Don’t eat the Apple!!!

 

-“No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus.  His personality pulsates in every word.  No myth is filled with such life.”  ~Albert Einstein

Okay, let’s talk about Jesus again.  If you’ve been reading my posts you know I’m talking about Jesus as the man who transcended the illusion of a physical world in his lifetime.  I’m talking about the man who knew that the story of Adam and Eve eating the apple from the Tree of Knowledge was sorely misinterpreted.  He knew the real meaning of the story is that the apple represents knowledge received in the physical world.  The knowledge given by the “apple,” in this case, is that the physical world is reality.  That’s all the apple represented, belief in a physical reality, a belief in the data of the physical world.  Adam and Eve were banished from heaven, heaven being the truth that physical reality is an illusion and that we are actually spiritual beings.  And, so, they were banished from the state of grace, from knowing who they truly were.  Their banishment was self-imposed.  Once they believed that the physical world was the only reality, they forgot that they were unlimited divine beings.  Knowledge, in this sense, is a human understanding of life.  Adam and Eve gave up their divinity by believing in the physical as real.  Of course God didn’t kick them out.  They simply erroneously believed.  Heaven is knowing that only love is real and all else is illusory.  We get knowledge from the physical world, laws such as the law of gravity and the laws of motion.  The only “truth” that many believe is what our five senses can tell us.  From the spiritual world we know all, we are omniscient, we are all-powerful and all creative.  We are the pure energy of love.  The spiritual world shows us that we are unlimited and all present.  We cannot get this knowing from the physical world.  All we can get from the physical world is facts and data.  That is why it is so important to spend time in spirit.  That is what Jesus was trying to tell us.

In spirit we begin to realize just how amazing and connected we are to All, and I mean All, the everything, everyone kind of All.  We begin to know of our divinity and we find out that we are boundless love.  Jesus knew that.  He realized that this physical reality is just a collective holograph, a theory that quantum physicists are just now putting forward.  Professor, you had nothing over Jesus.  Imagine a being so advanced that he was able to “divine” all of this.  And he shared it with us.  He was love.  He could only heal people who believed that he was divine love.  When we can see him clearly, without all the misinterpretations that have been presented as his message, then we can learn from his life.

I’m repeating myself here, but Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is within.”  You are God.  You are a part of the divine.  You are the pure energy of love which is everywhere and infinite.  You were created in the “image of God.”   There is no time and space.  There is only the “always was and always will be.”  There is only the omnipresent and omniscient.  Sounds like God and is also the definition of energy.  As God cannot be destroyed neither can energy.  Neither can you.  As God is everywhere at all times, so is energy.  So are you.  As God makes up infinity, so does energy.  So do you.

It has already been shown that all matter is simply dense, organized energy, so surely you can at least be open to the idea that you are a part of the All.  Matter is energy.  You are matter, therefore…  When we all finally realize our divinity the world will no longer be a place of competition and fear of lack.  We will all realize our connectedness and that we are all a unique and integral part of pure love and peace.  We are as important as Jesus was in bringing the truth to light.

Through your consciousness, indistinguishable from the All, you bring that light into the world.  That’s how important you are.  We cannot do this individually.  We must all be brought into the truth.  The truth will, literally, set us free.  So, the next time you think about meditating to raise your consciousness, remember that you will be doing the world a service by opening to spirit.  The more people who open to spirit the more our Collective Consciousness will be raised and then more people will begin to really “know” the divine.

Jesus is a part of you.  His energy, also called, “Christ Consciousness” is what will lead you to the divine.  I’m not saying the only way to God is through belief that Jesus was his son.  I don’t think Jesus was saying that.  When he said that the only way to heaven “is through me,” I believe he was using “me” as his term for pure consciousness.  Also called the “I am”

“I am” is a good meditation mantra.  “I am” is a powerful tool of transformation. I am.  Jesus knew the I am.  He is the I am.  He taught the I am.  All that we are is what Jesus taught us.  He is not the only being who lived on earth that transcended the illusion.  There are those recorded in history like Jesus, the Buddha, and others, but many more who quietly transcended or had few followers.  Jesus and Buddha brought their light to many more and have changed many lives.  Most  humans have been so entrenched in the physical world that few have understood or listened.  He who has ears, listen was a refrain of Jesus.  In areas of the world where spirituality is given more importance than consuming and conquering there have been many more trancendants, places like India and parts of Asia.  There have been many “masters” from these areas because their culture embraces the idea of spiritual transcendence, but more importantly they embrace living a life focused on spiritual loving kindness.  People like Lao Tsu who wrote the I Ching.  Our culture is changing and there is a huge spiritual movement of unprecedented numbers.  Sixty years ago meditation wasn’t even in most people’s vocabulary, let alone a part of their lives and yet, now, it is a daily practice for many in the west.

We are a growing number.  People are dissatisfied with the physical reality.  There can be no true and lasting joy in the physical reality.  Only by knowing who we are can we ever truly be self-realized and eternally happy.  So, thank you, Jesus and all of you other masters, for that.  We’re working on it.

Some transcendental affirmations:

  • I am.
  • I am love.
  • I am peace.
  • I am divine.
  • I am prosperous.
  • I am generous.
  • I am perfect.

Imagine you get to interview Jesus or Buddha or any master for a morning news show.  Ask them some good questions.

All things come to pass, but love endures.

“There is, after all, something eternal that lies beyond the reach of the hand of fate and of all human delusions.”  ~Albert Einstein

What’s the most important thing to you?  Is it your family, your best friend, your dog?  I bet it’s a living, breathing being and not a thing.  Everything real lasts forever, but all things pass.  Bad times pass.  Snowstorms pass.  The physical body passes.  It’s the love that endures.   The only thing real is love.  If you can believe that you will know peace.  We are a soul with a body.  We are not a body with a soul.  There is a big difference.

We endure.  Our energy does not decay.  Our love does not dissappear.  It endures.  Do you sometimes feel the love of those who have passed from their bodies?  Do you feel their presence?  I have.  They are still with you.  It is the love that goes on.

All the material things we wish for, all the material gifts we give and receive, all the stuff is unimportant.  It is something that we made up, something we manifested.  It is matter and it doesn’t matter.  Our essence matters, who we are matters.  Don’t give up on being your authentic self.

I’m no authority on anything, like I say, ‘I’m no Einstein,’ even Einstein said, “I’m no Einstein.”  It’s true.  He did say that.  So don’t listen to me or anyone else about what is right for you.  Take what resonates with you and leave the rest behind.  Who we are on this plane, the physical world, is not who we are.  We are love.  We are abundance.  We are creativity.  We are divine.  Jesus and Buddha and many others knew this.  “The kingdom of heaven is within.”  “On earth as it is in heaven.”   “Oneness.”  “I am.”  Our energy and how we use it can transform our lives and the world into paradise.  It can also make our lives hell if we so choose.  Choose heaven.

We can help transform the world through our love, through realizing we are love.  In doing this we help others to see their true selves.  When we are ourselves and that light shines through it helps the world.  The only mistake we make is believing that the world is real and our spirit is an illusion.  In that mistake lies fear because we think we are at the mercy of material laws.  We are above the laws of the physical plane.  We invented the physical plane!  But, we are not above certain ones, like flying with only our bodies!  When we realize collectively that we make the rules then all will be possible. even flying.  We will imagine a new paradigm.  Things like abundance and health are at our disposal now because we can manifest those using the physical laws accepted by the collective.

But, we have all heard of spontaneous healings which are not part of our collective belief system.  Anita Moorjani wrote a wonderful book about her experience with that, Dying to Be Me.   Miracles are possible on a personal level.  Her family was told her death was imminent, her organs had shut down.  Her story of this experience is amazing.  Anita has a message for us.  Saints in the mystic Catholic traditon have been known to levitate, St. Angela of Brescia and others.  And, also members of other mystic traditions.  These are isolated instances because these few were able to let go of their limitations.  When we have all let go, we will all be limitless.  Until then we will live by the laws and limitations of the collective paradigm with a few exceptions.  You can be one of them!

When we all know that we can do anything, that we are everything, we will be done with limits.  Since time is not linear, then we are done.  That’s just too much, isn’t it?  It all turns out perfectly, by the way!

I am so grateful for the opportunity to write these posts because they are a constant reminder to me of what’s important and how I want to live my life here.  I learn as I write.  Thank you.

May the force be with you.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”  ~Albert Einstein

I’m no Einstein but I believe we are all part of this creative force which I call the universe.  I believe this universe, some may call it God or Love, is not personally involved with every aspect of our lives, and by that I mean that God does not interfere with our free will.  I do not mean that we are not loved.  We are perfect creative spirits who are well-loved.  In fact, we are love.  We have been given great power to control our own lives and for an external God to interfere would be unfair to our growth and personal creativity.  Most religions tell us that we are created in the image of God.  God (the universe, the higher self, Goddess) is THE CREATIVE FORCE!  Therefore we are a creative force to be reckoned with!  God is everywhere, s/he is in everything, s/he is omnipresent, and omniscient, s/he always was and always will be.   Sounds like the definition of energy to me.  What do you think?  In the old days physics and creativity were not understood, so these concepts were explained as much as they could be with myth and metaphor.  They were shrouded in language more comprehensible for that time.  You are a part of this energy that has been called God.  You are connected to all of this energy and have access to its power and abundance.

Many religions have very similar themes.  Prominent among them is the idea that what you give you also receive; the Eastern belief in karma, proclaimed in Christianity as “whatever ye sow, so shall ye reap.”  Put out good energy, get good energy back!  Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven is within.  He said, ask and ye shall receive, knock and the door will be opened, seek and ye shall find.  He also told his disciples that they would not understand what he meant for a long time.  Maybe the time has come.  I believe he was telling them of their incredible, infinite creative power and their connectedness to source (God, Universe. Love).

State your desires and have faith, believe your positive thoughts will manifest as positive results.  “And all things, whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.”  This is from Matthew in the New Testament.  I’m not expounding on these religious quotes because I am a religious person, but to show that this is not a new paradigm.  The idea of creating your life through your thoughts is an ancient belief and practice.  If you look at Jesus’ words alone you will see how prevalent the concepts of faith, belief, and manifestation are in his teachings.  Water to wine.  He was the ultimate manifestor.  You may counter this statement with the argument that he died on the cross and you would be remiss if you didn’t ask why he didn’t prevent his own death.

 “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”  -Albert Einstein

Jesus knew that this world was an illusion.  He knew there is no such thing as death.  He came back, didn’t he?  If this world is an illusion, and so persistent that we don’t have the capacity to escape from it at this point in our spiritual evolution, then it might as well be a beautiful illusion!  Make your world beautiful.  Make your world the world you desire!  Use positive, abundance affirming thoughts and visualizations to change your world.

Use the following affirmations to increase the positive energy you send into the universe.  Say them with feeling.  Say them with faith.  Say them with strength of conviction.  The positive emotions you produce when you say the affirmations, the pictures you visualize of the life you desire as you say the affirmations multiply the positive energetic effects of the affirmations!

Patience is more than just a virtue.

“Learn to be happy through the good fortunes and joys of your friends…If you allow these natural feelings to blossom within you, your every burden will seem lighter or more bearable to you, you will find your own way through patience, and you will spread joy everywhere.”  ~Albert Einstein

There are reasons one may be unhappy at another’s fortune.  They all stem from untruths.  Generally one believes that the other person got something they didn’t deserve, that they didn’t work hard enough for it, that they were just lucky.  They may believe that they will not be able to do as well or don’t have the talents or necessary attributes to get what they want.  It all stems from fear of one form or another.  Be happy for the joy of others.

Let’s celebarte other’s good fortune!

No one need feel jealous.  Jealousy is just another result of fear.  We all have the option to have whatever we want.   We have to let go of the untruths.  We have to let go of the idea that we have to know the right person, be in the right place, be “lucky,” or be smart, strong, look a certain way, or act a certain way or……ad infinitum list of qualities needed to succeed.  Celebrate the success of others!

Success is about what’s inside, not what’s outside.  We become successful at anything by first imagining it.  We have to see the outcome.  We have to see the final result.  We don’t need to know how to achieve it in the beginning.  To paraphrase another great man, Martin Luther King, ” you don’t have to see the top of the staircase to take the first step.”  See the end result you want, enjoy the vision, really enjoy it.  See it clearly and completely!

Do this daily.  The universe will start sending you ways to accomplish your goal.  If you aren’t seeing any signs about how to start, just start.  The universe will see this as motivation and  as your belief that it is going to happen.  It will start sending you methods to get closer to the ultimate result you envision.  Remember Einstein said you will find your own way “through patience.”  The universe takes care of the whats, whos,’ hows, wheres, and also, the whens!  If you don’t have patience you are telling the universe that you don’t have faith, that you don’t believe it will happen, and you know what the universe will do.  Yes, it will reflect your beliefs.

     Have patience in your practice.  See, believe, respond, act, and have patience.  Patience is just another word for faith.  Acting in faith is telling the universe that you know your end result is here.

     Act as though you are already there.  Feel as though you are already there!  Yes!  It’s so exciting to know that the universe responds to your thoughts, because your thoughts are so positively enthusiastic and joyful.  Life is great when you can see it and know it’s here.  And you can be happy on the way, not just at the destination!  If you don’t feel happy, then practice!  You may be surprised at how soon the emotion follows the thoughts.

Some affirmations to patiently learn:

I know that even though I cannot see it the universe is working for me.

My life is unfolding exactly how and when it should for my perfect ending.

All good things are mine and all good things come at the right time.

I do what I love and I love what I do.

I attract happy and healthy people into my life.

See your perfect evening at home.  Make it detailed.  Enjoy.
