HOW TO BE FREE

--- ENLIGHTENMENT ---


Why God?

Many religions and philosophies practice a path to enlightenment. Without FAITH in God - the Eternal One - the end result of such practices is simply nothing: emptiness. You work and meditate towards nothing. Once you get to this place, you find a big empty room with nobody in it. FAITH in God fills this room with the limitless light and love of God.

Enlightenment WITHOUT God RESULTS in EMPTINESS. Enlightenment WITH God RESULTS in FULFILLMENT.

Please read this article by Dr. Herbert Benson, M.D., Mind/Body Medical Institute, Beth Israel-Deaconess Hospital, Boston and Harvard Medical School on the FAITH FACTOR.


HOW TO BE FREE:

This is how to enter into spiritual union with God:
  1. Go to a quiet place. A room or closet, and close the door. Sit quiet and still. In this still place, quietly say the Lordís Prayer 10 times (use your fingers to count them).

    The Lord's Prayer:
    Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, and deliver us from evil. Amen.

  2. Keep your mind open. If while you pray, any past sins come to your mind, any grudges you hold against others, anything un-holy, confess and renounce them and ask the Lordís forgiveness. Then thank the Lord for forgiving all of your sins, iniquities, and transgressions.

  3. This cleanses your mind and heart and prepares you to really talk to the Lord.

  4. In this still quiet place, put your hand over your heart and truly commit yourself body, mind, and soul to Jesus. Then sit quietly and enjoy His presence.

  5. You will know if you do this right. Because the prefect peace of the Lord will surround you. And you will experience the Kingdom of God - City of Refuge - Sabbath Rest - Promised Land.

[1 Kings 19:11,12] And he said, "Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD." And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.

You will know you have entered the Kingdom of Heaven within you:


CURE FOR ADDICTIONS, SIN AND TEMPTATION:

Sins and addictions are attached to your body by passion. Passion feeds passion. The more you fight addictions, temptations, and sins, the more energy it seems to give the passion which holds them. The cure for evil is letting it go. When you open up your hand and let go of the passion, evil seems to slip away. With no energy to drive itself, it simply dies out, and you will be free.

  1. Go to a quiet place, alone.
  2. Pray: Lord forgive my sins, temptations, and addiction(s)!
  3. Then relax your entire body from toe to head.
    I have found, evils rest in physical places in your body. These places are tense - tight.
  4. Set a timer for 5 minutes and repeat: Praise the Lord - quietly.
  5. As you repeat the praise, search your body for these knots of tension.
  6. When you find them, concentrate on them and relax them.

This may take a little practice. But after you have succeeded at this for a few days, you will be able to use it anytime, anywhere. Afterwards, whenever the temptation comes to do any evil - including your addiction, relax towards it, and you will have total victory.

The PEACE you enjoy as a result of this is the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN - City of Refuge - Sabbath Rest - Promised Land.


SOURCE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS:

When a person becomes enlightened and saved, he lets go of the lusts/desires of the flesh and the world.

Freedom, True Freedom is no longer being driven by the flesh to pursue all kinds of things (money, sex, power, food, alcohol, etc..) but doing righteousness. Letting go of the flesh and the world enables good to rise and be easily done. Worldy desire is like chains holding a person to the bottom of a lake. When the chains of sin and sensual desire are released, the true self floats to the surface. Free to breath fresh air.

Jesus = salvation / enlightenment = letting go. Remember Jesus walking on the water. God is Freedom.

Enlightenment is to become light, unbounded, free to fly, free of sin and sensual desire which shackle the body.


FREEDOM FROM TEMPTATION:

Jesus said: the Kingdom of Heaven is within you. I have found it and I know it is true. I am now free of the temptations that dogged me for months - by letting go and committing myself to Christ. Really. To be free of the temptations that were dogging me is wonderful. I feel like a kid again. The Kingdom of Heaven is inside of me.


HOW IT HAPPENED:

I now am at a place of deep inner peace.

Previously, I had stumbled upon the Kingdom of God while unemployed:

I was unemployed for over a year awhile back. My gut was a mess, with worry and such. My head was spinning. I had prayed all I could, and nothing seemed to work. Finally, without to much thought. I just picked up this little prayer card that was lying around the house. It was a picture of Jesus on the cross. With my head and gut spinning with worry. I sat down and started looking at the wounds of Christ on the cross. My eyes past from hand to head to hand to the gash in His side. Then it felt like a big bucket of holy water just poured over me/through me. All of my worries went away - instantly. And I knew I would have a good job soon - and I did. I have experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I know it is true.

I had focused on the crucified Lord and let go of my problems.

In the relaxing and letting go I entered into that perfect peace which is the realm of God, The True Self. Not knowing exactly what happened, I attempted to HOLD ONTO the Kingdom. This failed and after a time I entered into a period of intense trial and temptation.

Now I know, to remain in the Kingdom, you must maintain an OPEN HANDED attitude about all of life. To hold onto nothing, and let nothing hold onto you. And to remain in the hand of God simply out of love for Him who created me.

God is not found in the grasping, but in the letting go (Jesus).


THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN:

I know others have found the Kingdom of Heaven inside themselves.

I know for certain, simple faith and belief in Jesus is not deep enough to achieve what I am experiencing now. Simple faith and belief did not work for me. I know many people are going through the motions of faith, but because they lack deep commitment, it doesn't really ever go anywhere.

"BELIEVE IN" in John 3:16 means "COMMIT TO".

Commitment in a marriage kind of way to Jesus. He is ''letting go'' of sin and sensual desires. He is the key to enlightenment and Heaven everyone in all religions and philosophies are looking for.

The Kingdom of Heaven is inside of me

[Isaiah 26:3] You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

[Luke 17:21] nor will people say, `Here it is,' or `There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you."


As you read scripture, sing hymns, pray, and go to Church and am open to the Spirit of it, you should realize that the Kingdom of God has to do with:


Praise Yava Aloha!
