Within the domain of science there is a revolutionary conflict being waged between what can be portrayed as Dogmatic-Scientism and actual Scientific-Fact that has proven the foundational doctrines of science that are being taught by academia to be gravely in error.  Why?  Modern cutting-edge science has confirmed the wisdom of the mystics who embraced the adage to Know Thyself -- but because our True-Self can be portrayed as Metaphysical, the foundational structure of modern science refuses to recognize their own Revealed and Acknowledged Truths and Facts.  What the vast majority of people portray as science, is actually Scientism -- and because few students of science understand the difference, those who believe that what they embrace as scientific fact have been intellectually deceived.  Why?    Scientism is defined as "...an ideology that promotes science as the only objective means by which society should determine normative and epistemological values" (see Wikipedia).   In the article Science Versus Scientism (see https://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/science-versus-scientism/ ), it is stated: "Scientism is a dogmatic ideology which presumes that 'science,' in the narrower sense of the word, has the answers to all questions. For believers in scientism the claims of metaphysics are invalid and have no bearing on reality. The physical cosmos is all there is. There is nothing but three dimensions (or four if we include time as a dimension) which are perceived with our five senses. This is all there is and this is therefore all that is worth studying."   Scientism excludes and ignores whatever is not three-dimensional and physical -- and therein lies the problem. 

 In the words of Nobel Prize winner in Physics Niels Bohr:  “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.”  This statement of Niels Bohr is perhaps clarified by Werner Karl Heisenberg who was a German theoretical physicist, and one of the key pioneers of quantum mechanics, where he stated “The smallest units of matter are not physical objects in the ordinary sense; they are forms, ideas which can be expressed unambiguously only in mathematical language.”   Which confirms the mathematical wisdom of Pythagoras. Giordano Bruno and G.I. Gurdjieff, as portrayed in the words of Nikola Tesla who stated that "If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration".  And the recognition that it has long been acknowledged by the mystics that can see what lies beyond the limitations of the organic consciousness of mankind that if you want to see the Source, then you must develop and change the frequency and vibration of your own mind in order to see and understand what is beyond the perceptive-vision of organic (carnal) man.  The foregoing statements of Niels Bohr and Karl Heisenberg is further confirmed in the words of Max Planck who is portrayed as the originator of modern quantum theories and one of the most important physicists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, winning the Nobel Prize in Physics, who explained: “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.”  Further explaining that: “I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness.”  And these findings of the physicists confirm that what man sees as concrete matter, is a projected thought of a "conscious and intelligent mind" that the mystic and spiritual visionary portrays as God.  Thus, that we exist in the Mind of God, and 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 verses 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).  Mystics are able to explore the Mind of God, because they develop those attributes of mind which enable them to make the inward Journey to the Source.  That the Gospels are an allegorical blueprint of Mind, and is used by its author's as a text-book for those striving to make the inner journey in the discovery of Self and the Source of all that exists, is why Jesus taught that the Kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:20-21).  And that there are Natural Laws that monitor and test our mental development, step by step, level by level (see The Law Of The Gospels http://TheLawOfTheGospels.com ), insuring that we are prepared to understand our own higher Soul-Reality (see http://BeingOfLight.com ), is why those who fail to develop their inward-looking attributes of mind, are incapable of comprehending both Self and the Source of Life in which we dwell.  Which is exactly why a student begins at the elementary grade school level of instruction, and is not enrolled in university doctorate degree programs.  Which means that when science ignores the metaphysical, they are in fact ignoring the Source of all that they see and interact with in this life. 

The Universe is a Great Mind: The often ignored cutting-edge voice of the modern researcher has proven that the Source of all that you see -- including your own Self -- is all metaphysical.  What this means that what we see with our physical eyes and senses, is a type of shadow-image that is being projected from an UNSEEN METAPHYSICAL SOURCE.  Which means that (1) the most advanced researchers have proven the non-metaphysical foundation of traditional science to be gravely in error; (2) this body of advanced researchers have confirmed the portrayal of the analogy of Plato's Cave to be true; and (3) the wisdom of Nikola Tesla has now forced Scientism to begin to acknowledge their past foundational error when they rejected the Metaphysical Source of the deceptive shadow-images of physical matter.  What was it that Nikola Tesla stated?  In the same way that Nikola Tesla correctly stated that "If you wish to understand the Universe you must think ...in terms of frequency and vibration", he was again correct in his position that if you desire your mind to be able to tap into the Source of Universal Knowledge, then you must enable your mind to vibrate at the Frequency that opens the door to this Higher Metaphysical Source of Knowledge that he Intuitively recognized.  What this means is that our physical minds are attuned to the frequency of what is perceived as physical-matter -- i.e., confirming the findings of Astronomer Arthur Eddington that “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff” (Astronomer Arthur Eddington). 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."  Which has more recently, described as “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source. 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.” (Cyberneticist David Foster). But what this means is that like the mystic, if we develop those attributes of mind that permit us to perceive a different non-physical "frequency and vibration", that we will begin to see and understand the UNSEEN METAPHYSICAL SOURCE -- the frequency of which is beyond the spectrum of organic consciousness. 

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

Quoting from The Findings Of The Physicist; and  http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#FindingsOfThePhysicist below: Einstein declared after one discovery, "If it is correct (Quantum Mechanics) it signifies the end of science" (see Marcus du Sautoy, The Great Unknown: Seven Journeys to the Frontiers of Science).  When physicist Walter Thirring stated in his book, Urbausteine der Materie about the nature and reality of physical 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” -- what he was confirming is that what man sees with his physical eyes, is an image that has been projected into this world of appearances from an UNSEEN CAUSAL FIELD.  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.

Just as has been proven by the emerging body of advanced researchers, the analogy of Plato's Cave states that mankind is blind to the (metaphysical) source, and only perceives what is portrayed as shadow-images that are projected into this world from an UNSEEN (METAPHYSICAL) SOURCE.    Where the dogma of Scientism searches for man's origins and source in the fossilized earth, in their refusal to embrace the findings to the most advanced researches which openly acknowledges that the person we are in this world is a projected shadow-image that is Metaphysical and Spiritual -- just as portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave and its parallel teaching in the parable of the prodigal son.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The only real conflict between science and religion is seen in the fact that the multitude of scientists fail to comprehend the true depth of science, and the vast majority of religious people in the world fail to comprehend the true depth of their own religion.   And for purely political reasons, this prevailing junk-science is taught to our children in schools, while spiritually disenfranchised dogma is preached to the people in the churches.   Enlightened people are the few who know that once the depth of both science and religion is revealed to the mind, that all Creation becomes One Unified Thought and Expression. 

There Are Exceptions To The Prevailing Ignorance

Astrophysicist  Robert Jastrow, who was the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies wrote in his book, God and the Astronomers, that “The scientist has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.” 

"After religious teachers accomplish the refining process indicated they will surely recognize with joy that true religion has been ennobled and made more profound by scientific knowledge. The situation maybe expressed by an image: Science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind" Albert Einstein

“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”. The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav.

“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” (Astronomer James Jeans)

“The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”  (Astronomer Arthur Eddington).  More recently,  described as “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   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.”   (Cyberneticist David Foster)

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.”  These “…mechanical conceptions” make reference to Darwin and the theory of evolution.  

“The present scientific establishment has grown somewhat fossilized by its current world picture and is locked into a view of reality that has outlived its usefulness.  It has begun to limit mankind’s growth and has so increased its sense of specialization, separateness, materiality, and mechanical computer-like functioning that it is in real danger of self-extermination” (William A. Tiller, Materials Sciences Department, Stanford University).

 "Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning."
Mahatma Gandhi

Those who fulfill the adage to Know Thyself -- i.e., their True-Self that is not of this world -- can do and accomplish virtually anything.  What Jesus is quoted as saying in the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" -- is basically synonymous with the wisdom on the Delphic Oracle: "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."

All the answers to life exist within you -- and the only limitations that man has are those he sets for himself.  With respect to the above quotation by Astrophysicist  Robert Jastrow  “The scientist has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”  -- not the religion of the Church and theologians -- but rather, the Mystics who are the Source of all spiritual teachings that the Church has condemned as heretics.  While science has progressed and evolved to the point where a very select few have proven the wisdom of the Mystic that this is a shadow-realm of a higher reality that many Mystics have portrayed as Spirit or a Heavenly Source Realm, the modern cutting-edged scientist does not yet possess the knowledge to enter the Spiritual Source Realm.   Yet, while mystics such as Plato taught his followers how to gain semi-access to the Source through the process of Anamnesis and learning from man's inner Higher Self, only the historical man Jesus taught his followers how to actually enter the Source Realm which the Mystic calls Spirit -- as stated in the words of the visionary and author Philip K. Dick who could recall his life as a first century follower of Jesus when he said: "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here.  He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)."  Of this Higher True-Self, Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote "...the human soul is immortal, and immensely vast and beautiful; our conscious ego is slight and limited in comparison to the soul, despite the fact that we habitually mistake our ego for our true self" (see Emerson's Oversoul http://SoulSelf.org#RightsOfMan#RightsOfMan#RightsOfMan ).   And in like manner, in The Ten Principles Of Gnostic Revelation Philip K. Dick writes: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor...".  And it is this Higher Source-Self that is not of this shadow-world, that the modern scientist must now turn to, in order to learn and acquire the ability to enter the Source Realm that Jesus taught his followers how to enter.  

 

 

If a man is born ignorant of his True-Self,

to parents that are ignorant of their True-Self,

in a society that is ignorant of man's True-Self,

lives a life of self-ignorance and eventually dies in self-ignorance, then ignorance is the norm.

So, indoctrination can be called education, hypnotism can be called entertainment, criminals can be called leaders,

and lies can be called truth, because his mind was never truly his own.

 

 

The Mental-Shackles Of

Faux-Science And Fallacious-Religion

 

While both academia and organized religion have portrayed our present day culture as knowing and enlightened, from the perspective of our true potential, modern man dwells in a state of self-ignorance and alienation from both the True Being that we are and our True Reality.  While we think of our culture as being advanced and even enlightened, in view of the fact that we no longer possess the Wisdom of Enlightened wise men and women of our more distant past, our assessment of our present culture is a canard that we promote in a state of self-ignorance.  While it is true that we have made wonderful technological advances that we did not have in the past, unless a successful life can be defined by the buttons we push, the movies we watch, or the people we text, then the advanced technology must be defined as a distraction.   So long as we remain ignorant of our True-Reality and the purpose of the life we are living, we will be confronted by the fact that when we pass from this life, we will be forced to acknowledge that our modern culture dwells in a state of Intellectual Poverty -- i.e., 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". 

When we hear the adage of wise men of the past to Know Thyself, the statement provokes the questions: Other than the person we have come to be as seen in our physical image reflected back to us in the mirror, what is there to know?  The vast majority of people in our modern culture would not be able to understand even why such a statement as Know Thyself is made.  If we use the example of the proverbial iceberg, the person we see reflected back to us is a fraction of our True-Self -- and when the ancients of great wisdom expressed the need to Know Thyself, what was expressed was the need to perceive and understand the Mind and Consciousness that we are an embryonic fragmented reflection of -- often portrayed as the false-self, the ego-self, and the earthly-self.  Which provokes the question: If this is true -- and our True-Self remains beyond our vision and perceptive-understanding -- then why is the unseen self an enigma to us?  Unless we can factually answer this question, we will remain counterfeit with respect to our True Soul-Reality. 

The bottom line is this: Without understanding the Journey of the Soul and the purpose of the experiences of this life, it will remain virtually impossible to comprehend the realities of the life that we are presently living.  If I were to say that our True-Self -- i.e., our Soul-Self -- has existed since the dawn of time -- and because of the self-ignorance of man in his organic condition of mind, then the statement would be true that the vast majority of people only develop at a snails pace.  Which means that the question then becomes: How many lives of limited value and accomplishments are you willing to live -- totally alienated from your True-Self -- aimlessly wandering in a state of abject ignorance, in what has been portrayed as The Valley of the Shadow of Death?  On the meaning that is personified in these words it is written: "A symbolic description of the world, meaning darkness and death are (symbolic) valleys on earth one must walk through as part of the human experience".  

In the Gospels Jesus portrayed this world as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ).  The Wikipedia states that: "In Christianity, the outer darkness is a place referred to three times in the Gospel of Matthew (8:12, 22:13, and 25:30) into which a person may be 'cast out', and where there is 'weeping and gnashing of teeth.'"  Stating that until the person makes change in their lives, that they will remain in the the death of this realm.  From a biblical perspective (see Bible Study Tools) it is written: "The Hebrew word translated 'shadow of death' is used poetically for thick darkness (Job 3:5), as descriptive of Sheol (Job 10:21; 12:22; 38:17); figuratively of deep distress (Job 12:22; 16:16; 24:17; 28:3; 34:22). In the last three passages the American Standard Revised Version has "thick darkness" and "thick gloom"); Psalms 23:4, the Revised Version margin "deep darkness (and so elsewhere)"; 44:19; 107:10,14; Isaiah 9:2; Jeremiah 2:6; 13:16; Amos 5:8; Matthew 4:16; Luke 1:79, skia thanatou). The Hebrew word is perhaps composed of tsel, "shadow," and maweth, "death," and the idea of "the valley of the shadow of death" was most probably derived from the deep ravines, darkened by over-hanging briars, etc., through which the shepherd had sometimes to lead or drive his sheep to new and better pastures".  What this means is that each person who has been personified in the Gospels as the lost prodigal son/daughter, will remain in the darkness of the valley of the shadow of death or Far Country, until they bring about the necessary changes and advancement within themselves -- regardless of how many lifetimes is required.  And this higher Soul-Reality is why the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen stated:  “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis). 

When the question is posed: Did the Jews in the first century believe in the pre-existent soul?  Meaning, did your Soul exist prior to your birth into this present life.  The Hastings-Scribner Dictionary Of The Bible (New York, 1903. Bk 4, p. 63) "To affirm that Jews in Christ's time did not believe in pre-existence is simply incorrect" And that the journey of the Soul over the course of many lives was an important element of discussion between Jesus and his disciples, was the reason the question was asked: "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).   In view of the fact that the Gospel teachings evolved out of the Essenes (see The Essenes And The Dead Sea Scrolls http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#Essene ), the witness of Josephus who was a contemporary of the man Jesus who lived among the Essenes stated that the Essenes “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again.  For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”.   Why did the Essenes believe that their Souls are Immortal and can be united to many physical bodies across the span of many lifetimes of Soul-Development?  Because their foundational mindset and lifestyle opened their eyes and minds to their Soul's Higher Reality that organic "natural" man is blind to.     

Fortunately, a segment of modern Science has begun to prove the validity of the Wisdom of the Mystic (see Science Proves Spiritual Truths) -- but because academia rejected and abandoned core scientific principles, and has programmed students with Scientism and suppressed the authentic tenets of genuine Science (see Wholeness And The Cosmology Of Mind http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#WholenessAndCosmologyOfMind ), our educational systems have become a greater detriment to mankind than institutionalized corrupted religious teachings that misguide the vast multitude of faith-based believers.   What is genuine science?  It is the seeking of Truth and Facts without predefined limits and borders.  When the Europeans believed that the earth was flat, they were shackled by their predefined belief that if they sailed out too far west into the ocean, they would fall of the face of the (flat) earth.   Thus, most of science has failed to seek out Truth and Facts because of their predefined limits and self-imposed borders.  

  Science vs Scientism: While the case can be made with respect to corrupted scriptures where the most important teachings were either edited, removed or totally corrupted, an even greater causal-factor of mankind dwelling in a cocoon of abject self-ignorance in our modern day, is seen in the reality that what is portrayed as science is actually Scientism which has suppressed and limited all valid scientific inquiries and research.  Scientism is defined as "...an ideology that promotes science as the only objective means by which society should determine normative and epistemological values" (see Wikipedia).   In the article Science versus Scientism it is stated: "Scientism is a dogmatic ideology which presumes that 'science,' in the narrower sense of the word, has the answers to all questions. For believers in scientism the claims of metaphysics are invalid and have no bearing on reality. The physical cosmos is all there is. There is nothing but three dimensions (or four if we include time as a dimension) which are perceived with our five senses. This is all there is and this is therefore all that is worth studying."   Scientism excludes and ignores whatever is not three-dimensional and physical, and therefore inhibits man from achieving any degree of Wholeness which would enable him to achieve true Enlightenment and Knowing. 

Modern cutting-edge Science has proven that the Scientism that has dogmatically ignored and even denied higher Truth and Knowledge, has been as an anchor that has enslaved mankind in the abyss of abject self-ignorance.  And when understood, Scientism has actually supported faux-religious doctrines that have alienated blind-believers from the very purpose and objectives of the essence of their religious teachings.  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 the present scientific paradigm that is promoted and championed by academia broken?   Being Scientism, it is counterfactual because it is based upon a preordained objective that has been proven to be gravely flawed.   

If the high-priests of Scientism actually told the whole truth, modern man would not dwell in his present state of self-ignorance.  The  words of Carl Sagan when he wrote: "There is no reason to think that the evolutionary process has stopped. Man is a transitional animal. He is not the climax of creation", is embraced by the Atheists to confirm their rejection of religion.  But is the statements of people such as Carl Sagan accurate and reliable?  Take the example of Giordano Bruno who was a Dominican friar, philosopher, and mathematician who was known for his advanced cosmological theories.   Bruno stated that his Source of Knowledge was the Light that exists at the core of the Consciousness of all of mankind -- i.e., Bruno stated 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."   Bruno also explained that while this Inner Light exists within the mind of all of mankind, it is ignored by the vast majority of mankind as seen in his words that "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it" (quoted in Life and Teachings of Giordano Bruno : Philosopher, Martyr, Mystic 1548 - 1600 (1913) by Coulson Turnbull). 

What Giordano Bruno actually stated is that this Inner Light that exists within the essence of the consciousness of all of mankind, was the Source of his Higher-Knowledge.  Yet, Carl Sagan who co-authored the TV Series Cosmos, attributed Bruno's insights to a series of "lucky guesses".   Why?  Because of their adherence to Scientism which only acknowledges the three physical dimensions, Carl Sagan and the authors of the TV series Cosmos were incapable of comprehending what Giordano Bruno stated was his Source of Knowledge.  Why did the body of Scientism censor the statements of Bruno?   Because their foundational mindset and framework of thinking was incapable of understanding how Giordano Bruno could know what the scientists and intellectuals of his time-frame were totally ignorant of (see The Science Delusion http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TheScienceDelusion ).  

Without understanding the Journey of the Soul, our science will continue to be plagued by more questions than it has answers -- our philosophies will remain anemic -- and our religions will remain plagued by a lack of any real substance.   And regardless of the path in life we choose -- i.e., science, philosophy, religion -- it will remain impossible for us to understand the very life that we are presently living.   In the same way that the Atlantic ocean serves as a barrier that separates Europe and the Americas, until recently the world of Scientism has maintained predefined limits and intellectual borders that has inhibited their quest for essential truth and facts -- thereby rendering the scientific community intellectually-impotent.  And because academia has remained within the predefined limitations of scientism's failing to understand the Journey and Reality of the Soul --  embracing a school of thought that can best be portrayed as a new edition of myth in scientism's rejection of boni-fide truth and facts -- our modern culture can rightly be portrayed as based and founded upon a new variety of quasi-superstition and self-imposed ignorance.     

 

 

The Natural Barrier of Mind

In the same way that the Atlantic ocean acts as a barrier between Europe and the Americas, there exists a Natural Mental Barrier between the person you are in this world and your own Higher Mind or Soul-Self -- and this Barrier of Inner Mind has been created by the Natural Laws of Consciousness (see The Application Of The Law Of Octaves And The Trinity ).  In the time of Columbus a ship was required to cross over the barrier of the ocean, in our modern day the air-ship or airplane is the chosen vehicle to circumvent the the natural barrier of the ocean.  When the Cosmology of Mind is understood with respect to the Natural Barrier that separates the Continents of Consciousness within each of us, a type of mental-ship must be developed and employed for a seeker of Truth and Knowledge to succeed in crossing over the Natural Barrier that separates the person we are in this world from our True-Self.   Traditionally, we have portrayed these few who have overcome the Natural Barrier of Mind as mystics -- and it is the mystic who understands that if the latent areas of mind are developed, this enables the person to circumvent the barrier between man's inner Continents of Consciousness. 

Mystics authored the scriptures in an allegorical language that instructs the seeker in how to overcome the inner barrier of mind.  Therefore, 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.  As further 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."  The Gospels are designed to bring about Wholeness -- with Wholeness, greater vision and understanding is achieved -- and with Wholeness, 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..."

To overcome the Natural Barrier of mind that separates the person we are in this world with our inner True-Self, each of us must achieve Wholeness (see Wholeness of Mind & Being ).  And only with Wholeness can the next stage of birth be achieved (see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life ).  Which means that we must fully develop and raise up the opposite polarities of mind -- bringing them together on a Higher Plane -- in order to begin to bridge the Natural Barrier of Mind that keeps us bound in what is personified as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son.      

The folly of Scientism has victimized mankind -- alienating man from the very Source of his Mind and Being.  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).   It is true that "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" -- but in order to bridge the great divide, each of the languages must be understood as representing the fragments of mind that must be brought into Wholeness on a Higher Plane of Consciousness.   

Man's superior intellect is founded upon his great diversity of consciousness which is based upon his ability to perceive reality from many conflicting and often opposite perspectives.  The scriptures were designed to stimulate and bring together all paradoxical opposites of the mind as personified in the diagram of the Tree of Life.  Before we can even begin to understand the scriptures and how they were created to assist the sincere seeker in building a bridge between the Earthly and Heavenly realities, we must first understand the Duality of Mind and how the scriptures must be applied.  One important clue that can be seen as an example in understanding the scriptures is the above statement: "...Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other”.   Which SHOULD provoke the question: Why would God want to inhibit man by confusing their language?  Quoting from The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com :  When Peter wrote to Jacob/James that "...they endeavor to correct the discordances of the Scriptures, if any one, haply not knowing the traditions, is confounded at the various utterances of the prophets" -- the discordances of the scriptures which were often presented in allegorical historical untruths that were intentionally inserted into the text, were carefully placed into the text for an ultra-important reason.   And in many instances, with the removal of these discordances by the scribes of the Gentile Church, the scriptures suffered a loss of their effectiveness in relation to their true purpose and objective.   But just as important is the statement that  "...Wherefore they charge no one to teach, unless he has first learned how the Scriptures must be used".   And herein lies the problem: The modern Christian is absolutely clueless as to "...how the Scriptures must be used"!!!    In fact, if you were to attend a theological university to study the Gospel, you would very quickly be totally alienated from the true meaning of the scriptures.  Which means that the more you are educated by modern academia, the less you will understand the spiritual meaning of the scriptures -- but the vary fact that these quasi-authorities learned their wisdom from academia, is a rejection of the original New Covenant teachings (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ). 

The purpose of the scriptures is to bring about the expansion and deepening of the mind -- i.e., "Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it" (Gen 1:28) -- with the earth representing our carnal earthly self, which must be expanded through the interaction and merging with our Source in the Heavenly.  Which means that the mind must be greatly expanded through the interaction of of the paradoxical opposite spheres that comprise the Tree of Duality -- and this can only be accomplished when both polarities of the paradoxical opposites of the mind are presented in the series of allegorical symbols and catalysts that merge the opposites on a higher plane of consciousness.  In the same way that the term "be fruitful and multiply" can be seen as the offspring of man and women, when the holographic reality of mind is understood, it is the (male/female) paradoxical spheres of mind that enable the mind of the seeker to "multiply" through the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  And in the same way that physical offspring can only be born through the interaction of male and female, this is also true with respect to the paradoxical (male/female) spheres of mind as patterned in the  Tree of Life.   One of the major difficulties in accomplishing this is the reality that each segment of mind that perceives the world not only differently, but often paradoxically opposite, can be allegorically portrayed as speaking and hearing a different and confusing language.

Because of the division of opposites that comprise the ONE, it must be understood that every action on one side of the divide, initiates a reverse paradoxical action in the opposite polarity of the divide that must be brought together and raised up to a higher plane of mind and being.  So, what can be portrayed as a negative action by one polarity, initiates its paradoxical opposite -- and from the opposite paradoxical perspective of mind, what is interpreted negatively is positive.  So, while from one polarity of mind the statement to  "...confuse their language so they will not understand each other”, will be seen as a positive movement from the opposite polarity of mind.  When Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, wrote 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” -- what he was stating was that what the Linear spheres of the mind of man sees as an absurdity, is merely a positive action of the opposite paradoxical polarity of mind. 

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.   Therefore, 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 Human 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.          

In the subheading entitled: The Three Causes Of Human Blindness http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#ThreeCausesOfHumanBlindness , one of the causes of blindness is the organic limitations of human consciousness that must be developed and overcome.  So long as mankind limits his perceptive-understanding to the three-dimensions of the physical, man will remain blind to his own Source of Mind and Being.  To Know Thyself, one must understand the blueprint and cosmology of mind that has the capacity to confuse the vast majority of people.  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.  

Your Higher Soul-Self that is portrayed in the adage to Know Thyself, cannot open an inner door of communication with the person you are in this world, because of the inherent human limitations of mind and consciousness.  Holographically, the pattern of the Whole is replicated into all the pieces that make it up -- which means that if you begin to understand what you see in the outer world, you can then begin to apply this knowledge to your own mental and spiritual development -- enabling you to build the Bridge within yourself with the person you are in this world, with your True Inner Self that is portrayed in the adage to Know Thyself.  And in the Knowledge of Self, all the mysteries of Creation will be revealed to you.   This essential knowledge was well known to the authors of the scriptures -- and they used this body of esoteric knowledge to compose their allegorical accounts where one's own Mind is portrayed in the allegorical symbols used in the textual body of the scriptures. 

While mankind in this life dwells in a three-dimensional reality, your Higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ) dwells in a twelve-dimensional reality that is the foundation of Higher Soul-Mind and Being.  And so long as you perceptively see and understand from the organic limitations of the aspect of mind you are functioning from, your Higher True-Self will remain a distant enigma to you - almost as non-existent.  Therefore, it is important to understand that truth, on a higher plane, is comprised of many lesser truths that serve as the building blocks that elevate the higher truth.  But since the Laws of Creation MUST maintain Balance and Wholeness, each of the 144,000 segments that make up the pattern of mind MUST be manifest across the spectrum of a great number of people -- all of whom are functioning from their individual segment that is a fragment of the Whole.  Therefore, all the virtually infinite perceptive-opinions among men -- including the paradoxical opposite perspectives of the male and female gender polarities --  are all founded upon an analysis and conclusion based upon a perceptive-position from drawn from different area of mind.  Which means that each perceptive-position has a basis of truth from that perspective area of mind that it is drawn from.  Moreover, if you were to somehow negate the area of mind that each perspective-position is drawn from, you would negatively effect the balance of the Whole.  The great diversity of human thinking is achieved by levels of perception drawn from each different and often opposite perspective from every side of the equation.  When this great diversity of singular perspectives is drawn up into a higher perspective with all the lesser perspectives brought together as pieces to the puzzle, this higher assessment is then drawn from a multitude of lesser perspectives. 

Organic man that Paul portrays as "natural" man (see Animal-Soul), is limited by his three-dimensional reality.  When Paul writes: "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) -- what he was stating was that so long as the mind remained restricted by organic human limitations, it would be impossible for the faith-based believers to comprehend the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings, the higher reality of the Soul, as well as the Mysteries of God and Creation.   Because of the three-dimensional limitations imposed upon the mind of man, he is incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul-Reality.   In contradistinction, our Higher True-Self that can be portrayed as our  Soul-Self, dwells in a twelve-dimensional reality that is able to observe and understand from a higher reality and vantage point.   All of the earth-personalities that our Higher Soul-Self has ever lived as, continue to dwell in what can be portrayed as the Soul Mind-Matrix (see below Time And The Enigma Of Self) -- where each lesser-personality of the Soul provides experiential input that is drawn from their unique segment of mind, and then drawn up into a Higher Perception than any one of the lesser-perspectives that make it up.  The lesser unique perspectives cannot be eliminated, because the higher perspective is built upon a mixture and consensus of the lesser perspectives.   In fact, the higher more enlightened perspective is drawn from a greater number of dimensions as the lesser conclusions which are based upon a singular-perspective are drawn together on a higher mental-plane. 

From the perspective of Wholeness, because the Wholeness of the Soul-Mind cannot be manifest in this limited three-dimensional realm, we can observe an almost uncountable number of human-expressions and endeavors that are all an integral part of the Whole.  Different people are drawn into different expressions of humanity, because each individual is polarized to a different area of the Mind of the Soul.  Each one of these diverse human-expressions are necessary, in order to manifest the Whole of Soul-Consciousness.  A great castle is not build by hollowing out a single rock.  A castle is built by bringing together many pieces that support the Whole.  In like manner, an Enlightened Perspective is drawn from a great many fragmented mental building-blocks that form the Whole.  If we were able to eliminate any one or grouping of human-expressions, then we would be negatively effecting the Wholeness of the Soul-Mind.  And because of the limitations of this three-dimensional realm, the Whole of the Soul-Mind cannot be reduced to the level of consciousness that comprises each of the lesser aspects of mind that make it up. 

Why is the above of the utmost importance to the spiritual seeker?  Because it explains and diagrams your relationship to other people -- your relationship to your Higher Soul-Self -- and your relationship to Creator-God.  And without this understanding and positive actions on your part, you will remain organically limited in your understanding.  As long as we remain attached to the thinking of this (three-dimensional) realm, it will remain impossible for you to comprehend from the perspective of your True (twelve-dimensional) Self -- a Self that is an unknown enigma to the vast majority of mankind.  Therefore, in order to begin the process of expand our consciousness, we must begin to understand from each perspective associated with each aspect of mind that comprise the Whole of Self.  Because of our inherent organic limitations, we can not even begin to relate to our own Higher True-Self, because it is impossible for us to perceive and understand from the higher plane of mind and consciousness.  Because our perceptive-thinking is locked into a very narrow and limited aspect of mind, unless the limitations are removed, it is impossible for organic man who is immersed in the partisan and parochial thinking of this very divided realm, to understand or even have anything in common with their True-Self.  And this is why the Gospel statement, "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand", should be interpreted as "Open and unloose the mind, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand" (see http://GateOfEden.com ).   But since the interpreters don't and can't understand how the Kingdom can be found by "opening and unloosening" the mind, they render the interpretation "repent".   

Unless you come to understand the reason for the confusion in the world -- why each person sees and understands life from a different and often conflicting perspective point of view -- and you are then able to Triangulate the differences to initiate the necessary transformation in the expansion and deepening of your own Consciousness -- and bring this complex pattern of mind onto a Higher Plane -- then you will remain bound and shackled by the abject ignorance that consumes this world in perpetual strife and conflict.  

If you are one of academia's foremost scholars and have yet to begin to cross over the Natural Barrier that divides your consciousness, then you know approximately ten percent (10%) of your true potential.   If you are an acclaimed scientist who has published countless articles on scientific theory and what is personified as scientific facts, then you only understand approximately ten percent (10%) of your own potential to know.  If you are a religious expert, then all you possess is ten percent (10%) of the body of spiritual truth.  And even if you possess a far-reaching knowledge of the world's philosophies, unless you have mentally transcended the Natural Barrier of Mind, the vast majority of what you think you know is for the most part worthless speculation.   So long as the depth of man's mind remains anchored to this side of the Natural Barrier of Mind, then you are only functioning at an approximate level of ten percent (10%) of your true potential.   And in most instances, the very shackles that bind and inhibit your intellectual abilities and level of knowledge, is the very foundational beliefs that you have been programmed with as a child, and continue to cling to.  To quote the words echoed by virtually all the wise men and women throughout the history of mankind when they are made reference to the Supreme Axiom in the words, Know Thyself -- and the wisdom in the statement of the Gospel of Thomas: "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".  

By definition, a Philosophical or Spiritual Axiom is presented in the statement of fact: An axiom is an irreducible primary. It doesn't rest upon anything in order to be valid, and it cannot be proven by any "more basic" premises. A true axiom can not be refuted because the act of trying to refute it requires that very axiom as a premise. An attempt to contradict an axiom can only end in a contradiction.   And without crossing over the Natural Barrier of Mind and coming into the presence and knowledge of man's True Self, once again the words of the Wise Men and Women of our past is in perfect harmony with that wisdom presented in the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty". 

The core of every valid spiritual religion is the process that the seeker must embrace to cross over the Natural Barrier that renders all of organic natural man ignorant and alienated from their True-Self.  The author and visionary Philip K. Dick once wrote with respect to the original disciples of Jesus that:  "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here.  He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)."   What does this mean?  When we make reference to Plato in the below article, what Plato accomplished was to bring about the ability to attain the necessary second-vision often portrayed as the "eyes to see", to gaze into the UNSEEN Source of what organic man sees with his physical eyes and senses.  In contradistinction to what Philip Dick portrays as mystery religions, Jesus taught Wholeness to the degree that the subsequent stages of birth could be achieved, thereby permitting the seeker/disciple to simultaneously dwell in both the UNSEEN SOURCE, while still manifest in this world -- i.e., often portrayed as the "poor ones" (Ebionites) to the ways of this world that fulfilled the axiom to "Be in the world and not of it".   When Jesus said: "Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom" (Matt 16:28) -- even stating that, "Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place" (Matt 24:34).  Paul stated that the time was so near, that a man should not even return to his wife: "What I mean, brothers and sisters, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they do not" (1 Cor 7:29).   And Peter writes that the seeker has the ability to hasten or quicken the coming of the Kingdom (within them): "You ought to conduct yourselves in holiness and godliness as you anticipate and hasten the coming of the day of God" (2 Peter 3:11-12).  But the vast majority of Christians have no understanding of what is being portrayed in these statements, because like the Jews who threw away the Key of Knowledge, they interpret the scriptures literally/historically, and they look for the Kingdom to come in the outer world -- instead of within them.  Unlike Plato and many of the other mystery religions that prepare the seeker to gaze across the Natural Barrier and observe the UNSEEN SOURCE, the Original Gospel Teachings prepared the seeker/disciple to overcome their Inner Duality, and by achieving the subsequent stages of birth, become At-One with the Indwelling Logos (Mind of God). 

Before being corrupted by pagan Rome, the primary purpose of the Gospel Teachings was to overcome the Natural Barrier between this world that is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- also, the Far Country in the parable of the Prodigal Son -- by overcoming our inner duality and division.  And this fact is demonstrated in the Second Epistle of Clement where this ultra-important teaching that was removed from the Gospels that 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, that Jesus taught that "...hour by hour" one was to expect the Kingdom -- and that when the seeker/believer brings this condition of duality overcome 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 expected Kingdom which is often portrayed as the End Times, would and could only come when the teachings set forth in the Original Gospel was fulfilled and the 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 also contained in the Gospel of Thomas as well as an Epistle from an elder to a congregation of believers in the first century  time-frame, could not be contained and understood in a letter or epistle to a congregation today.  And this fact is merely one example of the reality that the thinking and man-made doctrines 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?

As a seeker/disciple, when you fulfill the statement when "...two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”, you will have prevailed over the inner division and the Natural Barrier within you -- you will have connected what the modern physicist portrays as the "blemish" with its source in the Ćtheric Field -- or in the analogy of Plato's Cave, you will have seen the Source of the shadow-images cast upon the walls of this world as personified in the Cave of Illusions.   And unless your scientific theories -- your lessons from academia -- your cultural philosophy -- or your religion conveys to you how to prevail over your inner duality and overcome the Natural Barrier within you -- then you are being led by blind guides who are imprisoning you with the shackles of abject ignorance.   


 

 

 

The Opening Summary

The Conference For Consciousness And Human Evolution

London, Aug 22nd - 24th 2014

"Know Thyself - The Higher Reality Of The Soul And The Cosmology Of Mind And Being”

 

In our Natural State, we are Beings of Light -- our souls evolving from sparks in the Divine Mind -- to a Fullness that few men have even been able to contemplate (see SoulSelf.org).   In the beginning, Natural Law came into being and was invoked, and this Natural Law will insure that every individual soul will evolve to its Ultimate Spiritual Destiny (see The Laws Of Creation ).  We were Created in the Image of God, and dwell within a Holographic Divine Pattern that is replicated into all aspects of Creation.   All that exists within the Macrocosm, also exists within us as the microcosm.   When rightly understood, the scriptures were authored by Mystics (see An Inconvenient Truth) who had successfully overcome the limitations of what can best be realized as the Illusions or Allegorical Allusions of Plato's Cave, which the Gospels portray as the "outer darkness" of Mind and Being (see Outer Darkness).   And because mankind dwells in a Holographic Reality, the authors of the scriptures could employ the symbols of the scriptures as catalysts which had the ability of connecting man's outer realty which he experiences in this world, with his inner reality in order to attain Wholeness and Restore the connection to his Higher Soul-Self -- enabling him to walk the earth in his true form as an Enlightened And Anointed (Messiah/Christ) Being of Light.   Therefore, all the prophecies that have been allegorically set forth throughout the world's scriptures and sacred writings, are making reference to the Coming of the Kingdom within us, as we climb the proverbial Jacob's Ladder and achieve the condition of Wholeness to evolve through the necessary subsequent stages of Birth.

The Gospel of Thomas declares: "When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".  The Gospel of Thomas does not proclaim that if you don't know God, you dwell in poverty -- because it is impossible to Know God, without first fulfilling the ancient adage to Know Thyself.   And man cannot know the higher reality of his Soul, until he re-forms the Divine Pattern portrayed in the allegorical account of Adam and Eve, into a Condition of abiding Oneness within himself. "The soul...", writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions”. (see Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila).

Our souls -- i.e., our Higher Soul-Self -- is asexual, in that it is the balance of all that the Fullness of Man and Woman Embodies -- dwelling in Perfect Harmony and Wholeness.   And while we exist in this world as an embryonic image of our higher soul-selves (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image ), so long as we remain divided across the spectrum of the polarities of male and female, it will remain virtually impossible for us to embrace our Ultimate Destiny.   Because of the Holographic Divine Pattern, each of us was born into this world as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm that must be reunited within us, in order to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (GateOfEden.com).   In the Gospel of Thomas the disciples posed the question to Jesus: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" To which question 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."  In order to enter into what is portrayed as the Kingdom, you must achieve the subsequent stages of birth, and become a Child of the Kingdom -- i.e., "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"   This teaching and reality on how to achieve the necessary subsequent stages of birth is not understood today, because the teachings were removed from the Gospels and suppressed (see The Mystery Of The Children). 

The historical man Jesus overcame and prevailed over the Laws of Creation within himself -- thereby achieving a condition of Anointed Oneness with the Indwelling Logos (Mind) of God.  Having prevailed over Self, the historical man Jesus then taught his disciples to accomplish the same within themselves.  In what is known as the Epistle of Peter To James it is written that if this sacred esoteric knowledge that was imparted to the disciples of Jesus was to become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"!  Fortunately, the body of sacred esoteric knowledge remains preserved within the allegorical text of the scriptures -- which when used as the Key of Knowledge and turned within self, has the potential to open the "narrow strait gate" within mankind that gives entrance to the Inner Kingdom.   For almost 2000 years, those few who possessed this body of sacred esoteric knowledge were deemed heretics who were hunted down and silenced.  Yet, in the revolution of time, those few who possessed this body of knowledge are now free to openly speak of man's higher soul-reality and the Kingdom, without the threat of death.  And thus, mankind is on the cusp of entering an Enlightened Age where he can once again walk in the Garden with the Lord.

 

 

 

 

 

Paul wrote: "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18 KJV) -- which provoke the questions: How do we look at the unseen?  While understanding what is seen?  And this reality is presented in the Gospel of Thomas statement "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you".  Which provokes the question: How can we see what is hidden when we recognize what is in our sight?  Just as important is the findings of the emerging body of modern physicist who portrays the images we see as the facade of a "blemish" or shadow-image of the "outer darkness" or shadow-image in Plato's Cave of illusions.  Which means that the physicist has fundamentally confirmed what the mystic has maintained all along.  Why?  Because we dwell in a divided three-dimensional realm, and what we are perceiving with our very limited earth-bound and generated senses, are aspects of mind that are presented to us in allegorical imagery.   That the source of the projected image exists in a twelve-dimensional reality that can't fully manifest in this three-dimensional realm, means that what se perceive with our physical senses is an incomplete allegorical symbol of the unseen and un-manifest source.    Which means that only when we begin to understand what we see -- with the allegorical meaning of the form of the imagery -- only then can we begin to "Recognize what is in [our] sight...".   And only then can be begin to perceptively-comprehend the higher twelve-dimensional source that appears to our senses what the physicist portrays as a "blemish" within the unseen Ćtheric Field.

If you think you understand the Facts of Life, then I will demonstrate in the following that you are most likely lacking the knowledge of one of the most important Facts are Life that few people understand.  Thus, one of the most meaningful and paramount questions that has the capacity to cause you to re-evaluate all that you think of life: Are you your physical body?  Are you the reflected image that looks back at you in the mirror?  Are you really a man or woman?  A member of a certain race or culture?  Is there a higher purpose to the life you are presently living?  Wise men throughout man's history have expressed the need to Know Thyself -- what does this mean?  If I am not my True Self, then what am I? 

  The Findings Of The Physicist: Einstein declared after one discovery, "If it is correct (Quantum Mechanics) it signifies the end of science" (see Marcus du Sautoy, The Great Unknown: Seven Journeys to the Frontiers of Science).  In the words of Nobel Prize winner in Physics Niels Bohr:  “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.”  How can what we consider to be real, not be real? This rather profound statement of Niels Bohr is perhaps clarified by Werner Karl Heisenberg who was a German theoretical physicist, and one of the key pioneers of quantum mechanics, where he stated “The smallest units of matter are not physical objects in the ordinary sense; they are forms, ideas which can be expressed unambiguously only in mathematical language.”   How can the units of matter not be "physical objects in the ordinary sense"?  But in reality they are "forms, ideas which can be expressed unambiguously only in mathematical language” Which statements confirm the mathematical wisdom of Pythagoras. Giordano Bruno and G.I. Gurdjieff, as portrayed in the words of Nikola Tesla who stated that "If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration".  And the recognition that it has long been acknowledged by the mystics that can see what lies beyond the limitations of the organic consciousness of mankind that if you want to see the Source, then you must develop and change the frequency and vibration of your own mind in order to see and understand what is beyond the perceptive-vision of organic (carnal) man.      

When physicist Walter Thirring stated in his book, Urbausteine der Materie about the nature and reality of physical 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” -- what he was confirming is that what man sees with his physical eyes, is an image that has been projected into this world of appearances from an UNSEEN CAUSAL FIELD.  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.   In like manner physicist and Nobel prize winner John Archibald Wheeler stated that "every item in the physical world has at bottom ...an immaterial source and explanation ...that all things physical are information-theoretic in origin and that this is a participatory universe".  What this means is that what you see physically, conveys an (allegorical) explanation pertaining to the "...immaterial [UNSEEN] source" that is projecting the physical image of what we see with our physical senses.   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."  And more recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The holographic reality says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space. The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”  And this largely inconceivable reality is confirmed by Einstein in the quotation to the right where is speaks of our physical presence as the manifestation of frequencies -- i.e., "We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos.  We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music".

What this means is that what appears to be concrete matter is merely a vibrational frequency of generated-thought that your holographic brain interprets as concrete physical matter.  And because the Source that is generating the image is beyond your brains perceptive-spectrum of frequencies, you are unable to perceive the Source of the appearances you are seeing that you erroneously interpret as concrete physical matter.  But what this also means is that your physical body is a projected thought from an UNSEEN SOURCE that lies beyond the perception of the holographic frequencies associated with our physical self.  Which gives an entirely new meaning to the ancient wisdom to Know Thyself.   

If what we see is a projected image from an UNKNOWN SOURCE that is beyond our physical senses to perceive and investigate -- i.e., what the modern physicist portrays as a "blemish" created by the intersecting forces in an UNSEEN Field -- then we must pose the question: What does Higher Reality look like?   Until we are able to gaze into, or enter into the Source-Field, we don't know?  And so long as we are totally reliant upon our physical senses, we will remain unable to answer this question.   What this means is that the true reality of what we see with our physical senses, spans a multi-dimensional reality where the Causal Factors exist in an UNSEEN REALM that projects incomplete and even allegorical images into this physical realm where mankind interacts with these projected images -- the Source of which, exists in an UNSEEN dimension that physicists portray as a (Ćtheric) Field.  What this also means is that there exist Unseen Causal Factors and Laws that are the direct Cause of what we perceive with our physical eyes and senses.  And just as important is the reality that what we portray as scientific Facts, is not only multi-dimensional, but these facts span an Unseen Reality which both the Source, and man's higher reality, lie beyond our vision and organic natural understanding.  So, when we make reference to scientific or physical facts, we must be cognizant of the reality that the True Facts of Life exist in an Unseen Source that is beyond over physical perception and understanding.  Which means that so long as we remain unable to gaze into the Unseen Field, we remain totally ignorant of the Causal Factors of the very life we are living -- as well as the Causal Factors in the world about us.  And so long as we remain unable to perceive into the Unseen-Field-Source, everything be think we know is merely blind-belief.  The bottom line of the emerging reality is that Nothing Is Solid and Everything is Energy and Consciousness (see https://www.powerofpositivity.com/physicists-prove-that-nothing-is-solid/ ).

  Science Acknowledges Blindness Of Organic Man: In the above Findings Of Physicists, (see http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#FindingsOfThePhysicist ), modern science has acknowledged that what the mystic portrays as Spirit, not only exists and is the UNSEEN SOURCE of the physical images that we see and interact with in this world, but that organic man sees only the projected-image, and is blind to the higher reality of the SOURCE.  In the same way that there exists sound frequencies that are outside the range of human hearing, there is also visual and mental frequencies outside of the range of human perceptive-detectability. 

When Jesus portrayed those who failed to come to The Call as being cast into the "outer darkness", -- i.e., "Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him into the outer darkness; there is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.' For many are called, but few chosen" (Matt 22:1-14) -- and having been cast into the "outer darkness", man in his natural organic condition of mind is blind to what modern science portrays as the UNSEEN SOURCE -- what is being presented is the the conformation of the analogy of Plato's Cave where natural organic man is presently dwelling in a sub-realm that inhibits his ability to see and understand the SOURCE of all realities.  With respect to the leaders of the Jews, Jesus said: "Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit" (Matt 15:14).  Further stating:  "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites!... You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel" (Matt 23:23-34).  And perhaps one of the most important Gospel statements portraying to man's inability to perceptively-understand: "How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while there is still a beam in your own eye? 5You hypocrite! First take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye" (Matt 7:4-5).  And when we consider the statement of Jesus that is preserved in the Gospel ot Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you" -- with perhaps the most profound statement: "Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures" (Luke 24:45).  Jesus had to open the minds of his disciples, because they were subject to the perceptive understanding of the human inability to see and understand the Source and higher reality of both the scriptures, and the higher reality of all things in this world -- i.e., they were blind to the SOURCE. 

When modern science began to recognize that what is physically seen is a projection from an UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD, thereby confirming the analogy of Plato's Cave, they presented the reality set forth in the Gospels as to man's inability to see and understand.  In the analogy of Plato's Cave, organic man is portrayed as a prisoner of his physical senses that only permits him of see shadow-images projected from a higher UNSEEN SOURCE that is outside of the spectrum of human organic perceptive-vision and understanding (see Plato's Cave http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#Cave ).   

While modern science has proven that natural man of an organic mind is blind to the UNSEEN SOURCE of the images that we see, the modern scientist does not yet understand how this inherent human blindness can be overcome.  And while Plato makes reference to the few prisoners who escape the Cave, there is no clarity to what mankind must do to escape being a prisoner to the inherent limitations of his physical senses and be able to enter the realm of man's Higher Source Reality.   But an important clue is presented in the analogy of Plato's Cave when those few who do escape the Cave and return in an attempt to warn the other prisoners are portrayed as "mad-men".  Which is parallel to when Paul warned the congregation at Corinth that if he was to tell the faith-based believers the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel that they would reject what he attempted to convey to them as utter "foolishness" (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ).  And why the first century bishop Ignatius in his Epistle to the Trallaus speaks of the mysteries of the Gospel and writes: “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery? But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes. Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them”

 

And what few people understand today, is that the objective of escaping this realm of the suppressed physical senses is the true objective of all the major religions. 

In Judaism the Journey out of the Cave or the "outer darkness" to one's Higher Source was allegorically portrayed as when Joshua (Yeshua/Jesus) led the Children of Israel across the Jordan River and into the Promised Land.  In Islam it was portrayed as the Journey by Night to the Distant Mosque in Spiritual Mecca that every Muslim was required to make.  And in Christianity it was portrayed as entering in at the "narrow strait gate" and into the Inner Kingdom (see The Universal Path Of TheWay http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheUniversalPathOfTheWay ).   Now that modern science has confirmed what the mystics and visionaries have known all along with respect to natural man's inherent blindness and inability to see the UNIVERSAL SOURCE, they too are looking and seeking how to gain access to the Source of Self and the images that we see with our physical senses. 

Man's inherent blindness was presented in the question that the disciples posed to Jesus when they asked: "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).  A reality that the modern Christian does not at all understand is the fact that the Gospels portray three Causal-Factors for people being born blind from birth -- i.e., (1) the sins committed in the Soul's previous lives; (2) the sins committed by the parents; (3) and the inherent blindness as a condition affecting all of organic "natural" man when his/her development has been derailed (see Arrested Mental Development ).  

Modern Christians attempt to ignore this confirmation that the cause of a person's infirmities in the present can -- and often are caused -- by the sin incurred in that Soul's previous lives -- and they use as an excuse the statement of Jesus when he stated of the man born blind from birth: “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, said Jesus, but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him" (John 9:3).  Which provokes the question: Are all people who are born blind, born without the ability to see, so that Jesus could heal them and display the works of God?   Thus, the problem is seen in the fact that the blindness that Jesus is making reference to has nothing to do with the physical blindness caused by a person's own actions in their Soul's previous lives.  And in their denial of what is being presented, in conjunction with their own blind-ignorance which has been perpetrated upon them by being cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), they fail to understand that all of mankind has been born blind to the higher reality of man's Soul and Spiritual Reality -- and this blindness has been proven by modern science (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life).   And it is this blindness that Jesus healed "...so that the works of God might be displayed in him".

caused by the inherent Human Condition of man's divided reality, that is responsible for their inability to perceive man's higher Soul-Reality, that causes him to fall under the control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country in the parable of the Prodigal Son.  And one of the primary purposes and objectives of the Gospel teachings, is to restore man's spiritual vision and understanding.  This is accomplished by opening the "eyes of the heart" -- often referenced in the words: "eyes to see": as seen in the reality of mankind portrayed in the Gospel: "For this people’s heart has grown callous; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn, and I would heal them’" (Matt 13:15).       

  

 

 

Plato, the Greek philosopher, wrote a series of `Dialogues' which summarized many of the things which he had learned from his teacher, who was the philosopher Socrates.  One of the most famous of these Dialogues is the Allegory of the Cave -- but only a handful of people are astute enough to perceive the reality that they are themselves, immersed in the illusions of the Cave.  In this allegory, mankind is portrayed as being chained in a cave so that they can only see the shadows which are cast upon the walls of the cave by a fire burning behind them.  Plato likens people of a natural organic mindset who can see and perceive the outer world only with the earth-bound senses of their physical body -- senses which are comprised of earth-matter -- people who think and reason only with the very limited resources of the natural (physical) mind -- as prisoners who are chained in a cave, unable to turn their heads to see the Source of what they perceive and think they understand.   In reality, all they can see is the wall of the cave.  Behind them burns a fire.  Between the fire and the prisoners there is a parapet, along which puppeteers can walk.  The puppeteers, who are behind the prisoners, hold up puppets that cast shadows on the wall of the cave.  The prisoners are unable to see these puppets, the real objects, that pass behind them.  What the prisoners see and hear are shadows and echoes cast by objects that they do not see.  Because they are unable to see the source of reality, the prisoners mistake the appearance of the shadows cast on the wall of the cave for reality.  They mistakenly think the images they see on the wall (the shadows) were real -- and they know absolutely nothing of the real causes of the shadows.   So when the prisoners talk, what is it that they are talking about?   About the shadows that have been cast upon the wall of the cave.   If an object is carried past behind them, and it casts a shadow on the wall, a prisoner says "I see that"!   But what is he talking about?   While the prisoner is under the delusion that he is talking about something real and tangible, he fails to perceive that what he senses is the shadow that has been cast upon the wall of illusion.

 

 

And the fact that mystics knew the Facts of Nature all along that modern cutting-edge science has only now begun to recognize, what this fact confirms is the statement by Astrophysicist Robert Jastrow, who was the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies who wrote in his book, God and the Astronomers, that “The scientist has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.” 

The fact of the matter is that modern science has confirmed the analogy of Plato's Cave, the Inner Kingdom of the teachings of Jesus, and the wisdom of the mystics over the course of thousands of years who placed such great emphasis on acquisition of Self-Knowledge and fulfilling the adage to Know Thyself.  How did the mystics do this?  By embracing various paths that have evolved and transformed their own minds through the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that provided them vision and access to the Source of Self and Higher Spiritual Reality.  What this means is that the mystics created an academia that taught students how to prevail over the obstacles that enabled them to observe and even enter what modern science only now portrays as the UNSEEN SOURCE that the untransformed mind of organic (natural) man is blind to.  Where traditional science placed limits on their search for facts and truth, the academia of the past taught the students how to overcome those limits that are imposed upon mankind by virtue of his natural organic condition as a man or woman.   As an example of this Higher Academia we can quote the Wikipedia on "The Catechetical School of Alexandria which is portrayed as the oldest catechetical school in the world. St. Jerome records that the Christian School of Alexandria was founded by St. Mark himself and the first manager appointed by Saint Mark was Saint Justus, who later became the sixth bishop of Alexandria."  Thus, the academia of the ancients understood the statement of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas where it is warned: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".

What this means is that what is portrayed as scientific facts that has been used to render the many theories and axioms that is used and taught in modern academia, our culture and even our judicial courts, has been based on nothing more than blind faith in an ideology that has stood in denial man's higher reality. 

 

Without being able to see and understand the UNSEEN SOURCE of what the scientist observes, science has undermined man's search for higher truth.  How? Because science has only now acknowledged that the source of all that they have Analyzed is based upon blind speculation.  Therefore, their concept of scientific Data, Records, Insight and Experiments are all founded upon blind belief in an ideology that has been proven to be false.  Why blind belief?  If what we see with our physical senses is a shadow-projection from an UNSEEN SOURCE, then we cannot understand the projected shadow-image without also understanding both the SOURCE that is hidden and concealed from our perceptive-vision, and also WHY the SOURCE is hidden from our vision. 

The greatest failure of both science and academia, is seen in the fact that they restrict their search for the answers to life when they base their analysis and theories solely upon what they outwardly see and observe with their physical senses that they now acknowledge cannot observe  the SOURCE that is creating and projecting the images that we see.   Thus, those who we see as scientists -- many of whom influence the minds of students in the halls of academia where their quasi-scientific theories are taught -- must be categorized as faux-sources that blindly put forth theories that are unverified and have at best, a questionable basis of fact.  If you can't perceptively-understand the SOURCE, and are only able to observe the projected image of the UNSEEN SOURCE, then you are forming your opinions and creating theories built upon incomplete observations and analysis of what is beyond your perception and understanding.  And you continue to do this, even when you have been warned that what you see in this physical world is a series of incomplete shadow-images that have been projected into this realm from a higher SOURCE of MIND and CONSCIOUSNESS that is beyond the perceptive-vision and understanding of the consciousness of organic man.     

In contradistinction, one must recognize the mystic as the genuine voice of the true scientist.  What is a mystic?  It is a person who not only understands the limitations of organic man's senses, but is willing to make the effort to develop those attributes of mind that enable them to observe and understand what modern science portrays as the UNSEEN SOURCE that organic man is blind to. 

In light of modern cutting edge scientific findings, we must understand the mystic and spiritual visionary as those who have embraced an educational program above and beyond that of a Doctorate degree that is limited to the study of earthly speculation.  The purpose of academia and universities is to develop the mind of the student.  Therefore, the mystic or spiritual visionary has attended a developmental program parallel to a type of university, which develops the mind to perceive and understand what modern quantum physics has portrayed as the UNSEEN SOURCE.   Which means that the courses presented in the normal university and academia, must be understood as a secondary level of education that is based upon the accepted study of social earthly speculation -.e., what is popular among the multitude of people.  In the same way that academia and the university degree is designed to develop the mind of the student to function at a higher level of understanding, because the process of development for the mystic and visionary is to enable the mind of the student to function at a level where they are able to perceptively-understand the UNSEEN SOURCE in relation what is observed by man's organic visionary senses in this realm, then the mystic of visionary has undergone a higher level of education and academic study.     

That modern science has confirmed organic man's blindness the the Source of the images mankind observes, verifies the statement of Jesus as to the the plight of mankind in what is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of his world -- also called the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son.   When we portray organic human blindness, that does not mean that organic man cannot see -- only that his vision is limited to the physical objects of this sub-realm.   The blindness that modern science has confirmed is portrayed in the Gospel account of Jesus where it is stated: "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). 

 

A reality that the modern Christian does not at all understand is the fact that the Gospels portray three Causal-Factors for people being born blind from birth -- i.e., (1) the sins committed in the Soul's previous lives; (2) the sins committed by the parents; (3) and the inherent blindness as a condition affecting all of organic "natural" man when his/her development has been derailed (see Arrested Mental Development ).  

Modern Christians attempt to ignore this confirmation that the cause of a person's infirmities in the present can -- and often are caused -- by the sin incurred in that Soul's previous lives -- and they use as an excuse the statement of Jesus when he stated of the man born blind from birth: “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, said Jesus, but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him" (John 9:3).  Which provokes the question: Are all people who are born blind, born without the ability to see, so that Jesus could heal them and display the works of God?   Thus, the problem is seen in the fact that the blindness that Jesus is making reference to has nothing to do with the physical blindness caused by a person's own actions in their Soul's previous lives.  And in their denial of what is being presented, in conjunction with their own blind-ignorance which has been perpetrated upon them by being cast into the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), they fail to understand that all of mankind has been born blind to the higher reality of man's Soul and Spiritual Reality -- and this blindness has been proven by modern science (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life).   And it is this blindness that Jesus healed "...so that the works of God might be displayed in him".

caused by the inherent Human Condition of man's divided reality, that is responsible for their inability to perceive man's higher Soul-Reality, that causes him to fall under the control of what is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country in the parable of the Prodigal Son.  And one of the primary purposes and objectives of the Gospel teachings, is to restore man's spiritual vision and understanding.  This is accomplished by opening the "eyes of the heart" -- often referenced in the words: "eyes to see": as seen in the reality of mankind portrayed in the Gospel: "For this people’s heart has grown callous; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn, and I would heal them’" (Matt 13:15).       

 

And if we are all connected at a deeper level of mind and consciousness as verified in Bell's Theorem, then the spiritual visionary can be correct in their warning that as we do unto others, the same will be returned back to us -- which is a major theme in the Gospel Sermon on the Mount.  And, when the pre-Nicene 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), that would confirm the statement: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7).  Which means that each Soul in born into this world in accord with that Soul's own previous actions.  

 

 

modern science openly acknowledges that organic man is blind to the Source of the images that he observes in the world -- and confirms the position of the mystic that we are all intimately connected at a deeper level of consciousness as proven by Bell's Theorem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Science has proven the wisdom of the mystic.  What has in modern times been proven by science (see above), is merely confirming what the mystic has stated for thousands of years.  The analogy of Plato's Cave (see Plato's Cave ) portrays this realm as a prison where mankind only sees shadow-images projected from an UNSEEN SOURCE upon the wall of the cave.   And this analogy of Plato has been verified in the above quotation of 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.”  What this means is that the ONLY REALITY is in the UNSEEN FIELD, and all the answers and understanding of life must be sought therein.  Which provokes the question: How does a person develop the ability to perceive the SOURCE in the FIELD?   Quoting from the Wikipedia article: "Like the fire that cast light on the walls of the cave, the human condition is forever bound to the impressions that are received through the senses. Even if these interpretations (or, in Kantian terminology, intuitions) are an absurd misrepresentation of reality, we cannot somehow break free from the bonds of our human condition - we cannot free ourselves from phenomenal state just as the prisoners could not free themselves from their chains. If, however, we were to miraculously escape our bondage, we would find a world that we could not understand - the sun is incomprehensible for someone who has never seen it. In other words, we would encounter another 'realm,' a place incomprehensible because, theoretically, it is the source of a higher reality than the one we have always known; it is the realm of pure Form, pure fact."  And this statement with respect to the analogy of Plato's Cave and mankind's inability to comprehend his own higher Soul-Reality, is exactly the same as the statement made by Paul when he made reference to his inability to convey to the Christians who he, himself, had taught: "...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".  It is therefore imperative that modern believers understand Paul's words when he stated to those who he had personally taught: “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).  

The above statements by Paul was not made to people outside the Congregation of Christians.  It was made to Christians within the body of believers who Paul wrote they had receive all the teachings and knowledge of the "traditions" of Christ.   What this means is that even after Paul has personally taught the congregation of baptized believers the Gospel teachings -- which is the same teachings that believers embrace today -- warning that if he (Paul) had even attempted to convey to them the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings, that they would have rejected what he was even attempting to convey to them as utter "foolishness".  Why?  Because the mind of organic "natural" man is too immature and undeveloped, for organic natural man to understand his own higher Soul and Spiritual reality.   And the primary purpose of the Gospel was to enable the believer to "overcome" organic human limitations, thereby enabling them to begin to receive "...the hidden manna" (Rev 2:17).   

At their Source, all genuine religious paths are designed to open and develop the mind from its embryonic immature condition, in order to enable the person to begin to perceptively understand their own True Source of Being.   And herein lies the crux of the problem: In the same way that the source of the person you are in this world is your Higher Soul-Self that is evolving though the experiences of mankind, the Source of your Soul-Self is that Supreme Consciousness that we portray as God. 

In the beginning -- or the Alpha of Creation -- all souls existed as sparks of the Divine Mind.  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 some people in a Near Death Experience -- and it is this Being of Light that is each person's true form and self.   Moreover, in our natural state we are a Being of Light -- and our body-vessel which we inhabit in this world, is merely an allegorical projection of mind and spirit into the image of the body.  Science has even proven that all the neurons in our physical brain respond and are connected to a Higher Source of Light.  Quoting from Scientists Discover Biophotons "...the Biophotons our brains produce might be affected by quantum entanglement, meaning there can be a strong link between these photons, our consciousness and possibly what many cultures and religions refer to as Spirit."  

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 Higher Soul-Self of every person began their existence in the Alpha of Creation as "sparks" of the Divine Mind of Creator-God -- and can be understood as a Single Neuron in the Mind of God.  Modern cutting-edge science that is not at all understood by the proponents of scientism, has confirmed the wisdom of the mystic in such statements 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 as portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave.   Which means that you are a thought that is being projected into this world by your True-Self that dwells in the reality of an UNSEEN CAUSAL FIELD.  Why -- and what is the purpose of your existence in this realm that the parable of the prodigal son portrays as the Far Country?  In order for each Soul as a spark of the Divine Mind to grow and evolve, the great diversity of the opposite spheres of mind as portrayed in the article on the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ) that is the basis of Higher Mind, must interact with each other -- and it is through this interaction of the opposite spheres of mind and consciousness that the Light of the Soul evolves from a spark, into a great Being of Light that is Whole and Perfect as portrayed in Matthew 5:48.  

Intelligence is the ability to perceive and understand from the perspective of a synergy of opposite perspectives or realities.   The Tree of Life is the pattern of mind that perceives and understands from the equation of twelve different perspectives of reality.  In the attempt to understand the relationship of Intellect and Higher Mind with the synergy of opposite perspective, we can quote from the 90th chapter of the Gospel of the Nazirenes (see http://GospelOfTheNazirenes.org/gospel_nine.htm#chapter90 ) where it states: "Again the twelve were gathered together in the circle of palm trees, and one of them even Thomas asked the others, What is Truth? For the same things appear different to different minds, and even to the same mind at different times. What, then, is Truth? And as they were speaking Jesus appeared in their midst and said, Truth, one and absolute, is in God alone, for no man, neither any body of men, knows that which God alone knows, who is the All in All. To men is truth revealed, according to their capacity to understand and receive".  And then it is explained: "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." 

It is important to understand that the Light of the Soul which is patterned and created in the Image of God, is the synergy of "...the one light [that] is manifest in twelve faces" of diverse spheres of mind that perceive and understand from opposite perspectives.  As explored in the article on the Tree of Life, the twelve spheres of mind are comprised of four Trinitarian patterns consisting of male and female opposites with sphere that is a third-force balance of the two opposite male/female polarities.   And within each of the twelve, exist the pattern of four trinities -- i.e., "...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."   The amount of Divine Light that each individual Soul can manifest, is in accord with the balanced interaction of the 12 spheres of Mind as patterned in the Tree of Life.  The Light that each of the four trinities can manifest, is in accord with the balance of the male and female opposite polarities, and the evolution and wholeness of the third-force balance.   And this is key to understanding the higher purpose and objective of the life of man -- i.e., therefore, the Soul which dwells in a higher twelve-dimensional realm of consciousness, must permit segments of itself to develop through the interaction with that segmented-self's opposite polarity of mind.  Which means that this interactions of opposites is impossible in the twelve-dimensions of the Realm of Souls -- and this interaction of opposites can only be accomplished when the Soul projects a segment or piece of the whole, to incarnate into this three-dimensional realm, so it can interact with both its opposite male/female polarity, as well as and other segmented aspects of mind that has been projected by each Soul (see The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#SegmentedMind ).       

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 lights -- 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 into 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.

From virtually countless sources, we have often heard the terms ego-self, earthly-self, lower-self, and even false-self -- all of which portrays the person we are in this world, in relation to our True-Self that is portrayed as unknowable from a human perspective, and is personified in the adage to Know Thyself.  And from the perspective of our three-dimensional lower-self, the Inward Journey to connect with our True-Self that dwells in the twelve-dimensional Realm of Souls, is an inward journey into the exploration of metaphysics (beyond the physical) into what would constitute the supernatural deeper levels of consciousness -- supernatural being used to denote that greater part of our consciousness that lies at a non-physical deeper level of Mind and Being.  And in view of the fact that the process of self-discovery is beyond the organic limitations of the physical, so long as our thinking and impressions are "...received through the senses" as portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave, we will forever remain a prisoner in this shadow-world of illusions that when rightly understood, are the projected images of allegorical allusions of a Higher Source that is beyond our organic human perceptive-understanding.  

Deists have long portrayed the controlling factor in life as the Laws of Nature and Natures God -- but what is not understood is that any thought, action, movement, organization or institution in this world that fails to connect the physical with the spiritual source, is bound to failure.  How?  Because what is known as the Law of Octaves (see The Application Of The Law Of Octaves And The Trinity http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#LawOfOctaves ) tests all thoughts, all movements, all institutions that exist within the reality of Creation.  And when rightly understood, the Laws of Octaves really has nothing to do with music -- when in reality what is presented in the Octave Intervals is universal to all the Natural Laws of Creation.  What this means is that in the case of the 7-8 sequence of the musical scale, it is easy to observe these Universal Laws that impact all of Creation at work.  Therefore, unless the earthly-self finds a way to connect with their Spiritual-Source, they are basically doomed to failure.       

Why is Higher-Reality and our True-Self beyond our Comprehension?  Our Soul or True-Self dwells in a twelve-dimensional realm of Souls where all realities are seen and understood.  Physical mankind dwells in a three-dimensional realm of divided consciousness and realities, in order to permit and bring about a deeper interaction of Mind -- thereby enabling the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening to take place.  Therefore, while we, as a projected embryonic image of our True-Self dwell in a three-dimensional sub-reality of duality and division -- this world of duality and division is necessary to bring about soul-development.  In the same way that an amoeba does not possess the diversity of mind and consciousness to understand the higher reality of mankind, it remains virtually impossible for the three-dimensional mind of man to comprehend the twelve-dimensional higher reality of the Soul.  Yet, Mystics and those who sincerely seek Soul-Knowledge, are those who have proven that the innate aspects of the mind can be developed through the interaction of opposites, to begin to perceive and understand man's higher Soul-Reality -- that is, if man makes the effort to seek Higher Truth and live his life in accord with that higher truth and knowledge.    Therefore, in our three-dimensional organic condition of mind, we can't conceive of our own higher Soul-Reality.  And because the images we do see are all reduced and condensed from their twelve-dimensional Source into three-dimensional shadow-images that we see with our physical eyes, we can't see the Source because we lack the necessary Wholeness of Mind (see Wholeness of Mind & Being).   But to accomplish this, we must undergo the process of mental deepening and expansion wherein our latent areas of mind that do not correspond to the things of this world are developed and evolved. 

What can be called Scientism (see Science Vs Scientism http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#ScienceVsScientism ), is based upon a three-dimensional blueprint, and this blueprint where only what is physically perceived is considered real and genuine, has the detrimental effect of rendering man's conclusions which have been drawn from this three-dimensional blueprint, incapable of comprehending man's higher twelve-dimensional reality.  When mystics make reference to the gravely flawed wisdom of this world, what is being denoted is the incompleteness of the physical images that carnal man creates in his attempt to explain reality ONLY from this three-dimensional realm.   This three-dimensional blueprint of Scientism can in many ways be compared to the consciousness of an embryo which has begun to form in the womb of it's  physical mother, declaring that only what exists in the womb is real.  The Gospel account of Jesus declares that only those people who develop and evolve through the subsequent stages of birth, are able to enter into the Higher Life that is the ultimate destiny of mankind.  And in the same way that a physical embryo can't perceive and understand the higher reality of mankind beyond the confines of its mother's womb, when we as an embryonic image generated by our Higher Soul-Self was born into this realm by emerging out of our mother's physical womb, we entered into the Womb of an environment that can be portrayed as our Earthly-Mother which is necessary to stimulate and bring about our mental growth and development (see Mental Womb http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#MentalWomb AND Entering The Kingdom Of Man http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#EnteringTheKingdomOfMan ).  And this process of growth and development is achieved by the opposite spheres of mind that provides man with his great diversity of consciousness.  

While all valid religions are based upon the premise that man's three-dimensional mind can be developed and expanded, thereby enabling that person to perceive and understand his own twelve-dimensional higher Soul-Reality, virtually all religions become reinterpreted and corrupted by clergy, priests and authorities who are themselves bound to a three-dimensional perceptive-comprehension.  Being limited to three-dimensional perceptive-comprehension, it remains virtually impossible for these faux-authorities to understand the spiritual meaning of both the original teachings and the scriptures.   And this is why the Apostle Peter warned that "...when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without" (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ).  Why can't the scriptures be read in accord with "...the understanding of our own mind"?  Because our own human organic consciousness is three-dimensional, and incapable of comprehending the twelve-dimensional higher reality of our Soul and True-Self.  While the scriptures are designed to develop the latent attributes of mind, they must be presented to organic man in a useable form by cloking the necessary allegorical catalysts that connect our Inner-Self with the person we are in this world, by presenting these allegorical catalysts in an historical facade (see The Cosmology Of The Gospels http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#UnknownTruth ).  Because the catalysts that connect the outer-self with the inner-self cannot be presented in a linear academic environment in order to function, these catalysts must be presented in a mythological supernatural format.  Why?  From a three-dimensional organic human perspective, the higher twelve-dimensional reality of the Soul is very much a supernatural incomprehensible reality.  

When critics counter that the Gospels are myth and not literally and historically correct and accurate, their opinion is based upon the three-dimensional inability of the organic mind of man to comprehend -- or in any manner understand -- the twelve-dimensional higher reality of the Soul -- which from the perspective of three-dimensional human consciousness, is totally supernatural.  Further, it is virtually impossible to relate the higher twelve-dimensional reality of the Soul, in the linear three-dimensional environment of both academia and the self-imposed limitations of scientism.  To the degree that the over-development of the (male) Linear spheres of mind which always attempt to dominate the (feminine) Intuitive spheres of mind, have the effect of suppressing and even atrophying the inward-looking Intuitive attributes of mind that are necessary to begin to tap into our Inner Source of twelve-dimensional Soul-Reality (see Linear Vs Intuitive Development Of Mind http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#LinearVsIntuitive ).  Therefore, The Higher Knowledge of the Soul can only be acquired through inner experiences brought about through the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that develops the latent attributes of mind that do not correspond to this physical sub-realm.   In view of the fact that from the perceptive-understanding of organic man, the supernatural reality of the Soul MUST be presented in a series of non-physical non-linear allegorical-catalysts that are able to connect the person you are in this realm with the higher twelve-dimensional reality of your Higher Soul-Self.  

In biblical language, Jesus portrayed the leaders of the Jews as the "spawn of the devil" --i.e., "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:43-44).  Why were the Jews portrayed in this manner?  Because in their outward and historical interpretations of the scriptures, they were blind guides who threw away the Key of Knowledge (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ) -- 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 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).  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.

When modern critics reject the supernatural accounts of the scriptures -- and especially the Gospels -- what they fail to understand is that: By using the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge that unlocks and opens the "narrow strait gate" of inner twelve-dimensional Soul-Consciousness, those events and realties that are allegorically portrayed as supernatural, takes place within us.  Thus, what is portrayed as myth from outward-looking dominant (male) Linear perspective of this three-dimensional sub-realm, becomes manifest and true within the higher consciousness of organic man who develops those inward Intuitive spheres of mind in the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.   What is therefore portrayed as myth, is brought about and manifest with the consciousness of the evolved mind.  What is beyond the limited thinking of the critic is the fact that the higher higher twelve-dimensional Soul-Reality cannot be presented in a three-dimensional linear blueprint of mind and consciousness.  And when it states that "...For believers in scientism the claims of metaphysics are invalid and have no bearing on reality. The physical cosmos is all there is" (see Scientism), when it is understood that man's reality beyond the three-dimensional shadow-images can only be defined as metaphysical and supernatural, it must be understood that the theories, doctrines and teachings of modern Scientism, that inhibit mental development.  Resulting in the reality that the most important spiritual concepts are edited, corrupted, and suppressed by the religious/secular authorities who then use the corrupted teachings for their own Self-aggrandizing purposes -- thereby using the religious and academic teachings to enhance the authorities own power, wealth, or position. 

In the Original Gospel teachings this process was portrayed as being in the world and not of it -- i.e., the meaning of the word Ebionite which portrays those who are the "poor ones" to the ways and thinking of this world.  If we pose the question: What is wrong with the thinking of this world?  It is based totally upon what is exclusively seen and observed by the physical eyes -- physical images that the modern scientist has now portrayed as a "blemish" created by an UNSEEN HIGHER SOURCE (see The Findings Of The Physicist ).  Which means that these scientists who base their thinking and theories on what is physically seen, is always based upon partial and incomplete (blind) assumptions.   Thus the wisdom of the statement: “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money" (Matt 6:24).  When you understand God to be the pursuit of Higher Truth, and the term money as being rich in the ways and thinking of this shadow-realm that is portrayed as the Far Country in the parable of the Prodigal Son, then we can begin to relate the Original Gospel Teachings to the above statement that "...the human condition is forever bound to the impressions that are received through the senses... we cannot somehow break free from the bonds of our human condition - we cannot free ourselves from phenomenal state just as the prisoners could not free themselves from their chains."

The purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings was to bring about the necessary Wholeness in the mind of the seeker/disciple (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ) -- 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).   The Gospel taught that in the same way that the prisoners in the Cave could only see the shadow-images projected by an UNSEEN SOURCE, all of mankind is born blind -- i.e., the inability to perceive the SOURCE of the shadow-images we see with our physical senses (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development).   And when rightly understood, the Gospel portrays three causal-factors as to why all of mankind are born blind to his own Higher Soul Reality.      

All genuine religions very quickly become corrupted by what Thomas Paine portrayed as "priest-craft" (see http://ThomasPaineRedux.com ).  This corruption is always the work of linear-minded Fundamentalists who attempt to read and interpret the scriptures outwardly, as historical narratives -- rather than inwardly as spiritual accounts used to bring about the expansion of of the mind in accord with the design of the original authors  (see The Cosmology Of The Gospels http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com ).   Yet, if both the scriptures and the original teachings had not been corrupted, then the lessened, superficial version of the core teachings, never would have been embraced by a great number of people.  While it is true that the Gospels have been corrupted with many of the most spiritual teachings removed, even when the corrupted Gospels are used as originally intended by applying them within self as the Key of Knowledge, they remain sufficient to bring about the original purpose and objectives of the scriptures with respect to the process of bringing about the deepening and expansion of mind.  Further, the corruption of the Gospels was foreknown, and seven (7) more pure libraries of scriptures were preserved in order to be rediscovered as the appropriate time when they could once again be used to bring about their intended purpose (see Can I Get An Original Pure Copy Of The Scriptures ).  The more pure copies of the scriptures are far more valuable and effective today, because the corrupted Gospels have made such a great number of people believers -- which never could have happened if the Gospels were maintained in their original condition.   

 

 

Modern cutting-edge science has proven the wisdom of the Mystic that man's True-Self is a Supernatural Being that transcends all physical and metaphysical realities.   Which means that unless you prepare and expand the consciousness of your mind to perceptively see and understand the supernatural and metaphysical, you will remain ignorant of not only your own True-Self, but also all realities of Life.  Which means that everything you think your know, will be false from the perspective of man's True-Reality.  From the perspective of the Original undefiled Gospel teachings, sincere believers were taught that they must turn from the understanding of the flesh or earthly, 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).  The original religion of 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” (Encyclopedia Britannica). 

Because the Church was controlled by carnal leaders, the supernatural source of self was rejected, the spiritual concepts and teachings of the Gospels were either corrupted or removed, and "...the transcendent Christ” was rejected by men bound by their earthly carnal consciousness.  Which means that the very essence of the Gospel teachings, were undermined and rendered spiritually impotent.  But this was also true when Scientism undermined the scientific quest to seek Knowledge and Truth -- thereby plunging man into the abyss of abject self-ignorance.   In confirmed the wisdom of the Mystic that man's Source exists beyond the limits of physical realty -- and all that our physical senses are able to perceive is the ego-self, the earthly-self, or the lower-self -- means that man's rejection of the supernatural or metaphysical, provided all the wrong answers to man's search for the answers to the enigma of self and the life mankind is living.   Moreover, when the wisdom of the Mystic is recognized in their assertion that this is a shadow-realm -- and everything we see in an allegorical incomplete image of a higher Source-Reality that lies beyond our organic perceptive vision and understanding -- then all human reasoning and understanding is defective and gravely flawed.  But the fact that our culture forces and programs young minds into the folly of an academic environment that is based upon Scientism and a rejection of all viable self-knowledge, means that our culture imposes upon these indoctrinated children a mental-deficiency that is impossible for the vast majority of people to overcome.              

  Abstract Thought: As portrayed in the image on the left, the Mind of Man surrounds and immerses the physical, thereby interacting through the body which is itself an allegorical image of man's consciousness.  The Source of Mans' Mind exists in his un-manifest Soul that is beyond the perceptive vision and understanding of man's earthly consciousness.  Which means that any system -- whether academic, cultural, philosophical, religious or scientific that is based upon non-metaphysical concepts of man's reality, is a detriment to his life and wellbeing.  One of Pythagoras’s most important contributions to the development of philosophy was the idea that abstract thinking is superior to the evidence of the senses. This was taken up by Plato in his theory of Forms, and resurfaced in the philosophical method of the rationalists in the 17th century. The Pythagorean attempt to combine the rational with the religious was the first attempt to grapple with a problem that has dogged philosophy and religion in some ways ever since.  Abstract thinking can be defined and and understood as the ability to think and perceive beyond the shadow-images that is seen and observed by concrete-linear thought -- and intuitively perceive the deeper meaning of what the shadow-images signify on a higher reality.   Therefore, Abstract thinking is the ability to think and understand the higher reality of the objects, principles, and ideas that are beyond physical manifestation.  Abstract-Intuitive thinking is therefore not contrary to concrete or linear thinking -- but rather, explains and reveals the higher nature and reality of concrete thought and the meaning of the images that we physically observe and interact with in the physical world.  Why?  Because Concrete-Linear thinking is based solely upon the (allegorical) shadow-images that are themselves incomplete from a linear-perspective.   Therefore when the Linear-Concrete thinker concludes that "...the claims of metaphysics are invalid and have no bearing on reality. The physical cosmos is all there is" (see Wikipedia AND/OR the article Science versus Scientism ), then the Linear-Concrete thinker is acknowledging his blindness.  Darwinism or the Theory of Evolution is based upon  

 

The basis of the Theory of Evolution which stands as the foundation of our fossilized scientism that has been proven to be in error by the emerging body of advanced science, is taught to every student in virtually every grade level of academia.  Darwinism states that what is portrayed today as the shadow-images or blemish-images that we see with our physical eyes, have independently of any UNSEEN-SOURCE evolved through natural selection.  Evolution therefore states that there was no unseen supernatural (non-physical) force exerted upon physical matter in the development of the natural world.  But, in view of the fact that physical matter is now understood as a "blemish" created by the intersecting forces in the UNSEEN-FIELD, then the whole of the body of science that has been built upon the Theory of Evolution is wrong -- and actually, in reverse of man's true reality.   But even more important us the fact that the faux-belief has the effect of derailing and obstructing the person's development of mind.  Thereby making them blind to the higher reality in the UNSEEN-SOURCE-FIELD -- and in the impediment of the development of those  aspects of mind that possess the innate ability to access the higher UNSEEN-SOURCE of Higher Mind, the person is then and inhibited from understanding the Causal-Factors in the life they are presently living.

 

Allegorical Shadow-Images are projected-catalysts that have the ability to project the higher twelve-dimensional Source into man's three-dimensional realm -- and when rightly understood, have the capacity to reveal to the abject thought the higher twelve-dimensional reality that cannot manifest in the physical.  Where linear-concrete thinking sees only the incomplete shadow-image, intuitive-abstract thinking reveals to the person the unseen Source and the Causal-Factors of what man experiences in his encounters of life.       

Every religious person has been confronted by the statement: If God exists, then prove it.  And these statements are routinely made by Linear-Concrete thinkers who lack the ability to embrace Intuitive-Abstract Higher Thought.   Where the Linear-Concrete mindset only sees the physical shadow-images, the Intuitive-Abstract mindset is able to interpret and perceptively-understand the higher source that is projecting the shadow-image.

Wholeness And The Cosmology Of Mind: What is meant by the term, the Cosmology of Mind?   The dictionary defines the word Cosmology as "a branch of metaphysics that deals with the nature of the universe" -- with the term "metaphysics" portraying those realities of mind that are beyond or beneath the borders of physical consciousness.   When the modern physicist states that organic man can only perceive what appears as a "blemish" that is the expression of an UNSEEN SOURCE in a FIELD, then the metaphysics expressed in the term Cosmology of Mind would seek to perceive what is physically seen and what is not seen by the human senses in the UNSEEN FIELD -- i.e., to perceive in Wholeness.  

In many ways the Mind can be looked upon as a great Intellectual-Mansion with hidden passages that must be known and opened in order to reveal the great wealth of each person's true potential -- i.e., the Intellectual Jewel that is the True-Source of Self and each person's True Identity.   And it is this Intellectual-Jewel that exists beneath the levels of surface organic faux-self -- which is often portrayed as the ego-self, the lower-self, the earthly-self -- and what this means is that at the very Essence of each person's Mansion of Mind that is portrayed in the adage, to Know Thyself.  Which is why Jesus is quoted in the Gospel of Thomas as stating: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   Those who remain enticed by the outer faux-consciousness of organic man -- regardless of their beliefs or academic achievements -- are those who have so limited their self-knowledge, that they are correctly portrayed as dwelling in intellectual poverty. 

Only those who possess the knowledge of the non-physical areas within the Mansion of the Mind that can be portrayed as metaphysical and beyond surface-perception, are able to know and possess the true potential of the Superstructure of Mind.   And when rightly understood, what the term Cosmology therefore presents, is the blueprint, structure and framework of the mind that is the foundational reality of man's superior intellect and reasoning abilities that enables him to perceptively-understand from a multidimensional perspective.  Which provokes the questions: What is the source of man's greater intellect?  What is man's true intellectual potential?  To bring about a condition of Wholeness, the person must possess a workable understanding of the Cosmology or blueprint of the  Mind.  But since the vast majority of people lack any degree of Wholeness of Mind, intellectual dissention and conflict has cast mankind into the quagmire of abject ignorance with respect to his true  potential. 

If ignorance is a disease, then mankind is suffering from an intellectual and spiritual plague that has shackled him to the abyss of unknowing.  How can I make such a profound statement about our modern culture?  In the same way that the emerging body of science has revealed that the whole construct of our thinking where we have portrayed shadow-images that mystics have defined as incomplete allegorical illusions that we lack an understanding of the true meaning of, so long as we continue to portray the shadow-image as the source, we will remain disconnected from our own higher reality.   If it is true that what we observe in the outer world are incomplete shadow-images of a higher imperceptible reality, then so long as we lack the ability to see and understand the Source of the images we see, it will remain impossible to understand our true reality.  As an example: If all the images in the physical that we observe and interact with in this world are incomplete shadow-images -- including the mind of mankind -- then so long as we continue to associate the physical brain with the actual mind of man, all real progress will remain flat-lined.  Why?  So long as we remain ignorant of the Cosmology of Mind and man's inability to achieve Wholeness, it will remain impossible to advance beyond the cave-man fossilized level of mental and spiritual development where we presently find ourselves imprisoned. 

If we pose the questions: From a religious perspective, what has inhibited man's quest to achieve Wholeness of Mind?  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).  The realities that are presented in these words is that (1) what we portray as sin, is the (natural) effect of the mind that lacks Wholeness; (2) that it would be impossible to overcome and prevail over sin, without achieving Wholeness; (3) that those who continue to sin, have yet to be healed from the sickness that causes sin; (4) and that those who have been made whole and engage again in sin, are subject to an even worse fate as stated in the words: “See, you have been made whole. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you” (John 5:14).  What this means is that those who embrace and live in accord with the Royal Law, are able to become Whole on their own -- without a Physician such as the man Jesus (see The Spiritual Holistic Lifestyle http://BrotherOfJesus#TheSpiritualHolisticLifestyle ).  That those who either achieve Wholeness or are assisted by a physician such as Jesus, will have a worse fate if they violate the Royal Law.  In John 8:11, Jesus commands an adulterous woman to “Go and sin no more.” Why would He say to the woman to cease from engaging in sin, if it were impossible for mankind to stop sinning as promoted by the Churches?  And this fact is presented in the Gospel statement: "And that servant who knew his master's will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more" (Luke 12:47-48 NKJ). 

  The Laws of Nature And Nature's God: In the same way that there are physical laws that maintain and control every aspect of physical life, there is also the Laws that control the progression and evolution of the Mind of Man.  In the same way that there is physical gravity, there is also what can be portrayed as the gravity of mind -- which many religions often portray as the power of satanic forces.  As an embryo develops, there are Natural Laws embedded in the embryo that monitors its development into a fetus, and subsequently into an infant.  If the embryo does not properly develop, the Laws that are embedded in the fetus will cause a miscarriage or spontaneous abortion.  Once the fetus is born, there are Natural Laws that monitor and develop the mind of man -- insuring the persons advancement, level upon level -- and this is necessary to insure that the mind of man is able to comprehend at each level of development.   In the same way that gravity keeps us pinned to the earth, what is allegorically portrayed as satanic influences is often the testing of the Laws that monitors man's development of mind.  The carnal person can rightly be portrayed as being earth-bound in their thinking -- and what can be allegorically portrayed as the laws of the gravity of mind requires man to achieve levels of completeness on each level of development -- prior to permitting him to advance to the next level.  That the mind is tested at each level of advancement is necessary in order for the mind of that person to advance to the next level.  The more advanced the Soul, the more easily that person is able to prevail over the testing of the gravity of Mind.  So, it can be portrayed as testing which evaluates us to see if we are prepared to enter a higher level of mind and being.  Let me present you with an example of these Laws of Mind:

When our astronauts flew to the moon, while it is true that rocket propulsion was used to escape the earths gravity and limiting factor of its organic atmosphere, the astronauts then utilized the Natural Laws to escape the pull of the earth, and permit the spacecraft to be pulled to its destination. When flight engineers make reference to a window when operations in space can be achieved, what they are making reference to is the proper alignment of the planets that enable space flight to be achieved. Scientifically, this would be portrayed as slingshot paths that are called Gravity Assist Trajectories. They use the gravity and motion of planets to pull a spacecraft into a new path. Quoting the article on Navigation in Space (see http://www.qrg.northwestern.edu/projects/vss/docs/navigation/3-slingshot.html ): "Gravity is a very important force. Every object in space exerts a gravitational pull on every other, and so gravity influences the paths taken by everything traveling through space. It is the glue that holds together entire galaxies. It keeps planets in orbit. It makes it possible to use human-made satellites and to go to and return from the Moon. It makes planets habitable by trapping gasses and liquids in an atmosphere. It can also cause life-destroying asteroids to crash into planets. ...Consider Voyager 2 ... the spacecraft's arrival was carefully timed so that it would pass behind Jupiter in its orbit around the Sun. As the spacecraft came into Jupiter's gravitational influence, it fell toward Jupiter, increasing its speed toward maximum at closest approach to Jupiter. Since all masses in the universe attract each other, Jupiter sped up the spacecraft substantially, and the spacecraft slowed down Jupiter in its orbit by a tiny amount, since the spacecraft approached from behind. At this point, Voyager 2 had been sped up enough by Jupiter's gravity to get a speed greater than Jupiter's escape velocity. As it left, it slowed down again, but it never slowed all the way to the speed it was before getting to Jupiter. It left the area near Jupiter faster and in a different trajectory. This technique was repeated at Saturn and Uranus. Gravity assists can be also used to decelerate a spacecraft, by flying in front of a body in its orbit. When the Galileo spacecraft arrived at Jupiter, passing close in front of Io in its orbit, Galileo experienced deceleration, helping it go into orbit around Jupiter. "

So, our scientists in understanding the Natural Laws, timed their sequences where they initiated rocket burns to take advantage of the natural movement of the planets, where they could then manipulate these Natural Forces to bring about the results which they envisioned. When our Constitutional Framers sited The Laws of Nature And Nature's God, what they were referencing was man's ability to time and take advantage of the Laws and Forces of body, mind and spirit, to bring about and invoke a higher state of consciousness, which permitted them to possess the vision and knowledge necessary to apply this knowledge of the Laws to the birth and development of the United States -- which harnessed and invoked the Laws to manifest an environment where what we portray as American Exceptionalism could be fostered and brought about in the lives of the American People and the world (see http://ThomasPaineRedux.com ). This foundation that would usher in what has been portrayed as American Exceptionalism, has enabled Souls who have sought the Higher Self-Knowledge to advance in Consciousness and Mind-Development beyond organic human levels. An example of this ability to manifest Higher Mind and Enlightened Consciousness is demonstrated in the Restoration of the Original Gospel Teachings which were corrupted by the Church (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ). And an understanding of the Cosmology of both the Gospel and Mind (see http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com ). In the same way that a working knowledge of the Laws of the Cosmos enables our scientists to plot and navigate space -- and the knowledge of the Laws of Nature and Nature's God enabled the Deist Founders to orchestrate the birth of a nation that would usher in Exceptionalism -- those Souls who understand the Cosmology of Mind are able to advance their Consciousness beyond organic human levels -- thereby enabling them to achieve levels of Wholeness and Self-Knowledge of their Complete Self.  And it is this body of esoteric self-knowledge of the Natural Laws of Mind that was being made reference to when the Apostle Peter wrote to James that if the esoteric body of knowledge was to become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".

When the Gospel account of Jesus states and explains to his disciples: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, 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).  Thus, the reality of the words: "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17).  The vast majority of people who have never made any real effort to refine their physical body and mind so that the Higher Spiritual Knowledge can be received and understood, are incapable of comprehending such mental dynamics and realities as slingshoting trajectories of mind to bring about the necessary Higher Consciousness to receive the Divine Manna from the Indwelling Logos (see The Divine Manna - The Gospels - The foundation of the New Covenant http://BrotherOfJesus.org#NewCovenant ).  They remain shackled to the organic human consciousness of the Old Covenant, thereby failing to embrace the New Covenant teachings that Enlightens and Anoints the Mind of the sincere seeker (see The Two Ways - New vs Old Covenants http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TheTwoWays ).   

The historical man Jesus prevailed over the Laws to the degree that he became At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God.  This is seen in the position of the original followers and disciples of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily when they stated that he (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). Those who do as Jesus commanded and pick up their own cross and follow in his footsteps, are able to observe the Law completely that enables them to become Anointed (Messiah/Christ).  Those who fail to prevail over the Royal Law, remain totally carnal in their thinking and incapable of comprehending both the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, as well as their own Higher Soul-Reality that is envisioned in the words: Know Thyself.

When St. Augustine imported his doctrine of Original Sin 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 (see The Folly Of Original Sin: http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#OriginalSin ), the very foundation of the Original Gospel Teachings became undermined.   Jesus taught that while his mission was that of a spiritual physician, he also stated that those who have intimately embraced the Royal Law of God do not need a physician -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, ...I came not to call the righteous".   Which teaching totally rejects both the doctrine of Original Sin, as well as the modern Church teaching that salvation is acquired ONLY through the belief in the historical man Jesus.

While the case can be made with respect to corrupted scriptures where the most important teachings were either edited, removed or corrupted, an even greater causal-factor is seen in the reality that what is portrayed as science is actually Scientism which has suppressed and limited all valid scientific inquiries and research.  Scientism is defined as "is an ideology that promotes science as the only objective means by which society should determine normative and epistemological values" (see Wikipedia).   In the article Science versus Scientism it is stated: "Scientism is a dogmatic ideology which presumes that 'science,' in the narrower sense of the word, has the answers to all questions. For believers in scientism the claims of metaphysics are invalid and have no bearing on reality. The physical cosmos is all there is. There is nothing but three dimensions (or four if we include time as a dimension) which are perceived with our five senses. This is all there is and this is therefore all that is worth studying."   Scientism excludes and ignores whatever is not three-dimensional and physical, and therefore inhibits man from achieving any degree of Wholeness which would enable him to achieve true Enlightenment and Knowing.     

Fortunately, there has emerged a body of scientists who have rejected Scientism and what is being taught in academia, and this body of scientists have begun to prove what only the very few wise men have understood throughout the history of mankind -- and their findings have the potential to begin to open the door to higher understanding.  Who has these few wise men in the past been?  Some have been called mystics.   When you understand the definition of scientist as denoting: "...a person who is studying or has expert knowledge of one or more of the natural or physical sciences -- i.e., a research scientist" -- then the few who have known the truth throughout the epochs of human history, are those few who have sought Truth without limitations and barriers in their quest to investigate and understand the Source of all Life as we know it -- which in the words of these enlightened wise men and women, is the quest to understand and Know Thyself.   The emerging body of science has confirmed the wisdom of the Mystic that what we see physically, is an incomplete projection from an UNSEEN SOURCE.  Which means that the physical person we are in this world, is a projection from a Higher Source of Self that these same Mystics portray as our Eternal Soul.   Wholeness, then, portrays the few who have overcome the division between the (physical) person they are in this world, with their Higher Source of Self.   Therefore, those few who have come to know their true Source of Being, who understand their true relationship to all of mankind and every aspect of Creation, are the few who understand the secrets of the cosmos. 

When the modern scientist states that organic man cannot see into what is portrayed as the UNSEEN SOURCE of the images projected and observed by mankind in this world -- confirming the fact that organic man is blind to this higher SOURCE-REALITY -- it is important to understand that organic man is blind to the SOURCE of the images we see with our physical eyes, because we lack the necessary Wholeness of Mind (see Science Proves Spirit @  http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ).  But so long as the framework of our thinking has been built upon scientism instead of actual scientific enquiry, it will remain impossible for man to achieve a state of Self-Knowing and True-Enlightenment.  

When cyberneticist David Foster (see below) states  that "...The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe”, what he is stating is that our physical eyes can only see those frequencies that are of an earth-vibratory frequency.   When Paul prayed to open the eyes of the people's heart -- i.e, "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) -- what he was stating is that mankind possesses the innate ability to see and understand the higher Source-Reality -- but only if those aspects of mind that can perceive the SOURCE is intentionally developed.  And when the Mystic portrays man as a prisoner who can only see shadow-images that are projected from this UNSEEN SOURCE that science has now confirmed the existence and reality of (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ), it is important to understand that man's inability to perceive or understand the UNSEEN SOURCE, is caused by his own lack of Wholeness of Mind.  And while man possesses the innate ability to develop the mind and bring about Wholeness, few possess the necessary understanding of what they see in the outer world, and consciously bring about their necessary development.  

To fulfill the adage to Know Thyself, the person must understand the Cosmology of Mind and what it means to bring about Wholeness.   While modern science has proven that the Theory of Evolution is founded upon scientism and not actual scientific inquiry, the theory is the epitome of the gravely flawed hypothesis that only what is seen and observed by man with his physical eyes is real -- concluding that there is no unseen forces working upon physical matter -- and this long held and widely endorsed theory which continues to be embraced by many Linear-thinking people, has been proven to be totally wrong.  When physicist Walter Thirring stated about the nature and reality of physical 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 [UNSEEN] 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” (see Urbausteine der Materie)

If all that is physical, is a "blemish" that has been projected out of a "Field" that we cannot see with our physical eyes, then so too is our physical body and the physical brain a "blemish" that is being projected from an UNSEEN-SOURCE that we cannot detect with our physical vision.   And because the framework of our thinking has been based upon the ideology of scientism that has excluded and rejected even the existence of the Source-Field, mankind has been obstructed from achieving any functionable degree of Wholeness of Mind. 

In his 1951 textbook on quantum theory, Bohm offered some interesting speculations on the analogies between quantum processes and thought processes, thus carrying further the celebrated statement made by the astronomer James Jeans two decades earlier: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”; and the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington:  “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.   Max Planck who is considered the founder of quantum theory stated: "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."   More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically constructs hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”  Thus, when we begin to understand that we live and dwell in 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) -- then all of what we see and interact with, is aspects of Mind within the One Mind. 

In the same way that all of what we see in this world is shadow-images that is projected from an UNSEEN SOURCE, then so too is our brain -- and when it is recognized that there is nothing but Thought, we must then understand that the Whole of our physical body is a projection of Mind -- of which we only see approximately 10% of which our physical senses can see.   And this is why in the higher understanding of the Cosmology of Mind, we must recognize that the Great Diversity of Mind is achieved through opposite paradoxical spheres of Mind that see and understand from different and often conflicting perspectives -- all of which express their unique aspects of Mind through ALL the organs of the body -- which is why those who can be portrayed as the Scientist of the Mind has portrayed the Mind as Overlaying over the entire physical body as in the diagram of the Mind at the right.   And unless we begin to understand that in the same way that what we see is shadow-images projected from an UNSEEN SOURCE in an Etheric-Field, and we understand that the Mind of Man is also in the UNSEEN SOURCE of the Etheric-Field that surrounds the physical body -- and that the Whole of the body is an expression of Mind -- we will remain bound and shackled in the abyss of abject self-ignorance.     

What is presented to us in the image on the right, is the body of man overlain with the twelve spheres of mind in that pattern understood as the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).  What this conveys to us is the reality that from our toes, to the hairs on our head, the whole of our physical body is an expression of mind projected into this world from our own UNSEEN SOURCE OF SELF.  And Man is able to achieve the necessary elevated levels of Consciousness and Diversity of Mind, because each of the twelve spheres perceives and understands all of life from a different and often conflicting perspective of reality.   And what this means is that all the opinions, conflicting philosophies and theologies that divides mankind across a spectrum of an uncountable number of opinions and beliefs, all are based upon a valid perspective of Mind.  And thus the problem is seen in the reality that so long as the person only sees the shadow-images without understanding the Source, they will remain confused and fragmented in their thinking and understanding. 

Only when the Pattern of the Cosmology of Mind is understood, and the twelve spheres are brought into a condition of Balanced Wholeness where each paradoxical perspective is elevated into the segment of the Whole that it represents -- when all things seen and observed in their naked and pure expression -- can that condition of Enlightened Wholeness of Mind be achieved.  And this is why those who lack the necessary Wholeness are portrayed as existing in a state of sickness -- 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).  Which confirms the reality that all the divisions of Mind that is necessary to manifest the great diversity and depth of Consciousness that has the ability for man to comprehend higher reality, must be brought into an elevated level of Oneness and Wholeness across the spectrum of the twelve spheres of mind.  And what is portrayed by the overlain image of the Star of David, is the unity and manifestation of the Natural Laws that enable this Wholeness of Mind and Being to be brought about.   In fact, when the original Ebionite Nazirene disciples and followers of the man Jesus (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#Ebionite ) stated that he "...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) -- it was these Natural Laws of Consciousness portrayed in the Star of David overlying the Twelve Spheres of Mind of the Tree of Life, that enabled the man Jesus to become At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ).  And in confirmation of the statement that "...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", this fact was confirmed when 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).   Those who achieve the necessary Wholeness of Mind that enables them to observe and understand the Source of what they see, do not need the physician.   

The scriptures were authored by Mystics who understood the necessity of seeking Oneness and Wholeness of Mind.   ONLY when Wholeness of Mind is manifest, is the words of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas achieved when he stated: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   And wise men throughout the ages have long recognized that the Mystics who authored the scriptures, have no motivation to compose writings about the history of mankind.  The memorization of historical accounts and events cannot bring about the conscious integration of the twelve spheres of mind that is necessary to achieve Wholeness.  Therefore, wise men understand that there is no information from an historical perspective that would develop the mind to be able to observe what exists in what science has portrayed as the UNSEEN FIELD-SOURCE of the images we see with our physical senses.  In fact, by reading the Gospels as if the writings are historical -- thereby throwing away the Gospels as the Key of Knowledge in the manner of the Pharisees (see http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ) -- such an historical interpretation of the scriptures in the manner of the modern traditions of the Churches, renders the scriptures virtually worthless and spiritually impotent.  To the degree that it can be stated that the throwing away the scriptures by failing to properly utilize them as the Key of Knowledge, is for the most part spreading the diseases of mental and spiritual sickness -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick..."

The ancients who possessed self-knowledge understood that the mind of man has what can be portrayed as four (4) Gates -- each of which must be independently developed to function together to bring about Wholeness.  The mind of man can look outwardly through the Linear (male) spheres of mind -- look inwardly through the Intuitive (feminine) spheres of mind -- upward into the heavenly spheres of mind through such things as meditation -- or, allow one's mind to be controlled by the person's lower earthly carnal nature (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature ).  What the Gospels portray as the "narrow gate" through which the Inner Kingdom is to be entered, can only be entered through the Center -- and only by bringing the Mind into a condition of Wholeness -- 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).   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. 

It is impossible to achieve the necessary condition of Wholeness, so long as the person's mind is only functioning through the limitations imposed upon their thinking through the Linear (outward/male) spheres of mind.  When we go to school or learn in the academia environment, all our learning is via the outward-looking Linear spheres of mind.  When we learn from reading books, our learning is via the outward-looking Linear spheres of mind.  And when we learn only via outward sources, we fail to develop those areas of mind that have the ability to learn from tapping into the Inner Source -- and we fail to connect the upper with the lower realities of mind.   Therefore, the three of the four Gates of the Mind are atrophied because all our learning is via the shadow-images which we outwardly see in this realm.

There is absolutely nothing in academia that conveys to the student that all outward learning is from what the emerging body of science now understands to be incomplete secondary shadow-images.  If the Source of what we see exits in the UNSEEN-FIELD -- and if these images which modern science portrays as a "blemish" created by the intersecting forces within the UNSEEN-FIELD, then the physical objects that we see is created by intersecting positive and negative power-frequencies that create the images we see that the mystic portrays as shadow-images generated from an UNSEEN-SOURCE.  Because our limited physical vision can't see the Source of the images -- and our physical consciousness/mind does not understand how or why the intersecting forces in the Field generated the images that we see with our physical senses -- the whole of our thinking and understanding is disenfranchised from reality.   How can we know anything of any substance, when we are clueless of the Causal-Factors that exist in the UNSEEN-FIELD that our organic eyes and vision are blind to?   To the degree that we fail to even be aware of what the Causal-Factors are?  

A Causal-Factor can be portrayed as a Root Cause and Effect that takes place in the UNSEEN-FIELD, that creates a reality that we experience.  And because the vast majority of people are blind to the Causal-Factors, they fail to understand the event and/or experience that manifests in their life.   While many attribute the event they experience to luck, bad-luck, or the luck of the draw -- good or bad fortune -- an accident -- the Hand of God -- but without understanding the Causal-Factors, the person's conclusions is nearly always wrong.  Yet, if the person's development of mind had not been derailed, they would have seen and understood the Causal-Factors of the events they experience in their lives -- which would have enabled the person to make the best choices and take advantage of the opportunities in their life.  Which, from the perspective of the lives that mankind is presently living, that because the Causal-Factors are beyond our perceptive-vision and understanding, we have been rendered incapable of comprehending even the experiences of the lives we are presently living.  And so long as we remain blind to the Causal-Factors and the Intersecting-Forces in the UNSEEN-FIELD that brought these events about, we will remain blind and incapable of understanding the lives we are presently living. 

The basis of the Theory of Evolution which stands as the foundation of our fossilized scientism that has been proven to be in error, is taught to every student in virtually every grade level of academia, states that what is portrayed today as the shadow-images or blemish-images that we see with our physical eyes, have independently of any UNSEEN-SOURCE evolved through natural selection.  Evolution therefore states that there was no unseen supernatural (non-physical) force exerted upon physical matter in the development of the natural world.  But, in view of the fact that physical matter is now understood as a "blemish" created by the intersecting forces in the UNSEEN-FIELD, then the whole of the body of science that has been built upon the Theory of Evolution is wrong -- and actually, in reverse of man's true reality.   But even more important us the fact that the faux-belief has the effect of derailing and obstructing the person's development of mind.  Thereby making them blind to the higher reality in the UNSEEN-SOURCE-FIELD -- and in the impediment of the development of those  aspects of mind that possess the innate ability to access the higher UNSEEN-SOURCE of Higher Mind, the person is then and inhibited from understanding the Causal-Factors in the life they are presently living.

We lack the necessary functional understanding of how the mind develops, because of our flawed belief that the mind of an infant is empty and in need of being filled with the wisdom of man.  When in reality, because the infant is an UNDEVELOPED expression of its Higher-Self that already possesses Higher-Knowledge that eclipses all the wisdom of this shadow-world, when we teach the child with rote programming the opinions of men -- many of which are in error -- we not only alienate the child from their inner Higher-Self and the inner Truth-Source, but we impede development and atrophy those areas of mind that possess the ability to tap into this Inner Source of Truth and Knowledge.  Wise men of the past understood this reality that has only now been confirmed by modern science.  And their search for Truth and Knowledge therefore led them on the inner journey in pursuit of self-knowledge.  The core and essence of all valid religions and philosophies was the development of the person's mind  on a path that connected them with their Inner Source of Mind and Being.  But since men are taught by faux-teachers to look outwardly for what can only exist within them, all the religions and philosophies very quickly become corrupted and almost rendered worthless to bring about the original objective and purpose of the religious/philosophical teachings.    

A person's beliefs that they adopted and has formed the framework of their thinking, controls their search for truth, self-knowledge and their worldview.  Further, the structure of a person's thinking impacts and even dominates the development of their mind.  The mind cannot develop when the thinking of the person is directly controlled by religious beliefs based upon corrupted scriptures and man-made doctrines -- or intellectual reasoning founded upon faux-scientific theories that obstruct the inner development of the mind.  And if the structure of a person's beliefs is flawed, then that person's development of mind is impeded and often does remain totally derailed -- rendered incapable of any further development and growth.   And this is as true of the religious person who has embraced erroneous doctrines of belief -- a person who clings to an erroneous philosophy -- as well as a person who has built the structure of their thinking on faux-scientific principles and beliefs.   Why? Because there exists an Inner Source of Truth -- and what we would portray as the Enlightenment of the Mind is in fact a portrayal of a person who has consciously connected with that Inner Source through the process of achieving Wholeness of Mind.  Therefore, any belief or doctrine that a person clings to that inhibits the development of those areas of mind that brings about that Inner Connection, becomes an obstacle that derails the process of the development of that person's mind.  Which reality has the effect of opening the proverbial Pandora's Box of mind-development that confronts every person who has ever walked the face of the earth -- i.e., if you do not understand the shadow-images in this world that you see with your physical eyes, and fail to connect these images to their Source in the UNSEEN-FIELD -- then you will remain hopelessly disillusioned and lost.   And this is true whether the framework of your thinking is based upon religion, philosophy or science.       

  Scientism And The Folly Of The NDE And OOBE Critic: We can easily demonstrate the inability to comprehend even the most basic of man's higher spiritual realities, when we examine the theory of the pseudo-scientific authorities who for purely ideological and philosophical reasons, strive to explain away the Near Death Experience (NDE) as the illusions of an oxygen starved dying brain -- attempting to totally ignore many important factors which they can't even begin to come to terms with.    Why do the pseudo-intellectuals attempt to reject the validity of the NDE's that people have?   Because if these Near Death Experiences are valid, then the whole foundation of modern junk-science promoted by pseudo-intellectuals is a fraud built upon a bogus-lie.     

While it is true that many of the NDE's that people experience are limited to the immediate area of observing the dead body in the NDE, it is also true that there exists many other important accounts of NDE's that do not at all fit this mold -- and therefore, cannot at all be dismissed as a dying oxygen starved brain in the manner that the NDE critics attempt to do.   And one of those important factors that the skeptic ignores, is the accounts of the many people who experience an NDE, who find themselves floating through what we perceive to be concrete walls, where they then are able to both view and hear what transpires in this physical reality from a remote location that is far removed from their lifeless dead body.   Unlike the person who finds themselves merely floating above their body, these people observe and witness events that are taking place in other rooms, and sometimes at great distances from their dead physical body.    There is documented cases where, during an NDE, the person is able to report conversations between people they did not know was present outside where their body was being resuscitated.   Conversations that took place in other rooms that were far removed from the body in need of resuscitation.   If a person who has died in an accident or during an operation is able to accurately convey not only the people present, but also their conversations and the events that transpired at a location that is removed and not in the same  room as their lifeless body, then what this person experienced while dead cannot be rationally portrayed as an oxygen starved dying brain.   Yet, not only does the pseudo-intellectuals who ignore the facts in order to promote their ideology fail to even acknowledge the many accounts where a dying individual found themselves floating through what we perceive as concrete walls to accurately repeat the events in a distant place or waiting room -- but there have been cases where a person who had an NDE found themselves drawn to a remote place many miles from where their lifeless body was, and was able to repeat and convey to others the people and events that transpired at this remote location.    And because they can't explain the facts that their philosophical ideology inhibits them from acknowledging, their reasoning is fraudulent and bogus, and their intellectualism is counterfeit.   

A rational mind would conclude that if there was any truth to the skeptics theory that an NDE is the result of the illusions of an oxygen starved dying brain, then the people would not at all be able to report conversations and events that transpired remotely from their body.    But, in the manner of a typical True Believer,  no amount of proof or facts could cause these skeptics to examine their opinions from the perspective of the mounting evidence that proves them to be in error.    Why?  To simply acknowledge this one point, would have the effect of forcing the skeptic to re-examine the whole framework of their thinking and beliefs.    In fact, their whole Darwinist house of cards would come tumbling down before them.    And that our educational system permits these pseudo-experts to promote their easily disproven opinions without being challenged, represents a virtual crime being perpetrated against young innocent minds, that the government schools force children to be programmed into a model of thinking that is easily proven to be a bogus fraud. 

In addition to witnessing events and conversations that transpired at a remote location from the dying body, there have been numerous accounts where an encounter was made with a relative who the person experiencing the NDE did not know in that life.   Quoting from one such account documented in Psychology Today: I've just read Eben Alexander's recently published book Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey Into The Afterlife Dr. Alexander tells a vivid story of nearly dying of meningitis, during which, he says, he experienced a full-blown near-death experience (NDE) in which he visited a divine realm filled with love and knowledge.  I have no doubt that Alexander sincerely believes that he had the experience; a neurosurgeon who worked at Harvard Medical School isn't going to be a charlatan. He offers what is, within the story, evidence that it really happened: he met a woman whom he later found was his birth sister, now deceased.

In an account carried on ABC News Dr. Alexander presents his experiences:  Deep in coma, his brain infected so badly only the most primitive parts were working, Alexander claimed he experienced something extraordinary: a journey to Heaven.   "In every sense, of the word that's what my experience showed me," Alexander said.  "My first memories from when I was deep inside: I had no language, all my earthly memories were gone," he said. "I had no body awareness at all. I was just a speck of awareness in kind of a dark, murky environment, in roots or vessels or something. And I seemed to be there for a very long time -- I would say years.  "I was rescued by this beautiful, spinning, white light that had a melody, an incredibly beautiful melody with it that opened up into a bright valley," he added, "an extremely verdant valley with blossoming flowers and a just incredible, rich, ultra-real world of indescribable complexity."  Alexander said there was a young woman who soared across time and space with him on a butterfly wing and gave him a message to take back from Heaven.  "She looked at me, and this was with no words, but the concepts came straight into mind: You are loved; you are cherished; there's nothing you have to fear; there's nothing you can do wrong," he said.  God was there as a vast presence of love, Alexander said, and Alexander understood God through an orb of brilliant light.  "It was all of eternity and all of conscious existence," he said. "But it was this brilliant orb of light that was almost as necessary as a translator to bring in that message from the divine and the incredible."  After he recovered, Alexander, who was adopted, was shown a picture by his biological family of a sister he had never met or seen before. He recognized the sister as the young woman from Heaven.  "I looked up at that picture on my dresser that I had just got and I knew who my guardian angel was on the butterfly wing," he said. "It is the most profound experience I've ever had in this life."  Of course, many would call Alexander's experience a hallucination -- but not him.  "I know this is not a hallucination, not a dream, not what we call a confabulation," Alexander said. "I know that it really occurred, and it occurred outside of my brain."      

Perhaps even more telling is the NDE account contained in the book  Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of the Story by P.M.H. Atwater p. 37, where it is documented: "Four year old Jimmy John drowned in his parents' backyard swimming pool. He was an only child. Mom was in her late twenties; Dad was in his early thirties. Emergency crews arrived. Fifteen minutes later the boy breathed again. Mom was overcome with relief until Jimmy John blurted out for all to hear: "I met my little brother. He's over there', where I was, and he told me all about Mommy having him pulled out of her tummy when she was thirteen." This was not a grieving mother. Her abortion had long been forgotten. While her "two" sons became the best of friends, she had a nervious breakdown and her husband left her."

In yet another section of the foregoing book with respect to the accounts of children (from pp. 55-56) it is concluded: "Over half of the children experiencers in my research could remember their birth. Whenever possible I checked out those stories with parents, mostly mothers; I never found an error. One-third had pre-birth memory-most of those beginning at about six to seven months in utero. Medically, it has been shown that the fetus at twenty-six weeks or six months gestation experiences many sensations, including pain.  This medical discovery of fetal awareness directly applies to the majority of children in my research who reported the beginnings of their memory as a soul resident in human form while still inside the womb.   Some had recall of earlier than month six in utero, even of their conception, and of actively taking part as a spirit in choosing their own DNA. Most of those who spoke of remembering their conception also said they floated in and out of their mother's womb until finally 'settling in' when fetal formation was more complete (around the seventh or eighth month).   It's scary what some children remember from their pre-birth experiences in the womb. Things like heated debates and arguments, conditions in the home, even how their mother felt about her own life-and her thoughts! Emotionally charged issues are remembered readily, especially if the child's welfare is threatened (like the possibility of an abortion or because of an accident or assault on the mother). And a missing twin-that 'extra' who was never born or died or was reabsorbed by the mother because of being damaged or malformed-that being can return in a near-death scenario.  On occasion, the one who was aborted reappears."

In an article entitled Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling by Erica Goldson, she writes: "I contend that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme."    And then Erica Goldson concludes: "I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can't run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation."

The fact that ideologues have a government ordained license to promote one philosophical school of thought, while censoring all other positions, is a crime that is not only being perpetuated upon our children -- but is unconstitutional.   Yet, in the manner of what Erica Goldson portrays as "slaves to the system" that has been put into place by both sectarian and non-sectarian ideologues, we promote the spiritual death of our children even before they have had the opportunity to begin to truly live.   Again, quoting Erica Goldson: H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not "to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. ... Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim ... is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States."   Because crucial facts and information is being censored and withheld from the developing minds of children, the necessary centers of mind that must be nourished with higher impressions that give birth to elevated and higher areas of reason and intellect, remain dormant and atrophied.   And sadly, it becomes near impossible to free the mind of its initial programming at a more advanced age, when the patterns of thought has already been set and fossilized.   And when you come to understand that all essential truths in this world are often paradoxical -- immersed in a world of conflicting opinions and facts -- then you can begin to understand that the acceptance of one truth to the rejection of its opposite, is very much the eating of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality that brings death -- i.e.,  "...let the dead bury their own dead" (Matt 8:22 NKJ). 

In the same way that Robert Jastrow, an astrophysicist who is quoted in the foregoing, portrays the flaws in the big bang theory as the scientist's refusal to speculate beyond their predefined view of the world and the limitations of their manmade theories -- i.e., he is quoted as stating that: “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” -- the pseudo-authorities who attempt to ignore the implications of those in an NDE who witness events and conversations distant from their lifeless body, as their own rejection of the facts that cause them to "...refuse to speculate".    An oxygen starved dying brain which they promote as an explanation for the NDE -- portraying the dying process as a purely physical experience, confined to the consciousness of the dying body that is initiated by a lack of oxygen -- ignore what they refuse to acknowledge.   Why?   Because they have been traumatized by the facts -- and in view of the fact that the implications are a threat to everything they hold as truth -- they simply refuse to even speculate.    A dying oxygen starved brain simply cannot transcend time and space -- move through and beyond the barrier of physical walls -- and witness and overhear events that is taking place far remotely from their dead and lifeless body.   So, because their dying brain theory is itself gravely flawed, the skeptics simply ignore all the factual accounts, and refuse to speculate beyond the very limited borders of their self imposed beliefs.    Why?   In order to preserve their theory that man is nothing more than a mutated beast -- and is accountable to nothing higher than the satisfaction of his carnal appetites.

If the above facts pertaining to NDE accounts where people witness events and overhear conversations that take place at great distances from their dying body were not in and of itself enough to prove their modern flat-earth brain/mind theories in error, there exists people who learn to separate their mind from the brain, and these people learn to self-induce and bring about what is called an Out Of Body (OBE or OOBE) Experience.   And while an OOBE would be more of a New Age objective than those associated with the teachings of TheWay which is presented throughout this article -- it remains true that the OOBE enables the person to visit the countless astral realms that surround the earth that exist beyond this world, at the most immediate levels of the Field.   Moreover, their exists a growing body of evidence which substantiates the claims that a certain percentage of people are able to accurately recall previous lives that their soul has lived.  

What does the Bible state?    With respect to man's ability to release himself from the body-vessel, Paul writes that: "I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago-- whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows-- such a one was caught up to the third heaven.  And I know such a man-- whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows -- how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:2-4 NKJ).   What Paul is describing is an inner journey beyond the limitations of the physical body -- to what he portrays as the third level of heaven -- beyond the inner gate of the body and what Paul portrays as Paradise -- where he "...heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter."   That other disciples of TheWay who were called Gnostics, brought about this same transformation of body and mind that enabled them to enter the Inner Kingdom ( http://GateOfEden.com ), represents an important aspect of the original spiritual objectives of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay.    Jesus taught that there is One Teacher -- and you must learn only from this One Teacher (see The True Prophet) -- and the substance of Jesus' teachings of TheWay, was to enable the disciple to enter the "narrow gate" within themselves, and learn the Sacred Secrets of Creation directly from the One Teacher.  

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

The objectives of the teachings of TheWay that are presented throughout this web article, is to go within the mind (in contradistinction to external astral realms), and open the inner door to the soul -- and what I call, the Realm of Souls on the Being of Light web site ( http://BeingOfLight.com ).   But even this would be considered elementary.   The objective of the original Ebionite Nazirene teachings of Jesus and TheWay, was to so transform the body, that the inner walls of division become negated, and the physical mind becomes united with the soul -- or higher soul-self, who is the true being that each of us is.   But to accomplish this, you must not only open the mind and release it from it's physical limitations -- you must also redirect your vital life-force energy, so that it is no longer drained and lost in the outer world -- and you must develop those areas of mind (not brain) that connects with your own higher reality that is not a part of the earth's vibration.   Ultimately, you want to bring about the next stage of birth, which we would call soul-birth.

Academia and a very large segment of science simply fails to acknowledge the implications of the emerging body of science that proves that our fossilized science which was based on the Theory of Evolution to be in grave error.  If it is true that a person whose body ceased to sustain life remained alive out of the body -- and was able to move through what to us is concrete walls -- moving into a distant waiting room where they then were able not only see who was present, and what they were saying -- then the whole of our scientific paradigm upon which academia has built the framework of their wisdom and knowledge which is fabricated upon a limited three-dimensional model, is fatally flawed.   Why is this important?  Because as a culture and society, it will remain impossible for us to advance beyond the fossilized scientific paradigm of the past, until we are prepared to move beyond the error of Darwinism that has been taught to every elementary student throughout all the years of their academic experience. 

  Wholeness And The Great Question Of Mind: Thus, what we are being presented with is the great foundational paradigm of Mind that confronts all of mankind in every aspect of his life with the enigmatic question: Is the mind of an infant empty and in need of being filled with the wisdom of man?  Or does the infant possess an inner Source of Knowledge that the child possesses the innate ability to tap into?   And thus the answer: What if to some degree, both sides of the paradoxical equation are true?  And man's great diversity of mind that enables him to see and understand from all sides of the equations of life, is based upon the reality that separate segments of mind function differently -- some with the ability to look outwardly, others with the ability to look inwardly -- and true mental development can only be achieved when both the outward and inward looking segments of mind are equally balanced, matured and working together in Wholeness. 

The problem is that the emerging body of modern science has confirmed the reality presented by Plato and other Mystics that, what is allegorically portrayed as "shackles" that inhibit organic man from seeing the UNSEEN SOURCE, is true of his own mind -- and his normal consciousness is like the small tip of an iceberg that protrudes above the water-line, is supported by an immense unseen foundation.  But what this also means is that the whole structure of our sciences, has been built upon a gravely flawed foundation which only acknowledged the shadow-images, while totally rejecting even the existence of what the modern findings of science has now recognized as the UNSEEN SOURCE that is being projected into this realm as an incomplete shadow-image.   In the words of Einstein which he 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”.  When the ancient men of wisdom expressed the need to Know Thyself, it was the UNSEEN and UN-MANIFEST SELF that they were making reference to as man's True Source of Being.  Or, in the words of Jesus as 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".  The Gospel account of Jesus teaches that all of mankind are "born blind" to their own higher reality (see Tree Causes Of Blindness @ http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ).  The Gospel account teaches that all of mankind has been stricken with Spiritual Amnesia http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#SpiritualAmnesia -- that can only be overcome by bringing about Wholeness of Mind (see  Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness ) -- but because our thinking, beliefs and mindset have limited us to acknowledging only the shadow-images while ignoring the UNSEEN SOURCE, we remain prisoners to our own self-imposed ignorance.  Thus, the whole foundational framework upon which our science and culture has been erected, is gravely flawed to the degree that it is our own mindset that has shackled mankind into a self-imposed state of intellectual poverty.    

Regardless of which side of the empty or full paradoxical paradigm of mind you choose, it is true that the mind of the child is undeveloped -- and for the child to achieve their full intellectual potential, the child's mind must be slowly developed -- level upon level of advancement.  Therefore, when we instruct elementary school students, we present the information in an age and grade-level appropriate manner.   We would not even attempt to teach elementary school students physics, trigonometry, and calculus at an age level where they must first learn basic math.  Which means that the child's mind must be developed -- i.e., developed to function outwardly, and this is also true with respect to the child's ability to look inwardly.  And therein lies the problem with respect to enabling the mind to see into what modern science now understands to be the UNSEEN SOURCE FIELD.  Thus, the learning environments that we immerse a child into, is totally based upon the mind-empty paradigm -- with absolutely no thought to assisting the child to tap into a pre-existent inner source of knowledge.  Which means that at best, the process of educational development that we immerse the child into, not only totally neglects the development of those attributes of mind that enable the child to look inwardly and develop the ability to tap into a pre-existing inner source of knowledge -- but our academic and philosophical culture actually suppresses and even atrophies these inward-looking aspects of mind.  We ignore the fact that, in the same way that a child cannot naturally think in the perspective of advanced mathematics and scientific formula, neither can the mind of the child tap into an inner source of knowledge, unless those attributes of mind that enables the child to look inwardly, has been developed.  In the case of most people, in the same way that the areas of mind that look outwardly and react to outward stimulation must be developed, so too does those areas of mind that innately possess the ability to look inwardly.        

Jesus taught that the Kingdom of God is within you -- that there is an Inner Teacher (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ) -- and that this Inner Source of Higher Knowledge that can be portrayed as Divine Manna, cannot be learned from another person.  This body of Higher Knowledge that is the Foundation of the Inner Kingdom that Jesus declared the existence of, cannot be read in any of the books of mankind -- neither can this Sacred (Self)-Knowledge be taught to us by a teacher -- and can only be received DIRECTLY from the SOURCE, in accord with our own ability to receive this Higher Sacred Knowledge directly from the Inner Source (see The Divine Manna - The Gospels - The foundation of the New Covenant http://BrotherOfJesus.org#NewCovenant ).

Einstein made one of the most important observations that modern intellectuals neither understand, nor can they in any manner even begin to come to terms with.   Einstein stated: "The intuitive (inward-looking) mind is a sacred gift and the rational (outward-looking) mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."   Thus, the question? If Einstein is correct, then how does one set about developing the intuitive mind?   In recognizing the dilemma of mankind, Einstein acknowledged that: “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”   Why?  Because what Einstein portrays as the rational servant does not even possess the necessary insight to understand both the reality of the intuitive gift, or the Great Source of Knowledge that the undeveloped intuitive resources of the mind of man has the innate potential of tapping into -- which prompted Einstein to acknowledge that “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” 

Does one go to a traditional school environment that suppresses what Einstein portrays as the forgotten intuitive gift -- while programming the rational servant with what often amounts to little more than cultural and politically correct propaganda?   With great wisdom and vision Einstein stated "Only those who can see the invisible can do the impossible."    But since the vast majority of modern scientists reject even the existence of the invisible -- promoting the position that only what you see with your physical senses is tangible and real -- it is the mainstream of the scientific community that has rendered itself impotent with respect to any real depth of perception and understanding.  

To man's own detriment, the above statements are largely ignored by the vast majority of linear-thinking scientists and their religious counterparts.   Thus, the all-important question that modern man must come to terms with: Does an unseen dimension exist that the (suppressed) Intuitive Mind can tap into and obtain answers and important truths that the linear-intellectual mind is blind to?   And if it does, what course of action must we take to develop the ability to perceive and tap into the unseen?   If it is true that we are only seeing a very partial and fragmentary vision of our own true reality -- and it is within the scope of man's innate abilities to develop this facility of mind that enables the individual to perceive an unseen reality that is beyond the limits of man's undeveloped physical organic senses -- then how can we continue to ignore and do what suppresses the development of this important resource of mind and being?   With respect to the invisible, when it is understood that what is being made reference to is a blindness that encompasses all of mankind in a condition that Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- which is parallel to the analogy of the illusions of Plato's Cave that has entrapped mankind in a shadow-world that he does not understand the nature and reality of -- then the reality of these words spoken by both the scientist and the mystic becomes an obstacle that is imperative to overcome and prevail over its limitations.    After all, we can't claim to know or understand anything, if we have so limited our vision of reality that we only see and observe a fragmentary perception of man's true reality. 

What is Anamnesis?  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 has often been portrayed as being spiritually dead, the word 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. 

All of modern academia is immersed in the process of teaching the student the accumulated knowledge of mankind.  There is absolutely no thought that within the mind of each student is a source of knowledge that is not only greater than all the accumulated wisdom of man, but that this inner source possesses the factual answers that remains unknown to man's greatest academic scholars and experts.   Yet, the modern body of emerging science has thrown the proverbial monkey-wrench into the whole structure of academia.  Where both the science of man's past and academia have portrayed physical matter as concrete, this has been proven false in the reality portrayed in 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”.  But is this fact has been known by many men of wisdom throughout the ages.  In the book, Cosmic Consciousness, Richard M Bucke conveys his experiences with the Inner Light (see Wikipedia).  In 1872, after an evening of stimulating conversation with a friend in the countryside, Richard M Bucke, was traveling back to London in a buggy. He relates: "I was in a state of quiet, almost passive enjoyment. All at once, without warning of any kind, I found myself wrapped around as it were by a flame-coloured cloud. For an instant I thought of fire, some sudden conflagration in the great city; the next, I knew that the light was within me. Directly afterward came upon me a sense of exultation, of immense joyousness accompanied by an intellectual illumination quite impossible to describe. Into my brain streamed one momentary lightning—flash of the Divine Splendor which has ever since lightened my life; upon my heart fell one drop of Divine Bliss, leaving thenceforward for always an aftertaste of heaven.  Among other things, I did not come to believe: I saw and knew that the Cosmos is not dead matter but a living Presence, that the soul of man is immortal, that the universe is so built and ordered that without any peradventure all things work together for the good of each and all, that the foundation principle of the world is what we call love, and that the happiness of everyone in the long run is absolutely certain."  Dr. Richard Bucke then states: "I learned more within the few seconds that illumination lasted than in all my previous years of study and I learned much that no study could ever have taught."  

Is this acknowledgement of the existence of an Inner Light which exceeds the knowledge of mankind by Richard Bucke any different than that of Giordano Bruno who stated: "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."   Like Dr. Bucke, Giordano Bruno acknowledged the immorality of the Soul: "The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body" (see 30 Quotes On Reincarnation).  

The inability of academia to even acknowledge this Inner Source of Knowledge that eclipses the cumulative wisdom of man, is openly demonstrated in the P.B.S. Series: Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.  The series presented Giordano Bruno as having a dream about an infinite universe. But the most deceptive statement of all was the statement that Bruno's conclusions were based upon a series of "lucky guesses". When in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. And in the failure of the television series to reveal Bruno's source, has insured that modern man remains alienated from this source. How, Giordano Bruno, was able to arrive at his quasi-scientific findings, should have been the main focus on his life. Why? Because every person who walks the face of the earth can access the same Source of infinite Knowledge that Bruno did -- and it is this undeveloped and often ignored innate human ability that everyone has the ability to access, that should have been the primary focus of the plight of Giordano Bruno and how he arrived at his uniquely advanced vision of the universe. Why? Because this self-knowledge pertaining to the Cosmology of Mind and Being has the potential to free all of mankind from the shackles of ignorance. An ignorance that has been promoted by the both academia and the Church, as well as the science of man's past.

A midwife understands the process of birth, and creates an environment that facilitates the NATURAL birth of the child.  In the same way that a student who can't do basic math cannot perform complex calculations, students who have never been exposed to the reality that within them is a pre-existing Source of Knowledge that they can develop the ability to tap into, remain alienated from that Inner Source -- often for the whole of their lives.  Therefore, because their thinking and mindset has atrophied those inward-looking attributes of mind that must be developed and matured in order to tap into the Inner Source, it becomes virtually impossible for them to overcome the mental-blockages that have been imposed upon them by their one-sided education that is based upon the mind-empty paradigm that has now been proven to be in grave error by the emerging body of science. 

When rightly understood, what is presented in the above portrayal of Anamnesis by philosophers such as Plato, is in reality only an elementary beginning to tapping into our Inner Source of Mind and Being.   Re-examining and quoting the above excerpt presented in The Mental Barrier http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#MentalBarrier :  The core of every valid spiritual religion is the process that the seeker must embrace to begin to observe --- and eventually enable the person to cross over the Natural Barrier of Mind that renders all of organic man ignorant and alienated from their own True-Self.  The author and visionary Philip K. Dick whose Soul had lived as one of the first century followers of Jesus, wrote with respect to the original disciples of Jesus that:  "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here.  He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)."   What does this mean?  When we make reference to Plato and the analogy of Plato's Cave, what Plato accomplished was to bring about the ability to attain the necessary second-sight which has often been portrayed as the "eyes to see", which enables the person to begin to gaze beyond the Natural Barrier into the UNSEEN Source that organic man is blind to unless he begins to develop those areas of mind that look inwardly.  In contradistinction to what Philip Dick portrays as mystery religions, Jesus taught Wholeness of Mind to the degree that the subsequent stages of birth could be achieved, thereby permitting the seeker/disciple to simultaneously dwell in both the UNSEEN SOURCE, while still manifest in this world.  And when rightly understood, what has been allegorically portrayed as the Second Coming, Armageddon or the End Times, is in fact the completion of the process of self-transformation that enables the person to overcome the Natural Barrier of mind that separates the person they are in this world and their un-manifest True-Self -- and ultimately become At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God ( http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ).  Which means that the primary focus of the Church on the Second Coming of Christ is based upon a total misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the Gospel teachings (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes ).  

 

The Grave Flaw In The Atheist Mindset: When I put forth the reality that modern science has prove the wisdom of the mystic, few Atheists are able to comprehend this statement because they don't understand the inherent ramifications of modern scientific findings.   When Einstein stated 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” -- the question must be posed: What was different about the new emerging body of reality that would prompt Einstein to state that the whole theoretical foundation of traditional physics was obsolete and in error?  And this statement of Einstein was supported by physicist Niels Bohr in his statement 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.”  Which goes to the very heart of man's emerging reality in 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”.

The problem is that the vast majority of Atheists who are locked into a Linear mindset and thinking, are simply not prepared to understand the reality that what man sees when he looks out at the world is Projected Thought.  And as Einstein notes, this reality changes everything that Linear-minded people think they see when they look out at the world.  Why?  Because we are dwelling in what can be portrayed as a Great Mind, and everything we see is a projected thought, we can now begin to understand that in the same way that the human sense of hearing is within a certain spectrum of soul-frequencies, so too is his sense of vision -- i.e., our vision is limited to a certain spectrum of frequency -- and when the scientist makes reference to the UNSEEN-FIELD that is the SOURCE of what we see with our physical senses, what is being made reference to is the frequencies that are outside human organic perception.  Further, when I write the statement that modern science has confirmed the wisdom of the mystic, what the mystic states is that mankind possesses the ability to develop innate areas of mind that enables him to perceive beyond the frequency limitations of organic human consciousness.  And by developing their latent areas of mind, the mystic can see those frequencies outside of the spectrum of organic human consciousness.  But what this also means is that in the same way that there is great variance in the sense of hearing between different people, this same great variance also exists in man's sense of vision -- thereby enabling some people to see outside the vast majority of the population of mankind.         

 

 

  

 

 

 

The Folly Of The Theory of Evolution: Darwin's assumptions on how mankind came into being is more than a theory, because it has tragically been used to program the minds of impressionable young students and undermined the the whole structure of their thinking.  Why?  because the framwork of thinking and life that academia has built upon Darwin's assumptions, has shackled our cultural thinking to the dungeons of abject (self) ignorance.  

Mankind has been strangled by linear-minded fundamentalist who have narrowmindedly inhibited man's true advancement.   Religious Fundamentalists who refused to consider the spirit of their scriptures, have been in league with Fundamentalist who have refused to examine the Natural World with any genuine depth of investigation -- waging war against each other -- narrow-minded Fundamentalist against narrow-minded Fundamentalist -- while rejecting all rational thought and factual evidence presented by those who possessed any real and genuine understanding on the true nature and reality of mankind.   

In the same way that the linear-minded religious Fundamentalist has alienated the congregation of believers from the very purpose of the Gospels and the life the people are living (see The Cosmology Of The Gospels http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com ), so too has linear-minded scientists alienated the people from the truth of their own Higher Soul-Reality.  By looking only to the physical world as the source of life, they have created a fraudulent body of pseudo-theories and faux-facts that has limited and enslaved the minds of man -- i.e., as stated in the analysis of Plato's Cave that "...the human condition is forever bound to the impressions that are received through the senses... we cannot somehow break free from the bonds of our human condition - we cannot free ourselves from phenomenal state just as the prisoners could not free themselves from their chains" (see Allegory Of The Cave).  When rightly understood, the fossilized science of man's past has set forth the theory that all of life begins in the shadow-image that has been projected from what modern physicists portray as a "blemish", the source of which is in an UNSEEN FIELD that the mystic portrays as SPIRIT -- and the theories of man's past science has attempted to find that all of life has evolved out of the shadow-image projected from the UNSEEN SOURCE that modern science admits that organic man is blind to.  Again, when the statement by Einstein is evaluated in conjunction with the reality of Plato's Cave 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.”  Science has attempted to ignore the Source-Field -- theorizing that only what is portrayed by the physicist as a "blemish" created by the lines of force within the UNSEEN FIELD, is responsible for all that exists. 

Charles Darwin possessed absolutely no knowledge of quantum mechanics and physics, or the inner workings of the sub-atomic world.   Neither was Darwin a mystic such as Plato who developed the ability to gaze into what modern science portrays as the UNSEEN SOURCE.  Darwin based his Theory of Evolution on his observations of the natural world.   But today we now can demonstrate that Darwin's vision was so incomplete, that it can be classified as totally spurious.   In the words of Niles Eldredge of the American Museum of Natural History: “The old explanation that the fossil record was inadequate is in itself an inadequate explanation.”   Why?   The fossil record is inadequate because everything that we see and perceive in this realm is directly caused by patterns of force being exerted upon matter from beyond the bounds of this three-dimensional world in which we presently dwell.  And the fact that the fossil record failed to support Darwin's conclusions, is openly acknowledged in his own words where he wrote: "Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain, and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory" (Charles Darwin, On The Origin Of Species). According to Darwin's theory, the geological record should be full of species that are slowly increasing in complexity over time.  Since evolution relies on time, chance, and incremental steps, sudden leaps are not possible -- which demonstrates that the fossil record itself directly contradicts the theory of evolution!   And even if a proverbial missing link could be found, this would not in any manner negate the fact that it is the forces in the Ćtheric Field that has brought about all changes and variations of life-forms that we observe in the physical world.

Because whales and sea mammals have what appears to be atrophied legs under the surface of their fish-like bodies, we teach our children that their ancestors were once land animals with legs that migrated back into the water.  We then attempt to teach our children that these animals with legs then swam around the lakes and oceans until their legs disappeared, and they evolved fish-like bodies. Do you realize the implications of this?  Ultimately, what they are saying, is that if a group of people enter the water, and stay there for millions of years, they will eventually become mermaids. It is of course one thing to theorize that a land animal would enter into the water in search of food, but in order for them to become the equivalent of a mermaid, they would not only have to sleep in the water, and never return to land for rest, but they would have to somehow convince their offspring over the course of millions of years to reject their natural land-based habitat, and remain in a watery alien world.  In the first place, when a land mammal goes into deep water -- i.e., a body of water that would induce evolutionary changes because the land mammal no longer uses his legs over the course of millions of years -- and remains there in a world that his physical body is not adapted to, he is not only vulnerable, but in a short time a reasonable person would have to conclude that he would become shark-bate. No mammal with legs could survive for an extended period of time -- much less a large group of mammals with legs over the course of millions of years.

What we see in the perception of the whale, is a shadow-image that is being projected by what modern science now portrays as the the UNSEEN FIELD that is the SOURCE of the projected image of the whale.   Which means that the body of the whale did not evolve from a land-based mammal that had legs -- but rather, the image of the whale has been formed by the Forces in the UNSEEN SOURCE FIELD that projected a mammal with fins into this shadow-realm.   If what we see with our physical eyes is a "blemish" created within the UNSEEN FORCES in the FIELD, then the arrangement and makeup of the image of the whale that we see, can only be understood from the perspective as to why the Unseen Source projected the fined mammal image into the "blemish" that we observe with our physical senses.    

Modern science has proven the science of man's past to be in error.  While the Theory of Evolution has been taught to all the students, modern science has now proven the foundation of the Theory to be in grave error.   Why?  Because the Theory of Evolution is based upon a foundation that rejects all non-physical influence in the creation and evolution of this world.   Through observation of nature, Darwin attempted to demonstrate that this world is the result of a series of accidents and natural occurrences and selection -- and that there are no unseen forces at work that have molded and influenced this world.   Modern physicists and the emerging body of science has demonstrate that the linear-minded scientist whose thinking is focused only on the shadow-images of this realm is in grave error -- thus, demonstrating that the True Source of what we observe with our physical senses is a type of projection from a Supernatural Source that remains beyond man's organic senses to perceive and understand.   As stated above (see ABOVE): In contradistinction to Theory of Darwin, modern physicists have now proven that the Source of what we see is in the UNSEEN SOURCE-FIELD which mystics throughout the ages has portrayed as Spirit -- and what we see with our physical senses, can be portrayed as a "blemish" that has formed by the interactions of the Forces in the UNSEEN FIELD.   Which means that modern science has not only proven the Theory of Evolution and all other scientific theories based upon what is seen by man's physical senses to be in grave error, but they have also proven the analogy of Plato's Cave to be to be correct (see Plato's Cave ).   And in the same way that modern physicists have portrayed what we see as concrete matter, is a "blemish" that is being projected out of an UNSEEN FIELD, Plato's Cave portrays what organic man sees as a "shadow-image" cast from an UNSEEN SOURCE.  Therefore I can demonstrate the error of Darwinism by simply stating: Does your shadow evolve and initiate change to you?  Or do you evolve and initiate change that forms the shadow-image that you cast?   And it is because we are seeing and interacting with projected blemishes or shadow-images, that the Gospel of Thomas states: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."    A variation on the foregoing statement is contained in the Oxyrhynchys Papyri which reads 5) Jesus said: "Recognize what is before your face and that which is hidden from you will be revealed to you. For there is nothing hidden which shall not be made manifest, nor buried which shall not be raised."    

When the findings of the modern physicists are understood, what we are left with is proof of the analogy of Plato's Cave (see Cave).   What Plato's Cave states is the same exact truths that have now been confirmed by the modern physicists who portray what man observes as concrete matter being a type of "blemish" that is created by the UNSEEN forces in an (Ćtheric) Field.  In the analogy of Plato's Cave, what man sees in the form of concrete matter is portrayed as a shadow-image that has been cast from an UNSEEN SOURCE.   Thus, the analogy of Plato's Cave is the mystics attempt to explain what the modern physicist is only now confirming.   And it is ultra-important to understand why man's organic senses can't perceive the Source -- and only sees and understands an incomplete perception of higher reality through projected images. 

 

 

 

Modern science has proven the above in what is portrayed as A New Theory Of Consciousness wherein it is now understood that the Mind of Man is not the brain -- but rather, our mind exists in a (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 actual physical brain itself.   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."  

For years as a Mystic, I have been writing that the mind is in the Ćtheric Field that surrounds the Body and works through the Brain and other Mental Spheres of the body (see Tree of Life).  I have demonstrated that this is the means by which a person's mind survives physical death when it is released from the body -- it is how a person has a Near Death Experience and finds themselves outside the body -- it is how a person has an Out Of Body Experience and consciously exits the body -- and it is how the consciousness of the spiritual seeker and mystic can enter within the mind and enter the Kingdom which Jesus taught is within us. 

We know today after the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, that the true source of the New Covenant teachings associated with the historical man Jesus was the Essenes -- who were spiritual mystics who had very little in common with the Jews (see The Reality Of The Original Gospels).   And the position on the Soul is presented by the Josephus, who had lived among the Essenes -- and was a contemporary of the man Jesus, he became an Ebionite -- stated that the Essenes: “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again.  For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”  Thus, the Soul pre-existed the physical body which was then used as a vehicle -- i.e., "...united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...” (see  The Biblical Foundation Mindset).   In fact, in all my writings I state that I have been able to draw upon my Soul's past life as the Brother of Jesus for the first-hand facts as an actual witness in the first century that I have extensively written about (see An Inconvenient Truth).  And how I have journeyed into the Inner Kingdom to be taught by both my Higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ) which my consciousness in this world is a projection of, and the Indwelling Logos/Son of God who the original followers and disciples of Jesus portrayed as The One Teacher ( http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ).  And throughout all my writings I have warned the Christian world that modern faith-based Christianity has virtually nothing in common with the original Gospel teachings (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma ).  Further, I have proven that the religious authorities who Christians have been listening and adhering to, are virtually clueless as to the real facts of the first century Gospel environment (see Original Gospel ).  And while the adherents of the fossilized pseudo-science of man's recent past has rejected all that I have written because they base their thinking on a Darwinian framework of modern of consciousness where the physical brain is the mind, modern physics which is light-years ahead of the pseudo-science of the past, has just proven what I have been writing for the past 40 years to be correct.  As with matter and all that we perceive and observe in this world, the mind is in the Ćtheric Field that surrounds the body and works though the Mental Spheres while body maintains physical life -- and is released from this bodily connection at physical death.  Further, the primary purpose of the Original Gospel Teachings is to enable the seeker/disciple to enter the Inner Kingdom. And modern science has now proven what I write to be correct.

When the Gospel states that those who have not put on the required "wedding garment" and come to The Call to the Wedding Feast (see TheCall ), the great truth that is being portrayed is the reality that you are presently dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being ( http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org ) -- unable to perceive into the Ćtheric Field that is the True Source of not only all that you see in the outer world, but also your True-Self.   In the same way that physical matter is temporal -- and can be portrayed as a "blemish" caused by the intersecting forces of the Field -- this is also true of your own physical body, mind and consciousness which has been portrayed as the physical-self, the lower-self, the earthly-self, the ego-self and the false-self.  And this is why it states at John 12:25: "Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity."  Why?  Because the being or person you are in this world is the lower or earthly self that begins your present sojourn in this world as An Embryonic Soul-Image, of your Higher Self or True-Self that is your Soul-Self that is not -- and cannot -- manifest physically in this world of physical matter.

Parallel to the Gospel portrayal of the "outer darkness" of mind and being that those who have failed to put on the required Wedding Garment are thrown into, is the analogy of Plato's Cave (see The Cave).  In the same way that modern science portrays matter in its material form as a "blemish" created by the forces in the UNSEEN FIELD, in the analogy of Plato's Cave mankind is a prisoner who sees only shadow-images of a higher UNSEEN REALITY.  The images that mankind sees with his physical senses are incomplete allegorical shadow-images, because the three-dimensional images in this realm are projections from the Source-Field where they exist as twelve-dimensional realities of higher mind and being that cannot be expressed in the three-dimensional images of this world.   As an example: Our True-Self of which we are a projection, is a Being Of Light that being the balance of male and female, is neither of the two genders.   Yet, this genderless higher nature cannot be expressed in this three-dimensional realm -- wherein, the Soul must them manifest itself as either a man or woman.   In the same way that the True Being that we are which is neither male nor female -- but is the balance of both paradoxical opposite genders -- neither can facts and higher truth be embraced and known so long as these same divisions exist (see The Truth Cannot Exist In The Natural World ). 

 

 

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 (see Sexual Immorality  http://SoulSelf.org#SexualImmorality ).  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 our 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”.        

Einstein basically stated the same thing as the above parable of the fishes -- as well as the analogy of Plato's Cave -- when he wrote in a letter (see Letter) where he made the profound statement with respect to the connectedness of all of mankind and the reality of this world, both seen and unseen where he wrote: "A human being is a part of the whole, called by us 'Universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security."

For the vast majority of people who look only to the outer physical world for their facts and truths which they then build the whole foundation of their thinking and mindset upon, they have erected an impenetrable barrier between themselves and the Higher Truths that mankind must possess essential knowledge of, in order to answer even the most fundamental questions and answers to the nature and reality of man's existence.   Which means that if we fail to understand the above quotation of Einstein, then we are intellectual cave-men dwelling in the dark-ages of profound ignorance.  In the same way that Einstein portrayed man as dwelling in a type of prison -- we fail to understand that this prison is self-imposed -- and the reality of this self-imposed prison and it's escape is the objective of Plato's Cave of Illusions (see above Plato The Physicist ).  And the Gospel account of Jesus also portrayed the reality of this world as a prison that had to be escaped (see The Prison http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#ThePrison ).   And when the above is understood in relation to Einstein's statement where he 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” .   Especially where he made the profound statement “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).  Which confirms the above statement that man's organic vision where he sees himself as being separate from other both other people and nature, is an  "...optical delusion of his consciousness" -- and that this "...delusion is a kind of prison for us".  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”.  Which means that we are not only all connected at a deeper level of our own minds, but that we dwell in the Mind of God. 

Professor Richard Tarnas (see Einstein's Letter) stated the problem of man's blindness to his own higher soul-reality when he wrote “For the deepest passion of the Western mind has been to reunite with the ground of its own being. The driving impulse of the West’s masculine consciousness has been its dialectical quest not only to realize itself, to forge its own autonomy, but also, finally, to come to terms with the great feminine principle in life, and thus to rediscover its connection to the whole” (Richard Tarnas, 1996, p.443).  Which is explained by Einstein when he 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."  Where the masculine or linear consciousness looks outwardly and sees only the illusionary images of this realm, it is the Feminine Intuitive that is able to gaze into what is portrayed as the UNSEEN FIELD -- i.e., as stated by Einstein: "There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality”.    And that the whole foundation of traditional science is based upon the Linear/Masculine/Outward perception of reality -- rejecting the Intuitive/Feminine/Inward perception of reality that the outward linear rejects because it is non-physical and cannot be seen with man's physical eyes.   

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, Pythagoras and Jesus 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 article on Self-Knowledge 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 ) -- which, when understood, is the acknowledgement of human organic blindness (see Human Blindness http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#_Science_Acknowledges_Human_Blindness ) -- 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 (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ), 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.  

 

 

 

With respect to what can be portrayed as The Science Delusion, few people understand that the vast majority of modern scientists are atheists.  Why are they atheists?  Because they have limited their search for facts and knowledge to what can be portrayed as (physical-only) material-science -- regardless of any and all facts presented to them.  Which means that when you send your child into schools that base their curriculum on the findings of modern cultural science, the curriculum material programs the child with an insurmountable ideological and philosophical barrier that inhibits any mental development beyond a very low-level of human cognitive comprehension.  To the degree that even when confronted with higher facts and truths, they will remain incapable of overcoming the mental barrier that atrophies aspects of their mind that is necessary to develop what can be portrayed as Wholeness of perceptive-vision and thinking.    

When rightly understood, the same linear-fundamentalist mindset that opposed religious men of reason and intellect, has been at the helm of man's scientific search for answers, and their narrow-minded thinking has totally inhibited all scientific advancement.   What is a linear-fundamentalist?  The linear-fundamentalist states that only what is physically seen and physically provable in a laboratory or controlled environment is real -- and to prove the validity of their positions, the linear-fundamentalist attempts to dismiss all phenomena that cannot be examined within the spectrum of the three-dimensions of this physical world.   In an article entitled 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."

Even when confronted with the facts, the vast majority of scientists who limit their search for answers to the three physical dimensions that the modern physicists portray as a "blemish" or shadow-image created by the intersecting forces in an UNSEEN Field -- i.e., an example is the statement of physicists such as Walter Thirring about the nature and reality of physical 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” (see above, The Finding Of The Physicists).  And as demonstrated above (see We Are All Connected Within The Mind OF God ), at a deeper level of consciousness we are all connected as proven in Bell's Theorem -- i.e., “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”.   Yet, even when confirmation of the emerging body of modern physicists is proven, the majority of linear-fundamentalist scientists simply cannot even begin to conceive of the Wholeness of man's True Reality.  These linear-thinking scientists continue to look only in the "blemish" -- ignoring the statement that "...Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field” for their answers to an emerging world-view that has relegated their thinking to that of the junk-heap of the scientific dark ages of man's past.  As an example: Quoting from the article Cosmos - Giordano Bruno - The Great Lie Of The TV Series : "The series presented Giordano Bruno as having a dream about an infinite universe. But the most deceptive statement of all was the statement that Bruno's conclusions were based upon a series of 'lucky guesses'. When in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. And in the failure of the television series to reveal Bruno's source, has insured that modern man remains alienated from this source. How, Giordano Bruno, was able to arrive at his quasi-scientific findings, should have been the main focus on his life. Why? Because every person who walks the face of the earth can access the same Source of infinite Knowledge that Bruno did -- and it is this undeveloped and often ignored innate human ability that everyone has the ability to access, that should have been the primary focus of the plight of Giordano Bruno and how he arrived at his uniquely advanced vision of the universe. Why? Because this self-knowledge pertaining to the Cosmology of Mind and Being has the potential to free all of mankind from the shackles of ignorance. An ignorance that has been promoted by the Church, as well as modern science."    

The Cosmos TV Series portrayed Bruno as the only man who understood the infinite universe in the time-frame in which he lived -- attributing this wisdom to "lucky guesses".  Ignoring the fact that Bruno explained that every person who has ever walked the face of the earth has the same ability to know and understand the Truth of man's realty that he had come to know.  So what is the facts and the truth?  Where the vast majority of linear-thinkers are incapable of thinking outside of their ideological and philosophical box, Bruno presented an explanation for what modern physicists have recently discovered.  Which means that the linear-thinkers who attributed the wisdom of Giordano Bruno to "lucky guesses" -- as well as the large body of scientists who can't think beyond their ideological and philosophical barriers fabricated out of fossilized science that has been proven to be gravely defective -- have become an anchor to the advancement of mankind.   

In the same way that modern physicists have recognized that whatever exists in this three-dimensional physical realm is a projected image which they portray as a "blemish", whose source is in what they portray as an UNSEEN FIELD that is outside man's organic range of vision, modern physicists have in fact proven the wisdom of mystics who have perpetually portrayed the physical matter as an illusion, and the person we are in this world as a projection into this realm by a Higher True-Self of greater consciousness and being that exists beyond our physical perceptive-vision and comprehension -- and this Higher-Self that is a Being of greater consciousness and knowing is the True-Self portrayed in the adage to Know Thyself.   Not the physical self that can be portrayed by modern science as the "blemish-self" -- but rather, that All-Knowing Higher Self that exists in the UNSEEN FIELD that is projecting us into this realm of limited consciousness.  And it is this Higher-Self that Giordano Bruno stated has the ability to teach and convey to all mankind the Truth and Knowledge of all things.  In the same way that modern physicists have proven that physical matter is a "blemish" or shadow-image whose Source is projected from an UNSEEN FIELD, Bruno explained that within the depths of man's consciousness is his True-Self that is not manifest in this physical world.  And thus, to Know Thyself, one had to Know the Source of Self that is beyond the expression of the Self in physical matter. 

In his writings Giordano Bruno often made reference to this higher self that is our true self.   Quoting from the article Genuine Religion vs Counterfeit Shadow Religion Bruno writes that: "The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body" (see 30 Quotes On Reincarnation).   He is therefore agreeing with the modern physicist who states that the True-Self is not the body or "blemish-self", and Bruno goes on to state that our True-Sel fhas lived in many different bodies throughout what the mystic has portrayed as the Journey of the Soul over the course of many physical lifetimes.  Which raises the question: How can a Christian believe in the pre-existent soul that has lived many lives -- a teaching that has often been portrayed as the reincarnation of the soul?  But when it is realized that Jesus taught a form of reincarnation (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ) -- and this original teaching was removed from the teachings of the Church by a series of Roman Emperors (see The Religion Of Roman Emperors http://ChristianReincarnation.org#emperors ) -- and that one of the most important teachings pertaining to entering the Inner Kingdom was removed from the Gospels (see Turn About And Become As a Child http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout ) -- then both fossilized medieval-science and dogmatic man-made blind-faith religion must be seen as a the detriment to man's progress that it truly is -- i.e., a mental and spiritual anchor that keeps mankind in a stae of perpetual ignorance.     

Giordano Bruno's direct knowledge of the soul of man is further presented in the words: "The divine perfection of the individual soul is the aim of all progression" (Giordano Bruno quoted in Reincarnation: The Phoenix Fire Mystery; Cranston/Head, editors).    Thus, on the higher reality of the soul Bruno wrote: "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge."   Bruno's portrayal of the Soul's ability to "...lend us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge", is making reference to the person who develops the ability to make the inward journey to their inner Source of Being that the modern physicist portrays as existing in the UNSEEN FIELD.   When the physicist states that physical matter is a "blemish" that is projected from an UNSEEN FIELD, the question is provoked as to how the physical-person can make the inner journey to their Source of Being in the Unseen Self-Field?   And it is this inner journey to our Source or True-Self that is historically portrayed by the mystics in the image at the right.  And with respect to this inner journey to our Source of Being, author and visionary Philip K. Dick stated in The Ten Principles Of The Gnostic Revelation where he portrays the realty of the person you are in this world with your higher soul-self where he wrote: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor" -- which confirms the statements of Giordano Bruno.   Which should raise the question: What does each person have to do to make this inward journey to their True-Self?  An even more important statement by Philip K. Dick with respect to this inner journey is presented in his words: "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here.  He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)." 

Like my own recall of my Soul's previous life as Jacob who they call James, the Brother of Yeshua who they call Jesus (see http://BrotherOfJesus.org ), Philip K. Dick possessed degrees of past life Soul-Memory.   Quoting Philip Dick's account:  "When a delivery person from the pharmacy brought his pain medication, he noticed the ichthys necklace she wore and asked her what it meant. She responded that it was a symbol used by the early Christians, and in that moment Dick's religious experiences began:  Thus, the image of the early Christian symbol acted as a catalyst that initiated recall of his Soul's previous life as a first century Christian of which he wrote:

"In that instant, as I stared at the gleaming fish sign and heard her words, I suddenly experienced what I later learned is called anamnesis—a Greek word meaning, literally, "loss of forgetfulness." I remembered who I was and where I was. In an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, it all came back to me. And not only could I remember it but I could see it. The girl was a secret Christian and so was I. We lived in fear of detection by the Romans. We had to communicate with cryptic signs. She had just told me all this, and it was true.  For a short time, as hard as this is to believe or explain, I saw fading into view the black, prison like contours of hateful Rome. But, of much more importance, I remembered Jesus, who had just recently been with us, and had gone temporarily away, and would very soon return. My emotion was one of joy. We were secretly preparing to welcome Him back. It would not be long. And the Romans did not know. They thought He was dead, forever dead. That was our great secret, our joyous knowledge. Despite all appearances, Christ was going to return, and our delight and anticipation were boundless."

What is being asserted is that while many mystical paths have enabled the person to employ the process of anamnesis-knowledge to gaze into their True-Self in their Unseen Source of Being, the historical man Jesus "...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive".   And it was this body of esoteric teachings that could only be given to the spiritually mature Christian which was the true dividing line between the immature carnal believer and those who possessed this essential knowledge and were portrayed as Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians.  This body of Sacred Knowledge that could only be imparted to the spiritually mature followers  of Jesus was made reference to in the Epistle of Peter to James where it is profoundly stated that if these higher teachings and knowledge were to become lost and thrown away, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".  And this has been proven to be true when the folly of fossilized science and blind-faith religion has alienated the people from being able to make the inner journey to ttheir Source of their Being -- thereby forcing mankind to dwell in a state of medieval intellectual poverty for thousands of years.

With respect to man's inner unknown True-Self, Giordano Bruno further stated: "This principle in man moves and governs the body, is superior to the body, and cannot be constrained by it."  It is Spirit, the Real Self, "in which, from which and through which are formed the different bodies, which have to pass through different kinds of existences, names and destinies."   Giordano Bruno taught that the Law of Reincarnation is indissolubly connected with its twin doctrine of Karma, or "High Justice" -- stating that "Every act performed brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life. In proportion as the soul has conducted itself in a body, it determines for itself its transition into another body."   In his Spaccio de la Bestia Trionfante (The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast) which was published in 1584, Bruno described the condition of a soul who had misused its opportunities on earth, saying that such a soul would be "relegated back to another body, and should not expect to be entrusted with the government and administration of a better dwelling if it had conducted itself badly in the conduct of a previous one."   Thus explaining that there are certain individuals whose "soul-flame" has burned more brightly with each succeeding incarnation, leading them by gradual stages to perfection. "These speak and act not as mere instruments of the divine, but rather as self-creative artists and heroes. The former have the divine spirit; the latter are divine spirits."   With respect to the existence and reality of the Inner Teacher that exists within the self of every person, Bruno wrote that: "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it" (quoted in Life and Teachings of Giordano Bruno : Philosopher, Martyr, Mystic 1548 - 1600 (1913) by Coulson Turnbull). 

It is impossible for man to enter a more enlightened age as long has he continues to cling to medieval fossilized science and blind-faith man-made religious doctrines that alienate him from the knowledge of his True-Self-- i.e., quoting 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". 

 

What has thrown the proverbial monkey-wrench into the traditional field of scientific theory, is the reality that what is seen with the three-dimensional senses is not only a fraction of the whole -- i.e., the proverbial tip of the iceberg -- but can rightly be portrayed as a shadow-image cast by an unseen higher source.   And regardless of the emerging facts, this is a reality of life that the linear-fundamentalist mindset cannot come to terms with.    In the same way that the Linear-Fundamentalist inhibits the very purpose of the scriptures by demanding that only what is written in the literal text is valid, the Linear-Fundamentalism that has taken control of scientific inquiry, has inhibited man's search for higher truth.  Where wise men of the past understood that in the same way that mankind was more than their physical bodies, so too was all of Creation.  Prior to the Linear-Fundamentalist taking control and sole-possession of the reins of inquiry -- suppressing the Feminine-Intuitive Spheres of Mind that has the innate ability to perceive beyond the physical appearances of matter which the emerging body of modern physicists now portray as a "blemish" within the UNSEEN-FIELD SOURCE (see above, The Findings Of The Physicist) -- wise visionaries understood that while the Male-Linear spheres of mind looked outwardly at the material objects of this world, it was the Feminine-Intuitive spheres of mind that possessed the ability to look inwardly -- beyond the shadow-images of the physical.  When the modern physicist recognized that the presence of matter as a "blemish"  represented the shadow-images of this world, it was the Feminine-Intuitive spheres of mind that possessed the unique ability to perceive the Source of the projected images in the UNSEEN-FIELD (see Linear Vs Intuitive Development Of Mind http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#LinearVsIntuitive ).  Thus, the problem is seen in the fact that when the atheist-minded Linear-Fundamentalist took control of setting the standards of scientific investigation to "blemish-only" inquiry, academia in like manner suppressed the Feminine-Intuitive and its development. 

Einstein made one of the most important observations that modern male linear-driven intellectuals neither understand, nor can they in any manner even begin to come to terms with when he stated "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."   Thus, the question? If Einstein is correct, then how does one set about developing the intuitive mind?  The wise visionaries of man's past understood that the Male-Linear without the Feminine-Intuitive was blind and earth-bound in its flat-lined perception of man's true reality.  And only when the Male-Linear and the Feminine-Intuitive were intricately functioning as ONE, could maturity of Mind be evolved.   Why?  Because only the Feminine-Intuitive possessed the innate ability to perceive the Source of the images that were seen by the Male-Linear in the outside world.   And therefore, the wise visionaries of the past understood (1) the necessity of developing the Feminine-Intuitive; and (2), the Feminine-Intuitive could not be developed in the same way and environment as the Male-Linear Spheres of Mind.         

Unlike the mentally and spiritually flat-lined modern intellectual who rejects the development of the Feminine-Intuitive insights, the wise visionaries of mankind's past understood that Mythology and the allegorical accounts of scriptures and many religious teachings was the means by which the Feminine-Intuitive spheres of mind were developed.   @@@

 

As science has itself begun to advance, it has now entered a phase where it must begin to cast off its own brand of Fundamentalism that has shackled and inhibited man's God-Given Gift of Reason.   And this inability to even contemplate the new paradigm of modern science was noted by 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”.

As an example of the Science Delusion, I utilize the positions of Rupert Sheldrake in the subheading Gender Blindness  I use his quotations, because he is one of the few scientists who has based his finding on man's Higher Reality that I have myself confirmed in my own work as a Mystic. The fact that the physicist has now proven that the Mind and Reality of Mankind exists in the UNSEEN (Spiritual) REALITY (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life  ), means that the modern material faux-science is harming more people than does faux-religion.  And while the facts are there to demonstrate the hoax of both faux-science and faux-religion, the vast majority of people are incapable of thinking outside of the limitations imposed upon them by these counterfeit-authorities.

In the Youtube talk, The Science Delusion by Sheldrake , Rupert Sheldrake presents the long ignored self-imposed limitations that science has shackled themselves with by only looking to the physical or material for their answers (see The Science Delusion ).  And he is correct in his assertion that our modern science is a basic hoax, because it has imposed material limitations on its research and findings.  What that of course means is that most scientists -- being of a total Linear mind-set -- will only look to the physical for their facts and findings. In using the example of this fatal flaw in the link Gender Blindness : If you were to put a measurement of effectualness on the male/female relationship in a marriage, this assessment can only be seen in what Sheldrake portrays as the "morphic-field" -- which of course is non-physical.  You can't examine either the physical body of the man or woman to detect the condition of the marriage-union -- because the fruit of the union exists in the Ćtheric Field that the two create as the substance of their marriage-union.  And this morphic-field becomes as an atmosphere that embodies the concept of the man and woman becoming "one flesh".  Which means that because the modern scientist looks only at the physical (or material) -- totally ignoring the spiritual-etheric -- they remain totally ineffective at even detecting or understanding the reality of a spurious vs a genuine marriage.

The person I am in this world, is not in the physical body -- but rather, is in the Ćtheric-Field that surrounds the body.  Going still one step further, The True Being that I am is Spiritual, and is my Higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ).  But modern science remains shackled and blind to the Higher Realities of Life, because they refuse to look and seek beyond the physical-material.  And using the above example of marriage as just one reality that they remain totally blind to, is true of all their scientific findings.  Yet, we have a very large segment of our population -- many of whom portray themselves as Deists who claim to understand the Natural Laws of Creation (see The Laws Of Creation ) -- who attempt to base their whole foundation of their Reasoning upon the faux-findings of modern material-science.  In the same way that it is virtually impossible to even begin to understand the purpose and meaning of a marriage between a man and a woman without understanding the morphic-field that their union creates (see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life ), the self-imposed limitations of modern science has rendered their findings and assertions harmful to the person seeking the answers to life's questions.  And in many respects, modern science is even more harmful than faux-religion.

 

 

 

The true purpose of religion is to convey to what can be personified as the lost prodigal son how to return to his/her Source in the Edenic Kingdom.  And at their Source, all religions have this goal as the purpose and objective of the religion.  The problem is that all religions become corrupted within a very short period following the physical death of their spiritual author -- and are then taken over by men who corrupt the religion in order to use the teachings for their own rule and political advancement.  In the subheading A Purely Spiritual Kingdom, I explore the fact that the original disciples of Jesus taught that belief in the historical man Jesus was not necessary.  And this is why it is stated: “My teaching is not My own, Jesus replied. It comes from Him who sent Me. 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). 

That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because of his success in overcoming and fulfilling the Laws within himself, 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 this body of original core followers and disciple believed that when anyone "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).  

What Jesus taught and revealed to his disciples with regard to who he was, is exactly what was stated by Peter after he was himself totally enlightened by the Holy Spirit: “Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know” (Acts 2:22 NIV).   Where did Peter get the notion that Jesus was a man -- a man "accredited by God" -- a man that God performed miracles, wonders and signs  "...which God did among you through him"?   Didn’t Jesus himself say that “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself...” (John 5:19 NAS);   “The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works” (John 14:10 NKJ); “I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me” (John 5:30 NKJ); “...I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him” (John 8:28-29 NIV); “for the works which the Father has given Me to finish -- the very works that I do -- bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me” (John 5:36 NKJ); “I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You” (John 17:6-7 NKJ).  

The important spiritual truth that is demonstrated in the above is that EVERY PRODIGAL SON AND DAUGHTER has the capacity to become Anointed and arise to perfection as their elder brother Jesus did.   And this is further confirmed in the quotation of the Apostle Peter by his disciple Clement in the Homilies where it is written: “For even the Hebrews who believe Moses, and do not observe the things spoken by him, are not saved, unless they observe the things that were spoken to them. For their believing Moses was not of their own will, but of God, who said to Moses, Behold, I come to thee in a pillar of cloud, that the people may hear me speaking to thee, and may believe thee for ever. Since, therefore, both to the Hebrews and to those who are called from the Gentiles, believing in the teachers of truth is of God, while excellent actions are left to every one to do by his own judgment, the reward is righteously bestowed upon those who do well. 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. Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords”.

In absolute opposition to the dogma of Pagan Rome and the teachings of the Iranian prophet Mani which both Manichean and Mithraic Dualism served as the Foundation of the Doctrine of Original Sin that was championed by St. Augustine, Peter proclaims that "...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. Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords”.  Why did Peter state that  "...if of themselves they would have understood what is reasonable" -- which was to totally keep the Commandments and fulfill the Law within themselves and "...they are able to become Christs".  And in total opposition to the prayer of the modern Christian beseeching the man Jesus to be their savior -- on faith alone with no requirement of actions -- Peter states: "...Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords”.   Thus, the instant salvation that modern Christians have been seduced into believing they have, has no foundation in fact.   That man has the capacity to arise from the carnal elements of this realm -- keep and live in accord with the Royal Law and Commandments of God -- is why Paul warns the Christians that if they knowingly sin after coming to the Gospel teachings, that they will be totally rejected as apostates to the Kingdom: "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).  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). 

That the later Church of Rome which existed as a puppet under the pagan sun worshipping Emperor Constantine, censored and changed the very words of God spoken to mankind, is the primary reason why the Christian world remains shackled to the abyss of spiritual ignorance to this very day.    In the below article it will be demonstrated that all the pre-Nicene Christian authors who quoted the baptism sequence in their writings, confirmed that prior to the fourth century editing of the scriptures by the Church of Rome, that the Gospels confirmed that Jesus was a holy man who became the Lord's Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling and overcoming the Laws.  Or, as stated by Dead Sea Scroll expert Edmund Wilson “Jesus... had been trained in the discipline and imbued with the thought of a certain Jewish sect [the very mystical and Gnostic Essenes], and that he had learned from it the role that he afterwards lived...”.   And it was Jesus' fulfilling the Royal Law within himself that God acknowledged to mankind when he said at Jesus' baptism in the Jordan:  "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".   Moreover, in addition to the six (6) pre-Nicene Christian authors who are cited in The Ten Words, this fact is further confirmed in the more ancient surviving biblical texts that modern translators continue to ignore to the spiritual pearl of the Christian world today.     That the modern Church continues to reject the very words of God spoken to mankind, in favor of the censored and corrupted words of the fourth century Emperor of Pagan Rome, is the reason why the modern Church which has caused itself to be spiritually flat-lined, only possesses what Paul portrayed as the "elementary" doctrines that the Church Father Origen defined as being “...preached in the Churches …for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”  (see Origen, Contra Celsum).  These 10 words demonstrate conclusively that the text of the New Testament has been altered in order to make it support the doctrines of the Pagan Roman/Greek world.   These 10 words further demonstrate that the essence of the teachings of Yeshua/Jesus has little in common with the Christian religion today.   In fact, these 10 words are to Christianity, what the 10 Commandments were to Judaism -- i.e., the foundation from which every other aspect of the religion springs forth!  When Jesus taught that believers must pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, this required a total change in the person's thinking, mindset and lifestyle. 

What this means is that ANYONE who embraces the Original Gospel teachings in word, thought, desire and deed, will be taught the Truth directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God that the Original Disciples of Jesus called the One Teacher and True Prophet (see The True Prophet ).  As the Soul who lived as the Brother of the historical man Yeshua/Jesus, what I have written herein is not my own -- but has been drawn from the Original Teachings that were corrupted and suppressed by the Church of Pagan Rome.  As I am merely a messenger and guide who has been sent on a mission to restore the Original Teachings of TheWay, the spiritual Truths that I write about are not my own.  And what I write is based upon the same guarantee that my Brother Jesus stated when he revealed these same Universal Truths of our Heavenly Father to all of mankind -- i.e., that as the prodigal sons and daughters, any person who sincerely seeks the Truth -- who is willing to live the level of Truth that has been revealed to them -- and desires to do the Will of God -- will be taught the Truth directly from the Indwelling True Prophet.  Thus, in the words of the Apostle Peter as preserved in the Homilies of his disciple Clement that Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth" (see The True Prophet) -- fulfilling the objective "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ).  And who is it that true believers and disciples will come to?  The One Teacher who is portrayed as  The True Prophet.  I was sent therefore as a messenger to restore the Original Gospel Teachings, and to make TheCall to the Wedding Feast (see The Call).   And if you are a sincere and true believer, then you will properly prepare yourself by putting on the required "wedding garment" -- living the necessary Consecrated Life that transforms your body and mind into the Final Living Temple (see Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple) -- and as the High Priest of your Consecrated Temple, you will be able to use the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge to enter in the Holy of Holies and dwell in the Presence of the Lord in the Kingdom.   Thus, fulfilling the Commandment: "Enter in at the narrow strait gate" (Matt 7:13-14) -- in fulfillment of the Promise: "He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more" (Rev 3:12) --  "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17) -- and having overcome, enabling the person to enter within the reality of the Inner Kingdom -- i.e., "Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city" (Rev 22:14 KJV).   The message of TheCall has been set before you -- the promise of being nourished by the Divine Manna has been made to you -- and only you as the prodigal son or daughter can make the commitment to come and be restored to the Edenic Kingdom that you abandoned when you journeyed into this, the Far Country (see The Outer Darkness of Mind and Being).   With the Original Gospel teachings restored, it can again be said: "If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin" (John 15:22). 

 

 

 

Unless you understand the Human Condition, you can never escape what in many ways can be portrayed as the shackles of this world.  In the above article it is demonstrated that this world is a shadow-image of a higher unknown spiritual reality that remains beyond the vision and understanding of our physical senses (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ).  Yet, mystics such as Pythagoras, Plato, Jesus and Giordano Bruno have all developed the ability to gaze into -- and even enter -- the UNSEEN Higher Spiritual Reality (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ).   Why can't each of us gain access to the unseen Spiritual Source of both our True-Self and the images we see?  When rightly understood, in the same way that a developing fetus cannot see what exists outside of its mother's womb, neither can we see beyond the borders of this world that can be portrayed as a Mental Womb (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#MentalWomb ).   In the same way that a fetus is not sufficiently advanced and prepared to perceptively interact in the world outside of the environment of the womb that is developing the embryo into an infant, neither is organic man in his embryonic condition of mind, prepared to mentally interact with his own higher Soul-Reality. 

There is one version or aspect of the analogy of Plato's Cave where  a group of prisoners succeed in escaping this realm -- i.e., (quoting Wikipedia): "If, however, we were to miraculously escape our bondage, we would find a world that we could not understand—the sun is incomprehensible for someone who has never seen it. In other words, we would encounter another 'realm', a place incomprehensible because, theoretically, it is the source of a higher reality than the one we have always known; it is the realm of pure Form, pure fact".   And unless we are prepared to evolve our mind beyond its present embryonic limitations, we will remain a prisoner in a world of shadow-images and self-ignorance -- unable to deal with "...the realm of pure Form, pure fact".  

In a mental womb we develop by living out our choices and exercise of freewill.  And herein lies the problem as seen in the fact that because we don't understand the rules to the game of life, it remains impossible to mentally advance as achieve the next stage of birth that would enable us to exist outside the present mental-womb (see Stages Of Birth http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#StagesOfBirth ).  And in not knowing the rules to the life that we are presently living, it remains virtually impossible to developmentally evolve out of our embryonic condition of mind and human consciousness.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

The mind of man progresses and evolves one level at a time.  These levels are portrayed in the proverbial Jacob's Ladder as presented in the Gospel of the Nazirenes in the words: "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."   Which means that to climb the ladder, we must no only pull ourselves up, but we must let go of the previous level we were on -- i.e., "...the truth which seems today, you will abandon for the higher truth tomorrow"

It has remained virtually impossible for organic man to comprehend his own higher Soul-Reality, because organic man cannot even begin to envision his reality across the spectrum of Time -- which is often called the Fourth-Dimension by scientist and mystic alike.  We have often heard the terms ego-self, earthly-self, lower-self, and even false-self -- all of which portrays the person we are in this world in relation to our True-Self.  And from the perspective of this higher Soul-Reality that is incomprehensible from the perspective of organic man, virtually everything we have come to believe about life -- i.e., beliefs and concepts of higher reality drawn from religion -- drawn from science -- drawn from our culture -- drawn from history or archeology -- drawn from philosophy -- drawn from the various scriptures or holy writings that exist -- are in most instances gravely misleading, because we can't comprehend that what we call Time as a dimension of Soul-Mind.  And without the understanding of Time, it will remain impossible for us to understand the life that we are presently living.  Organic man can't comprehend the reality of Time, because he lacks self=knowledge -- and especially the knowledge of his Soul and True-Self.   

Fortunately for modern man, the emerging body of science has begun to make some very important advances that are generally ignored and not understood by the adherents of scientism (see Science vs Scientism @ http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#ScienceVsScientism .  In the same way that the clergy and pseudo-prophets of religion are incapable of comprehending the Spiritual Essence of their own religion, the high priests of scientism are incapable of comprehending the wisdom of the emerging body of genuine science.   Why?  Because unless you comprehend what can be portrayed as the Cosmology of the Soul -- which includes your own relationship to your Higher Soul-Self -- and how the past influences and creates the present, and in turn orchestrates the future -- it will remain impossible to comprehend man's higher Soul-Reality that bridges the expanse of the countless lives your Soul has lived from the Alpha to the Omega of Time-Reality.  

The enigmatic reality of Time is portrayed in the words of the modern scientists in the statement: “The meaning of time has become terribly problematic in contemporary physics,” says Simon Saunders, a philosopher of physics at the University of Oxford.  Further stating that “The situation is so uncomfortable that by far the best thing to do is declare oneself an agnostic” (see Time May Not Exist).  Going one step further is the profound statement that: “One finds that time just disappears from the Wheeler-DeWitt equation,” says Carlo Rovelli, a physicist at the University of the Mediterranean in Marseille, France. “It is an issue that many theorists have puzzled about. It may be that the best way to think about quantum reality is to give up the notion of time—that the fundamental description of the universe must be timeless.”  Quoting an equally important statement in the above article: "The possibility that time may not exist is known among physicists as the 'problem of time.' It may be the biggest, but it is far from the only temporal conundrum. Vying for second place is this strange fact: The laws of physics don’t explain why time always points to the future. All the laws—whether Newton’s, Einstein’s, or the quirky quantum rules—would work equally well if time ran backward. As far as we can tell, though, time is a one-way process; it never reverses, even though no laws restrict it."

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

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

For those few who understand and have been able to move across the dimension of Time -- directly communicating with the personalities which one's Soul has previously lived -- these few understand that there is no such thing as reincarnation from an Eastern perspective.  And because Time is a dimension of mind, it would be more correct to say that the Soul evolves over the course of many unique incarnations.   In contradistinction to the Eastern "milk" concept of reincarnation, each incarnation of the Soul is a unique expression -- meaning that you don't recall your Soul's previous lives, because you never lived them -- and because Time is a dimension of Soul-Mind, each soul-generated personality continues to live and dwell within the higher reality of the Soul -- in what can be portrayed as the Soul Mind-Matrix. 

As the Soul advances and evolves, the soul-image personality that is projected into this realm is able to communicate with the Soul's other personalities across Time.  I have communicated directly not only with the previous personalities that my own Soul has lived, but also those of my wife.  Because the reality of Time as a dimension of mind remains inconceivable to the mind of three-dimensional man, all the religions (East and West) are in error.  But, it is not their fault of these religions, because unless the members of the respective religion are able to experience Soul-Time, it is truly difficult to near impossible to comprehend.

All realities of Life as we know it, are the direct expression of Natural Law.  When Einstein states that the "separation between the past, present and future is only an illusion", that is because what appears to be the past has generated -- and is the causal-factor of the events and realities that man experiences in the present, is manifest to bring about a future objective -- thus, connecting past and future in the present.  What this means is that the life you are presently living -- including your experiences and interactions with other people -- are all brought about and orchestrated by the Natural Laws that connect and control every aspect of Life to bring about a series of higher objectives. 

The Soul's of the enlightened Deists who came together in the 18th century to form the Constitutional bedrock of the U.S. government, became semi-enlightened because they understand the Natural Laws that connect past, present and future -- which Natural Laws the ignorance of, inhibit the understanding of the traditional religions.  And while I can use saying 84 of the Gospel of Thomas to explain the enigma of Time and the connection of the soul-generated images in each lifetime that the Soul experiences (see Saying 84 - The Foundation Of The Soul And The Threefold Self), I personally like the above statements by the physicists.  For the enlightened Deists of the past who were not shackled by traditional religious theology, it is essential to understand what is being personified by the above physicists, in order not to be flat-lined in one's own mental and spiritual development. And by being at least familiar with the concepts set forth by the above physicists, the Deist can then more easily move beyond the organic barriers of the organic mind that limits natural man's understanding.

In my experience, the issue of Time and the reality that is a dimension of Mind that can be moved in -- and is simultaneously going on with the dynamics of both the Soul and the Mind of God (Logos), is extremely difficult for the three-dimensional mind of man to come to terms with -- even when it is explored and explained to them.  And this is why the scientists are themselves perplexed at their own finding (quoting): “The meaning of time has become terribly problematic in contemporary physics,” says Simon Saunders, a philosopher of physics at the University of Oxford. “The situation is so uncomfortable that by far the best thing to do is declare oneself an agnostic” (see Time May Not Exist).  Going one step further is the profound statement that: “One finds that time just disappears from the Wheeler-DeWitt equation,” says Carlo Rovelli, a physicist at the University of the Mediterranean in Marseille, France.  “It is an issue that many theorists have puzzled about. It may be that the best way to think about quantum reality is to give up the notion of time—that the fundamental description of the universe must be timeless.”  Quoting an equally important statement in the above noted article: The possibility that time may not exist is known among physicists as the “problem of time.” It may be the biggest, but it is far from the only temporal conundrum. Vying for second place is this strange fact: The laws of physics don’t explain why time always points to the future. All the laws—whether Newton’s, Einstein’s, or the quirky quantum rules—would work equally well if time ran backward. As far as we can tell, though, time is a one-way process; it never reverses, even though no laws restrict it.

It is my position that unless you have successfully moved in Time -- and entered what I portray as the Soul Mind-Matrix where all the personalities (incarnations) of the Soul continue to exist across the dimension of Time -- then the enigma of Time becomes virtually impossible for organic man to comprehend.

Our physical birth is the first of a sequence of births that must be brought about to achieve Total-Wholeness and Union with the Mind of God (Logos/Son of God).  Our physical birth provides us the necessary vehicle in the form of an embodiment of mind as seen in our physical bodies, in order to bring about the next stage of Mental-Birth.   Therefore, human consciousness must be understood as being embryonic, because it is associated with the limitations of the untransformed body -- which being divided across the polarity opposite dimensions of gender (male/female) -- further divided across the spectrum of the races -- is driven by our lower animal nature and is therefore capable of only the most basic of thought that is often portrayed as carnal, and is consumed with sex and the fulfillment of bodily appetites.   That organic gender-divided man is only capable of the most elementary of thought and thinking, and is ruled over by our lower animal nature, is why Paul stated that he could not convey to the faith-based Christians anything more than what he portrayed as the "milk" of the Gospel -- i.e.,  @@@    

 

If the two opposite and divided polarities were somehow connected directly together, what we would have is a destructive short circuit.  This can be likened to the fact that if the positive and negative polarities of electricity that enter into our homes were to come into direct contact with each other, the result would be a destructive discharge of energy or even a fire.  In the same way that we insert an appliance across the two polarities in the case of the electricity that powers our homes -- and the two polarities connect in the appliance -- it is the mind that is the third-force balance between the two opposite positive (male) and negative (female) polarities.  The same is true of man and woman with respect to the mind being empowered by the vital life-force or bio-energy that flows from the Higher Mind of the Soul through the Spiritual Centers and into the mind -- thereby providing the person with the consciousness of their earthly personality.    

In the graphic image at the right, we see the Etheric Field of Mind that is associated with a man and woman -- the color differentiating between the polarity of the powers that separate and render specific strengths and weaknesses of the physical body-mind between the sexes.  The male being charged positive in the genitals to the female negative polarity -- and the potential of the female to be charged positive at the breasts and upper areas of mind to the male.  This interaction of opposite polarities of bio-energy is also demonstrated in the picture at the left.  And while the female with her "XX" Chromosomes is not by nature polarized positive, she is able to receive the positive generative power from the male at the genitals, raise it up to a higher vibration of mind, and return it back to him in a transformed manner.     

In the twelve-dimensional Realm of Souls the two polarities are the Power that manifests the Light of the Soul (see Being of Light @ http://BeingOfLight.com ).  But because our twelve-dimensional Soul or True-Self cannot directly manifest in this three-dimensional realm, the choice must be made between being born either a male or female.  While the male, being born "XY" chromosomes, exists genetically as a male and female, his female "X" chromosome is generally undeveloped and atrophied because of the dominant "Y" positive/male polarity as explored in the Tree of Life article at (@@@).  And it is this suppression of a man's negative/feminine opposite polarity, that inhibits his mental development beyond the vary basic of human-indigenous levels of comprehension.  In the allegorical Genesis account, woman is portrayed as man's moste immediate savior when the meaning of the words "help-meet" is understood (see @@@).   Why?  As further explored in the foregoing article, therefore woman whose chromosomal makeup is "XX", has the unique ability as a Wife, to be a surrogate for the male's dormant "X" chromosome.   And in this respect, woman's consciousness rides upon the differences between the "X" derived from the father (male), and the "X" derived from the mother.   And where it can be said that one's weakness is also one's strength, because the "X" from the father does not carry the same power as the "Y" chromosome in the male -- therefore, can be portrayed as a surrogate-male -- this "X" father-derived chromosome does not have the strength to subvert and suppress the actual "X" chromosome derived from the woman's mother.  Therefore the father derived "X" chromosome while permitting consciousness of the women, permits the mother derived "X" chromosome to be dominant -- thereby enabling woman to be far more Intuitive than her Linear-dominated male counterpart. 

As further explained in the article on the Tree of Life ( http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ), the divided male and female minds is allegorically portrayed as the fruit that brings death from the Tree of Duality (a.k.a. Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil).   With the division of the seven spiritual centers and their associated twelve spheres of mind, the divided male or female mental-impressions cannot join and be transformed into the fruit of the Tree of Life.  With the Union of husband and wife,        

 

that physically manifest as man and 

And at this  What this means is the Higher  Soul-Mind of our True-Self, is divided across the spectrum of male or female as personified in the image on the right.  The seven spiritual centers which the Eastern Religions call chakras, are divided across the polarities of positive (male) and negative (female).   Our Soul or True-Self that is personified in the adage of the wise and Know Thyself, dwells in a twelve dimensional reality where the opposite polarities of male and female exist in harmony.  But when the Soul incarnates into this three-dimensional world, it must incarnate as either a male of female.   And while there are many variations within the two genders, all growth and development is through the interaction of opposites -- which would be impossible in the twelve-dimensional Realm of Souls.     

But -- other than my wife and a few of my children -- since there exist people who I have not yet met and spoken to about the reality of the dimension of Soul-Time, I guess I could be wrong -- and Souls other than the historical man Jesus and a few of his core disciples must understand it.  As I have stated, the modern findings of science confirm what was known to the mystic throughout the ages. Astrophysicist Robert Jastrow, who was the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies wrote in his book, God and the Astronomers, that “The scientist has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”

 

 

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

Which is why in the Gospel of the Nazirenes which preserves many of the important teachings which were removed from the canonical Gospels by the Church, organic "natural" man is portrayed as a beast who walks in the form of man: "Love you one another and all the creatures of God, Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man. Are they men or women in the image of God whose ways of violence, of oppression and wrong, who choose a lie rather than the truth? No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Israel, and being of Israel they are children of God..." (see Organic Man).    And in the same way that the first stage of birth provided you a physical body which was made up of the lower three earthly kingdoms, when you emerged out of your physical mother's womb, you entered the secondary womb of Mother-Earth in order to bring about the next stage of mental-birth as that of man in the fourth-kingdom -- i.e., "...Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man".  

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

The Source Of Soul-Light: If our True-Self is a Being of White Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) -- i.e., Manifest Intellect and Knowing -- in a holographic reality, God is also White-Light, and All-Knowing -- which means that as expressions of both God and our Higher Soul-Self, we are also white light.  Which provokes the question: If this is true, then why don't we appear as a being of white light?  The answer is very simple: We can only perceive with our physical senses, that part of us that is of the earth's vibration -- i.e., our physical eyes are comprised of earth-matter, and can only perceive that vibration which is of the earth.   From the perspective of the modern physicist, that part of us that we see is very much the "blemish" within the greater 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.”   Which, is portrayed in the words of cyberneticist David Foster who described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The holographic reality says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space. The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”

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

From the perspective of the pattern of mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life, so long as a person is looking out with undeveloped senses, through the divided eyes of male or female, they will remain blind to man's higher Soul-Reality.  If the Divine Pattern of Creation is Mother/Father God, and the Third-Force of Logos or Son of God that is representative of the Mind of God, then unless we can overcome our own division of male and female, we will remain blind to our own higher Soul-Reality.   In like manner, our Soul-Self ( SoulSelf.org ) that was created in the image of God, is a Being of White Light -- wherein, the division of male/female at that level of our Being is in Oneness.   Quoting The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of Souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel. It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief. According to these teachings, all human Souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual Souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower Souls into confusion; as a result, every Soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The Soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.    The Soul has no sex, because our True-Self -- i.e., our Soul-Self -- is not divided across the spectrum of male and female -- and is therefore the very embodied manifestation of Intellect and Light.  Thus, the pre-existent Soul of man which are portrayed as "..sparks of which form the individual Souls..." are in fact the Beings of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) encountered by some in a Near Death Experience -- and it is this Being of Light that is asexual and without a physical body as we perceive in this world, that is each person's true form and self.   But what this also means is that so long as we are looking out at the world through the eyes of a man or woman -- or thinking and perceiving reality from the perspective of a man or woman -- that we will remain incapable of perceiving and comprehending our own higher Soul-Reality.  

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

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

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

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

Throughout the above I confirm the teachings of Jewish Mysticism and the Zohar where it is written: "...According to these teachings, all human Souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual Souls...".  And when it is recognized that the original spark of the Divine that formed the Soul was White Light -- and that the seven colors of the rainbow in harmony and oneness create the White Light -- then the evolution of the sparks in the formation of an Evolved and Great Light that forms the Being of Light, is dependent upon the evolution of each of those rays of color-vibration that comprise the White Light of the Soul.   Which means that while there must be maintained a degree of separation for each of the seven kingdoms/colors to be expressed and interact -- while on another level a deeper connection must be maintained that brings about an interaction across the spectrum of the seven kingdoms/colors.   This separation on one level, and connection on a deeper level, is not only true and maintained in the outer world, but also within each of us.  Further, that in their separation, each of the seven kingdoms/colors are imbued with a level of consciousness appropriate for that level of mind -- and yet, only on the higher connected level of Mind that is beyond the perceptive-vision of man's untransformed earthly senses, are they perceived to be aspects of the Whole -- can man's Higher Soul-Reality be Manifest where the Seven are brought into a state of Oneness.  

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

When the question is posed to Jesus as to how the Kingdom is entered in that version of Gospel of Thomas saying 22 -- i.e., "If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."  The key term here is the word CENTER -- meaning that the left and right male/female columns of the mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life -- along with the three upper heavenly kingdoms that must be merged with their lower natures in the three earthly kingdoms and brought into the CENTER -- which Center is the Kingdom of Man -- a condition portrayed in the phrase Son Of Man -- which equates to our becoming a Child of the Kingdom (see Children).   And it is this reality that is expressed in the statement: "And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, and said, Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" (Mat 18: 2-3).   And it is this condition where the Whole of Self is in harmony and balanced in the CENTER, that portrays the one who has "turned about and become as a child" -- i.e., a child of the Kingdom in the manner that each of us was when as the prodigal son/daughter, we abandoned the Kingdom of the Father and traveled into this, the Far Country.    And it is this "turned about" Condition which achieves Wholeness, that is presented in the question of the above teaching that has been preserved in the Gospel of Thomas: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."  When you can accomplish this, you will not only become Whole, but you will manifest the White Light of your Higher Soul-Self.  It might also be pointed out that the Center Sphere of the Tree of Life is the Love Sphere -- and this Sphere of Divine Love can only be active when the other 11 spheres exist in a condition of Wholeness. 

Each of the three lower earthly kingdoms -- and the kingdom of man -- are interacting and evolving separately in the outer world.  But the most important interaction is taking place within us where the lower three kingdoms are directly interacting with the fourth kingdom of human consciousness as manifest in the kingdom of man.   In the case of most people, because of their immature and undeveloped condition, they are being ruled over by their lower animal nature (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   When one begins to understand the Cosmology of Mind and Being -- and they understand that the lower three earthly kingdoms are a reflection of the upper three heavenly kingdoms -- and such a person is able to bring the upper and lower together in the Center -- fulfilling the teaching: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."   Only then can Wholeness be achieved through the next stage of birth that transforms the self into a "child of the Kingdom" -- i.e., "...unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven" .   The images we perceive in the outer world, are aspects of mind impressed into the forms of nature -- interacting with each other in the process of mental and spiritual evolution.    

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

 

The Universe is a Great Mind: In his 1951 textbook on quantum theory, Bohm offered some interesting speculations on the analogies between quantum processes and thought processes, thus carrying further the celebrated statement made by the astronomer James Jeans two decades earlier: “Today there is a wide measure of agreement… that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”.  And the statement by astronomer Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.  Max Planck who is considered the founder of quantum theory stated: "As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about atoms this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."    More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The holographic reality says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space. The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When the biblical authors stated that man's higher Soul-Reality was beyond his comprehension (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ), a really big obstacle to his comprehension is in his inability to understand his own lower animal nature.  We enter this life to achieve Wholeness across the spectrum of the seven kingdoms that provide us the bio-energy or vital life-force upon which our consciousness is manifest.  Being holographically created in the image of our Source of Being, we are allotted a vertical slice of our Higher Soul-Self, which is imbued with a vertical slice of the Divine Mind -- which means that our lower animal nature is an integral part of our mind and consciousness -- and the evolution and development of our lower animal nature is what is allegorically set forth in the Torah as Animal Sacrifice (see Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#AnimalTemple ).  If the Jews had not thrown away what Jesus called the Key of Knowledge by interpreting the scriptures outwardly -- instead of turning the scriptures within their own mind and being -- the Jews would have understood that it was their own lower animal nature that was being allegorical set forth as in need of transformation (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature ).   And it was this lower animal nature that Paul was making reference to when he proclaimed: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).

All Opposites are male/female in relation to each other  -- and the three kingdoms of your lower nature are the reflective (feminine) opposites of your higher (male) heavenly nature -- and the two must be joined in order to achieve Wholeness in the Center -- i.e., "...the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female".   How much you achieve in this life will be dependent upon how much of your lower nature you can merge and make ONE with your higher heavenly nature of the upper three kingdoms above the fourth kingdom of man.  And this esoteric reality is explored in the subheading The Gospel Enigma That Modern Christians Can't Comprehend http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org#GospelEnigma . Quoting from this link:
 

In the same way that genetically, the embryo that forms the body when an infant is born into this world is the merger and balance of 23 pairs of chromosomes from the mother and father, what is being presented in the words of the Gospel of Thomas -- i.e., "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female..." -- is the means by which the Feminine-Intuitive and Male-Linear opposite spheres of mind within the pattern of the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life must be brought into a state of Evolved Wholeness and Oneness, in order for the mind of the seeker to evolve beyond what Paul portrays as an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature), and for the Kingdom to come in the manner that was promised in the Gospel -- i.e., "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:17).  Which provokes the question: Overcomes what?  Overcome the division of the Tree of Duality of the person's own mind as explored in the article The Tree Of Life -- as personified in the statement: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7). Which spiritually transformative process is personified in the words of the Gospel of Thomas: "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom".


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

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

Many of the mainstream Reform and Conservative Jews were angered when Rabbi Ovadia Yosefan, the former chief rabbi of Israel -- a religious scholar who was also the spiritual leader of the Shas party -- made the statement that no innocent Jews died in the Holocaust.  What Rabbi Yosefan said was that the 6 million Holocaust victims "were reincarnations of the Souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things that should not be done.”   Rabbi Yosefan explained that these Souls who had previously lived lives of sin, “…had been reincarnated in order to atone.”   Immediately, all sectors of the population -- from then Prime Minister Barak, to the Holocaust survivors -- condemned the rabbi's remarks.   In a communiqué issued from his office, Barak stated: “His words are liable to harm the memory of those who perished in the Holocaust and are liable to hurt the feelings of their families and the feelings of the entire nation.”

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

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

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

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

 

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

Each person's ability to learn, advance, and comprehend man's higher reality, is all dependent upon the Condition of the lower three kingdoms of that Soul which the Soul-generated personality inherited when entering into a life.   Again quoting the Church Father Origen from the previous link on Original Sin: “For God the Creator makes a certain vessel unto honor, and other vessels to dishonor; but that vessel which has cleansed itself from all impurity [an untarnished wedding garment] He makes a vessel unto honor, while that which has stained itself with the filth of vice He makes a vessel unto dishonor. The conclusion from which, accordingly, is this, that the cause of each one's actions is a pre-existing one; and then every one, according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor. And if the assertion appear correct, as it certainly is, and in harmony with all piety, that it is due to previous causes that every vessel be prepared by God either to honor or to dishonor, it does not appear absurd that, in discussing remoter causes in the same order, and in the same method, we should come to the same conclusion respecting the nature of Souls, and (believe) that this was the reason why Jacob was beloved before he was born into this world, and Esau hated, while he still was contained in the womb of his mother”.  

When Origen makes reference to the reality that each person, "...according to his deserts, is made by God either a vessel unto honor or dishonor. Therefore every individual vessel has furnished to its Creator out of itself the causes and occasions of its being formed by Him to be either a vessel unto honor or one unto dishonor", what is being presented is the Laws of Creation that orchestrate each one of the lives a Soul lives based upon the accomplishments of that Soul (see The Laws That Control Our Lives http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsThatControlOurLives ).   And because the Laws of Creation are imbued with the power to evolve each and every Soul from the Alpha of Ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light -- presenting to each Soul a Labyrinth of choices that test and open the opportunity of advancement -- what the Church Father Origin portrays is a great Truth that is not at all understood in modern times.     

What Origen is stating is that when a Soul-generated personality enters this life and inherits a physical body that has been put through the process of refinement -- with the animal nature evolved, domesticated and made a faithful servant to that Soul's Higher Spiritual Nature -- that Soul-personality as a "vessel of honor", is able to make great gains based upon the opportunities and choices that Soul-generated personality makes.   When Paul speaks of organic "natural" man's inability to comprehend man's higher Soul-Reality because he is of an "animal-Soul" level of consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature), it is because the vertical slice of that Soul's lower (animal) nature which the Soul-generated personality inherited, was never refined and evolved -- a reality that Origen portrays as a "vessel of dishonor".   And this is why organic man in the Gospel of the Nazirenes is portrayed as beasts who walk in the form of man.   Further, this is why Paul wrote of the necessity to "…beat my body and make it my slave..." (1 Cor 9:27 NIV) -- and why Christians are commanded to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV) -- with the warning: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   When Gospel of Thomas saying 22 states the requirement to make the "below and the above" one and the same, it is because the lower three earthly Spiritual Centers serve as a (reflective) foundation for the upper three heavenly Spiritual Centers -- and all seven Centers must be in balanced-wholeness, in order to manifest the White Light that forms from the segments of the rainbow -- i.e., Genesis 9:13 reads: "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth"

When Jesus taught the multitudes of people in parables -- i.e., "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV) -- those people among the multitudes who had entered that life with a refined and evolved lower nature, were able to understand with greater clarity and comprehension the spiritual meaning of the parable.   While the multitudes only heard parabolic accounts, those more evolved Souls who entered life as a "vessel of honor", perceived and comprehended what the vast majority of the multitudes of people could not.  Which reality of carnal imposed deafness, blindness and barrier to higher understanding prompted the Wycliffe Bible Commentary to write that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”    With the far-reaching implications embodied in the reality that "...spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”.   And while this is true, what must be examined is the meaning of the term "initiate" as one who has evolved to the level where they can be portrayed as IN THE HOUSE -- where the multitudes are portrayed as being "without" (see In The House). 

What Jesus stated was of such a profound importance to comprehend if the seeker/disciple was to begin to understand the true meaning of the scriptures as set forth in the parable of the Sower and the Seed, that Jesus then warned: "And he saith unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how shall ye know all the parables?" (Mark 4:13 ASV).    And what this means is that if you fail to understand the meaning of the parable of the Sower and the Seed, and put its teachings into practice in your daily lives, that it will be impossible for you to understand any part of the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings.   And if you fail to understand the meaning of the term "In The House", and the difference in the reality of those who Jesus portrayed in the words: "...but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand" -- that you will dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- walking upon what Jesus portrayed as the "broad-way of self-destruction" (Matt 7:13-14).  To become what is conveyed in the parable of the Sower and the Seed as the "good ground", it is absolutely necessary to live in strict accord with the Gospel Teachings.  Which transformation of self into the "good ground" refines and evolves the lower nature within which the seed of the Soul has been planted at conception, and creates within self the necessary environment for the the Logos to In-Dwell -- i.e., "Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me" (John 14:23-24 NIV).    But this becomes impossible for those who believe in accord with the dogma and traditions of men, and live a lifestyle in accord with the ways of this world. 

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

Is the mind of an infant empty?  Or does the infant possess the innate ability to tap into a pre-existing source of knowledge within himself that exceeds all of the wisdom of this world that he could be taught in the traditional manner?   Modern academia, our culture and mainstream religions, all base their teachings upon the empty-mind philosophy -- which is in total opposition to the scriptures and the wisdom of the wise and enlightened ancients.   And when rightly understood, modern faith-based believers fail to understand the very foundation of the scriptures they promote, because they fail to understand even the nature and purpose of the Gospels.  The scriptures are based upon the process of anamnesis -- or, drawing from a pre-existing source within the child/person's own mind.  Under the heading of Anamnesis (Philosophy), the Wikipedia states: It is the idea that humans possess knowledge from past incarnations and that learning consists of rediscovering that knowledge within us. The article then goes on to say: "Socrates' response is to develop his theory of anamnesis. He suggests that the Soul is immortal, and repeatedly incarnated; knowledge is actually in the Soul from eternity...  What one perceives to be learning, then, is actually the recovery of what one has forgotten. (Once it has been brought back it is true belief, to be turned into genuine knowledge by understanding.) And thus Socrates (and Plato) sees himself, not as a teacher, but as a midwife, aiding with the birth of knowledge that was already there in the student."   And this is why the Apostle Peter is quoted in the writings of his disciple Clement as stating with respect to the scriptures: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without"   Why should the scriptures not be read and understood in accord with "an extraneous sense, which you have brought from without"?   Because the whole of the scriptures are an allegorical presentation using and employing catalysts that connect the outer physical consciousness with the pre-existing inner Soul and spiritual consciousness -- which when rightly understood, is the very essence of the process of anamnesis.  Therefore, when you attempt to teach the meaning of the scriptures, you negate the catalysts and symbols that are contained in the scriptural body, and you inhibit and atrophie the development of those areas of mind that must be developed in order to tap into this inner Source of Knowledge.  Further, this is why Jesus commanded his disciples that they can only have ONE TEACHER -- the True Prophet or Logos -- that dwells within them at the very Core of their Consciousness (see True Prophet).   With respect to this ONE TEACHER that the followers of Jesus were commanded to seek out exclusively, Peter taught that he is "...within the mind of every one of us, but in those who have no desire of the knowledge of God and His righteousness, He is inoperative; but He works in those who seek after that which is profitable to their Souls, and kindles in them the light of knowledge. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other."  In their abandonment of the Gospel First Principles and the One Source of the Truth of all Truths that is drawn out through the process of Anamnesis, the modern Christian world has virtually nothing in common with the purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings.  But what this also means is that the more we learn in the traditional manner as embraced by academia, the more we suppress those innate resources of mind that have the ability to tap into this Inner Source of Ultimate Truth (see Academia And The Feminist Cultural War On Women http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AcademiaWarOnWomen ).  And with respect to the true meaning of the scriptures: the more we study commentaries, attend Bible study groups, and the teachings of traditional religious institutions and authorities, the more we alienate ourselves from the True and Spiritual meaning of the Gospels.

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

 

 

In the fourth century the Church of Constantine took the most corrupted copies of the scriptures and further edited them to make them reflect the (Mithraic) beliefs of Pagan Rome.   What they did was inhibit the Christian world from using the scriptures for their intended purpose as the Key of Knowledge -- removing the most important spiritual teachings and concepts -- and reframing them as mere historical accounts.  And in this respect the Church Father Origen portrayed the historical facade of the literal text as virtually worthless -- i.e., “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).   In the same way that the Gospel of Thomas portrays the wisdom and knowledge of this world as a "corpse", Origen correctly portrays what we teach in academia, our churches, and our cultural wisdom as worthless "shadow" faux-knowledge.  Why?  Because whatever is genuine in this world connects the outer with the inner, the below with the above -- i.e., Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom" (Gospel Of Thomas).   The objective of the scriptures was to connect the prodigal sons and daughters who are lost in this, the Far Country of the Outer Darkness of Mind and Being, with their Inner Source.   Using the process of Anamnesis and the symbols of the scriptures as catalysts to connect "...the inside [with] the outside ...and the above [with] the below ..[thereby] making the male and the female one and the same" -- enabling the prodigal sons and daughters to be restored to the Kingdom.   But the rewriting and corruption of the scriptures in the Churches attempt to only support the historical facade, has inhibited the faith-based believers from fulfilling the Original Objectives and Purpose of the Gospels.  

To their own detriment, the leaders of the modern church ignore the warning of the Apostle: “let no man beguile you in any wise: for (it will not be,) except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God” (2 Thes 2:3-4 ASV).    What the Apostle is herein very clearly predicting is that there would come a time when the god of the Christian Church will be a false god.   Historically speaking, it has been almost universally recognized that the period in time that the Apostle could have been referring to was in the fourth century when the church made a covenant with the Roman Emperor Constantine.   With regard to this falling away, the Adam Clark Commentary writes of this passage of Paul's Epistle: “[Except there come a falling away first] We have the original word apostasia in our word apostasy; and by this term we understand a dereliction of the essential principles of religious truth, either a total abandonment of Christianity itself, or such a corruption of its doctrines as renders the whole system completely inefficient to salvation. But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction” (from the Adam Clarke Commentary).    Not to depreciate or make less the significance of any one of the individual statements presented in the above words, what the modern believer must recognized is the far-reaching totality of the statement: But what this apostasy means is a question which has not yet, and perhaps never will be, answered to general satisfaction”.   Ultimately, what this means to the modern believer is that each and every church authority from the fourth-century to the present, as well as every single preacher of the gospel, speaks from the position of concession -- which concession is that there is a great void in their knowledge of the truth.   Thus, one of the core presumptions upon which our present-day doctrine of faith is based, is that these words of the Apostle Paul are not true.        One of the major causes of the present state of doctrinal chaos is the failure of modern pastors and church authorities to recognize that the key to their dilemma is found in the prediction of the Apostle that there would come a time of total abandonment of the Gospel with respect to the desolation of all genuine spiritual Christian ideas and concepts.   

The purpose of the Gospels was to restore the prodigal sons to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination which is their True Source.   The objective of the god of this world which in the parable is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country, is to keep the prodigal sons shackled to the things of this world.   Which meant that the most important spiritual teachings in the Gospels had to be removed, while the scriptures themselves rewritten to support only the historical facade of the written word which Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).  The first of the scriptures to get a rewrite and pagan makeover, was the Book of Acts.  When the further corruption of the scriptures was seen by both the Ebionite Nazirenes and the Spiritual (Gnostic) Christians, they buried seven (7) caches of scriptures in accord with the numbers and places in the already edited Book of Acts, that would enable these more pure copies of scriptures to be recovered in the future.   And because of the advent of a coming spiritual rebirth, this is why both the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library of scriptures was discovered in the 1945-47 timeframe.  And the importance of these scriptures is explored in my introduction to the Gospel of Thomas (see http://GospelOfThomas.Nazirene.org ).   Because the more spiritually advanced Souls were born into physical bodies where the lower animal nature was more refined and evolved, these more advanced Souls could read these more pure scriptures, and begin to perceive the deeper spiritual meaning that lied concealed beneath the facade of the written text.   Thus, in the same way that it was written of Jesus that: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV) -- those whose lower animal nature was more refined and evolved, were able to comprehend the higher spiritual meaning of the parable.   And in much the same way, the many healings and miracles in the written text of the scriptures, possess a deeper spiritual meaning that could only be seen and comprehended by those with the spiritual eyes and understanding to perceive the deeper spiritual meaning that was lying concealed beneath the facade of the written text that Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14). 

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

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

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

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

A most important reality is presented in the above quotation that has perpetually confused the modern Bible reader -- i.e., "No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the spirit of love and wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Israel, and being of Israel they are children of God..." This verse explains and supports the statement: "These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, 'Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand’" (Matt 10:5-7) -- and again Jesus said: He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt 15:24).  Why was Jesus sent ONLY to the children of the House of Israel? Because only those who can be portrayed as Spiritual Israel -- who have themselves been nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life and are in the process of achieving the next stage of birth -- have attained the necessary level of Completion within themselves -- and are therefore able to receive the Whole of the Gospel Teachings directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God who was called The True Prophet http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TrueProphet .  When rightly understood, the leaders of the Jews were condemned by Jesus, because they were the personification of counterfeit Israel who were portrayed as blind guides -- because having received the Royal Law of the Most High, they observe it outwardly in ritual and tradition.  Only Spiritual Israel is no longer controlled by their lower animal nature -- and have either achieved or are in the process of achieving the next stage of birth into the Kingdom of Man.  If, as stated in the above, there are beasts who walk in the form of man -- and exist at varying levels in the process of achieving the next stage of birth that would make them of the fourth kingdom of man -- then humanity exists at greatly varying levels between walking the earth as a beast in the forum of man, and actually achieving the next stage of birth that would manifest them in the fullness of the fourth kingdom.  Further, only those who are portrayed as the Spiritual House of Israel, are able to enter through the "narrow gate" within them, into the Kingdom, and learn in the presence of the Logos/Son of God.
It isn't that man incarnates as an animal -- but rather, at physical death his animal nature is returned back into nature in accord with the (consciousness) form it has evolved to.  And this same animal nature will once again form the physical body the next time the Soul incarnates into another Soul-personality.  And this is why in the Gospel of the Nazirenes (see http://GospelOfTheNazirenes.org ), the animal kingdom is portrayed as our lesser brothers.  And karmically, as we do to the animals we encounter in this life, the same will be returned back to your own animal nature.  On the other hand, the vegetable kingdom is very much as the Soul of the lower three kingdoms -- which is why the Alice Bailey writings (see http://theconsecratedlife.ebionite.com/#Theosophy ) can be quoted as stating: "One point of interest might here be noted. It is known esoterically that the vegetable kingdom is the transmitter and the transformer of the vital pranic fluid to the other forms of life on our planet. That is its divine and unique function. This pranic fluid, in its form of the astral light, is the reflector of the divine akasha. The second plane therefore reflects itself in the astral plane. Those who seek to read the akashic records, or who endeavour to work upon the astral plane with impunity, and there to study the reflection of events in the astral light correctly, have perforce and without exception to be strict vegetarians".

In the same way that the vegetable kingdom supplies organic life with life-giving oxygen, the vegetable kingdom supplies man with life-giving Light that is the balance of the three lower kingdom -- and is the only food that a sincere seeker should eat:  "And God said, See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food; and it was so. Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day" (Gen 1:29-31 NKJ). 

 

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

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

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

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

To understand the Source of Soul-Light, it is imperative to understand the Cosmology of Mind and the Soul Mind-Matrix where all the previous Soul-generated personalities that the Soul has lived as, not only continue to dwell in what the mystic St. Teresa portrayed as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila).  In the castle or mansion of the Soul exists the previously Soul-generated personalities that continue to make the connection between the upper three Heavenly Kingdoms and the lower three Earthly Kingdoms in that Soul's individual slice of the vertical pie of Creation.  Light, is the product of the merger of Opposites within each Soul -- as portrayed in Gospel of Thomas saying 22: Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom".  In each life the Soul lives as a Soul-generated personality, connections are made that connect the foregoing opposites within the Mind of the Soul=Self -- i.e., "...the inside [with] the outside ...and the above [with] the below ..[thereby] making the male and the female one and the same" -- and once the Soul-generated personalities are re-attached to their Source in the Higher Soul-Self, they act as dynamic neurons in the Mind of the Soul that grows the Light of the Soul.   

How much Light each Soul-generated personality can add to the Soul-Self, is totally dependent upon the degree that they accomplished and fulfilled the above requirement of the Gospel of Thomas:  "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female".   And it is those Soul-generated personalities that actually achieve the next stage of birth and fulfill the Law and the Gospel within themselves, that become the Source of the Light of the Soul.   And it is this reality within the Soul Mind-Matrix that is presented in Gospel of Thomas saying 84, and is conveyed in the words: (84) Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"   What is being stated?   Saying 84 presents what is portrayed as YOUR LIKENESS, and YOUR IMAGES.  The images that failed to become manifest, are those Soul-generated personalities that were basically followers to the thinking, mindset and cultural/religious lifestyles of this world -- and being of this world, they failed to achieve the next stage of Soul-Birth that is necessary to become Manifest.   And this is why the vast majority of Souls appear as weak flickering lights.   Yet, even in the failure of these Soul-generated images/personalities, they continue to exist as building-blocks that act as a connection and catalyst of advancement by connecting the upper three Heavenly Kingdoms with the lower three Earthly Kingdoms -- thereby bringing together the Seven Spiritual Centers that Create the White Light of the Soul-Self.   While it is true that each life that can be portrayed as a failed-image does not become Manifest, these Soul-generated personalities continue to act as low-level catalysts that connect the Upper and the Lower across the spectrum of the Seven Kingdom as they continue to exist within the Soul Mind-Matrix.   

 

 

When rightly understood, the above conclusions of the modern physicists confirm the portrayal of man's reality in the analogy of Plato's Cave (see Cave).  In what is portrayed as Plato's Cave, mankind is portrayed as prisoners who are held captive, and can only see shadow-images that are danced upon the walls of the Cave -- and because of constraints, are unable to see the source of the images.   Therefore, the prisoners in the Cave are under the false assumption that the shadow-images they see, are real.   In the same way that modern science portrays matter in its material form as a "blemish" created by the forces in the UNSEEN FIELD, in the analogy of Plato's Cave mankind is a prisoner who sees only shadow-images of a higher UNSEEN REALITY.  The images that mankind sees with his physical senses are incomplete allegorical shadow-images, because the three-dimensional images in this realm are projections from the Source-Field where they exist as twelve-dimensional realities of higher mind and being that cannot be expressed in the three-dimensional images of this world.

One of the primary objectives of all of the ancient Mystery Religions -- as well as the path of the monk (see The Way Of The Monk) -- as well as all the genuine Gnostic teachings that developed the seeker to acquire esoteric or Self-Knowledge, was to enable the person to gaze into the UNSEEN SOURCE that is portrayed by both modern physicists as the Field, and the analogy of Plato's Cave.  In the Gospels, man's plight is portrayed as having been cast out into the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- until which time mankind who is portrayed as the lost prodigal son, has put on the required "wedding garment" and come to The Call (see TheCall).   To accomplish this transformation of the prodigal son's lower animal nature, the person had to bring about the necessary expansion and deepening of mind that enabled what is portrayed as the "eyes of the heart" to begin to open and perceive into the Source in the Ćtheric Field.  

There exist words and realties that cannot be redefined by man.   The Greek word Gnosis is a word that is beyond man's ability to redefine -- and it indicates Spiritual Knowledge revealed directly to man by God.   Gnosis cannot be written in a book.   It cannot be taught by one man to another.   Gnosis is not at all an alternative historical tradition that was suppressed by the Church or any other group.   Gnosis has nothing to do with the wisdom of this world.   It is impossible to study Gnosis in a school, college or university.   The Gospel of Thomas portrays this world as dwelling in a state of abject poverty, because the wisdom of this world is devoid of the essential elements of what can be portrayed as Higher Spiritual Knowledge -- the Divine Manna of the Kingdom -- or, in the Greek language what is portrayed as Gnosis.   In the original biblical Greek language, the knowledge of man that was taught by other men, was portrayed differently than the Divine Manna of the Kingdom that could ONLY be imparted to man directly from the Logos -- i.e., this Heavenly Spiritual Knowledge was called Gnosis.   Paul taught the necessity of seeking Spiritual Knowledge which in the Greek language is Gnosis -- i.e., Ephesians 1:17 states: "and asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in your knowledge of Him"  This Knowledge that Paul teaches to seek out -- Divine Knowledge that only God can impart to sincere seekers who have prepared themselves to receive the Divine Manna -- is called Gnosis in the Greek language.  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).   And how did a seeker/disciple obtain these enlightened eyes of the heart? Very briefly, by putting on the "wedding garment" purity (see The Required Wedding Garment -- and by fulfilling the role of a virgin who awaits the Lord with the oil of purification -- and by becoming the "good ground" that permits the necessary expansion of the facilities of mind to be brought about, which enables the seeker/disciple to be taught by the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet.   And in the same way that in the parable of the ten virgins it was said to those who had failed to prepare themselves with the oil of purification that "Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you" -- even though they believed and had called upon the Lord and was awaiting his coming, this reality of the believer who has failed to prepare himself is further explored in the early Christian scripture known as the Shepherd of Hermas.    When rightly understood, one of the primary purposes of the scriptures and the Gospel was to "open the eyes of the heart" as expressed in the words "Gnosis Kardias".   And this is why it is stated: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, 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).  Thus, the reality of the words: "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17). 

Mystics such as Pythagoras required his disciples to live a strict lifestyle that in countless ways parallels the Gospel teachings.  Why did he do this?  Because only those who have evolved the organic mind through the process of mental-expansion and deepening are able to begin to perceive into the UNSEEN SOURCE of man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality that is portrayed as the Source of the shadow-images of this world that are danced upon the walls of Plato's Cave.   What the Mystics were seeking was to learn and acquire Divine Knowledge from the Inner Source of Light and Knowledge which they portrayed as the Logos -- defined as: "Logos, ( Greek: 'word,' 'reason,' or 'plan') plural logoi, in Greek philosophy and theology, the divine reason implicit in the cosmos, ordering it and giving it form and meaning".  The mystic priest Giordano Bruno portrayed the Inner Source as  "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."    Further explaining: "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it."  In the Gospels all followers of Jesus are commanded to learn ONLY from this One Teacher which is the Inner Source that is portrayed as the True Prophet -- i.e., quoting Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement 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. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other...".  

In order to begin to tap into this Inner Source of Knowledge, the person has to begin the process of transforming the body and mind into what has been portrayed as the Consecrated Living Temple that enables the process of mental-expansion and deepening to be brought about (see Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple).  And it is this transformation of the self that we are in this world that enables the seeker to begin to learn from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God as portrayed above by Giordano Bruno, that was taught by Pythagoras, Plato and the ancient Mystery Religions.   With the primary difference between the teachings of the mystics and Jesus as portrayed in the words of author and visionary Philip K. Dick who wrote with respect to the original disciples of Jesus that:  "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here.  He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)."    This is true -- and that the original Gospel message was intended to prepare the disciple of TheWay to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom, is easily demonstrated at the subheading: The Third Fatal Mistake - Not Proving The Truth

One of the primary objectives of the Wisdom Teachings of the mystics, was to develop the Intuitive spheres of mind of the initiate to enable them to begin to learn from the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God/True Prophet).  And as Philip K. Dick presents in the foregoing: "...other mystery religions only bring about amnesis" -- meaning that where the Mystery Religions could only employ the process of Amnesis to tap into the Inner Logos, the Original Gospel teachings enabled the disciples of Jesus to actually gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom.   According to Socrates and Plato, the most important forms of knowledge come not from formal instruction, but by a re-awakening of already existing dormant or latent knowledge that exists within our own mind and being.  This is called anamnesis.  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" (see Anamnesis - The Innate Knowledge Of The Truth Of All Truths).    That the Original Gospels were designed to develop the innate resources of mind that enabled the seeker to tap into the Inner Source, is explored and demonstrated at The Gospels Embody The Principles Of Anamnesis

It is said that the mystic George Gurdjieff emerged out of the Sufis, and traveled first to India to learn from the yogis, and then to Tibet to learn from the Buddhists, but after twenty years came to America where he taught what has often been portrayed as Esoteric Christianity which he called The Fourth Way.  Why did Gurdjieff abandon the Eastern Religions?  Gurdjieff as quoted by his disciple P.D. Ouspensky in his book In Search Of The Miraculous where Ouspensky writes: "The third way is the way of the yogi. This is the way of knowledge, the way of mind. The way of the yogi consists in working on the third room and in striving to enter the fourth room by means of knowledge. The yogi reaches the fourth room by developing his mind, but his body and emotions remain undeveloped and, like the fakir and the monk, he is unable to make use of the results of his attainment. He knows everything but can do nothing. In order to begin to do he must gain the mastery over his body and emotions, that is, over the first and second rooms. To do this he must again set to work and again obtain results by means of prolonged efforts."   When rightly understood, Gurdjieff confirmed the statement of Philip K. Dick that the Mystery Religions were able to bring about that condition of mind and spirit that enabled the initiate/disciple to tap into the Inner Source of Knowledge -- and, only the original Gospel teachings of Jesus went beyond the Mystery Religions and enabled the disciple to actually enter into the Inner Kingdom.   Gurdjieff's statement that the yogi (guru or eastern master) "...knows everything but can do nothing", is in reference to the incompletion of the Eastern paths which rely upon meditation and being able to access the perception of the higher spiritual centers in their head, but lack the necessary Wholeness that enables the seeker to actually enter the Inner Kingdom.  And because their Eastern path lacks the necessary Wholeness, Gurdjieff correctly states that the yogis must then begin to develop the lower centers and manifest Wholeness as presented in the words: "...In order to begin to do he must gain the mastery over his body and emotions, that is, over the first and second rooms. To do this he must again set to work and again obtain results by means of prolonged efforts."  The problem is that because of their focus on the upper centers or chakras in the head, their lower centers remained undeveloped and atrophied.   That the Gospel teachings and associated thinking, mindset and lifestyle enabled the disciples of Jesus to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom is demonstrated in the quotation from The Third Fatal Mistake - Not Proving The Truth:

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?"   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 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 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).   

 

In the above it is easily demonstrated that the Original Gospel teachings were not at all about the belief in a god-man -- but rather, a path that enables the seeker/disciple to enter the Inner Kingdom -- and as the lost prodigal son, return to the Kingdom of his Heavenly Father (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma.   It is clear that the objective was for the believer to utilize the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge -- turned within one's own mind and being -- and gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom.     

 

When the Gospel account of Jesus taught that there was only One Way into Life and the Kingdom, he was making reference to achieving the necessary transformation of the self that enabled the seeker to attain Wholeness -- which made it possible for the seeker/disciple to attain the subsequent stages of birth.   As stated in the words of Philip K. Dick: Jesus "...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis".   And what I write is very different than what others write, because in my own life in the first century I was able to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom (see http://Cronshaw.us ) -- and I was not only able to duplicate this accomplishment in subsequent lifetimes my Soul lived, but was able to initiate the necessary subsequent stages of birth in my wife, who has been my Soul-Companion and Seeker over the course of countless lifetimes.  Which means that because the Laws of Creation returns to every person the fruit of their past thoughts, deeds and accomplishments, the very fabric of our Marriage Union bestowed upon us the ability to spiritually restore all that we had accomplished together over the course of our Soul's previous lives.

In the same way that we only perceive and understand in part -- unable to see and understand the Causal-Factors which exist in an Unseen Source -- so too is our own self.  Isn't this what is being portrayed by Paul when he stated that organic "natural" physical man was incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the Soul and the Spiritual meaning of the Gospel (see Animal-Soul) while still in an immature "natural" condition of mind at 1 Cor 13:11: "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I set aside childish ways."  Portraying the immature perceptive-vision or organic man: "Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror" -- stating at Gal 4:19: "My children, I am again suffering labor pains for you until Christ is formed in you" -- which Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the mind enables the mature seeker/disciple to perceive into the Unseen Source -- i.e., making reference to our True-Self "...then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known" (1 Cor13:12).  

In the original Gospels the historical man Jesus is portrayed as becoming the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) when he was baptized in the Jordan and the voice of the Father was heard saying: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee".   Which means that on that day he was, and became, Anointed by the Holy Spirit.   And it was the position of Jesus' original disciples that he (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).  It was therefore the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the mind of Jesus that enabled him to perceive the Source of all things -- providing him with what can be portrayed as Supernatural vision and enlightened understanding -- that this Anointing was the result of his fulfilling the Law within his own mind and being -- and that ANYONE who evolves the mind to the maturity portrayed above by Paul and fulfills the Law within their own mind and being, will be able to perceive into the Source-Field and possess the same supernatural vision and enlightened understanding that their brother Jesus did.   And as the first of the prodigal sons to to fulfill the Law within himself, he said of all mankind: "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).

In the allegorical Genesis account, the original Adam which means mankind -- and therefore does not personify a single person -- can be portrayed as the embodiment of an undivided AdamEve -- wherein like our Soul and True-Self, the polarities of male and female exist in a state of absolute ONENESS.  Therefore, in the First Creation account it is stated: "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 - see also The Natural Laws And The Two Creation Accounts).  The division of male and female did not exist in the first and primary Creation account -- and yet, male and female existed in the personification of Adam -- meaning all of mankind.   What this also means is that the Unified Opposites of Male and Female expressed themselves through the Third-Force Balance of Mind -- which is the basis of the Doctrine of the Trinity that was hijacked and corrupted by the fourth-century Church of Rome.  From the perspective of our own True-Self -- i.e., our Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ) that is a Being of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) -- the Light of our Soul or True-Self is the expression of the Wholeness of the Male and Female paradoxical opposites that is the Source of our Being.   It wasn't until the second Creation account that the feminine polarity of mankind (woman) was portrayed as being drawn from the side of Adam -- thereby splitting mankind into two halves or polarities, creating the Duality of Self in this world.  Why?  Why would the Laws separate and divide the male and female paradoxical opposites of our Being?   So growth and development can be brought about through the interaction of opposite polarities within Self -- with this growth being brought about in the Third-Force of Mind which is the balance between the two polarities.  

The genetics of a human is 46 chromosomes, comprised of 23 pairs -- 23 from the mother and 23 from the father.  In the natural state, both the sperm and the ovum are 46 chromosomes -- and to create an embryo, both the sperm and the ovum must split into 23 chromosomes each.   This splitting of the chromosomes then enables the 23 chromosomes of the sperm from the father to be able to join with the 23 chromosomes in the ovum of the mother, to create an embryo that can evolve into a fetus and be born into this life.   It is the joining of the opposite pairs of male and female chromosomes into an embryo that forms the primary marriage and union of opposites that must be holographically duplicated at every holographic level of Creation.   And when rightly understood, all the ignorance of mankind -- all the evil and violence -- is all the result of man's blindness to the holographic reality of this essential Union of Male and Female Opposites that must be restored in this Primary Marriage -- on every (holographic) level of our Mind and Being.

Ignorance prevails and has drown mankind in the lagoon of abject intellectual poverty, because the vast majority of mankind fail to understand the the foregoing simple lesson of the Primary Fact of Life, in conjunction with the understanding that every cell possess it's own level of both independent consciousness.   In the abstract from the Scientific World Journal entitled: Human development VIII: a theory of "deep" quantum chemistry and cell consciousness: quantum chemistry controls genes and biochemistry to give cells and higher organisms consciousness and complex behavior, it states that: "We suggest that deep quantum chemistry gives the cell consciousness and all the qualities and abilities related to consciousness".   And what this confirms is the assertion of the mystic that every cell has its own ćtheric field and its own unique consciousness.  Which means that the sperm of the male possesses its own consciousness that is related to that sperm -- and the ovum of the female possesses its own consciousness that is related to that ovum.  Which means that the above quoted statements 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” -- together with the statement of  cyberneticist David Foster who described “an intelligent universe”, where “…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”.   When this modern realization of science is understood, it not only confirms the reality of mankind as personified in the allegorical Genesis accounts, but also presents to mankind the source of all ignorance and its related expression of evil and violence.  @@@ 

In the same way, Adam in the First Creation account was AdamEve -- in the same way that a male who retains the original pattern of Creation is of an "XY" genetic configuration -- male and female -- Wholeness and Completion can only be defined and understood from the reality of this Divine Patten where the paradoxical opposites produce and express themselves through the Third-Force Balance of Mind.  In the ancient world the revealer of all Truth was portrayed as the Logos -- i.e., the Mind of God (aka Son of God and True Prophet).   And that man the man who had achieved the necessary Wholeness and was able to initiate the subsequent stages of birth, possessed the innate ability to tap into, and learn directly from the spark of the Logos that dwells within all of mankind -- and this restoral of Adam and Eve into an evolved AdamEve which was expressed through an evolved Soul-Mind, was the true objective of genuine religious paths.   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... The identification of Jesus with the logos, which is implied in various places in the New Testament but stated specifically in the Fourth Gospel, was further developed in the early church but more on the basis of Greek philosophical ideas... the early Christian Fathers stated that Christ as the preexistent logos (1) reveals the Father to mankind and is the subject of the Old Testament manifestations of God; (2) is the divine reason in which the whole human race shares, so that the 6th-century-BC philosopher and others who lived with reason were Christians before Christ; and (3) is the divine will and word by which the worlds were framed”

With respect to the above, from our modern perspective, 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” And in the parables of the Gospels, this  "...association with their vices” is expressed in the loss the prodigal son suffers as a result of squandering away his inheritance on "riotous living".   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”.   If man is ignorant of God -- and cannot break through the inner barrier which permits him to receive the impressions of the Logos that the Ebionite Nazirene followers and disciples of Jesus portrayed as the True Prophet -- then this ignorance is the result of that person's lifestyle and mindset with respect to squandering away our inheritance as the divine offspring of Creator-God on "riotous living".    The problem is that once the damage has been done, it is difficult to restore the purity and necessary framework of mind that would bring about success.    In the same way that 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.    In teaching the child to think and live in accord with our anti-Spiritual culture, they become imbued with an quasi-Atheist mindset regardless of their profession of faith and belief in God.   

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” -- then this wisdom by Clement of Alexandria was confirmed by the Apostle Peter who warns in the Homilies of his disciple Clement, 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. Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other. But He is soon found by those who diligently seek Him through love of the truth, and whose souls are not taken possession of by wickedness. For He is present with those who desire Him in the innocence of their spirits, who bear patiently, and draw sighs from the bottom of their hearts through love of the truth; but He deserts malevolent minds, because as a prophet He knows the thoughts of every one. And therefore let no one think that he can find Him by his own wisdom, unless, as we have said, he empty his mind of all wickedness, and conceive a pure and faithful desire to know Him. For when any one has so prepared himself, He Himself as a prophet, seeing a mind prepared for Him, of His own accord offers Himself to his knowledge”.   If the witness to these words is true, then the whole dilemma of the pseudo-intellectual, religious critic and Atheist is presented in the Light of Truth that cannot be dismissed -- in view of the fact that their ignorance is not only self-imposed, but has been forewarned. 

The key in the subheading entitled Oneness Within The Third-Force Morphic Field , is where I portray the Soul-Chromosomes of AdamEve as "XYXX" -- and when the male and female of AdamEve was split and divided, the divided male ("XY") and female (XX) came into being in order for the opposite polarities of the Soul to interact and evolve in the same way that when a sperm and ovum join and form an embryo.   And without this division and separation of the opposite paradoxical polarities of the Soul, no interaction and growth could be brought about.   While a man is genetically "XY", and a female is genetically "XX", the gender of the embryo is determined by whether the split "X" or the "Y" chromosomes of the father joins with, and fertilizes, the "X" ovum of the mother.   And in the same way that the sperm and ovum must split and divide in order to join with its opposite to create an embryo, only the male-half or polarity  of the Soul, or the female-half polarity of the Soul, can manifest in the developing fetus and then be born in what can holographically be portrayed as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm when the fetus is born into this world.   While it is true that the male retains the "XY" genetic pattern, the inwardly Intuitive looking "X" is so overpowered and dominated by the outward Linear looking "Y", that most men are incapable of utilizing the Intuitive spheres of mind.  And therefore woman who is portrayed in Genesis as a "help-meet", must be understood as man's most immediate savior that saves him from his own imbalances (see Woman As Man's Help-Meet And Savior ).  

For many reasons the pre-existent Soul-Self cannot manifest in the physical body, because of the duality of this realm.  Further, where the Soul of man is a twelve-dimensional Being (see SoulSelf.org ), this realm is limited to a three-dimensional reality.  So what is projected into the body at conception, is an embryonic image of your higher Soul-Self (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image ).   The first stage of birth provides the projected soul-image with a body which enters this world which is best understood as a Mental-Womb (see Mental Womb ), as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm.   Therefore, as a man or a woman you are very much a half of the Whole of the Pattern of your True-Self.   And when the allegory of Genesis is spiritually understood, the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Knowledge of Good and Evil), is representative of the divided male and female thoughts and impressions (see The Restoral Of Adam And Eve) that in their divided state, inhibit the necessary Wholeness to exist at a Soul-Level of Mind and Being.   Which means that to eat and be nourished by the Life-Giving Fruit of the Tree of Life (see Tree Of Life), you must overcome the duality of male and female as personified in the statement in the Gospel of Thomas: "Jesus said to them, When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."   What we see is the interaction of the paradoxical opposites of the twelve spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life.  Thus, with respect to the paradoxical opposites of mind, what is required is manifest in the words: "When you make the two one"  -- wherein, you must "make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside"  , which confirms the statement on the Delphic Oracle that "If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside" -- and the "above like the below", what you are doing is bringing together the (lower) earthly spheres of mind with the (upper) spiritual spheres of mind -- and lastly, "when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female", what you are doing is bringing the outer male and female columns of the Tree of Duality back into the Center in the Tree of Life.  In order to become and manifest your Un-manifest True Self that exists at the very Source of your Being, you must fulfill this essential teaching that the First Century Christians embraced (see The Gospel Enigma That Modern Christians Can't Comprehend) -- a teaching which the later Gentile Church removed from the canonical Gospels and suppressed -- thereby depriving the Christian world of the knowledge of how the Inner Kingdom must be entered.    

In order to become and manifest your True-Self which is your Higher Soul-Self that exists at the very Source of your Being, you must fulfill this essential teaching which was embraced by the First Century Christians (see The Gospel Enigma That Modern Christians Can't Comprehend) -- a teaching which the later Gentile Church removed from the canonical Gospels and suppressed -- thereby depriving the Christian world of the knowledge of how the Inner Kingdom must be entered.   And it is our True-Self and our Soul's relationship to Creator-God, that is being made reference to in the adage to Know Thyself.   And this is why the Gospel of Thomas proclaims: "When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty... Whoever finds himself is superior to the world".  The Gospel of Thomas does not proclaim that if you don't know God, you dwell in poverty -- because it is impossible to Know God, without first fulfilling the ancient adage to Know Thyself -- and to Know Thyself, you must prevail over your divided self, and Know from the perspective of your Higher Soul-Self.   And man cannot know the higher reality of his Soul, until be re-forms the Divine Pattern portrayed in the allegorical account of Adam and Eve, into a Condition of abiding Oneness within himself. "The soul...", writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions”. (see Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila). 

What is the meaning of the words: "...then you will become known"???  How can it even be suggested that God does not know us?   Yet, these words were not only intentionally written in this manner -- but they present an important series of foundational facts that few people who claim to know God understand the reality of.   And in assessment of the world's religions that exist today: Regardless of the religion you are affiliated with, the fact that you do not understand the underlying reality that is portrayed in these words, is an indication that you are spiritually flat-lined, and can make little to no progress beyond your present point.  To a degree these same words are repeated in Jesus' statement that should be heeded by every person professing to believe:  "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord!' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the person who does what my Father in heaven wants.  Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name? Didn't we force out demons and do many miracles by the power and authority of your name?' Then I will tell them publicly, 'I've never known you. Get away from me, you evil people.'  (Mat: 7:21-23).    Thus, even if you profess to be a believer who in the name of Jesus has performed miracles, cast out demons, and prophesied in the name of Christ, the Bible warns that unless you fulfill the Will of the Father, that Jesus will state of you that he has "never known you" -- and for many of the same reasons that it can be said that you are "not known by God".    And when it is realized that the Christian Church has totally rejected the original teachings and objectives set forth in the original Gospel accounts (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma) -- that what the original disciples professed as Truth has not only been rejected by the Church, but has been condemned as heresy.  And when it is realized that the Church even corrupted the original words spoken to man directly by God to mankind in the Gospels as heresy (see The Ten Words) -- changing them, in order to make the Gospels support Roman Pagan doctrines of belief -- then it can truly be recognized that not only has the Church rejected the Will of the Father -- but to those who profess to believe, and yet they believe the doctrines of Pagan Rome, that the Jesus they call upon has said to them: "Get away from me, you evil people ...I've never known you".    Again, from the Epistles of Paul is this declaration: "But the man who loves God is known by God" (1 Cor 8:3 NIV) -- which indicates that those who fail to do the Will of God, cannot love God, and therefore is not even "known by God".   And since few people can fulfill the words spoken by Jesus -- i.e., "When you come to know yourselves..." -- it also remains true that they are not known in the way that they imagine -- i.e.,  "...then you will become known".  At present you exist as an expression of your Higher Soul-Self -- and until you become your True-Self, it will remain impossible for you to Know God -- or, for God to know and embrace you.   And you have the potential to become your True-Self and achieve the next stage of birth where you are able to fully enter the Kingdom of Man (see  Entering The Kingdom Of Man) -- you can neither Know Thyself, Know God, or become Known by God.   While it is true you have the potential to become restored to Man as portrayed in the First Creation Account of Genesis see The Restoral Of Adam And Eve), in the same way that neither a mother or father can know the person who might have been had their sperm and ovum formed and embryo and achieved physical birth: "Jesus answered and said to him, Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?  Jesus answered, Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God" (John 3:1-12) -- you cannot Know or be Known by God in the manner that most religions promote.  And that these words of Jesus were spoken from an Essene-Ebionite perspective, is seen in the statement: "...So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.  Nicodemus answered and said to Him, How can these things be?  Jesus answered and said to him, Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?  Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness.  If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?" (John 3:1-12 NKJ).   These words were said to Nicodemus, because as a religious leader, he was obligated to convey to the people the absolute need to bring about the next stages of birth within themselves.    The portrayal of "We" -- i.e., "...We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness" -- is stated in the plural, because this knowledge was the very Core of Essene Ebionite teachings, and is true with respect to anyone who understands the Laws and the esoteric meaning of the scriptures, and is able to bring about the next stage of birth. 

The Gospels warn of false shepherds and clergy who will lead the multitude of believers astray.  We can easily see this in the modern clergy who have promoted among believers a dispensation from fulfilling the Law within them and bringing about the next stage of birth, and replaced the whole of the process of birth with a prayer.  Further, academia possesses absolutely no knowledge of the necessity of bringing about the next stage of birth, and has led mankind down the path of abject failure and self-ignorance.   Moreover, our modern over-sexualized culture in conjunction with our spiritually disenfranchised governments, have created an environment where it has become virtually impossible to live the necessary mindset and lifestyle to promote and bring about the process of subsequent birth.    

We can see this reality of abject self-ignorance in the question as to why was Nicodemus -- a teacher of the Jews -- too carnal to comprehend both the spiritual meaning of the scriptures and the need to achieve the next stage of birth?  Quoting from The Essene Foundation Of Judaism And Christianity: Someone who can be portrayed as a Jew is at an intermediate level where having received the Law (Torah) of God, they have not yet mentally and spiritually evolved to the level where they are able to use the scriptures for their intended purpose as the  Key of Knowledge to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom -- thereby enabling the prodigal son to return to his Source in Spiritual Eden.   In the same way that the Essenes who can be portrayed as Spiritual Israel were the authors of the scriptures used by the Jews -- and the Essenes served as a Spiritual Sanctuary, fulfilling the role of spiritual healers or physicians for the Jews who were sincere seekers of Higher Truth.   With respect to the Essenes being the healers and physicians, Jesus himself said: "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 Church, if Jesus is the physician, then Jesus himself attested to the fact that those who achieve and sustain a condition of Wholeness, do not need the physician -- with Jesus himself stating that as a physician, Jesus did not come for the salvation of those who are Whole, but only those who are sick and in need of the physician.   And in total opposition to Church dogma, what this also means is that at the time of Jesus, there existed people who he portrayed as "whole [and] righteous" who did not need Jesus the physician.   

When the historical man Jesus who was himself born an Essene totally prevailed in fulfilling the Law within himself -- and in the very Words of God spoken to mankind, Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) when the voice of God attested to the fact that Jesus became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River: "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee" (see TheTenWords.com) -- 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.   That the Ebionites who were condemned by the  later Roman Church who created the Jesus-god myth, were correct -- and that the vast majority of Gentiles were too heathen and pagan to comprehend the teachings of Jesus and the original Gospel message -- is a reality that the Dead Sea Scrolls have confirmed.  When Jesus became At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God, this completion of the Soul-Journey was declared and set froth in those scriptures known to us today as the Gospels.  And being composed in the Sacred Language of Biblical Hebrew Characters which was used solely by the Essenes, these same Essene sources also composed the Gospels written in the same Living Biblical Hebrew Characters.  Which in conjunction with the findings of the scholars who worked on the Dead Sea Scrolls demonstrate that the New Covent and its Ebionite Nazirene foundation, was the Essene teachings brought to the highest of spiritual levels and completion.    

What this means is that, as a divided man or woman, you biologically lack the necessary Wholeness to be joined to your True Self that is the Source of your Being.   And in the words of the Gospel account of Jesus: "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 one of the primary objectives of the Original Gospel teachings was for the person to achieve this state of Wholeness -- and that the personification of wholeness was not a matter of belief -- but a matter of the Natural Laws of this realm.  The vast majority of modern scientists can't even begin to deal with the emerging body of physicists who portray the Source of what we see as existing in an UNSEEN Field (see above The True Facts And Realities Of Life) 

 

If we were able to communicate with a sperm or ovum that has been released into a women's womb, we would say: If you fail to merge and become an embryo -- evolve into a fully formed fetus -- and emerge at birth out of your mother's womb -- your failure to bring about Wholeness within the Divine Pattern of Creation will inhibit you from achieving birth -- thereby derailing your entrance into life in this world.  From the perspective of the holographic pattern of Creation, what is true of a sperm and ovum that has been released into a woman's womb, is also true of a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm that entered this world which is a  Mental Womb designed to bring about the next stage of birth.  In the February 1979 Psychology Today interview with brain scientist Karl Pribram, the world which he attempted to describe confirmed the vision witnessed by the ancient mystics and enlightened wise men -- and when their vision of man's reality is properly understood, confirmed the reality of the Bible that neither true believer nor staunch critic is even prepared to acknowledge and understand -- i.e., Pribram wrote: “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality. It’s that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different reality, one that can explain things that have hitherto remained scientifically inexplicable: paranormal phenomena… synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events”   More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”   

What this means is that the blueprint of the Whole -- or the Macrocosm -- is imbedded into each of the levels and elements that make up the Whole.  Therefore, what is true of the physical, is also true of the mental and spiritual levels of self and reality.   At the level of the Macrocosm, the paradoxical opposite polarities of male and female are harmonized by the third-force offspring where the opposites are ONE.  But in this lower level of reality that has three-dimensional limitations imposed upon it so that the paradoxical opposites can interact, positive/negative, male/female opposites and the third-force balance/offspring permeate all the lower levels of Creation.  But more important is the fact that what is true of the male/female essence (sperm/ovum), is also true of women and men as the next level of Cosmic Ovum and Sperm. 

In the same way that a sperm and ovum are generated in order to fulfill a certain purpose, this same reality and purpose is true with respect to what can be portrayed as a holographic Cosmic Ovum and Sperm.  The Soul or True-Self exists as the embodiment of Wholeness where the opposite polarities of male and female on all levels of Being, exist in harmony and absolute balance.  But, the Soul, which is our True Self, exists in a twelve-dimensional realm that enables this Absolute Oneness to manifest.  And because all growth and development can only be achieved where paradoxical opposites interact with each other (see The Evolving Soul), the Soul must generate an Embryonic Image (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) that is necessary to bring about the process of Soul development and advancement.  In the example of the New Testament teachings, Jesus states at Matthew 5:48: "You must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect".  And in the same way that each Soul has been generated by God and exists as a Single Neuron in the Mind of God, each soul-generated personality continues to exist across the dimension of Time as a single neuron in the mind of the Soul (see The Matrix Of Soul-Mind).   @@@    

When a sperm and ovum fails to combine into an embryo in a woman's womb, that sperm and ovum are discarded, and a new ovum is then released during the next ovulation cycle.   When rightly understood, Gospel of Thomas saying 84 states the same thing with those Cosmic Ovum and Sperm that are released into the Womb of Mother-Earth (see Saying 84 - The Foundation Of The Soul And The Threefold Self).  And while the failed soul-generated personalities do not cease to exist because Time exists as a dimension of Soul-Mind (see The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man), Jesus was correct when he stated that  "...unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."   Those who fail to overcome their inherent human duality, and do not achieve the next stage of Soul-Birth, can neither reincarnate as the Eastern religions believe, or go to Glory as the Western religions believe.   And this is true regardless of your dogmatic religious beliefs, your philosophy, or your ideology.    

 in view of the fact that those who were living at the time of Jesus who had achieved the necessary Wholeness, did not need the physician and the Gospel teachings (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma ), we must understand that achieving the necessary level of Wholness has nothing to do with dogmatic belief -- and very much the transformation of self which brings about the next stage of mental-birth.  Wholeness is achieved when a person "...makes the two one, and ...the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below" and especially when you are able to overcome the division of Adam and Eve within you, and "...you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female".    

The allegorical Genesis account states that death will result when the fruit of the Tree of Duality is eaten.   And this reality of death is presented in the Gospel of Philip where it states: “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” (see The Gospel Enigma That Modern Christians Can't Comprehend).   When the pattern of mind is understood, it is comprised of four (4) paradoxical trinities -- thereby manifesting twelve (12) spheres of mind that must be independently evolved and brought into a higher reality of Oneness, in order to achieve what is personified as Biblical-Wholeness (see Tree of Life).   And only when this Wholeness across the spectrum of the twelve spheres of mind is achieved, can the Life-Giving fruit of the Tree of Life be eaten -- 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) AND "'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).   This Sacred Knowledge of Self and God is the Divine Manna of the Kingdom -- and this Divine Knowledge can only be given and consumed by those who bring about the necessary condition of Wholeness.   
     

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Gospel of Thomas confirms the little understood adage of the ancient Wise Men, Mystics and Visionaries when it makes the statement: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   The Gospel does not say that if you don't know God you dwell in poverty.   Neither does it say that if you don't know Jesus you dwell in poverty.  And when rightly understood, if you fail to Know Thyself, then it is impossible to know either Jesus or God.   But just as important is the fact that the Gospel of Thomas very clearly reiterates the wisdom of the oracles of the ancient enlightened wise visionaries of man's more distant past and states that if you fail to Know Thyself, then you know virtually nothing of any real substance and value.    

If we could somehow transport one of the wise visionaries of the past -- i.e., men such as Pythagoras, Socrates or Plato -- and bring them before our most esteemed halls of learning today, they would have no other alternative than to admit that modern man dwells in abject intellectual poverty.    Why?   Because modern man is lacking the most important aspect of knowledge that he can possess -- a base of knowledge which is essential to the very foundation of all knowledge -- which knowledge, is self-knowledge.  

If the man Jesus was transported across time and brought before our Churches today, he would have to acknowledge the fact that modern Christianity has absolutely nothing in common with the original Gospel teachings of TheWay (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma).   And no doubt, his truthful words would provoke anger among the parishioners, and he would be run out of the Churches as an impostor and a heretic.   Over its long history, the Church tortured and burnt mystics at the stake who spoke openly against the man-made dogma of the Church (see Spiritual Religion) -- and if Pope Francis encountered the soul who lived as St. Francis today, the pope would reject every word his namesake would say.   In a little acknowledged first century writing known as the Epistle of Peter To James it is written that if the body of esoteric teachings that could only be revealed to the core followers and disciples of Jesus were to become lost, that  "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error" -- and the validity of these profound words have come upon us and has been proven correct today.    Why?   Because modern man with all but a very few exceptions, fails to understand what can be portrayed as the Cosmology of Mind that is necessary to comprehend the blueprint of one's own being.  

Who are those whom Jesus was making reference to when he said at Matt 8:11-12): "I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness.  In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”   Who were these seekers of whom Jesus was making reference to?   They were the very people who sought to escape the "outer darkness" of mind and being, by seeking to Know Thyself and the Kingdom within.   Thus, the Delphic Oracle states: "Heed these words, you who wish to probe the depths of Nature: If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside.  If you ignore the wonders of your own House, how do you expect to find other wonders?  In you is hidden the Treasure of Treasures.  Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods."    Which provokes the question: How can it even be stated: "If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside"???    While the vast majority of modern authorities would immediately reject this statement as absurd, when rightly understood it is true beyond even their ability to grasp and imagine!   And yet these same men and women who lack the depth of self-comprehension  to understand these words of unparalleled wisdom, are hailed as teachers and authorities in our modern culture.   But what they are teaching, as well as their mode of instruction, is doing more to inhibit the process of true education, causing the students to be totally alienated from the True Source of Knowledge and Knowing. 

Yet, change is on the horizon.   What these words of wisdom represent is a reality that modern physicists are only now beginning to prove and comprehend -- i.e., that not only is this world a reflected shadow-image which the Gospel portrays as the "outer darkness" -- which parallels that of a higher causal reality as set forth in the analogy of Plato's Cave  -- but in taking the analogy of Plato's Cave one step further, modern physics has demonstrated that each person is subject to their own self-created world that would constitute their own personal images of Plato's Cave But when rightly understood, what this means is that it is imperative to understand what we think we are seeing -- why we are seeing and perceiving in the manner that we are -- and why our organic human consciousness is limiting and inhibiting us from seeing more -- much less, the Whole of man's true reality?   Which is why the Gospel of Thomas declares: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you."       

As an auxiliary part of this article (see below What Is A Holographic Pattern?), I have a section which demonstrates how modern physics has proven not only the vision of the mystic, but also the reality of the analogy of Plato's Cave -- which parallels the Gospel portrayal of the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- wherein, those who failed to put on the required Wedding Garment (see The Call)t, are cast into the outer darkness: "And cast ye the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness; and there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Mat 25:30).   And in the below section entitled Science Proves Religion, it is demonstrated that the images we see in this physical world is not the source -- and is portrayed as a "blemish" which is created by the intersecting forces in what is described by the physicist as the (Ćtheric) Field.   Plato portrayed these objects that are seen with one's physical senses as shadow-images that are an illusion.   More importantly is to understand them as allusions -- meaning that what man sees are allegorical images that convey a symbol of their higher reality in the (Field) source.   Why can they be portrayed as allegorical?   Because the fullness of the twelve-dimensional source cannot be manifest in this three-dimensional realm (see The Truth Cannot Exist In The Natural World).   Thus, because of the inherent organic limitations of our physical senses, our brain can only interpret the holographic image as symbols of the higher reality of the whole.

As stated in the above (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life), in our True State of Higher Soul-Reality there is no such thing as a male of female Soul -- and at a Soul-Level of Reality, the Soul exists as a Being of Light that is the perfect balance of the male and female paradoxical opposites.  And it is this interaction of male and female opposites that generates the Light of the Soul (see The Evolving Soul).   And because all growth and development is the product of the paradoxical opposites that manifest the Mind, no growth and development can be brought about unless the opposite polarities of mind are able to interact and bring about the necessary process of expansion and deepening of Mind and Being.  And in the above quotation in the Gospel of Thomas above: "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" -- what we see is the interaction of the paradoxical opposites of the twelve spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life.  Thus, with respect to the paradoxical opposites of mind what is required is manifest in the words: "When you make the two one"  -- wherein, you must "make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside"  , which confirms the statement on the Delphic Oracle that "If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside" -- and the "above like the below", what you are doing is bringing together the (lower) earthly spheres of mind with the (upper) spiritual spheres of mind -- and lastly, "when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female", what you are doing is bringing the outer male and female columns of the Tree of Duality back into the Center in the Tree of Life.

In the February 1979 Psychology Today interview with brain scientist Karl Pribram, the world which he attempted to describe confirmed the vision witnessed by the ancient mystics and enlightened wise men -- and when their vision of man's reality is properly understood, confirmed the reality of the Bible that neither true believer nor staunch critic is even prepared to acknowledge and understand -- i.e., Pribram wrote: “It isn’t that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn’t that there aren’t objects out there, at one level of reality. It’s that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different reality, one that can explain things that have hitherto remained scientifically inexplicable: paranormal phenomena… synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events”   More recently, cyberneticist David Foster described “an intelligent universe” whose apparent concreteness is generated by cosmic data from an unknowable, organized source.   The reality of the holographic theory says that: “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.   The brain is a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe.”    While this is true, it does not address the problem as seen in the fact that our physical senses which are composed of earth-matter, can only perceive the frequencies that are of the earth.   And what both the Mystic and the modern physicist portray as the (Etheric) Field, is not only not of the earth in origin -- but like the tip of the iceberg, is far more vast than what the (physical) eyes of man can see and perceive.   Holographically, the physical brain interprets the redacted image of what is perceived, in an allegorical form -- which is why the Gospel account of Jesus portrays what organic man sees as being cast into the "outer darkness" (of mind and being) -- while Plato portrays what man sees as illusion and shadow-images which have been projected onto the wall of the Cave.

Einstein experienced shock when he first came into contact with the new reality of atomic physics, and wrote in his autobiography: “All my attempts to adapt the theoretical foundation of physics to this [new type of] knowledge failed completely. It was as if the ground had been pulled out from under one, with no firm foundation to be seen anywhere, upon which one could have built”.  In much the same fashion, the European physicist Niels Bohr stated that “…The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought to light the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, as a consequence, has shaken the foundation on which the customary interpretation of observation was based.”  The vast difference between what would be called the common knowledge of man, and the higher spiritual reality attested to by the mystic and visionary of man's distant past, has begun to be demonstrated by the modern scientific community.    Quoting physicist Walter Thirring in his book, Urbausteine der Materie where he wrote about matter that modern physics “...has put our thinking about the essence of matter in a different context.   It has taken our gaze from the visible - the particles - to the underlying entity, the field.   The presence of matter is merely a disturbance of the perfect state of the field at that place; something accidental, one could almost say, a ‘blemish’.   Accordingly, there are no simple laws describing the forces between elementary particles… Order and symmetry must be sought in the underlying field.”  

What this means is that what we see with our physical senses, is very much as portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave which portrays what we see as illusion -- because they are reflective shadow-images, and not the real source of the image.   But perhaps even more important is the statement 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 that what we imagine we see is affected by our own thinking, is demonstrated in 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).   Thus, we begin to contemplate the interrelatedness of mind and matter and the fact that the whole of our culture which is based totally upon a linear perception, is to the exclusion of what is observed and understood by the intuitive.     Thus, resulting in the fact that our linear-based culture has become an obstacle to the advancement of mankind.   @@@below segregrated mind.

Once again the Mystic has known that men not only see all things differently -- but also see only what they are programmed to see -- which is the basis of the words of the Apostle Peter as recorded by his disciple Clement in the Homilies where Peter makes the profound statement: “Therefore Simon, who is going to discuss in public with us tomorrow, is bold against the monarchy of God, wishing to produce many statements from these Scriptures, to the effect that there are many gods, and a certain one who is not He who made this world, but who is superior to Him; and, at the same time, he is going to offer many scriptural proofs. But we also can easily show many passages from them that He who made the world alone is God, and that there is none other besides Him. But if any one shall wish to speak otherwise, he also shall be able to produce proofs from them at his pleasure. For the Scriptures say all manner of things, that no one of those who inquire ungratefully may find the truth, but simply what he wishes to find...”.  

In the Homilies of Clement Peter is portrayed as meeting with Simon Magus -- wherein the above statement was made with respect to this meeting.   And what Peter states -- which has been now proven by physicists -- is that not only does each person see what they are predisposed to see -- but that their thoughts are able to alter the images that they see.   And unless you as seekers come to understand how any why this knowledge of our reality is true -- presented by Mystics and confirmed by modern physicists -- then it will remain impossible for you to escape the illusions of Plato's Cave which the Gospels portray as the "outer darkness", and come to Know Thyself.   

What is Peter stating in the above?   That what each person sees when they open the scriptures, is only what they have been predisposed to see -- which is often totally different than what the next person is predisposed to see.  And not only has this reality of consciousness caused the creation of countless sectarian opinions that are often in conflict with one another -- but also the many opinions and philosophies of life that is taught in our learning institutions, as well as our cultures and societies.   And the fact that mankind perpetually argues and even goes to war over these conflicting opinions and philosophies, is all founded upon his own Self-Ignorance -- which Self-Ignorance is founded upon his ignorance pertaining to the reality of Mind and Consciousness, and his Profound Ignorance of the Natural Laws of Creation.    

  The Tower Of Babel Syndrome: In the below there is an expanded portrayal of The Holographic Enigma Of The Tower Of Babel.   For our focus here let me state that it will be impossible to achieve a condition of Higher Consciousness -- much less fulfill the adage to Know Thyself -- without first understanding why the allegory of the Tower of Babel portrays everyone as being confused by virtue of their speaking a different language.   And in this respect a most important Gospel teaching which portrays the reality of man has been preserved in the 90th chapter of the Gospel of the Nazirenes where the question is posed: "Again the twelve were gathered together in the circle of palm trees, and one of them even Thomas asked the others, What is Truth? For the same things appear different to different minds, and even to the same mind at different times. What, then, is Truth?"   The questions raised here are of such immense importance, that it is imperative that we understand what is being asked: (1) The same thing appears different to different people; (2) and perhaps even more important is the reality that the same thing appears different to the same mind at different times.  

The account then goes on: "And as they were speaking Yeshua appeared in their midst and said, "Truth, one and absolute, is in God alone, for no man, neither any body of men, knows that which God alone knows, who is the All in All. To men is truth revealed, according to their capacity to understand and receive."   Thus, the question is raised: What constitutes each person's "...capacity to understand and receive"?   Especially in view of the fact that when rightly understood, each person is born imbued with the Tower of Babel Syndrome -- and  each sees from a different and often opposite and conflicting perspective. 

With respect to the above question posed by Thomas, Jesus states: "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."   Why does each person see the same truth from a different side?   What enables some to see more than others?  And why is the twelve multiplied by four?   In this play on numbers, the four is representative of the four lesser trinities that make up each of the twelve.   Which means that each of the four is comprised of a trinity.   Why?   Because the Divine Pattern of Creation is hologrpahically replicated into each of the parts that make it up (see The Holographic Divine Pattern).  And if the pattern is replicated down into the lowest denominator of human consciousness, this is the reality which the number 144,000 is derived (see The Holographic Enigma Of The Tower Of Babel).   

In the below section entitled Science - Religion - And the Etheric Field/Mind, astronomer James Jeans is quoted stating: “...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”.   And thus, the dilemma encountered is seen in the fact that because the Pattern and Cosmology of Mind that has been set before us in the image of the Universe is so enormous -- with each separate image existing as an aspect of the Great Mind -- that you are truly confronted by the inherent human problem of you can't "see the forest for the trees" -- which saying is defined as: "It means being so focused on one small part, that you miss the big picture. Being so focused on the trees, that you do not step back and see the big picture which is the forest."  Moreover, because we are virtually blind to the higher reality of the Field, we are therefore unable to see the connectedness of all that exists within the scope of our vision.    And if this were not enough, in not recognizing the Holographic Pattern of the Dualistic Paradoxical Reality of this world, it becomes virtually impossible to see beyond our own inherent carnal and fragmented limitations.   

With respect to the holographic Divine Pattern and the reality of the Macrocosm is replicated into the microcosm (see What Is A Holographic Pattern), what the Mystic, physicist and astronomer is making reference to, is the reality that each of us is as a single neuron in the Cosmic Mind of the Universe.   And in the same way that each of the neurons in our own mind is centered in a different area of the mind -- and functions and perceives from that unique section of the mind -- each person being a single neuron in the Cosmic Mind, perceives and understands uniquely from that point of perspective within the Great Mind.   Quoting from the Enigma Of The Segmented Mind:   

Holographically, 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).   At conception, each person begins their journey into life as a single-cell embryo -- i.e., a type of an amoeba with a greater potential.   But herein lies the problem: Since each person as a one cell embryo can only represent one single point of consciousness within the greater pattern of mind as portrayed in the Tree of Life -- then unless that person consciously intervenes in an endeavor to overcome their natural limitations, all that each person sees and perceives throughout their lives, is from the perspective of that single point of consciousness.   Since I have already demonstrated in the foregoing that many important original Gospel teachings were removed, let me set before the reader a quotation that has been preserved in what is known as The Gospel Of The Nazirenes where the great diversity of thought among men is explained in the words:  "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."  

As a single neuron in the Cosmic Mind of the Universe, we can't think and perceive from the Perspective of the Whole -- no more than the neurons and nerve endings that feel and control our left foot, can feel and control our right hand.   Different aspects of our mind receive stimulation and control different parts of our body.   That part of our brain which controls our left hand, does not control our taste, hearing or vision.   That part of our brain that controls the right foot, does not control speech.   Thus, different parts of the brain and mind are hardwired to different parts of the body -- and often perform functions that the others cannot.   What is true of us as the microcosm, is also true of each person as a neuron in the Cosmic Mind -- and the balance across the Cosmic Mind is controlled by the Laws which must maintain Wholeness.    Resulting in the fact that each person -- and groupings of people -- all perceive and understand the world from a different and often opposite conflicting perspective.   Why?   Because of the point within the Cosmic Mind that Nature has polarized them to.   

Jesus said that he who is Whole need not a physician -- which raises the question as to how one becomes Whole?   Because our own mind is imbued with the same Divine Pattern that is holographically imprinted into all of Creation, we possess the innate potential to begin to fulfill one of the objectives in the original Gospel teachings of Jesus and TheWay, through the process of expanding and raising up our own mind and consciousness (see The Heightening And Expansion Of Mind).   Part of the process of this expansion and raising up of one's consciousness beyond organic human limitations, is the process of Empathetic Triangulation.   And it is this innate ability of man that has been utilized in the process of raising up and awakening the self since the beginning of Time itself.    Socrates is quoted as stating that "The unexamined life is not worth living" -- but what exactly is being examined?   The whole of G.I. Gurdjieff's Fourth Way was based upon observing one's self.   And when properly understood, the teachings espoused in the Sermon on the Mount by Jesus, are representative of the process of observing of self in the endeavor to bring about one's own Anointing and Enlightenment.    And the key to comprehending the Sermon on the Mount from an enlightened perspective, is to understand the difference between judgment and discernment.  It is virtually impossible to use the process of empathetic triangulation, when one is judgmental of one's brothers and sisters.    And this is true regardless of whether we judge our brothers out of ignorance, or because of our own philosophical, sectarian or ideological persuasion.  

Mankind is portrayed in the Gospel as dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- which parallels the illusions of Plato's Cave.   And in the same way that each of us can be portrayed as a single neuron in the Cosmic Mind of the Universe, we are also as a single neuron in the mind of our own higher soul-self.   It is the position of many Mystics that Time is an illusion -- and must be understood as a dimension of consciousness that can be moved in.   And in the subheading The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man, I demonstrate that what we call Time is part of the illusions of this world.   And in this and the following chapters, I portray Time as part of the Soul Matrix of Mind wherein all the personalities which the soul has lived as, dwell in what can be portrayed as the Mansion of the Soul.   "The soul...", writes St. Teresa, is as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila) -- and each personality/soul-image which the soul has generated into a life in this realm, continues to exist within the higher reality of the soul, very much as a room within the mansion of the castle.   And what man calls Time, is merely the layout of the rooms within the construct of the castle of the soul -- which not only continue to exist within the mind of the soul, and by proxy, within the Mind of God -- and it is the totality of the evolution of the soul that represents the manifestation of the Light of the soul in it's natural state as a Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ).    And in coming to envision this higher soul-reality as portrayed by the Mystic St. Teresa as “a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” -- these rooms inhabited by each previously generated soul-image that failed to bring about the next stage of birth, exist in a kind of Matrix that is divided across that dimension of mind that man unknowingly calls Time.

It is important to understand the Gospel Sermon on the Mount Teachings -- and the fact that the inner holographic reality that is a microcosmic image of the outward holographic reality, is very much the Key to Wholeness through Empathetic Triangulation of the Reflected image we perceive in mankind as our brothers and sisters.   What this means is that in the same way we can be portrayed as a single neuron in the Cosmic Mind of the outer world which our physical self is an integral part of, we are in like manner a single neuron within the Mind of our Soul with respect to our Inner Being.   And what we see reflected back to us in the image of our brothers and sisters in the outer world, is very much an aspect of our inner reality of our soul-mind -- which can be portrayed as a Soul-Matrix which se are a single point (see Soul-Symphony - Time - Soul-Octaves - Spiritual Cathedral).    And when we judge -- rather than empathetically triangulate and discern the image reflected by our brothers and sisters in the outer world -- we in fact alienate ourselves from our own inner reality of higher mind and being.   And in this alienation brought about by our own judgments of our brothers and sisters, we inhibit and even flat-line our own growth and spiritual development.   And this is the reality of the Laws that are presented to seekers in the words of Jesus that when you judge your brothers and sisters, it is your own judgment that comes back upon you.   And that you bring judgment upon yourself is portrayed in the words: "But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire" (Matt 5:22).   That our own words come back upon us, is seen in the often ignored statement of Jesus: "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment" (Matt 12:36 KJV).
