The Dangers of Not Forgiving: The Wisdom of Hidden Christian Teachings

‘If a person doesn’t completely forgive someone for a perceived transgression, they cannot fully appreciate or truly enjoy their present life situation. Once they have chosen to hold on these stories, they unconsciously keep the negative charges associated with their painful past alive (Jerry Alan: The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism).

Introduction

I’m madly in love with Jerry Alan’s book, The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism (Vol. 1). The book provides many hidden Christian teachings that are never taught in the modern church. It enlightens readers about divine healing, divine energy, the body of light, churchianity, spiritual dimensions, the Apocrypha, and many other intriguing spiritual teachings.

I loved all the book’s teachings; however, I loved the teachings about forgiveness the most since they made me strive to forgive whoever hurt me.

Jerry Alan’s Teachings

According to Jerry, it’s impossible to fully enjoy the present moment if you don’t forgive because failing to forgive results in you holding on to hurtful stories which attract negative thoughts that ‘haunt your heart and mind.’

Moreover, the lack of forgiveness leads to the development of ‘survival-based thought-form patterns’ that eventually develop into suppressed painful memories. These memories grow when you face bad experiences and erupt violently when triggered.

Besides this, the failure to forgive results in negative energy fields that can have various negative effects on you, and you might ‘become embittered and stuck in a chronic grieving angry energetic feedback loop, which is usually very difficult to break free from (Jerry Alan: The Hidden Teachings of Christian Mysticism).

Discussions & Conclusions

Jerry Alan’s teachings on forgiveness changed my thoughts on forgiveness. In the article, Forgiveness is Overrated; I wrote that it’s okay to not forgive. However, I now know that it’s not okay to not forgive because an unforgiving heart results in negativity and makes peace of mind impossible.

As well, if you don’t forgive, you’ll never stop thinking about the person who hurt you and how he hurt you. You’ll then become vulnerable to hatred, competition, and envy. You’ll drown into egoic consciousness, and it will be hard for you to achieve peak experiences or rise into higher states of consciousness that are necessary for creativity and intuitive intelligence.

For this reason, we must embrace Jerry Alan’s teachings by striving to forgive those who hurt us. We can use forgiving meditation practices to overcome painful memories and embrace forgiveness. By doing so, it will be easier for us to achieve a clear and peaceful state of mind, which usually paves the way to peak experiences or higher states of consciousness.

Four Theories That Answer the Biggest Question Ever Asked: Why Are We Here?

Published

on

Is there a purpose for life?

Mainstream scientists believe life is an accident and has no purpose. I once trusted them, but after thinking deeply about life for a while, I realized that everything has a purpose and therefore, there is a reason why we are here. Moreover, I realized that people who believe life has a purpose are happier than those who believe life is purposeless.

I then contemplated the reason for our existence, and I discovered four major theories that explain why we are here.

  • Theory 1 – We Are Here to Grow into Our Full Potential

All plants and animals are designed to grow into their full potential. Lions are designed to grow into strong creatures, fish are designed to grow fins that enable them to swim with ease, and plants are designed to grow and produce leaves, flowers, fruits, or thorns. For this reason, it’s arguable that we were also created to reach our full potential, which I believe is to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually.

This is the only purpose every life has. It wants to grow to its full potential. – Sadhguru, Indian Mystic

  • Theory 2 – We Are Infinite Intelligence/God Experiencing Itself in a Physical Form

Many ancient religions believed Infinite Intelligence’s desire to experience itself in a physical form forced it to transform itself into the physical world. It transformed itself into all living things to experience its powers on the physical plane. We are thus Infinite Intelligence/God in its physical form, and we are here to help it discover its limits in the physical world.

“Is it not written in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods?” – Jesus, Christian Teacher

  • Theory 3 – We Came Here For Spiritual Training

According to some individuals, we are spiritual entities that decided to descend to the physical plane for spiritual training. These folks claim that the universe uses hardships for the spiritual training. Also, they claim that we’ll reincarnate and continue our spiritual training if we don’t attain spiritual maturity in our current life form.

  • Theory 4 – We Came Here To Take Care of Creation

Many religions believe we came here to take care of God’s creation. They believe our primary duty is to protect the world’s natural beauty and ensure ecological balance by controlling the population of plants and animals.

I’m against this theory because nature blossoms without us, and we are responsible for the extinction of several plants and animals.

In Conclusion

We must strive to know the purpose of our existence so that we align our lives with it. I firmly believe that most of us are living unfulfilled lives because we are not aligned with life’s purpose. Maybe we might live a happier and fulfilling life if we know our purpose and align our thoughts and actions with it.

Anyway, besides these theories, I believe there are many other theories for our existence that you can mention in the comment box below.

6 Amazing Prayers to Use Daily

6 Amazing Prayers to Use Daily

Although action is bigger than prayer, prayer is also useful as it strengthens our connection to our spirit-self and reminds us about the Higher Power that controls the world. Besides, it enables us to reach higher states of consciousness since it leads to peace of mind.

My research on ancient folks enlightened me that these folks were highly intuitive, and they managed to contact the spirit world because they prayed several times a day. They prayed in the morning and evening. They prayed when they saw the sun, the moon, and stars, and they prayed to everything, including birds, stones, and cats.

This prayerful life elevated them to their higher-self hence enabling them to communicate with the dead, see into the future, and perform miracles.

To attain such effects of prayer, I also decided to pray several times a day. For this reason, I formulated six prayers – based on ancient symbolism – which I use daily.

1.Prayer while eating

Oh Infinite Intelligence/God, thank you for the food before me. I call upon you to eliminate all negative energies from this food, and I ask you to purify it with your radiant light so that it provides for the needs of my body. Bless the hungry and allow them to receive the spiritual benefits of this meal.

2.Prayer for The Past, the Future, and the Present

Oh Infinite Intelligence, I bless the past and I let go of it. I bless my future, knowing that it has good things in store for me. I call upon you to open my divine eyes so that I see the infinite opportunities and blessings in this present moment.

3.Prayer While Bathing

Oh Water, the greatest gift from Infinite Intelligence, I (your name) ask you to wash away all the negative emotions, feelings, and thoughts within me, and may your healing power heal all the ailments within me.

4.Prayer During Sunrise

Oh Sun, thank you for reminding me about God’s divine light and holy fire (heat). During your presence, I see the beauty of God’s creation, and I drown in wonder. As you rise, may the sun of wisdom and intuition also rise in my mind, and may you shine good luck, favour, and grace on all humanity.

5.Prayer When You See the Moon

Oh Moon, as you appear in the heavenly sky, I (your name) allow you to awaken my intuitive abilities and direct the light of wisdom and magic to my mind. Make me conscious of the secrets of the night, and may your motherly love shine on all humanity.

6.Prayer to the Stars

Oh heavenly stars, you remind me about the greatness and beauty of Infinite Intelligence. I (your name) call upon you to provide me with divine guidance. I ask you to guide me towards my greatest ambitions and to whatever that will make me truly happy. Oh star, may your divine light shine on all humanity.

Conclusions

Many religious folks might ignore these prayers because they believe we must only pray to God. However, the illumed will embrace these prayers because they know that the Creator’s Spirit dwells in everything, and therefore praying to the sun, moon, or stars, is similar to praying to God. As well, they know that any type of prayer connects us to our spirit-self.
