Change the name of your God.

Modern Gnostic Christians name our god "I am", and yes, we do mean ourselves.

You are your controller. I am mine. You represent and present whatever mind picture you have of your God or ideal human, and so do I.

The name "I Am" you might see as meaning something like, --- I think I have grown up thanks to having forced my apotheosis through Gnosis and meditation.

In Gnostic Christianity, we follow the Christian tradition that lazy Christians have forgotten that they are to do. That is, become brethren to Jesus.

That is why some say that the only good Christian is a Gnostic Christian.

Here is the real way to salvation that Jesus taught.

Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Allan Watts explain those quotes in detail. Google ---- Alan Watts - On The Book of Eli



Joseph Campbell shows the same esoteric ecumenist idea in this link.
Google ----- Joseph Campbell--On Becoming an Adult

The bible just plainly says to put away the things of children. The supernatural and literal reading of myths.

Regards
DL

Get rid of that "I" aggregates of monkey mind and all the baggage that comes with it. Stay in the silence of presence. Transform and still the mind. The more you listen you the more you can feel. Listening with your soul.

I can suggest an intro book that helps even the oldies.
This is an advanced Path, you know....not for everyone.
But it's the bomb!

"I can suggest an intro book that helps even the oldies."

So what is the intro book to ACIM?

You are right in believing that only God can help you. The way to find God is to read the Bible and find out what he has said to us. You can't rely on your feeling to tell how close you are to God. Feelings can be influenced by many things, including Satan. If you begin seriously studying the Bible he will place many obstacles in your path, including making you feel that you are wasting your time. You need to decide to simply believe that what God tells you in the Bible is true regardless of what you feel about it.

What I've realized is that church, for the most part, has changed since the early times.
Vocal, loud praises to the Almighty with gratitude and thankfulness is largely absent, regarding church format.
There are scriptures related to this, how making a "joyful noise" is a catharsis to the power of God.

This part of your statement is where the problem MAY lay.

"I want to heal from the past."

"To heal" means there are festering wounds.

Your epiphany of "other people".

So I am assuming that your wounds are from other people.

So I would conclude that unforgiveness is the blockage.

I have done work in this area with God/Holy Spirit to be able to forgive the people I once seen as wounding me.

There are many ways that people come to this forgiveness, so I will leave it to you and God/Holy Spirit to formulate the way it should be done.

Just my 2 cents of what stuck out to me.

Is something wrong with me? Tesla's words are energizing me to do what I do, or inspiring me?
