'PHOENIX OPERATOR-OWNER MANUAL'- PHOENIX JOURNLA #27 - RECOGNIZING AND DEFINING THE MOST 'DEADLY' SINS OF HU-MAN - 11. VANITY
Jesus Sananda, Lord MIchael and St. Germain
First we will define vanity “1. The condition or character of being vain; conceit. (arrogant self-esteem) 2. Ambitious display; ostentation. 3. The quality or state of being fruitless, useless, etc. 4. That which is vain or unsubstantial.” Now we will define vain “1. Filled with or showing undue admiration for oneself, ones appearance, etc.; conceited. 2. Unproductive; fruitless. 3. Having no real basis; empty: vain hopes. 4. Ostentatious; showy. In VAIN — to no purpose; without effect.
”Vanity, then, is the preoccupation with admiring, changing or altering and displaying one’s physical appearance, image or form because the vain one feels unworthy or INFERIOR WITHIN and often hides behind an ostentatious (pretentious excessive exhibition) display of self or of “superior” arrogance. Narcissism, then, is one who unduly (excessively, unjustly) admires self inside and outside in self-elevated status and separation from others because he feels
Evidence of the obsession for “appearing” beautiful physically according to self-accepted or adopted societal standards is most prominent with both male and females primarily within your Western “civilization”. Many ones have become ruled by and preoccupied with their physical “appearance” which to them most often means being “acceptable” to others. WHY? Because the ANTI-CHRIST has told YOU and given precise limitations of what is “beauty”. For example, within your controlled advertising media you have lovely ones who “model” for products. This, to give you desire for these products by creating “images” for better acceptance value by appealing to your innate drive within, which they have corrupted and erroneously redefined as “SEX” drive, (remember “libido?”) and thus cause you to WANT the product which gives the false “promise” of beauty, “sex” appeal, health, youth, wealth, status, etc., according TO THEIR LIMITED STANDARDS of what YOU must desire of what is beauty, sex appeal, health, youth, wealth, status, etc., which these “models” (you are taught) represent because they “LOOK” good.
With all of the attention given from childhood on only to “physical” appearance, the spirit within shrivels and pines for allowance and acceptance and freedom. This, because the Anti-GOD, which they have now allowed within, slowly crushes and all but destroys the beauty and divineness within which is THE SPIRIT OF LIFE OF GOD/PERFECTION. Very rare it is indeed, this day in “time,” that ones who have become FIRMLY trapped in the “VANITY” game of the adversary, are able to recognize their folly, and thus seek to release this “false” unworthiness and limitation brought about by the superficial preoccupation of physical “image”. You must accept self regardless of physical form. If you recognize that you wear too much weight upon your frame and it is not “healthy” for you, then you must decide to change of it and then DO it. Until then, need you love yourself (God within) less because you look or don’t look a certain way? NO! Commune with your SPIRIT within and find out WHY you consume more than you are able to use. Learn to understand why you do something and then you can work for positive adjustment within. Your physical health represents your “inner” health. Dis-ease of the body is the physical manifestation of what began as DIS-ease in the mind. Clean up your thoughts and your body will be healthy and vibrant as well; it is really so simple, but most of you miss it. You need not miss it anymore now, RIGHT?
We would also like to speak a bit about what is termed “cosmetic” surgery (butchery). Your own statistics show that many women feel less feminine or less attractive if they have “small” breasts. WHY does this happen? Because the images of BIGGER BREASTS and VOLUPTUOUS women are thrust before them beginning when they are children in nearly all of the “controlled” media. These young girls/women feel if they had “bigger” breasts that somehow they will be more acceptable to MEN and thus also be envied by WOMEN. You ones often, on the one hand, do not wish to be considered “sex” objects, yet you desire to fit what you are taught (programmed) is THE “sexually” physically attractive female figure. Don’t you see, beloved ones, you allow doctors to cut upon your bodies and cause you pain and suffering, and often later complications, just to fit an acceptable (to you) physical “image”? Again mankind (adversary) has corrupted the purity of the woman’s “breasts” by making them into hideous “sexual” objects of LUSTFUL desire. The beautiful grace of the feminine body which was created in beautiful perfection of GOD, has been cut into “pieces”... breasts, vagina, mouth, neck, legs, buttocks etc. of PHYSICAL LUSTFUL DESIRE. Do you know WHY the breasts were given unto WOMAN? Not as sexual “objects”, but for the suckling and nurturing of her BABE, a New Creature of GOD. Remember this, women, the next time you think to make yourself bigger breasts! You dishonor GOD within by despising your GIVEN physical form, and wishing to cut it up to make it into some image of what is “appealing”. TO WHO? WHY need you allow imposed images of perfection thrust down your throat? THE answer, precious ones, is YOU MUST NOT ALLOW other’s opinions and “images” to make you feel self-unworthy. Here is a test for you, women. Upon awakening in the morning next, go to your “full-length” vanity mirror and look upon yourself naked. What do you see? Can you look within the vanity mirror WITHOUT your makeup and hairdo, your girdles and padded brassieres and fine garments and SEE GOD? If not, then recognize and UNDERSTAND your transgression, commune with God within, forgive self and do not look again into the mirror until you DO see and know THE LOVE AND BEAUTY OF GOD reflected back!
And the same goes for you ones who are of “male” form of human. You experience vanity somewhat differently than women, but most of you still suffer feelings of inferior unworthiness when you gaze upon your nude body and face. We have seen you! God has listened to YOU! The dialogue within goes something like this: “IF ONLY I was taller, had bigger shoulders, a larger penis, hair upon my chest and/or face, had a flatter stomach, a thinner frame, more muscles, more hair, blue eyes, brown eyes, whiter teeth, tan skin, light skin, and, and...I would be accepted.” Then the dialogue goes something like this, “IF ONLY I had more money, a new car, a better job position, and, and...I would be accepted”. Do you recognize anyone here...you of the male species? Do you see, precious ones, you set yourselves up, by believing the lie of “images”, to always fail in some way or another. ACCEPT your SELF WITHIN, HONOR your physical body which has been loaned to you. For this is the wondrous, beautiful vehicle, given of THE FATHER for YOUR SPIRIT WITHIN OF GOD to experience the wonders of creative spiritual unfoldment upon 3rd dimension physical illusion!
Now, within your Western civilization, nearly every little girl and boy wants to “look” like someone else they have seen in a movie, on the “street” or in an advertisement. They are taught, through the programmed media and advertising, not to accept themselves as a beautiful individual reflection of GOD, because their physical features, they are told, do not measure up to the “ideal” presented of what is acceptable “beauty”. It is no wonder that the cosmetic and related industries make billions of “dollars” off of you ones, because they (the Anti-God) create the “image” and feed the vanity which is the result of ones feeling “they” never quite “measure-up” and will thus seek to improve what is now THEIR perceptions of physical imperfection. Even many of the ones your society defines as “beautiful” while they are young are most often cast aside when they begin to show signs of “aging”. And those who depend only upon their “looks” while they are young, will find themselves FRIGHTENED OF AGING and will thus become EMPTY INSIDE and BITTER because of the rejection by the very ones who “molded” and “accepted” them while they were physically “young” in appearance.
WHAT can you do, parents, to help positively guide your child toward the path of INNER BEAUTY and SPIRITUAL freedom and away from societal imposed “limitations” of acceptance? You must encourage the child first to understand his/her ONENESS WITH ALL...GOD/ATON, other humans, the planet, the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms, other planets, ALL OF LIFE AND ALL OF CREATION. Teach the child about GOD and HIS LOVE for ALL of HIS fragments of self. Teach the child about the Natural Laws of Balance given forth to maintain order upon CREATION and WITHIN CREATION. Teach the child about the nature of God’s gift of Free-will and the PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY EACH ONE HAS to honor GOD within and to SERVE ONLY HIS WILL because He is our JUST and Wise Spiritual Creator/Ruler and KING OF WISDOM. Teach them about the ADVERSARY and HOW IT has fooled many of God’s children. Teach the child that what they may perceive as separation, is only “ILLUSION” of separation and that many other ones they will meet, will not understand this TRUTH because they are spiritually ignorant and duped by the “adversary” of Godness and so then not yet spiritually aware. Teach the child to honor and be tolerant of ALL other human fragments as fragments of THE ONESELF of GOD and THE CREATION. And yet teach the child that he/she must ALSO recognize and not tolerate THE BEHAVIOR (ignorant, prejudiced opinions, misperceptions, and actions) which blatantly break THE LAWS OF Balance of God and Creation. So, teach the child he must defend self within honor of God’s Laws if one of these ignorant/spiritually weak ones wishes to cause harm (in thought, word or deed) to him or another. Teach the child about HIS power to co-create with GOD, and why he must monitor his thoughts, words and deeds in order to recognize his transgressions so that he can create a GODLY world in service to GOD’S WILL. Then you must teach the child to always see, develop and honor the spiritual and loving BEAUTY WITHIN SELF and ALL OTHERS,— which is the BIRTHRIGHT of ALL of GOD’s children. Teach the child the truth that Spiritual Oneness, Beauty, Power, Wisdom and Love WITHIN can never age or die or be taken away from anyone because THE SPIRIT is WHAT IS REAL, IT IS THE SPIRIT OF LIFE THAT EXISTS WITHIN ALL OF THE CREATION in the continual unfolding blossom of JOY and LOVE.
And so, you beloved parents of GOD, must also then LIVE in accordance TO THE LAWS and WILL OF GOD which you have taught the child, to set GOD/ATON’s example of balance and truth which the child will surely follow. So when you have done your duty for GOD/ATON as Parent and have given (to the best of your understanding and awareness) the child the Love and Discipline of GOD’S WILL and THE LAWS OF BALANCE and you yourself, too, have set the example by your actions and behavior, THEN you must release the child to God, that he may choose with his own free-will his experiences and learn about his personal responsibility in the manifestation of LIFE.Is it wrong to want to look YOUR best? Not at all. You must simply and honestly understand WHAT truly motivates you. To be neat and clean in your “dress” and appearance gives honor to self and to GOD as long as you don’t secretly despise and are not ashamed of your appearance and seek to alter it or hide its reflection of beauty. If you are acceptable and give honor to self as YOU ARE in physical form, whether it be male, female, black, white, tall, petite, red hair or grey hair, you will be acceptable and give honor to GOD/ATON. All others? They are individual reflections of God/Aton as well; whatever their limited “human” prejudices and opinions are matters NOT at all to you. Remember, in the “big” picture YOU are not your physical body, YOU are GOD’S fragment occupying physical manifested form of your choosing to allow experience upon this wondrous creation. ALL are beauteous creatures of GOD/ATON, each is different. Isn’t that WONDERFUL?!? God, too, enjoys variety of His creatures within The Creation. Why think you there be so many types of lifeforms on just your tiny planet? Do you not enjoy the varieties and uniqueness of all the creatures and creations within THIS Creation such as of each type of flower, each color of the rainbow, each season of climate, each insect, each animal and each human being?
Are we saying it is “wrong” to wear your “make-up” and have your stylish hairdos and wear upon your bodies fine and beauteous garments? Not at all. You simply must recognize WHY you do these things. If you LOVE WHO and WHAT you are WITHIN and WITHOUT in your nakedness, then enjoy playing your games of make-up and dress-up because YOU enjoy it, it is FUN, you can afford to and it gives you happiness to do so, not because you despise your body and countenance for its “perceived” imperfections”! Or because you wish to “impress” others as to the finery of your jewels and garments, that somehow you are “finer” too. For example, you ones have “designer” everything now. (Such as, cars, furniture, appliances, clothing, cosmetics). Well, some “designers” have generated more “prestige” and admiration than others. Do you know many simply copy other designs? And many of your more celebrated and prestigious designers, use the creative designs of their apprentices? Yes, and they place their own name upon the garment. A bit of “stealing”, we would say. What is the point? If it is a garment, enjoy the beauty, fine quality and fit of the garment, because you enjoy the garment, not because you want the prestige and snobbery, not to mention vanity, of the designer label to be noticed by and somehow make you “better than” or socially accepted by “others”. Do you see the difference we are pointing out, dear ones? You blindly run about seeking approval from any but yourselves. We simply want you to recognize your folly in the things you do and desire and correct of it FOR YOU and FOR GOD/ATON our FATHER WITHIN YOU! Free yourselves from the bondage of vanity and you will be one LARGE step closer to reaching GOD’S KINGDOM!
Are we saying it is “wrong” to return color to the grey hair upon your heads, and to otherwise cosmetically “hide” from view what you consider “signs” of aging? Not necessarily “wrong”, just simply fact that you create, but are unable to accept certain changes of body deterioration and MOST ALL OF YOU ONES are horrified of aging or being OLD in your physical form. Why? Because, you’ve been taught again by the adversary that somehow you are less a HUMAN Being and less “attractive” when you are “old” and you will be rejected (and often are) as unable to contribute to humanity. DO YOU KNOW, DEAR CHELAS, THAT IT IS THAT VERY FEAR (planted by satan) IN YOUR MINDS WHICH STARTS “THE CLOCK” OF AGING TICKING WITHIN YOUR VERY BEINGS? YOU ONES, BY BELIEVING YOU WILL LIVE ONLY UP TO 100 YEARS OR SO, BEGIN YOUR OWN AGING PROCESS WITHIN YOU when you are small CHILDREN. And because of the now created, by the adversary through you ones, harshness, pollution and poisons upon your plane you really have no desire within to stay longer, so your body starts its deterioration process. Why are some more vibrant and healthy than others throughout their lifetime? The ones who are vibrant and healthy are IN LOVE WITH LIFE AND HONOR THEIR SPIRIT OF LIFE WITHIN. Their bodies simply age because they, too, perceive limit of life-span from early indoctrination, only they age perhaps with more dignity and grace because of the degree of spiritual purity of JOY and LOVE which they have recognized and cultivated within themselves and have GIVEN graciously to OTHERS.
Do you know that you could create a body which would LIVE for a nearly endless number of years in your counting, IF YOU BUT KNEW IT INSIDE YOUR MIND TO BE TRUE? Our brothers of physical form upon Pleiades live more than some 1000 years in your counting in their physical form. At one time in your ancient civilizations of Atlantis and MU (Lemuria), your ancestors also lived to be over 1000 years of age in your counting. REMEMBER, YOUR IMMORTAL SOUL NEVER AGES, CHELAS. Most “physical” manifested bodies, though, eventually deteriorate, not always because of FEAR, but often because ones simply tire and become bored with having the “same” form, so they create deterioration of the form and move on to “new” realms and forms within CREATION. In the “higher” realms of GOD’s kingdom, your form becomes high concentration of cellular “light” and you can change it at will since it is ONE with your SPIRIT WITHIN.
It has often been said, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” So BEHOLD, through the “eyes” of GOD/ATON the beauty of ALL of the glorious, wondrous varieties of creatures and creations within THE CREATION. Only the Anti-God, or Adversary, through cancerous “prideful” Narcissism, seeks to bring illusion of “ugliness” and define, limit and confine what is “beauteous” so as to impose upon you boundaries of SEPARATION from FATHER/MOTHER ATON and THE CREATION. The adversary cannot do this if YOU DO NOT ALLOW it to let you dishonor yourself by buying its LIE of standard “beauty”.So, in closing on Vanity we will share a form of vanity which is most interesting and somewhat humorous to us. We observe many ones who even choose their pets, in accordance to acceptable “beauty” standards set by the adversary. For example, ones often choose the breed of cat, such as Persian or Himalayan, not because they love the animal, but because they desire the “expensive” socially-defined “beauty” to match their carpet and/or their self-imposed “image” of themselves which they wish to “project” upon their “admiring” friends and associates. Ah well...it shows just to what ends you ones will go in your desire to give the impression you are something OTHER than who you are!
