What is Life all about? / For All Who Need Comfort / Friday: Texas Storytelling Festival in Denton

             Every animal has a purpose.

What is Life all about?
Why are we here?
What is our purpose for existence?

Our search for meaning
has resulted in much speculation,
philosophical dialog and theological introspection
throughout all of our
brief history.

We can never know
the purpose for which God
intended when He created us,
without the realization
that the purpose
is far
greater than

ourselves.

                    The purity of Truth.

Yes,
we
Humans have very brief and finite Life spans.

Every Living thing fades in and out of existence
at a given time.
And the knowledge
of our circumstance of being,
may or may not ever
be attained.

Sometimes,
the enormity of our need,
of our strong desire for Truth,
crashes over us
like a tidal wave,
and we become paralyzed
in thought and confusion
between our fragile Human emotions
and the Soulful Truth.

Sometimes
doubt and unknowing
leaves us vulnerable and separated
from our deeper selves.
We so desperately long
to stand on the purity
of Truth.
Depressive circumstances
may cause us to fall hard
from a state of Grace
and back into the delusion
of the moment.

                 The purpose is far greater.

My Precious Friends,
the Holy Bible

shows that our purpose in Life
is simple.
And it is to know and Love
God.

The fundamental Truth
that the Word of God reveals
is that God is our Creator.
“It is God that has made us,
and not we ourselves.”
Psalm 100:3; Revelation 4:11

And God
makes everything with a purpose.
Every plant and every animal
has a purpose.
If you are alive,
God has a purpose for you
and for your precious Life.

“. . . for everything, absolutely everything,
above and below, visible and invisible,
everything got started in Him
and finds its purpose in Him.”
Colossians 1:16

                        Every plant has a purpose.

The meaning of our Life
can be derived from contemplation
of our consciousness,
and, most importantly,
our happiness.

Some scientists
have believed that our consciousness,
like space-time, permits our perceptions
to become as real as,
or even more real
than even the material World.
Perhaps,
we create
our own reality.

And maybe,
this ability, or disability, of perception
emanates from a number of dimensions
we are not aware of.
Quantum theory,
in attempting to explain such properties of the mind,
puts forth the idea that our free will
is an alternative to
determinism.

Scientists have now even proposed
the existence of a
Cosmic consciousness.

And so,
around and around
we go.
Unable to explain,
what the Bible tells us so,
about the Existence
of God,
the Cosmic Consciousness.

The Word of God
teaches that everyone knows God,
because God has revealed Himself to all
(Romans 1:19).
In fact,
the Bible tells us that God’s existence
is so obvious that anyone
who suppresses this Truth
is “without excuse”
(Romans 1:20).

Our Cosmic Consciousness,
our Beloved Lord our God,
is the
“Ground of all Being”.

Welcome
to real World.

Goodnight.

Cosmic Consciousness — Quantum Physics’ Missing Link

Does a greater form of consciousness exist? Quantum physics leads to a possibility where cosmic consciousness becomes a reality.

One of the most important questions of the 21st century: Is there such a thing as a higher form of consciousness?

For those who believe to have experienced God directly, the question is spiritual in nature, with a definitive answer. However, for the rest, it is a hypothetical question.

All religious or spiritual tradition teaches of a concealed reality that can be achieved through the transcendence of the five senses. They even give directions for accomplishing this feat, such as Faith, Prayer, meditation, etc.

For those whose belief has eroded, the question seems forgotten if not irrelevant.

Understanding Cosmic Consciousness

On a different note, quantum physics has radically changed the understanding of the Universe. Despite the incredible growth in our understanding, all of this is theoretical and hidden from the human senses.

So, according to our current understanding, the only obstacle in demystifying creations, Spirituality, and science is a missing dimension — at least one we don’t know about. Without this dimension, explaining human existence would be impossible.

People have always associated religion with Spirituality, which isn’t entirely true. One can leave organized religion behind and still remain Spiritual.

The reality that is still hidden from us is the higher consciousness itself. To be able to see it, higher consciousness must become an everyday experience.

Quantum Theory and Cosmology

Let’s take a brief look at Quantum theory. According to the theory, we live in a participatory universe. Even though we consider our everyday reality to be an external reality, it actually is variable based on our perception.

Moreover, the theory explains quantum vacuum, which is essentially an emptiness that exists beyond what we can see (i.e. atoms and molecules).

The theory of cosmology, which is based on Einstein’s general relativity states that the universe started some 12.5 billion years ago. The earliest period of time in the history of our universe is called the Planck era, which is the state where everything is so minuscule that it cannot be further broken down.

Then came the phase of general expansion through which matter, galaxies, planets, and biological life came into this existence that we are familiar with. Since then, everything has been constantly expanding and evolving.

With an understanding of space and time, we are forced to believe that even our brain operates in space and time. So, if the universe really is participatory, our consciousness must also be participating on the quantum level.

This is possible because the ever expanding source of every particle and the newly discovered anti-particle must also be the source of our brain. Since everything comes from the same origin but with different time frames, it is constantly involved in a participatory manner, hence the creations, maintenance, and re-absorption of virtual particles.

This is where the missing link makes sense. Physics need quantum vacuum for a lot of reasons that make theoretical sense.

However, in terms of how we perceive our physical reality, life goes on quite nicely even without the existence of quantum mechanics. So, since we understand that everything that exists depends upon quantum vacuum, our belief that we are exclusive to that rule must be incorrect.

Hence, transcending beyond the five senses — which previously applied only to mystics and sages — is now relevant to literally everyone. These mystics found the answers to so many questions even before the scientific community: cosmic consciousness is the missing link.

Now, at this point, we are faced with the strangeness of quantum physics and its implications on our understanding of the universe.

The thought that even we are a part of this inconceivable reality — where all consciousness becomes one — may sound a bit strange or even misguided, but please keep in mind that our understanding of the world is increasing at an exponential rate and this seems to be confusing us.

If you consider the quantum field theory to be correct, then you subscribe to the belief that spirituality may have been the hidden link all along. And such a belief will, literally, change the way we live our lives,
as Spirituality becomes a huge part of us.

Conclusion

Although, the causations made by Deepak Chopra may not have been proven empirically, the existence of a cosmic consciousness seems today like a possible reality, one that has started to appeal to a wider demographic.

But the concept is still in its infancy and, therefore, needs to be extensively implemented and practiced with before we can experience the latent power held within our spiritual side.

Rest In Peace

by Libera

For all who need comfort,

for all those who mourn.

All those whom we cherished will be reborn

All those whom we Love but see no more

They are not perished, but gone before

And lie in the tender arms of He

Who died for us all to set us free

From hatred and anger and cruel tyranny.

May they rest in peace, and rise in glory

All suffering and sorrow will be no more

They’ll vanish like shadows at Heaven’s Door.

All anguish and grieving will one day be healed

When all of God’s purpose will be revealed.

Though now for a season lost from sight

The innocent slain in the blindness of right

Are now in the warmth of God’s Glorious Light

Where they rest in peace, and rise in Glory.

Lord give me wisdom to comprehend

Why I survive and not my friend

And teach me compassion so I may live,

All my enemies to forgive.

For all who need comfort, for all who mourn

All those whom we cherished will be reborn.

All those whom we Love but see no more

They are not perished, but gone before

And Lord keep them safe in your Embrace

And fill their Souls with your good Grace.

For now they see you face to Face.

Where they rest in peace, and rise in glory.

The Embrace of Enduring Love
    – by Wm. C. Anderson

Among all the precious moments
Blended with the swirling stars,
When was there time,
Time to say goodbye?

Never, never in recorded time
That erases the pulsing sky.
Never, even in the moment
Chosen for us to die.

Never found in every sound
That asks where or why.
Never will there be time,
Time to say goodbye.

Farewell is not a pathway
Nor portal through this day,
One cannot bid goodbye to Love.
No parting stays today.

In the Embrace of Enduring Love
God does not forsake tomorrow.
He paves our solitary path with Love,
That leads me past my sorrow.

To places in my heart.
Forever alive, forever in Love,
Forever felt beyond farewell,
Forever in His Embrace from Above.

To Whom Do We Belong? / What Really Causes Heart Disease / Friday: T. B. A.

Do not
conform to the pattern of this World,

but be transformed
by the renewing of your mind.

– Romans 12:2 

I will spread God’s Love to all I know and serve.

To whom
do we belong?

In our Creator’s Love for us
were we made,

longing for belonging,
seeking after the one
to whom we truly belong.

God
breathed Life into Humankind.
Yes,
 Adam and Eve’s lungs were filled
with God’s own Being,
His very Breath.

My Dear Friends,
knowing

to whom we belong
goes a long way 

in helping us figure out
who we are.

There is a central question
of Life.

Do we belong to
this World,
filled with vain promises,
illusions of grandeur,
and inescapable loss of Life
and everything material
that accompanies it?

Or
do we belong
to God?

“All the lonely people,
where do they all come from?
All the lonely people,
where do they all
belong?”

The Beatles

The Spiritual Awareness
that we
do not belong to others,
or even to ourselves,
but that in Life,
or in death,
we belong to God,
can lead to

a truly authentic and fulfilling
Life,
a Life worth Living.

 To see myself as I truly am,
becomes a vision
into the very Heart of Being.
It enables us
to find belonging,
and to discover
Truth and Joy.

“It is the condition of Love,
that as soon as one sees oneself
as Loved,
one starts Loving.”
– St Catherine of Siena

We have to belong
somewhere,
or to someone.
And,
if we really belong
to God,
then we are truly fashioned
in God’s Image.

As we absorb
the Beautiful Knowledge
of our relationship with our Creator,
we outgrow the small things
that clutter our Lives,
and we begin the Blessed Journey
toward the greater,

magnificent, wider World.

Psalm 100:3
reminds us that we belong to God.
The English Bible states:
“Know that the LORD is God –
He made us; we belong to Him.”
The Hebrew original of the last phrase
can be literally translated,
“we are His.”

My Dear Friends,
it is vital to know

the Spirit of God
dwells in
you.

“What gives meaning to Life?”

With a new understanding
of
to whom we belong,
meaning can be made
manifest.

We must know
to whom we belong.
Until we know,
we can never discover
inner Peace.

Understanding ourselves
and our relation to God,
will lead us to 
a fulfilling Life.
Belonging to God
is the most we could ever ask
in Life.

Life
is a Beautiful demonstration
of God’s Wisdom and Knowledge,
a very vivid reflection
of His Art and Love.
And when
we serve and keep this
wonderfully diverse and Beautiful world,
we Honor the Creator
to whom it all belongs.

“We belong to God
by surrender and dedication.”
Rom 12:1

To God We Belong
and
To Him We Return.

Goodnight.

“Living in this world with change all around
But with the prophets’ words,
I’ll stand on solid ground.
Even though it’s still hard,
with questions that arise,
Every day I will say:
‘ll have Faith like brother Joseph
and the strength of the pioneers.
I’ll be brave as a strippling warrior
and like Nephi persevere.
I will spread God’s Love to all I know and serve.
I will plead with my Father on my knees:
I will be
what I Believe.”
– Blake Gillette

What Really Causes Heart Disease
by Dr. Dwight Lundell
who is the past Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital , Mesa , AZ. His private practice, Cardiac Care Center was in Mesa, AZ. Recently Dr. Lundell left surgery to focus on the nutritional treatment of heart disease. He is the founder of Healthy Humans Foundation that promotes human health with a focus on helping large corporations promote wellness. He is also the author of

The Cure for Heart Disease and The Great Cholesterol Lie.

click here to read more

The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.

Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.

Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have per-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated – it is quite simply your body’s natural defense to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process,a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body?  Well, smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.

Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.

“Heaven and God are not high above us,
far away;
they are deep within us.
Heaven is not a distant country
where there are trees and houses and other objects;
it is a plane of consciousness within us.
Seekers of the eternal Truth
will realize their eternal Heaven
within their aspiring Hearts.”

Sri Chinmoy
