My journey for the truth: a somewhat unremarkable story

12. The Collective has always been and will always be; therefore, when we die and “return” to the Collective, ending “life” as we know it, returning to the Collective to “live” forever as part of the Collective. This reflects the precept of immortality by returning to the Father’s house as a place that has/had been prepared for us (multiple references not listed).

13. I believe that the Collective is the source of all things as the Creator, including all knowledge (ref: The Name of the Rose, 1986 film). All knowledge including all truth as well as all laws of everything including physical, natural and spiritual laws are possessed by the Collective. I believe that “man” has unrecognized knowledge of the Collective and has been unwittingly corroborating this knowledge repeatedly in film and print throughout our existence.

14. Being aware of our connection with the Collective is part of the journey that each individual is traversing in our individual spiritual journey to return to the Collective. This journey may be the core-motivating factor of our being/soul; i.e. to return home and rejoin the Collective.

a. Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (ref: John 14:6)

b. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. (ref Romans 12:2)
i. This is direct instructions to look within through study and

c. Since we are continuously connected to the Collective we can we learn to “join” each other and transfer positive energy across any time/space to others and therein to ourselves as part of the Collective? This exercise could be compared to prayer in many other organized religions.

15. I believe that all organized religions are derivations of this belief system that have become confused by through interpretation of perceived reality. All organized religion represents a different place in the relative journey of the participants to return to the Collective. By comparison, an automotive engineer has knowledge of how a car functions while the operator only knows how to drive. Each individual is on their own journey to relearn truths that are already known but hidden from perception and will be revealed to each individual as those truths are requested/sought through personal development.

16. Since we are each, one with the Collective, we are unable to be “more connected” or closer to the Collective. Therefore, being closer is not possible or may be unachievable as well as unnecessary.

a. This truth was revealed to me on 7/5/17

b. See item #11: this truth is the core of the “journey” of dynamic awareness we each must traverse at our own pace and level of understanding.

c. I’m actively seeking the “how-to” of this point and asking for further instruction

17. I believe that our primary purpose is to love everyone and every thing.

a. Matthew 22:37-39 37Jesus replied: "'Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'

b. See item 3a

c. “Love Fearlessly” revealed to me 6/14/17

d. Let your love shine and be visible
1. Matt 15:5

e. I “feel” as if the love that I have to share is like a power or my light to shine upon all.
1. This power is visible to some
2. My “feel” of this power or love light has a physical manifestation
2a. Aura
a1. This is like a colored cloud or vapor that can be pushed out to envelop someone or something
b. Wings
b1. Sometimes it feels as if I have these angelic like wings that I can unfurl and then wrap around someone or something in an expression of love
b2. Something that I can unfold or push out from my soul/being

3. I can “feel” this love
a. Emanating from me
b. Love is a physical power or force to be used

18. Precept: I do not believe that the Collective, or God, needs, wants or desires us to worship them/his/her/it.

a. I don’t believe that there is any value in the time spent in worship

b. What is needed is practical application
i. To display love, to show love or to actually enact love that is felt

c. Prayer, as part of worship, is wasted. Since we are continuously connected to the Collective, meditation is an enhancement tool
i. Ongoing conversation can be prayer like and or could be simply a conversation with the Collective
ii. Meditation should also be used when connecting with the Collective

d. It is much more difficult to live a life of love and be open to let others see the hope in your life
i. I’m working on this one daily

19. Precept: I believe that altered consciousness is bad for the body and therefore bad for The Collective

a. Anything that alters your state of mind or creates a loss of control could be considered inhibiting your connection to The Collective
i. Alcohol, drugs, etc
ii. 1 Corinthians 6:19
ii1. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;

This post is not part of my belief system, but rather a casual observation
I think we expect too much from this life. Maybe it's because we have such and easy time as compared to a few hundred years ago. Having a life of leisure has made us slow witted and lazy. Having too much time on our hands for recreational pursuits can cripple the natural state of survival.

Most people simply exist and have forgotten what it was like when we needed to fight to survive day-to-day or year-to-year. Man has spent an eternity struggling to survive by attempting to control his environment: shelter, heat and food. Through evolution, we have managed to gain control of most of our lives by balancing our existence within the constraints of a sociological machine with defined parameters or "norms" from which we cooperatively work to exist.

This nice little balancing act allows us to complain about the price of milk or the fact that our coffee is too hot. Reality is much more difficult and I wonder about the survival of most of society if something truly bad happened. Many of the people I work with couldn't walk home if their lives depended on it.

Jus' sayin'...

There are a few other considerations:

1. The oldest parts of the human brain run on instinct and reaction to the environment. There is the idea of energy conservation and the principal of least action, which affect animal behavior. Animals save energy for fight-or-flight; they do the least—expend the least energy—while going through life in order to survive. So we as animals are wired for energy conservation to begin with.

2. Maslow's hierarchy of needs. Until the lower needs—food, shelter, safety, and then relationships—are met, it is difficult for an individual to concentrate on the higher needs such as accomplishment and self-actualization, because there is so much daily pressure from just trying to survive. So while in survival mode, energy conservation would be the instinctive reaction. To put this in another context, when one is depressed, and one doesn't know if surviving is possible or wanted, one becomes "paralyzed" and does nothing at all. 

3. Modern-day people are bombarded by media continually. Media anesthetizes and brainwashes. The pressure from Hollywood (to be young, beautiful, rich) and newstainment (keeping fear alive; grabbing attention for senseless things), and the chaos on the Internet with every distraction possible while sitting in a chair, all add up to a disastrous recipe for keeping the mind in survival mode, while also satisfying vicariously higher needs such as accomplishments. One can vicariously enjoy the sensation of accomplishment while watching an athlete score a goal, or some 4-year-old who can play a concerto, or those contest programs where people compete with dancing/singing, without actually doing anything at all.

The masses are responding to outside prompts, and in general, not creating their own lives. The first thing is to unplug from the media. But the digital world makes that really hard for most people. I feel most people are more asleep than ever, thinking thoughts put in their heads by media. People these days "know" more because of exponentially greater access to information via digital means, which I think skews the picture. 

It is paradoxical that the world wide web has both introduced the idea of connectedness to the masses and separated people at the same time. And, because more information is available—whether it be true, false, nonsense, exaggeration, or fact—it paradoxically reveals catalyst, while validating the mindset not ready to deal with the catalyst.

In addition, we continue to create barriers between us and nature. This allows a great disconnect to the wholeness of existence. Sitting in a chair watching TV or surfing the Internet, or texting someone else while standing next to a friend who is also texting someone else, creates a wall between self and this world of diverse life (and again, paradoxically from each other), allowing us to mistreat this planet and all the life upon it because we aren't connected with the heart, just with a device.

RE: My journey for the truth: a somewhat unremarkable story
I like your post Diana.  That's some truth that is especially hard for me to deal with.

For all of this technology, most of it does nothing more than be used for distraction.

We have all the tech we need to fix our society, we just need the maturity to figure out how.
