A True Test of a Higher Enlightenment

Jesus crying over the earth

When we become “enlightened” it means that there is a recognition of the existence of a Higher Source, and there is a Higher Code of Conduct that what we see and hear. When it comes to the Divine Laws of Love, we uphold them at all costs, even if it means to the point of death. Evil will try to break you down in every earthly aspect of your life. However, those who are truly enlightened will not put value in such things. God asks us to look beyond the 5 senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching; and to “feel truth”. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and a constant feeding of the soul through prayer and the Word of God, we will see that the Divine Laws of Love are the ruling parameters in the Divine Eternal Kingdom.

If we look at the life and death of Jesus Christ, and even the saints that are declared, their lives demonstrated such earthly parameters that would resemble simplicity in every aspect, from the heart and mind of the individual walking the path to the Eternal Kingdom; and even a life that does not value worldly things, for its happiness. Such souls never feel alone, because of recognizing the Omnipresence of a Higher Source that controls and conducts the Eternal Kingdom, in the Divine Laws of Love. Those that are not truly enlightened will be imprisoned by the parameters of the world, to which God, the Father of Creation, does not hold Himself to. Such souls will see earthly shortcomings as failures, where God says His Blessings are not of this world; and He is not bound by this limited world. Those that are enlightened by the Eternal Divine Laws of Love will see no boundaries in achieving their own happiness, and as a result, though downtroddened only but for a moment (due to Evil’s attempts to discourage such an enlightened soul off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom) will bounce back up due to the presence of the Holy Spirit within such a soul.

We must remember that true enlightenment comes from understanding that there is more to eternity than the boundaries set by this world. It is beyond what we sense with the 5 senses of the human body. We always seek a Higher Source for the wisdom that is ageless, and drives the logic of Eternity. God does things that are beyond the imagination of any Creation’s logic and ways of thinking. This is why He is the Creator. He does not conform to the ways of His Creations; but we are called to strive to seek His ways. So if God says His Ways are beyond the world’s ways, why would His Rewards conform to the ways of the world that He says that are not His? We should reconsider our path to Enlightenment if we are not hit by trials, to refine our thought processes…..because Satan never feels threatened or insulted by a soul that conforms to his ways, therefore no trials come to souls that do not threaten his goal of taking as many souls away from the path to the Eternal Kingdom. False hope and understanding will come to those that depend on earthly rewards and ways, for their faith on the path to the Eternal Kingdom. If we look at the lives of all those that dedicated themselves to a life serving and seeking the path of the Eternal Kingdom and Enlightenment, we will see that such souls do not think in carnal ways; they will value things that are considered simple by those imprisoned to value the things of this world…a world whose ways that God said His Ways are not a part of.

Darkness Needs Light to Survive; Light Does Not Need Darkness to Survive

mlk

The title of this entry is a pretty strong statement. However, it is the truth. When we think of wavelengths and frequencies as to how people’s energies exude, when we are “happy” or at “peace” we see that this can stand alone, all on its own. We, can go on our merry way pretty much on our own. It is until there is a dampening of these frequencies, in the forms of “depression”, or “saddness”, or “frustration” that we see that these lower frequencies need higher frequencies, or darkness needs light, to get out of that low frequency.

We see the same thing happening with all living things. Those in Darkness can not stay long in darkness. Why you may ask? Because living things were all originally made by the Omnipresent Living God….they were originally made to remain in the Light. Darkness was not meant to be in the world. This is why those in Darkness constantly seek Light. It becomes unbearable. Darkness will settle for moments of Light, to gain some relief from Darkness.Because living things were not meant to be in Darkness, when they are constantly in it, without knowing of a constant Light Source, it can die. Therefore this is why Darkness, has almost a parasitic effect on Light. It needs it to almost survive. But their source of Light is not coming from a constant source, in fact it can have the danger of injecting its own darkness into their light source. This can result in more darkness spreading.

You see those in the Light or of Light will always be in the Light because their source of Light is constant and never changing in its frequency, and that is the Omnipresent God. Despite what the earthly circumstances are, God is constant, timeless, and everlasting. If your source of Light is constant in Love….constant in Light….constant in Peace….you will have an endless supply of it. If you just seek for it, unceasingly. Despite the earthly circumstances around you, you will always have it. It will give one the strength to put service of others, before yourself. It will give one the strength to love beyond your whole self. It is the a source of strength, that is always willing and yielding to provide whateever is needed.

We see that Light is a force that can bring about selfless acts, ways filled with unconditional love, and nonviolence. Because it knows of a higher source of Light…the Omnipresent God. Darkness, in order to fight for its own existence, whether its intentions are deliberately wrong or not, will do it at all costs; bringing about ways that are selfish, are of conditional love, and violent. There is self control with those in the Light; and none in Darkness. Light never needs Darkness to survive. Light never needs to go to the ways of Darkness to survive.

Human nature became dark, once sin was introduced in the Garden of Eden. Yes, we should understand that we have a sinful human nature, that we are flawed because of this; born as sinners because of the darkness that was introduced by evil at that time. However, by looking to God, the Father of Creation, we have a constant source of Light. To kill that sinful Human Nature, we are to become selfless, unconditionally loving, and steer away from Darkness, as a result. This is not only a lifelong struggle, but an obligation, once THE Light Source has been revealed in our lives. To have that Light Source to have taken root within us, we will see that living for others is not a burden, but a duty in our lives. That to do what is the Creator’s Will of our lives, is our duty, not a choice. People will only look for peace in their thoughts and meditation with God, because they are getting replenished from the Light Source. Prayer is the communication with the Light Source. That giving in to the Darkness of Human Nature is actually wrong, because their heart, soul, and their very being will tremble at dirtying what has been already purified by the Light Source.

This is why Jesus Christ was able to do what He did at the Cross.

A Daily Examination of the Conscience to Refine Your Conscienceness

Conscience

 

We are so quick to point out the flaws in others, yet do we see the flaws in ourselves? Often pride gets in the way of allowing us to see our own flaws. We are required to examine our conscience, in order to free ourselves from the shackles of evil. There is no compromise to this because evil will try to make its way, in any way it can, not only into your conscience, but also to take root in your soul, and grow like a weed, suffocating any light to which God, the Father of Creation, has seeded within. There is a constant refining of the soul that needs to be done, and it must become a daily routine for us to “clean out our closets”, so to speak. This is when the Holy Spirit can establish His Roots within us, and flourish through you, within this dark world, for the Eternal Kingdom.

I have learned that even the past events that we THINK we have gotten over or resolved in our lives, could have possibly made deep wounds within ourselves, that can give a foothold to Satan and his demons to slowly rot away at your soul, without recognizing it, and laying it at the feet of Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay), who fights on our behalf, against against such things, is the only way we can COMPLETELY HEAL the deep wounds. We must remember that God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) is pure love. What Jesus Christ did on the Cross at Calvary, as God in the flesh, was showing and becoming the purest form of unconditional love. So there is no room for any impurity within ourselves, when it comes to entering the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven. Because we are born with a sin stained human nature, which was conceived within Mankind at the time Adam and Eve decided to rebel against God’s command to them, by eating of the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, it is REQUIRED that we continuously examine our conscience for what we do in our lives. Our thoughts….our actions….our words. We are to humble ourselves to a God, who sees all, as an Omnipresent Being, and recognize what we do in violation of His Divine Laws of Love. We are all guilty of something. While we see 10 of our own flaws, God sees 100 x 100 more. Jesus Christ, saw something worthy in Mankind, that was worth dying for, on the Cross at Calvary. Through the perfection that He was while He roamed on this earth, by dying on the Cross, He covered us through the Blood He shed on that day, from evil.

We must remember that we, as Mankind, because of our sin stained human nature, are not worthy in being in the Presence of a Perfect God. Out of His Unconditional Love, He gives us the chance, everyday, to CHOOSE OUT OF OUR FREEWILL, to see Him in all. Otherwise, as being God, He could easily destroy all that directly violate His Divine Laws of Love, which are ways of Unconditional Love, Mercy, and Forgiveness. But all of this requires a humbling of ourselves…of ridding ourselves of any pride within…and to recognize when we ourselves are in direct violation of unconditional love. Examination of the conscience is not a one time deal….it is a lifelong process. It requires a changing of ourselves, to the original greatness that God, the Father of Creation, knew He created for us to be. We may realize this when we are young….or we may realize this, within our last breaths. Nonetheless, God judges based on a complete transformation of a heart and soul, to which He can only see as the Perfect Omnipresent Being that He is. It is nothing of the self….but being selfless in nature.

Jesus Christ requires for us to love all, unconditionally. He requires us to not fellowship with evil at the same time. This not only includes physically not associated with evil; but also dissociate from the very things that evil has creeped in within ourselves, through past pains, hurt, and anger. He requires us to take a way that is beyond the ways of this world (to which God clearly says that His Divine Ways do not conform to the ways of a world that asks us to give in to our sin stained human nature; but are Divine in Nature, and conform to the ways of the Heavenly realm). We are asked to cover those very areas in our lives by the precious blood of Jesus Christ, so that evil will not take a foothold within ourselves of such things, to give birth to deep wounds to anchor itself to. We should change at the same time by humbly offering those things at the feet of God, to provide His Strength to overcome them with unconditional love; instead of giving in to our sin stained human nature to give rise to personal anger, pain, and vengeance. We must realize the Power of God’s Unconditional Love. We take for granted of being in His Presence at this moment…we take for granted that we are not guaranteed to wake up the next day, it is only God’s decision for us to be able to do so. While we are so busy on focusing on the preservation our outer physical bodies; we are allowing for our souls and inner bodies to rot away, to which is the ONLY thing allowed to pass on to Eternity, whether it be destined to be damned or to be blessed to the heavenly realm. We are too busy nourishing the outer body…instead of “feeding the soul” within.

Examination of our conscience is a requirement so that we understand of the Existence of a Perfect God…and our imperfections. He gives us the choice, hoping that we will chose to live in ways of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, which is selfless in nature. This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life, and Death on the Cross. Though having all of the power to strike down anyone that harmed Him or ridiculed or mocked Him….He did not. So we must practice “turning the other cheek” at all costs….because this is what God meant that “Love conquers all”….He sees all injustice done towards those who have taken these words and Jesus Christ’s Teachings to heart…and will get justice for them all, in the eternal realm, in a permanent way, for He is the only One who is allowed to take vengeance for His Children…and as the Creator, to destroy what is in direct violation of His Divine Laws of Love. Our human mind can not comprehend seeing the world beyond what we view with our 5 senses, but it does not mean that it does not exist. It only means that we rely on God, the Father of Creation, to show us through the Holy Spirit, as to seeing what is beyond the things of this world. The Holy Spirit guides those who examine their conscience everyday, to ways of life that are pleasing to God, the Father of Creation, and will lead them in ways the uniformly love, unconditionally…to uniformly forgive, unconditionally….and to uniformly give mercy…unconditionally. For the present form of the world today, is not because of God. It is our choice for allowing Evil to seep in that much within our conscience…within ourselves…to give in to our sin stained human nature in the form of the mortal sins of 1) Greed; 2) Gluttony; 3) Sloth; 4) Envy; 5) Wrath; 6) Pride; and 7) Lust. The more we understand this….the better off we will be in our Spiritual Enlightenment. Leading to the present condition of the world today…

Spiritual Thinking Vs. Spirit Filled Thinking: Manmade Thinking vs. Divine Thinking

Quote of God's Wisdom

In this day and age, there are many travelling on a spiritual journey. Many trying to seek answers to the things of this world; through a force or source that is not of this world. Essentially I think this all comes down to one common understanding amongst Mankind, that human logic has its limitations. And that there is a Higher Force/Source out there that can provide insight to things within our lives. Yes, the proof that there is Existence in God.

But what is the difference between “spiritual” and being “spirit filled”? I often debated this very principle in my mind. And to be honest, I’m still not quite clear on this. However, there is one thing that I have come to understand for certain is that there is a different in approach and way of thinking. While spiritual thinking emcompasses numerous schools of thought; spirit filled thinking is guided by one certain belief. For me, the conclusion that I have come to is that if one is certain in what they believe in, once can emcompass both. However, for the betterment of Mankind, we have to be mindful of whether we are guided by Divine Thinking, or by that which is not so divine. This is the struggle that Mankind has encountered since Adam & Eve fell to sin, in the Paradise of Eden. A struggle that God is very much aware of. This is the very reason why God’s Graces and Love is so abundant and endless in supply, that He gives us the FREEWILL to choose to seek His Divine Logic. He gives us till the last breath in our earthly bodies to seek and find this, so that not only will be “Spiritual”, but also “Spirit filled“. I think out of the 2, it is most hardest for man to become, “spirit filled”. Being divinely spirit filled, truly does require you to break away from the ways of this world; and to even not give in to human nature (which is vulnerable to sin). God says He is not of the ways of this world; but beyond them. And Jesus has said that “Truth is not seen or heard; but felt…”; which requires us to rely on logic and guidance that is in ways of Love, Peace, and Nonviolence, which all require a strength that is beyond our human nature.  If it was within our human nature, the world would not exist in the current condition that it is.

Does anyone every achieve, the balance between the 2? Very few. It is a lifelong journey, to which only the Higher Source, God, can determine if that balance was achieved. However, while we are on our spiritual journeys, we will begin to see a difference in our way of thinking. And such a journey will become the focus of our entire existence. Once this thinking has become engrained in us, and has taken root, it will ben reflected in our everyday actions. What we have to realize is that because this is a lifelong journey, to which God, Himself, determines the beginning and end of it, we will have a constant struggle between falling on and off the path. The most important thing is to get back on. God knows this struggle so much of us, which is why He sent Jesus Christ, His Son, to reestablish the direct pathway that we once had with the Father of Creation, that was originally destroyed by the introduction of sin by Satan, in the Garden of Eden, and with Adam & Eve’s fall to this sin. He wanted us to tap back into His Endless Unconditional Love, to be guided by His Multidimensional Logic, which defies all boundaries that have defined this world. That is why those who have a balance between the two, see what it means when God says His Ways are not of this world, but beyond them. That the ways that truly considered great in the Eyes of God, are quite the contrary to what the world defines as great.

The prime example of this is to see how a little infant or child lives their life.  The things that we would consider as the simplest of things in this world, is what brings great joy to a child. They have no fear to love; and at the same time, very sensitive to the pain the world can cause them. Yet at the same time, they quickly move on, to continue on loving. Haven’t you ever seen a child being more amused by the box or wrapping paper that their toy gift, came in? They are often ok playing by themselves; or even playing with others. They are often content “beating to their own drum/tune”; so to speak. God speaks to these pure hearts quite often. Because it has not been jaded by the ways of this world. This is what God means to have “faith like a child”. To reach our fullest potential, spiritually, we must not allow for the ways of this world, to jade our hearts and souls. Otherwise this could block out God, and His Divine Enlightenment in our lives.

Remember, Divine Logic are ways that understand that the creation can never be equivalent to the Creator; and not having the authority to determine which of the Creator’s creations to eliminate or not. A way of NONVIOLENCE. It is a way to which is confident in the spiritual enlightenment one has found, and will have unshaken LOVE and PEACE in such a heart and soul, despite the chaos in the world around them. This lifelong journey is one that God asks for us to be in constant communication with Him. To experience a type of Unconditional Love that fill every void that a human soul could experience by the ways of this world. Such a soul reflects this spiritual balance….and is undeniable by all that come in contact with it.
