I was born in war-torn country, Vietnam. I've seen my people and my countryside destroyed by this war. I've seen people killed in unimaginable ways by weapons of war. I've seen people make unbelievable decisions in times of war.

There is a song in my country ... 1000 years dominated by the Chinese, 100 years dominated by the French, 20 years civil war ... war, war, war. But now, they seem to have peace over there. Americans out, there's peace. Will that happen in Iraq, I wonder.

Ironically, I was studying the Vietnam War from the perspective of Americans when the Twin Towers and Pentagon was struck. The question often posed was 'Why don't we South Vietnamese fight?' I wanted to scream back 'Why should we fight?'. This is a difference in ideas about how to govern a country. You get together and discuss things, you don't kill each other over this.

It was a war I don't understand. I often asked Americans - Why would you send your sons and daughters into a foreign country to fight? I don't think they understand then and I don't think they understand now.

Why do men enlisted? Probably because of all the enticements and benefits that the military advertised. It was a step up for some of them. They probably think about all the idealistic reasons, protecting the country, saving people, etc. I don't think they think about someday they have to go to war and kill someone.

Do I have problems with Americans in my country? If they walk around with no guns, then no ... but if they walk around with guns, I do have a problem. It's the equivalent of saying ... they bring violence into my country. Sure, my country might have some existing violence, but I don't need them to add more violence to it. I wonder if Iraqis are feeling similar sentiments.

Americans, on the other hand, probably expect me to be thankful that they sacrifice their sons and daughters. I am not thankful. I wanted to tell them - stop sending your children into this war-torn country. I just feel sorry. War is stupid, I am sorry to say. Sorry that leaders don't have skills it take to find peaceful solutions and resort to war as the solution.

Yet, Americans should be thankful. Thankful that it has a country that it can stay on and test its ideas about governance. Seeing the status of this country, there are still a lot of room for improvement.

And I, of course, thankful for America to let me immigrate to this country and have another life.

It is ironic that I was in Vietnam when the Vietnam occurred, and now living in the United States when the Iraq war happen. I don't think I understand then, and I don't understand it now, except to say that America choose war because it is afraid of something that might happen in the future, what I don't know.

We have been hearing many negative things about America, so let me end with a positive note. Many people want to immigrate to America, because it is still a shining light. It is in America that they can express themselves more fully. If there is anything that is called 'Hell', that would be to see you have talents, and yet you are not allowed the opportunity to express it. In America, people have this opportunity.

Because of this, America is faced with this 'immigration' problem. If America can help other countries with this issue in a peaceful manner, people in other countries will likely stay in their country and express themselves more fully, and thus resolve the 'immigration' problem.

This also would help further the vision of the New World. Give people the opportunity to express themselves more fully, and thus allow them to experience themselves more fully. This is what we came to this world for. To actualize ourselves.

I don't think there should be patents at all. While patent benefits the 'original' person/company to bring the idea to the public, it also hampers creativity for the many others the way that patents are constructed, and we are creative beings.

'Patents' is saying that the idea/product belong to that person/company, and no other can use it. Infringement can result in expensive lawsuits.

In the New World, if we can get there, there would be no patents, because that would conflict the natural law. What belong to you also belong to others, and what belong to others also belong to you. So there is no place for patents.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is the day we supposed to remember the soldiers who have fought in order to us to have freedom.

Yet, today I remember the mice and the various other laboratory animals. They too have given up their lives in order to us to advance our medical understanding. We have never give thanks to them.

The way that FDA is constructed, the way for any drugs or any medical device to come to market should first go through animals trials and subsequent human trials.

They die for our benefits, and we never give thanks to them. Well, on behalf of the human race, I thank you animals for your sacrifice.

Spreading the Word of God

I would never imagine there would be a day I would be doing something like this.

When I was young, when I was approached by those who 'preached' the Word of God, I felt uneasy. I didn't really want to listen. I suppose it is like they are telling me how to live my life, and I didn't like that.

I had many issues with God. To me, He was a mean God. He is a God, and He can do anything He likes, but I had no desire following Him, much less spreading His Words. What kind of a God would test Abraham to kill his son? On the other hand, Christ comes from Him, and He was wonderful and speaks well of God.

Years went by, and I kind of forget about the issues of God, convinced that I can never find the answer to my questions .... unless He appear before me and answer my question, which is highly unlikely. I dived into the world of science.

It wasn't until I enter the world of Oriental Medicine that I see God again. Well, they don't say it outright, but you can see hints of it. Amazing how many of the concepts in Oriental Medicine is reiterated as God explains why the world the way it is.

It was in the world of Oriental Medicine that I experience Buddha. It was Buddha who inspire me to remind people to be compassionate through teaching. Then God comes along, declaring Himself to be a loving God. Well, my work is done. Who is a better teacher of compassion than God Himself. Thus, I bring you His Words.

Moses and the Ten Commandments

God explains ...

I will begn with a statement that will startle you - and perhaps offend the sensitivities of many people. There are no such things as the Ten Commandments.

No, there are not. Who would I command? Myself? And why would such commandments be required? Whatever I want, is. How is it therefore necessary to command anyone?

And if I did issue commandments, would they not be automatically kept? How could I wish something to be so badly that I would command it - and then sit by and watch it not be so?

What kind of a king would do that? What kind of a ruler?

And yet I tell you this: I am neither a king nor a ruler. I am simply - and awesomely - the Creator. Yet the Creator does not rule, but merely creates, creates, and keep on creating.

I have created you - blessed you - in the image and likeness of Me. And I have made certain promises and commitments to you. I have told you, in plain language, how it will be with you when you become one with Me.

You are, as Moses was, an earnest seeker. Moses too, as do you now, stood before Me, begging for answers. "Oh, God of My Fathers," he called. "God of my God, deign to show me. Give me a sign that I may tell my people! How can we know that we are chosen?"

And I came to Moses, even as I have come to you now, with a divine covenant - an everlasting promise - a sure and certain commitment. "How can I be sure?" Moses asked plaintively. "Because I have told you so, " I said. "You have the Word of God."

And the Word of God was not a commandment, but a covenant. These, then, are the ten commitments.

You shall know that you have taken the path to God, and you shall know that you have found God, for there will be these signs, these indications, these changes in you:

1. You shall love God with all you heart, all your mind, all your soul. And there shall be no other God set before Me. No longer will you worship human love, or success, money, or power, nor any symbol thereof. You will set aside these things as a child sets aside toys. Not because they are unworthy, but because you have outgrown them.

2 You shall not use the name of God in vain. Nor will you call upon Me for frivolous things. You will understand the power of words, and of thoughts, and you would not think of invoking the name of God in an unGodly manner. You shall not use My name in vain because you cannot. For My name - the Great "I Am" - is never used in vain (that is, without result), not can it ever be. And when you have found God, you shall know this.

3. You shall remember to keep a day for Me, and you shall call it holy. This, so that you do not long stay in your illusion, but cause yourself to remember who and what you are. And then shall you call every day the Sabbath, and every moment holy.

4. You shall honor your mother and your father - and you will know you are the Son of God when you honor your Father/Mother God in all you say or do or think. And even as you so honor the Mother/Father God, and your father and mother on Earth (for they have given you life), so, too, will you honor everyone.

5. You know you have found God when you observe that you will not murder (that is, willfully kill, without cause). For while you will understand that you cannot end another's life in any event (all life is eternal), you will not choose to terminate any particular incarnation, nor change any life energy from one form to another, without the most sacred justification. Your new reverence for life will cause you to honor all life forms, including plants, trees, and animals, and to impact them only when it is for the highest good.

6. You will not defile the purity of love with dishonesty or deceit for this is adulterous.

7. You will not take a thing that is not your own, nor cheat, nor connive, nor harm another to have anything, for this would be to steal.

8. Say a thing that is not true, and thus bear false witness.

9. Covet your neighbor's spouse, for why would you want your neighbor's spouse when you know all others are your spouse?

10. Covet your neighbor's goods, for why would you want your neighbor's goods when you know that all goods can be yours, and all your goods belong to the world?

You will know that you have found the path to God when you see these signs. For I promise you that no one who truly seeks God shall any longer do these things. It would be impossible to continue such behaviors.

These are your freedoms, not your restrictions. These are my commitments, not my commandments. For God does not order about what God has created - God merely tells God's children: this is how you will know that you are coming home.

The Wall

One of the ideas that come forth for stopping the flow of 'illegal' aliens into the country is to build a wall. Amazing how a powerful country like the United States can be so scared at the same time. I suppose it is afraid of losing its identity, seeing the many immigrants that are flowing into this country. Making English the 'official' language is an example of it.

Oh well, just like the 'war' ideas, I'll see how this 'wall' idea will carry itself out. These ideas have the foundation in fear, and probably it doesn't serve America very well. It's better to make friends than to make enemies.

Life is a creation, not a discovery

God explains ...

You do not live each day to discover what it holds for you, but to create it. You are creating your reality every minute, probably without knowing it.

Here's why that is so, and how that works.

1. I have created you in the image and likeness of God.

2. God is the creator.

3. You are three beings in one. You can call these three aspects of being anything you want: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; mind, body, and spirit; superconscious, conscious, and subconscious.

4. Creation is a process that proceeds from these three parts of your body. Put another way, you create at three levels. The tools of creation are: thought, word, and deed.

5. All creation begins with thought ("Proceeds from the Father"). All creation then moves to word ("Ask and you shall receive, speak and it shall be done unto you"). All creation is fulfilled in deed ("And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us").

6. That which you think of, but thereafter never speak of, creates at one level. That which you think and speak of creates at another level. That which you think, speak, and do becomes made manifest in your reality.

7. To think, speak, and do something which you do not truly believe is impossible. Therefore, the process of creation must include belief, or knowing. This is absolute faith. This is beyond hoping. This is knowing of a certainty. ("By your faith shall ye be healed"). Therefore, the doing part of creation always include knowing. This is a gut-level clarity, a total certainty, a complete acceptance as reality of something.

8. This place of knowing is a place of intense and incredible gratitude. It is a thankfulness in advance. And that, perhaps, is the biggest key to creation: to be grateful before, and for, the creation. Such taking for granted is not only condoned, but encouraged. It is a sure sign of mastery. All Masters know in advance that the deed has been done.

9. Celebrate and enjoy all that you create, have created. To reject any part of it is to reject a part of yourself. Whatever it is that is now presenting itself as part of your creation, own it, claim it, bless it, be thankful for it. Seek not to condemn it, for to condemn it is to condemn youself.

10. If there is some aspect of creation you find you do not enjoy, bless it and simply change it. Choose again. Call forth a new reality. Think a new thought. Say a new word. Do a new thing. Do this magnificently and the rest of the world will follow you. Ask it to. Call for it. Say "I am the Life and the Way, follow me."

This is how to manifest God's will "on Earth as it is in heaven".

You get your life to 'take off' by first becoming very clear in your thinking about it. Think about what you want to be, do, and have. Think about it often until you are very clear about this. Then when you are very clear, think about nothing else. Imagine no other possibilities.

Throw all negative thoughts out of your mental constructions. Lose all pressimism. Release all doubts. Reject all fears. Discipline your mind to hold fast to the original creative thought.

When your thought are clear and steadfast, begin to speak them as truths. Say them out loud. Use the great command that calls forth creative power: I am. Make I-am statements to others. "I am" is the strongest creative statement in the universe. Whatever you think, whatever you say, after the words " am" sets into motion those experiences, called them forth, brings them to you.

There is no other way the universe knows how to work. There is no other route it knows to take. The universe responds to "I am" as would a genie in a bottle.

Harnessing your thoughts, exercising control over them, is not as difficult as it might seem. It is all a matter of discipline. It is a question of intent.

The first step is learning to monitor your thoughts; to think about what you are thinking about.

When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts - thoughts that negate your highest idea about a thing - think again! I want you to do this, literally. If you think you are in a doldrum, in a pickle, and no good can come of this, think again. If you think the world is a bad place, filled with negative events, think again. If you think your life is falling apart, and it looks as if you'll never get it back together again, think again. You can train yourself to do this.

Nostalgic for a good president

I remember when Clinton was president, I wrote to him and told him how proud I am to have him as my president. I don't know if it gets to him, but the letter was responded.

Contrast that with Bush, the letter seems to go into a black hole. Perhaps my letter was irrelevant and was dismissed ... like the letter from the Iranian president. I too questioned him on his methods of handling world problems.

I don't write letters to presidents often. But when they do an outstanding job, like Clinton, I do let them know that. And when they do a terrible job, I let them know that too. I do feel sorry for Bush at times. Many people pick on Bush and makes fun of him. Maybe that's a way to deal with frustration, make a joke out of it. It's really unbelievable to have a president like Bush. We have many talented people in this country, and we picked Bush. Unbelievable. But that's democracy.

Iranian President Letter to President Bush

I have read the translation of this letter on

I am disappointed by the response of this administration - the dismissal of the letter because it doesn't address the problem at hand - the buildup of the nuclear power in Iran.

Here we have a president of a foreign country trying to make communication, and yet this administration just dismiss it.

Here we have a president of a foreign country trying to explain his views, and perhaps his views are shared with many in his country. What we shoud do is listen. We don't have to agree but we should listen. Thank him for sharing his views. And from there, we share with him our concerns.

He has declared that his buildup of nuclear power is for peaceful purposes. He expressed his country's interest in research & development in the nuclear power area. It seems the administration choose not to trust him.

Anyway, I wish this administration can be more diplomatic.

Why the world the way it is

God explains why the world the way it is ...

'Of all the questions man has asked of God, this is the one asked most often. From the beginning of time man has asked it. From the first moment to this, you have wanted to know, why must it be like this?

The classic posing of the question is usually something like: If God is all-perfect and all-loving, why would God create pestilence and famine, war and disease, earthquakes and tornados and hurricanes and all manner of natural disaster, deep personal disappointment, and worldwide calamity?

The answer to this question lies in the deeper mystery of the universe and highest meaning of life.

I do not show My goodness by creating only what you call perfection all around you. I do not demonstrate My love by not allowing you to demonstrate yours.

As I have already explained, you cannot demonstrate love until you demonstrate not loving. A thing cannot exist without its opposite, except in the world of absolute. Yet the realm of the absolute was not sufficient for either you or Me. I existed there, in the always, and it is from where you, too, have come.

In the absolute, there is no experience, only knowing. Knowing is a divine state, yet the grandest joy is in being. Being is achieved only after experience. The evolution is this: knowing, experiencing, being. This is the Holy Trinity - the Triune that is God.

God the Father is knowing - the parent of all understandings, the begetter of all experience, for you cannot experience that which you do not know.

God the Son is experiencing - the embodiment, the acting out, of all that the Father knows of Itself, for you cannot be that which you have not experienced.

God the Holy Spirit is being - the disembodiment of all that the Son has experienced of Itself; the simple, exquisite is-ness possible only through the memory of the knowing and experiencing.

This simple being is bliss. It is God-state, after knowing and experiencing Itself. It is that for which God yearned in the beginning.

Of course, you are well past the point where you must have it explained to you that the father-son descriptions of God have nothing to do with gender. I use here the picturesqued speech of your most recent scriptures. Much earlier holy writings placed this metaphor in a mother-daughter context. Neither is correct. Your mind can best hold the relationship as: parent-offspring. Or: that-which-gives-rise-to, and that-which-is-risen. Adding the third part of the Trinity produces this relationship:
That which gives rise to / That which is risen / That which is

This Triune Reality is God's signature. It is the divine pattern. The three-in-one is everywhere found in the realms of the sublime. You cannot escape it in matters dealing with time and space, God and consciousness, or any of the subtle relationships. On the other hand, you will not find the Triune Truth in any of life's gross relationships.

The Triune Truth is recognized is life's subtle relationships by everyone dealing with such relationships. Some of your religionists have described the Triune Truth as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Some of your psychiatrists use the terms superconscious, conscious, and subconscious. Some of your spiritualists say mind, body, and spirit. Some of your scientists say energy, matter, ether. Some of your philosophers say a thing is not true for you until it is true in thought, word, and deed. When discussing time, you speak of three times only: past, present, future. Similarly, there are three moments in your perception - before, now, after. In terms of spacial relationships, whether considering the points of the universe, or various points in your own room, you recognize here, there, and the space in between.

In matters of gross relationships, you recognize no 'in-between'. That is because gross relationships are always dyads, whereas relationships of the higher realms are invariably triads. Hence, there is left-right, up-down, big-small, fast-slow, hot-cold, and the greatest dyad ever created: male-female. There are no between in these dyads. A thing is either one thing or the other, or some greater or lesser version in relationship to one of these polarities.

Within the realm of gross relationships, nothing conceptualized can exist without a conceptualization of its opposite. Most of your day-to-day experience is foundationed in this reality.

Within the realm of the sublime relationships nothing exists has an opposite. All is One, and everything progresses from one to the other end in a never-ending circle.

Time is such as sublime realm, in which what you call past, present, and future exists inter-relationally. That is, they are not opposites, but rather parts of the same whole; progressions of the same idea; cycles of the same energy; aspects of the same immutable Truth. If you conclude from this that past, present, and future exist at one and the same 'time', you are right.

The world is the way it is because it could not be any other way and still exist in the gross realm of physicality. Earthquakes and hurricanes, floods, and tornados, and events you call natural disasters are but movements of the elements from one polarity to the other. The whole birth-death cycle is part of the movement. These are the rhythm of life, and everything in gross reality is subject to them, because life itself is a rhythm. It is a wave, a vibration, and pulsation at the very heart of the All That Is.

Illness and disease are opposites of health and wellness, and are made manifest in your reality at your behest. You cannot be ill without at some level causing yourself to be, and you can be well again in a moment by simply deciding to be. Deep personal disappointments are responses which are chosen, and worldwide calamities are the result of worldwide consciousness.

Your question infers that I choose these events, that it is My will and desire they should occur. Yet I do not will these things into being, I merely observe you are doing to. And I do nothing to stop them, because to do so would be to thwart your will. That, in turn, would deprive you of the God experience, which is the experience you and I have chosen together.

Do not condemn, therefore, all that you would call bad in the world. Rather, ask yourself, what about this have your judged bad, and what, if anything, you wish to do to change it.

Inquire within, rather than without, asking: 'What part of my Self do I wish to experience now in the face of this calamity? What aspect of being do I choose to call forth?' For all of life exists as a tool of your own creation, and all of its events merely present themselves as opportunities for you to decide, to be, Who You Are.

This is true for every soul, and so you see there are no victims in the universe, only creators. The Masters who have walked this planet all knew this. That is why, no matter which Master you might name, none imagined themselves to be victimized - though many were truly crucified.

Each soul is a Master - though some do not remember their origins or their heritages. Yet each creates the situation and the circumstance for its own highest purpose and its own quickest remembering - in each moment called now.

Judge not, then the karmic path walked by another. Envy not success, nor pity failure, for you know not what is success or failure to the soul's reckoning. Call not a thing a calamity, nor joyous event, until you decide, or witness, how it is used. For is a death a calamity if it saves the lives of thousands? And is life a joyous event if it has caused nothing but grief? Yet even this, you should not judge, but keep always your own counsel, and allow others theirs.

This does not mean ignore a call for help, nor the urging of your own soul to work toward the change of some circumstance or condition. It does mean avoiding labels and judgment while you do whatever you do. For each circumstance is a gift, and in each experience is hidden a treasure.'
