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.

LOVE or LIKE-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngLOVE or LIKE- do you know the difference—I doubt many do. At Catholic masses yesterday around the word the Gospel reading was from Matthew’s Gospel. Jesus seemingly makes some crazy, unrealistic, statements—that is to those who don’t understand. Even my priest admitted that he had pondered and struggled with that reading all week. I truly wanted to stand up and explain to him that if he would/could define ‘love’, he would have no quandary—of course, I wouldn’t/ shouldn’t/didn’t do that. As a consequence, I suspect few if any gleaned any meaningful understanding from the reading.

In that reading, Jesus tells his listeners that they must ‘love’ their enemies—turn the other cheek if someone strikes you on one cheek—do good to those who hate you. What does all that mean? Are we supposed to lay down and let our enemies (those who hate us) roll over us like a steam roller—are we not allowed to defend ourselves, and if we do are we breaking God’s law? I think, without doubt, none of the above.

IMG_0082In order to understand what Jesus was/is saying, we must first understand what love is. That word love is co commonly misused as to almost have no recognizable  meaning. It does, however, have eternal meaning which is derived from the epitome of love—God’s Perfect Love as manifested in this instance through the willing sacrificial death of Jesus. Simply stated love is acceptance. Jesus is calling us to accept our neighbor as a child of God who is loved by God just as we are. God/Jesus knows that each of us is a very imperfect being whose innate drives and understandings are based or our individual and collective life’s experiences. As a consequence, we develop attitudes obtuse to our neighbor even to the point of feeling it our right to be the aggressor to the point of taking someone’s life—even entire nations against other nations in war.

So how does that fit with Matthew’s Gospel reading? Very simply, Jesus is telling us we can never wish eternal evil on anyone or anything, because all are from the same creator. That does not mean that we have to like anyone or anything. The word like means to give ‘sensual pleasure’—see, feel, taste, smell, hear. It is entirely likely that at any given moment there are millions of people who don’t like each other—we get no sensual pleasure from them. However, we must never wish eternal evil on them. The Muslim terrorists who want to kill us are not liked at all by us, but they are children of God and must be accepted as such—that is Jesus message. Jesus never said we couldn’t kill an assailant if necessary to protect our selves and families, but in doing so, we must do with respect and acceptance.

IMG_1065That very concept of ‘love’ is what is so desperately missing in the universal philosophies of religion. If we could ever come to realize that God loves each of us equally, peace could be possible. But, as long as religion continues to spew the concept of a vengeful God, who is capable of showing more favor to some than others, there is absolutely no possibility of voluntary peace. We are taught that the more we go to church, or the more money we give to the church etc., the better God likes us, because we give him more sensual pleasure—therefore we get a ‘higher place’ in heaven. If that is not not tantamount to selling indulgences, I’ll eat my hat. I’ll bet my bottom dollar that a person who never darkens a church door, or a person who even denies the existence of God is loved by God equal to all others.

This vengeful, favoristic concept of God dreamed up by the Jews and perpetuated by Christianity has fostered a hostel attitude among people from day one. Again I am pleading for the recognition and acceptance of the World-wide Communion of Spirituality—the understanding that all things are of God and in God. Only then can peace be achieved. Please read my little books Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality.

SPIRITUALITY-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSPIRITUALITY- Just what is spirituality? Likely, if you were to ask that question of a thousand people, you’d get a thousand different answers—all would be vague. Two years ago, on this very site, I called for the understanding and acceptance of  The World-wide Communion of Spirituality—my call continues. About six months ago, Covenant Books released the second of by books titled Peace in Spirituality. This book represents just one of a myriad of natural extensions of my philosophy of the  essence of God’s nature as outlined in my first book, Wilderness Cry.

As noted above, most responses about spirituality would be vague, the reason being that before one can understand ‘spirituality’, one must understand the Trinity. Of course, all Christians have been taught (told) that the Trinity is a ‘mystery’ and not understandable to us mere mortals. One might ask the logical question then, if we can’t understand it and it’s a mystery, what good does it do to talk about it?—we literally don’t know what we’re talking about.

I pondered that question for sixty years—I poured over volume after volume of history, philosophy and natural science. Then, as luck would have it, for some reason I took an extensive overview course in Quantum Mechanics (particle physics)—twenty four lectures of thirty five to forty five minutes each. To my amazement, I discovered that everything in the universe is composed of identically the same things—of course, I already knew that everything was composed of atoms, but I didn’t know what atoms themselves were made of. Neither did I know that the   individual particles of light called photons could behave in both wave pattern and particulate pattern. I discovered that the tinniest particles of energy with names such as photons, electrons, bosons etc. were each identical to its counterparts in both form and function—neither could any of them be reduced to a smaller dividend. In other words, each particle was perfect in both form and function and unchangeable. IMG_0082What a startling revelation—they all existed in eternity just as God.

So lets get this straight, everything in our gross physical world is composed of infinite, perfect, eternal energy particles, while at the same time their ultimate constructions are constantly changing (evolving). That understanding suggested to me that there was/is a Perfect Rationality which designed and keeps them perfect—eureka!! I finally was able to define God’s essence— God is a Perfect Rational Being. That Perfect Intellect reflecting upon itself sees a ‘mirror image’ of itself—in the supernatural, that image is a living being also (the second person of Trinity). Then two Perfect Intellects viewing each other have no choice except to accept, love, choose each other—that is the Will of God (the Holy Spirit). Therefore, the Will of God, the Holy Spirit is indelibly imprinted on each particle of energy of which all things are made. That recognition and acceptance my friends is spirituality.

IMG_1065Therein lies my basis for calling for the World-wide Communion of Spirituality. It gives real literal meaning to Saint Paul’s assertion that we are ‘temples of the Holy Spirit’—indeed we and everything in existence likewise.

This understanding allows for a real meaning of spirituality. Moreover, that understanding and acceptance are mandatory if peace is ever to be achieved. For full enrichment and comprehension, please read my two little books.

TIME-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngTIME: this word indicates a very simple but necessary concept in order for us to understand and deal with the change that takes place in our universe on a continuing and continual basis. In other words, time is a measurement of change. As intelligent beings, we not only recognized change but we perceived the need to calibrate the rate of change so as to be able to arrange suitable schedules of our activities. All sorts of designations of measurement have been developed since humans occupied this earth. Even the Egyptians fourteen thousand years ago calculated that it takes roughly 26,000 years for each of the twelve Zodiac characters to rotate off the horizon.

So for our everyday use, ordinary humans arrange their schedules according to seconds, minutes, days and years. Physicists, mathematicians and other natural or particle physicists may employ a different set of time parameters. Regardless of designation, each is an expression of degree of change. For instance, we may set our automobile on cruise control at 70 mph. That  tells us that one hour from now we will have changed location by seventy miles. Unconsciously, we routinely use time considerations on a moment to moment basis as a guide to orderliness in our lives.

IMG_0082There are, however, many time considerations used by astrophysicists, cosmologists, particle physicists and others to determine a stars distance  from earth. It has been calculated to take 100,000 years for light traveling at the speed of 186,000 m/sec to go from one side of out Milky Way galaxy to the other side. Most of those distance calculations are based on star’s color spectrum and brightness. In any event, scientists have used those methods to calculate that it has been roughly 13.7 billion years since the universe came into existence. One cannot fathom the distance that light traveling at 186,000 miles/ second would travel in 13.7 billion years.

Now put on your ‘thinking hat’ and try to imagine a God who caused it to happen. How would you describe such a being. The Bible describes him in various ways. The usual way is a grizzled old man in semi-bust form sitting in the clouds and lording over his earth creation—seemingly, he has no real concern about the rest of his creation. Mind you, compared with the remainder of creation, the earth is totally insignificant in both size and function—or so it seems.

With closer observation, we have discovered that the earth is, in fact, made of exactly the same identical material as all of the rest of creation. In fact, those tinniest of particles of energy are the only creation ever made in the scope of our ‘time’ measurements. In addition, we have observed that there are different types of these particles which have been given specific names such as photons, electrons, bosons, etc. We also have observed that each of those particles of a specific kind is identical to and indistinguishable from it counterparts. Also, close observation has shown that each is absolutely perfect in both form and function.

IMG_1065Having made those observations causes many of us to ask a very fundamental question—where did all that come from? Did it just happen or, possibly, did some unseen Higher Power account for it all? The ‘miniscule’ picture of such a ‘possible creator’ as painted in the Bible becomes  almost a laughing matter when one considers the magnitude of the task. Simple observation of the gross universe shows it to be constantly changing. However, its ‘building blocks’ are each prefect and unchanging. So where does that leave us?

If we understand Eternity to be a state of being without change (no time), and we simultaneously recognize the perfection and unchangeability of the universe’s building blocks, then we may begin to get an inkling into the understanding of their creator. Their creator exists in eternity—so do the building blocks of our changing universe. So a logical conclusion would be that the building blocks mimic the image of their creator-–they are their own creator. How can that be? What kind of creator is this anyway? How may we define it? That identical question has been pondered by theologians and great philosophers and thinkers from the beginning of recorded history.

Because none of them had benefit of knowledge about the particle world of perfection, they were never able to define the essence of their creator—each, in turn, failed completely. As luck and determination would have it, with the development of Quantum Mechanics, this particle perfection gradually came to light. I was fortunate to explore its ramifications—mind you, I’m no particle physicist, but I understand the principles. that understanding ‘turned on my lights’. God is Perfect Rationality. That definition explained all—it removed all mystery. It explained precisely the Trinity. It explained precisely Jesus and his need to die. It explained precisely God’s Perfect Love. In short, it explained everything—it left not a single lingering doubt.

We started todays discussion talking about time. Now were talking about a mixture of time (measure of change) and eternity (no change). God exists in everything in an unchanging eternity, whilst at the same time he is evolving an entire gross universe of selfish change—why? The obvious reason is so he could die in the image of Jesus and thereby exonerate all with his  Perfect Love.

Please read my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality for a fuller understanding. I am attaching Covenant Books Press Releases and video trailers for each.

JESUS-HILARY L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngJESUS of NAZARETH—Just who was/is Jesus of Nazareth? Does Anyone know? Paul’s sidekick Mark, who wrote the first gospel gives us absolutely no clue except Jesus’ proclamation that he and the Father were one. Years later Matthew and Luke embellished Marks writings on both ends with remarkable contradiction of each other. John’s acolyte(s) some sixty years after Jesus’ death concocted a tale incorporating the notion that God and Jesus coexisted from all eternity, whilst at the same time implying that nothing else coexisted with them. We know from the writings of Professor Garry Wills in his book What Paul Meant, that Luke was a veritable liar and cannot be trusted. So just where does that leave us poor simpletons who are at the mercy of religion to tell us? From my perspective it leaves us in a deep, deep, dark dudgeon of deceit. And you, understandably, would question why I would say such a heretical thing.

When one traces the origins of the ‘one true religion’ of the time, Judaism, it becomes quite obvious that it was developed from multiple preconceived notions of mythology and astrology. The Zodiac developed by the Egyptians some fourteen thousand years ago, had become the foundation for essentially all religious belief. The Egyptians, Greeks and essentially all cultures had gods galore—each with its specific functions. The sun, moon and stars played the biggest role in the imaginative ideas they developed.

When the Jews came with the idea of a singular God who had created the entire universe, they indeed struck a ‘high note’. Not only did they give their God credit for creating everything, they actually developed a time-frame of sorts for its happening. In addition they surmised that in the beginning, all animal life was peaceful and benevolent—-even snakes could talk. They all co-existed in paradise.

IMG_0082However, observing their current plight at the time forced them to explain what happened—where did paradise go? Well, since woman was the ‘scourge’ creation, it became immediately fashionable to put the blame on her. So they conveniently developed the tale of Eve tempting Adam to break God’s rule, that is to sin—the fun was over—how sad.

To the unwary that story may sound like a suitable, appeasing explanation. However there is one little detail that was  overlooked. We seem to forget that snakes could ‘talk’ and guess what—it was the snake who was the first sinner—the snake enticed Eve to sin. Where did the serpent come up with such a dastardly idea as to defy its God?  Now isn’t that a startling turn of events—it wasn’t Eve’s fault after all. Who planted the ‘seed’ of defiance in the snakes brain—wouldn’t you like to know—I would.

The rather obvious answer to those ridiculous proposals and questions is nobody—none of it ever happened. The fictional Eve became the obvious scapegoat because women were then, and always have been considered something only  slightly better than ‘pond scum’. So no one in his ‘right mind’ would question the fact that a woman caused all the trouble. Furthermore, everyone knew that snakes talked perfect Yiddish—didn’t you?

So you may say, what’s that got to do with Jesus of Nazareth? and I would say everything. When Jesus came along, He puzzled, startled, bewildered, and angered people. Everyone who knew him was aware that he was just a poor carpenters son—how could he be making such statements and proclamations. My answer to that very legitimate question stems from my definition of the essence of God. That definition shows clearly that God’s perfection precludes any possibility of physical miracles. Likewise it negates any possibility of Hell. God is Perfect Love and cannot possibly reject any part of his perfect creation. Likewise God’s perfect nature precludes any possibility of change, a necessity for physical miracles.

Jesus was a simple carpenter’s son, However, I am convinced that he was the most brilliant human to ever live. He was born of natural parents but his genius allowed him to see though the folly of the Jewish religion. The Jew’s God was an Overlord with a mighty whip. He sat on his throne and kept a keen eye on his creation which was separate from him—ever-ready to hurl punishment at violators. Jesus saw a completely different God—a God that permeated everything in existence—a God who could not possible be separated from his creation—nothing could ‘be’ without the inner presence of God.

IMG_1065That insight, of course, told Jesus that his own being and the Spirit of the Father were One. Knowing that the universe was universally evil by virtue of its selfishness told Jesus that atonement was mandatory in order for God to be Perfect Love. That realization sent a shock-wave through Jesus—that meant that since he was the only one with that knowledge, he had to be the scape-goat—he was the messiah—he had to pay the price.

The implications from Jesus’ insights were astonishing. Whereas the Jews considered death as the end of everything, Jesus’ realization on the other hand that everything was a mirror image of God  meant that everything had an eternal existence just as its creator. After undoubtedly consulting with his cousin, John, he hastily set about attempting to recruit and educate a group to spread that good news (Gospel) to the entire world. Whether or not he was successful in that endeavor, we will never know—so corrupt is the written word we have.

In any event the Jews killed him by hanging him on a tree—-crucifixion which was reserved for traitors. From there we can only guess at what happened. The written word we have was copied from one remaining copy which was a copy of hundreds, maybe thousands of copies—that single copy was made some two hundred years after the original writing. We do know that from that time on dozens of ‘versions’ have appeared over the years. The noted Professor of Bible at North Carolina University, Dr. Bart Ehrman, shows that only %30 of the bible was written by its supposed author. Also as one example, he shows clearly that Jerome, the hermit, who despised women and sex, in the process of translating the bible from Greek to Latin, changed or eliminated any mention of a woman doing or saying anything ‘good’.

It seems clear that Jesus’ basic message was that God is love—his only command was love God with your all and love your neighbor a yourself. My definition of the essence of God (God is a perfect rational being) supports that ideation completely.

Both Jesus and Paul despised religion—they said that love must prevail. But when Constantine gave the ‘Bishops” a mandate to fashion a religion to their liking, they did just that. They fashioned a religion right out of the Jewish play-book—all about power, money and control. We have been shackled with it and its 33,000 variants since. And what has it gotten us—-perpetual turmoil.

So what’s the point?—it makes no difference—God loves us each equally—Jesus died for our iniquity—anything else is fairy tales.

I have written extensively about this subject in my two books Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality—both books published by Covenant Books and available on line and from me if desired. I have attached press releases and short video trailers for each.

PRAYER-Hilary L Hunt MD

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngThe subject of prayer is one near and dear to my heart—as well it may and should be to all. How do you pray and why. Have you ever stopped to consider why you pray the way you do? I would suggest that literally everyone who prays has been preconditioned to pray a certain way and that most of those prayers are of  contrition  and  petition—many, of course, make a swipe at thanksgiving. 

Having said that, lets examine the basis for our prayers. The contrition part befits us all—definitely we all are sinners (selfish). Quite obviously we all have much to be thankful for—our life, our sustenance and hopefully out salvation. But what about prayers of petition—why do we feel a justifiable need or right to beg God for anything? The only reason I  can see is the basic idea of  dualism.

Those Old Testament Christians who still believe that God created his universe and then continually lords over it could be called dualist—that is they believe God is here watching over his creation which is over there. In other words, they see God as directly micromanaging every tiny aspect of their lives. If they do something wrong, he sees it and will certainly inflict punishment if that wrong is not addressed properly. Additionally, they see God as being able and possibly willing to make something happen just for them if begged long and hard enough—they not only believe in miracles but rather expect them. They  believe God can change the course of events with the snap of his fingers. That’s what the Old Testament God was like. So they feel not only allowed but obliged to beg God to change his mind.

IMG_0082So dualism originated in the mythological thinking of  the ancients and it persist today. There may be some non-dualist religions but I not aware of any—not at least in Christianity. I think that likely the Hindus and Buddhists were for the most part nondualists.

There have been and still are many, many individual philosophers who have recognized the presence of God in everything.  They are able to see God’s perfection (Spirit, Will, Love) in all living and inanimate existences. Jesus the Christ (light of the world) was the first Christian to see that clearly. He attempted to indoctrinate his followers to that good news (gospel) before they killed him. The recorded writings are so corrupt and distorted as to make it impossible to know. There are many hints in Paul’s writings—several in both John’s Gospel and Epistle. Personally, I have discovered the most straightforward assertions in the Coptic Gospel of Thomas. Jesus keeps saying over and over in different words and examples the same message—I am in everything and everything is in me. He told them ‘the kingdom of God is spread out all over the earth and you don’t see it’. He made that remark in response to their continued query about when he was going to ‘restore the kingdom’.

Saint Francis of Assisi was a firm believer in a nondualist existence. The Franciscan philosophy has always affirmed that belief. It is a ‘miracle’ that the Catholic Church has not excommunicated them, because it certainly professes a dualist attitude and understanding about God—almost all ‘Catholic’ prayers are prayers of ‘petition’—that is begging God to ‘change’ something or somebody, or some state of existence. As a child raised as a devout Catholic, I spent hours and hours on my knees begging God directly and through the saints in heaven to make things happen. I was not once able to detect any direct answer to my imploring—likewise not once could I detect any answer to our entire parish begging and pleading with God to make something happen. I was told by my priest that it was God’s will. I was eleven to twelve years old at the time—old enough to reason that if that were the case, it was obvious that God’s will could not be influenced. That recognition prompted me to embark on ‘A Journey of Understand’.

IMG_1065That journey forced me ‘out of the box’ in my thinking—something was dreadfully wrong and I was determined to find out. That determination rapidly led to my conclusion that no one really knew who God was—God was just an imaginary entity dreamed up right out of the Jew’s playbook. I was dismayed to learn that no one had ever defined the essence of God—without an essential definition, God is ‘pure fiction’. After years of intense study and contemplation, but more importantly after my study of Quantum Mechanics (particle physics), the understanding of God’s essence became clear— God is a Perfect Rational being—what a revolutionary understanding!

That insight opened windows to an entirely new world—-it explained everything—it eliminated all mystery. My God was Perfect  in every respect—He knew everything, That knowledge gave him all power.  That perfection extended to his Perfect Love—meaning he accepts (loves, wills) everything his perfect intellect perceived (the Holy Spirit—Will of God). More importantly, that understanding of God’s perfect love means he cannot possibly reject any part of his creation—Hell is an impossibility. Furthermore his perfection means that ‘change of any type’ is impossible—God cannot possibly chance his nature. Therefore physical miracles are impossible.

With that understanding, it becomes obvious that prayers of petition are not only evidence of lack of understanding God’s essence (nature), but in addition a total waste of time.

What about prayers of contrition? I would venture to say that God does not ‘expect’ them—perfect love means acceptance without condition—God accepts (loves) everyone and everything equally. The only value I see in prayers of Contrition is that they may help us to be more loving of both our God and our neighbors. They certainly are not necessary.

So, is there any ‘justifiable’ prayer? I think prayers of thanksgiving , while not necessary nor demanded by God, they are, in fact justified. How then should we pray? I believe thusly; ‘Thank you dear Lord God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit (Will of God) for my existence, for my sustenance, and for my salvation through Jesus. Amen.

I have developed and expanded this philosophy extensively in my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality—both published by Covenant Books. I should also note that Wilderness Cry has been selected as ‘Book of the Month’, by the Online Book Club for the coming month of December. They have one million members and only showcase twelve books each year—0ne each month.

Press release and video trailer for each attached.

Theory-Hilary. L Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngTHEORY: Just what is a theory? We hear the word used frequently—I suspect few have a clear-cut idea of its meaning. I think a ‘theory’ can best be explained this way: A theory is a scientific proposal based on previously observed scientific facts aimed at explaining a scientific principle. In other words, it is an attempt to explain the exact nature and/or cause of a known fact. For instance, everyone with functioning eyes can observe the moon and knows that it seemingly rotates around the earth—that would be a presumed ‘scientific fact’. The question then is, ‘why is that a fact—why does that happen’. I am as certain as I am sitting in this chair, that the ancients had many pseudo-theories, but because they knew little if any scientific astronomical facts, all of their theories would eventually be proven wrong. It was only through progressive scientific investigation prompted by ‘theoretical’ scientific questions that the answers became known.

Please note that the word science comes from the Latin word scientia which means knowledge—and knowledge is ‘truth’. So during this discussion, we are going to be dealing with what are known truths. In like fashion, we will discuss some theory(s), about the nature of our existence—indeed the nature of all existences.

In ancient Egyptian days, it was assumed that there was god(s) which exerted control and influence on their lives. They and the Greeks who followed named a god for essentially every known function from ‘fertility’ to ‘love’ to ‘harvest’. The sun, moon and stars had special influences. Fourteen thousand years ago, the Egyptians, connecting the dots between certain stars created  characters with names such as Aquarius. They observed that gradually each character rotated off the horizon. The time from the appearance to disappearance was known as an ‘Age’ and was calculated by them to be 1800-2200 years. Their twelve characters were arranged in circular pattern as observed in the night sky and became known as the Zodiac (from Greek word meaning animal). The time for total rotation of the Zodiac ( twelve Ages) was calculated to be roughly 26,000 years—obviously they were astute mathematicians. Their theories of the meaning of the Zodiac have not been proven to be correct—in spite of  that fact, many follow the Zodiac religiously.

IMG_0082As time went on, the Jews came to the realization that there was only one God. Because they made the determination, that God became theirs and theirs alone. Of, course, they ascribed certain characteristics to their God. He was male, old, temperamental—he could love you one minute and hate you to the point of exterminating you the next minute. He was all powerful—in fact, he created the universe and everything in it. They could converse and even bargain with their God.

Now, of course, all of this was no more that their ‘theoretical’ imagination. They theorized every conceivable idea possible about their God. But because they had absolutely no scientific evidence nor backdrop, essentially none of their theories could stand the test of the scientific process. A Religion was developed to appease their vengeful God—that religion was based on their preconceived idea that ‘their God’ was, in fact, vengeful. What next?

Well, when Jesus came along, he claimed to be ‘one with the Father’. He told us that God was ‘all love’. According to Paul, Jesus told us that our salvation was guaranteed, not by anything we do nor had done, but, rather, through the ‘Perfect Love’ of our creator, God. They killed Jesus for his ‘heretical teaching’. They crucified him, an ignominious death reserved for those who committed treason—preaching heresy to the Jewish religion was ultimate treason. It was as unadulterated attempt to destroy the Jewish law and way of life.

However, all of that was done based on an ‘unproven theory’ about an ‘unknown God’—Jesus died. Jesus told us that The Jew’s theory was incorrect. He said ‘yes, there is only one God, but he is in everything and everything is in him’—“split a piece of wood and I am there; lift a rock and you will find me there”.

In spite of Jesus’ ‘new teaching’,  so-called Christian church which eventuated in Jesus’s name reverted to the Jewish form of theoretical consideration—they had to have a ‘vengeful’ God who commanded and demanded ‘sacrifice’—heaven was no gift—it must be earned’. Guess what, neither Jesus’ nor Paul’s theories were correct in their minds—so a self-serving religion prevailed.

IMG_1065So what has been the outcome? As is the usual, with selfish human nature always in play, there were/are those who say, ‘more than one can play that game’. The result of all that self-serving ‘theory’ is that, as of 2014, there were 33,000 self-serving so-called Christian theories alone about who God is and how he operates—and every last one of them ultimately based on the Zodiac. I’d like to ask one very simple question—-is any of that rational?—I don’t think so.

That irrationality  prompted me to explore those pseudo-theories. After years of intense study, query and learning, but more especially because of my  encounter with Quantum Mechanics (Particle Physics), I was able to finally define the  essence  of our God. I was able to show that God’s basic nature of being was/is ‘Perfect Rationality’. Extrapolating that definition explains all—it dispels all pseudo-theories with which we have been shackled for centuries. Just a cursory examination of Quantum Mechanics will demonstrate God’s only ultimate  creation—all of the perfect particles of energy of which everything is made. Furthermore, my definition demonstrates God’s ‘perfect love’—his acceptance of his perfect creation (God’s Will—the Holy Spirit).

My extensive writing on these subjects have been published by Covenant Books in two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. I have attached their press releases and video trailers . I  strongly urge you to read them.

Spirit-Hilary L. Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngSpirit: now here is a word that is commonly used, and frequently with different connotations. So I ask you, just what is ‘spirit’ anyway. Likely you would say drive, animation, liveliness,  etc. Then I might inquire about the Holy Spirit, and if you were Christian, your response would be a forthright; “it’s the third person of the Trinity”. Then I might inquire about what that ‘third person of the Trinity’ means. What meaningful information could you give me? I suspect you would be stumped for a meaningful answer. And why am I allowed to say that?

Very plainly the Trinity refers to the three persons in a God who is  presumed to exist. Notice I said ‘presumed’—why didn’t I say “who is known to exist”? Lots of folks would retort that they ‘know’ it because they ‘believe’ it. But does believing make it so? I think not—folks have believe all sorts of thing that later were proven to be false. For instance, there was once a time when people were certain that the earth was flat, and in addition it was the center of the universe—Galileo Galilei discovered that the sun was the center of our little universe (solar system). His discovery almost cost him his life—The Inquisition was going to burn him at the stake until he retracted his scientific discovery. He spent the last nine years of his life under house arrest for his ‘foolish’ assertion. It was also falsely believed under penalty of death that the earth was supported on five crooked legs. Because of that false belief, sex anywhere except on the ground was punishable by burning at the stake—the vibrations created by sex on an elevated bed might cause the wobbly legs to collapse and the earth would topple into the netherworld below.

IMG_0082So you might ask what’s my point. My point is rather simple—faith does not equilibrate with fact. A cursory examination of history will plainly show the massive turmoil our earth has endured because of faith. What ‘faith’ had done is generate thousands and thousands of religions, each with a competing idea about a god which it cannot define, but with a definitive method for appeasement. That’s what religion has done and is still doing—the turmoil continues at a torrid pace.

You might say; “man, where are you going with this?” And, I say; “if you cannot define the essence of your god, then you realistically have no god—you have a myth. Sounds pretty harsh, doesn’t it?—could anything be more harsh than the unending turmoil created and perpetuated by religion? I’d venture to say you’d be hard-pressed to identify it. Just in case you don’t understand, essence is that singular quality which makes something what it basically is.

So what does all that have to do with spirit (Holy Spirit) ?—everything. It is not possible to have a concrete  understanding of the Holy Spirit without defining the essence of God. I am the only human who ever lived who has irrefutably defined the essence of God—check it out—sounds egotistical but true. I defined God’s essence thus: God is a perfect rational being. That means that God has a Perfect Intellect which perceives all and a Perfect Will which achieves all. When Gods Perfect Intellect reflects upon its perfect perceptions, it sees a perfect mirror image of itself. In the supernatural both images are live beings. Those two perfect images have no choice except to accept (will, choose, love) that Perfection. That loving, willing, choosing, accepting each other is the Will of God, the Holy Spirit. That spirit is the ‘driving’ force which enlivens and keeps perfect each particle of God’s creation (imagination).

IMG_1065That takes right back to the everyday understanding of ‘spirit’—drive, animation, liveliness. The Holy Spirit (Will of God, Gods Love, God’s choosing, God’s acceptance) is the Perfect Driving Force who keeps all of creation perfect.

So how does that play into our understanding of spirituality. Many might and probably do equilibrate religiosity with spirituality—they presume that because they are religious, they are spiritual. And I can guarantee you that nothing could be farther from the truth. Spirituality entails the knowledge and understanding that the Holy Spirit (Will, Love, Choice, Acceptance of God) is indelibly branded onto every particle of energy of which all things are made. That brings Paul’s assertion that ‘we are temples of the Holy Spirit’ into clear focus.

I have written extensively about this subject in my two books, Wilderness Cry, and Peace in Spirituality. Covenant books published both. I have attached their press release and video trailer for each. I would encourage you to read my little books to increase your scope of understanding, but more importantly, to relieve yourself of the terrible blanket of guilt imposed on you by religion.  You are guilty of nothing but being a child of God who cherishes you with Perfect Love.

Essence-Hilary L. Hunt M.D.

cropped-img_0360-1-e1509913859388.pngDo you know what a ‘thing-a-ma-jig’ is? Well, specifically speaking, neither do I. But I’d bet my last dollar that if you were to eavesdrop on a group of West Kentucky farmers sitting around a pot-bellied stove, you wouldn’t have to listen very long until you heard the term, thing-a-ma-jig. Each one, in turn, sooner or later is likely to utter the term during an attempt to explain a solution to some farm or machinery problem. However, not one of his listeners have the foggiest notion of what the other’s thing-a-ma-jig is, but true to the usual, each pretends to know exactly what he means.

Now that scenario is ‘common as house flies’, but more importantly represents the exact basis for most everyday conversation—everyone talks in undefined terms, and all the listeners, pretending to understand, learn nothing. Then each, in turn, spurts forth a barrage of ill- or undefined terms that no one truly understands but seldom questions—and they call that conversation.

IMG_0082I believe it was the famous Greek philosopher, Socrates, who, being continually annoyed by such jargonistic speech, counselled his acolytes to “question everything”. The hoity-toity Greeks didn’t want to be ‘questioned’—so they killed him.  What he meant was, ‘if one cannot define his/her terms, they likely are meaningless. Do not waste your time engaging in meaningless talk’.

So that brings us back to the thing-a-ma-jig. If one does not, nor cannot define the essence of his/her terms, they are meaningless to everyone except him/her. That, of course, means that everyone’s thing-a-ma-jig is theirs alone—just like Santa Claus. So what is essence anyway. Essence may be defined as that singular quality that makes something what it basically is. Without that ‘essential’ understanding of terms, conversation has no real meaning.

So it is with God and love—likely the two most used (misused) nouns in language. In the case of  ‘love’, it is used to express delight in something or someone, whereas, in reality, it means acceptance—its synonyms could be will, choice, spirit. The word ‘like’ which means to generate sensual pleasure should more appropriately be used.

In the case of God, it typically refers to a supreme being. However, since that supreme being has never been defined, it basically is a thing-a-ma-jig—everyone’s God is his/hers alone with no possibility of any two being exact—no one can tell anyone else  what the exact essence of their god is.

IMG_1065I mentioned that the essence of God has never been defined—that is until August of 2016 when I published the first of my two philosophy books, Wilderness Cry. After fifty to sixty years of intense study and pondering, and with the explicit help of Particle Physics (Quantum Mechanics), I came to the startling realization of what and who God is. God’s ‘absolute essence’ can be summed up in six simple words—God is a Perfect Rational Being. That essential definition says it all—absolutely nothing can be added nor deleted. God’s perfect intellect perceives all, and his perfect will (love) achieves and maintains all. That perfect Love precludes any possibility of a ‘hell’—simultaneously, Gods perfect nature precludes any possibility of ‘physical miracles’. A physical miracle would require a ‘change’ of God’s perfect nature—since Gods nature is perfect, change is impossible.

So I would encourage you to read my two books, Wilderness Cry and Peace in Spirituality. In their reading, you will instantly be able to eliminate the ‘thing-a-ma-jigs’, in your life—you will instantly have a clear understanding of God and his workings.

I have included Covenant Books’  press releases and short video trailers for each of my books. I trust you will review them.
