Hi All,

I think the 3rd Christ is Gregg Braden :)
Gregg Braden has some very interesting ideas, but I think the last thing he would do is to claim to be a mythical figure.

Wow, it just seems like mankind is looking for any excuse to kill. What a murderous lot we can be. And it doesn't have to be the killing of other people, we will eradicate insects and other pests to protect crops, hunt animals to extinction (for reasons other than food), overfish the oceans, poison bees. We kill the very things that sustain us, the way diseases kill the body they inhabit (killing themselves in the process).

It's crazy.

Hi Sena,

When the Moslems overran much of North Africa and the Middle East, killing many people in the process, this was not based upon the false beliefs of Christ as God and Paul as a Saint.

When the Mongols overran much of Western Asia and parts of Europe, killing many people in the process, this was not based upon the false beliefs of Christ as God and Paul as a Saint.

When the Aztecs, started a war with their Native American neighbors, so that they (the  Aztecs) could capture live slaves, many of which were used as human sacrifices to the Aztec gods, killing many people in the process, this was not based upon the false beliefs of Christ as God and Paul as a Saint.

Instead, I would I would maintain that what drove many of these actions was the belief that it was OK to kill others if they had something that was desired (land, human bodies for slavery, etc.) or if they were doing something that was viewed as being wrong (practicing a different form of religion).

Furthermore, I would maintain that it was these types of beliefs that drove the Vikings to kill many people when they invaded both Eastern and Western Europe and it was these same types of beliefs that drove the Christians to kill many people when they went off on the Crusades and when they performed the inquisitions.

Personally, I don’t believe that any of these actions really had anything to do with the false beliefs of Christ as God and Paul as a Saint.

Hi Sena,

I’m not sure I get the connection here, in another life, how does your having been put to death by followers of Christ and Paul, disprove the historical Christ and expose Paul for the conman he was?

jbseth,
False beliefs, such as those which venerate a mythical Christ as God and Paul as a saint, cannot usually be altered by reason alone. Hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by those beliefs may cause some people, though not many, to question those beliefs. The moral principle here is that truth is a good thing, sometimes worth dying for.

Applying Seth's Concepts to Daily Life / Dealing with Divisiveness
« Last post by jbseth on January 01, 2019, 10:16:55 PM »
Hi All,

There seems to be a lot of divisiveness and hatred in our world today. Here’s a comment from Seth (“Seth Speaks”, Chapter 12, Session 550) on how to deal with it.
 
I spoke earlier of rigid concepts of right and wrong. There is only one way to avoid this problem. Only true compassion and love will lead to an understanding of the nature of good, and only these qualities will serve to annihilate the erroneous and distortive concepts of evil.

(10:28.) The simple fact is that as long as you believe in the concept of evil, it is a reality in your system, and you will always find it manifested. Your belief in it will, therefore, seem highly justified. If you carry this concept through succeeding generations, through reincarnations, then you add to its reality.

Sena, thanks for answering.  To me that feels like an answer that you feel to be pretty solid for yourself.  A good kind of answer when we can get to one that feels like that.

Sometimes I'll get to an answer for myself, and then I beat it to death until it's not clear, and sometimes that leads to a new one, and sometimes not.

Hi Deb,

Wow, thanks for sharing that Jim Carrey video. I'm guessing that it was Alan Watts who was speaking in the background and who was very spiritual, and perhaps coming from a Buddhist way of thinking???

I think that Jim is probably like me and many of us here. Sometimes, when I get centered, I come up with some really profound comments. I even amaze myself sometimes; wow, did I really say that, that was good.  Then other times, when I'm into my ego mind, I say some pretty stupid things that aren't exactly well thought out or spiritual.

It's a challenge for me to always try to remain centered and come from that deeply spiritual side, all the time, but at least for me, that's the real goal. I find for me regularly reading Seth helps. :)


I don't necessarily follow the words of any major sports star, or musician or actor. Just because they are famous, doesn't necessarily mean that they are wise or well adjusted.  On the other hand, just because they are famous doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't wise or well adjusted either.

In addition to this, sometimes, famous people really do have some very important things to tell us. Like what's happening with the "Me  Too" movement and the abuses of power that have occurred in various industries and the calling to attention of this issue and these people who have abused their positions.

Thanks for your post Deb.

jbseth

Wow, what a positive and well adjusted person (at least that's what it seems like to me). Well spoken, open, a great attitude. She seems very well equipped to deal with the ups and downs in life. Words of wisdom from unexpected places. Thanks for that!

For a while I was wowed by Jim Carrey's seemingly deep spirituality wisdom. But the past couple of years he's been using his popularity as an actor to spread his political views, which instantly turned me off. Not just him, I feel any public (nonpolitical) figure who grandstands their views because they have an audience is taking advantage of their fans and in a way an abuse of power.

To me when someone who can say something like this:

"We are not the avatars we create. We are not the pictures on the film stock. We are the light that shines through. All else is smoke and mirrors." 

and then Tweet hateful messages about people who don't share his political views, it tells me he's not as spiritually advanced as I thought he was. "Only human."

"...I can tell you that the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is. Because everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart, and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart. "

I thought this was really nice. He's still on the journey.
