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.
Be More, Know How.
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:
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.
"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 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:
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.
Watching it made me connect the dots to know why President Nelson has been acting rather boldly recently in his communication online.

These words caught my attention :
The Second ComingOn the eve of General Conference, I received an email from the Church screen captured below:
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.
