How do we find the kingdom of Heaven from within, as Jesus spake? me have deep and tumultuous psych problems which are affecting my body adversely and more specifically the gut (IBS), and medication is just making me suffer too. I am thinking if we accessed our kingdoms from within, we could conquer our personal demons which afflict us all, and yes I am willing to believe this thing but I do not know how to access it and Jesus is kinda vague, so, I humbly request your help Ernst.

I cannot sleep or live very well either so long as I have these cursed constipation spells, which again seems to be generated by my magician of a mind

I can't really tell what you mean by that inner kingdom.

Are you talking about the unconcious in Jungian terms?
Or the soul in christian terms?
Or...?

Is the "kingdom of heaven" common knowledge among christians?

So basically when I say 'kingdom of Heaven' this is the highest state of mind which you or anyone can achieve, according to a scholar named Bill Donahue. However, you can only achieve it thru meditation and from the right side of your brain. This apparently is what Revelations was talking about, it's just a manual for accessing higher frequencies of the mind, including the 'kingdom'.

Now, this brings me to my own point, I feel like this might be the fix I am looking for if my ailments are of a psychological nature. No amount of medication, or help from outside actors, even doctors, could fix this.

Whatever is holding me back, seems to be emanating from the corruption of my mind

That's...not really true. Revelations is probably among the most fascinating parts of the Bible though as it's probably the most multifaceted. That tract exists both fully outside of time and space and within it. If you think it's helpful to deal with it in more Jungian terms there is indeed probably a hidden component of that although afaik the Kabbalic Tree of Life isn't necessarily interwoven however it does contain a great degree of mysticism along with certain descriptors of past events and things to come repeatedly, it's just the one final one people fixate on and also conveniently forget things like the time spaces it's freaking a thousand years for one specific time for example.

Of course I come here and likewise find myself asking if there is any way to flatline one's sex drive entirely without resorting to SSRI abuse. Porn is probably the one thing that genuinely displeases me about myself and it is altogether something disgusting about our society that should be abolished.

>uh, well, AKSHULLY that's bullshit
<but it's a multifaceted text soo maybee but I wouldn't count on it

Ahem, for the record, I got this info from a theologian, but, if it is truly G-d's Word then it should apply to everything within the universe, wouldn't it? To minimize yourself to a specific plane or dimension is ungodlike, to constrain yourself in it is something the creature would do rather than the creator. And if this is Logos, shouldn't it akshully be everywhere?

Think about it.

The gospel isn't a self-help guide to solve all of your problems, which is unfortunately how American Christianity tends to view it. It's a call and a guide to transform you into a better human being. Develop a universal compassion for your fellow man, and you'll find the Kingdom of Heaven within you (this will also bring great inner peace, but that's not the primary goal).

Religion aside, have you tried modifying your diet? My own autoimmune problems (as I understand it, IBS is often autoimmune related) have been improved a lot more by diet than by any prescribed medication. My basic rule is "no grains, legumes, or dairy", which I borrowed from a friend who improved a lot by following it. When I keep to that rule strictly, my own health and well-being improve dramatically. This is close to some Auto-Immune Protocol diets, as well as some paleo ones, so it's not just me. The underlying theory is that these foods trigger damaging autoimmune responses in a lot of people, and AFAIK there's some research to back that up. But I do know it works for me, and it's worth trying out for a month to see if it works for you.

It can be frustrating to switch to at first, but after a week or two you stop craving things like bread and cheese. Potatoes and sweet potatoes are alright to eat, so get a lot of them. If you can't persist without grains at all, white rice is supposedly the least bad.

I don't know how you can consider yourself an educated person if you haven't even read the Bible. It's not just for religious nuts, you know.
