Amen to THAT!


Buddhists where I live teach that Christ was just another mystic.
They are quickly turning people into Satan's followers with their ideas/religious teachings, because it is a teaching that opens doorways into the dimensional reality where spirits (aka demons and the like) inhabit.

Yes, I realize ascended masters live in that realm as well. But they only ascend so far (from my viewpoint) and then get stuck. There is only one way out of this holographic projection we call reality, and it is a path laid out by the blood of the lamb. You really have to understand why we live in a matrix, to begin to relate to what I am saying. I know this.

On the other hand,
You can follow any course with Jesus as your guide post (foundation).

But it doesn't work the other way around (do anything you want and get away with it.....like take teachings that can turn you into a black mage), without corruption occurring.

People attempt to gain power/control over their environment, because it feels like one way, to get something, other's don't have. It is the egoic self at work.

It is not any way to be, and expect anything to work out for yourself (in this dimensional reality). Satan has got it all locked up (I've looked). Every path eventually ends up in his hands, except Jesus's way.

I appreciate your intention, and wish you success. In these turbulent times, when some intolerant fanatics are unwisely ready to die for their faiths instead of living them, it is important that the common denominator of all the religions is emphasized and an atmosphere of peace,cooperation and empathy is created.

My own research concludes that evil originated with the fall (descent) of man from the garden of Eden, due to consuming of the apple (satan's line/tree). It therefore would be that Satan is the originator of all evil Earth side, and not a typical human attribute.

I respect your research.

But why blame Satan for all evils and ills and attributing responsibility to him solely. That could amount to a lack of self-responsibility on our part, which is a satanic trait itself.

I would say that progress comes if we accept our shortcomings and deficiencies honestly and work on them, without putting the blame on others or other entities.

As the saying goes, " Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure."

Ajay just referring to Eckhart's quote, which was all encompassing (I mean it said all evil was originating from human unconsciousness). I say it isn't originating from man (current day) alone.

And as I said, I respect your views.

Whether evil originates from Satan or from human beings, evil is evil, and the best antidote to it is mindfulness and love.

Hi Ajay,
This is a difficult topic to discuss, as I am pretty much alone in my views about evil/satan.

If I hadn't had a personal experience that verified the existence of both, I wouldn't bother to ever bring it up (it is upsetting, disquieting and so forth).

Plus in our modern world we are led to not believe in such things.

Mindfulness itself, seems to be an idea of buddhism (right? correct me if I am off here). Buddhist believe Jesus is a mystic (teacher etc.). That is no secret. In fact, until last year, when Jesus began communicating directly to me (and god as well), I just didn't really think about it.

It just seem alien, to my way of thinking (having gone down the road of enlightening myself).

Even when what I thought were aliens remote viewed me and scared the willies out of me, several years ago, I again, just thought of them as negative aliens....rather than realizing I had a direct communication from a fallen angel.

Just the way it goes sometimes.

What we are led to believe, by peers, TV viewing and so forth got it all wrong (backwards in fact).

We arn't living in a dual matrix (which is what is taught in spiritual circles....though it does appear that way, at first, in my view). Instead, there is an actual god of light (lucifer) and an architect's unseen hand (god/jesus/holy ghost trinity).

One is emitting a source of evil, and one of holiness/grace/good.

But you have to be an advanced master of enlightenment, to see this for yourself. Nothing I expect anyone anywhere to master (as buddhists are busy setting up their own version of nirvana...which won't get far, in my opinion....it will just be swept away...in the final hours of the (fallen ones) /gods/lucifers reign here).

Nothing I expect the luciferians here to agree with (though they seem to have extra priviledges on this forum....so this may be my last post. I get tired of being energically attacked by them). I guess this is one of their 'bases' of operation. Talking christians and spiritual minded folks to participate on a forum that openingly addresses witchcraft (which just begs satan to get involved...truly).

I think your being a little too harsh on Buddhism

Everyone of all religions are looking for the same thing : bliss and happiness even if the person is doing it in the wrong ways


Do you know what those words bliss and happiness Pertain to ? The word is Blessedness. A lot of people don't know that.

And our Original Blessedness which comes from God even before we ventured into this world is that innate divine happiness and bliss we once had. Original sin on the other hand is trying finding happiness in the wrong places (Adam and eve had it all within but chose to go without) becoming attached to those things that only bring temporary happiness- whether it is addictive thinking, addictive substances, addictive pleasure, addictive behavior etc. That is what it means to be a sinner,- an addict, attachment. And the Buddhist and Catholics teach non attachment. That is why all those blessings in church and blessing by priests and blessings of prayer are mindful reminders of your own soul-joy within, and that ever new true happiness inside is what brings us closer to divine communion.

The Buddhists can be more Christian than actual Christians sometimes are

With thought, meditation, and study it becomes apparent that we are more and other than this evolved organic aspect, in ( illusory) time and space.

That, we are among the third of the rebellient angelic that is spoken of in the Bible, which is why "redemption" is necessary, and for Whom Jesus came, concerning the, "lost".
