Creator, Created, Interaction

From the book "Quantum Buddhism"


When we contemplate the nature of the universe, trying to understand it purely, without any reference to already existing dogmatic or scientific concept, we generally come with a first set of observations:




• Something exists, thus it is created
• Something created this, or it comes from somewhere
• There is interaction between creator and created


In most of the religious and scientific sets of beliefs, there is a trinity composed of a creative force, a created substance, and an interaction between the creative force and the created substance.


For the Hindu, the creator of all things is Brahma, all that is created is Vishnu, and the transforming force of the universe is Shiva. The Christians classified it in another way, but still we have the Father that created everything, the Christ who is the son and creation of God, and the Holy Spirit establishing a relationship between both Father and Son. The Egyptians have Osiris, Horus and Isis. The Jewish have Eheieh, Iah and Yahveh. It is possible to find the concept of a creator, of a created and of a relationship, in all original observation of the universe.


If you ask a scientist what created everything, where everything comes from, he will say “Energy, everything comes from energy”. Ok then, let’s ask the same scientist to describe all that is created. He’ll say “Matter, mass, that is all that is created”. Now, how about the interaction between energy and mass? Isn’t there movement, calculated in speed, and frequency, often represented by light? All right then! We have a creator, a created, and an interaction.


I can easily imagine a Christian priest making the sign of a cross, while saying “I bless you in the name of the Father, the Christ and the Holy Spirit”. The Hindu Brahman would bless us “in the name of the Brahma, the Vishnu and the Shiva”. You can as easily imagine a man with a white laboratory gown, basing everything he knows on the name of the Holy Trinity, blessing you “in the name of E equals M, C, square!!!”


Like every other religious system of beliefs, modern science has its Holy Trinity:


E = mc2


Please take a moment to contemplate it. Using their system of beliefs based on objective observation, the scientific community wishes your well-being, tends to your needs, try to heal your wounds, to alleviate your pain, to make your life easier. I see priests in big churches, faithful to a God with no name. This is quite appreciable.


If you can expand your perception, you can see that both the scientific and spiritual communities share the same goal. They are both in a quest for Truth, each using their own means. If we wish to find harmony in all these different approaches towards the concept of Truth, we should start by accepting all systems of beliefs without judgment. From there, we can delve into the system of belief we prefer and start our real quest for Truth.


We Buddhists don’t have a God that will come to save us, nor do we pray to a single great being “out there” hoping that it will come “in here” to answer our requests. We do not believe in the concept of separation of the “out there” from the “in here”. We believe that there is infinite potential everywhere, and that we are all responsible for our use of it. We don’t declare there is no God, nor that there is one. If there is a God, then it is all that there is; hence not giving it a definition similar to other religious systems.


However, we believe that everything comes from somewhere, that we describe as a Supreme Consciousness shining like an Infinite Light. This teaching was given by the Buddha, and is called the “Pure Land” teaching, where we dwell in this conscious infinite light, without asking it anything. Conscious Infinite Light in Sanskrit is called ‘Amitabha Buddha’. This would be our creative concept. Amitabha Buddha is not a human being that we pray, but a concept that we invoke in our mind, by reciting its name.


Pictured as a Buddha statue, Amitabha is always seconded by two Bodhisattvas, namely MahaSthamaPrapta on his left, and Avalokiteshwara on his right.


Our created concept would be great-powerful-wisdom, or Bodhisattva MahaSthamaPrapta. All that comes into existence is a form issued from the conscious knowledge of that form. Both action and shape are the result of the same quantum wave function. Thus, power and wisdom brought together in a great unified concept, we get MahaSthamaPrapta.


Our interaction concept would be the Lord of the Beholding Eye, or Bodhisattva Avalokiteshwara. This is the “observer” that experiences life. It is the Supreme Self expressed in all forms, conscious that it is observing itself, from its creator aspect looking towards its created aspect. This Bodhisattva is often prayed in religious forms like if it was a real human being. However, it remains the concept of the interaction between the creative and created concepts. It is both the actor and the object of the action; the observer and the object of observation. From this concept, Avalokiteshwara was named ‘the Bodhisattva of compassion’, working to save all living beings. It represents the highest point in our individual consciousness, where we merge back with the single united ALL consciousness.

Πριγκιπικός Γάμος – η Αποθέωση της Βλακείας

Από τον Σουάμι Σεβαράτνα
Δεν έχει πάψει ποτέ να με κατα-πλήσσει η βλακεία των ανθρώπων. Αναφέρομαι στον "γάμο της χρονιάς" του "Πρίγκιπα" Ουίλιαμ και της "Δούκισσας" Κάθριν. Από πού να ξεκινήσω και πού να τελειώσω. Ο χαρακτηρισμός «βλακεία» αναφέρεται σχεδόν αποκλειστικά στο πλήθος και όχι στους γόνους της βασιλικής οικογένειας (γι αυτούς ισχύουν άλλοι χαρακτηρισμοί). Όταν υφίστανται τις συνέπειες της βλακείας τους όμως, βελάζουν σαν πρόβατα στη στάνη.


Τα σκοτεινά σενάρια εξουσίας που εξυφαίνονται στην πλάτη τους και τους ρουφάνε την ενέργεια χρειάζονται μια βάση για να πατήσουν. Αυτή η βάση είναι η ανθρώπινη βλακεία. Ένα εκατομμύριο άτομα πλημμύρισαν το Λονδίνο για να δουν από κοντά το «μεγάλο» γεγονός και δυο δισεκατομμύρια από την τηλεόραση. Πράγμα που σημαίνει ότι δεν είχαν κάτι καλύτερο να κάνουν. Και βέβαια βλάκες με περικεφαλαία είναι εκείνοι που καταξοδεύτηκαν ταξιδεύοντας από την άλλη άκρη του Ατλαντικού για να μη χάσουν το μεγάλο γεγονός. Αισθάνομαι αποτροπιασμό. Κεντρικό θέμα στις ειδήσεις των περισσότερων καναλιών… Έλεος!!!


Η βασιλεία σήμερα (κι εννοώ τις χώρες της Ευρώπης που διατηρούν ακόμη τον θεσμό) είναι απογυμνωμένη από κάθε ουσιαστική εξουσία στα δρώμενα μιας χώρας. Υπάρχει απλώς για να υπάρχει. Και πώς απαντιέται το ερώτημα «γιατί να υπάρχει, αφού δεν έχει κανένα ρόλο στις κυβερνητικές αποφάσεις;» Μην κάνετε τον κόπο να ψάξετε για απάντηση, δεν θα βρείτε εύκολα κάτι ικανοποιητικό…


Το κύριο ζήτημα θεωρώ ότι είναι το πώς βλέπει ο μέσος αφελής άνθρωπος αυτόν τον θεσμό της βασιλείας. Ο άνθρωπος-πρόβατο θεωρεί δεδομένο ότι οι εστεμμένοι είναι κάτι διαφορετικό και πολύ ανώτερο από τον ίδιο. Κάτι βέβαια που δεν προκύπτει από πουθενά. Και τι να πει κανείς για τη γελοιότητα περί «γαλαζοαίματων», ένα μύθο που καλλιεργήθηκε έντεχνα (από ποιους άραγε) με αποδέκτες τους αφελείς υπηκόους. Αυτός ο επιθετικός προσδιορισμός του γαλαζοαίματου παρόλα αυτά άντεξε στο χρόνο, με αποτέλεσμα ακόμη και σήμερα να τον χρησιμοποιούμε όταν αναφερόμαστε σ’ένα μέλος βασιλικής οικογένειας.


Τι θα πει γαλαζοαίματος; Ότι έχει αίμα χρώματος μπλε; Απίθανο… Ακόμα όμως κι αν αυτό ήταν αλήθεια, από πού προκύπτει ότι κάποιος με μπλε αίμα (Θεέ μου συγχώρα με) είναι ικανότερος να σε διοικήσει από κάποιον με κόκκινο αίμα; Γιατί το μπλε αίμα είναι ανώτερο από το κόκκινο;


Για να μην παρεξηγηθω, ο θεσμός της βασιλείας δεν είναι απαραίτητα κακός. Αυτό που υποφέρει βάναυσα εδώ είναι η λογική. Αν ένας άνθρωπος που θέλει να άρχει ενός λαού κι έχει τρόπο να μας πείσει ότι είναι ΙΚΑΝΟΣ και ΕΝΤΙΜΟΣ, δεν έχω καμμιά απολύτως αντίρρηση, ίσα-ίσα θα ήταν αυτό που θα με κάλυπτε ως πολίτη. Αυτό που χρειαζόμαστε είναι έναν άνθρωπο (όχι απαραίτητα 300 ανόητους εγωπαθείς) που δεν θα απολαμβάνει ειδικά προνόμια (και ειδικά πλούτου) επειδή είναι βασιλιάς.


Ένας τέτοιος άνθρωπος θα άξιζε κάθε τιμής. Θα μπορούσα να γεμίσω ένα ολόκληρο βιβλιο περιγράφοντας με λεπτομέρειες πώς θα έπρεπε να ζει και να ενεργεί ο τέλειος ηγέτης. Βασικό του χαρακτηριστικό θα ήταν πάντως το ότι θα έθετε το συμφέρον των υπηκόων του πάνω από το δικό του. Τέτοιοι άνθρωποι είμαι βέβαιος ότι υπάρχουν σε κάθε χώρα, αλλά κάτω από τις παρούσες συνθήκες δεν έχουν καμμιά διάθεση να αναλάβουν τέτοιο ρόλο.


Τα καλά νέα είναι ότι έρχονται μεγάλες αλλαγές στο σύντομο μέλλον που θα βάλουν (μετά από χιλιετηρίδες Σκοτεινής Εξουσίας) τα πράγματα στη θέση τους στο τεράστιο ζήτημα της εξουσίας, όπου όλα τα απολιθώματα της ιστορίας θα εκπέσουν από τη θέση τους, ώστε να δημιουργηθεί χώρος για ικανές και έντιμες κυβερνήσεις που θα μας οδηγήσουν με τη βοήθεια των συμμάχων μας από το Διάστημα καθώς και το εσωτερικό της Γης (την Αγκάρθα) με ασφάλεια στη Χρυσή Εποχή.

Reincarnation - Did The Church Suppress It?

by Joseph P. Gudel, Robert M. Bowman, Jr., and Dan R. Schlesinger
Toward the beginning of this century belief in reincarnation was restricted to such small groups as the Unity School of Christianity, the Theosophical Society, and Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment. By the 1980s, however, not only had these groups gained well over a million followers, but celebrities such as Jeanne Dixon and Shirley MacLaine had popularized reincarnation for the masses. While 50 years ago relatively few Americans believed in reincarnation, today roughly one-fourth of all Americans accept it, along with about one-half of the world population.


Virtually all modern proponents of reincarnation in the West claim that is in complete harmony with the true spirit of Christianity. The early church taught reincarnation, until the sixth century when it was suppressed at a church council.


Reincarnation Defined
The doctrine of reincarnation derives from antiquity, originating in the East, but also found in ancient Greece. It "teaches that the soul enters this life, not as a fresh creation, but after a long course of previous existences on this earth and elsewhere . . . and that it is on its way to future transformations which it is now shaping for itself."


According to the Eastern concept of reincarnation, man depending on his deeds in his previous existence can come back in any type of life form, including various animals, as well as human form. Reincarnationists in the West, however, generally hold that men and women can be reincarnated only as human beings. Western reincarnationists often refer to the Eastern view as "transmigration" and to the Western view as "reincarnation." Traditionally, though, the terms "transmigration," "reincarnation," and "metempsychosis" have been used as synonyms. On the other hand, reincarnation is to be distinguished from preexistence of souls. While all those who believe in reincarnation must believe that the reincarnated souls preexisted, not all who adhere to preexistence of souls accept reincarnation. A modern example would be the Mormons.


The underlying, often unspoken assumption of reincarnation is "monism," the belief that only one reality exists. Since this means that all things are part of one essential reality, there is no real distinction between God, the world, and people -- they are all "one." In this system of thought "God" is regarded, not as a personal Creator, but as an impersonal force or consciousness of which we are all part. Thus, Shirley MacLaine states that "God" is "the word we use for a concept of incredibly complex spiritual energies," and suggests that "the tragedy of the human race was that we had forgotten that we were each Divine." A soul's reincarnations, then, have classically been understood as a journey from God to God, the goal being reabsorption into the One.

Law of Attraction - Start with Something Small

By Robert Anthony


If you have never had $50,000 in your life at one time, don't try to manifest $50,000. Your subconscious will set up too much resistance. If you never made more than $30,000, don't go after $60,000.


If you haven't had a date in 3 years, don't try to attract your “ideal mate”. You may have to go through a few “ideal mates” before you are ready to receive the one that is “ideal” for you.


So, start small. For instance, if you have a lot of bills that add up to $10,000, don't go after $10,000. Start by manifesting an amount that is just a little beyond your comfort zone. If right now $1,000 seems like a lot to you, then go for $500. When you manifest $500, go for $1,000, etc. until you manifest the $10,000.


What you want more than anything else is to have a Sucess Experience. Once you have this, the next thing, and then the next thing, etc. gets easier and easier. So, start off with something that is just a little out of your comfort zone and let that be your first success experience.


When that happens, Celebrate! Do something to celebrate your success! That will impress your subconscious even deeper that you just had a positive, successful manifestation experience. It makes the next thing you wish to manifest much easier.


In regard to money, I find with many of my clients that it is a lot easier for them to manifest what the money will buy rather than the money itself. The reason is we have so many money issues that oftentimes they keep us from manifesting, because we have not resolved them yet.


In most cases, you will find it easier to manifest what you want to buy with the money. Usually, there is no resistance when you focus on an object, event or experience, rather than “money” itself. So, if you are struggling with money this is often an easier way to start.

Asceticism

http://www.themystica.com/mystica/articles/a/asceticism.htm


Asceticism is the practice of austere self-discipline, voluntary undertaken, in order to achieve a higher or spiritual ideal. 

The term is derived from the Greek ‘ασκείν’, which in the time of Homer meant, "to practice an art or skill." Later in Greece the term took on a broader meaning of "exercise"; so the early ascetics were skilled in athletics and the military arts. 



The various Greek philosophical schools, such as the Pythagoreans, Stoics, Sophists, and Cynics, used asceticism as a system of moral practices to free men of vices. Plato viewed asceticism as a means of not only conditioning the body but also conditioning it up to a point at which the soul could be free. The term seemed to have come into Christian and Western thought through the Hellenistic-Jewish philosopher Philo.


The above is the Western version of the development of asceticism, however, asceticism has Eastern roots too. The earliest exponents of asceticism were the Jain Buddhists whose religious teachings influenced the Essenes. Jain Buddhist monks had penetrated the courts of Syria, Egypt, Macedonia, and Epirus by the 4th century BC. They claimed to have gained magical abilities through self-denial.


One of the original reasons for practicing austere self-denial was man's desire to be able to give birth. Oriental myths said the first creator-gods acquire their ability to produce living things by "practicing fierce asceticism for ten thousand years." Although men were never able to acquire the female ability to give birth, they have claimed the abilities to fly, walk on water, heal the lame and blind, and perform other miracles.


Asceticism in its broadest sense is man's practice of renunciation of his physical self and world in order to attain a higher ideal or spiritual good; in summary, it's the renunciation of the physical, which has been deemed of lesser worth, for the spiritual. This has been the teaching of most cultural and almost explicitly all religious training. It is true almost every society from the primitive to the most sophisticated teach some type of asceticism to teach self-control that is expected from its members, without which the society could not exist.


The need for such social asceticism can readily be recognized, although members of such societies may complain such asceticism may be too stern or lack at times. And, occasionally during these times is when social and religious asceticism tend to intermix. Such conjunctures can cause conflicts. Many such conflicts have occurred within the Christian church and
a majority of them focused upon sexual activity of the members. 



Many of the medieval clergy became overzealous on this issue. It was reasoned that the reason man fell from grace was because of woman, therefore, man could only return to grace by renouncing woman. Sexuality was declared to be the worst of all heresies and sins, since it was St. Augustine who said all men were conceived in sin, the effect of original sin.


However, let not the reader forget that the church that is now condemning sexuality as the worst of all sins, several centuries earlier condemned the Gnostics as heretics for their refusal to bear children. One of the Orthodox Church's charges against the austere Gnostic sects was that they practiced almost total monasticism, but this was when the church was still in its infancy and needed members. Also, St. Augustine, one of the church's leading exponents against sexuality, was a member of the Gnostic Manichaens before becoming a Christian.


Protestant theologians shared similar views too. Calvin said that, because of its origin in sexuality and in a woman's body, every child was "defiled and polluted" in God's sight, even before it saw the light of day; a newborn infant is a "seed-bed of sin and therefore cannot but be odious and abominable to God." When Martin Luther married an ex-nun he still did not hold sex in a high regard. "Had God consulted me on the matter, I would have advised him to continue the generation of the species by fashioning them out of clay."


Here lies the hidden component of asceticism, the arrogance in the idea that man can instruct God in what he should do, which leads many people to think they are governed by a "man-made god." Those sharing this latter conception usually are not misled by the unnatural humility of asceticism. "Nothing is prouder than the humility of the ascetic of the other-worldly spirit that proclaims itself superior to the whole natural world, or than the mysticism that renounces the self only to commune with God himself." True humility is the desire to unite with and be within the whole of things but not above it.


Asceticism is not to be completely condemned. As previously mentioned every society has taught some form of asceticism to promote self-control within its members. Such social asceticism is justified for social existence. But, the key to its validity is in its function; to teach self-control without which there could be no social structure. This is far different than people practicing asceticism in order to commune with God, or condemning sexuality because they believe it to be sinful. If their reasoning is questioned it soon becomes fallacious or nonexistent. It soon becomes obvious for the individual wishing only to commune with God gains self-satisfaction rather than his proposed goal of the denial of self. The one who proclaims the sinfulness of sexuality seemed not to have considered the fact that God created sexual propagation for the continuation of people. Whether one includes God within this conclusion or not seems insignificant, to desire to eliminate sexual propagation because it is sinful seems to erroneously deny the fact of its necessity. Also denied are the natural love between mother and child, husband and wife, lovers, and the pleasure of sexual activity in general.

Η Δύναμη του να Νιώθεις Καλά Τώρα

Λεγόμαστε Άμπραχαμ, και σας μιλάμε από την Άυλη διάσταση. Φυσικά, πρέπει να καταλάβετε ότι κι εσείς προέρχεστε από την Άυλη διάσταση. Έτσι, δεν είμαστε τόσο διαφορετικοί μεταξύ μας. Ο υλικός κόσμος σας έχει προέλθει από την προβολή του Άυλου. Στην πραγματικότητα, εσείς και ο φυσικός κόσμος σας είστε προεκτάσεις της Άυλης Πρωταρχικής Ενέργειας.

Σε αυτό το Άυλο βασίλειο, δεν χρησιμοποιούμε λέξεις, γιατί δεν χρειαζόμαστε γλώσσα. Επίσης δεν έχουμε γλώσσες με τις οποίες να μιλάμε ή αυτιά με τα οποία να ακούμε, παρόλο που επικοινωνούμε τέλεια μεταξύ μας. Η Άυλη γλώσσα μας είναι μια γλώσσα δονήσεων, και οι Άυλες κοινότητές μας, ή οικογένειες, είναι οικογένειες πρόθεσης. Με άλλα λόγια, εκπέμπουμε αυτό που είμαστε, ως δόνηση, και άλλοι με παρόμοια πρόθεση συγκεντρώνονται. Αυτό ισχύει επίσης και στον υλικό κόσμο σας, αν και οι περισσότεροι από σας έχετε ξεχάσει ότι αυτό είναι έτσι.

Ο Άμπραχαμ είναι μια οικογένεια Άυλων Όντων που μαζεύτηκε φυσιολογικά μέσω της ισχυρής πρόθεσής μας να θυμίσουμε σε σας, τις υλικές προεκτάσεις μας, τους Νόμους του Σύμπαντος που κυβερνούν όλα τα πράγματα. Είναι πρόθεσή μας να σας βοηθήσουμε να θυμηθείτε ότι είστε προεκτάσεις της Πρωταρχικής Ενέργειας, ότι είστε ευλογημένες, αγαπημένες Υπάρξεις. Και ότι έχετε έρθει σ’αυτή την υλική χωρο-χρονική πραγματικότητα για να δημιουργήσετε με χαρά.

Όλοι όσοι είναι υλικά εστιασμένοι έχουν Άυλα ομόλογα. Δεν υπάρχει καμμιά εξαίρεση σ’αυτό. Όλοι όσοι είναι υλικά εστιασμένοι έχουν πρόσβαση στην ευρύτερη προοπτική αυτού που είναι Άυλο. Δεν υπάρχει καμμιά εξαίρεση σ’αυτό. Αλλά οι περισσότερες υλικές Υπάρξεις έχουν τόσο αποσπασθεί εξ αιτίας της υλικής φύσης του πλανήτη σας, ώστε έχουν αναπτύξει ισχυρά σχήματα αντίστασης που ακυρώνουν την καθαρή σύνδεσή σας με την Πηγή σας. Πρόθεσή μας είναι να βοηθήσουμε εκείνους που επιζητούν να θυμηθούν αυτή τη σύνδεση.

Ενώ όλοι οι υλικοί άνθρωποι έχουν πρόσβαση στην καθαρή επικοινωνία με το Άυλο, οι περισσότεροι δεν έχουν συνειδητά επίγνωση γι αυτό. Και συχνά, ακόμη κι όταν έχετε επίγνωση ότι αυτό είναι δυνατόν, διατηρείτε σκεπτικιστικές συνήθειες που ενεργούν ως αντίσταση εμποδίζοντας την ικανότητά σας για συνειδητή αλληλεπίδραση.

Ωστόσο, σε ορισμένες περιπτώσεις, ανοίγει ένα καθαρό κανάλι επικοινωνίας και είμαστε σε θέση να μεταφέουμε την κατανόησή μας, δονητικά, σε κάποιον που να μπορεί καθαρά να τη λάβει και να τη μεταφράσει. Και αυτό είναι που συμβαίνει εδώ μέσω της Εσθήρ. Προσφέρουμε τη γνώση μας, δονητικά, με έναν τρόπο που μοιάζει  με αυτό που καταλαβαίνετε ως ραδιοκύματα, και η Εσθήρ λαμβάνει αυτές τις δονήσεις και τις μεταφράζει στο υλικό λεκτικό ισοδύναμο. Δεν υπάρχουν, ωστόσο, επαρκείς υλικές λέξεις για να μεταφέρουν την ικανοποίηση και τη χαρά μας για το ότι είμαστε σε θέση να προσφέρουμε τη γνώση μας σε σας, με αυτόν τον τρόπο, αυτή τη χρονική στιγμή.

Είναι ισχυρή επιθυμία μας να είστε ευχαριστημένοι εκεί που είστε τώρα ακριβώς, αυτή τη στιγμή – όπου κι αν είστε. Καταλαβαίνουμε πόσο παράξενα μπορεί να ηχούν σε σας αυτές οι λέξεις, αν βρίσκεστε σ’ένα σημείο που φαίνεται να είναι μακρυά από εκεί που θέλετε να είστε. Αλλά, η απόλυτη υπόσχεσή μας προς εσάς είναι, ότι όταν κατανοήσετε τη δύναμη του να νιώθετε καλά τώρα, ό,τι κι αν συμβαίνει, θα κρατάτε το κλειδί για την επίτευξη ο,τιδήποτε θέλετε.

Αυτές οι σελίδες έχουν ειδικά γραφτεί για να σας δώσουν μια καλύτερη κατανόηση του εαυτού σας καθώς κι όλων των άλλων γύρω σας, και μπορεί να βρείτε κάποια από αυτά χρήσιμα, αλλά οι λέξεις πραγματικά δεν διδάσκουν. Η αληθινή γνώση σας προέρχεται από την εμπειρία της ίδιας σας της ζωής. Κι  ενώ θα είστε ένας συνεχής συλλέκτης εμπειρίας και γνώσης, η ζωή σας δεν είναι μόνο αυτό – έχει να κάνει με εκπλήρωση, ικανοποίηση και χαρά. Η ζωή σας έχει να κάνει με τη συνεχή έκφραση αυτού που πραγματικά είστε.

Heaven's Timetable Must Now Be Honored

by Sheldan Nidle


Selamat Gajun! We return! Much has happened since we last spoke to you. As is now very apparent, the world is moving ever deeper into change on every level. All of you know what has happened in Japan. This dramatic event is the result of both the energies of Mother Nature and of the dark. In March of this year, Mother Nature began a process to lift the lost continent of Lemuria from the Pacific Ocean floor, the first step of which was the recent massive earthquake off the coast of northern Japan. Another purpose of this earthquake is to change the energies surrounding the Japanese home islands. This prepares the area around Japan to be lifted up, creating a quite different surface configuration for the Japanese island group. This goal will eventually lead to further quakes to the south of Japan. All these geophysical events pertain also to the changing of Earth's declination and her overall surface reconfiguration. Although the Japan quake was initiated by Mother Earth, the aftershocks were aggravated or created by devices belonging to the dark cabal.


Since the end of the 1990s, we have been working with our Earth allies to end the various forms of dark interference in many aspects of Mother Earth's and your ascension process. We are keenly aware that the incremental containment policy laid out for us has appeared to take an inordinately long time to yield results that are visible to you, and that frustrations are running high among those of you who long to see the start of a new era for your beautiful planet. We share your concerns, and are increasing the pressure upon our Earth allies every day to complete the transfers of governmental power and to authorize the release of the long-promised prosperity funds. Meetings between us focus increasingly on the urgency of the situation and we are ready to take certain actions to push through these vital measures, but naturally we cannot reveal details of these actions to you at this time.


We have often mentioned to you the existence of a cut-off date, at which point the management of Earth's societal changes is transferred from our Earth allies to us. We desire to avoid this action-of-last-resort and accordingly have exhorted our Earth allies to stop “dragging their heels”! Their preferred timetable is no longer relevant and does not conform to the one laid out in Heaven's decrees. It is Heaven's timetable that must now be honored. Many things on many levels are coming to a head. Mother Earth needs your support in moving forward with her changes. Your many-leveled physical and spiritual changes are also crying out for more enhanced methods of healing assistance than are available to you at present. We want to assure you that we are working hard with our Earth allies to see that the dark's capabilities to run interference on you are neutralized.


In all matters concerning this first contact mission to Earth we are guided by Heaven's Hierarchies. We are aware that many of you question the fact that things seem to be taking so long while so many suffer. Know that we too share your desire to resolve all the problems facing you and Mother Earth but it is important to remember that there is a wider framework here. This concerns the primary goal of this particular Creation: the reconciliation of the dark with the Light. What is happening on Planet Earth is not just another battle between these age-old adversaries (the Light and the dark) but the bringing together into unity of these opposing forces in order to create a Greater Light. This Greater Light is to be the prime mover for carrying out the divine plan in the second half of this particular Creation.

Today, we talked about developments taking place on your world. Earth is changing and these changes are set to accelerate even further in the months ahead. It is important for you to be prepared for this and to use your knowledge of what is happening to be a source of stability and reassurance for your communities. Great change is almost upon you! Know, dear Ones, in your Heart of Hearts that the countless Supply and never-ending Prosperity of Heaven are indeed Yours! So Be It! Selamat Gajun! Selamat Ja! (Sirian for Be One and Be in Joy!)

Outline of Abraham–Hicks' Teachings

Esther Hicks says that non-physical entities called Abraham speak through her, and that her teachings (referred to as Abraham–Hicks teachings) are based on this experience. The basic tenets of the teachings include that we create our own reality through our thoughts, that our emotions are constantly guiding us toward where we want to go, and that life is supposed to be fun. 


The essence of Abraham–Hicks' teachings since 1986 has been presented as follows:


  • You are a physical extension of that which is non-physical.
  • You are here in this body because you chose to be here.
  • The basis of your life is freedom; the purpose of your life is joy.
  • You are a creator; you create with your every thought.
  • Anything that you can imagine is yours to be or do or have.
  • You are choosing your creations as you are choosing your thoughts.
  • The Universe adores you, for it knows your broadest intentions.
  • Relax into your natural well-being. All is well.
  • You are a creator of thoughtways on your unique path of joy.
  • Actions to be taken and money to be exchanged are by-products of your focus on joy.
  • You may appropriately depart your body without illness or pain.
  • You cannot die; you are everlasting life.

A large part of their work centers around the Law of Attraction, a concept written about in the early 1900s by William Walker Atkinson (1862–1932) in many of his books, including "Thought Vibration" or the "Law of Attraction in the Thought World" (1906).






Swami Sevaratna's note: I consider William Walker Atkinson one of the most important thinkers of the 20th century. He made extensive use of pseudonyms, as Theron Q. Dumont and Yogi Ramacharaka. I started Yoga 38 years ago with the help of one of his books. 


Here are some of them under the name Yogi Ramacharaka:
  • A Series of Lessons in Raja Yoga
  • Advanced Course in Yogi Philosophy and Oriental Occultism
  • Hatha Yoga
  • The Hindu Yogi Science of Breath


And under the name of Theron Q. Dumont:
  • Personal Magnetism


If you are interested in any or all of the above mentioned books sent me an email at dimitriosdourvaris@yahoo.com and I'll be glad to sent them to you.

Reject Religion!

I have grown to despise religion. Or at the least, what it has become. That’s what most people have embraced when they consider themselves Christians. They have become religious! They go to church, wear the tee-shirts, place the little fish symbol on the back of their cars, and even get married in churches. For many, however, they are nothing more than just religious. There is nothing real about the faith they claim to have. There is nothing really different about their lives as a result of being religious. Yet they continue to embrace the very thing that has nothing to offer. Religion! One very real question might be then what does matter? I mean if religion is a waste of time, then what is it that would be worth pursuing? 


I remember once being in Jacksonville Florida during the Super Bowl. I was walking down the street when I noticed this guy walking down the street towards me. He wore a black t-shirt with big white leters that read simply….Reject Religion! I was offended by this because I had always considered myself to be a religious man. In fact, the closer he came the more I began to think that he ought to be told how heritical his shirt was. Then, out of no where, someone called his name. He turned to speak with a friend and I saw the back of his shirt which read….Embrace Christ! That moment, I would discover later, would literally change my life. As I began to process what I had just read on the shirt of someone who got it, I realized how long I had been living my life without a clue. The Apostle Paul once wrote in Colossions 2:8 says, “see to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy, empty deception, or the traditions of men…rather than according to Christ“. Consider that for a moment. Held captive by the things of men…that’s what religion has to offer. On the other hand, embracing the very real and authentic power of Christ….now that’s life changing. Reject Religion ~ Embrace Christ!

Ascension: Earth Cleansing

Source: http://www.spiritual-experiences.com
We have vilified the process of listening to our inner selves to the point that we've nearly become deaf. I am no different. I have to be shown the same thing a hundred times and a dozen different ways before I start to trust what I see. So I am writing this article to you based on something I've seen over and over and it has to do with earth cleansing.


This article requires a bit of background, so I'd like to start with why we are here, which relates to the cleansing. We are here because we chose to be here. The lower astral planes are much harder to learn soul lessons due to their easy nature, and so we descend in order to accelerate our own ascension process. Only a few remember making this choice, but we all have.


We live on this thing called Earth and play out our remembering process in the vibrationally densest ways possible. Most of us don't know that the Earth (Gaia), in its own way, is a sentient being. Many cultures understand this, but few in ours do. This Being has allowed its use by mankind, so that its inhabitants could maximize the accelerated experience available on the physical plane. This was not victimization, but an agreement at the highest level. We feel that we have wronged this planet, and on the surface we have, but we all chose our own experiences for maximum growth, and Gaia's choice is no different.


The earth is no different than our bodies. Through life experience, we absorb the energies around us. Because of human activity (generally quite coarse), the earth has absorbed this energy, and continues to do so at an increasing rate. This energy builds up in its aura just as our experiences build up in ours, and we know blocks and disease can occur from this. The agreement between the two (Gaia and Mankind) is that earth itself is entitled to its own ascension and cleansing process, regardless if we are ready or not as a race.


Earth cleansings are a major event. Faults buckles, which triggers both tidal waves and volcanic eruptions along the Ring of Fire. The vibrations during this process in the subtle plane are horrendous. And while the destruction in earth's past was smaller and more localized due to population, this time, it is global. Previous localized destruction was caused by tens of thousands of humans, whereas billions will cause this global destruction. History is speckled with cleansing stories such as Atlantis, Sodom and Gomorrah, and the story of Noah's Ark.


Despite religious dogma, this is not punishment but Universal Law (or if you were a Christian, you would say, "God's law.") If we were meant to perish or ascend for all eternity during each cleansing, then all souls would already exist in "heaven or hell" from past cleansings, but the fact is, the cycle goes onward still. An example of this would be the cleansing that is rumored to have happened with Noah. "And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.... ~Genesis 6:13-14." This is a prime example of a negative build up of energies resulting in an earth cleansing.


I do not abide by fear. All that I have seen from fear is that it is the opposite of love. Man has interpreted the natural cleansing cycle of old to instill fear in his fellow man, so that he can keep him under control. If it really was just Noah and a few relatives (minus the animals of course), then where do you think the current six billion plus souls came from? I guarantee you that many of the souls present now are the same souls from back then. We have the rest of eternity to remember our godliness and if we go astray, another chance is always presented, and of course, other cleansings.


The description I give is what I've seen. Additionally, I was told that immediately following the cleansing there would be 1,000 years of peace. This 1,000 year period of peace (or Judgment as most religions would term it) is also mentioned in the bible (..."and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." Revelation 20:4.)


So, what are you to do with this information? Well, whatever you like. Man's greatest tool has always been free will. Don't forget that this is just a probable future. If the masses were to suddenly decide that the current way of living was not acceptable, then the energies would change, and so would the outcome. Do I see this happening? No, I don't. But the choice always exists. Now, as far as what I'm doing personally, I will share that. I know I came here with purpose and because of my own choice. I can fritter away my time, or go inward and ask why. After having done so, I know that it is to accelerate my remembering process so that I can ascend to a higher plane.


This is first grade. We can disregard the information in first grade, and keep repeating it over and over again until we get it or we can learn (or remember) the necessary information, bless it for its immensely important lessons, and move on. Here we are to learn to love our fellow man, ourselves, and to cherish the gifts given to us (earth, and each other). If we can't do this collectively, then we can do it individually. We can learn to see through the illusion of ego, which causes all of our pain and keeps us from truly loving others and ourselves. We can work out our karmic debt and dissolve inner blocks that inhibit the witnessing of our spiritual greatness. There is much to do, if we chose.


As far as when this might happen. Does that matter? If you don't die from this, you'll die from something else. The point of this article isn't to hurry you through the process of awakening, but to remind you of your own decision to come here, and its purpose. Complacency happens to us all. We shouldn't require a terminal illness, or a collapsing world to remind us of this, but unfortunately, this is often the case for most of us.

Natural State of Being is one of Peaceful Co-Existence

SaLuSa 22-April-2011
Now that you have grasped the fact that you wield immense power, we see the beginnings of many movements that will set you on course for changes in the way in which you are governed. The authorities have long been scared of your collective intent to get things done as you desire. 


That has been evident for many, many years, as even peaceful demonstrations have been stopped. Today you have finally concluded that unless you take action yourselves, you are unlikely to see the fulfilment of your demands. Peace has been high on your agenda for such a long time, but ignored by the dark Ones who use wars to hold you back. Now that your patience has reached the end, the levels of consciousness are such that the energy is stirring people who are reaching breaking point. Something must happen very soon, and our backing will be behind you as the end of all wars and hostilities must take place. There is no place in the future for such low energies, and certainly not in the higher vibrations, and the truth is that they cannot exist within them. With the monies and energy wasted upon wars, you could instead have had a happy and contented world full of people living in safety and sharing its wealth. That experience will soon become your reality, as the cleansing removes the lower energies that have fed the monster of war.


Humans are prone to emotional outbursts, but their natural state of being is one of peaceful co-existence. It is the dark Ones that have perpetuated a state of separateness and divided the people against each other. Now you are realising how you have been fooled for eons of time, and have realised that enemies have been made where none have existed previously. At your levels you have taken the initiative and are “mending fences”, and worldwide travel has opened your eyes to how easy it is to get on with each other. Tolerance of your differences has overcome barriers created by cultural differences and religious beliefs. For many judgement has been set aside, particularly where they realise that through repeated incarnations they have experienced life in many different countries. Dear Ones, what is it but life’s opportunities to enable a coming together of all people, as they realise the Oneness of everything. As individuals you cannot take a quantum leap into the higher dimensions unless you have overcame prejudice and judgement, and can hold others in the Love and Light.


Ascension is not a give-away, but something that is earnt through your application of Universal Laws. With it comes a refining of your energies, and you are finally ready to leave vibrational levels that no longer fulfil your needs. It is a natural progression that comes to those who seek upliftment, sensing that the Earth is not their true home. Indeed, you might ask who’s home is it, as each of you originally came from the higher levels. In the 3rd. dimension Mother Earth is your temporary home for the duration of this cycle, which as you know is about to end. Many will stay with Mother Earth after Ascension, whilst others will meet their real families again. They come from many civilisations scattered throughout the Universe. You will find them within the Galactic Federation, and often they are the very same ones that have had a hand in your evolution. So you will see that we are far from being strangers to you.


Do you realise that you are influenced by your Space links, and that subconsciously for example you copy hair colouring like red and green that is not naturally found on Earth. The same applies to skin colours, fashion and even music. You are a real mix of various Space Beings, who have clearly influenced your taste. When we have reached the stage when you can accept different types of Beings, you will be quite intrigued by their appearance. Bear in mind that the different shapes and sizes are sometimes the direct result of factors such as gravity. As it happens, you are very similar indeed to many Space Beings, although there is a tendency for them to be somewhat taller. Some can be defined as male and female, but not in a truly physical sense as you understand it. In fact it is not unusual for the Higher Beings to be androgynous. It will be wonderful when you meet your Space Friends, and one of the most striking aspects for you will be the sense of love that they give out. It is very real and they are most likely those who have achieved Christ Consciousness.


Whatever sacrifices you feel you are making now, be assured that every little bit will be well worth it. You stand so near to ascending, and in but a blink of the eye it will suddenly be upon you. We would say it will be far better than you imagine, and the speed of the changes will be remarkable. We want to get the cleansing of Earth out of the way, and concentrate on getting you ready for Ascension. We know you tire of waiting but most of you are here especially for this particular time, and agreed to partake in Light work to help others to ascend. Many are healers, but you are required at all different levels so that you are in the right place at the right time to offer help. Why else would you come to Earth at such a memorable time, if not to be part of the exciting changes ahead. You have so much experience and talents to give others, and be sure you are known and will be used. If you are not yet called to serve, bide your time as you will not miss your opportunity to do so. It really is reaching an “all hands on deck” situation. Every contribution helps, and remember each of you are unique and no one can do exactly what you do.


Keep on keeping on and do not let down your guard. The dark Ones may have lost the battle, but their influences still remain and will attach to any soul that is open and not quite of the Light. Anger is still a very harmful energy and you would do well not to damage your auric field, by allowing it to spiral out of control. Emotional control is not usually a human strong point, and needs taking into check. Think twice before you blow your top, and know that it harms you as well as anyone else. Walk away from confrontation and you are not being cowardly, but playing down any chance of it becoming serious. Better still pour your love out to suffuse any chance of negative energies turning nasty. The beauty of having such a sense of occasion is that your work is carried out without drawing attention to yourself.


I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and it is so pleasing to be able to address you in a way that is friendly and informal. I Bless you All with the Light of Love.


Thank you SaLuSa.


Mike Quinsey.
