    Default It was We who Sold our Own Liberty

    It was We who Sold our Own Liberty

    XueFeng

    July 23, 2017
    (Translated by Treasure and Edited by Kaer)


    Liberty is supreme and priceless, is the feature of life in heaven and shows the level of a LIFE. The more liberty, the more heavenly; the less the liberty, the more hellish.





    Liberty, love! For my love I will sacrifice life,

    There two I need, For liberty I will sacrifice my love.

    ---Petofi Sandor


    "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

    --- Patrick Henry.

    Liberty is the greatest wealth in life. Losing it is losing life; gaining it is gaining life.

    So, what is liberty?


    Liberty is the infinite power of a life to use its eyes, ears, nose, body, mind, and tongue while acting with desire but never overstepping it.





    Seeing what you want is the liberty of your eyes
    Hearing what you want is the liberty of your ears
    Going where you want and using your hands and feet as you want is the liberty of your body
    Saying and thinking what you want is the liberty of your mind, namely the liberty of your spirit and soul




    The liberty of your eyes, ears, body, and mind form of the liberty of your life.



    Those who have eyes but are forbidden to see, have ears but are forbidden to hear, have a mouth but are forbidden to speak, have feet but are forbidden to walk, have hands but are forbidden to act, and who want to lead their own lives but are banned from doing so have lives with no liberty.

    We will not discuss the liberty of Gods, Buddha, Celestials, Saints, devils, monsters, or even plants and animals, we will only talk about that of humans.

    People have very little liberty. In other words, they rarely keep it in full.

    Why do we not have liberty?

    Because we sell it.
    How do we sell it?
    It is mainly sold through three channels or aspects:








    1. Culture - People sell themselves to traditional cultures. They accept traditional cultural values, such as the belief that, “people should marry when they grow up”, but when they step into marriage, they sell their own liberty. Traditional culture says “Never travel far from the company of parents”, then the body has no liberty. Traditional culture says to, ”Love your nation and love your people”. Come on! They have sold their liberty to their own nation and culture. And so on.








    2. Morality - They sell their liberty to their own values and beliefs. Party loyalists and religionists are stark examples. So-called “proponents of liberty” are actually kidnapped by their morality and sell their liberty to morality. If they sell their liberty to the belief in evolution, then they will not accept the value of creationism. As a result, “the survival of the fittest”, “the law of the jungle”, and “winners are kings while losers are gangsters” becomes their creed of life. It becomes hard to avoid fighting to the death, and their liberty is removed anywhere. They need to remember that anyone without liberty is unable to offer it to others just as the poor can not bring wealth to others and and ugly people can not bring beauty to others.








    3. Mechanism - As long as there are constitutions, laws, regulations, doctrines, disciplines, contracts, and the like which restrict and bind them, people will sell their liberty to that which they set for themselves. Their state is a mechanism. They believe in their state, and they sell their liberty to their country. Marriage families are mechanisms, and as long as they consciously enter into marriage families, it is no doubt that people will sell their own liberty to the marriage family. A contracts is a mechanism. When a contract is signed, liberty is sold to the contract.








    When we do not feel free today, we have to rethink that we have no liberty because we sold it. For that, it is as normal that we have no liberty as if we sell our house and then have nowhere to sleep. That is all our fault and we have no excuse to complain to others!

    In addition to the three main channels to sell liberty listed above, we also have the following list of small channels through which it is sold:


    These include jealousy, blaming, comparing, fighting, killing, worry, fear, desire, money, power, fame, lust, and so on. As long as we are infected with any of these negative emotions or inner anxieties, or indulge in any desires, our liberty will be restricted or even lost.






    For example, if we fear something that restricts our liberty, then we sell our liberty to fear. When a country perpetrates a national terror policy and makes people live in fear from morning till night, then the people’s liberty will be deprived completely and they will have to live a life more like that of a dog than a human. Tracing back to the source, the country might not be bad, but the people have sold their liberty to fear. As more and more citizens of a country become willing to sell their liberty to fear, this terror policy becomes the perfect way for the state to or control its people. The bondage of the individual is self-inflicted and the slavery of all is caused by the collective. If one wants to enjoy liberty from such an environment, there is only one thing to do: Escape!


    Where to go?

    To a free place.

    If there is no free place on the earth,

    Escape to heaven!

    Sorry, not taking the blame for what has been taken by the so-called global elite, who steal everything they can get their grubby hands on in a fixed game they've rigged. Not self-loathing myself for someone else's crimes!

    Default Persistent Motivation Comes from the Longing and Pursuit of a Wonderful Life

    Xuefeng

    (Translated by Tongxin and Edited by Kaer)


    What promotes everyone to live day by day?


    It is the Tathaga (nature) which has been the designed program ever since LIFE was originally created during the beginning of creation. For each LIFE, whether they like it or not, must run around in circles to survive for several decades after being born, and this is not controllable by anyone. As people, we must run around solving the problems of eating, clothing, shelter, transportation, birth, aging, sickness, and death, although these are reluctant choices which lead to tragic lives.


    These are reluctant and tragic lives within the realms of necessity. If people cannot escape from the bondages of the realms of necessity, then no matter how they may live, trouble, pain, worry, anxiety, and fear will follow them forever. Life will rise and fall, set in sorrow and joy, and bloom and fade like flowers, until one reincarnation of LIFE is finished and a new one begins anew.


    Coming back to the original point, after several years, many decades, or even centuries, these are the reincarnations of the realm of necessity. If we do not escape from the bondage of the realm of necessity and enter into the realm of freedom, then whatever we do and however glorious a state we can reach, everything is as futile and transitory as passing clouds. Nothing is worthy of being pursued or owned.


    Although the road leading forward is tortuous, it is only by targeting an eternal direction and goal and by walking firmly towards it, that we can ever hope to walk out of the realm of necessity, out of the rises and falls, and out of the reincarnations of life, that we might taste and enjoy the scenery and joys along the road.


    Everything we pursue and own in the human world will eventually melt into emptiness or burst like bubbles. They are absolutely illusions and dreams. If everything in the human world eventually disappears, then what is worthy of being pursued? What is worthy of being owned? What is worthy of being strived for by consuming the energy of LIFE?


    Either swim with the tide and do not care about truth or falsehood, sincerity or deception, beauty or ugliness, kindness or cruelty, good or evil, or what is yours or mine, because everything will disappear into silence when one eventually disappears from the world; or move forward, firmly toward the realm of freedom which exceeds this human world, and exceeds space and time.


    Where is the realm of freedom? Where is the way leading to the realm of freedom?


    The human world is not the realm of freedom because our bodies push us to run for survival. The realm of freedom is heaven, and the ultimate realm of freedom is the Celestial Islands Continent of the Elysium World.


    The road leading to the realm of freedom is the longing and pursuit of a wonderful life, and this is the source of persistent motivation.


    What are wonderful lives?  


    They are states of no death, no pain and sorrow, no worry and fear, no trouble and misfortune, and no fighting and deprivation, but there is always joy, happiness, sunny life like beautiful springs, eternally green mountains and clear rivers, and one has the freedom to do whatever they want to do forever. What is fortunate is that we have found the way that directs us forward to the realm of freedom in which a broad, beautiful world is already waiting for us. The question is how can we reach it? Can we keep going? Did we delay too much on the road, feel powerless like sighing before the sea, and get pulled back into the realm of necessity because of sluggishness?


    So many people have fallen down because they lost, do you still have the motivation to move ahead?


    As long as you strive for and pursue the good life continuously, you will have persistent motivation, and can overcome all difficulties and finally reach the destination. But if your pursuit and longing are reduced or stopped, then you will stay in the same place and miss your opportunity to enjoy a truly beautiful life.

    Default The wisdom of bees

    Xuefeng


    What kind of house structure is most reasonable if we humans are to construct several hundred houses, every one of which is to accommodate only one person temporarily incapable of activity, all of which shall take the least material and labor, and all of which have the strongest structure, the most beautiful appearance, and the greatest cubage?




    Should the houses be made of interconnected cylinders? No, the different sizes of man’s legs and waists may prove waste of some space, and the waste of space mean the waste of labor and materials. So it is not the most economical way of house building. In addition, cylinders have too little contact area between them and it is not enough to serve as a wall for two rooms.




    Should the houses be made of interconnected cubes? No, the four corners will be a waste of space. It does not look very pretty either.




    Should the houses be made of adjoining octahedrons? No, the more sides a structure has, the more difficult it is to build and more time-consuming.




    Should the houses be made of many irregular shapes? No, the houses thus constructed will not appear good, besides a lot of more time and material may be wasted.




    Then what structure is most reasonable?







    The honeycomb of bees is the most ideal structure.




    The honeycomb is made up of hexagon columns. Since the lower part and middle part of the larva are different in sizes, the bottom of the honeycomb has been made into three congruent rhombuses. In 1712, the astronomer G.F.Maraldi of Paris Observatory concluded throughmeasurement that the obtuse angle of the rhombus is 109.28 degrees and the acute angle is 70.32 degrees. For these figures, a French scientist specially consulted a Swiss mathematician, “what is the most economical way in terms of materials to construct a hexagon column with a bottom consisting of three congruent rhombuses?” The mathematician’s result is that the column can use the least possible material only if the obtuse angle of the rhombuses is 109.28 degrees and the acute angle is 70.32 degrees.




    Wow! The bees are too wonderful! Long before the birth of man, they have solved the problem that man has not discovered and realized until now.







    Each bee knows that the column can be constructed most effectively and economically only if the obtuse and acute angles of the rhombuses are respectively 109.28 degrees and 70.32 degrees. For us man, only the greatest mathematicians can work out the result. How can ordinary people compare with those tiny bees?




    Are bees smarter, more intelligent, and wiser than man?




    If this is the case, why don’t the bees know for whom they have toiled by gathering honey from hundreds of flowers?


    Man is not only reluctant to give to others what belongs to him, but is always calculating to encroach upon what belongs to others, even wants occupy all the properties of the world for his own good. So are the tiny bees carrying forward the unselfish communism style?




    If bees have such advanced wisdom and so open a mind, they must have, according to the theory of evolution, evolved into creatures far superior to man long ago since they have come to the earth long before the birth of man. Why are they overtaken by men in evolution?




    The founder of the theory of evolution Darwin exclaimed, “natural selection is powerless to explain such perfect structure of the honeycomb, because as we see it, either in terms of labor or the use of beeswax, honeycomb conforms to the theory of maximum economy and is absolutely perfect.”


    Then, even the originator of the theory of evolution has realized that the wisdom of bees does not result from evolution. We are also clear that the wisdom of bees cannot compare with that of man. And bees would certainly not carry forward the unselfish communism style for man that has been severely exploiting them. Then there is only one origin of their wisdom—instinct.




    What is instinct?




    Instinct is the capability possessed after birth.




    Instinct is the capability possessed after birth proved to be contradictory with the theory ofevolution. So is evolution
    theory a fallacy?




    Doesn't the inborn capability prove that everything has been what it is now from the very beginning?




    Doesn’t the inborn capability prove that things are not developed through evolution but are created?




    Doesn’t the inborn capability prove the ability of the Greatest Creator that has created everything?




    Aren’t the degrees of the acute and obtuse angles of the rhombuses at the bottom of the honeycomb designed by the Greatest Creator and added to the instinct of the bees?




    Do you still want to deny the existence of the Greatest Creator?

    Default Light the Sacred Lamp in Your Heart

    Xuefeng

    (Translated by Conglong and Edited by Kaer)
    http://newoasisforlife.org/


    We can face problems or stumble into traps when we walk in the dark. More seriously, we could take a wrong turn and be lead away from our destination. It is only when we walk in the sunlight or shine a lamp to brighten our way that we are able to reach our destination, one step at a time.




    As cultivators, we must first learn where we want to go. Then, we need to follow this path and not be distracted or mislead by anything along the way. We need to discard anything that hinders us from moving forward because if we are attached to something we own or are unwilling to surrender things that are unnecessary, our trip would be delayed or end prematurely. We would never reach our destination, and the result of such poor cultivation would be that all our energy and effort are wasted.




    The two objectives for the cultivation of a Chanyuan Celestial are very clear: the first is to lead a happy, joyful, free, and blessed life, and the second is to extend their LIFE to heaven: Thousand Year World, Ten Thousand Year World, and Elysium World.





    The only way to reach these goals is to initiate a new era for humankind where, “the talented will be put to good use and the whole world will be one family”, “no one would pocket anything found on the ground and doors are not bolted at night”, and everything is in harmony and the weather is very pleasant. This is also an era when all citizens of the earth will enjoy happiness and freedom. What we do to realize this dream is embodied in the building of the Lifechanyuan cause, especially the Second Home. In short, helping to build Lifechanyuan is the best way to self-cultivate.


    “The difficult problems of the world must be dealt with while they are yet easy; the great problems of the world must be dealt with while they are yet small”. If we do not focus our efforts on small things, we will not be able to realize our beautiful dreams, and if we do not combine theory with practice or if we say one thing but do another, we will only be cheating ourselves and others. That is the trick of the wicked.




    We need to light the sacred lamp in our hearts, otherwise, where and how should we go?




    How do we light the lamp?




    Trust in the Greatest Creator.

    Trust Jesus Christ, Buddha Sakyamuni, Lao Tzu and Prophet Muhammad.

    Trust reality, science, logic, and your spiritual perception.

    Trust the road map given by the spiritual guide, Xuefeng.




    If we do not have the above trusts, we are not lighting the sacred lamp in our hearts.


    Whoever finds it too difficult to embrace these trusts is suggested not to apply for a Chanyuan Celestial. Whoever is one is invited to surrender their title and follow what they feel is a better, more suitable path. Do not waste your precious time and the energy of the Second Home.




    Be very clear about what you want. “The Sage embraces the One and becomes the model of the world”. We will not desire everything and be greedy; we will not want both a raincoat and an umbrella. We will not live a new life while still wanting to keep a traditional lifestyle and we will not have everything while still possessing personal property or any person. We shall not walk on the Way of the Greatest Creator while still straddling onto other paths.




    “Clever people may be victims of their own cleverness”. One who does not listen to the teachings of Jesus Christ will not reach the Kingdom of the Greatest Creator and those who do not listen to the teachings of Buddha Sakyamuni will never reach Elysium World. Anyone who does not listen to the teachings of Lao Tzu will not evolve into a Celestial and those who do not walk according to the road map of the spiritual guide will not get to Thousand Year Word, Ten Thousand Year World, or the Celestial Islands Continent - part of the Elysium World.




    Listen or do not listen? Follow or do not follow? Everyone is responsible for their own future.

    Default Re: The wisdom of bees

    Xuefeng,

    Here is a quote from the greatest inventor/scientist Nikola Tesla

    But instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile.

    I've been saying many times that the knowledge we need was with us when we were born. We left it searching for it. So now at my age I am trying to unlearn what Ive learn. Maybe this is what the Christ meant when he said "be born again" I am trying to be like a child again in the sense of being carefree worry free NO FEAR just do it. Of course almost all people out there will tell me I'm insane.

    yes there is this creator in star trek its called "the force" Tesla call it the "infinitesimal energy". but definitely its not some form of God somewhere in the universe away from us. Its a creator that transcends the universe. Its in you in me in the air under the sea just anything you can thing of. Its the force the energy that has an origin and infinitely present in all creation. we are part of it which makes us in a much much much lesser degree a creator. the knowledge of the bees is the knowledge of the creator. Man lost the ability to access the connection and thereby the knowledge. We have a lot to keep ourselves busy with. Like for example now. Heck I'm suppose to be out in the sun but instead I'm here typing... time to go.


    PS what is Xuefeng?

    Cool LIFE and death—a phenomenon puzzling mortals and laities

    LIFE and death—a phenomenon puzzling mortals and laities

    Xuefeng

    This earth sees the birth and death of a huge amount of animals and plants every day and every moment. Life and death is a universal phenomenon in nature. Everyone has embarked upon the journey to death since the moment of his birth.




    The happiness of LIFE and the sadness of death are the basic emotions of mortals and laities.


    A family will be bursting with happiness at the birth of a baby and a family suffering loss of a relative will be overwhelmed with extreme sadness and grief. With the exception of the Jesus and Buddha Sakyamuni, who are so transcendental and free from vulgarity and have such great wisdom, few can escape from this enigmatic circle and understand the real signification of life and death.


    The tragedy of life lies in the lack of enlightenment and in the inability to escape from the transmigration of life and death.

    For thousands of years, people have been seeking the way to immortality. Modern medicine and science are also probing into the secrets of longevity. I wonder why people are so happy about life but so grieved at death.


    Seeking life entails endless troubles and seeking death brings infinite benefits.


    What would the world look like if none of the plants and animals on the earth dies, and if our great great great grandparents survive till today and each family has a thriving population?


    Some will think, “It would be best if all of them die and all of us survive.”


    Well, suppose they all die and we all survive, see if we are better off. It would be OK as long aswe can distinguish who “they” are and who “we” are. We must know at the same time that every one wishes the same as you and me. Then in the end who are to die and who are to survive?


    Is it so good to live and so bad to be dead?


    Take a look at human history, pay a visit to your neighbors, and ponder over the question of what good there is to live and what harm there is to die.


    Let’s forget about the time immemorial and talk about the time from Sakyamuni till present. How many people have lived a good life and how many have died a bad death.


    Let’s take the examples in Chinese society. Antenatal training has been provided even before a baby is born. Abandoning the music of nature, the Greatest Creator, God, and Buddha, people spare no efforts to inoculate the fetus with the imperfect music of mankind. Immediately after birth, adults try every means to provide the little babies with toys and cartoons instead of having them got in touch with flowers, birds, insects, and fish in nature. Before the age of schooling, the children have begun their preschool education, learning piano, painting, kong fu, and dancing. They have no opportunity to bring their own instinct into play nor have fun in nature. When the children have just begun to know about the world around them, they will be burdened with heavy and formless pressures. In addition to the heavy schoolbags and the endless homework, adults spare no efforts to add extra education for them. Moreover, endlessly lecturing began to put on to children:


    “You must be someone, you have to get full marks in exams, otherwise you’ll be lagging behind others!”


    “Child, I am doing all this only for your good! You must work hard and strive to become an excellent student. You must enter key middle school and then qualify yourself for study at prestigious university. Otherwise, you will have no foothold in this society!”


    “Why are you so fond of playing, my kid? Look at Xiao Ming, she is so diligent and so promising. You must learn from her.”

    These and many more lecturing have left children at a loss.


    The hundred-meter dash begins with middle school. Students are preoccupied with study and examinations day and night, teachers and parents are carefully supervising and urging, and the society is imprudently promoting the atmosphere of elites. As a result the splendor of human nature is inundated in the endless darkness.


    Will their college life be relaxing?


    The answer is no. The comparison between classmates for superiority in terms of food, clothes, residence, and transportation is only a small matter if compared with the authoritative indoctrination in ideological field and the blind and unlimited pursuit of knowledge. College should be a place to cultivate noble moral sentiments, but the majority of colleges are fostering the lively and natural men but the robots that have lost onself.


    “We must bring honor to our ancestors, we must win glory for the motherland, and we must win credits for our nation!” The colleges have been fostering the narrow minded notions.


    What’s worse, some colleges and organizations are teaching students how to make their first fortune, how to rise in the world, and how to attract handsome men and beautiful women to themselves.


    This is a worrisome era!


    The real distress begins with the graduation from the universities. There are a bewildering number of roads ahead. Which one shall I take? The unbridgeable gap between dreams and reality, the intangible conflicts between ethics and interest, the marriage, the houses, the cars, and the expected splendid success—all these have put university students at loose ends, which has fragmented the entirety of their spiritual nature to an unbearable scene..


    If unverisity graduates are like this, then those with no university education must have experienced even greater conflicts and misery in mind.


    Marriage and having of a family does not secure one a harbor to shelter the storm. Heart-rending matters occur frequently, and it is only normal human feelings to support aged people and bring up children. What people cannot bear is the friction and “battles” between husband and wife. Birth, death, illness, and old age, departure, resentment, failure to accomplish one’s desire, and transience—all the beauties of life have been ruined completely.


    We see people on the streets, each of them looking vigorous and elegant. But once we get to know their inner world, we will find every one of them emaciated and fatigued.


    Many people in my neighborhood are rich businessmen. They all have villas, servants, and limousines. Then they should be happy and satisfied, right?


    The answer is no. When I chatted with them one day, one of them said, “Actually if I have a million Yuan (RMB), I will be doing well in China.”


    Another person, as if he has heard the talking of an alien, taunted, “A million? What can you do with it? It is barely enough to buy and decorate an apartment.”


    Another said to me, “I heard you are writing a book, right? You are a little old-fashioned. Don’t you know that in today's time you are everything if you have money and you are nothing if you don’t? Make haste to earn money!”


    Yet another person (a woman) preached, “Nowadays money is God. How many copper coins is conscience worth?”

    I was overwhelmed, I shuddered. No wonder they grudge every second and every penny and regard money above everything else.


    I see the world is ruled by goblins, devils, and monsters? Am I wrong? Or am I the real devil? Or I don’t fit in with this world at all? I feel that life is suffering and human life is rightly a sea of suffering.


    “The sea of suffering is borderless, please return and repent for salvation!”


    Return? What is “return”?


    Returning is death!


    Why die? For living is worse than death.


    How to die? Nirvana.


    How can nirvana be carried out?


    Self-improve and self-refine.


    How does one self-improve and self-refine?


    Raise consciousness and increase wisdom.


    What is wisdom?


    Wisdom is the supreme and complete understanding of life and death.


    How can one acquire supreme and complete enlightenment?


    By understanding what is life and what is death.


    Then what is life and what is death?


    That one is inexplicably brought into the world as a result of Karma is called birth and life; that one rushes about blindly and departs the world unjustifiably is called death.


    Birth is accidental, is death inevitable?


    Both birth and death are inevitable.


    Since both death and birth are inevitable and individuals have no choice and cannot resist,then why do we have to understand life and death?


    By understanding death and life, one can cast off life and death.


    How can one get rid of life and death?


    One can do so by reaching the realm of no birth no death.


    What is the realm of no birth no death?


    Elysium World is the realms of no birth no death.


    What is “Elysium World”?


    “Elysium World" is one of the 36-dimension spaces, namely the world described by Jesus and Sakyamuni.


    Is there really such a world? Or is it only a tale?


    Yes, there is, I am telling the truth.


    Then please demonstrate it to me.


    I can not, because it is another time-space, which is invisible to naked eyes. The mirages that occur occasionally are part of “Elysium World”.


    Then there is no way to see it?


    Yes, there is.


    What way?


    By the spiritual sense.


    What is spiritual sense?


    A man has six sense organs of eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind, which are respectively responsible for the six senses: vision, hearing, olfaction, taste, touch, and spiritual sense.Spiritual sense is the perception in everybody’s consciousness and a spiritual apperception.


    Why cannot my spiritual sense have such a capability?


    Because your spiritual sense is too dull.


    Why is my spiritual sense dull?


    Because it has been polluted.


    What has polluted my spiritual sense?


    Your spiritual sense has been polluted by images in nature and the values of human society and your prejudices.




    Then how can I restore my spiritual sense?


    By awakening to truth.


    What is awakening to truth?


    Awakening to truth means getting to the bottom of a phenomenon.


    What is phenomenon?


    Phenomenon can be anything that we see through vision, anything that we hear through hearing, anything that we smell through olfaction, anything that we can know through our taste, and anything that we acquire through our sense of touch.


    According to you, there are too many phenomena.


    Yes, Buddhism talks about 84,000 Dharma Paryayas, but actually Dharma Paryayas are unlimited.


    What is Dharma Paryaya?


    Dharma Paryaya is a means to grasp a phenomenon and find out the ultimate essence of thephenomenona‘s essence

    What is essence?


    Essence is something concealed, which causes the occurrence of certain phenomenon.


    Then what is the ultimate essence of essence?


    The substrate causing the essence is the ultimate essence.


    That is to say the Greatest Creator is the ultimate essence?


    Yes.


    How do we get to know the Greatest Creator?


    This book of mine can enlighten you on the understanding of the Greatest Creator.


    Oh, I see.


    What do you see?


    The birth of man is like falling into the sea of suffering and so it is something lamentable. The death of man, however, is like being severed from the sea of suffering and so it is something delightful.


    Yes, but not entirely so.


    Why?


    Because death is not the final resting place.


    Why is death not the final resting place? Didn’t you say that man will enter the Elysium World after death?


    Death is only a surface phenomenon. Behind death is the transmigration of life. Some people will return to the human world after death, some will become animals after death, some will enter the thousand-year world, and some will go to the ten-thousand-year world. Only a very limited number of people will go to the Elysium World after death. So how can we feel happy if some people are even worse and are more miserable than in the human world after death?


    Your preaching about preexistence, next world, and transmigration of life is too inscrutable and incredible. How can we believe in something that cannot be proved by science?


    Science is materialism. Science can not prove what is beyond the material world. But the universe is composed of material and nonmaterial. Science can only prove half of the universe not the other half. Take my consciousness for example. How big is it? What color is it? How heavy is it? What shape does it have? Science cannot provide answers to these and many other questions. Therefore you cannot completely negate what cannot be proved by science.


    Then can you prove that man has preexistence and next world?


    Yes. One is the records about preexistence in history, which can be found in the literatures of many nationalities; another is the record of facts by International Near-death Research Institute; and the third is the descriptions by the sages and saints like Jesus and Sakyamuni.


    These are only legends, hearsays, or religious doctrines, and thus are not convincing. Can you come up with something new?


    Yes, homosexuality is an example. The rule for the biological world is that like sexes repel each other and unlike sexes attract each other. So why is there homosexuality? And why the homesexual love can be so dear to risk one’s life?

    This involves the gender of his (her) preexistence. If a woman has apreexistence as a man, the inertia of biology will continue to play its role and will incline her to instinctively like a womaninstead of a man, although she has become a woman in this life. When she meets a woman with the same preexistence, they will chime in easily and fall in love with each other. In the same way, if a man has his preexistence as a woman, then he will still like man in this life.


    Instead of morbidity, homosexuality is a spontaneous instinct, which may fade away with the passage of time.


    In addition, there is a saying that “Rivers and mountains may be changed but it's hard to alter a man's nature.”. What is true nature? And why it is unchangeable?


    Nature is the innate characteristic. When does nature come into being? From primary school? From the time of while in mother’s arms? Since the time of an embryo in the mother’s body?Since the time of existence in the womb? Or since the combination of the sperm and ovum?


    If nature starts from the time mentioned above, there is no question of “hard to alter a man's nature”.


    Then we can conclude that nature has started centuries before which is something deep-rooted, unlikely to change in a relatively short period of time.


    We can observe people around us or study on some special people. Then compare with the habits of some animals, we can easily figure out that certain people possess original nature of certain animals. Thus we can conclude that such people may have been certain animals in their preexistence.


    For another example, for thousands of years philosophers and thinkers have raised the question “Who am I?”, but failed to answer.


    Who am I?

    Am I my family? No, because I am still me even without my family.

    Am I my clothes? No, because I am still me after I have undressed myself.

    Am I my teeth? No, because I am still me after I have lost all my teeth.

    Am I my hair? No, because I am still me even if I have become bald.

    Am I my eyes? No, because I am still me even if I have become blind.

    Am I my legs? No, because I am still me even if I am amputated.

    Am I my heart? No, because I am still me after organ transplantation.

    Am I my blood? No, because I am still me even after I have blood transfusion.

    Neither this nor that, then who on earth am I?

    Well, I am Tathagata.


    What is Tathagata?


    Tathagata is the essential origin, the consciousness (soul) that already exists beyond the flesh and is enduring hardships in the world by living in this "home” of my flesh. When this “home” of my flesh ceases to exist, I am still there. All that I have to do is only to find another “home”. This is just like crossing a river. I borrowed a boat, but I would give up the boat and go onshore afterI have got crossed.


    Buddhism preaches that “An enlightened heart gives rise to insight into nature, and an insight into nature secures Buddhahood”. If we have understood this principle, we are already Tathagata Buddha. We will go directly to “Elysium World” after death and don’t have to come to the human world to continue the hard time.


    Well, also much for the simple introduction of life and death. My purpose is not to consider something as it stands, but rather to make it clear that the irreversible question of life and death is determined by the Greatest Creator and that life and death has its purpose and meaning.Without the Greatest Creator there would be no life, let alone the question of life and death.

    Default Re: The wisdom of bees

    Quote Posted by Bubu (here)
    Xuefeng,

    Here is a quote from the greatest inventor/scientist Nikola Tesla

    But instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile.

    I've been saying many times that the knowledge we need was with us when we were born. We left it searching for it. So now at my age I am trying to unlearn what Ive learn. Maybe this is what the Christ meant when he said "be born again" I am trying to be like a child again in the sense of being carefree worry free NO FEAR just do it. Of course almost all people out there will tell me I'm insane.

    yes there is this creator in star trek its called "the force" Tesla call it the "infinitesimal energy". but definitely its not some form of God somewhere in the universe away from us. Its a creator that transcends the universe. Its in you in me in the air under the sea just anything you can thing of. Its the force the energy that has an origin and infinitely present in all creation. we are part of it which makes us in a much much much lesser degree a creator. the knowledge of the bees is the knowledge of the creator. Man lost the ability to access the connection and thereby the knowledge. We have a lot to keep ourselves busy with. Like for example now. Heck I'm suppose to be out in the sun but instead I'm here typing... time to go.


    PS what is Xuefeng?
    First of all, thanks for sharing what you believe. We are trying to be like a child again as Jesus told us, as Lao Tzu told us. But we need first to experience much as to know what life is.
    Xuefeng is the author. He created lifechanyuan. (www.lifechanyuan.org http://newoasisforlife.org/ )
    He wrote many Spiritual articles. I am here to share these articles. I am also reading A Course in Miracles, they are interlinked. Sorry for my broken English.

    Red face Mirage—the emergence of Elysium World

    Xuefeng

    Scientists, especially meteorologists and opticists, may sniff at my conception of mirage as the emergence of Elysium World, criticizing me for not having the least knowledge of the refraction and total reflection of light.


    Indeed I know very little about optics and meteorology, and I dare not to show off what I know in this aspect so that I won’t leave an impression of displaying my scarce skill before an expert.


    Since I have my own definite understanding of the origin of the universe, the origin of life, the origin of man, and the 36-dimension space, I also have my own explanation for mirage, for which I hope to obtain the further analysis of experts in different perspectives.


    What is mirage?


    Mirage is the revelation of celestial being and Buddha to mankind. It is the appearance of the scenes of the Elysium World in 36-dimension space in human world. That is, mirage is the real situation that exists in Elysium World.


    Some describe mirage as entirely imaginary, changeable and unpredictable, real yet illusory, and fairyland-like. The description is really to the point, and “fairyland-like” in particular has delineated the real situation of mirage. Strictly speaking, mirage is fairyland, and the “Elysium World of the West” preached by Buddhism is such a fairyland.


    When fortunate people see endless ranges of mountains, borderless ocean, towering pavilions, pagodas, and towers, the appearing and disappearing cities and forts, serene landscapes from the seaside, the desert, the Gobi desert, or the lake, they will certainly have an inexpressible feeing for the beautiful heavenly visions. What are they? Where do they come from? Are they the paradise or the human world?


    According to scientists, mirage is an optical phenomenon of the atmosphere. It is the result of the refraction and total reflection of light in the atmospheres of different densities. More accurately, after being illuminated by light the natural scenery on earth will be reflected into theatmosphere. As a result of the dramatic temperature changes in the desert or the ocean, the local air will form different densities. When the light reflected by an object enters the high-density air from the low-density air, the scenery on the earth will be projected in the air, just like the refraction of a chopstick in a bowl of water. Thus mirage is formed.


    This explanation seems reasonable. But let me propose the following details and see what we can find.


    All explanations point out that mirage results from the refraction or total reflection of the distant views. I want to ask where the distance is. How far away should the distance be?


    There are records for many visions appearing in the sky. Have scientists found the similar sceneries in the distance that correspond to the mirage?


    After the refraction, is the image positive image or an inverted image? If the reflection is an inverted image, why the image in the sky is positive image? If the reflection is an erect image after refraction, why is some mirage upside down?


    Does the reflected light enter from the thinner medium into the dense medium or from the dense medium into the thinner medium? That is to say, is the light refracted from the sky downward or from the earth upward? If the objects on earth refract the light upward, the direction of the refraction can only be from the lower position to the higher position. Why does the refraction also occur in the upper-to-lower direction? Of course it can be said that after N times of refraction by the atmosphere the light can also be reflected from the upper to the lower position. This is only theoretically possible but practically unfeasible. If feasible, we may see mirages every day.


    Some experts say that when exposed to the burning sun the sand in the desert will rise quickly in temperature because of its low specific heat. The lower air close to the sand will have a very high temperature, while the temperature of the upper air still remains very low, and thus the abnormal distribution of air temperature is formed. Since objects expand with heat and contract with cold, the lower hot air close to the sand has a very low density, while the upper cold air has a great density. As a result the refractive index of the air is small in the lower air and large in the upper air. If the light reflected by the higher object in the distance is continuously being refracted when entering the thinner lower air from the denser upper air, the angle of incidence will gradually increase until the appearance of total reflection when it reaches the critical angle.


    This theoretical analysis seems tenable. My question is, if this theory tallies with the actual situation, then mirages will be frequently seen in the air above the desert, but why is it that in the air above the desert people cannot see a mirage for many decades? Do these deserts not fall within the scope of your theories?


    Of course experts may argue that the desert should have special geographical and climatic environments for the happening of mirages. Without such conditions no mirage will occur even in the air above the desert.


    Then my question is, what special conditions are necessary for the occurrence of mirages over the sky in the desert? And which desert on earth does not possess such special conditions?


    Experts’ explanation for mirages happening over the sea goes like this: In summer, on the calm water surface the upper layer of air is very hot and has a small density because of its exposure to the sunlight, while the air close to the water has a lower temperature and greater density as a result of the influence of the water current. When the lower air and upper air has great differences in temperature and when the density is small in the upper air and great in the lower air, the mirage will happen when light reflected by the islands, towns, and ships in the surrounding horizons goes through upper-lower refraction or total reflection.


    Yes, if in summer it is easy to form a thinner upper air and a dense lower air in the air over the sea, then how about autumn and winter? Why did mirage still happen over Penglai Peninsula on December 16, 2002, when the area of Shangdong Province was already in the season of winter?


    Suppose the experts are right in their theory, then in summer all the upper air over the sea will be thinner and all the lower air over the sea will be denser, but why have mirages not appeared in the sky over the so many other stretches of seas?




    In recent years mirages frequently appear in the sky over Shandong’s Penglai Peninsular.According to experts this is the result of “improvement and cleaning” of environment in recent years. Now Penglai has fresh air and clean environment, so mirages frequently occur there.


    This must be politicians’ statement, not the conclusion of experts. If experts have come to such a conclusion, then please answer my question: Why did not mirages always occur in Penglai Peninsula before the age of industrial revolution on earth, during which period the air was even fresher and better in quality than it is today? Why did mirages occur only once every few years? What is the air of America’s Hawaii like if compared with that of Penglai? Then why don’t mirages always occur there?


    Experts may reinforce their theory by saying, “The special natural environment of Penglai is the major reason attributable to the occurrence of mirages. There is no such environment in other places, so mirages are unlikely to appear.”




    Suppose this explanation is correct, then please answer my question: if Penglai Peninsula has very special natural conditions, the visions of all the mirages should be basically the same images, but why is the image of each mirage different from the others? Is it possible that thenatural environment of Penglai is changing every year?


    8.As we have known about the refraction of light, the light will keep its direction and speed of diffusion when traversing the medium with an even density. When the light slants through two media with different densities, it will go through changes of speed and deflections of directions at the contact area or interface of the two media.


    This theory is correct, but is not acceptable when it is used to explain the occurrence of mirages. In terms of aerosphere, there is difference of densities not only between troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, ionosphere, and exosphere, but also in the same aerosphere. In this case, refraction of light will certainly occur when the sun shines its light upon the earth.That is, just like the moon we see in the water, we can also see many illusory suns in the aerosphere. But why can’t we see them? The densities of the air are different not only during the day but also at night. When the bright moon is high in the sky we can see the reflected moon in the water, but why can’t we see the illusory reflections of the moon refracted in the different densities of the air?


    My explanation for mirage is that mirage is not the refracted image of scenery on the ground but a contortion of time and space of the Elysium World, which has been purposefully arranged by the Greatest Creator to demonstrate to mankind: “Your sky is not an illusion, but another time and space, and another world. You mankind has a great future.”


    When introducing the 36-dimension Elysium World, I have made it clear that the thousand-year world and ten-thousand-year world are at very distant places, but the Elysium World is close at hand. The entire earth and universe is the Elysium World. Namely, the earth, the solar system, the Milky Way Galaxy, the the Rotary-River Galaxy and Law-Rotary Galaxy all belong to the Elysium World. All that we see are just illusory images—mirages, short-lived prosperity, flowers, grass, and trees, insects, birds and beasts, rivers, lakes, and seas, celestial bodies and the universe, and even human life. What place is not illusory? The answer: The Elysium World.“Emptiness is not emptiness and color is not color”. The smaller the energy, the more definite the form; the greater the energy, the less definite the form. Hence, “Great form has no contour”.


    Why can’t we see the Elysium World? It is because our eyes do not have the needed structure.Can we see ultraviolet and infrared? Can we see electromagnetic waves and biological waves?Can we see Gama rays and beta rays? We are in a wonderful world (the Elysium World), and we have seen less than 3% of the surrounding world. Why can’t we see everything in the world? It is because our “merits and virtues” have not yet reached that standard. Just like somebody’s question, “Why can’t we live in the White House, Kremlin, and Zhongnanhai?”Why? Try to find the answer by yourself.




    I have some information here, which may help us to know about time and space.


    “On January 28, 1915, a Turkish army was marching toward Position No. 60 in Gallipoli. When they had ascended the hill, several masses of clouds descended vertically to hang over the whole hill. Metal-like rays of light seemed to have shot out from among the clouds. Then was the time of magic. The gallant troops in high spirit strode into the clouds and disappeared one by one. A soldier named Richard who fell behind the ranks was terrified to see such a frightening scene. He yelled at them, trying desperately to stop the march of his comrades.However, it seemed that they turned a deaf ear to him and entered the clouds as if were spellbound. After a moment, the masses of clouds ascended slowly and vertically and drifted away into the distance. The hill still remained, but the whole corps lost their traces.


    They have vanished into thin air. Where have they gone?


    They have entered the mirage.


    In 1994, an Italian airliner suddenly vanished from the radar screen of the control room when it flied over African coast. A short time later, it reappeared on the screen. When the plane landed on the airport, the man on duty asked the pilot what had happened during the flight. Why it failed to be tracked? The airscrew felt at a loss, because their flight had been smooth and no accident or trouble had occurred. Later someone accidentally discovered that his watch was 20 minutes slower. The investigation revealed that the watches of all the crew and 315 passengers were all 20 minutes slower.




    What has happened? Where have they been in the 20 minutes? Why were they not aware of what had happened? Why can’t the screen display what has happened?


    As I have discussed in “Time and Space of the Universe”, time can be divided into transverse time and longitudinal time. Longitudinal time is the time of the material world and transverse time is the time of nonmaterial world. We humans live in the longitudinal time, which resembles the X axis of the complex function. The transverse time is like the Z axis of the complex function. When a person or object vanishes from the longitudinal time, it has entered the transverse time and space. Whenever he (it) comes back, he will still return to the original point of time. But for us, maybe a year, a decade or several hundred years have passed.

    The Italian airliner has vanished for 20 minutes because they have entered the transverse time and space. For the plane and people aboard, it may be a wink of the eye, so they could not realize that they have once disappeared, but for the person in the control room of the airport, it has been twenty minutes.


    What is the transverse time and space? Mirage is the transverse time and space.


    During my childhood, my grandma told me a story: A woodman got lost one day when he was collecting firewood in the mountain. Having sauntered in the mountain for a long time, he suddenly discovered two old men completely immersed in a chess game on a beautiful slope.He did not intend to disturb them, but squatted beside them and watched them play. All was so auspicious and natural. The only thing puzzling him is that the leaves close by were endlessly changing their colors—yellow for one moment but green for the next. After a long spell, when he returned his gazes from the distance to what is near him, the two old men had vanished from his sight. He trembled with fear, and suddenly realized that this was a familiar place where he had been collecting firewood many times. Once aware of his place, he walked home along the familiar path.


    When he approached the village, he found that great changes had taken place in his village. Doubting whether this was his own village, he headed for his home along the path in his memory. But on his way every one he met just gazed at him like a stranger. He could not recognize any of them either. Suspecting that he might have come to the wrong village, he inquired about his original village from people he met. All echoed that this was the village that he asked about. He asked whether they knew such and such a person. They answered who was whose grandpa and who was whose grandma and that all of them had passed away.When he asked about himself, he was told that he was whose grandpa and had never come back from his trip to the mountain to gather firewood when he was young.


    Now let’s analyze why the woodman got lost when he was gathering firewood in the mountain he was familiar with. The reason was that he had suddenly entered the mirage, which had a different environment from his former one. Thus he would certainly get lost. Why did he suddenly realize where he was after a cold shiver? This was because the mirage had disappeared and he was again standing on the familiar place. Some he suddenly awakened to his world. Now that he had the luck to enter the mirage (Elysium World), why did he not disappear together with the mirage? It was because his spiritual quality had not measured up to the standard for living entirely in the Elysium World. Then why was he permitted to witness the scenes in the Elysium World? It was because he had suck a luck. The two old men playing chess must have been his relative or friends, who had come to reveal to him that although he was not presently entitled to live in the Elysium World, the Elysium World actually existed and that he could realize the existence and laid foundation for his future entrance into the ElysiumWorld.


    This is the story about time and space. The woodman has entered another domain of time and space. When he returned from the transverse time, he was still his old self, but the longitudinal time of the human world had passed hundreds of years.


    Thus, mirage is only a revelation of the Elysium World. People who have seen the mirage has had the luck to witness the scenes of the Elysium World although they have not entered its domain.


    The mirage will appear not only in the sky but also on the ground. The two old men’s chess playing was a mirage unfolding on the ground. Even if there were many people in the mountain at that time, no one except the woodman could see the mirage, just like the phantasms appearing in the head of a person who has taken heroin. He has truly seen the scenes although others claim to have seen nothing.


    People who saw the mirage are lucky. If we can understand from the mirage that there are different visions in different time and spaces, we can open up our thinking and realize that our human world is only a material world in the time and space of the universe and that there are many more beautiful worlds apart from this material world. Then why don’t we set off for the more beautiful world.


    The Greatest Creator has not treated us only as a batch of animals. He has revealed to people with greater spiritual sense another serene and glorious road of life. God Jesus and BuddhaSakyamuni are not fooling us. All tricksters have only personal interest in mind, but are Jesus and Sakyamuni pursuing personal gains? They have abandoned all their worldly belongings, so why should they deceive us? You can cheat the wealthy people for their money and fool those in power to get certain advantage. But what good is there to cheat us-- who have nothing at all?

    Default Re: LIFE and death—a phenomenon puzzling mortals and laities

    ivysunday, I am saddened that you have had such an unhappy life. Since you are unable or unwilling to improve your life or learn to enjoy the life that you have, I wish for you an painless death. As Woody Alan has said, "I'm not afraid of death. I just don't want to be there when it happens."

    Exclamation What do the mysterious pyramids show?

    What do the mysterious pyramids show?

    There have existed nearly 1,000 pyramids on the earth inhabited by man. There are pyramids not only in the desert of Egypt, but also in the area between 30 degrees north latitude and 30 degrees south latitude in the Pacific Ocean, in the area between 30 degrees north latitude and 30 degrees south latitude in the Atlantic Ocean, at 30 degrees south latitude of the Indian Ocean, in the south of Japan’s Honshu, along the Mediterranean and Portugal’s coastal area, and in southeast Africa, west coast of Australia, and north coastal area of New Zealand in south Hemisphere.


    Pyramids were not built by man and nor built by the ancestors of man. It is the Greatest Creator who inspired God to build the pyramids and it is God who then dispatched angels (celestial being and Buddha) to build the pyramids. If it is difficult to understand this, it can also be said that they were built by “aliens”.


    There is only one purpose:—receiving and accumulating the energy from the universe andsupplying the energy for the making of life and man on earth. It can be said that pyramids are the laboratories and cultivation sites for the making of life and man.


    The pyramids of Egypt were designed and built for the creation of man. Other pyramids were built for the creation of other life-forms. Since different life-forms need different energies, the foundations of pyramids are not all squares. Some are triangles, pentagons, and hexagons.


    The pyramids of Egypt have only a history of 12,000 years, while other pyramids are two billion years old.


    Please refer to “Origin of Life” and “Origin of Man” if you want to understand how pyramids were built and why they were built along the 30 degrees south latitude and 30 degrees north latitude.


    When I was an English teacher at a middle school I once taught my students an article about pyramids. I was not enlightened then, but I was fascinated by the mystery of the pyramids. Icould not figure out how the stones, each weighing several tons, were transported and why they fitted so well. I held a suspicion about the notion that it took hundreds of thousands ofEgyptians dozens of years to complete the “Pyramid of Khufu”. Later, enlightenment dawned on me after a series of events happened to me, after I encountered some dream scenes, and after I conducted some meditations. The origin of universe, the origin of the Greatest Creator, the origin of life, the origin of man, 36-dimension space—all these and more gushed out like floods. I was not feeling myself any more. A powerful force is propelling me to act according to“his” will. I am now feeling like a robot and a servant. I have to keep writing. I won’t feel relaxed until I have poured out what is in my mind, even if in a manner of outline. Otherwise Iwill be mad.


    I have collected an article about pyramids—“The Abode under Clear Clouds”, which is -attachedhere unabridged for your reflection and analysis.


    There are about 80 pyramids dotting the west bank of the lower reaches of Nile. They are the mausoleums of the pharaohs (kings) of ancient Egypt. In Egyptian language, “pyramid” means“high”. Seen from any direction, the pyramid is an isosceles triangle tapering from the bottom to the top, resembling a Chinese character for “gold”. Hence people vividly call it “Jin Zi Tower”.


    Ⅰ An incredibly complicated project


    The greatest pyramid is the mausoleum of the pharaoh Khufu in the fourth dynasty. Built around 2700 B.C., the pyramid is 146.5 meters high, which is equivalent to a 40-story skyscraper. The foundation of the pyramid is a square, and the length of each side is 230.6 meters. The pyramid covers an area of about 52,900 square meters.


    The great pyramid is made up of about 2.3 million stone pieces of different sizes. The lightest weighs 1.5 tons, the average weight of the stone pieces is 2.5 tons, and the total weight of the pyramid is 6.848 million tons. 978,286 seven-ton trucks will be needed to carry all the stones.If connected one by one, the total length of these trucks will be 6,200 kilometers, which is longer than the length from Hainan Island in the south of China to Mohe River in the north of China and longer than the length from Pamirs in the west of China to Shanghai in the east of China. The trucks can line the whole length of the Yangtze River from its upper reaches of Tuotuo River to Wusongkou in its lower reaches.


    Pyramid of Khafre is the second largest pyramid, three meters lower than the Great Pyramid.Beside Khafre there stands a gigantic stone carving—Sphinx. It is said that Khafre, the third Pharaoh of Egypt’s fourth dynasty, was inspecting in 2610 B.C. his mausoleum to be completed when he discovered a discarded megalith in the quarry. He ordered the stonemason to sculpt this statue according to his physiognomy.


    The statue is 22 meters tall and 75 meters long. It wears a “Onesimus crown. On its forehead there is a relief of a sacred snake. Under its chin is trailing a beard more than five meters long.The statue is stately and mysterious.


    When Napoleon occupied Egypt in 1798, he ordered the Sphinx to be bombarded with gunneries. However, it remained unmoved, but for a few broken beards, which are now preserved in British Museum. According to Napoleon’s rough estimate, if the stone pieces of the three neighboring pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure were used to build a stone wall three meters high and one meter thick, this can encircle the entire France.


    Where did the massive number of stone pieces come from? The investigations show that ordinary stone pieces might have been quarried in the local place but the 115,000 pieces of top quality white limestone used on the outer layer might have been obtained from the quarry on the east bank of Nile. The granite in the tomb chamber might have been quarried from Aswan 500 miles away.


    The quarrying, transporting, loading and offloading of stone pieces needed not only a great number of stonemasons, builders, transportation workers, and sailors, but also a considerable number of engineers, construction crew and management team. An army with adequate power of suppression was also necessary. Moreover, these people needed food, clothing, shelter, and consumption, so there should be a massive team of service people. Of course, this group didnot include old people, women, and children who had weaker power of labor; neither did itinclude idle monks and nobles.


    According to an estimate, a national power of 50 million people would be needed to support such a construction project, but it is generally believed that the total population of the world would not exceed 20 million at around 3000 B.C.


    What’s more, there are more than 80 pyramids discovered. Even if a pyramid could be completed in thirty years, as Herodotus has said in “History”, a total of 2400 years would be needed. Can Egypt sustain such massive consumption over such a long period?

    Ⅱ The mystery of transportation


    The most pressing and realistic problem was transportation. Even if Egypt had adequate manpower, it could not transport to the worksite the megaliths weighing 2.5 tons to 160 tons.Were they carried by carts and driven by horses? No, at that time there were no carts and horses in Egypt. Horses and carts were introduced from abroad in the 16th century B.C., namely 1000 years after the building of Pyramid of Khufu.


    Some believed that the stone pieces were transported via rolling transportation with crow plates and logs. But this method requires a large quantity of timber. However, at that time the trees in Egypt were mainly palms, which could not satisfy the need of transportation in terms of quantity, growth speed, and rigidity. And it was almost impossible to import timbers.


    Some people believe that the stones were transported by water. In 1980, Havas, the superintendent-in-chief of Giza Historic Sites in Egypt, conducted sampling of core. When the drilling reached more than 100 feet, he discovered a rock at least 50 meters deep, which was possibly the port excavated in the fourth dynasty of Egypt. Later some people also discovered the water course connecting the port. However, without pulleys, winches, and adequately advanced hoisting devices, it would be more difficult to transport such cumbersome megaliths by downhilling, embarking, disembarking, transporting than move them over land. In addition there was at least more than 50 feet of fall between the water surface and the cliff bank. And the stone materials from the east bank of the Nile were indispensable to the building of pyramids in the west bank of the Nile.


    Could they have transported materials by air apart from land and water transportation? This is really a mystery.


    A French industrial chemist has conducted research of the pyramids from the chemical and microscopic perspectives. According to him, these stone pieces are not an integrated mass, but are bonded together with lime, rock, and shells. Since the bond has very powerful adhesiveness, people cannot distinguish the stone pieces are natural or artificial. This will surely solve the difficult problem of transportation. But the 2.5-centimeter human hair discovered between the stone pieces is still not adequate as evidence for the use of bond. And this kind of bond has not been recorded in ancient books, and the chemist has not obtained any result from the analysis that employed modern means.


    Ⅲ The mystery of construction


    Legend has it that Imhotep, the designer and architect of the pyramid, is the first talent in history that transcended his time. His talent has surpassed the time by such an extent as to cause our natural amazement and suspicion.


    It is extremely difficult to turn a gigantic protruding rock into a 52,900-square-meter foundation of the pyramid. They have completed the survey and construction of the foundation without the help of gradienters, power equipment, and modern meterages. The four hemlines of the foundation have a discrepancy of less than 20 centimeters, and the error rate is less than one thousandth. There is only a difference of 1.27 centimeters between its heights in southeast corner and northwest corner, and the error rate is less than one ten thousandth. The force position error between its east-west axis and north-south axis is no more than five arc seconds.They did not have units of measurement except for arm’s length as a measurement unit (300 arms’ length equals approximately 155 meters). It is really puzzling that they could construct with such accuracy.


    In order to ensure the ever lasting of the pyramid, the designers did not use a single pole or a nail to avoid hidden trouble because wood is liable to decay and iron is susceptible to rusting.There are not any bonding materials between stone pieces but they fit perfectly. Even the thinnest blade cannot stick in.


    How the chunks of stone were hoisted and placed one upon another is an even more mysterious subject that provokes endless guesses.


    Some people said that a wood boat-shaped tool was used to lever the megaliths up and laid them one after another. But where did the fulcrum and ropes that could lift several, dozens of, or even more than a hundred tons of stone come from?




    Some people claimed that sand-filling method was employed. Sand was piled along the pyramid’s foundation. The sand pile would rise with the height of the foundation and acted as scaffolds. After the pyramid was accomplished, the sand would be cleared away.


    Now let’s work on a mathematical problem:


    The 146-meter pyramid is a tirus?? with a square bottom and a pointed top. The foundation of the pyramid is a square with a side length of 230 meters. Question: What is its volume? If the periphery of the foundation is surrounded with sand to form a slope for the transport of stone and the angle of the slope is 30 or 25 degrees, then how long will be the hemline of the sand pile? Suppose the height of sand pile is also 146 meters, how many cubic meters of sand will be needed? Where does all this massive amount of sand come from? Besides, the filling and removing of the sand would double the work load.


    Some people said that salt-filling method was employed with the same procedure as sad-filling method. After the pyramid was completed water could be used to dissolve the salt and there was no need to move it away. But it would be much more difficult to obtain so much salt. In addition, a storm would melt away a whole salt slope.


    It is also believed that the mud bricks of the Nile were used to build the twisting slopes, which rose layer by layer. The result was similar to that of the sand slope, the only difference being that mud bricks were less available than sand. There is an entrance 13 meters from the ground in the north of the pyramid. Ever since the ninth century, tomb robbers, explorers, and investigators have frequented the pyramids in close successions. However, its inner structure remains a mystery. There are labyrinth-like passageways and tomb chambers inside the pyramid. The walls are smooth, decorated with reliefs. The passageways have neatly constructed steps extending like venation toward the tomb chambers deep underground. The chamber has ventholes leading outside the pyramid. It is said that the “soul” of the dead can freely enter and go out of the pyramid through these holes. Strangely, the two ventholes aim at Draco (eternity) and Orion (resurrection) respectively. They are probably the places where soul is spiritualized. Three such chambers have been discovered, while archaeologists believe that there are at least four more chambers to be discovered. Could people four thousand years ago accomplish such ingenious and exquisite designs and conceptions?


    Most surprisingly, there have been no traces of torches used for lighting in any mausoleum.Archaeologists have used modern instruments to analyze the dusts that have been accumulated for 4,600 years. No ashes have been discovered, neither are there any traces suggesting that soot have been scraped off. We should know that these instruments can analyze the one millionth of the chemical ingredients inside each particle of dust. They could not have carved reliefs, cleaned chambers, or moved the corpse of the pharaoh in total darkness. What kind of lighting have they used? Until now we have found no clues in this aspect.


    Ⅳ The mystery of figures


    Archaeologists, architects, geographers, and physicists have been puzzled by the accurate equations revealed in several figures.


    Equation 1: the 15th power of (pyramid) deadweight×l0 =the weight of the earth

    Equation 2: (pyramid) height×10 billion=the distance from the earth to the sun (1.5 billion kilometers)

    Equation 3: (pyramid) the square of the height=the area of the triangle surface

    Equation 4: (pyramid) the perimeter of the bottom: height=circumference ratio: radius

    Equation 5: (pyramid) the perimeter of the bottom×2=longitude in time at the equator.

    Equation 6: (pyramid) the perimeter of the bottom ÷(height ×2)=circumference ratio (∏=.3.l4l59)


    Who would believe that these figures are just cases of coincidences?


    Furthermore, the longitude running through the pyramid is the meridian of the earth, a line that divides the land and oceans into equal halves. The foundations of the pyramids are located rightly in the gravitation center of each continent.




    In addition, the dimension of the great pyramid and the magnitude of the north hemisphereare extremely similar in proportions. Thus it has been inferred that Egyptians have worked out the oblateness of the earth 4,000 years ago.

    The positions of axes of the earth’s two poles are changing every day, but after a cycle of 25,827 years they return to their original positions. The sum of the diagonals of the pyramid is rightly 25,826.6.


    We know that the Pythagorean Law was not discovered until 1000 years after the completion of the pyramid and that not until 3000 years later did Zu Chongzhi work out the circumference ratio to such accuracy. The accurate calculation of the ratio came out in the west until the 16thcentury. Columbus discovered “America” 4000 years after the completion of the pyramid. And from then people began to have an initial understanding of the distribution of oceans and land in the world. Today nearly 5,000 years after the completion of the pyramid we are finally able to work out the weight of the earth, and the distance between the sun and the earth… but how could people 4,500 years ago conduct such accurate calculations?


    Ⅴ The mystery of its long-lasting existence


    It is said that of the seven great wonders of the ancient world, some have collapsed and some have disappeared with the passage of time, and only the pyramids have stood the test of time and still stand towering. What is the secret for its permanent existence?


    Let’s first do an experiment: pour slowly a certain amount of rice, sand, and gravel respectively, soon three cones will be formed. Although they are different in quality, they are quite similar in shape. If you conduct a measurement, you will find that their cone angles are all 52 degrees. This naturally formed angle is the most stable angle and is called “the limiting angle and stable angle of natural falling”. Strangely, the angles of the pyramid are exactly 51.50.9 degrees. This shows that it has been built according to “limiting angle and stable angle”.


    The wind in the desert is vehement. Because of the pyramid’s unique shape, the swift and fierce wind cannot but climb slowly along the bevel or edges and corners and the wind-receiving surface of the pyramid becomes smaller from bottom to top. The wind-receiving surface approaches zero at the top of the pyramid. This unique shape has minimized the destructive power of wind by avoiding the direct contact with the fierce force of nature.


    It is also known that the deflecting influence of the magnetic line may cause the collapse of buildings or even high mountains. The foundation of this pyramid is rightly in the center of the line of magnetic force. Thus the foundation will move with the magnetic line and move with themovement of the earth. As a result it bears only very weak swing and the earthquake has very limited effect on it.


    The mystery of the pyramid’s stability lies in the angle of 52 degrees, the shape of tirus, and the position of in-phase movement with the line of magnetic force. But who can tell us how people 4500 years ago knew that the angle of 52 degrees was the stable angle? How did they know the use of tirus could solve the battering of desert storm? How did they know that they could place the massive foundation in the center of magnetic line?


    Ⅵ Microwave resonating cavity and cosmic wave


    Man is mortal, but why did they dedicate so much labor and wealth to building a storeroom for a carcass? Are there any other reasons except for the kings’ luxury and extravagance?


    Yes, there are. The scientists’ researches indicate that the shape of the pyramid has enabled it to store a strange “energy”, which can cause the carcass to rapidly dehydrate and speed up“mummification”. The dead can thus wait for the resurrection sometime in the future.


    If you put a rusty metal coin inside the pyramid, very soon it will glitter. If you place a cup of milk inside the pyramid, it will remain fresh after 24 hours. If you have a headache or a toothache, stay in the pyramid, an hour later you will feel detumescence and relief of pain. If you suffer neurosis or exhausted, stay in the pyramid for a few minutes or a couple of hours and you will feel refreshed and energized.


    French scientist Bowers discovered that the carcasses of piglets and puppies in wastebins at one third height of the pyramid did not decompose but have automatically dehydrated and changed into mummies. He made a small pyramid according to the dimensions and proportion of the pyramid in his workshop. The same antiseptic and preserving effect has been achieved.These home-use small pyramids used to sell well in America. They were used for antisepsis, preservation, and experiments. Czechic radio technician Karl Delbar invented “Pyramid Blade Sharpener” according to Bowers’discovery and was awarded in 1959 “patent right” by Czech .


    The Egyptian scientist Healy also did an experiment. After having put the bean seeds in the pyramid for some time, he found that the sprouts were five times longer and the chlorophyllwas five times more.


    In 1963, the biologists in Oklahoma University confirmed: The Egyptian princess has still living skin cells in her lifelike body after having been dead for thousands of years.


    Even more astounding is the announcement by an Egyptian archaeologist, Massu: after 4 months of excavation, he discovered a gray cat when he opened the stone gate of an ancient tomb 27 feet beneath the Valley of King. Covered with dust, the cat arched its back, whined, and leapt fiercely to people. Several hours later the cat died in the lab. It had loyally kept watch over its master for 4000 years.


    Some scientists believe that the pyramid is a very good microwave resonating cavity, where the heating effect of microwave energy can kill the bacteria and dehydrate the carcass. Inside this cavity microwave can fully exert its function. But how could the pharaoh use microwave four thousand years ago?


    Some scientists think any building can absorb different cosmic waves according to their outer shapes. The granite inside the pyramid has the function of a battery, which absorbs and stores various cosmic waves. The limestone outside the pyramid can prevent the diffusion of cosmic waves. The generation of the supernatural energy inside the pyramid is the result of the action of cosmic waves. But how could pharaoh 4000 years ago understand cosmic waves and discover the relations between cosmic waves and stone quality?


    Ⅶ Pharaoh’s curses and nuclear waste


    Then it is wrong to think pyramid only as the source of life and energy. Pyramid is also deterring people’s further exploration with its mysterious and ghastful means.


    In 1922, people excavated the mausoleum of Tutankhamun, a king who died in 18th century B.C. The entrance to the grave bears the awesome inscriptions: “Any tomb robber will be cursed by pharaoh”.


    Scientists naturally disdained “the curse of pharaoh”, however, misfortunes and disasters haveproved the effectiveness of pharaoh’s curses more than once.


    The duke Karl, one of the leaders of the excavation, was the first to fall under the spell of the curse. He was stung by mosquito and died of carbuncle. Later, a visitor, Yeuell died of drowning, and another visitor, the railway magnate also died suddenly of pneumonia. Ajournalist who took pictures of the king’s mummy with X-ray camera died of shock. Mike and Pitcher, the assistants of Doctor Cainta died successively of unknown causes. Pitcher’s father jumped off a building and killed himself. And an automobile for the funeral killed an eight-year old child. 22 excavation-related people died mystically within three years and three months after the excavation.


    There is also a formidable inscription on the Pyramid of Khufu, “The wings of death shall fall on the one Who Disturbs the Peace of the pharaoh.”


    Doctor Jaisalmer Taya of Cairo University believed that an aspergillus inside the mummy can cause the afflicted person to suffer inflammation of the respiratory system, erythema on the skin, and finally death due to dyspnea.


    American “Medical Monthly” once published an investigation report: as many as 40% of the 100 British visitors to the pyramid died of cancer at an early age within the next ten years.Those who were bold enough to climb to the top of the pyramid all died of stupefaction that occurred very soon.


    Recently the chemist professor 达维多凡 of 贝利 University in Miami has detected the decayed radiation in the pyramid, which is obviously the main cause of cancer for the British tourists. But outside the pyramid no one has been affected. It can thus be seen that the structure of the pyramid can prevent the leakage of radiation. Hence he proposed a novel inference:


    The pyramid is the nuclear waste storeroom for prehistoric aliens.


    Well, the above introduction and analysis of the pyramid is very incisive. There is no need for me to make any further explanation. Facts show that pyramids were not built by man, and that they were not the mausoleums of pharaohs, either. There are many reasons for the burial of the pharaohs’ bodies inside the pyramids. One major reason is to prevent the unnecessary troubles caused by the disclosure of the angels’ secrets in the creation of man and succeedingly by man’s or alien’s imitation. Pharaoh is the most dignified of man. With the body of a pharaoh placed inside a pyramid, people would not try various means to enter the pyramid out of respect for the pharaoh. In this way the secrets would not be revealed. Then how can we explain the pharaoh’s curses?

    Very interesting, So Ivysunday, where do you stand in "All of those"?

    My Bad(Evil) people part is
    Do I have to pick one OK:Doh
    unexpected " All those who urge others to enter into marriage, traditional families, or any organizations are bad (evil) people. "

    And here is my good side
    • All those who help others to get through difficulties are good (kind) people.

    Thumbs up The New Life Mode of Human Being Has Come into Being

    The New Life Mode of Human Being Has Come into Being

    Xue Feng

    The ideal life mode once dreamed of by many saints, as what the ancient Greek philosopher Plato wrote in his dialogue The Republic, the One World Confucius was after, and the Communist Society Karl Marx pursued, has been practiced and realized now on earth.
    This new life mode is beyond what Plato, Confucius and Karl Marx and other saints had imagined and described. It was born in a completely new way, and this brand new life mode is just the idyllic the Second Home founded by Lifechanyuan.

    The life mode of the Second Home is totally different from the traditional life mode we are familiar with. Many saints’ dream has completely come true – People live in a worry-free environment where troubles, bitterness, anxiety, desperation and fear are reduced to the minimum, and so are confliction, fight and crimes. An all-around harmonious and sustainable co-existence between man and nature, man and society, man and man is realized. Our three and a half years practice and experiences have fully proved that this new life mode is more than just successful; it will be developing continuously and healthily and have an extremely bright future.

    We have now total 180 residents living in our community which includes 13 kids. The age of the oldest resident is 87 while the youngest is only 3. 180 people live in three branches separately; the biggest branch has 72 residents, and the smallest has 45 people. Most people are from rural areas of China; the education level of majority is middle school. More than half of the residents are female; middle-aged are the majority, and the average age in the community is around 40. The Second Home implements a paradise management mode. The gist of the mode is that no management is the best management. This mode stimulates and motivates the qualities of sincerity, kindness, beauty, love, faithfulness and honesty in human nature, and creating a proper external atmosphere to bring those qualities in full play. There is no management team or leaders, people do their work voluntarily. There isn’t any office. No other meeting or gathering are hold except Monday, Wednesday nights are the time for group study and Friday night is the time for everyone to gather to discuss and solve any issue that may arise in day-to-day lives. Everyone here is first and foremost an ordinary worker; there used to be a branch manager to organize the running of the branch, and now this role has been cancelled, each branch only has a senior , whose role is neither manager or leader, but just a coordinator to arrange and coordinate branch’s daily activities.

    There is no more traditional “family” in the Second Home. Husband-and-wife relationship pattern is broken automatically when the couple start living in the community, and they become independent of each other. The nurture and education of kids, the care of the senior residents will be the pure responsibility of the community, which means that children are no more responsible for the wellbeing of their parents and vice versa.

    All the jobs in the Second Home are professionalized and specialized, big or small, there will one person in charge. The chef only does cooking, the washer only does the laundry, the cleaner only does cleaning, the gardener only does gardening, and chicken raiser only cares chicken, vegetable growers only grow veges, and the one who cultivate economic crop just focus on making sure the crop grow well, builders only do the building and maintenance work. The purchaser, driver, hairdresser, health carer and tailor will be doing other jobs when they finish the main task. Home school teacher is a part-time job, so teachers are involved in manual labor when they are free.

    The main income of the Second Home comes from the donation of Chanyuan celestials. We grow a variety of vegetables ourselves, now the supply can meet the demand of 180 residents. Everyday we can get all together about 300 chicken and duck eggs from three branches, which ensure that everybody could have at least one egg each day. The meals are mainly veges, but we do have meat occasionally. This year we have started the business of growing monk fruits, and now we have total 10,000 monk fruit trees under management, if everything goes well, a yearly 1000,000 RMB net profit can be expected.

    The officers from Public Security Department of Yunnan Province, China (where the community is located) once said after visiting our community, “What you have done is too ideal, and we doubt how you people can keep and develop this life mode”. But I’m very sure that the economic development of the Second Home will not have any problem, and we can definitely become self-sufficient and eventually live in abundance. The reality will prove it after three years.

    In the three years time since the Second Home was founded, our community never had any form of attrition and confliction with our neighbors. Actually, we keep a very friendly relationship with the neighbors. Internally, the community residents never had any quarrel, argument, abuse or fight and everyone get well along with other people. Also, violations of the law and crimes are not seen here at all; gambling, drug taking, prostitution and stealing have totally disappeared.

    The environment of three branches has become very idyllic. All branches are surrounded by green mountains and clean streams; luxuriant plants and trees are everywhere. We have a variety of fruit trees, especially pear, bayberry, peach and chestnut trees, which produce fruits more than our residents could consume. Over 70 different kinds of flowers are blossoming in all seasons. Our home is clean and tidy everywhere, especially the kitchen, dinning room and public toilets, you can hardly see any stain. The criss-crossed brick or cement walkways in the orchards extend in all directions. In our 4th branch, brook’s babbling can be heard everywhere, and the crystal mountain spring flows through the front of everyone’s bedroom and the vegetable garden. Rooms of all branches are managed according to hotel standard; all rooms are equipped with a wooden bed, a desk, a chair and a wardrobe. Each of the bedrooms later built by ourselves has a spacious bathroom and a closet; all rooms have two windows which allow enough sunlight and fresh air to come in. We also built an entertainment hall which can hold 300 people and a five-star level dinning hall which can seat 150 people.

    Except that every a few kids are still live together in one big room, other people all have a separate bedroom.The ideal of ” No one pockets anything found on the road, Doors are not bolted at night” has been completely realized in the Second Home. There never be any stealing case in three years, nobody ever lost anything and people can keep their door open at daytime and leave the door unlocked at night. Breaking into other people’s bedroom without permission at night is rarely heard.

    The meal standard in our community is above worldwide average; the main course is usually rice, steamed bread, steamed stuffed bun, twisted roll, noodle, Chinese dumpling and spring onion pancake. The vegetables include cabbage, Chinese cabbage, carrot, eggplant, cucumber, capsicum, tomato, potato, cauliflower, chives, celery, string beans and melons.The meal is usually served in buffet style; everybody can take what they need, and the food supply is always enough to feed all.

    All residents “own nothing but have everything”. All properties belong to everyone; individual no more own any property or money. No one is treated specially. All people go to the dinning room for food; the storeroom is open for everyone to take what they need for daily life. There is no distribution and supervision. Clothing can be purchased on demand. The basic policy is as long as the goods is not luxurious and wasteful, it will be definitely purchased to meet the need of requester. Currency is no more useful inside the community, and money transaction also disappeared between people.

    The Second Home basicially does not have any celebration activity except the Mid Autumn Festival and Chinese New Year. We don’t celebrate birthday too; gifting between people is not allowed.

    The Second Home try to prevent any religious ceremony and political activity;we don’t have church, temple, Mosque, preaching hall, meditation room and office, we don’t have any form of worshipping, for example, burning incense and bowing to an idol, therefore, we don’t hang up the image of any saint, master and buddha. Everything comes from nature and should be returned to nature, so artificial stuff is unwanted in our home. Moreover, everyone is independent of others, and no one should impose his will upon other people.

    The cultural and recreational activities in our community is full of variety, in addition to the monthly big party, we play games and have entertainment anywhere when we feel like to.Game ideas are so many and varied that we always have new and exciting one to play. Singing, dancing and poetry recitation are the main theme of entertainment. All residents can participate in these activities so that their talents and skills can be displayed and developed. Our home is short of musical talents now, but we prepare to buy some instruments so that we can enjoy the beautiful music of flute, piano,Chinese pipa and trumpet all round our home in future. We don’t have a reading room and only have small volume of books right now, so we plan to set up a library in each branch, and most books will be related to philosophy and natural science.

    The Second Home has a home school for 13 kids’ study purpose, and their level is now at 4th, 5th and 6th grade of primary school.We have classroom, study desk, blackboard and a big play ground. The educational materials are the same as what people use in public schools which meet the requirement of the Chinese Department of Education. The teachers are chosen from residents who are either used to be a professional teacher or have completed tertiary education. In addition to the basic subjects, we also added the subjects of “how to behave as a competent and useful man” and “the relationship between human being and the Greatest Creator(God)”. Kids are also required to do some manual labor according to each one’s ability, for example, cleaning bedroom and yard, pulling weeds. English language is also a major subject in primary school education.

    “Each does his best according to his ability and asks for what he need” is a key policy in our home. Anyone, even if he is 800 years old, as long as he is still fit, should assume a job according to his ability. Therefore, there is no such saying as “retired” in our home. Nobody is an idle and parasite, everyone has something to do. In fact, working has become the most basic and enjoyable daily activity for everyone, it almost turned to a form of game. People feel like they are punished if they are not allowed to work.

    In the Second Home, if someone has caused any hurt to others mentally, spiritually or physically, this person will be dismissed immediately from the community.

    The love between man and woman is absolutely free in the Second Home. Nobody should interfere a couple in love, but group sex is prohibited. Also, we implement the value “Gents come second, ladies are always first and should be respected for no reason”. So man can never be active trying to seduce a woman, and any form of sex harassment is strictly prohibited. Breaking into a woman’s room without her permission is not permitted.Moreover, in our home, there is no marriage, one would be relocated to a different branch every three years, therefore, permanent relationship between man and woman is almost impossible. If a man and a woman fall into love and don’t want to be set apart, they can choose to return to the secular world, get marry and form a family like what people do in traditional society.

    Currently, the situation of the Second Home can be described as “Excellent”, and it is developing towards the direction of “more and more perfect, more and more ideal”.

    We have set a successful example for all human beings. If everyone on this earth lives according to this new life mode, undoubtedly, this world will become a heaven, an Eden. The earth will no longer have wars, conflicts, crimes, famine and crisis, but enter into a new peaceful era. Man and man, man and society, man and natural will co-exist very harmoniously.

    Every single person of human beings, no matter which country, ethic group, religious and political party you come from, no matter you are rich or poor, no matter you are big or small, please note that the Second Home will not develop to any kind of political party which might cause trouble and harm to you. I believe that if you are interested in this new life mode, if you come live in our community, you won’t lose anything; on the contrary, you will surely get more than you can imagine!

    I sincerely hope that you will pay close attention to us, and we warmly welcome journalists or visiting groups to come to our home to experience this exciting lifestyle!

    Note: Chanyuan celestials are those people who like the above lifestyle and are willing to give up all their possession in secular world and dedicate their life to initiating a heavenly-like brand new era. They are the ones who are brave enough to pursue the highest state of life, which is a journey on the earth full of fun, happiness, freedom, and joy.

    I guess Graham Hancock is one of the lucky ones since he has no died because of the pyramids, he has shown pictures of his visits.

    RAWHIDE68 ........ I'M WITH YOU ON THE STATEMENT:

    " All those who urge others to enter into marriage, traditional families, or any organizations are bad (evil) people. "

    IS THIS A MISTAKE OR IS THIS A BELIEF . THIS DOESN'T FIT , DOESN'T MAKE SENSE. ANY EXPLANATION?

    WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?

    Hello Ivysunday! Thank you very much on your post on your community and your way of being, so very interesting!

    I know this is a very well meaning distinction that we all used to dwell on, however both 'good' and 'bad' are a used polarity of both edges of the same stick . They are both heavily conditioned and used just the same, the 'good' qualities have no superiority over anything else, creator and creation have contributed to both equal.There are many 'good' qualities that are being used and are made to allure those who hold this point of view. The law of polarity is known to keep the Earth's never ending 3D duality within dogma and creation to entrap the never ending looping cycles of stories and role playing. The works of the creative energy is within vibration and can create within harmony or not, or as a conflicting aspects that keeps the conflict alive and well
