GOOD FRIDAY - EASTER


Lecture by Neville
(Circa 1954 Edited by Jan McKee)

You know the story of Good Friday. A man is in a garden. Its night time. And one called Judas comes in search of him, seemingly to betray him. He comes into the garden, and its dark, so he asks the simple question, "Where is Jesus?" Then the voice in the dark answered, "I AM HE." We are told in the story they all fell to the ground. When they regained their composure they asked the same question, "Where is Jesus?" Again the voice answered, "I have told you that I AM HE." This time Judas kisses him and the voice said to him, "Now that you have found me, let all else go, but do not let Me go, and what you have to do, do quickly." Then Judas goes out and commits suicide.

Now when you read the story you might think that that drama took place in a garden. No. That drama must TAKE place in the mind of man. For this is all about re-birth. It takes a man, a normal man, a man of sense, but hidden in that man and bound hand and foot is the second man that rebirth loosens and lifts up, and that second man is God. So the mystery is all self, and he uses the word "mystery" no less than 18 times. He asked those in the Corinthians to esteem him as a steward of mystery. Then he said, "Great is the mystery, God was manifest in the flesh." Then he spoke of the greatest of all mysteries, the one hidden from the foundation of the world, "Christ in you is the hope of glory." Christ IN man. Not Christ in the pages of history, but God IN man must be awakened, and this is the technique by which he is awakened.

Now come closely with me and let me take you into the garden of your own mind. Right now just imagine you are in a sick room of some wonderful hospital, a ward. You see the case history. You heard the verdict of the doctor, and the man, seemingly, is dying. What would save that man from such a verdict? What would save him? A state of health by which he would rise from that bed and become a normal, healthy person in this world; that would save him. Now, look into your minds eye and define carefully the solution of a particular problem. When you define the solution to the problem, do you know what you are actually seeing? You are seeing Jesus, for Jesus means "to save." So the state that would save that man from what he is, is the state of health. That is his savior.

Society is not changed by example...

The truth of the following statement will probably not make us many friends in the New-Age/Spirituality movement... but it is the truth and we would rather be friends with the truth
Posted:

Society is not changed by example. Society may reform itself, it may bring about certain changes through political or economic revolution, but only the religious man can create a fundamental transformation in society; and the religious man is not he who practices starvation as an example to impress society. The religious man is not concerned with society at all, because society is based on acquisitiveness, envy, greed, ambition, fear. That is, mere reformation of the pattern of society only alters the surface, it brings about a more respectable form of ambition. Whereas, the truly religious man is totally outside of society, because he is not ambitious, he has no envy, he is not following any ritual, dogma or belief; and it is only such a man who can fundamentally transform society, not the reformer. The man who sets out to be an example merely breeds conflict, strengthens fear, and brings about various forms of tyranny. It is very strange how we worship examples, idols. We don't want that which is pure, true in itself; we want interpreters, examples, masters, gurus, as a medium through which to attain something - which is all sheer nonsense, and is used to exploit people. If each one of us could think clearly from the very beginning, or reeducate ourselves to think clearly, then all these examples, masters, gurus, systems, would be absolutely unnecessary, which they are anyhow. - Krishnamurti, J. Krishnamurti The Collected Works Volume IX

The Ultimate History Lesson...

I just realized I had not posted this Revelation of our educational system yet. I looked through our blog history and could not find it and because we are reviewing the work again, It came to my attention..

This is a FANTASTIC interview with the author of 'The Underground History of American Education' & 'Weapons of Mass Instruction', John Taylor Gatto. It is sooo compelling to listen to a master of  Active Literacy speak to us in a way that inspires the higher faculties of the mind to awaken.

Literacy is slavery to those who are taught Passive Literacy, as in our public 'fool' system. Gatto lays out the difference and goes into the history of WHY it is the way that it is and HOW it became that way. It is i 5 parts so make sure you watch it to the end as it gets better all the way through!

The interviewer, Richard Grove, is another amazing individual and has a website worthy of exploration www.tadgedyandhope.com

About Time... Movie Pic's

We had the great surprise last night of discovering one of our new favorite movies... About Time. It is a nicely paced film with quirky English characters and a wonderful performance by Rachel McAdams who's smile really adds an innocent quality to the story.

It is a story about time travel and some of the interesting paradoxes and cliche's around that topic, but in the end, it is really all about the Imagination and that is why we love it so much. The story sort of tricks you into a concept that we feel is one of the most important lessons to learn here in the Earth-school and that is exercising the power of the Imagination in the art and the act of Revision. The end of the film really ties it all together without getting into the esoteric concept and carefully leads into into a reverence of the present moment.

InJoy!

The following is a transcribed lecture that really lays it out...

 Neville Goddard 1954
THE PRUNING SHEARS OF REVISION

This morning's subject is "The Pruning Shears of Revision". I firmly believe that if you will wisely and daily use the pruning shears of revision that you will find there is no objective beyond your ability to realize. And I
mean that seriously, no objective beyond your ability to realize.

When I was a boy of seven, a lady said to me, "I have had a vision concerning you. I'll make it now very,
very clear to you--I do not know what it is you are going to do, but I've been shown you will do something
that through the centuries after you are gone man will not undo it. I can see it and through the centuries you
will grow in stature long after you have gone. And then three men will be mentioned in hundreds of years to
come and you will be one of the three when something is discussed that was done for man."

WOWfull Information!

OK... So, we are not being lazy here. Here, we post only the things that inspire us and it just so happens that Kate of Gaia has done it again!

This is a document outlining a very different vantage point and perhaps the last one you will need to understand. It reminds us of the mindset described from the Jed McKenna books... all of them worth a viewing. And with clear knowledge of our culture's current situation. We think it is important to remember her points that what we are here, in the physical realm, is mirrored in spiritual realm. So, pay attention and be discerning, as always. We are on our 3rd reading of it so far...

Kate lays it out here nicely with very little 'in-your-face' explitives to make her very important point. Read it here or go to her website www.kateofgaia.wordpress.com

InJoy!

An Essay by Kate of Gaia

“This entire game breaks down into its simplest component of sound and the creation of realities we experience and has been encased in the sigils and symbols of letters and words. This is the very basis of Phoenician law and the sonics and phonics intertwining where we have been blinded by the creations of visual light. In this realm of light, we are living in the past and at effect to all things visual which are the effects of sound where light, as a vibration, is merely a higher vibration of frequencies that began with sound or, more accurately, thought. If you want to hear the sound of creation all one must do is sit still, close your eyes and, in your mind only, say the word “rabbit”. Did you hear it? That, to me, is the root/route of pure creation and why our thoughts had to be carefully trained to be manipulated.
