Is Your Name Written in the BOOK of Life?

If you are familiar with the Chapter of Revelation in the Bible, then you have read the phrase “written in the book of Life”.  And many probably read this phrase, and just skip over it, thinking that much of the Bible is merely stories from the ancient past. Or that the Bible is about ancient history, and not about current affairs.

Or some may  think  that this  phrase has nothing to do with themselves, and their own lives? But the truth is… this phrase refers to every living human being, regardless where that human being is located in the whole of Creation?

The ‘Book of Life,’ I believe refers to what the mystics refer to as the Akashic Record, or the record of every Soul that still exists which is kept on the Astral region of Creation, and this record is open for all to see.  And… let us take a moment to discuss the term “Creation”.  The “Creation” was an event that took place, it is not something that is continually taking place relative to we Souls.  The number of Souls is massive, and none but God knows that number.

My point, in terms of the Book of Life, is that all Souls that have not been eliminated are in that Book.  And the “judgement” that takes place at the end of each lifetime is NOT THE FINAL JUDGEMENT OF Revelation  There is a judgement at the end of each lifetime [of a human being], but that is not the Judgement spoken of in Revelation 20:11-15.  11: And I saw a grew white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

[Meaning… there was no place that one could escape this judgement].

Revelation 20:12  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Revelation 20:13  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them:  and they were judged every man according to their works.

Revelation 20:14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Think of the book of life as a giant ledger sheet with one’s good Karma on one side and one’s negative Karma on the other side.  And the balance is one’s judgement [or one’s works],  and the balance  is clear for anyone to weigh, or measure.

So there is apparently a threshold one must meet… and only God knows what that threshold is?  And… if this sounds like a single commitment of a person saying: “I’m sorry,” will somehow erase a ton of unfinished negative Karma, think again!!  It is not God that does not forgive one, it is one’s own record of negative Karma that condemns one.  Mankind has a time [four Ages of Man] in which to reach a positive balance.   And the Final Judgement is the end of that limit.  It is in the book [in this case, the Bible] and if one has not taken advantage of reading and HEEDING the Bible, whose fault is that?

Each Soul inhabiting a human form had to make a commitment to Life, upon being given the gift of incarnating as a human being.  Do not blame God for one’s own failure to live up to the commitment one made.  All one’s lives are written in the Book of Life, and the Law of Karma makes no mistakes.

Life is no joke, it is deadly serious.

Reincarnation, what does it mean?

 

A Short Essay
Revised

by

Brother James, Lo_G
[Lo_G means Lover of God]

Let us begin at the beginning…
In the beginning there was, as they say… A Void. But was this void truly a void [meaning that there was nothing there], or was there something there… but it’s nature was such that it gave the appearance of being nothing, and therefore, a void?
I believe that what is referred to as a void is, in fact, the primordial energy of existence, and it appeared as “nothing” because it was ‘Neutral Spiritual Energy,’ or NSgy, for short. And if you consider the term “Neutral,” one of its characteristics is a lack of resistance. That is, being neutral, it has nothing for matter to butt up against, which is necessary for friction to occur, which is what we often see. That is, the result of a collision of otherwise invisible elements.
So, for me, that primordial energy is what is called the Void. And although the Void cannot be seen, it does have a Sound to it…and this Sound has the name “Word”. And I say this because the Bible itself says that “in the beginning, was the Void,” or, as the Bible also says… In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. and the Word was God.
Does this mean that God was in the Void, or perhaps comprised the Void? And perhaps this also means that God. although appearing like a Void [being invisible], could be identified as a special ‘Word”?
Now, what if that special “Word” was also called by the name Spirituality? And Spirituality, which is invisible to the physical senses, is the operational Energy of God, and thus Spirituality [and perhaps even Reality] can be KNOWN… but only by experiencing what is referred to as the “Word”? And since this Word cannot [apparently] be heard by ones physical ears, how does one go about hearing this “Word”?
What do the mystics say about this question?
The mystics tell us that a part of Man is capable of hearing this Word [but not with ones physical ears]. They say one must develop ones Astral body hearing, and this then will enable one to “hear” the “Word”. And they say this can be accomplished by specific meditation designed to accomplish this task. But they also tell us that to learn this form of meditation may take several lifetimes.

When the mystics speak of the Astral body, they are referring to the Lower MIND Within Man that represents the Astral region of Creation. The Higher MIND represents the Causal region of Creation, and these two are spoken of in the singular as the MIND of Man [which modern mental health virtually ignores] due to the mistaken beliefs of B. F. Skinner, whose fear of his own MIND, in the early 1900s, caused him to deny the MIND of Man, and to create the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’.
___________Or the insane notion that the MIND-level conflicts of mental illness can be treated by denying the MIND of Man, and instead, focusing on the behavior of Man. Of course our behaviors are the means by which our MINDs mask and hide what is causing our behaviors. So BS&bp [Behavioral Science and the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’] is designed to fail mankind. The level of this failure is demonstrated in the high rates of suicide among Veterans, and the rapid rise of sexually conflicted individuals in America.________

four
To return to our discussion of the four simultaneously existing, and yet entirely separate dimensions of Man… it is of great value to remind ourselves that three of the four dimensions of Man are invisible to the brain and physical senses.
For those individuals who are confined to, or limited to the use of their brains and thinking… the idea of the three dimensions of Man that the brain cannot perceive just never enters their thoughts. I refer to this type person as an Intelack type person. Or a Soul that has not [as yet] acquired enough “C’etc” to enable it to resist the negative desires of the MIND… or to readily perceive evil.
________ The symbol “C’etc” is pronounced C_etcetera, and it is the symbol for my terms for the Virtues of Life: Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Acceptance and Empathetic Understanding. Empathetic Understanding suggests empathy, insight, and Intuition, or the Esoteric aspects of an Esoteric Knowledge Man is slowly acquiring by “completing” Karma over many, many lifetimes. Again, people in the West have a choice to make: Either believe that Man only has one time to live and deny three-quarters of the Reality of Man, and Life… or believe Man has as many lifetimes as is required to achieve the C’etc necessary to escape the illusion of Life? One choice keeps one stuck in the illusion, and the other makes one a target of the Intelack people in the world.
Once a Soul incarnates into the Earth plane, regardless what form ones Soul in using, that Soul has begun to collect Karma, and as this Karma grows, ones choice [or limited free-will] is diminished considerably, simply because the Karma one has created demands to be addressed. And the “completion” of this Karma is the Purpose of Life… so it naturally takes precedence over ones design of the Fate Karma ones Soul designs for each lifetime.
There is nothing simple nor easy in the life of any Soul on this Earth plane. And the foregoing introduces three new concepts to the normal person in the West. One is the Astral body of Man; the second concept is that one can “learn” to hear via ones Astral body; and the third concept is that one has more than one lifetime in which to accomplish fulfilling the Purpose of Life.
Would it not be interesting to discover that the primary difference between East and West is whether one believes in Reincarnation or not? Some scholars believe that one or more Popes removed the verses in the Bible that obviously mention the Law of Karma [as ye sow, so shall ye reap], and Reincarnation [which, oddly enough Hebrews 9:27 refers to obliquely… although it has been misinterpreted differently], since perhaps around the fifth century, or some 500 years after the birth of Jesus.
The net effect of this is that the West tends to believe that Man only has one lifetime in which to achieve perfection, while the East believes that Man has as many lifetimes as needed to achieve the Purpose of Life. Of course the only importance to this is what do you believe? Since it is your individual Soul that must acquire the Knowledge to enable it to rise above the illusion of Life? There is no collective salvation or judgement, there is only individual judgement of the individual Soul.
It might be helpful, for those who are not sure about all of this, for me to mention that every living thing has a Soul. The tree, the donkey, Man, and so forth. Therefore, if your Soul was born as a tree… [and your Soul only has one lifetime to live…], is that your only opportunity to acquire perfection as a human being?
Or, is the Eastern view of Reincarnation a more reasonable [and loving] thing for God to do? I have always believed that the Eastern view of Reincarnation is much more God-like that the one-life to live nonsense of Christianity based on one misinterpreted verse in the Bible:
Hebrews 9:27. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
And the East has no complaint regarding this verse, only a much different interpretation. At the end of each lifetime ones Soul [with MIND attached] goes before a judge, and ones Soul goes over how well it did working through the Fate Karma it designed for its just concluded lifetime.
Then. before ones Soul goes to either some Hell for re-education of its MIND, or some Heaven for rest and relaxation, ones Soul designs a new Fate Karma for its next lifetime, which is the natural way all Souls are slowly climbing up the Ladder of Life.
—————– Back to the concept of meditation. Like virtually everything in the West, the dominance of the Left-Hemisphere of the brain [because it is what the MIND uses to communicate its Delusional Thinking to the brain], and thus, we naturally develop a dependence upon the Left-Hemisphere of the brain. And, this then becomes the automatic part of the brain we use to address anything that is new, unusual, or unknown in our lives.
And this tendency is exacerbated by our system of education, and those who tend to gravitate toward teaching [or its Intellectualism], which, in the wrong hands, becomes a subtle form of CONTROL… and a denial of, mocking of, and a punishing of… the natural Intuition of Enlightened children. This is the unstated purpose of Common Core, by the way.
There are children who are ‘naturally’ Enlightened individuals when born. And in the West, with its stance on “one life to live,” the idea that a child can be born with far more Enlightenment than its parents is difficult to comprehend. Because… without a prior opportunity to ‘earn” this Enlightenment, possessing it would mean that God allows inequality in Souls and their “one live to live.” So, those who buy into the “one life to live” idea have no other choice than to deny the Enlightenment of the child before them. With one life to live… it is virtually impossible for any child to be born already in more possession of Spirituality than his or her parents.
And the scorn, mocking, ridicule and physical pain imposed upon Enlightened children by fearful parents and teachers is substantial. But let us praise those Popes whose need for control over mankind caused them to misinterpret the principle laws of God. Sorry, I can’t praise ignorance and fear.
But if you doubt me in this… please read
Revelation (2 verses)
17:5 – And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Not many in the world realize that this reference to Babylon the Great is referring to the Papacy, and ultimately to Rome, the city of seven hills. And who is the greatest supporter of the Antichrist? It is the False Prophet, which is the last Pope [which happens to be the present Pope].
Man proposes, and God disposes… is as true now as it has ever been. How much mankind honors those who expound upon what is and what is not the Word of God… when such people have no idea what God is, or where God is? And these same people teach that all it takes to achieve perfection is to say [after a life of crime, filth, and evil] “I’m sorry”.
God is not mocked, nor is His Law of Karma. As one sows, so shall one reap. And this Law is an Absolute Law. How is it possible to reap what one has sown, if one is forgiven ones sin by simply saying “I’m sorry”?
Yes, God does forgive we Souls… and this is precisely the reason he Created the many Hells on the Astral region of Creation. And by providing us Reincarnation, so that we can experience the Yin side of the Yang [action] Karma we sowed. By doing evil, and then receiving the fruit of such evil oneself… one “learns” all one can KNOW of that evil. And how in goodness sake can this be accomplished in one lifetime as a tree, a horse, or a frog? Or in one lifetime as a human being for that matter?
__________________
Reincarnation is simply a fact of Life, and it is the necessary sister of the Law of Karma. Life is not a theoretical proposition, nor is it one-sided. Nor is it part experience and part imagination. Life is an opportunity for we Souls to struggle our way up the Ladder of Life. And in doing so, we make possible the many transitions that our Souls must make in its journey toward perfection. Our Souls slowly rise in experiential Knowledge born of sowing and reaping the necessary Karma of Life, which was Created for we Souls by God, whose NSgy provided Knowledge of what was needed?
I trust this was helpful in explaining just a bit about the fact of Reincarnation, and how it is an integral part of Life?

Questioning things…

In my new book: Questions About Life…  I wrote this today…

Just a question that pops into my thoughts… are we clear on the concept that we Souls have been in the Creation since God created Man? This concept makes a lot more sense if one is not confined to the notion that this massive physical universe was created for we Souls to experience just ONE lifetime.
To compound my difficulty with the Christian notion that a Soul only has one lifetime to live… is the fact that every living thing requires a Soul. It is the Soul Within a living form that gives that form “life”.
In other words, when you look out of your window, and see a bird, perched in a tree… that bird is [according to Christianity] living the only life it will experience in the Creation. And when it dies, it will remain in the ground, or its parts will be distributed over miles by the wind… and at some future time… its Soul will be judged as to its “works”? And a determination will be made as to whether it continues or is cast into the Lake of Fire?
What “works” will that bird have accumulated over its one lifetime?
Did you realize the notion of one life to live… is supported in the Bible by one verse?
Hebrews 9:27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgement.
Now, at least half of the world’s population does not agree with the notion that Man only has one life to live, but some Pope, or Popes, around the fifth century, decided that this verse meant that Man only had one life to live on Earth. And millions of people, who follow Catholicism, believe what the Pope(s) have interpreted the Bible to mean.
However, using the exact same verse, I will share with the reader what Eastern mystics have said… as it relates to this verse.
And too, in the Bible, in Revelation, it clearly states that the False Prophet will be the last Pope… and this False Prophet will lead many people to accept the Antichrist… and in doing so, these people will confine their own Souls to the Lake of Fire.
Who is correct? Which interpretation is true, and which interpretation best “fits” what God had in mind when he Created the Creation?
In Eastern mysticism, this notion of the Soul and its experience of LIFE… describes Hebrews 9:27 in a very different way. And in this Chapter, and in my discussion of the “Purpose of Life,” I will base my views on this Eastern view… simply because I find [in my 80+ years of this lifetime], that which I am sharing is a more fitting [more loving] view of what God intended for we Souls and His Creation.
In Eastern mysticism, as shared by several religions, both the Law of Karma, and that of Reincarnation, are both key players in fulfilling the Purpose of Life.
The concept of the Law of Karma is a perfect solution to the Creation… if, what one hopes to achieve is Spiritual Equality and Peace. And I say this because the goal of the Law of Karma is to achieve a complete and objective Wisdom regarding what NSgy can be, or do?
And I challenge anyone to find a better solution, given that what one has to work with is nothing. That is, NSgy is Neutral Spiritual Energy, and thus, outside of the Spiritual dimension itself, NSgy does not exist. What math will explain that which cannot be seen, nor conceived?
