Astrology, November 2020 and Joni Patry

Meet Joni Patry, Vedic Astrologer. What does she know? Hear what she says about November 2020. Don’t worry if she mentions things like “Nak-shatra’s” or Rahu & Katu. Focus more on the dates she gives and what the energies or influences will be around those times. This video may raise a few eyebrows. Interesting stuff. Have a listen. Sounds like a wild ride.

Does a Cloned human being have a Soul?

The question is: Would a scientifically Cloned human who was NOT “incubated” or grown inside a human mother for 9 months….would it have any Soul?

Suppose a Mother is going to have twins. They will be born and they will be healthy. Will each twin have a Soul?  Most everyone will also say “Yes!”   But now, just suppose—

A scientist Clones a human being from conception in a Petri dish and somehow feeds and “grows” it outside a Mother until  “regular 9-month birth time” and then keeps feeding it and letting some parents adopt it.  A healthy, functioning, CLONE.  It can crawl, later walk, learn to talk and keep on developing as a natural kid would. Question: but does this “human” have a Soul??  While most people would say the husband & wife “made a  baby”, we *don’t* usually say that the parents “put” the Soul into the baby.

So, if God does it for a Natural baby (puts a Soul into the body), does a Scientist put a Soul into a lab-created Clone? I think people would say “NO!”.  How would they? From where? 

—then, now we have a Human without  a Soul, and when it dies, there is nothing to go to Heaven, or Hell, or even any sort of near-death or after-death anything!!

It gets weirder and opens a big can of worms.  Religiously, if one has no soul, is it possible to be “tempted”? It would seem not. If no soul, then WHAT is being tempted?  Another question: If your Soul hasn’t sinned (because you dont have one), will the Clone escape any Judgement Day?  There is still more—

When “natural” people have a near-death experience, they often report they experienced a rapid Life-review of their earthly Life. Would this happen if a being had no Soul? If there is no soul to go on to a Hell, or Heaven, or some other “plane”, then what’s the point? Would anything–other than–a Soul go to a Heaven or a Hell?  What?

 

Spiritual Advancement

I like to read about Religions, Psychic development, Spirituality, etc.

When you ask someone else who is “into” those sorts of things: “Why are we here? What is our purpose?”—-you might be told: “to advance and develop, spiritually.”

This may sound good, but if you pause and think about it for a minute, that tells you almost nothing at all. So let’s go deeper and ask:

  1. Exactly what—is “more spiritual”?
  2. Whatever it is, it should be recognizable, so you could say you want to be more like *that*, and describe what that is.
  3. How can you tell when one person is “farther along the Path” than someone who is a newbie?
  4. Is your Teacher or mentor more Spiritual than you? How? Exactly what makes him or her that way?
  5. Even if they are more advanced, does this mean in any way that they have further “evolved”? Far too many people take “spiritual evolution” to be some automatic given, as if all you have to do is simply be interested at all or just read 1 or 2 books and evolution is automatic….but if you believe in spiritual evolution, ask yourself: “evolving” towards …What?? How? And how would you know that it’s any “higher”? No one really seems to be able to say. So again, what is Spiritual development? How does more of it look different from less of it and how do you know you are doing it? People work out in a Gym to get physically stronger. How can you exercise in order to advance or get stronger spiritually? Comments always welcome.

Where did your Soul come from?

Religion. The Occult. Spirituality. And—your Soul.

So! You were born. You are alive, and you have a Soul. If you believe you have a Soul, you probably also believe it will go…..somewhere……after death.   But where it might go is not my question.

Instead, I want to know (and no one is asking about this)—–WHERE was it?—before— you were born?  Where did it come from? Where was your Soul before it was in your baby body?   Not–who made it, but rather, where was it?  It had to come from somewhere……where?

Have you ever used or do you have the Solar Fire Astrology software program?

Do you like it?  Name 2 things that you like best about it. How does it compare to another program called Kepler?

Irish Folklore and stories

There are many fascinating things about Ireland. How did they begin? For example:

  1. Who was the first Leprechaun? Where do they come from? What is their purpose?

2. “The Luck of the Irish”.   How did the Irish become Lucky?

3. Are 4-Leaf Clovers lucky?  Why?

4. What are the main functions of Elves?   How are Elves different from Gnomes or Pixies?

5.  Why is there a Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow?

6. Where do Gargoyles come from and what do they do?

7. Why is the Blarney Stone Lucky?

 

What is Spirituality?

What is Spirituality?

What do you feel it is?  Why?

step 1.  DEFINE EVERYTHING!
WHAT IS –being on “the Path”? The path to what? and why that?
What IS –‘Enlightenment”?
What is the 1st sign of “Awakening”? And why do you feel that is the first sign?
How is a “more spiritual” person different from a less spiritual one? And don’t hide behind “I don’t want to judge anyone”.
What does ANYONE even mean by “Spirituality” anyway? To say “spiritual, but not religious” still tells anyone asking nearly nothing. And being vague is not being profound. Or any sign of “wisdom”.

Get specific! What does the guru mean by it? What do *you* mean by it? and why that?

…..and….if all of the above is too “hard core” or “exhausting” for you, then you are either “faking it” or still haven’t “evolved” enough.
What is Spirituality?—“spirituality is just a too-politically-correct word for wimps who wont take a stand on anything and don’t know what the hell they believe. But they think it sounds “cool” anyway”. What do you believe? Why does it makes sense to you?
NO APOLOGIES for defining things!

And then there is spiritual “development”. What is that? How would you know you have developed and are “further along the Path” than you were before?

Name 3 bad spiritual paths. What makes the path you are following now, better?
Do you have ANY idea -at all- of 4 or 5 of the popular beliefs/paths that people have followed as “alternative spirituality” over the last 150 years? Name them. Who was the founder? What did they teach? Again, how is what you are doing now, better?
Do you believe there are “paths” that are a waste of time (and don’t just pick on Christianity. Dare to critique another “alternative spirituality belief-system”).
I really want to know. And no, I’m not an Atheist or Materialist.

NEW questions about Near-death experiences

Near-death experiences. You’ve heard the story:

“The doctors said I was dead. I was out of my body and could see and hear them working on me. Then I whoooosshhed through this “tunnel” and realized I was dead. I saw a “playback” of my Life. Then, I was in the presence of this bright white light (some report a bluish-white light) and I felt this intense, incredible love coming from the light.”

Then, people are either told they must come back, or, given a choice to come back or not. Then, they wake back up, here on earth, alive. And they often report they have no fear of death. Most of them. Some people have had terrifying experiences and are very glad to have “a second chance”.

But that isn’t what I want to talk about. It’s what’s left out, and not talked about, that I find curious:

Think about it. In all these many testimonies (mostly positive), when you think about it, it strikes me as very odd, that seemingly NO ONE, ever, that we’ve read or heard about, has ever bothered to ask “the loving white light”:  (and I say this as someone who is not a member of any church):

  1. “ARE YOU, Jesus Christ?  If not, who are you?
  2. Tell me, who is Jesus Christ? Do YOU love Jesus?
  3. Why can’t I see your face?
  4. Is this Heaven?  Where are we now?
  5. Loving feelings or not, if I don’t go back, and do come with you, will I be in Hell? Would you accompany me into Heaven?
  6. White Light—what is your Name?  Are you Satan? Lucifer? Who?

And NOBODY asks. Isn’t that strange? Hundreds of testimonies, and not one person bothers to ask.  People just believe whatever they’re told by some mysterious light that radiates “love”,  we have have no idea WHO we’re talking to, WHERE we are, where the light would take us if we stayed, or who the Light is, or what the light thinks about Jesus.  Feelings of love or not, that white light sounds pretty-darn vague. Why? Think about all this. Share this post with others.

Manifest. New TV show.

There is a NEW TV show on Monday nights. It’s called: “Manifest”.  It looks good.

 

What happens when you get on a plane, the flight encounters turbulence, but you land safely, and then you find out that…….watch this!

Service is over-rated.

Service, is overrated! Serving humanity. “A life of service.”

” Giving Back to the Community. ”

So that we can “Make a difference”.

And feel “empowered”.

Funny how no one ever spells out exactly what “the Community” ever already did for them, personally, so that they would ever feel any need to “give back” in the first place!

Its not that doing good things for others is bad, I’m not saying that. But its overrated. Far too many people do it so they can tell others that they did. They want the recognition.

To show they “cared”. And “made a difference”. Now, they get to feel “empowered.” And they “gave back to the Community” more than you did. It goes too far. And “being of service” far too often becomes a matter of putting burdens and a sense of obligation and Duty onto others –and ourselves!

Far too many people “give back” so that they can wear the pin or ribbon they got for “serving” to work the next day, so folks will ask them what that is, and maybe then they can 1-upmanship you and say how they “cared” enough to “make a difference” and now they “feel empowered” .

How much Volunteerism would really get done if you couldn’t tell anyone that you did it?

And, just suppose, what if loving  and seeking God counted more than how many sandwiches you made at the Soup kitchen, or how many fundraisers you went to, or marathons you ran in?  What if understanding spiritual laws and developing yourself spiritually counts more in the afterlife than your last fundraiser?

In the Bible, Jesus says in Matthew, chapter 22, verse 37 that the greatest commandment is that “you shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart, all of your soul and all of your mind.” In the very next verse,  verse 38, he adds that “This is the first and great commandment.”  After that, if you continue reading further, he goes on to say that the second  great commandment is “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

In my opinion, the problem today is that too many people are trying to do the 2nd commandment and ignoring the 1st.

While Charity and doing good works are commendable, i feel that “Making a Difference” is todays politically-correct all-the-rage FAD. Everyone-and-their-dog wants to “make a difference” –and while kindness is good,  “service” and  “giving back” can become a burden that robs you of  pleasure and Joy!

Don’t let it. Too much service can drain you emotionally. Some, is good. But watch out– it can become  “Duty gone wild”. And people really can get “compassion fatigue”. No matter how much you do, you can’t save the world.  It’s important to “feel alive!” , to have some Zest in life and to FEEL like smiling! Activists burn out. So do group organizers. Service becomes their “religion” or a 1-upmanship game with them to show everyone how much the “cared”.  But many of them don’t look happy. They may tell themselves they are doing the right thing, but when they are away from “the Cause”, how enthusiastic (about Life-in-general) are they? How often do they laugh? Very likely, not enough. I say: being a helpful coworker, yes. Being a sincere & reliable friend, yes. But being a service-fanatic or community-activist so you can “look good” around others, naaah.  What if you were stranded alone on a large island and couldn’t do anything for someone else? Would that make your Life meaningless?

I don’t always agree with Alan Watts, especially when he talks (in other videos) about “the Self”. Bleeaugh! But on some other things, I think he makes good points. But we all must decide for ourselves.
