Zen has NO concept of God -- because how can you have a concept of a formless God? That is absurdity! The moment you have a concept you have created a form. That's why Zen never talks about God, Buddha never mentioned God at all. He has been asked again and again, but he keeps mum, he will not say."--Osho

Samadhi means death with consciousness, dying fully alert. You have died many times but it was not samadhi, it was simple death, because whenever you died you were unconscious. Before death happens you are unconscious, it is just a surgical procedure. When for the first time the third stage happens, that is where the Upanishads announced, "AHAM BRAHAMASMI" -- I am God, I am the Brahma. It is where the Sufi mystic, Mansur, declares, "ANA'L HAQ" -- I am the truth. It is there when Jesus declares, "I and my God are one, I and my Father are one.

"The Devil is the fallen human being, God is the risen human being. God is the ultimate possibility of your beatitude; the Devil is your ultimate fall. There is nobody like the Devil existing somewhere. You will never meet him unless you become him. And you will never encounter God unless you become God.

God is alive when you are alive. If you are not alive, how can your God be alive? Your God is yours. If you are dead, your God is dead; if you are alive, your God is alive. Your God cannot be more than you, because your God is your innermost core of being."--Osho

Satan can NEVER be defeated. Sorry to burst people bubbles here, but just as powerful as God may be, his fallen and best angel is just as powerful and may be even more powerful. Powerful and better are two seperate issues, fyi. Read.

The true self is a multidimensional being who has created a hologram of its essence into the lower dimensions to gather experiences. The Buddha saw that the Human body is only a movie screen for the hologram his mind was projecting.

"You are not the body, you are the Self." Instead of imagining that you are a thing in the world, see that the world is within you - within infinite eternal awareness. It is this One, rather than you as a person, who is now experiencing the world from your point of view. For only God sees, only God thinks. Awaken to who you really are and you will see that you are God."- Ramana Maharshi

I thought 7 Chakra was bad or closed from man to open until a proper teacher Jesus comes along. I remember a verse where a demon was cast out and came back be with 7 more although thatll make 8.
I would say though the scriptures that talks about 7 wheels,7 candlesticks,7 plagues,7 seals,7 bowels,7 fountains,7 vials, 7 spirits and more as I look in my bible index,are eerie. Also the mention of 12; Angels,Apostles,Baskets,Brazen Bulls,Foundations,Fountains,Ga tes,Pillars,Stars,Thrones and it goes on. Everyone should see howany times 3,7,12 are used in the bible.
Also the scriptues that speak on taking up snalkes or told moses to put a Brazen Serpent on a staff and it shall heal and smite. What does all this mean? Ive prayed to God countless time in this and always ran into 2 viewpoints one that say it good and the other say it demonics. Im starting to think its both depend on whats your goal in seeking it. Like some Jedi division of the force..Even bible names like Jediael,Jedidah and Jedidiah.
What you think?

"Blessed is the lion which a man eats so that the lion becomes a man. But cursed is the man whom a lion eats so that the man becomes a lion." (Gospel of Thomas

"Cursed is the flesh that depends on the soul, and cursed is the soul that depends on the flesh!"-Yehoshua

The carnal self, or the bestial nature within man is often portrayed as a lion. Alchemical writers of the past made use of this symbolism profusely. To consume a lion is the process of transmuting and sublimating man's lower impulses. This is in accord with the evolutionary urge which is prompted by the higher impulses of man's spiritual nature. Conversely, to allow animal instincts to rule and tyrannize the higher aspects of our being is to figuratively, be consumed by the lion by allowing its persona to be superimposed upon our Real Self. This in a sense is worshipping an idol, a false god, that misleads man's senses and consciousness within the labyrinth of Maya(illusionary wordl). Man should identify himself with his Atma, his spiritual nature, and not conclude that his lower principles with their desires are his Reality.

Attachment to the flesh results in suffering and sorrow, and man is cursed by such conditions that binds his soul to the wheel of birth and rebirth, as graciously pointed out to us by Gautama, the Buddha. Buddah gave us the eight-fold path as a way of escape from the turmoil within the soul. The Christ gave us the prime commandment to love,

“"Beautiful as Consciousness"”

How do you defeat Satan/(Ego)?

You do so by not becoming the DEVIL. You can become something completely different from your known self if you let you idosyncrasies get the best of you.

For example, I can remember when I was a teenager, I would spend hundreds of dollars in unnecessary beauty (superficial) products that I really didn't needed. Mind you this money being allowance (given to me by my parents), and I really didn't have nothing to do with it, so I just blew it on "material" things that only feed my EGO.

My point is, if I had just continued to only buy things like that for superficial reasons, then I wouldn't be the young lady that I am today. Yes, I still do buy beauty products (but they're natural and necessary) that fit my consciousness as of now...

he body is a form composed of the five-fold sheath; therefore, all the five sheaths are implied in the term, body. Apart from the body does the world exist? Has anyone seen the world without the body?

The world is nothing more than an embodiment of the objects perceived by the five sense-organs. Since, through these five sense-organs, a single mind perceives the world, the world is nothing but the mind. Apart from the mind can there be a world?

Apart, from us where is time and where is space? If we are bodies, we are involved in time and space, but are we? We are one and identical now, then, and forever, here, and everywhere. Therefore we, timeless, and spaceless Being, alone are"--Bhagavan Ramana(Ribhu Gita-versus of Reality

Whenever suffering happens to you, you think it is coming from somewhere else, you think it is some accident or some evil forces are working against you.

So you have invented the devil. The devil is just a scapegoat – you are the devil. You create your suffering. But whenever you suffer, you simply throw it on the devil, the devil is doing something. Then you are at ease. Then you never become aware of your own foolish pattern of life.

Or you call it a fate, or you say ”God is testing me." But you go on avoiding the basic fact that you are the sole cause of whatsoever happens to you. And nothing is accidental. Everything has a causal link, and you are the cause.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead(living actually) is an almost exact replica of the Tibetan Book of the Dead, which is coming to us through the Yaksa Saivite Tantric tradition of Himalayas, which strongly influenced the Vajrayana Buddhism or Lamaism. Egyptian priests had a complicated knowledge about the various subtle bodies and astral traveling (as Tantric Buddhists do), and knowledge about yoga, too. Egyptian priests were strictly vegetarian (not even eating eggs), followed brahmacarya vows and abstained from intoxicants, and went through several initiations in order to practice their service.
