God is light and other matters

Written by 

From Ozodi Osuji's Daily Journal:

I deliberately throw out nuggets of information that cross my mind on a regular basis. I know that if a reader is smart he can take just one of the ideas I give away for free, think about it and develop it and even write a doctoral dissertation on it!

GOD IS LIGHT

LIGHT CONTAINS INFORMATION AND IS CREATIVE

Physics has established that light energy exists; it has shown that light energy, which came out of nowhere during the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago, contains infinite information.  It has established that light energy transformed itself to sound energy, mechanical energy, heat energy, electrical energy, chemical energy and other forms of energy. Everything in the physical universe was made from light energy and therefore is light, albeit in disguised forms. QED

Biological science has demonstrated that we think with light. When we are thinking what is really taking place is the dance of electrons in our brains.

Electrons are light with some mass but otherwise are light; electrons are light that have the necessary mass in which information about physical activities are stored.

God is spiritual light. That spiritual light can transform itself to physical light. Spiritual light transformed some of itself to physical light, light energy. It used that light energy to construct everything in our universe.

Stars, planets, plants, animals, people were all constructed with light energy; light transformed itself to electrons, quarks and quarks combined into protons and neutrons, which became nuclei and nuclei captured electrons and atoms are formed.

Matter is composed of atoms; all atoms came from light so everything in the universe is in the final analysis made of light.

Albert Einstein demonstrated that matter is composed of light multiplied by the speed of light times two: E=Mc2.

The universe is made of light and light contains information; light thinks (physical light is used by spiritual light to think).

We, the parts of spiritual light, in anthroposophical terms, the sons of God, contain the light of God; that is, we contain information, we contain thinking energy, we contain creative energy and use that creative energy, light of God, in us to do whatever we do on earth, good or bad.

We use the light of God in us for creative purposes (to love, to unify with) or to mis-create (to separate and hate).

BODY AND SOCIETY SHAPES THE INDIVIDUAL'S BEHAVIOR

Once a person is born into a body, regardless of whether he chose it before he was born or got into it by accident, he is going to experience the effects of that body on him.

The individual's body and social culture he is born in affect his behavior; to deny that fact is to be insane. Your body and culture is your fate in the world of space, time and matter.

This is not karma dictated by unknown spiritual forces but something that can be observed in the world of the here and now; your body and society affects what you do; for example, you cannot run the Olympic 100 meters dash in less than ten seconds if you were born paraplegic and is in a wheel chair.

FEAR IS THE PRODUCT OF WISH TO LIVE IN EGO AND BODY

Fear is a function of desire, the desire to live in ego and body; fear protects the wish to live in ego and body; if you do not have the wish to live in ego and body you cannot even feel fear talk more giving in to it.

If you give up the wish to live in body and ego you would no longer feel fearful; this is doable and has been done by many people.

Without fear and anger, paranoia and depression your body is calm; your body is a neutral agent for your mind to do with it whatever you want to do.

However, as long as you still live in the world of body, space and time you need food, medications, clothes and shelter for your body to be protected; if you are stark naked you would die in cold winter, unless you can rise above space, time and matter and be in a place that is not given to our earthly winters, but as long as you live on earth you must do things to adapt to the requirements of space, time and matter.

If you are spiritually advanced what are you doing to adapt to the requirements of matter, space and time?  You have transcended fear and are spiritually at a higher place what are you doing on earth?

You cannot just lie on your back in your room doing nothing, you know; so, what are you doing to make your life exciting?

You cannot go about asking people not to be fearful for they would not listen to you, for they know that they need fear to alert them to danger and take protective measures so as to survive in body.

So, what is your realistic vocation in the world after you have spiritualized yourself? Do what new age religionists do, retain identification with body and do the phony healings of that body such as energy work?

TO BE HEALED IS TO END SEPARATION AND ACCEPT THE UNION THAT IS ALWAYS THERE BUT MASKED BY THE DREAM OF SEPARATION

You are not body and your mind is not separated from God and all people; your mind is joined with all minds and with God's mind; in that state of union your mind is healed.

To be healed is to return to unified state, which is to love; you have returned to love and love all people and forgive them what they do in the dream of separation for it has not been done.

You are no longer pursuing ideal ego, and using it to mask your perception that the world of egos is nothing, and using it to judge you and other people as good or bad; you are now nonjudgmental hence calm and get along with all people.

So, what would you be doing on earth if you are healed? You would be living peacefully and happily.

How do you make money? Is it by the magical means of wishing for it, such as winning the lotto and or people putting billions of dollars into your bank account, as my deluded Igbo friend, Olumba was expecting to happen to him?

I must confess that a strict reading of metaphysics suggests that it is possible to get money through supernatural means. The still prideful Olumba lies on his bed all day long praying to God to make people put billions of dollars into his bank account and he uses that money to build a replication of Solomon's temple in his village (this is delusional thinking) and in the meantime is old, blind and dying!

One should make money by selling to people what they desire that one can produce and sell to them. I give away information on self-transformation; I could charge for that information.

HOW SHOULD A TEACHER OF GOD LIVE HIS DAY?

The question that I am asking is really this: how should a teacher of God live his day, what should he be doing and how would he get the money and resources he needs to live on? Is it by depending on the public to support him (as so-called ministers of God do by fleecing people or by depending on tax payers to carry him on their backs)?

A course in miracles says that you should do nothing until the Holy Spirit tells you what to do and says that the Holy Spirit will give you all the money you need to do the work he wants you to do and that your life would be light, and you feel like you are carried along by breezes on a cool summer evening.

It would be nice if folks can actually live as A course in miracles describes but I have not seen anybody that has lived this way; however, Jesus, from the descriptions in the Bible, apparently lived that way but since his time two thousand years ago no one else has lived that way.

So, one still have to figure out a way to live in this world of space, time and matter, how to make a living and what to do on a day to day basis, a meaningful vocation.

I will start giving weekly paid lectures to the public on using spiritual and secular psychology in solving living issues. In a typical lecture I draw 300 people; now suppose that each of them paid, at least, $20 how much is that? $6000 for a two hours talk!

ONES FEAR DRIVEN MIND SHOWS ONE A FEARFUL WORLD;

CONVERSELY, ONES LOVE DRIVEN MIND SHOWS ONE A LOVING WORLD

What is in a person's mind is reflected in the world he sees; this means that the world one sees is the out picturing of what is in one's mind. What is in one's mind colors the world one sees and experiences!

What is in one's mind does not bring about a different world; for the world is brought about by all of us, collectively; and that includes the people of the past, present and future; all God's creation played a role in bringing the world into being; the individual alone cannot bring the world into being except in his nightly unshared dreams.

Our day word is a shared world, we collectively made it up. What the individual does is color the world he sees and experiences with his inner state of mind; each person experiences the same world differently, according to what is in his mind.

For example, I was a very fearful person; I was unable to make up my mind on what to do with my life; my world showed me people who treat me as I treat me and, more importantly, showed me a threatening, fearful  world.

If I have no fear of people and the world in me and have love for all people in my mind the world would reflect that back to me and show me people loving me.

If my mind is calm and fearless I will see a world where there are no individually induced dangers (the collective dangers confronting all people will still be there) and things are cooperating with me.

WHAT DO PEOPLE IN THE WORLD OF LIGHT FORMS DO?

THEY GUIDE PEOPLE IN OUR WORLD OF DENSE FORMS

(THEY ARE WHAT FOLKS CALL SPIRIT GUIDES AND ANGELS)

People in the world of light forms have passed through our world of dense forms and have mastered how to adapt to it (if you have not mastered our world upon your physical death you return to our world to keep trying until you master it and after which upon death you no longer return to it).

From the world of light forms folks individually and collectively guide people living in the world of dense forms.

Each of us has a group of people in light forms guiding him; they do not invade his mind, space but quietly put ideas into his head and or arrange situations that he enters and learns from.

Geniuses like Albert Einstein and Ernest Rutherford were helped by people in the world of light forms who have understood how matter works.

The study of Science and technology is guided by folks in light forms. Thus, those people keep themselves quite busy helping us.

I am guided by people in light forms, such as Jesus Christ. Jesus wrote in poetic form and helps me rewrite what he wrote in poetry into prose.  I am saying nothing that he did not say but I am saying it in ordinary language that I and people like me understand.

YOU MUST JUDGE TO BE ON EARTH; YOU MUST HAVE FEAR TO BE ON EARTH; YOU CANNOT HAVE TOTAL FORGIVENESS AND STILL BE ON EARTH; YOU MUST HAVE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIPS TO BE ON EARTH, HOLY RELATIONSHIP IS FOR THE HAPPY DREAM, FOR THE WORLD OF LIGHT FORMS; IN THE WORLD OF LIGHT FORMS THERE IS NO NEED FOR EXCLUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS, NO SEX; YOU MUST EAT FOOD, TAKE MEDICATIONS, WEAR CLOTHES AND LIVE IN HOUSES TO BE ON EARTH.

You can moderate all the things that folks do on earth and your life becomes easier but if you completely let go of them you leave the earth and go to the world of light forms, aka happy dream, gate of heaven.

I HAVE GIVEN EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD THE MEANING THEY HAVE FOR ME

By themselves things are neutral; I give them the only meaning they have for me; other people give the same things the meaning they have for them.

Ultimately, things, matter, do not have any meaning and do not exist (all matter is reducible to atoms, particles, photons and in trillions of years' time to nothing).

If I gave this table the only meaning it has for me, and gave every event the meaning it has for me, I can change the meaning they have for me.

I can look at things from the ego and give them ego meaning; I can change and look at them and look at them from the Holy Spirit; that is, from love hence give them meaning.

Either ego or Holy Spirit is meaningless but one approximates the truth than the other. The truth is that the material world I see does not exist and as such is meaningless; seeing a meaningless world forces me to try to give it meaning via making ideals of it.

Idealizing things does not make then less temporary; whatever is temporary is meaningless; only formless and eternal unified spirit has meaning.

I BEHAVE TOWARDS EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MY INTERPRETATION OF IT

If the world is what I say that it is, it follows that everything is my interpretation. Perception is interpretation. I can interpret a sound as made by ghosts and have fear or interpret it as nothing and have no fear; my interpretation affects my behavior, my response to the neutral stimuli.

If I respond to everything according to my interpretation of them, the question is: what is their objective nature? Matter, atoms, particles and eventually nothing!

THERE ARE GOOD SPIRITS IN THE WORLD OF LIGHT FORMS

THERE ARE EVIL SPIRITS IN THE WORLD OF DARKNESS

Loving people, upon physical death, live in the world of light forms and from there positively try to influence us; they do not force themselves on us.

People who while on earth were evil, unloving persons, upon death, go to live in the world of darkness; a world between earth and the world of light forms and from there try to influence those on earth negatively; those are what folks call evil spirits; they do not influence you unless you are receptive to them, just as positive spirits cannot affect you unless you are receptive to them.

We have freedom and spirit can force itself on you.

PS: The above statements are my interpretations of random ideas in A course in miracles that crossed my mind this morning; in these interpretations the book is no longer abstract but commonsensical; that is my job, to render the book commonsensical, not the abstract poetry it currently is.
