  1. Could there possibly be more than one meaning? And can one give hope to the other?
  2. Tik Tok appears on the cover of the prophetic Economist World In 2021. There may be something happening in the future concerning this app, whether it is spying by its Chinese parent company, Douyin, applied mind control technology, or further denigration of the world’s youth through the seedier aspects of the app. The name Tik Tok may have been taken from a 1983 novel by science fiction writer John Sladek. The plot concerns a robot who inverts the Asimov laws. “So, instead of being an obedient and faithful domestic robot he turns his hand to child murder, gang murder, terrorist murder, broad-daylight murder, oh, and he likes to paint... and rob banks... and defraud, embezzle, extort, exploit and generally screw people over. And then things go from bad to worse, as he gets into politics.” The app’s sinister realities are coming to the surface. Already explored sexualization of youth. But add: Domestic abuse re-enactments https://www.insider.com/why-people-on-tiktok-are-acting-holocaust-911-abuse-victims-2020-8 Actual domestic violence resulting in burns https://nypost.com/2020/11/16/tibetan-farmer-lhamo-was-streaming-on-douyin-when-attacked/ China spying https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2020/06/26/warning-apple-suddenly-catches-tiktok-secretly-spying-on-millions-of-iphone-users/?sh=7e326acf34ef
  3. “Isha Upanishad verses 9-14 is what scholars call a ‘crux,’ or famously difficult passage. “ - Eknath Easwaran, translator. “In dark night live those for whom The world without alone is real; in night Darker still, for whom the world within Alone is real. The first leads to a life Of action, the second to a life of meditation. But those who combine action with meditation Cross the sea of death through action And enter into immortality Through the practice of meditation. So have we heard from the wise. In dark night live those for whom the Lord Is transcendent only; in night darker still, For who, he is immanent only. But for those whom he is transcendent And immanent cross the sea of death With the immanent and enter into Immortality with the transcendent. So have we heard from the wise.” The problem, in this advanced industrial society, is that neither the immanent nor the transcendent are readily apparent. What sort of darkness is this in which we dwell? To avoid syncretism, I won’t offer my explanation of the immanent and transcendent. How do you interpret the crux?
  4. The Upanishads, a part of the Vedas, were written down during the Vedic Period of c. 1500 - c. 500 BCE, but probably are a lot older than that. From the introduction by Eknath Easwaran: “The Upanishads offer a very different version of what religion means. They tell us there is a Reality underlying life that rituals cannot reach, next to which the things we see and touch in everyday life are shadows. They teach that this Reality is the essence of every created thing, and the same Reality in our Real Self, so that each of us is one with the power that created and sustains the universe. And finally, they testify that this oneness can be realized directly, without the mediation of priests or rituals, or any of the structures of organized religion, not after death but in this life, and this is the purpose for which each of us has been born and the goal toward which evolution moves.” God and the Self are far beyond the comprehension of the materialist, consumptive mindset, in which we were born and raised. How does one go about realizing the Self in 2020?
  5. Anyway...it’s about preparing the heart and mind. How to do this? One way is to follow this advice, and maybe copy it and place it somewhere prominent as a reminder. Philippians 4:8 “whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
  6. I never understood the point of meditation, but tried it anyway. Some funky stuff happened when I did it a year or so ago. For one thing I got doodle bopped either by a disembodied being or my own subconscious. Can’t say it was terrible. Once I listened to some guided mediation lady on a YouTube video and a tiny flaming chariot led by lions came out of me and rode around the room. I wasn’t even totally into it. Another time I was transported to some class where others were meditating together and the teacher saw me and spoke to me. Then I went to some Indian guys house where he took a broom and swept me with it. Guess he thought I was filthy. So the moral is if you’re going to meditate have some objective because if you go in aimless just anything will happen.
  7. This world is evil. Once you understand that you will see it everywhere in most things coming out of industrial society. If you were a TV kid like me, raised in front of a TV everyday your mind will be shattered, your thoughts shards. Images of death and sex will always dwell in your subconscious mind. All this is on top of your own human natural tendencies of pride, jealousy, etc. Even as an individual residing in the lower tiers of society it is a tremendous struggle to do right. To think right. Now imagine you come from this same evil world and have all this to deal with personally, and also have power over many people’s lives. Kings have power to kill or let live. They are flanked with treacherous Machiavellian courtiers at all times whispering flattery in their ears. They have their own authority to defend. How much easier do you think it is for them to become fully evil? TPTB are interested in keeping control, maintaining faith in whatever currency they have control over, using the masses as livestock to serve whatever motives they have at the time. The vaccines are as dangerous as statin drugs that are proliferated all over the US and Europe, killing and maiming. Third world human livestock and prisoners serve as test subjects in countless trials. Money is being made, power is being consolidated. The end of this mess is inevitable. The leaders who give their lives to doing evil are going to be destroyed, just as everyone else who does the same.
  8. (I don’t personally believe in praying to the dead either.) Just with the telepathy thing, meaning communication between one person’s mind and another: It could so easily go off the rails when you’re dealing with voices. I have had a hard time with voices at different times in my life. Only once was I able to verify one voice as coming from a living human. Otherwise, for a young person, it was very torturous. The problem was distinguishing delusions from reality, and there were a lot of abusive and intrusive voices. I experienced a loud voice at times when I was in immediate danger. In messing with it later in life, I was able to listen more objectively? And was able to detect glitches in one particular voice, like a broken record briefly skipping. That served as verification of that one particular voice being a delusion. As far as my religious experiences, it is very clear, now that I completely trust in Jesus as my Lord and savior, which voice is from the Holy Spirit. If I’m seeking Him, I am never deceived. Matthew 7:7-10 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent?“
  9. You only need three people to do a telepathy experiment. A sender, receiver, and a neutral who has the correct information for later verification. The sender must be gifted at projecting thoughts, the receiver good at detecting. The neutral should be trustworthy.
  10. I lack manly strength and stamina. Another token of wisdom: only try to reseal a resealable package once. If it doesn’t seal the first time, it clearly doesn’t work.
  11. Yes you are correct. Sorry I was having a moment, being irritated at certain individuals on here who make prayer look like a silly joke so they can undermine it and pitch their own brand of pop spirituality.
  12. The book High Tech Trash claims that, along with the aerospace industry, the computing industry is the most toxic on the planet. High tech toxic waste is strewn all over the globe, dumped in oceans and on poor communities, festering and killing, all out of sight and mind to Western consumers. All we see is slick pieces of plastic in slick packaging, flashing lights, and glamour. But we by no means get off scot-free. It has been said that the worst victims of the North Korean government are not the politically persecuted but the socially adherent majority, who are oblivious to their own erased minds, their deleted humanity. How is your mind doing? Your ability to focus, to feel emotions, to communicate thoughts? Can you feel your heart? Do you find yourself flicking uncontrollably from one insignificant impression to another? Gun enthusiasts in America strut around with false confidence. They believe the war is between us and the government or us and some mob, but the battle is, in fact, for our minds. For our souls. And for a great many, the battle has already been lost. But... Ecclesiastes 9:4 “For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.” And that is why I’m telling you this now. Some of you are seeking obfuscation, playing games. Some of you are seeking truth. If you seek truth from the heart Jesus will seek you. I am here to testify to you that Jesus intervened in my life through dreams. He knew I was looking for truth but, like many people, I turned away from Him by the conditioning of a sick and twisted culture bent on completely obliterating my soul. “Religion is corrupt.” Of course it is asshole everything has been infiltrated because there is a war going on for your soul. Just like so many others I ran my mouth against the Bible, against God. I claimed to be “logical.” “I’m smart, that goes against my intellect...” Why is it that so called intelligent grown adults will turn to some burnout on a YouTube video or a self proclaimed shaman, alien astrologer, or some other garbage for truth? Or cling to the coattails of a scientific theory, pull something out of their own ass, exalt themselves as a god, but turn their nose up at the Bible without even studying it. Oh you’ve read the Bible? But you didn’t study? SDS means slow down stupid. The treasures are within the words. This is no ordinary book. The Bible is where you are going to find truth. Not glamour. It is not fast. It doesn’t flicker with lights and it isn’t shiny. It is not cheap. You won’t look cool. And people will dismiss you as a lame-o. But then again the in crowd is never where I want to be. To find the treasures in the Bible you must study. If you carefully study the words prayerfully you will understand. If your heart is willing the Holy Spirit will speak to you. If you are inclined to see you will be shown. People will come into your life and guide you. You will even be directed to parts of the Bible that apply to you personally. I promise you that through your intellect and your heart many mysteries will be revealed if you approach it without prejudice. It will prepare you for the end so you will stand and ascend.
