They went outside for a party and came in mid night. The receptionist in the hotel told' sorry sirs, our lift is not working, I can arrange 3 beds in the mesernine floor' 2 The 3 friends who has enjoyed good wine, boasted, o..h don't worry, we can climb up to our rooms The 3 friends agreed, first 15 floors, one will sing songs, next 15 floors another will tell happy stories, the other will tell sad stories, during the last 15 floors. As agreed all 3 friends climb up to 30 floors. The other 2 tell the last to tell the sad stories. 3 After a hesitation the last man is telling “oh we forget the room keys” Some people believe the Lord Sakraya has created the world With all living beings. When he was creating the all living beings, he set the life span as 40 years. But the human protested, saying that it is too short, for him to achieve many things. The bull protested, that 40 years life span for him is too much, to be a servant and do all slavery work for such a long time, so the God reduce the Bull's life span to 20 years, and add for human another 20 years. Now the life span of human has become 60 years. Next came the dog, he too complain that his life span is too long, only to bark and always serving the human, and wanted the God to reduce the life span. The God listen and reduce the life span of dog to 20 years and add 20 years to human. Now the life span of human has become 80 years. The next came the Bat. He too complain the same story of too long life span, telling that he has nothing to do much, just sleeping and wanted to reduce the life span. The God listen and reduce the Bat's life span to 20 years, and increase the life span of human to 100 years. CHANGING NATURE OF HUMANS.... • CELLS OF OUR BODY IS EVERYDAY CHANGING • After 7 years you are a different person after completely changes your cells • WAY OF LIVING OF PEOPLE CHANGES. • Your grandfathers dog is same to your dog at home today. But you are different to your grand father. Today you use cell phones, pen drives, internet, emails, unlike your grand father • WHY JESUS TOLD PUT NEW WINE TO NEW CONTAINERS? • CHRISTIANITY accepts new technologies, subject to the up liftment of HUMAN MORALITY Revolution Type • Agricultural Revolution • Industrial revolution Past • Communication revolution Present • Transportation Revolution • Energy Revolution Future Way of Living of People Changes.., Yesterday we travel in Bullock Cart. Today Bullock Cart are not use for traveling. Today we use motor vehicle. Tomorrow we might use Helicopter. Past Present Agricultural Revolution Communication Revolution (All people using Industrial revolution telephones, Internet Email, storage devices like pen drive) Future What we can observe in ‘FUTURE’? You Like to go to Astrologer ! NO! Transport Revolution Energy Revolution Living Paradigm is Changing for more efficient life • Efficiency = The resources needed to do a job according to your mind set Efficiency= Actual resources you used according to Present Day Technology • • • • If you’re mind is set for the old revolution definitely your efficiency will not match for the present era( you will be inefficient without your knowledge),then your productivity and effectiveness will be lower. Ex: If you’re mind is set before the industrial revolution you might think you need 5 days to go from Negombo to Colombo by a bullock cart. But if you use a car ,you can go with in 1 hour. Hence the efficiency in this case will be: Efficiency = 5*24/1=168 Are you afraid of Internet and Email? Is it against your thinking pattern? What is your Mindset? IS HUMAN AN ANIMAL? Basic Difference between Human & Animal Bull cannot tie itself to a cart. Even if it is connected to the cart it can not ride itself without a Human Animals’ task will be converted for a Purpose by Human Animal can do a Task, but without a purpose BUT Human will do a task for a purpose Can Animal become a Human in this birth? No But Human can become Animal in this birth HOW? If the Purpose is Bad The human will behave worst than animal. Which organ in our body will identify whether the purpose is good or bad? Conscious Mind + Freewill is Good/noble Development of your conscious to lead a happy life, you need to follow a religion. the human will become More human or God. Human is Wisest of all Living Beings… HOW? 3 Categories of living Beings But human needs one more? Basic needs for them Fire Trees Animals Human Beings Earth Water Air Is Sex,shelter,clothes are basic needs? What is the characteristic of Fire? No,without that we’ll not die A Good Meal or Kill a person Important organs Animals Heart,Brain SunLight Food What is the function of the MIND? Humans It is a Thought Factory You will form your truth Heart,Brain + Mind Heart=Power Supply Does the computer have Heart,Brain,Mind? Brain=Processor Mind=Software Is human equal to a computer? You will do from your free will what is good for You No , humans in additon have a free will Conscious is the only organ in your body which cannot be destroyed by anybody (Your ability to take a choice) No Freewill Yes Some religions says conscious is travelling from one birth to another with ending nivana or heaven Conscious is the combination of mind & free will We should know how to develop our own conscious SEX, IS IT A BASIC NEED? NO, WHY? • SEXUALITY NEEDS FOR REPRODUCTION(SCIENCE HAS NOT FOUND A METHOD TO PRODUCE ARTFICALLY BABYS, THEY NEED EXISTING HUMAN SUPPORT!) • FOR REPRODUCTION, SEXTUALLITY IN A PERSON WILL BE AVAILABLE ONLY TEMPORARY! MAY BE 20 -25 years/ not throuhout the life of a person) • When you get married you have 4 legs. If the legs are not synchronised, you are in hell! • I have 4 children, i have 12 legs, I cannot have my full freedom! Is computers are superior to animals or equal to humans? HUMAN HEART BRAIN MIND TRUTH FREE WILL COMPUTER POWER SUPPLY CPU SOFTWARE PROGRAMMING ANIMAL HEART BRAIN INSTINC Human Beings Many Religions says to become a Human Beings, many births will take place. Also Human being is much superior to other living being in the world such as animal an trees. A human being can easily go towards animal mentally if he is not properly trained. But animal to become a Human, either it impossible or difficult through out their ‘Sasara’. Very Easily.., May be in same birth Very Difficult., ‘Kalpa’ years will take place By Developing Animal Qualities By Developing Human Qualities We should strive to keep the human qualities HOW DO WE LIVE? • WE MEAURE THE TIME/ HOW DID WE MEASURE THE TIME?/ DAY, MONTH CAN UNDERSTAND. • WHAT IS THE BASIS OF MEASURING A WEEK? • WHEN WE DIE WE SAY WE ARE TIME INDEPENDENT!. CAN YOU IMAGINE? • WITH THE ORIGINAL SIN, GOD INTRODUCE THE SPACE(DISTANCE) & TIME AS HIDDEN ELEMENTS(TECHNOLOGY),INSTEAD OF HOPE & HAPPINES, FEAR & SORROW.(HUMAN) • TECHNOLOGY ALWAYS CHANGING, WITH USING NANO POWER, WITH NANO SECONDS WITH AMSTRON(UNIT OF LENGTH10* -10 METERS) • CATHOLISM USES A PROCESS TO HANDLE THE TECHNOGY ISSUES WHEN COPARED TO OTHER RELIGIONS! IN ADDITION TO THE CLEAR PROCESS OF APPLICATION TO YOUR LIFE WHERE WE ARE LIVING & CHARACTERISTICS OF HUMAN BEINGS! • EARTH & HOW PEOPLE WORK • We follow the greogorian calender(Every 4 years, a leap year, every 100 years there is no leap year except every 400 years) • CONCEPT OF YOUR EXISTANCE • You cannot decide from which parents you can come to this world, neither your parent cannot change the sex ).

MIX & MATCH JESUS Many people to day feel comfortable in customerising their own religious beliefs. Lot of people are trying to free themselves from the straight jackets of religious dogma and create their own jesus by picking and choosing what they want from christianity and other faiths!. What’s wrong with creating our own JESUS to suit our own needs? CHRISTIANITY IS FOCUSED ON THE PERSON OF CHRIST. WE ARE CALLED INTO A RELATION SHIP. , NOT SIMPLY TO BELIEVE A SET OF DOCTRINES. ENJOY THE OUT COME OF THESE DOCTRINES IN THE PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS. IF YOU BELIEVE GOD EXIST, THEN YOU, THEN YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO REJECT, CERTAIN ASPECTS OF GODS NON EXIXTENCE GIVEN IN CERTAIN RELIGIONS. YOU CANNOT SAY ‘ I BELIVE IN JESUS RESURRECTIONS, BUT I ALSO BELIEVE IN REINCARNATION’ WE RESPECT ALL RELIGIONS BUT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THE CLEAR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE RELIGIONS!.
