LOVE MANIFESTED IN ICE CRYSTALS

Below is the report taken from professor Emoto in Yokohama.  These photo have been around for decades.  When You look at them, remember 60% of your body is water.  I often stop before using an ugly word or emote a  bad feeling.  I wonder what my water molecules will look like.  Granted these are frozen flakes.  Our body water is at 98 to 99 degrees.  Are these ugly designs penetrating the osmotic part of our bodies?

Why take the chance?

Masaru Emoto was born in Yokohama, Japan in July 1943 and a graduate of the Yokohama Municipal University’s department of humanities and sciences with a focus on International Relations. In 1986 he established the IHM Corporation in Tokyo. In October of 1992 he received certification from the Open International University as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine. Subsequently he was introduced to the concept of micro cluster water in the US and Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology. The quest thus began to discover the mystery of water.

He undertook extensive research of water around the planet not so much as a scientific researcher, but more from the perspective of an original thinker. At length he realized that it was in the frozen crystal form that water showed us its true nature through. He has gained worldwide acclaim through his groundbreaking research and discovery that water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness.

He is the author of the best-selling books Messages from Water, The Hidden Messages in Water, and The True Power of Water. He is a long-time advocate for peace in relation to water. He is currently the head of the I.H.M.General Research Institute and President Emeritus of the International Water for Life Foundation, a Not for Profit Organization.

Mr. Emoto has been visually documenting these molecular changes in water by means of his photographic techniques. He freezes droplets of water and then examines them under a dark field microscope that has photographic capabilities.

Some examples from his works include:

Water from clear mountain springs and streams had beautifully formed crystalline structures, while the crystals of polluted or stagnant water were deformed and distorted.

Distilled water exposed to classical music took delicate, symmetrical crystalline shapes.

When the words “thank you” were taped to a bottle of distilled water, the frozen crystals had a similar shape to the crystals formed by water that had been exposed to Bach’s “Goldberg Variations”- music composed out of gratitude to the man it was named for.

When water samples were bombarded with heavy metal music or labeled with negative words, or when negative thoughts and emotions were focused intentionally upon them, such as “Adolf Hitler”, the water did not form crystals at all and displayed chaotic, fragmented structures.

When water was treated with aromatic floral oils, the water crystals tended to mimic the shape of the original flower.

Sometimes, when we cannot see the immediate results of our affirmations and or prayers, we think we have failed. But, as we learn through Masaru Emoto’s photographs, that thought of failure itself becomes represented in the physical objects that surround us. Now that we have seen this, perhaps we can begin to realize that even when immediate results are invisible to the unaided human eye, they are still there. When we love our own bodies, they respond. When we send our love to the Earth, she responds.

For our own bodies at birth are more than 60 percent water, and the percentage of water in our bodies remains high throughout life (depending upon weight and body type). The earth’s surface is more than 60 percent water as well. And now we have seen before our eyes that water is far from inanimate, but is actually alive and responsive to our every thought and emotion. Perhaps, having seen this, we can begin to really understand the awesome power that we possess, through choosing our thoughts and intentions, to heal ourselves and the earth. If only we believe.

Whether you participate in global meditations, or simply do this inner work in the quiet of your own loving mind and heart — we can heal the body of our earth and recreate a clear, pristine world to hand down to our children for seven generations.

THE VERB: TO LOVE REVISITED

Love

The opposite of love is not Hate rather Apathy ~ Ace Andres

(Apathy is the lack of emotions)

 

In my first go around with the definition of The Verb: “To Love”, I went into the roots of the word.  We discussed the 3 forms of love, Eros, (sex) Philia (brotherly) Agape (huh?)

 

Agape needs to be examined closer and I’ll try to keep it short. (I promise). Agape is the Love of mankind.  Imagine showing concern and love for someone you loath.  This is why we are instructed not to hate.  Hate, although it is an emotion, interferes with your ability to forgive and ultimately show love for your enemy.

Jesus said that it was easy to love those who love you. But what virtue exist in that?

I would presume with my finite pea brain that what Christ meant when he said: “Love your neighbor as yourself”, (In the parable of the Good Samaritan) He meant that if you show compassion for a stranger, you have become their neighbor. (Luke 10:25) If a stranger wants nothing to do with you, they are not your neighbor. Pray for them regardless.

Recently, I witnessed the death of a biker that passed me while I was going 4MPH on the freeway and he was going about 50 to 60. I saw a flash of a biker wearing a blue T-shirt.  In my mind (I know I wrote about this yesterday) I said to myself: “He’s going to kill himself”.  Less than a minute later I saw his lifeless body on the road and what was left of his motorcycle.  All I could do was pray for him.  In retrospect, had I shown love and compassion, and been a neighbor; I would have prayed for him as he flew by my driver’s door. (Not pass judgment on him) That is Agape love.  I failed.

Do you see how I’m thinking? I’m nowhere near the vicinity of perfect.  But I’m learning. When I see ad hominem attacks on politicians, I have to refrain from getting involved.  I need to remind myself to take the higher road.  Look for the opportunity to show agape love.

I want to be the Good Samaritan.

THE 3 STAGES OF LIFE

3 Stages

 

If you’re lucky; you’ll get to experience the 3 stages of life.

 

  1. The Developmental stage. (birth to 21)
  2. The Productive stage (22 to 60)
  3. The Tertiary stage or the remainder of your life.

 

The developmental stage is perhaps the most important. Your life grid is determined by everyone you see, hear and meet.  In many cases, the best examples are not necessarily your parents.  But beware, should you have less than great examples for parents, they will have a direct or counter effect on your life.  Your conscience will decide.

 

If you have the parents of the year, you’re a lucky kid. You will know right from wrong and have seen it practiced.  Instead of spoiling you with the latest toys to show their concern, they will fund a college account.  Your parents will understand the need to help you through the learning process so you will get good enough grades AND understand the importance of a continued education.  If you’re truly lucky your parents will help you find your inner voice or passion.

 

Keep in mind, the above paragraph is like a hole in one, a 300 game in bowling, hitting for the cycle in Baseball or pitching a perfect game. Parents are the same as you and I.  They are humans trying to make their way through the jungle of life.  We are all different and most of us will not hear our parents advice (out of teen rebellion) or in odd counter-intuitive conditions, the child’s mind, which has been programmed by a church service or really good neighbors or perhaps by God on the other side, is able to see the parent’s wrongful behavior and say: “When I’m older, I’m not going to ….etc.”.

The good or bad part of the developmental stage is that it has a direct/proportional effect on your productive stage.

 

YOUR PRODUCTIVE STAGE

The 80/20 rule which you have heard thru-out your life is best described in your productive stage. What is the 80/20 rule?  In business it means that 80% of your profit comes from 20% of your customers, or certain sales, or certain district stores. Why does Christmas come sooner and sooner each year?  80% of a stores profits come during the holiday season.  Roughly 20% of the fiscal year.

 

In your productive stage of life (22 to 60) what you believe, do and say comes from 80% of what you see during your developmental stage, and 20% of what you are taught or told during the same time period. Sadly, what happens to you during your developmental years can lead to serious unintended consequences.  If you grow up in a liberal house hold where sex is looked upon without consequences (Like social disease or procreation) you will not even consider the unintended consequences of your sexual actions.  On the other hand if you are brought up in a “Leave it to Beaver” household, sex epitomizes the manifestation of spiritual unity. (Yeah think about that for a while).  It is something that you treat with respect and is held as something sacred.  It means much more than a penis and a vagina.

 

THE TERTIARY STAGE

This is the stage of your life when you accept that your physical gas tank is getting low. Your odometer has turned over. (Showing my age).  You realize that the above stages are BS as described.  You understand the term “Outlier”. (A statistical observation that is markedly different in value from the others of the sample).  During your “golden years” you have two choices.  Wait to die or plan how to go down making a statement.  Waiting to die is probably the quickest way to die.  (And there are so many ways your God can bring you home). But if you have a mission; it will stimulate the parts of your brain that keep your vital organs or nerves functioning.

Look at the Reverend Billy Graham. He has been quoted as saying that he is ready for God to bring him home. I don’t agree with his dogma, but he’s 97 years old. (Let me add that I do not question his Christianity) I frequently ask myself why God doesn’t bring him home. I believe that your most important work can be done after 60 if you are inspired to do so.  At that age, you’ve had time to quit blaming your upbringing.  You’ve accepted the mistakes you made during your productive years and you realize that your accomplishments mean little in the overall “Big Picture”.

Something you discover after the rollercoaster comes back to the station is the existence of your spiritual life. It’s something that’s been in you since you became you.  I don’t know if you are born with a spirit or if it sprouts during the years of life that you can’t remember. (Less than 4 years of age).

 

Once you accept the existence of your spiritual life, the morality aspect of your life comes into clearer focus. Fear of God turns into respect for God.  Respect for God turns into Love for God.  Perhaps in the end, that is why we were given this very short human experience.

It’s just my 2 cents. Live each day as if it’s your last.  I’ve been alive to see Billy Graham live to the age of 97. (He’s still going) Mother Theresa only made it to 87 but she also spent a great deal of her life in 3rd world cultures.

I was alive in 1959 when Ritchie Valens died at the age of 17. To this day his songs as well as Buddy Holly’s are recorded by people like myself and others.

Remember this: “If you get to heaven there is only one thing that you cannot do in heaven that you can on this spinning ball, lead spirits to God.

Maybe that’s why God keeps Billy Graham around?

BALANCE LIFE & DEATH

YinYang

Scales

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction ~ Isaac Newton

 

Life is a game of balance that is focused on the 4 major aspects of your life

 

  1. The Physical
  2. The Emotional
  3. The Education
  4. The Spiritual

 

The Physical condition gets the most attention because if you’re fat it shows. If you are unclean it smells.  If you are not solid it effects the other 3 aspects of your life.  There are two ways to establish your physical condition.  A healthy diet and exercise.  The “Key” to managing those two aspects is dependent on the other three aspects.

 

When our emotions are out of balance we tend to over eat or not eat at all. If the conditions are unsustainable; enter drugs and alcohol.  These will destroy your physical condition and make you sick.

 

When our educational condition becomes clouded, we do not make smart choices. We allow our vices to affect our physical condition.  We know a glass of red wine has 400 calories but by our third glass, who cares?  If not properly educated you will pay a non-monetary price for eating that bacon wrapped pizza.

 

When we neglect our spiritual properties; we stray from caring about right from wrong. See above abuses which also arise from not being spiritually grounded.

 

The Emotional Condition

 

Again, the other three aspects of life affect your emotions. If you are physically undesirable, you will become insecure.  Insecurity leads to poor choices (education) and neglect of your spiritual existence.

 

The Education Condition

 

The more educated you are in this world, the more you are aware of. Why? Because you know the cause and effect behind those decisions.  Educated people think three dimensionally.  This allows them to avoid or at least minimalize unintended consequences.  We gather knowledge in the classroom but more so by experience.  The latter (although more memorable) is less forgiving.  If your Wechsler (I.Q.) score is under 100; life might be tough. It could mean the difference between “hard” work and “smart” work.

 

The Spiritual Condition

 

I’m not referring to your dogma or religious beliefs, but if you are aware of the existence of a part of your person which is connected to another dimension you are lucky to be scrapping the surface of spirituality. Your spiritual life is based on an understanding of that which cannot be defined.  It helps you understand right from wrong.  It is your foundation for choosing righteousness over evil.  It is the bond that is responsible for the phenomena called love.  The opposite of love is not hate.  It is apathy.  It takes feelings to hate someone or something, feelings are generated by your spiritual belief system.  You can measure your spirituality by your body’s vibration. (Hz).  Low vibrational humans occupy our prisons or haven’t been caught yet.  Low vibrational humans are attracted to the darkness of life.  Unlike “high” vibrational humans, low vibrational humans are dark.  In religious literature, one of the seven sins is “Sloth”.  This another word for laziness.  As sentient creatures we can only look to the ancient writings or listen to our inner voice which I’ll refer to as a conscience.  The low vibrational spirits have learned to ignore their conscience.  High vibrational spirits go through life by following their consciences and the writings of those who claimed to have followed deities.  (God)

 

If there are any unbalances in your life; let it be an excess in your spiritual life as it is the only thing that connects you to the next dimension. Some say we all have invisible silver cords that attach our spirits to the “other side”.  When we die, those silver cords are severed and our spirits are collected in another place.  Your spiritual life is the most important aspect of your life.

Rigby

If your physical life is not in Olympic balance, you will die sooner; however we will all die a physical death. If we let our emotions guide our life, we will make poor, sometimes regretful decisions but the worst thing that will happen is that it will lead to apathy and affect your spiritual belief system.

 

Neglecting the educational condition of your life will make you a target. You will often make poor choices.  Conversely, the over educated often does so at the cost of their social skills.  The highly educated and highly uneducated do so at the cost of their emotional condition.  Both can lead to a life of insecurity.  Without the spirit keeping your life in balance, you will be the one known as the “Know it all” or the “Idiot”.  But keep in mind, Harvard Graduates have ruined the United States while some of America’s greatest Heroes were high school drop outs.

 

Summary:

 

Your spirit is the only thing you take with you when you go. Prioritize it!  A good heart, mind and brain will help you develop that spirit.  But excess and neglect tend to ruin almost everything earthly.  Fear not the physical death, but fear today the suggestion of a spiritual death.

 

 

THERE IS NO PAST OR FUTURE

Time

 

“Time is simply a tool invented by man to measure the progress of man”.

 

Let me start this post by saying that I’ve been “not well” since the end of the Holiday season. I was on a medication that was tearing my body apart.  It was literally making my muscles tear or “Inflame” my ligaments.  I was unable to walk twice for a period of 3 days each and spent most of the last month in bed and when I could walk, I did not have the motivation to write.

 

Let me give it a try. So rather than talk about relationships or politics, I’ve decided to pick something easy like Theoretical Physics.  In 1970 (or there abouts) I was in one of many automobile accidents.  My father was driving and I was in the front passenger seat.  Neither of us saw it coming until this 56 Buick came barreling into the wheel well just two feet in front of me.  At that moment……….. Time slowed down to a Nano-second crawl. I recall in slow motion my father losing control of the steering wheel and flying towards the point of impact.  (I use to make great catches at shortstop, but this probably my greatest catch ever) I caught my dad, who weighed about 160 pounds, and put him back behind the steering wheel.  He outweighed me by about 40 pounds.  I was in my early teens.  When we returned to “real time”, the next thing I saw was our car heading towards a Stop sign and the stop sign flying towards our wind shield/screen.

 

In 1926 Albert Einstein wrote an article on space-time. His claim was that time was woven in to the fabric of space. Have you ever wondered how “Time flies” when you’re ignoring it?  Have you ever noticed how time stands still when you’re waiting in line to have your motor registered?  I believe time is more subjective than objective.

 

Nobody really knows what time it is.

 

What inspired me to talk about something I’m completely unqualified to talk about? I did study a little bit of Bio-Physics at Stanford University, but I do not have a formal background in Physics.  I majored in Business Administration so I could be a smarter musician.

 

What bothered me is how melancholy we get when we think about “The past” aka “The good old days”. I got an email from a company that has made a fortune out of nostalgia.  It’s an online website that connects you with your high school classmates. We find some sort of satisfaction in reliving in our minds what we once experienced.

 

Let me ask you this one question. Yes we all go through biological changes.  You can call it aging or, you can call it biological changes.  Does time change us; or do we change ourselves.  What slowed down my POV in that car crash?  Was is an enzyme in my brain allowing me to take note of every Nano-second of action?  Or was my brain aware of the entire event happening? (And What was responsible for that?)

 

I’m convinced Space-time is as real as our imagination. Time is a motivator. How does one measure motivation?

 

Time is like being on a tread mill. You go nowhere, but your body changes. The earth spins like a treadmill and just as sweat drips off our body, we go through a series of changing events.  Why is a life “Time” for a human roughly 70 years while a fly lives 3 days?  What we call time is strictly an abstract term.  Next episode will be about parallel universes.  Naw just kidding.

********
I need to apologize to my higher power which I will openly refer to as God.  In my post I said “Time” does not heal, but people heal themselves.  I stand grossly mistaken.  God heals our bodies and our minds.  God supplies the healing tools for us to use to heal with.  Time does not heal; God heals.

HEAVEN OR HELL?

Heaven or Hell

(I have no Idea what the ether looks like or I can’t remember)

Many “believers” have a set of rules and a central figure in the church (Pastor, Preacher, Minister etc…) who is responsible for processing these rules so that the common human can understand them.

 

We are lucky that much of what was said in the beginning of most “religions” were written down.  The Christian faith and its’ many off-springs all seem to have their own take on the writings, known as the dead sea scrolls that were found preserved in  caves on the west Bank of the Jordan River, between 1946 and 1956.

 

But in the writings found by the author Matthew, he quotes Jesus as saying that on Judgment day (Let me paraphrase) Many pseudo-believers who did good things in Christ’s name will come to Christ for judgment and will be told: “depart from me you who practice lawlessness for I never knew you”.

 

I ask: “What does it take to get Christ to know me”? (In a positive way).

 

You can’t get to know someone until you communicate with them.  You can’t communicate with someone until you acknowledge them.  This is difficult if you can’t see them, isn’t it?  So we’re called on to use a non-tangible gift we’ve been given called faith.  Faith is the belief in the existence of something that you cannot see, smell, feel, taste or touch. Faith is a tool of the spirit!

 

A good example is gas. (Meaning vapors)  I’ve been in tactical training and was led into a room with a gas mask on.  I couldn’t see the gas. It just seemed hot being in a sealed room in what they call Indian summer. (September).  I was ordered to remove my mask.  That is when I realized that what you can’t see is as real as that which you can see.

 

Jesus said he would always be there for us until the end of time.  When we die, we will take off our masks.  Until then, wear your mask and know that a greater power exist that is inviting conversation. Instead of tear gas, it is your God, your source energy, your maker.

 

Why?

 

Because Christ said: “Depart from me for I never knew you”.  Do you understand the critical importance of the last four words?  Jesus is saying that on Judgment day, he must know you or you’ll get shown the door. (Or the darkness)

 

The apostle Paul once said in a letter to the Philippians (1:21) that “For me; to live is Christ and to die is gain”. Paul knew Christ although he never met him in the physical body.  It’s kind of like you and I.  Paul was blinded by a light and Jesus spoke to Paul (who was going by the name Saul) Paul only had audible proof of this entity we call Jesus.  Paul used to persecute Christians.  So Jesus blinded him and asked him: “Paul why do you persecute me”?  Then He told Paul where to go to get his vision back.  This made a believer out of Paul.

 

I think sometimes it takes a miracle for us to use our faith to confirm the existence of God.  Thomas Jefferson once said: Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, He must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear“.  I might add, when doing this, keep an open mind, but not so open you trip over your brain.

 

If you ask Jesus to show you a sign; you will get one. (But only if you really want one)  But just as you wouldn’t go up to any stranger who claims to be someone important, you wouldn’t approach them and say: “Prove to me that you are Warren Buffet”.   You would ask from a point of humility: “Sir are you Warren Buffet the millionaire”?  If you’re lucky he would show you his driver’s license.  (If he didn’t have his bodyguards throw you in the bushes)

 

The key to establishing a relationship with the Holy Trinity is to put forth an effort to understand the Trinity.  The more interest you show in wanting to know Jesus, the more Jesus will notice you.  In time Jesus will throw you a bone. Keep in mind, when doing this; you should try and do it from the spiritual realm of your existence. (And a humble approach)  This is why professors make lousy believers.

 

This is why Christ said it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.  That statement had nothing to do with money or animals but everything to do with understanding the condition or attitude of your spiritual existence.  When you die, all that will remain of you will be the energy that comprised your spirit and a legacy of some sort.  What matters is your spirit.  It’s your eternal existence.

 

If you are more concerned when the clock runs out about your portfolio in the stock market than you are about your relationship with Christ in the afterlife, that camel will start to get mighty small or the needle eye will get quite large.  You get the idea.

 

There are no millionaires in heaven and there are no homeless in heaven.  If your spirit is welcomed in heaven, you will look back on this pathetic physical life and shake your head.

You’ll know when you know Christ.  When someone asks: “Why are you a Christian”? Your answer will not be because I fear Hell.  It should be quite the opposite.  It should be: “Because Christ has been the only true meaningful and reliable relationship I could count on in my physical life”.   If you have that attitude and believe it, you are on the right track.

 

THE JOURNEY PART 2

JesusBaptism

If you want to learn what your earthly experience is about, I strongly suggest reading the Old Testament Book Ecclesiastes which was written by King Solomon the son of King David. (As in David and Goliath or David and Bathsheba or David, a man after God’s heart) I believe King David to be the example of what a human can hope to become. Another human would be Jesus the Christ or Messiah. Unlike Christ, King David was not of the divine Trinity. He was a man that was not exempt from sin; but he knew God and accepted the consequences of his sins. David longed to be a Godly man, but his human circumstances lets us know that even the most righteous amongst humans is not immune to the temptations of Satan. As a human, the young David showed faith by saying: “Hey, I’m not going to sit and let that Philistine with a pituitary glandular problem talk trash about my God”. David was a kid and he stood up to the Philistine Warrior who “weighed in” at an estimated at 9’6″. (nine feet and six inches tall) The kid took on the challenge while King Saul cowardly “lead from behind”.

King Solomon on the other hand is the son of the Giant slayer. He inherits David’s kingdom and also is credited with building the Temple. In his book, Solomon talks about everything he did to get a buzz. From Concubines (The King’s girl toys) to conquering other armies. And what does Solomon have to say about his accomplishments? In short: “The one who dies with the most toys is………dead”. He goes on to say that someone (like him) will come along that did not build the temple and will not appreciate it either. In the New American Standard version of the Bible (The same as the King James minus the “Thees” and “Thous” uses the term “Vanities”. Solomon says “All is Vanity” in the watered down “Good News” version, it uses the phrase “Chasing the wind”. As in: “All is useless, like chasing the wind”. The book Ecclesiates is about your purpose on earth. He surmizes that in the end, your relationship with God is all that matters. Is this like having a mother that takes pre-natal vitamins when she is pregnant with you? Is this like learning at a young age to take notes in class rather than pass notes? Is this like trying to understand and learn from your homework than just “getting it done”?

 

At a point in your life where you finally make the mountain curve, you realize that looks, health and eventually wealth are “fleeting”. Even the attractive sins lose their magnetism. If not you continue to go off the side of the mountain and in doing so, take others with you. I honestly believe that this is a result of tuning out your higher vibration. (AKA wisdom)

 

There are two types of people. Those who only believe what they can see and touch and those who realize that a creator that can make a system that works so perfectly would not let the story end with His creation that shows love for Him turning to dust. Again, I could write a blog on why people refuse to believe in an omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient God.

So What Are the 3 Destinations after 7 or 8 decades of biological living?

 

Hell no we won’t go:

I call these spirits the confused, frightened or just lost. Not lost as in God has forgotten about them. The higher power will see everyone at judgment. If you’re smart you will not look up. Keep looking at your toes and be as humble as you possibly can. If you want to connect with the “Hell no we won’t go” crowd; go visit the Old Washoe Club in Virginia city NV. (Or any popular haunted location). I’ve seen too many legit non-believers who confess that there are intelligent entities that exist without human bodies. Spirits or “Ghosts” do try to hang on to the earthly realm. There excuses may be that they fear judgment and do not want to face the Judge. Some don’t know that they’re dead in the earthly realm. Most do not want to accept that they are dead and hesitate to walk into the light.

 

  1. Hell

I’ve read and heard wild testimonies of former non-believers that were fortunate enough to experience a near death experience. One said he was being spread over a burning abyss with ropes attached to all 4 extremities. Another saw what he said looked like a monitor. (A large alligator sized lizard) with red eyes. If you want more vivid descriptions, I strongly suggest you go to http://www.NDERF.org . I could stay up all night reading about people who had out of Body Experiences and lived to talk about it.

 

  1. Heaven:

The typical story of the believer who died for a brief time and lived to tell about it said they didn’t want to come back. Their stories go like this:

Any pain to be suffered comes first. Instinctively you fight to live.  That is automatic.

 

It is inconceivable to the conscious mind that any other reality could possibly exist beside the earth-world of matter bounded by time and space. We are used to it. We have been trained since birth to live and thrive in it. We know ourselves to be ourselves by the external stimuli we receive. Life tells us who we are and we accept its telling. That, too, is automatic, and to be expected.

Your body goes limp.

Your heart stops.

No more air flows in or out.

You lose sight, feeling, and movement, although the ability to hear goes last. Identity ceases. The “you” that you once were becomes only a memory.

 

There is no pain at the moment of death.

 

Only peaceful silence . . . calm. . . quiet.

 

But you still exist.

 

It is easy not to breathe. In fact, it is easier, more comfortable, and infinitely more natural not to breathe than to breathe. The biggest surprise for most people in dying is to realize that dying does not end life. Whether darkness or light comes next, or some kind of event, be it positive, negative, or somewhere in-between, expected or unexpected, the biggest surprise of all is to realize you are still you. You can still think, you can still remember, you can still see, hear, move, reason, wonder, feel, question, and tell jokes ? if you wish. You are still alive, very much alive. Actually, you’re more alive after death than at any time since you were last born. This is different; different because you no longer wear a dense body to filter and amplify the various sensations you had once regarded as the only valid indicators of what constitutes life. You had always been taught one has to wear a body to live.

 

If you expect to cease to exist when you die you will be disappointed.

 

The only thing dying does is help you release, slough off, and discard the “jacket” you once wore (more commonly referred to as a body).

 

When you die you lose your body.

 

That’s all there is to it.

 

Nothing else is lost.

 

You are not your body. It is just something you wear for a while, (Like your mother’s uterus) because living in the earth-plane is infinitely more meaningful and more involved if you are encased in its trappings and subject to its rules.

 

WHAT DEATH IS

 

There is a step-up of energy at the moment of death, an increase in speed as if you are suddenly vibrating faster than before. Using radio as an analogy, this speed-up is comparable to having lived all your life at a certain radio frequency when all of a sudden someone or something comes along and flips the dial. That flip shifts you to another, higher wavelength. The original frequency where you once existed is still there. It did not change. Everything is still just the same as it was. Only you changed, only you speeded up to allow entry into the next radio frequency on the dial.

 

As is true with all radios and radio stations, there can be bleed-overs or distortions of transmission signals due to interference patterns. These can allow or force frequencies to coexist or commingle for indefinite periods of time. Normally, most shifts up the dial are fast and efficient; but, occasionally, one can run into interference, perhaps from a strong emotion, a sense of duty, or a need to fulfill a vow, or keep a promise. This interference could allow coexistence of frequencies for a few seconds, days, or even years (perhaps explaining hauntings); but, sooner or later, eventually, every given vibrational frequency will seek out or be nudged to where it belongs. You fit your particular spot on the dial by your speed of vibration. You cannot coexist forever where you do not belong.

 

Who can say how many spots there are on the dial or how many frequencies there are to inhabit. No one knows.

 

You shift frequencies in dying. You switch over to life on another wave-length. You are still a spot on the dial but you move up or down a notch or two.

 

You don’t cease to exist when you die. You shift your consciousness and speed of vibration.

 

That’s what death is, . . a shift.

 

Some NDErs say they felt free. They say they saw a tunnel that they were drawn to. Once in the tunnel, they saw a bright light. Brighter than Xenon and it expressed the emotion of pure love. Love is a common theme that most who survive near death experiences talk about. (Those who get to enter into the bright light). Those who experience the other place say they experienced fear, regret and darkness. Many say they are greeted by relatives who have passed. One then tells them it’s not their time, or, a deity gives them the choice of staying or going back. It’s at this time they must weigh the consequences of possibly leaving your children parentless or going back to suffer the rebuilding process and even going through the rest of your life looking like the elephant man. Your decision will weigh on your ultimate destination regardless. Did you go back for yourself? Did you go back for your children or spouse? Did you stay because you knew you would face great physical pain upon returning. Did you go back to seek salvation? Remember, every action has an opposite re-action.

 

You ultimately choose your destination. If I gave you a choice of two gifts; the first being the largest winning lotto ticket in history and the second a guaranteed place in heaven, which would you pick? If you have to think about it, you’re not right with God.

 

I don’t know about the 7th realm of heaven or what judgment day will be like. I do know that we live and we die a physical death. I choose to believe that after our physical death our spiritual existence is all that is left. I’ve heard we will get new bodies free of sickness or illness. Again, that is hearsay. I’ve chosen to be with my creator. I am doing whatever I can do to get the attention of my creator.

In the New Testament,

Jesus is quoted as saying in Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

~ “but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter”.   Conversely; “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness”.

It would seem Jesus must know you, and perhaps for doing the will of His Father.

THE JOURNEY PART 1

einstein-rosen-bridge2 julie

~ “the most important thing you learned in school was not WHAT you learned rather HOW to learn”

 

When you were waiting to be born on the other side as pure spiritual energy, I’m guessing there were spiritual coaches telling you to watch out for Nigerian Princes that would let you in on their gold that was being held in customs by the Nigerian government scam.  They probably told you how wonderful the womb would feel as all you had to do was pick a parent that wasn’t a crack head or pot head.  You probably were told to remember that you had a spiritual version of yourself that was pure energy, and that you would occupy a carbon based biological version of yourself that was designed by the great Higher Power (We’ll use the term God) to be fruitful and multiply.  Because God has respect and love for His creations, your spiritual conscious knowledge was erased prior to your conception.  This was to keep anything from corrupting your learning experience.  God calls this “Free Will”.

Fetus

So you sat in your mother’s womb getting everything you needed through this umbilical cord.  I truly believe this is why the concept of socialism comes so easy to people.  It’s natural for all humans to get something for nothing.  (That’s presuming that you’re not aborted and harvested for your fetal parts).  You will note that all humans are not created equal.  As you are nurtured, you feel (and fill) the need for productivity or manifest your love for sloth.

They (science) say, that babies that have mothers that take prenatal vitamins and actually read to their “bun in the oven” produce smarter children. So all of these precautions prepare the unborn for life after the womb.  It is a magnificent advantage.

You sit waiting in your mother’s uterus.  The temperature is perfect, you get everything you need to live through a life line called the umbilical cord.  If you want proof of this amazing life line, reach down and feel your belly button.(Umbilicus)  That was where your umbilical cord was attached.  Perhaps (If you could remember such thoughts) you were wondering if you would die without the use of your attachment to your mother. You wondered: “Is there life after the womb and cord”? Perhaps you struggled to hold on to the advice you were given on the other side.  Does this explain why some children are born and require very little guidance while other babies are born and must be civilized and have mores (pronounced Mor-rays) inculcated day after day?

The day of birth comes and goes.  The amniotic fluid that kept you alive for 9 months has now been drained from the pool.  As this happened, your quarters began to shake.  In Hebrew, this shaking is referred to as a “Shemitah” (Pronounced Schmee-tah).  It is the seventh year of the Hebrew calendar.  The last day of the Shemitah year is Elul 29.  For those of you interested in economy; We are in a  Shemitah year and coming up on Elul 29 next month on September 13th.  It’s a Sunday.  But unlike past Shemitahs, this Shemitah is the 7th out of 49 years which leads to what was called the “Jubilee”.  (Look it up) So as the womb started shaking or “contracting”, the paradigm was:

“Everybody out of the pool”. 

So both you, then your umbilical cord slid down the water slide into warm blankets. Your power pack (or placenta) is the last one out.  A clamp was put on your life cord, then your cord was tied off with a white ligature that looks like tennis shoe laces.  Minutes later, your mom would expel your now needless “placenta”.

baby-watching

So life didn’t end after you outgrew your womb without a view.  In fact, quite the contrary.  It had just begun.  Although you didn’t know it at the time, instead of sitting up watching “Gilligan’s Island”, you were sent to a new place where other kids your age went.  It was this place called “School”.  This is most likely where you discovered the concept that all men were not created equal. Some kids had red colored hair.  Some kids had brown skin.  Some kids could see the writings on the chalk board. (Something you might not have noticed until you stood up next to the large green structure).

Classroom_l

For the next 13 years, your life consisted of preparation.  You didn’t know it at the time.  How on earth would you ever find use for the Pythagorean theorem?  Why would I care if the square root of 144 was 12?  How come nobody ever told Einstein that i comes before e except after c?

math1

By the sixth grade (or grade 6 for my Canadian friends) you begin to think of school as just a job.  Learning was work.  Little did you know that the same thought process would help you figure out how to program a remote control device.  At this point, it is imperative to have some type of guidance.

There are those who are blessed like James Leininger III who knew at the age of 4 what they wanted to be.  Young James wants to fly FA-18s.  Then again James is one of the most documented modern day “past life experiences” on record.  He is supposedly the re-incarnation of James Huston Jr. who was a young Corsair pilot shot down in the south Pacific during WWII.  But very few of us have that kind of direction. (or recall) At the age of 11, without direction you are a sailboat in the wind without a rudder nor anchor.  For 13 years you go with the flow until the reality comes that you need to become accountable and responsible for yourself.  All of a sudden, you start wishing you could go back to the third grade and take it seriously.  You finally get it.  Even without direction, if you have advanced tools in education (Which is getting harder and harder to acquire with many of your instructors being pot heads) you will find yourself working at “Waste Management” but you (my educated friend) will not be shoveling garbage,

waste_management_fleet

rather signing the paychecks at the front office.  There in lays the difference between achieving in class and sleeping in class.

paycheck

Don’t think it ends there.  Even if you go to a community college to try to heal your poor highschool grades, and you understand the Pythagorean theorem inside and out as well as the Magna Carta, you realize that your time on this planet or dimension is short.  Once you realize that the most important thing you learned in school was not what you learned rather how to learn, you start to put the pieces of the puzzle together.  Just as our time in the womb was brief, so is our time in the body.  Just as there was another dimension after the womb, you must wonder if the process continues?

Heavens

Even more important, knowing what we know now about the value of learning and preparation, ask yourself how important it is to prepare for the next dimension?  I don’t know about 72 virgins or passing go to collect 200 in Karma and a new re-incarnated Buddhist body until I reach Nirvana; but I have been taught the tale of three dimensions after this one. Heaven, Hell and “Hell no we won’t go”

NEVER LET RELIGION…………..

Bible

STAND IN THE WAY OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

 

Mark Twain once wrote: “Never let school stand in the way of your education”. ~ Brilliant!

Why would a non-believer read the Bible? Why don’t self-proclaimed believers read the Bible? It’s good to know a little bit of historical background about this best seller. I am writing this article to both the self-proclaimed believer and the proud secular self-centered atheist.

The Bible was put together from writings in 325 AD, 12 years after Rome’s Emperor Constantine received a dream. Here is the short version of the dream: In a dream, Emperor Constantine (Who was facing great odds in the battle of the Milvian Bridge) was instructed to put the cross of Jesus on his shields and his men would be victorious. The dream said: “in hoc signo vinces.” Translated from Greek: “Through this sign, you will be victorious”. This was in 313 AD. He did and he was.

Emperor Constantine ceased the persecution of Christians and wanted a manifesto for Christianity so he formed the “Council of Nicea”. They were a group of Rome’s Christians that sorted through the “Sand Scripts” and put together that which was deemed appropriate and approved by the Roman government. So to the non-believer, yes, politics was involved. This is why we don’t see the book of Enoch in the Bible.

The Bible, throughout the years has been given the moniker of “The inspired word of God”. That is for you to accept, reject or consider; *Note, It doesn’t say “The spoken word of God”. Nonetheless, it has been accepted by Christians and Jews as the documented communication between God and man.

We were all created with the gift of Free Will. With this gift comes the albatross called “Responsibility”. You may have heard the phrase: “I’m a grown adult. I can make my own decisions”. I say: “Yes you are and you best be prepared for the unintended consequences”. (Because they belong to you). Remember this sentence: “You are where you are because of who you are”.

You have to take responsibility for your actions for even being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Even if you take your god out of the equation, and you are the self-proclaimed arbiter of your own criteria of right and wrong; you are still responsible for your outcome. You may say: “I’m not responsible for being in a car crash, the other guy was on his cell phone”. That may be true, but there will always be other guys on their cell phones. If you’re a pro-active person, you have insurance and you move forward in life. (Hopefully without lifelong sustaining injuries). I always look for distracted drivers on cell phones and consider them legally drunk.

At that point, some choose to blame life, blame their god, blame the other driver, blame Steve Jobs, and blame the police for not catching the text messenger on his phone. But blaming others doesn’t allow you to move forward. Accepting that rain falls on everyone at one time or another will. It’s the cost of Free Will. Bad things happen to good people because God let us run our own lives, rather than creating us “Humanoids”. You cannot have love if the other person does not have the free will to reject you. So those of you who are radio evangelist Christians that think once saved always saved, remember this: “You cannot lose your salvation, but you can willfully walk away from it”. God will not force anyone into heaven.

The Bible is full of rules; “Thou shall nots” and “Thou shalt”. Sometimes if you ignore the “Shall nots”, you’ll suffer the unintended consequences like divorce, which leads to screwed up children that repeat the cycle. Yes, being a human does come with a manual. It’s up to you to find the one you want to base your human experience on.

To the Atheist that reads the Bible as a “Self-Help” Book, I can only say that you will find nuggets of wisdom in the book; however you’re not getting the full benefit of this nice collection of letters and historical accounts of a person who professed to be the One and only God of eternity in the Flesh if you are not open to the idea of an omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient Power. In the first five books of the Old Testament which Jews refer to as the Torah, you have the spoken words of God written by Moses. In the New Testament, you’ll find the words of God spoken through the Son of God in the human called Jesus the Messiah.

You’ll find wisdom that you use every day and you probably didn’t even know it. For example: “You reap what ye sow” is another way of saying: “What goes around comes around”.

The Bible is a good book for the Atheist to determine right from wrong. The hardest thing for the Atheist to understand is that God allows evil to happen. Bitter non-believers are always saying: “Why did God allow this madman to gun down my child on the playground”? Or even more accurately spoken: “How can a loving God allow this to happen”? What we as humans don’t understand is that death might not be “The End”. We often see the suffering of a person and associate that with death thus giving death a negative connotation. When we were a fetus in the womb, we thought that once the cord between our mother was severed, and we were kicked out of the warm womb, life would be over. We didn’t know any better. Then we saw what was our journey for the next 70 to 80 years.

It boils down to this:

It’s harder to get HIV from Heterosexual sex.

It’s easier to go through life not having to remember lies.

It’s easier to work for something and buy it than do 10 years in prison for robbery.

It’s easier to live longer if you don’t fornicate your neighbor’s wife.

It’s easier to be happy if you find your happiness from within rather waiting for someone else to wipe your butt.

It’s easier to go to the store if your name is not on a “Wanted for Murder” poster.

If you create false gods like Golf, Cars, money, self-admiration, Pornography or whatever you worship, you have a greater chance of being disappointed.

If you worship the one God who is the father of Jesus and the Creator of the Holy Spirit; the worst that can happen is you’ve sacrificed worldly pleasures which ARE finite and disposable. (Read the book of Ecclesiastes written by King Solomon, the richest man to ever live) He did it all. He owned mansions and had cool things called “concubines” (look it up) and he did drugs and alcohol. He had treasures and gold as in: “The riches of Solomon”. I think that’s where the term: “It’s good to be king” came from. Wait that was Mel Brooks. In the end he realized that the only constant in his life was not baseball as James Earl Jones says, rather a relationship with the Creator.

The Bible offers insight into what’s next. The Bible offers you a map that shows the bifurcation in the road and how one leads to green pastures and the other a steep deadly cliff.  It invites you to be more than Pavlov’s dog.  It introduces the concept that there is more to life than that which you can see, touch, smell, taste and hear.  Perhaps it borders on “Quantum Physics”.

If the Bible is wrong, and you were a believer, the worst case scenario is you’ve lived a decent life with minimal regrets. If the Bible is right and you were an Atheist, the “after-life” might not be so good a place, ya know? It’s your choice. I could add that when you get to be my age you’ll understand, but you’re not guaranteed tomorrow so don’t worry about judgment day, worry about today.

MR. HATE

Mrhate

 

Sometimes he comes across as simply obnoxious. His favorite interaction is an insult. If you’re lucky, you’ll get off with him whispering under his voice: “ah blow it out your ass”! If you’re not so lucky, beware. When Mr. Hate goes into silent mode, he is internalizing. That means Look Out for MR. HATE

 

Many of you may be working next to Mr. Hate and not even know it. He doesn’t always look like the comic character with a red face and eyes about to explode. (And steam coming out of his ears) Sometimes Mr. Hate is a really quiet person, until he takes his hate out with his car on the sidewalk or a car bomb.

 Golden Key

God gave us one fantastic gift. It’s a special key. It’s called free will. But I’ll keep this story on the secular level. (For the sake of the non-believer). Here’s a sentence that can change your life if you think hard enough about it. You are unhappy because you choose to be unhappy. Happiness is an inside out principle. Many of you who have watched the movie “The Secret” know about the law of attraction. That law is “Free Will”. One of the secrets in the Christian religion is to be “Thankful” for your blessings. Sometimes your blessings are hard to find, especially if you’re angry because you’re driving a BMW and you really want a Ferrari. Think about how nice your BMW is compared to a Geo.

 Geo

Mr. Hate got his name because he never found out how to use this key. Have you ever noticed how some people can get stuck in any situation under the worst circumstances and they learn to adapt, improvise and overcome? (ooo-rah) Yes some people it seems were born with the knowledge of the key. Good things happen as a result of knowing the power of the key. The key or free will is based on the concept of Isaac Newton’s theory that for every action there is an opposite, opposed reaction. If you cover a Chimney; the smoke will find other ways to escape. In Mr. Hate’s case, it’s often sarcasm, cruelty and sometimes just bitterness.

 

In Mr. Hate’s situation; He’s hateful because he chooses to be hateful. When you choose to be hateful you resort to blame. You blame everyone else because of basically three reasons: It is not how I was brought up, (Blaming your parents is often at the top of the list) I’m Irish or German or Swahili and have a short temper, or my boss is a jerk. Your boss can be your coach, spouse, tax account, anyone you rely on for some form of interaction.

 

How does Mr. Hate manifest his hate or anger? Sometimes it starts out with just snarky little jabs disguised to appear innocent. Sometimes, Mr. Hate uses his hateful persona in the form of fear or intimidation. How many of you have heard someone say: “You don’t want to get on their bad side” or “Just go along with her, it’s not worth listening to the rant”. If Mr. Hate is materialistic and bases life on the amount of toys they have when they die, they tend to neve understand that someone will always have more “Stuff”. Sadly, these people see your Stuff as Crap, while their crap is stuff. (An old George Carlin joke)

 

Yes you could be driving a Ferrari 308 while Mr. Hate drives his Geo, but in his mind your 308 is worthless because it’s not a 275GTB NART (Current sale price 25 Million and only 10 ever made). Lincoln once said: “You’ll never elevate yourself by trying to bring others down”.

 Dino Nart

Don’t be fooled, Mr. Hate knows the art of denial. Yet his biggest enemy is himself. Not because there is anything wrong with him, but because he’s chosen to stew in his anger rather than pull himself up by the bootstraps and do something about the crappy cards he was dealt. Sometimes you get dealt a deuce, a four a five and a pair of sevens. Sometimes you get 4 Aces dealt to you. When I look at the former I see a possible full house. Mr. Hate didn’t get four Aces so he throws all 5 cards back. Warning, only Mr. Hate can help himself.

Aces

The Secret Power that makes the Special Key work is …………….. Responsibility.

You are WHERE you are because of WHO you are. You choose to be there.
