Resurrection and Reincarnation of the Kripto from Heaven


Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -from the Upanishads- Unless you know the emptiness and bliss inside yourself..you'll be a robot forced by the same emptiness and bliss trying to know itself..by pain.. ...inside your self also..trust me!..said the mahayogi! so listen to the mahayogi..,grasshopper from heaven...
.
In silence there must be movement, and in motion,
There must be silence.
 
 A small movement is better than a big one..
No movement is better than a small one..listen!
Silence is all the movement's mother..
In Movement you should be like a dragon or a tiger.
In non Movement you should be like a Buddha.  
-- Wang Xiangzhai(November 26, 1885 - July 12, 1963}
What is referred to as mindlessness is absence of the human mentality; what is referred to as mindfulness is mindfulness of the Tao. When one is free of the human mentality, the mutual sensing of the earthly and celestial is swift; when one is mindful of the Tao, effective practice endures. Swiftness of sensing comes about spontaneously, without cultivation, without striving; long perseverance comes about through effort, and involves action and striving. Striving and non-striving each has its secret; the distinction is all a matter of the absence of the human mentality and the presence of mindfulness of the Tao. After one has reached complete realization of the universal Tao, neither existence nor nonexistence remain; others and self are ultimately empty, and one enters the state of ultimate truthfulness, like a spirit. Here, it is not only the human mentality that cannot be applied; even the mindfulness of Tao is not applicable." - Liu I-ming


*note* very interesting site about the ,,soul,, spirit,, and stuff like that..
But be aware of ONE thing..grasshoppers from heaven..
The spirit is in your heart..and leaves your grasshopper severely  spanked  red ass about 6 months BEFORE you die.
This is from my personal experience of a mahayogi(loved in the 3 realms..respected in 10..celebrated in the 19th one also by myself,since there is nobody else there)
I can take any photo and determine if that person is dead..or about to die..or if he is a gay black man named 
George.
trust me..
This is what always puzzled me..WHY it leaves ..and the body still goes on..for about 6 months?
Since you are the pure SPIRIT within...?..why it goes away?
Maybe you are the soul also...
Truth to tell..you are just a resonator of the ONE.
So I figure...the resonator factor will abandon you first..then the body starts going away..then you feel some painful sensations in your ass...then ..as you walk to grab a cup of coffee..you say...Jesssssssussss...and drop dead like a fried potato..and forget about you.
The SOURCE of the resonator factor departed longggggggggg ago..baby:)
Isn't this funny?
My formidable Kripto Yoga(one of a kind!!) will explain all of your numb-nuts issues...I'll use bengay for a crisp realization of the truth..trust me!
 In any case...while the Peter Novak spoke half the truth(since he knows no better) the others also spoke also half of the truth(which bothers me..since they knew better)
Is obvious I"ll have to erect my 12 inch wisdom brain muscles to explain you.
Here it goes..grasshoppers from heaven..
Spirit is as spirit shines
Is in you..and is in him
Is in her..is everywhere
It is you ..you sense it's care?
It is you beyond the body
Not your mind..for your's foggy
It is truly the ,,I am,,
But the soul is the ,,I can,,
Surely you can ....said mahayogi
But the power has IT's duty
So resolve the  internal split
And the onion you'll meet
As you eat it..you'll get stronger
Don't prolong it too much longer!
Life is short...and soul or spirit
They laugh at you all times..believe it!
So find out yourself right now
You're the Kripto!..I say wow!
Thus composed the mahayogi this never heard stanza in 1 minute ...for he is the natural poet..and he can even melt mountains with his beautiful poetry..He loves Himself!..halleluyah for his wisdom..brothers and sisters..yes,Sir and M'am!

The apparent contradictory concepts of reincarnation and resurrection can be resolved by a very interesting theory developed by Peter Novak, author of The Division of Consciousness: The Secret Afterlife of the Human Psyche and The Lost Secret of Death: Our Divided Souls and the Afterlife. His compelling theory, which he calls the "Division of Consciousness Theory," is based both on modern science and ancient scripture. It explains for the first time how each of these ancient perspectives might be true simultaneously. Visit Peter Novak's website for more information about Peter and his research.

Novak's research uncovered extensive data from both scientific and scriptural sources that all pointed to the same promising yet highly disturbing conclusion - that the human psyche does survive physical death, but often divides entirely apart in the process into separate conscious and unconscious components. Novak suggests that the traditional "reincarnation" and "resurrection" hypotheses can, at long last, be reconciled by factoring the dissimilar scientific qualities and functions of the conscious and unconscious minds into the equation, pointing out that scriptures from a great number of different traditions already reflect just such a divided, "binary-soul" vision of the afterlife.

Basically, Novak's theory states that the soul body and spirit body separate after death. The soul body is discarded and the spirit ultimately reincarnates with a new soul body. After a large number of reincarnations, the spirit has discarded a large number of soul bodies. At the time of the "Final Judgment," a doctrine held by all Middle Eastern religions, the so-called "resurrection" will occur. Novak theorizes that at this time, all the discarded soul bodies will reunited with the spirit body. The result will be a world of highly enlightened people knowing all their past lives and their associated life experience and knowledge. Thus, reincarnation and resurrection are not mutually exclusive concepts according to Novak's theory.

Not only do elements of both classic psychology and modern sociological research support such a hypothesis, but eerily similar concepts appearing in Biblical, Persian, Egyptian, Gnostic, Greek, Hawaiian, Chinese, Native American, Swedenborgian, and many other traditions raise the intriguing possibility that this peculiar and unfamiliar "Division Theory" may actually be a millennia-old case of deja-vu.

If this extraordinary hypothesis is proven to be true, it will revolutionize the entire field of religion. A number of respected scientists, theologians, and philosophers are already convinced Novak's "Division Theory" will do just that.

The following are excerpts from Peter Novak's book reprinted by permission from Peter Novak.

The Science

Early this century, our scientists discovered and proceeded to map out the basic characteristics and functions of the conscious and unconscious halves of the human mind. But for nearly a century, those psychological discoveries have quietly contained an unnoticed surprise of incalculable significance to the world of theology and life-after-death research. According to the commonly accepted tenets of modern scientific theory, if the human psyche actually was to survive and continue to function after death, but did so in a divided state, then the two surviving components of the psyche would, due to their very natures, encounter entirely different conditions after death, conditions startlingly similar to those described in Eastern and Western traditions:

The conscious would completely lose all traces of its memory, but it would also remain free to go on to new experiences (in effect, reincarnating).

Its partner, meanwhile, would undergo a memory-review, and then become trapped in a dreamlike, unconscious heavenly or hellish netherworld.
In short, modern science has found that the conscious and unconscious each possess the very characteristics necessary for them to perfectly reproduce the millennia-old afterlife scenarios of Eastern and Western traditions, but only if they divided apart at death.
A bizarre coincidence? Perhaps. But an after-death division would also explain a number of extremely peculiar details routinely reported by researchers investigating near-death experiences, past-life regressions, and ghost reports.

The History

Such an after-death split was widely recognized in ancient times, being mentioned in Gnostic scriptures as the division of the soul and spirit, in Egyptian texts as the detaching of the "ba" from the "ka", in Greek teachings as the rending of the "thymos" from the "psyche", in Hindu doctrine as the withdrawing of the "vital spirit" from the "reasonable soul", and in Zoroastrian works as the separation of the "urvan" and "daena".

Such an after-death division of dual souls also appears in ancient Chinese religion as the splitting of the "p'o" and "hun", in Native American tradition as the cleaving of the "ni" and "nagi", and, more recently, in Swedenborgian theology as the parting of one's "inner and outer elements", and in Edgar Cayce's readings as the divide between the soul and spiritual forces (this same fundamental dicotomy is also reflected in the philosophies of Kant, Blake, Hegel, Tillich, Schopenhauer, Buber, and Sartre).

Just as with today's conscious and unconscious, each of the above traditions held that one of the two soul-units was more willful, objective, and intellectual, while the other was more responsive, subjective, and emotional. And in each case, the two soul-units encountered radically different afterlife conditions after separating.

The Christian Connection

Numerous passages within the recovered Nag Hammadi scriptures make it clear that such a division-based doctrine was not only present in the early stages of Christianity, but constituted the very heart of the mysterious Gnostics' theology:

As did the cultures surrounding them, the Gnostics viewed man's inner being as bipartite in nature, differentiated into two entirely different elements - soul and spirit:

"...without the soul the body does not sin, just as the soul is not saved without the spirit.  But if the soul is saved when it is without evil, and the spirit is also saved, then the body becomes free from sin. For it is the spirit that quickens the soul...."  - The Apocryphon of James 11:38-39, 12-1-6
For the Gnostics, death specifically meant having these two parts divide apart, having one's inner being sliced right down the middle at death:
"For such [death] is the judgment which had come down from above. It has passed judgment on everyone; it is a drawn sword, with two edges, cutting on either side." - The Gospel of Truth 25:35-26:4
"On the day you were one you became two.  But when you become two, what will you do?" - The Gospel of Thomas 11
They were even under the impression that Jesus himself underwent such a division at his death:
"'My God, my God, why, O Lord, have you forsaken me?' It was on the cross that he said these words, for it was there that he was divided." - The Gospel of Philip 68:26-29
To be "divided" was spiritual doom, while being "undivided" meant spiritual salvation:
"If he is undivided, he will be filled with light, but if he is divided, he will be filled with darkness ..." - The Gospel of Thomas 61
The story of Adam and Eve was inextricably linked to their ideas about death, seeing the separation of Eve from Adam as a profoundly seminal "First Division", the tragic origin of death itself:
"When Eve [the soul] was still in Adam [the spirit], death did not exist. When she separated from him, death came into being.  If he again becomes complete and attains his former self, death will be no more." -  The Gospel of Philip 68:22-26
This division and its reparation are themes these Gnostic scriptures return to again and again, often using the term "woman" to indicate "soul", and "man" for "spirit" :
"For they [the soul and spirit] were originally joined to one another when they were with the Father before the woman [the soul] led astray the man [the spirit], who is her brother. This marriage has brought them back together again and the soul [the woman] has been joined to her true love, her master [the man, the spirit]...." - The Exegesis on the Soul 133:4-9
Repairing this ancient division was expected to restore the souls of the dead to life:
"If the woman [soul] had not separated from the man [spirit], she would not die with the man.  His separation became the beginning of death. Because of this, Christ came to repair the separation which was from the beginning, and again unite the two, and to give life to those [souls] who died as a result of the separation and unite them." - The Gospel of Philip 70:9-22
This "Reunion of the Two" is a common theme in the Gnostic scriptures. But instead of always calling them "soul and spirit" or "Adam and Eve",  they sometimes portray the two in terms very reminiscent of science's "conscious and unconscious":
"When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside, and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female ... then you will enter the Kingdom." - The Gospel of Thomas 22
To firmly unite these two, they thought, would make a person like Christ himself:
"Jesus said, 'If two [the soul and spirit, the conscious and unconscious] make peace with each other in this one house [body], they will say to the mountain, `Move away', and it will move away' ... " - The Gospel of Thomas 48
Given Novak's extensive research on this subject and the evidence he provides to support it, his Division Theory should be considered to be one of the best theories ever devised to explain the mysteries of reincarnation and resurrection.

Understanding Spirit and Soul

The following discussion of Edgar Cayce's understanding of the soul and spirit comes from the great Cayce scholar, John Van Auken. Van Auken is a former director of the Association of Research and Enlightenment, the Edgar Cayce research foundation. He is editor of Living in the Light and author of books, audio tapes, and videos. He's an expert in Egyptian, Hebrew, and Christian mysticism, and is a skillful teacher of meditation from kundalini to his unique passage in consciousness. He practices the techniques he teaches and has become a popular speaker, leading retreats, workshops, and tours, and writes regularly as a columnist. He is also the author of several books: The Lost Hall of Records, Past Lives and Present Relationships, The End Times: Prophecies of Coming Changes, Ancient Egyptian Mysticism, Edgar Cayce on the Revelation, Spiritual Breakthrough, and Reincarnation: Born Again and Again.


From Edgar Cayce's deep attunement to the Universal Consciousness, he saw a clear distinction between spirit and soul; something most of us do not see. Cayce felt that it would be:

... best that these be classified, that these be not misunderstood in their relations one to another.

Let's consider these two aspects of our being, which are so often overshadowed by our physical aspect.

Spirit

According to Cayce, spirit is the life force, the vital spark that animates life. He said:

Spirit is the spark, or portion of the Divine that is in every entity.

But spirit is not just a force. It is a consciousness with individualness, though not nearly as individual as we are in our physical condition. Jesus tells the woman at the well that:

God is a spirit, and seeks same to worship Him,
[This is] a call for us to get into our spirit if we would really connect with God. According to Cayce, our spirit self is, has been, and always will be before the throne of God. It is perfect, unblemished, made in the image of Elohim, as recorded in Genesis 1. Cayce says that it is a thing apart from anything earthy, and does not descend into the realms of Earth unless we lift ourselves up to it and connect with it. Even then, it remains shielded from earthly influences.

That spark Cayce spoke of is the light and life of mind, or consciousness. Within the one, universal, collective mind of God are infinite points of consciousness, spirits like the Great Spirit. The consciousness of our spirit is the superconscious, a level of consciousness that is nearly indistinguishable from God's consciousness. Psalm 82 expresses the situation in the spirit realm this way:
God stands in the congregation of God; He judges among the gods; and later, You are gods, sons of the Most High.
It's important to realize that these sons are spirits, not bodies; male and female energies are combined. As Jesus explained:

In heaven there is neither marriage nor giving in marriage.

The phrase the congregation of God reflects how intimately connected the godlings are to their Creator. This collective nature of the Creator is also expressed in the use of the plural word Elohim for the name of God. The Creator includes all of life; nothing exists outside of the Whole. Fascinatingly, the author of Genesis changes the name of God in the second chapter to Yahweh Elohim, which most English Bibles translate as Lord God. It is this aspect of God that creates our soul self, different from the spirit self that Elohim made in Genesis 1:26. Yahweh Elohim forms us from the dust of the ground and breathes the breath of life into us, and we become living souls (Genesis 2:7).

Soul

Cayce sees soul as the developing portion of our whole nature. It is ever changing, growing, and learning, and uses free will to explore, create, test, discover, and more. Soul is the ultimate companion to the Creator; a true companion, because it has the free will to choose to be a companion or not. The soul is also uniquely able to bridge the gulf between the spirit realms and the physical realms, between our divine, godly self and our earthly self. The mind of the soul is the subconscious. It may operate independently of the Collective Consciousness of the Creator. (At least, it is allowed to think it does. After all, there is no way to actually be outside of the Whole.) Or, it may act in harmony and conscious at-one-ment with the Collective Consciousness.

Question: Mr. Cayce, what is the soul of a body?

Answer: "That which the Maker gave to every entity or individual in the beginning, and which is seeking the home again or place of the Maker. All souls were created in the beginning, and are finding their way back to whence they came.

Question: Where does the soul go when fully developed?

Answer: "To its Maker.


From Cayce's perspective:
The study of subconscious, subliminal, psychic, soul forces, is and should be the great study for the human family. Through self, man will understand his Maker when he understands his relationship to his Maker. He will only understand that through himself. What one thinks continually, they become; what one cherishes in their heart and mind they make a part of the pulsation of their heart, through their own blood cells, and build in their own physical, that which his spirit and soul must feed upon.

I found Cayce's comments on death and communicating with the dead to be helpful in understanding spirit and soul. For example, consider this reading:
When the soul passes from the physical body, the subconscious mind, which never forgets, is then as the sensuous mind of the soul body; the spirit or superconscious mind becomes the subconscious of the soul. While incarnate, the sensuous mind is what we call the conscious mind. But after death or, for that matter, even during sleep (for Cayce says, sleep is a shadow of death), the active mind becomes the soul's mind, the subconscious."

Question: Is it possible for this body, Edgar Cayce, in this state to communicate with anyone who has passed into the spirit world?
Answer: "The spirit of all that have passed from the physical realm remain about the realm until their development carries them onward or are returned [reincarnated] for their development here. When they are in the realm of communication or remain within this sphere, any may be communicated with. There are thousands about us here at present.

That's an unsettling thought, isn't it? But the key point here is the phases of development that may lead us back into incarnate life or on beyond this sphere altogether and out of the reach of communication. I remember a reading he gave to Mort Blumenthal in which Mort was regularly communicating with his deceased father through his dreams. On one occasion, Cayce informed Mort that his father had actually moved beyond this world, but Mort could still use the dream image of his father as a symbol for good advice. In another reading for Mort, Cayce explained that the waxen figures Mort had seen in one of his deeper dreams were the remnant casings left behind by entities that had moved beyond this world and the realms around it.

Experiencing Soul
A few years ago I decided to follow Cayce's example and try to get into a deep attunement to the Universal Consciousness to better understand the difference between my soul and me. Over a period of a month I came to feel (that's the best word I can use to describe how the knowing or understanding came to me) what the difference was. It was paradoxically a significant difference, and yet these two aspects of myself were very, very close to one another. One morning as I was awaking from a dream, I experienced firsthand the difference between my outer self and my soul self. I've shared this many times, but it seems appropriate to repeat here.

I was dreaming a fascinating dream. As I came closer to waking consciousness, I realized how full my bladder was and decided to go empty it, then come back to bed and process the dream. Of course, when I returned to bed, the dream was gone. I had absolutely no recollection of its content. As I lay there, wondering how this could be possible, the dream content returned! At that very moment I knew I had slipped back into my soul-self, my subconscious, and there was the dream. So subtle was the veil between my inner and outer self that I did not notice when I moved from one to the other. Yet, so opaque was the veil that I could not see back through it to my dreaming soul-mind. That was a great breakthrough for me. From that day on I worked at developing my ability to distinguish when I was shifting from conscious self to subconscious self, from earthly person to soul. But I also wanted to know firsthand the difference between my soul self and my spirit.


Experiencing Spirit


A Cayce reading explaining the Biblical Book of the Revelation helped me understand the nature of our spirit. In his explanation Cayce noted that twice in the revelation the disciple John saw an angel appear, whom he bowed down to worship. But the angel would have none of this, saying:

Do not do that. I am one of your brothers in this work. Worship God.

Cayce explained that that godly-looking being, that angel, was in fact the spirit-self of Peter, who had promised John that he would endeavor to contact him after his demise. If we could see one another in our true spirit-self, we would appear so godly that we would bow down and worship. Yet, our spirit-self would retain enough of its individualness to speak to and guide us, as Peter did to John. Amazing, isn't it? Of course, it is just this kind of talk that gets the evangelical Christians upset with us. We are saying that some aspect of us is in the image and likeness of God and is a godling within the one Most High God. The subtle but key point here is that we are not saying that we are God. Rather, we are a portion of God, our Creator. Cayce put it this way for Mort:

Know that not only God is God, but self is a part of that Oneness.


In my effort to personally experience my spirit self, I used the methods and maps that Cayce gave for going from physical consciousness through dimensions of consciousness to spiritual consciousness. I published an article on this in Venture Inward several years ago, subsequently wrote a book about it (Spiritual Breakthrough), and later wrote an illustrated manual (Passage in Consciousness). By practicing these methods I did experience what I perceived to be superconsciousness, a level of consciousness in proximity to or in oneness with God's Universal Consciousness. During these sessions, which can be compared to deep meditation, I at times retained a sense of individualness while in the collective, universal condition. But at other times, I lost all sense of individualness and only after attempting to regain a sense of myself did I realize that I had lost individual consciousness, which caused me some concern about this practice. However, Cayce reassuringly explained to the practitioners he guided that they would indeed lose consciousness at times but that if they kept practicing, they would ultimately maintain semi-consciousness or even full consciousness during the transitions into the higher states of consciousness.


For me, it was as if my consciousness turned off a gravitational force that somehow maintained selfness, allowing my mind to slip into an infinite vacuum much like the difference between a contained planetary atmosphere and infinite, airless outer space. I assume this is what the Eastern seekers mean by entering the Void.


Miraculously, I was somehow able to turn the gravitational force of self-consciousness back on and recompose myself in a relatively sane and Earth-relevant condition. But, as so many near-death experience people report, once having touched the dimensions beyond this world, you are never quite the same.


Some sessions contained imagery beautiful, ethereal imagery. But some sessions were simply a matter of feeling a shift from individual, finite perception to universal, infinite awareness. Some sessions were quite energizing, invigorating, and inspiring; while other sessions were as still, quiet, and lifeless as death. Coming out of one of these death-like sessions required long transition times before normal consciousness and physical activity could be regained. It could take me from twenty minutes to two days to get back to my normal self again, depending, I suppose, on many factors, including how much I really wanted or needed to get back to my normal self.


The effects of these practice sessions were profound. Though I still had my daily personal issues to deal with my weaknesses and strengths, and certainly my karma I always felt that I had seen the other side of the mountain. Therefore, nothing could keep me from knowing that all was going to work out well in the end, despite how hard or disappointing the journey might be now. Paradise did exist. I knew it firsthand.


Stuart Dean, the manager of A.R.E.'s Study Group department, had a similar experience. He explained that he simply wanted to attune to the Source, had about ten different ways to describe that, but decided to just ask God to do it for him. And He did. Dean described what happened.


I immediately found myself in a beautiful place, right next to the Light and Presence of God, where we are all living traces of His movement, yet still Him in essence. We are ourselves, yet also Him. I could feel it! All unique, but still Him. We all were open both to God and to connecting with each other, and there was nothing else except this! This was prior to inner and outer worlds, prior to space and time, prior to existence itself! This is the place where there are no limits, where peace is not yet disturbed, where surrender is natural, and where our life is wholly our relatedness to each other and to God. Then it came to me that these are our spirits, as opposed to our souls, which grow and develop. As spirits, we are eternally young, perfect, innocent, and happy. We are completely light and completely love. I felt like the first generation of the Sons of God, and that we still are, at our core, these spirits around the Throne.' Creative energies before creation; with feelings of perfect willingness to cooperate with every other spirit, knowing that we are all units of One Love.


I have always felt fairly close to my soul, but I never thought I would actually connect with my spirit. Now that I have, I can hardly get over how childlike and unafraid my spirit is, and how perfectly open it is to other people, recognizing them as Pure Selves, like itself. This is like having a little piece of God with me all the time.


I think this is the distinctive difference between the spirit and the soul. The soul is on a journey with many twists and turns in the road of life. But the spirit is high above the road, overarching it from beginning to end, and knows the peace that passes understanding, the contentment that is never shaken, the Paradise that is ours to enjoy forever. The great thing about this is that we may experience the Paradise while still on the road! The flesh is heavy and weak, but the spirit is willing and waiting. With a few simple techniques, a longing heart, and trust in God's promise to meet us if we seek Him/Her, we can take a break from the often lonesome road and enter into the congregation of God.

Understanding the Mind

The following discussion of Edgar Cayce's understanding of the soul and spirit comes from the great Cayce scholar, John Van Auken. Van Auken is a former director of the Association of Research and Enlightenment, the Edgar Cayce research foundation.

From his deep attunement to the Mind of God, that Universal Consciousness, Edgar Cayce stated that mind is the light, the builder, and the bridge to liberation and enlightenment. Here is his perspective on the mind:


The Spirit moved ... and there was Light -- Mind. The Light became the light of men.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth. How? The Mind of God moved, and matter, form, came into being. Mind, then, in God the Father, is the builder. How much more, then, would or should Mind be the builder in the experience of those that have put on Christ or God, in Him, in His coming into the Earth?

Each entity finds itself in a three-dimensional phase of existence or experience: the world without, the world within, and the mind that may span or bridge the two.



Mind is the light, the builder, and the bridge between spirit and body.


He explained that life, all life, begins in the spirit, which is the creative force that brings all into existence. Then mind takes this life essence, and builds with it. Finally, the physical is the result:

Mind the builder, the spirit the creator, the material [is] that created. Great truth! Keep it before you.
It certainly is a powerful concept to keep before us. All outer things have their origin in the unseen spiritual forces, then find expression in the mind, and ultimately appear out here in the physical. So often we physical beings think that the outer, physical forces are the more powerful. But Cayce frequently encouraged us to accept that:
... the unseen forces are greater than the seen.
If we want to change something, it must begin in the spirit and the mind.

That you think, that you put your Mind to work upon, to live upon, to feed upon, to live with, to abide with, to associate with in the mind, that your soul-body becomes! That is the law. That is the destiny.
He expands upon this:
Mind [is] the builder, the appreciator, the paralleler, the drawer of conclusions, the chooser....

And, Cayce says, mind is driven by the ideal.

The Ideal is Mind's Navigator

As you contemplate, as you meditate, as you look upon the Mind, know the Mind has many windows. And as you look out of your inner self, know where you are looking, [where] you are seeking. What is your ideal? What would you have your mind-body to become?

In a deep contemplation session on this teaching, my deeper mind saw the ancient boat of Pharaoh, with its twenty-four oarsmen and the navigator's hut on the bow. As I sought to know the meaning of this imagery, Cayce's teaching about the twelve nobles before the Throne of God in the Book of the Revelation came to mind. He said that they represent the twelve paired cranial nerves (24) in our own heads! As these nerves turn their attention away from worldly pursuits and toward heavenly ones, they bring a new heaven and a new Earth, meaning a new mind, a new body. As I reflected on this, I realized that the twenty-four oarsmen on Pharaoh's boat represented these same nerves and their ability to bring us across the barrier that the Nile River represented, that barrier between what the Egyptians called the land of the living, which is the place of the physically incarnate, and the land of the dead, the realm of the spiritually living. I realized that the navigator was indeed the ideal held as we sought to cross the barrier between this world and the spiritual.

That upon which it [the mind] feeds it becomes. The most important experience of this or any individual entity is to first know what is the ideal -- spiritually. Who and what is your pattern?

Cayce frequently said that Christ is the consciousness and Jesus is the pattern. Jesus, for Cayce, is the ideal pattern for humans to use to build their own mind -- just as one would use a pattern to make clothes from new fabric. Jesus exemplified a human at one with God and making that oneness manifest in his life among others. Cayce often noted that Jesus simply went around doing good according to God's inner guidance to Him. An ideal way for all of us to live.


We have covered the topic of ideals in detail in a previous issue, but for our purposes here, consider this from Cayce:

What, then, is an ideal? As concerning your fellow man, He gave, As you would that others do to you, do you even so to them'; take no thought, worry not, be not overanxious about the body. For He knows what you have need of. In the place you are, in the consciousness in which you find yourself, is that which is needed today, now, for your greater, your better, your more wonderful unfoldment. This is that attitude of mind that puts away hates, malice, anxiety, jealousy. And it creates in their stead the fruits of the spirit: love, patience, mercy, longsuffering, kindness, gentleness. Against these there is no law. They break down barriers; they bring peace and harmony; they bring the outlook upon life of not finding fault because someone forgot,' someone's judgment was bad, someone was selfish today. These you can over-look, for so did He.

Such a state of attitude, of mind, toward life sets up a powerful map for navigating oneself through the day's challenges and opportunities. This is an ideal, a navigational star by which to guide oneself each day. With this ideal, the mind approaches every obstacle, every crosscurrent, every undertow, and winds its way through them by holding to the ideal, the map set before us as the best way. This is the power of an ideal held by mind as we live life. Yet, as we grow and learn, we may see the need to adjust our ideal. Cayce encouraged us to write our ideals down, but to do so in pencil. As we gain a greater under-standing we see over the next mountain, we gain an increasingly better perspective of the whole truth, the way, and we adjust our ideal accordingly.

Thoughts are Things

Another fundamental Cayce teaching is:

Thoughts are things, and as their currents run they become miracles or crimes in the experiences of individual life.


For the deeply attuned Cayce, thoughts were as real as actions. In fact, during his readings from the Book of Life, he had to strain to determine whether the person he was reading for had actually done something or had just thought about doing it!

Thoughts are things; just as the Mind is as concrete as a post or tree.

... and the Akashic Record, the Book of Life, records them as such.

This is a hard one to hear. The first time I read it, it pained me to think how many times my thoughts had done harm to another and placed a negative influence in the Collective Mind. Watching our thoughts is important.

Watch Self Pass By

Cayce was once asked: How may I learn to know self as I am known? He answered:

Being able to literally stand aside and watch self pass by! Take the time to occasionally be sufficiently introspective of that, that may happen in self's relation to others, to see the reactions of others as to that as was done by self; for no man lives to himself, no man dies to him-self.... Be able, then, to see self as others see you. Stand aside and watch self pass by!

This is a powerful learning tool.


For Cayce, this was not just good mental advice, it was good physical advice:

If the body will watch self and the reactions of the various foods or preparations, and draw a comparison from what may be termed a combination of all the various authorities, then the body will find what is best for self. See?

Want to know the best diet for yourself? Watch how the various foods and cooking methods affect you. This information will be better than anyone else can give you, because it is revealed in your own body.

The Subliminal Mind

Dreams and meditations are two of Cayce most recommended means for fully engaging the power of our minds. According to Cayce, our subliminal mind will engage with our outer mind to review and discuss all influences:

In this there is seen both the action of the subconscious and subliminal mind and the physical mind, reasoning together, as it were, of the past, present, and future conditions as relating to the mental attitude of the entity; for, as is seen in the final analysis of the real Mind, the Builder, and as this is presented in the view of the dreams, the meditations of the entity in those days when the inner consciousness of the entity built in the mental forces those conditions as would bring the great joy, peace, and happiness to the entity, these, as we see, took on physical forms in the mental aspirations of the entity.


Seek within ourselves through dreams, meditations, and deep reflections, and our subliminal mind will convey the insights.


Even God will help, as seen in this Cayce reading:

Thus the individual entity finds ... that the first creation of God, the mind, is the way; or the way through which light may come to the entity from the Father. Even as He brought to remembrance the promise, for memory brought in the light of consciousness is the outpouring of spirit. (Memory is the mind of the soul.) Keep not only the body clean, the mind pure, but in the light of the spiritual forces as aid -- keep in at-onement with same. [The parenthetical statement about memory is Cayce's.]

Subconscious:  The Police

The only real guide that may be relied upon is that subconscious force that is as the police to the entity, both in the physical, material, and in the spiritual realms. And, as this [the subconscious] will guide and direct the entity, in that same way and manner as the police in their regular capacity ... in the physical life.

What a fascinating concept. Our subconscious is our conscience, our policing power.

That is, the police, the subconscious mind, represent the law that guides, directs, and that way upon which the entity, which any entity, may rely for the enforcement of that which will keep in peace, in war, in any condition, that straight way for the best interest of each and every individual.


However, even as physical police departments can become corrupt, so can our subconscious police become misdirected by powerful suggestions of self-doubt, self-condemnation.

In the same way and manner as these (the police) may become subject to all of the vicissitudes that are ever present within the conditions in life, so may the subconscious forces, misdirected, misguided, or seeking to belittle the self ... through its experience in the Earth's realm.

The only way to protect against this misdirection is to hold to a higher ideal that lifts us beyond our self-doubt, self-condemnation. God does not condemn us. God has erected no barrier. Self is the only obstacle to full enlightenment and reunion.

Levels of Consciousness

Cayce identifies three levels of consciousness or dimensions of mind: conscious, subconscious, and superconscious.

Conscious mind is the level that we are most familiar with. It is the level within which our personality and three-dimensional self develops and has much of its activity.

The subconscious is that part of our minds that bridges the outer self with the spiritual self. According to Cayce, the subconscious is both in the body, through the autonomic system, and beyond the body, in the soul realms of telepathy, non-physical life, and timelessness. This mind is the mind of the soul, says Cayce. As the mind of our outer self is the conscious mind and that portion containing our personality, so the subconscious mind contains our developing individuality, which Cayce identifies as our true self.

The superconscious level is the portion made in the image of the Creator, as recorded in Genesis. It is that portion of us that is a god or godling, as the ancient Egyptians termed it. Cayce explained that the superconscious is a thing apart from anything earthly, and only makes its presence known or is knowable when the soul-self lifts itself and portions of the conscious mind up into the vast, expansive level that is the superconscious. This is the portion of our being that Cayce referred to when he said that:

... not only God is God, but self is a part of that oneness.

To know the superconscious, Cayce says that one must learn to achieve deep levels of meditation. He said that if a dream feels more like a vision than a dream, then it most likely originated from this highest level of consciousness.


At death, the conscious mind is gradually absorbed into the subconscious (the mind of the surviving soul), and the subconscious becomes the operative mind, with the super-conscious now in the position the subconscious held while we were incarnate. Later, upon reincarnation, the subconscious projects another portion of itself into the newly developing outer, three-dimensional mind. Intuitions, knowings, and psychic perceptions come from the projected subconscious. Cayce explains that not all of the subconscious is projected; some of it remains in very high levels of perception and activity. But the portion that is in the body maintains the autonomic systems of the body (respiration, circulation, digestion, etc.) and the seven spiritual centers or chakras, which correspond with the seven endocrine glands.


We may feel that we do not know our subconscious soul-self, but we do, and we are comfortable with it. For example, when we are waking with a dream, but notice that our bladder is full and go empty it, only to return to the bed with no recall of the dream, then we have just experienced our two selves. One is the dreaming mind, the subconscious soul-mind, and the other is in charge of the bladder and the central nervous system that moves the body to the bathroom (somatic system). Yet, notice how comfortable we were in the dream state. Notice how we felt that WE were dreaming. That is because this is the true self, and we know it well. Yet, there is a veil that drops when we move outward, a veil that is opaque. The outer self cannot see back through that veil, cannot recall the contents of the dream, because it never had the dream and was only awakened when the physical body needed to move. Now you can see how we can die to this body and this world, and still live, still be active. Sleep, the shadow of death, is that condition in miniature each night.


Mind is our true nature. It is that portion of us that lives forever. What would it be like to live our lives as minds in bodies, rather than bodies with minds? Surprisingly, Cayce considered the mind to be a savior, a redeemer. It is that portion of our being that can mend and restore us. Let's engage our minds and fully awaken to our spiritual selves.
"The word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword and cuts so deeply it divides the soul from the spirit." - Hebrews 4:12
 

To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;



In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.



Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;



There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.



The true and constant must respond to phenomena;



Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.



When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;



When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.



When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;



Within the pot, the trigrams of kǎn and lí are joined.



Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;



Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.



White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak;



The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.



Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;



You wander so freely—who is able to know you?



Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;



Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.



It comes entirely from these twenty lines;



A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -
"The center of the cyclone is that rising quiet central low-pressure place in which one can learn to live eternally. Just outside of this Center is the rotating storm of one's own ego, competing with other egos in a furious high-velocity circular dance. As one leaves center, the roar of rotating wind deafens on more and more as one joins this dance. One's centered thinking-feeling-being, one's own Satoris, are in the center only, not outside. One's pushed-pulled driven states, one's anti-Satori modes of functioning, one's self-created hells, are outside the center. In the center of the cyclone one is off the wheel of Karma, of life, rising to join the Creators of the Universe, the Creators of us.

Here we find that we have created Them who are Us...

Red Pepper Kripto the Mighty


Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -from the Upanishads- Unless you know the emptiness and bliss inside yourself..you'll be a robot forced by the same emptiness and bliss trying to know itself..by pain.. ...inside your self also..trust me!..said the mahayogi! so listen to the mahayogi..,grasshopper from heaven...
.
In silence there must be movement, and in motion,
There must be silence.
A small movement is better than a big one..
No movement is better than a small one..listen!
Silence is all the movement's mother..
In Movement you should be like a dragon or a tiger.
In non Movement you should be like a Buddha.  
-- Wang Xiangzhai(November 26, 1885 - July 12, 1963}




*note* funny shaped Kripto from heaven..:)..no comments.
 "What is referred to as mindlessness is absence of the human
mentality; what is referred to as mindfulness is mindfulness of the
Tao. When one is free of the human mentality, the mutual sensing of
the earthly and celestial is swift; when one is mindful of the Tao,
effective practice endures. Swiftness of sensing comes about
spontaneously, without cultivation, without striving; long
perseverance comes about through effort, and involves action and
striving. Striving and non-striving each has its secret; the
distinction is all a matter of the absence of the human mentality
and the presence of mindfulness of the Tao. After one has reached
complete realization of the universal Tao, neither existence nor
nonexistence remain; others and self are ultimately empty, and one
enters the state of ultimate truthfulness, like a spirit. Here, it
is not only the human mentality that cannot be applied; even the
mindfulness of Tao is not applicable." - Liu I-ming

Deep respect for the perfect suicide bomber from hell

*note*One must have deep respect for these muslims suicide bombers.
Nothing like a good muslim man deciding ones for all he must be the best in his field.
And what is his field?.. to give lots of misery to innocents..bomb their houses..see the misery of flying body parts all over..all in the name of Allah.
One might think that the muslim professional suicide bomber is targeting only the people of other religion than his.. Perish that thought!..if they pay tribute to him..the christian or the hindu folk is spared..only the jew is persecuted,since nobody loves the jew,even if he pays the cash.
But..this is only one issue here,which a professional suicide bomber(if honest to the bone) always reflects about..is about what to do with those of his own religion?..spank them?..
After deep pondering..since he can't extract tribute from his own people in faith..he took the courageous way.. the way of Heaven,indeed.
To kill them all also..
But to be the best in your trade needs a serious insane mind..and the universe never conceived such a perfect suicide bomber,trying his best,at last.
His perfect thinking was..why limit myself to killing infidels ..since they pay me tribute..since it is written in the Koran..if they pay me money..spare them...and also,the perfect sadistic suicide bomber thought..
..why limit myself to killing my own folks?..the ones who believe in Allah?..
So..why stop here?..said the perfect suicide bomber?
This was his marvelous genius idea..one of a kind..why limit myself?..this cretinoid insane to the bone muslim man....pondered deeply.
I will wipe out all my family..this is the way of Allah.
Is a loving Allah...
So after much planning..our perfect suicide muslim idiot decided...to stick lots of lonngggggg grenades in his ass.
Also since he was dressed as a woman..he surely had lots of grenades in his fancy girly garments..if you're a suicide bomber..you do it in style..always paint your toenails with Allah name on them..

This way... success is guaranteed ..especially if your aim is to wipe out from the face of the earth your very family..all 7 of them.quote"He approached the militiaman and detonated his explosives hidden in his ass, killing his target as well as his wife, three of their teenage children, his brother and another relative, said the official. He could provide no other details including the number of wounded."

Again..one must respect this deep insanity.
Nobody thought before him that killing is not limited to infidels,nore to folks of your faith..but is open hunting season now... at large aimed at your own family...Kill them all..I say..I say kill them all..!!I say..why not?
So finally the love of Allah will shine thru,as you kill all your family.
All seven of them..
killing his target as well as his wife,by the way of grenades stuck in his ass... three of their teenage children, his brother and another relative, said the official. He could provide no other details including the number of wounded.
Respect is due to the perfect suicide bomber who knows the killings are not limited to anything..if you're insane..
You're insane to the end...and kill all your family.
May Allah give him the 49 virgins he craves for..
Indeed..he took seriously the suicide bomber idea.
Whole family wiped out.
I hope he created a new way of thinking...and by wiping out all his family,his very wisdom from hell would be included in the Koran..so we"ll know that there is no end to insanity of humankind, whatsoever.
Kiss to him..

The bomber entered the home of his cousin, the local Sahwa leader, on Friday night as the extended family was gathered for a meal, said a police official in Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, 115 kilometers (70 miles) west of Baghdad.
He approached the militiaman and detonated his explosives, killing his target as well as his wife, three of their teenage children, his brother and another relative, said the official. He could provide no other details including the number of wounded.
