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.

 

Paul said I have become all things to all people

What did the apostle Paul mean when he said I have become all things to all people. Perhaps first we should consider the question, “Who was Paul” We believe he was the author of 1st and 2nd Corinthians, letters he wrote to his Churches.

pharisees_7Prior to Paul’s conversion, he was involved in persecuting Christians affirmed in the Book of Acts and in his own letters. Paul, or Saul, was a loyal Pharisee, the ones many believe responsible for Jesus’ crucifixion. In Galatians 1: 13,  Paul said you have heard of my former life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God violently and tried to destroy it. In verse 14,  And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers.”

A Pharisees is a member of an ancient Jewish sect, distinguished by strict observance of the traditional and written law, and commonly held to have pretensions to superior sanctity. Jesus was a thorn in their side. He was talking to the Jewish people in John 8 Bible-Verses-About-the-Essence-of-the-PhariseesWoe-to-PhariseesJesus speaks of the light of the world and how the truth will set you free. He also speaks of Children of the Devil when talking to the Jewish people when he said (v44) ,”You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies”.

Again in Matthew 23, Jesus was talking to the crowds warning against hypocrisy and the seven woes on the teachers of the law and Pharisees. Matthew 23 is a interesting read for those who are interested and may provide insight on understanding Paul.

Acts 9 tells us as Saul drew near to Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from paul-vision-road-to-damascus-505810-mobileheaven flashed around him. (4) He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?”5“Who are You, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” He replied. 6“Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Paul was a pharisee loyal to the traditions of Yahweh the Jewish God which Jesus accused as the Devil in John 8:44. Jesus sevens woes were about the Pharisees and in Matthew 23:15 Jesus says “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have main-qimg-2f1393df9996cd762c91ff7c776f9e66succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are..”

Paul said in verse 22 “To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.”

Did Paul go against Jesus message in Matthew 23:15 as well as the Church of today?  I Each person should come to their own conclusion. I think it is important to see Paul as a human with all the traits we all possess. According to Psychology Today our memories are fallible, our perceptions are unreliable and ourinspirational-bible-quotes-2-600x600 world view, regardless how strongly believed, may well be contrary to the facts and even physical law. The Bible is a wonderful tool but to truly find God one should look within, Jesus true message. It is about love and helping one another, regardless of religion or belief system. It is about getting up in the morning and being thankful for the day and knowing that you have the power of God with you each minute of everyday. Simply let Love be your guide.

Defining a Spiritual Person

I would define a spiritual  person as a seeker of truth and using our God given gift of discernment to decipher all the distortion and confusion we all face in our daily lives. It is understanding that we live in inseparable worlds, the metaphysical and the physical, mind and matter, the unseen and seen. A spiritual person develops the gift of 3199b-critical2bthinking2bis2bthe2bsolution2bto2b2522fake2bnews25222bedward2bsnowdendiscernment, our sixth sense to help find their Way.

The Way is referred to as the Way by the World’s great teachers is not one single path, but many paths leading to the same destination. Jesus said “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

Lao Tzu often refers to Tao as the Way to Heaven. Jesus called the Tao the Kingdom of heaven or the Kingdom of God. Later orthodox Christians misunderstood Jesus’ teachings about the Kingdom. Jesus taught the Kingdom is within us and around us.0327dde18abc5356e1df11a3e9325722

Buddha tells us to practice the Way and to seek truth. Being in harmony with the Way is even better. Lao Tzu explains the Way is complete in itself. All blessings come from it, and holds nothing back to anyone. Krishna said those who find the Way are those who have love and forgiveness in their hearts.

spiritual person is not confined to one religion or belief system, but seek to find their Way using all the tools available today.

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?

Spiritual Love

Love is the greatest and most powerful emotion, being difficult to understand, much less describe. We can say it is divine energy radiating in all things. It is said, love conquers all 332c1b4e1fcc36309b4d93f710ed16fdand some believe it is better to have lost in love than to never have loved at all. As spiritual beings having a physical experience, our understanding of love is simply from a physical perspective.

In 1763, Emanuel Swedenborg said In Love and Wisdom, “Man knows that there is such a thing as love, but he does not know what love is. He knows that there is such a thing as love from common speech, as when it is said, he loves me, a king loves his subjects, and subjects love their king, a husband loves his wife, a mother her children, and conversely; also, this or that one main-qimg-870c72f211d98b257e0d813911b8f9daloves his country, his fellow citizens, his neighbor; and likewise of things abstracted from person, as when it is said, one loves this or that thing. But although the word love is so universally used, hardly anybody knows what love is.”

Probably one of the best ideas of love in modern times is the Dalai Lama. Exiled from his homeland many years ago when China invaded Tibet, the Dalai Lama had become the ambassador of love to the entire world. He traveled to one country after the other sharing goodwill. When asked about his religion, the does not speak of Tibetan Buddhism, he simply says, “My religion is love” and even refers to the Chinese government who exiled him, as “my friends, the enemy”, the same lesson Jesus taught, nearly 20 centuries 71679008_3197938443554977_4491621934244560896_n competionearlier. Most of us have to ponder, how can we love our enemies or those who hurt us.

As we evolve spiritually we begin to realize that the essence of our being is love, divine radiating energy that holds us together. Perhaps from a factual standpoint we could say spiritual love;

  1. is divine energy, Universal Intelligence beyond our comprehension.
  2. is unconditional and without judgement
  3. is the unification of the feminine and masculine within each of us
  4. is the acceptance of the self.
  5. the acceptance of oneness

what-you-seek.jpgSpiritual love is what our ancient teachers have been trying to convey to us for centuries. The ancient Chinese sage Lao Tzu said “Nothing but good comes to him who loves others as he loves himself” while Buddha tells us “When you see yourself in others, it is impossible to hurt anyone else.” Krishna said “to Me, all beings are the same. I hate none, and no one is more dear to Me than another.” and of course Jesus tells us, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

When we know our true self, our true nature, then perhaps, we will know the unlimited power of spiritual love.

The Self

When we use the term, “the self” we are usually referring to our identity, the ego, the face we wear to maintain our illusion of individuality. This includes our subconscious 12043058_897901876964651_8829313765351631143_n.jpgmind and everything our brains produce that make us believe we are separate and apart from everything in the universe. So what is the Self?

Philosophers have pondered that question for centuries. Socrates, believed to be born in 470 BC, maintained that our true self is our soul.   Rene Descartes, born 1596, thought there is one thing of which we can be absolutely certain: “I think, therefore I am.”  William James, born 1842, added that there’s one thing about our conscious experience that we’re never uncertain about; we’re never uncertain whose conscious experience it is. It’s mine, of course. But who is this “me”?  Jean-Paul Sartre, born 1905, believed every individual to be a “being for itself that has a self consciousnesses. 

Western philosophers typically try to figure out the theoretical truth, going from there to 68395567_2628362577247376_4371379888091824128_npractical applications. Eastern philosophers tend to speak of truth as something you approach through practice rather than theory. In important ways, Eastern philosophy does not even ask the same question and offers a different answer. Hinduism, Buddhism, meditation, and yoga are alternative approaches. Self to them, refers to what lies within each of us and is what remains when our bodies dies. Self is what we discover when we wake up and is all that exists. Self in Hinduism is called Atman, and the self is Brahman or God. The difference between self and God is our distinction we make ourselves. Remove that distinction and all that remains is God, or universal mind or Tao.

Gnostics, believed to be the first true Christians, referred to Self as the Divine spark, and God as the Divine Light from which the spark emanated. Even Jesus tells us in Luke 17:20–21, the Kingdom is not coming in any way you can observe. The Kingdom of God is68447731_2628372797246354_7655717426310414336_n already here, within your midst.

The word philosophy means “love of wisdom”. It is a love of wisdom that guides all of us to explore the fundamental questions about where did we come from, why are we here and where are we going. The search to understand the self is an individual effort.  We are all philosophers, with our opinions, ideas and concepts. It is interesting to explore what others think and believe, but ultimately, we have to find our own way. With the world at our fingertips, we can explore and discover how different cultures, religions and belief systems are so intertwined.

Our teachers speak of the self. Jesus said in the Dialogue of the Savior, “Those who have truly found the self within recognized that it exists everywhere”.  Buddha tells us  10481390_779094098814404_8884657755310544376_n“Everyone has recognized the Self, one’s essential nature. But few realized it.”  Krishna said “Recognized that all things exist in the One, and you will become the One.” Lao Tzu provided his insight in the Tao Te Ching, Wisdom comes from knowing oneself. He who knows himself is enlightened.”

Consider the self as your divine essence, your soul, your spirit living in a material world.  To know the self, this four step exercise can be performed to produce an acceleration of knowing the self. The first step is the cornerstone.  The moment contains love as we consciously seek that love in our awareness and understanding in everything we do. The second step is to realize the universe is one being. When we see others, family,  friends, strangers, and even enemies, 300px-Loowe see the the Creator.  The third step is Gaze into a mirror, and see the Creator.  Fourth step is Gaze into the world and all of creation and see the Creator. You can build your foundation of these steps by being mindful and  through  meditation, contemplation, and prayer.

I am not I. I am this one walking beside me whom I do not see, whom at times I manage to visit, and whom at other times I forget; who remains calm and silent while I talk, and forgives, gently, when I hate, who walks where I am not, who will remain standing when I die.

Juan Ramón Jiménez, won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1956.

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.

b9130b54e7d521fa35dea495cb539e7f (1)1. Love Infinite Intelligence

2. Love yourself

3. Love others as you love yourself

4. Love mother earth and nature.

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

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

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

Know yourself, accept yourself and realize we are all one tribe with Infinite Intelligence. Our Journey will be different paths, different understandings but the progression is one. Our job is simple, to be the light, to spread love and compassion wherever we go.  This short video provides some amazing facts about the human body.  Hope you enjoy and welcome to the Tribe of One.

Pineal Gland Activation, the Lamp of the Body.

Near the center of the brain at the top of the spinal cord, tucked in a groove between the two hemispheres, is a tiny gland, known today as the pineal gland. According to Science the pineal gland is the body’s internal clock and according to our ancient teachers, it is for our spiritual development.

First the science. The pineal gland  regulates the body’s circadian rhythms and  produces and secretes the hormone melatonin.  Circadian rhythms are the daily rhythms of the body, including signals that make someone feel tired, sleep, wake up, and feel alert; around the same time each day.  The circadian rhythms also plays  a crucial role in many other  biological processes, such as  hormone secretion, cardiovascular health, glucose homeostasis, and body temperature regulation. Energy balance is one of the most important cornerstones of metabolic processes, whereas energy imbalance is associated with many diseases  such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, to name a few. Out of balance could  mean sleeping too much or too little,  feeling active and restless in the middle of the night, or feeling sleepy at unusual times.

One problem,  published by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health,  is pineal gland calcification.  Science suggests the calcifications plays a role in the development of Alzheimer disease.  Fluoridated water is believed to be one of the chief causes of calcification.  Evidence also suggests that children reach puberty earlier now as a consequence of fluoridated water. We are told  fluoridated water was to prevent tooth decay, but does it really?

With all its research, science still does not fully understand the pineal gland, but seems to agree it is indispensable to a process most of us take for granted. More research is needed to understand additional pineal gland functions and determine how light and melatonin affect everyday health. 

Along those same lines is  another interesting  discovery related to the neurons in our brain. They have the ability to produce photons of light, known as “biophotons”. They are capable of communicating through light. According to the biophoton theory developed on the base of these discoveries, biophoton light is emitted from in the cells of the organism, more precisely, in the DNA molecules of their nuclei.  Light is constantly released and absorbed by the DNA and connects all cells, tissues, and organs within the body. This serves as our  main communication network and as the principal regulating instance for all life processes. The consciousness-like coherence properties of the biophoton fields are closely related and indicate its possible role as an interface to the non-physical realms of mind, psyche and consciousness. tumblr_n3kf3xORWT1r7ahobo1_1280

This discovery  reminds me what Jesus said in The Gospel of Thomas,

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.”
If they say to you, “Is it you?”
say, “We are its children and the chosen of the living father.”

All+in+Your+Perspective+(Luke+11_34-36)The pineal gland is known as the third eye, the sixth chakra or energy center, the color indigo.  Ancient traditions knew of the pineal or third eye and all its mysteries. They knew of the pineal role in our spiritual development and communication with spiritual beings. Within Taoist self cultivation, the third eye, known as Ancestral Cavity, is located between and behind the eyes and serves as the cavity of profound and ancient knowledged and can be accessed through meditation and contemplation.

In Buddhism, the third eye refers to Eye of Consciousness, seeing the world beyond 10-minphysical eyes. In Hinduism the third eye is the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge..

The third eye is mentioned in Matthew 6:22 when Jesus said, “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”

In the Law of One, the third eye, the indigo-ray or 6th chakra is our gateway to connect with Infinite Intelligence.  In order to connect, we have to unblock our energy centers, by dealing with the negative and positive emotions that has shaped our lives and freeing the pathways for the flow of energy.

chakra-details_com_Each Chakra is a energy center and blockage varies from  person to person.  The seventh chakra  or violet ray is unimpaired and is used as a energy receptor.  The sixth Chakra or indigo ray, our pineal gland,  can be blocked by feeling or belief in unworthiness.  The fifth Chakra, known as the blue-ray, is our understandings of ourselves and our communication with others. The fourth Chakra, the heart chaka, known as the green-ray, is our understanding of universal love or compassion. The third Chakra, or yellow-ray is what we call the ego. The second Chakra, or orange-ray is the emotional or personal energy center. The 1st chakra, or red-ray is basic and fundamental, but is where the Kundalini lies asleep waiting to be awakened.  In Hinduism, the Kundalini,  the coil serpent  is the divine power in an individual, and waiting to awaken this power to affect enlightenment.

The serpent is referenced in John 3: 13-15 , when Jesus said,   “Just as Moses lifted up the snake  in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up. For everyone believes may have eternal life”.

Moses rod represents the spine.  Spiritual awakening is a process. It is about energy.    As66718af744cb687d02811dec8d6d8168  the energy begins to flow freely through the energy centers, it begins to gradually unblock and balancing begins.  You may experience unexplained phenomena and emotions as you meditate and contemplate your  true-self.

Our pineal gland is already active.  We all have some degree of intuition or discernment, a sense of knowing that will expand the more we unblock our energy centers and more  energy begins to  flow. The the pineal gland will grow stronger  and may even awaken the Kundalini.

The light in the body is the single eye, our pineal gland,  in the middle of the forehead luke-11-34-36-lseen in deep meditation, our gateway and connection to Infinite intelligence.  We can perceive through our pineal gland, our spiritual eye,  the love and light of the One Infinite Creator.  By fixing the vision of the two eyes at the point between the eyebrows in the interiorized concentration of meditation, one can focus the positive negative optical energy of the right and left eyes and unite the currents in the sign eye of the divine light. The more we practice,  the more the body and mind inwardly illumined with astral light and wisdom, receives indescribable joy  and unending guidance of divine wisdom.

Why have we forgotten our our true Nature?

Have we forgotten our true nature? Perhaps one reason is we have been programmed since birth. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we are and who we become. It is a worldwide system of control to keep us occupied, and has become what we believe is normal.050d84f574c93d469053b6c7332e6895a8e0ba-wm

Today, our world is in a confused and distorted state. Many begin to seek the truth, seeking  answers to the age old questions of our identity. Most find this task difficult because society requires most to work at jobs 8 hours a day to pay for food, shelter and take care of families. We are constantly bombarded with corporate messaging creating fear. It becomes a confusing, distorted and arduous journey with many different paths, making it difficult to wake up spiritually and even more difficult  to follow a spiritual path.

From a very young age we are programmed by our parents who were programed by their parents, and the vicious and seemly unbreakable cycle goes on and on.  We go to schools, churches, cff285a056c19538eb9d01c42865898csynagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places where we are told how and what to think and how to believe and know God. Then we follow blindly for the rest of our lives, never seeking the truth about our true selves.

Who controls these systems and why do they want control? Perhaps it is to keep us from knowing our true nature, knowing our true self .  Each of us have a higher power within, a divine light waiting to be awakened. We are all spiritual beings with a body and mind b0979c556c4ca95796ea254343c2464fmade of pure energy. Our thoughts create our reality through emotions and actions . Fear, control, greed, are just some negative emotions while love and helping others are some of the positive.  We only think what we have been taught, and we are what we think!

 Humanity has been in a deep sleep since our beginning and in order to begin the spiritual journey, one needs to wake up and ask the age old question, “Who am I”, why am I here” and “where am I going”.

In ancient times, there was a mystical poem about us called The Hymn of the Pearl. It may be one of the most foretelling Gnostic scriptures telling us of our true nature.  The PS102hymn is commonly interpreted as Gnostic view of the human condition; we are spirits lost in a world of matter and forgetful of our true origin. This state of affairs could change by a revelatory message delivered by a divine messenger. Perhaps the Law of One is that divine messenger.

Scott Mandelker, PHD, teacher and scholar said the Law of One material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”.

angelIt started in 1981, when three members of the L/L research, Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot, Carla Rueckert, a devote Christian , and James McCarty, the sole survivor today, received a narrow band transmission from a Social memory complex named Ra. Ra stated,

“ We have watched your group. We have been called to your group, for you have a need for the diversity of experiences in channeling which go with a more intensive, or as you might call it, advanced approach to the system of studying the patterns of the illusions of your body, your mind, and  your spiritwhich you call seeking the truth. We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same.”

Many say it is a hoax but the complexity of the responses, which are so masterfully and skillfully crafted that no human could possibly have the knowledge or ability to create the responses. Others may say it is from the devil or satan.  But in 1 John 4:1 of the New Testament says “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see 2bd62658ab714eee2e561a6315770208--love-and-light-quotes-imageswhether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

The sessions open with, “I am Ra. I greet you in the love and the light of our Infinite Creator” and closes with, “I am Ra. I leave you in the glory and the peace of the One Creator. Rejoice in the love/light, and go forth in the power of the One Creator. In joy, we leave you. Adonai.

We have free-will to determine for ourselves if  the Law of One is the revelatory message delivered by a divine messenger.  The contact lasted from January 1981 to March 15, 1984 and was recorded and documented. The transcript contains over 2360 questions and answers in 106 sessions with a scientific and metaphysical vocabulary with a searchable database available free to all.

everything-800x737 (1)For me the Law of One provides insight on something else that occurred  38 years earlier, when thirteen ancient books, called “codices,” containing over fifty texts, was discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. Known as the Nag Hammadi Scriptures, scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, 114 secret sayings of Jesus,  and the Gospel of Truth  and many more thought to be destroyed by early Christianity. The texts were translated in the 1970’s and are available today.  I have been studying the Gospel of Thomas for years and it was difficult to understand until I began studying the Law of One. It helped with the interpretation of the 114 secret teachings of Jesus and other sacred text, including the Bible.  It simply provides a different and refreshing new perspective on what we have been taught. Of course today, 2000 years later, many refuse to believe they may hold any value because they were not canonized by the Catholic Church, and actually labeling them heresy.  But interestingly Father Francis Tiso, a very controversial Priest, talks about our divine spark in this video.

We have the world at our fingertips to explore new and exciting ways to discover, connect The_Ra_Material_-_The_Law_of_One_-_Quote_-_Spirituality_Metaphysics_Spiritual_Heart_Chakras_Love_Compassion_86and love our Creator.  It all starts by looking within and loving others as you love yourself, love all of nature, and service to others. Realize your thoughts, emotions and actions allow you to become more aware of your true nature. Meditation, contemplation and prayer are the gateway to understanding the higher self; connecting with Infinite Intelligence, our true nature.

The Way of Divine Energy

The wisdom and insight we can learn from ancient texts is never ending. More than 5000 years ago the ancient Chinese masters of  esoteric healing came to the understanding y2019m06d22_workshop_01that everything is composed of the same energetic substance  called Qi.  They observed the oneness and wholeness in all existence and  everything is energetically interconnected as one body.    The ancient Chinese believed all transformations happened under the influence of Qi.  Birth, aging and death of all things with Heaven and Earth, including wind, water, mountains,  forest, humans,  animals  and insects are caused by and formed out of Qi. Qi is the constant energy motion within all things.

Ancient China’s ISMs Confucianism TaoismOne ancient Chinese text of mystery and beauty is the The Daodejing, believed to be written by the sage Lao Tzu.  It is the most translated text into English next to the Bible.  Daoism is the second of the three major philosophies of China. The Daodejing responds to the political, family centered morality of Confucius;  rejecting man-made hierarchies and arguing the value of simplicity and humility over power and ambition. It can be compared today with Capitalism and Spirituality.  The dao is the way of nature in a universe that consists of opposites in harmony, and de (virtue, integrity) is an innate human strength. Following the dao brings humans freedom, serenity, and longevity.    The original conception of Dao was simply the observation that reality has a certain way about it. The “Way’ encompasses all of existence. Some may call it the way to God, images (67)lao an atheist may call it the laws of nature, all pointing to the same thing, something I call Infinite Intelligence.  

The Dao can be considered  as two-fold, one represented by the law of physics describing the universe and it’s manifestations such as energy and light; and at the personal level describing the human sphere and its manifestation such as our thoughts, emotions and actions. The  Daodejing  or Tao Te Ching was trying to tell us these principles. If we can understand these forces are inseparable, the physical and metaphysical, it will make our spiritual journey richer and more fruitful. 

If one looks for Dao, there is nothing solid to see; If one listens for it, there is nothing loud enough to hear. Yet if one uses it, it is inexhaustible.

Consider the Dao as Infinite Intelligence, pure Universal Energy of divine mystery and the sage Lao Tzu a divine messenger of the 5th century BCE.  Lao Tzu, Buddha, Krishna images (67)and Jesus were divine messengers providing the way for all to see.  Lao Tzu tells us the “Act in harmony with the Way and you will become the Way.  Nurture the way within yourself and you will live a virtuous life.”   Buddha said ” Those that follow the way are like dry grass. They need to be protected from the flames of desire.”  While Krishna tells us ” Let those who are wise seek the Way. Those who find it will not return. ” The apocalypse Jesus tells us to “Open the door to the Way that is within you, so that you may be a guide to those who wish to follow you. Encourage all those who are ready to follow the Way and receive its blessings.” 

 The Daoists understood Dao as the appropriate way for humans to live their lives. But for the Daoists, following the way was participating in the Dao of nature, the changes and rhythms of the universe and the natural world.  To neglect the way of nature was the root of society’s misery. They believe if a person follows the “Way” or “path” and lives a images (5)life of virtue, then the way of nature, heaven, Earth, and humanity will be balanced.

There is a strong element of mysticism by losing one’s sense as a separate, individual self while perceiving a much greater reality. This mystical sense is both encouraged by and expressed through particular practices and ways of being in the Daodejing.  One of the most important practices involves diminishing the ego;  such as the cravings for attention, recognition, and control. True sages were not interested in the material world  but for the welfare of 66cfa3a8df5d499550338f2a824ee448--lao-tzu-quotes-zen-quotesothers. “Sages blend into the world,” says the Daodejing. To blend into the world, one lives a simple existence. 

A simple existence is the understanding  Qi is the Catalyst for everything.    The ancient Chinese believed that the Qi of Yin and Yang fulfils the “Great Void” (Wuji) enveloping all things and leaving nothing outside its boundary.  

“Dao is forever and he that possess it, Though his body ceases, is not destroyed.”

The goal is balance yin, our feminine side, and yang, our masculine side and make into one. According to the Chinese, energetic fields are divided into Yin and Yang. The theory of yin and yang energy represents the duality of balance and harmony within the body as well as the universe. Earth energy is Yin while Heaven energy is Yang. Those who master and balance the bodies Yin-Yang energy were considered “Tian Shen” or Xian meaning “immortals”.

For example balancing yin and yang, the feminine and masculine, and the  114th saying of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas. Simon Peter said to him, “Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of life.”  Jesus said, “I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven.

 

The Valley Spirit never dies.
It is named the Mysterious Female.
And the doorway of the Mysterious Female
Is the base from which Heaven and Earth sprang.
It is there within us all the while;
Draw upon it as you will, it never runs dry.

In my humble opinion,  woman and man are equal and the more we work together in the name of love, compassion and service to others, we can create the world where every human can learn and discover their true hqdefault (1)selves.  The sage Laozi said about the self, “ Some people recognize the self and are amazed. Other people who hear of the Self just wonder. Still others do not understand at all.” He also speaks of love when he said “ The world is transformed by those who love all people, just as you love yourself”.

It starts with us!!!!!

 

 In 1972, excavation in the Mawangdui Han Dynasty tombs in Hunan Province uncovered a silk relic that portrayed drawing of Do yin postures dating prior to the third century BCE. This silk scroll is consider the first complete set of Qigong movement with over half of these illustrates posture are of animal movements used to purge the body’s channels to regulate the Yin and Yang and treat illnesses.
