Shouldn’t Mothers Day be Everyday?

Here we are again that very special day of the year when we honor our mothers.  Our mothers made us who we are, how we think and how we act.  Who and what we are today is very much based on the love of our mothers.  I am not mothers-around-the-world-1-2-852x500leaving out fathers, but this is mothers day.  As of May 10, 2019  the National Retail Federation estimates that U.S. consumers will spend $23.6 billion  on Mother’s Day this year.   Last year, $14.3 billion, was spent on father’s day as a comparison.

Those numbers really do not depict the real picture how women have been treated throughout history.  Granted progress has womens-suffragebeen made, but in reality, is it enough? Saudi Arabia implemented new rules in 2018 to allow women to obtain drivers without permission from their legal guardians nor will they need a male guardian in the car with them.

Women in Switzerland gained the right to vote in federal elections after a referendum in February 1971.

Egyptian women were guaranteed the right to vote and equality of opportunity was explicitly stated in the 1956 Egyptian constitution, forbidding gender-based discrimination. Labor laws were changed to ensure women’s standing in the work voting-kKWE--621x414@LiveMintforce and maternity leave was legally protected.

French women were disenfranchised at all levels before 1944. Women could vote from 1945, but only if literate. Restrictions on women’s suffrage were lifted in 1965.

In June 4, 1919 congress passed and later ratified  on August 18, 1920,  granting women the right to vote in the United States.  These are just a few examples of women’s struggle in more recent times.  Women have been suppressed by men for centuries and it started with religion.  Unfortunately orthodox Christianity is not based on the teachings of Jesus, but on the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, which are download (11)entirely different. There are a number of reasons for this, the foremost of which is that Jesus was deliberately sidestepped in favor of the alternative teachings of Peter and Paul, teachings which were thoroughly denounced by the Nazarene Church of Jesus and his brother James.  Only by removing Jesus from the frontline could the Popes and cardinals reign supreme. When formally instituting Christianity as the state religion of Rome, Constantine declared that “he alone” was the true “Saviour Messiah”, not Jesus!.

The only way for the Roman High Church to restrain the heirs of Mary Magdalene was to discredit Mary herself and to deny her relationship with Jesus. As a result, the Church Noli Me Tangere by Veroneseportrayed Mother Mary as a virgin, and Mary Magdalene as a whore, neither of which description was mentioned in any original Gospel.

The Church’s only salvation was to deny women altogether; to deny them not only rights to ecclesiastical office, but to deny them rights to any status in society. Hence, the Church declared that women were all heretics and sorceresses!   In this, the bishops were aided by the words of Peter and Paul, and on the basis of their teachings the Roman High Church was enabled to become wholly sexist. In his Epistle to Timothy, Paul wrote:  “I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp any authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

In the Gospel of Philip, Peter is even quoted as saying that “Women are not worthy of life”.

patriarchy-competition-copyThe bishops even quoted the words of Genesis, wherein God spoke to Eve about Adam, saying “He shall rule over thee”.

The Church Father Tertullian summed up the whole Roman attitude when writing about the emergent disciples of Mary Magdalene:  “These heretical woman! How dare they! They are brazen enough to teach, to engage in argument, to baptize. It is not permitted for a woman to speak in church, nor to claim a share in any masculine function-least of all in priestly office.”

So when we look at why women have been so mistreated during the centuries, all we download (38)have to do is look at the abrahamic religions.  Others like Hinduism view the feminine energy as the essence of the universe, the one who creates all matter and consciousness, the eternal and infinite, the metaphysical and empirical reality, the soul of everything. The woman is celebrated as the most powerful and the empowering force in some Hindu scriptures such as  Upanishads, Sastras and Puranas.

The Buddha gave women full freedom to participate in a religious life. The Buddha was the first religious teacher who gave this religious freedom to women. Before the Buddha, women’s duties had been restricted to the kitchen; women were not even allowed to enter any temple or to recite any religious scripture.

Men and women are equal partners in our  world. Until we all realize and adopt that TRTRconcept there will always be a struggle.  Some men  believe staying home and raising children is far less that than bringing home food for the table.  Women see emotional intelligence far more important than physical intelligence but yet most have to call upon men to move or handle things that are highly physical. The problem may be we have become more competitive and see one more superior than the other, when in fact,  both are equal. There have been many men that have had to raise their children and have done an excellent job. But there is nothing greater nor is there any substitute for the Mothers love for her children.

Jesus Secret Sayings 23-27

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. 

 
 

 

Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East

Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East is an easy read six volume set by Baird T. Spalding. It is a treasure for anyone’s spiritual journey and the truth seeker.  It is about a research party of eleven scientists that visited  the Great Masters of the Himalayas in 1894 for three and half years.  The Masters, as referred to by the scientists,  assisted in the research and translation of the records contained in these books answering many questions we have today.  The books provide experiences of the expedition. 

The Masters talk about Buddha, who represents the Way to Enlightenment. They clearly set forth that Christ is Enlightenment, or the Christ Consciousness. The Christ Consciousness is the Christ light, the divine spark of every individual, the light of every child that is born into the world. They explain how Jesus walked on water and fed the masses. They provide new light into the teachings of Jesus. 

The Masters explain the mystery of thought vibrations, how we can create our reality by our thoughts and how we can heal ourselves.  They explain the nature of cosmic energy, the nature of God and the metaphysical world.   

The  research in these volumes provides answers to questions most have been seeking  living in this illusion. We do not have to wait until we die to discover salvation, but we can discover it while we are alive, now in this lifetime.    If you enjoy this research and find in useful in your quest to understand our purpose, I would encourage you to tell others and share this invaluable information.  The first three volumes are available free in pdfs for your reading pleasure.

Love, Sex and Spirituality

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 This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 46505780_1980974068616481_480245586428166144_n-300x241.jpgunquenchable 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.”  

 

Jesus Secret Sayings 18 and 19

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.

Know Yourself

Religion teaches us rituals, tradition and belief systems. Have they misinterpreted the message regarding  looking within yourself to find God by not teaching the concept?  In Luke 17:21 Jesus said “nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”  There are many interpretations of that one verse.

To know yourself may seem simple, but do we really know ourselves.  Our lives are connected to  families and friends  living in the physical world of  media, religion, governments, corporations, banks and education. We are living it everyday,  all day, every week, month and year, year after year. That is all we know. We have been made to believe we are advanced technologically,  but in reality,  we are mere children, playing in the world playground.  We have world information at our fingertips, to study, to learn and inspire.   In the meantime we are watching our home, mother earth,  being destroyed, and even allowing it by remaining silent. Are we the meek?  Have we have lost our way?  Perhaps we have forgotten who we are, why we are here and where we are going.  Even though your  part in this great illusion may seem small, you have no idea of the importance of your presents on this planet at this time in our history.

There are 7.7 billion of us on this planet and within each is a Divine Spark, Spirit or Soul  waiting to be awaken and find their Way.   Most disregard this concept simply because it is not something the  five senses nor scientific evidence can detect.  Our emotions, feelings and thoughts create our reality more than we will ever realize. Many seekers have found the Way to the metaphysical world that exists right before our eyes. Their studies included studying and contemplating the many ancient teachings and recent information available to us today.

One of the many teachings are the Secret Teachings of Jesus found in the Gospel of Thomas,  discovered in 1945 with other ancient texts.   Jesus’ message was of love and enlightenment and not of sin and repentance as taught by the Church. In his sayings, Jesus tells us to look within, to know ourselves; to seek the truth; we are from the light; Recognize what is in our sight, and that which is hidden from us will become plain to us. For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest. He had many messages of his 114 sayings first interpreted in 1959 and more translations in the 70’s.

The wisdom teaching of  Buddha, who could have been King but chose the Way as the path of seeking enlightenment by looking within. His teachings provide much insight into mindfulness  and meditation techniques putting our lives into perspective. He also tells us to look within, to know ourselves.  Buddha said, “Seeking within, you will find stillness. Here there is no more fear or attachment-only joy.”

The Tao Te Ching is probably one of the wisest ancient books, reported to be written by the sage named Lao Tzu over 2500 years ago. It is about living in unity with nature, the Way and teaches us to look within. One saying from the Tao Te Ching, “He who knows the Way does not let it show. Neither does he seek to be rewarded by anyone. Those who know the Way find their reward within themselves.”

The fundamental teaching of Hinduism  is that a human being’s basic nature is not confined to the body or the mind. Beyond both of these is the spirit or the spark of God within the soul. In the Katha Upanishad,  Krishna said ” God allowed man to look outward, but in seeith the outer the inner ignored  Those who see the eternal, turn their gaze within.”

Rumi was a 13th-century Sufi Mystic and  Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar and theologian. His quotes are transforming,  based upon love, hope, inspiration, and awakening.  Rumi said “Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.”

The Law of One, is  a channelling event that occurred in 1981–84. It is  recorded and documented in a  question and answer format taking over 3 years.    It has been said it was the greatest spiritual message since Jesus. It reveals our purpose, the consequences of our behavior and what even  happens at death.  It has intense teachings and one is of our  energy channels, Chakras, how to  balance ourselves. To balance is to know ourselves,and to know ourselves is  our foundation.

To know yourself is the message from our teachers. The language that the Divine Matrix recognizes prayer as imagining it already happened instead of wishing for  it to  happen. Remember our thoughts, emotion and actions create our reality.  Be surrounded by your prayer as if it already has been answered. Ask without judgement whether right or wrong or ego and ask from the heart and feel the results as if it already has happened .

You do not have to be of any particular religion or any religion. Open your heart and seek within. To know yourself is unique to each of us. This uniqueness evolves as we seek the truth with love and service to others.  When you know yourself,   there will be no more fear, only understanding of your purpose.   Meditation, contemplation, study, thanksgiving and prayer are tools for the great journey.

Meditation, the Tool for Transformation

In the last blog, The Most Sacred, we explored our spiritual realities. Instead of  listening and following what others tell us,  perhaps it is time to seek and discover  the truth for ourselves by looking within.  Meditation, with its countless benefits, is our tool to explore the Way. Jesus said in the Dialogue of the Savior, left out of the Bible, “When I came among humanity, I opened the door to the Way. I showed you the path that you must follow. You will find it within yourselves.” And Buddha said six hundred years earlier, “Before you set foot on the path, master yourself.” Krishna said, around 3500 BC, ” Those find the Way are those who have love and forgiveness in the hearts, and Lao Tzu said in 5oo BC, “the Way is empty, the Way is full. There is no Way to describe what it is. Find it within yourselves.”

Meditation has been around for thousands of years and is based on Hindu Scripture, as a religious practice. Buddha said “Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
It is even mentioned in the Bible, Psalm 1:1-2, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; (2) but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”
In Joshua 1: 8 states “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.”
The Acts of Peter XXI,   also omitted from the bible, “Give ear; withdraw your souls from all that appears but is not truly real; close these eyes of yours, close your ears, withdraw from actions that are outwardly seen; and you shall know the reality of Christ and the whole secret of your salvation.” In  Matthew 6:6 ”  But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”          

But what is left out is how to pray or meditate. Perhaps Jesus’ message in the Gospel of Thomas can assist in our journey of seeking the truth.   In the Gospel of Thomas,   (48) Jesus said, “If two make peace with each other in this one house, they will say to the mountain, ‘Move Away,’ and it will move away.” The one house is the body, and  the two are mind and spirit. A very similar saying in (106) Jesus said, “When you make the two one, you will become the sons of man, and when you say, ‘Mountain, move away,’ it will move away.”

The two are  mind and spirit, thought and emotion.   From a spiritual perspective, Meditation is our  Gateway, our connection to Universal Intelligence.  Jesus was telling us how in the Gospel of Thomas, omitted from the bible. When we can make our thoughts and emotions one,  we will be transformed and will able to move mountains.   

We all have a divine power within. It is up to each of us to look within, know ourselves and understand our purpose. Our tool is meditation, contemplation, prayer and seeking the truth.  This video may provide additional insight for those seeking the truth. 

The Most Sacred

Have you ever considered what is the most sacred of our world?  Most  believe it to be an object such as a temple, building, monument, church, synagogue  or mosque or  high-ranking religious leaders.  A structure or object  is just that and our religious leaders are simple human beings, just like us.

The most sacred is every human being on earth. Within each of us lies a divine light, the essence of Infinite Intelligence, waiting to be awakened . Our bodies are the temple. Every human being is of infinite worth and at some point in time, each will come to that realization.

Sacred ancients texts and mystics called it the divine spark. Christians and Jews call it the soul, Muslims rooh, Hindu atman and there are many other names used through the centuries. Perhaps we are at a place  when it is time to realize who we are, why we are here and where we are going.

We live in a material world full of confusion and distortion. It is the world of positive and negative energy, good and evil, continually fighting for the most sacred prize, our essence. It divides us through our beliefs systems by judging, condemning and threats of forever punishment by not following a certain belief system.  It  divides  us when we should be united  with love, compassion, wisdom and helping one another.

There is much to learn from each other with an open heart and mind. Instead of listening to what others tell us,  perhaps it is time to seek and discover  the truth for ourselves.  There is much truth in religions but no religion has all the truth.  It is why we are here, to learn.

The Law of One in 4.17  says our purpose is to learn. First, the mind must be known to itself. Second, understand the concept of the balance between love and wisdom in the use of the body in its natural functions. And the third is spiritual  and contact with Intelligent Infinity.

Buddha taught us meditation, how to silence the mind, to know ourselves. Meditation is God’s gift, our gateway to find our way home. Jesus taught us love, to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Both Jesus and Buddha teach us to look within ourselves. Buddha tells us the way is not in the sky but is in the heart. Jesus also says the kingdom is within you and the one who knows himself will find it. Other teachers provide the same message.

 There is nothing  more sacred on the planet than the divine light within each of us,  waiting to be awakened.

I Shall Give You What Has Never Occurred in the Human Mind

In saying 17 of the Gospel of Thomas,  Jesus said, “I shall give you what 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!!!

Enoch, a Missing Link?

The Book of Enoch was probably one of the most influential book used by writers of the bible but was omitted in the  Old Testament and the Tanakh, the Jewish Bible.  It was one of  many ancient sacred texts omitted from the Bible that are available to us today . The Book of Enoch was first discovered in the 18th century and most assumed it was penned after the beginning of the Christian era because it had quotes and paraphrases as well as concepts found in the New Testament. However, the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls found at Qumran in 1946,   proved the book was in existence long before Jesus  and believe to be written sometime in the 2nd or 3rd Century BC.

Much of the ideas written down would influence later thought across nations. Religious leaders. Secular leaders. Focus on China, India, Greece and SW Asia.

The time period from  800 BC-200 BC was   known as the Axial age.  It was a time in our history  when the most creative and influential  thinking in the  world, amazingly occurring in four separate civilizations; West Asia, South Asia, East Asia, and northeastern Mediterranean. Some of the Sages included Zoroaster, Jeremiah, Isaiah, The Buddha, Confucius, Heraclitus, Socrates, plato and Aristotle , Varhamma Mahavira,  and Pythagoras. In different ways, they responded to an array of spiritual ideas and concepts; the emergence of the self-consciousness. It was early in our history when humans beings began to reflect on individual existence, and the meaning of life and death.

The Book of Enoch  was once cherished by Jews and Christians alike. It is read in certain Coptic Christian Churches in Ethiopia. There is  evidence Jesus not only studied the book, but also respected it highly enough to allude to the doctrine and content. And, there are over one hundred comments in the New Testament which find precedence in the Book of Enoch.

One of the interesting aspects of the Book of Enoch for me, starts in Chapter 6. ” And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters.
2 And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: ‘Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men.”   It is the story of the fallen angels and is virtually identical with Genesis 6.1-2. In the Book of Enoch, we get their names and many other details. The angels, referred to as the watchers, were the children of the heaven. Some saw and lusted after human women and said to each other that they should choose wives from among the children of men. At 7.2, he says they had giant sons and were able to easily dominate Enoch’s people.  This Youtube video may provide evidence Giants did exist according to this article,    When Giants Roamed the Earth.

“A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty – it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man.” Albert Einstein

The Law of One references higher level entities more sophisticated that  we can use as guides, if we pay attention. The Law of One also mentions quarantine , possibly because of incidents of the Giants to protect us from further intrusions.    

No one really knows why the Book of Enoch was not included in the bible.  There is only  speculation. What is important though is, they are  available now like so many other sacred texts that were not so-called “canonized “by the Church authority.

Sacred ancient texts labeled as heresy or not approved by the Church, certainly peaks my interest. The discovery of thirteen ancient texts called “codices” were discovered in Upper Egypt untouched by scribes in 1945. They were translated in the 1970’s and are known as the Nag Hammadi Library. Scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth were found, and labeled as Gnostic Gospels thought to be destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define “orthodoxy.”

One should contemplate why once treasured ancient sacred texts are being revealed during our time,  providing a different understanding than church teaching. In the Gospel of Thomas verse 5, Jesus said, “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.”  Gospel of Thomas is 114 secret sayings of Jesus  revealing a different understanding and teaching than church fathers have taught us.  Next post will include the discussion of the sayings of Jesus,   “I shall give you what 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.” (Saying 17 Gospel of Thomas). 

The Book of Enoch and the Book of the Secrets of Enoch are at your fingertips.
