All the treasons criminals are in one place. The public must believe and accept, the MSM will try to fight back. The plan is in motion, the countdown has started, the patriots are preparing to make their move.
Thought of the Day
In the Gospel of Thomas Saying 70 Jesus said “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
There is a Divine Plan and the Light of God within us. If we bring forth the light and love within, it will transform us. More light and more love will return to us on the Cosmic return. If we do not become one with the light and love of God within our hearts but instead turn to darker emotions then that negativity will become an anathema to the Christ within. To put it another way, nearly every person who goes through the near death experience and is able to remember, finds out that God and the Spiritual Hierarchies do not judge them. They themselves are their own judge. The Christ within and their own conscience are their judges. The Cosmic Beings showing the souls the karmic record radiate pure love. The Light of God encompassing our souls has an innate intelligence. It cannot be fooled.
We are in unprecedented times. Never before has there been such a time that has affected the entire world. We are all watching and participating in the battle of good and evil. The United States and the world is moving into uncharted territory as multiple legal challenges have been filed in response to the 2020 elections, with more challenges expected to come. But this is not about Biden or Trump, it is about us, what we stand for as individuals, as a nation and most importantly our spiritually.
We come from all walks of life, different cultures, beliefs and religions. One think we all have in common, we started as a miracle.
Scientist have discovered at the moment of conception, there is a literal flash of light. At death they have discovered some leaves our body based on this video.
In saying 50 in the Gospel of Thomas that was omitted from the Bible, Jesus said: If they say to you: Whence have you come?, say to them: We have come from the light, the place where the light came into being of itself. It [established itself], and it revealed itself in their image. If they say to you: Who are you?, say: We are his sons, and we are the elect of the living Father. If they ask you: What is the sign of your Father in you?, say to them: It is movement and rest.
Also in the Gospel of Thomas, saying 83, Jesus said: The images are revealed to man, and the light which is in them is hidden in the image of the light of the Father. He will reveal himself, and his image is hidden by his light.
We are the light, our true selves. Spiritual evolution is happening around the world and your spiritual path is unique to you. There is not one size fits all. There is wonder and frustration, unbelieving to accepting. We are realizing the world is not as it seems and the physical and metaphysical worlds are inseparable. What we thought was true no longer applies. You begin to realize how thoughts, emotions and actions not only create your reality but the world. Look how COVID19 has created fear and doubt around the world,and how it has divided us.
Humanity is not alone in the universe and our purpose is to learn how to balance love and wisdom. Love is the most powerful energy in the universe. The signs are all around , we just be mindful of the moment and know that God, Infinite Intelligence is with us, always. We are born into the world for a purpose. We are the light and the world needs us more than ever!
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.
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!!!
We are all connected to the same source, the One Infinite Creator, and we are all trying to find our way back home. Even scientific research has suggested that we are wiredwith spiritual brains and how meditative prayers actually changes our brain.
According to various sacred texts and the more recent contact, the Law of One, “All things, all of life, all of the creation is part of one original thought.” We move our body, mind, and spirit in somewhat eccentric patterns because we have not grasped the concept that we are part of the original thought, that we are all one. To know the truth is to know yourself.
Our ancient teachers provided the message over the years, but man has misinterpreted the meaning and the masses follow. We are condemn by religions and those who follow that religion if our beliefs are different than theirs.
The Christian Gnostics, who lost the battle with orthodox Christianity tells us a Divine spark exist within us and is also taught by the Syriac Christians mystics as other world belief systems and religions. Edgar Cayce said Christian Gnosticism was the highest form of Christianity.
Buddha taught us that the Universal mind is not subject to birth and death. It is beyond all concepts of duality and Divine matter is eternal, it contains within itself all reality and all truth. Buddha taught us meditation, the gateway to find our way home, an essential part of our spiritual journey.
Krishna from the Hindu Religion said, “the Lord dwells in the heart of all things. He is the only reality so do not be deceived by appearances.”
Lao Tzu in the Tao Te Ching said the Tao (God) never answers with words. It does not reach out for things, but all things come to it. The unspoken plan unfolds slowly. It gathers all things as if in a net, so nothing is lost.
Jesus, the messenger of love, said we are from the light in the Gospel of Thomas, discovered in 1945 and can be found in saying 50 in the Nag Hammadi library. The discovery provided striking differences from orthodox beliefs. Instead of being separate from God, we are One with God. Instead of sin and repentance, Jesus speaks of illusion and enlightenment. And finally, instead of Jesus being Lord and God, we are all from the same source, and Jesus is our spiritual guide. We all have the power within. In the Gospel of Thomas saying (3) Jesus said: If those who lead you say to you: See, the kingdom is in heaven, then the birds of the heaven will go before you; if they say to you: It is in the sea, then the fish will go before you. But the kingdom is within you, and it is outside of you. 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.
God is spirit of pure unknowable energy encompassing all. We are all connected spiritual beings , all from the same source. According to the Law of One, no religion has all the truth, but all religions have some truth. Our requirements are the same regardless of religion or no religion, to learn the ways of love, wisdom and be a service to others. Meditation, contemplation, prayer and study will help with that endeavor. If you fail to learn the lessons in this life perhaps you will in the next, but eventually we all find our way back home.
In the last posting we discussed how the Christian Gnostics had some of the same spiritual concepts as Buddha, Lao Tzu and Kristna. You also may be surprised how closely related Jesus’ teachings are to the eastern mystics traditions. The traditions are a spiritual way of life that includes developing respect, trust, and love for all and discovering our full potential as true human beings. All spiritual concepts ask us to look within ourselves to find answers. The answers are in plain site, as Jesus tells us in various parables. “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.” (Saying 5)
Perhaps it is time to listen to our higher self. We all have deep seeded belief systems, affecting our understanding of not only Jesus’ parables and metaphors, but our understanding of God. Many have been engrained with orthodox Christians sources. Today we have the world at our fingertips to help us understand Jesus true teaching to help us find our way back home. The Gospel of Thomas provides new insight into the true teachings of Jesus. This 12 minute video provides an overview of the Gospel of Thomas.
Last time we discussed verses 1 through 8, Jesus’ message was to seek the truth, look within ourselves to find the kingdom. Many believed Jesus died for our sins. Perhaps one should consider he died so we could see the light and to follow his message and be like him; pure love and light. This is up to each one of us to contemplate and decide for ourselves. Now let’s discuss verses 9 through 16.
(9) Jesus said, “Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up. Others fell on the rock, they did not take root in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate them. And others fell on the good soil and it produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure.”
The seed parable describes the divine seed God planted within each of us. In order to grow, one should find their way by seeking the truth, being caution of the pitfalls of life and false teachings that produce no fruit. Those who discover the truth, will begin to sprout and grow. The more you cultivate the divine seed with a fertile foundation, the more abundant your love and light grows. The illuminating light and love affects those around you, doubling in measure.
Jesus said, ” The truth will set you free.”
(10) Jesus said, “I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.”
In a similar parable, Verse (16), Jesus said, “Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to cast upon the world. They do not know that it is dissension which I have come to cast upon the earth: fire, sword, and war. For there will be five in a house: three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand solitary. Comparable sayings in Luke 12:49 , and Matthew 10:34-36,
Most would agree Jesus message has cast fire on the world. He is known throughout the world as either a spiritual leader, messiah, divine prophet, Jewish preacher, religious leader, son of man, son of God and even God. Was Jesus’ message love and enlightenment or sin and repentance as the Orthodox view teaches? That difference has divided many, including religions and families. We have been indoctrinated since birth with the orthodox view. The Muslims and Christians seem to stay in conflict, both believe in Jesus but in different roles. All those in conflict believe they are right. In the end, each will stand alone.
(11) Jesus said, “This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. In the days when you consumed what is dead, you made it what is alive. When you come to dwell in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?”
All of reality as we realize it, is an illusion and will pass. Even the illusion of birth and death will be realized as such. Everything is in flux, ever changing to a higher state of consciousness. We pass through periods of incarnation, eventually returning to the spirit world of light. To learn our lessons we must become two to be able to come into this world of illusion, with all the confusion and distortions. When we consume what is dead, we make alive. We are all here to learn our lessons plus the ways of love and wisdom and must return to the positive polarity to return to the One. We are here now as two, so what will you do in this material world to return to the one.
(12) The disciples said to Jesus, “We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?”
Jesus said to them, “Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.” Comparable saying can be found in Luke 9:46-48, Luke 22:24-27, Matt 18:1-4, and Mark 9:33-35. It is interesting to note, Jesus mentions no names in those parables.
James was the brother of Jesus, and the leader of the Church in Jerusalem until his death in 62 CE. There are five books of James in the New testament. Also discovered later was The Secret Book of James and The Apocryphon of James. James did not drink wine or eat meat or cut his hair. He was found kneeling and praying to the point his knees were like a camels because he was alway kneeling. He was an extraordinary character and righteous. In the Secret Book of James, he presents himself as the person who sends the other followers of Jesus on their missions. Today, Christianity has followed more of Paul’s teaching, Many biblical scholars and lay Christians have noted that Jesus preached almost exclusively about the kingdom of heaven, while Paul highlighted justification by faith—and not vice versa. Some conclude that they preached two different gospels. Others argue that really they both preached justification; still others say it’s all about the kingdom. The true teacher is within each of us, our higher selves.
(13) Jesus said to his disciples, “Compare me to someone and tell me whom I am like.”
Simon Peter said to him, “You are like a righteous angel.”
Matthew said to him, “You are like a wise philosopher.”
Thomas said to him, “Master, my mouth is wholly incapable of saying whom you are like.”
Jesus said, “I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring which I have measured out.”
And he took him and withdrew and told him three things. When Thomas returned to his companions, they asked him, “What did Jesus say to you?”
Thomas said to them, “If I tell you one of the things which he told me, you will pick up stones and throw them at me; a fire will come out of the stones and burn you up.”
Consider after each answer, Jesus responded by telling them he was not their master and that they were drunken by his presence and their perceived idea of who he was. They looked upon Jesus as a being unlike themselves. When believing Jesus was more than he was, they were unable to see themselves as equals. When Jesus took Thomas aside, he said three things or words which could have been along the lines of,’ “We are equal.” “We are the from the light” or “we are all sons of God”. That would justify Thomas’ response to the others when asked what was said.
(14) Jesus said to them, “If you fast, you will give rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick among them. For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth – it is that which will defile you.” Comparable says are Luke 11:1-4,Luke 9:1-6, Luke 10:1-12, and Matt 6:2-18,
This one is probably more difficult than most because of the ways we have been taught since birth. Consider we all have a higher self, a divine spark within; a divinity from God. We are suppose to allow our higher self guide us because we have all the answers within. Like overindulgence with food, fasting for too long also harms the body. We have the ability to heal when we seek the truth and look within ourselves as Jesus said in saying 2 and 3. What we eat will not defile us but what comes out of our mouth will.
(15) Jesus said, “When you see one who was not born of woman, prostrate yourselves on your faces and worship him. That one is your father. Comparable saying is John 10:30
Not born of a woman is our father. Again, Jesus is telling us we are all equal with Jesus. When we worship other humans, there is division instead of uniting and finding our way home. We are all divine beings of infinite worth and we are here to learn our lessons specific to us, and the ways of love and wisdom.
Each parable has many answers and within your own reflection you will find a greater answer than anyone else could give you. Perhaps we should consider the Gospel of Thomas was used by the others to write the Books of the New testament. Next month we review the next group of the 114 secret sayings of Jesus.
Starting with just two minutes a day will help with getting into the meditation habit. Meditation for 30 minutes a day, even broken up in three 10 minutes or two 15 minutes session helps incorporating meditation into your daily life. The practice should not be uncomfortable, but pleasant and enjoyable. Each person should go at their own pace and their own way. Daily meditation is a positive step for anyone on the spiritual path.
Besides the countless benefits of meditation, Andrew Newberg, MD Director of Research, Myrna Brind Center of Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital has being doing research and suggest that Human beings appear to have spiritual brains; brains that are capable of feeling deeply connected to something greater than themselves and that we can develop intense beliefs about God. His research reveals the fascinating relationship between the universal spiritual urge and the intricate workings of the human brain. He did brain scans of Franciscan Nuns while they were engaged in a type of meditative prayer called centering prayer. The brain scans showed many different changes, including changes in he parts of the brain that are involved in the sense of self, providing evidence that meditative prayer has a measurable effect on the brain.
What science is just now proving, Tibetan Buddhist have known for years. There is an advanced spiritual practice known as the Rainbow Body. It involves the practitioner being able to dissolve their body and mind into light at the time of death and even during their lifetime. It was reported that when a person dies, rainbows suddenly appeared in the sky and after several days their bodies disappeared. Sometimes fingernails and hair were left. Sometimes nothing was left. A rainbow light has been witnessed by thousands of people after death. Attaining ‘rainbow body’ is discussed in Zen texts, as well as Zoroastrian, Christian, Manichean, Muslim, Bonpo, and of course, Vedic texts, among others. Attaining the ‘light body’ is for everyone. There is ample proof it actually does occur and has in ancient times.
Father Francis Tiso, author of Rainbow Body and Resurrection, a gave this presentation at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco providing his evidence that such a thing occurs. Father Tiso also discusses the implications of an IONS-sponsored research project investigating a specific case of the Tibetan Buddhist practices of the “Rainbow Body,” the ostensible dematerialization of the physical body after death.
Some believe these stories reflect upon the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is central to the Christian faith. Jesus was loving and compassionate, selfless person. When he died, according to the gospels, his body was no longer there. Jesus said in Matthew 6:22 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 The eye is the lamp of the body. If your vision is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your vision is poor, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
The eye is the lamp of the body, also known as the third eye, the sixth Chakra. This Chakra, if the vision is clear, receives the Intelligent Energy from God. These energies pour or stream down into the individual’s body, mind and spirit.
Understanding and obtaining a rainbow body is available to everyone. Buddha said “Before you set foot on the path master yourself” “Master yourself’ Simply make a commitment and start by just sitting quietly for a specific period of time in a comfortable place. In the Law of One, Session 15.12 explains how an individual can work on balancing the self and provides the steps of how to balance each Chakra. Scott Mandelker PhD, provides his commentary and reading of session 15.12 on his YouTube video, essential information for balancing the self.
Make meditation a habit and it will change your life. Consider it God’s gift to all of us so we may find our way home. Only you have the key to unlock the door.
Jesus said: If those who lead you say to you: See, the kingdom is in heaven, then the birds of the heaven will go before you; if they say to you: It is in the sea, then the fish will go before you. But the kingdom is within you, and it is outside of you. 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. Gospel of Thomas verse 3
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.
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 theLaw 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.
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.
