My FUNCTION

Sawadee Khrap

What is my function here ?   First, lets figure out where and what,  I or we ARE

In Heaven , where ALL is ONE, God’s Son, “Christ”,  is dreaming a nightmare about being separated from God and I, or we, are the characters in that dream or ILLUSIONAL world.   The Holy Spirit,  as Jesus – ‘The Light of the World’,  came to show us the path or way out.    “Christ” is the only one who can change the dream as He is the ONLY dreamer.  

“Do I wish to see my brother sinless?”.

Forgiveness is the recognition that what was imagined and judged,  in dreams,  did  not occur in God’s REALITY.  However,  as Jesus said He has given US, the characters, the power to bind or loosen these judgements as OUR reality.

“I am not a body.   I am free.    I am still as God Created me.”

Therefore,  OUR ONLY FUNCTION is to bring to OUR awareness – ALL  past and future judgements WE have or will make and judge them through CHRIST’S VISION  or the “Holy Spirit”,  NOT through our will or EGO.    Doing so will allow Christ to change this dream to one of INCLUSION or LOVE,  from one of separation, sin and death.  

It is Christ’s function to forgiveit is our function to be WILLING to RELINQUISH or LET GO of OUR judgements that bind this world.  “Do we wish to see our brother SINLESS

Look,  Listen and Do Not Judge.

So simple to say but so difficult to do in a world of judgements.  Thank God we are not alone.

Sexuality–Straight, -???-, Gay

Sawadee Khrap

What about Sexuality?  As I see it, it’s relativity easy to explain.

  • 1.)     God CREATED humans in His own IMAGE and LIKENESS – male and female He CREATED them.  One in ALL
  • 2.)    Humans at this time would be SPIRITS and CREATE like God, not pro-create, as the dictionary states “procreate by copulation” , which would require they be unique and separate.
  •       BUT IN THIS WORLD
  • 3.)    The Son of God desired or thought of being   SPECIAL – set apart – EGO-centric.
  • 4.)    This ILLUSION or DREAM of “being set apart” requires that all things be UNIQUE.
  • 5.)    To be unique demands everything be FINITE or SEPARATED,  introducing BODIES.
  • 6.)    What God created ONE, these bodies were separated into UNIQUE MALES and FEMALES. Each body retaining aspects of their other half of the whole.  They cannot “create” now  but need to PRO-CREATE
  • 7.)     The act of pro-creation introduces levels of male/female attributes.   Such levels are seen in the different sexual divisions. and since it’s all a dream, it’s  determined only by the imagination of the dreamer.    Neither  of the bodies have any control over the outcome.

No wonder there’s a confusion of levels.   In God’s REALITY there is none, Creation goes on uninterrupted and perpetually,  but in this EGO-centric nightmare any  thing goes and DOES.

The only question should be:   Do I accept this insanity or realize

 “I am not a body.

    I am free

    I am as God created me”.

Angels and The “Fall”

Sawadee Khrap

Lets set the stage – the Perfect Creation – Genesis 1.  And God said “It was good.”

So what happened ???  This video tries  to address that question :  “Where Did Satan’s First Desire for Evil Come from? // Ask Pastor John”:

My reason for the fall is stated in Isaiah 14:12

“How you have fallen from heaven, you morning star, son of the dawn!  How you have been cut down to the ground, you conqueror of nations!  You thought, “I’ll go up to heaven and set up my throne above El’s stars.  I’ll sit on the mountain far away in the north where the gods assemble.  I’ll go above the top of the clouds.  I’ll be like Elyon.”  But you’ve been brought down to Sheol, to the deepest part of the pit.”

Actually God’s Son asked a  question; “Is there anything, other than God, that will make me happy or special ?”    AND he thought about it and imagined or DREAMED it was so.   This world or ILLUSION is the impossible dream. To be separate from God in MY OWN world.

when the morning stars sang together  and all the sons of   Elohim shouted for joy?  “      (Job 38:7  NOG)

Both Jesus and Lucifer are referred to as the Morning Star.    The idea or desire to be “special” demands separation from ONENES – in other words a dualistic unrealistic dream state.  And to be separate requires a unique finite existence – hence a body.  Where WE turned OUR back to God, denying His existence, and proclaiming our own.

God is the ONLY “CREATOR” –(real) everything else, including both angels and man,  can only MAKE or DREAM (unreal).

ONLY what God Created is REAL and EXISTS, therefore as stated in ACIM : 

“Nothing real can be threatened.  Nothing unreal exists.   Herein lies the peace of God”.

Genesis 2 and beyond are the stories or myth  MADE by the insane thought of separation or desire to be  SPECIAL and therefore apart from the “ALL”

Many in Christianity try to explain this, for example in reference #2 ( below):,  “we have a SOUL or SPIRIT WITHIN  our physical body that is made in the image and likeness of God. – BUT man is a DUAL being, part spiritual and part physical”.  That’s trying to combine Duality with Non-duality.  You cannot combine opposites, one must choose one or the other.  As Jesus said “I and the Father are ONE as they are one with US.”   God is SPIRIT and ONLY SPIRIT.   The body is the symbol of the LIE or ILLUSION, to keep God out, we are spirit and only spirit.

So back to the angels –  “Before even the foundations of the earth were established, God created His angels.”   So the angels had to have fallen first.  Genesis 2 and beyond MUST be the story of the FALL OF THE ANGELS.

God did not create sin, nor kick His Son out – the Son did.    God as the Father, merely waits, as told in the story of the Prodigal Son, for his son to recognize his mistakes or bad judgments and return Home.  Give up the goal of JUDGEMENT, let God’s reality be the ONLY reality wanted. The Holy Spirit is the right-mindfulness, Lucifer (EGO) is the wrong-mindfulness of the Christ’s (God’s ONLY SON) MIND.

Here are several other videos on Creation theories.

1.)  The video talk of Genesis 1, “When Were Angels Created? When Was Satan Cast Out of Heaven?”   explaining Creation   by Dr.  John Barnett.

2.)  And “Angels Lesson 1: The nature and Origin of Angels” by  World Wide Bible School  as a second reference:

How to find PEACE.

Sawadee Khrap

As Jesus said “I am the LIGHT of the world.”  The TRUTH is the TRUTH no matter where it is said or revealed.  Is this also not Enlightenment?.   Religions argue that THEY, and only they, have the true path to salvation and dismiss others as false – BUT that is simply EGO-centric.  As Jesus said “My Father’s house has many rooms I go to make a place for you.….”

Looking at it from a ‘Christian” perspective here is an excellent video on what TRUE Discipleship really is,    by Bro. Zac Poonen  Titled  “All that Jesus Taught.”

experience

Is this not the same meaning taught in Buddha’s path to Enlightenment?   Letting go of all ATTACHMENTS, up to and including the “self” image we hold as our life,  and realizing the ONENESS of the Divine.  There can be no suffering because there is no lack.  Jesus expressed it at a personal level – A  “Father – Son – Spirit” relationship. 

Heaven or Nirvana are both reached when one has given up all ties to this world or attachments.  But the initial paths are similar, it is the EXPERIENCE of walking the path that will prove that it is TRUE.  Following the GUIDE given you,  to match your culture, customs, and parents,  is a start on recognizing that path to PEACE.

Wear your religion in your heart.

What is asked of me ???

Sawadee Khrap

I got my answer from Chapter 17 – VIII.  “The Conditions of Peace.” ACIM.    It explained Look, Listen and Do Not Judge.  

The holy instant is the shining example, the clear and unequivocal demonstration of the meaning of every relationship and every situation, seen as a whole.  Faith has accepted every aspect of the situation, and faithlessness has not forced any exclusion on it. It is a situation of perfect peace, simply because you have let it be what it is.

This simple courtesy is all the Holy Spirit asks of you.  Let truth be what it is.  Do not intrude upon it, do not attack it, do not interrupt its coming.  Let it encompass every situation and bring you peace.  Not even faith is asked of you, for truth asks nothing.  Let it enter, and it will call forth and secure for you the faith you need for peace.  But rise you not against it, for against your opposition it cannot come.

Would you not want to make a holy instant of every situation?  For such is the gift of faith, freely given wherever faithlessness is laid aside, unused.  And then the power of the Holy Spirit’s purpose is free to use instead.  This power instantly transforms all situations into one sure and continuous means for establishing His purpose, and demonstrating its reality.  What has been demonstrated has called for faith, and has been given it.  Now it becomes a fact, from which faith can no longer be withheld.  The strain of refusing faith to truth is enormous, and far greater than you realize.  But to answer truth with faith entails no strain at all.”

Look, Listen and Do Not Judge !

Universal Experience not Universal Theology

Sawadee Khrap

What is TRUE,  is true,  no matter where it is spoken – hear the Truth in this Buddhist story.

experience

There needs ONLY be a Universal experience Not Theology – As Jesus said – “My Kingdom IS NOT of this world”.    Meditation and Prayer are the senses of Spiritual (Christ’s) vison not the body’s senses.    Look, Listen and Do Not Judge.    Leave Judgment to the Holy Spirit.    Forgiveness is the Key.

??? Lust of the flesh

Sawadee Khrap

Although I don’t agree with Paul’s version of Christ’s message – it’s centered on sin and not on sinlessness.   Genesis 2  verses. Genesis 1.     A universal theology is impossible but a universal experience is necessary.    His statement in Romans 7:22  (KJV)

For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:   But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.    O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?     I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”

My body (members) made me do it,  project it out and blame someone  or something else. 

In my own case the story of “Frank” is the EGO’s dream of separation from GOD and is the symbol of missing the mark, or sin.   And as long as I continue to accept this as ‘MY’ “Judgement of My Reality”  then the dream goes on.     Loneliness or the need for special relationships, all demonstrate that I am lacking and NOT ONE with God.

The theoretical or theological symbolism is irrelevant, a ploy of the EGO, to search and not find.   I feel the same EXPERIENCE as Paul but I just express it differently with ‘MY’ symbols and words.

“My Judgements”,   or even as Buddha puts it , “My Attachments”, or as Paul says, “My members” are responsible for all the suffering that I feel because they are affixed on and  bodily directed.   Staying in the problem is not going to find a solution.

The EGO, or idea of bodies,  is constantly trying to make the claim that to be born again is to have a “holy body”  but still be spiritual while holding on to the “dream”.    just changing an illusion is still an illusion.

By meditating on the situation and making NO judgement but leaving it up to the “Holy Spirit” or Christ Mind is the only real  solution.   And yet isn’t that the same response as Paul states. “O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?   I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord”.  

So as I see it,  I but need to step back and leave FORGIVENESS up to Christ, the actual dreamer of the dream.

Another Awakening

Sawadee Khrap

genesis textHere is a great inquiry into the truth  – Genesis 1-9 Outline: Two Different Gods & Promise of Deliverance/Judgment?-

She speaks so softly but with a great zeal for seeking the truth.    I had to post her work here.

Many are waking up and the truth is spreading and exposing the real content of the dream – Not to change the world BUT to change our thinking about the world and its,  and finally our, actual purpose here.

Judgement is the lock.    Forgiveness is the key.      There is no universal theology but a universal EXPERIENCE is necessary.

What did He mean ????

Sawadee Khrap

What is the most often missed part of the Gospel of Christ ?   “My Kingdom is NOT of this world.” and “I and the Father are ONE.”.  Neither of which is represented in this world

Jesus spoke of Life, Spirit, Love, Inclusion, Forgiveness, Oneness, Eternal, GOD the Father or Creator.   All the attributes NOT sought in this world – ONLY IN ANOTHER KINGDOM.   

This is a kingdom of bodies, sufferings attacks, ego’s, separation, specialness, eat or be eaten, domination, division, fear, anger, judgements, sin leading finally to DEATH.  A Nightmare of edging out – GOD.

One or the Other is correct – they cannot both exist together.   Which will you choose?

But lets consider the first option of which Jesus spoke  – if it’s true,  Life is GOD and GOD is Life.   One is always One, Truth is always True, it can have no exceptions and still be forever True.  Opposites cannot exist in ONENESS – ONLY in separation, specialness or denial or ILLUSIONS or DREAMS.   For separation and specialness DEMAND and MAKE opposites.    And yet, even if this world is but a dream – a spark of  “The Divine” will always be present for it must exist in LIFE first.   Even in  a dream one cannot hide from its Creator – there will always be that faint voice reminding us of where we actually are – some call it “Our Conscience”  others “The Holy Spirit”.

As Jesus also said,  I paraphrase,   “Your father is the father of lies, he was a liar from the beginning “     A DREAMER of separation and specialness – EGO – or “self”, that idea that thinks it is unique.

What is SALVATION or ENLIGHTNMENT but merely recognizing that OUR KINGDOM is NOT of this world and we are “AS GOD CREATED US”.   Jesus shows the way –

Two Creations ????

Sawaee Khrap

Here’s the best example of trying to understand Genesis but still suffers from the “Dualistic” thinking of this world and not from the point of reference of the “Non-dualistic” view actually expressed in Genesis 1 or by the words of Jesus.

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO-3whfJ_fY&ab_channel=DavidVose

The illusion is always an illusion – you cannot bring the illusion to truth but only bring the truth to the illusion and shine it away in the light of Enlightenment.

New Year Resolution

Sawadee Khrap

Making your New Year Resolution – try these suggestions by Joe Dispenza “Living in SURVIVAL  vs. Living in CREATION”.    Although he speaks of healing the body, what is he actually saying?  Look, Listen and Do Not Judge – Leave judgement up to the Holy Spirit – free yourself of stress – I AM AS GOD CREATED ME.    I AM NOT THE BODY       I AM protected by God’s LOVE        “I AM ! ”

As the Course in Chapter 29 – IX “The Forgiving Dream”  states:

A dream of judgment came into the mind that God created perfect as Himself.  And in that dream was Heaven changed to hell, and God made enemy unto His Son.  How can God’s Son awaken from the dream?  It is a dream of judgment.  So must he judge not, and he will waken.  For the dream will seem to last while he is part of it.  Judge not, for he who judges will have need of idols, which will hold the judgment off from resting on himself.  Nor can he know the Self he has condemned.  Judge not, because you make yourself a part of evil dreams, where idols are your “true” identity, and your salvation from the judgment laid in terror and in guilt upon yourself.

All figures in the dream are idols, made to save you from the dream.  Yet they are part of what they have been made to save you from.  Thus does an idol keep the dream alive and terrible, for who could wish for one unless he were in terror and despair?  And this the idol represents, and so its worship is the worship of despair and terror, and the dream from which they come.  Judgment is an injustice to God’s Son, and it is justice that who judges him will not escape the penalty he laid upon himself within the dream he made.  God knows of justice, not of penalty.  But in the dream of judgment you attack and are condemned; and wish to be the slave of idols, which are interposed between your judgment and the penalty it brings.

There can be no salvation in the dream as you are dreaming it.  For idols must be part of it, to save you from what you believe you have accomplished, and have done to make you sinful and put out the light within you.  Little child, the light is there.  You do but dream, and idols are the toys you dream you play with.

“Be IN the world but not OF the world.”

2020 Epilogue ACIM

Sawadee Khrap

A Course in Miracles – Workbook Lesson Epilogue

This course is a beginning, not an end.  Your Friend goes with you.  You are not alone.  No one who calls on Him can call in vain.  Whatever troubles you, be certain that He has the answer, and will gladly give it to you, if you simply turn to Him and ask it of Him.  He will not withhold all answers that you need for anything that seems to trouble you.  He knows the way to solve all problems, and resolve all doubts.  His certainty is yours.  You need but ask it of Him, and it will be given you.

You are as certain of arriving home as is the pathway of the sun laid down before it rises, after it has set, and in the half-lit hours in between.  Indeed, your pathway is more certain still.  For it can not be possible to change the course of those whom God has called to Him.  Therefore obey your will, and follow Him Whom you accepted as your voice, to speak of what you really want and really need.  His is the Voice for God and also yours.  And thus He speaks of freedom and of truth.

No more specific lessons are assigned, for there is no more need of them. Henceforth, hear but the Voice for God and for your Self when you retire from the world, to seek reality instead.  He will direct your efforts, telling you exactly what to do, how to direct your mind, and when to come to Him in silence, asking for His sure direction and His certain Word.  His is the Word that God has given you.  His is the Word you chose to be your own.

And now I place you in His hands, to be His faithful follower, with Him as Guide through every difficulty and all pain that you may think is real.  Nor will He give you pleasures that will pass away, for He gives only the eternal and the good.  Let Him prepare you further.  He has earned your trust by speaking daily to you of your Father and your brother and your Self.  He will continue.  Now you walk with Him, as certain as is He of where you go; as sure as He of how you should proceed; as confident as He is of the goal, and of your safe arrival in the end.

The end is certain, and the means as well.  To this we say “Amen.”  You will be told exactly what God wills for you each time there is a choice to make.  And He will speak for God and for your Self, thus making sure that hell will claim you not, and that each choice you make brings Heaven nearer to your reach.  And so we walk with Him from this time on, and turn to Him for guidance and for peace and sure direction.  Joy attends our way.  For we go homeward to an open door which God has held unclosed to welcome us.

We trust our ways to Him and say “Amen.”  In peace we will continue in His way, and trust all things to Him.  In confidence we wait His answers, as we ask His Will in everything we do.  He loves God’s Son as we would love him.  And He teaches us how to behold him through His eyes, and love him as He does.  You do not walk alone.  God’s angels hover near and all about.  His Love surrounds you, and of this be sure; that I will never leave you comfortless.”

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021

Sawadee Khrap

TRUTH is always true, wherever it is encountered.   Here’s great insight from Aaron Abke.   aaron

But always remember as stated in ACIM- Urtext Volume IV – Use of terms – Introduction :

“All terms are potentially controversial, and those who seek controversy will find it. Yet those who seek clarification will find it as well. They must, however, be willing to overlook controversy, recognizing that it is a defense against truth in the form of a delaying maneuver. Theological considerations as such are necessarily controversial, since they depend on belief and can therefore be accepted or rejected. A universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is not only possible but necessary. It is this experience toward which the course is directed. Here alone consistency becomes possible because here alone uncertainty ends.”

Consume the “Message” but do not argue about the Messenger.   As Jesus stated : ”In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”.  (John 14:2  KJV)

“You are gods”

Sawadee Khrap

Note what is stated in  Psalm 82  A psalm by Asaph.   Jesus makes mention of this passage – “You are gods”.    Jesus also said that He and the Father are ONE and we are ONE with them as we , like He, does the Will of the Father, ELOHIM.

Elohim takes his place in his own assembly. He pronounces judgment among the gods:How long are you going to judge unfairly?  How long are you going to side with wicked people?” Selah  Defend weak people and orphans.  Protect the rights of the oppressed and the poor. Rescue weak and needy people.  Help them escape the power of wicked people. Wicked people do not know or understand anything.  As they walk around in the dark, all the foundations of the earth shake. 

I said, “You are gods.   You are all sons of Elyon.  You will certainly die like humans and fall like any prince.” Arise, O Elohim!  Judge the earth, because all the nations belong to you.

JUDGE ONLY with the Holy Spirit of Elohim and NOT with the wicked one – Do not view the world through the darkened lens of the EGO, the idea of separation and specialness, But rejoice in the Light of Forgiveness –  Christ’s Vision – True Judgement.

Pain-Joy both show lack

Sawadee Khrap

Today at my tea time I was watching the people go by and meditating on what is “joy”.   

I realized that I had been usually judging “joy” from a “lack” perspective.  I was defining being joyful as obtaining something that I had lacked and now it was mine.  So both joy and pain demonstrated that I was lacking, incomplete or not whole.   And what is that except the ego’s entire premise – that  I am separated from “Life itself”, subject to death, alone and helpless.

BUT,  remembering that  “I am as God created me”, complete and therefore joy “itself”.    True joy was not a euphoric feeling that I had just gained something but rather that God’s Peace was always present within me.   That  “BEING”  “One” with God and Christ and all my brothers – I had everything ,  lacking nothing.  That this world of opposites was just a state of mind, a nightmare or dream.   That to see this world free was My Freedom too.  Or as Buddha also put it, release all attachments (judgements) ,  ultimately to “self” to eliminate suffering and obtain ONENESS or Enlightenment.

Good cup of tea.!!!
