NONDUALISM

I am a manifest form of the Supreme Consciousness with its innate Energy Field but in the cosmic manifestation I have forgotten my true identity which is that of the Supreme Consciousness which I always am in the essence.

Spatiotemporal factors, karma, heredity, upbringing, education, sensuality and other forms of interference - the Maya - have smothered my true nature and so by taking to the Yoga all that I am doing is simply uncovering my true nature which is that of the Supreme Consciousness (which I am at all times)- through the Yogic process, I am taking away all the obstructing layers that have covered my true Divine nature.

This the way to the highest reality.

The Ultimate Reality is the Pure Consciousness with its innate Pure Energy Field that transcends the whole Cosmic/Supracosmic Manifestation and is besides the source of it.

PS: I am now on the verge of backing out of the Yoga as I am finding the going too tough but anyone with the inner fitness who wishes to be one with the highest reality will have to embark on the nondual path as explained above.

HOW DO I DIFFER FROM CLASSICAL NONDUALISM?

I distance myself from the illusion aspect of nondualism - classical nondualism, advaita, claims the universe is unreal and that salvation lies in escapism via a series of trances into as high a nondual consciousness as is possible.

On the other hand, I hold fast by transformation and have nothing whatsoever to do with escapism.

I say that nondualism is the logical and verifiable basis of existence - a case of the One manifesting as the Many.

I say that the universe being a graduated manifestation of the One is as real in the essence as the One itself though it may appear evanescent and corrupt on the surface.

The aim is to reach via trance states as high in consciousness-force as is possible into the higher planes but to subsequently cause the Power, Light, Knowledge, Bliss, Plasticity and Peace of the higher planes to descend and to fuse with the inferior movements of the lower planes so that ultimately there remains no difference between the highest planes and the lower manifestation - perfection everywhere in manifest form.

Is it enough that a person touches you to make you c*m within few minutes?

You suffer of premature ejaculation.

Now we know why you prefer to be a virgin instead of cultivate a relationship with a woman.

"Most of us think that we are working in evolutionary research. But is its explanatory power any more than verbal?…Evolution not only conveys no knowledge, but seems somehow to convey anti-knowledge…"

Dr. Colin Patterson (1933-1998), senior paleontologist at the British Museum

(In 1981 Dr Patterson gave a talk at the American Museum of Natural History which was tape-recorded without his knowledge which is typed as a quote above. Colin Patterson was upset when some of his private views on evolution were made public.)

"If I knew of any fossil (showing an evolutionary link between human and ape) I would certainly have included them in my book. I will lay it on the line – there is not one such fossil."

"Natural selection is a real process, and it works well for explaining certain limited kinds of variation - small-scale change…Where it doesn’t work well is where Darwin thought it could, namely, the real complexity of life. We have the finch beak, and then you have the finch itself. Minor change in the structure of the beak versus the origin of the organism itself."

JESUS - A TYRANT & NOT A LOVING MOTHER HEN:

"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem! You kill the prophets of God. You throw stones to kill men who are sent to you. How often I have wanted to gather your people together as a mother hen gathers her little ones under her wings. But you would not come!"

- Matthew 23: 37

COMMENTS: An egoistic statement uttered by Jesus who intended to impose his teachings on the Jews of his days. The mother hen example shows nurture which Jesus uses in the context to buttress his point about how people rebuff prophets who come to lead them but a true prophet will behave like a loving mother and not seek to harm, abuse, coerce or threaten those who reject his teachings. Does a mother curse or abuse or threaten her child if the child seeks love elsewhere? No. So, Jesus' example of a mother hen is way off the mark and is wrong. Only a tyrant would seek to impose himself forcibly on an unwilling audience. Why should any prophet force his tepid, intolerant and megalomaniacal and often erroneous teachings on people who're unwilling to follow him and when his teachings are rejected which true prophet would enter a fit of rage and curse those who do not follow him? These are not the signs of a true prophet. A true prophet cares not if people curse him, abuse him, insult him or reject him. A true prophet is not out to force any of his insights on a reluctant humanity and he stays far away from making a spectacle of himself. He only desires good for friends and for foes and goes his way peacefully.

.....But the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus ushered in a host of transformative changes, and one of those changes is vital to our conversation here: Biological procreation no longer determines membership in God’s kingdom. Spiritual rebirth through faith in Christ does.

Under the old covenant, one could simply be born into the people of God. But as Jesus explained to Nicodemus, under the new covenant,“no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again”(John 3:3). In the words of John Piper, God’s people are now “produced not by physical procreation but by spiritual regeneration.”

This change in how the kingdom of God is built has had lasting consequences that pertain to our discussion of same-sex marriage.

First, marriage and procreation are no longer seen as the necessary ways of growing God’s family.

Second, lifelong celibacy is a valid option for Christians, even though it generally wasn’t for the ancient Israelites.

Third, the definition of family has changed for Christians.....

rabbee: G-D'S Edicts do not change, no matter how much your mental magic from the same old devil again seduces you to try and mentally only change it. The G-D WHO condemns, homosexuality from halooseefer yesterday, still condemns this today. no matter how many of you, are beguiled to pretend other wise in mental magic only. the worship of halooseefers homosexuality, is the worst form of angel worship you can be involved in. and it was the last straw, for sodam and gomorrah. you shall not love, what G-D hates: from hasatan, baal hamolech, or halooseefer in that worsening order. you would be better off, worshiping hasatan than halooseefer. because this is what homosexuals do, is worship themselves with the angel halooseefer.

rabbee: hey don't blame US for what, jews, christians, muslems, pagans, other atheists and you have all done. if you are doing something wrong, not true to G-D. i shall tell you about this, but i won't force any one to change who is unwilling to change. but i shall inform those of the consequences, of how this harms them and everyone else on this planet. as it stands now without any repent, i already know what is going to all happen again. it is already forever written in TheTorah, what is forever to be in this world rejecting being here in TheTorah in the original sin. and guess what, adam's mate got this from all of you aiding and abetting that same old devil again.

DID JESUS PROMOTE SAME-SEX RELATIONSHIPS?

1) "And Jesus said to them,“The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection."

- Luke 20:34-36

COMMENTS:

The verse above has nothing to do with life in the body or with sex or with the abnormal homosexual condition or with queer relationships.

The verse refers to the afterlife when the indwelling psychic lifts out of the lifeless body and attains to a disembodied state of existence. Obviously, in the disembodied state, relationships are not forged on physical grounds with other disembodied entities or with the universal forces and so it is natural in the discarnate state for disembodied psychics to communicate with each other or to commune with the universal forces in an impersonal manner - this impersonal manner of communication is the only way of entering into entanglements or into relationships in the disembodied state.
