Why Planned Parenthood must End. Forever.

23 Sep

Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist eugenicist, Margaret Sanger, who believed that blacks should be exterminated and that “the best thing a large family can do to a new baby is to kill it”. Great start.

There are a lot of (misguided) women who really believe PP helped them or even ‘saved their lives’. They are wrong. PP was never their ONLY option; there are thousands of free clinics around the US offering similar services.

Also the advice PP gives has never been about enhancing women’s health. It is about their own bottom line, in conjunction with Big Pharma.

They promote dangerous mammograms, not safer & more effective thermograms. A woman gets a free health screening, doctor finds a reason to refer her out for a mammogram (PP does not do mammograms in house) and the kickbacks roll in. Cancer is a business. Woman thinks they have ‘saved her life’.

Planned Parenthood should have been closed down long ago. And now there are videos (proven accurate) that show Evil on an unimaginable scale.

Even IF Planned Parenthood was actually doing SOME good work in counseling & providing services to women, the fact that they were also performing these barbaric EVIL acts on tiny living human beings … should negate everything else.

It’s like saying: Goebbels spent his days torturing people, especially women, but then he went home at night and read fairy tales to his children & played with them.
Even if the PP employees who chopped up living babies spent their afternoons feeding hungry puppies & ducklings … that does not excuse the time they spent perpetrating EVIL for PROFIT.

There is no excuse.

Here are my views on abortion which are interwoven with my view of spirituality.
I believe in reincarnation. I know that Yeshuah aka Jesus taught reincarnation although the Council of Nicea tried to expunge every mention of it.

With reincarnation, a soul is assigned to a new body, usually around the 16-20 week of pregnancy. The soul does not actually unite with the body until around the time of birth, but during the Mother’s pregnancy, it often ‘visits’ the body.
So when you destroy a baby, you are not destroying the soul. You can’t. But you are destroying the potentiality of that soul to unite with the body it was assigned to. Now the soul has to go back in the ‘queue’, so to speak, and await a new body assignment.
So you are destroying potential life. That is not good for anyones’ karma, but in very rare cases, it has to be done.

That’s why I believe abortion should be legal, safe, free … and very very VERY rare.

Most women would not choose abortion if they were offered, and understood all the other options available to them.

US couples travel to China and other foreign countries to adopt children. And we continue to abort perfectly healthy babies?? What kind of insanity is that? There is another agenda going on, particularly because MOST aborted babies are …not Caucasian.

As mentioned above, Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist who considered blacks a scourge on society. It’s primary purpose has ALWAYS been to abort black babies. I wish more African-Americans were aware of this, and join in the fury I feel.

Therefore, in my opinion, Planned Parenthood, conceived in Evil and obvious promoter of Evil, must be abolished. Gone. Never to re-surface again.

What will take its place? A medical healthcare facility for women that integrates the best of conventional medicine with HOLISTIC medicine. It’s services would be free, but because it is no longer in collusion with Big Pharma, it will not need federal funding, only modest State funding. Holistic healthcare, which can be used in 95% of cases, costs far less than conventional medical pill-pushing practices.

Women can come to these clinics knowing they will be honored and, if pregnant, informed of ALL their options, and the risks/benefits associated with each option. The choice then is theirs alone. No pressure. But also no abortions after 20 weeks unless the life of the mother is in danger. There is no reason to delay an abortion past the 20th week…unless you are growing baby parts for profit.

I’ll bet that would end 95% of abortions. And the money saved could be used to provide free education for those women who need it, to help them move on with their lives in a productive way.

That’s what a caring organization that works FOR women would look like.

What Yeshuah Really Tried to Tell Us

11 Jul

Written by Brandon West of http://www.wakingtimes.com
In this article we will explore how the true teachings of Jesus can be summed up by three little words: you are God. Some missionaries came to my house the other day and I was given the opportunity to come face to face with the religious mind, to discover their relationship to God, and to remember my own (non-voluntary) experience with religion.

In such a short time though it was, it was absolutely clear that the foundational flaw of religion based off of the bible as it is primarily taught today (and in general, for the past 2000 years), is that it teaches first and foremost that we are separate from this force called God. But that is a contradiction because the bible, specifically the teachings of Jesus as I will clearly illustrate, teach that you are god, and that we are all God.

So, I have taken it upon myself to convince those missionaries, and you, that you are not only equal to God, but that you are God.

Now if you think it is blasphemy to believe that you are God, not only does that contradict what the bible says, but that is a major preconception you have been imbued with that will restrict you from ever experiencing directly that you are god, which in essence is what a spiritual awakening really is: an experience that you are intimately connected with God, that you are love, that you are loved, that you are unlimited, and that you are God, because that creative consciousness is within you.

According to a recent study done by Cambridge, around 88% of the worlds population believe in God. 88%! That is 6.16 billion people around the world, according to this study, who believe in God. That is not a trivial number.

Yet out of these 6.16 billion people, for how many of them is God more than just a belief? For what percentage of that 88% is God a tangible force that they connect to on a daily basis by allowing the bonds of their ego to dissolve, and then channeling that force into all that they do, and all that they are?

If those people could center themselves in the awareness that they are God-consciousness instead of just believing in the existence of such a magnificent force, then we could change the world in a matter of months. It is only when we continue to live separate from this infinite consciousness which is our original nature, that we are powerless and that we perpetuate all suffering and negativity on this planet.

None of the major spiritual teachers throughout history were religious. Jesus wasn’t a Christian, Buddha was not Buddhist, and Lao Tzu was not a Taoist (and I am not even sure I would call Taoism a religion, simply because there is no dogma taught at all, just observation, alignment, and harmony with nature and the cosmos).

All of these spiritual masters did not practice religion, they mastered themselves in solitude by looking within and meditating, and as a result they discovered that they were infinite and connected with the universal consciousness. Only later did we call this consciousness God.

That is what the core of all their teachings are about: that we are all spiritual beings, and that we are equal to god, and by practicing such things as forgiveness, kindness, honesty, and introspection we can become the Gods that we already are and create a peaceful heaven here on Earth.

Because Christianity is the worlds largest religion (practiced by an estimated 2.2 billion people), as a case study let us look at Jesus. He said three things which I want to draw your attention to specifically, and I will discuss each quote in an effort to show you that you are God, and that if you practice a bible/Jesus orientated religion, then it is actually in alignment with the truth of the teaching to believe that you are God.

God Is Love
“He who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.” (1 John 4:16)

Jesus says quite clearly here that God is love. He is not loving, he is not like love, he literally is love.

But really, what is love? Moreover, what is human emotion?

All human emotion is energy. What we have labeled as various emotions is merely our endeavor to classify and label different vibrations of energy that we feel so that we can talk about it with others. When you are feeling really low energy, you say you are depressed. When you are feeling very malevolent energy, you say you are angry, hateful, or maybe evil. But according to Jesus, what would you say when you are feeling the highest energy possible?

You would say you are love, or, that you are God.

Interestingly enough I came to an understanding of my spiritual nature through a study of physics, specifically Nassim Haramein’s unified field theory. Physicists have discovered that the entire universe ispure energy, and that nothing is solid. In the words of Einstein,

“Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”

All that we are is energy, and that energy has no boundaries. It is infinite, it is the invisible force that permeates all space, and it is the force that connects all things because it is all things. Sound familiar? Everything in the universe is connected by energy, and that energy is consciousness, and that infinite consciousness is the source of creation which we have labelled as God.

When you oscillate with the vibration of love, you are resonating with the highest energy of creation which by necessity must be that universal and infinite consciousness, and thus you don’t just align with that energy, or channel it through you, you expand and become that energy.

This is a fact of physics.

This is what Jesus meant when he said that God is love. He didn’t mean that Gods love was something outside of you or separate from you, he said clearly that when you are in love, you abide God, and God in you, and thus, you are God when you are love. There is no separation. When you become love, you become God.

You Are God
“Is it not written in your Law, “I have said ‘you are gods’”?” (John 10:34)

This second quote of his couldn’t be any clearer. I am not sure how this is explained away in the major religions that use the bible, but Jesus is clearly telling each and every one of us, resounding to the world from two thousand years ago, that we are indeed God; that you are God.

He knew and he discovered within himself that he was not only connected to the creative force of the universe, the unified field, or the matrix of all matter as physicist Max Planck called it, but he realized that he was that creative force, and that all of creation was in a literal sense God.

Every person without exception is God. Every animal, every tree, and every star. It is only from the egothat we perceive separateness because we ourselves have become separated and disconnected from our internal connecting link with spirit that resides within each and every one of us.

We do not need to seek a priest to know God, we only have to seek our true nature and our inner truthand we will know that we are God. If everything in the universe is formless energy, and we are all connected by that energy, and if we are made up of that energy, and if that energy is the force we call God … how could we be anything but God?

Everything in that statement is absolutely true, provable by science, except for saying that energy is God. Most science (except for Nassim Haramein’s work) has not made that link between spirituality and science, but there are others such as Einstein and Max Planck who did. Einstein said himself, “I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.” Calling that energy ‘God’ is provable, but the only way to really know it is by experiencing it directly through yourself.

God Is Within You
“The Kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21)

So what Jesus is saying here is that the kingdom of God, heaven, the place where God allegedly resides, is actually within you. In other words, God is within you. I know, as well as anyone else who has ever seriously meditated knows, that when you go deep enough within yourself you will discover that you are infinite universal consciousness which some call God.

This is not egotistical. In fact, it is quite the opposite of ego, because when you go deep enough within yourself you also expand in consciousness and you become aware of yourself as an infinite and eternal spiritual entity, and your ego simply cannot exist in an environment like that.

Your ego is defined by your possessions, your body, your achievements, and your memories and so on, but when you meditate, you discover that you are something transcendent of all of that.

Truly great spiritual teachers never practiced religion, they practiced love, and sought universal truth. They practiced deep meditative introspection and discovered knowledge of the universe and the secrets of the soul within them. And as a result of this they discovered the path to enlightenment and god-realization. This is what Jesus was trying to teach us, when he said with exasperation, “Is it not written in your laws that I said “You are Gods”?”

Imagine what he must have felt like, being able to see clearly that God is within every single creature, and that every human is the embodiment of God and made in “his own image” in terms of pure consciousness, but then every time he tried to tell them and prove to them with acts that defied reason (miracles), all the people either bowed at his feet, or hung him on the cross …

There is no difference between those who bowed at the feet of Jesus and those who hung him from the cross, because in both cases they did not get his message. One chose to revere him, the other to eliminate him, but neither chose to listen to him.

They did not believe him when he said you are gods, and thus they chose to misinterpret what he was saying as some sort of metaphor, but it was not, and it is not today. We all have divinity within us, but it is not our personal identity, the ego, it is above the ego and it is called pure conscious awareness.

When are we going to understand this truth that he tried to teach us?

When are we going to understand that when Jesus said, ‘You are Gods’, he meant, that we are all Gods. Our true nature is not form, it is pure energy which is consciousness. We are God-consciousness who has incarnated into this level of reality, but we have become so identified with material form that we forgot our original nature.

All you have to do to experience this truth for yourself and discover that you are God, is follow the advice of Jesus from this article, and look within yourself.

Be still, and know that you are God.

To My Dearest Friend

22 Apr

WARNING: You should have at least half a box of tissues handy before reading the following. Animal lovers may need a full box.

To my dearest friend.

I stood by your bed last night; I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying you found it hard to sleep.
I spoke to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
“It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today; your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today; you tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I’m not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you; I smiled and said, “it’s me.”

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It’s possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, “I never went away.”
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew…
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over… I smile and watch you yawning
and say “good-night, God bless, I’ll see you in the morning.”
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out…then come home to me.

Jesus Taught Reincarnation

20 Apr

A book was written over 20 years ago that i believe is one of the most important ever written…and yet practically no one has heard of it. 

The book is “Why Jesus Taught Reincarnation: A Better News Gospel” by Dr. Herbert Puryear.  Why so important? Because this book, aimed primarily at Christians who think that a belief in reincarnation is somehow ‘wrong’, goes to great lengths to explain how belief in reincarnation was not only a ‘given’ in Jesus’ time, but Jesus actually taught it. Or at least tried to .. so many of his teachngs on this & other vital topics were expunged from the Bible at a later date.

“The Council of Nicea took the wings off of Jesus’ message, and replaced them with chains” –Whitley Streiber, http://unknowncountry.com.

Other reviewers of this book on Amazon have given excellent synopsis of important areas of the book, so I’m not going to re-cap what the book says. I just want to express my opinion that a great Lie was presented to early Christians as doctrine; this was done primarily or perhaps solely to keep ‘the people’ under control of the Church. One life .. one shot … do as we say, or you are forever damned. Very, very scary to your average peasant. No wonder those alms boxes were kept full.

Dr. Puryear does the western world a great service by explaining in an academic & well-researched manner just how wrong this idea of ‘one life’ really is .. and how references to reincarnation were distorted into the ‘exclusionary’ belief system embraced by so many Christians today: God loves you, Jesus loves you but if you don’t believe in Jesus EXACTLY as we (aka Catholics, Baptists, Methodists, Jehovah Witness, –insert your religion of choice here– ) do, then you WILL go to HELL forever and ever and ever. Which means about 80% of the people who have ever lived are there right now.
Yeah, God REALLY must love us!
Think for a second .. that is ridiculous.

So if you’re a Bible-thumpin’ Christian, stop thumpin’ for a minute, open your mind and read this book. Once you get what Jesus was REALLY trying to teach us, it is mind-blowing, and far greater than imagined. He was NEVER ‘exclusive’, He was trying to show us how to navigate this physical world and eventually ascend as He did. That takes way more than one physical lifetime.

Non-Christians will gain from this book as well, just be warned Dr. Puryear is writing mainly for Christians holding conventional beliefs. He is trying (and I think succeeds) to give them the REALLY Good News.

I hope Dr. Puryear writes an update to this book soon. In the meantime, please get a copy for yourself, one for your Pastor and one for your Church library. The sooner this ‘Good News’ gets out, the better for us all.

Thankful

One of my favorite posts from my daughters’ blog, http://ramblintraveller.com.

In all things, Give Thanks. 🙂

Normal life has set in.  I haven’t been doing anything special, haven’t been engaging in any new adventure or activity, haven’t gone off to some new exotic place…  No, regular life is in full swing.  I’m still volunteering at an animal sanctuary in Sangkhlaburi, Thailand so the regular duties of feeding, caring for, and helping to heal injured shelter dogs takes up much of my time.  And by the time all is said and done with the dogs daily, while there is time to do something new, I’m just too tired to think about that “something new ” and instead always opt for a quiet night of sipping beer on the porch while watching Sangkhlaburi street life.

I haven’t written anything on my blog in a while because in my mind I haven’t done anything “interesting”.  I wonder what exactly to write about and whether people would even be interested in…
