The Russian Defense Ministry provided a rare update on the casualties the country’s armed forces have suffered during the ongoing military offensive in Ukraine, on Friday.
“Unfortunately, during the special military operation there have been losses among our comrades-in-arms. To date, 1,351 servicemen have died and 3,825 have been injured,” the deputy head of the Russian General Staff, Colonel General Sergey Rudskoy told a media briefing.
The official did not provide any figures on soldiers who have potentially gone missing in action or been taken prisoner amid the conflict. The Ukrainian side has sustained heavy casualties (around 30,000) over the past month, Rudskoy clarified. According to Russian military estimates, around 14,000 Ukrainian troops have been killed, and a further 16,000 have been injured.
Ukraine’s military has sustained major losses in hardware, with nearly 1,600 tanks and other armored vehicles destroyed, he alleged, adding that the Russian offensive has largely destroyed Kiev’s air and anti-aircraft forces, while its navy has effectively ceased to exist.
Russia explains why no ceasefire amid peace talks with Ukraine
The official casualty figures provided by the Russian military differ drastically from the estimates from the Ukrainian side. According to the latest claims by Kiev, around 16,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in the conflict, with hundreds of tanks, armored vehicles, and artillery pieces destroyed.
Kiev, however, remains tight-lipped on its own casualties. The most recent figure was announced by President Volodymyr Zelensky in mid-March, when he said that around 1,300 Ukrainian soldiers had died in combat.
Moscow sent troops into Ukraine in late February, following a seven-year standoff over Kiev’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, and Russia’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered Minsk Protocol was designed to regularize the status of the regions within the Ukrainian state.
Russia has now demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join NATO. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
Liz Harrington discussed President Trump’s lawsuit that was announced today with John Solomon
“President Trump is going on offense. He’s naming names and he’s going after these liars who tried to rig the 2016 election… and when they failed to stop President Trump from winning the Presidency, they used it to spy on him…
… it’s time hold people accountable and that’s what President Trump’s doing.”
Attorney Thomas Renz on FDA Denied Informed Consent
The FDA Denied Informed Consent—Jabs Need to Be Pulled off the Market
Thomas Renz: “There is not a single other product available on the market anywhere—drug, chainsaws, hand grenades—not one that causes as much death and carnage to consumers. We don’t have one product that is more dangerous than this vaccine.”
“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 spirit, which you call seeking the truth. We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same.”
That was the initial contacted by an advanced extraterrestrials from the sixth density or dimension named Ra, also known as a Social Memory Complex. Ra contacted L/L Research (Love and Light) because of the three members cohesiveness. The L&L members were Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot; Carla Rueckert, the instrument RA used for channeling known as “tuned trance telepathy”, a devoted Christian; and James McCarty, the scribe and sole survivor today. The contacted lasted from 1981 to 1984 totaling 106 sessions through “tuned trance telepathy”. During those years Don asked 2360 questions and RA provided answers that addressed much that is happening in our world today. Answers would not be given if it infringe on free-will. James McCarthy recorded and documented each session and is known as the The Law of One. The Law of One is rich, vast and esoteric with the some of the same conceptual teachings all religions. According to RA , “The information buried within has to do with a deeper understanding of love and light, and the attempts of infinite intelligence through many messengers to teach/learn those entities of your sphere”.
Scott Mandelker PhD, said this material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”. Scott has been studying the material most of his life and has dedicated his time, wisdom and understanding to a very important message. His reading and commentary can be found in his each of his 226 videos of Law of One series , available on YouTube. The videos are labeled by session corresponding with the online database.
The Science of Channeling webinar, CHI colleague and IONS Director of Research, Dr. Helané Wahbeh, speaks about the overwhelming amount of scientific evidence for psychic phenomena thanks to a branch of scientific study we call noetic science. The word “noetic” comes from a Greek word meaning intuitive knowing or mystical awareness. Dr. Wahbeh comes from a long line of trance channelers so she brings a unique lens to the scientific study of channeling.
To know the self is to know the universe. An entity which does not know itself sees many things and believes them. An entity which starts upon the path of spiritual seeking finds one after another landmark disappearing. It realizes that it does not know anything, that it cannot depend upon its five senses or upon logical thought in order to make skillful choices within third density.
Perhaps the goal of knowing the self in the end is to find that one does not know and cannot understand, except within that great open and radiant energy which is called the heart. – Q’uo
According to The Law of One, also known as the Ra Material, our life purpose is to evolve spirituality and we are given more catalyst today more than anytime in history. We evolve by learning the ways of love and wisdom, to love unconditionally and to be of service to others. The positive path includes loving our creator first and foremost, love others as we love ourselves, as Jesus tells us, love and care for nature and understand we are co-creator with our thoughts, emotions and actions. Through meditation, contemplation and prayer, we attempt to connect with Infinite Intelligence. At death, those whose life met 51% on the positive path will graduate or be harvested, or reborn to the next density or dimension.
There is also a negative path, such as the ones that want to control us. They are service to self, control of others, fear, anger and every other negative emotions. To be harvested from the negative path requires 95% and very few are harvested that take this path.
It is all about free will, so you get to choose your life path. The penalty for not getting the 51%, you get to do it again, but there is a catch: you do not remember; that is, unless you’re a child. There are many stories from children supporting reincarnation and many case studies supporting reincarnation from a scientific approach with past life videos.
Harvest is the similar concept as the Mosaic Religions after death, judgement of your life, except there is no hell. Harvest is even mentioned in the New Testament.
35 Then Jesus began traveling throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every illness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he was deeply moved with compassion for them, because they were troubled and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he told his disciples, “The harvest is vast, but the workers are few. 38 So ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest.”
The Law of One was the results of a Contact made with the L/L research in 1981 and lasted until 1984. The three members, Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot; Carla Rueckert, the instrument RA used for channel known as “tuned trance telepathy”, a devoted Christian; and James McCarty, the sole survivor today. The contact was made by an advanced extraterrestrial named RA, the humble messenger of the Law of One. The group recorded and documented over 2360 questions and answers in 106 sessions from 1981 to 1984.
It even speak of the current events today. In session 11.18Questioner: Then we have crusaders from Orion coming to this planet for mind control purposes. How do they do this?
Ra: As all, they follow the Law of One observing free will. Contact is made with those who call. Those then upon the planetary sphere act much as do you to disseminate the attitudes and philosophy of their particular understanding of the Law of One which is service to self. These become the elite. Through these, the attempt begins to create a condition whereby the remainder of the planetary entities are enslaved by their own free will.
It is fairly obvious by now that the media has been programming the masses for a very long time through their propaganda.
The Law of One provides insight and purpose to our life on earth, which is of third density or dimension of seven dimensions. All things are governed by universal laws, whether physical or spiritual. It is a system of design by Infinite Intelligence, known as God and many other names, for us to find our way home.
When You are AWAKE, You will realize, WE are the LIGHT, WE are the TRUTH, We are the WAY, We are CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS, the second coming of CHRIST
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!
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 families, 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.
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.
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.
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 that 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.
One 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, 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 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 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 others. “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”.
The different sacred texts from different cultures of the world have essentially the same message. 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 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.
Death and the after-life is something we will all face eventually. Our limited understanding is guided by our belief system; what we subconsciously learned and consciously taught. It is the school of life, with countless confusion and distortions with so many belief systems and religions. It may be as simple as to what you believe will be your reality.
Death is the release of our life force in order to continue our spirit journey. The ancient chinese described qi as “life force”, Hindu called it prana, Christians and Jews refer to it as the soul and the Muslims call it Rūḥ, our immortal self. Gnostics called it the divine spark; spirit, essense and the list goes on.
Our life force is who we are, energy within our bodies, feeling all the aches and pains as we age, physically and emotionally. We are trying to understand our purpose. We learn and practice tai chi, chi gong, yoga, walk, jog and meditate to cultivate our life force just to face the daily challenges and choices. We look around and wonder if this it, why are we here! Based on the Law of One our purpose is to learn the ways of love with wisdom, and each of us have our own special lessons to learn. At the end of our life we have a “life review”. If you attained 51 percent positive, you will leave 3rd density and advance to the the 4th density. Seven densities , realms, dimensions or heavens are terms used in religious and mythology ancient texts.
If you do not make the 51 percent positive then you will have to redo 3rd density. Your reincarnation can be anywhere in the universe. Even Emanuel Swedenborg, the eighteenth-century mystic and spiritual explorer, spoke of the purpose of death. He inspired some the world’s greatest minds and souls like Helen Keller, D.T. Suzuki, and Ralph Waldo Emerson,to name a few.
Law of One also provides insight on death which states, ” the process of the physical death is as we have described before: one in which there is aid available and the only need at death is the releasing of that entity from its body by those around it and the praising of the process by those who grieve. By these means may the mind/body/spirit which has experienced physical death be aided, not by the various perceptions of careful and repeated rituals.”
Near Death experiences (NDE) also provides insight and some sort of understanding of the afterlife. People that have experienced NDE sometimes describe a floating sense of freedom from pain and of complete wellbeing; or they had unusual abilities, such as being able to see walls and also see through them, and being able to “hear” the unspoken thoughts of the people nearby; They sometime say they experienced a “life review” while at the same time, they re-viewed, and experienced being on the receiving end of, all their actions throughout life; Some went beyond the light, seeing cities of light and knowledge. When they chose to return, it was because of a love connection with one or more living people. The other half say they didn’t choose to return: They either were told or made to return, or they were just suddenly “back” in their bodies.
Physical death releases our life force; our final escape from this realm. It is interesting to note how emotions around us affect even the death process. Our thoughts, emotions and actions create our reality not only in this world but also the next. Many seek gnosis, the knowledge of spiritual mysteries, to better understand our situation. Esoteric knowledge of spiritual truth was held by the ancient Jews, Christians and Greeks. They believed it was essential to salvation.
What stands out for me to be essential is the emotion of love, the emotion that conquers all things. Also our intentions regarding our thoughts, emotions and actions. If we fear death, a negative emotion, then death may be exactly that. That is why we are here to learn about love and the wisdom to use it.
Our ancient teachers had much wisdom to say about death and immorality.
Jesus said in the Apocryphon of John, “I am returning to the place for which I came, If you wish to follow me, you may. But you will not enter the Kingdom until you have perfected yourselves.”
Krishna said in the Bhagavad Gita, ” When the self leaves the body it will go whatever the attention is focused on the time of death. Therefore remember me at all times. When your mind absorbed in Me you will come to Me”
Lao Tzu said in the Tao Te Ching, ” Those who are not attached to life will not fear death. They are more fortunate than those who give life too much meaning. “
“One who has lived wisely does not fear death.” The Buddha
Being more positive than negative with your thoughts, emotions and actions; being aware of your intention regarding your thoughts, emotions and actions; do not get attached to the material world; and live your life with wisdom; all teachings from our Masters to not only assist us with our life journey, but our impending death and afterlife.
What is God, the age-old question and it certainly has been mine. Since the beginning of time, as we understand it, man has struggled with the God concept. Most of us have our core beliefs from our childhood; others seek to understand through contemplation, reflection, meditation and prayer; all have a desire to have a personal relationship with God.
God is known by many names and according to religions of the world, in order to know God, we should follow their beliefs, rules and rituals. Based on my childhood and how I was taught about the Bible, God would be on a throne judging us for our behavior and our purpose was to worship God. Each of us have our own imaginations and beliefs about God, mostly from our childhood.
Through the centuries, different religions with different Gods making our understanding of God even more confusing. I always believed there was only one God, just called by many different names. Furthermore, in Judaism and Christianity alone, there is much confusion for me. Yahweh, is the God of the Old testament and Jewish Tanakh, is known as the God of the Israelites. The name was revealed to Moses as four Hebrew consonants (YHWH) called the Tetragrammaton. Consistent with Old Testament narratives, Yahweh or Jehovah was regarded as the stern creator God who justly punishes humanity for disobedience.
The Gnostics referenced Yaldabaoth, the old testament god as a ‘false god of this world’ and was known for his evil deeds. They believed the god of the Jews was the true devil who claimed for himself the title of ‘creator god’ and inverted the roles of good and evil through deception, presenting himself as the ‘benevolent father’ of mankind and slandering the Serpent of wisdom as ‘the devil’ and ‘enemy of man’. This accusatory inversion began with the creation of the Christian Bible at the end of the 1st century and has deceive many generations throughout the millennia. It should be noted our medical community uses a staff or rod with a snake curled around it, call the Rod of Asclepius, the ancient mythical god of medicine .
In the Law of One, Yahweh is mentioned 19 times and provides quite an in-depth detail about Yahweh’s involvement on earth. The Orion Group, the negative entities of our universe also plays a role in what happened in the old testament as well as today. Perhaps In Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” Was that God, Yahweh or Yaldabaoth? Who was Jesus talking about when the Jews said Abraham was their father. Jesus said in John 8:44 “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.”
Some Gnostic groups saw Jesus as being sent by the supreme being, to bring gnosis or knowledge to the Earth. The Law of One referenced Jesus 22 times and said “This entity was desirous of entering this planetary sphere in order to share the love vibration in as pure a manner as possible.”
Now let’s look at the New testament and how the church leaders constructed the concept of God. The Trinity aformal doctrine and foundation of the Christian faith, the father, Jesus and the Holy Ghost, meaning one God in three. The term trinity is not found in the Bible. The only reference of the three in the bible is Matthew 28:19 after Jesus resurrection. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Of course we all know how easily this could have been added by a church father or scribe.
The formal doctrine of the Trinity was the result of early church fathers attempts to explain the Christian God. It was first used by Tertullian at the close of the 2nd century. It was discussed, debated and finally clarified as divinity of the spirit and affirmed at the Council of Constantinople in 381. However scholars today generally agree that there is no doctrine of the Trinity as such in either the Old or New Testaments. The Trinity was a way church fathers could explain Jesus as the son of God if not God. A search of the Nag Hammadi Library of the Father, son and the holy spirit did not come up with any results. With the possibility of the corruption of the message of two major religions, perhaps it is time to pause, and seek the truth in our own way. Jesus was the messenger of love and in the message he was telling us what the church fathers have failed to teach.
In John 10:34, Jesus tells the Pharisees that it is written in the Law that “you are gods”. He is quoting from Psalm 82:6 where it says, “I said you are gods, sons of the Most High. All of you.”
In John 14:12 Jesus said , “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
In the Gospel of Thomas Jesus said in saying 3, If your leaders tell you, “Look, the kingdom is in heaven,” then the birds of heaven will precede you. If they say to you, “It’s in the sea,” then the fish will precede you. But the kingdom is inside you and it is outside you. When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you dwell in poverty and you are poverty.
The Gnostics believe that within each of us is a divine spark, a part of God. Some may call it soul or spirit. Regardless of what label man uses, God is a Divine Universal Energy within each of us waiting to be awakened by our acknowledgement by seeking the truth.
According to the Law of One , we are on earth to learn the ways of love, compassion, wisdom and be of service to others. We get as many opportunities as we need to learn the required lessons. If not, we die and do it again until we get it right. The big problem for us when we do it again, we do not remember anything from our previous lives, unless you’re a child, and then you may remember for a short period before forgetfulness sets in.
Regardless of the number of past lives, God, or the Great Universal Energy never leaves and is just waiting for us to discover the power within. I cannot emphasise the importance of the a recent discovery in 1945, 114 secret sayings of Jesus known as the Gospel of Thomas and 50 other Gnostic texts. According to scholars, the discovery provided striking differences from orthodox beliefs. Instead of being separate from God, we are One with God. Instead of sin and repentance, Jesus speaks of illusion and enlightenment. And finally, Instead of Jesus being Lord and God, we are all from the same source, and Jesus is our spiritual guide.
Another saying 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). This saying is for each of us to ponder and consider as each of Jesus wisdom sayings in the Gospel of Thomas.
Buddha, another master teacher said before you set foot on the path master yourself; and Lao Tzu said, ” The Way (God) is complete in itself. All blessings come from it and it holds nothing back from anyone.” Krishna said in the Bhagavad Gita, “Those who seek to find the One without ceasing, will find the Lord dwelling in their own hearts.”
With love and compassion in your heart, thoughts, emotions and actions, look within; through meditation, contemplation, prayer and study, you will find that Great Universal Energy that we call God.
“The heart is like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love. What seeds will you plant there?”
In the last posting we discussed how the Christian Gnostics had some of the same spiritual concepts as Buddha, Lao Tzu and Kristna. You also may be surprised how closely related Jesus’ teachings are to the eastern mystics traditions. The traditions are a spiritual way of life that includes developing respect, trust, and love for all and discovering our full potential as true human beings. All spiritual concepts ask us to look within ourselves to find answers. The answers are in plain site, as Jesus tells us in various parables. “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.” (Saying 5)
Perhaps it is time to listen to our higher self. We all have deep seeded belief systems, affecting our understanding of not only Jesus’ parables and metaphors, but our understanding of God. Many have been engrained with orthodox Christians sources. Today we have the world at our fingertips to help us understand Jesus true teaching to help us find our way back home. The Gospel of Thomas provides new insight into the true teachings of Jesus. This 12 minute video provides an overview of the Gospel of Thomas.
Last time we discussed verses 1 through 8, Jesus’ message was to seek the truth, look within ourselves to find the kingdom. Many believed Jesus died for our sins. Perhaps one should consider he died so we could see the light and to follow his message and be like him; pure love and light. This is up to each one of us to contemplate and decide for ourselves. Now let’s discuss verses 9 through 16.
(9) Jesus said, “Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up. Others fell on the rock, they did not take root in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate them. And others fell on the good soil and it produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure.”
The seed parable describes the divine seed God planted within each of us. In order to grow, one should find their way by seeking the truth, being caution of the pitfalls of life and false teachings that produce no fruit. Those who discover the truth, will begin to sprout and grow. The more you cultivate the divine seed with a fertile foundation, the more abundant your love and light grows. The illuminating light and love affects those around you, doubling in measure.
Jesus said, ” The truth will set you free.”
(10) Jesus said, “I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.”
In a similar parable, Verse (16), Jesus said, “Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to cast upon the world. They do not know that it is dissension which I have come to cast upon the earth: fire, sword, and war. For there will be five in a house: three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand solitary. Comparable sayings in Luke 12:49 , and Matthew 10:34-36,
Most would agree Jesus message has cast fire on the world. He is known throughout the world as either a spiritual leader, messiah, divine prophet, Jewish preacher, religious leader, son of man, son of God and even God. Was Jesus’ message love and enlightenment or sin and repentance as the Orthodox view teaches? That difference has divided many, including religions and families. We have been indoctrinated since birth with the orthodox view. The Muslims and Christians seem to stay in conflict, both believe in Jesus but in different roles. All those in conflict believe they are right. In the end, each will stand alone.
(11) Jesus said, “This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. In the days when you consumed what is dead, you made it what is alive. When you come to dwell in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?”
All of reality as we realize it, is an illusion and will pass. Even the illusion of birth and death will be realized as such. Everything is in flux, ever changing to a higher state of consciousness. We pass through periods of incarnation, eventually returning to the spirit world of light. To learn our lessons we must become two to be able to come into this world of illusion, with all the confusion and distortions. When we consume what is dead, we make alive. We are all here to learn our lessons plus the ways of love and wisdom and must return to the positive polarity to return to the One. We are here now as two, so what will you do in this material world to return to the one.
(12) The disciples said to Jesus, “We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?”
Jesus said to them, “Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.” Comparable saying can be found in Luke 9:46-48, Luke 22:24-27, Matt 18:1-4, and Mark 9:33-35. It is interesting to note, Jesus mentions no names in those parables.
James was the brother of Jesus, and the leader of the Church in Jerusalem until his death in 62 CE. There are five books of James in the New testament. Also discovered later was The Secret Book of James and The Apocryphon of James. James did not drink wine or eat meat or cut his hair. He was found kneeling and praying to the point his knees were like a camels because he was alway kneeling. He was an extraordinary character and righteous. In the Secret Book of James, he presents himself as the person who sends the other followers of Jesus on their missions. Today, Christianity has followed more of Paul’s teaching, Many biblical scholars and lay Christians have noted that Jesus preached almost exclusively about the kingdom of heaven, while Paul highlighted justification by faith—and not vice versa. Some conclude that they preached two different gospels. Others argue that really they both preached justification; still others say it’s all about the kingdom. The true teacher is within each of us, our higher selves.
(13) Jesus said to his disciples, “Compare me to someone and tell me whom I am like.”
Simon Peter said to him, “You are like a righteous angel.”
Matthew said to him, “You are like a wise philosopher.”
Thomas said to him, “Master, my mouth is wholly incapable of saying whom you are like.”
Jesus said, “I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring which I have measured out.”
And he took him and withdrew and told him three things. When Thomas returned to his companions, they asked him, “What did Jesus say to you?”
Thomas said to them, “If I tell you one of the things which he told me, you will pick up stones and throw them at me; a fire will come out of the stones and burn you up.”
Consider after each answer, Jesus responded by telling them he was not their master and that they were drunken by his presence and their perceived idea of who he was. They looked upon Jesus as a being unlike themselves. When believing Jesus was more than he was, they were unable to see themselves as equals. When Jesus took Thomas aside, he said three things or words which could have been along the lines of,’ “We are equal.” “We are the from the light” or “we are all sons of God”. That would justify Thomas’ response to the others when asked what was said.
(14) Jesus said to them, “If you fast, you will give rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick among them. For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth – it is that which will defile you.” Comparable says are Luke 11:1-4,Luke 9:1-6, Luke 10:1-12, and Matt 6:2-18,
This one is probably more difficult than most because of the ways we have been taught since birth. Consider we all have a higher self, a divine spark within; a divinity from God. We are suppose to allow our higher self guide us because we have all the answers within. Like overindulgence with food, fasting for too long also harms the body. We have the ability to heal when we seek the truth and look within ourselves as Jesus said in saying 2 and 3. What we eat will not defile us but what comes out of our mouth will.
(15) Jesus said, “When you see one who was not born of woman, prostrate yourselves on your faces and worship him. That one is your father. Comparable saying is John 10:30
Not born of a woman is our father. Again, Jesus is telling us we are all equal with Jesus. When we worship other humans, there is division instead of uniting and finding our way home. We are all divine beings of infinite worth and we are here to learn our lessons specific to us, and the ways of love and wisdom.
Each parable has many answers and within your own reflection you will find a greater answer than anyone else could give you. Perhaps we should consider the Gospel of Thomas was used by the others to write the Books of the New testament. Next month we review the next group of the 114 secret sayings of Jesus.
Remember a time long ago, when we were children. As we were being born we were probably asking ourselves, “do I really want to do this?” I have a dear friend with a PhD in Linguistics, who told me about his birth. He was very serious , remembers the day he was born, recalling he did not want to come out. He resisted but he was pushed out against his will. We talk and laugh about that moment often.
According to the Law of One, we actually had a choice to come here, even pick our parents and our condition. We came here to learn, and by design, we simply do not remember. One thing for certain, we are here now, in this crazy mixed up world full of distortions and fabrications of truths. The Law of One also provided insight about us being graded on our performance during our lifetime with a positive/negative grading system. 51% positive you have your ticket home. Less than that, it is a do over, reincarnation and not just here, but anywhere in the Universe. Once again we do not remember anything from our past experiences. This concept is basically in line with eastern belief systems.
Jesus said, “The man old in days will not hesitate to ask a small child seven days old about the place of life, and he will live. For many who are first will become last, and they will become one and the same.” (Saying 4 Gospel of Thomas)
As infants, we learn to sit up, crawl, stand and then our first step. By the time we are able to communicate effectively, we have forgotten who we really are and our purpose. Then the programming begins. We have continuous media noise, our education , political and religious systems all work against us. We have families, children and most of us have to work. Life gets hectic, and before you realize it, we are emerged so deeply in the material world that it is difficult to think clearly, much less remember who we are and our purpose in life.
Yeshua 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.” (Saying 50 Gospel of Thomas)
Then at some point, realization sets in and we start to believe there is something more than the material world. We go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places of worship to seek the truth. We either get comfortable in that belief system or continue seeking the truth. According to the Law of One, all religions have some truth, but no religion has all the truth. The passing criteria does not require you to be a member of a religion, or you can be a member of any religion as long as you are 51% positive. The key is love, and along with wisdom, something we are to learn during this lifetime. Love the One Infinite Creator with all your heart, love your neighbor, nature and all of God’s creation and be of service to others. Love is a very positive energy and is essentially who we are, the divine spark of God. Jesus said we were Gods in John 10:34. Our thoughts, emotions and actions manifest our reality, but like babies, we do not know how to use the divine power within and have to learned one step at a time. Every thought, every emotion and action is energy with positive or negative consequences, all computed in our 51% positive goal.
Jesus said, As I have loved you, so also you must love one another. John 13:34
The journey begins with a single step. We have been given divine gifts to help us find our way. Discernment is one of those gifts. The more you trust yourself and your judgement over what others tell you, the more you will see the light within.
Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.The eye is the lamp of the body. If your vision is clear, your whole body will be full of light.” Matthew 6:22
Understanding your thoughts, emotions and actions are paramount to your spiritual path manifesting your reality. Affirmations are a powerful tool, a reminder of your beliefs and goals. Meditation is our gateway to find our way home. Starting a daily practice can be one most beneficial endeavors to look within and discover your divinity. All of us are divine sparks of infinite worth trying to find our way home. Good luck on your journey and Love and Light to all.
