The Pope and Spirituality

Last night, I viewed a very interesting movie on On Demand called Agora. It was based on the true story of the Roman Empire’s crumble and the commencement and great position of the Pope’s power. I always wondered, “How did the Pope gain so much power over the various people over all continents, moreso than any country’s ruler?” It showed how the Christian religion, among the Gentiles, became political and no longer spiritual as Jesus probably intended for his followers to be. It goes to show that the spiritual evolution of humanity eventually vibrates at a higher level as centuries pass.

Many say that we are regressing spiritually as a human race. However, I disagree. I think the continued many disastrous events will awaken us. I also strongly feel that the popularity of homosexuality is softening our race to a more feminine one. Men overall are getting in tune with their feminine energy which essentially is the closest energy to spirituality. And honestly, although I do strongly feel that homosexuality goes against nature’s laws or procreation, I will never condemn homosexuals. They have forced our society to take a closer look at our dominated masculine attitudes which have caused much oppression and depression amongst groups of people, such as against women.

At the beginning of this movie, Agora, the Pope declares that women stay quiet, never speak up, nor be in the presence of men when important things are being discussed. These were the words read to the illiterate masses via the scriptures “spoken” by Jesus “God”. Honestly, I don’t think Jesus would have ever preached for women to not have a presence in society nor to be the property of men.

Difference Between the Soul and Spirit

The interchange of terms “Soul” and “Spirit” has caused much confusion and misuse in today’s society.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From a mystical point of view, the essential characteristic of soul vibrations is that it cannot be altered, changed nor destroyed. The soul is not subject to the constant changes in the material world.  For this, the soul cannot evolve into anything more or less than what it already is. To better understand this concept, let’s personify a battery as an example for the sake of the energy that it provides in mechanical action. The soul is like the ingredients that make up the “battery” and allow for life to exist. The spirit is the negative and positive magnetic forces that allow for the mechanical reaction to take shape and form. It is the Vital Life Force from which we are connected to God, and one might say “a part of God”. The soul permeates every single cell within our body equally without bias. The soul is neither good nor bad. Does “air” choose to enter my lungs versus your lungs? No. Air just flows. I am not referring to the physical handicaps that prevent air to flow improperly into, for example, cancerous lungs. The soul cannot evolve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is the consciousness that evolves by means of human experiences. ‘Sin’ is a result of our state of consciousness. The damage that we place on our earth is a result of our collective state of consciousness which can be considered as collective sin. ‘Consciousness’ just as in ‘thought’ is subjected to the material plane, and not at the frequency of the soul. The spirit operates in the material world. We cannot see ‘spirit’, but we can see its effects. Spirit is bound to the laws of matter.  And the vibrations of matter can be altered due to the constant modification of transformation within their internal structure and vibratory influences via the environment.  Change is the fundamental Universal law governing matter. For example, a plant’s vibration and growth is constantly being affected by its inner and outer environment. As complex as we are as dual creatures with a soul and material body, we are also subjected to these Universal laws.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our psychic centers have a direct link to our Vital Life Force. Some say those centers are the chakras – the invisible nervous-like system interpreting messages from our outer energy field. This psychic body acts as a messenger between the physical and soul bodies. Throughout the many ages, various religious institutions depicted this philosophy of duality via the icon of the trinity: the soul, psychic and physical body forming a triangle. Most disagree as to where the soul exists in the body. Christians believe its in the blood as in the blood of Christ and Holy Grail. Some theologians state that the soul exists in the head such as in the symbols of the halo around saint’s heads. Others claim that the soul exists in the heart as in some illustrations depicted by a sun in place of the heart. Some philosophical schools claim that the soul exists in the pituitary or thymus glands; whereas, others place the soul in the solar plexus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So if the soul can never be altered, one may ask then what is the purpose of the existence of the soul? I tend to subscribe to the philosophy of some of the great minds of all time such as Frances Bacon (Shakespeare), Einstein, Giordano Bruno, Copernican, amongst many others. The Cosmic reason for the existence of the soul is so that each person can reach perfection by the means of the spiritual essence animating him or her. The soul uses the physical body and all of its faculties to evolve in its interactions with the physical world. The collective soul of humanity uses the physical world in order to evolve toward its own ideal of perfection. Spiritual transformation of an individual (dual being) and over humanity takes place over a period of centuries or millennia such as boulders, diamonds, rocks, etc. The minerals making up the physical transformed objects do not change however, case in point, the mineral carbon.

From the most ancient times, it was known that the gradual evolution of our psychological behavior was based off the the cyclic renewal and regeneration. In general, the whole of our physical body entirely renews and regenerates itself every 7 years meaning that the cells you had in your body 7 years ago no longer exist in your body today.

Almost every religion uses the mystical importance of the number 7. Christians have their 7 days of Creation, 7 seals, 7 Churches, amongst many others. Hinduism and Buddhism have their 7 rays of the sn of Buddha, 7 states of Nirvana, 7 heavens, amongst many others. Judaism revere the 7 years of construction of the Temple of Solomon, the 7 branches of the Sacred Menorah, amongst many others. And Islam have their 7 seas, 7 words of profession of Moslem faith, and so forth.

In my spiritual studies today, I was reminded to reflect on 7 ways to achieve consciousness as to elevate my spiritual self.

1) Be aware of my body so that I can quench its appetites.

2) Be aware of my emotions so that I can control my reactions.

3) Be aware of my intelligence so that I can reason.

4) Be aware of my will so that I can take that reasoning and put it to use.

5) Be aware of my intuition so that I can ‘hear’ my inner self and God.

6) Be aware of my spirituality so that eliminate any attachments to the material world.

7) Be aware of my life so that I can direct my Consciousness towards Spiritual Evolution.

Lost 16lbs due to BeePollen

It was April 2010 when I noticed a dramatic weight loss in my sister and all her close friends. That was when she made me aware of a natural nutritional supplement called BeePollen. Because my sister was never into nutrition nor into a holistic approach to living, I never paid attention.

Meanwhile, months went on and I noticed that my weight gain kept increasing ever since 2 years ago when a cyst was discovered in my ovary. Cysts in ovaries are known to interfere with hormone levels thus affecting the thyroid or metabolism. The weight gain went from 145 lbs to a whopping 167 lbs by August 2010. I had always been skinny. And to now feel completely inflamed and uncomfortable within my skin caused me great discomfort. I use to be a gym rat but due to my increasing work schedule, my workouts dwindled. However, the lack of exercise and consistent regular proportioned nutritious meals did not call for this incredible rapid weight gain. Due to lack of insurance at the current moment, I felt like something else besides surgery had to give! I upped the ante on supplements since last year, yet still no avail.

In July 2010, my hubby, Ricky, decided to do research on the BeePollen supplement that my sister mentioned. Check out his research paper on Dr. Ricky William’s Blog. He made me aware of how beneficial this particular supplement actually is. I immediately ordered a bottle of BeePollen from the same place my sister ordered: http://zixiutangbeepollen.com and began taking my supplements August 16, 2010. At first I didn’t notice a weight change. However, my appetite decreased immediately. Soon the constant bloating sensation dissipated. It was only until about a month later when I noticed rapid weight loss.

Today I weighed myself. 153 lbs. And I have not worked out one bit. I do not recommend anyone to stop working out. I merely mention it here to emphasize that exercise has not been a contributing factor to this weight loss. Also my menstruation has regulated increasingly. Due to the cyst, my cycle had been every 23 days. For the past couple of months while on BeePollen, it has been regulating increasingly. Just this past month it went to a 28 day cycle. Also ever since the occurrence of the cyst, I would practically hemorrhage for 2 days during my menstruation with incredible clotting. This past month for the first time since before the cyst, my menstruation was bearable. I did not have to restrict myself to the indoors nor take Advil to suppress the heavy flow. My sex drive has also increased. A total feeling of wellness that I welcome!

Now I know the cause of my health problems have not seceded. And I know I must take care of it by getting an operation, which I am working on, in regards to health insurance. But in the meantime and even afterwards, this BeePollen supplement has provided my body with the needed nutrition to counteract the side affects of the cyst. And did I mention that due to the incredible amounts of energy given by this BeePollen, I have accomplished more in the past 2 months than I did all year-long!

If you are reading this article, I implore you to spread the word to your friends and physicians.

Rewards for a Mother

Football season is here. And as everyone around me knows, I am on lockdown due to my son’s football schedule. It’s his fourth year in the PAL League, and I still yearn for that freedom from responsibility. The sacrifices, we, mother’s have to make is not directly nor immediately fruitful. Furthermore, my hat goes off to all the NBA, NFL moms.

But when I see my son excelling at the sport that consumes most of his time as well as mine, I get goosebumps of joy. At the FBU camp in June 2010, the college football coaches alerted me to start recording my son’s games. They stressed that by the end of the 7th grade, he should have a great football reel put together. High school coaches begin the recruiting process at this time. So I went to Best Buy. Dusted off the digital camera that I hadn’t used in years and got it fixed. I borrowed my son’s telescope’s tripod and began recording while experimenting with yardage positioning. Apparently, the best spot to record is at the 50 yard line up on the last bleacher and not on the field. It took me 3 weeks to figure out how to import video, edit the movie, edit the soundtrack (delete curses from non-edited tracks) and export to iDVD all using Garage Band, iMovie, iMovie HD and iDVD.

I implore other moms to take time out and record your children.

I have posted my son’s first football highlight reel on YouTube. Check it out <a href="
