WHAT LIES UNDER FEAR? Steve Beckow

What Lies Under Fear?

Fear-33 Written prior to Archangel Michael’s description of the tsunami of love on An Hour with an Angel, Jan. 9, 2014.  You may hear this show at:  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/inlight_radio/2014/01/10/an-hour-with-an-angel-with-archangel-michael

 

I often hear it said that what underlies anger, rage, hostility, etc., is fear. But what underlies fear?

Well, as far as I can see, attachment underlies fear. I’ll have to amend that statement later but let me look at it from a general standpoint for a minute.

Mostly what we fear is loss. We fear we’ll lose something we’re attached to – our spouse, our children, our house, our car, our job. We consider these things as basic to our wellbeing, happiness, and satisfaction and of course they’re not. That is one of the illusions of the old Third.

It isn’t that it’s bad and wrong to attach to these things. It’s just that it has consequences.

In the face of our illusions, we constrain ourselves not to act courageously lest we endanger, risk or lose what we attach ourselves to. We become passive and malleable. We fit in. We give way. We don’t stand up for what we know is right or good. We become part of the crowd, banding together for a security we never attain.

Seven Ways to Banish Fear

Fear is not something innate within us. It’s a temporary condition that stays as long as we allow it. Here are some suggested ways of banishing fear.

(1) Let go of the attachment. Whatever it is you’re attached to, reconcile yourself with the possibility of its loss and come to peace with that. Fear now has no place to cling to.

(2) Stamp your foot and tell fear to be gone. What we don’t realize about fear is that fear is afraid of us. Show it who’s boss. When we turn our face against fear, when we stamp our foot and say “No!” to fear, fear flees. It flies away. You can try it and see.

(3) Expand your chest as far as you can and feel the substantiality of your being: take courage from that. If you’re into karate, use your kiya to banish fear. Or growl at fear. It will go.

(4) Take a stand on something. State exactly where you’re at with it, whether you have to speak through your fear or not. Fear is not equal to your stand.

(5) Use Sanat Kumara’s magic phrase. Sanat told a friend in a reading that he was going to give her a magic incantation that would banish fear. What was it? “Shoooo!”  And it works.

(6) Give your fear away to the celestials or ascended masters. That is working more and more these days.

(7) Love your fear. Love the frightened child within you. Offer to let Big Betty take care of Little Betty. Take fear under your wing.

Attachments that Don’t Bind

“We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Yes, because in the higher dimensions we can create what we want and nothing need ever be lost.  Moreover, we have no attachments in the higher dimension – well, no attachments of a certain kind. And that’s where I must make my amendment, my caveat.

There’s nothing wrong, as far as I’m aware, with attaching yourself to the Divine or anything divine. No negative results ensue.

There’s only one degree of the compass that doesn’t lead to more karma and that’s the degree that points directly to God. There’s only one thing we can desire without violating the law of our nature and that’s God and all things godly. (OK, two things.) Attachment to God, which we usually call devotion, does not harm. Attachment to the divine qualities doesn’t harm. Attachment to those who serve God, to the Divine Plan, to the love of all, etc., doesn’t harm or bind. In fact it liberates,

I’ve said that the basic spiritual movement is to turn from the world to God – to turn from material pleasures and pursuits to service of the Divine. That involves letting go of our attachment to the impermanent, the merely sensual, the baser impulses, etc., and embracing the permanent, the higher pursuits, the finer impulses, etc.

And when we do so, we find that all the divine qualities are solvents that dissolve fear. Fear cannot stand in the face of love and you see this every time a truly loving person confronts an angry or fearful person. They calm down in the face of love.

I’m not saying this is easy to do but, whether easy or hard, it works nonetheless.

 

THE FEAR FACTORY: THE MANUFACTURING OF A VIOLENT SOCIETY

THE FEAR FACTORY:  THE MANUFACTURING OF A VIOLENT SOCIETY

Linda Steiner, Ph.D. in Applied Social Psychology

Linda Steiner

“The violence agenda relies on our continued fear, ignorance and indifference. But the fate of our future relies on our conscious awareness.”

 Dr. Steiner wrote this excellent article after a day of listening to news reports and talk shows regarding the shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C.  As she states in her article:

“Perhaps the time has finally come for American citizens to start asking some critical questions.  For example, isn’t it an ironic coincidence (synchronicity) that the latest mass murder just happened to fall on the very same day that the Senate Hearing on repealing the Stand Your Ground law was scheduled to meet – and was subsequently cancelled as a result of the massacre?”

INTENSE ANXIETY IS A TRAP BECAUSE IT MUDDIES THE WATERS OF YOUR MIND

Intense anxiety is a trap because it muddies the waters of your mind

01/30/2013 by John Smallman

http://johnsmallman.wordpress.com/

When you are relaxed it is quite easy for you to enter into a quiet and meditative state, but when you are anxious or disturbed and your mind is racing, it is considerably more difficult.  And that is when it would be most helpful if you could relax into that peace and stillness.  If you are over-stressed, driven by fear or anxiety, go to some place where you can be alone, without interruptions (turn off your phones!), and ask your guides, angels, ascended masters – whoever you are most comfortable calling on – for help.

Keep asking and asking and asking, because when you are very stressed your ego will be extremely persistent in filling your minds with worrying thoughts — thoughts that must be attended to now.  This is not the case.  If you are over-stressed you cannot think clearly, and to take action in this state of mind is inadvisable at best.  To quieten your ego mind, it can be most effective to keep repeating a short prayer or mantra until it stills, and this you can reprise should it start to race again.  Intense anxiety, which many on the earth plane frequently experience, is a trap because it stirs up and muddies the waters of your minds, preventing clarity.  You know this because you have all experienced it, so it is essential that you establish a quiet place of peace within, to which you can withdraw to still those raging waters.

Many who meditate imagine themselves in a peaceful setting they have personally experienced, or they use an imaginary one from a story they have read and with which they feel comfortable.  It does not matter which you choose so long as it is a place with which you resonate and to which you can return in your mind’s eye whenever you choose to do so.  Your ego will likely interrupt your peace, by trying to block or disturb that peaceful, visionary place in your mind, by telling you that you are wasting precious time — time that could effectively be used to solve the problem(s) that are causing your state of anxiety.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  Sitting quietly, peacefully, with your racing mind stilled allows your intuition to come into your awareness.  That alone greatly reduces the stress that you are experiencing.  And when the mind is stilled your guides can connect with you through your intuition, offering the guidance that is most appropriate in that moment – it could well be  “Do nothing right now.  You are not ready to make a decision.  The situation is not as urgent as it appears.”

If this is the guidance, the intuitive sense, the feeling that you get, then honor it. You are all aware of the damage that can be done when you act in haste. Obviously we are not talking here about any high-speed activities in which you may be engaged, where well-trained reactions that have been carefully rehearsed have to be put into effect instantaneously.  When you are feeling stressed you often feel the need to do something now, and apart from the situations just referred to, that is generally not a good idea.  If you have not already created a place within to which you can withdraw when your stress levels become excessive, then please do so.  You need and deserve an interior place of seclusion and peace, and it is well worth spending time creating one for yourselves, one that really appeals to your senses and entices you inwards.

Having created this space, use it daily.  It will help you re-energize the flame of divine Love that burns constantly within you.  Fires need air so you need to create a draft for them: the flame of Love within you simply needs your attention, your acknowledgment, so use these to fan your flame and it will blaze up enthusiastically, warming your hearts and strengthening your faith that you are the divine and beloved children of God, forever in His thoughts.

You need the nourishment that your daily visits to your inner space provide.  If you neglect or forget to go there regularly you will find your stress levels rising, also your doubts and frustrations.  When you find yourselves becoming short-tempered, irritable, exhausted, it is a sure sign that you need to withdraw and restore your vitality, your life energy, and re-arouse the flame of Love that burns constantly within you.  It wants to work with you but can only do so when you allow It to — by opening your hearts in acceptance of the now-moment in whatever form it presents itself.

There is only Love.  Anything else is a distraction, an illusory temptation to engage egotistically with the world around you.  Yes, you are in the world, but you are not of it, so to engage only lovingly will fortify that awareness, shining your Light brightly in the dark places in which you may find yourselves, and bringing solace to those around you.  This is your task, your reason for this earthly incarnation, and with the constant intensifying of the divine energy field enveloping the Earth, you have an abundance of Light and Love to share in every situation, in every relationship, in every moment.

You are Love incarnate; do not attempt to dissuade yourselves of this truth. Many of you judge yourselves as too unworthy to even consider that this might be true, but that is just your egos trying to undermine your faith and your knowing by offering you a false sense of humility in which to wrap your doubts. Don’t be fooled; your ego has no wisdom.  It employs faulty reasoning to divert you from your path and to persuade you that you are not good enough.  Yes, you have all engaged in unloving behavior, but it is the behavior that is not good enough, not you, and you can change your behavior.

The field of divine Love is infiltrating the hearts of all on the planet, arousing awareness of unloving attitudes and behaviors, and of the damage that they cause, and encouraging people to release all that is not in alignment with it.  For the most part their responses are positive because they are becoming increasingly aware of the rightness of aligning with Love, and their will to do so is growing ever stronger. These are indeed incredible and wonderful times to be on Earth.  Look for the beauty and wonder in every moment, and amaze and delight yourselves as you all chose to be here to participate in humanity’s awakening.

With so very much love, Saul.

DREDGING UP THE FEARS IN PREPARATION FOR ASCENSION

DREDGING UP THE FEARS

IN

PREPARATION FOR ASCENSION

Anonymous

 Digging

 NOTE BY NANCY:  A gay minister friend of mine is sharing his journal with a prayer that his experiences will be of assistance to others as we all prepare for Ascension.  One way in which he is preparing is by having a past-life regression.

DECEMBER 1, 2012

 As I prepare for my past-life regression on Monday, I have become keenly aware over the past weeks/months that FEAR is the #1 issue that confronts my life, as is probably the case with 100% of all other humans.  My earliest recollections of this present life all involve being taught to fear—not love.  Oh, love may have been sprinkled in there like a sparsely used pinch of salt, but it was never enough to flavor the heaping portion of fear.

As a child, some of the amazingly weird things I was taught to fear were pickles (they cause mouth ulcers!), watermelon seeds (if swallowed they would grow a watermelon inside me!), milk (too much mucus that impedes breathing) and lastly, spinach, cranberries (carcinogenic) and tomatoes which rot the stomach!

Hmmmmmmm?… could this be WHY, at age 25 I developed an eating disorder known as bulimia?????…. Me thinks so!

Why did I migrate towards Fundamentalism???  It gives clear answers that are black and white!  My emerging sexuality at the age of 15 was fear-producing!  It should not have been, but with no guidance, intelligent support, etc. I fell into fear.

Christianity offered “escape from fear”… really????  No. it actually got worse as my natural proclivities were further scrutinized by myself and other “teachers of the Law” that lead me to an exorcism of homosexual demons in 1983! (I joke now saying that the demons were all lavender-colored that “flounced” out of me fingering their feathered boas with a huff!)

Interestingly enough, that exorcism only served to drive the fear deeper and deeper as I was taught to “bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” So, every time I thought anything about my nature given to me by God, it was The Devil trying to win my soul to himself, and I would have to yell and quote scripture at the top of my lungs, reminded that that is how Jesus defeated him in the Wilderness!

Guess what?  It never worked!  Something must be wrong with me … my faith? … the way I said it? … did I really mean it? … etc ….  And so the fear cycle continued.

In 1975, I attended a Bill Gothard Seminar at Capitol Center.  Gothard probably instilled the worst fear of all in my young Christian Soul when he said that God has an “umbrella of protection,” and if we step out from underneath God’s Umbrella, then we were opening ourselves to every sort of “evil” and “demonic attack.”

Well, according to Gothard, I have been way away from God’s Parasol for years, and yet I have never felt more inspired, more spiritually alert and more changed from “glory to glory” than I do today.

Also, in August of 1975 I sang in a Jack Van Impe Crusade.  In that crusade, Van Impe predicted that Jesus would return on September 6 of that year.  Now, I was to return for my second year of Bible College seven days before the 6th, knowing that my College’s policy was “no pay, no stay.”  How shocked and disappointed I was when I had to ante up.

Where did I go wrong?  The fear of using my own intuition became further incapacitated by the fear cycle.

With my past-life regression coming up, one thing about which I am certain is that despite all of the fear that I have encountered on this plane of existence, there has continually been that Hand Guiding that has never moved from me one iota. What some would have written off as “Jeff’s Descent into the Netherworld of Darkness” has been anything but!

Has it been pleasant?  OMG NO!… interesting and enlightening?…OMG YES!

Fast forward to today: and I still deal with the fears that have deeply rooted themselves.  As recently as September, when my ears did not heal, I threw myself into the familiar fear cycle of … “did you meditate correctly?” … “did I use the rays correctly?” …  did I really hear the angels correctly?…. and so on.  This needs to stop… and it HAS!!!

I have arrived to this day and time (December, 2012) with a heart that has ALWAYS wanted nothing but the best and highest.  I know that.  As the Ascension sallies forth, I find myself again immersed in an unnecessary fear cycle of “will I really ascend?” etc.  I am simply trusting that everything is moving me correctly and judiciously towards that Perfect Day just as IT always has even in the midst of all my doubts and fears.

I am still aware that despite everything that I have learned and continue to learn, that I STILL “Know in part and prophesy in part.”  There simply has to be a part of me that says “I will not know until it actually happens; but I will never be separated from  The Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go.”

LATER ON DECEMBER 1, 2012

 I used to journal in my “Christian” days.  Much of what I wrote back then was not honest…. and ya know?… I knew THAT!

I was too “fearful” to truly express what my heart told me was true.  Instead of seeing everything from my past as wasted, I now see it through the lens of “What did I learn from that experience?”

This little phrase has turned every “known-to-me” *negative* experience into a “positive” that resonates with “THIS IS the Loving Hand that guides!”

Not one thing that has happened to me in this present life is a mistake.  I now know that for whatever reason, all of these things have happened as a necessity to fulfill a pre-ordained contract THAT I MADE!!! Now, do I always want to acknowledge that?  NO… resoundingly said!… BUT, I know that I know that I know that for my life to have been anything but what has happened would not have been MY LIFE!

One of the most damaging aspects of Christianity was the notion that I am responsible for other people’s souls.  No I am not.  I am ONLY responsible for sharing what I know to be The Truth.  I cannot convert anyone.  All people have a free will and a contract that they need to fulfill, and I do not know what that contract is.

Now that I know that the soul reincarnates, just as Jesus did, I look at everything about a person’s “walk” differently than I did before I knew this truth. I only know that they are God just as I am God.  That has, and still continues to be, the most amazing thing that I have learned since August; every person has the Light; they just don’t know it!

The mere fact that everyone will come to the realization that they and the entire creation are One still continues to confound, amaze, astonish, and befuddle me.  Now I truly can say, “All things work together for good for those who love God and are called accordingly to that purpose.”

Do I *understand* this?  Not by any means with my human mind.  I ONLY know that it is true because my spirit bears witness with the spirit of God that it is so!  I often muse that MY spirit NEVER bore witness to much of what Christianity taught, but my mental self did out of pure fear of “what really IS The Truth?” Wow…. God is soooooo much bigger than ANYTHING that mere Christianity has ever taught me.  In fact, I now know that NO ONE, not ANY “religion” upon this planet, even those that have taught principles of “Higher-Self”, “Higher Consciousness,” whatever IT is called, is the complete truth!

I am convinced that we truly DO “see through a glass darkly,” and that I will be totally shocked and surprised, but still enveloped in The Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go when ALL (and even if then I still don’t get every last bit of it!) is revealed.

Fear has always said “Jeff, are you doing everything to comprehend and apprehend the Love that comprehended and apprehended you?????”  Guilt, guilt, guilt!!!  How COULD I have???  I am STILL in a limited body!

I believe that because the Ascension vibrations are so in motion right now, it actually perpetuates the anticipation.  I am trying to take as many deep breaths as possible and simply say “Thy Will be done IN and ON Earth as it IS, and always shall be, done in Heaven!”

I always loved the words to the hymn “I stand amazed in The Presence.”  I ask that I never cease to be amazed at what I secretly THOUGHT ALL ALONG was the Truth.

“But then we shall see face-to-face, and know as we are known!!!”

What does that mean????????  I have NO CLUE!!!!!

That’s what makes all of this so much fun!

THE UNFATHOMABLE IS ABOUT TO UNFOLD! ALL FEAR MUST BE RELEASED!

THE UNFATHOMABLE IS ABOUT TO UNFOLD!

ALL FEAR MUST BE RELEASED!

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

 

You and I are presently spinning around on one of the billions of planets in our Milky Way Galaxy.  Gaia—the Soul of the Great Being whose physical body is Earth—graciously agreed eons ago to be a prison planet within our galaxy.  Earth humans have been too violent to be permitted the freedom to move around our solar system and galaxy.  We have been quarantined and denied knowledge of our galactic brothers and sisters.  Naively, we have believed Earth humans to be the only intelligent beings in the magnificent cosmos in which we live.  We rejoiced over the first human landing on the Moon, while in reality our galactic brothers and sisters were speeding effortlessly hither and yon from one planet to another.

galaxy

[i]

There is no ignorance as deeply entrenched as the ignorance that possesses no idea how much it does not know.  We have continued in our violent ways even in the face of mountains of evidence that violence begets violence … while deep within all we want is peace.

Our sacred texts and music uses metaphors of violence.  The Source of our Being is personified as a God who is angry, vengeful, participates in battle, and requires blood sacrifices as a means of appeasement.  Earth humans have developed religions centered on this violent God.  We created a codified set of beliefs and dare anyone to differ from them.  Some form of violence remains the punishment for heretical thought.

Curiously, Earth humans can be loving beings.  We accept the fact that we can exhibit love while appearing not to question the violent God we continue to propagate.  Even more curious is that we call God a loving God while, in the same moment, teaching His violent ways of dealing with humanity.

For thousands of years, creation of fear has been the acceptable method for maintaining control over humanity.  It is used by every facet of our planetary society—bar none.  Religions have done such a thorough job of creating fear of burning in hell that even those who have never participated in a religious ceremony are not free from the subliminal energetic messages floating within the environment in which we live.  Political rulers, enamored with their power and seduced by greed, create fear in the people via numerous demonstrations of their capacity to demand taxes, control employment opportunities, deny healthcare … on and on ad infinitum.  Economic systems create fear by enforcing numerous penalties, seizing homes, repossessing items.  No mercy is shown when an individual comes upon hard times.  Education systems create fear by requiring robotic learning, then inflicting a grading system carrying a possible penalty of failure to graduate.

Humanity has never experienced life free of fear. 

Now, with only a few weeks before Gaia’s ascension in December 2012, this fact becomes extremely important.  Gaia has invited all of her inhabitants to ascend with her to the 5th dimensional plane of Unconditional Love, Peace, and Abundance.  Sadly, humanity has been so saturated with fear, lies, and false teachings that many continue—at this late date—to cling to old beliefs, to justify the fear tactics as that’s life, and to close their minds to anything with the slightest hint of New Age.  This refusal to wake up and to seek Truth, to give up the old, crumbling belief systems means many remain unaware of the vicious role fear plays in their lives.

Why does this state of affairs matter?

The prerequisite for ascending to the 5th dimension is the transmutation of all fear within our energy fields into a positive energy, such as love.  Although many fears manifest in obvious ways—like a fear of heights or of water; other fears can be extremely subtle in their covert influences on our lives.  It is these hidden fears about which we need to be concerned. 

In the counseling profession, we call many of these fears broken records that play repeatedly in our subconscious mind.  I’ll share an example from my own life.  In 1995, I embarked once more on establishing my own private practice.  Finances were scarce.  One day, while sitting at my computer, my broken record played loud enough for me to consciously hear it:  “If I had plenty of money, I would not complete this life’s mission.”

Startled, I went into meditation and asked for understanding.  I was shown a lifetime in ancient Egypt when I had been a wealthy woman.  Instead of using my wealth wisely, I chose to play and forgot about my Soul mission.[ii]  Thousands of years later, this soul memory was impacting me like a broken record, playing over and over in my subconscious mind.

In this present incarnation, I have always felt a strong sense of mission—a drive to accomplish what I incarnated to do.  As a result of viewing this Egyptian lifetime, I realized that I was afraid to be successful.  My subconscious mind was repeatedly telling me that if I earned an abundance of money, I would once more forget about my Soul mission.  Becoming conscious of that fear allowed me to release it

The most important insight here is that my soul memory waited thousands of years to impact a physical incarnation because I am now spiritually mature enough to recognize it as the broken record it is and to release the hold it had over me.  Now, money is not a “motivator” for me to work, but 3rd dimensional life requires that we pay the bills.  I will complete my Soul mission for this lifetime whether or not money is present in abundance.  My broken record could show up in this incarnation because I could now be objective about money and no longer allow this soul memory to impact adversely my life.

We are never allowed to take on a soul lesson until we are spiritually mature enough to deal with it successfully.  Our spiritual guides supervise the planning of our Soul contract for each incarnation and make sure that we have developed the skills needed to be successful.

 **************************

 There may be broken records impacting your life, manifesting as fear.  Are there areas in your life in which you appear to be blocked? … Where you limit yourself?

Are you afraid to really get to know yourself? …To be yourself?

Whatever the blockage you feel, you may rest assured that you are now spiritually mature enough to simply recognize your broken record and release it.  

It is essential that you be honest with yourself.  There is no longer time to repress your broken record for a while longer … no longer time to go into denial about it.  There is only time enough to make an honest evaluation of yourself and to release all that is of a fearful nature.

WAYS IN WHICH RELGION HAS BEEN USED TO ENSLAVE HUMANITY

PREPARATION FOR ASCENSION – KNOWING TRUTH!

 

WAYS IN WHICH RELIGION HAS BEEN USED TO ENSLAVE HUMANITY

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

  Jesus - crowd

 “When a large number of people had gathered together so that they trod on one another, Jesus began to say to his disciples first of all, ‘Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.  For there is nothing that is covered that will not be uncovered; and hidden that will not be known.’” [i] 

 PHARISEES:

The “Greek from Hebrew” word translated Pharisee means separatists, literalist.  Pharisees were one of Jewish sects during the time of Jesus that were opposed to him.  Metaphysically, Pharisee represents the individual consciousness that binds humanity to external forms of religion.  The Pharisee does not “know that Truth comes into expression in the consciousness through understanding; [he] seeks a sign in the external realm.  No sign of the presence of Christ can be given to the pharisaical state of mind, for the things of Spirit are spiritually discerned. (Mark 8:11,12)” [ii]

The Pharisees represent the religions of the world.  Although most religions possess a mystical branch,[iii] the bulk of humanity participates in religion by performing external rituals that have little or no in-depth meaning for them.  Obeying external religious rules does not lead to enhanced understanding of our spiritual nature.  In fact, it prevents people from recognizing their true nature as made in the image of Father/Mother God.  This lack of knowledge of who we really are has opened the door for the powerful to manipulate and enslave us.  We readily accept the biblical/religious teachings that we are “dust and to dust you shall return.”  [iv]

JESUS:

Metaphysically, Jesus represents God’s idea of a perfect man/woman—the Real Self of all humanity.[v]  Metaphysicians refer to this Real Self as the Christ Self, the Higher Self.  Jesus demonstrated through the major events of his life the pathway to ascension.[vi]   Each individual must travel this path for him/herself.  There is no magical way to suddenly possess the mind that was in Christ Jesus.  This mind requires the type of self-discipline described in my article entitled “Ascension.” [vii]

******Jesus, as the Divine Idea of the perfect man/woman, is not limited to the Christian religion. [viii]  Instead, this Divine Idea is the goal toward which all of humanity is to aim.  Every human being is divine and will eventually ascend to the higher realms. 

 SEE [ix]

Religions have enslaved humanity by not allowing this knowledge of our true identities to be taught. 

 Jesus taught:  “The one who believes in me [in your own indwelling God or I AM PRESENCE] will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these.”  [x]  Jesus recognized all of humanity as his brothers and sisters.

 **********************

SACRED TEXTS:

All sacred books were written by individuals incarnated in a physical body and living on the 3rd dimensional plane of duality (represented by the Genesis story of the forbidden tree of knowledge of good and evil).  These sacred texts were written for a variety of reasons, yet each religion appears to accept its sacred texts as the infallible word of God.  The Bible, especially, has undergone many translations from Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin into the language of specific nations.  The exact equivalent of a word in one language may not exist in another language.  Therefore the translation can easily change the meaning of the text.

The Bible consists of a compilation of many books written by various, often unknown authors.  The books chosen to be included in the Bible were selected by a group of human beings who were far from spiritually advanced.[xi]  Instead, they were Pharisaical in nature.  The Bible is full of contradictions, some of which represent differences in theological perspective.  Still, with all of its human flaws, much hidden wisdom can be found therein.

ENSLAVEMENT:

Those who would enslave the people easily do so by teaching them that the surface, or literal, meaning of the translated  words is the correct meaning.  This results in myriad misinterpretations, which can be used to create fear within the people.   Some examples are:

I.  HellHumans can easily be enslaved by teaching them a God who created a place of eternal punishment, called Hell.  Actually, the Aramaic words translated as “hell” in English—gehenna dnoora—refers to the “Valley of Hinnom.”  During the 1st century C.E., Gehenna dnoora, was the garbage dump for Jerusalem.  Located outside the city, people brought their garbage to Genenna dnoora and burned it.  The Valley of Hinnom was also the place where the Judean king, Ahaz (735-715 B.C.E.) offered sacrifices to idols.  King Ahaz also sent his son to the flames as a human sacrifice to the gods.  As a result of these sacrifices, the valley Gui Hinnom became a Semitic term for hell. [xii]

A.  Enslavement via instilling a fear of death and possibly a penalty of eternity in hell =obedience to the church rules and doctrines/creeds.

B.  Fear of death allows people to be manipulated into all types of behavior, including wars.   The concept of Enemy becomes acceptable, resulting in racism, discrimination, hatred, and violence.

II.  Reincarnation – The word reincarnation is not found in the Bible.  Still, the concept is present and vividly evident for those who read with open minds and who refuse to allow the doctrines of the church to dictate what they can perceive in their reading.[xiii]

A.  Enslavement by withholding knowledge of reincarnation is another way to create fear of death. 

B.  Denied the truth of reincarnation, enslavement = Only one life to live.  With only one life to live, every facet of our lives on the 3rd dimensional plane of duality takes on far more significance than it deserves—only one chance to experience marriage, only one chance to have children, only one chance to fulfill our dreams, on and on………

C.  Denied the truth of reincarnation, enslavement = the opportunity for the power elite to use the false concept of abortion kills babies to occupy the energies of millions while behind the scenes nefarious activities can take place undetected.[xiv]  An excellent example is how the outcome of important political elections can be manipulated by encouraging those who call themselves pro-life to vote for the candidate professing agreement with the pro-lifers.  This candidate may or may not be the best individual to lead a nation.

D.  Denied the truth of reincarnation, enslavement = homo phobia = a means to encourage hatred, discrimination, and violence.  The eternal life of a Soul—who eons ago made the freewill choice to incarnate on Earth’s 3rd dimensional plane of duality—is characterized by incarnating in both male and female bodies, rich and poor, in a variety of races, and in healthy and physically challenged bodies.  A variety of lifestyles is assumed in order to learn from each experience.  Incarnating in both male and female bodies = the opportunity to evolve into an androgynous being—meaning the Soul has achieved the balance of masculine and feminine energies required to evolve into the likeness and image of our Mother/Father God.  As the Soul works to achieve this balance of energies, it incarnates into male and female bodies in a number of incarnations.  Although Souls live in an atmosphere of Unconditional Love on the inner planes, they develop special affinities to particular Souls.  When these Souls incarnate into physical bodies, they may choose male or female bodies.  The gender of the physical body does not impact the Souls’ love for each other.

As we have seen from past life regressions, our physical bodies carry memories from previous incarnations.  My intuitive sense is that a Soul who has incarnated in the same gender for several lifetimes in a row and then, switches to the opposite gender in the present incarnation may manifest as what we call homosexual for the simple reason his/her cells still carry strong memories of the previous lives.  Cellular memory may also account for the individual feeling she/he is in the wrong body.  Bisexuality can actually indicate a step toward attaining androgyne.

Immeasurable enslavement and suffering have resulted from religions’ refusal to teach the truth of reincarnation.  Past life regressions and the miracles of healing that often occur have proven the extent of the suffering incurred.

From the Soul-level perspective, the gender of the body makes no difference.   There is no judgment!

III.  Born againa misinterpretation of this extremely popular religious term is used to enslave millions.  Christians are taught that in order to avoid spending eternity in hell, they must be born again.  This represents an example of translators interpreting the Bible in accordance with their religious doctrines.

Let’s look at the story of Nicodemus in John 3.  As a Pharisee, Nicodemus accepted reincarnation for the good souls.[xv]  He had been observing Jesus and was impressed:  “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God.”  Jesus intuitively knows that Nicodemus’ statement is really a question.  He answers the question he perceives.  “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he is not able to see the kingdom of God.

The Greek word used here is gennethe in the passive voice, indicating the subject is acted upon by someone else.  In the passive voice, gennethe means to be born of woman.  The Greek word translated here as again is anothen.  It means both again and from above.  I choose to translate anothen as again based of the passive voice of gennethe.  Thus Jesus’ statement actually reads:  “unless one is born again of woman, he is not able to see the kingdom of God.”  In other words, Nicodemus must reincarnate until he is spiritually mature enough to perform the signs Jesus performed.

Reincarnation is the means by which we evolve in spiritual maturity to the point of ascension to a higher dimension of consciousness.  By religions failing to teach reincarnation, humanity is enslaved to a level of consciousness that does not recognize our innate individual sovereignty.  Instead, Christians are taught that salvation from eternity in hell comes through “Jesus’ blood shed on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins.”  Christians are taught to worship Jesus as Redeemer and Savior.  Many sing popular hymns like “Jesus Paid It All.”

To say Jesus paid it all enslaves Christians by preventing individual spiritual evolvement.  Just as a young child must learn to walk on his own, humanity must seek truth and integrate it into our personal lives on our own.  Jesus shows us the Way; he does not do it for us.[xvi]

IV.  Religions enslave by their failure to encourage holistic self-growth, which is the Soul purpose in reincarnating.  Jesus taught that those who believe in him (meaning who believe in their own indwelling God) would do greater works than he did.  Yet the Bible does not teach humanity how to achieve a level of spiritual consciousness that would allow us to do these works.  Religions do not encourage humanity to think in terms of individual growth.  Instead, they teach humanity to be dependent upon the religious authorities to tell them what to believe, what to do, the rituals they are to perform or in which to participate, and to walk in Jesus’ footsteps.  They do not teach individual self worth and being an integral unique part of the overall Divine Plan.  

 Humanity is led into believing it is separate from God and all other parts of Creation.  Humanity is alone with no real purpose in life.  This is the worst type of enslavement—enslavement to meaninglessness!

 ************************

 During the last five weeks before 12/21/12, I encourage everyone—especially those who are deeply involved in the external religions of Pharisees—to look again at Jesus, the Divine Idea of humanity in perfection.  Then look within yourselves to determine how closely you resemble this Divine Idea.  Are you a sovereign being of Love & Light – OR – are you simply saying, “I have nothing to worry over … I’m saved, I’m a born again Christian.  Jesus did it all for me.”

In truth, no one has anything over which to worry.  All will ascend when they are ready.  On the other hand, Earth has invited every member of the human family to ascend with her in 2012!  The choice is yours.
