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.

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.”

Of the Soul

Love is of the soul. The soul has both masculine and feminine. Both of these are capable of and regularly incarnate into a physical body. AND! because the soul benefits and grows from the enrichment of different experiences, the masculine and feminine can both incarnate into either the same or opposite gender bodies. We have such a diverse potential within this Earth to manifest and experience that we can create opposite gender experiences in order to develop greater understanding of the human experience.

Hence, why we create gay, lesbian and transgender experiences in our world. The diversity of experiences related to these can help souls learn. This doesn’t mean that being gay, lesbian or transgender will be forced upon a soul (unless karmic law is in effect). It means that each is a viable and useful incarnated experience. It also means that the feminine in a male body and the masculine in a female body is an available Earth option, should one wish to experience it.

Love is of the soul. We can experience love in opposite physical bodies than the gender aspect which manifests. Since love is of the soul, it is possible to love beyond the physical – to the soul. Those we’ve loved in a past life, can still be those we love in the current life. Still, freewill is active for both souls in such a reunion, and this does indeed give chance for either joyful or painful reunions as human beings.

Las Vegas Horror

Spiritual law exists and is fulfilled. This is immutable, but it can vary as to the many methods it can be fulfilled. The spiritual law I’m referring to here in this example is – “The experiences we give others are the experiences we give ourselves.” This means that those experiences we put others through will be the experiences we put ourselves through (not always by choice). This is law, commonly called karma, but can also be known as the law of creation.

The vast majority of fulfilling events for this law are not manifested all in one particular lifetime, but rather in other lives we’ve lived or will live. In fact, looking only at one lifetime very few spiritual laws and principles appear to be true. Looking at the same laws and principles in the context of each soul living many lives, things start to make sense.

With the horror that happened in Las Vegas, we can see great suffering happen to many people. Even more people suffer from learning about this event afar – via TV or the News and the like. As sorrowful as it is to say this, these events too are fulfillment of law.

No, the people as they lived their lives this time around did not deserve this. No one ever deserves this. But, these things are bound by law to happen. And the soul from whom these things come – great woe, suffering and pain is theirs and sometimes for thousands of years both in physical form and outside of physical form.

The Bible tells us through various wordings, roughly, “everything we’ve ever done to harm or cause suffering, we must clean up.” Every i must be dotted and every t must be crossed. This means that every experience we’ve ever created for someone else to experience, either we will experience or we must heal and dissolve. Every ripple in time we create, will return to us. This is the fulfillment of the creation of experiences which exist within an Infinite Consciousness – of which all of us are a part.

Yet, this law is not in place to punish. This law has no judgement of any soul, even though we may project judgment into it. This law exists to help us raise our vibrations to the vibration of Infinite Love.

You see, these events like the killings in Las Vegas, can be healed, resolved, dissolved, and dismissed long before they ever happen. The purpose of all things is to raise our vibration to the level of Infinite Love. The simple truth is that we can raise our vibration to the levels at which these horrific events can be removed from having to manifest.

The how is as we’ve mentioned many times before – through those acts that raise the vibrations in the Earth – prayer, meditation, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, long-suffering, patience, charity, kindness, Love, and the other fruits of the spirit.

Any event, both horrific or wonderful, has its own vibration. The vibrations of prayer and meditation, love, kindness, forgiveness, mercy, patience, etc., are a higher vibration than these destructive and harmful events. Higher vibrations have a greater power than lower vibrations and can greatly impact energy that otherwise is destined to manifest as suffering – like the event in Las Vegas.

Our prayers, our meditations, our efforts to bring forth the fruits of the spirit from within our own hearts and onward into the Earth, are the ways to heal souls and heal the energy of our past created experiences which are still waiting to find the appropriate channel to manifest.

These acts can be healed through prayer and meditation – for humankind. But, without prayer and meditation, these acts will manifest. As I’ve said before, the more prayer, the more healing. The more meditation, kindness, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, understanding, patience, support, charity, long-suffering, cooperation, tolerance and love – the more healing.

If we look for proof that this law is possible and in effect, we will find none that is suitable. No physical proof exists of a non-physical reality. The physical reality is the reflection of the non-physical reality. No reflection ever offers any substance of that which it reflects. No part of a reflection in any mirror has physical substance of that which is reflected.

Yet, we live each day with the choice to pray, to love, to show mercy and compassion towards others for their own sake, knowing inside our very soul that these things are worthwhile, and are needed in a weary, weary world in order to bring that world out of the manifestation of those destructive acts which we created lifetimes ago, yet haven’t yet healed.

We can heal events like the one in Las Vegas, before it happens.  We have already done so much healing.  Events destined to manifest, have been dissolved and healed.  We need only keep on keeping on with this work.

Why are there so many white supremacists…?

My question to you is, why are there so many white supremacists here in the USA, who profess to be “good” Christians, who continue to hate Jews and accuse us of conspiracy and part of a Synagogue of Satan? Like my parents before me, I am concerned for my children and grandchildren.  Wandering Jew

First, I want to suggest that the real issue isn’t about “white supremacists”.  Everyone who hates even a little contributes to the hatred in the world.  The real issue and therefore the real question is “Why are there so many human beings that hate?”

But, I can offer you two answers to your question as you ask it.

For all human beings – our human hatred of another does not start in a book, nor a religion or culture, nor a form of government, philosophy, organization, scientific discipline, mathematical equation, or any structure that humans have built and use.  Hatred also does not begin inside any bodily characteristic – i.e. from our DNA leading to body differences like skin color.  Hatred starts inside the hearts and minds of each of us separate individuals who of our own freewill chooses for himself and herself what to feel and think, including who and what to fear.  This has been the case for millennia after millennia of humankind’s existence on the Earth.  Both Love and Hate are choices we can make.

Within any of us who chooses hatred with any of it’s various manifesting forms, within ourselves, each of us individual human beings then chooses that identifying  marker outside of the heart, using that structure or belief system or etc., etc., to support, justify or rationalize acting on our human hatred.

We can use each human belief system, societal structure or anything that exists in the world as a tool for building humanity and our relationships or a tool for destroying humanity and our relationships. All of these items then get usurped for any person’s purposes and agendas which we can hold within our own hearts and minds.

Study the basic precepts of all the structures and systems that I’ve mentioned in the paragraphs above and you’ll discover true wisdom and opportunity to unite people lie within them all.  But, not all people choose (freewill again) to practice the wisdom or take the opportunities to unite when they take hold of the precepts.  As I’ve said, we humans can take hold of a particular belief system in order to support and justify our own feelings, beliefs and actions, as well.

***

The second reason is really the real reason.  It is this:  If we look as deep as possible within the souls, hearts and minds of every human individual, we would see such suffering and pain, that could cause any manner of insane acting out, in order to find something that would relieve one’s own tremendous suffering which can exist within anyone for millennia after millennia.  Were we willing to look at anyone’s suffering and pain (even our own,) it would bring a greater understanding to all of us, and give us good reason to disarm our own weapons aimed at someone else.

Imagine two people on opposite sides of every issue saying this same thing directed at the other, “I hate the suffering and pain which your viewpoint causes and adds to mine and others’ lives.”  In effect, this is what is happening.

Healing both sides is a slow process which comes from taking one step at a time, trying over and over working at it, but it is a process that we are involved in through every prayer we pray, every meditations, every act of mercy, every effort at forgiveness and more.  It is difficult but with God, all things are possible.  Because no law can ever stop our prayers, meditations, mercy, forgiveness, patience, loving kindness, compassion, brotherhood, courage, unity and more happening within our hearts, the process of healing for all of us will never be stopped.  God in all His forms that we believe in is committed to this, and will see it through to the completion for all life.  Our calling is not to try to be perfect but to practice each of these – mercy, understanding, loving kindness, etc – in the human experiences that we face.

The harvest is ready.  Who will become a worker?

We can only teach forgiveness, and all that forgiveness entails, by forgiving and making our forgiveness real, active and involved in our life.
We can only teach mercy, and all that mercy entails, by giving mercy and making this mercy real, active and involved in our life.
We can only teach…” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2009-2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

Suicide

Sadness and grief permeate all facets of suicide. The human experiences of those who commit suicide and the human experiences of those who are left behind contain all manners of sorrow and pain before, during and after it is done. From the spiritual side of life, there is another consideration – an  opportunity to grow as a soul is lost.

Many humans will discuss the subject of suicide and condemn the act. Many say it’s not a problem at all.  Many say that it is an unforgivable sin. Many say that the person goes to hell for committing suicide. Many people say many things about what others do.

But, God does not take instruction from mankind. Like so many other things, our experience on the other side is very much based on our beliefs on this side. The standards we set for others are the standards we must be judged by – to some degree.  The point being that God determines what God’s perspective and stance on something is.

In the process of soul growth – the expansion and evolution of the consciousness of an individual spirit inhabiting or not inhabiting a body – we are afforded many opportunities to learn of our relationships to God, to each other and to ourselves. Suicide, like many other things of this type in life, (murder, drug addiction, etc) prevents or stops particular opportunities for the soul to face certain necessary challenges.  But in the eternity of Infinite time, something else is the case.

First, suicide, like so many other experiences, is a personal choice. How we treat others is a choice. How we treat God is a choice. How we treat ourselves is a choice.

When suicide is chosen and acted out, very little of their personal pain, challenges and lessons change for the soul. Their challenges don’t go away. Their suffering doesn’t go away. However, their connection to others on Earth who may have been helpful does go away for a while. Their opportunity to continue learning of the issues at hand does go away for a while.

Still, learning as a whole, does not go away. Starting over at some point in the future and facing the same challenges, doesn’t go away. While we will one day be required to clean up our exact same messes with regards to the people who had been in our physical life, the fact that “God loves a soul who is willing to start over” (Edgar Cayce) means that we are not abandoned in our soul growth after an act of suicide. It will just take longer.  It also means we don’t get to escape from learning a “particular lesson”.

As souls, we have much to learn. As human beings, we have much to learn in the extreme. One of those things to learn is that while many want it to be, suicide isn’t the escape people think it is. There is no escape from the soul work we have to do or the issues, circumstances, and challenges that we must eventually and one day will face.

As human beings we have many experiences that can lead us to think that suicide is the only door open to us. So many of us, if not all of us, must face this perspective that we have potentially within us. One thing to remember, (when the time comes for each of us to answer this question for ourselves,) is that we are not designed to go through life alone. We are designed to need one another.  The need for one another can be said to have been built into our “spiritual DNA” – the very energy/essence of our existence.  It is truth that we are all in this boat together. We are teammates. We can make it through these experiences by connecting to our teammates, relying on others to help us, and one day in turn, maybe us helping some other teammate.

Another thing to remember, is that Christ can truly be thought of as one of our best friends. (We will always have this one best friend.)  When we face the challenges that we will face, we can reach out to our best friends – the friend who is most able to understand and have room for us in their heart.  We can also reach out to any teammates who are “in the boat rowing along side of us (any human whom we find to reach out to.)

While we may argue this point, it really is true – God designed us to need one another. Problems arise when we try to ignore this need.  Problems can be healed and resolved when we understand and act on this need.

A Drop of Ocean

Every experience that a human being goes through belongs to every human being. Every experience that any living organism has belongs to every living organism.

Every experience that is part of any galaxy or the entire physical universe belongs to the whole galaxy or whole physical universe.

Everything in the ocean belongs to every drop of the ocean. Everything within the Infinite Consciousness of God belongs to every part of the Infinite Consciousness of God.

All of Infinity belongs to every part of Infinity. All experiences belong to all that can experience.

By the term “belongs to” I mean ‘is inherent to,’ ‘imbibed to’, ‘innate to,’ ‘part of,’ and therefore, ‘no separation from.’

The experience of taking the first step on the moon, belongs to every human being. The experience of turning the gas knob to ‘on’, at the gas chambers of Auschwitz belongs to every human being. Every experience of breaking every athletic record or murdering another person, every act of good and every act of evil belongs to every living organism that has the capacity to experience – from the largest of all things to the smallest of all things.

Every organism or consciousness part of the Infinite by the nature of having no separation, no dis-union, by the nature of being one with Infinite things, … owns all experiences that are experienced.

The Infinite Consciousness of God owns all experiences that are experienced, because no experience happens separate from the Infinite Consciousness of God. All beings and things that have some level of consciousness – which are all things that exist – are part of the Infinite Consciousness of God, and therefore connected to all things that exist.

As we do unto others, therefore, we do unto all Infinity, of which we, ourselves, are included.  This means that both dying on the Cross and knowing the full Glory of God belongs to all of us.
