I heartfully thank you all for any support you can provide when you buy any format of my book.I undertake this endeavour not for any egoic purpose but for the intention of being a help to support humanity in any way ,the way that I was supported by the Universal Consciousness during my spiritual journey into healing and Self-Realization.

What could we understand a little on the Teachings of Jesus

Understanding a little teaching on Jesus not in a religious point of view but on the human sense.
 
The story of Jesus, his teachings and the culmination of deep love he displayed towards the end of his life for his friends who were also known as his disciples as well as the whole human creation,touches me in a very poignant way.It is as though, I have come to know him personally.I can imagine myself being in his company while he was celebrating his last days and leaving the fragrance of loving mercy,tenderness and humility to linger on for all of humanity to savor.What does it mean to have been taught to believe and accept Jesus as a saviour?
 
I have come to fully understand that we cannot simply believe or accept anything that has been taught to us ‘blindly’unless we have diligently discerned,paid attention and deciphered the meaning of the words delivered by any enlightened spiritual Master.Unless we learn to effectively apply the teachings to our own lives and have been tested and tried and experienced deepest grief, heartfelt pain and ecstatic joy without running away(in illusory,temporary escapes).Unless we face all events and consequences to allow every phenomena to teach and transform us positively,we remain saturated only in an external believing status and not rooted inwardly in true experiencing mode.
 
We each have this Conscience within us,we can call it Christ,Buddha or God Consciousness,it is all the same,all spiritual teachers are pointing directly inwards into our human being as a reminder to wake up to our True Self.Each and every one of us human share the same grieving sadness,the same joyful wonders and potential raising of Consciousness to benefit humanity.We need but the courage to allow ourselves to break down layers of barricades that have blocked our hearts to Love fearlessly and quell the turmoil of our confused and erratic states of mind caused by the many distorted views/ideas,voices/teachings the world has ‘indoctrinated’ us with.
 
When we sit in Silence with ourselves we listen to only One Voice,the Voice of Divine Conscience that speak only of Truth and Love(always in and for goodness).There is no separation of religion,race,gender,culture,believer or unbeliever of a God,the poor or the rich,saint or terrorist….we are all One,human race and our One True Religion is Love!
We are all on this journey in life to help each other grow as we should be,to be Kind and Humane.So all generations present and future can enjoy the peacefulness of living conditions.Do we want our children/grandchildren/great-grandchildren and so on,to suffer the devastating and foolish ego-centred/maniacal ways of the illusory world?
 
We can start with ourselves in quiet introspective reflection on what we truly want in Life and of Life for ourselves and for those we say we love/care for.Do we choose selfishness or selflessness to exemplify for others to witness?
 
Lessons to learn
Everything about this man Jesus, whose teachings I have come to know thru the gospels read in church,thru the new testaments written in the bible and movies and stories about his life,has opened up a stirring and revolution within myself,he helped move me to apply and practice his teachings to my everyday life and learning.
When he said that one has to die in order to be born again ….I understood it to be to die to ego(selfishness),to old familiar habituated patterns of living,foolish reveries and addictions….and so I learned to looked deeply into myself to find answers for the truth and make changes,the doing away of unnecessary and wasteful suffering……
When he said…”when someone slaps you on the right cheek,give the left as well”……I learned from him the meaning of humility and not to retaliate,resist and defend the self from wrongful accusations and injustice.Instead,I learned also to check within myself for a chance to ‘wake-up’ to goodness.
When he said…”when someone asks you for your cloak, give your shirt as well”….I learned that he meant it to be being benevolent,kind and understanding/respectful of and to others and not expect anything back when you give…
When he said ….”blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God”,I have understood that,it is about being honest,sincere and having goodness of intentions in words, thoughts and actions,not trying to fool others or to abuse and take advantage of anyone/anything.And to see God,for me it means to witness our own innate states of beauty,goodness,kindness and truth,our pure luminous conscience and consciousness(awareness).
When he said….”no one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or under the bed but instead puts in on a stand so that others can see”,I learned that we ourselves must be that light so that others might not live in darkness and be in constant stumbling,falling,hurt and to live in unnecessary suffering.
 
So I allowed him be a teacher of truth, of love and of forgiveness to me;which he taught so prolifically and fearlessly to the people of his time,till today and time eternal.
He walked all over the countryside of Israel during his era joyously, lovingly,teaching and exemplifying mercy/forgiveness,teaching about looking deeply into the self to find love,truth and freedom from suffering.He taught about not looking at the speck of your neighbour’s eye but instead to pull out the log from one’s own eye first.From this significant teaching I had to learn to sit in the company of myself.Painfully,yet slowly, with the knowledge that if I pulled out the ‘log’ in my own eye(Being),I would be ending that which is causing so much pain to myself and outpouring the agony unto others.
 
Jesus himself had to learn how to go inward into himself,to be alone in the desert, to overcome temptations(illusions of the world),to find himself and the truth and to come face to face with his sufferings and divinity.With the knowledge of finding that truth within himself,he felt compelled to allow the compassion within himself to tirelessly spread, teach and share the healing message of love, charity and forgiveness.
 
What does the word ‘Love’mean to us when we say it, when we feel it,when we think about it?Do we really have to know Jesus to know love or do we truly have to sit in quiet reflection to know that we are Love.Jesus and other spiritual Masters are all pointing us into that direction of looking into ourselves to witness it.

Humility

“Humility is a sublime virtue
It can bend before the mighty wind
yet arise with courage.
it can bow before a powerful sovereign,
yet remain his equal.
It can be intimidated by the unjust,
yet not be humiliated.
It can be gentle before injury
yet have the strength to forgive.
humility brings the antidote to pride and arrogance and allows the openness to learn and accept!”

Preview of To Resurrect the True Self

Here is a preview and glimpse of having an understanding into what this heartfelt spiritually surrendered book might be about.Thank you for your time and support.Feel free to share if you like.

Watching Ourselves

We can be creators of loving-kindness,benevolence,respect,truth,selflessness and understanding.
We can choose to destroy selfishness,unkindness,resentments,anger,disrecpect and greed.
We can restore harmony into our lives and the lives of others

All we need is the tool of practicing Self-Awareness!
It is so easy,wherever we are, whomever we are with,however we are, in whatever we are doing,right here and now…..we can practice watching ourselves,being mindful and aware.

One small random act of kindness can help encourage and disseminate the uplifting of Human Consciousness which brings spiritual healing and courage.Fear on the other hand limits and traps us in a realm of meaninglessness.

Finding Myself

When I stood outside the door of the church of Saint Paul’s Richmond,November 1998 after coming back from Saudi Arabia, I knew within the depths of my soul I was ready and willing to put aside all my worldly egoistic selfish habituated lifestyle of all sorts in order to open my mind and heart to learn the ways of healing,new life and new birth, to anything that might help me end suffering.Although,I did not know what or how am I to proceed along this new path…..the main thing was taking the first step to be humbled and with the sincerity and right intention of surrendering to the unknown with courage! Then began the listening to the ‘inner call’ in sitting quietly in the empty church.At first I did not know what I was truly doing but it seemed so peaceful and sacred…..On a daily basis without fail,I was there in the empty church sitting with my heart full of pain and suffering that I was becoming more fully aware of. What was I searching for,what was I asking for,what did I find by sitting quietly?………………………………I found Myself and all the treasures Within.I try to be of help and wish to share those gems through my book. https://www.celestehoedenauthor.com

My new book

It is with a deep feeling of blessings that I am pleased to announce the official release of my book which is written with a heartfelt and sole intention to help raise consciousness and awareness in each and every human heart to help make this world a better place to live in with the promoting of compassion and kindness and the ending of unnecessary suffering! It is available for purchase on Amazon and Chapters/Indigo websites worldwide.

It is truly a momentous time for me to witness the release of this book into the world and surrender it into the hands of all who want to walk into the path of Truth and take courage to face and resurrect all that beauteous gems within the True Self which lay dormant waiting to be fully animated into everlasting Human Life.This book does not in any way speak of a religious context telling anyone to believe in anything good or not good.It does not speak of tones in any judgmental,criticising or condenming way.Matter of fact in this book, I embrace everything and everyone as I reveal my own faults,follies and foolishness and how waking up to realize my sufferings propelled me to move inward into myself to see the ‘demons’ as well as treasures buried so deep that I had to resurrect all good and bad within my being,sweeping clean all those that are poisonous and toxic for myself and others and revelling and sharing in all that are beauteous and good.

In this book, I open up myself explicitly to share with the world the wonders,joys, triumphs,and dangers of traversing on this wondrous journey we know as the spiritual journey….I speak directly, truthfully and very simply from my heart to your heart without any agenda other than being a lamp to help you find that light-switch in the dark.It is then up to each one to turn on the light switch of your own heart and leave it on for others to find their way!
