Godless Zen meditation practice as a teenager brought me closer to God than my mystical practice of Christ Consciousness as an adult.
It appears that the purpose of my life has been to crack the international conspiracy of organized orthodox religion. Beginning as a teenager my experience practicing Zen Buddhist meditation has probably brought me closer to God than anything else that I have ever experienced, and there is no God in Buddhism! Because there is no God in Buddhism, the transcendent goal is to experience oneness with the universe. The goal is to sit in relation to the universe as a partner with Buddha and Jesus.
The goal of churchianity has been to obfuscate the mystical practice of oneness with the universe. Christ consciousness teaches that the Buddhist concept of oneness is easily attainable by meditating to “I and the Father are one.” The Jesus of the Bible is a fairy tale created to support the priest class. On one level the Bible is a patriarchal hoax. Now is the time to recycle orthodox organized religion into the trash heap of history where it has always belonged. Death to the priest class.
In 2007 I attained enlightenment in Thailand during the New Year celebration. In 2008 I moved to Playa del Rey to attend Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City where I discovered transcendence from religion through Christian mystic Joel S. Goldsmith. I didn’t realize that I had already arrived and that what I was seeking was already inside of me. So my spiritual journey continued.
My whole life I was fascinated by the “G” on the rings worn by Freemasons and so in 2008 I was raised to the sublime degree of Master by a Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons at Santa Monica-Palisades Lodge #307.
Because I was into practicing yoga my whole life people kept telling me to take Kundalini yoga teacher training. So in 2017 I began formal Kundalini yoga practice in Beverly Hills. I probably learned more about yoga at expensive gyms than from so-called Kundalini Sikh gurus. Last night in the movie Infinite, actor Mark Wahlberg was dialoging about reincarnation and he pronounced the word Sikh as “seek” which in incorrect. On my lifelong spiritual path I became one of the few non-Sikhs on the planet who knows that the correct pronunciation of Sikh is “sick.” Even American Sikhs mispronounce it as “seek” in order to swerve away from the connotations of the word sick as applied to their materialistic religion. Religion is old school mind control.
Was I spiritually protected throughout my chaotic life?
It seems that I have been spiritually protected throughout my rough and tumble life and it may have all began when I was baptized into the Catholic religion as an infant. I had no concept of God consciousness as a child and so maybe God was looking out for me as a result of being sprinkled with holy water. The pull was strong and for a spell during my youth I wanted to be a Catholic priest. Then after being mesmerized by biology at Verdugo Hills high school, I can still vividly remember literally closing the door to the old Our Lady of Lourdes church and making it a symbolic ritual of closing the door on the Catholic religion. In a completion of that cosmic ritual that beautiful old church on Mountair Avenue was demolished to make way for a large modern church on Apperson Street. My next encounter with the church was twenty years later when I experienced the sacrament of holy matrimony at Sacred Family in Mexico City.
It is my belief that meditation saved my life
When I was 17 years old I drove from my hometown of Tujunga, California down to Dutton’s Bookstore in Westwood and purchased a copy of How to Meditate Without Attending a TM Class. After I told an older more mature be friend about my new book he responded: “How about meditating without a buying a book about meditation?” Then when I was 19 my cocaine dealer loaned me a dog eared copy of Zen Flesh, Zen Bones. That was the moment when I first fell in love with the universal.
