    We discovered the Enlightenment in the 17th and 18th centuries where we discovered that power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    So the steps you want to take are away from the Enlightenment, away from evidence and reason, and into the paranoia of, "ultimate power".

    Possibly this is because you are influenced by a powerful country steeped in paranoia, or it may be you are reacting to having met, "ultimate power", as a child and repressed the memory. And now you seek to regain your memory by becoming the, "ultimate power", yourself.

    But standing in your path is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948.

    I found the following passage taken from Ene's The Spiritual Laws of the Universe as Best as I can Currently Understand Them thread to be a treaure trove:

    First, please realize that it takes a while to build up to my point and what I'm going to talk about isn't microwave philosophy, it's multi-layered and far-reaching.

    Secondly, I write in simple terms. I like simple language. I will do my best NOT to use a twenty dollar word if a fifty cent one will do the job. I like simplicity, so please bear with me in that and don’t take it as a sign that I’m unintelligent. My goal is to communicate, not to impress.

    Thirdly, realize that all I am about to write is based purely on my own understanding and is being written with only the intent to share my understanding of the world and the universe with those who care to listen. In no way am I attempting to alter, judge or persuade you. However, I hear a lot of people online knocking spiritual principles [to the point of wishing all of us dead who choose to believe in a spirit world] they obviously know little about. Just because a person has a degree in physics, it doesn't automatically qualify them to practice internal medicine. In the same way, a person who has never prayed or studied any spiritual writings really doesn't know enough to criticize anyone's faith or religion. That's narrow-minded and one-sided.

    Ultimately, each person believes what he or she wants to believe anyway. Still, it may be that somebody out there will see something of value in what I have to say, that it may mean something in someone’s life. It means everything in my life. If my words offend you then go away.I will not argue with you. I dislike conflict and I really won’t debate you to try to prove my point. If my words mean something to you or if you want to inquire in a spirit of mutual respect and sharing, then stay. But whatever you do, don’t get all huffy and try to set me straight. It’s my blog. It’s my thoughts and I’m only inviting you to read them, not forcing you to agree with them. But I will not respond to mean-spirited criticism.

    What I believe cannot be summed up in a single post, maybe not in a hundred posts and I doubt that given a lifetime I could accurately put it into words, although Heaven knows I try. Nevertheless, here goes.
    Okay, point taken, people reading this should be open to the ideas presented.

    Ancient philosophers believed that the here and now are but a mirror of reality, that our time on planet earth is much like an existence spent inside a cave and all that we perceive to be reality is but a reflection of true reality. I believe they were closer to the truth than some of us are today. Nothing that exists physically can exist without some causative agent acting upon it to make it exist. Therefore the cause of the existence of the physical universe must be non-physical. It must supersede the limitations of the physical universe. That would mean that the physical universe as we know it must have had a causative agent and that it must have had a point when it came into existence, whether in a flash or over time, is unimportant to me. It is here. That’s what is important to me and the amount of time it took for it to become is irrelevant to the fact that it is here. I will call this causative agent, The Self-Sufficient One. And I will use the pronoun, “he” just for simplicity’s sake, not because I believe that such a being could actually be bound or defined by something as confining as gender.
    Indeed, existence as we see it fails to reflect how intricate it really is. We have no clear idea what the higher, non-physical aspects of the Universe are, more still to merge with them. And then we dan't even know what the prime mover was that moved creation into causation; who was the Creator? Perhaps he was a witness of sorts, and by seeing the formless, by gazing into the void, creation took shape; something came from nothing. He may have spoken some kind of magic word, like how the Bible says God made the mighty declaration "Let there be Light!". The words breathed fire into the equations and gave us a Universe to describe. If we can decipher what they mean, it may show us the shining path back to the beginning.

    The Self Sufficient One exists outside the bounds of time and laws of physics. In fact, I believe, that he created the linear existence in this temporal world for a specific purpose. The Self Sufficient One decided to create something just for the sake of creating it, just as a human artist might decide to create something because it brings her pleasure. So he created for "his good pleasure" or as folks around here might say, “He made everything that he wanted to make, just because he wanted to make it.” Among his creations were various entities with amazing capabilities. He created things for them to do and took great joy in these beings. Just as an artist's work is a part of that artist made reality, these beings were a part of the Creator made alive. He made them in such a way that they could never be destroyed. He made all the matter and energy consisting of them constant and dictated that nothing he created could ever be uncreated. All that exists is eternal because he is eternal. It could merely be changed as in the law of conservation of mass and energy. I believe he established perimeters or laws upon his creation, for the very nature of a creation suggests a limitation not present in the creator. I guess you could say that it is ‘artistic logic’. Among these living creatures there was one [I’ll call him Beautiful One] who desired to also have the creative abilities of his maker so he began to seek them, but the Self-Sufficient One could not make this one his equal, because it was not possible. It would be like me, as an author, giving the characters in my story the ability to rewrite the story without my intervention. So, when the Self-Sufficient One explained to this one that he was only a created being and not the Supreme Being, this one disagreed. Not only did he disagree, he convinces multitudes of other created being to disagree along with him. You see, he was very good with his own brand of limited logic and he was very convincing to any created being that would listen.
    God, whoever or whatever that may be, must take great glory in his creation, and all of its various manifestations by which it looks inside itself, into its own true nature; I am that I am. Perhaps such a being or power with this kind of supreme perfection must have transcended all restrictions, achieved liberation from all limitations. The great task before life at our current stage must be to seek the higher source, to quest for the greater levels of being. Through this process, we may develop and evolve to a point where we can become co-creators with the divine. We must first however have chaos inside to give birth to a dancing star. The next step in the chain then is the problem of evil and triumphing over tribulation.

    Beautiful One said that he was his own creator and believed that he could create a reality better than the one the Self-Sufficient One had made, so he accessed his creator of being unfair. He wanted an existence without the Self-Sufficient One. He made strong assumptions, because even though he lacked the abilities of his maker, he was still capable of more than those of us bound in this temporal dimension which is governed by the laws of physics and mortality can understand. So the Self-Sufficient One agreed to let him give it his best shot. He gave him a little thing called a solar system and told him to create to his heart's content. He even gave him the building blocks to do it with, but still Beautiful One lacked the ability of the Creator to just will something into existence. His attempt was a failure and the world he had been given was chaotic and devoid of life.....I have to go teach a class now....more to come.
    The great tragedy of our current civilization is our lowly position down the ladder. The premature suffering and death of millions is primarily tracible to this cause. If we wish to overcome this problem, we must begin by seeking enlightenment, and the world peace that would follow as we come to respect individuality and appreciate other points of view. If we could accomlish this task, it would be the top of the mountain for our species, but to reach the zenith of the sky and the stars of the firmament, we must next seek ultimate power and unified love. With these goals in mind to look up to, and with the crowning achievments that lead us to our peak, we could redeisgn the creation into our own image of perfection.

    I'm glad you responded to my post Ene - it needs a place here in my thread.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ene View Post

It is an intriguing concept. King Solomon said that life and death are in the power of the tongue [the human tongue] and Jesus said that whatever a man or woman says and does not doubt in his/her heart [spirit] then that person will have whatever he or she says.

    I like that. One man I know of says it so aptly, "As it was in the beginning so it shall be in the end."

    I like how you describe this. I think that limitations would mean nothing to such a being. I think that limitations as we know them can only exist in a finite world, or rather a universe bound by time and physicality. I'm not sure it's actualy coming out the way I mean it. Sometimes, I have a concept but I lack words to fully articulate or write the notion that gnaws at the back of my mind.

    Yes. I agree. In Bagua we call it the "way" or the "tao". Ironically, the first followers of Jesus described themselves as being "in the way." C.S. Lewis spoke of this connection. Terms and concepts associated with Western and modern Christianity came about as a result of....well, that's a whole other can of worms and they can be let out on another day. I have a meeting in ten minutes. haha.

    I think we already have that ability, but to a large extent, we have been blinded by the here and the now. I liken it to a child born with a special ability but never realizing he had that special ability because he had been told all of his life that it was impossible.

    Good point.

    Drats...it is time for the meeting now. {I always dread meetings}. I must leave this conversation for now. However, there is a saying, "Oh, death where is your sting? Oh, grave, where is your victory?" I like that. Thanks RaptorWizard, for seeing beyond the here and now and for questioning things that are not always tangible. I like how you use both your mind and your intuition. Perhaps, and this is a stab in the dark, but perhaps, intuition is a gift from the plane that "transcends". I think everybody has it.

    Thank you, Raptor Wizard, for moving this. I meant to put it both places but got pulled away from my machine before I could accomplish the task.

    For our honor to be intact, we need to see it by asking a question. We create a bastion to ward off the weakness. There is a desire to achieve something, a final understanding of our scenario in life. There is a reason we are not in Heaven. We are living history. We have to make it and find the way to Heaven. We have to be on that level to be there with honor without destroying it. We are the world. Everything about our life needs a force present. If we are in Heaven these forces would be removed and we would be different. We are in a river that we drink from to incarnate into physical form from the timeless world, and these progress with everlasting life. We desire to meet the challenges and rise above them.

    This world is Hell. Hell is meant to teach our soul something, which we continuously undergo, and which could take many lifetimes. We are in the lower density within our material bodies. There is a huge spectrum through which we experience this place, increase our frequency, and rise. We are on the edge of a huge spiritual evolution shift. We develop on this planet and then go out into space.

    The most personal God that we can have is character and love, I am that I am. There is one force, love, that everything is a part of, and makes everything possible. I shall prove to be what I am. When we pray we should talk to God with the force and feeling of our true character, the nature of everything. I will have an endless future with complete potential. Our character is not us, it is what we have, and that is love. That is what we must talk to in prayer to expand, in which God can give people dreams and reveal secrets. This is at the core, the center of our being. This force with belief can give us anything. Ask love to show us the way, the ruler of everything.

    We can create entities in our head with belief, a conduit to personal knowledge. Opinion is the substance and a formulation from which new notions can spring from a growing pool. Everything is real. There may be forces that seek to destroy what is real. The void is always there and has to be there. The creation of existence out of everything began with a witness, where everything was one, but a witness made 2 things sex, so the nothing created everything. The witness is everything, and he made nothing, and impossibility before it existed, by the power of his language, the word that gave us room for more. This gave us something rather than nothing.
