We Don’t Need a Trump…We Need a Healer.

I will not be voting for Donald Trump today, and it isn’t just because I am an American Muslim woman. It is because I am tired of the nation’s people being “egged” on to fight one another. I am really part of that percentage of people that wish to see a peaceful world, where people start to empathically connect to one another and understand where each and everybody is coming from. I look for examples of unity and harmony, not division. I believe that once mankind was united, and through manipulation they became divided. This keeps us from experiencing peace on earth today.

I am not looking for a sly business man as a leader, I am looking for a healer. America has had enough division and hatred in this nation. It is time to put down the weapons, and open up the blocked off chakras to let go of the anger and hurt. We need a leader that will encourage this. Not someone who is going to put us back 50 years into a time of racial suspicion of each other. It’s time to see war as separate from the individuals that are part of it, and see war as a profit making machine for those invested in them. It is time to see blacks, white, and caramel colored skin as offering the same shield or barrier to house an unique soul on a journey. It is time, in 2016, to have a president or a leader that has healing qualities.

I can’t say when the end times are near, nobody knows when our planet will be destroyed and the story of mankind is up. But the revelation of Jesus coming back to usher in a new earth full of peace and prosperity for all, doesn’t sound like a bad idea right now. While it may not be Jesus who is offered as our next leader, we can start cultivating the next set of leaders who will usher us into this paradigm of peaceful realization of the soul.

I still feel we are a little far away from everyone living in accordance to natural law without governance, but I believe mankind is heading towards this potential and voting for Trump will just make us regress instead of progress in this spiritual awareness of one another.

I am ready for a consciously advanced person to be in charge. Someone who can teach humans stuck on lower chakra levels how to relieve themselves of unnecessary pain and suffering. A leader that can teach about detachment to material wants, and encourage goals that will fulfil the soul..that’s what America  needs. We need a Muhammad as a messenger tapped into higher wisdom, a Dali Lama or divinely created being Jesus. We definitely don’t need Trump who is stuck on the red chakra  level of survival.

We need a leader who is already climbing up the ladder to higher consciousness and awareness. We don’t need leaders who can’t even see the first rung.

If you agree with me, please like this post and share it with your friends. Pass on the idea and maybe one day, we will inspire the next set of healers to set up and become a leader.

The Movie Risen: Jesus’s Precious Gift of Joy

One thing that I noticed about this particular movie was the absolute JOY that the disciples shared knowing Jesus. It was actually quite fun watching them smile, hit each other friendly over the back in brotherhood, and generally be all “giggly” together. I found myself sitting there with a smile on my face.

It got me thinking as I sat there, I too feel these moments of pure spiritual highs and joys, and it really is the best feeling in the world, quite possibly universe. How fun it is to be able to feel so happy that even in threatening of their death, the disciples laughed with delight knowing what they knew.

They were no longer scared or feared death. They were in a pure state of joy to know that everything in the end is beautiful for those that believed in Jesus’s message.  Just as the Buddha taught about detachment of this material world, these disciples reached it and you could tell in their happy smiles. This gift is passed down to us now, as we think about the coldness and cruelty of the world, we know in our hearts that somewhere lies a place of pure joy and bliss for those that search deep enough to find it.

Mary Magdalene left smiling to herself.

The Movie Risen: A Muslim’s Perspective.

Just came back from Risen, and I am a little out of it, it was beautifully done in my eyes, and I feel a bit spiritually “high” I guess you can say. I am not sure how it did in the box offices in terms of money, but there were only 10 people in the theater…sad times indeed, when so many need to hear the message.

I liked this movie, I saw the unity in the idea that Yes, Jesus was a product of divine manifestation to teach important messages and ways of salvation to the people. They showed him in an interesting light. Jesus never asked to be worshiped, but only told his followers to worship God above. One particular scene was when Jesus was sitting on a rock gazing at the stars, and told Clavius the Roman, to get to know Him in order to reach peace…the power that created the Universe they were both staring up at.

I want to do more research on this, but the movie showed Jesus literally popping in and out of dimension and then at the end gone in a flash of light, which looked as if he entered a portal of some sort…

It really makes you think, was Jesus an advanced being from another reality or dimension able to visit us, and become our Mercy from God?

I don’t know the answer, but because of my faith in his existence and historical significance, I can sleep easy tonight knowing there is indeed a loving power guiding us always.

I recommend it.

The Middle Way and My Awakening.

The “Middle Way” is the place between fanatical ideas about salvation from your only branch of religion, and no religion at all. It is the self realization that nothing matters most in life other than worship and devotion to being good, kind, wise and evolving and doing your part on earth in gratitude and humility that you were 1 out of million sperm chosen to be born from a womb and brought into this life.
I have awoken to the fact many years ago that Buddha, Krishna, Jesus, Muhammad, and many others not listed and listed in historical records have only tried to keep the momentum of human evolution going in order to reach our highest potential of created beings. I am not alone in this idea, and this link below shows how spiritual teachers from different nations connect.
For me this awakening or realization has created a deep feeling of unity and brotherhood/sisterhood to the nations of people. I have no borders in my mind in nations or religions, I only see that we all came from the same source and in our own way are taking a journey (short or long) to get back one day.
I didn’t post this to debate about it, I posted this to show a different perspective on worship that aims to stop the rights from being taken away to people with faith, and stops the persecution from those who have not found a conventional pathway to God.
In the end, we all go back to wherever we came from originally… and there is no debate about that. Our time is short here, so spend it wisely without fighting and arguing with malice in your hearts. I have learned in my 33 yrs on earth so far, to enjoy the moments given to you…and to see the expression of life and love everywhere.
I hope humanity reaches it’s fullest potential one day, and I wish I could be alive to see it’s peak reached. For now, I am enjoying how much we have grown over the years, subjects on empathy and other’s preservation is at the forefront of many people’s minds. We are in exciting times indeed, and I root for us to keep going.
Below is a link to a page I found while searching for the meaning of the Ginkgo tree, which happens to be the name of my wedding venue we are trying to book in 6 months. I found that first part of this site give the secret I have found Islam to bring people to those who truly study the words of the Quran in depth. Yes, all spiritual teachers have been delivered as Mercy by God to allow us to live on another day and stretch ourselves into the furthest reaches of evolution.

Top Quran Lines & Verses That Can Make You Love Jesus Even More.

I love Jesus. I do not worship him, but my heart is brimming with love for his sense of divine self and humanity given to others. He was a wonderful being divinely created for a higher purpose for us. I love him for who he was, and who he will be eternally as a prophet, messenger, and physical representation of the love that God has for humans sent as a Mercy to us.

Here are the top Quran verses to make you love Jesus EVEN more than you already do. ❤

2:87 And We did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure Spirit.

2:253 Those messengers – some of them We caused to exceed others. Among them were those to whom Allah spoke, and He raised some of them in degree. And We gave Jesus, the Son of Mary, clear proofs, and We supported him with the Pure Spirit.

3:45 [And mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary – distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah ].

3:48-49 And He will teach him writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], ‘Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah . And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead – by permission of Allah . And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.

3:52-55 But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, “Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah ?” The disciples said,” We are supporters for Allah . We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him]. Our Lord, we have believed in what You revealed and have followed the messenger Jesus, so register us among the witnesses [to truth].” And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners. [Mention] when Allah said, “O Jesus, indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you [in submission to Allah alone] superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return, and I will judge between you concerning that in which you used to differ.

3:59 Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, “Be,” and he was.

5:46 And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.

21:91 And (remember) her (Mary) who guarded her chastity: We breathed into her of Our spirit, and We made her and her son a sign for all peoples.

43:59 Jesus was not but a servant upon whom We bestowed favor, and We made him an example for the Children of Israel.

43:61 And indeed, Jesus will be [a sign for] knowledge of the Hour, so be not in doubt of it, and follow Me. This is a straight path.

43:63 And when Jesus brought clear proofs, he said, “I have come to you with wisdom and to make clear to you some of that over which you differ, so fear (respect) Allah and obey me.

57:27 Then We sent following their footsteps Our messengers and followed [them] with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. And We placed in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy and monasticism, which they innovated; We did not prescribe it for them except [that they did so] seeking the approval of Allah . But they did not observe it with due observance. So We gave the ones who believed among them their reward, but many of them are defiantly disobedient.

61:6 And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.”

19:12 [ Allah ] said, “O John, take the Scripture with determination.” And We gave him judgement [while yet] a boy And affection from Us and purity, and he was fearing of Allah. And dutiful to his parents, and he was not a disobedient tyrant. And peace be upon him the day he was born and the day he dies and the day he is raised alive.

19:16-21 And mention, [O Muhammad], in the Book [the story of] Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east. And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned man. She said, “Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me], if you should be fearing of Allah .” He said, “I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy.” She said, “How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?”  He said, “Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, ‘It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed.’ “

19:30-34 [Jesus] said, “Indeed, I am the servant of Allah . He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and charity as long as I remain alive. And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive.” That is Jesus, the son of Mary – the word of truth about which they are in dispute.

19:36[Jesus said], “And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.”

5:118 Jesus will say…If You should punish them – indeed they are Your servants; but if You forgive them – indeed it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

 

True Muslims see Jesus as a divine being created from God for an example of our potential for humanity and a Mercy to us.

Edgar Cayce Was a Man of Understanding: Jesus in Islam.

“Essentially, the readings present Jesus as our “Elder Brother,” a soul who came to show each one of us the way back to our spiritual Source by perfectly manifesting the laws of the Creator. Part of His mission was to fully demonstrate the living awareness of the Spirit in the earth-something each one of us will eventually have to do. Therefore, Jesus’ life of service to others serves as an example for all of humankind. ”

~Excerpt from Edgar Cayce’s readings on Oneness.

I Salute You.

Does God the Creator create people differently? Not so sure…I think we all are made of the stars and have the same elements. It may be the idea different people unlock different parts of ourselves that makes one a hero vs. another a tyrant…maybe in the  “junk” DNA?

We do know Jesus was created differently by God in the story of his birth.

I would like to think we all have potential to be service to positive change on earth, and many just choose to ignore the call.

To those who have chosen a path to be different and not just reach for this world’s rewards and do think about the hereafter, AND  about leaving this world in a better state than what you were born into ….this is for you.

 

I salute you!

A Harry Potter Experience: Compassion as Power.

I vividly remember a friend once tell me that she tried to read the Quran, but it was too “harsh”. She didn’t like how the tone or voice of the Quran was written as. I at first became offended, but then I thought deeper about it. Yes, It does seem a bit more stern than perhaps the Bible, but I liked it. Humanity still had not learned the lesson of establishing peace on earth for others after Moses or Jesus, and so the message is given more “urgently”. This doesn’t bother me.

I am a bit more of a serious person and while watching a marathon of Harry Potter movies, this past week, I noticed that the series is written and filmed in this way that I can relate to.

Some people didn’t like the Harry Potter series, or called it too dark and disturbing. The truth is that when dealing with evil and good, the reality is not always light hearted. Yes, there is pain and suffering and those that enjoy seeing it in others while they get some sick sort of gain or power. We see this in Voldemort’s character and his band of “death eaters, they are a sorry bunch bent on causing as much pain and chaos in the world of wizards, as they can.

What really made me think, was the idea of compassion that Harry Potter fought hard to finally bestow on Voldemort in the Order of the Phoenix. As he is able to go into the memories that he holds with his friends Hermione and Ron, and see he had love in his life, he is then able to scream that he pities Voldemort because he has no friends or love. Immediately Voldemort loses power over Harry’s body and is vanquished to return again in the next movie. Compassion at this point was a power and a defense against the “dark arts”.

So this made me deeply see compassion as not just a “nicety” we should have for others. It is a stern and fierce act of love. It is a powerful force of correction or to bring balance back into the world. I am not sure if compassion would work on someone robbing you at gun point, I haven’t been in that place or situation to try, but I can see compassion as a way to view those who act as an enemy to you-less in control. Having compassion for someone is not always just the “nice” thing, but it is the stronger choice out of hate and anger.

When Muhammad was told several times by Gabriel to not fight the Mecca leaders unless they fought him and his people for spreading new awareness, the angel was trying to give strength to the movement of Islam. Seeing your enemies in a new light of not having control over your actions and choosing to show compassion when direct self defense is not needed is a powerful tool for change. When you are mocked, bullied, ridiculed, harassed emotionally it may help to see the person doing the harm as someone who is “without” and they see you as a target for their anger, fear, and sadness.

Bullying and people trying to emotionally harm you will not go away. There are movements to bring awareness to bullying, but it is a byproduct of human nature when one person is trying to take energy that they subconsciously feel is missing. One way to disarm a bully or someone trying to get under your skin is to see them with compassion and pity the situation they are in, in order to cause them so much pain that they feel the need to hurt others.

This is hard work. I know. It took book and movie number five for Harry to get to this point of realization of Voldemort not having love and friendship ever in his life. When you see people for what they may lack in the moment when they are trying to gain from you, it may become a super power against their attacks. In the face of evil, goodness must always be stronger and take the higher road that the other would not take. It’s your role as a good person and as a servant of God to bring more compassion and love into this world. Having compassion is becoming the teacher to the student once you reach this point of awareness, and you never know who you may help find the light again.

Compassion is a part of love and it is a great weapon against evil.

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.

Pelaginist Christians and the Islam Connection.

I just finished watching the  Netflix movie, “King Arthur”. I watched with tears in my eyes for the showing of King Arthur as a righteous man who actually freed the serfs from torture and death under the hands of cruel Roman Catholic lords and leaders.

In 467 AD the movie takes place just about when Muhammad was said to be born a few years later.  What I found fascinating is that Arthur was a Catholic, but did not approve of the torture and murder of the pagan Brits coming from the Celtic regions, called “Woads”. He actually meets Guinevere by rescuing her from death under the hands of roman priests said to be doing the “work of God”. Of course, knowing what we know today we can look at this scene of torture with absolute disgust and see this is indeed not the work of God, but instead the work of cruel men.

After the movie, I was interested in learning more about the movie and went to read about it deeper. I find out that in this particular film directed by Antoine Fuqua, Arthur is shown as a devote Christian, but follows the teachings of Pelagianism, which many considered heretical at the time and surprisingly today. I am starting to like the Christians that were considered “heretical” by the Catholic church. They seem to be the ones who think on their own and really follow the teachings of Christ without following man.

Pelagianism is the belief that original sin did not taint human nature and that mortal will is capable of choosing good and evil without special Divine aid from the church. Sounds a lot like Islam, actually. In the Quran there is no middle man granted to get you into heaven such as a priest or bishop. It is simply what you do on earth and your relationship with the creator.

I am not sure if King Arthur really was a pelagianist and as gallant of a character he is depicted in this movie as he reunites all pagan and religious brits together allowing diversified belief in Britain once again when he becomes King. But I will say that his form of Christianity expressed in this movie shows a connection to Islam and the way the Quran guided us. These were peaceful pagans who just wanted to live their lives with their own beliefs. Muhammad too was guided to teach the pagans of Mecca, but if they did not fight them, then there was no need to fight as the Quran revelations teach.

I am not suggesting at all that Muhammad took the ideas from the monk Pelagius who rejected the idea of the Augustinian concept of salvation through faith alone. What I am proposing is that these are the types of Christians that Islam is recognizing in line 2:62:

Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans – those among them who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.

These were the Christians that were not listening to the ideas of men that say you had to follow the church and seek salvation from a priest alone through rituals and loyalty to the priests. And instead looked for salvation through good works and a good heart, these were the brothers and sisters of the Muslims reaching the same wisdom about God at the time.

5:82

..and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers those who say, “We are Christians.” That is because among them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant.

Pelagius was indeed our Christian brother monk, my fellow Muslims.
