In My Father's House...

A priest who has allowed Muslims to pray in his church has told how he has been hit by a barrage of abuse by internet 'trolls'.

Any identification can be employed by the mentality of hate, which may appeal to the forms and names of love - but has no love and knows not love.

A nominal Christian or Muslim is not what it professes just because of external assertions, dress code or tribal loyalties. If true religion is to be nurtured in our world, that truly joins us with Life, with our brother/sister and with living world, then it needs to grow out of NOT using belief as a weapon of division.

What we truly believe is witnessed by its fruits. As our perception, our presence, our actions and our compassion. If we live love - it doesn't matter by what means we came to let love into our heart. It's nobody's business to dictate their path upon another!
Loving IS true religion - and love doesn't arise from selfishness no matter how forcefully asserted.
The mentality of hate, 'loves' to hate because it sees separation as salvation. And hates to love, for it sees love as loss of self. It finds the ways to hate that justify itself to itself and fails to recognize love even when it is in their midst.

Jesus was not a Christian, nor Mohammed a Muslim. Both truly loved, and expressed such love in inspiring compassionate ways.

Fear is not a sane foundation for life. A willingness to trust the impulse of love is how we invite Christ in, whether we care to use such a term or not.

To one who sarcastically noted Christians failure to follow their own teachings:
A good point here - but having pointed to the failings of others, are you now better? - or indeed a true follower of the above?

Christian failure ought to generate a radical re-evaluation and in some I am sure it does.
Others make a virtue of being suffering sinners and most everyone sighs and accepts the 'human condition' and makes token gestures.

The nature of Messengers who inspire is that they embody what they speak, and communicate it on levels that transcend mere information. Holiness is usually for the dead because those identified in partial hypocrisy cant abide it while those who believe their own mind cant even see it. But Sanctity belongs to life; it is we who disinherit ourselves, not God.

Teaching that awakens and serves a life lived in love instead of fear, tends to be subverted to worldly goals, becoming identity in the world rather than a transcendence of loving - even while apparently in it.

To any mind identified exclusively with the passing show, unconditional love must seem a superhuman sacrifice, and Jesus is accorded a specialness that effectively separates him from us as a brother.

But a mentality of control is rooted in fear, and this is what Jesus taught freedom FROM. Love IS spontaneous to a freedom from fear, NOT a weapon against it. But an institutional church used religion as its control mechanism and reversed the core teaching by intervening between a man and his true heart's knowing. Break the bounds!

Said one:
Funny thing is all Abrahamic religions worship the same guy.
Retorted another:
Funny thing is you are wrong.Allah is not God.It is a semi pagan deity known in Arabia before Mohammad and elevated by him to the level of the Jewish Yahvey,Jehova.Even a cursory study of the qua'ran would show the reader how different God is to allah.

The first thing to do in order to have a seeming anti-God is to make a definition of God and worship IT instead of God.
Now a definition is a thought and God is not limited by thought - so you have a conflict if you want to have your selfconcept AND true Life.
Choosing to worship an imaged definition, cuts off the feeling of true Life. Kicked out of Paradise!
Life now appears polarized between Good and evil. The Good is what your definition of God allows you, and evil is what seems to threaten your salvation, which is misplaced in the idol, and is being defended against True God. Jesus' parable of the tenant farmers illustrates.
There's only God, and all that says different is what our minds make up and identify for or against.
YHWH or Yahweh has been rendered as "I Am That I Am"
But however the Name of God is written, spoken (or refrained from being written and spoken), it is both name AND nature - and never to be used casually - in vanity or carelessness.
But it is used without any sense of Only True Being and as a word or thing in a world of things it can be fought over and used to justify division.
The mind that does not stop at the thought of God is a mind that has forgot what it is to Be - lost in a distraction of its own thinking.

Through a Google Glasses Darkly?

 An article on Google Glasses in The Telegraph:

Google Glass: Orwellian surveillance with fluffier branding

New technology will make us all agents for Google. Nick Pickles, Director of Big Brother Watch, says the implications for privacy are profoundly worrying.

(Three comments into a product that brings home some of the implications of the Internet of Everything - of which data-mining is driving as if it offered THE ANSWER).

1. The only way I feel the Internet of Everything working beyond the reach of any private self interest - be that personal or corporate, is if everything is tracked and traced without ANY possibility of corrupting the datastream.

Then those that provide the information as well as those that access it will be identified. Any attempt to manipulate would be identified.
'What's your business" can be asked of anything that has none.

Violation can be marked up as a trace on all parties involved. What is our business? Is it our own business in the sense of exclusive and hidden, or is it open to all legitimate approach?

God's Reality could be considered a state in which privacy is an absurd idea and everyone 'walks in a garden' where all is shared as it is needed or called for.
No need for dense bodies in a realm of Light.
But if you wanted a private experience you have to usurp the Living system by promising extra powers and giving out some sweets. "Hey come on in - this will blow your mind!"

These glasses are a bridge to the biochip. Events will be hijacked or indeed created to induce adoption. The Beast appears. Do you see that it isn't the form but the intent to manipulate and control.

And of course it didn't SEEM evil to the elves that made the magic rings. In fact these particular elves were groomed on the shiny halo of doing none!

Someone commented that we would be crazy not to embrace this tech and that Glasses are no different from phone-cams anyway.
2. Each step is incremental so in some ways - yes you can walk around with a cam or phone etc - but this would become as normal as having a smartphone. And yes it cuts both ways as police brutality exposure vids show.

The thing about abusing a knife is that its range is limited. So yes technology is always abused but its range of effect is growing incrementally at an accelerating rate.

If you are willing to be managed and essentially farmed, there is a place for you - as long as your demographic fits.

The Faustian pact was a symbol of having added powers that robbed your soul. Now the Soul is not even felt - amidst a flood of information and distraction, so maybe the last part of the process is welcomed as if it was freedom.

But if others OWN your life - your freedom is just what they feed you while the milk yield is high.

The more we invest ourselves in technology - the more we disinvest of our real lives. Sure you CAN do both - but that requires a great willingness of discernment that runs counter to everything we are raised to believe - and so that is what I feel the Call of our times is.

Its much easier to take the ride. That's what everyone felt during the lead up to the financial crash. "Who cares if it cant last - this money is sweet now and there's more!"

Discernment has to come from a place that hasn't already got an investment of private self interest.

There - now that is an awakening invitation to identify what we love to hate in others... in ourselves, and to NOT employ it.

Truly shared interest is enlightened self interest.

Someone pointed out that the new tech could replace all signage with virtual signs (an idea that has some appeal in a cluttered world). So the speed signs appear only when exceeding Another replied that you'd be zapped and fined as soon as it showed!

3. There are no speed limits and no signs - the car is also on the grid.
If you have the money, you can have the ad free experience - maybe ad minimal. But hey - here's a free option, hook up your mind to our inputs and we'll zap you over and over and over and over... you know what I mean ;-)
Its cool that you can defend your mind because that creates a new vector for applications we can sell to target you and others like you - so as to zap you over and over and over- with what you really WANT. WANT.WANT.WANT.WANT.WANT...... you know what I mean ;-)
Now in amongst those guys that have things to sell and services to offer is also a desire to put something in, to trade in something worth having or doing - or there would be if there was a way to get a toehold in an economic system designed to undermine a truly organic relationship.
If the 'devil' had a trade what would it be? Advertising? Movies? Lawyer? What I'm aiming at it where something comes between and  breaks what it promises to make.

If we are already destabilized and identifying with a meaningless existence - we are susceptible to the false promises of a loveless intent.

(As it happens - I expect the virtual system will keep the illusion of personal control going so as to maintain the power of guilt and punishment aka 'control'. If the car is controlled universally, then 'thought control' stands in line. (which is the true nature of manipulative intent all along).

I hope you don't feel I'm pissing over your comment!
I just find the words flow once I start typing into the general thread of this stuff.

The Fictitious Race

Why 'Race' Is Fiction - by Bonnie Greer on HuffPo

(My comments don't follow the form and its associated meanings in the world so much as seek to uncover the active mentality that underlies all such symptoms as racism)

Comment 1:

There is a mind that differentiates itself to be special - to get one up - to be favoured - to get what it wants regardless of whether it is real, attainable or truly desirable. We all have something of this in us and it cuts us off from the love - the unified being - that is always present beneath artificial divisions.

The willingness to put aside the mind of division is the allowing of love's perspective into a world that seemed unlovely and fearfully compulsive. In this culture we come to celebrate differences as part of a universal human experience in which our unique living presence is honoured and shared.

The unwilling cannot be forced, but nor need they be fed in terms of their habit and its presentation. A blind and fearful sense of self interest is callous to all but its own perceived or believed needs. This kind of 'self-protective' withdrawal of real presence, attention or communication might seem aggressive and contagious - because nothing baits us more to invest in or invite hate into our hearts than to guilt.

The mind that seeks to redistribute guilt onto others is as yet unwilling to put it aside. A true righteousness shares a true integrity. For lawlessness to meet limitation serves an education and rehabilitation. For the truth of us to meet limitation serves to deepen our determination to put our inner chains aside and find our true presence - which is not defined over and against.

Comment 2:

It is always about power over rather than sharing power. It will use whatever is to hand to get, keep or grow in power and is a joining in hate - which is a way of not joining at all!

Darwin felt we were all of one life and sought to prove it. His findings point to the blueprints but haven't yet opened the experience and the realisation of true relation. On surface are all kinds of adaptations and cultural differences and on surface these look to be in conflict.
So relax beneath the surface and get a fresh perspective - despite all the compulsive urges of the mind to run as if it were independent of the life that Breathes It.

The ego is like a thought that has a thick heavy border around it. Inside is what seems to be tiny self in a vast and hostile universe - yet a universe surprisingly aligned for a temporary experience. But actually what is outside and 'other' is what we had denied or closed off from, in fearfully scrambling for some measure of control amidst a chaotic sense of division.
These conditions and rules that we each set around us are a sort of defence against our wholeness.
"There is no holier spot on Earth than where an ancient hatred becomes a present love".
What is the 'power' that hates to love and loves to hate? It is an imagination given the reality of our subscription.
Just say No!

Comment 3:

When we give our Word, we define. And as we define - so do we experience. If you give a false word - a fiction - then you have a fictitious experience, a divided and disintegrated experience.
When you wake up to the power of your Word, you will be able to thank your experience and release it so as to make way for a Word that your tiny little mind didn't make up.
The True Defining Context for our experience is known in guiltlessness - which doesn't demand of or lay trip upon.
There was a baby in the bath when religion got thrown away. Because it was being misused by people who had gotten lost in the surface forms without sharing the Meaning.

Further additions to the comments of not understanding comment 3.
Bonnie dismissed the 'Word' among other points she made. I offered a reminder that your Word is what you are giving - THROUGH which you are experiencing. The way religion withers is when it is interpreted within the world rather than about YOU. You can have no reality BUT Reality. You want a bit on the side? It's your will - and now you've got a split directive - with all the shit that hits the fan of and projects out as experience.

The mind that sleepwalks doesn't realize it is dreaming and anything you say to it is simply unheard or interpreted to support the dream.

Within this reality we call the human condition, there are those who have engaged a virtual life and identify it to the exclusion of their full awareness of what s and what they Are. It can get addictive and one can learn to screen out (sic) the 'interferences' to the continuity of one's virtual existence so as to give priority to the personal experience it offers.
In this example you choose to engage or 'enter' such a framework for experience and to do so, one has to forget to laugh at it. That is one takes it seriously; identification, preoccupation with its drama, and a protective sense of it's 'life' - and all that maintains it's 'life' - including its drama and ultimate (sic) import of its death - which is what provides the tension throughout.

The Word is the Idea - that you give or extend. By not giving true presence, we experience falsely. It's that simple.
The human consciousness is already a virtual 'reality' and the program is running as a layer of emulation. I am inviting communication 'outside the box' to coin a much misused term.
Because as long as we try to solve problems outside ourselves - that are only solvable within ourselves - we perpetuate the problem in different forms. Like the hero who cuts of the head of the serpent and three more grow in place each time.
Now that doesn't constitute a withdrawal of our presence in our relationships (though sometimes there is a period of 'wilderness' time) - but shifts us from a presentation to an actual presence.
The presence of life is not a thought construct - it cannot be defined or depicted in form - and yet pervades your Whole Life and everyone in it.
When we deny presence to play out a virtual sense of limited self - it is always at the expense of - always over and against - always a polarised experience.
So what is it we are against or at the expense of but Life, as Brother and Sister - because they share this Same Life, and our Self. "Even as you do unto the least, you do unto Me doesn't only mean the least - but means without exception. Until we change our Word we will not heal our world.

X1Commented: Black men suffer VERY high rates of prostate cancer - It's a racial fact. I find it very depressing you'd rather censor this truth and contribute towards their deaths than acknowledge your pet theories are in fact lies.
Genetic traits can be called racial - but remain genetic traits. We presume genes to be the Programmer of life - but without looking in any detail I bet it is turning out to be much much more complex than that - AND that somewhere below our conception of ourselves or our world, is a power of intelligence that delivers as it is asked. I'm not saying that little ego-minded critters get to choose anything or even have access to such a level - but the scientific crusade has tended to seek for the Cause of All OUTSIDE MIND - and disregard mind - (except for its defining and controlling rational talent) - as have almost all humans prior to scientists.

Mediumal57 rejoined: I can assure you it is both much more complex and at the same time remarkably more simple at once If one accepts that we are a product of Crick and Watson's double helix molecule then chemically all variation in life forms on this planet are essentially brought about by the way carbon chooses to combine with other elements. i say chooses, but of course I don't mean that carbon atoms make a conscious choice to combine with say oxygen to produce carbon dioxide. That process is best described using part of the standard model in physics. The trouble with discussing this subject, as indeed anything related to human biology, one soon finds one has to keep backing up to resolve other issues before what one is really after in being resolved can stand a chance of being tackled sensibly. It's why religious people prefer to blame God. 
Blame and God are incompatible - so you must be talking about blame and scapegoat.
I too find it is much simpler than I can say and remarkably complex to approach through any attempt to say it. I like you also feel that to address anything tends to need to back up to incorporate a structural process in consciousness that is essentially invisible or unconscious to a mentality directed AWAY from its own source and nature. Yet there IS no AWAY from truth excepting imagination - and so even scientific exploration is uncovering  Mind. Not a separate Mind, as in a magical 'god' with super powers. But Mind.

Everything expresses its source, and the notion that reality is split into mind AND matter is a polarized expression of a divisive intent, taken and used as a foundation.
The notion of choice is an imagination - a prop in a play - in which it is accorded status. Yet actually there is only the acceptance of the reality of what Is or the denial of what already Is or it could not BE denied.
Human consciousness is a complex of defence mechanisms, presumed to be acting for surface ego. They are forms of denial and dissociation. Seeking to focus exclusively on the gross aspects of what is external to this ego based experience is an attempt to escape the magical thinking of a personal mythology, not unlike Pythagoras with his sinlessly divine mathematics. (Apparently) abstracted from the sin of personal involvement.

Science tends to try to 'reverse engineer' life as if to know it from the 'outside' and use such 'knowledge' to control it. But I assure you, neither you (nor anyone) is outside it in even the tiniest degree. We live out a play of 'as if' in which the mind 'steps outside' or indeed between, to define and judge all things in its own image.
I accept that all things real are a direct expression of an indivisibility and that includes what is real about a double helix molecule and you and I.
A scientist posits a reason behind a pattern or behaviour, because of splitting off of effect from cause and then assigning the experience of a past as cause, I posit that there is a Movement Implicit in all events that is concurrent or Cause-Event the function of the Living Universe, that is perfectly unified and indivisible. In our terms it could be called 'Know Thyself'. It could also be seen as the inherent nature and function of mind. It is the underlying motive force - yet there is nothing outside or apart from itself to act upon - because it creates out of itself and through its creation knows itself in all its expression. Now this is merely theoretical unless you are uncovered beneath the nature and level of what is called 'your own thought', and still wont mean anything unless the momentum of the divisive intent is recognized and released. But regardless of any attempt to articulate in ANY kind of system of description - truth is uncovered and not determined by the mind of man. And what is uncovered pulls out the rug from under our feet. (Therefore seek and don't find is the interference pattern that keeps the sense of time from falling away to an edgeless Now.

The truth of data is a sort of code modelled out in ideas, but truth of being is at rest in/as its own dynamic and communicates a tangible presence.
Scientific AND religious people tend to use blame to justify a self righteousness, instead of consigning guilt to history and opening to a greater honesty. I realize we are in different systems of thought and I do not expect either to function or make sense within the other - but that doesn't mean they are in conflict. Lovers can also practice science. But not at the same instant - unless the science of love is the uncovering of the truth of an undefended conscious awareness, and innocence of being, a wonder of delight, an ever fresh curiosity. A deep sense of safety and gratitude. A capacity to relate that remains unimaginable to the ego sense. But none of the 'fruits' constitute a handle of control over ones existence so much as the provision of a clearer perspective in which the need for the personal sense of control is undone. To seek control is the action/reaction experience of division. But to come back into an integrated and congruent perspective is to be aligned with rather than resisting, Life.

Man manipulating manipulators?

Botnet fraud costs display advertisers $6m a month, security researchers say

If it can be manipulated it will be manipulated.

Self interest doesn't necessarily play by any other 'self''s rules or alliances of self-interest.

As long as there is a sense of being manipulated, defence will be employed. Attack is then seen as the best form of defence, unless it cant succeed, in which case withdraw, block and hide until your day comes!

Just as well the human mind doesn't work along the lines that the internet does - or our world would be in a complete mess wouldn't it!

Botnet operaters are going to have to emulate human clickers now - surely an impossible feat!

If advertising were replaced by genuine information about products and services, might we actually find what we want when we want because we want it?

Is advertising primarily a protection racket that businesses have to pay to not be rendered insignificant and unknown? With a front end that bombards the unconscious mind with images and phrases designed to trigger archetypal responses in an endless war to exploit anything in our mind that can be leveraged?
Is it a bit like the serpent in the Garden of Eden. Empty promises to pull us into a dependence on a false sense of ourselves.

Is advertising considered part of our real economy in terms of growth? Is it a cancerous imposition on the body politic?
What would genuine information look like?

What does truth feel like?

Here's to a mind that is NOT at war with itself and a body politic that is not all the part acting without shared purpose. Self interest - in the sense of a private self interest cannot really be a shared purpose - because no matter how many billions 'share' it - they each operate as a non-communing privacy of hidden intent under a mask of whatever passes muster.

The tower of Babel seemed like it was 'going somewhere'. Will the internet disintegrate in dystopian fashion - for the 'one ring' of Tolkien's symbolic power - cannot be shared.

Surely we can trust market forces to come up with the best possible outcome!
And no doubt global corporate interest can pull the appropriate strings in remaining free of any real limitation on their bold march into a future where we can all be branded - and not just the likes of cola.

I think I wrote this in a humorous vein because the story made me laugh!
Someone I know and love is in process of dying. This cuts away so much that is froth - I was going to say crap - but some of us like it some of the time.

And I am prompted to say that what life is really about is love. Not special love just for special me or special you - but love. Somehow this has become perhaps the most fearful and hateful fact - such that society forms in defending against its exposure.
Keep piling on the crap, fighting over crap and making or buying crap!
It isn't all like that. Life is still Life. It breaks through in all sorts of ways. It is under the radar. It is all that is really going on - even so.
Even for those of us who are releasing our grip - our control - our capacity to play the game of manipulating life.

Primate Change and thoughts on Science

Scientists may seem to know an awful lot about an awful little and then discover new things that put what they thought they knew into a different perspective altogether. The thing that immediately hit me about global warming has been not climate change itself - which is something that simply IS and which we may or may not have the effect upon that we think we have - but the mentality or psychology of the human consciousness that is observable both at large an in our own minds.

A Chicken Licken hysteria infects the others in the 'farmyard' and 'Foxy Loxy' sees opportunity for self interest out of an ungrounded and fearful blindness. Conspiracy of self interest is often tacit or even largely unconscious. It was easily discernible in the recent financial collapse.

Reliance on science is often at the expense of unified wisdom. Its mapping/controlling of 'reality' is an expression of arrogance that pretends to power but makes us increasingly powerless.

The CHANGE occurring is much MORE than climate!

(The above was a passing comment to this page of shallow scepticism and opinion - attaching itself to David Bellamy)

As a PS to the comment above, David Bellamy was inspiring because he was inspired. The joy of living was tangible in him - and I hope it still is.

Scientists are human beings who adopt a discipline which can be helpful within a meaningful context - but the interpretation of scientific data in terms of a machine or de-Souled human mind, UNDERMINES the context that I am calling Soul.

[Note: The following may seem dense but is an attempt to articulate something of the nature of the Soul. This can never be seriously achieved because you already are that One - but to a mind that thinks it knows itself differently, I offer this towards remembering].

The capacity to feel is a primary and integral quality of Awareness Itself because true thoughts are not merely data to be processed for the 'survival and defence' of a selfishness, but are expressions of our being.

Descartes famous saying 'I think, therefore I am', can be used to suggest a separated thinker existing because of awareness of thoughts, who is as thoughts define. But in actuality there is an event of awareness-thought that might be better expressed:

"I am" (Awareness Is) - "therefore thought expresses Me!" (qualities of being).

The mind of definition and judgement is the usurpation of the dimension of Feeling (or intuitive-discernment) by templates that create manual programs of conditioned reaction, fuelled by emotional triggers - (including those reactions against allowing emotional communication at all, in fear of losing control) - becomes an insanity by which the mind seeks to manipulate its own experience and hide the fact by means of complex deception or defence mechanism.

This attempt to prevail upon or over a sense of Self made 'other', is a root aspect of our human conditioning and is beneath the range of the scientific worldview - which is presuming to be uncovering truths about an external reality to a sense of limited mind in a body in a physical universe. This split mind is a tiny fragment of what is actual, and its unconsciousness is not imposed by conditions so much as a persistent program of self-limiting intent.

Science is NOT opening a golden age to us and has not brought us what it promised, but within it is still the legitimate search to uncover what is true as well as the service in offering solutions to mechanical problems. As with all things of this world, it is what we use them for - the active PURPOSE or cultural values that we share - which determines what they are to us.

I criticize science as a basis for human culture because I see it as a tool and not a Guide nor an identity. But I seek only to open the mind to its true nature and capacity for healing and wholeness. In such purpose Shared is an entirely different science and culture from the popular and superficial interpretations of a disconnected rationality.

The recent BBC program Metamorphosis indicates a direction that brings science into a more unified field.
The Unified Field theory is a sort of Holy Grail of science - and yet I suggest that it is already true - already manifesting you along with the Universe and more beyond your current capacity to imagine - but will never be uncovered as a theory because you are already its perfect proof! But the instant one seeks - imaginatively - to step OUTSIDE of one's own Mind, Being Reality - so as the theorize ANYTHING - the Unified appreciation is 'put on hold' while a pet project is indeed projected. Not into reality - but as an existence given YOUR reality. And in identifying with a thought, a sense of separate self becomes a focal point of a limited experience.
To our tiny minds this seems unimaginable - but the POWER of MIND is Infinite - that is without limit. In expressing power over our own thought we become afraid of MIND and seek to shut it down to a tiny trickle. Such intuitive knowings are held in various cultural stories and stir what is present but unconscious in our own mind.

Cardinal speaks of paedophilia as a disease

Paedophilia is an illness NOT a crime, says cardinal just days after papal conclave

What is the role and function of guilt in the human experience?

What is the nature and function of an identity that pretends to be in control of (its) life?

What is the nature of a mind that tries to gratify its own appetites and desires upon or at the expense of life - ie: other people?

What is the nature of a mind that is essentially a complex defence mechanism going through the mimic and the mask of passing off as valid, respectable or real?

What is the role of evil and enemy in the mind that seeks to distract attention and awareness from its own lack of validity and therefore 'loves' or is driven to find the hateful and unacceptable in OTHERS.

How can we find the wherewithal to address situations that are horrific in a way that heals?

Is the desire to hate, kill, dehumanise and expel a paedophile, a similar kind of appetite to that which drives such individuals to totally disregard the sanctity and dignity of others who share the same Life in attempt to justify or maintain our own fantasy?
