Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All." (Gospel of Thomas saying 2)
We are all spirits, with a body and mind living in a physical world. We were born into this world, bound to what we have been taught but then something happens. We want to know the truth and begin seeking. The more we seek, the more free we become from the programing.
A free spirit chooses not to be bound or conform to the norms of society or their belief systems. They have a unique understanding about how our society and cultures have indoctrinated and programmed us since birth. A free spirit is seeking the truth, in their own way and their own time.
Jesus was a free spirit. He did not belong to any group and he certainly did not conform to any belief system. His message was of love and enlightenment.
Another free spirit, Buddha was a prince that could have been king. He left the comforts of a palace life to seek enlightenment for the next 7 years. .
A modern day free spirit is Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, a former atheist. He did groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology; radically changing 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. Dr. Bruce Lipton delivers one of the most important messages you will ever hear in this video.
Free spirits pave the way so others may follow. With love and compassion they serve humanity. Free spirits look within to know their true-selves. We are all spirits, but only those that choose to set themselves free are truly free spirits.
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.
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.
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 12:39-40, Luke 11:21-22,Matt 24:37-44, Matt 12:29, Mark 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].
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.
Have you ever considered why the concept of our energy centers, the chakras, has not been accepted or taught in mainstream? Perhaps those who rule do not want you to understand your full potential. Until the world became available to us via internet, we were very limited on the information we receive. Communication occurred more between governments, institutions and religions than people. We simply have beenprogrammed.
Ancient traditions knew of the pineal or third eye, the sixth chakra, and all its mysteries. They knew of the pineal role in our spiritual development and communication with metaphysical world. Even Jesus said “Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light.
In Buddhism, the third eye refers to Eye of Consciousness, seeing the world beyond physical eyes. In Hinduism the third eye is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge. Within Taoism, the third eye, known as Ancestral Cavity, serves as the cavity of profound and ancient knowledge and can be accessed through meditation and contemplation.
Today in is being reported that the Pineal Gland has highest levels of fluoride in our body. Fluoride is in our water system and dental products. One should ask why?
In the Law of One, the third eye 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 an energy center. The 1st chakra, or 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 chakra, 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 more blockages we have in our lower chakras the less flow of Intelligent Energy we receive. Our goal is to unblock our lower chakras and 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. The Law of One, session 15.12 provides a more spiritual advanced understanding of the Chakras. Commentary by Scott Mandelker, PhD provides an in-depth analysis of the 7 chakras in the Law of One, Session 15, part 2.
Science has actually proven meridians exist in our body. Our life energy, known as Chi or Qi, ad prana is distributed by these channels through our energy centers.
Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, is a former medical school professor and research scientist, and author of ” The Biology of Belief. ” His research radically change our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. His work was a major breakthrough showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking. Dr Joe Dispenza, another researcher proved that point by healing himself after breaking 6 vertebrae in his back and being told he would never walk again.
The Chakras are about energy within each of us. We all have abilities that require us to know ourselves and realize how our chakras as well as our thoughts, emotions and actions cannot not only heal us, but creates our reality. We are energetic beings with a power within each of us. The only one that can unleash that divine power is you. Perhaps that is the reason chakras are not accept or taught.
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.
Love, sex and spirituality have much in common but first “What is love?” A question mankind has pondered and contemplated since the beginning. And the question of “What is sex?” is no less problematic and both are questions we generally have answers, but is it the complete answer?
Love is the greatest emotion. It is said Love conquers all and some believe it is better to have lost in love than to never have loved at all. Love has different levels of emotions for each person. From loving our pet, parents, kids, friends and partners, we all experience love differently. Some love others freely while others try to hide their emotions.
Love is infinitely created and available from the source of all life. Love flows from the Spirit of God, some may refer to as the Holy Spirit. Others refer to as Universal Energy, intelligence beyond our understanding. It is the purest form of energy encompassing all. We all have the ability and desire to connect to the purest and highest form of love. According to the Law of One, our purpose in life is to learn the many ways of love, including love for those not close to us. Jesus’ message was love thy neighbor as yourself and love your enemies. Another interesting message from the Law of One is love and light are the same, and Jesus tells us we are from the light, in the Gospel of Thomas.
What about sexual love. Some believe it a subject that should not be discussed. Others may consider it sinful and forbidden. A core function of religion is to regulate and control sexuality and the control of sexuality is not only a moral imperative, but a way to maintain control of followers. Why are so many spiritual movements obsessed with eradicating the sexual aspect of our lives? One reason may be the body and the intellect are connected and, in cases of sexuality, the body may completely overcome the intellect and the spirit. In love and friendship, two spirits seem to feel and communicate with each other by affection and the union of their bodies. The body and spirit are intertwined, and as physical connection with one may lead to connection with the other. Sexuality is such a part of human nature that despite academic assertions that gender is socially constructed, there seems to be something about sexuality that transcends culture. The point at which the sexual transcends the cultural is where the sexual becomes the spiritual.
From the book by Dr.Vladimir Antonov , The Original Teachings of Jesus Christ, according to Gospel of Mary Magdalene, when she was blamed for adultery and brought for judging to Jesus: “They caught me and wanted to stone me. I, sinful, loved one man who was married and had three children. Relatives of his wife brought me to the square and began to shout in a loud voice, ‘Let us kill the adulteress! She desecrated the law!’ “Then… Christ told them, ‘Let him, who is without a sin, throw the first stone!’ And (He)… made the crowd disperse.
“Then He approached me and kneeled before me. “… I was burning with shame and fear. The sublime was taking place in me, in the soul. I fell on the ground and cried. He stroked my hair and said: ‘My dear sister, find strength to listen to Me! Much evil exists on this Earth, many lies have been said by the evil one! Forget that you are a sinner and tell Me whether your heart lives when you love?’
‘It does, Lord! When I do not love, it is dead!’ ‘Then love, heavenly sister, and do not sin anymore by thinking that you are a sinner.’” Jesus also told her the following: “What is sinful in this world is righteous in My Father’s Kingdom! The (True) Life is the life of love, not the life of hatred! “Many of the ‘righteous’ hate and condemn. But I say to you, an adulteress who does not hate will be better in the Judgement Day than the ‘righteous’ who condemn!” (Questions of Mary, 13-15)
Sexual love could be the greatest gift two people can share. It is interesting that many scientists and psychologists believe that desire or lust is a bodily urge, much like hunger or the blood’s need for oxygen. For anyone who has had those sleepless nights, driven to the edge of despair by an unquenchable desire for another, is probably very believable for many. According to clinical psychologist Dr. Rob Dobrenski “in many ways we can’t control what we desire because it is a hard-wired emotional and physiological response.” Perhaps this is a prelude, not only to learn and understand love, but to love passionately; to be able to fall in love; and learn of the powerful emotion affects of love, for us and those around us.
According to the Law of One , there is a sexual energy transfer when two lovers who are at the same spiritual level, merging into oneness. The energy overwhelms the lovers, emerging them with the peace, calmness and love that cannot be found anywhere else on earth. An euphoria that could only be describe and the oneness when we merge with Infinite Intelligence.
The Law of One discusses the beneficial energy transfer who are at the same level, when their love is in green ray, or heart chakra. In session 26.38 discusses the transfer and how the energy transfer will be blocked if either lover has fear of possession, of being possessed, or desiring possession or desiring being possessed. Emotional blockages prevent further development.
Emotional blockages come in all forms of life situations. What we have been taught about sex, sexual abuse, using sex to control or hurt others, sexual misconduct, or any negative sexual experience.
It is the process of learning about love through sexuality , it is an art of giving yourself and your love fully to your partner through sexual relationships. And only a combination of sincere and giving love on the side of both partners can lead to energy transfer.
Our sexuality was conceived by Infinite Intelligence not only as a means of reproduction but also as a method to develop spiritually. It may facilitate the cultivation of such aspects of love as tenderness, care, self-giving, merging of two consciousnesses into one, which prepares one to the merging with Infinite Intelligence.
Tenzin Palmo Jetsunma interviewed about romanticism that makes us confuse genuine love with attachment – and how it causes suffering in relationships.
We are on earth is to learn and understand Love and how to balance it with wisdom. Consider a ethically correct spiritual sexual life directly contributes to developing the ability to love. God is Love and Love is energy. If we want to merge with Infinite Intelligence, we should transform ourselves into Love as well by living in a state of spiritual awareness with the highest priority Be loving to yourself and others; be compassionate about people, animals and our planet; know and understand the Oneness of all, and consciously attempt to honor this Oneness. Radiating love and light is the start for us all.
Buddha said, “For hatred will never put an end to hatred; love alone can. This it the unalterable law.”
As we go through life, sooner or later we will face disturbing effects of illness, diseases and failing health. The medical system is failing, ran by the pharmaceutical corporations; our food supply is being replaced by nutrient deficient food; genetically modified foods and, glyphosate has been found in the water supply. Even the air we breathe is questionable. When we are focused on all the obstacles we face daily, it is difficult to stay committed to a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes it helps to remember we are here for a purpose; to discover our true selves.
With falling health, our human bodies become frail, our minds become confused with fear and anger, feeling defeated. But our spirit, our higher self, tells us to keep going, to not give up. Most do not realize that we have been programmed since birth. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we have become and how we think. Our lives are connected to family, friends, work, school and the material world, all affecting our health; positively and negatively.
As we begin to discover our true selves, spiritual healing begins with the realization there is a Source, Universal Intelligence of pure sacred energy, that connects us all. We begin to think and believe we can heal ourselves. Controlling the mind is key, not only for our health be for our spiritual journey.
Buddha said, “Hard it is to train the mind, which goes where it likes and does what it wants. But a trained mind brings health and happiness. The wise can direct their thoughts, subtle and elusive, whenever they choose: a trained mind brings health and happiness.”
We have to deprogram ourselves, so to speak, and perhaps think differently. There is another world that is inseparable from our physical world that cannot be detected with the five senses; our metaphysical world. It is the world of the Source, pure energy simply beyond our understanding. It is the energy generated by our hearts and minds. Science is beginning to study what we already know. One study makes a striking correlation between heart rate and the electromagnetic energy from the sun and earth. Even health care providers are understanding the correlation between spirituality, religion and mental health.
The Source is our life line. In Chinese cultures, this is known as chi or qi and other cultures ki, prana, chakras and kundalini. Our body, mind, and spirit have a life force we call electromagnetic energy or energy that cannot even be measured or thoroughly understood. Sunlight is something we cannot live without. Light is the food for all life on earth. The human body, according to the doctrine of chromotherapy, is basically composed of colors. Isn’t that what Jesus said, We are from the Light? We know insufficient sunlight will result in low Vitamin D deficiencies, leading to the development of prostate and breast cancer, memory loss, and an increased risk for developing dementia and schizophrenia. We have been told to wear sunscreen to protect ourselves but what is really happening? We are light beings with chakras and the energy of the sun has the colors of the rainbow. Every creature and plant on earth is engulfed in light that affects its health conditions.
Grounding, as we all know when we go to the beach, improves sleep and reduces stress. Grounding is bare skin to the earth, perhaps walking or performing Qigong or chi gong, or any meditative practice outside barefoot. It is an excellent way to cultivate energy. We all wear shoes and that prevents us from getting the benefits from the earth. Grounding is a simple way to prevent and help inflammation with these techniques.
Emotions control who we are and what be become. Paracelsus, Father of Modern Medicine said “The spirit is the master, imagination the tool, and the body the plastic material . . . The power of the imagination is a great factor in medicine. It may produce diseases in man and in animals, and it may cure them . .. Ills of the body may be cured by remedies or by the power of the spirit acting through the soul.” Thoughts and emotions control our destiny, so think what you want to become and do it in love, the strongest of all emotions.
Meditation and prayer are our connection to the Source but also essential in controlling the overactive mind. According to Dr. Andrew Newberg, meditation and prayer positively changes our brains. He also said that the brain has two primary functions that can be considered from either a biological or evolutionary perspective. Essentially, we are hard-wired for God, the Source.
A 12 minute exercise, called the Kirtan Kriya is a type of meditation, practiced daily for 8 weeks, will improve cognition and activate parts of the brain that are central to memory.
The power of visualization is a tool we can use for healing. Your brain is constantly using visualization in the process of simulating future experiences. This happens so naturally we generally aren’t even aware it is happening, much like we are unaware of our breathing or heart beating. If you are not aware of it then you are not actively directing the process. You can learn to use visualization to actively create future simulations that can help you improve goals that you set for yourself, such as healing. The same thing may apply to the lost mode of prayer. Visualizing your prayer as if it has already happened instead of asking for it.
We live in a world of distractions. Fear, anger, stress and greed will wear the body down, but love is the one emotion that will overcome all. In your own way, try to 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. 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 the Source. All the same divine energy connecting as one. All waiting on you.
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.
In saying 17 of the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said, “I shall give youwhat no eye has seen and what no ear has heard and what no hand has touched and what has never occurred to the human mind.”
Can you imagine Jesus’ disciples trying to understand what he was saying. Even today one has to understand the estortic meaning and contemplate the verse. A similar verse is found in Isaiah 64:4 . He proclaims, “Since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. “
Isaiah was a Hebrew prophet who was believed to have lived about 700 years before the birth of Jesus. Born in Jerusalem, Israel, he was said to have found his calling as a prophet when he saw a vision in the year of King Uzziah’s death. It is said Isaiah prophesied the coming of the Messiah Jesus Christ.
You will also find a similar verse in 1 Corinthians 2:9 “However, as it is written: What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived — the things God has prepared for those who love him.” Did Paul take the saying from Jesus or from Isaiah? We will never know.
Consider Jesus’ message in saying 17 as a spiritual message suggesting the world is not as it seems. There is another world in our midst. A spiritual world that cannot be detected with our five senses; it is available to us now while we are alive; we no longer have to wait until death. The path is love, seek the truth, and know yourself. In saying 5, Jesus said “Know what is before your face, and what is hidden from you will be revealed to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor anything buried which will not be raised up!”
We all possess the Christ Consciousness within. Jesus’ message tells us how we all could tap into divinity. No one can describe or even comprehend Christ Consciousness. Jesus’ metaphors and parables are providing the way, not just in the Gospel of Thomas but also verses that can be found in the New Testament and Gnostic literature, the Koran and Eastern Mystics and other texts around the world. Our purpose is to evolve spiritually and to seek the divine within ourselves and then we will know God.
” I have stilled my restless mind, and my heart is radiant: for in
Thatness I have seen beyond That-ness. In company I have seen
the Comrade Himself. Living in bondage, I have set myself free: I have broken away from the clutch of all narrowness.
I have attained the unattainable, and my heart is
coloured with the colour of love.” Kabir Mystic Philosopher
Consider Jesus’ saying 17 is to tell us that he has a secret, so perhaps we will seek to know the secret. Would we have even known of the 114 secret sayings if not for the discovery of Gospel of Thomas and other text in 1945. At at time when the world was beginning its transition into the largest world population, nearly 7.7 billion, and for those that follow numerology, those numbers may mean something. From a metaphysical standpoint, and according to the Law of One, we live and a multidimensional universe. We are the third density out of seven densities, under a veil so we cannot see.
In session 73.13▶ of the Law of One, “Questioner: What was the orientation with respect to this type of communication for the one known as Jesus of Nazareth?
Ra: I am Ra. You may have read some of this entity’s workings. It offered itself as teacher to those mind/body/spirit complexes which gathered to hear and even then spoke as through a veil so as to leave room for those not wishing to hear. When this entity was asked to heal, it oft times did so, always ending the working with two admonitions: firstly, that the entity healed had been healed by its faith, that is, its ability to allow and accept changes through the violet ray into the gateway of intelligent energy; secondly, saying always, “Tell no one.” These are the workings which attempt a maximal quality of free will while maintaining fidelity to the positive purity of the working. “
Perhaps the Discovery of the Gospel of Thomas, 114 the secret sayings of Jesus should be considered the second coming of Christ, his true message. But we can only image. This is a beautiful song from the original Movie soundtrack.
I felt Jesus’ message in saying 17 would be a good way to end this year. I would like to thank all those who subscribed and follow Inspiration. 2019 will be another year of challenges for each of us but, the biggest challenge is knowing ourselves. Meditation is a great start, if only for a few minutes a day; a time simply for yourself. Meditation is the gateway and no one can do it for you but you. Remember assistance is available, all you have to do is ask. Just know what is in front of your face and you will see what is hidden.
Imagine 7.7 billion people radiating love, and how the positive vibrations would change our world. May all of us bring love and compassion into 2019. Happy New Year everyone!!!
