Spiritual Persecution

FALUN GONG SUPPRESSED

Falun Gong followers have tried mass phonings, street demonstrations and hijacking satellite signals to protest their persecution at the hands of Chinese authorities. But they’re now taking a legal approach, filing at least 12 lawsuits in countries as the United States, Finland, and Australia against Chinese officials they accuse of perpetrating human rights abuses, from former president Jiang Zemin down.

More than 30 countries are calling on the Chinese regime to end the persecution of Falun Gong , a spiritual practice that millions around the world have made a part of their lives. Rooted in Buddhist tradition, it consists of two main components: self-improvement through the study of teachings, and gentle exercises and meditation. July 20 marks the start of the persecution of the spiritual discipline by the Chinese Communist Party 21 year ago. A joint statement from the lawmakers from 30 countries are calling on the Chinese regime to end its hostility against Falun Gong saying the 21 year persecution campaign is one the harshest again a faith group in modern time.

In the United States, a statue of Jesus Christ was found toppled and beheaded at a Catholic church in  Miami. That occurred sometime between July 14 and the morning of July 15, 2020. The statue was decapitated and removed from its pedestal.

Destruction of  momentums are  becoming the norm in the new world order and a form of spiritual persecutions.  Another example, in states across the USA are many people are not allowed to attend their religious services of their choice. When the courts ruled against the tyranny then they were not allowed to sing or chant. 

We are in a time when each of us have to make a decision. Another example in my humble opinion is the mandatory requirement to wear masks. It is a  control effort, to take away our freedom, not as protection as broadcast on mainstream media.  My belief is we do not have a true pandemic but are being controlled by dark forces. There is no doubt covid19 is real and kills some, mostly the elderly and people with compromised health conditions.

In the Law of One  in session 65.7  we are told  ” the ideal of freedom from the so-called invading force of either the controlled fascism or the equally controlled social common ownership of all things would stimulate great quantities of contemplation upon the great polarization implicit in the contrast between freedom and control. In this scenario which is being considered at this time/space nexus the idea of obliterating valuable sites and personnel would not be considered an useful one. Other weapons would be used which do not destroy as your nuclear arms would. In this on-going struggle the light of freedom would burn within the mind/body/spirit complexes capable of such polarization. Lacking 107752309_1174258589574237_8123106837845963924_othe opportunity for overt expression of the love of freedom, the seeking for inner knowledge would take root aided by those of the Brothers and Sisters of Sorrow which remember their calling upon this sphere.”

The weapon is not bombs and guns but a psychological and propaganda war while freedoms are being taken away based on a fabricated fear orchestrated by social and mainstream media. Perhaps it it is time to realize that controlling  wearing mask are part of that control. Consider that is just the beginning of a more aggressive approach as the Chinese regime persecution of Falun Gong , a spiritual practice that millions around the world have made a part of their lives.

But is it far deeper than most realize.  Do you think this Judge family was shot and killed was a coincidence, think again.

 

COVID19 and the Greatest Spiritual Awakening

The coronavirus has brought the greatest spiritual awakening the world has ever known and we are all part of it. It has affected people of all walks of life, every religion, every 8b323dadc3cd5677789005f8f71a3187country and every person in some way. The awakening is unique to each individual. We begin to realize the world is not as it seems and the physical and metaphysical worlds are inseparable.

We are faced with a barrage of information trying to decipher the truth affecting each of us emotionally. We are in a battle between positive and negative energy. Our emotions generate energy creating our reality and the world we live in. COVID19 has created negative energy around the world. Neighbors turning in neighbors for not complying with the quarantine, others harassing those for not wearing a mask, mandatory vaccines vs free will, people are not allowed to gather in their religious practices, number of COVID 19 main-qimg-5823f89bd39090a67efa65d6bf63ba51deaths being skewed or inflated to instill fear in the population. This is just some of the examples taking place creating a world of control, fear, anger, stress and greed.

On the other hand, the shutdown of industries across the world has shown how the earth is healing herself. Beginning on 25 March, 2020 the level of particle pollution considered most harmful to human health fell by nearly 60 per cent in New Delhi, India’s capital, according to an analysis by experts at the nonprofit Centre for Science and Environment. In other parts of India, the Himalayan mountain range is visible from a distance for the first time in years. Waterways choked by industrial pollution, such as Delhi’s Yamuna River, full of grey foam just months ago, are flowing unimpeded. CBS news reported on April, 11, 2020, “Just as suddenly as it first Quotes-About-Planting-Seeds-For-Life-02formed, a record-breaking ozone hole has healed. The largest ozone hole to ever open up over the Arctic is now closed, after first opening up earlier this spring”. Other cities around the world air quality has improved with the shutdown. The great realization tells us how we have treated our home, mother earth in the past and now is the time to evaluate how we live in the future.

The great awakening knows that love is the one emotion that will overcome all. It is about cultivating 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 68418190_2375674929385148_1647311436247990272_n electricitywisdom and be of service to others. Within us all is a divine spark, some may refer to it as the Christ Consciousness and together it will be a collective consciousness. The awakening starts with the mind and the realization of the power within, a change from traditional thinking. It is just you, your higher self with help from Infinite Intelligence. The more divine energy of Love you generate, the more the awakening takes place not only you but collectively we can heal mother earth and we become one. It is time for people of all religions to understand the only thing that will save us is ourselves. It is a global event that you do not want to miss. In your own way, from your heart, pray, meditate and contemplate and bring God back into your life. You have free-will to choose by loving others as you love yourself, treat others as you would like to be treated, help those who need help. This is a wonderful start. Know the divine power within and be part of the great awakening.

“Think feelingly only of the state you desire to realize. Feeling the reality of the state sought and living and acting on that conviction is the way of all seeming miracles. All changes of expression are brought about through a change of feeling. A change of feeling is a change of destiny.” One of the great metaphysical teachers of the 20th century, Neville Goddard showed people how they could attain their goals simply by refining their imagination. The Video below by  Brian Scott is a wonderful example how the feeling is the secret.

 

“If, then, I were asked for the most important advice I could give, that which I considered to be the most useful to the men of our century, I should simply say: in the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.” LEO TOLSTOY

The Power Of Awareness

This is a very powerful video reading from the Power of Awareness by Neville Goddard.  Neville Lancelot Goddard (1905-1972) was a prophet, profoundly influential teacher, and author. . Goddard was sent to illustrate the teachings of psychological truth intended in the Biblical teachings, and restore awareness of meaning to what the ancients intended to tell the world.

This is audiobook read by Brian Scott, a writer, entrepreneur, epiphany addict, inner space astronaut, life coach, and  transformation engineer. Brian tells us that since life is infinite, the concept of an ultimate destiny is inconceivable. When we understand that consciousness is the only reality, we know that it is the only creator. This means that your consciousness is the creator of your destiny. The fact is, you are creating your destiny every moment, whether you know it or not. Much that is good and even wonderful has come into your life without your having any inkling that you were the creator of it.

Self awareness is being aware of your thoughts, emotions and actions moment by moment and understanding the world around you. Realizing we live in the inseparable 79129951_10219260512159354_4070859377123262464_nphysical and metaphysical worlds and the world is not as it seems can be helpful. There is a vibrating constant energetic motion within all things, we can call Universal Intelligence, or God.

According to theLaw of One, the mind must be known to itself and this  is perhaps the most demanding part of self awareness.  If the mind knows itself then the most important aspect of of self awareness has occurred as consciousness is the microcosm of the Oneness.  In other words, the macrocosmic intelligence which guides the birth and processes of the universe is reflected on a microcosmic scale in each individual being.  As energetic beings, we are radiating positive and negative energy by our thoughts, emotions and actions, creating our reality with all its distortions and confusion.  Our goal is to learn and have balance between love and wisdom. 

Jesus said in the Gospel of Thomas “When you (plur.) make the two one and make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside and the above like the below, and that you might make the male and the female be one and the same, so that the male might not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in 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 you will enter [the kingdom].”

Saying 22 of the Gospel states most vividly and fully the recurrent theme. Jesus sees infants being suckled. He tells his disciples that these infants are like those who enter the kingdom. “Shall we then,” they ask, “as children, enter the kingdom?” This prologue calls to mind, of course, the familiar saying from the canon: “Suffer the little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

To know yourself is the same message Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Krishna and many others 76769654_10156516563441566_544743934945918976_ohave been trying to tell us through the centuries. Lao Tzu tells us “Wisdom come from knowing oneself. He who knows himself is enlightened”. In the dialogue of the Savior Jesus said “Those who have truly found the Self within recognized that it exists everywhere.” Buddha added, “Everyone has recognized the self-ones essential nature. But few have realized it.”

We all have the divine gift of discernment, the act or process of exhibiting keen insight and good judgment. In its broadest sense, discernment is closely related to wisdom as an expression of God. Discernment alone can bring about a sense of balance between the worldly and the spiritual.  All things are possible.

As children of the Creator, we release all negativity and chords from ourselves and our planet. Our world is  filled with abundant love,  light and happiness. May our love flow like water, blessing all those that come within. May we remove old patterns that no longer serve us and all those that enter the light may truly see and receive blessings that are abundant for all. May all negative energies that are trying to bring us down be removed, and each thought, emotion and action allow the love and light to flow. We are listening to our  angels to guide us,   and to heal our bodies, mind and spirits, to feel the love and light, happiness and gratitude it deserves. May our  love and light radiate from each of us into the world to create a world of love, light,  wisdom, and Joy. 

The Awakening

Many are seeking the truth and the meaning of our existence, to know our true selves.  First,  Dr. Bruce Lipton explains  we have been programmed since birth.  Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we are and become.  We have been guided daily through a world wide messaging system,  vaccinations, GMO foods, pesticides and chemicals, as well as the air we breathe.    It is a worldwide system of control that is keeping us sick, possibly with  vaccination   in the pretense of keeping us healthy and making it a better world.  We have geoengineering under the pretense of global warming. Who controls these systems and why do they want control?  The truth is so unbelievable for many that most will simply discard it!

a6642038cc2e6468f54d55314386bb77

Perhaps now, with the world wide panamedic regarding the COVID-19 known as the  Coronavirus, it is not so unbelievable.  What we have been told from the mainstream media and the truth are often different. Citizen reporters finds media is not truthful with COVID-19 reporting. Others tell us a much darker picture making it difficult to decipher.

Approximately 84 percent of the world populations  go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places to seek divine guidance and the truth.  The truth is elusive and there is a realization that all religions have some truth, but no religion  has all the truth.

Worldwide, more than eight-in-ten people identify with a religious group,” says a new comprehensive demographic study of more than 230 countries and territories conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life. “There are 5.8 billion religiously affiliated adults and children around the globe, representing 84 percent of the 2010 world population of 6.9 billion,” the analysis states.

Consider a relationship with God is the same as having a loving relationship with our 70444051_498887950951344_4587249759047122944_nfamilies, friends, neighbors as well as everyone in the world, even our enemies. It’s about taking care of nature, Mother Earth and all its life sources. God is divine energy encompassing all things. The essence of God is within each of us and called by many names world wide;  higher self, spirit, soul,  rūḥ, Tao,  chi, prana, kundalini and chakras to name a few. The Abrahamic Religions refer to the Holy Spirit of God which resides within the center of each of our eternal spirits as the voice of God and answers directly to God.  The divine essence of God is within each of us waiting to be awakened. 

Imagine your religion contains truths that can be used as stepping stones for the path of your spiritual journey, the higher truth.  Religion has been used to  divide us when it should unite us.   One core belief of all religions  is love, compassion, wisdom and service to others.

Like politics, religion can be changed by the people but again, most do not realize they have been program to believe what they have been taught at a very young age.  In the  video below,  you see people from all walks of life – Jewish, Muslim, Christian, some religious, some secular. It is evident that the participants are moved by this experience.  It is truly  inspirational and emotional.  

If only the world lived by one simple message Jesus was teaching, we can change our world, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  By honoring and respecting others’ beliefs and religions,  not only will it bring us closer together, but closer to our Creator.

We can learn from each other. As an example, the energy centers in our bodies are known as Chakras, taught by the Hindus; Buddha teaches meditation,  attachment and higher self;  Taoism speaks of the Tao or Way, the path; Muslims, Christians and Jews are of the Abrahamic religions and provide their own set of dogma, doctrines and disciplines. Many people in these religions as well as people all over the world are discontent and express a longing  to know the truth. Jesus or Yeshua, is  known throughout the world as a spiritual leader, messiah, divine,  prophet,  Jewish preacher, religious leader, son of man, son of God and to some,  even God.    Jesus said in Luke 12:49-53  “I have come to set the world on fire.”   Indeed he has; in all  facets of our understanding and beliefs. For many,  Jesus was the perfect spiritual mentor, someone who lived their life as the living embodiment of a true man of God.

We have learned from science, we are all spiritual beings with a body and mind made of electromagnetic energy.  Our thoughts help create our reality through emotions.  When you see someone walk into a room smiling or crying, you are affected by emotional vibrations.  Negative and positive emotional vibrations control our lives and we become what we think.

Through meditation and reprogramming of what we have been taught since birth, we can better understand how to awaken that divine spark within.   Father Francis Tiso, a very controversial Priest, talks about our divine spark in this video.

One should realize there is so much beyond our understanding, but perhaps now we have come to a time and place where we can begin to learn.  The internet has given us the  world  at our fingertips. It began in 1983, and from there researchers began to assemble the “network of networks” that became the modern Internet. The online world then took on a more recognizable form in 1990, when computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web.

Now we can read sacred texts written centuries ago with the understanding that they were written for that specific time and place, including Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Muslim, Jewish, Christian and so much more.  I think it is important to understand that any attempt to translate a sacred text from one language to another will involve some level of misunderstanding of the meaning, comprehension, and expression. That includes many texts today used in religions. In addition, it is important to realize what may resonate with me may not necessary work for you.

Other information started coming to light in the last few hundred years for those seeking the truth, such as source called Channeling. This Spirit science video provides more detail to this subject.

Emanuel Swedenborg(1688–1772) mystic and spiritual explorer inspired some the world’s greatest minds and souls such as Helen Keller, D.T. Suzuki, and Ralph Waldo Emerson just to name a few. His work through channeling,  inspired everyday people searching for truths on their spiritual journey. This short video provides explains the essential connection of the physical and spiritual worlds.

The Oahspe Bible was published in 1882 produced by an American dentist, John Ballou Newbrough (1828–1891) through channelling.

Sometime between 1924 and 1955,  Urantia, was published and believed to be channeled by unknown parties.

In 1945, thirteen ancient texts called “codices” were discovered in upper Egypt untouched by scribes.  They were translated in 1970 and are known as the The Nag Hammadi Library.  Scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth were found,  and label as Gnostic Gospels  thought to be destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define “orthodoxy.”

In 1946 the Dead Sea Scrolls  manuscripts were found in the Qumran Caves near The Dead Sea.

The Law of One  was channelled from 1981-1984,  recorded and documented over 2360 questions and answers in 106 sessions. The group was Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot, Carla Rueckert, a devoted Christian; , and James McCarty, the sole survivor today. The contact was made by an advanced extraterrestrial from the 6th dimension.  Answers were given in a scientific and metaphysical vocabulary.

Channelling has been going on since ancients times,   contact with divine entities. In the New Testament, there is discussion about testing the spirits.  1 John 4 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God. Are the discoveries divine intervention at a time we can communicate around the world instantly? Is the COVID-19 an act of God so we will come together as one?

The Law of One was published most recently and made available to everyone.  In it, our purpose of existence is revealed as well as the consequences of our behavior.  It uses a more metaphysical, scientific and complex vocabulary to explore some of the same concepts we have learned in our religious systems.  It explores and explains the human race and our past, present; and provides us with a glimpse into the future.  Simply stated, it is about love, light, wisdom, free-will, and seeking the truth.

Scott Mandelker PhD, combines eclectic Western psychology with intensive study of Eastern religions, and followed upon years of formal training in US and Asian Buddhist temples said this material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”.  His YouTube videos cover the entire Law of One session providing his reading and understanding. 

The Law of One is an  advanced approach to our belief systems, what we call seeking the truth.  Every religion has a law,  but was this message to clarify those Laws?  Was the Law of One sent at a time so it could not be changed by man?   The three people that made contact dedicated their lives to provide this information to the world.  They did not profit or gain popularity.   The entire three years of their work is available free on the internet.  images (37)

We have arrived at a point in time where we as humans, “body,  mind and spirit” regardless of  religion, can come together, with love, compassion, wisdom and be a service to others.  We should  understand the differences and look at those differences with love and understanding.  The path for one may not the be the path of another by divine design.  Remember, religion is just one path, but   God is is always with you. isn’t it time for all religions to quit judging and condemning others. There are many paths to the same destination and by joining together as One we can create the world for our children and their children. It starts with just one and the ultimate teacher is God, who is closer to you than your heart beat. There is not a better teacher.

Please share this or explain in your own words to other so that the energy of  your love, light, joy and unity will radiate to others.   Now is the time to stand together as One.

Spiritual Healing

As we increase our understanding of our true nature,  we begin to realize there is a  divine-love-quotes-8-17-best-images-about-love-on-pinterestSource,  a Universal Intelligence of pure divine energy, that connects us all. Science may call it a quantum or biofield, described as “a field of energy and information, both putative and subtle, that regulates the homeodynamic function of living organisms and may play a substantial role in understanding and guiding health processes.” Science also tells us that the heart electromagnetic energy  field be detected and measured several feet from the body.

More recently, Dr. Valerie V. Hunt, scientist, author, lecturer and Professor Emeritus of Physiological Science at the University of California confirmed electromagnetic energy is the most plentiful constant energy of our universe. It is a part of all structures living and dead, including the atmosphere. We create hqdefault (4)electromagnetic energies in the atoms of our living cells, which we enhance by the reaction with the atmospheric energy field. We know this expanded energy field as the human aura. Without this biofield life would not exist and there would be only an inner biochemical mix. Dr. Hunt was involved in research that is uncovering the various dimensions involved in the bioenergetic transactions between humans and the environment as they relate to human behaviors, emotions, health, illness, and disease, as well as scientifically quantifying the human aura and the levels of consciousness it contains., all you have to do is realize the power within you.

The Abrahamic religions, Christians, Jews and Islam may refer to this quantum or biofield as the Holy Spirit while while Taoist refer to chi or qi and the Dao or the way. tetragrammaton-ineffable-name-of-godHindu refer to prana and chakras while the Buddha included prana under a different name, one that is also used in yoga. The words is virya, and it means vitality, or life energy.

Consider all the different labels of this divine energy by science and religion the same. When we realize we are co-creators by our thoughts, emotions and actions then the healing process can begin.

We are all subject to three types of diseases that affect the body, mind and Spirit and all are interrelated. Disease normally occurs during 68395567_2628362577247376_4371379888091824128_nrecurring negative thoughts, emotions and actions. We know the Law of Karma, we reap what we sow. The body is affected by bacteria, virus and an array of toxins in our foods and environment. Our bodies suffer from pain that needs physical healing. Our minds are susceptible to infection by fear, worries, anger, greed, selfishness, jealousy just to name of few, which requires mental healing. Our spirit is haunted by the disease of forgetting our true nature which cause man to forget their perfect divine nature and focus on the physical world. Ignorance creates imbalances between body, mind and spirit.

Chakras  are the bodies seven energy centers. The healing process begins with clearing blockages in these energy centers and connect to the quantum field. Energy flows with love. When we love others as we love ourselves; love nature; be of service to others and placeboare mindful of our thoughts, emotions and actions, the healing process will begin. Prayer, meditation, contemplation and gratitude is part of the healing process.

 Jesus   message to us was we all have the ability to heal if we believe his message of love and enlightenment and look within ourselves to find the answers. In  John 14:12 when Jesus said “Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.

 

Expanding and Experiencing Spirituality Through Intention

How much of an impact do our intentions have on us and our world?  Our lives are programmed from the first phase of birth, programmed to eat on a schedule, to sleep on a schedule, to work on a schedule.  We have become so accustomed to being programmed we even program ourselves.  We create an intense catalog mentally of our responses to specific stimuli, in return when experienced again our subconscious takes over and goes into autopilot.  Reacting and/or responding to our repeat of the same experience.  What happens when we stop ourselves and actually think through the intention of the outcome rather than the outcome itself?  Are we truly living life or merely trying to survive it?   Ask yourself,  how many times throughout my day do I just go through the motions, never giving a thought as to why I’m taking the action.

Does that mean if I respond the same way each time to a specific comment or action, I’m acting from pre-programming?  No, not necessarily.  Let’s take for instance a loved one saying I love you,  normally a typical response is to confirm you love them as well.  Now ask yourself, when you say it do you just say the words or do you actually wish to convey to the person the actually feeling of love you feel in your heart.  Your answer is not only indicative of your self programming but also of your spiritual well being.

When we go through the motions without intentions, we rob ourselves of the emotions, placeborewards and growth the action alone fails to garner.  How do completely benign thoughts and actions fill and affect our world?  Studies regarding placebos indicate that when we believe we are taking medication that helps us the outcome can be a measured positive response. When we take a placebo our intention is to heal, and we tell our bodies such and it makes it so.  Therefore our intentions not only affect our emotional state so that we actually experience the moment, we find that intention also affects our physical bodies as well.

 

The New York Times Bestseller, The Hidden Messages in Water, documents the extraordinary life work of Dr. Emoto regarding the impact of human thoughts, emotions and intentions on water crystallizationThe study had a profound impact on our understanding of the effect of our thoughts and intentions on the world around us.  The study showed beautiful and intricate crystals formed when positive intentions and thoughts were impressed upon the glass of water, when negative thoughts and intentions were impressed upon the same water the crystals were dark and ill formed, if formed at all. 

Our intention adds the abstract layer of a focused outcome, one in which we not only create the thought or action but do so with a mindfulness making us fully aware of the moment.  In doing so we not only capture the emotional impact of the moment but we expand our spirituality with the acknowledgement of the connection between our heart and minds.  Studies already prove that human consciousness has more to do with our reality than human intelligence.  Want a better day?  Want a better life? Want a better world? Our intentions can and do impact the physical world around us,  how much can we change ours by living in the moment, by acting and thinking with positive intention?

 

 

 

Stumbling in the Silence

 

busymind2

Nirvana, enlightenment, Christ Consciousness, many words used to describe a state of higher consciousness a state of loving all.  Becoming one with all, stepping beyond our own human limits and rising to our spiritual level which has no boundaries.  Measly words created by man can barely describe that of which we know and understand,  trying to use those same words to describe that of which exists only in faith, only within ones self can never convey it to a level of understanding that will come on an intellectual level.  That however is where the fun begins.

theveil

It’s called the “veil”.  Such as the bride who hides behind the veil to only be exposed at the time of unity – the uniting of two to become one.  Same holds true with the “veil” that each of us live behind as a spiritual being living a human experience.  The “veil” only to be dropped when we have reached the unity of oneness with our One Creator.   When we reach the acceptance of Love, that it is not just what we do or how we feel, it is who we are.  Love is all, it’s oneness;  it is the very reason for our existence.

Spirituality has been described as that of which is revealed in the silence when looking within ones self to understand the true message given to mankind throughout the ages in sacred texts. Silence…., who hears anything in the silence, isn’t that in itself contradictory?  Silence is defined as having no audible sound, to hear nothing according to the dictionary.

silence

Therein lies the challenge, how does one find the silence within?  There’s so much noise today, not just on the outside but within us.  We worry about finances, love, family, health,  politics, we worry about worrying.  Our minds don’t stop long enough to hear silence, we  are constantly thinking about whats next, family, friends, chores, trips,  health and life.  Most of us can’t even hear ourselves speak.

In Greek during biblical days, the word silence meant to keep peace.  Therefore; when one keeps peace within themselves – within the silence, the truth is revealed. Much like the varying definitions of the word silence, each of us will also have varying definitions as it applies to us.  Silence doesn’t always mean a clear, empty mind, sometimes it may just be observed as a peacefulness within.  There is no right or wrong way to reflect upon ones own image, peeling back the layers of what we not only hide from others but hide from ourselves.

peacewithin

The search within is a catalyst for most, if not all along the spiritual path.  Searching and listening for the silence, waiting for that noticeable change within.  The change begins the minute we opt to pursue the path of spirituality, the minute our mind accepts things aren’t as they seem.  We notice subtle changes in our thought process.  However; for some this is the point that seems to lead to frustration, and for some a hesitation to continue along the path.  A feeling of inferiority, a feeling of failure, these feelings are normal, they are a part of the path.  That is the voice we hear in the silence, its not telling us to condemn and judge ourselves its showing us the areas we must focus on and bring into balance.  We all struggle and stumble within the silence.  Struggle to understand the message, and stumbling by judging our self.   The silence can become stronger when we have no level of expectation, but simply an acceptance and love for our self.  Loving and accepting of ones self is the ultimate catalyst for spiritual growth, without the love of our self how do we love our neighbors as our self?

Tribe of One

My friend Tom and I keep having a discussion about people and tribalism. Tom has his PHD in Linguistics so he has some knowledge about people, language and its structure.  He insist68404423_2368486500103991_6739274845336371200_n that it is most people’s’ instinct to belong to a tribe. In the past, the Native Americans lived in tribes and for the most part still do. It is said Jesus belonged to the tribe of Judah. Others go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, and mosques. We have families and jobs so that could also be considered tribal.

So I started to ask myself what is a tribe. I really do not have one, other than family and friends. But, then as I was writing this, I started thinking about you. Is spirituality tribal? What does tribal mean?  In the Biblical sense, which was the original one in English, the Latin word translates Greek phyle “race or tribe of men, body of men united by ties of blood and descent, a clan”. Tribal in Latin can be interpreted as Generalis which means general, universal, tribal.  Isn’t humanity a tribe united by body, mind and spirit?  In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said, “If they say to you, ‘Where have you come from?’ say to them, ‘We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established [itself], and appeared in their image.’ We are all part of  Infinite Intelligence and we are spiritual, so perhaps we could call it the Tribe of One.   

Consider humanity as a tribe formed long ago with the potential of over  7 billion wisdom-quotes-kindnesscompassioncharitytruth-and-lovepotential members.  Individually they have created their own reality by their thoughts, emotions and actions but collectively, have unknowingly created our world. The Tribe of One requirements would simply be you have to be awake.  Everyone is included, regardless of race or beliefs. The initiation is to know your true-self, be of service to others while learning the ways of love and wisdom. 

As member of the Tribe of One, I find it liberating to break away from the status quo and bring collaboration and community into the world with no dogmas or doctrines.  Love is the divine power.  The Tribe of One purpose to spread and share love, compassion, gratitude, 67636273_2369209166503744_6291097606453985280_nappreciation and be of  service to others. It is not about judging,  condemning  or controlling others by instilling negative beliefs such as “burning in hell” “sin and repentance” ; even if you don’t believe or belong to the same group, as I do.

Divine Universal Infinite Intelligence radiating pure energy of love is our source. Within each of us is that divine spark or light waiting to be awaken. The spiritual path is unique for each person. The Law of One is a wonderful guide that has very deep spiritual teachings and has been said to be one of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus. Each tribal member is responsible for their own initiation by whatever means they deem appropriate.

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.

Jesus Secret Sayings, 9-16

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 traditionsb2f79f613c6c6aaa3912be59c692ca8d 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.

seed-sprouting(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.”

There are comparable sayings in Matthew 13:3-9, Mark 4:2-9 ,  Luke 8: 4-8  and Luke 8:13 .  Each time the author has added their interpretation of the seed parable as found in the Gospel of Thomas.  Similar stories are also found in the Sirach 6:19.

Meditation-quotes-Paramahamsa-YoganandaThe 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 20251920-put-the-world-on-firecome 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 download (30)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?”

Comparable saying Matthew 24:35  Mark 13:31 Luke 21:33 Matthew 5:18 and  Luke 16:17.

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 reincarnation (1)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 9:46-48Luke 22:24-27Matt 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 godsaystrustmein 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 download unitedlike.”

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.”

Comparable sayings can be found in Matthew 16:13-23, Mark 8:27-33 and Luke 9:18-22. 

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. connect to your higher selfWhen 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, fastingimages (91) 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 

big_thumbNot 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.

 

World Intention

As children of the Creator, we demand all negativity and chords be removed from our planet. We ask that our world be filled with abundant love,  light and happiness. May our love flow like water, blessing all those that come within. May we remove old patterns that no longer serve us and all those that enter the light may truly see and receive blessings that are abundant for all. May all negative energies that are trying to bring us down be removed, and each thought, emotion and action allow the love and light to flow. May we ask the angels to guard and protect us, and to heal our bodies, mind and spirits, to feel the love and light, happiness and gratitude it deserves.
