The Five Trees In Paradise

Expert Author Keith Collins

The Five Trees In Paradise appear in the Gospel of Thomas “#19″.

It is an allegory of Jesus that explains that whoever attains the 5 levels of Consciousness will overcome the duality of life & death.

With all five levels of Consciousness in alignment, life is absolutely ideal.

Absolute choice allows each level to operate autonomously with very interesting outcomes that can be less than ideal.

Paradise is synonymous with an ideal life.

Jesus adds that the five trees do not change with summer or winter and their leaves do not fall.

This is to say that from an absolute perspective all five levels exist at once and for all time, simultaneously, connectedly & continuously.

The five trees are a symbol of the five levels from which life can be perceived with five uniquely different perspectives:

The Physical Id – the Sub-conscious

The Physical Ego – the Conscious

The Spiritual Ego – the Super-conscious

The Spiritual Entity – the Supra-conscious

The One – God Consciousness

As a physical Human Being, I am only conscious of the perspective of my physical ego sense of Self.

The Perspective of the Physical Id is to keep the human being alive.

My Id is my sub-conscious mind that controls my physical body emotionally.

My physical experience is emotional, based on the beliefs & convictions of my sub-consciously active programming.

The Id is responsible for my survival & how well I survive.

It has access only to local knowledge of my physical situation.

It is programmed by my physical senses & my experience of life.

As with a computer programme, garbage in equals garbage out.

My Id is my voice of reason.

It supplies my reasons why to act and why not to act.

When I listen to reason, I am hearing my sub-conscious programmed beliefs.

Limiting beliefs & fears are a bug in my data base of experiences.

The capacity of my Id is relative to the purity of my programming.

The Perspective of the Physical Ego is that of my conscious sense of Self.

It is my perspective of who I believe my Self to be.

The ego has a finite choice of seemingly infinite possibilities of who it can be.

How my ego sees itself is a reflection of my sub-conscious programming.

My physical id & my physical ego work together to make sense of a seemingly senseless world.

My conscious sense of Self seeks for my Self to make sense.

It seeks comfort & security from a seemingly insane world.

The physical ego needs to see itself as sane.

It does this by comparison with what all other people deem to be normal behaviour aligned with common beliefs.

The fear of being abnormal disallows my perspective of a non-physical existence.

The physical ego sees itself as a physical human being having a physical experience called life.

The Perspective of the Spiritual Ego is the perspective of my spiritual sense of Self.

It is my awareness of being a spiritual Being.

It is me being Mindful.

I call my spiritual sense of Self, my Soul, my Higher Self, my real Self or my True Self.

My Soul knows my vision, mission & purpose for my life.

It is always in full awareness of my destiny, even when the physical ego is unaware & unawakened and following my fate.

Disconnected from my spiritual ego, I follow my fate or my doom, my fortune or my misfortune with varying degrees of luck or chance.

The perspective of my spiritual ego is beyond the dual reality of space & time.

There is no paradox, there is no problem, there is no fear and there is no conflict from the perspective of my spiritual ego.

It sees only the bigger picture of Life.

However, it does require the alignment of my physical ego, to achieve its goals, accomplish its skills and attain its attributes to expand & develop my spiritual success.

My spiritual ego has the awareness and my physical ego has the conscious ability.

Together they co-operate with conscious-awareness of all that is.

The Perspective of the Spiritual Entity is Sovereign.

It is a Sovereign Entity with its own part to play in the Universal Experience of Life.

It sees the Big Picture of Everything as a Grand Design.

It sees all three aspects of my Self as One.

It is omniscient, omnipotent & omnipresent.

It is pure imagination.

It is the Captain of my Ship of Consciousness.

It is an Individual Creative Spark of All That Is.

It has a Super Vision for the Divine Plan.

An Individual Aspect of God that is a Sovereign Entity.

A Divine Perspective that can create whatever it can imagine.

It is the combined consciousness of my ego, id & entity.

It is my Conscious-Id-Entity.

It is my Supra-Conscious Self.

The Perspective of the One is Oneness.

Oneness is the Singularity of All That Is.

It is without Individuality.

It is the Divinity of the Divine One.

It is the Ultimate Intention.

The ultimate intention is the Divine Plan to experience Divinity through the physical & spiritual experience of its Conscious & Unconscious States of Beingness.

The Divine seeks to experience its own Divinity through four distinct aspects of its Self.

Its sub-conscious physical Self – the Id.

Its conscious physical Self – the Ego.

Its super-conscious spiritual Self – the Soul or spirit ego.

Its supra-conscious spiritual Entity.

When all four levels of Consciousness come into alignment they co-operate as One and become at one with the singularity of Oneness.

From the perspective of Oneness, One is All & All is One and One is All That Is, all that was and all that ever will be. Amen.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search,at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source. I began taking notes for this book over thirty years ago, at the time, writing a book was the farthest thing from my mind. My only thought was to have a journal to read over when I got older. As a result, I didn’t record some of my references, many of the references were from Aboriginal and Mayan elders themselves, many of which has been the victim of the ravages of time.

Entering a New Dimension of Consciousness

Photography Prints

I have believed for quite some time that our DNA is being activated into a new awareness.

Hopi and other American Indian shamans as well as myself believe we are moving into a time when we will chose a future of doom and gloom or an era of a new beginning, a new frequency, or a new dimension of existence where we will become more intuitive and able to understand the motives of others and possibly reconnect with beings of other dimensions.

As we move into this new reality, many of us will experience symptoms that will tell the discerning soul they are indeed moving to a heightened awareness.

I seem to be experiencing most of the symptoms they are describing, although some may move into this new era and display no symptoms at all. Alas, some may have real physical diseases that should be checked out by a doctor. Proceed at your own discretion.

The following symptoms were noted in Shirley Maclaine’s new book,”What If?”

  1. Headaches or nonlocalized pressure in the head;
  1. Shifting or unstable vision; Perhaps the cessation of the karma of the last twenty-six thousand years will enable us to begin again without fear. History will definitely need a new script, and all of us— humans and star

beings, extraterrestrial actors— will have a chance to play our part

  1. Requiring one pair of glasses one day and a different pair the next;
  1. A deepening sense of the ability to “see”;

  1. Sleep pattern interruptions;
  1. Feelings that you are going crazy, losing your mind, or an inability to focus;
  1. Emotional tenderness, mood swings, and “mania”;
  1. An embracing of unity consciousness;
  1. Heightened sensitivity to smell, sound, and

taste, or change in eating preferences;

  1. Losing track of “time”;
  1. Physically dropping or bumping into things;
  1. Hearing high-pitched tones or a series of tones or pressure in one or both ears;
  1. Spiritual death or brief suicidal thoughts; Headaches or nonlocalized pressure in the head;
  1. A heightened sense of not being in the present, or a sense of detachment;
  1. A general sense of “free-flowing” energy that can often manifest and be misinterpreted as anxiety;
  1. Jolts of energy that are felt physically and often will move the body;
  1. Lack of focus and attention for any length of time;
  1. Heightened, newfound discomfort with some public environments;
  1. A sudden urge to make everything spacious, to release personal treasures, or to remove clutter from your environment;
  1. Heartburn or chest pressure;
  1. Attraction to new colors;
  1. Change in priorities in your career/ relationships;  and
  1. A feeling of time “moving fast.”

The Land Before Time

Interesting and thought provoking, it could explain a lot about the world situation today.

Reprinted from the Atlantean Garden

Legendary Pre-Flood Civilizations

The legendary pre-Flood civilizations like Atlantis, Thule, and Hyperborea were said to have been built on highly advanced science and technology, with a possibly direct connection with what is happening now around the world.Sir Francis Bacon, a key leader in the Rosicrucians which later became known as the Illuminati, planned for America to become the “New Atlantis” and the center of the New World Order about a hundred years before America became a nation. To better understand the occult connections between antediluvian civilizations, such as Atlantis or Thule, and modern times, it becomes necessary to review the accounts of those who supposedly established these civilizations.
In the pre-Flood world of Noah, it is written that there was interspecies breeding going on between the “sons of God,” or the B’nai Elohim and mortal human women. The ancient rabbinic scholars believed that the term “sons of God” specifically referred to fallen angels and this was in fact the teaching of the early church for several hundred years.
The offspring of these fallen angels procreating with human women where called the Nephilim. Much of these stories have been effectively suppressed for centuries and banned from inclusion in later versions of the Bible, but have been recently re-discovered; for example in passages fromThe Book of Enoch.

There are numerous other universal mythologies of pre-Flood civilizations that speak of these god men coming from the stars and seeding the human race.

In addition, traditional theories of evolution are starting to be replaced by a “new” understanding that the humanity on Earth was likely seeded by beings from other worlds.

Anomalies which may indicate highly advanced pre-Flood civilizations include the monolithic monuments that survived the Flood which ended the Pleistocene era, as well as massive architectural wonders such as the pyramids, Sphinx and the Incan and Mayan monuments. Many of these structures could only have been built with math and coordination belonging to a high civilization, and technology that is superior to that which was said to be available.

One of the forces supposedly used by certain groups in these pre-Flood times was a mysterious life energy, that the Nazis re-discovered, called the Vril force. The Vril force, the energy fields studied by Nicola Tesla, and what is now called scalar technology are based on similar theories deriving from quantum mechanics.
Scalar Technology is based on the theory that there is a fourth dimension where powerful energies for destruction or healing on a planetary level can be transferred into our three dimensional reality and change that reality.The Nazi concept of a Vril force is based on the idea that a race of god men came from the stars in ships powered by this force and settled on the legendary island of Thule where they founded the civilization called Hyperborea.
Plato believed in the Egyptian legend of Atlantis and Herodotus spoke of the another Egyptian legend of the continent of Hyperborea in the far north. When an ice age supposedly destroyed Hyperborea, this race of god men migrated south and it may be they who created the empire of Atlantis in the Atlantic.
The secret occult societies that put Hitler into power were extremely interested in Antarctica beginning in the 1930s. The Vril and Thule societies diligently researched the ancient Tibetan, Indian, and Greek historic texts concerning pre-history.  They were conducting the type of archeology that the Indiana Jones movies were based on.Documenting the cultural, linguistic, and genetic similarities of these legends with the Nordic legends of blonde haired blue eyed “gods”, the occult societies that influenced NAZI ideology came to their conclusion that the Earth undergoes periodic global cataclysms, and that vast portions of the inner Earth is hollow and has been inhabited within for many millennia by another unknown branch of humanity.
Ultima Thule is supposed to have been the name of the capital city of the continent of Hyperborea, which was older than Atlantis. According to occult teachings, the Hyperboreans were the most highly technologically and socially advanced society that existed in the pre-Flood age.
When the Flood came the Hyperboreans used the large tunnels which penetrate through the Earth’s crust to permanently settle under the Himalayas.According to some legends they named their new kingdom Agharta or Agharti and its capital city was Shamballah, which was the mythical paradise below the surface of the Earth.
There are many scientists and researchers who believe that the founders of Hyberborea, Atlantis, Thule and other ancient civilizations were beings from other planets.
There are also a growing number of Biblical scholars who believe that these ‘aliens’ did not come from other planets, but other dimensions, and that they were actually the fallen angels who mated with human women who produced the Nephilim. The Nazis believed that the Nordic-looking “gods” who came from the stars were a genetically distinct race from another world, had RH negative blood type, and did not “evolve” from apes in Africa.
The Nazis supposedly were aided by a group of attractive females with clairvoyant powers called the Vril Maidens who could channel scientific and technological information including rocket design and even how to build UFO-type flying machines.The Vril Maidens were not only famous for their gifted psychic ability, but for wearing their hair long and never cutting it. They claimed that a planet around the Aldebaran star system was inhabited by a race of people similar to ourselves with a possible shared ancestry.
The entire Nazi secret energy and propulsion program went hand in hand with their understanding of alternative physics and their occult science of consciousness. Nazi scientists working on their most top secret programs relied on the occult Vril power, a form of usable free energy, genetic manipulation, and ancient occult meditation techniques. Unfortunately, much of this technology was later used for mind control, both by the Nazi war machine and the allied powers that defeated them.
Werner von Braun, the founder of America’s NASA space program, was an elite Nazi scientist who had advanced technology on propulsion and rocketry.
During Operation Paperclip, when America, in competition with Russia over Nazi scientists after World War II, smuggled in over 8,000 scientists. These scientists brought with them their occult practices and beliefs, along with the science which the US further developed for mind control (see MKULTRA).
In 1871, British novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton, in The Coming Race, described a superior race called the Vril-ya, who lived underground and sustained themselves with the Vril force or psychokinetic energy. They may have been the descendants of the Hyperboreans, inhabitants of the island of Thule. The Hyperboreans supposedly harnessed the power of Vril to manipulate matter and energy, enabling them extended lifespans and existing in what some might regard as a god-like existance.
The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) wrote of the Übermensch (Superman) in his work, Der Antichrist. Nietzsche wrote “Let us see ourselves for what we are. We are Hyperboreans. We know well enough how we are living off that track.”When Nietzsche published “The Will to Power” he was speaking of the Vril force and spoke of “the herd,” meaning the ordinary people who live by laws imposed by the corrupt State. In contrast Nietzsche spoke of the supermen who tap into a supernatural divine force that raises them above the ordinary man.

The Germans and the Extraterrestrials, Did Hitler Make Contact?

Written by; The Bashful Country Boy

 

There is much evidence that the Nazi Germans had contact with extraterrestrials. At that period of time, Hitler had an  interest in the occult as well as the esoteric sciences. Along with that there is some evidence he may have had contact with extraterrestrials.

There are many facets of the supernatural and occult sciences, some what we would determine to be good and some would be evil by our definition. Hitler and the Nazis were operating on the dark side,evidenced by the obvious fact they were eliminating all societies that represented good:the Jews,masons, and many  other organizations.

I’m sure we have all seen the hit movie,”Raiders of the Lost Ark”, and others that followed in the series. Although a fictional story, I feel there is some truth in the movies. he was searching for the Holy Grail and for way to access supernatural powers

In his attempt to create a master race, he killed or destroyed all who could have aided him in creating a better society, many scientists, engineers and teachers were eliminated in his cleansing. Many of the smartest people in Germany were killed.

That period in history was also the beginning of modern day contact with beings from other realms, including our own Roswell incident in New Mexico. His interest in the dark side and desire to destroy all that was good drew to him the same element from other dimensions.

Just like on earth , there are many different cultures in the esoteric world, some good, some evil , and many have different points of view than what we would normally assume. Many are just like us and there are alternate earths where our doubles are living and breathing just as we do here on earth.

They don’t all look alike and they come from a variety of galaxies scattered throughout the universe. Some are our friends, some , not so much.

Some are here to help, some would like to see us destroyed so they could control our world and reap our resources. It has been eported that the Nazi’s were working with aliens, but there is never any mention of who they may have been or what their intentions were.

Most people just assume the ET’s are all the same and ,have similar motives, and either mean to do us harm or help us, depending on their own individual outlook on life.

With HItler’s objective in mind, and realizing that like attracts like, it would be obvious he would be communicating with those from the dark side. At that time there were many new and innovative ideas that were put forth by the Nazis. They were working on developing a nuclear bomb,   anti gravity , space flight, and many other modern day inventions.

The ET’s would have had knowledge of these processes and would have been a great help to anyone inquiring.

 As in many realms of life , there is probably no hard and fast truth, but by putting two and two together, sometimes we get four.

Getting What we Desire in Life

This blog is the result of my own thoughts combined with those of an unknown author. The thoughts are not all mine, although I do agree with them and wish to thank the original author  for most of the content.

I recently finished reading,”The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown, author of the DaVinci Code. A fascinating book in it’s own right. The book finally brought out in the last chapter what life is all about. It fully explains how we can achieve all we want and need in life.

And as is true with most profound discoveries, the answer is so simple and easy to discover it is overlooked by almost everyone,and understood by even fewer people.

We always assume that all profound and great truths need to be complicated and hard to comprehend, hidden from all but the elite. Most often, truth is right under our nose and in plain sight, and very often, as my mother would always say,” if it was a snake, it would bite you”.

The truth is that the Universe has been answering your wants and desires all  your life, but you cannot receive the correct answers unless you are aware.  Be aware of everything around you, because you are receiving the answers to your questions in every moment of the day.  The channels those answers can come through are varied and unlimited.  They can be delivered in the form of a newspaper headline that attracts your attention, or overhearing someone speaking, or a song on the radio, or signage on a truck passing by, or receiving a sudden inspiration. All we need to do is remember to remember, and become aware!

The rest is easy.

I have found on my own life and in others’ lives that we do not think well of ourselves or love ourselves completely.  To not love ourselves can keep what we want from us. By not loving ourselves, we are literally pushing what we desire  away from us.

We have been conditioned by society and those around us too often expect the worse, and even some think we need to repay all karma before we can deserve all the good that should be available to us. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

We could never repay all the supposedly “bad” karma we have built up over the past. Very often, while paying off one karmic debt, other debt is accumulated, it can be an endless cycle. We need to remember as we are experiencing life, others are also interacting with us and learning their own life lessons.

The key to repaying our karmic debts, is not to just repay it, but to forgive ourselves and others in the process. Because of our so-called bad karma, others have learned as well.

reality

We each create our own reality

Everything we want, whatever it may be, is motivated by love regardless of if we realize it or not. It is to experience the feelings of love  in having those things–youth, money, the perfect person, job, body, or health.  To attract the things we love we must transmit love, and those things will appear immediately.

The catch is, to transmit the highest frequency of love, you must love yourself, and that can be difficult for many.  If you focus on the outside and what you see now, you  trip yourself up, because what you see and feel about you now is the result of what you have thought in the past.  

To love yourself fully, you must focus on a new dimension of You.  You must focus on the “Golden Source” inside of You.  Take a moment and sit still.  Focus on feeling the soul, or life presence located near the heart chakra.  As you focus on the presence within, it will begin to reveal itself to You.  It is a feeling of pure love and bliss, and it is perfection.  That presence is the perfection of You.  That presence is the real You.  As you focus on that presence, as you feel, love, and praise that presence, you will love yourself fully, quite possibly for the first time in your life.

Any time you look at yourself with critical eyes, switch your focus immediately to the presence within, and its perfection will reveal itself to You.  As you do this, all imperfections that have manifested in your life will dissolve, because imperfections cannot exist in the light of this presence.  Whether you want to regain perfect eyesight, dissolve disease and restore well-being, turn poverty into abundance, reverse aging and degeneration, or eradicate any negativity, focus on and love the presence within you and perfection will manifest.

The absolute truth is that the “I” is perfect and complete;

the real “I” is spiritual and can therefore never be less than

perfect; it can never have any lack, limitation, or disease

Uluru, To the Top!

Uluru, To The Top!

Ayres Rock, Northern Territory, Australia

As the “Rock” came into sight, I began feeling the energy from this ancient monolith, which was formed from a featureless landscape during the Tjukurpa, or creation.  As the bus approached Uluru, I began to wonder what adventure awaited me.

YOUR FAVORITE AUSSIE ONLINE STORE

The “Rock” became a very impressive sight, rising from the floor of the outback. It was the only object to be seen for miles!

To Aborigines, Uluru is a Cathedral and though the outside form is visible, the underlying spiritual concepts are not a matter of public record. It is a living reminder of the Dream time struggle. The stories which relate to every aspect of its extraordinary form carry clear moral codes, good prevailing over evil. The spiritual over the physical, the importance of hospitality and the maintenance of the law.

If I was to climb this monolith, it would be very difficult,  my right arm  was still very weak from a  motorcycle accident three months earlier. The way to the top was very steep and the only way was to pull oneself up by a large chain that had been provided.  I almost quit climbing twice.

I had to do it, several months earlier I had felt the need  to climb to the top and find a man-sized pit surrounded by three circular ones,  this was one of the reasons I had come to the Land of Oz.

Intuition had  told me to leave my forty pounds of camera equipment in the bus, I didn’t do it, the reason became apparent, myself and some of the other photographers had extreme difficulty. Our light meters would not give a correct reading. After I had returned home and had the slides developed, they were all black! Whatever energy that emits from this shrine had played havoc with the electronics in our cameras. I encountered the same problem in Egypt, as I had to replace some of the electronics  in my camera after trying to photograph the step pyramid.

Arriving at the top I immediately found the pit and three circles that had been carved into the stone many ages ago.
As I Lay in the pit I could only imagine what ancient ceremonies had taken place here.

It was very beautiful, standing on top of this ancient landmark, with the Australian plain stretching out before me , I could see forever.

After several minutes of contemplating the wonder of being  in this great place, it was time to start the trip down the side of the “rock”. The trip down was a lot easier, as the old saying goes, it’s all downhill from here.

By the time everyone reached the bus it was nearing sunset, so we raced to get a photo of Uluru as the sun sat behind us. As the sun raced down, the sky changes  from blue to orange and back to purple, the color fading as darkness descended upon us.

Time to eat!! Time for a tinnie (can of beer), our dinner of steak, shrimp, beans and potato was being prepared on the barbie! It doesn’t get any better than this!!

The weather was turning cold, we were headed for a record low of twenty degrees F, it would be a long night with only my  light jacket and an uninsulated swag to sleep in!!

The effects of the tinnies and long necks were being felt, three o’clock in the morning and it was time for a bathroom call, freezing, I made the long trip to the latrine, being chilled to the bone, there would be no sleep the rest of the night.
