Heaven as a Bore: The Human Drama Cycle

An interesting observation I just made today, was in one the facegroups called Violet Awakening, there isn’t much arguing or fighting going on. In fact, there isn’t much in depth dialogue going on between people. Everyone is simply sharing their thoughts on love, abundance, soul bliss, and joy. I can’t believe it, but this group actually is a pocket on the internet where people don’t bother each other. They all have different faiths, share different points of view, but connect on the level of violet consciousness which is the Crown Chakra, point of spiritual realization.

Being a spirit in an energetic body, this is a great state of being. Imagine, floating in your consciousness of pure bliss, never any wars, or evils. I can picture it right now…it seems absolutely beautiful. However, it does draw the question that perhaps brings our existence into focus: Is heaven boring?

To my human level, YES, it is. I am feeling it in this group. Not that the group members are boring, but it is “uneventful”. There isn’t any drama, or problems. I am so glad this group exists because in a web full of arguments, threats, and problems, I am glad this group doesn’t have any in order to be a safe haven for others. Trust me, I am really happy that the state of being the group is. I do wish there was more wild discussions going on though.

BUT it raises the question that one time, I heard from others, asking if Heaven really is boring. While, I don’t think Hell is an adventure rather than a pining or burning place of remorse and regret. I would say Heaven is not boring at the spirit level, but at the personality level..heck yeah! We humans crave action, and reaction. Eventful adventures that drive us towards the quest of fulfillment of the soul. Once you are fulfilled in the soul, you are done experiencing the adventure because there is nothing more to seek.

So can this earth become a Heaven? No, because subconsciously many aren’t ready for that in the physical. I know I am in the spiritual level when dead and gone, but not right now as me. I am sure many others can agree and perhaps this is why many choose NOT to believe in Heaven, Angels and God. Maybe deep down, they don’t want to stop the human cycle of adventure.

When humans stop wanting adventure and exploration maybe that’s when they are ready for Heaven’s bliss. I try to picture any action happening in Heaven, and can not. I truly don’t see wars, or issues arising in this state of being. All I see or feel is a state of pure awareness and bliss. No souls are fighting or arguing in Jannah/Heaven, because of a pure state of consciousness that they are in.

Wow..I can’t believe I admitted this. But while I am alive still, I LIKE the experience of drama. I love seeing good and evil play out and learning from it’s lessons. I love siding with the Good and Light side and most certainly don’t like seeing the suffering, but I know this is a byproduct of evil existing. If evil didn’t exist, this world would be completely different. It would be a total state of “non action” or perhaps the actions would take place in other ways?

Could adventure be had without having to battle evil always? I am not so sure, but it gives me something to ponder. Would we be really ready for Heaven in the physical? What do you think?

What are the alternatives to adventure without war or fighting against something?

Islam and The Little Prince Connection

Netflix finally released the brand new Little Prince movie! And I finally watched it tonight. I was so emotional as this particular version of the Little Prince was to go beyond the book and discuss the deeper spiritual understandings embedded inside. One of the greatest reasons, I found islam to be my personal path is the constant reminder in the Quran about SEEING with the heart instead of being blind in the mind. Or in lesser poetic terms-closed off emotionally and spiritually.

Of course the Quran was never speaking about physical blindness, but it is the blindness within that keeps people from obtaining “Jannah” in this world, and in the next.

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Quran 2:18

Deaf, dumb and blind – so they will not return.

Quran 13:9

Then is he who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? They will only be reminded who are people of understanding –

Just as the Little Prince teaches the Pilot about how to see the world with his heart, and not just with his closed mind, Allah also teaches His creations.

Another connection to Islam that The Little Prince carries is the idea of the transcendent soul. It is very clear that the Little Prince is talking about death as the way to release himself from the attachments to earth in order to get back to his original state.

This is connecting the Garden of Eden to our original state of being. The innocence we have had before our knowledge of good and bad. We are in essence making our own journeys back to this garden, where waters flow and sweet nectar is given. Where we are surrounded by other pure souls who become our soul companions for as long as we desire their company and friendship. The small planet that the Little Prince came from and was going back to is about his remembrance of his simple pleasure in life, and the innocence of being present in the moment. He was in bliss, until the vain flower caused him to run in search of himself. In one way this rose represents the ego, that we all eventually detach ourselves from once we transcend into a state of higher understandings.

The Quran teaches mankind, that once a person sheds their ego, they no longer are attached to this world, and can enter the gates of Heaven….the Gardens we originate from. This is why giving the shirt off your back in charity, and helping one another materially and emotionally is so important in the Quran. When you help others find happiness, you detach from your own attachments and in turn find your own happiness within.

Quran 9:72

Allah has promised to the believers -men and women, – Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein forever, and beautiful mansions in Gardens of ‘Adn (EdenParadise). But the greatest bliss is the Good Pleasure of Allah. That is the supreme success.

Quran 19:61

Gardens of Eden, which the Beneficent hath promised to His slaves in the unseen. Lo! His promise is ever sure of fulfilment –

 

Another lesson in the Little Prince that correlates to what Gabriel was showing Muhammad to teach others, was the idea of death as a transition. It is never the end. The Little Prince teaches the pilot this, as he chooses to drop the weight of his “shell” which is the bodily form, in order to go back to the asteroid he once came from. Like humans, we drop our shells, when Allah decides it is time for our journey to end, and we transition into the next state. We are very much alive, as much as the Little Prince is laughing amongst the stars.

Quran 2:154

And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah , “They are dead.” Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not.

Quran 19: 15

And peace be upon him the day he was born and the day he dies and the day he is raised alive.

Quran 19: 66

And the disbeliever says, “When I have died, am I going to be brought forth alive?”

Quran 79: 14

When, behold, they find themselves over the earth alive after their death

The Quran is a road map back home. It is not the only one. Allah provides wisdom to those who seek it and believe in the beyond. But the Quran is a clear Sign book created to reach those of Understanding and who are not yet blind within the heart. I am one of those Muslims, and am happy to say I did not allow the worldly perspective blind my heart from the spiritual knowledge given to me through the Quran, and possibly through other forms of help.

The Little Prince is one of the best selling books in the whole world, it has been written in almost every language. NASA named an asteroid after the asteroid the Little Prince lived on in the book, called B612. There is some deep spiritual truths hidden within this children’s tale because as Allah shows time and time again, humans learn best through hearing stories, and passing them down.

The movie was really beautiful. If you liked the book, I highly recommend. It is a bit different, but the destination is the same. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and let it open your heart even more.

My Daily Life As an Awakened Person

I wanted to write about what it means to be able to have faith, and see the esoteric meanings in the holy books. I would like to give you a glimpse into my daily life and how it actually FEELS being me as a Muslim, knowing what I know about the Quran and humanity.

My day starts out like any other human, I am groggy from the sleep and often ponder why do I have to go to work that day. I do my morning prayers and get down on my knees in a form of meditation and bowing to a Higher Power outside my self. Since the Quran is never specific on what to pray except for the first Surah, I just talk to God and tell Him my plans to help others see the Light of God more. Sometimes, I do get tearful because of so much ignorance in the world of His immense beauty and mercy. Often times, I am tearful because I am grateful for the blessings given to me.

What happens next is the starting of my day. Sometimes, I put on Unsolved Mysteries and other times Dr.Phill is in the background. Depends on my mood. I often enjoy hearing about the unsolved mysteries of the world, knowing deep down ALL the truth will come out and this show often times shows people that this material world is not so black and white all the time. I like mysteries and I also like to try to solve them in my mind, which is why I became a spiritual seeker in the first place.

I enjoy Dr. Phill ,because he is a “no nonsense” type of guy that truly tells people the way it is. I enjoy his immense ability to perceive things they way they are-he is very perceptive and he is able to get people to see things in a brand new light.

Next, I go out the door, with ear phones on listening to music while I walk to the train. The music I enjoy is either really spacey new age, calming spa music, or a gentle indie station with meaningful lyrics to ponder. As I walk through the streets, I always glance at the sun in the sky and the bright beautiful open space above me with a knowing little “nod” to the angels and God. Not that I see God sitting on a cloud, but I see God in a higher realm that can only be reached through higher consciousness of thought. And that sun was created as a lamp to warm the little creations on this planet. I feel the immense love for life from God and the angels who work to guide humans, as their younger brothers and sisters.

As I give my little tearful grateful smile at the sky, I rush along the streets looking at people around me. I like to notice where they are in life. I also unconsciously look for people in need of something-maybe they can’t get down the stairs. Maybe they are having problems opening the door or using the ticket purchase station. Wherever there is need, my eyes see them. I will go to someone if they need help and lend a hand letting them know, someone cares…I am there for them. It just feels like this is what makes life worth living.

I glance around on the train around me, looking for that shining light of God. Sometimes I see it when a person offers a chair to an elderly, and sometimes I don’t, when people are pushing each other to get into the train, I then see only their ego coming through. I just like to observe and see where people are in their different levels of consciousness. I do not judge them as evil, only as ignorant to the truth I have discovered that we are all one unit.

Next, I usually walk to work from the train. Here my steps get more confident in seeing glimmers of God everywhere or the opposite of God which is greediness, selfishness, etc. But by then, because my focus has been on the Godly things people have done for each other, the ungodly things do not phase me. I will be that person who stands up to others if they get too rude, loud, or in general are disturbing others. I tend to see it as a reminder as I scold, as in they should know better-the conscious part of them does.

On my way through the streets to my work, I occasionally smile to strangers or will gaze around me at the beautiful creation that God created for us. Even in its ugliest forms, there is still beauty and I see it. In a city with graffiti everywhere, it just shows me the sometimes “randomness and rebelliousness” of human nature. God is funny like that, we can stretch as far as we want away from the Source or God, but as soon as we get too far away, God pulls us back somehow with reminding us with laws and penalties we may experience in the world.

When I arrive at work, the reality sets in. I am here now to do a duty, and although we are all creations of God, I must now play a role as a teacher or guide to children and my staff. So I do. And I take my job seriously. I don’t let a single “hit or kick” go un-reprimanded on the playground. I am constantly spending my day teaching kids social behaviors that will help them keep the peace and make less enemies in life by their actions…as well as trying to show them that humanity needs them to choose to be good for the sake of being our next generation in charge.

As I watch all the young souls running around, I am reminded of how earth is much like a school and we all have our different journeys to go on, but we are at different levels of consciousness all the time. Allah/God in the Quran constantly asks, “Will they not ponder the words?” as in a way to get us to think first than react always emotionally from ego. Children react, and yes although they are sweet and innocent of many evils since their egos aren’t fully developed, they also are babies in their understandings of unity. They do not know that Suzy is just another spiritual creation of Tommy, and in order to make their experiences more fun, they shouldn’t hit one another when trying to get what they want.

My day goes in and out of consciousness levels, talking to adults and children. I connect to those during the day that are kind, and don’t take out their issues on others. If I am in a “mood”, I warn my staff to beware….I am in a lower state of mind that day. But these lower states of mind do not last long and actually with a simple thought or asking God for strength to get through the day, I am fine again and smiling.

They used to last for weeks, and it’s called depression. I used to feel so alone, like nobody cared, and when I finally realized that nobody will care unless I cared for them…that’s when things changed. I also discovered a loving force behind the universe as I learned about life on other planets and the millions of galaxies astronomers are discovering. I stopped being the victim and I took actions. I became a servant of good for God instead of sitting there and wasting this experience.

My days are filled with great joy in my understanding and I can make my perspective grow larger at crucial times and look outside of myself at others. I no longer take things so personally or think that people are mean or bad. Something happened to them, and I see it in children as well. When a child hits another or does something mean, it is because they are not feeling right inside. Something is bothering them, and I do my best to find out what it is to help them and clear that dark shadow away from their mind. Something caused this ignorance and as a teacher, I am here to educate them on what they missed.

When I go home at night, I think to myself how exhausted I am through my day and how I wish I could just rest forever. I often times will see me happily enter in the warm white light of heavenly bliss with all other good souls on earth, but I know I have a few things to do first. I am happy and grateful for the day and the lessons and joys I experienced. So by the time, I go home, I am ready to really unwind and experience love with my fiancé, that I have not gotten from strangers all day. Yes, he recharges my battery you can say and reflects back all the love that I gave out to others. He is my twin flame.

At night, before bed, I say a prayer again to thank the Lord for all the amazing blessings I have and to help me awaken others to be able to have them as well. It is not the most psychically exciting life right now at this moment (I don’t have kids yet ;)), but it is a rich spiritually one and really not much phases me..I am finally at peace when at one time I was not.

Ignorance of our unity and God’s goodness, is what makes a person evil. God does not create evil people…only gives them the free will to choose to have the knowledge that they need in order to become good.

And that knowledge is: Unity

Surah Hud: Chapter 11 (line 20-30) Hud

20. These will not escape on earth, and they have no protectors besides God. The punishment will be doubled for them. They have failed to hear, and they have failed to see.

21. Those are the ones who lost their souls, and what they had invented has strayed away from them.

22. Without a doubt, in the Hereafter, they will be the biggest losers.

23. As for those who believe and do good deeds, and humble themselves before their Lord-these are the inhabitants of Paradise, where they will abide forever.

24. The parable of the two groups is that of the blind and the deaf, and the seeing and the hearing. Are they equal in comparison? Will you not reflect?

25. We sent Noah to his people, “I am to you a clear warner.”

26. “That you shall worship none but God. I fear for you the agony of a painful Day.”

27. The notables who disbelieved among his people said, “We see in you nothing but a man like us, and we see that only the worst among us have followed you, those of immature judgment. And we see that you have no advantage over us. In fact, we think you are liars.”

28. He said, “O my people, Have you considered? If I stand on clear evidence from my Lord, and He has given me a mercy from Himself, but you were blind to it, can we compel you to accept it, even though you dislike it?”

29. “O my people! I ask of you no money for it. My reward lies only with God. And I am not about to dismiss those who believed; they will surely meet their Lord. And I see that you are ignorant people.”

30. “O my people! Who will support me against God, if I dismiss them? Will you not give a thought?”

My interpretation:

I had to go back to include line 19 to understand 20,  “Those who hinder others from the path of God, and seek to make it crooked; and regarding the Hereafter, they are in denial.”

These are the ones who will not escape the judgment of God and the truth of what they have done spiritually to people will experience the harsh truth of what they have done. They will become the loser of paradise because of this guilt they will carry when everything is shown to them.

The believers who do good in the world, have faith in something outside themselves and money, will be the rewarded of paradise. Possibly because they will have learned the lessons their souls need to and have detached from their egos enough to experience bliss.

While there is nothing wrong with someone who looses their sight or is born without sight, the parable is trying to show that someone who doesn’t believe is just like a deaf or blind person. They can not see or hear the Signs from the Lord and will remain in disadvantage of those who can, by their own choice.

Gabriel tells Muhammad that Noah as a messenger said to the people that he had messages to give and for people to heed the warnings. They thought he was just like him and did not take him to be specially appointed to anything, so they laughed at Noah and ridiculed him while blocking others from coming to him to listen to the words of God. They called Noah immature, and others ignorant for following him. But truly they were the ignorant ones.

Noah tried hard to get people to listen to him. He said that he only stands as clear evidence of guidance from the Lord and that he doesn’t want power or money, but only to warn the people. His rewards lies with God and he made sure to tell the people that no reward on earth was he after.

Here at the last line, Noah is asking for  the people to support him and to see that he would never dismiss a person in their curiosity to hear what he has to say. He has a duty to perform for God and fears for his soul to abandon it.

Joining Isis Is Really Joining the Devil:A Muslim’s Perspective

I am a bit wary these days with media coverage saying all these young muslims are joining ISIS. Especially when they are killing innocent civilians at this very minute in  Syria, what kind of muslim would really  want to be part of this nonsense? But let me offer my services to the angry and hurt muslims who may be out there thinking that joining a militant branch of Islam is the way towards God’s rewards.

Although we learn in the Quran that Muhammad’s need for his people to arm themselves and fight off the Mecca pagans who were oppressing them, I see ISIS as transgressors. When you read the Quran, you see a different energy than anger involved in the defense of Islam. It is a strong one that is backed by the angels and God of Creation. Muhammad was used as a tool to help take down the system of pagan child and human sacrifice and inequality in people not part of the elite class. Muhammad’s people would go about their normal lives as muslims and spend their time absorbing the revelations given to Muhammad and at the same time were prepared for war.

They would either march forward into Mecca when provoked by caravan attacks on the people of Medina, or they would stand their ground and defend their own land and places of worship. It was not done out of anger or revenge, it was done out of necessity to help spread a powerful message of Islam to the pagan Mecca leaders that did not hear or care to take seriously the words of messengers before.

That was in year 600AD. Now we are in year 2016, and we have the ability to see new ways of achieving peace. ISIS may be upset with the choices of others, but threatening, kidnapping and cutting off heads as scare tactics is not the Muslim way. It is actually against the laws of Islam to attack those that have not directly attacked you. It is not an open war fought against oppressors, it is scare tactics of terror to exact revenge and express anger. I see their disgusting videos on youtube, and I just get the instant vibe that these are very mistaken and mislead men. Some muslims have been wrongly lured that this violence is what God wants. But those muslims with understanding and heart know the difference between a honorable war fought against evil, and these terror tactics.

We are in a complicated situation these days. It is not WHOLE states or nations against others as it has been in the past. In Mecca around the 600s AD, in smaller civilizations to control,  people where manipulated to be against the new forming muslims. When ISIS attacks a whole nation, they are not rightfully judging who dies and who lives. Innocent people are killed in the cross fire today, and it seems they are far more concerned with exacting revenge than doing the right thing for God.

17:33

And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden, except by right. And whoever is killed unjustly – We have given his heir authority, but let him not exceed limits in [the matter of] taking life. Indeed, he has been supported [by the law].

5:32

Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors

 

And as far as suicide bombers here is what the Quran has to say about those who take their lives, to take other lives.

4:29

O you who have believed, do not consume one another’s wealth unjustly but only [in lawful] business by mutual consent. And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.

So really joining a militant rogue group is not really an army of God, it is dishonorable and cowardly. When you follow the darker side of anger and revenge, you follow Satan into the fire. Use the force for good, not evil. Remember Heaven is not a place, it is a space or dimension our souls can occupy if our consciousness is clear enough to do so. Do you really think ISIS men and women will have the cleared consciousness to achieve such a higher state? Not according to what I see in the news.

As I said before, it is hard to know the truth these days in the media. But I do believe there are some young muslims who see what is going on in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and feel helpless and want to exact revenge, so they are said to then join ISIS. I offer a new perspective.  It will take many people from all different faiths and nations to try to bring peace back into the world. It is not the path of God to exact revenge and blindly kill those who you see as an enemy. You have to be stronger than that. There are so many good people in Israel  and America as well, that declaring wars on whole nations just doesn’t work any longer. The wrong people are always killed and the acts are then used to represent all of Islam.

For this reason, I believe the leaders of ISIS to be minions of the devil. They have infiltrated Islam and are using the idea of war and self defense to terrorize people. I have watched their messages on youtube. They try to use the lines of Quran to twist them for their intent, but  many muslims know better. The interpretation that ISIS gets from the Quran shows them to be “transgressors” a word to be used to describe someone who goes over the limit of what is needed in the world.

3:7

It is He who has sent down to you, [O Muhammad], the Book; in it are verses [that are] precise – they are the foundation of the Book – and others unspecific. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah . But those firm in knowledge say, “We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord.” And no one will be reminded except those of understanding.

I doubt any ISIS members are on wordpress, but I hope to put my words out into the world and to help soothe the anger of young muslims who see the wars in the Middle East or experience it. Part of this test of this world is to see if we can remain good even though there is corruption and evil around us. While direct self defense of homes and loved ones holds honorable intentions, terrorism never does.  It all will be balanced in the end. Those who were killed by the acts of others will be shown justice. Don’t taint your own soul by following a path of revenge.

Do not use the Quran and interpret the words with the energy of anger and hate…that’s the path of Satan and leads you into the hellish Fire of the soul.

Fellow muslims, if you know a friend who is full of hate and anger, please share this post with them to remind them there is a higher perspective to be found in Islam.

Surah Hud: Chapter 11 (line 10-20) Hud

10. And if We give him a taste of prosperity, after some adversity has afflicted him, he will say, “Troubles have gone away from me.” He becomes excited and proud.

11. Except those who are patient and do good deeds-these will have forgiveness and a great reward.

12. Perhaps you wish to disregard some of what is revealed to you, and you may be stressed because of it, since they say, “If only a treasure was sent down to him, or an angel came with him.” You are only a warner, and God is Responsible for all things.

13. Or do they say, “He invented it?” Say, “Then produce ten chapters like it, invented, and call upon whomever you can, besides God, if you are truthful.”

14. But if they fail to answer you, know that it was revealed with God’s knowledge, and that there is no god but He. Will you then submit?

15. Whoever desires the worldly life and its glitter-We will fully recompense them for their deeds therein, and therein they will not be defrauded.

16. These-they will have nothing but the Fire in the Hereafter. Their deeds are in vain therein, and their works are null.

17. Is he who possesses a clear proof from his Lord, recited by a witness from Him, and before it the Book of Moses, a guide and a mercy? These believe in it. But whoever defies it from among the various factions, the Fire is his promise. So have no doubt about it. It is the truth from your Lord, but most people do not believe.

18. Who does greater wrong than he who fabricates lies about God? These will be presented before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, “These are they who lied about their Lord.” Indeed, the curse of God is upon the wrongdoers.

19. Those who hinder others from the path of God, and seek to make it crooked; and regarding the Hereafter, they are in denial.

20. These will not escape on earth, and they have no protectors besides God. The punishment will be doubled for them. They have failed to hear, and they have failed to see.

My interpretation: 

Gabriel is telling Muhammad that those who are prideful and haughty are in a slow downward spiral towards the punishment of the afterlife. Those who are patient and kind to others while remembering God, are the ones who will experience rewards of the hereafter.

Line 12 is one of the definite lines where we can see Muhammad was being talked to by a higher being. He is told by Gabriel that God knows the burden the revelations have laid on Muhammad as it has other messengers. Gabriel revisits what some have said to Muhammad at this point. People of Medina and Mecca are doubting Muhammad because of the lack of physical evidence of these revelations. They wish there was some sort of celestial object or an angel to appear in front of them. Instead they get wisdom passed through the mouth of a middle aged man named Muhammad.

This is PROOF that some of the Hadiths that said the Angel Gabriel has been seen by others in the sky is not entirely accurate. Nobody else saw the angel except Muhammad and perhaps he didn’t even physically see this angel, he only heard the voice vibrate through his entire being.

But this is all a test for the people as well as Muhammad. Those with true faith listen to Muhammad with tears in their eyes to the revelations. They know it is the truth and the mercy they have been waiting for. Those with doubt already in their hearts will listen to Muhammad, but not truly be able to understand what he means or where he is coming from and ask to see proof.

Muhammad is commanded at this point to ask these people with doubt while listening to him to produce their own just and morally perfect 10 chapters like this book. They are also asked to call upon their own gods and goddesses and see if they will even be answered with revelations such as this. When they realize they can not, Muhammad is then to ask them the final question if they will submit to God of all things.

For so many who look for just success in this world may receive it, but it is always the more permanent state of our souls that is most important and so Muhammad is to teach the people that a life just chasing glitter and gold will bring emptiness in the hereafter.

There is an idea that the true book from Moses is the real words of God and those who have altered the teachings for their own intentions and purposes will experience a great punishment since it caused so much division and bloodshed, including the blood of many messengers of God.

Everyone is given a chance to not be ignorant about faith and God. I have seen it in my own life and I know there is always that one moment where the nature of God’s existence comes into question in people’s minds. Those that seek to block the path of God for other’s are in the highest place of denial and disbelief and they are the ones who suffer the most karmically to what they have done spiritually to others.

I don’t want to go too far into it on this post, but if you look very closely in our world today you will see several groups of people who just would like to watch the whole world burn and become more isolated from God in thought and spirituality. These are the groups that oppress spirituality and are gaining momentum today in America’s society. I am not sure about other parts of the world, but I can SEE it today. These are the devil’s minions and God will bring justice in the end with punishment doubling because of how many people they have harmed.

 

“If anyone thinks that Christians regard unchastity as the supreme vice, he is quite wrong. The sins of the flesh are bad, but they are the least bad of all sins. All the worst pleasures are purely spiritual: the pleasure of putting other people in the wrong, of bossing and patronising and spoiling sport, and backbiting; the pleasures of power, of hatred. For there are two things inside me, competing with the human self which I must try to become. They are the Animal self, and the Diabolical self. The Diabolical self is the worse of the two. That is why a cold, self-righteous prig who goes regularly to church may be far nearer to hell than a prostitute. But, of course, it is better to be neither.”

~C.S Lewis

Jesus in Islam was more than a man: He was an example.

29. So she pointed to him. They said, “How can we speak to an infant in the crib?”

30. He said, “I am the servant of God. He has given me the Scripture, and made me a prophet.

31. And has made me blessed wherever I may be; and has enjoined on me prayer and charity, so long as I live.

32. And kind to my mother, and He did not make me a disobedient rebel.

33. So Peace is upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the Day I get resurrected alive.”

34. That is Jesus son of Mary-the Word of truth about which they doubt.

 

In a world torn apart by violence it is important to revisit the ancient texts to see actually WHAT each religion teaches. No longer can we just go by the priests, imams, and rabbi’s words-we must search for our own truth.

Each person has a filter, and personal intention behind their teaching people. I guess, my personal intention is to get people to see the interconnection and stop fighting. This is not every religious leader’s unfortunately and hasn’t been in the past. There is nothing special about me. I sit here at home just wanting to prove with the use of studying life connections to the scriptures the evidence of God’s unity. So I decide to do that with my time to help inspire others. I am not sure what goes through the head of a pastor of a Sunday church in Georgia, or an imam in an Islamic Institution, but I can say I have PROOF that Christians and Muslims believe in the same Jesus, but just have been interpreting his life and death differently.

As you can see in the above verses, Jesus DID die. He was raised UP alive. Christians think the same thing. But they were taught to believe that this made him God. Muslims are taught to see that God made Jesus His servant, as part of the Godhead, and allowed him to live again in a place we all long for and will ALSO return to.

It’s extremely complicated, but when you start to see your fellow beings as part of the same family under God and guided by the same light and love of God, it is easy to start to see the connection.

Let’s face it Muslims: Some of you have been too “literal”, too “logical” with your interpretations of Jesus as a messenger or prophet. He was never “just” one like Muhammad or Noah was. He was CREATED specifically with a purpose to talk as a baby with wisdom-what other messenger did this? None.

Jesus was also designed as Adam was to “be” and so he “became”. Jesus was born from a virgin Mary, and was made uniquely unlike any other human being on earth. To be a muslim, you must admit that.

The fork in the road between Christianity and Islam happens during the tale of Jesus’s death. In the Quran, he was plotted against by the Romans and Pharisees, but saved by God. To many Christians, this is blasphemy cause it means then that Jesus did not die for our sins. However, as we can see in the above verses that Jesus absolutely did die and was resurrected alive. We are not sure about the timing, since the Quran suggests that his death happened a little after the Romans killed him when there was a substitution to look like him. It is a mystery how this worked. How could Jesus die, but then also be saved by God?

In one way we can see a parallel is in the resurrection of Jesus in Christianity and Islam. Jesus was raised alive. So in my interpretation and way I would like to teach both Christians and Muslims to see, is that the corrupted actions of the Romans killing Jesus did not taint his spirit or “kill” his soul. When a person dies unjustly they do not really die. Their body may be gone, but they are then brought to a new place. Perhaps a new dimension that can appreciate a soul like that.

Yes, Jesus did die because the sins of man. He died cause he kept teaching spiritual wisdom in a world ruled by blind leaders.

This is how I have come to see Jesus’s death: It was a great teaching about the meaning of Life. When you die in service of being a good person, a servant of God. You are never dead. Physically you may be, but you are resurrected into something new. I believe God was trying to show this to human beings. But somewhere the idea that ONLY Jesus could be raised like this cause he was God in the flesh, got too heavy handed. A less severe approach to include all others is to see that Jesus’s resurrection was not about his specialness-although he was very special. It’s about all of ours, and how the evils of the world can not taint a pure soul that devotes their life to God and to helping others SEE him.

If you are Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, still looking, but not labeling yourself….and you are a good person who devotes themselves to putting more good in the world than bad energy-then you are saved from the black void of death, like Jesus was.

Satan Can No Longer Be Blamed.

Satan is not here on earth in physical form-not one physical form that is. Satan is not in an anti-christ baby or person right now alive on earth. Satan is inside people who allow “him” to be. Satan is inside the person who trolls the internet and gets joy out of bullying people. Satan is inside of a person who chooses to be greedy over sharing with others. Satan is inside of a person who is so angry that they have to lash out at others without thought-killing or injuring others. Satan is inside those who seek revenge instead of forgiveness. Satan is inside those who seek sexual gratification without love or care for the other person. Satan is inside those who delve into the excess of life in money, drink, gambling, and drugs, bringing more attachment to this earth. Satan is most certainly in the dictators and corrupt leaders of the earth creating loss for their own gain.

It is the dark side of our human nature that we must learn to overcome. In year 2016, we can no longer look for the creature with horns and a red body that does evil things to our world. We must now evolve to see that God guided us to realize the truth of Satan as the “prince of Air”. Air is everywhere and yet nowhere in physical shape or form. This is what the religious texts were trying to tell us. Satan is the desires and egos that get us off the straight path.

This should actually be comforting news to you. It means you have the power over Satan! It is all in you and the people whether evil reigns on earth or not. No longer can we blame an unknown entity for the evils and wrongs, now it is time to admit to our mistakes to our own selves and start to evolve as a species. The story of Adam and Eve in the Garden with the snake is symbolism with deep inner truths to our nature. We must take these ideas now and learn from them.

Yes, we still will be punished in the consciousness of hell if we follow Satan’s footsteps. It is karma and a consequence to being out of connection with God. Hell could very much could be the reliving of the pain given to others and feeling that same suffering back. Our punishment will not be dealt by God with a paddle and a bunch of demons, it will be by the balancing forces of God that create realizations and hard lessons to learn from-if you are not willing to learn from them at first.

Please stop blaming the devil on the evil in the world and start to be an active force to fight against the hate and evil. YOU are responsible. We are all responsible for allowing evil to happen on earth. If every human stopped listening to the whispers of their ego and selfish desires, there would no longer be a devil…and only God would be left to see shining out of people.

 

114:1-6

In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.

 Say, “I seek refuge in the Lord of mankind.

 The King of mankind.

The God of mankind.

 From the evil of the sneaky whisperer.

 Who whispers into the hearts of people.

 From among jinn and among people.”

The Hard Truth.

There is a terrible epidemic right now in the world. Mainly it has been happening through manipulation of the entertainment, media and new age spirituality we are in. Heaven is not a given.

What is most wrong with the world, is that many lazy, greedy, and evil people have been lied to…and they did it to themselves. Heaven is not a place where you will go to after you are done here. It is a state of consciousness. God didn’t create us in heaven, then give us life to walk around and just enjoy and learn. He did do this with the first intent upon creation. But then humans showed, through the first prototype of Adam, that they were subject to greed, laziness, and evil and a preordination to follow their own desires-not God’s. So we are here to learn. Not as a punishment, but to study hard and reach a sense of accomplishment.

So this is the hard truth, that I myself have come upon in my observance of the world. I asked God to see this and it is not easy. I too have to look at myself everyday and see if I go to bed with a person that I can be happy with. Many people in the world have been lied to by Satan’s minions that they don’t have to do anything while here and they just automatically go back to being angels with God.

 

Wrong. And dead wrong. We are here to work and to learn. We fell from the state of bliss consciousness and now we have to earn our right as a species and as individuals to come back to God. In a way, I do believe in reincarnation because we may be sent back to keep learning until we get it right and then can finally rest. To be honest, that sounds a little bit like hell to me.

It is HARD down here on earth. There are many beautiful moments because this earth came from a perfect source, but don’t for once be fooled into thinking this is just a temporary playground to frolic around and do what you want. This is a school to learn valuable lessons of love, giving, humility, honesty, and trust in our Creator. If you don’t study hard and treat this life as valuable resource to absorb all the knowledge you need to stand before God and say “now I am ready to fly with the angels”, then you will fall back down.

So mankind! Stand up straight. Mind your manners. Use your brain given. Please be kind to each other. Give to others who have less than you, you don’t need it anyways in the end of your journey. Fill your soul with good deeds, and make your heart light with God’s love. Cause it is time, there is no fooling around any longer. Our species has gotten too old mentally and spiritually now to act like this, and I hate to say this, but we are running out of time to prove ourselves as a species. Only individuals have deemed and redeemed themselves worthy of bliss, these are the ones we quote and admire. They are also the ones that God knows tries while nobody sees. So look at yourselves honestly. Time to be honest with ourselves, or remain forever lost. We all can get there, we just need to try.

 

Wake up world and really learn how to fly. Put the effort in, and you will really soar high.
