Am I A Sinner?

Right now, when you think about God looking at your life, what sin comes to mind? What are you embarrassed about? What keeps you from fellowship with your heavenly Father? Do you feel depressed and guilty? If so, I want you to understand the promises God makes to all of us. This information comes from God’s Word and is to encourage you.Let me begin by asking you a question: Do you think that you’re a small sinner or a big sinner? Most people believe they are small sinners. They have committed sins, but just the small ones, not the big ones. They don’t think that God is super-mad at them. They admit they have told a few white lies, lost their temper once in a while, but they are quick to tell you they go to church, pray and give a little money to God. They haven’t committed adultery, robbed a bank or committed murder. They consider those sins as the big sins. Is that you?


Sin Separates us.


Then, on the other hand, there are some of you listening now who consider yourself to be one of the big sinners. You’ve done it all, over and over again. You have committed adultery or had premarital sex with your boyfriend or girlfriend. You are a slave to drugs or alcohol. Maybe you’ve had a secret abortion, you’ve indulged in homosexuality, or you’ve stolen money from someone, or worse, in anger, you tried to hurt or kill someone. Because you’ve done, and are still doing these sins, you have put yourself in the category of being a big sinner. You assume God doesn’t love you, and would never forgive you.

Well, now I want to make a statement to all of you that may surprise you. If you have never seen yourself as a big sinner, standing before God with no hope of impressing Him by your life and actions, then I believe you will never understand why the gospel is good news. You will never really experience God’s joy and peace. Only when you realize you are in desperate need of God’s mercy will you ever come to God the way you need to come.

Let me see if I can illustrate for you what I mean. In Galatians 5 there is a list of fifteen sins which Scripture says, “Those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” [Gal. 5:19-21] The first five are what many see as the big sins. They are sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, and witchcraft. At the end of the list are the sins of drunkenness and orgies. But right in the middle of these so-called big sins, the lists the sins of hatred, strife, jealousy, anger, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy. Any of these sins can also keep you out of heaven. You might not think they are big, but God does.

Look at these sins a little more closely. Have you ever said you hated anyone? Hatred includes taking out one’s own vengeance on another person by some action, then by trying to hurt or destroy that person by what you say. Have you committed that sin? Strife or discord means a person has a contentious attitude toward others and keeps stirring things up between people. The sin of jealousy is the sick feeling you get when you are offended that someone is living a higher lifestyle than you are able to live. They have a bigger home, drive a nicer car, and work at a better job than you do. And you don’t like that one little bit. The Bible then lists rage or outbursts of anger. How often have you lost your temper? Next is the sin of selfish ambition. Do you only really care about accumulating things for yourself? Are you more concerned about what people think of you than what they think about God? Rounding out this list of sins that can keep you out of heaven are dissensions (those who argue and constantly disagree), factions, and envy (the desire to have some advantage or possession which belongs to another).

Have you committed any of these? Remember, these sins are right up there with idolatry and witchcraft. By the way, the sin of idolatry includes putting anything first before God. It can be sports, television, material things, your job, pride. If you put these things first before God, that’s idolatry. So be objective for a moment. Step back and look at your life. If God were to judge your life up to this point, and you have committed more than one of these sins and committed them over and over again, what would He conclude about your life? Would He let you into heaven?

While you’re thinking about that, let me give you another example that is kind of surprising. In 1 Corinthians 6 there is a list of sins which if people do them, they are called “wicked.” This list includes the sexually immoral, idolaters, male prostitutes, homosexual offenders, and thieves. But right after these sins, it mentions “those who are greedy.” Greed is the desire to acquire more than you need or deserve. Then it mentions “slanderers,” those who utter false statements about other people’s character to ruin their reputation. Next, it mentions “swindlers,” those who cheat others to get money, property or something else under false pretenses. Are you guilty of any of these sins? Well, these so-called little sins are listed right along with the big sins. [1 Cor. 6:9-10]

The point that in this life some sins may bring more disastrous consequences. Some sins may hurt the ones we love more than others. Some sins may bring more dire health consequences than others. Before God, there may be different kinds of sin, but they are all damning sin. The reason that we sometimes delude ourselves into thinking we are not big sinners, terrible sinners, is that we constantly compare ourselves with others and not God’s standard.

''Wandering On- Samsara''

Samsara-the Wheel of Existence, literally, the “Perpetual Wandering”-is the name by which is designated the sea of life ever restlessly heaving up and down, the symbol of this continuous process of ever, again and again, being born, growing old, suffering, and dying. (It) is constantly changing from moment to moment, (as lives) follow continuously one upon the other through inconceivable periods of time. Of this Samsara, a single lifetime constitutes only a vanishingly tiny fraction.

Gautama Buddha

Samsara literally means “wandering-on.” Many people think of it as the Buddhist name for the place where we currently live — the place we leave when we go to Nibbana. But in the early Buddhist texts, it’s the answer, not to the question, “Where are we?” but to the question, “What are we doing?” Instead of a place, it’s a process: the tendency to keep creating worlds and then moving into them. As one world falls apart, you create another one and go there. At the same time, you bump into other people who are creating their own worlds, too.

Samsara-our conditioned existence in the perpetual cycle of habitual tendencies and nirvana – genuine freedom from such an existence- are nothing but different manifestations of a basic continuum. So this continuity of consciousness is always present. This is the meaning of Tantra.

Dalai Lama
The play and creativity in the process can sometimes be enjoyable. In fact, it would be perfectly innocuous if it didn’t entail so much suffering. The worlds we create keep caving in and killing us. Moving into a new world requires effort: not only the pains and risks of taking birth but also the hard knocks — mental and physical — that come from going through childhood into adulthood, over and over again. The Buddha once asked his monks, “Which do you think is greater: the water in the oceans or the tears you’ve shed while wandering on?” His answer: the tears. Think of that the next time you gaze at the ocean or play in its waves.

In addition to creating suffering for ourselves, the worlds we create feed off the worlds of others, just as theirs feed off ours. In some cases, the feeding may be mutually enjoyable and beneficial, but even then the arrangement has to come to an end. More typically, it causes harm to at least one side of the relationship, often to both. When you think of all the suffering that goes into keeping just one person clothed, fed, sheltered, and healthy — the suffering both for those who have to pay for these requisites, as well as those who have to labor or die in their production — you see how exploitative even the most rudimentary process of world-building can be.

According to Buddhist practice, there are three stages or steps. The initial stage is to reduce attachment towards life. The second stage is the elimination of desire and attachment to this samsara. Then in the third stage, self-cherishing is eliminated

Dalai Lama

This is why the Buddha tried to find the way to stop samsara-ing. Once he had found it, he encouraged others to follow it, too. Because samsara-ing is something that each of us does, each of us has to stop it him or her self alone. If samsara were a place, it might seem selfish for one person to look for an escape, leaving others behind. But when you realize that it’s a process, there’s nothing selfish about stopping it at all. It’s like giving up an addiction or an abusive habit. When you learn the skills needed to stop creating your own worlds of suffering, you can share those skills with others so that they can stop creating theirs. At the same time, you’ll never have to feed off the worlds of others, so to that extent, you’re lightening their load as well.

It’s true that the Buddha likened the practice for stopping samsara to the act of going from one place to another: from this side of a river to the further shore. But the passages where he makes this comparison often end with a paradox: the further shore has no “here,” no “there,” no “in between.” From that perspective, it’s obvious that samsara’s parameters of space and time were not the pre-existing context in which we wandered. They were the result of our wandering.

Long is the night of the sleepless. Long is the road for the weary. Long is samsara (the cycle of continued rebirth) for the foolish, who have not recognized the true teaching.

Gautama Buddha

For someone addicted to world-building, the lack of familiar parameters sounds unsettling. But if you’re tired of creating incessant, unnecessary suffering, you might want to give it a try. After all, you could always resume building if the lack of “here” or “there” turned out to be dull. But of those who have learned how to break the habit, no one has ever felt tempted to samsara again.

The Moirai (Moerae)-'' Decide Fates Or Person's Destiny''

The Moirai (Moerae), also referred to as the Fates, represent the idea of “destiny” in Greek mythology. The Ancient Greeks had a habit of creating deities to represent abstract concepts as a way of explaining their world. However, the Moirai do more than just represent destiny – they are the personification of it. It is understood that the Moirai controlled people’s lives in different ways from the time they were born to the time they died.

It is interesting to note that the word, Moirai, meant a portion or a part of a whole in Ancient Greek. The connotation here is that it referred to a portion of a bounty, as would be the case if people were to divide up a treasure. Thus, the Morai were seen as being keepers of a person’s destiny, or her specific allotment of life. Here’s more information about who the Moirai were and the role they played in Greek mythology.

Who the Moirai (Moerae) Were

It is largely understood that the Moirai, or the Fates, were three of the six children that Themis, the goddess of Justice, and Zeus, the king of the gods, had together. The other three children were the Horai, or the Hours. The names of the three Fates were Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos. They each had their own, unique characteristics.

  • Clotho. She was known as the spinner because she “spun” the very thread of a person’s life. She spun the thread from her Distaff directly to her Spindle.
  • Lachesis – Once Clotho spun the thread, Lachesis would measure it for each person. Each person had different lengths of thread, indicated that they all had different life spans.
  • Atropos – She was responsible for cutting the thread, which indicates that she controlled when life would end. She also chose the way each person would die.

As you can see, Clotho was always associated with the beginning of life. She essentially created it by spinning the thread. Lachesis controlled the length of a person’s life, and Atropos was always associated with death. Thus, the three Fates essentially represent Birth, Life, and Death.

The Appearance of the Moirai

Unlike their siblings, the Horai, the Moirai were always depicted as ugly old women. Note that the Horai were always depicted as young, beautiful women. The Ancient Greeks appeared to have feared the Moirai. After all, one of the Fates (Moerae) were said to have controlled every aspect of a person’s life, including their death. As a result, most Ancient Greeks feared them and as a result, they imagined them with unflattering appearances. They were also depicted as crippled, stern, inflexible, and severe. They were usually depicted together as a group of three and they were often depicted with their objects. For instance, Clotho was usually shown with her spindle and Atropos was depicted with her cutting shears.

The Moirai, also referred to as the Fates, were an interesting part of Greek mythology. They were three of the children of Themis and Zeus and they were always associated with a person’s destiny.

''Living On A Moment''

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.

To live in the moment, or now, means being conscious, aware and in the present with all of your senses. It means not dwelling on the past, nor being anxious or worrying about the future.

When we concentrate our attention on the present we focus on the task at hand. We give our full attention to what we are doing and we let go of outcomes.

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.

Seizing each moment in life allows us to prolong its value and make it more meaningful. Rather than seeking quantity of time, when we live in the moment we enjoy and savor every minute. We don’t sacrifice quality for quantity.

Of course, this doesn’t mean we don’t need to plan, set goals or prepare for the future. We can do all of these things and still enjoy each moment as it unfolds.

For instance, if we have set a goal to exercise each day, we would carry on with it while enjoying the actual process, or moment, of exercising (or at least be in the moment of it).

When we train ourselves to live in each moment, we immerse ourselves in it and begin to discover its beauty and wonder. We learn to focus and how to manage our energy. Professional athletes understand and employ this kind of focus very well. They know that accomplishment and success are a result of the skillful management and balancing of energy.

To make every moment count we must embrace it. Everything we do and every person we come in contact with deserves our full attention. Even when resting we should savor the moment. It gives us the opportunity to recharge, renew and gain clarity.

Quite often we put huge expectations on ourselves and our lives. We rush to do this, hurry up with that, without actually enjoying the process. What’s the rush? Where do we think we’re going?

If we don’t stop and think about where we’re at, we’re probably missing the point. Instead, when we appreciate each moment and garner the lessons from it, we live consciously, purposefully and responsibly.

Likewise, when we live in the past and don’t let go of painful experiences, perceived wrongs, or difficult times, we condemn ourselves to a present and future of the same. We cannot change the past. We can, however, come to terms with it, know that it’s over, and move on.

Living in the present moment creates the experience of eternity.

Living in the moment means letting go of the past and trust in the future. When we are positive and optimistic in the present, we open the possibility of a positive and promising future. We owe it to ourselves to make every moment count – now!

Tips To Live On The Moment:-

  • Train your mind to focus on the current activity.
  • Engage in, and feel what you are doing. Enjoy the process.
  • Learn relaxation techniques in order to be present in each moment.
  • Take notice of your surroundings – sights, sounds, smells, ambiance.
  • Listen attentively to the conversation of others, music, even silence.
  • Savor your food and drink. Taste each morsel.

''Understanding Different Dimensions Of Universe''


When someone mentions “different dimensions,” we tend to think of things like parallel universes — alternate realities that exist parallel to our own, but where things work or happened differently. However, the reality of dimensions and how they play a role in the ordering of our universe is really quite different from this popular characterization.

To break it down, dimensions are simply the different facets of what we perceive to be a reality. We are immediately aware of the three dimensions that surround us on a daily basis – those that define the length, width, and depth of all objects in our universes.

Beyond these three visible dimensions, It is believe that there may be many more. In fact, the theoretical framework of superstring theory posits that the universe exists in 10 different dimensions. These different aspects are what govern the universe, the fundamental forces of nature, and all the elementary particles contained within.

The first dimension, as already noted, is that which gives it length (i.e., the x-axis). A good description of a one-dimensional object is a straight line that exists only in terms of length and has no other discernible qualities.

Add to it a second dimension, height (i.e., the y-axis), and you get an object that becomes a two-dimensional shape (e.g., a square).

The third dimension involves depth (i.e., the z-axis), and it gives all objects a sense of the area and a cross-section. The perfect example of this is a cube, which exists in three dimensions and has a length, a width, a depth, and, therefore, also a volume.

Beyond these three lie the seven dimensions that are not immediately apparent to us, but that can still be perceived as having a direct effect on the universe and reality as we know it.


It’s believe that the fourth dimension is time (we already know this one, for the most part), which governs the properties of all known matter at any given point. Along with the three other dimensions, knowing an object’s position in time is essential to plotting its position in the universe.

The other dimensions are where the deeper possibilities come into play, and explaining their interaction with the others is where things get particularly tricky for physicists.

According to string theory, the fifth and sixth dimensions are where the notion of possible worlds arises. If we could see on through to the fifth dimension, we would see a world slightly different from our own that would give us a means of measuring the similarity and differences between our world and other possible ones.

In the sixth, we would see a plane of possible worlds, where we could compare and position all the possible universes that start with the same initial conditions as this one (i.e., the Big Bang). In theory, if you could master the fifth and sixth dimensions, you could travel back in time or go to different futures.

In the seventh dimension, you have access to the possible worlds that start with different initial conditions. Whereas in the fifth and sixth dimensions the initial conditions were the same and subsequent actions were different, here, everything is different from the very beginning of time. The eighth dimension again gives us a plane of such possible universe histories, each of which begins with different initial conditions and branches out infinitely (that’s why they are called infinities).

In the ninth dimension, we can compare all the possible universe histories, starting with all the different possible laws of physics and initial conditions. In the tenth and final dimension, we arrive at the point at which everything possible and imaginable is covered. Beyond this, nothing can be imagined by us lowly mortals, which makes it the natural limitation to what we can conceive in terms of dimensions.


The existence of these additional six dimensions that we cannot perceive is necessary for string theory in order for there to be consistency in nature. The fact that we can perceive only four dimensions of space can be explained by one of two mechanisms:

    1. The extra dimensions are compactified on a very small scale.
    2. Our world may live on a three-dimensional submanifold corresponding to a brane on which all known particles besides gravity would be restricted (a.k.a., brane theory).

If the extra dimensions are compactified, then the extra six dimensions must be in the form of a Calabi–Yau manifold. While imperceptible as far as our senses are concerned, they would have governed the formation of the universe from the very beginning. That’s why its believe that by peering back through time, using telescopes to spotlight from the early universe (i.e., billions of years ago), they might be able to see how the existence of these additional dimensions could have influenced the evolution of the cosmos.

Much like other candidates for a grand unifying theory (a.k.a., the theory of everything), the belief that the universe is made up of ten dimensions (or more, depending on which model of string theory you use) is an attempt to reconcile the standard model of particle physics with the existence of gravity. In short, it is an attempt to explain how all known forces (gravity, electromagnetism, the electromagnetic weak and strong force) within our universe interact and how other possible universes themselves might work.


''Human Connected To Universe''

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.

Our connection to the Earth – to Nature – is one of the most important connections humans have. Actually, it is the most important.

Without Nature, without the Earth, we would not exist. Period.

The Earth’s connection to the Sun – to our Solar System – is one of the most important connections our planet has.

Our Sun’s connection to the Galaxy is one of the most important connections our Solar System has.

Our Galaxy’s connection to the Universe, and beyond, is one of the most important connections our Galaxy has.

Our Universe’s connection to the mysteries beyond is one of the most important connections our Universe has.

Without this multi-level, inner-connection, nothing would exist. Period.

The Connection With Universe-

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.- Buddha!!

Whatever happens to the Earth happens to us. If the planet heats up, we heat up. When the Earth changes its axis position, we change our axis position. We have long forgotten that the magnetic field inside our bodies lines up with the Earth’s magnetic field, and when the Earth’s magnetism shifts, we physically shift with it.

In the same way, the massive and diverse Universe, with its trillions of galaxies and solar systems, influences everything in the same way to assure stability and balance.

The Earth provides our well being through its well being. Our Sun secures the Earth’s well being through its well being. Our Solar System and our Galaxy’s well being remain stable through the Universe’s well being … and on and on beyond the outer limits of our known Universe.

This connection is why your physical body and all life on Earth have such extraordinary resiliencies.

Like The Human Body

All the planets in our Solar System are in constant motion. Like the human body, all planets resonate, they circulate heat, and they move around a central sun.

Like humans, the Solar System produces energy, it circulates heat, and it moved around a central Galaxy.

Just like you, the Galaxy resonates, it circulates heat, and it moves around a central Universal core.

So you see, every human being, each planet, every sun and star, and each galaxy travels at its own pace and on its own track. Everything in this vast Universe is in its own little world.

Yet ….

We are all connected. We all move together in a fine-tuned and very precise symphony.


Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.

The next time you feel isolated, different, or possibly “superior” to any other form of life, think about this connection. Humans are but a small piece of a massive creation.


Changes in the Universe affect our Galaxy. Changes in our Galaxy effect our Solar System. Changes in our Solar System affect the Earth. And changes in our planet affect human beings – both are the same yet individual.


Learn to balance your self because this will keep you connected to mysteries far beyond the Universe.

''My Religion Is Humanity''

Humanity is the true religion of mankind. There is no difference among the people. All are like you and me. All belong to the one category that is human, the human race. Without humanity or the feeling of kindness, a human could indulge in any negative activities within the society.

Buddha once said, “Rule your mind or it will rule you.

Negative qualities which man without humanity is like, start telling lies. Inculcate the habit of stealing others property. Always jealous of others and try to harm people around him and so on.

“Anything that helps to unite all and develop pure divine love and universal brotherhood, is Dharma. Anything that creates discord, split and disharmony and foments hatred, is Adharma. Dharma is the cementer and sustainer of social life. The rules of Dharma have been laid down for regulating the worldly affairs of men. Dharma brings as its consequence happiness, both in this world and in the next. Dharma is the means of preserving one’s self.

My Religion (Dharma) Is Humanity-

It is a fact, Religions today no longer serve the purpose for which they came into existence. The very basic theme of each religion was to teach, how to love each other and bring us closer to ourselves and to God. Today the opposite is happening, Religions are not uniting but dividing us. Forget the differences from religion to religion, each now has so many divisions. The biggest problem Religions are bringing in is Fundamentalism and intolerance, giving birth to Fanatics, who are ready to destroy our freedom, just in the name of religion.

It is about time, to rectify our vision, rectify our way of life, and mold them into what the various religions originally desired. Humanity is the religion which all religions preach, so why not follow it as such, with just a few basic themes to practice and follow in our day to day lives:-

  1. God has sent us as a visitor to this planet Earth, with a Visitor’s visa, having a fixed expiry date. So live and enjoy your stay as a visitor, rather than amassing wealth and trying to become a permanent resident. Remember, this visa is a single entry, non-renewable and non-endorsable.
  2. Love is the only baggage you are allowed to bring and the only baggage you can take back. All remaining things which you acquire during your visit, you have to leave them behind. The more love you can carry the more valuable you become, as in His Kingdom, beings are valued and honored by the amount of love they possess.
  3. To make our visit enjoyable, God gives us a family network, father, mother, brothers & sisters. As charity begins at Home, we should learn and practice to share that baggage of love with the family. Once that is achieved, we can move forward to share our love with friends, associates, co-workers etc.
  4. United we stand, divided we fall, imagine if the World could be one, no Religions, no borders, no wars. The basics all begin at home, if the family can stand as one, that will be the beginning. If brothers & sisters learn to love and live in harmony, that is the beginning.
  5. No matter what, we cannot change our present destiny. So what is the need to rush in our day to day lives, why to have the desire to get more than what we are destined for? Let’s do whatever we do today with full sincerity and leave the results to God, and to the fruits of our actions. Our destiny of tomorrow depends on our actions of today.
  6. Peace is within us, Love is within us, God is within us. That means, God is Love, Love is God, and the understanding of this truth gives us that internal Peace.
  7. When a child is born, the only thing he/she knows is love. The rest we teach, hatred, jealousy, greed, even terrorism. The biggest up-bringing we can give our children is that of love. A loving atmosphere in our home is the biggest foundation we can give to our children. We do not have the power to change their destinies, as each’s destiny is pre-ordained by God.
  8. The power we do have is that of Love, as this is within us. As every parent wants the best for each of his children, with a loving upbringing we certainly can chart the same destiny for all of them, a destiny of Love, Peace, and Happiness.
  9. As we sow, so shall we reap, this is the age-old saying, but how true!

Sow seeds of Hatred and reap tons of Hatred

Sow seeds of Jealousy and reap tons of Jealousy

Sow seeds of Terror and reap tons of Terror

So why not sow seeds of Love and reap tons of Love!

Love is not something which can be given by force, but Religions, as they stand today, are given by force, by parents to children. Anything given by force can never have fruitful results. Love is realized from within, with loving actions, loving emotions, and loving feelings, and the results are always fruitful. On the other hand, Religions given by force can turn us into what we are not, and take us miles away from God and Humanity.

Humanity truly stands out as a religion of Love, Peace, and Happiness

The only force in this is the force of Love!

As God is Love and Love is God

There is nothing else down here or above

Just the force of Love!

And the desire to be human, the desire to love and be loved

So let’s embrace Humanity and begin a new way of life.
