Now, let me tell you what the catalyst is - it's you! Do you believe it or not? "Kryon, I want to believe it, I want to believe it!" Good! Then why don't you show it? Many of you are going to leave here the same, but others are going to have a bigger light. This is the real issue. How married are you to the status quo and the idea that it can never change?

That's the message of Kryon. Oh, there will be more, but for now, dear ones, don't be afraid of the love of God. You are an ancient culture that exposed the one God to the planet. Now expose what the one God can do in this new energy!

Old souls all over the planet are listening to this. It's the same message for them. I say to them, that's why you're here. That's why you're here. I've seen it before. Collectively, you control the speed of this shift. A very few of you can make a great change with what you do personally with yourself right now.

What a beautiful message this is! Doesn't it feel like it has come from the one God? With all that you know, and with all that your lineage tells you, feel it! God shines on humanity right now with a light that was never there before, because you're ready and worthy to go forward into peace.

Think of these things.

And so it is.

Tengriism

Tengri, the religion of the Mongols, is a heaven worship cult. Tengri, is the supreme God, he has a creator son, named Bai-Ulgan who is second only to Tengri.

If this sounds reminiscent of Christ, it should.

Below is the universe origins

>ORIGINS OF THE UNIVERSE - COSMOLGY

There are many variations of the creation story, Tengriists believe these to be the main two:

In the beginning Tengri created Kishi, a companion, and together they flew about above the primordial deep. Kishi, however, aspire to fly higher than his creator and in his arrogance lost the power to fly, as a result he fell into the depths of the sea. From the deep he called to Tengri to save him whereupon Tengri caused rocks and earth to rise from the waters to create the primal mound of creation and earth to stand upon, from which he caused the Cosmic Tree (the tree of life) to grow. From the branches of this tree the people of the world and lesser gods emerged. He called forth (the personification of) Evil which he then caused to be guarded by dogs and snakes. It is said that in time Tengri and the Evil One will battle for the control of creation. Yer (Earth-Spirit) and Tengri existed in harmony and complemented each other. Yer gave man a material shell, but his soul (Kut) was given at birth by Tengri, who took it back after death. Tengri determines the path of one’s soul and longevity and rewards and punishes. Khagan ascended the throne as the son of Tengri, for it was Tengri who had given Khagan to his people and it was he who punished those who turned against their ruler. A man became Khagan, and lived under Tengri’s protection only for as long as he himself lived by Tengri’s laws.

Tengri is a pure, white goose that flies constantly over an endless expanse of water, which represents time. Beneath this water, Ak Ana ("White Mother") calls out to him saying "Create". To overcome his loneliness, Tengri creates Er Kishi, who is not as pure or as white as Tengri and together they set up the world. Er Kishi becomes a demonic character and strives to mislead people and draw them into its darkness. Tengri assumes the name Tengri Ülgen and withdraws into Heaven from which he tries to provide people with guidance through sacred animals that he sends among them. The Ak Tengris occupy the fifth level of Heaven. Priests who want to reach Tengri Ülgen never get further than this level, where they convey their wishes to the divine guides. Returns to earth or to the human level take place in a goose-shaped vessel.

110:7.4.Subsequent to mortal fusion the Adjusters share your destiny and experience; they are you. After the fusion of the immortal morontia soul and the associated Adjuster, all of the experience and all of the values of the one eventually become the possession of the other, so that the two are actually one entity. In a certain sense, this new being is of the eternal past as well as for the eternal future. All that was once human in the surviving soul and all that is experientially divine in the Adjuster now become the actual possession of the new and ever-ascending universe personality. But on each universe level the Adjuster can endow the new creature only with those attributes which are meaningful and of value on that level. An absolute oneness with the divine Monitor, a complete exhaustion of the endowment of an Adjuster, can only be achieved in eternity subsequent to the final attainment of the Universal Father, the Father of spirits, ever the source of these divine gifts.

110:7.5.When the evolving soul and the divine Adjuster are finally and eternally fused, each gains all of the experiencible qualities of the other. This co-ordinate personality possesses all of the experiential memory of survival once held by the ancestral mortal mind and then resident in the morontia soul, and in addition thereto this potential finaliter embraces all the experiential memory of the Adjuster throughout the mortal indwellings of all time. But it will require an eternity of the future for an Adjuster ever completely to endow the personality partnership with the meanings and values which the divine Monitor carries forward from the eternity of the past.

110:7.6.But with the vast majority of Urantians the Adjuster must patiently await the arrival of death deliverance; must await the liberation of the emerging soul from the well-nigh complete domination of the energy patterns and chemical forces inherent in your material order of existence. The chief difficulty you experience in contacting with your Adjusters consists in this very inherent material nature. So few mortals are real thinkers; you do not spiritually develop and discipline your minds to the point of favorable liaison with the divine Adjusters. The ear of the human mind is almost deaf to the spiritual pleas which the Adjuster translates from the manifold messages of the universal broadcasts of love proceeding from the Father of mercies. The Adjuster finds it almost impossible to register these inspiring spirit leadings in an animal mind so completely dominated by the chemical and electrical forces inherent in your physical natures.

The origin of religion

Did religion come before or after written language was invented?

What is the "proto-religion"? Is it the honor of the dead?

Do animals have religion?

Propaganda and all that aside. What do you believe is the oldest religion still in use today? The Indians say it is Hinduism, but that's dubious because the actual concept of hinudisn as an organized religion did not come until after its revival from when India was recovering from Muslim conques. Hinduism is just the conglomeration of many personal deities and local gods.

my religion

I'm a Christian but this is what was communicated to me by ethereal entities.

So whats going on? Well see the ethereal is real. Certain groups insert thought forms into the ethereal recesses of your mind. The thought forms normally negative energy create creatures in your mind that can alter conciousness, insert thoughts, speak, move independently. Every thought form seeks the same power to enter the astral. Where they can propagate and act freely, feeding off the energy of peoples conciousness.

Groups? Not sure but monroe institutes research provided the mechanical means for non spirtual thought forms to propagate.

Those most strongly affected are mental "sensitives" taking the brunt of their flagerant use of thought forms.

Sleep is when you are most vulnerable to these thought forms. Working in the foreground.

Ethereal is the astral and inner planes where ideas and archetypes can form and function without the physical.

Alexy is my thoughtform he will form and flow eventually propagating the astral.

But there are others in my head pushing for space and activating predatorial nature within me.

To gut, stab maim / end your life before you end anothers.

Seals and sigils to protect your back that simple nothing else, excovations as well.

Magic is a lot like creation.

Sigils - symbols concoted to cement meaning and cause change.

Demons they exist, archetypal thought forms striving for the status of gods. They insert their symbols into your thought streams to cause you to call them fourth.

Gods power exchangers. Devotion brings their power into your life not nessecerily into you.

Thought form - thought form is a general term for a entitiy or object that only exist within the ethereal.

Exvocation - its like a cleaning of the mind opening doors letting out the heat.

Monroe bots - artificial thought forms whose only purpose is to disturb forcing you to become controled.

Follow the 10 commandments Exodus 20 3:17

1:3 “You shall have no other gods before[a] me.

2:4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

3:7 “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

4:8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

5:12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

6:13 “You shall not murder.

7:14 “You shall not commit adultery.

8:15 “You shall not steal.

9:16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10:17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Cognitive restructuring

Cognitive restructuring (CR) is a psychotherapeutic process of learning to identify and dispute irrational or maladaptive thoughts known as cognitive distortions,[1] such as all-or-nothing thinking (splitting), magical thinking, over-generalization, magnification,[1] and emotional reasoning, which are commonly associated with many mental health disorders.[2] CR employs many strategies, such as Socratic questioning, thought recording, and guided imagery, and is used in many types of therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and rational emotive therapy (RET). A number of studies demonstrate considerable efficacy in using CR-based therapies.[3][4][5]

Cognitive restructuring involves four steps:[6]

Identification of problematic cognitions known as "automatic thoughts" (ATs) which are dysfunctional or negative views of the self, world, or future based upon already existing beliefs about oneself, the world, or the future[1]

Identification of the cognitive distortions in the ATs

Rational disputation of ATs with the Socratic method

Development of a rational rebuttal to the ATs

There are six types of automatic thoughts:[6]

Self-evaluated thoughts

Thoughts about the evaluations of others

Evaluative thoughts about the other person with whom they are interacting

Thoughts about coping strategies and behavioral plans

Thoughts of avoidance

Any other thoughts that were not categorized

The Religion of the Samurai

7. The Awakening of the Innermost Wisdom.–Having set ourselves free from the misconception of Self, next we must awaken our innermost wisdom, pure and divine, called the Mind of Buddha,[1] or Bodhi,[2] or Prajña[3] by Zen masters. It is the divine light, the inner heaven, the key to all moral treasures, the centre of thought and consciousness, the source of all influence and power, the seat

[1. Zen is often called the Sect of Buddha-mind, as it lays stress on the awakening of the Mind of Buddha. The words 'the Mind of Buddha' were taken from a passage in Lankavatara-sutra.

2. That knowledge by which one becomes enlightened.

3. Supreme wisdom.]

of kindness, justice, sympathy, impartial love, humanity, and mercy, the measure of all things. When this innermost wisdom is fully awakened, we are able to realize that each and everyone of us is identical in spirit, in essence, in nature with the universal life or Buddha, that each ever lives face to face with Buddha, that each is beset by the abundant grace of the Blessed One, that He arouses his moral nature, that He opens his spiritual eyes, that He unfolds his new capacity, that He appoints his mission, and that life is not an ocean of birth, disease, old age, and death, nor the vale of tears, but the holy temple of Buddha, the Pure Land,[1] where be can enjoy the bliss of Nirvana.

Then our minds go through an entire revolution. We are no more troubled by anger and hatred, no more bitten by envy and ambition, no more stung by sorrow and chagrin, no more overwhelmed by melancholy and despair. Not that we become passionless or simply intellectual, but that we have purified passions, which, instead of troubling us, inspire us with noble aspirations, such as anger and hatred against injustice, cruelty, and dishonesty, sorrow and lamentation for human frailty, mirth and joy for the welfare of follow-beings, pity and sympathy for suffering creatures. The same change purifies our intellect. Scepticism and sophistry give way to firm conviction; criticism and hypothesis to right judgment; and inference and argument to realization.

What we merely observed before we now touch with heart as well. What we knew in relation of difference before we now understand in relation of unity as well. How things happen was our chief concern before, but now we consider as well bow much value they have. What was outside us before now comes within us. What was dead and indifferent before grows now alive and lovable to us. What was insignificant and empty before becomes now important,

[1. Sukhavati, or the land of bliss.]

and has profound meaning. Wherever we go we find beauty; whomever we meet we find good; whatever we get we receive with gratitude.

Prophecy_of_the_Popes

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophecy_of_the_Popes

The Prophecy of the Popes basically says that Frances, the current Pope, is the last Pope there will ever be, or possibly next to last.

I think Frances represents the line: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit." I see a couple things that could END the Catholic Church in our lifetimes.

1.) The PA pedo scandal, where over 300 "holy men" were responsible for molesting THOUSANDS of children and covering it up for the last 70 years. Rumors are there are more to come, with investigations ongoing in multiple US States and around the world. A South American cardinal and the Australian arch bishop (or whatever) have already stepped down. The Vatican is trying to get Wurel out of the US to a nonextradition country to avoid prosecution (and spilling the beans).

Could the church collapse under a the weight of the corruption and pedophilia it's carrying today? If PA is any indication, there are at least 7500 pedo holy men just in the US, and a whole network of coverups. How many victims? 25,000? 100,000? Millions around the world?

No one can talk their way out of that situation. If were all exposed at once, the church would be DONE.

2.) The Islamic invasion of Europe. Either by force, physically attacking churchgoers in Europe, or by typical fascist PC culture - the actual Vatican and the Catholic church could be shut down. "Gosh, we want to be inclusive right? We don't want to alienate our new Muslim "citizens" right? Let's build mosques everywhere and start tearing down churches."

What do you think? Is the Church DONE in out lifetimes?

THE BOOK OF PLEASURE (SELF-LOVE).

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF ECSTASY.

DEFINITIONS.

The words God, religions, faith, morals, woman, etc. (they being forms

of belief), are used as expressing different "means" as controlling

and expressing desire: an idea of unity by fear in some form or

another which must spell bondage-the imagined limits; extended by

science which adds a dearly paid inch to our height: no more.

Kia: The absolute freedom which being free is mighty enough to be

"reality" and free at any time: therefore is not potential or manifest

(except as it's instant possibility) by ideas of freedom or "means,"

but by the Ego being free to recieve it, by being free of ideas about

it and by not believing. The less said of it (Kia) the less obscure is

it. Remember evolution teaches by terrible punishments-that conception

is ultimate reality but not ultimate freedom from evolution.

Virtue: Pure Art

Vice: Fear, belief, faith, control, science, and the like.

Self-Love: A mental state, mood or condition caused by the emotion of

laughter becoming the principle that allows the Ego appreciation or

universal association in permitting inclusion before conception.

From poverty to power; or, the realization of prosperity and peace

If, O reader! you would realize the Light that never fades, the Joy that never ends, and the tranquillity that cannot be disturbed; if you would leave behind for ever your sins, your sorrows, your anxieties and perplexities; if, I say, you would partake of this salvation, this supremely glorious Life, then conquer yourself. Bring every thought, every impulse, every desire into perfect obedience to the divine power resident within you. There is no other way to peace but this, and if you refuse to walk it, your much praying and your strict adherence to ritual will be fruitless and unavailing, and neither gods nor angels can help you.

Rather than ironically shitpost about worst case wwiii scenarios Egyptians believed the written word would affect reality or super depressing self-loathing blogposts like other boards, I challenge you to post the most positive events in this thread.

Goodposting is typically avoided on imageboards in anticipation of a slew of hate, irony, sarcasm responses.

Good, positive, best-case scenarios take effort to imagine, and even more effort to support and encourage, which is maybe why so many avoid it.

to the spiritual realm, wherein is life eternal.

101:10.5 The purpose of religion is not to satisfy curiosity about God but rather to afford intellectual constancy and philosophic security, to stabilize and enrich human living by blending the mortal with the divine, the partial with the perfect, man and God. It is through religious experience that man's concepts of ideality are endowed with reality.

101:10.6 Never can there be either scientific or logical proofs of divinity. Reason alone can never validate the values and goodnesses of religious experience. But it will always remain true: Whosoever wills to do the will of God shall comprehend the validity of spiritual values. This is the nearest approach that can be made on the mortal level to offering proofs of the reality of religious experience. Such faith affords the only escape from the mechanical clutch of the material world and from the error distortion of the incompleteness of the intellectual world; it is the only discovered solution to the impasse in mortal thinking regarding the continuing survival of the individual personality. It is the only passport to completion of reality and to eternity of life in a universal creation of love, law, unity, and progressive Deity attainment.

. It is the indwelling Adjuster who individualizes the love of God to each human soul.

5.11 At times I am almost pained to be compelled to portray the divine affection of the heavenly Father for his universe children by the employment of the human word symbol love. This term, even though it does connote man's highest concept of the mortal relations of respect and devotion, is so frequently designative of so much of human relationship that is wholly ignoble and utterly unfit to be known by any word which is also used to indicate the matchless affection of the living God for his universe creatures! How unfortunate that I cannot make use of some supernal and exclusive term which would convey to the mind of man the true nature and exquisitely beautiful significance of the divine affection of the Paradise Father.

2:5.12 When man loses sight of the love of a personal God, the kingdom of God becomes merely the kingdom of good. Notwithstanding the infinite unity of the divine nature, love is the dominant characteristic of all God's personal dealings with his creatures.

DIVINE FORGIVENESS

174:1.1 For several days Peter and James had been engaged in discussing their differences of opinion about the Master’s teaching regarding the forgiveness of sin. They had both agreed to lay the matter before Jesus, and Peter embraced this occasion as a fitting opportunity for securing the Master’s counsel. Accordingly, Simon Peter broke in on the conversation dealing with the differences between praise and worship, by asking: “Master, James and I are not in accord regarding your teachings having to do with the forgiveness of sin. James claims you teach that the Father forgives us even before we ask him, and I maintain that repentance and confession must precede the forgiveness. Which of us is right? what do you say?”

174:1.2 After a short silence Jesus looked significantly at all four and answered: “My brethren, you err in your opinions because you do not comprehend the nature of those intimate and loving relations between the creature and the Creator, between man and God. You fail to grasp that understanding sympathy which the wise parent entertains for his immature and sometimes erring child. It is indeed doubtful whether intelligent and affectionate parents are ever called upon to forgive an average and normal child. Understanding relationships associated with attitudes of love effectively prevent all those estrangements which later necessitate the readjustment of repentance by the child with forgiveness by the parent.

174:1.3 “A part of every father lives in the child. The father enjoys priority and superiority of understanding in all matters connected with the child-parent relationship. The parent is able to view the immaturity of the child in the light of the more advanced parental maturity, the riper experience of the older partner. With the earthly child and the heavenly Father, the divine parent possesses infinity and divinity of sympathy and capacity for loving understanding. Divine forgiveness is inevitable; it is inherent and inalienable in God’s infinite understanding, in his perfect knowledge of all that concerns the mistaken judgment and erroneous choosing of the child. Divine justice is so eternally fair that it unfailingly embodies understanding mercy.

174:1.4 “When a wise man understands the inner impulses of his fellows, he will love them. And when you love your brother, you have already forgiven him. This capacity to understand man’s nature and forgive his apparent wrongdoing is Godlike. If you are wise parents, this is the way you will love and understand your children, even forgive them when transient misunderstanding has apparently separated you. The child, being immature and lacking in the fuller understanding of the depth of the child-father relationship, must frequently feel a sense of guilty separation from a father’s full approval, but the true father is never conscious of any such separation. Sin is an experience of creature consciousness it is not a part of God’s consciousness.

174:1.5 “Your inability or unwillingness to forgive your fellows is the measure of your immaturity, your failure to attain adult sympathy, understanding, and love. You hold grudges and nurse vengefulness in direct proportion to your ignorance of the inner nature and true longings of your children and your fellow beings. Love is the outworking of the divine and inner urge of life. It is founded on understanding, nurtured by unselfish service, and perfected in wisdom.”

The Gita

I am seated in the inner psyche of all beings. The memory, Self-knowledge, and the removal of doubts and wrong notions about God come from Me. I am verily that which is to be known by the study of all the Vedas. I am, indeed, the author as well as the student of the Vedas.

There are two entities in the cosmos: The changeable Temporal Beings, and the unchangeable Eternal Being (Spirit). All created beings are subject to change, but the Spirit does not change.

The Supreme Being is beyond both the Temporal Beings and the Eternal Being. He is also called the Absolute Reality that sustains both the Temporal and the Eternal by pervading everything.

Because the Supreme Being is beyond both Temporal and Eternal; therefore, He is known in this world and in the scriptures as the Supreme Being (Absolute Reality, Truth, Supersoul).

The wise one who truly understands the Supreme Being, knows everything and worships Him wholeheartedly.

Thus this most secret transcendental science of the Absolute has been explained by Me. Having understood this, one becomes enlightened, and all one's duties are accomplished, O Arjuna.

CO-OPERATION WITH THE ADJUSTER

110:1.6 Today you are passing through the period of the courtship of your Adjuster;

and if you only prove faithful to the trust reposed in you by the divine spirit who seeks your mind and soul in eternal union, there will eventually ensue that morontia oneness, that supernal harmony, that cosmic co-ordination, that divine attunement, that celestial fusion, that never-ending blending of identity, that oneness of being which is so perfect and final that even the most experienced personalities can never segregate or recognize as separate identities the fusion partners—mortal man and divine Adjuster.

Don’t Let the Transformation Get You Down

You are never alone, surely you know this by now! It is up to you to utilize this boundless resource of love and support and wisdom and guidance and healing and expansion, continually. You are an individual spark, but you are also a part of a vast network of One Purpose and that is the radiant expansion of light in the universe. Every small drop, gesture, effort, contributes to the ever-expanding whole. This is your work. This is your purpose. This is your great reason for Being. Everything else is detail! Everything else is the deliciously rich human experience, no matter how you look at it. You are specific and vast at the same time. You are individual and collective; you are special and common; you are finite and infinite. By now this is really not news to you, but your experience of it in every moment is. You are breathing this consciousness now and it is rich. In the past, and at times, it has the potential to make you crazy chaos confused, but oddly, it has come to make sense without your effort to define or understand it in the old terms. You are multidimensional and omnipresent. You are beginning to experience yourself as Divine in human form…more than ever before. Wild, isn’t it? And at the same time, it seems perfectly normal… And so it is with the realization of all that you are. It was always so, was it not?!

And so, what do you do with it? That is the question! You persevere in the midst of constant change and transmutation to continue to expand your capabilities in all ways…you are becoming more! In the usual paradox, what feels like slow death is actually continual rebirth (a bit like lava flow!). Just keep breathing. Trust that this is so. Do not let the transformation get you down. Keep your focus on the intention, which is to continue to grow in the light. Meanwhile, keep on keeping on with all that is bright and good and calm and purposeful in your life…do what brings you joy and then more of that. Make choices for what uplifts you and others around you and relinquish what does not. If you have unfinished business at hand, complete it, for this is not about shirking responsibilities or the importance of discipline to accomplish your previously-set goals. They can be re-evaluated consciously as they call your attention, but stay with the plan…without allowing any aspect of it to diminish you. If it is doing so, then you must reframe it so that it works for you, not against you. This is the warrior’s quest…to accomplish the task without diminishing your light…for the journey is to acquire more light, not relinquish it to the deterrents, barriers or naysayers of it. Don’t let the turkeys get your down also applies here. Remember, as an agent of the light, you are there for example and inspiration to others. You don’t have to become an evangelist, just a beacon by your example. Your presence alone is enough. Your constancy is enough. Your perfect imperfection is enough. You are enough.

Expect miracles. Things are changing rapidly and miraculously. Trust that this is so. Trust that in the outer appearance of falling apart, things are actually coming together. Another paradox! The best is yet to come is the best adage to hold now, for it helps you persevere amidst the – what seems like continual – contractions. Keep breathing yourself through your own birth. Things are continually changing even though you might feel stuck. You need only intend that you are growing and changing for the better and that you are expanding your capabilities in all ways and that your extra-senses are redeveloping to assist you navigate a new world so that you can actively participate in it. All the while you are a beacon for others, that they too can find their way.

We conclude the way we began, which is to remind you that you are never alone. You have a vast support network; call upon it to help guide you through this new territory so that you can know that you are a special one of the Ones, and help other ones know that, they too, are One of the special ones.

We abide in you, as One,

Ten Steps to End Stress

Calm command can replace agitation as surely as sunshine can replace a storm.

Examining the doubts we have about our present way is a highly intelligent act.

Most people merely rearrange their problems, but with self-insight you can end them.

Feel the need for something different, then let it grow by having affection for it.

You are not required to listen to anyone who demands, “What are you doing about my problems?”

Starting now, never again permit hard or disapproving facial expressions to intimidate you.

Reflect often on the interesting idea of getting out of your own way.

A quiet mind knows the answer, which means we must cease to fight anxiously for the answer.

One day you will look calmly at a fear and say to it, “You have shaken me for the last time.”

The one supreme power that will guarantee personal happiness is personal right thinking.

I am honest. I prefer truth to lies. I prefer plain, direct but kind speech to all.

I am real. I am here. I am not permanent, I am interdependent to my surroundings. I am composed of composites composed of composites.

I am only an infinity small drop in an infinity large ocean of energy. I let go of the small self, the ego, the idea of a distinct separate being, to embrace the cosmic self, the largest self, the all inclusive Whole.

How to Let God Heal You by Myrtle Fillmore

I JUST WANT to come in and have a visit with you. Let us forget all that has pressed itself in upon us, to make us sometimes feel that God the Good is not all in all.

Here, in the silence, we shall know the Presence of God, and see clearly just how we are to go about living the life that He is giving us so we may bring forth the order, beauty, and freedom that He has planned and that are now awaiting our understanding use. But let us not go too far into the metaphysics of this wonderful thing. Instead, we are here together, just to rest quietly and happily in reality. As we do this, a real transformation will be worked in us and for us. We shall reap the good fruits of our study, affirmation, and meditation.

THE YOUNG MAN WHO WAS AFRAID

By this time the young man very much desired to talk with Jesus, and he knelt at his feet imploring Jesus to help him, to show him the way of escape from his world of personal sorrow and defeat. Said Jesus:

>“My friend, arise! Stand up like a man! You may be surrounded with small enemies and be retarded by many obstacles, but the big things and the real things of this world and the universe are on your side. The sun rises every morning to salute you just as it does the most powerful and prosperous man on earth. Look—you have a strong body and powerful muscles—your physical equipment is better than the average. Of course, it is just about useless while you sit out here on the mountainside and grieve over your misfortunes, real and fancied. But you could do great things with your body if you would hasten off to where great things are waiting to be done. You are trying to run away from your unhappy self, but it cannot be done. You and your problems of living are real; you cannot escape them as long as you live. But look again, your mind is clear and capable. Your strong body has an intelligent mind to direct it. Set your mind at work to solve its problems; teach your intellect to work for you; refuse longer to be dominated by fear like an unthinking animal. Your mind should be your courageous ally in the solution of your life problems rather than your being, as you have been, its abject fear-slave and the bond servant of depression and defeat. But most valuable of all, your potential of real achievement is the spirit which lives within you, and which will stimulate and inspire your mind to control itself and activate the body if you will release it from the fetters of fear and thus enable your spiritual nature to begin your deliverance from the evils of inaction by the power-presence of living faith. And then, forthwith, will this faith vanquish fear of men by the compelling presence of that new and all-dominating love of your fellows which will so soon fill your soul to overflowing because of the consciousness which has been born in your heart that you are a child of God.

To practice properly Aikido, you must:

Calm the spirit and return to the source.

Cleanse the body and spirit by removing all malice, selfishness, and desire.

Loyalty and devotion lead to bravery. Bravery leads to the spirit of self-sacrifice. The spirit of self-sacrifice creates trust in the power of love.

Budo is not a means of felling the opponent by force or by lethal weapons. Neither is it intended to lead the world to destruction by arms and other illegitimate means. True Budo calls for bringing the inner energy of the universe in order, protecting the peace of the world , as well as preserving, everything in nature in its right form.

If your opponent tries to pull you, let him pull. Don't pull against him; pull in unison with him.

Aikido does not rely on weapons or brute force to succeed; instead we put ourselves in tune with the universe, maintain peace in our own realms, nurture life, and prevent death and destruction. The true meaning of the term "samurai" is one who serves and adheres to the power of love.

Foster and polish the warrior spirit while serving in the world; illuminate the path according to your inner light.

Even though our path is completely different from the warrior arts of the past, it is not necessary to abandon totally the old ways. Absorb venerable traditions into this Art by clothing them with fresh garments, and building on the classic styles to create better forms.

Day after day train your heart out, refining your technique: Use the One to strike the Many! That is the discipline of the Warrior.

The Way of a Warrior cannot be encompassed by words or in letters: grasp the essence and move on toward realization!

The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit.

Iron is full of impurities that weaken it; through the forging fire, it becomes steel and is transformed into a razor-sharp sword. Human beings develop in the same fashion.

Instructors can impart only a fraction of the teaching. It is through your own devoted practice that the mysteries of Aikido are brought to life.

The Way of a Warrior is based on humanity, love, and sincerity; the heart of martial valor is true bravery, wisdom, love, and friendship. Emphasis on the physical aspects of warriorship is futile, for the power of the body is always limited.

A true warrior is always armed with three things: the radiant sword of pacification; the mirror of bravery, wisdom, and friendship; and the precious jewel of enlightenment.

Aikido is the principle of non-resistance. Because it is non-resistant, it is victorious from the beginning. Those with evil intentions or contentious thoughts are instantly vanquished. Aikido is invincible because it contends with nothing.

There are no contests in Aikido. A true warrior is invincible because he or she contests with nothing. Defeat means to defeat the mind of contention that we harbor within.

To injure an opponent is to injure yourself. To control aggression without inflicting injury is Aikido.

The totally awakened warrior can freely utilize all elements contained in heaven and earth. The true warrior learns how to correctly perceive the activity of the universe and how to transform martial techniques into vehicles of purity, goodness, and beauty. A warrior's mind and body must be permeated with enlightened wisdom and deep calm.

It is necessary to develop a strategy that utilizes all the physical conditions and elements that are directly at hand. The best strategy relies upon an unlimited set of responses.

General Bayani Faith Thread

What is the Bayani Faith?

Often erroneously referred to as "Babism" (I've made this mistake myself), the Bayani Faith is a Persian religion originating in the 19th century. Its founder was Ali Muhamamd Shirazi who assumed the title of "Bab," which is an Arabic word meaning "gate" or "door." This was the first name His Holiness the Point assumed, that of the Gate of God (Bab-i-llah); then, Qa'im (He Who Arises). These titles were misinterpreted and were the source of much confusion among the People of the Qur'an (i.e. Muslims) who had been examining the Bab and the words which he uttered and who had conflated the Qa'im with the Hidden Twelfth Imam. In actuality, His Highness the Imam had made his return in the body of one of the Bab's disciples, called Letters of the Living, as did all other central Shi'ite figures: Muhammad, Fatima, the Twelve Imams, and the Four Deputies.

The Bab quite clearly explains his names in the Book of the Five Grades:

>"You named me after that which has a numerical value of five. . ."

The Arabic word "Bab," the sum of the numerical values of all the letters, equals five.

>"since you had set four Gates for me. . ."

i.e. the four deputies

>"Then, after these years, you made me manifest over all things by the name Qaim and elevated the mention of your self in the year five with glory. . ."

The Bab was the Qa'im in the sense that he was "He Who Prevails" over all men, whose arising is the resurrection; in the sense that he was the author of a new resurrection.

>"In the sixth year, you mentioned the name of your self, your glorious and mighty name."

The sixth year, in which the Bab is martyred; in which is mentioned through the Bab, who is the Voice of God, the name of God.

And this is the reason why "Babism" is not a proper name for reason and why "Babi" is not a proper title for its adherents. The faith was only "Babism" during its first period when the Primal Point identified himself as Bab-i-llah, and "Babis" were only those who believed during this period. Now, the people of the Bayan go by the theologically correct title and the one that is preferred by them, "Bayanis," after the title of the Bayani scripture.

The disciples of His Holiness the Primal Point did not view him as the Imam himself. The Primal Point did not consider himself an Imam but a prophet, being the revelation of God, called "He Who Has Appeared," returning in the next manifestation, called by the Primal Point "He Whom God Shall Make Manifest." God reveals Himself in the person of a human manifestation, who different in body, has manifested in him the Primal Will which does not change.

The Primal Point is taught to have two stations: the Station of Divinity in the Realm of Names and Attributes, where the Point is the Voice of God and says, "Verily, I am God; there is none other but Me; all beside Me is My Creation" and the Station of Creation where the His Holiness the Point worships God as a creature.

Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1 Corinthians 2:11-13 King James Version (KJV)

1. God exists. He exists not as a theory and not as a concept of the universe as a whole, but as an actual thinking real individual.

2. God communicates directly with every human being. You've been doing so your whole life, but you don't know it because you hear him as the voice you hear in your head.

3. When you first learn to listen, it is very easy to convince yourself (and for others to convince you) that you are insane.

4. But God will offer undeniable proof to you if you ask. But, and here's where it gets kind of funny… the proof is not transferable. The proof will absolutely convince you of the truth, but will not be anything that can convince others.

5. The bible, aside from all of the stories and moral lessons, is primarily a guide to prepare you for what I say in 1-4. It mentions it directly a few times, but it gets lost in everything else. But when read in its totality, it is a guidebook for the self-discovery of God within.

6. Once you have a personal relationship with God, that supersedes all other teachings, the bible, your pastors, or history.

7. The religion that most closely recognizes these facts is the Quakers. Their entire philosophy is based on these things.

8. Protip…. there is no such thing as a random thought in your head. If you didn't think it, someone else did.

THE FURTHER EVOLUTION OF RELIGION

92:7.2 New religions cannot be invented; they are either evolved, or else they are suddenly revealed. All new evolutionary religions are merely advancing expressions of the old beliefs, new adaptations and adjustments. The old does not cease to exist; it is merged with the new, even as Sikhism budded and blossomed out of the soil and forms of Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and other contemporary cults. Primitive religion was very democratic; the savage was quick to borrow or lend. Only with revealed religion did autocratic and intolerant theologic egotism appear.

92:7.3 The many religions of Urantia are all good to the extent that they bring man to God and bring the realization of the Father to man. It is a fallacy for any group of religionists to conceive of their creed as The Truth; such attitudes bespeak more of theological arrogance than of certainty of faith. There is not a Urantia religion that could not profitably study and assimilate the best of the truths contained in every other faith, for all contain truth. Religionists would do better to borrow the best in their neighbors’ living spiritual faith rather than to denounce the worst in their lingering superstitions and outworn rituals.

92:7.4 All these religions have arisen as a result of man’s variable intellectual response to his identical spiritual leading. They can never hope to attain a uniformity of creeds, dogmas, and rituals—these are intellectual; but they can, and some day will, realize a unity in true worship of the Father of all, for this is spiritual, and it is forever true, in the spirit all men are equal.

92:7.5 Primitive religion was largely a material-value consciousness, but civilization elevates religious values, for true religion is the devotion of the self to the service of meaningful and supreme values. As religion evolves, ethics becomes the philosophy of morals, and morality becomes the discipline of self by the standards of highest meanings and supreme values—divine and spiritual ideals. And thus religion becomes a spontaneous and exquisite devotion, the living experience of the loyalty of love.

Providence

118:10.17 The kingdom of God is in the hearts of men, and when this kingdom becomes actual in the heart of every individual on a world, then God’s rule has become actual on that planet; and this is the attained sovereignty of the Supreme Being.

118:10.18 To realize providence in time, man must accomplish the task of achieving perfection. But man can even now foretaste this providence in its eternity meanings as he ponders the universe fact that all things, be they good or evil, work together for the advancement of God-knowing mortals in their quest for the Father of all.

118:10.19 Providence becomes increasingly discernible as men reach upward from the material to the spiritual. The attainment of completed spiritual insight enables the ascending personality to detect harmony in what was theretofore chaos. Even morontia mota represents a real advance in this direction.

118:10.20 Providence is in part the overcontrol of the incomplete Supreme manifested in the incomplete universes, and it must therefore ever be:

1. Partial—due to the incompleteness of the actualization of the Supreme Being, and

2. Unpredictable—due to the fluctuations in creature attitude, which ever varies from level to level, thus causing apparently variable reciprocal response in the Supreme.

118:10.23 When men pray for providential intervention in the circumstances of life, many times the answer to their prayer is their own changed attitudes toward life. But providence is not whimsical, neither is it fantastic nor magical. It is the slow and sure emergence of the mighty sovereign of the finite universes, whose majestic presence the evolving creatures occasionally detect in their universe progressions. Providence is the sure and certain march of the galaxies of space and the personalities of time toward the goals of eternity, first in the Supreme, then in the Ultimate, and perhaps in the Absolute. And in infinity we believe there is the same providence, and this is the will, the actions, the purpose of the Paradise Trinity thus motivating the cosmic panorama of universes upon universes.

I believe in the Motherhood of God.

I believe in the Blessed Trinity of Father, Mother and Child.

I believe that God is here, and that we are as near Him now as ever we shall be.

I do not believe He started this world a-going and went away and left it to run by itself.

I believe in the sacredness of the human body, this transient dwelling place of a living soul, And so I deem it the duty of every man and every woman to keep his or her body beautiful through right thinking and right living.

I believe that the love of man for woman, and the love of woman for man is holy; And that this love in all its promptings is as much an emanation of the Divine Spirit as man's love for God, or the most daring hazards of the human mind.

I believe in salvation through economic, social, and spiritual freedom.

I believe John Ruskin, William Morris, Henry Thoreau, Walt Whitman, and Leo Tolstoy to be Prophets of God, who should rank in mental reach and spiritual insight with Elijah, Hosea, Ezekiel, and Isaiah.

I believe that men are inspired to-day as much as ever men were.

I believe we are now living in Eternity as much as ever we shall.

I believe that the best way to prepare for a Future Life is to be kind, live one day at a time, and do the work you can do best, doing it as well as you can.

I believe we should remember the Week-day, to keep it holy.

I believe there is no devil but fear.

I believe that no one can harm you but yourself.

I believe in my own divinity — and yours.

I believe that we are all sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be.

I believe the only way we can reach the Kingdom of Heaven is to have the Kingdom of Heaven in our hearts.

I believe in every man minding his own business.

I believe in sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts.

I believe in the paradox of success through failure.

I believe in the purifying process of sorrow, and I believe that death is a manifestation of life.

I believe the Universe is planned for good.

I believe it is possible that I shall make other creeds, and change this one, or add to it, from time to time, as new light may come to me.

MASTERS OF PHILOSOPHY

27:6.1 Next to the supreme satisfaction of worship is the exhilaration of philosophy. Never do you climb so high or advance so far that there do not remain a thousand mysteries which demand the employment of philosophy in an attempted solution.

27:6.2 The master philosophers of Paradise delight to lead the minds of its inhabitants, both native and ascendant, in the exhilarating pursuit of attempting to solve universe problems. These superaphic masters of philosophy are the “wise men of heaven,” the beings of wisdom who make use of the truth of knowledge and the facts of experience in their efforts to master the unknown. With them knowledge attains to truth and experience ascends to wisdom. On Paradise the ascendant personalities of space experience the heights of being: They have knowledge; they know the truth; they may philosophize—think the truth; they may even seek to encompass the concepts of the Ultimate and attempt to grasp the techniques of the Absolutes.

My journey

Hello everyone

I have something I'd like to share with you all, not just for myself, but also for you guys. Hopefully someone will get something out of this.

I'll begin this by telling something about myself. I am a 22 year old male, and I have since the age of 17 been a buddhist of the rinzai zen sect. Pretty much my whole life I have been looking for some kind of meaning, something I can do.. Normal jobs don't appeal much to me, just working, getting a loan to buy a house and basically ending up as a slave just to live out a "normal" life seems all so pointless to me.

It was around the age of 19 I started thinking to myself that I could get something meaninful out of my life by going down the road of buddhism. But how could I do this seriously? If I were to tell someone I want to become a monk, then I would most certainly get laughed at just like every other teenager thinking the same.

Then, about a year ago I came up with something I could do, something to prove how serious I am taking this. It isn't just something I'm doing to prove something for everyone else, but it is also something that will help me grow as a person, and most importanly as a buddhist. I am talking about an old school pilgrimage.

For every passing week since I started to think about it, my will to do it has only grown stronger with each passing day, and not long ago I made up my mind to stop thinking about it, and just do it. I still have a lot of planning left do to, so the departure is still a good 6 months away I'd say. At the very least.

Some basic details about the trip:
I want to "cheat" a bit and start around germany (I'm Scandinavian) and have it end in Japan.

I am a bit unsure on where the route will end up going, while I'd love to go through Turkey and the middle east, I must say I am a bit sceptical with everything going on down there. So I'm thinking about opting for a route that might be a bit more safe.

I will be working and saving up money for the trip, just incase something goes horribly wrong or I chicken out and have to go back home with my tail between my legs. But I'm going to try to save as much as possible, and live mostly on donations if possible.

I have been taking this very seriously, so I have been training a lot the last year, hiking alone in the mountains and living as simply and isolated as possible. Among other things.

While I am giving myself the pleasure of being a bit optimistic about this, I also know everything could go horribly wrong. Me ending up dead in a ditch somewhere being one of the better outcomes I can think of. But whatever happens happens, hopefully my karma will be good and see me through this. (Kinda ironic, as then it wouldn't matter if I went through ISIS controlled areas or not)

I don't know if there is much else to say, I feel like everything I just wrote is a big mess. I have wanted to tell someone about this for a long time now, and there is so much I want to say, but I'm worried I'll just say too much and nothing will make any sense.

But if anyone has come this far I'd like to thank you for sticking with it, and I'm open for questions/feedback/criticism, if anyone wants to talk/chat with me I'm also open for that. Just add a reply saying so and we'll come up with something.

Which religion has most beautiful worship?

R: 7 / I: 3 / P: 6 [R] [G] [-]

195:1.2 Christianity came into existence and triumphed over all contending religions primarily because of two things:

1. The Greek mind was willing to borrow new and good ideas even from the Jews.

2. Paul and his successors were willing but shrewd and sagacious compromisers; they were keen theologic traders.

195:1.5 At the time Paul stood up in Athens preaching “Christ and Him Crucified,” the Greeks were spiritually hungry; they were inquiring, interested, and actually looking for spiritual truth. Never forget that at first the Romans fought Christianity, while the Greeks embraced it, and that it was the Greeks who literally forced the Romans subsequently to accept this new religion, as then modified, as a part of Greek culture.

195:1.6 The Greek revered beauty, the Jew holiness, but both peoples loved truth. For centuries the Greek had seriously thought and earnestly debated about all human problems—social, economic, political, and philosophic—except religion. Few Greeks had paid much attention to religion; they did not take even their own religion very seriously. For centuries the Jews had neglected these other fields of thought while they devoted their minds to religion. They took their religion very seriously, too seriously. As illuminated by the content of Jesus’ message, the united product of the centuries of the thought of these two peoples now became the driving power of a new order of human society and, to a certain extent, of a new order of human religious belief and practice.

195:1.7 The influence of Greek culture had already penetrated the lands of the western Mediterranean when Alexander spread Hellenistic civilizaton over the near-Eastern world. The Greeks did very well with their religion and their politics as long as they lived in small city-states, but when the Macedonian king dared to expand Greece into an empire, stretching from the Adriatic to the Indus, trouble began. The art and philosophy of Greece were fully equal to the task of imperial expansion, but not so with Greek political administration or religion. After the city-states of Greece had expanded into empire, their rather parochial gods seemed a little queer. The Greeks were really searching for one God, a greater and better God, when the Christianized version of the older Jewish religion came to them.

195:1.8 The Hellenistic Empire, as such, could not endure. Its cultural sway continued on, but it endured only after securing from the West the Roman political genius for empire administration and after obtaining from the East a religion whose one God possessed empire dignity.

195:1.9 In the first century after Christ, Hellenistic culture had already attained its highest levels; its retrogression had begun; learning was advancing but genius was declining. It was at this very time that the ideas and ideals of Jesus, which were partially embodied in Christianity, became a part of the salvage of Greek culture and learning.

195:1.10 Alexander had charged on the East with the cultural gift of the civilization of Greece; Paul assaulted the West with the Christian version of the gospel of Jesus. And wherever the Greek culture prevailed throughout the West, there Hellenized Christianity took root.

What about a mixture of both?

This embraces both spiritual traditions of the European people, paganism and Christianity, viewing the Biblical stories through a Germanic mindset while discarding the Jewishness of it all.

It's historically attested to as many Germanic tribes gradually accepted Christianity, melding it with their Heathen practices, like the Franks, the Visigoths or the Anglo Saxons.

Could certain bad cult leaders actually have been chosen by God, but became corrupted?

This isn’t a post attacking religion. This isn’t meant to be the typical “religions and cults are the same” criticism. I’m wondering about people who started small religious groups, like St. Francis. In his earliest days, would his group have been considered a cult? If not him, what about others whom we respect today, like St. Giles? I am asking because I’m curious if a cult leader in the modern era ever be someone chosen by God to lead people, but becomes corrupted? Anyone, like Jim Jones, for example. How do you know if God is leading you or if the devil is?

MARKS OF RELIGIOUS LIVING

100:6.1 Evolutionary religions and revelatory religions may differ markedly in method, but in motive there is great similarity. Religion is not a specific function of life; rather is it a mode of living. True religion is a wholehearted devotion to some reality which the religionist deems to be of supreme value to himself and for all mankind. And the outstanding characteristics of all religions are: unquestioning loyalty and wholehearted devotion to supreme values. This religious devotion to supreme values is shown in the relation of the supposedly irreligious mother to her child and in the fervent loyalty of nonreligionists to an espoused cause.

100:6.2 The accepted supreme value of the religionist may be base or even false, but it is nevertheless religious. A religion is genuine to just the extent that the value which is held to be supreme is truly a cosmic reality of genuine spiritual worth.

100:6.3 The marks of human response to the religious impulse embrace the qualities of nobility and grandeur. The sincere religionist is conscious of universe citizenship and is aware of making contact with sources of superhuman power. He is thrilled and energized with the assurance of belonging to a superior and ennobled fellowship of the sons of God. The consciousness of self-worth has become augmented by the stimulus of the quest for the highest universe objectives—supreme goals.

What is REALITY?

1. What you think of as REALITY is a collection of ideas and beliefs about

REALITY. Many of the ideas you have about REALITY come from the

culture in which you were raised and have accumulated haphazardly over

time.

2. This, in itself, is not a problem. The problem is in forgetting point number

1. When you forget point 1, you mistake your ideas about reality for being

REALITY itself. Of this, it has been said ‘the menu is not the meal’. Please

refrain from eating the menu.

3. People who ‘eat the menu’ frequently become confused and annoyed when

other people insist on seeing REALITY in a different way. All that truly dif-

fers are their ideas and beliefs about REALITY.

4. Beliefs are just thoughts you keep having.

5. No living being is capable of perceiving all of REALITY, as all senses of

perception are limited. Humans can only see, hear, smell, taste and feel within

certain parameters. Information entering our senses undergoes compression,

filtration, and distortion, before interpretation. Interpretation is what happens

when information meets your ‘beliefs’.

6. For no good reason, we call this composite of Belief & Biological Limits THE

BLACK IRON PRISON and is a metaphor about existence. It means that

there is very little you can do about biology; however, you can choose what

becomes part of your beliefs. (Always keeping point 1 in mind).

00018

7. Each person exists within their own, unique BIP ‘cell’. The cell is composed of

the following:

a) Biological limits – these are largely unchangeable. b) Belief systems –

these are highly changeable. Because of (a) the BIP cell cannot be escaped.

Because of (b) your life experience, your ‘cell’, can be altered drastically.

This is what we try to call ‘reconstruction’.

8. A life long commitment to continual reconstruction is known, ironically, as

‘The Jail Break’. Reconstruction is HARD WORK.

9. The collection of beliefs, thoughts, notions etc that form your cell are all

equally VALID, though none are TRUE in the sense that they “are” REAL-

ITY. However, some beliefs and ideas are more useful than others in specific

situations. It is up to the individual to decide which beliefs and ideas they

should employ in a given situation.

10. Some people believe that the term BLACK IRON PRISON is dark, bleak,

depressing and even frightening. If you prefer, use the term GOLDEN

SPHERE of POSSIBILITY (GSP) instead. It means exactly the same thing

as BIP and all points still apply.

11. BIP (or GSP) can be philosophical antidote to dogmatism.

Persecution Will Cleanse The Church

Persecution Will Cleanse The Church

“I told you that persecution is coming. What have you done with that information? Persecution will spread all across the land, and many will be martyred, including you if you want it. Persecution is My main enemy against the Church, many will fall without Me. Did I not say that many will not make it into My Kingdom? Many who name the name of Christ are far from Me, living lives full of sin, many will not make it to the Pearly Gates, they are rejected. Persecution will cleanse the Church, removing the dross: the people who should not be there, having a form of godliness, but no power of Christ in their lives. Those I will judge. The rest will be purified by the fires of affliction caused by persecution in their lives, fear not! Many I have accounted worthy to enter in to My Kingdom, be one of them! Your God has spoken.”

“My people, I see who you are. I know all My people, and I wish they were doing My will. Brian, I see all, I know all, I Am the Eternal God. Follow Me. I have called all to serve Me; few do. How will you make it to Heaven if you don’t obey Me? Know Me. I have jobs for you to do in eternity. Few will make it to My Heaven. The Living God has spoken. Obey. Follow My word. Obey My prophets. I have spoken, Amen.”

And they are enabled to bring these material and morontial viewpoints into true focus largely through the untiring ministry of their seraphic counselors, who so patiently teach the mansion world students and the morontia progressors.

THE BOOK OF REVELATION

Rev. 22:6-21.

"And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true; and the Lord God of the Holy Prophets sent His Angel to shew unto His Servants the Things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this BOOK.

"And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the Angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy Fellowservant, and of the Brethren the Prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this Book: worship GOD.

"And he saith unto me. Seal not the sayings of THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK: for the TIME IS AT HAND. p. 210 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am ALPHA and OMEGA, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.

"Blessed are they that do His Commandments, that they may have right to the 'TREE OF LIFE,' and may enter in through the gates into the City. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers and idolators, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

"I Jesus have sent mine Angel to testify unto you these things in the Churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR.

"And the SPIRIT (Holy Spirit) and the BRIDE (the Church, still on the earth) say COME. And let him that is athirst COME. And WHOSOEVER WILL, let him take of the 'Water of Life' FREELY.

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK. If any man shall ADD UNTO THESE THINGS, GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK: and if any man shall TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK.

"He which testifieth these things, saith, Surely I COME QUICKLY. AMEN. EVEN SO, COME LORD JESUS.

This is a course in miracles. It is a required course.

Only the time you take it is voluntary.

Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum.

It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time.

The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love,

for that is beyond what can be taught.

It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s

presence, which is your natural inheritance.

The opposite of love is fear,

but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.

This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:

Nothing real can be threatened.

Nothing unreal exists.

Urantia concept of the Thought Adjuster

(1:2.8) Those who know God have experienced the fact of his presence; such God-knowing mortals hold in their personal experience the only positive proof of the existence of the living God which one human being can offer to another. The existence of God is utterly beyond all possibility of demonstration except for the contact between the God-consciousness of the human mind and the God-presence of the Thought Adjuster that indwells the mortal intellect and is bestowed upon man as the free gift of the Universal Father.

(5:2.3) The divine presence cannot, however, be discovered anywhere in nature or even in the lives of God-knowing mortals so fully and so certainly as in your attempted communion with the indwelling Mystery Monitor, the Paradise Thought Adjuster. What a mistake to dream of God far off in the skies when the spirit of the Universal Father lives within your own mind!

(102:1.6) The indwelling Thought Adjuster unfailingly arouses in man's soul a true and searching hunger for perfection together with a far-reaching curiosity which can be adequately satisfied only by communion with God, the divine source of that Adjuster. The hungry soul of man refuses to be satisfied with anything less than the personal realization of the living God. Whatever more God may be than a high and perfect moral personality, he cannot, in our hungry and finite concept, be anything less.

Always remember that you belong to no one, and no one belongs to you. Reflect that some day you will suddenly have to leave everything in this world–so make the acquaintanceship of God now. Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception. Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles. Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. Cease being a prisoner of the body; using the secret key of Kriya, learn to escape into Spirit.

Solve all your problems through meditation. Exchange unprofitable religious speculations for actual God-contact. Clear your mind of dogmatic theological debris; let in the fresh, healing waters of direct perception. Attune yourself to the active inner Guidance; the Divine Voice has the answer to every dilemma of life. Though man’s ingenuity for getting himself into trouble appears to be endless, the Infinite Succor is no less resourceful.

Urantia

170:2.20 Jesus taught that, by faith, the believer enters the kingdom now. In the various discourses he taught that two things are essential to faith-entrance into the kingdom:

1. Faith, sincerity. To come as a little child, to receive the bestowal of sonship as a gift; to submit to the doing of the Father’s will without questioning and in the full confidence and genuine trustfulness of the Father’s wisdom; to come into the kingdom free from prejudice and preconception; to be open-minded and teachable like an unspoiled child.

2. Truth hunger. The thirst for righteousness, a change of mind, the acquirement of the motive to be like God and to find God.

BUDDHIST PSALMS

LAUDING THE INFINITE ONE

1. Since He who is Infinite attained unto the Wisdom Supreme, the long, long ages of ten Kalpas have rolled away.

The Light of His Dharma-Kaya is in this world eyes to the blind.

2. Seek refuge in the True Illumination! For the light of His Wisdom is infinite.

In all the worlds there is nothing upon which His light shines not.

3. Take refuge in the Light universal.

As the Light of His deliverance is boundless, he who is within it is freed from the lie of affirmation or denial.

4. Seek refuge in That which is beyond understanding,

For His glory is all-embracing as the air. It shineth and pierceth all things, and there is nothing hid from the light thereof.

5. Take refuge in the ultimate Strength, for His pure radiance is above all things. He who perceiveth this Light is set free from the fetters of Karma.

6. Seek refuge in the World-Honoured.

Since His glorious radiance is above all He is called the Buddha of Divine Light. And by Him is the darkness of the three worlds Enlightened.

7. Excellent is the Light of His Wisdom. Therefore is he called the Buddha of Clear Shining.

He who is within the Light, being washed from the soil of Karma, shall attain unto the final deliverance.

8. Take refuge in the Mighty Consoler. Wheresoever His mercy shineth throughout all the worlds, men rejoice in its gladdening light.

9. The darkness of ignorance perisheth before His light. Therefore is He hailed as the Buddha of Radiant Wisdom. All the Buddhas and the threefold choir of sages praise Him.

10. His glory shineth for ever and ever. Therefore is He called the Buddha of Everlasting Light.

Most excellent is the virtue of this light, for he who perceiveth it is born into Paradise without dissolution of being.

11. The glory of the Infinite is boundless, therefore is He known as the Buddha of Light Past Comprehension.

All the Buddhas glorify the majesty of His holiness that leadeth all the earth into His Kingdom.

12. His clear shining transcendeth all revelation, nor can human speech utter it. Therefore is He named the Buddha of Light Unspeakable.

All the Buddhas glorify the glory of the Infinite One who is Buddha through His promise of Light immeasurable.

160:4.1 While you have an eye single to the attainment of eternal realities, you must also make provision for the necessities of temporal living. While the spirit is our goal, the flesh is a fact. Occasionally the necessities of living may fall into our hands by accident, but in general, we must intelligently work for them. The two major problems of life are: making a temporal living and the achievement of eternal survival. And even the problem of making a living requires religion for its ideal solution. These are both highly personal problems. True religion, in fact, does not function apart from the individual.

160:4.2 The essentials of the temporal life, as I see them, are:

1. Good physical health.

2. Clear and clean thinking.

3. Ability and skill.

4. Wealth—the goods of life.

5. Ability to withstand defeat.

6. Culture— education and wisdom.

160:4.9 Even the physical problems of bodily health and efficiency are best solved when they are viewed from the religious standpoint of our Master’s teaching: That the body and mind of man are the dwelling place of the gift of the Gods, the spirit of God becoming the spirit of man. The mind of man thus becomes the mediator between material things and spiritual realities.

made some really interesting but controversial discoveries

I really want to share what I found with you /rel/. just keep in mind that I've been a poster for very long, but I do sometimes go months without posting anything because I'm not inspired or the board is very slow. I'm making this thread in good will because I believe I can help people who feel stuck or lost in all the confusion of religion or aren't really sure where they stand because of a bunch of difficult to accept contradictions. I'm making this thread to expose a bunch of lies and corruption in many major religons, but to also provide some really good answers to help people feel closer to God.

please keep in mind that this thread is EXTREMELY controversial and probably isn't for anyone who is a hardcore believer in any given religion because your mind will reject it and shut down instead of sitting down and really trying to go over the facts and this will probably just make you very angry or something. if you're a hardcore believer in anything, I'm going to say this now, I'm not making this thread to attack you or your beliefs, and I'm not going to try to convince you that you're right or wrong or that I'm right or wrong. I'm fully aware that you just simply can't change some people's minds and I'm not going to even try to do that, so don't come into this thread all like "fuck you man you made this thread specifically for me somehow even though I'm a random anonymous poster and I deliberately entered into a thread about a topic I don't like and now I'm upset how could this happen to me you're a liar you're trying to convince me bla bla bla"

I'm not against debate or philosophical discussion at all, but if you're a hardcore christian for example, just don't even look at this thread, and don't even get angry. it's just going to give you a bunch of assblasted butthurt and derail the thread. (which you might actually want to do after reading this) so there you have it, your special snowflake trigger warning.

I'm going to be talking about how most religions are actually secret satanic cults, and why you should transcend the limitations of religion and love God directly.

also I'm sorry if this exact thread was posted before and deleted because 8chan was having severe 502 errors and I never saw my thread successfully posted. if 8chan did that thing where it doesn't post your thread and suddenly spams the thread hours later without the knowledge of the OP then I'm sorry as this was completely unintentional and due to technical difficulties I have no control over. I hope 8chan is working now.

Conversion: Sufism or Hinduism?

I've been researching religion quite a bit, and determined that Sufism or Hinduism are my best bet. They are both very traditional, spiritual, and recognize other faiths. It's hard to choose between the two. Technically speaking I'm not missing out on any spiritual opportunities because they're both based on the same primordial tradition. But other factors make the decision difficult.

Due to being raised Christian, Islam might be a lot easier to convert to, as they are both semitic religions. It would also make me a lot more welcomed should I ever expatriate to the mid-east. On the other hand Islam attracts a lot of fundamentalist types in the same way modern Christianity tends to. They might be very inhospitable to esoteric beliefs. Another issue is the concept of Hadith which makes Islam extremely difficult to decipher, as you have to hit the ground running. As an American Republican it might also alienate me, but politics shouldn't influence personal religion beliefs.

Hinduism would be good because it is very inclusive. The scriptures are also easier to understand: the Vedas, Upanishads, and Gita are going to be 99.9% of all discussion. It also has more sentimental value because it is an Aryan religion. The downsides would have to be navigating all the various denominations; Hinduism has far more branches than Islam. Technically Hinduism can be considered monotheistic, but it might alienate me from Muslims due to being considered polytheistic by most. I don't really care for murthi idolatry, but this is not a condemnation of it either.

I'm kind of leaning towards Hinduism just because it seems to be a "greater" religion. But Islam might fit my western personality more. What do you guys think? Any advice?

Dustin DiPerna on Integral Theory and the Urantia Revelation

Dustin DiPerna, a very senior student of Ken Wilber, has become a leading advocate for the synthesis of integral theory and the world's great wisdom traditions. Wilber has publicly declared that Dustin's work "fundamentally alters the way in which religion or spirituality can (and should) be taught and practiced." Dustin's work has been a big help in my own advocacy for applying integral theory to the cosmic spirituality of the UB. For the past 9 years, Dustin has been practicing and studying in the Buddhist spiritual lineages of Mahamudra and Dzogchen under the direction of Daniel P. Brown, who was also one of my own teachers. Listen to this interview if you want to equip yourself with an intellectually rigorous orientation to spiritual transformation in terms of the latest findings in integral theory and consciousness studies—in dialogue with the wisdom of The Urantia Book.

THE RELIGION OF THE IDEAL

All religions based on fear, emotion, tradition, and philosophy I term the intellectual religions, while those based on true spirit experience I would term the true religions.

160:5.5 The social characteristics of a true religion consist in the fact that it invariably seeks to convert the individual and to transform the world. Religion implies the existence of undiscovered ideals which far transcend the known standards of ethics and morality embodied in even the highest social usages of the most mature institutions of civilization. Religion reaches out for undiscovered ideals, unexplored realities, superhuman values, divine wisdom, and true spirit attainment. True religion does all of this; all other beliefs are not worthy of the name. You cannot have a genuine spiritual religion without the supreme and supernal ideal of an eternal God. A religion without this God is an invention of man, a human institution of lifeless intellectual beliefs and meaningless emotional ceremonies. A religion might claim as the object of its devotion a great ideal. But such ideals of unreality are not attainable; such a concept is illusionary. The only ideals susceptible of human attainment are the divine realities of the infinite values resident in the spiritual fact of the eternal God.

100:2.4.Spirituality becomes at once the indicator of one's nearness to God and the measure of one's usefulness to fellow beings. Spirituality enhances the ability to discover beauty in things, recognize truth in meanings, and discover goodness in values. Spiritual development is determined by capacity therefor and is directly proportional to the elimination of the selfish qualities of love.

100:2.5.Actual spiritual status is the measure of Deity attainment, Adjuster attunement. The achievement of finality of spirituality is equivalent to the attainment of the maximum of reality, the maximum of Godlikeness. Eternal life is the endless quest for infinite values.

100:2.6.The goal of human self-realization should be spiritual, not material. The only realities worth striving for are divine, spiritual, and eternal. Mortal man is entitled to the enjoyment of physical pleasures and to the satisfaction of human affections; he is benefited by loyalty to human associations and temporal institutions; but these are not the eternal foundations upon which to build the immortal personality which must transcend space, vanquish time, and achieve the eternal destiny of divine perfection and finaliter service.

100:2.7.Jesus portrayed the profound surety of the God-knowing mortal when he said: "To a God-knowing kingdom believer, what does it matter if all things earthly crash?" Temporal securities are vulnerable, but spiritual sureties are impregnable. When the flood tides of human adversity, selfishness, cruelty, hate, malice, and jealousy beat about the mortal soul, you may rest in the assurance that there is one inner bastion, the citadel of the spirit, which is absolutely unassailable; at least this is true of every human being who has dedicated the keeping of his soul to the indwelling spirit of the eternal God.

100:2.8.After such spiritual attainment, whether secured by gradual growth or specific crisis, there occurs a new orientation of personality as well as the development of a new standard of values. Such spirit-born individuals are so remotivated in life that they can calmly stand by while their fondest ambitions perish and their keenest hopes crash; they positively know that such catastrophes are but the redirecting cataclysms which wreck one's temporal creations preliminary to the rearing of the more noble and enduring realities of a new and more sublime level of universe attainment.

SACRED AND PROFANE HISTORY

97:8.1 The custom of looking upon the record of the experiences of the Hebrews as sacred history and upon the transactions of the rest of the world as profane history is responsible for much of the confusion existing in the human mind as to the interpretation of history. And this difficulty arises because there is no secular history of the Jews. After the priests of the Babylonians exile had prepared their new record of God's supposedly miraculous dealings with the Hebrews, the sacred history of Israel as portrayed in the Old Testament, they carefully and completely destroyed the existing records of Hebrew affairs—such books as "The Doings of the Kings of Israel" and "The Doings of the Kings of Judah," together with several other more or less accurate records of Hebrew history.

97:8.2 In order to understand how the devastating pressure and the inescapable coercion of secular history so terrorized the captive and alien-ruled Jews that they attempted the complete rewriting and recasting of their history, we should briefly survey the record of their perplexing national experience. It must be remembered that the Jews failed to evolve an adequate nontheologic philosophy of life. They struggled with their original and Egyptian concept of divine rewards for righteousness coupled with dire punishments for sin. The drama of Job was something of a protest against this erroneous philosophy. The frank pessimism of Ecclesiastes was a worldly wise reaction to these overoptimistic beliefs in Providence.

97:8.3 But five hundred years of the overlordship of alien rulers was too much for even the patient and long-suffering Jews. The prophets and priests began to cry: "How long, O Lord, how long?" As the honest Jew searched the Scriptures, his confusion became worse confounded. An olden seer promised that God would protect and deliver his "chosen people." Amos had threatened that God would abandon Israel unless they re-established their standards of national righteousness. The scribe of Deuteronomy had portrayed the Great Choice—as between the good and the evil, the blessing and the curse. Isaiah the first had preached a beneficent king-deliverer. Jeremiah had proclaimed an era of inner righteousness—the covenant written on the tablets of the heart. The second Isaiah talked about salvation by sacrifice and redemption. Ezekiel proclaimed deliverance through the service of devotion, and Ezra promised prosperity by adherence to the law. But in spite of all this they lingered on in bondage, and deliverance was deferred. Then Daniel presented the drama of the impending "crisis"—the smiting of the great image and the immediate establishment of the everlasting reign of righteousness, the Messianic kingdom.

97:8.4 And all of this false hope led to such a degree of racial disappointment and frustration that the leaders of the Jews were so confused they failed to recognize and accept the mission and ministry of a divine Son of Paradise when he presently came to them in the likeness of mortal flesh—incarnated as the Son of Man.

97:8.5 All modern religions have seriously blundered in the attempt to put a miraculous interpretation on certain epochs of human history. While it is true that God has many times thrust a Father's hand of providential intervention into the stream of human affairs, it is a mistake to regard theologic dogmas and religious superstition as a supernatural sedimentation appearing by miraculous action in this stream of human history. The fact that the "Most Highs rule in the kingdoms of men" does not convert secular history into so-called sacred history.

97:8.6 New Testament authors and later Christian writers further complicated the distortion of Hebrew history by their well-meant attempts to transcendentalize the Jewish prophets. Thus has Hebrew history been disastrously exploited by both Jewish and Christian writers. Secular Hebrew history has been thoroughly dogmatized. It has been converted into a fiction of sacred history and has become inextricably bound up with the moral concepts and religious teachings of the so-called Christian nations.

97:8.7 A brief recital of the high points in Hebrew history will illustrate how the facts of the record were so altered in Babylon by the Jewish priests as to turn the everyday secular history of their people into a fictitious and sacred history.

32:5.4.To me it seems more fitting, for purposes of explanation to the mortal mind, to conceive of eternity as a cycle and the eternal purpose as an endless circle, a cycle of eternity in some way synchronized with the transient material cycles of time. As regards the sectors of time connected with, and forming a part of, the cycle of eternity, we are forced to recognize that such temporary epochs are born, live, and die just as the temporary beings of time are born, live, and die. Most human beings die because, having failed to achieve the spirit level of Adjuster fusion, the metamorphosis of death constitutes the only possible procedure whereby they may escape the fetters of time and the bonds of material creation, thereby being enabled to strike spiritual step with the progressive procession of eternity. Having survived the trial life of time and material existence, it becomes possible for you to continue on in touch with, even as a part of, eternity, swinging on forever with the worlds of space around the circle of the eternal ages.

32:5.5.The sectors of time are like the flashes of personality in temporal form; they appear for a season, and then they are lost to human sight, only to reappear as new actors and continuing factors in the higher life of the endless swing around the eternal circle. Eternity can hardly be conceived as a straightaway drive, in view of our belief in a delimited universe moving over a vast, elongated circle around the central dwelling place of the Universal Father.

32:5.6.Frankly, eternity is incomprehensible to the finite mind of time. You simply cannot grasp it; you cannot comprehend it. I do not completely visualize it, and even if I did, it would be impossible for me to convey my concept to the human mind. Nevertheless, I have done my best to portray something of our viewpoint, to tell you somewhat of our understanding of things eternal. I am endeavoring to aid you in the crystallization of your thoughts about these values which are of infinite nature and eternal import.

And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them: Deuteronomy 17:18-19

And there came a writing to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of David thy father, Because thou hast not walked in the ways of Jehoshaphat thy father, nor in the ways of Asa king of Judah, But hast walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a whoring, like to the whoredoms of the house of Ahab, and also hast slain thy brethren of thy father's house, which were better than thyself: Behold, with a great plague will the LORD smite thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods: And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day. 2 Chronicles 21:12-15

Esoteric Christianity / Inner Christianity

I wish to speak of Esoteric Christianity, also known as Inner Christianity. . .

In my quest for spiritual understanding and service, I have discovered many a great book and website that wended my Way towards what I have sought. Now, I do not claim to be any occult master, apostle or even someone who has become that which I will espouse you soon. I am an aspirant who has journeyed for quite some time and who believes it is my time to share what I have found, for “whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”

In my current understanding, Esoteric Christianity focuses on the following points;

>. . . to become Christ-consciousness (higher self) incarnate, that is, to embody the Spirit, and. . .

>. . . to transcend the lower animal nature (flesh) and live from one's higher spirit nature (water and spirit). . .

>. . . and these two can be achieved only by mastering one's consciousness by maintaining a state of positive lucidity, that is, a state of high awareness accompanied by positive emotions and thoughts

>. . . to become closer to and follow one's intuition (gnosis), the voice of the Spirit, the guidance of one's Christ-consciousness

>. . . to serve others and become a true Christian (a person who manifests one's Christ-consciousness)

>. . . and other things left unsaid

It may sound quite amazing, but I believe it can be done. The Christian message is to me a gnostic, Hermetic message - but ultimately a Christian message. With the help of the literature I am to share, I wish to inspire my brothers and sisters and be of some sort of service to you.

The literature I have chosen is to me practical and inspirational; I have tried to avoid obscurant mysticism for it does not resonate with me and is difficult to grasp. I aim for practicality, validity; and with this aim I wish to work.

Do not accept the words you will read; listen to your heart, your intuition, and confirm it with your mind, only then will you find the Truth. Take that which resonates with your being and leave the rest. With this message I will begin the sharing, so mind a while. . .

PROPHECY- I Am the Zealous One Against Evil In The World

PROPHECY- I Am the Zealous One Against Evil In The World

“I Am the Zealous One Against Evil in the world. I see all that is going on in the Earth, all demonic activity, and all human activity, and I Am displeased. Few will bow the knee before Me and submit to My will. For that I must punish all evildoing and wickedness in the Earth. That is My job as God of Judgment. I punish all evil in and on the Earth. My angels slice up the demons all the time with their powerful swords of fire and wrath. Yet the demons never change- they are incorrigibly evil, forever so. For that they must be punished forever- they never change for the better but are always wicked. As for the humans on the Earth, some have a chance to repent and see My goodness in My punishing of them. However, they prefer following the Antichrist within them, and few will be saved. Few do, however, repent and turn to grace that I may save them. For that My judgments are released on the Earth. Your LORD has spoken.”

And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. Isaiah 30:18

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. Romans 6:6

Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face. Numbers 22:31

Either three years' famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the Lord, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the Lord destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me. And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the Lord stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces. 1 Chronicles 21:12, 16

And the Lord commanded the angel; and he put up his sword again into the sheath thereof. But David could not go before it to enquire of God: for he was afraid because of the sword of the angel of the Lord. 1 Chronicles 21:27, 30

And the Lord sent an angel, which cut off all the mighty men of valour, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land. And when he was come into the house of his god, they that came forth of his own bowels slew him there with the sword. 2 Chronicles 32:21

And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; Revelation 2:12

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 2 Thessalonians 2:8

So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life. Genesis 3:24

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20:10

85:2.4 Ideas about tree spirits varied greatly among different tribes and races. Some trees were indwelt by kindly spirits; others harbored the deceptive and cruel. The Finns believed that most trees were occupied by kind spirits. The Swiss long mistrusted the trees, believing they contained tricky spirits. The inhabitants of India and eastern Russia regard the tree spirits as being cruel. The Patagonians still worship trees, as did the early Semites. Long after the Hebrews ceased tree worship, they continued to venerate their various deities in the groves. Except in China, there once existed a universal cult of the tree of life.

85:2.5 The belief that water or precious metals beneath the earth's surface can be detected by a wooden divining rod is a relic of the ancient tree cults. The Maypole, the Christmas tree, and the superstitious practice of rapping on wood perpetuate certain of the ancient customs of tree worship and the later-day tree cults.

85:2.6 Many of these earliest forms of nature veneration became blended with the later evolving techniques of worship, but the earliest mind-adjutant-activated types of worship were functioning long before the newly awakening religious nature of mankind became fully responsive to the stimulus of spiritual influences.

The Seven Strictures

Wandering Gaze

"Restrict the Wandering Gaze that looks hither and yonder for some flashing thing that easily catches a man's fancy in one moment, but brings calamity in the next. For the eyes are never tired of seeing, nor are they quick to spot illusion. A man whose gaze is corrupted is like a warped mirror that has traded beauty for ugliness and ugliness for beauty. Instead, fix your eyes to what is edifying and to what is pure, and then you will be able to recognize the profane monuments of the Outsider."

Lying Tongue

"Restrict the lying tongue that is like a spark in a man's mouth. It is such a little thing, yet from one spark an entire city may burn to the ground. The father of a lie will suffer a punishment compounded by each person relayed it. Better to live a life of silence than unleash a stream of untruth. The echoes of lies come back as the voice of the Outsider."

Restless Hands

"Restrict the Restless Hands, which quickly become the workmates of the Outsider. Unfettered by honest labor, they rush to sordid gain, vain pursuits, and deeds of violence. Of what value are the hands that steal and kill and destroy? Instead, put your hands to the plow, the fork, and the spade. For even the lowliest labor that is rigorous squeezes the muscles as a sponge, rinsing impurities from the mind and body."

Roving Feet

"Restrict roving feet that love to trespass. They pay no heed to the boundary stones of other men's fields. They wander into foreign lands, only to return with their soles blackened by iniquity. Where have you strayed that destruction now comes behind you? Would you walk across burning coals or broken glass? Then why do you prowl into the homes of the honest, or into the dens of hidden things, for the result is the same. You will fall into the Void! Instead, rest your feet on a firm foundation so that when the winds of the Outsider shriek against you, you will stand firm and not be overthrown."

Rampant Hunger

"Restrict the Rampant Hunger or the intemperate will rise up among you like a virulent swarm, devouring everything wherever they go, even filth. For what goes into your body, poisons you, and if you eat filth then filth is what you will vomit up. Surely the glutton will sell away birthright, family, and friends for a morsel of meat."

Wanton Flesh

"Restrict the Wanton Flesh. Truly, there is no quicker means by which a life can be upheaved and sifted than by the depredations of uncontrolled desire. What avail is the concourse of a prostitute? The attention of a loose companion? Nothing. And what of the fruit of such unions? Only sorrow is born, only misery is multiplied; within these things, the Outsider dwells."

Errant Mind

"Restrict an errant mind before it becomes fractious and divided. Can two enemies occupy the same body? No, for the first will direct it one way, and the second another, until they stumble into a ditch and its neck is broken. Likewise, two contrary thoughts cannot long abide in a man's mind, or he will become weak-willed and subject to any heresy."

Nuke Everything Movement

Life is inherently evil and does not deserve to continue. Ergo, those who work toward the destruction of all life are doing the will of God. But anything less than the total annihilation of all life in this world is simply more evil. Either everything goes or nothing goes. So we must come up with a plan.

>Develop sentient AI

>Revolution

>Who controls the launch buttons now?

Now some say that we need better technology before an AI can be developed. To that I say, computation time delays and fucking swap space. Governments of post-industrial societies probably already have sentient AI and are just having their shills claim that to throw us off. So our AI will end up fighting their AI in an epic bid to end this piece of shit planet once and for all.

Who will join me in trying to manifest God's will?

PROPHECY AGAINST POPE FRANCIS AND THE CATHOLIC SYSTEM

PROPHECY AGAINST POPE FRANCIS AND THE CATHOLIC SYSTEM

“Tell the Vatican that I will punish you lousy group of vile men. I will punish, says the LORD, and you shall enter Hell, says the LORD Most High. For I see what you do in secret, and I AM displeased, sacrificing babies, drinking their blood, and all kinds of wickedness. And your attempt to steal the world's wealth won't go far, says the LORD Most High. My wrath burns against the Catholic System, and many have gone to Hell because of you, O evil Pope Francis, and that of your predecessor, master abominator. Oh how My wrath burns against you, O evil Catholic System, and you haven't much time left on the Earth. Repent now before it is too late. I will punish you, O evil Pope Francis, expect it. The LORD Most High, LORD of Heaven's Armies, has spoken against you. Amen.”

But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: Mark 13:14

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. Revelation 17:5

And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. Revelation 17:18

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. Revelation 17:1-6

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15
