Imagine All The People


Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity.

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer
But Im not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say I’m a dreamer
But Im not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
- Imagine, John Lennon

Alone In A Crowd

By Owen Waters
Infinite Being
December 23, 2007

The Christmas and New Year’s Holidays are often a time of gathering together for friends and relatives. The holidays can also be a time when spiritually-aware people feel a certain aloneness, even in the midst of a crowd.

It helps to know what can cause such a sense of loneliness, and why it affects spiritually-aware people more so than others. Your outer personality is designed to focus upon the five senses and upon the experience of the outside world which those senses deliver. As it says on our HOME PAGE:

“Just as each snowflake is unique, so is each person. Your primary purpose in life is to experience life from one individual, unique point of view. You are an expression of Infinite Being as it experiences itself from all possible viewpoints.”

Your purpose here on Earth is to experience being an individual, and that is exactly why a sense of isolation can occur, especially during the holidays. Because we are all connected within, we need to take a moment to go beyond the separated appearance of a room full of individuals and recall the inner connection that we share with the people around us.

Recalling that inner connection is not hard. At night, in the deepest level of sleep, you reconnect with your soul family and thrill at the union you all share. Soul families consist of people who resonate to the same ‘musical’ tone of consciousness as each other. Each person has a signature tone of consciousness which represents who they are.

When you meet people in your soul family at night, you know them by the unique signature tone of consciousness that radiates from them. It doesn’t matter how their spiritual body appears to your sense of spiritual vision, you know them by how their unique consciousness signal, their ‘signature tone,’ feels to you.

Each person belongs to a primary group of soul mates which, typically, numbers somewhere around eight souls. This primary group vibrates in close harmony with other groups which, in turn, vibrate in close harmony with still more groups. The number of people in an extended soul family can easily stretch to two thousand or more individuals. Among these, especially the closer ones, are the people that you interact with in meaningful ways as you pass through life on Earth together. In fact, you plan your life as a soul before you begin your life so that you can arrange to meet significant friends who will help you through significant events and experiences in that life.

Part of your consciousness lives with the pure essence of your soul family all the time, not just at night when the main focus of your attention rises through the spirit realms to meet them. It is your awareness of that soul family-connected part of yourself which makes you yearn for the close community that you experience in those other realms of consciousness.

The holidays are a good time to remember that, no matter how different people appear to each other through their surface personalities, deep down we are all one.

Feel the connection. Feel the love that binds all of life in this universe together, and remember that, in the ultimate reality,

“We are all Infinite Being.”



If I was something more

I would make this world a wonderful place. I would remove the corruption of government, and do away with parties. People would be put into positions because of their skill, not their lobbyist. Financial matters would be used to build up the people of the land, and not bonuses for one person. Schools would be a no brainier as the most important part of every citizen’s child. We would train our children not just on the matter of education, but on the importance of tolerance and social charity. I would work to make war a false teaching of hate. There is no reason to kill another when we can share. There would be no waste of food, and we would make all land able to grow food. Things of this nature are why I want to be a leader for the future and today.

I would use technology to create solar power on all buildings and find ways to save power. We would not have a stock market, we would have a humane way to make sure that no one need go without. This is not a dream, it really can happen. I will never let any religion have sole dominion on a persons life. No matter how many religions there are, I would monitor them, and make sure every person was allowed to learn. Society can not function on religion alone, and I do not believe we are born defective. We are born as people, and we only hate because others teach us false ideas. There would be no racism in my government. People would be allowed to marry who they choose, and children would always be allowed adoption into loving homes regardless of sexual preference.

It seems to me the real problems of this day and age all come down to selfish people. People who think they own this land. I would out law any person right to any land. The main goal would always be what is the best way to share the land? If people wanted to be farmers and needed their families help, then I would make sure families could grow together. I would use companies to make the best use of all locations on this planet. I would do away with private contractors, and use public communes. In my world you would not be detained, or tortured, or intimidated. You would have rights, and your rights would be protected by law. There would be no way for secret police to take you away, or other types of intimidation that are being used by the patriot act. There would be no war on terror, or war on drugs. People would be allowed to make their own choices.

I would not have illegal aliens, as this is not needed in a global world. Once again, the idea to share would be a part of education. How much healthier this world would be when we stop making power and money the definition of success rather than the ability to create community. It all seems so hard, and far away to think that there is a better way to do things then the way we are doing them right now. Still, I am not one to give up on people. I think people are the answer to all the worlds problems. When we can unite in mind and body that we are creating a world for all, and do away with the lies of today, we will find a life full of potential. In a world that refuses to look at pollution and global warming, this might be the only way to survive. All I can do is hope people will work together for the betterment of today.

It is not me, it is us.

There are people who do not wish for unity. Moreover, when they find a person who has the ability to make sense of the world, and bring people together, these people will do there best to subterfuge the speakers ideals. I was not a martyr because I did anything wrong to anyone, I was a martyr because I said we can do this. We do not have to give into hate of another. This is not the way of us. We want unity, we want a world that works together for the good of all, and it is the ones who speak and preach this kind of agenda that are sought out by the rich and powerful ones who do not want to lose hold of the great fortunes they have made by deceiving society. We can have clean energy now, yet they make up all kinds of reason why we can not do it. The economy is not the problem, it is the billion dollar bonuses that go to one, when just twenty thousand given to many would achieve a much more balanced today.

I do not care to be known to the world or the powers that be. This makes it all that more easy for them to take me away from you. The people of greed, lust, envy, and hate only wish to keep the billion dollar bonuses going, and every time a person like me brings together society to gather in the streets, and vote on petitions to control the beast. The beast sends his angels of light to kill the message. Just like MLK, JFK, and little ole John Lennon. These men’s only real crime against the beast? They spoke in a way that made us all say, we can do that. We can have solar powered cars today! We can tax 25% of all bonus money to go into social security. After all, that bonus money was only made possible by all of us buying, not because one person sat in an office high above the rest of us. Sadly, these people have control of the media, the government, and even our military. In reality though, we can take all these back if we unite as a people.

It is there intention to make us focus on hate. I hate them Niggar Loving Democrats! Flows so easily off the tongue don’t ya think? Why it is them White Racist Republicans that are the problem!!! They have us at each others throats while they choose to use our money to bail out banks, and other ideas they say are to big to fail. Life is about failure. It is the only way we learn what is not working. And Pollution Politics is not working… Regardless of party association, we as a people want progress, not stagnation. Therefore, when a person like me starts to speak in such a down and out way, they fear the masses might take heed, and give into the idea. I Love my Brother be he Republican or Democrat. I want us to work together for the betterment of all people, not just those who have too much money. As they keep us hating each other, they take away our unions, they take away our welfare, and now they are invading and taking away what it means to be Christ Like. For in Christ, all are one. So, why my brothers and sisters do you hate your fellow Christians because they don’t vote like you? Because they use the media to fill our mind with their opinion of church and state as one.

Oh to be sure, it is very subtle. Yet, when I was a Christian. I never hated anyone. It was and still is inconceivable to hate another just for their ideas. I want to think that by working together, the church can influence the state in a healthy way, yet never make the church a prostitute of the state. For shame to force the state to deny any persons right to attend the religion of their choice. Once again, they have us focusing on hate. You must hate this person because they do not accept Christ. And we fall for it. We rant and we rave, and we hate… Is this the destiny we want our children and grand children to follow? Only you can decide to look at the reality of our nation, and say if these two parties that have been in stale mate for at least the last forty years will not confront the problems, then we the people must find another way to make government work.

Today's Diversion

The man who craves disciples and wants followers is always more or less of a charlatan. The man of genuine worth and insight wants to be himself, and he wants others to be themselves, also. - Elberd Hubbard (1856-1915)
