CONSEQUENCES-HILARY L HUNT MD

Consequences– seems like a strange title for a blog post, or does it? Please allow me to explain. Knowing the ultimate implications of consequences is undoubtedly the ‘most important understanding’ we can possibly have. I can hear you now saying to yourself, ‘what is that simpleton talking about?’. And I answer by saying, ‘listen-up and I will explain post-haste’.

The word consequence means ‘the effect or result of an action or condition’. So, you may say, ‘what’s that got to do with anything?’—I would say, ‘everything’. The primary question, then, is ‘when did consequences begin?’. The obvious answer is, ‘with the beginning of time’—time, of course, is a measure of ‘change’. So how and when did ‘time begin?’.

Once upon a time, there was no time; only eternity. However there is that Perfect Rational Being who exists in eternity. With its ‘Perfect Intellect’ it perceived of converting (demonstrating) its perfect energy by the creation of Perfect Little Particles of itself, known as quanta (pleural for quantum). A quantum is the smallest particle of energy (matter) which can not be subdivided. That Perfect Intellect perceived of several varieties of those quanta to which we humans have given names such as leptons, bosons, quarks, etc. Each of those particles is identical and indistinguishable from its counterparts. Collectively, they represent all of the ‘bricks’ from/of which every material thing in this universe is made.

We human have dubbed that Perfect Rational Being (Prime Mover) by hundreds of different names—the most familiar in modern times likely are God, Allah, Yahweh, Buddha and Brahma. I know of no human dead or alive who recognized that Prime Mover as ‘A Perfect Rational Being’ except me and Jesus. And I can hear you again screaming, yelling, tearing your hair our at my extreme brashness. All I calmly ask is, ‘show me another’—you can’t. Now back to the subject at hand.

Having visualized those perfect quanta along with a ‘performance task’ for each class, that Perfect Intellect said ‘hmm, I love that’. So with its Perfect Will (the Will of God, The Holy Spirit), it said, ‘I will those quanta to be Perfect and stay Perfect—I “love them; I choose them; I put my ‘brand of Perfection’ on each. Instantly, they came into being and simultaneously ‘time began’. Immediately, those quanta ‘went to work’ doing perfectly what they were created and commissioned to do, and guess what, they’re still doing it.

Of course, as each performed its task, something happened—there was a consequence. They rapidly formed Hydrogen and Helium atoms. As those massive gas clouds gathered, their density increased and a ‘star was born’—-there was light—another consequence. Eventually, the universe was filled with celestial bodies of all sizes, shapes and descriptions as we know them today—each a direct consequence of what went (happened) before—always in prefect fashion—a perfect consequence.

Now, fast-forward a few billion years. The sequences and consequences had resulted in the generation of ‘living’ things—that is, things that could reproduce themselves, and that they did. Initially, those living organisms seemingly had no intelligence of their own—they could, and did, react to stimuli—always in ‘perfect fashion’—a perfect consequence.

Now, fast-forward again—intelligent beings were consequentially generated and in perfect fashion. Cumulatively, and individually, each and every one of those distinct rational beings progressed on its own path of ‘perfect consequential development’ to being the ultimate individual it became at its death. No two could possibly be the same because no two could possibly have experienced each and every identical stimulus.

Somewhere, sometime, along the way, those intelligent beings noticed considerable differences in each other. They didn’t/couldn’t agree on a ‘code of civil conduct’—the reason for that, of course was each had different ideas about what was proper—each was a different ‘consequence’. Eventually, as their numbers and differences increased, they split into diverse tribes/nations and did develop rules of conduct—a direct consequence of intelligent ‘common sense’. They established ‘leaders’ with names such as Pharos and Kings.

One such tribe was the Israelites who the Bible tells us were enslaved by the Egyptians. The Israelites were stricken with a famine, and consequently, were forced to purchase grain from the Egyptians. During their forty year enslavement, a new leader named Moses was born. Mind you, the Israelites has already ‘recognized’ a singular God. They knew that when bad things happened, it was the consequence of their misdeeds. Likewise, when things were going well, they had God’s favor—consequently, they best behave.

As luck would have it, Moses grew to manhood, murdered someone, and was forced to live in exile for many years. However, upon his return, somehow (the Bible never made that clear to me), he and his brother Aaron assumed control of the Israelite tribe. They petitioned the Pharos to release them from slavery so they could go to the ‘promised land’. Of course, the Pharos refused, so Moses petitioned his God to send plagues on the Egyptians. After the tenth plague, the Pharos relented and allowed the Israelites to depart—a direct consequence of torment from God and fear of more of the same.

The Israelites escaped with many sequential and consequential events occurring on their journey, Eventually, as they wandered aimlessly and helpless in the desert, many of the tribesmen lost faith in Moses leadership and even his God. As a consequence, they began worshiping idols, and doing all sorts of illicit things. Moses and Aaron scolded them to no avail. Moses was no dumb-bell (after all he has weaseled his way into being leader, so he sat down and wrote out what he considered to be good ‘rules of governance—the 10 Commandments. when Moses presented the commandments to them, the Israelites just laughed at him and went right on their merry way—Moses was not happy at all with that consequence. So, in disgust, he threw the tablets upon which the rules were written to the ground, breaking them—a physical consequence.

Up to the mountain he goes again. He re-writes them on new stone tablets. This time he presents them as ‘Gods Commandments’ with warnings of any breeches having ‘dire’ consequences. Officially, ‘sin’ was born.

So we fast-forward several thousand years to Jesus. By the time he came along, the Jews had utilized that ‘sin’ complex to make a triple fortune for the King, High Priest and Sanhedrin—the poor peasants were just ‘out of luck’. Jesus recognized the ‘hoax’ being perpetrated on his people as a consequence of that ‘sin complex’ abuse. Not only that, but for the first time in history, Jesus openly de-vowed the nature of the Jewish God and offered an entirely different understanding of God to his followers. Of, course he was convicted as a traitor and, as a consequence, he was killed.

Now, fast-forward again 300 years. During that hiatus, as a consequence of total lack of unanimity of understanding of who Jesus really was, what he really said, and, more importantly, what he ‘meant, literally every village had its own ‘bishop’. Not only that but, literally, each of them had different ideas about the ‘Jesus thing’. Consequently, instead of working and producing for the ruling Romans, they were bickering and fighting among themselves. As a consequence, the official Church which Constantine commissioned them to form, put themselves in total hierarchal control—the ‘Sin Police’ were recommissioned. We know the rest of the story, so lets get to the punch-line.

Sin is a manufactured process aimed at controlling the masses—since Moses’ time, it has been that way. What no one, seemingly, has understood is one, plain, simple fact—everything in this universe is perfect. Every murderer, rapist, thief, or social ‘undesirable’ of any kind is a ‘perfect consequence’ of all the consequences that went before in his/her life. God knows no ‘sin’. Everything (quanta) God created is perfect—everything in existence is the ‘perfect consequence’ of each and every stimulus applied to it from its inception. Therefore, we as rationale, civilized beings must re-orient our understanding of our Perfect Supreme Being. We must know that God, with his ‘Perfect Intelligence’ knew in advance exactly how each of us would eventuate—and through ‘no fault of our own’.

Yes, when we are hurt by someone, we consequently feel anger—a ‘normal’ human reaction. A more rational reaction would be a feeling of ‘sorrow ‘ for the offender. As a consequence of that ‘understanding’, we, as a rational society must come to grips with this reality—we, each are the direct consequence of every stimulus applied to us. Having said that, we as a society must have order and civility. Accordingly, people who breech our major societal rules ‘must be taken out of society’ until, and if, they can be ‘reprogrammed’, and made fit again. We have been, and still are, exerting our efforts in the wrong way—consequently, things are getting worse by the day.

The proper course of action stems as a consequence of proper understandings. 1-a proper understanding of the essence of our creator, and 2-a proper understanding of how our psyches are developed. The immediate consequence of lack of understanding of God’s essence is cultist religion which feigns appeasement of that God, but which, instead, creates feelings of guilt and hostility in people. All religions seem to be based on the ‘false narrative’ of that ‘humanistic God’. The direct consequence of religion is guilt and rebellion, both of which create havoc in society.

We must expend our resources in the training thousands of clinical psychologists specifically trained in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. Most importantly, we must quit sending everyone on a ‘guilt-trip’ through ‘cultist religion’. We need ‘Spirituality’ which is the understanding that the ‘Spirit of God’ Is imprinted on everything and everyone. God is Perfect—God cannot possibly be hurt or pleased. God is Perfect Love (perfect acceptance). God loves everyone, criminals and all—he cannot possibly love one more than another. The consequences of that would be an ‘Imperfect God’—not possible.

I have elaborated those concepts endlessly in my two books, Wilderness Cry, and Peace in Spirituality. I implore you to read and study each for the consequences of ‘peace of mind’ and ‘peace in society’.

FAITH vs. RELIGION-PART 2–HILARY L HUNT MD

Due to a glitch in navigating WordPress yesterday, I had to cut short my comments—my apologies. Today, I will continue with my conversation about faith and how it relates to Religion.

To begin with, just what is ‘faith’? Strictly stated, faith is the acceptance of something as being true without concrete evidence of that truth. In addition, there are two basic kinds of faith, ‘implicit’ and ‘explicit’.

A common example of ‘explicit faith’ would be a warranty on a new automobile—from past experience and hearsay, we know that manufacturers typically stand good for their stated warranty. So, we are legitimate in having explicit faith that they will again.

A common example of ‘implicit’ faith is demonstrated in our willingness to believe that when we greet on an airplane, it will take us to our destination safely. We know from historical experience that commercial airline crashes in the US are rare. However, we are willing to ‘take that’ chance under the umbrella of ‘implied faith’ that all will be well.

Understandably, you may say ,’what’s that got to do with God and religion?’—and I would say ‘everything’, and here’s why. Those, among both the ancients and relative neophytes, who have concocted religions, have done so based on their version of ‘explicit faith’. In other words, God has ‘revealed’ to each of then a set of absolutes. So what then? Gradually those ‘absolutes’ demand interpretation and in that process of ‘implied faith’, a gazillion different religions have been formed (created). In truth, every human who ever existed has had a different faith and a different religion.

You may object, saying ‘I know twenty people who go to Saint ‘so and so’ Catholic church, and twenty more who go to ‘such and such’ Baptist Church, and so on and on and on. That may be absolutely true—-they go to a certain church, but no two of them have the same identical ‘faith or religion’

The reason for all that is very simple indeed—each of them knows (visualizes) a different God, because as I stated yesterday, no one before me has defined the ‘essence of God’. Therefore, not one of them knows the God about whom they think—each of those billions of gods are pure myths—they are like Santa—each similar but different, and all mythical.

It is impossible to know about any entity or concept without first defining its essence. Jesus didn’t know ‘particle physics’, but in his brilliance he recognized that the Spirit of God pervaded all existences—otherwise nothing could be. He set about to enlighten (Christ) the world about the universality and Perfect Love of God—that activity got him killed. He knew it would, but seeing himself as the ‘sacrificial lamb’, he willingly chose an ignominious death so that the world might be ‘enlightened’ (I am the light of the world) to the truth of God’s essence—Perfect Rationality.

It seems very doubtful if anyone either understood his message, or if they did understand, they were willing to accept it. Remember, The Jews killed him for treason—teaching anything contrary to the Jewish religion was treason. Guess what—the formation of so-called Christianity followed in the Jews footsteps. They set themselves up in hierarchal arrangement. I guess one might call it ‘trickle-down power. Regardless how one may perceive it, the result was/is the same—power, control, money.

So what are the implications of defining God’s essence as Perfect Rationality. Very simply, something perfect cannot be changed. Time is a measure of change. Since God is perfect he exists in eternity, a state of no change nor time. God cannot be hurt. God cannot be pleased. God cannot possibly ‘change his mind’ about anything. So all of this praying, sacrificial ritual, begging God to change his mind, etc.. could, in fact be considered blasphemous. However, God’s Perfect Love precludes any possibility of ‘retribution’ on his part.

In fact, out only justifiable prayer, while not expected by God, but to keep us humble and appreciative of his love, is a great big ‘Thank you God for your loving acceptance of me , a selfish sinner’.

So where does religion fit in? My belief; it is the most major deterrent to tranquility and peace that the world has ever known. It is also the most ‘monstrous’ money machine the world has ever known.

I mentioned my two books about these subjects yesterday. I will attempt to insert info about them.

IMMUNITY-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngIMMUNITY-This seems to be a very appropriate topic for today’s discussion. I presume that most people have a cursory understanding of immunity. In the field of biological science, it refers to the ability of an organism to resist infection from bacterial or viral agents through the development of antibodies to those specific agents. Those antibodies are usually developed from either  previous infection with a specific organism, or by being exposed to killed versions of the organism through a process of inoculation with its vaccine.

Vaccines have been developed and deployed over the years to protect us from the consequences of devastating diseases. Some of the more common are the famous DPT (Diphtheria, Pertussis [Whooping Cough] and Tetanus [Lock Jaw], Small Pox, Polio, Measles, Influenza, Pneumonia, and Shingles. An exhaustive list would include Typhoid Fever and Tropical diseases. Some inoculations confer permanent immunity, while others such as Tetanus require periodic boosters in order to maintain protection.

I can so vividly remember the shouts of joy that went up from our entourage of doctors, nurses and medical students when, while we were making grand rounds, someone came running down the hallway and announced that Dr. Jonas Salk had developed a vaccine for Polio. I was a junior medical student at St. Louis University in 1957 and understood well the implications of such a development. Five years later, when I entered the orthopedic training program of the prestigious Willis C. Campbell Clinic in Memphis, TN. I was literally shocked to see the multitude of cripples resulting from that devastating disease. It was such a relief knowing that our children and future generations of children would be spare such torment.

IMG_0082In our legal system, immunity is granted for various reasons— usually that immunity means someone does not have to testify.

Currently, the entire world is stymied in the throes of the COVID-19 virus pandemic. As yet there is no vaccine for this virus—neither is there any known ‘natural immunity’ in society at large. World economies have been shut down, and millions have died from the infection. Most deaths have occurred in the  elderly or otherwise medically compromised young.

Much speculation and theory has been promulgated in an attempt to ‘right the ship’ and get our economies going again. Of course, what the world needs is ‘natural immunity’. That may be achieved in two ways—one, a vaccine—the other, by allowing the younger people, who can better tolerate the disease’s effects,  to become infected, thereby bestowing a natural immunity in society at large. Theoretically then, the vires could not get a foot-hold in society again. The problem with that approach may be similar to influenza—the COVID-19 virus may mutate and require annual or periodic immunizations. Currently, we have neither—natural immunity nor a vaccine. So, we are, indeed, in dire straits.

That same philosophy could and should be applied to the world-wide ‘virus’ of selfish religion. It is eating away at the fabric of humanity—it always has. The death, destruction and torment, both mental and physical, is astounding. Just take a casual glance at our world—nothing but violence and threats of violence perpetually. And why ?—religion and ideology.

Everyone has a different God (virus), and it is determined to destroy every other God. The reason is clear—no one knows who God is.

Three years ago, I published a little book defining the  essence of God. I recognized that the only way to develop a vaccine from religion was to recognize and identify the culprit. In Wilderness Cry- A Scientific and Philosophical Approach to Understanding God and the Universe, I define the essence of God—God is a Perfect Rational Being. Thus far, no one has stepped forward to attempt to refute that definition—it is, in fact,  irrefutable.

IMG_1065Two years ago, I began writing a thesis on how Peace may be achieved. Peace in Spirituality was published less than a year ago. It outlines all of the causes of hostilities in the world. Furthermore, it shows conclusively the absolute only pathway to peace.

Simultaneous to beginning preparation of Peace in Spirituality, on this blog-site, I made a call for the understanding and acceptance of The World-wide Communion of Spirituality—that call is being made on a perpetual basis. Will it be heeded?—likely not. The ‘virus’ is running rampant—no immunizing vaccine has been promulgated. It is available everywhere. Will you partake and help develop a ‘natural immunity’ in our society? I sincerely hope so.

PALM SUNDAY- Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngPALM SUNDAY-Today, world-wide, Christians are celebrating  Palm Sunday.  It is the day which marks Jesus’ heroic and triumphant enter into Jerusalem. It is known as Palm Sunday because the citizens attending the event cut palm branches and spread them on the path before him. Have you ever wondered why they did that?–I have. Also I have wondered just who all those people were. In addition, I have chucklingly thought what today might have been called if Jesus had approached the temple in Paducah, Kentucky in July—Maple Sunday, Oak Sunday, Ash Sunday, Willow or Birch Sunday? I’m not wise-cracking—I’m serious.

The Catholic Christians do, in fact, make a big to-do about the palm. They march in a procession of sorts with palm branches over their shoulders. The palm is then taken home and the artistic ones among us  weave all sorts of crosses and Christian emblems out of it before it dries, Other less fanciful may simply double it on itself and stick it behind a crucifix or holy picture hanging on the wall. The left over palm is saved and burned to ashes which are applied to penitents foreheads the following Ash Wednesday. The point is, the palm is revered as having some special significance.

IMG_0082I suppose the question remains why was the palm spread on the ground in the first place and secondly, why were there so many people in attendance. In the first instance, it is likely that the dirt road was muddy, and the palm provided a clean, dry pathway. Jesus, you will recall was riding an ass and would not been concerned with muddy roads. His apostles and close followers, however,  were walking and most likely would have greatly appreciated the cover. Now to the second consideration—why so many cheering people? Jesus spent his entire teaching career in the shadows, out of the lime-light so as not to rattle the ire of the king, high priest and elders.

It seems likely to me that there two sets of people in attendance that day—one set were Jesus’ true followers—the others were those who sensed a ‘big showdown’ and didn’t want to miss the show. Jesus, himself, was steady as a rock—he was on a mission.

When time for the show arrived, the crowd was ready. Jesus had influenced many followers, but it seems obvious to me that most of them, including his apostles did not comprehend his message—they scattered like sheep running in terror from a wolf—seems to me like they still are. The bulk of the Jews present knew Jesus was teaching heresy and were quite willing to sentence him to crucifixion—the death mode reserved for treason. His friends were terrified—only one of them attended.

IMG_1065I spoke of Jesus’ heroic and triumphant entry into Jerusalem. It was certainly heroic because Jesus, undoubtedly, had witnessed many crucifixions—he understood what a horrific death it was, but he also knew why his mission was so important and necessary—-the salvation of the entire universe(s) lay before him. It was indeed triumphant, because he had overcome his fear—he was now steadfast and ready for what lay ahead. His apostles seemed not to have a clue—to them it was just another stroll in the park up until the last minute.

So now that Covid-19 has put a damper on most of the ecclesiastical blame-game, penitents can be a little more detached  from the distraction of  all the ritual, and be a little more attached to the real meaning  of Palm Sunday.

Yes, we all are selfish sinners—yes, so is every existence. Yes, genius Jesus saw that. He knew that our God and mirror image had allowed us and all creation to be that way for one very specific reason—so he could be and show his perfect love—-Jesus was his agent. Every other consideration in my estimation is not only superfluous but, rather, distracting from the real truth and understanding.

Thank you Lord God, Jesus and Holy Ghost (will of God). Amen.

EVIL-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngEVIL- Just what is evil? I suspect if you asked a thousand people, most would reply that its something bad—many might say its something sinful. An astute few might reply its the opposite of good. So just what is it that makes something evil in our eyes. Genesis refers to the ‘tree of knowledge of good and evil’—what does that mean?

It seems to me that  evil was identified as anything distasteful or harmful to us as individuals and more generally to society at large. On the other hand  good was identified as anything enjoyable, tasteful, beneficial, pleasurable to us individually, and again more generally to society at large.

So what is the difference between evil and sin—both seem to carry the connotation of bad. I’m a little bit confused about the difference. Obviously, in the Garden of Eden, evil was equilibrated with sin—it displeased God. Not only that, it got Adam and Eve’s butts kicked right out of Paradise forever. And please don’t forget about that ‘talking snake’—she was doomed to crawl on the ground and eat dirt forever, Furthermore, its quite obvious, she also got her tongue split so she could no longer talk—-she could only hiss. That hiss, of course, is evil—-it says ‘I’ll bite you’. Curious too, that snake had been evil all along—remember its the one who tricked Eve into sinning by disobeying God.

Now just think about that for a moment. The Bible infers that all the animals were lovie-dovie with each other. Not only that but everything in Paradise was perfect— so how, why, and when did the snake become evil? What ever possessed the snake to ‘turn against God’?

IMG_0082Well, as far as I can determine, the Bible doesn’t tell us that. However I’m left to believe from all that story that God actually created both god and evil. Scream, tear your hair, shriek in horror, call me a heretic, a blasphemer, whatever—-how else can it be?

Here’s what I perceive. The Garden of Eden story is a fable dreamed up by some ‘well meaning’ person, ignorant of any scientific knowledge, who was attempting to understand what he observer in the real world around him at the time.

In previous communication, I have suggested the genesis of sin—it was Moses ‘last ditch’ effort at controlling his masses—sick God on them. Those commandments were God’s orders and any breech was sin. He, however, never attempted to explain how the snake became ‘infected’—-maybe he hoped no one would notice—somebody did.

Also, I have shown repeatedly how God made only one creation—the tiny energy particles of which everything in physical existence is made. God’s perfect intellect would certainly allow him to know and see clearly the consequences of those particle’s behavior—an entire universe of evil—selfishness. 

Now you know God—he is Perfect—he knows everything—he has a reason (rationality) for everything. Well, what on earth could his reason be for making such a great big evil mess? Seems pretty clear to me–Jesus. God had to show his perfect love. The genius Jesus, our brother and mirror image of God was the instrument. He knew his relationship to God. He recognized his responsibility—he shouldered it dutifully. He demonstrated God’s perfect love that we and all creation may be reunited with our God some day.

So we have all sorts of breeches of Moses commandments and we have been instructed to call them sin, In reality, each one of those breeches are distasteful or hurtful in some way to us—-not to God.  If Moses interpretation of evil was equilibrated with sin, what about all the other evils that bring us torment—what about tornados, hurricanes, sand storms, earthquakes, floods, Covid-19? They are extremely hurtful and distasteful to us.  Is there a philosophical difference between  one person committing murder and nature committing billions of murders—-I don’t think so—its a matter of our perception. The infractions of the Ten Commandments are things society can address—-basically always have since Moses time. We can inflict punishing retribution legally—-that was/is our societal decision. Many of you may not be aware of the fact that Moses, himself, was a murderer—he never got punished for it—he hadn’t made the rules yet. In fact, he rose up to be leader of the Israelites.

IMG_1065So please take note—everything has a selfish (evil) existence and everything has a ‘once in a lifetime’ existence. Every living thing lives only once—every tornado, earthquake, hurricane etc. has only one existence—and each of those existences is very selfish—each is satisfying a God-given need.

So it seems clear that whoever wrote Genesis clearly failed to see the ‘other side of the coin’. God created only good (perfect particles of energy) but he allowed them to produce both good and evil that he might show his Perfect Love through Jesus. 

As I have said many, many times before, our only justifiable prayer is a great big thank you Lord God, Jesus and Holy Ghost. Amen.

WHY WE BE-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngHave you ever wondered why you are your own singular person , or why another person can be so different from you? Undoubtedly, most people ask themselves and others that exact same question over and over again without even realizing it. How often we hear someone (anyone) say, ‘I just don’t understand why/how so and so thinks or does this or that’. I doubt any conversation could go on five minutes without similar statements being made. The answer to all those queries is a simple, personality development—and just what does that mean?

It would be nice if  personality development  could be explained in a few words—it can’t. It would take volumes and volumes to explore all the intricacies involved. However a brief intelligible overview is possible—hopefully that would help alleviate some of the misunderstanding, and bewilderment we experience on a minute to minute basis in our daily lives. Hopefully it would give insight into why we each are different, and, simultaneously, help us be more accepting (loving) of each other. So lets give it a try.

First off, each of us came ready equipped  with our inherited genetic make-up. That includes our basic physique, our temperament, our basic IQ (rationality), and our sex—just to name a few. Those basic qualities equip us to experience stimuli and to react to stimuli. That process begins in-utero and ends at death—in between those two terminals, each of us is being changed on a moment to moment basis as we react to each stimulus. Early on, those changes are rapid and frequent—we’ve never had that experience before. So what do we do with each new stimulus—we react in some fashion—furthermore, we store that reaction information in our subconscious so we IMG_0082will automatically react to that similar stimulus in an identical way. Most of that ‘reaction information’ was generated and stored in a very immature mind (rationality) because it was generated before we were able to make rational decisions. Thereby, we are pre-programed with much reaction information which may be irrational. Reaction responses of all types are generated and stored. The quality of that information is directly related to the quality of the stimulus. In other words, our family attitudes, pre-school teachers, baby sitters, all of our contacts impart attitudinal stimuli to which we react.

No two of us are exposed to the same identical stimulus, but if we were, we would react somewhat differently because we started with different ‘tools’. So depending upon the nature and desirability  of the stimulus, our subconscious is programed one way or another—all too frequently obtuse to societally accepted norms. As we reach the ‘age of reason’ we automatically and predictably react to a stimulus in a certain way but we don’t know why—our base operating system  was installed before we were rational.

As we go through life experiencing millions of stimuli daily, we are reacting according to the dictates of our immature operating system—each reaction generates a tiny change in our personality. Our basic attitudes about literally everything are established and further entrenched as we go through life, and all of them grounded in attitudes established before we became rational—its a never ending process in this life.

Of course, after we reach the age of reason, every action we take is dictated by our rational conscious intellect which always has to choose what it considers the better of two choices—those considerations are grounded in our subconscious, and each of our subconscious is dramatically different from the next. Accordingly each of us sees things with different attitudes.

Nowhere that I have observed this attitudinal difference to be greater than in the area of religion and/or politics. Most every  one of us have been pre-programmed in both arenas. It is possible to change the ideas we were programmed with, but it usually takes a lot of education, observation and soul-searching to do so.

Literally everyone has hang-ups, that is thing or circumstances we avoid, or are attracted to excessively. We all have fears, anxieties, or obsessions and we don’t know why. I can tell you from my medical experience, the only method I’m aware of permanently eliminating those hang-ups is through the  process of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. That involves sessions of interacting verbally with the therapist. IMG_1065Typically those sessions are one hour each and on a weekly basis for about a year. During those sessions, the therapist skillfully guides the patient, through conversation, right back to the time when the irrational decision was made—the patient is now face to face with culprit—a rational decision is now made and, bingo, like turning on a light switch, that hang-up is eliminated forever.

Therein lies my disdain for our legal system which is based primarily on the old Jewish concept of ‘an eye foe an eye’. No one is born a criminal—they all develop that way through their basic personality programming. Most of them could be ‘reprogrammed’ through the process of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and made into useful, stable, functioning citizens. Rather than building more jails, we should be redirecting our resources to training and paying many more psychotherapists.

Ultimately before any meaningful change can be made, we have to change the subconscious of the entire world—we must become like-minded about the ‘nature of God ‘and ‘spirituality’. More than two years ago, I started my call for the World-wide Communion of Spirituality.  Will it ever be heeded—not as long as the world is fragmented with irrational religion.

I am absolutely convinced that Jesus understood that underlying concept—he was a super-genius—he condemned no one—he said love (acceptance) was the only answer. He was a heretic—so they killed him—he accepted each of us unequivocally. So how should we react—by begging him to accept us more? I think our only legitimate action/reaction is a great big thank you Jesus.

I have elucidated these and many, many more concepts in my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. Please see the attached Press Release and video trailers created by Publisher Covenant Books.

SACRIFICE-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSACRIFICE- now here’s a word that imparts a feeling of dread and drudgery, and well it should. How many times in our daily lives we are called to sacrifice our time, energy, talents and money for others. Most often it is for our family members, but frequently it may be for neighbors, friends or even total strangers. The question is ‘why do we do that?’. One might answer in various ways—sense of duty, sympathy, empathy (do unto others….). Regardless of the exact reason or attitude, sacrifice is always done because of one basic value and that is  love.

Love is the eternal joy of  acceptance we experience in knowing we have helped someone in need, whatever that need may be. We all, in one way or another, tend to be sacrificial in our attitude toward others—some of us more readily willing than others. I seems from a psychological standpoint that the easier life has been for us the less urgency we feel to sacrifice for others. Some might consider that to be  selfish and, indeed, many times it might be. However, I suspect that more often it is due to lack of awareness—if you haven’t experienced it, you may not appreciate it. So I suppose we could say that difficulties in life can be chastening.

IMG_0082So what’s my point—don’t allow yourself to get caught in the trap of judgmentalism. Just because a person may seem to you to be insensitive, it may not be the case at all. Just because you as a specific individual may think of yourself as being extremely self-sacrificing, never allow yourself to be critical of other’s seeming disregard. Remember, all of your sacrificial activity  carries with it a trail of selfishness—you get sense of self-satisfaction. Be careful not to let yourself be perceived as a do-gooder or, worse yet, holier than thou.

In the universe of religion, I have observed two basic forms of sacrifice. The Catholics and their ‘near mimickers’, through their priests, offer sacrifice directly to God just as the Jewish High Priest did. That sacrifice, of course is intended to appease God and cause him to think more kindly of us—we become more holy and hopefully more likely to attain heaven. The non-sacrificial Christians seem to think of  their sacrificial good works as storing up Brownie points so they will get a higher place in heaven. Does selfishness get any worse than to take it right to heaven?

Of course, all of that thinking is reasonable because of the way we all have been indoctrinated. We all have been taught to think of heaven as a place—in reality, a new Paradise where we will all be happy running around laughing and talking—greeting aunt Susie and uncle Joe—might even run into grandpa. There’s one thing for certain though—those who just barely make it through the gate will be so far away from God as to get only an occasional glimpse of him—maybe once a month.

Now we all know its been almost two thousand years since Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice. He was suppose to come right back and set up this utopian paradise immediately after ascending into heaven—he had to get cleaned up first. At least that’s what the know-it-all  Paul told us—and he got his information directly from God—not sure exactly how. If we can believe anything in the Bible, that’s what he said.  He scolded people for leading ordinary lives  getting married, working, having kids etc. He told them they were wasting their time. He told them to ‘put on a holy face’ and get ready for Jesus—he was coming back, maybe tomorrow.

Its quite obvious that someone got their wires crossed  terribly bad. Now here’s what I think happened. After Jesus’ death, there was mass confusion about who he was, what he represented, why he died and what was to happen next. At the very least, he was recognized as the Messiah. Since the Jews had always expected the Messiah to restore Paradise, they had to make it happen in their minds. They knew Jesus was dead—they saw it happen. So what then? What happened to the Savior? Were they wrong in their recognition?—he had to be the one.

In order to make their wishes come true, Jesus had to rise from the dead and ascend into heaven and then ‘come back’ to restore the Kingdom. The “talk on the street’ was so florid and self-convincing that it instantly became ‘fact’. Paul couldn’t understand why those Jews were willing to sacrifice themselves to his torment. So, he inquired why they were willing to accept such aggravation. Their explanation was so convincing that Paul had a hysterical fit—it scared the wits out of him. Hence his explanation of how he came by his information—he didn’t know whether he was ‘in the body or out of the body’. I believe he was simply terrified to think that he had been tormenting God himself—-couldn’t get no scarier than that—tormenting God?

IMG_1065My take is simply that ‘its all wrong’. My God is Perfect Rationality. He/she/it exists in eternity. Eternity is a state if being where there can be no change (time). God, being perfect, cannot possibly be pleased or hurt—allowing such would expose an imperfection. Jesus was the ‘only’ sacrifice of consequence. Jesus was genius—he saw the universal evil of selfishness—he recognized that the Spirit of God was in everything including him—he saw that in order for God to show his ‘perfect love’ to the world, he, Jesus must die in atonement for all the evil in the universe. He did so graciously but not without great fear and anguish—I can’t imagine such. God is heaven. We and everything in existence are in God and of God.

Just think on this please—if we could experience ‘pleasure’ at seeing aunt Susie, we couldn’t possibly be in heaven because pleasure means change and change means time—there is no time in eternity. Heaven is a state of ‘Perfect Happiness’ with no ‘human element’ of emotional change possible.

So back to ‘sacrifice” We sacrifice out of love—love of self, love of neighbor , and love of God—the absolute only command Jesus gave us. And Jesus Gave us God’s Prefect Love which means it is impossible for God to ‘dislike’ any one of us or anything.

I sincerely wish you each would read my little books Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. Your eyes would be opened to a new world. I know that many of you have read and I am grateful for your sake. For those who have not I’m attaching a Press Release and video trailer for each.

SIN-Hilary L Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSIN-Just what is sin and where did the idea of sin come from? Well, in the first instance, the Book Of Genesis tells us that Eve disobeyed God’s command and ate of the ‘forbidden fruit’. Consequently every human and animal alike have been branded with the curse of that Original Sin. In the second instance, during the Israelites exodus from Egypt, they became unruly and paganistic. Their leader, Moses, decided on a plan of action to get them under control—he concocted the Ten Commandments. When presented with them, the Israelites scorned Moses and went their ‘merry way’. Moses then presented them with a new set and proclaimed them to be God’s rules—any breech was known as sin from that day forward.

Now lets address the Garden of Eden story. It would seem from the story that all animals were peaceful and loved each other—they lived in perfect harmony. They surely all could talk because snakes could. What I want to know is who put the snake up to tempting Eve? If the snake dreamed up the idea herself, then she would have been the first sinner—I say ‘she’ because females have always been branded as being the source of all evil. Also, presumably, all animals could talk. so why didn’t many others attempt to talk the snake out of deceiving Eve?  Secondly, presumably at the moment Eve bit-in, all the animals would have turned ferocious. How could Adam and Eve have possibly escaped the ravages of all the Lions, tigers, grizzly bears, T Rexes, crocodiles, etc.—they were busy making loin-cloths from fig leaves—no way they could have survived. That entire story sounds very, very ‘fishy’ to me—it in no way reflects the God and the universe I know. I believe, without any doubt, that it represents the imagination of some person(s) attempting to explain a condition from a platform of total ignorance. Never-the-less, that story persists today. Everyone is free to take it or leave it—I prefer the latter.

IMG_0082Now lets talk about Moses and the Ten Commandments. He is to be commended  for constructing such a good set of rules for civility in society. The only two of those rules which seemed to matter as time went on were the 6th and 9th. Of course, they were of paramount importance because a woman (wife) was a man’s property—any unfaithfulness on her part was punishable by stoning to death—pretty serious stuff.

All of this ideology about sin was developed under the pretext of ‘displeasing’ God—that’s what sin was/is. If God were displeased which he was perpetually, then some form of recompense had to be developed to ‘please’ God. So, the idea of sacrifice was developed, deployed and maintained even to this moment—God must be appeased at all cost. And ‘cost’ it did. The High Priest got filthy rich and the peasants got poorer.

Then Jesus came along and guess what—he saw two major problems with the entire set-up. Number one, he saw the miniscule restrictive idea that the Jews had about the nature of their God. He understood the self-serving nature of their philosophy. Number two, he recognized the fallacy of their understanding of their relationship with their God. In other words they had no realistic idea who God was: neither did they have any realistic idea about love—one of the most basic attributes of Gods nature—his perfect love

With that understanding, he set about attempting to instruct them. He tried desperately to get the to see that God was in everything and that everything was/is in God. Likely we shall never know whether or not he was successful. The surviving written word we have has been so distorted. Just look at all the dozens of times it has been rewritten, reinterpreted, and re-invented. So where do we go. I know where I went—I pursued a determined path to the truth.

As I investigated and studied, it became readily apparent that the essence of no deity had ever defined explicitly. It also became readily apparent that without that essential definition , any talk about a deity was just random jargon and totally meaningless. Accordingly, my determination allowed me the freedom of thought and understanding to make that definition—God Is A Perfect Rational Being. That perfection means it cannot possibly be pleased or displeased. God knows all and is all including Perfect Love.

IMG_1065Jesus, seeing the universal evil of selfishness, the only sin and knowing that he and everything in existence were mirror images of God, knew that he must die that God could be Perfect Love. He was the only human to ever see that—what a terrifying thought—he was the messiah—he was the sacrificial lamb who paid the price  for us all—what glorious beauty. Our only just and worthy response is a great big thank you. 

I have full explanation of that and much, much more in my two little books Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality, both published by Covenant Books—Press Releases and video trailers attached

VENGEANCE-Hilary L Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngVENGEANCE-Now here is a word (concept) that is near and dear to my heart in a negative way. My basic concept and belief is that  vengeance has absolutely no place in our lives. So why am I so different from the rest of the world? Literally all so-called civilized nations as well as the three Abrahamic religions have vengeance as their common seat of operation. All legal systems are based on a revengeful punishment system for misbehavior. How many times have we witnessed a wronged family express  glee  when a sentence of major proportion is handed down, or express disappointment and disdain if a sentence lighter than expected is rendered? Why do you suppose that is? I think without doubt it stems from the Jewish religion and perpetuated by Christianity and Islam.

The Old Testament is rife with revenge not only being tolerated by God, but rather being both extoled and delivered by him. In Deuteronomy, God tells the Israelites if a hostile city  accepts peace terms, enslave them all. If they won’t accept peace terms, kill all the men and take their fair women as additional wives. God commanded them to kill every person in the pagan cities of the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites.—“you must doom them all”. Do not some sects of Islam believe it is their ‘God-given” command to exterminate every infidel? Do not all Christian religions teach a vengeful God that will condemn you to eternal hell for breech of his commands?

IMG_0082Jesus taught us that our only duty was to love our God with our all and to love our neighbor as ourselves—whatever happened to that teaching? I was raised in the Catholic Church and have attended mass regularly for eighty two years—I have never heard one single solitary sermon preached on that theme of love—not one. I have often wondered why—I think I know. If any religion admitted to and adhered to that teaching of Jesus, there would be absolutely no reason for their existence. They must continue teaching the philosophy of a vengeful God in order to justify their existence—after all, they hold the keys to the Kingdom right in their hands. Not only that, but sometimes  they smirkingly dangle them before your face. Almost everyone knows they have power which we do no have—we are just peons, not much better than the Hittites etc. 

IMG_1065As I listen to homilies Sunday after Sunday, I hear of God’s mercy, never God’s love. Since we are all dreadful sinners, God has two choices—either show mercy and forgive us or send us to hell. Of course that mercy  is ‘dished out’ by the Church—in exchange for our money and time. Never mind that we are sinners because God made us to be that way. Never mind that Jesus died to guarantee everyone’s salvation. Never mind that Jesus told us our only obligation was to love God and neighbor—after all, what Jesus said and did (died for us) really doesn’t count—it was just a ‘down-payment’. We must pay the balance to the Church.

When Constantine gave  (commanded ) the so-called bishops to form a religion of their liking, that was the end to Jesus’ real teaching. Jesus said “Moses gave you the ten commandments (to keep you in line), but I give you two—both love” (paraphrased). Have you noticed that there is never any power, money and control associated with love?—I have. There is plenty of power, money and control associated with vengeance—the God of the Old Testament is ‘alive and well’—Jesus’s God died in the year 325AD.

In my humble opinion, the human race is destined and doomed to a continued life of guilt and misery with absolutely no chance for peace until and if ever our attitude turns to the Jesus God and away from the God of the Old Testament. The Old Testament God Was vengeful and hurtful—he played favorites. Of course that was all in the minds of those who ‘dreamed him up’. The Jesus God is all love—wouldn’t hurt a flea—Jesus accepted all the hurt—Jesus showed us God’s Perfect Love. That vision didn’t satisfy the greedy hierarchy at all—no power, money , control. 

If I sound cynical, you read correctly. Furthermore, if you have noticed what I have and would like a deeper understanding, please read my two little books, Wilderness cry and Peace in Spirituality. Both published by Covenant Books and both available world wide Amazon et al.

Socialism-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSOCIALISM: how often in the history of the USA  have we heard that term—in fact we are hearing and seeing it openly advocated by political candidates on a moment to moment basis. Essentially all of the ‘isms’ carry then same base brand—taking from the ‘haves’ and giving to the ‘have nots’. This is a political ploy as old as the hills. It appeals to many for two basic reasons. Number one, many ‘less fortunate’ folks are eager to get free stuff. Number two, many of those same people are envious of their more fortunate neighbors and selfishly desire  to see them reduced to financial ruin—the foolish idea that it betters one’s situation to see his neighbor fail–envy at it’s best.

So lets examine some causes of success and failure. Obviously there are many examples of inheritance wealth and,  of those, the ones who invest wisely and  well will succeed even more–those who are ill prepared for wealth will soon be ‘poor’. However, the vast majority of people who succeed, do so by hard work and determination—most of them would fall into the oft spoken of ‘middle class’. Then there  are the ‘poor’.

What causes people to be poor? There are a myriad of causes. Just to enumerate a few–birth into poverty of both wealth and motivation; psychological influences promoting such an attitude; physical and mental disabilities making meaningful industry essentially impossible (however, I personally know one person with severe IQ limitations who has consistently held two to three jobs simultaneously for thirty years and has done very well financially—he had great guidance. Obviously that is the exception rather than the rule.); bad luck; major unexpected health issues, etc.

The question arises as to how we, as a loving society, address these issues of poverty. The socialists scream, ‘take from the rich and give to the poor”. That appeals to many—free everything on the backs of the ‘rich’. Guess what happens—the rich quit producing because their effort are not rewarded; the poor are not capable of producing. So, what happens then—the good old ‘give away’  government is broke, the roof caves in, and the system fails. My research has revealed that no socialist government has lasted one hundred years. Just look at the USSR.

As a Capitalistic nation, we long ago established backstops against financial failure and medical collapse for many. That does not mean to say that reforms may be not needed–almost everything needs tweaking periodically to keep abreast of changing times.

It is quite obvious that most of the world is envious of our prosperity. Many world leaders would do anything to wreck our prosperity and make us poor as they are–then they would feel good. Many individuals break our laws daily entering our country illegally–they have the support of two major organizations, the Democratic Party and the Catholic Church. Both seem desperate for similar reasons. The Democrats want open borders so they can give the immigrants freebies and thereby garner their votes (power, money, control). The Church wants open borders to beef up their enrollment believing that eventually those people would get meaningful jobs and begin contributing to the ’empire’ (money, power, control).

The problem with all that pseudo philosophy is this—sooner or later the drag on our economic engine becomes to great and our system fails. So who’s the winner?–poverty.

So rather than killing the greatest machine ever known at the federal level, we need to become more ‘loving’ on the local, private level. Communities need to step up their local, support for the needy. In Paducah, Ky., there are many great organizations who assist the poor and needy on a daily basis—I am certain more can and should be done. The answer is not in federal ‘giveaway’ wastefulness, but rather local control with possible federal assistance.

As for the ‘open border’ situation we need our border closed tightly so legal immigration can proceed judiciously, As a nation we need to keep our ‘Giant Economic Engine” running wide open so we can afford to ‘assist’ other countries in developing  their own economic engines—little to be gained by destroying our engine in the name of Socialism. Jesus did not teach such a philosophy–‘render unto Caesar– ‘.

The above philosophy is spelled out explicitly in my two books. Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. Press releases and video trailers for each attached.
