a life changing personal spiritual journey

 

It can get confusing, how do we know if it is God that speaks to us, angels, demons, our higher self or extraterrestrials?

The universe is a crowded place. With all the entities floating around out there and all of the alternate and parallel universes , how can we keep it all straight and actually know who is trying to communicate with us?

I believe the best way is to trust our gut and heart.

If the message is positive and “feels” good. it is probably from a friendly source.

If there is negativity, makes you nervous or skirmish and or causes harm to yourself or someone, ignore it.

Give it some thought, if it is going to have a positive impact on your life or others, regardless of the obstacles you will encounter, or the life lessons learned, go for it.

Know thyself

a personal spiritual journey about learning Thy Self.

Author unknown

To Know Thy Self be prepared to face down your fear of being taught to know “myself”.

But you have to know “myself” before you could learn about your place in the cosmos and your part in the immutable laws which run it.

To know “myself” you have to think about ‘life, the universe, and everything’.

Einstein’s Definition of God

 

 

An excerpt from The Lost Key: Written by Robert Lomas.

Einstein had condemned my Presbyterian God as the God of a naive man. I was no longer naive. I had been educated in the ways of science, so a God with the virtue of not being personally interested in me, but who retained the power to fix the value of the quantum coupling constant, perhaps had promise after all. I could easily accept Einstein’s definition of a Supreme Being as the Guardian of the Laws of Physics.

Are You Living In Faith Or Fear?

 

After the recent hurricane season, where a couple of strong hurricanes struck the United States, I suddenly realized how many people are actually living their lives in fear. 

People were buying enough supplies to last for months and exhausting supplies for those who needed them.

During Irma, which struck Florida, I determined that there are only two ways to live your life, either you live it in faith, the faith in a Supreme Being and regardless of what happens you will survive. 

Or you live your life in fear, always fearing the next crisis coming down the road, by living in fear and with lack of trust in a Supreme Being one continuously experiences stress, putting undue strain on not only your body but on those around us as well.

To live in faith one needs to realize there is a Supreme Intelligence and we are all connected to it. That Supreme Intelligence or God Force is available to each and every one of us for guidance and protection.

Even though bad things do happen to good people, in the end, each and every one of us only experience what we can handle and the lessons learned through adversity make us stronger and wiser.

We need to realize we never die, regardless of what may come about, our soul never dies and we do live in eternity. Once we totally understand this, it is much easier to live in faith than being constantly in fear.

Masonry and Dogma

An Excerpt from the best selling book by Robert Lomas: The Lost Keys of Masonry

Freemasonry, by forbidding religious discussion at its meetings will not allow a Masonic theological doctrine to develop.’ I found this an important statement, as it goes well beyond simply forbidding the discussion of religion and politics, which had been in force since the adoption of Anderson’s Constitutions. It shows an awareness of Masonic dogma being inadvertently created if points of religious agreement were discussed in lodge. My personal experience of dogma, at the hands of various Sunday School teachers, had left me highly sensitive to the danger of it. Here I now found a strong statement of the religious tolerance at the heart of Masonic regulation.

The Masonic Tracing Board

 

 

 

 

 

The Masonic Tracing Board

The Tracing Board is for the Master to lay lines and draw designs on, the better to enable the Brethren to carry on the intended structure with regularity and propriety. The Volume of the Sacred Law may justly be deemed the spiritual Tracing Board of the Great Architect of the Universe, in which are laid down such Divine laws and moral plans that, were we conversant therein and adherent thereto, would bring us to an ethereal mansion not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

The Main Reason Masons and the Church Disagree

 

In the Gnostic work Treatise Resurrection, ordinary human existence is described as spiritual death whereas the resurrection is the moment of enlightenment and reveals what truly exists. Whoever grasps this idea becomes spiritually alive and can be resurrected from the dead immediately.

The Gospel of Philip says those who say they will die first and then rise are in error, they must receive the resurrection while they live, which is in agreement of what Jesus taught.

This is in direct conflict with the church that believes, only those who have had direct access to Christ, or their representatives have direct access to resurrection, all others must go through them.

Most Gnostics view Jesus, not as a God, but as the man who illuminated the pathway.

Whoever sees the Lord through inner vision can claim his or her own authority equals or surpasses that of the apostles and their successors.

In other words, they don’t need an intermediary to communicate with God.

The concept of gnosis (knowledge) is the exact opposite of the Church’s concept of faith, and it is the type of thought process that fits well with masonry,
