“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.

Clear lesson from the Holy Spirit ! — Attack Thoughts

Sawadee Khrap

This morning I got a clear message from the Holy Spirit.  My reading for the day, as suggested by the ACIM Now Oracle, located in “Read Now” dropdown ,  was Workbook Lesson 26  “My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.” 

“Because your attack thoughts will be projected, you will fear attack.  And if you fear attack, you must believe that you are not invulnerable.  Attack thoughts therefore make you vulnerable in your own mind, which is where the attack thoughts are.  Attack thoughts and invulnerability cannot be accepted together.  They contradict each other.”

and after contemplating on the lesson,  I followed it up with my normal YouTube search for new videos and was presented with attack  7 Truths To Lower Blood Pressure With Breathing Exercises (Holistic Doctor Explains) // Dr Ekberg  .  This reinforces the same lesson – NOTE in the video the Doctor’s statements:

  • abnormal stress is caused by unwanted thoughts.
  • Breathing control can re-focus the mind

This amounts to nothing less than developing a habit formed   “Meditative” practice.   Prayer is meditation and contemplation,  and many other  resources, such as a definite exercise routine or “Yoga” can also be helpful. 

When I ask for help – it is always there if I but look, Listen and Do Not Judge…..

Non-Duality in Religions ????

Sawadee Khrap

This is a “Must Listen To”  talk or podcast for AwakeningawakeingThe universal problem of changing one’s mind about duality to a Non-Duality perspective.  Stop the “Fire and Brimstone”  punitive and restrictive perspective without hurt feelings.  Two different world views. 

The Holy Spirit is truly working in the world – this is an excellent example of how to “do not try to change the world but change our minds about the world.”

The question that always has to be addressed is “WHO is the YOU ?,  you are talking about.  The Dreamer or the Character in this dream world.  How to see Christ in everyone.

Easter Blessings

Sawadee Khrap

HE HAS RISEN – REJOICE,  I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD..

Just listened to a GREAT Easter Morning sermon from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.   eastrListening to this Conference it’s apparent that they are serving Christ on the path appointed for them.  As Jesus said, “My Father’s Mansion has many rooms and I go to make a place for you.”   The TRUTH is the same , perhaps the Theos is different ,,but that is only of this world.  The ATTONMENT is the same – lets remove the obstacles to LOVE.   And allow each to testify of their own witnessing.   It is their EXPERIENCE that counts,  not their theology.

Dominion War and The Great LINK

Sawadee Khrap

My waking thought this morning was what would it be like to be “ONE with GOD”.  The best example I could think of is was in the Deep Space 9 series of Star Trek  ,  an American science fiction television series created by Rick Berman and Michael Piller. It originally aired from January 1993 to June 1999, in syndication, spanning 176 episodes over seven seasons.

In  Season 3, Episode 2, “The Search , part 2odo where “Odo”  finds what it is like to be a “Changeling” as they really exist.   Check this YouTube video clip  “Dominion War and the Great Link.       Amazing , even the  “Changelings” as the Founders of the Dominion and their control of the  “Vorta” and “Jem’hadar”  express the desire to be separate and special from the “One”.  

Another twist on the Prodigal Son story.. OUR story , where the desire to Judge and Control creates a world of Form and bodies.  There is NO EGO in the Lake of God, just in the imagined separated world.

Excellent critique of Christian Religions

Sawadee Khrap

Here’s another great video by Richard Rohr – We Create our Destiny.   My YouTube searches in Google are bringing me some very interesting videos and by destinygreat speakers and thinkers.    Please excuse the posting of so many of his works but this one is right on the mark – The Holy Spirit is working and the world IS changing even thought it doesn’t appear that way on the TV news.   The TRUTH is the truth whoever says it or it was never the truth.  Notice how he includes other religious view points  –  few Christians do.  I love the emphasis on “Do Not Judge.”   He doesn’t mention ACIM but his basic Theos is the same.
