The Force of Life – both above and below all things

The Force of Life is the energy that we can all see about us. It is also known as The All, as without it there would be nothing. It’s within you, your children, your dog, trees, and all plant life. It is, in fact, obvious in all living things.

Jesus said that all things return to their root; meaning that we all go back into the form from which we originated – that being energy. Every cell every thought developed and energised by the Force of Life.

The energy of life can be seen all about us. It’s in everything, from soil to grass, to tree, to beast, of which we are a species. When we die our bodies return to the soil or dust from whence we came. Most of what we eat grows from the soil.

We live in a circle of life. Hence the pentacle that we wear, which contains all that there is in our lives. Life cannot survive without death, as death provides sustenance for both new and existing life. We eat plants that come from the soil. They contain the Force of Life in them. The same applies to animals. They feed on plants from the soil, or from each other, and we live from them.

When the body dies, so does the brain, and in spite of people wishing to believe in some resurrection, imaginary gods, or supposed afterlife, there are none. As the brain dies it stops producing though patterns. However, the good news is that you live on in your children, by passing on your genetic information, so there is no need to live on. Paradise is rejuvenated through the force of that life that is within us all.

The Force of Life struggles to keep it all going, as mankind never ceases to mindlessly destroy it, including himself. He has developed the belief that his deities will always provide, regardless of man’s deliberate and continuous, wanton destruction. It cannot survive unless it has living things within which to live. Around and around it goes, from generation to generation, life regenerating life. Hope this helps you all to understand how life works in reality, not in fantasy.

The Truth as we Think we Know it, or Don’t Know It

Have you heard the saying, “The truth will set you free”? So what does a half-truth get you? What does misleading information get you? Would you recognise the truth, if it hit you in the face with a wet herring? Why is one man's truth different from another's? Well, just to explain, one man's truth is different from another's, because they believe different things; and hold different opinions, often based on nothing rational. They have different experiences and upbringing. So, taking this into consideration, where lies truth? Is there in fact, any such thing, as real truth?
Some say that God is truth. Some say that the Bible contains only truth, while another will quote the Koran as truth. They both say that these books contain nothing but the truth, yet they are not the same, with both containing many contradictions. But then again, there are many different versions of the Bible, and different sects read and interpret the Koran differently. Does this mean that truth depends on interpretation? And, if this is the case, then how can there be truth, if there is space for interpretation? If it relies on interpretation, then everyone who reads these books will come up with something different, and call it, and view it, as the truth. Confusing, isn't it?
Then what about this God that so many people have fought and died for? What of religions that have caused so much war, each claiming God on their side? How many wars have been fought on the behalf of one god or another, or even multiple gods? How much suffering has there been, because of this kind of thinking? How can such a being be on both sides at the same time? It’s one of the great mysteries, you might say.
Do you know for a fact, that an entity called God really exists, or how would you interpret all the evidence against such a possibility? No one has ever seen him, or heard him in reality; and even the Bible clearly states that no man has ever seen God. How many prayers are in fact answered; and how many are not? And, why not? What evidence do you know, or have, to prove beyond doubt that God exists?
I've asked many men of the cloth this questions, and they all point to the Bible, or the Koran, amongst other books. But that's not evidence; especially as there are so many versions to choose from; all claiming that therein is the truth.
Can we ask ourselves yet again, what truth? Real truth, or their truth, based on their personal and individual interpretation? Perhaps then, whatever you choose to believe, without any evidence of fact, is truth. Is that possible? So if the truth isn't true, so where does that leave us, the seekers of actual, provable truth? Where does that leave you in the so called great scheme of things? Your life, or at least your quality of life and peace of mind, depends on it.
Everything depends on what you know or what you think you know. Belief isn't truth, as it isn't fact. When you know something for sure, it is no longer a belief: but only that which you imagine and hope is true, is belief. I have added a few dictionary meanings of truth below.
Is it just possible that you’re being misled? And why would you think that? You will die. That's fact, not belief. If you do as your churchmen and state tell you to do, then you will go to paradise after you die. Is the latter true? It only depends on what you have been taught to believe. In reality it has to be nonsense; and you, in your deepest heart, know it; so what's your problem? Now, can you consider what causes most of your problems? Confusion, perchance? Stupidity? Insanity? Think about it.

The Writings of Didymus Judas Thomas (part I)

Casa Battlo, Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona: The Seven Veils.

These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymus Judas Thomas wrote down upon his command.

And he said: “Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings, his blood will not experience death at the Ending of Days.”

Jesus said, “Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds that which he seeks. When he finds, that which he seeks may be not that he expecteth to find, therefore he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled he may well wonder, and then will be astonished, and he will rule over all the kingdom of his own mind.

“And he that cometh after me shall seek you out, and shall also be astonished at that which he finds: and that which he finds not shall cause him to despair; and his number shall be ten.”

Then Jesus said, “If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky’, then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea’, then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you and it is outside of you.

“When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realise that it is you who are the sons of the living force of all that is. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty, and it is you who are that poverty.

“He shall offer unto the blood of all men who know themselves, eternal life. And it shall not be as ether, nor shall it be believable: it shall be real, and may well escape men because of this.”

The Hallowed Book of Man: The Writings of Didymus Judas Thomas

When a man dwells on the past, he robs himself of the present…

Past, present and future


When a man dwells on the past, he robs himself of the present; but if he ignores the past, he may well learn nothing, and so rob the future. Therefore, a balance must be created between that which is, that which was, and that which will be. To be considered in the light of good reason and according to the value of lessons learned, lessons ignored, and lessons still to be learned.

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Who am I?”

 What am I?

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Who am I?” It’s considered a good question, but is it? It has its merits, only because it helps you to avoid the real question of, “What am I?”
Have you really considered what you really value, or if in fact has what you value has any actual or real value at all?
So what do you value? “Honesty”, you may say. Are you really honest, especially with yourself, which is where real honesty begins? When did you ever take a real good look at yourself? Yesterday, or maybe last year, or maybe never? Perhaps you’re perfect in the eyes of your own mind, but are you?

Did you ever consider whether you’re a kind person or not? Are you humane? Sincere? Loyal? Diligent in your purpose? But then again, what is your purpose, or do you actually have one?
Perhaps you are one of those people who keep your head down and just wander aimlessly through your existence? Maybe you are a coat tail rider: riding on the coat tails of the few, who stick their necks out, with all effort, in order to make your life better? Then whose coat tails are your riding on, and are they genuine in their efforts on your behalf? Maybe their purpose is self-generated, self-centred? So what happens when their coat tails rip apart, and you’re left sitting in their dust, with their dust becoming mud when it starts raining, and you’re just covered in the mud of your own self-deception?

What can you use within yourself to judge with? Nothing, except your own honesty within yourself, that leads you to judge your existence and to judge others. It’s so nice when your car is bigger than your neighbour’s? So nice to show that you have more than others and there are always others down on their luck. But not you: after all, you are a success in life, or so you think.
Do you look at your car and envy others with a bigger or newer one? It spurs you on to greater things – bigger debts maybe? But you appear to be doing well; and that’s what matters: appearances; but what’s the price? Are you really a great guy or girl, when you can’t look at yourself in the cold light of reason, because you’re too busy looking at others?

So what do you judge yourself to be? Successful? Even clever, perhaps? Then maybe you’re only cunning, a cute guy working the odds, fooling everyone? Perhaps you’re a sharp operator, waiting for someone to fall down the glorious ladder a bit, so you can get what they have cheaply? Maybe you’re the sort of person who wouldn’t sell their hen on a wet day? So have you taken a second look yet, and if not why not? Afraid of what you’ll find?

Are you a believer; and if so, what do you believe? That there’s a god that loves you perhaps? Maybe you only believe this, because no one else would be so foolish? After all, he can’t deny you, can he? Then why do you blindly believe, and not look further? Perhaps truth would be too hard to live with, especially when you’re judging yourself?

Do you cheat; and worst of all, are you cheating yourself?

Do you consider your own well-being firstly?

How do you want to be seen by your fellow man?

How do you want to feel about yourself, or maybe you don’t care?

When you’re judged by others, what do you want them to see and know about you? And, will he or she be right? What yardstick will they use?
Do you have a yardstick; and is it a straight one, slightly bent, or crooked? Think about it.
