'A lesson for all of us'
once was a little boy who had a bad temper.His Father gave him a bag of
nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a
nail into the back of the fence.The first day, the boy had driven 37
nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control
his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.
He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those
nails into the fence.Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his
temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested
that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold
his temper.The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell
his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the
hand and led him to the fence He said, ‘You have done well, my son, but
look at the holes in the fence.The fence will never be the same. When
you say things in anger,they leave a scar just like this one. You can
put a knife in a man and draw it out It won’t matter how many times you
say ‘I’m sorry’, the wound is still there.A verbal wound is as bad as a
'Finding Jesus on
Jesus walked the earth on Christmas Eve, where Would He go to worship
or pray? Adorned in old clothes, a Hebrew shawl, and a pair of old
sandals, who Would welcome Him in to grace their hall? With pockets
empty of gold coin or plastic to swipe, who Would give Him a morsel of
a roof for the cold night? If He knocked on the door
of B'nai Jeshurun, Would they not say, take a left down that road, my
friend, to show Him the Salvation Army? If He wandered to your walkway
beside your reindeer and red sleigh, Would you not send him swiftly on
His way? Would you invite Him in to warm Himself by your fire, give Him
a cookie from Santa's stash, and a cup of spiced eggnog with rum? Or
Would you call the police and report a bum?So where Would you find
Jesus, the poor Jew, if He walked the earth this Christmas Eve? Would
He knock on the door at the Church of Christ and sit among the
parishioners and listen to a mass in a foreign language ? You Would
think not.You Would probably not see Him, because He Would be standing
on line with the hungry and poor at your local soup kitchen. He Would
not be quoting scripture and verse, nor ask what religion or faith you
be. He Would be sitting beside a homeless veteran in some darkened
doorway on the edge of town. He Would be standing on a Bridge next to a
jumper ready to plunge or he Would be holding the hand of prostitute
child strung-out on dope. He Would not attend his own birthday party,
because the Spirit Would move Him another way, just as it did 2000
years ago. That's where you Would find Jesus on Christmas Eve.

'Who You Really Are?
Going Beyond The Mind'
know who you really are, you have to detach yourself from the world and
turn to your consciousness.The world around us looks so real, and to
proclaim that it is only an illusion may seem sheer nonsense. How can
it be? Yet, it is possible to accept this idea. I believe you agree
with me, if I say that the body is some sort of an extraordinary
machine. It is made up of a combination of materials, but it functions
as a unit. Can you say confidently that you are the body? Are you the
hair that is cut and thrown away when you go to the hairdresser? The
body changes through the years, are you this changing form?Can you say
that you are a particular thought? Many thoughts pass through the mind
each day. They are like a movie that passes in front of your eyes.
Sometimes the movie is interesting, and sometimes it is boring.
Sometimes it engenders happy feelings sometimes it causes the rise of
sadness or anger. Do you remember a thought that you thought an hour
ago? Yesterday? How can these thoughts be the real you? You think of
them, but you are not them.The same thing goes for your feelings. It is
not true to say, I am angry, I am sad, and I am happy. It is truer to
say, I am letting now a feeling of anger, sadness or happiness to
occupy my consciousness for a while. You, the basic you, stay the same,
while feelings come and go. You are not your feelings, which change
constantly.THEN WHO ARE YOU? The mind cannot describe what is beyond
it, because it has not been there. It can understand mental
descriptions, which only give it a clue of the reality beyond it. To
know who you really are, you have to transform your awareness beyond
the mind. You are beyond the physical body, feelings and thoughts. You
are the eternal, impersonal consciousness that created and infused life
into this conglomeration of body, feelings and thoughts that you call
me.This homogeneous, indivisible, complete consciousness manifests in
everything. It is the life principle of the manifestation that you
consider to be yourself. The manifestation, which is the combination of
body, thoughts and feelings, is nothing without this life principle. We
can certainly say that the consciousness is the only real thing, and
every manifestation is just a creation, and therefore not permanent,
eternal or real in the sense that it can exist by itself.Can you become
aware of this great consciousness? Yes, of course. You are it. You are
letting thoughts and feelings cloud it. If you constantly pay attention
to the outside world, then it becomes very real for you. If you find a
way to detach yourself from it, and turn your attention within, to the
consciousness beyond the mind, you can tear off the screen of illusion,
and live consciously in this great consciousness.Silence of the mind is
the prerequisite to awakening spiritually. Only when the mind is
silenced and there are no thoughts, you realize who you really are the
vast, eternal consciousness.This is what has been called spiritual
awakening or enlightenment. This is what yogis, saints, Rosicrucian's
and seekers on the spiritual path seek. It is here and now. All you
have to do is change the way you view the world. You have to learn to
dis-identify yourself with your body, feelings and thoughts, and
develop true detachment. Through constant meditation the mind is made
quiet. Then, from deep inside will raise a great silence, peace, life,
consciousness and being. This is the real you. This is
enlightenment.When you are spiritually awakened, your life will
probably go on as before. You will still have to eat, sleep and take
care of the physical life, though you know through your experience that
everything is just an illusion. If you view a movie with detachment,
you may enjoy it, yet you will not be moved by what happens in it. You
know it is just a movie, the projection of light and color on a screen.
You see it, but it does not cause thoughts or feelings to arise. It is
the same with the world. The world is not real. You, your real I, live
in an undifferentiated eternity, yet the body seems to continue to live
in a created world.When you are spiritually awakened nothing can
influence you anymore. You are beyond life and death. You will still
have to provide food, clothes and a house for the body, yet, whatever
you do, you will do with inner detachment. You may go on acting
intensively in the world, yet remaining uninvolved in consciousness, as
if outside of the world.When you wake up to your real consciousness,
and manage to stay in it more or less permanently, you may disregard
the power of the mind, or you may use it to mold your illusion your
world, though by now you stop believing in its reality.Going beyond the
mind, beyond the illusion of the world, and awakening spiritually, puts
a great power and responsibility in your hands, for then you have the
power to influence the world.

'Become a conscious
co-creator of reality'
you choose to become a conscious co-creator of reality, think of this
as a guide to your adventure of becoming all that you can be.Many
people get stuck with the idea of creating reality because of not
having a deeper understanding of the subject. Because it is a subject
of such a profound nature, to oversimplify it Would be to risk
misunderstanding and limitation.
As with all things it is best to
trust your own inner sense of truth. Question everything, and dig to
find your own wisdom. I offer you my understanding, but encourage you
to find your own truth.
When we talk about the ability to
create reality, we are in the realm of power. Reality creation is an
issue of power and therefore we need to first understand what power
really is. So here is a summary and diagram of those main concepts from
which we can build a more advanced understanding.
Here is a formula
to understand power:Power = Responsibility + Choice P=R+C Your sense of
power is proportional to your ability to respond (response-ability,
responsibility for your choices) and your awareness of choice.
Therefore, to increase your power, you must increase your sense of
responsibility and your awareness of choice. We feel powerless when we
believe that we have no choice. We are empowered by increasing our
awareness of choice.
We tend as humans to move from one extreme of a
polarity to another. We do this out of fear. In our fear of
powerlessness we move to the opposite extreme of believing that we are
all powerful (+ power), in other words we exaggerate our sense of
power. In our fear of being all powerful, we move to the extreme of
believing that we lack power (-power), in other words we suppress our
Neither extremes are true we when look from the place of
our deeper wisdom. Our deeper wisdom tells us that we are both powerful
and powerless, and that we find our place of true peace at the fulcrum,
balanced between the two extremes.
By trying to
exaggerate your power you take on the belief that you are all powerful
and that every aspect of your outer reality is your creation and within
your control. This leaves you burdened with other people's choices and
with the weight of the entire earth reality on your shoulders.
this, if you created it all, you must also be responsible for it all,
including other people's actions and their choices. Other people's
realities are non existent, it's all you and it's all your fat. Even
winter is your fat if we follow this reasoning. This doesn't ring true
at our deepest place of reason. For example, if you created winter you
shod be able to un-create it. But thinking summer thoughts for the rest
of your days will not change the reality of winter. This belief leaves
you feeling frustrated and in pain.
If you live with this belief,
you will carry other people's burdens, responsibilities and even trying
to interfere with their destinies. The healing for this is to accept
the opposite polarity of power instead of being afraid of it and to
give the reality of powerlessness a place. When you accept that there
are aspects of reality that you do not create, that belong to the
reality of earth (like winter) or are the creation of other people, you
find peace. And ironically when you drop fighting the reality of
powerlessness by trying to be all-powerful, this place of acceptance
gives you more power to bring change in the world.
trying to suppress your power, out of the fear of it, you will go to
place of being in victim consciousness. At this extreme polarity you
will hold the belief that you have no power, no choice and no
responsibility. You resign from your place as a co-creator of your
reality and blame others for what shows up in your world. The rest is
that you feel like a pawn in your own life. Your potential to grow and
learn are severally stunted and you lose touch with your creativity,
your ability to bring change, your individuality and your so. You live
in anger or fear of those that you believe have more power than you, or
you live trying to steal, bargain, earn, seduce or beg for your
resources. When you accept your responsibility for your reality and
learn to create choices as well as be aware of the choices already in
existence, you regain your power.
Like with most
things, the truth is in the middle. At the balance point of the fulcrum
of power, we become conscious. We acknowledge and accept where we do
have choice, and we claim our power and take responsibility. And in
that moment, we claim our peace and our power.You cannot change the
wind, but you can adjust your sails anon.
The Deeper knowledge We
have explored the realm of power and now if we are to explore conscious
co-creation at a deeper level, we must look at the 2
be conscious is to be aware. If you are conscious of something you are
aware of it. If you are unconscious, you are unaware. We shape our
realities from both our conscious and unconscious aspects of self. For
example, you may be trying to build a business and feel frustrated at
why it continues to struggle. You may be consciously aware of all your
efforts to create abundance and success. But you may not be aware of
your unconscious fears and beliefs. These unconscious fears and beliefs
have the power to sabotage your creations. Becoming conscious, is about
bringing things out of the dark and into the light of your awareness.
Getting to know yourself, spending time acknowledging your body's
feelings and exploring the root of your fears will help you to unpack
the hidden forces in your life and to transform and heal them.Let's now
make conscious the aspect of ourselves that has the ability to create.
Are you creating your future?
Can you change your future?
and your future time lines if you are impacting your reality you must
in some way be affecting your future. So let's look at time and the
concept of time lines to better understand how we co-create our
reality.Your body is convinced that time is linear. It looks back and
sees a single past. It looks forward and sees an unknown future. It
presumes that because it sees one past that there is one future. The so
has a very different view of time. It sees multidimensional. In past
life regression work for example, people often remember not only
reviewing the past life that they did live, but also the time lines of
that past life that they didn't live. In other words, had they made
other choices, they Would have seen different consequences. The so can
review these unlived time lines from a so state to gain more learning
about their incarnation.Physical things decay, they are born and travel
always towards a certain death. Your body models reality on this
At a so level time looks very
different.Imagine a sphere with horizontal and vertical lines covering
it, in a similar way to our images of an earth with longitude and
latitude lines. Now imagine that all of the vertical lines represent
linear time and all of the horizontal lines represent choice. As you
move along a linear path vertically through your life experience, you
can at any point shift along a horizontal 'choice' to another vertical
life path. Each vertical path has different sets of variables and
consequences; it represents a different time line.The lines are not
finite but extend into a circular sphere. The poles are points of
multiple time line intersection. Here are the points of Alpha and
Omega, where cycles begin and end and yet true to any cycle have no
real end and no beginning. The horizontal lines are infinite, going
round and round, therefore showing us that there are always an infinite
array of choices at every juncture of our life's progression. We have
maximum free will.Do you create the time lines?
Strictly speaking it
may be more true to use the word 'choose' rather than create. Imagine
that all of the time lines already exist, that every possible potential
experience waits dormant before you. Some time lines remain dormant;
others are brought to life in response to your ever changing inner
reality. Every choice you make, every intention that you fix, every
conscious and unconscious motivation, combined with the deeper wisdom
and guidance of your so, brings certain time lines to life and subdues
others.Navigating time lines is not easy, because there are so many
variables at play.
There is the power of your own inner world:
your choices, your intentions, you're conscious and unconscious
motivations, your beliefs, your Soul's intentions for this lifetime;
all combined with the power of an external reality that has its own
res. Your external reality is a mix a physical laws like gravity, other
people's realities, choices and actions, as well as the combined
collective time lines built by groups of minds and Soul's. Each couple
family, community and country contributes to the collective reality of
life on earth.
All of this happens on the surface of our symbolic
time line sphere. On the surface we direct our consciousness into
linear experiences of time, choice and consequence. We navigate our own
personal time lines as well as the collective time lines and realities
of us all.The place of intimate creative powerful you want to find the
place of true creative power where a person is able to influence the
collective realities and external realities of the planet,you must look
deeper than the surface to the center.
All the while beneath the
surface is a centre that sits in peace and stillness.We earn our right
to operate from this centre of power by operating from within the
nature of the consciousness that resides there. The nature of
consciousness at the center of the sphere is the truest expression of
what it means to be a so. It is connected to our source, our god
consciousness. On the surface, we are entangled in the extremities of
space-time reality; we experience fear because we buy in to the reality
of beginnings and endings, and because we buy into the reality of
The reality of linear beginnings and endings and
separation only exists on the surface of our consciousness. At the
centre of our being we know ourselves as one, we experienced unity and
timelessness. At the centre we do not operate from a place of fear and
survival, we operate from a place of peace, wisdom and love. The power
to alter collective and external realities is only acquired from the
deepest place of peace wisdom and love. This protects the earth reality
from the abuse of this power.
When you are in the centre of the
sphere you exit the realm of space-time reality. You sacrifice part of
your power to learn from a place of powerlessness and shadow. When
moving your point of consciousness away from the centre and onto the
grid of time lines, you enter into space time reality, armed with
infinite choice to experience your self in various dimensions, to
learn, grow and be all things. While incarnated we can learn to become
aware of the part of ourselves that exists at the centre, but in doing
so we challenge our body's reality which is anchored in a fear driven
linear reality.Being a human means accepting with humility the external
reality that we face until we find true peace wisdom and love and earn
the power to inspire and create change in the world.
reality, instead of accepting it, causes what you are fighting to grow
in strength instead of diminishing it. The saying what you resist
persists is relevant here. Acceptance brings the power to transform. We
accept when we have wisdom, peace and love.Future realities are not
separate things like roads that lie ahead for you to walk on. The
future is the collective reality being built by groups of individuals.
It is the path you build each day with each thought, decision and
intention and it is the highway we build together as groups in
families, countries and on earth.
The power to change winter, or
affect collective external reality lies not on the surface where our
egos and fear have dominion. The power to change the winter lies in a
deep sacred place at the center of all Being, and if you managed even
for a moment to be there it is likely that in your wisdom and peace you
Would not to judge the winter, or fear it.
It is likely that
instead you Would bow to it with respect and reverence. In that moment
a bridge is built between the reality of the shadow and the reality of
the light. And it only takes one light to illuminate even the darkest
of spaces. The conscious co-creator of reality works from the centre of
his or her being, in peace, with wisdom and love to build bridges from
the shadow to the light.
'Things only appear to
Things only appear to die, said one of the philosophers initiated in
the ancient sanctuaries; likewise, things
seem to be born. When a thing passes from the state of essence to the
state of nature, we call it birth; and we call death the return from
the state of nature to the state of essence. In reality, a thing is
never created nor destroyed; it only becomes visible or invisible. In
the first case, cause resides in the density of matter, and in the
second case, it resides in the subtlety of the essence that remains
forever the same, differing only in the condition of motion and rest.
The modifications of living beings do not belong in reality to these
beings individually, but all modifications belong to the single
universal Being. And what shall we call the reason of all these
phenomena but the primordial essence which, undoubtedly, provokes and
determines, and becomes all in all things.

'A Lesson To Be Learned'
The Door With a heavy heart and the burdens of a hard life, a man shyly
walked up to the doorstep of God.
Curious and slightly intimidated, he lightly tapped on the golden
veneer of the Almighty's magnificent front door.
After a few uncomfortable seconds of silence, he thought to himself,
Maybe God did not hear his knock, so he rapped on the door just a
little bit harder. Again, there was no answer.
Confused, as one might expect, the man began to knock louder and
harder. Still, there was no answer.
His anticipation turned into worry. His worry turned into fear. His
fear turned into desperation.
Panicking, he thought to himself, Does God not hear me?
Is He ignoring me?
Why doesn't He answer?
Where is He?
all the while, although the man did not notice, God was patiently and
lovingly watching this man claw and fight and pound in desperation.
The One did not speak a word.Like a two-year old throwing a temper
tantrum, the man began begging and pleading with God to open the door.
He clawed, scratched and kicked the door. But God did not open the
door.The man continued to kick and bang on God's door.
made great promises in hopes to barter his way into the house of the
Lord. He yelled at God. He threatened God with their very relationship!
And God watched with persistent love. Firm in His resolve, He did not
open the door.
In what seemed like an eternity to this man, he sat
down at the threshold exhausted and spent from his roller coaster ride
of emotions. Tears streaming down his face, and breathing heavily, he
decided it was time to rest. He came to the uncomfortable realization
that God was just not going to open this door for him no matter what he
did or said.
His actions, his words, his begging, pleading and
promises yielded him nothing in return.And God patiently watched with
all the love that only He cod give. This man will come to the correct,
divine and perfect solution in due time.As if a light Bulb flashed in
his head, the man stood up!
He took a deep breath and began to
smooth out his clothes. He took out a handkerchief and dried the tears
from his eyes. Carefully, he took hold of the glorious handle of God's
front door and gently turned the knob.The door was unlocked! With a
small push, he opened the door and peeked inside. His heart pounded
with curious excitement. Hello?'the man queried.
No one answered.
he slowly opened the door all the way and tiptoed inside the threshold
where he saw the most magnificent sight! Everything he had ever wanted
from God was there for him, unmoved and unspoiled; just waiting right
there for him! Oh how his heart sang!
The man thought to himself,
Why did God not answer my prayers? Why did I have to wait until I stood
before the kingdom of Heaven in order to obtain those gifts I've always
wanted and needed from Him?And the answer came to him as natural as
breath: The kingdom of God is inside you and all around you. Not in
mansions of wood and stone. Split a piece of wood and I am there.
Lift a stone and you will find Me.
I ever needed was within me all along! He thought.Do not look outside
yourself begging God to open the door for you. Open your own doors. Be
the co-creator you were designed to be. Choose your path knowing that
the choices you made were divinely laid before you.Go forth, co-create
and realize all the potential of The Creator.
His gifts are your
gifts just waiting to be shared.The story above is wonder full and
teaches all of us, religious or not to look deeper into our souls.If
those who lead you say to you, “See, the Kingdom is in the sky,” then
the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, “It is in
the sea,” then the fish will precede you. Rather, the Kingdom is inside
of you, and it is outside of you.
When you come to know
yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is
you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know
yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.

are grouped around the preponderant centre: the living being we call a
world comes into being; it is organised and slowly evolves toward the
Unity from which it has come.
On each of the planets, the law that
has given birth to a world repeats itself identically. The sun acts
toward the planets as Life-Unity acted toward the sun. The planet is
more material the farther away it is from the sun. At first fiery, then
gaseous, then liquid, some solid agglomerations appear on the bosom of
the liquid mass: the continents are born.
Then starts the
evolution of the planet toward its sun and planetary life is organised.
The active force here again prevails over the material, passive force.
The products that come into being on the planet follow the same phases
as those undergone in relation to the sun.
The continents in
solidifying condense in their bosom the fiery forces that primitively
formed the planet.This terrestrial Vital Force, which is nothing but an
emanation of the solar Vital Force, acts upon the earth, and the vital
rudiments develop in forming the lower metals.
Just as a world
evolves toward life of its universe in creating for itself a so, a
whole formed of all the planetary Soul's contained in it, likewise each
planet evolves toward the so of its world in creating its planetary so,
a whole formed of the Soul's this planet contains.
in the same way through the vegetable and, some thousands of years
later, the highest product of the continent appears: man who represents
the sun of animality as gold represents the sun of minerality. The
progressive law will rediscover itself in man as in all the rest of
Let us look back and we shall remember that at the moment
when a world was born, others already existed that had reached various
degrees of evolution toward Unity. The rest is that there were worlds
more or less old. Just as the planets have different ages, so are there
different ages in their products.
When a planet evolves for the
first time toward the first trace of the mineral kingdom, another one
older in its vital products has already evolved toward the first animal
kingdom, and another even older still has already evolved toward the
first human kingdom. Just as there are planets of several ages, there
are older or younger continents on the same planet. Each continent is
crowned by a race of men as each world is crowned by a sun.

We all know or knew someone like this!!
day, when I was in high school, I saw a kid from my class
was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was
carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, “Why Would anyone bring
home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.” I had quite
a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friend's
tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on.
was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him,
knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in
the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass
about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness
in his eyes my heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him as he
crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As
I handed him his glasses, I said, “Those guys are jerks.” They really
should get lives.
“He looked at me and said, “Hey thanks!”
was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed
real gratitude. I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he
lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had
never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before
now. I Would have never hung out with a private school kid before.
talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books. He turned out
to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play a little
football with my friends He said yes. We hung out all weekend and the
more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought
the same of him.
Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the
huge stack of books again. I stopped him and said, “Boy, you are gonna
really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!” He
just laughed and handed me half the books. Over the next few years,
Kyle and I became best friends.
When we were seniors we began to
think about college and work. Kyle decided on Sydney Uni and I was going to
to work in an apprenticeship. I knew that we Would always be friends, that the miles Would
never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor and I was going for
eventually Uni in Criminology.
Kyle was dux of our
year. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare
a speech for graduation. I was so glad it wasn’t me having to get up
there and speak Graduation day, I saw Kyle. He looked great. He was one
of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled
out and actually looked good in glasses. He had more dates than I had
and all the girls loved him. Boy, sometimes I was jealous!
Today was one of those days.
could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on
the back and said, “Hey, big guy, you’ll be great!” He looked at me
with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled. “Thanks,”
As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and
began Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it
through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings,
maybe a coach…but mostly your friends… I am here to tell all of you
that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them.
I am going to tell you a story.
I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the story of the
first day we met. He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He
talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to
do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and
gave me a little smile.
“Thankfully, I was saved.
saved me from doing the unspeakable.” I heard the gasp go through the
crowd as this handsome, proper boy told us all about his weakest
moment. I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same
grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize its depth.Never
underestimate the power of your actions.

'The Randomisation of
By Bishop Robert J Carnes
Evolution is a portion, a genesis if you will, of the theology of
really must have more faith in the powers of randomness than you Would
if you had faith in Creationism and Intelligent Design.Why?
theology of randomness is what most humanists and anyone who has jumped
on the bandwagon of the convoluted theory of evolution believes in. I
say convoluted due to the fact that many have distorted what the great
Charles Darwin once wrote, which was simply a theory on the
understanding of evolution based on the theory of natural selection and
not what has be disproportionately fed to us over the years that has
lead to the belief that this is how and where man was intimately born
from, a primordial type of soup.
That is, the universe is a random
formation and that we are nothing more than randomly proportioned
molecules and cells and bones and nerves and organs. The theology of
randomness goes like this:
Randomly, before the universe was
borne, random powers that we cannot comprehend but still must have
randomly come together, brought about the birth of the universe.
after the birth of the universe, forces came together randomly to
create such powers as the laws of thermodynamics, gravity, space and
time, and other portions of dimensions.
Randomly these forces
randomly came together to create randomly what Would be viewed as the
galactic cluster, as the galaxies, as the solar systems, and the sun
Randomly of course.
Randomly the world was created;
randomly powers came together out of sheer randomness and blind luck to
create the first life. This first life, randomly of course, moved
forward to create more and more species, randomly picked out of all
these different species so that some species Would live and other
species Would die, randomly of course, randomly based upon blind luck
of the life form itself and the surrounding elements.
Thus randomly, after millions of random and blind luck years came you
Randomly Sounds totally outlandish, doesn't it?
It's like winning the lottery 3576 times in a row, every time only
buying one ticket.
Pot luck don't you think?
Evolution, as we are taught, is the genesis of the theology of
randomness. This theology of randomness states that, because everything
came together through chance and blind luck, almost the luck of an
idiot, you and I were formed just out of accidental culmination's of
cells and genetic structures and DNA strands.
All random of course!
this theology of randomness, we are then told that, because we are
animals, because we are just happenstance that now brings me to write
this and for you to listen, nothing really matters after all, there is
no supreme moral compass and that while nothing is true and everything
is permitted, we can then draw some conclusions.
First we can
conclude, logically, that since we are random accidents, there really
is no beginning and end, there really is no need for love, for dignity,
for truth, for hope, because really, some human species are better able
to adapt than others.
As such the reason why, under the laws of
evolution and the theology of randomness, racism really isn't that bad
of a deal. I mean really, some people, we are nothing more than animals
so says the gospel of evolution and the theology of randomness, life
really holds little value eternally.
Abortion doesn't matter
either because everyone is just a humanoid piece of blob with no so.
Adultery isn't a problem, there are no ethics.
Eat. Drink. Be merry!
For Today we live, tomorrow we may die.
doesn't matter because, under the truth of evolution as the genesis of
the theology of randomness, there really is no point to anything. One
day our world will die, one day our solar system will die, some day our
galaxy will also die, our galactic cluster will die, our universe will
too also die.
We won't be remembered, we won't matter. It is all pointless.
I just cannot believe that.
firmly believe, as an intelligent and rational man, that after looking
at the gospel of evolution and the theology of randomness whose
disciples push and kick their theory of evolution into the face of
everyone who will listen, I firmly believe that there must be some type
of underlying Intelligent Designer out there.
There must be a
being or a force of some type that we interact with, be it known or
unknown, some believe that the being is Yahweh as shown in the Book of
Genesis, in the Torah, that created the universe. Others believe this
being, Yahweh, GOD or what ever you wish to call the entity or power
behind our being here on this planet we call earth, created us for a
reason, brought this world into being so that we (even after the Fall
of Adam and Eve) can have and look forward to a relationship with the
one some call GOD.
I believe that we have a distinct past, a
specific present where we choose to both honour and love others or to
turn our backs on them, and an empirical future where we, by our
choice, either find ourselves forever in the presence of the GOD of our
hearts or forever outside the presence of it.
I believe that through
Rosicrucian-ism we can have a relationship with the GOD of our hearts
because, where Adam, Eve and Jesus failed we can succeed. I trust in
the GOD of our hearts.
I trust in the powers that be.
not know the reasons and the why of the universe, I may not understand
each and every nuance of time and space. I don't have a complete answer
as to why good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to
good people; but, after years of struggle and intellectual juggling,
during which time I studied everything from atheism to Wicca, I proudly
say that I have come to the conclusion that there is not only some type
of Intelligent Designer or presence of a cosmic virtue, but that
Intelligent Designer or cosmic presence is within each and every one of
Of course I am sure some will call me names.
really doesn't matter, though; I have finally found the truth after
years of pushing the GOD of our hearts away. I realize that you can be
of Christian type values and an evolutionist and at the same time,
which ironically is never pointed out by anyone, because the two
doctrines were said to be incompatible to be bound together.
can if you wish believe in GOD through Christ or you can believe in the
theology of evolution the randomness or both or what ever you wish to
believe in. At the core, to believe in evolution, you can still believe
that Jesus Christ is who He says He is, because if man evolved, it could
have been a plan of the powers that be. It doesn't mean that because
there was no fall of Jesus Christ, then there is no need for the Christ
Jesus. It doesn't mean that if there is no need for Jesus Christ, then
evolution is correct.
There can be a place of compromise. You can be
either for the world and worship the world through evolution or for the
Creator of the world by the Word or both or any other type of belief
system, such as Rosicrucian-ism or paganism what does it matter?
me, I am glad that I saw the truth, and that all this fighting and
arguing over where did we come from is nothing more than a sand castle
waiting to be hit by the wave of truth, the wave of enlightenment.
Which, I might add, is at our very grasp if we really wish to see it
for ourselves, we just need to look internally for the answer, we all
have the power inside ourselves to the mysteries of our world.
I am glad that I now see the empirical truth of Evolution, Creationism
and Intelligent Design.
Now that I know the truth, I have been set free.
So now I ask how far down the rabbit hole do you wish to go?

10 Golden Lessons
new year is a time that inspires new hope in us all. It is an
opportunity to resolve and commit to live our lives in a way that
reflects our deepest values.The new year is a time where we are
reminded that we always have the opportunity to begin anew -- to make
an earnest, fresh start.The new year is a new canvas upon which we can
create images of peace and joy, harmony and inspiration.But even in our
rush to create something new, let's take time to remember with
gratitude the many moments that have come together and conspired to
bring us this new year. This new year is manifesting through
medium of all the years that have proceeded it. It is
and contains within all the thoughts and experiences that came before
it.So as we open our hearts to meet the new year and the abundant hope
it bears, let us all take a quiet moment and remember with gratitude
the gifts that the previous year has brought us. The many lessons it
has taught us. The good people it has introduced to us. The
beloved people who it took along with it. The bright moments
inspiration and even the dark moments where we realized our inner
strength. The moments of love, compassion, peace, and
The moments we wished would never end.
The ten lessons are:
1. A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
people don’t try new things because of their fear of failure. Failing
is not something to be afraid of. It is often the losers who learn more
about winning than the winners. Our mistakes always give us
opportunities to learn and grow.
2. Education is what remains
after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. 30 years from
now, you won’t possible remember what chapters you had in your science
book; you’d only remember what you learn on your way. Life lessons stay
with you forever. Real education starts from within.
3. I am
enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is
more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination
encircles the world. When you reflect on how far we humans have come
from the prehistoric caves to mind-blowing technological advancements,
you would feel the power of imagination. What we have now was built
from the imagination of our forefathers. What we will have in future
will be built from our imagination.
4. The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your
and uniqueness often depends on how well you hide your sources. You can
get inspired and influenced by other great people; but when you are on
stage with the whole world watching, you must become a unique,
individual force that learnt different values from different people.
The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is
able to receive. Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to
become a man of value. If you think of all the top people in the world,
they would have added something of value to the world. You must give in
order to take. When your purpose is contributing or adding value to the
world, you will be elevated to a higher level of living.
There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle;
you can live as if everything is a miracle. When nothing is a miracle,
you gain the power of doing anything you want and you have no limits.
And when everything is a miracle, you stop by to appreciate even the
smallest of beautiful things in the world. Thinking both ways will give
you a productive and happy life.
7. When I examine myself and
my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of
fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive
thinking. Dreaming about all the great things that you can achieve is
the key to a life filled with positivity. Let your imagination run
amuck and create the world that you would wish to be in.
order to be an immaculate member of a flock of sheep, one must above
all be a sheep oneself. If you want to become a very successful
entrepreneur, you must start a business right away. Wishing to become
one, but fearing the consequences will not help. The same applies to
everything – in order to win a game, one must above all play the game.
You have to learn the rest of the game. And then you have to play
better than anyone else. Learn the res of your game and start playing
it best. Keep competing like your life depended on it. And after a
while you will have no one else but you to compete against. At that
point, better your best.
10. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its
own reason for existing.
Intelligent people ask.
questioning yourself and others to find solutions. This will help gain
knowledge and analyze your growth in all walks of life.
"Life's little questions"
Could a religion exist
that had no believers?
Why are there so many
answers to Gods questions?
If life is a puzzle,
does it need to be completed?
So often times, it happens that we live our lives in
chains and never even know we have the key.
Can You Hear God?
We go through life sometimes thinking that God never
talks to us or he does not care about our lives. He has far bigger and
better things to do, or our loved ones that have past onto the Lord,
never contact us and we do not feel them around us.
sometimes we need to be still in our thoughts and our lives, and look
for the little things, as these could be the message that we are
Little things, such as a bird hovering over us
and landing on our head, or the butterfly swiftly fleeting around us to
catch our attention as we walk. Sometimes it may be just a phone call
with no-one at the other end, just as we were thinking of our loved
one, or as we were sad in our thoughts.
We are sometimes blind to Gods messages due to life's worries
getting in the way and drowning him out. We need to open not just our
hearts, but our minds and be still to receive some of the messages and
lessons from him and our loved ones.
I myself was in the same boat, as it can be said, I had an
emptiness inside of me for most of my life and had no idea of how to
fill it, and with what to fill it with.
I was searching most of
my life for something that God was trying to give to me all along, but
I just kept on missing his clues that he kept throwing me.
It was like drowning in an ocean, God kept sending me life
preservers, but I never reached out to get them, blinded by the waves
of emptiness and hurt.
It was not until I sat quietly and then I noticed the small
messages of what he had in store for me, the messages were right there
in front of me all the time.
All I had to do was look and read,
there was my future, he wanted me to follow, in my case it was in the
form of adverts in different magazines from times gone by, that kept
cropping up and a cryptic message sent from a member of The Order, to
where my life would travel towards his ultimate goal for me, Ministry
So from that day forward, I devoted my life to The Rosicrucian
Order and the Priesthood, to help others in their travels in life.
From time to time we, as Ministers, question Gods future for us, I remember just recently, questioning Gods plan for me.
I thought, was my life going in the correct direction?
had whispered to me that I should study further into Christian
Theology, and take my education on the subject onto bigger and better
So as and good child of the high and mighty, I did as I was
instructed, and attached myself to a local, but large Christian
denominations study center.
After sometime during these studies,
I started to question if it was the right direction to be heading, as
Rosicrucianism is not based on it.
So once more God had to give me another little nudge and hint, that I was traveling in the right direction, "his direction".
While at a leaders lecture of my Order, a quick and little
message was given, "the only way to God and Heaven is through the
teachings of Jesus Christ".
Now of the several people in the room, I was the only one to
understand this message, and to understand it was directed to me,
pointing me, to the direction he wished me to travel.
Now, I know what you are thinking at this very moment.
How did he know the message was for him?
the other members at the lecture including the lecturer, were not of
any Christian denomination and complained of why it was included in the
God's little message to me to take notice.
So as it has been stated before, watch, listen, for God's and any passed loved ones, little messages.
They may have been talking to you all this time, just you were not listening or watching for their signs.
Peace Profound My Friends
God versus science
‘Let me explain the problem science has with religion.’ The atheist
professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of
his new students to stand.
‘You’re a Christian, aren’t you, son?’
‘Yes sir, the student says.
‘So you believe in God?’
‘Is God good?’
‘Sure! God’s good.’
‘Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?’
‘Are you good or evil?’
‘The Bible says I’m evil.’
The professor grins knowingly. ‘Aha! The Bible!’ He considers for a moment.
‘Here’s one for you. Let’s say there’s a sick person over here and
you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?’
‘Yes sir, I would.’
‘So you’re good?!
‘I wouldn’t say that.’
‘But why not say that? You’d help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn’t.’
The student does not answer, so the professor continues. ‘He
doesn’t, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even
though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Hmmm?
Can you answer that one?’
The student remains silent.
‘No, you can’t, can you?’ the professor says. He takes a sip of
water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax.
‘Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?’
‘Er..yes,’ the student says.
‘Is Satan good?’
The student doesn’t hesitate on this one. ‘No.’
‘Then where does Satan come from?’
The student falters. ‘From God’
‘That’s right. God made Satan, didn’t he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?’
‘Evil’s everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything, correct?’
‘So who created evil?’ The professor continued, ‘If God created
everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to
the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil.’
Again, the student has no answer. ‘Is there sickness? Immorality?
Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this
The student squirms on his feet. ‘Yes.’
‘So who created them?’
The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his
question. ‘Who created them?’ There is still no answer.. Suddenly the
lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is
mesmerized. ‘Tell me,’ he continues onto another student. ‘Do you
believe in Jesus Christ, son?’
The student’s voice betrays him and cracks. ‘Yes, professor, I do.’
The old man stops pacing. ‘Science says you have five senses you use
to identify and observe the world around you.. Have you ever seen
‘No sir. I’ve never seen Him.’
‘Then tell us if you’ve ever heard your Jesus?’
‘No, sir, I have not.’
‘Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your
Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God
for that matter?’
‘No, sir, I’m afraid I haven’t.’
‘Yet you still believe in him?’
‘According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable
protocol, science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that,
‘Nothing,’ the student replies. ‘I only have my faith.’
‘Yes, faith,’ the professor repeats. ‘And that is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence, only faith.’
The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of His own. ‘Professor, is there such thing as heat?’
‘And is there such a thing as cold?’
‘Yes, son, there’s cold too.’
‘No sir, there isn’t.’
The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The
room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain. ‘You
can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited
heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don’t have anything
called ‘cold’. We can hit up to 458 degrees below zero, which is no
heat, but we can’t go any further after that.. There is no such thing
as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458
‘Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or
transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or
transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat.
You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of
heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units
because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the
absence of it.’
Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer.
‘What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?’
‘Yes,’ the professor replies without hesitation. ‘What is night if it isn’t darkness?’
‘You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the
absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright
light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have
nothing and it’s called darkness, isn’t it? That’s the meaning we use
to define the word.’
‘In reality, darkness isn’t. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?’
The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This
will be a good semester. ‘So what point are you making, young man?’
‘My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed.’
The professor’s face cannot hide his surprise this time. ‘Flawed? Can you explain how?’
‘You are working on the premise of duality,’ the student explains.
‘You argue that there is life and then there’s death; a good God and a
bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite,
something we can measure. Sir, science can’t even explain a thought.’
‘It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less
fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is
to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive
thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.’
‘Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?’
‘If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do.’
‘Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?’
The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester,indeed.
‘Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and
cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you
not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a
The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has subsided.
‘To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean.’
The student looks around the room. ‘Is there anyone in the class who
has ever seen the professor’s brain?’ The class breaks out into
‘Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor’s brain, felt
the professor’s brain, touched or smelt the professor’s brain? No one
appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of
empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no
brain, with all due respect, sir.’
‘So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your
lectures, sir?’ Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at
the student, his face unreadable.
Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. ‘I guess you’ll have to take them on faith.’
‘Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists
with life,’ the student continues. ‘Now, sir, is there such a thing as
Now uncertain, the professor responds, ‘Of course, there is. We see
it everyday It is in the daily example of man’s inhumanity to man. It
