We’re used to think that things happen as we see them. When we look at a fallen tree, the first thing that comes to our mind is that the tree in question is dead or is dying either ways we know its fate. But if we set different eyes upon it we’ll be able to see that its story is much more than a simple fallen tree.

The tree use its roots to take in water and other essential nutrients. The leaves then use the water and carbon dioxide from the air, in combination with sunlight, to turn the water and carbon dioxide into glucose, also giving off the byproduct oxygen in the process.

If we take a step closer, we might see a few inhabitants enjoying their lives on it such as ants, worms, spiders. A deeper look might bring us to realize that these tiny creepers have built their nest under the bark for example. The big picture remains the same, a tree has fallen. But the other creatures which depend on it won’t appear unless we take a deeper look.

Have we ever watched a flock of birds flying in harmony? They all change direction at once following a random pattern. They are somehow synchronized when they do their spectacular dance. Have we ever seen one of them missing a turn, stopping in mid-air saying : Uh Oh, I’ve missed again. Hey! wait for me… ?

Have we ever watched a school of fish swimming as if they were following an invisible trail? They are hundreds zigzagging at the same time, at the same speed. None of them went astray! How do we explain this?

How can we explain this special bond between them? In fact it’s quite easy, they are all connected spirituality, they know/feel what their mates will do, so they do it too. They’re not the only creatures doing extraordinary things without an apparent reason.

We, human beings may have been able to do better than them, but we’re too focused on what we see, that those who can use that power are called Saints by some, Sorcerers in the middle age, Shaman…

Unfortunately we can’t prove these facts because they’re not part of the material world in which we live. In the Holy Scriptures God tells us that the Human Being can’t live without a spirit. The body is just a box in which the real person lives. Without it we wouldn’t be able to live on earth. We can’t be conscious of that unless we ask ourselves some questions without putting the easiest answer before us. For instance when we’re reading who is performing the action?

We read the letters composing a word, a word making a sentence, a sentence forming a paragraph, etc… when we process these, our mind translates what we read into a video or a picture depending on what we’re reading. If we’re going through a hunting magazine, our mind will show us for example the new outfit we’re reading about or the way an animal behaves according to the article. But if we’re seeing that outfit or that animal, who is reading the letters turning them into words, words into sentences…? If we’re busy watching a great movie on tv we’ll hardly write a perfect letter to our boss! The watcher in us is what we call spirit, the one who gets the intuition, who wakes us in the middle of the night for no particular reason to find that our neighbor’s apartment is on fire, who suggest us the right decisions, etc…

I suggest you to read The Power of Intention by Dr Wayne or Synchro Destiny by Deepak Chopra for detailed explanations. And you may read as well here a previous post on the subject.

What about… #19

Human beings disagree over many things here on earth, we have different opinions, different interests, different obstacles. Some say that the cholesterol is our foe, while others say it’s North Korea or even Terrorists,  but in truth we have only one common enemy which causes all our trouble and misery;  The Devil.

We’re all acquainted to “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” right? So that makes of us ALL friends. The problem arise when we aren’t aware that this entity swore to spend its existence to ruin ours.

Who doesn’t sin? Even the best amongst us sins, the difference is who has a conscience to repent and who doesn’t. The human being who doesn’t have a conscience doesn’t know that he has sinned, so he will keep doing the same ill over and over. He has no regrets, the devil is so close to his mind and conscious that he’s blocking any goodness that the person might have by his treacherous certainty. So half of the blame is upon us who accept the devil’s temptation.

Now who is this Enemy of ours who gives us too much importance to waste its existence among us?

The Holy Scriptures tell us a good amount of information on the matter, for instance:

Genesis 3:24

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”

Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”

The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly   and you will eat dust  all the days of your life. And I will put enmity  between you and the woman,   and between your offspring[i] and hers; he will crush[j] your head, and you will strike his heel.” To the woman he said, “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children, Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are  and to dust you will return.” Adam[k] named his wife Eve,[l] because she would become the mother of all the living. 

The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side[m] of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

 

James 4:7

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you

Ephesians 6:11

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

Revelation 20:10 

And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever

Acts 26:18

To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

 

Al Araf 7: 11-27

We created you, then We shaped you, then We said to the angels, “Bow down before Adam;” so they bowed down, except for Satan; he was not of those who bowed down.

He said, “What prevented you from bowing down when I have commanded you?” He said, “I am better than he; You created me from fire, and You created him from mud.”

He said, “Get down from it! It is not for you to act arrogantly in it. Get out! You are one of the lowly!”

 He said, “Give me respite, until the Day they are resurrected.”

 He said, “You are of those given respite.”

He said, “Because you have lured me, I will waylay them on Your straight path.

Then I will come at them from before them, and from behind them, and from their right, and from their left; and you will not find most of them appreciative.”

 He said, “Get out of it, despised and vanquished. Whoever among them follows you—I will fill up Hell with you all.

 And you, Adam, inhabit the Garden, you and your wife, and eat whatever you wish; but do not approach this tree, lest you become sinners.”

But Satan whispered to them, to reveal to them their nakedness, which was invisible to them. He said, “Your Lord has only forbidden you this tree, lest you become angels, or become immortals.”

 And he swore to them, “I am a sincere advisor to you.”

So he lured them with deceit. And when they tasted the tree, their nakedness became evident to them, and they began covering themselves with the leaves of the Garden. And their Lord called out to them, “Did I not forbid you from this tree, and say to you that Satan is a sworn enemy to you?”

They said, “Our Lord, we have done wrong to ourselves. Unless You forgive us, and have mercy on us, we will be among the losers.”

He said, “Fall, some of you enemies to one another. On earth you will have residence and livelihood for a while.”

 He said, “In it you will live, and in it you will die, and from it you will be brought out.”

 O children of Adam! We have provided you with clothing to cover your bodies, and for luxury. But the clothing of piety—that is best. These are some of God’s revelations, so that they may take heed.

 O Children of Adam! Do not let Satan seduce you, as he drove your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their garments, to show them their nakedness. He sees you, him and his clan, from where you cannot see them. We have made the devils friends of those who do not believe.
Unfortunately to turn things worse, lots of other demons are at his service, he’s not alone to spread evil around the world.

What about his entity? It’s not really described in any of the Holy Scriptures but the Devil isn’t a material being, he must be a kind of spirit with an energy capable of interfering with our own minds and lives.

So instead preaching hate let’s gather our strength to fight the one who really hates us; Lucifer.

What exactly is our ‘self‘?

This is a question which has been asked for millennia, many answers have been proposed but didn’t seem to satisfy the one who inquires. I’ve written two posts about it; Do we own a spirit and Is consciousness material or immaterial? If that isn’t enough, I’ll try my best to convince you about what I believe.

Every living creature has its outer shell and inner self; may this be a fly, a mosquito, a horse, a bunny or a human being. God gave us our inner self to help us, to guide us and to be a witness against our outer shell which is our body and brain. We are all made of two selves, either being aware of it or not.

The inner self is our conscious or soul if you’re a believer. No one hears that self, no one can witness it except the One who created it and our outer self. What we choose to show on the ouside is what others know us by. What the others define us to be; good, careful, cheap, cruel… we have chosen a character that suits us but not necessarily who we really are. But when we are alone and we don’t need to play the character anymore, we let our inner self take control.

Every human being is alike, it is a lie if someone tells you that it’s not true. We can’t let our conscious/soul be seen by anyone, it is as private as our own sins. Some people prefer to hide their tender heart showing only rudeness, being sure that they don’t care about “who ever it may be”, but as soon as he is alone he let his tears flow and anonymously he helps the person in need.

Our brain makes the decisions, works, speaks, thinks, makes us live our character… but our soul is the one who brings us back to the reality of this life when our brain stops to control us with the daily chores.

Some people say that they are searching for happiness, they will find it only when their soul/consciousness will be at ease. It is their own souls that are not happy, for some reason they’re not living what they are meant to live.

We will be what we were meant to be, when we’ll find happiness in our daily lives.

What is God’s relationship with you?

The question isn’t what is YOUR relationship with God but what is GOD’S relationship with you.

Do you even question yourself about it? Do you care?

Well, I do and I care, hence I question myself. Religious people tend to say “Yes I have a good relationship with God, I know that He’s there for me, I always ask God’s help whenever I need it….” that shows your side of the relationship but not His.

Most people nowadays forget that their life on earth is a provisory state of existence and that nothing belongs to us as God is the owner and creator of all. We merely borrow a piece of Earth to live on.
We must be grateful for what we have no matter the quantity.
There is no obligation that puts God in a state to grant you anything. If you have the car that you have is because God granted your wish to have a car. If you have that gorgeous outfit it isn’t thanks to your choosing skills but because God granted you the job that you have which allowed you to have that money with which you bought the outfit. The examples are countless.

Everything is connected. You lose your job, you lose all the opportunities with it. Don’t take everything for granted.
I’ve noticed that God granted me many blessings in my life for which I’m grateful. I know that I would never have had them if it wasn’t for His kindness toward me. I discovered that there is way for the human beings to make a bond with God. It is a connection that can be felt if you know how to find it. That makes you ponder on His relationship with you. He knows you more than anyone can, it is a reson for you to make a bond with Him.

God is providing us His attention everyday of our lives, the only thing He asks of us in return is to believe in Him. We can see that through History, and mentioned so many times in the Bible, Torah and Quran.
You might have heard this short story before, but I’m sure not this way, so read on:


Your Lord called to Moses, “Go to the tyrannical people. The people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear?”

He said, “My Lord, I fear they will reject me. And I become stressed, and my tongue is not fluent, so send Aaron too. And they have a charge against me, so I fear they will kill me.

God said, “No. Go, both of you, with Our proofs. We will be with you, listening. Go to Pharaoh, and say, ‘We are the Messengers of the Lord of the Worlds. Let the Children of Israel go with us.’“

Pharaoh said, “Did we not raise you among us as a child, and you stayed among us for many of your years? And you committed that deed you committed, and you were ungrateful.”
Moses said, “I did it then, when I was of those astray. And I fled from you when I feared you; but my Lord gave me wisdom, and made me one of the messengers. Is that the favor you taunt me with, although you have enslaved the Children of Israel?”
Pharaoh said, “And what is the Lord of the Worlds?”
He said, “The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, if you are aware.”
Pharaoh said to those around him, “Do you not hear?”
He said, “Your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors of old.”
Pharaoh said, “This messenger of yours, who is sent to you, is crazy.”
He said, “Lord of the East and the West, and everything between them, if you understand.”
Pharaoh said, “If you accept any god other than me, I will make you a prisoner.”
He said, “What if I bring you something convincing?”
Pharaoh said, “Bring it, if you are being truthful.”
So Moses cast his staff; and it was a serpent, plain to see. And he pulled his hand; and it was white, for all to see.
Pharaoh said to the dignitaries around him, “This is a skilled magician. He intends to drive you out of your land with his magic, so what do you recommend?”
They said, “Delay him and his brother, and send recruiters to the cities. To bring you every experienced magician.”
So the magicians were gathered for the appointment on a specified day. And it was said to the people, “Are you all gathered? That we may follow the magicians, if they are the winners.”
When the magicians arrived, they said to Pharaoh, “Is there a reward for us, if we are the winners?”
Pharaoh said, “Yes, and you will be among those favored.”
Moses said to them, “Present what you intend to present.”
So they threw their ropes and their sticks, and said, “By the majesty of Pharaoh, we will be the winners.”
Then Moses threw his staff, and behold, it began swallowing their trickery. And the magicians fell down prostrating.
They said, “We have believed in the Lord of the Worlds. The Lord of Moses and Aaron.”
Pharaoh said, “Did you believe in Him before I have given you permission? He must be your chief, who taught you magic. You will soon know. I will cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides, and I will crucify you all.”
They said, “No problem. To our Lord we will return. We are eager for our Lord to forgive us our sins, since we are the first of the believers.”
And We inspired Moses: “Travel with My servants by night. You will be followed.”
Pharaoh sent heralds to the cities. “These are a small gang. And they are enraging us. But we are a vigilant multitude.”
So We drove them out of gardens and springs. And treasures and noble dwellings. So it was. And We made the Children of Israel inherit them. And they pursued them at sunrise. When the two groups sighted each other, the followers of Moses said, “We are being overtaken.”
Moses said, “No; my Lord is with me, He will guide me.”
We inspired Moses: “Strike the sea with your staff.” Whereupon it parted, and each part was like a huge hill. And there We brought the others near. And We saved Moses and those with him, all together. Then We drowned the others. In that there is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
Surely, your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.

And relate to them the story of Abraham. When he said to his father and his people, “What do you worship?”
They said, “We worship idols, and we remain devoted to them.”
He said, “Do they hear you when you pray? Or do they benefit you, or harm you?”
They said, “But we found our ancestors doing so.”
He said, “Have you considered what you worship. You and your ancient ancestors? They are enemies to me, but not so the Lord of the Worlds. He who created me, and guides me. He who feeds me, and waters me. And when I get sick, He heals me. He who makes me die, and then revives me. He who, I hope, will forgive my sins on the Day of the Reckoning.”
“My Lord! Grant me wisdom, and include me with the righteous. And give me a reputation of truth among the others. And make me of the inheritors of the Garden of Bliss. And forgive my father—he was one of the misguided. And do not disgrace me on the Day they are resurrected. The Day when neither wealth nor children will help. Except for him who comes to God with a sound heart.”
And Paradise will be brought near for the righteous. And the Blaze will be displayed to the deviators. And it will be said to them, “Where are those you used to worship?” Besides God. Can they help you, or help themselves?” Then they will be toppled into it, together with the seducers. And the soldiers of Satan, all of them.
They will say, as they feud in it. “By God, We were in evident error. For equating you with the Lord of the Worlds. No one misled us except the sinners. Now we have no intercessors. And no sincere friend. If only we could have another chance, we would be among the faithful.”
Surely in this is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
Your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.

The people of Noah disbelieved the messengers. Their brother Noah said to them, “Do you not fear? I am to you a faithful messenger. So fear God, and obey me. I ask of you no payment for this. My payment is only from the Lord of the Worlds. So fear God, and obey me.”
They said, “Shall we believe in you, when it is the lowliest who follow you?”
He said, “What do I know about what they do? Their account rests only with my Lord, if you have sense. And I am not about to drive away the believers. I am only a clear warner.”
They said, “If you do not refrain, O Noah, you will be stoned.”
He said, “My Lord, my people have denied me. So judge between me and them decisively, and deliver me and the believers who are with me.
So We delivered him and those with him in the laden Ark. Then We drowned the rest. In that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
Your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.

The people of Lot disbelieved the messengers. When their brother Lot said to them, “Do you not fear? I am to you a faithful messenger. So fear God, and obey me. I ask of you no payment for it. My payment is only from the Lord of the Worlds. Do you approach the males of the world? And forsake the wives your Lord created for you? Indeed, you are intrusive people.”
They said, “Unless you refrain, O Lot, you will be expelled.”
He said, “I certainly deplore your conduct.” “My Lord, save me and my family from what they do.”
So We saved him and his family, altogether. Except for an old woman among those who tarried. Then We destroyed the others. And We rained down on them a rain. Dreadful is the rain of those forewarned.
Surely in this is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
Your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.
It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. The Faithful Spirit came down with it. Upon your heart, that you may be one of the warners.


Don’t neglect your creator. Make a bond with Him. Every humans can do it. Every humans must.

Foreign threats are good for the human race

I’ve been in the social media since ~4 years now. I’ve learned many things, made many friends, had a few enemies, seen a few people changing thier way of life, heard many sorrows, laughed at lots of jokes, read many people’s issues…. At the end we’re all alike. We all share our troubles to those who want to hear them. Some say that it is borring to hear people’s stories, such as “why do they share their story on the social medias? They shouldn’t do that!”. But it’s the only way to know that we’re all humans, we all have our share of anxiety and stress which may lead to depression. Last night I’ve seen the movie Predator 4. To cut a long story short, it is about mutated aliens who intend to steal Earth from the humans. At some point, two groups of humans who were enemies since the beginning of the movie, decided to unite to kill that Predator. That made me realize how stupid we are! Wars are tearing us apart for some irrelevant reasons, revenge is ruining families around the globe, hatered is spreading as it was once in the 20th century… I know exactly what we need: We need a spacial invasion! Yes. It is the only way to feel enough threatened for us to unite. There won’t be any more ethnical, religious or political divisions. We’ll be one human race against a global threat.
