Your Sacred Space
Some folks think of a sacred space as some of spectacular building they may never see or visit like stonehenge or the vatican. They think the place must be old, ancient even to acquire the essence of sacredness. This is not true.
Have you ever heard the saying “Your body is Your Temple”? That’s it folks. We are our own sacred space. We carry it with is wherever we go. We nourish our bodies both physically and spiritually. We are adaptable and we manifest our intentions. We don’t need an alter in a certain corner of a room with the right candles and alter figures. We don’t need a formal circle or a pretty cloak. We just need ourselves. If you want to sit on the throne and take a poop and commune with the Gods, then go for, you will be in your own sacred space (however, I don’t really suggest that as they might take offence, just saying).
Point is, it all boils down to intentions. We can place ourselves in any environment we want, its the frame of mind that our body and spirit is in that helps us reach that moment of tranquility and oneness with the higher self/diety or however you see it. Tools and props are fine but they are only tools and props. We are the building that our Goddesses/Gods visit.
“Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus.
On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven chamberlains that served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king, to bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty: for she was fair to look on.
But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king’s commandment by his chamberlains: therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him.”
- Esther 1:9-12 KJV
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Just a small output of thoughts here!
I said a while ago that I was going to delete my blog and that I was angry and for people to stay away and so on. Funnily enough I gained a couple of new followers after that so 😅😆👍🏻 .
So for now I’m not going to delete anything even though it would be kinda nice to start anew someday without being blocked so much and to just make a fresh blog. But not for now and I gotta be honest, times are so crazy and I am going through so much absolute wild and painful shit, I’m just happy to have someplace to go and look at cute pictures and read a nice thought and write out my own thoughts sometimes. So I’ll just leave it the way it is for the foreseeable future for now.
Little Lent update - had a couple of crazy experiences to get through and didn’t manage to do the things quite in the way that I had planned because I felt so extremely bad, I couldn’t deny myself even more and deny regular food, but that’s okay I still have time. God is patient and He knows how hard it is. The next weeks are still open and I can do a bit more of the things I had planned. I hadn’t been able to be on the internet so much anyways but for next week, I’ll be offline for a couple of days so I’ll not be here either. Just so you know.
But I finally got my scrapbooking supplies and they are wonderful so hopefully I can actually post some pages that I’ve made soon. :)
Also I’m still in my coaching class, things are pretty wild there too but I’m learning a lot and it is very helpful. I have been hurt badly over the last week by various people but mostly close people, as it usually is. I’ve found out that with the way everybody is acting out of pain so, so much, it really is important to get a feeling for the level of awareness that they’re in. If they’re unaware then really be very vigilant. What I see is layers and layers of false self images and consequently false images of others are flying around like sharp knives in the darkness. It feels unsafe for many, maybe everyone. You have to be mindful that people most likely don’t see you correctly and that can leave a lot of damage. It also feels like your own judgements of the world, your own overlay is totally real and everything is terrible and people are crazy. Rest assured, it is not and that can be hard to discover but this world was made by God, it is not evil even if we go against His divine and loving plan so much. Anything that you don’t see in love is ultimately not real. But your overlay and your emotional responses always are valid. I’ve had very painful conversations with my best friend and with my therapist yesterday and that was hard. I love them both very much and I don’t condemn them for anything, they are both hurting just like I do. They’re both beautiful people. ♡ But it was very hurtful and I have thus found that I need to approach them differently next time we talk. Hold space and not so much want them to help me with certain things. Just be present and listen before I speak and also I need to deal with my emotions differently, I’ve made a lot of progress in this area during the last week. I need to be with myself and listen to myself much more and be lovingly there for myself, just as I said I noticed with others too. I trust that God is providing a path for me and that He is leading me through all of this, lovingly. I’m always giving my best to reconnect with God and I’m doing my best to walk in faith, even if things look very dark. He’s got me, I do grow into that one day at a time and sometimes it is even beautiful, sometimes I witness something beautiful in my life that comes out of that like a little flower that grows through concrete. The small glitter of light that breaks through blocks and blocks of trauma and it is the deep knowing feeling of “God loves me!” 🌻 even if it’s only small moments. But I belong, I am wanted and God loves me every minute and every moment. It was never any different, I have nothing to fear, this love is never away, it is always present, it is always good, it is always sure.
This has become a bit of a longer update, I kinda expected that but it’s okay, I’m a very talkative person when I feel somewhat safe. And I like exchanging thoughts and experiences a lot. :)
I wish all of you a good weekend and a really lovely time of Lent and we’ll read each other again later. God bless you! 🙏🏼🌟🙋🏼♀️
Just a friendly reminder:
As I structure and organize, and restructure and reorganize things; I may very likely, from time to time, post the same information, sometimes worded differently or with more or less of it. However the basis of the information should remain relatively unchanged in most cases. This is not so much a changing of the beliefs of the Church of The MADGOD, but rather an evolution of how the beliefs are best represented. The Church of The MADGOD is a very young religion, barely a year old from its first conception.
The groups who worked in the above study figured out, from the brightness of supernovas in distant galaxies, that the universe must expand more and more in the future due to a peculiar dark energy within it. The concept of dark energy was first postulated by Einstein, who named it the “cosmological constant.” However, since this did not fit in well with his theory of general relativity, he withdrew it and said that it was a scientific blunder. Since then, dark energy has had a rather controversial history.
A team of 27 astronomers, directed by Professor Efstathiou of Cambridge University, proposed strong evidence supporting the existence of dark matter, based on completely novel techniques. Their results, which were consistent with previous supernovas, showed that the universe is indeed full of dark matter. Professor Efstathiou thinks that the explanation of dark energy might include additional dimensions like creation (Big Bang) as well. Fr. Lemaître also proposed the expanding universe theory at an opportune time since Edwin Hubble would soon release his red shift observations that strongly supported an expanding universe and, consequently, the Big Bang theory. Here, the Big Bang is seen as the beginning of a continuous expansion.
The verse seems to tell us miraculously that the expansion of the universe will not cease, despite our limited knowledge of the physical reason for its acceleration.
THE HUBBLE TELESCOPE
Another article, published in Nature, presents us the first and deepest picture of space taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. This caused the astronomers to compete in solving the mysteries of the arts of God. The picture, also known as the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, was broadcasted and published in various programs and journals. It has not only shown us the farthest stars of the universe, but the youngest as well. It was very difficult to detect such weak light with the former technology. This picture reveals the embryonic universe, with an age of only 500 million years old. Estimated age of the universe is 13-14 billion years. Three physicists from American Natural History Museum in New York started a competition to publish an article on the Ultra Deep Field picture after the data was disclosed. They hope to answer many questions about the past and future universe. A group at the Stony Brook University, New York, directed by Kenneth Lanzetta, analysed the embryonic samples in the picture to try to discover when various galaxies had been born and how they had evolved. Two other groups are studying the motions of stars and galaxies, as the picture is a result of data collected over a month.
Having looked at the expansion of universe under the light of recent discoveries, now we turn our attention to two other arguments that could be relevant to expansion. Namely, ether (a substance which it is believed fills up the vast universe and which is the ultimate building block of the space), and the seven-layer-universe.
Despite the Michelson-Morley experiment, which argued against theory of luminiferous ether, the propagation of electric, light, or heat in space shows the existence of a substance through which they flow. The Michelson-Morley experiment is nothing more than just a test of the non-existence of certain qualities of ether. For example, in order to show the existence of photons, of which light is made up, we cannot go beyond showing the features of photons. In other words, depending on how we have defined its qualities, we can observe different aspects in the photon, ether, or anything else. In fact, even today, we don’t really know what a photon really is, although we observe its affects every day. In short, it is not possible to show the non-existence of phenomena that cannot be absolutely defined. Instead, we can only test the existence of the properties that we have defined and attributed to them, and thus we better understand their nature of existence in the context of those pre-defined qualities. Hence, the existence of ether is still controversial and needs more thorough research.
Regarding the seven-layer-universe, on the other hand, how is it possible for ether to manifest itself in seven heavens? It may be that these seven layers are not all posed above our heads, but rather that they may be found one with another. The universe is composed of many systems and networks that are the building blocks of their counterparts on larger scales. Each system is governed by laws, which differ slightly from one another. Inside the atom there exists a proton with its unique organization and in a proton we find quarks. For example, communication between protons and electrons is mediated by the electromagnetic force, while the quarks inside the protons communicate via the strong force. These interleaved circles show us that the universe is indeed composed of numerous layers.
We may use these layers for the metaphysical world as well. The human being is not only composed of matter, but also has a mind, a soul, and intelligence. Although these components are accepted as existing by all, their exact nature has not yet been explained by positive sciences.
It seems that the universe is composed of at least two different worlds: The material world (physical) and the immaterial (metaphysical) world. Are these two worlds completely separate, or do they have some features in common? In fact, the existence of humanity might prove to be this common set. But, it may also be true for the universe itself. Nursi states that the distant galaxies, stars and planets are not empty, but home to many spirits and angels who have their own consciences. Thus, one can say that despite the boundaries which separate these two worlds, such as different numbers of temporal and spatial dimensions, they constitute a whole, the Universe. The interaction between them will never fail as long as the universe exists.
The existence of two separate worlds is not that difficult to believe, but there is more:
It is He Who (prepared the earth for your life before He gave you life, and) created all that is in the world for you (in order to create you – the human species – and make the earth suitable for your life); then He directed (His Knowledge, Will, Power, and Favor) to the heaven, and formed it into seven heavens. He has full knowledge of everything. (Baqara 2:29)
The Qur’an calls the heaven where the sun, moon and stars are the lowest heaven or the heaven of the world (Mulk 67:5). The other six heavens may be the heavens of the worlds of the Hereafter.1 We are not sure whether this seven-layer heavens can only be attributed to the physical universe. It might be able to apply to the universe as a whole, with its all seen and unseen layers as well. Even the worlds of angels and spirits may be expanding in accordance with the laws therein, to show how the power and the wealth of God are comprehended in those worlds as well. Although our Earth is finite, the expansion may not be restricted to our finite world, but it may continue in infinite worlds as well.
It is possible that the space being filled with ether has an important role in paving the orbits of planets or stars, as well as other heavenly bodies. We believe that future studies on dark matter, ether, and string theory will help us to better understand the expansion process of the universe.
