The OA: How It Connects All Religions.

I just finished the most amazing Netflix series called the OA. You can say it affirmed my belief we are entering into a new paradigm shift or have been in one now, for those who are aware of it. While watching it, I realized that it had several religious components all in one series:

Christianity: Had one of the characters sacrificed for the others, kept in the cage to try to escape, and he was laying down in a way Jesus was said to lie down on the cross with his hands and feet placed in the way of the crucifixion.

Judaism & Islam: In Judaism it is said to have a well of souls that is used to give birth to souls and then they come to earth. When the well has no more souls, that is when the Last Day for mankind is. When the OA comes back to the Well of souls, she is then in a space that is filled of galaxies greeted by an Angel who speaks Arabic. We see this as galaxies to denote that Allah is known as Lord of the Worlds, so there are multi universes, and we also see an Angel speaking Arabic, named Khatun, which is Turkish meaning “noble woman”.

Buddhism: The premise of having compassion for all beings, even the evil ones is where the dance comes from. The movements are showing a move towards compassion towards those who are asleep spiritually and do evil to others. Buddhist believe that peace towards others, is the act of being water putting out the fire.

And then there are a few nods to other ancient spiritual paths,  the Slavic god of the Underworld is the wolf that appears on the hoodies of the two angels, and even the religious rites of the ancient people which is why the dance is very tribal like and early human like.

This show brings all paths together under a very important premise: We all can choose to be angels in the moments needed, specifically when we need to save someone we see in pain or about to do evil. She is the OA “Original Angel”, but she is not the only one. She travels to dimension after dimension opening hearts and minds, to show the angelic selfless nature that they too can possess. They become copies of her, as she is the original, she turns them into angels that then do heroic deeds and stop great evil from happening.

In Islam, the moral integrity is high. Allah expects much out of humans, enough goodness where a person is full of pure intentions towards others. This is the only way that the gates of Heaven open up for a soul and the angels welcome them. It does not matter how many mistakes you make and ask for forgiveness, you just have to be awakened and conscious as a person to always have the best intentions carried in your heart for others. Allah will SEE that.

We see this through the different characters. Steve is a troubled teen that is violent and lashes out angrily in the world when he feels rejected or hurt. And the OA teaches the audience, Steve’s teacher and Steve, that all he needed was for someone to believe in his “invisible self”. His inner goodness is his invisible self, his true nature that gets hurt and hurts back in defense. His visible self is what he chooses to show the world. This very much is a subject of Ego vs. the Authentic Soul.

I loved this show, because I am someone who believes as a muslim, since we all come ONE source of Creation, we are all parts of this creation and are connected in ways we can not see. I also believe that love, beauty, and truth will always defeat the evil in the world. The dance opened not only higher dimensions, but it was used to open up hearts and minds fostering higher dimension of thought. Watch the terrorist’s eyes at the end, how mesmerized he is by the beauty of the selfless act of this dance.

I studied this amazing last scene and figured out the dance is five steps to a new dimension as a group because each move is a stage of awareness that we as a people need to have in order to stop any evil in the world and move forwards:

1st move: There is evil, I see your evil…I attack or defend back.

2nd move: There is evil in you because of your pain.

3rd move: I am aware of your pain, I feel it too. Let me help. Let me take it away.

4th move: I am aware of my strength to protect others as well as you and I will as an Angel.

5th move. I send forth love and light to bring free your chains of darkness, open your heart and mind to stop the evil, and open a new path of opportunity for joy to you. I SEE you.

Sounds like these steps can take earth into a new paradigm of peace and understanding as the Quran was constantly trying to usher into humanity. But the interpretations became messed up and ego got in the way, instead of authentic souls trying to bring people together.

The message of this show is:

Even though we are individual souls on a journey, we are all in this world together. When we open our hearts and minds to one another, we remember this and our “wings” of joy can carry us into higher life experiences together. We then create peace, not war, which is more authentic to who we are. Which is what all religions and the Angels have tried to guide us towards. 

The last scene sent chills of splendor and happiness down my spine. If you like pure spiritual beauty and experiencing it, I highly recommend this show.

I have carpal tunnel…

 I am starting to get carpal tunnel syndrome and my wrists badly hurt…it started a few weeks ago, and I am in a lot of pain now. I am not sure if I can continue my writing career until I heal for awhile.
I wanted to thank all my followers for the support they have given. I am sad, I didn’t get to finish the full Quran interpretations, but I hope in the near future I will be able to, along with new observations and spiritual connections.
I just wanted to say, please:
 vote smartly and through your heart and higher consciousness on Nov. 8, and I wish you all the best.

More Thought On the “Join Together” Command from God. It’s Serious.

Surah 13: 19-21.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 -Those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the contract, And those who join what God has commanded to be joined, and fear their Lord, and dread the dire reckoning.

2:27 Who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined and cause corruption on earth. It is those who are the losers.

13:12 But those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined and spread corruption on earth – for them is the curse, and they will have the worst home.

This is the ultimate command from God to join religions together, even if it is only in the heart and mind. This is the path of Islam and a Muslim’s duty. Many people talk about unity of Religions like it is a new idea only thought of today by loving people. It is not. It is an ancient one hidden for a very long time and many are rediscovering. God always intended for humans to realize their innate unity and join back together with the worship of One Invisible God. There was never supposed to be this many sects and branches of religion, to cause this many wars and ego battles between who is right and wrong.

It says it right there, if you are on the side of unity and in your mind you understand it, you are a person of Understanding as far as the Quran speaks about. You are also on the side of the Angels, and are a doer of Good.

If you are constantly trying to disconnect people and cause rifts in people’s thinking that a muslim is spiritually different than a christian, or vice versa, you are playing with fire. You are literally going against what has been ordained by God. You are preventing a unification process from happening and this is against God and the Angels. If you did not know this, stop right now, and ask for forgiveness in your ignorance you did not understand what God really wanted from us. If you keep on this path, be warned this is the path of those who will be considered the losers and inhabitants of Hell.

Religious unity and equality isn’t a new age buzzword..it is an ultimate goal for humanity.

Archangel Haniel says…

I found this interesting information on the web..that I want to help share. Only cause I feel the same way about humans.
Archangel Haniel says:
“Yes, Impatient with humanity because I can see all the good they’ve created. For every moment of intolerance, there are hundreds of deep kindnesses to overshadow the darkness. The light of humanity shines brighter today than ever. If you could see humanity from my point of view, you’d know why I have such deep regard and love for you all. I’m happy to help in whatever cause advances humanity above the din of clashing egos, and elevates you to the level from which you have come: God’s grace and eternal beauty.”

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.

Top 24 Most Beautiful Quran Lines & Verses to Share

I picked out the Quran verses that the media does not care to share, and that false websites about Islam gloss over or have twisted for their own agendas. Beauty to me is seen in Justice, Redemption, Unity, Brotherhood/Sisterhood, Love, Mercy, Equality, Truth, Kindness, Goodness, Protection, Charity, and Nature.

These are the top ten beautiful verses of the Quran, that their beauty and love for mankind can not be denied. Please share to show another side of the Quran.

2:11o And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity: And whatever good ye send forth for your souls before you, ye shall find it with Allah: for Allah sees Well all that ye do.

2:115 To Allah belong the east and the West: Whithersoever ye turn, there is the presence of Allah. For Allah is all-Pervading, all-Knowing.

2:148 To each is a goal to which Allah turns him; then strive together (as in a race) Towards all that is good. Wheresoever ye are, Allah will bring you Together. For Allah Hath power over all things.

2:164 Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of the night and the day; in the sailing of the ships through the ocean for the profit of mankind; in the rain which Allah Sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth; in the change of the winds, and the clouds which they Trail like their slaves between the sky and the earth;- (Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise.

2:177 It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces Towards east or West; but it is righteousness- to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; to spend of your substance, out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity; to fulfil the contracts which ye have made; and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the Allah-fearing.

2:179 In the Law of Equality there is (saving of) Life to you, o ye men of understanding; that ye may restrain yourselves.

2:190 Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.

2:212 The life of this world is alluring to those who reject faith, and they scoff at those who believe. But the righteous will be above them on the Day of Resurrection; for Allah bestows His abundance without measure on whom He will.

3:103 And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah’s favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided.

3:134 Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men;- for Allah loves those who do good.

5:13But because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words from their (right) places and forget a good part of the message that was sent them, nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few – ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for Allah loveth those who are kind.

5:42..If thou judge, judge in equity between them. For Allah loveth those who judge in equity.

7:189 It is He Who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature, in order that he might dwell with her (in love). When they are united, she bears a light burden and carries it about (unnoticed). When she grows heavy, they both pray to Allah their Lord, (saying): “If Thou givest us a goodly child, we vow we shall (ever) be grateful.”

11:90 Shuiab said “But ask forgiveness of your Lord, and turn unto Him (in repentance): For my Lord is indeed full of mercy and loving-kindness.”

89:24-30 He will say: “Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!” For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict, And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind. (To the righteous soul will be said:) “O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction! “Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him! “Enter thou, then, among My devotees! “Yea, enter thou My Heaven!

2:62 Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] – 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.

6:61 And He is the subjugator over His servants, and He sends over you guardian-angels until, when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him, and they do not fail [in their duties].

16:32 The ones whom the angels take in death, [being] good and pure; [the angels] will say, “Peace be upon you. Enter Paradise for what you used to do.”

16:49 And to Allah prostrates whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth of creatures, and the angels [as well], and they are not arrogant.

25:25 And [mention] the Day when the heaven will split open with [emerging] clouds, and the angels will be sent down in successive descent.

75:22-23 Some faces, that Day, will beam in brightness and beauty…Looking at their Lord.

33:43 It is He who confers blessing upon you, and His angels, that He may bring you out from darknesses into the light. And ever is He, to the believers, Merciful.

2:25 And give good tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds that they will have gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow. Whenever they are provided with a provision of fruit therefrom, they will say, “This is what we were provided with before.” And it is given to them in likeness. And they will have therein purified companions, and they will abide therein eternally.

18:31 As for such, theirs will be Gardens of Eden, wherein rivers flow beneath them; therein they will be given armlets of gold and will wear green robes of finest silk and gold embroidery, reclining upon throne therein. Blest the reward, and fair the resting-place!

109:6 Say, “For you is your religion, and for me is my religion.”

5:119 Allah will say, “This is the Day when the truthful will benefit from their truthfulness.” For them are gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever, Allah being pleased with them, and they with Him. That is the great attainment.

21:104 The Day when We will fold the heaven like the folding of a [written] sheet for the records. As We began the first creation, We will repeat it. [That is] a promise binding upon Us. Indeed, We will do it.

 

There are so many more beautiful verses, but these are the ones that stood out to me most and have touched my heart.

The Place Where Polytheists and Monotheists Connect

I will say that whatever tells a polytheist that all gods are valid and connected to one another as creators- that force that connects them together in one culture or religion, is my idea of God.

Where a pantheist says all religions have truth in them and all gods are equal, behind that notion of interconnection is God.

Where a pagan or animist that worships all things non living and living equally-put it together and all of it is God to me.

I see unity everywhere and in every religion…cause God brings it to me by letting me know that all mankind was once one nation.

We may have different perspectives, but we are the One Soul created by the One Big Bang.

Humanity is One Soul from the start of Adam (Atom)…never forget that interconnection ❤

Quran 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.

21:04

The Day when We will fold the heaven like the folding of a [written] sheet for the records. As We began the first creation, We will repeat it. [That is] a promise binding upon Us. Indeed, We will do it.

2:213

Humanity used to be one community; then God sent the prophets, bringing good news and giving warnings. And He sent down with them the Scripture, with the truth, to judge between people regarding their differences. But none differed over it except those who were given it-after the proofs had come to them-out of mutual envy between them. Then God guided those who believed to the truth they had disputed, in accordance with His will. God guides whom He wills to a straight path.

I thank God for guiding me to this path of oneness as a Muslim, and to look at everything with the eyes of eternal love and balance.

A Lesson In Empathy #1: Manners In Public Spaces

This is of course not for those following my blog, they resonated with the words I have wrote so you are aware of this level of empathy. I thank you for taking time to read and to hold my hand energetically. 🙂

This is for those who have forgotten that part of themselves and feel a bit distant from others. They can not quite see the connection, but they happened to stumble upon my blog and are reading it right now in whatever time and place that they are at.

This lesson is not to condemn, nor ridicule. It is to REMIND you of what you are as a human and what you have the potential to create on this planet. I understand that most humans want peace and love. But many don’t know HOW to get it. I like to teach using personal examples since I find people connect ideas more to their own life to really take it in.

Example 1:

I was at the movies last night to watch The 5th Wave,  and I noticed that at a 9:55pm movie there were two babies in the theater crying. There were people talking loudly, not whispering to each other, texting with the light blinding others views. I was not the only one unhappy. I could here several times “hushes” from the audience to quiet the others down. My unrest happened most when I felt others at unrest. The rudeness of others was impeding on everyone’s experiences to relax and escape into a 2 hour film. The babies at the movies that late at night, is unacceptable. The movie was about aliens invading the world. Loud noises. bright lights. scary sounds were evading their little ear drums making them cry out for their mothers. One of the mother’s had her baby sitting on the stair in the dark, asking to be tripped over or stepped on by another. It took everything in my power not to run to that child seat and bring that baby to the mother and tell her not to keep him on the stair for others to step on in the dark. It was strange to see so many people unaware of others at the same time. Talking loudly was a couple sitting next to me about their dinner, and not the movie. Please wait and know there is a time for everything. If you have a small child please think about how the crying will affect other’s experiences when you bring them to an adult movie. I know others can relate, this is not an alien story to many.

When we share a shared space as humans, we need to start to see them as having the same need as ourselves. So thoughts have to literally become like this:

“If I bought a ticket to see a movie and spent my hard earned cash, then others have too and I need to be respectful and quiet to ensure that they enjoy themselves just as much as I do.”

I know it may seem like a little thing, but empathy starts this way. It is a seed that grows into a global awareness of others that rushes forwards.

So next time you are in a public space with others, try to imagine what YOU would like to get out of the experience and treat others in this way. Maybe you don’t care about your own experience and are wasting time and money, but then you need to go even further outside yourself to create peace for others.

When we start to see each other in this way in the public spaces we share in our communities, this will start to extend outwards towards others NOT in our public space and we will in turn will come together against injustices and stand up for what is impeding on other’s experiences.

Please share this not as a scolding, but a reminding of the empathic creations we were created to be. I am not perfect and need this reminding too. We are not inherently selfish, this is a choice we make. We know this because acting in this way once we become aware does not feel good. Emotions are a thermometer for how our path is aligning towards truths or falsehoods.
