Non-Dualistic approach – but not quite.

Sawadee Khrap

At AA meetings, there’s a saying “attend and listen long enough and you will hear your story.”.  So true, and it  happened to me , when another shared their story of addiction  – it was almost  exactly like me talking –  In almost all circumstances it was the same with few exceptions, but those exceptions were profound and specific to each of us.

The same thing just occurred arabiregarding my Theology or concept of life.   In this talk by Filip, of   “Let’s talk Religion”  on YouTube titled  “Ibn ‘Arabi & The Unity of Being”  On the religion and Theology of this Mystic Sufi Muslim,  I heard my thoughts and concepts presented but with an glaring exception.    The  major exception, is that I see he is also trying to justify and include together  the existence of both the UN-Real and Real  –   GOD and ILLUSION   This world and God.  

Of course my Master is Jesus’s teachings , (NOT Paul’s or the Church)  and His theology,  elucidated,  as presented in the ACIM literature.   A Non-Dualistic Theology where ONLY God Exists and anything else but an Illusion or dream, and that includes ALL OF THIS world.  FORGIVENESS is the only function here – for by removing the desire to be special and unlocking the dream,  allows Christ’s Vision to see God’s Reality or Creation as it really is.  “I AM”    Check it out.

“Guarding our thought life”

Here’s a great sermon by Joel Osten.  Positive and right on,  not listening to our ego thoughts that bring us down.  Many Christian denominations consider his church to joelbe New Age and on the verge of Heresy.   Not following “their” gospel of sinner be dammed and forever gravelling for salvation.  And yet, I hear nothing that is not the TRUTH and actually needed to live a healthy “Christ Vision”  existence.   This same message is taught in ACIM, Buddhism, Hinduism, Christ’s Gospel in the Bible and many more faiths.   I can’t,  for the life of me,  fathom the idea that God provided ONLY one way to salvation.  Almost all faiths teach “acceptance” and yet they don’t consider or accept each other – SAD.   Listen, Hear the MESSAGE and DO NOT condemn the messenger.

“We ARE the prey”

Sawadee Khrap

I don’t usually follow conspiracy theories but this one I think has some merit.  It’s worth checking out and watching to see what unfolds.  The linkage is very preycompelling particularly with the fact that the usage of alternative treatments has really been silenced.  I think I just read that the Big Pharma CEO’s has now reached 9 NEW BILLIONAIRS.  And Gates is trying to block the release of patents for the vaccines.  Someone’s driving this.  I’m sure it’s MONEY!

Pill Pushers

Sawadee Khrap

I have been reducing my blood pressure medicine for 7 months now and have acvalmost eliminated them completely by using good diet and exercise.  Before I started getting rid of them, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.  I had all the classic symptoms – slow blinking, shaking, lip tremors, poor balance, stiff posture, lack of arm movement while walking, and so on.,   At that time I read a article talking about Pseudo-Parkinson’s caused by some BP meds, which I was on.  It even has a name – DIP – Drug Induced Parkinson’s.     By God, it was right – almost all affects are gone now. 

But, I still have a persistent cough and I attributed it to the meds but will try this tonic approach to see if my cough is actually caused by acid reflex..  What a relief if that is the case.     I’ll post my progress.

Don’t be held captive by the drug pushers – seek natural healing .

“Full Preterism” or two-house theology

Sawadee Khrap

It’s amazing to me the many, many differences seen in Christian Theology.  Check this out  YouTube Video.  Now we can call ourselves a “Preterist”  And yet the ACIM’s  version of “Theology” answers these questions and remains constantly on the Function of Christ in the Bible and its relationship to God and Heaven.

“We come from the LIGHT”

Sawadee Khrap

Here is a wonderful examination of the “Gospel of Thomas” with Elaine Pagels.   PagelsAnd then consider the teachings of ACM.  And re-visit the teaching of the Bible,  looking at it from a Non-DUALISTIC perspective. 

The Holy Spirit speaks through “ALL”  if  we but choose to listen .

Look, Listen, and DO NOT JUDGE.   Leave Judgement up to the Holy Spirit.

Our separation was from the desire to be special and have the power to judge good from evil.  It is our “judgements”  that have determined our perspective of this world.

Something in Book of Genesis That No One Can Work Out

Sawadee Khrap

Something in the Book of Genesis That No One Can Work Out   YouTube video.  Listen to this video and consider the NON_DUALISTIC view of creation in genesisGenesis 1 as apposed to the DUALISTIC view or myth of Genesis 2 as pointed out in this video.  For now, I will just leave it at that question but will expand on more of “my” explanation in further posts.

“Many will come in my name”

Sawadee Khrap

Although the language here is somewhat “New Age”, the underlying perspective is Look, Listen, and Do Not Judge.   The underlying theology is that elucidated in “Christ lettersA Course In Miracles”.   Following the daily lessons in ACIM will help to see the world through this perception.  Are these the words of Jeshua ?   Perhaps, but does it make a difference – the truth is the truth  – wherever it is said.    All who have pondered what the reality of God is and asked for help has received the Word of the Holy Spirit and can report what they have heard.  If we are “One” in God,  than ALL are “The Christ”, the Beloved Son of God, and hear His Word.  As Jesus said,:

“”Teacher,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.”   “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me,  for whoever is not against us is for us.  Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward.”     (Mark 9:38)

Non-Duality verses Dualistic thinking

Sawadee Khrap

Listen closely and consider which version is Non-Dualistic verses Dualistic, where Creationeverything is ONE, Spirit or Thought  or everything is separate – special,  named, unique, materialistic bodies.    Taking this difference in to account the Teachings of Jesus takes on different meanings.  I will try to explain my interpretation of the quandary throughout the balance of this blog.

Closest Gnostic Myth to my belief – Valentinians

Sawadee Khrap

valentnianI did  a earlier post on Gnosis as heresy, but here is another YouTube video definitely worth watching,  Gnostics; Valentinians and why orthodox believers feared them by Pat Pryor 

This Sect which was declared heresy by the Catholic Church fathers, I believe had a better understanding of the Myth of  Creation as stated in Genesis 1, except they also tried to make the this world and the body real.  They expressed the “ONE=ness” or Fullness of God as absolute but did not see this world as an ILLUSION or dream – not good nor evil – just an illusion.

From a still Egotistic vantage point they considered themselves the only ones saved because it, or Gnosis, or knowledge of the Divine was ONLY realized through their teachings – definitely excluding the Orthodox view from Christ’s salvation.   Of course the earlier church clergy would have to kick them out and trash their views.  History is always written by the victors.   The EGO always screams the loudest.

In the following posts of this blog I will attempt to point out the similarities and differences,  that I see,  in the Ancient and current Religious Myths that hopefully will point to a fuller understanding of the Creation and our relationship to God.

I am determined to see !!

Sawadee Khrap

“I am determined to see”.   To SEE WHAT?

prayerFr. Richard Rohr talks about this as “Prayer” in this video chat about “How Ancient Christians used to Pray”     

ACIM also addresses this question in several lessons in the workbook such as:

  • Lesson 55  “I am determined to see the witnesses to the truth in me, rather than those which show me an illusion of myself.”
  • Lesson 54  “I would look upon the witnesses that show me the thinking of the world has been changed.”
  • Lesson 21  “It is merely an example of the belief that some forms of attack are more justified than others.”
  • Lesson 20  “You can see them differently, and you will.   What you desire you will see.  Such is the real law of cause and effect as it operates in the world.”
  • Lesson 84  “I am in the likeness of my Creator.  I cannot suffer, I cannot experience loss and I cannot die.   I am not a body.  I would recognize my reality today.”

In all the above,  it is the recognition that what I see is but a reflection of my inner thoughts.  It is an illusion of my desire to judge and control.  In all situations I am the “Hero” of the dream, regardless of whether I see myself as the victim or the attacker.   Only the separated or special have anything to attack – Oneness cannot attack itself.  “Seek not to change the world, but rather to change my mind about the world.”    Look, Listen, and Do Not Judge.

Franciscan Mysticism part1 An "INCLUSIVE" vision.

Sawadee Khrap

I am amazed and gladdened by the YouTube videos that have been recommended to me lately.   FranciacanThis one on the Newton Boyd channel about the Franciscan order of the Catholic Religion I think is outstanding.     The world is awaking.

Being is ONE     This abstract vision creates an inclusive universe.   Where everything is sacred and you can’t divide the world into the Sacred and the Profane.  Not the Dualistic view of the hell and brimstone orthodoxic church but a Christ like Non-Dualistic realization of God’s Genesis 1 Creation.

Gnosis as Heresy

Here is the best Lecture I have seen on Gnosticisms.   THE GNOSTIC WORLDVIEW – A Lecture by LAURENCE CARUANA .Gnostic  It’s 2 hr. long so be prepared but what a detailed analysis.  I also find it worthwhile to study the differences and similarities between early Egyptian, Semitic, Sumerian, Hinduism, Buddhism, Chinese , Ancient and the more modern Christian Theologies.   There is a commonality that can be observed and expressed throughout all of them,  yet each believe they have the “truest answer”  to the unknown.     The TRUTH is TRUE wherever it is spoken.

The big problem I can see is the result of Christian Religionist’s attempts to justify “THIS”  Material World as “reality” even though, their redeemer,  Jesus, The Christ said  “My Kingdom is NOT of this world”.   The first Chapter in the Bible states that God Created the world and pronounced it GOOD and COMPLETED and that Man was Created in the Image and Likeness of God, male / female  – Spirit, no mention of bodies.   Then in Chapter 2 to the end, a world was “made” that was the complete opposite of that Created in Chapter1.  Consider, in the Gospel of John,

  “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

Unlike the modern Christian view where “sin” is the paramount protagonist and this world is real, the body is God’s temple and salvation is by Christ’s blood sacrifice   OR    like the Gnostic view where this world is evil and salvation is only to a select few who are given Secret Divine Knowledge,   I’ve believe in a inclusive ‘mythology’ that encompasses the truths expressed by the ancient Gnostics, ACIM, AA, Buddhism and the Bible.   I am convinced that a universal theology is impossible BUT that a universal EXPERIENCE is essential.  I believe this world is but a EGO-centric projected dream of our perceived desire to be special or separated from God and is elucidated in the Bible from Genesis Chapter 2 till the end, with the first Chapter of Genesis being the UN-separated story of Creation. I also believe that Jesus was the physical manifestation of the Self or Son of Creation stated in Genesis 1, and existed in the Dream to show us the way or path to salvation.  Look, Listen, and Do Not Judge.  Leave judgement to the Holy Spirit.

Additionally, I also find the teaching of “A Course In Miracles” to be a more understandable mythology that is INCLUSIVE and NON-DUALISTIC and does NOT purport to be salvation’s end but merely develops and demonstrates a practical approach to remove the obstacles to LOVE and leaves salvation to God, The Holy Spirit, and Christ.   It does however emphasizes the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Scriptures.

All of the esoteric sayings of Jesus, expressed in the Canon and Apocryphal Books are easily understood when viewed from a NON-DULISTIC perspective.  “I and the Father are ONE”  and NOT from a dualistic perspective where the “ALL” is divided and separated into competing attempts to be SPECIAL and/or DISTINCT.
