The Way, The Tao, the Tao Te Ching

The Tao Te Ching is probably one of the wisest ancient books, reported to be written by the sage named Lao Tzu over 2500 years ago. It about living in unity with nature. With  81 chapters, it should be savored page by page, line by line, like good poetry-read, pondered and reread again.  One of the things I enjoy is comparing wisdom teachings of ancient sages and teachers.  Chapter  47  states: images (5)

Without going outside his door, one understands (all that takes
place) under the sky; without looking out from his window, one sees
the Tao of Heaven. The farther that one goes out (from himself), the
less he knows.

Therefore the sages got their knowledge without travelling; gave
their (right) names to things without seeing them; and accomplished
their ends without any purpose of doing so.

download (3)During ancient times as today, people believe they can gain the truth by visiting , churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other sacred places. Followers of Tao recognize that spirituality comes from within instead of searching the material world. The Way,  Infinite Intelligence also known as God,  cannot be comprehended by looking out a window or to travel any particular place. To master what is within each of us, one has to realize the power within. One has to know themselves to gain intuitive understanding and discernment. Jesus, Buddha and Krishna provided  their  teachings.

In the Gospel of Thomas  Jesus said “If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If images (3)they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.”

Buddha “ the Way is not in the sky; the Way is in the heart”

Krishna “With one’s heart focused on yoga and recognizing all things are equal, then you will see the self within- within all beings”

images-73.jpgTo me,  the message is know myself,  to look within and realize there is  far more than I can ever understand, a spirit of divine mystery.  Call it  consciousness, awakening, or divine spark,  it is pure energy that cannot be measured by science. We are spirits of  divine mystery, with unlimited power.    Unfortunately we have been buried in the material world,  making it difficult  to focus or even be aware of this potential power.  Infinite Intelligence sends guides, angels,  messengers, dreams and nature to get our attention.  When you pay attention, then the awakening begins.

Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.

Lao Tzu

The Message- Law Of One

“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.”

That was the initial contact with  L/L Research by an advanced extraterrestrial from the sixth density or dimension,  named RA, the humble messenger The_Ra_Material_-_The_Law_of_One_-_Quote_-_Spirituality_Metaphysics_Spiritual_Infinite_Eternal_Creation_86b (1)of the Law .  The three members, Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot; Carla Rueckert,the instrument RA used for channel known as “tuned trance telepathy”, a devoted Christian; , and James McCarty, the sole survivor today.

Channeling was something  I was not really familiar or understood.  Then I realized Channeling has been going on since biblical days. Parts of the Old Testament says kill the messenger and the New Testament says do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God.  Even science is pushing to prove if channeling is real based on Helané Wahbeh, IONS Director of Research, Institute of Noetic Science.The_Ra_Material_-_The_Law_of_One_-_Quote_-_Spirituality_Metaphysics_Spiritual_Love_86.jpg-nggid03668-ngg0dyn-290x0-00f0w010c010r110f110r010t010

The contact lasted from 1981 to 1984  totalling 106 sessions.  Each session started ” I am Ra. I greet you in the love and the light of the Infinite Creator. I communicate now”  and would end  “I am Ra. I leave you in the love and the light of the One Infinite Creator. Go forth, then, rejoicing in the power and the peace of the One Creator. Adonai.”

The group asked approximately 2360 questions and RA provided answers, careful not to infringe on free-will.  The 2360 questions and answers were recorded and documented. This series of channeling was the first time in human history when real-time questions and answers with a non-human entity has been recorded.

We are entities of infinite worth.

The Law of One is so rich, vast and esoteric with the some of the same conceptual teachings all religions were meant to teach.  According to RA ,  “The information buried within has to do with a deeper understanding of love and light, and the attempts of infinite intelligence through many messengers to teach/learn those entities of your sphere”.

Jesus, Buddha, Moses, Chakras, our energy centers and   Balancing  and so much more The_Ra_Material_-_The_Law_of_One_-_Quote_-_Spirituality_Metaphysics_Spiritual_Heart_86are discussed.   The negative group called Orion  have been attempting to enslave  the world populations for centuries. Just consider our world today.  We are in a spiritual battle within ourselves and outside forces. The battle within can only be won by the self.    Positive vs negative,  love and compassion vs control and fear. We have free-will to choose to either stay asleep or wake up.  Waking up is shedding the old belief systems and being opened minded to the same but with a slant on what we have always heard. It’s an effort to look within yourself, meditate, study and seek the truth, a life long journey.

Albert Einstein, German Theoretical Physicist said “Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe—a spirit vastly superior to that of man.”

 

 

 

 

 

Is Love the Divine Law?

A Divine law is believed to come directly from God.  But is it a law as we know it, such as  thou shalt not kill, steal, lie or is it more of a physic law. Or perhaps, we simply use the word law because otherwise  it is beyond our understanding.  Love,  as we understanding it,  would  certainly curtail any negative action against anyone we loved.

Our Spiritual teachers, Jesus,  Krishna, Buddha and Lao Tzu and many more provided their wisdom to help answer that question. god is love

Jesus said love your neighbor as yourself.

Buddha said out of the abundance of your heart, cultivate love and compassion for all beings.

Lao Tzu said nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself.

Krishna said those find the “Way” are those who have love and forgiveness in their hearts.

.  The ancient Greeks used 7 words to define the different states of love:
  • Storge: natural affection, the love you share with your family.
  • Philia: love  you have for friends.
  • Eros: sexual and erotic desire kind of love (positive or negative)
  • Agape: unconditional love, or divine love
  • Ludus:  playful love, like childish love or flirting.
  • Pragma: long-standing love. The love in a married couple.
  • Philautia: the love of the self (negative or positive)
The 18th century mystic and spiritual explorer Emanuel Swedenborg said,  “man knows that there is such a thing as love, but he does not know what love is. He knows that there is such a thing as love from common speech, as when it is said, he loves me, a king loves his subjects, and subjects love their king, a husband loves his wife, a mother her children, and conversely; also, this or that one loves his country, his fellow citizens, his neighbor; and likewise of things abstracted from person, as when it is said, one loves this or that thing Although the word love is so universally used, hardly anybody knows what love is.”
Love is the most powerful emotion we can experience, a force to be reckoned with.  Perhaps that is why love is considered the one  “Divine Law”, the emotion that conquers all emotions.
We all have difficulties in expressing universal love or compassion.  According to the Law of One,  we are here to evolve spiritually through healing and balancing by learning the ways of love with wisdom.   It is about healing,  by knowing yourself, accepting  yourselves and other selves and knowing we are all  part of the Creator.
Session  5.2  provides the steps for the healing process.
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 the Law of One  material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”.   You will find his understanding and reading of session 5 on YouTube

 

 

We all have our own experiences, observations, opinions, etc., about love that should be shared with the world in your own way.   May the force be with you.

Our Life Journey

We have been chosen to be on earth at this moment in time. Over 7 billion strong, from every culture, from all over the world, humans have populated the earth since the beginning. By the year 1 A.D. the Earth’s population was an estimated 200 million. It hit the billion mark in 1804 and doubled by 1927. This short YouTube video depicts human population through time.

Consider why have we been chosen,  what is our purpose and why at this time?  Those are questions only you can answer. For me,  it is a journey to seek the truth.  According to Jesus, each of us are from the light and the light we will return. Religion was to help us find our way home. Unfortunately man, through the ages inserted their beliefs and/or understandings  and over time,  became a tool for religious leaders to control the masses, attempting to take away the power of free-will.   images (3)

Beliefs systems have been followed by mankind for centuries. Archeological evidence indicates the Indus Valley civilization flourished between 3000-1500 BCE and appears to have contributed significantly to the development of Hinduism. Starting in Axial Age, approximately 800-200 BCE, is a period of time unprecedented developments. Zoroaster, Jeremiah, Isaiah, the Buddha, Confucius, Vardhamana Marhavira, Pythagoras, Heraclitus, acb29fa16d8d594d4d6cee85cddc2869Socrates, Plato and Aristotle all produced the intellectual and moral matrix out of which the world religions were born. Today, there  are countless Religions  and belief systems.  Most followers never venture  from the religion in which they were born. In that sense, religion may hold a person back from truly discovering the truth for themselves.

Consider each of us have been chosen because we have a divine light or spark within waiting to be ignited and our purpose is ignite that spark in our own way.  Our teachers provided insight.

Jesus said, ” When I came among humanity I opened the door to the Way. I showed you the path that you must follow. You will find it within yourself.”

Lao Tzu said  “He who say they have found the Way, have not. That which is eternal cannot be spoken of. It lies within.”images (17)

Buddha said  “Seeking within, you will find stillness. Here there is no more fear or attachment-only joy”

Krishna said “When the mind becomes still, when thinking ceases, this is the beginning of the supreme path.”

The world population is  larger than ever. Could it be the reincarnation of past lives The_Ra_Material_-_The_Law_of_One_-_Quote_-_Spirituality_Metaphysics_Spiritual_Infinite_Eternal_Creation_86bmanifesting at a time,  when learning  is at our fingertips.

Jesus said in the Gospel of Thomas “Know what is in front of your face and what is hidden from you will be disclosed. There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. ”

Look within and it may be revealed that you have been chosen to be on earth at this time to learn the ways of love and be of service to others. The only Way is your path as you seek to find your way home.

 

Seeking the Truth

Spirituality is much like a newborn baby. First, we  learn to sit up, then crawl, stand, walk, run, and talk. As we become more aware of our thoughts, emotions, actions and the world around us, we begin to grow spiritual, at our own way and pace.

Buddha said, “The past does not exist. The future does not exist.  One should concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

For me,  I always had a connection to nature and felt it was alive and talking to me at a very young age. I grew up in a Christian community, but Religion never really helped me answer questions of who I was, why am I here or where am I going. I could not understand how God could save one group that believed one way and condemn another group that believed another way.  I learned later was man way of control.

By studying other religions, I began to realize religion as a whole, has kept man from truthly seeking God from within. Religion has humanity believing  you have to be in a tribe or group in order to find God. Reported  Near Death experiences and stories from Children about reincarnation also provided a great deal of insight.

images (27)My first real discovery was  The Gospel of Thomas, labeled as a Gnostic text,  was 114 saying of Jesus, left out of the new testament as well as other texts. The Discovery was made in 1945 in Egypt and now can be found  in the Nag Hammadi Library . It first became available to the public in 1975.    The “living Jesus” in these tests speaks of illusion and enlightenment not of sin and repentance like Jesus of the new testament. Jesus teaching were much deeper than what we were taught. Instead of coming to save us from sin, he comes as a guide and messenger who opens access to spiritual understanding, much like Buddha and Lao Tzu. Verse 50 in the Gospel of Thomas,  Jesus said,  “ If they ask you “Where are you from?” reply to them “We have come from the place where light is produced from itself. It came and revealed itself in their image.”  If they ask you “Are you it?” reply to them, “We are his sons. We are chosen ones of the living father.”  If they ask you “What is the sign within you of your father?” reply to them, Have “It is movement. It is rest.”

Then I discovered the Law of One, an event that occurred from 1981 to 1984 and again speaks of  love and light.  It put Jesus’ message in prospective, revealing our purpose of existence and the consequences of our behavior. It shares some of the same concepts we learned in our religious systems, but in a more metaphysical, scientific, and complex vocabulary. More importantly it put everything into perspective. The Infinite Intelligence or Creator is pure energy encompassing all. mistic46_00_small

Have each of us been chosen to be here  at this time and place?  Is our purpose to raise the planet vibration of love and light and if so how?  Love others as you would love yourself and being of service to others. We all have higher entities as guides trying to communicate with those who are seeking the truth, just as Jesus said, seek and you shall find.

Different translations of the Gospel of Thomas can be found at Gnostic.Org . In addition  Scott Mandelker PhD. has  34 videos including the Gospel of Thomas in an Introduction to Gnostic Studies playlist will provide the seeker with additional insight.

Our Spiritual Evolution

I have a dear friend with a Ph.D. in Linguistics, he told me language for each person has an emotional connection to words and phrases, and they are different from person to person.  Each of us speaks, listens, and thinks in our own special language; we have been shaped by our culture, experiences, profession, personality, morals and attitudes, but one thing we do have in common;  we are here to evolve spiritually in our own way. images (45)

I like to think, being a spiritual person on the positive path, is one whose highest priority is to love others as they love themselves; cares and helps people, animals and the planet; knows that we are all One, consciously attempts to honor this Oneness; and meditates, contemplates and prays to stay connected, and goes deeper in understanding the self. Most of  humanity is on the positive path.

A person on the negative path is someone who loves and cares only about the self; controlling others by any means possible.

Consider, we have choices everyday, positive or negative, also known as  good and evil. Our thoughts, emotions and actions are part of these choices. Positive thinking generates positive emotions resulting in positive actions.  Negative thinking works the same way. We all have these thoughts, we are human.

According to the Law of One,  each one of us are here to evolve spiritually, to choose a path of either positive or negative polarity, to help build our lives according to a Divine plan that is beyond our understanding.   Perhaps Jesus  was trying to tell us the same thing in his message of seek and you shall  find. His teachings are much deeper than what religion teaches.  The personal realization of truth is the science behind all sciences.  But for most people, religion has devolved to a matter of of belief only.  Some believe in Catholicism, others Protestant, others assert the Jewish or Hindu or Muslim or Buddhist is the true way.  The science of religion identifies the universal truth common to all,  the basis for religion.

India’s teaching of Raja Yoga, the science of the soul, provides similar methods to balance the self as discussed in the Law of One.  Other teachers also taught us to look within. Lao Tzu said in the Tao Te Ching, “Wise are they who center their hearts on the inner essence of things, not on outer appearances”  In the Dialogue of the Savior Jesus said  ” light comes through the mind and illuminates the whole body. When all things within you are integrated your light will shine everywhere ”  And Buddha said in the The Lankavatara Sutra,  “In order to eliminate the discriminating mind, there must be a complete turning around of one being at the deepest level of consciousness”.

images (27)Infinite Intelligence or Creator, known as God and other names in different religions, is pure energy and is simply beyond our understanding. As we evolve spiritually and seek the truth, there will be a realization the world is not as it seems.  We all have been chosen to be here to learn and understand the ways of love and wisdom. We have been given special gifts to discover and apply them in our world today.  Our job is to positively raise the planet vibration by applying these seven steps in our daily lives.

1. Love Infinite Intelligence

2. Love yourself

3. Love others as you love yourself

4. Love earth and nature.

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

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

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

Know yourself,  accept yourself  and realize we are all one with Infinite Intelligence.  Our Journey will be different paths, different understandings but the progression is one.

Law of One and the Seven Practices

2. PRACTICE TWO: LOVE YOURSELF – Apply the practice of Unity with All-One as an extension towards loving, honoring and respecting yourself. Acknowledge the precious life force within by holding reverence and respect for yourself in all ways. Loving yourself is the action of Self Sovereignty, which is the natural state of embodying God’s Eternal Love. As a manifestation of God’s eternal spirit of Love, one has the ability to choose to create personal freedom without harming others. Have courage to remove the obstacles of pain and fear to become embodied Love, as God’s spirit is always found within.
3. PRACTICE THREE: LOVE OTHERS – As you learn to love yourself, love others. Acknowledge the precious life force in others by holding love, reverence and respect for others. Loving others as you love yourself, is the natural state of Self Sovereignty as you give others the same reverence for their life, as you give your own life. Through practicing self-love and loving others, no approval, worth or esteem issues come into question, as all is loved equally.
4. PRACTICE FOUR: LOVE EARTH AND NATURE – Loving the Earth and all her creations, the kingdoms of nature, plants, animals and mineral, which are all alive, conscious and intelligent energy beings. Acknowledge the precious life force present in images (2)all of God’s creation, by holding reverence and respect for nature. Doing so restores balance and harmony to nature, and the intelligent energy of all of earth’s creations will respond to cooperate with humankind. Humans living in discord with nature create many events that are considered to be “at the mercy of” the untamed forces. As humans learn to live in harmony with earth and the nature kingdom, the natural creatures will align to be in harmony and cooperation with all inhabitants.
5. PRACTICE FIVE: SERVICE TO OTHERS – Upon firmly loving yourself and honoring your path, find methods to be of service to others that do not overstep personal boundaries of discernment. Being of service to others does not include consumptive childmodeling, such as victim-victimizer, parasitism or emotional vampirism. Being of service does not hold an ego perspective of entitlement, expectation or attachment. Practice being of service with unconditional love, and naturally flowing in the moment. The energy exchange made between participants being of service to others, amplifies and expands consciousness growth like no other method. The more you amplify the energetic field of being in service to others, the more joy, harmony and gifts will be brought into your life. The more service you dedicate to Gods plan, the Law of One, the more spiritual support and spiritual presence one can exchange with God Force.
6. PRACTICE SIX: CONSCIOUSNESS EXPANSION – Learn to develop inner clarity and spiritual integrity by intending to develop personal consciousness and/or spiritual identity. To embody one’s spiritual identity, one’s mind must be initiated and disciplined. If the ego is in authority of the body it will repel the spiritual identity from embodiment. If the mental body creates obstacles to the spiritual identity, the spiritual identity, therefore the consciousness, will not be experienced. The first step to consciousness old peopleexpansion is becoming aware of mind control and the quality content of thoughts and belief systems. The second step is to cooperate with the process of mental and physical discomfort by having patience and waiting in the void of silence. Learn to quiet the mind, sublimate the ego and be still. Once stillness, mental discipline and ego sublimation has been achieved, listen to your inner spirit to receive guidance. Inner Guidance will always lead to the process of re-education to experience continual consciousness expansion free of fear and dogma. The Inner Christos always guides one towards choosing more love and peace via consciousness expansion of the spiritual identity.
7. PRACTICE SEVEN: RESPONSIBLE CO-CREATION – As one becomes more infused with the eternal love of the spiritual identity, the intelligent blueprint activates the divine purpose of being as a co-creator with God. The spiritual identity and the intelligent blueprint of divine purpose are one and the same. Clarity of purpose and direction becomes clearer and clearer as one commits to live in service to the principles of All-ONE or Christ spirit. Knowing and Living our purpose brings joy, peace and fulfillment, even when facing adversity or challenges. Once we achieve “knowing”, we are responsible for that knowing, and practice responsible co-creation with the All-One. A responsible co-creator knows all manifestations are in partnership with the All-One. We do not possess cropped-hqdefault-1.jpgor control anything, so needs, desires and superimposing will, should be avoided. We are stewards of God Spirit to Serve Others in responsible co-creation with All-One. From this knowing, and living this principle, we are eternally free of karmic exchanges.

Sprouting our Spiritual Seeds

Planting heirloom seeds in the garden, nurturing and watching them come to life is a passion. No man made fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides, only water from a well and sunlight. Mother Nature provides the nutrients through recycling leaves and plants, and ash from the fire pit. I am just the caretaker. Watching that seed sprout and take form takes patience. Disease and insects get the weak, animals trying to survive take the strong. Mother Nature’s weather, with its hot and cold, wet and dry, always affects the harvest.

 

The human spirit is like seed, capable of growing and developing. We are energy, called by many different names, soul, spirit, prana, chi, it is our very essence, waiting to be activated. Our hearts generate electromagnetic energy field can be measured several feet from our bodies. Albert Einstein said “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”

We are like that seed trying to sprout; with so much discussion about different religions, their beliefs, different gods, heaven, hell, reincarnation. Since birth, we have been so ingrained in our belief systems, it is hard to see the forest for the trees. No religion isimages (27) better than any other; and there is truth in all religions, you just have to find it for yourself. In order to truly understand our existence and purpose, a person has to step outside that box and that comfort zone.

In 1981, contact was made with what was believed to be an extraterrestrial with an entity named RA. Ra identified himself as the humble messenger of the “Law of One”. The message, simply put, the Law of One is the Universal Truth that “All Is One.” That contact lasted until 1984 resulting in 106 sessions with the L&L group that used “tuned trance telepathy” to communicate. Each session is documented and covers a wide variety of information. The sessions opens 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.”

The Law of One or called the “One Law” in ancient times, is embedded in all religions today. According to “The Teachings of the Essenes” by Dr. Edmond Bordeaux Szekely, Moses discovered the One Law, the totality of all laws. He found that this one Law governed all manifestations of life, and it governed the whole universe.

So I am learning and practicing the Law of One. This blog is to share what I have learned and provide some insight and information based on the “Law of One” and our religious systems. Check for more information on the Law of One.

In the Gospel of Thomas , verse 20, The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us what the kingdom of heaven is like.”  He said to them, “It is like a mustard seed. It is the smallest of all seeds. But when it falls on tilled soil, it produces a great plant and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky.”

Love and Light

The Power of Love

We are emotional beings. Love is personal to each of us and cannot be defined or explained in simple terms.  In 1763, Emanuel Swedenborg said In Love and Wisdom, “Man knows that there is such a thing as love, but he does not know what love is. He knows that there is such a thing as love from common speech, as when it is said, he loves me, a king loves his subjects, and subjects love their king, a husband loves his wife, a mother her children, and conversely; also, this or that one loves his country, his fellow citizens, his neighbor; and likewise of things abstracted from person, as when it is said, one loves this or that thing. But although the word love is so universally used, hardly anybody knows what love is.”

Do we know any more today about love? In 1763, there were 700 million people in the world with libraries and horses with cobblestone streets in sparsely populated areas, taking days to get information from one place to another.

Today we have  11 times more people with instant information on our cell phones, iPads, and laptops. Just google it and you get instant answers; you just have to check the images (28)validity. What we have learned is that the heart electromagnetic field can be measured several feet from our bodies. Our emotions are constantly up and down, positive and negative, always present and affecting our energy field. Love is a powerful emotion that we have felt in our relationships with families, friends, co-workers, lovers and former lovers, school mates, casual acquaintances and strangers. Our emotions dominate us, the way we think, sleep, eat, our moods and how we perceive life.

Consider, 7.7 billion people on earth radiating either positive or negative vibrations, nonstop; affecting our homes, jobs, cities, countries and our world. Our emotions are affected by everything we do, hear and see.

 Jesus said “love your neighbor as yourself.

Lao Tzu said in the Tao Te Ching, “nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself.”

“As a mother would protect her only child with her life … cultivate a boundless love towards all beings.” Buddha

Imagine 7.7 billion people radiating love and positive vibrations and how that would change our world …. Just food for thought.

Meditation and Rainbows

Meditation is the new buzz word for the west and we are learning the positive benefits to our well being.  Meditation can have positive effects on our lives and what we do, so let’s explore meditation and the possibilities.  Meditation is defined as thinking deeply or focusing one’s mind for a period of time, in silence or with the aid of chanting, for religious or spiritual purposes or as a method of relaxation.  Meditation is the all-embracing sense of oneness, an intimate connection to yourself and the world around you.cropped-healing-from-the-inside-out.jpg

Based on Hindu Scripture, meditation has been practiced since 1500 BCE, starting as a religious practice.  The practice spread to China and India around the fifth century BCE and other forms of Meditation developed within religions including Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity.

 

The bible speaks of meditation in Psalm 1:1-2 which says “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; (2) but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”

c58c4b1d4b64af2eed4c616860684bafCould the law of the Lord be considered the same as the Law of One?

In Joshua 1:8 God tells Joshua, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.”

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.”

Now the Catholic Church is recognizing the benefits of meditation.  As we seek and explore the truth, our past has much to offer.  What are the ancients telling us about meditation?

Is there a much deeper meaning for which daily meditation practice could raise our awareness and awaken the consciousness?  With countless belief systems all striving f6280c59a4a90cb94a785f77f97dd826--mind-body-spirit-chakra-healingtoward the same goal, meditation may be most beneficial in our endeavor to connect to our higher power.  God, known by many different names in different languages, is ultimately the one Infinite Creator.  Consider, within each of us we have a divine spark, our soul, spirit, the essence of our being, pure energy.  Energy is made up of  Chakras, centers of spiritual power in the human body, usually considered to be seven in number. Each center has a color and all seven represents a rainbow. Rainbows appear in seven colors of the spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet).  Each Chakra center is controlled by emotions.

The first step is understanding our energy centers.  The illustrations provides a guide for a better understanding.  Based on the Law of One, our challenge is to unblock our first three chakras and develop our  4th, the heart or green ray, and 5th, the blue-ray.  In session 15.12 in the “Law of One” Ra said, “The center of heart, or green ray, is ee2c9aa37eb3dda8e3d572006e469858--chakra-meditation-chakra-healingthe center from which third-density beings may springboard, shall we say, towards infinite intelligence.  Blockages in this area may manifest as difficulties in expressing what you may call universal love or compassion.”

“The blue-ray center of energy streaming is the center which, for the first time, is outgoing as well as inpouring.  Those blocked in this area may have difficulty in grasping the spirit/mind complexes of its own entity and further difficulty in expressing such understandings of self. Entities blocked in this area may have difficulties in accepting communication from other mind/body/spirit complexes.”
