Simply Discovering that you are a wave in an Infinite Ocean …is a root of Enlightenment that will End All Suffering.

Bernie Taupin and Christianity

A legendary songwriter’s defense of faith (Bernie Taupin)


I’m more than a little perplexed. Why so many expend such sweat and precious breath to fluidize and demonize Christianity is simply quite beyond me. Surely there are infinitely more negative and disruptive forces at work in the universe than something that gives hope and comfort, let alone refuge, aid and medical assistance to countless millions. I imagine it’s pretty much the same old bag of rattling bones, the detractors and stone throwers bitch and whine while negativity and selfishness runs rampant in their insular worlds. When was the last time you heard of “The American Atheist Association” building schools and housing for the homeless and disposed on the frozen slopes of China or bringing in medical supplies and vaccinating poverty stricken tribes in the African wilderness while warring factions try to kill them? Just as an afterthought, “The American Atheist Association?” I don’t get it, if you don’t believe, no sweat, but why do you need a club? . . . .

Comedians it seems have always found an easy target in bashing God and religion. Sadly great comedians flail continually in the obvious, bogging themselves down in banality and paper-thin depiction. George Carlin’s “How can you honestly believe in a benevolent old man in robes and a big white beard sitting on a cloud?” remains uncommonly pedestrian. Pretty pathetic huh! I mean did he really believe that’s how most intelligent Christians perceive their higher power, give me a break.

Even my dear brilliant Eddie Izzard whose early stage shows contained gut busting monologues based around the Old Testament has succumbed to flat out ridiculing in order, one can only imagine to appear edgier and hip. His earlier work on the subject had such a charming childlike quality to it, a theater of the absurd that was neither offensive nor condescending. So much funnier than looking the audience in the eye and saying “Anyone with any intelligence can’t honestly believe in this stuff” Yea, well tell that to C. S Lewis, Graham Greene, George MacDonald, W. H. Auden and William Blake, illiterate, misguided fools every one of them!

But my complete disdain I’ll reserve for Bill Maher, someone who at one point in time I found in every way thought provoking, witty and a man whose perception of the absurd was right on the money. Sadly he’s set his sights on the Achilles’ heels of religion with such zealotry that it’s almost disturbing. Such caustic cynicism should be duly noted and examined for its mixture of puffed-up self-righteousness and tee-hee mentality, traits that inevitably led to a movie of such worthless content and low blow ridicule it defies all the laws of serious documentation.

I’m referring to “Religulous” a guffawing gallop through the whacked out fringe elements of organized religion. Chuckle at the screwball eccentrics and possessed antics of the left of center. It’s littered with all manner of urban legend and watery chestnuts like “The Virgin Birth isn’t in the Bible” (yes it is, check out Matthew 18-24) Heaven forbid he take on a real theologian, what would that have achieved, no laughs apparently just someone who could rip up his sound bites and shorten his box office draw. (It should be noted that the movie stiffed even to the point of him whining about it on the Oscar telecast.) All this I might add from a man that spends his evenings at the Playboy mansion!

Well, may I say excuse me but last time I checked there were weirdos and crackpots lurking in every division of of the human spectrum, crackpot athletes, crackpot rock stars, crackpots in the medical profession, crackpot scientists blah blah blah. Hey it would be like me making a documentary on political life and only featuring Ann Coulter, Kinky Friedman and Screaming Lord Sutch.

I mean what’s the beef, how’s it hurting old Bill. Why does all this get under peoples skin with such venomous results? There are simply millions of Christians out there who quietly and with the greatest dignity execute their faith and belief without resorting to madness, irrationality and human sacrifice. Lord Almighty there are extremists everywhere and it appears to me that the more I witness of these cynical atheists the more the likes of Maher and Christopher Hitchins are the ones who are starting to look crazy.

Infinite Discovery

First I discovered I was special and called out.

Then I discovered that I was wasn’t THAT special and was called back In.

Thus discovering I AM Boundless and Infinitely Special.
Universal and Perfect Oneness.
Nothing without the Whole Creation.

Mark 4:28
The soil produces crops by itself; first the blade, then the head, then the mature grain in the head.

Manifesting

Really there are no private thoughts. Superficially yes. In our mindless day to day function that is. However, The Mind of Christ in all of us knows the hidden motivations in every situation from an intuitive underlying spirit. Everyone is spiritual. Everyone has this intuitive vibe , and a growing number are learning how to recognize or process it through the filter of the brain… the brain being the reducing valve of the mind.
The brain retains the fear and Egoic programs for happiness which block the presence of Universal Love. These programs are developed and reinforced by the projected Dream world which originates from the seed of latent and unfolding wisdom …. which is the hard seed of the Ego.
Creation is complete … but the wisdom or understanding or realization of Creation is another matter…. which requires our Kenosis. The Action of Forgiveness.
Yes this is the ” experience ” of limitation and separation but ” knowing” the underlying Presence of Reality makes creation fun… interesting and what the Bible calls the Newness of Life.
The basis of this understanding is what we call the hard problem of consciousness. That is understanding the difference or more accurately the Unity of the brain and consciousness. No scientist can begin to say how the brain creates consciousness.
However by experience we can observe the mechanisms of the brain … which is generally the function of the five senses. And know that the brain and All matter is the projection of consciousness.
Creation in Genesis is the Son of God expressing Himself in a far country ( seeming separation or a Dream) and Returning in the Kenosis , which is the Cross of consciousness or in other words ” life over death ” demonstration.
AKA Spirit.
Creation and Kenosis is the breath of life as is the Cross and resurrection a supreme demonstration of this breath. The World was not created as an act of Love… it was created as a Call for Love. Seeing these two interacting Forces is the Keys to the kingdom.

Forgiveness is the experience of seeing and living in Newness of life or in other words the reflection of Divine Glory.

The alternative is the limited mind of past and future, or Time and Space. The Reality of Creation is Pure Presence in the infinite possibilities of experience. The alternative is being the captive victim of experience or the imagination of a limited mind.

What we are manifesting is a new way of seeing and a new presence. Consequently the elements will formulate to support this vision according to the Universal Mind of Unity. ( AKA Manifesting ) Go with the Tao in which your intuition freely cooperates. The Lord Mind shall meet your every need according to the reconciliation revealed in Jesus.

1 Corinthians 2:11
For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.

Someone may say that at death our spirit or consciousness ceases… however the increase of NDE since the 60’s refutes this… as well as awakening from comas, deep sleep experience, deep meditation and contemplative prayer which also validates this pure undisturbed condition. Which is beyond aggregates of the five senses. Beyond the function of the brain. Beyond Death.

What we are learning about this is that consciousness is the observation and eventual involvement with the Two Essential Interactions. ( The call for Love and the act of love ) The Tao and the Great Commandment of Christ agree. In that …your neighbor IS yourself …as well as All Creation. Selah.

The Baptism of the Dead

Where are my dead loved ones?

At death the limited mind is distilled into the pure spirit of its awakened consciousness… beyond the realm of human thought and preferences… salted by fire so that what emerges is a disembodied cognition that takes another form on its way to the Celestial City.

They are here now in your Presence by faith. Your minds are meeting. Here at Mt Sinai … the Holy City…They are awake and free now from imagining separation and are United in True substance of Presence now … ready to manifest in form on a mount of transformation when needed …Selah …. you are called to liberate every soul you have ever known in your consciousness by seeing them as they truly are…. Lights of Glory in All and for all Creation.

What so ever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Selah

Baptism for the dead ..,IS a meeting of the spirit Mind in the worship of The One Substance Above Every Name.

1Cor. 15 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?


Isaiah 6

“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts,
The whole earth is full of His glory.”

This is the Baptism of the Dead.

What is it like after Death?

THE Path of the Righteous… or the Seeking spirit grows brighter and brighter until the Perfect Day. Our God is a Consuming Fire and Omnipresent …which means Heaven is Everywhere. The Lake of Fire is Heaven because that’s where the Lamb of God and the Holy Angels are. The darkened spirits just have to come to realize this Truth. As You are Now.

1Cor.15:35
Some skeptic is sure to ask, “Show me how resurrection works. Give me a diagram; draw me a picture. What does this ‘resurrection body’ look like?” If you look at this question closely, you realize how absurd it is. There are no diagrams for this kind of thing. We do have a parallel experience in gardening. You plant a “dead” seed; soon there is a flourishing plant. There is no visual likeness between seed and plant. You could never guess what a tomato would look like by looking at a tomato seed. What we plant in the soil and what grows out of it don’t look anything alike. The dead body that we bury in the ground and the resurrection body that comes from it will be dramatically different.
You will notice that the variety of bodies is stunning. Just as there are different kinds of seeds, there are different kinds of bodies—humans, animals, birds, fish—each unprecedented in its form. You get a hint at the diversity of resurrection glory by looking at the diversity of bodies not only on earth but in the skies—sun, moon, stars—all these varieties of beauty and brightness. And we’re only looking at pre-resurrection “seeds”—who can imagine what the resurrection “plants” will be like!

The Doors of Perception

When the doors of perception are cleansed everything will be seen as it Truly is …Infinite. The artist looks outward and sees infinity in objects , realizing the object really has no beginning or an end. The artist simply comes to a point of recognition , a Still Point. The artist comes to the point of recognition that this is all I have to say for now and now is all there is .
The mystic on the other hand goes inward and once the veil of feelings , sensation and thoughts are seen through what remains is infinite awareness . Both the artist and the mystic come to the same infinite conclusion and the nature of that awareness is….peace , joy and perfect Oneness.
My limited perception goes no farther than this room but my spiritual awareness of that which is inside this room and that which goes beyond this room is boundless possibility. Furthermore the nature of awareness is accepting what is ….and truly perceiving that what it is …..IS Infinite peace.

In other words Creation makes no sense to our intuitive understanding of Gods Perfect Oneness without the Kenosis. And the Oneness of the the two is introduced and implied from the beginning of scripture with the promised seed and the covering of sacrifice. In other words this IDEA of separation never occurred in The Reality of the Divine Mind because Christ’s Word declares “He was crucified from the foundation of the world.”
🌎.
As a Re- Minder that God is One.
And that the Problem of Ego perception as the fear of Death and Separation never occurred….because from the foundational beginning this possibility of loss, lack and the death of God was seen as impossible from all eternity.

The mad idea of death was swallowed by life in a Holy Instant.

1 Corinthians 15:54
But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory.

Ephesians 4:23-25
and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.

WE PUT O N IMMORTALITY by a RENEWED MIND!!!!!!
Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. You must transcend by faith and include all creation before the transformation begins.
2 Cor. 5 For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, ETERNAL in the heavens. 2 For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven,3 inasmuch as we,…,, having put it on,…..,( Consciously we must put on this Oneness ) will not be found naked. 4 For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life. 5 Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.

11 Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your …..consciences…….12 We are not again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an occasion to be proud of us, so that you will have an answerfor those who take pride in appearance and NOT IN HEART . 13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; 15 and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.

…,, 16 Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer. 17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 18 Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,19 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

And it is from THIS VIEW Point that Perfect LOVE is experienced.
The finite mind cannot conceive, perceive or receive Infinite , Perfect Love.
This requires the Mind of Christ.

You see it’s All clear… you were meant to be here. From the beginning .
The Experience of Divine Love is Real….but this occurrence is Always within Perfect Oneness.

1 Corinthians 2:11
For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.

1 Corinthians 15:45
So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

So the Spirit is that which knows our thoughts and is aware of the feelings, sensations and perceptions of the Soul.

Therefore it is the first Adam and the last Adam as One … or in other words the mind of Christ…understanding that gives us freedom from the finite mind.

You can see this evolution of Christ consciousness throughout scripture.

Therefore it is this mind of Christ which enables us to experience all the possibilities of Creation or Life and manifestation or in other words the Eternal Glory of God.

The Spirit in this Ego Possibility uses the Experience of the Crucifixion to undo or set free the fear of death and all the possibilities of destruction that accompany that Mad Idea.

Reality is the Experience of Christ appearing in our darkened Consciousness.

This is the True Kenosis. This is the True New Creation . Aka Eternal Life.

Creation on the other hand as Perceived by the Natural mind or the Law of Sin and Death written by Moses is not the Reality of God but is a projection of our desire to be separated from God which is an illusion or the lie of the Devil. However Always within the darkness as represented by scripture the little Omnipotent light shines as a witness to what is true in the Abounding Grace over our experience of separation.

Our collective unconscious mind is powerful enough to create this perception of an imperfect Universe howbeit filled with manifestation of Eternity, Truth, Goodness and Beauty. But most of all the pervasive witness of Consciousness. Still it requires a miracle to shift our consciousness or spirit from our created horizontal or limited perception to vertical infinite perception.

When Jesus says the Father knows what you need before you ask … He sees the sparrow fall and your hairs are counted …it means be perfect as your father is perfect…See as He Sees… Perfectly….in other words go inward to the reward of your Eternal home and stay there perceptively. Go to your inner room and pray to your Father in secret.

He only sees his Son in whom He is well pleased. He only sees the Complete Perfect picture of Creation.
He only sees the falling sparrow and the loss of hair as giving glory to the joy that is always pervading our experience but is now and then hidden as a treasure waiting to be discovered. He only sees His Glory reflected in His Son …You.
See as He sees and yet with the wisdom of Experience and life manifestation in Christ

“I was a hidden treasure and wanted to be known.” Traditional saying of Islam in regards to creation.

Col.2:3
In him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

This is the meaning of the saying of the Prophet Mohammed, peace on him, ‘Whoever knows their self knows their Lord.’

Colossians 2:14
having canceled out the certificate of debtconsisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.

If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.
William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

We see only the shadows of creation….. even as Moses Perceived the Creation Story.
The eyes of our heart are opened to see Perfect vision like our Father… helping us to manifest the New Creation through Christ Mind .

Question: why does the son of God or Creation… the reflection of glory see shadows instead of substance? This is a leading question of the Ego to make separation Real… like ” when did you stop beating your wife? Truthfully…. Really…. I never have… seen anything but Perfect Oneness….your only addressing the projection of your own mind.

Love and Peace
