Jesus said, "If they say to you, 'Where did you come from?', say to them, 'We came from the light, the place where the light came into being on its own accord and established itself and became manifest through their image.' If they say to you, 'Is it you?', say, 'We are its children, we are the elect of the living father.' If they ask you, 'What is the sign of your father in you?', say to them, 'It is movement and stillness"

About that belief system....us and the animals, right there
Humans are different than God's animals,[Scripture says they will all praise God's name in human language... on the last day], but
Focus for a minute how we're both creations, but one of us more special somehow!

If duality is a movie that we have been forced to watch. Why then, do you insist on fast forwarding to the end of the movie. Do you think that missing the entire movie makes you wiser.
Khadro-la: “We can know all about the dharma, and explain all about the dharma. However, if we never actually put it into practice, then whatever we do and however long that we do it, it does not transform our minds. Basically, it remains useless. Actually, quite the opposite happens. Our mind can become very stiff, and our ego grasping and self-cherishing becomes even bigger.”
Khadro-la, I asked, “What is the most important thing that we can do to achieve greater enlightenment?”
Khadro-la: “People try spiritually to achieve realization. The true realization is to achieve a kind heart. Other than that, there is nothing really that is useful. Nothing else. Realistically, there is good and bad. The things that we can completely trust, that will never betray us or fail us, are kindheartedness and bodhicitta.”
That will necessarily depend on what you claim as an ability.

Do you know that i have a standing offer of $10,000 for anyone who can prove that they have special abilities like what you are claiming here?
So... what do you need? I dunno how the proof end of things would go, as I don't seem to have much control over the paranormal BS that I have to slog through on occasion- but hey- I need $10,000.
