Vain Imaginings! What do these two words mean?
Well, let’s start with dictionary definitions.
Vain, in the sense of the phrase means …
1. ineffectual or unsuccessful; futile: vain hopes; a vain effort; a vain war.
2. without real significance, value, or importance; baseless or worthless: vain pageantry; vain display.
3. Archaic. senseless or foolish.
Imaginings means: ideas, stories, etc. that are thoughts in your mind, that are not true, real – they are illusionary
So it is a combination of Two types of falsenesses; Foolish unrealities, insignificant dreams, Worthless idlings.
As we all know two wrongs don’t make a right! So why am i talking about vain imaginings today? Because the world is caught is a linked string of vain imaginings that is slowly strangling it to death! People imagine themselves to be free, but in reality they are financial slaves to the usurers of the world. If a slave imagines he is free, when in reality he is not, is that reality or vain imaginings? It is simply vain imaginings. And yet the myth of freedom is so strong in people that continue to do the same thing over and over and over again! And always hurting themselves and with each new try hoping for different results!
Many people think they have found God, but in reality they are trapped in cults of religions that worship the messenger, not the One who gave Him the message. So most christians are actually Jesusites, not followers of the holy spirit (Christ, I Am, God). Many Muslims are Mohamedites, not followers of God (I Am, Christ, Allah). Most Jews are actually Mosesites, not followers of the truth God (Jehovah, I Am, Christ – there are many names for God!) And so it goes. Most of the people in religions today are following Vain Imaginings – commonly called cults!
They continue to follow the false teachings of their mothers and fathers because they have never sat down and asked themselves, “am i doing the right thing by God?” If they were to honestly ask themselves this question, the scales would fall from their eyes and they would see reality as it is – a bit like Neo downing the pill in “The Matrix.”
We carry forward, never questioning the teaching of our childhood! 1 Corinthians 13:11 says ” When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” Know that nothing changes until something (or someone) changes. You can’t get different results by using the same texhnique over and over and over!
You see, as tiny children we CANNOT THINK or REASON for ourselves, so we just absorb everything we are told, see or hear. We are told many truths and that is good. But we are also told many partial-truths and non-truths and that is not good for us as adults. So we have to go through our thoughts and sort out the untruths and throw them away. Also we have to find our half-truths and complete them. An example? When i was growing up i was told, “Necessity is the mother of invention!” But is that true, half-true or false? Well i know it’s not false by having tested it. Yet I also know that it is only a half-truth because i asked to be shown the full truth by the source of all knowledge! The answer I received was “Necessity is the mother of invention and the father if crime!” Aha! That explains a lot of human behaviour!
How can we work our lives properly on half-truths? It’s like learning to drive and being told that the car only has two gears – first and reverse! We can get to places with these two gears but only very, very slowly! We only have 70 years on this earth and that passes at a blazing speed!(ask any 70 year old and they will tell you it only takes a month to go from 20 to 70 years old with hindsight – because time is relative!) We think we have a lot of time here on earth, but that is only a vain imagining!
In the physical world we are constantly fed untruths and half-truths. An example is advertising. No one ever NEEDS a big expensive, fancy car. We WANT that big expensive, fancy car because advertisers motivate/feed our greed gland, our vanity gland or our desire gland, so we start “feeling” that we need what we actually only want, and will go to great lengths to purchase that item! The feeling that we need a diamond watch is a vain imagining. The feeling that we need a private executive football box is also a vain imagining. The feeling that we need a Maserati car is a vain imagining too! How can you tell?
Well, change your circumstances for a second. Imagine you have every toy in the world and you are on your yacht sipping wine when you fall overboard with all your gold chains and fittings. Gold is heavy! They start dragging you under water and you start drowning! What do you call out for? Diamonds, gold, money, Maseratis? No, of course not. You call out for help. Help to get you back into the air, that you are lacking right now!
And what are you prepared to give at that very moment to be rescued? EVERYTHING! Everything you own, your whole life-time of collecting possessions is suddenly worth nothing at all as compared to air – the thing we take for granted every day! To breath is your only need at that very moment! And you would sacrifice everything to get it. That is the value of truth and knowledge in this world. Truth and knowledge is the very air we breathe spiritually!
Know all great truths and knowledge come from the spiritual world. The world of man carries very little truth towards the realities of life. And what are the fundamental realities of physical life? Death and Taxes! But is that the full truth? No, because these are physical things only and have no account of the spiritual things in life – Love and immortality. Death is simply a physical event where the body and brain are annihilated to release the Soul from this temporary earthbound existence. The soul doesn’t die – it is immortal! We are all spiritual beings having an earthly experience! If we don’t grow into our soul as we age we die spiritually malnourished – like hitler and so many others.
So there are at least 4 things that are inevitable in life death, taxes, Love and rebirth(into the spiritual world). Some of us (read some as many!) will miss the opportunity of rebirth on this world and won’t experience it until we die or have a near death experience. Even Hitler was nudged towards rebirth in his rantings called mein kampf. The holy spirit put words and phrases that, had hitler of read them and understood them he would have been reborn as one of the greatest leaders in the history of mankind!
And what stopped him reading the wise words he wrote? His vain imaginings! I have written a small book (it has only 6 A5 pages in it) called the “Wisdom of Hitler”. These are the promptings of the holy spirit, trying to offer him rebirth. To get them I had to wade through the entire mein kampf (a brutal, ugly, disgusting book). Literally, it was like trying to find diamonds in a cess pool! But they were there. God NEVER leaves anyone to their own devices. Everyday we are offered opportunities to be reborn into the holy spirit, the spiritual realities of life! Ask to be shown one of these opportunities and you will be shown it as a demonstration! You can ask for as many demonstrations as you need!
Look at myself. I died, went over to the other side and returned to this life at the age of 21. Yet it wasn’t until i was 28 i called out to connect with Love/God! Why did it take me another seven years? Because of my own vain imaginings! And what God did (and He may be doing it too you or someone you Love) is to let me make my own life so miserable (through my own actions) that the pain of changing was less than the pain of staying the same! When you reach this stage you are literally spiritually drowning and you don’t think of you childish possessions (vain imaginings) and you simply call out for help! Like the Alcoholics Anonymous Associations say, “you can’t do it (change) without outside help!” Another reality in life is CHANGE. Nothing ever stays the same as it was in the physical world! so the five inevitabilities are: death, taxes, change, Love and rebirth (the rebirth takes place either in your life or at the end of your life – so it is inevitable!)
The moment I asked for help, for change, for a meeting with I Am/Christ/God, my life started changing. Imperceptibly at first and then more and more noticeably as i got towards the “Meeting.” (the change). And then I met my maker and my life changed forever. Not in ways I had conceived (in my further vain imaginings) but in practical, real ways. I was taught to walk the spiritual path with practical feet, to be whole, to be holy(the same thing as whole, but on the spiritual plane.)
I say to you that most of the “rules” that most of the people of the west are living their lives by are simply vain imaginings!
“For the people are wandering in the paths of delusion (vain imaginings) bereft of discernment to see God with their own eyes or hear His Melody with their own ears.”
So what are the realities of life? The realities of life is that we don’t have to live as physical slaves to the “system”. All we have to do is ask to be removed from it – and we will – by meeting with our maker (I Am/Christ/God, call Him what you like. If you are arguing with others on the name of God you are living in a vain imagining! You think God cares what we call Him? What He cares about is that we LOVE HIM!)) and learning the truths of life and detaching yourself from the vain imaginings of the physical world. “But now I Am a Man, I have put aside the childish things of life and have become both mature and as a little child” (i like to laugh and play as well! You may have gathered that to BE as a little child is to have the good qualities of the child (e.g. acceptance of others) not to be childish (immature) in thoughts and actions.)
And that, I think, covers today’s topic. Ask for demonstrations of people spouting out vain imaginings and you will see them right before your very eyes! Ask for a demonstration to reveal the full truth of a half-truth you don’t even know you have and see what a surprise you get! Ask for a demonstration of some nasty person who was offered a connection to Love/God/I Am and the just ignored it! It will surprise you indeed!
And then ask yourself, ” Have I ever done the same thing in my life?” Have I ever followed my vain imaginings instead of the truth? Again you will receive a demonstration and will be surprised by the results! But these demonstrations are all just knowledge on your path to “the Meeting/the Change!”
You can make your choice every day of your life – to turn towards Love/God or to turn away from Love/God! We do this by our actions. Do we lend a hand where we can help or do we simply walk away? Do we react with kindness to someone’s suffering or simply say, “It serves them right!” There is no such as a small act of kindness as all acts of kindness come from a Love base and love is infinite. If we divide infinity, it is still infinite!
The solution to vain imagining is Truth, Knowledge and Certitude. All these three are only available from one source. Are you connected to that source?
