Jesus Speaks About Women

In 1887 Russian anthropologist Nicolas Notovitch travelled to India in the hope to study Hindu culture.   Notovitch arrived in Ladakh which is located on the northern border of India, as this was the point from where he would make his journey back home – through Karakorum and Chinese Turkestan. 

During his stay in Ladakh, Notovich had been told about a Buddhist monastery where manuscripts recording the life of Jesus were to be found.  These manuscripts were in Lhasa and was prohibited to ‘white’ man, as was the entire country of Tibet at that time.   

During that specific point in time whilst Notovitch was in Ladakh, it was known that the British government were suspicious that any russian who set foot in India was suspected of being either an agitator or spy, hence Notovitch began his journey home as the British authorities were getting nervous about Notovitch’s presence there. 

Notovitch did not make it too far when he fell from his horse, broke his leg and this forced him to stay at the Himis monastery. 

It was here that Notovitch took advantage of his stay and asked for the manuscript on the life of Jesus be brought to him. 

Notovitch showed the text to leaders of the Russian Orthodox church and this was not received well.  In fact he was advised that printing it could cause a litany of ‘problems’ so to speak. 

And then a year later Notovitch presented it to a cardinal who offered to pay him for his efforts in exchange for the text to be suppressed. 

In time though Notovitch did publish his findings The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ.    The following is an extract of the original Text of Nicolas Notovitch’s Discovery in 1887 and is of Jesus speaking about women. 

When I read this excerpt for the first time, it brought tears to my eyes as I had always intuitively known that religions have played an integral role in keeping  many ‘truths’ hidden from us – especially where women are concerned and their rightful place- their divine inheritance.

 

An old woman, who had approached the group to better hear Jesus was pushed aside by one of the disguised men, who placed himself before her. 

Jesus said:  ” It is not good for a son to push away his mother, that he may occupy the place which belongs to her.  Whoso doth not respect his mother – the most sacred being after his God – is unworthy of the name of son.

Harken to what I say to you:  Respect woman; for in her we see the mother of the universe, and all the truth of divine creation is come through her.

She is the fount of everything good and beautiful, as she is also the germ of life and death.  Upon her man depends in all his existence, for she is his moral and natural support in his labors.

In pain and suffering she brings you forth; in the sweat of her brow she watches over your growth, and until her death, you cause her great anxieties.  bless her, and adore her, for she is your only friend and support on earth.

Respect her; defend her.  In so doing you will gain for yourself her love;you will find favor before God, and for her sake many sins will be remitted to you.

Love your wives and respect them. for they will be the mothers of tomorrow and later the grandmothers of a whole nation.

Be submissive to the wife; her love ennobles man, softens his hardened heart, tames the wild beast in him and changes it to a lamb.

Wife and mother are priceless treasures which God has given to you.  They are the most beautiful ornaments of the universe, and from them will be born all who inhabit the world. 

Even as the Lord of Hosts separated the light from the darkness, and the dry land from the waters, so does woman possess the divine gift of calling forth out of man’s evil nature all the good that is in him

Therefore I say unto you, after God, to woman you must belong your best thoughts, for she is the divine temple where you will most easily obtain perfect happiness.

Draw from this temple your moral force.  There you will forget your sorrows and your failures, and recover the love necessary to aid your fellow men.

Suffer her not to be humiliated, for by humiliating her you humiliate yourselves, and lose the sentiment of love, without which nothing can exist here on earth.

Protect your wife, that she may protect you – you and all your household.  All that you do for your mothers, your wives, for a widow or any other woman in distress, you will do for your God”

Why Fear Limits Your Life Potential

Have you ever felt like fear was preventing you from reaching your full potential in life?  If so, you are certainly not alone because fear is one of the biggest obstacles that many people face when trying to create better life circumstances.

 

Below are some of the most common ways that fear can hold you back:

 

Fear can prevent you from making positive changes.

 

Sometimes fear can make even the smallest changes seem extremely uncomfortable.  For example, you may be deeply dissatisfied with your job, but feel nervous or uncertain about finding and applying for a better one.  Or you may have always dreamed of buying your own home but worry that the responsibility would be too much to handle.

 

Fear can prevent you from breaking destructive habits.

 

We all know that smoking, poor dietary choices, excessive alcohol and a sedentary lifestyle are a recipe for health problems, but we often gravitate toward these habits because they help numb our anxious or fearful feelings.  If you have ever tried to break a bad habit like this, you know how stressful it can be because suddenly you are filled with anxiety and you don’t know how to handle it except to run back to your “pacifiers” – the very habits you are trying to break.

 

Fear can prevent you from taking risks.

 

Many of us shy away from risk because we fear negative consequences.  For example, you may hesitate to invest your money because you fear losing it, or avoid starting a new relationship because you were so hurt by the last one.  What most of us fail to realize is that risk can also bring great rewards.  Avoiding risk may help us avoid negative possibilities but we also miss the excitement and joy that come from positive outcomes.

 

Fear can prevent you from pursuing your goals.

 

Have you ever dreamed of doing something great but were never able to push yourself to do it?  Perhaps you dreamed of being a stand-up comedian but dreaded the thought of public speaking, or you desperately wanted to be a bestselling author but were too afraid to pen that novel lurking inside of you.

 

Fear can prevent you from expanding your life.

 

Social anxiety is another common way that fear can limit your potential.  It may prevent you from attending networking functions so your career or business can’t grow properly, or you may avoid taking that much needed vacation to relax and explore other cultures because you fear flying or being on a cruise ship.

 

How to Stop Fear from Limiting Your Potential

 

It’s important to note that all of these fears are most often groundless.  They are merely a perception that things “could” go wrong – but that doesn’t mean they will. 

 

Rather than trying to force your way through the fear, you may find it easier to explore the many ways that fear can be effectively released from your mind, emotions, and body.  When you know how to release the fear, you simply handle it as you would any minor obstacle and then continue on your way to creating the best life you possibly can.

Plan of Action

How many of us think, wish, dream and ponder upon the kind of life we would like as opposed to the kind of life we have?

Quite often we aspire for a better kind of life.  More money, better health, happy and fulfilling relationships, the opportunity to travel and to be able to afford some of life’s luxuries.  Having aspirations is just the beginning.  However the mere fact that we have an aspiration is not enough.

When we are children we often speak of our desires and aspirations.  We are quite vocal about them and tell our parents and grandparents ” when I grow up, I want to be a teacher or a writer or doctor or a pianist” and for many this dream does not come true.

Why is this so?

As a music teacher I have substantial experience to determine who  from my students will or who will not succeed at become the fine pianist or music teacher that they initially set out to become.

APPLICATION!

The student who sets goals and works toward them through practical application i.e practise diligently to develop the skills and techniques that are required of them as well as continue to broaden and develop their music knowledge through the study of theory and musicianship, will undoubtedly reach their goal.

However the student who inquires ” what is the minimum I need to practise?” already tells me that their mind is not firmly on their goal.  In fact this student hopes to achieve their goal with the least amount of effort.

The mere fact that one takes piano lessons does not necessarily imply that the student will become an accomplished performer.  No amount of lessons can create this.  It is what the student does with the knowledge that determines his or her outcome.

And so I use this as an illustration for achieving any desired goal in life.  A goal without a plan of action – how to get there so to speak will be of little or no use. 

Let us say for example you want a healthier body.  What are you doing towards improving it?  what steps have you already taken?

One of first and foremost things would be to look at seeking advice from the experts in that field.  Either a nutritionist or if you are not at that point in your life where you could not afford to do this, there is substantial information available at the tips of our fingers through books or a ‘click’ of a mouse.   

The same goes for anything else you are setting your mind to.  Begin with  acquiring the knowledge that will assist you towards your goals. 

Quite simply it is a matter of

  • Deciding on what you want
  • writing out a plan of action ( that is, how you intend to achieve it)
  • And begin to make steps toward your goal ( i.e start by doing whatever it takes to achieve it)

Now more often than not, when you begin to do this you will notice that you set in motion the Law of Attraction.  That is you begin to align to your goal and things begin to move toward you.  Strangers you never met or knew begin to show up in your life and help you move toward your goal.  Opportunities that were either under your nose or formerly missed show up in your face! 

A whole new set of events begin to take place that help you reach your destination a lot faster than planned.  And it is possible that all of the steps and processes you thought you had to take along the path, you may in fact skip.

The  simple fact is this:  Whatever your desire or goal – just start toward it.  As the Nike ad says ” Just Do It!”

Are you the Michelangelo of your life?

One of the more profound statements that I recall from the hit movie  ‘The Secret’  was from Doctor Joe Vitale who said:  ” You are the Michelangelo of your own life.  The David you are sculpting is you”.

The secret to those who achieve and see their goals realized and those who don’t, actually lies within the phrase above!  We often feel that our lives are beyond our control and a mysterious force has pre-determined who is going to get what they want and who is not and that luck has everything to do with it.

 Like Dr Joe Vitale said, we are the Michelangelo of our own lives.  What that means is that we are master creators.  We can deliberately choose.  We, by our intentions properly directed and focused can be what we want and get what we want.   

 Even if our circumstances are abysmal, we can still choose how we respond to our circumstances!  It’s in our choosing the way we respond that we begin to lift ourselves out of the situations that do not please us or make us happy.

And the funny thing is that the simpleset things that we need to do move toward what we want or want to become doesn’t cost a thing!

All you need is to :

  • Know what you want!  That is:  be clear about it to the tiniest detail. 

Let’s say that you were describing the kind of house you wanted.   Let’s say your dream house.  Then I would expect you to give me detail about the house such as:

How big?  what would it be made of? brick or double brick, or cement rendered?  what about the roof?  corrugated iron or tiles?  If it’s tiles, then what kind?  What color?  What about the guttering?  downpipes? What about the flooring?  timber floating floors?  Great!  What kind of wood?  What color? 

What tiles do you want in the kitchen and bathroom?  What color would they be ? What about the vanity, shower and bathtub?  Would you have a spa bath or not?  What about the taps? 

Then there’s the kitchen? Tasmanian Oak or polyurtherane kitchen?   Have you thought about the kind of splashbacks you want and the appliances? If so,  specifically what brand? What about the kitchen bench tops?  Granite or marble? 

Have you thought about  the landscaping around the house?  What kind of plants do you see?  Then how many garages do you see?  Do you have pool?  What size? Is it above ground or in-ground?  Salt water pool or not?  Is there an outdooor living area to enjoy with family and friends?  And what kind of outdoor furniture do you see?

I could go on and on.  The point here is that when you do an exercise in deciding what you want, you need to go into such intricate detail, because the Universe loves detail and will deliver exactly what you ask it for. 

When I went house hunting quite  some years ago I had not been clear  about much other than I wanted a brick veneer home and I wanted timber flooring throughout the entire house.  That was it!  I didn’t think about anything else.  I thought God kinda ‘knew’ what I wanted, so I didn’t offer more than that.

When I bought the home it had carpet throughout the whole house.  It was brick veneer and I was reasonably happy.  I was happy that God got half of my request right.  I didn’t complain.  The day I moved in I wanted to see what was under the carpet because part of it was lifting in one of the bedrooms.  Guess what was under the carpet?  TIMBER FLOORS!

So I know from experience that the Universe will deliver exactly the picture you hold in your mind.  We are indeed the Michelangelo’s of our lives.  We are the creators of that which we hold in our thoughts.  We are constantly creating every minute we are awake. 

Are you the Michelangelo of your life?  What are you creating?
