    The One Truth

    Saturday, January 7, 2012, 1:12 AM [General]

    The One truth is there is only 'One'. This god is called to with a 1000 different names. Each religion represents a single path to the understanding of this One God. Each individual, within and without each religion will have their personal interpretations as to what is correct and what is not. If you put a 100 individuals in a room with the same set of teachings -- a day later you would have 100 different interpretations as to what was taught. From the 'One' came the many -- but the many are still all contained within the 'One'.

    For 2012

    Thursday, January 5, 2012, 12:17 PM [General]

    Fear mongering rules our world today.

    Fear of this and that is all we hear.

    Negative thoughts fill the air.

    Control the thoughts – Control the people.

    Positive solutions are seldom offered.

    More rules and regulations motivated by fear.

    Few look to take care of the root causes.

    Anger, greed, and lack of trust rule the day.

    Where are the positive thinking people today?

    Where are the solutions based on logic and reason?

    We need to return to a balance to achieve harmony.

    We need solutions from loving and caring people.

    The wise keep silent in this world today.

    They become targets of the rulers and leaders.

    We need to leave this state of darkness.

    We need to be brave and take positive steps.

    Politics need to be put aside.

    We need to find harmony again with nature.

    We need to love and care for all humanity.

    It is time for the wise to step forward to serve.

    Teach the children

    Wednesday, January 4, 2012, 12:50 PM [General]

    Teach your children to love life in all its various forms.

    Teach that we are all brothers and sister sharing this journey called life.

    Teach them to understand that we are all interconnected and dependent on the whole of our family if we are to progress or enhance our world.

    To gain knowledge and wisdom should be the goal of every man and woman.

    To love the One and all our family should be taught in every home.

    We can learn to understand that we are One and that we are not alone. The human race is our family and this world is our home. Through love and understanding we can take our place and accept our responsibilities as children of the One.

    "Truth is One"

    Monday, January 2, 2012, 4:50 PM [General]

    "Truth is one".  We recognize eternal, universal truth because we find it in the very depths of our own being, in our heart.  

    "The only books worth our attention are those which spring from the heart and in turn speak to the heart."  'Heart can be understood as the very center of our psycho-physical being, as the meeting-place of soul and mind or, more precisely, as the focal point where the mind, which in itself is all knowledge or light, is reflected in the mirror of the soul.'  

    These  are statements from the forward to 'The Bezel's of Wisdom' of Ibn Al'Arabi.

      Any teaching that does not resonate within the heart must be questioned as to its source or authenticity.

    What is the right Spiritual Path?

    Friday, December 30, 2011, 5:54 PM [General]

    How can we know we are on the right spiritual path?

    A short answer, but one that many find unbelievable is that all paths are the right path because all are in God and lead to God.  The only question is when we will begin to follow a path.

    To some of us, a more acceptable answer might be: To love God and love our fellow man and then to do good works leads us on the right path.

    Some of us might say -- To do no harm to another, either physically, mentally, or spiritually is the right path.

    Some of us will say to follow a middle way; a way of balance is the right path.

    Some will say the way of peace, contentment, tolerance, love and virtuous living is the right path.

    To me, any path that leads a person to a better life and understanding and leads a person to be closer to God is the right path.

    I cannot tell you what the right path is for you.

    I can only ask that you begin where you are, with your own set of beliefs and ideals and in your own way to follow the path that you see before you.  As you take the first step and then the next -- your personal pathway will open before you.  We are all on a journey and learning in our own ways, but it is up to each of us as individuals to proceed or to stop;  to follow our own path or to be used as part of someone else’s path.  It is your journey but you must take the initiative to begin.

    There are many here who will help and guide you but you must begin where you are, when you are ready and in your own way.

    May your way be smooth, your life more loving and may God be with you.

    Last Words

    Friday, December 30, 2011, 4:29 PM [General]

    (The Last Words of Kohath)
    (4Q542 - The Dead Sea Scrolls)

    May you receive the blessing of the greatest of all gods forever, and may He shine his light upon you, and tell you His great name, so that you may truly know Him.  For He is the God of the Ages, and Lord of everything that is done, and Ruler of all people.

    May He give you happiness, and to your descendants joy, in the generations of truth forever.

    Be Holy and pure, holding firm to the Truth, walking in integrity and not with a divided heart, but with a pure heart, and with an honest and good spirit.

    Then you will have a good reputation and happiness will come, along with joy and praise because you have kept and passed on the inheritance that your ancestors left you:  Truth, Good deeds, Honesty, Perfection, Holiness, and the Knowledge that you are children of the Holy Spirit, the Living Father.

    Re: Love

    Sunday, December 25, 2011, 8:23 AM [General]

    The Great Holy War is to first find the balance and harmony of the heart and mind so that we can love ourselves and know who and what we truly are.  From this state we can extend our love to other people and all living things.  This is considered the lesser Holy War for to love others we must first love our-self.

    God's love is universal -- extended to all humanity and all created things.  To take our place as God's children -- we must develop and live from this state of Universal love.  It is written that to love God -- we must first love our-self and the human family.

    To win this war is to be truly alive -- to be love -- and to live as a lover without restriction or qualification.  This is to love as God does...

    Take Care

    Thursday, December 22, 2011, 8:31 PM [General]

    If a literal teaching is not true -- then all the attempts to explain it may also not be true.

    I agree with many of you that there is too many Bible passages that make no sense.. But care is needed to not throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    Every individual has the right to believe as they wish and to explore the possibilities and different meanings that can be found in all scriptures from every religion, world literature, and even science and philosophy, and the arts.

    Asking questions and seeking answers is the basis for learning and growth. Through these we attain greater knowledge and hopefully a little wisdom.

    If you meet a minister or teacher who does not let you ask questions or encourage you to seek the truth -- run -- they are not a true teacher or priest.
