Excerpts of shownotes

Hello, welcome to my show JUST BE IT on consciousness unlimited blog talk radio.

Today’s episode I want to look at the materialistic science as the primary rule to explain our world. We will also explore the sentence I am God and our individual Self, the pure consciousness we are.

90 years ago a Swiss man spoke about  the following:

“We have the tendency to explain things by its physicality

We overrate the material causes of things and think now we have an real explanations of matter. Which seems much easily known then the intangible ways of metaphysical spiritual way of the world around and in us. “

This was said by the father of modern psychology, the Swiss psychologist C.G. Jung, in his writings around 1930.

We will hear from the scientist Peter Russell and from the mystical poet Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi.. I invite you to share your thoughts on this by email please write to me! with your comments and experiences to justbeit13@googlemail.com.

….

And we looked at that we must face the shadow, the forces behind this resistance to really make a change. Facing these parts of our own does not mean to MAKE  them go away but to acknowledge them to integrate them into our inner world.

In each episode of my show I give a practice you could integrate in your Life and also last time I  suggested  to look at where you have the greatest opposition, and look what this resistance in your Life is trying to tell you…what are your thoughts and feelings about that opposition,  and  the project itself. And how does it sound familiar to something you belief, decided upon, experienced in the past. ? How did that go? Maybe having resistance doing that?

Well I noticed that the shadow is tricky and tries to hide itself and it takes a while to unravel it

however if you do this more often you will come to an inner map of voices and energies which are pretty much repeating themselves, sometimes they wear a different mask but nevertheless it’s the same energy. For me it is often that I need to check in if all of me  is really aligned with what I am doing,.meaning do I really want to do this?, do I have a vision I can identify with?

or am I just going through the motion..functioning. Sometimes it simply helps to check your Why ? Why and what for are you doing this…This will awake other energies in you, energies which can  carry the vision of what you want to accomplish what you stand for in Life .What is the desired outcome of this task in a bigger broader picture. what difference will it  make…I find this energizing and inspiring and it can carry me beyond the resistance .

Greece 2000 years ago everything was revolving around the earth.

As a Greek citizen you lived in the center of the universe in Greece you , were important!

only 400 years ago in 1616 Galileo was arrested when he said, that the earth evolved around the sun.

and it was only about 100 years ago whenscience told us there are no other galaxies besides us.

Now you are just a small biological speck on a small planet, on the border of the solar system Milky way surrounded by hundred billions of galaxies, science is telling us.

About 60 years ago in 1952 the DNA was discovered and genetically engineering seems to bring science in a creator like state. The materialistic approach of our  Science today has no need of god.

Actually we live in such a a material way of our world that there is a a complete disinterest in God and spiritualism.

Just a couple of hundred years ago there was no difference between science and spirituality. It was intertwined as a study of Knowledge in the monasteries in Europe, the knowledgeable person in that time explored astrology, medicine, herbs and alchemy and religious subjects the same.

 Sir Isaac Newton, born in 1642 was a English physicist and was considered  the most influential scientist.. He described d universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next 300 years..

Yet what is most interesting is that Isaac Newton spend far! more time studying alchemy and religious subjects then science. He wrote about half a million of commentary on mystic passages in the bible and he wrote much more about alchemy, and astrology

The scientific  dogma today is that only that which can be measured is real, all exists in space, time and matter. Nothing exists but the physical world  superdogma

Peter Russell says: Science belief if they fully understand what exists in space,time and matter we will be able to account for the whole cosmos. Peter Russell calls this the present super dogma of our society.

Peter Russel  studied ath University of Cambridge he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. He studied with Stephen Hawkings, Yet he became increasingly frustrated as a scientist and turned to easter philosophy. In an ashram of a Indian Guru he  had a Samadhi experience of pure consciousness. Samadhi meaning no mind.

I quote Peter Russell:

Nothing in the physical sciences predicts the phenomenon of consciousness. Yet its reality is apparent to each and every one of us. END OF QUOTE

 Peter Russell says , we need to accept that consciousness is as fundamental as matter—in some ways, more fundamental.

…..From a poem of  the well known mystical poet Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi lived  in what is now Turkey in th 12th century. He was the founder of the Whirling Dervishes order and a highly respected teacher by Christian, Muslims and Hindus alike. When he had passed in 1273 there was a funeral celebration of 40 days with many people attended from all religions in that time.

I am always impressed how fresh And modern his views are and how precise his language is about the Inner realm.

Two kinds of intelligence

From Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi

From the book Rumi, The Essential Rumi by Coleman Barks

 There are two kinds of intelligence: one acquired
As a child in school memorizes facts and concepts
From books and from what the teacher says,
Collecting information from the traditional sciences
As well as from the new sciences 


With such intelligence you rise in the world
You get ranked ahead or behind others
In regard to your competence in retaining
information. You stroll with this intelligence
In and out of fields of knowledge,
getting always more
Marks on your preserving tablets 


There is another kind of tablet, one
Already completed and preserved inside you.
A spring overflowing its springbox. A freshness
in the center of the chest. The other intelligence
Does not turn yellow or stagnate. It’s fluid,
And it doesn’t move from outside to inside
through the conduits of plumbing-learning.

 The second knowing is a fountainhead
From within you, you moving out.

END OF POEM

So there is an Intelligence in us which is much more complete, much more vast than any science can be. It’s knowledge encompasses All That Is, as it is identical with All That is. When we connect with this, we know ALL and its source is never ending. We are in the Knowing.

Yet today,  many live in a world that is without the light of spiritual guidance, in darkness.

God as a fatherly figure has disappeared in our society for most of us. Many people us are left disorientated, feeling disconnected and confused.

The answers lies in our self, here in the Inner Being, the Greater Intelligence

We can find not only answers for ourselves but for the acute questions science cannot answer: The meaning of Life, how to Love and Live as a God Created being, where do we come from .and what is this all about?

The times are over where we need to read or hear about it, we must experience it each for ourselves…our true nature. As Grandmother Pa’Ris_Ha says We are spirits who learn to be human. The answers are within.

Today we are coming to a threshold, materialistic science has got a grip on the explanations of the world…however our challenges demand that we include Spirituality, consciousness. We shall use science  with a spiritual maturity. Only then can we move forward out of the darkness we are in now.

That reminds me on the story : where the Angels had created our world and they did not know where to hide god in the world, so that it would be protected and respected and not too obvious. They put the spark of God inside human that is where we can find it.

But not only there. Also in the nature and all our relations around us.

Is this true science when they developed crop engineering?

With crop engineering materialistic based science believes that

there is nothing more to a plant , than size, chemistry, colour..but we know (and even science has proved that) that plants can feel and anticipate. There is indeed an unseen life force working in and around them. How much damage does this life force receive, by manipulating the DNA of the plant?…and which effects does this have on our  life force when we eat genetically engineered tomatoes ?

Materialistic science seems to me often crude and far to simplistic causing not only disturbance in the plant world but also in the healing abilities in our body.

Anyone who truly takes responsibilities for his own healing, knows that medicine works only on the symptoms as these are measurable and in a materialistic view

Can be manipulated. But what about the new healing fields of energetic and information input based on frequencies? Homeopathic medicine for example is  an energetic information code transported into the energetic level of our cells to ignite the healing process.

That seems to me a much more sophisticated and intelligent  approach  and experience has shown and been proven by research it works..

Peter Russell suggests as said before:, we need to accept that consciousness is as fundamental as matter—in some ways, more fundamental. END OF QUOTE

Our individual consciousness is again like a drop of water in the oceanic vastness of the Absolute consciousness, the Brahman. Our individual Higher Self is identical with this consciousness. It is like the drop of water  part of the vast ocean.

There is another important characteristics of our time besides the paradigma of materialistic science influencing our world.

I am talking about the individual religious experience.

C.G. Jung wrote that he always found that all the people who came to him, who were in the middle of their Life (around 35 years of age) had one basic problem: their religious view. The final cause of illnesses was for them the questions about God, their non existing relationshipp to the Divine, and by that Jung they needed to become a member of a church or a religious order.

This question is a very personal today. Rudolf Steiner the founder of the Anthroposophie had said that this epoche is the time were we need to answer the question for ourselves, as an individual.

This is different from the past where we relied on groups, religious leaders, institutions.

In the past a spiritual seeker would renounce from  the world, give up their family, go to the monastery in Europe, In India become a Sannyashin, in Tibet or China he might move to the mountains living as a hermit

Nowadays we need mystics and spiritual enlightened people which are in the world

The monasteries and mountains are our cities.

When we truly have the experience of Samadhi,  of pure consciousness we feel we are God. Meister Eckhart has been send to the inquisition of the pope, when he announced “God and I are One”. People have been killed and austerized for postulating in exhilaration and and ecstasy: I am God.

This statement as Peter Russell put its: is a smack of arrogance for many, especially if the “I” implies the individual human being God.

To a more religious person it sounds blasphemous and as said before people got killed for this.

A journey of consistent practice to still the discriminating mind, to move beyond distinctions.

Be still and know that I am God” says the bible. Many years ago, I meditated

on that sentence. I came to the realization that this sentence came from my Higher Self, the voice inside of me.

When we replace  the word God with consciousness, the Absolute consciousness then we could say I am consciousness, I am identical with the Absolute…

As Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha says” Of my self Iam nothing, of You I am everything.”

PRACTICE

Today I would like to suggest as a practice to be with the sentence. slow

Be still and know that I am God. You could play some relaxing music and sit with it, speaking quietly each word slowly,  embracing it, taking in it and see what it can do for you. Let me know at justbeit13@googlemail.com.

And remember always love your self.
