If you’d like to listen to this article, rather than read it, I discussed it in a live chat on my YouTube channel. You can view the videos and reference links on the original article page here: http://lothealing.com/im-no-longer-a-slave-are-you-free/
The outcome of our day relies heavily on what we do with the very first thought that occurs to us when we wake up. Oftentimes when we’re tired from a poor night’s sleep, we may get upset that we’re no longer sleeping and not refreshed. We may consider trying to get a little bit more sleep and a lot of the time if we do get more sleep, we may wake up more grumpy or resentful that the sleep didn’t really seem to help that much anyway. We don’t want to be grumpy. We don’t want to be tired.
We all want to be happy, energized, and excited for the day. So, why aren’t we?
Why aren’t we happy? If you tried to answer that question, the answers might go on and on and on. People today are very good at complaining.
Commercialism Is Built On Complaints
Our society, by and large, is built upon complaints. The advertising agencies of the world are focused on making sure you feel like you’re not satisfied with what you have. That’s their whole job, to make you dissatisfied so that you will want what they’re selling.
"A journalist asked me, Most people have a better standard of living today than Louis XIV did in his day. So why are so many people unhappy?
What you have doesn’t make you unhappy. What you want does.
And want is created by us, the marketers. Marketers trying to grow market share will always work to make their non-customers unhappy." — Seth Godin
There are plenty more articles online discussing the fact that advertisement companies’ goal in life is to make us unhappy or not satisfied with the way things are right now. It’s very clear as to why. If we’re content with who we are, what we own, where we live, then we don’t need to buy more stuff. The advertisers would be out of jobs.
What You Want Makes You Unhappy
We Get What We Need
Are you alive? Yes. Your heart’s beating and you’re breathing while reading this? Of course. Then you have what you need. The air is abundant and our bodies need far less food then we think we do. The hunger pains shortly after a meal are often not a sign that our bodies are starving, but that our bodies are starving out the parasites and bad bacteria. That’s discussed a bit more in the Deliverance From Demons article.
God Provides What Everyone Needs
Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than clothes? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for clothes? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
God even provides rain to the unrighteous (Matthew 5:45) which meant that the unrighteous would have their crops grow and have enough food to sustain themselves. For God does not wish the wicked to perish, but is long-suffering hoping that over time they will repent and live (Ezekiel 18:23).
Everyone, the unrighteous and the righteous, get what they need. God doesn’t go around killing others. Our sin is what leads us to end up dead. God is constantly providing us with ways to get healthy and live.
Our bodies are are in a constant state of trying to save ourselves from harm, packing away the toxins that we let in as fast as they can. It’s actually theorized that parasites are helpful because they take in the excess heavy metals that we’ve placed in our bodies, which is why when you go after the parasites but not the metals you can end up more sick (the dead parasites release the toxins again).
There may also be a correlation between vaccines and parasites concerning the rise in autism and why so many of those children end up with parasites. Some thought they were injecting parasites (because many autistic children had them), but it may be that the children just are so toxic from the heavy metals in the vaccines that the parasites showed up to contain the metals. The more metal you have, the more parasites you may end up with. There are mind-controlling parasites, and so this may be why some autistic children act irrationally (it’s likely the parasites controlling the children). Parasites want to live, and thus they will make a fuss if they can’t get their sugary snack, for instance.
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt: "So, in the biological literature, there is a lot of articles published that show that many parasites have the ability to extract toxic metals from their host and condense it into their skin, into their cell wall. Many of the parasitic worms, ascaris, tape works, echinococcus, hook worms (there are many of them) have the ability to extract from you your lead, your mercury and condense it into your body. That has two effects. One effect is you will survive because you don’t die anymore from the mercury toxicity, but the other effect is now we have to live with the worm. It’s a deal that’s made. And of course, that moves the parasite really out of the definition of a “parasite” and it becomes a symbiotic creature that we all need right now for our survival in our ever increasing toxic world. Our genetically present detox systems, detox enzyme are insufficient for the environment that we have created. And so our own detox system plus the parasites are giving us a fair chance of survival because of that."
The point here is that even though we’re surrounded by chemicals from the sky, chemicals in the water, GMOs, injecting heavy metals and other pharmaceuticals, we’re still alive. How are we still alive?
We get what we need. A child that might have died after having heavy metals injected into them, might get parasites to soak up the metals so they can live.
God is providing all of what we need all of the time. The parasite sucking up metals isn’t a great situation, but it is better than a dead child because it gives the parent time to figure out what’s wrong and fix it.
We Want More Than We Need
It’s only natural to not want to just get by with the bare minimums, but, usually, at the very heart of wanting more than what we actually need is an ungratefulness for the fact that we do actually get what we need. People are always looking for more, more, more, thinking they need it when the reality is they only “want” it. They’re getting what they need, but they aren’t grateful for getting what they need.
If you’re constantly thinking you need something that you don’t currently have, you can’t be happy with what you do have.
When we focus on what we don’t have, we’re going to be in a state of ungratefulness. When we focus on what we do have, and how our (actual) needs are being met, we’re going to be in a state of gratefulness. The two are on opposite ends of the spectrum.
Ungratefulness: The Fall Of Mankind?
You can read more about the Essenes and the Primal Adam doctrine (http://www.lothealing.com), but basically the early followers of Jesus (Yehoshua), according to the Clementine literature, didn’t believe that Adam sinned, but that mankind, in general, sinned. They believed Adam, who was made in God’s image, wouldn’t have sinned (because that makes God look like a sinner if he did). They believed Adam was a prophet having YHWH’s Holy Spirit inside, etc. From the Clementine Homilies 8:
Chapter X. The Original Law
“But thus the matter stands. The only good God having made all things well, and having handed them over to man, who was made after His image, he who had been made breathing of the divinity of Him who made him, being a true prophet and knowing all things, for the honour of the Father who had given all things to him, and for the salvation of the sons born of him, as a genuine father preserving his affection towards the children born of him, and wishing them, for their advantage, to love God and be loved of Him, showed them the way which leads to His friendship, teaching them by what deeds of men the one God and Lord of all is pleased; and having exhibited to them the things that are pleasing to Him, appointed a perpetual law to all, which neither can be abrogated by enemies, nor is vitiated by any impious one, nor is concealed in any place, but which can be read by all. To them, therefore, by obedience to the law, all things were in abundance,—the fairest of fruits, fullness of years, freedom from grief and from disease, bestowed upon them without fear, with all salubrity (healthfulness) of the air.”
Chapter XI. Cause of the Fall of Man
“But they, because they had at first no experience of evils, being insensible to the gift of good things, were turned to ingratitude by abundance of food and luxuries, so that they even thought that there is no Providence (Divine Guidance), since they had not by previous labour got good things as the reward of righteousness, inasmuch as no one of them had fallen into any suffering or disease, or any other necessity; so that, as is usual for men afflicted on account of wicked transgression, they should look about for the God who is able to heal them. But immediately after their despite, which proceeded from fearlessness and secure luxury, a certain just punishment met them, as following from a certain arranged harmony, removing from them good things as having hurt them, and introducing evil things instead, as advantageous.”
This suggests that mankind, in the Garden of Eden (remember the early followers may have thought the fall of Adam was a parable for the fall of mankind in general), had everything they could possibly want, but rather than being grateful, they took it for granted. When they slipped from the state of gratefulness into ungratefulness, things got worse, and there was no longer abundance in fruits, years, healthy air, etc.
The Law Of Attraction
In the Clementine Homilies 8 chapter on the cause of the fall of man, it states there was a “certain arranged harmony” that removes good things and introduces evil things when you fall from gratitude into ungratefulness. According to the previous chapter, with gratefulness comes abundance of good things.
According to the Law of Attraction you attract what frequency you’re emitting. When you are ungrateful, you are attracting things to be ungrateful about. When you’re upset, you attract things to be upset about. When you’re focused on the positive, (look for the silver lining of any incident) you will start to see more positive things.
Could it be that the “certain arranged harmony” spoken of in the Clementine Homilies 8 was the law of attraction before the “law of attraction” term came into use? The word “harmony” means an agreement or being in parallel with something else. The “New Age” movement has promoted the quote, “Your vibe attracts your tribe,” meaning when you are on one frequency (vibration) you attract others (your tribe) who are on the same (or parallel) frequency. That is a harmony because you are in agreement with them concerning at what level you are all vibrating on.
As I spoke about in this video, the opposite is true also. When you resist a lower frequency you repel people of that lower frequency away from you. “Resist the devil and he will flee.” So, your vibe repels the people who are not your tribe.
The vibration of being grateful, content, etc. is diametrically opposed to the vibration of ungratefulness and anger. When you are ungrateful, it’s usually because you are dissatisfied in some way, and want things to be different. If you want things to be different, you may be a bit angry or unhappy that things are the way they are right now. These vibrations would naturally repel the vibration of being grateful and content as those vibrations can’t harmonize with being angry or ungrateful (you’d get dissonance instead).
This is why if you’re lonely (ungrateful – feeling like you lack a mate), you might not want to listen to a song about how much a couple is in love forever and ever (they’re happy and grateful). It will grate on your nerves. But if you find a mate, and get married, you might love that same song. The song didn’t change, you changed your vibration and now are in harmony with it.
In the same way, our creator, YHWH, is shining His light into the world on the agape love frequency. In order to hear from Him, we want to tune our frequency up to His. He will not change frequencies to meet us, just like a song that’s been recorded is not going to change frequencies to suit your emotional whims and a radio station is not going to change their frequency depending on who’s listening.
YHWH is eternally broadcasting on the agape love, grateful, merciful, respectful frequency. When we align with that frequency we will feel fantastic and become “one with God”. According to the law of attraction (or harmony) the negative emotions will be repelled from us as we climb higher and higher into that love frequency.
As I discussed in the article on forgiving others and ourselves, we are slaves to whoever or whatever can trigger us, or “push our buttons.” The only way to be truly free is to forgive everyone. This is why we see Jesus (Yehoshua) forgiving the people who wanted to kill him. He said they, “know not what they do,” because when people are on the opposite end of the spectrum, they are spiritually blinded.
As discussed on the Essenes page the early followers of Jesus (Yehoshua) were called “The Way” because Jesus (Yehoshua) taught the way to be saved, and in the article “The S/Word of God” I discuss how the “Word” was the doctrine that the prophets taught, and that doctrine was the Torah, which was the “light of the world”.
The light convicts us of our sin because in God there is no sin. That sin is dissonant to the frequency God is transmitting.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that does evil hates the light, and doesn’t come to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
We’re given the option of life or death. Choose life.
John 1:4 In the word (or doctrine/commandments) was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Luke 4:18 The Spirit of YHWH is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim deliverance to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to release the oppressed, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
He gave sight to the blind, not just physically, but the spiritually blinded people also. and he preached the good news, that we can be free from sin, and can be one with God.
What Do We Do With This Knowledge?
It seems to me that if the “sin” was actually being ungrateful, complaining, being angry, unforgiving, etc, and Jesus (Yehoshua) taught us to forgive, love one another, even our enemies (even people who want to murder or rape, etc), and count everything as a blessing (even when we’re “attacked”), then to become one with God, we have to do just as Jesus (Yehoshua) taught.
We can’t stay angry at others who we perceive as our enemies. As I discussed earlier it just means we’re their willful slaves until the day we forgive them. Also, when we sin, we’re a slave to sin.
John 8:34 Jesus replied, “Truly, truly, I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.
And sin is lawlessness (1 John 3:4), which is the opposite of the law (Torah/Light which leads to life).
Romans 6:16 Do you not know that when you offer yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves to the one you obey, whether you are slaves to sin leading to death, or to obedience leading to righteousness?
The following (short 4 minute) video discusses the scriptural view of slavery. “Slaves” or servants worked for their “Lord.” The word “Lord” just meant someone over others in authority, and the father in a family was often seen as the “lord of the household.” Sarah called her husband, Abraham, “Lord” (1 Peter 3:6), for example. When we say, Jesus (Yehoshua) is our “Lord” it means we do what he asks us to do. This is why when people call him, “Lord” and break the law (Torah), he asks them why they bothered calling him “Lord” if they weren’t going to do what he said to do.
We Decide Who Our Master Is
We can willfully choose to sin (which make sin our Lord), or we can willfully choose to resist “the devil,” follow “the way” to the Father. The choice is up to us, individually, and no one else.
When we choose to sin, we’re deciding that we want to be a slave or servant of sin. When we reject sin, we’re saying that we now want to be a servant of YHWH. When we serve YHWH, instead of sin, we get freedom.
Psalm 119:45 I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments.
There is freedom in the law, freedom in forgiving, freedom in not judging others before we’ve judged ourselves, etc. It’s not our job to be the judge, and executioner of the “bad guys.” Too many people are worried about what other people are doing without focusing on cleaning up themselves inwardly yet. When we heal ourselves first, raise our vibration, we will repel the “evil” and attract the “good.”
The Clementine Homilies 8 also speaks on the demons as being our “lords” by our own choice. The following was the law from YHWH to the demons after the flood.
Chapter XIX. The Law to the Giants or Demons
"‘These things seem good to the all-seeing God, that you lord it over no man; that you trouble no one, unless any one of his own accord subject himself to you, worshipping you, and sacrificing and pouring libations, and partaking of your table, or accomplishing anything else that they ought not, or shedding blood, or tasting dead flesh, or filling themselves with that which is torn of beasts, or that which is cut, or that which is strangled, or anything else that is unclean.
But those who betake themselves to my (YHWH’s) law, you not only shall not touch, but shall also do honour to, and shall flee from, their presence. For whatsoever shall please them, being just, respecting you, that you shall be constrained to suffer.
But if any of those who worship me (YHWH) go astray, either committing adultery, or practising magic, or living impurely, or doing any other of the things which are not well-pleasing to me, then they will have to suffer something at your hands or those of others, according to my order.
But upon them, when they repent, I, judging of their repentance, whether it be worthy of pardon or not, shall give sentence. These things, therefore, ye ought to remember and to do, well knowing that not even your thoughts shall be able to be concealed from Him.'”
Chapter XX. Willing Captives
“Having charged them to this effect, the angel departed. But you are still ignorant of this law, that every one who worships demons, or sacrifices to them, or partakes with them of their table, shall become subject to them and receive all punishment from them, as being under wicked lords. And you who, on account of ignorance of this law, have been corrupted beside their altars, and have been satiated with food offered to them, have come under their power, and do not know how you have been in every way injured in respect of your bodies.
But you ought to know that the demons have no power over any one, unless first he be their table-companion; since not even their chief can do anything contrary to the law imposed upon them by God, wherefore he has no power over any one who does not worship him; but neither can any one receive from them any of the things that he wishes, nor in anything be hurt by them, as you may learn from the following statement.”
Demons have no power over anyone who refuses to sin. But, when we choose to sin, we are giving the demons power over us, “as being under wicked lords.”
Are You Free?
Since we are the ones who have the power to forgive others, and we are the ones who have the power to stop sinning, we are the master (or Lord) of our own fate. We decide whether or not we want to be free, every minute of the day.
At the beginning of this article I discussed a common occurrence where people wake up and get angry first thing. Rather than being ungrateful that we didn’t get “enough” sleep, we could be grateful that we slept. Some people have insomnia and are extremely thankful to get that amount of sleep. Rather than being ungrateful that we’re up early and try to sneak in a nap, we can be thankful that we’re awake before we planned to be because we’ll have more time to get ready. Maybe use the extra time for making a healthier breakfast, meditating, praying, or exercising.
A lot of times people want something, like a new job, new relationship, new gadget, and they focus on not having it. That means they’re stuck on the frequency of being ungrateful. What the people in the “New Age” or Law of Attraction field say concerning this is that when you’re feeling like that, you’re a vibrational match for not having that thing you want, because you’re so focused on you not having it. But, they say, when you can feel like you have it already, it will come because then you’re a vibrational match for having it.
Gregg Braden discussed the need to feel the feeling of already having it to get your prayer answered in the video "Feeling is the Prayer."
When you wake up and decide to be grateful rather than ungrateful, merciful rather than holding onto grudges, peaceful rather than antagonistic, you’re making conscious decisions to raise your frequency up to God’s. The more you do, the better you will feel. You’ll start to attract higher love-frequency people into your life, and you’ll see lower vibrational people leaving your life (resist the devil and he will flee). I’ve seen that happen over and over again in my life and my friend’s lives.
No matter what situation you’re in, try to focus on the positives, the things you enjoy, and being happy. You don’t always have to visualize what you want and try to force yourself into feeling happy in that situation. That can be difficult if you are so used to not having it.
If you want to raise your frequency another way, try doing something you enjoy, find funny videos online to laugh to, go for a walk and enjoy nature, etc. Just do what makes you content. That feeling of happiness and joy is a form of gratefulness. If someone says something or posts something that’s about to bring you down, try to focus on any silver lining you can find or don’t listen to it or don’t read it, etc.
If you let someone else bring your mood down, you’re allowing them to control your emotional state and becoming a slave to their whims. No matter what situation you’re in, you can always find something to be thankful for. If you can get yourself into a state where you’re focusing on things you’re thankful for and being grateful, you’ll start to attract more things to be thankful for.
It’s up to us to take control over our emotions. When you want to blame something or someone for why you’re in a bad mood, remember you had the decision to focus on the negative rather than try to find something positive to focus on. It was your decision, your control, and you have no one else to blame but yourself. Do not scapegoat your emotional state onto someone else and say it’s their fault. If you do, you’re deciding to be their slave. That’s not freedom.
We were given the freedom to choose life over death, happiness over sadness, mercy over unforgiveness, freedom over slavery. It’s time for us to take the power over our emotional state back and no longer blame others for it.
