Who Is The Universe We Live In

Who Is The Universe We Live In
 
More and more people are realizing as we enter a higher level of consciousness and a better understanding of Ancient and Newly rediscovered Wisdom, that there is more to reality than the physical, material, world ... and they are asking "what is the Universe" in reality? This question should more appropriately stated as ... WHO is the Universe?

In normal circumstances most people perceive, understand and interact with their surroundings, what we consider as the material world, exclusively in terms of the five physical senses; sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. 

These senses are usually, and quite understandably accepted beyond question as the only source of sensory feedback for everyday existence in what is commonly believed to be “reality." 

This is true to such an extent in fact, that unless something tangibly conforms to one or more of the five physical senses, it is usually deemed not to exist at all ... or might simply be considered to be an “illusion," or perhaps simply a “figment of the imagination." 

To most people the only notable exception to any extra-sensory existence is the perception of the “God/Source, or Gods of the various world religions and belief systems, generally accepted by most people without question as existing beyond the perception of the five physical senses. Accordingly, belief in such a God or Gods has become a complete act of faith, maintained only by the orthodox religions of the world. And usually it is through blind faith, not any particular knowingness.

In the context of asking the big question "what is the Universe" we also need to look at this subject in the context of religions. They go hand-in-hand. 

Religions endeavour to teach their congregations how to live their lives and worship their particular God or Gods in accordance with a “belief system”, often based upon the teachings of their various “books” or bibles (bible comes to us from the Greek word for book: "biblios").

At the same time, a wholly materialistic outlook of the world often causes people to think and live from an exclusively materialistic perspective, in turn resulting in a sense of “separateness” from the Universe ... and indeed from each other. Spirit, on the other hand ... through universal unconsciousness binds us all as One, complete unified organism.

These factors in turn cause many people to place their primary emphasis on temporal, material objects ... as if they are all that is the meaningful in life. As a consequence the mission of the many is to gather as many such material and monetary possessions as possible during the course of what is generally perceived to be an only “life”, very often in order to increase perceived levels of comfort and wealth, and, urged on by the influence of the ego to “keep up appearances” among peers, friends, strangers, neighbours, co-workers, relatives and others.

This situation has contributed in no small degree to the sad state of the world, as we witness it today, with a gross imbalance existing between those who have vastly more than they could ever genuinely need for daily purposes, and those unfortunate people who have little or nothing, often having to exist each and every day in abject (bad situation) misery and suffering as if it were their last.

With this sad state of affairs today, we often see a world where dishonesty, avarice (greed), hate and sometimes violence exists side by side with fear, poverty and suffering. For a very long time the entire world has been in the grip of a major imbalance, an imbalance that has not only been escalating over the decades, but indeed now threatens the entire immediate future of humanity and ... consequently the entire planet. 

Mankind is directly responsible for this state of affairs, bought about by the gross misuse of the very freewill granted by our Creator/Source. Accordingly only mankind can now reverse this situation and bring about a state of harmony, peace, happiness and balance for everyone, the “kingdom of heaven on Earth”.

Although the true nature of the Universe has been known and taught throughout the ages ... many ages/eons ... by many and varied sources throughout the world, all of which are highly consistent and in broad agreement, it is also now being substantiated by the work of modern quantum physics, and increasingly by other branches of the sciences as well. 

All areas of the sciences will surely soon have to accept the fact that true Universal reality is not, and never can be based entirely in the familiar three-dimensional world of physical matter as has been assumed since the days of Isaac Newton (Newtonian Physics), but is rather an infinite, multi-dimensional reality, a Universe of living Consciousness of which everyone and everything without exception is an integral and equal aspect. The new world of Quantum Physics.

The true nature of the Universe will certainly challenge the perceptions of most people, if for no other reason that throughout the ages there has been a prevalent misperception of a “God” who is completely separate from everyone and everything else in existence, and who “rules” over “his” three dimensional world of matter from high places.

Mankind has always perceived the three dimensional Universe, and in particular the physical world of matter as “reality”. It will surely be equally evident to most people however that beyond the perceptions of the five physical senses there must surely be a much more substantial reality. 

Throughout time mankind has contemplated and attempted to define the nature of this substantial reality. Often substantial reality has been considered to be the three dimensional planet on which we live. In other cases substantial reality has been identified by, and attributed to the name of a deity or deities. But however mankind considers its own particular concept of substantial reality of one thing most everyone agrees; such a substantial reality certainly exists beyond the limitations of a world perceived only by the five physical senses.

Over the course of many thousands of years, from the dawn of intelligent man, the reality of what is the Universe has been taught throughout the world by a variety of Beings whose mission it is to teach these matters mankind. These "matters" are actual forvkobrwigirkr

These Beings range from highly advanced Spiritual intelligences of the inner spheres of life, to great Masters, often ascended human beings (Avatars) who have from time to time have incarnated on Earth in order to teach mankind the Universal Thruths and direction required for every human being to fulfil their ultimate destiny as immortal Spiritual beings ... traveling the sacred path back to our prime Creator, to God.

These ageless teachings, knowledge and wisdoms have been taught to many students and teachers over the ages, whose sacred task it has been in turn to bring these eternal truths and realities to the human race, that true purpose and destiny might be fulfilled. Many such students and teachers have remained in relative obscurity, steadily teaching those who would understand and in turn influence others, in such places and in such ways as to avoid the persecution.

Some of the greatest of these teachers did become very well-known and have performed an invaluable service to humanity, alas however over the millennia these teachings have often been drastically distorted and misunderstood, and in some cases even became the basis for orthodox, dogmatic religions. 

Fortunately however the Truth is both one and eternal, and over the course of thousands of years has survived in cultures throughout the world where it still lives on today, ready to finally reach a much wider section of the human race, ultimately resulting in a global expansion of Consciousness where true purpose and destiny will be an integral aspect of the lives of everyone.

Truth About Medicine And Healing

Truth About Medicine And Healing

Medicine is something that requires thought and recognition. At Least, that is how it used to be a very long time ago.

First of all I must stress, beyond any doubt, that if you are taking medicines for any serious or life-threatening condition then it is important to keep on doing so for now. The same applies to any medicine prescribed for a serious condition.

With that disclaimer out of the way, what matters is not the medicine, but rather how you think of the medicine. So, let us take a look at the real effects.

As we know, all dis-ease that manifests in the outer, physical body has arisen from within; there are no exceptions to this. This is universal immutable Law. Even if you have caught a cold from your child, it first begins within you - inside you, then manifest without you - outside you. Inside, to outside. This is the chain of events ... Always. 

There are various causes, and stress is a major cause of "dis-ease"; in other words a body that is not at at-ease ... is "dis-eased." If you place stress on your inner, non-physical bodies with your thoughts and emotions, it will manifest in your physical body in some way.

When you eat something poisoned, expired, rotten, or toxic ... your body begins the process of extracting the toxins. You run the the bathroom and begin to vomit. What is polluting the within, must come to the without. The same goes for mental, emotional, and spiritual illness. The Spirit ejects it as illusion and far from Truth, so it manifests as disease or illness. 

Worry and extreme concern is a major source of "dis-ease". If you worry about your health, you will remain un-healthy and your health will worsen. This is universal Law. If you believe you can "catch a dis-ease" such as a cold, you will catch it. Every single time. 

For example; I know that by keeping my hands clean multiple times per day, I that I have not "caught" a cold or flu; no matter where I go or who I am exposed to; and therefore I rarely do. Recently, I got my first common cold in occur six years. I was at Dunkin' Donuts and next to me was an entire family of parents and kids hacking, and sneezing away. Sure enough, I convinced myself that I would "catch" it ... and so I did. 

So what does this mean in terms of medicine? To be taking any medicine is sending out the vibration; "I have a dis-ease and therefore I am taking this medicine for it". Or, I AM sick. 

The medicine then reinforces the dis-ease. When you take a medicine you are thinking about the dis-ease you are hoping to cure, thus attracting more of the same. What we think about is what will manifest. We are co-creators in this world. Our invisible thoughts, become visible things. This is immutable universal Law. 

It can however and often does work in the opposite way; if you believe that taking the medicine will cure you, it will; this is how the "placebo effect" works. But in this case it is not the chemicals contained in the medicine that has brought about the "cure", it is the knowing that it will cure you, that has affected the cure. Therefore, you and your body have cured yourself. We cannot have dis-ease without first having ease. For example, the immutale Law of Cause And Effect (karma/doing) ... says we cannot have an "effect" without a "cause." This alone ... tells us the cure for everything is in the cause. but the profits are in the treatments/symptoms. 

There is a term given to an aspect of this "eucharist" (or communion). A eucharistic act is the act of eating or drinking something while associating it with a thought. It is based up on the Greek word for being thankful (eucharisto). The substance being eaten or drunk is of no importance, but the action combined with a corresponding thought, serves to re-enforce the thought and give it more power.

The eucharistic effect of the medicine, combined with unhealthy thoughts, reinforces and perpetuates the disease. So it is important to keep medicine in perspective. It is never a good idea to pump chemicals into your body if it can be avoided.

It can be avoided in two ways; by not becoming ill in the first place by thinking only healthy thoughts, and thoughts conducive to remaining healthy. If you do contract a dis-ease, know and think beyond all doubt ... that you are in perfect health, feeling the emotions, and gratitude associated with it.

For example; if you get a headache, or sneeze, or feel uncomfortable in any other way, do not think "I must be coming down with something" or similar negative and dark energy thoughts ... while reaching for your favourite cold remedy. Instead, think about how well you feel, and do anything you can to keep your emotions, and therefore your vibrations high. For example sing or play your favourite song, burn your favourite fragrant incense, inhale your Favourite oils while doing some light breathing excercises, and do something that makes you joyful and tranquil ... at peace. 

Disease cannot exist in a body that is in a high emotional state of vibration and higher energy. Again though, and I cannot stress this enough ... if you are taking medicine for a serious condition you should continue to do so until you speak with your Supervising Physician. 

However, know the medicine for what it is, and know, beyond all doubt that you are in perfect health, and that you have the power to remain in perfect health ... without the need to consume man-made chemical compounds. Soon your doctor will be amazed that you are no longer "ill" and in fact in perfect health; he will ascribe it to the medicine or even a "miracle", but you will know the truth. And perhaps at this time, you may be able to detoxify your body from the chemical compounds.

The Truth is this ... there is not one single ailment, illness or disease in existence ... that cannot be healed using the power of the Mind; not one. Everything originates in mind, and therefore the disease, and the cure are in the same place of origin. 

From now on know only perfect health, and if you do think you are "coming down with something", immediately reject those thoughts, and affirm to yourself your perfect health, and know it is impossible to become "ill" and that will be your reality as it is for millions of others worldwide. 

Just a thought ...

Universal Life Energy

Universal Life Energy
 
It is fitting that we take a closer look at a subject rightly held as crucial by a man who is known as "Baron Eugene Fersen." The very "force" or "power" that flows through each and everyone one of us - and all of creation - thereby maintaining all in existence this thing called "Universal Life Energy."

Here is what Baron Fersen says at the beginning of Lesson Two from his book "Science of Being in Twenty Seven Lessons" that further expands upon this most important subject:

In Lesson One of his book was explained the existence and the qualities of that Supreme Power, the First Manifestation, First Cause, known to us as the Great Principle, the Causeless Cause Itself, which is called Universal Life Energy/Source ... or what most would say "God." Now, more details. 

As previously stated, Universal Life Energy is everywhere. Its supply is inexhaustible. Outside of you it is in a condition as Dynamic Life Energy. Within you, inside of your Life Centre, it is in a static or condensed condition.

"Your job is to make the connection between these two aspects of the same Power through certain Exercises. You are to open your body to the inflow of the Universal Life Energy outside of it. The life force within, from its centre in your body, then acts as a magnet and attracts the Force from without. Your Life Centre within, stimulated by the current of Universal Life Energy from without, takes in that Force, transforms it into the life current of the body and sends this changed condition to the Solar Plexus (the nerve centre within your chest), its reservoir or storehouse. From there, it is conveyed by the nerves throughout the whole system".
~The Baron Eugene Fersen

Profound words and deep Truth indeed.

Before we take  a look at these words in more depth, let us take a look at where humanity is today, and why.

It is widely recognized throughout all of the wise cultures of the World - both current and "past" ... relative to the Earth concept of "time", that Humanity has ... from its beginnings, probably five million years ago or so, been continuously subjected to the effects of immutable Universal Cycles of all magnitudes. 

We experience "cycles" that are too small to even perceive, cycles that are evident in our lives and awareness, and great cycles the end of which we are experiencing Now. Of course there are even greater cycles exerting their influence over the Universe at all levels that most may never become aware of. Everything is cyclical. 

It is also stated in Baron Fersen's book, that we are now entering the Sixth Cycle of the Human Being. 

Other great cycles have seen the evolution of the pre-cursors of "modern Human" from what humans regard as "primitive" - although there is no such thing as "primitive" in reality - this is a human concept - through to the current Homo Sapien after evolving through several other "versions" of Humans including more recently Neanderthal man and Cro Magnon man - our immediate ancestors. We've been around for quite some time. Far longer than you may have imagined, or been told. 

Humanity is now evolving once again to the next succession of evolution - Homo Spiritus (spirit), also known as Homo Luminous (light). The Wisdom of the classic Hindu culture measured Ages in what they call the "Yugas".

Just for a fast background, the first of these Ages is the Satya Yuga - the Golden Age. In the Golden Age humans were a race living in complete harmony with our Source, and therefore Universal Life Energy, and living was truly glorious in every respect. A Garden of Eden of sorts ... Paradise if you will. 

However - as humanity progressed through the next Ages - the Treta Yuga - the Silver Age, the Dvapara Yuga - the Bronze Age, and finally the Kali Yuga where humanity is today in our time - the Iron Age - humanity has completed its fall into an Ego driven existence, based upon gross and ego-centric materialism, and with only the dimmest connections with Universal Life Energy.   

Note: The use of metals (Alchemy) in representing these Ages is symbolic, and are not related to the iron age, bronze age etc. of historians.

In short - the human race has finally reached the bottom of the pit. And we might soon be reaching up, to touch bottom. The transition to the next age will see this cycle start over again, as those who are ready, will transition back to a Golden Age once again. 

So what does all of this have to do with "Universal Life Energy" and Lesson Two in "Science of Being in Twenty Seven Lessons" you may ask?

Well kind of everything, actually.

The reason this is taught in Lesson Two is quite simple actually - it is a crucial prerequisite to further progress. Each and every person who wishes to fully participate in this transition must start by consciously re-establishing that vital connection with Source. 

Everyone of course has a connection with Source already, but in most people, it is Subconscious and therefore without awareness. Our aware conscious mind has no access to it. The reason most must approach The Law of Attraction through the Subconscious Mind, instead of directly through the Conscious Mind, is because consciously realized Source, Universal Life Energy is there ... within.

The Baron goes further by not only teaching how to realize Universal Life Energy within, but also from outside of the physical body - and here is what he says to us:

"As Universal Life Energy is limitless, and all powerful, the more it flows into the body the stronger the individual becomes. The object of these Exercises described hereafter is to establish a permanent contact and thus secure a continual flow of Universal Life Energy into the Life Centre of your body, from where it will be distributed by a way of the Solar Plexus in a constant and increasing radiation of life throughout the whole body".

This is crucially important to achieving and maintaining a healthy, youthful, radiant body. Please read that last graph again, Do your best to understand what it is that he is telling us. This is of the utmost importance. 

"Science of Being in Twenty Seven Lessons" goes on to commence the first in a series of absolutely fundamental, powerful and valuable exercises to achieve this process. 

Those who are fully adept at this process, as well as realizing Universal Life Energy within would even, after attaining a sufficient level of ability, even have no physical need for "food".

What we know as "food" is really a very crude way of providing the physical body with Energy - the digestive process converting a very small proportion of the organic material consumed into usable Energy, the remainder being wasted by the individual.

The destiny of corporeal humans with an organic body is to become fully self-sustaining through Universal Life Energy - the purest and most direct form of Energy there Is. Beyond the physical Universe, all life is sustained exclusively in this way.

We are already seeing the beginnings of this realization, as increasingly more people switch from the gross - in density terms - toxic and difficult to assimilate animal and dairy based products to natural, harvestable, easily assimilated whole foods.

This trend is a crucial aspect of the transition that those ready are experiencing, and will increasingly experience. As we evolve, we not only realize the oneness of all Life and therefore the sanctity of All Life regardless of the form that Life manifests, but also the Truth of Energy in the context of the human body.

How can we be sure that Universal Life Energy can provide these powers and requirements? Here is more of what Eugene Fersen observes in his Wisdom:

"Investigations of the astonishing feats of strength and endurance among animals, birds and especially insects have brought to light some remarkable discoveries as to the source of their great energy. We have all seen ants carrying cargo many times their size and weight. Birds of prey have hauled away their victims as well, many times their size. 

Nature itself, as a loving Mother (alma mater - nurturing mother), has provided her children with the necessary means to contact Universal Life Energy (considered the Father) constantly, and transmute it through their bodies into the startling activities which baffled scientists for many years. 

Animals, for instance, use the hair of their bodies as numberless wireless poles to contact this Power of the Universe. The birds use their feathers for that purpose, reptiles and fish their scales, insects their feelers and the little down growing on their bodies, plants the underside of their leaves, etc.

If it were not for that continual contact with Universal Life Energy ants could not carry burdens so many times heavier than themselves with such ease and continuity of effort. Without that power continually flowing into their bodies and sustaining them throughout their many days of migration, birds could not cross the ocean, thousands of miles in one stretch, without food, without resting, without sleeping. Just imagine this type of journey for a moment. 

Even the many layers of fat which migratory birds acquire through intensive feeding before they start on their long journey would not be sufficient to supply one small part of the energy which they spend on their way. If it were not for the continual inflow of Universal Life Energy into their bodies, through their feathers, during the very process of flying, they could never reach their destination."

I hope that everyone will understand what is being said here. In terms of the wonders of nature as a whole, not the least of which are the animals, that humans in their Ego and selfishness view as "inferior," human beings are in all actuality nothing less than feeble, puny, weak creatures, which, without the benefit of "technology" and other instruments of survival would be at the mercy of creatures much smaller than themselves. In fact, even now how many times have people threatened to burn down their house to kill a spider?

An ant has many orders of magnitude much more powerful than any human. Observe a line of ants carrying sections of leaves and other materials many times their own size and weight. And as their group grows, they literally develop into a brain of sorts. Working together in perfect organized harmony. 

See a bird dive for food, such a fish that can be half its own weight or more and fly off with it in its beak. Watch how a cat can jump many times its own height with ease, and land with perfection on his paws every single time.

Even in Biblical scripture, many have heard of the story of Samson and Delilah. Samson's real name was "Shimshon", which in Hebrew means "of the Sun". As this story goes, Delilah was bribed by the Philistines to find the secret of Samson's great strength.

Eventually, Samson revealed to Delilah that the secret of his strength was his hair, and that if she removed his hair he would lose his great strength. This she did, and he did indeed lose his strength until later it grew back again.

The deeper esoteric (inner) meaning of this story is to teach that the hair on the human body, as with animals, serves as conduits of Universal Life Energy to enter the body and provide strength.

It is therefore due, at least in part, according to The Baron Eugene Fersen, to the reason that animals are covered in hair where humans are not - that the relative differences in strength can be attributed. Watch the birds flying formation ... a quick turn in one direction and then the other with immediate skill and choreography. 

As an aside - this is also how The Crystal Necklace works as a conduit of Energy into the body.

Conversely - through Universal Life Energy all humans have the latent potential for the same abilities as the other creatures of nature.

Only two fundamental reasons currently prevent this:

1. A lack of conscious contact with, and use of, Universal Life Energy as provided continuously. 

2. A total reliance on physical effort and technology and the ability to obtain material desires with money.

In concluding, I do hope that this article has provided some insight into the crucial necessity to fully and consciously realize Universal Life Energy, and the powers, abilities and benefits It brings to all of creation.

What Happens When We Leave This Body

What Happens When We Leave This Body

I do not think there is a person alive today that has not wondered what happens when our physical body is finished here. Well, based on my studies and research, perhaps this can help.  Remember I said “my” studies and research because this is my belief. Accept it if you want, reject it if you want, that’s entirely up to you ... but I suggest you not wait until afterwards to find some clues. 

How We Got Here

First we need to understand how we got here. Your consciousness, your soul, your energy ... made a decision to incarnate into a human body so that you could have experiences that you can’t get in the ether (heavens, spirit). You agreed and decided to take physical form to work on karmic issues, personal growth, or to help the planet evolve, to move forward with positive growth. You actually chose your parents, planned some major life events, worked things out with some other souls who would also be around when you were, and got busy gettin’ born out of the world (yes OUT, like a leaf from a branch). Then the veil was drawn over your memory so you could act out your life without knowing why you were there. Fascinating no?

Your Life in a Nutshell

Now you’re living, having experiences, learning lessons, making a difference, running into people you’re supposed to, etc. You’re living this life. Your higher-self is left to be the caretaker of your life plan and to nudge you along the way so that you have the experiences you arranged to have during your incarnation. If you can get in touch with your higher-self, and get access to that plan, then so much the better. Otherwise you live your life the way most people do, bopping around from one event to the next, from one relationship to the next, from one job to another, with no concept of why you're here.

Deciding to Die

You decide when your soul is going to go back to the Source. Yes, you read that right. You decide. It’s not random. You don’t just get hit by a bus or get cancer or slip in the shower. On a soul level, you make the decision as to when you’re going to return home. You generally do this after you’ve fulfilled the course outline for your life, the one that your higher-self has been hanging on to and helping you through. 

If you’re lucky, you’ve fulfilled all the tasks on your “to do” list. If life overwhelms you, then perhaps you’ve decided to end it all prematurely. But most people go home when the time is right. You don’t have to decide how you die, just that you are going to, and the universe takes care of the rest. So, you decide the when and the universe decides the how. Kinda not fair, but too bad. It also makes it easier to accept. When someone you know dies, take comfort in knowing that it was a choice. The sadness you feel is for yourself, and how you will handle the loss of such a wonderful friend or family member in YOUR remaining future. Just know that they died, because people die. It will make things much easier for you than always wondering ... why, why, why?

Making the Transition

People fear death because they don’t know what’s going to happen or what it’s going to feel like. It might hurt, it might not.  But the point is that death really lasts for just a moment. Try to enjoy the process. When death takes place you will leave your body behind forever. It’s just a shell after that. Whether you are buried, cremated, or stuffed and hung over a mantle won’t really make any difference to you. After all, when after you shell a peanut, do you bury, cremate or stuff the shell? Of course not, you just throw it away. It’s useless. Just say goodbye to your body that has served as your transportation, and look for a light, an angel, your deceased mother, or a kindly old man  ... someone will surely come to guide you to the “other side.” Enjoy the process. If you feel like you need to stick around a little to see what happens to your body, go ahead, but don’t get too attached. Like the movie Poltergeist suggested ... "go to the light."

Going Home Again

Once you go into the light, you will probably experience a life review. You get to watch your life unfold before you, and you get to see how it all turned out. Just like reading a Broadway play revue in Variety, you'll go through yours. If you harmed people in your life, you will probably feel the pain you caused them. So be nice while you’re still here ... always. This is done so you can properly understand how important it is to live consciously and with pure intent. Remain pure at heart. But I’m not here to preach, you already know that. Now, after your life review ... the real fun begins. 

Playing Around the Ether

The "Ether" is defined as "a medium that in the wave theory of light permeates all space and transmits transverse waves" also based in the ancient Greek word meaning "bright air, upper regions of space, sky, firmament ... also the dwelling of Spirit/Air/Wind. 

So, after your life review you get to decide where you go and what you do next. Some people choose to incarnate again pretty quickly. More to learn, more to do. More experiences to be had. Others take time for reflection on what they want to do next.  Some decide to tour the ether, the galaxy, or other dimensions. Some decide to spend time catching up on family news with their deceased relatives. And some decide to hang around the living for a bit, a sort of haunting if you will, sending them dreams, and enjoying watching their grandchildren play. 

If you’re one of the more highly evolved beings that some ancient spirituality based religions speak of, you get to meet with higher beings and archangels in the ether to discuss plans and future goals. It is still your job to incarnate ... present as an avatar of sorts ... helping to fix stuff and re-align things. What you need to know here is that once you get to the ether, you have things to do, plans to make, and travelling to accomplish. It’s fun. Look forward to it. But know that there is serious business going on up there/in there. 

What About Love

We can't wrap this up without the mention of the joy, and the love, and the total sense of peace you get when you arrive home. All is well in the ether. Your problems are left behind. You’ll feel wonderful. It’s all good when you leave here and journey back home to Source. They say you get to be 30 again. If you died before you were 30, you still get to be 30. Probably where "Logan's Run" got it's movie concept. 

Ok So Then What?

So after you’ve had fun in the afterlife regions for a while, then what do you do? Incarnate again to continue your spiritual growth, or stick around the ether as a guide for others, or … who knows? But you’ll see when you get there. Just don't be in too much of a hurry:) 

“But when do I get to meet God/Source?”

After all that, you’re probably wondering when you get to meet the boss. Source light, the Almighty ... the source of all life?  You won't have to look too hard. 

In fact ... and you need to sit down for this unless you have read a bunch of my articles on the past ... 

Just look in the mirror, right now. Go ahead, I’ll wait. There, you saw him/her/it. It’s really that simple my friends. You’re a projection of one aspect of God. If you believe in subjective reality then you’re just God focusing on you right now, and that’s why it seems like you’re you and he’s him and she’s well ... never-mind. The point is ... this God/Source, is already within you, and everything. God is you. You are God. I AM that I AM. YOU ARE that You ARE. Collectively, the entirety of this universe is the total Source Energy of what we would call God. Learn that now and you can save yourself years of trouble and confusion. We are each an individualized essence of the whole ... the Holy. This is the very secret dating back to early pagan Wisdom that the church will not tell you. Because, then you wouldn't need them anymore.  

Bottom Line

Dying is simply going home, returning from whence you came. You are Eternal. It’s the thing you yearn for deep in your soul. It’s the thing you know deep down inside but aren’t willing or able to remember. It's that hole you can't quite fill with "stuff" no matter how hard you try. But until it’s time for you to go, remember to live your life on purpose, be nice to the other fragments or pieces of God walking around on our planet, and enjoy your time here. Imagine "God" being a ... glass ... cup. Now throw it on a tile floor. What does it become? Countless pieces of ... glass. All came from one Source, and all things that are made, are made of the only stuff that was around when Source expanded. God stuff. Everything, is God stuff.

Just a thought ...

Inside The World of Religion

Inside The World of Religion

If you are a high-IQ recent graduate from a top college or university, here is where you probably stand when it comes to religion: It’s not for you. You don’t mind if other people are devout, but you don’t get it. Smart people who have investigated and researched the real history just don’t believe that stuff anymore. At least, not literally and historically.

Perhaps you are explicitly an atheist. Even if you are an agnostic, you don’t spend much time worrying about God, because there’s no point. If a God exists, it cannot be the kind of God who has anything to do with intervening in your day to day world, let alone with the lives of the individual human beings on it. God, or what would be best described as "Source Energy," is not going to swoop down from the sky and save Lois Lane from inevitable doom. 

I can be sure that’s what many may think ... because your generation of high-IQ college-attending young people, like mine 50 years ago, has been as thoroughly socialized to be secular as our counterparts in preceding generations were socialized to be devout. 

Some of you grew up with parents who were not religious, and you’ve never given religion a thought. Others of you went to Sunday school as a child (I’m going to use the Christian context in this discussion) and went to church with your parents in adolescence, but more than likely left religion behind as you were socialized by college ... or earlier. 

By socialized, I don’t mean that you studied theology under professors who convinced you that Thomas Aquinas was wrong. You didn’t study theology at all. None of the professors you admired were religious. When the topic of religion came up, they treated it dismissively or as a subject of humor. You went along with the zeitgeist. It was the flow ... uncool. 

Taking religion seriously means homework. It means research. It means seeking to find out what the underlying message is beneath the surface of the stories and fables. Ancient "Holy Writ" is parable, allegory ... metaphorically and myth in nature. 

If you’re waiting for a road-to-Damascus experience (as Paul supposedly had), you’re kidding yourself. Taking one of the great religions seriously, getting inside its rich body of thought, doesn’t happen by sitting on beaches, watching sunsets, and waiting for enlightenment. It can easily require as much intellectual effort as a law degree. 

Even dabbling at the edges has demonstrated the Truth of that statement to me for Judaism, Buddhism, and Taoism. I assume it’s true of Islam and Hinduism as well. In the case of Christianity, with which I’m most familiar, the church has produced profound religious thinkers for two thousand years. 

You don’t have to go back to Thomas Aquinas (though that wouldn’t be a bad idea). Just the last century has produced excellent and accessible work. But whomever you read, Christianity ... considered seriously ... bears little resemblance to your Sunday school lessons. You’ve got to struggle with the real thing. You have to have your own Jacob/Israel experience. 

A good way to jar yourself out of unreflective atheism is to read about contemporary science ... particularly quantum physics, and metaphysics. 

The progress of science from Copernicus until the end of the 19th century delivered one body blow after another to simplistic religious beliefs. First, it turned out that the earth wasn’t the center of the universe (as was believed in Biblical times). It wasn’t even the center of our solar system. 

Then the Newtonian laws of physics set up the image of a clockwork universe that didn’t need a God to make it run. Then Reason with a capital R was enthroned during the Enlightenment period, in direct conflict with the intrinsic nature of religious faith. 

Then Darwin came along and destroyed the creation myth. Then Freud destroyed our confidence that we were autonomous beings and told us that faith was nothing more than wish fulfillment. If you’re waiting for that road-to-Damascus experience, you’re kidding yourself. You're not going to trip and fall into it. 

But in the late 19th century quantum physics was born, and with it began the story of an underlying physical reality that was not only stranger than we knew, but stranger than we could have imagined. That story is still unfolding - dark matter is just one of the mysteries left to be solved, and entanglement is now accepted as proven with no one having the slightest idea how it works. Imagine that?

The 20th century also revolutionized our understanding of the universe and its origins. Suppose at the beginning of the 20th century an astronomer had announced that the universe began with a big bang in which space, time, and the raw materials for the stars and planets suddenly emerged out of a timeless, spaceless singularity. He would have been laughed off the platform, because obviously what he had done was drape scientific language over the creation story in Genesis: “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” But it turns out that the imaginary silly astronomer ... was right. That’s how the universe really did get started. Something, DID come from nothing. From the void of unlimited potentiality.

After the Big Bang became accepted science, astrophysics began to calculate the infinitesimally small probability that any Big Bang would produce a universe capable of sustaining life - so infinitesimally small that the theory of multiple universes has become the necessary default explanation. Unless you posit multiple universes (and a whole lot of them too), either we are a one-in-a-billion chance or some power created the universe explicitly so that it would produce life. It sounds weird, I know, but check it out. Just Six Numbers by Martin Rees, Britain’s Astronomer Royal, who is not himself religious, is a good starting point. We can no longer deal with one universe, but ... a multiverse.

The more you are around people who are seriously religious, the harder it is to deal with ... especially for people like me. I rode that bike for years ... and I needed answers as to why I just couldn't swallow it. It was an impossibility to part the Red Sea, the resurrect dead flesh ... the scientist and reasoning just wasn't there. You needed to have blind faith. I have none. I want Gnosis ... knowledge. I need to KNOW. 

You will encounter people whose intelligence, judgment, and critical faculties are as impressive as those of your smartest atheist friends - and who also possess a disquietingly serene confidence in an underlying reality behind the many religious dogmas. They have learned to reconcile faith and reason, yes, but beyond that, they persuasively convey that there are ways of knowing that transcend intellectual understanding. They exhibit in their own person a kind of Wisdom that goes beyond just having intelligence and good judgment. There are "Christian Apologists" ... defenders of the faith ... that are really, really good.

My suggestion, is that you begin to research for yourself. Let your findings bypass the opinions of others and go directly to your heart and to your Spirit. 

A bias is a way in which we systematically get things wrong, ways in which we miscalculate, misjudge, distort reality, or see what we want to see, and the bias I'm talking about works like this: Confront someone with the fact that they are going to die and they will believe just about any story that tells them it isn't true and they can, instead, live forever, even if it means taking the existential elevator.

Religions claim divine favour for themselves, over and against other groups. This sense of righteousness and entitlement leads to violence, because conflicting claims to superiority, based on unverifiable appeals to God, cannot be adjudicated objectively. Religions do tremendous harm to global society by using violence to promote their goals, in ways that are endorsed and exploited by their leaders. Yet, they claim to represent a loving God.

If we look at the evidence of science, particularly neuroscience, it suggests that your mind, your essence, the real you, is very much dependent on a particular part of your body, that is, your mind.

Religions, scams, and hoaxes succeed because they exploit powerful psychological processes. These processes are the very ones that have enabled humans to survive and create art and technology, but also transform people into crazy perspectives - 30% of people are pantheists, 25% Christians, 20% Muslims, 14% Hindus, 7% Buddhists, and 1% Jews.

Some people prefer to leave a more tangible, biological legacy - children, for example. Or they like, they hope, to live on as part of some greater whole, a nation or a family or a tribe ... their gene pool. But again, there are skeptics who doubt whether legacy really is immortality.

Albert Einstein says: The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can for me change this. For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most previous superstitions of earlier civlizations. And the Jewish people have no different quality for me than any other people. As far as my experience goes, they are also no better than other human groups, therefore I cannot see anything chosen about them ... literally. 

The Occidental democratic practice of singling out religious liberty for special treatment under the law is not in sync with the world we live in today. The current status quo is predicated on a fundamental inequality. For example, a boy might be permitted to carry a dagger to school as part of his Sikh religion, but the same dagger would not be allowed if it were part of a family tradition. Namely, your claim of conscience counts if it is based in religion. My claim of conscience doesn’t count if it is not based in religion. That is a pernicious and indefensible inequality in the existing legal regime. And ... it is getting much worse day by day.

The origins of religious tolerance can be traced back hundreds of years to the European wars of religion. That turmoil gave way to greater acceptance of diverse religions, an important achievement of Western democracies. However, preferential treatment for religious toleration is not in step with changing times. While we understand the historical reasons why our constitution singled out religion and religious liberty 200-plus years ago, in the world we live in today, you don’t have to be religious in order to have a conscience, or morals and ethics.

While some might wish there was a way to grant exemptions to all claims of conscience, this would lead to almost insurmountable practical problems. It would be tantamount to legalizing civil disobedience. While courts can verify a person’s involvement in a religion and that religion’s particular beliefs, non-religious claims would be much more difficult to verify. We don’t have a way to peer into a man’s soul to see if his claim of conscience is really a legitimate claim of conscience. We have no way of finding "intent." 

The fact that some people believe that an omnipotent God will resurrect them to live again and others believe an omnipotent scientist will do it, suggests that neither are really believing this on the strength of the evidence. Rather, we believe these stories because we are biased to believe them, and we are biased to believe them because we are so afraid of death. My dog does not fear death. He knows nothing of it. He just enjoys right now. 

Courts still should monitor for laws that arise from intolerance - for example France’s ban on headscarves worn by Muslim women as an example. But avoiding laws motivated by intolerance is different from granting special religious exemptions from neutral laws. Such special treatment for religion often defeats society’s promotion of the general welfare. If we start carving out exemptions, we defeat the purposes of those legitimate objectives.

Spirituality is the search for an ultimate reality, a transcendent dimension of the world, an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his being, or the deepest values and meanings by which people live. Spirituality is often experienced as a source of inspiration or orientation in life. It encompasses belief in immaterial realities or experiences of the immanent or transcendent nature of the world. Spirituality is more personalized, less structured, more open to new ideas, and more pluralistic than religion. Religion is doctrines, dogmas, and rituals.

Spirituality is not related to religion. Spirituality and religion lock horns ... ram to ram. Many people define themselves as spiritual but not religious. Spiritual people believe in the existence of many different spiritual paths, emphasizing the importance of finding one's own individual path to spirituality. Most people identify themselves as spiritual but not religious. Religion is a memeplex organized by churches, whereas spirituality is defined as an internal individual search. Even Jesus supposed said "the Kingdom of God is Within You."

Spirituality exists wherever we struggle with the issues of how our lives fit into the greater scheme of things. This is true when our questions never give way to specific answers or give rise to specific practices such as prayer or meditation. We encounter spiritual issues every time we wonder where the universe comes from, why we are here, or what happens when we die. We also become spiritual when we become moved by values such as beauty, love, or creativity that seem to reveal a meaning or power beyond our visible world. An idea or practice is spiritual when it reveals our personal desire to establish a felt-relationship with the deepest meanings or powers governing life.

God is a vision of the highest values of Truth, justice, love, and goodness toward which we strive ... FOR ALL. In this sense, God/Source is a standard against which to measure ourselves and our achievements. God reminds us of the relativity and limitations of our own ideas. God serves as a corrective to our biases and a basis for critical reflection. By bringing together our highest ideals in a single symbol, God provides a focus for personal devotion or a common society. 

We experience God as love, light, power, and wisdom ... and the Source of all these things. The God we pray to is both transcendent and immanent, a part of us but also greater than us. Sometimes we experience God as a light that comes to us in the darkness. This light emanates intense love and compassion and leaves us feeling joyous and connected to all of creation. Other times, we simply hear God's guidance as thoughts ... .that still small voice trying to be heard over our shouting ego. It seems similar to a nudge or sometimes a whisper. This guidance usually comes suddenly and clearly, and it can arrive while we are deep in prayer or simply going about our business of the day. But we must be paying attention ... being mindful and aware of what comes from within. 

The big question becomes, are we doomed to lead the one life we have in a way that is shaped by fear and denial, or can we overcome this bias? Greek philosopher Epicurus thought we could. He argued that the fear of death is natural, but it is not rational. "Death," he said, "is nothing to us, because when we are here, death is not, and when death is here, we are gone." Now this is often quoted, but it's difficult to really grasp, to really internalize, because exactly this idea of being gone is so difficult to imagine. So 2,000 years later, another philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein, put it like this: "Death is not an event in life: We do not live to experience death. And so," he added, "in this sense, life has no end." Life and death cannot co-exist. 

Many Churches are dens of murderers, because those judged guilty of heresy incurred harsh penalties including death by fire, torture, boiling in oil, and a whole list of murderous devices. Religions are on the way to eventually turning into mere historical curiosities ... like so many other myths before them. The central conclusion about religion has to be that it has not made any lasting impact on human ethics, the primary engine for its existence. In this respect alone, religion has failed dismally. And if Christianity's main-claim that Jesus died on the cross for the sins of mankind ... then it was an utter failed mission. The world is still filled with sin. 

Now some Churches have issued restrictions to human reproduction and stem cell research. Many religions have concerns about where scientific research is going and the risk it is posing to their beliefs. In the long run these restrictions will not be effective. There can be no doubt that science will eventually triumph. After all, the word SCIENCE means "proof knowledge."

Every attempt to reconcile literal religion with science and technology is a virtually unattainable goal. A discouragingly futile effort to achieve consistency between science and religion is broadly ongoing today. A dominant factor is the individuals’ repeated but failed attempts to seek at least a rational link between religion and ethics. 

Ethics is a major factor in science but plays no discernible role in technology. Ethics consists of wise guides for human behavior that are vitally important to civilizing pursuits ... for all. They ensure the survival and prosperity of the human society. By contrast, religious precepts and prohibitions usually impose a hostile burden on outsiders and infidels who reject adherence to traditional and ancient norms, most of which long ago reached obsolescence. They are mostly archaic. 

Religion is incapable of granting believers the thought that there may perhaps be errors in its tenets that might contradict any part of the platform on which they stand. H.L. Mencken, witheringly summarized how science could overcome the limitations of theology and autocracy: "Every time the scientists take another fort from the theologians and the politicians there is genuine human progress."

Abrahamic Religions are inherently violent, because of an exclusivism that inevitably fosters violence against those that are considered outsiders. Abrahamic legacy is actually genocidal in nature. Just read the Old Testament with new eyes and you will see. The War God YHWH that became Christianity's God, when taken literally, is a bigoted, violent, temperamental, egotistical, and destructive Autocrat. Of this, there is no doubt. He was their Thunder, War, and Storm God ... born of an earlier polytheistic tribal tradition. Much earlier than their Assyrian and Babylonian influences. 

Overcoming the afterlife bias is not easy because the fear of death is so deeply embedded in us, yet when we see that the fear itself is not rational, and when we bring out into the open the ways in which it can unconsciously bias us, then we can at least start to try to minimize the bad influence it has on our lives.

By dwelling on inequality, the pope is promoting envy. Christianity disapproves of envy, deeming it one of the deadly sins. Civil society expects the pope to urge all people to think of themselves in relation to God and to their own fullest potential. Encouraging people to measure themselves against others, only leads to grief ... and of course, failure. Resenting the success of others is a sin in itself.

Pantheism is the belief that everything composes an all-encompassing immanent God and the universe is identical with divinity itself. Pantheists, thus do not believe in a "personal god." Pantheism was popularized in the modern era as both a theology and philosophy based on the work of the seventieth century philosopher Baruch Spinoza. Einstein says: "We followers of Spinoza see God in the wonderful order and lawfulness of all that exists and in its soul as it reveals itself in man and animals. I do not believe in a personal God, and I have never denied this, but have expressed it clearly."

It helps to see life as being like a book: Just as a book is bounded by its covers, by beginning and end, so our lives are bounded by birth and death, and even though a book is limited by beginning and end, it can encompass distant landscapes, exotic figures, fantastic adventures. And even though a book is limited by beginning and end, the characters within it know no horizons. They only know the moments that make up their story, even when the book is closed. And so the characters of a book are not afraid of reaching the last page. Long John Silver is not afraid of you finishing your copy of "Treasure Island." And so it should be with us. It is the pages and the stories we write and live, it is the dash between our two dates that is most important.

Imagine the book of your life, its covers, its beginning and end, and your birth and your death. You can only know the moments in between, the moments that make up your life. It makes no sense for you to fear what is outside of those covers, whether it be before your birth, or after your death. And you needn't worry how long the book is, or whether it's a comic strip or an epic novel. The only thing that matters is that you make it a good story. And do your best to make it righteously memorable to others.

Additional Blog

What Acts 17:24-28 Really Means

What Acts 17:24-28 Really Means

In the Bible, Paul visits Athens, according to scripture. In the Book of Acts beginning with verse 17:24 we find the following statements. And we're going to break it down into pieces since there is so much territory to cover in just this one verse.

The verse opens with this statement:

“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. 

Right off the bat, Pauls tells the people in Athens multiple things of great importance. First of all, this "God" or Source, made the world and everything in it. And from what did he make it from? God stuff thats what. So everything ... is made out of God stuff. Everything. Secondly, Paul says that "God/Source is the Lord of Heaven and Earth." A Kingdom needs a King, so the king of this creation, is the Source of this creation. The "Lord" ... someone or something having power, authority, or influence; a master or ruler. This word is rooted in it's ancient etymology as "Bread-Keeper." Remember that the word "Bethel-hem" means "House of Bread." All is symbolic.

"And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else."

Next ... "and He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything." Worship is not needed. We cannot do anything for God/Source, since God/Source provides all things TO US. He has no need of anything from us. In fact, the next line says "He himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else." Pretty clear to me. Source ... provides everything. Including life and existence. Our very breath ... the source of the energy we need to stay alive and operating in this beingness. We are the light of the world, Source provides the power and electricity running the whole show. 

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands."

From ONE MAN it says. Well, what is a man? This word has it's roots in ancient Sanskrit and means "mankind/mind." So from one mind, or mankind, he made all the nations. The word "nations" means birth, tribe, descendants, species, and common ancestry. Again ... ALL mankind, to inhabit ALL the Earth (matter). And, decided who comes and goes between Spirit and Matter ... and when and where they come and go. 

"God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us."

Ask yourself "where did I come from?" and the answer has already been given. From God/Source. Where everything came from ... and remember ... all made out of God Stuff. The only materials found at the time Source expanded. He is not far, because he is INSIDE and IS all things. You, me, and the entire single organism of the universe. 

And now ... this part: "For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own wise men have said, ‘We are his offspring.’"

Wow. How incredibly simple is this ... and yet we still fight over it. "For IN him (inside of him / Spirit consciousness), we live, and move, and have our being. We exists IN God as God made from God Stuff and are ONE thing ... GOD. We, as Jesus said (not just Jesus) are HIS OFFSPRING. The word "offspring" means descendants ... and generally younger or newer in age. We are DESCENDED from God. This word means to "dismount, to fall from, to come down from." This is our "fall" into matter from Spirit. Not some church story of sin and fruit. These are allegories. Not real events ... surface stories with deeper meanings. 

So you see how much can be extracted from just one short paragraph of scripture when time is taken to find what the words means and how they were translated from their original languages? Question everything. Don't let someone else decide your spiritual fate. Do your research and let it speak to the God Stuff inside of you. You will know, rather than have to guess.

Saying Goodbye To Facebook

Saying Goodbye to Facebook

Is this really a possibility? Many of us have tried to break the addiction, many times. But ... back we go ... a day, a week, maybe just an hour later. It's kind of like quitting smoking. It's nearly impossible due to the power of the addiction, but when we try and do both ... we make a public announcement. I'm quitting smoking! I'm giving up Facebook! And the next thing you know, you're back online and you probably have a fire-stick in your hand too. 

So why is it that Facebook so addicting? Sure, it's a great place to stay in touch and reconnect with friends and family that you may not even be geographically close to anymore. Old high school and college friends, work colleagues, and new friends with common interest. We are social creatures ... a society. We depend on interaction with others. Sometimes, we like to show off. Sometimes we like to lurk quietly in the background. And sometimes, we use the forum as political, religious, newsy, informational, nutritional, and as a springboard for hundreds of other personal and professional issues. 

Herein lies one of the most difficult problems. There are no leaders, no moderators, no peace keepers, no filters, nothing. It's pretty much an anything goers cyber environment. Except, they still have some rules on nudity and partial nudity. How that is disallowed, but videos of decapitations, murders, violence, and abuse are allowed is beyond my understanding. But I digress. 

Sure, you can set up your own group, with your own rules, but who's going to police it? You are. Got time for that? Yeah, I didn't think so. So as you end up scrolling down the main FB wall, hot girls on Spring Break, adorable puppies and kittens, new baby births, your friend Mike's new Camaro ... and then BAM ... a self-playing and self-starting video of someone being beaten, decapitated, or shot ... a guy on a motorcycle getting run over, or images of some 4 year old little girl dying of cancer with her face disfigured, and in a constant state of suffering just waiting her turn to die a horrible miserable death without ever having had the chance to live. That's Facebook. The new social frontier. 

On Labour Day 2014, I was rushed to the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack. I knew I was going to die. There was no doubt in my mind. To make a very long story short, I was diagnosed with PTSD, Anxiety, and Panic Attacks. Never had it before ... all new to me and perhaps the worst thing I have been through multiple times since that day. The day before my first 911 call, I had seen an auto-start video of what looked to be a very cute video. So I watched it. In seconds, and too fast to have stopped it, I saw a girl doing one of the most horrible and atrocious acts I had ever seen ... and it was being captured on video. 

I will save you the details because it was so bad, that it immediately crushed every part of me that is human and alive. How could anyone have done this? Why? How could they even "think" of doing such evil, much less to carry it out and have someone else with them to capture it on video? Then, have the audacity to put the video on FB for all to see, including young children. This was an empty, shell of a body with no soul to have perpetrated such a thing. 

Even though I have been through horrible traumatic heart surgeries, diseases, and injuries in my life ... nothing had prepared me to see that. For me, THIS was the catalyst that brought up from within my unconscious mind all the darkness that had been stored there, safe from my conscious mind. Simply put, it has changed my life in a less than desirable way. All experiences are our teachers ... I understand this Truth. But now ... I deal with constant anxiety and panic attacks. Randomly, and very debilitating. 

Until someone devises a GRACEBOOK, designed at spreading good news and positive influence, I have decided to stay away. Although I have not "deleted" my account until I figure out how to download and preserve years of pictures, the FB APP has been deleted from all my mobile devices. My suggestion for you, is at the very least, give yourself a reprise from the daily saturation of negativity that enters your subconscious mind whether you choose to allow it in or not. All information enters the mind. It is a sponge. It is your Tree of the Knowledge of Good And Evil. Try and stay around the good stuff. Try and hang out under the Tree of Life instead.

Just a thought ...

Alternative Look At Earth History

Alternative Look At Earth History

In this deep article we will ask 20 history questions that have yet to be answered in our schools. Traditional educational systems basically teach us that the history of man only dates back to about 8,000 years ago while religious texts date mankind to approximately 6,000 years ago. It is more than obvious that there a massive push to occlude our true history and origins by the powers that be.

While you may not agree with some of these questions, I always ask readers to please try to view them with an open mind. As you’ll see, the history we have been taught has been manipulated and obscured from us. I would also like to add, as I usually do ... do not believe a word I say. Or anyone else for that matter. Not even the Pope. 

Do your own research and discovery and let your findings speak to you higher inner-self. Your higher mind and your heart will know the Truth when it is experienced. You will glean and discern that which is necessary for your particular journey in this life. 

Now, ask yourself (or others) the following questions:

A map drawn on a gazelle skin of an unfrozen Antarctica was found in 1929. The map was drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, who had privileged access to the Imperial Library of Constantinople. Contained within the notes found on the map, Reis stated that he compiled and copied the data from a large number of source maps, some of which dated back to 4 BCE, or earlier. Our current history books tell us that Antarctica was discovered by Captain James Cook while crossing the Antarctic Circle on January 17, 1773 with the ships HMS Resolution and Adventure.

1. How did Piri Reis know of Antarctica several hundred years before Captain James Cook ‘discovered’ it? The last time Antarctica was not frozen was at least 4,000 BCE.

2. Where did the Imperial Library of Constantinople get THEIR information and who is responsible for the initial drawing of that map?

A tiny figurine made of baked-clay was brought up amongst the debris churned out by the huge drill bit during the drilling of a well in Nampa, Idaho in 1889. This object is a one inch long figure with one leg broken off at the knee. 

3. Is it possible that mankind has been here many times LONG BEFORE our recorded past? 

4. How many millennia would it take for an object like this to be buried 300 feet into the ground? A basketball basket is 10 feet off the ground. 300 feet is 30 times deeper in the earth than that height. 

According to Darwinism (Theory of Evolution, Charles Darwin), it is theorized that man evolved from apes.

5. Ask yourself seriously, if man has evolved from apes, then why are there still apes that are apes? A logical question if you ask me. 

6. There are pyramids on every continent of the world. There are Tryptichs all over the world. Who built them, and why were they built? Certainly not for burial chambers of Kings.

In Ecuador, one large Jade cup, and 12 smaller Jade cups were found. Each of the smaller cups are slightly different in size, but if you were to fill each one and pour them into the larger one, the contents would fill the larger cup ... exactly. The large cup has a perfect inlaid star constellation, showing Orion and other stars.

Klaus Dona stated, “inside the big cup it is very, very magnetic and outside the cup nearly nothing. Professional geologists are saying this is impossible because if a stone has metal particles inside the stone, it must be the same magnetism from both sides.”

7. If scientists say that it is impossible to have a magnetic inside of a jade cup, with a non-magnetic outside of the same jade cup, then who created these vessels? While we're at it, in Illoinois a well bit brought up a 200,000 year old bronze coin from a depth of 114 feet just outside Chillicothe, Illinois. 

Let that sink in for a moment - a two-hundred-thousand year old coin - in Illinois. According to the Illinois State Geological Survey, the deposits containing the coin are between 200,000 and 400,000 years old. where could they have possibly come from?

8. Long before our "state-sponsored" (and Global Elite dark agenda) recorded history will admit that civilized man was on Earth. So then, what culture was it that made this coin?

More than 350 artifacts were found in Ecuador within an old tunnel system that was discovered. One artifact in particular, shows the same pyramid with an "all-seeing eye" at the top of it. When placed under a black light, the eye takes on an interesting hue ... while on the bottom of this artifact, you can see a star map of Orion’s Belt ... along with writing that is older than any known writing on this planet. 

According to the research of Klaus Dona, the same writing has been found all over the world, proving that there was a pre-existing GLOBAL civilization that is much older than any Sanskrit writings. If you're not familiar with these language studies ... that would be a very, very, long time ago. 

9. Why do all school history classes exclude all of this information?

We are seeing a continuing theme involving Orion’s Belt.  The pyramids on the Giza Plateau also reflect the exact same alignment as the “3 Kings” of Orion’s Belt. Perfect alignment, with such supposedly "primitive" peoples. 

10. Who were these visitors who came to this planet who indicate their origins are from Orion’s Belt? It is obvious that Orion’s Belt plays a large significance in the origins of mankind. What is their agenda?

11. What is the significance of the Orion’s Belt constellation?

Professor Kurt Schildmann, former President of the German Linguistic Association, called this writing “pre-Sanskit” (that would be older than 6,000 years old) and was able to translate the writing as follows:

“The son of the creator comes.” Please read that again. 

12. What is the true meaning of this pyramid and why is this symbol still being used?

Just a quick aside ... the word pyramid is derived from the Greek words PYRAMIS and PYRAMIDOS. The meaning of the word Pryamis is obscure and may relate to the shape of a pyramid. The word Pyramidos has been translated as "Fire In The Middle". 

The ancient Khemitians (Khemet/Egyptians) used the term PR.NTR, Per-Neter, for pyramid. Per means "house" and Neter has been translated by Egyptologists as "God" or "Goddess" but we must also consider the interpretation "House of Nature, House of Energy" for Per-Neter. The temple was Per-Ba (House of the Soul) and the tomb was Per-Ka (House of the Physical Projection) according to the indigenous tradition. 

This was no burial chamber for Royalty. One of the main purposes of the Great Per-Neter was to generate, transform, and transmit energy. The ancient mystery schools new this, and did their best to hide and preserve the Truth ... to protect it from getting into the wrong hands. 

So now, back to the visitors came to this planet from Orion's Belt and what was the purpose of their quest? 

In the pre-religious Anunnaki creation myth (from the Sumerian Clay Tablets), Anu had 2 sons, Enki and Enlil. Enki, also known as Ea (as in EArth) in Sumerian texts, was loving and kind to the what were genetically modified humans who mined gold for the Anunnaki. They had a dire need for gold on their home planet. Sound a bit like Superman to you? The stories start somewhere ... 

13. Does “The son of the creator comes” refer to Enki?

The Old and New Testament of the Christian Bible clearly shows one vengeful OT god who kills millions of people, while an apparently different NT god who is all loving. Even among the OT Hebrews, they were originally polytheistic, prior to monotheistic, but they had to fix a big problem first. 

The northern kingdom (Israel), had one God, and the southern kingdom (Judea) had another one. So they had to bring EL and YHWH together somehow. The we thrown in this satan/devil thing ... and we end up like Zoroastrianism and their Good God/Bad God ... Ahura Mazda and Ahriman.

14. Does the bible reflect the story of Enlil (Old Testament, malevolent towards humans) and Enki (New Testament, all-loving toward humans)?

In the Old Testament, Genesis 1:26-28, it states, “Let US make man (mankind) in OUR image, after OUR likeness.” It goes on to say, “Be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the Earth.”

15. Who is “us” and “our”? Why “replenish”? To replenish suggests to "do it again." Is this a  proving ground? Some kind of test facility or incubator?

In 1851 in Dorchester, Massachusetts (yup, USA again), a 4-1/2 inch high zinc and silver alloy vase was dynamited out of solid rock 15 feet below the surface layer. On the sides were figures of flowers in bouquet arrangements, inlaid with pure silver. The rock out of which it came is estimated to be 100,000 years old.

16. According to academia, what civilization was capable of this type of art ... 100,000 years ago?

Over 200 metallic spheres (called the Klerksdorp Spheres) have been found in South Africa and are estimated to be over a billion years old. There are two types of spheres: “one of solid bluish metal with white flecks, and another which is a hollow ball filled with a white spongy center” (Jimison, 1982).

17. Our recorded history tells us that civilized man has only been here anywhere between 6 to 8,000 years ... so who made these spheres millions of years before that?

With the exception of stone and precious metals, virtually everything we own right now would eventually turn to dirt throughout the millennia, including all of our TV’s, cellphones, cars, planes and everything made of plastic. If by chance, some major catastrophe were to hit our planet, within 100,000 years, just about every hint of civilization would be buried under years of decay. You've seen the documentaries on TV ... not much would be left in a short period of time, relatively speaking ... considering the age of the planet and the universe.

18. Is it possible that there are malevolent (evil) rulers who have kept us in economic subservience for literally hundreds of thousands of years, if not millions of years?

All religions seem to share similar stories ... worldwide. And this information was disseminated without Google and satellites. The crust of the foundation of them all is far too similar to be coincidental or "dreamed-up." 

19. Is it possible that this template has been used since the earliest incarnations came to this planet, perhaps billions of years ago? 

20. When will we finally learn to live without being economic slaves to the same system of domination and control? There are a small number of people who govern this entire planet today. These numbers are barely in the hundreds. They know everything. They have hidden everything. They own everything ... money, countries, ecclesiastical powers, militaries, everything. 

You must ask yourself, and seek the answers. You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free my friends.

Are You An Active Being Or Being Inert?

Are You An Active Being Or Being Inert?

Here are some quick words to help describe the state of being inert:

1. Lacking the ability or strength to move.
2. Lacking vigor.
3. Chemically inactive.
4. Not able to affect other chemicals when in contact with them. Not chemically reactive.
5. Deficient in active properties; especially lacking a usual or anticipated chemical or biological action. 

Here, also ... are some quick synonyms. Dead, dormant, idle, inactive, inoperative, off, unused, and vacant. 

Now let's look at words to help describe the state of being active:

1. Energy, physical movement.
2. Participation in an action or movement.
3. Producing or involving action or movement.
4. Requiring the expenditure of energy.
5. Causing something through physical energy pursuits. 
6. Energetic activity.
7. Engaged in action.

Here, also ... are some quick synonyms. Alive, functional, going, living, operating, in force, and industrious. 

We can see by looking at both of these words, that they inseparable from who we are, what we were, and what we will be. Basically, active or inert ... alive or dead. 

Now keep in mind, if wholly inert, matter would be invisible, imperceptible to touch or feeling and outside of any possibility of becoming known to us. Since the time of and experimentation of Albert Einstein, we now know that matter and energy are no longer understood as two distinct entities. 

Therefore, as fire is physical, and hence "active," it is a physical representative of the life-energy or Spiritual Fire ... or INRI. But we are spiritual energy emanating from Source, and we are encased, or wrapped in a bag of skin and bones ... physical energy (matter), crossing the boundaries between the within and the with out ... but not existing at once. Without the active driver, the car is inert. Same as it is with us. We are the Observer, the Witness, emanating from Spirit within, and projecting into form without. Think of our true spiritual/light selves as the light coming from the back of the theatre and our physical experience as what is projected upon the screen. 

The most important point to remember is that active and inert, life and death, cannot coexist. You can only be alive, or dead ... not both. As Epicurus (341-271 BCE) once said: 

"If death causes you no pain when you are dead, it is foolish to allow death to cause you pain now."

"Why should I fear death? If ... I AM, death is not. If death IS, I AM not. Why should I fear which can only exist when I do not?"

Epicurus also said:

"Do not spoil what you have now, by desiring what you have not. Remember, that what you have now, was once among the things you had once hoped for."

"I have never wished to cater to the crowd; for what I know ... they do not approve, and what they approve ... I do not know."

The title of this article is "Are You An Active Being Or Being Inert?" One ... the active being, has life and is in motion. The other is inert and has no being. While we are alive in this physical world, our energy vortices are hurling our cells within and throughout the universe for all to see. When our physical existence becomes inert, our energy returns to the unseen. Same as lighting a match. You do not create the fire, you bring it into activity in this realm. Once the match burns out, it is considered inert ... but the flame has returned back into the realm of the unseen 

Spirit AND Matter are energy. High vibration, versus low vibration. The higher the vibes, the higher into the realm of universal unconsciousness we return ... back to Source, or God.  But we're still here. Where else is there to go? We go out, we come in, we go up, we come down. As above, so below. Imagine a ceiling fan. When it is "off" ... it is inert. When it is "on" ... it is active. The faster the blades spin, the less visible they become until finally ... you can't see them anymore. But the fan ... is still ON. Same with sound. If the frequency is too low, or too high ... we can't hear it. But it's still there. 

Such it is with what we really are ... energy spiritual beings having a physical experience in the lower frequencies of vibrating energy ... perceivable by our physical senses. Enjoy your eternal journey. This trip around is but a blip ... a pit stop or a run into the Service Plaza for coffee. Just enjoy it, and make the best of every moment, for yourself, and for others.

Indiana Wants You - NOT

Indiana Wants You - NOT

Two gay guys walk into a bar in Indiana.

Bartender says "hey, are you guys together, you know, like together/together?"

He continues, "it's the law now, I can refuse you service because of my religious beliefs."

One of the gay guys says, "really? watch us take our gay money to another state where they don't discriminate based on manufactured biblical bullshit."

Two gays guys walk out of a bar in Indiana.

I wonder what "Indiana Joan" would have to say about this?

For those of you who believe the Bible speaks out against gays and lesbians, your Pastors, Priests, and Ministers have not done their homework, and neither have you. The fact is, that the Bible actually contains no word for homosexuality or homosexual. The word homosexual is nowhere in the original Hebrew or the original Greek.

The word homosexual didn’t even exist when the Bible was written. It wasn’t until the mid 1800's that Dr. Karoly Benkert, a Hungarian physician created the term by combining "homo," the Greek word for same, with the Latin "sexual." The word homosexual did not come into use in the United States until the 1880’s.

Even the concept of homosexual didn’t exist when the Bible was written. If you see the word homosexual or homosexuality in the Bible, it is because translators chose those words to reflect their own homophobic feelings and ideas.

Here are some places in the Bible where you might find the word "homosexual" translated incorrectly:

The Hebrew word "kedah" means temple prostitute and is sometimes inaccurately translated as sodomite or homosexual.

In 1 Corinthians, sodomite or homosexual are sometimes used, but they are incorrect translations of the Greek word "malakos" which means something closer to effeminate or soft. It was a derogatory reference to royalty and priests who wandered about in their silky white robes, gold and precious mineral jewelry ... with not a hair out of place or a dirty fingernail. 

1 Corinthians also refers in Greek to "arsenokaitai," which appears nowhere else in the Bible or in Greek writings about homoerotic sexuality, but refers to a male prostitute.

Jude 7 sometimes refers to homosexual flesh that the Sodomites pursued. This is an inaccurate translation of "hetera sarx" which means, literally, strange flesh ... as an attempt to describe the flesh of the angels who were sent by God to evaluate Sodom and Gomorrah in that myth. 

In Timothy 1:9-10, translators sometimes use homosexual for the original Greek words, pornoi, arsenokoitai, and andrapodistai, meaning male prostitutes, males who hire male prostitutes or the slave dealers who procure them.

Including the word homosexual in the Bible is the choice of translators and is not a reflection of the Bible. Nor it is a reflection of God/Source. Everything is as it should be. The flowers, the rain, the people, and the terrain. This Source of ALL things that we call God, is on a mission. Creation. The universal continues creating ... all from within itself. It cares not whether boy likes boy, or girl likes girl. The only physical drawbacks of same-sex relations, are a lack of the ability to physically procreate. But don't worry ... there are a lot of kids have been thrown away by their "parents" that would be more than happy to be raised in a gay or lesbian home. Loved, fed, clothed, and sheltered. 

If there is a problem with gay and lesbians, the problem is YOU. Deal with it. I have seen parents disavow their OWN children simply because of their sexual orientation. Are you aware that we are ALL both masculine and feminine in nature? If we were not, there would be no cell reproduction and no life form in your body. You would be dead and dust were it not for BOTH properties. 

Are you prepared to face YOUR God and tell him that he made a mistake? I seriously doubt it. 

And back to Indiana ... my prayer and my desire is that this ignorant and imbecilic law be overturned by the Supreme Court of these United States. YOU are causing division. You are helping to replace our country with the Divided States of America. Shame on you. Take your homophobic agenda to Kaffeklubben Island or Coffee Club Island - a small island lying off the northern tip of Greenland. It contains the northernmost point of land on Earth. You can have it your way, but bring a coat. God forbid you should have to cuddle with anyone to keep warm.

Just a thought ...

Taking Upon The Sins of The World

Taking Upon The Sins of The World

Any Christian would be familiar with the title of this article. Let's have a quick glance at 1 Peter 2:24 just for the benefit of those who are unfamiliar or would like clarity. Here are three most identifiable translations from the original Greek:

"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed."
~ 1 Peter 2:24 KJV

"Who his own self bore our sins in his body upon the tree: that we, being dead to sins, should live to justice: by whose stripes you were healed."
~ 1 Peter 2:24 - Douay-Rheims Bible

"who our sins himself did bear in his body, upon the tree, that to the sins having died, to the righteousness we may live; by whose stripes ye were healed,"
~ 1 Peter 2:24 - Young's Literal Translation

Wow. So much being said in so few words. I ask that for just a few moments you set aside what you have been told by Christianity that Jesus, the Son of God, was crucified, buried, and resurrected on the third day ... literally. Just bear with me and remove the literal and historical event briefly. I have a very important point to make, and sometimes, beneath the layers of the surface stories lie very poignant Truths.

First, notice ... tree versus cross. Is there a reason or purpose? Even the Qur'an uses the word "tree." So was it a cross (ancient Druidic symbolism) fashioned from a tree, or was it something more. Something more closely related to the Tree of Life, and the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil. Or ... was it ALL of these?

As the story goes, Jesus the man wasn't fully considered God until his complete and total resurrection from the dead ... as The Christ, evidence to the full power of God. Even though there are stories of Jesus raising the dead, it wasn't confirmed until he presumably raised himself. After all, whom other than a God could raise a man from the dead? This sealed it for billions of followers. So, we move on ... 

The verse in 1 Peter tells us that Jesus (the man), bore our sins in his body on the tree ... voluntarily mind you (he had free will as well). So our "sins" (wrong thinking/ignorance/missing the mark of Truth) would die with him. This was identical to the sacrificial scapegoat of Judaism. The sins of man were placed on the goat, and it was sacrificed as a traditional display of atonement and redemption to their God YHWH for their intentional sins. One goat died, the other was released into the wilderness to carry upon it the unintentional sins. 

So, if Jesus the man, believes that he can bear the sins of mankind upon him, and at his death and sacrifice, all would be redeemed, free, and righteous ... then what a noble thing this would be. However, the Hebrews repeated this process every year and still ... sin was rampant anyway. One man, cannot remove the sins of another. Nor can God or Devil. If I ran the red light and caused an accident, it is ME who is responsible, and it is me who will be fined, or jailed. No one else can take my place. 

In the Old Testament Book of Deuteronomy we find this very interesting verse, hardly ever spoken of from the pulpits of our churches, and for good reason:

"The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin."
~ Deuteronomy 24:16 - KJV

Also, according to the very same Bible, God even throws this out directly from the Book of Amos:

"I hate, and have rejected your festivities: and I will not receive the odour of your assemblies."
~ Amos 5:21 - Douay-Rheims Bible

In other words ... your sacrifices do not work with me. No only that, but in the New Testament we also find an interesting comment:

"For there is no respect of persons with God." 
~ Romans 2:11 - KJV

No favourites. No special races. No "chosen people." No denominational entitlement. You get my point. Everyone is EQUAL in the realm of Spirit/Source. The book even says so. 

Back to our original point and verse - last section. It ends with so that by "righteousness we may live; by whose stripes ye were healed,"

So Jesus as a man, as you and I are, thought that it would be possible to take upon the sins of others ... to take the rap so to speak ... and leave behind a perfected and righteous world. But there still exists sin doesn't there? This "sin" or ignorant thinking comes from our selfish ego, not our Divine self. This is the deeper message. We remove our own sins. We save ourselves. And then ... once this is complete among mankind, once we all walk in the light of Truth ... the body of Christ becomes complete. Heaven comes to Earth. 

Again, leave behind the literal story of Jesus just for one more minute. As Jesus did, do we also not try and take upon the sins of the world? To take it upon ourselves to actually think that we can change someone other than ourself? We all try and bite off the whole sandwich sometimes don't we? We think of ourselves as the "fixer" ... the "answer man" ... the one who can handle it all, stress included. But in the end, we are crucifying ourselves. We are sacrificing ourselves. And we will die upon this Tree of Life in the process. Heart disease, anger, murder, war, all part of our desire to control ... to save the world!

The story of the resurrection claims that all the Mary's who saw Jesus, didn't even recognize him. They mistook him for the Gardener. The one who places the seeds and helps them grow into a bountiful harvest and picks the weeds. He was no longer Jesus The Man, but he had resurrected the God within him to become The Christ. Just as we all do ... when we know the Truth. He became a new man. The old man had died. 

It is not our job to "save" mankind from it's sin and ignorance. Leave that to God/Source Energy ... the universe. It is our job to change ourselves from ego-driven, to Spirit-driven. From man, to Divine. This is why he said "take up your cross." Each of us has our own Saviour within, our Higher-Self ... the Christ Consciousness ... the mind of God. You can't save the world, unless you first begin with yourself. Set the example. Crucify the ego, resurrect the Divine. 

Just a thought ...
