative and positive emotional vibrations control our lives and we become what we think.
Through meditation and reprogramming of what we have been taught since birth, we can better understand how to awaken that divine spark within. Father Francis Tiso, a very controversial Priest, talks about our divine spark in this video.
One should realize there is so much beyond our understanding, but perhaps now we have come to a time and place where we can begin to learn. The internet has given us the world at our fingertips. It began in 1983, and from there researchers began to assemble the “network of networks” that became the modern Internet. The online world then took on a more recognizable form in 1990, when computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web.
Now we can read sacred texts written centuries ago with the understanding that they were written for that specific time and place, including Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Muslim, Jewish, Christian and so much more. I think it is important to understand that any attempt to translate a sacred text from one language to another will involve some level of misunderstanding of the meaning, comprehension, and expression. That includes many texts today used in religions. In addition, it is important to realize what may resonate with me may not necessary work for you.
Other information started coming to light in the last few hundred years for those seeking the truth, such as source called Channeling. This Spirit science video provides more detail to this subject.
Emanuel Swedenborg(1688–1772) mystic and spiritual explorer inspired some the world’s greatest minds and souls such as Helen Keller, D.T. Suzuki, and Ralph Waldo Emerson just to name a few. His work through channeling, inspired everyday people searching for truths on their spiritual journey. This short video provides explains the essential connection of the physical and spiritual worlds.
The Oahspe Bible was published in 1882 produced by an American dentist, John Ballou Newbrough (1828–1891) through channelling.
Sometime between 1924 and 1955, Urantia, was published and believed to be channeled by unknown parties.
The Law of One was channelled from 1981-1984, recorded and documented over 2360 questions and answers in 106 sessions. The group was Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot, Carla Rueckert, a devoted Christian; , and James McCarty, the sole survivor today. The contact was made by an advanced extraterrestrial from the 6th dimension. Answers were given in a scientific and metaphysical vocabulary.
Channelling has been going on since ancients times, contact with divine entities. In the New Testament, there is discussion about testing the spirits. 1 John 4 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God. Are the discoveries divine intervention at a time we can communicate around the world instantly? Is the COVID-19 an act of God so we will come together as one?
The Law of One was published most recently and made available to everyone. In it, our purpose of existence is revealed as well as the consequences of our behavior. It uses a more metaphysical, scientific and complex vocabulary to explore some of the same concepts we have learned in our religious systems. It explores and explains the human race and our past, present; and provides us with a glimpse into the future. Simply stated, it is about love, light, wisdom, free-will, and seeking the truth.
Scott Mandelker PhD, combines eclectic Western psychology with intensive study of Eastern religions, and followed upon years of formal training in US and Asian Buddhist temples said this material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”. His YouTube videos cover the entire Law of One session providing his reading and understanding.
The Law of One is an advanced approach to our belief systems, what we call seeking the truth. Every religion has a law, but was this message to clarify those Laws? Was the Law of One sent at a time so it could not be changed by man? The three people that made contact dedicated their lives to provide this information to the world. They did not profit or gain popularity. The entire three years of their work is available free on the internet.
We have arrived at a point in time where we as humans, “body, mind and spirit” regardless of religion, can come together, with love, compassion, wisdom and be a service to others. We should understand the differences and look at those differences with love and understanding. The path for one may not the be the path of another by divine design. Remember, religion is just one path, but God is is always with you. isn’t it time for all religions to quit judging and condemning others. There are many paths to the same destination and by joining together as One we can create the world for our children and their children. It starts with just one and the ultimate teacher is God, who is closer to you than your heart beat. There is not a better teacher.
Please share this or explain in your own words to other so that the energy of your love, light, joy and unity will radiate to others. Now is the time to stand together as One.
Being aware of our true nature and the general science of the nature of disease and it’s cure is a great start to become a Spiritual healer. The more we increase our understanding of our true nature, the more healing energy will begin to flow through our body energy centers. Then we will be more likely to heal ourselves, and then perhaps even assist others. A good example is Dr Joe Dispenza, who healed himself after breaking 6 vertebrae in his back after 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.
We should be aware the healer does not heal others, instead the crystallized healer is a channel for Intelligent energy which offers an opportunity to another person so they may heal themselves. As we begin to discover our true nature, spiritual healing begins with the realization there is a Source, Universal Intelligence of pure sacred energy, that connects us all. Realizing we are co-creators with our thoughts, emotions and actions not only create our reality but those around us, is essential for the healing process.
We are subject to three types of diseases that affect the body, mind and Spirit and all are interrelated. Disease normally occurs during recurring 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 ignorance born of cosmic delusion which cause man to forget their perfect divine nature and focus on the physical world. Ignorance creates imbalances between body, mind and spirit.
Our body, mind, and spirit have a life force we can identified as electromagnetic energy or energy. Science claims that the heart electromagnetic energy can be detected and measured several feet from the body. In eastern cultures, this energy is known as chi or qi, ki, prana, and chakras.
Chakras are the bodies seven energy centers. The healing process begins with clearing blockages and balancing our energy centers. The first Chakra, at the base of the spine is known as the red-ray is basic and fundamental. The second Chakra, or orange-ray is the emotional or personal energy center. The third Chakra, or yellow-ray is what we call the ego. The fourth Chakra, the heart chaka, known as the green-ray, is our understanding of universal love or compassion. The fifth Chakra, known as the blue-ray, is our understandings of ourselves and our communication with others. The sixth Chakra known as the pineal or indigo-ray center. Blockages in this center may experience a lessening the flow of intelligent energy for healing.
The more energy flowing through our energy centers the more active the pineal gland. Energy flows when we love others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others. We should be mindful that our thoughts, emotions and actions create our reality and those around us.
Jesus message to us was we all have the ability to heal if we believe what 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.”
When we discover our true nature the healing of the spirit begins. When we open our eye of wisdom by meditation, contemplation and prayer the physical and mental agonies are dispelled by the love and light of Infinite Intelligence. The 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.”
We all have the ability to heal ourselves, but do we have the will and desire. It starts with our thoughts, emotions and actions. Negative thoughts affect our body, mind and spirit, adversely affects our relationships and stops our spiritual evolution. Excessive negative thoughts can lead to severe anxiety or clinical depression, rebellion, and in extreme cases lead to self-harm or even harming others. Over 300 million people are affected by depression worldwide while around 800,000 people die from suicide globally each year and that is 1 death every 40 seconds.
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.
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, synagogues, 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 made 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 hymn 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”.
It 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 spirit, which 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 whether 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.
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 and 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.
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 within 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 no 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 fields 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.
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 philosopher 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 Christian 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 commanded 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.
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 spirituality 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.
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.
