Uploaded on Dec 14, 2010 A group of religious scholars board Babylon 5, seeking to understand what alien cultures believe about the nature of God, the universe and the soul (believing that in doing so, it will help them better understand their Creator.) Minbari Ambassador Delenn describes how her own people view the soul, and asks the 'true-seeker' to describe the 'emotional core' of his own spiritual belief, and what it means to him.

Uploaded on May 21, 2009 My favourite scene from Babylon 5; An excerpt from the episode 'Meditations of the Abyss' in season 5. ---------------------------------------- "And as a result, we spend too much time trying to be serious as if that proved that we were more enlightened. Better than everyone else. But we can't be free until we learn to laugh at ourselves. Once you look in the mirror and see just how foolish we can be, laughter is inevitable. And from laughter comes wisdom. Next question." "What is truth? And what is God?" "You don't really want an answer to that question." "Yes, I do. Please." "If I take a lamp and shine it toward the wall a bright spot will appear on the wall. The lamp is our search for truth, for understanding. Too often we assume that the light on the wall is God. But the light is not the goal of the search. It is the result of the search. The more intense the search, the brighter the light on the wall. The brighter the light on the wall the greater the sense of revelation upon seeing it. Similarly, someone who does not search, who does not bring a lantern with him sees nothing. What we perceive as God is the byproduct of our search for God. It may simply be an appreciation of the light, pure and unblemished, not understanding that it comes from us. Sometimes we stand in front of the light and assume that we are the center of the universe. God looks astonishingly like we do. Or we turn to look at our shadow and assume that all is darkness. If we allow ourselves to get in the way we defeat the purpose which is to use the light of our search to illuminate the wall in all its beauty and in all its flaws. And in so doing better understand the world around us." "Yes. But... What is truth? And what is God? "Truth is... a river." "And what is God?" "God is... the mouth of the river."

ॐ The Hundredth Monkey ॐ

The Hundredth Monkey Effect. The conscious aspect of the mind involving our awareness of the world and self in relation to it is conscious awareness.
" hundredth monkey phenomenon " I live and work alone and travel light, relying largely on my memory and making a point of letting intuition guide my way. --Lyall Watson*
(In the 1960's by several Japanese primatologists of Japanese macaques or Snow monkeys). Watson alleged that the scientists were "reluctant to publish [the whole story] for fear of ridicule." He wrote that he had "to gather the rest of the story from personal anecdotes among primate researchers, because most of them are still not quite sure what happened." So, wrote Watson: I am forced to improvise the details, but as near as I can tell, this is what seems to have happened. In the autumn of that year an unspecified number of monkeys on Koshima were washing sweet potatoes in the sea. . . . Let us say, for argument's sake, that the number was ninety-nine and that at eleven o'clock on a Tuesday morning, one further convert was added to the fold in the usual way. But the addition of the hundredth monkey apparently carried the number across some sort of threshold, pushing it through a kind of critical mass, because by that evening almost everyone was doing it. Not only that, but the habit seems to have jumped natural barriers and to have appeared spontaneously, like glycerine crystals in sealed laboratory jars, in colonies on other islands and on the mainland in a troop at Takasakiyama.

Blogging: Jason tells the story of Martin preaching for equality and civil right movement and needing to hear the voice of the Father. Why is it we try to kill the beautiful people they ask at then end? Why is it why try to kill at all? I'd say it begins with not wanting to know them and when we do know them we end up seeing ourselves and that we are all the same, then our heart would have to grow big enough to love, accept and let people life out their life as they see fit, rather than living under the control of the majority. Embracing infinite diversity brings infinite unity.

"50,000 bulbs," it read. The second answer was, "One at a time, by one woman. Two hands, two feet, and one brain." The third answer was, "Begun in 1958."
"For me, that moment was a life-changing experience. I thought of this woman whom I had never met, who, more than forty years before, had begun, one bulb at a time, to bring her vision of beauty and joy to an obscure mountaintop. Planting one bulb at a time, year after year, this unknown woman had forever changed the world in which she lived. One day at a time, she had created something of extraordinary magnificence, beauty, and inspiration. The principle her daffodil garden taught is one of the greatest principles of celebration."

The resources/messages I chose to share are just that -- messages. Certain videos have great gems and pearls of wisdom. There may be parts you don't agree with or that don't resonate with you. AWESOME! I challenge you to open your mind and heart and receive what is possible when you are open. The challenge is to listen and hear past the messenger or parts that are not true for you.
Sharing resources does not indicate or imply my endorsement or promotion of messengers, modalities, speakers, organizations, communities, celebrities, religions, authors, spiritual practices, teachers, guides, churches, etc. I share Universal messages and truths with people I am guided to share with. I trust something I share will resonate with you or speak to what you are experiencing at this time. May you hear what you are meant to hear. May the messenger's clarity, passion, wisdom, perseverance and conviction rub off on you! :-)
