“And YHV”H said to Moses, ‘Go in to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart…’” (Exudus 10:1).
Sometimes God takes away our free will.
Rabbi Yehuda opened the discussion, saying: “Happy is the people that know the joyful note; they shall walk, YHV”H, in the light of Your countenance” (Tehilim 89:16). How much should people walk in the ways of the Holy One, blessed be He, and observe the commandments of the Torah in order to merit the World to Come, and that they may be delivered from all Accusers above and below. For as there are Accusers in the world below, so there are Adversaries above whose functions are to ACCUSE people.
These Accusers are angels of judgment. They bring judgment so to direct us back to the right path and a means of refining us from evil we have done. Evil tries to use us to undo the fabric of creation creating destruction and chaos. man’s destructiveness is the the Evil flowing through him in thought, word and action. Evil does exist as a entity created created by God as it is written :
“I form the light, and create darkness, make peace and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.” (Isa.45:7).
So at times It has its proper place . The problem is when people let Evil into their minds by their thoughts, heart by their feelings and behavior by their actions.
Those who observe the commandments of the Torah and walk the right path in fear of their Master, good Advocates are situated above them, as is written: “If there be an angel over him, an interpreter, one among a thousand…then He is gracious to him, and says, ‘Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom’” (Job 33:23). Therefore, fortunate is he who observes the commandments of the Torah.
THIS IS REFERRING TO IN THE OTHER WORLD
Rabbi Chiya said to him: If so, why is it necessary to have an angel to intercede for the person, seeing it is written: “For YHV”H will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught” (Proverbs 3:26). “YHV”H will guard you from all evil” (Psalms 121:7). For the Holy One, blessed be He, sees everything that a man does in the world, both good and evil. And so He says, “‘Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him?’ Says YHV”H” (Jeremiah 23:24).
So many times are we saved from calamity by these angels, and don’t know. From God nothing is hidden. From us a lot is concealed, so to preserve free will.
Rabbi Yehuda said: Certainly it is so. But it is written: “And touch his bone and his flesh” (Job 2:5), and “although you did move me against him to destroy him without cause” (Ibid. 3). This shows that permission was granted to the Other Side to accuse in worldly matters, and they should be given into his hands. All these things are to stay concealed before the Holy One, blessed be He, and you have no right to investigate them, because they are the statutes of the Holy One, blessed be He. Humans are not permitted to be particular about them except for those truly Righteous who know the secrets of the Torah and go in the way of wisdom to know these hidden things in the Torah.
Why “bad things” happen is not always easy to understand.
“Now there was a day…and the Adversary came also among them”
Rabbi Elazar begins by talking about Rosh Hashanah, Judgment Day.
This is the day the Bible refers to by “In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall you have a sabbath, a day of remembrance of blowing of horns, a holy gathering.”
He says there are messengers who are appointed by God to watch over the actions of people, and at Judgment Day these messengers accuse those whose actions were improper. When people sin, they weaken ELOHE”M (manifestation of God in nature), but when they perform good actions they give might and power to Him. Rabbi Elazar speaks about “The Adversary also came among them,” and recounts the conversation between God and Satan wherein God distracts Satan from his accusation of Yisrael, by asking him if he has considered His servant Job. Satan always requests justice from God. We read that Job was judged as he had judged Yisrael, since he had been one of Pharaoh’s advisors. The Satan was given permission to afflict Job’s bones and flesh, but not to kill him. We are told that God does not want to destroy the whole world on the word of the Accuser, since the Accuser’s desire is always to destroy. The discussion turns to “The end of all flesh” which is the Satan, and “the end of days” that is in Holiness. On Rosh Hashanah those who come before God with repentance deserve to be written on the side of Life; those who come with evil actions are written on the Other Side, which is Death. We are told then of the balance, where the world is half Life and half Death, and the actions of one Righteous man or one wicked person can tip the balance so that all the world is written to Life or Death. A person should not be set apart by himself because he can be noticed and accused from above. Job, who was set apart, and who was tested severely, did not even then join the Other Side. He should, however, have given a part of his sacrifice to the Other Side because then the Other Side would have removed himself from the Temple. The conclusion of this section is that God judged Job, giving him first good and then bad and then good again; thus it is proper for a person to know good and bad, and to return himself to good.
Rabbi Elazar opened the discussion, saying: “Now there was a day when the sons of Elohim came to present themselves before God, and the Adversary came also among them” (Job 1:6). “Now there was a day,” refers to Rosh Hashanah, the day that the Holy One, blessed be He, rises to judge the world. Similarly, “And it happened one day, that he came there” (II Kings 4:11). That day was the holy day of Rosh Hashanah.
“And the sons of Elohim came.” These are the appointed ministers whose mission in the world is to observe the actions of people. “To present themselves before God,” as is written: “And all the hosts of heaven standing by Him on His right hand and on His left” (I Kings 22:19). But in the passage: “To present themselves before God,” “The Adversary also came among them.” The word “also” adds to THE CHILDREN OF ELOHIM, because they all came to accuse, and THE ADVERSARY also joined them because he was the greatest slanderer of them all. As soon as the Holy One, blessed be He, saw that they all came to accuse, immediately, “And YHV”H said to the Adversary, ‘From where do you come?’” (Job 1:7) Did not the Holy One, blessed be He, know where he came from: Rather only to allow the matter to the wishes of the Satan, MEANING THAT WITH THESE WORDS HE GAVE HIM AN OPENING TO ACCUSE AS HE WISHES.
“YHV”H said to the Adversary, ‘Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on earth…’” (Ibid. 8).
The Satan works for God being the Evil inclination in man, THE ADVERSARY, Accuser and prosecuter of the supernal court. Only with permission from God can he do anything. As we see here with Job “YHV”H said to the Adversary, ‘Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on earth…’” (Ibid. 8).
Evil is a dead thing, and possesses no life force of its own whatsoever. So don’t empower it against your self !
UPDATED April 28 2015
The Star Wars character Darth Vader is fictional; nevertheless the evil that he characterized and even more so the psychic powers he portrayed do actually have a source in fact here in the real world.
There really are “Dark Lords” amongst us. Some of the names of these people we are familiar with, others are unknown to us. Yes, very real Dark Lords do live and walk among us today. They may not speak about the Dark Side of Force. The Dark Lords of today do not advertise and do not make their identities known. More often than they conceal themselves well with almost impenetrable disguises.
In Hebrew we call this the Sitra Ahra, the Other Side. Concerning this the Ari writes that The “ enemies ” refers to Samael, his wife, Lilith. Agrat the daughter of Machalat, the lesser Lilith, Naamah, and so forth, and all their hordes.
The Biblical sorcerer Billam (Number 22-24) was one such Dark Lord. He was no man of
fiction or legend. There is archeological proof found in modern day Jordan attesting to his
existence and to his ominous reputation as mentioned in the Bible.
READ ABOUT IT HERE
Yet, the Biblical sorcerer and wizard Billam was only one of the many who came before him and after him. To this day many follow in his footsteps and master Occult powers, and use these powers. They are unseen to the eyes of the masses, they still nonetheless continue their occult practices that have been handed down for centuries.
If there was ever a real underground secret society of conspirators, it is the coven of the true Dark Lords of the Other (dark) Side.
Somebody or some group is “out there” promoting popular interest in the Occult. We see this in all the movies featuring occult themes, vampires and demons. How curious it is
that as we see a rise in the interest and practice of the Occult, we see an equal and opposite loss of interest in traditional religion and proper moral values.
It is with the loss of such traditional Biblical-based values that has opened the floodgates to an epidemic sexual promiscuity and perversions, violent behaviors of all sorts and an unusual rise in the number of mental illnesses, emotional disturbances and suicides.
Billam realized he could not work his magic to do harm to Israel. So he chose instead a devious conspiracy of sexual subversion and corruption. Once certain members of the
Children of Israel fell to sexual promiscuity could evil take a “foot hold”. This organized plot, spoken of in detail in Torah Portion Balak (Number 22-24) caused massive damage to the Israelite nation. Only then in a defiled state would they be susceptible to the evil powers. Such opens the doors to psychic attack,
We see similar moral ethical damage being promoted today throughout societies, permitting every perversion. There are forces active that seek to corrupt moral values. We see this very thing happening all around us today. This quickly growing perversion and subversion of the whole world is not a normal course of events. Things on this scale do not just happen on their own, without direction or cause. Should we therefore not wonder if there is a nefarious agent behind our modern societies corruption just like there was in Biblical times?
Are there those who are trying to morally corrupt society so to make them susceptible to the evil powers ?
Mose’s spirit lives in all those who study Torah, similarly the spirit of the evil Billam lives on in all those who embrace the Occult. This is why, like Billam before them, most modern Occultists are viciously anti-Semitic. Just like Billam hated Israel, Torah and the power of holiness that defeated his evil magic, so too do modern Occultists seek to break the back of Torah, Judaism and the Jewish people.
This may explain why with the demise of traditional religious beliefs and values in many parts of the world we see an equal rise in anti-Semitism coming out from those same contaminated communities.
We should not deny that the Occult is real and its sinister powers that the followers of the Other (dark) Side possess. They are indeed as real as its opposite, the powerful Holiness of those who cling to Torah and who live by the mystical Biblical message. We saw Moses working these powers. God has instructed us in ways and practices to keep ourselves safe from evil influences.
Heaven revealed to us through prophetic revelation the true nature and mechanics of how
the Occult operates. The commandments we received on Sinai were specifically designed to keep us safe from physic attacks and all from other forms of Occultic penetration.
Lets look at how evil works so we know what we are dealing with and how to overcome it.
Evil can never face Holiness directly, for Holiness is a great
light, and this blinds evil. This is the mystical meaning of our sages statement that “ wicked do not greet the Shechinah,” for they cannot face it directly. Rather,
they are attached to it from the back, facing the Shechinah’ back, and this is how they derive their sustenance.
From the book Marachot Eloheme we learn that the main intent in GOD’s desire to create the world was so that man should become complete and thus merit to have Ruach ha Kodesh (The spirit of Holiness) dress upon him. By this he would reach levels of prophesy, and fill the world with peace and life. This would leave the force of evil no place to rest on, so it would die. When the evil inclination dominates then the light that GOD hid for the righteous is hidden. It cannot be comprehended, but becomes hidden because of the serpent. This light is the foundation-gateway of חיים (true life). A man can come to comprehend but a little bit only after great toil. In his body there must illuminate fear before he will be given any comprehension in these matters. This is a ruling of the עץ חיים (Tree of life), also according to this the righteous are given comprehension in Garden of Eden. GOD is exacting in the judgments of this matter to the fineness of “a single hair”.
In the Zohar we are instructed to not look at the face of a wicked man because of the evil dwelling there.
The angel over the people of Asev is the ס“ם (Devil) he is the “evil inclination” and שט”ן. He was created to incite one to evil and to turn away one’s Dat (knowledge) from good, for this he was created. But in truth he does not desire the man to listen to his voice to do evil. As the angel is only obligated to do this work. If a man strengthens himself by fighting against his evil inclination and conquers it, thereby is fulfilled the purpose of his creation. This gives delight to this angel.1
1Avodat Yisrael p.10
With big avoda (Divine service) is more angels in each world as they have big war with the sitra achra (other side) and all its forces. They always want to destroy the world and do evil and destruction to Yisrael. So against these stands the Sarafim and many Holy angels to push away and nullify these evil ones. Its always a big war. They strengthen and surround the good acts of Yisrael, and they arouse above light of GOD. They draw אור זוהר (Light called Zohar) and with it burn all tuma (spiritual impurity) and evil. By tikunim (fixings) of learning Torah and doing Mitzvot there is always spreading out of the light from above to below. This light drawn down is according to the need for light and Mochin (concessness-brain) below.
The “sitra achra” tries to overpower a man all day. If he does not merit to life.
Words of Torah are as fire that consumes all filth. The “evil inclination” is also fire, but the Torah is the fire that consumes fire.1 The sitra achra can’t stand up to consuming fire, it becomes silenced and nullified to He Who formed them as a spark on the coal.2 “יהו”ה spoke to you face to face out of the midst of fire”
1Alp Bet p.172
All who sin are given over to be ruled by the “sitra achra” (other side), except those who love GOD and these are punished.
The Ar”i in lekutim teaches that the is S”M and the Nukvah of the luminous
“klippa” [shell], to whom the goat is given on Yom Kippor. The Samael and the evil Nukvah, the male and female of the evil side are called “ depths of the sea”. They are that which remains after the dross of the kings of Edom was purified called the “ shadow of death.”
Hope this helps
Guard your self from Evil
This is only the tip of the iceberg
THIS LINK HAS POWERFUL MEDICINE FOR FIGHTING EVIL
When GOD was going to destroy the 2nd Temple Rabbi Yochanon ben Zakkia went to Vaspasian the Roman Emperor and said “Let the righteous flee, and have a safe place of refuge in Yavnah”. At that time the government of Isreal was much like it is today a puppet state of western influence, and not a true Torah Nation.
A couple parsha back it said “ If you go to war in your land against an enemy who oppresses you, then you shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and you shall be remembered before Yhv”h Elohech”a, and you shall be saved from your enemies “ (Bamidbar 10:9) Meaning when evil is close we must negate it by loud spiritual service, real zeal in serving GOD. This is reflected by the action of Pinchas in our parsha. By the zealousness of his actions the judgment against us bringing death to thousands by a plague was stoped. The whole world now is threatened by Islamic extremists. We daily are facing enemies in our Holy land now, so we are required to harness this zeal. We must do our best to fight off judgment by adding more and more to Holiness each day with greater purity.
In this weeks parsha the worlds most accurate astrologer Balak, who knew the times most efficient to curse others. Worked with Billam the worlds best black magician to curse Yisrael. But things did not work at all as Balak would have liked. This time Billam could not comply with Balak’s request. As a matter of fact the great magician Billam would be put in his rightful place. As we see GOD opened the mouth of Billam’s donkey causing it to speak, in a similar way He also put words in Billam’s mouth. GOD opened the eyes of Billam’s donkey so he could see an angel holding a sword standing in the road blocking their way, which Billam could not see. This man that Balak brought to slay his enemy with his words , is shown that he can’t even kill his own donkey. As Billam said to his donkey “If a had a sword I would slay you”. So why did Billam go with Ballak who, wanted him to curse Yisrael, after GOD told Billam “ You shall not curse these people for they are blessed” ?. He went becouse of self love. His blinding arrogance and pride would not allow him to say “I can’t do it”. We should learn from this also just how dangerous arrogance, pride and self love may be. Know, despite their evil intents GOD can turn the evil intent of the wicked to a blessing for Yisreal. No matter how bad it may look. We saw this recently with The disengagement from Gaza and the destruction of the Gush Katif Jewish settlements. By this was created a pure terrorist state at Israel’s border. The Hamas takeover of Gaza fulfills Israel’s wildest dreams. The Hamas rule brands the Palestinians as terrorists, shows them incapable of statehood and hostile to Israel, and removes the peace process from the agenda. It is time the Israeli government stop supplying their sworn enemies with water, electricity and food. Let their patron state Iran build for them power plants and water desalination plants, instead of giving them weapons. Now is the time to seal the Palestinian entity off and deal with it as with enemy a state: ban Palestinian migrant workers, stop issuing any visas to Palestinians, block all shipments, and wage total war when attacked. The “black” day Balak intended for Yisrael turned to a day of blessings. Billam was forced by GOD to speak blessing which lead to messianic revelation ! May we see “ A star go forth from Yisrael” with revelation of our righteous mashiach quickly in our days.
Here is the face of EVIL
Like we have never seen before
And I hope we never see again
But the way things are going
Never know what will go down next

You never saw nothing like this
and better hope you dont

UPDATED JULY 10 2014
One is incapable of going from the slavery of a materialistic existence to that of one living according to spiritual consciousness until one is liberated from the consciousness of slaves.
Our sages teach on the verse, “The tablets were the tablets of God, and the writing was the writing of G0d, charut (graven) on the tablets.” (Ex. 32:16): Read not “charut” (graven), but “cherut”, (freedom). This reflects what the sages say that the only free man is the one who studies Torah” (Avot 6:2). Learning though is not enough Only when one comes to agree to serve God does one become free. This alone liberates one from the empty bestially nature of his animal soul which enslaves them to their lower animal desires and own selfish ego. As long as a person transgresses God’s commandments they are taking their own life, committing spiritual suicide, in the next world, this world or both.
is written, “Know therefore this day, and consider it in your heart, that the Lord is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath; there is no other.” (Deut 4) This means that there is no other force in the world that has the ability to do anything against his will
. And when a man sees, things in the world that seem to deny God’s authority, these things are His will also. And it is called a correction. This is what is described as “the left rejects and the right draws near,” meaning that which the left rejects is considered a correction. This means that there are things in the world, which, to begin with, aim to divert a person from the right way, and by which he is rejected from Holiness.
By being pushed away by God and providence that makes one’s life difficult. A person receives a need and a complete desire for the Creator to help him, since he sees that otherwise he is lost.
He comes to feel more shattered than whole. He experiences many more descents than ascents. He does not see an end to these states, and he thinks that He will forever remain outside of holiness. For he sees that it is difficult for him to observe even as little as a jot, unless by overcoming above reason. But he is not always able to overcome. And what shall be the end?
Then he comes to the decision that no one can help him but the Creator Himself. This causes him to make a heartfelt demand that the Creator will open his eyes and heart, and truly bring him nearer to eternal cleaving with God. It thus follows, that all the rejections he had experienced had come from the Creator.
This means that it was not because he was at fault, that he did not have the ability to overcome his evil desires or lack of enthusiasm in his Divine service. These people I am talking about truly want to draw near the Creator. They will not settle for little, meaning remain as senseless children, They are therefore given help from Above.
Only if that person has a true desire will they receive help from Above. He is constantly shown how he is at fault in his present state spiritually. Namely, he is sent thoughts and views to be able to truly access his position “spiritual”, his state of development in truth. This is in order for him to see that he is not one with the God. And what he needs to overcome.
A man must always try to cleave to the Creator. Namely, that all his thoughts will be about Him. That is to say, that even if he is in the worst state, from which there cannot be a greater decline, he should not leave his pursuit of Holiness. And he should never imagine that there is another authority which prevents him from entering holiness, and which can bring benefit or harm, God Forbid. Remember that is is written :
“Know therefore this day, and consider it in your heart, that the Lord is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath; there is no other.” (Deut 4)
That is, he must not think that this is the force of the Sitra Achra (Other Side) acting alone against him. That it will not allow a them to do good deeds and follow God’s ways. Rather, all is done by the Creator. This is no other force that can oppose him.
The Baal Shem Tov said that he who says that there is another force controlling things in the world, namely Klipot (shells), that person is in a state of “serving other gods.” As ultimately all is controlled by God.
If he thinks that there is another authority and force apart from the Creator, by that he is committing a sin.
“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. And the Lord said to Satan, Where are you coming from? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.. And the Lord said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God, and turns away from evil? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Does Job fear God for nothing?” (Job Chapter 1)
There is only one God and He controls EVERYTHING ultimately
One should be remorseful and say: “I committed that sin because the Creator hurled me down from holiness to a place of filth, to the lavatory, the place of filth.” That is to say that the Creator gave him a desire and craving to amuse himself and breath air in a place of stench.
In a certain sense it is the God who gave him the desire for these things. To go to the lowly places. He could have refused the desire and passed his test. One receives a desire and craving to take pleasure from things they had already determined were improper, but now he wants to receive benefit from them. Even if he knows better his personality requires refinement so that he can make the right choices.
It is like if his wife has sent a harlot to test his fidelity, to see how he will act.
One should be careful never to leave the domain of Holiness, and say that there is another who operates besides the Creator.
By recognizing a 2nd authority as God, which truly is not. You invite its influence into your life.
Sometimes one actually comes into this world incarnated as a pig, as they acted like this in their previous life.
The matter of being favored by the Creator, or the opposite, does not depend on the person himself, but only on the Creator. And man, with his external mind, cannot comprehend why now the Lord has favored him and afterwards did not.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
“His ways are always strong; your judgments are far above, out of his sight”
Anything that exists in a person except for the will to receive does not belong to the creature, but is attributed to the Creator, but the will to receive pleasure should be corrected to being in order to bestow.
The God created the world so that he could give to the creation. We need to work so that in our lives we emulate this Divine quality of the “desire to give”.
It is known with regard to the Light of God itself, that there is to it no change, as it is written, “I the Lord change not.” All the names and appellations are the vessels of this light. It which is according to these that the light becomes differentiated to different aspects. The will to receive is included in “Malchut” (the active kingship of heaven as is it manifests here below in this world)—the root of creation. hangs down to this world, to the creatures.
The Divine Presence hangs down to this world, it does not change. The question is what will you do with it. Will you take its power, motivation and dress it in evil. Or will you do good and reveal God in the world.
The general Tikkun (correction) is so the Upper Light will shine in them and the world, ultimately in utter completeness. So don’t block it by being stupid. The vessels are generally named “Shechinah” (Divine Presence) .
Before the Light shines in them in utter completeness according to the correctness of their actions, we call that time, “A Time of Corrections.” This means that we make corrections in our actions, speech, emotions and thoughts so that the Light will shine in them in completeness. Until then, that state is called “Divinity in Exile.”
Your heart should be a Tabernacle for the Light of God, not a place
of waste and filth.
In other words when that which God hates captures the whole of the heart.
This is called “Divinity in the dust.” It means that it has been lowered to the ground, and each and every one loathes matters of holiness, and they have no desire whatsoever to raise it from the dust. Instead, they choose disgusting things, and this brings on sorrow to and of the “Shechinah” (Divine Presence). This is what happens when one does not make their heart a Tabernacle for the Light of God.
To be continued………………………………………………………………………..
One must avoid desception , there are those who teach :
A prophecy of Maitreya is in the Sanskrit text, the Maitreyavyākaraṇa (The Prophecy of Maitreya), stating that gods, men, and other beings will worship Maitreya; it implies that he is a teacher of meditative sadhana:
Only worship GOD the creator alone !
Maitreya (Sanskrit) is a future Buddha of this world in Buddhist eschatology. In some Buddhist literature, such as the Amitabha Sutra and the Lotus Sutra, he is referred to as Ajita Bodhisattva.
Maitreya is a bodhisattva who in the Buddhist tradition is to appear on Earth, achieve complete enlightenment, and teach the pure dharma. According to scriptures, Maitreya will be a successor of the historic Śākyamuni Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. The prophecy of the arrival of Maitreya is found in the canonical literature of all Buddhist sects (Theravāda, Mahāyāna, Vajrayāna) and is accepted by most Buddhists as a statement about an actual event that will take place in the distant future.
One mention of the prophecy of Maitreya is in the Sanskrit text, the Maitreyavyākaraṇa (The Prophecy of Maitreya), stating that gods, men, and other beings will worship Maitreya; it implies that he is a teacher of meditative sadhana:
“will lose their doubts, and the torrents of their cravings will be cut off: free from all misery they will manage to cross the ocean of becoming; and, as a result of Maitreya’s teachings, they will lead a holy life. No longer will they regard anything as their own, they will have no possession, no gold or silver, no home, no relatives! But they will lead the holy life of chastity under Maitreya’s guidance. They will have torn the net of the passions, they will manage to enter into trances, and theirs will be an abundance of joy and happiness, for they will lead a holy life under Maitreya’s guidance.” (Trans. in Conze 1959:241)
Maitreya currently resides in the Tuṣita Heaven (Pāli: Tusita), said to be reachable through meditation. Śākyamuni Buddha also lived here before he was born into the world as all bodhisattvas live in the Tuṣita Heaven before they descend to the human realm to become Buddhas. Although all bodhisattvas are destined to become Buddhas, the concept of a bodhisattva differs slightly in Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism. In Theravada Buddhism, a bodhisattva is one who is only destined to one day become a Buddha, whereas in Mahayana Buddhism, a bodhisattva is one who has already reached a very advanced state of grace or enlightenment but holds back from entering nirvana so that he may help others.
Once Maitreya becomes a Buddha, he will rule over the Ketumati Pure Land, an earthly paradise sometimes associated with the Indian city of Varanasi (also known as Benares) in Uttar Pradesh. (All Buddhas preside over a Pure Land; the Buddha Amitabha presides over the Sukhavati Pure Land, more popularly known as the Western Paradise.)
There are those who believe :
Although the names are different, many believe that they all refer to the same individual: the World Teacher, whose personal name is Maitreya (pronounced my-tray-ah).
Preferring to be known simply as the Teacher, Maitreya has not come as a religious leader, or to found a new religion, but as a teacher and guide for people of every religion and those of no religion.
At this time of great political, economic and social crisis Maitreya will inspire humanity to see itself as one family, and create a civilization based on sharing, economic and social justice, and global cooperation.
He will launch a call to action to save the millions of people who starve to death every year in a world of plenty. Among Maitreya’s recommendations will be a shift in social priorities so that adequate food, housing, clothing, education, and medical care become universal rights.
Under Maitreya’s inspiration, humanity itself will make the required changes and create a saner and more just world for all.
A man named Benjamin Creme, a British artist and longtime student of esoteric
philosophy (his words), is promoting a self-proclaimed world
teacher named Maitreya, who says he is not only Jesus
Christ, but the Jewish Messiah, the Hindu Krishna, the
Buddhist Maitreya Buddha and the Muslim Imam Mahdi all
rolled into one. This man is even being promoted by the
UN. He performs miracles, and is reported to have healed
people and animals. He says he is responsible for the fall
of communism in the Soviet Union, the fall of apartheid in
South Africa, the rapprochement (harmonious comingtogether
– which is a whole new description of espionage)
between East and West, the growing power of the people’s
voice (I haven’t noticed that one.), and a worldwide focus
on preserving the environment (That one I have noticed.).
He even claims credit for statues that appear to be crying crystal tears. Mr. Creme says he receives instructions from Maitreya through telepathy.. according to Crème Maitreya says his body of manifestation was totally complete, that he had “donned” it, and this body of light – his ascended body – was now at rest in his mountain center in the Himalayas.
The Buddha Maitreya has an etheric retreat of in the Himalayas, where he invites students to come on wings of harmony to receive higher initiations. In a large chapel of white marble, the flame of purity blazes and a large figure of Kuan Yin rests upon the altar, attended by “cosmic monks.” Students who come to Maitreya’s retreat receive ancient mystery school training through the illumination of the Christ and the strength of the Word for the mastery of the sacred fire. They may be given the initiations of the Buddha and are expected to express loving kindness in their interactions with one another.
There is this story of a buddist master in search of Maitreya . Asanga in pursuit of unmistaken understanding of the Perfection of Wisdom sutras decided that only from Maitreya could he receive the instructions he needed. He therefore entered into intensive retreat in hopes of gaining a direct vision of this Buddha.
After three years of intensive meditation in a cave in the Himalayas with no success he quit this retreat. On his way back home he saw an old man trying to remove a huge stone by brushing it with a feather. Asanga took this as a sign that with enthusiastic perseverance, anything could be accomplished, so he reentered his retreat. More years passed, without results. But each time Asanga gave up he would encounter someone doing an impossible task, and thus he would be re inspired again. But after 12 years with no results, Asanga gave up his practice for good. This time on his way home, he saw a starving dog on the ground, its wounds being eaten by maggots. Moved by compassion for the dog and maggots, he cut off a piece of his own flesh and bent down to transfer the maggots to the meat with his tongue so he would not hurt the maggots. He closed his eyes, but although he leaned over very far, he felt nothing. When he opened his eyes to see what was wrong, the dog had disappeared and in its place stood Maitreya in all his glory.
Holyness does not choose to reveal itself from a rotting dogs flesh full of maggots.
Maitreya must be another name for
Aza and AzaEl. these two Holy One cast down from heaven. They chased after women and caused people to err. It is written concerning Angels, “He makes Ruchot-Spirits His Angel-Messengers” (Psalms 104:4), these two were angels. How then were they able to exist on the earthly plane? Rather, none of the supernal angels can exist without receiving their life-force through the supernal radiance. If this radiance is withheld from them, they cannot exist. This is all the more so true of these two whom the Holy One cast down and thereby cut off from His supernal radiance. Their own radiance changed, and when they descended, the atmosphere of this world overcame them, and they underwent a drastic change in levels. When they descended to this world, the atmosphere of this world enveloped and overwhelmed them, and they changed from their previous level. The Holy One do saw that they were leading people astray. He bound them with metal chains in the mountains of darkness… People who found out where they were would go to them, and they would teach these people the occult arts. The Torah calls these mountains of darkness Harerei Kedem (Ancient Mountains of the East, based on the double meaning of Kedem, “east” and “ancient”), as the verse states, “Balak, king of Moab, has brought me from Aram, from the Ancient Mountains of the East, [telling me] to come curse Jacob and conjure divine wrath against Israel” (Bamidbar 23:7). Bilaam took after Lavan in being a master-magician he learned the occult arts from these fallen angels. This is why Bilaam said about himself, “It is the word of one who hears G-d’s sayings, who sees a vision of the Almighty” (Bamidbar 24:4). For Aza and AzaEl had taught him G-d’s secret sayings that they had heard when they were still in heaven. This is why it says, “hears G-d’s sayings,” and not “hears G-d’s voice,” i.e. the sayings he had heard from Aza and AzaEl. He also said, “It is the word of the one who hears G-d’s sayings and knows the will of the Most High” (ibid. 24:16). From Aza and AzaEl he learned how to divine the most auspicious times to perform his art. He continued saying, “Who sees a vision of the Almighty while fallen [in a meditative trance] with mystical insight”
Who are the ones who see a vision of the Almighty? “Nofel [Fallen] and Galuy Eynayim [Mystical Insight],” i.e. Aza and AzaEl. Aza is called “Nofel” because besides being cast down from heaven once, the Holy One forced him further down into the depths of darkness. AzaEl is called “Galuy Eynayim” because he didn’t anger the Holy One as much as Aza. Bilaam used to go to the Ancient Mountains of the East each day. This is why he said, “Balak… has brought me… from the Ancient Mountains of the East…”
Bilaam was the Pharoe of Egypts greatest magician and council. When Israel left Egypt, Bilaam realized that all the spells and incantations he had pronounced on Israel had been brought to naught. He began to tear out his hair. He went to the Mountains of Darkness, to the place where Aza and AzaEl were bound in chains of iron.
What does a person do when he goes to these mountains? When he arrives there, AzaEl sees him and informs Aza. They both give forth a call, summoning many poisonous snakes to gather round. They also send forth a kind of cat with the head of a snake, tiny paws, and two tails. The person has to have a container of ashes, the remains of a white rooster. He casts the ashes in the face of the cat, and the cat then accompanies him further, until they arrive at the place where the iron chains are wedged in the ground. He then descends down to the abyss, where there is a kind of pin wedged in the deepest abyss. It is to this pin that the iron chains are secured. When this person arrives there, he strikes the pin three times, at which point Aza and AzaEl call him. He then bows down on his knees, closes his eyes and crawls forward. He then sits down in front of them, whereupon all the snakes surround him on all sides. He opens his eyes and sees them. He trembles and quivers and falls on his face. He bows towards them. They then teach him the black arts. He stays with them for three days. When the time comes to take leave, the cat, along with all the snakes, take off in front of him, until he exits those Mountains of Darkness.
All this to was to no Avail the Holy One had ruined all the wisdom and magic in the world, and they were prevented from harming them.
In the end all the Evil will come to naught. There are many paths of the God , but this being is not it.
“And the YHV”H shall be king over all the earth; on that day the Lord shall be one, and his name one.” (Zecahria 14)
The majority still does not want to see the proverbial “writing on the wall” Clouds of doom and gloom are gathering on all sides.
To say that we live in troubled times is becoming more
and more of an understatement by the day. We are living in dangerous and hard times. Most desperately want to ignore the danger signs, and pretend business as “usual”. When this is obviously not the case. They refuse to have eyes but refuse to see?, the warnings fall to deaf ears. People are too hard-headed and hard-hearted. Needless to say, the way things are going by the time they wake up, it will be too late.
Many religious may say where is your faith in GOD ? Dont you “believe” in God, all will be well. True “faith” really is demonstrated in how one practically and honesty implements thoughts speech and actions that are appropriate according to Divine will in one’s life. Faith in GOD is often interpreted to mean whatever happens, be it for good or bad; that this is the Will of God. They say if
GOD had wanted it differently, then things would have occurred differently. This type of mentality
does not express faith but foolishness.
Misguided faith is an absolute recipe for death.
Real faith inspires animates real action. Real faith has nothing to do with how ethnically or culturally religious you are. “faith” is a power of the soul that can be described as “Divine creative inspiration”. Real faith sends you to take every single practical, rational step to protect and support yourself, to deal with the situation. Whatever self sacrifice it may take take. Beyond this is where true faith begins. GOD will take you beyond your limits. This and only this is the “ultimate” power of faith!
One cannot expect some spiritual magic to suddenly change real life here on Earth. Such beliefs are not faith, they are foolishness. Ultimately, the Spiritual Law states, “no Light comes down before Light first goes up.” This is telling us we must stand up for what is right and make a stand against “evil”. Real Light in the physical world is the actions we take and the things we do. There are many spiritual worlds the lowest, the one our bodies inhabit is called “the world of action”. Our deeds are the Light. Our righteous behavior in doing the right things is the Ascending Light that motivates spiritual movement and blessing to descend from Heaven. They are the source of general and personal providence.
“The righteous will live by their faith.”.
Their behaviors are “inspired” by the power of their faith.
A Evil spirit of Nazi-like hatred is spreading around the world like an unstoppable virus, murdering spiritual awareness of countless souls. This evil zombie-like infection is a hatred of all Bible believing Christians, Jews and anyone else associated with traditional religion or who stands up for traditional Biblical values. People of religion and their values are today under serious attack. The proper expressions of their faith therefore requires of them to take the proper steps to safeguard their lives and everything that they hold dear. Those so possessed by this illness of evil cannot be bargained with or reasoned with any more than the Nazis of old Germany. This is the rise of “modern secularism”. Like in old Germany many were fooled into embracing it. Evil is alive and present amongst us.
We cannot stick our heads in the sand and refuse to look at the problems facing us. This is precisely what got some many killed during the Holocaust. People of faith should never hide behind their religion and just proclaim that GOD will keep them safe. In the Bible the prophet Zechariah states:
” All the nations of the earth will gather about Jerusalem. ” (12:3)
” On that day I will destroy all the nations that come upon Jerusalem “. (12:3)
The Prophets taught us that all the good in the Bible will come to pass but all the “bad things” , need not be, and can be avoided. Let us avoid this bloodshed, as it looks very well possible that President Obama and other leaders are trying to bring this to pass. People need to stand up and do something about all the problems we are talking about.
GOD will help us when we help ourselves. We have to do our share for GOD to do His. This is the secret of Descending and Ascending Light. Strive to be men, and not politically correct idiots or sheep.
go do it Now !
