In my own experience and understanding I wish to share what I have (and still am) learning about this very important topic.
Actually, what is below is a gift from me to you on my birthday.
Some will resonate with it . . . some will not . . . and that is how it should be.
I do not mean this to be “religious” nor “theological” nor “philosophical” nor “political” nor “biased.” It is merely a record of what I personally have learned . . . and experienced . . . but mostly . . . the insights which the innermost Holy Spirit continues to impresses upon by being.
From what I have discovered in my 40 years of spiritual search . . . I am not alone.
These same insights and concepts are a great part of all spiritual history (including the path of Christ) and are not limited by doctrine nor dogma.
Doctrine and dogma are two items which are always a clear signal of man-made manipulation for the sake of power and control over the bodies, minds and souls of others — and the Holy Bible refers to such sorcery as “anti-Christ” — which indeed it is.
And this political system of hierarchy always play directly into the hands of highly violent man-made Empires with sophisticated overriding robotic machinery run by ideological “cadres” who forcefully insist that their so-called “subjects” abdicate their inner morality and conscience to the “superior” ones (“bosses”) who give them strict demanding orders, false teachings proclaimed to be . . .”Divine” . . . plus carrot and stick conditioning.
Doubt this? Just look at some old movies and especially read the body language of old clips of regimented soldiers marching into total human depravity and murder — for the political sake of their highly mind-controlled bosses.
Then . . . the final absolute lie:
Its all the ultimate will and heart’s desire of “Almighty God” who only means to do you good by “straightening you out” . . . and “save” you from being tortured with fire for all eternity — which is what you deserve for not being a “yes man” to the “Holy Shepherds” divinely placed OVER you.
This certainly is not Jesus Christ . . . nor is it Almighty God.
Yes . . . there is a much higher and genuine purpose laid openly before you to explore and put to the test.
I was born on July 4th, 1942 and in this year (2017) I am seventy five years young. For me, prayer and meditation are the direct line of communication with Almighty God, the Divine Creator and Sustainer of all-that-is.
Throughout the entire Great Creation there exists a primary generating force of infinite energy and infinite intelligence –some of which mankind often even refers to as “inorganic.”
I personally view this term “inorganic” as a misnomer — since all that the Almighty creates (which is all-that-is) contains Life, Light and Love.
Throughout human-kind’s history various peoples have spoken of this One Primal Being who dwells within all things using countless descriptions and the subtle nuances and varied metaphors and the descriptions of many tongues.
For example, one of those terms which is used by some of our Native American brothers and sisters is “The Great Spirit.” There are many other terms.
None of them matter more than any other because the “name” of God — that is, what God IS — according to God’s Word — is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, PURE LIGHT, THE LIFE FORCE ITSELF and the composite of this at the root of it all is the underlying Ultimate Thought of the entire Great Creation and has been since the beginning.
There exists a prayer recommended by the Christ in the the Bible. Over the millenia however, the Bible has been politically and doctrinely altered countless times. This is a historical fact although many prefer to remain in total denial — as they also do with so many other things.
From my perspective, I find that I personally resonate best with much (but not all) of what was originally spoken and interpreted in the Aramaic tongue. Keep in mind that there is no substitute for ones own personal refinement of inner spiritual discernment.
It is no accident, coincidence nor mystery that the language of Aramaic itself — as well as the people who spoke it — has been greatly persecuted and there have been attempts (failed) to totally eradicate the language starting in 800 A.D.
Immediately below is the Protestant King James Version of the Lord’s Prayer.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we for give those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
(For Thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory, forever . . . Amen.)
Actually this last line was added later by the Roman church but was included in the KJV and other protestant Bibles.
I will take this all encompassing prayer line by line and after each line show a clearer translation — which is, by the way, much closer to the Aramaic version which was (and still is) persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church and her daughters, the Protestants — who were immediately gobbled up by the manufactured Roman (Empire/State/religious) Tradition.
My interpretation of this beautiful prayer are set apart in brackets and bold type. I meditate, contemplate, explore and speak this prayer to Almighty God many times each day.
My commentary will maintain the bold type but be in italics.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name.
[Our Mother/Father, who dwells within all, hallowed be thy name.]
The Almighty is neither male nor female — and — BOTH at the same time. There is no duality in Almighty God. “He/She” is . . . ONE. Almighty God is not only the Creator of all-that-is . . . but . . . ALSO the continual sustainer even as all things change — fade away — and transform. The underlying Ultimate Thought is eternal.
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
[Thy new transformed world unfold, thy intention be fully realized and manifested upon the earth as it is in heaven]
I do not like the word “Kingdom” for the following reason: “Kingdom” is a very human representation of the anti-Almighty principle. Why? Because it represents a “hierarchy” of top to bottom with those at the top exercising control over the “lesser” beings further down on the pyramid. With the word “Kingdom,” one immediately thinks of humankind’s political structures such as the Roman Empire, the Kings and Queens of Europe, the British Empire, the American Empire. Almighty God is NOT a dictator nor tyrant in any way, despite those ignorant ones throughout history who wish to picture and present the Ultimate Thought of the entire Great Creation in that way. To put it plainly . . . this is not so. Those who would do this wish to rationalize Empire as a positive thing — which it is not. And this is why they so vehemently advertise and promote the false systems they represent.
It is about — the unfolding/expansion of consciousness, both individual and collective. The ONE goal of this is to realize (become aware of) and then manifest (though living one’s life) more and more and more understanding of exactly what that Ultimate Divine Intention is and how to express it in ones own individual life.
This is the Christ-Life. This is “Christ IN YOU . . . the hope of glory.”
We are endowed by our Creator with free-will. We — you and I — are not cookie cutter robots nor the puppets of some “Master” pretending to be divine or some kind of “Divinely Designated Authority.” We are — and always have been — FREE to discover the truth of the Divine Purpose OURSELVES and to express it outwardly in our own creative and very unique way which is unlike any other being in the Universe.
There are certain Universal Principles (not man-made laws) for us to discover ourselves. Two examples of this are: you and I must experience the consequences of our own actions and love our neighbors as we love ourselves. There are many many more examples. Discover them . . . learn them . . . apply them. This is Almighty God’s great gift to us. He is NOT a “KING” but an ever-unfolding (eternal) principle of LOVE, LIGHT and LIFE.
Give us this day our daily bread
[We thank you for today’s daily bread.]
The Infinite Sustainer of All Things never denies us of what we really need to accomplish the aforementioned Ultimate Goals. Even if there is no physical “bread” before us on this day we give thanks for our current situation because God’s sustenance is far more than physical. Tomorrow we will again thank God in the same manner. We learn to live in the moment and to be very aware that all things change — but God’s supply is infinite.
and forgive us of our trespasses, as we for give those who trespass against us.
[and for forgiving us of our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us]
This is that Universal Principle of cause and effect. If we hold unforgiveness toward others for the wrongs which they did . . . that very holding produces unresolved pain within us because the very tightly clutching resentment — that hurt only serves to interrupt our spiritual flow of communications with the Almighty deep within our being.
I should also point out that “forgiveness” does NOT mean that we condone the evil acts of others . . . but . . . that forgiveness is a recognition and understanding that our own holding on of unforgiveness is an often un-admitted expression of our desire for personal vengeance and therefore a total ignorance of the Universal Principle of Cause and effect. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Jesus consciously realized that he and the “Father” are ONE . . . that is . . . NO SEPARATION whatsoever. The Christ within your being is exactly the same.
It was always there . . . wake up to it . . . become consciously aware of it . . . do not ignore it — for it is the very Creator and continual Sustainer of your entire being.
And lead us not into temptation.
[Thank you for leading us through all of life’s situations and circumstances and especially into a deeper and more profound understanding of your Eternal Purpose.]
No — Almighty God NEVER leads anyone into temptation . . . ever. There is no need to ask the Almighty to do something completely foreign to the Divine nature. It is WE who lead ourselves into temptation . . . always. Even if some other being persuades us . . . it is WE who make the FREE-WILL decision to go along with it. It is NEVER GOD “leading” us toward self-destruction. He gave is all FREE-WILL and it is WE who decide that issue — we decide rightly — or wrongly. But . . . when one learns to “listen” to the “still, small voice within” and pay heed to it and not be deceived by any other “voice,” the Great Spirit continually guides us — that is — leads us toward a deeper and more profound understanding of the Universal Purpose.
Through proper deep meditation and the gradual and increasing conscious awareness of the Truth which is an endemic quality expressing everywhere in the entire Great Creation. Then . . . the continual thanksgiving through prayer. Meditation is communion with the I AM PRESENCE. Prayer is the expression of ones thanksgiving and deep appreciation of what the I AM PRESENCE is all about — especially the Divine Purpose which leads to the Truth of who a specific individual person really is and their own part in Almighty God’s Eternal Intention.
And . . . the composite of that Truth is . . . God’s Ultimate Thought, Divine Intention, Will, Eternal Delight, Universal Purpose . . . and . . . that is . . . Unconditional Love, the Eternal Pure Light, all Life itself. We (presently) mortal beings can consciously and purposefully align our free-will with this — and thus, begin the process of ongoing conscious awareness. This ongoing unfoldment has times of sudden breakthroughs — like profound AHAs. We are in one of those right at this moment. Outwardly, the world appears to be a violent mish-mash of confusion, insanity and even panic as an unparalleled event unfolds very rapidly. Christ returns. That is the innermost Truth and many many people do recognized that.
Empires, Tyrants, Kings and Queens see their empires totally disintegrating and are sorely afraid . . . and so, they use the only means they have ever known to maintain their power-over those whom they consider to be “their subjects or their constituency.” These techniques of power maintenance include . . . mind-control of the masses, propaganda, lies, deception, obfuscation and of course . . . manipulative economic wars.
In spite of all those superficial appearances and the utter madness they demonstrate . . . there will be “Peace upon the earth and among all beings.” It is an absolute surety.
As we align with God Almighty’s Universal Intention . . . we find out who and what we are and we discover how our own creative part becomes manifested to further explain and reveal the Divine Intention to a new Transformed World about to be born. Peace on earth and goodwill toward men.
This broadened consciousness then qualifies humanity to reach out beyond the earth to other worlds in order to better continue this infinite unfoldment and self-discovery.
Perfection is NOT a noun . . . it is an ACTIVE VERB . . . it is . . . eternally ongoing. Yes, even in heaven.
but deliver us from evil.
[and thank you, for delivering us from the evil one]
It is already done . . . if you can believe and accept it.
What is “evil” anyway?
There are those who proclaim that “evil” does not exist. Well . . . ultimately “evil” is a non-entity — an unreality — but in this temporary dualistic world, unreality is a damaging and hurtful misery.
Even in this — there lies the opportunity offered to all for the damaging and hurtful misery to be overcome — thus strengthening the spiritual resolve of those seekers of the Most High.
So, what is the definition of “evil.” That word means: whatever is moving willfully or ignorantly in the opposite direction of Almighty God’s Ultimate Thought, i.e. the Eternal Divine Purpose of God who created all but gave his creatures free-will that they might discover innate Truth through all the veils of forgetfulness.
Evil is a willful egoistic departure from the Divine Intention and is always due to the pretended ignorance of that Eternal flow toward the ongoing further unfoldment of LOVE, LIGHT and LIFE.
Therefore, from its inception it is self-destructing.
Why then, does Almighty God even allow evil to be?
It is an act of mercy in the hope that those who do evil would learn from their mistakes along their way and have an AHA while catching enough of a glimmer of Truth that they would re-think their actions and renounce their self-destructive patterns in favor of uplifting Life instead of destroying it. It is their responsibility to make this definite decision — NO ONE will (nor can) do that for them. That is called “Personal Responsibility.”
And it is not that “God’s patience” runs out . . . but . . . the natural principle of cause and effect eventually comes into effect no matter what clever tricks an egotistical conceited evil one might attempt to prevent that from happening.
It is inevitable.
In the Biblical book of James it is written: “resist the devil and he will flee from you.” I have personally found this to be true. Evil thoughts come from ones own mind and they trick the senses. Non-consent is the key. Without it . . . the Principle of Cause and Effect will come into play negatively. And I have received those consequences — also even as you reading this have also.
For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory . . . amen
[for You Almighty God are Unconditional Love, the pure eternal Light, and the Life Principle itself. You are the Great I AM at the very root of ALL BEING. You are the Ultimate Thought and the Eternal Divine Creator of All-That-Is . . . amen]
The most important thing for all of us is that we understand who Almighty God is . . . and the Christ . . . who is Almighty God manifested and expressed right here with profound action in this three dimensional world.
May we all move daily toward personal discipleship with the genuine Christ . . .
