Isn’t time Christianity remove benches from church?

Dear Human! not only Christians

but for that part maybe more targeted for Christians.

Isn’t time we remove benches from the church?

before jumping to conclusion and start judging me! Christianity is facing nowadays a snob-ism, chaotic, confused era, due to other religious practice revealed and i’m not speaking only about Islam way of praying on the floor

How do Buddhist pray? Yogi’s , taoist, Sikh, Islam, Hindus, even early Christians and mystics

On the floor, on the ground!

and allow me , i’m not speaking from a shallow point of imitation.

but being on the ground, sitting down, being in groups in this  hour on Sunday can help us maybe 10-20% to regain humbleness, modesty, feeling the presence of god, ..humility is needed.

As in most or my articles i never generalize over all believers , religious or targeted group.

I as a seeker, who was raised Christian, still feel an enormous respect to Jesus him self, more than the system of the church.

what makes us so different, that we have to pray in that 1 hour, sitting on benches, coming with our fancy clothes, ladies holding their purses, women wearing all kind of odd clothing, men wearing cravats, hair gel, sun glasses raised above the head.??

I am not here to judge, but when i decided to not hear that same phrase” do not care “,”and simply pray” , i was asking my self what is the reason of people looking right and left, up and down, back and fourth, checking their watches?

because you cant sit in the middle of a  chaos and eye capturing stuff and say YOU must pray!

Once we enter the church, does the holy spirit with all god consciousness jumps on us and raise us to samadhi or the seventh heaven? are we elite and special? NO

I raise this question and demand to reformist POPE FRANCIS. you are trying to do many things, that seems more important such as the behavior of some priests, and you have addressed the ego of some priests and have invited them once again  to be among the needed , and i don’t mean only the hungry people! Our soul can be hungry too

Where did Jesus use to pray? i ask you POPE FRANCIS with love… you know well in nature!

under the trees, kneeling, siting, gathering!

i don’t want that answer that “there are groups that belong to all kind of saints that practice and learn while being joined humbled on the floor”, i know that.

but when we regain humility to sit on the floor, take of our shoes, high heels, fancy wearing, sit on the floor, kneel, as all the mystics did, and as Jesus him self.

Please no Preaches  to me that i have a conspiracy to clone Islam way of praying.

PS : i applaud them for that!

but it’s way before Judaism and many traditions 5 to 10 000 years old.

where did Jesus invite us to pray , isn’t in our room with one unique prayer “our father who art in heaven..?”

_the whole ritual of Christians must change, and now no one talks to me about faith and what matter is inside only , NO.

we are a body! we are a mind and we are a soul.

sure we are spiritual being having a momentary body, but we carry it right?

sitting on these fancy benches as we’re in a movie theater , wow that’s a great deal in praying and concentrating enough

do you dare Dear POPE Francis. to go back to the roots of Jesus method?

kneel, sit, wear humble and loose clothing,

change please all unwanted traditions that are spoken in oriental church when they speak “other than oriental” and change please all “intellectual” sophisticated mumbling.and these 40 unwanted minuted where people are praying for TIME TO PASS BY FASTER.

it’s not reading a magical spell. we shouldn’t be afraid as these are taboo

the body when it sits on the floor, it gain it’s normal position, it’s resting position, our hormones and harmony gaining back their original state, ,, btw who created our body? isn’t god…?

Till when we have to stay sophisticated? until all churches closes in Europe?

focusing on Africa to feed the hungry to convert them cannot lost long, once they get a full stomach and can work them selves they will drop again the Christian way of praying

we do not have a daily system of prayng. we need a real ritual, enough of this freelance style of praying

sure we can speak to god through our selves the way we want.

but being too much in the clouds, waiting until the mass finish so the families go have launch and gather is not the solution.

and what a scene in the palm Sunday, all Christians outside the church having a fashion display , picturing millions of pics with the smart phones.

enough is enough

Pope Francis i ask you again, and if you agree to meet me, to make a real reform in the church.

the results are not great!

i am no one. i applaud your courage and humility, but you must flip the table as Jesus flipped it .

enough of 70 000 saints, pictures, stuff, fancy chairs.

all can start inside the church, no problem, on the floor, “closer to the heart rituals, holding hands, closing our eyes

changing few subjects of the repetitive paragraphs, the lost son, Jesus healed this healed that.

while i see churches closing, i see Buddhist, yogis, Islam all of them rising, new atheism also.

i don’t want anyone to think from my article that i am more right than other religions

i am not in favor for something against something, but i cannot watch something supposed to be holy ….to collapse, just cause of our blindness took over.

Our egoic self , our fights among the choir  groups :”who wants to sing more and in front for ex”,  another example is amount of church paid concerts for priest to brag about their music, i ve seen much

i live in Lebanon where oriental church are in their apogee of ego and selfishness

again not generalizing.

do it POPE Francis. let us sit as JESUS sat on the floor.

or we’re above him??….

 

Music And God

Music since early ages, has been used consciously or unconsciously to relate to God or whatever name you want to call “the deity, the source, the omnipresent”

If you notice all religions whether organized or not use chanting, humming to prepare your body and mind to connect with the unknown.

Can you conceive going into church without hearing any melodic prayer, or to a mosque without hearing  a melodic vocal tune? Same with buddhist famous “OM” chanting. And literally all others too.

So what is that amazing link, is music and melody the link to GOD?

In fact science has proven that any sound with a tune or specific vibration can alternate your  body and brain chemistry within minutes and even seconds.

Much faster than reciting words.

God is mystery residing in tunes.

Most famous composers and some individuals knows that!

Think again how melody and music is bonding you to God, then the question will arise…  Is god Music? 

All i know is that i feel his presence deeply through music.

Musical divine blessings to everyone.

KILLING IN THE NAME OF GOD. 

Through early ages of humanity, the beginning of realization that there must be a Creator :”GOD, THE SOURCE, THE ONE, JESUS, ALLAH..”

Wars have been declared from humans , against each other.

What a fantasy,thriller and horror movie.

U little small damn spec of a tiny dust living in an endless oceans of galaxies….

You are defending god??

You are killing in his name?

You are protecting him??

Such an imaginable source, being or creator of multi-universes , needs your help?

So u can defend him on a tiny planet called earth and seduce god by forcing your books teachings upon other human!!!

You’re defending god from a tiny geographical point as Palestine,Saudi,Iran,USA,Russia,china..

These ultra-microscopic points in the endless ocean of the galaxies , do u consider them the center of god’s attention??

Too bad humans lost perception and clarity of their mental,psychological and physical size in the midst of an unknown mystery.

U have a life span of 80 years ,but u loose it all or half of it, forcing your stupid weird ideas   upon your same specie “the human”.

If you won’t wake up,no one will care about your loss. but stop your bullshit cause some wants to live in peace, they want to LIVE.

Your false so called teachers,some of priests, some of sheiks,imams,teachers are poor guys like you and me, but with an envy of possession and blind , idiotic belief that he is elite.

Yes elite,big,important,holy…in an earth spinning in a galaxy around a sun,and that galaxy spinning among others, others,others,

You can’t imagine even your creator.

  1. You want to see him?
  2. Start by your self,shut your mind,mouth and cut your own hands before hurting another human.

Look at the animals who know their boundaries and never conquer other territories and lands occupied by other similar species.

Look at the variety of thousands plants,trees and flowers living with each other and growing.

Your own mind is the evil.

Your ignorance is your mortality

Oh foolish mortal..

Leave god alone, god doesn’t need your protection or conquests.

God created you and the whole universe.

One day will come where he will knock the earth down,

It’s turning to be a   cancerous cell in his body!!!….

Wake up, wake up….

who are the news robots ?

In 2016,17  especially since 2010 ,

I’m not sure if the coming robots are the real danger or the humans of 2016 are the new robots?

Articles and facts about artificial intelligence are true, and things are evolving fast. But the one who is evolving backwards, seem to be the human .

(Not generalizing but in most society the phenomena of the Dull-human is already there)

When i sit with lot of people from different familes, education, religion..

The sparkle of life seems to have disapeared…why???.

Look at their activites, heads pointing towards their smart phones,

Besides having no meaningful activites, same behaviour.

“Hello, what’s up, what is your work..how are u doing, “oh sorry whatsapp, got to answer fb, and the person facing him take advantage to recuparate the lost mysteries of facebook newsfeed.

….

People bumping into each other, unconscious ,,seems that the only world available to them is their phone…

How many of us can discuss religions, science, life, love, behave naturally, freeing our hands from holding that smart phone.
So at the end i’m wondering;  is there a chance where  coming robots will be more participating, explanatory, sharing and have 100 000 option of  topics to discuss about?

We are social animals, without communication one to one..group to group or one to group..the life of a human is the  robotic..one.!!

Yes..a sinister future projection..not very far….

We got caught in the “web”…  soon physically…

Alarm..alarm!!!….3…2..1…. !

WHY AM I / Sunday , august 21, 2016

Why am I

It s raining out there in my loved but disappointing country..
Although I belong to that planet..Not my borders..

Suddenly a question arise to my soul:
WHY AM I?…

Why am “I”..What s the purpose of being,
It s a journey ..we sure know that…it comes to an end…
They say it s the beginning of a soul journey..
If only someone came back and showed us…

It s a road where we must seek inside and outside..
Nothing is sure..yet all Is.
Fly away from your brain..Embrace the whole existence…
The light will eventually show…

With love from Jad..

One Last Hope

One Last Hope

Our Journey Starts magnificently with 9 months of Love,

All is there, nothing is needed, all the books in the world cannot describe that Heaven surrounding us

Suddenly this Being sees the Light, and the journey begins. Voices, shadows, Sounds, Even suffering..

“What happened, I was in peace, I didn’t need anything, I was embraced…”Slowly the child grows, into a young man or women and start questioning his existence…

Life doesn’t make sense anymore, I recognized my biological parents, but everybody is leaving…

Is there a Hope??

What’s going on, who am I, where am I going, why the nature and the universe seems harmonious except Me?

They told me there is something far greater than my original heaven, I will wait for that day, and yes I believe in that “Last Hope”

It’s Not beyond time, it’s Here and Now!
With Love

The Rise Of meditation, yogis & Buddhist

Dear all,

Friends and followers,

In an era and age, where chaos is the leading word! Established religions as Islam and Christianity are trying to rival again to gather more people.

(Unfortunately yeah, acting both  as parties having elections!)

It seems both have conflicts within them selves, even though predominately Islam has more challenges to prove to the world that it’s not a religion of terrorism,

The wise among the sects are the one who should find a way to stop Isis!

Christianity is probably still stable “in numbers” and  growing or trying to re form with the new pope.

there is 2 fundamentals question rising in these 2 majors religions.

what are they teaching on the level of the individual? seems to me, numbers, politics, countries, repartition of social worldly stuff are taking advantage on spiritual seeking.

I’m not generalizing, i agree there are many people , priests, cheikh’s teaching peace, love, and compassion

but that’s the problem.  WE TEACH! WE SPEAK!

how do we expect a mind in 2015-2016 to listen when the fast past of life has become 20 times faster than older generation, who can listen nowadays!!??

On the other hand, we are seeing a rise, in meditation, in that spreading word, that use to be scary for most, and also the word “yoga”, “Zen”,”Buddhism” are not negative anymore.

Let me try to elaborate little bit more.

these religion/philosophies, i call them philosophies too because they are inclusive!, they don’t teach you “become with us, or you’re doomed to hell”

that’s a plus for them nowadays!, they don’t have rules for race, colors, and cultures.

they focus on the individual how to grow in spirituality, “spirituality is not a woo-woo word”

every religion started basically by spirituality , isn’t the goal of every Christian to become close to god and more spiritual? for Islam too?

My simple question is :

An hour on Sunday, is it enough to make us close to god or inner peace?

We’re ending up talking about Christian-politics all day on TV!

Is preaching in mosques and unfortunately lot of them about killing Jews and infidels  or others, defensiveness, cause lot of them feel targeted, i do understand that, (again i’m not generalizing, but it’s very common in the middle east)

so in what way we are expecting to advance??

Buddhism, yoga, Zen, and some other eastern traditions, they get along as well, and they know that the source is one!

some call it tao, some nirvana, some samadhi, whatever.

they teach about finding your own way, and now here is their best point!

THEY TEACH {{HOW!!! TO PRACTICE!!!}}

they invite persons on HOW to take care of the body HOW to breath HOW to control emotions HOW to reach a higher state, daily practices , and I’m not talking about their god or deity devotion, it’s their right, but even their deity are not mandatory as an exam to pass hell or heaven!

the human being of 2015-2016 requires peace, aloneness, knowing what love is, re gaining his nature, his essence in being spiritual.

Christian mystics if joined on one table with Buddhist and Zen they would agree 100% , as St Therese of Avilla, St john of the cross, St Francis.

Or in Early sufism as Abd al-Qadr al-Jilani ,Ahmed al-Rifa’i, others..

Sufism also would agree 100%

but The political-religious parties, and their surface shallow talk about Islamic and Christianity teaching will lead nowhere, and let’s look around us!!

more wars, more quarrels, more conflicts!!!

For the one who consider meditation or other eastern philosophies scary! Search  in your own religion, in your mystics, find the true meaning.

YOU CANNOT FIND GOD IN THE MASS ALONE. god is inside, he/she is not separate from YOU.

look at the shared common ground in between all religion and practices

It’s the practice of silence!! and seeking inwardly! or letting go!

keep doing it!

Don’t get caught up in religion elections, and which numbers of what sect will get more votes!

The eastern were there, before us, and they are coming back, not by force, but by simple facts! and tools!

Whoever you are, whatever you do, whatever your belief is,

get silent daily for couple of min, dig into your roots of religions

even atheist have common ground in silence and accepting.

Peace and love
