From form to the Formless, from Adam mind to Christ mind.

What did James Say?

This 5 minute audio is packed! James starts with the concepts of the first-fruits and the engrafted Word. The Word that was breathed into Adam; but then we forgot our true nature. James describes unconsciousness as like being dead. But by getting our priorities right (putting Spirit first), we rise again into consciousness. We move from form to the Formless, from Adam mind to Christ mind.

We’re here to help each other back into full consciousness. Like bridges over troubled water; Jesus, Buddha, Moses, Muhammad (and all the great prophets) came back and walked with their brothers.

And finally, the nothingness of evil (resist not evil). We don’t give power to evil. And we shouldn’t export it by trying to fix other people. James points out how some of our Muslim friends have misunderstood jihad. The Prophet meant it as an internal struggle (not fighting other folks). And see how this relates to the last scripture quote below, “for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.”

John 1:13 King James Version (KJV)
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

James 1:18-21 King James Version (KJV)
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of Truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

Real inner knowing.

What did James Say?In this 2-minute audio, James discusses the power of real inner knowing. Beginning with a reference to Psalm 127 as the foundation, he creates a modern-day parable which compares the Internet to our connection with the Divine.

Wake up and have no fear.

What did Mike write?

That kingdom Jesus talked about is now; if we are open to a new way of thinking, seeing, and being. “Metanoia (new mind),” as Jesus called it. We must talk less, and listen more. We must wake up.

In his later years, people would come to Buddha and ask, “Who are you? What are you?”

“Are you a God?” “No.” “An angel?” “No.” “A saint?” “No.” “Then what are you?”

He answered, “I am awake.” His actual name was Siddhartha Guatama; but he became know as Buddha – the “Enlightened One” or the “Awakened One.” In Sanskrit, the root budh means to wake up and to know.

All of humanity is in various stages of waking up. Some of us are holding on to our finite minds out of fear. Fear of our ego’s death, fear of letting go. Others are being pulled towards infinite Mind, loving the Unknown. As we wake from the “Adam dream,” what seemed real fades in the light of a new Reality. Our enemies become our friends, our problems become our challenges, our fears become our hopes.

We are in an observer created universe. If we are unhappy with the state of the world; many of us try to fix the world and are disappointed with the results. But if we change our mind, then the world changes. As Einstein put it, “No problem can be solved by the same consciousness that created it.” As we change, as we are born again; everything changes.

In the Hindu Upanishads it is said, “When a man finds his existence and unity in the Self – who is the basis of life, who is beyond the senses, who is formless, inexpressible, beyond all predicates – then alone does he transcend fear.”
