What is the Law of One?

Kundalini Rising

The Kundalini life force has been known as eastern concept  for centuries and just beginning to be of interest in the west. Every human being has the ability to awaken our  divine Kundalini, that lays dormant at the base of  our spine until it is aroused. It is depicted as the rising serpent.  Most people never feel it and never know it is there. There may be a brief flash of light, lasting only a few seconds or longer or it could last for minutes, even hours. In a very few people, perhaps one in one thousand, this energy becomes aroused, and activated. This can be a charka glandspositive event or it can be unsettling and disruptive, depending on whether you intended to aroused your kundalini or by accident.

It is an important concept to grasp that human body has and generates energy. The body has sophisticated network of energy pathways, known as meridians. The seven spiritual  Chakras, known as energy centers are located from the base of our spine to the top of our head, following the spine. Edgar Cayce correlated these seven spiritual centers with the many “sevens” in the biblical book of revelations and with the seven endocrine glands in the body.

The base of the spine is the lower or negative pole of the energy field. During meditation and if the kundalini is activated, it flows through the meridians pathways,  drawing universal energy into itself and move upward to be met and react to the positive spiraling energy moving downward called kundalini awakening.  When we are conscience of this pathway, we can identify where our energy is and where it can go, not just physically, but spiritually. During kundalini awakening, your vibratory level changes significantly. Your awareness alters, your vibration increases, and you literally see things from a state of higher consciousness. During intense rising experiences, people can become aware of psychic phenomena outside the limits of their normal awareness. For   example, people who do not normally have psychic abilities may have spiritual visions.  Perhaps that is why the human body is the considered sacred, it contains our divine spark, our essence, as we wander through this confusing and distorted world.  medical imagines

It interesting how the medical symbol to your right,  used by our medical profession is similar to the awaken Kundalini power symbol, coiled like a serpent at the base of the spine, ready to spring up to manifest itself through the chakras.

The bible refers to a story  that Jesus took and applied it to Himself, John 3:14: “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up.”

images (56)Was Jesus referring to the serpent in a the Garden of Eden, the story of our descent of the life force of our soul into physical life,  separating us from God and causing us to leave our companionship with our Creator in the garden. Moses raises this serpent up again and this act  gives him power and eventually the ability to meet God on the Mount Sinai.   Jesus raised the serpent energy to everlasting life,  so does that mean each of us must raise our life force,  to its rightful, original level of vibration and vitality.  Is this how we are born again, to give birth to our spiritual self?

Perhaps now is the time for west and east concepts to come together for the betterment of all humanity.

 

The Bible, Reincarnation, Meditation and the Third Eye

Does the Bible teach us about reincarnation and meditation and the third eye?  Before we explore these important questions, it is important to understand how the bible of today came into existence. In the second and third centuries, Christianity was very diverse and different groups of Christians had different beliefs including the Gnostics; they debated and argued the nature of God and how many gods there were; about Crowd-of-Ancient-Roman-Men-who Jesus was, whether he was human, or divine of the soul, or something else; some believed knowledge of our true selves as the way, the world we live in, the nature and extent of the scriptures, and on and on with every conceivable concept . There were, in fact, so many different groups of early Christians that believed so many differ things, that scholars today prefer to speak not of early Christianity but of Early Christianities, encompassing a wide varieties of different beliefs.

Constantine the Great, also known as Constantine I, became Roman Emperor in 306 CE and ruled until 337 CE. Many of his soldiers converted to Christianity, and in 312 CE he converted to Christianity. According to a biography of Constantine written by Eusebius, images 1Constantine was deeply disturbed on the eve of a significant battle and wonder how he could receive divine assistance for his military cause. Constantine claimed that the night before the battle he had a dream of the cross and was told in his dream that this was the sign that would give him victory. He went into battle and emerged victorious. There are doubts this was genuine because Constantine continued to worship other divinities, the god of the sun.

The Roman empire was vast and was fragmented culturally, politically and religiously. Emperor Constantine saw Christianity as a unify force. In 325 CE, Constantine called for7d535873eb96e4adf03324e3e3a76941--ecumenical-council-orthodox-icons a council of 318 bishops from around the world to resolve the question. In what sense was Jesus God. Arius’s supporters maintained that Jesus was a subordinate divinity the creation of God the father and came into being at some point in time. After much debate of the issues, the council decided against the views of Arius and his followers. All but 20 bishops agreed with the decision and after Constantine twisted their arms, 17 of those 20 signed on the Nicene Creed. That was the first of the seven ecumenical councils of the church, the last being the Second Council of Nicaea in 787. The debating and arguing was much like today in the United States Congress and probably  in most governments around the world.

Before the 4th century, there is little or no evidence of all the biblical books appearing together in a single form.  Instead the biblical writings are found individually in scrolls or codexes  or in loose collections. Before the invention of printing in the 15th century, all productions was handwritten by scribes.

images1The theory of reincarnation is said to have been recorded in the Bible. But the proper interpretations were struck from it during an Ecumenical Council meeting of the Catholic Church in Constantinople sometime around 553 A.D.

There is a reference to reincarnation in Matthew 17:12, “But I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him whatever they wished. In the same way, the Son of Man will suffer at their hands.”

Meditation is mentioned in the old testament numerous times.  One should consider meditation and prayer are one in the same.

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.”

Jesus also said in Luke 8:17 “For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing concealed that will not be known and illuminated”  and again in Luke 12:2 “There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed,or hidden that will not be made known”  and also in Matthew 10:26  “So do not be afraid of them.For nothing is concealed that will not be uncovered, or hidden that will not be made known”.

Was Jesus message about ourselves hidden in  ancient texts are being found around the world?  Perhaps one such finding was in 1945, when thirteen ancient texts called “codices” were discovered in upper Egypt untouched by scribes. They were translated during the 1970’s and can be found in the The Nag Hammadi Library. Scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth were found, and label as Gnostic Gospels thought to be destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define “orthodoxy.”   Edgar Cayce said the Gnostics were the highest form of Christianity.  Is that why Scholars are now JB-Rumi-Quotestudying such text?

Perhaps we should not consider any one religion or concept,  but all world teachings.  Jesus taught the way of Love,  Buddha taught the way of Meditation, many  spiritual traditions the way of the third eye,  and Chakras our energy centers,   and the Law of One teaches unity, all providing a message and guidance from our Creator to find our way home.

We are all taking or final exam in life. I prefer not to put my fate in whether I pass or fail based on bickering and arguing men through the centuries. This is the time for enlightenment for those who are seeking. The world is at our fingertips for those who want to know the truth, simply use the gift of discernment.

Encoded Ancient Hymn-We Forget Our True Nature

Music is the universal language, our common thread.  The vibrations moves our very essence, sometimes bringing tears to our eyes, goosebumps and so many other senses varying from person to person.  We are all different and what move one may not move another but regardless music moves us. Can music define who we are, help us find our way?

It is the age old question; who are we, why are we here and where are we going. We go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places seeking that very answer, adding confusion and distortion. Music is one thing that can bring us together.

In 1984 songs such as  material world on a secret journey  suggest we are on a spiritual journey with amnesia. Most of us have been on the streets of silence.  Song and hymn, a way to communicate a message.

In ancient times,  there was a mystical poem about all of us. The Hymn of the Pearl may be one of the greatest Gnostic scriptures ever composed. It’s one of several hymns embedded in The Acts of Saint Thomas in India. Everything seems to be hidden. The hymn is commonly interpreted as a images (57)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. The letter takes on a symbolic representation of gnosis. The Song of the Pearl is a narrative poem about a prince’s quest for a pearl. Presented in the Acts of Thomas as a hymn uttered by Thomas, The Song of the Pearl is also a gnostic tale of salvation, of sleeping in error and awakening to Light, of quest not only for the pearl but for the benefit of possessing the pearl, a return to the Light.

Most of the gnostic writings were thought to be lost after losing the battle with Orthodox Christianity when their writings were eliminated. In 1945, thirteen ancient texts called “codices” were discovered in upper Egypt untouched by scribes and can be found now in the The Nag Hammadi Library.

download (9)In 1981, there was a narrow band transmission stating, “ 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.”

Known as the Law of One, the contact lasted from January 1981 to March 15, 1984. It 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. It is available for anyone with the will and desire to study the advanced spiritual teachings. 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 sessions providing his reading and understanding. Perhaps this is an antidote for amnesia.

Sacred Geometry-A World Message For All to See

The world we live in today is not what it seems. Our perception has been one of manipulation and control.  We have been in a deep sleep and download (18) crop circles as we wake,  there is a  realization of our worlds of physical and metaphysical are inseparable. We be begin to understand we are beings of infinite worth.  Perhaps it is time to consider theology, extraterrestrials, spirituality and universal laws are one. What are the messages left around the world for all to see?

Sacred Geometry  was traditionally restricted to the priesthood.  The general belief behind sacred download (18)geometry is that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportions are also found in music, light, and cosmology.  Now sacred Geometry is for all to see, but why aren’t we seeing it on mainstream media?

 Crop circles are sacred geometry left in fields of crops all over the world. It is a message to humanity. They appear to be created by what we know as orbs, a spherical light body. This video depicts two orbs creating a crop circle. Sacred geometry involves sacred universal patterns used in the design of everything in the universe and our world. Sacred architecture can be seen in religious and government religionsbuildings all over the world.  This value system is seen as widespread even in ancient times.

The basic laws of the universe may seem simple, but because our senses are limited, we can’t grasp them. There is a pattern in creation.  The patterns  are everywhere, pine cones, sunflowers, pineapples, and cacti, they all have a double spiral structure that will allow the smaller elements, such as seeds, to pack themselves closely and images (94)efficiently. If you look at the center of a sunflower you will see the seeds line up in crisscrossing spirals that radiate from the center. You can count the number of spirals turning in each direction, and these will always be Fibonacci numbers.    A tree outside whose roots search beneath the ground for water, or a flower which sends its sweet smell to the pollinating bees, or even our own bodies and  the power within  that drive us to act, we can see that we all dance to a mysterious tune. A melody of pure energy, Universal Infinite Intelligence, beyond our comprehension, encompassing all.

Just as children must learn to read, write, and speak a  language in order to function in the world,  we are at a stage of  spiritual evolution where we must learn to read, write, and speak the pattern language of creation. As children learn to read one letter at a time, so can we learn to read the “book download (20)of nature” one shape or pattern at a time. And as children learn to connect letters together to form meaning through words, sentences, and entire books, so can we learn to read how nature unites multiple patterns to create all beings, structures, and processes of the world.

Sacred geometry is found throughout the entire universe and can be seen everywhere in the natural world. Even our own bodies are made up of this mathematical equation which connects all living things in the universe.

images (99)It is  a universal language that describes the inner workings of nature and the intrinsic order of the universe. It is the natural sanction that unites all forms of life; from microbes, plants, animals and humans to the motions of the planets and universe.  It shows the quality of relatedness between unique and individual differences and demonstrates how diverse elements can be organized into a whole yet so much beyond our understanding.

images (96)

Perhaps the message Jesus left us  in  Luke could provide insight:

No one lights a lamp and covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he sets it on a lampstand, so those who enter can see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing concealed that will not be known and illuminated. Pay attention, therefore, to how you listen. Whoever has will be given more, but whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.

or his hidden teachings in the Gospel of Thomas”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.”

Albert Einstein: A human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty.

 

 

Meditation, Our Natural State.

Meditation is a natural relaxation state of the mind. To me, it is the most importantda7644252cfd8101559590a4d2ea6d3b meditation mental exercise to practice during our lifetime. Meditation is actually our natural state.

Mindfulness can be practice all the time by simply focusing on the current moment, not yesterday or tomorrow but the present moment, paying attention to what you are doing, being aware of your thoughts.

The proper way to meditate is just start. You will develop a practice over time but start with what works for you. Sitting in a chair or floor with good posture, close your eyes, take 5–10 slow deep breaths, following your breath. Your relaxing your mind so try not to think of Meditation-quotes-Paramahamsa-Yogananda.pnganything. Just focus on a point in the front of eyes. You will find your thoughts drifting to problems just bring the focus back to the point in front of the eyes. The time you meditate is up to you.

What I just described is the first step of Dzogchen, an esoteric tradition of teachings considered to be the highest and most definitive path to enlightenment by Tibetan Buddhism. Buddha found enlightenment with the breath sitting under a tree. So with the will and wisdom, dzogchen becomes an incredibly profound and effective method for achieving enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. The fundamentals of Dzogchen meditation meditation_quotecan be found here, and even may be the most powerful meditation technique.

Make meditation part of your life and you will see the world anew.

Aliens or God and what about Us?

I was asked which is more likely; the existence of aliens or the existence of God?  To me the answer is obvious. It is one of the same.

We have been brainwashed into thinking religious systems have the answers to many images (93)unknown questions. Who are aliens, who are we and why are we here and of course, the God question. Going back to the beginning in Genesis, man was made in his image. Consider the image to be pure unknowable energy, universal love and light. Man in all his wisdom, decided that God, which is just a label for us to comprehend, must be a supreme being, that looks like us. For discussion purposes, let’s make a label transition from God to Infinite Intelligence.

Besides the control of the masses by religion, another problem is language. Based on what we know, it was a barrier created at the Tower of Babel. My dear friend Doctor Graves, PhD in Linguistics, and I have many discussions regarding language. He said we have to understand each person has an emotional connection to words and phrases, and controlthey are different from person to person; languages do not map the same with words and grammatical associations and idioms and cultural connotations. It is easy to have misunderstandings, not only in our own language, but in world languages.

There is no argument the heart magnetic field can be measured several feet from the body. Our emotions create negative or positive energy affecting us and our world. The energy is known by many different names , spirit, soul, qi, chakras, prana, our life force, that I call our essence. It is who we are. This YouTube video should provide a new insight of our essence and our religion system today.

We live in a world where the physical and metaphysical worlds are inseparable. Our Essence never dies and our goal is to connect back to the source, Infinite Intelligence. download (17)heart peace buddhaTake religion out and look to the message. Jesus spoke of love, Buddha meditation, Lao Tzu the way, Krishna, energy centers, all to prepare us to understand our true power. According to the Law of One, we are energetic beings just beginning to understand the power within each of us. This is not about religion or belief systems, it about each of us being in the school of life. We like children in school and have to clear away all the clutter in our belief systems and learn anew. We have free-will to choose. If anyone wants to look for aliens and the definition of God, the Law of One is a good place to start.

Albert Einstein Quotes

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.

Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.

Our Power Within

Over 5000 years ago the ancient Chinese masters of esoteric healing understood everything is composed of energy they called Chi or Qi. They observed there is a oneness and wholeness in all existence connected to one body. Traditional Chinese Medicine is primarily based on the understanding of the transformation of Qi.

Qi is vibrating in constant energetic motion within all things. It is our essence called by many different names in different cultures of the world. The ancient Chinese masteredall-religions-one3 specific techniques to balance the body’s energy in order to live in harmony with the earth. Qi within the body in the form of energetic pools I refer to as Chakras. From Chakras, the body’s essence or life force energy, flows in streams from the body’s vessels, channels and collateral systems.

The Chinese believe Qi has mass, the same as smoke or vapor, and can manifest within the body through three primary levels.

(1) Physically as matter through the body’s cells and tissues in the form of marrow, blood and body fluid.

(2) Energetically as Resonant vibration through heat, sound, light and electromagnetic fields.

(3) Spiritually as Divine light, energetically manifesting through subtle vibrations which extend through infinite space.

The ancient Chinese believed that all life emerged from the Dao’s eternal existence and would someday dessove back into its infinite light. The Tao, the “Way” can be translated both as a spiritual approach  to the Divine, or as the infinitely subtle realm and presence of the Divine underlying all things. According to ancient Chinese esoteric teachings, the energetic vibration and light pertaining to the Tao, the Divine is imprinted in every particle and that whatevers exist of creation is simply an expression and manifestation of the Divine.  The Law of One mentions vibration 293 times  and  light 465  , expressed  in the same concept as the ancient Chinese but with much understanding  and detail how  our  body mind spirit works.

Qi has two main expressions, an outward and inward flow known as yin and yang. This can be cultivated with  Chi gong, yoga, Tai Chi exercises  which may increase your positive energy and your overall well-being.

Once a person wakes up to the divine energetic field they begin to experience the energy fields of nature including plants, animals and humans. As you grow, so will your awareness, your purpose and understanding. You will realize the physical world and metaphysical world are inseparable.

We are energetic beings just beginning to understand the power within each of us. This short video will provide some understanding of the power of Qi, but I would not recommend trying it yourself.

Most Powerful Meditation Technique?

Although there are many meditation techniques,  the one most powerful may be  called Dzogchen. Dzogchen is connected to the attainment of the rainbow body, our true nature at the time of death or even before.

Dzogchen is an esoteric tradition of teachings considered to be the highest and most definitive path to enlightenment by Tibetan Buddhism. The aim is attaining and divine_lightpazmaintaining our primordial state, meaning our existence from the beginning, our light bodies. Early Christianity spoke of a Divine spark within each of us and Jesus  said we are from the light and the light we will return. Dzogchen means “Great Perfection,” and Rigpa “Gnosis” is at the core of their lineal teachings, where they provide a series of meditative practices said to aid us in recognizing our true primordial nature, love, compassion and selflessness.

Father Francis Tiso, author of Rainbow Body and Resurrection, investigated the rainbow body and the meaning and relevance of religion within human society. He gave this presentation at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco providing his evidence that such a thing occurs. Father Tiso also discusses the implications of an IONS-sponsored research project investigating a specific case of the Tibetan Buddhist practices of the Rainbow Body.

images (2)Some believe these stories reflect upon the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is central to the Christian faith. Jesus was loving and compassionate, selfless person. When he died, according to the gospels, his body was no longer there. Jesus said in Matthew 6:22 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 The eye is the lamp of the body. If your vision is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your vision is poor, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

The eye is the lamp of the body, also known as the third eye, the sixth Chakra. This Chakra, if the vision is clear, receives the Intelligent Energy from God. Do these energies pour or stream down into the individual’s body, mind and spirit, awakening the Kundalini?

Dzogchen might seem effortless, but in order to practice properly, emphasis should be onimages (91) seeking the truth with tremendous effort to understand what are known as the outer and inner preliminaries. With the will and wisdom, dzogchen becomes an incredibly profound and effective method for achieving enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. The fundamentals of Dzogchen Meditation can be found here.

Buddha nature, Christ Conscience, Chakra energy centers, Kundalini all connected? A question each person should consider. In my opinion, Meditation is the gateway to Infinite Intelligence, our Creator, and any meditation practice of choice is a benefit to begin your journey.

“Look at God within yourself, how ‘God is Light.’ For his Nature is a glorious, many-splendored Light. He manifests the Light of his Nature to those who love Him in all the worlds…” (John of Dalyatha, Syriac Mystic, 690-780 CE )

The Hidden Teachings of Jesus

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 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.

After Jesus’ crucifixion in 30 AD, Christianity as we know it today,  was born , and 600 download-16.jpgyears later, Islam. The Quran had many references of Jesus, also known as Isa. Muslims believe that Jesus was a prophet who was given a special message to convey to all people.  Muslims accept that Jesus was a servant, teacher, and lover of God’s Word, they do not believe that he was divine or the son of God. The Quran describes the miracles Jesus performed, such as healing the sick and raising the dead, but does not ascribe these miracles to his divinity. Instead, Jesus is a sign to all humankind of God’s endless mercy.  Christianity and Islam combined,  is more than half the world population, and is more than half of all   world religions .  There is no doubt, the man called Jesus, Yeshua or Isa has set the world on fire and has a huge impact on the world belief  systems today.

Jesus’ life was not easy. The people of that time walked everywhere, some living as nomads in small groups, keeping flocks of sheep and goats, and traveling from place to place in order to feed and protect their animals. Others lived more settled lives, growing crops or providing services to people in towns and urban areas.  Communication was word of mouth, very few could read or write.  Jesus traveled with his disciples teaching and healing those who requested it. Some claim  he traveled to India and many other places.  As a child, he was learning that he had a power within and had to learn to 021-lumo-jesus-disciplescontrol it.  In some stories found in the Infancy Gospel of Thomas presents Jesus an amazing divine child: He makes sparrows out of clay and then brings to life. He raises people from the dead and heals his brother James when he is bitten by a snake.

Other stories present young Jesus as something of a holy terror: When a boy uses a tree branch to ruin some pools of water that Jesus has made, Jesus tells him to wither up like a tree and he does. When another boy runs into Jesus’s shoulder, Jesus curses him and the boy dies. At one point, Joseph says, “people who make him angry die”.  Scholars have tried to make sense of this text but always don’t agree on how to understand it.  More information on theimages (55) Infancy Gospel of Thomas can be found here and the Origins of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas Tales here.

Jesus studied and understood the Jewish Bible as well as the Rabbi’s and may have been one himself. Some of his saying and teaching were very esoteric. One time he  was confronted by a group of Jews who wanted to stone him.  They told Jesus  “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claiming to be God.”   Jesus answered them,  “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”  .   Jesus was referring to  Psalm 82.6  I said, ‘You are “gods”;  you are all sons of the Most High.’  That was one of many esoteric sayings Jesus presents in the new testament. Another one is in Matthew 6:22, when Jesus said  “The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will 12-apostles-58a2412d3df78c4758c05375be full of light.  Did he mean the third  eye, the Sixth Chakra?

He spoke in the language of his time, simple-minded people trying to spread the most important word the world has ever known, the logos.   He spoke in metaphors and parables with deep hidden meanings with an esoteric message to humanity.

After his crucifixion, in the 2nd and 3rd centuries,  Christianity had many different concepts and belief systems. Some Christians maintained there were 2 Gods, or 12 or thirty or more. Some Christians maintained  Jesus was not really a human being, or  was he divine. Others thought he was two different beings, one human, one divine. Others believed the world was not created by the true God but by a malicious deity as a images (86)place for punishment for the human souls which have become entrapped here in human bodies.  Some Christians believed that Jesus death and resurrection had no bearing on salvation and some believed that Jesus had never actually died.

One of those belief systems was Gnosticism. Gnosticism is a term from the Greek word   gnosis meaning “knowledge”. Christians of the 2nd and 3rd centuries did not read the New Testament because the New Testament did not yet exist.  Gnostics were the early movement of Christianity and lost the early Christian struggle to define orthodoxy.The Gnostics Christians  had different views from the early Christianity. Orthodox images (84)Christianity created the idea of heresy to condemn the Gnostics quest for higher knowledge because the different belief system.  Heresy comes from the Greek word Hairesis, which meant school of thought and did not have negative connotations. Early Christians wanted  a single harmonious and considered themselves as a single body of Christ and did not want any division.  Overtime, people who followed the Gnostics were considered godless and imperious members of a school of thought and  therefore heretics. Some in the Christian religion still believe that today.  The destruction of their sacred texts was inevitable, so some hid them in caves and various other places so they images (63) could not be found.

In 313 AD, Emperor Constantine converted and established Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. The motivations of the Emperor were complex. Christianity had grown too powerful to suppress, and even Roman soldiers secretly converting to Christianity.  After Emperor Constantine established Christianity as the official roman religion, and as it is today.  All other forms vatican-pope-easter-83cd5409fa51d764of Christian beliefs were eliminated, by destroying and burning texts, letters and manuscripts.   Many early followers of Christ were condemned by other Christians as heretics.  Orthodox Christianity prevailed when in 397 C.E., the Council of Carthage established the orthodox New Testament canon with the 27 books. Through the years, the New Testament Canon had scribes copy by hand, word  for word, taking or adding  a word or even a letter has changed the meaning today.  Nearly 2000 years later our  understanding of Jesus teachings is from the New Testament Canon but with nearly  2000 years of editing.  There are over  40 versions of the New Testament today.  The church leaders provide their teachings to an uncertain concept, until now!

Now we have an astonishing variety of early Christian writings survive outside the canon of the New Testament.  In many case, these writings expand upon the New Testament writings  with a new understanding  of Jesus’ message.   We know the church version,  but now we can know another version and you can seek the truth for yourself.

For the first time  we have access to an Apocryphal Jesus, hidden or secret teachings.  In images (64)1945, original gnostic documents were found and is believed to be one of the most important archaeological finds in the 20th century. Thirteen ancient texts of Gnostic works called “codices” found in caves in Upper Egypt untouched by scribes, can be found in the Nag Hammadi Library .   Thirteen ancient texts of Gnostic works called “codices” found in caves in Upper Egypt untouched by scribes.  Among the manuscripts was the  discovery of a complete copy of  114 secret sayings of Jesus , known as Gospel of Thomas, thought to be constructed in the 1st or 2nd century A.D.  Some of the sayings in the Gospel of Thomas can be found in the New Testament.  The text has very Eastern download (14)flavor, being almost Buddhism and Tao Te  Ching in some of the sayings.

The discovery in 1945 provides a new and refreshing school of thought about spirituality and Jesus message. The discovery also came at a time when it could be shared with the world and not suppressed as it was for the last two centuries.download (13)

The untouched scriptures,   communicated a different way of life and salvation,  Jesus is a teacher of wisdom and understanding, speaking in metaphors and parables of love and enlightenment. Much different from the sin and repentance as the Church teaches.  Since the discovery and publications, the Gospel of Thomas has been the most celebrated of the 13 ancient texts discovered in 1945.   Jesus confronts his disciples and leaders of the gospel with powerful sayings for all to contemplate the meaning. It starts:

“These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down”.

(1) And he said,  he who shall find the interpretation of these words shall not taste of death.

In the Gospel of Thomas, salvation comes to those that learn from Jesus’s sayings the truth about themselves.  “When you know come to know yourselves,” Jesus says,  “then you will be known, and you will understand that you will understand that you are images (4)children of the living father.”  If people do not come to know themselves, then they remain mired by spiritual poverty.

Your true self,  Thomas teaches, does not belong to this world of change and materiality. Instead,  it originated in a realm of permanence and intellect. and it will return to the realm-if you know your true self.  Our problem is not sin, but ignorance: We mistakenly think our material bodies are our true selves.

Join me in an esoteric  journey to discover the meaning of 114 secret saying of Jesus.  Every month we will examine some of the sayings until all 114 saying have been analyzed and interpreted. Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day.

 

 

Our Essence/Spirit/Soul

Our essence, the spirit and soul, is pure energy, a source from Infinite Intelligence that encompasses the universe that forever has been a mystery for the human race.  Our higher selfessence is much like a baby, trying to learn to see, sit up, crawl,  walk, and talk while developing the 6th sense.  It is drawn to the beauty of nature, the thriving life of seen and unseen worlds. It looks at others and sees itself with feelings of compassion, love and discernment.  It feels sorrow as it sees the world being ravaged, polluted and destroyed; the pain and suffering of the people, plants, animals and mother earth. It understands we are one community with different cultures, ideas, and beliefs, all different, but all spiritually connected.

But our essence is just an infant, beginning to realize the infinite possibilities. Telepathy, telekinesis, clairvoyance, discernment, remote viewing and psychic abilities are just some beginning to be understood and practiced.  Mankind  even has Global Consciousness project uses binary codes to measure levels of global conscious.   Even ourB135RbXCcAIZp5p thoughts create reality by negative or positive emotions causing action and reaction. Over 7 billion people have unknowingly created our world of today simply by thought.

Our essence  has been elusive of our understanding since the beginning of time. Humanity has been fascinated the concept of spirit/soul through religion and belief systems. Our essence , also known as spirit, soul, rul, chi, prana, chakras, divine spark or consciousness  is in every culture.  Each culture has a belief system, established rituals, rules, explanations and concepts based on their understanding how our essence guides us through this life into the next. We go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, mosques and other places of worship to understand our spirit. Others do not attend organized religion but practice spirituality daily.

Our essence is communicating with us, all we have to do is pay attention.  Daily meditation, contemplation, prayer and thanksgiving brings our essence  closer to the source, our Creator.

Call it mystical and elusive; it has been debated, discussed, and revered, by every Religion and belief system in the world. Science cannot explain or prove the energy exist, encourages those to be non-believers. Description of near death experience excites those who believe. It is free-will, all part of this grand game, we call life.
