      • Mount Athos on a peninsula off the cost of Greece is one of Europe’s last remaining secrets: a monks’ republic. Access to women is strictly denied and in order to keep unwanted tourists out, visas are granted only to pilgrims and workers. For the first time, a filmmaker was given access to all forms of monastic life on the holy mountain.

Early Christianity

Blessed Mary

According to the Athonite tradition, the Blessed Virgin Mary was sailing accompanied by St John the Evangelist from Joppa to Cyprus to visit Lazarus. When the ship was blown off course to then-pagan Athos, it was forced to anchor near the port of Klement, close to the present monastery of Iviron.

The Virgin walked ashore and, overwhelmed by the wonderful and wild natural beauty of the mountain, she blessed it and asked her Son for it to be her garden.

A voice was heard saying “Ἔστω ὁ τόπος οὗτος κλῆρος σὸς καὶ περιβόλαιον σὸν καὶ παράδεισος, ἔτι δὲ καὶ λιμὴν σωτήριος τῶν θελόντων σωθῆναι” (Translation: “Let this place be your inheritance and your garden, a paradise and a haven of salvation for those seeking to be saved“).

From that moment the mountain was consecrated as the garden of the Mother of God and was out of bounds to all other women.

Islamic Conquest of Egypt

After the Islamic conquest of Egypt in the seventh century, many Orthodox monks from the Egyptian desert tried to find another calm place; some of them came to the Athos peninsula. An ancient document states that monks “built huts of wood with roofs of straw […] and by collecting fruit from the wild trees were providing themselves improvised meals.

 

Fell in Love at 14

Jumped out into Moving Traffic

Coming in back from that store run.

From the side of my eye, saw homey pull back.

He had jumped out on the street; thinking the changed light is for us.

I looked over at him; he looked like the type you can turn to and have sweet little conversations with.

I told him thank God for that Guiding Angel.

Walked A bit

We walked a bit.

Saw the cop car drive by.

He shared with me that one can not be too careful these days.

Continuing that with cop cars having cameras with full 360 degrees view, one needs all kinds of throw offs to make sure things don’t match exact.

We hadn’t walk five meters before he found one such disguise the God’s strategically availed by the scrubs outside the coffee house.

I knew he was going to enthusiastically tell me all the ways one can thrive; AI notwithstanding.

Outfits

The story led to wearing the right outfits.

He rolled his shirt sleeves up as he showed me fresh cuts and wounds from shooting up.

Grew up

He grew up down south.

By fourteen he was hooked on cocaine.

Soon after that someone drew that line.

It was no longer Cane, he graduated to Heroine.

Hit it one time and Feel in Love .

He soon let go of his high school sweet heart.

Letting go of school came shortly thereafter.

 

Street Life

Living off the streets.

Now he is 44 staring at 45.

Stealing and robbing.

In and Out of Jail and Rehab.

 

Lonely and Alone

Lonely and Alone.

But, that is the only way it will work.

Cause even his own mama he will steal from.

 

Today is Different

Today is different.

He already has a stash waiting for him at home.

No need to steal.

 

Miracle

I shared with him that he needs a miracle.

And, he said Yes he agrees.

He is catholic and every Sunday he shows up at Church.

Cause one day God will meet him.

 

Shake Hands

He said there is no reason to shake my hands.

As he did not want to give me what he has.

How We Learn

Background

My deepest friends are teachers.

A teacher

One of my soul mates is a teacher.

Dedicated her life to teaching.

Yet, she tells me in private conversation. I  can not teach anyone.

I have to let them learn their own lessons.

Meditation

Some people only choose love when they have experienced enough hatred

Some people only choose peace when they have gotten sick of war

Some people need to learn their lesson in that way

So they are doing it

So they are playing it out

Pray, Pray

Send the Angels in

If you don’t choose to learn your lesson that way, don’t engage in it

        • These cases are especially compelling when the person perceived something that they could not have perceived physically, considering the position and/or condition of their physical body, when what they perceived was something they did not anticipate or actually contradicted their expectations; and when their perception was verified by a credible third party.
        • This panel will begin with a brief summary of the 2016 book The Self Does Not Die, which contains over 100 cases of NDEs with veridical perception verified by credible third parties, mostly physicians.
        • Then two NDErs whose cases did not appear in the book will describe their NDEs and aftereffects with particular emphasis on veridical aspects of their experiences.
        • Among the aftereffects they will discuss are they knowledge that humans are worthwhile, divine, and loved more than we could ever imagine, a sense of enhanced connectedness to all of nature, and the ability to use knowledge and light from the angels and God to guide acts of service and even a career of service.

The Failings of the Church

  1. Questioner :- Charles
    • Today’s Church is rampant with bio-politics, hate, racism, and misappropriation of funds.
    • Why should I associate with the Church bearing in mind Paul’s admonition to the Corinthians
  2. Answer
    • If we preach a life changing Gospel, it is assumed that we are been changed
    • Just because you say you do something in the name of it, does not mean it is
    • Look for that what is real, when you find it, you will know it is
    • Forsake Christ
      • Do not forsake Christ because of something you might have seen somewhere
      • Instead seek him
      • Seek him, and Find Him
      • Jesus says if you seek me, you will find me
      • Look for something that is real
      • Ask questions
    • Go to Church
      • Went to Church and noticed the hypocrisy
      • And, then met one or two people
      • And, watched them talk about Jesus
        • They meant it
        • And, they had some things different about their lives
