Are You Living a Conscious Life?

Are You Living a Conscious Life? 86

“Chance is but a name for Law not recognised.” ~ The Kybalion

“A life lived of choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived of chance is a life of unconscious creation.” ~Neale Donald Walsch

If most people were asked if they lived a conscious life they would probably answer yes – is it not self evident? Consciousness is consciousness, right?

But if a consciousness has been indoctrinated from birth with other people’s ideas, prejudices and truths…. is that a ‘conscious’ consciousness? – or is it a sense bound awareness programmed to be a clone of a greedy, egoistic materialistic culture. A consciousness living life on auto pilot – stuck in a daily routine of sameness – and mouthing the rhetoric of someone else’s thinking in a life that stands still. The mystic Gurdjieff called this state a constant waking sleep.

Is your life standing still – passing you by? Are you tossed like a matchstick on the waves of chance – worried about everything – not knowing what you want or where you are going – if the answer is yes then you are at the mercy of unconscious creation.

Thunderbolts of Unseen Action

Our thoughts are energetically alive, they are thunderbolts of unseen action and if not controlled can wreak havoc in our lives. We are not taught that our thinking creates our reality and when shit hits the fan we call it bad luck – or that’s life! When in truth it has got nothing to do with luck and life….. and everything to do with our thinking. But we don’t know the metaphysical laws that govern this ‘whirled’ so we carry on as normal – do what we always do because that’s what we’re used to doing. We don’t realise that our lives are a reflection of our habitual state of mind.

A Bit of a Shock

When we investigate our thinking and begin to observe our thoughts we are likely in for a shock. It’s quite sobering to discover how much of our fleeting lives we spend bogged down in the cancelled cheque of the past – dwelling on grievances and personal sleights – or day dreaming and wishful thinking on the promissory note called the future. The only time we are truly alive is in the negotiable now – and most of us it would seem don’t visit very often!

Anchored Consciousness

It’s not easy to change our lives – break free of worn out thought patterns and routines. We have to take control in the now and live the life we want, and not let others interfere or tell us what we can or cannot do – what we deserve or don’t deserve.

This is easier said than done but if we want to have a smoother, calmer panorama in life we must persevere…and take stock of the people in our lives – and ask the question: are they inspirational and uplifting, or destructive and exhausting?

Unfortunately toxic people don’t come with a warning sticker plastered on their foreheads but we’ve all met them – in our home life, at work or down the pub. The arrogant superior type who likes to put us down – the spiteful gossiper who can’t tell fact from fiction – the perpetual whining victim who blames everybody else for their circumstances – the control freak who knows everything about everything and can’t wait to ‘put us straight’ – the envious who just hate it when something good happens to us… and the angry, resentful Mr. Negative who has nothing good to say about anything or anybody.

These mindsets make it very hard for us to live a conscious life – they deplete our energy – fracture our thought patterns and anchor us to unconscious creation….in other words they bring chaos into our lives and need to be avoided like the plague.

Conscious Creative Living

Conscious living is about being mindful – having mental clarity not confusion. It means taking responsibility for our lives – packing our own parachute as they say in sky diving circles and not leaving it to others.

Creative living involves a continuous and progressive cleansing – a purification of soul and body.

The change from unconscious creation to conscious action begins in our thinking…. We choose what we want in life rather than settling for the cards we are dealt. Our life is present – it is directed action in motion forever moving with the flow of life.

Re-Connecting With the One Life

“To seek freedom is the only driving force I know. Freedom to fly off into that infinity out there. Freedom to dissolve; to lift off; to be like the flame of a candle, which, in spite of being up against the light of a billion stars, remains intact, because it never pretended to be more than what it is: a mere candle.” ~Carlos Castaneda, Don Juan: the Sorcerer.

Living consciously means we are totally aware of our surroundings – alert in the now and not lost in some nebulous no mans land. Conscious awareness observes the ways of nature, sees the harmony of the dance of life and death. Revels in the singing of the wind, the sshh of waves upon shingle, welcomes the warm sun upon bare skin and marvels at the intricate patterns of butterflies. A conscious life intuitively recognises the energy of the One Life that powers all the dna spacesuits on this planet whether furred, scaled or feathered – feels the pulse of the one Heart in all creation…and knows that separation is just an illusion cast by the matrix to keep us in the sacrificial game.

In the words of the metaphysical poet Thomas Traherne:

“You will never enjoy the world alright till the sea itself floweth in your veins, till you are clothed with heavens and crowned with the stars; and perceive yourself to be the sole heir of the whole world, and more than so, because men are in it who are every one the sole heir as well as you…..”

Indigo boy Anand predicts the disaster of “Six Stars” in February, opens a website

Indigo boy Anand predicts the disaster of "Six Stars" in February, opens a website 99

Abhigya Anand, a popular Indian indigo boy, predicted that under the influence of six stars , an astonishing disaster might happen in February 2021. In addition, Anand announced at the beginning of the new year that he had set up a personal official website to post messages to get rid of social media censorship and fake messages.

” Six Stars” in February 2021

14-year-old Indian boy Anand became popular online because he predicted the outbreak of the epidemic last year. He also predicted that the world would be in danger from November 2020 to November 2021.

He said that Jupiter will enter Capricorn in November 2020, and the disaster will begin again. In particular, the rare conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn on December 21, 2020 will affect the earth, from wars, epidemics to economic collapse, and there may be problems with the vaccine being developed. 

A mutated strain first appeared in the UK. This new strain has a 70% higher transmission rate than the old strain, and has spread to more than 50 countries, and the mutated virus has turned to attack young adults, and many adults Died in the virus. As of January 12, the number of people diagnosed worldwide was 91.38 million, which is equivalent to 1 in every 100 people. All this has confirmed Anand’s prediction about the epidemic.

Anand even predicted that on February 10, 2021, there will be a “six-star connection”, that is, the sun, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and the moon will be connected in a straight line, just like a candied haw. This means that greater dark forces will impact the earth, and there may be astonishing disasters, and the economy may even collapse.

At present, all parts of the world have begun to take measures to close the city and curfew. Will these measures be implemented wrongly? People don’t work anymore. If you don’t work and just eat, how long can you say this economy can withstand?

Anand said that until Jupiter enters Aquarius in November 2021, most of the disasters caused by these astronomical changes will gradually disappear and the world economy will begin to recover.

Anand predictable manner is the use of “Vedic astrology “, also known as ” Indian astrology ” (Jyotish Astrology), it originated in the ancient Indian system of astrology, and Western astrology is different. And 14-year-old Anand is already a master of Vedic astrology.

In addition to being proficient in “Vedic Astrology “, Anand is also familiar with Ayurveda (Ayurveda, refers to Indian traditional medicine), Sanskrit and management. He has obtained a master’s degree in herbal microbiology and is studying for a PhD in financial astrology, so Anand is a real super genius.

Anand sets up an official website

Due to unexplained reasons, YouTube has repeatedly deleted videos, so Anand set up a personal official website (abhigyaanand.com). Friends who are interested in his predictions can now go to his website to watch his videos freely. Log in to the website to directly obtain his updated information, avoiding the interference of Internet censorship and false messages.

In the introduction video, Anand stated in words:

“Tubing has been desperately deleting Anand’s predictions, and these predictions are now being fulfilled. Therefore, we are launching our website to you.”

Anand’s website, for example, predicted in a short film published on April 1, 2020, that “the next (epidemic) outbreak will occur around December 20, 2020.” However, this short film was deleted by YouTube on May 16, and was re-uploaded by a third party.

Anand reminded people in the comment area at the bottom of the video that he does not have any Facebook, Twitter or Reddit accounts. Now someone is issuing false predictions in his name, don’t believe it. 

He said, “Having a social media account does not help. We try to use every alternative platform.”

Anand wrote:

“Because Youtube deleted the film without any reason, threatening Internet freedom, and some people deliberately faked it, so he created a personal website.”

An ancient Greek inscription of 1,500 years dedicated to Christ was discovered in Israel

An ancient Greek inscription of 1,500 years dedicated to Christ was discovered in Israel 100

The team is sure that the inscription comes from a church and not from a monastery. The discovery was reported by the Israeli Foreign Ministry with reference to the Antiquities Authority. It was performed in the Jezreel Valley, which since ancient times was the main battlefield of biblical Israel.

An inscription 1,500 years old writes in ancient Greek “Christ, born of Mary”. This was found by a team of archaeologists in an excavation in northern Israel, a text that was placed above the church door to ward off evil spirits.

The phrase was used by Christians to exorcise the evil eye, a superstition of the Greeks and Romans.

The inscription was discovered during the excavation of the ruins of a once magnificent Byzantine church, probably built during the early Islamic period. The church came to light during the mandatory excavations to cross the new road to the Jezreel Valley.

The researchers also established the identity of Theodosius mentioned in the text, who founded this church. This was one of the first Christian bishops. He was an influential person, the supreme religious leader of the Metropolitanate of Bet Shean, to which the modern village of al-Tayyib belonged.

“This is the first evidence of the existence of a Byzantine church in the village of et-Taiyiba and adds to the other findings that certify the activities of Christians in the area,” said Dr. Walid Atrash of the Antiquities Authority of Israel.

The team is sure that the inscription comes from a church and not from a monastery.

According to the researchers, artifacts from different periods were also found during the excavations. They shed new information on the long history of the settlements that existed in al-Tayyiba, as well as on their status.

Why does Satan’s name mean “light-bearer”?

Why does Satan's name mean "light-bearer"? 101

In modern languages, Lucifer is one of the names of Satan. However, from Latin the word lucifer literally translates as “luminiferous” and comes from the words lux (“light”) and phero (“carry”). What kind of light is this that the infernal ruler carries?

Franz von Stuck.  Lucifer

The ancient Romans called the planet Venus by the word Lucifer, that is, the “morning star”, which is better than all other celestial bodies visible in the morning (as well as evening) firmament. By the way, this name is “tracing paper” from ancient Greek: the ancient Greeks called this celestial entity Phosphorus (from Φωσφόρος – “carrying light”).

Lucifer means ‘that which brings light’. From φῶς (phôs, “light”) +‎ -φόρος (-phóros, “bearing”), from φέρω (phérō, “I carry”).

Why did the name of the star become the name of Satan? This happened as a result of “translation difficulties”. The Bible, in the Book of Isaiah, contains a prophecy about the death of the Babylonian king – a terrible enemy of the ancient Jews. It looks like this:

“… You fell from the sky, morning star, son of the dawn! He crashed to the ground, trampling on the peoples. “

“Morning star” and “son of the dawn” here are nothing more than magnificent oriental titles of the ruler. When Jerome of Stridonsky, the first translator of the Bible into Latin, translated this passage, he translated the Hebrew word הֵילֵל (“heylel”, “morning star”) as lucifer, because that is how the morning star was called in Latin.

However, Christians, contemporaries of Jerome, associated this passage not with the king of Babylon – the embodiment of evil for the ancient Israelites, but with their enemy – Satan. And the word “lucifer”, which was just the title of the Babylonian king, began to write with a capital letter. So the innocuous name of the star became a terrible hellish name.

Jerome’s other translation error led to an amusing misunderstanding. In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, European artists and sculptors depicted Moses – the main biblical prophet … with horns on his head! Why?

Why does Satan's name mean "light-bearer"? 102
Why does Satan's name mean "light-bearer"? 103
Why does Satan's name mean "light-bearer"? 104

The Bible says that when Moses came down from Mount Sinai, his face was radiant. In Hebrew, the words “ray” and “horn” are similar. So Jerome got it: “His face became horny because God spoke to him.”
