Spirits need Unions

    Spirits need other spirits.  Fortunately, as I’ve mentioned before, all spirits are connected.  Unfortunately, many of us limit those connections by not opening ourselfs up to them and letting them happen in a natural way.  We isolate ourselves and our spirits from others limiting their ability to communicate with each other.  And that is not only true of human spirits, but animal and plant spirits also.  Real tree hugging is not about showing love for nature, but about joining your spirit with the spirit of the tree and exchanging energy and information (all energy has information connected with it).  
    Highly developed spiritual people such as St. Francis have no difficulty communicating with plants and animals, as well as people, because they open up their spirits and communicate on a spiritual, rather than physical level.  Sometimes materialists laugh at the strange things some spiritual teachers say when they are giving public talks and in a sense, they are correct.  What really matters is what that spiritual guru is communicating on a spiritual level, not the words coming out of his mouth.  
    Another nice thing about communicating on a spiritual level: you can lie with your mouth, not with your spirit.


Random Thoughts 11-29-2009

I can’t believe the Christian groups that are complaining about the Gap ads again this year.  Last year they complained because the Gap didn’t mention Christmas in its advertising.  This year they do, but the Christian groups are complaining because they mention other religious holidays of the season with the line: “Go Christmas!, Go Hanukkah!, Go Kwanzaa!, Go Solstice!”.  There seems to be no pleasing these chronic complainers.

An interesting coincidence(?) I read about this week:  The Mayan calendar, the primary source of 2012 predictions, uses a long count called a Baktun and it is the cycle of 13 Baktuns that ends in December, 2012.  The Baktun is 144, 000 days and the number of people who will be saved in the rapture according to the Book of Revelation is 144,000.

The International Community of Christ has a new Cosolargy blog.  Take a look.

Make a gift of your life and lift all mankind by being kind, considerate, forgiving, and compassionate at all times, in all places, and under all conditions, with everyone as well as yourself. This is the greatest gift anyone can give.

A guy got caught with 1700 pounds of pot in his car.  He thought he could hide the scent by putting some limes in his car.  The police dogs were not fooled.

A criminal, about to be sentenced by a judge, couldn’t take the judge’s long-winded speech and told the judge to “get on with it”.  He got sentenced to 41 years.

A purse snatcher grabbed a womans purse and ran off with it.  Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t a purse.  It was a diaper  bag full of dirty diapers.


Scripture: The Bhagavad Gita 11:10-11

He appeared with an infinite number of faces, ornamented by heavenly jewels, displaying unending miracles and the countless weapons of his power.  Clothed in celestial garments and covered with garlands, sweet-smelling with heavenly fragrances, he showed himself as the infinite Lord, the source of all wonders, whose face is everywhere.

I like this short passage because it illustrates the importance of gems and fragrances in spiritual beings and, indirectly, the importance of using them to aid us in our personal spiritual growth.  With regard to the line about weapons, remember that the weapons of God and the angels are not swords, bombs and guns.


Rules and Randomness

    Many today believe that the universe is random.  That evolution is just the result of many random mutations, most of which don’t last long, but the beneficial ones, those that help a species survive, do last.  But that simply isn’t the case.  
    Chickens never lay snake eggs.  Whales never give birth to sharks.  Kudzu vines never burst out in rose buds.  Further, if it really was random, sometimes things would go backward.  The modern horse would occasionally give birth to a primitive horse.  A dog would sometimes give birth to a few wolf cubs.  But that never happens, because it really isn’t random.  The very statements that beneficial mutations survive indicates that there are rules.  
    The same is true of the universe in general.  Scientists can study stars and estimate when one is going to go nova.  They can calculate how much the sun will pull on a spaceship in order to control it’s speed and path.  If gravity changed arbitrarily, that would be impossible and space flight would be impossible.  They could not even calculate how much thrust a rocket would need to take off if everything was random.
    So, in short, the random fantasy simply doesn’t hold up under scrutiny.  There are rules, natural laws, patterns that can be relied upon.  And if there are rules, laws and patterns, than there is guidance and organization and that means some form of intelligence.  It may not prove that a Supreme Being exists, but it does prove that some intelligent guidance is in the universe.  You can’t have rules without it.
