  1. a grain of wheat remains no more than a single grain unless it is dropped into the ground and dies. If it does die, then it produces many grains.

  2. 12:3013:30 starts my thoughts on this….

    This concept of needing and not needing can be seen in the concept of what you feel and think NOW, brings to you the next NOW… so if you feel like you already have it, then its as if you have it, and then you have it. The thing to note is the goal is the feeling and the thoughts…. so if your feeling lack… this is what you bring to yourself. This concept is that we are creators of what comes next, and not to be fooled into sticking with what was or what you have. But create what you want next by feeling like you already have it. This is law of the attraction as well. In fact Jesus even spoke of this concept, if you believe and have faith like a mustard seed that grows into a large tree. Then your requests will be done for you, if you do not doubt in your heart.

    Removing the doubt circuit/program means that all the energy can go through the BELIEF circuit/program. Focus is energy at frequency. Frequency tuning into another frequency, the two become one, and there is a resonance amplification of circuit flow. Such is radio. its the same principle with spirit, mind, feelings and soul. As you tune in to or reach out to, it tunes into, or reaches back towards you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. This same concept is taught in words, but hidden in rhetoric, and trampled under foot by dogma and doctrines that give a different meaning and distract from opening up the door to this understanding. For even Jesus said, i will open my mouth in parables and utter RIDDLES/Mysteries/Secrets hidden from the foundation of the world. See the alternative meanings, and often there is more than two, and each is true in their own context and perspective, and you fill find these mysteries revealed. As with the FOUNDATION of the World is WITHIN ALL THINGS, where the omnipresent source energy building blocks of all things exists. That which fits all the criteria of what has been called God. Omnipresent, (everywhere at the same time, always) Omnipotent (all powerful/energy), source energy, creative force, all knowing, the great spirit, the life force, the holding together of the universe and all its laws. Cause and Effect with this energy, by thought, frequency, feeling, creates your perception of reality. What is impossible for you, may be possible for others who believe differently, and visa versa. But do you know this yet. it is like programming a computer with deeper understanding.

    It is like being NEO in the matrix and going form being a character, to be a a character than can program themselves and their reality with master computer programming and hacking abilities. It is to take on a God mode like aspect. Where you understand how it works and how to change it. How to recognise the viruses and trojan horses that control and distort perceptions of reality and drives and desires, and become aware that , all things are permissible but not all things a profitable, and to not be mastered by anything. This is within the law of divine will and cause and effect by the law of attraction. All have free will and many can agree to share their free will with others. But none can have their free will override another's free will. This is sovereign will that we all have. Much of this world that corrupts seeks to make contracts and convince you that you must go along instead of be the true power that you are. So this manipulation is to get their true power untied with others to shape their agenda of control, as has happened for thousands of years by the ruling class. Take back your power and understanding and become a creator of paradise instead of controlled by fear to create this dog eat dog reality.
