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 ...

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.

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.

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.

Who Or What Is This I AM Anyway

Who Or What Is This I AM Anyway

Before we get too deep into this subject, let's peek at a couple of Bible verses first.

Exodus 3:14

"And God answered unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM. And he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the sons of Israel: I AM (YHWH) has sent me unto you."
~Jubilee Bible Translation

"And God saith unto Moses, 'I AM THAT WHICH I AM;' He saith also, thus dost thou say to the sons of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."
~Young's Literal Translation

John 14:6

"Jesus said unto him, I AM the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes unto the Father, but by me."
~Jubilee Bible Translation

"Jesus saith to him, 'I AM the way, and the truth, and the life, no one doth come unto the Father, if not through me;"
~Young's Literal Translation

So as we reach this point in the article, we see the use of "I AM" in multiple verses. So first, we establish according to the story told in Exodus, that Moses climbed the mountain (reached a higher level of consciousness) and talked with God/Source Energy - The Almighty. Moses was told, according to the scripture, BY GOD ... that his NAME was "I AM." Or, IAM THAT I AM, or I AM WHICH I AM. This of course, dependent upon translations from the original Hebrew and Greek, which are far more powerful than that later languages of Latin and Greek. 

Just to interject something here ... something for your consideration. God says "I AM ... THAT ... I AM." Much in the same way that we might say "John ... THAT ... John." So as to avoid any confusion, we may emphasize THAT. However, keep also in mind ... as used in Exodus 3:14 - "Ehyeh asher ehyeh" literally translates as "I Will Be What I Will Be", with attendant theological and mystical implications in Hebrew tradition. However, in most English Bibles, in particular the King James Version, this phrase is rendered as I AM THAT I AM.

We also read in the Book of John, Jesus is saying "I AM the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. Let's stop here for a second. Who is? Who? "I AM" is who is. I AM ... the Source Energy and God of all. We were told back in the OT Book of Exodus presumably from the mouth of God, at least according to the Biblical record, this I AM ... GOD IS. So ... GOD IS (I AM) the Way, the Truth, and the Life. 

Remember also that as you introduce yourself to someone you have never met, you say "I AM ... Jerry." By doing this, you unknowingly acknowledge your inner Divinity and the individualized essence or particle of God that your parents named you ... Jerry. So in Truth, you are as GOD IS (I AM) while being Jerry. Do you find this coincidental? I do not.   

Now we move to the second half of the verse from John. "no one comes unto the Father, but by me." We must now define the "Father." He didn't repeat I AM, this time he says "the Father." Father is representative of Source. The masculine aspect of creation. The SPIRIT. Mother, is the feminine creative aspect. The MATTER. The Greek word for Spirit is PNEUMA. The Greek for Mother is MATERA. In Greek, Father is Patera, in Latin Patter, and in Latin the word for Mother is MATER. So we have Spirit and Matter. Seen and Unseen. Heaven and Earth. 

When we graduate from a University, is becomes our Alma Mater. This means "nurturing Mother" in Latin. Also, the Hebrew word Almah means young maiden, as does Pathenos in Greek. This is where we get the translation of "Virgin" Mary from. It is not sexual ... as in a virgin unsexed, but is meant as a young and innocent maiden. 

So I stray once again, but so much inter-locking pieces are everywhere. Scripture is like a box of Legos ... the size of an office building. Now we return to "no one comes unto the Father, but by me." Father being SPIRIT. So this Itinerant Preacher from the hills of the Galilee has something. He has either found it through self-discovery given to him by his Higher-Self, or he has experienced it first hand in one on many Mystery Schools in existence at that time. It is the GOD within us ... the Divine Spark ... the Christ Consciousness. 

So when we are lost, we ask a guide for help and directions. Jesus, as a guide for many at the time among his followers is saying ... "I know how you can get to Spirit." I have experienced GNOSIS (knowingness) and I KNOW the way, and I KNOW the Truth, and I KNOW the life ... and you can't get there unless I SHOW you. Jesus, Master Teacher, Spiritual Guide, Sage, Avatar, Hierophant, Shaman, Illuminated Master, Teacher of Righteousness ... this is the guy that can show Neo the door as Morpheus did in the Matrix. 

Are you getting this? Like a manufacturer label, or an ID chip, there is something within each and every one of us that branded us. Inside the drivers door of a car is the manufacture date, who built it, when and where, etc. We have one too ... and it is Spiritual and Invisible by our physical vision. But we KNOW it is there. Just like we can't see the wind, but we know it's there. We can't see the molecules, atoms, quarks, neurons, electrons, and protons that bind all thing together as one but they are there. Collectively, we are one organism ... what we have called the universe. Universe means the entire cosmos, the totality of all things joined together ... ALL in ONE. Entire and WHOLE (Holy). 

Jesus WAS God. WE are God. Everything is God. He said we would do greater things than he. It was said in the 2nd Book of John "as Jesus is, so are we in this world." We are ALL sons and daughters of God. The story of Jesus is OUR-story, not just HIS-story. It is the story of the Spiritual, emotional, metal, and physical life cycle and existence in both Spirit and Matter. God/Source experiences life with us, through is, and AS US. The light from the back of the theatre is the light of life that we project from the great within on the screen of life. 

I AM ... YOU. You are me. Al that is ... IS. The Source Energy of every cell in this organism is GOD. I don't care what name or label you give it. I AM "THAT" I AM. And you are THAT I AM. And we are THAT I AM. Acts 17:28 says:

"for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own wise men have said, 'For we also are His children.'"

What Exactly Is Anxiety?

What Exactly Is Anxiety?

One reassuring fact that I have learned through personal experience about anxiety and panic attacks, is that they’re perfectly normal human responses when faced with danger and uncertainty. Your mind and body are working together just the way they’re supposed to work; keeping you safe.

"An uncomfortable feeling of worry, nervousness, or agitation; usually about something that ‘might’ be expected to happen."

Man the Hunter:
Man the hunter is a term often associated with our early ancestors, but ‘man the hunted’ is a more accurate portrayal. Man was in fact rather a feeble creature compared to those creatures that he shared his world with. Creatures much faster and stronger, and much better equipped; all with sharp teeth and claws. This was ... "fight or flight." 

So how did mankind ever survive to get this far? By being cautious, by being alert, and by being good at spotting and avoiding danger. So you can see that had your ancestors never developed the ability to experience anxiety and panic, you probably wouldn’t be here reading these words today.

Misusing your imagination:
What we’ve been talking about so far is a response to a real, or at least potentially real, threat. The human brain, however, has evolved another very clever feature; it’s called the imagination. A person can use their imagination wisely to formulate and perfect all manner of new ideas, but they can easily misuse it too.

One crucial point to grasp is that when imagining something vividly, the mind cannot tell the difference between what’s real and what’s imaginary. This makes it possible for a person to conjure up thoughts that trick the mind into generating fear and panic responses to situations that aren’t really happening. And because the mind has the capacity to create limitless worrying scenarios, so a person’s anxiety can become equally limitless.

Anxiety is essentially about planning and preparation; trying to foresee all conceivable hazards – what ifs – so as to be able to plan for them or avoid them altogether. The trouble with that is, you’re always planning for disasters in the future; disasters that will probably never happen.

All that avoidance means nothing is ever achieved, and what started out as a ‘comfort zone’ can slowly turn into a ‘velvet prison’. Avoidance also keeps your mind focused exactly where it doesn’t need to be; on the very thing that’s causing your anxiety and fear.

Yellow alert:
Anxiety is a bit like being on ‘yellow alert’, not quite the ‘red alert’ of fear and panic. The senses have picked up on something uncertain and the body is on standby, just in case. Whereas panic is a relatively short lived response to a real or perceived threat, anxiety is like being on constant lookout for that threat. Standing by ... and at a moments command from within ... BAM. There it is. And for me, if it's a full-blown panic attack, I am sincerely convinced with no possibility of doubt that in the next few minutes I will surely die. I can't even count how trips I have been rushed to the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack, stroke, pacer/defib electronic malfunction, or ... it could be that anxiety/panic thing again. 

Subtle changes occur within the body, including:
- Jumpiness and feeling on edge ... jitters and fear.
- Heightened senses, looking out for danger.
- Muscles tensed, just in case physical exertion is called for.

This state of readiness means the body can quickly activate the fear and panic response – fight or flight – if events deem it necessary.

Problems start when a person worries about all kinds of things that aren’t actually happening at the moment; worrying about things in future. Because these events cannot easily be resolved at this time, the person experiences a state of anxiety for prolonged periods. This is what makes anxiety so mentally and physically exhausting.

Anxiety also distracts a person’s attention away from the many other things they need to be doing. Life starts to get out of control, leading to more stress and even more anxiety.

Did you know...
Fear is experienced by both humans and animals alike, but anxiety is an emotion exclusive to us humans?

Types of anxiety
Anxiety falls into several categories, and a person can experience elements of one or more of them:

Anticipatory anxiety – Worrying about a specific problem or situation that, at this moment in time, has an uncertain outcome.

General anxiety – A more general background level of worrying. Again, it’s about things that have an uncertain outcome, but this time the subject is more vague and ill defined. This is often referred to as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD).

Social anxiety – Worrying about social situations, interacting with other people, and having undue concern about what other people think.

Health anxiety – Worrying about potential health problems and about having a (usually imagined) serious illness.

Intrusive thoughts – Worrying about random thoughts and trying to assign some kind of meaning to them.

Other conditions closely related to anxiety are:

Obsessive compulsive disorder – Often referred to as OCD; a person experiences obsessive recurring thoughts, followed by a compulsion to perform some sort of ritualistic behaviour to nullify those thoughts.

Panic attacks – Intense and overwhelming fear, experienced when facing a real or imagined life-threatening incident.

Phobias – A very specific overwhelming but irrational feeling of fear about something that poses no real or immediate danger.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Or "PTSD" - Intense terror associated with a life threatening event from the past, with the person reliving that event through nightmares and flashbacks long after the event itself. This can be as much as many years after. This has been proven to be my most powerful trigger. Too much time with health issues, surgeries, procedures, NDE, pain, suffering, and extended hospital and ICU stays.

Sometimes these labels can make a person feel worse, but professionals love using them because it makes their life easier; giving them one thing less to worry about. However, it can leave a person thinking, “Gosh! I’ve got anxiety, OCD, intrusive thoughts ... how am I ever going to get better?”

It’s demoralizing, and as I said before, a person often experiences elements of several different anxiety categories, so why not forget the labels and simply call it anxiety. It’s just your own personally unique flavour of anxiety, that’s all, nothing more. And it is very convincing and powerful.

Permanent cure:
A person often seeks a permanent cure for anxiety and panic; considering it a real setback if they ever return. But if you’ve read this far I hope you’re beginning to understand why that just isn’t possible.

For example, it’s good to be wary of danger when crossing a busy road, or when climbing a ladder. It’s good to stay alert and focused when learning something new, because becoming too complacent before becoming proficient could land you in all sorts of trouble. 

It’s good to feel a little anxious in a new or unfamiliar situation, just in case there’s trouble ahead. Even when there’s no physical danger, there’s still potential for the pain of humiliation if you do something silly, so being cautious and alert makes it easier to notice all the little clues about how to act in that new situation.

So you see, in the grand scheme of things, you're really not alone. Anxiety and panic are a natural part of being human – just like sleeping or breathing – and at the right time are essential for your continued safety and well being. In fact the undue stress caused by seeing it as a setback or personal failure, only adds to that overall stress level that helps keep the whole cycle going.

What can be sought, however, are more appropriate responses to certain situations; better ways to manage your thoughts, and better ways to use your imagination. Don't fight the feeling. What you resist, will persist. Instead ... just say "hello old friend." I know you, and you can't have me. So do your best."

Relaxation – the antidote to anxiety:
It’s simply not possible to feel anxious and calm at the same time.

Calm and relaxed = Not anxious and panicky
So instead of trying to feel less anxious, it’s much easier to focus on feeling more relaxed. 

The subconscious mind – the part where fear and anxiety originate – works much better at providing what you do want rather than avoiding what you don’t; therefore it's best to concentrate on the state of mind you’d like to be in. Do that. It will help. Along with meditation, breathing exercises, and yoga.

Many people find self hypnosis helps them become more calm and relaxed, and feeling more calm and relaxed makes it easier to tolerate a little more uncertainty in your life. The mind works much better when it’s calmer, and it becomes easier to find solutions and see possibilities that you simply couldn’t think of when you were so tense and on edge. This also reduces anxiety. If you are one who suffers from this affliction, peace be with you. I know it well, and I wish you the best for a speedy exit and resolution.

Conscious of The Unconscious

Conscious of the Unconscious

We must learn to work with our unconscious, rather than trying to browbeat it into submission. Remember this important quote:

"The conscious mind determines the actions, 
the unconscious mind determines the reactions; 
and the reactions are just as important as the actions." 
~E. Stanley Jones

You may have come across what is called the "Huna perspective" on the unconscious mind (unihipili) and how the ancient Hawaiians worked with it to release negative emotions, in order to maintain their physical and emotional health. This perspective and process raises a number of questions about the unconscious that I would like to speak about in this article.

Theories about the unconscious vary widely within psychological circles, from the Freudian view that it’s a storehouse of socially unacceptable desires, traumatic memories, and painful emotions - to cognitive psychology’s perspective that the unconscious mind is simply a bundle of cognitive processes that we’re not aware of, not an entity in itself. Basically, boxes full of stuff.

The Truth is that it’s hard to prove any of these theories. Just as we know that the universe is vast, we know the unconscious mind is powerful ... and vast. And like our research into space, our knowledge of the unconscious mind is limited by the scientific equipment we have available to observe it at this moment in time. So we end up subscribing to theories we find to be most useful. For me, that means the perspectives of Huna, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) (link is external) and Jung.

To laypeople in Western cultures, the unconscious mind has been viewed as an enemy, a murky power that swooped in to sabotage our conscious desires. It became the scapegoat for every failure, mistake or unwanted reaction. More recently, people have come to think of the unconscious mind as a tool they can consciously use to get where they want to go. They bludgeon the mind with affirmations then wonder why they aren’t working. Too many cooks in the kitchen mixing recipes.

But Huna, NLP, and Jung, all treat the unconscious mind with a lot more respect. They believe that the unconscious has specific, important roles to play and duties to perform. They see the unconscious mind as having a Wisdom of its own that should be honoured. And they emphasize actually working with the unconscious region of mind rather than trying to browbeat it into submission or ignoring it.

You don’t need a PhD in psychology to work effectively with your unconscious, but you do need to understand a few basics. Here are a few of the aspects of the unconscious that are taught to students in Huna and NLP, and how they would apply to you.

The unconscious mind:

Preserves the body: 
One of its main objectives is the survival of your physical body. It will fight anything that appears to be a threat to that survival. So if you want to change a behavior more easily, show your unconscious how that behavior is hurting your body.

Runs the body: 
The unconscious handles all of your basic physical functions (breathing, heart rate, immune system, cell reproduction, etc.). Huna believes that the unconscious holds the blueprint of your body as it is now, and also the blueprint of your perfect health. Rather than telling the unconscious what perfect health looks like, try asking it what it knows and what you need for better health. Chances are that it's already in there ... as default programming by Source Energy.

Is like a 7-year old child: 
Like a young child, the unconscious likes to serve, needs very clear directions, and takes your instructions very literally. So if you say, “This job is a pain in the neck,” your unconscious will figure out a way to make sure that your neck hurts at work. Sounds silly in a way, but it is true and literal. The unconscious is also very “moral” in the way a young child is moral, which means based on the morality taught and accepted by your parents or surroundings. So if you were taught that “sin brings eternal guilt and punishment” your unconscious will still respond to that teaching even after your conscious mind has rejected it.

Communicates through emotion and symbols: 
To get your attention, the unconscious uses emotions. For example, if you suddenly feel afraid, your unconscious has detected (rightly or wrongly) that your survival is at risk. Stress hormones may be released, fight or flight ... anxiety or panic.

Stores and organizes memories: 
The unconscious decides where and how your memories are stored. It may hide certain memories (such as traumas) that have very strong negative emotions - until you are mature enough to process them ... consciously. When it senses that you are ready (whether you consciously think you are or not), it will bring them up so you can deal with them. Usually at the most importune times.

Does not process negatives: 
The unconscious absorbs pictures rather than words. All is graphic images. So if you say, “I don’t want to procrastinate,” the unconscious generates a picture of you procrastinating. Switching that picture from the negative to the positive takes an extra step. Better to tell your unconscious, “Let’s get to work." If you say "I will not have a bad day today, the mind will manifest a bad day." Instead, affirm that you desire a good day and that is what will manifest in form. It cannot won't, can't, shouldn't, wouldn't, because there is not way to create an image or a picture of you NOT doing something.

Makes associations and learns quickly:  
To protect you, the unconscious stays alert and tries to glean the lessons from each experience. For example, if you had a bad experience in school, your unconscious may choose to lump all of your learning experiences into the “this is not going to be fun” category. It will signal you with sweaty palms and anxiety whenever you attempt something new. But if you do well in sports, your unconscious will remember that “sports equals success” and you’ll feel positive and energized whenever physical activity comes up.

There’s much more to the unconscious mind ... but even just understanding the basics above will help you harness some of it's magnificent power.

The Body of Evidence

The Body of Evidence

Before I divulge what direction and what the intention of this article is, Let's take a look at a specific word:

What does evidence mean? 
• EVIDENCE (noun)
  The noun EVIDENCE has 3 senses:
1. your basis for belief or disbelief; knowledge on which to base belief
2. an indication that makes something evident
3. (law) all the means by which any alleged matter of fact whose truth is investigated at judicial trial is established or disproved
  EVIDENCE used as a noun is uncommon.

• EVIDENCE (verb)
  The verb EVIDENCE has 3 senses:
1. provide evidence for; stand as proof of; show by one's behavior, attitude, or external attributes
2. provide evidence for
3. give evidence
  EVIDENCE used as a verb is uncommon.

Based on the imaginary, and obviously self-imposed expertise of this word dictionary, we must come to our own quasi-intelligent conclusion ... especially since the dictionary decided to actually use the word "evidence" to describe what "evidence" means. In other words, according to the brilliant linguists and skilled University Graduates, evidence, means evidence. So, now that I have finished my rant ... lets move on. 

Trust me for a moment when I say that evidence is simply proof. Scientific (knowing) tangible experiential proof ... for ALL. Much in the same way as science, means proof knowledge. we're not talking phantasms and apparitions ... we're talking tangible, material, unquestionable proof ... easily witnessed by everyone, and not just you and the voice of an old Irishman calling you from the dark corner of the garage for another round. 

Now this can get interesting. Because if I tell you that black dogs do not exist in the state of Vermont, you would disbelieve me since it is highly likely that someone has seen a black dog in Vermont somewhere. The scientific probability that they do exist in Vermont is high, and once I see one ... experiential evidence offers the proof needed that there does in fact exist black dogs in Vermont. 

But ... if you set out to prove that there are actually no black dogs in Vermont ... it would be an impossibility. We cannot prove a negative. I would have to search the entire state, every county, city, wilderness, under every porch, inside every house and apartment, dams, reservoirs, wilderness, and would also have to go back the beginning of time itself, if it even had a beginning ... all of this to prove that there are no black dogs in Vermont. It would be impossible to prove a negative. Because to PROVE ... requires EVIDENCE. Once you find just ONE black dog in Vermont, search is over ... case closed. Go have lunch and a round of golf. 

One more example before I get to my point. You drop a highly toxic pill on the floor in the kitchen. Also meandering on the floor in the kitchen is your little dog. If he finds the pill and eats it, it could kill him. So on your knees you go. Flashlight in hand, searching for what ...? EVIDENCE. Proof that you will have possession of that pill. You know that it can't just disappear. You know that it confined to this universe in the same way that all things that ever were and all things that ever will be are also confined here. Where else would they go? The past is here, the future is here ... all waiting on your thoughts and actions. All is mind. So ... you just KNOW that pill is here. 

You won't walk away and say "screw-it" ... first and foremost because of the dog's potential health hazard, but also because you KNOW it's here. It must be, therefore it is. There is not even a sliver of a doubt. There ... in the  corner ... under the leg of the chair is that little pill. You grab it up ... and now you have peace. Problem is solved. No worries, no concerns, and it's over. Why? BECAUSE NOW YOU HAVE EVIDENCE. Proof of the pill, it's existence, and your current condition of having it in your possession. The same would go for that bee you thought came into your car window. Right after you see it fly out the other window ... your fear alarm turns off. You got your evidence. No more fear or concern.

Now we get to the major point of this article. Proof. And the comfort and peace that it brings. Even in  horrible situations. If a child has been abducted and has been missing for a while, fear looms and people dread the sometimes inescapable truth that the child has been murdered. But in order to know this, to have this understanding and final acceptance, there MUST be a body. As unimaginable as it may be for a parent to lose a child to the hands of an evil killer, but at least when the "body of evidence" is found, it's over. There is now PROOF. The grieving, and the mourning, and the final plans all get underway. The search for the killer progresses, and with serious detective work and forensics, we all hope the killer is found, and punished for his crime. This is his karma. 

But what it this scenario doesn't play out this way? What if the child is never found? What if the body is never found? There can be no closure ... no conclusive PROOF or EVIDENCE of murder, abuse, or evil wrongdoing. The evidence is everything. Not circumstantial evidence or hearsay could ever settle a matter, in or out of court ... but cold, hard, factual, and provable experiential evidence for ALL to see. All else ... is opinion, not fact. Subjective vs. Objective. 

The parents of the child may never find out if they're child has been injured, abducted, sold, taken into a new home illegally, abused, murdered ... nothing. They may never, ever know ... for the rest of this live that they may suffer each day here and now. There is rarely peace. Often, there is irreparable psychological damage, medications, institutionalizations, divorces, and sometimes a parent will commit suicide never being able to be released from the suffering and unknowingness of the whereabouts of their child. 

No let's go where you expected me to go if you know me by now. Religion, faith, and higher powers. I'm going to jump right into the deep end by saying that there is no PROOF or EVIDENCE that there ever existed a Godman named Jesus Christ who walked the hills of the Galilee outside of the Bible stories. Roman records know of no Jesus. Secular history knows of no Jesus. The Jesus Christ taught in the churches of modern Christianity, is a conglomerate entity of multiple Saviour figures based solely upon Celestial Theological Cosmogony. Basically, the movements of the heavenly bodies and the seasonal effects that the Sun and the Planets have upon our Earth and Earthly lives. 

This conglomerate Saviour of Iesous Christos (Greek), or Iseus Chrestus (Latin) is interlaced with Crios of the Druids, Joshua, Buddha, Krishna, Osiris, Horus, Odysseus, Attis, Apollonius, Romulus, Dionysus, Mithras, Heracles, Glycon, Zoroaster, Quatzacoatl, and a myriad of so many other Saviour Godmen of ancient civilizations such as Kemet/Egypt, Greece, Persia, Asia, Sumeria, and numerous other geographic locations and civilizations. 

But ... now the fascinating part. Somehow, without Google and Yahoo, the worldwide similarities of the spiritual Truths taught by all these myths are at their very foundation ... nearly identical. Choose any location, and region, and civilization, and the deeper revelational teachings are all based on Ancient Pagan Wisdom. The idea that WE are God ... collectively. The concept is very simple. If everything came from one point of origin, then each thing has an essence of that original thing still in it. It is our Divine Spark of God within mankind's superconsciousness ... tying us all together as One. As God. The miracles, signs, and wonders of Jesus were allegory, metaphor, parables and myth. These are surface stories, true or not but irrelevant, with the deeper lessons and Truths beneath the layers of the surface stories. 

The birth of the begotten of God, the miracles, the illumination, the crucifixion, death, resurrection, and ascension ... Armageddon, the Tribulation, the Second Coming ... are all to take place WITHIN us spiritually. The Lake of Fire, Heaven and Hell, all metaphors for the Apocalyse - which means unveiling of something hidden - not the end of the world with real horsemen and battles  with bloodshed knee-deep in the battlefields. Theses things are OUR history, the story of our spiritual lives. Not out there somewhere historically or literally. 

You think that a literal Jesus died on a literal cross and resurrected his dead flesh after three days of rigor-mortis and blood draining and a pierced heart and lungs only to walk around and have dinner with his Apostles? 

Then I say ... prove it. Present evidence ... OUTSIDE of the Bible and church records and fathers and founders of the faith. Evidence and proof that will hold up in a court of law, and I will look at it. Otherwise, it remains in the category of myth, hearsay, circumstantial, blind faith, and spiritual and emotional hope. But there is NO evidence. There is NO proof. There is no Second Coming, Rapture of the Saints, 7 year Tribulation, Coming in The Clouds to collect all the dead and living believers. 

There are deep spiritual Truths to be learned from the esoteric myths hidden within the stories ... from all loving and caring religions. But other than that, it's time we give up on Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Superman, and Jesus. In fact, any and all world religions who have at their roots a Saviour figure who had not led the world into peace, unity, and harmony ... should have everything turned into a museum. Religion taken literally and historically has destroyed civilization and set back human progress for more than 2,000 years.

The Wind of The Genesis Creation Story

The Wind of The Genesis Creation Story

In the beginning ... it's all there. All the allegory, metaphor, myth, reality, and whatever it is that speaks to the heart of man as to how everything got here and why ... except for one thing ... sort of. You can see Adam (adamah/clay) and Eve (Chawwah/breath/live) as real people, or as I do ... metaphor. It makes no difference to this ancient message from many civilizations. 

Let's first look at Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 specifically:

1 - In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 - The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.

So now ... a bit of a metaphysical rendering ... just bear with me on this for a moment. I do have a point to reach.

"In the beginning (at the point of origin) God (Source Energy) created the heavens (Spirit/unseen) and the earth (matter/seen). The earth (matter) was without form (not material yet) and void (blank canvas/the uncreated nothingness that was the Source of everything created), and darkness was over the surface of the deep (unaware/lacking consciousness or awareness), and the Spirit (PNEUMA/RUACH) of God (the power to give life) was moving over the surface emanating from the void) of the waters (Source of all life)."

Keep in mind since the stars and sun came later, the term spoken of "and then there was light" refers to the light that is consciousness. Photon energy. What we consist of. And also keep in Mind that if God/Source is creating stuff ... then the stuff he is creating is made out of God Stuff since there is nothing else. This would mean that everything that exists today is made out of God Stuff. Everything. It's like God Depot. This means you and I and the chair you're sitting in are made out of God/Source.

So now back to the stuff being created. Plants, firmament, animals, people, etc. - from a ... void. Well, first we must ask how can anything come from a void, which is "nothing?" Science and religion have fought over this for 2,000+ years. Science says you can't get something from nothing, and religion says there wasn't nothing, there was God. But, Biblically speaking, God says there was nothingness ... void. Greek word: Cosmos, chaos, vast, empty, null, gaping, abyss, etc. As you can see ... a multifaceted word with multiple meanings. 

As a Greek, I can tell you that when we call someone a "voide" it means they are empty. basically, a shell with no content ... clueless. It is used in a derogatory manner these days. But the void is the most amazing of all. Like ZERO is the most important number in math. Zero doesn't mean nothing, it has mathematical value and as such holds together the entirety of Math, which is the only absolute Truth known to the Universe. Even the code of all computers systems in the words is nothing more than one's and zero's. 

So clearly, the Book of Genesis, hints that there were elements already in existence that need not be "created." The most important being "Pneuma/Ruach" ... Spirit, breath, wind, air. This would be life-force. This Pneuma or Spirit Air / Ether (Aether) meaning:

1 - the upper, pure, bright air; ether; the heavens (Ouranos)
2 - the air or sky; light of day (Ouranos, Phota)
3 - the upper world, the earth being the lower world. (As above, so below)
4 - the brightness or ethereal (otherworldly/spiritual) matter surrounding a deity

The Strong's Biblical Concordance gives is the following information on the word Pneuma:

Strong's Concordance word #4151. "PNEUMA"
pneuma: wind, spirit
Original Word: πνεῦμα, ατος, τό
Part of Speech: Noun, Neuter
Transliteration: pneuma
Phonetic Spelling: (pnyoo'-mah) (or pnevmah)
Short Definition: wind, breath, spirit
Definition: wind, breath, spirit.

4151 pneúma – properly, spirit (Spirit), wind, or breath. The most frequent meaning (translation) of 4151 (pneúma) in the NT is "spirit" ("Spirit"). Only the context however determines which sense(s) is meant.

Any of the above renderings (spirit-Spirit, wind, breath) of 4151 (pneúma) is always theoretically possible (spirit, Spirit, wind, breath). But when the attributive adjective ("holy") is used, it always refers to the Holy Spirit. "Spirit" ("spirit") is by far the most common translation (application) of 4151 (pneúma). This is done by adding the Greek word "Hagios" meaning holy. See Strong's word #40. 

The Hebrew counterpart (rûach) has the same range of meaning as 4151 (pneúma), i.e. it likewise can refer to spirit/Spirit, wind, or breath.]

So to keep this from rambling on for a very long time, in the book of Genesis (the book of creation/birth) - Genesis is Greek for descent, to be born, birth, beginning, to generate, and in Hebrew the word is beresheth - and BEFORE anything was created, there pre-existed a formless void of Spirit. This was the point of origin for all material existence to be brought forth into manifestation. Total unbounded, and unlimited potentiality. 

We are co-creators in this universe. We set the intent, the cause, and bring forth the effect. We are NOT individuals, but an essential part of an entire Matrix of conscious fiber that weaves throughout the universe and multiverses unseen by the human eye, yet projecting the image onto the screen from within us through the eye. We are "the light of the world." There is no "other" as we are all one, and that ONE is resident within the mind of the All ... the mind of God/Source. 

The 2 book of John says "as Jesus is, so are we in this world." Jesus represents man and his spiritual potential to recognize within, the spark of God/Source, and become the Christ. We are the begotten of God. ALL of mankind. Jesus was quoted as saying "you will do greater things than I." Jesus said he does nothing unless it comes from the Father. He asked who is my Mother, my brothers and sisters? SPIRIT is Father God/Source ... the energy of all there is. MATTER is Mother of all living. Eve, Mary, Miriam, MR ... in essence ... Father and Mother created the child. WE are that child. 

There is so much more, but I will stop with this final statement. God/Source experiences life in a material world (lower vibrational energy) with us, through us, and AS US. As we grow with experience, so does the Almighty. Choose wisely your thoughts and actions. The universe depends on it. You matter as much in this Matrix of consciousness as everyone else. The past has passed, the future doesn't exists until we collectively create it, and all that ever is, was, and will be is right NOW. 

Every material object that we create has always existed. All we do is re-arrange the materials that have always been here. We cannot make dirt, or water, but we can mix it and bring forth the mud of it's combination. We are ALL equal and key to the co-creation of the future. We choose right from wrong. Choose wisely. All you will ever need is already here. Understand this secret from the Wisdom of the Ages and you will succeed and prosper ... physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Follow the 7 Universal Laws of Hermes, the Immutable Laws of the Universe ... and you shall always benefit in this game of life.

Subjective Versus Objective

Objective Versus Subjective

SUB-jective information, or writing ... is based on "personal" opinions, interpretations, points of view, emotions and judgment. It is often considered ill-suited for scenarios like news reporting or decision making in business or politics. OB-jective information or analysis, is "fact-based," measurable and observable.

So what is an easy way to remember these very important differences? In my mind, it has always been confusing. It's kind of like subject and object. An object can be a subject but can a subject be an object? You see what I'm talking about. It can be confusing at times, right?

SUB-JECTIVE - is basically an opinion. And everybody has one. It will not hold up in a court of law, nor will everyone agree with it. There is no evidentiary proof of what is emotionally interpreted and personally opinionated. 

OB-JECTIVE - is basically a fact. It is not subject to opinion. And it is admissible in court. Whether you choose to believe it or not is your choice, but fact is fact. Generally, there must also be evidentiary proof of this fact. 

So, now let's try and make it easier still. 

SUB-JECTIVE - Personal Opinion.
OB-JECTIVE - Verifiable Fact. 

So, in a basic sense, opinion versus fact. Now, how to make it even easier for people like me who can recite the names of all the Roman Emperors, and heroes of Greek Mythology but can never plug in a USB correctly ... ever.  

Perhaps some etymology (word origins study) might help. 

Subjective: Existing in the mind as a personal opinion.

Objective: Impersonal, unbiased, and factual.

Subjective claims cannot be proved true or false by any generally accepted criteria. Subjective claims often express opinions, preferences, values, feelings, and judgments. Even though they may involve facts, they do not make factual (provable) claims, and therefore they are, in a sense, neither true nor false in the same way an objective claim is true or false. They are outside the realm of what is verifiable.

A subjective point of view is biased, because it is either not the complete picture or it is merely a viewpoint or expression of feelings or opinion. 

An objective claim is a statement about a factual matter-one that can be proved true or false. For factual matters there exist widely recognized criteria and methods to determine whether a claim is true or false. 

Now forget using the words subject and object. It just makes things messier. We are actually looking for a shortcut that will separate something SUBJECTIVE, and something OBJECTIVE.

This seems to work for me. Hopefully, it may work for you as well:

SUBJECTIVE - SUB-conscious opinion.

OBJECTIVE - OB-servable Truth. OB-vious. 

One closing thought. You may be saying "but sometimes my opinion (subjective) can be proven to be true." Then it is no longer subjective, but transmutes to being objective once proven. This is the same way in which blind faith, can be eradicated by knowingness. 

For example, if I told you I had a flashlight in my glovebox, and you had not seen inside my glovebox, you would have to choose  via blind faith in order to belief me ... or not. If you choose to believe me, you have accepted a belief that may or may not be true based solely on being told of it. But the moment I reach into my glovebox and SHOW you my flashlight - evidence - you now KNOW that what I said was true and your blind faith has been shattered ... no longer needed ... no longer necessary. So you see, evidential knowledge displaces the practice and purpose for blind faith. 

Sometime we say and believe things that are nothing more than regurgitating what we have heard from someone else ... "hearsay" is what it is called. Sometimes it's gossip. And it is inadmissible in court for good reason. Because if you can't prove it to be true, then it remains nothing more than opinion ... until proven true or false. Sometimes, people don't believe what they read ... but instead ... read what they believe. Remember the boy who cried "wolf" and nobody saw one? That was subjective. But ... one day, the boy cried "wolf" and this time the wolf showed up for everyone to see. That was objective ... and a very good time to run. I hope this has helped.
