Bringing it all together before and during COVID-19

Before the Pandemic era.
Some Memories & Events

Facebook shared an auto memory from the past which I like to share as an introduction to this post. It triggered my consciousness to create this post.

This memory is of my second son Shuan, finishing his two year voluntary mission in England to return back to Singapore, with a stopover first to visit my second daughter in Boston.


It reminded me of why he served a mission to follow his older brother Han, who followed his older sister Su, where maybe my joining the Church as the first in the family to do so may have started the chain reaction. 


I used the photos he had sent to me in his weekly emails home that I transferred to journals starting here that ends here for example. I then used it to share a voice recording above of a long entertaining talk by Cleon Skousen who also explains how it is possible that a Savior could pay for the sins of everyone on earth, consistent with the scriptures of The Church of Jesus Christ. The scriptures can be found in this journal where the above video is shared. Transcript of his talk can be read here.

Now I didn't need Cleon Skousen's talk and scriptures shared to know that Jesus Christ is real or that he really atoned for Man's sins. All I had to do was to exercise faith in the Savior, keep his commandments and receive personal revelations direct from him which happened over 40 years ago recorded in my Spiritlane journal that starts here to be continue to this day. 

Now FaceBook uses something called "Pattern Recognition" which in a more technical term from the computer science world that uses algorithms or computer codes to read and record the behavior or interest of the human user. The objective is of course to direct advertisements that match the recorded interest of the user so that the advertisers paying FaceBook would get more positive sales responses. It is a Win Win situation for everyone including the ordinary FaceBook user like me who enjoys all the benefits or the features of using the social network for free! However I don't just depend on FaceBook media alone to store or share my well researched information of life or human consciousness especially of my own! I have my own online journals that has no advertisements to share my own discoveries like an understanding pattern recognition subject found here.

Now why did I explain all of the above? Well it's simply my habit since young to learn good or useful things that benefited me and later always shared freely with family & friends. They are therefore free of charge and will not have any distracting advertisements common in social media sites today!

From my journal, I could recall the visit of a newly called Apostle of the Church, Elder Neal A Maxwell, that I got to meet during my mission days while serving in Singapore. 

The exact day of the event recorded in my book journal is 27th Aug 1981.

He was called by the same Prophet of our Church who had issued me my mission call, President Spencer W. Kimball who greatly influenced me to write journals as per this article of his here.


Elder Maxwell is indeed a spiritual and eloquent speaker who highlighted the important restoration work of the Prophet Joseph Smith.

The prophets of our modern day seem to continue the great work of the Savior in preparation for his second coming. President Kimball's book and life touched me immensely in my life that I brought this old book for a talk I gave in KL branch shared in this journal.

Beginning of the Pandemic

Now the pandemic came as a surprise in the first quarter of 2020, in the month of March as recorded in my familylane journal My journals and book writing project slowed down as more time was spent on deeper research in the Body Mind Spirit (EQ IQ SQ) of Man's tripartite nature that I had configured. At best, I could share all the journals of my life, which is on going all the time anyway with updates, collected at www.AbacusToCloud.com

This book caught my attention from my library as it covers the Book of Isaiah in the Old Testament as well as well as in the Book of Mormon that includes the teachings of Isaiah. Reading Isaiah teachings in the Book of Mormon was like going through a "Desert" stretch that I found difficult to go through in 1979 when I first joined the Church. It was like having a preference to read the New Testament instead of the Old and when reading the Book of Mormon, I would read through the "Desert" stretch quickly with a desire to get to the other stories that I could understand better!

Like a miracle, this book came to my attention during the Pandemic! 


Then with online technology, I could find the video below and update myself of the work and life of Avraham Gileadi from his website at www.isaiahinstitute.com

During the pandemic, I had definitely more time locked down at home or in my office library to be inspired to pick up books I wanted to reread that further enlightened me during this unprecedented era of my lifetime!

Everything was like OPT Optimal Performance & Thinking sequence for me before and during the Pandemic!

Happy Birthday to my Mother

Dear Ma,

Happy 100th Birthday today which is relevant even though we had a funeral for you when you passed away at 60 years old for three main reasons. Firstly, you chose to accept the Gospel and to be baptized at your own will, so we share a common belief that Man(including woman) still lives on after death as a Spirit being until the resurrection. This is to take place during the prophesied end days of our world which seems closer today! Secondly, as space and time is still measured by Man on earth, it makes sense to me that you would be celebrating your 100th Birthday today as I'm still alive on earth following earth time now in Kuala Lumpur. Last but not least, today is a Thursday which I've designated to be my Deep Thinking day so I remember your birthday and like to share my heart with you and some thoughts. 

In August last year of 2020, I solved the mystery of where the black and white photo of you and I was taken at, who kept this photo since young till today. 


More details of the day trip to the island can be found in my Facebook post here.

The ability to unravel this mystery happened in the most unique time of my life and that is during the world COVID-19 pandemic that started in early 2020. Before going to Melaka, I went up to Penang to visit Moon Lean, my oldest sister.

I was visiting with my former mission companion David Soon whom you know. We were serving in Malaysia/Singapore in 1980-82 with a unique opportunity as pioneer missionaries who were able to visit our parents, now and then! 

It was through sister that I got to know my mystical cousin Ong Chin Hooi who has psychic powers who had passed away on 12 Nov 2019. Since young I had always heard about the mystical things that Penang island seem to possess but living in the modern city of Kuala Lumpur, I was too preoccupied with my life to find out more. In my latter years, I took time to discover and recall to create a special journal to cover this aspect of life found at Be More, Know How.

I know you are aware of these things, being born in Penang but following Pa with his well educated western background, I guess you are less exposed to the experiences as compared to oldest sister who lived there all her life since birth.

After Penang and then Melaka, I decided to go camping Aussie style with my Malaysian friend you've met in Geelong...
Remember your trip to visit me in Geelong during summer of 1978? Tong Leong my 'sifu' seated closest to the camera who taught me everything about outdoor life in Australia is seated closest to the camera. He had become a citizen of Australia and decided to go on a "Malaysia 2nd home" program where he could live in Malaysia with his family.
Standing 2nd from the right is his younger brother who was my outdoor buddy for bike riding, camping etc who is also from the same school together in St.John's. This pic was taken when I left for Australia for my tertiary education in Feb1977. I am always close with my friends and have a habit of organizing reunions in small numbers or large groups as shared in this journal.

As you are aware, the mother of our family Geok Lee or my wife passed away on 6 Nov 2012. I'm sure you would run into her somehow in the spirit world. I don't hear or receive vibes from you as much as from her until lately when during the pandemic, we all seem closer to the other side of the veil as we call it. From Geok Lee, the strongest connection was during the disappearance of the MH370 recorded here. 

Well from my side, you have six grand children and two great grand ones as of today! Under the Lord's guidance and the Spirit of Elijah, family history work and seeking our ancestors has made good progress. Today technology has definitely advanced greatly to make everything that was once impossible become amazingly possible as shared in my family journal here with Geok Lee.

At the last General Conference of the Church on 4th April 2021, which happens to be Geok Lee's birthday too, it was announced that a Temple of the Church will be built in Singapore! We used to have to take a plane to fly to a Temple of the Church to participate in temple ordinances but no longer once the temple is built in Singapore! In the temple, I always feel there is just a thin veil separating the living from the dead. Everyone in Singapore and Malaysia were overjoyed to hear the announcement.

I am grateful that without any persuasion from me when I came home from Australia in Feb 1980 to inform the family that I would be serving a voluntary 2 year mission for the Church, you choose to take discussions from the elderly couple missionaries to prepare to be baptized.(KL branch photo dated April 1981)

This photo is dated 30th April, 1981 recorded in my early life journal that has a copy of your baptism certificate too.


Love you very much Ma and happy to know we can all be together again one day with Geok Lee too.

God bless!

2021 first Spiritlane post

In the year 2020, the church members world wide focused on the study of the Book of Mormon online. In 2021 the focus is on the study of the Doctrine of Covenants. Watch the video to learn why the study of the two books are important:



Rushing out to shop in the city on Sunday morning? What's happening Sun Fu Chong???

The answer is simply my excitement in life at this time of our world pandemic that allowed me to be lost in time where I could do more Thinking and some thing else that came to me as a personal revelation at the start of the new year of 2021, I was continuing to be Seeking as I've always been doing in my life time explained in a special Consciousness journal I created here. So the simple answer to my gross error was I was too busy engrossed in my seeking activities of my research and wasn't thinking about normal schedules of the week as the lockdown totally freed my mind from them! I actually experienced what my research was informing me. Quantum physics has shown that space and time are illusions of perception! (Note: Underlined words when clicked provides more meaning or elaboration)

I am blessed with verified knowledge & personal experience from the past and present. I am blessed with a vision of the future that is deemed spiritual, the S of BMS. B is body with feelings/emotions that assist with memory in the limbic lower area of the brain while M is for the Mind, the processor or creator of principles & systems found in the upper brain or cortex area or even outside the brain as per the phenomena taught by Descartes.

How one domain interacts with the other can only be fully known when Scientists and Spiritualists agree on what is the truth of Life or maybe simply answering the question, "Who Am I?" We are moving into the 2nd year of lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic that is still not under control in Malaysia and many parts of the world. More people are accessing the internet in this era of time when physical activities of people interaction or travel has been very much restricted.

When there is less physical activities in my life, I tend to become more *intellectual and spiritual*. Allow me to briefly share some continued miracles in my life that occurred online and even offline just in the past week of this February month. My intense focus on unraveling the mystery of Human Consciousness led me to find a Dutch man named Michael Rogge through his website entitled, MAN and the unknown. He has produced over a thousand video clips shared in YouTube. Photos can be found in Flickr. More on this new special friend from Holland later.

Let me begin first on the series of things that were happening in this February month including finding this Dutchman... Well we have all heard of the term algorithms used in computers. With my research on human consciousness, I'm discovering they're talking today about algorithms in our brain in neuroscience too. The basic definition of an algorithm is simple: a step-by-step set of instructions for solving a problem or performing a task explained simply here. From this basic principle, it has led to amazing creations or inventions by Man for example in areas of our concern like healthcare.

In the month of Feb 2021 for the Chinese new year celebration of the Ox year, Malaysia was under the most extreme conditions of an emergency lockdown by the government. More time was spent indoors where I have noted earlier, from the past year experience, I become more intellectual and spiritual!

Example of the series of events how computer algorithm led me to interact with what I believe to be a set of algorithms in my brain follows: 

1) Some conversations on the net via WhatsApp on the passing of an old school teacher named Mrs Kang at 82 years of age led me to create a memorial post for her though she never taught me in my old school of St Johns but she was senior enough that most students knew who she was. The family had opted to have a private wake as well as burial since we were under emergency MCO where only family members could gather. Information was circulating in the various old school WhatsApp groups that enabled me to pick up sufficient content to complete the memorial post. I did find out that the family were using the funeral parlour near my home in KL but due to the family request that it should be attended by family members only where it was a time of SOP from the government with the emergency MCO in effect, I humbly complied.

2) I decided to visit the Kwong Tong cemetery nearby where they have the Pagoda columbarium where the ashes of my father and sister are kept. 


When I went home, something started happening to tell me it's occurring again. What is that one might ask? I could answer in two ways. One is that I'm living up to my Chinese given name, 山福 Sun Fu or Mountain of Luck. The other is I've broken the Enigma code where I actually watched a movie on this topic during the pandemic year of 2020 about Alan Turing! So I seem to be able to continue unraveling or solving puzzles of life that others can't seem to do it but I could.

Well personally, from living for so long and doing my best to record my life as one who was always Thinking a lot on my own since young to later go out to Seek for the answers, I consider myself really lucky to be endowed with both! What actually happened when while my mind was focused on this sister who died so young, a friend of hers from school who lived in the neighborhood when they were young and later met up again as adults in Australia later on in life, connected to me on Facebook out of the blue during the Chinese New Year celebration! A paranormal incident perhaps? If I had the time, I could add this to my Story of 7 journal where I have been too busy in life to update it with all my miracle stories when they happen!

I had the chance to ask her so many questions interacting with her online almost daily! She helped me fill in all the blanks I had when I tried so hard to help my father, who passed away first and then this youngest sister who had been living out on her own most times as an adult! She did go to Australia and met this old friend too for a couple of years before returning back to KL! I was in contact with my father all my adult married life and have this special journal to record my meeting with him a year before he passed away. I had bought an office on the same floor as his, after starting my own business that began with a small room at his office, so I was never far away over the years.

3) So this Chinese New Year of the Ox, was the first that I was really locked down on my own away from my family members outside Malaysia who were also locked down at the start of 2021. The pandemic in 2020 only started after the Chinese New Year and I had visits in KL from my oldest daughter and husband earlier from the US and then the four boys came up to visit me from Singapore later. My second daughter was expecting her second baby in a few months so we didn't expect her to travel that year. 

However, being the Chinese New Year celebration, I could still move around the city and was invited for dinner for the Eve as well as on the First day of Chinese New Year by close friends to help me feel the Chinese New Year spirit! With all the children outside Malaysia, we have always been getting together online for various celebrations or special occasions. Here is my journal post of how I traditionally ushered in the New Year of the OX, offline and online!

Now let me refer to the Dutchman mentioned above named Michael Rogge. I came across his website that got me excited as for the first time, after so many years, I found someone who was interested in sharing his online work on the same topic of Human Consciousness with the difference that he is 91 years old. This is over 30 years more experience in life than me. He has also traveled the world where he had filmed his travels of the past to convert them to YouTube, over a thousand two hundred of them!

I could even find a video of Kuala Lumpur he recorded in the year I was born! Isn't that cool? I have also embedded the video above, compliments of Michael Rogge, in my Independence Day journal post

Soon we began to exchange emails regularly where he responded well to my usually direct questions to him. I informed him that I did visit Rotterdam and Amsterdam in my early years where I could share this travel journal of mine with him. I had the good fortune to start travelling the world since I was 18 years of age and while he was using a movie camera in his travels, I didn't have that privilege in my younger days but I had the camera. To me these photos or videos(later life) capture the feelings embedded in my Consciousness that when I go through them years later, it augments my memory in life to link everything that happened to this current day to really be able to answer the question "Who am I" without the need for a third party to inform me or to start seeking for the answer in my advanced years!

Though I didn't get the opportunity of using imaging technology in my younger days, I'm most grateful today that in 1977, I opted to study computer science as a major in my business course in Australia. That allowed me to learn a technology that eventually revolutionized the world that I could share with my own family when I came of age to start my own IT and consulting business. It helped me achieve many breakthroughs when I chose to become an entrepreneur early in life. Today in my young sixties, I can connect with the world to learn and continue to share as much as I know or understand, organized by my own algorithm just as how Rogge did here using technology, amazingly in his nineties! 

To find Michael Rogge after so many years I know is not by chance as it was already in my algorithm mentioned above. I have been reading his amazing writings on the topic of Consciousness of our mutual interest since the start of our Chinese New Year! 

I had let my pattern recognition of algorithms, explained below, to do the work of first reading his voluminous subjects put together like a concise encyclopedia on Consciousness, from research and experience of his own! We started to also regularly write to each other where I'm the one asking him questions and he has responded well. 

There were the first two important questions I felt impressed to ask him that I felt if he were to inform me, I would be able to comprehend or get an idea of his Consciousness. First I asked if he was ever married and raised a family and second was whether he was spiritual or follows a religion. He answered negative on both to me and to be fair to him, I introduced myself as a family man and spiritual man who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He did acknowledge that he did follow Theosophy until 1958. On further scanning the web I could learn that "The purpose of Theosophy and the aim of Theosophists is again to revive interest in these fundamental truths of religion which lie beneath the ritual and external forms, the picturesque and man-made garments with which they have been clothed." (Ref : From this reference, I can see that Theosophy isn't so much of a religion but an academic way of attempting to explain the many religions that are found in the world!)


I watched this video to have a clearer understanding of what Theosophy was about and yes it is an academic exercise to explain religion! He also mentioned his interest in the Indonesian practice of Subud latihan with an excerpt of his email as follows:

 "As my grandfather was minister in Surabaya end of 19th century and his sons were also staying in Indonesia I’m saturated with stories about life there. I’m also reading a lot of its past history. Chinese played an important part in its development. I helped introducing the Indonesian practice of the Subud latihan in the West in the fifties. One of the latest books I bought is on the phenomenon of stone ‘rains’ in Indonesia. There are a number of accounts of suddenly stones coming down indoors in houses from two meters’ height. Also Theosophy had its biggest lodge in Indonesia, with Chinese. Indonesian (president Sukarno) and Dutch members. I was myself a onetime member until 1958. "

It is interesting for me to read that the name "Subud" is an acronym that stands for three Javanese words, Susila Budhi Dharma, which are derived from the Sanskrit terms suśīla (good-tempered), buddhi, and dharma.

The meaning depends on the context in which they are being used. The original Sanskrit root words are defined differently than Pak Subuh indicates:

Sanskrit

Suśīla: "well-disposed", "having an amiable disposition", "good-tempered".[4]
Buddhi: "intelligence, mind, reason".
Dharma: the Law that "upholds, supports or maintains the regulatory order of the universe".

Pak Subuh
Pak Subuh gives the following definitions:

Susila: the good character of man in accordance with the Will of Almighty God.
Budhi: the force of the inner self within man.
Dharma: surrender, trust and sincerity towards Almighty God.

It is interesting for me to read the above as years ago when I started my research in 2003, I derived my own 3 word definitions with some elaboration here.

Soon I was ready to use my technique of computer/brain algorithms mentioned above to analyze the Consciousness of Rogge in relationship to mine. These algorithms derived from computer science is equivalent to the brain science of psychology named as pattern recognition that I believe I am also using. In my life long learning habit, I came across something science is still discovering further in self-organization in the realm of molecular biology known as Biomimetics or Stigmergy explained in more depth here. (stigmergy

With my pattern recognition connecting with algorithms on my computer that leads me to my own information database, plus my latest awareness of molecular biology, I could scan all the information Rogge has shared in his website here. He seemed to have similar interest with me for deep knowledge where he has continued updating his site even in 2021 when he turns 92! 

I knew he had written a lot on Science and shared a lot of information on different religions. He particularly singled one he named as "Christian Myth" that shared the roots of 2 other major religions of the world which is Islam and Judaism. He also shared another page entitled, "On the psychology of Christian Movements" where he shared a 3rd party negative hypothesis of the founder of our Church named Joseph Smith. He was apologetic to me on email saying, "My apologies once more if I have offended your belief " and I wrote in my reply email, "I respond to you quickly to know that my Consciousness today is such that I can't be offended by anyone easily especially if it is about religion. Thank you again for sharing such straightforward and sincere answers or commentaries as that is optimal for me to learn from you, of your life as well as Holland that I just passed by in the winter of 1976 to know it was a most unusual country but never had the chance to return!"

From his response to my two questions above, his answer being that he was never married and neither did he follow any religion, it confirmed my feelings that he was an atheist or one who does not believe God exists. It also explained his lack of appreciation of a long term relationship with a real human being as a marriage partner in life.   

After spending time scanning his volumes of scientific writings, reading in detail several of them,  I would like to share this link about a very smart Jewish woman named Rebecca Goldstein. She is a highly educated academician, born from a family of conservative Jews and became an accomplished author of non-fiction and fictional books. She became an interest to me due to my interaction with Rogge as both are very intellectual and seem to regard themselves as atheists. I've observed that the people of the western world who are more advanced in science and technology with their intellect somehow believe less that there is a God or spiritual beings compared to the Eastern world. A Jew can still believe in God and the Savior like this Jewish woman sharing on this video.

Having said that, it doesn't mean intellectuals do not believe in God. They may or may not. My research included finding a most unique information philosopher with his knowledge shared here. He also has one of his books in pdf version found here. He teaches that there was a creation phase but no creator. Now read this story of a cellular biologist who believes there is a God with his detailed explanation in a long pdf file found here. Latest science in a video of epigenetics explains greater understanding and limitations of the DNA. There was of course a rejection of the evolution theory by religious groups. In short, Rogge's position as an atheist from his point of view in light of the great controversy in the world whether there is a God who created the world or not is of no surprise. Nor would his decision not to be married as not believing that God exists would certainly make marriage seem an unimportant act.

I don't consider myself an intellectual in as much as I can read and figure out intellectual principles using my intuition or algorithm that I created myself and with sufficient repetition can even memorize them. As I was the youngest in my family with a large gap in age with my siblings to interact with, I had much time alone to be an introspective person. As I grew up and found similar age of friends at school to interact with, only then I felt more a complete or whole person! Little did I know that this interaction habit of mine with others some how increased my personal knowledge and capabilities acquired from other human beings.

I like to note that those who interacted with me could be positive agents for me and themselves. However, now and then there will be the negative agents who I believe due to lack of control of their own personal emotions chose to disrupt or challenge my peaceful life. I noticed that in the long run, they hurt or sabotage their own lives, self-esteem or relationships. Law of Karma seems true like truths taught in many religions of the world that I study and respect. Laws of the universe are after all definitely basically true and consistent with variations only due to the Consciousness of the master teaching them during the time of the world when they lived and the followers who may have slightly distorted or misinterpreted the original teachings if there was no systematic or technical way of preserving them for time and eternity.

It took many years later before I learned how to interact with the Spirit or non-visual personages. I started late as my focus from young was on intellectual education. When I was about to finish it, I started to explore spiritual education. I was so impressed with the new pattern of learning that I continued to work on it to apply it in my personal life and later for my family to clock over 40 years of knowledge and experience at this time of writing. The video below explains about this "pattern of light" :



I also felt I could work or interact with gadgets, equipment etc. that are man-made including computers linked to the modern science of Quantum Physics today that I have been researching. I was just amazed how an ordinary person like me could do so many things successfully at my own pace. I truly am genuinely or humbly amazed of my accomplishments, knowing fully the weaknesses of the Body and Mind that I have. Just work hard and Never Never Give Up was my belief thanks to the examples of many close to me.

It prompted me to have the desire to learn even more to call it my life's continuing personal research that could help others do the same once I have perfected it myself in knowledge & practice! I know that is possible as all my life, I've been sharing and teaching others to perform and be better and they did! I know as I'm always connecting with them whether in person or online as another long time habit of mine. It led to findings I call the tri-partite nature of man due to my constant interaction activities in these 3 areas given Chinese sounding acronyms as follows:

First there is my Body (EQ) important for relationships or feelings

WEI is the acronym I use to represent my strength in "Western Eastern Interaction" relating to people of both worlds.

Second is my Mind (IQ) important for reasoning or logic

CHI is the acronym I use to represent my strength in "Computer Human Interaction" relating to algorithms

Third is my Spirit (SQ) important for faith or openness

SHI is the acronym I use to represent my strength in "Spirit Human Interaction" relating to divinity

I use the word 'interaction' as found in physics where the fundamental interactions, also known as fundamental forces, are the interactions that do not appear to be reducible to more basic interactions. There are four fundamental interactions known to exist: the gravitational and electromagnetic interactions, which produce significant long-range forces whose effects can be seen directly in everyday life, and the strong and weak interactions, which produce forces at minuscule, subatomic distances and govern nuclear interactions.

I acquired very good Western Eastern Interaction(WEI) experience, having been born in Malaya just after independence from the British to have travelled frequently between both worlds. With my Computer Human Interaction(CHI) skillset, I have been able to keep up with technology and the fast growing information that comes with it. Last but not least, I'm grateful for the wonderful years of Spirit Human Interaction(SHI) as a priesthood holder in my faith and my interaction with many people of different faith and religions, to appreciate more of what we have in common than our differences.

My Dream state and Interactions with Michael Rogge

A very unusual day indeed where after I share some brief content on this day, it needs to be continued in my Transpersonal Psychology website. It will be more appropriate to share my breakthrough experience of figuring out the algorithm or pattern recognition of the mind of this very intelligent Dutchman that has captured my attention since a few days before the Chinese New Year celebration.

I create this simple chart to help me be more aware of the time, event and our ages, his being more relevant, of our similar activities in life with relevant links given to his shared history online that I have read where possible.

My Age     Rogge's Age  My year/s  Rogge Year/s                Event 
13+                  41+              70s                 70s              Me - Karate, Roge - Taichi
19+                  57+             1977              1986                    Studied Computer
39+                  67+             1997              1996                         Used Internet
48+                  77+             2006              2006                        Used YouTube
61+                  91+             2021              2021                        First met online 


It was the Easter weekend and our Church General Conference would start on Saturday 3 April at 10am Utah time which would be 12am or 12midnight on Sunday 4 April in Malaysia and 6pm on Saturday 3 April in Amsterdam. I figured out this time zone differences for reason that I did send an email to Rogge informing him of the 10am Church conference session in Utah so that he could click the link that I sent to him if he was interested to watch, being the Easter weekend too.

4 April 2021
General Conference of the Church

My Happiest Day! A Temple of our Church has been announced to be built in Singapore!!! https://bit.ly/3mlKzSM





It's my happiest day not only because the Lord's temple is going to be so close for all of us living in Malaysia and Singapore, as announced by the Prophet in the above timed-video, but also Geok Lee's birthday is on 4 April. Whether she is alive or in the spirit world, she is still touching lives!


The blessing of having the General Conference during this pandemic Easter weekend  is we could get more people around the world to participate in the online conference. I was touched to hear and see the faithful saints from around the world, young and old, speaking or singing that brought tears to my eyes when I watched the above timed-videos!

April 26-May 2 Doctrine and Covenants online lesson

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with a dream that quickly disappears. I might want to pick up my phone to read our online weekly lessons if I can't go back to sleep immediately and I did exactly that to capture what exactly happened and what personal revelation I received as follows:

Extract from Revelation for the Church, Revelation for Our Lives
By President Russell M. Nelson, from April General Conference 2018 (Ref)

"Pray in the name of Jesus Christ about your concerns, your fears, your weaknesses—yes, the very longings of your heart. And then listen! Write the thoughts that come to your mind. Record your feelings and follow through with actions that you are prompted to take. As you repeat this process day after day, month after month, year after year, you will “grow into the principle of revelation.”

(Got out from bed to use my PC as there are more tools I can use to create this post to record what happened early Monday morning of 26 April 2021 at about 4am according to my computer screen shot)

It was exactly what I did since I joined the Church over 40 years ago to learn about writing paper journals that were converted online here under the Spiritlane name I had chosen to later in the year 2021 include all the other journals I had written over the years in a collective website in line with latest technology available at www.AbacustoCloud.com

As you repeat this process day after day, month after month, year after year, you will “grow into the principle of revelation." were the key words I read in bed on my phone to get up and update my latest journal online with my PC, to record my feelings and actions to follow. I am also reminded why I've been blessed for so many years for things I have acted out as recorded here.

It all started with just these two screen shots of what I read from my phone in bed early on Monday morning!

During the pandemic era of the world that started in Malaysia since March 2020, MCO Movement Control Order was enforced in Malaysia like most other developed countries in the world. It has persisted till the current time of writing in the year 2021. I have used the time well to update my ongoing life journals to even organized them in a collection of websites found at www.AbacusToCloud.com



Key word is ORGANIZE





2020 first post

This first Spiritlane post in 2020 promises to be shorter in the number of words in a page by use of more hyperlinks, photos & videos when compared to previous posts of the past. The main reason for this change is that I need all the spare time to complete my first book to be available online as planned. I wrote to my late wife about it as mentioned here.

It will still maintain a long tradition of mine to share honestly feelings and thoughts of my heart and mind respectively. This is in line with the trend of the modern world of today that calls it transparency.

This post is timely as the General Conference of the Church is happening this weekend. 2020 is a significant year for the Church as it is the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Church by Joseph Smith, the Prophet of the Restoration. I feel the spirit very strongly to write this Spiritlane post at the end of the first quarter of the year 2020. Note that I am not an alarmist. My Consciousness is based on the tripartite nature of Man I have perceived had two of its parts rattled very quickly as we moved into the new year.

For the Body part, was the Corona Virus or COVID-19 pandemic that occurred and the Mind part was the sudden change of the politics or government in Malaysia. I was silent in my own written journals other than making a note or two to chronologically keep a record of the events. I felt that they were all already well covered by the press and the social media groups so that my further commentary or thoughts was not really necessary.

Before the sudden change of government in Malaysia and the outbreak of the COVID-19, late in the year 2019, I was preoccupied with the law and politics as well as living/health conditions applied to a community in the city of Kuala Lumpur, highlighted in a special website I created at www.BlueBoyMansion.com  Fortunately, many of the important and urgent matters were resolved before the local and international crisis began. I considered it the Lord's blessings as I was working round the clock tirelessly. I knew I had the Spirit with me in heart and mind to help solve different problems and challenges that arose as well as to give me the energy to move with swiftness.

When a "lockdown" was implemented on 18 March 2020 for two weeks and later extended to April 14, I made myself useful indoors, actively organizing things that were neglected in the past:

Much of the neglect to organize physical things was plainly due to the transformation of technology from the physical to the digital where most information could be kept in computer disks and today even in the cloud as the following photo depicts...


However, that is only a lame excuse as we have not become a paperless world yet so we need to continue to organize our papers, books and things that we or I use! As a metaphor, we are still physical beings who have not become back to a totally spirit form yet so matter still needs to be organized around us! To me I was a spiritual being born to have an earthly experience and I have learned so much.

On Sunday 29 March of 2020, the KL branch conducted its first Online Fast and Testimony meeting due to the "lockdown" where the Church instruction was for all members to stay home.

Isn't technology wonderful?


I felt inspired to share my personal testimony on Facebook for the first time giving a link to my testimony shared in my journal, the night before our online meeting.


On Monday 30th March 2020, exciting things were happening to me through the internet:

This video came to my attention online:


This is not an official presentation from the Church but shared by a member diligent in his studies of the scriptures and observant of the events that has been happening in the Church.

Watching it made me connect the dots to know why President Nelson has been acting rather boldly recently in his communication online.

Click the photo below to read his full message to us:


These words caught my attention :

The Second Coming

"The Lord will return to the land that He made holy by His mission there in mortality. In triumph, He will come again to Jerusalem. In royal robes of red to symbolize His blood, which oozed from every pore, He shall return to the Holy City (see Doctrine and Covenants 133:46–48). There and elsewhere, “the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together” (Isaiah 40:5; see also Doctrine and Covenants 101:23). His “name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
He will govern from two world capitals: one in old Jerusalem (see Zechariah 14) and the other in the New Jerusalem “built upon the American continent” (Articles of Faith 1:10). From these centers He will direct the affairs of His Church and kingdom. Another temple will yet be built in Jerusalem. From that temple He shall reign forever as Lord of Lords. Water will issue from under the temple. Waters of the Dead Sea will be healed. (See Ezekiel 47:1–8.)"
On the eve of General Conference, I received an email from the Church screen captured below:


Wow, this is going to be an inspiring conference as remembered in my more detailed or wordy account shared just before the April 2018 General Conference found here.

Enjoy and I hope the sharing of my simple testimony of the Savior, that he lives and will come back to us again can inspire you to find eternal meaning and purpose in your life, even a greater knowledge of eternal truths. This General Conference will be broadcast live in a special way that we will not have the usual audience of max capacity of about 20,000 people in the conference hall as in previous years due to the lockdown. Click here to watch it or know the timing of when it will start. (Postdated comment: As this journal was written live as conference was proceeding, the link to watch the video was changed after the live conference ended to be viewed historically by clicking here instead.

Above text was typed before the start of the General Conference in the US date of April 4th,2020.

The writings below are made after the end of the Sunday morning session of April 5th US time:

In the April 2018 General Conference mentioned above with the link, I shared my experience of predicting a topic that would be covered before the conference itself by publishing my prediction on Facebook before watching the conference.

This time round, I had no intention to repeat the prediction feat again but nevertheless felt the impression that it would be something to do with the 2nd coming of the Savior. For some reason, I was reviewing videos on the First Vision by the Prophet Joseph Smith. I decided to share publicly in Facebook as comments in two posts that I made found below:




This video was shared in the comments section in Facebook post I dated Sat 4th April 2020 at 20:48

Screenshot of my post found in the comments section by clicking the above link "Facebook post 1" is seen below:



This video was shared in the comments section in Facebook post 2 dated Sun 5th April 2020 at 18:34

Screenshot of my post found in the comments section by clicking the above link "Facebook post 2" is seen below:


Both the local time and date of my two video posts in the comments section were before the start of the Sunday morning conference 10 am session as US time was behind our Malaysian time by 26 hours.

President Russell M. Nelson ended the Sunday Morning session of General Conference as the last speaker. Towards the end of his talk, he explained about proclamations issued by the Church in the past and announced that a 6th Proclamation of the Church was being released this General Conference entitled, "The Restoration of the Fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A Bicentennial Proclamation to the World" He then played a prerecorded video found below, to read the Proclamation. The session ended by inviting all members to participate in a worldwide solemn assembly and Hosanna Shout.

It was a nice coincidence that President Nelson specially read the new Proclamation in Palmyra shared through a prerecorded video during the conference when I was viewing other videos too of the First Vision in Palmyra.  

After the conference session ended, I found the proclamation document online here.

Postdated comments:

On the following weekend after Conference was Easter celebration and I made this comment on my Facebook page where I had shared about the Easter online celebration by our Church, "In my 7 year research on the deep topic of Human Consciousness, Caroline Myss whose book I read, "Anatomy of the Spirit', which shares her skill as a medical intuitive person in her life in this Easter Video seem to suggest she is awakening to understand the Savior and his purpose. Listen to her speak sincerely here https://bit.ly/34HsDcf"

Why I was inspired to share this comment is that most Western writers who are science based tend to write with a style of being politically correct to classify their context to be Spiritual in nature instead of mentioning the Savior's name.  I'm glad when I started writing this Spiritlane journal just over 40 years ago at this point in writing, I shared my testimony about Jesus Christ with an introduction found here.

How powerful and timely indeed that the bold proclamation document of the Church was released to the world! In my Familylane journal post, I also made a first post in 2020 announcing current and future additions to our family that can be read here.

Besides Caroline Myss, others I had covered in my research whom I was inspired to check out of their views during this pandemic of the world is Gary Gustav who created a long video with his wife Linda to present their views here. 

Since members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sustained President Russell M. Nelson as the Church’s 17th president two years ago, he has logged well over 115,000 miles — traveling to six continents, 32 nations and territories and 49 cities.

He has met with members in large and small settings — often addressing them in their own language — and with world leaders. He has also reached out to victims of crime, comforted those grieving and acknowledged dozens of children.

The goal of the 95-year-old world religious leader is “to build bridges of cooperation rather than walls of segregation.” It is the kind of outreach that touches entire congregations and individuals at the same time. It is a ministry that inspires the masses to look forward. “There is much more to come,” said President Nelson of the work, the 16 million Latter-day Saints and the global church he leads.

This documentary highlights President Nelson’s worldwide ministry, his outreach to world government and religious leaders, his focus on the rising generation, and his ministry to the one.

It first aired on KSL-TV in Salt Lake City on April 5, 2020:



Post-dated comments on 20 May 2021: My thoughts after watching all the travelling done by President Nelson to cover the world is that maybe the prophet knew that the Covid-19 would lock down the world by a pandemic that is still widespread today preventing any air-travel around the world!

Church talk for zoom meeting



Monday 17 Aug 2020
With partial MCO still in operations, I had time to view many relevant videos about our world pandemic to find this interesting video of one of our Apostles being interviewed online :


I was truly surprised that I could find an Apostle of our Church rambling in an interview to appreciate his shared experience on this season of COVID-19 pandemic that allowed us to have more personal time like I had to view more videos as depicted below:


So I didn't feel guilty to lay on my deck chair to watch more YouTube videos way past midnight but look at this video below I happened to come across!



Wow.. I was wondering is this my lucky streak or continued personal revelation I've been receiving all my life even without the need of COVID-19? The producer/owner of the video Jodi Stoddard had changed the authorization of sharing the video to only through the original YouTube video found here.

My OPT Optimal Performance & Thinking seem to be kicking in more in these humbling times! Optimal is the best one can achieve and it is not a state of perfection. There will always be the objective and subjective interaction or forces existing. Finding Jodi Stoddard video's is one thing but how about finding this book in my possession?


Wow I read it cover to cover at a greater speed of understanding than when I first read Isaiah's writings in the Bible and that found in the Book of Mormon! A desert patch after reading the greener pasture like words in 1st Nephi to suddenly being hit by Isaiah's teachings in 2nd Nephi! With Gileadi's book, everything became clearer to me. Watch the amazing videos for a wake up call found at Isaiah Institute's page here.


3 Sep 2020

It was announced at the end of August last month, as we celebrated Malaysia's 63rd Independence or Merdeka day recorded here in my journal, that the partial lockdown would continue to 31st Dec of this year. The continued lockdown conditions was not unexpected as world conditions of the pandemic has not improved or even worsened in advanced countries like the US.

I used the additional time of partial lockdown to spend quiet time researching on the internet as well as working on adding more content to my first book to be published. On this day I started early in the morning with an impression to search for some information that I had been looking for in a journal post written on a date over 41 years ago. Click here to go back to that journal post written in 1979 where I was overjoyed to be able to provide the missing information on this day. What a blessing and joy to accomplish something I've been trying to do for so many years!

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

The Spirit continues to guide me in all I do which requires me to often pray, ponder and think especially when I am trying to write my journals. It's the eve of the new year of 2021. I have always been more excited on the eve of each new year as Jan 1st of each new year seems a bigger event than another birthday of my life!

I didn't want to spend too much time writing on my journals as I wanted to focus more on my book writing process. I had therefore only created one spiritual post for the whole year of 2020 for all my spiritual experiences that are noteworthy to record as found above. On this anticipation of the new year, something made me focus on James Allen's book as I decided to polish up what others had presented on his book of 7 chapters that has become a world classic! I decided to craft my own version on a new journal and post that includes a voice option to hear the words of the book that I created here.

After finishing it, I read the 7 chapters several times and while resting during the day, I would listen to the recording and repeated it before going to bed where I could select which chapter I like to listen to, made possible in my new design of the online book. Completing the new online book within the day made me feel pleased of my technological skills working with computers and devices today. As I finished working on his online book, and thought about my own book, which would be a product of my 7 years of research on the subject of human consciousness, I was inspired to add on to what James Allen had done to inspire readers on how to succeed in life.

Why I felt that there can be more truths added that Man can further learn as James Allen's book was published in the early 20th century. I am writing my journal in the 21st century where so much has been discovered in the last hundred years to make the 21st century a technological and information world far different from the 20th century era, I therefore added another old theme, also recorded in ancient scripture, "As a Man Seeketh" in the same journal where I created a different presentation of James Allen's book but found in a different page here.
