Ghosts of the Mind


God exists, he loves you, and he wants you to love him. This is the message of Jesus Christ. If you understand this information, you will know how God expects to achieve your respect and loyalty without ever having to resort to the direct application of force or violence. Because he knows it is difficult to stand in a relation of love to someone who is not a physical person, he says, you can also love someone like you would love yourself to share and show your love for him. This condition works because when you love someone he also experiences the love and the benefit of the love experienced by each person.

The deity, named God, exists as some type of mental event that appears to have no other location than inner mental space or psychic reality. He has natural influence over physical phenomena insofar as we can hear, see and feel his influence. He can signal us with wind and water, and other natural phenomena like signals from a ship and he can move our digestion, when he chooses, and help unconsciously regulate small body movements that maintain our health all the time. He can move the wind, shape the clouds, change thunder and lightening, and communicate to our mind through the refraction of light on moving water or the sounds of falling water. If he chooses to reveal himself, it is his decision, not yours, and he normally waits until you believe or know of his presence before he shows you he exists by moving these things with good timing. His existence is a fact and evidence of his existence is mostly closed to measurements of space. However, just as with space, he also has command over mental phenomena; he has full knowledge of our mind, can hear our thoughts and send us images and emotions. Reality appears to include levels of mental phenomena, rarely perceived, that explain his existence, that we may know more of when sleeping, dreaming, dying, or as part of an afterlife.

During our lifetime, he listens to prayers and makes promises to protect and support people through the influences at his command. He is the caretaker of our soul, the giver of our mind, and through the process of reincarnation he intends for us to learn and grow as people who are primarily a spiritual mental event held in place by his will through time. He can control our destination after physical death, heaven or hell, and he can control our placement during reincarnation, rich or poor. My understanding is that it takes three days to die and get reborn, although the mental experience may seem to expand time and last an entire lifetime. The mind itself appears to be a unique spiritual phenomena that is the result of many previous lifetimes of emotional learning or spiritual grooming, that shares mental continuity and personality with experiences of the afterlife, and when joined with a body creates the resulting emotions, drives, etc. that have been tempered by experience and spiritual learning over a very great length of time.

As a mental event, our mind appears to be a warehouse of divine being that is shared in common with all people who inhabit the physical world. God gives us our mind, insofar as our mind is a part of his person and many of its functions are supplied to us by his will. If our mind wants something, God may be willing to match what we want to support our mental experience, he knows the entire content of our mind. This work the illusion that mental phenomena are a response to our will power but in fact we are more like a virtual reality machine, dependent on God for the appearance of phenomena dependent on his participation. Although physical experiences are susceptible to his intervention, they are mostly independent of his will. Mental experiences however, appear to be dependent on his will.

The mind itself, like God, is indestructible. When we die, the mind leaves the body and we begin to perceive the psychic plane of existence. It is through a process of guided reincarnation that we return to earth and get reborn in a new vessel, a new body. During our journey into and out of the afterlife, our mind has continuity, not with specific memories of being on earth, but of personality centres, in general terms of who we are emotionally, or how we feel specifically as a soul, waiting for sensory input, a soul moulded by our relationships and self-perception created on earth, including our emotional or instinctive identity and feelings of class association. As our memories and other functions of the brain are enhanced evolutionary accomplishments, the mind itself appears to simply be held in place by God’s will, he centres it in our head, behind our eyes, for our benefit. When the physical body dies, the judgment of God flashes before our eyes and we witness all the relationships we have with other people and the truth about our overall emotional connection to each person known emotionally. But when the physical support system is no longer operational, our mental experience is one of travel toward a divine being who has great love for our person, or we find ourselves in hell, being perceptually assaulted by wicked associations. At this point in time, our mind does not have extended memory beyond thirty or fourty seconds, and a great fog lies on the mind, and the experience of perpetual forgetfulness is so thick that we share no awareness of the past or expectation of the future but are merely a sensory being, a noncorporeal mind, sensing and seeing mental events of emotion and location that oddly enough contain elements of worldly existence, insofar as images of hell are representations of earthly existence, etc, while images of heaven include at least, a journey or sense of travelling through space toward divine love and the desire of knowledge to remain at the side of the source of this emotional wantedness, while experiencing a vague and hazy mental environment, only with the knowledge of proximity, to a great ball of love.
