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 access to, and be nourished by the Divine Manna and life-giving 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 problem is seen in the fact that in order to understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the Words of Life, the scriptures must be read and understood within the foundational pattern of Mind as portrayed in symbols of the the Tree of Life.   And while many teachers and authorities among men portray the symbolism of the Tree of Life in many ways, the only valid portrayal is presented in the Wisdom of the teachings of Jesus and the Original Gospel.   The word Esoteric portrays Inward Knowledge -- and in reference to this body of Esoteric Knowledge that could only be revealed in the allegorical symbolism of the Gospels, the Epistle of Peter to James warns that if this Esoteric body of Knowledge was to become lost or thrown away, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"     

The scriptures were written by mystics (see An Inconvenient Truth) who composed their sacred writings to preserve a body of esoteric 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, Christians and Muslims 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.

 

Wholeness Of Self

The Cosmology Of Mind And Being

 

What is Wholeness?  With respect to the concept of Wholeness, Jesus portrayed himself as a physician: "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).   Before this verse can be understood we must first understand what it means to be Whole.   Which provokes the question: How is Wholeness achieved?   Contrary to the dogma of the modern Church, if Jesus is the savior who every person needs for salvation, then Jesus himself said the Church was wrong, and those who are Whole do not need him.  And as a physician, Jesus did not come for the salvation of those who are Whole, but only for those who are sick and in need of a physician.   And in total opposition to Church dogma, what this also means is that at the time the historical man Jesus walked the face of the earth, there existed people who he portrayed as "whole [and] righteous" who did not need Jesus the physician.  Jesus openly states that his mission as a spiritual physician is not for them, because they achieved the necessary Wholeness without him. 

Does everyone need Jesus as the modern Christian maintains?  While Jesus himself said that those who had achieved Wholeness did not need him as a spiritual physician -- i.e., They that are whole have no need of the physician..." -- and that with effort, all of mankind is capable of achieving a condition that Jesus portrayed as "whole [and] righteous", which means that these people who did achieve Wholeness, were not sick, and in Jesus' own words were not in need of him (Jesus) as a physician to heal them.   Which means that the whole foundation of modern Church dogma is man-made and in error. 

If this is true, the question must be asked: Was there any other early teachings that support this position of Jesus who came only to heal those who were sick and in need of a physician?  And this ultra-important teaching which is totally rejected by the Church, is further supported by a quotation of the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where Peter states: "For there would have been no need of Moses, or of the coming of Jesus, if of themselves they would have understood what is reasonable..."  And with respect to what is being portrayed as being reasonable to the degree that the person does not need either Moses of Jesus?  From an original Gospel perspective, the Apostle Peter is stating that those who seek to achieve Wholeness do not need either Moses or Jesus.  In total opposition to modern Church doctrine, Peter then added to the foregoing statement:  "Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords” (Clementine Homilies, Chap. 5, p139 Anti-Nicene Library).  Herein, what Peter is stating is that there is no salvation in merely calling upon the name of the Lord as Christians do today throughout their Churches -- but only in achieving Wholeness.   And when rightly understood, those who achieve Wholeness have brought this Condition about by doing the Will of God -- and having lived and manifest the Truth in their daily lives -- which Truth has been revealed to them directly from our Heavenly Father -- i.e., “My teaching is not My own, Jesus replied. It comes from Him who sent Me."  And then Jesus explained: "If anyone desires to do His will, he will know whether My teaching is from God or whether I speak on My own" (John 7:16-17).   What this means is that ANYONE who sincerely desires to do the Will of God, will know the Truth, and will learn the Truth directly from God -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God'" (John 6:45).  Therefore, in achieving the necessary Wholeness, they did not need Jesus as either a teacher, or for their salvation. 

What this demonstrates is that the vast majority of modern Christians are preaching a faux-doctrine when they portray belief in the man Jesus as being necessary for salvation.  If there were indeed people who had achieved Wholeness prior to the coming of Jesus, and therefore were not in need of a physician to heal them -- and they had achieved this Wholeness without Jesus -- and even prior to the advent of Jesus who came as a healer for those who were sick, it was noted that there would be people from every corner of the earth who would gain entrance into the Kingdom by achieving the necessary Wholeness -- i.e., "Then Jesus traveled throughout the towns and villages, teaching as He made His way toward Jerusalem. Lord, someone asked Him, will only a few people be saved? Jesus answered, Make every effort to enter through the narrow gate. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.  After the master of the house gets up and shuts the door, you will stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ But he will reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’ And he will answer, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers.’" (Luke 13:22-27).  The version of the foregoing in Matthew reads: "Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven" (Matt 7:21).  And what then is the "will of God"?  Thus, Jesus states:  "Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness’" (Matt 7:22-23).  What then is "lawlessness"?  Lawlessness must be understood as that mindset and actions that divides our Self and our Consciousness -- thereby inhibiting our ability to be, and achieve Wholeness.  And in the version in Luke the statement is added: "People will come from east and west and north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God" (Luke 13:29) -- and they will be able to enter into the "narrow gate" by virtue of their achieving the necessary Wholeness to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom.   Christians today feel confident that they have fulfilled the Gospel teachings by merely calling upon the name of Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.  They then call themselves Christians, while ignoring the warning that  "...‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.’"  And then there is the statement of Jesus: "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46 KJV).  And what did Jesus teach?  He taught the necessity of doing the Will of God, and becoming Whole. 

The most popular scripture used by the Gentile Christians in the pre-Nicene Church known as the Shepherd of Hermas, confirms the above statements that are in total opposition to the modern dogma of the Church where it is written:  “And the tower, I asked, what does it mean? This tower, he replied, is the Church. And these virgins, who are they? They are Holy Spirits, and men cannot otherwise be found in the kingdom of God unless these have put their clothing upon them: for if you receive the name only, and do not receive from them the clothing, they are of no advantage to you. For these virgins are the powers of the Son of God. If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”.  The problem from a modern Christian perspective is seen in the fact that it is impossible to put on the clothing of the virgins (Holy Spirits), without first becoming Whole.  And therefore, “If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”. Thus, if you call yourselves Christian, but fail to become Whole, “it will be in vain that you bear His name”.

Jesus The Physician: The success of a physician is demonstrated in the physicians ability to heal the symptoms and disease of those who are sick.  In the case of spiritual sickness, to heal and alleviate the symptoms of the disease that has stricken the person, is to free them from the shackles of their sickness.  When Jesus portrayed those who were not sick as being "whole [and] righteous", what he stated was that mankind in his healed condition ceased to sin and fulfilled the Will of God -- and that those who have achieved this condition of Wholeness, had brought about a condition of sinless living on their own.  But in light of the witness of those disciples who Jesus taught, this is confirmed in the quotation pertaining to the Ebionite Nazirenes where it is documented that they were of the position that 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, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).  That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because of his success in overcoming the Laws, is demonstrated in the words: "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..."   And this confirms this statement with respect to the true potential of all of mankind that Jesus taught, as demonstrated in the words of Hippolytus when he wrote that they believed that when anyone "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   Which means that any person who fulfills the Law and becomes Whole, is then able to become a Christ.  And that this reality is common to all of mankind, is the reason why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).  From the perspective of the Apostle Peter's above statement, as our brother the man Jesus was the first to "...understood what is reasonable..."  in the fulfillment of the Law and the Will of God.      

The Suppression Of How Wholeness Is Achieved: The doctrine that man is a congenital sinner who was born in sin and in need of a Savior as proposed in the Augustinian doctrine of Original Sin (see The Folly Of Original Sin) was imported into the Church from the Mithraic based teachings of the Iranian prophet Mani, in order to explain and fill the great void that the Church suppression of important teachings on the pre-existent soul created.   The fact that it is easily proven that the original disciples of Jesus believed in the pre-existent Soul that evolved to Wholeness and Completion over the course of many lifetimes (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development ) -- and that the Church Father Origen was correct 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 Early Church On Predestination), means that there is no place in the Original Gospel teachings for the doctrine of Original Sin that was incorporated into the Church teachings when the teachings on pre-existence was suppressed and outlawed.   Why was this ultra-important teaching outlawed?  Because the spiritually disenfranchised clergy and secular leaders in the Church did not want to embrace the original teaching that they had to pick up their cross and follow the pattern of Jesus in becoming Whole -- they only wanted to believe in him from the Mithraic perception of him as the latest incarnation of God incarnate who only had to be believed in.   The Roman Emperor Constantine was not baptized until he was on his death-bed, in order for him to ensure his salvation.   He had been informed by the Pagan priests that he was too evil to obtain his salvation -- but was promised by the quasi-Christian clergy that the rite of baptism would absolve him of his sins.   In order to assure his salvation, Constantine kept a Christian priest in constant tow, in order to baptize him at his death.   But what this also means is that from an Original Gospel perspective where the deeds of Constantine and the faux-priests of the Church would be confronted by their evil deeds in subsequent lifetimes -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7) -- confirmed that there is no salvation in merely believing in Jesus as modern Christians maintain to this very day -- i.e., "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..." (Matt 7:21-23).  Which means that apart from achieving the necessary Wholeness, there is no salvation in merely believing in Jesus as maintained by the Church.  But what this also meant was that the whole teaching on the journey of the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Completion over the course of many UNIQUE lifetimes, had to be totally suppressed and even outlawed.   But what this also means is that the foundation of the Church has been built upon a lie and a bogus fraud.   

With respect to the removal and suppression of the original teaching on the pre-existent Soul, quoting Prof. Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Prof. Burrows writes: “There are those who believe or assume that the Greek and Hebrew texts from which our translations are made are infallible. No person who has studied textual criticism at all could believe that. The most conservative scholars in the most conservative churches recognize that the text has become corrupt at many points in the course of its transmission. If that were not already well known and universally admitted, the Dead Sea Scrolls would demonstrate it conclusively.”  When Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.   This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.   The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine” (August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine), few modern Christians have even begun to understand why Prof. Allegro made this statement, which confirmed the position of A. Powell Davies that: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  What was it about the Original Foundational Gospel teachings that had virtually nothing in common with what modern Christians believe today?   And perhaps the more important question: Does it matter?

The doctrine that man was not only born in sin -- but is a congenital sinner that must be redeemed -- and thereafter continues to be stricken by the symptoms associated with the disease of sin -- is very much apostasy to the Gospel teachings.  In opposition to the Augustinian doctrine of Original Sin, a monk named Pelagius wrote that: “Man is able, if he likes, to live without sin and keep the commandments of God, in as much as God gives him this ability”.   It is important to understand the relationship of Wholeness and the words of Pelagius that "...in as much as God gives him this ability” -- and it is the condition of Wholeness of Self that bestows the Power of God to live without and apart from sin.   Which provokes the question: If God gave you the power and ability to live apart from sin, would you be able to separate yourself from sinful behavior and acts?   In portraying some people as "whole [and] righteous" and in not need of a moral and spiritual physician, the whole of modern Church doctrine must be seen as not only bogus and counterfeit, but in total opposition to the purpose and objectives of the Original Gospel teachings.  And as noted in the words of the Gospel that there did exist a group of people at the time of Jesus who had themselves achieved a life of "wholeness [and] righteousness" who did not need a physician to heal them and provide salvation, means that all of mankind are equally able to live a life of "wholeness [and] righteousness".  Which demonstrates that the statement of Pelagius in opposition to the Mithraic based teachings of the Iranian prophet Mani which was adopted as the foundation of Church dogma, was correct.

The most popular and accepted scripture over the first three centuries was the Shepherd of Hermas (see Shepherd), which states that once one receives the sacrament of baptism which is the "wedding garment", there is only one opportunity for repentance from any future sins -- i.e., "For he that hath received remission of sins ought no longer to sin, but to dwell in purity.  ...But I say unto you', saith he, `if after this great and holy calling any one, being tempted of the devil, shall commit sin, he hath only one (opportunity of) repentance."  Is this statement in the Shepherd of Hermas any different than the words of the Apostle Paul in the warning: "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).    Thus, Acts 3:19 confirms the original teachings that baptism -- as the required wedding garment -- must constitute a total repentance from sin, and the living of a life where the believer does not consciously commit any future sin: "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you...".   To repent and turn to God, requires a total change of mind and lifestyle.   Those who truly accomplish this, will personally receive the Anointing (Messiah/Christ), which will open their minds and enlighten them in accord with their Spiritual Condition.   

As older pre-Nicene collections and copies of ancient scriptures are recovered through archaeological discoveries, they continue to demonstrate the existence of an entirely different Christianity that is totally foreign to the Church that enlists under the name of Christ today.  In fact, even with the documentation long possessed by the modern church, it is easy to literally pull the proverbial rug right out from under the very foundation of popular Christian thought.  In a surviving excerpt of what has been historically known as the Gospel According to the Hebrews, which was reported to be the "original version of Matthew" that was composed in the Hebrew language, of which our present day gospel is a Greek translation of, it was written: "If ye be in my bosom and do not the will of my Father which is in heaven, out of my bosom will I cast you away".  In the late nineteenth century a library of scriptures was uncovered which is today known as the Oxyrhynchus Papyri -- wherein this verse is found reading: "Though ye be gathered together with me in my bosom, if ye do not my commandants, I will cast you forth".   And to the horror of modern Christians who reject the Gospel of the Nazirenes (see Gospel Of The Nazirenes) and all its strange readings, we once again find this same verse: And I say to you, "Though you be gathered together in my bosom, if you keep not my commandments I will cast you forth. For if you keep not the lesser mysteries, who shall give you the greater."   This same verse of scripture is quoted in what is historically known as the 2nd Epistle of Clement, where it is written: "Let us, then, not only call Him Lord, for that will not save us. For He saith, 'Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall be saved, but he that worketh righteousness' …For this reason… the Lord hath said, 'Even though ye were gathered together to me in my very bosom, yet if ye were not to keep my commandments, I would cast you off, and say unto you, Depart from me; I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity’".

What this means is that the religion of Jesus in its original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin after coming to the knowledge of Christ -- being initially clothed in the "wedding garment" of Spiritual Baptism -- crucify the Son of God afresh when they then willfully sin -- and in the warning of Paul, "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."  This is why Paul stated with respect to those who call themselves Christian, and continue to live a sinful life: "But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor" (Gal 2:17-18 KJV).   Which confirms the alternate ending of the Gospel of Mark which reads: "This Age of lawlessness and unbelieving lies under the sway of Satan, who will not allow what lies under the unclean spirits to understand the truth and power of God; therefore, they said to Christ, reveal your righteousness now. Christ answered them, The term of years for Satan's power has now expired, but other terrors are at hand. I was delivered to death on behalf of sinners, that they might return to the truth and sin no more, that they might inherit that glory of righteousness which is spiritual and imperishable in heaven" (Moffatt, quoting Gospel Of Mark in Codex W - Also quoted by St. Jerome as being the authentic ending of the Gospel of Mark).    Thus, Jesus warned those who would call upon the Lord and expect to have earned salvation: “But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46 NKJ).   And, “Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven” (Matt 7:21 NIV).   That the very people who with their lips proclaim themselves to believe, continue to lie "...under the sway of Satan" -- or, in the words of John: "Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.  He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning" (1 John 3:7-8 NKJV).     

The sincere Christian will of course pose the question: Is the above teaching on baptism valid and correct?   Is the Christian held accountable for their willful sins after baptism?   On this very subject the Apostle Peter makes the profound statement: "If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and, A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud" (2 Pet 2:20-22 NIV).   Where the modern Church promotes the doctrine that they are saved by Grace regardless of the manner in which they live their lives, Peter not only states that this doctrine is in grave error, but correctly states that: "It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them."  Every Christian should ask themselves: How Can This Be???  How can those who have never known the teachings of Christ, be better off than those who having heard and been baptized into TheWay, and are complacent towards those teachings? 

What does this mean to mankind as a whole?  If any of mankind as portrayed in the parable of the Prodigal Son who "came to his senses" (Luke 15:17) -- and having "come to his senses"  was therefore able to "...understand what is reasonable", and bring about the condition of Wholeness within their own mind and being, they would not need Moses or Jesus, or any other physician or teacher of this world.   And this is why there is no savior who was sent into the Far Country to rescue the lost prodigal son who was portrayed as existing in a state of death -- "...For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found" (Luke 15:24).  And when rightly understood, in order to "come to one's senses", the person must achieve Wholeness.    

When rightly understood, the statement of Jesus contained in the Gospel of Thomas is of an utmost importance to understand the meaning of Wholeness -- i.e., "Jesus said, ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".  And while this may not make sense to the vast majority of Christians, if you understand that in order to Know Thyself, you must have achieved a high level of Wholeness, then you will begin to understand why those who lack the true knowledge of Self, dwell in a state of intellectual and spiritual poverty.  But what this also means is that if those who teach or lead you fail to understand the reality of Wholeness within their own mind and being, then you are being led into a condition of intellectual and spiritual poverty by virtue of the shackles of ignorance that has been imposed upon you.  "My People Are Destroyed For Lack Of Knowledge, Because You Have Rejected Knowledge, I Reject You..." (Hosea 4:6). 

If mankind as portrayed in the parable of the lost prodigal son does not need a teacher or a savior -- but must achieve Wholeness in order to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom -- then the question must be asked: How can this Wholeness be brought about?  If we possessed Self-Knowledge and understood the Cosmology of Mind and Being, then we would understand that Wholeness requires the development of all the spheres and innate aspects of our mind to bring about an expanded and deepened manifestation of consciousness.  When Paul spoke of the need to develop spiritual maturity and wholeness in the statement: "Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought" (1 Cor 2:6), Paul was portraying a person who had achieved Wholeness of Mind and Being.  And to explain to the baptized and committed congregation of Christians who Paul had himself taught what he portrayed as the historical accounts and "traditions" of the Gospel, Paul stated: "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).  Why could they only be nourished by what Paul portrayed as "milk" for "babes in Christ who could only be given the quasi-historical traditions of the Gospel?   Because, until their (human) minds were transformed, matured and made Whole, they remained unable to comprehend both the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings, and their own higher Soul and Spiritual reality.   And this inability to understand the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel, as well as the higher reality of Self, continues to remain true even today among faith-based Christians. 

The term Esoteric (secret) Knowledge applies to the Inward body of the Knowledge of Mind and Spirit -- and when Jesus taught that the Kingdom can never come upon the earth so as to be externally seen -- because it can only be found and entered within the Mind of Mankind -- then it is the Esoteric meaning of the Gospel that Paul could not convey to the immature faith-based Christians that is the most important body of Knowledge that man can embrace -- i.e., "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21).  And this is why Jesus stated that the Mysteries of the Kingdom as manifest in the Esoteric Knowledge of both the true meaning of the scriptures and the Cosmology of our own mind and consciousness, belongs only to the sincere seeker who has picked up their own cross and travailed in TheWay -- i.e., "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again..." (Mark 4:11-12 ASV) -- and the term, "...lest haply they should turn again", is stated in reference to the Kingdom that can only be found within themselves that they must be consciously restored to.

What is the source of sin?  Of evil?  Of the great discord that is the cause of world-conflict?  Why can't mankind embrace the path of peace?  Why can't the world's greatest minds find the solution to the dilemma of sin, evil and conflict?  Why does all their solutions come to naught?   The answer is, Self-Ignorance and what it means to be Whole.  Sadly, the answer to the plight of mankind is presented in these words of wisdom:  "For those who guide this people are leading them astray; And those who are guided by them are brought to confusion" (Isaiah 9:16).   And when rightly understood, the error of their ways is the result of self-ignorance.  When it is realized that those who lead the people fail to even know what Wholeness of Self means, they can only be defined in the words: "Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit” (Matt 15:14).  As stated in the words of Wisdom presented in the Gospel of Thomas: "Jesus said, ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".  And thus, while the world dwells in intellectual and spiritual poverty, the shackles of self-ignorance imposed upon mankind by blind leaders continue to bring about the death and suffering of innocent men, women and children. 

Sadly, while they were supposed to be the Light of the World, the vast majority of Christians not only reject the validity of the words of Jesus as presented above in the Gospel of Thomas, but they fail to acknowledge even the Gospel of Thomas itself.   Why?  Because like the Jews, the leaders of their Churches have thrown away the Key of Knowledge and have lost all understanding of the meaning and purpose of the Original Gospel.  Because those who have been guiding the people have drawn their attention outwardly -- looking outwardly for what can only be found within themselves -- totally abandoning any pursuit of Self-Knowledge -- they possess virtually no understanding of what it means to be Whole.   And thus, true to the words of Isaiah, "...those who are guided by them are brought to confusion".     

When the higher reality of Self and Wholeness is understood, modern academia is clueless as to the cause of man's dilemma.  And while Christians mean well, the doctrines of their Church has made it virtually impossible for them to truly come to the spiritual physician who in the words of the Apostle Peter, "Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords”.  In order to be healed by the physician, you must follow his directions, and you must consume the medicine he dispenses.   The problem is that the man-made doctrines of the Church totally undermine the very purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings   And in the suppression to the Higher Knowledge of one's own Self that is the cause of all sin, evil and conflict in the world.  Why?   Because they totally lack the necessary Wholeness of Mind and Being that would enable them to comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.  Because organic man exists in a fragmented and incomplete embryonic condition of mind, the untransformed believer is simply incapable of comprehending anything beyond the mundane things of this world.  And what will become clear throughout this article, is that every person who has ever walked the face of the earth possesses the innate potential to connect and learn directly from the Indwelling Logos (a.k.a. Son of God).  And when the Gospel account declares that there is only One Way into the Kingdom, it is making reference to this process of development and transformation known as TheWay -- i.e.,  "I worship the God of our fathers As a follower of The Way" (Acts 24:14). 

When rightly understood, the question that is being posed is how can we become nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life as portrayed in the statement: "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).   The following allegorical verses are the most important with respect to the Journey of the Soul where it is written: "...therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life."  The cherubim are an allegorical  representative of the Laws that perpetually test us for the necessary Wholeness that the Soul must achieve to be nourished by the Life-Giving Fruit of the Tree of Life.  These Laws are not intended to inhibit us -- but to test us, to see if we are Whole and Complete.  Which means that the lower nature of the Soul as personified in the prodigal son, must perpetually wander in this, the Far Country (Outer Darkness), until which time the Soul can achieve the necessary Wholeness and Completion that enables the Soul to prevail over the Laws that allegorically guard the Fruit (Divine Manna/Knowledge ) of the Tree of Life.  The historical man Jesus was the first of the prodigal sons to complete the Journey of the Soul -- becoming At-One with the Indwelling Logos -- and the Divine Knowledge of all of Creation.   Therefore, the Soul of the historical man Jesus was Complete and Whole -- and the purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings was to bring about this same developmental-transformation within the body, mind, Soul and Spirit of the sincere seekers who personify the prodigal son who comes "to his senses", and begins the journey Home.  And the process of bringing about the necessary Wholeness and Completion is portrayed 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).  When the Prodigal Son is nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life, only then can s/he enter through the "strait gate" within their own mind and being, and consciously enter what is portrayed as the Edenic Kingdom.   When it is recognized that the parables in the Gospels are Universal Truths that are equally relevant to the lives of all of mankind -- and that all of mankind as portrayed in the parable of the Prodigal Son is able to return to the Kingdom of the Father without a savior, by "coming to his senses" as stated in the parable -- then what is being presented in the parable is confirmation of the above quoted statement that there is no need for a savior or law-giver when the seeker "...understands what is reasonable".   And this is why the Gospel account of Jesus states that "They that are whole have no need of the physician...".      

Man's superior intellect and ability to know and understand and evolve to a condition of Enlightenment in the Knowledge of all Truths, is manifest in THE POTENTIAL of his great diversity of Mind that has the unique ability to perceive all sides of any given equation -- diverse, complex and often conflicting perspectives that can in many instances be portrayed as paradoxical opposites.  What is a paradox?  A paradox exists when two opposing truths are equally true, though often conflicting -- and can only be harmonized by an evolved third-force balance (of mind) that functions on an higher plane than the two opposing opposite truths.  A paradox is often portrayed in the image of the Triangle at the right -- where the two opposing paradoxical truths are represented by the points of the opposite horizontal line -- with the (evolved) third-force balance existing on a higher plane -- with the angles which are representative of the Laws being equal but reversed on the horizontal line, and equal again on the third-force balance on the higher plane.  An immature (earthly) understanding would be portrayed with the third-force balance existing on the same horizontal line as the two opposing paradoxical truths.   Thus, as the mind matures and the Laws (angles) are prevailed over on the elevated higher plane, only then can the paradoxical opposites be resolved.  And from a Trinitarian perspective, this is a reality of the Three being One and Equal.

For this higher third-force balance to exist, each of the opposing opposites must have evolved to a condition of fullness in their own right -- and this fullness is symbolically demonstrated in the image of the Triangle in the equality of the angles (Laws) on each side of the paradoxical line.  How is this accomplished?  In accord with your own Soul's previous accomplishments -- i.e., your Soul's weaknesses and strengths that each person brings into their present life that they are living -- with the Natural Laws of Creation which cause you to be born polarized to one of the twelve spheres of mind -- thereby, causing you to perceptively see and understand from that spheres perspective.   In the words of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis see The Biblical Foundation Mindset http://ChristianReincarnation.org#BiblicalFoundationalMindset ).  What is your Soul's (developed) strengths and weaknesses?  In view of the fact that the Condition with respect to the depth and intensity of the Light of the Soul is easily perceived, the conditions of birth and the Laws your Soul needs to be born under is easily discerned.  And in most instances, the Soul itself chooses the life it will be born into.   Jesus said: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt 5:48) -- and this perfection can best be evaluated from the perspective of Wholeness: "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). 

Mankind possess the INNATE POTENTIAL to perceptively comprehend the complex equations of life, because of the POTENTIAL of his  great diversity of Mind that is able to perceive and understand what the person sees from many varied and sometimes conflicting perspectives -- a unique ability with which mankind has been imbued, by virtue of a great diversity of mind that is contingent upon unique opposite spheres or centers within the construct of the same mind that simultaneously perceive all of life from different and often paradoxical perspectives and understandings.  But this ability to perceive any given situation from opposite and often conflicting perspectives, requires each of the centers of mind that perceive from opposite perspectives, to be developed independently of the other spheres of mind.  F. Scott Fitzgerald stated: "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function."   Ultimately, when the pattern of mind as personified in the Tree of Life is understood, an Enlightened Soul must be able to hold four (4) paradoxical opposite truths in their mind and still retain the ability to not only function -- but to perceive the Evolved Third-Force of reality that exists on a higher plane that merges the four paradoxical opposites into One Dynamic Thought and Expression of Higher Truth.   The Higher Perspective is never from one side or the other of the equation.  Yet, if both sides to the equation are not INDEPENDENTLY developed to their own fullness and maturity, then the Higher Mind is incapable of perceiving from the perspective of an Enlightened and Balanced Perspective.  

The Potential Enlightened Mind of man is dependent upon his ability to perceive and understand all opposite sides of all equations presented to him.   But to develop this unique ability to see and comprehend all opposing thoughts and realities, man must develop each of the centers of mind which produce those insights -- insights that can only be evolved, when the whole of the mind is functioning from that sphere of thought and mind.  In order to develop the (inward-looking) Intuitive Spheres of Mind and its intuitive insights that often set it in opposition to the Linear Spheres of Mind, the Soul must be born into a life (or series of lives) where the Intuitive insights are dominant -- and this development requires an environment where the Intuitive insights are able to (externally) interact with not only their opposite Linear insights, but also the other ten (10) spheres of mind -- each of which perceive and understand the world and self from a totally different and often conflicting perspectives.  And in the same way, in order develop the (outward-looking) Linear Spheres of Mind and its linear insights that often set it in opposition to the Intuitive Spheres of Mind, the Soul must be born into a life (or series of lives) where the Linear insights are dominant -- and this development requires an environment where the Linear insights are able to interact with not only their opposite Intuitive insights, but also the other ten (10) spheres of mind -- each of which perceive and understand the world and self from a totally different and often conflicting perspective.  And this is also true of all twelve (12) spheres of mind where the Soul is born into a life where one sphere is dominant, and is able to develop by interacting with the insights of the other eleven (11) spheres of mind.   Therefore, in order to develop each Soul to its full potential, the Natural Laws orchestrate lives where the soul-generated personalities are polarized to one(1)  aspect of thought within one of the twelve spheres of mind, and sees and understands life only from the perspective of that aspect of the sphere the person is born into.   And this process of being born into polarized aspects of the twelve spheres of mind will continue, until the Soul-Mind is evolved to the degree that Wholeness can be achieved and manifested.      

Our True-Self or Soul-Self exists on a Higher Plane that cannot manifest in this three-dimensional realm because of the inherent human limitations of consciousness and being.  Yet, man is capable of bringing about the necessary expansion and deepening of mind that permits him to be At-One with his Higher Soul-Self.   Therefore, what this realm of three-dimensional reality does supply, is an environment where aspects of mind can manifest and interact with other and even opposite aspects of mind that is necessary to stimulate growth and development.   In order for each of the twelve spheres of mind to evolve to their own fullness, they must be able to manifest and interact with their opposites.  And without this interaction, no growth and development can be brought about.   Which is why this realm is often portrayed as God's School House for His divine offspring (prodigal sons). 

What is portrayed as the Logos (Mind of God) which is presented to be the Third-Force balance or Offspring of Mother/Father God -- i.e., the Son of God -- exists on a Higher Plane than our True-Self or Soul-Self.   In the article below I will portray each soul-generated personality (that we are) as a single-neuron in the mind of the Soul -- and each Soul which is our True-Self, as a single Neuron in the Mind of God.    Which means that as a single neuron in the mind of the Soul, it is through the interaction with others and especially our opposites that initiates growth, development and higher maturity.  Thus, if a great meteor was to impact this world and wipe out all organic life, a new world would have to be developed that would serve the crucial needs that this present world is supporting.   Quoting from The Evolving Soul

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

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).    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.

    

The Natural Laws of Creation cause each action to return to its source.  In the Alpha of Creation, God generated all the Souls into existence as "sparks" of the Divine Mind as stated in the quotation from the Zohar above.  And these Souls formed what can be portrayed as 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).  God therefore experiences through the Souls that form the Divine Mind.   But in the Alpha of Creation, infinite darkness and ignorance prevailed, because no experiential knowledge existed.  Therefore, in order for the individual Souls to develop, they had to interact with each other -- which is basically impossible in the twelve (12) dimensional Realm of Souls.  And in accord with the holographic divine pattern that is replicated into all levels of Creation, in the same way that an infinite number of Souls came into existence in the Divine Mind, soul-generated personalities in the form of man and woman came into existence in the mind of the Soul.   So the Soul generated personalities were then able to interact and experience in this three (3) dimensional realm of duality.  Duality being where the opposites of mind and being could manifest and interact with each other.  

In the same way that the Natural Laws of Creation cause each action to return to its Source -- the individual Souls must return to Creator God -- and each of the soul-generated personalities representative of mankind, must return to the Soul that generated that personality -- as stated in the words: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11).    

What this means is that each of the Souls generated in the Alpha of Creation, MUST return to their SOURCE -- but can only return to their SOURCE when that Soul has achieved Wholeness -- as stated in the above: "...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”.   And while Creator-God is able to look down upon all of Creation that is beneath God's Level of Consciousness, without the necessary Wholeness, the lower aspects of Creation cannot perceive upward beyond their own level of mental and spiritual development and Wholeness.  And this is also true with respect to mankind as soul-generated personalities -- i.e., while our Soul-Self can see and observe our struggles and is cognizant of all our thoughts and actions, we cannot perceive above our earthly level of consciousness without achieving a high degree of Wholeness within our own mind and being.   Therefore, to Know Thyself, you must achieve Wholeness and attain a Condition of being At-One with your True-Self.  And because of the Natural Law of Return, we cannot jump over our Soul-Level of Self.   Unless the person has achieved Wholeness and Perfection in the manner of the historical man Jesus, mankind cannot communicate directly with God.   And when we develop our inward facilities of mind, only then can we begin to communicate with our own Higher Soul-Self.   And this inability to communicate directly with God -- or, because we are soul-generated images that exist within the mind of our Souls -- this is the reason why the Deists maintained that God does not directly intervene in the affairs of man (see The Clockmaker Vs Jalopy Universe).   Quoting from the previous link: In the same way that once fertilized, an embryo develops in accord with the Natural Laws, the same is true with respect to all of Creation.  When the Laws that were put into effect are understood, perhaps the best way to portray these Laws that the Deist's portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, is as a Spiritual Bio-Feedback machine that dynamically evolves each soul to perfection by intimately responding to our every action, reaction and failure to act -- and responds appropriately when the time is manifest when the opportunity for our greatest learning and advancement is brought about.  That these Laws were put into action in the Alpha of Creation -- and are the Perfect Works of Creator-God that is Dynamically connected to movement of man -- is a reality of the Laws that the core Deists attempted unsuccessfully to convey to the theists and organized religion.  Finally, it is ultra important to understand the primary difference between the Theist and Deist perceptions of God and the two allegorical Creation Accounts in Genesis (see The Two Creation Accounts ).

We dwell under the Domain of the Natural Laws of Creator-God that were put into effect in the Alpha of Creation (see The Laws Of Creation).  And it is these Laws that were put into effect in the First Genesis Creation Account (see The Laws of the Two Creation Accounts and how they intimately effect all of mankind), that are responsible for evolving all of Creation from the Alpha of Dark Ignorance, to the Omega of Enlightened Light that guarantee that all of Creation MUST return to its Source.  And because 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) -- all Actions MUST return to their Source: "...So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11).  And this is accomplished by the Law of Return.  And this is also the basis of the statement: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7).  Or the assertion that “God will give to each person according to what he has done” (Rom 2:6).   How?  This is brought about through the Natural Laws that returns each action back to its Source.  Which can also be stated in the words: “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) -- which can also be expressed in the words: "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets" (Matt 7:12).  Why is these Words spoken by Creator-God "...the Law and the Prophets"?  Because of the Law of Return which causes all actions to return to its Source -- and as explored in the below, because of the Law of Octaves, when our own actions return back to us, they often return in the opposite polarity -- which ultimately is the cause of what man portrays as good and evil. 

As I will state and explain a number of times with respect to the Law of Return: When rightly understood, the Gospel Sermon on the Mount is a proclamation of the Natural Laws that control all realities in the life that every person is living (see Jesus The Law Professor).  And the Natural Laws interact and intimately affect every aspect of your life regardless of your belief or non-belief.  When rightly understood, this world can therefore be portrayed as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that for the objective and purpose of our learning and bringing about our development, returns to each person the fruit of their own words, thoughts, desires and deeds -- not immediately as when we touch a hot plate -- but rather, in many instances this realm returns our actions back to us in a subsequent life when a reversal of polarity has been brought about.   As stated in the Bible: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7).   Not immediately -- because that would negate the process of growth, development and testing.  If you hit someone, and you were immediately hit in the same measure you did to the other person, then you would simply refrain from hitting the other person.   The reasons you hit the other person would not be resolved, just suppressed.  But if the Laws of Creation brought about that condition which was reversed, only then would you -- as a victim of your Soul's own previous actions -- learn the consequences of being hit.  You would then learn from the experience of the victim -- and, because your Soul would possess the experiences of both, your Soul would learn and develop from the experiences of both aggressor and victim.  And this is why the Enlightened Deists who understood the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, maintained that Creator-God does not directly intervene in the affairs of man -- which affairs are maintained and orchestrated by the Natural Laws of Creation which interact with our every word, thought, desire and deed.   How?  Because as stated in the above, “‘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).  Ultimately, we all dwell within the One Mind.  Therefore, there are no secrets -- and every thought we entertain, on another level interacts with the Laws of Creation: "For from within the hearts of men come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, debauchery, envy, slander, arrogance, and foolishness. 23All these evils come from within, and these are what defile a man” (Mark 7:21-22).       

Wholeness can be measured by our frequency of body, mind and spirit -- "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he" (Prov 23:7).  Which can be said in the words: "Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you" (Matt 7:1-2).   When you judge, you become anchored by your judgments -- but when you intelligently discern, you manifest a more Whole Frequency of body, mind and spirit.  In view of the fact that the thinking of most people are of the earth, they are therefore only capable of perceiving and understanding what is at an earth-vibration of mind.   And because we dwell within the One Mind -- and our every thought is monitored and interacts with the Laws of Creation -- what is allegorical portrayed as Judgment Day is in reality a portrayal of our daily interaction with the Natural Laws -- i.e., quoting from Judgment Day - Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being: The Word of God is manifest in the Laws which continually monitor and interact with our every word, thought, desire and deed: "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart" (Heb 4:12).  While a person may plan and attempt to devise the road he desires to travel, the Laws direct his steps based upon the thoughts of his heart:  "A person may plan his own journey, but the LORD [the Laws] directs his steps" (Prov 16:9).   Those who are able to present and manifest Wholeness and Spiritual Maturity to the Laws, find the Higher Paths of TheWay opening for them: "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way" (Psalms 37:23).   When we judge others, we impose our own thinking upon them.  When we discern the circumstances of their lives, we seek to understand both ourselves, and the Natural Laws that are working upon the other person.   

The inherent human problem is seen in the fact that man's POTENTIAL of great diversity of mind MUST be developed -- and since the development of MIND requires the exercise of freewill and the making of intelligent and proper choices in life -- and because man is often motivated by his own carnal appetites over the higher good -- the great potential of diversity of mind is rarely present in the undeveloped organic "natural" mind of the vast majority of unenlightened mankind.  In the same way that a fetus has the potential to be a child -- a child has the potential to be an adult person -- mankind in his embryonic condition of mind has the potential to be an Enlightened Being of Light -- and the Natural Laws of Creation will continue to develop each Soul, until each Soul has achieved their full potential.  The problem is seen in the fact that mankind is in most instances led by what the Gospels portray as blind-guides who are ignorant of both man's true potential and destiny, and how this destiny will be brought about through the Natural Laws of Creation.   In the same way that the Natural Laws work within the fetus to evolve through every level of spiritual development, these same Natural Laws work within the Mind of God to evolve all of Creation.  What this means is that the lost prodigal sons will continue to roam the destitute places in this, the Far Country or Outer Darkness of mind and being -- dwelling under the domain of the earthly power that is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- until which time the Natural Laws has evolved him until he achieves his True Potential. 

The vast majority of mankind remain anchored to a carnal mind-set, portrayed by Paul as an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending its own higher Soul and Spiritual Natures.   Thereby rendering the vast majority of mankind as a stranger to their own True-Self.   And so long as man remains controlled by the animal-consciousness and self-serving appetites of his own lower animal nature, it will remain impossible for him to advance toward his ultimate destiny (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature) -- a destiny that he has no choice to eventually achieve.  Therefore, when we make reference to man's INNATE POTENTIAL, what we are referencing is a reality of Higher Mind that MUST be developed.  And thus, the necessary development of the twelve (12) independent spheres of mind that are capable of enabling the greater-mind to perceive and understand independently from both sides of all equations -- and bring the independent perspectives up to a higher understanding of the greatly varied segments (of mind) that the lower positions are based upon -- only then can we begin to achieve the NECESSARY Higher Understanding that is our True Reality of Consciousness as the divine offspring of Creator-God.   Thus, the problem is seen in the fact that this Higher Understanding requires the development of each of the (12) independent spheres which out of many fragmented perspectives serve as the foundation for the higher consensus enlightened position.   But to achieve this Higher Mind, each of the twelve (12) Spheres of mind must be developed and evolved independently from the other Spheres of mind, before they are then able to begin to function in harmony and oneness on the higher plane of man's true potential.  And what this means is that each of these twelve (12) spheres of mind that perceive self and life from different and often opposite perspectives, must not only exist within the same Mind -- thereby enabling the great diversity of mind necessary to attain higher vision and comprehension -- but each unique sphere must possess maturity by developing independently of the other spheres of mind that perceive from a conflicting and paradoxical opposite perspective.   And if one fails to understand this necessary pattern of mind that is able to perceive and balance the opposite perspectives of self and life, then such a person dwells in the condition of abject intellectual poverty portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas -- i.e., "Jesus said, ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".

Quoting from The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind: If you could acknowledge the great volume of the almost countless and endless perceptive-opinions among mankind, what only a very few people understand is the fact that these opinions are the result of the Natural Laws causing each person to see and understand the world and the life they are living from a unique and different perspective.   Why does the Natural Laws do this?   In order for all the aspects of mind to develop -- which, when reaching maturity in their own right,  have the ability to raise up the whole.  Allegorically, this different and often conflicting body of perceptive-opinions has been portrayed as the Tower of Babel Syndrome (see Gen 11:1-7) -- where because each person is functioning under different Laws, they not only see the world differently, but their language which is based upon the fragment of mind that is the foundation of their thinking, is often incoherent to others. 

What is not generally understood is the fact that each of these countless opinions are drawn from specific fragments of mind -- wherein, each fragment (of mind) is an integral part of the Whole -- and each fragment is created and maintained by the Natural Laws of Creation.  Which means that the opinion of each person has been pre-ordained by the workings of the Natural Laws upon their consciousness.  In the subheading entitled Jesus The (Law) Professor I explore the reality that what Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount was not an improvable religious belief -- but very much a vision on the actual workings of the Natural Laws that control every aspect of our personal development and lives.  Mankind learns and develops by becoming what he judges and condemns.   How?  Because his judgments and actions are returned back to him -- often in the opposite polarity from which they were originally expressed. 

Holographically, as above, so below, and within -- and the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life as patterned at the right, is the universal reality of mind throughout not only all of Creation, but also within mankind's own mind and being.  From a holographic perspective, the Laws of Nature must maintain balance across the spectrum of Mind that is manifest on a Cosmic scale (see The Enigma Of The Twelve - And The Tree Of Life).   The Tree of Life is a perceptual pattern of mind as manifest in man, in the Cosmos, and within the Mind of God as manifest throughout all of Creation.  Allegorically, the pattern of mind is portrayed in the twelve tribes of Israel, as well as the twelve disciples of Jesus in the Gospel accounts.  As presented throughout this article, the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), is the male and female outer left and right columns personified in the pattern on the right.   There is no such thing as a male or female Soul.  The Soul is a Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ) that is the perfect balance of the male/female opposites, as well as what is portrayed as the heavenly and earthly.  And it is this pattern of Duality that must be overcome within us, in order to inherit the Gospel promise of gaining entrance into Life.  And this reality is presented in the Gospel of Thomas in the 22nd saying where the disciples as Jesus: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"  To which Jesus replied: "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 rightly understood, the merger of opposites is making reference to the opposite spheres of mind of the diagram of the Tree of Life at the right.

By enabling the Soul to incarnate within the limited domain and perspective of opposite spheres of mind polarized to different points of consciousness within the pattern of mind as personified in the Tree of Life, it is for the most part impossible for a soul-generated personality to recall the previous lives their Soul has lived, because of the major differences in the pattern of thought of each diverse point of consciousness within the Mind.   And while this great diversity of Mind is necessary in the evolution of Higher Intelligence, diversity can only manifest when each of the opposites are equally developed and manifest within the One Higher Mind.   And this can only be accomplished when each aspect of mind is permitted to evolve within the domain of its thinking and expression of Mind. 

Using the example of Liberals and Conservatives: Each sees the world from a different perspective, because they are polarized to a different aspect or point of consciousness within the Mind of God as patterned in the Tree of Life.  If we portray the costal elites as liberals, they are not only out of touch with what is portrayed as the fly-over areas of the country between the east and west coasts, but they are totally incapable of comprehending the thinking of the more conservatives in rural America.  In our universities where Leftist Cultural-Marxism is the prevailing mindset, those who are portrayed as "snow-flakes" are incapable of hearing or understanding conservative thoughts and solutions.  

In some things, the Liberal solution would be superior to the Conservative solution -- while in other things, the Conservative solution would be superior to the Liberal.  Yet, in all things both the Liberal and Conservative solutions would be greatly flawed because of their one-sided perception and solutions.   The Third-Force Higher Reality that must be developed and matured, is able to draw upon each of the opposite opposing polarities to arrive at a higher solution in all perceptive-positions and solutions.   But, this requires much development of not only each side of the mental-divide, but also the development of the Third-Force Balance that is able to draw from each or both of the conflicting opposites.   Today's conservative may very well lived as a liberal in a previous life of the Soul -- and vice-versa.  Conservative and liberal thinking patterns evolve out of different aspects of mind -- and it is through the interaction of opposites that growth and development is achieved.  Now when you expand this pattern to all realties of the diversity of human opinion and consciousness. the development and integration of the great diversity of the mind of man requires many lifetimes of experience that evolves the Soul to a state of Enlightened Being.  And only when the above is understood within the The Solution to the Enigma, and put into practice through the process of Triangulation - Overcoming The Tower Of Babel Syndrome - The Secret To Mental/Spiritual Growth, Expansion and Soul-Birth, can eventual Wholeness be achieved.    How many lifetimes are required?  That depends upon the level of development of each Soul.   Especially in view of the fact that some people can observe and learn from the flaws and strengths in others, while others remain totally blind to anything but their own partisan thinking.  Further, those who learn to use the power of Triangulation with others (see Using Triangulation - The Laws - The Spiritually Mature Mind Of Man), are able to make rapid developmental progress and achieve Wholeness by embracing and understanding the Natural Laws as they manifest among mankind.  And this is how the Soul who lived as the historical man Jesus evolved through all the stages of development and birth so quickly.  

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 End Times

The Rapture - Armageddon - Entering The Kingdom

 

For over 2000 years -- in every generation -- doomsday prophets have predicted the End Times -- Armageddon -- and the Second Coming.  From pulpits across the world, the Second Coming has been preached -- wherein, believers are taught to wait on the next coming of Jesus, which is imminent.  And thus, what we are confronted with is a grave deception that has alienated the flock of believers from receiving the Promise of the Gospels -- a deception that has robbed them of the opportunity to enter into the Promise of Life.  The Church doctrine that a believer must wait on the Second Coming, is a core dogma that has totally alienated the modern Christian from the Truth and the Promise of the Gospels.  Therefore, the Church itself has inhibited and even blocked the congregation of believers from knowing the Truth of the Promise of the Gospels.  Which provokes the question: Why does the Church promote a counterfeit teaching that robs the people of their spiritual inheritance?  And is this counterfeit teaching intentional?  The Adam Clark Commentary writes of the statement of Paul at 2 Thes 2:3-4 where the commentary states that “[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”.  

What this means is that the Apostle predicts that in the near future, the true religion of Jesus would cease to exist in this world.  In further explanation with regard to this crucial prediction of the Apostle, the Adam Clark Commentary then goes on to provide us a vivid description of Constantine and the formation of his new church: “[Who opposeth and exalteth] He stands against and exalts himself above all divine authority, and above every object of adoration, and every institution, relative to divine worship, sebasma, himself being the source, whence must originate all the doctrines of religion, and all its rites and ceremonies; so that sitting in the temple of God -- having the highest place and authority in the Christian church, he acts as God -- taking upon himself God's titles and attributes, and arrogating to himself the authority that belongs to the Most High” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).   That these events came to pass is well documented from a historical perspective -- i.e., quoting John Wesley: "...that fatal period when the Emperor Constantine called himself a Christian; From this time onward - the Christians had no more of the Spirit of Christ than the heathens...." (John Wesley; Wesley's Works, vol 7, Sermon 89, pp. 26-27).   And while modern non-Catholic Christians will reason that they separated themselves from what is often portrayed as the pagan Church of Rome at the Protestant Reformation, the facts are that so long as they continue to preach the Second Coming from a Catholic mindset and dogmatic perception, they will continue to promote a lie that enslaves the body of believers.  

The analysis of Paul's prediction by the Commentaries is that the church would not only be ruled by over by Satanic forces that dictated every aspect of Christian doctrine, but that Satan would be worshiped by the Christians as God -- i.e., "...having the highest place and authority in the Christian church, he acts as God -- taking upon himself God's titles and attributes, and arrogating to himself the authority that belongs to the Most High”.   And while it is true that many faithful believers, clergy, pastors and religious authorities today have recognized the defilement of the church that took place in the fourth century, what could not be revealed until now was the absolute certainty that, because the Church has never fully recovered from the darkness and corruption that was imposed upon the teachings of the church by the ruthless political despots of the past, essential foundational principles, as well as indispensable elements of New Covenant knowledge of what is constantly referred to in the Bible as the Mysteries of God, is presently absent from the thinking of the body of the faithful believers to this very day.  

If the prediction is true, then the question must be posed: How would the impersonator of God -- "having the highest place and authority in the Christian church" -- inhibit the believers from believing the truth in the Gospels?  The fallen Church teaches believers that they must await the End Times -- but that is not what the Original Gospel taught.  This fact is easily demonstrated:  In the vast majority of the Bible translations, the message presented is part of the Great Deception promoted by the Church.  What is known as Armageddon or the Rapture, has been portrayed in scripture as something to be feared -- whereas, there is another element to the theological equation that is rarely ever mentioned or discussed.  This can be demonstrated by simply examining how we translate Matthew 24:8, where the King James Bible states that Armageddon is the "…beginning of sorrows"; the New Living Translation states it is "…the beginning of the horrors to come"; with the correct and little used interpretation by those who stand on our street corners proclaiming that we should repent being found in the Revised Standard Version where it reads that "…all this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs".

What is portrayed in the above as achieving Wholeness through the process of bringing about the subsequent stages of birth -- which is a condition of body and mind that is absolutely necessary to inherit the Promise of the Gospels.  In the words of that 60’s philosopher Bob Dylan during that time of his life when he was a student of Hebrew Mysticism, when he said: "He who’s not busy being born, is busy dying"!  There are Two Ways -- i.e., what Jesus portrayed as the "narrow path" of TheWay of Life, and the "broad-way" that the vast majority of mankind walks to their own demise.   And if you fail to bring about the next stage of birth -- with the Second Coming and End Times coming within you, while you are still in the physical body -- it will be impossible to accomplish the necessary subsequent stages of birth in the after-life when you pass from this world.  Thus, the satanic forces that have ruled the Church wants you to complacently wait for the End Times to come upon the world -- and by doing so, the Church will remain spiritually impotent. 

When Jesus made reference to the Coming of the Kingdom -- stating that it would never come in the manner that it would be seen in the outer world (Luke 17:20-21) , the reference was made to the event being brought about within the body and mind of the sincere seeker and disciple of TheWay.  From the perspective of the parable of the prodigal son, the people in this life in this world are portrayed as the dead -- i.e., “Another disciple said to him, Lord, first let me go and bury my father. But Jesus told him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead” (Matt 8:21-22).  And the true resurrection of the dead, is the return of the prodigal son to the Edenic Kingdom.  And this is why Paul wrote: "Therefore he says, Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light" (Eph 5:14).  And this is why Paul admits that he has not yet achieved the resurrection: "I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to Him in His death, so that I may somehow attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been perfected, but I press on..." (Phil: 10-12).  The Resurrection is an allegorical portrayal of the Final Birth -- i.e., the End Times, aka Armageddon -- and unless you are resurrected from the dead while still in the physical body, this resurrection cannot be achieved after you physically die. 

The Bible continually warns us that the path or the second-birth and entrance into the Kingdom is not easy.   The strife of the inner war within ourselves as embodied in the symbols of Armageddon is seen in the words: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ). Thus, in the same way that a woman travails in labor to bring a child into this world, we must ourselves endure the "…many tribulations" of spiritual labor to be born into the Kingdom of God.   Since the Kingdom is within us, and Armageddon is therefore not an historical or outward event -- but more factually, a spiritual event in the life of the disciple in search of Truth -- we must then totally re-evaluate everything we think we know about both the Gospel Message, and the life we are presently living.   In fully comprehending these biblical statements in relation to the whole purpose of the teachings of TheWay, let us again examine the definitive statement which conveys to us the very essence of the Gospel -- and especially the Revelation of John: "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14-15 NKJ). 

If the text of the Revelation represented the end of the world, as is commonly believed by the majority of Christians today, then we must pose the question: Why are those who remain outside the city portrayed as "dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie"?  Armageddon, then, indicates the disciples personal tribulation described as the "pangs of birth", as he endeavors to overcome his own lower carnal nature through the crucifixion of what is symbolized by the flesh, in order that he can possess the Knowledge of the fruit of the Tree of Life, transcend the natural barriers of this world, and "enter through the [INNER] gates into the city"Thereby fulfilling the statement: "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28). 

With respect to when the Kingdom would come, Peter told the people: ”looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Pet 3:12).  Which provokes the question: How could the believers in that time-frame hasten or speed up the coming of the Kingdom, if it was coming externally in the outer world?  And if Peter was truly telling the people in the first century that they had the ability to hasten and speed up the coming of the Kingdom, then either the disciples were wrong -- they were lying to the people -- or the body of believers outside of the original Ebionite Nazirene Community simply do not understand the core Gospel teachings (see Original Gospel Teachings).  That the believer is able to "hasten" or speed up the Coming of the Kingdom is proclaimed in The Second Epistle of Clement who was the disciple of Peter, when he wrote to a first century congregation: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   What Clement -- the disciple of Peter who is claimed by the Church as the fourth pope in succession of Peter -- is stating in accord with the Original teachings is that when the seeker/believer brings this condition about within their own Mind and Being, that the predicted and expected Kingdom will come within them as promised -- as stated in Jesus' teachings on the Key of Knowledge (see The Third Fatal Mistake - Not Proving The Truth).

It is important to recognize that when Clement wrote the above in his Epistle to a congregation of Christians, he did so in the expectation that the people to whom he was writing would understand the great truths he was presenting to them.   That the Kingdom or End Times would, and could only come, when "...two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   And the fact that this statement that has been preserved in the Gospel of Thomas, and was also contained in a first century Epistle from an elder to a congregation of believers in that time-frame, could not be contained and understood in a letter or epistle to a congregation today, is merely one example of the fact that the dogma and thinking of the modern Church has virtually nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus known as TheWay (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma ).   Which provokes the question: Has the requirements to enter the Kingdom changed in order to accommodate the dogmatic corruption of the Church?   Has Truth and Higher Spiritual Reality been discarded and thrown away, because the Church threw this body of essential Knowledge pertaining to the Coming of the Kingdom away?   Or, does modern Christians dwell in a self-imposed Diaspora of abject Spiritual Ignorance which was brought about by the massive corruption of the scriptures (see BibleCorruption.com ), and the suppression of the body of essential knowledge that is necessary to restore the lost prodigal son to his rightly place in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.

Jesus condemned the Pharisees as "blind guides", who in their carnal interpretation of the scriptures had thrown away the Key of Knowledge, because they looked outwardly for what only can come within the body and mind of each person individually.   Resulting in the fact that in being duped into waiting for the Kingdom to come outwardly, instead of seeking it within, the congregation of believers remain "outside the gates of the city" with the "dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie".   But when it is realized that the lie that is portrayed -- i.e., "...whoever loves and practices a lie", is in fact the predictions of the doomsday prophets who preach from the pulpits of the Churches that the End Times is imminent, and is coming outwardly, then the "lie" that is being referenced, is the lie that is being preached by the blind guides who presently lead the Church.   And it is this lie that is being preached in the pulpits of the Churches, that is responsible for the body of believers being exiled in a spiritual diaspora "outside the gates of the city".  

While the modern Christians, like the Jews before them who threw away the Key of Knowledge, look for the Kingdom to come outwardly upon the earth, the Gospel itself states that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth, because it is within you -- and it is therein that you must seek it: "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21).   If the words of Jesus are true -- and the Kingdom is within you -- then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must the Kingdom be entered?   The answer is the proper application of the Key of Knowledge by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being -- i.e., "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52).  Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Pharisees, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"?   Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"!   And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?"   That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom -- or, as personified in the Revelation in the term "...the gates of the city" -- is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV).  Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find -- within himself.

In the Bible translation known as The Message, the above reality of Jesus' words with respect to the usage of the Key of Knowledge is portrayed in true clarity.   In this translation when Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him and said: "If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you" (John 8:31-32 TheMessage) -- and once again, neither Christian or Jew who have thrown away the Key of Knowledge can understand these words which are of the utmost importance.   Jesus didn't say that they would believe the truth -- or that they would discern what they believed would be dogmatic truth out of the scriptures or some book written by other men -- but rather, Jesus conveyed to them that if they follow in TheWay, that they "...will experience for yourselves the truth, ...and it is this SELF-EXPERIENCED TRUTH that...will free you" from the error and ignorance that consumes the people of this world -- and especially the blind guides who portray themselves as rabbis,  teachers, clergy, religious leaders and authorities.     

Taking the above one step further, I fully realize that many Bible translations attempt to further deceive the reader, and simply refuse to interpret Luke 17:21 correctly.   In analysis of this great biblical controversy, Robertson’s Word Pictures of the New Testament writes: “What Jesus says to the Pharisees is that they, as others, are to look for the kingdom of God within themselves, not in outward displays and supernatural manifestations. It is not a localized display ‘Here’ or ‘There.’ It is in this sense that in Luke 11:20 Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God as ‘come upon you,’ speaking to Pharisees”.   The article then goes on to add that the only other instance of the Greek word “entos” being used in the New Testament, is at Matthew 23:26, where the Pharisees are told to clean “the inside of the cup”.   Moreover, the Wescott and Hort Greek text, as well as most other authorities, render the translation of this word: “inside of you is”.   Which means that the original teachings of TheWay was a system whereby the seeker/disciple takes the yoke of Messiah/Christ upon themselves -- picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay -- which enables the disciple to enter through the "narrow gate" and dwell in the Kingdom, while still physically alive in the body -- overcoming the division of heaven and earth within the person -- i.e., the Lord commanded his followers to "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NIV).    Because the Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, and adopted pagan dogmatic doctrines of belief, the Christian world sits idly complacent on the side of the "broad-way  ...that leads to destruction" -- giving lip service and worshiping their brother, that they must themselves imitate, in order to enter into Life.    And it was for this reason that the Adam Clark Commentary stated that if the original Gospel portrayal of the historical man Jesus was correct, that "...the whole Christian system is vain and baseless"!!! (see The Ten Words).   

If a creditable source makes a prediction, and that prediction fails to materialize, then the rational mind begins to question the reliability of the source.   In this respect, the world has yet to hear a doomsday prophet openly warn the people that history has proven each and every one of his peers who professed the same divine vision as he does to be in error.   Generation after generation of prophesiers have continually predicted the end of the world in their own lifetime, and yet it is expected that the faithful flock continue to blindly believe in a countless number of false predictions.  The scriptures themselves condemn the visions of every generation of doomsday prophets where it states: ”when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously” (Deut 18:22 RSV).  

Once this truth is established in our minds, how, then, do we justify the advice and prediction of the Apostle Paul when he wrote that even men who have wives should live as if they were not married, because the time was so short till the end: ”What I mean, brothers", writes Paul, ”is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they had none” (1 Cor 7:29 NIV).  Bible commentaries with reluctance point out the Paul's End Times prediction was in error -- but was it?   From the perspective of the Original Gospel Teachings, Paul's prediction was correct -- and as stated by Clement where he wrote of Jesus' teachings: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   Thus, the Bible commentaries are wrong, and Paul was correct in his prediction of that "...the time is short" for those who have fulfilled the requirement set forth by Jesus when he replied to the man asking when the Kingdom would come and said, when "...two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”. 

If the scriptures are God’s word, and are true, then the generations of Christians in the past who have interpreted the sacred books have time and again been in error.   Why?   Fundamentally, because the carnal mind is incapable of understanding the true meaning of Armageddon and the second coming of Christ.   The Kingdom is not of this world -- its doors have always been open to righteous men, and the time for us to enter the Kingdom is now.   As stated in the Gospel of Philip: "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die"    Therefore, it is impossible to fulfill the requirements of the Gospels without first fulfilling the teaching of Jesus when he stated: "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom." (see The Gospel Enigma That Modern Christians Can't Comprehend ).  And the fact that a variation of this teaching is contained in a first-century Epistle to a congregation of believers -- and could not be understood today -- demonstrates that the modern Christian has virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel Teachings

 

Proper Scripture Interpretation

@@@

To read the scriptures from a Linear/Historical perspective -- thereby inhibiting Higher Development of the Mind -- can rightly be portrayed as spiritual death.  Why?  As explored in the article and the only first century eyewitness account, The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com , the sole purpose of the Gospels is to bring about and nurture the development and transformation of the mind of the seeker.  Thereby fulfilling the foundation of the New Covenant: "'And they shall all be taught by God'" (John 6:45).  And without the development of the Intuitive Spheres of Mind which enables the person to achieve Wholeness (see Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness ), the person remains alienated from both their True-Self, and the Source of Truth and Knowledge that exists at the Core and Essence of their Mind and Being.

While the Christians, like the Jews before them who threw away the Key of Knowledge, look for the Kingdom to come outwardly upon the earth, the Gospel itself states that the Kingdom will never come upon the earth, because it is within you -- and it is therein that you must seek it: "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21).   If the words of Jesus are true -- and the Kingdom is within you -- then the question that Christians should be asking, is how must the Kingdom be entered?   The answer is the proper application of the Key of Knowledge by turning the scriptures within your own mind and being -- i.e., "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52).  Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Pharisees, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"?   Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"!   And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?"   In further clarification, the TEV version of the this verse states: “How terrible for you teachers of the Law! You have kept the key that opens the door to the house of knowledge; you yourselves will not go in, and you stop those who are trying to go in!” (Luke 11:52 TEV).  Thus, the scriptures when properly used, have the ability to "open the [inner] door to the House of Knowledge" -- and their outward linear interpretations whereby they seek the Kingdom to come outwardly (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes ),  inhibits believers from "going in [the Hose of Knowledge]" -- and by teaching the people their outward interpretations, they inhibited the community of believers from entering the Hose of Knowledge.  

That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom, is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV).  Which means that the scriptures cannot be read in the traditional Linear and Historical perspective, because they are designed to develop the Inward looking Intuitive spheres of mind that has the ability to tap into an Inner Source of Truth and Knowledge. 

When you apply the Key of Knowledge to the scriptures -- turning them within your own mind and being -- you begin to understand that what is presented in the scriptures is a quasi-historical facade that allegorically presents the blueprint of your own mind -- presenting to you the Forces and Laws of Consciousness.  What is personified as twelve (12) disciples, is not men who were followers of Jesus -- but rather, the twelve spheres of mind portrayed in the pattern of the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).  Paul portrayed the scriptures as the "letter that killeth" (2 Cor 3:6) which was comprised of allegory built upon "Jewish fables" (Titus 1:14).  Thus, in the Zohar which is the foundational writing of Jewish Mysticism it warns with respect to the Torah: “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”.   With regard to reading the narrative as actual historical events in the manner of the Fundamentalist, or to ignore the meaning of the symbolism in the manner of the skeptics and critics, the Church Father Origen wrote: “What man of sense will agree with the statement that the first, second and third days in which the evening is named and the morning, were without sun, moon and stars, and the first day without a heaven. What man is found such an idiot as to suppose that God planted trees in paradise in Eden, like a husbandman, and planted therein the tree of life, perceptible to the eyes and senses, which gave life to the eater thereof; and another tree which gave to the eater thereof a knowledge of good and evil? I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed” (Origen - Huet., Prigeniana, 167 Franck, p. 142). 

These great truths are 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”.   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.”.  That the Jew who remained of a natural carnal mindset could not see beyond the symbols of the allegory, and their eyes and hearts were hardened so they could not comprehend the true meaning of the scriptures, is readily understood where Paul states that “their minds were blinded” -- further stating, “for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament… even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart” (2 Cor 3:14-15).     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”  In view of the fact that Jesus himself taught that the Kingdom of God is within us (Luke 17:20-21), that the scriptures were in fact a blueprint of man’s own mind begins to reveal a reality that few today are even prepared to comprehend -- to their own detriment.  

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 person's 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 (see Anamnesis - The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#Innate, the modern Christian world has virtually nothing in common with the purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings. 

The scriptures contain allegorical absurdities and historical untruths and fabrications, because the catalysts are necessary to block the domination of the Linear spheres of mind, and develop the Intuitive spheres in order to enable them to employ the process of Anamnesis, and tap into the Inner Source of Truth and Knowledge.  When you attempt to override the catalysts, and read the scriptures either from a Linear perspective, or an interpretation brought from without, then you negate the catalysts and atrophie the Intuitive spheres of mind that have the capacity to tap into the Inner Source of Truth and receive the Higher Knowledge or Divine Manna that is the Intellectual Nourishment that can only be imparted to sincere seekers who achieve their own Wholeness of Mind and Being.  

 

Thus, it is written: "Then they returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, which is near the city, a Sabbath day’s journey away. When they arrived, they went to the upper room" (Acts 1:12-13).   The name Jerusalem indicates "division overcome".  The Mount of Olives is representing the Anointing Oil from an elevated place of Higher Consciousness.  The Sabbath Day's Journey portrays Completion (see The Spiritual Sabbath).  And even more important is their coming together in what is allegorically portrayed as In The House -- and they then "went to the upper room" -- indicating the twelve coming together In The House in Oneness and Wholeness, and existing on a Higher  Plane of Consciousness.   And what is being allegorically portrayed is the Condition of Body and Mind that each person must achieve in order to have the Kingdom come within you.

Dogs And Swine: One of the most important of of allegorical symbols is totally ignored by students of the Gospels -- an example being:  "Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles" (Acts 1:26).  The spiritual meaning of the Gospels and the esoteric knowledge of TheWay could not be given to those people whose lower animal nature can be portrayed as dogs and swine -- i.e., "Never give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls before pigs. Otherwise, they will trample them with their feet and then turn around and attack you" (Mat 7:6 ISV).   Of the meaning of this passage, Gill's Exposition of the Bible states: "Here the phrase is used in a metaphorical sense; and is generally understood of not delivering or communicating the holy word of God, and the truths of the Gospel, comparable to pearls, or the ordinances of it, to persons notoriously vile and sinful: to men, who being violent and furious persecutors, and impudent blasphemers, are compared to 'dogs'; or to such, who are scandalously vile, impure in their lives and conversations, and are therefore compared to swine"   And this commandment to not reveal the esoteric knowledge of the Gospel, is confirmed in the Homilies of Peter's disciple Clement were Peter is quoted as stating: “We remember that our Lord and teacher, as commanding, said to us, guard the mysteries for me, and the sons of my house. Wherefore also he explained to his disciples, privately, the mysteries of the kingdoms of the heavens.”   With respect to dogs: They will take food (knowledge) from any hand that feeds them -- wherein, the Children of the Kingdom are commanded to seek only The True Prophet.   Dogs will eat their own vomit.   Thus, those people whose consciousness can be portrayed as a dog, are consumed with the faux-knowledge of this world, and are incapable of comprehending what is Holy.  Of those people whose consciousness can be portrayed as dogs and swine the Apostle Peter stated: "Of them the proverbs are true: 'A dog returns to its vomit, and, A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud'" (2 Peter 2:22). 

The Jew: In the same way that dogs and swine are symbols that portray human character failings, when a Jew is portrayed in the scriptures, what is being portrayed is one who has received the Law of God, but continues to observe it outwardly in ritual and tradition -- and because such a person lacks the necessary development of mind, is only able to utilize a fragment of their true potential of mind -- which fragmented mind, causes them to be spiritually disenfranchised.  Those who read the biblical accounts in the manner of a history book -- i.e., interpreting the twelve disciples as men, unable to understand that they allegorically portray the twelve spheres of mind as portrayed in the diagram of the Tree of Life -- thereby throwing away the Key of Knowledge in their carnal interpretations -- as stated by Eusebius in his Ecclestical History where he writes that: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees”.  

The Transformation Of The Jew: The death of Judas -- i.e., the Jew -- is not the personification of a person named Judas -- but rather, the transformation of what is represented in the portrayal of consciousness in the symbol of the Jew.  In the same way that a dog or swine portrays human consciousness that is incapable of receiving and comprehending the Soul's Higher Reality, so too is the Jew the symbol of a person incapable of understanding and applying the Law of God in the way it must be applied, in order to bring about the deepening and expansion of mind necessary to comprehend man's higher Soul-Reality.   The Jew, then, is a symbol indicating that aspect of mind (or such a person ) that looks outwardly for the Kingdom -- applying both the scriptures and the Law of God outwardly --  instead of Inwardly -- and thus, is one who throws away the Key of Knowledge.   With respect to the Jews and their outward interpretation of the scriptures Jesus said: "How terrible it will be for you experts in religious law! For you hide the key to knowledge from the people. You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves, and you prevent others from entering" (Luke 11:52).  Thus, in understanding these words spoken to the Pharisees, the questions must be asked: How did the Pharisees and Jewish authorities "...hide the key to knowledge from the people"?   Why did Jesus condemn the leaders of the Jews for failing to enter the Kingdom themselves? -- i.e., "...You don't enter the Kingdom yourselves"!   As Jews who are too carnal to understand the scriptures, they look for the Kingdom to come outwardly -- failing to understand that the Kingdom can only come within you.  And how did the religious leaders of the Jews "...prevent others from entering?"   That the primary objective of the Gospel is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Kingdom that is within them, is further demonstrated in Jesus' condemnation of the blind religious leaders as seen in the words: "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to" (Matt 23:13 NIV).  Which means that the Kingdom of God is not something that will come if we wait for it -- but rather, it is a reality which man must seek and find -- within himself.   The early Gentile followers of Jesus rejected the Jews as blind guides leading the people in the wrong outward direction -- and therefore, their god the Jews worshiped was personified as the Devil -- i.e., "Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it" (John 8:43-44).   And from an Essene and Ebionite perspective, the Jews were the epitome of abject spiritual failure and what not to be with respect to the necessary transformation into Spiritual Israel.  

Using The Scriptures As The Key Of Knowledge: To understand the wisdom expressed by Peter in the words: "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation" (1 Peter 1:20), you must understand Peter's explanation provided in the Homilies of his disciple Clement in the words: "...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"

Churches, Bible Study Groups, Commentaries and Clergy all promote biblical interpretations -- and yet, the Apostle Peter states that taking these interpretations from a source outside of one's self -- i.e., understood in accord with "an extraneous sense, which you have brought from without" -- should not be done.  And it is ultra-important to understand why this common religious practice is prohibited by New Covenant Teachings.   Because the whole of the scriptures are an allegorical presentation using and employing catalysts designed to connect the outer physical consciousness of the reader, with their pre-existing inner soul and spiritual consciousness within them -- which when rightly understood, is the very essence of the process of anamnesis (see The Gospels Embody The Principles Of Anamnesis http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org#Anamnesis ). Therefore, when you attempt to learn the meaning of the scriptures from someone else, or a Bible interpretation group, authority or Church, you negate the catalysts and symbols that are contained in the allegorical 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 (see The True Prophet http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TrueProphet ) -- that dwells within the very Core of each of our Consciousness.

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."  Thus, what has been presented is the very essence of the New Covenant Teachings, as seen where it is written: "It is written in the Prophets: 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me" (John 6:45).  One listens to the Father by keeping the Commandmenst, fulfilling the Law within themselves, and becoming the "good ground" in which the Seed has been planted (see The Sower And The Seed). 

With respect to learning ONLY from the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God) where Peter is quoted in the Homilies of Clement that it is a sin to seek out any other teacher than the True Prophet -- as seen in the words where Baptism is portrayed as the necessary "wedding garment": "But the ways in which this garment may be spotted are these: If any one withdraw from God the Father and Creator of all, receiving another teacher besides Christ, who alone is the faithful and True Prophet" (see Baptism As A Divine Marriage).  Which is why Peter states: "if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other".  And this is confirmed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed where the statement is made: “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13 KJV) -- which means that those who do not refine their body and mind, are  "...those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative" -- while those who are portrayed as the "good ground", are those who "...He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge".   Because they read and apply the scriptures outwardly -- instead of using them as the Key of Knowledge -- and thus, 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 (see The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).

Relying upon human interpretation of the scriptures is the reason why Paul cautioned Titus to “Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned” (Titus 3:10-11 NIV). The Greek meaning of the word divisive is “one who promotes a sect”.  Which means that all the sects and Churches who promote a Bible interpretation and/or commentary, is under the control of what can be portrayed as the Satanic forces of the Anti-Christ.   Writing about schisms and divisions, the Church Father Turtillian writes: “On this point, however, we dwell no longer, since it is the same Paul who, in his Epistle to the Galatians, counts 'heresies' among 'the sins of the flesh,' who also intimates to Titus, that 'a man who is a heretic' must be 'rejected after the first admonition,' on the ground that 'he that is such is perverted, and committeth sin, as a self-condemned man.' Indeed, in almost every epistle, when enjoining on us (the duty) of avoiding false doctrines, he sharply condemns heresies. Of these the practical effects are false doctrines, called in Greek heresies, a word used in the sense of that choice which a man makes when he either teaches them (to others) or takes up with them (for himself). For this reason it is that he calls the heretic self-condemned, because he has himself chosen that for which he is condemned”.  In the gospel preached by Paul, heresy is considered a “sin of the flesh”, because schisms and divisions are the result of natural man clinging to ideas of a carnal nature.

The proper use of the scriptures for their intended purpose of development of mind and the manifestation of spirit, is dependent upon the proper understanding of human consciousness as an expression of Soul-Consciousness.  Which provokes the proverbial question: 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?   When rightly understood, 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.   While the English language is spiritually dead, Jńāna in Sanskrit means "knowledge" -- but, like the Greek word Gnosis, the word Jńāna portrays Knowledge acquired through Meditation -- i.e., looking within one's own mind at a deeper level.   And while this was the basis of the original Gospel teachings, it was removed by the Roman Church. 

This reality of the existence of a deeper level of consciousness and an inner Source of Knowledge is portrayed in the statement by the Church Father Origen on using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge where he wrote: “But all the narrative portion [of the scriptures], relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever, what else can they be supposed to be, save the forms and figures of hidden and sacred things? As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn, the consequence is that they never begin to have knowledge".   It is important to take note of Origen's statement that "...As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn" -- where reference is being made to an Inner Source of Knowledge that mankind possesses, even before they even begin to learn in the traditional outward manner.   Further, Origen correctly states with respect to the (allegorical) text of the scriptures that "...all the narrative portion [of the scriptures], relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever", do not at all pertain to historical accounts of man's more distant past -- but rather, are allegorical presentations of the Forces and Laws that are presently working within man's own mind and being.   Why?   How could Origen who was called the prince of Christian learning second only to the Apostles themselves, state that the historical interpretation of the scriptures is "worthless"?  And that what is presented in the written text as marriages, the begetting of children, and the many various wars and battles are not at all historical -- but rather, an allegorical portrayal of the Forces and Laws working within one's own mind and being? 

Paul correctly portrayed the written text and narrative of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).   Why?   Because the literal text of the scriptures is a quasi-historical facade that is necessary for the very limited instruction of the immature seeker -- with the true spiritual meaning remaining preserved and concealed beneath the garb of allegory (see An Inconvenient Truth).   The Church Father Origen explained that “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).   Further explaining in De Principiis 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 that the carnal mind of both the blind believer, as well as the skeptic critic, both attempt to ignore these important inconsistencies (see Inconsistencies Purposely Written Into Body Of Scriptural Text), and attempt to read the scriptures as an historical account, inhibits them from perceiving and understanding the great truths that lie concealed beneath the allegorical texts.    

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 same way that Paul was forced (because of the spiritual immaturity of the congregation of believers he taught) to limit his teachings to a quasi-historical "testimony" of  "...Jesus and him crucified" -- warning that even if it were possible to convey to these baptized and confirmed Christians anything beyond what Paul portrayed as the "milk" of the Gospel which is necessary for babes in Christ who would reject the higher spiritual knowledge and teachings as utter "foolishness" if he was to openly present the Truth to them -- the authors of the scriptures had no other choice than to utilize this entry-level "milk" designed for spiritually immature Christians in the literal presentation of the scriptures.   

If what Paul and the other Gospel Authors stated is true, and there exist higher realities and dimensions of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel ) -- and by virtue of the immaturity of the faith-based believers brought about by an embryonic condition of mind which Paul portrayed as the "natural" mind of man -- and the limitations of this embryonic condition of mind even inhibited Jesus from conveying the true meaning of the scriptures, and the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom to all but his inner core of disciples (see In The House - Taught In Parables) -- which means that the biblical authors were therefore powerless to explain in any detail and depth many of the most important Gospel teachings and concepts in the literal text of the New Testament -- then the spiritually mature author's of the scriptures who were themselves enlightened to these higher realities, remained virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do's and don'ts -- so that the faith-based believers will be in a position where they will be better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.   To totally ignore these do's and don'ts, without knowing the consequence of one's choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded.   The Law is that you, as a sincere seeker, can never know any greater level of Truth, than you are willing to live and manifest in word, thought, desire and deed -- which means that modern mainstream liberal Christianity is virtually worthless.

Christians maintain that they are saved by faith totally apart from their actions and works -- and their salvation is guaranteed from the moment they accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.   But is this the original teachings of Jesus?   The Flawed Doctrine Of Perpetual Redemption totally ignores the many statements by Paul where he warns: "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).   Why did Paul make such a statement?   Because the original Gospel teachings in their original form was one of spiritual transformation -- a process that would evolve the mind of the seeker/disciple from their embryonic infantile condition, to that of higher spiritual maturity and Wholeness.  Those who reject these teachings and fall back into the thinking and lifestyle of this world -- who willfully sin after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel message -- are not only unbelievers and apostates to the teachings of the Gospels, but in Paul's words these counterfeit believers crucify the Son of God afresh.  And, in total opposition to what is preached in the modern Churches, Paul warns that "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries."   These, and other such spiritual concepts, were totally unacceptable to the fourth century heathen Church of Rome -- and while these few passages continue to exist, the scriptures were corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ) in order to make the Gospels support the doctrines of a series of Roman Emperors who ruled over the Church from the fourth century onward.     That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus -- to the degree that when it is proven that the fourth century Church even edited and corrupted the very words of God spoken to man (see http://TheTenWords.com ) -- means that until the Church itself repents of this great sin against the Holy Spirit, they will remain under a cloud of ignorance in an exiled state in a Spiritual Diaspora.   What does Paul, the Apostle of faith say?   To the Romans he warns: "Do not be arrogant, but be afraid.  For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.  Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off" (Rom 11:20-22 NIV).    Because the fourth-century Christians entered into a covenant with Pagan Rome -- installing the emperor who was not even baptized, as the head of the Church -- and in a state of absolute arrogance, hunted down and murdered all sincere spiritual Christians and original Ebionite Nazirenes who did not accept the religious doctrines of the emperor -- even editing and corrupting the very words of God spoken to mankind -- the Church has not only been "cut off" -- but the Christians themselves dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora under the cloud of spiritual ignorance. 

I always found it truly amazing that readers of the scriptures could read the words of Paul where he states that the "natural" mind of the Christians who he had himself taught, would reject the truths pertaining to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter "foolishness" -- portraying himself as an "ambassador in bonds" who was unable to speak plainly.   And from this perspective, the best that Paul could do for those who he portrayed as entry-level Christians who were "babes in Christ", was to provide them a series of do's and don'ts that would assist them in evolving through the stages of spiritual immaturity that made it impossible for them to comprehend the True Gospel Meaning and Objectives.   And then, these same people who call themselves believers, ignore the very core Gospel teachings to their own demise (see The Lie).

The objective of the Gospel is to prepare the seeker to open the Inner "narrow gate" that provides entrance into the Inner Kingdom where the person is then able to be taught and enlightened by the Anointing of the True Prophet (aka Logos/Son of God) that exists at the Core of all the prodigal sons and daughters. But the Church instead created man-made doctrines that attempt to explain what the unenlightened mind of carnal men cannot comprehend.

One of the greatest errors of the later Gentile-Church which portrayed itself as Orthodox, was made when they attached their religion to the Old Testament of the Jews -- portraying the Jews as the forerunner of the Church.  Why did the Church do this?   To provide the Church with a false and counterfeit facade of authenticity -- but what is known as Replacement Theology has been one of the primary causes of the demise of Christianity.  The Chosen People are representative of Spiritual Israel -- whereas the Jews as personified in the Pharisees and Sadducees were representative of counterfeit Israel -- i.e., the offspring of the Devil.   The authors of the Gospels were representative of Spiritual Israel, who were the people of the New Covenant.  As explored in the article, The Original Gospel Teachings, the New Covenant Gospel teachings emerged out of the bedrock of the Essenes -- and the Jews were personified as the Sons of Darkness.   The Jews were the carnal impostors who were shackled by the Old Covenant and the literal Law of Moses.   When the Gospel account of Jesus spoke of fulfilling the tenets of the Old Testament, he was referring to the fact that the Old Testament is an allegorical portrayal of the Laws that must be fulfilled within the seeker/disciples own mind and being in order for the lost prodigal sons to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom of origination.  All reference to a coming Anointed One (Messiah/Christ), portray the Anointing of the Mind of the Seeker/Disciple who fulfills the (allegorical) Law within themselves.  Where the Jews as counterfeit Israel sacrificed animals in the temple of this world made with the hands of man, Spiritual Israel transforms the lower animal nature of the body and mind into the Living Temple that enables the seeker/disciple to be taught directly by the Indwelling Logos (see The Gospels And The PreExistent Soul That Evolves To Perfection In Many Lifetimes ).  All the references to the building of the temple and the sacrifice of animals, is an allegorical portrayal of what must be accomplished within the body and mind of the Disciple of TheWay.  And only when the necessary Wholeness embodied in the term Spiritual Israel is brought about through the fulfillment of the Royal Law within you, can the Kingdom come within the mind and body of the Disciple of TheWay.   And this is why the Gospel account of Jesus stated: "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).  

One of the problems that confront the people of the simple faith is seen in the lack of continuity between the Old and New Testaments. The fact that those who make our Bibles have failed to translate the Greek meaning of the word Pentecost into English, as is done with the word Christ and many other such words, is merely representative of our refusal to embrace the Word of God as portrayed in the manifestation and fulfillment of the Law. The Thayer’s Lexicon defines the meaning of the Greek word pentekoste as “the fiftieth day”; and says that it is “the second of the three great Jewish feasts, celebrated at Jerusalem yearly, the seventh week after the Passover, in grateful recognition of the completed harvest”. The completed harvest is the spiritual birth into the Kingdom by the disciple.

Under the heading of Seven, the Nelson’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary tells us it is “A sacred number to the ancient Hebrew people. The word is used often in the Bible to symbolize perfection, fullness, abundance, rest, and completion”. That the celebration of Pentecost, or the Feast of weeks, equates to the first day following the period of seven times seven, in addition to all the other sacred symbols and numbers conveyed in this account, conveys to the disciple a number of great truths that he must perceive in relation to the Law, in order to bring about the Anointing of the Light -- and it is this understanding that is conveyed in the spiritual understanding of the “harvest”.

To the modern Bible reader, the word Pentecost represents an historical event – whereas, to the spiritual seeker, the meaning of Pentecost conveys a spiritual event that they must understand in order to bring that condition of consciousness about in the own lives.  In the same way that everything in this world is controlled by God’s Laws, so too is the workings of our mind and being in relation to the division of personalities, the soul and spiritual natures, and what Jesus called the inner Kingdom.  Like a house, these divisions and levels of consciousness exist as rooms and floors under the domain of a single unit or roof.  In the same way that a room or floor in a dwelling is separated by walls and levels, these walls of separation within our own consciousness are maintained by laws -- God’s Laws -- and these Laws are portrayed to us in the garb of history in the scriptures.

Those people who believe that the Book of Acts is making reference to a people called Jews -- or that the twelve historical men were present in an upper room of a physical house -- or that this event took place seven weeks and one day after the Passover -- and do not relate these symbols to a condition of mind that is necessary to receive the Anointing of the Holy Spirit -- simply do not possess the spiritual eyes and ears to perceive the true reality of the scriptures.  In what appears to be an historical event that is virtually meaningless in the life of the people of the simple faith, the disciple who has become spiritual looks beyond the veil of the narrative, and perceives the promise of the New Covenant manifest -- as seen in the words of Peter:this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’” (Acts 2:14-21 NIV).

What Peter is stating is that this is the second coming of Christ -- not in the outer world as Jews and modern Christians look for it -- but within the mind of the sincere seekers "...who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28 NKJ).   Or, in the words of the Gospel of Philip: "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die".  All the End Times prophecies that Jews and Christians have spent their lives looking for outwardly, can only come within them -- and only within those who achieve Wholeness and Completion.  It is impossible to understand what is allegorically presented in the End Times prophecies and the account in the upper room in the Book of Acts, without understanding the cause of the Tower of Babel Syndrome, and the reality of Wholeness of Mind and Being.   On the above fulfillment of the prophecy of Joel and the End Times, it is stated in the Book of Acts: "When the day of Pentecost came, the believers were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like a mighty rushing wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw tongues like flames of a fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. And when this sound rang out, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking his own language" (Acts 2:1-6).       

To understand even what the account is portraying, I will quote from The Mental Barrier:

 

There exists a Natural Mental Barrier between the person you are in this world and your own Higher Mind or Soul-Self -- and when the Sacred Language of the scriptures is understood, one of the primary keys to overcoming this Inner Natural Barrier is allegorically portrayed in the account of the Tower of Babel.  And while the linear-Fundamentalist person will read this account as if the LORD inhibited the people from building the Tower of Babel by confusing their language, a wise reader of the scriptures will immediately recognize that just the opposite is true.   When the wisdom to Know Thyself is expressed, what is portrayed is the Knowledge of our Unknown Inner Soul-Self that is our True Source of Being.  The Gospel of Thomas declares: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".  Which provokes the question: What Self is being made reference to?  And just as important is the statement: Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..." (Gospel of Thomas).   Therefore, if you begin to understand what you see as you gaze out at the world around you, the enigmatic reality of your own Self will begin to unfold before your very eyes.  And not only will you begin to understand and fulfill the adage to Know Thyself, but as the genus of the Original Gospels begin to become revealed, all that is presently hidden from you will begin to "...become plain to you...".   

In his effort to build the Tower in the allegorical account of the Tower of Babel, man was attempting to bridge the divide between the Heavenly and the Earthly -- but this could not be accomplished so long as he was using only earthly materials to bridge the gap.  Further, what is allegorically portrayed as the one language of man, is representative of a single perspective of mind. Thus it states in the allegorical account: “Now the whole world had one language and a common speech… But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. The LORD said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other’” (Gen 11:1-7 NIV).   The Tower that bridges the gap between the Heavenly and Earthly could not be built solely upon the consciousness of the earth -- and neither could it be built on the basis of what is portrayed as one earthly language, because of the inherent limitations of Human Consciousness.  In the allegorical account, the division of many languages was necessary to portray the true human condition of mind -- and it is this human condition that is necessary to initiate the process of the expansion and deepening of Mind that would make it possible to bring about a condition of Anointed Enlightenment -- which is necessary to build an Inner Bridge spanning the Natural Barrier between your own earthly-self and heavenly-self within you.   And what is initially confusing, is the diverse and expansive divisions of mind as explored at The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind -- which in its most divided expression of the Mind as patterned in the Tree of Life, is representative of 144,000 points of Consciousness.   And in the The Solution, which opens the Narrow Gate where Triangulation - Overcoming The Tower Of Babel Syndrome - The Secret To Mental/Spiritual Growth, Expansion and Soul-Birth can be brought about, only then can the Bridge over the Divide of the Natural Barrier between the Earthly and Heavenly be built.          

The mind is comprised of virtually countless points of consciousness -- each functioning from a different area of mind -- i.e., left or right hemisphere -- lower or upper areas of mind -- and these points of consciousness can be portrayed as the network of dendrites that provide mankind with a great diversity of manifest thought.  And when rightly understood, this network of dendrites or points of consciousness that forms human intellect is presented to us in the Gospel of Thomas when the disciples posed the question to Jesus: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"  Of ultra importance to understand is why the disciples portrayed themselves as "children"?   Meaning, you must become a child of the next level of subsequent stages of birth.  And while faith-based Christians don't understand the teaching, this is the meaning of the statement: "Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it” (Mark 10:15).  Which is why Jesus addressed his disciples as children in the words: "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God" (NIV).   The disciples being children of the Kingdom -- i.e., Ebionites being a "poor one" to the ways, thinking and lifestyle that makes people rich in the ways of this world -- which is portrayed by Jesus as the broad-way of self-destruction.  And in confirmation of achieving this next stage of birth that enables them to gain entrance into the Inner 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."

The mind of man is comprised of a virtually countless number of dendrites or points of consciousness that perceive and understand the world and self from a different and sometimes opposite perspective of reality.  Therefore, overcoming the Great Divide between the person you are in this world, with your True-Self that you are an expression of, can only be accomplished when your own POTENTIAL 144,000 points of Consciousness as positioned in the pattern of mind of the Tree of Life, that for the most part remain latently undeveloped -- each allegorically portrayed as speaking a different language by virtue of their unique perception of Self and the World -- is overcome through the expansion and deepening of your own mind.  In order to develop each of these latent aspects of mind, you must begin to understand their language -- or the perception of self and the world from their unique vantage point.  And you can only accomplish this by empathically triangulating with those other people who see and understand the world from their unique perspective. 

 

The division of consciousness as personified in the allegorical account of the Tower of Babel Syndrome had been overcome, as portrayed in the speaking of tongues in the Book of Acts in the words: "...because each one heard them speaking his own language".   Thus, what is presented in the necessary reality of Elevated and Enlightened Wholeness that is necessary for the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the Mind for the End Times or Kingdom to Come within the Mind of the Seeker.  This reality of perspective is 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...".  

Wholeness requires higher evolved Intelligence -- and Higher Intelligence and Knowing is the ability to perceptively understand all sides and realities of the equation.  Each of the twelve spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life, perceives the world and all things from a unique perspective that is equally valid as the other eleven.  Allegorically, each speaks a different language as portrayed in the Tower of Babel Syndrome.  Each of the twelve possesses a unique and valid insight that must be brought into the Higher Mind that brings about Wholeness and Completion.   In the Pearl of Great Price it is taught that: "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and in his joy he went and sold all he had and bought that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls. When he found one very precious pearl, he went away and sold all he had and bought it" (Matt 13:44-46). 

The Kingdom is as a treasure hidden in a field -- because the field is your physical body, and because it is within you -- and can only be found within your own mind and being.  In order to obtain the pearl of great price, you must first possess the lesser pearls.  And you can only possess the lesser pearls, which are the twelve individual spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life, by evolving each of them to their highest potential -- which is portrayed in the transformation of Judas to Matthias, and then the elevation of the twelve to the Upper Room.   Wholeness is achieved when each of the twelve is brought together as pieces of the Whole -- each with their unique language and insights -- in the manifestation of the Oneness of the Pearl of Great Price.

The above teaching that was preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes states that "The One truth has many sides...", and each of the twelve spheres of mind  "...sees one side only".   The twelve spheres of mind are portrayed in the words: "...Behold this crystal; how the one light is manifest in twelve faces".  But the twelve is comprised of the four Trinities -- each patterned as male opposite female which make up the Tree of Duality -- and each having a third-force offspring as patterned in the Center Column of the Tree of Life.  And because the Divine Pattern is holographically replicated into each of the lesser parts, each of the twelve is comprised of the twelve within the twelve as portrayed in the words: "...yea four times twelve" (see below: The Twelve Within The Twelve).     

In the scriptures it is important to understand that what is personified as the People of the Nations, are controlled by the cosmic forces of the twelve signs of the zodiac (see The Laws That Control Our Lives).  The Jews who are portrayed as having received the Law of God, observe it outwardly in ritual and tradition because as personified allegorically, each of the twelve spheres of mind are divided into tribes.  What is personified in the Gospels is the highest expression of mind, because each of the twelve are not only singular (undivided), but they are disciples of the ONE -- with this ONENESS portrayed in the name Yeshua (Joshua/Jesus), who that is allegorically representative of having attained a condition of At-Oneness with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.  And when the Twelve are brought In The House, into the Upper Room of Higher Consciousness where because of the Presence and Unity of the Twelve, the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) is received, and each hears the Word of God in their own native language thereby overcoming the Tower of Babel Syndrome.  

How long does each Soul have to achieve this condition of evolved Wholeness and Completion?  With great wisdom Yeshua/Jesus is quoted in scripture known as The Books of the Savior -- also known as Pistis Sophia (Faith-Wisdom): "Do not cease seeking day or night, and do not let yourselves relax until you have found all the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light, which will purify you and make you into Pure Light and lead you into the Kingdom of Light."  And with respect to the transformation of the physical body into the Consecrated Living Temple (see The Final Temple), Jesus said: "Do not desist from seeking by day and by night, until you find the purifying mysteries of the light, which refine the body of matter and make it a pure light very refined." How important is it to seek the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light in the life of all people?   While many people who fail to understand the purpose of life and the human potential believe that all is required is to live a good life.   In the Pistis Sophia Jesus states this warning: “But if he shall have sinned once, twice, or thrice, they shall reject that soul, sending it back again into the world according to the form of the sins that it may have committed; the form whereof I will declare unto you hereafter. But verily, verily I say unto you, that even the righteous man that hath committed no sin at all cannot be brought into the Kingdom of Light, forasmuch the seal of the mysteries of that kingdom is not found upon him. Once for all, I say unto you, a soul cannot be brought into the kingdom, if it be without the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light.” And when properly understood, the finding and discovery of self is the primary objective of all scriptures (see An Inconvenient Truth). And when we add to this the statement from the Gospel of Philip that "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die" -- without the physical body which is of the fourth kingdom and the balance of the three upper heavenly and three lower earthly spiritual centers, it is impossible to grow and evolve the Light of the Soul -- and impossible to achieve the necessary Wholeness and Completion to bring about each of our Destiny in the Omega of Creation.

 

Achieving Wholeness Of Self

 

There is a purpose and objective to the life that mankind is presently living -- and to ignore this purpose, is failure.  To portray this world in a modern proper perspective, this world is God's Schoolhouse for his divine offspring.  As portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son, mankind is immersed in the necessary experience of self-development in pursuit of our ultimate destiny.  In the parable, the prodigal son was portrayed as being dead -- i.e., "...for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found" (Luke 15:24) -- and on one level, this portrayal of mankind being in a state of death is true.   As the prodigal sons and daughter, we can't remember our life in the Kingdom before we entered this realm (see Spiritual Amnesia).  Because we have squandered away our "inheritance" on what is portrayed as "riotous living", we have been totally alienated from our True-Self; and because we have brought upon ourselves a suppressed mental condition, we dwell as slaves to the Power and Consciousness of this world which in the parable is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country.   And when rightly understood, the only requirement to achieve a passing grade in God's Schoolhouse, is for you, as a student, to become Whole and Complete as portrayed 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). 

The memory of those who are Whole will be restored, and with each step in TheWay as they begin their journey Home, they will begin to remember when they dwelt in the Edenic Kingdom prior to their journey into this, the Far Country.  With their memory restored, they will remember all the cycles of life their Soul lived prior to this present life.  With degrees of Wholeness, they will fulfill the wisdom of the scriptures and be able to tap into an Inner Source of Knowledge that reveals the Truth of all Truths -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God'" (John 6:45).   Having turned from the thinking and ways of this world, their inherent organic human blindness will be healed as presented at Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development.   And with each step in TheWay as experienced in the cycles of life, they will enter each subsequent life-step with a greater cognizant and spiritual abilities as portrayed by their ability to receive a greater number of "talents" (see Spiritual DNA And The Allotment Of Talents To The Invited Guests) as bestowed upon them in direct accord with their level of mental development and spiritual achievement -- i.e., "to each according to his own ability" (Matt 25:15). 

Holographically, if there is physical DNA that each of us inherits which determines the conditions of our lives, then there is also Spiritual DNA that each of us inherits that determines the framework and foundation of our ability to comprehend man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.   And this fact of life is expressed by the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen who explained that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).  And what is the defining factor as to each person's ability to recall their Soul's past and be able to tap into the Sacred Knowledge of the Truth of all Truths?  The answer is simple, and is expressed in the reality of achieving Wholeness.  And with respect to achieving Wholeness, one of the most important teachings that was suppressed and removed from the canonical Gospels, has been preserved in the Gospel of Thomas in the saying: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".  Why?  Because what we see is a reflection of our own mind -- and is as a roadmap of our own mind in pursuit of Self-Knowledge as set forth in the same Gospel: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   @@@

If this realm is truly God's Schoolhouse, then we can pose the question: What are the parallels between this life and our own systems of academia?  If you were attending a traditional school in order to learn -- but you only occasionally went to class, and only casually studied and were familiar with the text-books -- you would not only fail to learn, but you would be unable to fulfill the requirements of the course of instruction.  In the same way that highly educated men and women authored the school text books and curriculums, the scriptures were authored by wise enlightened men who possessed unrestrained vision into the higher realities of life.  And when rightly understood, the scriptures are in fact a text-book that reveals to the student the Cosmology of Mind and Being -- i.e., Self-Knowledge. 

When Jesus portrayed an existing group of men and women as being Whole, and not in need of a physician (see above Wholeness of Mind & Being), when he stated: "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), it is important to understand how the process of Wholeness is brought about.  And perhaps even more important is the fact that these men and women who Jesus portrayed as being Whole and not in need of a physician, had achieved their level of Wholeness on their own -- which means that, in the same way that the prodigal son is portrayed as returning to the Edenic Kingdom without any assistance, it is important to recognize that all of mankind posses this innate ability to achieve.

While physical birth and development can be portrayed as a cookie-cutter process that is the same across the spectrum of humanity -- but what the wise enlightened men of the past understood, is that the same pattern is holographically true on all levels of Creation.  And therefore, when rightly understood, what is true with respect to human-development on a physical level, is holographically the same on each level of mankind's development.   And while the pattern is the same, it is therefore important to understand that while physical development can be portrayed as a cookie-cutter process, the development of mind must incorporate freewill and choice in order for the process of mental and spiritual development to function.   Unless one attempts to portray philosophical mind-programming as promoting a condition of knowing -- which it can't -- true knowing can only result from experiential-knowledge.     

 

In the article The Reality Of The Original Gospels, I explore the fact that when Jesus made the statement that "They that are whole have no need of the physician...", Jesus was making reference to the Essenes -- which was the bedrock from which Jesus himself emerged.  As confirmed by Dead Sea expert and biblical scholar Edmund Wilson when he acknowledge that  Jesus "...had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect, and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...” -- and it was the living out of this role that enabled him to became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ), as stated in the original Gospels prior to being corrupted by the fourth century Church (see TheTenWords.com ) when the voice of God said to mankind when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".  What the original Gospels therefore stated was that Jesus was a holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan.  

It was said of the Essenes that they spent a third to as much as half the evening studying the scriptures.  Why?  Certainly not to learn about history as presented in the literal text of the scriptures.  In fact, at the above linked article (  The Reality Of The Original Gospels ) I present the case that the Essenes and the Jews had very little in common -- and that as the authors of the scriptures used by the Jews, was more of an outreach endeavor on the part of the Essenes to assist the Jews who were being misdirected by their leaders who Jesus portrayed as "blind guides".  As a Community of Spiritually Enlightened men and women, the Essenes understood that the scriptures presented an allegorical blueprint of their own minds -- and in the deeper spiritual meaning, conveyed to the sincere seeker the Forces and Laws of Consciousness.   

The Jews were a nomadic animal sacrificing, idol worshiping, tribe of heathens -- and the enlightened authors of the scriptures composed scriptures that they could relate to.  If you are going to help and assist a nomadic heathen people, it is imperative to assist them on a level that they will embrace and understand.  This fact is confirmed in the words of the Church Father Origen who asserts that the Word (Logos) takes on a form which is appropriate to a certain group of people, that it might bring those people to a spiritual level of maturity: “If a Greek wished by wholesome instruction to benefit people who understood only Egyptian or Syriac, the first thing that he would do would be to learn their language; and he would rather pass for a Barbarian among the Greeks, by speaking as the Egyptians or Syrians, in order to be useful to them, than always remain Greek, and be without the means of helping them. In the same way the divine nature, having the purpose of instructing not only those who are reputed to be learned in the literature of Greece, but also the rest of mankind, accommodated itself to the capacities of the simple multitudes whom it addressed. It seeks to win the attention of the more ignorant by the use of language which is familiar to them, so that they may easily be induced, after their first introduction, to strive after an acquaintance with the deeper truths which lie hidden in Scripture. For even the ordinary reader of Scripture may see that it contains many things which are too deep to be apprehended at first; but these are understood by such as devote themselves to a careful study of the divine word, and they become plain to them in proportion to the pains and zeal which they expend upon its investigation” (Origen Contra Celsum).         

When we state that the scriptures are composed in a system of allegorical symbols and catalysts, what is rarely understood is that the allegorical symbols are not made-up as concluded by those who fail to "Recognize what is in [their] sight" -- but there is what can be called a Universal Language of the Soul that all of this physical realm is composed in.  Which means that the scriptures are in fact a text-book that is used by those who desire to learn the Language of the Soul -- which enables them to comprehend not only what they see in the outer world, but also their own Cosmology of Mind and Being.

The Process of Birth Within The Tree Of Life

 

 

I am presenting the following as an explanation to the modern Christians who have been victimized by the religious leaders throughout the past, and possess 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 ćtheric 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. 

  The Application Of The Law Of Octaves And The Real Trinity:  Why does the Gospels portray man as having been born blind?  Incapable of comprehending not only the spiritual meaning of the Gospels, but also his own higher Soul-Realty?  Why can't mankind Know God?   Why can't mankind see God?  Why is the mind of man limited in his cognitive ability?   Does mankind possess the ability to comprehend the mysteries of life and the universe?  The answer to this question is affirmative -- i.e., man has the innate ability to know the Truth of all Truths -- and the Source of this Truth exists at the Essence of his own Consciousness.  And it is only a matter of understanding the Natural Laws, and putting one's understanding into action. 

One of the primary teachings of the Original Gospels was to reveal to the seeker/disciple how to prevail over the Natural Laws that limited his/her consciousness.  But because the Gospel teachings were corrupted, the body of teachings are no longer as effective at opening the mind of the seeker/disciple to the Higher Truth of all Truths.  Therefore, many people seekng the answers to life have rejected the doctrines of the Church, and they instead pursue the path of science.  But because the vast majority of scientists lack an understanding of the Natural Laws which control the consciousness of mankind, there exists great voids that act as great obstacles in the path of scientific inquiry and higher understanding.  As an example:  Why can't science comprehend the mysteries of the Universe?  Robert Jastrow, an astrophysicist who headed the NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, pointed out that the big bang is not exactly an explanation of cause.  He is quoted in The Aquarian Conspiracy: “If a scientist really examines the implications, he would be traumatized. As usual, when the mind is faced with trauma, it reacts by ignoring the implications - in science this is called ‘refusing to speculate’ - or by trivializing the origin of the world by calling it the Big Bang, as if the universe were merely a firecracker”.   Mr. Jastrow then continues and states: “Consider the enormousness of the problem: Science has proved that the universe exploded into being at a certain moment. It asks, what cause produced this effect? Who or what put the matter and energy into the universe? Was the universe created out of nothing or was it gathered together out of pre-existing materials? And science cannot answer these questions... It is not a matter of another year, another decade of work, another measurement, or another theory. At this moment it seems as though science will never be able to raise the curtain on the mystery of creation”.  In an article Things That Science Can't Explain by Dr. Claude Swanson, he writes: "There are many things modern science cannot explain, and yet they occur anyway. This includes phenomena in the "hard sciences" as well as in the paranormal. These effects are now being proven in the laboratory, even though they defy present scientific theory. These unfolding mysteries point the way to a new, deeper science, a science which no longer denies spirit and consciousness, but acknowledges and embraces them.  In the past three decades scientific evidence has accumulated showing that the present scientific paradigm is broken."

Why is limitations placed upon the intellect and mind of mankind?  The Answer: Because he does not understand what can be called The Law of Octaves -- and as warned by the Enlightened Deists of the past, in his organic condition of mind man lacks an understanding of the Natural Laws as personified in The Laws of Nature and Nature's God.  And in not understanding what these same Enlightened Deists portrayed as the foundational theology of what is known as the Clockmaker Universe, even the purpose of life remains an unknown and unconquerable enigma to even the most intelligent among mankind.   Yet, because of the effect of the Law of Octaves, the answer to all the mysteries of life perpetually lie before man's eyes -- but until we learn why we are blind to our own higher Soul-Reality, we will continue not to see the answers to the very life we are living.  To further clarify this statement: There is no such thing as secret knowledge -- i.e., God and the knowledge of all the mysteries of Creation lie before our very eyes -- but we remain blind to our own Higher Reality.  Why?  Because we are ignorant of the purpose and effect of the Natural Laws working upon our mind and consciousness.  Can these Laws be overcome?  Yes -- with the knowledge of the Natural Laws -- their purpose in mankind's development -- and the proper application of the Laws in the person's life. 

While few people have ever heard of the Law of Octaves, what they fail to understand is the fact that the inability of the organic human ear to hear the twisting of the Natural Laws, causes us to remain ignorant and alien to both our own True Self and man's Higher Reality.  To understand the Natural Laws, it is important to recognize that there exists an anomaly in the hearing of organic "natural" man -- and while we can observe this anomaly in our sense of hearing, the anomaly is holographically true with not only all our senses, but also our cognitive abilities.  And from a scientific perspective, this anomaly can be easily proven -- but is for the most part ignored.  An anomaly is defined as an abnormality -- a blip on the screen of life that doesn't fit with the rest of the pattern.  In the case of the musical scale, there exists an anomaly that is inconceivable to the vast majority of both musicians and mathematicians which they cannot explain -- and because they cannot explain it, for the most part, they ignore even the existence of the anomaly.

Though the pattern of the Natural Laws is present throughout all of Creation, the movement of the Laws is perhaps easiest to see, hear and observe, in music.  And in pursuing an understanding, it is important to be cognizant of the reality that a musical note is a mathematical frequency that we are able to hear and detect with our ears.  In the same way, like the octave, there are seven colors within the spectrum of white-light that is representative of frequencies that we see with our eyes.  And in the consciousness of mankind, each of these frequencies are representative of a level of consciousness (see The Source Of Soul-Light http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#SourceOfSoulLight ).  And when rightly understood, the anomaly in our hearing is in accord with a Pattern of the Laws -- and this Pattern is replicated into all the Laws of Creation.  And from a paradoxical perspective, while the effect of the anomaly can on one hand be seen as a limiting factor that inhibits our mental advancement, it is this same limiting factor that is necessary to open the door to our eventual enlightenment. 

Again let me stress the fact that while the manifest Laws-at-work can be demonstrated more easily in music, its far-reaching reality is prevalent throughout all aspects of life in this world and beyond.  Recognizing the Universal Laws, it is written: "Having once established music as an exact science, Pythagoras applied his newly found law of harmonic intervals to all the phenomena of Nature, even going so far as to demonstrate the harmonic relationship of the planets, constellations, and elements to each other" (see The Pythagorean Theory of Music and Color ).  And when rightly understood, the only difference between the Intervals and Twisting of the Laws of Octaves as portrayed in music, then, is that the same sequence of the Laws that is easily observed in the notes of a musical scale, is more difficult to observe throughout the other aspects of life -- but quickly becomes apparent once one is cognizant of the pattern and sequence.  Why is the knowledge of the movement of the Laws important to not only seekers, but all of mankind?  Because our ultimate success or failure in life is often the result of the Natural Laws bringing about the envisioned results.  And while it is true that the Natural Laws impose a limiting factor upon man's acquisition of knowledge, the limitations are necessary in order to prepare us to receive and comprehend the Higher Knowledge we seek. 

Giordano Bruno and G.I. Gurdjieff both understood the Intervals of the Laws as manifest in the Law of Octaves -- with Gurdjieff portraying his Laws of Three and the Law of Seven in the centerpiece of his teachings as presented in the diagram of the Enneagram as seen in the image on the left.   P.D.Ouspensky wrote in his book, In Search Of The Miraculous with respect to the Enneagram being a symbol of Consciousness: "Speaking in general it must be understood that the enneagram is a universal symbol. All knowledge can be included in the enneagram and with the help of the enneagram it can be interpreted. And in this connection only what a man is able to put into the enneagram does he actually know, that is, understand. What he cannot put into the enneagram he does not understand. For the man who is able to make use of it, the enneagram makes books and libraries entirely unnecessary. Everything can be included and read in the enneagram. A man may be quite alone in the desert and he can trace the enneagram in the sand and in it read the eternal laws of the universe. And every time he can learn something new, something he did not know before."  Take particular note of the words "...For the man who is able to make use of it, the enneagram makes books and libraries entirely unnecessary."  It is inconceivable to the vast majority of people how a person who is able to apply the tenets of the enneagram would no longer need books, teachers the libraries of mankind.   Giordano Bruno confirms the above when he stated with respect to this Inner Source of Knowledge, that "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge."  And that the vast majority of mankind ignore this Inner Source of Knowledge, was confirmed by Bruno in the words: "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it"

While Plato did not openly make reference to the Law of Three or Seven in the manner of mystic/mathematicians such as such as Pythagoras, Bruno, Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, he did affirm the existence of an Inner Source of Knowledge that those seeking Genuine Enlightenment must pursue.  In Plato's Principles Of Anamnesis, he explained that the True Teacher was like a "midwife" who did not instruct and use rote programming of the student's mind as is the case today, but instead must "...aid with the birth of knowledge that was already there in the student" (see Anamnesis - The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths).   Which means that he was affirming the reality that the Source of Truth and Knowledge lies within each person's own mind, and genuine learning is to embrace the process of drawing this Inner Source out into the student's physical conscious mind.  And that this fact of reality has only now been proven by modern cutting-edge scientists, is explored at The True Facts And Realities Of Life).  And what this means is that by not teaching the student how to tap into this Inner Source of Knowledge, traditional academia does more to alienate the student from the Source of Knowledge that is superior to all the books and libraries of men (see Jesus The (Law) Professor).   And if it is true that God and all the answers to the mysteries of life lie before our very eyes -- and having ignored the enigma of the twisting of the octaves, science has remained not only ignorant of the enigma of the Natural Laws -- wherein, it is our own organic human blindness and limitations that inhibits us from acquiring the Higher Knowledge we seek -- then the ONLY REAL SOLUTION for the person seeking this Higher Knowledge, is to overcome their own cause of inherent human blindness in pursuit of seeking the True  Source of Truth that mainstream religion, philosophy and science has ignored.  

The Knowledge of the Natural Laws -- and especially the pattern of the Law of Octaves -- that the original core disciples of Jesus and TheWay understood, was the basis of their assertion to others that there is only One Teacher which they portrayed as The True Prophet.    And this is demonstrated in the words of the Apostle Peter who is quoted in the Homilies of his disciple Clement: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him...”.   In further explanation, Peter stated that the One Teacher and True Prophet is "...within the mind of every one of us".  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."   The problem is that only those who can overcome and prevail over the twisting of the Law of Octaves and resolve the condition of inherent organic human blindness, are able to tap into this inner Source of Knowledge that eliminates the need for the person from having to learn from books, teachers and the libraries of men. 

If we look at the picture of a typical keyboard on the right, can we see the anomaly that the mystics make reference to?  What we see is the whole notes represented in the white keys, and the half-tones in the black keys.  Regardless of the fact of whether we understand music or not, what we should quickly recognize is the easily discernable from a purely mathematical perspective, and the fact that if the white keys are representative of a whole note progressive sequence, then why doesn't every whole-note interval have a half-tone?  In the image of the keyboard, the absence of a black key between the third-to-fourth white keys -- and again, the absence of a black key between the seventh-to-eighth key, should cause us to question why?  Why is there no half-tone in the mathematical sequence represented in the progression between the third-to-fourth and seventh-to-eighth sequence of notes?   Moreover, the anomaly remains regardless of what note we begin the sequence on.   And if it is true that while the mystics have pursued the causal factor and have portrayed it as the true souce of all human ignorance of man's higher reality -- while science has failed to understand the enigma of the anomaly -- then those who embrace the wisdom of the scientist over that of the mystic, are themselves choosing the path of ignorance and unknowing. 

When rightly understood, it is the expression of the Natural Laws that has the effect of fooling our sense of hearing.  At important points in the sequence of the Natural Laws, an enigma exists that causes us to hear a half-tone as if it is a whole-tone progression.  When Gurdjieff portrayed his Law of Three, it was because the anomaly was predictable in every sequence.  Likewise, the same is true of the Law of Seven and the progression from one octave sequence into the next.  And while many mystics have sought the cause of the anomaly -- claiming that the effects of the anomaly creates an Inner Barrier to the development of man's intellect and consciousness (see Mental Barrier ) -- the vast majority of scientists have ignored the twisting of the Laws as if it doesn't matter and has no impact on their pursuits.  And from this perspective, the sincere inquiring mind of the Rational seeker or investigator should immediately ask the question: Why isn't there a half-tone between the third and fourth note on the keyboard and musical scale? Though the answer is very simple, the reality that is portrayed is so esoteric and beyond physical reality as we know it, that the most accomplished musicians cannot supply you with the answer to the enigma -- an enigma that unknowingly envelops every aspect of our lives and Creation.  The Answer: There is no half-tone between the white keys that are next to each other, because the fourth white key in the progression IS a half-tone that human organic ears falsely hears as a whole tone.  

When Paul stated to the Christians who he had himself taught what he portrayed the "milk" of Gospel designed for "babes in Christ" who were too immature to understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospels -- and he was therefore forced to present a parabolic qusi-historical account to them which he called the "traditions" of Christ and the PHYSICAL Resurrection -- an elementary teaching that the Church Father Origen admitted was “...preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (Origen Contra Celsum) -- it is the natural twisting of the Law of Octaves that keeps the thinking and cognitive development of organic man "earth-bound", that prompted Paul to convey the reality to the faith-based Christians that they were incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of the Gospel when he stated: “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  Animal-Soul ).   The question is: Why can't the natural organic mind of man comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God?  The answer is, because of the natural anomaly in his senses and organic cognitive reasoning that causes the whole framework of his thinking to remain anchored to the earth -- i.e., "earth-bound" -- that renders him incapable of comprehending anything beyond this three-dimensional reality that he does not at all understand the true nature of. 

It is important to understand what can be portrayed as the frequency shifts in the intervals that cause what can be called The Twisting of the Law of Octaves within the pattern of mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life.  The individual notes of the Musical Octave is expressed in the progressive (mathematical frequency) scale in the familiar terms: Doe, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Se -- and then evolving into the next Doe of the next subsequent Octave.   Yet, as demonstrated in the previous link on the Twisting of the Law of Octaves, the frequency steps THAT WE HEAR, are not uniform -- and while the progression in musical notes sounds uniform to the human ear, what on the surface appears to be a flaw in human hearing exists on all levels of our being.  And if we ask the question, why does it matter?  What can be portrayed as the twisting of the Octaves or Laws, when understood and applied holographically to all the Natural Laws, has the effect of keeping our thinking and perceptive vision and understanding earth-bound.  What is earth-bound?  Paul wrote that organic "natural" man was incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality (see Animal-Soul).  The Gospel itself portrays this realm as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).  The analogy of Plato's Cave portrays mankind as prisoners in a realm of shadow-image illusions (see Plato's Cave) -- that modern science has only now begun to confirm the above, and has concluded that mankind is blind to the Source of what we see (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life ), is a reality that few students of science are even capable of coming to terms with.  And therefore, it is because of the twisting of the Natural Laws that we are shackled to a condition of Self-Ignorance.  It it is true that what we see is incomplete shadow-images of a higher reality that we are organically blind to as demonstrated at the foregoing link, then the whole framework of our thinking based upon the incomplete shadow-images is gravely flawed.  

  The Twisting of Law at the Third Interval: In music the octave is expressed in the familiar terms Doe, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Si, Doe -- with the second Doe being the beginning of the next octave.  When the first Doe is sounded, this is passed onto the second note as represented in the term Re.  Here is where the problem begins -- i.e., the second note not only sounds the appropriate note/frequency which is Re in response to the previous Doe, but symbiotically on another level, inadvertently (and automatically) starts its own beginning octave independently of the first.  What this means is that when the sequence is passed onto the third note, it not only responds to the initial Doe-Re by sounding a Mi, but plays a Re in response to the Doe played by the second note sequence, as well as its own Doe in an independently initiated octave.  The result is that when the third sequence attempts to pass on the preceding sequences plus its own, the combination creates a false completion -- resulting in a twisting of the octave -- and what we hear as a full-tone, is actually a half -- resulting in the sequential pattern twisting, and going in a different direction other than what we would perceive to be a straight line. This twisting in turn creates a loop, which inadvertently returns the sequence in the direction of its initial beginning.  The result is that in the same way that we hear what sounds to us to be a sequence of whole-tones, even though it is not, without realizing it the Laws/octaves turn, and we end up confined into a three-dimensional reality because the Laws twist (as demonstrated in the example of the octaves), and we cannot perceive reality beyond the limitations of this world.

When the octave twists at the third-to-fourth sequence, the progression turns back to the earth.  It is at the third point in the progression of the Laws that test the progression for Substance -- and having failed the test of Wholeness at the third-to-fourth sequence, it is drawn back to the earth (earth-bound) by what is ALLEGORICALLY portrayed in the scriptures as satanic forces.   In order to be applicable in someone's developmental life, the person must be able to envision what is being presented.  Most of what I have written in the above would be meaningless to most people -- i.e., so, the Laws twist, and limitations are placed on your thinking.  To the vast majority of people, this reality portrayed in this manner is worthless -- i.e., they can't cognitively act upon what is being stated.  But if I say that there is a monster-angel who is striving to keep your thoughts on the earth -- keeping you from doing the Commandments of God -- thereby striving to keep you from entering into eternal life -- this allegorical portrayal is something they can act upon in their daily life.  In the foregoing I have capitalized the word allegory because what is portrayed as a fallen-angel (Satan) in the scriptures, is actually the personification of a Natural Law of Creation that serves an important purpose in the developmental-evolution of mankind.  In the parable of the Prodigal Son, when the son falls under the influence and control of the "Citizen of the Far Country", reference is being made to being anchored by the gravity of mind as personified in the allegorical portrayal of satanic earth-bound forces. 

God and the Realities of Creation are set before you, but because of the twisting of the Natural Laws, your perceptive-vision fails to evolve beyond a certain point, and remains earth-bound and drawn back into the physical/carnal.   Why?  The purpose of the Laws is to evolve the Soul to a condition of Wholeness -- level upon level -- and upon examination, without the necessary Wholeness you are incapable of comprehending even your own Higher Soul-Reality.  If your True-Self ia a twelve-dimensional being whose consciousness is the perfect balance of male and female -- the sum total of all the strengths of the races and divisions among mankind -- the sum total of all the experiences of all the lives that the Soul has lived since the dawn of time -- all that is heavenly (spiritual) and earthly (physical) -- inner and outer -- then it does not take much to realize that few people have anything in common with their True-Self.   Why is there such an enormous difference between the person we are in this world, and our True-Self?  Why is there such an enormous difference between an embryo that has begun to form in the womb, and a human adult?  A reality that I will present throughout this article is the reality that when we emerged out of our mother's womb, we then entered a Mental-Womb whose purpose was to evolve out mind.  But unlike our institutions of learning that employ rote-programming of the student, this realm as God's University employs experiential-knowledge to evolve the Soul through the levels of Spiritual Evolution.  Which means that we must be presented with choices -- and then we mature by living out the choices we have made.  And the Natural Laws that came into being in the Alpha of Creation, have been imbued with the process of bringing this process of maturation and evolution about in the existence of every Soul.

In looking at the image of the Mind as patterned in the Tree of Life at the left, Spirit as patterned in the top sphere is the Source, with its reflective opposite half patterned in the bottom Earthly sphere.  The First Cause of initiation of all (thoughts) begins in the upper-spiritual (male), into its opposite half (female/reflective) in the physical bottom earthly sphere, wherein the connection between the two (Mind) raises upward in the process of mental-conception.  Thus, we have Doe, Re and Me -- and it is at that point where because of lack of Wholeness, the progression of the mental-octave is subject to testing -- and if the test of Wholeness fails, subject to the twisting of the progression. 

When rightly understood, the same Universal Laws that control the physical, are also true in the mental and the spiritual levels of mind and being.  All conception in the physical requires the active essence of the male to be released in the womb of the female, where there is the opportunity of an embryo to be formed when the male and female essence combine into One.  The same Laws that control physical conception, are at work in the process of mental-conception -- and for the progression to arise up into the Center Column of the Tree of Life, there must be a merger of positive (male) and negative (female) to be at One.  But this can only be accomplished when the lower earthly-nature supports the upper heavenly-nature.  Which means that the lower earthly-nature must have been refined as personified in the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed.   Therefore, all progression once the exchange has been made from the first (heavenly) into the second (earthly) sequence, is determined by the condition and refinement of man's lower nature.  Allegorically, this has been personified in the scriptures as the refinement of man's lower animal nature (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature),  and the construction of the Living Consecrated Temple of the body (see Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple).    Thus, for the thought-progression to arise up the center and through the Tree of Life, man's lower nature must be refined and evolved to support his upper spiritual nature, and Adam (male) and Eve (female) must be joined together as "one flesh".  And this is portrayed in the teaching that was preserved in the Gospel of Thomas saying 22: "'These infants being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom.'  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'."    

If the above diagram is the pattern of mind, then when the Key of Knowledge is properly applied to the scriptures, what you are presented is the blueprint of the mind.  Paul correctly portrayed the written text and narrative of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).   Why?   Because the literal text of the scriptures is a quasi-historical facade that is necessary for the very limited instruction of the immature seeker -- with the true spiritual meaning remaining preserved and concealed beneath the garb of allegory (see An Inconvenient Truth).   The Church Father Origen explained that “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).   Further explaining in De Principiis 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.”    

That the undeveloped carnal mind of both the blind believer, as well as the skeptic critic, both attempt to ignore these important inconsistencies (see Inconsistencies Purposely Written Into Body Of Scriptural Text), and attempt to read the scriptures as an historical account, inhibits them from perceiving and understanding the great truths that lie concealed beneath the allegorical texts.   Like the Pharisees, they interpreted the scriptures outwardly -- incapable of comprhending that what is being presented to the reader, can be portrayed as the Cosmology of their Own Mind -- presnting the Laws and Forces of Consciousness.  And in the proper application of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, the Church Father Origen writes: “But all the narrative portion, relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever, what else can they be supposed to be, save the forms and figures of hidden and sacred things? As men, however, make little effort to exercise their intellect, or imagine that they possess knowledge before they really learn, the consequence is that they never begin to have knowledge"

What does this mean?   What it means is that "...all the narrative portion [of the scriptures], relating either to the marriages, or to the begetting of the children, or to battles of different kinds, or to any other histories whatever", do not at all pertain to historical accounts of man's more distant past -- but rather, to the Forces and Laws that are presently working within man's own mind and being.   Why?   How could Origen who was called the prince of Christian learning second only to the Apostles themselves, state that the historical interpretation of the scriptures is "worthless"?  And that what is presented in the written text as marriages, the begetting of children, and the many various wars and battles are not at all historical -- but rather, an allegorical portrayal of the Forces and Laws working within one's own mind and being? 

To understand the foregoing, you must first understand my above statement: When rightly understood, the same Universal Laws that control the physical, are also true in the mental and the spiritual levels of mind and being.  And this explains Origen's statement in Contra Celsusm where he explained about the allegorical non-historical nature of the scriptures: “It is sufficient however, to represent in the style of a historic narrative what is intended to convey a secret meaning in the garb of history, that those who have the capacity may work out for themselves all that relates to the subject.”   What does it mean: "...that those who have the capacity may work out for themselves all that relates to the subject.”   It means that when you apply the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge, that (1) there exists important guidelines in their interpretation; and (2), that you must begin to understand the Natural Laws; (3) and you must recognize that the same Laws working upon the physical, is also working upon the mental and spiritual levels of Self and Creation. 

While conception, birth and evolving to adult maturity is a rather lengthily single process in the physical, under the pattern of Natural Laws, the same process on the level of mind requires a great multitude of successive thoughts that are conceived  and raised up over the course of expanded development.  In the above I wrote: "When the first Doe is sounded, this is passed onto the second note as represented in the term Re ....the second note not only sounds the appropriate note/frequency which is Re in response to the previous Doe, but symbiotically on another level, inadvertently (and automatically) starts its own beginning octave independently of the first.  What this means is that when the sequence is passed onto the third note, it not only responds to the initial Doe-Re by sounding a Mi, but plays a Re in response to the Doe played by the second note sequence, as well as its own Doe in an independently initiated octave.  The result is that when the third sequence attempts to pass on the preceding sequences plus its own, the combination creates a false completion -- resulting in a twisting of the octave ...".  Do, the male DNA enters the womb, and "Re" joined with the DNA of the female -- and what is not understood is the fact that the Spiritual DNA of the incarnating Soul is then joined as the Third-Force Balance of the sperm and ovum at Conception.   In understanding this pattern of Law as being applied to the countless thoughts conceived and required in the development of the Mind, one is able to understand Origen's statement "...that those who have the capacity may work out for themselves all that relates to the subject”.  

In the pattern of the mental-octave, each thought is conceived through the same process in accord with the same Natural Laws.   The generative power is the Mental-Doe in the upper sphere in the head, and the Mental-Doe is transferred to its opposite polarity or half at the bottom of the Tree of Life where a Mental-Re which reflects the Do is them merged and progressed into the third Mental-Me in the return (female to male reflective return) is raised up into the Foundation Sphere of the mind as patterned in the Tree of Life.    In the same way that in the formation of an embryo, the Spiritual DNA of the incarnating Soul is joined with the merging sperm (male DNA) and ovum (female DNA) in physical conception, the Foundation Sphere of Mind as patterned in the diagram of the Tree of Life is connected to all the lives the Soul has lived from the Alpha of Creation.  This connection to all the previous lives the Soul has lived is through what can be portrayed as the Soul Mind-Matrix (see below The Evolving Soul).   The degree of Wholeness that a person can achieve, is greatly dependent upon the Wholeness of self achieved by the Soul of that person over the course of all the lifetimes that Soul has lived -- in conjunction with the degree of Wholeness the person has achieved in their present life.   Without the necessary foundation of Wholeness where Duality is overcome, the progression of the octave twists, sending the thought into the outer spheres of the male and female columns of the Tree of Duality -- channeling the bio-energy of the generated thought out into Nature as portrayed in the squandering away of the inheritance of the prodigal son on "riotous" living -- causing the prodigal son to dwell under the power of the Citizen of the Far Country -- sometimes allegorically portrayed as Satan and the god of this world.    In order for the mind to undergo the process of deepening and expansion, the conceived thought must arise up through the center and up the Tree of Life.          

If the conception of one's thoughts lacks Wholeness, the thought cannot enter the Center Column -- and the twisting of the Law of Octaves by the Natural Laws causes the progression to be diverted into the outer male or female columns -- which are also known as the Tree of Duality or the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil that brings death (mental flat-lining) to the eater thereof.   Because the person's generated thought fails the test of Wholeness at the third-to-fourth sequence, thereby inhibiting the development of your mind and consciousness beyond what Paul portrayed as the  Animal-Soul level of organic consciousness -- it is impossible for you to comprehend reality from the next level of Mind and Being.   

In other documents on this web site I have defined the allegorical biblical personage of Satan as a collective consciousness that is of the earth -- i.e., the gravity of mind that keeps our thinking attached to this realm.  When we are in what can be portrayed a mechanical mindset mode -- i.e., not totally conscious of what we are doing with our thinking deluged with random and seemingly never ending thoughts often portrayed as "race-mind", and merely going through the routines of life -- our mind is being diverted by nature in that loop that keeps the whole of our thinking and perceptive-vision attached to the earth.  In fact, we are often so being controlled by nature, that we can't even remember what we did the day before.  It is as if our life in on automatic mode, and we only wake up when something or someone collides with us.  It is this condition that the Apostle Paul defines as being of a "natural mind".

The scriptures are not at all historical accounts -- but they contain allegorical catalysts that are employed to bring about the expansion and deepening of the mind in order to enable the seeker of Higher Truth to be able to comprehend their own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality (see The Reality Of The Original Gospels ).  As stated in the above, allegorically, Satan is not a being -- but rather, Satan is the embodiment of what can be portrayed as the Natural Laws (see The Laws Of Creation ) that maintain what can be personified as the Gravity Of Mind that has the effect of shackling mankind to an earth-bound mindset -- rendering him incapable of comprehending man's higher soul and spiritually reality.   Throughout the scriptures what is allegorically personified as Angels, is in fact the Natural Laws of Creation that control our development of mind and spiritual advancement.  When Jacob wrestled with the Angel by night (see Genesis 32:22-31), prevailing over the Angel at dawn, what is being portrayed is the advancement achieved as one prevails over the Natural Laws of Consciousness -- and in the portrayal of Jacob, achieving what is personified in the name Israel. 

The meaning of the name Lucifer is usually identified with Satan. The name Lucifer, which means “bearer of light” or “morning star,” allegorically refers to his former splendor as the greatest of the angels.   And when Jacob was portrayed as having prevailed over the Laws at dawn -- becoming what is personified as Spiritual Israel -- Jacob was able to overcome the Natural Laws and comprehend what the organic consciousness of man cannot at all understand.   And the importance of this achievement is portrayed in the words of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas where it is stated:  “The disciples said to Jesus, We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader? Jesus said to them, Wherever you are, you are to go to Jacob (James) the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being" (see Seeking Jacob/James).   Thus, reference is not being made to an actual man named Jacob (James), but was is personified in the meaning of the name Jacob is ultra-important to all seekers of Truth and Higher Knowledge.  And what is allegorically portrayed is equally important to the seeker on the spiritual path, as it is to the philosopher and scientist.    And if it is true that heaven and earth came into being as an environment that would manifest growth and development maintained by the Natural Laws (Angels) that were put into effect in the Alpha of Creation, then the primary purpose of this physical realm is to evolve all of Creation into a Condition of Wholeness and Completion in our Ultimate Destiny which can be portrayed as the Omega of Enlightened Light.  And what is allegorically personified in the name Jacob (James) who wrestled with the Angel by night, and prevailing at dawn and becoming all that is manifest in the name Israel, is a process all of mankind is evolving through.  And when Israel is portrayed as the Chosen People of God, what is being personified not a family of people -- but rather, the Wholeness of Mind and Being that "...heaven and earth came into being" to bring about within the existence of all of mankind.  Yet, because they lack an understanding of the Natural Laws, the vast majority of spiritual seekers, philosophers and scientists remain ignorant of how to overcome the inherent ignorance and carnal limitations of the human mind.  

These Natural Laws which are personified in the allegorical portrayal of Satan, perpetually test us -- and only when we can prevail over the Laws embodying all that is personified in the name Jacob (James) -- at the level we are at -- are we then able to arise to a higher plane of mind and spirit which is personified in the name Yeshua (Joshua/Jesus).  When the Gospel account of Jesus stated: “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it.”   You must become all that is personified in the Gospel account of Jesus -- as stated: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt 5:48).  And this is the Destiny of all of mankind.

Unlike many of our educational systems which engage in various forms of social-promotion from grade to grade, the Natural Laws which are responsible for our mental and spiritual advancement require each of us to achieve results that will prepare us to embrace the next level of mental and spiritual proficiency.  And at each step in our advancement, we are tested (see The Laws That Control Our Lives) to ensure that we are prepared to function and learn on the next level of mind and being.  And this testing is the meaning of the proverbial Jacob's Ladder that must be climbed one rung at a time -- whereby each rung elevates us to the next level, and it is impossible to grab and raise up to the next rung, without letting go and releasing ourselves from the previous rung.   Thus, as stated in the Gospel Of The Nazirenes: "God gives you all truth, as a ladder with many steps, for the salvation and perfection of the soul, and the truth which seems today, you will abandon for the higher truth tomorrow. Press toward perfection."   In the progress of most people, a multitude of lifetimes is required because the person can't open their minds to higher truth -- i.e., "...the truth which seems today, you will abandon for the higher truth tomorrow".  Which means that in the example of most people, Soul-progression is limited to incremental paltry steps that often requires lifetimes to complete even one rung of the proverbial Jacob's ladder.

  The Octaves And The Narrow Gate: The twisting of the Natural Laws at designated intervals of testing, inhibits the advancement from progressing in a straight line -- turning the steps of the progression back to its source in the earth -- thereby inhibiting the progression from being elevated onto a higher plane that the person is incapable of intellectually functioning at.  Thus, unless you can prevail over the Laws at the interval where the testing takes place, you will fail to advance beyond the functional level where you are at.  Therefore, in order to prevail over the Laws at the interval of testing, you must bring into the equation the balance of the opposite polarities -- thereby manifesting the necessary Wholeness as personified in the Gospel statement: "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).  Wholeness requires both opposite paradoxical polarities to be manifest in a unifying third-force that overcomes the twisting of the Laws -- which twisting causes the line of progression to be turned back to its source in the earth.  And it is this turning of the line of progression that can be personified as the (Satanic) Force that keeps our thinking and perceptive-vision earth-bound and carnal -- forcing us to perpetually repeat the sequences of progression until we are able to prevail over the Natural Laws which test our progress.  And this testing of the progressive advancement through the Natural Laws is personified in the statement: "Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say to you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able" (Luke 13:24).   In order to enter through the "strait gate", you must prevail over the twisting of the Natural Laws which test your actions and progression for Wholeness and Completion -- thereby enabling you to advance in a strait line -- passing through the "strait gate" -- instead of the twisting back to the earth-level of consciousness.  

In the above (see Foundational Process of Birth), the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 (see Saying 22) states: "...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" -- the Center Column of the Tree of Life is neither male or female -- but is the Third-Force Balance of the outer male and female columns of the Tree of Duality -- the eating of the fruit thereof, allegorically brings death to the eater.  Why death?  Because our Soul or True-Self dwells in Wholeness, and is not subject to the division of male and female.  Which means, that so long as we remain divided across the dynamic polarities of male and female, it will remain impossible for us to comprehend our own Higher Soul-Reality (see http://SoulSelf.org ).   As the Doe, Re, Me of the thought-octave progresses into the Foundation Sphere of the Mind as personified in the diagram of the Tree of Life, unless a Balance and Wholeness of the Male/Female Impressions is achieved which make them Complete, the twisting of the Law of Octaves will force the progression into one of the outer (male or female) columns -- and with the twisting into the outer columns of the Tree of Duality, the "strait gate" through the Center cannot be entered -- therefore, the paradoxical polarities of male and female cannot be merged and restored into the necessary Wholeness that will permit entrance up the Center Column and into what is personified as the Kingdom.   

The development of mind, spirit and the elevation of consciousness is an enduring process of mental deepening and expansion.  In the same way that our physical body was formed as orchestrated by the Natural Laws, so too is our Mind and Mental Bodies that surround physical form.   With the exception that in order for the Mind to form, it most be subject to the choices we make and the exercise of freewill.  As we begin to deepen our consciousness, we are able to tap into our twelve-dimensional Eternal-Self that is a Being of Light -- which we are an expression of that has been projected into this three-dimensional realm.  But the process of deepening our mind requires a great amount of work on self -- i.e.,  "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22).  In the Epistle to the Corinthians Paul commands to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- 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 - see Judgment Day - Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being ).  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).   Perpetual prayer can be defined as positive thoughts of a higher expression that is able to be drawn up through the "strait gate" -- invoking the process of expansion and deepening of our Mind.

As Jacob/James, the brother of Yeshua/Jesus, the man who was the first leader of the New Covenant Church and was known as a true holy man, wrote that in order to fulfill the vision of the Gospel, one had to "…bridle the whole body" (James 3:2).  While this may appear totally alien from the perspective of the modern Christian who fully indulges in the unbounded excesses of our present-day cultural lifestyle, the Apostle Paul confirmed the validity of these words from a New Covenant perspective when he wrote of the necessity to "…beat my body and make it my slave..." (1 Cor 9:27 NIV).  Moreover, when Paul stated that salvation is by faith over the ritual works of the Law of Moses, what he portrayed as faith meant an entirely different thing to the Apostle Paul than what is being preached from our pulpits today.  And this can be seen in Paul’s commandment to all who would call themselves a Christian to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).  If the congregation of believers could simply have faith, without living a Consecrated Life set apart from the thinking and lifestyle of the people of this world, then Paul would not have warned the believers of the simple faith 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).   To mortify the deeds of the body takes work -- a great amount of work -- and this work cannot be accomplished through a static faith.   The problem is that these biblical commandments have absolutely nothing in common with the doctrine of faith that was promoted by Martin Luther in the Middle-ages.

When Paul taught to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ", what he was stating was to balance and make whole every thought so it can enter into the "narrow gate" and bring about the necessary expansion and deepening of mind.  Those thoughts that are not balanced and whole, are diverted into the outer columns of the Tree of Duality and the bio-energy is then squandered away and lost into nature.  When Jacob/James stated the necessity to "…bridle the whole body", he was expressing the need to domesticate man's lower animal nature to transform it into a servant and foundation for man's higher spiritual nature to manifest (see Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple).  When Jesus stated “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it” -- he was conveying the reality that the person you are in this world is a lesser three-dimensional self that is a projection of your Higher Twelve-Dimensional Soul -- and unless you are nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life, you can never achieve the next stage of birth, and you will therefore fail to be restored to the Permanence of your Higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ).  

When rightly understood, the Gospel Sermon on the Mount is a proclamation of the Natural Laws that control all realities in the life that every person is living (see Jesus The Law Professor).  And the Natural Laws interact and intimately affect every aspect of your life regardless of your belief or non-belief.  When rightly understood, this world can therefore be portrayed as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that for the objective and purpose of our learning and bringing about our development, returns to each person the fruit of their own words, thoughts, desires and deeds -- not immediately as when we touch a hot plate -- but rather, in many instances this realm returns our actions back to us when a reversal of polarity has been brought about.   As stated in the Bible: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7).   Not immediately -- because that would negate the process of growth and testing.  If you were to hit someone, and you were immediately hit in the same measure you did to the other person, then you would simply refrain from hitting the other person.   The reasons within your own mind and being that provoked you to hit the other person would not be resolved, just suppressed.  But if the Laws of Creation brought about that condition which was reversed, only then would you as a victim of your own previous actions, learn the consequences of being hit.  You would then learn from the experience of the victim -- and, because your Soul would possess the experiences of both, your Soul would learn and develop from the experiences of both aggressor and victim. 

Few understand the depth of the statement: "He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; ...Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10 NKJ).   When the word "captivity" is understood as forcing your will upon another person, only then can the reality of this world be understood.   There is not only physical captivity, but also mental captivity, philosophical, religious and cultural captivity, marital and gender captivity.  Any time you force your will upon another, you will experience your own actions as a victim in your future.   All of which must be understood within the context of: As you do unto others, the same will be done unto you -- "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets" (Mat 7:12) --  which is just another way of saying that your own judgments will come back upon you in your own future.    And when the Law and the Wisdom of the Prophets is understood, whatever you do to others, will be returned and come back upon you.   Including the judgments you make of others -- i.e., "Judge not, that you be not judged.  For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you" (Matt 7:1-2 NKJ).  

In the next subheading in this article on the Trinity, I will demonstrate that in the first allegorical Creation account of Genesis, male and female exist in Oneness and Wholeness -- and this is in fact our True Natural State of Being.  And this is true with respect to the Mind of God where the polarities personified in Mother-God and and Father-God exist in Oneness.  Our Soul and True Self is a Being of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ), because the Male and Female opposite polarities exist in the original pattern of Wholeness.  Which provokes the question: Where, then, did the division of male and female take place?  In the second Genesis Creation account the Feminine is drawn from the Male and divided, in order for the two Dynamic Polarities of Male and Female to interact and bring about mental development and spiritual growth and evolution.  Without this male and female interaction on all levels of our being, we remain mentally flat-lined and spiritually inpatient.   As it is stated: "And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply..." (Gen 1:28) -- and what is indicated in an expansion and deepening of the Mind that only can be achieved in the dynamic interaction of the male and female paradoxical opposite spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Duality and the Tree of Life.

Holographically, all that exists in the Mind of God, is impressed into Mankind who is 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).   But it is important to understand that what is personified as Mankind, is in fact the restored condition of Man and Woman as being At-One in the Wholeness of their Manifest Being -- i.e., "Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created" (Gen 5:2 KJV).  And in the Holman Christian Standard Bible: "He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created".   Which indicates that Adam is not a name -- it means Mankind as expressed in The New International Version: "He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them 'Mankind' when they were created."  

What is personified in the Trinity in the form of Father, Mother and Son or Logos (Mind), is also manifest in each of us as the offspring of God.  Thus, in the image of the pattern of Mind as portrayed in the diagram of the Tree of Life at the right, the Heavenly Kingdom is personified as representing Father-God -- with Mother-God having been drawn from the Divine Male as personified in the Earthly Kingdom in the below -- with the Third-Force of Mind which has the innate potential to bring the opposites together in the Center (Love-Sphere).   When we therefore understand the twisting of the Laws of Octaves when the bio-energy is transmitted in the First-Cause Source (Heavenly Kingdom) in the portrayal of the Cosmic Note DO, into the Opposite Polarity of the next sequence into RE in the Second-Cause Earthly Kingdom, which is then expressed as the bio-energy/consciousness begins its movement back up through the Mind (Logos) in an attempt for the bio-energy to return to to the Source in the Heavenly Kingdom -- the third-note of MI in the Foundation Sphere is where the Octave then twists (see The Law of Octaves ) either to the Left or the Right  -- and with the natural twisting of the Laws, sending the bio-energy into the Male or Female outer columns of the Tree of Duality (aka Knowledge of Good and Evil).   The Thoughts and Impressions of the divided Male or Female spheres of mind in the outer columns, is in fact the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality that brings death to the eater thereof.  Why death?  Because of the lack of Wholeness and Completion.  But it is the natural twisting of the Law of Octaves between the notes of Mi and Fa in the sequence of do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, se and do, that causes the bio-energy to be channeled into the outer Male or Female Columns.  And when the original Ebionite Nazirene Disciples of Jesus said that he became the Anointed (Messian/Christ) by fulfilling the Law within himself (see Ebionites), overcoming the twisting of the Law of Octaves was one of the primary Laws he prevailed over -- 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).  It remains impossible for organic natural man to eat the fruit of the Tree of Life, without achieving the necessary Wholeness and Oneness of the male and female columns of the Tree of Duality to which they are polarized to by virtue of their physical gender.

As the Mind develops through the interaction of the Male and Female Columns -- which merger of opposites have the capacity to restore the unity of the upper Heavenly and lower Earthly Kingdoms together -- the exchange of bio-energy can only be returned to the Source within us, through the Wholeness of Mind as the merger of the Male and Female on all levels of our being brings the bio-energy up through the Center Column -- where the person is then nourished by the Life-Giving Fruit of the Tree of Life.  But, in order for the bio-energy to return to the Source in what is personified in the upper Heavenly Kingdom, it can only pass through the six incremental steps as personified in the Octave Notes of Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, through the seventh increment of Se, through the the Intellect Sphere, and returned to the Source in the Higher Heavenly Kingdom.  The crucial Intellect Sphere can be thought of as the physical body where the test of both (male/female) balance and the application of our faith, mental development and knowledge is manifest through our works and actions -- i.e., "In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead" (James 2:17).  And it is the balance of the male/female opposite polarities of mind, in conjunction with the restoral and reuniting of the (Male/Female) Upper and Lower Kingdoms as manifest in the works and application of faith and knowledge as personified in our works and actions in the transitioning of the Octave through Se into the next Do in the Intellect Sphere of the Mind as manifest in the pattern of the Tree of Life, that is responsible for the process that expands, deepens and evolves the Mind into a Condition of Spiritual Maturity that brings about the necessary Wholeness as personified in the statement: "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 this reference, those who are sick and in need of the physician, are the lost prodigal sons and daughters who because of their divided natures, expel their inheritance in the form of the inherent bio-energy into Nature -- unable to channel it through their own minds and return the bio-energy to the Source in the Heavenly Kingdom.

While the foregoing is in reality a basic portrayal of the Mind, it is important to understand that the White Light of the Soul is derived from the Wholeness achieved through the Oneness of the Seven Spiritual Centers of the body (see The Evolving Soul) -- and the Seven Spiritual Centers is manifest in the glands of the body.  The Mind which is manifest in the Ćtheric Field that surrounds the body, functions through the organs of the body.  And this is why the diagrams of the Tree of Life are imposed over the physical body of Man.  As I will explore throughout the below article, each Soul which has been created in the Image of God, can be seen as a vertical slice of Creation -- and all that exists in Creation and the Mind of God, also exists within us.  Which is the basis of the statement on the Delphic Oracle in the words: "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."   Thus, all that we perceive outwardly, is a reflection of our Inner Self and Our Own Mind and Being.  Which is the basis of the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: "Jesus said, ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   And this is why the Original Gospel is not an historical account -- but very much a portrayal of the seekers own Mind, and the Forces and Laws of Consciousness (see The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).  That the Jews who perpetually observe the Law of God outwardly in ritual and tradition -- thereby portrayed as "blind guides" by the account of Jesus in the Gospels -- is why the Jews are condemned as throwing away the Key of Knowledge in their carnal interpretations (see http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ).   Therefore, the majority of what you will find presented herein, is not compatible with Kabbalah because of their carnal interpretations that are in most instances, expressed outwardly by the Jews.

The Law of Octaves And The Gift On The Altar: It is important to understand that when the bio-energy which is the "inheritance" of the prodigal son that he squanders away on "riotous living", hits the Foundation sphere which is manifest in the Colon, the condition of the Colon is of the utmost importance.  In the below subheading entitled The Holographic Mind, the result of what is called an impacted colon severely impacts the thoughts of a person.  And this is especially true when it is understood that the Foundation Sphere of Mind is our connection to the previous lives our Soul has lived within what can be portrayed as the Soul Mind-Matrix (see The Matrix And Soul-Mind ).  And this is why a vegetarian will be able to acquire and develop Soul-Memory (see Spiritual Amnesia ) -- which is one of the primary reasons why meat-eaters can't develop the mind beyond what is portrayed as an "animal-soul" level of consciousness (see Animal-Soul ).   It is also important to understand how carnal man-made doctrines of belief not only flat-line all mental development beyond the "animal-soul" level of consciousness, but also the adherence to these man-made doctrines of belief inhibit the ability of a person to begin to acquire Soul-Memory and recall the previous lives their Soul has lived.   The adherence to these doctrines of belief, undermine the necessary foundation of mind out of which higher development can be brought about (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ) -- as expressed in the reality of the statement: "The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend".   Erroneous dogmatic man-made carnal beliefs impede and obstruct the development of mind beyond a low-level  "animal-soul" level of consciousness.  

Because the Foundation Sphere of Mind as patterned in the Tree of Life is where each person has a connection to all the previous lives their Soul has lived, it is at this point were our Soul's past greatly impacts the progression of the Octave.  What debts have been incurred over the course of the lives the Soul has lived -- i.e., "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7).  Which was explained by the Church Father Origen in the words: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see The Early Church On Predestination).   Those who are bound by their Soul's past, and have been cast into what Jesus portrayed as the prison, are not free of debts -- i.e., "Come to terms quickly with your opponent while you are on the way to court, or your opponent may hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you will be thrown into prison" (Matt 5:25).  Whatever debts remain from the previous lives the Soul has lived, will derail the progression of the octave until which time the debt(s) are satisfied -- i.e., in reference to the prison: "Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out of there, until thou hast paid the uttermost farthing" (Matt 5:26). 

As explained and explored in the subheading The Laws That Control Our Lives, every event that we encounter in this life has a causal factor that is initiated in the past.  The causal factors are directly initiated by the events of the previous lives our Soul has lived.  The question posed to Jesus by his disciples: "Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?'" (John 9:1-2), is reflective of the reality that the Soul incurs debts that must be satisfied in that Soul's previous lives.  In the Gospel of the Nazirenes the most important part of the foregoing teachings is preserved in the statement: "And at another time as Yeshua passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?  Yeshua answered, To what importance is it whether this man or his parents sinned? The rewards of our actions return again to us so that the works of the Lord are made manifest...".  Are the words "...The rewards of our actions return again to us", any different than  “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV)?  Or the assertion that “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).   And that each person will be returned to this life in accord with the debts they have incurred in their Souls previous lives -- and will remain in their own self-imposed Prison, until all debts are cleared, is the same as the statement that “Thou shalt by no means come out from there, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (Mat 5:26).   Which means that your present life has been orchestrated by the actions of your Soul's previous lives -- and whatever debts you have incurred in this present life, will be returned back to you in a future life -- and thereafter from life to life, until "...thou hast paid the uttermost farthing”.  Once again as personified in the words of the Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see The Early Church On Predestination).   Thus, whatever befalls you in the present, is the result of your Souls actions in a previous life.  And you don't understand this reality of the Laws of Creation, because the Church edited all these teachings out of the Gospels (see The Religion Of Roman Emperors).   

When Jesus warned the man "...sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14) -- he confirmed the doctrine that all the calamities of life are caused by man's sin and disobedience to the Royal Law of God.   On the question itself that the disciples of Jesus asked -- i.e., Master, who did sin? -- the commentary Barnes’ Notes writes that: "It was a universal opinion among the Jews that calamities of all kinds were the effects of sin. The case, however, of this man was that of one that was blind from his birth, and it was a question which the disciples could not determine whether it was his fault or that of his parents. Many of the Jews, as it appears from their writings (see Lightfoot), believed in the doctrine of the transmigration of souls; or that the soul of a man, in consequence of sin, might be compelled to pass into other bodies, and be punished there. They also believed that an infant might sin before it was born (see Lightfoot), and that consequently this blindness might have come upon the child as a consequence of that".   On the question of who did sin, this man, or his parents, and the pre-existence and reincarnation of the soul, the Adam Clarke Commentary tells us: "The doctrine of the transmigration of souls appears to have been an article in the creed of the Pharisees, and it was pretty general both among the Greeks and the Asiatics. The Pythagoreans believed the souls of men were sent into other bodies for the punishment of some sin which they had committed in a pre-existent state. This seems to have been the foundation of the disciples’ question to our Lord. Did this man sin in a pre-existent state, that he is punished in this body with blindness? Or, did his parents commit some sin, for which they are thus plagued in their offspring!... The Jewish rabbis have had the same belief from the very remotest antiquity. Origen cites an apocryphal book of the Hebrews, in which the patriarch Jacob is made to speak thus: I am an angel of God; one of the first order of spirits. Men call me Jacob, but my true name, which God has given me, is Israel: Orat. Joseph. apud ORIG. Many of the Jewish doctors have believed that the souls of Adam, Abraham, and Phineas, have successively animated the great men of their nation. Philo says that the air is full of spirits, and that some, through their natural propensity, join themselves to bodies; and that others have an aversion from such a union. See several other things relative to this point in his treatises, De Plant. Noe-- De Gigantibus-- De Confus. Ling.-- De Somniis, etc.; and see Calmet, where he is pretty largely quoted".

Thus, when Jesus stated that at Matthew 5:23-26:  "But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell. So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God."   And then, with the foundational teachings on the pre-existent Soul removed from the Gospel, it has become impossible to understand the warning which follows the foregoing: "When you are on the way to court with your adversary, settle your differences quickly. Otherwise, your accuser may hand you over to the judge, who will hand you over to an officer, and you will be thrown into prison. And if that happens, you surely won't be free again until you have paid the last penny."  And what this means is that until you have rectified all debts against the Soul of your brother or sister to whom you have incurred a debt, that the two of you will continue to be brought back together -- in similar circumstances -- until the debts have been resolved and forgiven -- and you will remain in this self-imposed Prison -- unable to advance into a more spiritually mature condition which would enable you to begin to receive the Divine Manna or Sacred Knowledge -- until which time the debts that were incurred, have been released from your Soul.  As the octave progresses through the Foundation sphere of mind, thereby entering through the "narrow gate" is where the altar that Jesus personified is encountered -- i.e., "Therefore if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift" (Matt 5:23-24).   Whatever debt you have incurred with your brothers and sisters, will derail the progression of the Octave without the balance of the Judgment and Mercy Spheres of Mind.

  The Law Of Opposites:  Every action has a corresponding reaction that initiates an opposite action.  When a Thought progression is initiated in the initial Doe of the upper sphere of mind -- a corresponding action is initiated in the bottom sphere which is the reflective (feminine) opposite polarity of the top sphere within the pattern of mind as personified in the diagram of the Tree of Life at the right.  What this means is that when a progressive Doe is initiated by the top sphere and transferred to its reflective opposite in the bottom sphere, a corresponding opposite action is initiated where in reverse, the bottom sphere responds with its own Doe that is then reflected in the upper most top sphere.  And in the sequence of Doe, Re, Mi, we see the opposite reflective reaction and twisting of the octaves at the Intellect sphere.   But herein we must understand the meaning and significance of the term Intellect -- which is basically understood in how a person utilizes their knowledge in one's daily actions. 

The Knowledge sphere that is portrayed just beneath the Intellect sphere is the balance of the upper feminine Wisdom sphere and the upper male Understanding spheres.   And this Knowledge is not drawn from the outer world -- but rather, from the Inner Source that nourishes the the mind through the Divine Manna conveyed by the Inner Logos (aka Son of God/True Prophet).  When the Gospels make reference to being nourished by the blood and body of the Son of God, what is being portrayed is the Divine Manna (Spiritual Knowledge) that is allegorically portrayed as the blood (Holy Spirit) and body (Spiritual Knowledge) that can only be imparted to the person directly from the Logos or Son of God that is personified as the True Prophet. 

With great wisdom Jesus is quoted in The Books of the Savior, also known as Pistis Sophia (Faith-Wisdom): "Do not cease seeking day or night, and do not let yourselves relax until you have found all the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light, which will purify you and make you into Pure Light and lead you into the Kingdom of Light." And of the transformation of the physical body Jesus said: "Do not desist from seeking by day and by night, until you find the purifying mysteries of the light, which refine the body of matter and make it a pure light very refined." How important is it to seek the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light in the life of all people -- many of whom believe that all is required is to live a good life? In the Pistis Sophia Jesus states this warning: “But if he shall have sinned once, twice, or thrice, they shall reject that soul, sending it back again into the world according to the form of the sins that it may have committed; the form whereof I will declare unto you hereafter. But verily, verily I say unto you, that even the righteous man that hath committed no sin at all cannot be brought into the Kingdom of Light, forasmuch the seal of the mysteries of that kingdom is not found upon him. Once for all, I say unto you, a soul cannot be brought into the kingdom, if it be without the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light.”

How is this Sacred Knowledge or Diving Manna imparted to the seeker?  The second century Bishop Valentinus stated that without an understanding of the Laws of Creation, it would be impossible for the faith-based Christian to evolve to a state of spiritual maturity -- a condition of mind that is necessary to receive that Divine Manna that is portrayed above as "...the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light”.  And it is therefore imperative to being to understand what one perceptively-understands when they gaze out at the world -- i.e., Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".  And to even begin to understand what one sees as they look out at the world and the great division that is seen among mankind that can rightly be portrayed as the Tower of Babel Syndrome, it is imperative to understand The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind -- and the Laws that cause everyone to see and understand the world and all of life from different and often conflicting perspectives.   In order to receive the Divine Manna or the Knowledge of "...the mysteries of the Kingdom of the Light”, it is imperative to have embraced the The Solution to the Enigma of the Segmented Mind through the process of Triangulation - in order to Overcome The Tower Of Babel Syndrome -- which is necessary to bring about  Mental/Spiritual Growth, and the Expansion necessary to institute Soul-Birth. 

In the progression of the Octave into the Doe, Re, Me through the upper Intellect sphere of mind -- where by the progression is not twisted into the outer columns of the Tree of Duality, thereby permitting the coming together in the Center, Divine Love sphere -- which manifestation in this Center sphere is the fulfillment of the Gospel.  Where the teaching on entering the Kingdom in the Gospel of Thomas states: "These infants being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom. 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."   To fully understand this ultra-important teaching, it is imperative to understand the version that has been preserved in the 69th chapter of 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."  And only when we understand the progression of the Octaves through the "narrow gate" within us, can be comprehend how we fulfill the teaching to "...enter into the center and passing into the spirit".  

In the Gospels the requirement is set forth in the words: "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ).  In order to enter in at the "narrow strait gate", one must prevail over the Laws that test us.  In the foregoing, the word translated "destruction" in no manner represents what is actually being presented.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.  Until one evolves to that condition of mental and spiritual maturity where they can prevail over the Laws, and manifest the Center Love sphere, the Soul must continue to evolve over the course of how ever many lives is necessary to fulfill the Law within themselves.  And this is why the Soul who lived as the historical man Jesus prevailed over the Law, and became the Anointed -- i.e., his Ebionite Nazirene disciples stated that 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, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   And it is the fulfillment of the Laws that is the destiny of all of mankind whereby each Soul will prevail when they allegorically pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay.  "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46 KJV).   And this is why Jesus warned those who would call themselves his followers and believers: “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt 10:38-39 NKJ).

That the foregoing teaching which is contained in the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 was important to the first century followers of Jesus, is demonstrate in  The Second Epistle of Clement where this ultra-important teaching that was removed from the Gospels modern Christians use is quoted as stating: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   What Clement -- the disciple of Peter who is claimed by the Church as the fourth pope in succession of Peter -- is stating in accord with the Original teachings is that when the seeker/believer brings this condition about within their own Mind and Being, that the predicted and expected Kingdom will come within them as promised -- as stated in Jesus' teachings on the Key of Knowledge (see The Third Fatal Mistake - Not Proving The Truth).

It is important to recognize that when Clement wrote the above in his Epistle to a congregation of Christians, he did so in the expectation that the people to whom he was writing would understand the great truths he was presenting to them.   That the Kingdom or End Times would and could only come when "...two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   And the fact that this statement that is in the Gospel of Thomas and was contained in a first century Epistle from an elder to a congregation of believers in that time-frame, could not be contained and understood in a letter or epistle to a congregation today, is merely one example of the fact that the dogma and thinking of the modern Church has virtually nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus known as TheWay (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma ).   Which provokes the question: Has the requirements to enter the Kingdom changed in order to accommodate the dogmatic corruption of the Church?   Has Truth and Higher Spiritual Reality been discarded and thrown away, because the Church threw this body of essential Knowledge pertaining to the Coming of the Kingdom away?   Or, does modern Christians dwell in a self-imposed Diaspora of abject Spiritual Ignorance which was brought about by the massive corruption of the scriptures (see BibleCorruption.com ), and the suppression of the body of essential knowledge that is necessary to restore the lost prodigal son to his rightly place in the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.

When Jesus conveyed to Nicomedus that "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- and when Nicomedus did not understand the threefold process of birth, Jesus then asked how he could be a teacher, and not know these spiritual realities: "...Nicodemus answered and said to Him, How can these things be?  Jesus answered and said to him, Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?  It is important to grasp the reality of the words that when Nicodemus did not grasp the reality of achieving the next stage of birth, that Jesus replied:   Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.  If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:1-12 NKJ).  Thus, if the next stage of birth was brought about by saying a prayer to the Jesus-god created by fourth century pagan Church of Rome -- or, the sinners prayer as is commonly practiced by modern Christians -- then Jesus would not have replied to Nicodemus in this manner.   He would have stated to Nidodemus that a person must say the prayer to the Messianic Lord and Savior, in order to be born again.   But he did not, because this man-made dogma had not yet been invented and propagated by faux-priests who were part of the great shadow-church of pagan Rome.  

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".  

That the later fourth century Church of Rome threw this essential knowledge away that the first-century Christian clearly understood, does not in any manner change the requirements of birth that Jesus set forth in the Gospel.   In the words of that 60’s philosopher Bob Dylan during that time of his life when he was a student of Hebrew Mysticism, when he said: "He who’s not busy being born, is busy dying"!  There are Two Ways -- i.e., what Jesus portrayed as the "narrow path" of TheWay of Life, and the "broad-way" that the vast majority of mankind walks to their own demise.   And if you fail to bring about the next stage of birth -- with the Second Coming and End Times coming within you, while you are still in the physical body -- it will be impossible to accomplish this necessary next stage of birth in the after-life when you pass from this world.   Thereby fulfilling the statement: "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28 NKJ).  As stated in the Gospel of Philip: "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die"    Therefore, it is impossible to fulfill the requirements of the Gospels without first fulfilling the teaching of Jesus when he stated: "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 it is for this reason that the narrow path of TheWay is portrayed as difficult that few find -- i.e., regardless of what your pastor, minister, priest, clergy or inspired preacher tells you, if you fail to find the "narrow gate that is difficult and which leads to life, and only the very few ever find it" that permits entrance into the Kingdom within you (Luke 17:20-21) while you are still alive in the physical body, you will have walked the broad-way that is walked by the multitudes to their own self-destruction.   The Gospel of Thomas opens with the profound statement: And [Jesus} said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."   The only way to find the meaning of the above statement with respect to overcoming the male/female columns of Duality of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, is to remerge what is allegorically personified as Adam and Eve into their original condition of Adam/Eve, and eat the Life-Giving Fruit in the Center of the Tree of Life ( http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).   Which means that to "find the interpretation of these saying", the seeker/disciple must bring about the next stage of birth by  "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."  

The Gospels continually warn us that the path or the second birth and entrance into the Kingdom is not easy.   The strife of the inner war within ourselves as embodied in the symbols of Armageddon is seen in the words: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ).  In the words of Jesus: "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me" (Matt 10:38 NKJ).   Thus, in the same way that a woman travails in labor to bring a child into this world, we must ourselves endure the "…many tribulations" of spiritual labor to be born into the Kingdom of God.   Since the Kingdom is within us, and Armageddon is therefore not an historical event -- but more factually, a spiritual event in the life of the disciple in search of Truth -- we must then totally re-evaluate everything we think we know about both the Gospel Message, and the life we are presently living.   In fully comprehending these biblical statements in relation to the whole purpose of the teachings of The Way, let us again examine the definitive statement which conveys to us the very essence of the Gospel -- and especially the Revelation of John: "Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie" (Rev 22:14-15 NKJ).   If the text of the Revelation represented the end of the world, as is commonly believed by the majority of Christians today, then we must pose the question: Why are those who remain outside the city portrayed as "dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie"? Armageddon, then, indicates the disciples personal tribulation described as the "pangs of birth", as he endeavors to overcome his own lower carnal nature through the crucifixion of what is symbolized by the flesh, in order that he can possess the Knowledge of the fruit of the Tree of Life, transcend the natural barriers of this world, and "enter through the gates into the city".  

  The Law Of Action And Reaction - All Actions Initiate An Opposite Re-Action:  When we open the hood of a car and we say the word engine, the functioning of that engine is the result of many very different processes all working together in an optimum performance.  In many ways the mind functions in a parallel perspective.  Intelligence is derived out of man's ability to perceptively-understand from many diverse perspective.  In the same way that an automobile engine has many diverse an seemingly separate functions all performing their task in order to support the running of the engine -- and if any of these separate functions is inhibited, then so too is the functioning of the whole negatively affected -- the same is true of the attempt of the mind to function from the foundation of Wholeness (see Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness ).

It is not until we understand that mankind is presently dwelling in a realm of Duality -- where opposite polarities of the same consciousness can and must interact with each other in order to evolve to Wholeness -- that we can begin to understand the separate functions that must be brought together to bring about Wholeness of Mind and Being.  Therefore, we must pose the question: Why is the One comprised of the Many -- and the Many are often found in conflict with each other?  Because each action has an opposite reaction -- and each solution intimately imposes movement in the opposite manifest polarity.   And in understanding this reality, it then must be understood that when an action is initiated, a corresponding (re)-action is initiated in the opposite polarity.   The Soul, or our True-Self, is a Being of Light -- but what is the Source of this Light?  The intensity, depth and substance of the Light of the Soul is drawn from the balance of positive (male) and negative (reflective) spanning all the lives that Soul has ever lived.  All Soul-Growth is achieved through the interaction of the opposite polarities (positive/negative - male/female) which manifest in the Third-Force of Mind -- all of which is powered and animated by the Vital Life-Force or Bio-Energy of the Spirit.   At a Soul-Level of Being, no growth can be brought about because the opposite polarities of positive/negative male/female is balanced within the Mind of the Soul.  Wherefore, the Soul must incarnate into lives where the polarities of the Divine Pattern (positive/negative and male/female) are divided and appear separate, so they can interact and gain experiential knowledge.   And in the same way that the two sides of the heart while separate, remain dependent upon their opposite, so too does the polarities of positive/negative (male/female).  

In the same way that the contraction of the two atrium chambers of the heart initiate the contraction in the ventricles, in this divided reality every action initiates a reactive-action in its opposite polarity.  Which means that every word, and every action you make, initiates an opposite polarity action that MUST BE BALANCED IN THE CENTER OF THE TREE OF LIFE.  When balance and wholeness is achieved, then growth and development is brought about.  When the active and reflective opposites cannot be balanced within one's own self, then the action becomes externalized -- which in the parable of the prodigal son, is portrayed as the squandering away of the inheritance on "riotous living".   But because the loss or externalization is stamped with what can be portrayed as the imprint of our Spiritual DNA, it MUST return back to us -- and this process can and does continue until Wholeness and Completion is achieved. 

We cannot even begin to envision the above process without first understanding the connection that exists between all of mankind and all of Creation.  The problem is seen in the fact that organic (natural) man who is "born blind" to his own higher reality (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ), cannot even begin to understand his own higher Soul-Reality and the Ćtheric Connection between all of mankind.  One of the most important realities that organic man is blind to, is the reality of Mind.  With our physical vision we cannot directly see Mind -- yet it not only exists, but we can observe the results of mind in the actions of mankind.  Yet, the more we develop Wholeness of Mind, the more we develop the ability to perceive Mind -- becoming aware of the Mental Bodies that surround Man's physical body as a personal atmosphere.  With each breath we polarize the body through positive and negative cycles of Mind.   And as the mind of the person begins to evolve to a more mature level of consciousness, the person is able to begin to perceptively-observe not only the Mental-Bodies that surround each person, but also the Ćtheric-Connections that connect individual groups of people together -- and especially the Morphic-Field that Unifies the opposite polarities of a man and women who enter into a Divine Marriage.   That Organic Man is blind to these higher realities of Mind and Spirit -- but has the capacity of develop his expanded perceptive-sight -- is portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas in the words: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".

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 they 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.   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 Ćtheric (Field) dimensions that man in his natural organic condition cannot.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  And this expansion of organic human perceptive-vision and 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.  And this immaturity of mind and spirit causes the vast majority of believers not to comprehend an important overlooked and not understood Bible passage states in reference to the Higher Reality of God that mankind is blind to: “‘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).  If we indeed "...live and move and have our being" within God, then what is our true relationship to God?  When we put the foregoing together with the statement by James Jeans that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”.  Or the words of Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.  What is portrayed is a higher reality that few people are even prepared to contemplate -- much less, understand with sufficient degree to even form a realistic opinion.

An Enlightened person who understands the Natural Laws of Creation, understands that God is not a being who is separate from man -- but is the very Consciousness within which we move and have out being.  Perhaps one of the best teachings (which was removed from the canonical Gospels by the Church), has been preserved in the outlawed Gospel of the Nazirenes, and is known as the parable of the fishes (quoting): "And there were certain men, of doubtful mind, who came to Yeshua, and said to him, You tell us that our life and being comes from God, but we have never seen God, nor do we know of any God. Can you show us whom you call the Father-Mother, one God? We don't know if there is a God. Yeshua answered them, saying, Hear this parable of the fishes. The fishes of a certain river communed with one another, saying, they tell us that our life and being is from water, but we have never seen water, we don't know what it is. Then some among them, wiser than the rest, said, We have heard there dwells in the sea a wise and learned fish, who knows all things. Let us journey to him, and ask him to show us what water is. So several of them set out to find this great and wise fish, and they came at last to the sea where in the wise fish dwelt, and they asked of him. And when he heard them he said to them, O you foolish fish that don't contemplate! The few of you who seek, are wise. You live, and move, and have your being in the water; from the water you came, to the water you return. You live in the water, yet you don't know it.' In a similar manner, you live in God, and yet you ask of me, 'Show us God.' God is in all things, and all things are in God."  

Does a fish see the water?  No.  They only see the physical form of the objects that exist within the water -- or in the analogy of the fish, the the water is the Reality of Mind within which all the physical objects exist.   At a deeper level, all of Mankind and Creation exits -- and is intimately connected -- within the Mind of God.  And while, like the fish, organic man can only see the form of the physical objects, because organic man is blind to the Reality of Mind and Spirit, we fail to see that “‘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).  Which has been confirmed in the words of James Jeans that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine” -- and the words of Arthur Eddington who is portrayed as an astronomer, physicist, and mathematician who did his greatest work in astrophysics.: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.        

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

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

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

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

Building upon the Foundation that we are all expressions of the Divine Mind -- and at a deeper level of Consciousness, we are all connected -- the higher reality of our life in this world is that each of us is evolving through the interactions with others souls, begins to unfold --  and when it is understood that all our words and actions initiate their opposite polarity that, IF NOT BALANCED AND WHOLE  within us, is released into the outer world and eventually comes back upon us.   Only when we begin to perceptively understand the deeper connection of all souls -- and we begin to grasp the higher realities of the life that we are presently living -- can the spiritual/esoteric meaning of the Sermon on the Mount (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tj_X0rdBQDM -- SEE ALSO http://TheGift.nazirene.org/ ). 

In the same way that modern science has confirmed the existence of Spirit which it portrays as an UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ) -- and has therefore confirmed the validity of the analogy of Plato's Cave which portrays mankind as only being able to perceive SHADOW-IMAGES generated by the UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ) -- and perhaps even more important is the reality that science has now proven  the connection of Mind and Spirit between physical bodies/objects. 

In Gary Zukav's book -- the title of which is taken from the Chinese expression for physics, wu li, which he translates as “patterns of organic energy”, and writes: “Bell’s theorem not only suggests that the world is quite different than it seems, it demands it. Something very exciting is happening. Physicists have ‘proved’ rationally that our rational ideas about the world in which we live are profoundly deficient”.   What therefore is Bell's Theorem?   Bell’s theorem, which was proposed in 1964 by J.S. Bell, a physicist working in Switzerland, was first confirmed experimentally in 1972.  Physicist Henry Stapp, in a 1975 federal report called it the most “profound discovery of science”.  Bell’s theorem succeeds in exhibiting the bizarre nature of the subatomic world.  Experiments show that if paired particles which are identical twins in their polarity fly apart, and the polarity of one is changed by an experimenter, the polarity of the other particle changes instantaneously.  Thus, even though from a physical perspective the two particles appear to us as separate, it has been proven that the particles remain mysteriously connected regardless of the fact that there is no physical connection.  

Why is the reality of Bell's Theorem portrayed as the most “profound discovery of science”?   The crux of the problem that has limited man's thinking to that of the intellectual dark ages, is found in the statement that the mind of man sees only what he is prepared to comprehend!   And this organic (human) limitation imposed upon our perceptive-vision, inhibits our ability to understand the physical-forms and physical-reality of what we do see with our physical-eyes and senses.  In the above link entitled The True Facts And Realities Of Life, I demonstrate that our organic human vision does not permit us to perceive the Source of the images we see that is generated from an UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD.  While Bell's Theorem has proven the connectedness of the physical objects we do see, our undeveloped and immature physical eyes and senses cannot detect or comprehend the reason and purpose of these (ćtheric) connections.  And the fact that Bell's Theorem not only proves that the physical images we see with our physical senses are connected, but also that the physical objects are affected by the mind of mankind in ways that the vast majority of people don't understand -- unless they consciously develop the ability to perceptively-gaze into what modern science has portrayed as the UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD.  And most importantly with respect to the findings of Bell's Theorem, that what we imagine we see is affected by our own thinking, is demonstrated in the text of Itzhak Bentov’s book which reveals that: “The quantum theory asserts that there is no way one can measure some sets of things, like momentum and position, together very accurately... because the consciousness of the experimenter interacts with the experiment itself.  Therefore, it becomes possible that the attitude of the experimenter must also influence the outcome of any particular experiment” (Preface to Stalking The Wild Pendulum, by Itzhak Bentov).  

Quoting the Widipedia article on Bell's Theorem: "The title of Bell's seminal article refers to the 1935 paper by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen that challenged the completeness of quantum mechanics.  ...After the EPR paper, quantum mechanics was in an unsatisfactory position: either it was incomplete, in the sense that it failed to account for some elements of physical reality" In the same way, Einstein experienced shock when he first came into contact with the new emerging 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.”  What this means is exactly as stated by Einstein when he stated: “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).  What is being stated is that the primary focus of science where only what was seen with one's physical eyes, has now been rendered inadequate and incomplete -- it being focused totally on observable matter -- because the emerging body of facts and evidence now demonstrates that what we perceive physically, is a projection from an UNSEEN Source where True Reality exists.  Which provokes the question: What is being projected?  Thus, the statement by astronomer James Jeans: “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” -- both demonstrate the reality that there is nothing but Projected Thought.   Which means that you are a thought that is being projected in this world by your True-Self that dwells in the reality of an UNSEEN CAUSAL FIELD. 

Bell's Theorem proves and demonstrates that physical bodies/objects and people are connected on a deeper level -- which in the above is portrayed as the Ćtheric Field of Mind and Spirit.  When it is understood that while we cannot perceive it with our immature and undeveloped physical eyes that are blind to the reality that we are all connected on a deeper level of mind and spirit -- and all our actions initiate a corresponding (re)-action from their opposite polarity -- AND, all initiated actions are marked with our Souls Spiritual DNA --  if an action and (re)-action cannot be balanced within our own mind through the Gateways ("narrow strait gate") of the Tree of Life, the externalized (re)-action MUST be perpetually returned back to us -- until it is able to be balanced within us.  When 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) -- it must be understood that these strengths and weaknesses are the direct expression of the victories and/or defeats that enable each of us to bring about Wholeness in our generated words and actions.  Each time we initiate an action, and are unable to balance our action with its corresponding (re)-action opposite polarity generation, we not only suffer loss -- portrayed as the loss of our inheritance in the parable of the prodigal son -- but we become anchored to the thinking and carnal realities of this world.  

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 Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan had attempted to explain, was that in their Soul's previous lives, those who perished in the Holocaust "were reincarnations of the Souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done.”   Which the mystic Isaac Lauria had explained when he 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.”  But this could also have been explained in the Gospel teachings when Jesus stated at Matthew 5:23-26:  "But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell. So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God."   And then, with the foundational teachings on the pre-existent Soul removed from the Gospel, it has become impossible to understand the warning which follows the foregoing: "When you are on the way to court with your adversary, settle your differences quickly. Otherwise, your accuser may hand you over to the judge, who will hand you over to an officer, and you will be thrown into prison. And if that happens, you surely won't be free again until you have paid the last penny."  And what this means is that until you have rectified all debts against the Soul of your brother or sister to whom you have incurred a debt, that the two of you will continue to be brought back together -- in similar circumstances -- until the debts have been resolved and forgiven -- and you will remain in this self-imposed Prison -- unable to advance into a more spiritually mature condition which would enable you to begin to receive the Divine Manna or Sacred Knowledge -- until which time the debts that were incurred, have been released from your Soul. 

In the Epistle to the Corinthians Paul commands to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- but how can such a reality be achieved?  The answer is to bring about Wholeness in every action, which permits one's thoughts and actions to be drawn into and through the "narrow strait gate" of the Tree of Life.  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 made Whole.   Which is why Paul tells us to "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17 KJV).   When it is understood that every action is subject to Judgment( "...your accuser may hand you over to the judge" )  -- which is determined by our ability to bring about Wholeness to our Actions (see Everyday Is Judgment Day http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#JudgmentDay ) -- and that our actions that can't be brought into Wholeness anchor us to this world as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son -- which MUST be redeemed "...and you will be thrown into prison. And if that happens, you surely won't be free again until you have paid the last penny".   And because ultra-important teachings were removed and suppressed in the Original Gospels, modern believers cannot understand the above -- and/or the process that brings it about in our lives. 

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.  The Church Father Origen who was known as "the prince of Christian learning" in the third century, second only to the Apostles, writes that "...to every one according to his merits; nor will the happiness or unhappiness of each one's birth, or whatever be the condition that falls to his lot, be deemed accidental" (see Predestination ).  Why?   Why are the conditions of one's birth not deemed an accident?   Because there are no accidents as the Atheist and Secular Humanist mindset promotes.    Origen then goes on and writes with respect to each person's station in life "...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 [person] 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, as stated in the foregoing, each person's birth into this life is determined by that person's own past actions -- i.e., "...either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor".   Or, as stated by the Apostle Paul: "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7 NIV). 

If the person's thoughts, words and/or actions cannot be brought to Wholeness within the mind and body of the person -- and as explained and explored above, the opposite polarity or (re)-action is externalized and imbued with the imprint of that souls Spiritual DNA -- then often that soul must be born in accord with the physical embodiment that will permit the soul to retrieve the lost externalized aspect of in a future life.   If a man abuses and/or rapes a woman, that imprint of self carrying his soul's Spiritual DNA cannot be restored back to him as a man -- so he will have to be born as a women in order to restore the loss of his essence when he abused and/or raped a woman (or women).  And his abusive actions towards a woman remains embedded in that man and woman's Ćtheric bodies "...till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing” (see The Reality Of Mind http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#TheRealityOfMind ).  

When Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount to turn the other cheek, and to forgive all who abuse and persecute you, these statements were presented as a matter of the Natural Laws of Consciousness.  When you are attacked by another person, you turn the other cheek and/or forgive the abuser so as not to become a part of his karmic imprint which must be repaid and balanced in the future.  When you forgive, you shield yourself from being imprinted in your own Ćtheric Field by the aggressors externalized imprint of his Spiritual DNA, which protects you from being a part of the other person's necessary process of retrieving their externalized imprinted aspect of self that was lost in that person's inability to balance their (re)-active actions.  This cycle of action and reaction has been portrayed as The Karmic Wheel.  One account was provided by a woman in one of our Spiritual Forums where she explained: 

"I was born understanding Karma.. and how to jump off the Karmic wheel when the understanding and compassion of how to, comes into your life....
or your mind...  What he did to me with the knife and the continuous assault for three months or more, was a debt he owed me...... when I went IN TU IT (employed her intuition) and found out what I had incurred upon him before, when we were together in another lifetime my heart and my mind totally understood this ...totally ...when I had this flash of insight and my body also remembered I called him on the phone to let him know ...that I understood.  I asked him if he had a few minutes to speak to me....... reluctantly he said, YES...... I then proceeded to tell him that I FORGAVE him for all he did to TO ME, and that I understood why he did it.  He was speechless..... for about 30 secs and then said to me Janet I don't know what to say .......... how can you forgive me?  I said well I can I know why you did what you did and I am calling you now to let you know I forgive you totally and completely.  I then proceeded to explain to him that I am jumping off this wheel with him now, because I have come to that place on my path...... that I understand the why's and how's of why he did it.  I told him I love you unconditionally and will always love you unconditionally.  He said what? I said unconditional love is the first and most important lesson any soul can learn.  I said Thank you for bringing me that lesson and doing your JOB really well.  From this lesson you gave me, I have learned much.  I am now telling you I am off this wheel with you, one of us had to learn.  I did ........... I send you love, compassion and peace. May you find peace and happiness in your life, and now I am gone from it.  I love you, take care.  End of conversation".
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(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.

 

 

 

 

 

@@@ copied 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Without our bio-energy or vital life-force upon which our consciousness is maintained and our body is animated returning to our Source within us through the Center of the Tree of Life, the bio-energy is channeled externally into the outer world.  And because our bio-energy is imprinted with our Spiritual DNA, it must be returned back to us.   And if the opposite polarities of this bio-energy which is channeled through our words and/or actions can't be accomplished in this present cycle of life or Soul-Breath, then it must be reunited and returned in a future life or Soul-Breath.  @@@

 

In the vast majority of cases, one of the plights of man can be seen in the reality that most people have never had what can be portrayed as an Original Thought.  Most of their thinking which for good reason has been categorized as "race mind" -- wherein, the mind is for the most part flooded with a perpetual array of meaningless random thoughts and rhetoric drawn from outside themselves.    An Original Thought is one that has been uniquely drawn from within -- can be acted upon -- balanced and whole between the inner and outer self -- is able to bring the upper and the lower together -- and can be raised up through the "narrow strait gate" of the person's essence of mind.  The Mind is nourished and transformed by Original Thoughts that have the capacity to deepen and expand the consciousness of the person.  In the same way that some foods can be categorized as junk-food -- other edibles can be seen as a detriment to the body -- only what can be categorized as Original Thoughts can nourish the mind in a similar manner as a proper diet that stimulates growth and development.  And without nourishing Original Thoughts, the mind of the person remains obstructed and flat-lined.  When Paul wrote that the "natural" mind of the Christians who he, himself, taught the "traditions" of the Gospel, were incapable of understanding the spiritual meaning of the essential Gospel teachings, it was because of their flat-lined cultural thinking and lifestyle that lacked Wholeness and Completion.  And thus, Paul portrayed these baptized and confirmed Christians as carnal and immature: "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).   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).  Maturity of Mind and Spirit cannot be achieved by being taught in our traditional manner of instruction.   Neither can the mind develop through the process of deepening and transformational expansion, through a Linear learning environment.      

Wholeness requires that every action MUST be Threefold-Whole within itself -- or the action itself will initiate an opposite polarity reaction  -- and this opposite polarity reaction must be restored to the original initiating action.   What does this mean?  Thought is an expression of Mind -- and therefore, cannot exist apart from the positive and negative polarities of energy that manifested it.  Both words and actions are thoughts that have been manifested externally.   In the Epistle to the Corinthians Paul commands to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- but what does this mean?  And 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 - see Judgment Day - Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being ).  Idle words can be defined as those thoughts or impressions which cannot be drawn through the "strait gate" -- and therefore cannot be returned to the Source in the upper and lower Kingdom spheres of the Tree of Life.  Which is why Paul tells us to "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17).   Perpetual prayer can be defined as positive thoughts of a higher expression that is able to be drawn up through the "strait gate" -- invoking the process of expansion and deepening of our Mind.  And when properly understood, the finding and discovery of self is the primary objective of all scriptures (see An Inconvenient Truth).  And when we add to this the statement from the Gospel of Philip that "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die" -- we can see that most people are walking a road to nowhere.              @@@

Implications of ignorance of The Law of Octaves: How far-reaching is the impact of these Natural Laws that affect all of Creation?  In its modern corrupted form, Christianity sees virtually all of life through the lens of sin.  Yet, the foundational doctrine of Original Sin was imported into the Church (see The Folly Of Original Sin: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#OriginalSin ) -- and has no place in the Original Gospel teachings.  Therefore, when Christians tell you that all men need to be redeemed by a savior because man cannot keep from sinning, their inability to cease from sin is the result of the Natural Law manifest in the Law of Octaves that tests their condition and growth-progress.  And while Jesus taught his disciples how to prevail over the Natural Testing of the Law of Octaves --- thereby enabling them to break down the Inner Barrier of Mind (see http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#MentalBarrier ) that separates the person you are in this world, from your True-Self that because of the limitations of this realm, cannot fully manifest in this physical life.  What Jesus taught was how to bring about the condition of Wholeness in the physical, that enabled them to enter the Inner Kingdom.  But the Gentile Church which was based upon the tenets of Mithraism, suppressed and threw away this essential knowledge of the Natural Laws.  Which resulted in a man-made obstacle to following and inheriting the Promise of the Gospels.  When Jesus said: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV) -- wholeness can only be achieved by understanding and prevailing over the (Natural) Laws -- i.e., "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). 

What if men and women sin, because the Laws cause them to engage in what many religious leaders would define as sinful behavior?  How/why?  It is because of the workings of the Laws that create the dilemma of the lack of a half-tone between the third and fourth interval of an octave progression, that inhibits Christians from living a Christ-like life where they cannot keep from sinning.  So, from a very limited perspective, Christians are correct, then, when they proclaim that man by nature is a sinner -- but it is because the Church threw away the Key of Knowledge, that they do not possess the ability to overcome their sinful ways. Thus, the Christian Church is plagued by the very sin they committed when they hunted down and murdered the original followers of Jesus and the people of TheWay as heretics.

In the Gospels Jesus teaches the three causes of being born blind (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ).  And unless a Christian understands and prevails over the third-to-fourth and seventh-to-eighth Interval in the Law of Octaves, they will not only remain blind and unable to see and understand anything beyond the incomplete allegorical shadow-images of this realm, but they will remain incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of the Gospel, as well as their own higher Soul-Reality.  

Ignorance of the Laws of God impact every aspect of our lives.  Marriages fail because of these same Laws-- i.e., men and women cannot remain faithful to the same partner.  Natural man cannot know God because of these Laws.  All religions and man-made institutions of both church and state -- as well as the Christian Church -- always turn upon their First Principle Essence and become corrupt, because of these Laws which turn an institutionalized church in the direction of the physical, rather than the spiritual.  Natural man is limited to less than ten percent of his potential of mind because of these Laws.  Most people lack necessary Soul-Memory, and because they dwell in an amnesic state of mind (see Spiritual Amnesia http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#SpiritualAmnesia ), they remain alienated from their own pre-existent soul.  They therefore remain unaware of the previous lives their soul has lived -- they are blind to the causal factors of the very life they are presently living -- and they are unaware of their true spiritual potential, because of the impact of these same Laws.  We cannot clear our mind of meaningless random thoughts -- or hold and focus on a thought -- because of these Laws.  Most people are destined to live lives of meaningless carnal pursuits, because of the workings of these Laws in their mind and body.

If we ask the question: How pervasive is the impact of these Laws that we can hear and observe in the musical scale?  The answer is simply astounding: We constantly dwell in the Presence of God, but because these Laws impact and limit our vision, we remain totally unaware of our Creator and True Source of Being.  We dwell in a twelve dimensional universe -- and yet, we can only vaguely perceive three dimensions, because of the workings of these Laws.  Our every movement in this life is controlled by a past that we can't remember -- a present that we are fundamentally unaware of -- and a future we are totally ignorant of -- because of these Laws working upon us.  We are walking the road to our eventual destiny -- and yet, we cannot see beyond the moment, because of these Laws.

One of the most ignored teachings in the Gospels is in the statement that, “‘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).  What does it mean that we "live, move, and have out being" within the Mind of God?  Put this together with the statement by James Jeans that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”. Or the words of Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff” (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ).  And you have portrayed a higher reality that few people are even prepared to contemplate -- much less, understand with sufficient degree to even form a realistic opinion.  But when rightly understood, what is being portrayed in the foregoing -- i.e., that we live and have our being within the Mind of God, is exactly what is taught in the Gospel of the Nazirenes, and is known as the parable of the fishes (quoting): "And there were certain men, of doubtful mind, who came to Yeshua, and said to him, You tell us that our life and being comes from God, but we have never seen God, nor do we know of any God. Can you show us whom you call the Father-Mother, one God? We don't know if there is a God. Yeshua answered them, saying, Hear this parable of the fishes. The fishes of a certain river communed with one another, saying, they tell us that our life and being is from water, but we have never seen water, we don't know what it is. Then some among them, wiser than the rest, said, We have heard there dwells in the sea a wise and learned fish, who knows all things. Let us journey to him, and ask him to show us what water is. So several of them set out to find this great and wise fish, and they came at last to the sea where in the wise fish dwelt, and they asked of him. And when he heard them he said to them, O you foolish fish that don't contemplate! The few of you who seek, are wise. You live, and move, and have your being in the water; from the water you came, to the water you return. You live in the water, yet you don't know it.' In a similar manner, you live in God, and yet you ask of me, 'Show us God.' God is in all things, and all things are in God."

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

We remain blind to the higher reality of the Soul and Spiritual Natures (see The Three Causes Of Organic Human Blindness) -- as well as the fact with respect to God that “‘For in him we live and move and have our being’"  -- because of our inherent organic human blindness.   As stated in the Gospel of Thomas: "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."   Thus, All REALITIES lie before your very eyes, but without the necessary development of mind and the Spiritual Eyes of the Heart, you will remain blind to the Kingdom that lies before you.   The early Christian Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the heart.   "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints" (Eph 1:18).   And that Paul wanted very much to speak about the Mystery of the Gospel to the Ephesians, but could not, is the reason he portrayed himself as an ambassador in bonds: "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak" (see Eph 6:19-20). 

In symbolic form, the secrets to understanding the workings of these Laws are imbedded within the allegorical text of the Torah, or Law of Moses -- with the solution to the dilemma of the Laws explored in the Gospels. The problem is because of the effect of the Natural Laws upon the consciousness of the person who fails to embrace the process portrayed as TheWay in the Gospels, it would be impossible for the reader to understand the workings of the Natural Laws upon their mind and consciousness.  While Christians proclaim that they are exempt from the Law in what they call the Old Testament, because they are ignorant of man's true reality, they are literally drowning in the sea of Law that will bring about their own spiritual demise. While it is true that Jesus came to save them, his followers were required to keep his Commandments. Thus, the words of Jesus: "Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14 KJV). Because modern Christians do not keep his Commandments, and fail to imitate the life of Christ and become a genuine disciple, they make themselves apostates from the Law of God -- and therefore they will find themselves being judged as law-breakers -- i.e., "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).  When rightly understood, the Laws that Jesus is making reference to, are the Natural Laws of Consciousness that work and function within our own Mind and Being.   

Christians not exempt for keeping Law: With respect to the Law, Jesus said: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished" (Matt 5:17-18 NIV).  Christians ignore these profound words because they possess absolutely no understanding of the Law of God which they claim to champion.  Are Christians exempt from the Law? In answer to this question Jesus warned those who would call themselves his followers: "Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:19 NIV). Every day people who call themselves the followers of Christ not only break the commandments, but teach others to ignore the Laws of God.

In the time of Jesus the Pharisees were a people who attempted to live every aspect of their lives in accordance with the Law of God.  Using the Pharisees as a standard, Jesus warned those who desired to be his followers that their righteousness had to exceed that of the Pharisees: "For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:20 NIV). What was Jesus saying? Surely he was not ordaining a life where those who called themselves his followers could live lives addicted to sex, carnal sensuality, extreme materialism, and every other sort of excess imaginable? In total conflict with modern Church doctrine, Jesus warned the people that they not only had to live in accordance with the Law of God, they also were required to embrace the spirit of true righteousness. Thus, at Matt. 5:48 Jesus taught they had to be as perfect as their Heavenly Father -- the bottom line of which means that they had to be Whole.  And to be Whole, believers must fulfill the Law: Directly preceding the above verse in the Gospel of the Nazirenes -- which Gospel was hidden away and escaped the corruption of the scriptures by the Church of Constantine -- Jesus further warns those who would call themselves his followers: "Verily they who believe and fulfill The Law shall save their souls, and they who do not shall lose them"
Why would Jesus say these words? Why isn't belief and faith in Jesus enough to be saved? The answer is quite simple -- i.e., the teachings of The Way is a spiritual revelation that can only be received by genuine disciples of the Light who had achieved Wholeness. By walking in The Way, the disciple is connected with the indwelling Source of Spiritual Knowledge that instructs the genuine follower how to overcome the laws of the earth that limit man in his natural organic (carnal) state.  While the Pharisees kept the Law in an outward ritualistic manner, in not turning the Law within themselves in search of the inner Kingdom of God (see Luke 17:20-21), they fell short of what is required. The followers of Jesus, on the other hand, were warned that they had to be genuine disciples of the Light who ceased to be bound by the limitations of this temporal world.@@@

It is important to remember that music is merely a representation of the Laws that control the Universe and Creation in the form of sound that we hear. Like the paired particles, a sound that is played here, resonates harmonically, as well as in parallel realms where we are unable to detect the corresponding sequences. Thus, music exists, because it is a manifestation of Law that we perceive as sound.

   The Trinity - Divine Pattern - Linear vs Intuitive Development Of The Mind: Within each of us there is a conflict being waged between the Linear and Intuitive Spheres and Forces of Mind and Consciousness that form the outer columns of the Tree of Life.  When rightly understood, the separation of man and woman as personified in Adam and Eve from the Wholeness of the original pattern of Mankind as AdamEve as personified in the allegorical creation account in Genesis, is in fact the externalization of this inner conflict.  What has been confusing to Bible students is the fact that there are two very different Creation accounts in the beginning of Genesis (see The Laws of the Two Creation Accounts and how they intimately effect all of mankind ).   In the below I will demonstrate that in the first Genesis Creation Account, man and woman existed in Oneness -- as does our Higher Soul-Self that is the True Being that we are.  And the separation of male and female did not come about, until the second Genesis Creation Account.   Which provokes the questions: Why does this conflict exist?  And why has the inner conflict been externalized?  The Answer: So we are forced to deal with this inner conflict that consumes us and renders us mentally-impotent and spiritually undeveloped.   The condition of most  men can be portrayed as a total subjection of the inward looking (feminine) Intuitive Spheres of Mind by the outward looking (male) Linear spheres of mind -- thereby making mental development and spiritual advancement impossible beyond a certain low-level of Mankind's potential, because of the atrophied condition of the (feminine) Intuitive Spheres of Mind which the (male) Linear subjugates and shackles in silence.  But, with the externalization of the Feminine Intuitive in the embodiment of woman with equal power with the Male Linear -- along with the overwhelming appetite of sexual release and completion -- renders it impossible for the Male Linear to ignore and not interact with the Feminine Intuitive.   

When rightly understood, Man and Woman are equal -- but equal does not mean the same -- and their equality is expressed from their opposite paradoxical polarities of mind and being.  From the perspective: Show me your strengths, and I'll show you your weaknesses -- the reality that a male can easily overpower and physically subjugate a women, is in fact a weakness that consumes every part of his being.  Therefore, woman's separation as a "help-meet", is to overcome this inherent weakness that inhibits his growth and development.  And what this also means is that the violence against women and the subjugation of the feminine in the many forms that it takes, is in reality an externalization of the inner violence of mind that exists within each of our consciousnesses.  When the equality of the sexes is understood -- and the fact that because of man's positively charged lower (physical) nature that enables him to control, enslave and subjugate woman who is negatively charged in her lower (physical) nature -- the equality of the paradoxical opposite genders must be understood and realized from their respective areas of strength versus the weaknesses of their gender opposite.  The power of man's lower positively charged lower nature can be portrayed as a raging river -- the force of which makes it impossible to swim upstream and return back to the source.  Woman not only possesses the ability under the right bonding conditions to reflect this raging power, but has the innate ability to transform it, and return it back to him on a higher plane of mind and being where he is of a negative/reflective/reflective polarity -- thereby enabling the two to achieve the necessary Wholeness of Mind and Being.  The key word in the foregoing equation is "right bonding conditions" -- which means that unless Wholeness and Completion is achieved between the perspective man and woman, the necessary conditions do not, and cannot exist.  And this is also true with respect to the (male) Linear and (feminine) Intuitive Spheres of Mind within each of us.  And it is for this reason that in the Genesis account, woman is portrayed as man's most immediate savior (see Woman As Man's Help-Meet And Savior).   Man and Woman are the embodiment of dynamic halves of the (paradoxical) Whole -- and in the same way that man needs woman on one level, woman needs the power of man on another level.  And it is this lack of bonding and wholeness that is the cause of unfaithfulness in marriage -- which in the allegorical account of the scriptures, is portrayed as resulting in death.

In the same way that because of his polarity, a male is more powerful than a woman on one level, it is also true that a female is more powerful than a male in different areas of mind and being.  And when a man who by virtual of his gender-polarity possesses greater physical power, subjugates and enslaves a women whose greater power is manifest on a higher plane of mind and consciousness, it is the man who is in fact being deprived of the very Life-Giving Impressions that he needs to become Whole, Complete and enter into Life.  And it is this absence of the Feminine Impressions that inhibits the True Advancement of Man, keeping him bound by his lower earthly nature and animal-consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature).   And when rightly understood, this interaction of male and female Impressions which is the key to all mental and spiritual development beyond the most immature of human levels of consciousness -- and is manifest in the merger and reunification of the opposite polarities and powers of mind as manifest in the respective male and female divided opposites in the Wholeness of the Restoration of AdamEve.  Because few men can successfully deal with the inner conflict of the (male) Linear and (female) Intuitive Spheres of Mind -- permitting the reunification of the Three Lower Earthly Kingdoms with the Three Upper Heavenly Kingdoms -- all true mental and spiritual growth and development has been externalized in the relationship of the opposite polarities of Man and Woman.   Which means that when rightly understood, the Life-Giving Fruit of the Tree of Life, is the Impressions of Wholeness that brings about mental and spiritual growth when what is personified as Adam and Eve is restored to their original reality of AdamEve -- 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 the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Knowledge of Good and Evil) that brings death to the eater thereof, is the separated Impressions of a divided Adam and Eve.   Which means that the true purpose of sexual intercourse between a man and woman, is to initiate and maintain this connection between the two externalized polarities of mind manifest in the the divided paradoxical opposites personified in Man and Woman -- thereby acting as a catalyst in the restoration of AdamEve (man and woman) in the Wholeness of Mankind which is personified as the union making the "one flesh".  And it is this Wholeness of body, mind and spirit that Jesus was making reference to when he stated: "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).   Which means that the True and Only path into Life, is to achieve the necessary Wholeness and Completion that is personified in the Original Gospel Teachings that was totally rejected by the Church (see The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).     

The Trinity: In the same way that in the first allegorical Creation account of Genesis male and female exist in Oneness -- and this is also true in the higher reality of the Soul of Mankind where the polarities of male and female exist in Oneness and Perfect Balance (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- in the same way that Eve was drawn from the side of Adam, Mother-God was drawn from Father-God -- and while on one level the separation is and continues to be Internal, it is this separation of the two polarities that brought forth the Mind or Logos of God to become the active force of Creation.  Therefore, to say that God is One is true -- while on another level it is paradoxically true that the Two Polarities of God have the ability to function separately and express themselves United through the Logos or Son of God.  Consciousness is the product of the Two Polarities functioning together through the Third-Force of Mind.  If the two polarities of Creator-God did not exist, then the Third-Force Balance of Mind (Logos or Son of God) could not exist.  And just as important is to understand that because of the Divine Pattern, the Logos or what is portrayed as the Son of God retains the pattern of "XY" -- male and female.      

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 holographically the embodiment of the Trinity -- which is manifest in the paradoxical opposite Linear and Intuitive spheres of mind which are representative of the outer columns of the Tree of Life.  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 word 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 (positive/active) and Female (negative/reflective) polarities did not exist in the Reality of Creator-God, then Consciousness could not exist in the Mind (Logos) of God. 

Mind and consciousness functions through a flow and presence of (electrical) energy.    In order for an electrical flow to exist, there must be negative and positive polarities.  When you use an appliance, the appliance is plugged into a source of electrical energy (positive and negative) that come together separately and flows through the appliance.  Mind, or Consciousness, can be portrayed as the appliance that is utilizing the positive and negative energy flow to bring about and maintain Consciousness.    An EEG is a means to test electrical activity in the brain.  An EKG measures the electrical activity in the heart.  This electrical energy is a means of testing what can be portrayed as bio-energy or vital life-force upon which the consciousness of man 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.  A bird can sit on a power line -- a squirrel can run on a power line -- and so long as they don't contact the two polarities of power together, they will not be electrocuted.

The power of the one polarity (positive/male or negative/female), is always limited by the power of the opposite polarity.  If one leg of a circuit (positive/male or 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.  Why is this important to understand and recognize?  In the case of man and woman, if either the man or the woman is inhibited from developing, then their opposite cannot develop beyond that 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 if the woman or feminine polarity 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 the 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 because the two polarities are intimately connected, any movement in one polarity, initiates a like movement in the opposite polarity.  In the example of the human brain: 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.  And when rightly understood, this lack of development has many cultural facets.  While a woman's thinking and abilities of mind are opposite to that of a man, 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.   One cannot exist without its opposite -- and it is impossible to be a father without a mother -- or a son/daughter without the interaction of the two. 

That this world is a realm of allegorical symbols impressed into the forms of matter, is why it is written: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..." (Gospel of Thomas).  We have often heard the adage to Know Thyself.   But what does it mean?  What is the Self that we must discover and know?  Our Soul or True-Self exists in a twelve (12) dimensional reality.  And it is for this reason that this realm in which we are presently dwelling is portrayed in the Gospels as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness ) -- which in its parallel portrayal of the analogy of Plato's Cave, what we perceive with our physical senses is portrayed as "shadow-images" projected into this world by an UNSEEN higher reality.  Why is what we perceive with our physical senses portrayed as "shadow-images"?  Because the higher twelve (12) dimensional source cannot manifest in this three (3) dimensional realm -- so what we perceive is an allegorical image of the UNSEEN Source that is projected into this realm.  And what this means is that there is nothing but Mind -- and all the forms of nature, including our own physical bodies, are all three dimensional allegorical images of a higher reality that cannot be fully manifest in this realm.   This reality is confirmed in the words attributed to Paul in the Book of Acts where he explained: “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring’” (Acts 17:26-28 NKJ).  Thus, Paul's words that "For we are also His offspring’” -- and the reality that "...for in Him we live and move and have our being" must be understood that what is being portrayed in the present environment of the world in which we are presently dwelling.  

Carnal man can only perceive the three-dimensional allegorical images -- and in his "natural" organic state of mind, is incapable or perceiving or understanding the Source of the images he sees with his physical senses.  Therefore, organic man has a very limited and incomplete perceptive-understanding of not only his True Twelve-Dimensional Self, but also this world and God.   And in acknowledgement of his inability to perceive man's true higher reality, Paul portrays mankind as too carnal to comprehend his own higher Soul-Reality -- i.e., "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ).   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).   In his very limited and incomplete perception of self and this world, carnal man envisions God as a Being that is separate from himself, perceptible to the senses, that can be communicated with in the manner that people communicate with each other. Yet, the vision of the poets that Paul quotes above is actually known as pantheism -- i.e., the idea that we not only dwell in the body-mind of God, but that all things are actually made up of part of God’s body.  This connection is documented in the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary for this verse where it is written: “This is the first half of the fifth line, word for word, of an astronomical poem of Aratus, a Greek countryman of the apostle’s and his predecessor by about three centuries. It is found also (nearly as here) in a religious hymn of Cleanthes of Troas, a contemporary of Aratus. But, as our speaker hints, the same sentiment is to be found in other Greek poets. They meant it, doubtless, in a pantheistic sense”.  

The Soul or True-Self of mankind 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 three-dimensional 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 in our True-Form 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 man or woman 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) -- and this morphic field that a unified man and woman have the power of creating, creates an atmosphere which immerses the male/female opposites into what has been portrayed as "one flesh".   It is not that the flesh of the man and woman becomes physically joined -- but rather, the man and woman have the innate ability to create a personal atmosphere (of mind) manifest in an Ćtheric Field that connects the two gender-polarities together.  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 their own atmosphere of Higher Mind.  And in the same way that the Soul is a Being of Light because the polarities of male and female exist in a state of balanced Wholeness, the morphic field that creates a mental-atmosphere which immersed their physical form, has the ability to make the man and woman Complete and "one flesh"

The Soul evolves as greater Light is manifest.   The Light of the Soul is dependent upon the evolution of the Male and Female Polarities within the Soul.  But since the male and female opposite polarities can't interact and gain experiential-knowledge in the higher twelve dimensional Realm of Souls, the polarities of male and female must be projected into a realm such as this world where they can interact under the illusion of separation.  Therefore, 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).   In the pattern of the Tree of Life at the Right, in the same way that Eve was drawn from Adam, what is personified as the Earthly Kingdom was drawn from the Heavenly Kingdom --  thus the Heavenly is Male in relation to the Earthly Female -- and they are connected through the outer male/female columns of duality (Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil) -- and the Center is the Third-Force Balance of the Tree of Life.  But even more important is the reality that the Light and Evolution of the Upper Heavenly Kingdom is limited to the Evolution and Oneness with the opposite polarity in the lower Earthly Kingdom.  And Wholeness can only be accomplished when the Seven Spiritual Centers and the Twelve Spheres of Mind become manifest in the Center -- i.e, the Love Sphere -- and this is the Love and Wholeness that Jesus personified in the Gospel. 

On a Higher Soul-Level of being, 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.  Because of the holographic pattern of Creation where the pattern of the Whole is replicated into all its parts, this same Divine Pattern exists within us -- but because we exist as a fragment of the Soul, the twelve spheres of mind within us is not the same as the Mind of the Soul.  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 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 woman 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 or 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 their 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 or Creation account 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 (woman) 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 existing in a state of Oneness -- 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 that is founded upon what has been portrayed as the Trinity.   Mind is the product or offspring of the two polarities of Creation (male/positive and female/negative) brought together.   Holographically, both the male/positive and female/negative polarities are themselves imbued with the same pattern, and therefore have a consciousness containing the two polarities within themselves.   But because of the segregation of the polarities on a lower level of Creation, the consciousness of the man or woman is limited.   In the same way that you can't see the mind and consciousness of a man or woman, neither can you see or observe the mind and consciousness of a man and woman who have been joined through a morphic fieled together as "one flesh".  With your physical eyes and senses, you can't see the morphic-field that a man and woman create through their Union -- but this morphic-field exists as a personal atmosphere that immerses the man and woman and enables them to mentally exist on a higher plane than those who remain three-dimensionally earth-bound.  Moreover, it is impossible for those who remain earth-bound in their divided male or female projected three-dimensional reality, to perceive or comprehend what the man and woman who have been immersed in the atmosphere of their self-contained morphic-field to see and comprehend.   Paul portrays the three-dimensional divided man or woman as being of an "animal-soul" level of organic natural consciousness (see Animal-Soul).  And it is therefore impossible for organic man to comprehend not only his own higher soul-reality, but also God.     

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 Reflective-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) which is portrayed in the doctrine of the Trinity as the Son 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”.   The "riotous" living drains our bio-energy or life-force off into Nature -- and does not permit our bio-energy to be channeled within us in the development of mind.  And it is therefore 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) stages of the 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 United States 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).  While it is true that we were created in the "image" of Creator-God, 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 or 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 vacuum -- 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 immediate interest in family or child rearing, young boys are looking at girls primarily as a sexual outlet.   Our culture has rejected all traditional values, and has ushered in the age of what can rightly be portrayed as sexual recreation.  And if, as a result of sexual intercourse the girl becomes pregnant, this is often resolved by abortion.  As the physically 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.  Further, many males are of the opinion that when a female initially says "no", that she really wants to be seduced into relenting to sex.  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 or coerced 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 think of forced or coerced sex as rape -- and see it only a normal or typical part of the male/female sexual relationship.   When a young girl says "no", that is interpreted as she wants to be seduced.  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, co-ed academia 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 -- but they are never told because of the feminine void within the male that inhibits their own mental 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, 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 in the Homilies of 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 that has been set forth under an allegorical facade-- 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, Jńāna in Sanskrit means "knowledge" -- but, like the Greek word Gnosis, the word Jńāna 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 territory -- which includes claiming the females as his own.   He does this by engaging in sex with the female -- thus, creating and ćtheric 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 (Ćtheric) Field that surrounds the physical body -- and therefore, the Mind which is in the Unseen (Ćtheric) 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 (Ćtheric) 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 Ćtheric (Field) dimensions that man in his natural organic condition cannot.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  Moreover, when Jesus told her that even the man she was with at present could not be her husband in the genuine spiritual meaning of the word, what he was conveying was that because of the polluted environment that she has permitted her body to become, she was incapable of having a genuine husband.  Since on one level you stay connected to 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 Ćtheric 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 Ćtheric 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 Ćtheric 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
