Introduction

 

After eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), the statement was made in the allegorical account of Genesis: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23).   Thus, the promise is that those who eat the fruit of the Tree of Life, will live forever.  That the Tree of Life is something that all of mankind can gain entrance to, and eat the fruit thereof, is demonstrated in the statement in the Revelation: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).

The scriptures were written by mystics (see An Inconvenient Truth) who composed their sacred writings to both preserve a body of spiritual knowledge which was of primary importance to sincere seekers in search of Higher Truth.  Other than the most elementary of instruction, the scriptures have virtually no value as historical accounts -- and were never intended to be used in the manner that most modern day Jews and Christians interpret and used them today.  The article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, portrays an ultra-important aspect of the Original Gospel teachings that is totally absent from the dogma of the modern Church 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”  To even suggest that one of the primary purposes of the Gospel teachings was to bring about the deepening, heightening and enlargement of human consciousness would be totally rejected by the modern faith-based believer.  Why?   Very simply, because The Original Gospel Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Modern Church Dogma.    

It is easily proven that the whole of the New Testament was corrupted (see BibleCorruption.com ), and the most important spiritual teachings and concepts were either edited or totally removed from the Gospels.   Those outside of the original Ebionite/Nazirene core of disciples and followers of Jesus, were quick to corrupt all the copies of the scriptures that were given to them.   And this fact is confirmed to us  by Dr. F. H. Scrivener where he writes that: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest". Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within 100 years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts (F.H.Scrivener, Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament).    Dean Burgon quotes Gaius (AD175-200) who speaks of the source of corruptions that survive in the early papyri: "The Divine Scriptures these heretics have audaciously corrupted. Laying violent hands upon them, under pretense of correcting them." (Burgon, The Revision Revised, p. 323).   Eusebius (Eccleastical History), citing the second century Church Father Clement of Alexandria: "The worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected originated within one hundred years after it was composed."   In the words of Colwell (What is the Best New Testament Text?, p.119)  "The first two centuries witnessed the creations of the large number of variations known to scholars today.  In the manuscripts of the New Testament most variations, I believe, were made deliberately."   G.D. Kilpatrick (Atticism and the Text of the Greek New Testament, pp 125-131):  "Deliberate changes in all text types appear to antedate A.D. 200..as distinct from errors... all categories of deliberate alteration...  are present in both groups. Tatian is the last author of make deliberate changes. The vast majority of deliberate changes were older then A.D. 200.  They came into being in the period A.D. 50-200."  The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" With regard to the condition of the Bible we presently use: The surviving Greek texts of the book of Acts are so radically different from each other, that it has been suggested that perhaps there were multiple versions written. In his book The Text of the New Testament, Dr. Vincent Taylor writes that "The manuscripts of the New Testament preserve traces of two kinds of dogmatic alterations: those which involve the elimination or alteration of what was regarded as doctrinally unacceptable or inconvenient, and those which introduce into the Scriptures proof for a favorite theological tenet or practice".

Quoting from the opening statement of The True (Unknown) Nature And Reality Of The Scriptures: If you had an original copy of the Gospels, you could use them as a catalyst to achieve an Enlightened and Anointed State of Mind -- prevailing over self, mentally and spiritually evolving to your full potential, and overcoming the division between you and your Heavenly Father. If you had an original copy of the Gospels and used them as the authors intended them to be used, at this moment as the prodigal son/daughter, you could have been Restored to the Edenic Kingdom -- and having overcome even death, you would dwell with your elder brother Jesus -- who, as the first of the prodigal sons to fulfill the Royal Law within himself, completed the Journey in TheWay before you.

In their original form and format, the Gospels were an allegorical catalyst that when properly used as the Key of Knowledge, has the capacity to bring about the deepening, heightening and enlargement of human consciousness beyond what Paul portrayed as the "animal-soul" level of organic human consciousness which is incapable of comprehending man's higher Soul-Reality, the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, or the Mysteries of God.   One of the primary and key statements in Gospel teachings is the reality personified in the words: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).   And since the vast majority of mankind have no understanding of Wholeness as presented in these words, this article will explore both the causes of Un-Wholeness that personifies the vast majority of mankind, and how man must overcome and prevail over this inherent human condition that causes spiritual death. 

To insure this body of spiritual knowledge was protected so it could be utilized by those who were the most sincere seekers, they therefore understood the importance of cloaking it in a manner that the carnal forces of this world would not recognize.   These same enlightened mystics also understood that the division and separation of what is allegorically portrayed as Adam and Eve, is representative of the divided condition of male and female within all of mankind and these outer realms of Creation.   This condition of division and separation is expressed in the Gospel of Philip in the words:  “When Eve was still with Adam, death did not exist. When she was separated from him, death came into being. If he enters again and attains his former self, death will be no more”.   Further, these same mystics who authored the scriptures understood that so long as man continues to exist in this divided state of male and female, it would remain impossible for him to comprehend his own higher Soul and spiritual reality (see The Fatal Error Of The Church).   Thus, when rightly understood, it is this divided condition across the gender divide of man and woman, that immerses mankind under an umbrella of self-ignorance -- a suppressed mental condition that Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   Which meant that before a person could even begin to comprehend this higher spiritual knowledge that is the birth-right of mankind as the divine offspring of Creator-God, he has to first escape the conditions that inhibit his development.  

Mankind is portrayed in the Gospels as the lost prodigal son (see Prodigal Son) who has fallen under the control of the Citizen of this physical world -- aka, the Far Country.   Which means that you -- the reader -- are the lost prodigal son of your Heavenly Father.   That while in your present condition of limited perception and remembrance -- wherein, you presently dwell in what the Gospels portray as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- you don't remember your Soul's more distant past prior to being born into your present cycle of birth and life -- further lacking the knowledge of your True-Self which the ancients portrayed in the adage: Know Thyself.   A divided and suppressed mental reality that Jesus made reference to in the Gospel of Thomas: "(3) Jesus said ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty"

The enlightened mystics understood that a seeker had to first begin to overcome their divided condition of mind -- and with the reuniting of what is portrayed as Adam and Eve within him, he had to begin the process of mentally and spiritually becoming fruitful and multiplying his own reality of mind and being through the nourishment of the fruit of the Tree of Life.   And it is the fruit of the Tree of Life that would enable the seeker to prevail over the forces that kept him a prisoner in this, the Far Country -- enabling him to return to his Source of Being in the Kingdom of his Heavenly Father which he, of his own accord, had originally abandoned (see http://GateOfEden.com ).   And it is essential to be cognizant of the fact that in accord with the parable taught by Jesus, mankind as the lost prodigal son at one time dwelt in the Kingdom with his heavenly Father which he (man) left on his own accord, before journeying into this, the Far Country -- bringing upon himself a condition of mind with respect to what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being.    

Throughout the history of mankind, what can be called religion has always been the tool of charlatan priests/clergy and despotic rulers to exert and maintain control over the lives of the masses of people.   By provoking fear in the people and the threat of eternal damnation in hell, the priests/clergy and despotic rulers were able to maintain almost absolute control over the people.   This was true when the scriptures were originally written.   Just as it remains true even today.   It is easily demonstrated that the scriptures were corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).   Why were the scriptures corrupted?   In order to make them support the carnal and political agenda of the ruling classes.   That the ruling class of priests and secular authorities always corrupt the sacred writings, is a reality the authors of the scriptures fully understood -- and they therefore composed their sacred writings which we call scriptures in an allegorical format to preserve the true inner spiritual meaning from corruption.  

This immutable fact of corruption, in conjunction with the human reality that so long as man remained in his divided and undeveloped condition of mind, that it would remain impossible for man to comprehend his own true reality as manifest in his higher Soul and spiritual nature which he remained ignorant of so long as he continued to dwell in the "outer darkness" that Jesus warned about.  Thus, the primary problem which confronted the authors of the scriptures is seen in the fact that it would remain impossible for them to convey to others who had not overcome their own divided condition of mind, the body of sacred knowledge they would need to bring about their own transformation and subsequent birth that was and is necessary to escape the ignorance of this world.   So the authors of the scriptures created their sacred writings and preserved their body of esoteric knowledge within the cloak of historical allegory -- and when rightly understood, everything between the Books of Genesis to The Revelation is an allegorical portrayal of how to overcome man's divided nature, and be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e., "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).   And while the scriptures on the surface may appear to be a series of historical accounts, this is merely the cloak under which the body of esoteric knowledge has been preserved, and can only be revealed to those who are sincere in their quest to escape being a prisoner in this, the Far Country.  Therefore, the true meaning of the sacred writings can only be comprehended by sincere seekers who are willing to "...wash their robes" and have made the necessary changes within him/her selves to acquire the "eyes to see, and the ears to hear" what only the Spirit can reveal to the mind of the seeker.     

In the Gospels, the majority of people are portrayed as being "without" -- i.e., a term used to represent those who continue to dwell in the "outer darkness" -- and as such, their undeveloped condition of mind causes them to be only capable of being taught in the enigma of parables.   While those who have embraced the process of transformation were portrayed as being In The House (see In The House).   The Gospel accounts state that Jesus was only able to speak plainly to the multitude of hearers in the enigma of parables -- and it is therefore imperative that we recognize that Jesus did not, and could not, speak and teach with clarity of words and concepts 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 "outside" the House.    The term "open and unloose" the mind, was also used in the Gospel as the path to entering the Inner Kingdom wherein the prodigal son was portrayed as escaping from the Far Country, and commencing his (inner) return to the Kingdom of the Father.   Which means that the above Gospel statement can be clarified to read: “Unto you [the disciples in the House] it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without [in the outer darkness of mind and being], all these 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 KJV).   The authors of the scriptures fully understood the difference between the those who remain prisoners in the "outer darkness" of the Far country, and those who travail in TheWay and are able to enter In The House.   

There are many spiritual levels of believers and adherents within the Christian Domain.   The Gospel teachings of Jesus which were originally known as the teachings of TheWay (The Way), have within itself all levels from entry-level to a higher and mature expression of spirituality.   And while the entry-level is based upon faith and belief, the higher levels of spiritual maturity embody a Wholistic mindset and lifestyle necessary to transform the body-mind into a Living Temple that enables the Spiritual Christian to fully embrace the Pattern of the Christ, by symbolically picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay in Imitation of the historical man Jesus.   And this is why Paul portrayed the historical man Jesus as the first of the prodigal sons to achieve the necessary stages of birth to return to the Kingdom -- i.e., "...in order that he (Jesus) might be the firstborn among many brothers" (Rom 8:29).   Wherein Jesus said of his disciples when he portrayed them as his brothers: "...but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God’” (John 20:17).   Thus, while the entry-level Christian has few requirements other than faith and belief, the more Advanced Spiritual Christian has many requirements that enables him/her to enter  In The House, and fulfill the adage to be in the world and not of it.  

The Original teachings of Jesus and TheWay was a system of Spiritual Advancement that brought about Wholeness and Completion.   While very little is expected of the entry-level faith-based believer, as the Christian advances, and greater Knowledge and Spirituality is attained and spiritually revealed to them, these more Mature Christians are required to live in accord with the Direct Revelation that has been bestowed upon them.   As stated in the Gospels: “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).   Thus, with Spiritual Maturity and the Acquisition of Direct Knowledge from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet, having received the greater spiritual wisdom and knowledge carries with it the requirement to live in strict accord with that level of Divine Manna (Spiritual Knowledge) that has been received -- 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”.  

This article is a Spiritual Abstract that is in summary -- and as such, is dependent upon the hyperlinked articles upon which it is built.  Mature Spiritual Christians are neither blind believers, nor are they ignorant of man's higher Soul and spiritual reality.   The very word Christian portrays one who has attained a spiritually mature condition of mind, and is Anointed (Messiah/Christ) and Enlightened.   As stated in the article The Cross And The Seat Belt under the subheading, Religion As A System Of Education - The Two Ways, if the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay are properly embraced, then these teachings themselves are designed to bring about a Knowing and Enlightened Condition within the mind and life of the seeker/disciple.

The Process of Birth Within The Tree Of Life

 

 

I am presenting the following because of the misconceptions of many in the New Age, but also as an explanation to the modern Christians who have virtually no understanding of the nature of the original teachings of Jesus that have been suppressed by the Church.   And this is especially true with respect to the question of why the Bible rejects the modern issue of homosexual marriage?  Why Jesus portrayed adultery as sin?   And perhaps just as important is the issue as to whether Catholic priests should have the right to marry?  In the below I set numerous links where important subjects and human realities are explored in great depth.   These links are necessary, because they permit me to write in summary.   Which means that to truly understand the transformative power of the Divine Marriage as a catalyst to become nourished by the life-giving fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, it is imperative to understand the foundational environment in which man's access to the Tree of Life is obtained.  

With respect to attaining Oneness with first our True Self, and ultimately the Indwelling Logos: If what you are asking was easy -- and the process could be easily conveyed -- then the biblical authors would have written it down literally, so that seekers would know the process.   But this is not at all the case -- as demonstrated at http://TheThreeLies.com#mystery .   And this to the degree that Paul stated to the same people who he had himself taught the elementary principles of the Gospel which he called the "testimony of Christ" -- that if he had spoken to them with any degree of spiritual maturity and higher spiritual wisdom, that they would reject what he would state as utter "foolishness"!   And this inability for man in his organic condition of mind to perceive and comprehend his own higher Soul and spiritual reality, is true across the spectrum of humanity -- and is as valid today, as when those words were written 2000 years ago.   Why?   Because what is required is self-knowledge -- as stated in the Gospel of Thomas"...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   Self-Knowledge includes, but is not limited to, (1) an understanding of what we portray as the Cosmology of Mind and Being (see http://SoulSelf.org ); (2) an understanding of the Laws and Forces of Mind upon which man's consciousness is manifest; (3) including a thorough understanding of one's own relationship to their higher Soul-Self; (4) an understanding of the personality that you are in relation to the personalities that your Soul-Self has lived in what is often portrayed as the previous and future lives of your higher Soul-Self; (5) an understanding of your higher Soul-Self's relationship to Creator-God; (6) your Soul's relationship to all other Souls that dwell within the Mind of God; (7) and the dynamics of the relationship and reality of the male/female paradoxical opposites of both Creation and the Divine Pattern, as well as the dynamics of the holographic pattern as expressed within your own mind and being.   

The process is not a merging with one's higher self -- we don't merge with our higher Soul-Self that is a Being Of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) which we are an embryonic projection of -- and exists in an inner reality of mind and being -- but as Jesus stated to Nicodemus, you must bring about the next stage of birth -- i.e., Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3).   But what exactly was Jesus making reference to?    Is the birth process that of repeating words in what is commonly portrayed as the Sinners Prayer?    In the same way that physical birth requires the merging and development of male and female essence in the womb, the next stage of birth requires the merging of the male and female paradoxical opposite spheres of mind within you -- as stated in the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 (see Saying 22): 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."   In the same way that an embryo which is the merging of male and female essence, must evolve through the stages of embryo, fetus, infant and eventually to maturity, the third-force balance of the male/female duality within your own mind must evolve to maturity.   One of the problems is that man is a complex being -- with the Tree of Life being a representation and pattern of your own mind.   Which means that the pattern of your own mind is the manifestation of four (4) trinities -- comprised of four (4) male/female paradoxical opposites which comprise the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil) -- with the essence of the Tree of Life being the four third-force balance spheres where the duality of the opposites must be brought together and evolved to maturity.  The process of birth requires Wholeness -- a term not understood that is used throughout the Gospels.   In the same way that the Trinity is portrayed as Mother/Father God and the Third-Force balance/offspring portrayed as the Logos, all of Creation is a manifestation of the Divine Pattern that is holographically imprinted into every aspect of Creation.  Wholeness, from the perspective of man that brings about the next stage of birth -- thereby permitting the person we are in this world to be At-One with our higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- is achieved when the third-force balance of the four trinities within our own mind and being have achieved a condition of fullness -- and this fullness enables the next stage of birth to be brought about -- a condition of fullness and wholeness which prompted the disciples to make reference to themselves as children.  In the Gospel of Thomas (GofT) saying 22 this reality is portrayed in the question: They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"   With respect to these four trinities and their respective third-force balance-spheres that comprise the Essence of the Tree of Life, they can be portrayed as the perfect balance of what is often spoken of as Earth, Water, Fire and Air -- which when in the condition of evolved balance and wholeness, is portrayed as the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed.  And the references to receiving the Kingdom as a child in the four Gospels, is a corruption of this reality where you must evolve the third-force balance within the four trinities of your own mind, and achieve the next stage of birth -- which birth we often portray as Soul-birth -- in that, this next stage of birth enables you to become At-One with your higher Soul-Self which is your True Self that you are an expression of.   After all, as stated that a House Divided cannot stand.   After achieving the next stage of birth which we portray as Soul-Birth, there are still two additional stages of birth which can be portrayed as Spiritual-Birth, and the final stage of birth which is allegorically portrayed in the crucifixion where one is At-One with God in the Totality of their Being -- thus, reuniting the divided realities of Adam and Eve on all levels within you, permitting a return to what is portrayed as the Garden of Eden (see http://GateOfEden.com ).   Quoting from The Pattern Of Mind And Being:

After eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), the statement was made in the allegorical account of Genesis: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23).   Thus, the objective of life is to become nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e., "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).   And respecting the Tree of Life it is written: "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   With the final statement pertaining to the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Life in order to gain entrance to what is often portrayed as Spiritual Jerusalem in the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).  

Only by eating the fruit of the Tree of Life -- being nourished by the Impressions thereof -- can the next stage of Soul-birth be brought about, and only then can man achieve the necessary Wholeness to become At-One with his higher Soul-Self -- and ultimately, the Indwelling Logos.   And only by travailing in TheWay and permitting these subsequent stages of birth to be brought about within your own mind and being, can the journey of the Soul be fulfilled and the seeker/disciple enter the Kingdom that Jesus taught is within us (see Luke 17:20-21).

One of the only reasons that I can even present the process of achieving the next stage of Soul-birth that the biblical authors could not in the past, is because of (1) modern web-technology that permits me to set hyperlinks into a large array of subjects that would be too complex to place in a standard document or book that has been written from a linear perspective; and (2) the fact that the people I am writing for are all fairly educated and can read with a high degree of reason -- whereas in the past, only the very elite were educated and could read.   This enables me to write and convey in summary, and set links to those areas within the supporting documents that are relevant to what I am attempting to convey.   In the Law of Octaves which was the mainstay of the wisdom of both Pythagoras and Gurdjieff, reference is made to the necessary foods that act as a catalyst at the point where the sequence twists.   Gurdjieff correctly portrayed the final food in the last stage of the octave as Impressions -- making note that few people would even be able to fathom what the nature of this food is.   In my Intro to the Law of Octaves (see http://lawofoctaves.nazirene.org/#Intro ), there is a pictorial of an Ennegram which is seen on the right, which presents the formation of food within the body and mind of man.   And these crucial Impressions are presented throughout what follows the subheading The Esoteric Feminine Mystique at http://Soulself.org#EsotericFeminineMystique .   Part of my presentation in London in The Conference On Consciousness And Human Evolution on the subject to Know Thyself, I presented important information on the Impressions generated by men and women as presented in the subheading The Divine Pattern Of Mind (see http://knowthyself.nazirene.org/#DivinePatternOfMind ).   Wherein, what is portrayed as the fruit of the Tree of Duality, is in fact the Thoughts and Impressions of the divided spheres of the male/female mind.   While the whole of the previous subheading is extremely important to understand, let me focus on one segment within the context of what is presented (quoting):  

In the diagram on the left, we see the aura, or ætheric field, that encompasses both the man and woman individually, as well as forming the morphic field that has the power to create a unique and individualized atmosphere which immerses the husband and wife in their own personalized threefold environment (physical, mental and spiritual), that has the capacity to manifest and join the two halves in Oneness.   When the scriptures speak of the man and woman becoming "one flesh", it is the Morphic Field that is created in a Spiritual Union/Marriage that has immersed the man and woman into a Common Atmosphere -- insulating them from the outer world, and belonging solely to them.   In the diagram on the right we see a pictorial representation of the merger of the bio-energy that when joined, is no longer lost into nature -- but rather, is channeled within the dynamics of the union.    In the subheading entitled The Merger Of Opposites Into One, I demonstrate where the impressions generated by an evolving man and woman are in fact the food portrayed by Gurdjieff who built upon the foundation of Pythagoras and the esoteric Gospel teachings, to demonstrate that it is the merger of the opposite polarity male/female impressions that brings about the expansion of mind and being within the morphic field of the seeker/disciple (see Morphic Field). 

While man and woman enter this realm which is a Mental-Womb (see Mental Womb http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#MentalWomb ) as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm, it is the joining together in a Divine Marriage and Union that evolves the male/female opposites into a Cosmic Embryo.  It is then the physical, mental and spiritual interaction of the male/female opposites -- being individually nourished by the Impressions Generated -- that evolves both the husband and wife beyond organic limitations, which initiate the necessary Transformation that leads to achieving the next stage of Soul-Birth.    

  Women polarized positive at breasts: In the same way that men and women are polarized opposite polarities, their inherent gender weaknesses, needs and desires are also opposite.    Men are polarized positive at the genitals -- which empowers the lower animal nature (see Organic Man Controlled By His Lower Animal Nature) -- and is often totally controlled and consumed by his need to fulfill the appetites of his lower nature.  What this means is that while men are easily controlled by the often unmanageable flow of vital (sexual) life-force that flows from their genital regions, women, on the other hand, are polarized opposite in the genitals, and thus are able to exert a greater amount of control with respect to their sexuality.  On the other hand, women's breasts which, unlike the animal kingdom are perpetually enlarged because her body serves a higher purpose than just providing nourishment for infants, is polarized positive in this area of mind. This positive polarization is often seen as being over emotional, sensitive, and much more feeling than her male counterpart who perceives life through the vision of linear mathematical logic. Thus, the male is polarized negative at that level of mind that corresponds to the breast, in order to receive this higher and more refined vital life-force back from his wife -- thereby creating a circle between them that initiates mental/spiritual development and the birth of the child of Truth within the two that are One.
Look around you at the world and you will observe the male's absolute fixation on women's breasts.  Why?  Not because of their desire to nurse as some of our psychologists have reasoned -- but rather, because they possess an absolute need for the vital life-force energy from that region of mind where women are polarized positive.  The problem is that because they fail to comprehend the Divine Pattern, and do not realize that they can only receive this vital life-force from a Wife in a Genuine Marriage -- and most women whose thinking and lifestyle have been molded by our culture and modern society are (sexually) polluted and cannot provide the man the mental/spiritual nourishment that they (men) crave (see Sexual Immorality  http://SoulSelf.org#SexualImmorality ), they continually look to other women in search of what they can only receive from just one who is their genuine wife.

The problem is twofold -- i.e., neither the men nor the women are able to fulfill the biological, mental and spiritual needs of their respective spouse/partner, so they look to others instead of developing the depth of the relationship between themselves.  Men are constantly looking at other women, and are therefore expelling their vital life-force -- i.e., "...But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matt 5:28 NIV).   Their female partners dress provocatively so as to be seen as sexual objects -- flirt with other men so they can feel the energy within them stir and move their positively charged (sexual) centers -- and work outside the home in their endeavor to be with others, acquire materialistic things, and maintain a state of independence from their spouses. While this may be a marriage in the eyes of this world or the church, it is not genuine in the spiritual meaning of the marriage relationship where the two become One Flesh!

Carnal man is literally staving for the higher reality and vital-life force that he craves.  Woman feels incomplete -- as if she is deprived of sex and fulfillment -- because she cannot raise up and release the energy within herself. The problem is not only her own inability to raise up this energy passed on to her by males, but there are no males who are able to receive it from her.  She therefore feels unsatisfied, discontent, and ungratified in her life.  Some women feel that they will achieve the satisfaction they desire by going out to work -- being independent -- and making their way in the business world.  But this is not the solution.  The problem is that she is incomplete -- and even when she attempts to enter into a relationship with a man, in time her incompleteness will return.  She craves to express herself -- to strive for higher meaning -- to feel complete -- but because of her inability to enter into a Genuine Marriage where she can raise herself up to new spiritual heights, she is destined to remain discontent and incomplete.

The man, on the other hand, unknowingly crave what only a genuine wife can provide to him.  Being polarized negative at that part of the mind associated with the chest, he feels a great void in his life that he falsely interprets as a lack of sex.  He unconsciously is drawn to women's breast, because that is the source of bio-energy he desires and craves.   He therefore seeks out many women in search of what he can receive from only one.  He often is addicted to pornography and nudity -- intoxicated with the naked female form, and especially the breasts -- ever searching for what he cannot have and possess -- bound to the elemental things of this world through the unquenchable appetite of his senses.  @@@ objectified

   The Trinity - Divine Pattern - Linear vs Intuitive Development Of The Mind: We must then pose the question: Before we can even begin to understand the relationship of both man and woman -- as personified in the Linear and Intuitive Spheres of Mind of the Tree of Life/Duality, it is essential to understand the Divine Pattern of Mind -- often portrayed in the Doctrine of the Trinity.  Therefore we must also understand that there is a Divine Pattern to Creation -- and this Divine Pattern is holographically replicated into every level of Creation.  Man and woman is the embodiment of the Divine Pattern -- and therefore they are the embodiment of the Trinity -- which is manifest in the paradoxical opposite Linear and Intuitive spheres of mind.  This fact of reality as personified in the concept of a holographic pattern has been expressed in many sayings and concepts of man's reality -- i.e., as above, so below -- what is true of the Macrocosm, is true of the microcosm -- which can also be expressed in the words of Genesis that mankind was created in the image of God.  "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." (Gen 1:27).   The Logos denotes the Mind of God -- but Mind can only exist as the balance point between the Positive and Negative opposite polarities of mind.   If the Male and Female polarities did not exist in the Reality of Creator-God, then Consciousness could not exist in the Mind (Logos) of God. 

An EEG is a means to test electrical activity in the brain.  An EKG measures the electrical activity in the heart.  This electrical activity is a means of testing what can be portrayed as bio-energy or vital life-force upon which consciousness is manifest.  Without this presence of bio-energy which is manifest in the interaction of positive/male and negative/female opposite polarities, Consciousness or Mind cannot exist.  And this is true of both man and Creator-God.  Therefore, electrical activity is the direct result of the flow and interaction of the Positive and Negative polarities.  No energy can exist or flow, without the positive and negative polarities.  The power of the one polarity (positive/male, negative/female), is always limited by the power of the opposite polarity.  If one leg of a circuit (positive/male negative/female) is unable to support the demands of the circuit, then the limitation of the diminished leg of the circuit inhibits the whole circuit.  Thus, in the case of man and woman, if either is inhibited from developing, then their opposite cannot develop beyond that point same point.  Moreover, the development of both the positive/male and negative/female must evolve together in union with each other.  Because of their polarity opposites, the male can easily overpower the female in this world -- and iIf the woman is constrained and is unable to develop her natural (Intuitive/Feminine) abilities, then her male partner will be equally inhibited from developing his own (Linear/Masculine) abilities.  What this means is that if Equality of Male and Female is infringed or limited in any way, then so too is Consciousness.  If a man inhibits the development of woman, then it is his own development that is equally inhibited.  And the two polarities are intimately connected, any movement in one polarity, initiates a like movement in the opposite polarity.  The Left hemisphere of the brain controls the right side of the body, and the right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body.  If only one polarity of mind is developed at the expense of the opposite polarity (Linear vs Intuitive), then the whole of the mind is inhibited from developing.  Therefore, if a woman is artificially programmed to think in a male/linear framework of mind, then her Feminine/Intuitive natural abilities are atrophied, and cannot develop beyond a very superficial level.   As a man or woman, the positive and negative energy/voltage flow originates with our Higher Soul-Self which is the Source of our Mind and Being.   In the case of the Logos -- i.e., the Mind of God -- the Power is the balance between the Positive polarity of Father-God, and the Negative polarity of Mother-God. 

The Soul or True-Self of man is a Being of Light (see SoulSelf.org ) -- and while the Soul of each person is the balance of male and female opposites -- because the opposite polarities (positive/negative) are contained within the Soul, the Soul exists in its natural state as a Being of Light (see BeingOfLight.com ).   But this is not the case in this world of duality where there is a division and separation of male and female.  Why is there a separation of male and female in this realm?   There is nothing but Mind and Consciousness -- and all Consciousness is the Expression of the two polarities of positive/male and negative/female.  Our Soul or True-Self cannot evolve and grow, because the Soul exists in a twelve (12) dimensional Realm of Souls where the male/female polarities are self-contained -- existing in a state of oneness -- manifesting the Soul as a Being of Light.  In order to evolve and grow, the male/female polarities must be able to interact -- and therefore, develop through the experiences of this interaction of opposites.  This realm which can be portrayed as God's Divine School House, is a three (3) dimensional realm where the opposite polarities of male and female are separated -- and while each possesses a consciousness related to their gender, the fruit of their interaction is manifest in the third-force balance of higher mind and consciousness that is manifest in what has been portrayed as a morphic field (see Process of Birth within the Tree of Life and Morphic Field) that creates an atmosphere which immerses the opposites into what has been portrayed as "one flesh".   Thus, while in the physical the two polarities of male and female will appear to be separate, their unity is manifest in an unseen morphic field that manifests and immerses the two polarities in a atmosphere of Higher Mind.

The Evolution of the Soul is dependent upon the balanced development of its opposites -- the male and female opposite outer columns of the Tree of Life which when acting independently is portrayed as the Tree of Duality -- which is necessary to merge the Upper Heavenly and Lower Earthly Kingdoms as patterned in the diagram on the right -- all of which must be manifest in the Center (Love Sphere).   And the substance of Soul-Light is the result of the manifest balance of the twelve spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life.  In order to Evolve and Grow the Light, the Soul must project itself into this three-dimensional realm through soul-generated personalities as either a male or female.  And in the course of these lives, the Soul begins to evolve and develop through the interaction with the opposite gender, in conjunction with the interaction of the Heavenly and Earthly Natures.  Because few men and women understand that their own development of mind and spirit is virtually totally dependent upon their interaction with their opposite gender, soul-evolution is at a snails pace.  Marriages and unions between men and women are usually on the basis of sexual and emotional needs and appetites.  Whereas, the few who actually understand the Cosmology of Mind and Being -- and how their own development is contingent upon the development of, and interaction with their spouse -- are the few who are able to literally supercharge their development.  A man must assist his wife in developing her feminine-intuitive abilities that often seem alien to his own linear-male abilities.  He must create an environment in which his wife not only feels free to provide her intuitive insights, but these insights must be valued and incorporated into her husbands own understanding.  The women must understand that her intuitive insights often do not make linear sense.  Her strength is in her intuitive insights that are not necessarily connected along the linear line of her husbands reasoning.   But all true mental development beyond the organic "animal-soul" level of consciousness, and spiritual growth and development, is all contingent upon the evolutionary steps and levels the man and woman must achieve together.  Those men and women who don't understand the Cosmology of Mind and Being -- and therefore fail to understand their gender-role and strengths -- often must incarnate as men or woman in linear succession, to slowly develop one (male of female) side of the mental-equation at a time.  Often development of the male polarity must be followed by an incarnation as a woman that attempts to balance the previous incarnation.   Sometimes the Law as expressed in the words: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ) -- means that when a man or woman abuses the opposite gender, they are born into that gender to experience their own negative actions -- often portrayed as negative karma.   But those who positively embrace and develop their husband or wife, inherit the positive attributes of their past male/female relationship.       

The three-dimensional condition of male and female duality, division and separation is expressed in the Gospel of Philip in the words:  “When Eve was still with Adam, death did not exist. When she was separated from him, death came into being. If he enters again and attains his former self, death will be no more”.   What is being personified in the foregoing words?  There are two Creation Accounts in the Book of Genesis that has perpetually confused Bible students since they first opened the scriptures (see The Laws of the Two Creation Accounts and how they intimately effect all of mankind ).   In the first allegorical Creation account in Genesis it is stated that mankind was created in the image of God -- "...male and female he created them" -- and yet, the separation of man and woman does not take place until the 2nd chapter of Genesis -- indicating that when mankind was originally created in the image of God, that male and female were At-One, in what must be expressed as AdamEve  (AdamEve = Mankind in the Whole of Self).  Which means that male and female only in their united condition, represents Man or Mankind.  Therefore, not only is the feminine (women) polarity of mankind as much man, as is the male polarity, but neither man or woman in their divided state constitute mankind -- and cannot represent or embody their Soul or True-Self, which is in accord with the Divine Pattern of MaleFemale and the Third-Force Balance of Divine Mind.  Moreover, this also indicates that Creator-God is in fact MotherFather God -- with both polarities of Male and Female are At-One in Wholeness.   Therefore, from the perspective of the Trinity, male and female at their Source exist in an undivided state, and have been expressed in the terms MotherFather God. 

If  "...God created mankind in his own image" in the embodied form of MaleFemale -- i.e., "...in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."  Then in the Divine Mind as portrayed in the Doctrine of the Trinity, what is portrayed in the undivided state is the oneness of Mother/Father God.  Thus, what is therefore true of God, is also true of the Soul, and also true of man -- with the exception that at this lower-level of Creation, male and female appear to be in a divided state -- and it is the divided thoughts and impressions of divided male and female that allegorically represents the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Knowledge of Good and Evil).   Moreover, it is this divided state that has disconnected us from both our Soul and True-Self, and also our Heavenly Father/Mother -- death being a condition of our divided natures as stated in the Gospel of Philip “When Eve was still with Adam, death did not exist. When she was separated from him, death came into being. If he enters again and attains his former self, death will be no more”.   The original state of Oneness is also expressed in the words:  "If he enters again and attains his former self, death will be no more”.  It does not say that if what is personified as Adam and Eve attains their former state -- but rather, if "...he enters again and attains his former self" , meaning that the term mankind is representative of that state and condition where man exists as AdamEve -- with man and woman portrayed as equal halves of One Whole.  And this is in fact exactly what is portrayed in the words of the  Gospel of Thomas saying 22: "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."  When you create that restored condition within yourself where "...you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female", then you have overcome the condition of death brought about by the eating of the Tree of Duality as personified in the words: "...If he enters again and attains his former self, death will be no more”.   Which is the parallel words of the Gospel of Thomas  "Jesus said to them, ONLY  ...then will you enter the kingdom."   It is impossible for you to enter the Kingdom until which time you have been restored to the original condition of MaleFemale -- of which condition Jesus stated: "He that is Whole, need not a physician" (Matt 9:12).  Wholeness indicating the unity of Male and Female into their original form of MaleFemale (see Entering The Kingdom Of Man ). 

In the same way that every cell of the body has the same DNA imprint, so too does every aspect of Creation have the Spiritual DNA of Creator-God.   Which provokes the question: Why is understanding the Trinity and the Divine Pattern that is holographically imprinted into all that exists in Creation important?  When you understand the pattern, only then are you in a position to apply this knowledge to every level of mind and being -- both your own, and all that you perceive and observe in the outer world.  Which further raises the question: Why is it important to understand the pattern of mind?  Because when rightly understood, there is nothing but Mind -- and all that exists, exists because God has Thought it -- and is Thinking it into existence.  And while the most enlightened of mystics have understood this principle, it is only now that modern science has begun to confirm these great truths.  Quoting from the Allusion Of The Forms Of Matter: 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.” 

Before we can begin to understand both Mind and Self, we must first understand the very fabric and pattern of Mind -- which is founded upon what has been portrayed as the Trinity.   While everyone reading this article is using some sort of computer, few are able to understand that all computer languages are drawn from  the interaction of positive and negative -- which in computer language is represented as "1"s (one's) and "0"s (zero's) -- and the result of the interaction of "1"s and "0"s being portrayed in the application of the equation as the third-force balance, or the product (offspring) of the positive and negative equations.  What this means is that male as personified in the terms positive/active/1, is representative of one third of the equation -- female is personified in the terms negative/0/reflective, is representative of another one third of the equation -- with the most important aspect of the equation being represented in their offspring where the two become "one flesh", which is the third-force balance.   What this also means is that men (males) are naturally imbued with a Active Linear-Logic framework of mind -- and that women who are their paradoxical opposite, is naturally imbued with a Reflective-Negative Intuitive framework of mind -- and the Union or Third-Force Balance (offspring of the two polarities in the countless forms of Creation) must be understood as existing in what is portrayed in the above as the Morphic Field that immersed the man/woman (husband/wife) in their own personal atmosphere (see Foundation).  With the offspring (child) being the physical representation of the Divine Pattern in their lives.  Which also means that it is the interaction of the male Linear-Logic with the female Reflictive-Intuitive that is the building mental blocks that is the very foundation and framework of Mind -- without which, the person will remain ignorantly detached and disenfranchised from the Indwelling Logos (Mind of God).   And this framework of the Reality of Mind is holograpically replicated into every aspect of Creation -- in the same way that all electricity is positive and negative -- and all computer language is "1" and "0" -- all existing in different configurations. 

Mind when rightly understood, is in accord with the same pattern.   For every Action -- (positive/1) active principle, there is a reflective reaction (negative/0) -- and Mind is the product of the interaction and balance of the two.   From the perspective of Creator-God and the Doctrine of the Trinity, the Third-Force Balance in the equation of MotherFather God is the Logos -- a.k.a., the Mind of God and the Son of God.  Why is the Logos portrayed as the Son of God?  Because it is the Balance or Offspring of the interaction of the Positive (Father) and Reflective (Mother) Realities of God.   Why is the Logos portrayed as the Son of God -- i.e, the male polarity?  Because the male retains the original pattern of "XY" or Active/Reflective.  Whereas the female is Reflective and genetically "XX" (double reflective).  And this is true not only of God, but also of man with Mind being the third-force balance of man's physical (female) and spiritual (male) natures.   With the image at the right representative of when the Male and Female is restored to the Original Condition of MaleFemale (AdamEve, ManWoman) -- which enables such a restored being to be nourished by the Fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e, "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  

The original followers and disciples of the historical man Jesus did not believe that he was God incarnate as the Romans did -- but rather, that Jesus was a holy man who fulfilled the Laws within himself, and became At-One with the Indwelling Logos (Mind of God).  These were the people who walked and talked with him daily, who were of the position that Jesus attained   “...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 third century author and Church authority Hippolytus makes reference to the original first century disciples of Jesus who were Ebionite Nazirenes, and writes that it was their position that the man Jesus "was 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, they maintained that when any of the other lost prodigal sons "...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).   When the Book of Revelation declares: "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" -- reference is being made to those who overcome their duality of male and female, heaven and earth, and are then able to be nourished by the Divine Manna or Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom.  Further, this reality is expressed in the Revelation where it is stated that: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  

When it is stated in the above that  "...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” -- what this means is that: (1) the historical man Jesus was not himself the Son of God -- but became At-One with the Son of God which is portrayed as the Logos; (2) and that all of mankind as the offspring of God, has this same ability and ultimate destiny to accomplish what our older brother Jesus did.  The Encyclopedia Britannica writes of the word Logos: “In Greek philosophy and theology, the divine reason implicit in the cosmos, ordering it and giving it form and meaning. Though the concept defined by the term logos is found in Greek, Indian, Egyptian, and Persian philosophical and theological systems... The idea of the logos in Greek thought harks back at least to the 6th-century-BC philosopher Heracleitus, who discerned in the cosmic process a logos analogous to the reasoning power in man. Later, the Stoics, philosophers who followed the teachings of the thinker Zeno of Citium (4th-3rd century BC), defined the logos as an active rational and spiritual principle that permeated all reality... Philo of Alexandria, a 1st-century-AD Jewish philosopher, taught that the logos was the intermediary between God and the cosmos, being both the agent of creation and the agent through which the human mind can apprehend and comprehend God. According to Philo and the Middle Platonists, philosophers who interpreted in religious terms the teachings of the 4th-century-BC Greek master philosopher Plato, the logos was both immanent in the world and at the same time the transcendent divine mind..."

If we inquire where we can find the Logos (Mind of God), few people recognize the profoundly important statement by Clement of Alexandria when he wrote: “Thus in the Philebus, Plato, who had been the disciple of the barbarian philosophy, mystically called those Atheists who destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos - by association with their vices” Thus, the message of Clement is threefold: (1) Clement writes that the true source and inner revelation of the writings of Plato, is the same Logos attested to in the Gospel of John; (2) Moreover, we observe the continual statement that the Logos represents the Deity that is equally indwelling within all of mankind; (3)  Clement then very much describes our own present-day condition when he refers to the multitude of people as “Atheists who destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices”.   And this necessary process of washing away the pollutions and refining our lower nature is presented in the statement: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).    

The Logos exists at the core of each of our being.  And as the lost prodigal sons, it is our "riotous" living and mindset which has caused us to fall under the control of what is portrayed as the "Citizen of the Far Country" that is responsible for "...destroying and polluting, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices”.   And it is this "riotous" living and mindset that has robbed us of our Spiritual Inheritance.   What this means is that if man is ignorant of God -- and cannot break through the inner barrier which permits him to receive the Impressions of the Logos (Mind of God) -- then this ignorance is the result of that person's lifestyle and mindset -- the division of which has separated them from their Inner Core of Being.   The problem is that once the damage has been done in a person's life, it is difficult and requires much work on self to restore the purity and necessary framework of mind that would bring about success -- enabling that person to communicate with the Indwelling Logos.    In the same way that it would be impossible to revive a fetus that was torn from it's mothers womb, it is near impossible for a child who has been imbued with the mindset and the vices of our modern cultural lifestyle, to then reverse and heal the damage that has been inflicted upon him, and restore within himself the necessary mental foundation and necessary lifestyle environment that enables the person to tap into the Indwelling Logos.   Thus, from our modern cultural perspective, those who escape the abortionist that tears the fetus from their mother's  womb, rarely ever escape the abortionist of our culture of ignorance that robs the child of the life of it's Soul.   If there is factual truth to the above statement that those who through their mindset and lifestyle "...destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices” -- the facts of life are presented by the Apostle Peter who warns in a quotation in the Homilies of his disciple Clement (of Rome), that the Logos/Son of God/True Prophet 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."  Peter then warns the people: "...Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other." 

It can be stated that mankind dwells in a state of abject ignorance, because he does not understand the above words -- i.e., that there is only ONE SOURCE of KNOWLEDGE -- and all who "...destroy and pollute, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them - that is, the Logos -- by association with their vices”, remain shackled by their own self-imposed ignorance which the Gospels portray as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   As a culture, we are taught by teachers and professors whose mindset and lifestyle is self-destructive, and has alienated them from the Indwelling Logos (Mind of God).   We flock to religious institutions and listen to clergy who have been totally alienated from the True Source of Spiritual Knowledge, because they cling to and promote the dogma and doctrines of carnal men.   And because we fail to understand the very Pattern of Mind, we remain mentally flat-lined and spiritually disenfranchised.

To accomplish what the historical man Jesus did -- and fulfill our own Destiny -- we must ourselves evolve through four (4) birth processes -- wherein, each womb environment is necessary to both evolve us, and prepare us to bring about the next subsequent stage of birth.   Holographically, when you emerged out of the womb of your mother, you entered the Cosmic Womb of Mother-Earth (see Mental Womb) -- and it is in this world that is a Mental Womb, wherein you are striving to Enter The Kingdom Of Man.   The Supreme Court has ruled that a fetus is not a person -- and to some degree the ruling portrays the plight of the vast majority of the people of this world.  Quoting from the foregoing link: In the same way that the fetus has an undeveloped human body that is in the process of physically developing in accord with the Laws of Nature, when we are born into this world we dwell in a mentally-infantile condition that through the interaction of the Natural Laws, we have the potential to bring about the next stage of birth -- i.e., Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (see Mental Womb).   Where the formation of our physical body can be portrayed as a cookie-cutter process, this would not be true with respect to the process of mental development.   Why?   Because the development of mind requires choice, freewill, and the living out of the choices we have made in order to learn through our experiences.  Therefore, there can be no cookie cutter interaction with the Natural Laws that bring about the next stage of birth.   While the Laws of Nature can provide a physical body for the Soul to inhabit, the development of mind requires a very different and complex interaction of the Natural Laws in order to respond to our choices, exercise of freewill, and the mindset and lifestyle we have chosen to live out.  Just because we are born in the image of man, that does not mean that we have attained the Kingdom of Man.  And this is seen in the statement in Genesis: "Then God said, Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground" (Gen 1:26).  Which is followed by: "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." (Gen 1:27). What is portrayed in the term "likeness", is a higher reality that must be achieved. 

From a holographic perspective where each level maintains the pattern of the Macrocosm within each aspect of the microcosm, in the same way that our physical body began when the sperm and ovum joined into an embryo in our mother's womb, it can be said that each man and women is born into this realm as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm).   And because this present womb is necessary to develop our mental-facilities, we find ourselves immersed in an environment where all that we perceive and interact with in the outer world, is in reality aspects of mind impressed into the allegorical forms of nature (see Thought Animated Symbols).   Which means that not only are you observing and interacting within the polarities of Male and Female paradoxical opposites -- and it is through the interaction of Male and Female opposites that the Third-Force of Mind is evolved through the experiences of this three-dimensional realm that can rightly be portrayed as God's School House for His Divine Offspring.   In the same way that the physical body is formed through the interaction of male and female genetic essences of sperm and ovum, the mind of man evolves through the interaction of male and female mental opposites on every level of his being.  Which means that every aspect of each person's life, is an aspect of mind impressed into an allegorical mental-form that is presented to each person as a choice and opportunity to exercise one's freewill and development towards the goal of achieving the next stage of Birth -- i.e., Soul-Birth.   

In accord with the foregoing, what this means is that all the causal factors of all that we observe in this physical world, is all the expression of mind impressed into the forms of Nature -- and therefore all the experiences of the life we are presently living.  All the actions and events that mankind is immersed in -- the countless conflicts and resolutions -- all present to us the interaction of active-positive (male) and reactive-reflective-negative (female) opposite polarities of mind being played out as catalysts to stimulate mental growth and development in the individual who is consciously aware of what they are perceiving -- understanding that what they see in their perceptive-vision and understanding is taking place within their own mind -- which can be expressed in the words: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..." (Gospel of Thomas).  The Law is that every Action not only moves in the direction intended, but also initiates an opposite reaction -- and what is known as the Law of Octaves insures that the two forces come together in the Third-Force Interval (see TheLawOfOctaves.com ).   When it is understood that in the Divine Pattern of Creation that the Active/Positive Principle is an integral part of -- and the other half of the Reflective/Negative Principle, that being half of each other they must return to the Center-Balance.  Some people refer this Equation of the Natural Laws as the Law of Karma -- often expressed in the words, what goes around, comes around -- and especially in the words: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ).  When rightly understood, Jesus warned in the Sermon on the Mount that: "Do not judge, or you will be judged. For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you" (Matt 7:1-2).   And it is this Natural Laws that brings not only our judgments, but also our actions, back upon us (see YouTube: The Esoteric Sermon On The Mount).  And whoever forces a person to submit, will in like manner be forced to submit: “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity...” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ).  And this equation of the Natural Laws which was understood by Pythagoras, Valentinus, Giordanio Bruno, Gurdjieff and taught by Jesus, is the very framework of how all of Creation is evolving from the Alpha of abject ignorance, to the Omega of Enlightened Light.  And this equation is the very basis of the Trinity that the Church of Constantine corrupted and plundered the Christian world into the abyss of spiritual ignorance.  

In the same way that an embryo evolves into a fetus -- and the fetus must be nourished by physical food -- in this mental-womb, the mind must be nourished by thoughts and impressions that stimulate mental growth and development.   And herein lies the crux of the problem: In the same way that all things exist within the spectrum of the divine pattern of male/female and the third-force balance of mind, the mind itself can only be developed, expanded and deepened, when the male and female opposites are equally present and represented in the third-force balance of the thoughts and impressions that are necessary to nourish the mind. 

  The Cause Of Gender Violence: With this in mind -- i.e., it is important to understand that what we observe in the outer world has its source and causal-factors within the mind of mankind -- but with respect to that which may be categorized as gender violence, there is also another important element to the equation.  Therefore, let me present a different perspective on the recent Me-Too Movement (quoting the Wikipedia): "'Me Too' (or '#MeToo', with local alternatives in other languages spread virally as a two-word hashtag used on social media in October 2017 to denounce sexual assault and harassment, in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein. The phrase, long used in this sense by social activist Tarana Burke, was popularized by actress Alyssa Milano, who encouraged women to tweet it to publicize experiences to demonstrate the widespread nature of misogynistic behavior. Since then, the phrase has been posted online millions of times, often with an accompanying personal story of sexual harassment or assault."      

The question is often raised as to what can be done about gender-violence?   But to even begin to answer this question, we must first understand the causal-factor in the mind?   Which begins with the reason why women are physically weaker than men?   And while this question will most likely seem absurd to the vast majority of people who are not accustomed to perceptive-wholeness in their understanding, there is not only an important reason why women are physically weaker, but the reason is founded upon the pattern and blueprint of human consciousness and the Natural Laws that are responsible for the reality of male aggression of women that is physically observed in this world.  

The problem is that we are not accustomed to thinking in terms that there is a causal factor in all events and realities that we observe in this world.  The events of life don't happen in a vacuume -- and in the same way that there is a mental reason why women are physically weaker and often the victims of gender-violence, there is also an important reason why women are sexually objectified -- and in the base levels of lower earthly human consciousness, perceived primarily as sexual objects by a very large segment of the male population.   In like manner, there is an important psychological and spiritual reason why women put themselves out as sexual objects -- are consumed with their sexual image and attraction -- are often seen as peddling their sexuality as a commodity -- and even place themselves in a vulnerable position where they are easily made victims.   While it has been said that men have a sexual thought every 20 seconds -- in the case of many women, they are totally consumed with their image and appearance -- which of course has its roots in feminine sexuality.   

When rightly understood from a holographic perspective, the cause of much of the gender violence in the outer world, is a projection of the internal strife between the (male) Linear/Logic and (feminine) Intuitive spheres of mind -- and the expression of this inward strife and conflict is then externalized in the domination, sexualization and abuse of women who are the embodiment of Intuitive thinking abilities.   From the perspective of the Tree of Duality as patterned in the outer divided columns of the Tree of Life, the (male) positive/active spheres of mind strive to dominate and even consume and nullify the (feminine) negative/reflective Intuitive insights -- and once cognizant of this suppression of the Feminine/Intuitive, this suppression can be observed in virtually every intellectual exchange.   But understanding the causal-factor, is very difficult in a world that does not at all understand the nature and reality of the Intuitive spheres of mind -- their unique powers and abilities that are contrary and often paradoxically opposite to the male Linear spheres of mind -- or even the purpose and existence of what can be portrayed as the spheres of domination within the mind of mankind that must be evolved and made whole, in order to overcome and prevail over man's base and animalistic lower nature.  Which means that we can't overcome the physical domination and abuse of the feminine/intuitive, until we first resolve the issue in the causal-factors of mind and spirit. 

The harsh reality that is easily observed, is that in the same way that the male half of humanity has the power and ability to totally control and even dominate the female half in this world, this total domination is merely an outward expression of an inner reality of mind.  In the same way that male domination and the sexual objectification and what can constitute the abuse of women has its primary roots in the blueprint of mind -- its mental expression in the physical is embedded in our various cultures.   And if we want to change it, then we must begin by perceiving and understanding the male and female relationship in its core reality of mind and spirit.  

The predominant portrayal of women in our culture is personified as sexual -- including the sexual objectification of the female physical form and image -- the nurturing of children, and as a companion in the family environment.  And this abject ignorance and the sexualization of the feminine is engrained in every aspect of the world's culture.   Both young boys and girls are clueless as to the TRUE purpose of their gender roles, or their potential beyond that of sexual satisfaction, procreation, or emotional companionship.  Moreover, since young boys have no interest in family or child rearing, young boys are looking at girls primarily as a sexual outlet.   Our culture has rejected all traditional values, has ushered in the age of sexual recreation.  And if as a result of sexual intercourse the girl becomes pregnant, this is often resolved by abortion.  As the weaker sex. young boys are taught by their peers that when a woman says "no", she can either be coerced into relenting to his advances, or even physically overcome.  We have all heard the stories where a group of young boys will gang-rape a young girl or woman.  Young boys keep lists of young girls who will "put out" -- so they can be dated for a "sure thing".   Date rape is a reality that every young woman must come to terms with -- and if she is not forced into sex, she is often drugged.  A recent survey found that 1,073 women, or 19.7 percent, reported experiencing an attempted or completed sexual assault since entering college. Researchers noted that "the majority of all sexual assaults involved oral, vaginal, or anal penetration and thus met the legal definition of rape in most states."

Most young males don't even forced or coerced sex to even be rape -- only a normal or typical part of the male/female sexual relationship.   In the article, The History of Campus Sexual Assault, it is stated that: "7.7 percent of male students volunteered anonymously that they had engaged in or attempted forced sex.  Almost none considered it to be a crime. They would say, 'Yes, I held a woman down to have sex with her against her consent but that was definitely not rape,' Koss says. Part of the reason that few of her respondents considered themselves sexual offenders, she said, is that they faced no negative consequences. No accusation. No shame. No punishment. Compared with when she started doing this research in the 1980s, she says, even more men in current studies, around 11 percent, admit to being perpetrators. "  Male aggression is often an integral part of every aspect of our culture.  Hollywood, politics, the business establishments and all the institutions where various creative ways are found to advance male aggression against women.   And since many young girls are socially pressured to give into male (sexual) aggression, and in many instances even afraid to cry rape, many women are easy victims of male sexual assault.   But what our cultural and religious institutions fail to understand, is the fact that this outward aggression and even enslavement against women, has its beginning in the inward aggression and enslavement by the (male) Linear/Logic spheres of mind, and their dominant power over the (feminine) Intuitive spheres of mind.   Which aggression and enslavement is born out of man's own self-ignorance that inhibits his mental and spiritual development.  

Throughout the cultures of the world, men often overpower women with their superior strength -- i.e., enslaving them; raping them; drugging them; taking them captive; beating them into submission; dressing women in burkas; not permitting them to speak and act without their (men's) permission; denying them all education and advancement opportunities -- and in some cultures where they are even considered the property of men, denying them equal protection or rights.  In times of war and conflict, women are often portrayed as the spoils of war -- i.e., all the men are killed, and the women raped and/or taken captive as sex-slaves.   Even today there is a part of the female population that has been bought and sold as victims of Human Trafficking.  And when attacked, only in rare instances does a woman possess the physical strength and ability to defend herself -- much less actually prevail over a man.   In Western cultures while women have greater freedom, they are sexually objectified and cast into a sexual role in both their manner of dress, and in the minds of most men.  And even when the men permit women greater liberty and freedom, in most instances the women must both think in the manner that men demand they think (see The Opening And Unlocking Of The Mind), and act in the manner that men can use them in the fulfillment of their own appetites and needs.   Our modern culture and electronic media has made sex a commodity where half-naked women must flaunt their wares and display themselves to attain stature and success in life.  Women themselves have promoted their own sexual objectification, and have remained silent, while men such as Harvey Weinstein forced young girls into sexual submission in order to get ahead.  

  The Ignorant Anti-Perception Of Women: In our modern spiritually disenfranchised culture, women are never personified as the opposite half of a man.  Further, other than sex, child rearing and a largely emotional relationship, the importance of woman is not at all understood in the mental and spiritual development of man.  Men and women ignorantly portray themselves as whole -- i.e., a whole being.  Led by female-misogynists who despise all that is feminine and portray themselves as Feminists, our culture often promotes the biological and spiritual lie that women are the same as men with the exception of their child-bearing roles.   And in the promotion this lie of profound ignorance, men and young boys are never told that the female gender are not only their opposite equal -- and because of the feminine void within them that inhibits their own development, women are representative of the very means for men to advance themselves both mentally and spiritually.   While there are cases where half a person's brain has been removed, and they then to some degree learn to adapt -- but the unique abilities that are dominant in either the left or right hemisphere of the brain can't be fully accommodated in these cases where one of the halves of the brain has been removed.  This is also true of the division of man and woman.

By Divine Design, women possess different and often opposite abilities to men -- with the problem being that while the male Linear attributes are often celebrated, the female Intuitive abilities are portrayed as nonsensical and of little value.   The problem is that by design, it is the interaction of the male predominantly Linear, and feminine predominantly Intuitive spheres of mind, that is necessary to overcome organic human mental and spiritual limitations.  When you divide something in half -- and each half retains certain important abilities which are necessary to both complete, and have the capacity to raise up the opposite half -- then it is important to bring the two halves together to interact.  And only through this interaction of (male and female) opposites, can the process of evolved expansion and deepening of Mind and Consciousness be brought about.   And what this means is that without woman, men will remain mentally flat-lined and spiritually impotent.  Thus, the Feminine-Intuitive is absolutely necessary for the development of the Male-Linear spheres of mind -- and because the Linear always attempts to control and suppress the Intuitive, it is necessary for the separation of the gender-opposites in order to bring about the development of mind and spiritual evolution of the Soul.  In many respects, it can be factually stated that the interaction of the opposites in the form of the insatiable appetite and necessity of sex, is the catalyst to bring about the development of mind and consciousness in achieving a higher plane of Wholeness and Completion.   And it is academia's ignorance of this fact -- the celibacy or misuse of sex by many religious paths -- and the promotion of unrestrained recreational sex by our modern culture -- that is responsible for the mental and spiritual stagnation that chains mankind to the abyss of abject ignorance of Self and the Higher Purpose and Realities of Life.  

Einstein wrote: "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."    And what the Enlightened Visionary has warned is that because man's religious, philosophical, cultural and educational institutions "...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 causal factors of all that man sees and experiences in this world, man remains perpetually lost and blind and bound with shackles of ignorance.   Because man and woman are divided halves, the Linear mind of most men perceive a different and incomplete reality that is very different than the Intuitive perceptive-understanding of many women.   While the Linear minded person only sees what is visually perceived with man's physical senses, dependent upon a woman's natural Intuitive-perception, she is more able to perceive the causal factors that are responsible for creating the events and experiences in the life we all are living.    Modern physicists have already proven that what man sees with his natural senses, is a shadow-image of events that are generated in an Unseen Source-Realm (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life).  Where the Linear mind possess superior strategic abilities,  it is the Intuitive mind that is able to perceptively observe the Causal-Factors that have transpired in the Unseen Source-Realm.  And only when the Strategic perception of the Linear, and the Causal factors of the Intuitive are brought together, can Conscious High Level Perceptive-Solutions be brought about.  As an example: Among many of the Iroquois Native American tribes, only the men who attended the inner counsel could vote -- but before they could vote, they were required to discuss and come to a consensus with their wives.   Thus, the one vote could only be cast, when both halves of the wholeness-equation had provided their specific input, and a consensus was achieved through Wholeness.    This is one of the many important lessons that the Europeans failed to learn when they came to the American continent.

The idea that men and women perceive differently because of their inherent polarities of body and mind, will be immediately rejected as absurd by all facets of our modern culture -- i.e., religious, academic, philosophic and cultural -- and it is the failure of restoring Wholeness in an Evolved state of Mind and Consciousness, that is responsible for all the suffering and ignorance in the world, and has alienated mankind from his own True Source of Being.   When Dr. Larry Summers made the statement that perhaps women are attracted to different intellectual and occupational pursuits than men, he was drummed out of his position as president of Harvard University.   Quoting from The Guardian: "Dr Summers argued ...that boys outperform girls on high school science and math scores because of genetic difference. 'Research in behavioural genetics is showing that things people previously attributed to socialisation weren't due to socialisation after all'" -- and for making such a statement, Dr. Summers was driven out of his position at Harvard. 

Thus, if you stood before the halls of academia and made the statement that the (feminine) Intuitive spheres of mind which our modern educational institutions not only reject, but refuse to even acknowledge, are the means for man to gain greater insight and learn the Truth of all Truths -- and that the common reliance upon linear book-knowledge and the authorities and teachers of this world, inhibits man's ability to gain access to higher knowledge and understanding, you would find yourself immediately rejected.  In accord with their linear-mindset, this would make absolutely no sense to their manner of thinking.  

In the same way that the halls of academia rejected the statement that men and women perceive and interact in the world differently, the very teaching of the Apostle Peter on scripture interpretation has been suppressed and rejected by the Church.  The most profound statement was made by the Apostle Peter as recorded by his disciple Clement where Peter warns those who attempt to read the scriptures literally: "...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"   Why should the scriptures not be read "...according to the understanding of our own mind"?    And not understood in accord with "an extraneous sense, which you have brought from without"?  Because the mind of man attempts to interpret them in a literal-historical sense -- which totally defeats the very purpose of the scriptures.  That the scriptures are not at all historical accounts -- but rather, events of the seekers own mind and consciousness -- prompted the Church Father Origen to write that the “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).   Sincere believers must therefore turn from the understanding of the flesh, or in the words of the Apostle: “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Rom 8:6 KJV).  The religion of Messiah/Christ was one of the spirit -- and Paul taught the Gentile believers not to look to the historical man Jesus, but rather the indwelling Spiritual Living Messiah/Christ as their savior and revealer of truth: “Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according o the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer” (2 Cor 5:16 NAS).   This Spiritual Messiah/Christ, over the historical Messiah/Christ in the flesh, was what biblical scholar Rudolf Bultmann was speaking of when he concluded that the “…Christian faith is, and should be, comparatively uninterested in the historical Jesus and centered instead on the transcendent Christ” (Rudolf Bultmann, Encyclopedia Britannica).  As a Biblical scholar, Rudolf Bultmann had studied Biblical texts that had less corruption by the 4th century Church of Constantine -- and observed that whenever the author portrayed the term Messiah/Christ as indicating the Power of the Inner Anointing of the Mind, the scribes of the Church added the name Jesus before or after the reference -- which edit totally altered the meaning of the text (see BibleCorruption.com ).  

With respect to learning only from the One Teacher that the Apostle Peter stated exists within the core of all of mankind, Peter is quoted as stating with respect to the Inner Source of Knowledge that was portrayed as the Logos or True Prophet, that this Source of Knowledge or Teacher 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."  Those who attempt to understand the scriptures "...according to the understanding of our own mind" -- without using the Power of Intuition that enables us to learn from the Inner Source of Knowledge and Truth -- will always be misguided in their failure to use the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge in the manner of the Pharisees.   The Linear spheres of mind that only accept what is physically seen or understood in a literal sense as being valid, inhibits the ability of mankind to learn and be taught by this Inner Source of Knowledge.  Why?   Because it is the Intuitive spheres of mind that when developed, have the ability to tap into this inner Source that sees and understands all realities that is not at all apparent to the physical senses of organic man.   In fact, Peter warns not to interpret the scriptures  "...according to the understanding of our own mind", because the scriptures are not historical -- but rather, designed to employ allegorical catalysts that develop man's Intuitive spheres of mind (see An Inconvenient Truth) -- thereby enabling man to gain access to this All-Knowing Inner Source of Knowledge that exists within the mind of all of mankind.  

If we pose the question: What is the foundation and basis of this linear-mindset that actually inhibits the acquisition of Higher Knowledge?  The true question that should be asked first: Is the mind of an infant empty?  Or does the infant possess the innate ability to tap into a pre-existing source of knowledge within himself that exceeds all of the wisdom of this world that he could be taught in the traditional manner?   In the above we see where the Apostle Peter states that every person is capable of being taught by the True Prophet (Logos/Son of God) that exists at the core of all of mankind's being.  Under the heading of Anamnesis (Philosophy), the Wikipedia states: It is the idea that humans possess knowledge from past incarnations and that learning consists of rediscovering that knowledge within us. The article then goes on to say: Socrates' response is to develop his theory of anamnesis. He suggests that the soul is immortal, and repeatedly incarnated; knowledge is actually in the soul from eternity...  What one perceives to be learning, then, is actually the recovery of what one has forgotten. (Once it has been brought back it is true belief, to be turned into genuine knowledge by understanding.) And thus Socrates (and Plato) sees himself, not as a teacher, but as a midwife, aiding with the birth of knowledge that was already there in the student.   While the English language is spiritually dead, Jñāna in Sanskrit means "knowledge" -- but, like the Greek word Gnosis, the word Jñāna portrays Knowledge acquired through Meditation -- i.e., looking within one's own mind at a deeper level.  

True Thought requires the dynamic interaction of the (male) Linear and (feminine) Intuitive spheres of Mind.  And the Mind can either be developed to Think, or as a recording device in the process of rote-programming.  We can observe this reality in the modern students who are portrayed as "snowflakes" -- who cannot bare to even hear conflicting thoughts -- often needing therapy when exposed to valid opposite perceptions that undermine their mental-programming that is representative of the destruction of the very purpose and objective of education.  The mind is formatted in the manner it is developed -- and once formatted, it cannot be used in both ways.  And therefore,  if it is true as men of wisdom has attested to -- and the mind of an infant is not empty and in need of rote programming to fill it up -- then when we educate the child through rote-programming in the traditional outward linear manner, we not only inhibit the child's ability to look inwardly and employ the process of Anamnesis to draw upon this inner Source of Self and Knowledge, but the very manner in which we teach has atrophied the spheres of mind that are necessary to develop, in order to tap into this Inner Source.   And when we teach young girls through rote mind-programming that they are the same as boys -- and program them to think only in a Linear manner -- we not only rob young girls of their very unique gifts and God-Given abilities -- but we inhibit the only catalyst necessary to bring about the mental and spiritual advancement of society as a whole.  Linear-intellectuals and dogmatic religious authorities reject what they don't possess the capacity to understand, because of their own limited linear-based reasoning.  Because they reject even this inner source of knowledge -- proclaiming that there is no such thing as a Soul that possesses a knowledge-base founded upon the previous lives the Soul has lived -- without recognizing that it is their linear-based process of learning and rote programming of the mind is the very factor that has inhibited their ability to tap into this Inner Source of Knowledge.  Why?  Because the Linear Spheres of mind look outwardly -- and their rejection of the (feminine) inward looking Intuitive spheres of mind has inhibited their ability to even begin to connect to this inner Source of Self and Knowing. 

@@@

With respect to the above statement that "...Socrates (and Plato) sees himself, not as a teacher, but as a midwife, aiding with the birth of knowledge that was already there in the student" -- this inner Source of Knowledge is drawn in part, from the previous accomplishments of the Soul as portrayed in the words of the Church Father Origen when he explained 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 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 words of Origen is an affirmation of the statement: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows" (Gal 6:7-8 NIV).  In view of the fact that this experiential-knowledge can only be accessed through the development and innate ability of the Intuitive Spheres of Mind, the latent ability of mankind to tap into this Inner Source is the most important element of a proper education and the practice of genuine religion.

Modern science has already proven the validity of the Soul that has lived countless lives (see Proof Of Reincarnation).   In recent surveys, 25% of Christians believe in reincarnation (see Christian).  In a world wide survey, 51% of the people believe in reincarnation (see World Wide).   And while there have been countless children who have recalled a previous life their Soul as lived (see Psychology Today: Children Who Seemingly Remember Past Lives), both academia and most of Western Religion continues to ignore the facts -- even though the original followers and disciples of Jesus believed in reincarnation (see The Biblical Foundation Mindset ) -- reincarnation was taught by the pre-Nicene Church Fathers (see The Early Church On Predestination http://ChristianReincarnation.org#predestination ) -- and it is impossible to evolve and mature the mind, without understanding the higher reality of the Soul that evolves to Completion and Wholeness over the course of many lifetimes.  And if we pose the question as to why most people can't recall the previous lives their Soul has lived?  It is because most people have never developed the ability to look inwardly.   And it is their own thinking, beliefs and mindset that has Arrested Their Mental Development -- thereby inhibiting their ability to tap into this Inner Source of Supreme Knowledge that is beyond the perceptive-vision and understanding of the organic male-linear spheres of mind.  And while women who by virtue of their gender-based polarity of body and mind are better able to utilize the Intuitive spheres of mind than their male counterparts, because the Linear either rejects whatever is not seen outwardly -- and/or attempts to control the Feminine based Intuitive -- his (man's) whole foundation and framework of mind exists in a great void that makes him a victim of his own attempt rule the roost -- and reject whatever demonstrates the grave limitations of his beliefs and thinking.  

Socratic Method: Under the heading of the Socratic Method, the Wikipedia states: "The Socratic method, also can be known as maieutics, method of elenchus, elenctic method, or Socratic debate, is a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals, based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to draw out ideas and underlying presumptions. It is a dialectical method, involving a discussion in which the defense of one point of view is questioned; one participant may lead another to contradict themselves in some way, thus weakening the defender's point. This method is named after the Classical Greek philosopher Socrates and is introduced by him in Plato's Theaetetus as midwifery (maieutics) because it is employed to bring out definitions implicit in the interlocutors' beliefs, or to help them further their understanding."  While this statement is partially true with respect to delving down to the core of the person's beliefs, because it was written by those of a Linear mindset, it is lacking the acknowledgement of the employment of Anamnesis where it states that Plato "...suggests that the soul is immortal, and repeatedly incarnated; knowledge is actually in the soul from eternity...  What one perceives to be learning, then, is actually the recovery of what one has forgotten. (Once it has been brought back it is true belief, to be turned into genuine knowledge by understanding.) And thus Socrates (and Plato) sees himself, not as a teacher, but as a midwife, aiding with the birth of knowledge that was already there in the student."

By deeply examining and exploring the statements of answers of the student -- it is important to uncover the source of the student's positions and how they arrived at each conclusion.  In a person who Intuitive spheres of mind have not been atrophied and inhibited from development, the student many times is able to tap into many past-life influences and experiences that is the cause of their conclusions.   And by opening the mind of the student to the Inner Source of their thinking, this is the fulfillment of the words:  "...What one perceives to be learning, then, is actually the recovery of what one has forgotten. (Once it has been brought back it is true belief, to be turned into genuine knowledge by understanding)".   Genuine Knowledge is the result of when our beliefs and conclusions are built upon the wisdom and knowledge of our Eternal Soul and the Light of the Inner Logos (Son of God).   Only what connects the physical and the spiritual and manifested in the Wholeness of Soul-Reality is Genuine.    And it is counterfeit thinking and knowledge that is built upon the carnal thinking and doctrines of men who are spiritually disenfranchised and alienated from this inner Soul-Reality, that is promoted by academia and modern faux-religion.  

As an example of the above: There are a number of ways of employing age-regression techniques to permit the person (man or woman) to perceptively view the previous lives their Soul has lived -- thereby enabling them to connect with their own Inner Source of Knowledge.  You accomplish this intuitive-perception by removing the domination of the linear to control and suppress the intuitive -- thus, using techniques to remove the mental-burka from the feminine-intuitive spheres of mind.  And often, once the intuitive-genie has been released from the proverbial bottle where her abilities have been suppressed by the person's linear-dominated shackled condition, the person often develops the ability to perceptively view their Soul's previous lives without any assistance from another person.   But since the male-linear always attempts to dominate the feminine-intuitive, as soon as the person is awakened from the age-regression episode, the male-linear attempt to discredit what the feminine-intuitive has observed and experienced when perceptively-viewing the previous lives the Soul has lived.  And this is not only true with respect to male-linear domination in viewing the previous lives of the soul, but also the rejection of all that is perceived by the feminine-intuitive which contradicts what is written in books -- which books are based upon a three-dimensional linear-perception.

Our Soul or True-Self exists in a twelve (12) dimensional realm -- a place not only above this three-dimensional physical realm, but also what is known as the astral realms that surround the physical.   Thus, the problem is seen in the fact that in this twelve-dimensional higher reality of the Realm of Souls where all things are seen and exist in their true state, it is impossible to experience and grow the Light of the Soul.   So, in the same way that the sperm divides into an "X" (female) or "Y" (male) factor in order to generate an offspring, the Soul can only enter this realm and experience the necessary interaction as opposites, by entering this realm as either an "X" or "Y" Cosmic Ovum or Sperm.   In this three-dimensional realm there is no way that the male and female polarities can manifest in their twelve-dimensional unified reality of the Soul.   And thus, the problem is seen in the fact that it is the very nature of the Active-Positive polarity of Male, to always attempt to dominate and subordinate the Reflective-Negative polarity of Female -- which Female polarity has been drawn from the original pattern of AdamEve or MaleFemale. 

In Nature we can observe the male always attempting to mark its terroritory -- which includes claiming the females as his own.   He does this by engaging in sex with the female -- thus, creating and ætheric connection between him and the female(s).   In the natural world of our (mankind's) lower nature (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature), it is the male's motivating force to rejoin with his feminine nature that has been cut out of him.   And the problem is seen in the fact that male-linear motivating force is not a conscious thought that can be philosophically diminished and negated -- because it is hard wired into his psyche, mind and being by his controlling lower (animal) nature.   The transformation of man's lower animal nature which positively controls men, and negatively controls women -- shackling them to the lower consciousness of the earth -- can only be overcome within an environment that is conducive to bringing about the necessary transformation.   This environment must be within a family and community environment where the differences between men and women are understood -- where the roles of men and women are embraced -- where women, who are acknowledged for their greater intuitive insights, are raised in a manner that evolves and expands woman's intuitive gifts and abilities -- where the threefold nature of mankind is understood -- and where man's relationship to his Soul or True-Self is an integral part of the understanding of the family and community. 

Modern science has already proven the validity of the analogy of Plato's Cave (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life ) -- and in accord with these modern scientific findings in what is portrayed as A New Theory Of Consciousness wherein it is now understood that the Mind of Man is not the brain  (see The Realties Of Mind ) -- but rather, our mind exists in an (Ætheric) Field that surrounds the physical body -- and therefore, the Mind which is in the Unseen (Ætheric) Field, works and functions through the brain and organs of the body -- and is not the mind therefore is not the actual physical brain itself -- and the mind is expressed through the interaction of the Whole body from the tip of the toes to the hairs on the head.   Further, that every aspect of the body is an expression of the mind.   This emerging scientific finding (see FIELD-BRAIN THEORY) states that, "Between quantum physics and neuroscience, a theory emerges of a mental field we each have, existing in another dimension and behaving in some ways like a black hole."   The problem is that the Linear spheres of mind that are predominantly male, cannot easily access this Inner Source of Knowledge -- and must rely upon the feminine Intuitive spheres of mind to provide access to the Mind that exists in the Unseen (Ætheric) Field that works through the organs of the physical body.   And while the mystic and spiritual visionary has always maintained this higher reality that modern science has begun to prove the validity of, the male-dominated Linear is unwilling to give up its absolute control over the female-intuitive. 

What man envisions marriage as the necessary environment and catalyst that has the potential and ability to advance him mentally and spiritually?  Or that without woman, a man will remain mentally flat-lined?   Yet, what is not understood is that while the Linear-Logic spheres of mind that look outwardly can appear to be intelligent by typical human standards, it is the very standards that the Linear-Intellectuals who are totally locked into an outward perception have created, that shackles mankind to the abyss of abject ignorance.  From their very limited perception, if something cannot be proven outwardly, then it does not exist.   Yet, in order to evolve beyond the organic limitations of what can be portrayed as the natural "animal-soul" level of man's consciousness, the Linear-Logic MUST be balanced by the Inward Looking Intuitive -- and then evolved beyond the basic levels associated with natural organic human consciousness.  And the great void is easily proven when it is recognized that academia does not even acknowledge that an Inner Reality even exists within the Mind of Man.   

As explored in the above, in the allegorical Genesis account, woman is portrayed as having been drawn from (the side of) man -- thus, she is not only a part of him, but is his other half that has been separated and removed from him -- i.e., biblically portrayed as a "help-meet" (see Woman As Man's Help-Meet And Savior).  But few people actually understand what this term which was translated out of the Hebrew actually means.   Thus, the question can be posed: How can woman be portrayed as man's savior?  We must approach this question from a two-fold perspective.  Human DNA is comprised of 46 chromosomes -- i.e., 23 pairs, with 23 from the mother, and 23 from the father -- which, when joined at conception, create an embryo of 46 chromosomes, or 23 pairs.  When the sperm and ovum are deposited in the womb, they have already split.  The female ovum is no longer 46 chromosomes -- and the split in the sperm creates an "X" and a "Y" -- wherein the sex of the fetus is determined by whether the ovum was fertilized by either the "X" or "Y" half of the male sperm.   And with the genetic split of the ovum and sperm, neither can have any continuance because they are no longer 46 chromosomes without joining with their opposite male/female genetic essence.   

Holographically as a Cosmic Sperm, in the same way that the ovum can be portrayed as the savior of the sperm that unites with it -- without which joining, no growth and development can take place -- in which case, the undeveloped sperm will be expunged from the womb -- the same is true with respect to the relationship of men and women.   If, therefore, it is true, as personified in the allegorical Genesis account, that woman was removed from man, and is the other half of his mind and being that perceives all reality from an opposite paradoxical perspective and understanding, then our present culture and systems of education (academia) can rightly be portrayed as even more enslaving as religions and cultures that silence women, or the armies that see women as the spoils of war.  But this does not mean that feminine-intuition has all the answers -- because it/she does not.  In the same way that the ovum presents to the sperm the opportunity to evolving and achieve the possibility of birth -- as the missing half of man, woman presents the opportunity of evolving the Greater Mind of Restored AdamEve, to achieve the next subsequent stage of birth.   In the same way that interaction with with feminine-intuitive presents the necessary catalyst that permits the male-linear to evolve, the male-linear equally presents the necessary catalyst that permits the feminine-intuitive to evolve.   Both the feminine-intuitive and the male-linear must equally evolve and manifest on a higher plane -- which cannot be accomplished independently. 

In accord with the Holographic Pattern, in the same way that an embryo can only develop within the balanced chromosomal merger of (male) sperm and (female) ovum -- with each of the 23 chromosomes merged with their male/female opposites -- the mind can only develop within this same pattern that can only advance with the reunification of the male and female paradoxical opposites.   What is admittedly deceiving is the fact that in what would spiritually constitute what can be defined as a Divine Marriage Union where the two have become "one flesh", other than the exchange of DNA (see Why Is Sexual Immorality condemned In the Bible ), there is no apparent change to the man or woman that can be physically observed. 

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 the Ætheric (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 whomsoever 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 a multitude of 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.

In the separation of AdamEve into Adam and Eve -- with each half possessing important aspects of mind that complete the other half -- if a woman is receiving a multitude of impressions from any number of previous sexual partners, then she is incapable of completing and returning the impressions of her husband in a pure state that has been raised within her onto a higher plane.  And without this reception and raising up of impressions, no advancement can be accomplished.   Therefore, the more polluted a woman has made herself, the more unable she is to fulfill her divine purpose.   

In a Spiritual Marriage, the Third-Force Morphic Field is created and sustained that not only immerses the man and woman in their own Unseen Atmosphere that is the Divine Force that Mentally Transforms the Two who have been made "one flesh" by virtue of existing within their own Mental-Atmosphere.   Which means that what we see as gender violence not only has its source in our liner-driven male-dominated thinking, and therefore the abuse and overpowering of women on the worlds cultural stage, is a grave flaw that is the epitome of our cultural self-ignorance.   And this profound ignorance is an expression of man's inner reality of mind where in most people, the (male) Linear/Logic Spheres of mind reject the (feminine) Intuitive.   Why?  The Linear/Logic spheres of mind not only look outwardly to the images, institutions and three-dimensional reality of this world, it evaluates and discerns all things from this limited perspective of man's reality. 

Is there a war on women?   And if there is, who is waging this war?  Perhaps this question can better be answered by suggesting that there is, and for the most part there has always been a war on the Intuitive -- and since by her inherent nature, woman is very much the embodiment of the Intuitive Spheres of Mind as patterned in the Tree of Life, it can rightly be stated that the war on women is not only carried on by academia,  patriarchal religious systems, our culture, but also the Feminists who in many respects are themselves female misogynists who wage war against their own femininity.   The truth of the matter is, that while men and women are equal, they are anything but the same.   Quoting from The Opening And Unlocking Of The Mind:

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.

What is being presented in the above is the fact that our culture, as well as both our traditional religions and academia, all suppress the Feminine-Intuitive -- programming the minds of young girls to ignore their natural mode of thinking, and instead respond from a Male-Linear mindset -- all failing to explore the important differences that are easily demonstrated between men and women -- which suppression of the Feminine-Intuitive inhibits and flat-lines all intellectual development beyond a very carnal level that is portrayed in the Bible as being of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness.   In both academia and our culture,  all standards that are used to measure educational achievement, are all from a Male-Linear perspective.  With its rote programming of memorization and intellectual parroting on demand in the students pursuit of passing standardized tests which are used to measure accomplishment, the spheres of mind necessary for Feminine-Intuition are suppressed and atrophied.  Which means that the only acceptable source of knowledge and learning, is from sources in the outer world -- which is a total rejection of the process of Anamnesis (see Anamnesis - The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths ). 

The greatest and most esteemed of philosophical and religious sources have maintained that each person has access to an Inner Source of Knowledge that is far greater and superior to all the sources of knowledge and learning in the outer world (see The Great Question ).  Yet, both our culture and academia totally ignore and even reject this Wisdom.  With respect to the proper interpretation of the scriptures, the Apostle Peter warned that the scriptures must not be "...read according to the understanding of our own mind", -- which traditional understanding from a human perspective, is to read the scriptures as if they are an historical narrative documenting man's past.   Thus, Christians embrace the grave error of modern academia, and they read the scriptures in what can rightly be portrayed as an Old Covenant mode, regardless of the statement of Peter and the original followers and disciples of Jesus that the scriptures must never be understood in accord with "an extraneous sense, which you have brought from without".  Further stating that there is a Teacher and Source of Knowledge  "...within the mind of every one of us" -- and  "...is inoperative"  to the thinking of those who fail to seek this Inner Supreme Source/Teacher of Knowledge.  Yet, Christians who remain spiritually disenfranchised and ignorant, totally reject this core Gospel teaching that the only valid interpretation of the scriptures MUST be drawn from the Source within mankind -- rather than being drawn from the interpretations of men in the outer world.    

Under the heading of Sibyl, the Wikipedia states that "The sibyls were women that the ancient Greeks believed were oracles" -- which means that they understood the different domains and powers of mind that separated men and women.  In the frontispiece to Voltaire's book on Newton's philosophy, Émilie du Châtelet appears as Voltaire's muse, reflecting Newton's heavenly insights down to Voltaire (see Voltaire).   Which provokes the question: Can we even have heavenly insights when the feminine-intuitive is suppressed?  In Mythology, a muse is always feminine, and is allegorically portrayed as the nine goddesses who symbolized the arts and sciences -- i.e., the intuitive catalyst that connects the mind of the person to an inner source.   In the Gospel According To The Hebrews, the Holy Spirit is portrayed as the Mother of Jesus -- i.e., "Even now did my mother the Holy Spirit take me by one of mine hairs, and carried me away unto the great mountain Thabor".    And it is this Divine Feminine that is portrayed as the Teacher of those who are faithful to the Core Gospel Teachings (see Original Gospel).

Holographic Patterns repeat the primary pattern at every level of mind and being -- i.e., as above, so below.  In the Tree of Life Pattern of mind at the right, we can see the unity of male/female in the bottom Earthly Kingdom sphere that is representative of the generating bio-energy and power of man's lower earthly nature.  But this lower (feminine) Earthly Kingdom is the other half of the upper (male) Heavenly Kingdom -- and both must be brought together in the Center.  Thus, the problem seen in the reality that each thought a person entertains, is initiated as the Vital Life-Forces begins in the lower center to arise and develop through the mind -- as the energy flow in the lower attempts to return to its source in the upper.  It has often been stated that men have a sexual thought every 20 seconds -- and while the research varies, the cause of this is because all thinking is generated in that area of mind associated with the genitals and man's lower nature.

In the case of undeveloped organic natural man, as the thought-charged bio-energy begins to arise within the mind, we see a separation in the Foundation sphere.  Why is there a separation?  Why can't the thoughts arise and develop through the center?  And is instead channeled into the outer column?   Because our culture and academia has only permitted the Liner-Logic aspects of mind to develop -- thereby suppressing the development of man's Intuitive abilities.  With the problem being that in order for the thoughts and impressions generated in the lower spheres of mind to return to the Source in what is personified as the Heavenly Kingdom, the Thoughts/Impressions MUST acquire Wholeness in the Intellect Sphere -- and if the Thought/Impression fails to manifest Wholeness, the bio-energy is lost into Nature.  And it is this necessary Wholeness that the Gospel account of Jesus made reference to in the statement of reality that few people today understand: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  In order to even begin to evolve and gain access to the Center (Core of the Tree of Life), the division of the male/female interaction must become both merged and raised up first in the Foundation Sphere where the division takes place, and then in the subsequent spheres of the Center Column of the Tree of Life. 

The article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, an ultra-important statement is made that 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”.  The problem is that the (male) Linear/Logic spheres of mind look outwardly into the images of this world -- and it is the (feminine) Intuitive spheres of mind that have the innate ability to look and perceive inwardly -- with the process of  "the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” being brought about ONLY through the direct interaction of the male/female Linear/Intuitive spheres of mind that with development, have the ability to bring about the necessary Wholeness of Mind that possesses the ability to initiate mental and spiritual maturity -- and with the transformation of the body, initiate the subsequent stages of birth portrayed in Gospel of Thomas saying 22: "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."

From a holographic perspective, each of the spheres of mind possess the pattern of the whole within each of the twelve -- which means that within the Linear-Logic sphere of mind, there is an inner aspect of linear-logic and intuition within that Linear-Logic sphere of mind.  Which means that the vast majority of women who have been taught and molded by out culture and academia to think in a linear-mindset in competition with men, end up with the problem portrayed in the above quotation out of the book Brain Sex which states: "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 result is that the channeling of all thoughts and impressions through the opposite paths within the Linear-Logic sphere of mind, not only inhibits the development of the Feminine Intuitive spheres of mind -- causing women to think in the manner of what the book portrays as "...surrogate masculinity"    -- but this rejection of everything truly feminine inhibits the development of mind beyond the lowest levels of human consciousness and thinking -- a suppressed condition of mind portrayed as an  "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending man's own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality. 

In the parable of the prodigal son, the squandering away of the "inheritance" of the prodigal son because of "riotous living" in this, the Far Country, is the loss of bio-energy into Nature that cannot return to its Source as the vital life-force arises through the mind in the form of Thoughts/Impressions that lack Wholeness.  And when the allegorical account in Genesis states that those who eat the fruit of the Tree of Duality will die, the reference is being made to the divided male/female reality that inhibits all growth and development.  And unless each person begins to nourish their mind by consuming the fruit of the Tree of Life, it will remain impossible for them to achieve the necessary Wholeness to enter into Life -- with Life from a Gospel perspective being portrayed as Complete and the prodigal son's restoral to the Edenic Kingdom. 

Thus, the problem is that the (male) Linear/Logic spheres of mind which is predominant in organic natural man, will dismiss whatever is not seen and understood outwardly -- thereby suppressing mental development and making Wholeness impossible.   And while woman is the embodiment of the Intuitive spheres of mind, woman's innate Intuitive potential remains untapped and undeveloped in a male-oriented world.  There are many instances where we can observe the total rejection of the Intuitive by the Linear/Logic -- thereby rendering these people mentally and intellectually impotent.  In the same way that birth can only be physically initiated through the merge of (male) sperm and (female) ovum in the formation of an embryo, holographically the same is true in the development of mind and the next stage of Soul-Birth, and the spiritual development that brings about Spiritual-Birth.   With the division of what is personified in the allegorical account of Adam and Eve (see below The Restoral Of Adam And Eve), woman is representative of the embodiment of the Intuitive spheres of mind -- the suppression of which is responsible for the mental impotence and flat-lining of the (male) Linear/Logic spheres of mind -- which is ultimately responsible for shackling mankind in this, the Far Country (aka the Outer Darkness of mind and being and Plato's Cave of Illusions).   

  Women Who Promote Feminine Gender Abuse: When rightly understood from a higher enlightened perception of man's reality, women can't be equal by competing with men -- but in contradistinction, women can only be equal by fully embracing their feminine nature, and by being everything that men cannot be.  Which means that women will have to themselves be those who teach and convey to men, their unique abilities that not only make them opposite to men -- but are necessary for men and women to manifest Completion and Wholeness.   Which means that women will have to begin to oppose being defined by a male perception of intellect.   By their very biological nature, most men are incapable of Inward Intuitive Perception.  All learning to them is from an external source.  Women, on the other hand, possess greatly important Intuitive Insights that most men in their natural organic state of mind, are incapable of comprehending. 

In the introduction to the scripture, Secrets of Mary Magdalene, Prof. Elain Pagels 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.  

As with all the names and accounts of people used as symbols and catalysts in the allegorical scriptures, biblical figures such as Mary Magdalene are not the personification of an actual historical person -- but rather, the personification of a realty of Mind and Consciousness.   And what is being portrayed is the raising up and development of the (feminine) intuitive aspects of the disciples own mind.    Mary Magdalene is portrayed as the “'virgin who came down' from heaven", indicating the purity of the Feminine that is undefiled by the Linear-Logic and the thinking of this world.   A woman who has been taught to think and function in a linear-logical framework of mind with the suppression and atrophy of her natural intuitive abilities -- remains incapable of tapping into man's Higher Inner Reality that few men possess the intuitive vision to understand -- and are often totally reliant upon women to develop their own intuitive perspective-vision and understanding of man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.     

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 same way that the allegorical portrayal of 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 spheres of mind, the linear-rational spheres which only senses outwardly, arrives at 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.  

  Mystics Perception - Women Created On A Higher Plane Than Men: As explored in the above, the question which must be understood is why many mystics affirm that in the separation of what is personified as AdamEve in the manifestation of Adam and Eve, woman was created (manifest) on a Higher Plane than man, because she is positively charged at the breasts -- thereby making her organically function from a higher plane of mind (see above Positive At The Breasts).  Where a male is polarized positive in the genitals and lower (animal) nature -- which provides him greater strength and power -- this bio-energy or vital life-force that is needed to be focused inwardly in the develop the mind, is expressed outwardly and lost into nature.  While women possess the greater power to access inwardly -- and this inward perception enables the feminine to perceive many of the causal-factors of life that her male counterpart is virtually blind to -- because her intuitive-perception lacks the necessary Wholeness, woman's greater intuitive-perception is often incomplete -- and at times misleading -- making absolutely no sense to the male-linear (outward) perception of reality.   

In the diagram at the left, men who are genetically "XY", are portrayed as relying totally upon the left-hemisphere of the brain in their very Linear perception of life.   Woman, on the other hand, who is genetically "XX", is better able to utilize both hemispheres of the brain.  But because both the male and female lack the necessary Wholeness to both develop the mind to perceive mankind's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality, they remain intellectually divided. 

Few men are able to comprehend that women see and understand the world from a very different and often opposite paradoxical perspective.   Fewer men yet are able to comprehend that this opposite and opposing feminine perspective is as valid as their own.   And while there are crossover men and women who can appreciate the opposite gender perspective, few of them possess the transformative power of the merger of opposites that must be equally balanced.    Modern science has begun to recognize that all individual cells possess a consciousness.  Thus, in the same way that an ovum and sperm would possess a level of consciousness in accord with that level of being, mankind who can be holographically portrayed as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm, possess a level and consciousness which we associate with the organic "natural" consciousness of mankind that Paul portrayed as an "animal-soul" level of being that is incapable of comprehending man's own higher Soul-Reality.  In fact, all the countless unanswered questions about life exist as an unanswerable enigma, because mankind dwells in abject ignorance -- and especially self-ignorance.  In the case of mankind, in the same way that when the sperm and ovum merge into an embryo, rapid development can begin and prepare for the process of birth, this same merging of the divided male and female halves in necessary to bring about the mental-development and the next stage of birth. 

From a holographic perspective, if you understand the pattern of the physical -- as in the reality that what is true of the Macrocosm, is true of the microcosm -- then what is true of physical conception and the process of growth and development, is also true on all succeeding levels of Creation.  What this means is that if a sperm and ovum fails to join, it cannot evolve beyond that level.   Further, if the 23 pairs of chromosomes are not matched with 23 chromosomes from the father paired with 23 from the mother -- therefore creating a perfect balance of male and female essence that has become WHOLE and ONE, the embryo will be genetically deformed and will either miscarry, or will be born with a genetic disorder.   And what our modern culture remains totally ignorant of, is the fact that the same dynamic pattern of Natural Laws is as true on a mental-level, as it is on a physical-level.   

In order for the mind to develop beyond an immature level of perceptive-thinking, there MUST be a higher quality and even intimate interaction between the (male) Linear/Logic and (feminine) Intuitive spheres of mind.  Einstein correctly 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".  And while woman is the embodiment of the Intuitive -- and many good marriages exist between husbands and wives -- the fact that neither the men or women in our modern plastic culture have any understanding of their own true potential -- and fail to understand the higher purpose of the male and female relationship beyond sex , procreation and emotional attachments -- mankind remains shackled to lives of ignorance and total alienation from their own true Soul-Reality.   And because of their ignorance of the higher purpose and potential of their gender opposites, they remain unable to evolve the relationship beyond the physical. 

From the perspective of the development of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life, the mind and consciousness of mankind is limited by the interaction of the Male-Linear and Feminine-Intuitive Spheres of Mind -- which are the foundations of the outer male and female columns that represent the Tree of Duality.   And it is the open interaction of the outer male and female columns, which have the potential to bring together the paradoxical opposites of the higher spiritual and lower earthly Centers of Mind and Being -- merging the Four Trinities that make up the mind, in the Center were the next stage of birth is initiated.   Across the columns in the diagram at the right, the Logic and Intuition spheres are the male and female opposites of man's physical nature that have the Foundation sphere as their third-force balance.   The Understanding and Wisdom are the male and female opposites of man's upper spiritual nature with the Knowledge sphere as their third-force balance.   The Center which is also the balance between the physical and spiritual trinities, is the male Judgment and female Mercy with the Love sphere as their third-force balance.   In fact, when the Gospels portray LOVE, the reference is being made to the bio-energy and vital life-force that can only be achieved when this center LOVE sphere is open and providing access to the Inner Kingdom.  

In addition to the above nine (9) spheres of mind, there are the upper most (male) Heavenly Kingdom and its female paradoxical opposite of the Earthly Kingdom, and the Intellect sphere which is the third-force balance that is crucial to understand.   Intellect, is not a measure of IQ -- but rather, the application of knowledge in a person's actions and deeds -- and can be portrayed as the physical body in which all the other spheres of mind must function through in the application of the Higher Knowledge of the Tree of Life -- which proper application causes the bio-energy or vital life-force to return through the person to their Source -- thereby not squandering away our inheritance on the "riotous living" of the prodigal son -- enabling the person to utilize their Divine Inheritance in the development of their mind and being.     @@@

In their original purpose and objective, the scriptures are a text-book that is used in the development of mind to attain an enlightened condition -- enabling the seeker to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom through what is portrayed as the "narrow gate" ( "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it" Matt 7:13-14)  -- and this "narrow gate" is not in the outer world, because it is representative of the opening of the mind to gain entrance to the Inner Kingdom that is not of this world.  That the scriptures are a text-book used by the seeker to develop the mind into an enlightened and Anointed state, and gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom, it is then understood that from this higher perspective, sex must be revered and understood as a spiritual sacrament within the covature of a Divine Marriage.  And only when this interaction of male/female opposite polarities is understood, can we begin to understand woman as the "help-meet" and primary savior of man (see Woman As Man's Help-Meet And Savior ).   Why?  As stated in the above, woman not only completes man -- but becomes a surrogate for the man's feminine nature that enables his development through the deepening and expansion of mind -- which brings about both his and her higher spiritual development.   In the same way that a man is totally dependent upon woman to manifest his offspring, the male is virtually totally dependent upon the feminine in order to bring about the development, deepening and expansion of mind, which is absolutely necessary to initiate and bring about the next stage of birth -- i.e., "Jesus answered and said to him, Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3).  In the same way that unless the male-sperm and the female-ovum combine into a Whole Embryo and develop through the stages that permits birth, the same is holographically true of man and woman as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm on the next mental-level of development and birth.   

An interesting statement was made by Niels Bohr, the renowned physicist who once responded to his son's complaints about the obtuse nature of certain concepts in physics by saying (Quoted from The Monroe Institute Of Applied Sciences): "'You are not thinking, you are merely being logical.' The physics of altered human consciousness deals with some conceptualizations that are not easily grasped or visualized exclusively in the context of ordinary 'left brain' linear thinking. So, to borrow Dr. Bohr's mode of expression, parts of this paper will require not only logic but a touch of right brain intuitive insight to achieve a complete comfortable grasp of the concepts involved. Nevertheless, once that is done, I am confident that their construction and application will stand up to the test of rational critique."   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 countless books, rote memorization 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 (see Animal-Soul Consciousness).    And it is this suppression of the (feminine) Intuitive that has the effect of inhibiting true-thought and the ability of the mind to truly begin to think.   Without the interactive influx of the Linear and Intuitive spheres of mind, the logical thinking of man will remain flat-lined and mentally disenfranchised from man's own higher reality -- unable to grasp the true totality of what he sees.   From the perspective of the modern physicist, that part of us that we see is very much the "blemish" within the greater Ætheric Field of the self -- i.e., quoting physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about 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.”   Man's reality is that his physical senses and his outward-looking Linear spheres of mind can only perceive what is portrayed as the ‘blemish’ -- remaining blind to the Source in the "underlying field that can only be perceived by the Intuitive spheres of Mind -- and only understood when their exists an evolved balance between the Linear and Intuitive spheres of mind.  Which is why Niels Bohr said to his son who was a student of physics, that so long as he attempted to perceive the finding of modern physics from a Linear perspective, he will lack the necessary thinking to comprehend what he perceives from a Linear perspective.     

Which provokes a number of great looming questions: What we are presented with are a number of paradoxes that have confronted man since he first stepped foot on the earth.   Thus, if we are to escape the shackles of constrained and limited linear-logical thinking, 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 can and 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? Contrary to the popular misuse of the scriptures which are not at all historical accounts -- but rather allegorical accounts of mind and consciousness that employ symbols and catalysts to connect the person we are in this world with our Inner Knowing Self using the process of Anamnesis -- i.e., The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths:  Yet, our spiritually disenfranchised religions and our faux-educational systems inhibit the development of the Intuitive Spheres of Mind that are necessary to evolve the mind beyond the level of  Animal-Soul Consciousness

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 order to achieve the evolved and transformed Oneness that Jesus stated was required to enter the Inner Kingdom.  

The proper development of the mind to break the natural barrier of what can be called organic human limitations, is dependent upon the interaction of the linear and intuitive spheres of mind.   But when the intuitive perception is inhibited, and development is suppressed, even the linear is flat-lined from any development beyond what is portrayed in the Gospels as carnal and restricted consciousness.    The linear mind of man remains limited in its development, because the intuitive remains infantile and shackled in a captive environment where it is only permitted to express itself in linear terms.  While the inward looking intuitive has the potential to access higher consciousness and states of mind and being, it is unable to arise to its intended potential because of the shackles placed upon it by a thoroughly domineering and controlling linear culture.    Like a woman who in many Islamic cultures are forced to dwell in an imprisoned world beneath a Burka -- not permitted to openly express herself except when accompanied by a male relative -- totally deprived of the ability to openly speak on her own behalf -- the natural expression of the intuitive mind has been so impeded by our linear-driven culture, that it has remained undeveloped and unreliable as a resource (see Opening And Unlocking the Mind).   Because the male-linear as portrayed as the portrayal of Peter takes the position that "...These are certainly strange ideas", when the perceptions of the feminine-intuitive is encountered, the merger of impressions can never be brought about -- thus, flat-lining the union at a very low-self carnal perception of man's true reality.  
 

The Twelve Within The Twelve: Holographically, the pattern of the whole is replicated into each of the individual twelve spheres of mind as represented in the Image of the Tree of Life at the right.   Why is this important to understand?  What this means is that 1/12th of each sphere, is the vibration of the bottom Earthly (carnal/organic) Kingdom sphere.  And in the physical union of man and women, the energy that arises through the mind as represented in the pattern of the Tree of Life, is limited to the carnal/organic 1/12th of each of the upper spheres.   Thus, with the exception of the exchange of energies, no meaningful expansion of mind can take place -- and the vast majority of bio-energy or vital life-force, is lost into Nature.   Which means that the vast majority of the marriages of man remain physically-organic -- serving sexual, emotional and family-raising aspects of humanity.    

What does it mean that as the vital life-force is raised up through the mind of man, the energies are restricted only to the earth-element in each of the higher spheres of mind?  More importantly is the fact that in (carnal) organic man, because of the holographic twelve within the twelve, the whole of the person's thinking and perception of reality is limited to that Earth-sphere.   Which is why the multitude of people are portrayed as blind and unable to comprehend the concepts and teachings pertaining to the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom (see Gospel Mysteries).    And why in the Gospel account, the majority of people are portrayed as being "without" -- and because they dwell at an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness that is ruled over they their lowre animal nature (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ), and only capable of being taught in the enigma of parables, while those who have embraced the process of transformation were spoken of as being In The House (see In The House).   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 "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 And Unloose The Mind).

 

  Oneness In The Third-Force Morphic Field: In the same way that it is the joining of the generative essence of the mother and father that forms the one-cell embryo, it is the interaction of the chromosomes derived from the father which interact with the chromosomes derived from the mother within the embryo in the process of expansion, which forms the body-vessel on the next level of the holographic reality.  What this means is that the vital life-force from the male interacts with that of the female, bringing about the uniting and expansion of mind -- creating the Third-Force of higher reality as portrayed in the image on the right.   And this manifests what is portrayed above as the "morphic field" (see Gender Blindness And The Process Of Birth) that creates an atmosphere like environment of mind and spirit that immerses the male and female halves that make the husband and wife "one flesh".    And as the husband and wife begin the alchemical process of expansion and deepening of mind and being, instead of the bio-energy being lost into nature, the vital life-force is instead channeled within the body and mind of the joined husband and wife, and is instead utilized to bring about the transformative next stage of birth that was portrayed by Jesus as necessary to entering the Kingdom -- i.e., ultimately permitting and bringing about the return of the prodigal son to his Source.  

The Gospel of the Nazirenes preserves an important teaching that was removed from the scriptures published by the Church.   In this saying reference is made to the preservation of the male seed -- i.e., "My work is to teach and to heal the children of men, and he that is born of God keeps his seed within him."  Why keep one's seed within one's self?   That seed is the power of regeneration -- and, as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son, one can squander it away on "riotous living" in this, the Far Country -- or one can utilize this bio-energy for the regeneration of self.   In view of the fact that the male retains the original pattern of "XY" (whereas, woman is "XX"), there exists the prospect of self-generation.   But this is very difficult -- and is totally contrary to the Laws of Nature.   Far more easy is to live as husband and wife in a Divinely Consecrated Marriage, where the seed/bio-energy is totally utilized within the construct of the Union for the expansion and deepening of the man and woman's mind and being.  

As stated in the above, in the conception of the physical body in the form of the embryo in one's mother's womb, prior to the actual conception where the sperm and ovum merge into a single cell embryo, the sperm and ovum must split in order to retain the human 46 chromosomes-- i.e., 23 from the mother, and 23 from the father.   But this 46 chromosome limit while in a divided state, limits the person to that level which can be portrayed as organic human consciousness.   Further, from the perspective of a holographic allegorical pattern, the initial splitting of the sperm and ovum can (within the pattern) be portrayed as the separation of Adam and Eve within the physical womb of the mother.   In contradistinction, when a husband and wife enter into a Divine Marriage -- creating a Morphic Field that forms a type of atmosphere in which they personally dwell -- a Morphic Field that insulates them from the rest of mankind -- they are then returned to the original 92 chromosomes which, prior to splitting to bring about human conception, can be portrayed as "XYXX".   And it is the interaction of the husband and wife on this 96 chromosome level of being within the Embryo of the Morphic Field which was formed by the Divine Marriage, that enables the husband and wife to expand beyond the organic human level of consciousness -- as stated in the 22nd saying of the Gospel of Thomas in the words: 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".  

Holographically, the physical MUST be understood as the pattern of all the levels of higher reality.  Therefore, in the same way that the physical offspring of man and woman begins in the generative organs, so too does the thoughts of man and woman.  The Mind of man is in the Ætheric bodies which surround the physical -- and this is why the mind can become disconnected from the physical in a Near Death Experience (NDE) or Out of Body Experience (OOBE) -- as presented at The Folly Of The NDE Critic.  Anyone who has experienced an NDE or an OOBE recognizes that not only does their mind function when detached or disconnected from the physical body, but their perception and cognitive thinking is often greatly elevated when the mind is no longer anchored to the physical body.  The brain is therefore a power center in the body that the mind uses to express itself in the physical -- but so too is the opposite polarity and power center in the organs of generation.   In the diagram and pattern of the spheres of mind at the right, in the same way that the left and right columns are (equal) opposites, so too is the upper top most and the bottom sphere polarity opposites -- each being half of the other polarity -- as portrayed in the above saying in the Gospel of Thomas: "When you make the two one, ...and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female (right and left columns) one and the same (in the Center), so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom".   And in accord with the holographic pattern, in the same way that the physical offspring is an expression of the organs of generation, so too are the thoughts of man conceived in that area of the mind.  

In Organic Man, the flow of vital life-force associated with the generation of thoughts begins in the lower Earth Sphere in the pattern presented at the right, and this vital life-force rises up into the Foundation Sphere where it is then tested.   The Foundation Sphere is connected to the Soul-Matrix, and is the seat of who you are based upon the accomplishments of all the past lives that your higher Soul-Self has lived (see Soul-Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral).    The Foundation Sphere can be portrayed as being strongly influenced by what can be called each person's Spiritual DNA.   The Church Father Origen wrote that: “Every Soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).   Those Souls who have accomplished much in their past, will be able to conserve and channel more vital life-force within themselves -- through the Center Spheres of Mind that are the Balance of the outer Linear/Intuitive Columns -- thereby possessing greater insight and understanding of what they see and understand.    Those who can be portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son as having squandered away their inheritance on "riotous" living -- expelling their Generative-Power and bio-energy on the things of this world -- because the energy can't be balanced in the Center (Tree of Life), it moves out into the lower spheres of the Tree of Duality.   And if it is (male) Earth-Logic or (feminine) Earth-Intuition, it lacks the balance to be channeled within, and the bio-energy becomes lost into Nature.   Thus, the outer columns of the Tree of Life which are representative of the Tree of Duality, generate thoughts and impressions that are portrayed in the allegory of Genesis as the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality that the eating of which brings death.   Why?   Because of their incomplete and divided nature -- being half of their opposite polarity (male or female).   

As stated in the above, the Linear-Logic which is male, and the Intuitive which is female, not only perceives the world differently, but often from opposite and sometimes conflicting perspectives.   Yet with all paradoxical opposites, each side of the equation is not only equally valid -- but in the Divine Design is intended to be resolved when the third-force balance of Mind (in the Center) is elevated to a higher plane.    And when rightly understood, all man and woman need is each other -- developing and raising up both the Linear and the Intuitive into a state of Mental and Spiritual to where the Third-Force of Mind exists on a Higher Enlightened Plane.

  Lack of Development Beyond The Organic: The question can rightly be asked: Why don't we observe this higher development of mind among the vast majority of married couples?   In the undeveloped mind, the Generative-Power and bio-energy or vital life-force rises up only through the earth-sphere of each of the twelve spheres of mind -- thereby limiting the consciousness of the person to earth-consciousness (see above Twelve Within The Twelve).   Thus, holographically, 1/12th of each of the upper spheres is of the earth-vibration and consciousness.   In much the same way, because the interaction of male and female in our culture is only on a sexual or emotional level, no higher level of interaction can take place.   By remaining carnal or organic, only 1/12th of each sphere is utilized.   The process of expansion and deepening of the mind, is intended to develop each of the 11/12ths of each sphere of mind beyond the organic earth-level of consciousness -- thereby enabling the person (man and woman) to utilize those higher spheres of mind beyond the earth-limitations.   But because the thinking and lifestyle of the person remains carnal, their perception and thoughts remain attached to the earth -- keeping them virtually blind to all higher realities beyond the earth-vibration. 

The Tree of Duality (aka Knowledge of Good and Evil) is named as such, because the gender-based impressions of man and woman are opposite polarities that are each representative of 1/3rd of the Whole.    In the Triangle on the right, male and female can be portrayed as the opposite outer points on the horizontal line -- each thought and impression polarized to opposite and often conflicting perceptions of reality -- each needed to complete its opposite.   In an organic relationship, the third-force balance is on the same horizontal plane, and in most instances, is predominated by either the feminine or masculine outer columns or points of the Tree of Duality.   In the diagram at the right, the angles that form the Triangle are representations of the Laws that bring about balance on a higher plane and Wholeness/Completion -- which must be represented in the threefold equality of the angles or Laws.   Consensus between male/female is not enough.   Neither is agreement.  The duality of the male/female thoughts and impressions must become elevated and matured in their interaction on a higher plane.  Quoting from The Opening And Unlocking Of The Mind:

 

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 behavior 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 vice versa.

From the perspective reality of the Tree of Duality, the perceptive-impressions of man and woman are representative of 1/3rd of the Whole -- and without the developmental balance that elevates them above the organic horizontal level, no real growth, expansion or deepening of mind can be brought about.  And it is this limiting factor that keeps man and woman earth-bound, that is the reason for the male/female divided realities of mind to be portrayed as the Forbidden Fruit of the Tree of Duality.

  The Restoral Of Adam And Eve: In the allegorical account of Genesis, 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 form 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.    Yet, in order to evolve an bring about the necessary growth and development that initiates mental and spiritual maturity, the opposite polarities of male and female had to interact with each other.   And it was the Laws of Creation that brought this separation about as personified in the second chapter of Genesis (see The Laws Of Creation).   Which means that in order to bring about the expansion and deepening of mind beyond the organic "animal-soul" level of consciousness (see Animal-Soul), the opposite polarities personified in the allegorical account of Adam and Eve, must be brought together and reformed into the original non-dualist pattern of Adam/Eve.   To accomplish this within a Divine Marriage or Union, the women must become a surrogate for the man's feminine nature that has been suppressed by his positively charged generative power.  

In the scriptures there is a focus on sexual purity and virginity (see Sexual Immorality).   Which provokes the question as to why does the scriptures require sexual purity between husband and wife.   In the previous link is the statement "Never Have Sex With Someone You Don't Want To Become".   And the fact is explored that in sexual congress, the woman becomes part of the man she has sex with -- on a deeper level receiving his thoughts and impressions -- which, from the perspective of a Divine Marriage and the restoral of Adam and Eve within the man and woman in a union, defiles the woman and in most instances, renders her incapable to becoming a surrogate for her husbands suppressed and innate feminine nature.   And because her mind is reflecting the thoughts and impressions of many men, it becomes extremely difficult for her to reflect, raise up, and transform the thoughts and impressions of her husband -- which from the perspective of the Natural Laws of Creation, is her Divine Purpose of being. 

In many ways a husband and wife can be thought of as the two halves of a single heart -- functioning together as One in order to supply the needs of the whole body.   The heart and the blood brings life-giving oxygen and food to every cell of the body -- removing the toxins after the life-giving nourishment has been delivered.   Without the heart and living-giving nourishment the blood delivers, nothing else in the body can function.  If the heart is defective, and replaced with a surrogate heart from a donor, without drugs to suppress the natural immune system of the body, the heart will be rejected and rendered totally disfunctional.   When a woman has been defiled by a multitude of sexual partners -- each of which remains connected to her and is bombarding her with foreign thoughts and impressions from outside the Union, it is this defilement that renders her disfunctional from a higher mental and spiritual perspective.   Therefore, unless the man and woman has a long and elevated history spanning lifetimes of achievement together which they have brought into the union in the present, the union itself will remain impotent and even flat-lined from a higher spiritual perspective as portrayed in the scriptures.    Which provokes the question that every woman must ask herself as to what is she bringing to her husband on their wedding night?   If all her husband is looking for is a sexual and emotional partner where the two build a worldly life together, then her defiled condition is not as important to the relationship.   A donor heart that is supported by immune suppressant drugs, serves the purpose of keeping the person physically alive.  But if the objective is a Divine Marriage that can restore the separated Adam and Even -- enabling the husband and wife to achieve the next stage of birth -- then the essence and spiritual purity of the Union becomes a paramount reality.   And from the perspective of the Gospel teachings, the purity of the Union is of paramount importance -- i.e., "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" - (see Matt 5:27-28).  

Therefore, if sexual purity was not an important issue from the perspective of the Gospel and the teachings of the New Covenant, then Jesus never would have made this statement on adultery.   Why did he make such a statement condemning our modern culture of recreational sex?   Because unless the woman can become "one flesh" with her husband -- thereby becoming a surrogate for his suppressed feminine/intuitive nature -- then the marriage union will remain spiritually flat-lined and of this world.   Quoting from the opening of this article (see The Process of Birth Within The Tree of Life):

In the same way that men and women are polarized opposite polarities, their inherent gender weaknesses, needs and desires are also opposite.    Men are polarized positive at the genitals -- which empowers the lower animal nature (see Organic Man Controlled By His Lower Animal Nature) -- and is often totally controlled and consumed by his need to fulfill the appetites of his lower nature.  What this means is that while men are easily controlled by the often unmanageable flow of vital (sexual) life-force that flows from his genital regions, women, on the other hand, are polarized opposite in the genitals, and thus are able to exert a greater amount of control with respect to their sexuality.  On the other hand, women's breasts which, unlike the animal kingdom are perpetually enlarged because her body serves a higher purpose than just providing nourishment for infants, is polarized positive in this area of mind. This positive polarization is often seen as being over emotional, sensitive, and much more feeling than her male counterpart who perceives life through the vision of linear mathematical logic. Thus, the male is polarized negative at that level of mind that corresponds to the breast, in order to receive this higher and more refined vital life-force back from his wife -- thereby creating a circle between them that initiates mental/spiritual development and the birth of the child of Truth within the two that are One.   Jewish Mysticism (Kabbalah) teaches the woman was created and exists on a higher plane than her male counterpart -- and this is true because of her positive polarity that is manifest on a higher level of mind.  
Look around you at the world and you will observe the male's absolute fixation on women's breasts.  Why?  Not because of their desire to nurse as some of our psychologists have reasoned -- but rather, because they possess an absolute need for the vital life-force energy from that region of mind where women are polarized positive.  The problem is that because they fail to comprehend the Divine Pattern, and do not realize that they can only receive this vital life-force from a Wife in a Genuine Marriage -- and most women whose thinking and lifestyle have been molded by our culture and modern society are (sexually) polluted and cannot provide the man the mental/spiritual nourishment that they (men) crave (see Sexual Immorality  http://SoulSelf.org#SexualImmorality ), men often perpetually look to other women in search of what they can only receive from just one who is their genuine wife.
            

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 initiates Wholeness Manifest.   The forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (a.k.a. Knowledge of Good and Evil) that brings death to the eater thereof, is representative of the divided male and female impressions and thoughts that cannot be transformed and brought to the Highest Level of the Fruit of the Tree of Life. 

    Evolving The Mind Beyond The Organic Human Level: In the article on Christian Mysticism, the Encyclopedia Britannica writes regarding the first to second century elder Valentinus who was considered orthodox in the beginning of the second century, and states: “He believed that human beings are alienated from God because of their spiritual ignorance; Christ brings them into the gnosis (esoteric revelatory knowledge) that is union with God. Valentinus held that all human beings come from God and that all will in the end return to God. Other Gnostic groups held that there were three types of people -- 'spiritual,' 'psychic,' and 'material' -- and that only the first two can be saved. The Pistis Sophia… is preoccupied with the question of who finally will be saved. Those who are saved must renounce the world completely and follow the pure ethic of love and compassion. They will then be identified with Jesus and become rays of the divine Light”.   While this reality may sound foreign and strange to the modern Christian, it is in fact parallel to the parable of the prodigal son.    But since the modern Christian rejects the important teaching on the pre-existent Soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many lifetimes -- because they adhere to the doctrines of a Circus Prostitute (see The Ten Reasons Why Christians Reject The Pre-Existent Soul) -- they remain hopelessly lost in the quagmire of this world of the "outer darkness" (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ).  

Paul correctly stated that the faith-based Christians who are totally versed in what he called the (historical) "traditions of Jesus and him crucified", were too carnal to receive the Spiritual Manna or Gnosis.   Paul portrayed the baptized and committed Christians as still being of an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness who were incapable of receiving the Divine Manna or Gnosis.   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.   Which profound statement provokes the question: What is meant by the term that Paul used when he described the very people who he had himself taught who were incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom when he portrayed them as being of a "natural" organic level of mind and consciousness?   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 states of this 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" -- wherein the proper interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man is then presented: [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 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 stated had 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).  (see also Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature - and - Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalSacrifice ).   

The question must be asked: Why can't the "natural" mind of man comprehend the higher reality of the Soul, the spiritual meaning of the Gospel, and the Mysteries of the Kingdom?   Why can someone who is educated in our traditionally cultural manner -- who has attended our finest universities and studied under the world's most esteemed teachers -- be portrayed as being mentally flat-lined and spiritually impotent?   Because when the pattern of mind is rightly understood, it is divided across the spectrum of four mental-trinities which comprise the mind as patterned in the diagram of the Tree of Life -- with the Feminine Intuitive Column being limited by the three Linear-Male Spheres which are paradoxical opposites within the Divine Pattern of Mind and Being -- and this reality of Mind is demonstrated in saying 22 of the Gospel of Thomas which reads: 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."  This Original Teaching that was suppressed by the Gentile Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, can only be understood within the spectrum of the pattern of the Tree of Life -- and therefore, it has little to no meaning to modern man.  And unless each person brings the reality portrayed in this teaching about in their own Mind and Being, they will remain mentally flat-lined and spiritually impotent -- incapable of advancing beyond the level of what the Apostle Paul portrayed as that of an "animal-Soul" level of comprehension (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature). 

A most important teaching has been preserved in the Gospel of Philip where it states: "There are two trees growing in Paradise. One bears animals, the other bears men. Adam ate from the tree which bore animals. He became an animal and he brought forth animals. For this reason the children of Adam worship animals. The tree whose fruit Adam ate is the Tree of Knowledge. That is why sins increased. If he ate the fruit of the other tree, that is to say, the Tree of Life, the one which bears men, then the gods would worship man. For in the beginning God created man. But now men create God. That is the way it is in the world – men make gods and worship their creation. It would be fitting for the gods to worship men!"   The Soul of man is asexual -- i.e., a Being of Light that is the perfect balance of male and female in accord with the Divine Pattern of Creation (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- and as a Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ), the Source of Soul-Light is in fact that harmony and balance of Paradoxical Opposites (see The Source Of Soul-Light http://SoulSelf.org/#SourceOfSoulLight ).    As explored throughout the above article, all growth, development of mind and spiritual evolution is through the interaction of male/female opposites on all levels of our Being.   In the same way that the embryo implanted in a woman's womb is the joining of sperm and ovum -- and the fact that when we are born into this realm which is the next stage of Cosmic Womb (see Mental Womb http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#MentalWomb ) -- we can only expand the mind beyond the "animal-Soul" level of consciousness through the direct interaction of the male/female columns of the Tree of Knowledge -- which is the outer divided columns of the Tree of Life.   Why?  Because the lower nature of mankind is a reflective (feminine) opposite of our higher spiritual nature that can only be brought into Oneness by bringing the outer paradoxical opposite columns of the Tree of Knowledge together into the Tree of Life in the Center.   

When the Gospel of Philip states that the Tree of Knowledge bears animals -- i.e., "One bears animals" -- what is being stated is so long as the division of these male/female columns continue to exist -- which makes it impossible for the Heavenly and Earthly Kingdoms to be brought together -- the development of mind will remain inhibited and flat-lined -- incapable of comprehending man's higher Soul-Realty.   Without the interaction and re-merger of the male/female energies of the Tree of Knowledge, the consciousness of the person remains organic and what Paul portrayed as at an "animal-Soul" level (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ) -- and the person basically remains controlled by their lower nature and can be portrayed as beasts who walk in the form of man. Which basically means that all the promises of the scriptures do not apply to them -- even when they call themselves Christian.

      

   The Holographic Mind: So long as we continue to believe that the mind of man is in the physical brain -- failing to understand that the mind surrounds the person in their Ætheric Field that can be thought of as the life-giving and maintaining mental-atmosphere that surrounds the physical form as portrayed in the image on the left -- it will remain virtually impossible for man to even begin to fulfill the adage to Know Thyself.   The Wisdom of Mystics and those who have overcome and conquered self, convey the reality that the mind has twelve spheres of influence -- comprised of four trinities made up of male and female opposite polarities and a third-force balance that can be portrayed as the offspring of the male/female opposites -- i.e., "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   In accord with the Holographic Pattern that is replicated into all aspects of Creation, at the right we can see where each of the twelve Spheres of the Tree of Life are themselves imbued with the pattern of the twelve spheres -- i.e., the twelve within each of the twelve -- and as explained in the above (see The Twelve Within The Twelve), organic human consciousness can only utilize 1/12 of each of the primary twelve spheres of mind that comprise the mind as patterned in the Tree of Life (see The Twelve Within The Twelve).   And the statement:  "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:17).   Those who are portrayed as having "overcome", are those who have developed and evolved their mental and spiritual facilities into a Condition of Wholeness and Completion -- and of them it is written: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).   The "hidden manna" of the Kingdom which is the Higher Sacred Knowledge, can only be comprehended by those who are prepared to receive the Truths of all Truths.   

Holographically, the mind surrounds the body in the manner of a life-given atmosphere, and each of the twelve spheres of mind expresses themselves through their associated physical organs of the body.   And if you understand the workings and functioning of a particular organ, you will then be able to better understand the associated sphere of mind that is manifest in the physical and functioning through that organ.  On a physical level, the stomach takes in and digests food for the rest of the body -- while holographically, that part of the mind that takes in knowledge that feeds each of the twelve spheres of mind, is manifest through the stomach.  

Many religions make reference to The Seven Spiritual centers which are manifest in the physical glands of the body, and these Spiritual Centers are the source of bio-energy or vital life-force that is the power source of the person's life and consciousness.    The Spiritual bio-energy or vital life-force then moves out into the twelve spheres of mind that are manifest and working through the organs.   When this pattern is correctly understood, the functioning of the organs can then be used as a blueprint to understand the workings of the mind.   The functioning of each organ is an expression of that area or sphere of mind that manifests  itself through that organ.  A much in-depth exploration of the relationship of man to his Higher Soul-Self -- the relationship of the Seven Spiritual Centers that are manifest in the glands of the body to the Twelve Spheres of Mind -- is available beginning at the subheading Breaking Out Of The Time Continuum Box.    

Paul warns that man in his organic condition of mind, is incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the Soul and the Higher Mysteries of Creation (see Animal-Soul) -- warning that the wisdom based upon organic human thinking will come to naught (1 Cor 2:6).  But even more important is the fact that since all the intellectual, political, religious and philosophical authorities of this world are themselves bound and limited by human organic reasoning, then all knowledge and wisdom acquired from others, are equally earth-bound in their thinking and application of wisdom and knowledge.  Which provokes the question: Why can't we learn and acquire higher knowledge from others?  From man's foremost intellectuals and academa?   And what must a person do to begin to understand what Paul portrays as incomprehensible to the person of organic human consciousness?  To even begin to understand how the mind begins to develop beyond what Paul portrayed as the "animal-Soul" level of consciousness (see Animal-Soul), one must understand the relationship of food and diet to mental-development.   Further, it is important to note that in the blueprint of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life, the acquatition of higher knowledge through the Knowledge Sphere of Mind, is imparted to the Knowledge Sphere dirctly from the Higher Spheres of mind in the pattern.   

The Essenes and the Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of Jesus were strict vegetarians (see The Consecrated Life).   Of the Ebionite Nazirenes the Church Father Epiphanius states: "They are Jews. They use Gospels. Eating meat is abominable to them..." (Panarion, 19:28-30).   Why?   It was for this reason in the Gospel of the Nazirenes that Jesus stated that those believers of the simple faith could not be admitted into the inner core of the New Covenant Communities while still eating the flesh of slain beasts: "And again that one asked, If anyone comes to us who eats flesh and drinks strong drink, how shall we receive them? And Yeshua said to him, Let such a person abide in the outer court until they cleanse themselves from these grosser evils; for till they perceive, and repent of these, they are not fit to receive the higher mysteries." (see Is It God Or Demons You Hear).   The oldest known complete copy of our Gospels is called the Evangelion Da - Mepharresh and in it we find Jesus saying at Luke 21:34: "See that you do not make your minds heavy, to do this, never eat meat or drink wine."    Was this rejection of eating meat an anomaly?  It is written of Jacob who people call James, the brother of Yeshua who is known today as Jesus -- and Jacob being the first leader of the Jerusalem New Covenant Community, that "He drank no wine or strong drink, nor did he eat meat" (Eusibius; Church History).   Of the disciple Matthew it is recorded: "Accordingly, the apostle Matthew partook of seeds, and nuts, and vegetables, without flesh" (Clement of Alexandria; The Instructor).   And in the writings of his disciple Clement, Peter is quoted as stating that "He drank no wine or strong drink, nor did he eat meat."    Epiphanius wrote that the Ebionites claimed that the disciple Peter "...abstained from that which had life in it and from meats, even as they do; and from all other food prepared from flesh" (Panarion 30.15.3 Bk I, Sec. II).   Thomas is spoken of as eating only bread and water (The Acts of Thomas).   While modern Christians don't understand why, there are very important spiritual reasons why the Brother and Disciples of Jesus were all vegetarians. 

Which provokes the question: Why does what a person eat, affect and impact the development of their minds -- to the degree that a person who eats dead flesh is "...not fit to receive the higher mysteries."  That the original people of the New Covenant ate no flesh foods is seen in the words of Peter as preserved in the Clementine Homily 7, chap 4, where it reads: “Wherefore, as then ye were deceived by the forerunner Simon, and so became dead in your Souls to God, and were smitten in your bodies; so now, if you repent, as I said, and submit to those things which are well-pleasing to God, you may get new strength to your bodies, and recover your Soul’s health. And the things which are well-pleasing to God are these: to pray to Him, to ask from Him, recognizing that He is the giver of all things, and gives with discriminating law; to abstain from the table of devils, not to taste dead flesh, not to touch blood; to be washed from all pollution; and the rest in one word, — as the God-fearing Jews"   Equally important is the reference to what Peter portrays as God-fearing Jews, in contradistinction to the sectarian Jewish sects portrayed in the New Testament as Jews of the flesh -- i.e., the Sadducees and Pharisees.  

A most important statement is made by Charles Fillmore who authored The Metaphysical Bible Dictionary -- and who, with his wife, was the founder of Unity Church (see Higher Consciousness - The Effects Of Eating Meat) where he states:

I have in years of experiment tested the effect in mind and body of meat-eating and non-meat-eating, and I feel that I am more competent to judge of the effects than one who theorizes about the question.

Some sixteen years ago [i. e., 1887] when I began the study of Truth I was told that it made no difference what I ate if I was in the right thought. This seemed to prove true up to a certain point in my experience. While my spiritual development was confined to the conscious mind there seemed no special need of food discrimination. But gradually a new phase set in. I found that I was having vibrations in the sympathetic nerve centers — the subconscious mind was being quickened, and I was becoming a conscious vital battery. The vital currents gradually grew stronger and stronger until I could hardly control them. Appetite, passion, emotion, etc., were greatly increased. Then my prayers for guidance were answered and a system of communication set up with the higher realms of consciousness. I was shown that the food that entered the organism had to pass through a process of regeneration every day before it was in condition to be built into the new body of Christ. Just how to carry on this regenerative process in the various subconscious centers was also shown, and here is where I discerned the effects of food in body building.

The vitalizing element in food is contained in the cell, which may be termed a mind battery vibrating with intelligence, force, and substance. These elements are present in the living cell — dead cells are those in which intelligence and force have withdrawn and inanimate substance only remains. Man appropriates these cells and they become part of his consciousness according to his capacity to use them. Those who have not developed the capacity to consciously regenerate the cells get but a small part of their energies. (First published in the October 1903 issue of Unity Magazine, Volume 19, number 4).   On the process of transforming the body in order to enable it to begin to accommodate man's innate higher Soul and spiritual natures, Charles Fillmore wrote: "I can say about flesh eating that the Spirit has shown me repeatedly that I could not refine my body and make it a harmonious instrument for the Soul, so long as I continued to fill it with the cells of dead animals" (The Vegetarian, May, 1920).

In the Pattern of Mind as presented in the diagram of the Tree of Life, Higher Knowledge must come through and from the Higher Spheres of Mind and Spirit -- and without becoming a vegetarian, Charles Fillmore would never have been able to Intuitively access the Source of Higher Knowledge at the Core of his being, and receive the spiritual meaning of the biblical-symbols in the scriptures.   Why is this important?   The scriptural text of the written word itself is allegorical -- so allegorically enigmatic, that Paul was prompted to portray the written text as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).   This great truth is again demonstrated in 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 (see An Inconvenient Truth), 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 (see Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple ) -- 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.   As was taught in the teaching that has been preserved 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 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.

These same truths are again conveyed to us in the words of the Church Historian Eusebius: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”.   What these symbols truly mean is perhaps best expressed by G.R.S. Mead in his celebrated work, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, where he explained that, once properly understood, the true meaning of what is “…projected onto the screen…” of the scriptures, “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds”  That the scriptures are representative of the seekers own blueprint of mind -- allegorically portraying the Forces and Laws that control the Consciousness of mankind -- and that the carnal Jews attempted to interpret the scriptures historically and outwardly -- instead of turning them within their own mind and use the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) -- is the reason that Jesus portrayed the Pharisees as blind guides.

That the scriptures are not at all historical accounts -- but rather, events of the seekers own mind and consciousness -- prompted the Church Father Origen to write that the “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).   What Origen is stating is that countless inconsistencies were intentionally inserted into the literal text of the scriptures, in order to inhibit the intelligent seeker from reading and believing the literal text (see Inconsistencies).  With Origen further explaining that “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.”  And in the Jewish mysticism writing the Zohar it is written: "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. ...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”.  

The most profound statement was made by the Apostle Peter as recorded by his disciple Clement where Peter warns those who attempt to read the scriptures literally: "...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"   Why should the scriptures not be read "...according to the understanding of our own mind"?    And not understood in accord with "an extraneous sense, which you have brought from without"?   It must be noted that from the perspective of the Knowledge Sphere of the Tree of Life, that unless the wisdom and interpretation of the written world is drawn from within, and through the Higher Centers, that it is the (dead) wisdom of this world that comes to naught, because it is earth-bound quasi-reasoning.   One of the most important Original Gospel teachings was that there is only One True Source of Knowledge which the disciples called The True Prophet that is within the mind of the sincere seeker.   Which means that the scriptures must not be understood from an outward perspective -- but with the application of the Key of Knowledge, the scriptures must be turned within one's own mind and being.   Why?   Because the whole of the scriptures are an allegorical presentation using and employing important catalysts that connect the outer physical consciousness of the person we are in this world, with the pre-existing inner Soul and spiritual consciousness (see SoulSelf.org )-- which when rightly understood, is the very essence of the process of anamnesis (see  The Gospels Embody The Principles Of Anamnesis ).  And that the scriptures cannot be interpreted externally -- or, with an interpretation brought from without -- is the reason why it is stated: "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).   Unless the Indwelling Logos portrayed as The True Prophet, opens your mind to the true spiritual meaning, then your interpretation of the scriptures will be counterfeit and in error.   Therefore, when you attempt to learn from others the meaning of the scriptures -- or teach the meaning of the scriptures -- interpreting the scriptures externally in the manner of the Jews who threw away the Key of Knowledge -- you negate and undermine the catalysts and symbols that are contained in the scriptural body, and you inhibit and atrophy the development of those areas of mind that must be developed in order to tap into this inner Source of Knowledge.  Further, this is why Jesus commanded his disciples that they can only have ONE TEACHER -- the True Prophet or Logos -- that dwells within them at the very Core of their Consciousness (see True Prophet).   With respect to this ONE TEACHER that the followers of Jesus were commanded to seek out exclusively, Peter taught that 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."  In their abandonment of the Gospel First Principles and the One Source of the Truth of all Truths that is drawn out through the process of Anamnesis, the modern Christian world has virtually nothing in common with the purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings. 

Without the necessary change in diet, Charles Fillmore never would have been able to embrace the process of Anamnesis -- thereby enabling the Logos/Son of God within him to teach him the meaning of the biblical allegorical symbols -- and he would have remained as blind to the true meaning of the scriptures as is the modern Christian world is today.   What Charles Fillmore based his own above experiences has done, is to confirm the statement preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes -- i.e., "And Yeshua said to them, They, whose hands are stained with blood, or whose mouths are defiled with flesh, or they who partake of benefits which are gotten by wronging one of God's creatures, cannot be righteous; nor can they touch holy things, or teach the mysteries of the kingdom."

Ellen G. White was a visionary that greatly influenced the Seventh Day Adventist Church.  Quoting Mrs. White:  "Vegetables, fruits, and grains should compose our diet. Not an ounce of flesh meat should enter our stomachs. The eating of flesh is unnatural. We are to return to God's original purpose in the creation of man" (see Cleansing The Temple).   And what does the scriptures say with respect to the natural diet of mankind who seeks to return to the Edenic Kingdom?    "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).  

From a Jewish perspective: Quoting the Jewish Vegetarian web site: "Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai and his son Rabbi Eleazar hid in a cave for thirteen years after Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai was condemned to death by the Roman conquerors of Jerusalem for speaking out against them, following the murders of Rabbi Akiva and many others.  While they lived in a cave, they were sustained by their studies of the Torah, a local stream, and a nearby carob tree for their food. These great sages demonstrated that a vegetarian diet, like the manna the Israelites received in the Sinai desert, is enough to sustain a person as well as a people."  

Theosophy: But one of the most important explanations is provided in the Alice Bailey writings where it is written: "One point of interest might here be noted. It is known esoterically that the vegetable kingdom is the transmitter and the transformer of the vital pranic fluid to the other forms of life on our planet. That is its divine and unique function. This pranic fluid, in its form of the astral light, is the reflector of the divine akasha. The second plane therefore reflects itself in the astral plane. Those who seek to read the akashic records, or who endeavour to work upon the astral plane with impunity, and there to study the reflection of events in the astral light correctly, have perforce and without exception to be strict vegetarians."  

The Essential Vegetarian Sufi Diet: It is important to recognize that the core of the Sufis were vegetarian -- and therefore lived the same necessary Consecrated Life set forth by the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus (see The Holographic Mind ).   And as explained in the previous link, the vegetarian diet and the living of the Consecrated Life while seeking the Source of Truth within them, made them able to receive the Higher Knowledge of both the Soul and the Kingdom of God.  Thus, it is stated in the article Sufism and vegetarianism: "Sufism has a deep-rooted belief that vegetarianism is an essential step towards spiritual growth. Sufi saints like Rahim Bawa Mohiyuddin and Hazrat Rabia Basri showed love and compassion to animals and taught that mercy towards them is essential to Islamic mysticism."   The article then goes on and states: "A popular incident in Hazrat Rabia's life goes that whenever she retired to the forest to meditate, she was surrounded by animals and birds. But as soon as another Sufi approached, they ran away, which angered him and he asked her why they did so. In turn, she asked him what he had eaten. He replied that he had eaten onions fried in fat, at which she exclaimed, 'You eat their fat! Why should they not flee from you?'"   The Sufi position that vegetarianism is "...an essential step towards spiritual growth", confirms the in-depth explanation of body, mind and spirit presented in this article.     

Mohammed is quoted saying (see Vegetarianism In Islam):  "Whosoever is kind to the creatures of God is kind to himself."   The prophet’s earliest biographies showed his universal compassion for all of creation. He spoke out against the mistreatment of camels and the use of birds for the targeting of marksmen. The Koran (s.6, vs.38) says: "There is not an animal on the earth, for a flying creature on two wings, but they are peoples like unto you."  Mohammed was said to prefer vegetarian foods, such as milk diluted with water. He was said to eat only pomegranates, grapes, and figs for weeks at a time. He is quoted as saying to some hunters, ‘Maim not the brute beasts.’ At another time Mohammed said: There are rewards for benefiting every animal having a moist liver (all living creatures).  Thus, we see a commonality of message of Mohammed in the words, "...but they are peoples like unto you", wherein Jesus portrayed the animals in the Gospel of the Nazirenes as our "lesser brothers".  

The diagram of the twelve sphere Tree of Life is overlain over the physical body at the right, because the Mind surrounds the body in the Ætheric Field, and expresses itself in the whole of the physical form.   What the physical body itself is, is an allegorical portrayal and expression of the Mind that surrounds it like the Life-Giving Atmosphere surrounds the earth.   With each breath, we interact and change the polarity of the mind that surrounds the body as a personal atmosphere, and draw the mental-connection in and out of the body which is the physical manifestation of the mind.   Those who learn to consciously breathe, are able to maintain a higher level of awareness through the positive and negative cycles of each breath.   Those who learn to control the cycles of the breath, learn to control and focus the mind.  

What we see in the image of the Tree of Life on the left, is the (Power) Center in the head which expresses itself through the brain which in the diagram is labeled the Heavenly Kingdom  The manner in which the diagram is presented is ultra-important, because it's opposite half is the opposite polarity of the (Power) Center in the genitals which expresses itself in the sex-centers, and is labeled the Earthly Kingdom.  When rightly understood, the centers of the lower (Earthly) Kingdom is the other half of the upper (Heavenly) Kingdom -- and the development of the Upper-Heavenly is directly linked to -- and limited by -- the development of the Lower-Earthly mental-spheres and spiritual-centers (see The Limitations Of The Way Of The Monk .    What this means is that your higher mental perceptive-reasoning will always be limited by your condition of mind with which your lower sex-center is imbued with.   And in understanding this human physical reality, a whole new meaning of the purity of the virgin birth would have to be acknowledged and understood.    And it is this purity of mind and being that is presented in the statement: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).   The city that one must enter through the gates, is the gates of the Inner Kingdom (see Gate Of Eden). 

On the basis that the upper most Heavenly sphere of mind and the lower most Earthly sphere of mind are polarized male/female paradoxical opposites, the Center balance point is what is labeled the Intellect sphere (shown as second from top), which is the physical bodily form itself.   And the Intellect Sphere is shown as the second from the top, because our condition of mind is always demonstrated in our actions -- or, in the words of the Epistle of James/Jacob: Faith apart from actions is dead -- and it is our actions that is the embodiment of not only our faith, but the embodiment of who and what we are.   As it is stated: "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).   The Intellect sphere therefore is so named, because it is the product of how we utilize our resources of mind in our daily life.

The Outer Columns of the Tree of Life represent the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of good and evil) -- with the male column being the Understanding, Judgment and Logic spheres of mind, while the female column is the Wisdom, Mercy and Intuition columns.   Jesus taught that Love is the answer, because that is not only the Center of the Tree of Life, but can only be manifest when the person's Mind is Whole and balanced across the twelve spheres.  The scriptures contain many sexual prohibitions, because the lower animal nature rules over the sex centers (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   But because the sex-center is the opposite polarity of the higher sphere of mind, the mind will remain limited by the sex-centers.   All of man's thoughts originate in the generative or sex centers through which the mind expresses itself in the physical.  

From the perspective of mental and spiritual development, one of the most important spheres is the Knowledge Sphere which is expressed through the stomach, and the Foundation Sphere which is expressed through the Colon.   When Jesus taught that "They, ...whose mouths are defiled with flesh, ...cannot be righteous; nor can they touch holy things, or teach the mysteries of the kingdom", because of the necessity of bringing Light to the stomach, which is the physical expression of the Knowledge Sphere of Mind and the Tree of Life.   As stated in the Alice Bailey writings: "...the vegetable kingdom is the transmitter and the transformer of the vital pranic fluid to the other forms of life on our planet. That is its divine and unique function. This pranic fluid, in its form of the astral light, is the reflector of the divine akasha. ...Those who seek to read the akashic records, or who endeavour to work upon the astral plane with impunity, and there to study the reflection of events in the astral light correctly, have perforce and without exception to be strict vegetarians."     

Dead flesh brings the vibration of death, fear and animal-consciousness to the crucial Knowledge Sphere, and inhibits the development of Mind beyond the organic level that Paul portrayed as an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness (see Animal Soul).    Thus, the Edenic Genesis account requires man to eat only seed-bearing fruit and vegetables, because the vegetable kingdom is the natural source of organic Light which is necessary for the mind of man to comprehend the Higher Knowledge.   The vegetable kingdom therefore primes the knowledge sphere, and prepares it to become nourished by the Source of Higher Knowledge that can be accessed by a deeper connection with one's Soul.   But where eating dead flesh deprives the Knowledge Sphere of Light which then stimulates and prepares the person to begin to tap into the Higher Knowledge Source in the Soul, just as important is the effect of eating dead flesh on the Colon or Foundation Sphere of the Mind as patterned in the Tree of Life.   Why?   Because it is the Foundation sphere is an opposite polarity in relation to the Knowledge sphere -- and it is the consumption of dead flesh that inhibits the person from drawing near and connecting with their Inner Soul-Self -- as well as inhibiting the male/female columns of the Tree of Knowledge from coming together in the Center column of the Tree of Life.   Which division inhibits the upper Heavenly Centers from coming together with their opposite polarity in the lower Earthly Centers -- further inhibiting the development of the Center Love Sphere.   By putting the vibration of death in the colon -- greatly slowing down and impeding the process of digestion -- even creating obstructions through what is called an impacted colon -- the person virtually shuts down the Foundation Sphere of Mind -- causing the person's thinking to remain earth-bound and undeveloped.    As can be seen in the image in the below, the eating of dead flesh is the primary cause of what has been termed the Toxic Colon.   And as seen in the image on the left, the vibration of the Colon impacts the vibration of all the organs of the body -- which organs are the (holographic) expression of the Mind in the physical.   

Quoting from How Long Does It Take To Digest Meat: Meat may stay in the intestines for 24-72 hours and still depend on its type. Likewise, red meat in particular takes 1-3 days to complete the digestion process because of fat content and high protein, according to Lisa Cicciarello Andrews of University of Cincinnati.   With this regard, Dr. Stanley Bass has simplified the concept of sequential eating pertaining to good digestion process. He is a respected nutritional consultant in Natural Hygiene and after testing the concepts of the most advanced approach to better understand proper food combining rules, he summarizes the rate of meat digestion.  Even the quick digesting foods have to wait until the slowest digesting food like meat leave the stomach.  ...Can you imagine how very toxic these meat acids retain in our bodies for some period of time and can be the causes of several ailments?

The Foundation Sphere is that aspect of mind that connects the self we are in this world, with the Soul Mind-Matrix of our Higher Soul-Self (see The Matrix And Soul-Mind ).  Who we are, is based upon who we have been and what our Soul has accomplished (see The Talents And Each Person's Spiritual DNA).   For a spiritual seeker to begin to overcome the Spiritual Amnesia imposed upon each us by the physical body (see Spiritual Amnesia ) -- thereby enabling the present Soul-generated personality to begin to recall the previous lives their Soul has lived -- the Higher Mind as manifest in the Knowledge sphere must be open and functioning without any ideological or dogmatic obstacles of belief, and the Foundation sphere must be functioning at an optimum level -- thereby permitting the Foundation sphere to freely connect to the Soul Mind-Matrix and bring about the proper mental and spiritual development of the person in the present.    

In the Comparative Anatomy diagram it is demonstrated that a flesh-eating carnivore has a very short 1.5 to 3 times the body length colon --  while the colon of a human is very long (9 times body length) in comparison.   This short colon of the carnivore is necessary so the carnivore can expel the dead flesh before it putrefies and turns toxic in the colon of the animal.   When a human with a very long colon eats dead flesh, the flesh not only greatly extends the digestion process within the colon -- slowing digestion down to a crawl -- but it putrefies and inhibits the higher frequencies of mind in the Foundation Sphere to which the colon is connected.   Thus, the eating of dead flesh impedes the Foundation sphere from developing beyond the organic -- thereby inhibiting the Foundation Sphere of Mind from accessing the Soul Mind-Matrix -- enabling the person from developing the ability to recall the previous lives their Soul-Self has lived.    

Merely being a vegetarian or even a vegan does not guarantee being able to recall the Soul's previous lives.   Unless the person is on the path of seeking Soul-Knowledge -- working on developing the mind and connecting the above (heavenly) with the below (earthly), the left (feminine/intuitive spheres of mind) and the right (male/linear spheres of mind), employing the catalysts of the scriptures to connect the inner (Soul/Logos( and the outer  -- fulfilling the reality personified in the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 (see Saying 22): 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" -- being a vegetarian will do little more than insure better physical health.   As an example: It will be virtually impossible for a vegetarian Seventh Day Adventist to recall the previous lives their Soul has lived, because the dogma of their Church inhibits the development of the person's mind.   As stated, The eye can only see what the mind is prepared to comprehend.  Thus, the beliefs (philosophical/religious) of the person creates an artificial barrier to their development beyond what Paul portrays as the "animal-Soul" level of consciousness of organic man. 

Unless the Knowledge Sphere which is physically manifest in the stomach, and the Foundation sphere which is physically manifest in the colon, are functioning and vibrating at the frequencies necessary to bring about the expansion and deepening of mind necessary to bring about and initiate the process of transformation and the subsequent stages of birth, then it will remain virtually impossible for such a person to experience true spiritual growth beyond a very low-level point of development.   

Serious seekers who begin to recognize the absolute need to move beyond the "animal-Soul" (see Animal Soul) level of consciousness that impedes their higher development of mind and spirit -- beginning the process of opening their mind to tap into their Higher Soul-Self (see SoulSelf.org ) -- and ultimately seeking to enter the Inner Kingdom and learn directly from the Logos/Son of God (see True Prophet ) -- they often begin by becoming strict vegetarians.   In recognizing that their colon has been long defiled by (impacted) dead flesh, often these people get colonics to forcefully clear out their colon that has become infused with hardened excrement.   What is known as the Essene Gospel of Peace presents to the seeker the answer they often embrace where it reads: "Think not that it is sufficient that the angel of water embrace you outwards only. I tell you truly, the uncleanness within is greater by much than the uncleanness without. And he who cleanses himself without, but within remains unclean, is like to tombs that outwards are painted fair, but are within full of all manner of horrible uncleannesses and abominations. So I tell you truly, suffer the angel of water to baptize you also within, that you may become free from all your past sins, and that within likewise you may become as pure as the river's foam sporting in the sunlight.  Seek, therefore, a large trailing gourd, having a stalk the length of a man; take out its inwards and fill it with water from the river which the sun has warmed. Hang it upon the branch of a tree, and kneel upon the ground before the angel of water, and suffer the end of the stalk of the trailing gourd to enter your hinder parts, that the water may flow through all your bowels. Afterwards rest kneeling on the ground before the angel of water and pray to the living God that he will forgive you all your past sins, and pray the angel of water that he will free your body from every uncleanness and disease. Then let the water run out from your body, that it may carry away from within it all the unclean and evil-smelling things of Satan. And you shall see with your eyes and smell with your nose all the abominations, and uncleannesses which defiled the temple of your body; even all the sins which abode in your body, tormenting you with all manner of pains. I tell you truly, baptism with water frees you from all of these. Renew your baptizing with water on every day of your fast, till the day when you see that the water which flows out of you is as pure as the river's foam. Then betake your body to the coursing river, and there in the arms of the angel of water render thanks to the living God that he has freed you from your sins. And this holy baptizing by the angel of water is: Rebirth unto the new life. For your eyes shall henceforth see, and your ears shall hear. Sin no more, therefore, after your baptism, that the angels of air and of water may eternally abide in you and serve you evermore."

Once it is understood that the connection to the Soul's past lives -- as well as the merger of the male/female columns of the Tree of Duality -- is greatly dependent upon the ability of the Foundation sphere to vibrate at a higher and more complete frequency of mind -- drawing in the light of the vegetable kingdom from the food the person consumes -- the seeker quickly learns that once the colon is cleaned of all defilements, that their consciousness can be raised up through the use of coffee enemas.  Through the process of cleansing and high-level empowerment through the coffee enemas, the seeker is often able to make more rapid gains at both overcoming their  Spiritual Amnesia imposed upon them by the physical body being cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which also has the capacity to greatly enhance their ability to observe and Triangulate (see Triangulation - Overcoming The Tower Of Babel Syndrome - The Secret To Mental/Spiritual Growth, Expansion and Soul-Birth  AND ALSO Using Triangulation - The Laws - The Spiritually Mature Mind Of Man ). 

 

  The Nazirene Vow And The Holographic Mind: The word Nazirene comes from the biblical term Nazir, which denotes one who is under a vow.  Thus, the Commandment of the Lord reads: "The LORD said to Moses, Speak to the Israelites and say to them: If a man or woman wants to make a special vow, a vow of separation to the LORD as a Nazirite, he must abstain from wine and other fermented drink and must not drink vinegar made from wine or from other fermented drink.  He must not drink grape juice or eat grapes or raisins. As long as he is a Nazirite, he must not eat anything that comes from the grapevine, not even the seeds or skins. During the entire period of his vow of separation no razor may be used on his head. He must be holy until the period of his separation to the LORD is over; he must let the hair of his head grow long. Throughout the period of his separation to the LORD he must not go near a dead body. Even if his own father or mother or brother or sister dies, he must not make himself ceremonially unclean on account of them, because the symbol of his separation to God is on his head. Throughout the period of his separation he is consecrated to the LORD" (Num 6:1-8 NIV).

It is of course impossible not to go near a dead body, while eating dead flesh.   Thus, in order to live the necessary Consecrated Life that has the power to transform the body and mind of the seeker/disciple into a Living Spiritual Temple (see Consecrated Living Temple) , this can only be accomplished when the person adheres to the Edenic Commandment -- i.e., "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..." (Gen 1:29-31 NKJ).   This purification and transformation of the self is necessary in the fulfillment of the scriptures in the example that the historical man Jesus taught and accomplished in his own life (see Fulfillment Of The Law), by turning the scriptures within one's own mind and being and using them as the Key of Knowledge in the transformation of Self.  Without becoming a strict vegetarian, the seeker/disciple would be unable to bring about the necessary expansion and deepening of the mind beyond the "animal-Soul" level of consciousness as outlined in the above subheading The Holographic Mind.   It is noteworthy that in the Gospel of the Nazirenes chap 2:7, it was said to Mary: "Therefore, Mary, do not eat any flesh, nor drink strong drink, for the child will be consecrated to God from your womb. He will neither take flesh nor strong drink, nor will he cut his hair."  Is there truth to the position that the mother of Jesus abstained from eating flesh, and did not cut his hair?  It is written of Jesus' brother by Eusebius Pamphilius regarding Jacob/James: “This apostle was consecrated from his mother’s womb. He drank neither wine nor fermented liquors, and abstained from animal food. A razor never came upon his head” [Eusebius’s Ecclesiastical History, p. 76].  St. Augustine wrote:  “St. James never ate animal food, living on seeds and vegetables, never tasting flesh or wine” [Ecclesiastical History, 2 Vols. Translated by H.J. Lawlor and J.E.L. Oulton].   Peter is quoted in the Clementine Homilies as warning that "The unnatural eating of the Flesh of Animals is as polluting as the Heathen Worship of Devils, with its Sacrifices and its impure Feasts, man becomes a fellow eater with Devils".   Which in many ways parallels the statement of Pythagoras who said:  " Those who kill and eat animals for food will be more prone than vegetarians to torture and kill their fellow man.  "For as long as men massacre Animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap Joy and Love."

Steven Rosen in his book, Food for the Spirit, 1987, argues: "The early Christian fathers adhered to a meatless regime...many early Christian groups supported the meatless way of life. In fact, the writings of the early Church indicate that meat eating was not officially allowed until the 4th century, when the Emperor Constantine decided that his version of Christianity would be the version for everyone. A meat eating interpretation of the Bible became the official creed of the Roman Empire, and vegetarian Christians had to practice in secret or risk being put to death for heresy. It is said that Constantine used to pour molten lead down the their throats if they were captured".  

Only when one begins to understand the spiritual essence and objective of the Nazirene Vow of Consecration, and the physical/mental purpose of the hair and beard -- especially in a man with respect to the development of the Intuitive Spheres of Mind -- can the foregoing be understood.  To develop the mind beyond the "animal-Soul" level of organic consciousness (see Animal Soul) that enables the seeker/disciple to begin to comprehend both the true spiritual meaning of the scriptures and the Higher Reality of the Soul, one must maintain the diet as outlined above at  The Holographic Mind.  And this spiritual fact is further presented in the biblical account of Daniel: "But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way.  Now God had caused the official to show favor and sympathy to Daniel, but the official told Daniel, "I am afraid of my lord the king, who has assigned your food and drink.  Why should he see you looking worse than the other young men your age?  The king would then have my head because of you.  Daniel then said to the guard whom the chief official had appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink.  Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.  So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days. At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food.  So the guard took away their choice food and the wine they were to drink and gave them vegetables instead. To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning.  And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds" (Dan 1:8-17 NIV). 

Can anyone simply open the scriptures and have the power to "...understand visions and dreams of all kinds?"    Not at all!!!  And such a power and ability could only be given to a seeker who has  manifest and brought about the above teachings on building and purifying the Body-Temple.   Further, the purification and transformation of the body and organic mind is portrayed in the allegory of Daniel and the three being thrown in the furnace, is merely another way of portraying the reality of the words: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ).   That the carnal prophets fail to understand the spiritual meaning of the End Times, is in fact why generation after generation of doomsday prophets have all proven to be frauds.   And this is why the modern religious world does not at all understand the spiritual meaning behind the apocalyptic visions in the Bible (see Gate Of Eden).  

Allegorically, the grapes of this world must be understood as the spirit of this world vs man's higher Spiritual Nature.  Again, allegorically, the statement "...Even if his own father or mother or brother or sister dies, he must not make himself ceremonially unclean on account of them, because the symbol of his separation to God is on his head", must be understood as being parallel to the Gospel statement: "If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother..." -- the allegorical reference is being made to the ways and the traditions of the culture one lives in.   

A Nazirite was one who was Anointed by the Lord to teach or free His people from enslavement to the forces and ignorance of this world.  Thus, it is written: "Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD, so the LORD delivered them into the hands of the Philistines for forty years. A certain man of Zorah, named Manoah, from the clan of the Danites, had a wife who was sterile and remained childless. The angel of the LORD appeared to her and said, You are sterile and childless, but you are going to conceive and have a son. Now see to it that you drink no wine or other fermented drink and that you do not eat anything unclean, because you will conceive and give birth to a son. No razor may be used on his head, because the boy is to be a Nazirite, set apart to God from birth, and he will begin the deliverance of Israel from the hands of the Philistines" (Judges 13:1-5 NIV).

To even begin to understand where it is stated above that  "...During the entire period of his vow of separation no razor may be used on his head. He must be holy until the period of his separation to the LORD is over; he must let the hair of his head grow long", it must be understood that the hair is very much as the nerve endings that attach the physical body to their higher mind in the Ætheric Field that surrounds the body as an atmosphere.   In fact, the hair and the beard can be thought of as higher spiritual/mental dendrites as presented in the Dictionary definition: "Dendrites (from Greek δένδρον déndron, "tree"), also dendrons, are the branched projections of a neuron that act to propagate the electrochemical stimulation received from other neural cells to the cell body, or soma, of the neuron from which the dendrites project. Electrical stimulation is transmitted onto dendrites by upstream neurons (usually their axons) via synapses which are located at various points throughout the dendritic tree. Dendrites play a critical role in integrating these synaptic inputs and in determining the extent to which action potentials are produced by the neuron.[1] Dendritic arborization, also known as dendritic branching, is a multi-step biological process by which neurons form new dendritic trees and branches to create new synapses.[1] The morphology of dendrites such as branch density and grouping patterns are highly correlated to the function of the neuron. Malformation of dendrites is also tightly correlated to impaired nervous system function" 

The Hasidim:  Many Hebrew Mystics were vegetarian (see The Enlightened Jewish Perspective).   The Jewish Mystic understands that the Torah has a mystical spiritual meaning that is not at all apparent to the untransformed reader.  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 The Zohar; Edited by Gershom G. Scholem, Zohar- The Book of Splendor, Basic Readings from the Kabbalah [New York, Schocken Books, 1949]).  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”.   And being the recepient of mystical vision, the Jewish Mystics perceive the previous lives their Souls have lived.  The following quotation is taken from 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 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”.  

In the Zohar, the foundational doctrine of Jewish Mysticism, 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”.  

Crucial to the development of mystical vision and the recall of the Soul's previous lives, is the Light that emanates from the beard --  and connects the physical to the mental bodies that surround the physical form.  That the person's diet and hair and beard in a man are crucial to developing deeper spiritual vision -- which is why it was written of Jacob/James, the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus by Eusebius Pamphilius regarding Jacob/James: “This apostle was consecrated from his mother’s womb. He drank neither wine nor fermented liquors, and abstained from animal food. A razor never came upon his head” [Eusebius’s Ecclesiastical History, p. 76].  St. Augustine wrote:  “St. James never ate animal food, living on seeds and vegetables, never tasting flesh or wine” [Ecclesiastical History, 2 Vols. Translated by H.J. Lawlor and J.E.L. Oulton].   An explanation of the purpose of the beard and its connective links into the mental bodies that surrounds our physical form is seen in the below article.

 

Kabbalah On The Beard As A Sacred Conduit Of Light: Quoting the article: Like the Dew of Mount Hermon

Now, the light that issues from the beard, via the hairs, is called mazal, because it "flows" drop by drop. A mazal is a spiritual conduit of divine life-force…  The word "mazal" in Hebrew is derived from the root letters nun-zayin-lamed, which spell the Hebrew word meaning "to flow". A mazal is a spiritual conduit of divine life-force, which flows from it to some other level.  To explain: The light of the Infinite One [first] becomes manifest in the head of Arich Anpin, in which are situated the brains. When it then seeks to be manifest [further down] through the throat, which is narrow, the light bursts forth [through the skin] as hair. This is the origin of the beard.   The transformation of divine consciousness from the mental to the emotional state is a drastic change, and involves a tzimtzum, or contraction, of the light. This is the spiritual mechanics behind the anatomical phenomenon of the neck being such a narrow connection between the head and the torso. Despite this contraction, the light descending from the mental faculties is still too intense to be completely funneled through the passageway of the neck/throat, and therefore, the residual aspects of it exude through the pores of the skin as the beard.  This is the mystical meaning of the verse: "[the sound of] the mighty/adirim [waters] that break the sea." (Ps. 93:4) These [waters] are from the hairs, as in the expression "he was entirely [covered] with a cloak/aderet of hair." (Gen. 25:25) When the vessel is pierced and the light issues forth as a hair, this is the cloak.  The word "adir" carries both the meaning of "mighty" and that of a magnificent "cloak" or "mantle", as a symbol of royalty and power.  Hair is like the letter vav, and the light within it is like the letter yud, which depicts the point of light within it.  The form of the letter vav represents an elongated channel, similar to a hair. The form of the letter yud symbolizes the particle of light that issues via the hair.  The beard of Arich Anpin extends down to its navel, which is opposite the head of Zeir Anpin. The light that manifests and pierces via the beard originates in the three brains…  The navel demarcates the division of the torso into its upper two thirds and its lower third. The top-most part of the head of Zeir Anpin enclothes Arich Anpin from this point, the lower third of tiferet of Arich Anpin.

[The lights of the beard issue] in thirteen parts. This is because the light that manifests and pierces via the beard originates in the three brains. These [states of mentality] are three names Havayah, which together possess 12 letters. These together with the 13th level that encompasses them all are 13 states of rectification. Therefore, all these 13 states [are channeled] through the beard of this male.  Each of the three "brains" or mentalities (chochma, bina, and daat) is a different manifestation of G‑d's creative energy, which is expressed in the name Havayah. Arich Anpin is considered a male partzuf, and there is no corresponding female partzuf that shares its mental states. These can therefore be entirely channeled through its own beard.  But below, there are only nine parts of the beard of Zeir Anpin. For above, in Arich Anpin, there is no feminine principle. The three final letters hei in the three names Havayah are for the female, and what is left [for the male] is the three letters yud-hei-vav in each name. This is why there are nine parts of the beard of Zeir Anpin and 13 parts of the beard of Arich Anpin.

When the three names Havayah in the three brains of Arich Anpin descend into its torso, there is no feminine principle to absorb the residual light from the final hei's of these names that pierces through the skin of the jaw and neck. Therefore, all this light can be manifest as a beard. When the similar process occurs in Zeir Anpin, however, there is the partzuf of Nukva to absorb the feminine energy from these letters. Thus, there are only 9 letters left to manifest in the beard. There is no kolel here (as there is in Arich Anpin) since the full array is not present.  Of these thirteen [parts of the beard of Arich Anpin], two are referred to as a mazal, in that divine beneficence flows downward through them. These are the attributes of "storing kindness" and "and acquits." His robe was like white snow…  As we have mentioned previously, the thirteen tufts of the beard of Arich Anpin are synonymous with the thirteen attributes, or aspects, of divine mercy:

  

Exodus 34

beard

1

mighty

sideburns

2

merciful

mustache

3

and gracious

the lack of hair in the middle
of the mustache

4

long-

the hair under the lower lip

5

suffering

the lack of hair in the middle
of the hair under the lower lip

6

abundant in kindness

the hair of the jaw bone

7

and truth

the lack of hair on the cheeks

8

storing kindness

the upper layer of the beard

9

to thousands

the short hairs between the upper
and lower layers of the beard

10

bearing iniquity

the small hairs near the throat

11

and transgression

the fact that these small hairs
are all of equal size

12

and sin

the lack of hair in the mouth

13

and acquits

the lower layer of the beard


It will be noted that these two (#8 and #13) are the upper and lower layers of the beard proper. As opposed to all the other parts of the beard in this table, these two extend downward.  These two mazalot couple and bestow beneficence on Zeir Anpin and Nukva. This is why it is said that these hairs reach the level of the navel [of Arich Anpin], for they impart beneficence to Zeir Anpin and Nukva, which exist from the level of the navel and downward.  The word for "storing [kindness]" ["notzer", spelled nun-tzadik-reish] may be permuted to spell the word for "will" ["ratzon", spelled reish-tzadik-vav-nun].  There is an implied vav in between the nun and the tzadik of notzer. This affords an association between this attribute of mercy and Arich Anpin, the partzuf of will.  This is because bina is termed "will," and it is the attribute of chesed. For this reason the high priest was robed in eight vestments. In general, the beard of the high priest is associated with bina, the eighth sefira.

The eighth attribute is "storing chesed," and we have just noted that "storing" is a permutation of "will." There must, therefore, be a connection between "will" and chesed. The connecting link is bina. When Isaac and Rebecca were praying, they were addressing these two attributes…  In the verse, "like the beard of Aaron, cascading down over his garments…" (Ps.133:2), we see that the beard is associated with Aaron, the first high priest. The word for "his garments" in this verse ("middotav") also can mean "his middot" or "his emotions". Thus, we have the image of Aaron the high priest with his beard flowing into the middot. In light of what we have seen above, this makes us identify Aaron with Arich Anpin, whose beard flows into Zeir Anpin, the partzuf of the middot.  As we said, middot can mean both emotions and garments. However, the high priest wore eight garments, while we usually speak of only seven middot. The eighth midda, then, is the next sefira in the series, which, if we begin with malchut and count upwards, is bina. In Aaron, or Arich Anpin, we may thus consider bina together with the middot.

The priest in his service elicits divine goodwill, as is seen in many verses throughout the Torah.  As we have also explained previously, the priest (Kohen) expressed the divine attribute of chesed, while the Levite (Levi) expressed the attribute of gevura.  The beard moreover is a garment, as it is written, "His robe was like white snow, [and the hair of his head was like pure wool]" (Dan. 7:9) and the beard is the attribute of "and acquits."  The verse quoted is a description of "the Ancient of Days", which, although usually as a term refers to the partzuf of Atik Yomin, is evidently taken here to refer to Arich Anpin (which, after all, enclothes Atik Yomin just as the other partzufim of Atzilut enclothe it). The "robe" in this verse is understood to be a white, flowing beard. The second half of the verse speaks of the hair of the head being like "pure wool". The word for used for "pure" or "clean" here is naka, Aramaic for nakeh (the whole verse, like most of the book of Daniel, is in Aramaic), the word for "acquits" in the list of the 13 attributes of mercy.

These two mazalot couple as one, [as mentioned above].  Now, these two mazalot are the two drops [of anointing oil] that hung at the end of Aaron's beard, as our sages have said. (Horayot 12a) This is the mystical meaning of the verse: "It is like the precious oil upon the head, cascading down upon the beard." (Ps. Ibid.) The oil is the light of chochma, as the sages say, "whoever is accustomed to use oil merits chochma." (Menachot 85a)  And as we have explained previously, chochma is the seminal drop of insight that enters the conscious mind as a concentrated essence from the super-conscious. This is similar to oil, which is the concentrated essence of the olive.  All the brains are receptacles for chochma and are called by its name. This is the mystical meaning of [the phrase from the above-quoted verse,] "like the precious oil."  The meaning is as follows: The order in which the partzufim enclothe Arich Anpin is that Abba enclothes his right arm and [the right] half of his torso, while Imma enclothes his left arm and [the left] half of his torso. [Both extend downward and enclothe him] as far as his navel. This is the mystical significance of the tefillin that we put on our left hand, for we elevate thereby the Nukva into Imma, which enclothes the left hand of Arich Anpin. Zeir Anpin enclothes the right thigh [of Arich Anpin] up to his navel, while Nukva of Zeir Anpin enclothes his left thigh up to his navel. This is the meaning of [the statement in the Zohar:] "he is with netzach, and she is with hod."

Netzach and hod correspond to the right and left legs, respectively.  The beard of Arich Anpin extends down to his navel, where is found the head of Zeir Anpin. This is the mystical meaning of the expression "upon the head" [in the verse quoted above], for the divine beneficence flows onto the head of Zeir Anpin.  The verse thus reads, mystically: "Like the precious oil - i.e., chochma, suspended as drops on the end of the beard of Arich Anpin, which is on top of the head of Zeir Anpin."  But before it reaches the head of Zeir Anpin it "cascades down the beard," meaning that it ascends to [the eighth part of the beard,] "storing [chesed]."  For this attribute of divine mercy corresponds to the upper layer of the beard proper.  This is the mystical meaning of the [continuation of the verse quoted above:] "running down over his garments". The word for "his garments" [midotav] can be read as "the middot of [the letters] vav-yud", meaning the hairs, as mentioned above. That is why the word "over" [al] is used here, for it refers to the hairs themselves.  The vav signifies the hollow channel of the hair, and the yud signifies the light pulsing through it. Thus, the verse describes the light of chochma flowing down the beard.

[Once it has received the influx of chochma from Arich Anpin via its beard,] Zeir Anpin then gives it in turn to Nukva. This is the mystical meaning of the verse: "Open for me, my bride…, for my head is full of dew". (Song. 5:2) The dew refers to the light which flows from the hair of his head, whose numerical value is the same as that of the word for "dew" ["tal", tet-lamed = 39].  [This verse continues:] "…my locks with the drops of the night." These [locks] are the hair on the back of the head [of Zeir Anpin], which hang down until they reach the head of Nukva, behind him. This is the mystical meaning of "the drops of the night," i.e., the drops [of chochma] that reach "night," i.e., malchut.

Day and night are masculine and feminine images, and therefore correspond to the male and female archetypes of Zeir Anpin and Nukva.  Now, when Isaac and Rebecca were praying [to G‑d for children], they were addressing these two attributes [of divine mercy]. This is why the expression "entreated" is used [instead of the more usual "prayed"]. As our sages say: "Why are the prayers of the righteous compared to a pitchfork? To indicate that just as a pitchfork turns the grain from place to place in the barn, so do the prayers of the righteous turn the mind of the Holy One, blessed be He, from the attribute of judgment to the attribute of mercy." (Sukka 14a )  The root of the word for "entreat" (in Hebrew, "ayin-tav-reish") also means "pitchfork".  Isaac was directing his prayers [to G‑d] via the [thirteenth] mazal, "and He acquits", for from there he [emulating Zeir Anpin] had to direct divine beneficence [in this case, fertility] to his wife.  Rebecca, on the other hand, directed her prayers [to G‑d] via the [eighth] mazal, "storing [chesed]" which is the male of the two.  This was in order to elicit divine mercy upon her husband.  Each one prayed opposite to the other. This is why it says "opposite his wife".

When you cut the hair and beard, what you are doing is severing the higher nerve endings that connect man's physical consciousness with his Higher Mind.  This is especially important in the development of the Intuitive Spheres of Mind that connect the person we are in this world with our Higher Soul-Self (see SoulSelf.org ), and ultimately the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.   When we cut the hair, it is as if we sever the nerve endings into the Higher Mind as manifest in the Ætheric Field that surrounds the physical body.    Allegorically, when Samson explained to Delilah the source of his super-human strength, he said to her: "No razor has ever been used on my head, he said, because I have been a Nazirite set apart to God since birth.  If my head were shaved, my strength would leave me, and I would become as weak as any other man. When Delilah saw that he had told her everything, she sent word to the rulers of the Philistines, Come back once more; he has told me everything. So the rulers of the Philistines returned with the silver in their hands. Having put him to sleep on her lap, she called a man to shave off the seven braids of his hair, and so began to subdue him. And his strength left him" (Judg 16:17-19 NIV).

A Nazir, Nazirite or Nazirene, is one who takes a vow to abstain from the things of this world -- to be set apart -- to be in the world and not of it -- and consecrate himself to God. A Nazirene has always been used in reference to a Holy Man who possessed the gift of spiritual vision, knowledge, prophesy, psychic perception and ecstatic insight into man's higher reality. Another important element in the term Nazir is its linguistic relation to the words Nezer and Netzer -- meaning one of whom it can be said that they represent a militant message of freedom from "worldly Kings" and their secular wickedness.

In order to be a Nazirene one must so purify and consecrate their physical body and mind so as to be set wholly apart for the Lord. Thus, the Nazirene must become the very definition of the requirement to be in the world and not of it. A Nazirene cannot hold allegiance to manmade doctrines, traditions, or religious institutions. A Nazirene knows that there is only One True teacher (see The True Prophet) of the true meaning of the scriptures -- and he lives in such a faithful way and contrite manner, that he receives instruction directly from the Lord. Thus, a Nazirene must so live their life that the inner door of utterance from the Holy Spirit will be opened, and they will be taught directly from God -- "And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance" (Acts 2:4 NKJ); "praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints--and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (Eph 6:18-20 NKJ); "Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak" (Col 4:2-4 KJV).   And it is this necessary abandonment of the elementary teachings of Christ ( "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] ) that Paul noted was necessary to embrace the stages of mental expansion and deepening in order to comprehend the higher reality of the Soul -- i.e., "Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity..." (Heb 6:1 NIV).   But to bring about the necessary "maturity" of mind that Paul makes reference to, the seeker/disciple MUST live and embrace the Consecrated Life in TheWay that transforms the body-mind into the Living Spiritual Temple.

 

An Important Article On A Man's Hair And Beard

Quoted from The Truth About Hair

Why Native Americans Kept Their Hair Long
By C. Young

"Each part of the body has highly sensitive work to perform
for the survival and well being of the body as a whole.
The body has a reason for every part of itself."
 -- C. Young

This data has been hidden from the public since the Vietnam War.

Our culture leads people to believe that hair style is a matter of personal preference, that hair style is a matter of fashion and-or convenience, and that how people wear their hair is simply a cosmetic issue. Back in the Vietnam war however, an entirely different picture emerged, one that has been carefully covered up and hidden from public view.

In the early nineties, Sally (name changed to protect privacy) was married to a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical hospital. He worked with combat veterans with PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Most of them had served in Vietnam.   Sally said, "I remember clearly an evening when my husband came back to our apartment on Doctor’s Circle carrying a thick official looking folder in his hands. Inside were hundreds of pages of certain studies commissioned by the government. He was in shock from the contents. What he read in those documents completely changed his life. From that moment on my conservative middle of the road husband grew his 
hair and beard and never cut them again. What is more, the VA Medical center let him do it, and other very conservative men in the staff followed his example. As I read the documents, I learned why. It seems that during the Vietnam War, special forces in the war department had sent undercover experts to comb American Indian Reservations looking for talented scouts, for tough young men trained to move stealthily through rough terrain. They were especially looking for men with outstanding, almost supernatural, tracking abilities. Before being approached, these carefully selected men were extensively documented as experts in tracking and survival.

With the usual enticements, the well proven smooth phrases used to enroll new recruits, some of these, 
Native American trackers, were then enlisted. Once enlisted, an amazing thing happened. Whatever talents and skills they had possessed on the reservation seemed to mysteriously disappear, as recruit after recruit failed to perform as expected in the field.

Serious casualties and failures of performance led the government to contract expensive testing of these recruits, and this is what was found.

When questioned about their failure to perform as expected, the older recruits replied consistently that when they received their required military haircuts, they could no longer 'sense' the enemy, they could no longer access a 'sixth sense', their '
intuition' no longer was reliable, they couldn't 'read' subtle signs as well or access subtle extrasensory information.

So the testing institute recruited more Native American trackers, let them keep their long hair, and tested them in multiple areas. Then they would pair two men together who had received the same scores on all the tests. They would let one man in the pair keep his hair long, and gave the other man a military haircut. Then the two men retook the tests.

Time after time the man with long hair kept making high scores. Time after time, the man with the short hair failed the tests in which he had previously scored high scores.

Here is a typical test:
The recruit is sleeping out in the woods. An armed 'enemy' approaches the sleeping man. The long haired man is awakened out of his sleep by a strong sense of danger and gets away long before the enemy is close, long before any sounds from the approaching enemy are audible.

In another version of this test the long haired man senses an approach and somehow intuits that the enemy will perform a physical attack. He follows his 'sixth sense' and stays still, pretending to be sleeping, but quickly grabs the attacker and 'kills' him as the attacker reaches down to strangle him.

This same man, after having passed these and other tests, then received a military haircut and consistently failed these tests, and many other tests that he had previously passed.

So the document recommended that all Indian trackers be exempt from military haircuts. In fact, it required that trackers keep their hair long." --

 The mammalian body has evolved over millions of years. Survival skills of humans and animals at times seem almost supernatural. Science is constantly coming up with more discoveries about the amazing abilities of man and animals to survive. Each part of the body has highly sensitive work to perform for the survival and well being of the body as a whole. The body has a reason for every part of itself. (Sikhs consider body hair to be a special gift from the Creator.)

 Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved 'feelers' or 'antennae' that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brainstem, the limbic system, and the neo cortex.

 Not only does hair, including facial hair in men, provide an information highway reaching the brain, hair also emits energy, the electromagnetic energy emitted by the brain into the outer environment. This has been seen in Kirlian photography when a person is photographed with long hair and then re-photographed after the hair is cut.

 When hair is cut, receiving and sending transmissions to and from the environment are greatly hampered. This results in a numbing-out.

 Cutting the hair is a contributing factor to the unawareness of environmental distress in local ecosystems. It is also a contributing factor to insensitivity in relationships of all kinds. It contributes to sexual frustration.

 In searching for solutions for the distress in our world, it's time for us to consider that many of our most basic assumptions about reality are in error. It may be that a major part of the solution is looking at us in the face each morning when we see ourselves in the mirror. See also If Your Dad Doesn't Have A Beard.

      
Native Americans respected their hair.

"Some native tribes even scalped their live enemies.
It appears this practice held much more significance than just
a bunch of 'savages' committing acts of barbarism." -- 
H. S. Khalsa

The story of Sampson and Delilah in the Bible has a lot of encoded truth to tell us. When Delilah cut Sampson’s hair, the once undefeatable Sampson was defeated. More About Your Hair. See also Concerning The Tradition of Long Hair and Beards.


Ask yourself, "Why does my hair keep growing back, cut after cut?" 
And, "Why is it so difficult to stop hair from growing?"
Answer: Hair is more important than you think!

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).   But what exactly does this mean?   The physical body of man has been formed out of the lower three kingdoms of this world -- i.e., mineral, vegetable with an animal-consciousness -- and having emerged out of the initial womb of his physical mother, few people understand that man has then entered the secondary womb of Mother-Earth (see Mental Womb ) -- holographically, as a Cosmic Sperm Or Ovum.   The analogy of Plato's Cave (see Cave) which is synonymous with the "outer darkness" of mind and being in the Gospels, portrays this realm as a "shadow-world" of illusions that have been generated from a higher unseen Source -- which reality has been confirmed by modern physicists (see Science Proves Spirit), where they portray what man with the limitations of his organic senses perceives as a "blemish" created by invisible forces which exist in an unseen Ætheric Field.  

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 mental-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".  

When Paul states that organic "natural" man is of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul-Reality, he was making reference to the reality that the mind must be matured and evolved in order to bring about the next stage of birth -- therefore enabling a person to enter the Kingdom of Man -- thereby fulfilling the Gospel teaching on receiving the Kingdom as a Child at the next level of development (see Children).  But, as explored at the link on Children,  this ultra-important teaching was corrupted and suppressed by the gentile Church.   When a person of a "natural" mind portrays himself as a man or woman, this is synonymous with a fetus being portrayed as an infant.   While it is true that a fetus has the potential to be born and become an infant, until the fetus is actually born, the fetus is in the process of developing enough to experience birth and become an infant.  The same is true when we are born into this world as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm) -- which is holographically on the next level of birth within the process of the Laws of Creation.  In the same way that the fetus has an undeveloped human body that is in the process of physically developing in accord with the Laws of Nature, when we are born into this world we dwell in a mentally-infantile condition that through the interaction of the Natural Laws, we have the potential to bring about the next stage of birth -- i.e., Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (see Mental Womb).   Where the development from fetus to our physical body can be portrayed as a cookie-cutter process, this would not be true with respect to the process of mental development.   Why?   Because the development of mind requires choice, freewill, and the living out of the choices we have made in order to learn through our experiences.  Therefore, there can be no cookie cutter interaction with the Natural Laws that bring about the next stage of birth.   While the Laws of Nature can provide a physical body for the Soul to inhabit, the development of mind requires a very different and complex interaction of the Natural Laws in order to respond to our choices, exercise of freewill, and the mindset and lifestyle we have chosen to live out. 

Just because we are born in the image of man, that does not mean that we have attained the Kingdom of Man.  And this is seen in the statement in Genesis: "Then God said, Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground" (Gen 1:26).  Which is followed by: "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." (Gen 1:27). While man is portrayed as having been created in the "image" of God,  the Genesis account does not portray man as existing in the term "likeness", because this is a higher reality that each Soul must achieve.  When Jesus stated the requirement that "You must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt 5:48), what he was stating was that having been created in the "image" of God, each Soul must achieve the evolved reality of existing in the "likeness" of God.      

When Jesus taught in the parable of TheCall to the Wedding Feast that those who did not put on the required "wedding garment" would be cast into the "outer darkness" (of mind and being) -- i.e, "So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.  Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'  For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:12-14 NKJ) -- and again: For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.  And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matt 25:28-30 NKJ).  The "outer darkness" is the womb of mother-earth -- and the requirement to bring about the next stage of birth is the "wedding garment" of spiritual maturity.    When rightly understood, what the Gospels portray as the outer darkness is parallel to the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions.  

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 male/female 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.   Which means from a holographic perspective, if you as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm succeeded in becoming a Cosmic Embryo, you must then evolve into a Cosmic Fetus and mature to the level where you can enter the Kingdom of Man.  

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 image of God -- with the potential to exist in the likeness 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).    

 

 

  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 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 the vast majority of mankind today.   

Those who are able to enter what I call the Realm of Souls -- i.e., 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, the seven colors correspond to the seven notes of 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 -- to the degree that Jesus taught that not even a sparrow can fall to the earth apart from the Will of God as expressed in the Laws.   And the reality of the Natural Laws Includes 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 Folly Of Original Sin and  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 on a deeper level connected.   And it is this inability of organic man to comprehend paradoxical truths where two seemingly opposing truths are equally true -- 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 or Son of God, is replicated into every aspect of Creation -- i.e., positive/negative and balance.   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 and Knowing based upon Experience.   And as the Individual Souls 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 Souls, 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 or 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 Soul-Mind 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 dualistic 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 Ætheric 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 or 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 the previously generated images as single neurons in the Soul Mind-Matrix.   What this means is that each soul-personality generated into this realm that lived lives in different time-frames -- as different genders -- as different races -- drawn from different religions and often totally different experiences of life -- is eventually evolved to the level where that personality 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, all 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".  

When Paul states that organic "natural" man is of an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul-Reality, he was making reference to the reality that the mind must be matured and evolved in order to bring about the next stage of birth and enter the Kingdom of Man.  When a person of a "natural" mind portrays himself as a man, this is synonymous with a fetus being portrayed as an infant.   While it is true that a fetus has the potential to be born and become an infant, until the fetus is actually born, the fetus is in the process of developing enough to experience birth and become an infant.  The same is true when we are born into this world as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm) -- which is holographically on the next level of birth within the process of the Laws of Creation.  In the same way that the fetus has an undeveloped human body that is in the process of physically developing in accord with the Laws of Nature, when we are born into this world we dwell in a mentally-infantile condition that through the interaction of the Natural Laws, we have the potential to bring about the next stage of birth -- i.e., Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (see Mental Womb).   Where our physical body can be portrayed as a cookie-cutter process, this would not be true with respect to the process of mental development.   Why?   Because the development of mind requires choice, freewill, and the living out of the choices we have made in order to learn through our experiences.  Therefore, there can be no cookie cutter interaction with the Natural Laws that bring about the next stage of birth.   While the Laws of Nature can provide a physical body for the Soul to inhabit, the development of mind requires a very different and complex interaction of the Natural Laws in order to respond to our choices, exercise of freewill, and the mindset and lifestyle we have chosen to live out. 

Just because we are born in the image of man, that does not mean that we have attained the Kingdom of Man.  And this is seen in the statement in Genesis: "Then God said, Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground" (Gen 1:26).  Which is followed by: "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." (Gen 1:27). What is portrayed in the term "likeness", is a higher reality that must be achieved.  When Jesus taught in the parable of TheCall to the Wedding Feast that those who did not put on the required "wedding garment" would be cast into the "outer darkness" (of mind and being) -- i.e, "So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.  Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'  For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:12-14 NKJ) -- and again: For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.  And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matt 25:28-30 NKJ).  The "outer darkness" is the womb of mother-earth -- and the requirement to bring about the next stage of birth is the "wedding garment" of spiritual maturity.    When rightly understood, what the Gospels portray as the outer darkness is parallel to the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions.  

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.   Which means from a holographic perspective, if you as a Cosmci Ovum or Sperm succeeded in becoming a Cosmic Embryo, you must then evolve into a Cosmic Fetus and mature to the level where you can enter the Kingdom of Man.  

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 image of God -- with the potential to exist in the 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).      

 

 

 

 

 

  The Source Of Soul-Light: If our True-Self is a Being of White Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) -- i.e., Manifest Intellect and Knowing -- in a holographic reality, God is also White-Light, and All-Knowing -- which means that as expressions of both God and our Higher Soul-Self, we are also white light.  Which provokes the question: If this is true, then why don't we appear as a being of white light?  The answer is very simple: We can only perceive with our physical senses, that part of us that is of the earth's vibration -- i.e., our physical eyes are comprised of earth-matter, and can only perceive that vibration which is of the earth.   From the perspective of the modern physicist, that part of us that we see is very much the "blemish" within the greater Ætheric Field of the self -- i.e., quoting physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about 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.”   Which, is portrayed in the words of cyberneticist David Foster who described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The holographic reality 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.”

What this means is that our brains which are made-up of earth-matter, can only detect those parts of self that is of an earth-vibrational frequency.   Which is why the Gospel of Thomas states: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".   Those people who have developed their innate resources of mind, and have manifest to varying degrees what the scriptures portray as the "eyes to see", and are able to observe that our form as a man or woman is the result of the interaction of the forces in the greater field that surrounds our physical body, are able to see more than those who lack the "eyes to see" -- i.e., the prophecy of Isaiah when Jesus said: "In them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled: ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving" (Matt 13:14).   While Jesus said of his disciples whose eyes, ears and perceptive-understanding had been opened and were no longer limited to the physical: "But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear" (Matt 13:15), this is not the case with organic man in his natural state of divided development. 

From the perspective of the pattern of mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life, so long as a person is looking out with undeveloped senses, through the divided eyes of male or female, they will remain blind to man's higher Soul-Reality.  If the Divine Pattern of Creation is Mother/Father God (see Trinity - Divine Pattern), and the Third-Force of Logos or Son of God that is representative of the Mind of God, then unless we can overcome our own division of male and female, we will remain blind to our own higher Soul-Reality.   In like manner, our Soul-Self ( SoulSelf.org ) that was created in the image of God, is a Being of White Light -- wherein, the division of male/female at that level of our Being is in Oneness.   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 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 Soul has no sex, because our True-Self -- i.e., our Soul-Self -- is not divided across the spectrum of male and female -- and is therefore the very embodied manifestation of Intellect and Light.  Thus, the pre-existent Soul of man which are portrayed in the foregoing as "..sparks of which form the individual Souls..." are in fact the Beings of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) encountered by some in a Near Death Experience -- and it is this Being of Light that is asexual and without a physical body as we perceive in this world, that is each person's true form and self.   But what this also means is that so long as we are looking out at the world through the eyes of a divided man or woman -- or thinking and perceiving reality from the perspective of a divided man or woman -- that we will remain incapable of perceiving and comprehending our own higher Soul-Reality.  

In the article at SoulSelf.org where white light is discussed, the reality of white light is that it is comprised of the seven colors of the rainbow -- which in sound, equates to the Octave.   In Genesis 9:13 it states: "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth."   And the Bow (rainbow) is a sign of the embodiment of the One that is comprised of the Seven -- which is comprised of the Twelve -- and it is this pattern that is holographically replicated into all of Creation. 

The important point to consider is the fact that within the spectrum of white light, exists the seven colors that when diffused as presented in the above image at the right, is seen in the condition of separation from the other colors.   Which means that holographically where the pattern is replicated, the White Light of God is comprised of Seven Kingdoms -- as is the white light of the Soul -- with the potential of white in the Ætheric bodies and/or Aura that surrounds the physical body of mankind.  And while on one level each of the seven kingdoms are At-One in the Wholeness of the White Light, they also exist as separate entities on another level where we can see that the White Light is comprised of Seven Independent colors.  Just like in sound, an Octave is comprised of the seven incremental primary notes, which when the half tones are included, gives us the magic number of twelve -- with the twelve portraying the four (4) trinities that comprise the pattern and blueprint of the Mind.   But more important is the reality that it is therefore impossible to have White Light apart from the Seven Colors that form and manifest the White Light.  Further, what we portray as Mind is the product of -- or third-force balance of -- the male/female opposites that must exist in order for the Mind to exist.  In the Wisdom of the Ancients, the Logos was a portrayal of the Mind of God -- and it existed as the Third-Force Balance or Offspring of Mother/Father God.   The Logos or Mind of God also exists at the core of every person's being, and was portrayed by the followers of Jesus as the Son of God or True Prophet (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TrueProphet ). 

The reality of a hologram or holographic reality, is that the pattern of the whole is replicated into each of the parts that make it up.  And this is why the allegorical Genesis account states that mankind was Created in the Image of God -- "male and female he created them" -- which means that from a holographic perspective, everything that exists within God, also exists within mankind -- but so long as the polarities of male and female remain divided and detached, the person's perceptive understanding will remain limited and earth-bound.  Which reality is expressed in the wisdom of the Delphic Oracle which states: "Heed these words, you who wish to probe the depths of Nature: If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside.  If you ignore the wonders of your own House, how do you expect to find other wonders?  In you is hidden the Treasure of Treasures.  Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods."    Which provokes the question: How can it even be stated: "If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside"???    While the vast majority of modern authorities would immediately reject this statement as absurd, when rightly understood it is true beyond even their ability to grasp and imagine!  

    The Source Of Soul-Light Part 2: And The Vertical Slice Of Creation: Genesis 9:13 reads: "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth" -- but what does this mean?   Why is the rainbow with its seven color spectrum a sign of the covenant between God and Man?   In the same way that within the Cosmic White Light of God there are Seven Kingdoms -- and holographically the seven kingdoms are replicated into the pattern of the each of our Higher Soul-Self which is our True-Self that is the Being of Light encountered in a Near Death Experience -- and holographically the seven kingdoms of our Soul-Self are replicated into the pattern of man's physical Spiritual Centers (or what the Easterners call Chakras) -- which on one level exist as white light, while on another level are the independent colors or Centers of the body/mind of man.  But, in order for the Soul-Self to be White Light, the Soul must be comprised of what can be portrayed as A Vertical Slice of the Pie of Creation -- just as man can be portrayed as a vertical slice of the Soul.  And if mankind in the physical is the fourth kingdom -- the Center that is the balance of the upper Heavenly and the lower earthly -- with the lower three earthly kingdoms are perceived to appear to our senses as mineral, vegetable and animal.  In a series of Nazirene forum posts which was named the original 600 Series, I portray the upper three heavenly kingdoms that would encompass spiritual center 5, 6 and 7.  But what this also means is that the ONLY means to bring about a condition of At-Oneness with our Higher Soul-Self, is to achieve the Wholeness set forth in the Gospel Healings -- which is why the Eastern paths of meditation and suppression of the lower centers does not work to bring about the next stage of birth.  In fact, the only source that has the process of birth correct, is the version of Gospel of Thomas saying 22 that is preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes which reads: And one of the disciples asked him, "How shall a man enter into the Kingdom?" And he answered and said, "If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."

Throughout the above I confirm the teachings of Jewish Mysticism and the Zohar where it is written: "...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...".  And when it is recognized that the original spark of the Divine that formed the Soul was White Light -- and that the seven colors of the rainbow in harmony and oneness create the White Light -- then the evolution of the sparks in the formation of an Evolved and Great Light that forms the Being of Light, is dependent upon the evolution of each of those rays of color-vibration that comprise the White Light of the Soul.   Which means that while on one level there must be maintained a degree of separation for each of the seven kingdoms/colors to be expressed and interact -- while on another level a deeper connection must be maintained that brings about an interaction across the spectrum of the seven kingdoms/colors.   This separation on one level, and connection on a deeper level, is not only true and maintained in the outer world, but also within each of us.  In the diagram of the Spiritual Centers at the right we see the division of the seven colors that are necessary to manifest White Light.   The fact that White Light cannot exist apart from the Seven Colors, means that each of the Seven Colors on one level must be independent of the other colors, while on another level they must exist as the manifestation of White Light.   Further, that in their separation, each of the seven kingdoms/colors are imbued with a level of consciousness appropriate for that level of mind -- and yet, only on the higher connected level of Mind that is beyond the perceptive-vision of man's untransformed earthly senses, are they perceived to be aspects of the Whole -- can man's Higher Soul-Reality be Manifest where the Seven are brought into a state of Oneness.  

 

 

What this means is that at man's organic "natural" level of consciousness where he perceives the world with senses comprised of earth-matter, he is only able to perceive each of the earthly kingdoms in their separated reality of mineral, vegetable, animal -- and is only able to detect and perceive the three earthly-kingdoms in the fourth kingdom of mankind.   Because his senses with which he looks out at the world are of an earth-vibratory frequency, he is not only blind to the upper three heavenly kingdoms, but is also unable to perceive the reality of the Whole where all seven kingdoms exist as One in the Embodiment of White Light.  In order to perceive the Whole Reality, each of the seven kingdoms must not only evolve and develop independently, but also be harmonized across that spectrum of mind and being where they exist as One.   And throughout this article this self-knowledge that can be portrayed as the pattern and blueprint of self, is portrayed as the Cosmology of Mind and Being.  And is the basis of the ancient adage that is presented in the Gospel of Thomas in the words: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".

 

 

When the question was posed to Jesus as to how the Kingdom is entered in that version of Gospel of Thomas saying 22 that has been preserved in the Gospel Of The Nazirenes -- i.e., "If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."  The key term here is the word CENTER -- meaning that the left and right male/female columns of the mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life -- along with the three upper heavenly kingdoms that must be merged with their lower natures in the three earthly kingdoms and brought into the CENTER -- which Center is the Kingdom of Man -- a condition portrayed in the phrase Son Of Man -- which equates to our becoming a Child of the Kingdom (see Children).   And it is this reality that is expressed in the statement: "And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, and said, Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" (Mat 18: 2-3).   And it is this condition where the Whole of Self is in harmony and balanced in the CENTER, that portrays the one who has "turned about and become as a child" -- i.e., a child of the Kingdom in the manner that each of us was when as the prodigal son/daughter, we abandoned the Kingdom of the Father and traveled into this, the Far Country.    And it is this "turned about" Condition which achieves Wholeness, that is presented in the question of the above teaching that has been preserved in the Gospel of Thomas: "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."  When you can accomplish this, you will not only become Whole, but you will manifest the White Light of your Higher Soul-Self.  It might also be pointed out that the Center Sphere of the Tree of Life is the Love Sphere -- and this Sphere of Divine Love can only be active when the other 11 spheres exist in a condition of Wholeness. 

Each of the three lower earthly kingdoms -- and the kingdom of man -- are interacting and evolving separately in the outer world.  But the most important interaction is taking place within us where the lower three kingdoms are directly interacting with the fourth kingdom of human consciousness as manifest in the kingdom of man.   In the case of most people, because of their immature and undeveloped condition, they are being ruled over by their lower animal nature (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   When one begins to understand the Cosmology of Mind and Being -- and they understand that the lower three earthly kingdoms are a reflection of the upper three heavenly kingdoms -- and such a person is able to bring the upper and lower together in the Center -- fulfilling the teaching: 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."   Only then can Wholeness be achieved through the next stage of birth that transforms the self into a "child of the Kingdom" -- i.e., "...unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" .   The images we perceive in the outer world, are aspects of mind impressed into the forms of nature -- interacting with each other in the process of mental and spiritual evolution.    

Allegorical Aspects Of Mind: In this realm what we are in fact seeing with our physical senses, is allegorical forms imposed on the images of nature which represent aspects of mind.  Quoting a paragraph from Science Proves Religion http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#ScienceProves .    

 

The Universe is a Great Mind: 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 holographic reality 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.”

What is the impact of these findings of modern science?   The reality that is being conveyed is that what we perceive as solid physical matter, is being interpreted in this manner because our brains interpret that frequency to make what we see appear concrete.   Moreover, what it also means is that we perceive only a fraction of Creation because our brains, which by virtue of the fact of their physical nature, can only detect frequencies that are within the same (physical) spectrum.  In the same way that in order to be effective, an antenna must possess the physical characteristics that enables it to receive a certain range of the frequencies that the device (radio, TV, wireless phone, etc.) is intended to operate within, our physical mind and bodies are designed to function within a certain spectrum of Creation -- and this is predicated by the fact that our physical nature is composed of the elements that are of this world.

Further quoting from: The Great Allegory Of Mind And Matter - What Do We See? http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#AllegoryOfMindAndMatter

 

Perhaps the key to bridging the visionary perception of the Gnostic Mystics who authored the scriptures, 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.   In David Fosters words: “…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 ).   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 in a Great Mind -- 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?   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.  

We dwell in a world of animated mental imagery -- a world where aspects of mind are impressed into the forums of nature -- this enables us to physically interact with aspects of  mind -- and while the forms with which these images are imbued are cast by Universal Mind, because each of us is under a different sequence of Laws by virtue of the fragment our mind is polarized to within the spheres of the Tree of Life, we then perceive the forms of mental imagery from an often uniquely different and sometimes opposite perspective than what is perceived and understood from another person.    This segmented perspective which is responsible for what we can portray as the Tower of Babel Syndrome with which organic man is imbued, causes man to not only understand the allegorical accounts of the scriptures differently, but also the mental imagery of the outer physical world itself -- as explored in the foregoing, and presented to us in the 90th Chapter of the Gospel of the Nazirenes where it is stated: "The One truth has many sides, and one sees one side only, another, and some see more than others, according as it is given to them.  Behold this crystal; how the one light is manifest in twelve faces, yea four times twelve, and each face reflects one ray of light, and one regards one face, and another, another, but it is the one crystal, and the one light that shines in all..."  

Therefore, each person not only has a unique perspective of the universal symbols of mind as expressed in the mental imagery of the forms impressed into Nature -- but each person's perception is further narrowed by (1) what sphere of mind they are polarized to; (2) the Laws they were /are born under; (3) gender; (4) the filter of race; (5) the cultural influences of their present life; (6) the influence of religion and philosophy; (7) each person's personal level of mental evolution they have achieved over the course of the past lives their higher Soul-Self has lived.   The result is that what each person sees and evaluates in the outer world, more often than not is a reflection of that person's own mind and thinking.   And it is through this interaction with a reflected image and imagery of their own mind, that forces each persons growth and development through the interactions of life which are brought about by the Laws that have created each person's learning curriculum of life -- with the objective being to force each individual into mental interactions which not only serve the individual needs of each person, but bring about that person's own evolutionary development of mind.  

That the organic mind of man only sees the outward allegorical form that has been imbedded in nature as a symbol of what that form indicates, is the illusions of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness", and what Plato portrayed as the shadow-images of the Cave of illusions.   Only as your higher aspects of mind develop -- overcoming your divided nature -- drawing nearer to your Higher Soul-Self -- do you begin to see the meaning of the allegorical symbols of this world -- i.e., "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you".  

If all that we see in the outer world is the result of the forces exerted in the underlying Field -- i.e., the words of Einstein that “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” -- the form that is impressed into the shape that we see, is an allegorical representation of the aspect of mind that the symbol expresses.   In the same way that a phallic symbol which was used by the ancients expresses the male generative power, the penis itself expresses an aspect of mind that is universal.   And this is true not only of all the parts of the body, but also everything that exists in the outer world -- which is merely a larger scale and pattern of mind expressed and impressed into matter -- i.e., mental-imagery.    Which means that a dog, appears to us in that physical form that we see and interact with as a K9, because of the underlying aspect of mind and consciousness that is represented in the physical form of a dog.   A dog, therefore, is an aspect of mind impressed into the form of nature which we observe.   When Jesus warned not to give what is holy to dogs, what he was presenting was the reality that a dog represents a condition of mind projected into the forms of matter that we see -- and people who are ruled over by this condition of mind, are incapable of comprehending what is holy.   And from an enlightened perspective, a swine, is a swine, because of the underlying aspect of mind and consciousness that is represented in the form of the swine.

  Thought Animated Symbols: The Egyptians expressed themselves in hieroglyphs -- and much of the Chinese languages represent thoughts impressed into symbols -- and when properly understood, everything that we see and interact with in the outer world is merely the thoughts of the Great Mind expressed in the allegorical forms of matter -- i.e., mental-imagery.   The Gospel of Thomas declares: "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."  Which provokes the question: If the Kingdom of God lies before you, why, then, do you not see it?  the answer is that because our physical senses are made-up of earth-matter, in their Natural state they are only capable of perceptive-sensing what is of an earth-frequency of vibration.   In the subheading Nothing Hidden Or Concealed, I explore the reality that all the secrets of Creation lies before you -- but because organic man exists in an embryonic undeveloped state, he only perceives a very limited (allegorical) reality.  To the degree that this reality is explored in the subheading Truth Cannot Exist In The World.   It cannot exist on the lips of the scientist -- the lips of a teacher or professor -- or on the lips of a celebrated clergy or philosopher.   Why?   Because what you perceive is an allegorical image of a higher reality -- the Wholeness and Completion of which, is simply beyond your perceptive-comprehension.   The Mystic authors of the scriptures knew and understood this principle of reality, and they employed the process of Anamnesis as the absolute Key to Enlightenment, Completion and Wholeness -- see also The Gospels Embody The Principles Of Anamnesis .

If you could take the vast realities of our own mind and express each aspect of mind in the form of a symbol that would animate the thought that each represents, then you would begin to grasp the reality of man as dwelling within an illusion that is an allusion -- i.e., a Matrix of mind expressed into symbols which animate each thought that is the building blocks of consciousness.   And thus, we can begin to grasp the higher reality expressed by G.R.S. Mead, a foremost authority on the Gnostics, in his book entitled Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, where this explanation of the true nature of the scriptures is put forth: “…what the Gnostics projected onto the screen… [in the form of a ] picture of the universe was in reality a picture of their own minds. Its mythology is a symbolic portrayal, almost a deliberate one, of the forces which operate in the structuring and evolution of the human personality”.   And upon encountering these same patterns of thought in the dreams and thinking of his patients, was the reason that Carl Jung called the Gnostic Christians the worlds first and foremost psychologists who understood the very fabric of human consciousness.   Why did he come to recognize what the Gnostics were presenting?    He found that many of his patients who knew absolutely nothing about either the Gnostics or scriptures, were in fact dreaming in these same symbolic symbols -- and thus, he began to recognize that the authors of the scriptures wrote in what is called the (allegorical) Universal Language of the Soul.

It as if we are looking at a child's picture-book where aspects of mind are presented to us in enigmatic and allegorical animated forms and images that have been impressed into Nature.   In their animated form with which we interact, they convey to us a reality of mind that exists within each of us.   And this is why the Gospel of Thomas proclaims: "Jesus said, Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."  When rightly understood, what you are observing when you gaze outwardly are animated aspects of Mind impressed into the forms of Nature you are observing and interacting with you, that convey to you the mental qualities that these aspects of mind represent within your own consciousness.   Jesus warned "...not to give what is holy to dogs" -- and it is not the four-legged variety of dogs that he was making reference to.  The unclean animals in the Torah are representative of aspects of consciousness that must be transformed within the seeker's own mind and being, to make them serve their higher heavenly opposite (see Animal Sacrifice).  When Jesus therefore portrays some people as dogs, this is because they are ruled over by what the consciousness of the dog manifests in both the Divine Mind and the Soul-Mind -- that is ruling over the person who can be likened to the qualities personified in a dog.  And this is also true of all the animals of nature -- each impressed with a fragmented consciousness of the whole of the animal kingdom.  But it is important to recognize that in the same way that on one level the animal consciousness appears to be independent, on another level is it intimately connected -- both to God, our Higher Soul-Self, as well as our own consciousness.  And there are people who can look at a person's (undressed) body, and see the faces of the animals that comprise that person's lower nature.  And the ability to actually release the lower animal nature and consciousness to accomplish tasks for the person, is an integral part of the ancient Hawaiian religion of Huna -- as well as other indigenous religions that were more in tune with man's lower nature.  The movie, The Emerald Forest (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Emerald_Forest and the DVD at https://www.amazon.com/Emerald-Forest-Powers-Boothe/dp/B0000542C6 ) presents an indigenous tribe who possess this ability.   And if the Europeans who crossed the ocean had learned from the Native Americans how to release their lower animal nature to perform tasks -- as a person would use a trained dog -- then their understanding of the life they were living would have been greatly enhanced. 

When the biblical authors stated that man's higher Soul-Reality was beyond his comprehension (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ), a really big obstacle to his comprehension is in his inability to understand his own lower animal nature.  We enter this life to achieve Wholeness across the spectrum of the seven kingdoms that provide us the bio-energy or vital life-force upon which our consciousness is manifest.  Being holographically created in the image of our Source of Being, we are allotted a vertical slice of our Higher Soul-Self, which is imbued with a vertical slice of the Divine Mind -- which means that our lower animal nature is an integral part of our mind and consciousness -- and the evolution and development of our lower animal nature is what is allegorically set forth in the Torah as Animal Sacrifice (see Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#AnimalTemple ).  If the Jews had not thrown away what Jesus called the Key of Knowledge by interpreting the scriptures outwardly -- instead of turning the scriptures within their own mind and being -- the Jews would have understood that it was their own lower animal nature that was being allegorical set forth as in need of transformation (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   And it was this lower animal nature that Paul was making reference to when he proclaimed: “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).

All Opposites are male/female in relation to each other  -- and the three kingdoms of your lower nature are the reflective (feminine) opposites of your higher (male) heavenly nature -- and the two must be joined in order to achieve Wholeness in the Center -- i.e., "...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".   How much you achieve in this life will be dependent upon how much of your lower nature you can merge and make ONE with your higher heavenly nature of the upper three kingdoms above the fourth kingdom of man.  And this esoteric reality is explored in the subheading The Gospel Enigma That Modern Christians Can't Comprehend http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org#GospelEnigma . Quoting from this link:
 

In the same way that genetically, the embryo that forms the body when an infant is born into this world is the merger and balance of 23 pairs of chromosomes from the mother and father, what is being presented in the words of the Gospel of Thomas -- i.e., "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..." -- is the means by which the Feminine-Intuitive and Male-Linear opposite spheres of mind within the pattern of the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life must be brought into a state of Evolved Wholeness and Oneness, in order for the mind of the seeker to evolve beyond what Paul portrays as an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature), and for the Kingdom to come in the manner that was promised in the Gospel -- i.e., "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:17).  Which provokes the question: Overcomes what?  Overcome the division of the Tree of Duality of the person's own mind as explored in the article The Tree Of Life -- as personified in the statement: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7). Which spiritually transformative process is personified in the words of the Gospel of Thomas: "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".


When this crucial teaching of Jesus that was removed from our traditional Gospels portrays "...the above like the below", it is making reference to the lower three earthly kingdoms with the upper three heavenly kingdoms. When the above teaching states "when you make the male and the female one and the same", it is making reference to the male/female outer columns of the Tree of Duality being brought into the Center Column of the Tree of Life.  The inside and the outside is of course when you are able to bring the reflective images of the outer world with the reality of the inner.  And when you can bring the whole shebang into the Center, only then can you achieve Wholeness -- experiencing the next stage of birth -- and becoming a Child of the Kingdom.   Now if the above is complex, the next part must be considered ultra-complex. Because TIME is a dimension of mind and consciousness -- and all the (failed) images portrayed in Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see beginning at Man As An Embryonic Soul Image http://SoulSelf.org#EmbryonicSoulImage ), where in the Soul Mind-Matrix each of the (failed) images continue to exist as nerve endings or dendrites that connect the upper three kingdoms with the Soul with the lower three kingdoms -- thereby creating a type of permanent connection between the upper mind of the Soul with the lower mind.   And this is one of the Higher Soul Realities that Paul warned would be rejected as "foolishness" by Christians of the simple-faith, as well as all of organic man. 

If you entered what I call the Realm of Souls, you would encounter each person in their true form as a Being of Light.   What is the Source of this Divine Light?  Each Soul is the embodiment of the Light that it has developed over the course of all the lives that Soul has lived from the Alpha of Creation to the Present.  Most Souls have made very little progress -- they are followers of the various groups they are attached to -- and when observed in the Realm of Souls, they exist as weak flickering distant stars.  The more advanced the Soul, the greater the depth and intensity of the Light of that Soul.  Political, cultural, philosophical and religious leaders are what can be portrayed as advanced Souls -- and they re-enter from life to life with other Souls who are part of their entourage of Souls who are karmically attached each other and to the group their Soul has incarnated with.  While all groups enter to grow and develop, other groups are subject to what can be portrayed as negative-karma because of that Soul-groups past actions where they violated the freedom and rights of others.   Many of these groups dwell in what Jesus portrays The Prison (see http://outerdarkness.nazirene.org/#ThePrison ).  The leaders today, are the same leaders written about in the history books.  All the despots of the past, are on the worlds stage at present continuing their struggles with their adversaries.   Often, the sides have been switched -- with past victims becoming aggressors, while aggressors in the past recast in the role of victims.  

Many of the mainstream Reform and Conservative Jews were angered when Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan, the former chief rabbi of Israel -- a religious scholar who was also the spiritual leader of the Shas party -- made the statement that no innocent Jews died in the Holocaust.  What Rabbi Yosefan said was 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.”   Rabbi Yosefan explained that these Souls who had previously lived lives of sin, “…had been reincarnated in order to atone.”   Immediately, all sectors of the population -- from then Prime Minister Barak, to the Holocaust survivors -- condemned the rabbi's remarks.   In a communiqué issued from his office, Barak stated: “His words are liable to harm the memory of those who perished in the Holocaust and are liable to hurt the feelings of their families and the feelings of the entire nation.”

Legislator Yosef (Tommy) Lapid, who had been himself a Holocaust survivor who at that time headed the secularist Shinui party, condemned Rabbi Yosef’s statements and said he was “… in effect confirming what Hitler said, that the Jews are sinners.”    Holocaust organizations and the two main Israeli radio stations reported that they were inundated with phone calls and fax messages, most of them criticizing Yosef's statement.   The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum labeled Yosef's remarks “miserable” and said they “seriously harm the memory of the victims.”    In a released statement the museum said: “With all due respect to such a leader, it's hard to understand where Rabbi Yosef gets the courage to explain the intentions and ways of the supreme authority.”    Attempting to clarify his words in the following week to a populace that did not comprehend one of the most paramount teachings of both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, Rabbi Yosef cited a 16th century Jewish mystic, Isaac Luria, who wrote: “If the Soul was not purified entirely the first time, and it left this world, that Soul must come back in a reincarnation, even a few times, until it is entirely purified.”

What Rabbi Yosef stated was that all those Jews who died at the hands of Hitler, were merely reaping their own debts they had themselves committed in a previous life (see The Laws That Control Our Lives http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsThatControlOurLives ).   And while the secular Jewish leaders were offended by his statement, Rabbi Yosef did not state that they were Jews when they committed the sins that invoked the Laws of Cause and Effect upon them.   From the perspective of the Laws that pseudo-authorities are in denial of, the scriptures state: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV).   And this could just as well be expressed in the words: The chickens of those people who suffered under Hitler, had come home to roost -- and in that life they inherited the fruit of their own past actions.  

What the Rabbi suggested was that, even though we may appear to be the innocent victim in this present life, this was not always the case -- and each of us inherits both the good and the evil that we have personally and collectively engendered in the previous existences our Soul has lived prior to our being born into the present life we are now living -- as so clearly stated in the words of the Church Father Origen when he wrote: “Every Soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).   Thus, the common message proclaimed, was the confirmation of the great biblically defined truth that what goes around comes around: “Even as I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same” (Job 4:8 NKJ); “Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies” (Prov 1:31 NKJ); “But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception” (Hosea 10:13 NIV); “God will give to each person according to what he has done” (Rom 2:6 NIV); “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” (Gal 6:7-8 NIV); “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ); “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man” (Gen 9:6 NIV); “His disciples asked him [Jesus], Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” (Jn 9:2 NIV).   Yet, because certain New Testament teachings were removed by the Pagan Church of Rome, modern Christians are at a total loss when they attempt to explain how the Laws work in the life of man -- and even the very reason why bad things seemingly happed to good people -- or why a benevolent God ordains the good and evil that man is incapable of understanding (see The Laws That Control Our Lives ).

  The Light Of Spiritually Advanced Souls: In Spirit, those who can be portrayed as a Spiritually Advanced Soul, would appear as a Great Overpowering and Deep Light.  And this Soul-Reality should provoke a number of important questions: What is the source of this Great Light?   Why are the vast majority of Souls undeveloped, and are perceived as weak flickering lights?  While more advanced Souls as more intense lights with greater depth?  While what can be portrayed as a Spiritually Advanced Soul, would be perceived as Great Lights?  In fact, only in this world of Commonality, can an undeveloped Soul, a more advanced Soul, and a Great Spiritually Advanced Soul appear to be on the same level of equality.   Thus, the question must be asked: What is the source of the Light of the Soul?   And because few people possess the Light of Higher Understanding, this also is one of the major flaws in the thinking of those people (both East and West) who imagine that the body is a mere vessel they are inhabiting that will be cast away when they have competed their present lives.  From an Eastern perspective where it is taught that the Soul jumps from body to body in each succeeding life until the wheel of reincarnation is broken, I have heard the statement that the body is like an automobile -- and in the same way that one gets rid of an old car, the Soul discards an old body and acquires a new one as a vehicle while in this world.  We have all heard the rhetoric: "I am a spiritual being, living a physical life" -- but this concept embraced by many, is simply not exactly true.   By being created in the "image" of God, each Soul has been imbued with what can be said to be a vertical slice of Creation.   @@@

 

The body that you are presently inhabiting is a vertical slice of the lower nature of your own Higher Soul-Self that you have entered into the physical to refine and transform.   In the same way that each Higher Soul-Self inherits a vertical slice of Creation -- you, as a Soul-generated personality, inherit a vertical slice of your Higher Soul-Self.  As explored in the subheading, The Folly Of Original Sin: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#OriginalSin where the Wisdom of Solomon is quoted as stating: “Now I was a child good by nature, and… being good, I came into a body undefiled”.  

Each person's ability to learn, advance, and comprehend man's higher reality, is all dependent upon the Condition of the lower three kingdoms of that Soul which the Soul-generated personality inherited when entering into a life.   Again quoting the Church Father Origen from the previous link on Original Sin: “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 [an untarnished wedding garment] 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”.  

When Origen makes reference to the reality that each person, "...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", what is being presented is the Laws of Creation that orchestrate each one of the lives a Soul lives based upon the accomplishments of that Soul (see The Laws That Control Our Lives http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsThatControlOurLives ).   And because the Laws of Creation are imbued with the power to evolve each and every Soul from the Alpha of Ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light -- presenting to each Soul a Labyrinth of choices that test and open the opportunity of advancement -- what the Church Father Origin portrays is a great Truth that is not at all understood in modern times.     

What Origen is stating is that when a Soul-generated personality enters this life and inherits a physical body that has been put through the process of refinement -- with the animal nature evolved, domesticated and made a faithful servant to that Soul's Higher Spiritual Nature -- that Soul-personality as a "vessel of honor", is able to make great gains based upon the opportunities and choices that Soul-generated personality makes.   When Paul speaks of organic "natural" man's inability to comprehend man's higher Soul-Reality because he is of an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature), it is because the vertical slice of that Soul's lower (animal) nature which the Soul-generated personality inherited, was never refined and evolved -- a reality that Origen portrays as a "vessel of dishonor".   And this is why organic man in the Gospel of the Nazirenes is portrayed as beasts who walk in the form of man.   Further, this is why Paul wrote of the necessity to "…beat my body and make it my slave..." (1 Cor 9:27 NIV) -- and why Christians are commanded to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV) -- with the warning: “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).   When Gospel of Thomas saying 22 states the requirement to make the "below and the above" one and the same, it is because the lower three earthly Spiritual Centers serve as a (reflective) foundation for the upper three heavenly Spiritual Centers -- and all seven Centers must be in balanced-wholeness, in order to manifest the White Light that forms from the segments of the rainbow -- i.e., Genesis 9:13 reads: "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth"

When Jesus taught the multitudes of people in parables -- 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) -- those people among the multitudes who had entered that life with a refined and evolved lower nature, were able to understand with greater clarity and comprehension the spiritual meaning of the parable.   While the multitudes only heard parabolic accounts, those more evolved Souls who entered life as a "vessel of honor", perceived and comprehended what the vast majority of the multitudes of people could not.  Which reality of carnal imposed deafness, blindness and barrier to higher understanding prompted the Wycliffe Bible Commentary to write 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...”    With the far-reaching implications embodied in the reality that "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”.   And while this is true, what must be examined is the meaning of the term "initiate" as one who has evolved to the level where they can be portrayed as IN THE HOUSE -- where the multitudes are portrayed as being "without" (see In The House). 

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" refines and evolves the lower nature within which the seed of the Soul has been planted at conception, and 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. 

The word "initiate" as used by the Wycliffe Bible Commentary, should be understood as a person who has inherited a refined and evolved lower nature by virtue of the previous accomplishments of their Higher Soul-Self.   And this is why Jesus could talk to the multitudes, and only the more advanced Souls would understand the spiritual meaning.   This is also true with respect to the allegorical meaning of the scriptures (see An Inconvenient Truth http://AnInconvenientTruth.org ) -- wherein, the perception and comprehension of each reader is in relation to not only their own ability to comprehend -- but even their ability to understand why the scriptures are composed in the allegorical Language of the Soul, is contingent upon the refinement and evolution of the lower nature they inherited when Soul-generated into any given life.   The authors of the scriptures understood this reality of mankind and human nature -- and they therefore composed the whole of their sacred writings in allegory and parables within a parable.   The authors of the scriptures were Mystics Who Were Hunted Down As Heretics -- and they understood the need to employ the body of faith-based believers as a type of Mule who would perform the important function of preserving the essential (esoteric) body of knowledge that was concealed and hidden within the body of the written text of the parabolic writings.  In view of the fact that the authors of the scriptures all understood that their more advanced Souls would return in the future, in many instances the body of concealed knowledge that was transported by the faith-based mules, enabled them to restore and regenerate themselves in Soul-generated future lives.   After regeneration and rebirth, they would then be in a position to assist and guide the faith-based believers into a greater understanding of the scriptures and a more spiritual comprehension of man's true reality.

Is the mind of an infant empty?  Or does the infant possess the innate ability to tap into a pre-existing source of knowledge within himself that exceeds all of the wisdom of this world that he could be taught in the traditional manner?   Modern academia, our culture and mainstream religions, all base their teachings upon the empty-mind philosophy -- which is in total opposition to the scriptures and the wisdom of the wise and enlightened ancients.   And when rightly understood, modern faith-based believers fail to understand the very foundation of the scriptures they promote, because they fail to understand even the nature and purpose of the Gospels.  The scriptures are based upon the process of anamnesis -- or, drawing from a pre-existing source within the child/person's own mind.  Under the heading of Anamnesis (Philosophy), the Wikipedia states: It is the idea that humans possess knowledge from past incarnations and that learning consists of rediscovering that knowledge within us. The article then goes on to say: "Socrates' response is to develop his theory of anamnesis. He suggests that the Soul is immortal, and repeatedly incarnated; knowledge is actually in the Soul from eternity...  What one perceives to be learning, then, is actually the recovery of what one has forgotten. (Once it has been brought back it is true belief, to be turned into genuine knowledge by understanding.) And thus Socrates (and Plato) sees himself, not as a teacher, but as a midwife, aiding with the birth of knowledge that was already there in the student."   And this is why the Apostle Peter is quoted in the writings of his disciple Clement as stating with respect to 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"   Why should the scriptures not be read and understood in accord with "an extraneous sense, which you have brought from without"?   Because the whole of the scriptures are an allegorical presentation using and employing catalysts that connect the outer physical consciousness with the pre-existing inner Soul and spiritual consciousness -- which when rightly understood, is the very essence of the process of anamnesis.  Therefore, when you attempt to teach the meaning of the scriptures, you negate the catalysts and symbols that are contained in the scriptural body, and you inhibit and atrophie the development of those areas of mind that must be developed in order to tap into this inner Source of Knowledge.  Further, this is why Jesus commanded his disciples that they can only have ONE TEACHER -- the True Prophet or Logos -- that dwells within them at the very Core of their Consciousness (see True Prophet).   With respect to this ONE TEACHER that the followers of Jesus were commanded to seek out exclusively, Peter taught that 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."  In their abandonment of the Gospel First Principles and the One Source of the Truth of all Truths that is drawn out through the process of Anamnesis, the modern Christian world has virtually nothing in common with the purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings.  But what this also means is that the more we learn in the traditional manner as embraced by academia, the more we suppress those innate resources of mind that have the ability to tap into this Inner Source of Ultimate Truth (see Academia And The Feminist Cultural War On Women http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AcademiaWarOnWomen ).  And with respect to the true meaning of the scriptures: the more we study commentaries, attend Bible study groups, and the teachings of traditional religious institutions and authorities, the more we alienate ourselves from the True and Spiritual meaning of the Gospels.

Mankind is portrayed in the parable of the two sons as the younger son who abandons the Kingdom of the Father, and squanders away his divine inheritance on "riotous living" in this realm which is called the Far Country -- also portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which, when rightly understood, parallels the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions (see Cave).  In the Gospel of Thomas this world is portrayed in the rather profound statement: (56) Jesus said, "He who has come to understand this world shall discover (only) a corpse, and whoever has discovered a corpse shall transcend beyond this world."    Which implies the reality, that the only means by which mankind can be restored to his original condition, is to transcend and move beyond the limitations of this world -- i.e., the Far Country that is not his place of origin.   And this was and remains the ONLY objective of the authors of the scriptures in the composition of their Sacred Writings.  

 

 

In the fourth century the Church of Constantine took the most corrupted copies of the scriptures and further edited them to make them reflect the (Mithraic) beliefs of Pagan Rome.   What they did was inhibit the Christian world from using the scriptures for their intended purpose as the Key of Knowledge -- removing the most important spiritual teachings and concepts -- and reframing them as mere historical accounts.  And in this respect the Church Father Origen portrayed the historical facade of the literal text as virtually worthless -- i.e., “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).   In the same way that the Gospel of Thomas portrays the wisdom and knowledge of this world as a "corpse", Origen correctly portrays what we teach in academia, our churches, and our cultural wisdom as worthless "shadow" faux-knowledge.  Why?  Because whatever is genuine in this world connects the outer with the inner, the below with the above -- i.e., 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" (Gospel Of Thomas).   The objective of the scriptures was to connect the prodigal sons and daughters who are lost in this, the Far Country of the Outer Darkness of Mind and Being, with their Inner Source.   Using the process of Anamnesis and the symbols of the scriptures as catalysts to connect "...the inside [with] the outside ...and the above [with] the below ..[thereby] making the male and the female one and the same" -- enabling the prodigal sons and daughters to be restored to the Kingdom.   But the rewriting and corruption of the scriptures in the Churches attempt to only support the historical facade, has inhibited the faith-based believers from fulfilling the Original Objectives and Purpose of the Gospels.  

To their own detriment, the leaders of the modern church ignore the warning of the Apostle: “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).    Not to depreciate or make less the significance of any one of the individual statements presented in the above words, what the modern believer must recognized is the far-reaching totality of the statement: But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction”.   Ultimately, what this means to the modern believer is that each and every church authority from the fourth-century to the present, as well as every single preacher of the gospel, speaks from the position of concession -- which concession is that there is a great void in their knowledge of the truth.   Thus, one of the core presumptions upon which our present-day doctrine of faith is based, is that these words of the Apostle Paul are not true.        One of the major causes of the present state of doctrinal chaos is the failure of modern pastors and church authorities to recognize that the key to their dilemma is found in the prediction of the Apostle that there would come a time of total abandonment of the Gospel with respect to the desolation of all genuine spiritual Christian ideas and concepts.   

The purpose of the Gospels was to restore the prodigal sons to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination which is their True Source.   The objective of the god of this world which in the parable is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country, is to keep the prodigal sons shackled to the things of this world.   Which meant that the most important spiritual teachings in the Gospels had to be removed, while the scriptures themselves rewritten to support only the historical facade of the written word which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).  The first of the scriptures to get a rewrite and pagan makeover, was the Book of Acts.  When the further corruption of the scriptures was seen by both the Ebionite Nazirenes and the Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians, they buried seven (7) caches of scriptures in accord with the numbers and places in the already edited Book of Acts, that would enable these more pure copies of scriptures to be recovered in the future.   And because of the advent of a coming spiritual rebirth, this is why both the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library of scriptures was discovered in the 1945-47 timeframe.  And the importance of these scriptures is explored in my introduction to the Gospel of Thomas (see http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org ).   Because the more spiritually advanced Souls were born into physical bodies where the lower animal nature was more refined and evolved, these more advanced Souls could read these more pure scriptures, and begin to perceive the deeper spiritual meaning that lied concealed beneath the facade of the written text.   Thus, in the same way that it was written of Jesus that: "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) -- those whose lower animal nature was more refined and evolved, were able to comprehend the higher spiritual meaning of the parable.   And in much the same way, the many healings and miracles in the written text of the scriptures, possess a deeper spiritual meaning that could only be seen and comprehended by those with the spiritual eyes and understanding to perceive the deeper spiritual meaning that was lying concealed beneath the facade of the written text that Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14). 

Thus, the great looming question: What is the Source of the Great Light of a Spiritually Advanced Soul?  The Answer that is not at all understood in modern times: Because, as stated above, TIME is a dimension of Mind -- and the past lives of each Soul continue to dwell within what can be portrayed as the Soul Mind-Matrix -- portrayed by St. Teresa of Avila in the reality 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).  Each Soul-generated personality which the Soul has lived through, dwells in what St. Teresa portrays as a single room within the Soul-Manson or Matrix.   And when this Higher Reality is understood, the Light of the Soul is the product of the above personification of Gospel of Thomas saying 22 -- i.e., the merger of the lower with the upper, the left with the right, and the inner and the outer -- across the spectrum of TIME -- manifesting in the present in the Light of Each Individual Soul.  Which means that the Intensity and Depth of Light of each Soul is the product (across the dimension of Time) of the connections and merger of male/female opposites as manifest in the upper/lower, left/right and inner/outer aspects of Soul-Mind through the personalities that the Soul has lived. 

@@@

In the same way that within the Mind of God the ALL Exists across the spectrum of the Seven Kingdoms -- and each Soul is as a vertical slice of the Divine Pie Of Creation, holographically containing all aspects of Creation -- the animal kingdom is an integral part of the Mind of God, also the Mind of the Soul, and as well the mind of man.  And when the Soul-personality/image is generated and made part of the body at conception, the body of that person is formed by the lower three kingdoms coming together within the womb of the mother -- which lower nature collected from the lower three kingdoms, then forms the physical body of the fetus.  Man is of the Fourth Kingdom -- and brings together within himself the three upper Heavenly Kingdoms and the three lower Earthly Kingdoms.   But at physical death, the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms are released back into nature where they continue their existence as the animals of this world.  This process is somewhat explored at the subheading Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature.  Which means that the animals that man interacts with in the outer world, are very much the lower nature of people who are not presently manifest in the earth -- but it is important to understand that these animals in the outer world are acting as catalysts for each person to interact with their own lower animal nature.  Which means that if you eat the flesh of dead animals, you are strengthening the beast of your own lower nature -- thereby inhibiting the process of refinement and and evolution -- and karmically, your own lower animal nature once released back into the world, will suffer the same fate you subject the animal kingdom to. Quoting from the foregoing link:

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.

With respect to the Fourth Kingdom and the upper three heavenly and lower three earthly kingdoms, Manly P. Hall wrote in The Secret Teachings Of All Ages: "Man’s three bodies are symbolized by an upright triangle; his threefold spiritual nature by an inverted triangle. These two triangles, when united in the form of a six-pointed star, were called by the Jews 'the Star of David,' 'the Signet of Solomon,' and are more commonly known today as 'the Star of Zion.' These triangles symbolize the spiritual and material universes linked together in the constitution of the human creature, who partakes of both Nature and Divinity. Man’s animal nature partakes of the earth; his divine nature of the heavens; his human nature of the mediator.” ( Manly P. Hall).    So long as man is motivated and controlled by the appetites and the consciousness of the lower three kingdoms, he will remain immersed in what Paul portrayed as "animal-Soul" consciousness that is incapable of higher comprehension.   And while man can attempt to negate and suppress his carnal animal appetites and consciousness -- while focusing on the upper three centers in the head -- without the balanced development of all the spiritual centers it will remain impossible to achieve Wholeness -- and without Wholeness, it will remain impossible to initiate and achieve the next stage of Soul-Birth.   Where it is written in the above that man's "human nature" must be the moderator between the upper three and lower three kingdoms which must be brought into the Center as portrayed in the version of Gospel of Thomas saying 22 that has been preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes: "And one of the disciples asked him, 'How shall a man enter into the Kingdom?" And he answered and said, "If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God.'"   To enter into the Center requires all twelve spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life ( http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ) to be fully evolved and existing in a state of harmonic-balance -- which means that the male/female outer columns of the Tree of Duality must be brought together in the Center -- which can only be accomplished when the division of the upper three and lower three spiritual centers are brought together in the Center.    

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 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.
It isn't that man incarnates as an animal -- but rather, at physical death his animal nature is returned back into nature in accord with the (consciousness) form it has evolved to.  And this same animal nature will once again form the physical body the next time the Soul incarnates into another Soul-personality.  And this is why in the Gospel of the Nazirenes (see http://GospelOfTheNazirenes.org ), the animal kingdom is portrayed as our lesser brothers.  And karmically, as we do to the animals we encounter in this life, the same will be returned back to your own animal nature.  On the other hand, the vegetable kingdom is very much as the Soul of the lower three kingdoms -- which is why the Alice Bailey writings (see http://theconsecratedlife.ebionite.com/#Theosophy ) can be quoted as stating: "One point of interest might here be noted. It is known esoterically that the vegetable kingdom is the transmitter and the transformer of the vital pranic fluid to the other forms of life on our planet. That is its divine and unique function. This pranic fluid, in its form of the astral light, is the reflector of the divine akasha. The second plane therefore reflects itself in the astral plane. Those who seek to read the akashic records, or who endeavour to work upon the astral plane with impunity, and there to study the reflection of events in the astral light correctly, have perforce and without exception to be strict vegetarians".

In the same way that the vegetable kingdom supplies organic life with life-giving oxygen, the vegetable kingdom supplies man with life-giving Light that is the balance of the three lower kingdom -- and is the only food that a sincere seeker should eat:  "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). 

 

  The Matrix Of Soul-Mind: How does the Soul Grow It's Light?  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 Soul-generated image which lived as a person, must eventually return to it's Source, and 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 when they return to their Source in the Higher Soul-Self, 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 (see The Laws Of Creation ) -- 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 their 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.

To understand the Source of Soul-Light, it is imperative to understand the Cosmology of Mind and the Soul Mind-Matrix where all the previous Soul-generated personalities that the Soul has lived as, not only continue to dwell in what the mystic St. Teresa portrayed 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 the castle or mansion of the Soul exists the previously Soul-generated personalities that continue to make the connection between the upper three Heavenly Kingdoms and the lower three Earthly Kingdoms in that Soul's individual slice of the vertical pie of Creation.  Light, is the product of the merger of Opposites within each Soul -- as portrayed in Gospel of Thomas saying 22: 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".  In each life the Soul lives as a Soul-generated personality, connections are made that connect the foregoing opposites within the Mind of the Soul=Self -- i.e., "...the inside [with] the outside ...and the above [with] the below ..[thereby] making the male and the female one and the same" -- and once the Soul-generated personalities are re-attached to their Source in the Higher Soul-Self, they act as dynamic neurons in the Mind of the Soul that grows the Light of the Soul.   

How much Light each Soul-generated personality can add to the Soul-Self, is totally dependent upon the degree that they accomplished and fulfilled the above requirement of the Gospel of Thomas:  "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".   And it is those Soul-generated personalities that actually achieve the next stage of birth and fulfill the Law and the Gospel within themselves, that become the Source of the Light of the Soul.   And it is this reality within the Soul Mind-Matrix that is presented in 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 The images that failed to become manifest, are those Soul-generated personalities that were basically followers to the thinking, mindset and cultural/religious lifestyles of this world -- and being of this world, they failed to achieve the next stage of Soul-Birth that is necessary to become Manifest.   And this is why the vast majority of Souls appear as weak flickering lights.   Yet, even in the failure of these Soul-generated images/personalities, they continue to exist as building-blocks that act as a connection and catalyst of advancement by connecting the upper three Heavenly Kingdoms with the lower three Earthly Kingdoms -- thereby bringing together the Seven Spiritual Centers that Create the White Light of the Soul-Self.   While it is true that each life that can be portrayed as a failed-image does not become Manifest, these Soul-generated personalities continue to act as low-level catalysts that connect the Upper and the Lower across the spectrum of the Seven Kingdom as they continue to exist within the Soul Mind-Matrix.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Capture Every Thought To Christ (2 Cor 10:5): In the Epistle to the Corinthians Paul commands to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" -- but how can such a reality be achieved?  To affirm this requirement as genuine, the Gospel account of Jesus warns: "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment" (Matt 12:36 KJV).  Idle words can be defined as those thoughts or impressions which are not, and cannot, be returned to the Source in the upper Heavenly Kingdom sphere of the Tree of Life.  Which is why Paul tells us to "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17 KJV).  

We dwell in a holographic reality where the Divine Pattern is replicated into all the pieces and aspects that make it up.   But to understand a holographic pattern, you must recognize how to apply the pattern at every level.   The strength of a holographic reality is seen in the fact that if you understand and properly apply the pattern at every level, you are then able to move through the levels and eventually arrive at the Top.   The weakness of a holographic reality is seen in the fact that every sub-level appears to be complete.   And it is this illusion of completeness that holds man captive -- and even a prisoner -- in what is portrayed in the Gospels as the "outer darkness" of mind and being, which parallels the analogy of Plato's Cave wherein man is portrayed as a prisoner in the Cave of Illusions.   Atheists see nothing beyond this world of physical appearances.   Charles Darwin created his Theory of Evolution which proclaims that no non-physical forces had any part in the creation of this world.   And thus, the blindness of both the Atheist, and Darwin, is the result of their inability to perceive beyond the barrier of the holographic reality in which they dwell.   That when rightly understood, the limited perceptive and cognitive reality that is holographically presented in the Gospel portrayal of the "outer darkness", or the analogy of Plato's Cave, has been proven to be correct by modern physicists (see Science - Religion - And The Ætheric Field/Mind), modern science has demonstrated the error of the Atheist and Darwin.   And when the purpose of this world is fully understood, the fact of the matter is that Atheists and men such as Darwin are not supposed to be able to perceive beyond the barrier of this holographic reality -- that is, not until they begin to achieve a degree of Wholeness within themselves.   The mind of man remains bound and trapped in its present organic condition, until a mature degree of Wholeness is achieved.

A holographic reality repeats itself in every level of its being.  What this means is that in the same way in accord with the holographic pattern that the physical body of man is the product of the generative essence of male and female, it is also true on the next (holographic) level, that when born into this world, man is himself a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm -- and he is therefore an aspect of the Cosmic Tree of Life.   Which means that to begin to escape the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- or to escape being a prisoner in Plato's Cave of Illusions -- man must develop himself through the process of deepening and expanding the Mind, by fulfilling the Divine Pattern and the Laws within himself -- i.e., instituting an environment of Wholeness within his own Mind and Being.   In the above (see Lack Of Development Beyond The Organic) I demonstrate that what can be portrayed as "natural" human consciousness, is limited to the Earth 1/12 in each of the twelve spheres of mind.   But as the mind begins to mature, so too does the other 11/12ths of each sphere of mind begin to develop -- thereby permitting varying degrees of Wholeness to be achieved.    But contrary to our cultural thinking, maturity cannot be achieved through the rote programming which is done in our educational systems and universities -- but rather, the mind can only be developed and expanded beyond the 1/12th level, through the interaction of the paradoxical opposites.   Therefore, to even begin to accomplish this process of allegorical transformation within ourselves, me must begin by understanding that the body is surrounded (and even immersed) by the mind -- and what we perceive in the physical (body), is in reality an allegorical portrayal of the mind.   Which means that the mind is not only the brain, but is manifest in every aspect of the body -- from a person's toes, to the hairs on their head -- all of the body is an allegorical image projected into the physical which is immersed in the Field or Atmosphere of the Mind. 

In understanding that the mind is in the Ætheric Field which surrounds and immerses the body in a similar manner that the earth is surrounded by its atmosphere, as stated above, it is important to understand that (holographically) all thoughts are generated in that part of the mind associated with the sex-centers of the body -- which is why the many prohibitions against fornication and adultery exist in the scriptures and the Bible.   Therefore, the mystic understands that the physical sex-centers of man possess a deeper allegorical meaning of mind and spirit -- which also means that physical procreation is a byproduct of the sex-centers, and not the whole purpose of these centers of generation.   Therefore, once it is recognized that all thoughts are generated in the spheres of mind of the Tree of Life associated with the organs of generation -- that man and woman when joined as "one flesh", are half of each other as a Cosmic Embryo -- and while these thoughts and impressions have the innate potential to be returned to the Source in the uppermost sphere of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life diagram at the right, the ability of the seeker/disciple to fulfill the requirement of capturing every thought and making it obedient to Christ, is dependent upon creating the necessary environment of the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed within their own mind, being and life, in order to permit and allow the thoughts and impressions to be formed in the lower Earthly Kingdom of the pattern of the Tree of Life, arise in transformative maturity and return to the Source in the upper Heavenly Kingdom.    But to accomplish this, the thoughts and impressions must prevail over the division of the outer columns of the Tree of Duality -- being united to its opposite half -- and arise through the Center Tree of Life.   Which means that Linear (male) and Intuitive (female) Impressions must be joined (and made "one flesh"), in order to mature and arise into the higher plane.    

When Jesus accused the leaders of the Jews of throwing away the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) in their carnal interpretations of the scriptures -- interpreting the scriptures outwardly, instead of turning them within -- understanding their meaning as pertaining to the Inner Tree of Life (see The Third Fatal Mistake) -- for doing this, Jesus portrayed the leaders of the Jews as blind guides.   The leaders of the Jews failed to understand not only the nature of the scriptures, but also the nature of this world with any enlightened depth.   In a holographic reality, anything that can be applied to the Macrocosm of the Cosmic Tree of Life, can equally be applied to the microcosm of the Internal Tree of Life.   Earthquakes, storms, wars, marriages, as well as any other outward event, place or phenomena, can be used to portray inward realities of mind and spirit.   And it was with this understanding and knowledge that the biblical authors composed their scriptures as the Key of Knowledge that when turned within self, enabled the seeker/disciple to escape the organic limitations of this world.   And this enlightened understanding was correctly set forth by the Church Father Origen who 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?"  Thus, in a holographic reality, whatever is presented as outward phenomena, can also be understood as existing within one's own mind and being -- especially "...marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever".   And in failing to understand that the outer world of man is a reflection of the inner, the leaders of the Jews were correctly portrayed as "blind guides".   But so too are modern religious and academic authorities equally as blind as were the Pharisees who Jesus condemned for throwing the Key of Knowledge away in their carnal interpretations and thinking.

  The Allegory Of Man Lying With Man: As an example of the foregoing: If the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) is properly applied to one's interpretation and understanding of the scriptures, then you must recognize that what is portrayed in the allegorical symbolism in the prohibition of a man lying with another man, has much more to do with the failure of the Linear (male) spheres of mind to join with their Intuitive (female) opposite half, than it does to the traditional outward portrayal in which most religious groups interpret this prohibition in Leviticus -- i.e., "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them" (Lev 20:13).   Without its opposite half, which is an opposite polarity, the (male) Linear and/or the (female) Intuitive of the outer columns of the Tree of Duality, is very much dead -- and the blood portrayed in the foregoing verse which equates to the spirit and vital life-force cannot arise and imbue with Life, and will thus be upon them in their death.   This same spiritual meaning would also be true in the allegorical case of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.    The message of Jesus in the Gospel states that "He that is Whole, need not a physician" (Matt 9:12).   Wholeness requires the divided (male) Linear and (female) Intuitive thoughts and impressions generated within the mind of the seeker to be joined and made whole -- i.e., "one flesh", so that the third-force balance or offspring can then be raised up to the next level or plane -- eventually enabling every thought or impression to be obedient and reunited to Christ.   Where in Genesis mankind is told to become "fruitful and multiply", from an allegorical perspective this commandment was made with respect to the expansion and deepening of mind that is necessary to bring about the next stage of birth.  

In the subheading, Man As A Cosmic Ovum And Sperm, I demonstrate that in accord with the Holographic Divine Pattern of Creation, man and woman enter this world as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm -- with the objective of evolving the Third-Force Offspring of the Union onto a Higher Plane within the Morphic Field of the Marriage (Morphic Field see Gender Blindness And The Process Of Birth).   And it is this merger of male/female opposites that is necessary to enter the Heavenly Kingdom -- i.e., Gospel of Thomas saying 22 (see Saying 22): 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."  And from this perspective, if you were to take a bottle of sperm (from any number of men), or a bottle of eggs/ovum (from any number of women), absolutely no union or growth can be brought about -- with neither the sperm or ovum being able to become "one flesh".   In like manner, if you were to wire a home same-sex -- i.e., in the electrical outlets you wire them positive to positive or negative to negative, you would no longer be able to power your appliances.   The whole of our power grid and the basis of our technology is all based upon the interaction of positive and negative opposites -- which holographically equate to the interaction of male and female.   As is the very atomic structure of all matter and energy.   In like manner, computer code is composed using "1"s and "0"s -- i.e., positive and negative -- and without the opposite polarities in the code, no computer program could be written.   The Divine Pattern is holographically replicated throughout all of Creation -- controlled by the interaction of male/female, positive/negative forces and realities of consciousness, mind and being. 

Thus, in understanding this reality, the question must be posed as to why, then, does the Bible condemn and reject homosexuality, if what is being presented must be understood allegorically?   This answer is very simple once understood.   The scriptures were written for seekers -- and in this case a seeker can be rightly portrayed as a person attempting to bring forth an offspring (or child).   If, then, you went to a fertility specialist for assistance in procuring an offspring -- and that fertility specialist advised you that it did not matter with whom you had sexual intercourse -- that if you were a man, you could have sex with other men -- and if you were a women, you could have sex with other women -- and it really didn't matter with whom you had sex -- then this supposed fertility specialist would be deemed incompetent.   In the Gospel of the Nazirenes this important teaching which I will greatly expand upon in the below, has been preserved: "My work is to teach and to heal the children of men, and he that is born of God keeps his seed within him."   The Generative Power is in the seed of a man -- and there is only two ways to preserve this Generative Power that is necessary to bring about the expansion and deepening of mind of the seeker, and that is either through celibacy, or within what can be portrayed as a Divine Marriage where the man and woman live the necessary mindset and lifestyle to become "one flesh".    Again, it is imperative to comprehend that from a holographic perspective, physical conception and pregnancy is a byproduct of the sexual relationship and interaction between a man and woman -- and the higher spiritual purpose and reality of the Sacrament of Sex with respect to bringing forth the Third-Force Morphic-Field, has the potential to take place with every sexual exchange and interaction between a husband and wife in a Divine Marriage.   In the biblical allegory of Onan (Gen 38:9) his casting of his seed upon the ground rather than impregnating his brother's wife, brought him death -- and this can in like manner portray the prodigal son who squandered away his inheritance on "riotous living".  While within a Divine Marriage the Generative Power in man is properly exchanged with his wife and channeled into the Morphic-Field that brings about the union of "one flesh", from a spiritual perspective of reality, all other forms of expelling this Generative Power must be understood as various forms of mutual masturbation.   And this fact of human reality is further explored in the Blog article entitled Reply: Melbourne Mum Infuriated By Church's Sex Advice In School, and also the article entitled Why Are Some People Born Homosexual? Why Is Homosexuality Rejected In The Bible?, wherein I correctly portray same-sex relationships as "mutual-masturbation".   Which, fails to engage and properly bring about the interaction of opposites -- representing either a loss of Generative Power in the case of two men, or an absence of Generative Power in the case of two women -- and is a practice that a sincere spiritual seeker does not want to engage in.   That procreation is a byproduct of the sexual union of man and woman, and in every sexual exchange in a Divine Marriage a Third-Force Balance/Offspring (of mind and spirit) is sustained, is the reality of Spiritual Fertility and Spiritual Pro-Creation that is not at all understood today.  From an allegorical Genesis perspective, in the same way that man and woman can be physically fruitful and have many physical offspring, when the holographic reality is understood, so too is the expansion of mind brought about in the same way within the pattern of the Tree of Life.

In accord with the Holographic Divine Pattern, the same would be true with respect to thoughts and impressions attempting to arise through the male/female spheres of the Tree of Duality which are represented in the outer columns of the Tree of Life.   Without the joining of the opposites (male/female) becoming "one flesh", it will remain impossible for the third-force offspring to mature and arise to the next elevated plane.   And the same is true with respect to two men or two women producing physical offspring, as it is in the case of Linear (male) thoughts and impressions failing to unite and become one with their Intuitive (female) opposite half -- thereby enabling the joined (married) thoughts and impressions to arise through the (Center) Tree of Life and returned to the Source in the Heavenly Kingdom at the top of the Tree of Life.

   Spiritual Marriage Vs The Civil Unions Of Man: On the issue of same-sex union and what can be portrayed as the nature-marriages that fail to evolve because they lack the spiritual attributes of a Divine Marriage Ordained by God, the following Blog article should address the issues: Should Christians Embrace Genuine Spiritual Marriage?

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 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 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 rightly  limited to civil-unions. 

We must then pose the question: While male and female unions are as common as man and woman, the question must be asked: Why don't these unions initiate the next stage of birth which the mystics make reference to?   The answer is very simple: Because the union must not be limited to the physical -- but rather, the dynamic interaction of mind and spirit in a state of absolute harmony that is able to raise the two up to a higher level of being.   Thus, together they must seek to Know Self -- i.e., their true self -- while seeking Truth and the Inner Kingdom.  Because of self-ignorance, the vast majority of marriages between a man and woman are limited to the physical, the emotional and the forming of a family.  

As stated in the above, a Divinely Ordained Spiritual Marriage has requirements that must be met and maintained.   And if these requirements are not maintained, then no Spiritually Ordained Marriage can exist.   The scriptures were composed by Mystics, to be used by other sincere seekers who can be portrayed as the prodigal sons and daughters who have "come to their senses", and desire to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   And this is why the Higher Law as personified in the scriptures, is designed and enacted only for the most spiritual, while the rest of mankind is held to a set of lesser laws and requirements.   This fact of different requirements which modern Christians can't at all understand, is 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).   Thus, the person of this world "...who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows", because he is the prodigal son who remains lost and under the control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country.   On the other hand, those who have begun to come to Christ, and fail to live in accord with the teachings and requirements set forth in the Gospel, will receive the greater judgment and condemnation -- i.e.,  “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. ...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”

The Law, as set forth in the Torah, was never intended to be applied to common man who was not a spiritual seeker and disciple of TheWay.   And because a person cannot have "two masters", and he cannot be true to the thinking and lifestyle of this world while still being a sincere seeker, the vast majority of the Gentiles very quickly corrupted the Gospels that were given to them -- creating dogmatic dispensations as to why it was not necessary for them to live in accord with the Gospel teachings and requirements.   But to the degree that each person was able to receive the spiritual teachings of the Gospel, imposed upon them greatly different requirements.   Thus, Paul condemned those who believed that they could come to Christ and continue to sin, as seen in the statement that: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...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).   In like manner, a large segment of the early Gentile Church very quickly defiled the original Gospel Sacraments (see Sacraments), and brought judgment upon themselves.   With the annexation of the Church by the Roman Emperor Constantine in the fourth century, the Church was cast into a spiritual abyss of abject ignorance from which it has yet to emerge.   And because of the Church's self-imposed exile in a spiritual diaspora, they are no longer able to be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life -- and therefore remain as lost prodigal sons who dwell under the power and control of the Citizen of the Far Country.

  Kabbalah And The Ten Sphere Tree Of Life - The Inherent Problem:

 

Traditional Jewish/Kabbalstic

Tree Of Life

 

In the traditional style of an ancient Mystery Religion, Judaism does not present high-level spiritual truths to those outside of their system.   Why do they conceal important truths from those outside of the group?  As documented at Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature, it is impossible for organic "natural" man that Paul portrays as being of an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness, to comprehend man's higher Soul and spiritual natures. 

On the right is the traditional 10 sphere Jewish/Kabbalistic Tree of Life -- and on the left is the same Kabbalistic Tree of Life with an added 11th sphere which they call Da'at -- but the ten and eleven sphere pattern of the Jewish Tree when rightly understood, is from the perspective of the Holographic Divine Pattern fatally flawed.   The lines connecting the spheres are the Laws as represented in the Hebrew alphabet -- but because this version of the Tree which is published to those outside of the core students of Kabbalah is lacking the twelfth sphere, it cannot present a picture and image of Wholeness.    From a Gospel perspective, this withholding of important truths can be portrayed as not giving to dogs what is holy, or casting pearls before swine.  

The Elementary Kabbalah: In the transition phase of the seeker, it is important for a teacher/guide/rabbi to reveal a certain level of esoteric knowledge to the disciple who can benefit from this knowledge.   And thus, to this level of seeker the ancient mystics revealed a 10 sphere Tree of Life which is used throughout Kabbalah today.   And those familiar with Kabbalah are aware that there is sometimes an 11th sphere added named Daath -- but the limitations of the carnal Jewish mindset can be seen in the many theories set forth as to why Daath cannot even be counted as a sphere of the Tree.  

In the Book of Revelation is the statement which confirmed the higher reality that the Tree of Life has twelve spheres: "In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:2 NKJ) -- and in researching my own past lives where I was immersed in the inner core of Jewish mysticism, I saw that the knowledge of the 11th and 12th sphere was reserved only for the most evolved initiates into the system.  And in the allegory of the children born from the wives of Jacob -- who came to be called Israel -- the last two spheres can be portrayed as the only offspring of Jacob's wife Rachel.   While the 11th sphere is Spiritual Knowledge or Gnosis -- and as the 11th can be portrayed as the Generative Power Of The Kingdom -- the 12th sphere which is portrayed as Intellect, is not intellect in the measure of IQ -- but rather, the application of knowledge in a person's actions and deeds.  

When what the 11th and 12th spheres represent is understood, the Jewish mystics are correct in not revealing this knowledge to those who cannot receive it.  The 11th and 12th spheres being represented by the sons of Rachel, are spiritual -- and therefore are beyond the comprehension of physical man who is yet of an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness.   The first 10 sons were born of Leah and the handmaidens of Leah and Rachael.  Thus, with respect to the Tree of Life, they represent incompletion.  Therefore, Jewish Mystics only revealed an understanding of the additional two spheres of the Tree of Life -- as well as the crucial flow of vital life-force and bio-energy -- to those students of Kabbalah who had advanced to the degree that they were able to comprehend the Inward application of the Tree of Life as the pattern of their own Mind. 

While it is one thing to possess a degree of knowledge, it is quite another thing to use and apply that knowledge in one's life in the proper way.   And in many respects, the movement of bio-energy or vital life-force (the inheritance of the prodigal son) can be seen as the gift upon the alter of the Final Temple which we recently discussed. And the Enlightened Mystic understands that it is impossible for this gift/energy to flow directly from Binah/Understanding/Male, or from Chokhmah/Wisdom/Female, except through one's Actions/Intellect Sphere. And even then, there must also be the Gnosis/Knowledge connection through Daath/Knowledge.   The Vital Life-Force that is the inheritance of the prodigal son that was squandered away on "riotous living" and things of no substance, is the bio-energy that must be channeled within the mind of the seeker/disciple to bring about the expansion and deepening of mind and consciousness beyond organic (carnal) levels of developed awareness.   In order to be properly utilized, the bio-energy MUST be returned to the upper Heavenly Kingdom within the seeker -- which sphere of mind Jewish Mysticism calls Kether.   Those who Paul portrays as being of a "natural" organic "animal-Soul" level of consciousness (see  Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ), can't utilize this energy, so it is lost out into Nature.   Those people who fail to advance beyond the organic "natural" mindset, cannot tap into the Knowledge or Gnosis acquired through the 11th sphere, and because of the disconnect between the male/female outer columns, neither can the bio-energy be brought into the 12th sphere -- causing it to be lost into Nature instead of being returned to the Upper Kingdom/Kether Sphere.   And it is this loss of Vital Life-Force into Nature that is portrayed as the prodigal son squandering away his inheritance on "riotous living"

In view of the fact that Binah/Understanding and Chokhmah/Wisdom is the outer columns of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil) -- which is also representative of the division of male/female -- the Jewish way of drawing the paths of the 10 sphere Tree of Life is virtually impossible, because the required oneness of duality between the Left and Right Outer Columns (Tree of Duality) has not been brought about -- as presented in the Gospel of Thomas: "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...".   Which means that the 10 sphere Tree of Life with the energy paths connecting Binah and Chokhmah with Kether is fatally flawed.   But from the perspective of the inner core of Jewish mystics, a disciple/initiate was not prepared to move on until they came to the realization that you can't return/access Kether while in the divided state of the Tree of Duality.   And that the death which was pronounced from eating the fruit of the Tree of Duality, was because of the loss of vital life-force into Nature, instead of the return of the energy within one's self to the Source.   Only when the Jewish Kabbalah initiate arrived at the point where this understanding began to come to them, were they ready to receive the higher esoteric knowledge that was never given into the hands of those outside of the core group.

It is interesting that one Internet source that portrays itself as The School Of Spiritual Integrity, on a page entitled What Is Daath?, not only embodies the theories as to why Daath can't be counted as a sphere of the Tree of Life, but repeats one of the typical Jewish errors of applying both the Tree of Life and the scriptures externally -- i.e., (quoting): "To describe the Universe in terms of "flow and form" (ascending/descending tree)".   And thus, we observe them throwing away the Key of Knowledge in their external and historical interpretations.

Let's take the above portrayal of (Jewish) Kabbalah one step further.   Because the Jews generally interpret the scriptures outwardly -- i.e., throwing away the Key of Knowledge -- interpreting the Tree of Life cosmically, they portray the top sphere (Kether) as God.   Which in their externalization would be synonymous with saying that one of the 12 tribes of Israel was God -- or from a Gospel perspective, one of the disciples of Yeshua/Jesus was God -- but Judaism has always had a problem with the concept that the Kingdom is within us.  In the image of the 12 sphere Tree of Life, what we have is four (4) Primary Trinities (as well as a number of sub-trinities) -- and to see this, you must understand the Intellect sphere as being the physical body itself, which all the other spheres must work through because the physical body encompasses all the other spheres. Which means that the upper most sphere (Kether/Heavenly Kingdom is the paired opposite of the bottom most sphere or earthly-kingdom -- and the third-force balance is the Intellect sphere.  

The outer columns (male/liner = Binah/Understanding, Gevurah/Severity, Hod/Splendor) and (female/intuitive Chokmah/Wisdom, Hedod/Mercy, Netzah/Victory) represent the Tree of Duality -- the eating of the fruit of which brings death -- with the Life-Giving fruit in the Center of the Tree of Life.   And when the Holographic Divine Pattern is understood, it is impossible for either the impressions/thoughts generated through Binah or Chokmah to be returned to the top sphere which is called Kether.  

The Tree of Life is comprised of four (4) Trinities containing four male/female paradoxical opposite spheres, and four corresponding third-force balance spheres in the Center of each of the Trinities.   Thus, the traditional ten (10) sphere Tree of Life used throughout Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism, cannot properly represent man's Consciousness and his True Pattern of Mind.   And as will be demonstrated in the below, unless the seeker/disciple understands the interaction of these male/female paradoxical opposites, and how the third-force offspring is raised up to a higher plane, then the ten sphere Tree of Life will remain a perpetual enigma that can never be fully understood.   That the Genuine Pattern of the Tree of Life has Twelve Spheres which represent the Mind of Man, is presented in the statement: "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   That only those who put on the required wedding garment of purification, and fulfill the Laws of the Tree of Life within themselves will be able to gain entrance to the Inner Kingdom, is demonstrated in the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).

In the twelve sphere Tree of Life at the right, Da'at is labeled Knowledge -- but not the Knowledge of this world -- but rather, Gnosis or Divine Manna.   But just above the Knowledge sphere is the Intellect sphere -- but not intellect as in a measurement of intelligence or IQ level -- but rather, the application of the lower spheres of the Tree of Life.   This application of the spiritual works of the person -- the ability of the person to bring unity to the outer (male/female) columns of the Tree of Duality in the Center, with the proper application that permits the impressions/thoughts/vital life-force to be returned to the Source in the top Heavenly Kingdom, rather than being lost into nature as with the "riotous" living of the prodigal son.      

In understanding the holographic patterns of both the Inner and Cosmic Tree of Life, one must first understand the Natural Laws of Conception -- and then be able to apply these Laws in the evolution, expansion and deepening of the mind.  As stated in the above, in order to initiate the process of conception, both the (male) sperm and (female) ovum must split -- each becoming half of the 46 chromosomes associated with man, 23 chromosomes each after splitting.   The genetics of the male is "XY" -- and after splitting, if the "X" chromosome fertilizes the split ovum, the offspring is female -- while if the ovum is fertilized by the "Y", the child is male.  

In the pattern of the Tree of Life at the right, we can observe these same Natural Laws of Creation in the generation of a thought where it splits upon entering the Foundation Sphere into both the male and female outer columns.   Based upon the level of advancement of the Soul of the person -- the advancement being the product of what can be called the Spiritual DNA which the person entered into the present life as stated by the Church Father Origen who wrote:  “Every Soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis) -- the more advanced the Soul, the more they will be able to connect the outer male/female columns in the Center Spheres of the Tree of Life.  
When one comes to understand the holographic pattern presented in the above of the Twelve Within The Twelve -- and that the bottom Earth-Kingdom Sphere exists within each of the upper eleven spheres -- only then are we able to plot what the Apostle Paul portrayed as the "natural" organic consciousness of man that is incapable of comprehending anything beyond the thinking and very limited realities of this physical world (see The Mystery Of The Gospel).   In the case of organic man, the thoughts arise only through the Earth-Segment of each upper Sphere -- limiting the person's consciousness and knowledge to the Earth.   And because the thoughts generated remain split and divided across the outer columns of the Tree of Duality -- never merging and coming together in the Center Tree of Life -- the person remains earth-bound in their thinking and perceptive-reasoning and understanding.   And because the divided thoughts cannot come together in the Center, the vital life-force which is the inheritance of the prodigal son, is lost into nature on what is portrayed as "riotous" living -- which loss of bio-energy that fails to be properly utilized in the process of the expansion and deepening of the mind, the prodigal son is portrayed as falling under the control of the Citizen of the Far Country -- aka the Outer Darkness and/or Plato's Cave.   Resulting in the reality that because the vital life-force is lost into nature -- or squandered away on the things of this world that have no real essential meaning -- the person remains carnal and unable to comprehend his own higher Soul and spiritual reality.

From the perspective of the embryo that forms in a woman's womb, whatever sperm fails to unite to an ovum, becomes lost and discarded.   In like manner, whatever ovum fails to become fertilized by a sperm, becomes lost and discarded.   The same is true with respect to the thoughts that man generates within himself that remains divided in the outer columns of the Tree of Duality, and fails to become united in the Center column of the Tree of Life.   Thus, in the words of the Gospel account of Jesus: "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment" (Matt 12:36 KJV) -- or, whatever thoughts, impressions and/or words are polarized to the male or female spheres of the Tree of Duality, without being reunited to their opposite, are idle and dead.   And in the same way that the Tree of Life is comprised of Four Trinities, each level arising up the Tree of Life is a portrayal of the Four Stages of Birth.   And these subsequent stages of birth are portrayed in the words of Jesus where he said: "There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.  This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.  Jesus answered and said to him, Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God..." (John 3:1-12 NKJ).   And when Nicodemus again questioned Jesus he replied: "...If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" 

It is necessary again to understand the words of Jesus' 22nd saying of the Gospel of Thomas 22 (see Saying 22): 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."   At each level of birth, the development arising through the pattern of the Tree of Life must be likened to that of a child of that level of mind and being.   Each level of birth must be brought about by the merger and reuniting of the divided male and female -- i.e., , and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female".  And without this merger of divided male and female opposites and the formation of the Third-Force in the Center, absolutely no higher mental and spiritual progress can be accomplished.

  In Defense Of The Twelve Sphere Tree Of Life: Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism uses the above 10 sphere Tree of Life -- and when they encounter the pattern of the 12 sphere Tree of Life, they immediately reject what they don't understand.  First off it must be recognized that Kabbalah is rejected as a type of witchcraft among mainstream Jews where it is often classified as false and foreign teachings brought into Judaism during the what they assume to be the Babylonian captivity.  Which means that in order to even make Kabbalah remotely acceptable as part of Judaism, it must be expressed externally -- even though the core Jewish Mystics have always known otherwise.  Why?  Because Jews -- like Christians and Muslims and much of the New Age -- look for the Kingdom to come externally.  And if the true reality of the Tree of Life was to be revealed, it would have to be admitted that its only real application is within one's own mind and being in search of an Inner Kingdom that does not, and never can, come upon the earth outwardly in the manner that most religions look for it to come.  So, what we have in Kabbalah is basically a Cosmic Tree of Life with the top sphere being what they call Keter or The Crown -- and in associated with God in relation to the spheres below it.

When the 4th century Roman Emperor Constantine inaugurated his (secular) version of the Trinity -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit -- he totally undermined the wisdom of the ancient teachings on the Trinity, and then infused this grave error into Christianity.  "The Council of Nicea was a pivotal event in the history of Christianity.  The sudden adoption of a quasi-philosophic term to define the historic Jesus as equal to God was a major departure from scripture and tradition.  Further, the use of this term 'trinity' in a Creed meant that, from 325 on, Nicenes could and did proclaim other dogmas that have no basis in Scripture" (State Church of the Roman Empire; Ben H. Swett; 1998).  The Encyclopedia Britannica (1998 edition) writes of the word Logos: “In Greek philosophy and theology, the divine reason implicit in the cosmos, ordering it and giving it form and meaning.  Though the concept defined by the term logos is found in Greek, Indian, Egyptian, and Persian philosophical and theological systems... The idea of the logos in Greek thought harks back at least to the 6th-century-BC philosopher Heracleitus, who discerned in the cosmic process a logos analogous to the reasoning power in man. Later, the Stoics, philosophers who followed the teachings of the thinker Zeno of Citium (4th-3rd century BC), defined the logos as an active rational and spiritual principle that permeated all reality... Philo of Alexandria, a 1st-century-AD Jewish philosopher, taught that the logos was the intermediary between God and the cosmos, being both the agent of creation and the agent through which the human mind can apprehend and comprehend God. According to Philo and the Middle Platonists, philosophers who interpreted in religious terms the teachings of the 4th-century-BC Greek master philosopher Plato, the logos was both immanent in the world and at the same time the transcendent divine mind... The identification of Jesus with the logos, which is implied in various places in the New Testament but stated specifically in the Fourth Gospel, was further developed in the early church but more on the basis of Greek philosophical ideas... the early Christian Fathers stated that Christ as the preexistent logos (1) reveals the Father to mankind and is the subject of the Old Testament manifestations of God; (2) is the divine reason in which the whole human race shares, so that the 6th-century-BC philosopher and others who lived with reason were Christians before Christ; and (3) is the divine will and word by which the worlds were framed”.

When rightly understood, the Logos portrays the Mind of God -- and it is drawn from the knowledge of the Diving Pattern of Creation which is holographically replicated into every aspect of Creation.  Enlightened visionaries often portray the Logos as the third-force balance between the two male/female paradoxical opposites of Creation. And as I have often stated, Duality is really Trinitarian -- and the higher reality can only manifest in the Center-Balance of the opposing opposites. Therefore, perhaps the easiest way to understand the relationship of the three aspects of mind, is to use the example of marriage between a man and woman. The validity, essence and substance of the marriage can only be perceived and understood in the ætheric which in http://SoulSelf.org , I portray as the Morphic Field that is created and evolved that immerses the man and woman within what can be portrayed as their own atmosphere -- wherein, because they are immersed in this singular ætheric atmosphere, they become "One Flesh". And what is true in the holographic pattern of man and woman, is also true within your own mind where the male and female columns of the Tree of Duality must be brought together in the Center -- as patterned in the Tree of Life. The same dynamic pattern that exists at all levels of Creation, also exists within your own mind and being -- as presented in Gospel of Thomas saying 22 which states: "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". With the missing aspect of this ultra-important teaching being preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes where it states: And one of the disciples asked him, "How shall a man enter into the Kingdom?" And he answered and said, "If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God". With the key words being "...entering into the center and passing into the spirit".

In order to enter in at the Center, there must exist evolved balance in the four (4) Trinitarian paradoxical opposites that comprise the 12 sphere pattern of the Tree of Life -- i.e., the pattern of your own mind. In the above the reference to male and female, or left and right, portrays the male/female outer columns of the Tree of Duality. The reference to the above that must be united with the below, is portraying the Heavenly and Earthly Kingdoms -- i.e., thus, the upper three spiritual centers (chakras) in the head with their opposite or other half in the lower three spiritual centers in the lower body. Which means that while such things as meditation -- or the focus on the sixth spiritual center or third-eye will provide higher vision and insight -- it will remain just that so long as the lower opposite is suppressed or not evolved -- thereby inhibiting the ability to access and enter through the Center. And while all these realities of self are explored in the article on the Tree of Life ( http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ), much understanding is required to comprehend the difference and application of Kabbalah in relation to the understanding of the twelve sphere Tree of Life being the pattern of one's own mind.

The Jews do what Jews do -- and that is to read the letter of the written word that Paul correctly portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14). Therefore, you simply can't convey to a Jew that what is being portrayed in the twelve tribes of Israel, is in fact an allegorical portrayal of the person's own mind. Neither can you convey to a Christian that the Gospel portrays the perfected mind because instead of tribes which is comprised of a divided multitude, the Gospels portray the mind as twelve singular spheres -- and the final stage of birth cannot be brought about until the death (transformation) of Judah which is the Jew. Therefore, in the same way that the highly evolved spiritual authors of the scriptures portrayed dogs and swine as a negative personification of man's undeveloped consciousness, so too is the allegorical portrayal of the Jews also a negative personification that must be transformed and done away with. And this is one of the reasons why the Spiritual Christians condemned and rejected the god of the Jews. Therefore, the scriptures aren't about the Jews as most people think -- because in reality the scriptures are about putting to death the Jew that exists within each of us -- just as in the symbolism of the dog and swine that each person must prevail over.

In the same way that there simply is no way to explain to a Jew the true meaning of their own scriptures, neither is there any means to convey to them the reality of the pattern of the Tree of Life as the means and catalyst to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom -- which the vast majority of Jews totally reject. The Jews believe that they are the Chosen People -- and that when the Messiah inaugurates the Kingdom upon the earth, that he will rule the world from Jerusalem. A very large segment of religious Jews who believe they are the Chosen People, view the people of the Nations as being of an animal-Soul that was created in order to serve the Jews -- and this is documented in the subheading Organic Man Ruled Over His Lower Animal Nature. And that as Jews, they have been created on a higher plane than the rest of mankind. So, to even suggest to them that the 12 tribes of Israel is an allegorical portrayal of their own mind -- and that the symbol of the Jew is representative of someone who has received the Law but observes it externally -- and is therefore limited to 1/12 (one twelfth) of their potential of mind and consciousness -- is simply something that the Jews (and most Christians) simply would refuse to even consider.

Judaism is an ancient Mystery Religion -- and while there has always existed an inner core of initiates who possessed the above knowledge, this wisdom could in no manner be revealed to those outside the core initiates. What has come to be known as the Gospels was actually a revolution from the Mystery Religion environment -- and can be considered a Spiritual Reformation. While the Gospels are very much allegorical, what they did was place the essential wisdom and knowledge that was designed to free the people from the Mystery Religion environment, and enable the individual seeker to bring about their own transformation and birth -- thereby enabling the lost prodigal son to become At-One with the Essence of the Logos within them -- which can be personified as the Kingdom coming within them. Quoting from The Great Lie at http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature

The Ebionites were unjustly condemned as heretics because it was said that they were Torah Observant. Yet, they rejected all animal sacrifice, were strict vegetarians, and they rejected the literal interpretation of the Law of Moses.  Quoting the Church Father 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 Jesus states: "I have come to destroy the sacrifices" (ibid. 30.16.5). They were Observant of the Law -- but this was the Royal Law that is Spiritual.  In reference to the Ebionites, Epiphanius further states: "They are Jews. They use Gospels. Eating meat is abominable to them. They consider water to have sacred properties... they often baptize themselves in water, summer and winter, for sanctification..." (Panarion, 19:28-30).  So to say that the Ebionites are Torah Observant in the manner of the Pharisees, in view of the recorded fact that they "...blaspheme most of the legislation ...They use Gospels. Eating meat is abominable to them" -- is a lie that was promoted by the Gentile Church that was too heathen in their mindset to comprehend the spiritual nature of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and the Gentile Church condemned the Ebionites in order to adopt pagan teachings, rituals and religious observances which were common to Pagan Rome.

The whole charade of building a temple in Jerusalem was an allegorical portrayal of transforming one's own body into a Living Temple. And the requirement of animal sacrifice was an allegorical portrayal of transforming the seeker's own lower animal nature.  As stated 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 openly acknowledge in the AskMoses.com teaching on the Final Temple where it states: "...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".

The problem is that you cannot convey the above reality to the Jews -- or, for that matter, the Christians. And if the inner core of Kabbalists were to reveal the true meaning of the Tree of Life as portrayed in the allegory of the twelve tribes of Israel -- especially with the Jews being portrayed as a level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending higher reality, and must be overcome (put to death) -- from a Jewish Kabbalist perspective, you would be condemned as a Jew-hating heretic. And in view of the fact that Christians embrace what is known as Replacement Theology -- where because the Jews crucified Jesus, they are the new chosen people -- there is simply no way to convey the truth to them either.

  

 

 

 

 

The Cosmic Holographic Tree Of Life

Part II

 

While modern man often uses the rhetoric of the fact that present-day science has proven that we dwell in a holographic reality (see What Exactly Is A Hologram?) -- and modern man often uses the rhetoric of a Divine Pattern that is replicated into all of Creation -- few people understand how these two terms apply to them -- i.e., their own mind and being -- or the enigma of dwelling in a world that is a Holographic Divine Pattern where each fragment is a replication of the Whole.   On the left what is being portrayed is the typical Kabbalist and/or New Age concept of what can be recognized as the Cosmic Tree of Life.   They worship a God that is external to themselves -- and while this is not at all the God of the authors of the scriptures who understood the forces of their own mind and being and the inner Kingdom, from a spiritually undeveloped perspective, they are not wrong. 

To lay the foundation of a holographic reality, I will briefly quote from the article at http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org :

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.    Quoting physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about 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.”  

In the February 1979 Psychology Today interview with brain scientist Karl Pribram, the world which he attempted to describe confirmed the vision witnessed by the ancient mystics and enlightened wise men -- and when their vision of man's reality is properly understood, confirmed the reality of the Bible that neither true believer nor staunch critic is even prepared to acknowledge and understand -- i.e., Pribram wrote: “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”.   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.”    While this is true, it does not address the problem as seen in the fact that our physical senses which are composed of earth-matter, can only perceive the frequencies that are of the earth.   And what both the Mystic and the modern physicist portray as the (Ætheric) Field, is not only not of the earth in origin -- but like the tip of the iceberg, is far more vast than what the (physical) eyes of man can see and perceive.   Holographically, the physical brain interprets the redacted image of what is perceived, in an allegorical form -- which is why the Gospel account of Jesus portrays what organic man sees as being cast into the "outer darkness" (of mind and being) -- while Plato portrays what man sees as illusion and shadow-images which have been projected onto the wall of the Cave.   From the perspective of Plato's analogy of the Cave, it can rightly be 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. ...but what is seen with one's physical senses is only a fragment of a higher reality that man's earth-senses do not normally detect".    Which provokes the question: Can you develop the ability to perceive and understand the larger reality that man in his organic condition is blind to?   Most definitely yes!  In fact, developing this ability of being able to perceive in Wholeness, is not only your Destiny, but as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son, is your inherent birth-right.  But this ability to perceive the Whole Reality of what is presented to your senses, requires some work -- much of which is the opening and maturing of the mind with which you look out at the world.  

When rightly understood, the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions presents to us the dilemma of dwelling in a holographic reality -- which means that mankind is portrayed as the prisoners who are shackled in the cave who are only able to see and perceive the shadows that are being danced upon the wall of the cave.    But more importantly, what this means is that the findings of the modern physicist totally supports the analogy of Plato's Cave as seen in the words of Einstein:  "...There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality”   In the analogy of Plato's Cave, the prisoners are only able to see the shadow-images that are danced upon the wall of the cave -- in much the same way that the physicist portrays the objects we see in the world as a "blemish" that has been created by the intersecting forces of the Field which man can't see with his organic physical senses.     And in the same way that Einstein portrays the source of what we observe in the unseen Field as the only true reality, the analogy of Plato portrays the shadow images being danced upon the walls of the cave as illusion.  Modern physicists have proven that the particles of matter that we see with our physical eyes, are connected in another non-physical dimension that is beyond man's organic vision to detect -- i.e., what in the above is portrayed as the Field.    In the words of Einstein: “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” (quoted in M. Capek, The Philosophical Impact of Contemporary Physics).   Yet, academia for the most part not only continues to ignore the fact that modern physicists have proven the ancient visionaries and mystics are correct, but our educational systems continue to promote the Theory of Evolution which promotes the bogus portrayal that there is no such thing as the unseen -- and that the seen physical world came into being apart from any unseen non-physical forces or realities -- is easily proven to be a fraud based upon modern physics.  

In a holographic reality, it is important to understand that whatever is perceived to be in the outer world which is reflective, is a projection of the Source in the Inner World of one's own mind.   And this is why on the Delphic Oracle it is written: "Heed these words, you who wish to probe the depths of Nature: If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside.  If you ignore the wonders of your own House, how do you expect to find other wonders?  In you is hidden the Treasure of Treasures.  Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods."  And why the Gospel of Thomas confirms the truth in the above and 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... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".   Why would the one who comes to Know Thyself be superior to this world?   Because what you see in the outer world is a shadow-image of the Source within your own mind and being.    This is further confirmed in Gospel of Thomas saying 22 (see Saying 22) with respect to making the outside like the inside: 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."

While the pattern of the Tree of Life is in fact the pattern of your own mind -- with the Pattern of the Whole replicated into each of its fragmentary parts -- because of this same holographic reality where within each of the (12) spheres of the mind exists the replication of the whole -- which equates to the pattern of the twelve within the twelve -- this holographic replication of the Divine Pattern is also true in the Cosmic Tree of Life that each person is a part of by being born into this world.   Therefore, the question must be posed as to how many points of fragmented consciousness comprise the whole -- and from the perspective of human consciousness, this inner fragmentation can be reduced to the number 144,000 points that make up the Mind of man as patterned within the diagram of the Tree of Life.  And it is this fragmentation of mind that is responsible for the condition of fragmented (false) personalities which was written about extensively by Gurdjieff and others who have written on esoteric psychology.  Carl Jung noted that the early Gnostics were the world's first psychologists -- and quoting from one of the foremost Theosophists, G.R.S. Mead, in his celebrated work, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, where he explained that, once properly understood, the true meaning of the allegorical symbolism used is “…projected onto the screen…” of the scriptures, “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds”.    Carl Jung and G.R.S Mead not only had many meetings together, but coordinated their efforts.   And when I use the tern 144,000 which is of course used in the Book of Revelations as being significant to the Gnostics -- and can be understood as an important element in the psychology of consciousness and “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds”, Gudjieff's portrayal of man as having a fragmented mind must be understood and common esoteric knowledge among those who seek to Know Thyself.   Which means that neither Gurdjieff's or my own portrayal of this number being associated with the fragmented mind of man, is nothing new and common (esoteric) knowledge among those of whom it can be said that they have fulfilled the adage to Know Thyself.     

 

What this means is that those people who Gnostics have traditionally portrayed as "natural" or nature-man, not only dwells in a very fragmented and divided condition of mind and being, but there are other ramifications and consequences that greatly affect our understanding of the mind of man as portrayed in the twelve-sphere pattern of the Tree of Life.   The bottom sphere of the Tree of Life is portrayed as the kingdom of the earth -- and it is the seat of earth or carnal consciousness.   And this is why Paul stated: "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).   Further stating 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 the early Christian Bishop and Gnostic Valentinus stated that there is no salvation for those who can be categorized as nature-man.   Why?   Because as an embryonic-image generated by our higher Soul-Self at conception (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image), when we fail to develop, we remain earth-bound in our thinking and lack of development.   Why?   Our thoughts and consciousness arise and develop in the mind upon the vital life-force that originates in the seven spiritual centers which in the East are referred to as chakras -- and because the whole of our thinking is grounded in the lower sphere of the Tree of Life, as the thoughts rise and move through the upper spheres, these thoughts and thinking remain within the earth-sphere of the twelve within the twelve of each of the upper spheres of mind.   Which equates to the reality that organic man only uses approximately 10% of his potential of mind -- remaining carnal and earth-bound in his thinking and understanding.   Because of the holographic pattern of the twelve within the twelve, only those aspects of each of the upper spheres which relate to the earthly-kingdom, are active in the consciousness of nature-man.   Which equates to the reality that in the example of the upper Wisdom or Understanding spheres of mind as expressed through the pattern of the Tree of Life, only those fragments within the spheres that could be labeled Earth-Wisdom or Earth-Understanding, is active -- while the greater 90% of each sphere remains dormant and undeveloped.   Incapable of understanding anything beyond what would be portrayed as being of an earth-vibration.   And this is why the Gospel account of Jesus explained when questioned with respect to how he taught the multitudes who were portrayed as being "outside" the House (see In The House)  “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).   Which confirms the fact that the portrayal of Jesus was not one who did or even could reveal the "secrets of the Kingdom" to the multitudes of man -- but only parables as presented in the words: "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).    Which also means that what the literal text of the Gospels is, is parables within a greater allegorical parable -- as noted by the Wycliffe Bible Commentary which 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...”.   And that is the Key with respect to developing the mind beyond the 10% organic level of consciousness -- i.e., "...the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”  

Valentinus correctly stated that Faith-Based Christians who did not possess a working knowledge of the (Natural) Laws would always become bound and impeded by their ignorance of the Laws -- regardless of their faith.   It is one thing to with one's lips call upon the name of Jesus -- and quite another thing to picking up one's own cross and patterning one's life by travailing in TheWay in exact imitation.   And one of the reasons why Valentinus and other early Christians stated this reality of man, was because the Laws of Creation MUST maintain Wholeness across the spectrum of the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life.   But what does this mean?   In fact, when rightly understood, the vast differences between people -- great differences in philosophy, religion, political positions and ideology, opinions of every conceivable variety, all exist for the benefit of the seeker who is struggling to find the answers to life, and being to understand their own self.   How can this be, you ask?   Because at conception the embryo that formed your body by its inherent limitations, could only be imbued with 1/144,000th of the Whole, each person is born from this very fragmented point within the Whole.   And I maintain that it will remain impossible to understand this human reality of consciousness without reading the subheading The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind.  

One of the primary differences between a man such as the historical man Jesus and the average person, is the fact that Jesus was Whole -- i.e., fully developed and mature.   In contradistinction, the vast majority of people exist in a fragmented and immature condition of mind -- an embryonic projection of their True-Self that is unable to fully manifest in the body-vessel.   And, in the same way that the Twelve Spheres of the Tree of Life is fragmented across the spectrum of144,000 points of lesser points of consciousness, on a cosmic level each person can be portrayed as a single neuron within the Holographic Pattern of the Cosmic Tree of Life.  And this is why each person and each group of people, perceives and understands the world and even all of life from a different and often conflicting perspective.  And this is why some people can be portrayed as a conservative or liberal, a Marxist or Atheist, a person who is the follower of Eastern teachings, or the opposite who would totally reject the East -- as well as all the other diverse opinions, religions and philosophies of mankind.   Which is also why Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement states that each person sees a different message in the scriptures -- as well as all of life.  In a recent Huffington Post article, the author portrays Jesus as a Marxist.   And quoting the opening of the article An Inconvenient Truth: Who was Jesus?  Man, Myth or God?   Theologian Albert Schweitzer suggested that there will never be one answer to that question.   He said that looking for Jesus in history is like looking down a well: You see only your own reflection.  The “real” Jesus, Schweitzer says, will remain “a stranger and an enigma”.   And this is true, because each person's consciousness and understanding is in direct relation to the point within the spectrum of the Tree of Life that his mind and being was imbued at conception.       

From a Holographic perspective, when one comes to understand the Laws that maintain Wholeness and bring about what is best portrayed as  The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind, there is a higher purpose and reason for this enigma that is presented in the subheading The Solution To The Enigma.   And this reality of the Natural Laws of Creation goes to the heart of the Sermon on the Mount and the Commandment against judging your brothers and sisters (see The Esoteric Sermon On The Mount).   Because each person and group of people are imbued by the Laws to perceive and understand from a different and often conflicting perspective, they perceive the world from an often different and sometimes opposite intellectual perspective.  So if we pose the question: Who is right?   The answer is that because of their polarization under the Laws to a certain perspective of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life, from their own fragmented perspective, they all possess a somewhat valid position.   But more importantly is the fact that as you begin to understand why these often major differences exist across the spectrum of mankind, and learn to use discernment and Empathetic Triangulation instead of Judgment, the other person or group will assist the process of bringing about your own expansion of mind by making the dormant points in the 90% of consciousness within your own mind that was and is not supported by organic consciousness, begin to become active.   Through discernment instead of judgment -- and by projecting yourself into the life of others by using empathetic triangulation, the reflected image which the other person presents to you, will assist in the process of the expansion, deepening and transformation of self.    In contradistinction, when you apply judgment of others, it will not only remain impossible for you to embrace their reflected image in your own development, but the Natural Laws will force you into living what you and condemn in the life of those you judge.   Thus, becoming what you condemn. 

Returning back to the pattern of mind as portrayed in the diagram of the Tree of Life,  the Tree of Life is normally drawn over an image of man, such as in this picture on the right.   And this is because your whole body which interacts with the mind in the levels of the Ætheric Field that surrounds the body, is an allegorical image of the Mind.   The outer spheres are representative of the Tree of Duality -- the eating of the fruit of which brings death -- that is death through the non-development portrayed by Valentinus above.   The Right column is the feminine half -- i.e., Intuition, Mercy and Wisdom.   The Left column is the male half -- i.e., Linear-Logic, Judgment and Understanding.   The separation and division of the male/female columns bring about the division of the upper Heavenly Kingdom sphere, with its other half at the bottom which is labeled the Earthly Kingdom sphere.   What is portrayed in Genesis as the Tree of Life that provides Eternal Life to the eater thereof, is the Center Column which is labeled Foundation, Love, Knowledge, Intellect -- and it is these four spheres of mind that is the Third-Force balance of the four Trinities in the Tree of Life.   It must be noted that the Intellect Sphere is not intellect as we would think of it -- but rather, how the individual uses the knowledge of the Divine in their daily life -- and it has more to do with the fruit a person brings forth in their daily life.   

With respect to the columns and divisions of the spheres of mind as portrayed in the graphic image of the Tree of Life, the Gospel of Thomas saying #22 is of great importance where it states that: 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."   In view of the fact that the Tree of Life is comprised of four trinities -- each having a male/female paradoxical opposite -- with each trinity having a common offspring in the third-force balance of the Center Column.   Our higher Soul-Self that is a Being of Light -- which is our True Self that we are an image of in Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) -- and exists separate from us in what I portray as the Realm of Souls -- is of course asexual, and is the balance of male/female, physical/spiritual, heaven/earth and all other dualities (see http://SoulSelf.org ).   To bring about the Oneness of the above (heavenly kingdom) and the below (earthly kingdom) -- you must bring about the Oneness of the Left Column (female) with the Right Column (male) in the Center Column of the Tree of Life.   And when you consider that the Intellect Sphere can be portrayed as the body which surrounds the other eleven -- and is therefore the third-force balance of the upper and lower -- the only means to enter the Kingdom is through the Center -- or that Sphere labeled Love.   And this is demonstrated in the version of Gospel of Thomas saying 22 which is preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes which states: And one of the disciples asked him, "How shall a man enter into the Kingdom?" And he answered and said, "If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."   The great difference between Eastern Teachings with their attempt to "get above the mind" in meditation and chakra-gazing, and that of the Teachings of TheWay and the development of the Mind (Tree of Life) is the basis of the presentation of The Way Of The Monk ( http://TheThreeLies.com#monk ).      

The question now becomes how do you bring together the male and female columns and make them "one flesh" in the Center -- i.e., "...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 you begin to understand that when you emerged from the womb of your physical mother, you actually entered the Womb of Mother-Earth were the next stages of development and birth must be brought about -- can you begin to grasp that when you entered this world you entered as what I portray a Cosmic Ovum And Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm).   And it is this reality that is the cause of the many sexual prohibitions that are presented in the Bible -- including the teachings of Jesus that even looking as a woman who is not your wife with lust, is adultery.  And while Jesus did not stone the woman caught in adultery, he did say to her to go and sin no more.   And the reason for this, as well as the dynamic and ætheric interactions of man and woman with respect to fulfilling the above requirements to enter the Kingdom is explored in great depth beginning at The Esoteric Feminine Mystique -- which as a beginning point, contains far too much information to replicate in this article.   But one of the more important points from the perspective of understanding the Tree of Life is the account of the interaction of Peter and Mary Magdalene -- quoting from the subheading Intuitive Mind vs Linear-Rational

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.  Secrets of Mary Magdalene, Prof. Elain Pagels 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", neither can the male column of the Tree of Life grasp the vision and perception of the female columns of the Tree of Life -- and it is this gulf of separation that creates the Tree of Duality -- the fruit of which inhibits the development of the mind, and brings about the death of the eater thereof. 

To again quote from the above link: The proper development of the mind to eclipse what can be called organic human limitations, is dependent upon the interaction of the linear and intuitive spheres of mind.   But when the intuitive perception is inhibited, and development is suppressed, even the linear is flat-lined from any development beyond what is portrayed in the Gospels as carnal and restricted consciousness.    The linear mind of man remains limited in its development, because the intuitive remains infantile and shackled in a captive environment where it is only permitted to express itself in linear terms.  While the inward looking intuitive has the potential to access higher consciousness and states of mind and being, it is unable to arise to its intended potential because of the shackles placed upon it by a thoroughly domineering and controlling linear culture.    Like a woman who in many Islamic cultures are forced to dwell in an imprisoned world beneath a Burka -- not permitted to openly express herself except when accompanied by a male relative -- totally deprived of the ability to openly speak on her own behalf -- the natural expression of the intuitive mind has been so impeded by our linear-driven culture, that it has remained undeveloped and unreliable as a resource (see Opening And Unlocking the Mind).   Because the male-linear as portrayed as the portrayal of Peter takes the position that "...These are certainly strange ideas", when the perceptions of the feminine-intuitive is encountered, the merger of impressions can never be brought about -- thus, flat-lining the union at a very low-self carnal perception of man's true reality.  

The interaction of the male/female outer PARADOXICAL columns of the Tree of Life that is crucial to the development of Mind as presented in the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life -- while much of which is presented in the above link at  The Esoteric Feminine Mystique -- can be tomorrows topic of discussion if you would like.  The interaction and development of these columns is a subject all unto itself.   And I have already been writing for a long period of time this morning. 

 

 

 

 

 

The Truth

Because of its important relevance to gaining an understanding of the Tree of Life, I am copying this panel and the below from the article on the Outer Darkness at http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org .

Jesus taught that those who fail to put on the Wedding Garment and come to TheCall, are thrown into what the Gospel portrays as the "outer darkness" -- which, when rightly understood, parallels that of the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions -- and because our modern culture possesses absolutely no understanding of the implications, it can be stated that modern man dwells in abject ignorance and intellectual poverty.   Why?   Because we fail to understand the great wisdom in 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..."  And in our failure to understand the nature and reality of what we see, we remain drowning in a sea of confusion.   In total confirmation of the foregoing, Paul stated to the congregation at Corinth:  "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).   What does it mean to look at the "...things which are not seen"?   While ignoring the things which are seen.  In agreement, Einstein stated "Only those who can see the invisible can do the impossible."   Today we portray our institutions of learning under the term Academia -- which is defined in the Wikipedia: Academia is the internationally recognized establishment of professional scholars and students, usually centered around colleges and universities, who are engaged in higher education and research.   But what is the origin of the word?  

The word comes from the akademeia in ancient Greece, which derives from the Athenian hero, Akademos. Outside the city walls of Athens, the gymnasium was made famous by Plato as a center of learning. The sacred space, dedicated to the goddess of wisdom, Athena, had formerly been an olive grove, hence the expression "the groves of Academe."  In these gardens, the philosopher Plato conversed with followers. Plato developed his sessions into a method of teaching philosophy and in 387 BC, established what is known today as the Old Academy.  By extension Academia has come to mean the cultural accumulation of knowledge, its development and transmission across generations and its practitioners and transmitters. In the 17th century, British and French scholars used the term to describe types of institutions of higher learning.

Yet, in total rejection of the foregoing statements with respect to developing the ability to perceive the unseen, modern academia insists on looking only on what is seen with the physical eyes and senses -- totally ignoring the statements by Plato in the analogy of the Cave that what  is seen is a shadow-image that keeps man mesmerized by the illusions being danced upon the walls of the Cave.   Modern academia not only looks solely on what is seen, but totally rejects what is portrayed as unseen.   Darwin's Theory of Evolution which is taught in virtually every subject in our modern schools, is based upon the position that only what is seen is real -- and what is seen came into being totally independent of (supernatural) non-physical realities.   Yet, not only Paul, but the very source of the term and concept of academia, states that what is seen is an illusion -- i.e., an incomplete and illusive shadow-image that is being danced upon what it portrayed as the Cave of Illusions of this world.   Which Cave is parallel to that portrayed in the Gospels as the "outer darkness" of mind and being.  

From the time our children have developed to the degree where they can begin to learn, they are trained by academia that only what is seen is real -- and our educators continue to promote the Theory of Evolution, even though they have proven it to be a fraud.  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.    Quoting physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about 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.”  

In the February 1979 Psychology Today interview with brain scientist Karl Pribram, the world which he attempted to describe confirmed the vision witnessed by the ancient mystics and enlightened wise men -- and when their vision of man's reality is properly understood, confirmed the reality of the Bible that neither true believer nor staunch critic is even prepared to acknowledge and understand -- i.e., Pribram wrote: “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”   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.”    While this is true, it does not address the problem as seen in the fact that our physical senses which are composed of earth-matter, can only perceive the frequencies that are of the earth.   And what both the Mystic and the modern physicist portray as the (Ætheric) Field, is not only not of the earth in origin -- but like the tip of the iceberg, is far more vast than what the (physical) eyes of man can see and perceive.   Holographically, the physical brain interprets the redacted image of what is perceived, in an allegorical form -- which is why the Gospel account of Jesus portrays what organic man sees as being cast into the "outer darkness" (of mind and being) -- while Plato portrays what man sees as illusion and shadow-images which have been projected onto the wall of the Cave.   From the perspective of Plato's analogy of the Cave, it can rightly be 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. ...but what is seen with one's physical senses is only a fragment of a higher reality that man's earth-senses do not normally detect".    Which provokes the question: Can you develop the ability to perceive and understand the larger reality that man in his organic condition is blind to?   Most definitely yes!  In fact, developing this ability of being able to perceive in Wholeness, is not only your Destiny, but as portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son, is your inherent birth-right.  But this ability to perceive the Whole Reality of what is presented to your senses, requires some work -- much of which is the opening and maturing of the mind with which you look out at the world.  

When rightly understood, the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions presents to us the dilemma of dwelling in a holographic reality -- which means that mankind is portrayed as the prisoners who are shackled in the cave who are only able to see and perceive the shadows that are being danced upon the wall of the cave.    But more importantly, what this means is that the findings of the modern physicist totally supports the analogy of Plato's Cave as seen in the words of Einstein:  "...There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality”   In the analogy of Plato's Cave, the prisoners are only able to see the shadow-images that are danced upon the wall of the cave -- in much the same way that the physicist portrays the objects we see in the world as a "blemish" that has been created by the intersecting forces of the Field which man can't see with his organic physical senses.     And in the same way that Einstein portrays the source of what we observe in the unseen Field as the only true reality, the analogy of Plato portrays the shadow images being danced upon the walls of the cave as illusion.  Modern physicists have proven that the particles of matter that we see with our physical eyes, are connected in another non-physical dimension that is beyond man's organic vision to detect -- i.e., what in the above is portrayed as the Field.    In the words of Einstein: “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense… There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality” (quoted in M. Capek, The Philosophical Impact of Contemporary Physics).   Yet, academia for the most part not only continues to ignore the fact that modern physicists have proven the ancient visionaries and mystics are correct, but our educational systems continue to promote the Theory of Evolution which is easily proven to be based upon a fraud.  

  The Christian Dilemma: While Christians send their children to educational systems which totally focus on what modern physicists portray as the "blemish" in the intersecting lines of force within the Field -- totally ignoring what the physicist portrays as the unseen Source in the underlying Field -- to the degree that the child becomes disenfranchised from his own higher Soul-Reality, and unable to perceive and understand the Source in the Field of what is seen with their physical eyes and senses -- and this they continue to do, regardless of the fact that one of the primary foundational objectives of their original religious teachings was to enable mankind to perceive and learn from the Source which the organic vision of man is blind and deaf to the reality of.   While the Gospels portray this world as the "outer darkness" of mind and being, the parallel analogy of Plato's Cave which the findings and recent discoveries of modern physicists now support and have proven to be correct, portray this world as a shadow-world of illusions that are being projected by an unseen higher reality that Paul commands to seek out and look only to the Source as to being real -- i.e., "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).   Yet, the Christian world not only rejects what is real while promoting the temporal illusions of this world, but they perpetuate the temporal in shadow-churches which perpetuate the worship of a shadow-savior, rejecting the Truth and TheWay when it is presented to them.   

We teach our children to look to and learn only from books composed by those who see only the illusion of what the physicist portrays as the "blemish" or shadow-image -- while remaining blind to the unseen Source.   We teach our children to learn only from authorities who are themselves mesmerized by the shadow-images being danced upon the walls of the Cave of Illusions -- totally alienating our children from the Source of these shadow-images -- shadow-images that Paul portrays as temporal.   As I will demonstrate in the below (see Plato), the term Logos which is used in the first chapter of the Gospel of John, was drawn from the writings of Plato and the other mystic writings of the Greeks.   And the follower or disciple of Christ was instructed to seek both the Kingdom within, and the Logos within which was portrayed by the original disciples of Jesus as the True Prophet.   In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating that the Christian must seek to learn ONLY from the indwelling True Prophet/Logos/Son of God -- and reject the doctrines and dogma of the authorities of this world.   

The Parable Of The Prodigal Son: In the Gospels, the parables of Jesus are representative of Universal Truths that are equally applicable to all of mankind.   These parables are not written for the Jews, or the Christians -- but are representative of the Universal Laws under which all of mankind equally dwells.   Which means that the parable of the prodigal son can't be portrayed as representative of any one person, or group of men -- but rather, must be understood universally as presenting the reality that all of mankind are equally portrayed in the parable of the two sons -- i.e., aka the parable of the prodigal son.  

Many interpretations of the parable of the two sons have demonstrated that what is personified with respect to the reality of mankind as the prodigal son, remains an enigma -- to the degree that many aspects of what is presented in the parable can't be interpreted from the perspective of modern Church doctrines.   One of the primary problems is seen in the fact that modern Christians have been so spiritually disenfranchised by the dogma of the Church, that it remains virtually impossible for them to interpret and understand the parable from a Universal Perspective.   Who is the elder son who has never in any way deviated from the Will of God, and remains in the Kingdom of the Father?  How did mankind who is personified as the lost prodigal son, exist before venturing into this, the Far Country?   If it is true that we existed prior to being born into this life -- and even abandoned the Heavenly Kingdom by virtue of our own volition and choice -- then why don't we remember that aspect of our existence prior to our birth into this world?   In the parable, the prodigal son squanders away his inheritance on "riotous living" -- but what exactly is the inheritance that he is squandering away?   After squandering away his inheritance, the prodigal son falls under the control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- but who or what is the Citizen?   Paul portrayed the Citizen of the Far Country as the god of this world who rules over the earth.   In the parable, there is no savior who comes into the Far Country to redeem the suffering prodigal son.   Even when we, as the lost prodigal son, are suffering at the hands of the Citizen of the Far Country, our Heavenly Father does not come to the aid of the lost son -- but relies upon the son "...coming to his senses", and on his own choice and volition, chooses to return to the Kingdom of the Father on his own accord.  

If our colleges and universities taught true wisdom and knowledge, then they would build upon the foundation of the parable of the two sons. If our religions were led by enlightened men of God, then the leaders of these religions would convey to their congregations the universal wisdom of the parable of the prodigal son.  And when rightly understood, all of mankind are the personification of the prodigal son who has ventured into this world -- i.e., the Far Country -- and has become lost and dwell under the control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- sometimes portrayed as the god of this world -- controlled and limited by the consciousness of the earth.   And we don't remember our more distant past previous to the present cycle of birth, because we dwell in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see below).   But what this means is that all the organizations and institutions of mankind that exist in this world, are all equally under the dominion and control of the Citizen of the Far Country -- and having become corrupted, they all equally have been turned from their original design and intent, in order for the god of this world to enslave and continue to maintain control of the prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. 

  Why Can't Truth Exist In This World?  In what could be seen as a rather bazaar statement, in the Epistle of Peter to James the statement is made that if the esoteric body of Truth that Jesus could only reveal to his inner core of disciples was to become lost and thrown away, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"!!!  Which provokes the question: Could such a thing be true?   And perhaps even more important, what could possibly cause such a condition to exist that would make it virtually impossible for seekers to find the Truth?   The Gospel portrays this physical realm as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- Plato's Cave portrays this world as a Cave of Illusions -- modern physicists portray physical matter as a type of "blemish" that forms within the intersecting forces in an unseen field -- and what we do perceive with our physical senses, can be portrayed as a three-dimensional allegorical image of a higher twelve-dimensional reality that, because of the limitations of this physical realm, the complete image can't manifest.  Which is why it is warned: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).  Why?   Because what you see is only a partial representation of what is real -- i.e., a three-dimensional allegorical image of a higher twelve-dimensional reality that can't fully manifest in this realm.   And that what we see is an allegorical shadow-image, is the reason 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...".   Therefore, the seeker must develop the ability to perceive and understand with Wholeness -- what is beyond the three-dimensional limitations of this realm.     

When Paul stated to the baptized believers that he himself had instructed: "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) -- what he was stating was that until they deepen and expand their conscious mind beyond the organic three-dimensional limitations, they could only receive the entry-level "milk" of the Gospel message, because their carnal mind could not comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God.   And this is confirmed in the statement of Paul:  “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).     

When Jesus was asked why he did not speak plainly to the multitudes of people, he stated 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..." (Mark 4:11-12).   Why did they  "...see, and not perceive; and ...hear, and not understand..."?   Because of the three-dimensional limitations of man's physical organic senses and comprehension.  

  The Counterfeit Church Foundation - Secularized Religious Dogma: The Spiritual Core of Christianity remains virtually unknown today, because of direct government intrusion into the affairs of the Church with respect to acceptable doctrines of belief.   In the same way that in China only those Churches which are approved by the government are permitted, so too was the Church that came into being in the fourth century under the direct control of the Roman Emperors.   That the segment of the Church which c
