you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... 

Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".

he knows nothing yet as he ought to know”

Jesus Taught That There Is Only One True Path To God

This Is True - And An Integral Part Of This Path, Is To Know Thyself

None Of The Systems Of Religion Today Possess This Important Esoteric Knowledge Of Self

Knowledge That Was Thrown Away By Counterfeit Priests And Pseudo-Shepherds

 

 

 

It Is Written That If The Sacred Knowledge Of The New Covenant Becomes Lost,

 "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"

The Esoteric Feminine Mystique

The idea that you must find and come to Know Thyself seems so antithetical to not only the message of the Gospel, but also most religious monastic mindsets -- with the added fact that very few people would even be able to define what it is about the self that one is required to know.   And what this means is that the whole concept of Knowing Thyself, from the perspective of the modern dogmatic and politically correct world, is representative of an incomprehensible enigma.   And this great enigmatic void is not only true of the religious world, but is equally true of the educational and scientific institutions that serve as the bedrock foundation of our modern culture.    And yet, if the Gospel of Thomas saying of Jesus is correct -- and even representative of the "Q" source that Bible scholars look for -- then it should be disconcerting to the modern believer that Jesus portrays them as dwelling in a great poverty of mind and being -- i.e., "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   But perhaps even more confusing is when this statement to Know Thyself is seen in the context of whoever attempts to save his life will loose it (Matt. 16:26) -- to the degree that one must totally deny one's self: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23).   Thus, the questions must be posed: How can one Know Thyself, and yet must lose one's self?   What is there to know, if whatever is of the self must be gotten rid of?   By all accounts, this enigma of paradoxical opposites appears to undermine all that most believers think they know about the Gospel message.   And if it is true that there is something to know about the self that, if one is ignorant of this reality of self, that one dwells in a state of abject poverty and knows nothing of any real value, then even what a believer thinks they know and believes, will remain in perpetual error.   Thus, confirming the long ignored warning: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).   Which would confirm the validity of the warning in the Epistle of Peter and James that if this paradoxical enigmatic knowledge is not understood, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"!!!  Could such a thing be true?

The Reality Of Self: What if the person you are in this world is not your real or true self?   What if your true self is more of a stranger to the person you are in this world, than to a person living on the other side of the world who you have never in your life met?   In the same way that the Islamic term Jihad is the portrayal of an inner spiritual struggle, what if the command to be fruitful and multiply is making reference to the expansion of mind and being of the physical you as an organic seed-self, to a condition of spiritual maturity where your Whole or True Self can manifest in the body-vessel?   How can this be, you ask?   What if you are what is often portrayed as the ego-self?   Or, what G.I.Gurdjieff, Philip K. Dick and other mystics portrayed as false-personalities?   The first to second century Christian Bishop Valentinus portrayed the false self as "nature-man" who had no continuation beyond physical death, because he lacked a connection with his real or true self.   When Jesus stated that you must lose yourself, what if he was making reference to the false-self that is in this world?  What if the person you are in this world is an expression of the True Self that remains UnKnown to all but those who seek to Know Thyself?   What if your True Self is unable to manifest in this world because of the physical and three-dimensional limitations on the organic body in which you are presently dwelling?     Which would mean that when Jesus made reference to the "House Divided" that cannot stand, what if he was stating that, so long as the person you are in this world remains divided from your true-self that is not manifest in the body -- primarily because of the limitations of the organic physical body -- that you, in your divided state of mind and being, cannot stand?   What if your true self is locked deep beneath your being -- at a depth of mind and being that you cannot readily access because of the limitations of the physical body-vessel -- and the ancient adage that is proclaimed in the Gospel of Thomas is a statement of fact that unless the false or ego-self brings about an inner union or marriage with their true-self that is not manifest in the body-vessel, that you can have no real permanence -- dwelling in a state of profound mental and spiritual poverty, as seen in the words of the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".  And if this is true, then it must be recognized that the false ego-self can't replace the true-self and go to Glory in the hereafter -- and neither can the false ego-self reincarnate -- and while the essence of the person you are in this world will survive physical death, your after-death reality will not be what you imagine based upon any of the present world's religions and philosophies. 

Who Are You? The person you are at present is the product of the temporal culture and time-frame in which you are presently living -- and as such, few people have given any thought to the fact that, if you preserve and attempt to save that which is temporal and false, that you will have squandered your life away?   Which provokes the question: What if what is often portrayed as the ego-self, is the person you are in this world, while the true self exists at a deeper level of mind and being and cannot easily manifest in the person whose thinking, mindset and lifestyle is founded upon the temporal cultures and lifestyles of this world?   And what if when Jesus makes reference to the blind, deaf and those incapable of understanding with any depth of comprehension, it is in reference to those who are carnal and anchored to this world -- which condition of mind is that portrayed as dwelling in what Jesus said was the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness)?    Which means that what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness", portrayed the outer realms of our own physical mind which is limited to three dimensions -- and this limiting barrier must be overcome if we are to prevail over the forces of nature -- i.e., "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more" (Rev 3:12 NKJ).   Which means that the Commandment to "enter in at the narrow strait gate" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ), possesses an important meaning that few people are even prepared to contemplate.  

What if beyond the barrier of the inner wall of consciousness where the true self dwells, all truths were seen and known in the Light of a naked and totally revealed reality of mind and being?   What this would mean is that all of the enigmas of knowing one's self, losing the self in this world, and ones search for the Kingdom within, would suddenly be understood from a totally different perspective than it is today.   Even the Lord's Prayer where Jesus teaches his followers to beseech the Lord to bring about the manifestation of the Kingdom (within) -- and why Jesus commanded to seek the Kingdom first as seen in the words: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt. 6:33) -- one would have to conclude that man's present-day dogmatic poverty is so great, that the modern Church has very little in common with the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay.    If one is supposed to seek the Kingdom by losing the false-self of one's carnal nature, in order to permit one's true inner self to manifest, then the whole dogmatic concept of waiting until you physically die to see if you will inherit the promise of going to Glory, would have to be radically re-evaluated in light of countless other original Gospel teachings and concepts that are largely ignored today.   And while on the surface this may sound radical, isn't this exactly what Paul stated when he commanded the congregation of Christians: "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).    But the problem is that modern man does not at all understand this biblical reality, because he lacks the knowledge of his own Cosmology of Mind and Being.   Therefore, he doesn't know that the "...earthly nature" which Paul commands to "Put to death...", is in fact the false-self that man is in this world.   And that the seeker/disciple must come to Know Thyself, by Manifesting their True-Self, while still alive in the physical body-vessel.   And if this is true, then what you are about to read could very well be the most important thing you have ever read in your entire life.   

  Know Thyself: The third saying of the recently discovered Gospel of Thomas states:  "When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."    What is the meaning of the words: "...then you will become known"???  `How can it even be suggested that God does not know us?   Yet, these words were not only intentionally written in this manner -- but they present an important series of foundational facts that few people who claim to know God understand the reality of.   And in assessment of the world's religions that exist today: Regardless of the religion you are affiliated with, the fact that you do not understand the underlying reality that is portrayed in these words, is an indication that you are spiritually flat-lined, and can make little to no progress beyond your present point.  To a degree these same words are repeated in Jesus' statement that should be heeded by every person professing to believe:  "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord!' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the person who does what my Father in heaven wants.  Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name? Didn't we force out demons and do many miracles by the power and authority of your name?' Then I will tell them publicly, 'I've never known you. Get away from me, you evil people.'  (Mat: 7:21-23).    Thus, even if you profess to be a believer who in the name of Jesus has performed miracles, cast out demons, and prophesied in the name of Christ, the Bible warns that unless you fulfill the Will of the Father, that Jesus will state of you that he has "never known you" -- and for many of the same reasons that it can be said that you are "not known by God".    And when it is realized that the Christian Church has totally rejected the original teachings and objectives set forth in the original Gospel accounts --  that what the original disciples professed as Truth has not only been rejected by the Church, but has been condemned as heresy -- and when it is realized that the Church even corrupted the original words spoken to man directly by God to mankind in the Gospels as heresy (see The Ten Words) -- changing them, in order to make the Gospels support Roman Pagan doctrines of belief -- then it can truly be recognized that not only has the Church rejected the Will of the Father -- but to those who profess to believe, and yet they believe the doctrines of Pagan Rome, that the Jesus they call upon has said to them: "Get away from me, you evil people ...I've never known you"    Again, from the Epistles of Paul is this declaration: "But the man who loves God is known by God" (1 Cor 8:3 NIV) -- which indicates that those who fail to do the Will of God, cannot love God, and therefore is not even "known by God".   And since few people can fulfill the words spoken by Jesus -- i.e., "When you come to know yourselves..." -- it also remains true that they are not known in the way that they imagine -- i.e.,  "...then you will become known"

  The Folly Of Man's Religions: When it states in the Gospel of Thomas that only a select group of people who fulfill certain requirements are known by God -- i.e., "...then you will become known" -- the vast majority of believers from the world's religions will with little thought and contemplation attempt to simply dismiss these words without any real understanding of their content and meaning.   Yet, these words are spoken from a Universal perspective, and apply to all people of all religions who have failed to fulfill the Laws in accord with the original objectives of the very purpose of Creation itself.   Thus, the Jews who maintain that they are the chosen people, are not -- the Christians who proclaim they are saved and will go to Glory, are not -- those who call themselves Muslims are not -- the yogis, gurus and monks who promote Krishna Conscious and God-Awareness, are not -- and the New Age who portray themselves as the direct expression of the Collective Consciousness, are not.    And, when properly understood within the true Cosmology of Mind and Being, all these assertions and proclamations can all in fact be categorized within the context of the words: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).

Christianity, which is the source of these words in the Gospel of Thomas that "...then you will become known", will immediately attempt to dismiss what is being portrayed -- attributing them to some Gnostic delusion -- and this they will do to their own spiritual demise.   But since the mainstream of Christians don't even know or understand even the meaning of the word Gnosis, then it is the epitome of their folly when they condemn what they possess absolutely no understanding of.   Much of the New Age believe in the Collective Consciousness -- and they therefore conclude that they, being a direct expression of God, are in fact God manifest in the physical.    New Thought Churches believe that when they meditate, they are listening to God -- and this too is the product of their ignorance with respect to the Cosmology of Mind that is expressed in the above words of the Gospel of Thomas.   Thus, when understood within the context of the revelation, it is a harsh and needless reality that these words are as true today, as when they were originally spoken -- i.e., the "...people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6 NKJ).   If it is indeed true that Jesus warned his disciples and followers that only "when you come to know yourselves, then you will become known...", then it is also true that "...Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ).    And if we dismiss the source as being drawn from a writing that is not approved by the Church -- alleged to be Gnostic (Spiritual Knowledge) -- then to our own dilemma we can see the same exact teaching and ignored reality portrayed in an Epistle of Paul where he warns: "But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?" (Gal 4:9 NKJ).   Thus the looming question:  HOW CAN WE NOT BE KNOWN BY GOD???   To their own demise the congregation of Christians have simply dismissed these words as if they had no real meaning -- or were not intentionally stated.

Having demonstrated the relevance between the same exact reality presented in both the Gospel of Thomas, and Paul's Epistle to the Galatians, it is important to be cognizant of the very opening statement in Thomas: "These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.  And he said, Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death.  Jesus said, Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."    What most people who read these words fail to understand is the fact that, what is presented in the opening statement of Thomas is not a series of secret teachings in the words of man that one must learn and be taught the meaning of in order to enter into the Life that Jesus revealed to mankind -- but rather, the true meaning of not only the Gospel of Thomas, but of all Gospels and scriptures, cannot be known, perceived, understood and comprehended, without Personally Experiencing the Inner Kingdom (Lk 17:20-21) by walking in TheWay (see http://GateOfEden.com ).    To find the true meaning of the sayings of Thomas, the seeker must through their own spiritual experiences, begin to draw near to the Inner Kingdom.    From a biblical Christian perspective, what this means is that only those who separate themselves from the temporal and cultural thinking, mindset and lifestyle of this world -- do as Jesus commanded, and pick up their own cross and follow in TheWay -- will become Known By God by entering through the "narrow way" within, into the Kingdom.   All the other people will remain the lost prodigal sons and daughters who are portrayed as being spiritually dead (see Dead Men Walking), and under the control of what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- which Paul called the god of this world.

In many ways the esoteric context of the words "...whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death", can be likened to presenting facts to a developing fetus while they are still in the womb -- explaining that in an after-birth state, that they must and will discover the wisdom and possess the knowledge portrayed in the enigma of what is being presented.   It is not that someone must teach the meaning of the interpretations -- but rather, that one must grasp the reality that is portrayed through one's experiences on a higher plane.   And since in reality this world is holographically, very much as a mental womb where the mind is nurtured and expanded in the endeavor to bring about the next stage of birth, the disciple/seeker must begin to make provision within one's self, to bring about the experiences that will impart this higher knowledge often portrayed as Divine Manna or Gnosis, by transforming the physical in the endeavor to create within one's self the environment of growth and higher manifestation.   From the perspective of the Torah (Old Testament), this is portrayed as the building of the Final Temple within one's self -- from a Christian perspective, it is the End Times where the Kingdom comes within the mind and being of the disciple/seeker -- and from a Muslim perspective, it is the completion of the Journey by Night to the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca.   

  Always To Wander In Error: A long ignored writing is the Epistle of Peter And James -- and it is ignored largely, because it makes a number of profound statements that all but the very few people who enter in at the "narrow way", will immediately dismiss -- once again, to their own demise.   Speaking of the more spiritual scriptures that were never given into the hands of either the Jews or Gentiles (see Most Sacred Gospels), Peter states to James: "Hear me, brethren and fellow-servants. If we should give the books to all indiscriminately, and they should be corrupted by any daring men, or be perverted by interpretations, as you have heard that some have already done, it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error.   Wherefore it is better that they should be with us, and that we should  communicate them with all the fore-mentioned care to those who wish to live piously, and to save others."

How can this possibly be?   How can it be stated that if these more spiritual scriptures that were never given into the hands of the converts, were to become lost or corrupted, that  "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error.???"   And the answer to the dilemma which is all but ignored by not only the modern Church, but the sincere seekers of all the world's religions, is found in the words of Paul that the people of this world are not even "...known by God."   And why, without the works and the knowledge that Jesus is making reference to, that it can be said that "...'I've never known you" -- even when you have called upon the name of the Lord with your lips, prophesized and performed many miracles in "...the power and authority of [the] name [of Christ].   And while many will reject and attempt to ignore this profound warning, it all goes back to Paul's statement that “…if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know” (1 Cor 8:2 NKJ).   And since most Christians believe that they need not know anything more than the historical Jesus, then they prove the words true even in our own time: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge"!!!

Few people understand the mandate to Know Thyself!   In explanation, lets add the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: "when you come to know yourselves, then you will become known..." -- and quoting at http://BeingOfLight.com : When God, in the words of St. Nazianzen, no longer is an “object of wonder”, but rather an “object of desire” -- and we, desiring to be purified from the defilements of this world, make ourselves fit vessels for the Lord to indwell, the Spirit, according to St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature, and the revelation of this manifest Sacred Knowledge makes “us like God; so that when we have thus become like Himself, God may, to use a bold expression, hold converse with us as Gods, being united to us, and that perhaps to the same extent as He already knows those who are known to Him”. St. Nazianzen then writes that “the Divine Nature then is boundless and hard to understand” by those who are yet carnal and think as natural beings of this world.

Take note of the statement that God "...already knows those who are known to Him”.   Which invokes us to pose the question in light of the foregoing statement in the Gospel of Thomas and that of Paul: "But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?" (Gal 4:9 NKJ).  To even begin to understand why these statements were made -- and more importantly, why they are true -- it is imperative to possess the (1) esoteric knowledge of the Cosmology of one's own self and mind, and why it is written in the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty"; (2) and the reality of the Laws and the two very different Creation accounts in the Book of Genesis (see The Two Creation Accounts In Genesis ); and (3) the higher reality and journey of the soul (or soul-self) that does not incarnate into this world, and exists across the spectrum of many levels and dimensions of being which prompted St. Teresa of Avila to write that "The soul...", writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila). And this reality is explored in great depth in the subheading Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image, which continues into the subheadings that follow that explore the Matrix of mind.

While Creator-God brought forth all souls in the beginning -- and these souls were themselves sparks of the Divine -- i.e., quoting from The Allegorical Fall Of Man: In the beginning all souls existed as sparks of the Divine. In what I portray as the realm of souls, each individual soul would be perceived as a weak flickering light -- like a distant star. Quoting The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is generally attacked by Jewish philosophers, but is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel. It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief. According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.  Thus, the pre-existent soul of man which is portrayed as "..sparks of which form the individual souls..." are in fact the Beings of Light encountered by some in a Near Death Experience -- and it is this Being of Light that is each person's true form and self.   Moreover, in our natural state we are a Being of Light -- and our body-vessel which we inhabit in this world, is merely an allegorical projection of mind and spirit into the image of the body.   That the journey of the soul over the course of many lifetimes was an integral part of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and was removed by the Roman Emperors who ruled over the doctrines of the Church -- is demonstrated conclusively in The Ten Reasons Why The Church Rejects The Teaching On The Pre-Existent Soul.

Man is an embryonic image of their higher soul-self that is projected into this world at conception (see  Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image ) -- and those who come to understand the Cosmology of Mind and begin to Know Thyself, understand that they dwell within the Matrix of the Mind of the Soul.  And in view of the fact that there is nothing but Thought -- and while the Soul that does not incarnate into this world is an original Thought Of Creator-God, the people of this world are in reality a thought generated by their higher soul-self at conception -- then we need to greatly expand our understanding of self.  And while it is not the best example of this reality, in a similar way that a mother knows the child that she birthed and brought forth, the mother does not know the thoughts of their child.   And taking this analogy one step further: Who is your offspring? The child that you brought forth?   Or the thoughts that your child generates as part of his mental development?   Countless mystics and (Mystery) religious traditions have expressed the reality that this world is pure illusion -- i.e., Plato's Cave ( http://DivineStrategery.com#Plato ) -- which parallels what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see http://DivineStrategery.com#OuterDarkness ) -- and as the proverbial ego-self which Jesus taught that you must lose ( “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it.”) -- and this was stated because you are not your true self.   In the parable of The Sower and the Seed, you are the ground within which the embryonic seed of your soul has been inserted (see  Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image ).    And in view of the fact that what Paul portrays as the "natural" mind of man (see Mystery Of The Gospel) is the earth matter (physical body) within which the seed-essence of your soul has been implanted, man in his organic state is not real beyond the limits of this world -- which world is an illusion that is an allusion through which the soul gains experiential knowledge to overcome the Laws and evolve the Light of the soul to Wholeness and Completion.

Therefore, because of his inherent limitations, organic man can't at all comprehend his true higher soul-reality (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   And while it is true that all that exists, exists within the Mind of God -- because organic man can't comprehend the paradoxes of Duality and Opposites -- and thus, he perpetually eats the fruit of the Tree of Duality which brings (spiritual) death -- he is only capable of understanding the existence of a Higher Power which he does not at all understand, and calls God by various names.   All that exists between himself and his ideas of God -- because of the limitations of organic consciousness -- remains a great void in his understanding.   And since most of mankind is ruled over by his lower animal natures -- and is more or less a beast who walks in the form of man -- he is simply incapable of merging the paradoxes of duality together in the higher reality of expanded and evolved consciousness -- his ideas of God remain carnal and undeveloped, as does is very limited knowledge of self.

  The Two Picture/Images Of Self - The Surf/Subject Mindset Of Failure: There are two images of the reality of man -- one is rarely spoken of, and not at all understood.   The culturally common perception of man is that he came into being at birth -- that his mind is empty and he is in need of being taught.   The other image of the reality of man that is rarely ever mentioned or understood, is to some degree expressed in the words of Jean Piaget who stated: “When you teach a child something you take away forever his chance of discovering it for himself.”    Another interesting quote that is not at all understood by those who subscribe to the mind of the child being void and empty philosophy, is that of John Holt in the words: "A gardener does not grow flowers: he tries to give them what he thinks they need and they grow by themselves".   

In the first image of self that is ascribed to by our cultural, religious and philosophical icons, the child's mind is empty -- while in the second image that is rarely ever mentioned or understood, each child is understood to have an innate connection to a Source of Knowledge that greatly exceeds all the avenues of learning available to the child who has undergone the process of being taught in the traditional manner.   And thus, when you teach a child through rote memorization and programming in the manner of our religions and educational systems, you forever alienate the child from even the ability to tap into that Inner Source, and truly begin to learn.    That the (true) self already exists in a knowing and enlightened state of being -- and that the primary objective of life is to connect and manifest our true self -- is the paramount reality in the words of Jesus as set forth in the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".  

The Latin meaning of the word Education is to "draw out from within" -- which of course is predicated upon an Inner Source of Knowledge and Being -- implying developing the individual's potential by drawing out what is already there and existing beneath the surface.   But herein lies the problem as seen in the fact that this inner Source does not exist in the void of our gravely flawed modern cultural understanding.    But what it also means is that what we put forth as education today, is in fact opposed to True Education -- mainly because the philosophical foundational paradigm of self in in conflict and in reverse of our true reality.   And thus, what we call education is not only the rote programming of pseudo-education -- but has the effect of totally alienating the child and person from the true learning experience.

The surf/subject mindset is that framework of thinking when you perceive yourself as being in subordinate-dominion to a higher ruling authority.   In those nations that were ruled by what can be portrayed as a royal family, each commoner is born into a lesser place within the society, and can never arise to be the ultimate leader.   Unlike the United States where young children are told that they can grow up to be the President, in a nation ruled by a royal family, the common people are always subjects.   Worse yet is the Caste system -- i.e., quoting the Wikipedia: "Caste is an elaborate and complex social system that combines some or all elements of endogamy, hereditary transmission of occupation, social class, social identity, hierarchy, exclusion and power.  Haviland defines caste as a closed form of social stratification in which membership is determined by birth and remains fixed for life; castes are also endogamous and offsprings are automatically members of their parent's caste."  Judaism is a type of royal family caste system in that the Jews consider themselves the "chosen people".    Christianity is another type of royal family in that in accord with their Church dogma, their God has only one son -- and all other people must dwell in subjection to the Trinitarian Royal Family.   And while Christians may consider themselves the adopted family of God, it remains true that they are not of the Royal Bloodline of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

People who are of the subject/surf mindset, can't even imagine themselves as being of the same substance as the Royal Family.   Moreover, in the prevalent Marxist/Socialist mindset where the government is the authority and womb to tomb caretaker of the common people, the reality that (1) not only is each person's true self of a higher order than the pseudo-authorities who they embrace as leaders and rulers; and (2) it is often the system itself that inhibits the individual from developing, and coming into their own.   Contrary to the Marxist/Socialist paradigm of ideology, each person's true self possesses infinitely greater knowledge than the cultural pseudo-authorities and rulers of this world -- and that it is the mind-programming of these pseudo-authorities that actually alienate the child/person from their true higher nature.    But this higher soul-reality remains inconceivable to their surf/subject thinking and mindset.   Yet, as portrayed by Jesus as the lost prodigal son who is under a cloud of forgetfulness and ignorance as manifest in the term the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), only when the individual begins to reject the surf/subject mindset and begins to embrace the Cosmology of Mind portrayed in the second image of self, can one begin to tap into that Inner Source -- which disperses the cloud of amnesic ignorance which is the effect of the "outer darkness" -- permitting the lost prodigal son to re-connect and tap into the Inner Source of his being -- and ultimately man's return to their Heavenly Father.

The parables in the Gospels are recognized to be universal truths pertaining to all people's of the earth.   Each of these parables possess hidden esoteric truths that were presented in enigmatic form, enabling the speaker to state truths that would be immediately rejected by the majority of hearers.   In explanation of this fact with respect to the teachings of Jesus, the Wycliffe Bible Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”

The problem with this statement is that it is only partially correct -- and its error and limitations is the direct product of the authors of the Wycliffe Bible Commentary who built their theology upon the defective paradigm of thought noted in the above.   Since all of mankind equally dwells in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), Jesus taught in parables in order to stir and open the mind of the few who had the potential to be awakened from their deep amnesic type state of sleep.    While the initiates were said to be taught In The House, in not understanding why Jesus did not speak plainly to the people, it was the initiates who questioned this type of teaching -- i.e., when asked by his disciples Jesus explained that: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again..." (Mark 4:11-12 ASV) -- and the term, "...lest haply they should turn again", is stated in reference to the Kingdom that can only be found within themselves that they must be awakened to.   In the parable of the two sons -- better known as the parable of the prodigal son -- the son who had become lost in what is portrayed as the Far Country under the direct control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of that Country, did not need to be taught by those who were themselves under the dominion of the Citizen of the Far Country -- but rather, needed to be reawakened out of his amnesic state of mind which Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), to his former life with his Heavenly Father.    And once reawakened, he was then able to return to the Heavenly Kingdom on his own volition.    And it was for this reason that the historical man Jesus can be rightly portrayed as the first of the prodigal sons to make the return journey -- why in the original Gospel accounts he is portrayed as a true holy man who became the Anointed at his baptism in the Jordan (see TheTenWords.com ) -- and why Jesus said that his disciples were in fact his brothers who were all of the same Heavenly Father, as seen in the words: "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).    That man in his "natural" organic condition of mind has no memory of his more distant past -- which includes a great multitude of previous lifetimes that his soul or soul-self that does not incarnate into the physical body-vessel, lived previously to being born into his present life.  

Like most of the parables -- and the substance of the Gospels teachings themselves -- the modern Church can't at all understand the parable of the prodigal son, because they have built their theology on the philosophical dogma of Roman Emperors and the pagan thinking of those early Christians who portrayed themselves as Orthodox -- who were in opposition to the Spiritual Christians who were portrayed as Gnostic.   But what is the meaning of the word "gnosis"?   When properly understood, Gnosis is the Divine Knowledge that can only be recognized and received by the few who have awakened from their amnesic state of mind portrayed as the "outer darkness" -- or, who have themselves (mentally) escaped the illusions of this world that is portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave, and is portrayed in the alchemical image at the right known as The Escape.    But, when properly understood, it is not so much that this world is a realm of illusions, and far more factually a world of allusions -- the difference being that this world is in and of itself aspects of mind and higher being impressed into the forms of nature.   And that the purpose of the scriptures is not to teach -- but rather, to awaken the amnesic person who is presently dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) which can also be portrayed as the allusions of  Plato's Cave, is why the Gospel portrays Jesus as speaking to the multitude of people exclusively in parables -- which presented universal truths to those capable of being awakened out of their amnesic sleep. 

That this world is a realm of allegorical symbols impressed into the forms of matter, is why it is written: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..." (Gospel of Thomas).   And that organic "natural" man dwells in an amnesic state of mind -- unaware of his true higher soul and spiritual reality -- is why Jesus stated: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".    And while I will revisit each of the above concepts as I explore the Cosmology of Mind in the below, with respect to this second image of self and the innate Source Of Being And Knowledge that exists within each child and person in this world, our modern educational systems and culture is devoid of any useable knowledge of how to access this innate Source that exists within each individual.  

"Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own"

(John 7:17)
 

  Organic Man - Ruled Over By His Earthly Animal Nature: In accord with the original Gospel teachings of Jesus and TheWay, our birth into this life is the first phase of birth -- i.e., the initial stage of birth that presents us with the opportunity to bring about the next subsequent stages of birth, and enter into the Promise of a Higher Life.   The second century Christian elder/bishop Valentinus who himself had been instructed by teachers and elders who had themselves been taught directly by the disciples, stated that faith-based Christians who did not strive to travail in TheWay -- and therefore failed to use the opportunity of their physical birth to bring about the next and subsequent stages of birth -- could not inherit the Gospel Promise of entering into Life.   Was he wrong?  Before the modern Christian can even begin to answer this question, there is an important reality that was understood by those in the first and second centuries, that believers today know absolutely nothing about.

The leaders of the Jews were condemned by Jesus, because they had thrown away what Jesus called the Key of Knowledge -- and were therefore counterfeit leaders and teachers who were totally ignorant of the threefold process of birth that each person must undergo.   This fact is presented in the words of Jesus to Nicodemus: "...Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'  The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.  Nicodemus answered and said to Him, How can these things be?  Jesus answered and said to him, Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?  Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.  If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:1-12 NKJ).   These words were said to Nicodemus, because as a religious leader, Nicodemus was obligated to convey to the people the absolute need to bring about the next stages of birth within themselves.    The portrayal in Jesus' words of "We" -- i.e., "...We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness" -- is stated in the plural, because this knowledge is true with respect to anyone who understands the Laws and the esoteric meaning of the scriptures, and is able to bring about the next stages of birth.   And while our entrance into this world when we emerged our of our mother's womb presented to us the opportunity to achieve the subsequent stages of birth and enter into Life, unless we take advantage of the opportunity that has been presented to us, we will be doomed to failure.  

Once it is recognized that according to Jesus and the Gospel teachings, we are presently in the process of striving to achieve the next stage of birth -- and that when we emerged out of the womb of our physical mother, we entered into the womb of mother-earth in order to enter into an environment where the next stage of birth can be brought about -- and our presence in this world as male or female, must be understood in accord with the holographic pattern, as the next level of Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm .   And while our first stage of birth was of the physical which formed our body, we are presently in the process of bringing about the second stage of birth which is that of mind -- prior to the even less understood third stage of spiritual birth.   But what this also means is that we presently exist at greatly varying stages of what must be portrayed as that of cosmic-fetal development -- and we have yet to achieve our potential that will be manifest in us when the subsequent stages of birth have been achieved.   The Gospel of Thomas makes reference to the fact that as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm we presently exist in an undeveloped and divided state that must be brought into a condition of Oneness -- and then evolve through the levels of development -- in order to bring about the next stage of birth.   Which means that we must recognize the reality that there are people who walk the face of the earth in a primary and undeveloped condition of mind.   And in the same way that a divided ovum and sperm are very different than the united embryo, fetus, infant and adult that their union has the potential to create, these same differences between people who exist at greatly varying stages of development towards achieving the next stage of birth must be recognized and understood. 

In the same way that a sperm and ovum released into the womb of a woman must become ONE and UNITED to form the embryo that evolved into our present body, this same uniting of male and female opposites is presented to us in Gospel of Thomas saying 22 when Jesus is asked about how the Kingdom is entered, and he replies: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom." (see The Unwanted Truth That Makes Men Free).  And having emerged from the womb of our mother and entered the womb of mother-earth as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm , our development of mind and spirit is contingent upon our fulfillment of this above saying in the Gospel of Thomas.   And if the words attributed to Jesus in the foregoing is true -- and each person must bring about the conditions within themselves presented in these teachings -- then it can easily be demonstrated that modern Christians have little in common with the Original Gospel teachings of TheWay.   And what is truly revealing is the fact that the same basic message of the above that would greatly confuse modern Christians, was also contained in  The Second Epistle of Clement where Clement writes to the first-century Christian congregations: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   What this means is that this important teaching that was removed from our present day Gospels ( http://BibleCorruption.com ), was in response to a person asking Jesus about the promised coming of the Kingdom.   And while a large segment of the modern Church are looking for the Kingdom to come upon the earth -- regardless of the fact that when asked, Jesus said the Kingdom would never come upon the earth outwardly -- but rather, can only come within the seeker/disciples own mind and being.   And the fact that Clement could repeat this teaching to the congregations he was writing to, and these congregations would understand the teaching in question, demonstrates the great spiritual divide that exists between modern dogma and the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   In fact, if this teaching was preached from one of the pulpits of the modern Church, the parishioners would be absolutely clueless as to its meaning and significance.   Further, where many modern Christians have reduced and redefined the process of second-birth to the formality of words spoken in a prayer, Jesus taught that those who achieve the next stage of birth are able to gain entrance into the Kingdom -- which Kingdom comes within them in the fulfillment of the Gospel Promise.   Thus, the clergy and teachers of modern Christendom have more in common with the spiritually disenfranchised blind leaders of the Pharisees, than the first and second century Christians who understood this ultra-important teaching contained in both a suppressed Gospel and an Epistle.  

In analysis, the above teaching of Jesus to Nicodemus is important to understand where he stated:  "...If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?"  Which provokes the question: Why does organic man not only have great difficulty in understanding what is being portrayed by Jesus as "earthly things"?   And why would "heavenly things" be virtually impossible for them to understand?  And when Nicodemus questioned what was being stated to him, Jesus replied: "You are a respected Jewish teacher, and yet you don't understand these things?"   In view of the fact that Nicodemus was acknowledged to be a teacher among the Jews, Jesus could have very well phrased his statement: How can you not first remove the beam from your own eyes, before attempting to remove the splinters from the eyes of your brothers?   And the fact that Nicodemus and the leaders of the Jews failed to apply the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge and gain entrance into the Kingdom (see The Fatal Error Of The Church http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#third ), and learn how a true teacher or guide teaches others how to bring the subsequent stages of birth about in their lives.

In light of the above, the question must be asked: What exactly is that level of consciousness that is portrayed in the above as a primary and undeveloped human condition of mind?  When we use the the term holographic pattern, what this means is that what is true on one level, is also true on all subsequent levels.   And in understanding the physical as a holographic pattern that exists at all levels of man's development -- we must pose the questions: Is the comparative consciousness of a sperm and ovum different than that of an embryo?  Different than that of what can be portrayed as a cosmic-fetus ?   A cosmic-newborn?  A cosmic-toddler?  A cosmic-adolescence?  And a fully formed adult?   Because we fail to understand the second and subsequent stages of birth, our language has no terms that in any manner define these subsequent stages of mental and spiritual development which takes place within the spectrum of achieving the next stage and stages of birth.   While the defining terms embryo, fetus, new-born, adolescence and adult possesses great meaning with respect to stages of expected physical development, none of these age-apparent terms exist within the spectrum of the next stage of birth.   Which provokes the question: When Jesus said that his disciples were his brothers -- and that they "...will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father" (John 14:12) -- what he was making reference to was not a faith-based believer who was the equivalent of a spiritual-fetus or infant -- but rather, those who had evolved through the stages of subsequent birth and had fully entered the Kingdom of Man.   Which raises the question: Are all people part of the Kingdom of Man who have yet to achieve the necessary maturity and subsequent stage of birth that is merely the potential of the life he is presently living?   And if the potential is not achieved, then how are those people who failed to achieve the potential of the life they are presently living defined? 

Once again we must pose the question as to what is the level of consciousness of those who can be portrayed as a cosmic ovum and sperm?   A reality that modern Christians are not even prepared to come to terms with is presented in the statement by one of the earliest of Christian writers named Justin Martyr where he makes reference to the doctrine of transmutation -- i.e.,  the embodiment of a person in the body of a beast which is portrayed as punishment for the misdeeds of a previous life -- when he (Justin) answers the question of Trypho, the Jew, and writes: "And what do those suffer who are judged to be unworthy of this spectacle? said he. They are imprisoned in the bodies of certain wild beasts, and this is their punishment" (Dialogue of Justin With Trypho, a Jew).     Which provokes the question:  Is this really a teaching of Jesus and the original Ebionite Nazirene Christians?   Where could such a thought have originated?  If the Gospels had not been corrupted, Christians would have access to the teaching which has been preserved in the 88th chapter of The Gospel Of The Nazirenes where Jesus states: "Love you one another and all the creatures of God, Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man. Are they men or women in the image of God whose ways of violence, of oppression and wrong, who choose a lie rather than the truth? No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Israel, and being of Israel they are children of God, And for this cause came I into the world, and for this I have suffered at the hands of sinners."    Going even one step further the Church Father Origen explains that: "By some inclination toward evil, certain spirit souls come into bodies, first of men; then, due to their association with the irrational passions after the allotted span of human life, they are changed into beasts, from which they sink to the level of plants. From this condition they rise again through the same stages and are restored to their heavenly place" (Origen, On First Principles, B. W. Butterworth, translator).   What is being said is that while man is of the fourth kingdom -- i.e. with the mineral, vegetable and animal below him in the first three kingdoms of Nature -- the Soul's birth in the physical body presents to that Soul the opportunity to become of the Fourth Kingdom which we associate with the Kingdom of Man.   And what the soul-generated personality achieves in this life, will determine whether that person is able to achieve the necessary subsequent stages of birth.  

A most important reality is presented in the above quotation that has perpetually confused the modern Bible reader -- i.e.,  "No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Israel, and being of Israel they are children of God..."   This verse explains and supports the statement: "These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the  house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand’" (Matt 10:5-7) -- and again Jesus said: He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt 15:24).   Why was Jesus sent ONLY to the children of the House of Israel?   Because only those who can be portrayed as Spiritual Israel -- who have themselves been nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life and are in the process of achieving the next stage of birth -- have attained the necessary level of Completion within themselves -- and are therefore  able to receive the Whole of the Gospel Teachings directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God who was called The True Prophet http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TrueProphet .   When rightly understood, the leaders of the Jews were condemned by Jesus, because they were the personification of counterfeit Israel who were portrayed as blind guides -- because having received the Royal Law of the Most High, they observe it outwardly in ritual and tradition.   Only Spiritual Israel is no longer controlled by their their lower animal nature -- and have either achieved or are in the process of achieving the next stage of birth into the Kingdom of Man.   If, as stated in the above, there are beasts who walk in the form of man -- and exist at varying levels in the process of achieving the next stage of birth that would make them of the fourth kingdom of man -- then humanity exists at greatly varying levels between walking the earth as a beast in the forum of man, and actually achieving the next stage of birth that would manifest them in the fullness of the fourth kingdom.  Further, only those who are portrayed as the Spiritual House of Israel, are able to enter through the "narrow gate" within them, into the Kingdom, and learn in the presence of the Logos/Son of God.

The argument will be made that there is a series of verses in the Gospels that allegedly repute the above statement that Jesus could only come to those who were of the House of Israel --  and they will counter with what is portrayed as The Great Commission which is at Matthew 28:19-20.  But the problem is that The Great Commission has long been proven to be an interpolation and corruption added by the later fourth century Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com#TheGreatCommission ).   But even more important is the fact that between the actual verses which confirm the teaching that Jesus could only come to those who are portrayed as the House of Israel -- and the fact that The Great Commission has long been proven to be a fraud -- confirms the statement of the Apostle Peter as found in the Homilies of his disciple Clement (see The Two Princes).  Speaking of Simon Magus in the Clementine writings, the Apostle Peter states: "He is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God, so that he has been able to involve you in diseases; but by these very diseases, which have been permitted to come upon you by the good providence of God, you, seeking and finding him who is able to cure, have been compelled to submit to the will of God on the occasion of the cure of the body, and to think of believing, in order that in this way you may have your souls as well as your bodies in a healthy state."  And we can observe Jesus making this exact statement when he said to the person he had healed: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   Which provokes the question: How does sin cause "..a worse thing come unto" a person?  What is the causal factor that initiates what is portrayed as a "worse thing" that is caused by a person's sin?  

This reality is explained in the Homilies of Clement where the Apostle Peter then explains about the Two Princes or Powers of the Left and Right Hands of God: "For thus from the beginning was a law laid by God, the Creator of all things, on each of the two princes, him of the right hand and him of the left, that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them. As, then, when you partook of meat offered to idols, you became servants to the prince of evil, in like manner, if you cease from these things, and flee for refuge to God through the good Prince of His right hand, honoring Him without sacrifices, by doing whatsoever He wills, know of a truth that not only will your bodies be healed, but your souls also will become healthy. For He only, destroying with His left hand, can quicken with His right; He only can both smite and raise the fallen."    And again Peter explains: "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right band, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."

As stated in the Bible: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   Which means that each person inherits the fruit of their own actions -- as set forth where the Natural Laws of Creation are explored as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#LivingBioFeedback .  Which means that those who seek to live under the domain of the GOOD, are able to be nourished and assisted by the Good Prince on the Right Hand of God.   While those who do evil, and are of the principle power of this world, dwell under the domain of the Left Hand -- which is why Jesus warned the man who he made whole to  "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee".   Which means that -- in the manner of a bio-feedback organism -- it is the Natural Laws of Creation that monitors and responds to our actions.   Why?   When our bodies were being formed in our mothers womb, we developed in accord with a genetic pattern that was functioning in accord with the Natural Laws.   And, when we emerged out of our mothers womb, we entered this world which can be holographically understood as the womb of mother-earth -- and in the same way that the Natural Laws brought us to the point of physical birth, the Natural Laws of mother-earth are the means by which our minds develop to enable us to enter the kingdom of man.   That Jesus taught the necessity of still subsequent stages of birth, conveys to us that upon entering the womb of mother-earth, the Forces and Laws of Creation will work upon us to bring this subsequent stage and stages of birth about.    And it is these Laws of Creation that intimately monitor our progress of which Jesus warned the person to "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee".  

What the Gospels are confirming is that both the Prince of the Right Hand and the Holy Spirit can only come to those who can be portrayed as being of the House of Israel -- i.e., those who keep the Commandments and travail in TheWay -- and of whom it can be stated:  "No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Israel, and being of Israel they are children of God..."    Then again, didn't Jesus warned: "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" (Matt 7:21-23 NKJ).   Why didn't Jesus know them?   Because the Prince of the Right Hand cannot intervene in the life of those who dwell under the domain of the Prince of the Left Hand.  

Those who call upon the Name of God with their lips, and fail to keep the Commandments, are ruled over by the Prince of the Left Hand.  And even those who prophesied in the name of the Prince of the Right Hand.   And those who cast out demons.   And performed many works and wonders in the Name of the Lord.  The Prince of the Right Hand proclaims: "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'"    And sadly, in the same way the Jews permitted themselves to become spiritually disenfranchised, the same prediction was made about the Christians -- i.e. Paul warned: “let no man beguile you in any wise: for (it will not be,) except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God” (2 Thes 2:3-4 ASV).   What the Apostle is herein very clearly predicting is that there would come a time when the god of the Christian Church will be a false god.   Historically speaking, it has been almost universally recognized that the period in time that the Apostle could have been referring to was in the fourth century when the church made a covenant with the Roman Emperor Constantine.   With regard to this falling away, the Adam Clark Commentary writes of this passage of Paul's Epistle: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation. But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).   Or, as stated by John Wesley, Paul was portraying "...that fatal period when the Emperor Constantine called himself a Christian; From this time onward - the Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ than the heathens...." (Wesley's Works, vol 7, Sermon 89, pp. 26-27). 

If the question is posed: What is the determining factor with respect to the people and their leaders who dwell under the domain of the Right Hand of God?   Those who dwell on the Right seek Truth over dogma and man-made doctrines.   They live their lives in accord with that Truth.   Jesus taught that only those who dwell under the domain of the Right Hand are able to make progress toward achieving the next and subsequent stages of birth.  

Holographically, we evolve through a series of births by first emerging out of the womb of our physical mother, whereby we then enter the womb of mother-earth in order to continue our development.   What this means is that unless the person achieves the next level of soul-birth (see Cosmic Ovum And Sperm), that they remain ruled over by their lower animal nature which is embodied in the consciousness of the body-vessel.    Therefore, while they physically appear to be human, they are in fact the consciousness of a beast that walks in the form of man or woman.    And this reality is expressed in the meaning of the Greek text of Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians (2:14) where Paul states that the "natural" organic man cannot comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom -- i.e., where the Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary writes with respect to the meaning of the word in the original Greek language: "natural man—literally, 'a man of animal soul'."  Further,  the Treasury Of Scriptural Knowledge for the ignored and profound statement at 1 Cor 2:14 which reads (quoting Paul): "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."  The Commentary then provides the interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man:. [Psuchikos,] the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for [psuche] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the [nous] understanding, or [pneuma,] the spirit. And this is not only true -- but is is a fact of life that all mystics and enlightened souls must deal with when interacting with organic man.   Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   Stating to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he portrayed as having received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary "traditions" of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).   

Mankind is of the Fourth Kingdom -- i.e., mineral, vegetable, animal and mankind-- and his lower nature and body consciousness is comprised and immersed in the three lower kingdoms beneath mankind who is of the fourth kingdom.   That organic man in what Paul portrays as a "natural" condition of mind is ruled over by man's lower natures, is why in his Epistles Paul commanded to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV) -- further warning that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   Yet, because important teachings were removed from the Gospels, and modern man does not at all understand the reality of his lower animal nature, he fails to understand that he can very well be portrayed as being of an animal consciousness who is walking the earth in the outward form of man -- i.e., the fourth kingdom of man, being ruled over by the lower three that comprise his lower nature manifest in the consciousness of his physical body.    Therefore, what Paul warned with respect to comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom is that “But the natural man [who is still of an animal-soul] does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually received (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).   Therefore, the baptized and confirmed believers who Paul had personally taught were incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel, because they were yet too immature to comprehend man's higher spiritual reality -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   And this fact of reality remains true unto this very day.    Without doing as Paul commanded with respect to the transformation of the lower animal-consciousness of the body, it will remain impossible to perceive and comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the Gospels.   And it will make no difference if you study the scriptures in a university or seminary -- in the same way that Paul himself could not convey to those he personally taught the spiritual meaning of the Gospels, neither can any man teach this meaning without the seeker/student undergoing the process of transforming the "natural animal-soul" consciousness of the physical.

Many religions teach that man can and is thrown into an animal body -- and like all such doctrines, while there is a degree of truth to these statements, because of the distortion of human consciousness, organic man does not understand what is being presented.   Quoting from Reincarnation In Islam and the writings of the Sufi Mystic Hazrat: "I died as a mineral and became a plant, I died as plant and rose to animal, I died as animal and I was Man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?" This belief is present in Hinduism, as well as Jewish Mysticism -- i.e., quoting the Kabbalah Center: "There are four levels in which a soul can reside: human, animal, vegetable, or mineral. If you have selfish desire in this life, in the next life you will have to deal with being captured in a stone (mineral), vegetable, or animal. It’s not a punishment. It’s because you didn’t know what to do with the desire to receive as a human. So, you are given a form (like, mineral, vegetable, or animal), in which your desire to receive is lower than a human."  Continuing from a Jewish perspective quoting The Kosher Torah: "Alas, in our many sins, just as souls can evolve upward in Kedusha (holiness) so can they descend into tumah (uncleanness). When this occurs, HaShem can punish a human soul by incarnating it into a non-human form. Indeed, a human soul can incarnate into anything that HaShem has created. HaShem has placed fallen human souls into animals of all kinds, into plants and even into rocks, water, sand and dirt. Each of these places is to act as a prison for the soul, each in accordance to the sins it performed. The fallen soul is destined by Divine edict to stay trapped in its non-human form with all its memories of being human for a specified amount of time. It is said that this form of punishment is most hard to bear and the most painful punishment of all."     

Perhaps the reality of an animal consciousness that rules over the body can best be comprehended by understanding the teachings of the Essenes on the subject.   In his Antiquity of the Jews, the Jewish historian Josephus, who had lived among the Essenes, was a contemporary of the man Jesus, and became an Ebionite, stated that the Essenes: “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again.  For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”.   The fact that the soul is attracted to the body in which it will inhabit, is because the nature of the body previously existed, and was an integral part of the soul spanning the Seven Kingdoms of Creation.  The statement that the soul becomes "...united to their bodies as to prisons", is made on the basis that the condition and consciousness of the body is in accord with the condition the soul left the body in its previous life.   Thus, the above can be understood within the context of Paul's statement that "If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body" (1 Cor 15:44) -- with the "natural body" being comprised of the lower three kingdoms that is ruled over by our lower (animal) nature.   And herein lies the problem that modern man is not at all prepared to both comprehend and even deal with -- i.e., we are returned or reunited with our lower animal nature from life to life to life to life -- until the lower nature is transformed, so it can provide a proper foundational environment for our higher soul and spiritual natures to manifest.   Thus, it is not that the soul is forced to incarnate as a beast -- but rather, the soul is returned back to the consciousness of it's lower nature -- which lower nature will greatly impact the consciousness of the person throughout the life they will live.  Will that life be as a prison?   Or will the body be the environment of a Living Temple?   This will be determined by the level of refinement we have accomplished from life to life.

When Paul commanded the Christians who he had himself taught the Gospel to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV) -- he wrote these words because the Christians he taught HAD A LOWER EARTHLY NATURE that would not only control their thinking and ability to live in accord with the Gospel teachings, but would inhibit their ability to even learn and advance beyond the "animal-soul" level of consciousness which would make it impossible to receive the promise of the Gospel teachings.   And with respect to the promise of salvation as set forth in the Gospel, Paul further warned that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   Why?   Because so long as the person remains in a state where they are controlled by their lower animal nature -- incapable of advancing beyond what Paul portrayed as "natural" organic man -- then these people regardless of the fact that they may call themselves Christians, will be incapable of transforming the lower (animal) nature, bringing about the next stage of birth , and entering into Life in accord with the Promise of the Gospel.

Many of the Indigenous and Ancient religions and teachings were more in tune with man's physical body, and they understood that man has a lower animal nature that his soul re-inherits from life to life.   Every type of mythology is ripe with images of half-man and half-animal.   Many Indigenous peoples from around the world learned and developed the ability to directly communicate with their lower animal nature, and release it from the body to go on missions.   At Legends Of America it is stated that: "Native beliefs further explain that a totem animal is one that is with you for life, both in the physical and spiritual world. Though people may identify with different animal guides throughout their lifetimes, it is this one totem animal that acts as the main guardian spirit.  With this one animal a connection is shared, either through interest in the animal, characteristics, dreams, or other interaction."     The Soul has an animal nature -- and one of the primary objectives of life is to refine our animal nature, in order to create the necessary environment within us that will permit our higher Soul and Spiritual Natures to manifest in the body.   From life to life each soul-personality picks up where they left off, and continues with the process of refining the lower nature.  

The Soul of a person who has worked to refine their lower animal nature over the course of many lives, will very quickly be able to evolve their thinking and understanding to comprehend higher realities that will remain virtually impossible for most people to comprehend.   Which is why different people are born with greatly varying capacities to both learn and embrace higher understanding with respect to man's Soul and Spiritual Natures.   But herein lies one of the major problems -- i.e., the ability of a person to bring about the necessary expansion and deepening of mind and manifest higher consciousness, will be totally dependent upon that Soul's achievements over the course of the lives that Soul has lived.  In hte words of the Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis see The Biblical Foundation Mindset http://ChristianReincarnation.org#BiblicalFoundationalMindset ).  And since each of us is the person we are at the present, because of the accomplishments of our Soul in those lives preceding the present, equality in advancement and mental expansion is impossible.   And thus, the great Truth of Origen's words with respect to the Conditions that each of us is born into this world: “For God the Creator makes a certain vessel unto honor, and other vessels to dishonor; but that vessel which has cleansed itself from all impurity He makes a vessel unto honor, while that which has stained itself with the filth of vice He makes a vessel unto dishonor. The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor. And if the assertion appear correct, as it certainly is, and in harmony with all piety, that it is due to previous causes that every vessel be prepared by God either to honor or to dishonor, it does not appear absurd that, in discussing remoter causes in the same order, and in the same method, we should come to the same conclusion respecting the nature of souls, and (believe) that this was the reason why Jacob was beloved before he was born into this world, and Esau hated, while he still was contained in the womb of his mother” (see The Early Church On Predestination http://ChristianReincarnation.org#predestination ).

The ability of a person's mind to overcome the barrier imposed upon us by human limitations -- evolving the mind beyond the "animal-soul" level of Consciousness -- is solely dependent upon the refinement and domestication of our lower animal nature.   And herein lies the problem: While Indigenous cultures that are more in harmony with the Laws and Forces of the Earth are far more knowledgeable with respect to man's lower animal nature, our modern plastic politically correct culture is absolutely clueless as to this human reality that is man's greatest controlling and restraining factor.  And while the elders of Original Christianity understood these ultra-important controlling factors and limitations, our present crop of religious leaders have no idea as to why modern believers can't live in accord with the Gospel Teachings and Principles.   Those who comprehend what can be called the Cosmology of Mind and Being understand that man has a Higher Soul-Self that is virtually an All-Knowing Being of Light -- and from a physical perspective, man's ability to learn, evolve and to possess higher knowledge, is totally dependent upon the refinement of his lower animal nature and the Wholeness of his Being.   And while this refinement was one of the primary teachings of the Original Gospel-based Christianity, it remains virtually absent in our modern Churches that claim to represent the teachings of Jesus.   To the degree that when the religious requirements of first and second century Christianity is pointed out in the teachings set forth in the New Covenant Sacraments (see http://Sacraments.Nazirene.org ), the modern faith-based Christian rejects these Original Requirements as being "impossible" to keep and fulfill.   And because of the prevailing ignorance of Self, Soul and Spirit, they are correct -- i.e., beasts who walk in the form of man are incapable of keeping the Original Gospel Requirements -- and are incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the Higher Reality of the Soul. 

Thus, the truth with respect to the human condition is preserved in the above words: "Love you one another and all the creatures of God, Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man. Are they men or women in the image of God whose ways of violence, of oppression and wrong, who choose a lie rather than the truth? No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Israel, and being of Israel they are children of God..." -- and the words: "Therefore, I teach you only those laws which you can understand, that you may become men, and follow the seven laws of the Son of Man..." -- which means that until the next stage of birth is achieved, the people's of the earth are striving and in the process of bringing about the stage of birth that will enable them to achieve the fourth kingdom of man.  And until that next stage is achieved, they will remain beasts who walk in the form of man.   While it is true that a lion, a tiger or a bear cannot become a man, it is also true that the consciousness of a lion or a tiger or a bear can evolve and bring about the next stage of birth while walking in the body of man.   But in order for this transformation of the lower nature to be brought about, it is necessary for the person to be reared and developed in an environment that enables the next stage of birth to be brought about.  

The Problem: Because of our profound ignorance of Self, our children are being born into a spiritually disenfranchised culture that enflames the animal-passions of man's lower nature, and alienates him from his Higher Soul Nature that he knows virtually nothing about.   And if ever we wanted an example of the lost prodigal son squandering away his inheritance of things of no substance and meaning, there could be no finer example of man's folly than our modern plastic culture and spiritually disenfranchised society than the manner in which we are rearing our children today.   Insuring their spiritual demise and failure.   If ever a teaching was valid in the words: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" -- our modern plastic culture is the embodiment of intellectual poverty and abject spiritual ignorance.   In virtually every aspect of our modern cultural lives we ignore the essential Gospel teachings of the Sermon on the Mount (see The Esoteric Sermon On The Mount) -- and in our carnal mindset and lifestyle that promotes our lower animal passions and appetites, we totally alienate both ourselves and our children from our True-Self.   Leaving ourselves mentally barren in a state of intellectual poverty and spiritually impotent.

The Vicious Circle Of Self-Ignorance: Jesus therefore said to those of the Jews who had now believed in Him, "As for you, if you hold fast to my teaching, then you are truly my disciples; and you shall know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free" (John 8:31-32).   Why was this said?   What is the meaning of the teachings?   It doesn't say that if you believe in the man Jesus you will know the Truth.   It says that if you "hold fast" to the teachings, "...you will know the Truth that sets men free".  The term "hold fast" is defined as "To bear down, grit it out, stay the course" -- meaning, to live in strict accord with the teachings.   Why?  The Gospel teachings represent the minimum level of thinking and lifestyle necessary to begin to evolve the lower animal nature -- to merge together the outer male/female columns of the Tree of Duality within each persons own mind (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ) -- and create within the body and mind of the seeker the necessary environment for the Heavenly Kingdom to merge with the Earthly, initiating the next stage of Birth, instituting what has been traditionally portrayed as Armageddon or the End Times within the body and mind of the seeker/disciple of TheWay who is faithful to the Gospel teachings. 

Organic man has a "natural" limitation that inhibits his development beyond a certain level that Paul correctly portrayed as an "animal-soul" level of Consciousness.   In order to move beyond that very limited level of both mental and human development, certain Laws and Building Blocks must be observed and embraced.   In our present culture the secularized public school system destroys the child's opportunity to fulfill the Gospel Promise of entering into Life.   So does the broken marriages and the lack of moral standards that is actively promoted by our modern media -- and is even present in our churches and institutions.   There is an important reason why the scriptures set forth sexual and moral standards (see Sexual Immorality - Why Is It Condemned In The Scriptures?).   Our modern culture does not in any manner understand the important differences between men and women (see Academia And The Feminist Cultural War On Women http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AcademiaWarOnWomen ).   And our religious institutions have become so corrupted, that they are totally clueless as to how the life-giving fruit of the Tree of Life is to be eaten (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).     

The problem of not being able to comprehend the whole reality of life, is typical of human three-dimensional thinking (see Why Truth Can't Exist In This World).   The above doctrinal statements drawn from the Jewish mysticism and the teachings of Kabbalah, are based upon fragments of truth that is not fully understood by man in his organic condition of mind.   To the degree that while it is not true in the manner that this reality is being envisioned by people who are lacking an elevated comprehension, it is true from a higher reality that the vast majority of mankind would not be able to comprehend what is being presented.   Yet, because this and many other fragments of truth are ultra-important for modern man to comprehend if he is to step up upon a plateau of greater understanding of Self and the Life he is presently living, I will explore this subject in great depth in the below, after I have covered the necessary preliminary Cosmology of Mind and Being required to understand man's true reality.  

In the above where in the Epistle of Peter and James it declares that if the esoteric knowledge that could only be imparted to spiritually mature Christians should become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error", one of the primary reasons is seen in the fact that if a man is ignorant of the reality of his animal nature, that he will be ruled by the beast of the lower kingdoms that make up his body and organic consciousness.   There are Seven Kingdoms of Nature -- and man is of the Fourth Kingdom.   Beneath him lies the three earthly kingdoms, and above him is the three heavenly kingdoms.   In the parable of the Sower and the Seed, the condition of the ground is representative of the consciousness and condition of the body with respect to the objective of sacrificing the lower animal kingdoms in order to bring about the  Final Temple within the body and mind of the seeker.    Therefore, it is not that the soul incarnates as a beast -- but rather, that the soul-seed essence remains ruled over by the consciousness of the beast as realized as the reality of the body-vessel which is comprised of the consciousness and elements of the lower three earthly kingdoms.    And it is ignorance of this fact that caused the early Christian (Gnostic) Valentinus to confirm what Jesus stated with respect to what is portrayed as only the very few who succeed -- i.e., "...narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV) -- Valentinus stating that the vast majority of people have no real continuance beyond the grave, that most seekers will fail, and only a few will overcome and succeed.    That Jesus is portrayed as the Savor, is because he fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the pattern for all others to embrace and follow in TheWay.   If, therefore, you don't follow the pattern, then you can't be counted as a believer.  

What the biblical authors portray as "natural" man (see Mystery Of The Gospel) -- which level of being the early Christian Valentinus portrayed as Hylics -- which reality of being I often use the term organic man to portray -- is very much the product of nature -- and it is this lesser level of humanity that is portrayed above in the Gospel of the Nazirenes as beast-men who walk in the form of man.  And what is not understood by modern man is the fact that if mankind is the fourth-kingdom, then he possesses within himself and his being the lower three kingdoms which are earthly -- i.e., mineral, vegetable and animal -- in the words of the Sufi Mystic Rumi: "I died as a mineral and became a plant, I died as plant and rose to animal, I died as animal and I was Man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?"    And without development towards achieving the next stage of birth, that person walks the earth as a beast in the form of man.    The problem is that these lesser kingdoms remain as an integral part of the conscious and foundation upon which that of mankind is manifest in the earth.

If we understand the relationship of beast-man to man -- which can be portrayed from a biblical perspective as the relationship of the Jew to the non-Jew as presented in the Talmud: "G-d created the non-Jew in human form so that the Jew would have to be served by beasts. The non-Jew is consequently an animal in human form, and condemned to serve the Jew day and night" (Talmud, Midrasch Talpiothe).  Rabbi Ovadia Yosef teaches (see Non-Jews Are Donkeys): Yosef further elucidated his ideas about the servitude of gentiles to Jews, asking “why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap; and we will sit like an effendi and eat.”  “That is why gentiles were created.”  The concept of gentiles being infra-human beings or quasi-animals is well-established in Orthodox Judaism.  For example, rabbis affiliated with the Chabad movement, a supremacist but influential Jewish sect, teach openly that at the spiritual level, non-Jews have the status of animals.  Abraham Kook, the religious mentor of the settler movement, was quoted as saying that the difference between a Jew and a gentile was greater and deeper than the difference between humans and animals.  “The difference between a Jewish soul and souls of non-Jews — all of them in all different levels — is greater and deeper than the difference between a human soul and the souls of cattle.”

Where the Gospel of the Nazirenes above states  "Love you one another and all the creatures of God, Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man...", a similar proclamation is made in the Essene Gospel of Peace where it states: "Therefore, I teach you only those laws which you can understand, that you may become men, and follow the seven laws of the Son of Man. Then will the unknown angels of the Heavenly Father also reveal their laws to you, that God's holy spirit may descend upon you, and lead you to his law."    Once again we see that in the progression of the seeker, he must first became man -- i.e., no longer ruled over by his lower animal nature.    And we also see that Nature-Man is incapable of understanding the Higher Laws and Reality of God, until which time he refines his lower nature to the degree where he can live in accord with what is portrayed as the Laws of the Son of Man, and in the process become Man -- i.e., not ruled over by his lower animal nature.   We also see that only after living by the Laws of the Son of Man, wherein he becomes man, can "...the unknown angels of the Heavenly Father also reveal their laws to you, that God's holy spirit may descend upon you, and lead you to his law."

What is being expressed is the great variance between man in the beast-form when he is (1) being ruled over by his lower animal nature; (2) the faith-based man who has begun to embrace the Laws of the Son of Man who Paul portrays as "babes in Christ" who has received the elementary Gospel teachings; (3) the disciple who has embraced these teachings in word, thought, desire and deed, and has begun to be taught by the Angles who has imparted to him the knowledge of the Heavenly Laws; (4) and lastly, the mature disciple who the Heavenly Father has "...descend upon [and has] lead you to his law."    From the allegorical perspective of the scriptures, the people of the Nations are those who are beasts who walk in the form of man who are ruled over by their lower animal nature -- whereas those who are portrayed as the Jew or Jews, are representative of that level where beast-man has received the Royal Law of God, but is still of a lesser level of consciousness where he expresses the Law outwardly in ritual and tradition.   In order to mature and evolve into Spiritual Israel, the Key of Knowledge must be applied, and the full twelve-dimensional potential of Mind must become manifest in the life of the seeker.  And symbolically, this is why Jews who expressed the Law outwardly were seen as Christ-killers by the early Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians who portrayed Jews as worshiping a Demiurge (external) god of this world.   Which is why Jesus portrayed the leaders of the Jews as the offspring of the Devil who were incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritual reality -- i.e., "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it" (John 8:43-44 NKJ - see The Devil - God Of The Jews).  And from a biblical perspective, the Jew can be seen as a symbol representing a necessary rung on the ladder -- i.e., while one's consciousness is still carnal and organic, one is at a level where they have begun to receive the Royal Law, and that person is in the process of bringing about the necessary alchemical transformation into the next level of soul-birth -- which can only be achieved when the consciousness of the Jew becomes transformed into that of Spiritual Israel.

In the scriptural quotations presented in the foregoing, the people are presented on two (2) levels -- i.e., those who are still of an animal-soul level, and those who have begun to enter the Kingdom of man.  And in the Gospel of Luke, these two levels are again presented in the words: “That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:47-48 NIV).  With respect to these two major levels -- keeping in mind that each of the two major levels contain sublevels within them -- as demonstrated in the above, even those who Paul taught all the knowledge of what he portrayed as the (historical) "traditions" of Christ -- with Paul making reference to committed Christians who had learned directly from the Apostle, was baptized and in the words of Paul had received all the initial gifts of the spirit -- Paul portrayed these confirmed believers as still of a "natural" or animal-soul level of consciousness, mind and being.  And when I use the term too carnal to comprehend man's higher reality of the Soul and the Kingdom, I am in fact merely quoting Paul's own words he uses to portray these same baptized and committed Christians who having only received the literal historical teachings, lacked the spiritual maturity to comprehend the True, Spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings -- teaching which Paul warned that the body of committed, baptized Christians were reject as utter "foolishness", if he were to reveal or attempt to teach them -- i.e., “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 KJV).

Jesus himself once again presented this same line of division between the multitude of people who were only capable of hearing allegorical parables who he portrayed as those who were cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org , and the few who had evolved out of the animal-soul level of being, and began to enter into the Kingdom of Man -- and were therefore had begun to be able to receive and comprehend the knowledge of man's higher soul and spiritual natures and realities.  And the prohibition against portraying one's self as a teacher, rabbi or master, was based upon the fact that as shepherds of TheWay, the genuine disciples of Jesus were too guide sincere seekers in the same way as presented in the Essene Gospel of Peace that: "Therefore, I teach you only those laws which you can understand, that you may become men..."  And those who do begin to enter the Kingdom of Man, are then able to be taught directly from the ONE TEACHER who was portrayed as the True Prophet (see http://outerdarkness.nazirene.org/#TrueProphet .

Thus, Jesus taught that those who seek to enter into Life, must "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ) -- and it is imperative to understand that the word translated "destruction", in no manner represents what is actually being presented by the interpreters of the Greek biblical texts.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.     That the higher soul-self generates embryonic images at the conception of the body -- and these soul-images then begin the process of evolving through the levels and stages of birth that Jesus portrayed in the words: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- means that those soul-images that, after emerging out of the physical womb of their mother, and into the environment of this world, have begun the next phase necessary in order to bring about the next stage of birth.   That you are a thought-image which has been generated by your higher soul-self -- i.e., you exist as a projected embryonic seed-image which has been impressed into the physical body at conception  -- is the reason why Paul and the earliest of biblical texts warn that carnal man is not even "known by God" (see Soul-Image).    Therefore, you exist as a Creation of God only by proxy -- and by virtue of the fact that you are a thought projected by your soul -- and it was your soul that was Created by God in the beginning.   And thus, the reality of the words to Know Thyself -- and a house that is divided, cannot stand.

That for countless reasons these soul-images which enter this world in the bodies of man and woman mostly fail to bring about the objective of achieving the next stage of birth that Jesus said was absolutely necessary to achieve permanence in Life, is very much true that they have become as portrayed in the Schofield Reference Bible as being "...ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.    As soul-images that failed to evolve through the next stage of birth, they are for the most part temporal -- being temporal, they can never reincarnate as many in the New Age believe -- and neither can they go to Glory as the Church promotes.   The fact that some people claim to see their past lives, have been deceived when they mistakenly believe that they lived those lives, and the memory has been suppressed.    What they are in effect seeing, is the images which their higher soul-self has previously generated -- failed images which is the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 are portrayed in the words that "...when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"   And these failed images which walked (what Jesus portrayed as) the broad-way of self destruction -- i.e., "...ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose” -- neither reincarnate, nor go to Glory in the Christian sense of the understanding -- and yet, they remain within the higher reality of the soul in that dimension of mind which man, in his very limited understanding, calls time (see The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man).

When Jesus taught that you must achieve the next stage of birth to enter into the Life in the Kingdom, this next stage of birth must be accomplished while you are still in the physical body.    That you, as the projected soul-image, has been inhibited from growing and developing, because of the conditions of the earth in the parable of the  Sower and the Seed, is very much presented in the words: "...Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man. Are they men or women in the image of God whose ways of violence, of oppression and wrong, who choose a lie rather than the truth? No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts."    Thus, the soul-images that are ruled over by the appetites and passions of the lower nature of the body, are temporal with respect to the higher reality of the soul, and can neither reincarnate or go to Glory -- i.e., “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).  

The whole system of animal sacrifice in the Old Testament is allegory -- and it is the lower animal nature within each person that must be sacrificed.   And this is why the early Church Father Epiphanius wrote concerning the Ebionites that they do not engage in the outward ritual observances of the Law of Moses -- i.e., they "...do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blespheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   Yes, it is the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) that reveals to the enlightened soul the inner meaning of the written word of the scriptures that organic man remains blind to (see An Inconvenient Truth).   Epiphanius then quotes the Gospel of the Ebionites/Hebrews where Jesus states: "I have come to destroy the sacrifices" (Panaron 30.16.5) -- i.e., outward sacrifice vs the necessary sacrifice of man's own lower earthly (animal) nature.   And when AskMoses.com states that we must sacrifice our inner animals i.e., "We cannot atone for our shortcomings by sacrificing animals, but we can sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions" -- is this any different than the teachings of Jesus in the Gospel of the Nazirenes: "For they, making a god of their belly, sacrificed to their God the innocent creatures of the earth, in place of the carnal nature within themselves. And eating of their flesh and drinking of their blood to their own destruction, corrupted their bodies and shortened their days, even as the Gentiles who did not know the truth, or who knowing it, have changed it into a lie."   And this is why Paul warned that the person must "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).   With the requirement that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   And this is why those who desire to return to the Inner Kingdom, understand the absolute need to observe the original diet intended for man in the words: "And God said, See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food; and it was so. Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day" (Gen 1:29-31 NKJ). 

Quoting from The Final Temple:

The word Messiah which in Greek is the Christ, and in English is the Anointed, indicates one whose mind has been Enlightened -- i.e., Anointed and Chosen by God to guide Israel.   But what is Israel?  It is not the person of the flesh -- but rather, of the Spirit.  And the confrontation between Jesus and the Pharisees in the New Covenant Gospels, was a reenactment of the proverbial struggle between the spirit and the flesh -- i.e., Able and Cain -- Light and darkness -- the Essene portrayal of the Sons of Light and the sons of darkness -- and these are the struggles that exist within each of us -- and it is this struggle that each of us must overcome.   And that the Pharisees were of the flesh -- and were blind to the higher reality of soul and spirit -- is the reason the Pharisees asked Jesus when the Kingdom of God would come upon the earth as they believed their prophets had predicted? (Luke 17:20-21)   And because the vast number of Jews went in the way of Cain -- and they are and continue to be of the flesh -- they are not even aware that there is an inner, spiritual meaning to the Torah that few people are able to see and understand.   Why?   Because they are oblivious to the above words with respect to the Final Temple.   Therefore, without the necessary conscious understanding, they have not purified and sanctified their own body-Temple.   Thus, the long ignored Jewish Mystic warns: "Thus the tales related in the Torah are simply her outer garments, and woe to the man who regards that outer garb as the Torah itself, for such a man will be deprived of portion in the next world..." (see No Jew Has Seen The Torah).  Which is explained in the Zohar: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak.   The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not.   The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.  

As confirmed in the above article from AskMoses.com, Jesus correctly stated that the Kingdom of God can never come upon the earth in the manner that carnal men predict and look for it to come, because it is within us (see Gate Of Eden) -- all of us -- equally.     And since the Torah is a series of allegorical symbols and forms that portray inner realities of body, mind/soul and spirit (see An Inconvenient Truth) to those who possess the eyes to see beneath what is presented as the "...outer garb as the Torah itself" -- which is often allegorically portrayed as the Torah that could not be received because the children of Israel worshiped the golden calf when Moses returned from the Mount -- which means that within the symbolism of the allegorical forms of the Torah, is the esoteric knowledge necessary to receive the Sacred Manna that one must possess in order to fulfill the Messianic prophesies -- breaking down the inner barriers of mind and being -- and dwelling within the Holy of Holies in the Presence of the Most High.  When the article in AskMoses.com states: "With the destruction of the Second Temple, G-d changed His mode of interaction with the universe."   This is an acknowledgement that the historical man Jesus was the chosen holy vessel and Anointed One (Messiah/Christ) who inaugurated the Holy Temple defined above.   That does not mean that Jesus was God incarnate in the manner that the pagan Gentiles who worshiped everything under the sun proclaimed.  Neither does it mean that Jesus was the only Messiah -- because each of us who seeks to make their body-vessel a Living Temple, is made a Messiah.   And this reality of the meaning of the words Messiah and Christ is demonstrated in the position of the Ebionite Nazirene Disciples of Jesus who were correct in their assertion that Jesus "was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Messiah/Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Messiah/Christ."   Hence, when the Disciples and followers of TheWay "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Messiah/Christs, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity." (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - quotations at http://Ebionite.com ).   So as a Messiah, the teachings of Jesus with respect to the necessary mindset and lifestyle that is required to fulfill the Law within ourselves, meant that he was sent as a Prophet of the Most High to guide the true seekers into the Inner Kingdom.   And isn't this exactly what is presented in the above words of AskMoses: "...G-d destroyed the physical Temple and made it a spiritual place. He took that window and placed it within us. Instead of traveling to Jerusalem, G-d wanted us to find Him in our inner Jerusalem. Now, our bodies are our Temples, our souls are our windows, our minds are our Kohanim and our animal instincts are our sacrifices. We cannot offer physical sacrifices three times a day, but we can pray three times a day. We cannot attend Temple services three times a day, but we can tap into our souls three times a day. We cannot atone for our shortcomings by sacrificing animals, but we can sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions. We cannot find G-d in Jerusalem; we must find Him in us.  This was G-d’s Master Plan. By exchanging a sweeping, dramatic outdoor concert of public spirituality for an internal, personal, private experience, G-d was bringing Himself even closer to humanity, laying the groundwork for the Third and final Temple—an age that will synthesize G-d’s presence inside our hearts and minds and in the world around us in a totally new reality: the Era of Moshiach."

What Jesus taught was the mindset and the necessary Consecrated Life Style to become a Living Temple -- and as the High Priest of our own Living Temple, what is portrayed in the allegory of the Torah and Old Testament as entering within the Holy of Holies of the Jerusalem Temple, is synonymous with striving to enter at the "narrow gate" and permit the Kingdom to come within -- "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ).    And this is why in the Clementine Homilies the Apostle Peter states that if properly understood, there is no difference between the Torah and the New Covenant scriptures -- because the underlying spiritual objective is one and the same.   The problem is that neither the Jews or the Christians understand either set of scriptures with any true spiritual depth -- because their body-temple has been ravaged by the thinking, culture and ways of this world, as portrayed in the plundering of the temple by the carnal forces of this world.   

Notice the very important words in the above article from AskMoses.com:  "We cannot atone for our shortcomings by sacrificing animals, but we can sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions."  And this is why the Ebionite Disciples of Yeshua rejected all animal sacrifice -- i.e., quoting Epiphanius: The Ebionites "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blespheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   Epiphanius then quotes the Gospel of the Ebionites/Hebrews where Yeshua states: "I have come to destroy the sacrifices" (ibid. 30.16.5).   And when AskMoses.com states that we must sacrifice our inner animals, is this any different than the teachings of Yeshua in the Gospel of the Nazirenes: "For they, making a god of their belly, sacrificed to their God the innocent creatures of the earth, in place of the carnal nature within themselves. And eating of their flesh and drinking of their blood to their own destruction, corrupted their bodies and shortened their days, even as the Gentiles who did not know the truth, or who knowing it, have changed it into a lie."

Only those who make their body-vessel a Living Temple -- and in the words of AskMoses.com, they must "...sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions" -- and is this any different than the words of Paul when he commanded the Gentiles to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV)?   Or the requirement that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV):   Which means that we must transform the beastly predator of carnal man's lower nature, into an unblemished perfect lamb that is a fit sacrifice on the altar of our Inner Living Temple.   And this state of required purity and consecration is exactly what is stated by Isaiah where it is written: "And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it" (Isa 35:8 NIV).  

Mankind has freewill -- and as the prodigal sons who have each emerged out of the Kingdom to travail in this world which Jesus portrayed as the Far Country -- each of the lost sons and daughters of the Kingdom must return of their own volition and desire.   That each has the innate power to return, is in fact the very purpose and objective of the scriptures -- i.e., to be used as the Key of Knowledge when each individual desires to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination ( http://GateOfEden.com ).    That the leaders among the Jews had alienated themselves from the Inner Kingdom -- and they attempted to observe the scriptures in outward ritual and tradition -- is the very reason why Jesus condemned them as heretics who hid the Key of Knowledge from the people, and in their carnal interpretations they "...prevent others from entering".   Because the carnal Jews were under the control of what Jesus portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son as the "Citizen ...of the Far Country", they remained blind to the Inner Kingdom and the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "...but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand".    And the fact that those who were the leaders of the people were blind to the Kingdom, and unable to spiritually hear and understand, made it impossible to even begin to compose scriptures where the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom were more plainly presented to the reader.    As Paul warned, if the people who were under the control of the "Citizen ...of the Far Country", were to even be told about the Mysteries of the Kingdom, they would immediately reject these teachings as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery Of The Gospel).    And that this inability to present the esoteric truths of the Gospel remains today, is the reason why the modern congregation of Christian believers remain in subjugation to the "Citizen ...of the Far Country".

Not to understand the meaning of the term "In The House", and to have thrown away the  Key of Knowledge, is to remain totally ignorant of the spiritual meaning of the Gospels and the teachings of TheWay.   In fact, the reality of the term being In The House was and is so important, that the Gospel of the Nazirenes (chapter 19:10) states: "There is a house made without hands, seek that you may dwell therein."  If the believer is truly faithful to the Living  Word -- lives in accordance with the Commandments of the Royal Law of the Most High -- seeks to acquire Genuine Knowledge directly from the Son of God -- and sincerely walks in The Way -- then they will pass through the "narrow way" and the "straight gate" into the Kingdom will open to them.

When the disciples who dwelled In The House, asked Jesus why he taught the multitude of people in the enigma of parables -- wherein, each person's interpretation and understanding was in accord with their own mindset and thinking -- Jesus replied to his disciples: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again, and it should be forgiven them" (Mark 4:11-12 ASV) -- and the term, "...lest haply they should turn again", is stated in reference to the Kingdom that can only be found within, and the presence of the One Teacher therein.  

  Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple: When the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of Jesus expressed the need to fulfill the Law, it was not the literal allegorical text of the Torah which is observed in outward ritual and tradition in the manner of the Jews that was being made reference to -- but rather, the Universal Law of Mind and Spirit that is allegorically presented and functioning within each and every one of us.   Therefore, when the Ebionite Nazirene were portrayed as being Torah Observant, the Law was therefore observed in the exact manner that Jesus said was necessary -- i.e., "The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you--they are full of the Spirit and life" (John 6:63).  
The early Church writer Epiphanius wrote that the Ebionites "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blaspheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   For them to be accused of "blaspheming most of the legislation",  means that they did not at all observe the Torah outwardly in accordance with the letter of the written word in the manner of the Jews -- but rather, they understood the allegorical symbolism that was applicable to unlocking the inner door to the Kingdom.  

In recognition of the existence of man's lower animal nature that not only rules over man's consciousness, but in the words of Paul presented above limits his comprehension and development, it is important to understand man's motivation to perform animal sacrifice as a part of his religion.  Which provokes the question: Did God in the Old Testament require animal sacrifice? Lets begin my answer to this question by quoting the words of Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”
When understood from the perspective of the original authors of the scriptures, what is presented in the scriptures is a blueprint of the seekers own mind -- the levels and forces of consciousness -- and the Laws that control every aspect of the person's life.  And while the scriptures may appear as historical accounts, this is merely the facade that enables the authors to present the inner spiritual meaning which portrays the mental development and spiritual events in the life of the seeker in search of Higher Truth.   Which raises the question: Why would the scriptures contain (allegorical) fabricated "...stories which is repugnant to both reason and common sense" -- which I might also add was why Paul portrayed these stories as the "letter that killeth" [and] "Jewish fables" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).  Why?  The answer goes to the core of our own holographic reality -- and the fact that whatever we perceive in the outer world, is merely a reflection of the inner reality of our own mind and being.  And that primitive man the world over is often observed performing animal sacrifice, is because he is externalizing his own animal nature which he perceives in the outer world.  Innately he senses that his own animal nature must be transformed -- and so, he engages in the (outward) ritual of animal sacrifice -- doing outwardly, what he must accomplish within himself. Quoting from http://TheConsecratedLife.com :


And when AskMoses.com states that we must sacrifice our inner animals, is this any different than the teachings of Jesus in the Gospel of the Nazirenes: "For they, making a god of their belly, sacrificed to their God the innocent creatures of the earth, in place of the carnal nature within themselves. And eating of their flesh and drinking of their blood to their own destruction, corrupted their bodies and shortened their days, even as the Gentiles who did not know the truth, or who knowing it, have changed it into a lie."
Only those who make their body-vessel a Living Temple -- and in the words of AskMoses.com, they must "...sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions" -- and is this any different than the words of Paul when he commanded the Gentiles to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV)? Or the requirement that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV): Which means that we must transform the beastly predator of carnal man's lower nature, into an unblemished perfect lamb that is a fit sacrifice on the altar of our Inner Living Temple.   And this state of required purity and consecration is exactly what is stated by Isaiah where it is written: "And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it" (Isa 35:8 NIV).
It is important to recognize that under the Law of Moses, the Jews were ONLY permitted to perform animal sacrifice in ONE place -- i.e., the Jerusalem Temple.  And when it is understood that the temple in Jerusalem was an allegorical portrayal of the Living Temple that the seeker/disciple must transform in their own body-vessel (see The Living Temple), then it is their understanding that it is their own lower animal nature that must be raised up as an unspotted lamb, and sacrificed on the altar of their own transformed body-temple. Which is why the literal text of the Old Testament is portrayed as the "letter that killeth" when the Jews fail to understand the spiritual meaning of the allegorical text, and apply what Jesus call the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) -- turning the scriptures within their own consciousness, mind and being.  Yet, the message and meaning is of the utmost importance.


As explained above, man is of the fourth kingdom -- with the lower three kingdoms of mineral, vegetable and animal as part of his earthly consciousness.  That man's lower animal nature in many instances rules and controls his consciousness and being (see Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature), which is the cause of much of the violence and brutality in the world.  And because we fail to comprehend the Cosmology of Mind and Being ( http://SoulSelf.org ), and remain ignorant of the fact that in many people what we have is the beast walking in the forum of man, there are countless elements within our modern culture that actually causes and supports the beast in man to prevail in our society.  Further, Paul emphatically warns that Christians and Jews who remain at the level of what he portrays as of a "natural" organic human consciousness, are incapable of comprehending either the higher reality of the Soul, or the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures, because as Paul asserts the faith-based believers of a "natural" mind are of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness and understanding (see What Difference Does It Make) -- and therefore remain totally carnal and earth-bound in their thinking because they are ruled over by their lower animal nature.

The heathen and pagan mind of the mainstream of Gentiles always had great difficulty in understanding the difference between the man Jesus, the Indwelling Logos/Son of God which is representative of the Mind of God (see The Logos), and the One Teacher which Jesus commanded all who would call themselves his disciples and followers, were to seek out and learn from (see The True Prophet).   And it was the living of the necessary Consecrated Life that Jesus ordained, and the seeking of the Kingdom within, that enabled the historical Jesus to become the Messiah, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   And this is especially demonstrated in the words of Edward Gibbon with respect to the original position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus that he was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).   

The historical and spiritual factualness of these words can be proven when one understands the original words that were spoken to the man Jesus at his baptism in the Jordan River -- when the Voice of God stated: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" -- which means that the historical man Jesus was a man who became the Messiah/Christ when he overcame the Laws and became Anointed by God.    That the later Church of Rome which existed as a puppet under the pagan sun worshipping Emperor Constantine, censored and changed the very words of God spoken to mankind, is the primary reason why the Christian world remains shackled to the abyss of spiritual ignorance to this very day.    In the article The Ten Words,  it will be demonstrated that all the pre-Nicene Christian authors who quoted the baptism sequence in their copies of the Gospels, confirmed that prior to the fourth century editing of the scriptures by Pagan Rome, that the Gospels confirmed that Jesus was a holy man who became the Lord's Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling and overcoming the Laws.    Moreover, in addition to the six (6) pre-Nicene Christian authors who are cited in The Ten Words, this fact is further confirmed in the more ancient surviving biblical texts that modern translators continue to ignore to the spiritual pearl of the Christian world today.     That the modern Church continues to reject the very words of God spoken to mankind, in favor of the censored and corrupted words of the fourth century Emperor of Pagan Rome, is the reason why the modern Church which has caused itself to be spiritually flat-lined, only possesses what Paul portrayed as the "elementary" doctrines that the Church Father Origen defined as being “...preached in the Churches …for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”  (see Origen, Contra Celsum). 

If the original Gospels and the witness of the original disciples and followers of Jesus is true -- and the objective of the original teachings is to bring about a condition of mental and spiritual maturity -- thereby enabling each follower of TheWay to become the Anointed (Messiah/Christ -- then it can be stated that the modern Church dogma has virtually little in common with the original teachings of TheWay.   The difference being whether Jesus was a holy man who became At-One with the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God/True Prophet), or whether the Church of Constantine was correct in their assertion that Jesus was God-Incarnate?   The Adam Clark Commentary with regard to the passage at Hebrews 1:5 where Paul quotes the original Gospel statement that the Father said of Jesus: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"  Where the Adam Clark Commentary states: “This most important use of this saying has passed unnoticed by almost every Christian writer which I have seen; and yet it lies here at the foundation of all the apostle's proofs. If Jesus was not thus the Son of God, the whole Christian system is vain and baseless:..."   If the original Gospels are correct -- which teaching was confirmed by the original (Ebionite/Nazirene) disciples and followers of Jesus -- that he was a Holy Man who became At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God who was portrayed as The True Prophet, then the whole focus of the modern Church dogma is indeed "...vain and baseless".

 

What Jesus Do You See? What is clear is that the disciples who were portrayed as being In The House, were taught entirely different than the common people who were portrayed as being "outside".   Why were they taught differently?   Because having abandoned the thinking and lifestyle of this world, they had begun to enter the Kingdom of Man which not only permitted a spiritually elevated level of comprehension, but also provided them entrance into the Inner Kingdom.   In the Gospel of John the question was posed to Jesus as to why he would not show himself to the people who were portrayed as being "outside" -- i.e., the people whose mind and thinking is controlled by the power/god of this world: "Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?" (John 14:22 NIV).   While this rather profound statement was part of a much larger message prior to being edited and removed by the later Gentile Church (see BibleCorruption.com ), even the statement should provoke the question: How could this be said?  Didn't everyone see Jesus?  And what this means is exactly what is presented in the Gospel of Philip in the statement that people can only perceive the Jesus that is in accord with their own Condition.   The reality that has been preserved in the Gospel of Philip reads: "Jesus took them all by stealth, for he did not appear as he was, but in the manner in which they would be able to see him. He appeared to them all. He appeared to the great as great. He appeared to the small as small. He appeared to the angels as an angel, and to men as a man. Because of this, his word hid itself from everyone. Some indeed saw him, thinking that they were seeing themselves, but when he appeared to his disciples in glory on the mount, he was not small. He became great, but he made the disciples great, that they might be able to see him in his greatness."  

What Judas (not Iscariot) was stating is that the Jesus which the disciples saw and heard, was an entirely different Jesus than what the multitudes who are portrayed as being "without", saw and heard.   And we can observe this same reality in the Fundamentalists who promote their dogma that the scriptures are historical accounts -- when in fact they are spiritual accounts that utilize a quasi-historical cloak to reveal "by stealth", the Laws, Forces and the Cosmology of Mind and Being that the sincere seeker needs to possess the knowledge of to bring about and initiate their own spiritual regeneration and birth.  In the same way that the Gospel states that "...he made the disciples great, that they might be able to see him in his greatness."

Taking this great Truth one step further, those of a "natural" (animal-soul) organic mind are incapable of perceiving and comprehending the higher reality of the soul and what the biblical authors portray as the Mysteries of the Kingdom, because of their own (carnal) Condition -- i.e., as stated in the Gospel of Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."    The version that was in the Library that was inadvertently destroyed states: Greek POxy 5) Jesus said: "Recognize what is before your face and that which is hidden from the you will be revealed to you. For there is nothing hidden which shall not be made manifest, nor buried which shall not be raised."   The Gospels were written to serve the needs of a great multitude of people at greatly varying levels of Condition of mind.  Spiritually immature readers and believers see nothing more than an historical narrative which Paul portrays as the "testimony" of Christ. And as a believer becomes a seeker, and a seeker becomes a true disciple, they begin to see what those who do not have the eyes to see are blind to.

In answering this question posed by Judas as to why the Christ that they saw could not be revealed or seen by the people of this world, the focus was on the necessity of obeying Jesus' Commands as presented in the Gospel: "Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me" (John 14:23-24 NIV).   And perhaps even more important is the statement: "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now" (John 16:12 KJV). 
If Jesus was making reference to himself as God Incarnate, or the necessity to say their Jesus-prayer to acquire salvation in the manner of modern Church dogma, then why would he convey to them that they were not yet mature enough to bear the higher knowledge of the Gospel?   In his Epistle to the Trallaus the first century elder Ignatius speaks of the Mysteries of the Gospel and the Kingdom, and writes: “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes.  Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them”.  The only way that Ignatius could have written these words, was if he, himself, understood what was beyond the comprehension of the organic mind of the believers of the simple faith.   And while he states that he had himself progressed to the point where he understood what was incomprehensible to the organic mind of man, he also confesses that though he is aware of the minor mysteries, he is not yet “by any means perfect, nor am I such a disciple as Paul or Peter”.      If Ignatius or the other early Church Fathers who knew the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God were with us today, what profound mystery could they speak regarding the true teachings of Jesus that believers today would be “strangled by them” To the degree that Paul proclaimed to the Christians at Corinth: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS).   Thus, these believers could only be taught the most basic exoteric doctrine of a quasi-historical allegorical account of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), because they were not yet spiritual men -- but rather, they were men of flesh and still very much “babes in Christ”.   Paul then explains that: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS).  

A man of true biblical insight and intellect would want to know why mankind in his organic condition, would reject what Paul calls the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of God as absolute utter "foolishness"???   To the degree that when Paul states that he was "..caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5 NKJ) -- an intelligent seeker of Truth would immediately question as to why "...it is not lawful for a man to utter" what a Disciple who enters the Kingdom experiences?   When Paul warns the baptized and committed Christians at Corinth who he, himself, originally instructed, that they were yet to carnal in their understanding to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel -- which is often referred to as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- he conveyed to them the reality that they would judge and even condemn this higher reality of the Spirit as absolute "foolishness" -- i.e., “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).    Thus, it is imperative to ask the question: What is the "natural man"?     The condition of mankind that Paul is making reference to, would just as well be portrayed as "organic" -- or, of the physical body.   The "natural man" , is the "organic" human being.

What Jesus stated was of such a profound importance to comprehend if the seeker/disciple was to begin to understand the true meaning of the scriptures as set forth in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, that Jesus then warned: "And he saith unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how shall ye know all the parables?" (Mark 4:13 ASV).    And what this means is that if you fail to understand the meaning of the parable of the Sower and the Seed, and put its teachings into practice in your daily lives, that it will be impossible for you to understand any part of the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings.   And if you fail to understand the meaning of the term "In The House", and the difference in the reality of those who Jesus portrayed in the words: "...but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand" -- that you will dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- walking upon what Jesus portrayed as the "broad-way of self-destruction" (Matt 7:13-14). 

To become what is conveyed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed as the "good ground", it is absolutely necessary to live in strict accord with the Gospel Teachings.  Which transformation of self into the "good ground" creates within self the necessary environment for the the Logos to In-Dwell -- i.e., "Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me" (John 14:23-24 NIV).    But this becomes impossible for those who believe in accord with the dogma and traditions of men, and live a lifestyle in accord with the ways of this world.    Which is the basis of the question presented to Jesus: "Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?" (John 14:22 NIV).    Again, of which it is stated that the Logos/Son of God will come and In-Dwell within those who have left behind the mindset and ways of this world, and seek to live the necessary Consecrated Life in TheWay -- i.e., "Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me" (John 14:23-24 NIV).    Which then enables the seeker/disciple to enter the House with the Lord in the Inner Kingdom -- i.e.,  "There is a house made without hands, seek that you may dwell therein" (Gospel of the Nazirenes chapter 19:10)

 If what Paul and the other Gospel Authors stated is true, and there exist higher realities and dimensions of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel ) -- and by virtue of the immaturity of the faith-based believers brought about by an embryonic condition of mind which Paul portrayed as the "natural" mind of man -- and the limitations of this embryonic condition of mind even inhibited Jesus from conveying the true meaning of the scriptures, and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom to all but his inner core of disciples (see In The House - Taught In Parables) -- which means that the biblical authors were therefore powerless to explain in detail many of the most important Gospel teachings and concepts in the literal text of the New Testament -- then the spiritually mature author's of the scriptures who were themselves enlightened to these higher realities, remained virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do's and don'ts -- so that the faith-based believers will be in a position where they will be better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.  To totally ignore these do's and don'ts, without knowing the consequence of one's choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded.      

The leaders among the carnal Jews who interpreted the scriptures in outward ritual and tradition, had thrown away the Key of Knowledge -- and as such, had alienated themselves from the Inner Kingdom, and were as Jesus portrayed them as "blind guides" who were leading the people in the wrong direction.    When Jesus portrayed them as being "without" -- i.e., "...but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables" -- this was a similar condition expressed in the spiritual reality that they existed either in what Jesus portrayed as The Prison, or in the  "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).    And because the leaders of the Jews expressed the scriptures in outward ritual and tradition, and failed to use them as the  Key of Knowledge, was the reason why they were blind guides who could "...not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand" -- and this remains true of the congregation of Christian who continue to embrace the way of the carnal Jews today. 

The Gospel accounts state that Jesus only spoke to the multitude of hearers in the enigma of parables, it is imperative that we recognize that Jesus did not, and could not, speak and teach plainly to those who are portrayed as being "without" the House -- i.e.,  "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV).    The word translated "explained", in the phrase "And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples", literally translated from the Greek into English means to "unloose or untie" -- i.e., what has been "bound or sealed up" -- and "what is obscure and hard to understand" (from Thayer's Greek Lexicon).   And the word translated secret or mystery, makes reference to an esoteric knowledge that can only be revealed spiritually to one who is "in the House", because it is beyond the organic comprehension of those who are portrayed as being "without", or "outside" the House.    The term "open and unloose" the mind, is was also used in the Gospel as the path to entering the Inner Kingdom (see Open & Unloose The Mind).

With respect to the reality of those who are portrayed in the Gospels as being "without", in contradistinction to those who are said to be In The House, the quotation of the early Church Father Origen represents an excellent portrayal of the reality of mind and being that is presented in these words of Jesus -- wherein, Origen writes in reply to the allegations of Celsus that the Church is a secret system (see The Secret Doctrine): “I have not yet spoken of the observances of all that is written in the gospel, each one of which contains much doctrine difficult to be understood, not merely by the multitude, but even by certain of the more intelligent, including a very profound explanation of the parables, which Jesus delivered to 'those without' while reserving the exhibition of their full meaning for those who have passed beyond the stage of exoteric teachings, and who came to him privately in the house. And when he comes to understand it, he will admire the reason why some are said to be without, and others in the house”.

So we must ask: By what means did the disciples receive this esoteric knowledge that was beyond the comprehension of organic man who was portrayed as being "without" -- i.e., Gnosis.  But what is Gnosis -- and how does a person receive this Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom directly from God?   In a state of spiritual denial, the modern Church attempts to ignore the implications of what these words convey.    In fact, few Christians even understand what a parable is.   Moreover, they can't even begin to come to terms with the reality of why one man perceives and comprehends a deeper meaning of a parable, while the multitude of hearers remain oblivious to what has been portrayed as a secret meaning that only a very few can receive.   And while some would like to promote the idea that it is an illustration where a conceptual reality is simplified, just the opposite is factually true.   Moreover, not only is the words portrayed a body of secret knowledge presented throughout the Gospels, but reference is openly made to the word mystery as used in Romans -- i.e., "according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began" -- and in explanation of the above words of Jesus with respect to the use of parables as a means to teach the people, the Wycliffe Bible Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”    If, as openly stated above, it is true that the disciples received instruction that was totally different than what was revealed to the multitude of people who Jesus portrayed as being "...outside", then a true seeker must conclude that every article of faith promoted by the Church today, would have to be totally re-evaluated.    Thus the question: What was Jesus stating with respect to why he spoke in parables?   To ignore this question, is to reject the whole foundational objective and revelation of the Bible.   Jesus was stating that only those who become separate and freed from the limited thinking and carnal ways of this world -- a condition of mind that Paul portrays as "animal-soul" level consciousness that is incapable of elevated thought or reason -- and became true disciples of Messiah/Christ, are able to perceive and understand the secrets of the Kingdom of God -- and in the Greek language, this sacred Knowledge is called Gnosis.   And in view of the fact that the modern Church basically portrays Gnosis as heresy -- even rejecting Paul's use of the word in his plea to Open the Eyes of the Heart.   In the original biblical Greek the knowledge of man that was taught by other men, was portrayed differently than the Divine Manna of the Kingdom that could ONLY be imparted to man directly from the Logos -- i.e., this Heavenly Spiritual Knowledge was called Gnosis.   The early Christian Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the heart.   "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18).   And that Paul wanted very much to speak about the Mystery of the Gospel to the Ephesians, but could not, is the reason he portrayed himself as an ambassador in bonds: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20).  

  The Divine Counterpart: In the terminology of the modern self-help psychology of the New Age, the ego-self equates to the earth-consciousness of the body, which G.I.Gurdjief portrays as the false-personalities of the person.   While the New Age self-help pop psychology is unclear, Gurdjief portrays the soul-seed embryonic image as the essence-self that, like the seed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, must be matured and evolved.    And thus, it is of the utmost importance to recognize Jesus'  warning with respect to organic man's inability to understand anything of any real value, unless this soul-image essence-self is matured and evolved, as per the statement that nearly every student of the Gospels attempts to ignore -- i.e.,  “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV) -- or, in the wording of a the modern language New Living Translation: “But if you can’t understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”   What this confirms is that, unless you bring about the conscious development of the embryonic image that was impressed in the body at conception -- and cease to be ruled over by the earth-consciousness of the body-vessel -- expanding your essence-self as seen in the words:  “…multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times” what was initially received (Mark 4:8 NIV) -- then you are functioning from a ego-false personality perspective, and you will remain (spiritually) dead (see The Dead Know Nothing).   

A parallel modern witness is that of Philip K. Dick as stated with respect to The Ten Principles Of The Gnostic Revelation where he portrays the realty of the person you are in this world with your higher soul-self where he wrote: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor. We are in fact asleep, and in the hands of a dangerous magician disguised as a good god, the deranged creator deity. The bleakness, the evil and pain in this world, the fact that it is a deterministic prison controlled by the demented creator causes us willingly to split with the reality principle early in life, and so to speak willingly fall asleep in delusion."  

As explained in the hyperlink to the Two Creation Accounts, this realm of illusions is totally controlled by the Laws (Laws of Nature and Nature's God) which are designed and imbued with the task of evolving all of Creation from the Alpha of ignorance, to the Omega of Enlightened Light and Knowing.   If man's thoughts that he generates, desires that he envisions, and actions which he manifests, is deserving of intervention with respect to alleviating his struggles and trials of life, then the Laws which I portray as a Living Bio-Feedback system, will automatically intervene in the person's life -- as in accord with the Divine Design of Creation.   In the same way that the Father does not rush into the Far Country when the prodigal son squanders away his inheritance, and brings great sufferings upon himself by virtue of his own actions, neither does Creator-God suspend the Laws and intervene in the life of man.  Why would Creator-God intervene in the thoughts generated by the soul into a realm of illusions, in order to suspend the Laws that were put into place to bring about the greatest good and growth?  That organic man who has squandered away his inheritance, and has permitted himself to be ruled over by his base animal natures, fails to pass the tests of the Laws that returns to each person the fruit of their own thoughts, desires and actions, is not reason to suspend the very Divine Design of Creation when a thought-generated ego-self inherits the trials and fruit of his own actions.  All that man has to do is begin the journey in TheWay as a sincere seeker of Truth, in order to find and experience the solution to all his sufferings and trials.

Among the scriptures contained in the Nag Hammadi Library was the Testimony of Truth, wherein Jesus advises a disciple to become "a disciple of his own higher mind" -- stating that one’s own higher mind is "the father of Truth."   In like manner the Gnostic sage Silvanus encourages his disciples to: “Knock on yourself as upon a door and walk upon yourself as on a straight road. For, if you walk on the road, it is impossible for you to go astray. Open the door for yourself so that you may know what is.”   The ancient sages taught that every human being has a mortal lower self which they portrayed as the eidolon, and an immortal Higher Self (Soul) which they called the DAEMON.   The eidolon is the embodied self -- the part of the self that is connected to the physical body/person -- and can be portrayed as the ego personality. The Daemon, on the other hand, is the true Self -- which is ultimately each person's spiritual connection to God.  The Mysteries is the Knowledge of Self -- i.e., the Cosmology of Mind and Being -- and the esoteric teachings of self were designed to help seekers realize that one’s eidolon is a false self, and that one’s true identity is the immortal Daemon or soul-self.    Therefore, from the eidolon's very limited point of view, the Daemon appears to be an independent Guardian Angel.   Disciples and seekers who still identify with the eidolon, therefore, do not experience the Daemon as their own true Self -- but instead perceive the Daemon to be as a spirit guide, whose job it is to lead them to their spiritual destination.   Hence, because of their own self-ignorance, they see the Daemon as a separate entity that entices them to advance and awake to their true essence.   Plato teaches: "We should think of the most authoritative part of the Soul as a Guardian given by God which lifts us to our heavenly home."

Valentinus taught  that a person receives Gnosis from and through their Guardian Angel, or Daemon -- but that this angelic being is actually the seeker's own Higher Self or Soul.   In ancient Egypt the Daemon had been portrayed as a Heavenly Twin of the eidolon.  This image is also found throughout the Nag Hammadi Library of early Christian (Gnostic) scriptures. The Gnostic sage Mani was the prophet and the founder of Manichaeism, was portrayed as having been conscious of having a protecting angel from the age of four.   At the age of 12, he was said to have realized that this protecting angel was in fact his Heavenly Twin, whom he called the "most beautiful and largest mirror image of my own person."   In the Nag Hammadi version of The Acts of John, John observes that Jesus sometimes held conversations with a Heavenly Twin who descended to join him: He says: “When all of us, his disciples, were sleeping in one house at Gennesaret, I alone, having wrapped myself up, watched from under my garment what he did; and first I heard him say, 'John, go thou to sleep,' and thereupon I pretended to be asleep; and I saw another like unto him come down, whom I also heard saying to my Lord, 'Jesus, do the ones that you have chosen still not believe in you?' And my Lord said, ' You say well, for they are men'."

  The Soul - Thomas Paine's Rights Of Man And Emerson's Oversoul: While Emerson is known as the father of Transcendentalism, he is also known as a Deist -- but by definition, it has been noted that Plato can be defined as a Deist.   But of ultra interest is the statement in the book on Emerson where it is written: "Emerson gives his argument a special twist at this point since his first sentence also alludes to Paine's Rights of Man.  Arguing for the rights of men over the rights of institutions and government, he recalls Paine's claims for the sacred rights of the individual.   Like Emerson, Paine's 'motive and subject" -- as he describes it in a letter of 1806 to John Inskeep, the mayor of Philadelphia -- had always been 'to rescue man from the tyranny and false systems and false principles of government, and enable him to be free.'"  (see Nature's Archives - p. 114).    While it is noted that this exposé portrays Emerson's thesis on the Oversoul as perhaps his most important work, it is also noted that very little useable information is provided to the reader.   And because of the great importance of this higher reality, this present work is intended to fill in the great void with respect to the higher reality of the soul of man that few religions or philosophies today have any real understanding of.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, like many of the early American Gnostics, was a Deist.   Quoting the Wikipedia: The Oversoulť is an essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson, first published in 1841. The broad subject of the essay, considered one of Emerson's best, is the human soul.  Several general themes are treated: (1) the existence and nature of the human soul; (2) the relationship between the soul and the personal ego; (3) the relationship of one human soul to another; and (4) the relationship of the human soul to God.  Influence of Eastern religions, including Vedantism, is plainly evident, but the essay also develops ideas long present in the Western tradition, e.g., in the works of Plato, Plotinus, and Emmanuel Swedenborg The essay attempts no systematic doctrine, but rather serves as a work of art, something like poetry.  Its virtue is in personal insights of the author and the lofty manner of their presentation.  Emerson wishes to exhort and direct the reader to an awakening of similar thoughts or sentiments.  With respect to the four themes listed above, the essay presents the following views: (1) the human soul is immortal, and immensely vast and beautiful; (2) our conscious ego is slight and limited in comparison to the soul, despite the fact that we habitually mistake our ego for our true self; (3) at some level, the souls of all people are connected, though the precise manner and degree of this connection is not spelled out; and (4) the essay does not seem to explicitly contradict the traditional Western idea that the soul is created by and has an existence that is similar to God, or rather God exists within us. This idea was later adopted by many religions.

Take notice of the above statement:  "...at some level, the souls of all people are connected, though the precise manner and degree of this connection is not spelled out" -- and when the Cosmology of Mind is understood, it is seen that what Emerson was missing was an understanding of the Matrix of the Soul (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image ) -- and holographically, this same Matrix of the Soul also exists on a higher level within the Matrix of the Logos (see Logos ).   Other quotes by Emerson on the soul of man is seen in the words: "The soul comes from without into the human body, as into a temporary abode, and it goes out of it anew it passes into other habitations, for the soul is immortal."   And again: "It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals… and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some strange new disguise." —Ralph Waldo Emerson

In the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image ), man is portrayed as a projected image of the soul -- and in the same way that all the previous images of the soul-self that lived in all the lifetimes that the soul has lived are all dwelling within the Matrix of the Soul, all the souls who are portrayed as the Soul-Self and the True Being that each of us is, all dwell within the Matrix of the Logos (Mind of God).  Holographically,  in the same way that the soul is the sum total of all the lifetimes that it has lived, the Logos (Mind of God) is the sum total of all the experiences of all the souls that came into existence since the beginning of Creation -- and thus, all of Creation is evolving and moving from the Alpha of ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light. 

When Paul warned the Christians who he had himself taught that they were yet too carnal and undeveloped to comprehend the true meaning of the Gospel and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom (see Mystery Of The Gospel), one of the most important concepts that the organic mind of man has great difficulty with is what is best portrayed as the Segmentation of the Mind.   Even though Jesus himself taught that the Kingdom of God will never come upon the earth in the manner that carnal men look for it (Luke 17:20-21), the vast majority of Christians continue to ignore these words of Jesus, and look for the Kingdom to come outwardly in the manner of the Jews who Jesus condemned as blind guides for throwing away the Key of Knowledge.   And thus, in the same way that they were too carnal to comprehend the segmentation of mind and the higher reality that Jesus was a man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan (see The Ten Words), the Church corrupted the very words of God spoken to mankind -- because they were too carnal to comprehend the original teachings respecting the man Jesus was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).   Or that Jesus was the example and pattern for all of mankind because in the original teachings of the Gospel Jesus was portrayed as being "...justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ." Hence "when [believers] thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity."  (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).    That the majority of Christians were too carnal in their thinking, mindset and lifestyle to understand this essential original teaching of the Gospel, is because they could not conceive of the reality that the mind of man is segmented (see The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind) into levels of higher and lower fragmented consciousness that alienates man not only from the inner Kingdom, but the higher reality of his own soul -- and ultimately God.

In many respects, the same problem exists as to why the Christian world which is limited by a body of believers whose human organic limitations of mind can't come to terms with the levels of segmented mind that make up their own Cosmology of Mind -- which organic limitations inhibit them from understanding the reality of the Logos/True Prophet/Son of God -- and all those other religions that cannot understand the Oversoul presented by Emerson and other Deists and American Gnostics.    This same inability to understand the segmentation of mind causes many to align themselves with the Eastern doctrine of reincarnation where it is dogmatically portrayed that the soul, upon entering the body-vessel, forgets all the previous lifetimes it has lived.   But to even make such a suggestion, is to ignore the above positions of (1) G.I. Gurdjieff that the person you are in this world is a series of false personalities; (2) the false-self portrayed by Philip K. Dick; (3) or what Emerson portrays as the ego-self.   As presented in the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 with respect to the relationship of what is portrayed as your Likeness, and the images which came into existence before you -- i.e., your true self or soul-self is portrayed in the words: Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice."  Contrary to Eastern dogma and the concept of reincarnation, the soul or soul-self does not enter into this world -- but rather, what enters into the body-vessel at conception is an embryonic image of the higher soul-self -- i.e., "...But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"   And these images which failed to become manifest do not reincarnate -- neither do they go to Glory as the Christians believe -- but rather, as images that failed to attain the next level of birth, they remain within the Matrix of the Soul (see Soul-Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral).  

In each instance it is demonstrated that the person you are in this world is not the true being that you are -- but rather, a projected image of your soul which is your true self that does not incarnate into this world.    Which a more enlightened understanding of the Cosmology of Mind would convey to us the correct understanding of the warning of Jesus with respect to the words: "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ) -- the word translated "destruction", in no manner represents what is actually being presented.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.    And in the same way that a woman does not perish if one of her eggs fails to evolve into a fetus, neither does the soul perish when one of its images which is projected into this world, fails to evolve through the three stages of birth.    And in the same way that the woman's egg that fails to become an embryo is "...thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”, so too is the embryonic image of the soul that is projected into this world "...unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose.”    And this purpose, is to bring about the necessary threefold birth that enables the soul to enter into what Jesus portrayed as Life.

To further demonstrate the higher reality of birth that was portrayed to Nicomedus in the Gospel of John (see Cosmic Ovum And Sperm), Jesus stated: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- and this fact is a true reality of life.    Yet, because the Church has been spiritually disenfranchised by Pagan Rome when they adopted the religious doctrines of the heathen Emperor Constantine in the fourth century, the modern dogmatic Church is totally incapable of understanding the reality of mind and spirituality that Jesus is portraying, and they have adopted the carnal doctrine that this required second birth is accomplished by repeating a prayer to the Jesus-god of Rome.    In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.    Jesus then states to Nicomedus in the Gospel of John: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.  That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again" -- i.e., that birth which is of the flesh, is of this world -- while that birth which is born out of the Living Water of Immersion in the cleansing of the teachings of TheWay, and the Feminine Holy Spirit in the form of a Virgin Birth that is not of the physical, but of the Spirit -- only such a person who becomes a disciple of TheWay -- "...fulfill[ing] the commandments of the Law [within himself], he would have been the Christ" -- is able to achieve the objective of the Gospel and bring about the next phase of birth that Jesus taught was absolutely necessary to be called his disciple.   And only those who achieve this next level of birth is able to gain entrance into the Kingdom and Life.    Moreover, that not only the historical man Jesus, but also his inner core of disciples, had achieved these other levels of birth, is seen in the words: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.  If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:1-12 NKJ).   Take notice of the plurality of Jesus' words and witness: "...We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness."     Who, therefore, is the WE that Jesus is making reference to?   That the Christian world is incapable of understanding what is being stated, is because the Church became spiritually disenfranchised by adopting the doctrines and lifestyle of Pagan Rome.    And thus, the next stage of the Virgin Birth remains an enigma to the whole foundation of their thinking.

An integral part of the original Ebionite Nazirene teachings that few people understand, was echoed by Paul who taught the necessity of transforming man's lower earthly nature (see Overcome  ).   Paul commands all those who called themselves Christians: "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV - see Overcome ).   Thus, in effect, what Paul is stating is that you must cease to be just a Cosmic Ovum And Sperm -- cut off the loss of vital life-force which is portrayed as the squandering away of the prodigal son's inheritance -- and strive to become a spiritual-embryo with the opportunity to achieve the next stage of soul-birth.

It is impossible to get to God even in meditation which is promoted by Transcendentalism, the New Age and the Eastern religions, as well as modern quasi-Deism, for many of the reasons explored in The Way Of The Monk.   The reality that the person you are in this world is an image of your true self (soul-self) -- often portrayed as the ego-self or false-personality -- then it remains that it is impossible to connect directly to God, while bypassing the true self or soul-self that dwells in a higher realm between you and the Logos of God.   Thus, the Gospel states:  "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?" (Luke 9:25).   And how does the soul-image or Emerson's ego-self become lost?   By failing to become their true self -- i.e., their higher soul-self or oversoul -- as presented in the words: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".   Why does both the Gospel of Thomas and Luke 9:25 make note of this world as a loss of self?   Because the being you are in this world has little in common with your true self that you do not know -- i.e., your higher soul-self or Emerson's oversoul.   And as presented in  The Way Of The Monk, while in meditation you can gaze at the Light of the soul through the sixth spiritual center in the head (chakra-gazing), without fulfilling the Laws within yourself and manifesting Wholeness in the physical, gazing at the Light of the soul that you mistake for God, is as far as you can go along that path.   And what is often portrayed as Christ-Consciousness which is brought about by meditation on what can be portrayed as chakra-gazing and head-sex will release endorphin's into one's body-mind which will distort the person's understanding of a higher reality that they are only capable of perceiving light from -- while largely because of a lack of Wholeness, they fail to understand the source and reality of that Light.   But for our discussion here, it is imperative to understand that the mind of man is segmented -- and paradoxically, each segment is functioning independently on one level, while on a deeper level intimately connected to the whole.   To some degree this is presented in The Holographic Pattern Of The Twelve Within The One, which is further detailed in The Enigma Of The Twelve - The Laws - And The Tree Of Life.

Once again, while from a paradoxical perspective the statement in Acts -- i.e., "For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, We are his offspring"ť (Acts 17:28 NIV) could be construed as Pantheistic -- the problem is not that the Pantheists are wrong on this point -- but rather, there is a whole lot more to the equation.   What it amounts to is the fact that fragments of truth that are devoid of the larger reality, do not represent Truth.   That the above verse in Acts affirms this fragment of truth promoted by the Pantheists, is confirmed in the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary for this verse where it is written: "This is the first half of the fifth line, word for word, of an astronomical poem of Aratus, a Greek countryman of the apostle and his predecessor by about three centuries. It is found also (nearly as here) in a religious hymn of Cleanthes of Troas, a contemporary of Aratus. But, as our speaker hints, the same sentiment is to be found in other Greek poets. They meant it, doubtless, in a pantheistic sense"ť.   The problem is that as with all the religions of mankind, while the Pantheists are correct from one paradoxical perspective, it is also true that there is so great a reality that is missing from Pantheism to render it in grave error as understood by most people who portray themselves as Pantheists.   And among the many realities that are absent in Pantheism is presented in the above words expressed in The Ten Gnostic Principles in the words: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self...".   If this is true, and we are the false or ego-self who is totally unaware of our true self that lies beyond and on the other side of a barrier within our own segmented mind -- and on Emerson's writing on the Oversoul it is concluded in comment: (1) the human soul is immortal, and immensely vast and beautiful; (2) our conscious ego is slight and limited in comparison to the soul, despite the fact that we habitually mistake our ego for our true self; (3) at some level, the souls of all people are connected, though the precise manner and degree of this connection is not spelled out; and (4) the essay does not seem to explicitly contradict the traditional Western idea that the soul is created by and has an that is similar to God, or rather God exists within us. This idea was later adopted by many religions.      

While the Christians and what is portrayed in the above as God within which "...idea was later adopted by many religions" may once again be paradoxically true, the fact that there is an inconceivable reality of soul and spirit between us and God that is not at all understood -- of which the Christians ignore the statements of Paul which is explored in Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image , which conveys the reality that God does not even know man -- it is important to understand that such a statement of reality on the surface would be rejected as being impossible by the vast majority of religions of the world.   And yet, if the statement is true, then all the religions of the world which have adopted manmade carnal dogma to explain what is inconceivable from an organic human perspective, means that all of these religions all promote little more than fragments of truth, and are all equally in error with respect to the more important Truths that is beyond the perception of organic man.   Which is why the Gnostics portrayed the religions of man as worshiping a Demiurge that created the world of illusions within which organic man dwells -- i.e., Plato's Cave.   Further, in addition to the statement by Paul and the confirmation in the Gospel of Thomas, the same reality is portrayed in the words of St. Nazianzen which can be found at http://BeingOfLight.com where it is written: When God, in the words of St. Nazianzen, no longer is an "object of wonder"ť, but rather an "object of desire"ť -- and we, desiring to be purified from the defilements of this world, make ourselves fit vessels for the Lord to indwell, the Spirit, according to St. Nazianzen, reveals to us our true nature, and the revelation of this manifest Sacred Knowledge makes "...us like God; so that when we have thus become like Himself, God may, to use a bold expression, hold converse with us as Gods, being united to us, and that perhaps to the same extent as He already knows those who are known to Him".  St. Nazianzen then writes that "...the Divine Nature then is boundless and hard to understand"ť by those who are yet carnal and think as natural beings of this world.  Thus, again we see this same reality that is not understood in the words: "...knows those who are known to Him"ť.   If we are indeed a false or ego-self that began as an embryonic image projected into the body by our true self -- i.e., our higher soul-self that is not manifest in the physical body -- then God can only know that which is true, and not that which is false and of this world.   And that the false cannot exist in the Kingdom, is the reason why Jesus is portrayed as totally rejecting the counterfeit believer who does not pick up his own cross and fulfill the Law within himself: "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'  And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" (Matt 7:21-23 NKJ).

What we see unfolding here is the Grand Enigma and Paradox of Confusion that is the essence of the long ignored words of Paul (see Mystery Of The Gospel) that man's own higher soul and spiritual reality remains totally inconceivable to the organic mind of man -- that this higher soul-reality remains virtually unknown to the multitude of religious and philosophical leaders in the world who mistake the false ego-self with the true soul-self that is not manifest in the body-vessel -- and is representative of the ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY knowledge which caused Valentinus to state that even among the sincere seekers, only a few will ultimately succeed.  While the eternal souls or soul-selves are the Creation of God -- we are an embryonic image of our soul that has been projected into this world (see  Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) -- and that principle which we call God which exits at the Core Essence of Creation, cannot bypass the levels of Creation and Consciousness and directly intervene in the lives of man who only exist within God by PROXY of being an embryonic image that exists within the reality of the soul-self.

What is presented just following the foregoing hyperlink beginning with The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man -- which opens the door to what is further presented in Soul-Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral -- portrays the Mind of the soul as existing within a Matrix, of which the vast majority of mankind remain an unknowing part of.   And it is from this higher reality that I write that from our perspective, there is no such thing as reincarnation -- and yet, our higher soul-self which Philip Dick and Emerson portray as the True Self, evolves to Completion over the course of many lifetimes.   But that what we call Time, is in fact a dimension of mind and consciousness that few of mankind possess the capacity to even begin to comprehend, is a reality within the Matrix of Mind that is necessary to even begin to understand our own higher soul and spiritual reality -- all of which as attested to by the Deists, is functioning under the Laws.   And that there was a body of esoteric knowledge within Deism that could not be conveyed to those whose minds remained functioning on the lower levels of organic consciousness, is demonstrated in Franklin's rejection of Paine's The Age of Reason.   Not that Paine was wrong -- but because of the consequences of revealing even some of this esoteric knowledge Franklin wrote: . [T]hink how great a portion of mankind consists of weak and ignorant men and women and of inexperienced, inconsiderate youth of both sexes who have need of the motives of religion to restrain them from vice, to support their virtue . . . . I would advise you, therefore, not to attempt unchaining the tiger, but to burn this piece before it is seen by any other person . . . . If men are so wicked with religion, what would they be without it? I intend this letter itself as proof of my friendship"     Which I liken to the statement by Origen that the doctrine of the physical resurrection was "...preached in the Churches for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief" (Origen Contra Celsum).

 

 

The True Reality of Woman has been so censored and rejected by modern religious and intellectual cultural authorities, that it can be factually stated that mankind has been deprived and even robbed of his true potential and inheritance.   While traditionally, woman has been viewed only in her reproductive and sexual role, her true esoteric potential and reality which has often been suppressed either by male-dominated religious systems, and/or philosophical ignorance, has had the effect of rendering most of mankind's intellectual and cultural concepts flat-lined and  virtually worthless and mentally inhibiting.    

If a person looks up the term Sibyl in the Wikipedia, you get: "The sibyls were women that the ancient Greeks believed were oracles. The earliest sibyls, according to legend,[1] prophesied at holy sites. Their prophecies were influenced by divine inspiration from a deity; originally at Delphi and Pessinos, the deities were chthonic deities. In later antiquity, various writers attested to the existence of sibyls in Greece, Italy, the Levant, and Asia Minor."   In the more enlightened spiritually oriented cultures of the past it was well recognized that women possessed powers of mind and spirit that men totally lacked.   They not only did not stay home, but they were revered as goddesses who were all-seeing and knowing.  Under the heading of Pythagoreanism ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagoreanism ) we find:  "Women were given equal opportunity to study as Pythagoreans, and learned practical domestic skills in addition to philosophy.  Women were held to be different from men, sometimes in positive ways.  The priestess, philosopher and mathematician Themistoclea is regarded as Pythagoras' teacher; Theano, Damo and Melissa as female disciples. ...Female philosophers include: Pythais (mother of Pythagoras), Theano (wife of Pythagoras), Cheilonis, Tyrsenis, Myia (Daughter of Theano and Pythagoras), Damo, Timycha, Bitale, Aspasia, Alexis, Perictione (believed to be Plato's mother), Arete, Melissa, Phintys, Ptolemais, Arignote." 

Wise men of the past were enlightened as to the divine role and reality of the feminine mind -- of which her physical body is only the vessel that accommodates the mental and spiritual facilities that cannot be manifest in the physical body of man.  We still dwell in a spiritual dark ages that mankind has yet to emerge from. And because the Christian, the Islamic and the vast majority of Jews remain spiritually ignorant and mentally undeveloped, everything that conflicts with their very limited understanding is often labeled heresy and satanic. And one of the problems is that academia actively supports and promotes the philosophy that other than their child bearing roles, there is no difference between men and women (see Academia's War On Women @ http://treeoflife.nazirene.org/#AcademiaWarOnWomen .  Which means that in many very important ways, modern academia is even more ignorant than the religions of ignorance that have cast mankind into a spiritual dark ages.   Left wing icon Larry Summers was thrown out as the president of Harvard for merely expressing the idea that women are intellectually different than men -- which has institutionalized and taken the shackles of ignorance to new heights (see http://ebionite.com/harvard.htm ).   In the below I will demonstrate that there is an important Alchemical formula or equation that must be embraced and utilized in order to achieve greater awareness, expand the potential of mind, and achieve a true state of Knowing.  What is paramount to the equation is to not only understand the dynamics of the genders and their opposite powers of mind and being, but to develop these powers of mind to their absolute zenith. The problem is that our academic institutions are so dominantly male-linear oriented -- with women who the authors of Brain Sex correctly portrays as wannabe surrogate men -- an (educational?) environment with the natural feminine-intuitive so suppressed on the altar of Feminist political correctness -- that there exists an absolute void with respect to even a common language in order to communicate with these people who consider themselves enlightened intellectuals.   Are these people truly Knowing? From a higher perspective of reality, these men are dumber than a goose, because they dwell in a feminine void.  What is a feminine void? As the ancients well knew, all of Creation dwells within the Dynamic Balance of Male/Female -- with the Third-Force being the balance of Mind that exists between these all-consuming polarities. Since all realities are relevant, an imbalance in the mental caused by the suppression of the feminine powers of mind, can in many ways be compared to an Intellectual Self-Imposed Down Syndrome which is a genetic imbalance in the physical. In Spirit when I was being prepared for the life I had begun as a seeker, I was told that one of the most important concepts that I would have to convey is that "equal does not mean the same".   While it is true as presented in the above that the Feminine Intuitive must be developed -- sometimes independent of male input or linear limitations -- it is also true that there is a higher reality above the developed male or female that can only be reached and achieved through the interaction of the evolved male and female powers of mind and being. And this is why in many of the more spiritually advanced communities, women were only taught by other women -- and they were never taught in the very linear manner of men. Quoting from http://nazirene.org/secret_doctrine.htm#SecretSystem :

Secret System? When Celsus attacked the Church for being a “secret system”, teaching some a different doctrine than others, Origen replied: “Moreover, since he frequently calls the Christian doctrine a secret system, we must confute him on this point also, since almost the entire world is better acquainted with what Christians preach than with the favorite opinions of philosophers. For who is ignorant of the statement that Jesus was born of a virgin, and that He was crucified, and that His Resurrection is an article of faith among many, and that a general judgment is announced to come, in which the wicked are to be punished according to their desserts, and the righteous to be duly rewarded?”

Fundamentally, what Origen enumerated was elementary Christian doctrine 101 -- i.e., what the Apostle Paul refers to as the “milk” -- or that basic doctrine which still exists to this very day (see Mystery Of The Gospel). Origen acknowledged these doctrines -- refuted Celsus by stating that these beliefs are openly expounded as articles of Christian faith, and then Origen explained: “And yet the mystery of the Resurrection, not being understood, is made a subject of ridicule among the unbelievers. In these circumstances, to speak of the Christian doctrine as a secret system is altogether absurd. But that there should be certain doctrines, not made known to the multitude, which are after the exoteric ones having been taught, is not a peculiarity of Christianity alone, but also of philosophic systems, in which certain truths are exoteric and others are esoteric. Some of the heroes of Pythagoras were content with his ipse dixit; while others were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears. Moreover, all the mysteries that are celebrated everywhere throughout Greece and the barbarous countries, although held in secret, have no discredit thrown upon them, so that it is in vain he endeavors to calumniate the secret doctrines of Christianity, seeing that he does not correctly understand its nature”.

It is not that certain teachings and realities were kept secret -- but rather, that it is impossible for mankind who exists at an "animal-soul" level of mind to comprehend higher spiritual reality (see http://AnInconvenientTruth.org/#WhatDifference ). While the Feminine Powers of Mind were known by the more advanced among the ancients, I know for sure that such authorities as Pythagoras understood that the supreme development of mind and spirit required the direct interaction of an evolved man and woman. And the fact that a great void exists between what is published and known by those who were only able to hear the ipse dixit of such ancient authorities -- the term ipse dixit defined as Ipse dixit (Latin for "he himself said it") is a term used to identify and describe a sort of arbitrary dogmatic statement, which the speaker expects the listener to accept as valid -- because of the limits on what could be stated openly, what we call the Cosmology of Mind and Being and the Higher Reality of the Soul was not, and could not, be openly stated to a peoples incapable of understanding anything above that of an animal-soul level of consciousness. And it is in understanding this grate void that has motivated me to write on the Soul-Self in the manner that I have. And Origen was correct in his assertion that this body of esoteric self-knowledge had to be reserved only for those who were prepared to hear it. And since this Knowledge of the Cosmology of Mind and Being is lacking in our modern culture -- and only vaguely revealed in what was openly written in the ancient world when mankind understood the reality of the term Know Thyself -- some of the greatest philosophers of the past have been guided and drawn to my writings of the Soul and the teachings on the Tree of Life.

To Know Thyself, one must know and understand that mankind is divided across positive and negative polarities of mind and being -- and either gender apart from the other, remains hopelessly incomplete.   In the foregoing (see Soul), Emerson writes about the relationship of man to his un-manifest soul or soul-self -- i.e., (1) the human soul is immortal, and immensely vast and beautiful; (2) our conscious ego is slight and limited in comparison to the soul, despite the fact that we habitually mistake our ego for our true self.    Thus, the questions that must be answered: (1) How can man mistake the ego-self for the true soul-self?  (2) How can the vast majority of the worlds religions mistake the un-manifest soul for God?   Why?   Because man in his organic state of mind has no understanding of what can be portrayed as the Cosmology of Mind -- and lacks the necessary knowledge associated with the adage: Know Thyself.

If it is true -- and the unknown and un-manifest soul-self is immortal and possesses permanence, then how can the ego-self that man confuses for the true-self, also possess permanence?   Or, does it?  And why?   And how can we perceive and become our true soul-self that is immortal?    One of the primary reasons why the ego-self of man that is manifest in this world remains totally ignorant of the higher reality of his own soul and true self, is because he fails to recognize that the soul-consciousness of higher reality is divided in this world across the spectrum of male and female -- and without the merging of opposites, it remains impossible to make any real progress beyond that of the ego-self of organic man in his divided state.   In the below subheadings, this important and crucial union of opposites will be explored.

An important teaching that was removed from the Gospels is preserved in the Second Epistle of Clement where it is explained when and how the Kingdom will come (within the individual person) in the censored and suppressed words: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.    For the Kingdom to come within the seeker, they must possess Wholeness -- and Wholeness is dependent upon not only the union of what is portrayed as male/female -- but the development of mind and being within the Divine Pattern.   This same message of the reunification and development of self is also seen in the words: "The Lord did everything in a mystery. . . He said, 'I came to make the things below like the things above, and the things outside like those inside. I came to unite them.'" (see Gospel Of Philip).

   The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind: If I pose the question: Do you know the purpose and objectives of the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay?   Only Christians who have been deemed heretics and outcasts by the traditional Church, might begin to answer this question with some degree of understanding!!!   Why?   Largely because of government intervention into the affairs of the Church which for purely political gain, imposed manmade dogmatic restrictions on the Church -- hunted down and murdered those who dissented with the government position -- edited the scriptures to support their dogma -- and destroyed all scriptures which more closely reflected the original teachings.   The result is that while the original teachings associated with the historical man Jesus known as TheWay was the finest of all of man's religious efforts, these once sublime teachings have been castrated and rendered spiritually impotent.

An important insight into the very essence, purpose and higher spiritual objectives of the original teachings of TheWay is contained in an article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”    What is expressed in these words is of the utmost importance.   Why?   Because the original teachings of Jesus was not the blind faith and belief in a prophet or god-man -- but rather, the means to transform all Christian disciples of TheWay into prophets and mystics as demonstrated in the words: "...From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   But, we must then pose the question: Just what is a "...religion of the spirit"?    Like an astronaut who travels beyond the limits of the earth's atmosphere into outer space, a spiritual religion prepares the seeker/disciple to transcend the barrier of this physical world, and enter into what the biblical authors portrayed as the Kingdom of God which Jesus taught was within us.   But to accomplish this spiritual transcendence, you had to first prepare the physical body to make it an environment that would permit "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” to be brought about -- and this requires a great amount of effort and preparation.     In the parable of the Sower And The Seed, this necessary environment was portrayed as the "good ground" that enabled the expansion of 100 times what was originally manifest within the disciple/seeker.    But since the majority of people are simply unwilling to make the commitment to actually live in accord with these teachings, they embrace charlatan clergy who promote (pagan) dispensations and exemptions that assure the people that they can acquire the promise of the religious teachings, without actually having to live in accord with the religious teachings.    And in the same way that charlatans peddle get-rich schemes which rob the people of their wealth and prosperity -- what Jesus portrayed as wolves in sheep's attire peddled short-cut schemes -- and it was these counterfeit shepherds who seduced the naive into handing over their money and support so they could live lucratively off the collection plate.   

The spiritual Christians who followed in TheWay and prepared themselves to transcend the natural physical limitations of the body, possessed the Divine Knowledge of the Kingdom which they had succeeded in entering.   And the Spiritual Christians were opposed by those who portrayed themselves as Orthodox -- who more often than not, were charlatans who for the sake of mammon and the political power of this world, ardently opposed the Spiritual Christians because they represented a direct threat to their base of money and political power.  

  Intuitive Mind Vs Linear-Rational: The question can be rightfully asked: If the above is true, then why can't mystics and enlightened spiritual men speak plainly to the people, instead of using the enigma of allegorical scriptures?   The answer can only be understood as the seeker/disciple begins to fulfill the ancient adage to Know Thyself -- and when the Cosmology of Mind is rightly understood, the truth and the reality of self that the disciple seeks, already exists within them -- i.e., "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it" (Matt 13:44-46).   The theme of giving up all that you presently have in order to acquire the treasure or pearl of great value that can only be found within you, is the giving up of the thinking, mindset and lifestyle of the cultures, philosophies and religions of this world.   But just as important is the teaching: "Another parable spoke he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened" (Matt 13:33).   In this parable the Intuitive Mind is portrayed in the feminine -- the hidden denotes within one's own mind and being -- and the "...three measures of meal" portrays the threefold reality of mind that must be leavened (expanded) beyond the physical.   But what is the threefold reality of mind?    Holographically, it is the Divine Pattern with which all or Creation is imbued.   But just as important is the reality that this holographic pattern exists across the spectrum of all levels of being -- i.e., the threefold pattern across the physical -- across the physical mind in the division of intuitive (feminine) and linear (masculine) -- across the physical-spiritual as manifest across the vital life-force emitted by woman which is opposite to that of man.   But all these divisions across the gender divide are in the physical -- and holographically, the Divine Pattern is manifest in the physical and spiritual natures as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son -- wherein the elder son is not manifest in the physical world that is portrayed as the Far Country, and remains with the Father in the Kingdom.   But when it is recognized that all duality is in reality threefold when the third-force balance is understood -- and when the third-force balance of the Divine Pattern is recognized as the reality of the pre-existent soul (or soul-self) that is a Being Of Light, only then can be even begin to understand the deeper spiritual meaning and objectives of the Gospel teachings.

When the above reference to the Divine Pattern is understood as manifest throughout all of Creation, then greater comprehension is realized in the foregoing quotation that was removed from the Gospels by the later Church, and is preserved in the Second Epistle of Clement where it is written: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.  The third-force balance between the Intuitive and Linear Spheres of Mind must both bring the two together as "one flesh", and raise the third-force balance up to the level of the higher soul-self where there is "...neither male nor female’”    But to accomplish this "...that which is without" [the physical mind as portrayed in the prodigal son] and "...that which is within" [the spiritual nature as portrayed as the elder son in the parable], must become manifest in the third-force reality of the higher soul-self -- i.e., "...When two shall be one" -- and this third-force balance is our true self, which is a Being Of Light.

Mystics have long warned mankind that the reality of this world of appearances is not at all what is seems to be through the perception of man's physical eyes and senses -- i.e., that there is a great deal more that man's senses and perception cannot detect or even imagine.   And this same enigma of the limits of man's physical senses was noted by Albert Einstein who concluded with respect to man's dilemma when he stated: "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."   

In view of the fact that our culture neither understands the intuitive spheres of mind -- neither do they understand the Source of knowledge that the intuitive spheres of mind has the potential to tap into -- resulting in that condition whereby mankind has for all intent and purposes shackled himself to a condition of profound self-imposed ignorance with respect to a higher reality that he does not at all understand.   And what the Mystic has long warned mankind, is that because of the shackles imposed upon mankind by his traditional religious, philosophical, cultural and educational institutions which "...have created a society that honors the [rational] servant and has forgotten [and suppressed the development of] the [intuitive] gift" -- thus, blinding mankind to the underlying cause of all that man sees and experiences in this world, man remains perpetually lost and blind in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- or what the philosopher portrayed in the analogy of the illusions of Plato's Cave (see Cave) .  

That the whole of our culture is based exclusively upon the very limited vision of the linear-rational mind which strives to overpower and inhibit the development of the intuitive gift, is why the Apostle Paul warned "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." (Col 2:8 NIV).   Thus, where the biblical authors portray what they call the "testimony" of Christ as the entry-level language of allegorical symbols that are intended to act as a catalyst in the beginning development of the entry-level believing Christian, the objective is to bring about the necessary maturity and transformation in the development of the latent intuitive spheres of mind, that enables the seeker/disciple of TheWay to fulfill the higher spiritual objectives of the Gospel -- as presented in the above words of the Britannica: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.   That this spiritual objective and body of esoteric teachings became lost when the Church came under the dominion of Pagan Rome -- which was the primary reason why our Constitutional Framers inhibited the government from interfering in the practice of religion -- means that the spiritual objective of the practice of religion is in the development of the seeker/disciple to utilize those higher intuitive areas of the mind that is able to connect with the inner transcendent -- i.e., "...contact with the transcendent [that was] part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.    Which means that the true objective of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay is "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” through the development of the intuitive centers of the mind which Einstein correctly portrays as "...a sacred gift".

The very fact that it was the objective of the original teachings associated with the historical man Jesus known as TheWay, to bring this condition of enlightenment about in the life of the individual Christian believer, means that there exists the inherent potential to manifest this enlightened reality of mind within the individual believer who becomes a disciple of TheWay.   Which means that the question then becomes not if -- but rather, how to bring this "...heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” about in the life of the believer as he progresses down the path of TheWay?   Certainly not through the further development of the mind through what is portrayed as the linear rational servant.   In the picture at the right -- "the frontispiece to her translation of Newton, Émilie du Châtelet appears as Voltaire's muse, reflecting Newton's heavenly insights down to Voltaire" (see Voltair) -- what is personified in the term muse, is always representative of a feminine source of wisdom -- and is very much an allegorical personification of the intuitive aspects of one's own mind that provides insight and access to the higher source of knowledge and wisdom within one's self.   In the image of the three muses at the left, in Greek writings these would be representative of the personification of the intuitive aspects of mind which must be developed in order to begin to tap into and access man's inner Source of Mind and Being.   And in this respect such biblical figures as Mary Magdalene is not the personification of an historical person -- but rather, the purification, development and raising up of the (feminine) intuitive aspects of the disciples own mind.    In the Gospels associated with Mary Magdalene it is written: “She speaks to the other disciples about Jesus and what she’s seen, and Peter says, ‘I don’t believe the Lord said these things. These are certainly strange ideas.’ And she says, ‘Well, do you think I made them up? Do you think I’m lying about the Lord?’ ”   In this allegorical representation, the linear-rational aspect of mind is represented in Peter's inability to comprehend what the feminine-intuitive as represented in the allegorical personification of Mary Magdalene reveals.   And since these intuitive visions, impressions and wisdom does not support the linear reasoning of the masculine vision of this world and Creation, in most people they are rejected. 

In the introduction to the book Secrets of Mary Magdalene, Prof. Elain Pageles writes and quotes the Gospel of Philip: Simultaneously, the Gospel of Philip celebrates Mary Magdalene as manifesting the divine spirit, which this gospel calls the “virgin who came down” from heaven. When Christians spoke of Jesus “born from a virgin,” this author agrees—but refuses to take it literally. So some people, he says, take this literally to mean that Jesus’ mother became pregnant apart from any man, apart from sexual intercourse. But this, he says, is the “faith of fools” who fail to comprehend spiritual matters (although, as we note, it can be seen in the birth narratives offered in the New Testament gospels of Matthew and Luke). Instead, continues the Gospel of Philip, Jesus was born physically, just as all humans, as the son of biological parents. The difference, says the author of this gospel, that he was also “born again” in baptism--born spiritually to become the son of the Father above, and of the heavenly Mother, the Holy Spirit.   That one of the primary objectives of this life is to bring about and achieve the next stage of birth -- a non-physical birth which is allegorically portrayed as a Virgin Birth -- should be of primary importance to all people.   

In the same way that Peter as representing the (male) linear-rational spheres of mind states of the intuitive visions and wisdom of Mary Magdalene:  "...These are certainly strange ideas", it is a fact that it is the lopsided development of what Einstein portrayed as the linear-rational servant that inhibits the development of the intuitive-gift -- i.e., as seen in Einstein's statement that “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”     Without the balanced development of the intuitive, the linear-rational which only senses outwardly, arrives as a point where it becomes what can be portrayed as flat-lined -- which in turn inhibits the further development of the linear rational servant from itself maturing beyond organic limitations.   And herein lies the great obstacle to human development that linear-intellectuals don't at all understand -- i.e., the reality that the linear programming of the mind which is the agenda of our educational systems -- including the reading of books and traditional study -- only serves to inhibit the development of the intuitive spheres of mind -- and it is the lack of balance between the inward looking intuitive and the outward looking linear-rational that inhibits the development of the mind beyond a certain very shallow organic physical level of maturity.    Further, what we are presented with are a number of paradoxes that have confronted man since he first stepped foot on the earth.   Thus, these proverbial questions must be confronted: Is the mind of a child empty?   Or, does a great source of knowledge already exist within the mind of the child that must be tapped into?   Do you instruct a child through rote programming in the manner of our educational systems today?   Or do you guide the child into an environment of self-discovery?

The problem is seen in the fact that the linear-rational servant can only look outwardly -- and not only remains totally ignorant of an inner reality that it is blind to -- but it demands that all of mankind ignore and even reject the higher causal reality that can only be sensed and understood through the development of the intuitive centers of mind.   Like the tip of the proverbial iceberg, what is observed protruding out of the water is very small in relation to the immense body of ice that is beyond man's normal scope of vision lying beneath the water line.   And because our culture and linear learning environment actually inhibits the development of the intuitive, it remains atrophied and latently embryonic and immature.   This is seen in the fact that when the leaders of the Jews (Pharisees) asked Jesus when the Kingdom of God would come upon the earth in the manner that they believed it would, he told them that it would never come upon the earth so as to be seen with their eyes (that look outwardly), because the Kingdom already exists within them (see http://GateOfEden.com ) -- and it is accessed through the development of the intuitive spheres of mind that are positioned to look inwardly -- which then must be balanced with the outward looking rational linear.

In the parable of the prodigal son who is subject to the limited perception and understanding of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), man dwells in a world of illusions (see Plato's Cave) that are an allusion of mind impressed into the allegorical images of nature.   In her book, The Gospel of Mary of Magdala: Jesus and the First Woman Apostle, author Karen L. King writes: "…the Gospel of Mary communicates a vision that the world is passing away, not toward a new creation or a new world order, but toward the dissolution of an illusory chaos of suffering, death, and illegitimate domination. The Saviour has come so that each soul might discover its own true spiritual nature, its ‘root’ in the Good, and return to the place of eternal rest beyond the constraints of time, matter, and false morality."    The error of Karen King is typical, in that in her failure to properly apply the Key of Knowledge, she perceives Mary Magdalene as a flesh and blood woman, not understanding that Mary is representative of the intuitive spheres of mind that must be evolved and raised up, in order to tap into and connect with man's inner Source of Being -- and ultimately the True Prophet.

   The Opening And Unlocking Of The Mind: A recently published book by William A. Donius entitled Thought Revolution: How to Unlock Your Inner Genius, not only provides a degree of confirmation for what is presented in the above subheading entitled Intuitive Mind vs Linear-Rational -- and I point out this book especially because of an important critical review that appears on the Amazon.com web site.  The book description reads: Thought Revolution invites readers to unlock their whole brain to change the way they see themselves and find the truth in whatever challenges them. Encompassing twelve years of research, the book takes readers on an unexpected journey that will set them free-and it all begins with moving the pen from one hand to the other. The technique is called "intuitive" or "nondominant" hand writing and is the basis for this revolutionary approach to making lasting life changes. (Paragraph 2) Tapping the non dominant subconcious right brain through nondominant hand writing, or drawing, can act as a direct pipeline to one's inner truth, open up creative problem-solving abilities, and help people think outside the box. Others have reported improvements in relationships, reduction in stress, better physical health, discovery of hidden talents, deeper spiritual awareness, healing from trauma, breakthroughs in career, accessing inner wisdom, and connection with a higher power. (Paragraph 3) Inside Thought Revolution William A. Donius offers the science behind nondominant hand writing and teaches readers ow to incorporate nondominant hand writing in their own lives. Thought-provoking, easy-to-do exercises and prompts help readers connect mnore fully with the needs of their subconcious right brains and unlock their hidden genius.   

In the article entitled The Cross And The Seat Belt, I explore the reality that while from a purely linear perspective it makes perfect sense to wear a seat belt.   I then demonstrate that what appears on the surface to be purely rational thinking, in fact inhibits the development of the intuitive which is of a primary importance in the development of the mind of the spiritual seeker.    In a subheading of  The Cross And The Seat Belt  article entitled Directed Impressions, I explore the reality that you not only have the innate ability to sense impending events, but by developing the intuitive spheres of mind and then learning how to project one's thoughts to others, that in many instances you can actually avert what the linear-minded people portray as accidents.    But I quoted the above book review specifically because of a customer review by Gary J. Belis on the Amazon.com web site which states: I have just finished reading this book online, and I must say the title does not capture its essence. It should be called "Lies Your Left Brain Tells You." I have tried writing answers to key questions with my nondominant hand as the book recommends, and it is truly amazing just what my underutilized right brain wants to tell me. The book is an easy read, written in an engaging manner. That title led me to believe it was going to be a boring textbook. It isn't. Probably a lie told by my left brain.  And another related review by B. "Cat" Morrow further examines a reality that few understand:  I must admit when I first began reading this I couldn't understand how we could be so adept at telling ourselves lies, AND believing them. However as I kept reading and worked through the exercises provided I realized this is indeed true.  It will take courage to face self-examination, and accept you may be believing things that aren't true, but for those that find the courage to do the work, and follow this line of thinking, there are some amazing revelations in store!    And again in the Product Description on the Amazon UK web site, the crux of the problem is again presented: The Thought Evolution, applies the science to help us learn to think differently. The book cites Donius' experience over the past twelve years and with hundreds of interview subjects in demonstrating how to enable the creative, intuitive right hemisphere to weigh in on our thought processes to help us better understand the obstacles we face and even the lies we may be telling ourselves. Learning to tap into the right brain is similar to learning a new language. But, it is far simpler! Find out what awaits in the subconscious.    

Again we observe the reality portraying what the linear-rational mind perceives and understands as a lie -- at least from a right brain perspective.   In the above noted opposition to first the New York, and then North Carolina seat belt laws as presented in the case of  The Cross And The Seat Belt, when I attempted to present the case that the linear perspective of accidents presented such an incomplete picture of man's true reality, what I presented was immediately dismissed -- and that what I was stating was some sort of cultish mumbo jumbo that made absolutely no sense.   Why?   Because the reality that I was presenting was totally inconceivable to the linear-rational minds of the lawyers and court officers.   And while I eventually prevailed in my opposition to the law, my victory was founded upon Constitutional mandates that the court did not want to oppose.   And sadly, in many respects, this has been the plight of women who by virtue of the feminine powers of mind, are far more intuitive than their male counterparts -- as presented throughout the article The Divine Marriage.    Quoting this web site:

One of the greatest lessons the people of our modern culture must learn is that equal does not mean the same.  Perhaps this is best expressed in the introduction of the long ignored book Brain Sex, by Anne Moir and David Jessel, where they wrote: "Men are different from women. They are equal only in their common membership of the same species, humankind. To maintain that they are the same in aptitude, skill or behaviour is to build a society based on a biological and scientific lie".   The key to the dilemma that confronts us today is further seen in the words of the authors with respect to their opposition to the ideas we teach our children in our modern-day politically correct culture: "What you will read in this book about the differences between men and women may make both sexes angry or smug. Both reactions are wrong. If women have reason to rage, it is not because science has set at naught their hard-won struggle towards equality; their wrath should rather be directed at those who have sought to misdirect and deny them their very essence". The book then goes on to embrace the very real statement that "Women should contribute their specific female gifts rather than waste their energies in the pursuit of a sort of surrogate masculinity. A woman’s greater imagination can solve intractable problems - be they professional or domestic - at one apparently intuitive stroke."   More recently another (female) researcher named Dr Luan Brizendine has authored a book named The Female Mind.   Dr. Brizendine, whose book is based on her own clinical work and analyses of more than 1,000 scientific studies, added: "There is no unisex brain.  Girls arrive already wired as girls, and boys arrive already wired as boys. Their brains are different by the time they're born, and their brains are what drive their impulses, values and their very reality.  I know it is not politically correct to say this but I've been torn for years between my politics and what science is telling us.  I believe women actually perceive the world differently from men.  If women attend to those differences they can make better decisions about how to manage their lives."   These more informed decisions are basically impossible for most women in today's culture because of the biological lie that is being promoted due to political correctness.   The problem is that because we dwell in a world that is generally defined by a male linear perspective, the true nature and depth of the feminine mind is largely an unexplored realm of vast substance and opportunity.   In fact, once this far reaching reality is truly realized, one must begin to acknowledge that even men are severely anchored and inhibited by their own and societies ignorance with respect to the higher purpose and untapped potential of the female mind.  In this respect, woman is the missing element in (male) man's search for God and the meaning of life -- and vise versa.

 

How Different Are Men And Women?

In support of the above there is a growing body of evidence as to just how different men and women are. 

Male and female brains wired differently, scans reveal

(Source: TheGuardian)

Maps of neural circuitry show women's brains are designed for social skills and memory, men's for perception and co-ordination

Scientists have drawn on nearly 1,000 brain scans to confirm what many had surely concluded long ago: that stark differences exist in the wiring of male and female brains.  Maps of neural circuitry showed that on average women's brains were highly connected across the left and right hemispheres, in contrast to men's brains, where the connections were typically stronger between the front and back regions.
Ragini Verma, a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, said the greatest surprise was how much the findings supported old stereotypes, with men's brains apparently wired more for perception and co-ordinated actions, and women's for social skills and memory, making them better equipped for multitasking.
"If you look at functional studies, the left of the brain is more for logical thinking, the right of the brain is for more intuitive thinking. So if there's a task that involves doing both of those things, it would seem that women are hardwired to do those better," Verma said. "Women are better at intuitive thinking. Women are better at remembering things. When you talk, women are more emotionally involved – they will listen more."
She added: "I was surprised that it matched a lot of the stereotypes that we think we have in our heads. If I wanted to go to a chef or a hairstylist, they are mainly men.”

Female brain
 

The findings come from one of the largest studies to look at how brains are wired in healthy males and females. The maps give scientists a more complete picture of what counts as normal for each sex at various ages. Armed with the maps, they hope to learn more about whether abnormalities in brain connectivity affect brain disorders such as schizophrenia and depression.

Verma's team used a technique called diffusion tensor imaging to map neural connections in the brains of 428 males and 521 females aged eight to 22. The neural connections are much like a road system over which the brain's traffic travels.
The scans showed greater connectivity between the left and right sides of the brain in women, while the connections in men were mostly confined to individual hemispheres. The only region where men had more connections between the left and right sides of the brain was in the cerebellum, which plays a vital role in motor control. "If you want to learn how to ski, it's the cerebellum that has to be strong," Verma said. Details of the study are published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Male and female brains showed few differences in connectivity up to the age of 13, but became more differentiated in 14- to 17-year-olds.
"It's quite striking how complementary the brains of women and men really are," Ruben Gur, a co-author on the study, said in a statement. "Detailed connectome maps of the brain will not only help us better understand the differences between how men and women think, but it will also give us more insight into the roots of neurological disorders, which are often sex-related.”

 

In the below subheadings entitled Gender Blindness And The Process Of Birth, and the following subheading entitled The Holographic Pattern Of Sex, I portray man and woman's separateness in the true light of the reality of a Cosmic Ovum And Sperm.    And the true folly of our Feminist based politically correct culture when seen from the perspective of Gloria Steinem's portrayal of "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" -- along with even the suggestion at Harvard that perhaps men and women are inherently different (see Harvard - The Quagmire Of Ignorance) -- where leftist icon Lawrence Summers was ousted as president because he suggested that men and woman might be drawn to different gender-specific intellectual pursuits.    In an article entitled Maneaters - Women who make the world worse (and the men who do what they say) got the best of Larry Summers by Charlotte Allen of the Independent Women's Forum, quotes an essay by a molecular biologist and Royal Society fellow Peter A. Lawrence is quoted: 

“If you say, for example, that women are on average more understanding of others, this can be interpreted as misogyny in disguise. If you state that boys on average are much more likely than girls to become computer nerds, people may react as if you plan to ban all women from the trading rooms of merchant banks. The Cambridge University psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen published research on the ‘male brain’ in a specialist journal in 1997, but did not dare to talk about his ideas in public for several years....One reason for this absurd taboo is that we cannot think objectively because our minds are full of wayward beliefs and delusions — ‘ghosts’....And one of these ghosts is the dogma that all groups of people, such as men and women, are on average the same, and any genetic distinctions must not be countenanced. “Classifying individuals in general terms, he concludes that among men, about 60% have a male brain, 20% have a balanced brain, and 20% have a female brain. Women show the inverse figures, with some 60% having a female brain. Many facts...have their roots in biology and genetics. Here are some examples. First, it is hardly necessary to point out that distinguishing between the contributions of nature and nurture to animal or human behaviour has proved difficult. However, newborn infants (less than 24 hours old) have been shown a real human face and a mobile of the same size and similar colour. On average, boys looked longer at the mobile and girls looked longer at the face....Second, such differences at birth must have developed earlier. One factor is the level of testosterone in the developing brain around three months of gestation, which is higher in males (due to the hormone being produced by the foetus itself). Many studies show that testosterone affects development and behaviour, not only in humans, but also in other mammals. Testosterone sponsors development of the male phenotype, and can influence behaviour even of animals of the same sex. For example, giving older men testosterone specifically improves their ability with those spatial tests on which males normally score higher than females.”

Woman, who is by nature far more intuitive, being the opposite polarity of the linear-male mind, is in fact imbued with this greater intuitive insight in order to enable her to supply and fill in the countless voids that exist in male-logic and linear-vision -- that from the perspective of man's higher soul-reality, is a virtual lie that in many respects is the basis of the analogy of the world of Illusions that hold mankind in the dungeon of Plato's Cave.     And when properly understood, the blindness of the linear-rational mind to the true reality of the (allegorical) forms and symbols of this world, is in fact the basis of Jesus' portrayal of the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).    But the problem is that in the same way that in the reviews of the above noted book the  Thought Revolution: How to Unlock Your Inner Genius, what the linear-left brain perceives is often a lie, the male-dominated linear perspective of mind does not understand the feminine-intuitive perspective, and simply ignores the important insight of most women -- rejecting their insights as feminine foolishness and housewife folly.   Worse yet is the fact that our modern systems of education work to program young girls and suppress their natural feminine intuition, thereby making them what is portrayed in the above as "surrogate men"!    Thus, in the process, these modern systems of institutionalized education flat-line the thinking of the students at a very low level of perception and understanding, and inhibit the people from making any real progress beyond a low-level carnal perception limited to man's organic physical nature.             

If all that was necessary was for people to employ the exercises presented in the foregoing book the Thought Revolution: How to Unlock Your Inner Genius in order to begin to perceive truth -- or, for men to begin to listen to the intuitive insight of women in order to unlock the mysteries of life -- then the solution to the dilemma of the illusions of  Plato's Cave would be rather simple.   But the crux of the problem is far greater than this.   That the male vision is opposite the female -- and that like the sperm and ovum, they are in reality half of each other -- means that while the intuitive perception of reality is opposite that of the linear, it still remains carnal, physically organic, and limited in its paradoxical opposite understanding.   In the following sections I will explore the fact that in the same way that a child needs nurturing -- and must be nourished by the proper food -- the same is true with respect to the mind of mankind that is seeking to bring about the next stage of birth.     Both the linear and the intuitive supply necessary pieces to the puzzle of the greater picture of life that is necessary to being to perceive man's greater soul-reality which embodies our true nature and form -- a nature and form that organic man can't even begin to envision in his very limited physical consciousness.    But since the vast majority of our young children have been ruined even before they have reached an age where true development can be brought about, the whole of our politically correct culture is little more than an adolescent death-trap.  

  Spiritual (Intuitive) Development: One of the primary objectives of the Original Scriptures was the development of the Intuitive spheres of mind that brought about Enlightenment through the eventual Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the Mind -- which enabled the seeker/disciple to transcend the natural barriers of the physical, and be taught directly by God.   But to even begin to accomplish this spiritual transformation of the body and physical consciousness, those spheres of mind associated with the Intuitive had to be developed, and then integrated with the rational-linear at a higher level of man's consciousness and being than his normal organic consciousness would naturally permit.    Thus, in their original condition before being corrupted by the Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), the scriptures were intended to begin the process of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see Expansion Of Mind) that would enable the seeker/disciple to become enlightened and be taught by God -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ).   And it was for this reason that the historical man Jesus commanded his disciples not to be called teacher or rabbi -- i.e., "But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have One Teacher, and you are all brethren" (Matt 23:8 RSV) -- and this was commanded, because ultimately, there is Only One True Teacher, and that is the True Prophet -- often referred to as the Logos, the Son of God, and the Teacher of Righteousness.    And that those lost prodigal sons who look to other men as their teacher, rabbi or leaders, will be greatly deceived and misguided, is why the disciple Peter in the Clementine Homilies declared: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.  (see The Search For The True Prophet/Logos/Son Of God Within One's Own Mind And Being).     

If we pose the question as to how blind to man's higher soul and spiritual reality the linear-rational mind is?   Both the blindness, mental impairment and dysfunction is so severe, that the person who is limited to normal linear reasoning, is portrayed as being dead in the scriptures (see The Dead Know Nothing).    Thus, the lopsided development of the linear-rational which today is brought about in our cultural educational systems by pseudo-intellectuals who only utilize and develop the linear-outward spheres of mind -- and by the very nature and purpose of instruction, totally suppress the intuitive spheres of mind -- inhibit the whole development of mind to the degree that the students become intellectually flat-lined and totally incapable of grasping higher understanding of both self, and the life the person is living.   That in their original condition prior to being corrupted by the Church (see http://BibleCorruption.com ), the scriptures which are allegorical (see An Inconvenient Truth) contained important teachings and catalysts that developed the intuitive spheres of mind -- catalysts which began the process of connecting the seeker/disciple with both the higher reality of their soul and what the original disciples called The True Prophet who was and is the One Teacher that Jesus said to seek out -- it was this enlightening of the mind of the seeker/disciple that was the very purpose of the teachings of Jesus which were originally called TheWay.    And thus, the development of the intuitive by virtue of the important teaching that were removed by the Church, and the catalysts of the allegorical scriptures, brought about the fulfillment of the original objectives portrayed in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.    

How blind to the true meaning of the scriptures and the realities of life is the linear-rational mind which is associated with the pseudo-intellectualism that is promoted by our culture and taught in our schools today?  In the subheading of Flawed Human (Linear) Reasoning in the article An Inconvenient Truth it reads that: And that human reasoning, the quasi-religious dogma of man's religions and his philosophical schools of thought, are always in error by virtue of their lack of balanced development between the linear and intuitive spheres of mind -- which lack of balance invokes a blindness to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- which reality Paul presented in the words: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." (Col 2:8 NIV).    And the degree that the seeker of Truth is to abandon and reject the dogmatic and philosophical (linear) reasoning of this world, is further presented in the words of the Apostle Peter who is quoted in the writings of his disciple Clement: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).     

If neither the true meaning of the allegorical scriptures, or the realities of life itself, can be understood using "...the understanding of our own mind" when man is dependent upon the linear-rational spheres of mind, only then can man begin to understand why the Apostle Paul warned that the believer should not depend upon human logic and reasoning "...which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." -- which to their own detriment the Church has ignored this warning.     What the Apostle Paul portrays as "...the basic principles of this world..." is the linear-reasoning which physicist Niels Bohr stated that “…The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.” These “…mechanical conceptions” make reference to Darwin and the Theory of Evolution which is born out of the blindness of human linear reasoning and logic.   A blindness portrayed by William A. Tiller in the words: “The present scientific establishment has grown somewhat fossilized by its current world picture and is locked into a view of reality that has outlived its usefulness. It has begun to limit mankind’s growth and has so increased its sense of specialization, separateness, materiality, and mechanical computer-like functioning that it is in real danger of self-extermination” (see Science Proves Religion).   So the question becomes will mankind's rejection of the reality portrayed by the modern physicist -- as well as his abandonment with the original purpose of the Gospel teachings -- cause him to go the way of the dinosaur and bring him to the precipice where his reliance upon linear-reasoning has placed him "...in real danger of self-extermination”

  The Biblical Code: It is important to understand the reality presented in the Gospels when Jesus spoke to the multitudes in parables -- a system of allegories designed to conceal the inner meaning from the multitude of hearers, while permitting only a select group of hearers to understand the esoteric truths that were being revealed (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   And when his disciples asked Jesus why he spoke in enigmatic parables, and did not speak plainly to the people?   Jesus said of his disciples: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).   The word "...outside" , denotes those who Jesus portrayed as dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   And the word translated secret, is the same word translated mystery at the foregoing link ( Mystery Of The Gospel), and makes reference to an esoteric knowledge that is beyond man's organic "natural" comprehension, is a reality that few modern believers or the critics of religion have been able to come to terms with (see An Inconvenient Truth).   Yet, in a state of spiritual denial, the modern Church attempts to ignore the implications of what these words convey.    In explanation of the above teachings of Jesus, the Wycliffe Bible Commentary writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”

Why and how is "...spiritual understanding ...restricted to those who have become spiritual”???   Because higher spiritual perception and understanding is dependent upon Wholeness of Mind.   The physical consciousness of the body only supports the development of mind that pertains to the physical.   The linear spheres of mind in their natural organic state, can only assess outward phenomena -- phenomena that the linear spheres of mind can only perceive a very limited and partial perception of.   But even more importantly, when Jesus is portrayed as only speaking in parables to the multitude of hears -- which means that among those who are portrayed as the multitudes, those who possessed the innate ability to understand the deeper spiritual meaning of the parable, were those who also possessed the innate potential to be awakened by the parable -- while the majority of the hears remained bound by human organic reasoning that made it impossible for them to understand the true meaning of the parabolic teachings.   And while the reader should be moved to immediately question why the few, possessed an ability to perceive and understand, what the vast majority of the multitude of hearers did not, and could not -- few students of the scriptures even possess the insight to question what makes these few different from the rest of the multitude of hearers?   In fact, the modern Christian who is anchored by the fourth century manmade dogma of the pagan Church of Rome, is simply incapable of answering this ultra-important question.    Where it can be said that the 4th century Church of Constantine put to death the Spirit of the Church (see above The Corruption Of The Church), it's Spiritual Castration which totally alienated the congregation of believers from comprehending even what was left of a corrupted and spiritually sanitized New Testament (see Bible Corruption), was implemented in the 6th century.   As an example of how the Christian world was literally forced to adhere to the dogma of the secular priests and emperors, when the doctrine of the pre-existent soul was outlawed by the Emperor Justinian, the Britannica confirms that the emperor then forced his will upon the Church when he "...banished the pope to Egypt , and afterwards to an island, until he accepted the Council, which he ultimately did" (see Teachings On Pre-Existent Soul ).    After relenting to the will of the emperor, and finely accepting the decree of the emperor after seven months of imprisonment, it is reported that the pope met with an untimely death before he could even return to the Vatican.    And while it is true that most of the modern-day doctrines of the Church was forced upon the Christian world in this same violent manner -- and the vast majority of modern-day believers are all victims of what has come to be known as the Stockholm Syndrome -- the removal of this important original teaching has had such far ranging implications, that it has become impossible for modern believers and critics alike to even begin to get a valid sense of the original Gospel meaning and objectives.    The modern Church is faith-based -- founded upon blind-faith -- because the reader lacks the necessary tools to even get a sense of the very purpose of the original teachings of TheWay.   And this secular imposed intervention where the Christian world was literally forced to succumb to the decrees of the emperors, has had the far ranging effect of spiritually castrating the Church.  

Without an understanding of the journey of the preexistent soul and the manner in which the universal symbols in both the scriptures and the parables can act as catalysts which awaken the hearer or reader, it is impossible for the reader/hearer to comprehend even how this system of allegory and parabolic instruction works.   And in not understanding how the system of instruction works, it is not at all understood how the symbolism employed within the parables and scriptures were designed to act as catalysts which initiated impressions and intuitive knowledge from within the mind of the person -- originating from the other side of the barrier between the person in this physical world, and their higher soul-self that dwells in a non-physical spiritual world (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).   Those who have in their more distant past developed their mind and being through "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind) -- are in the present able to receive and comprehend the spiritual meaning of the symbols of both the parables and scriptures.    Which means that everything is dependent upon the necessary development of mind -- and especially those intuitive spheres which enable the person to connect with their soul and inner source of being that exists beyond the barrier of the physical.  This development through "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” is necessary to fulfill the Gospel teaching to seek out only The One Teacher which the disciple Peter portrayed as The True Prophet (see Taught In Parables - The Key Of Knowledge).    And that the whole of this world which is blind to the cause and the Laws that bring about and orchestrates all events in this world -- a condition of blind ignorance that Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- is what necessitates the opening the inner door to learn the true meaning of the events of this world, as well as the true meaning of the catalyst symbols used in the scriptures -- i.e., the warning of Peter: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without" (see Flawed Human Linear Reasoning).   What this means is that no one -- i.e., either believer or unbeliever -- will understand the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- a meaning that is beyond organic human comprehension -- unless the individual person has been enlightened by what the disciples portrayed as the One Teacher and True Prophet, as to the true meaning.   Why?   Because "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”  -- and the very purpose of both the scriptures, and the Laws that control all events in this world, is to bring this higher understanding about in the life of the worthy seeker/disciple. 

The Apostle Peter warned the seeker/disciple not to rely upon human perception and comprehension in their quest to understand the meaning of the scriptures -- and it is this same rejection of human linear reasoning and the quest to learn from the True Prophet the meaning of the scriptures, that develops the intuitive spheres of mind and prepares the seeker/believer to understand the Forces and Laws that bring about and orchestrate all events of this world.   In the same way that we have the ability to learn and acquire the ability to read -- and we do so by learning to interpret the symbols of letters and words -- all of life is written in a language that we must learn to interpret the symbols of -- and I often portray this as the language of the soul that the Key of Knowledge must be applied to.    Because the Atheist and/or the linear-rational minded person who sees only the outer physical aspects of this material world, remains blind to both the causal factors of what is experienced -- as well as the Laws and Forces which present all events to each person -- and remains ignorant of the choices presented to him/her within the labyrinth of one's scripted life -- the Atheist, the linear-rational, as well as the person who remains undeveloped,  believes these encounters are the result of accident, luck, the unknown, human nature, animal compulsion and/or natural occurrences and selection.   This is of course a lie promoted by blind pseudo-authorities who have been alienated from their own higher soul-nature -- and as such, they lead the people in the wrong direction.   Those few who develop the intuitive spheres of mind are able to not only escape what Jesus portrayed as The Prison and the blind ignorance of the Outer Darkness -- a condition whereby the person sees only what is portrayed as the illusions of Plato's Cave -- but also perceive the causal factors of each encounter -- and the Laws which present to us our choices within the labyrinth.  Part of us -- i.e., our higher soul-self that is not manifest in this world -- not only knows the meaning of the symbols of life -- but also the causal factors initiated by the Laws which are presented to us in the manner of a labyrinth that scripts every aspect of our life.  

The purpose of this world is the evolution and advancement of the soul of man -- and one of the primary objectives that is necessary to bring this evolution about in the reality of the individual, is to develop the intuitive spheres of mind that permits one to perceive and comprehend what lies beyond the curtain of the "outer darkness", and begin to develop the ability to understand the whole encounter of life that the individual experiences.   The scriptures are written in a series of allegorical symbols (see An Inconvenient Truth) that act as a catalyst which has the potential to bridge the inner divide between the person we are in this world, and our higher soul-reality -- and as the person begins to advance beyond the physical organic mind, they begin to perceive that all of material nature is itself imbued with symbols of mind and consciousness impressed into the forums of nature that we interact with (see The Allusion Of The Forms Of Matter).     And when it is understood that the Source of all that we see in the material world is in the (un-seen Etheric) Field that modern physicist have now proven surrounds all physical forms in this world (see The Folly Of Darwinism -- and Science Proves Religion) -- then as the seeker begins to unlock the allegorical language of the scriptures which act as catalysts within his own mind and being, the same esoteric reality of nature itself begins to unfold to the mind of the disciple of TheWay -- i.e., (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..." (Gospel of Thomas). 

  Religion As A System Of Education: When Jesus promised that his disciples will know the Truth that will set them free (John 8:32), he was not portraying the plight of blind faith and belief in manmade dogma that has bound and enslaved the modern Church today -- but rather, that his followers will become immersed in a system of spiritual development known as TheWay, that will evolve and Anoint (Messiah/Christ) their mind in order to reveal all the Mysteries of Creation to their elevated and enlightened understanding.   The fact of the matter is that while those who are portrayed as teachers, in reality even know that they have no real answers as to the meaning and mysteries of life.   So in reality it can be said that those who teach are merely dispensing cultural and philosophic speculation to others, regardless of the fact that those who teach possess no real knowledge. 

If we even begin to ask the question: How important is the development of the latent intuitive spheres of mind associated with Mysticism?    What is today known as faith-based religion is portrayed in the Bible as the elementary teachings designed specifically for entry-level congregations of believers.    What the Apostle Paul portrayed as the "testimony" of Christ, was set forth to the people he converted as a starting point.  And when it is understood that the objectives of the original teachings of TheWay were in fact parallel to that of our modern educational systems -- i.e., "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” -- with the objective being to learn directly from the Source of all Knowledge that Creation was brought into existence to bring about in the eternal reality of the soul of mankind -- then it can also be understood that if the objective of our educational system is to obtain a university and graduate degree, then the beginning of the educational process starts with pre-school or kindergarten -- i.e., an entry-level environment which is necessary to prepare the student to embrace the process of higher learning.   In the same way that you can't enroll an immature student in a college or university, so too must entry-level Christians be exposed one step and level at a time in a religious-based process that brings about their own spiritual maturity and attainment.    And this design and objective of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay is explored in the chapter of the article The Three Lies entitled The Mystery Of The Gospel .    And it is further demonstrated that the pre-Nicene Church (before 325 CE) very much resembled a spiritual healing center that was totally focused on the objective of the development of the seeker/disciple, one level at a time, of the congregation of believers (see The Secret Doctrine ).   To the degree that the Church was accused of being a Secret System that taught the spiritually mature a totally different doctrine than the congregation of believers.   And in reply to the allegations against the Church by the pagan philosopher Celsus, it was noted that the elementary doctrines which survive today as the foundation of faith-based Christianity, was said to be “...preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (Origen Contra Celsum).    So what happened?   In the article  The Secret Doctrine, the pre-Nicene Church is presented in its finest moments as a three-tier healing system which served the needs of the people at every level of the process.  But what happened?  In time the proverbial saying that the inmates took over the institution came to pass -- and the charlatan political leaders of the lower echelon put to death the genuine spiritual healers who were the original core and spiritual essence of the Church.   Resulting in the reality that the entry-level beliefs became the only surviving teachings, when the original Ebionite Nazirenes and Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians were hunted down and murdered because they refused to accept the doctrines of the Emperor of Pagan Rome who ruled over the Church beginning in the fourth century.

Based upon the dogmatic folly of pseudo-authorities such as Martin Luther who promote the thinking that you have completed the process even before you have begun -- i.e., the dogma that once you say your Jesus-prayer, that you have fulfilled all Gospel requirements -- these easily proven fraudulent doctrines  (see The Lie & The Ten Minute Test) are easily demonstrated to be spiritually counterfeit.   Again, under examination, we can easily perceive a parallel relationship between the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay, and our modern-day cultural educational systems.   When a child is first introduced into the system as an entry-level student, what is presented to the child is a vision of the final result where the graduate student is able to become a doctor, lawyer, engineer, computer programmer or some other professional.   The child is told that if they ardently embrace the objectives of the educational system -- prepare their minds through proper study and application -- that they can arise and fulfill all cultural expectations and find great success in their lives.   From the vision presented to the entry-level student, the promise of success is never presented from the perspective of the dropout -- or those who flunk out and fail to take advantage of the learning environment that the educational system provides to the student.   It is not at all suggested that you can hangout in school without study and application, and collect your university degree by merely putting in your time and going through the motions of going to school.   And what is not at all understood  today, is the fact that the promise of the scriptures is parallel to that of the promise presented to the child who enters our educational system -- in that, the promise of the scriptures portrays the reality of those who sincerely engage and complete the process of the original objectives of  "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”, will attain the promised results -- and this promise cannot be achieved by those who become spiritual dropouts.    But as the original teachings became institutionalized under secular control, charlatan priests and clergy (see The Example Of Paul Of Samosata at http://nazirene.org/unfaithful2.htm#clergy ) peddled dogmatic shortcuts that they said eliminated the need to strive and fulfill the original spiritual objectives of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” -- with a greater number of dogmatic dispensations being invented in order to circumvent the process of higher development --  to the degree where the focus of the Church became instant salvation for the purpose of acquiring mammon and the political power of the secular priests and clergy.   And when the remaining spiritual core objected, they were condemned as heretics, hunted down and murdered. 

  The Trinity And The Divine Pattern Of Creation: From a foundational background perspective, there is a great deal of historical information in the in-depth article The Three Lies beginning at the subheading on the Logos -- which leads into what is arguably the most important suppressed and misunderstood teaching on The True Prophet, and the following subheading entitled The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind. While the subject matter is again resumed in the subheading The Holographic Pattern, let me point out that there is a reason why there is a great deal of discussion in that section on American Spirituality which lays the foundation to comprehending the Laws that control all of Creation between the two groupings of headings. And in the subheading following -- i.e., The Trinity And The Divine Pattern Of Creation -- there is further exploration.

DUALISM? What exactly is Dualism? The problem is that few people understand the reality of what is called Dualism -- often portrayed in a negative sense as Persian Dualism, Gnostic Dualism, etc. -- resulting in the fact that not even those who often think of themselves as Gnostic, understand the reality of what they are portraying.  There are certain words that possess a Divine Meaning that is beyond the ability of man to redefine or define from a carnal perspective.   And in the word Gnosis (see The Reality Of Gnosis) is one of those words.   Quoting from the foregoing link: Gnosis is the Greek word meaning Spiritual Knowledge -- and True Gnosis is defined as Knowledge received directly from God.   Gnosis cannot be found in a book -- it cannot be taught by another man or teacher of this world -- and it is representative of a higher spiritual reality that simply cannot be redefined by man.   Gnosis is the Greek word which indicates that revelationary experiential Knowledge received from God -- and cannot be imparted by any other Source.   Which means that when quasi-religious and politically-religious motivated people condemn Gnosis/Spiritual Knowledge as heresy, they are in every way condemning and rejecting the Divine Manna imparted to the most religious and spiritual of mankind, as heresy.    Those who ignorantly condemn Gnosis, condemn the Knowledge of God.    And the fact that, because of the politics of religion and the fact that governments the world over have traditionally used religion as a means to maintain rule and authority over the people, we can begin to understand the very reason why genuine Mystics who have dedicated their lives to seeking Spiritual Knowledge -- defined as Gnosis -- have concealed the means to acquire this Spiritual Knowledge within the written text of the scriptures -- cloaked in allegory, so it would not be revealed to carnal/organic man.

From a higher spiritual perspective, there is really no such thing as Dualism in the manner that the proponents and opponents think -- because Dualism only takes into account the Positive and Negative Powers that are paradoxical opposites which permeate all of Creation. And if we ask: Why is there no such thing as Dualism?  Because even the concept of dualism would omit the most important element of the equation which is what we call the Third-Force Balance.  But going one step further, the paradoxical opposites that constitute Dualism on this Plane, exist in Oneness on a Higher Plane -- and their division in this world always initiates the environment where the third-force reality of Mind is the balance.  Moreover, the conflict of the paradoxical opposites can only be resolved when the third-force (of mind) is raised up to the higher plane where what is Dual in this world exists in Oneness.

If the bottom horizontal base of the triangle represents the duality in the earthly plane, then this duality can only be harmonized and overcome in the development of the upper point where the two exist as One on a higher plane.   If the horizontal base represents the perception and understanding from the limited reality of the earth-plane, then the elevated point which is able to not only perceive reality from a higher plane -- but also without the duality of the lower earth-plane -- posses an enlightened vision and understanding that is not organic to the duality of the earth.    One of the primary obstacles that confronts seekers, is seen in the fact that to achieve this higher vision where the duality of the earth is overcome, the third-force balance must be raised up.   Therefore, from a purely cultural perspective, what would be commonly understood as the traditional consensus balance of opposites (male/female) on the horizontal line of the earth plane, would only produce a third-force balance on the same horizontal earth plane.    And thus, the majority of religious paths attempt to ignore the duality in the earth -- or rectify this duality -- by seeking the spiritual as portrayed in the upper most point, without understanding the nature of that elevated point of mind and being.  

In the same way that the soul is asexual -- and is a Being of Light that is pure intellect and consciousness -- our true self that exists on a soul-level is not polarized to male of female or any other duality -- and yet, the enlightened vision of reality is the product of the absolute balance of duality.   In Jewish Mysticism, Eve did not come into being when formed from the rib of Adam -- but rather, Eve always existed before being separated.   In the first Creation Account, man was created from the beginning male and female in the image of God -- i.e., "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" (Gen 1:27 KJV) -- which indicates that what is allegorically portrayed as Eve always existed within the reality of the One.    And that to even exist in this world, what exists must be in accord with the Divine Pattern -- and in the same way that man and woman exists in duality, so too does even every thought that is generated by man and woman.   And only when these thoughts are balanced and made whole across the spectrum of male and female, can the third-force balance that exists from an enlightened higher soul-perspective exist.

In the same way that the polarities of male and female are representative of the pattern of duality in the earth, the very thoughts and mental impressions -- in addition to the (spiritual) vital energies or life-force -- what exists within the reality of man and woman  in a state of division, must be overcome and raised up to a soul-level of being, in order to eat the fruit of the Tree of Life which is portrayed in the diagram at the right.   The Tree of Duality (aka The Forbidden Tree of Knowledge of Good And Evil), is representative of the two outer columns which are male/female in relation to each other.   And the only way to overcome this duality, is to properly engage it -- evolve it -- and restore the male and female to a condition of Oneness and Wholeness.   Thus, the Kingdom can only be restored as presented in the Second Epistle of Clement where Jesus teaches on the coming of the Kingdom in the words: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”    In the same way that there was no Tree of Duality in the first Creation account of Genesis -- and this duality that brings death is the result of the Laws -- only when the Laws are overcome, can the Kingdom be restored within the prodigal sons and daughters. 

While there have always been entry-level pseudo-Gnostics who have preached an earthly-evil and heavenly-good doctrine based upon fragmentary understandings, the Gnostics who truly know the truth and reality of mankind, stated the necessity of evolving the earthly or ego-personalities which are often portrayed as false-personalities, in order to develop the essence-self or soul-impression in Gospel of Thomas saying 84.   And thus, the earthly, or ego-self, must become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, in order for the essence-self or soul-image to develop and evolve to it's full potential as portrayed in the words: “…multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times” (Mark 4:8 NIV) the soul-image or essence-self which was implanted in the body at conception.   If the ego or false personalities are the expression of the earthly centers, then the refining of the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, is representative of the development of the lower centers -- and ultimately the earthly becoming the bride of the heavenly opposite -- coming together in the Center.

It is important to recognize that while you can't get to the upper point on the heavenly plane that is beyond your reach as organic man -- if you understand and are willing to apply the natural Laws of Creation and Spiritual Alchemy, you can make the lower point reflect the upper, which enables their joining.    Therefore, the lower point as portrayed in the Star of David at the left, must be purified and evolved to the degree that it merges with it's heavenly opposite.  

Once properly understood, the threefold reality which the pseudo-Gnostic, the monk or yogi attempts to tap into by the suppression of the lower nature, and the meditating on the Light emanating through the sixth center above and between the eyes, can be used to demonstrate the failings of the path of both the monk and yogi who rely upon meditation to achieve their ecstatic states of illumination and what they portray as Christ Consciousness via the Light that enters the body and mind through that center.    Thus we must ask: Why not the topmost seventh center?   And it is in the understanding of this crucial question, that the secret to the key of all of Creation is revealed.   The top three centers in the head are the heavenly centers -- and the sixth center is the balance of the fifth and seventh spiritual centers (aka chakras).    The amount of Light that has the potential to illumine the mind, is the result (or fruit) of the balance of the fifth and seventh spiritual centers -- which balance is manifest in the sixth center.   And herein lies the problem -- i.e., part of us is manifest in the lower vibrations associated with the earth and earth-consciousness -- and the higher reality of the soul or soul-self, cannot even be approached, without the Wholeness of the seven spiritual centers -- which cannot be balanced without the evolved balance of mind as portrayed in the diagram of the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life with the Star of David overlain.    

In a summary, if the triangle above represents the dilemma from the perception of man on the earth-plane with the horizontal duality that must be satisfied by the third-force point of the heavenly plane -- and the vast number of religions attempt to overcome the dilemma by negating and getting above the mind by seeking that higher point to the exclusion of the lower -- then the True (Gnostic) Spiritual Seeker who understands the Cosmology of Mind, embraces an opposite path.   As presented in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, the teachings of TheWay strives to develop and evolve the lower point by making the reflective earth ego-self the "good ground".    And this is the objective of allegory of the Torah and the manifestation of the lower animal appetites that must be evolved and perfected, in the AskMoses.com portrayal of the Final Temple.   And it is the evolved development and perfection of these lower centers, that embodies TheCall to the parable of the Wedding Feast, wherein each who comes to TheCall, must have on the appropriate "wedding garment" -- which signifies the evolved perfection of the lower earthly spiritual centers.    And this is why the Gospel of Thomas is consumed with the development of self as seen in the wisdom: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".   The self that the seeker must find, is the indwelling soul-self that is the focus of the True Self in the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image), and this can only be achieved through the Wholeness of an evolved mind that brings about the next stage of birth.    Again, we see the relationship between the lower earthly point that is the solution to the upper heavenly duality, in conjunction with the upper heavenly point that is the solution to the earthly duality, and when evolved Wholeness is achieved, how the perfected fruit of the Tree of Life is portrayed in the symbol of the Star of David.  

In the same way that the sixth spiritual center (chakra) is the balance between the fifth and seventh heavenly spiritual centers in the head -- and the second spiritual center (chakra) is the balance of the lowest first and the third spiritual (sex) centers -- thus, we have an upper heavenly triad, a lower earthly triad, and it is the fourth spiritual center in the middle which is often allegorically portrayed as the Son of Man in the scriptures, which is the balance of what is portrayed as heaven and earth.    The totality of mind is the balance between the seven spiritual centers and the physical body -- and the mind is manifest in the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life.   And this is the primary reason why the paths of the monk and yogi teach the need to get above the mind -- not being able to engage the mind and evolve it to Wholeness, because of the negation of the lower centers.    The twelve tribes of Israel have absolutely nothing to do with an historical people -- but rather, represent  an allegorical portrayal of the mind as patterned in the Tree of Life -- as is the higher presentation of the twelve disciples an allegorical portrayal of the perfected mind in the Gospels.    And this is why Paul warned the Galatians who were attempting to embrace Jewish ritualistic ways, stated to them: “Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?” And then Paul goes on to explain to those who want to attempt to read the written word literally, in an historical context as Christians do today: “For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory” (Gal 4:21-24 KJV).

Not only are the lower three earthly centers the paired opposites of the upper three heavenly centers -- but the spiritual centers and associated spheres of mind are paired across the spectrum of gender as manifest in male and female.    But this is not apparent unless you come to understand the holographic reality of man and woman as the cosmic sperm and ovum that must achieve the next stage of birth.   Moreover, while in our divided reality as man or woman we exist as an ego-self, or embryonic soul-image, our true being is manifest in the higher reality of our soul, or soul-self that is the Being of Light encountered in the Near Death Experience (NDE).    In the same way that a sperm or ovum is not representative of the whole person, we are not representative of the wholeness of our soul or higher soul-self.   And because the womb of our physical mother's is simply not the environment necessary to develop the mind and bring about the next stage of birth, our soul-image is connected in a fetus that is born into this world -- divided across the spectrum of cosmic ovum and sperm in the womb of Mother-Earth -- which world presents to us the necessary environment to bring about the expansion of mind and consciousness in the quest to initiate the next stage of soul-birth.   And man and woman who possess the potential to initiate and fulfill the Laws which bring about this next stage of birth, must develop those areas of mind that are beyond the level of organic consciousness.   

If we draw a vertical line through the middle of the triangle from to top bottom, we can begin to grasp the solution with respect to the Laws that must be overcome.   The two horizontal points on the base of the triangle, are imbedded in the outer columns of the Tree of Duality -- and for this duality to be overcome, the angles must be equal and reversed with respect to the Laws that will bring about the evolution of the center point.    Where normal male/female physical and emotional interaction will remain earth-bound with the third-force balance remaining of the horizontal plane, when a Husband and Wife work on evolving the mind and thinking of each other, as both male and female in harmonic balance -- while evolving that third-force which is the sum of that union of "one flesh" -- while seeking the higher truth of mind that is manifest in their soul, and the higher reality of the Kingdom that is manifest in their spiritual nature -- then the duality is overcome in the Third-Force balance, and the Alchemical Transformation is brought about through the application of the Laws and Forces of Creation which manifest Completion within the Divine Marriage.  

The objective is to elevate one's mind and being to the higher soul-plane of reality.   One of the problems is seen in the fact that there is no duality of male of female on the soul-plane -- and yet, our higher soul-plane is the result of all duality of male and female raised up in perfect balance and wholeness.    Our higher soul-self is neither male nor female -- and this higher reality cannot be reached when our thoughts and mindset are imbued with the duality of male or female -- i.e., the fruit of the Tree of Duality.    Yet, within the environment of a Divine Marriage where male and female have been merged into "one flesh" (Matt 19:6), this duality of mind and being can be overcome -- and the original pattern of Adam/Eve manifest within the reality of Husband and Wife. 

In order to accomplish this transformation, the Husband and Wife must seek to make themselves a Holy and Consecrated Final Temple -- where the lower appetites of the animal consciousness of the body are raised up to their highest expression as portrayed in the AskMoses.com presentation (see Temple).   And it was this reference to the Law that Jesus stated not one jot or tittle would be negated, till all is Completed.   But an all-important reality of Law must be recognized and observed, if this spiritual alchemical transformation is to be brought about.   In its final manifestation as a triangle, each of the male/female horizontal opposites, are themselves equal points in a triangle that they are themselves part of, and they are the center of.   Which means that the male and female opposites must not only reflect each other in the reverse of their polarities, but that the Laws that form the linear connection on the earth plane, as well as the linear connection which arises into the heavenly plane, must all be equal and harmonically balanced.   And while this may sound complex to many, this is exactly what happens in the physical process of birth which every succeeding level is patterned after.   In the same that the genetics of an embryo must have a perfectly balanced chromosomal balance across the DNA of mother and father, in order for the third-force of the offspring to begin to evolve into an fetus and be born as an infant, so too must the balance of male and female opposite impressions of mind manifest this same harmonic balance between Husband and Wife in a Divine Marriage.

In the subheading on the Logos, we find the Greek term Logos properly defined as the Mind of God. And since the Mind cannot exist outside of the Environment of Positive/Negative Forces which empowers and manifests the Mind as the Third-Force Balance -- then what we are left with at it's core could best be portrayed as the Science Of Mind. Understanding the Science of Mind as it relates to One's Self in the equation of Know Thyself, is called the Cosmology of Mind -- i.e., "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world" (Gospel Of Thomas). Which means that from an Enlightened perspective, even the most advanced of our universities today, dwell in abject poverty. In not understanding the Cosmology of Mind, they remain totally immature in their thinking and mindset.

Thus we must first pose the question: What is mind? And just as important: What is the potential of mind? And then we should add the proverbial questions that are gateways to acquiring the self-knowledge that will begin to crack open the door out of the abyss of intellectual and spiritual poverty: What are the limitations of mind? Can these limitations be overcome? Why is the Mind of God portrayed as All-Knowing? While the organic consciousness of man dwells in dark confusion that is often portrayed as ignorance? Can man's condition be changed and improved? And perhaps most importantly, what must man do to improve his condition? What will he be when man improves his condition? And does it matter? The problem is that the answers to these questions cannot at all be found in our esteemed educational institutions -- and can only be revealed to us by what the first followers of Jesus called, The True Prophet.

Sadly, these are all questions that the majority of people could give a hoot about.  Why? Because organic man who is ruled over by the lower three earthly-kingdoms, is only concerned with satisfying his carnal appetites and needs of the body -- and having become adjusted to his condition, he simply is not motivated to do the necessary labor and dedication to advance himself beyond what is supported by the physical body-vessel.  And this is especially true when said advancement requires a great expenditure of time and effort without carnal or worldly reward.  Man, in his organic condition, demands instant gratification -- i.e., tell me, so I can know the truth.  The reality that the Truth he seeks is beyond his "natural" organic comprehension (see Mystery Of The Gospel) -- and to understand, he must surrender to the transformative process of embracing the Cross in every aspect of his life -- this time and dedication is simply something that he is unwilling to do.  Further, you have the proverbial problem that a little bit of knowledge is often more dangerous than no knowledge at all.  And since man in his organic condition of mind is incapable of understanding his own higher soul and spiritual reality (see Mystery Of The Gospel), all of organic man's perceptions and understanding of God (and the Trinity) is immersed in grave dogmatic error. In fact, dogma can be defined as the assumptions of the carnal mind that is incapable of comprehending both self and God with any real depth of understanding -- and that these assumptions are then encased in hard and fast creeds that inhibit advancement beyond the carnal, is the plight of the Christian today. And (in the fourth century) since the segment of the Church which portrayed themselves as Orthodox and entered into a covenant with the Emperor Constantine who was in every way a barbarian, the whole foundation of the Church's dogmatic understanding remains gravely flawed. When you add to this the fact that one of man's primary organic needs is that of survival, what man portrays as religion has always been hijacked by counterfeit shepherds (priests/clergy) who hand out dispensations to guarantee survival after physical death. But since death in the scriptures portrays the plight of organic man in this world (see The Dead Know Nothing) -- and the essence of all people survive physical death -- then the whole construct of the religion that is preached from the altars, has virtually nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay.

While the true purpose and objectives of religion is to provide answers and solutions to the above questions that the majority of people could care less about pursuing, the fact that counterfeit shepherds always adopt true spiritual holy men such as Jesus, and use them to peddle their dispensations and carnal dogma -- and they do this for their own empowerment and political position within the culture -- then the few who embrace genuine religion and the teachings of holy men for their intended purpose of achieving Enlightenment and the Kingdom, are very quickly turned upon by the counterfeit shepherds as heretics.

No truer statement has ever been made which portrays the plight of the vast majority of mankind than this: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge ...Therefore, my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge" (Hosea 4:6; Isa 5:13). Why? This question is answered in the words: "Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths" (Isa 3:12 NKJ). And if the proclamation in the Gospel of Thomas is true -- i.e., "...if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" -- then the very Essence of Religion IS the Science of Mind. In the subheading entitled The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- which is the process that opens the door enabling the seeker/disciple to be able to answer the above proverbial questions that the vast majority of people could care less about.   And in the same way that the Mind of God (or Logos) is the Third-Force Balance of the Positive/Negative Forces which are often portrayed as Father/Mother God, all of Creation is holographically imbued with this same Divine Pattern. Thus, we not only observe Duality in all things -- i.e., day/night, light/dark, male/female, left/right, heaven/earth, spirit/flesh, etc./etc. -- the very condition and reality of mind is always found in the third-force balance of the two. And when rightly understood, even the parable of the prodigal son presents the duality of the two sons -- with the third-force of mind which is never spoken of, is representative of the missing link that inhibits most people from understanding the esoteric knowledge of mind that is being presented within the construct of the parable. But if this third-force is representative of the soul of man -- with the elder son remaining in the Kingdom of the Father -- then this third-force which is representative of the soul of man, neither incarnates into this world, nor can it dwell in the Kingdom, without the lost prodigal son completing its journey in TheWay -- and by its own volition, returns to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.

Both the Trinity and the Duality of the Divine Pattern can be presented in other ways that can help us to better understand.  While electricity is comprised of positive and negative polarity opposites, where they come together in the electrical appliance can be thought of as the third-force balance. Not to utilize the duality of an electric current, can then be portrayed as The Way Of The Monk -- which path attempts to suppress the development of the mind -- in their words they meditate on the Light coming through the sixth center in an attempt to "get above the mind".   And in the example of the electrical circuit where the two polarities are brought together at the point of the third-force appliance, it must be recognized that the vast majority of people have absolutely no understanding of electrical circuits, and all they know is to throw a switch, and use the appliances that operates off the duality of the current flow.    Which means that while the duality exists, few people understand the application of the threefold reality of the circuit.

When rightly understood, computers are the dumbest things that totally lack intelligence. All computer languages are based upon positive/negative charges, or "1"s and "0"s -- but it is the combination of these "1"s and "0"s -- and the speed with which they can be deciphered -- that gives the computer the appearance of intelligence.  But in the example of the computer, it is the sum and application of the duality of the "1"s and "0"s that manifests the third-force which man utilizes in his virtually countless computer applications.  And while the vast majority of people know how to move a mouse, or engage a key, few have any understanding whatsoever of Computer Science or the integration across the matrix of the computer bus and circuits that cause the images to dance across the screens.  Yet, if you were going to create an application -- or modify your computer to expand its present limitations -- you would have to comprehend Computer Science and the reality of the "1"s and "0"s that make the computer function.

Those few who seek to answer and prevail over the above proverbial questions -- and see to bring about the necessary Heightening And Expansion Of Mind that enables them to comprehend at a higher and more enlightened level than the rest of mankind -- recognize the necessity of comprehending the higher reality of mind -- or, what can be portrayed as the Science of Mind.  And in the same way that the computer programmer must understand the compilation and interactions of the "1"s and "0"s in the workings of a computer circuit and language, so too must the seeker/disciple who is striving to reach his true and ultimate potential, seek to understand the Science of Mind -- and the interaction of the duality and the third-force of mind which they are striving to raise up and expand beyond organic limitations.  And in this respect, it must be recognized that if it were even possible to eliminate the duality of all the "1"s, or the "0"s in the computer language, the computer would be dead and worthless, because it could no longer function.  Therefore, not only must the computer programmer understand and utilize the compilations of these essential "1"s and "0"s, but he must orchestrate them in such away, that together they fulfill the objectives of the program that is being worked on.   In the same way, not only must the seeker/disciple understand the interaction of the negative/positive (male/female) forces that manifest in the third-force of mind -- but he must utilize them in such a manner so as to orchestrate and bring about his higher spiritual objectives.   And it is for this reason that the Sacred Knowledge of the Forces and Laws of Mind was concealed and preserved within the allegorical body of the scriptures (see An Inconvenient Truth) -- and in Jesus' own words, a seeker/disciple needed to properly apply the Key of Knowledge in order to ascertain and utilize this Sacred Knowledge within their own Mind and Being in search of Self and the Inner Kingdom.

In the example of the linear and intuitive spheres of mind that I present in The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind, when it is realized that man's superior intellect is born out of a complexity of mind that is manifest in the twelve often paradoxical (duality) spheres of the Tree of Life (see The Enigma Of The Twelve) -- and that the interaction of these spheres is controlled by Laws that must be perfected and prevailed over -- then it can be understood that the interactions of the "1"s and "0"s in a computer or electrical circut can be seen as child's play in comparison.  And yet, because all of Creation is holographically imbued with this same pattern of Laws and Triune interactive realities, the seemingly complex can be rather simple when what you see is truly understood from the perspective of your own higher soul-reality.

When you buy a computer, it does not come with a book explaining the computer languages and detailed workings of the computer -- which virtually no one who buys a computer could even begin to comprehend.   The original Personal Computer (PC) worked on what was known as the DOS operating system.   But this was found to be too complicated for the average person to use -- so interfaces such as Windows was developed in order to create a point and click environment.   In very much the same way, the textual body of the scriptures do not even attempt to present the great body of esoteric knowledge that only the sincere and dedicated seeker/disciple must know to prevail and bring about the higher objectives of Creation within the individual.  In the same way that the users guide of a computer only conveys the simple interactions that make the computer function and animate the images that are danced across the screen, the written text of the Gospels convey to the believer the proper mindset and lifestyle necessary to begin to be worthy of being a disciple of TheWay.   It can be said therefore, that the literal text of the Gospels is representative of an very preliminary point and click environment that is intended to prepare the faith-based believer to begin to progress beyond a very elementary path that is intended to bring about a highly evolved condition and environment of maturity, wholeness and balance within the mind and body of the seeker/disciple.  In a recent legal case which I portray as the Cross and the Seat Belt, I begin my explanation of the true cause of accidents by exploring what can be called The Conditions Of One's Birth - Life - And Death. The fact that there is no such thing as an accident -- and every event in this world has a pre-existing cause -- from a seat belt perspective is synonymous with stating that the solution to water pollution, is not to drink water.  

The primary objective of the written text of the Gospels -- i.e.,. the human users manual -- is to change one's condition so that the believer is then prepared to begin to embrace the higher reality of the soul and spirit. Yet, the counterfeit shepherds who preach from the pulpits of the Churches peddled the dogma that they have a dispensation, and it is not necessary to embrace the mindset and lifestyle presented in the Gospels -- even when the cultural lifestyle they are presently living is openly condemned in the scriptures (see TheLie).  As stated in the article An Inconvenient Truth, all scriptures are allegorical -- with important esoteric knowledge that is of no use to the believer, concealed and preserved within the allegorical text of the scriptures.

In many respects the New Testament was written to free the people from enslavement to the ancient Mystery Religion known as Judaism -- and ultimately, all the Mystery Religions of the old world.  When the Gospels were originally written, there existed many important and essential truths written literally in the body of the text. But because the carnal Christians who called themselves Orthodox, did not possess the depth of mind to even begin to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and spirit, and the Kingdom of God which is within -- they either removed or edited out these important teachings that are essential to walk in TheWay (see The Corruption Of The Church). In the manner of carnal people, their primary concern was the satisfaction of their body appetites -- and the concept and necessary dedication of becoming a student/disciple of the Science of Mind -- i.e., picking up one's own cross and travailing in TheWay -- was something that they condemned as heresy. Their counterfeit shepherds who made a living out of dressing in robes and dispensing ritual and dogmatic dispensations intended to provide the masses of people salvation from physical death, used their armies to hunt down the heretics who maintained that their dogma was a fraud, and their ritual dispensations were worthless. And with the removal of the objective which Jesus commanded with respect to learning only from the One Teacher and True Prophet that Jesus taught to seek out within them (see True Prophet) -- the throwing away of the Key of Knowledge -- and the removal of the teachings on the pre-existant soul (see The Spiritual Castration Of The Church) -- the Church itself has been transformed into a whitened sepulcher that has been dogmatically rendered a tomb of death. Yet, in their folly, they assume that they can understand the higher reality, Laws and Forces that animate and manifest Creation.

The Universal Voice of the Mystic has always stated to mankind: If you want to see and understand the esoteric realities that I have seen and experienced, then you must do as I have myself done -- and there are no shortcuts of dispensations. Those who do not pick of their own cross and travail in TheWay, are not worthy to be taught by the One Teacher that Jesus said to seek out (see True Prophet) -- and thus, they dwell in the abyss of intellectual and spiritual poverty: "...if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty". And herein likes the crux of the problem -- i.e., to understand the Science of Mind and the Trinitarian Foundation of the Divine Pattern of Creation, one must begin to change their condition and create within themselves the necessary spiritual environment which in the allegory of the scriptures is portrayed as the Final Temple. And in this respect, the necessary knowledge which the Church suppressed and destroyed when it entered a covenant with Rome, is presented in The Three Lies and its associated links. But to bring about the necessary transformation of self into the Final Temple that enables the seeker/disciple to enter within the Holy of Holies with themselves and enter the Inner Kingdom, they must live their received level of knowledge in word, thought, desire and deed. Thus, like the prodigal son, they must begin their journey in TheWay back to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination ( http://GateOfEden.com ). And the further along they progress, the greater their understanding will become. 

   Understanding What We See: The Gospel of Thomas declares to the reader: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.  For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."   What does this mean?   It is not until we begin to be conscious of the reality that everything we think we see, perceive and understand is a mere fragment of reality, that we can even begin to overcome the limits that this physical world places upon us.   Jesus portrayed man as having abandoned the Kingdom in order to journey into the Far Country in the parable of the (two sons) prodigal son.   He portrayed this world as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which "outer darkness" is synonymous and parallel to the plight of mankind in what is known as Plato's Cave.  That man in his organic "natural" state of mind is severely limited and fragmented in what he thinks he sees, perceives and understands, is what Jesus portrays as the condition of blindness that immerses all of mankind in the "outer darkness" of mind and being.   And it was because of this inherent blindness that Jesus explained: “For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts...” (Matt 13:15-17 NIV) -- and thus, what Jesus revealed is that mankind in his organic "natural" state of mind, was inherently blind, deaf and unable to understand man's own higher soul and spiritual reality.   And that it is further impossible for even baptized and committed believers to understand the true meaning of the Bible -- and all of life -- and this long ignored biblical fact is clearly demonstrated and explored at the subheading entitled The Mystery Of The Gospel.   And when Paul explained to the Congregation of Christians who he had himself taught that: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ). -- it was because they had only begun their journey in TheWay, and were yet too immature and carnal to not only perceive their own higher soul and spiritual reality -- but to understand the inner meaning of the Gospel and scriptures.  

The gaining of what the Gospel portrays as the "eyes to see" and the "ears to hear" that is necessary in order to escape the limitations of the "outer darkness", is very much found in the words: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.   In the subheading on The Holographic Pattern Of Creation, I portray this world as a mental-womb that has the potential to supply and nourish the seeker with the necessary thoughts and mental-impressions to bring about the next stage of birth that Jesus said was necessary to enter into Life (see The Laws And The Birth Process).     What is therefore imperative to understand is the fact that the scriptures are written in allegory, because all that we see when we look out into the world are in fact thoughts and realities of mind impressed into the forms of Nature which immerse man in a Mental-Womb that is necessary for his development and next stage of birth.    Science has already proven that what man sees with his physical senses is a mental-projection of what exists in the Field which surrounds physical matter (see Science - Religion - And The Etheric Field/Mind).   And in his physical organic condition, man remains inherently blind to the source in the (Etheric) Field.   Science has further come to understand that we dwell in a holographic universe that is a projected thought -- and our physical brains interpret a certain spectrum of frequencies as being concrete -- but in reality, what we perceive as concrete is merely that spectrum of frequency (of thought) within the holographic reality of this world.   In an excerpt of the book Active Consciousness - Awakening The Power Within, by Amy L. Lansky, it is stated that:  "If a holographic image has many different holograms embedded within it, shining a laser of a specific frequency upon it will cause only those holograms made with lasers of the same frequency to stand out. That's because things with the same vibration naturally resonate and reinforce one another -- just as two violin strings at the same pitch resonate with one another. This property of resonance has [also] been used to explain how each of us might interact with mysterious fields like the psi or Akashic fields... People pick up only that with which they personally 'resonate.' Each individual's resonant frequency, determined by their life experience, physical body, and energy body, limits what they can perceive."

What you have here is the human dilemma -- i.e., "...That's because things with the same vibration naturally resonate and reinforce one another" -- which is why your body-senses which are comprised of earth-matter, and resonates at an earth-frequency, is generally incapable of perceiving beyond this very limited spectrum -- even though, all of reality lies before each person with nothing concealed.  Moreover, because there is nothing but thought-images impressed into the forms of Nature -- and you are presently dwelling in what can best be portrayed as a mental-womb -- what you are actually seeing is thoughts which have been molded and impressed into allegorical forms.  And when properly understood, this is the analogy of the Outer Darkness and Plato's Cave.  But the greater problem is that the vision of each person is further constrained by their very limited mindset -- and they can't even begin to "open and unloose" the mind as the Gospel proclaims.  And in never developing the mind to perceive and think beyond the narrowest of limitations within an already limited spectrum of the holographic field.   Now add to this the fact that each of the twelve spheres of mind imposes a sectarian perception on what is seen -- and of course these are again filtered by the holographic reality of the twelve within the twelve -- and this is why organic man is not only blind to reality outside of the frequency spectrum of the earth -- but also, sees and thinks within a very narrow spectrum of even the limited frequencies of the earth.  Further, we see in what is portrayed as the Tower of Babel Syndrome that "...People pick up only that with which they personally 'resonate.' Each individual's resonant frequency, determined by their life experience, physical body, and energy body, limits what they can perceive" -- and this is why each group is only capable of hearing and understanding the rhetoric of their own group -- why men don't understand women, and vice versa -- why man is divided across countless sectarian and philosophical schools of thought, all of which remain incomplete and dead-ended.  

  Gender-Blindness And The Process Of Birth: In view of the foregoing where the extreme limitations of man's vision, perception and understanding of what he thinks he sees is explored, it is important to also come to understand what can be called man's inherent Gender-Blindness.  When it is understood that this world is very much a mental-womb where the next stage of birth must be brought about -- and that having emerged into this world, man and woman can very much be portrayed as a cosmic ovum and sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm) -- and that man and woman is in reality an embryonic image of their true self that already exists in the embodiment of their eternal Soul-Self (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) -- then it will become necessary for the seeker/disciple to re-evaluate the whole of our modern-day cultural mindset and lifestyle.   Once again quoting from the excerpt of the book Active Consciousness - Awakening The Power Within, by Amy L. Lansky, it is stated that: "Biologist Rupert Sheldrake's theory of morphic resonance also depends upon similarity in vibration. Members of the same species, being 'on the same wavelength,' are able to tap into information that pertains uniquely to them. And while members of an entire species might be able to tune into a fairly broad spectrum of frequencies (think of Carl Jung's notion of the collective unconscious that humans supposedly tap into [5]), smaller, more tightly connected groups -- such as members of the same family or loving couples -- resonate in more focused zones of vibration; they have access to their own "private frequency.' In fact, Sheldrake goes even further and suggests that morphic fields can explain how human memory operates. Instead of being stored in our brains, he suggests that memories are stored in the morphic field. Our brains then pick them up via resonance, like radios tuning to their own private stations."

To morph, is to transform.   In The Brain Mind/Connection it has already been demonstrated that the mind and/or personality of the person is in the Etheric Field that surrounds and immerses the body-vessel.   In the same way that the atmosphere surrounds the earth and provides life-giving oxygen to organic life, the mind encompasses the body and is cycled in and out in positive and negative charges with each breath.   That the mind is in the Etheric Field is further explored and proven in The Folly Of The NDE Critic.   (quoting) What does the Bible state?    With respect to man's ability to release himself from the body-vessel, Paul writes that: "I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago-- whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows-- such a one was caught up to the third heaven.  And I know such a man-- whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows -- how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:2-4 NKJ).   What Paul is describing is an inner journey beyond the limitations of the physical body -- to what he portrays as the third level of heaven -- beyond the inner gate of the body and what Paul portrays as Paradise -- where he "...heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."   That other disciples of TheWay brought about this same transformation of body and mind that enabled them to enter the Inner Kingdom ( http://GateOfEden.com ), represents an important aspect of the original spiritual objectives of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.    Jesus taught that there is One Teacher -- and you must learn only from this One Teacher (see The True Prophet) -- and the substance of Jesus' teachings of TheWay, was to enable the disciple to enter the "narrow gate" within themselves, and learn the Sacred Secrets of Creation directly from the One Teacher.  

When people pick up the Bible or read a scriptural quotation, they automatically perceive and attempt to define what is presented based upon their previously held conceptions of the dogmatic religious world.   And herein lies one of the primary problems that plague mankind -- i.e., the scriptures have virtually nothing to do either dogmatic belief, and/or belief in an historical person or man-god -- but rather, when properly understood from the perception of the original authors (see An Inconvenient Truth), the scriptures are an allegorical text-book of the person's own mind and body-environment with respect to the growth and development of mind.   In the above heading on The Trinity - Dualism - And The Divine Pattern Of Creation, I demonstrate that the Dualism that is the very foundation of the Trinity and Pattern of Creation, is not only presented throughout all of the scriptures, but is the primary teaching throughout.   Once properly understood, it can be stated that the scriptures are in reality a Marriage Manual that teaches the seeker/disciple how to bring together, merge, and unite in Marriage the Duality and Opposite Forces within their own mind and being.   And that Man and Woman is the Highest Expression of the Duality of the Divine Pattern, means that it is the Organic Environment of Marriage taken to a Higher Level -- that is not only the very objective of the scriptures, but the means by which each individual man and woman can learn and experience the Highest Truths that are portrayed in the Gospels as the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom.   

With respect to the proper use of the scriptures which Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge that is necessary to turn within one's own mind and being in search of the One Teacher and True Prophet, the Church Father Origen wrote in De Principiis: “But all the narrative portion, relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever, what else can they be supposed to be, save the forms and figures of hidden and sacred things? As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn, the consequence is that they never begin to have knowledge”

What this means is that what is portrayed as marriages of seemingly historical people, is not at all pertaining to an historical account of the past -- but rather, the merging and morphing of positive/negative male/female spheres and realities of mind in the process of  Heightening And Expansion Of Mind that enables the seeker/disciple to comprehend at a higher and more enlightened level than the rest of mankind.   That holographically, men and women embody these polarities of mind that are imbued with the Divine Pattern of Creation, is merely the manifestation of the Laws that are intended to assist mankind in his development and process of maturation that brings about wholeness and completion.   What appears in the scriptures to be the names of historical people, are merely a portrayal of segments, forces and laws which control and manifest man's thinking, awareness and level of knowledge.   As the opposites are merged, and the third-force balance of mind is expanded beyond the limits of the organic physical consciousness of the body, the seeker/disciple begins to access both the higher reality of the soul and the Logos or Mind of God which is at the core and essence of our Being.   And it is to this inner Source of Knowledge that the Gnostics portrayed as Gnosis, which Origen makes note of when he writes that  "...As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn"  -- and this knowledge which is already possessed even before organic man begins to learn, is the inner Source of his being as manifest in the higher reality of his own soul, as well as the Divine Mind of God as manifest in the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet.    And in the same way that the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is a portrayal of the Duality of male and female that is divided and functioning in a separated condition, the process of merging the opposites is portrayed in the allegorical scriptures in "...the narrative portion, relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children".   And without the proper application of the  Key of Knowledge, the person will remain in death from the eating of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality.    

  The Merger Of Opposites Into One: When rightly understood, procreation is a by-product of sex -- and not the purpose of sex as philosophically and dogmatically portrayed by many of the world's religions.   The word by-product is defined as "...a secondary product derived from a manufacturing process or chemical reaction. It is not the primary product or service being produced."   The primary purpose of sex it to bring about the interaction and merger of opposites in order to achieve Oneness and Wholeness -- a condition that is necessary to initiate the higher development of the mind and being beyond organic physical limitations which have the potential to initiate the process of the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind.  

Writing on the nature of a hologram, in The Holographic Universe - Does Objective Reality Exist?, Michael Talbot explains that "The three-dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characteristic of holograms. If a hologram of a rose is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will still be found to contain the entire image of the rose.  Indeed, even if the halves are divided again, each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of the original image. Unlike normal photographs, every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole."   In order to begin to understand the limitations of what we see and the true unseen reality, Bohm created an analogy using an aquarium (see Aquarium).   Using Bohm's analogy of the aquarium, Michael Talbot further explains: "According to Bohm, the apparent faster-than-light connection between subatomic particles is really telling us that there is a deeper level of reality we are not privy to, a more complex dimension beyond our own that is analogous to the aquarium. And, he adds, we view objects such as subatomic particles as separate from one another because we are seeing only a portion of their reality.  Such particles are not separate 'parts', but facets of a deeper and more underlying unity that is ultimately as holographic and indivisible as the previously mentioned rose. And since everything in physical reality is comprised of these 'eidolons', the universe is itself a projection, a hologram.  In addition to its phantomlike nature, such a universe would possess other rather startling features. If the apparent separateness of subatomic particles is illusory, it means that at a deeper level of reality all things in the universe are infinitely interconnected."

The foregoing both conveys and explains a number of ultra-important realties that is not generally understood.   First, that what we observe with our physical senses is only a fraction of the whole -- i.e., "...that there is a deeper level of reality we are not privy to".    And this very partial perception is one of the reasons why the Gospel of Thomas states: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."    Which is also presented by the Apostle Paul in the words: "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18 KJV).   The fact that we innately possess the ability to perceive the whole -- of which only a fragment can be seen with man's physical eyes -- means that we have the potential to develop the ability to perceive reality beyond physical organic limitations.   

In the above subheading entitled The Divine Counterpart I portray a higher mind and being that is our True Self -- i.e., our higher soul-self -- and the fact that our true self which exists in a higher realm of being, is not manifest in the physical body-vessel.   And I portray the individual man or woman in this world as a projection of the soul into the body as An Embryonic Soul-Image.   Which means that because of the limitations of the organic physical body, the True Self or the Soul-Self cannot manifest.   Moreover, as stated in The Second Fatal Mistake in the Prologue of the Key of Knowledge, the reason why it is impossible for man in his "natural" organic condition to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mystery Of The Gospel, is because of his fragmentary and embryonic condition of mind and being that Paul portrays as the limitations of "natural" man. 

In order to conquer and overcome man's inherent physical limitations, it is important to understand that the higher soul-self of man is asexual -- asexual because the male/female polarities are in balance.   And when properly understood, all of Creation exists within the Divine Pattern of male/female opposites, and the third-force of mind as the offspring (see The Divine Pattern).   In the same way that the Logos/Son of God is the third-force balance of what is portrayed as Mother/Father God (see The Logos), our own higher soul-self which has no gender, is the balance between the duality of the (feminine/reflective) physical and spiritual (male/active) natures.   As stated in The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is generally attacked by Jewish philosophers, but is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel.  It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief.   According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.   

The important truth for our conversation here is that "...The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.   Therefore, to manifest the soul or true self in the body, the person must overcome the great gender divide within themselves -- and this can only be accomplished within the higher reality of the Etheric.   This is possible because the soul itself is not itself implanted in the body -- neither does the soul have a body in the manner that their generated embryonic soul-image does in this world -- and since the soul-self is a Being of pure Enlightened Light and Life-force, with the proper foundation it can manifest in the Etheric field of the enlightened mind of man.   But what is important with respect to our present discussion, is the fact that it means that a man or woman is neither whole, nor are they a complete individual, because their very gender divides them into, at the very least, a third of the whole.   The body and the gender assigned human consciousness is in fact a barrier to manifesting the true self -- i.e., again quoting The Female Mind by Dr. Brizendine (see above The Opening And Unlocking Of The Mind) where she writes: "There is no unisex brain. Girls arrive already wired as girls, and boys arrive already wired as boys. Their brains are different by the time they're born, and their brains are what drive their impulses, values and their very reality."

If the higher soul-self is neither male nor female -- and is the cumulative sum of all experiences spanning countless lifetimes since the dawn of time -- then it is impossible for man or woman in their organic earth-consciousness condition to Know Thyself.    Further, as an embryonic-image of the true self -- i.e., a fragmentary aspect of the consciousness of the un-manifest whole that is imbued with the temporal and myopic thinking of the conditions and culture it is born into -- and by virtue of its inherent limitations as a fragmentary aspect of the whole that is the product of this temporal culture, does not possess the mental depth to even envision its own higher soul-realty -- which is why Gurdjieff portrays organic man as a "false-personality", others portray organic man as the false ego-self, and why Jesus taught that you must lose the self you are in this world, in order to gain the true self in the Real World (see  The Divine Counterpart).      

When I wrote in the above that "...when rightly understood, procreation is a by-product of sex" -- and that the "primary purpose of sex it to bring about the interaction and merger of opposites in order to achieve Oneness and Wholeness" -- this is because the environment of man and woman in a Consecrated Divine Marriage has the ability to evolve both the man and woman who comprise the Union -- creating within the Union of Dynamic Evolved Opposites, the necessary Foundation in the physical to manifest the higher soul-selves in the body-vessel.    Jesus taught that a house divided cannot stand -- and only when there is a merger of the person we are in this world with our own higher eternal soul-self, can the Logos of Mind of God be tapped into -- which fulfills the teaching: "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ) -- i.e., the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   Which is why Peter is quoted in the Clementine Homilies as stating:  Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples” (see The Search For The True Prophet).          

What Jesus taught with respect to an inner Kingdom and a Source of All Truth which the ancients called the Logos or Mind of God (see Logos), is not at all a religious belief -- but rather, a fact of life that has been proven to be true by countless seekers the world over.    That those who either choose to live their lives in often total abandonment of any higher moral or spiritual values and standards , and those who reject knowledge and fail to understand the higher reality of man and woman as the highest expression of the Pattern of Duality, can't duplicate this same inner journey into the Inner Kingdom -- and the fact that these same individuals are perceived to dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- or what Plato portrayed as the Cave of Illusions -- is merely the fruit of their own thinking as their carnal chickens come home to roost!   When the cultural authorities said the world was flat -- and Columbus ignored their self-imposed beliefs, and then traveled to the New World, it was not a religious belief that the New World existed -- just like it is not a religious belief that each of us has an inner gateway to the Kingdom within.   This is a fact of life that has been confirmed by countless witnesses who have themselves made the inner journey.   That those who, as the prodigal son who squandered away his inheritance -- i.e., his vital life-force and bio-energies -- which portray people who defile their body and choose to live as heathen beasts -- thereby  "...destroys and pollutes, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices”  (see Logos) -- and because of this defilement and pollution, they dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see  The Outer Darkness ) that causes them to be blind to man's own higher reality of soul and the Kingdom -- does not at all mean that all of mankind must remain spiritually blind, and alienated from the higher knowledge of the soul and the Kingdom of God.   From a purely Constitutional perspective, the knowledge of this inner Kingdom and the higher reality of the soul can and should be portrayed as a birth-right -- and this sacred knowledge is therefore very much an UnAlienable Right that can't be censored by counterfeit teachers who knowingly suppress and censor the facts in order to promote a godless and immoral culture.   Again, to clarify -- while the existence of the inner Kingdom is a fact, religion is the mindset and lifestyle that the person must live and put into practice, in order to break down the barrier of separation of what is allegorically portrayed as heaven and earth within themselves. 

The primary cultural flaw is the conclusion of each person that they are the true person they think they are -- and that they are themselves Whole.  When in truth they are in fact the next holographic level of (cosmic) sperm and ovum (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm).  From the perspective of man's higher reality, on a holographic level of physical reproduction, a child is merely the third-force pattern of the duality of the mother and father being played out in an allegorical analogy.  If man understood the Laws, he would begin to grasp that in this Living Allegory, his third-force offspring in the form of his child is presented to him, so he can better understand himself and his being in this world.  And in this respect, the duality of man is very much as one half of the two sides of a heart -- one half of the two hemispheres of the brain -- one half of the equation of the two lungs -- etc., etc..  And in relation to his higher soul-self which is his true-self, his inherent sperm-thinking in the case of the male, or ovum-thinking in the case of a female, must be seen as a fatal flaw that inhibits his progress.   But since most organic men and women don't even much understand each other -- i.e., bound by their gender, they see a different spectrum of frequency within the cosmic hologram -- they speak different languages -- and they lack the necessary manifestation of Wholeness -- they are generally incapable of perceiving and understanding their own higher soul-realty.  And whatever they do sense out of the Astral, is warped because of their own lack of wholeness.

In a holographic reality, each level is not only in accord with the pattern of the whole -- i.e., as above, so below -- as in the Macrocosm, so in the microcosm -- the reality of the lower levels of a holographic reality is always a pattern for the higher.   What this means is that in the same way that the purpose of sex on a physical-level is to bring forth the third-force offspring of the sexual union of man and woman, this sexual union that manifests a new body on the physical, is also the primary forces that develops the mind in the interaction and union of paradoxical opposites within the Duality of the Divine Pattern of Creation.   On a mental and spiritual level, physical sex is the means to connect the two half's, and begin the process of exchange of impressions -- enabling not only mental interaction, but the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind that enables them to comprehend at a higher and more enlightened level than the rest of mankind.   By Law, the greater the bonding between husband and wife -- in conjunction with mental exploration and expansion -- the greater the growth of the third-force that is the (mental) substance of the union -- a third-force reality which exists in the Etheric that both have equal access to.  And as explained in the diagrams of the Triangle, the Star of David, and the Tree of Life in The Trinity And The Divine Pattern Of Creation, it is the male/female interaction within the Natural Laws of Creation, that evolves the Third-force (of mind) up to a soul-self level of manifestation.  Physical sex, therefore, is the physical means of connecting the two halves and initiating and maintaining the process where the exchange of thoughts and impressions is raised up and again exchanged at a higher level of mind, where they are then channeled into evolving the third-force that is by Design, the means to move beyond the limitations of the frequency spectrum of this world.

  Why Is Sexual Immorality Condemned: To understand why sexual fidelity is required in the scriptures, one has to first understand to whom and for whom the scriptures are written?  Of primary importance is to understand that in most instances, sin is knowledge not lived.   Thus the statement: “That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:47-48 NIV).   What this means is that each person's life is evaluated in accord with their personal level of advancement and knowledge i.e.,  "...From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked”.    For the vast majority of mankind, sex is not a sin, so long as it is not coerced or in any manner forced.   In the Blog article entitled Should Christians Embrace Genuine Spiritual Marriage? Civil Union vs Marriage (copied into the below), the case is made that sex is a natural expression, and all people have the civil right to choose their sexual partners and orientation.   But a True Marriage is a Spiritual Sacrament -- as is the sexual union within such a Marriage (see The Sacrament Of Marriage).   And as a Spiritual Sacrament, the requirements of a True Marriage is Spiritually Ordained from On High, and cannot be defined or redefined by man.   Those who fail to achieve and maintain the Requirements, cannot be participants in the Spiritual Sacrament.  

Sexual immorality is condemned in the scriptures, because it is an inhibiting factor in the development of the Union which is the foundation for the third-force higher spheres of mind that provide us access to our True-Self, as well as the Higher Source of Knowledge.  In order to evolve the mind to where we can begin to tap into the Higher Source of Knowledge that in most people lies beyond the holographic barrier within each person, the thought-impressions between the opposite polarities (male/female) must be exchanged, raised up, and again exchanged at a higher level.   This is necessary in order to evolve the third-force  of the male/female opposites beyond the limitations of earth-frequencies.   When the Gospel of Thomas states that you must "...make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom" (see Gospel of Thomas saying #22), it becomes very difficult to even impossible to bring about the required merger, when the woman is connected to men other than her husband.   And Paul correctly presents the problem when he writes to the Congregation at Corinth: "Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, 'The two will become one flesh'".  When Jesus said to the woman at the well that she was unable to go and get her husband because she had five husbands (John 4:18), we must be cognizant of the fact that Jesus and other spiritually advanced souls are able to see into Ćtheric (Field) dimensions that man in his natural organic condition cannot.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  Moreover, when Jesus told her that even the man she was with at present could not be her husband in the genuine spiritual meaning of the word, what he was conveying was that because of the polluted environment that she has permitted her body to become, she was incapable of having a genuine husband.  Since on one level you stay connected to whom ever you have had sex with, there is only the exchange of low-level thought-impressions which cannot be exchanged at a higher level -- and only drive the person into confusion and meaningless carnal thinking.  Thus, mentally and spiritually grounding the people to the mundane earth. And while the more advanced the soul, the more they are able to deal with adverse body environmental conditions, in most instances even these few become warped in their perception and thinking. In the same way that a genetic imbalance in a developing embryo creates mental impairment and conditions such as Down Syndrome, the same is true on the next higher holographic level with the bombardment of low-level thoughts from people who one has been previously connected to. In the same way that the two sides of the ear must move and resonate together, so too must husband and wife.

For the first time modern science has proven the wisdom of the mystic -- i.e., that a woman remains connected to every man she has ever had sex with -- which is noted in the recent American Journal Of Medicine article entitled: Male microchimerism in women without sons: Quantitative assessment and correlation with pregnancy history.   Directly quoting the article it states: "Male microchimerism was not infrequent in women without sons. Besides known pregnancies, other possible sources of male microchimerism include unrecognized spontaneous abortion, vanished male twin, an older brother transferred by the maternal circulation, or sexual intercourse."   Researchers have found that any man a woman has unprotected sex with, will also permanently store their DNA with hers.   The findings have demonstrated that DNA belonging to men (detected by the presence of Y chromosomes) in women.  They could find these by taking blood samples from various body parts and brain tissue.  Male DNA can exist inside cells in women's bodies for decades. This effect was given the name microchimerism. The most studied cause of microchimerism is that originating from the male fetus into their pregnant mothers. However, women who have never been pregnant also had male DNA in their cells, and it has been concluded that this was also through sexual intercourse.  Semen contains lymphocytes and other cells of the male which can pass into the bloodstream and continue to persist inside the organs of women.   This deposit of male DNA in the woman's brain is the means by which the woman and the man maintain a connection in the physical -- enabling the thought impressions to connect on an etheric level.   Writing on the foregoing sexual reality that modern science is only now coming to discover, Alanna Ketter wrote the following:

Source: Collective Evolution author Alanna Ketter: This Study Will Make You Think Twice About Who You Are Getting Into Bed With

I find this extremely fascinating because a spiritual friend and mentor once told me that every time you sleep with somebody you are taking on a part of them within you. I thought of this as a powerful metaphor, that we were keeping a part of them energetically. Needless to say, it made me reflect on certain things from my past and this whole analogy really made a lot of sense. But, to learn that there is actual scientific proof to back this up and that it is a physical thing, that it is more than just energy, is pretty astounding. The idea that as women we are capable of taking on actual physical DNA from the men that we sleep with was an extremely eye opening piece of information to stumble across.

This science puts a whole new meaning on sexual intercourse as a whole. It is a very sacred and spiritual act and, in my opinion, should be regarded as such. A lot of people are misusing sex and have forgotten what it is meant for and how important and consecrated it really is. I think I speak for a lot of women out there in saying that I know what this is like and have had experiences in the past with giving away sex somewhat freely because of insecurity, or to please or impress a man without actually even realizing how irresponsible this was. Because at the time, it was just sex, and when you are completely disconnected from yourself, it doesn’t seem like it’s a big deal. Now being older and more connected to my spiritual self I realize that sex is not something that is meant to be thrown around and given out so freely, it is a sacred act that creates a bond between two people that love and care about each other. It is so important for us (humanity) to realize this. There is a lot of power and amazing potential within this act and it has the ability to connect us with our true selves.

Many of us are holding onto a lot of sexual baggage from our past, and it is not my intent to make anyone regret past experiences. Rather, to let go and embrace what the past has taught us and move forward with this knowledge and consider it wisely. With this information I’m sure you will think twice about who you are ending up in bed with...

The above picture was used in one of the publications of the foregoing article by Alanna Ketter.   And while the picture attempts to portray a defiled physical woman as a sexual partner, it very well presents what can be portrayed as spiritual defilement and death by virtue of the woman being flat-lined and earth-bound by virtue of her connection to many sexual partners.  

In the magazine The Scientist the article entitled Swapping DNA In The Womb it is stated that: "The findings are the first demonstration of microchimerism—in which cells that originated in one individual integrate into the tissues of another—in the human brain, and could have implications for disease."  Concluding that: “Knowing cells are in the brain brings home the idea that we’re a little more diverse than we thought we were,” said Nelson. “So conceptually, it may be more appropriate to think of ourselves as an ecosystem rather than a single genetic template.”   The article then goes on an explains that: "Researchers have suspected that the human brain may harbor microchimeric cells, which are present in other human organs, and previous studies in mice have shown that such foreign cells can break through the blood-brain barrier. But the study, led by Lee Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, revealed that microchimeric cells could not only migrate to the brain, but do so frequently: more than 60 percent of autopsied brains contained DNA from another individual.  ...To quantify microchimerism in the brain, Nelson and colleagues selectively looked for a gene found on the Y chromosome in brain sections from 59 female cadavers. ...In total, the researchers found that 37 women harbored such foreign genes in their brains. They also found evidence of cells in the brain, suggesting that microchimeric cells can and do cross the blood-brain barrier."

That the DNA of a husband begins to deposit and even merge with that of his wife, is of the utmost importance in the process of bonding that enables the two to become "one flesh".   But when a women can be portrayed "...as an ecosystem rather than a single genetic template.”, such a body-environment where a woman is connected to a number of previous sexual partners, is detrimental to the two becoming "one flesh".   Thus, inhibiting the alchemical transformational process presented in the words of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas: Jesus said to them, "...when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom."   And to the woman who had been caught in adultery, Jesus said: "Go and sin no more” (John 8:1-11).   Why?   Because a woman who is connected to many male sexual partners -- making herself "...an ecosystem" where the DNA of past sexual partners has joined with her own -- will have great difficulty joining with a husband, and therefore cannot fulfill the biological role of the two becoming "one flesh".   

From the perspective of the mystic Samael Aun Weor (see Gnostic Teachings - What Is Adultery?): "Since a woman’s body is a passive and receptive element, it is clear that her body collects and stores more of the results of the sexual acts than all of those men who commit adultery with her; those results are atomic substances from the men with whom she has had sexual intercourse. Therefore, when someone has sexual intercourse with a person who has been with another partner or other partners, both then absorb the atomic essences of the other partners and poison themselves with them. This is a very grave problem for those brothers and sisters who are dissolving the “I” because then, not only do they have to fight against their own errors and defects, but more over, they have to fight against the errors and defects of those other partners with whom they had sexual intercourse."   And this is why the scriptures state: "And the man that committeth adultery with [another] man's wife, [even he] that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death" (Leviticus 20:10).   And why it is written: "Three evil deeds [that create suffering] depending upon the body are: killing, stealing, and committing adultery." (Buddha, from The Practice of Dhyâna).   "Adultery can be committed with the eyes" - (Jewish, Leviticus Rabba 23)   "Commit no adultery. This law is broken by even looking at the wife of another with a lustful mind" - Buddha.   "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart" - Jesus, in Matthew 5.      An interesting position is presented in confirmation of the above in the publication Hinduism Today in the article on A Mystical View Of Adultery where it states:

The adulteress has a karma to bear that affects many generations of her relatives and friends, for she is psychically connected to every man with whom she has had intercourse. A mystic could see a fog-like psychic tube connecting their astral bodies that will not disintegrate for many years. The adulteress may have many of these tubes, especially if she is a woman for hire. A man is connected in the same way to all women he has been with. It is through these psychic tubes, which are like the umbilical cord connecting a baby to its mother, that the energies flow, and the karmas as well--good, bad and mixed.

A husband and wife who were both virgins at marriage have only a singular psychic tube through which energies pass between them. If their relationship is pure and they are intellectually and emotionally compatible, they automatically control their karmas of dharma, artha, kama and moksha. Their children are lovingly raised, because they are never entangled in family feuding. There is no fight involved, because no intruder has established a new psychic umbilical cord with either spouse, which would cause disruption between them and impending havoc to the children.

Once an astral, psychic tube is established between two people through sexual encounters, it becomes a telepathic channel, conveying thoughts, feelings and emotions. This is an important connection for married couples, tying them intimately together. Those who are married and have fidelity know that it is possible to feel the spouse's moods and emotions and even read his or her thoughts, all of which are conveyed through this psychic laser beam or subtle astral pranic channel. For those who have had sexual encounters with several of the opposite sex, the psychic connections become confusing. It would be like watching four, five or more TV programs at the same time, all day long and especially during the night. Small wonder they experience stress of which the cause eludes even the best psychiatrists.

  Help-Meet

In addition to the above, modern science has recognized what can be called the "bonding hormone" in the form of the secretion of oxytocin when a woman hugs with a man.  "It's like a hormone of attachment, you might say," said Carol Rinkleib Ellison, a clinical psychologist in private practice in Loomis, California and former assistant clinical psychiatry professor at the University of California, San Francisco. "It creates feelings of calm and closeness" (see The Effects Of Oxytocin).    Thus, the Britannica states that "Oxytocin and its receptors also play a role in pro-social behaviours, including in social motivation, social recognition, trust, and pair-bonding" -- and hugging and close interaction, is an integral part of the pair-bonding sexual process.   In the article at Your Hormones, it states that "More recently, oxytocin has been suggested to be an important player in social behaviour.  In the brain, oxytocin acts as a chemical messenger and has been shown to be important in human behaviours including sexual arousal, recognition, trust, anxiety and mother-infant bonding. As a result, oxytocin has been called the ‘love hormone’ or ‘cuddle chemical’."   The foregoing provokes the question:  What is it that you want out of life?  Quoting from the article The Real Meaning Of Help Meet:

In Hebrew the two words that "help meet" are derived from are the words "ezer" and the word 'k’enegdo".   Ezer which is commonly translated as "help" is really a rich word with a much deeper meaning. In her book Eve and the Choice Made in Eden, Beverly Campbell explains, “According to biblical scholar David Freedman, the Hebrew word translated thee into English as “help” is ezer. This word is a combination of two roots, one meaning “to rescue”, “to save,” and the other meaning “to be strong.” Just as the roots merged into one word, so did their meanings. At first ezer meant either “to save” or “to be strong,” but in time, said Freedman, ezer “ was always interpreted as ‘to help’ a mixture of both nuances.”  Diana Webb in her book Forgotten Women of God also clarifies this word by explaining, "The noun ezer occurs 21 times in the Hebrew Bible. In eight of these instances the word means “savior”. These examples are easy to identify because they are associated with other expressions of deliverance or saving. Elsewhere in the Bible, the root ezer means “strength.... the word is most frequently used to describe how God is an ezer to man. "

 

From a biological-spiritual perspective, woman as personified in the allegorical account of Eve,  is man's (Adam) most immediate savior.   She not only Completes him,  but she has the unique ability to draw him up from the excesses of his positively-charged lower nature -- returning back to him the necessary impressions as a mental food on a higher plane, that brings about higher expansion and deepening of mind.   Which is why in the Spiritual Communities of the past, all contact with a young female was always chaperoned.   To the wise and spiritually enlightened men of the past, what a young woman brings to the marriage is of an immeasurable importance.   Again quoting Beverly Campbell: "Thus, it seems that through imprecise translation, our understanding of the powerful words used originally to describe Eve’s role have been diminished. As a result, our understanding or Mother Eve has also been diminished. Suppose we had all, male and female alike, been taught to understand Genesis 2:18 as something like the following, 'It is not good that man should be alone. I will make him a companion of strength and power who has a saving power and is equal with him'.”   When a woman permits herself to become attached to a number of men, this "saving power" is greatly diminished, and she can no longer fulfill her intended role.   Thus, the woman that has permitted herself to become spiritually polluted through many connections with men other than her husband, can no longer garner her feminine power that enables her to Complete and Raise Up her husband -- and in the process, Completing herself Spiritually.   A woman who is attached to other men, cannot fulfill the dynamic spiritual role of the feminine within the construct of the Laws of Creation.   And while this may appear extreme by modern cultural standards where casual and hookup sex has become a part of the recreational sex environment, the reality of life is seen in the fact that choices have consequences.  There is a reason why the Bible condemns fornication and adultery -- and not to understand that reason, is to become entrapped in a condition of spiritual ignorance.  If what Paul and the other Gospel Authors stated is true, and there exist higher realities and dimensions of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel ) -- and by virtue of the immaturity of the faith-based believers brought about by an embryonic condition of mind which Paul portrayed as the "natural" mind of man -- and the limitations of this embryonic condition of mind even inhibited Jesus from conveying the true meaning of the scriptures, and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom to all but his inner core of disciples (see In The House - Taught In Parables) -- which means that the biblical authors were therefore powerless to explain in detail many of the most important Gospel teachings and concepts in the literal text of the New Testament -- then the spiritually mature author's of the scriptures who were themselves enlightened to these higher realities, remained virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do's and don'ts -- so that the faith-based believers will be in a position where they will be better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.  To totally ignore these do's and don'ts, without knowing the consequence of one's choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded.      

In the same way that the embryo which formed each persons physical body was made up of the ovum and sperm that became ONE in their mother's womb, when rightly understood this world is merely the next higher level of womb -- i.e., a mental womb. And much of this is explained at The Esoteric Feminine Mystique. That you enter this world as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm, means that at best you are only one third of the whole -- and the purpose of sex is to connect up the two halves on this plane (man and woman) so the higher reality of the Third-Force that is formed by the joining of the two can be brought about on a higher-plane. And with the interaction of the opposites (male/female spheres of mind), this has the potential to form and manifest what can be portrayed as a morphic field where the two are not only made "one flesh", but that the higher areas of mind and being can form and evolve the relationship (see Gender Blindness And The Process Of Birth).  When the man and woman live in a Divine Union, then there is an exchange, interaction and raising up of the minds as the higher mental spheres develop and connect the person you are in this world with your higher soul-self.  But in order for this to happen, the man and woman must interact on all levels of their being -- as equal and united halves.  If the woman is connected to a man other than her husband, then this interaction of the spheres of mind is not possible -- and the vital life-force is lost into nature.  In the case of a man, these other women are as dependents that drain him of his vital life-force -- rather than reflect and raise him up as with a true wife.   And thus, because this necessary interaction of opposites cannot take place, the  remain flat-lined. I expanded upon this process to some degree on the Know Thyself article under the heading The Divine Pattern Of Mind And Being.

   What You Didn't Know About Casual Sex - Cutting AKA Cords - A Letter To Crystal: Some time after writing the above on Sexual Immorality, a FaceBook entry came across my inbox entitled What You Didn't Know About Casual Sex.   As stated in the below, my wife has helped other women to cut the Aka Cords that connect sexual partners -- and one of the statements that I took particular notice of in the Blog article that Crystal wrote was her profound wisdom in the advice that few women today have any understanding of: "Never Have Sex With Someone You Don't Want To Become".   Below is my letter to Crystal the author of What You Didn't Know About Casual Sex, and I have copied her article into the below.
 

Letter To Crystal

Crystal:

We seem to have written somewhat parallel articles attesting to the same fact that our modern culture wants to ignore.   My article is entitled Why Is Sexual Immorality Condemned In The Bible (see http://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2015/11/why-is-sexual-immorality-condemned-in.html ) which is drawn from a subheading on the Soul-Self website at Sexual Immorality  http://SoulSelf.org#SexualImmorality .  Your article entitled What You Didn't Know About Casual Sex, is at https://mywakingpath.wordpress.com/2015/03/25/what-you-didnt-know-about-casual-sex/

I particularly liked your closing statement: "Never Have Sex With Someone You Don't Want To Become".    While I agree with much of what you write -- and my wife has herself taught other women how to sever the aka chords which connect sexual partners -- I am also aware that while the cutting of these chords can lessen the effects and influence of sexual partners, the connection can never be totally erased.  And since I am writing from the perspective of achieving the next stage of birth where you actually manifest your Higher or Soul-Self in the body -- which is very difficult to achieve -- and this is the objective of the scriptures (see http://AnInconvenientTruth.org ) -- I would have to take the position that an informed seeker would not want to even engage in the behavior of casual sex.  You are also correct that in spirit (quoting you)  In the spirit or astral world, sex is seen as very sacred, not only because of the laws which religions have placed on it.  It is sacred because it involves the soul and spirit which are divine in nature.   

The original disciples of TheWay who were led by the man known today as Jesus, understood the intricacies of sex and the male/female relationship in the process of completing the four stages of birth necessary to achieve Soul-Wholeness and Completion.   And as an informed writer, you may be greatly interested in the relationship of male and female as set forth in my Gospel of Thomas subheading entitled The Unwanted Truth That Makes Men Free @ http://nazirene.org/gospel_of_thomas.htm#TheUnwantedTruth .   Which demonstrates that traditional religion is virtually worthless for its intended original objective.  And it is the sacredness of the relationship of male/female that is why I portray our emergence from the womb of our mother, into the womb of mother-earth as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm (seehttp://TheThreeLies.com#CosmicOvumAndSperm ).  And I detail how a man and woman can invoke the Natural Laws and manifest their unique feminine and masculine strengths to create the foundation within themselves to manifest the necessary environment to bring the subsequent stages of birth about (see The Esoteric Feminine Mystique http://SoulSelf.org#EsotericFeminineMystique ).   

I applaud your efforts at making this spiritual reality of the Facts of Life available to the sincere seeker. 

GodSpeed in TheWay,

What You Didn’t Know About Casual Sex


Our modern world is very open to casual sex.  Also known as free sex or liberated sex, it is the intimate physical union of two bodies without emotional attachments.   Any form of sexual coupling that is entered into, no matter how long or short which is without commitment, responsibility and most of all, love fall under this.

Casual sex comes in the following guises:

  1. One night stand (with someone you know or a stranger)

  2. Friends with benefits

  3. Sexual orgies

  4. Sexual experimentation and exploration

  5. Cyber Sex

  6. Porn Sex with masturbation

  7. Phone Sex Services

  8. Paid Actual Sex

  9. Random Hand Jobs and Oral Sex

 

Many engage in this form of sexual release primarily because they don’t want any “complication” which usually comes with having sex in a closed relationship. They see this as an easier way to enjoy sex without the litany of responsibilities and emotional, even financial baggage that come with being committed.  Males who are masters at this can even get away with unwanted pregnancies. 

The media, through movies, TV shows, soap operas,  comedy shows, advertisements and music depict sex as fun, free and accessible (because you can do it with anyone), romantic, healing and all the good things you were programmed to believe. The internet, even books and printed articles portray casual sex as easy, natural, stress-free, liberating and fun. Our society has been fed the information that this is a primal urge which man cannot control and so, he has to release it.  In turn, he becomes healthier, happier, focused and productive.   

People who freely engage in it usually believe that they are not hurting anyone with what they are doing because it is not forced or done without the other’s liking. Well, they are so wrong.  The word “hurt” is an understatement to all the negative effects of such acts.

Casual sex has never been as good and safe as we were made to believe.  The person’s spirit is greatly harmed.  When there is something sick or broken in one’s spirit, it will affect the physical body, including his social and psychological state.

Let me show you how this happens by first explaining what sex is in general.

We have been taught that sex is just the act of physical intercourse with another.  It may be done with an opposite or same gender partner.   It is first preceded by physical attraction, then arousal and ends with the act of coitus itself.  Well, sex is so much deeper than that.

Unseen Depths of the Sexual Act

When one has sex with another, not only do their bodies join.  Their souls or astral bodies unite as well. There is an absolute merging of the body, mind and spirit. There can never be a harmless random “casual” union because it involves a person’s whole being.  In the spirit or astral world, sex is seen as very sacred, not only because of the laws which religions have placed on it.  It is sacred because it involves the soul and spirit which are divine in nature. 

Even if you had sex just for 30 seconds, it still involved the union of each other’s auric fields. And it has long term effects that will transcend one’s generation and lifetime.

During the sexual union, both bodies emit a certain degree of light.  When this is emitted, souls in the spirit world, waiting to incarnate on earth eagerly watch.  When there is much love and pure devotion between the couple, they emit very bright beams of light.  These forms of coupling attract incarnating souls that are of higher awareness and spiritual development.  Children born out of this union are kind-hearted, balanced and more loving. On the other hand, partners who do intercourse without love, emit a grayish light.  These attract incarnating souls that are less experienced and have very low spiritual wisdom.  If pregnancy happens, children born will become very insecure, problematic and rebellious.

Remember that the aura of each person engaged in the sexual act is open to each other.  Contained in one’s aura are the person’s personality, habits, attitudes, talents and capabilities, spiritual debts and karma, blessings and curses, illnesses and diseases (including sickness that will still manifest later in life) and all sorts of emotional baggage.  When there is complete union of the auras, all that one has in his auric field melds with all that there is in hers. 


casualsex
In a husband and wife relationship, it is a common occurrence that the woman easily senses if her husband is lying or has been unfaithful or is still in an extra-marital affair.  How do wives get this psychic ability?  

As a married couple, their auras are always united and her soul easily “sees” and “feels” into his aura.  Her conscious mind is not aware but her spirit mind is, and so she senses this infidelity.  Also, have you ever noticed that the longer a couple stays married (and sexually intimate), the more they seem to “look alike” even if they each have very different facial features?  It is the blending of the couple’s auras that makes people perceive such a resemblance.

An important factor that we should take note of is that the presence of love is powerful and significant in the safety of both souls during the sexual act itself. If the act is caused by love, this light energy serves as a force field against negative energies hovering around the couple’s space. Their auras are exclusively open only to each other and are penetrable only by the same level of light energies. 

 

If there is no love, and lust is the primal cause of the act, both persons are open for dark energies to enter both their fields.  Negative entities of this kind hook themselves deep into the aura of the chosen partner and will feed from the host indefinitely.  Lustful entities are highly attracted to this kind of lustful union.  The person chosen to be the prey of these types of “demons” will be more and more lustful and will crave for more similar unions.  That is why people who have tried casual sex once tend to have succeeding free sex events.  Also, they become afraid and unwilling to enter a committed relationship.  Or if they ever enter into a committed relationship, they will still be unfaithful or promiscuous after a while.

Another occurrence during intercourse is soul fragmentation.  This happens whether it be a union with or without love.  As soon as both bodies and soul separate, part of the soul body of one partner is taken by the other and viceversa.  This leaves both souls fragmented or both their souls are not whole anymore. Part has been taken by the other, leaving a feeling of incompleteness or insufficiency to the other.  If a major part has been taken away, this results to severe depression, emotional incapacity, psychological issues and withdrawal.

In deep loving relationships, soul fragmentation happens in chunks. Couples who love each other tend to give almost all of themselves and at the same time, want to take almost the whole being of the other. This emotion is put into spiritual action during the sexual union. They fragment each other’s soul and the exchange is done with full permission.   When a partner leaves, he/she takes with him/her that which was originally part of the other. That is why it takes years for one to truly and completely move on or get over the other partner if they get separated or one dies.  This gives credibility to the lines, “I feel so broken and empty now that she’s gone”, and, “He took my heart with him when he left”.

In a non-loving casual sex scenario, fragmentation happens but in very different ways.  The fragmentation occurs because one is only attracted to that part of the person.  The soul that is needy of that particular attribute takes it away from the other’s soul.  This leaves the other feeling something is missing and yet clueless about it.  The person fragmented or unwhole will feel emptiness, a sense of unfulfillment and unfaithfulness. He/she will constantly have multiple partners, because of the subconscious need to search for the soul’s missing parts.

It is also interesting to note that during the sexual union, both partners tend to feed on each other’s energy and the ingestion is very powerful.  It is usually the weaker one that feeds on the stronger.  Here is an example.  Have you ever noticed a steady couple with the man being years older from his mate and yet it seems like the woman looks almost as matured as him?  What caused this could be explained this way:  The man, being older, has a weaker life force as compared to his woman.  Every time they have sex, he tends to suck much of the woman’s youth energy.  This makes him physically stronger and potent and leaves the woman, partially depleted of her youthful energy and appearance. She, out of her love for him, was unaware yet shared part of her youth to him. And because the imparting of such energy was done in love, she will look older but she will not be sickly. 

This feeding also happens in cases where there is no love involved. It is a form of energy vampirism because the energy sucked from the sex partner was not given willingly by the other soul. For example, an old rich man pays for the sexual service of a young female.  This old man will feed off her youth during the opening of their auras without her conscious permission.  She has been vampired and preyed upon, by the old man, of energy she unwilling lost and this will result to her looking haggard and feeling weak. If this young lady goes on having paid sex with older men, she will, soon enough look old and will have all kinds of recurrent infections and diseases.

The case just mentioned is not far from rape or forced sex scenarios.  Victims of this kind of sexual union become depressed and sickly.  How did this come to be?  Let me explain in a simple scientific way.

When anyone or a female, for example, is forced into sex, her body undergoes severe stress.  This stress triggers an alarm from her hypothalamus (a tiny region at the base of the brain).  This electrical and chemical alarm signals her adrenal glands to secrete two stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones suppress the digestive, reproductive and immune systems to allow a focus of energy for a fight or flight reaction.  If the stress stays for too long, her body will begin to weaken because the three bodily systems are not processing normally.  Much acid will be produced from the digestive system and released into the blood stream.  This makes the body acidic and such an environment is host to all illnesses and diseases.  The immune system is continually placed on a halt, thereby making the body open and weak against sickness.  The reproductive system which is still suppressed, will exhibit symptoms of hormonal imbalances in the female and sex related problems.

 

The Aftermath of Casual Sex

Casual Sex is not shallow at all and the trail of devastation it brings to the persons involved is horrendous.

Since the astral bodies (spirit bodies) and auras of both partners unite during liberated sex, many traits, habits and vices that one has will be shared by the other.  Aside from those, all unpleasant energies and karma, including present and future illnesses will be passed to the other. Even unfavorable spirits attached to one will be received by the other. Curses will also be shared.

Casual sex is never motivated by love.   A negative feeling, like lust or fear is what fuels it. Since this act is empowered by a negative source, only the dark and bad in one’s aura is transferred to the other. Have you ever heard of a poor prostitute who became instantly rich after having sex with a rich man (Unless the rich man falls in love with the prostitute and takes her as his permanent mate)? No.  It is usually the rich man who will have financial difficulties after such acts.  The “richness” of the man was not shared to the prostitute because there were the negative energies of lust for the flesh (rich man) and fear to have no money (prostitute) in the act.  This allowed the energy of financial difficulty from the prostitute to transfer to the rich man.  (Please note that I have nothing against prostitutes.  I have deep respect for them as humans and for braving such difficulties and risks just to earn a living for their loved ones.)

In a loving sexual relationship, even the good talents, gifts, abilities and blessings can be passed to each other.  Love will allow the movement of positive baggage from one aura to another.

After intercourse, the person will begin experiencing whatever sense of reality the other one has.  Events and incidences commonly attracted by the other will now be magnetized by this person.  Even the other’s emotional state and vices will manifest in this person’s life.

Unexplained sadness, emptiness, confusion or guilt are the early symptoms one will experience after casual sex.  One’s way of thinking will begin to change and get distorted.  One will begin liking different things or activities. Habits will shift, including hobbies. Mood changes will be frequent, including feeling easily drained and sick. Even changing tastes and lifestyles will manifest in a short time.  Eventually, the deep effects of a fragmented soul will surface causing depression and hopelessness. In the end, one’s authentic self will be will be drowned and lost.

I recall a singer friend of mine several years ago.  I knew her as someone who didn’t drink alcoholic beverage.  She once had this infatuation with one of her admirers.  He was a middle aged business man who frequented the lounge she was working at.  He always looked haggard and he would always drink several bottles of beer before leaving.  He watched her perform almost every night.   She finally went to bed with him around three times for a span of two weeks.  I noticed subtle changes in her in their early casual sex activities.  She was harsher in her words and she began looking tired all the time.  What really called my attention was her suddenly fancy in beer drinking.

A close relative of mine is another example of the sharing of bad luck in casual sex.  He was a very successful business man.  He had a fine wife and a beautiful family.  All was well in his life until he entered into a new type of business which required him to buy-out his clients through wine and women.  This strategy was essential to win certain contracts.  He was earning millions with just a single deal.  Because he always had to up stay late away from his family, his wife started demanding that he just quit that kind of business.  He got fed up with her bickering and began sleeping with the high class prostitutes he used to win his clients with.  He eventually found one of them whom he chose to have regular sexual relations with. He was promiscuous for years. He spiraled into alcoholism.  I used to admire him for his refined, dignified and classy personality but he changed.  He turned into a vulgar and cheaply dressed gambler.  In as fast as 3 years, his businesses were shutting down one by one.  His children were going astray and his wife was always sick and depressed (She too was affected by the negative karma passed on to her by her husband).  He himself began having health problems.  They sold their properties one after the other just to be able to pay their bills.  In the end, he died very poor because of incurable diseases and he was not even able to afford any form of hospitalization.

This relative of mine shared the karmic load of the prostitutes he had casual sex with.  These women were poor and they had no choice but to sell their bodies to survive.  He absorbed these negativities in his aura.   He too experienced their poverty.  His aura was open as well to other negative entities that fed on him until his death.  Promiscuity, alcoholism, gambling and the extreme changes in his personality were obvious effects.

I would like to add that the detrimental effects of casual sex go beyond a person’s generation. The dark energies which the person inherited from his casual sex partner will stay with him and flourish even to his children and grand children. These opportunistic beings are transferred when one’s child is born.  They will stay and camp close to the child until the time comes that they succeed in gaining entrance to its aura through vices such as free sex, drugs, alcoholism, smoking, gaming addiction, pornography or other forms of destructive activities. Once they gain entrance, the vicious cycle of desolating the soul begins. If not healed, these negative entities will live within their bloodline for generations.

When I was analyzing this relative’s story, I discovered that his father was also a womanizer.  My relative was an only son.  He lost his promiscuous father early in life and he alone worked his way to financial success, until the dark entities his father unknowingly passed to him, found a way to gain entrance into his aura.  These dark beings set him up by using money.  Then they prepared more traps until he fell into free sex.  This let them gain entrance into his astral body and his life.

I just learned recently this relative’s son got separated from his wife because she caught him sleeping around. He also was doing drugs already.   This is a sign that the so called “demons” that ruined his grandfather and father had gained access into his life, as well.

This explains why we often notice that patterns are repeated through generations.  For example, a drunkard usually had an alcoholic parent.  A philandering wife had an unfaithful parent. A drug addict had drug addicts for parents.  A heavy chain smoker had a parent just like him, and so on.

It is essential to know that when you engage in casual sex, you not only receive whatever karma and negative baggage your partner has. You also inherit all other loads this partner received from her/his other casual sex partners. Just imagine all the ugly and heavy burdens of so many people you don’t even know, transferring and taking permanent residence in your aura and taking control of your life! You essentially become someone you don’t know or you don’t ever want to be.

Liberated sex creates soul ties which transcend time and space. When one dies, if he was not healed of the ruin he did to his astral body, all that he received from others through casual sex will follow and affect him in future incarnations.  The unlearned lessons or karma of others, now his as well, will be added to the hurdles he will have to master and overcome in succeeding lifetimes.

Healing the Self

For you to be totally healed from the destruction brought about by casual sex,  you have to undergo spiritual cord cutting, entity attachment removal and soul retrieval.  These are usually done for you by expert healers and shamans.  But what if you live in a place where you can’t find any of these types of people?  And what if you don’t have the money to avail of their services?  Will you be doomed and should you start feeling hopeless?

I was born a healer.  I knew how to perform spiritual techniques long before I knew how to read.  As the years passed, I was informed of my mission:  TO TEACH AND REMIND HUMANITY (of who they really are) AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, TO RE-EMPOWER THEM.

I am including, in this article, my personal and tested method on how you can cut the cords you have between the people you had casual sex with and how to detach from spirits that have deeply attached themselves on you, by yourself.  You have the power to do this.  Believe that you could and it will happen.

I will write separately on Soul Fragmentation and Soul Retrieval.  These are different topics and how to do this is different. Also, soul retrieval takes a while.  The soul parts you lost through casual sex, after soul retrieval, may return in as fast as 5 minutes and as long as you can imagine.  

I purposely prioritized the spiritual cord cutting and spirit attachment methods to immediately put a stop to the pain in your life. These should also be done to avoid further harm you may cause to any partner you currently have. 

Soul Retrieval must be done as an immediate follow up because you have to be whole again.  Soul Fragmentation means one’s soul has parts missing.  This results to restlessness, constantly looking for “happiness” in things and people, hopelessness, a feeling of loss and severe depression and discontentment.  People with fragmented souls don’t find fulfillment in any relationship.  They eventually develop addictions and vices to satisfy a need or yearning they cannot identify.

As I said,  you have the free gift to heal yourself.  But if you doubt, it would be best to seek the professional  help of a shaman or experienced healer.

(For people who live in the Philippines, please think several times before seeking help from albularyos, manggagamots and peddlers in Quiapo.  You may be doing more harm to yourself if you are not careful.  Make sure you get help from true Light Healers.)

If you have engaged in casual sex and wish to end the destructive cycle, begin by admitting to yourself that you made a mistake.  You need to determine the cause of an illness in order for you to administer the proper cure.

Once you sincerely realize the wrong you have done to your body, recognize the damage you have also inflicted in the life of the one you had casual sex with.

“A humble and penitent heart is one that heaven listens to.” This is what my Higher Self told me when I was still so little, and I never forget it.  Be humble enough to admit and confess your mistake through prayer. 

  1.  Call on your Godhead, your Higher Self and all your protective guardians to assist you in this releasing.  Ask them to surround you, protect you and empower you to accomplish this task.  Ask them to shut your space away from all lower forms of entities and energies.

  1.  Call on your other selves from other lifetimes who also engaged in the same activity and unite with them in one body.  See yourself merging with each one of them until you all become one.

  1.  Call on your guardian healers to surround you. 

  1.  Visualize cords stemming from your body and connecting to the body of the one/s you had casual sex with. This will include people in this lifetime and all other incarnations you had.  These cords are what still link your aura and astral body to others.  Ask your healing guardians to help you see all these cords. 

  1.  

  2. 5.  Ask your Godhead or Higher Self to give you the most powerful cutting device you will be using to sever all these cords from your body.  Say thank you and proceed by cutting each cord one by one until all cords have been cut.

  1.  See yourself free from the entanglements from these people and ask your healing guardians to assist you in sealing off the parts from which you cut the cords.  Seal these “wounds” with forgiveness and love.  If you don’t seal each part properly, these chords will grow back and re-attach to the same person again, so don’t be in a hurry in sealing.

  1.  After you have sealed your side, send your sincerest apologies to the ones you had casual sex with.  Send forgiveness as well, for the damage they have caused you.  Then say “I love you,” (and mean it).  Ask your healing guardians to help you seal their end of their severed cord with love.  This should be done so that they won’t attach themselves to other people.

8.   Now that you have been freed, ask your protective guardians to find all hiding and deeply latched negative energies and entities in your aura and astral body/soul.  Ask them to gently escort these entities away from your energy field and away from your space. Your guardians will know where to send them. Bid these entities goodbye and send them forgiveness, love and an honest from the heart, thank you.  Wait!  You must be wondering why you should be nice to these “demons” and worse, send them a sincere “thank you”. You must realize that these entities have played a crucial role in helping you learn more about life and pain. Their inflictions helped you gain strength in ways we will only realize in some other time.  They, no matter how dark, deserve our gratitude.  Never gloat at them or say anything damaging or hurting to them.  Instead, have mercy on them and send them healing so that they may find the way back to the light.  Learn to treat others the way you want to be treated when you have done something wrong. Remember that we learn from making mistakes and experiencing pain. So be nice.

  1.  Next, ask your healers to begin healing the deep wounds these entities caused you.  Ask them to energize you so that you look all brand new and shiny. 

  1.  With the help of your protectors, seal your aura, your astral body and physical body so that such entities will never be able to enter again.  Use a protective shield of your liking and program it with whatever you wish it to do. Say thank you and I love you to your shield.  These words will strengthen it further.

  1.  Lastly, look at all your guardians and thank them all so much for the assistance, healing and love they sent you.  Do the same with your Godhead and your Higher Self.  End your session by telling them and yourself that you will now be very cautious and protective of your physical and spiritual bodies.  Then, mean it.

These cord cutting and healing sessions are a very exhausting and laborious task.  Do it when you are not tired and when you are in a good mood. Don’t be in a hurry when you are in the process. This work is only for cutting the connections with other people and healing some of the damages.  Again, a different healing session is needed for Soul Retrieval. 

(For questions or assistance, you can email me : crystaltouch333@gmail.com )

In closing, remember that your body, no matter how imperfect, is sacred.  It is where your divine soul resides. Treat your body with love and respect.  After all, it is the only one that you can really call yours in this life. If you want to be loved the right way, start by loving yourself, your body, the right way. When you do this, you will attract the same energy. You will find the kind of love you have always wanted.

Only give yourself (in sex) to someone you are willing to share your whole life with.  Reserve your body for someone you will love enough, to make you willing to accept all that this person can bring into your life: good or bad.  It is only love that can heal the hurts, pains and burdens another has.

Remember Never have sex with someone you don’t want to  become.

  Can You Even Be Married?  While this may sound like a question of ignorance, in view of the above two articles, modern man and woman should seriously rethink the reality of the question presented. 

 

Spouse is always aware of the unfaithfulness of the other partner.   In the case of women, their more developed Intuitive abilities makes her aware of her partners unfaithfulness.    Further, the Soul or Higher-Self of both partners can observe and receive the thoughts of the other person.   There is no action that a perspective person makes -- there is no thought that the perspective person entertains -- that is not fully known by the higher Soul-Self of the other person in a relationship.  

 

Soul-Fragmentation:

 


  Invoking Grace In Response To Sexual Immorality: The vast majority of people reading this article have been seduced by our hedonist culture and spiritually disenfranchised academia, and have all engaged in sex with many partners.   Our modern culture promotes what can be portrayed as recreational sex.  Which provokes the question:  Is there a way to restore ourselves to a pure and undefiled state?   The answer is no.     While the Hawaiian Huna portrayed these connections with others as Aka chords -- which to some degree parallels the Hindu concept of chakra chords -- while there are ways that the connections between women and their past sexual partners can be weakened, with the possible exception of physical death, they can never be entirely eliminated.  The problem is seen in the fact that modern science is only now beginning to understand the connections that exist between people.   When I was a speaker at The Conference For Consciousness And Human Evolution (see LINK), I for the first time became aware of the work of Amit Goswami (see LINK).    Amit, who is a Theoretical physicist at the University of Oregon, had conducted an experiment whereby he demonstrated the basic connection that exists between people.   Amit selected two pairs of subjects. The first pair met and created a bond between them (aka cord). They were then separated; each was placed in a separate Faraday cage (a copper sealed space) and moved 20 meters from each other. They could not see each other and did not know the purpose of the experiment. When one of the subjects was stimulated by a rapidly flashing light, the other subject showed corresponding electrical activity in the visual cortex. The second set of subjects did not meet or bond and the rapid light stimulation of one subject’s brain did not influence the other subject’s brain waves.   Thus, while Amit established the very simple connective link that takes place between people -- a link which the Hawaiian Huna learned to heal by cutting this aka link -- the connections made through sexual interaction are not only permanent, but often transcend lifetimes.  

Many Hasidic Rabbis do not shake hands -- and do not touch anyone but their wives -- so as not to establish a connection with the other person which will impact their consciousness.   This difficult subject is somewhat explained at Chabad.org On Shaking Hands where it is stated: "What is the rationale for the Jewish prohibition on men and women touching, let alone shaking hands?  The prohibition of touching (in Hebrew negiah) goes back to the Book of Leviticus (18:6 and 18:19) and was developed further in the Talmud. A person who observes this prohibition is often called a shomer negiаh. It applied not only to close contact such as hugging and kissing, but also to shaking hands or patting on the back. The practice is generally followed by traditionally observant Jews, both men and women, including Hassidic Jews, and those who are referred to as Haredim." 

While attempting to cut the connections in the Ćtheric does some good, it does not alleviate the problem entirely.  But with spiritual knowledge and the living of a Consecrated Life, the man and woman can move on and make greater progress together.  Over the course of time the connections do weaken, and the Law of Grace can be invoked which will further lessen the influences of those with whom we have had intimate connections in the past.   How is the Law of Grace Invoked?   Only through a change in mind and lifestyle -- along with assisting others in not making the same mistake.   When you convey to others the consequences of casual sex with a multitude of partners -- making them aware of the pitfalls -- then you invoke the Law of Grace by saving others from the pitfalls of your own past. 

A true Gnostic does not attempt to dissolve the "I" as stated by Samael Aun Weor above -- but rather, a seeker/disciple is able to use the ego-self as a catalyst to spawn greater growth and development.  The exchange of vital life-force has the potential to supply the Impressions that act as the final food in the Law of Octaves in the dynamic mental exchange between husband and wife.  When it is realized that the forbidden fruit of the (outer columns of the Tree of Life) is the male/female Impressions in the Tree of Duality that have not been brought together in the Center Column of the Tree of Life, then you can begin to understand the dynamics of the higher mind and the teaching in the Gospel of Thomas: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom" (see Gospel of Thomas saying #22).  

  The Holographic Pattern Of Sex: In beginning to understand the above patterns of a hologram, what man perceives as sex and procreation, is merely a sub-pattern in the physical that is true at each higher level within the holographic Divine Pattern.   In the same way that an ovum and sperm must become united and evolved in order to bring about the manifestation of human life, when man and woman are understood as a cosmic sperm and ovum on the next level of the hologram (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) -- and it is recognized that male and female is representative of half of the whole from a higher soul-perspective -- then the dynamics of the male/female relationship must be seen and understood as two halves coming together in order to create a soul-level embryo within themselves.    In the same way that the two halves of the heart cannot be seen as separate from each other -- and in like manner, the two lungs, the two testis and ovaries, and the two halves/hemispheres of the brain -- it is not until man and woman are understood as two halves of the one, that the biblical reality of the Divine Marriage can be understood.   As stated in the above in  The Trinity And The Divine Pattern Of Creation, a most important teaching which was removed from the Gospels is preserved in the Second Epistle of Clement where Jesus teaches on the coming of the Kingdom in the words: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.    How can  "...the male with the female [be] neither male nor female’”?    The answer: When the two become "one flesh" within a Spiritual Divine Marriage -- which holographically merges the husband/wife into a spiritual embryo in the pattern of the physical embryo that becomes a fetus.   As stated in the above quotation: "Biologist Rupert Sheldrake's theory of morphic resonance also depends upon similarity in vibration... loving couples -- resonate in more focused zones of vibration; they have access to their own "private frequency.' In fact, Sheldrake goes even further and suggests that morphic fields can explain how human memory operates. Instead of being stored in our brains, he suggests that memories are stored in the morphic field. Our brains then pick them up via resonance, like radios tuning to their own private stations."    

In the above subheading on The Divine Counterpart and The Soul, I reference the works of both Philip K. Dick, G.I.Gurdjieff and Emerson who all portray the physical personality as a false-self or ego-self that is oblivious to the true being of the higher soul-self.   In the writings of what Gurdjieff called The Fourth Way, an organic system is presented whereby man emits what I portray as vital life-force, which I relate in the above to the inheritance that the prodigal son squanders away on "riotous" living -- i.e., (quoting) That those who, as the prodigal son who squandered away his inheritance -- i.e., his vital life-force and bio-energies -- which portray people who defile their body and choose to live as heathen beasts -- thereby  "...destroys and pollutes, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices”  (see Logos) -- and because of this defilement and pollution, they dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see  The Outer Darkness ) that causes them to be blind to man's own higher reality of soul and the Kingdom.    In the Divine Marriage I demonstrate where, in the vast majority of instances, the Creative Force is passed from the male to the female -- and then, because of lack of development and/or connections in the Etheric that defiles the union and makes Marriage in the Spiritual impossible, the vital life-force is lost into Nature.    Yet, when the Creative Force and the vital life-force of the male and female is channeled within the Marriage -- and raised up in the development of a soul-seeker husband and wife -- the vital life-force is channeled within the union into the Morphic Field -- harnessing the very Laws and Forces of Creation as brought forth by Creator-God --  which inhibits and even stops the vital life-force from being lost into Nature -- bringing about the Spiritual Evolution of the Divine Marriage through The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- creating within the husband and wife a Morphic Field that has the power to transform and initiate the next stage of birth.

Not only can the dynamic spiritual-embryo of husband and wife generate the necessary impressions which are used to bring about the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind that enables them to comprehend at a higher and more enlightened level than the rest of mankind -- but they have access to a very personalized morphic field.    In the findings of Sheldrake: "Morphic field is a term introduced by Sheldrake. He proposes that there is a field within and around a morphic unit which organizes its characteristic structure and pattern of activity. According to this concept, the morphic field underlies the formation and behaviour of holons and morphic units, and can be set up by the repetition of similar acts or thoughts. The hypothesis is that a particular form belonging to a certain group, which has already established its (collective) morphic field, will tune into that morphic field. The particular form will read the collective information through the process of morphic resonance, using it to guide its own development. This development of the particular form will then provide, again through morphic resonance, a feedback to the morphic field of that group, thus strengthening it with its own experience, resulting in new information being added (i.e. stored in the database). (see Morphic Field).  

In the case of a Spiritual Divine Marriage, the Morphic Field becomes the expanded spheres of mind of the husband and wife, which harmonious resonance provides them access to, to the exclusion of all other people.   But, when the dynamics of male and female is rightfully understood, what is presented in Sheldrake's morphic field is only the beginning of the process.    Because of the Oneness and Wholeness of the Marriage which brings together the divided spheres of the Tree of Duality (see The Trinity And The Divine Pattern Of Creation) -- which Wholeness and Unity provides access to what is portrayed as the fruit of the Tree of Life -- this fulfillment of the Laws and Forces opens a gateway for both husband and wife to manifest and access their higher soul-selves (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) that is the true being that they are.    

The scriptures condemn adultery and sex outside of the marriage union, because as stated in the above in Gender Blindness, the people (and especially the woman) remains connected on an etheric level to each person they have had sex with.   Since it is the dynamics of sexual interaction and the exchange of bodily fluids that unites the two halves into one unit, then the impressions from each previous sexual partner uses these etheric connections.   That these connections in the Etheric Fields of the people involved in the sexual unions often result in the bombardment of negative thoughts, is a reality that was known and understood by the Mystic authors of the Torah and Gospels.   Further, the disruptions caused by these connections in the Etheric Field of the individual, are often the cause of physical disease and maladies, because these negative connections not only interfere with the flow of vital life-force, but drain the person of necessary energy needed to bring about the expansion of the mind, through connections to others.     In the case of the Woman at the Well who could not receive the Living Waters due to the fact that she did not have a husband (see Woman At The Well), her connection to five other men was easily seen and detected by Jesus, because the connections were observed in her Etheric Field/Mind.   Moreover, because she was anchored to five men -- and could not therefore even have a husband -- her lifestyle and mindset inhibited her from receiving the Living Waters of the Spirit (see  Lilith, The Demonic Reality Of The Modern Feminist Movement ).   And it was for this very reason with respect to connections in the Etheric Field/Mind that anchored people to this world, that Jesus condemned even looking on another person who was not your spouse with lust -- i.e., "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matt 5:27-28 NKJ - see Divine Pattern).   Did Jesus pronounce in the Gospels that it's OK to embrace the culture of this world -- to pursue the life of a whore, or in the case of men, to be a whoremonger?   No, in fact he stated to the woman at the well that she could not receive the Living Waters, because of her (Etheric) connections to five other men who inhibited her from even having a husband.  

Sexual purity between husband and wife, on the other hand, can bestow upon the couple all the blessings and advantages of the Laws, without any negative detriments whatsoever.    In the same way that a sperm and ovum are paired opposites that have been Created for the express purpose of bringing about birth and life, so too does man and woman remain within this Divine Pattern (see Cosmic Ovum And Sperm).   The Laws of Creator-God have insured that, within the environment of the Divine Marriage is all the elements of mind and being on a physical, mental/soul and spiritual level, to bring about ultimate spiritual blessings and success.  

If it is true that our very physical bodies represent the alchemical Philosopher's Stone upon which the transformation from base to precious substance must be brought about, then the long ignored statement of Paul must be revisited through more enlightened eyes of understanding -- i.e., "Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!  Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For 'the two,' He says, 'shall become one flesh.'  But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.  Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Cor 6:15-20 NKJ).   

What does it mean that any other sin is outside your body, while sexual immorality is a sin against your own body -- which body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit?   And what is the Temple of the Holy Spirit?   Why, it is the Final Temple that is allegorically portrayed in the scriptures (see Temple).   And it's transformation is the application of the Laws within the construct of a Consecrated Divine Marriage, that brings about the subsequent stages of birth that Jesus stated was necessary to enter in the inner Kingdom.   

In the same way that the first stage of birth is brought about through the interaction of male and female in the creation of a fetus -- and Jesus taught that you must be born again to achieve the next stage of birth and entrance into the Kingdom -- the article The Divine Marriage demonstrates how Spiritual Husband and Wife can invoke the Laws and Forces of Creation within themselves, in order to bring about the necessary Spiritual Transformation that initiates the next stage of soul-birth.   Yet, the very environment of Marriage has been destroyed -- with great harm inflicted upon the young impressionable minds of children, with the resulting defilment associated with our sexualized cultural lifestyle (see  Lilith, The Demonic Reality Of The Modern Feminist Movement ) -- which has deprived the people of even the opportunity of receiving their inheritance as the offspring of God.    Moreover, our culture has robbed the people of understanding both the reason and potential of their gender differences.  

Once again the words of Dr Luan Brizendine in her book entitled, The Female Mind are of primary importance to understand where she writes that: "There is no unisex brain. Girls arrive already wired as girls, and boys arrive already wired as boys. Their brains are different by the time they're born, and their brains are what drive their impulses, values and their very reality. I know it is not politically correct to say this but I've been torn for years between my politics and what science is telling us. I believe women actually perceive the world differently from men. If women attend to those differences they can make better decisions about how to manage their lives."    As a husband or wife, it is absolutely necessary not only to recognize this difference which is the result of being opposite polarities within the One, but it is necessary to foster those differences and innate abilities which cause man and woman to see and perceive the world differently -- and often, opposite from one another.    As explained in the article The Divine Marriage , not only must a man or woman not expect their spouse to see and perceive the world as they do -- but they must permit the thoughts, the perceptions, and the impressions of their spouse, to expand their consciousness -- while maintaining a connection with their native gender reality.    As stated in the book Brain Sex, by Anne Moir and David Jessel, where they wrote: "Men are different from women. They are equal only in their common membership of the same species, humankind. To maintain that they are the same in aptitude, skill or behaviour is to build a society based on a biological and scientific lie".    With the warning that: "What you will read in this book about the differences between men and women may make both sexes angry or smug. Both reactions are wrong. If women have reason to rage, it is not because science has set at naught their hard-won struggle towards equality; their wrath should rather be directed at those who have sought to misdirect and deny them their very essence".    And in appraising the vast difference in the feminine intuitive mind from it's male opposite, the authors conclude that "Women should contribute their specific female gifts rather than waste their energies in the pursuit of a sort of surrogate masculinity. A woman’s greater imagination can solve intractable problems - be they professional or domestic - at one apparently intuitive stroke."

A woman who has been indoctrinated by our culture and system of education to think as a surrogate man -- a condition which forces her to reject not only her own innate intuitive cognitive powers of mind and being that most men not only don't possess, but reject because they don't understand these feminine abilities -- will be forced to greatly struggle to undo the harm that was inflicted upon her by our culture.   In the same way that many indigenous cultures inflict harm through genital mutilation of the female at puberty, our own western culture inflicts harm through the mental mutilation of robbing a woman of her inherent gifts that not only separates -- but can be seen as saving her male counterpart from his genetic fate and limitations which invoke his death through the failure to achieve the next stage of birth.     In the same way that an egg needs a sperm, and a sperm needs an egg, in order to fulfill its destiny, there is a higher soul and spiritual reality that can only be achieved when a man and woman enters into a true Divine Marriage.   And the building blocks which bring about this second stage of birth, is not only the invocation of the Laws -- but the nourishment of thoughts and impressions which bring about the spiritual objective presented in the above Spiritual objective of "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.  

While men and women have interacted sexually, emotionally and culturally since the dawn of time itself, their gain is usually at a snails pace at best.   It is not until both the man and woman become cognizant of the mental void that immersed each of them in opposite prisons -- becoming conscious of their own shortfalls and genetically inherited strengths -- that they can begin to solve the perplexing riddle of the gender differences.    And becoming cognizant of ones voids as a man or woman, is merely the beginning of the path to overcome the shackles of those voids that inhibit man's progress.

Spiritual Alchemy represents the transformation of self that fulfills the requirement that makes the two "one flesh" -- and by brining this transformation about, enables the seeker/disciple to restore Wholeness within themselves.   In the many allegorical accounts presented in the Gospels, Jesus healed by brining about Wholeness -- but few believers understand what this means.    In the allegorical account of Genesis, Adam was in Wholeness only when Eve was united to him -- and they are often portrayed as such in Jewish Mysticism.    In the same way that the second day of Creation is the only day not portrayed as being good, all division and separation brings death from the perspective of the higher reality of being.   Adam and Eve were warned not to eat the fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil) -- and yet, few biblical students are able to take this allegorical reality, and extend the pattern into every aspect of life.   

On a level of mind, the individual thoughts of a man or woman, represent the fruit of the Tree of Duality.   And in the same way that an ovum or sperm can be seen individually, it must also be understood that from an individual perspective, the destiny of an individual ovum or sperm is death.    And in taking the pattern to the next level of Creation and birth, this is also true of man and woman.   On a mental level, the thoughts, perceptions and impressions of a man and woman, represent the fruit of the Tree of Duality.   And in the same way that in the allegory of the Genesis Account, man was banished from the Garden so they could not put forth their hand and eat also of the Tree of Life and inherit Eternal Life, the duality of man and woman can only be overcome when they join and become "one flesh", in a Divine Marriage .   And you must take the fruit of duality which is the gender based mindset, thoughts and impressions, and bring about a third-force balance that bears the fruit of the Tree of Life.

In revisiting some of the foundational concepts that reveals to us the higher spiritual reality, the statement in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, that "...From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see Heightening And Expansion Of Mind), with that of Einstein's that "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." (see Intuitive vs Rational-linear) -- it is the interaction of higher elevated thoughts and impressions (see Impressions As Food), and the resonance of the husband and wife within a Divine Marriage builds what Rupert Sheldrake portrays as a Morphic Field (see Gender Blindness And Birth) that only the husband and wife have access to -- which evolves the Union through the interaction of the Intuitive-Feminine and the Linear-Male.   

 

 

 

  Breaking Out Of The Time Continuum Box: It is virtually impossible to walk the path of True Enlightenment, without breaking the Time-Continuum Box in which man's organic three-dimensional consciousness remains a prisoner of.    Our reality is this: While organic man is locked into his present time-frame, his True-Self is not.  And in view of the fact that Time is a dimension of mind and consciousness, the mind of our True-Self spans and encompasses all the personalities that the Soul has lived (soul-personalities) since the Alpha or Dawn of Time, right up to the Present, and is projected into what we would call the Future into the Omega of Creation. 

While man in his organic condition of mind observes or experiences an event in his life, what he fails to see is the pre-existing condition that initiated that event, and the downstream result of his actions.   In fact, modern man for the most part remains totally ignorant of the pre-existing causal factors which initiate all events in his life that he experiences.   And in like manner, modern man remains ignorant of the reality that by virtue of his words, thoughts, actions and deeds, he is orchestrating his future.   But even more important is the fact that because of the paradoxical reality that both the linear and non-linear realities of Time are both True -- and the Duality of Time can only be resolved within the higher reality of the Soul -- and ultimately within the Mind (Logos) of Creator-God -- until the seeker is prepared to embrace the fact that both paradoxical realities of Time are equally true, and open their minds to the higher Third-Force Balance that merges both sides of the paradox into ONE, then no spiritual progress can be made beyond a certain point. 

While I considered making this subject a stand-alone web article, without understanding the higher reality of the Soul and the Pattern or Cosmology of Mind and Being that is presented in the foregoing article, it would be impossible to break out of the organic limitations of physical consciousness.   In the Bible these three-dimensional limitations are portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which has it parallel in the analogy of Plato's Cave (see Plato).    When the disciples ask Jesus why he spoke only in parables to the people, it was because of their organic three-dimensional limitations imposed upon them by the physical body and consciousness -- i.e., "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34) -- having explained to his disciples with respect to those who were portrayed as being "without": "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand..." (Mark 4:11-12 ASV).   These profound statements should provoke the reader to ask: It, as it is stated, Jesus could only speak to the multitudes of hearers in parables, then what enabled the very few to comprehend the true spiritual meaning of what Jesus was stating, while the vast majority only understood the outer facade of the allegorical story?   And unless you come to the reality of this statement and question first, it will be in vain that you read the Gospels. 

In the Gospel accounts, there were the very few who were portrayed as being In The House who could receive the higher spiritual knowledge, which the vast majority of people could not.   Why couldn't the vast majority of hearers -- as well as those who today attempt to read the Gospel accounts -- not be able to comprehend the Higher Spiritual Meaning of what was and is being conveyed?   Because they dwelt in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   The word translated "explained", in the phrase "And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples", literally translated from the Greek into English means to "unloose or untie" -- i.e., what has been "bound or sealed up" -- and "what is obscure and hard to understand" (from Thayer's Greek Lexicon).   And the word translated secret or mystery, makes reference to an esoteric knowledge that can only be revealed spiritually to one who is "in the House", because it is beyond the organic comprehension of those who are portrayed as being "without", or "outside" the House.    The term "open and unloose" the mind, was also used in the Gospel as the path to entering the Inner Kingdom (see Open & Unloose The Mind).  With respect to the reality of those who are portrayed in the Gospels as being "without", in contradistinction to those who are said to be In The House, the quotation of the early Church Father Origen represents an excellent portrayal of the reality of mind and being that is presented in these words of Jesus -- wherein, Origen writes in reply to the allegations of Celsus that the Church is a secret system (see The Secret Doctrine): “I have not yet spoken of the observances of all that is written in the gospel, each one of which contains much doctrine difficult to be understood, not merely by the multitude, but even by certain of the more intelligent, including a very profound explanation of the parables, which Jesus delivered to 'those without' while reserving the exhibition of their full meaning for those who have passed beyond the stage of exoteric teachings, and who came to him privately in the house. And when he comes to understand it, he will admire the reason why some are said to be without, and others in the house”.

The "outer darkness" portrays the people of this world who in the parable of the prodigal son, is representative of the people who dwell in this, the Far Country.   And the journey that every person as the prodigal son must make to return Home, through the "narrow gate" ("Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" [Matt 7:13-14]), and it is an inward journey which is accomplished through the expansion and deepening of mind, consciousness and being.   But before any real progress can be made with respect to this Inner Journey, the seeker must have a working knowledge of the Pattern and Cosmology of Mind and Being -- the ignorance of which was the basis of the foregoing assertion by the Apostle Peter in the Epistle of Peter To James where it is stated that if the exoteric knowledge (spiritual meaning of the parables and the scriptures) was to become lost and thrown away, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"  (see Always To Wander In Error).   And this is true not only of the modern Christian world, but also all the other world's religions.   With the problem even made worse, by our present-day educational systems which totally alienate the people from the knowledge of their own Inner Self and Reality.      

What is the Outer Darkness?   Which can be portrayed as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son?   Both of which is portrayed in the analogy of Plato as the Cave of Illusions?   It is a condition of mind and consciousness that only perceives and functions within a very limited three-dimensional reality -- wherein, our True or Soul-Self dwells in a twelve-dimensional reality that is beyond man's organic comprehension (see Mystery Of The Gospel).   And the primary objective of the Original Gospel Teachings, was to provide to organic man who is portrayed as the lost prodigal son, the necessary instructions and knowledge to return Home to the Kingdom of God.   But to accomplish this, the mind of man which is presently in an embryonic condition, but become planted in what is portrayed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, as teh "good ground".   Thus, the conditions must be present, along with the proper nourishment, that will enable the embryonic three-dimensional mind of man to expand and deepen, in the manner of a fine seed which has been planted in the finest earth, in conditions that stimulate and bring forth the maximum of growth and development.    And as presented throughout the foregoing article, an important element in the equation of bringing forth growth and development is Self-Knowledge -- as presented in the words of the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" -- and it is at this point in this article on Self and the Cosmology of Mind and Being, that we must begin to explore the Inner Rooms of the seekers own Mind -- i.e., "The soul...", writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila).   

  Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image: The very opening statement in the Gospel Of Thomas declares: "These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.  And he said, Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death.  Jesus said, Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."    What most people who read these words fail to understand is the fact that, what is presented in the opening statement of Thomas is not a series of secret teachings in the words of man that one must learn and be taught the meaning of in order to enter into the Life that Jesus revealed to mankind -- but rather, the true meaning of not only the Gospel of Thomas, but of all Gospels and scriptures, cannot be known, perceived, understood and comprehended, without Personally Experiencing the Inner Kingdom (Lk 17:20-21) by walking in TheWay (see http://GateOfEden.com ).    To find the true meaning of the sayings of Thomas, the seeker must through their own spiritual experiences, begin to draw near to the Inner Kingdom.   This can also be portrayed as picking up one's own cross and travailing in TheWay in the footsteps of our elder brother Jesus who was the first of the prodigal sons to return Home to the Edenic Kingdom.   Therefore, the Knowledge of the Many Rooms within the House of the Soul, begins with the knowledge of the person you are in this world in relation to your True or Soul-Self.

In the above I have made a number of references to Gospel of Thomas saying 84, where I demonstrate that the religious world's understanding of reincarnation is fatally flawed (see X-Files ).   Which means that the vast majority of religious people simply possess no real understanding of the inner spiritual concepts of their own scriptures and beliefs.   If the ego-self (aka temporal-self, lower-self, carnal or organic self) represents the consciousness of the body -- and the body physically dies -- then this ego-self can't enter the higher spiritual realms.   Why?   Because the true and real self already exists, and the temporal self cannot simply replace that which is real, timeless and eternal.   And at the above link I use an X-Files scenario in order to demonstrate that the person whose consciousness is of the earth, has no real permanence beyond the grave, because it never developed while in the earth, and was ruled over by the carnal nature of man's lower animal nature of the physical body.   With respect to the counterfeit New Age doctrine of reincarnation, such a person that is controlled by the false or ego-self, cannot be said to reincarnate.   The soul-image or essence-self which in Gospel of Thomas saying 84  the true-self generated at conception, never really developed because it was ruled over by the ego-self or false personalities of the organic body, begins to develop after it is freed from the limitations of the body upon physical death.   And as stated in the below, the body-consciousness which is centered in the lower three earthly kingdoms -- being freed from the body-form of the fourth kingdom when the soul-image was implanted at conception -- this body-consciousness which is often called the ego-self, is returned to the forms of the earth that are representative of it's level of evolution.  

What this means is that the whole concept of either reincarnation, or the Christian idea of going to Glory in a Heavenly Kingdom, are both based upon partial truths -- but from man's true higher soul-perspective, must be understood as basically counterfeit.   That is not to say that the essence-self that was generated by the soul-self and projected into the body at conception will cease to exist -- but rather, only when freed from what could constitute a type of imprisonment in the body-vessel, can it begin its development.   At Genesis 2:7, the Wycliffe Commentary writes: “Man's body was fashioned from the dust of the ground, while his spirit came from the very ‘breath’ of God. He is literally a creature of two worlds; both earth and heaven can claim him”.   More importantly, though, is for us to clarify our understanding of when the soul came into existence.   Thus, the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary notes the belief of both the Jews and early Church: “The... views of Origen and other Fathers, and the... Talmudists, that all souls had been created ‘in the beginning,’ and were lodged by God in a certain place, whence each one was taken out to inhabit the respective bodies of individuals”.   In this respect, it can easily be demonstrated the first followers of Jesus firmly believed that the soul pre-existed the body, and that our present physical forms are mere vessels that we inhabit during our sojourn in this life.   And further: If we pose the question as to what was the thinking and mindset of the Jews in the time of Jesus?   In his book, The Antiquity of the Jews, the Jewish historian Josephus, who had lived among the Essenes and was a contemporary of the man Jesus, stated that the Essenes: “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again.  For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”.   If this is true, then what draws the soul into what can be portrayed as a time of captivity or imprisonment in the body?   And if this is true, the question must be posed: Why don't we remember our existence prior to being born into this life?  

Jesus taught that we must be born a second time -- and when the spiritual meaning of the Gospels are rightly understood by properly applying them as the Key of Knowledge, what is presented in the allegorical portrayal of the crucifixion is in fact the process of birth which we all must bring about in our lives.   Moreover, these subsequent stages of birth must be initiated while we still dwell in the physical body.   As stated in the Gospel of Philip "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die" (see http://DivineManna.org ).   The only time that the Kingdom can Come as portrayed in the Gospels, is when a person is still alive in the physical body and is able to bring about the next stage of birth -- and the soul can bring about Wholeness and Balance of the twelve spheres of mind -- thereby, eating the fruit of the Tree of Life -- and accomplishing what Jesus said with respect to the next stage of birth and entering the Kingdom.   Wholeness, must be achieved while in the body-vessel which is of the fourth kingdom -- and has the potential to balance and make the three (3) heavenly spiritual centers, and the three (3) earthly spiritual centers, One.   Without the body-vessel, this cannot be accomplished in an after-death state.   And the suppression of the ego-self or earth-consciousness in the monastic mindset, does not develop that lower point by making it the "good ground" that brings forth Completeness (see The Way Of The Monk).

While what is revealed in the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 may sound strange to the modern Christian, it represents an important foundational teaching that was removed from the Gospels by the later Pagan Church of Rome (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).   What is our true nature and form?   Our soul/higher self is the Being of Light that many people encounter in the published accounts of what is known as the Near Death Experience (see Being Of Light).    And one of the secrets that is unknown today, is the fact that you need not physically die, in order to come into the presence of the Being of Light within you -- i.e., your true soul-self.    In fact, one of the primary objectives of the Gospel is to enable the believer to draw near and actually become At-One with their higher Soul-Self who is a Being of Light -- and thereby prevail over the forces of this world -- manifesting the Heavenly Kingdom within one's self -- and walking the earth as a one's true self, a Being of Light.   But herein lies the problem: Men and Women look at their reflected image in a mirror, and they think they are seeing the true being that they are.   And thus, because of man's own ignorance of his true self and form, this higher reality could not be revealed to men of a carnal mindset who it remains impossible to grasp the higher realities of the soul and the Kingdom of God.   Yet, if each person is to overcome the ignorance of this world with respect to our true nature and form, then it is important to begin to recognize the reality of self that is being portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas saying 84, and is conveyed in the words: (84) Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"   What is being stated?   Saying 84 presents what is portrayed as YOUR LIKENESS, and YOUR IMAGES.   It does not say: When you see God -- and this is because you dwell within the reality of your own soul-self -- and it is your soul-self that is in the above portrayed as "your likeness" that dwells within God.   When rightly understood, we only dwell within God by proxy.    And this is why Paul states to the Corinthians: "But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him" (NKJ) -- which states that those who do not love God, are not even known by Him.   And to the Galatians he writes: "But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?" (Gal 4:9 NKJ) -- few comprehend the reality of the words "...or rather are known by God".  

From a Gospel perspective, that those who can only receive the one talent in the parable of the talents (see Parable Of The Talents), cannot hear the Living Words spoken of at John 5:24 that permits them to "...cross over from death to life” -- because they are the walking dead that Jesus spoke of who cannot hear or see beyond the physical (see The Dead Know Nothing).   Why?  Because they are carnal and their consciousness is grounded in the earth, and have only advanced through the first stage of physical birth, they fail to Know Themselves, and they dwell in the poverty of darkness which is inherent in the womb of Mother-Earth.   With respect to this organic condition of dark ignorance that is expressed by the early Church writer Ephraim, who is called the "great light of the Syrian Church of the fourth century",  when he warned believers: "Thou canst not hear His words, while thou dost not know thyself".    And with respect to our inner soul-self, this great truth is again sounded by the second century Bishop Melito who explained: "Wherefore I counsel thee to know thyself, and to know God. For understand how that there is within thee that which is called the soul — by it the eye seeth, by it the ear heareth...   But why this world was made, and why it passes away, and why the body exists, and why it falls to decay, and why it continues, thou canst not know until thou hast raised thy head from this sleep in which thou art sunk..." (Melito, Bishop of Sardis, Bishop of Ittica, and Bishop of Ittica [AD 160-177]).  

Who are we?   What are we?   Until you can first answer these questions, you will remain totally ignorant of both God and your own higher soul-reality.    We cannot even be known by God, so long as we remain a divided expression of our higher soul-self.    Only, when we overcome our divided natures, and bring about the next stage of birth where we manifest our soul and true-self in the body, can we even begin to Know God, and be Known by God.   The Gospel of Thomas states: "Jesus said, When you see your likeness, you rejoice"  -- and it is this likeness that is our own source of Being -- our soul-self, who is the Being of Light in the Near Death Experience.  And the Gospel of Thomas asks the question: "...But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"    These images which came into being before you, are the past lives that your soul-self has previously lived, that have all failed to bring about the next stage of soul-birth that Jesus taught was necessary to enter the Kingdom -- and thus, these past life images remain only as the experiences of failed lives that never became manifest.   The reality of man’s plight in this world is that he is an embryonic image of his pre-existent soul that has entered into this realm in order to perfect those laws and elements that he must overcome.   In the same way that a fetus is an embryonic copy of its parents, our mind is an embryonic image of our soul.   In the same way a fetus must grow and mature in accordance with the pattern of its parents, our mind must grow and mature in the pattern of our soul.   When our mind grows in the culture of this world, and becomes alienated from our soul, then our life becomes synonymous with the miscarriage of a fetus whose defect fails to develop it in accordance with its physical genetic pattern.

  The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man: Returning to the statements and facts presented in the subheading The Great Allegory Of Mind And Matter, when the reality is understood that we are ultimately dwelling within the  Mind of God -- i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28 NIV) -- and this biblical statement of fact is connected with the statement of  James Jeans that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”.    Or the words of Arthur Eddington:  “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff” -- then we can begin to contemplate the higher reality of the soul within the foundational construct of what is biblically portrayed as the Alpha and the Omega of Creation.   To understand the relationship of the "images" in Gospel of Thomas Saying 84 (see above), to the higher reality of the soul as the Being of Light, it is imperative to comprehend that, not only Time does not exist (see Time May Not Exist) as portrayed within the limitations of unenlightened human perception, but it is impossible to understand the higher reality of the soul without comprehending that Time is a dimension of mind that can be moved in by those who overcome the limits of organic consciousness.    With respect to Time and the Alpha (beginning) of Creation and the Omega (end), the Gospel of Thomas states: (18) The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us how our end will be."  Jesus said, "Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death."  

In the foregoing I demonstrate the fraudulent nature of man's common belief in reincarnation by using the Gospel of Thomas Saying 84 as a point of reference.   This is not to say that the Soul which is Eternal does not spiritually evolve over the course of many lifetimes -- because it does -- but it is a Soul-Image that incarnates into this world.   Consider the reality presented in the words that, "...But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!" -- which indicates that these past life images that never did become manifest through the process of soul-birth, continue to exist in their un-manifest form within the higher reality of the soul.    Therefore, we must pose the question as to how the past continues to exist in the present?   If, when you come into the presence of your soul, you can perceive the previous soul-images that came into being before you, then these soul-images continue to exist within the higher reality of the soul.   But what this also indicates is that all the previous soul-images that lived in vast and greatly differing conditions, continue to exit in their original form.   Thus the enigmatic reality of Time as portrayed in the words: “The meaning of time has become terribly problematic in contemporary physics,” says Simon Saunders, a philosopher of physics at the University of Oxford. “The situation is so uncomfortable that by far the best thing to do is declare oneself an agnostic” (see Time May Not Exist).    Going one step further is the profound statement that: “One finds that time just disappears from the Wheeler-DeWitt equation,” says Carlo Rovelli, a physicist at the University of the Mediterranean in Marseille, France. “It is an issue that many theorists have puzzled about. It may be that the best way to think about quantum reality is to give up the notion of time—that the fundamental description of the universe must be timeless.”    Quoting an equally important statement in the above article: The possibility that time may not exist is known among physicists as the “problem of time.” It may be the biggest, but it is far from the only temporal conundrum. Vying for second place is this strange fact: The laws of physics don’t explain why time always points to the future. All the laws—whether Newton’s, Einstein’s, or the quirky quantum rules—would work equally well if time ran backward. As far as we can tell, though, time is a one-way process; it never reverses, even though no laws restrict it.

With respect to the higher reality of the soul within which all the (past life) images that incarnate into this world simultaneously dwell, it is important to recognize the concept set forth in the Discovery article on Time in the words: As Rovelli explains it, in quantum mechanics all particles of matter and energy can also be described as waves. And waves have an unusual property: An infinite number of them can exist in the same location. If time and space are one day shown to consist of quanta, the quanta could all exist piled together in a single dimensionless point. “Space and time in some sense melt in this picture,” says Rovelli. “There is no space anymore. There are just quanta kind of living on top of one another without being immersed in a space.”

While it is true that the soul of man evolves over the course of many lifetimes, it is also paradoxically true that the flawed concept that the soul reincarnates after passing through the proverbial cloud of forgetfulness as proposed by the Eastern religions and the New Age, simply has no factual basis in reality.   And that the belief in reincarnation in the pattern that the New Age promotes, must be seen as entry-level dogmatic milk that is promoted among those who cannot comprehend the true higher reality of the soul.    We can observe this enigma of Eastern teachings in the article entitled The Awakening Of Primal Knowledge by Dr. Ashok K. Gangadean in Parabola, The Magazine of Myth & Tradition, Spring 1997, where Dr. Gangadean writes: "Socrates introduces the remarkable thesis that primal knowledge is inscribed in the soul but is lost, repressed, or forgotten when the soul suffers the trauma of embodied existence. This is a perennial theme in the global evolution of thought: that humans live between two contrasting worlds or dimensions, the eternal and the temporal. The natural world of the soul is the eternal world – the dimension of Being, wherein the psyche realizes its immortal life. The world of the body is existence in space and time, the place of fleeting, ever–changing experience. immortal life is the higher life of primal knowing; mortal life is the physical, biological life of the embodied psyche. In crossing between dimensions, the soul's innate knowledge is forgotten. For Socrates, the primary task of human existence is to remember. To remember is to awaken our higher rational powers, and to retrieve the knowledge hidden within." 

The human mind has great difficulty in comprehending man's paradoxical nature.   Why?   Because in this three-dimensional realm, the organic mind of man insists on seeing himself as singular -- whereas, his mind and being is divided across the spectrum of the threefold self, encompassing seven kingdoms -- and while on one level each segment of mind appears to be singular and independent, each of the segments remain intimately connected.    So, in light of this self-knowledge possessed only by the Truly Enlightened Gnostic of whom it can be said they Know Thyself, we must pose the question: Is the above really what Socrates stated?    It is important to take notice of the words: "...In crossing between dimensions, the soul's innate knowledge is forgotten."    The question is: Who says that the soul which is immortal and has existed since the dawn of time, is that part of self that enters the body?   Thus, we must pose the question: Does the soul enter the body?   Or does an aspect of the soul -- i.e., an embryonic image of the soul -- enter the body?   Further, how can the soul forget?   If we discard the thinking of the fruit of the Tree of Duality which brings (spiritual) death -- and we begin to understand that what man perceives as Time, is merely a dimension of mind -- then those who truly fulfill the axiom to Know Themselves, must understand the words "...that humans live between two contrasting worlds or dimensions, the eternal and the temporal"  -- from an entirely different perspective.    It is not one or the other -- but rather, part of self continues in the "...world or dimensions [that is] the eternal" -- while the other part of us is born into a body that manifests an embryonic image of self into the "...world or dimensions [that is] ...the temporal".   

While we can utilize the scriptures to demonstrate what is being stated, a True Gnostic or Spiritually Enlightened seeker is not at all dependent upon scriptures to prove the Truth -- which Enlightened Realization is the result of his own Spiritual Experiences.    To overcome, and enter the higher reality of the soul, is the objective of the scriptures -- and once this objective is fulfilled, the entering within one's self provides this first hand experiential knowledge that enlightens the True Seeker to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.    That such a soul is able to see important esoteric meaning that others do not -- and are in fact blind to -- provides the Spiritually Transformed Gnostic with an understanding of scripture that the organic mind of man is blind to.   The Gospel of Thomas thus begins with the words: "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death." -- with the understanding that the only way to find the interpretation, is when they are experienced within the reality of one's own life.    The interpretation cannot be taught to men of an organic mind and consciousness, because of the limitations of the untransformed physical body and the three-dimensions of this world.  

   Soul-Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral: With respect to the foregoing, each person's mind and being is as a symphony being played across the spectrum of many octaves (see The Law Of Octaves) -- and what we call organic human consciousness, is merely one of those octaves.   Using this analogy which is more real than most people could begin to imagine, while the symphony of mind and being is the product of a great multitude of octaves, physical man in his natural condition, is blind and deaf to everything that is outside of the organic frequencies of the body-vessel.    Moreover, if the embryonic image of the soul which was generated into the body at conception by the higher soul-self of each person can be portrayed as being representative of a different instrument -- and each instrument only represents an aspect of self -- and the higher soul-self who is the Being Of Light, being holographlly Created in the image and likeness of God, contains within itself the whole spectrum of instruments which can only incarnate one at a time -- then the wholeness of the soul is representative of all the instruments, and all the octaves, being simultaneously played in absolute harmony.  

The Gospel of Thomas states: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world" -- and to Know Thyself, is to bring about that condition of Wholeness where the Great Symphony of the Soul can be played in the Spiritual Cathedral of the transformed Final Temple.   In becoming Whole, you become "...superior to the world", because the organic people of this world can only play their very limited parts on the stage of life by virtue of the Laws that orchestrated the part they are playing.   In contradistinction, the higher soul of man which is the embodiment of all the instruments playing their integral part, with all the octaves being played in harmony -- and it is this higher reality of the soul-self that is the very force that holds up and supports the limited expression of the human organic octave -- and the great symphony of the soul continues regardless of man's very limited awareness.    What this means is that the Symphony of the soul is presently playing, but because man has through his own previous actions, caused himself to be cast into what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- or, what Plato portrayed as the Cave of Illusions -- organic man remains totally unaware of the Symphony of the Soul that is being played within the greater depths of his mind and being.

To further develop the analogy: During the playing of the Soul-Symphony, one player is excused to work on their piece in one of the practice rooms of this world.    At no time can it be said that the one player represents the entire membership of the symphony.   The Soul-Symphony does not cease playing while the one member works on their part in what would appear to be a state of seclusion, and neither can the Soul-Symphony enter into the practice room while the one member is working on their individual part.   Yet, the whole objective of the member retiring to the practice room, is to perfect their piece, and better support the Symphony of the Soul being played by the Whole.   

For a man or woman to think of themselves as the whole of their being, would be synonymous with a flute proclaiming that it is an orchestra that is playing a great symphony.    And while many people's ego might imagine such a thing, they simply have no sense of true higher mind and being.    What psychologists often portray as the unconscious or subconscious, is the Great Symphony of the Soul that is playing, while the person in this world is confined in a practice room working on their individual part.   So, when psychologists make reference to the subconscious, they do this by virtue of their ignorance of the Cosmology of Mind and Being.   In the words of the Gospel of Thomas, they dwell in poverty -- and "...Whoever finds himself [and the Soul-Symphony that is being played within one's self beyond the barriers of organic consciousness] is superior to the world".

A really important reality for the organic mind to grasp would be seen in the fact that, while it is true that the single player who is the flute player cannot be the entire orchestra -- and the orchestra of his soul is not even manifest in this world in that frame of mind that we call time --  it is also true that because Time is a dimension of mind, the image and sound that each person sees reflected in the other players in the orchestra of this world, is in fact a perception of that part of self with respect to the players that make up the higher reality of the soul.   The Mind, or Mansion of the Soul, is like a Matrix where each aspect of self interacts and is interweaved in a complex pattern that is simply beyond organic man's ability to even envision.   And these interconnections within the Matrix, are maintained by the Laws which control the interactions.    And while Jesus would not have been able to explain the Matrix of the Soul/Mind to the multitude of people whose thinking was in no manner prepared to understand, he did convey to them how to cause the Laws to begin to work to bring about favorable results for each person.   And this is the reason why Jesus who understood the Laws, taught the people: "Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets" (Matt 7:12 NKJ).   What you see and perceive in the reflected image of others, is in fact an embodiment of the aspect of one's own soul that is an integral part of one's own orchestra.   And this is why Jesus used the phrase, "...for this is the Law and the Prophets" .   Which is why Jesus warned to: "Judge not, that you be not judged.  For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you" (Matt 7:1-2 NKJ).  

Judgment is very different than discernment -- and discernment is again very different than empathetic discernment.   If, while you are in the practice room, you are able to help another person who plays a different instrument than you do, heal and advance their own piece or part of the musical score, then you are in fact working on the Laws that maintains the inner Matrix of your own Soul/Mind, which in every manner improves your own condition.   Further, by assisting others, in addition to invoking the Law of Grace, because of your rendering assistance to another soul/person, you are in fact healing and working on self by proxy.   And thus, instead of judgment, you employ empathetic discernment to help another to overcome their weaknesses -- and in your actions towards your brother or sister, you not only invoke this same healing upon yourself, but you work on perfecting the Laws within yourself -- i.e., as you do unto others, the same will be done unto you.   

To bring about the necessary expansion of mind, you will not only have to bring about healing to all aspects of self that can only be perceived in the reflection of others, but you will have to play your own part in such a way, that you will open the inner door for the other aspects of self who are the orchestra members of the soul, to come together in harmony and balance -- which will further open the inner doors for all the octaves outside the frequency of the earth, to manifest in the higher reality of the Cathedral of the Soul.   And it is the objective of bringing about the great symphony that must be played in the Cathedral of the Soul -- and the Laws which return to each of us the fruit of our own judgments of the reflected images we perceive in our brothers and sisters.

When the scribes and Pharisees wanted to stone the woman who had been caught in adultery -- i.e., and Jesus said: "...He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first" (John 8:3-11 NKJ) -- what Jesus in fact said was ultra important to understand.    The word rendered sin in this instance, appears no where else in the Gospels -- and it should be interpreted "...He who is without sin [in any lifetime] among you, let him throw a stone at her first."    If the Law stated that an adulterous woman should be stoned, then why didn't Jesus throw the first stone?   As is demonstrated in The Biblical Foundational Mindset, the scribes and Pharisees understood that the Laws which bring about the Conditions of Birth for each person, determines the life that they are living in the present, by virtue of the deeds and accomplishments of their previous lives which their soul has lived -- lives with continue within the higher reality of the soul, by virtue of the fact that what man perceives as time, is merely a dimension of mind (see The Enigma Of Time).    And the scribes and Pharisees understood that it was impossible to be without sin over the course of the countless lifetimes that each person's soul has lived.   Therefore, with respect to the stoning required by the Law, this is an allegorical portrayal of fulfilling the requirements set forth by Paul when he commanded to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).   To the degree that Paul warned: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   Thus, it was one's own earthly nature that needed to be healed, and Jesus' words to the woman is most important where he stated: "...Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more" (John 8:3-11 NKJ).   Jesus neither attempted to ignore the sin of the woman by making some excuse for her sin -- neither did he in any manner encourage her to continue sinning -- and neither did he tell the woman that if she believes in him (Jesus), that her sins would be forgiven.    Thus, contrary to modern Church doctrine Jesus in no manner attempted to convey to the woman that so long as she believes, that she will not be held accountable for her sin.   What he said is that she should "...go and sin no more."    In the same way, Jesus said to the man who he had healed by making him whole:  "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV).   Which means that if he continues to sin, the Laws will bring even graver conditions upon him.

That Jesus healed the sinners and condemned the counterfeit religious and political leaders, was because the sinners were the victims of their leaders who had led them astray.    Moreover, to help and heal the sinner, is to help and heal that part of self which the other person reflects back to you.    To even suggest that Jesus approved of sin, is an abomination -- i.e., in the words of Paul:  "But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor" (Gal 2:17-18 KJV).    Those who knowingly sin after coming to the knowledge of the Truth, are no longer worthy of forgiveness with respect to the Laws -- i.e., in the words of Paul: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt... For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).  

The Truth and the teachings of TheWay is not about compassionate complacency for those who choose to live in a state of perpetual sin -- but rather, the healing and making Whole that overcomes one's lower animal nature -- expanding the mind through growth and development by becoming the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, with the objective of becoming transformed into the Final Temple.    This is in part accomplished by working on one's self through the interactions with the reflected images of self that one sees in one's brothers and sisters, with the objective of bringing about the Wholeness necessary to complete one's work on self in this world, and while still in the body-vessel open the inner "narrow strait gate" and play the Great Symphony in the Cathedral of the Soul.     

Thus, the Gospel of Thomas states: "His disciples said to him, When will the kingdom come? Jesus said, It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying 'here it is' or 'there it is.' Rather, the kingdom of the Father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it".    It is only man's own limitations that make him blind, and inhibit him from seeing the reality of all things.   This inherent blindness is presented in the words: "...And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: 'Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive;  For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed" (Matt 13:10-17 NKJ).   That man is deaf and blind to what lies outside of the frequencies of the earth-octave, is the result of his own organic limitations that he fails to move beyond and overcome. 

Instead of labeling the spheres of the pattern of the Tree of Life with the aspects of mind that each sphere represents, lets replace the names with types of instruments needed to play the great symphony of the soul.   We have a woodwind section, a string section, the brass section, the percussion section -- as well as a few heavenly sections for the pipe organ, the celestial harps, as well as sections for angelic voices, and sections that support a whole assortment of unique instruments that enable our Soul-Symphony to play all the intricate sounds of Creation.   Within each of the sections there are an assortment of instruments which not only make up the section -- but also are necessary to support the Whole.   The string section not only has a violin, but groupings of violins which support movements within the violin section.   Along with violas, cellos, base fiddles, guitars, banjos, steel guitars, dobros, and every other variety of stringed instrument -- and each one of these entities within a section, within a grouping sphere, must themselves be individually evolved and perfected.   The cello player does not switch from life to life as a violin, viola or even guitar player -- no more than the heart changes place with the lungs, which changes place with the spleen -- simply because all the instruments of the great orchestra must not only play their part, but must support the section as well as the Whole.   And different aspects of the soul incarnates into this world at different times, in order to perfect their part -- with the objective of perfecting the Great Angelic Symphony of the Soul.   

In applying what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge to the scriptures, the Spiritual (Gnostic) Seeker understands that the scriptures are a blueprint of one's own mind and being.   In the parable of the Two Sons, the Elder Son remains in the Kingdom of the Father which is the Eternal World, while the Younger Son travels into the temporal world which is portrayed as the Far Country.    The Knowledge of the Elder Son is not suppressed, and neither is it forgotten.   Contrary to the psychological model, that which is represented in the Elder Son and the Father is not a subconscious state -- but rather, it is the prodigal son who is portrayed as being dead, who is unaware of what is going on in the (inner) Kingdom that he has left, in order to venture into this, the Far Country which Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being.   Both worlds which exist as dimensions of mind and being, continue to exist simultaneously.    And in the parallel analogy of the escape from Plato's Cave which is representative of the "outer darkness" of the Far Country, what is represented is the ability of man who is the soul-image which came into being at conception, to travel through the inner "narrow gate" into the higher reality of the soul.  

Again, in applying the Key of Knowledge to the scriptures, the parable of the Sower and the Seed must be understood on a number of levels -- i.e., while the Sower on the Highest level would be seen as the Logos -- when the holographic reality and the Divine Pattern of Creation is understood, the higher soul-self becomes the sower of the soul-images that become embedded in the body-vessel at conception.   And this understanding is important, because the condition of the ground within which the seed-essence is cast, is comprised of the lower three kingdoms of the earth -- i.e., the consciousness of which is the carnal appetites and aspects of self that must be sacrificed and transformed to become the Final Temple.   And again, we can observe the same error in Eastern Thought with respect to the Hindu concept of the soul incarnating in the body of a beast.    Again we see a parallel error which is presented in the above -- i.e., it is not that the soul incarnates into the body of a beast -- but rather, the seed-essence image becomes ruled over by the lower animal nature of the body -- which being drawn from the elements of the earth, not only has the consciousness of the earth, but is itself temporal.   

A reality that Christians would rather not talk about is the statement by one of the earliest of Christian writers named Justin Martyr where is makes reference to the doctrine of transmutation -- i.e.,  the embodiment of a person in the body of a beast as punishment for the misdeeds of a previous life -- when he (Justin) answers the question of Trypho, the Jew, and writes: "And what do those suffer who are judged to be unworthy of this spectacle? said he. They are imprisoned in the bodies of certain wild beasts, and this is their punishment" (Dialogue of Justin With Trypho, a Jew).     Where could such a thought have originated?  If the Gospels had not been corrupted, Christians would have access to the teaching which has been preserved in the 88th chapter of The Gospel Of The Nazirenes where Jesus states: "Love you one another and all the creatures of God, Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man. Are they men or women in the image of God whose ways of violence, of oppression and wrong, who choose a lie rather than the truth? No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Israel, and being of Israel they are children of God, And for this cause came I into the world, and for this I have suffered at the hands of sinners."   

What this means is that unless the person achieves the next level of soul-birth (see Cosmic Ovum And Sperm), that they remain ruled over by their lower animal nature which is embodied in the consciousness of the body-vessel.    And in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, the condition of the ground is representative of the consciousness and condition of the body, with respect to the objective of sacrificing the lower animal kingdoms in order to bring about the  Final Temple within the body and mind of the seeker.    Therefore, it is not that the soul incarnates as a beast -- but rather, that the soul-seed essence remains ruled over by the consciousness of the beast as realized as the reality of the body-vessel which is comprised of the consciousness and elements of the lower three kingdoms.    And it is ignorance of this fact that caused the early Christian (Gnostic) Valentinus to confirm what Jesus stated with respect to what is portrayed as only the very few who succeed -- i.e., "...narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV) -- Valentinus stating that the vast majority of people have no real continuance beyond the grave, that most seekers will fail, and only a few will overcome and succeed.    That Jesus is portrayed as the Savor, is because he fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the pattern for all others to embrace and follow in TheWay.  

Thus, Jesus taught that those who seek to enter into Life, must "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ) -- and it is imperative to understand that the word translated "destruction", in no manner represents what is actually being presented by the interpreters of the Greek biblical texts.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.     That the higher soul-self generates embryonic images at the conception of the body -- and these soul-images then begin the process of evolving through the levels and stages of birth that Jesus portrayed in the words: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- means that those soul-images that, after emerging out of the physical womb of their mother, and into the environment of this world, have begun the next phase necessary in order to bring about the next stage of birth.   That you are a thought-image which has been generated by your higher soul-self -- i.e., you exist as a projected embryonic seed-image which has been impressed into the physical body at conception  -- is the reason why Paul and the earliest of biblical texts warn that carnal man is not even "known by God" (see Soul-Image).    You exist as a Creation of God only by proxy, and by virtue of the fact that you are a thought projected by your soul -- and it was your soul that was Created by God in the beginning.   And thus, the reality of the words to Know Thyself -- and a house that is divided, cannot stand.

That for countless reasons these soul-images which enter this world in the bodies of man and woman, mostly fail to bring about the objective of achieving the next stage of birth that Jesus said was absolutely necessary to achieve permanence in Life, is very much true that they have become "...ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.    As soul-images that failed to evolve through the next stage of birth, they are for the most part temporal, and can never reincarnate as many in the New Age believe, and neither can they go to Glory as the Church promotes.   The fact that some people claim to see their past lives, have been deceived when they mistakenly believe that they lived those lives, and the memory has been suppressed.    What they are in effect seeing, is the images which their higher soul-self has previously generated -- failed images which is the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 are portrayed in the words that "...when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"   And these failed images which walked (what Jesus portrayed as) the broad-way of self destruction -- i.e., "...ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose” -- neither reincarnate, nor go to Glory in the Christian sense of the understanding -- and yet, they remain within the higher reality of the soul in that dimension of mind which man, in his very limited understanding, calls time.

When Jesus taught that you must achieve the next stage of birth to enter into the Life in the Kingdom, this next stage of birth must be accomplished while you are still in the physical body.    That you, as the projected soul-image, has been inhibited from growing and developing, because of the conditions of the earth in the parable of the  Sower and the Seed, is very much presented in the words: "...Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man. Are they men or women in the image of God whose ways of violence, of oppression and wrong, who choose a lie rather than the truth? No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts."    Thus, the soul-images that are ruled over by the appetites and passions of the lower nature of the body, are temporal with respect to the higher reality of the soul, and can neither reincarnate or go to Glory -- i.e., “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).  

The whole system of animal sacrifice in the Old Testament is allegory -- and it is the lower animal nature within each person that must be sacrificed.   And this is why the early Church Father Epiphanius wrote concerning the Ebionites that they do not engage in the outward ritual observances of the Law of Moses -- i.e., they "...do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blespheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   Yes, it is the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) that reveals to the enlightened soul the inner meaning of the written word of the scriptures that organic man remains blind to.   Epiphanius then quotes the Gospel of the Ebionites/Hebrews where Jesus states: "I have come to destroy the sacrifices" (Panaron 30.16.5).   And when AskMoses.com states that we must sacrifice our inner animals i.e., "We cannot atone for our shortcomings by sacrificing animals, but we can sacrifice our inner animals—our hormones, our lusts, our desires, our beastly compulsions" -- is this any different than the teachings of Jesus in the Gospel of the Nazirenes: "For they, making a god of their belly, sacrificed to their God the innocent creatures of the earth, in place of the carnal nature within themselves. And eating of their flesh and drinking of their blood to their own destruction, corrupted their bodies and shortened their days, even as the Gentiles who did not know the truth, or who knowing it, have changed it into a lie."   And this is why Paul warned that the person must "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).   With the requirement that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   And this is why those who desire to return to the Inner Kingdom, understand the absolute need to observe the original diet intended for man in the words: "And God said, See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food; and it was so. Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day" (Gen 1:29-31 NKJ).  

In the terminology of the modern self-help psychology of the New Age, the ego-self equates to the earth-consciousness of the body, which G.I.Gurdjief portrays as the false-personalities of the person.   While the New Age self-help pop psychology is unclear, Gurdjief portrays the soul-seed embryonic image as the essence-self that, like the seed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, must be matured and evolved.    And thus, it is of the utmost importance to recognize Jesus'  warning with respect to organic man's inability to understand anything of any real value, unless this soul-image essence-self is matured and evolved, as per the statement that nearly every student of the Gospels attempts to ignore -- i.e.,  “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV) -- or, in the wording of a the modern language New Living Translation: “But if you can’t understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”  What this confirms is that, unless you bring about the conscious development of the embryonic image that was impressed in the body at conception -- and cease to be ruled over by the earth-consciousness of the body-vessel -- expanding your essence-self as seen in the words:  “…multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times” what was initially received (Mark 4:8 NIV) -- then you are functioning from a ego-false personality perspective, and you will remain (spiritually) dead (see The Dead Know Nothing).    

Failure to bring about the higher objectives of life, and succeed in attaining the next level of soul-birth where you become One with your higher soul-self who is the Being of Light -- is because man has no understanding of his own cosmology of mind and being -- and like the prodigal son, squanders away his spiritual inheritance.    But, in order for the prodigal son to evolve to perfection and completion, he must possess freewill -- even when the exercise of this freewill brings about his failure to overcome.    Yet, in the fruit of each failure, is the wisdom that in time, brings about the success of each soul in the Omega of Absolute Light and Enlightenment.    And this is possible only because each image remains as a building block in the higher reality of the Mansion of the Soul -- and time is really a dimension of mind which in the words of the physicist, is  "...just quanta kind of living on top of one another without being immersed in a space” (In physics, a quantum (plural: quanta) is the minimum unit of any physical entity involved in an interaction).   The implications of what is being presented is that each person exists as a (single) thought in the Mind of the Soul -- and, as a thought-image (of your higher soul-self) which has been projected into this world, you are presently in this world attempting to evolve this projected thought to a state of Wholeness and Completion.   

The soul is neither male nor female -- it does not have a physical body as man does -- and it exists in a realm where all opposite polarities of the Tree of Duality are maintained in absolute balance -- and the soul, or higher soul-self, is the Being of Light that some people encounter in a Near Death Experience.    The higher soul-self does not incarnate into the body -- and exists across that dimension of mind from the Alpha to the Omega which we call time -- and all the images generated into this world which live the lifetimes gaining experiential knowledge, continue to exist within the higher reality of the soul.   Thus, it can be said that, "...But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest" -- that these images which represent the past personalities the soul has lived as, is “...just quanta kind of living on top of one another without being immersed in a space.” 

Those who walk the spiritual path of the teachings of TheWay that was revealed to mankind by the historical man Jesus, not only are able to come into the presence of the higher soul-self -- but because time is a dimension of mind within which the soul's past incarnations as previously generated images still exist, the disciple of TheWay is able to freely communicate with these past images -- learning from the experiential knowledge of these lifetimes their higher soul-self has lived -- and even discussing with them the higher realities that remains an unknown enigma to mankind today.   "The soul...", writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila) -- and each image which the soul has generated into a life in this realm, continues to exist within the higher reality of the soul, very much as a room within the mansion of the castle.   And what man calls time, is merely the layout of the rooms within the construct of the castle of the soul -- which not only continue to exist within the mind of the soul, and by proxy, within the Mind of God -- and it is the totality of the evolution of the soul that represents the manifestation of the Light of the soul in it's natural state as a Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ).    And in coming to envision this higher soul-reality as portrayed by the Mystic St. Teresa as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” -- these rooms inhabited by each previously generated soul-image that failed to bring about the next stage of birth, exist in a kind of Matrix that is divided across that dimension of mind that man unknowingly calls Time -- and in the above words of physicist Carlo Rovelli as “...just quanta kind of living on top of one another without being immersed in a space.”    Paradoxically, they are both separate, and they exist as One.   And it is this higher soul-reality that motivated Paul to warn that the Christians of the simple-faith would reject the knowledge and higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness" (see Mystery).

The Great House or Castle of the soul that encompasses all that we have ever been from the Alpha to the present point of the soul's journey, to the ultimate Destiny of the Omega of Creation, cannot be reduced into the lesser limits of organic human consciousness -- being contained within the three lower kingdoms of the earth.    Therefore, while our true self exists exclusively in the higher reality of the soul that does not incarnate into the body at conception, modern Christians are unable to fulfill the words of John 5:24, and receive the Living Words that permit the disciple to "...cross over from death to life”, because they dwell in the poverty of their carnal mindset and manmade doctrines which inhibit their ability to Know Thyself.   Thus, the Gospel of Thomas warns that "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".    Why?   As it states in the Book of Jewish Mysticism known as the Zohar: "...According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.   If it is true, that our soul has no sex -- and our gender varies from life to life in accord with the body-vessel we are inhabiting in any given life -- then what are we?   Certainly not the physical reflection that we see in the mirror.   And one of the primary realities that Paul made reference to that could not be revealed to the people of a natural organic mindset (see Mystery), was the reality that their true self is a Being of Light that is pure energy and intellect -- and this Being of Light is our soul-self that was created and came into existence in the beginning -- in the Alpha of Creation itself.    Therefore, our soul-self is the Offspring of God -- and is that part of ourselves that is eternal -- and is the true being that we are.    We, as a man or woman born into the present timeframe of human existence, began our journey as an embryonic image of our higher soul-self -- a being of the fourth kingdom which is the balance between the three earthly kingdoms which comprise of our lower animal carnal natures -- and the three heavenly kingdoms which comprise our higher heavenly natures -- with the objective being, to become the Final Temple that manifests Heaven on Earth within us.  

While in this world you are dwelling in duality -- dwelling in either a male, or a female body -- while your higher soul-self that is the true being that you are, does not dwell in duality.   Thus, to even begin to get to the reality of your true self who is a stranger and enigma to the person you are in this world -- i.e., your soul which is your true self -- you must overcome the duality in which you presently dwell.   And while those of a monastic mindset may feel spiritually intoxicated by tapping into the energy flow of the sixth center in the head -- this feeling of endorphin driven intoxication cannot replace the objective of evolving through the next stages of birth that Jesus taught was necessary for the prodigal son to return to the Life in the Kingdom.    Moreover, because of the condition of imbalance, what the monk imagines to be God, is merely the Light that is from their own higher soul-self, that they know little about.

Again, the necessity of reuniting the opposites in order to bring heaven and earth together within one's self, was expressed in the teaching of Jesus that was removed from the Gospels and still preserved in the Second Epistle of Clement: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”   And while being neither male nor female is the elevated balance of the two polarities that we observe in the form of gender, this elevated balance cannot be achieved through the negation of the lower centers -- but rather, the joining together in the manner of an ovum and sperm.    For good reason, the scriptures place great emphasis on marriage, and the fidelity of the man and woman within the marriage.   To the degree that fidelity is the Seventh Commandment, and Jesus warned that a man who even looks upon a woman with lust, has already violated this Commandment, and is an adulterer.  

The Hebrews who spoke in the esoteric meaning of numbers, for good reason made this the Seventh Commandment.    And in the same way that when Enoch who was the seventh from Adam, is portrayed as having a son -- wherein, after having a son, Enoch is portrayed as walking with God -- in the allegory of the path into Life it is portrayed in the fact that Enoch is said to have never died, because God took him.    It is impossible to understand what is being portrayed, without first understanding why having a son caused Enoch to walk with God -- and comprehending the spiritual meaning of the number seven, and what it means to overcome the Laws and organic duality of being.  

Why is such emphasis placed upon fidelity within a marriage?     Why was Enoch who was the seventh from Adam, portrayed as walking with God after having a son?   Enoch, which means the initiated, was the seventh from Adam -- and an important part of the equation is the Seventh Commandment -- all manifested in the allegorical symbolism that to overcome in this manner, is to dwell on a higher plane, and overcome what is portrayed as death.   And if one comes to understand the true spiritual potential of marriage, what is portrayed allegorically in the above, has the potential to become a true reality beyond organic man's ability to even envision. 

The traditional male/female physical union is not enough to evolve the Divine Marriage.     We are not making reference to a consensus opinion between male and female.   There must be a threefold evolution where the feminine is matured to fullness -- the masculine is matured to fullness -- and together, the third-force of mind is evolved, in the same way that a physical child is evolved through the stages into adulthood. @@@HERE NOW

  Transcending Time:   If what we call time exists in a matrix within the higher reality of the soul-self, then this higher reality exists as the most enlightening source of knowledge known to man.    Thus, the ancient adage that is reflected in the Gospel of Thomas that few would-be teachers in this world can even begin to come to terms with: "But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".    Which is why Jesus rejected his disciples calling themselves rabbi or teacher -- commanding: “But you, do not be called 'Rabbi'; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren” (Matt 23:8 NKJ).    Throughout many of my writings I portray the intellectuals that are the secular priests of our culture, as pseudo-intellectuals.   And the religious leaders as pseudo-religious leaders or priests of the shadow church of this world.   Why?   For the same reason why Jesus said to Nicomedus: "...Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?"   If a person who calls themselves a teacher or religious leader, does not understand the means to bring about the next stage of birth, then they are a pseudo-intellectual, a pseudo-teacher or a pseudo-clergy -- and they exist as a detriment to their brothers and sisters who they attempt to teach or lead.    If the objective is to be a doctor-healer -- but one only knows about dispensing an aspirin -- then such a person would not only be a fraud, but would be a danger to those who come to you for medical help.    The same is true of pseudo-intellectuals who are ignorant with respect to man's higher soul-reality -- a pseudo-teacher who does not know how to bring about the next stage of soul-birth -- or a pseudo-clergy who does not know the esoteric mysteries that Paul stated reveals the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.

Why are they pseudo-teachers?    In the Gospel of Thomas it is written: (113) "His disciples said to him, When will the kingdom come?  Jesus said, It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying 'here it is' or 'there it is.' Rather, the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it."     In reality, there is absolutely nothing hidden or concealed -- and all things including the Kingdom, lie visibly before every man.    And man does not see it, because of his own inherent organic blindness -- which is why Jesus taught to first remove the beam from one's own eye, before you attempt to remove the splinter from the eyes of your brother.  

Who is the One Teacher that Jesus recognized as the only valid Source of Knowledge?   To the degree that the Apostle Peter stated in the Homilies of Clement: "...Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other."   Among the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus, the One Teacher was portrayed as the TheTrue Prophet  -- and only those who become the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, can be taught by the True Prophet -- and why Peter taught in the Homilies that the One Teacher who is the True Prophet, can only be found within each person who becomes the Final Temple.

Within the experiences of each person's higher soul-self, lies a living record of everything that soul has ever been.   From the perspective of what is portrayed in Gospel of Thomas saying 84, it is because all the unmanifest soul-images of the past continue to dwell within the higher reality of the soul -- and the fact that the Great House of the soul is as a matrix wherein, these soul-images remain overlaid across dimensions of mind and being -- that the words of physicist Carlo Rovelli as “...just quanta kind of living on top of one another without being immersed in a space” portrays an almost incomprehensible reality that few people can even begin to envision in their untransformed organic state of earth-bound consciousness.    Yet those who succeed in drawing nearer to their higher soul-self who is their true source of being, are able to tap into and explore this inner source of wisdom and knowledge that not only transcends time, but far eclipses any knowledge that exists in the earth.    When the Gospel of Thomas states: "...Whoever finds himself is superior to the world" -- this is because, from a higher soul-self level of being, all realities, kingdoms, dimensions and realms are seen for what they truly are.

One of the great realities that is presented in the article the Divine Marriage, is the fact that because the soul is as (quoting the above), a Matrix that is divided across that dimension of mind that man unknowingly calls Time -- and in the above words of physicist Carlo Rovelli as “...just quanta kind of living on top of one another without being immersed in a space.” -- man and woman as husband and wife within a Divine Marriage not only have the potential to embody the Divine Pattern of Creation within their Union -- but their expansion of mind through the generation of opposite impressions within a "one flesh" union of being that has evolved beyond that which is portrayed as a Cosmic Ovum And Sperm, enables them to manifest all the strengths of their long past -- spanning many lifetimes together in the present, and continue where they left off.   And while to a lesser degree this is true of all people by virtue of The Laws which return to each person the fruit of their past actions, because the very design of man and woman as the sexes embody the Laws and Forces of Creation within themselves and their union of opposites, their efforts are truly supercharged in relation to the very slow progress of a man or woman who would be the equivalent of  a Cosmic Ovum And Sperm.    This is not to say that a man or woman in the singular sense cannot make progress -- but rather, the environment of the Marriage of Opposites was ordained by the Laws to supercharge the efforts of the prodigal sons and daughters, because the Laws of the Divine Pattern are manifest within the spiritual substance of the Union. 

In the article the Divine Marriage it is explained that in their evolving fetus stages of development, the feminine polarity accesses opposite dimensions of mind and higher realities within the soul, than does the male.   In fact, within the union, the impressions of the husband/male activates the opposite impressions within the mind and being of the wife/female -- and vice versa -- and in the same way that the embryo/fetus is the third-force synthesis of the two opposites, the higher areas of mind that is expanded within the environment of the Etheric, becomes as an independent atmosphere that connects every aspect of the two.   Thus, if we drew a circle around the Etheric Fields of the union of opposites of man and woman at the right, we would begin to understand how what is portrayed as the Tree of Duality (a.k.a. Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil) is transformed into the Tree of Life -- the fruit of which in its evolved Wholeness, brings about Eternal Life.     In the same way that all of life is in accord with the Divine Pattern -- and that in the Union of Opposites, the third-force synthesis is conceived and evolved into a child that is the genetic offspring of the two -- these same Laws are able to conceive and evolve the minds of both the husband and wife -- as well as a the higher third-force of mind that exists on a higher plane than what is associated as earth-consciousness.    And it is because the soul of man is as a Matrix which transcends that dimension of mind which we call time, as well as all realities within itself, that those who understand and embrace the Laws of Creation as God intended, will find their efforts supercharged and soaring into higher realities that few organic men and women can even begin to envision.   Moreover, not only does the Union enable them to draw upon the very power and experiences of their past together -- but in transcending that dimension of mind which we call time within themselves, they can at times communicate with the previous images within the House of the Soul -- and in opening this door of higher reality, understand what is being portrayed in Gospel of Thomas saying 84 in ways that cannot even be envisioned by the organic people of this world. 

The same Laws that control the patterns within man's physical reality, can be initiated within the pattern of each stage of birth that must be evolved in order to bring about Wholeness and man's Ultimate Destiny.   The major obstacles to bringing these stages of birth about, is seen in the fact that, as the offspring of God, man has freewill -- and when man ignores the pattern of the Laws and immerses himself in the appetites of his lower animal nature -- failing to evolve these appetites to their highest ideal in support of man's indwelling spiritual nature -- then man remains earth-bound in a state of both mind and being which Jesus portrayed as being dead: "Then another of His disciples said to Him, Lord, let me first go and bury my father.  But Jesus said to him, Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead" (Matt 8:21-22 NKJ).

http://SoulSelf.org#TheEvolvingSoul

  The Evolving Soul: In our True Form -- i.e., the True Being that we are -- we are a Being of Light ( BeingOfLight.com ).    Building upon what I wrote a number of years ago in answer to questions set forth by forum members (see 600 Series), in the Alpha of Creation all Souls came into being and were as sparks of the Divine.   Quoting from above, Always To Wander In Error:

While Creator-God brought forth all souls in the beginning -- and these souls were themselves sparks of the Divine -- i.e., quoting from The Allegorical Fall Of Man: In the beginning all souls existed as sparks of the Divine. In what I portray as the realm of souls, each individual soul would be perceived as a weak flickering light -- like a distant star. Quoting The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief. According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.  Thus, the pre-existent soul of man which is portrayed as "..sparks of which form the individual souls..." are in fact the Beings of Light -- encountered by some people in a Near Death Experience -- and it is this Being of Light that is each person's true form and self.   Moreover, in our natural state we are a Being of Light -- and our body-vessel which we inhabit in this world, is merely an allegorical projection of mind and spirit into the image of the body.   That the journey of the soul over the course of many lifetimes was an integral part of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and was removed by the Roman Emperors who ruled over the doctrines of the Church (see The Religion Of Roman Emperors) -- is further demonstrated conclusively in The Ten Reasons Why The Church Rejects The Teaching On The Pre-Existent Soul.

In the Zohar it is written that: “All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration; and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them… The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged.  But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”  In order to begin to understand Soul-Evolution, we must focus on the above words:   "...The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged.  But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; ...until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.    Which is expressed in the Sermon on the Mount in the words of Jesus when he stated: "You, therefore, must be Perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" (Matt 5:48).   But what constitutes perfection?   And how is this condition brought about in the Journey of the Soul?

The soul of every person began their existence in the Alpha of Creation as "sparks" of the Divine Mind of Creator-God.   But to even begin to contemplate the Higher Reality of Creator-God and our relationship thereof, we must understand the statement in one of the most ignored Gospel statements in the New Testament where mankind is portrayed as not only as the offspring of God, but as dwelling within the Mind of God -- i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28 NIV).    Put this together with the statement by  James Jeans (see Science, Religion, And The Field/Mind) that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”.    Or the words of Arthur Eddington:  “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff” And you have portrayed a higher reality that few people are even prepared to contemplate -- much less, understand with a sufficient degree to even form a realistic opinion.    Further, if you attempted to convey this reality to the common man of the first century, they would very much reject what you are saying as "foolishness" -- much like most of mankind today.   

Those who are able to enter what I call as the Realm of Souls -- a Higher Reality that must be entered by going within self -- upon entering this Sacred Realm where everyone exists in their Pure State as a Being of Light, one is immediately struck by the fact that most Souls appear as a weak flicking light -- like a distant star.   The more advanced the Soul, the bigger and bright the light.   In the case of the few who can be categorized as Spiritually Advanced -- such as the Soul who lived as the historical man Jesus -- is a Soul of great Intellectual and Knowing Light, Depth and Expanse.   And where all Souls including the Soul of Jesus all began in the Alpha as sparks of the Divine Mind, the Laws have been put into place (see The Laws As A Living Bio-Feedback Organism) whereby Every Soul will in the Omega of Creation evolve to a Great Being of Light.   Which provokes the questions: What Process causes the Light of the Soul to evolve and grow from a mere spark, into a Great Light?   And if it can be stated that as presented in the Gospel of Thomas that: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" -- how much more in the case of those who fail to understand the process that evolves the Light of the Soul?  

When the first century elder Ignatius wrote to the Christian congregation of believers that “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes.  Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them” -- he said this because if he was to begin to even convey the truth and reality of man's higher soul and spiritual nature and the Kingdom, these Christians would very quickly dismiss him as a crazy lunatic, and would no longer listen to a thing that he says.   Therefore, Ignatius, as with all the biblical authors (see Mystery), understood that the mind of the believer must be matured -- the dormant spheres of mind that do not correspond to this physical world must become activated and developed -- in order for the believer to begin to perceive and grasp his own higher soul and spiritual reality.   And this expansion of organic human conscious beyond normal physical limits is what is portrayed in the process: "Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little" (Isa 28:9-10 NKJ).    In the same way that an infant grows into a child and adult one step at a time, so too does the process of mental-expansion take place line upon line.  

Perhaps the key to bridging the visionary perception of the Gnostic Mystic who authored the scriptures (see An Inconvenient Truth), with that of modern cyberneticist David Foster who described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source, is in beginning to understand why we see allegorical images.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”   And only then can we begin to grasp why Jesus stated that organic man dwells in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness ), and why Plato portrayed man as dwelling in a type of Cave of Illusion (see Illusions ) -- illusions that are shadow-images of an unseen reality.   And the answer is provided in the above words that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space."    Explaining that our "...brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”  

What this means is that we dwell within the Great Mind of Creator-God as "sparks" of the Divine -- each of our Souls are as a single neuron in the Mind of God -- and based upon the frequencies of thought that we perceive and interact with our physical senses, our brains interpret these frequencies in the allegorical forms that we perceive as being concrete matter.   Each aspect of thought is represented by a (universal) symbol that our brains interpret in the form that we observe when we look out at the world.   But if we pose the question: Is what we see concrete matter?   And why are these forms in the outer world said to be an illusion (see The Outer Darkness)?   What we are in fact seeing is animated thought-generated symbols -- i.e., thoughts that our brains (organic consciousness) interpret in the context of an allegorical symbol that we perceive as the shapes and forms that our physical consciousness interprets in the appearance and meaning that we see it as.   Thus, the words of Karl Pribram in the February 1979 Psychology Today interview where it is stated that: “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality.  It’s that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different reality, one that can explain things that have hitherto remained scientifically inexplicable: paranormal phenomena… synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events”.   In the words that “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong..." -- what is being conveyed is that what you see -- or think you see -- in the outer world of appearances, is thought portrayed in an allegorical form that permits the people stuck in the limitations of this realm, to interact with a higher reality (of mind) that is beyond their conception -- and even beyond their wildest imaginations.  

Why is this interaction necessary?  In the beginning -- i.e., the Alpha of Creation -- no experiential knowledge existed -- and thus, this period in our Soul's existence can very much be portrayed as the Alpha of Absolute Ignorance.    And where in Jewish Mysticism the Soul is portrayed as "sparks" of the Divine -- and these sparks are in fact White Light -- it is important to recognize that what we see as White Light is actually comprised by what we call the seven colors of the rainbow -- and it is these seven primary colors that make up and manifest White Light.  Which in sound correspond to the seven notes that comprise the Octave.  Why is this important?  Because of the holographic nature of Creation where the pattern of the Macrocosm is replicated into each of the parts of the microcosm that make it up -- i.e., expressed in Genesis as: "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" (Gen 1:27 KJV).  

Holographically, what this means is that the Pattern of the Whole is replicated into each of the lesser parts -- often expressed in the term The Divine Pattern of Creation.  With the Control of these major and lesser realities portrayed as The Law -- the Natural Laws of Creation -- expressed in the Deist term The Laws of Nature and Nature's God (see ThomasPaineRedux.com).   But what this means is that all of Creation is controlled by Natural Law -- Natural Law controls all events and realities of Creation -- and everything is a direct expression of these Natural Laws.   Including the development and evolution of the Soul as encountered and expressed in the Laws of this realm which can be portrayed as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that develops the Soul by returning back that person's words, thoughts, desires and deeds (see Living Bio-Feedback Organism). 

Holographically, what this also means is that the pattern of the whole is replicated into each of the seven colors that comprise White Light -- or the notes of the Octave Scale.   And because in the Alpha of Creation there was no Experiential Knowledge -- and all that existed, existed in an undeveloped and unknowing state -- on one level the seven that made up the whole became separated and disconnected from each other.   And when rightly understood, this separation within itself is allegorically portrayed as the Fall of Man (see The Allegorical Fall Of Man).    Paradoxically and holographically, on one level, each of the seven became whole within themselves, and therefore functioned independently of the other six -- while paradoxically, on another level, they remained connected.   And it is this inability of organic man to comprehend paradoxical truths within the reality of a hologram that totally inhibits his ability to comprehend not only his own higher Soul-Realty, but anything beyond the very limited perception of what he sees with his physical eyes.   And this inability to perceive and comprehend in Wholeness, is personified in the Gospel of Thomas saying: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you."     

Mankind is portrayed as the prodigal son who has become lost in this, the Far Country ( see Parable Of The Prodigal Son).   And man's inability to perceive and understand with wholeness, is portrayed in the Gospels as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   But what is the Outer Darkness?   When rightly understood, what Jesus portrays as the "outer darkness" parallels the analogy of Plato's Cave of Shadow-Images and Illusions (see Plato's Cave).   And if we pose the questions as to what causes mankind to perceive what can be portrayed as allegorical shadow-images?   It is a reality that Mystics have long known -- which modern physicists have only now proven to be true -- as demonstrated in the statement of physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about the true nature of matter that modern physics “...has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context.   It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the underlying entity, the field.   The presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’.   Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field.”  Einstein experienced shock when he first came into contact with the new reality of atomic physics, and wrote in his autobiography: “All my attempts to adapt the theoretical foundation of physics to this [new type of] knowledge failed completely. It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be seen anywhere, upon which one could have built”.  In much the same fashion, the European physicist Niels Bohr stated that “…The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.”  The vast difference between what would be called the common knowledge of man, and the higher spiritual reality attested to by the mystic and visionary of man's distant past, has begun to be demonstrated by the modern scientific community.   What the physicist portrays as a "blemish" where the intersecting forces of the field manifest what we call matter -- which images the analogy of Plato's Cave portrays as shadow-image of a higher unseen reality that man's organic senses are unable to perceive -- is the result of the fact that this world is a three-dimensional realm (allegorically) expressing a higher twelve-dimensional non-physical reality (see The Truth).   

If God is LIGHT -- and our souls which were Created in the Image and Likeness of God are Light-Beings who are individual sparks of the Divine Mind -- and Light is comprised of the Seven Primary Colors of the Rainbow as expressed when white light is projected through a prism -- and the seven colors of the rainbow also correspond to the seven notes of an Octave (see Law Of Octaves) -- and while on one paradoxical level the Light exists because the seven segments that make it up remain in balanced harmony -- while on another paradoxical level, they remain divided and independent of each of the other segments -- then what we have is one of the Primary Blueprints of both the Whole, the Individual Souls, as well as ourselves as mankind.   But to begin to understand this higher reality we must come to comprehend that when the allegorical account in Genesis states that "God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them".   And what is called the Divine Pattern of Creation which is Mother/Father God and the Third-Force Balance which is portrayed as the Logos of Son of God, is replicated into every aspect of Creation.   As Sparks of the Divine Mind, our Souls retain their reality as Beings of Light, because as Adam was initially portrayed as Adam/Eve prior to the separation of male and female, so too is our Soul the balance of male and female -- i.e., as stated in the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia which quotes the Zohar: .. "...The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.   And our Soul or True-Self remains a Being of Light, because at that level of Creation the division of male and female does not exist, and the seven primary colors and notes remain as ONE.   But in the same way that the Light of Creator-God is comprised of the Seven Primary Colors, so too is each Spark of the Divine Mind that forms our individual Souls.  

Why were the Individual Souls Created and came into being?   In the Alpha of Creation, ignorance prevailed because experiential knowledge did not exist.   And without knowledge based upon actual experience, True Knowledge and Knowing cannot exist.   So, the Individual Souls came into existence so that Creation could emerge out of the Alpha of Ignorance and Unknowing, and begin to possess actual Knowledge based upon Experience.   And as the Individual Soul began to interact, Experiential Knowledge came into existence -- and from the perspective of the Divine Mind that was Expressing Self through the experiences of the Individual Soul, actual Knowledge came into Existence.   And through this body of Experiential Knowledge, Creation itself began to move toward the Omega of Enlightened Light and Knowing.  

As a point of reference, I often portray each Soul as a single Neuron in the Mind of God (Logos).   And in the same way that holographically, our own mind is comprised of a great number of neurons or points of influence and control over our thinking, actions and body functions, so too is the Logos of Divine Mind of God.   Both man and an amoeba can be portrayed as being individualized and one -- and the differences are so vast, that the two cannot even be compared with each other.  Higher Perception, Knowledge and Comprehension requires a complexity of Understanding.   While both man and an amoeba can be portrayed as ONE, because of the complexity of mind and body that makes up man, no comparison can be made with respect to intelligence, intellect and reasoning.   In the same way that the organs and systems of man's body are segmented in order to create a harmonic segregated environment for the mind to function at a higher level -- with the amoeba being the opposite of man -- it is important to understand that the very complex human body and mind were all drawn from the One Primary Cell -- and that within the One exists the genetic structure that manifested the complex organism known as man.   Thus, in the same way that the very complex mind of man is comprised of the great number of neurons that make up the networked perceptive-intellect that perceives from many perspectives, holographically the mind of man is an image of the Soul-Mind -- which as a single Neuron in the Mind of God, is an Image of the Mind or Logos of Creator-God.   And what is holographically true of the Divine Pattern of the Mind of God, is also replicated into each Soul, as the pattern is also replicated into the mind of man.   Which of course provokes the question: Where, then, is the individual neurons that comprise the Soul-Mind?  

When Jesus portrayed this realm as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), the reason man can't perceive and understand the higher complex reality of both Soul and Creation, is because this is a three-dimensional realm as explored throughout the foregoing linked article.   And it is for this same reason that in the analogy of Plato's Cave, this realm is portrayed as shadow-images.   Which is also why modern physics has portrayed what we perceive as concrete matter, as a "blemish" created by the intersecting forces within the Ćtheric Field that is the source of the image we perceive with our physical eyes and senses.   Which is why Paul instructed: "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18 KJV).   And why the Gospel of Thomas declares: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you."   Which is why one of the primary objectives of the original Gospel teachings was to "open the eyes of the heart" (see Eyes Of The Heart) which would enable the person to gaze at the source that lies beyond the facade of the "blemish" or shadow-image of the "outer darkness".       
The Individual Soul cannot possess the perceptive-vision or knowledge of the Logos of Mind of God, because the knowledge of the Soul is limited to the individual experiences of that Soul -- whereas, as Creation moves out of the Alpha towards the Omega, the Experiential Knowledge of God who is experiencing through all of the Souls or Neurons in the Logos of Mind of God, has become virtually Infinite.   Which provokes the question: If the pattern of the Whole is replicated into each Soul, then where are the individual neurons that comprise the mind of the Soul?   In the same way that on a Soul-Level, the paradoxical opposite polarities of male and female are ONE -- unlike mankind who dwells in a three-dimensional shadow-realm, the Soul or True-Self of man dwells in a twelve-dimensional realm of Mind and Being that I often portray as the Realm of Souls.   And as demonstrated in the previous subheadings (see The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man), what we call Time is merely a dimension of Soul-Mind that can be moved in.   Thus, because the Mind of the Soul exists across the spectrum of Time, so too does all the soul-personalities generated by the Soul continue to exist within the Soul Mind-Matrix.    
As presented in the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 with respect to the relationship of what is portrayed as your Likeness, and the images which came into existence before you -- i.e., your True-Self or Soul-Self is portrayed in the words: Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice."  Contrary to Eastern dogma and the concept of reincarnation, the soul or soul-self does not enter into this world -- but rather, what enters into the body-vessel at conception is an embryonic image of the higher Soul-Self -- i.e., "...But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"   And these images which failed to become manifest do not reincarnate -- neither do they go to Glory as the Christians believe -- but rather, as images that failed to attain the next level of birth, they remain within the Matrix of the Soul (see Soul-Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral) -- wherein I often portray them as single neurons in the Soul Mind-Matrix.   What this means is that each soul-personality generated into this realm is eventually evolved to the level where that person can be reunited to their source in the higher reality of their Soul -- and that all these personalities that lived individual lives during different time-frames throughout man's history, are continue to consciously dwell within the Soul Mind-Matrix.   And the fact that what we call Time is a dimension of mind that the Soul can move in, means that the whole perception of Time and the Soul must be radically revised is the person is going to evolve beyond the
"animal-soul" level of consciousness that Paul warns is incapable of comprehending the true meaning of the Original Gospel teachings and the Mysteries of Creation.  

The Consciousness of what Paul calls "natural" man -- or, organic man --  is portrayed as being of an "animal-soul" level of mind and being (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature).   The physical body of man has been formed out of the lower three kingdoms of this world -- i.e., mineral, vegetable and animal -- and having emerged out of the initial womb of his physical mother, he has entered the secondary womb of Mother-Earth -- holographically, as a Cosmic Sperm Or Ovum.   Which is why in the Gospel of the Nazirenes which preserves many of the important teachings which were removed from the canonical Gospels by the Church, organic "natural" man is portrayed as a beast who walks in the form of man: "Love you one another and all the creatures of God, Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man. Are they men or women in the image of God whose ways of violence, of oppression and wrong, who choose a lie rather than the truth? No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Israel, and being of Israel they are children of God..." (see Organic Man).    And in the same way that the first stage of birth provided you a physical body which was made up of the lower three earthly kingdoms, when you emerged out of your physical mother's womb, you entered the secondary womb of Mother-Earth in order to bring about the next stage of birth as that of man in the fourth-kingdom -- i.e., "...Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man".  

The Gospel of Thomas opens with the profound statement: And [Jesus} said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."   Which means that to "find the interpretation of these sayings", the seeker/disciple must overcome their own divided nature -- and like an embryo that has been brought into existence through the combining of an ovum and sperm, upon entering this world must bring about the next stage of birth by (quoting Gospel of Thomas saying 22)  "...making the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."  Only when the inner division of mind that is represented in the above and below, the left and right, the outside and the inside, and the male and female, can the next stage of birth be achieved.  

If all that exists, exists within the Mind of God -- i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28 NIV) -- and we are in fact Created in the likeness and image of God -- then it is perhaps best to envision each individual Soul as having a vertical slice of the Whole.   Which means that in the same way that within the Mind of God exists the seven divisions or kingdoms that comprise White Light -- and that paradoxically, on one level each of these kingdoms appear to function independent of the other six -- then these same divided kingdoms not only exist within the higher reality of the Soul, but as an embryonic image of the Soul (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image), mankind is imbued with these same incremental divisions within himself.    And in the same way that as a segment of the Whole, each Soul holographically inherits a vertical slice -- as an image of the Soul, each person inherits a vertical slice of their Higher Soul-Self.   Which means that in the same way that the Great Multitude exists within the Mind of God -- and the multitude of soul-generated personalities exist within the higher reality of the individual Soul -- this means that this same division exists with each of us.   Not only across the spectrum of a fragmented human personality, but also a fragmented lower nature that is comprised of the lower three earthly kingdoms.   And so long as we remain fragmented and divided, it will be impossible for us to achieve the next stage of Soul-Birth where we become At-One with our Higher Soul-Self that is the true Being of Light that we are.      

Returning to the above statements: "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen... -- And why the Gospel of Thomas statement "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you" -- and the statement of the modern physicist who portrays the images we see as the facade of a "blemish" or shadow-image of the "outer darkness" or shadow-image in Plato's Cave of illusions -- because we dwell in a divided three-dimensional realm, what we are perceiving with our very limited earth-bound and generated senses, are aspects of mind that are presented to us in allegorical imagery.   Which means that only when we begin to understand what we see -- with the allegorical meaning of the form of the imagery -- only then can we begin to "Recognize what is in [our] sight...".   And only then can be begin to perceptively-comprehend the higher twelve-dimensional source that causes what the physicist portrays as a "blemish".   But what does this mean? In his 1951 textbook on quantum theory, Bohm offered some interesting speculations on the analogies between quantum processes and thought processes, thus carrying further the celebrated statement made by the astronomer James Jeans two decades earlier: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington:  “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.   Max Planck who is considered the founder of quantum theory stated: "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."   More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”  If you understand what is being said, then you can begin to understand why Mystics who have walked the spiritual path in search of Gnosis and the Divine Manna of the Kingdom of God, have traditionally warned others that what they see with their physical eyes -- i.e., the objects that appear to their organic senses and mind as being concrete and solid matter -- is merely an illusion.    And if we ask the question, what does this mean?    What we are confronted with is a reality that few biblical skeptics are even prepared to embrace -- i.e., that the allegorical nature of the scriptures is merely an extension of man's own consciousness, mind and being.  Because we dwell in a three-dimensional world, what we are seeing is images of mind impressed into the allegorical images of Nature.   As modern science has already proven, what man sees as concrete matter, is in reality a spectrum of frequencies (of thought) that the physical mind interprets as being concrete -- and in reality, the images that we physically see are very much aspects of mind impressed into allegorical forms and symbols of nature that reveal to the seeker/disciple the Forces and Laws operating within their own mind and being (see The Allusion Of The Forms Of Matter).      

 

 

 

 

 

  Why There Is No Such Thing As Reincarnation? - Or Heavenly Glory? Once again man's inability to comprehend his own higher soul-reality, is largely because of his inherent inability to understand the nature of Duality and Paradox.     And while some people attempt to merely dismiss both Duality and the Paradoxical reality of this world, such people do not possess either the necessary depth of vision, or a mature comprehension, that would even allow and permit them to perceive beyond the limits of their dogmatic and ideological beliefs.    Therefore, to even begin to understand the dilemma of life and man's fate when he passes from this world with greater depth, it is imperative to understand the nature and resolution of the paradoxical reality that confronts every single seeker that has ever -- or ever will -- walk upon the face of the earth.   Paradoxical Truths exist on a lower plane as diametrically opposite polarities of truth that, on this level of divided reality, not only oppose and seemingly conflict with each other -- but like male and female opposites, must be merged and raised up within the construct of a third-force higher realty, in order to solve the dualism of the equation.   

There are people who not only claim to remember past lives -- but there is a body of factual evidence to substantiate their claims.   On the other hand, there are those who say that there is no such thing as reincarnation -- and from one paradoxical perspective, there is truth to their position.   Yet, there are others who not only proclaim reincarnation as a provable fact -- but in many instances, they can remember events drawn from their own and others past lives.   And thus, it is important to pose the question: What if both positions are true -- i.e., that while the soul does live many lifetimes in its journey toward perfection and completion -- and yet, the person you are in this world has not only ever lived prior to your own physical conception in the womb of your mother, and when you pass from this life you will never be reborn as another person.   What if both seemingly conflicting positions possess truth -- and yet, they are both lacking a higher Truth that brings the paradoxical opposite positions into Oneness.    Which means that those who believe in reincarnation, as well as those who reject reincarnation, while possessing degrees of truth, are not only equally in error from the perspective of the Greater Picture of Reality -- but that they will each remain hopelessly flat-lined, until which time their thinking, awareness and knowledge has evolved beyond their present dilemma.    

In the Book of Genesis it is proclaimed that if the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (aka Tree of Duality) were to be eaten, that the eater thereof will die.    And while critics of the Bible have often pointed out that after eating the forbidden fruit Adam and Eve did not die as promised -- what the critics fail to understand is that death from a biblical perspective, is not the same as physical death (see The Dead Know Nothing).   And this is why Jesus said of the people of this world: "...let the dead bury their own dead" (Matt 8:22 NKJ).    When the inherent paradoxical duality of this world is understood as being of the mind -- and the duality of the male and female columns of the Tree of Life is understood --  along with the duality and division of what is portrayed in the diagram at the right as the Heavenly Kingdom and the Earthly Kingdom -- then it is the duality of the fruit or knowledge of the paradoxical truths of this world that is portrayed as the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil that brings death to the eater thereof.   And a prime example of this forbidden paradoxical truth is demonstrated in the beliefs in either Eastern reincarnation or that of the Western idea that believers go to Glory.   The problem is seen in the fact that both beliefs hold a degree of truth as well as error -- and like all paradoxical truths, greater error is embraced when you embrace the one polarity and reject its opposite -- which is from a higher soul-perspective, equally true. 

  The True Self: The Gospel of Thomas warns that if you don't know thyself, that you will dwell in a state of poverty.   The Epistle Of Peter and James goes as far as to warn that if the body of esoteric knowledge of the Gospel become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error."  (see Always To Wander In Error).  The Gospel itself teaches that if the Key of Knowledge is dogmatically thrown away and not properly applied to the interpretation of the scriptures, that the believer will be inhibited from entering into the Kingdom.   

Jesus posed the question: "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?" (Luke 9:25).    Therefore, how can you "...lose or forfeit [your] very self?"  In Emerson's article on the Oversoul it is stated that "...our conscious ego is slight and limited in comparison to the soul, despite the fact that we habitually mistake our ego for our true self" (see The Oversoul).  And in like manner, in The Ten Principles Of Gnostic Revelation Philip K. Dick writes: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor" (see The Divine Counterpart).    In the teachings of G.I.Gurdjieff the people of this world are portrayed as "false personalities".    In the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 the people of this world are portrayed as previously generated failed images (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image).   Moreover, The Apocalypse of Peter also contains a description of Jesus’ death that differs drastically from the New Testament gospels.  When Peter sees Jesus being arrested he asks, “Who is the one smiling and laughing above the cross? Is it someone else whose feet and hands they are hammering?”   Jesus answered, “The one you see smiling and laughing above the cross is the living Jesus. The one into whose hands and feet they are driving nails is his fleshly part, the substitute for him. They are putting to shame the one who came into being in the likeness of the living Jesus. Look at him and look at me.”  And from this higher perspective  The Second Treatise of the Great Seth reads, “It was another who drank the gall and the vinegar; it was not I. They struck me with the reed; it was another.  It was another upon whom they placed a crown of thorns. But I was rejoicing in the height over their error. And I was laughing at their ignorance.”  

From the perspective of Plato's Cave, the ultimate illusion is that man in his physical organic form is his true self.   That man is a shadow image of his true self that is not manifest in the physical body-vessel -- an embryonic projection of our true self (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) that is very much like the seed that is cast into the ground in the parable of the Sower And The Seed -- and the development of the seed-essence is wholly dependent upon the condition of the body-consciousness.   From a scriptural perspective, the seed that brings forth one hundredfold and can be portrayed as the "good ground", is representative of that person who travails in TheWay and transforms his body and physical consciousness into the Final Temple -- and as the High Priest of the Living Temple, the disciple of TheWay is then able to enter within the "narrow strait gate" within himself -- enter the Kingdom of Light through the presence of the higher soul and true self -- there by escaping what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which can also be portrayed as escaping the illusions of Plato's Cave.    

If it is indeed true that we are an "image" of our true soul-self that is not manifest in the body-vessel, then we would be forced to not only perceive the scriptures from a totally different perspective, but also we would have to re-think the reality of self we are in this world and our inherent relationship to our true self -- i.e., our soul-self.   In the early scripture known as the Dialogue of the Savior, which was found in the Nag Hammadi Library of Christian Scriptures, Jesus explained that our natural dwelling place is a “place of life” where “the true mind dwells” that is “only pure light.”   Thus, confirming our true soul-reality as a Being of Light.   It is also important to note that there existed a segment of the Church as late as the 6th century that possessed the soul-knowledge that man's true reality and form was a Being of Light.   Among the condemnations of the Emperor Justinian against Origen in the 2nd Council of Constantinople in the year 553 where the teachings on the preexistent soul was condemned and deemed heresy from a dogmatic Church perspective, where this statement: "If anyone says or thinks that, at the resurrection, human bodies will rise spherical in form and unlike our present form, let him be anathema" (see Council Agenda).    The problem is that the true form of the soul is a spherical Being of Light -- and the human body is merely an allegorical manifestation of the mind projected into the symbols of matter.   Moreover, in our natural state we are a Being of Light -- and our body-vessel which we inhabit in this world, is merely an allegorical projection of mind and spirit into the image of the body.   That the journey of the soul over the course of many lifetimes was an integral part of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and was removed by the Roman Emperors who ruled over the doctrines of the Church -- is demonstrated conclusively in The Ten Reasons Why The Church Rejects The Teaching On The Pre-Existent Soul.  

In each instance it is demonstrated that the person you are in this world is not the true being that you are -- but rather, a projected image of your soul which is your true self that does not incarnate into this world.   Which means that the person you are as an embryonic soul-image projected into this world at conception, and it can therefore be stated that you have never lived previous to your present birth.   Moreover, if you fail to attain the next stage of birth that Jesus said is necessary to enter into Life, as a soul-image that has failed to become manifest, as portrayed in Gospel of Thomas saying 84, you can neither reincarnate or can you go to Glory as the dogma of the Church assumes.   Which means that a more enlightened understanding of the Cosmology of Mind would convey to us the correct understanding of the warning of Jesus with respect to the words: "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ) -- the word translated "destruction", in no manner represents what is actually being presented.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.    And in the same way that a woman does not perish if one of her eggs fails to evolve into a fetus, neither does the soul perish when one of its images which is projected into this world, fails to evolve through the three stages of birth.    And in the same way that the woman's egg that fails to become an embryo is "...thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”, so too is the embryonic image of the soul that is projected into this world "...unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose.”    And this purpose, is to bring about the necessary threefold birth that enables the soul to enter into what Jesus portrayed as Life.  To further demonstrate the higher reality of birth that was portrayed to Nicomedus in the Gospel of John (see Cosmic Ovum And Sperm), Jesus stated: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- and this fact is a true reality of life. 

It is important to understand the principle of Wholeness -- as when Jesus healed the people -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of a physician" (Matt 9:12).   And when the scriptures are understood in their original context, this is in fact the question that is posed to everyone: "When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had been now a long time in that condition, he said unto him, Will you be made whole?" (John 5:6).   And this lack of wholeness -- or, division between the person you are in this world, and your higher soul-self who is your true-self and Being of Light -- is what is being referenced to in the Epistle of James where it states: "a two-souled man is unstable in all his ways" (James 1:8) -- which Barns Notes On The Bible states: "A double minded man - The word here used, δίψυχος dipsuchos occurs only here and in James 4:8. It means, properly, one who has two souls"    And James 4:8 reads: "draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you; cleanse hands, ye sinners! and purify hearts, ye two-souled!"   And of those who are portrayed as being divided -- i.e., two-souled -- James writes that "For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord" (James 1:7).   And with respect to the original Gospel Message, achieving a state of Wholeness and becoming ONE with one's higher soul-self, is the initial objective of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.  

In the Key of Knowledge I raise and answer the question: Is the Gospel Copied From Another Source?   Briefly quoting from this article: What the Atheists and critics have never considered is this:  The fact that what is presented is in the scriptures is not at all an historical account (see An Inconvenient Truth) -- but rather, what is presented is a series of Universal Allegorical Symbols of Laws, Natural Forces and Higher Consciousness that is totally relevant to every person who has ever walked upon the face of the earth.   What this means is that such allegorical symbols as the Virgin Birth,  the Twelve Disciples, the symbol of Joseph that is not at all understood, the crucifixion, and even the name Jesus, all portray realities and conditions of mind that are as universal to the Ebionite Nazirene authors of the Gospels, as these universal allegorical symbols are to all the people's of the earth -- even those who live on a remote island.   As a mystic begins to comprehend the reality of what is portrayed as the Illusions of Plato's Cave -- and he begins to discover that what is portrayed as illusions, are in fact allusions -- and all the forms of nature are imbued with aspects of mind impressed into the forms that man sees and interacts with on a physical level -- only then can such a mystic begin to evolve to the degree that they fulfill the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."    The fact that this world is very much a mental-womb (see The Womb Of Mother-Earth) -- and what man observes in the outer world are aspects of mind projected into the forms of nature that when rightly understood, have the power to nourish him in the Gospel objective of bringing about the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- culminating in the initiation of the next stage of soul-birth where the person you are in this world as an Embryonic Image Of Your Higher Soul-Self (see also The Reality Of The Soul), is then able to be nourished by the higher impressions of the soul which act as food for the mind, in conjunction with the Universal Laws and Forces of Consciousness acting within the Cosmology of Mind which has been preserved in the esoteric base of knowledge concealed within the allegorical scriptures (see An Inconvenient Truth) -- as the seeker/disciple brings about that condition of mind portrayed in the name Jesus (Yeshua/Joshua), as the prodigal son/daughter is reborn in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see http://GateOfEden.com ).

What believers, critics and pseudo-intellectuals all fail to understand is the reality that man does not make up the allegorical symbols that are used in the scriptures -- but rather, he interprets from a higher state of mind what already exists.   In the analogy of Plato's Cave, the forms and images that are danced upon the wall of the Cave that those imprisoned erroneously believe is real, are created by objects of a higher reality that are real.   And this is why the Gospel of Thomas declares the necessity to "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."   The fact that EVERYTHING that you observe in Nature is aspects of mind allegorically impressed into the forms that organic man observes with his very limited physical senses -- and the meaning of these allegorical symbols are the expression of Divine Providence -- the authors of the scriptures merely used what is called the "language of the soul" to compose the scriptures in a language that already exists and is Universally Comprehended by the higher soul-self of each person that is not manifest in the physical body (see  Man As An Embryonic Image Of Your Higher Soul-Self ).   That the symbolism themselves in their original scriptural native environment has the power to act as a catalyst that connects the seeker/disciples mind with what these symbols represent within the Mind of the Soul-Self -- and that as a catalyst, the allegorical scriptures composed in the language of the soul has the potential to bring about the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind -- is a reality that those who reject the scriptures as mere myth, do not at all understand.

  

If we begin to understand the above -- and the fact that the ancient Mystery Religions were all in search of escaping the illusions of this world -- prevailing against the Forces and Laws of Mind and Consciousness -- and with respect to Pythagoras the article on his religious system tells us: "Pythagoras and his followers were important for their contributions to both religion and science. His religious teachings were based on the doctrine of metempsychosis, which held that the soul was immortal and was destined to a cycle of rebirths until it could liberate itself from the cycle through the purity of its life. A number of precepts were drawn up as inviolable rules by which initiates must live.  Pythagoreanism differed from the other philosophical systems of its time in being not merely an intellectual search for truth but a whole way of life which would lead to salvation. In this respect it had more in common with the mystery religions than with philosophy."

Thus, it was the objective of Pythagoras to embrace "Wholeness" -- and if one can begin to comprehend the Laws and Forces controlling one's own mind and being -- in conjunction with the Law of Octaves (see The Law Of Octaves) -- this knowledge of numbers as it applies to one's own mind and being, is of the utmost importance.   

When our astronauts flew to the moon, while it is true that rocket propulsion was used to escape the earths gravity and limiting factor of its organic atmosphere, the astronauts then utilized the Natural Laws to escape the pull of the earth, and permit the spacecraft to be pulled to its destination.   Scientifically, this would be portrayed as slingshot paths that are called Gravity Assist Trajectories.  They use the gravity and motion of planets to pull a spacecraft into a new path.   Quoting the article on Navigation in space"Gravity is a very important force. Every object in space exerts a gravitational pull on every other, and so gravity influences the paths taken by everything traveling through space. It is the glue that holds together entire galaxies. It keeps planets in orbit. It makes it possible to use human-made satellites and to go to and return from the Moon. It makes planets habitable by trapping gasses and liquids in an atmosphere. It can also cause life-destroying asteroids to crash into planets.   ...Consider Voyager 2 ... the spacecraft's arrival was carefully timed so that it would pass behind Jupiter in its orbit around the Sun. As the spacecraft came into Jupiter's gravitational influence, it fell toward Jupiter, increasing its speed toward maximum at closest approach to Jupiter. Since all masses in the universe attract each other, Jupiter sped up the spacecraft substantially, and the spacecraft slowed down Jupiter in its orbit by a tiny amount, since the spacecraft approached from behind. At this point, Voyager 2 had been sped up enough by Jupiter's gravity to get a speed greater than Jupiter's escape velocity. As it left, it slowed down again, but it never slowed all the way to the speed it was before getting to Jupiter. It left the area near Jupiter faster and in a different trajectory. This technique was repeated at Saturn and Uranus.  Gravity assists can be also used to decelerate a spacecraft, by flying in front of a body in its orbit. When the Galileo spacecraft arrived at Jupiter, passing close in front of Io in its orbit, Galileo experienced deceleration, helping it go into orbit around Jupiter. "    

So, our scientists in understanding the Natural Laws, timed their sequences where they initiated rocket burns to take advantage of the natural movement of the planets, where they could then manipulate these Natural Forces to bring about the results which they envisioned.   In the  The Law Of Octaves there is a natural twisting of the sequence between the third to fourth sequence-step -- and when this twisting sequence is applied to our own minds, it is this twisting of the Laws that keeps our thinking earth-bound and carnal.   But in living a Wholistic Lifestyle, Pythagoras, the core of the ancient Mystery Religions, as well as Jewish, Christian and Sufi Mystics, came to understand how the proper impressions at the right interval of the progression of one's thinking, had the effect of a rocket-burn that broke the pull of the earth-carnal -- enabling the seeker/disciple to begin to break through the barrier of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which can also be portrayed as escaping the illusions of Plato's Cave.   And when what Jesus portrayed as the Key of Knowledge is applied to the scriptures in the endeavor to turn them within to unlock the inner "narrow strait gate" within one's self -- entering the Kingdom of Light through the presence of the higher soul and true self -- by achieving what Jesus portrayed as the next stage of soul-birth, the image-self was then able to prevail over the Laws and Forces of the physical body and mind, and enter into the Permanence of the Higher Soul-Self -- and ultimately, the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.      

In the approximate year of 178 of our Common Era, Celsus, the Epicurean Philosopher and opponent of Christianity published a rather embarrassing work in opposition to Christianity known as The True Word or Discourse.    It is said that this work was widely published and used by the Pagan world as an attack on the Church.   Seventy years after its publication The True Word was still so widely circulated, that the Church Father Origen was commissioned by St. Ambrosius to refute this attack by Celsus.   When Celsus attacked the Church for being a “secret system”, teaching some a different doctrine than others, Origen replied: “Moreover, since he frequently calls the Christian doctrine a secret system, we must confute him on this point also, since almost the entire world is better acquainted with what Christians preach than with the favorite opinions of philosophers.  For who is ignorant of the statement that Jesus was born of a virgin, and that He was crucified, and that His Resurrection is an article of faith among many, and that a general judgment is announced to come, in which the wicked are to be punished according to their desserts, and the righteous to be duly rewarded?” 

Fundamentally, what Origen enumerated was elementary Christian doctrine 101 -- i.e., what the Apostle Paul refers to as the “milk” -- or that basic doctrine which still exists to this very day (see Mystery Of The Gospel).    Modern Christians have no idea that the position of the pre-Nicene Church was that the allegorical doctrine that is believed today as an article of faith is representative of entry-level Christianity that was “preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (see Exoteric Doctrines Designed For Entry-Level Believers).   The Church Father Origen who was commissioned by the Church acknowledged these doctrines -- refuted Celsus by stating that these beliefs are openly expounded as articles of Christian faith, and then Origen explained: “And yet the mystery of the Resurrection, not being understood, is made a subject of ridicule among the unbelievers.  In these circumstances, to speak of the Christian doctrine as a secret system is altogether absurd.  But that there should be certain doctrines, not made known to the multitude, which are after the exoteric ones having been taught, is not a peculiarity of Christianity alone, but also of philosophic systems, in which certain truths are exoteric and others are esoteric.  Some of the heroes of Pythagoras were content with his ipse dixit; while others were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears.  Moreover, all the mysteries that are celebrated everywhere throughout Greece and the barbarous countries, although held in secret, have no discredit thrown upon them, so that it is in vain he endeavors to calumniate the secret doctrines of Christianity, seeing that he does not correctly understand its nature”.

Thus, the question: Why could Pythagoras only reveal the esoteric knowledge of the Forces and Laws of Mind to his closest of disciples -- i.e., "...while others were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears."    And why was the pre-Nicene Church portrayed as a "secret system" wherein the inner spiritual core believed very different than the congregation of faith-based believers (see The Secret Doctrine Of Christianity).   Because this sacred body of esoteric knowledge could only be revealed to those who had themselves become Whole.   Unlike the very simple presentation of  The Law Of Octaves in the example provided, the human mind is complex -- with each of the 12 spheres of the Pattern of Mind as portrayed in the diagram of the Tree of Life each initiating a Major Sub-Octave -- wherein each from the perspective of mind holographically manifest in the pattern of the microcosm, which can be very much portrayed as the influence and gravity of a planet on the larger scale of the Macrocosm.   Thus, this body of esoteric knowledge which appeared to be the study of the intervals of the music scale and the cosmology of the universe -- i.e., in the words of Origen: "...Some of the heroes of Pythagoras were content with his ipse dixit" ("In the field of Logic, the Latin phrase Ipse dixit ("He, himself, said it") is known as the bare assertion fallacy, wherein it identifies and describes a dogmatic statement asserted, but unproved, which the speaker expects the listener to accept — on faith — to be true" Wikipedia) -- which as in the esoteric teachings of Christianity as well as all such systems, it is necessary to "accept — on faith — to be true"  until which time the seeker/disciple can achieve the necessary Wholeness and Heightening And Expansion Of Mind, necessary to prevail over the Forces and Laws of Mind and Consciousness, and achieve the next stage of soul-birth.  

In the 16th century Giordano Bruno (see Spiritual Religion) who was a priest in the Roman Catholic Church, also portrayed the cosmology of the universe as a cloak for his body of esoteric teachings.   As can be seen in the following quotation, Giordano Bruno understood the higher reality of the soul or soul-self that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes (quoting) He then proceeded to explain how this knowledge could be acquired. "Within every man," he said, "there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge.  ...This principle in man moves and governs the body, is superior to the body, and cannot be constrained by it." It is Spirit, the Real Self, "in which, from which and through which are formed the different bodies, which have to pass through different kinds of existences, names and destinies."  Giordano Bruno taught that the Law of Reincarnation is indissolubly connected with its twin doctrine of Karma, or "High Justice."  Every act performed brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life. In proportion as the soul has conducted itself in a body, it determines for itself its transition into another body.  And then, to show that the doctrine was not original with him, he carefully explained that it had been taught by Pythagoras, Plato and the Neoplatonists, and that he was merely passing on what he had learned from his predecessors.  (Giordano Bruno - Homage To The Forgotten Philosopher).

The question raised in the foregoing confronts every person who has ever walked the face of the earth -- i.e., how this sacred knowledge can be acquired.   And when understood, his words parrallel those of Philip K. Dick where Giordano wrote: "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge" -- or, in the words of Dick: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us" -- and one of the primary objectives and purpose of all religious teachings, is to tap into man's higher soul-self and acquire this sacred knowledge that can bring about one's transformation which first brings one's union with our true self -- i.e., our higher soul-self -- and ultimately, with our own divided nature overcome, our Union with God which was accomplished by our brother the historical Jesus.   And this is in fact the position of the first-century followers and disciples of the man Jesus who taught that by fulfilling the Law within himself he became in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366 -- see http://Ebionite.com ).   And who is this Son of God that the man Jesus became in Union with?   The mystic visionaries portrayed the Son of God as the Logos -- or Mind of God (see Logos).   Which is why Jesus taught that all his followers and disciples are to seek out the One Teacher which in the Clementine Homilies the Apostle Peter portrays as the True Prophet -- stating: "And therefore I advise not only wise men, but indeed all men who have a desire of knowing what is advantageous to them, that they seek after the true Prophet; for it is He alone who knoweth all things, and who knoweth what and how every man is seeking. For He is within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his knowledge”.

Once again, before you can even begin to draw near the Indwelling Logos, you must first achieve Unity with your inner soul-self that is a Being of Light that is neither manifest in, nor can the soul "...be constrained by" the physical body of man.   And to preserve the esoteric knowledge that the Church Father Origen portrayed as the "minor mysteries", the authors of the scriptures preserved and protected this base of knowledge by concealing it within the text of the allegorical scriptures -- composed in the Language of the Soul with which all of Creation is holographically written in.   And this is why the Deists who emerged out of the Age of Enlightenment proclaimed that the reasoning powers of the mind could be evolved and expanded, and God could then be seen and understood through a higher understanding of the Created Universe -- which, being holographically composed in the Language of the Soul, has the capacity to reveal its Author as stated by Paul where he writes: "...because that which is known about God ...for God made it evident to them.  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse" (Rom 1:19-20 NAS).    And if we ask why and how can God be understood through the attributes of Creation and the Laws of Nature?    Because there is a Divine Pattern that all of Creation is holographically imprinted with the Spiritual DNA of its Creator -- and if you understand the pattern that the Laws of God imbued into all that exists, you will then begin to perceive and comprehend the Source that brought forth the ALL that exists. 

Why, then, can this Language of the Soul be understood by a few, and is not at all understood by the vast majority of mankind?   Because the vast majority of mankind neither understand, nor have they ever sought, to bring about that condition of mind that can be portrayed as Wholeness.   Further, in lacking self-knowledge, they remain in what the Gospel of Thomas portrays as endemic carnal poverty -- i.e., "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   And it is imperative that the questioning mind come to the realization and recognition that each person who looks out at the world does so through the filter of their beliefs which are predicated upon their condition of mind as directly determined by the degree that they have each undergone the process of the Heightening And Expansion Of Mind, in conjunction with the Spiritual DNA which is the result of what the soul of each person has accomplished in the preceding lives that they have lived -- which, in the words of the Church Father Origen is expressed in the statement that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see The Chickens Come Home To Roost).     And it is further explained by Origen that: "If it can be shown that an incorporeal and reasonable being has life in itself independently of the body and that it is worse off in the body than out of it, then beyond a doubt bodies are only of secondary importance and arise from time to time to meet the varying conditions of reasonable creatures. Those who require bodies are clothed with them, and contrawise, when fallen souls have lifted themselves up to better things their bodies are once more annihilated. They are thus ever vanishing and ever reappearing" (Origen, from A Select Library of the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers of the Christian Church, P. Schaff and H. Wace editors)

Man in his organic "natural" condition of mind is blind to his own higher soul-reality -- and this condition of mind was portrayed by Jesus as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).  Which is why the (Gospel of Thomas) states: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".    And to assist in this process of healing one's inherent blindness due to the human condition of looking out at the world through the limited earth-bound senses and cognitive understanding of the physical consciousness imposed upon man by virtue of his body-vessel, scriptures were composed which were written in the same Language of the Soul with which all of Creation is composed in.   And that organic man is blind to the true meaning of the scriptures -- and his reasoning and intellect is incapable of comprehending anything beyond the mundane so long as he remains divided from this true self -- his higher soul-self -- that the Apostle Peter warns in the Clementine Homilies with respect to the true meaning of the scriptures: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".      

In much the same vane, the Apostle Paul warns: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world..." (Col 2:8 NIV).  But what does this means?   In the above Peter had warned "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   

In making reference to The True Prophet who Jesus portrayed as the One Teacher, Peter warns that: "Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.   If we ask the question: What is being said to the believer who desires to be faithful to the Gospel Teachings?   In the same way that the believer is commanded to seek out the One Teacher, and the commandment that "...when the law of God (scriptures) is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind" -- it is being stated that there is only One Source of Truth -- and that the wisdom of man will misguide the seeker.   Which inability of organic man to comprehend higher soul and spiritual reality is expressed in the words: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).  By design, human reasoning is incapable of understanding the true meaning of the scriptures -- i.e., "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind."   And neither should you listen to other men's gravely flawed interpretations of the scriptures -- i.e., "...For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".   Jesus taught that there is only ONE Source of Truth, and the disciple/seeker must learn directly from that One Teacher.   And thus, these words which are representative of the core Gospel teachings, are inconceivable to the modern faith-based believer who is divided and disenfranchised from the very essence and objectives of the Gospel teachings -- overwhelmed and anchored to a carnal mindset that is of the "outer darkness" -- spiritually disenfranchised by innumerable manmade opinions, factions and sects which totally alienate the believer from the Truth and the Kingdom.

   

Those personalities who are portrayed as false-personality by Gurdjieff -- the ego-self by Emerson and Dick -- or, the illusion of self in the analogy of  Plato's Cave that Jesus portrayed as dwelling in the  "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- or, the failed-images of the soul in Gospel Of Thomas saying 84 -- were said to have very limited salvation beyond the grave by Valentinus, simply because only the true being that we are can either (re)incarnate, or go to Glory in the Christian understanding.   Jesus taught to "Enter by the narrow gate"  -- and unless the ego-self is able to bring about the next stage of birth they "...cannot see the kingdom of God".   Being not the real self, Gospel of Thomas saying 84 correctly portrays them as un-manifest (failed) images of the soul.   And it can therefore be stated that these failed images are not "known by God", because they are the direct expression of the soul -- and their connection to God is by proxy through the soul.   In like manner the Deists or American Gnostics stated that Creator-God did not directly intervene in the affairs of man -- i.e., that Creator-God "...endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then abandoned it to the operation of these powers acting as second causes" -- and when properly understood, if Creator-God directly intervened in the lives of man, that would be synonymous with intervening in the thought-images of the soul that is being perfected by the "self-sustaining and self-acting powers and Laws" of God that controls the development of the soul in order to bring about its ultimate destiny.    

The Eastern concept of reincarnation where the soul passes through a cloud of forgetfulness upon entering the body in the process of rebirth, is based upon a profound ignorance of the soul or true self that remains in what is portrayed as the realm of souls.   And in the same way that Gospel of Thomas saying 84 portrays the plight of the failed image as having come into being after the previous failed images of the soul -- i.e., "...But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!" -- those failed images can neither reincarnate, nor can they go to Glory as the Christians imagine.    As failed images, they are very much as portrayed in the (above) Schofield Reference Bible as "...unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.    And yet, when the higher reality of the soul is understood as being segmented and comprised of almost countless separate holographic conscious parts that comprise the Whole -- i.e., "The soul...", writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila in Soul Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral) -- only then can we begin to comprehend the plight of the failed images which the soul has generated into this world.   And at the forgoing link I explore what St. Teresa portrays as  “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms", as the spiritual and mental embodiment of a Great Matrix of Mind within which each of the previous images which the soul-self has generated and lived, as existing in separate rooms within the mansion of the soul.  

  The Matrix Of Soul-Mind: In the subheading entitled The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man, it is demonstrated that time is merely a dimension of mind within the higher reality of the soul-self -- existing within the Great Matrix of Mind of the soul.    Thus, the Encyclopedia states that: In mathematics, a matrix (plural matrices, or less commonly matrixes) is a rectangular array of numbers, symbols, or expressions. The individual items in a matrix are called its elements or entries" -- and in the mental matrix of the soul, each previous image represents a point of consciousness within a field of dynamic life-experiences of the soul-self that is the sum total of all the experiences of all the lives that the soul has lived.    Where Eastern, New Age and Pop-Psychology that ascribes to the Collective Consciousness philosophy that often imagines God as a Great Amoeba where oneness means the same -- just the opposite is true -- and oneness is the sum total of a great diversity of different experiences and conscious realities that Complete and bring about Wholeness.   And since the soul was created in the (holographic) image of God, then the soul in like manner is the sum total of all the life-experiences of all the images that exist as points of consciousness and being within the mansion of the soul-self.   And in many respects, this higher soul-reality can be portrayed as the embodiment of what the Church portrays as Hell, because each image-personality within the matrix of the soul-mind continues to dwell in the reality of the life that it lived here on earth.  

The Church Father Origen stated that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis) -- and these strengths and weaknesses are the direct expression of the victories and/or defeats dynamically manifest within the matrix of the soul-mind that each person in the present life draws upon.   Where man envisions memory as being stored and ingrained in a computer like storage disk that can be looked up, such a scenario is simply not the case.   All the past images that the soul has lived as, continues to exist within the matrix of the soul-mind -- and as portrayed by St. Teresa, it can be said that each has its own room or space within the countless segments of the castle of the soul.   And since time is a dimension of mind (see The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man), each of these past image-personalities exist as points of consciousness within the soul-mind matrix.   Within the matrix of the soul that lived as Hitler, the personality of Hitler still dwells as a point of consciousness that continues his former existence.   And in like manner, Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan expressed the mystical teachings of the Jewish sage Isaac Luria when he stated that the 6 million Holocaust victims "were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done”  (see The Chickens Come Home To Roost).   Which means that within the matrix of mind of the soul who lived as Hitler, exists a previous image-personality who were victimized by the people who lived as Jews under Nazi Germany.   In the same foregoing link I present the example of Barack Obama's spiritual advisor the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who subscribes to what is called Black Liberation Theology.   And within the matrix of the soul-mind of the Rev. Wright exists an image-personality that previously lived as a white slave owner.   Which means that the Rev. Wright's hatred of white people is the result of his abominations towards the black race by a previous soul-image that continues to dwell within the matrix of the Rev. Wright's soul. 

Mankind, who Jesus portrays as dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- or what Plato portrays as a Cave of illusions -- dwells within a holographic reality that exists within a larger holograph that he cannot gain access to without the proper development of mind.   And while the Laws of Creation orchestrate the events based upon man's own past experiences in the present -- and it is these Laws and Forces which the Deists portrayed as being "...endowed ...with self-sustaining and self-acting powers ...acting as second causes" which orchestrate and even script the lives of man in the present that cause him to confront his own self -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV) -- it is the development of man's intuitive spheres of mind that provides him direct access into the previous soul-images within the matrix of the soul-mind that has orchestrated the events that man is experiencing in the present (see Spiritual Intuitive Development).   If Hitler had been able to directly draw upon his previous experiences as a victim of the aggression of those people who in his life were born as Jews who Rabbi Yosefan portrayed as having previously lived as "...sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done”, then he might have been able to draw upon the insight to break the perpetual loop of the Laws (see Groundhog Day in What's Wrong With Wearing A Seat Belt? ), and he would have been able to overcome the Laws which the Deists portrayed as being "...endowed ...with self-sustaining and self-acting powers", and free himself from the shackles of what Jesus portrayed as The Prison -- or the Conditions of Birth.  

Did the Jews who prayed for deliverance from Hitler invoke the Law of Grace by repenting from their own past actions which had orchestrated their lives in the present?   Perhaps the best answer to this question is found in another question: Has the Rev. Wright repented from his own past as a white slave owner?   And in accord with the conditions of The Prison of which Jesus stated “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26) -- would people act differently if they realized that their present experiences is a direct result of the previous actions of their own past soul-images?   In most instances, the religious/philosophical and political leaders in the present, were the leaders in the past, and they are merely confronting their own previous actions.   That their followers who blindly attach themselves to these leaders, share in the fate of what the Laws orchestrate, as each man confronts his own past actions, is a reality that can be portrayed as a common destiny under the Laws.    The Germans who followed Hitler, will in the future follow their leader into a type of future hell.   In like manner, those who sit in the congregation of people such as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who blames the white race from it plight as a black man, will continue in the future to share in the destiny that awaits them based upon their present allegiance to the Rev. Wright.    And this is true of all of mankind with respect to the good, the bad and the truly ugly events of this world.   The Law is that as you do unto others, the same will be returned to you.   And while this return may not be in the present life, it will come back upon the soul until the last debt is repaid and neutralized -- i.e., "...till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (see Getting Out Of The Prison).    And of even greater importance is the fact that so long as debts are owed to one's brothers and sisters, it remains impossible to fulfill the Laws and manifest the Final Temple within one's self (see The Laws - The Gift On The Altar) -- which renders such a person totally incapable of true spiritual development and advancement, and incapable of understanding the higher reality of the soul.   Which means that such a person is doomed to failure as a generated soul-image, until the debts under the Laws are first satisfied and overcome.

  Prayer - And Man's Interaction With The Laws: When the Spiritual Americans who were known as Deists portrayed Creator-God as having "...endowed the world at creation with self-sustaining and self-acting powers and then abandoned it to the operation of these powers acting as second causes" (see American Spirituality), this same exact pattern of the Laws is presented in the parable of the prodigal son.   Regardless of the son's suffering and hardships while he was dwelling in the Far Country under the control of what Jesus portrayed as the Citizen of that realm, at no time did the Father or any of his Servants come to the assistance of the prodigal son.   What is not at all understood is the reality that the prodigal son could not return to the Father, without first completing the objectives of this world which is to bring about Wholeness and Completion -- and this is personified in the example for all of mankind in the pattern of Jesus.   Yet, the whole life and purpose of the example of Jesus was rendered worthless, when the fourth century Church of Constantine declared that Jesus was God Incarnate -- and corrupted the Gospels to make them support the dogma of Rome as seen in the editing of the statement of the Father at Jesus' baptism in the Jordan where the original Gospels declared: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" (see TheTenWords.com).   If, as the Gospels originally stated, Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism -- and his original disciples were correct in their assertion that he was a holy man who fulfilled the Law within himself -- thereby, becoming the first prodigal son to return to the Kingdom of the Father, and the example and pattern for all of mankind to imitate and follow --  then when the Church of Constantine declared Jesus God incarnate, they rendered the example of Jesus in the Gospels worthless.   It means absolutely nothing for God incarnate to accomplish what Jesus did -- after all, he would have been supernatural, all knowing and all powerful.   But if Jesus was a man who accomplished these things when he fulfilled the Law of God within himself, then the life and example of Jesus takes on an entirely different meaning than it does today.   That Jesus was a man, just like all other men, is the reason why he stated that his followers would be able to accomplish even more than he did.   And why he portrayed mankind as his brothers -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).   That the Virgin Birth was not in the original Gospels -- but was a later addition -- and is an allegorical portrayal of the next stage of birth that all of mankind must bring about within themselves (see Virgin Birth), is representative of a Spiritual Objective that all the prodigal sons must experience in order to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.

Paul portrayed the Law as being given to man by the Angels (see Two Creation Accounts) -- and in the allegorical account of the scriptures with the Key of Knowledge properly applied, what is portrayed as Angels is an allegorical portrayal of the Laws that Jesus taught all of mankind must prevail over -- i.e., "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.  Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.   For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:18-20 NKJ).   But the Church remains totally ignorant of the reality of the Laws, because they have totally discarded the Laws by virtue of their dogma whereby they promote the belief that Jesus did away with the necessity of observing and fulfilling the Law and the Commandments.     And in not understanding the Laws of the Far Country that moderates man's thoughts and actions in the manner of a Living Bio-Feedback machine, Christians remain ignorant of the fact that mankind has the ability to interact and invoke these Laws with both his thoughts and actions.   But, in order to invoke the Law of Grace, the person must have repented, had a change of mind, and demonstrate this change of mind through one's actions towards their brothers and sisters.   

In the above subheading on The Divine Counterpart, Philip K. Dick portrays man's relationship to his higher soul-self in the words: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor."    But without a change of mind demonstrated through our actions, it would be impossible for the image-personality that is manifest in this world, to be helped by the higher soul-self who is portrayed as our divine counterpart that is un-fallen -- meaning, is not in any manner ruled over by the Citizen of the Far Country in the manner that the lost prodigal son is.    Christians, who have themselves rejected any knowledge of the Laws, imagine that Creator-God is going to intervene in the life of man whose plight is being orchestrated and scripted by the Laws of God that returns each person's actions back upon themselves -- and in their ignorance, they imagine that Creator-God will bypassing man's unfallen soul-self who is his true self -- and come to the rescue of fallen man without a repentance and change of mind on his part.   Thereby rejecting the words of Jesus when he warned with respect to the conditions of The Prison: “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing”.     

In the subheadings on  American Spirituality the Laws of this world are portrayed as a Living Bio-Feedback machine that responds back to each person's thoughts and actions.     The whole of what is called the New Thought religious movement is based upon the reality that the Laws of this world respond to our thoughts -- and the projection of positive thoughts, returns back to man positive results.   New Thought is based upon the work of Phineas P. Quimby (see Father Of New Thought) -- and what is known as the Quimby Manuscripts is available for study.    But more important is the fact that Quimby proved that the Laws responded to the thinking and actions of the person.  

In the same way that the practitioners of New Thought could interact in a positive manner with the Laws -- bringing about positive results in their lives -- when Christians or other religious people pray or beseech the Lord for help, if their request is sincere and for the greater good, they are able to invoke the Laws to bring about the conditions they seek.   Moreover, if there is a genuine change in mind and actions for the good, then their own higher soul-self is able to reach down and assist them -- i.e., in the words of Philip Dick: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us".   

  The Dynamic-Matrix And Cosmology Of Mind: Why is man of a greater intelligence than the animal kingdom?   Why are some men said to be wise and full of wisdom, while others are ignorant and unknowing?  What makes God the Supreme Intelligence?   What does it mean to Know Thyself?   While these questions are of the utmost importance, few people could correctly answer them with any wisdom and understanding.   Why?   Because they lack an understanding of the reality of thought and mind that has the power to enlighten.  

Many in the New Age can be portrayed as worshiping a god that is perhaps best portrayed as a divine amoeba -- where the concepts of equality and oneness, is interpreted to be the same.     What is not realized is the fact that Supreme Intellect and Knowing is dependent upon the wisdom gained through experiential knowledge -- which is itself drawn upon a great diversity of experiences that are raised up to a Higher Order and Perception of Reality.   A wise man is wise, because he is able to draw upon a great body of diverse experiences in the endeavor to arrive at an intelligent and enlightened position.   An immature child or adolescent lacks wisdom and insight, because the immature mind cannot draw upon the diversity of experiences that the person of great wisdom does.     But because this great diversity of experiential knowledge must be dynamic -- and able to be accessed across the spectrum of paradoxical opposites -- only the most enlightened of mankind possesses the depth to comprehend and draw upon the Cosmology of Mind.   

In the foregoing I make reference to the eternal soul of man -- or soul-self -- that is the accumulative total of all the lives that the soul has ever lived.   That our soul-self is our true self that is a Being of Light -- and that we dwell within the higher reality of the soul.   While the soul itself does not and cannot incarnate into the body-vessel, what does incarnate is portrayed as an embryonic image of the soul that is projected into the body-vessel at the time of conception.   Which means that the whole New Age and Eastern concept of reincarnation where the soul is said to pass through a cloud of forgetfulness as it is reborn in this world, is simply not true.   In the foregoing link,  The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man, it is demonstrated that what we call Time is a dimension of mind that can be dynamically accessed by the soul-self -- that all of the previous soul-images as represented in the past lives of the soul, still exist within what is often portrayed as the Mansion of the Soul -- and that the experiential knowledge of each lifetime that the soul has lived, can be drawn upon in the present.  

The problem is that while we, as an image of our higher soul-self, did not consciously live and experience what our soul's did in previous lifetimes, the person who develops their intuitive spheres of mind is able to access this experiential knowledge gained in past lives through the dynamic matrix of mind, and draw upon those past experiences in the present.     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And as such, they can't come to terms with how the Gospel teachings states that there are two ways -- i.e., the narrow path to Life that few are able to follow, and the broad-way to self-destruction.   After all, if you are born again in another life, then how can the Gospel teachings be true?   If mediums and psychics can communicate with people who have passed over to the other side and even Atheists survive physical death, then how can the Gospel teachings be true.   The problem is that their organic limitations inhibit them from comprehending the Matrix of the Soul wherein all the images dwell in what St. Tereasa portrayed as the Manson of the Soul -- and the fact that each of the images which the soul generated into this world, only lives one life.   Which means that the confusion that exists between the religions of the east and west, is purely organic -- and the dogma of both are equally corrupted.   


 

Without understanding the Cosmology of Mind as it exists within the great Matrix of the Soul, it becomes impossible to even begin to understand the rhetoric of those who attempt to suppress the ego -- i.e., quoting the above: "our conscious ego is slight and limited in comparison to the soul, despite the fact that we habitually mistake our ego for our true self".    If you suppress the ego-self and attempt to go the way of the Monk (see Monk), then you are confined to a dungeon where you spend your time chakra-gazing -- remaining in an ignorance is bliss state of mind.   And if you engage the world without understanding the nature of the Laws and the Allusions of what you perceive, you become lost in the Far Country -- remaining a virtual stranger to your own true self that you are a counterfeit image of serving the god of this world.   Only when you evolve each appetite and aspect of self to its highest expression -- gaining an understanding of the threefold salf as existing within the Matrix of the Soul -- which means that man dwells within God by Proxy -- and come to Know Thyself -- can you even begin to prevail against the Laws and Forces that enslave the rest of mankind.   But to accomplish this, you must develop and nourish the organic mind in order to bring about the original objective of becoming the Final Temple

The below web sites are written in the name of Allan Cronshaw, which is my birth name in this present life.   The manner in which these other web sites are composed is very different than on this one -- wherein, on these other web sites there is an attempt to document and demonstrate every proof and concept of TheWay using a multitude of resources and biblical verses -- while on this web site there is no other authority than Jacob writing to you as the Brother Of Yeshua who was the leader of the Hebrew/Christian movement of TheWay.   In the recently discovered Gospel of Thomas it is written: (12) The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?" Jesus said to them, "Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being."   So to once again restore the teachings of TheWay which is today known as Christianity, the Lord has sent Jacob/James, the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus, back into the world in order to guide the faithful flock into the Truth, the Light, and the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21).   It is there that my brother Yeshua/Jesus awaits you.

The above warning with respect to the predicted corruption of Yeshua's teachings is further stated in the first century writings known today as the Clementine Recognitions where it is written: "Our Lord and Prophet, who hath sent us, declared to us that the wicked one, having disputed with Him forty days, and having prevailed nothing against Him, promised that he would send apostles from amongst his subjects, to deceive.  Wherefore, above all, remember to shun apostle or teacher or prophet who does not first accurately compare his preaching with that of James, who was called the brother of my Lord, and to whom was entrusted to administer the church of the Hebrews in Jerusalem, — and that even though he come to you with witnesses: lest the wickedness which disputed forty days with the Lord, and prevailed nothing, should afterwards, like lightning falling from heaven upon the earth, send a preacher to your injury, as now he has sent Simon upon us, preaching, under pretense of the truth, in the name of the Lord, and sowing error. Wherefore He who hath sent us, said, ‘Many shall come to me in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits ye shall know them.’" 

Again it is warned by Clement: "Wherefore observe the greatest caution, that you believe no teacher, unless he bring from Jerusalem the testimonial of James the Lord’s brother, or of whosoever may come after him. For no one, unless he has gone up thither, and there has been approved as a fit and faithful teacher for preaching the word of Christ, — unless, I say, he brings a testimonial thence, is by any means to be received. But let neither prophet nor apostle be looked for by you at this time, besides us. For there is one true Prophet, whose words we twelve apostles preach"

As predicted, the ministers of Satan have succeeded in altering the teachings of my brother Yeshua, and continue to lead many into the abyss of darkness.   But have no fear my brothers and sisters, for the teachings of TheWay has been restored so that you might be able to overcome the darkness, and enter the Kingdom of Light within you (Luke 17:20-21).

The Brother Of Yeshua/Jesus: 2000 years ago I lived as Jacob who many all James, and I was known as the Brother of Yeshua and the first leader of the New Covenant movement of TheWay which is today known as Christianity.  I was sent back into the world to restore the teachings of my brother Yeshua to their original spiritual essence, and to guide you in TheWay that is "narrow" so you will be able to open the "strait gate" within you and enter the Kingdom that Yeshua declared must be attained through the second birth.  
 

The Ebionite HomePage: If you call yourself a Christian, Jew, Messianic believer, Evyonim, Nazarene or Muslim, then it is imperative that you learn of the Ebionites who are True Spiritual Israel -- They are the Poor Ones to the ways and thinking of this world -- The Ebionites were the Israelites of the Nazirene Vow They are/were the Genuine Disciples of Yeshua/Jesus who are in the world and not of it!   
 

The Nazirene HomePage: The original spiritual teachings of Yeshua/Jesus as practiced by the people of The Way who where known historically as the Essenes, Ebionites, and Nazirenes. The teachings of The Way are Spiritual -- and provide a means to open the "strait gate" into the Kingdom while still physically alive in the body/vessel.  
 

The Master Index:  The Index of Nazirene Ebionite web sites and the Original Teachings of TheWay   
 

The Ten Words:  That restores the teachings of Jesus and TheWay to their original spiritual environment.     
 

The Key Of Knowledge: When Jesus condemned the leaders of the Jews as blind guides, it was because they threw away the Key Of Knowledge.   In the fourth century of our Common Era, the Church of Rome in like manner threw away the Key Of Knowledge -- causing the Christian world to become lost and wandering in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of Mind and Being.      
 

The Light Of Yeshua -- The Messianic Nazirene Disciple of TheWay: While many teach that believers are saved by faith, the journey of the disciple of Yeshua is one of absolute dedication to The Way. The disciple who becomes a brother to Yeshua must live as he lived, and become a Nazirene who is consecrated and wholly set apart as they walk the Narrow Way, enter into the Kingdom through the Strait Gate, and learn directly from the L-rd -- the One Rabbi and Teacher of the Mysteries of G-d.  
 

Divine Strategery: How God Fools Mankind - Keeping Him Ignorant Of The Truth: Strategery has become synonymous with when what is portrayed as simple, simpleminded, or even self-evident, is able to dupe and thwart an opposing force that perceives itself to be either superior, or to suppose they know the answers.   Divine Strategery is how God fools all the religious leaders of this world who think they doctrinally know God -- all the would-be teachers and philosophers of this world who think they Know Truth -- all the Atheists and those who criticize and denounce the existence of God by virtue of their limited perception and understanding -- and all the people in this world who think they understand the purpose of life and the world in which we presently dwell.  As prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, if the people in this life knew the answers, then the learning experience of God's SchoolHouse of this world would not effectively evolve us to become true Brothers and Sisters of our Elder Brother Yeshua/Jesus.  Therefore, in order to insure that each of us is immersed in the necessary learning experience that this life offers, all people are equally fooled into thinking they know, in order for them to be manipulated into embracing a higher agenda that is beyond their ability to even imagine.   Thus, Divine Strategery!!!

 
 
 

The Pre-Existent Soul of Mankind: Jesus taught the reality of the pre-existent soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes. The Church adheres to the doctrine and theology of a Circus Prostitute and a Roman Emperor who maintained absolute control over what Christians were permitted to believe! Christians continue to cling to the theology of this Circus Prostitute today - rejecting the teachings of Jesus, while adhering to the doctrines of Pagan Rome. The mass confusion of an uncountable number of sects today, is the direct result of the void which was brought about when this foundational concept was removed from both the Bible, as well as Christian doctrine. The doctrinal quagmire which was brought about with the removal of this foundational teaching, obstructs Christians growth and maturity beyond the entry-level simple faith. Because they adhere to the corrupted doctrines of men, modern Christians can't inherit the Biblical Promise of entering the Kingdom and Life.

 
 

Being Of Light: Who are we?  What are we? From where have we come?  What is our destiny?  To the demise of those who read these words, only a handful of people today can answer these all-important crucial questions correctly! The rest dwell under the cloud of unknowing -- and if you think you are the person whose reflection you see in the mirror, then you are a stranger to your true self and have made yourself part of the illusion of this world. With great wisdom Yeshua/Jesus is quoted in The Books of the Savior, also known as Pistis Sophia (Faith-Wisdom): "Do not cease seeking day or night, and do not let yourselves relax until you have found all the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light, which will purify you and make you into Pure Light and lead you into the Kingdom of Light."  
 

Gospel of the Nazirenes -- Gospel Of Light: What did the Gospels look like before being edited and re-written by the Church of Rome? What were the original beliefs of the first followers of Yeshua? You will be astonished when you read a surviving text of The Gospel of the Nazirenes which was hidden away from the corrupters of the Roman Church. Are you ready for a truly enlightening experience?  
 

The Gate Of Eden: Why were the Nazirene/Ebionites vegetarian?  Why did they live in accordance with the precepts of the Torah/Law?  Why did they live separate and apart from both Jews and Christians?  The answer is very simple: The Gate of Eden is within us, and if we fail to enter therein while we are still physically alive in the body, we will have failed in our opportunity to enter into Life.  And while it can be countered that we are saved by our belief in Messiah/Christ, faith, or the blood of the lamb, the truth is that if we were truly faithful disciples of TheWay, that we would experience the opening of the inner door and the Kingdom coming within us.  The GateOfEden article explores all aspects of the need to pick up one's own cross and follow the narrow path that leads to the inner gate to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.  
       

 

 

Should Christians Embrace Genuine Spiritual Marriage? Civil Union vs Marriage

 

 

Can man redefine Spiritual Sacraments Ordained by God?  And when the Court crosses over the line of Separation of Church and State and attempts to redefine a Spiritual Sacrament and using secular authority to impose their will upon the Congregation of Believers, is this not a modern example of where Peter stated: But Peter and the apostles answered, "We must obey God rather than men" (Acts 5:29).   

For those who believe that Marriage is a Spiritual Sacrament and Covenant that can't be redefined by man, the recent ruling of the Supreme Court has tested the faithfulness to your beliefs.   If it is true that Marriage is a Spiritual Sacrament and Covenant between God, a man and his wife, then the government has betrayed your trust.  
  In the words of Jesus: "But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and join to his wife; And they two shall be one flesh: so then they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no one separate" (Mark 10:6-9).  A marriage, therefore, is that sacrament and holy consecrated union that make the man and woman, "one flesh".   And that few Christians today even understand the spiritual potential of Marriage, is explored in the article The Divine Role Of Woman.

Throughout my writings on the Sacrament of the Divine Marriage, I have long maintained that neither a secular or religious authority has the power to institute a Genuine Marriage that is Ordained by God -- that marriages are determined by the content and faithfulness of the heart and mind -- without which, no Real Marriage can be instituted.   Further, not only does the Sacrament of Marriage have requirements to be entered into, but must be maintained in accord with Spiritual Standards.   In view of the fact that the Court has moved to redefine the Sacrament of Marriage, what they have accomplished is nothing more than state licensed co-habitation and sex.   And this does not in any manner constitute a marriage in the Eyes of God.

We have all seen the videos where both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have pledged their belief in marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman.   It has been asserted that in the case of Barack Obama, he lied to get elected -- and in the words of the late William Safire, Hillary Clinton is a "congenital liar".    Clinton will be shocked when it is revealed to her when she passes from this life, that her and Bill Clinton are not even married in the Eyes of God.   As a Sacred Covenant, if the terms of that Covenant are not maintained in purity of thought and body, then the Covenant itself is nullified and void. 

From the perspective that secular authority which does not even possess the power to institute a True Marriage, and has moved to redefine a Spiritual Sacrament that they have no business of setting the terms and conditions of, the people of the states should immediately move to negate the power of secular authority to institute what they cannot institute -- and thereby enacting the necessary laws and statutes to deny secular authority the right to use the term marriage -- replacing it instead with the term "civil union".   The terms of marriage must be taken away from civil authorities, and returned solely to the domain of religion.   Therefore, all such unions ordained by the state and secular authorities, must be labeled "civil unions" -- with all secular authorities banned from even using the term marriage.

All people should have equal Constitutional Rights and Protections -- and therefore if a same-sex couple desire to enter into a legal union ordained by the state, this union should properly be named a "civil union".  Same-sex couples are just the beginning, and this will in the future again be redefined to cover polygamy, polyandry, and eventually the union of beast and man.    In Islam, a man can have -- and are encouraged to have -- as many as four (4) wives, plus concubines.   And it is only a matter of time before the Court moves to affirm the right of the Muslim to practice their religion.   Therefore, in view of the fact that the authorities of the state do not have the (spiritual) power to make the two (man and woman) "one flesh", they must be denied the use of that word -- which means that all state sanctified unions would be defined as "civil unions".   If the perspective partners are members of a religious group that promotes the sanctity and fidelity of entering into the Sacrament and Covenant of Marriage, then it would be within the domain of the religious group to issue a Marriage Certificate (see previous articles on Marriage at LINK).    In view of the fact that the the Constitution requires separation of church and state -- and the state does not have the power to either redefine or initiate the Spiritual Sacrament of Marriage -- the People must themselves move to deny the authorities of the state even the use of the term Marriage -- replacing it with the more proper term, civil union. 

The scriptures are allegorical -- and when the spiritual meaning of the Genesis account of Creation is understood, what is revealed is the Forces and Laws of Consciousness that is operating within the mind of mankind.  In the article on The Tree Of Life And The Divine Marriage, it is demonstrated that the fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Good and Evil) is the divided thoughts and impressions of man and woman.   And the need to merge the male and female impressions in a higher Morphic Field which creates a spiritual atmosphere and environment for the mind and being to evolve and spiritually mature, is presented to the seeker in the Gospel of Thomas saying:
They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."   Unless this teaching that was removed from the Gospels used by Christians today is fulfilled with respect to the the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Life through the merging of the male and female columns of the Tree of Duality within the seeker, then it will remain impossible to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom.   And those people who reject same-sex unions, innately know this to be true.

From the perspective of a civil union, people have the absolute right to enter into any union of their choosing -- and no one has the right to force them to do differently.   Ultimately, our Constitution provides each man and woman the right to live in accord with any philosophy or mindset of their choosing -- to the degree that they have the right to squander away their opportunity of life.   Sex, and sexual expression, is not a sin, so long as it is not coerced or forced upon another individual.   But when used properly within the construct and environment of The Tree Of Life And The Divine Marriage, sexual interaction between the opposite polarities of male and female is the catalyst that initiates higher development of mind and being on the "narrow way" of Enlightenment and Anointing.     And no secular authority has the power to initiate and ordain a True Spiritual Marriage.   Secular authorities are limited to licensing sex and cohabitation only -- and because of this fact, the unions they license should be righly  limited to civil-unions.
