SunnyDays - You're very welcome. This whole process is more of a dance with everyone, where each person is absolutely essential to help everyone else. I don't want this to be just an intellectual exercise, but more alive. I care less about whether people are agreeing with what I say, and more about people becoming curious about knowing themselves, rediscovering themselves, seeing life from a different perspective, encouraging themselves to experience life in a different way, contributing with their own experience, bringing out the truth in others.
AngelPsychic and Vince - There you go Vince! You're actually helping the women transform! I'm sure you can find the right advertising to produce the results you want.
Actually there are people who are really feeling sexual right now, perhaps because they have internal conflict and simply want some relief from feeling it, perhaps because they have had other lifetimes/or this life where they have repressed their sexual desires, but some people have incarnated because they know this is the last big party to play in seperation before the unity shift. It's like Mardi Gras. And in general, to have the experience of collective separation before it's over. People are trying to focus on anything that is incomplete, and that can take them up and down the chakras.
Frisky - Your next step always depends on your intention. What's your intention? If you've mastered LoA, then you're getting everything that you want exactly when you want it. There is no desire unfufilled. And if that's the case, then you're already moving effortlessly up the consciousness ladder.
I didn't go through the entire website, but like a lot of sites like that, there is some fact and some opinion. You're right, the earth isn't hollow. What do you think about the information posted there?
Bluth - The 5 Tibetan rites are legitimate, and there is a 6th one that is useful if you don't have a sexual partner. There are chi techniques to stay younger.
Prasanna - You're very welcome. Please keep contributing to the discussion and your own internal exploration so that others may benefit.
Cheesedip - You're right - we've all played the variety of roles over our lifetimes, just like when we switched roles when we played games as kids. I don't know if we've all had lifetimes where we've killed someone, and I don't know if Jeshua ever did in any of his lives.
In the beginning we simply wanted a animal like form to experience on the planet and over time we worked out the kinks to change our bodies into what we see today. The vision of the human experience has always been carried throughout time - no less or more than it was in the first moment. Knowing souls have always existed from our first moment here to the last moment of the human experience. The experience of the collective consciousness however, has shifted back and forth, from less conscious to more conscious and back again. That gives us a great range of personal and group experience.
So in the greater picture, we ourselves are just as wise, powerful, loving, spiritually adept as Jeshua or anyone else. In fact it was Jeshua who said "You will do all of this and more", meaning that he was very limited as to what he could do back then, and that we would have even more leeway in the future, moving beyond his demonstration with our own.
Yes the Baptism event did actually happen. John was an enlightened mystic and recognized that he was able to work with the crowd up to a certain point, and that Jeshua would be more adept at taking the reins and continuing on. John was encouraging his disciples to go over to Jeshua.
We need to consider the context of the times. Many people were attracted to John because he was fiery - he was thought to be someone who could be a rebel leader and finally get the Romans out of Judea. Jeshua was meek and mild - not at all what some people considered to be a leader of the people. So there were mixed feelings of some people to make the transition, depending on what their intention/agenda was. And there where many people who had claimed to be the Messiah over time, so there was confusion as to whom to follow.
John's endorsement of Jeshua, including the Baptismal scene, was like handing over the mantle to him and saying "This is really the guy. Follow him." Because John had a large following, and people believed and trusted him, his endorsement helped more people open up to Jeshua, at a time when people like the Zealots just wanted to kill the Romans, not turn the other cheek.
