David on dreaming

Sawadee Khrap

dreamer

Here’s a great video from David Hoffmeister that puts more light on the Dreamer, Character relationship that I  speak a lot about.

One Dreamer – One dream   Christ is the dreamer, the ONENESS

Awareness of dreaming is the real function of Godʹs teachers. They watch the dream figures come and go, shift and change, suffer and die. Yet they are not deceived by what they see. They recognize that to behold a dream figure as sick and separate is no more real than to regard it as healthy and beautiful.”      {Manual for Teachers 13:6}

CO poisoning–Medical Update

Sawadee Khrap

Last October, 2019,  I had a extreme poisoning from a leakage in my car exhaust.  Sick for 3 days, took about week to get over the effects.   But yesterday a friend stated that he had seen a dramatic change in my health since that time.       And guess what ?

Just discovered several articles explaining the possible results of Carbon Monoxide poisoning. “Parkinson-ISM” !!!     all the symptoms and behaviors.   And many times appearing 1-2 years after the incident.   Couple this with the same effects that can be caused by Madiplot (BP med) and I am the prefect candidate.     For anyone interested, comment me and I will send you the article’s links.

I have stopped the Madiplot for 4 days now and most of the symptoms are greatly reduced or almost gone.  Reports state that this detox can take up to 4 months, so I’ll just hang with it and see.

But so far,  Good News,  and I am feeling much better.

“The REDEMPTION”– Dance with Great Choreography

Sawadee Khrap

Here is the Epic story of man’s “Fall into Sin”, the battle between the Angels, Lucifer and Michael, the “Morning Stars”.    This Zurcaroh Dance Group’s performance on AGT 2018  embodies the story of Adam and Eve’s fall from GRACE into CIAOS and SIN and then REDEMPTION. 

Thanks Kevin for the link.   I have more detail explaining the theology of the myth in my earlier post on Religions.  Please check it out after the show.

Rest ! At last.

Sawadee Khrap

Today’s ACIM Lesson #249:

Forgiveness ends all suffering and loss.

Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense. Attack is gone, and madness has an end. What suffering is now conceiv­able? What loss can be sustained? The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving. It is now so like to Heaven that it quickly is transformed into the light that it reflects. And so the journey which the Son of God began has ended in the light from which he came.

Father, we would return our minds to You. We have betrayed them, held them in a vise of bitterness, and frightened them with thoughts of violence and death. Now would we rest again in You, as You created us.”

It speaks for itself

First blindness, hairy hands and finally a bad military

Sawadee Khrap

Just a note of interest – floods, grasshoppers, typhons, tariffs, and now MASTURBATION – the plagues of China.   As reported in the New York Post this is becoming a very serious problem.

“PLA found that 8 percent of candidates failed because of abnormalities found in their scrotum from sitting too much. Another 25 percent flunked because of blood and urine tests.

It recommended that candidates follow 10 basic principles, including exercising more, cutting out fizzy drinks and booze, limiting computer games and masturbation, not getting a tattoo and drinking clean water.”

(In my opinion, Yes, that should take care of the problem)

Hurray for the local Naturist club.  I wish I could make the  party and meeting in Bangkok for their “Body  painting” and dinner Party.     Looks like it would be great fun,  not to mention “artistic”, especially judging from the example they showed:

777 verses 666

Sawadee Khrap

I was just discussing “walking in faith” with  Buddhist friend of mine…. different myths, cultures, language, experiences, BUT the TRUTH MUST BE true for ALL or it’s NOT the TRUTH.   Attachments or Judgments, is there a difference?  NOT REALY – learn to let them go.   Look for the TRUTH, which must be the same for both.   Lately I have been hearing a lot about the “666”  discussion.  In John 3, Jesus says:

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

In Google:   6 and 7 are presented as:

  1. SIX is also related to the Hebrew word shanah, meaning change or repeat.   Both Hebrew and Christian sources believe six indicates “imperfection,” “man”, or “evil.” For Christianity, this occurs preeminently in the Book of Revelation.         Buddhist cosmology typically identifies six realms of rebirth and existence: gods, demi-gods, humans, animals, hungry ghosts and hells. Earlier Buddhist texts refer to five realms rather than six realms; when described as five realms, the god realm and demi-god realm constitute a single realm.
  2. SEVEN is the number of completeness and perfection (both physical and spiritual). It derives much of its meaning from being tied directly to God’s creation of all things. … The word ‘created’ is used 7 times describing God’s creative work (Genesis 1:1, 21, 27 three times; 2:3; 2:4).              In Buddhism, seven is the number of ascent, and Buddha is said to have walked this number of steps at his birth.

“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

  • 777  Spirit, of Spirit, by Spirit     Genesis 1   Created in the IMAGE and LIKENESS of God
  • 666  Mark of the beast- “man,man,man” Genesis 2   made from the dust of the earth.
    “flesh, of flesh and by flesh”

Is it coincidence or the commonality of TRUTH that both faiths or paths express the same underlying similarities    Although I haven’t studied the Buddhist Dhamma, I would love to hear, from  any reader, their take on the subjects.  Google search states:

“Buddhism says that there is one in many and many in one, but not that we are all one. We are individuals and each one of us is the whole of our own Universe in which all the others appear in as characters.”

Buddha dealt with the sufferings and attachments in this world, leaving enlightenment to the Enlightened,  whereas Jesus spoke of a personal “SPIRIT-ual” relationship.   As Jesus said “My Father’s mansion has many rooms and I go to make a place for you.”  Through the Blog I hope to delve deeper into these concepts.

Carry the Gospel, But first understand it.

Sawadee Khrap

I now see  and accept my function as ‘carrying the Gospel’, but I had to understand or ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE it first.  My theology or basis for life was fabricated on a pyramid of lies and misconceptions.   Judgments I had made and treasured as the truth, never to be brought to the LIGHT of God’s TRUTH.  As Jesus said “The truth WILL set you free”.  Today’s,  Sept. 1st,  lesson from ACIM is 245:

Your peace is with me, Father. I am safe.

1. Your peace surrounds me, Father. Where I go, Your peace goes there with me. It sheds its light on everyone I meet. I bring it to the desolate and lonely and afraid. I give Your peace to those who suffer pain, or grieve for loss, or think they are bereft of hope and happiness. Send them to me, my Father. Let me bring Your peace with me. For I would save Your Son, as is Your Will, that I may come to recognize my Self.

2. And so we go in peace. To all the world we give the message that we have received. And thus we come to hear the Voice for God, Who speaks to us as we relate His Word; Whose Love we recognize because we share the Word that He has given unto us.

And what is peace?, except the realization that fear, guilt, sacrifice, suffering and death are NOT the WILL of GOD nor the state of HIS CREATION. 

I also realize that “theologies” or myths of this world and its views need to be abandoned, and ‘come with a open mind’ to hear God and His Holy Spirit speak directly to me, makes complete and perfect sense.  EVERYTHING in this world , including its theologies, need to be first re-considered and then let go.

Father, help me to openly explain my journey to You, carrying the message, so that others struggling with similar experiences,  backgrounds, questions of faith, or fear or guilt, may find resolution for their issues and be open to Your LOVEING EMBRACE and ETERNAL PEACE.  In this world, where all theologies, beliefs, religions, saints and sinners, are but  symbols.    ALL symbols are just that “SYMBOLS”, each named for a fragment of THEIR REALITY, special and separate in their definition, thus apart from the ALL.   Your Peace is  ONENESS I AM  AS GOD CREATED ME !.  God’s Sons are One, God is ONE – The ‘ELOHIM’. (Father-Son-Holy Spirit).

Today I will judge nothing that occurs.

Sawadee Khrap

After spending all morning doing today’s previous posting I looked at the ACIM Lesson for today Aug 30 :

LESSON 243

Today I will judge nothing that occurs.

1. I will be honest with myself today. I will not think that I already know what must remain beyond my present grasp. I will not think I understand the whole from bits of my perception, which are all that I can see. Today I recognize that this is so. And so I am relieved of judgments that I cannot make. Thus do I free myself and what I look upon, to be in peace as God created us.

2. Father, today I leave creation free to be itself. I honor all its parts, in which I am included. We are one because each part contains Your mem­ory, and truth must shine in all of us as one.

And find it speaks for itself.

Consciousness or the Dreamer

Sawadee Khrap

What is Consciousness? – a million-dollar question isn’t it?    In this video Sadhguru clears it out for us, looking at it from Mystic point of view, which puts in a different dimension which we have never heard from anyone.”.

Consciousness

BUT then consider the ‘MIND” of the Dreamer, isn’t this the absolute consciousness where all concepts originate and exist.  The MIND of Christ, One with God or dreaming of separation.  Neither can be explained with the symbols of this world, but both can be experienced here.    This is the ‘teachings’ of Jesus, The Gospel, The Good New.  “I have overcome the world.”

He, Sadhguru, does point out that the illusion of chemical induced experiences may appear to be mystical insight but nevertheless are still in the illusionary realm.  The soap bubble image is a great example of this idea.   And some great comments are posted too – well worth reading and meditating on.   I particularly like Blondie Kowalski’s posting:

“Experiencing yourself as boundless consciousness is what a baby feels all the time. Before you learn to distinguish between You and Objects, there is no subject and object and you are everywhere as pure consciousness. Since for babies there is no subject/object distinction there is also no Time, so you are also Now and Forever. Observe babies, they feel that they are the objects they look at, there is no subject/object duality in them at all, only bliss and instincts. It’s a profound illusion this, the illusion of mystical union with God and consciousness as source of creation. This experience of at-oneness lies at the root of everyone’s personality because we were all babies once, it’s like the carpet on which the furniture of your personality gets accumulated. Is that consciousness really God? I doubt it. Accessing this dimension gives you psychological wisdom in that you get to look at the structure of your personality from the deepest level inside yourself that is possible, almost like inverting yourself from the inside and out.”

I also doubt its God,  I think it’s the CHARACTER of the DREAM, intensely trying to identify itself as a SPECIAL and SEPARATE existence from the ALL.    ISN’T IT SO !

Haystack of lies

Sawadee Khrap

Here is a great talk on ‘PURPOSE’ by David Hoffmeister.   I particularly like the analogy of the needle in the haystack he spoke of early in the chat.

purpose 

I pictured it as trying to find the TRUE purpose or TRUTH under a stack of ‘Judgments’ I have made and defend as ‘MY’ Truth or existence.    Thank God,  Jesus and the Holy Spirit,  is teaching me that this idea or concept of what I am is just that a ‘FALSE IMAGE or ILLUSION.’   I AM AS GOD CREATED ME.   But that implies that I am Spirit, the SON, one with God, in the Image and Likeness of my Father.   I do not exist apart from Him nor SPECIAL in any way from Him or ANY OF HIS SONS, we are all ONE. 

The straw is merely the judgments, desires to be separate or special,  or as the Buddhists say ‘attachments’ that is burying my true identity, function and purpose.    Forgiveness is the bringing to the surface these false conceptions and looking at the through the eyes of Christ and realizing they are not real. 

Christ, the true Son of God, THE DREAMER, imagining the dream or nightmare of separation and the peopled illusion of the projection of this world to prove it to Himself.  The “ELOHIM”, Father-Son-Holy Spirit, broken into fragments, each called by a name, a unique character  and ALONE.

Thanks be to God a path was provided out of this NIGHTMARE.

Emphasize the Middle Path

Sawadee Khrap

Lets look at what Google says about Buddhism and the middle path:

      1. What is the middle path of Buddhism?    The middle path generally refers to the avoidance of two extremes of practical life, namely, indulgence in sensual pleasures on the one hand and severe asceticism on the other. According to the religious biography, the Buddha was supposed to have lived a very comfortable and affluent life before renunciation.
      2. Why is the middle way important?     Buddhism teaches that it is this middle way between denial and self-indulgence that can help someone reach enlightenment. … Buddhism teaches that if people live in a moderate way, just like the Buddha did when he lived the middle way, this inequality will be reduced and the problems of poverty could be avoided.
      3. What are the 8 steps to nirvana?     Following the Noble Eightfold Path leads to liberation in the form of nirvana: (…) Just this noble eightfold path: right view, right aspiration, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration.
      4. What is walking the middle path?    To Walk the Middle Path means replacing “either-or” thinking with collaborative “both-and” thinking. … Too often, we make up our minds about how we feel about something using a black and white, all or nothing, decision-making construct.

      Although I personally try to follow my Master’s commands and the theology, myths and beliefs are different , isn’t this the same concept that Jesus taught ?   For example:

      “John 5:22 says that “the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son.” Then 8:15 where Jesus says “I judge no man.” What does it mean that the Father has committed all judgment unto the Son?

      The passage in 8:15 comes in the context of Jesus’ teaching in the synagogue and his discussions with the Pharisees. Again, they are discussing judgment. Here, however, it is the judgment of the Pharisees. Jesus is admonishing them for judging according to human standards and says that “I pass judgment on no one.” In other words, he doesn’t use human standards to make judgments. The passage continues, “But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father who sent me.” (16) This is in accord with his previous statement of 5:22. He and the Father use divine standards for judgment, unlike the Pharisees who are quick to judge based on appearances or points of law.

      in the Gospel of Thomas  #102    Jesus says:  “Woe to them, the Pharisees, for they are like a dog sleeping in a cattle trough, for it neither eats nor [lets] the cattle eat.”

      And again this same concept is expressed in the Unity church teachings:

      PASSAGE: “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:18-19).
       
      COMMENT: “Earth” is the world of illusion in which we live. “Heaven” is the realm of consciousness in which we are eternally One with Spirit. Jesus is teaching us here—as he does throughout his ministry—that our life experience will express according to our faith. We “bind on earth” when we decide what we believe about this life experience—and that belief will become our full experience. If we believe in a dangerous world, we will experience a dangerous world. If we believe in an enemy trying to do us harm, that will be our experience. If, on the other hand, we “loose” ourselves from those negative beliefs and hold to the truth that there is One Presence and One Power, seeking always to express in and through us as our highest, greatest Good, that will be the life we experience. God—the Father in heaven, the Source of all that is—will express in our lives according to the beliefs we hold.  Blessings!    Rev. Ed

      LOOK, LISTEN, AND DO NOT JUDGE.      Herein lies the Peace of God

      Believing the lies

      Sawadee Khrap

      All my life I can only think of how badly every religious belief failed me.  I did NOT once consider that I may have been interpreting them wrong or only taking what I wanted and leaving the important parts.  Through my greatest addiction, alcoholism, I found my greatest freedom or PATH.  A path to a true relationship with God, an EXPRENCE and not just a theory.  A path of SURENDER and PEACE. 

      A path that can only be recognized by being honest with  myself and WALKING IT.   And yet as I speak of experience I also feel it is my function to help others by explaining what I found I had to do.  I trust that I will stand back and let God lead the way to what I try to explain in this blog of my journey and understanding of walking that path .  A path where my outward world appears to change little but my inward world is turned up side down.

      I pray that some of it may resonate with you and help you determine your future path.  That what we have in common WE CAN SHARE and through it realize the ONENESS of God
