God is a personal experience.
If you believe in God, God exists.
If you don’t believe in God, God does not exist.
If you don’t have personal experience of God and you believe in God, that’s being delusional and hallucinational.
If you have personal experience of God, then God and you become one.
Hindus don’t believe in a God the Creator but a great spirit — in nothingness? — which permeates everything. Hindus are seekers with or without the help of knowers (Guru).
The Holy Bible, the Word of God, is about the spiritual nature of truth.
These truths are self-evident.
They need not be proven.
They stand proven through personal experience.
Allah is a deity like the deities in Hinduism.
It does not ‘matter’ whether God exists or otherwise.
We can cross the bridge when we come to it. If there’s no bridge, it does not matter either, because we won’t know.
After the Big Bang, the universe works by chain reaction, not creation.
The universe is an illusion. All our science is about this illusion, not God.
What we cannot allow are people who compare two religions and rubbish the latter.
There’s no such thing as God said this and said that, didn’t say this and didn’t say that. There’s no such thing as God’s law, divine law and perfect law.
God does not interfere in human lives.
Law . . . According to jurisprudence, God is not a source in law. Law must have source to have jurisdiction, authority and power.
Law exists, and has always existed, based on common sense, universal values and the principles of natural justice.
The court is only about law and the force of law. No law, no crime. Conventions are not law.
The court is not about ethics, moral values, theology, sin, God, justice or truth.
We go to court to get justice, but whether we get justice remains to be seen. There are also others who are dragged to justice — i.e. the court — by the state.
The spiritual nature of truth . . .
Again, the Holy Bible, the Word of God, is about the spiritual nature of truth.
It’s more about the here and now, and less about the hereafter.
These truths are self-evident.
There’s no need to prove them.
They stand proven by personal experience.
Word of God is not about God but the fact that the spiritual nature of truth is self-evident. Hence, the reference to God.
Keep your conscience clear.
It’s the guilty conscience that kills.
A clear conscience means we will come into the “Grace of God”.
Then miracles happen.
Again, God does not interfere in human lives. However, God helps those who help themselves. It’s a personal phenomenon, not collective.
God is neutral. But God helps us eventually if we help ourselves.
If you think God does not exist, God does not exist. If you think God exists, God exists. It’s all about personal experience.
No death, only life . . .
When we die, if our energies are strong, we will still be wandering around.
The energies must become feeble.
When the energies are feeble enough, it will slip into a new body or the soul, like a bubble, will burst and we become part of the great spirit in nothingness.
The choice is ours i.e. whether we want to be free or return to an earthly existence.
There’s no so-called rebirth based on karma.
We don’t take our sins with us when we go. We leave them behind.
The Holy Bible says, “the sins of the fathers shall be visited on the children”.
Karmic forces exhaust themselves sooner or later. That shows that it’s evil to impose an artificial prohibition on upward social mobility under the guise of karma and dharma (duty, order) in the form of the caste system.
Look for the silver lining in the clouds. The good can only come from the bad. Karma is neutral. It’s not good, bad, evil, ugly or beautiful. Those are human perceptions.
Consider everything that happens as a blessing in disguise.
Count your blessings.
Be thankful and grateful and you will have even more reasons to be thankful and grateful tomorrow.
Keep the law of statistical averages in mind.
Have faith (belief) in yourself and the great spirit, see the destination in your mind, and stay committed (never give up) and you will surely reach the destination sooner or later. Stay the course. Don’t expect anything if you give up.
All things come to those who are patient and willing to wait.
Don’t be over-ambitious, greedy and materialistic.
Live a simple life. It’s all about taking things as they come, crossing the bridge when we come to it, exercising a little discipline for efficiency, working in casual bits and pieces. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.
Abundance is a trust and meant for others, not us. We are merely custodians.
Read the Holy Bible, the Word of God, for more about the spiritual nature of truth.
It’s not about religion or seeking but Knowing.
The Church is a gathering of the faithful, in memory of Jesus, to read the Holy Bible.
The Holy Bible, like the Constitution, is about relationships.
It’s about the relationship between God and a people, between God and individuals, and between individuals.
This is a relationship based on love.
There are obligations, responsibilities and duties.
God cannot forgive us our sins unless we first forgive those who have transgressed against us, and seek forgiveness from those we have transgressed.
Then, our sins will be forgiven, our conscience will be clear and we will come into a state called the “Grace of God”.
Then, miracles will happen.
Constitution . . .
The Constitution, which is based on rule of law, is also about relationships.
It’s about the relationship between a state and a people, between the state and individuals, and between individuals.
This is a relationship based on compensation, punishment, and education.
There are obligations, responsibilities and duties.
The Constitution and the Federal Court presides over the rule of law.
The Constitution is not law, but as the ultimate political document (the source), it has force of law.
Adat is not law, but being based on customary practices (the source), it has force of law.
The Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) is not law, but as the ultimate political document (the source) for North Borneo and Sarawak in Borneo — along with the Federal Constitution — it has force of law.
The Malaysian Constitution is an uncodified/unwritten document — i.e. not in one place/one document — and must mean the High Court of Borneo and the Federal Court reading MA63 along with the Federal Constitution and the constitutional documents on Malaysia including Batu Sumpah in Keningau.
The gov’ts of North Borneo and Sarawak can Invoke Article VIII of MA63 for self-determination.
The British did not give self-government and independence to North Borneo and Sarawak before they departed on 16 Sept 1963.
As a result, the government of the Philippines claims sovereignty — in fact the “right” to collect toll and/or exercise property rights along the main waterway — over southern EssZone (Eastern Sabah Security Zone or the original Sabah) and, by extension, northern EssZone.
The claim is not territorial but confined to the main waterways in southern and northern EssZone.
Brunei denies handing over northern EssZone to the Sulu Sultan to collect toll along the main waterway.
Sovereignty . . .
If a gov’t cannot be changed by elections, it has no legitimacy in international law, and the people have lost their sovereignty to a handful of crooks in power.
International law is based on international customary practices. Human rights is the basis of international law.
more on the spiritual nature of truth . . . the here and now.
Jesus, in touching on the spiritual nature of truth, said, “love those who hate you, pray for those who curse you, do good to those who wish you harm, and the kingdom of heaven will be yours”.
This is about keeping the conscience clear so that we come into the grace of God. Miracles happen.
Jesus said, “if you have faith, even though it be as tiny as this grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘uproot thyself and plant thyself in the sea’ and it would obey you”.
This is about commitment (not giving up) driven by faith (being able to see the end result, believing in yourself, believing that God helps those who help themselves).
Jesus said that “no one comes to the Father but through me”. (He meant coming to the spiritual nature of truth through what he preached).

The great spirit in nothingness permeates everything, otherwise, we won’t be here.

Miracles are at the highest level. Intelligence at the lowest level. In between, there’s magic.
