Our Avatamsaka Dhyāna View of the Sentient World


Avalokiteshvara yidam

禪觀有情世界
在日常生活中體驗諸行無常
在起心動念中覺證諸法無我
在一息尚存中成就涅槃寂靜
在法界遷流中了悟緣起性空
Our Avatamsaka Dhyāna View of This Sentient World
Experience the Impermanence of all actions in our everyday life.
Wake up to the fact that all thoughts and intentions are void of substance.
Be one with and listen to the harmonious unstruck sound of silence of Om in Nirvana before you breathe out your last and final breath of life.
In the never ending shifts and flows of the Dharma realms wake up and come to the inner-standing and realisation that the original nature of all causes and conditions is substantively void.
From your humble gardener Venerable Sakya M. Longyen

AND I HEAR GOD CALLING


trust-me-in-your-times-of-trouble-and-i-will-rescue-you-and-you-will-give-me-glory

MY CALLING IS THREE-DIMENSIONAL. AMEN.

ON A PIECE OF PAPER, draw three overlapping circles labelled A, B, and C, each circle with a portion overlapping the other two. Label the overlapping areas D=A+B, E=B+C, and F=A+C. The centre area where all three circles overlap is the area G, the spot of God, my Godliness. This is where the Spirit of God walks with me to fulfil his purpose. This Is My Calling.

Area C is IQ loosely, and not just Intelligent Quotient. It is my ability, skills, talent, and not just brain talent or skills but any kind of talent. It is practicality, the gift or anointing in spiritual term. It is education and training. It is what I do, and my instruction from God’s word. A high IQ means, for instance, I can handle finance or read a balance sheet. It means I know my stuff. But is having training or knowledge or a PhD degree enough?

Area B is EQ Emotional Quotient. It includes my personality, identity, interpersonal skills, and how I relate and communicate with people. It is who (others think) I am. It’s not the person I think I am, but the person that I project and others perceive that I am. It is my identity in Christ. A high EQ means I am attractive and people like me. It also means knowing myself and other people. But is being a people person enough?

Area A is SQ Spiritual Quotient. It includes maturity, moral authority, character that backs up my calling and my word. It is spirituality and humility. It is whose I am or whom I belong to. We all belong to somebody. We’re all under somebody. I Am Under Jesus. Amen. It is my intimacy with the Spirit of God. A high SQ means having a big walk with the Spirit of God. It means knowing Christ and making time to pray. It means having intimacy and fellowship with the Spirit of God and living with the 9-fold Fruit of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Meekness, and Self-Control.

No one can fulfil their destiny by being a one-dimensional person no matter how high their IQ or EQ or Spiritual walk is on its own. Area G is EQ and IQ and SQ combined, and it gives me influence and impact. Area G is the spot of God where God and I meet and where I am most productive and effective. It is my purpose in life. It is where I draw on the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfil God’s providence with influence and impact. When I am in this centre area, I can say, with all confidence and peace, “My life makes a difference.”

The World is the opposite of the Kingdom of God. The World wants “G” without taking steps 1, 2, or 3 or developing A, B, and C. The World wants to make a difference without Intimacy with God, Identity in Christ, or Instruction from God’s Word. The World is a world without Intimacy (A), Identity (B) or Instruction (C). They want to have it all but they don’t want to have any of the requirements.

AND I hear Him Calling… So I ask myself, “Am I inside the 3 overlapping circles? Am I in 2 overlapping circles, or am I in only 1 circle? Or possibly, am I even outside all of those circles?”

If you’re like me and wish to know your calling, do what I do. God bless you and yours. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

US DOLLARS VS JELLYBEANS

US DOLLARS VS JELLYBEANS

Imagine you make the whole world agree that anything that’s gonna be bought has to be bought with your jellybeans. What would happen to your jellybeans? The whole world would come for your jellybeans because we have no ways to buy things except through your jellybeans, even though your jellybean isn’t worth a hill of beans, everybody artificially would want the jellybeans. That’s the US dollars, a pile of jellybeans. When it collapses, it’s gonna worth jellybeans.

History tends to repeat itself. In fact, it was the promulgation of the Currency Act on 15 November 1763 by King George III that sparked the American revolution. The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III’s Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest. “The refusal of King George III to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution.” –  Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father of the US.

In 2011, after Muammar Qaddafi advocated the return to the gold standard to liberate Libya from the Saudi Arabia-US pack that pegged all future trading of oil to the US dollar, US led NATO forces toppled the Libyan government and assassinated Qaddafi.

As mentioned earlier, history tends to repeat itself. What the American globalists and the NWO don’t see is that they are living in their jellybeans made-belief world in which nothing is real. The US dollar that the US Treasury keeps on printing is not worth the paper they’re printed on. This is the root cause of inflation and the dwindling purchasing power of any currency because the amount of money in circulation is not equal to the true value of the goods and services in such economy. Nevertheless, by setting the US dollar as the standard for oil trading, the US is forcing everybody to use the US dollar as currency for all goods and services.

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.” — Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain.

The US may think that nobody is strong enough to topple their government, or regime, if I need to be politically correct, but it doesn’t take much for God to fix things.

False Prophecies


The Bible time, lies told by false prophets were known as “false prophecies”; in the end time today, false prophecies are known as “fake news stories,” and the false prophets themselves the mainstream media. During this time, everything is fake, such as fake oil, fake rice, fake noodles, fake eggs, fake walnuts, fake beef, fake green peas, fake baby formulae, fake salt, fake ginseng, fake outage, and fake body parts. In Japan and Canada imitation food are for decor or display in restaurant showcases. In China, fake foods are sold and exported for human consumption.

Lies


People who tell lies usually speak in the subjunctive mood and say things like “I should have…” or “I probably would have been… if…” or “I could have but I did not.” The subjunctive describes nothing, but creates an illusion, a diversion and distraction, a smoke screen, a fable, things that do not exist.

To spot a lie, ask direct questions that require a direct Yes or No answer. If the person replies by saying “Well…” instead of giving a direct Yes or No answer, then that person is lying.

As you are, so is the world. – Akira Tomiyama

Harmony

To be in harmony, at least one must be able to accommodate, tolerate, concede to, and accept others insofar as the ocean can contain all waters running into it and as space can permeate all things.

One must also be agreeable and be able to integrate, assimilate, and fuse one’s experience to see the world as it really is.

Therefore, when everything outside is incongruous, harmony is more easily attained within and less without. – Akira Tomiyama

You are, therefore I am. – Akira Tomiyama
