SPIRIT–HILARY L HUNT MD

SPIRIT–Now, here’s an interesting word that is used with many different connotations. One of the most common, of course, is the Holy Spirit. In the not too distant past, the Holy Spirit was referred to as the Holy Ghost. Quite obviously, since no one has ever seen a ghost, each person will likely have a different image or understanding of a ghost. They might even think of a ghost as a goblin or, conversely, as an angel. Whatever the case, each person has a different ideation.

Another less common, but fairly often, use is in describing a person’s demeanor or approach to a specific subject, usually a sport. For instance, we may sometimes hear someone say something like, “she sure has spirit”, or “that sure is a spirited horse”, or “he has drive (spirit) like there’s no tomorrow”, etc.

Many liquor store marques read, “Beer–Wine–Spirits”. Of course, what those Spirits refer to is high content alcoholic beverages such as whiskey, gin, vodka and the likes. The early Native Americans had a special name for them—they called them Firewater—I wonder why.

In most instances, what we are referring to when we say spirit is drive or driving force. That force may be applied in both directions, either as repelling, like a bat striking a ball, or attracting, such as a magnet. That drive can be ‘stored or dormant’ such as electricity in batteries. Energized electric lines stand ready to deliver the full spirit or drive of their current flow—all they need in order for it to be applied is for someone to open the gate (switch).

The spirit I want to address, specifically, today is love, which falls into the category of ‘magnet-like’, attractive, forces—love is acceptance. When we say, ‘I love you’, what we’re really saying is, ‘I accept you’—my spirit accepts yours. Love is the exact opposite of hate which is a force of rejection and repelling. Synonyms for spirit are love, will, choose, accept. Now lets apply that concept to the Holy Ghost (Spirit).

As many of you know, I have defined the essence of God: God is a Perfect Rational Being. That definition demands that God exist in Trinity form. Please allow me to explain. Before there was time, God existed in eternity in a state of ‘stored energy’ known as the Singularity. However, with his perfect intellect, he reflected inwardly and saw a mirror image of himself—perfect in all respects (the Son). Then, there were two Perfect Intellects viewing each other—they had no choice except to love, will, choose, accept each other—two perfect, identical, intellects could not possibly reject each other—such a thought would be ‘perfect irrationality’. That loving, choosing, willing, accepting of each other is the Holy Spirit, the Will of God, the third person of the Trinity.

What God visualized, imagined, intellectualized, while he existed in the state of singularity, was each and every perfect quantum (particle of energy) of which everything in existence is made, Cumulatively, they represent a reflection of their creator—they are the Son. Since each of those particles is prefect in both form and function, and since each is indistinguishable from its counterparts, and since each is unchanging and unchangeable, they do now, always have, and always will exist in eternity—they are God. It is the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit (the Will of God, the Acceptance of God, the Love of God, the Choosing of God), which is ‘branded’ onto each particle and keeps each perfect, just as their creator is perfect. That bonding and binding is perfect—an unbreakable force.

Therefore, each of us, everything in existence, and every occurrence of any kind is the direct result of the Will of God. It is impossible for God to hate (reject) anything he has made—God is Prefect Love—God is The Holy Spirit.

The brilliant Jesus recognized that identical philosophy to be absolute truth. Jesus condemned no one—he did cite some for being hypocrites. He said that Love is the only answer—love of God, and love of all others. There are very few places in the written word we have which verify that concept—the two most notable are in Marks Gospel where he ‘spells it out’ with his two commands of love, and in John’s first letter which infers it.

The Jews killed Jesus for his ‘traitorous teaching’. Moreover, those who wrote and rewrote the Bible ad nauseum certainly appear to have tried to hide his teachings, ostensibly, because those teachings negated the writer’s ‘religion cause’. The only place I can find where Jesus freely lays it out, which has been preserved, is in the Coptic Gospel of Thomas. That Gospel, along with many fragments of other Coptic writings, was discovered in a cave near Nag Hammadi, Egypt in 1945. Its content shows it to be contemporary to, or to predate the Canonical writings we have. It was rejected by the Bishops at the First Nicaean Council for obvious reasons—it clearly negated their need ‘to be’—it clearly negates any and all forms of religion. It does, however demonstrate Jesus’ inherent understanding of Triune God—Jesus knew and clearly stated over and over that the Spirit of God was in everybody and everything in existence, including himself. Jesus despised religion and all of its perpetrators. Furthermore, he saw himself as the image of God who was to be the Eternal Sacrifice for all of the evil (selfishness) in our totally selfish temporal universe which his Father had created. Jesus had zeal which is another good synonym for spirit.

The second of my two philosophy books, Peace in Spirituality, clearly spells out the meaning of spirit in Spirituality, and the absolute necessity for universal spirituality before peace can be achieved.

In recognition of that principle, more than two years ago, I called for The World-Wide Communion of Spirituality. So far, I have seen no heedence of that call. Still, there exists a desperate, urgent, need for spiritual union among us all—sadly, I don’t see it happening anytime soon. Nevertheless, the call must be continually propagated so that, sooner or later, hopefully, it will be heard and honored by more and more people. It must become an unrelenting drive and ‘rally cry’ among us—the loving call of spirit—the glue that binds us together— loving acceptance of God and each other.

JUSTICE–HILARY L HUNT MD

The word justice has many implications but the one I will address today is retributive. It seems that anywhere in our global society where any form of Christianity prevails, the legal system is based on the biblical concept of justice—an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. I believe the basis for such determination was the ignorance of how personality is formed. The Jews, from which Christianity sprang through Jesus, seemed to have a firm, self-righteousness about basically everything concerning person and possessions. They, of course, wrote the Old testament, and in that book, they framed their God exactly after themselves. Inevitably, they framed ‘hate’ under the guise of ‘justice’.

I suppose the perpetuation of that ignorance and hate has gone unnoticed and, worse still, unquestioned even today. I have, however, in some of my recent readings, noticed a tendency in some incarceration circles to take a somewhat more sympathetic (loving) attitude toward criminals. As the fields of psychology and psychiatry have been explored and developed more fully, there seems to be inkling of attitude change toward those who break our laws.

No one is born a criminal. They become so through faulty personality development. That recognition is finally gaining traction. The answer lies, not in retributive punishment, but rather in ‘loving’ reprogramming and rehabilitation where possible. We must always hate the crime, but love the criminal–-but for the grace of God, there go I.

Jesus understood that principle exactly—“let him without sin cast the first stone”. The Jews killed Jesus for that philosophy. Worse yet, the entire Christian world which ensued ignored Jesus. We certainly have the right, morally, legally and otherwise to dislike things that others say and do, but I submit to you that we do not have the right to hate anyone under any circumstance—God doesn’t. God is Perfect Love—he accepts everyone of us as we are. That’s exactly what Jesus told us to do—we are to love our God with our all , and we are to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Jesus never heard of psychology, psychiatry, Quantum Mechanics or any developed science—there was none. However, with his genius mind, he could instinctively see though those sciences, not in their specifics, but rather in their implications and applications. Two thousand years ago he told us exactly what we are gradually gleaning today through study and experimentation—1-we all are specific, unique individuals because of our trillions of different life’s experiences, and 2- God is in everything.

Psychology and biology have taught us that we were different even before we were conceived—each sperm and egg carries a different blueprint. In addition, from the moment of conception, each experience of any kind is different for everyone.

Psychiatry and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, engineered and propagated by Sigmund Freud has shown us that it is possible, in willing subjects, to re-train and re-orient our psyches.

Quantum Mechanics has shown us that we and everything in gravid existence are composed of identical perfect building blocs called quanta. A quantum is a smallest particle of energy which cannot be subdivided—neither can it be created nor destroyed by us. Knowledge of their perfection lends credence to the acceptance of ‘belief in God’. I have defined the essence of our God thus: God is a Perfect Rational Being. That rationality is shared with all living things. Science is the learning of specific points of God’s perfection. Gradually, we’re ‘catching on’—we’ll never know it all—we’re very imperfect.

Scientific knowledge in those three specific spheres, augmented by others areas of knowledge, helped me formulate the basis for my argument against retributive justice. Obviously, societally deranged people must be incarcerated until and when they can be re-programed and be made ‘fit for society’. Hate must never be the basis for incarceration—physical and or mental abuse as a form of justice must never be allowed or advocateda loving, supportive , understanding, approach must be our goal always.

In that vein, just today, I posted a story about Amazon removing a booklet written by Scott Hughes, Webmaster for Online Book Club from their sales page. Seemingly, there had been a public outcry by people who had not read the booklet claiming it promoted love of rape and other crimes. It is a totally false claim. Scott asked his friends in Online Book Club to read the booklet free and to share with others. What his booklet does is promote love, even of rapist and other criminals. Furthermore, it strongly advocates against hate. His philosophy seems to coincide with mine

It is the same philosophy that I argue for and espouse in my two little books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. I am certain that if we as a society cannot come to that realization and acceptance soon, we are doomed.

Talk is cheap as they say. I hate just as you do—we all do—we all are imperfect. However we must make it a priority to never seek justice in a penal sense, but rather in a sense of loving acceptance and determination to help whenever and whenever possible. That help will come from many sources: societal education about the psychology of personality development; religious retraining, negating the concepts of a vengeful, wrathful God; and support of governmental rehabilitation programs aimed at a more humane management of criminals.

PREDETERMINED–HILARY L HUNT MD

PREDETERMINED–This word refers to ‘the establishment of, or a decision about, something in advance of its occurrence’. We see signs of, and actual events of, predetermination on a regular basis, particularly in the political sphere. When one party controls all three branches of government in the USA, it is a given fact that they can and will do as they please—their only obstacle would be a contestation in the Supreme Court by any objectors.

In the sphere of religion, there seem to be some, maybe many, who believe that God has predetermined everything in their lives including their eternal fate in either heaven or hell. I have to take great exception to that philosophy for one simple reason—God is perfect which means that, among other things, God cannot possibly ‘take sides’. I think the confusion arises in the differential understanding between the concepts of ‘predetermining’ and ‘knowing’. I’ll attempt to explain the difference.

Shortly after publishing my little book, Wilderness Cry, I got a phone call from one of my good Catholic friends. He was in a near-state of convulsion—he requested an immediate audience with me—I readily obliged . About thirty minutes later, I welcomed him into my house—in his hand, he was holding eight type-written pages of questions. As he sat down to a cup of coffee, in a very trembling and excited voice he said ,”You are a determinist”, and I said, “I am a what?” He said, “In your book, you say God has already pre-determined everything that’s going to happen. My reply was a very calm, “You must read my book again more slowly and carefully. I said nothing of the sort. Please allow me to explain”—and explain I did.

I’ll call him Joe for convenience. I said, “Joe there’s a big, big difference between ‘knowing’ what’s going to happen and ‘making’ it happen. Please allow me to explain that difference with a simple example.” I did explain to Joe with a very simple example. I asked him no note his presence in my house. I advised him that I knew for a fact that, sooner or later, one way or another, dead or alive, he was going to leave my house. However, just because I knew that fact, I was not the determiner of that action—more than likely, I would just be a friendly observer.

Joe’s eyes got wide open, and after a moment or two of pause, he excitedly exclaimed, “Oh yea, I get it now. God knows what will happen, but he is not directly making it happen. He’s just a casual observer. Why didn’t I see that when reading your book? That’s exactly what you say. I guess I wasn’t being openminded, as you had suggested, while reading it. You just answered all my questions. Thank you so much.” And with that, he tore the papers in half and placed them in a nearby trash can.

We sat for two more hours discussing the ramifications of my definition of God’s essence—Joe was ecstatic. After another cup of coffee, he excitedly remarked that he couldn’t wait to get home and explain to his wife—and with that, just as I had known, he departed my house—I knew it all along.

God is a Perfect Rational Being . That Rationality imagines all, pervades all, allows all, and observes all. It knows for certain the consequence of each action that has occurred or ever will occur. God’s perfection demands a ‘hands -off’ demeanor and attitude. If he were to interfere, God would be breaking his own rules, which in itself would negate any sense of perfection. Therefore, God cannot possibly be pleased or displeased; he cannot possibly change his own nature—consequently, physical miracles are impossible.

Begging God to ‘make something happen’ that is contrary to his own nature is unwittingly blasphemous. I realize that you, I, and all so-called Christians have been taught to, beg God for all sorts of things. That’s the God of the Jews whom could be bargained with—that is not the Perfect Being who created the perfect building blocks of everything in a universe so vast as to be incomprehensible. That is not the God who exist in eternity—a state of being where no time (change) is possible. If there were change, then there would be time, and eternity would be destroyed—God cannot possibly do that to himself.

So, in summary, we must recognize that the Perfect God who created every perfect tiniest particle of energy, of which every gravid entity is made, and commissioned them with his Will, The Holy Spirit, to remain perfect in both form and function, knows exactly what each has done and will do forever. That is the only determination he ever made. God has not pre-determined any action by anything, but he knows exactly what will be the consequence of any and all actions.

There is a monstrous difference between knowing and causing.

If you have not already read my two little books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality, I strongly urge you to do so. If you already have read them, I would encourage you to re-read, and read again and again, if necessary, until you grasp their full meaning. You will find total peace with your God—furthermore you will learn the real identity of your God. He has been known by probably a thousand different names in the past—names such as God, Yahweh, Allah. Brahma, Zeus etc., but his real identity has been hidden by religion. And that, my friends, as Robert Frost said in his famous little poem, The Road Not Taken, “has made all the difference”.—perpetual discord and wars—the word ‘sad’ is totally inadequate to describe our predicament.

In rebuttal or retort you may say, “but we have free will”, and I say, “the will is only free to choose what the intellect presents to it as the better of two choices”. Only in an irrational (insane) person could it be otherwise. Then you may ask why my intellect does not see the same ‘better’ as yours? The answer to that lies in the fact that each intellect has been pre-conditioned by billions of different experiences in its life—therefore, what seems ‘good’ to one intellect may seem ‘not so good’ to another. A simple example—why do some people vote conservative while others vote liberal? The answer lies in how our intellects have been preconditioned by selfish considerations. And I say ‘selfish’ because each time we vote or do anything, we do it with an attitude of what we consider to be in ‘our best interest’. And if we do something which we think is in the best interest of someone else, we wittingly or unwittingly are doing it for a selfish reason of self-satisfaction, or for the purpose of making ‘brownie points’—even Mother Theresa admitted that.

BELIEVE–HILARY L HUNT MD

The word ‘believe’ is one of the most commonly used in everyday conversation—I believe this or that. In fact, it is so common as to control the thought processes of most people whom I have observed. It seems to be so ordinary as to dominate many people’s life patterns. A classic example is the widespread belief that the Covid-19 vaccine is intrinsically dangerous. So, lets examine the validity of beliefs.

The first thing that must be done is to define the word ‘belief’. A belief is accepting an idea or concept about something as being true without proof— scientific, philosophical, or otherwise. History has shown that, since the inception of record-keeping, beliefs without proofs have been the most destructive forces civilization has ever known . Likely, a book enumerating all the problems created by ‘false beliefs’ would be too heavy for any individual to lift—and those would just be beliefs imposed on their subjects by Kings, Rulers, Religious Hierarchy, and government agencies of all types.

The afore-mentioned address only large segments of society at any given time. What about personal beliefs? There’s a old, but very true, saying that ‘Perception is Reality’. What that means is that anything we ‘believe’ becomes ‘truth’ for us—factually, it may be, and frequently is, totally false. You may say; what difference does it make, and I would say, everything. Just look at some of the myriad of undesirable consequences—here, again, a book listing them all would be voluminous. Lets examine a few.

Interpersonal relationships are wrecked routinely by false beliefs and or/assumptions about someone else. Many of those false concepts may be based on a prejudicial, stereotypical attitude towards another person’s ‘looks’ or ‘peculiar habits’. A major spinoff of such expressed belief is the prejudicing of others such as friends, children, etc., about that person. In another vein, we see the terrible psychological consequences, particularly instilled into little children, by irrational ‘fear beliefs’—those, so afflicted, frequently become permanently disabled in a given sphere of life and have no understanding of why.

In our ever-day lives, on a moment to moment basis, we are required to make judgements based on ‘beliefs’, without knowing whether or not they are true. For instance, how often do you hear someone say ‘they took or didn’t take a certain road or street’ because of ‘such and such’—their reasoning is usually based on past experience and could be considered justified, but it may be false.

Needless to say, it behooves us to be ‘cautious’ in our beliefs. Past experience plus scientific knowledge are likely the two best supporters for ‘realistic belief’.

Historically, belief in a god (God) has caused more turmoil and strife in society than any other singular entity—the reason being, each person’s god was/is different from everyone’s else. How could that be? It is a known fact that every society in recorded history ‘believed’ in a higher power or god. The problem arose because no one could define the essence of that god. Everyone’s god was different—so, they fought, and fought, and fought. Guess what—they’re still fighting.

Just a reminder—there was a time in the foundation of so-called Christianity, the Catholic Church, that failure to accept a particular belief meant certain torture followed by death on a pile of burning wood. For example, the Church proclaimed the earth to be flat—deny that, and you get burned; sex on any elevated structure meant certain burning because the vibrations from such activity might cause the flat earth to topple off its five crocked, wobbly, legs into the netherworld below; failure to accept the earth as ‘the center of the universe’ meant certain incineration (Galileo story); belief that the ‘Holy Land’ belonged to the Church justified the Crusades and the ensuing slaughter of thousands. One of the most bizarre beliefs was in ‘witches’—even the Protestants partook of that one, and brought it to the New World with hanging of witches before the government stopped the practice.

So here we are today in a world filled with hostility generated by a belief in an unidentified god. However, by the ‘Grace of God’, I have been able to irrefutably identify and define the essence of our God once and for all—God is a Perfect Rational Being. That rationality pervades, and makes and keeps perfect, everything in this universe(s). One has to look into the ultimate limits of creation and existence to understand that Perfection—that is Quantum Mechanics (particle physics).

Most people are educated in the basic understanding of chemistry and classical physics— most understand the basic laws of gravity. That is the visible, palpable, world we live in. Those laws are predicable and trustworthy—we have put a human on the moon as an example. Moreover, there are millions, maybe billions, of examples right in our everyday lives which we take for granted—none of that science was known five hundred years ago—peoples lives were regulated by ‘beliefs’, almost all of which were erroneous and based on the pseudo-science of astrology.

So how is it that I can proclaim the essence of God when I can’t even prove God’s existence. Admittedly, I am required to say ‘I believe” there is God, but here is why I’m justified in saying it. In chemistry, we learn the make-up of basic gravid material. We know that atoms are composed of protons, neutron and electrons—we know that atoms react with each other in various ways to form molecules—we know that molecules act and react with each other in various ways to form basic materials—we know that basic materials can be formulated to assist in the creation of all sorts of objects which we may use in various ways in our daily lives. However, what most people don’t know is what the protons and neutrons are made of—therein lies the basis for my, not only believing (accepting) a concept of God , but , more importantly, being able and mandated to define God’s essence. That field of endeavor is known as Quantum mechanics.

We learn in Quantum Mechanics that protons and neutrons are sub-divisible. They are composed of multiple, indivisible, indistinguishable from each of its kind, particles which are perfect in both form and function. Collectively, they are the smallest particles of energy of which everything is made. Since not a single one of them can be created nor destroyed, and since each is perfect in both form and function (meaning it cannot possibly change), each and all exist in eternity. Each is doing, always has done, and always will do exactly what it was designed to do, and do it perfectly. These particles have names such as electron, quark, boson, photon, to name a few. The knowledge of that universal perfection allowed me to see the ‘Real God’—I had/have a realistic scientific basis for my belief.

Not only do I have a realistic basis for my understanding of God’s essence, but I have a clear picture of the Trinity God. I’ll try to paint that picture for you. Before there was time, God existed in what is known as ‘The Singularity’. With his Perfect Intellect, he reflected upon himself and thereby created a perfect mirror image of himself (the Son). Since both exist in eternity, both are living beings. So what choice would two perfect intellects viewing each other have but to love (chose, accept, will) each other. That perpetual loving, accepting, choosing, willing of each other carries the image of its generators—we call that the Holy Spirit—the Will of God.

God visualized the conversion of his energy into all of those tiny particles which make up everything in our vast universe, and they became his reflection, and he says ‘hum’, I love that, I will that. Therefore, in my assessment, I have proclaimed that the Will of God (The Holy Spirit) is indelibly stamped onto every one of those tiny particles—thereby, they are perfect always. The moment God said, “I will that”, time began. Time is a measure of change. The little particles, themselves, never change, but the stuff they make up is constantly changing and in a perfectly ordered fashion. Everything that has ever happened or that ever will happen is the perfect consequence of all the consequences that went before beginning with the Big Bang—the moment God said ‘I Will that”.

You may say, as I did, “where does Jesus fit into that picture?”. It became instantly obvious to me that Jesus, just as we and everything in existence, are mirror images of God. With his super-human intellect, Jesus saw through the psychology of human, animal, plant, and inanimate existences—he recognized the singular evil of selfishness in all—he saw himself as, not only God’s mirror image, but as a ‘sacrificial lamb’ who must die in atonement for that evil. He knew that love (acceptance) by us, not only of God, but of all creation was necessary for peace and happiness. They killed him for that assessment.

Furthermore, and sadly, no one, to date, has listened to Jesus. Each, in turn, has made a mockery of his teaching. They have ignored his only meaningful words, while, at the same time, distorting his other words. Consequently, we have perpetual turmoil—will we ever learn?—seems, likely, not. My two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality spell out that philosophy precisely. You will obtain ‘objective reasons’ for your beliefs in their reading. However, you must read with an open mind which demands that this problem’s solution, and all problem’s solutions, must begin with the source—in this case with a definition of the essence of God. If you cannot define your God’s essence, your god is a myth.

SELFISHNESS–HILARY L HUNT MD

Just what is selfishness anyway? In my little book, Wilderness Cry, I define selfishness as anything directed at self. That is a very general, and, necessarily all inclusive, definition. I daresay that most people who have been disciplined in almost any ‘religion’ would automatically associate selfishness with their inculcated concept of sin. Certainly, there are degrees of selfishness, just as there are of most things—those extremes have been labeled as ‘sin’.

Also, in my little book, I make, what may seem to many, to be a rather ‘bold’ statement by proclaiming that everything in the universe is evil by virtue of its selfishness. That, of course, brings us to another ‘curve in the road’—just what is ‘evil’? Here again, we have been imbued with the idea that evil must be equilibrated with sin. In truth, those who have led and instructed us have designated anything and everything which seems ‘distasteful’ to us/them as sin. It all started with the chief sin policeman, himself, Moses. That gentleman started the fire with just ten ‘pieces of kindling’. However, the three Abrahamic religions that followed kept ‘loading the wagon’ with sin logs so that even as I speak, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, is constituted of nine hundred, 6″x9″, rather small print, pages of ‘sin kindling’—and the Jews thought they had it bad with a measly 640, or so, laws.

You might ask, what’s the point of all this rambling? I would likely amaze you and possibly even scandalize you by saying “God made it to be that way” for a very specific purpose. Allow me to explain one more time. All gravid creation exists in a time and motion framework. Time, of course in an incremental measure of change. Every living thing is required to do basically the same things—come into existence, stay in existence for a period of time , reproduce, and die—all of that requires change. When any entity dies, it begins the immediate decomposition process. When that process is completed, its basic elemental residue will be assimilated into other objects. That process will occur repeatedly until all return to the unchanging and unchangeable ‘singularity’ which I/we call God, Allah, Buddha, Brahma, Yahweh, etc.—the one and only true God which I have defined as A Perfect Rational Being.

Minus selfishness, which demands change, the universe would stand still—it would exist in eternity. So, in order to function, everything must, by its very natural order, be continually and continuously changing. Furthermore, literally all change involves selfishness—meaning that all change is directed at the appetite of self. Again, in Wilderness Cry, the universality of that selfishness is well elucidated.

In light of the foregoing understanding, it seems imperative that we alter our attitude about the ‘sin’ in selfishness. In a general sense, everything needs food and water, shelter, protection, reproduction, etc. It is the extremes of those fundamental activities that have been decried as ‘sin—that was Moses’ method of dealing with his wayward subjects. I vouch to say that God ‘cares naught’.

God gave all living things instincts and intellects with which to deal with adversity of all kinds—no individual nor group has developed a fool-proof plan yet—I dare say they never will. Everything belongs in the ‘food chain’—sooner or later everything, including us, will become food for something (bacteria, mice, rats, bears, who knows what)—God made it to be that way. In essence, God feeds off himself.

The founding fathers of our nation, having experienced the tyranny found in other forms of government, recognized that selfishness, bridled by regulatory controls, was the only way humans could govern themselves successfully. So, they devised a constitutional form of government which incentivized each person to become industrious for himself (selfishness), while, at the same time, helping support the ‘common good’ projects such as schools, roads, infrastructure of all kinds, military for defense etc.—they called it Democratic Capitalism. In addition, their system not only allowed for, but encouraged charitable support for the less fortunate. Unfortunately, their record was terribly marred by the blight of slavery. In their defense, they inherited a fourteen thousand year legacy of slavery. Furthermore that legacy was fostered and supported by religion. The world seems for the most part to have come to grips with its ‘wicked ways’, but the remaining scars are wide and deep, and continue to linger, creating smoldering hostilities.

Why then would God create such a selfish universe? I pondered that question long and hard before I came to realize the rather obvious answer. God, actually had a need. He needed to demonstrate his Perfect Love to the world and himself. In the abstract, love is just a concept. Active love requires a lover and a lovee—what greater lovee could God possibly have than an entire universe(s) of evil (selfishness) which he, himself created, and, in which he resides?—enter his son and our brother Jesus. Jesus saw the ‘big picture’—he witnessed the unbridled greed of the king and ‘upper crusts’ of religion. He taught us that love (acceptance) of God and our neighbor was the only way to peace and happiness. So, he graciously accepted the yoke of torment and death so that God and his creation, including you, I , and Jesus, himself, might be exonerated. Could we ever thank him enough? I don’t for one second believe he ‘expects’ any thanks—that would be selfish of him. However, I do believe it would do us some soul-searching good to pause occasionally and say to ourselves; “thank you Jesus”.

So, what’s all the hullaballoo about? Basically, its about religion using our God-instilled instincts to demean and control us all for money, and ’empire building’. We have a system of laws which were enacted for purposes of dealing with extremes of selfishness. We don’t need religion teaching us that we must ‘appease’ an angry God. God is Perfect—there’s no way that any or all, collectively, could please or displease him.

Have you noticed how we are continually shifting the blame onto God—we are perpetually admonished by our priests and preachers to beg God to change something. I’d suggest to you right now, God will not and cannot change anything he has loved (created)—everything will play out to its intended completion. We are the ones who must change our attitude, our way of thinking, and our understanding. We must come to the full realization that the Spirit (WILL) of God exists in every particle of energy of which everything is made—I defined that as spirituality. It is only through the acceptance of that singular, like-minded, concept that peace can ever be achieved.

Yes, we are selfish—God made us that way so that we could live and function in his selfish, ever-changing, ever-evolving universe. That is the method God used/uses to demonstrate his Prefect Love through the death of his mirror image, Jesus.

My call for The World-Wide Communion of Spirituality continues—it is our only hope for peace.

THE GOSPEL OF THOMAS–HILARY L HUNT MD

It is very likely that many, maybe most, of you have never heard of The Gospel Of Thomas. In truth, neither had I until about thirty years ago. In my research, I accidently discovered a reference to it, and being inquisitive, I purchase a book, edited by Ron Cameron, titled, The Other Gospels. What I discovered was a rather ‘eye-opening’ history of which I was unaware. It represents part of a cache of Coptic Christian writings found in a cave in 1945 at Nag Hammadi, Egypt. Furthermore, it seems, clearly to predate the Canonical Gospels for two reasons. It appears to be Jesus talking directly to his disciples, with Thomas as the transcriptionist, and more importantly, it contains no mention of Jesus’ Pasion, Crucifixion, Resurrection, etc., as do the four Canonical Gospels. That, of course, implies it was written while Jesus was alive

While first reading it, I was taken aback by some of Jesus’ statements and proclamations. His apparent description of God as being in all things, and being the ‘soul’ of everything, seemed to me to be in stark contrast to the ‘dualistic’ nature of the God which I had been taught in my Roman Catholic upbringing and education. I had always been taught that God was separate from his creation. He resided in Heaven, a ‘place’ somewhere in the sky where he was able to observe everything that went on in his universe. In fact, in the Old Testament, God is described as being very ‘vengeful’ and ‘hostile’ at times. However, he could show ‘mercy’, but one had to beg incessantly, and even ‘bargain’ with God to get it.

Well, also, there was a time when rich people could actually buy God’s mercy’. You know, that seems like a paradox to me because, in one of the Canonical Gospels, Jesus is quoted as saying, “it would be easier for a camel to go through the needle’s eye than for a rich man to get to heaven”. Think about that for a second—the very thing that separates man from God, money, could be used by that same man to buy a ticket into God’s Heaven—hmm. Well, we know, of course, what he really was buying was a clear conscience, while, at the same time, enriching the Vatican coffers which had been depleted by squandering Popes. By the way, for the uninitiated in Roman Catholicism, that ticket was known as an ‘indulgence’. Later on, those tickets (indulgences) were attached to prayers—every prayer in my thick daily missal granted so many days indulgence (reduced time in purgatory) by its reciting.

Certainly, there was never any notion taught to me that God lived in me, or a rat, or a grain of sand, or a flower etc.. It is possible, however, that God, once upon a time, might have lived in snakes, because snakes could actually talk to humans way back when—of course, they can’t now—well, maybe they do, and we just cant understand them. Anyhow, years later, after Jesus’ death, the Apostle, Paul asserted that we are ‘temples of the Holy Spirit’—don’t you just wonder what his understanding of that statement was?—I do. It seems clear to me that likely no one, including Paul, understood what he was saying. I am allowed to say that because roughly three hundred years later, the squabbling Bishops who met in Nicaea, at Emperor Constantine’s request, to form an ‘official Christian (catholic ) Church, certainly didn’t know, and still don’t—they have yet to define the essence of God or the Trinity—I have done both.

It was several years later, while studying particle physics (Quantum Mechanics), that the Gospel of Thomas (Jesus’ direct words), began to ring true. Jesus was instructing them, unequivocally, that everything resided in God, and that God resided in everything. The Gospel of Thomas gave me the ‘Philosophical basis’, and Quantum Mechanics gave me the ‘Scientific basis’ for defining unequivocally, and irrefutably, the essence of God—God Is A Perfect Rational Being. That definition not only allows for, but demands Trinity, and, furthermore, makes a visual understanding of Trinity God possible.

The Gospel Of Thomas clearly shows Jesus’ genius mind at work, disparaging organized religion as being, not only, of no practical value, but rather a major detergent to peace. Instead of being a uniting force, religion sets people against each other—witness the constant turmoil existing among Christians, Muslims and Atheistic Communism. Rather than worshiping and attempting to appease a mythical god, sitting in some ‘ethereal palace’, Jesus commands us to see God in everything in order to find inner peace and communion with God and his creation.

We have to understand that every creature is ‘our friend’ in God. You might object by observing that snakes, ticks, spiders, mosquitos, chiggers etc. bite us—so would bears, wolves, alligators, lions, tigers, etc. kill and eat us. However, we, in turn, do the same to them. The reality is that they, as well as we, have to eat in order to survive. Just as we, they are doing what God designed them to do. When we come to recognize God’s presence in everything, we see clearly that, in reality, all of God’s creatures are feeding off him—we exist in a massive, self-contained and self-sustaining system of perfect rationality, which is God . Simply stated, homo sapiens just happened to be the latest creature to appear in Gods evolutionary plan—wouldn’t you love to know what comes next—I certainly would. However, I might not like being here— very likely, I would be the hunted rather than the hunter. Since the earth is predicted to exist another five billion years or so, that creature , and, maybe, many more are in God’s evolutionary plan.

Jesus ‘exhortations, found in the Gospel of Thomas, continue to be ignored, as they have been since his death—they actually killed him because of them. He was a traitor—his philosophy would have destroyed their power base and eliminated their ‘money-grubbing’ control over their subjects.

Two years ago, I issued a plea for the recognition and acceptance of The World-Wide Communion of Spirituality. That plea is for the recognition and acceptance that the Spirit (Will) of God is imprinted onto every particle of energy of which everything in existence is made. Therefore we, and everything in existence represent a ‘mirror image’ of God—should God be fighting himself? I think not—what do you think?

I have outlined my philosophy, as found in The Gospel Of Thomas, in my two books, Wilderness Cry, and Peace In Spirituality. You could enrich your New Year by their reading with an ‘open mind’.

COMING OF CHRIST-HILARY L HUNT MD

COMING OF CHRIST-Christmas is rapidly approaching. Of course, it represents Christianity’s selected date for celebrating the birth of Jesus. It is not his actual birthday—rather a day chosen in opposition to a pagan celebration. Jesus real birthday has been suggested by historical ‘experts’ to likely be in April or September. Be that as it may, we know the eventuating story of his birth, childhood, public ministry, crucifixion and ascension, and the prediction of his ‘second coming. However, before we can address the ‘second coming of Christ’ we must understand the ‘first coming’. I can see the quizzical expressions on your faces right now—what on earth does he mean?—we know all about the ‘first coming’—we have the Bible. And I would say to you, “not so fast. Maybe a quick historical brush-up would help”.

As you will recall, somewhere along the line, the Hebrews discovered the ‘one true God’. That God was theirs and theirs alone. Because of the disobedience of the first man, Adam, God had banished Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden (Paradise) and committed them to a life of toil by the ‘sweat of their brow’. Later on, the Hebrews entered into pacts with God—they actually had conversations with him. In the last pact, (covenant), God swore that never again would he abandon them. Furthermore he would send them the Messiah who would ‘restore the kingdom’ just for them alone—such was their collective imagination.

By the time Jesus appeared, the Jews had already developed a very corrupt, and self serving, scheme of government, which rewarded those in power, and kept the rest at bay, poor, and basically enslaved. Consequently, the masses longed for the Messiah whom they had been promised.

Jesus possessed a genius mind, dramatically superior to all others. He recognized the universal evil of selfishness, but, more importantly, he saw how the dualistic idea, of God being ‘over here’, and his creation being ‘over there‘, was being used to control the peasant masses— all for power and money. He knew instinctively that nothing in existence could be unless the Spirit of God was present within it. Therefore, the concept of a dualistic God, as envisioned by the Israelites, was dramatically incorrect.

Now, lets address the issue of Jesus’ name. His name is Jesus—not Jesus Christ. The word Christ is derived from Latin and Greek, and is interpreted as King, just as is the word messiah. Remember, in the Old Testament, the Hebrews ‘were promised’ a Messiah (King) who would rule over their entire world in a ‘new paradise’.

When Jesus began his public ministry by proclaiming himself to be ‘the Messiah’, and preaching an heretical gospel (good news) of love, it was a ‘tough gristle’ for many to chew and swallow —they were so imbued with the philosophy of ‘an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth’, both in their societal government, and in their understandings about God. In fact, the King and High Priest couldn’t, and wouldn’t, even try to chew it—it would have poisoned them, and destroyed their ‘power base’ over society. So, they killed him.

After Jesus’ death, his bewildered followers seemed not to know what to think. There seems to be nothing recorded for fifteen years after Jesus’ death, until Paul began writing letters to his followers. As I have expressed in previous writings, I believe Paul got his understanding about Jesus from the very people he was persecuting. By his own admission, he had some sort of emotional reaction while he was riding to persecute them. Once upon a time, such a reaction might/would have been labeled hysteria , but, today, it is known as somatic symptom disorder. In some of his writings he referred to Jesus as Christ Jesus, which means that he recognized Jesus as a Spiritual King. Therefore, the word Christ is a titular reference, just as King David, or as M.D. following my name. I can find no writing as to when Jesus was first referenced as Jesus Christ, rather than Christ Jesus, as Paul did.

If you have not read the Coptic Gospel of Thomas, I highly recommend it. In that gospel, Jesus keeps saying, over and over and over, the exact same thing while using using different words— it was his desperate attempt to get his apostles to understand his teaching. In the clearest statement of all, when his disciples asked him, “when will the Kingdom come?”, he said to them; “It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying, ‘Here it is’, or ‘There it is.’ Rather, the Kingdom of the Father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it.” That statement indicates clearly that Jesus recognized the presence of God’s spirit in everything, including him.

In that same text Jesus told them, “It is I who am the light which is above them all. From me did the All come forth, and unto me did the All extend. Split a piece of wood and I am there. Lift up the stone and you will find me there.”

In proclaiming that he was ‘the light of the world’, Jesus was attempting to dissuade them from their understanding that God was sitting in some palatial heaven in some mysterious whereabouts, while overseeing and over-lording his creation—rather, God is in all creation. That creation, of course, included Jesus, as well as everyone and everything.

Jesus spoke the only ‘truth’— love is all that matters. Jesus certainly had not the foggiest idea of/about Quantum Mechanics (particle physics), which, in my opinion, defines the essence of God, but his genius told him that the Holy Spirit (Will of God, Love of God, Acceptance of God) had to be present in everything or it could not exist.

Jesus readily understood the malicious and cultist nature of religion. He observed how religion was being used by High Priests to bilk the poor peasants of their hard-earned meager existences, under the pretense of ‘appeasing’ an angry God—they were, in fact, appeasing their greed.

Jesus readily recognized that the light of that knowledge must be spread out over the entire world through his apostles. He knew he would be killed for his philosophy, and was hopeful of having them be the ‘spreaders’ of his message. Were they?—not yet, that I can determine. Those who wrote, and re-wrote, and re-wrote, and re-wrote, ad nauseum, the so-called canonical literature we have, the Bible, were not to be dissuaded one bit by Jesus’ heretical teachings. They were, in fact, shocked to learn that Jesus was going to ‘die for them’.

Of, course, as matter of historical fact, the Jews did kill him. The narrative should have ended there, but it didn’t. Those writers were so determined to ‘have it their way’ that they created another narrative—a resurrection, ascension and, above all, a second coming. That wish became so strong that many taught and believed Jesus’s return to be imminent—such was their wishful thinking. It has been only two thousand years or so, and still no coming—so, what’s a few billion years to an eternal God?

Do you think Paul would be surprised to know that?—I suspect he would be flabbergasted. Also, I suspect John Mark, Paul’s side-kick, who wrote the first Gospel would be dismayed also—remember, he quoted Jesus as saying that the end of the world would happen before the current generation (40 years) passed. We will never know what their ‘real’ ideas and understandings were, nor where they came from. Quite obviously, if they came from Jesus’ mouth, he would have to be considered an imposter—I don’t believe that for one second.

If we accept Jesus as real, and I certainly do, then we are forced to accept that his post crucifixion narratives were fabricated by writers biased in their predetermined belief—they simply had to make their longsuffering come to an end. I don’t have the foggiest idea about who the culprits were, and I sincerely doubt that anyone does. It is possible that the answer lies buried in Vatican archives—I have no expectation of us ever being privy to that information.

Seemingly, no one, except possibly John, a little understood and accepted what Jesus told them. It would, in fact, be The Greatest Story Ever Told if we could only hear it straight from Jesus’ mouth.

Based on my definition of the essence of God as ‘a Perfect Rational Being’, coupled with my basic understanding of Particle Physics, the Jesus story as told in the Gospel of Thomas makes perfect sense—it adds absolute clarity to the subject. It also prompted me to write my basic philosophy Book, Wilderness Cry-A Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe. Another book I have written and published is Peace in Spirituality. It represents only one of a myriad of possible extrapolations of that definition. More importantly, it presents an absolute, indisputable, meaning of The Second Coming.

The Second Coming will occur only through the universal awakening of the human consciousness to the presence of the Will Of God, the Holy Spirit, in everything in existence. Then, and only then, will Jesus’ truth, light of the world, shine over all creation—please don’t hold your breath—religion has the human consciousness pinned to the ground.

I continue my call for the recognition and acceptance of, The World-wide Communion of Spirituality, which means that all must understand and accept the concept that the Spirit (Will) of God is necessarily imprinted onto every particle of energy of which everything in existence is made.

REMISS-WILDERNESS CRY-HILARY L HUNT MD

REMISS–this word implies lack of care or concern for duty; negligent. We often hear people make excuses for their seeming ‘lack of concern’, such as, ‘well, I didn’t know it was that important, or I’d have———‘, or ‘she didn’t do her job well because she’s just lazy’. There are at least a million ways someone may be ‘remiss’, but I believe one of the most common is failure to ‘share meaningful’ information with others.

From a personal standpoint, a few years back, I made a startling discovery, and I felt compelled to share it with you in my little book Wilderness Cry. That title belies the book’s contents—it refers to ‘my voice crying out for truth from a wilderness of , mythology, superstition, astrology, ignorance, arrogance, and deceit.

I was born and raised in a one hundred per cent Catholic community, deep in the heart of the ‘Bible belt’, in far western Kentucky. The first eighteen years of my education were in Catholic institutions—I was very indoctrinated in Catholic Dogma and theology. At a very early age I began to quandary some of those doctrines, and as time progressed, so did my list of questions grow—no suitable answers were to be found.

The most fundamental question of all concerned the very nature of God, himself—just who is this biblical God? During sixty five years of intense research and study, I learned that many, many, great thinkers and theologians had asked the same question. Each, in turn, realizing the rather miniscule image painted of the biblical God, had attempted to ‘define the essence’ of the ‘real God’—all failed.

At age seventy, I took a course in Quantum Mechanics (particle physics)—there I made startling discoveries. Every gravid object in existence is made up of tiny particles of energy with various identities. Each of its kind is identical to its counterparts. Furthermore, each is perfect in both form and function. Not any one of them can be further subdivided, nor can any one of them change or be changed. Therefore, they exist in eternity. Even though they make up all of the finite material objects in existence, they, themselves, are infinite and eternal. Wow!!! Are we not speaking of God? Did the lights not just come on? Do we not now know who God is? I do.

God is a Perfect Rational Being. That ‘essential definition’ solves all mysteries. More importantly, it refutes all religion and all myths associated with religion.

I would have been terribly remiss by not sharing that information with you. All your open-minded questions are answered there.

REMORSE vs GUILT–HILARY L HUNT MD

REMORSE vs GUILT–I sincerely doubt the validity of the interchangeability of these two words. However, I oftentimes hear them applied in actual or inferred reversed circumstances. I believe ‘remorse’ implies a personal inner sorrow and/or regret for having done or said something that hurts someone else. ‘Guilt’, on the other hand, implies a need for punishment or retribution for some action or statement. You might ask what difference does it make, and I would say that in most circumstances, ‘none’, except for proper understanding and communication.

There is a big difference, though, when it comes to the fields of psychology and morality. As a Catholic Christian child, I was taught two types of ‘Act of Contrition’ prayers. The ‘Act of Perfect Contrition’ tells God that we are are sorry (remorseful) for our sins because they offend him ‘who art all good and deserving of all our love’. The ‘Act of Imperfect Contrition’, on the other hand, tells God that we are sorry for our sins, ‘because we dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell’. In other words, one Act expresses pure sadness, sorrow, and remorse, while the other expresses guilt with fear of ‘impending punishment’.

From a psychological standpoint, I believe the so-called act of Perfect Contrition is a sham if one has ever been indoctrinated in the other—it would be impossible to express ‘perfect remorse and sorrow’ if one knew that ‘retribution’ was a possibility—you would be attempting to ‘lie’ to yourself and to God. So what does that do—it creates a sense of greater guilt—the dog keeps chasing his tail. So, what’s the point?

Clearly, the point is the severe psychological damage inflicted by such schizoid moral teachings. Ultimately, it instills in us a permanent sense of guilt with resultant impending punishment. When done in pre-rational age children, their subconscious minds are contaminated forever. When that contamination reaches a certain point, anxiety of unknown origin besets them. The typical initial defense to that anxiety is ‘an air of perfection’—work the hardest, excel the most, be perfect in/at everything. That attitude, which is subconscious, demands effort above and beyond ‘normal’—as the demand grows, so does the energy expenditure, both physical and mental (emotional). If and when it reaches extreme levels, a subconscious feeling of ‘helplessness’ sets in—we cant keep up the pace—we become depressed. Way too often, that depression reaches extreme levels—we no longer can cope—we give up—it’s over—we’re gone from this life forever.

That exact scenario prevailed in Medieval Europe. People were being, first tortured, and then burned to death, by the Inquisition for being normal—such was the idiocy of the Church. People were being declared ‘witches’. Anyone accused of being a witch was automatically convicted, and anyone who attempted a defense for a suspected witch was automatically convicted also. An official inquisition manual, created by Heinrich Cramer and Jacob Springer, The Malleus Maleficarium, carries the official imprimatur of Pope Innocent V111, and is divided into three sections—1 defines the existence of witches: 2- how they operate, and: 3- their remedy. The net result was an entire society so ‘guilt ridden’ as to prompt G. Rattray Taylor, in his very astute book, Sex in History, to describe Medieval Europe as “One Giant Cesspool of Psychosis”.

Rational beings, most likely, should experience feelings of remorse/sorrow for offending someone. Many times, our legal system, which was developed and sustained by Judeo-Christianity, would ascribe guilt, and demand punishment for such offenses.

I would suggest to you that the entire system from which Judaism, all Christianity, as well as Islam was derived is based one hundred percent on false premises. All of that stems from a very ‘false notion’ of God. Not one of, those religions, nor any other, has ever been willing or able to define their God’s essence. I have, and my definition soundly refutes all religions known to me. In my book Wilderness Cry, I define God as ‘A Perfect Rational Being’—an irrefutable definition. In addition, I carry that definition to the point of refutation of anything and everything pertaining to the Abrahamic religions. A complete explanation is included. In Peace in Spirituality, I carry just one of a myriad of ramifications of that definition to its ‘logical conclusion’.

I might add that I am happy to announce that Wilderness Cry has been chosen by Online Book Club as Book Of The Day for 12-1-20, and Book of the Month for the entire month of December, 2020.

The point of this presentation today is to make clear how subtle differences can, and oftentimes do, have major implications. We must always be careful of ‘what we say’ and ‘how we say it’.

In the natural world of irrationality, there exists an ‘inborn’ understanding—survival of the fittest—the biggest, strongest, always win and are in charge. There is a ‘natural hierarchy’ established usually by strength alone. Sadly, in the ‘rational world’ of humans, that hierarchy, frequently, seems to be established by ‘cunning and deceit’.—should they feel ‘remorse’ or ‘guilt’, or possibly both? I have observed that most feel nothing unless they get caught—then they become very ‘remorseful, not because they feel sorrow for their victims, but, rather, because they got caught, and they know they are ‘guilty’—that’s when postured remorse can and should be acclaimed as ‘sham’. What do you think?
