Objective Truth, Why?

If-there-is-no-truth-no

What keeps making me pulling me back out of secularism to Roman Catholicism?  This pretty much sums it up and I was having this two day interaction on twitter and when this person said there is no truth, truth is a myth, it really threw me and I asked questions.  If there is no truth, no objective truth I asked then why should we have laws, Constitutions, why not let everyone prostitute themselves, traffickers traffic, people steal, rape, after all no harm, and if there is no truth then there can’t be harm inflicted and if there is not harm inflicted then no need for law, and order, or consequences.  They were in total shock that I would say such a thing, of course there is right and wrong, has to be law and order.  I pointed out, if there is no body of authority to put forth the parameters of right or wrong, of boundaries etc.. how do you know what is right or wrong, what boundaries are sacred and healthy, wise.

Without objective truth than truth can change with with the wind and that is one thing that is a flaw in the Protestant world, Church, there is no singular, clear body of Cannon Law and Truth. One of the reasons I am pulled to go back to the Roman Catholic faith, it’s that there is clarity because the Church studies the Bible from various points and also works with the sciences integrated with philosophy and theology.  It’s not Sola Scriptura, but a truly holistic approach.  This Pinetrest  image summarizes why I am pulled back to the Catholic faith.  If only my exhausting allergies would let up I could get to church and Legion of Mary meetings. 

Shalom and Amen

Do I Go Home?

Resurrection

As I watch the culture war play out and the Left gain more of a foothold, faith communities go off in all directions, truth being subjective I look back to the faith of my family, my ancestors, who at some point embraced the Catholic faith, for whatever reason.  I look at doctrine that is steeped in lots of theological, philosophical etc.. grounding, probing so on and so forth, at how it is based on objective biblical, even scientific truth.  I may not agree with the giving sanctuary to illegals inside churches, that part I may reject, but holistically, there are basic objective truths that are unchangeable and you live by, something I like.  They are not based on human whim or social whims, but on in depth connection of Theology, Philosophy and the Sciences.  There is an acceptance of mystical experience within prayer and faith life, but the foundations are Biblical theology, solid philosophy and the sciences.   I realize that there is no reason why I can not honor the faith of my father, my mother, my ancestors and still honor myself, what I find very relaxing, meditation, Reiki.  I can meditate and work with Christian affirmation, Ignatius Exercises, different spiritual meditations and general ones, meditate with the rosary as well.  The more I see how society is unraveling, the more I see my worldview as always having been one of objective truth, morally etc… being crucial even when I stumbled, fell, didn’t live up to it.  I realize how crucial it is to have a faith that establishes and maintains, something I hope the Roman Catholic Church always will, Clear, Unmovable Objective Truth.  Where does this leave me, this ahhha moment during mediation?  What do I do? Do I go home to Catholicism?  What do I do?

I think I should start with weekly Mass at St. Peter’s two blocks from my house, one of the oldest churches in NYC, and joining the Legion of Mary to grow in prayer and faith, fellowship. I also should continue to meditate, study metaphysics and related subjects.  I think we do come full circle and often end up back home, which is not a bad place to be really when that home is one that seeks and puts forth objective truth.  The institution is one of people and they are human, so they are not perfect, none of us is, but if they stay the course and maintain that objective truth, never deviate, never be “of the world”, but rather reject things and philosophies “of the world” trends of the world so on and so forth, then it will be a home for truth, for objective scriptural and spiritual truth.  For me in my personal journey this I realize matters a great deal.  I truly believe that Yeshua was the Massiach, and I have to honor that and my firm, strong belief in objective truth, not subjective as the guide for living life well.  I also know from experience that living by whim and subjective truth is not the way to go, it’s just not. 

Shalom and Amen

Where To Go From Here?

lonely evneing road

 

I have greater clarity after meditating on this that my core spiritual self rejects organized religion with lots of bureaucracy and hypocrisy,  yet I do want community, but I am also not really feeling up to spending the two years or so learning new rituals, a new faith etc.., nothing complicated anyway.   If I look at the threat of my life, the two things that are constant are Metaphysics and Meditation, on my spiritual journey anyway.  Therefor, what do I do now?  Do I just go back to Roman Catholicism just because it’s what I am familiar with? Do I pursue Jewish studies, that faith path, which means a whole new way of living, which in my household with a very Catholic Italian mom is not too easy, add my special diet and all that, gets tricky, very tricky. I firmly believe in God, firmly embrace Yeshua as my Rebbe, my Teacher, all of that, a strong anchor for me, Mashiach.  It comes back to the threat and both are positive ones, they are quite Zen and in meditating, I like to do chakra meditations or a particular type of very easy going exercise while listening to sacred music, instrumental.   I also happen to be a stickler for this quote, even if I have fallen prey now and again to relative morality, not a good thing I assure you. I happen to be a stickler for living up to this: ” A system of morality which is based on relative emotional values is a mere illusion, a thoroughly vulgar conception which has nothing sound in it and nothing true.”, courtesy of Socrates.  I also happen to be a warrior, not one to not say what I have to say and if you don’t like it, not my problem.  What do I do with all this? Oye! 

Like I said I look to the threads.  I need to focus on my wellbeing, releasing the fibromyalfia and some other stuff from my system and life.  The things that help me release, center besides meditating on connection to Yeshua, to Christ, to that anointing are philosophy and meditation, active, not passive meditation.  Therefor, seems to me that I need to find a place near home, which I have that offers Zen meditation, hatha yoga and I can engage in that and as I do the meditating etc… focus on connection to the Trinity, cleansing of self and life, healing in Yeshua.  I will never let go of Yeshua as my personal anchor and Rebbe, nor will I not study scripture independently, but right now I have to focus on my coaching studies, and my health/wellness, so I can have a New Year with a better state of wellness and prepared to be the best Holistic Life/Relationship Coach I can be. 

Shalom and Amen

Spiritual Core of Me

duality-human-nature-11601507

As I embarked on this journey of finding out who I am, the DNA testing and all that and have made a journey that spiritually is like a maize, I am having to really look at what gives me true peace, clarity.  What is it?

The thing that gives me real peace, clarity is meditating, meditating on the metaphysical, metaphysical meditations, meditating on the Kabbalah Tree of Life, certain music and affirmations, doing so in Yeshaua’s name calling on him as my Rebbe, my friend.   That is what gives me peace, clarity, contentment, not religious ceremony or things of that nature, but celebrating the Jewish feasts along with Advent and Christmas as birth and ushering in the new, releasing the old with the help of my personal Rebbe and Friend Yeshua makes a difference.  Am I Jewish, Christian, what?  I am I suppose simply Metaphysical Philosopher with a great love for the Jewish Roots of my personal chosen Rebbe and Mashiach, Yeshua.  That is my path, my journey, so learning more about different techniques of meditation that I would be comfortable with is where I realize my spiritual journey needs to be.  I need to honor that, and to honor what I believe that Yeshua is the Mashiach.  As for a particular denomination, not something I am ready to embrace, but I do have a philosophy, core one, this quote from Socrates, sums it up well.
“A system of morality which is based on relative emotional values is a mere illusion, a thoroughly vulgar conception which has nothing sound in it and nothing true.”

I need to stay true to this and a few other core principles, including a few key proverbs http://www.beliefnet.com/faiths/christianity/galleries/10-proverbs-to-simplify-your-life.aspx  I will be able to live a healthy and abundant life.

 

 

Ghosts Come in Different Forms

Transforms Her Dark Light

A few weeks ago I went to have some medical records and saw someone who there was from the first encounter this spark this natural flow of energy, and then every time we would see each other this natural banter.  I knew he was “it”, but it never went anywhere beyond bantering, smiles and joking. It was very sweet.  Last night my fibormyalgia pain because of the weather  was kicking up a storm, the pain was pretty intense in my legs and my hands, but in spite of the pain, a friendly ghost made their way through the scene, yup the memories of this connection, of our bantering, that sweet connection.  I focused on that and on God, on Yeshua how much he loved God, how he was willing to give up his life, even if you put aside the Messiah context, to do so because he wanted an end to the bureaucratic crap that was keeping the people from being close to God, close to forgiveness and healing.  Even if just on a metaphysical scale, it’s still something, that he was willing to lay down his life for his fellow man for their ability to have closeness with God, not be under the elitist bureaucracy that plagued religion.  Those two things, really helped me through the pain.  We often think that Ghosts have to be negative, but they can also be sweet, comforting, and for me remembering this connection, the sweet element of it is a positive ghost, a comforting one, even if it never went beyond the bantering, though it had lots of potential to go the distance.  Still, it’s a nice memory, and brings comfort, as does thinking of Rebbe Yeshua.

Shalom and Amen

What It Came Down TO

Christ Prophocies fulfilled.jpg

I am moving forward with Yehsua Group, even hope to volunteer , be a part of Holy Language Academy.  Ministry has always been my central calling, since my teen years.  I had to ask myself a lot of questions and I had to go through a rough journey internally, but it was necessary.  What questions did I have to ask: 

  1. Is scripture true
  2. Is God truthful and faithful to this word?
  3. Was Yeshua truthful in saying He was the Temple that would be raised up in three days etc..?
  4. What of the Apostles, what of them, and the said testimonies, that over 500 saw him resurrected?
  5. Where is it said that any of the apostles sought to relinquish their Jewish identity in the early church of Yeshua?
  6. If the early church had no intention of shedding their Jewish identity, if that was never a commandment given by Yeshua, then why are we not adhering to the faith of Yeshua?
  7. Why are we not in context of Messiah, the fulfilled prophecies not honoring our Jewish heritage and faith? 
  8. How could I use my my skills as a Holistic Practitioner and NLP training to help others and incorporate the spirituality that is so important to me in my work?

I had to go through all of these questions and as I did and asked God to help me with these answers and guide me to the right people, community, mentors etc.., I was contacted on twitter by Yeshua Groups  God led me also to take a Udemy course online in NLP and the instructor has an online group for students to be part of.  Now a number of us are creating a community to work together to network, support and mentor each other, see how we can work to bring healing to people in a way that reaches those who need it, perhaps veterans, those on fixed incomes, we will see as we work it all out, but it will be a blessing to us and others I am sure.  We want to earn a living, but also give back to society, and feed the soul.  As I sought the Lord, clarified that We are Jewish if we are with Yeshua, accepting his as the Christ the Messiah Promised in the Pentateuch, and so I have been led to where I can truly be part of that and also led to where I can be in a community of healers who seek to make a difference.  I look forward to a beautiful journey of hope and healing, of deep faith, and much more.

Shalom and Amen 

 

What’s New?

God's Holy Days.jpg

Yeshua Groups!

Yesterday I spoke to Izzy one of the founders and I am on track to lead a Yeshua Group, create a sense of community, which I love.  Church used to be that, community, discussion, reflection, community.  I want to gather in a semi public place, tell the stories of the bible, have everyone in the group contribute, research something about the background of the story, share, contribute, and then we can reflect, discuss. Community is what lifts us up, not to say we shouldn’t understand the moral lessons, the lessons of ethics and integrity, but open ended questions, discussion, connection, that matters.  I look forward to creating that.  Stay tuned for more!

What Was The Actual Deception?

duality-human-nature-11601507

There are not a lot of specifics in the Eden narrative in the Bible and we are left to wonder what was, is the core lie that Satan told, tells humanity, which led them to be disconnected from God, from the realm of heaven and thus lose their immortal soul, to have to have God put his Word to Flesh? 

A conversation recently gave me a pretty good idea.  A center for holistic stuff, someone there had called me to discuss my possibly training with them as a spiritual life coach.  Hitler came up and in the metaphysical, New Age objective truth, Dharma view of things, Hitler was not evil, he had a path, he got lost, he was not evil, not an evil man, etc….get the gist. As I thought about other conversations with those of the New Age persuasion, even a family member most recently, it finally hit me.  Satan’s lie isn’t that he doesn’t exist or even that God doesn’t, his big lie is subjective truth and morality.  That’s his big lie.  Now we have a society where there are no boundaries, Pedophoellia is being given a different name, label to try and make it seem less horrific and deplorable than it is.  If Hitler, Stalin, if their souls were not so corrupted, so not even sure there are words to describe it, then what is evil.  These men were and are, same as with Pol Pot, Mao Zedong.  These men were, always will be the definition of EVIL.  Gender Dysphoria is it seems the norm now and irresponsible parents are having their young kids have surgery rather than help them understand who they are in Christ, that they were made male or female according to the will of the creator and that is to be cherished, loved, honored, celebrated, whatever distorted thoughts they have about their sexuality, gender is not coming from God, from a place of distortion, rejection of self.  There is even a website that promotes alternative relationship situations, trios and whatever else goes for you to be happy.  Subjective truth is all about me me me in this moment, what my impulses say I want, all about feeling, and that means lots of distortion, means the Prince and Principalities etc.. Paul spoke of in the New Testament are loud and clear and they are the ones being listened to, just like in the Garden. 

In that Garden oF Eden, they had a choice to make honor and believe in God’s objective holy truth, or Satan’s subjective do as you please, screw any and all consequences, even to your own well being, that of others etc.., just do your thing and whoever doesn’t like it, screw you, God included.  Ding Ding, first prize if you can guess which one they chose, we have a winner, it wasn’t God’s truth, nope, it was the Satan Version 2.0, do as I please, to hell with anything else.  I’ve been there more than once, never ended well.  I got lost in the choice thing myself and more than once chose the rebel truth, Satan’s truth, and it didn’t work out well.  It seems now, more and more people are spitting in the face of God’s truth, of objective truth and instead moving more and more to Satan’s Subjective Truth 2.0 or higher.  What can we who get it do, well, speak up, and yeah you might get people yelling your face, but it’ll be something to put in our diary.  Not saying to stand on a corner all by yourself and start screaming the Gospel, no.  Maybe you can get packets of bookmarks with some bible passages and when you go to the beauty salon, when you are leaving, say, I want to say thank you for the great service and in addition to the tip you leave give them a bookmark, little things like that. 

Satan is very clever, he disguises subjective truth and reality, including in the moral arena as “rights” and “happiness, pursuit of” and all that jazz.  If truth is only what I feel, want etc.. in any given moment and not based on long term foundations, then there is not truth, so what does society have, nothing, what do people have, nothing, who are they, nothing, no one because they have no care identity, since there is no core.  The New Agers will say, the core is “spiritual being”, there is not sin, only good and bad decisions, so what Hitler did, it was his spiritual being out of alignment, uhh, no it was evil, pure satanic evil.   Subjective truth, even those who participated in the atrocities will twist and turn things to justify what they did.  Truth either is or isn’t, either we core truths, unchangeable, by which our nation, our faith institutions, we live by or we have nothing, we have no truth.  For those of us who have been found or found themselves again, truly, we understand this and we understand that God’s Word is Objective Truth, The Truth, Principles by which nations, society, and lives can thrive. Subjective truth, not truth, it’s whatever works according to what I feel in the moment, and according to what I see as truth, as reality, as moral truth etc…, me, I’m the God source, the one making the rules, me.  No, that’s not how it works, not according to God, not according to scripture.

Satan sold Adam and Eve a big lie, subjective truth and reality, truth is whatever you want, whatever you need it to be to be happy happy happy etc.., that’s truth.  Only, it’s not. 

Shalom and Amen

 

Still With You

I Am Still With You

As I watched the Capitol 4th Celebration on TV and they mentioned 9/11, I thought of the dreams I had had that week about people jumping out of buildings, buildings on fire, funerals, crazy dreams that made no sense at the time and that morning just before the alarm was set to ring, shortly before I had a dream with my Nanna, dad’s mom telling me, go back to sleep, stay in bed, it’s not your time to go.  I didn’t understand, but my gut said, listen to Nanna.  When the alarm rang and mom came to wake me up at 8:15 or so I said no, Nanna said to stay in bed, not time to go and I refused to go to the appointment. Well if II had I would have been in the Towers. 

Was it my Nanna? Was it God sending an angel in my dreams taking shape as Nanna so I would listen and not go that day? The theology really of it didn’t matter, still really doesn’t matter.  What did and does is that God was with me, felt I needed to be here, had something to do with my life, now granted fibromyalgia hit and hit hard, and I have had a winding journey to get to the understanding that I love inspiring and coaching whether directly or through the arts, but still.  It also as I remembered this and my dad, different people, realized they never leave us, their memory, even if there was family turmoil and they were not in our lives long, they never leave us.  I didn’t see Nanna after I was 10 years old, and my dad I was ten when I last saw him alive and then saw him again in a casket.  People may not be with us physically, but they don’t ever leave us, what they said, taught us, memories created, all of that crops up at times, depending. We are shaped by those in our lives, our interactions etc…I need to take a look at that for myself, my own life.

There is someone else who is always with us, the one who created us, He, the Word Made Flesh, and the Spirit of Counsel, and as I re-learn about our nation, it’s birth, different events that gave birth to us, to the USA, I know that to be true.  Never forget we are never alone, though people may forsake us, the Trinity and Heavenly hosts do not.  Amen
