To accept and understand what the Atonement is, we must first accept what it is not.
The Atonement is not mans idea. It is Gods Idea and releases you from all your past mistakes. The Atonement releases us from the hell we have made of our lives.

The Atonement is not a means whereby you correct your past mistakes or “sins.” Jesus Christ did this for you in His resurrection.

The Atonement does not require that you do anything. It does however require that you let the Holy Spirit do everything for you.
For example in the case of unwanted drug usage. You do not quit because it is “bad, wicked or evil” you stop because the Holy Spirit has conveyed its insanity to you. No one can be addicted to anything because God did not create addiction. Addiction is a concept, that once believed, becomes diabolical until you learn it is Not true.
Why would anyone believe something that is not true? Because they were Told that it was true by someone they believed.

Drugs only make the body feel different, not “better”, “different.” The reason for the insanity is this: the mind does not like the way it feels so it attacks the body in an attempt to feel better. This is why drugs don’t work. It is a mental illness projected onto the body. The body is not the problem the mind is.
Unconditional forgiveness releases the burden of the body by giving you peace where once you believed only drugs could do that and they did not last.

However, Christ does last. He is in your mind as your higher spirit in a very literal sense. You must seek for Him to know that He is there. This is foolishness and “frightening” to your ego. Your ego is that aspect of your personality that has been trained by this world. There is another world that Jesus Christ refers to as heaven. This heaven is obtained by love. When you unconditionally forgive another, you are sending love to them and yourself.

This Self is the Son of God. You are one with everything and everyone but are unaware because of the belief in enemies. The concept “enemies” is as insane a concept as is “addiction.” When you no longer believe you have enemies you will see that everyone comes to you with merciful intent. Same with any “addiction” when you no longer believe you are “addicted” you will not be. YOU ARE NOT ALONE IS THIS PROCESS OF ATONEMENT.
The blessed Lord Jesus Christ hears your Every request as He is one with the Father.

We must as Born Again Christians unite under the resurrected Christ and not the crucified Jesus. Jesus is not crucified. He has resurrected and is where He told His disciples He was going to resurrect to, WITHIN them. The Kingdom of God is WITHIN your current consciousness now unknown by you. We must be lead out of hell by the Holy Spirit of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ.

Even as these words are being written my ego or trained personality recoils or fears the thought of this world not being eternally real. Because if it (this world) is not eternally real then nothing I believe about this world can be real. Jesus tells His disciples be in the world but not of it. The reason is simply it is not eternal.

To experience the Kingdom of Heaven here now we must love everyone the same. I must love my wife, my son, my daughter, my brothers and sisters, and my enemies the same. The ego or trained personality cannot do this with out Help. Help we have in the form of the Holy Spirit.

This letter is an attempt to convey the spirit of the teachings of Jesus Christ. He tells us that we are blind and can’t see. He tells us that He has overcome our deafness and blindness. This overcoming of Christ is the Atonement of Jesus.

To know the truth that sets us free we must seek until we have found the truth within the Kingdom of God. This finding is Salvation. Everyone is already “saved” even the atheist. It is the awareness that you are saved by Jesus Christ that brings you eternal joy.

Christians for the past 400 years have become greatly deceived about Christ’s resurrection due to their generational family beliefs that were not true. King James did not give us all the information in his book of books from 1611.

In the book of Luke chapter seventeen verses twenty and twenty-one  Jesus is teaching the Sanhedrin that Gods Kingdom is within them. Not after you die as king James’ version would lead us to believe.
Because of the king James version we (Christians) have over 41,000 Different religions that stem from one book of books for the church of England in 1611.

In the books Mathew, Mark, Luke and John. Jesus is continually telling the religious rulers that they are lost. They did not practice unconditional forgiveness and non judgment. Thus they could not see or experience that Kingdom which Jesus was teaching them about. Nicodemus however did. He understood the insanity of judgment prior to investigation. In other words Nicodemus knew Jesus was the Christ. Just as you will by your willingness to love and not hate your enemies.

Unconditional forgiveness restores and renews our mind away from fear and hate back to love and joy. The new mind gives us a different view. This different view is the vision of Christ. This vision comes out of your willingness to forgive and love everyone.

In closing, the disciples of Jesus Christ are here to serve the lord. We serve Him by listening to His Holy Spirit within the Kingdom of God. As we do this more and more often we become aware that He has in fact resurrected. We then become God dependent knowing the truth that has set us free.

This is an excerpt from the book: RADICAL SEEKER

Posted in addiction, anxiety, devil, dream, Ego, fear, forgiveness, God, hell fire, Jesus, meditation, money, Paramahansa Yogananda, salvation, seek, Spirit, spiritual, stress, truth, Yogananda on September 28, 2017 by david1963

Atonement:
Surrendering to the Holy Spirit is acquired by the process of the Atonement. As a follower of Jesus He is our Guide. We hear Him through the Holy Spirit.

Here is a passage from a children’s nursery rhyme The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams talking about the Atonement process. She uses the word Real in place of Atonement:

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.
“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real, you don’t mind being hurt.”
“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse.
“You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easy, or have sharp edges, or have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once your Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

How and what must “i” go through?
The RADICAL SEEKER is brave,
fearless, daring, dauntless, valiant, intrepid, undaunted, undismayed, confident, heroic, bold, adventurous, gallant, stout, lion-hearted, strong, stalwart, unflinching, and unyielding in Christ Jesus!

Escape from suffering and death is the purpose of the RADICAL SEEKER’S unyielding search for Christ within the ‘Kingdom of God’, the Mind.

The Point of No Return

There comes a point of no return back to the old way of life or “thinking.” This point is reached by traveling through the Atonement process. Dr. Martin Luther King reached this point and tells about it in his Call at Midnight sermon. You come to a point in time where it is just you and your Savior Jesus Christ. Until this point is reached you have relied on your own way of thinking and judgment. Now it is impossible because you realize that your judgment has been over seen by a Higher Source without your real understanding. This Higher Source has been guiding you on your journey to salvation and now you have to know “Him.” He if you are a RADICAL SEEKER is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. His form remains unseen until all you want to manifest is the truth.

Truth is the same for everyone. What appears to be different truths is the ego, its concepts and judgments. Unconditional forgiveness kept in mind allows for the truth to return to your full awareness. Until the point of no return is reached the mind is split between love and fear. Sometimes being Guided by the Holy Spirit and love, but most often guided by the ego and fear. When the decision is made, by faith, only to listen to the Holy Spirit, a new vision dawns. You come to realize you are dreaming and the only way out is to no longer buy into the fear, threats and tactics of the ego. With faith in Christ Jesus you walk unharmed through seeming terror thus realizing that all your scary or fearful thoughts were nothing more than ideas perpetrated by an ego that was trained to be afraid of the future and of the Father, our Divine Loving Creative Source from whence we came.

We did not create ourselves, nor do we need to care for ourselves. The transition is the reason why this book was written. RADICAL SEEKER is an attempt to convey your invulnerability to you, first in the written word, and then by your putting your faith into practical application. Fear not that all your attachments will be taken from you if you “give everything to the poor and follow me.” The Lord Jesus Christ is gentle. He understands your dilemma and your blind belief in birth and death. The son of man was born that he may come to realize that he is in fact a Son of God. Jesus walked this earth as a man just as you and I appear to be doing now. He knew however that He was spirit and not “flesh and bone as you see me.”

The realization that you are as He is, is salvation. Salvation is achieved through the Atonement process. Salvation shows you everything that you have ever believed to be fearful is not true. You have no more trials or tribulations when you surrender by faith and turn your mind/life over to Christ. Trials are lessons, BUT THEY END! Tribulation is fear and IT’S NOT REAL! TEST HIS SPIRIT AND YOU HAVE YOUR EYES OPENED FOR YOU!

The RADICAL SEEKER loves Jesus, loves his brothers and sisters and his enemies. The RADICAL SEEKER is a disciple of the Risen Christ       (no period)       The RADICAL SEEKER has put the teachings of Jesus Christ into practical application consistently and has become aware of His Presence within the Kingdom of God. Salvation is the reward of your inheritance for “returning back to the Garden and your Heavenly Father.” The prodigal RADICAL SEEKER has tried many things some of which are work, sex, gambling, organized religion, money, 12 step programs, fame, an even success to fulfill the “desires of the flesh” and still thinks “my Fathers servant’s” are doing better than this.

Fear is hell. Heaven is what hell was prior to the Atonement of Christ Jesus. Heaven, like hell, is not a place, it is a state of mind that surpasses all intellectual understanding. Heaven is salvations “Promised Land.” Jesus never taught His disciples that heaven was reached after death, nothing is reached after death. In fact, Jesus taught; “Repent (go the other way, within) the Kingdom of Heaven is At-Hand!” Or, make up with your Father, reconcile with Him by keeping unconditional forgiveness in your mind, He wants to give you Paradise now.

God is not mad and feeling guilty is insanity, Guilt is discussed in Chapter 4. Guilt is the egos weapon of choice against the son of man. Guilt is manipulation. By “feeling guilty” the mind, Not realizing it is Not a body becomes a slave to the body, and attacks itself, endlessly, this is “eternal hell.”

Jesus was not trying to frighten anyone. Eternal hell is self punishment for not understanding the true nature of reality. Eternal hell is to be forever afraid. Fear is hell because fear is insanity. To be afraid of anything is to not Know Thyself or your Heavenly Father. The Father loves you no matter your past “son of man sins”, they have all been Atoned for by our Lord and RISEN Savior Jesus Christ. “Sins” are guilty past thoughts, or anxious future thoughts brought into the present. They are not real. They are not hear now. No one remembers them except you! You have a Master cognitive therapist within the Kingdom of God. He awaits your welcome. The reason Jesus is the Master cognitive therapist is because He “ascended unto the Father” for you. His consciousness became one with the Father and still is. The possibilities are literally staggering to the disciple who realizes that Jesus Christ resurrected 2000 years ago and never left.  Their Savior can be known.

Saint Paul prior to his spiritual awakening on the road to Damascus did not believe that Jesus had Risen unto the Father until His (Jesus’) spirit spoke to his spirit.  Of course this is utter foolishness to anyone who blindly believes that God drowned children in a great flood. If fact a “great flood” is blasphemous to a disciple of the Risen Christ who sees such blind beliefs about a Loving Father as insanity. The sons and daughters of men blindly believe outrageous stories and brazen lies out of their fear of God. Never questioning the source of this fear. To restate an earlier statement; fear is hell. If we blindly believe that God created hell then we can never Know that He did not!

As we begin to understand more hidden truths by putting into practical application the teaching’s of Jesus Christ we see that He is directing His disciples into a new way of thinking. Jesus was new age 2000 years ago. Quantum physicists are only now in the 21st century discovering the “oneness” that Jesus spoke of experiencing. The “Father and I are One” is a declaration that God was with Him and in everything. Quantum physicists cannot describe actually what holds us all together and that we are all connected in some way, except to say, it’s real!  God’s Kingdom is in everything and everywhere. It is first experienced within your mind. Hence “The Kingdom of God IS within you!”

Love will Guide you to the point of no return safely. Jesus wills to receive you. In the same way as an elder Brother would receive a brother or sister they had forgotten since time began. When you see Him, and you will as a RADICAL SEEKER, you will then Know you never knew Him not.

1 John 2:15-17 “Be in the world but not of it”

We are in a dream. Where we believe that we are separate from everyone else. We are not separate but the body makes it appear as though we are.

The remedy for this perceived duality is Unconditional Forgiveness, “70×7”.

The “mind” attacks the body, believing that it, the mind, is a body. It does this to act out its plan for salvation. Its plan for salvation is another body to love, or more green paper strips and metal discs, or a bigger house, better car etc…

The body is the home of the ego, but it is not here. The body is an illusion. This is “foolishness” to those who keep and believe that they have “enemies”. To have an enemy is to Be IN the world and apart of it. When you have no more enemies you will see what these eyes were never intended to see!

This is why to be a disciple of the Risen Christ we MUST “Love Thy enemies” and search our heart to forgive those to which you hold anger. Anger is an attack on God. Anger is not real and made of judgment.  Anger appears to be real because the mind that gets “angry” is sick.

Unconditional Forgiveness heals the mind of judgment which is fear.

Anger is fear taken out on ourselves, unknown by us. Fear and anger are insane. We always attack ourselves first, we MUST remember this. We judge or “attack” others (in our mind) to protect an ego that does not exist in reality. This judgment is what makes the body feel bad. This judgment is the cause of all sickness and disease.

 The body does not like the way it feels because judgment is not natural for a Son of God. A Son of God realizes His Fathers protection and begins to listen to the Voice of Forgiveness and no longer the egos voice of judgment.

This in turn renews Vision and shows us what our eyes could never see.

You are all there is. Meaning, that everything you look upon is One with you. Forgiveness will show you this. Forgiveness reconciles judgment and ‘shows’ you what your judgment hid from you.   

The body as you are currently experiencing it was not here 100 years ago, and will not be here 100 years from now.

All suffering comes from the belief that the body is eternal. The body is not eternal and was Not created by God, it was made by the ego. The ego is the body, made to take the place of God; and the personality contained within the body was made to take the place for the Voice for God or the Holy Spirit; and fear is its ‘spirit’ that has come to take the place of the Spirit of God which is Love.

“Hell” is fear. Just as “Heaven” is the absence of fear. We transcend fear by our willingness to FORGIVE. Forgiveness is the method or “religion” of Christ Jesus. Forgiveness is the extension of Love until forgiveness (70×7), is no longer needed. Unconditional Forgiveness restores the mind back to where it was prior to fear entering in. Fear is the reason for all the insanity that you see in your world. Fear is what has produced sickness, war, and addiction, and ‘other’ insane symbols of unreality. Reality is experienced as fearless. There is no fear in Love. Would you not go through fear to find Love?

The body has taken control of the mind. The body dictates to the mind what it wants and what it needs. The body is an insane symbol used to take the place of EVERYTHING! The You Created by God our Father is Everything and Everywhere. The real You is the Christ Consciousness. To obtain the awareness of the ‘real You’ we Must be willing to question every concept or belief that we have been taught or told is true.

“Addiction” for example is a symptom of fear, fear is the disease, and addiction is the symptom. The symptom DISAPPEARS as we come to the realization that we were cognitively disassociated with the truth.

“Cognitive dissociation” is believing something that is Not true and then Acting as though it is true.  

Another example of cognitive dissociation is the concept of “hellfire.” Hellfire has been used to keep spiritual slaves in exile from their creative Source since the time of the Egyptian Pharaohs. It is my attempt in this post to show that suffering is needless and all suffering is self-induced, perpetrated by the unawareness of, the true nature of reality.

Contempt prior to investigation is what keeps the son of man in everlasting ignorance, and from becoming aware that he is fact the Son of God.

In closing, meditation is the key that brings joy and happiness. The reason is simply because you begin to understand that All the thoughts that you are aware of are meaningless. Then you come into the realization that you are not alone. This is not some form of mental illness or schizophrenia. The Voice for our creative Source is within the ‘kingdom of God’ that Is within YOU.

 The second coming of Jesus Is the resurrection of Christ within YOU!  

It’s not of this World Beloved

Posted in addiction, anxiety, dark night of the soul, devil, dream, dreaming, Ego, enlightenment, fear, forgiveness, God, hell fire, Hope, Jesus, meditation, seeker, Spirit, spiritual, within on April 2, 2016 by david1963

The Prophet Mohammed called it “Paradise”, Buddha called it “Nirvana”, and Jesus the Christ called it the “Kingdom of Heaven.”
They were all referring to a state of consciousness that is not of this world; yet it can be experienced in this world.

  Many “believe”, and falsely, that eternal peace and happiness is obtained after the death of the body. Using just a little reason can show us that the body is not ultimately real. It, the body, was not here 100 years ago, and it will not be here 100 years from now.

 

Keeping this in mind, lets see why we believe, what we believe. “Believers”, no matter their “religions” all believe in the possibility of an after death punishment for “non-believers.”

Beliefs are a cover up for the fear of God. Why are we afraid of our creative source? The reason is, we have been generationally brainwashed to “blindly believe” that God is vengeful. Because we “believe” that the body is real, we form “beliefs” to protect it after death. “Hellfire” for example was invented by the Pharaoh to keeps his spiritual slaves in slavery.
The threat of an “after death punishment” by God has kept men in bondage for an unimaginable expanse of time. Why does no one question their “holy book?” Why do men blindly believe in the Torah, Koran or Bible? Fear. This is not by accident. Spiritual slavery keeps men in bondage without their awareness or knowledge of this bondage. No one believes that they have been brainwashed. It fact, the EGO is so proud, that it “believes” it cannot be brainwashed. The EGO is that part of our consciousness that Christ calls the “devil.”

How do we “undo” brainwashing? First we must realize that to judge another is to be dishonest. To judge properly we would have to have All the facts, past, present and to come. A man who is brainwashed “believes” that if someone does not “believe” as they do, then they are wrong.

Unconditional forgiveness reconciles judgment. So, unconditional forgiveness (7ox7), restores the mind back to reason. What reason does an all loving creator have to punish His creation? He doesn’t. That would make the creator insane. Religion has made an image of God in their own likeness.

The three major religions of the world do not use reason when trying to understand God. This too is not by accident. Reason would clearly show that to drown children in a “great flood” would be insane. God creating something then killing it?!?

Life is eternal. Love is eternal. The mind is sick that believes to harm another is sane. If the religion’s of this world realized this, war would end. A Christian who “believes” it is ok to go to war, is suffering from insanity, and is very much unaware of his sickness because of the generational brainwashing produced by the blind belief in the king of England’s religious manifesto entitled the “holy bible.” Nor do they realize that the second coming of Jesus is the resurrection of Christ within them!

We Must seek to know ourselves. We can only know ourselves by “Asking our-Self.”
Our Self is contained within our current “personality” or consciousness. Asking, is done by allowing the mind to be stilled in silence, with the intent of obtaining Truth. This is not “hearing voices”, or a form of mental illness. It is faith in what Jesus teaches His disciples, that, “the kingdom of God Is within YOU.” It the Truth that sets them Free!

MEDITATION is the key to knowledge. Knowledge of this world by men of this world is nonsense. Knowledge of Paradise is real knowledge. Because real Knowledge produces wisdom, and Wisdom is Experiential Knowledge.

Faith in a religion or method that does not produce the sought after result, i.e. inner peace, joy or happiness is a false religion. The “religion” or method of Jesus of Nazareth, Is UNCONDITIONAL FORGIVENESS.

Unconditional Forgiveness renews the mind, forgiveness Renews Your MIND!

Jesus has been called by many names over the centuries. He was a man like you and I. He examined consciousness from the inside out, not from the outside in. By doing this He came to a Self realization that He was “One with Everything.”
Realizing this, He wanted Everyone to know. The religious rulers of His day, like today, were extremely judgmental. For fear they would lose their perceived power. And they did! Henceforth the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

But that is only half the story. Jesus resurrected and is within Everyone’s consciousness who Asks for His Guidance!  Of course this is foolish nonsense to a  society that believes war is OK. War is insanity!

This world was given to us/YOU by y/our “Father in Heaven.” Jesus taught God as masculine Because He was teaching to generationally brainwashed “believers” of the Torah who viewed God as masculine.
(Jesus knew all holy books are dead letters.) God is not in a book, He is within His Consciousness that is “within you.” Jesus teaches His disciples that the “kingdom of heaven is within You!”

King James church is the result of a systematic, generational brainwashing campaign that began over 400 years ago, (1611).
When Christians realize Jesus Is within the kingdom of God, Now, and that His kingdom Is within them, they will experience the second coming of Christ, and the sham of the “holy bible” will be recognized.

To become aware of the salvation of Christ we must accept His Atonement. The Atonement, is the undoing of false beliefs. Christ Atoned by His resurrection, not by the crucifixion. Very few experience the resurrected Savior because they do not “Love Thy enemies!!” We have NO ENEMIES we only “believe” we do.

Let me digress for a moment. Television is the modern-day “holy bible.” Television is a “propaganda machine.” Television is a drug. A drug used to brainwash the minds of men so they never become the Sons of God!

As we render unto the world what is the world’s, we are brought closer to the awareness of heaven. Heaven is not a place, it is a “state of being” that this world knows very little about.

There is a transformation of consciousness that takes place within the mind of the disciple that is intellectually unbelievable. This transformation is akin to a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. Imagine a butterfly trying to explain flight to a caterpillar, and you see the dilemma that Christ faced in His attempt to teach the “believers” of His day about “heaven.”

“Kingdom of Heaven” is total Peace of mind.

I AM aware that the Kingdom of Heaven is within me; that we experience this Kingdom to the degree that we become conscious of it. This awareness shows us this kingdom is Ours!

We are now in a dispensation of “time” that we will make our Greatest spiritual gains in the history of mans sojourn as we Dispense with our fear of God, and no longer fear His kingdom.

Fear is the effect of all the madness you see; And there is No cause. What you experience as cause is in truth only an effect of fear.

God Is the Only Cause, and if God did not create it, it is not real, and if you or i are seeing what our Father did not Create, then we are spiritually blinded by fear.

Mind only operates correctly when it is not stressed by circumstances. Circumstances are karmic in nature, meaning, YOU are effecting YOUR world by YOUR thoughts.

Meditation creates a space within the mind that limits what you expose yourself too. Sickness for example can be cured through proper meditation. All sickness begins in a mind that is Not “at ease.” When the mind is at ease it can not be in “dis ease.”

REASON will bring with it WISDOM beloved <3

Reason was snatched from yOur awareness by yOur blind belief in the “holy-bible.”

When we do not use reason we are LOST. Reason tells you the “great flood” to wipe out “Gods mistake” is a deception by those who do not want you to know the Truth that sets your free.

 

When we do not use reason we are LOST. Reason tells you that an after death “hell-fire” for non-believers in a king’s 400 year old religious manifesto is a deception.

When we do not use reason we are LOST. Reason tells you that to blindly believe ANYTHING fearful about God without spiritual proof is a deception. Lastly;

When we do not use reason we are LOST. Reason tells you; Faith without works is NONSENSE!

Let reason gently guide you away from the fear of God into the loving arms of your Heavenly Father.

Brother, the brainwashing we were under has kept us LOST in the Dark Age of spiritual slavery. To transcend the Dark Age is to seek until you find. Jesus is telling you if you are a practicing disciple; that “YOU will KNOW the Truth and the Truth will set you free.”

Your beliefs are like your thoughts, they too are MEANINGLESS.

FORGIVENESS 70X7 releases the burden of guilt perpetrated on you by your judgment of Gods PERFECT Creation.

You are HOME, fear Is the stranger here my Brothers and Sisters ❤
