Why is Mysticism Verboten in Christianity?

Let us begin with a basic concept in Mysticism, that is thought of as heresy in Christianity… from the book: Light on Sant Mat, by Maharaj charan Singh.

“The question arises:  Why does not everyone approach Saints, to learn the process [of discovering God Within oneself] and to accumulate Nam, when it is so great and holy?  The reason is that it is not possible to come into contact with Saints without the Grace of God.  Without this Grace, even if one does happen to meet them, faith in their teachings and in Nam does not arise in him.  First, God’s Grace; then contact with Saints and faith in their teachings; and then one’s own efforts, as instructed by them.  That is the order.

That is the order,” refers to the procedure or ‘process’ of instruction given to Mankind by Perfect Living Masters, often referred to in mysticism as ‘Saints’.  And the term “Nam” means the same thing as the “Word” in Christianity.  Both Nam and Word speak to the Spirit of God hidden Within each Soul.

The basic and principle difference between Eastern mysticism and Christianity lies in one reference in the Bible, Hebrews 9:27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after than comes judgment.  

This is clearly wrong, since in Revelation it mentions at least two judgements. Hebrews 9:27 refers to the fact that yes, at the time of death one’s Soul goes before a judge, and one is evaluated as to how well one did working through the Fate Karma one’s Soul designed for its last lifetime?

When one dies, ones brain, personality and psychology all die as well. The only two things carried forward is ones Soul and the MIND that is attached to ones Soul. Each new lifetime requires a new body, brain, personality and psychology to “fit” the life one’s Soul designed.

The Christian is taught that based on Hebrews 9:27,  man only has one lifetime in which to achieve Perfection.  And to further deny Man any more opportunity to achieve a more Enlightened status as a Soul, Christians are further told that the Laws of Karma and Reincarnation  do not exist in Christianity.  So, when you combine all three of these elements of Life, the Christian winds up with only one life in which to achieve Perfection.   And this means that the Christian is up against people in the East whose religions teach them that they have endless lifetimes in which to achieve Perfection of their Souls.

So, here is the Christian, standing in line to be evaluated as to the achievement of the Soul… with people who have had multiple lifetimes in which to be a doctor, minister, entertainer, teacher, fireman, and so forth [each lifetime earning that Soul a great deal of positive Karma], and all of these people are being judged next to the Christian who has only one lifetime.  Is that fair?  Or, what is more likely, some early Pope, in wanting to control people, came up with the idea of limiting Man to one lifetime…in a misrepresenting of Hebrews 9:27.

God never meant Man to live only one lifetime.  This is the reason for the many Hells on the Astral region of Creation.  At the end of each life, ones Soul goes before a ‘judge,’ and that lifetime is evaluated, and one’s Soul gets to design a new lifetime for ones next lifetime…[before going to some Hell for re-education, or some Heaven for rest and relaxation]. The new Lifetime one’s Soul designs is called its Fate Karma.  When one’s Soul is done in some Heaven or Hell, its next lifetime is ready, and ones Soul is part of the creation of that new life form.  God is a loving God.  What is loving about limiting a Soul to one lifetime as a dog?

Now, I ask you… simply as a practical matter, would you prefer more or less chances to achieve the Perfection required of the Soul to enable it to pass through the eye of the needle?  And what about the fact that animals have Souls just like people do, and if this “one life to live” idea is correct, then if a Soul is born into a dog’s form, is that adequate to achieve the perfection of one’s Soul?  I suggest it is not adequate.

So, the choice is ones own choice… and my choice is to believe God wanted me to achieve Perfection, and gave me multiple lifetimes in which to achieve this goal.  But that is just me… and a few billion other people as well.

Peace,.

What is Intuition?

This morning, an interesting way to view the concept of Intuition came to me, and I want to share it with others.

Let us say there is a cliff, and pouring over this cliff is a waterfall. Human nature is to look at the waterfall, think about it, and watch it fall into a pool, then the stream running out of the pool, and on… and on.  Because we can’t see the origin of the water [hidden by the height of the cliff], we first become aware of, and take notice the water, as it pours over the cliff… it is the strange and rare person who ignores the waterfall and, instead, is concerned with the origin of the water?

The above dialogue suggests ‘Intuition,’ but mostly speaks of information.  The only part of the dialogue that is Intuition is the part that suggest the ‘origin of the water’.  Everything else is information.  To acquire and experience Intuition, one must climb up the mountain, and having achieved the level of the cliff, one must then trace the flow of the water ‘back’  to its source:  And another name for this particular process is Enlightenment [or maturation of the Soul].

Intuition is Knowledge, coming from Within oneself, and Knowledge ONLY exists Within oneself; hidden from the brain and ones physical senses.  You see, Intuition is as aspect of Spiritual Truth, while information is part of the illusion of life, whose primary nature is that of change.  And change is the natural nature of the illusion, while Intuition is a part of Reality, which is permanent, unchanging, and Spiritual in nature.

Intuition is an aspect of ones Soul tapping into Truth, which is held as a ‘complete’ concept: That is, all the elements of something, including all the elements which support and describe some basic Truth, are held together in a bit of Intuition that comes to ones Conscious Awareness as a huge Ah-ha.

Finally, Intuition is a bit of insight that is quickly lost… just as soon as ones Attention shifts from ones ‘Consciousness’ to ones brain [which is physical, and incapable of perceiving the invisible three-quarters of ones whole]. And, this describes the difference between the Enlightened individual, and those who are not.  Intuition is a tool of the Enlightened individual, and is a rare experience of those who are not Enlightened [or not Spiritually Evolved].

Peace,

Brother James

__________QUESTION:

How does one define in words that which exists in a dimension that is not physical, tangible, nor capable of being perceived by ones brain?

Or put another way… is what the above definitions speak to not symptoms of what the term demonic stands for?  And, if so, then what is it that causes the symptoms… it is certainly not a word, right?

Does Satan exist, or can the existence of Satan be proven, except by looking at symptoms of behavior that we identify as evil, or Satanic?  In the Bible evil is described as a “spirit”. But what does this mean?  Ever seen a spirit?

Therefore, how does something that does not exist on the physical plane cause one to act in ways defined as Satanic, evil, or as though one is possessed of a demon?

Did you say working through ones MIND?  If not, why  not? Ones actions are fed to ones brain by ones MIND, and ones brain acts out the directions of ones MIND in behaviors.

What is the MIND?

Can a Human Being be a Demon?

Neutral Spiritual Energy, a Concept to Consider

Some years ago, I “Intuited” the phrase “Neutral Spiritual Energy,” for which I quickly coined the label “NSgy”. I have two explanations for ‘why’ I received this particular intuition.

  1. I had been searching for a number of years for ‘something’ that would allow me to complete my attempt to build a theoretical model for the Psychological operations of the Whole Human Being. The phrase ‘Whole Human Being’ refers to the fact that the whole of Man is composed of a Spiritual dimension, A MIND dimension, and a physical dimension. And the only dimension that is easily discernible is the physical dimension.
  2. The second explanation is even more Esoteric that the first.  I believe that I  was “ready” to receive this Intuition… and this requires a bit of explanation.  I believe that we human beings are slowly and secretly acquiring what I refer to as “C’etc” [pronounced ‘C_etcetera’], and C’etc is my symbol for what I believe are the Virtues of Life: Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Acceptance and Empathetic Understanding.  Or, collectively, these Virtues are quite likely what the ancient Greeks referred to as ‘Consciousness’. And these Virtues are stored Within what I have labeled the ‘Apapsyche,’ or the Operational Energy of the Soul.  And these  ‘virtues’ would be composed of bits of Truth, which are created Within Man through a mystical process I refer to as Esotransmutation:  Which is what I have labeled the secret process by which the MIND converts stored Karma [when this Karma is completed] into bits of Truth, which are then stored Within ones Apspsyche [ as complete concepts], until it is time for one to awaken to a particular bit of Truth… which will help one better deal with the illusion of life [specifically resist the evil desires of ones MIND], and thereby further ones movement up the Ladder of Life.

And what I just wrote has taken about thirty years to discover via use of my Intuition, research into the mystical work of Eastern mystics [Saints and Masters], and working as an Esogist, which stands for Esochology, which is what the ancient Greeks studied, and gave to the world as “Psychology,” about 2,000 years ago.

I share this for those who are Enlightened, and thus [possess some level of Intuition], and thus, are perhaps able to Intuit something of what I am sharing from Within themselves?

By the way, the term Within [in bold and italic] indicates that the material it is referring to is invisible and incapable of being perceived by the brain.

Neutral Spiritual Energy, a Concept to Consider

Regarding Judgment…

In the Bible, we are warned against judgment.. and yet, we are also told to resist evil.  How can one do the one, and not the other? Must one not, of necessity, judge evil to resist it?  Or, is it possible to recognize  evil and not judge it?

Matthew 7:1   Judge not, that you be not judged.

Is this warning referring to an act of evil… or to what causes one to engage in evil?  And what is the difference?

When we observe or hear about an act of evil, how many of you realize that the observed act is the result of evil, not itself evil? That is… the act of evil is the result of a person being required to engage in evil… by a MIND that is obeying the Law of Karma, as the Law provides the evil-doer a “lesson” in Life. And the act is but one side of that “lesson”.  The consequences of the act being the backside of the “lesson”.

And the nature of the “Law” always has a consequence side, always!  As ye sow, so shall ye reap is an Absolute Law.

Every act of evil has both a Yang [or action side], and a Yin [reaction side], and it is the reaction side of evil that we normally do not “see”.  And so, the admonition of not judging speaks to the Law, and not to the act.  It is for the wise to realize that no act of evil goes “unnoticed,”  “unrewarded,” nor “un-judged”.  The Law of Karma is an Absolute Law laid down by God in the beginning of Creation.

Since the time the Energy God projected into the Creation first formed entities capable of action on the Earth, the Law of Karma has been in effect, operational, and unavoidable.  The Law of Karma is one of two basic laws which are Absolute in the Creation.   The second basic law is that of Reincarnation.

Once a Soul chooses to explore “Life,”  it becomes subject to the Law of Karma.  So, there is no Soul on Earth that has not chosen to be here.  And all Souls are subject to both the Law of Karma, and to Reincarnation, or the cycle of death and re-birth.

So, the warning not to judge… is simply a reminder that every action in Creation is JUDGED BY THE VERY ACTION ITSELF.

If one is wise, therefore, one observes an evil person and avoids such a person, since it is only a matter of time until that person experiences the REAPING CONSEQUENCES OF his, her or its actions… and you don’t want to be part of that, perhaps?

Peace,

Brother James

 

Regarding Judgment…

My Challenge to the Atheist [Intelack] Personality…

The non-believer [which simply means the person whose Soul is not as yet mature enough to comprehend elements of Life that are not confined to the physical dimension of existence], has been allowed by more Enlightened individuals to bully them by the intense level of fear contained Within the Intelack type personality.  But, what do I mean, right?

First of all, the term “Intelack” refers to those people who look just like other human beings, and yet, the Intelack type personality is someone whose Soul is early in its development.  That is… such Souls are early-on in their development of Consciousness, or what I refer to as “C’etc,”  [which also needs to be defined so that we all know what I am talking about]?

 My work for many years now has been based on two basic assumptions regarding Life, or Reality… which means including the whole of Life, as opposed to just the physical dimension, which is what I refer to as the illusion of life. And the whole of Life means including both the Law of Karma and that of Reincarnation as elements in ones thoughts regarding the Reality of Life.

Now, the Intelack type personality is a Soul that has not had a sufficient number of lifetimes to enable it to awaken to a level of C’etc [or Knowledge of Reality] to perceive the whole of Reality. As a consequence, the Intelack type person is unable to make use of the super subtle faculty of Intuition, or use of what I refer to as ones Apapsyche [Operational Energy of ones Soul]… which enables the Enlightened type person to “see” and “hear” bits of Truth… that are limited to ONLY those Souls that have made such progress: Which is actually Spiritual Progress.

So… my challenge to the Atheist is to prove that what the Enlightened type people are capable of Knowing via Intuition, does not exist.  I mean, I believe it is well past time that we Enlightened people cease being bullied by Intelack people simply because the Intelack has an intense fear of the unknown.

In other words, it is time to stop “taking care of Intelack type people,” by apologizing for possessing a higher level of Consciousness than the Intelack is capable of enjoying.  Let we Enlightened people stop playing dumb, in other words.  Let us cease apologizing for God, and for what God provides we Enlightened individuals.

I believe the present plight of America, in which a godless Intelack in the Presidency is destroying America, has gone far enough.  It is time for the Enlightened in the nation to insist that Obama resign, or be impeached for Treason.  Or have our splendid military exercise a Coup, and then a national election, in which we can reverse our slide into  the abyss of Satan… that we are currently allowing to take place.

In any case, for those who are Spiritually awakened, maintain your love of God with pride and confidence.  This illusion is the pits, and it is currently so overrun by corrupt Souls that it will take enormous effort to right this floundering nation.

Pray continually for God’s help, and do your part in refusing to play Satan’s game of let’s pretend everything is OK.  Time to praise God as the only way for this nation to proceed.

Peace

Brother James

My Challenge to the Atheist [Intelack] Personality…

What Does Meditation Mean?

Despite what the dictionary definition of meditation might say, the mystical meaning of meditation is to withdraw ones attention from the body, and fix it at the ‘eye center,’ which is also known as the “tisra til,” or ‘center eye,’ or the phrase: “If thine eye be centered…thy whole body shall be filled with light”.

And the ‘eye center’ is the mystical designation for where the “door”… spoken of in “knock and it shall be opened unto you,” is located Within Man.  And, for those familiar with my work, the term Within, in bold and italic, always refers to phenomena that exists inside of Man that the brain and physical senses cannot perceive.

So, Within Man, there is an opening, which the Bible refers to in the statement, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle,  than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven”. In this often repeated statement, the meaning is that it is the attachment of the rich man to mammon “his wealth,” that prevents him from  withdrawing  his ‘attention’ Within himself, and fear of loss of his wealth prevents him from putting his attention fully on God, or salvation.

Although well-meaning, many clerics, or people who speak about God… fail to place proper emphasis on the EITHER-OR factor of Spirituality. That is, no part of the physical dimension [or ones attachment to the things of this Earth], including ones family, or fellow man… will accompany one through the doorway leading to Spirituality.  It is this unique REALITY of the Spiritual realm that the Bible speaks of as God being a jealous God.  God is not jealous, but mystics in the past, seeking to emphasize this point about Spirituality being exclusive… mistakenly spoke of God as being a jealous God. God is Love, and the Love of God is Absolute. The Spiritual realm is ABSOLUTELY Pure, just like the Soul, and nothing but Spiritual Energy can exist there, or enter therein.

Therefore, any and all attachments one has created [Idolatry], will keep one tied down to the illusion of life… period.  Meditation is specifically designed to help one free oneself from the many Karmic attachments one has ‘created’ by use of one’s own Spiritual Energy. We are attached to our creations and desires… and meditation is needed because each attachment one has requires ones own Spiritual Energy to maintain.

God is Whole, and each attachment one has is a subtraction of ones whole. To see God, one must be whole.  No exceptions to this Law.

In other words, meditation is the means of slowly pulling ones own Spiritual Energy back to oneself, which means withdrawing it from everything one is attached to.  How effective one is… depends upon how deep-seated are one’s attachments?  And most people are very attached to the things of this world.

And now you know what keeps we Souls continually reincarnating into this physical plane.  Unfortunately, we tend to create more attachments than we can get rid of each birth we have. Pray for God’s Grace in helping you detach from everything that keeps you from placing all your love on God.

Peace

Brother James
