Trump’s Great Acquittal Speech: How His Center of Gravity Is Transforming the GOP, America, and the World

February 9th, 2020

Very inspiring watching Trump’s wonderful acquittal speech. He went off script and called it a celebration. You can see the ‘gravity’ of his presence in the room. Everyone around him respects him, and are getting stronger in their own right, and they see he is the center of the gravity – he is the leader, the heart and soul. It is his genius that initiated the movement and makes it work. In the room there are a lot of very smart, ambitious men and women for their own careers, but they are coming together in a way we have never seen the GOP do. Most of the leaders, probably hundreds of them now, would run through a brick wall for Trump! He masterfully cultivates this loyalty for the good of all because he knows a unity of talented people is very powerful. Trump just went through a series of intense attacks from the left for three years. He was the center of the attack, and he stood up to the injustice, and has surprised and inspired everyone. The full fury of the deep states irrational hatred is focused on taking him down. Trump described the dems in a very interesting way. He said, ‘all you people here are geniuses but the dems are geniuses too. They stick together like glue. They took a completely false accusation and rode it all the way to the brink of impeachment. They are good at what they do. They are totally crazy and wrong but good at it” (my paraphrase). This way of saying it inspires intense desire to fight, and to win.
In his speech Trump also focuses on commending several leaders, one by one, for being great warriors. He described how they fought for him ‘as if it their lives were at stake’ (trump’s words); and how they also had to take a lot of heat. Trump didn’t want it to be this way, he said it wasn’t what he signed up for, especially for his family, but week after week he stood up to it and kept winning. He did it for all the right reasons – God, country and neighbor, and I think the people in that room learned a whole new level about doing their job for the right reason. They all went through a crucible experience together that created a deep love and bond, like people who have been in military battles together. The stakes were super high.
At one point in his speech Trump gives high praise to his legal team and tells a little story. He tells how his lawyers told him, ‘We are in the right here and the law is all in our favor’, and Trump said to them, ‘It doesn’t matter, I know I did nothing wrong, but they are going to use every trick in the book to win’. Pelosi, shitty and their crew are like terrorists, except intellectual terrorists. They don’t have a conscience like us, they will lie, twist and deceive to any end they can get away with in order to win. It’s a terrible double standard, but for our own integrity it is important conservatives do not stoop to the the ways of the dem leaders.
The effect of all this is, I believe, that the GOP has been purged of a great amount of corruption. God works to not let evil go unseen for then it cannot be removed. The experience of seeing and fighting all this lying and cheating makes one loath it, and not want to be like it; I think it has formed a conviction in the kind of leaders many in the GOP want to be. Not only are they inspired by Trump’s example of being an honest, transparent fighter for the people, but the left has shown they will attack and investigate for the slightest reason, or no reason. Trump ‘joked’: ‘I have to watch out I don’t jay-walk or they will try to impeach’. This effect is by no good intent of the left, but it is the reality. The left also, who feel very entitled to corruption, will think twice now before gettin caught lining their pockets. They will have to cut back, because their methods and pattern of corruption has been greatly exposed by GOP fighters.
As Trump said in his speech the left’s intention was to inflict pain on people to get their way. All this makes me think of God’s providence at work. God uses the evil as much or more as he uses the good to effect change. The pain the left inflicted cuts deep and causes an abhorrence of evil and a determination to fight it and not be that way. Only God can orchestrate all this. He guides us to see and do what we can not do and see on our own. He does so for the sake of our repentance, and so we learn in our stubborn heart to put him first. I think it’s true that someone like Trump has the foresight to give evil enough rope to hang themselves, but nothing like what God does. We learn from the inspiration of having a great economy and a new vision of God in America, and from the abhorrence of seeing the sickening level of corruption that is among us.
With God hope springs eternal (even for California). Trump’s ability to get results and articulate a vision full of hope is magnificent. As he says, we just might have to endure more winning that we can stand.

In Praise of Jesus: Principles of His Love and Wisdom, and How It Is that He Achieved the Inconceivable

January 10th, 2020

IN PRAISE OF JESUS
The reason we can intuitively see God in nature, in the innate moral yearnings of man, and in the Word, is that these are the three realms of life through which correspondences work. Nature: Everything in nature has a corresponding counterpart that is its first cause in heaven and the spiritual world. The human form: Everything in the human body and soul (the soul looks exactly like the body except it is spiritual) has correspondence with heaven and the spiritual world in every minutest detail. The Bible: Every Word in Holy scripture has correspondence with heaven for every Word is divine truth from the will of God. Each of these three also correspond to each other so the human form is a universal form in the universe. If one were able to see the entirety of the universe they would see that it is in the shape and form of a man, the Lord Jesus Christ. As the Bible says we are made in God’s image, and the whole universe is also made in God’s image. God has always been in the human form and occupied the innermost of all things, but He had never been born in the natural/material world. But then God was born on earth as Jesus. Now God was in the natural and had to go through the most rigorous process that ever has been or ever will be. (We will never comprehend how much He loves us! Yet I will always try!) In order to resurrect Jesus had to go through the process of overcoming the infinite inertia of the material world, and the hereditary evil contained in His natural body from brith.
I will give you an example from the theory of relativity that helps to show how inconceivably rigorous this is. In Einstein’s theory it is said that if an object were to reach the speed of light its mass would become infinite. But no object can reach the speed of light because the infinite inertia of matter prevents it. Similarly, we know that no matter ever enters the spiritual world. Humans, and all things of earth, die and the body becomes dust. These are laws of nature and the spirit that are never broken. But Jesus so cleansed His body of hereditary evil by overcoming all temptations, He so put all the forces of evil in their place (hell), and He fulfilled all prophecy written about Him in the divine Word – that He was filled with infinite light and love, and He made His human body divine! It merged in union with His divine soul (the Father). Jesus reached the ‘speed of light’ and became the whole of divine truth that He lived and fulfilled. (This is called the glorification process, which I describe in great detail on my blog). This is the miracle of miracles that transcended all the laws of physics.
In His life Jesus manifested the highest love that ever existed. The power with which He used to merge His human body with the divine ‘drew all things unto Him’. This means He paved the way for man to be saved, He restored man’s capacity to receive the light of heaven. He who is the ‘highest love’ is the ONE who enters the innermost of all things, and is the internal cause of all things. This is how He is the Alpha and Omega, the infinite and the innermost There is a sphere generated from the Lord, who is in the midst of the spiritual sun, that is the cause of all fruitfulness and reproduction in the universe. This sphere is seeded with the image of God and manifested in infinite variety in heaven and earth; it’s a sphere of influence, a force known as ‘conatus’. It is the unseen creative force in the universe that causes forms in the universe to construct. I believe science observes this force and calls it ‘dark matter’. It is a principle of divine order that the nature of the creator is repeated and reflected in all of his creation, thus the information contained in the conatus/dark matter always tends toward and constructs according to the infinite processes contained in the human form. It does this in degrees, some apparent like human beings, some mediate like plants, and some remote like geology. But looked at in a cosmic level all of these things serve and function by processes that correspond to the human form. In praise of Jesus.

How Marriage in Heaven Is Not Like on Earth. Analysis of Luke 20:27 on the Resurrection and Marriage (And Yes There Is Sex in Heaven): Inspiration from the Internal Meaning of the Scripture

May 4th, 2019

 Most people without a lot of religious affiliation agree with the idea that there is marriage in heaven. I am active on twitter and find that there are many, mostly evangelical christians, that roundly deny this because of the verse in scripture, Luke 20:27, where Jesus appears to say there is no marriage in heaven. I am a hospice chaplain and many times I have sat with a spouse who knows in their heart that they will be with their loved one once again in heaven. You don’t have to be a hospice chaplain to experience this, many who have lost loved ones experience this perception. (In fact in my view you have to be hard hearted to not sense the wonder of seeing the beloved again in heaven.) You can tell the ones who are in true love; they have no interest or need of another partner. They seek the beloved, and know they will be with them again. This is because what is spiritual looks to the eternal, what is worldly only to the temporal. This is expressed in the scripture, ‘what God has put together, let no man put asunder’. Nevertheless, I would like to look at the scripture on marriage that most point to. (In a second article on this subject I will adduce several other scriptures which directly refer to marriage in heaven).

Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage.35 But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage,36 and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection. 37 But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’[b]38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”

The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. This sentence describes earthly marriage. ‘This age’ refers to the external sense of our time in life, or the time of marriage on earth. External development always proceeds the internal, because earth is the foundation of heaven, the two need each other symbiotically in order to exist. The natural is the base for the growth of the internal. Marriage on earth can have many causes and reasons, some of which are developmental, and some of which are false. For example, on earth there can be arranged marriages, marriage for the sake of children, for sex, for prestige, for money, and so on. There are also marriages that begin in love, that it is in an innocent state (some would say infatuation), and it develops into true love – or not. Nevertheless, even if it is not true love marriage on earth is sacred in its purpose and has good uses, and is meant to be maintained with integrity to the end if at all possible.

But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage. This refers to the afterlife and to the nature of marriage in heaven. Those who are worthy are those who love the Lord and lived a good life and are thereby able to enter heaven. The age to come and in the resurrection of the dead teaches that there is an after life. Our soul does not die but lives eternally. God made us to be destined for heaven; we have a soul and consciousness made in his image and this cannot die. What He creates is eternal by virtue of its internal connection to the Lord. Will neither marry nor be given in marriage makes the distinction that marriage on earth is not like it is in heaven. In heaven there can be no external reason for marriage; in heaven the external and false reasons are simply not possible because in heaven we are our soul, so the pair can only bond based on the true love and wisdom in their soul. The soul is the entire human form, just as the body is, but it is the spiritual form of it that is our inner self. In the spiritual world the ruling love of every person is seen and experienced; we cannot hide there as on earth. The scripture is telling us that in heaven marriage is only from true love, there are no external reasons for it. It is from friendship, tender love, wisdom; it is a delight of love from full perception of each other, a complete partnership. The partners know and love each other in every particular of talent, character and disposition, and this love grows greater for eternity. Each partners internal will delights in the others good more than them self. 

They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection. This means that all who have ever been born and will be born are the child of God. We are a child of God in the sense that the human soul is a receptacle of life from God; like the eye is an organ that receives light from the sun, the soul is an organ (the highest form in the universe) that receives life (love and wisdom) from God. This verse also means that all humans are made to be in the Lord’s kingdom, so when we live well we can be prepared for heaven. In regard to marriage this means that only those who love the Lord can enter heavenly marriage. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. To enter heaven one must acknowledge that Jesus is the divine human, and the one God of heaven and the universe, the one who created us and gave us life. But it is very important to understand that it is part of the Lord’s infallible justice that even if one did not know of Jesus on earth, but lived in such a way that they acknowledged God in some way and did good to others then the state of their soul can be taught to see that Jesus is the God of heaven. Then they can enter, and many do, often more easily than Christians who have fixated doctrines. 

But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. By this the Lord again teaches that there is an after life and everyone enters the after life. I think it is also implied in this verse that one will enter either heaven or hell in the afterlife. And to enter heaven, depending on a person’s state of love and how they lived in the world, it requires an intense, or not so intense, preparation to finally be able to enter there. (This is known as vastation and a huge subject for another article.)

 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive. This re-affirms that there is an afterlife by virtue of our unbreakable bond to God who created us as I described before. 

A lot of people say that we can’t know much about heaven, but anyone that listens to the spiritual sense of the Bible (and of life) can absorb its principles and internalize them. Everything in heaven is relational and takes place by a process just as much as it does here on earth. People tend to have the vague idea that what happens there does so in some magical way. In heaven we are in the same human form as here except we are continually growing into the bloom of youth, our abilities are hundreds of times more refined and astute than here because we are not encumbered by the slow processes of the material. We do not have the natural body but a spiritual body, which is the soul that we had in our body while here on earth and looks the same.  All happiness in heaven is based on use and the expression of internal skill in the service of others and God. Marriage love is the highest use in heaven because it fulfills the highest purpose.

Think about this from within yourself for a moment. Beauty is the form of love. The Bible says of true earthly marriage and especially heavenly marriage that ‘the two shall become one’. This speaks directly to the principle of Union which is the nature of God, of life, and the origin of all spirituality. Union is always a dynamic use between two different things that serve each other in oneness (as in male and female, earth and sky, heaven and the church, body and mind, love and wisdom, the heart and the lungs). In the principle of union the individual entities become ever more particular in their distinct identity while working together in an ever increasing symbiotic harmony. In heaven men and woman become more beautifully and distinctly in the form of a man and woman (for eternity); and in so doing become more and more wise and happy and ‘one’ in the deepest desire of their will. The more the two become one in marriage the more the individuals become their true self and perceive that God is the source of all Good.  It is invaluable to understand that our soul is a receptacle of life from the Lord; just as the eye is an organ that receives light, our soul is a spiritual organ that receives love and wisdom from God. Furthermore, all angels are former humans. We have all the parts of the body there as here, and we have places to live, churches, gatherings, magnificent gardens, cities, and a million other such things of life. The human form is a universal form because God is in the human form from the beginning, only he is infinite and we are finite. We are made in his image, only He is the source, and we are receptacles. Our freedom, will, and body are gifts from Him.

And yes, there is sex in heaven, only it is from pure love and innocence. There is nothing lascivious in it as here. This is very hard for many religious types to accept, but the resistance comes from their own pre-conceptions. People who love the Bible from common sense have no resistance to this idea because they know from experience and an intuitive spiritual sense that all life is relational by nature. (This truth is also entirely Biblical, which is what Evangelicals want to see, and which I will show further in the second article on this subject.) The mistake that some religious people make is to put doctrine before life. This is not what the Bible teaches. Doctrine is meant to serve life. Jesus teaches to love first, not impose doctrine first. Men and woman have all the parts of the human form in heaven as they do here; everything in heaven has use, and has a profound correspondential purpose. This is pictured no-where more profoundly than in the beautiful and sacred use between the genitals of a man and a woman. Yes! the genitals are in their origin wonderfully Godly, moral and spiritual. The physical use of the genitals is a reflection of the spiritual use and nature of Man and Woman: a man being a form of wisdom and a woman a form of love; and the two enter into a joyous union together. Like yin and yang, both a man and woman possess the faculties of love and wisdom, but a man is primarily a form of wisdom and a woman that of love. As C. S. Lewis said (paraphrase), ‘God is the inventor of pleasure and all the delights of life, the devil just abuses them’. All the delights of life come from use, that is, the expression of internal skill that magnifies joy in ourself and in each other. Touch is the essential expression of love and it is many times more exquisite in heaven. Sex in heaven is a magnificent and beautiful expression of love; it is completely private between conjugal pairs who love with a pure love. It is a gift from the Lord and they give all praise to Him.

Sex, love, procreation, marriage, and heavenly partners – all correspond to each other – and are on a continuum that fulfills the highest purpose in all creation, that is, to be born and go on to fulfill the end purpose of every individual by becoming angles in the Lord’s kingdom! The orgasm is the most transcendent experience of the body because it is the natural correspondent of the most transcendent spiritual experience, which is the unspeakable happiness of true love and partnership. Touch is the sense that fulfills the expression of inspired conjugal love.

Let us take a moment to take a look at the source of Marriage love. Marriage love originates in God, the divine human. In Him is the Holy Marriage between His divine soul and divine body, a bond that Jesus formed in the glorification process that resulted in the resurrection. From the Holy marriage in Him proceeds the pre-eminent sphere of all spheres called he conjugal sphere. This sphere is the heat in all living things that is compelled to procreate; and it is much more than that, it provides the fruitfulness in all life, a profound source of joy and fulfillment. It is implanted from creation for men and woman to desire each other and to bond in a love that brings the highest happiness possible. Of course on earth we are in the balance between good and evil so all things can become perverted, but not so in heaven. God himself has no needs but one, and that is to be of use. He exercises His use in all the individuals of humanity. His purpose is for all people to become angels and enter heaven and live in use and happiness for eternity. But human beings in order to be alive and human must be free. Freedom is the only way a person can have sovereignty and identity; freedom is thus sacred for it is the means of salvation, and at the same time it is the cause of Hell. Hell is for those who reject God’s love and purpose.

 

A Description of the Immense Joy of the Angels that Visited the Shepherds in the Field

December 19th, 2016

The correspondence in the star that the kings followed is a good example of how holiness is the marriage of the natural and the spiritual. With God being born on earth, a great conjunction was restored between heaven and earth. God was physically entering the natural level for the first time. Because of this conjunction, by the law of correspondences, it could not be otherwise that a light would shine in both. The natural is the foundation of the spiritual, and what happens in one must have its counterpart in the other. They are connected so they affect one another, although they are separated by a discrete degree as explained before. In the spiritual world, the Lord always appears to the angels as the spiritual sun. So, in the process of His entering the natural world, light from the star was visible, even in the daylight on earth, for a time. I would conjecture that there may have been some kind of supernova in a star far away that burned so brightly that it could be seen shining in the daylight. The supernova would be a natural correspondence with the spiritual event. Or, I suppose it is possible that the Lord allowed the spiritual sun to be seen for a time, similar to the way He allowed the shepherds and many others to see light from heaven for a time. Either way, it was utterly holy, and it took place according to the law of correspondences.

In the moment of union there is revelation and inspiration, and the light burns brighter just as it did in Mary’s moment of sacred passion. The angels of heaven rejoiced greatly at this new hope for the restoration of good on earth because their great love, desire, and work is for the salvation of others more than anything else. As shown in the story of John the Baptist, the angels of heaven deeply lamented the great darkness that had overcome the earth and that hardly anyone knew the Lord at that time. So, upon receiving the great news that the Lord had taken upon Himself the extraordinary mission of being born on earth in order to save the world, their rejoicing was great beyond measure. The light from the star seen on earth was only the tip of the iceberg; it was a bleeding over, so to speak, of the immense joy and light bursting forth in heaven for the sake of earth. The divine itself was entering the natural world – the greatest event in history – and the star was the manifestation of the glory of this brightly burning union. The gospels give us an idea of how the rejoicing of heaven poured over into the natural world. At the time Jesus was born shepherds keeping watch in a field were visited by an angel. The angel was accompanied by bright light that suddenly immersed the shepherds during the night, and the angel spoke to them the joyous message that a savior was to be born in Bethlehem that very night. In Luke:

And suddenly there was with the angel
a multitude of the heavenly host praising
God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
So it was, when the angels had gone away
from them into heaven. (Luke 2:13-15)
