Powerful Sermon from a dualistic view

Sawadee Khrap

Here is a very powerful sermon:  Understanding The Nature of The Kingdom | Dr. Myles Munroe.  Although his view or point of reference, is of a dualistic world or existence, listen very closely to it from a NON_DALISTIC  viewpoint and feel the strength in it’s message

leaders of change.

Wow !  The TRUTH is being taught on earth as it is in Heaven.   The Holy Spirit’s voice is even heard through the materialistic viewpoint of the dualistic belief in what this world is.  The idea that we are all the anointed kings of Christ’s or The Father’s Kingdom echoes throughout this sermon.

This was told before – but no one listened

Sawadee Khrap

Ha Ha Ha,    This “new age” bullshit, we have been told this story in the Bible and other spiritual writings, explained in Jesus’s teachings,  expanded in ACIM,  talked about by prophets, sages, and mystics and now Elon Musk and Stephen Hawkings are only repeating the message.   They know it’s true, but still view it from a egotistic perspective, EGO, Edging God Out.     But the answer is still:    Look, Listen, and Do NOT Judge.

 1-SIMULATION

WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO ACCEPT IT AND STOP THINKING WE CAN MAKE JUDGMENTS WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES ????   

BUT NOT this EGOTISTIC solution, presented in this video,  which is the opposite of INCLUSION, and how to live together. This would only result in further division based on OUR preferences and not reach PEACE, or no conflict.

Is God really mad NOW !!!

Sawadee Khrap

WOW !!!   You thought the Tower of Babel’s  little fiasco was bad  – just think how mad God is now that we landed on Mars.   I guess we just have to wait and see.

But this does show a good reason to view the Bible from Genesis 1 and a Non-Dualistic explanation of the Creation, not from the myth theory of sin and the story of retaliation by God told in Genesis 2 and on ……….  Click on the image for more.

Who broke your toy ?

Have you ever asked a kid “Who broke your toy?” and got the answer “The kid up the block did, NOT ME !”     Is this an excogitation of what really is happening in this world?   Is this ‘our’ production of the Prodigal Son movie,  where the Writer, Producer and Director is ONE IN THE SAME and playing all the parts being even the supporting characters, or egos,  interacting with themselves?

Could it be the ‘Children of God’, collectively called “The Christ”, or at least part of them,  are projecting a commonly agreed story. except it’s this world of deflected guilt.  Or maybe  they just wanted to be special, in a non-dualistic Spirit Heaven , and when it didn’t happen , they made-up their own version of life,  a world of separation, denying reality,  like the kid with the toy, and insisting someone else did it – The snake, fallen Angel, or the Devil.

Impossible you think, take for example the movie “Deconstructing Harry”  (1997) Written, Directed, and Stars: Woody Allen, with a few supporting actors.  The plot; Suffering from writer’s block and eagerly awaiting his writing award, Harry Block remembers events from his past and scenes from his best-selling books as characters, real and fictional, come back to haunt him.

Or perhaps consider:  Johnson George as 45 separate roles including Mahatma Gandhi, Leonardo da Vinci and Jesus Christ in Aaranu Njan  (2017). The 45 characters are recognized as the most for any actor in a single film by the Guinness Book of World Records.   and there are countless other examples.

But now consider Jesus’s BOLD statements.  Did he admitted the TRUTH for US.

“My Kingdom is not of this world!”.  The Kingdom he refers to is the Spiritual Kingdom { Father, Son, and Holy Spirit }.     I am “The Christ”, the Son of the Living God.  

  • “I am the Alpha and the Omega”  the Beginning and the End. 

    I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.


  • “If they tell you that ‘Christ’  is out there, or over here, do not believe them”.     The Kingdom is within you.    When you make the outside like the inside and the inside like the outside, and the male like the female……then you will see the Kingdom before you”.   

So is a part of “The Christ Mind”  actually the dreamer, being author, producer, and director of the imaginary milieu, charged by theology,  an unreal and insane projection of  specialness and separation unto death.   The “I don’t do this to myself,  I’m always the victim” movie.   An EGOIC cinematograph, or projected dream of guilt,  fear, attack and defend, where our ego JUDGENENTS interact to determine  who and what we are.   OUR Nightmare !

Buddha selfEven in Buddhism they realize there’s an underlying self – but they attempt to only reduce the suffering to a more peaceful life.  Here’s a good YouTube video on this subject, “The Buddha on Self and Non-Self” .

IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE,  and even more difficult to accept, that “I” am doing this to MYSELF.    And from ACIM – Workbook – 3. What Is the World?

Jesus said FORGIVENESS is the key.  Do not bind on earth or so it will be in heaven.  Leave judgement to the Holy Spirit.

This is similar,  but still is based on sin.  Who Is Really Being Saved? (Its Not Who You Think) 

A lot to consider. !!!!

Heiser’s commentary on Genesis

Sawadee Khrap

Listen to Michael Heiser – From Chaos to Restoration (Part 1) and then  Dr. Michael Heiser’s interpretation for the ‘Elohim and the Divine Consul’  – Great analysis,  but as he said, it is an attempt to understand Genesis in the Judaic interpretation of the writers.   There are other religious scriptural or oral teachings, such as The Epics of Gilgamesh’,  The Heavens or Sky,  ‘Tian’ in Chinese theology, Brahma and Maya in the Hindu myths and many other ancient people’s mythos that speak of similar events, each having their own uniquely special Gods or Deity, reigning over lesser gods and human beings, specific to their own culture and language perspectives. 

HOWEVER, Jesus, is my Redeemer and Master,  and it is from His teaching that I approach theology for any understanding of God’s reality.   The first thing I noticed about his teachings was that they and he directly confronted the accepted Judean Religious leaders,  at that time,  on their understanding of their own Scriptures.   Jesus never placed emphasis on this world, indeed he proclaimed his Kingdom was NOT of this world and ‘what would it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?’.   Jesus’s preeminence was in a NON_DUALISTIC view of the creation myth. “ I and the Father are ONE and so are those who believe in me”.    A Spiritual existence where Completion,  Love, Eternity, Elohim  abide.     Those who do not believe in his teachings,  view a DUALISTIC imaginary perspective of a shadowy veiled world, where separation, bodies, time and space, guilt, fear, death and their judgements [ego] rule supreme.   This is NOT the world God Created COMPLETE, and pronounced it GOOD.

A Dualistic perspective, that even modern Christianly still adheres to, is from Genesis 2 for the balance of the Bible.  This myth of the fall, is from a sin or separation  mentality.   It is simply the story of the ‘characters’,  of the dream of separation,  trying to justify themselves and this world view as reality.    Yet even here Paul the Apostle states:  “It is the Spirit that wars against God”.    Remember, “But the serpent said to the woman, ‘You will not die; for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God,  knowing good and evil.’”     In other words , have the power of judgement.   If we accept this dualistic viewpoint as our reality then we become our own accusers, jailors, and prisoners.  Rejoice !,   As Jesus said ; “I didn’t come to condemn the world but to save it”,  –  He did not come to take it from us,  if we consider it valuable, but only to be the LIGHT of TRUTH and dispel the darkness.

BUT, the strongest statement He made about this was recorded in John 11:25

 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.  Believest thou this?”

Place your studies, and faith,  in the teachings of  Jesus  that tell us about  Our place in God’s Kingdom and how to achieve it, studying the error will not bring you PEACE.

Are you a split ‘ter’ ? – not spit ’ter’

Sawadee Khrap

splitterWas I shocked when I first glanced at the above question.   Of course,  my carnal mind immediately picked up the latter spelling.  As St. Paul said:

“For I delight in the law of God according to 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 will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!”.   (Romans 7:22)

But seriously, please forgive my bar room humor, my first thoughts are always egoic and concern the body.   After all,  this is the world of bodies and the lie or dream of separation.  It is only through faith,  in Christ’s Vision,  that will save me from this Illusion. 

The above video by Dr. Michael Heiser, speaks about the “last days”  from his dualistic theological point of view.  As he states “my theology is driving my interpretation of the Bible.”.  However, I see it differently,  from a Non-Dualistic understanding or starting point of Genesis 1.   The tiny mad idea,  that a part of God,  { The “I AM” } , can think of itself as special and above the all,  IS AN ILLUSION or dream, NOT real and does not exist..  How insane can this be that a  ‘part’  thinks it has the power of judgement and from this determine its own special creation ?.   Calling it demons, or fallen angles, doesn’t make it real.

Rest in God . Look, Listen, and Do Not Judge. and allow the Holy Spirit to judge all things for me   And YES, the man of lawlessness is my or OUR bad judgments,  the liar or accuser in the Bible.   When we all see through the “Vision of Christ” and experience the world as God created it, as proclaimed  “COMPLETED and GOOD” , THEN God can awaken US from this dream of separation and take US  into Himself.    The FINAL victory over death or Judgements is  The “Second Coming of Christ.”.    Indeed !, “the last enemy to be destroyed is death”

Here’s another YouTube video worth watching –  Peter Panagore’s NDE and Why He Regretted Coming Back    What a excellent expression of what he saw or experienced.   The EXPERIENCE is what matters, whether it’s from NDE, Meditation, Revelation or Prayer – it is the EXPERIENCE that counts and teaches us who we really are.

Wow, This is revealing !!!!

Sawadee Khrap

Here’s a great video on how we see.   Isn’t it surprising and  alarming that we use these senses to determine what OUR world is,  and hold fast onto to it as reality.

attention test

Almost all Religions teach that God and humans are separate beings.   The statements “I and the Father ARE ONE, as so are you”, and “The only way to the Father is through the Son.”, are expressions by Jesus from a perspective of INCLUSION,  not separation.   These are statements of the  TRUTH or NON-DUALITY of the Godhead, as openly expressed in the Scriptures,  but glossed over or ignored in Modern Christian Theology.

NON_DUALITY vrs. DUALITY of God’s  REALITY.   Is ‘monotheism” correct?    The world is awaking up to the truth.  Here are some examples of the works of Dr. Michael Heiser  on this subject.  Although he still views reality through a dualistic world perspective, as the ancient Hebrews did,  listen closely and think about Non-dualism as a realistic alternative.

  1. Divine Council
  2. Our Terminology IS NOT Adequate to Describe the God of the Bible
  3. The hidden Psalms, Psalms 91, and Strange Things in the Bible
  4. How Psalm 82 and John 10 Point to Jesus as the DESTROYER of Gods
  5. What or WHO is AZAZEL?
  6. The TRUTH about SATAN in Job!

Note: There can always be controversy in theologies    Michael Heiser Doesn’t Have the 82nd Psalm Right

The way to PEACE is to STOP the war!   Watching the latest TV News programs, one only hears that the world is going to hell,  doomsday proclaimed in every broadcast, natural disasters abound,  every day more deadly virus attacks,  religionist preachers screaming “prepare the end is near.”.   A rainy day is good or bad according to what I ask it to be – it is my JUDGEMENT, and I see what I have ask for.

Our JUDGEMENTS are the determinates of our world.  We use faulty indicators, called our senses,  to decide what we will consider good or bad, friend or foe, and all according to our egotistic perspective.    As Jesus said, “What you bind on earth will be bond in Heaven”, judge for hell and that is what you will see, and yet look through Christ’s eyes  and see a forgiven world, bright and shining as God CREATED it.   Also see ACIM  C21-11. The Responsibility for Sight

The WAR is PERCEPTION,  how do I,  or we , see the world,  so how do I find peace – Only in my mind !! .    Do not try to change the world but seek to change my mind about the world.   If I look for SIN that is all I will see, because I will overlook it’s opposite – Peace or Love itself.   But if I look through Christ’s vision I will see only LOVE and what I considered sin nothing more that a mistake that needs to be forgotten or forgiven.   “Forgive them Father, they know not what they do.”

Look, Listen and Do Not Judge.   Look through Christ’s Vision and see a world awaking to the Love of God.  It is happening everywhere,  if we but look for it.   God is doing His part, mine and yours is only to be WILLING to let it happen and NOT to bind the world with our one-sided egotistical judgements. 

“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ”   (Philippians 4:7)

ACIM and “The Law of One” insights for the movie “Soul”

Sawadee Khrap

Here are my thoughts on Aaron’s perspective of “The Law of One” and my understanding of the “A Course In Miracles” theology as he observed in the movie “Soul”.    Since I haven’t read or seen either, the “Law” or the movie,  I will address my comments based on Aaron’s interpretation in his review.. (see my earlier post – “Disney’s Soul movie review”)

The “Miracle” I see is the EXPERIENCE he had by watching the film.  I noted the same feeling in his dialog with Damian in his video “Can We Lose The Ones We Love? // MasterClass Q&A “ which I posted before.  I had the same feeling while watching  “The Matrix” and “Avatar”.  These EXPERIENCES of wonderment and feeling of ONENESS or God’s Presence are the only valid response needed for Atonement. 

Although he mentions ACIM, the “Course” does not specifically address ideas of karma, past lives, reincarnation, astral travel, , and so on.    Nevertheless,  these concepts do seem to help develop a great Hollywood movie theme.    But, as stated in ACIM’s  : Clarification of Terms –Intro :

“This is not a course in philosophical speculation, nor is it concerned with precise terminology. It is concerned only with Atonement, or the correction of perception. The means of the Atonement is forgiveness. The structure of “individual consciousness” is essentially irrelevant because it is a concept representing the “original error” or the “original sin.”   To study the error itself does not lead to correction, if you are indeed to succeed in overlooking the error. And it is just this process of overlooking at which the course aims.

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.

This course remains within the ego framework, where it is needed. It is not concerned with what is beyond all error because it is planned only to set the direction towards it. Therefore it uses words, which are symbolic, and cannot express what lies beyond symbols. It is merely the ego that questions because it is only the ego that doubts.”

I checked the cost for the Disney Channel for a year, about $70.   Far too expensive for me to see one movie – I guess I’ll wait till the YouTube version.     Please comment and post any movie you think inspired you.

Disney’s “Soul” movie review

Sawadee Khrap

soulHere’s a review by AAron Abke on Disney’s new movie “Soul” and his take from his spiritual perspective..

Great review and some wonderful insight into the mature of Life.

Although I do differ in my understanding of what the “Truth of Salvation” and what this world is,  this review has much to consider.  A great starting point on the discussion and exploration of Spirituality.  My major difference is that I believe his teachings, like many Religions,  still try to combine and justify duality with non-duality.concepts and I will try to post a more detailed explanation of what I mean by that in the near future.   I would also love to hear your comments too.

Our versus My or I

Sawadee Khrap

Yesterday I watched a YouTube video on Jewish Aramaic version of “The Lord’s Prayer” and this is what came to mind in my meditation for today. What caught my attention was the fact that Jesus only asked in an “inclusive” or “One” perspective (see red emphasis below)

Our Father,
Who is in Heaven, Sanctify your Name.
May Your Kingdom come, may Your Will be done.
Just as it is in Heaven, so also upon the earth.

Our
bread, which is from the earth, give us day by day.
And forgive us our sins, just as we should forgive our debtors.
And do not bring us to trial, rather deliver us from the accuser.”

Jesus did not tell us to ask, or pray, specifically for ourselves , but for the ”ALL”, which emphases plurality of the Son or “Christ”.  Throughout his ministry, he repeatedly stated that he was ‘ONE’ with God and we are ‘ONE’ with him – WE are still as God created US. This is true ‘REALITY’, but in the above teaching, he was speaking in the language of that day and to those who believe the ‘lie’ of the “accuser” , that we are in separate bodies living on the earth.   It addresses both “Creation” by Elohim and “making” by Yahweh, Spirit and bodies respectively.   The statement “Just as it is in Heaven, so also upon the earth.” brings truth to the illusion. “Forgive them Father, they know not what they do”, asks please deliver US from the liar of separation, the lie of the accuser.

“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”    (ACIM C29 – IX. The Forgiving Dream)

“Where sin once was perceived will rise a world that will become an altar to the truth, and you will join the lights of Heaven there, and sing their song of gratitude and praise. And as they come to you to be complete, so will you go with them. For no one hears the song of Heaven and remains without a voice that adds its power to the song, and makes it sweeter still. And each one joins the singing at the altar that was raised within the tiny spot that sin proclaimed to be its own. And what was tiny then has soared into a magnitude of song in which the universe has joined with but a single voice.”   (ACIM C26– IV. Where Sin Has Left)

“What fear has hidden, still is part of you. Joining the Atonement is the way out of fear. The Holy Spirit will help you reinterpret everything that you perceive as fearful, and teach you that only what is loving is true. Truth is beyond your ability to destroy, but entirely within your ability to accept. It belongs to you because, as an extension of God, you created it with Him. It is yours because it is part of you, just as you are part of God because He created you.”    (ACIM C5-IV. Teaching and Healing)

I need always remember that, AA, A Course In Miracles, the teachings of Buddha, and Jesus’s Gospel or Good News, as well as other guides, were there when I was ready and could accept them, not by my planning or design.   I did not determine salvation’s path or guides,  but it was designed by God Himself.   They were there for me,  when I was ready to accept the truth, and all I can or should do now is WAIT – Look, Listen, And Do Not Judge – but leave all judgments up to the ‘ONE’ appointed for my awaking and salvation – God’s Holy Spirit. .

Nevertheless,  forgiving and seeking forgiveness, as stated in the above prayer, would be the best starting point for reducing the suffering in the world, that I am responsible for, and would be a great giant leap forward.

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.

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.
