Proof of God?

Many people fret and fume that we don’t have objective proof that there is a God, or even that there was a Christ, or a Buddha, or any sign that the soul exists or a spiritual dimension is real.

This is by design, folks.

What physical evidence would YOU accept?  What physical evidence would anyone accept?  Would physical evidence gives us the sense of “knowing” which exists inside of us?  Whose expertise would you accept?  What, if anything, exists in the physical world that everyone agrees about in the same exact way?

Do we all agree that man went to the moon?  There is physical evidence – but not to all people.  Do we all agree that the Earth is round?  There is evidence – but still some say no.  Do we agree that there is evidence that proves that life needs water and air to be alive and nothing that doesn’t breathe or need water is alive?  Maybe on Earth that’s true – maybe – on Earth.  But what about viruses which don’t breathe or need water?  Who agrees on the evidence of climate change?

See.  The mental world – the logical world – the physical world is open to debate and each of us determines for ourselves the answer which we will accept.  So, physical evidence is subjective, because we all have feelings and thoughts about things – springing forth from our hearts.  These feelings and thoughts determine so much of what we choose.

We all have desires and hopes – things we want to be real or true.  These desires, feelings, hopes, etc come from within the heart – but not from the physical heart.  There we go again.

The beliefs and “knowing” of God, Spirit, the soul and the spiritual world – also are subjective only – simply because we cannot give one another our own feelings.  Our freewill to choose for ourselves how to feel and think is the freewill that everyone has to choose for themselves.

One reason why logical arguments don’t work is because the experience of God doesn’t come from the mind, but rather from the heart (not the physical heart) – where love exists.  There  is no physical proof or evidence that love exists, either.  No vial exists that contains the fluid of the love that a child has for their parent.  No bottle exists that contains the love that a mother has for her child, and on and on.  Even though some say that love is just a chemical in the brain, this too is a subjective belief based on a particular interpretation of chemical measurements.

The believe in God comes from our personal experience – which is helped by our inner experience we call “knowing”, which also is personal experience.  There is no way to share the same experiences of God, because they happen within a part of our consciousness – our heart – which we only subjectively admit exists.  The experiences of the Love of God come only because we love, also.  The experiences of a connection to God come only because our minds are open and our hearts are open.  At no time are these experiences measurable or provable that they are what we “know” them to be.

So, the belief in God, which exists in our heart, mind and soul can only happen within this one person – our self.  No one can have a relationship with God through anyone’s but their own heart.  We cannot have a relationship with God through another person’s experiences, mind or heart.

This is how it works, and will continue to work.  So, any “proof” of God may only barely come from how we treat another person – with loving kindness, patience, understanding, tolerance, mercy, forgiveness and the like.  “If God exists,” He/She lives in our hearts and actions through these qualities.  This is the only way we can share our experiences of God – by demonstrating Love.

What is Long-Suffering?

There are many teachings which say we are meant to learn long-suffering as much as to develop kindness, compassion, love, mercy, oneness, etc. Many of us intellectually shy away from this with great energy.  There is a perspective that long-suffering is the choosing of suffering, when instead we could choose to not suffer.  The idea of not suffering is a very popular one.  As human beings, we know suffering all too well, as we’ve all gone through it and all been witness to it.

And yet, …

we are meant to learn long-suffering, so, as humans, we do learn it and mostly learn it without realizing it is also a part of being alive. Here are some experiences in which we have learned it.

1. Long-suffering is seeing someone cause suffering to another person/persons, and our wanting to but being unable to stop it.

2. Long-suffering is the awareness of the suffering of people in faraway lands, with us not having the ability to change it except in seemingly small ways from so far away.

3. Long-suffering is seeing people and other lives in need, but not being able to help them except through prayer.

4. Long-suffering is knowing people, like ourselves, going through horrors which we know could be ourselves on any other day.

5. Long-suffering is caring about another person, but not being able to save them from themselves or the path of pain they choose.

6. Long-suffering is loving a child, and not able to completely protect them from the world’s dangers or the world’s horrors.

7. Long-suffering is loving a parent and not able to stop their body or their brain from breaking down and losing themselves during a very long, slow process of disappearing.

8. Long-suffering is doing the best we can, and still it’s not good enough for those who criticize and judge.

9. Long-suffering is knowing the path of pain which we have walked, but still being judged so easily by those who don’t know our life.

10. Long-suffering is dying on a cross and some of our last prayers being for help for others in “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”

11. Long-suffering is offering a beautiful, wonderful, healing, joy-filled, loving Sacred Truth to others but it being rejected with mocking and contempt.

12. Long-suffering is when we offer real water to someone dying of thirst, and they reject it choosing instead their familiarity to dying of thirst.

13. Long-suffering is knowing all we have to offer some people is love, but they would have none of it.

14. Long-suffering is having received regular prejudice, hatred, violence, injustice, harm and worse because of who and what we are, yet knowing that others who are like us in some way (color, race, religion, gender, etc) – even those we love with all our hearts – could receive the same prejudice, hatred, violence, pain, suffering and/or horrors that we have received and we can’t protect them from it.

15. Long Suffering is believing in God, but knowing that innocence, unselfishness and goodness, as within Christ, will not stop others whose agenda is for themselves only and them to hate, harm or even kill people.

16. Long suffering is realizing deep inside that the horrors of the world don’t just happen to “other people” and not ourselves. The horrors of the world can and many times do happen also to ourselves and those we love.

17. Long suffering is only experienced by those people who choose to experience oneness with life, who see life eye-to-eye equal with others, who seek to let others know they are not alone, who seek to help heal all life.

Part of long-suffering is realizing there’s little we can do to change others’ immediate sorrow and pain – sometimes nothing that is quick and responsive. But, as we pray, which calls for us to be patient and endure the suffering, along with others who may feel hopelessness, we can pray, choosing the faith which, with our prayers, comes healing and change.

We experience long-suffering, because we are human beings, we care, we love, and we keep on keeping on, even with pain in our hearts and tears in our eyes.  We believe that healing can come and so we endure.  We rarely choose “learning long suffering”.  But, we find we experience it as part of living, loving and being loved.

This, and more, is long-suffering.

The New Age of Man Approaches: Part 2 of 2

It’s not by violence. It’s not by hatred. It’s not by furthering selfish-interests. It’s not through yelling or adding to conflict. It’s not by condemning, judging, or criticizing others. It’s not through self-praise or self-righteousness or the opposite – by beating ourselves up or being unforgiving or unmerciful to ourselves.

It’s not through being a member of any particular nation, government or religion. It’s not by putting someone down or oppressing, or even forcing someone. And, it’s not by eliminating people through war or any other means.

We move humanity forward in this Earthly evolution of consciousness through the bringing forth of our patience, kindness, forgiveness, our long-suffering, compassion, understanding, love, mercy, our charity, expressing brotherhood and tolerance, and our meditation and prayer practices.

We move all of humanity forward via unselfishness – for all of humanity – hence why humanity does not move forward except through the Spirit of God being part of the motivating Spirit within people’s hearts and souls. Only through Spiritual efforts of bringing forth the Fruits of the Spirit will humanity as a whole continue to evolve in all ways that humanity can evolve.

This can and will take many lifetimes and many eons according to human time tables, each leading us further down our path. While it may seem a long time – even be our experience of a long time, in the framework of the Infinite Consciousness of God/Love, it is accomplished in a blink of an eye.

Yet, for us, today, it is an act of Infinite Compassion that we can come to realize that we can experience this evolution – which we can also call ‘healing’ – happening every day, through each moment which we contribute/help to bring about for those in need – which is all of us.  We can experience Love.  We can experience mercy.  We can experience joy, compassion, understanding, wisdom and in doing so, slowly become aware that we are experiencing the Consciousness of God – maybe not the “Infinite” part, but rather a part that we can absorb as a human.

As we are present with the current times, even witnessing this current day, the following additional principles can help as we walk the road we’re on.

– As difficult as it is to understand why this is – we are not here on the planet to save the Earth.  We are here on the planet, to help each other remember and reawaken to our spiritual nature and reality.  We can only do this by demonstrating the fruits of our spiritual reality within human realms and arenas – each aspect formed from love – oneness, unity, brotherhood, … forgiveness, mercy, patience, respect … faith, trust, knowing oneself, … Loving God above all else, and loving our neighbor as our self.  And yes, we can extend these fruits to the Earth, as well.

– Learn the lesson of “Asking for help”.  We’re not in this life to go through life alone or take care of ourselves alone.  We didn’t give birth to ourselves. We didn’t change our own diapers or feed ourselves at 1 year old, or clothe ourselves at 2 years old or determine to go to school at 5 or 6, or teach our selves math or reading or all about how to live our life.  As adults, we are so intertwined with the work of other people, that we can never honestly say that we’re self-sufficient since we didn’t build our own vehicles, build our own roads, build our own telephones, etc and etc. We live relying on the work and effort of the billions of people around the whole planet. All equipment and supplies reach us via the work of ourselves and other people. Even the most extreme living in the woods away from civilization, we are not the sole person influencing our staying alive.

God designed us to “need one another.” Learn the lesson of “Asking for help” – the demonstration of “our needing each another”.

– It is helpful if one of our prayers is always, “Lord, teach me the truth.

– Christ’s words to Peter are also for us – “You don’t concern yourself about that other person or the path they walk.  They are My concern.  You follow me.”  Forgiveness is letting go of insisting the other one learn and grow first – before we ever choose to learn and grow. The higher energy comes to heal the low energy when we let go of our **requiring** or **demanding** someone else change instead of ourselves in life or in that moment.  God has already willed that no soul shall perish, and this means all souls will be guided to re-find their healing path – but this is in God’s times and God’s ways, and not in human time frames or human-understood ways.

– During this time, we may be called upon to help others in ways we haven’t been helping before, or at a certain level of helping in which we haven’t gone before.  In the last days of Jesus, before His death, He worked to take full advantage of every moment left.  He sought to help as much as He could, and as many people as He could in the few days/weeks He had left.  Time was short, but so many sought His help, still.  His heart was dedicated to helping as many as He could, in all ways which the Father directed Him.

We are called also, now, especially in the days ahead, to help in ways which could stretch us to step up to another level.  It is for each of us to decide for ourselves, but we also, can ask God, “Here am I, Lord.  I’m ready. How can I help?”  Each of us is unique, and our own uniqueness brings us to be able to help in ways only we could help, because of our uniqueness.  The place we find ourselves, the skills we have, the feelings in our own heart – these are where God brings us — so that we can help in the place we find ourselves with the skills we have and the feelings in our heart.  “How can I, being the unique me, help in my unique way?”

– If we are seeing darkness manifest, feeling in despair or discouraged, then also look for the Light.  We are not abandoned, because even on the worst stormy days and nights, the sun/Son is still active above all, and is still actively continuing to work to break through clouds of darkness.  It is for us to shine our Light from our underside of the storms, also.

– God does not have all of us experience the same difficulties or life circumstances.  Even in the times ahead, there will be different difficulties and circumstances for different people.  Some people will go through great pain and suffering.  Some will go through minor difficulties.  Some will not go through problems at all.  This is also under God’s guidance, like the blind man Christ healed, saying, “This man was born blind for the Glory of God.”  His blindness was not from his own karma.  And Christ did not leave him in blindness.  Rather, with his asking, Christ healed him so others could believe in the healing which they witnessed happen that day, and in turn, then believe God is available to all who call upon Him in times of need.  God calls upon each of us to be someone whom God can work through for someone’s help – with each of us being on a different experiential path to help the different ways that are needed.

– We let the prayer, “Lord, help me be honest with myself.” be with us over and over through the day. We let it be a prayer that is in our hearts sincerely regardless of our judgment of it. Let the truth that it brings, come up from within, without judging what comes up within us to be accurate or worthy, or realistic. God is all things – even the ‘human-impossible’. God is the “All Possible”, the “Infinite Possible” and the limitless Imaginative Possible”, even while we don’t understand how this possibly could be.

– It is when we stand eye-to-eye, shoulder-to-shoulder, as equals, that we are united brothers and sisters, and not when we place ourselves above or below someone else.  Every one of us is an average, regular and normal spirit entity inside a physical body (of various species.)

“There is no realm in which God’s Complete Consciousness is not present.  We swim inside, breathe inside, live inside the Infinite Consciousness of God, and all the while, with God’s complete and Infinite Awareness fully present – even of our individual self and all we go through.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

“God, thank you for your presence, guidance, help in my life, and love, even when I’m not aware of it.”

 

The New Age of Man Approaches: Part 1 of 2

So many of us have come into this world for the times that are now coming upon us. These are the last of the days of this age of man. The new age of man will begin in 20 years – 2038. But, there’s some work to do before then, and … some difficult times are ahead for many all over this planet.  (If you remember 1998, that is how much time 20 years is.)

With the next 2 years, 2018-2020, we enter into a time when we will see ever increasing manifestations of low vibration/dark energy. (Not really ‘dark’ of itself but rather less and less of the Light.)  Much of this will be (1) physical harm, (2) economic hardship for more people, and  — (3) social aggression manifesting from the human choice to act this way due to the success of using aggression in the past eons of human life. (It is important to remember that aggression breeds aggression, hatred breeds hatred, war breeds war, etc.)

The times of “darkness” or “greater difficulties” will last 6 years more after that – 2020-2026, then there will be 2 more years of slowly climbing out of the low vibration/dark energy, 2026-2028.  This will then put us into a time of 10 years starting 2028 – of rebuilding, repairing, restoring, healing and by many more people – deciding to select/choose different ways to relate to each other in the world – different than the automatic ways of today – ways which are meant to select better ways to relate – which do not breed aggression, hatred, war, etc.

[Side note: dark energy is simply low vibration. Low vibration comes into existence as we move towards acts of hatred, bitterness, and vengeance in our heart and away from acts of Love, kindness, tolerance, patience, understanding – moving towards acts of  violence, both physical and social, and the other forms of self-centered acts/living (our self alone). Love and loving brings forth the higher vibrations and the Light. All the manifestations of love – kindness, compassion, and yes, long-suffering, bring us out of the low vibration and dark energy.]

[Side note: Long-suffering is the act of suffering through an event which one can do little about – seeking to persevere and suffer through the event and its ramifications.  More on this in a future posting.]

We are entering into a time to actively pursue and exercise our faith in God, faith in ourselves, and faith in others. These next 10 years mark the completion of bringing forth much karmic energy which we collectively set in motion from our past, which needs to be healed/faced/resolved/rebalanced/cleaned up before establishing the new age of Mankind.  The 10 years after that, not only will we be climbing higher out of the dark/low energy times, but also, we will be deciding which ideals to pursue as a human race in the new age which begins in 2038 – not in a “Pollyanna” way, but in ways that include the struggles and pain of holding onto and physically/socially manifesting higher ideals even in the face of the easiness of giving up.

We decide these ideals as individuals and not from a “group meeting.”  This means that if you or I set and practice higher ideals, this will spread.  If you or I don’t bother, this “not bothering” will spread, as well.  Don’t be surprised if these concepts are not readily recognizable or if anyone acknowledges it at all.  The process is not necessarily going to be conscious on a day-to-day level.  Remember, also, it is the beginning, not the “peak”.

It is for us a time now to practice what we’ve been preaching – to practice that which we’ve been learning. We are called to practice now many following principles:

– As simple as it might seem, taking life one day at a time in order to focus on the challenges which are in our laps today – on this one day.  While this may seem too simplistic on the surface, when practiced one can see very real benefits if practiced alongside the words of Christ to have faith in God to handle the worries of tomorrow while we focus on today.

– Accept that we will still have doubt come up within us, but in the face of that doubt, instead consciously choose to have faith in a Living, Active and Participating God.

– Lean not on our own beliefs and understandings which we’ve had throughout our life so far. Instead entertain an open mind – allowing for things we won’t immediately understand. With time, we will see how new information and awarenesses make sense and work in the world. Be ready to let go of some beliefs that don’t align with a larger paradigm – (this is a struggle indeed.)  Remember, Christ (going by every name humans use) understands many things that we do not.

– Many times in our day-to-day lives, we will find ourselves in ‘dead-ends’ where we get nowhere and accomplish nothing – whether it is from choices we’ve made or circumstances.  In these moments, we can pray, “Lord, do you have something else you want for me instead of this?” and “Whether yes or no, show me the way to move forward with this, through this, learn from this, gain from this, and then with moving into more than this.”

– The people in this Earth are desperately starving for kindness and compassion of all kinds. We can help with this by being awake and aware of expressing kindness and other mercies while we interact with people throughout the current day. Each act of kindness and mercy towards another person is a change towards a better Earth. Not just “random” acts of kindness, but deliberate acts of kindness.

– Great and grand gestures are for those who seek to praise themselves. God works through the quietness of one person helping one person.  Massive libraries beyond imagination could be filled with the works the Father/Christ/the Holy Spirit/Buddah/Allah/Jehovah has done to help people – quietly and known only within their own hearts, minds, bodies and souls.

– With God, our facing our difficulties, is possible – but without God, things start becoming noticeably not possible.

– Condemning and criticizing do not bring healing into the world.  But, condemning and criticizing do bring more pain and suffering into the world.  Instead trade up – patience, forgiveness, understanding, mercy – these things do bring healing into this world.  We do this one person at a time… and do it by choice, not by accident.

– Meditation and prayer – whether for 1 minute or 30 or an hour – each meditation and each prayer adds to change for individuals and the planet. The more prayer and meditation, the more higher energy comes into this world – both (1.) to heal the destined karmic energy coming to be manifested, which we all contributed to at some point in our past lives, and (2.) to strengthen the help, presence and Love of the Spirit of God in the planet for each life that exists in the planet.

(continued in Part 2)

*******

In one of the next articles/postings, I will also post “What We Can Watch For or Expect”.

*******

“No one religion, no one book can hold All of the Light, All of Love, and All of Oneness – All of the Infinite Consciousness of God.  No finite “anything” in this 3-dimensional planet can completely hold the Infinite.  As the Human Race, we need the diversity that exists so as to allow greater and greater numbers to find a path leading to the top of the mountain that is the connection to the Infinite One God.

 

Trust and Beliefs

“We can learn to trust others when they are being trustworthy, and learn to not trust them when they are not being trustworthy, but we need to learn when to trust ourselves in order to learn to tell the difference.” (The Rainbow Cards)

It is easy to be misled. We want to believe certain things. Sometimes, we want so badly to believe that we allow ourselves to be misled.

However, problems can arise from this in several ways. First problem is when we want to hold on to our beliefs so badly, that we act destructively towards others who we may see as challenging our beliefs. The second is when we then go on to help mislead others.

Everyone alive has different beliefs from everyone else alive.  Maybe not drastically or noticeably different beliefs, but somewhere in there, there are differences.  There is no avenue to dislodge someone else from their beliefs other than presenting different perspectives and different beliefs. This is because freewill is given to every soul, and will not be taken away from any soul.

We can be misled when we don’t have strong beliefs, and we can mislead others knowingly and unknowingly. We can also mislead ourselves. Every person has the freewill to choose what they will believe and hold to.  At the same time, we tend to think it’s the other person who has been misled and we are the ones with beliefs that are true.

Contrary to what one may think, one method of helping to not be misled by our self or by others is to keep an open and ever inquiring mind. It is a paradox, sometimes.  This is not an act of accepting everything we see and hear, but rather, working to understand in a deeper way that which could be new to us. This includes asking questions, asking more questions and then asking even more questions.

We are forever putting together an ever bigger paradigm of ourselves and the world in which we live.  The greater the paradigm of understanding, the stronger the foundation of that paradigm.

The act of knowing truth is a subjective act. It is not an experience that one person can give to another person. It is only an experience that we can own because of it coming from within our own heart, mind and soul. It may seem like “someone said something that rang true”, but had it not been within one’s own heart and soul first, it would not have “rung” at all.

With the great number of differing beliefs – about every facet of life – this then, is why I continue to mention, “It is not what we believe, but what we do with our beliefs, that is important.”  In other words, how do we motivate ourselves and others using our beliefs as the foundation?

It then behooves us to consider what then we  choose to believe – about ourselves, about others and about God.  We can choose to believe the very worst.  We can also choose to believe the very best.  Probably somewhere in between is what is actually true when we choose beliefs about individual people.  As Edgar Cayce said in one of his readings, “There is good in the worst of us, and there is bad in the best of us.”  Seeing life as one or the other, but not both – good or bad, white or black, left or right, right or wrong and not seeing the blending of the two within every person – good and bad together in one person – white and black together in one person – left and right together in one person – right and wrong together in one person – is the belief where we mislead ourselves the most.

*******

“What is to be asked of ourselves is, do we want our beliefs or do we want the truth?  Holding onto just the first can sometimes prevent the second.  Allowing for more than just the first, can help discover the second.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2018, Jodie Senkyrik)

Forgiveness DNA

The giving and receiving of forgiveness is like the coming and going of DNA.  DNA in equals DNA out.   The level of forgiveness which we receive is simply the level of forgiveness we give. If we’re 100% sincere when we forgive, we will be forgiven 100%. If we are half sincere when we forgive, we will be forgiven half sincerely.  If we have conditions when we forgive, we will be forgiven but only with conditions. If we forgive, yet with no mercy, then we will be shown no mercy when we are forgiven.

That which resides deep inside our hearts and minds when we forgive – the DNA of our own intentions, feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors – is that same DNA with which we will be forgiven. No amount of being honest with ourselves or lying to ourselves will change this.  All of this is true also if we offer no forgiveness whatsoever from within our hearts.

In addition, if faced with forgiving someone, if we are greatly disappointed with the one we feel we need to forgive, then we’d better start being more active in helping them, because disappointment in others comes from high expectations of their behaviors, but with low levels of our active involvement helping or supporting them on their path. Praying regularly for the ones we’re disappointed in, is the place to start.

“There will be no peace on Earth, if there is no forgiveness among each of us.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 1997-2018, Jodie Senkyrik)

“Forgiveness is letting go of the idea and belief that “So-and-so owes ME!” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 1998-2018, Jodie Senkyrik)

“Forgiveness is like helping someone clean their house.  It’s not particularly fun, but it does help in a very real way.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 1994-2018, Jodie Senkyrik)

“If someone we loved very much, needed food or clothing, would we give them some? If this person that we loved with all our heart needed a kidney, would we give them one? What if they needed forgiveness, or mercy, or patience, or understanding, would we give it to them? Which of these is easier to give? What if it was someone we didn’t love or even like at all? Would we also give them forgiveness, or mercy, or patience, or understanding? Does giving forgiveness, understanding, mercy, etc, depend on whether we like them or not?” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 1997-2018, Jodie Senkyrik)

Holding On For Hope

Many versions of Christ’s crucifixion exist in many forms to tell the story. One thing that is in all the versions is the torture and suffering inflicted upon Him throughout the many hours He was taken into custody. I won’t go through all the levels of suffering, but rather that He chose to walk the path which led to this. He knew long before this time that this is why He came into this world, also. He willingly went through this.

While gathering somewhere else and His followers giving up hope for a world where Jesus led them, Christ walked this entire road to this end – stumbling, blood, sweat, acceptance, pain, nails, the cross, even to the sword through His side and His last words, “It is done.” and His death. As a human being, He experienced every moment of these things.

“Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” In these words, He speaks of seeing past the material world, past earthly actions and behaviors, and past the cause of His death. In Him was the hope that comes with seeing past the physical world to that which is beyond our own ability to see. His sight was capable of seeing His life continuing in the way that was Truth of who He was and who we are.  Hence how He could ask for their/our forgiveness.

Like His followers, there are so many times and situations where we feel our own loss of hope. Despair, discouragement, sorrow, grief for things lost or never gained, suffering – each of these are things we know and experience. We don’t see what He sees, but we are challenged to look beyond the material experiences – look beyond our material circumstances and our physical situations.

When we find ourselves in these experiences – experiences leading to our lost hope, it is these times – which we all go through – when we are little children, in pain, lost in the dark, and very scared – children in adult bodies still thinking we are adults. “Suffer the little children to come unto me” is His statement to our “adult belief” to let the hurt, lost and scared child self come to Him. Then we can reach up as children must do, to His waist and wrap our arms around Him, holding on with all our strength.

It is these moments with His arms reaching down to us bringing us in, that He gives His most to us – His most love, His most caring, His most comfort, His most acceptance, His most everything – when we let ourselves “come unto Him”.

There are things which He knows, and sometimes we get to learn if we work at it. One of these things is hope. We are all still learning. And as we hold onto His waist with our child-strength, He lets us know, “Remember, I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
