God said He made you in His image. Then, His Son says that THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS WITHIN.

so what do christians do? they deify "God" and place Him in the clouds and go "worship" Him on sundays at this building. they wait to die to go to heaven. HUH? then they wonder why they feel so disconnected.

heaven is inside of you, not somewhere you go when you die. God made you in His image. when Christ was asked what was the most important of the commandments, He said to love your brother and to love God. sounds like He's giving two answers, huh?

new years, valentines, thanksgiving, "christmas" and all the other holidays. ego appreciation days (birthdays). 40-60 hour work weeks. no wonder EVERYONE feels so lost and disconnected.

we've been so disconnected, from about every angle from what we once were. DISTRACTIONS DISTRACTIONS DISTRACTIONS. the kingdom of heaven is within. i want to be within. Not strung out on commercialized distractions and guilt.

we have been (and are continuing to be) pulled apart from our center. most of us have no clue WHY we are here and it's no one's fault. between dealing with poverty or financial hardships, full time work, family time and the distractions of living in a commercialized world and everything it takes to juggle all the balls, there's seldom any time to look inward. for now, at least.


i'm done with celebrating holidays. i'm done with the scatter shot spirituality and love. everyday is going to be christmas. everyday is going to be thanksgiving. every day is church but church is inside of me.

reclaim your center.

stop going to church. become your own church daily.
stop celebrating christmas. give gifts and spread cheer every day.
stop celebrating your birthday. celebrate life every day.

pretty much everything i see going on in the world around me is just a distraction. the truth is inside of me. the truth is inside of you. anything outside of yourself is a step in the wrong direction. everyone can call it thanksgiving and say that they're thankful for something but in all honestly, if people stopped cooking all this food for thanksgiving, people would quickly stop celebrating it. this isn't thanksgiving day. this is thankful to eat day. call it what you want but i don't see people talking about "happy thanksgiving" while exercising or working. nope, it's always calls/texts from people who are stuffed full of food, half drunk and on their butts watching football or sleeping. what a pathetic holiday. gotta love america.

we are ONE. by loving my brother, I AM only loving myself. by hating my brother, I AM only hating myself. the only way to heal myself is to heal my brother. when jesus said love you brother and love god, that's the SAME commandment. by separating the two in our language, it manifests through our souls. there is power in your words but only power over yourself in most cases. how you speak is how you will believe.

speaking from a context of lack will manifest lack. using time, language and the right intentions, you can really shake some things up, hence all Jesus's talk of love, the heart and intentions.

when you understand just how connected we really are, an idea TRULY can change the world.

don't try to understand it. just love it.

I'm not really big on holidays or birthdays myself. While they can act as a good opportunity for family and close friends to spend time together, they have been too commercialised for my liking.

I think you make a valid point when you suggest that we have been conditioned to focus on everything external and ignore what lies within.

Tis the grand illusion of those who control the rest of us, and it has been in place for thousands of years.
S&F because you have true insight in how we are supposed to be.

and

New agers have been saying this for years and what has actually changed in the world ?

New agers have been meditating recently (11:11AM [GMT] 11-11-2012 and 11:11AM [GMT] 22-11-2012) and so far this mumbo-jumbo new age speak has done absolutely nothing for this world.

This ONE world is a joke and a lie.

Look around you...everything was created from an idea. A thought manifested into a reality.
The problem is that there are far too many who worship greed and those who dish it out. There is no balance to all of us acting as one, let alone a way to shift it. In order for that to happen, we would have to let go of our need to possess " things". That has become what fuels our fire..not the good of mankind. That is the demon we worship and our ultimate downfall.

Have you ever just given a turkey to a homeless shelter. That should be on your bucket list.

Placing fresh pizza beside homeless people under the bridges downtown sleeping on flattened cardboard boxes...

That's church.

True. This is how the elite work. If they want a world war, they will get everybody angry by showing pictures of fighting. A perfect example is the recent fighting in Gaza. Look at the responses on ATS alone.
i now see it all as an illusion. However, according to an ink bowl vision i should have left this illusion on 4th Nov 2012. A week before Nov 4th, i had a tarot card reading. The first card was death. Yet something (beyond everyones control) is stopping a big event from happening.


The problem is that there are far too many who worship greed and those who dish it out.

So why not just remove the ones that want out of the illusion (film Matrix 3) and leave the material money lovers behind in the illusion?


we would have to let go of our need to possess " things".

Many new-agers have let go and are ready for their ascension to the 5th dimension. However, this 'false rapture' is not happening.

Its like everything has grinded to a halt.
