Atheism: Isn’t it still a belief system?


If you do NOT believe in the afterlife, what would motivate you to behave well? How can you be rewarded?

We can look at this 2 ways:

#1. – You do not believe in an afterlife, one in Heaven or otherwise – when you die, you die. Simple as that. But we know, because we’ve seen loved ones pass away – that your “legacy” survives you. This can be money, but more importantly is the preservation of your bloodline.

It insures that the correct history of the family’s ancestry is maintained, in genetic accuracy – this is your reward. Your blood lives on, as it takes other forms, joining that of your future generation(s) partners, and their families.

Your lineage is your afterlife, and you may not have known it was your past life as well.

-OR-

#2. – There is no afterlife, no Heaven to be rewarded in, or Hell to receive punishment for your sins. Simplify these conceptual places even more and you could say “heaven” is what is good and joyful in life, and “hell” is what is bad and causes pain and suffering in life. They are not places, they are states of being, in existence.

We are rewarded with the happiness we feel during the good times. However, they cannot exist without an equally opposing relationship to their co-partner. This is peace, balance, serenity, harmony…….enlightenment.

The life existing when we no longer do, is the future. It is what they (the future generations), will know as the present. But it will not be a gift. The rewards afforded to them are being spent rapidly now, in the present.

We cannot fail to fill our end of the bargain and give some back, and stop the destruction of the planet – we cannot reap the rewards for the future, in the present. Because to do so almost guarantees that there will be no future, somewhere along the way humanity suffers to its demise and the destruction of the planet and POOF! In a flash whatever we thought we knew, as we are, gone.

General apathy rules over most all non-believers, but can you truly say that you do NOT care AT ALL about WHATEVER may happen after you cease to exist on Earth?

 

Mayan (Miami 5-0): From High-5 to Fist-pump


Numbers in Mayan script are represented as dots, or filled circles. Each represents a finger on the Gods hand. Once four fingers are represented, the addition of a 5th fuses the 4 “dots” or fingers into a straight line or hand.
1 = 1 dot
20 = 4 stacked horizontal lines, (each line representing the no.#5)
The straight line can also represent a closed eye.
“We blink every 5 seconds; this is the time it takes for the mind to reconfigure the world. – That is why we blink, as to not lose contact with the real world. We must always remember that reality is from the eyes inward and illusion is from the eyes outward….” as told by Don Pascual, a Mayan Elder.
The proficiency in their Astronomical calendar systems are a direct result of the focus on precision and abstraction. Record keeping remains a tedious task for the counter of days, however, this culture’s dedication in this field is unsurpassed.
….Except possibly by the Egyptians and the Great Pyramids.

The Sun will come out tomorrow, right?


What we can do today:

Embrace and support companies and organizations that follow the global initiative towards the preservation of the planet and all held within our atmosphere.

Companies are going “GREEN” more and more everyday and in different ways. Schools, clubs, organizations and small groups are coming together to make a difference, and a difference is being made.

We learned this decades ago: Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle.

We’ve done well, but not well enough, improvement is a necessity! We can no longer rest assured knowing the sun will rise, as always, everyday.

This is the time to take nothing for granted – to acknowledge the Universe, which gives us; land to walk and rest upon, water to swim and drink, air to breathe, the warming rays of the sun, the gentle gusts of wind lifting the birds in flight, the sounds of nature, the smell of fresh, clean air, forests of shelter, the plants, fruits, vegetables and animals we use to sustain and nourish us. These are all gifts to us from the Universe, mostly from our home planet, Earth.

Knowing how to make efficient use of these gifts, with the help of technology, may help to slow the damage we create, perhaps reverse it, or maybe find a new, better way that doesn’t cause damage.

What we take from the Earth, from each other, we must give back in some way. In a positive and healthy way, one that enriches the mind, body and spirit of the entire species.

Aside

Twitter changed my life. Well, sort of….

I realized that literally over a million people have viewed my page for some reason.

They read something; either I wrote or not, saw my face or started to follow me as custom in the digital Mecca.

It is this that connects me to others all across the world, simultaneously with back & forth interaction…

Then I realized what I had forgotten.

That both the sun and the moon have been in my life far longer than Twitter. They both have been seen by billions more people than Twitter. Some even simultaneously.

Across the globe we have lent night-time and borrowed day time from the universe without a touch of a button. No hash tags or trends.

No public verbal bashing in poor or phonetic grammar, an unspoken universal language – of love, peace, harmony, and good will towards others.

It’s simple to think of this during the holidays and we are made to feel guilty or Scrooge as lonely soulless misers if ones giving doesn’t measure up to some arbitrary standard. Created on an impulsive whim for some physiological reason (or plain crazy).

We all go crazy. We have to at some point because you just can’t hold all that inside of you FOREVER!

Let go of whatever burdens you. Life is your perception and how you choose to live and learn.

Making mistakes is vital to human evolution.

We weren’t made to be perfect and the rules constantly change.

No handbook was written. Well, not until now…….

The Tao of Twitter?

Aside

I guess it is all relative, but, if we could cut-back on what we buy and search for alternatives that are respectful of nature, the industry, society and government will have to change their policies.

The solution lies within each of us – we currently value our own self-worth based on material possessions. The wonder of creation is found in the little things.

Finding the answers inside, awakening the knowledge and power that lies dormant, controlling our desires, using the strength of our minds for spiritual growth and projecting ourselves on to the supreme.

Relatively Speaking……

Only PETA, truly understands animals


“Our brothers, the animals, live symbiotically with nature and we do not value them. We reduce their habitats everyday. Plants and trees can expect even less of us.”

How sad, but true is that?

Sept. 23, 2010 we entered the final phase of Kajib Ajaw – the 4th Sun, this time is called “the definition” period, which had been preceded by a period of warning called “the purification”, which began August 2001 and ended last September.

It is important to know that this is NOT the END OF THE WORLD. Apocalypse comes from the Greek origin meaning to lift the veil, or reveal what has been kept hidden. Misconceptions of this pivotal time for humanity can lead further and faster into despair and self-destruction.

This is a time of true spirituality, a renewed respect for ourselves and everything around us. In this period we must learn to use technology to our advantage without allowing it to consume us and take us out of reality.

The realization that we have an abundance of information, but no meaning or purpose will help drive the cosmic-vision of a global community, living in harmony. No longer will man cling to quasi-religions that quantify a dollar amount for salvation.

This light cannot guide us. In this view, we erase the opportunity to provide guidance for a harmonious life in the present as well as for future generations. The traditions these religions hold simply assure believers that they will find happiness after death.

My space?


Space is seen as a physical, territorial manifestation – in the form of a possession. Matter, an object, a material item, this is what we know as space because we were taught in Science class; that matter, has mass, and mass occupies space.

Seems logical, but are we really conceptualizing space as a 3D form? It is theorized and explained like time, space & time, 2 dimensional, because we simplify the complexities to communicate to a wide audience. Time elapses, as we are taught, but in reality both time and space expand – infinitely.

The 2 dimensions, being finite – either; black -or- white, one cannot be the other. They are perfect in contrast and easily identified. Distinct. When saying something is “black and/or white”, is to say “it boils down to 2 essential core differences, all others being equal.” There may be shades of gray, but we aren’t taking that into any consideration.

Like Taoism and other Eastern religions, or belief systems; it is this because it cannot be that, and nothing lies between the two. Unlike the Yin/Yang, representing the duality that exists in mankind, but its difference is that it also symbolizes a small part of the other exists in each half.

We, in harmony, are not 2 distinct halves, matching to form the whole. There is a piece of us/humanity in the core of the Earth, and a piece of the Earth/humanity in each of us. The Yin/Yang symbol itself more specifically, represents the masculine and feminine duality – the delicate balancing act of two polar opposite energies – both representative of the same species, the only difference being gender.

It is the Natural Order or Law. It is the dance we have counted in rhythm, elegantly swirling and twirling throughout the spiral of time, ever-expanding as does our Universe. The interactions, however small and inconsequential they seem, all play a purposed role.

Like the instruments of an orchestra, combined in synchronicity, with the proper notes, played properly, produce a beautifully integrated array of sounds into melodic harmony. Everything is balanced.

This Natural Law governs every aspect of the entire Universe (hopefully, we all know by now, that the Milky Way Galaxy is one of billions). Matter only exists in reality, and everything that exists has energy, meaning all matter existent in reality has a frequency or vibration. Energy can neither be created or destroyed, it is the ultimate recycler!

The Maya believe that another form of “space” exists, outside of the reality we know, what they term “un-configured space”. An alternate dimension where they find refuge in the planets, Paxil & Kayala. There is no Sun, communication is used, but not by words. They believe once in this dimension – if you ascend, you will feel true and unconditional love.

However, to gain entry to such a place would require a very special payment – you may have heard about them from the Adventures of Indiana Jones? The Crystal Skulls…….

Material energy allows for the domination of matter, we have become the victims to the reality we close our eyes to seeing. Mankind can longer face himself with humility and honesty. We do not look to the world surrounding us to attain any wisdom, thus we destroy our own environment. Under the delusion that we are somehow, all-powerful, we worship reason and materialism. Enslaved by our own innovations, we need to stop and remember what is truly valuable – if we cannot join together we are leading down the path toward the destruction of Mother Earth and all of humanity.
