The grace of God

Is there anything more greater in this world other than the grace of god?
“I found that whatever truth I had read [in the Platonists] was [in the writings of Paul] combined with the exaltation of thy grace.”
           - Saint Augustine 

The teachings of Paul of Tarsus was ground breaking at that time and they are still earth shaking transformational ideas for this modern age. The truth that our salvation is not in our hands and that we are saved not by doing good deeds but by a predestined election by God.

Most people do not realize that these teachings are very similar to the karma yoga of Bhagvad Gita where in it states that we should not expect the fruits of our actions because work has been given free to us and it is God himself who is stimulating our thoughts and doing all the works in the world. So where then is boasting? When we are not even the doer of our actions then why should we expect to receive the fruits of those actions? The glory of our works and achievements should go to God because it is he who is in everyone and doing all the activities of the cosmos.

We are no where in this world picture. Ego is God who controls the intellect and our thoughts. The intellect controls the mind and the mind controls the brain and the brain controls the body. That's how the flow of action is. Where am I in this world picture? Who am I? The I is the soul who passively experiences these playful activities of the gods. The only way to escape from this mortal world is through the grace of God. He has to give permission and let you go. You cannot win that grace of god by doing charity and other good deeds. No amount of good deeds will ensure a place in heaven and immortality for you. This is the bitter truth.

I for one have experienced the grace of god working through out my life and I consider myself very lucky to have received this knowledge and all the pleasures of the world from him. I must say right from my childhood up until now I have led a life without any hardship. My grand father was a police man and he used to bring me whatever I asked for whether its toys, cars, pigeons or German Shepherds etc and by the time when my cousins were born he was happily retired a privilege which they didn't enjoy. I never knew about Valentinus but god introduced his works to me. We never thought we would be building such a big house but it turned out to be such. Its as though I was predestined to know it and have it. The end goal of all these teachings is to take us away from the life of birth and death towards the immortality of the soul which is what we call as redemption.

Cogito ergo sum

Can an evil demon deceive everything including my own existence? The very fact that I am aware of my own doubting or thinking proves that I cannot deny my existence as long as I am aware that I am thinking.

This doesn’t prove that soul exists. Well, I could be just a voice simulator in my brain nonetheless I exist irrespective of whether I am virtual or real. To know whether we are souls or just a voice simulated being in a brain we need to face death.

Soul has three states. In the waking state it thinks it is the physical body and receives information from the sense organs of the physical body. This is what is dubbed as consciousness in the ordinary sense of the world. 

In the dream state it thinks it is the subtle body and receives information from the sense organs of the subtle body and in the sleep state it thinks it has no body and hence you get a feeling that you ceased to exist for that duration of time.

The soul is not the director of the activities that it is aware of instead it is just an passive actor collecting and remembering all the information that is being fed into it.

Brain, Mind and the Intellect all play an vital role in processing the information from the visible and the intelligible world providing a consolidated experience to the soul.

All these activities cannot occur on its own it requires an orchestrator and that organiser is none other than God.

Brain is just a sense organ in the physical body which collects information from the surroundings and feeds that information to the mind. All the decoding of information from chemical signals to audio, visual, speech, taste, color, depth, proximity is processed in the mind outside of the brain and an output feedback signal is sent from the mind to the brain which triggers the motor muscles.

How does anaesthetic chemicals causes unconsciousness? The mind withdraws itself from the brain and the soul goes into the deep sleep state when certain drugs are fed into the brain. The same thing happens with coma patients.

You do see brain activity but it has no meaning because there is no one there to receive that information and interpret it.

When Venus crosses your ascendant

I wanted to take a quick moment to share how impressed we are with Harshit’s work on the Datasources team. The team is in a bit of a crunch due to a high volume of critical tickets that have hit us over the past two weeks or so. And Harshit’s been just fantastic in the way he is handling everything assigned to him. He is also assisting with KT to some of the newer team members we are bringing on board to assist with the volume of work.  
We much appreciate having him as our team member.
           - Senior Manager, Product development 

You are more than welcome! I have been very pleased with you & think it should be known. But, I have to be careful so that no one steals you away. ;)
          - Scrum Master

I’m building the Canadian version of the DS. 😊 and your work in converting the code is great.

I love Venus in Scorpio women

I recently discovered that all the women who I admire have their Venus in Scorpio. I was a big fan of Meg Ryan and Avril Lavigne right from my teenage and they both have their Venus in Scorpio. Being a Venus in Scorpio myself it seems I am naturally attracted to these people.

As some astrologers say, its all there in their eyes as though there is a dark mystery behind them and I love all of them having grown up watching their movies.

Jennifer Connelly, Blood Diamond and The Day The Earth Stood Still

Meg Ryan, You've got mail and Sleepless in Seattle

Anne Hathaway, Dark Knight Rises

Carla Bruni Sarkhozy

Avril Lavigne

Jodie Foster, Silence of the Lambs

Katie Holmes

Sigourney Weaver, Alien Resurrection

Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil

Naomi Watts, King Kong

Winona Ryder, Alien resurrection

Even Matt Damon and Leonardo Di Caprio have their Venus in Scorpio and mind you I love the movie Departed as they both are casted in it.

Evil is an emergent property of the cosmos

God did not intend to create evil. It was not in his mind to make us suffer in this world. God held our perfection with in himself when he created the cosmos and wanted to give back the perfection to us when we returned to him out of love. This ignorance of the Father (imperfection) gave rise to evil and suffering in this world which was an emergent property of system due to the design choice made by God. The origin of evil was in a way inevitable.

People started hurting others and participated in sinful acts because they had no knowledge of from whither they have come and whither they are going. This is the state of affairs in the world as we know it from the Gospel of Truth. Now what do we do? How can we proclaim our perfection back? How can we get back our lost identity? Well, the fact of the matter is God did not gave us free will, you might do lots of charity, help the poor and the diseased, feed hungry people and do all kinds of good things and yet there is no guarantee that God will save you and send you to heaven. You might still end up in hell even after leading a righteous pure life. Why? It is because God saves you not based on works of the Law but based on unmerited grace. He saves us because he loves us, period. Nothing less nothing more.

Rather than saying God's grace is arbitrary you need to the see the world from the viewpoint of God. The truth is we are all souls with each one having the full potential within us to become the Holy Father, we are the Holy spirit, that's our true identity. Once you know this you cannot hate God for what he has in store for us. He(God) can do anything with yourself and with this world because none of the things in this world are yours, it is his body and his world and he has full authority over it, one of the reason why the Gospel of John says do not love this world nor the things in this world, the lust of the eyes and the prideful way of life is not from the Father but is from the world, the world is a passing by but one who does the will of the father will live forever or will obtain immortality.

You cannot bribe God's grace by trying to please him by doing good deeds, you cannot earn God's grace no matter what you do, there is no way through which you can earn God's grace, the grace from God should come to you all by itself. The only way now for us is to love the Father unconditionally (because that's what he wants from us) and not turn away from him or blame him when he gives us hardships instead see those difficult times as a testing period and hope that one day he will release our soul from this world and gives back our true identity which we all deserve.
