There are two ways,

one of life and one of death,

but a great difference between the two ways

 

 The Bridge Between Religion And Science

 

The Conflict between religion and science can only be resolved when both begin to understand the Natural Laws of Creation.  In the vision of Nikola Testa, it is through the understanding of the Natural laws that the essence of religion can be restored, and the advancements of science will be supercharged.  Why? Each person sees the world differently -- and what each person sees, is directly in accord with their Condition of Mind.  Only through the understanding of the Natural Laws can the scientist begin to tap into the Higher Source of the Knowledge they seek.  And only those who have bridged the gulf between the physical and its non-physical source can move beyond the barrier and limitations of organic human consciousness. 

Who is more enlightened?  The scientist or the mystic?  The problem that confronts mankind in the twenty first century is that it is not one or the other -- and the vision of both the modern scientist and the mystics each have their truths that support the greater enlightened vision of man's higher reality.  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 [mystics] who have been sitting there for centuries.”  For clarification, I replaced Robert Jastrow's word theologians with the word mystics for clarification.  What is a mystic?  It is a person who is willing to seek beyond what he sees with his physical eyes, in order to gain a deeper understanding.  Therefore, the word portrays a person who develops the inward-looking attributes of mind in order to connect to and learn directly from the Divine Mind that many portray as God.  When the historical man Jesus stated that the Kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:20-21), this statement should have provoked the question: If the Kingdom of God is within me -- at the core and essence of my mind and consciousness -- then what is stopping and inhibiting me from entering the Kingdom and Knowing God?  The answer is: The vibratory frequency of your own mind that is monitored by the Natural Laws of Creation which has often be portrayed as The Laws of Nature and Nature's God.  

The mystic learns that testing points exist that are built into the Laws of Creation that must be satisfied, in order to move beyond the barrier that these Laws present to the seeker of higher truth and knowledge.   In the same way that we can't jump and land on a distant planet because of the restrictions imposed upon us by the Law of Gravity, the same reality is true with respect to our inward journey.  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: "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 in its orbit, Galileo experienced deceleration, helping it go into orbit around Jupiter. "

In understanding the Natural Laws, our scientist's timed their sequences where they initiated rocket burns to take advantage of the natural movement and gravitational pull of the planets.  This enabled them to take advantage of the Natural Forces to bring about the results which they envisioned.  And with respect to the universal dictum, "as above so below", the mystic learns that the inward journey is navigated in much the same manner.  When our Constitutional Framers cited 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 or frequency 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 then 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. 

Achieving this higher enlightened vision, understanding and knowledge, is the direct result of what the Quakers portrayed as a person's Condition -- which Condition is the result of the person's frequency and vibration of their body and mind -- which frequency and vibration is controlled by the Natural Laws working upon the person's consciousness.  Thus, the question from a spiritual perspective: Do you need to possess the esoteric knowledge of the Laws to fulfill the Gospel teachings?  In the Epistle of Peter to James it is stated that if the body of esoteric knowledge taught by Jesus to his closest disciples is lost or thrown away, that  "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".  Why?  Because the knowledge of the Laws provides the person with an advantage in confronting the obstacles of life as personified in the statement of the Apostles: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22).  With the esoteric knowledge of the Natural Laws, the person is able to understand the choices presented to them, the Causal-Factors that have initiated these choices, which enables them to understand the tribulations and the higher objectives of the life the person is living.  Which means that they are able to draw upon their intellectual strengths in the process of balancing and evolving the mind of the person into a state 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).  To bring about a condition of Wholeness requires a very high-level development of mind (see Achieving Wholeness Of Self http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AchievingWholeness ).     

There is a spiritual formula that opens the door to higher development of Mind and Spirit beyond what can be portrayed as organic human consciousness.   And without understanding the formula, no amount of schooling by academia, reading of scripture, meditation, or the study of religious teachings, will develop the mind beyond the organic limitations of man's physical mind.  Quoting from The Mental Barrier http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#MentalBarrier

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, while 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 Level 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 outer physical consciousness and the Source of his Mind and Being within him on the other side of the Natural Barrier of Mind and Consciousness.   The Formula for transcending the barrier that separates the person you are in this world and your inner True-Self is the understanding of the Law of Octaves and the "narrow gate" of the Mind.

Cause And Effect Of The Law Of Octaves

 

Consciousness requires Energy.  Higher Consciousness requires Oneness and Wholeness.  The Soul or True-Self of mankind dwells in a twelve-dimensional Realm where the polarities and the consciousness of the Soul can be portrayed as self-contained.  Because the energy and consciousness is self-contained with the polarities of Positive/Male and Negative/Female with what is Heavenly and Earthly joined together, the Soul is a Being of Light (see http://BeingOfLight.com ).  But because the Realm of Souls is an environment where opposite polarities are self-contained and exist in Oneness, the opposites cannot interact and evolve the Light of the Soul through experiential-knowledge -- and therefore no growth can be brought about.   Mankind is an expression of the Soul in this three-dimensional sub-realm where the polarities of male and female exist in separation -- wherein this sub-realm is portrayed as the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son -- which is parallel to the analogy of Plato's Cave (see http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#Cave ).   

In this sub-realm, bio-energy or vital life-force enters into the person's body/mind through their inner connection to their Higher Soul-Self (see http://SoulSelf.org ) -- the Soul-Self is a Being of White Light of pure Intellectual Consciousness (see http://BeingOfLight.com ).  In order for energy to exist and flow, there must be a positive/male pole that received the flow of energy from the source -- a negative/female pole that reflects the energy -- and balance point that utilizes the energy and manifests consciousness.  When understood, this flow of energy that manifests in the balance point is the basis of the Trinity that is portrayed as the Divine Pattern that is replicated into all of Creation.   In the Greek language, this Core Intelligence was known as the Logos or Mind/Word of God that is portrayed as the Son of God -- being the offspring of the Male/Father and Female/Mother Divine Polarities. 

In order to clarify the above let me present a quotation from The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is generally attacked by Jewish philosophers, but is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel.  It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief.   According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.   In the Zohar, the foundational doctrine of Jewish Mysticism, it is written that: “All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration; and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them… The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged.  But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”. 

Each Soul came into being as "sparks" of the Divine Mind.  In order for the Soul to achieve "reunion with God”, each Soul "must develop all the perfections"  that will permit them to be reunited to the Divine Mind.   The Soul has no sex, because it dwells in a higher twelve-dimensional reality where the polarities of male/positive and female/negative are At-One in their manifestation of the Soul-Consciousness which is a Being Of Light.  BUT, the Soul cannot grow and evolve in this twelve-dimensional Realm of Souls, because the polarities of male and female cannot interact in this higher Soul Environment because they exist in Oneness.   Thus, in the Alpha of Creation when each Soul came into being as a "spark" of the Divine Mind, ignorance prevailed because no experience that evolves the mind of the Soul existed.   Thus, in order to develop through the interaction of Opposites, each Soul had to incarnate into a three-dimensional form where a division of the polarities of male and female could interact and evolve through the experiences derived in the incarnation.  And this incarnation into a three-dimensional sub-realm that enabled polarities of the Soul to interact, is why it is stated above that "The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation”.          

The Consciousness of the Divine Pattern which is replicated into all of Creation, evolves through the interaction of opposites.  And in the same way that our body forms through the interaction and joining of the male/sperm and the female/ovum that form an embryo -- it is the interaction of the male and female within the embryo that forms the body.  Physical birth is brought about when the fetus is able to exist out of the mother's womb -- at which time the fetus emerges into the Mental-Womb of Mother Earth in what can be portrayed as a Cosmic Ovum/Woman or Sperm/Man.    BUT, 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.  

In the same way that Consciousness is built upon the interaction of the opposite positive/male and negative/female polarities of mind -- polarities which are divided in this sub-realm in order to grow and evolve through the experiences -- higher consciousness can only be achieved when the two polarities which are the manifestation of their gender-consciousness, are able to come together in Oneness and Wholeness on a higher plane.   In order to manifest Oneness, equal aspects must be joined together as in the pattern of the embryo.   Which means that there must be a means built into the Natural Laws to test the balance of the two opposites.  This means of testing the integrity and balance across the spectrum of opposites that must be checked and monitored, is call the Law of Octaves which will not permit the bio-energy to return to its source, unless Wholeness is achieved.  Therefore, the bio-energy of the thought or impression that lacks the necessary Wholeness, cannot bring about the development of Higher Mind and Consciousness -- but becomes lost into Nature.  

Deists proclaim an understanding of the Natural Laws, yet the vast majority of people who claim to be Deists, remain clueless as to the effect of the twisting of the Laws as manifest in the Law of Octaves.  And while few people possess any real understanding with respect to the Causal-Factors, if anyone wants to research the intricate why's and how's of the twisting factors of the Laws that keep mankind earth-bound in his thinking and life unless higher balance and wholeness is achieved, they can read at The Laws Of Nature And The Law Of Octaves (see BELOW).

While few people can grasp the Causal-Factors of why the path of progression that forms an octave twists, of greater importance is to understand the effect and result of the twisting of the progression of the Laws.  If a person understands the effect of the twisting of the Laws within their own consciousness, and they begin to address the problem, they will begin to experience the transformational process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening which will then enable them to begin to understand what they previously could not.  And from this perspective, it is therefore important to understand that every thought and impression that you have, is carried into your mind upon the foundation of the bio-energy and vital life-force that you generate -- and is then transported upon the mental positive and negative polarities of energy and consciousness.  In fact, this bio-energy is measured in EKG and EEG machines.  And the twisting of the Law of Octaves tests each thought to evaluate whether the thought can nourish and evolve the mind -- and whatever thought or impression fails to manifest the necessary wholeness to stimulate growth and development, the bio-energy is lost into nature.  Therefore, what is important to understand is the reality that those thoughts that feed the growth of the mind beyond what can be portrayed as organic human-animal consciousness, are able to maintain the necessary Wholeness to be drawn through the "narrow gate" at the Center of your Mind. 

As confirmed by the statement of Nikola Tesla, every thought and impression is carried into and through the mind on cognitive-energy that has a frequency and vibration.  Thoughts can be likened to a formula -- certain combination of mental-impressions bring about expansion and deepening of the mind -- while other impressions are simply expelled from the mind as waste in much the same manner as your body uses the food you eat that can nourish, and expels the waste.  The mind can only grow and evolve when nourished with thoughts and impressions that are Whole -- which can be defined as possessing all the pieces from all the segmented areas of mind coming together in balanced Oneness.  Man is as much a Spiritual being as an OPPOSITE Earthly -- divided across the OPPOSITE polarities of Male and Female -- and only when these OPPOSITES are brought together in Balanced Wholeness, can the Mind be nourished beyond organic natural levels of development and comprehension.   

What is called the Law of Octaves is the vibratory-frequency of the Natural Laws that tests every thought for Wholeness.  If the thought or impression is missing a segment, then the thought does not contain the necessary balance to spawn growth and development. The words "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- Christ meaning the Illumination, Enlightenment and Anointing of the Mind -- makes reference to the testing of the Law of Octaves that enables you to utilize the bio-energy for the development of the mind through the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  In the process of testing, the thoughts and impressions that are incomplete -- that do not possess all the pieces that bring together balanced oneness, cannot pass through the "narrow gate" of the mind.  These incomplete and unbalanced thoughts and impressions lack the necessary wholeness, cannot be used for the development of the mind, therefore can be classified as incomplete junk thoughts and impressions that are discarded and cast off into Nature. 

In a Reverse Osmosis system, only pure water can flow through the membrane of the system.  All impurities and pollutants are then washed away.  The Law of Octaves and the Narrow Gate function in a similar manner.  Only those impressions and thoughts that are Balanced and Whole -- and therefore are able to grow and evolve the mind and consciousness of the person -- are able to pass through the Narrow Gate and provide nourishment for the mind to stimulate the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening. In the same way that impurities cannot flow through the membrane of a Reverse Osmosis filter system, neither can impressions and thoughts that lack Balance and Wholeness pass through the Narrow Gate in the Center of the Mind.  And in the same way that the impurities in a Reverse Osmosis system are washed away, the thoughts and impressions that lack balanced and wholeness are blocked.  This discarded cognitive bio-energy that is expelled, is then utilized to maintain the organic systems of this world.  In the same way that the vegetable kingdom gives off oxygen that is then used to maintain the life of the organic systems of this world, mankind gives off bio-energy that feeds organic nature.  On the other hand, when a person's thoughts or impressions are balanced and whole, then the person is able to utilize that bio-energy and the thoughts to bring about the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening. 

Earth-Consciousness, which in the parable of the prodigal son is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- often worshipped as the gods of this world -- are dependent upon maintaining man's carnal-consciousness to feed off the expelled bio-energy.  The more that a person can utilize this bio-energy in the expansion of the mind, the less this energy is expelled into nature.  And when a person begins to develop mentally and spiritually, and draws other seekers to him, the group very quickly becomes as a disease to the Consciousness of the Earth -- and is then opposed and stamped out in the same manner that the body of a person fights an invading virus.  What is being portrayed is the plight of organic man in this world  who is very much as a "prisoner" in the analogy of Plato's Cave (see The Escape From Plato's Cave http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#Escape ).  Organic man is therefore as a slave to the consciousness or powers/gods of this world -- hunted down as a disease if he attempts to break the chains of his slave-condition. 

In the fourth century, the Spiritual Christians were hunted down and turned upon by the carnal Christians, because the Original Gospel teachings was very much as a disease to the Earth-Consciousness that is allegorically portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country.  In order to maintain control, spiritual groups were hunted down as heretics throughout the Middle Ages.  In our present time, those who support the Freedom and God-Given Individual Rights of the Constitution, are being opposed and silenced as heretics, because the tenets of the Constitution threatens the powers of Earth-Consciousness that is attempting to secure a One World Order which maintains control over the people.   Such Marxist nations such as China is striving to control the world though the use of religious/spiritual suppression that utilizes slave-labor to maintain the Earth-Consciousness at a carnal level of complacency.   This struggle with the Powers and Principalities of the Earth-Consciousness is portrayed in the words: "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places" (Eph 6:12).  When Jesus taught to turn the other cheek, what he was conveying was the need to release one's self from the people controlled by the powers of this world.  In the same way that the powers of this world work to inhibit all religions, even our science has grounded itself to earth-bound carnal thinking by virtue of its denial of this realm as a shadow-world (see The Findings Of The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#FindingsOfThePhysicist SEE ALSO The Mental-Shackles Of Faux-Science And Fallacious-Religion  http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#MentalShackles ).

The word Kosher means Fit -- and in the same way that the body is nourished by food that is fit, the same is true with respect to the thoughts and impressions that nourish the mind -- and are therefore fit or kosher.  Jesus taught: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matt 6:19-21).  When you, as the prodigal son, generate carnal worldly thoughts and impressions that lack balanced wholeness, the bio-energy is robbed from you when it is cast off into Nature.  Only when your thoughts and impressions are Kosher, Fit and Whole, are you  "...storing up for yourselves treasures in heaven" that is able to nourish and grow your Mind beyond organic levels of consciousness.   In the same way that a farmer understands that a crop must be fertilized and nourished with, so too must the mind be nourished with thoughts and impressions that stimulate growth.  The core meaning of the word holy is defined as: "There is a relationship between holy and whole, and the religious sense probably developed from keeping believers spiritually whole" -- and only thoughts and impressions that are Whole, can feed and nourish the mind of man.  Why is this important?  In the words of Jesus: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, ...I came not to call the righteous" (Mark 2:17).   Thus, the thoughts that are Whole and pass the test of the Law of Octaves, is as mental-nourishment that feeds and expands the mind beyond organic animal-level consciousness (see Animal-Soul http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#animal ) -- and the bio-energy of these thoughts and impressions are not lost into Nature. Being whole, they can be "…taken captive ...to Christ" and bring growth and development to the mind of the seeker.     

In the same way that there are people in this world who are starving and afflicted for a lack of nourishment, the vast majority of people are mentally starving because of the lack of thoughts and impressions that can nourish the mind through the necessary Wholeness.  In the parable of the prodigal son, this lack of nourishment is portrayed in the words: "...there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything..." (Luke 15:12-16).  Those people who are portrayed as dogs and swine cannot receive the Living Words that are Whole -- i.e., "Never give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls before swine. Otherwise, they will trample them with their feet and then turn around and attack you" (Mat 7:6).  Thus, the portrayal of people who can be likened to dogs and swine is representative of a mindset that cannot receive the higher knowledge that is Whole.

 

 

 

 

The Universal Source Of Knowledge

 

Accessing The Universal Source Of Knowledge: Once again we can use the words of the scientist to explain the mysteries of Creation.  What Nikola Tesla stated was that mankind has the ability to tap into a Universal Source that possesses all the Knowledge of all the Mysteries of Life and Creation.  And in the same way that Nikola Tesla correctly stated above 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 Source of Knowledge that he Intuitively recognizes.  Which is synonymous with the statement of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you...".   To recognize what is in your sight, you will have to observe with Wholeness of Mind and Vision.  And this lack of developed vision is again presented in saying 113 where it is stated: 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."  If it is true that the Kingdom which men seek lies before them and men do not see it, it is because organic man is carnal, and he has yet to develop the necessary Wholeness of Mind and Vision that can only manifest when the Body and Mind achieve the enlightened Frequency and Vibration that opens the Spiritual Eyes and Perception of the person.  

The answer to the equation of achieving an enlightened perceptive-understanding is found in the statement in the Gospel of Luke with respect to the opening of the mind of the disciples in order to enable them to understand the true spiritual meaning of the written text of the scriptures: "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).  Unless the believers spiritual eyes and understanding is opened, and enlightened by the Anointing of the Mind, they will remain unable to comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Kingdom of God.  This is is because a higher enlightened understanding can only be 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).   Therefore, unless the believer has set themselves apart from the spiritually disenfranchised thinking and mindset of this world, they will remain unable to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospels.  And in verification of this human reality, the second century Christian Bishop Valentinius quoted Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians when he made reference to Gnosis Kardias -- or, the enlightened eyes of the 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).   And that Paul wanted -- but could not -- speak about the Mystery and Spiritual meaning of the Gospel that remains beyond organic understanding to the Ephesians -- and could not because of their inherent human blindness that has victimized them since birth -- 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). 

When rightly understood, Einstein said the same thing 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."  The "intuitive mind" looks inward, whereas  the "linear-rational" mind that we utilize in our daily life, learns exclusively from outward sources as is the case either reading books, group learning or traditional academic educational systems.  Which confronts us with the problem created by external-linear systems of acquiring knowledge which was noted also noted by Einstein when he stated: “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”   Why would Einstein say that it was his education that interferes with his ability to learn?  Because the overdevelopment of the "linear-rational" spheres of mind in our traditional academia environments, has the effect of atrophing the development of the inward-looking Intuitive spheres of mind, thereby flat-lining the ability of the mind to evolve beyond the levels of natural organic consciousness.   Which in Nikola Tesla's terms, inhibits the mind of the person from vibrating at the frequency that enables them to begin to tap into the Universal Source which Gordanio Bruno noted when he states: "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."    

There exists two ultra-important opposing foundational paradigms of human consciousness which is based upon the premise: (1) Is an infant's mind empty -- i.e., a blank slate -- and in need of being filled with the wisdom and the knowledge of mankind?  (2) Or, is every infant an extension of an inner un-manifest source of Higher Mind and Consciousness that many portray as our True or Soul-Self -- and true learning and mental development can only be achieved by tapping into this Inner Source. 

How you answer these questions sets the framework for the whole of your thinking and search for what is True or False.   And based upon your conclusion with respect to your answer to these two paradigms of mind, you will either be incarcerated in a self-imposed prison; or, sustain at least the opportunity to advance beyond organic physical limitations. 

When the ancient wise men stated the importance of acquiring self-knowledge in order to fulfill the adage to Know Thyself -- i.e., their True-Self that cannot manifest in this three-dimensional realm -- they were making reference to the infant Mind-Full foundation of consciousness?   In like manner, when Jesus rejected the position of the Pharisees who were waiting for the Kingdom to be inaugurated upon the earth wherein he conveyed to them that they were wrong -- stating that "...the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21) -- indicates that only those who seek inwardly beyond the barrier of organic human consciousness, can find the Kingdom -- and in finding what is portrayed as the Inner Kingdom, one is able to discover all the important answers to the life we are presently living.  

 

Science has proven the wisdom of the Mystics (see The Findings Of The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#FindingsOfThePhysicist ).  They have proven that physical matter and all that exists in this realm, is being projected from a higher Spiritual Reality that is not seen or observed with man's physical eyes and senses.  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. 

The problem is seen in the fact that neither science or academia has the answer to the question: How does a person develop the ability to see into what science portrays as the Unseen Source-Field?  Unlike most people who remain blind to this Unseen Source, those who have walked the path of the Mystic have confirmed the statement of Nikola Tesla that man can begin to access this Universal Source, if he begins to change the Frequency and Vibration of their own Mind.  And this is accomplished one of two ways -- i.e., (1) the traditional way of the Mystic is to deny and lessen the influence of the lower earthly centers of the body by suppressing the appetites of man's lower physical nature; (2), or, by developing the lower earthly physical centers so that they merge with their opposite polarity/half in the upper spiritual centers, thereby manifesting what the Gospel account portray as 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).  

The outcome of both systems brings about a change in the frequency of consciousness that permits the person to begin to perceive and look into what modern Science portrays as the Unseen Source-Field.  With great wisdom and vision Einstein stated: "Only those who can see the invisible can do the impossible."  Paul conveyed the exact same message to the congregation of believers that Einstein stated in the above words:  "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor 4:18)  Thus, the rational mind that is not shackled by dogmatic ideology will pose the question: How can I see what Einstein portrays as the "invisible", and what Paul portrayed as "...the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal"?  The Answer: By changing and transforming what Nicola Tesla states is your "frequency and vibration" of mind.  Which is the whole purpose of the Original Gospel teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).   

In the time of Columbus, the vast majority of people believed that the earth was flat, and rejected the earth as a globe. When Columbus succeeded in his journey to the New World, many people did not believe him. BUT, the bottom line was that in that time-frame, if you wanted proof that the world is not flat, and if you sail to the west that you would encounter the New World, then you had to make the journey. Modern science has proven that Spirit exists, and it is the Source of all that exists in this shadow sub-realm. People such as myself and others have made the journey, 

 

 

 

The mind of the person is formed and built by the type of thinking the person embraces. 

Each thought rides upon the bio-energy or vital life-force of that person -- built upon the foundational consciousness that emerges out of that vibratory frequency stream of thinking upon which it is formed.  The thought begins riding upon the bio-energy of the person, and is then formed and constructed in accord with the person's mindset -- and is either acted upon or dismissed.  If it is dismissed, and the bio-energy is then lost into Nature, then the person is robbed of the opportunity of growth and development.  Thus, it is the foundation of a person's thinking that is critical to the success of the life they are living.  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.”  (Cyberneticist David Foster)

Why is this total departure from Darwinism that has fueled a modern revolution in scientific thinking important?  Because it confirms the reality that our perception and understanding of life is limited to  a "...mathematical construct [totally controlled by our own ability to]  interpre frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space.”  When it is understood that according to Pythagoras, the universe cannot exist without numbers -- and that numbers equate to energy, frequency and vibration, it is then understood why Pythagoras stated that mathematical numbers hold the meaning of life and existence. More specifically, we can then begin to comprehend why Pythagoras confirmed the findings of modern quantum physics and the reality that rational numbers which built the universe was sacred and unquestionable.

The foundational thinking of an Atheist is very different than a religious person.  The whole construct of their train of thought is built upon the premise that there is nothing metaphysical existing beyond this physical world.   Yet, if it is true that “…our brains mathematically construct hard reality by interpreting frequencies from a dimension transcending time and space" (Cyberneticist David Foster) -- that means that the foundational thinking of the Atheist renders them blind to the higher reality of mankind.   And what this means is that if God does exist -- and there is more than what mankind sees with their physical eyes and senses -- then their mindset and beliefs remain dead-ended and spiritually impotent.  But even more important is the fact that, based upon the person's foundational thinking, they can remain totally blind and incapable of comprehending the higher reality that another person is able to see and understand, based upon the frequency and vibration of their mental foundational thinking.   And even more important is the reality that secular governments built upon Marxism which regulates the thinking of the people, must be recognized as a detriment to the advancement of mankind.  In like manner, our present foundation of academia is built upon Darwinism, and is in denial of the reality of the Inner Source of Knowledge and Truth that wise men have attested to the existence of.  What this means is that our secular system of education is a detriment to the child's search for greater Truth and Knowledge. 

Oligrachic government -- whether they are secular or theocratic -- are designed to enslave and restrict the multitude in service of the few -- whether the few are clergy, kings or just secular leaders.  Pythagoras understood the higher spiritual reality that others were blind to, because he had the freedom to live and think in a foundational mindset that enabled him to advance beyond the rest of mankind -- supported by a community of disciples that were not regulated by either a secular of theocratic government.  In the Book of Acts the first thing the Apostles of Jesus did, was to create communities that lived the necessary thinking, mindset and lifestyle that enabled their eyes and perceptive-understanding to open to man's higher soul and spiritual reality.  Which would also demonstrate that it was the Constitutional mandate of individual God-Given Unalienable Rights that is the foundation of what is portrayed as American Exceptionalism, which is based upon the ability and freedom of the Natural Laws to develop the minds of the people beyond the levels of Consciousness of other forms of government.

When frequency and vibration is understood, the same cognitive restrictions that are true of a Marxist government, is also true of a Theocracy.  If you embrace error in the foundation of your religious beliefs, then no progress can be brought about until the defective foundation is rectified.  As an example: If you believe that Jesus is God-Incarnate, then the whole train of your thinking is built upon the premise that you are different than the historical man Jesus.  Which means that the statement of Jesus that, "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), has no real meaning.  If Jesus is God, then we are not his brothers.  If Jesus is God, then there is no truth to the statement of Jesus that "...'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'".  Which means that every thought and impression that is built upon the foundational mindset that Jesus is God, is adverse and totally different than the authors of the Gospels.  

The original followers of the historical man Jesus who walked and talked with him daily, all witnessed to the fact that Jesus was a true holy man who fulfilled the Royal Law of God -- i.e., 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).  Hence, when a person therefore "...thus fulfills the law, they are able to become Christs, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity."  (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).  And thus, by fulfilling the Law, the man Jesus was able to enter into a Coverture-Union with the Mind or Son of God -- i.e., Jesus was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366 SEE ALSO Coverture-Marriage (see Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).  These same followers and disciples were themselves Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and their minds were opened to the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures.  Of the people who listened to his teachings, Jesus stated: "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).  But to those few who walked and talked with him daily -- those who Jesus taught the higher reality of the Royal Law -- it is written: "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45).  Which is why Jesus said of them: “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).  

Why could the original followers and disciples of Jesus understand what was and is incomprehensible to man in his organic natural condition of mind?  Why was Jesus able to teach and instruct only the chosen few?  Because a believer had to follow -- and a follower had to pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, in order to walk through the inner door that Jesus opened unto them.   Therefore, because they abandoned the thinking and lifestyle of this world -- becoming what Jesus portrayed as the "good ground" that was fertile and teachable (see The Sower And The Seed http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ), these few had prepared themselves to follow and travail in TheWay.   And when it is acknowledged that if they fail to understand the teachings of the parable of the Sower and the Seed, that “Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13) -- meaning that if you fail to understand this basic foundational teachings of this single parable, that it will be impossible to understand all parables -- which failure to put this elementary teaching into practice, they would remain incapable of comprehending the mysteries of the Kingdom of God.  Therefore, it is through the opening of their mind, that their foundational thinking was conducive to a mindset that was spiritually fertile as portrayed as the "good ground".  And when it is understood that the ability to comprehend the scriptures and the Gospel teachings, was all conducive in accord with the "frequency and vibration" of their mind that was monitored by the Law -- only then is it understood why the original disciples of Jesus stated that he achieved all that he did by fulfilling the Law.  And that while Jesus could show them where the door was, as the prodigal sons, they had to follow and enter therein.

Jesus came to free their mind from the limitations of organic (carnal) thinking that enslaves all of mankind in this, the "outer darkness" of mind and being that is ruled over by the Citizen of the Far Country in the parable of the prodigal son.  What does the scriptures state: "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods '?" (John 10:34).   If Jesus confirmed the Law which declared that we are gods, then what is our true nature? When Justin Martyr, a first century Christian, quoted the 82nd chapter of Psalms from his scriptures, the sacred writings that he used did not read as ours does today. “God standeth in the congregation of gods”, Justin wrote, "I said, Ye are gods, and are all children of the Most High...” (Dialogue of Justin).   In addition to Justin, this verse is also found translated in this same manner in the works of Tertullian, Origen and Cyprian.  Thus, we have the witness of four of the earliest of Christians that “God standeth in the congregation of gods”, when the scriptures are speaking about us.  Justin then goes on to explain that all men were made like God, “free from suffering and death, provided that they kept His commandments, and were deemed deserving of the name of His sons, and yet they, becoming like Adam and Eve, work out death for themselves... thereby it is demonstrated that all men are deemed worthy of becoming ‘gods’, and of having power to become sons of the Highest; and shall be each by himself judged and condemned like Adam and Eve”.

Even our very own Bibles at one time more clearly taught this same concept. In the third century 1 John 3:2 read somewhat differently than it does in our present translations. Quoting from Origen’s Contra Celsum we read that “it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that when He shall appear, we shall be like God, and shall see Him as He is”.   With regard to our becoming like God, Origen then writes regarding Matthew 5:48 that “...the virtue of man and of God is identical. And therefore we are taught to become ‘perfect,’ as our Father in heaven is perfect”.

The great truth that has been continually expressed by both Jewish and Christian visionaries is that the knowledge of the mysteries of God and the Divine Plan begins with the knowledge of ourselves as the Prodigal Sons of our Heavenly Father. It is for this reason that the second-century Church Father Clement of Alexandria said that it is “…the greatest of all lessons to know one's self. For if one knows himself, he will know God; and knowing God, he will be made like God… and that man becomes God, since God so wills”.    In his treaties on The Soul and the Resurrection, St Gregory writes that “the Resurrection is no other thing than 'the re-constitution of our nature in its original form’”, and states that there will come a time “…when the complete whole of our race shall have been perfected from the first man to the last”.  This statement should provoke great thought in the reader who is under the misconception that our Heavenly Father would destroy or forever cut off one of his sons or daughters who are lost in this world.   If the whole of our race will one day be perfected from the first man to the last, then there are many grave misconceptions on the part of believers today.

Where the English translation of the scripture says: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matt 3:2), does repentance provide entrance into the Kingdom?  The meaning of the original Greek literally means to “change the mind”.  To phrase the thought that is being expressed, the true meaning is to “Open and unloose the mind, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand”.   This is truly important for the person of faith to come to terms with -- for it is the beginning of The Way.   When we begin to put these words into their proper context with respect to the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21), then we can see that the Gate of Eden which in the New Testament is portrayed as the "narrow gate", can only be entered by unloosing the mind from the anchor of the doctrines and thinking of men -- opening the mind to the inner reality of the Kingdom.  And in confirmation of the teaching that you are in control of entering the "kingdom within" -- and that you must open the "narrow gate" -- Peter told the people: ”looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Pet 3:12) -- which was confirmed by Jesus in the words: "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28).  This same statement is also confirmed in the words: "So also, when you see all these things, you will know that He is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away" (Matt 24:33-35).

With respect to when the Kingdom would come, Peter told the people: ”looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Pet 3:12).  Which provokes the question: How could the believers in that time-frame of the first-century, hasten or speed up the coming of the Kingdom, if it was coming externally in the outer world?  The believers to whome Peter was writing to with respect to their ability to speed up the coming of the Kingdom, fully understood what he was saying to them -- whereas, it is virtually impossible for the modern Christian to understand this crucial teaching.   Why?  Because their foundational mindset obstructs their entrance through the "narrow gate", because their foundational mindset has rendered them incapable of comprehending the instructions of the Gospel teachings.   Where they dogmatically believe that the door to the Kingdom will open unto them when they pass from this life, they fail to realize that if they don't enter the Kingdom while they are still in the body-vessel, that their entrance into the Kingdom will be slammed shut -- i.e., "Then one said to Him, Lord, are there few who are saved? And He said to them, Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open for us,' and He will answer and say to you, 'I do not know you, where you are from,' then you will  begin to say, 'We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.' But He will say, 'I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.' There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out. They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of God. And indeed there are last who will be first, and there are first who will be last" (Luke 13:23-30).      

 

 

 

 

The Plight Of The Prodigal Son: In the parable of the prodigal son, each person is personified as the offspring of their Heavenly Father who is wandering in this world which is portrayed as the Far Country or "outer darkness" of mind and being -- and by falling under the control of the Citizen of the Far Country -- i.e., the Consciousness of the earth -- each person must "come to their senses" and return to the Edenic Kingdom which they originally abandoned.  How is this return journey accomplished?  By fulfilling the Law of God within your own mind and being.  What does this mean?  By developing the mind by nourishing it with thoughts and impressions that are Whole. 

If you believe you are a follower of the historical man Jesus, there is one truly important reality that is ultra-important that you have not been told.  The original followers and disciples of Jesus who walked and talked with him daily --  who were themselves Anointed (Messiah/Christ) and achieved the subsequent stage non-physical birth that is allegorically as the Virgin Birth --  the very people who were the author's of the original Gospels, were known as Ebionites -- i.e., the "poor ones" -- and the Ebionites not only remain a people who modern Christians know absolutely nothing about -- but the authorities of the Church has condemned the original Ebionite followers of Jesus as heretics (see The Ebionite Heresy http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#TheEbioniteHeresy ).  Why have the original followers of Jesus who not only talked with him daily -- but were the only people who Jesus himself taught and answered their questions about every aspect of life -- the people of whom Jesus 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) -- while speaking in the enigma of parables to the multitude of people who remained carnal in their understanding as seen in the words: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34) -- the very people who even authored the original Gospels -- why have they been rejected as heretics?   Censored, because they stated that the man Jesus was a holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Law of God -- and was able to enter into a Coverture-Union with the Logos/Son of God/Mind of God/True Prophet (see Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).  But didn't Jesus confirm this fact when he stated: "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)?   

Did Jesus affirm this position with respect to his original Ebionite followers?  In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus is quoted as stating: "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-20). 

It remains impossible for modern believers to fulfill the Law that they have absolutely no understanding of.  And with respect to the statement that "...unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" -- Jesus portrayed the "scribes and Pharisees" as blind guides who led the people in the wrong direction -- which is the reason why Jesus portrayed them as "the devil's spawn" (see Christianity - The Devil's Spawn http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com ).  And the fact that other people had themselves fulfilled the Law and became Whole, is confirmed in the statement: : "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).   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. 

That the Ebionites -- like their Essene forerunners -- understood the allegorical nature of the written words of the Torah, is the reason why the early Church writer Epiphanius wrote that the Ebionites "..do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blaspheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   For them to be accused of "blaspheming most of the legislation", means that they did not at all observe the Torah outwardly in accordance with the letter of the written word in the manner of the Jews -- but rather, they understood the allegorical symbolism that was applicable to unlocking the inner door to the Kingdom (Luke 17:20-21).   With respect to the spiritual meaning of the Law, it should alarm modern Christians that in sone of the ancient biblical codex's is found a statement of Jesus that has also recently been confirmed in the newly discovered Gospel of Thomas in what is now known as the Nag Hammidi Library. In this codex the Gospel of Luke contains the verses: "On the same day, He (Jesus) beholding a man laboring on the Sabbath, said to him: Man if thou knowest what thou doest, blessed art thou; if however thou dost not know, cursed art thou and a transgressor of the law".  Thus, what is being stated?  If you know the spiritual meaning of the Sabbath -- then you are not held accountable for "blaspheming ...the legislation".  But if you don't know the spiritual meaning of the Sabbath, then you are "cursed ...and a transgressor of the law" So, with respect to the reason as to why the Ebionites continued to embrace the Torah and the Spiritual Observance of the Law?   Because the scriptures are the means to bring about the necessary expansion and deepening of mind by using the allegorical symbols as catalysts that can't be expressed literally, and have the capacity to develop the Intuitive spheres of mind which enabled them to gain access to their Inner Source of Knowledge that possesses the transformational power that enables the seeker to become Spiritual Israel (see The Purpose Of The Scriptures http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#PurposeOfTheScriptures ).      

When Jesus said with respect to fulfilling the Law that  "...For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-20), what does these words mean to the followers of Jesus?  The answer is found in the word "lawless" in the teaching of Jesus on the Law when he said: "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" (Matt 7:15-23).  The "lawless" person fails to bear fruit and fulfill the Law that Jesus taught was necessary to "...enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-20).  But based upon the dogma of Martin Luther, the modern Christians preach that the Law which Jesus taught had to be fulfilled, was "nailed to the cross" and is no longer in effect.   Thus, Protestant Christians have embraced the dogma of Martin Luther and rejected the words of Jesus when he warned: "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."   Thus, Evangelical Christians blindly follow the wolf-in-sheeps garb, Martin Luther, who taught that the Law is not in effect, because it was "nailed to the cross".  Which provokes the question: Doesn't this mean that Martin Luther was a "...ravenous wolf in sheep's clothing" that has rendered the modern believer incapable of fulfilling the Law and gaining entrance into the Kingdom? 

Martin Luther preached a doctrine of redemption -- perpetual redemption -- teaching that Christians should live comfortable in sin as seen in his words: "Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong, but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world.  We will commit sins while we are here, for this life is not a place where justice resides...  No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day." ('Let Your Sins Be Strong, from 'The Wittenberg Project;'  'The Wartburg Segment', translated by Erika Flores, from Martin Luther's Saemmtliche Schriften, Letter No. 99, 1 Aug. 1521).   Martin Luther even went as far in opposition to the teachings of Jesus and TheWay, as to condemn those who strove to live the Consecrated Life that the Gospel Ordained -- as seen in the words: "Those pious souls who do good to gain the Kingdom of Heaven not only will never succeed, but they must even be reckoned among the impious; and it is more important to guard them against good works than against sin."  (Wittenberg, VI, 160, quoted by O'Hare, in 'The Facts About Luther, TAN Books, 1987, p. 122).   Thus, there is simply very little that the modern Church holds in common with the original teachings of Jesus which was the path of spiritual transformation and Completion -- and the Command: "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" (2 Cor 6:17).

The dogma of Martin Luther has often been justified in the statement that the Law was nailed to the cross in the crucifixion of Jesus -- thereby absolving Christians from observing and following the Law.  But if we put this man-made dogma into its proper perspective, that would be the same as saying that because our elder brother Jesus achieved a University Degree, his Degree exempts everyone else from having to achieve the Degree that is the very purpose for our lives in this realm.  That would be the same thing as stating that because our brother achieved a Graduate Degree in Humanity, we can just hangout awaiting the end of the school year when we will receive a failing grade that will cause us to get left back.  And thus, because we failed to achieve the Graduate Degree of Life, we must repeat the same grade over -- and over -- and over again, until we achieve the Degree.

As the prodigal sons and daughters who dwell in the Far Country, all the Souls of mankind are in the process of evolving to Wholeness and Perfection -- i.e., "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt 5:48) -- 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.   What is the requirement for the prodigal sons and daughters to fulfill the Law and gain entrance to the Inner Kingdom?  For I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves, therefore, and be holy, because I am holy" (Lev 11:43-44).  "But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do, for it is written: Be holy, because I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15-16) 

Soul Perfection and Wholeness can only be achieved in the same way that Jesus did and taught, by fulfilling the Law of God within their own Mind and Being -- i.e., the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus explained that he "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ (Anointed) of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).   And 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 ).   Which means that what Jesus accomplished, is in fact the eventual destiny of all of mankind who are portrayed as the lost prodigal sons and daughters of their Heavenly Father.   And this is why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV).     That the historical Jesus was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Royal Law within himself, is attested to at Acts 2:22 where Jesus is portrayed as "a man, attested to you by God" -- and this was demonstrated by God performing "mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst".   If Jesus was himself God incarnate as believed by the later Romans, then these words portraying Jesus as a man approved by God through the works and wonders that God did through him, never would have been presented in this manner. And the reality that Jesus, the man, became the Anointed, and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God, is especially demonstrated in the words of Edward Gibbon with respect to the original position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus that he was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366). 

The Process Of Fulfilling The Law: How different modern Christians perceive what the scriptures actually convey is easily demonstrated by using our very own Bibles.   When Jesus said to the chief priests and the elders that the “…tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you” (Matt 21:31 RSV), such a statement simply has no place within the present day understanding of Christian doctrine.  Why?  Because we are without a means to explain Jesus' words, most Bible commentaries simply ignore the implications of this passage of scripture. One widely used commentary attempts to correct the text from a dogmatic perspective by changing the words to: “instead of” -- which would then make the meaning doctrinally correct and read: “The tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God instead of you”.   In this verse of scripture we are presented with one of the core reasons why the original followers of Jesus believed totally different than most Christians today -- and why it can be factually stated that modern Christian beliefs have virtually nothing in common with the Original Gospel teachings.  Therefore the question that must be posed is: When will the chief priests and elders enter into the kingdom? Modern Christian doctrine states that because of their disbelief and rejection of Christ, they will be cut off from the face of God, and perhaps even condemned to eternal judgment. And yet we cannot deny the fact that Jesus' own words convey the message that there will come a time when the chief priests and elders will also enter the Kingdom of God -- and it will be at a time after the tax collectors and harlots who believed, repented, picked up their own crosses and themselves fulfilled the Law in the manner that Jesus taught, and followed and travailed in TheWay -- and as prodigal sons who "came to their senses", they were able to return to the Edenic Kingdom.   While at a later period when those Souls who had lived as the chief priests and elders themselves "came to their senses" and fulfilled the Law, were also able to return to the Edenic Kingdom.   

With respect to fulfilling the Law, the question that we are presented with is how long must each of us who are the prodigal sons, travail in this, the Far Country, before we come to our senses and "turn about", and begin the journey in TheWay that returns us to the Edeninc Kingdom of Origination?    Jesus commanded those who would be his followers: "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ) -- i.e., "For many are called, but few are chosen" (Matt 22:14).    With respect to the word that translators commonly render "destruction", the true meaning in no manner represents what is actually being presented.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”   But once again it is impossible for the modern Christian to understand the reality presented in the previous Gospel statement.   And it is not until we come to understand the meaning of the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image) which was removed by the Church, can we even begin to understand what is being taught in these verses with respect to entering into the "narrow gate".   (84) Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"   What is being stated?   Saying 84 presents what is portrayed as YOUR LIKENESS, and YOUR IMAGES.   It does not say: When you see God -- and this is because you dwell within the reality of your own soul-self -- and it is your soul-self that is in the above portrayed as "your likeness" that dwells within God.   When rightly understood, we only dwell within God by proxy.    When the Schofield Reference Bible reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose” -- wherein, each Soul's previous failures are understood as that Soul's IMAGES which failed to "become manifest" -- much like the chief priests and elders who could not go into the kingdom of God with the “…tax collectors and the harlots", who followed in TheWay and fulfilled the Law as Jesus taught -- teaches the reality that each Soul which is portrayed as YOUR LIKENESS , will continue to generate incarnate personalities who are portrayed as YOUR IMAGES, until an IMAGE of the Soul-LIKENESS  does fulfill the Law and is able to return to the Edenic Kingdom.   And the fact that when a person passes from this life and comes into the presence their Soul-LIKENESS and see the previous IMAGES their Soul has generated, means that these past-life personalities continue to exist across the dimension of what we call TIME. 

What this means is that the modern Christian simply has no understanding of the higher reality of their own Soul-Self.  And this higher Soul-Reality confirms the statement of the mystic St. Teresa who wrote and explained 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).  Therefore each IMAGE-PERSONALITY that was generated by the Soul, continues to dwell in the Mansion of the Soul -- with each failure building and perfecting the Soul in what can be portrayed as that Soul's Spiritual DNA (see Spiritual DNA And The Allotment Of Talents To The Invited Guests http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SpiritualDNA AND Spiritual DNA And The Sower And The Seed http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SowerAndSeed ).

In not understanding the process of how the Soul evolves and fulfills the Law of God as Jesus taught and himself accomplished, the modern dogma of the Church actually inhibits the believer from making any substantial progress and fulfilling the objective and purpose of the Original Gospel Teachings as restored at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com .  Because the believer cannot do the works and accomplish what the Soul of Jesus did, the leaders and authorities of the Church create dogmatic excuses as to why the believer is not expected to fulfill the Law and spiritually arise to fulfill the Gospel requirements.    As a lost prodigal son or daughter, how many lifetimes travailing in this world will be required before you keep the Commandments, and begin the process of the transformation of your body-mind into the Final Temple?    How many lifetimes -- i.e., how many failed images of your higher soul-self will be generated into this world "...that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”, before you begin to overcome the Law within you, and begin to draw nearer and learn from the One Teacher that Jesus said to seek out (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher )?   How many lifetimes will you read the sacred word of the scriptures through the dogmatic filter of the doctrines of carnal men, before you embrace the words of Peter when he warned: "...therefore great care is to be taken, that when the law of God is read, it be not read according to the understanding of our own mind. For there are many sayings in the divine Scriptures which can be drawn to that sense which every one has preconceived for himself; and this ought not to be done. For you ought not to seek a foreign and extraneous sense, which you have brought from without". (see The Spiritual Disenfranchisement Of The Mind).  

 

The Seduction Of The Prodigal Son: One of the most important statements in the parable of the prodigal son that is both ignored and not not at all understood by the multitude of students of the Gospels, is the statement by the elder brother to the Father when the prodigal son made his way back to the Kingdom.  The parable portrays the Two Sons -- i.e., "“There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything..." (Luke 15:12-16).  And what is personified in these verses is the plight of all of mankind. 

The condition portrayed in the above is that of the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- i.e., in the Gospel of Matthew the term "outer darkness" is used three times in conjunction with those who did not seek truth and to walk in TheWay.   Thus, we must ask the question: Exactly what is the outer darkness that is portrayed in the Gospels?   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". Generally, the outer darkness is thought to be hell; however, many Christians associate the outer darkness more generally as a place of separation from God or from the metaphorical "wedding banquet" that Jesus is expected to have upon his Second Coming.  Quoting from Matt 22:1-14 : "...when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who didn't have on wedding clothing, and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here not wearing wedding clothing?' He was speechless. 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."

So long as you, the prodigal son/daughter, continues to be a prisoner of the Citizen of the Far Country, you will remain in the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- robbed of the memory of when you dwelt in the Kingdom of your Heavenly Father -- dwelling in a state of spiritual amnesia (see Spiritual Amnesia http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#SpiritualAmnesia ).  In order to restore your memory of your long and distant past, you must put on the "wedding garment" and come to The Call (see TheCall To The Wedding Banquette http://TheCall.Nazirene.org ). 

The term used in the Gospel with respect to those who are "outside", and those who are "In The House", is of primary importance to the seeker and believer in the Gospel teachings.  With regard to the spiritual term “house”, in reference to one who is said to be "in the house", Origen wrote in Contra Celsum: “I have not yet spoken of the observances of all that is written in the gospel, each one of which contains much doctrine difficult to be understood, not merely by the multitude, but even by certain of the more intelligent, including a very profound explanation of the parables, which Jesus delivered to ‘those without' while reserving the exhibition of their full meaning for those who have passed beyond the stage of exoteric teachings, and who came to him privately in the house. And when he comes to understand it, he will admire the reason why some are said to be without, and others in the house”.  In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter is quoted as stating:  “We remember that our Lord and teacher, as commanding, said to us, guard the mysteries for me, and the sons of my house. Wherefore also he explained to his disciples, privately, the mysteries of the kingdoms of the heavens.”

When the disciples who dwelled In The House, asked Jesus why he taught the multitude of people in the enigma of parables -- "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)  -- wherein, each person's interpretation and understanding was in accord with their own mindset and thinking -- Jesus replied to his disciples: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again, and it should be forgiven them" (Mark 4:11-12 ASV) -- and the term, "...lest haply they should turn again", is stated in reference to the Kingdom that can only be found within, and the presence of The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher therein.  As the lost prodigal son, unless you begin to "turn about" and become a child of the Kingdom (see Turn About And Become As a Child http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout ) -- and therein escape the ignorance of the "outer darkness" -- you will not be able to understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospels, and gain entrance into the Kingdom through the "narrow gate".  And with respect to the requirements of truly being "born again" and becoming a Child of the Kingdom, one of the most important Gospel teachings was removed by the Church (see The Missing Verse Removed From The Gospels http://BrotherOfYeshua.com/children.htm#TheMissingVerse ).  

 

But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’ (Luke 15:30). 
 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Breaking The Organic Intellectual Barrier: There is a Natural Barrier that limits and monitors the cognitive awareness, consciousness and intelligence of a person to insure the necessary development of mind that enables the person to evolve -- level upon level -- to perceptively understand the Knowledge of the Ultimate Truth of all Truths -- one step at a time.  "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17).  The hidden or Divine Manna is the Transformational Sacred Self-Knowledge that enables the person to Know their True-Source as the Divine Offspring of God.  But what this means is that because development is accomplished and monitored by the the Natural Laws, each level of our interaction with the Laws must be brought about level upon level.  When a person attempts to develop their mind upon a flawed foundation, the Natural Laws inhibit their upward advancement, and perpetually loop them back until the flawed foundation is corrected (see The Twisting of Law at the Third Interval http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Third ) -- and this looping back is the purpose of the Law of Octaves that tests our progress.  Why?  Because it is necessary to build on a foundation of mind that will permit the person to advance. 

Who are we? "Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods '?" (John 10:34). If Jesus confirmed the Law which declared that we are gods, then what is our true nature? When the first century Christian Justin Martyr quoted the 82nd chapter of Psalms from his scriptures, the sacred writings that he used did not read as ours does today. “God standeth in the congregation of gods”, Justin wrote, "I said, Ye are gods, and are all children of the Most High...” (Dialogue of Justin). In addition to Justin, this verse is also found translated in this same manner in the works of Tertullian, Origen and Cyprian. Thus, we have the witness of four of the earliest of Christians that “God standeth in the congregation of gods”, when the scriptures are speaking about man.  Justin then goes on to explain that all men were made like God, “free from suffering and death, provided that they kept His commandments, and were deemed deserving of the name of His sons, and yet they, becoming like Adam and Eve, work out death for themselves... thereby it is demonstrated that all men are deemed worthy of becoming ‘gods’, and of having power to become sons of the Highest; and shall be each by himself judged and condemned like Adam and Eve”.

Even our very own Bibles at one time more clearly taught this same concept. In the third century 1 John 3:2 read somewhat differently than it does in our present translations. Quoting from Origen’s Contra Celsum we read that “it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that when He shall appear, we shall be like God, and shall see Him as He is”. With regard to our becoming like God, Origen then writes regarding Matthew 5:48 that “...the virtue of man and of God is identical. And therefore we are taught to become ‘perfect,’ as our Father in heaven is perfect”. The great truth that has been continually expressed by both Jewish and Christian visionaries is that the knowledge of the mysteries of God and the Divine Plan begins with the knowledge of ourselves as the Prodigal Sons of our Heavenly Father. It is for this reason that the second-century Church Father Clement of Alexandria said that it is “…the greatest of all lessons to know one's self. For if one knows himself, he will know God; and knowing God, he will be made like God… and that man becomes God, since God so wills”. In his treaties on The Soul and the Resurrection, St Gregory writes that “the Resurrection is no other thing than 'the re-constitution of our nature in its original form’”, and states that there will come a time “…when the complete whole of our race shall have been perfected from the first man to the last”. This statement should provoke great thought in the reader who is under the misconception that our Heavenly Father would destroy or forever cut off one of his sons or daughters who are lost in this world. If the whole of our race will one day be perfected from the first man to the last, then there are many grave misconceptions on the part of believers today.

 

The original followers of the historical man Jesus who walked and talked with him daily, all witnessed to the fact that Jesus was a true holy man who fulfilled the Royal Law of God -- and by fulfilling the Law, the historical man Jesus was able to enter into a Coverture-Union with the Logos/Mind of God (a.k.a. Son of God -- see Coverture-Marriage - Was Jesus God? http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CovertureMarriage ).    The reality that Jesus, the man, became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and At-One with the Indwelling Logos/Son of God, is especially demonstrated in the words of Edward Gibbon with respect to the original position of the Ebionite Nazirene disciples of Jesus that Jesus was in “...supernatural union of a man and God... In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366).   It must be noted that the mother and family of Jesus were all Ebionites -- as was his brother Jacob who they call James, and was the first leader of the Church.   In the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Gibbon noted that the teachings of Jesus were “…embraced by great numbers of the Therapeutae, or Essinians…”, and wrote that: “Le Clerc (Hist. Ecclesiast p. 477, 535) seems to have collected from Eusebius, Jerome, Epiphanius, and other writers, all the principle circumstances that relate to the Nazarenes or Ebionites. The nature of their opinions soon divided them into a stricter and milder sect; and there is some reason to conjecture that the family of Jesus remained members, at least, of the latter and more moderate party”.   The Ebionites who were totally faithful to the Original Gospel teaching, understood that the Kingdom or Second Coming can only come within the mind and body of the seeker/disciple who lives the necessary Consecrated Life in in fulfillment of The Royal Law and TheWay.

You can search all of modern academia -- all the libraries of the world -- and consult all the scriptures -- and you will not find the formula of the Law of Octaves and the process of entering in through the "narrow gate" anywhere.  Why?  Because this essential knowledge of the Spiritual Meaning of the Law was thrown away by the Gentile Church.  When the body of the teachings of Jesus are rightly understood, there is a spiritual formula of Natural Law that opens the door to higher development of Mind and Spirit beyond what can be portrayed as organic human consciousness.   And without understanding the formula that is manifest in the Law of Octaves, no amount of schooling by academia, reading of scripture, meditation, or the study of religious teachings, will develop the mind of the person beyond the organic limitations of man's physical consciousness.   And this fact of human reality is noted in the Epistle of Peter to James where it is stated that if the body of esoteric knowledge taught by Jesus to his closest disciples was to become  lost or thrown away, that  "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".  Why? It should alarm modern Christians that in one of the ancient codexes is found a statement of Jesus that has also recently been confirmed in the newly discovered Gospel of Thomas in what is now known as the Nag Hammidi Library. In this codex the Gospel of Luke contains the verses: "On the same day, He (Jesus) beholding a man laboring on the Sabbath, said to him: Man if thou knowest what thou doest, blessed art thou; if however thou dost not know, cursed art thou and a transgressor of the law". And this verse is again found in the Gospel Of The Nazirenes: "And Jesus beheld a man working on the Sabbath, and He said to him, man, if you know what you are doing, you are blessed, for you are not breaking the law in the spirit; but if you don't know, you are accursed and a transgressor of the law."  What is meant by the words with respect to breaking the Law: "...if you know what you are doing, you are blessed".  

The original (Ebionite Nazirene) followers and disciples of Jesus were condemned as heretics by the Gentile Church, because they were portrayed as having continued to embrace The Law (see The Ebionite Heresy http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#TheEbioniteHeresy ).  Yet, the Ebionites were enlightened to the spiritual meaning of the Torah, and did not observe it outwardly in ritual and tradition in the manner of the Pharisees, which is the reason why the Church authority Epiphanius wrote that the Ebionites "do not accept Moses' Pentateuch in its entirety; certain sayings they reject... stating Christ has revealed this to me, and will blaspheme most of the legislation" (Panarion 30.18.7-9).   For them to be accused of "blaspheming most of the legislation",  means that they did not at all observe the Torah in accordance with the letter of the written word -- but rather, that in opening their minds to the spiritual meaning of the scriptures as stated in the words: "Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45)  -- they understood the allegorical symbolism that was applicable to unlocking the inner door through the "narrow gate" that provides entrance into the Kingdom.    And that this essential body of knowledge was thrown away by the gentile Church, is why it can be said of the Church that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".   

Christians claim that they are exempt from the Law -- and claim that the Law was "nailed to the cross" and is no longer in effect?  This statement is one of abject ignorance with respect to the spiritual meaning of the Law and how it must be fulfilled in order to enter into the "narrow gate" and into the Kingdom.  As stated in the words: "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:17-20).  The "scribes and Pharisees" who Jesus portrayed as "blind guides", see only the literal text of the written word, and they observe it outwardly in ritual and tradition -- there by throwing away the Key of Knowledge as condemned by Jesus: "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".  That the primary objective of the Gospels is to prepare and enable the seeker/disciple to enter the inner Kingdom through the "narrow gate", 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 by fulfilling the Royal Law.

  

The Path Of Ascension And Growth: In the allegorical scriptures, all mental and spiritual advancement is portrayed as the climbing and ascent up the proverbial Jacob's Ladder (see Jacob's Ladder http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#JacobsLadder ).  And in the same way that an actual ladder must have a built in sub-structure that enables the person the ability to climb and advance higher -- and this advancement up and through the Natural Laws is brought about by the Law of Octaves that checks and maintains all progress -- even from life to life.  And what is not understood at all, is the fact that the acquisition of Higher Spiritual Knowledge is not so much the process of learning -- but rather, of advancing up the steps or rungs of Jacob's Ladder.  In the same way that a toddler does not have to learn to be an adolescent -- and the natural transitioning enables the toddler to advance -- this is also true with respect to the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  Built into the transformative process is a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that provides a means of both monitoring each person's progress, as well as supplying them the mental and spiritual substance to advance up the rungs of soul-progression and the fulfilling of the Natural Laws of Creation.   

 

Every thought requires energy or vital life-force as a means to generate and move the aspect or frequency of consciousness through the portals of level upon level of progression -- a Living Organism that enables the bio-energy the OPPORTUNITY to evolve through the trials of completion.   When rightly understood, the bio-energy generated by the thoughts, bring about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening by spawning and nourishing the growth of the person's mind.  What is personified in the Gospels as the "narrow gate", is the check-point that receives the vital life-force of those thoughts which fulfill the process in the words: "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5).   Those thoughts that have taken on the necessary wholeness that permits them to be drawn through the "narrow gate" and can therefore nourish the development of the mind, initiate the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  In contradistinction, what Jesus portrayed when he warned that: "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) -- reference was being made to thoughts that lacked the necessary wholeness to bring about and nourish the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  

Mind and consciousness functions through a flow and presence of (electrical) bio-energy.    In order for an electrical flow to exist, there must be negative and positive polarities.  When you use an appliance, the appliance is plugged into a source of electrical energy (positive and negative) that come together separately and flow through the appliance.  Mind, or Consciousness, can be portrayed as the appliance that is utilizing the positive and negative energy flow to bring about and maintain Consciousness.    An EEG is a means to test electrical activity in the brain.  An EKG measures the electrical activity in the heart.  This electrical energy is a means of testing what can be portrayed as bio-energy or vital life-force upon which the consciousness of man is manifest.  Without this presence of bio-energy which is manifest in the interaction of positive/male and negative/female opposite polarities, Consciousness or Mind cannot exist.  And this is true of both man and Creator-God.  Therefore, electrical activity is the direct result of the flow and interaction of the Positive and Negative polarities.  No energy can exist or flow, without the positive and negative polarities.  A bird can sit on a power line -- a squirrel can run on a power line -- and so long as they don't contact the two polarities of power together, they will not be electrocuted.

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

What this means is that as the bio-energy evolves through the development of an impression or thought, it evolves through the frequencies of an octave.  If the impression or thought is the expression of Wholeness that brings together the separate spheres of mind, then Law of Octaves permits the impression or thought to enter in and through the "narrow gate" and nourish the development of the person's mind.  When rightly understood, the Law of Octaves can be defined as the Divine Spoon that nourishes mankind with the Sacred Knowledge of our True-Self -- not permitting the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality to deprive you of Life, by feeding you with the Divine Manna of the Kingdom of God.  What is the Law of Octaves?  It is the Natural Law of Creation that advances each Soul up the steps of Higher Consciousness.  Every time your ears hear a sound -- and especially music -- the Law of Octaves monitors, tests and manipulates what you hear.  Every time you see a color, what you see and don't see is manipulated and controlled by the Law of Octaves.  Every time you have a thought, your thinking is monitored and manipulated by the Law of Octaves.  Are you prepared to arise to the next level of advancement?  It is the Law of Octaves that evaluates whether you have achieved the necessary Wholeness on the level you are at, in order to enable you to advance to the next developmental-level.  When it was commanded in the Bible to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5), every thought is monitored and evaluated by the Law of Octaves which acts as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism.

The Eye Sees Only At the Level Of A Person's Comprehension: It is the Law of Octaves that blinds a person from seeing anything that is beyond their level of understanding -- and it is the Law of Octaves that has the capacity to open a person's mind to Higher Reality.  The Law of Octaves does this by turning every thought-frequency back to it's source.  If the Thought is imbued with Wholeness, it is able to bring about growth and development -- if the thought-frequency lacks the necessary Wholeness to pass through the "narrow gate" at the Center of the Mind, it is rejected and cannot bring about growth and development.   In the Jewish Mysticism book known as the Zohar, it is explained with respect to the written words of the scriptures: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak. The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not. The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.   In the words of Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”.   And this fact is confirmed by the Church Father Origen who wrote: “It is sufficient however, to represent in the style of a historic narrative what is intended to convey a secret meaning in the garb of history, that those who have the capacity may work out for themselves all that relates to the subject.”    Therefore, what appears to be an historical account, is not -- and it is nothing more than an allegorical cloak that conceals important sacred knowledge from those who -- because of their undeveloped and worldly mindset and thinking -- cannot utilize the wisdom of the minor mysteries that are embedded within the text of the written word of the scriptures.   

Is this fact made clear to those who read the scriptures?    Yes, but the ego of each person who thinks they know, causes them to ignore the many warnings that are presented to them.    As an example: When Paul warns the baptized and committed Christians at Corinth who he, himself, originally instructed, that they were yet too carnal in their understanding to comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel -- which spiritual meaning is often referred to as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God -- Paul conveyed to them the reality that they would judge and even condemn this higher reality of the Spirit as absolute "foolishness" -- i.e., “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14).    Thus, it is imperative to ask the question: What is the "natural man"?     The condition of mankind that Paul is making reference to, would just as well be portrayed as "organic" -- or, of the physical body.   The "natural man" , is the "organic" human being.

A man of true intellect would want to know why mankind in his organic condition, would reject what Paul calls the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of God as absolute utter "foolishness"???   To the degree that when Paul further writes that he was "..caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5) -- an intelligent man would immediately question as to why "...it is not lawful for a man to utter" what a Disciple who enters the Kingdom experiences?   What is so different in the Kingdom than what is here on earth?  In his Epistle to the Trallaus the first century elder Ignatius speaks of the Mysteries of the Gospel and the Kingdom, and writes: “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes.  Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them”.  Why, if Ignatius was to convey to the Christians who he was writing his epistle to, that if he was to reveal the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel, that it would "...strangle and inflict injury on you who are babes"

In the Homilies of his disciple Clement, the Apostle Peter portrays the scriptures as the "...books with the power to deceive" -- and those who fail to understand both the traditions of the authors, and the nature of these writings, from the perception of the original objectives which the scriptures were supposed to bring about, as people who hold "bad beliefs about God".   Further, it was stated by Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement that each person who does not apply the Key of Knowledge (see http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ), only sees in the scriptures what they are predisposed to see and believe -- i.e., Peter is quoted as stating:  “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...”.   What this means is that the scriptures are so designed to bring about that condition where each and every person is able to see and confirm their doctrines of belief which they are predisposed to look for in the written text.    And more important is the statement that those who attempt to read the scriptures from a differing mindset and objectives than the intended purpose of the original authors, will remain blind to "...the truth, but simply [see] what he wishes to find...” in the scriptures.

Few modern Christians are even aware of the historical dispute between Peter and Paul -- or why the original Ebionite Nazirenes opposed Paul -- or the fact that the Church is not at all following the religion of Jesus, but more so the tenets of Simon Magus and the religion of Mithraism.   Under the heading of Simon Magus in the 11th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica it states pertaining to the writings attributed to Clement, the disciple of Peter, in the Homilies: “…the common source of these documents may be as early as the 1st century, and must have consisted in a polemic against Paul, emanating from the Jewish side of Christianity. Paul being thus identified with Simon, it was argued that Simon's visit to Rome had no other basis than Paul's presence there, and, further, that the tradition of Peter's residence in Rome rests on the assumed necessity of his resisting the arch-enemy of Judaism there as elsewhere”.  (see Was Paul An Apostle Of Apostate http://Ebionite.com/Paul.htm ). 

To even begin to understand the Natural Laws -- and especially the Law of Octaves -- the person must understand why the Apostle Peter portrayed Paul as a power of the Left Hand of God.  An important missing part of the equation is found in the quotations of Peter that have been preserved in the Homilies of his disciple Clement.   To begin, we must understand how Peter portrayed the proverbial Simon Magus in the Clementine writings where the Apostle Peter explains that: "He [Paul] is a power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God..."   Peter then goes on and explains that Simon "...has been able to involve you in diseases; but by these very diseases, which have been permitted to come upon you by the good providence of God, you, seeking and finding him who is able to cure, have been compelled to submit to the will of God on the occasion of the cure of the body, and to think of believing, in order that in this way you may have your souls as well as your bodies in a healthy state." 

Why would God raise up the man who is called the Apostle Paul as a "...power of the left hand of God, and has authority to do harm to those who know not God"?  First it must be recognized that disease, strife, hardships and sufferings, all serve a higher purpose.  In referencing the Natural Laws that were put into effect in the beginning of the Alpha of Creation and what is portrayed as The Two Princes, Peter then explains: "For thus from the beginning was a law laid by God, the Creator of all things, on each of the two princes, him of the right hand and him of the left, that neither should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them. As, then, when you partook of meat offered to idols, you became servants to the prince of evil, in like manner, if you cease from these things, and flee for refuge to God through the good Prince of His right hand, honoring Him without sacrifices, by doing whatsoever He wills, know of a truth that not only will your bodies be healed, but your souls also will become healthy. For He only, destroying with His left hand, can quicken with His right; He only can both smite and raise the fallen." 

Jesus was sent "...only to the lost sheep of Israel" (Matt 15:24), because as a servant of the Right Hand, he was barred by the Laws from intervening in the lives of those who were under the dominion of the Prince of the Left Hand.   That Jesus was barred from giving the woman at the well the Living Waters, was because she was under the power and control of the Prince of the Left Hand (see http://Lilith.Nazirene.org#SexualImmorality ).  In like manner, without understanding the Power's of the Right and Left Hand, it is near impossible to understand the Gospel account of Jesus and the Syro-Phoenician woman.  Thus, it is written:  "For a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him, and she came and fell at His feet.  The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.  But Jesus said to her, Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs.  And she answered and said to Him, Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children's crumbs.  Then He said to her, For this saying go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.  And when she had come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter lying on the bed" (Mark 7:25-30).   Why did Jesus not immediately help her?   Why did he portray the woman as a dog?    What is the spiritual meaning of the children's bread which is served at the Table -- bread that cannot be eaten by those people portrayed as dogs?   And, the Laws which were instituted by God in the beginning, inhibited those on the Right Hand such as Jesus, from relieving the infirmities of those who sat down at the table on the Left -- people who Jesus portrayed as dwelling in the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- and even existing in a type of Prison (see The Prison).   And with respect to the Two Princes, again Peter explains: "But that this is so, has been said even by the law in the person of God: ‘I will kill, and, I will make alive; I will strike, and I will heal. For, in truth, He kills and makes alive. He kills through the left hand, that is, through the evil one, who has been so composed as to rejoice in afflicting the impious. And he saves and benefits through the right band, that is, through the good one, who has been made to rejoice in the good deeds and salvation of the righteous."  

Where Peter explains "...that neither [Prince} should have power over any one whom they might wish to benefit or to hurt, unless first he had sat down at the same table with them",  it must be understood that the food that one receives at the Table with the Prince of the Left or Right Hands, is the knowledge or nourishment that is the foundation of the thinking, mindset and resulting lifestyle that is lived out by the lost prodigal sons.   Where it states in the Revelation that "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (see The Three Causes Of Human Blindness http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#TheThreeCausesOfHumanBlindness - Rev 2:8-17), this "hidden manna" is the the Knowledge/Gnosis or the Divine Manna that can only be imparted to the seeker directly from the Indwelling Logos and True Prophet -- who is the ONLY TEACHER that Jesus commanded to seek out and learn from ( The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ). 

In the account of the Clementine Homilies, Peter warns his disciple Clement that Simon Magus has the ability to greatly deceive the Gentiles, because they fail to understand the vision of the authors in the composition of the scriptures -- and the traditions that the authors used to compose the scriptures (see  An Inconvenient Truth) -- and in not understanding this original vision and objectives of the authors, they will easily be seduced by Simon Magus because they hold what Peter portrays as bad and erroneous beliefs about God.   Thus, Peter warns that while the spiritual Jews will understand the deeper meaning -- both the carnal Jews and the Gentiles will be greatly deceived and states: “And with us, indeed, who have had handed down from our forefathers the worship of the God who made all things, and also the mystery of the books which are able to deceive, he will not prevail; but with those from amongst the Gentiles who have the polytheistic fancy bred in them, and who know not the falsehoods of the Scriptures, he will prevail much. And not only he; but if any other shall recount to those from among the Gentiles any vain, dreamlike, richly set out story against God, he will be believed, because from their childhood their minds are accustomed to take in things spoken against God. And few there shall be of them, as a few out of a multitude, who through ingenuousness shall not be willing so much as to hear an evil word against the God who made all things.   And to these alone from amongst the Gentiles it shall be vouchsafed to be saved. Let not any one of you, therefore, altogether complain of Simon, or of any one else; for nothing happens unjustly, since even the falsehoods of Scripture are with good reason presented for a test.”

The Test: When Jesus said to the man: "sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee" (John 5:14), the question must be asked: In this man's present life, what was the Causal-Factor or Initiating-Factor that would cause "...a worse thing come unto thee"?  Jesus also stated: That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof..." (Matt 12:36).  Did Jesus really mean these words that presented a reality whereby each thought and word that a person speaks, will be evaluated and appropriately responded to?  In the words of Jesus: "for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matt 12:37).  The the question: How will this justification or condemnation be measured and brought about?

The Answer - The Living Bio-Feedback Organism Of The Natural Law: The Natural Laws of Creation act as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that intimately monitors our every thought.  Why?  In the same way that a fetus is formed in the womb one level at a time in progression -- never skipping over one essential aspect of physical development to haphazardly develop body organs and systems that cannot yet be supported by the developing fetus -- this world can be thought of as a Mental-Womb that develops our mind one level at a time in the proper progression.  Jeremiah 31:33 states: "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts" -- Hebrews 8:10 confirms the statement: "I will put My laws in their minds and inscribe them on their hearts" -- and also at Hebrews 10:16 where it is stated: "I will put My laws in their hearts and inscribe them on their minds" -- but what does this mean?  It means that in a Mental-Womb, the Laws that are in each person's heart and mind are monitoring their progression of development through the process of intimately interacting as a bio-feedback organism that responds to the person's thoughts and actions to advance them level upon level at a time -- mental building block upon mental building block -- until the Mind is fully formed -- as stated in the words: "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)

In the same way that you cannot teach a student calculus prior to learning basic math, neither can the mind develop in a haphazard manner whereby it skips over essential levels of development.  When the Ovum in a woman is fertilized by the Sperm of the man, it is called a zygote -- and the zygote then begins to divide in the process of becoming an embryo, which continues to divide as it develops and differentiates—in humans eventually forming a fetus.  Thus, in their mental development, there are people who remain as a Sperm and Ovum -- others who have begun to progress and can be portrayed as Zygotes -- and as they further develop, they can then be seen as a Mental-Embryo.  All of these levels of the human development of the mind is portrayed in the Gospel teaching that is contained in the Second Epistle of Clement where this ultra-important teaching that was removed from the Gospels modern Christians use is quoted as stating: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.  The fact that it is stated by Clement that the Lord was asked when His Kingdom would come -- i.e., "...For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied" -- means that the whole body of believers who are awaiting the Coming of the Kingdom in the outer world, represents a total rejection of what Jesus actually taught.  Further, if the conditions that must be met for the Kingdom to come is in the answer of Jesus to the question -- i.e., "When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female” -- then the whole of the Christian world has been willfully led astray by its clergy and religious authorities.    


 The Cosmology Of Mind - The Law Of Octaves And The Narrow Gate: In order to understand the process of entering in at the "narrow gate" as taught in the Gospels -- i.e., "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) -- it is necessary to understand the Law of Octaves as the Living Bio-Feedback Organism that tests our every Impression and Thought for 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).  

At our Core-Essence of our Consciousness, our Soul or True-Self is a Being of Light (see http://SoulSelf.org ).  The Divine Pattern which is holographically replicated into all of Creation, means that as the Soul is expressed outwardly in the next level of Consciousness, the Soul exists at a threefold level, and is comprised of the separated Male/Female Polarities and the Third-Force Balance or Offspring.  At the next level of expression, the Male or Heavenly Polarity is expressed in the three upper Spiritual Centers/Chakras, while the Female or Earthly Polarity is expressed in the three lower Spiritual Centers/Chakras -- with the third-force balance continuing as the Heart Spiritual Center/Chakra.  The Bio-Energy or Vital Life-Force then moves out to the level of Mind which is the pattern of the Twelve-Spheres of the Tree of Life (see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#foundation ) -- wherein the Soul is Evolved through the interaction of the Opposite Polarities of both Male and Female in the Tree of Duality, and the Upper Heavenly and Lower Earthly Kingdoms -- all of which can only be brought through the Center "narrow gate" when the Impressions and Thoughts generated by the Mind is drawn through the Center and into the "narrow gate" where the Vital Life-Force can then bring about the transformative alchemical process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  Without achieving the necessary Wholeness in the generated Thoughts and Impressions, the bio-energy is rejected by the Law of Octaves, and is lost out into Nature.  

The image of the Star of David placed over the Mind as patterned in the diagram of the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life, placed over the physical body of man, is the Fulfillment of the Law of Octaves wherein the duality of the upper three spiritual centers is resolved in the triangular-point at the bottom, and the duality of the upper three centers is resolved in the triangular-point at the top -- which enables the vital life-force that carries the consciousness of the person through the "narrow gate" in the Center which permits the bio-energy to bring about the transformative alchemical process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.           

The Formula For Wholeness And The Narrow Gate: Jesus taught that the Kingdom can never come upon the earth, because it is within your own mind and being (Luke 17:20-21).  But what does that mean?  It means that if you were to move beyond the superficial human level of organic consciousness of your present ego-driven personality, that God dwells within you at the Core of your Mind and Being -- in the Kingdom where all the hierarchy of angels and heavenly hosts dwell at deeper levels of Consciousness than is manifest in your physical or ego-self.  And what this also means is that beneath our organic earthly consciousness, lies deeper levels of consciousness that is beyond organic man's level of comprehension.  Which also means the Self that is portrayed in the adage to Know Thyself, exists beneath your organic level of human consciousness -- existing at deeper levels of Self that carnal man knows nothing about.  And what this fact ultimately means is that each person has a pre-existent Soul or Soul-Self that our worldly personality is an expression of, and is our True-Self.  We hear the terms ego-self, earthly-self, false-self, carnal-self and lower-self used in conjunction with the mind of man -- and if this is true, then what is our True-Self?   It is the Self that is portrayed in the adage to Know Thyself.  In the Gospel of Thomas Jesus states: "(3) Jesus said ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   Thus, the organic person you are in this world dwells in a state of intellectual poverty because of our lack of self-knowledge that is plagued by our own division of mind and being. 

If you were going to take a journey, you would consult a map that you would use for direction.  What is known as the Tree of Life, is the blueprint of the Twelve Spheres of Mind that is patterned in the image at the right -- and is the embodiment of the Trinitarian Divine Pattern that is holographically replicated into all of Creation (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).  The twelve astrological symbols, the twelve tribes of Israel, as well as the twelve disciples of Jesus, are all allegorical symbols of the blueprint of the mind of man -- presenting in symbolism the level of consciousness of the Twelve.  The Nag Hammadi Library of Christian scriptures was buried and preserved when the Roman Emperor Constantine took control the the Church and further corrupted the scriptures (see Can I Get An Original Pure Copy Of The Scriptures http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#PureCopyOfScriptures ). And the above teaching of Jesus on the Coming of the Kingdom has been preserved in the Gospel of Thomas which states: "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."   Why do I portray the version in the Gospel of Thomas as better than the Epistle of Clement?  Because it better portrays the opposite polarities of Male and Female Opposites coming together in the Heavenly/Above, the Earthly/Below, the Inner/Source/Self with the Outer/Self, being brought together by the Male and Female Polarities of the Tree of Duality, which is the outer columns of the Mind as patterned in the twelve-spheres of the Tree of Life.   But, on one level, an even more important version has been 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" (see http://Gospel.Nazirene.org/gospel_seven.htm#chapter69 ).   Why is this version of the same saying even important?  Because it correctly portrays the evaluation of the Laws or Law of Octaves in the Center of the mental-equation (see The Octave Test Through The Narrow Gate http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#OctaveTestNarrowGate ).   

When Jesus taught 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) -- reference was being made to the need for Wholeness of Thought and Mind that would pass through the Bio-Feedback Organism of the Law of Octaves that monitors and evolves the mind "...precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little" (Isa 28:9-10).  The great diversity of the mind of man is achieved by his ability to perceive and understand from different and opposite perspectives.  To achieve this great diversity of vision and perceptive-understanding, the Mind is comprised and made up of four Trinities -- each in accord with the Divine Pattern of Male/Linear and Female/Intuitive Opposites which are balanced by the Third-Force (Offspring) that merges the duality of the two positive/negative opposites into One.  With respect to the "narrow gate" in the Heart-Center, only what is Whole can enter therein.  

The Duality of the Heavenly and the Earthly is comprised of the Three Spiritual Centers in the Head which are the Heavenly Centers.  The Three Spiritual Centers in the lower abdomen are the Earthly Centers, and are an opposite polarity -- which are the opposite half of the upper Spiritual Centers.  The Upper Heavenly and the Lower Earthly OPPOSITES, can only be brought together by the Male and Female opposite columns of the Tree of Duality, which is the outer columns of the Tree of Life.   Where the copy of the above teachings in the Gospel of the Nazirenes makes reference to the bio-energy "...entering into the center and passing into the spirit", this CENTER that is being referenced is the entrance to the "narrow gate" wherein the energy-consciousness that is drawn from the Spiritual Centers, is balanced and made Whole through the Twelve Spheres of Mind -- and can bring nourishment to the Mind as the vital life-force is drawn into the Heart Center as portrayed in the image at the Right -- and being Balanced and Whole, is able to feed and nourish the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  What this means is that those Impressions and Thoughts that lack Wholeness and Balance, are diverted out the Male or Female outer columns of the Tree of Duality, and lost into Nature.  And this is why these unbalanced (male or female) impressions are portrayed as the "forbidden fruit" that brings death to the eater thereof.  In order to grow and develop the mind through the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening, the Thoughts or Impressions must be Whole and Balanced so they can pass through the "narrow gate" in the Center, without being diverted off into Nature and lost in this world.  If the Thought or Impression is too worldly, the vital life-force that empowers the the Thought or Impression cannot be drawn into the Center through the "narrow gate" -- wherein the balanced vital life-force is able to expand and grow the mind of the person. 

The Cross You Must Bear To Your Own Crucifixion:  Can you understand the meaning of the Cross from the perspective of the Crucifix?  What do you see?  Jesus hanging on a cross.  Which provokes the question: How do you pick up your own cross DAILY, and travail in TheWay, as Jesus commanded -- i.e., "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23).  Jesus did not say that you must believe that he was crucified.  What Jesus is stating is that you must "come after [him]" by taking up [your own] cross daily", and with your own cross you must bring about and submit to your own crucifixion.  But what does this entail?  Belief in the cross as an event in the life of the historical man Jesus, does not in any manner equate to taking up your own cross and carrying it to your own crucifixion.  Thus, while our knowledge of the cross that each person must carry is crucial, few Christians possess the in-depth knowledge to understand the symbolism and meaning -- especially when they rely upon the historical image of the crucifix that portrays the Cross in an historical context that is relevant only to the historical man Jesus.

No other words have been more misunderstood than what is personified in the deeper meaning the Cross than the critical concepts of crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension.  Let us just say they are so loaded with heavy dogmatic baggage, that their actual spiritual meaning is hopelessly lost when it is realized that the words apply to each and every person in human existence.  While crucifixion obviously refers to an old method of executing people by hanging their bodies’ up on a cross and letting them die. If we believe that is the meaning of crucifixion when used in the scriptures, then it prevents us from understanding that it can have many other meanings pertaining to the nature of life and how the lost prodigal son gains freedom from the Citizen of this, the Far Country, in his quest to return to the Edenic Kingdom.

  

The Universal Mystery Of The Symbol Of The Cross: In the approximate year of 178 of our Common Era, Celsus, the Epicurean Philosopher and opponent of Christianity published a rather embarrassing work in opposition to Christianity known as The True Word or Discourse. It is said that this work was widely published and used by the Pagan world as an attack on the Church.  Seventy years after its publication, The True Word was still so widely circulated, that the Church Father Origen was commissioned by St. Ambrosius to refute this attack by Celsus. This publication and the reply by the Church Father Origen is so important to modern-day Christians who are attempting to bypass the corruption of the Church by a series of Roman emperors beginning in the fourth century, that is should be a starting place for all sincere seekers of Truth and TheWay.  Who was Origen?  Origen is called “…the most prominent of all the church fathers” (Encyclopedia. Britannica), and was considered by Jerome to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the Apostles.” St. Gregory of Nyssa called him “the prince of Christian learning in the Third Century.” In his Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament, by Dr. F. H. Scrivener, one of the ablest of modern-day biblical scholars and critics writes of Origen: “Origen is the most celebrated biblical critic of antiquity. His is the highest name among the critics and expositors of the early Church. He is perpetually engaged in the discussion of various readings of the New Testament, and employs language, in describing the then existing state of the text, which would be deemed strong if applied even to its present condition, after the changes which sixteen more centuries must needs have produced… Seldom have such warmth of fancy and so bold a grasp of mind been united with the lifelong, patient industry which procured for this famous man the honorable appellation of Adamantius.” The biblical scholar Wescott says of the Church Father Origen that: “We have not yet made good the positions which he marked out as belonging to the domain of Christian philosophy” (Religious Thought In the West, p. 252).

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

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

What is the mystery of the resurrection that is not understood by the multitude of Christian believers?  To answer this question, you must understand why there exists a body of Christian esoteric teachings that "were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears".  And to even begin to answer these questions, you must first understand why Paul wrote that it was not lawful to reveal the deeper spiritual knowledge to the body of faith-based believers -- i.e., Paul wrote that he was "..caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter" (2 Cor 12:4-5).  And why in his Epistle to the Trallaus the first century elder Ignatius speaks of the Mysteries of the Gospel and the Kingdom, and writes: “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes.  Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them”.  Why, if Ignatius was to convey to the Christians who he was writing his epistle to, that if he was to reveal the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel, that it would "...strangle and inflict injury on you who are babes"

In total acknowledgement of this body of esoteric knowledge and teachings that could not be revealed to the multitude of believers, the Apostle Peter writes in the Epistle of Peter to James that if this body of esoteric teachings of Jesus was to become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".  And when rightly understood, it is this loss of the esoteric body of teachings because of secular fiat, wherein a series of Roman Emperors declared the body of esoteric teachings of Jesus to be heresy, that has spiritually disenfranchised the Christian world today. 

What is Origen saying?  Few people will relate Origen's portrayal of the mystery of the resurrection, while also making note of the secret teachings of Pythagoras.  Why, in Origen's explanation, was the mystery of the resurrection relevant to the esoteric teachings of Pythagoras -- of which it was noted that these teachings "...were taught in secret those doctrines which were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears"?  Is there a relationship between the mystery of the resurrection and the teachings of Pythagoras that could not be comprehended by  "...profane and insufficiently prepared ears"?  And even more important is the question: What is the mystery of the resurrection that is not understood by the majority of immature believers?  In explanation, the doctrine of the physical resurrection of the body, says Origen, is misunderstood by the spiritually immature believers, and writes that the doctrines of the crucifixion and the physical resurrection was “preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”. Why?  Because both the crucifixion and the resurrection are representative of allegorical spiritual events that have to do with the process of achieving Wholeness and the Spiritual Rebirth of the seeker/disciple -- 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).  Therefore, if it is true that those who are portrayed by Jesus as "righteous" had achieved "wholeness" apart from belief in the historical crucifixion and the resurrection -- and the mystery of the resurrection has a commonality with the secret teachings of Pythagoras that could not be comprehended by  "...profane and insufficiently prepared ears" -- then we must totally re-evaluate our understanding of the crucifixion and the resurrection in our quest for Truth and TheWay.   

Jesus commanded his followers to enter in at the "narrow gate" that provides the followers of the Gospel teachings the entrance into the Kingdom -- i.e., "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matt 7:13-14 -- see above The Octaves And The Fulfilling Of The Law http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#OctavesFulfillingLaw ) .  Which provokes the questions?  (1) But where is the entrance to the Narrow Gate? And (2) how does the follower of these teachings enter therein?  The fact of the matter is that there is no entrance to the Narrow Gate in the outer world.  And when it is recognized that the Kingdom is within us -- and therefore so too is the entrance to the Narrow Gate -- the answer to the dilemma is  found in The Cross.  And therein lies the problem -- i.e., so long as the Cross is perceived literally/historically in the manner of the crucifix, then it will remain impossible for the believer to embrace the spiritual meaning of the Cross with any degree of Wholeness and understanding -- i.e., “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2).  Why was the baptized Christians who Paul taught only capable of being nourished by what can be portrayed as spiritual Pablum designed for immature minds -- i.e., the equivalent of regurgitated bird puke that is portrayed as the "milk" of the Gospel?  "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).  Which means that those Christians who see the crucifixion only an actual historical event, as "...the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”, were unable to comprehend the spiritual meaning.   And even more important is the fact that what Paul was stating is that it was not a matter of teaching or instruction -- but rather, of the "natural" mind of man evolving beyond man's organic limitations, that would raise the immature believer up to a level of higher spiritual maturity where they could then BEGIN to understand the meaning of the allegorical symbols used in the Gospels.  It was the matter of the Christian of the simple faith evolving beyond what could be portrayed as "bird puke/regurgitation", in relation to the "solid food" that could only be consumed by the mature mind.  And this is why the Church Father Origen who was portrayed as the greatest teacher second only to the Apostles stated of the physical resurrection that it was preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (see Contra Celsum).   Why?   Because of their untransformed carnal condition of mind and being, this allegorical portrayal of the Final Stage of Birth was all that the faith-based believers were capable of comprehending.

When Jesus said: "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3) -- he was portraying the final stage of birth that is presented in the deeper meaning of the Resurrection and the Cross that all his followers must bear in their lives.  But when believers of the simple-faith interpret this as the crucifix of Jesus, without understanding what the Church Father Origen portrayed as "..the mystery of the Resurrection, [which is} not being understood, by those who "...were not deemed fit to be communicated to the profane and insufficiently prepared ears",  then it remains impossible for these faith-based believers who have been denied and inhibited from understanding the "mystery of the Resurrection", to fulfill the requirement set forth in the commandment to "...take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23).     

At the time of Jesus, the cross was a universal symbol that was used by many religions, as portrayed in the book that documents The Sixteen (16) Crucified Saviors (Click On Image).   Which provokes the question: Why was the cross a universal symbol that was recognized by many religious paths?  It is therefore important to recognize that the usage of the cross by these other religious paths which preceded the Gospel accounts, was certainly not used in an observance that had anything to do with the historical man Jesus.  Why, therefore, was a cross used by these other religions?  Because the cross itself is a universal symbol -- and enlightened mystics who composed these sacred writings by presenting them in the Universal Language of the Soul, utilized the symbolism that all of Creation is composed in.  Why?  Because all of mankind must be prepared to bear their own Cross and initiate their own Crucifixion  -- while they are still in their physical body -- in order to enter into The Higher Spiritual Life.  And thus, the statement of Origen with respect to the cross and these other religions: "Moreover, all the mysteries that are celebrated everywhere throughout Greece and the barbarous countries, although held in secret, have no discredit thrown upon them, so that it is in vain he endeavors to calumniate the secret doctrines of Christianity, seeing that he does not correctly understand its nature”.  And therein lies the problem as seen in the fact that the Cross is not an historical symbol -- but rather, it is the universal symbol of crucifixion that is observed by all the religions, that is not at all understood by the modern Christians.   Therefore, if you want to understand this universal symbol -- and comprehend how it must be applied to your own life -- then you must begin to look beyond the doctrines of the Church that attempts to interpret the Gospels historically -- while suppressing the spiritual meaning.  

When Jesus said: They that are whole have no need of the physician" (Mark 2:17), the statement acknowledges that what is personified by Origen when he referred to the "the mystery of the resurrection", can be achieved without being physically nailed to a cross -- i.e., "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23).  Therefore, it is paramount to pose the question: How does a follower of Jesus pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay?  And what this also means is that if you can't spiritually answer this question, then you have not achieved the necessary Wholeness to fulfill the requirement of carrying your own cross and bringing about your own crucifixion as Jesus commanded.  Further, in view of the fact that those who had achieved righteousness and wholeness without -- or prior to the incarnation and crucifixion of the historical man Jesus -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, ...I came not to call the righteous" -- means that what is allegorically portrayed in the Gospels as the cross -- i.e., what Origen portrays as the "mystery of the resurrection" -- means that there exists another means to accomplish what Jesus did without what is personified in the symbols of the physical crucifixion and resurrection.  

In order for the symbols of the Gospels and religion to be effective in bringing about the spiritual transformation of the believer, these symbols must be embraced and used in the person's everyday life.  With respect to the mystery of the resurrection, St. Gregory’s wrote, “the Resurrection is no other thing than ‘the re-constitution of our nature in its original form’” -- i.e., a restoral to our True Spiritual Nature.  In view of the fact that the symbol of the cross was, and is, widely used by many religious paths, then the understanding of the symbol and its application to the individual has nothing to do with an historical event -- but must be understood as a personal event in the life of every person.  Which means that the symbolism of the cross has virtually nothing to do with one's belief -- but rather, the person's own transformation.  Therefore, the paramount question then becomes: What does the allegorical portrayal of the crucifixion in the Gospels mean on the larger scale of humanity?  Sadly, no modern Christian can answer this crucial question.

 

In order to understand what Paul states is not lawful to reveal, and what Ignatius states would inflict harm upon the greater body of Christian faith-based believers, the mind of the immature believer must be evolved through the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  But therein lies the problem -- i.e., the mind can only be nourished by thoughts and impressions that are themselves Whole and Complete.   And when rightly understood, the symbolism of the Cross is the merger of Balanced and Whole impressions and thoughts of the upper/lower and left/right spheres of mind into the Center of the Cross -- i.e., "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5).  What does it mean to make every thought obedient to Christ?  When Jesus stated that "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23), he was confirming the fact that there is only One Way into the Kingdom -- and that it is through "...‘the re-constitution of our nature in its original form’” through the "narrow gate" that is brought into Wholeness in the Center of our Mind and Being.    The necessary Wholeness is therefore easier to understand using the Cathar Cross in the image on the left. 

Who were the Cahars?  Quoting the Wikipedia: "Catharism; from the Greek: καθαροί, katharoi, "the pure [ones]", was a Christian dualist or Gnostic movement... which thrived in Southern Europe, particularly in northern Italy and southern France. Followers were described as Cathars and referred to themselves as Good Christians, and are now mainly remembered for a prolonged period of persecution by the Catholic Church, which did not recognize their unorthodox Christianity".  Why did the Church hunt down the Cathars?  In the same way that the Church hunted down the enlightened priest Giordano Bruno and burnt him at the stake for teaching the people the truth, the Church hunted down all groups who embraced the original teachings that had the ability to transform the mind of the faith-based believers -- thus, fulfilling the warning or the Apostle in the Epistle of Peter to James where he warned that if the body of esoteric knowledge taught by Jesus to his closest disciples is lost or thrown away, that  "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"

When the Cathar cross is understood, it is clear that they possessed the deeper knowledge that the Church of Rome threw away.   And when rightly understood, it is what is personified in the Cathar Cross that each believer must take up and experience to bring about the necessary Crucifixion.  Why?  In the first place, the Cathar Cross has four (4) equal projections out of it's Center, and this presents the necessary balance between the upper/lower and the left/right.  The three dots at the end of each of the cross projections, is representative of the three spheres of mind of the Heavenly, the three spheres of mind of the lower Earthly, and the three spheres of mind of the Male and Female spheres of the Tree of Life that must be brought together into the Center (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).  Only when the three heavenly spheres of mind, three earthly spheres of mind, the three male and three female spheres of mind are all balanced and merged into Oneness and Wholeness -- and these Whole and Balanced Thoughts and Impressions are channeled into the Center of the Cross and through the "narrow gate", can the mind be evolved through the nourishment of the thoughts taken captive to Christ.   Without this necessary Balance and Wholeness of our Thoughts and Impressions, they cannot be channeled into the Center and made "...obedient to Christ".   And without this Balanced Wholeness -- where the four projections of Mind and Spirit from the Center of the cross are all equal and balanced -- the vital life-force is squandered away and lost into nature -- in the manner of the prodigal son who squandered away his inheritance on "riotous living".  Therefore, what is portrayed in the image of the Cathar Cross is a perfect representation of the necessary Wholeness to achieve the transformative mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that enables the person to become Anointed (Messiah/Christ), and bring about the next subsequent stage of birth.  

We can begin to understand the requirement of Wholeness through the symbol of the Cathar Cross where we see three dots at each of the cross extensions at the top/heavenly, bottom/earthly, left/feminine and right/male spheres of mind that are represented in the Cathar Cross.   To begin our exploration of the relationship of the Cathar Cross, the Mystery of the Crucifixion and Resurrection, and the Law of Octaves as the Living Bio-Feedback Organism that monitors and sustains our mental and spiritual development, we must quote a paragraph from The Enigma Of The Law Of Octaves http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Intro

Mind and consciousness functions through a flow and presence of (electrical) bio-energy. In order for an electrical flow to exist, there must be negative and positive polarities interacting with each other.  When you use an appliance, the appliance is plugged into a source of electrical energy (positive and negative) that come together separately and flow through the appliance.  Mind, or Consciousness, can be portrayed as the appliance that is utilizing the positive and negative energy flow of the body to bring about and maintain Consciousness. An EEG is a means to test electrical activity in the brain. An EKG measures the electrical activity in the heart. This electrical energy is a means of testing what can be portrayed as bio-energy or vital life-force upon which the consciousness of man is manifest. Without this presence of bio-energy which is manifest in the interaction of positive/male and negative/female opposite polarities, Consciousness or Mind cannot exist. And this is true of both man and Creator-God. Therefore, electrical activity is the direct result of the flow and interaction of the Positive and Negative polarities. No energy can exist or flow, without the positive and negative polarities. A bird can sit on a power line -- a squirrel can run on a power line -- and so long as they don't contact the two polarities of power together, they will not be electrocuted.
@@@

To understand the above, you must be able to comprehend this following statement: Consciousness is fueled by bio-energy or vital life-force that originates in our Soul -- is drawn out of the Seven Spiritual Centers -- balanced in the Mind as patterned in the Tree of Life -- and optimally, returned to the Source through the Center of the Mind into the "narrow gate" -- and if the thoughts or impressions are Whole, only then can they be used to bring about the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  And therein lies the problem as seen in the image at the right.  The Four Gates of the Mind has often been portrayed as Earth, Water, Fire and Air -- with the Æthers being expressed as representing Spirit.  A thought or impression that is Whole, brings together each of the segments from the Four Gates.   The mind does not grow and expand in jumps. The mind evolves beyond organic levels of consciousness step by step -- level upon level -- each impression or thought providing the bio-energy to expand and deepen the development of the mind -- i.e., "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).  But, in order for the thought or impression to enter into the "narrow gate" where developmental growth of mind and spirit can take place, the thought or impression must possess the Wholeness that brings the Four Gates of the Mind together -- as expressed in the image at the right -- with equal segments combined from the earthly, the heavenly, and the male and female spheres of mind.  And without this balanced wholeness, the vital life-force can only be expelled out into Nature and lost. 

Where the bio-energy emitted by the Soul is balanced and Whole prior to entering into the organic consciousness of the person we are in this world, it is divided by the seven spiritual centers and the twelve spheres of mind as patterned in the Tree of Life.  The mind that evolves beyond organic comprehension, must bring the division of the Seven and the Twelve into Wholeness and Oneness.  Thoughts that are comprised of equal input from each of the four gates -- uniting the Earthly with the Heavenly -- drawn into the Center by the Feminine-Intuitive and the Masculine-Linear -- achieving the necessary Wholeness that bridges the divided natures of the mind -- and when balanced and whole, only then are these thoughts able to enter into and through the "narrow gate" and bring about the transformational mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening of the mind.  When one of the elements are missing from, or out of balance in the thought-equation -- lacking what is signified in the earthly with the heavenly, and the male with the female -- the progression of the Octaves twist (see The Twisting of Law at the Third Interval http://TheLawOfOctaves.com#Third ), and the bio-energy or vital life-force is diverted off into nature and lost. 

The three Male and three Female spheres of mind that manifest the Tree of Duality (see Tree of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ), must function together in Oneness, to rejoin the upper heavenly and the lower earthly spheres of mind in Wholeness.  The three lower-earthly kingdoms are the opposite half or polarity of the three upper-heavenly kingdoms.  What this means is that the three male linear spheres of mind, must work in conjunction with the three feminine intuitive spheres of mind, to connect the upper-heavenly with the lower-earthly -- bringing about the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening, by channeling the vital life-force which carries the balanced and whole thoughts and impressions of the person through the center "narrow gate".   

What is absent from the Meme on the left, is the development of the earthly and the heavenly spheres of mind.  While it is true that the male and female spheres of mind must achieve Full Maturity, so too must the Earthly and Heavenly Spheres of Mind.  And therein lies the problem with many religious systems which attempt to negate or even sacrifice the development of the earthly to acquire higher vision and appear spiritual.  Only when it is understood that the lower Earthly is the opposite half or polarity of the upper Heavenly, can we realize that the lack of the development of the Earthly will negate any degree of Wholeness.  The author and visionary Philip K. Dick was able to recall his Soul's previous life in the first century where he lived as an original follower of Jesus.  He also 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)."    These other mystery religions that Philip Dick was making reference to, sacrificed the earthly in order to achieve amnesis insights and vision.  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 higher vision can be achieved via Anamnesis through the focus on the third-eye associated with the sixth spiritual center -- as well as the raising of the kundalini energy from the base of the spine into the upper spiritual centers.  The limitation of what Philip K. Dick portrayed as the Mystery Religions is presented in his words when he referenced these  "...other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here."   Many of these mystery religions claim the the goal is to "get above the mind" -- thereby leaving the mind itself undeveloped.  What was the basis of Philip Dick's assessment?  While Giordano Bruno was bunt at the stake for teaching Christians the Original Gospel concepts and teachings that were suppressed by the Church (see The Restored Gospel Teachings http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ), the account of Philip K. Dick reveals to seekers the purpose of the allegorical catalysts used in the scriptures to connect the person we are in this world with our Higher Source of Being.   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 recall.   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."

The Fundamentalists who are of a physical-only three-dimensional mindset, can only grasp the text of the written words of the scriptures.  But the scriptures were composed by mystics who viewed this world as a type of prison that held mankind captive in a world of shadow-images as portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave (see Plato's Cave http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#Cave ). The Dead Sea Scrolls have proven that the foundation of the Gospel teachings was borne out of the Essenes -- and the portrayal of the physical as a prison is demonstrated in the words of Josephus who was a contemporary of the man Jesus who lived among the Essenes and stated that they (Essenes) “…resigned up their souls with great alacrity, as expecting to receive them again.  For their doctrine is this, that bodies are corruptible, and that the matter they are made of is not permanent; but that the souls are immortal, and continue for ever; and that they came out of the most subtle air, and are united to their bodies as to prisons, into which they are drawn by a certain natural enticement; but that when they are set free from the bonds of flesh, they then, as released from a long bondage, rejoice and mount upward...”.  The 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"

When Philip Dick made the statement that, unlike the Mystery religions, the understanding of the Law and the Gospel teachings were designed to manifest the Kingdom of Heaven upon the Earthly through Wholeness achieved through the knowledge of the Laws -- i.e., "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, ...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 to develop the mind through the transformative process of expansion and deepening of consciousness, and then enable the disciple of TheWay to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom, is easily demonstrated in the quotations on the proper use of the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ).   Philip K. Dick referenced a difference between the Gospel teachings of Jesus in relation to what he portrayed as the Mystery Religions because of this primary difference in the Gospel path.  Instead of the exclusive focus on the upper, wholeness and achieving the subsequent stages of birth requires that each of the twelve spheres of mind be evolved to the degree where Oneness is achieved.  Most Mystery and Eastern Religions attempt to suppress the lower centers while their focus is on gazing through the upper sixth spiritual center (chakra).   Whereas, the scriptures and the living of a holistic lifestyle in a spiritual community focuses on the development of the Whole Self.     All the Power in this world is manifest in the Lower Earthly Centers.  While the upper centers can provide higher insight, it is the lower centers that enable the person to bring about alchemical change and transformation of the base (lead) into gold -- which is necessary to bring about Wholeness.  

When each thought draws through the portals or four gates of the Mind in the Tree of Life as patterned in the teaching -- "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." But what this teaching in the Gospel of Thomas is missing is preserved in the version of the same teaching found 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."  The left and right are of course the male/female outer columns of the Tree of Life/Knowledge. And after bringing together and joining the duality of the above (heavenly) and the below (earthly), and in understanding the outer as a reflection of the inner, only then can this balanced wholeness enter "...into the center and passing into the spirit". The bio-energy rides upon the impressions and the thoughts of the mind -- with the vital life-force that is not balanced and made whole, lost into nature. The vital life-force that is balanced and made whole, is able to be drawn into the Center and can then be used in the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.

 

It is the fruit of the Tree of Life that is the source of the Divine Manna that nourishes the mind and brings about spiritual advancement that provides access and entrance into the Edenic Kingdom.  That the Tree of Life is a reality of Higher Mind that all of mankind can gain access to, and be nourished by the Divine Manna and life-giving fruit thereof, is demonstrated in the statement in the Revelation: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7). 

When it was stated, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6), reference was not made pertaining to knowledge that a person learns and is taught by others -- but rather,  the self-knowledge that one must understand to make the inner Journey in TheWay where the believer can be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life.  In fact, this Spiritual Nourishment that cannot be received in the outer world -- is the meaning of the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).  So, by "washing and purifying our physical self and detaching ourselves from the thinking and lifestyle of this world", we begin to be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life.   "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17), this "hidden manna" is the the Sacred Knowledge or the Divine Manna that can only be imparted to the seeker directly from the Indwelling Logos and True Prophet (see The One Teacher) -- who is the ONLY TEACHER that Jesus commanded to seek out and learn from. 

He who overcomes, are those who overcome their own inner division and duality of the four gates of the mind as patterned in the twelve points portrayed in the Cathar Cross.  That one must therefore overcome the twisting of the Law of Octaves, is why the original followers and disciples of Jesus witnessed to the fact that the historical man Jesus achieved the Anointing of the Mind (Messiah/Christ), and "...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).  Further witnessing to the reality that when a person  "...thus fulfills the law, they are able to become Christs."  (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).  Fulfilling the Law can only be accomplished when your mind is nourished by thoughts and impressions that are Whole, and can be channeled through the "narrow gate" in the Center of your Mind and Being -- i.e., "They that are whole have no need of the physician, ...I came not to call the righteous".  Those thoughts and impressions that lack the necessary Wholeness, are diverted out of the Center and lost into nature -- portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son as having squandered away their inheritance on "riotous" living -- expelling their bio-energy on the things of this world.

Our Higher Soul-Self which is our True-Self that is our twelve-dimensional pre-existent Soul that came into existence in the Alpha of Creation as a spark of the Divine Mind (see The Evolving Soul http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#TheEvolvingSoul ), sees all things in Wholeness and Oneness.  Our Higher Soul-Self is a Being of Light -- i.e., "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men" (John 1:4).  How?  In the twelve-dimensional Realm of the Soul, the opposite polarities of Male and Female, in conjunction with the opposite polarities of Heaven and Earth, all exist in Balanced Oneness.  What then is the source of the division of man and creation?  White Light is comprised of the Seven Colors of the Rainbow -- which in Music, equates to the seven notes of the Octave -- and as the vital life-force becomes divided across the spectrum of the Seven Spiritual Centers of the three-dimensional physical -- wherein the bio-energy enters into our own body through the seven spiritual centers and the twelve spheres of the mind as patterned in the Tree of Life.  Therefore, to grow and expand the Mind, we must restore the Oneness of the White Light bio-energy flow as it is channeled through the Mind and into the Center -- wherein it is then used to bring about the mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening of our Consciousness. Therefore, only when our Thoughts and Impressions are themselves balanced and Whole, can these Thoughts and Impressions bring about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.

Intellect is the result of seeing and understanding the diversity of all things. As stated in the 90th Chapter of The Gospel of the Nazirenes which preserves this higher reality that plagues organic physical man: "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." Organic man is only capable of seeing one side, as patterned in the twelve faces of the crystal.   Wholeness requires the harmonization of the perceptive vision of each of the twelve spheres of mind onto a higher plane of Comprehension.  In the image of the Cathar Cross at the left, the twelve spheres of mind are portrayed in the Heavenly/Upper Triad -- which is the opposite half or polarity of the Earthly/Lower Triad -- which must be brought together in the Unity of the Feminine/Left Triad with the Masculine/Right Triad -- and channeled in Wholeness into the Center Narrow Gate of the Center-Love Sphere of the Tree of Life. 

Man kind is portrayed as having been created in the Image of God.  God is therefore the Consciousness of Creation.  But Consciousness is not spawned out of nothing.  Consciousness requires a Positive/Male polarity that is portrayed as our Heavenly Father, which interacts with a Negative/Female polarity that is portrayed as our Heavenly Mother, which interaction manifests the Third-Force Balance portrayed as the Logos or Mind of God -- portrayed as the Son of God.  All Souls came into being as sparks of the Divine Mind -- and in the same way that Intelligence requires all realities to be perceived from different perspectives, all Souls are as a Single Neuron in the Mind (Logos) of God.  But for each Soul to possess the necessary Intelligence to perceive and understand, the Divine Pattern must be expressed into each Soul -- which is imbued with a diverse series of neurons as represented in each life that the Soul has lived.  The Mind of God is evolving through the diverse experiences of the Souls that each are as a Single Neuron in the Divine Mind.  Each Soul is evolving through the experiences of mankind in this and other worlds.  Where the Soul which is a Being of Light dwells in a twelve-dimensional Higher Reality, all growth is brought about through the interaction of the Opposite Polarities of this three-dimensional realm -- i.e., male and female, heavenly and earthly.

Is there another side or dimension of marriage that few men and women are capable of understanding?  In the allegorical Genesis account man and woman came into being when woman was drawn from and separated from man -- which means that in their Natural State, Male and Female are At-One.   And this Unity of Man and Woman was acknowledged when Jesus said: “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate” (Matt 19:4-6).  And this Higher Unity of Man and Woman was confirmed in The Second Epistle of Clement where this ultra-important teaching that was removed from the Gospels modern Christians use is quoted as stating: “Let us expect, therefore, hour by hour, the kingdom of God in love and righteousness, since we know not the day of the appearing of God. For the Lord Himself, being asked by one when His kingdom would come, replied, 'When two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   What Clement -- the disciple of Peter who is claimed by the Church as the fourth pope in succession of Peter -- is stating in accord with the Original teachings is that when the seeker/believer brings this condition about within their own Mind and Being, that the predicted and expected Kingdom will come within them as promised -- as stated in Jesus' teachings on the Key of Knowledge (see The Third Fatal Mistake - Not Proving The Truth).

It is important to recognize that when Clement wrote the above in his Epistle to a congregation of Christians, he did so in the expectation that the people to whom he was writing would understand the great truths he was presenting to them -- i.e., that the Kingdom or End Times would and could only come when "...two shall be one, that which is without as that which is within, and the male with the female, neither male nor female’”.   And the fact that this statement that is also in the Gospel of Thomas and was contained in a first century Epistle from an elder to a congregation of believers in that time-frame, could not be contained and understood in a letter or epistle to a congregation today, is merely one example of the fact that the dogma and thinking of the modern Church has virtually nothing in common with the original teachings of Jesus known as TheWay (see The Original Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Church Dogma http://TheCall.Nazirene.org#OriginalTeachings ).   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.

 

 

Lets pose some questions: What man marries a woman so that he can explore her intellectual powers of mind and consciousness that he lacks, in the endeavor to make the two "one flesh" and bring about Wholeness and Completion?  What man today is even aware that as his own opposite polarity/half, a women possess opposite intellectual powers of mind that his gender suppresses?  What man marries a woman so he can work with her -- develop her unique areas of mind that he lacks -- supplying to her the bio-energy and vital life-force she needs to inherit and fulfill her birthright as a goddess who sees and understands all that he is by nature, inherently blind to?  And that only after providing for her -- assisting in her development and exploration of her unique intellectual abilities that in his organic condition of mind, he is incapable of understanding with any depth -- giving of himself in the process of elevating him and his wife to higher levels of Self-Knowledge, Consciousness and Being? 

In the same way that a woman will remain physically barren without a man, she needs the man's Generative Power to Intimately Connect with him -- enabling the man and woman to make high-level intellectual interactions within a Mental-Cocoon or Morphic Field that creates a Common Atmosphere in which they dwell -- exchanging thoughts and impressions between them -- and after the connection is established, she needs his flow of bio-energy and vital life-force to arise Intellectually and fulfill her destiny as a Goddess.  She needs him to explore to the very depths of her mind and being.              

 

In this three-dimensional realm that enables the male/female and heavenly/earthly polarities to interact through them, it is the sexual interaction of the man and woman that enables this evolutionary growth to manifest and be brought about.  In the allegorical account of Genesis, Eve (women) is portrayed as having been drawn from the side of Adam (man) -- which portrays a divided mind and and consciousness.  And the male and female polarities can therefore directly interact, though physical sex when the (sexual) DNA of the male becomes embedded in the mind of the female (see Study On DNA Exchange http://BrotherOfJesus.org#study ) -- thereby creating a physical connection between husband and wife.  As patterned in the subheading entitled The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#foundation , this connection creates a semi-oneness between the man and woman that enables the Spiritual Centers of both to interact as personified in the image on the right.  Where the male is polarized positive in the lower (earthly) centers, the female is polarized positive in the upper (heavenly) centers.  And it is through this interaction of the male and female columns of the Tree of Duality, where the heavenly can be reunited with the earthly -- brought into Wholeness in the Center -- wherein the bio-energy is then drawn through the "narrow gate" in the Center, where the thoughts and impressions that have achieved Wholeness can then initiate and bring about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening of the mind that enables the husband and wife to bring about the next stage of birth -- thereby uniting them with their Higher Soul-Selves -- 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 paradoxical opposite polarities are necessary in order to perceive and understand from different and opposite perspectives.  This interaction cannot take place in the higher reality of the Soul, because our Soul exists in in a twelve-dimensional Oneness without division.  Therefore, for the opposite polarities of mind to evolve, the natural divisions of the mind must be manifest in an environment of separation where they can interact.   With the four main divisions being the male and female and the earthly and heavenly spheres of mind -- with each of the four existing in the pattern of the Trinity -- manifesting the twelve spheres of mind.  Which twelve spheres are allegorically set forth in the Zodiac, the twelve tribes of Israel, and the twelve disciples portrayed in the Gospels.  The twelve signs of the zodiac portray the cosmic mind -- the twelve tribes of Israel portray the divided mind of man -- and the twelve disciples allegorically portray the mind brought into Wholeness -- which Wholeness is allegorically portrayed in the account of Jesus which is the destiny of each Soul as it evolves to Wholeness and Perfection -- i.e., "You, therefore, must be Perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" Matt 5:48).                   

The Mind, as pattern in the Tree of Life, is the twelve spheres that see and understand from the perspective of four paradoxical perceptions -- with each of the Four acting as a heavenly-trinity -- an earthly-trinity -- and the opposing male/female trinities of the left and right. Which is exactly as portrayed in the image of the Cathar Cross.  In order to pass through the Center which is the "narrow gate", each impression or thought must draw upon and bring together and unite the aspect of each thought that is in the Upper-Heavenly Triad with the Lower-Earthly Triad -- drawn into the center through the unification of the Feminine-Triad and the Masculine-Triad of the outer columns -- where the vital life-force can then be drawn into the Center, where it can them bring about the expansion and development of the mind. What this means is that the fragments that make up the thought in Wholeness -- the fragment from the lower/earthly must be united with it's opposite fragment in the upper/heavenly -- drawn together in the Center by the unity of the male/female outer columns -- which permit the vital life-force in Wholeness to then be drawn through the "narrow gate" and into the Center where the White Light of the Restored bio-energy is then able to grow the Mind and Consciousness of the person.

The Living Fruit of the Tree of Life where each of the Triads are balanced and Whole, is the nourishment that brings the eater thereof Life.  In contradistinction, with the division of the Male and Female Outer Columns which constitutes the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good and Evil), the eating of this forbidden fruit of duality brings death through the process of non-growth and lack of development -- i.e., “Another disciple said to him, Lord, first let me go and bury my father. But Jesus told him, Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead” (Matt 8:21-22).  Those who eat the fruit of division and duality -- whose mind has not been matured through the life-giving fruit of the Tree of Life -- are the dead that Jesus portrayed.  The Testing for Wholeness of each impression or thought is accomplished by the progression of the Law of Octaves -- with all unbalanced or incomplete thoughts and impressions being channeled outwardly with the twisting of the Octave -- wherein the bio-energy is then lost and channeled into Nature.  As portrayed in the parable of the prodigal son as having squandered away their inheritance on "riotous" living -- expelling their bio-energy on the things of this world.

 

Consciousness Requires Energy: Energy is always the product of the Intimate Exchanges of Positive/Male and Negative/Female polarities that interact with each other to manifest a Third-Force Balance of Mind -- and this Manifestation of Consciousness is the Foundation of the Trinitarian Foundation that is holographically replicated into all of Creation. 

Nourishment And Developmental Growth: In the same way that an infant must have proper nourishment in order to grow and develop into adulthood and maturity, enlightened people throughout the history of mankind have known that the mind of man evolves and grows when nourished with the right thoughts that bring about the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  Because mankind has freewill, growth and development is a matter of the choice of the individual.  In the same way that a person tastes and evaluates anything that is presented to the person as food, the person's mind evaluates our thoughts.  And every thought is evaluated by the Law of Octaves.  Thoughts that are balanced and Whole, are able to stimulate growth and development.  Thoughts that lack Balance and Wholeness are unable to stimulate growth and development of the mind, and therefore these junk-thoughts squander away the bio-energy of the person.  Therefore, the substance and effect with respect to the results of our thoughts -- whether the bio-energy feeds and nourishes the development of mind or is lost into Nature -- is directed by the twisting of the progression by the Law of Octaves. 

When the Gospel account of Jesus warned: "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), he was making reference to the Law of Octaves that monitors and evaluates every word that we speak.   When it was stated that we should "…bridle the whole body" (James 3:2), reference was being made to the channeling of our bio-energy in a balanced and whole manner that brings us intellectual nourishment and development.  Why?  Because the more we develop the resources of our own mind, the more we open the inner "narrow strait gate" that draws us closer to the True Source of our Mind and Being.  

Perhaps the most important portrayal of the Law of Octaves at work in our body and consciousness, is the statement of the elder brother about the younger brother in the parable of the prodigal son where the elder brother said: "But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots..." (Luke 15:30).  Why do I portray this statement by the elder brother in the parable of the prodigal son as the most important reality of the Law of Octaves?  Because it is not until we use the scriptures as the Key of Knowledge by turning the parable within your own mind (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ), that you can begin to understand how each person is facing the plight of the prodigal son in their present life.  When the elder son accused the younger son of having "devoured your livelihood with harlots" -- the livelihood that was being referenced is the bio-energy of vital life-force that gives us life -- the source of which is directly from God via our Higher Soul-Self.  The reference to "harlots", is not necessarily the portrayal of women -- but more accurately, the things of this world that drains us of our bio-energy of vital life-force that we rely upon to develop our minds.  What this means is that every thought, every word we speak, and every action we take, rides upon bio-energy that either develops and nurtures our mind and consciousness in a positive expansive way -- or, in the case of the person that remains carnal in their thinking, this vital life-force is expelled and lost into nature. 

When Paul stated to the Christians who he had taught the meaning of the Gospel that "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3) -- the question must be posed as to why Paul could not speak freely about the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings?  And this reality is expressed in the meaning of the Greek text of Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians (2:14) where Paul states that the "natural" organic mind of man cannot comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom.   Which profound statement provokes the question: What is meant by the term that Paul used when he described the very people who he had himself taught who were incapable of comprehending the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom when he portrayed them as being of a "natural" organic level of mind and consciousness?   The Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary writes with respect to the meaning of the word in the original Greek language: "natural man—literally, 'a man of animal soul'."  Further,  the Treasury Of Scriptural Knowledge states of this ignored and profound statement at 1 Cor 2:14 which reads (quoting Paul): "But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" -- wherein the proper interpretative-meaning of Paul's words with respect to the reality of what is portrayed by Paul as the natural man is then presented: [Psuchikos,] the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for [psuche] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the [nous] understanding, or [pneuma,] the spirit. And this is not only true -- but is a fact of life that all mystics and enlightened souls must deal with when interacting with organic man.   Which is exactly why Paul profoundly stated to the very people who he had personally taught the Gospel message: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.  I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3).   Stating to the body of confirmed and baptized believers who he stated had received all truth and knowledge pertaining to the elementary "traditions" of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14).    

What this means is that when Jesus taught the Gospel, he could not reveal the higher spiritual meaning of the Gospel to those who came to listen and learn from -- which spiritual meaning he could only reveal and convey to his closest disciples as demonstrated in the words: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34).  What Jesus revealed to his disciples which could not be revealed to men who were of an organic "natural" mindset, was portrayed as the secret knowledge of the Gospel that only the inner core of disciples could receive -- as stated in the words: “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12).  And when the disciples asked Jesus to explain why he could not speak openly to the people, he 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). 

It's not that Jesus did not want to reveal the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God to the multitude of people -- but rather, he could not.   Why? Because the minds of the multitude of prodigal sons had been seduced by what the older brother portrayed as the "harlot" of this world.   Therefore, the minds of "natural" men had never evolved beyond the organic levels of consciousness.  How, then, could the mind of "natural" man learn and comprehend the esoteric meaning of the Gospel teachings?  By understanding and embracing the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see The Sower And The Seed http://SowerAndTheSeed.Ebionite.com ) -- and why Jesus stated: “And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?” (Mark 4:13).   And to put this great biblical truth in the more modern language of the New Living Translation: “But if you can't understand this story, how will you understand all the others I am going to tell?”.  

How can this carte blanche statement be made in the portrayal of all of mankind as a being of animal-consciousness that is incapable of comprehending his own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality?  In the words of Aristotle, "At his best, man is the noblest of all animals" -- but what defines animal consciousness that is incapable of understanding man's not only the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings -- but also the higher reality of the Soul and the Kingdom of God? Which provokes the question: What is the basis of Jesus' statement pertaining to organic man's inability to comprehend higher spiritual reality?  In the same way that the earth moves within the construct of the universe -- that day and night exist universally -- that the seasons predicatively change -- that man and woman must come together in sexual union for a child to be born -- all that Jesus was doing was interpreting and explaining the Laws of Creation as they apply ot the movement and evolutional development of the mind and consciousness of mankind.    

Unlike the movement of the earth and the heavenly bodies, man has freewill and must make choices in his life.  These choices we make are empowered by the consciousness of the people who are making the choices -- and the word empowerment can be defined as the "power to do something" -- meaning, that the thoughts, words or actions associated with our daily life, requires the utilization of each of our bio-energy of vital life-force that empowers our mind and consciousness, in order to think or perform our daily tasks.  Which means that in accord with the Natural Laws, there is consequence to our expelling our bio-energy on not only things of no meaning -- but also that incur negative consequences.  And in many of the parabolic teachings, Jesus taught that there is a (Natural) Law of God -- and when man makes choices that violate or impact the Law in a negative manner, that we suffer the consequences of being deprived of the benefit that the Law is designed to bestow upon man.       

 

The Proverbial UnAnswered Enigmatic Questions Of Life: The Gospel Of Thomas declares that the Kingdom lies before you -- but you see it not!  (113) His disciples said to him, "When will the kingdom come?"  Jesus said, "It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying 'here it is' or 'there it is.' Rather, the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it."

Why?   If these words are true -- that the Kingdom of God lies before all mankind, and they see it not -- then the question must be asked: What Force of Nature and the Universe inhibits you from seeing and knowing all realities of the Kingdom and the life you are presently living?   And if the Kingdom lies before you, why can't you see the Kingdom, and know God?   Further, what of the proverbial questions of life: Why is there evil in the world?   If there is indeed a God or Supreme Intelligence that looks out and oversees this world, why doesn't this Higher Power bring an end to the world's suffering, sickness and death?   Which provokes the question: What is the real purpose and objective of the lives that we are presently living?   And if there is indeed a God who has Created this world, what is the cause of the many great inconsistencies of life -- i.e., Why are the few born rich?  Others in abject poverty?  Why does it seem that while the good often die young, the evil live long and prosperous lives?   Often inflicting great suffering and hardship upon their fellow man?  Why are some people beautiful?  While others would be classified homely and even ugly?  Why are some people intelligent and quick-witted, while others are slow to learn and unable to rationally present themselves?  Why are there geniuses on one side of the intelligence spectrum, and moronic feebleminded imbeciles on the opposite end?    Why are some born blind, deaf and impaired by every other deformity of birth?   Is there a reason for the quagmire of these inconsistencies?  

Not only does each and every person who has ever walked the face of the earth have the potential to answer all of the above questions -- but it is their ultimate destiny.   Are we therefore dwelling in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness)?   If this is true -- and we are presently dwelling in what is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being --  then all the answers to all the questions and enigmas of life have been set before us, and it is our own self-imposed blindness that inhibits us from seeing?   Thus, Jesus said to his disciples when they asked why he did not speak plainly to the multitude of people: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand..." (Mark 4:11-12).   Therefore, when Jesus portrayed those who were "without", he was making reference to those who dwelt in what he portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).   Which also provokes the question: Is this world what is portrayed in the analogy of the Illusions of Plato's Cave (see Cave)?   Moreover, if your present existence in this world is synonymous with what is portrayed in the Gospel account of the parable of the prodigal son, then it will remain impossible for you to escape what is allegorically portrayed as this, the Far Country, until which time you can achieve that level of potential development that permits you to answer the above questions.   And when the question is posed as to how this inherent destiny is brought about?   The answer is through a series of Natural Laws that pervade all of Creation and existence on every level of Mind and Being (see The Laws Of Creation http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#TheLawsOfCreation ).   

 

 

The Mind evolves when it is nourished by Thoughts that are Balanced and Whole.  But what does this mean?  Modern science has arrived at the understanding that what man sees with is physical senses, is a projected image that originates from an higher Unseen Field-Reality.   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".

So long as our thinking and mind remains anchored and ruled over by our lower (animal) consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature  http://SoulSelf.org#AnimalNature ), it will remain virtually impossible for us to bring our thinking into any degree of Balanced Wholeness.   Until we learn to penetrate the Unseen Field, and unite the Upper-Heavenly with the Lower-Earthly, we will remain a prisoner shacked in what is portrayed as the "outer darkness" of Plato's Cave (see Plato - The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#Plato ).  How, then, do we begin to connect the upper-heavenly with the lower-earthly spheres of mind?  The Answer: Through the interaction of the Male and Female Columns as patterned in the Tree of Life (see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#foundation ).  And therein lies the other Enigma of Abject Ignorance of our modern culture.  Quoting from The Trinity - Divine Pattern - Linear vs Intuitive Development Of The Mind http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org/#Trinity

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

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

In the same way that because of his polarity, a male is more powerful than a woman on one level, it is also true that a female is more powerful than a male in different areas of mind and being.  And when a man who by virtual of his gender-polarity possesses greater physical power, subjugates and enslaves a women whose greater power is manifest on a higher plane of mind and consciousness, it is the man who is in fact being deprived of the very Life-Giving Impressions that he needs to become Whole, Complete and enter into Life.  And it is this absence of the Feminine Impressions that inhibits the True Advancement of Man, keeping him bound by his lower earthly nature and animal-consciousness (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature).   And when rightly understood, this interaction of male and female Impressions which is the key to all mental and spiritual development beyond the most immature of human levels of consciousness -- and is manifest in the merger and reunification of the opposite polarities and powers of mind as manifest in the respective male and female divided opposites in the Wholeness of the Restoration of AdamEve.  Because few men can successfully deal with the inner conflict of the (male) Linear and (female) Intuitive Spheres of Mind -- permitting the reunification of the Three Lower Earthly Kingdoms with the Three Upper Heavenly Kingdoms -- all true mental and spiritual growth and development has been externalized in the relationship of the opposite polarities of Man and Woman.   Which means that when rightly understood, the Life-Giving Fruit of the Tree of Life, is the Impressions of Wholeness that brings about mental and spiritual growth when what is personified as Adam and Eve is restored to their original reality of AdamEve -- i.e., "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  And the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Knowledge of Good and Evil) that brings death to the eater thereof, is the separated Impressions of a divided Adam and Eve.   Which means that the true purpose of sexual intercourse between a man and woman, is to initiate and maintain this connection between the two externalized polarities of mind manifest in the the divided paradoxical opposites personified in Man and Woman -- thereby acting as a catalyst in the restoration of AdamEve (man and woman) in the Wholeness of Mankind which is personified as the union making the "one flesh".  And it is this Wholeness of body, mind and spirit that Jesus was making reference to when he stated: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).   Which means that the True and Only path into Life, is to achieve the necessary Wholeness and Completion that is personified in the Original Gospel Teachings that was totally rejected by the Church (see The Reality Of The Original Gospels http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ).   

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

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

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

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

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

We must begin to come to terms with the fact that while man and woman are equal, they are not the same -- to the degree that they represent opposite polarities of mind and being.    In view of the reality that man and woman represent opposite halves of the whole on this plane, then to portray them as the same except for their biological reproductive roles as is being promoted throughout modern western culture, is an outright denial of the truth.   As halves of each other, while men and women are equal, they are anything but the same -- and to be ignorant  of this reality, must be as I portray in an article on Harvard University as the boondoggle of abject ignorance (see Harvard).  And when it is understood that male and female are in fact, opposite halves of a single equation -- and what you impose on one half, you invoke on its opposite -- what we have is the Academia and Feminist Cultural War on Mankind as a Whole. 

In the subheading entitled Lack Of Development Beyond The Organic, I demonstrate that our present politically correct Feminist-based culture is "...based on a biological and scientific lie".   But the bottom line is that woman is half of the whole on this plane -- and as half of the whole, a woman is a woman, because a man is a man -- and thus, the unique expressions, abilities and potential of man and woman, inhibits and suppresses certain abilities in the opposite sex, and these unique gender-based abilities are the direct expression of who each of us is as a man and woman.   A man is a man with unique masculine gender-based abilities, because a woman is a woman with unique feminine opposite gender-based abilities.   The male polarity has certain aspects and powers of mind and being that are Naturally Suppressed by the Laws of Nature, in order to strengthen and manifest other aspects and powers of mind -- and these aspects and powers that are naturally manifest in the male polarity, are reversed in the feminine polarity.   And this divided reality of mind and being is necessary to bring about an expansion and deepening of consciousness, mind and being, beyond mankind's physical limitations. 

When you attempt to program young girls to think and act in a more masculine artificial role -- and by doing so, you in effect suppress the natural feminine abilities in young girls that are virtually absent in the male gender -- then what you have is a Franken-Culture of deformed individuals who can no longer fulfill their intended potential or divine role.   A woman is a woman -- possessing divine and unique abilities that are gender-suppressed in her male counterpart -- because a man is a man.   A woman's unique weaknesses and strengths are all necessary to manifest positive attributes of Mind and Being, when Completed within an evolved male/female union.   By her very nature a woman has inherit weaknesses in relation to her male counterpart -- and a woman's gender-based weakness are absolutely necessary in order to create an environment within herself where she is able to receive from her opposite male-gender, and then supercharge the resulting transformative force within her mind and being -- returning this transformed power back into her male opposite in his gender-based reflective weaknesses, in order to raise up the two (joined man and woman) onto a Higher Plane.   In accord with the Natural Laws of Consciousness and Creation, all growth and development is brought about through the balanced interaction of opposites.   With respect to the true statement: "Show me your strengths, and I'll show you your weaknesses", the opposite is also true: "Show me your weaknesses, and I'll show you your strengths".   There is a necessary relationship between the physical and the mental -- and there is an important reason why women are physically weaker than her male counterpart.   Only when we begin to understand that what is perceived as a weakness is in fact a manifest strength on another level of mind and being, can we even begin to comprehend the true dynamics of the male and female reality within the Holographic Divine Pattern of Creation.  When rightly understood, the perceived physical weaknesses of woman in relationship to her male opposite, is actually manifest strengths of mind that is necessary to achieve Wholeness and Completion.   On one level woman is weaker than her male counterpart, because on another level woman is stronger than her male opposite.   And the weaknesses of both genders are in accord with the Laws of Creation, necessary to manifest the strengths associated with each gender -- which are necessary for the process of interaction growth and development.  

Women by their very nature, possess inherent abilities that are absent in males of an organic mindset, and these inherent abilities or woman must be developed into strengths within the dynamics of the male/female interactive relationship.   The problem in academia is seen in the fact that the male Linear spheres of mind rule -- leaving no place for the feminine Intuitive.   Quoting from The Holographic Pattern Of Sex:

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

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

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

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

From the perspective of modern academia, knowledge is the cumulative wisdom recorded in their countless books and historical records -- and there is virtually no place for the Intuitive to access the Inner Source of Knowledge that lies beyond the domain of man's books and libraries of wisdom.   In fact, the vast majority of Intuitive-based Knowledge is totally rejected by academia as worthless speculation.   If you can't prove it from a Linear perspective, then it is not valid and has no place in the domain of academia.   

When our culture attempts to program women to compete and think in a linear male perspective, not only does her innate intuitive spheres of mind remain undeveloped and atrophied, but in her academic linear-based development,  she fails to mature and develop the necessary gender-based attributes that is able to complete her opposite male half.   Thus, she is no longer able to fulfill her divine role as the "help-meet" (savior) that forms the necessary embryo that enables the next level of birth to be brought about within the construct of the Divine Marriage.   In failing to understand that what is perceived as inherent weaknesses from a male linear perspective, is actually strengths from the opposite feminine paradoxical perspective -- along with our Franken-culture's attempt to re-form young girls into surrogate-men -- i.e., pseudo-men who are trained to think from a linear perspective the same as men with the exception of their reproductive roles -- our politically correct Feminist driven culture is denying both men and women the very key to inheriting their full potential and Divine Destiny.  

While such women who are highly trained and educated by modern academia are able to find and achieve high degrees of success from the perspective of the culture of this world, their development will be limited and flat-lined at a certain stage of their development.   Every religion the world over conveys the reality that success from the perspective of this world for both man and woman, does not in any manner equate to higher development and what would constitute spiritual success.   In view of the fact that for the most part, modern academia is in totally denial of man's higher Soul and spiritual natures and realities, absolutely no provision exists within academia which is designed to develop woman's innate Intuitive abilities that are virtually lacking in her male counterpart.   And from the perspective of mankind's higher Soul and spiritual reality, in failing to fulfill the divine role as a "help-meet" that has the alchemical power to complete her male opposite, she will remain alienated from her higher Soul-Self that is Eternal.   Or, as portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas -- i.e., "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".   Without achieving the next stage of Soul-Birth, it will remain impossible for a woman to become At-One with their True-Self that is neither male nor female -- but the dynamic balance of all opposites.   And in suppressing and inhibiting the development of woman's inherent natural Intuitive abilities that are gender-suppressed and often totally absent in her male counterpart, both man and woman suffer the consequences as they are flat-lined at a certain organic stage of their development.   

 

  The Foundation Of A Coverture-Marriage: When the Gospel account of Jesus proclaims: "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate" (Matt 19:6) -- reference was being made of a genuine Coverture-Marriage that is ordained by God -- which has virtually nothing in common with the quasi-marriages ordained by man.  A genuine marriage is spiritual, and such a union must be in harmony and fulfill the requirements of the Laws of God as set forth at The Sacrament Of Marriage http://Sacraments.Nazirene.org#SacramentOfMarriage .   Which means that the vast majority of people who don't understand the spiritual purpose of marriage -- and have no understanding of the requirements and the Laws that must be fulfilled in a Genuine Spiritually Ordained Coverture-Marriage where the man and woman are made by God "one flesh" -- cannot be married in the Spiritual Meaning of the Sacrament of Marriage.  

While there are many religious paths, if one understands the Natural Laws, then there is also a Natural Spiritual path that all of mankind can actively initiate the Laws of Creation and Fulfill them in the Totality and Wholeness of the person's Mind and Being.  When Jesus noted that "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), there is a Natural Path imbedded in the Laws of Creation that brings about Wholeness of Mind and Being.  And if you understand the workings of the Natural Laws in a Coverture-Union, then you can apply the Laws to your Life -- which opens to you the possibility of entering into a state of Wholeness.  Sir William Blackstone, in a famous passage from the first volume of his 1765 Commentaries, described the doctrine of coverture as follows: "By marriage, the husband and wife are one person in law: that is, the very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband: under whose wing, protection, and cover, she performs every thing; and is therefore called in our law-French a feme-covert."  In Obergefell v. Hodges, Justice Kennedy described marriage as an “institution [that] has evolved in substantial ways over time"  --  but if what has evolved inhibits the very essence and purpose of marriage itself, then the modern concept of marriage is not marriage at all -- but rather, a government ordained legal contract that has virtually nothing in common with a Genuine Marriage Union where the merger of the two is made "one" -- or spiritually restored to Absolute Oneness.   What our culture portrays as marriage, is in most instances little more than a Civil-Union that has virtually nothing in common with the transformative power of a Genuine Marriage where the two become "one flesh"    

The modern Christian cannot understand the relationship of the historical man Jesus to the Logos/Son of God (see above Coverture-Marriage), because they don't understand the Foundation of a Genuine Coverture-Marriage.  In the allegorical account of Genesis, prior to the separation of Adam and Eve, the two halves of man existed as AdamEve -- which is representative of the Wholistic Gender of the Soul of Man.   Equally important is the fact that in the separation, Eve (or Woman) is portrayed as having been drawn from the side of Adam (or Man) -- thus, Eve or Woman is the separated and/or divided half of Adam or Man.  

Our Soul or True-Self which dwells at a deeper level of Consciousness, is a Being of Light and Pure Energy and Mind, because our True-Self dwells in a twelve-dimensional realm where the polarities of Male and Female exist in balanced harmony and Oneness.   But our True-Self cannot directly manifest in this three-dimensional sub-realm.  And thus, when the Soul incarnates into this sub-realm, it is either as a male or female.   Why would the Soul incarnate in a sub-realm that only permits the incarnation to be divided across the gender-spectrum as a male or female?  Because all development is based upon experiential knowledge where opposite aspects of self have interacted with other aspects of self.      

If as Jesus taught, the Kingdom is within us -- and to enter the Kingdom we must apply the scriptures within us as the Key of Knowledge (see The Application Of The Key Of Knowledge http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#ApplicationOfTheKeyOfKnowledge ) --  then the only exemption to experiential knowledge based upon external interactions, is through the interactions with one's spouse who appears to be external from one's self, but is not.   In the same way that the Soul of man is the balance of the polarities of Positive/Male and Negative/Female -- which in Harmony is the Light of the Soul (see http://BeingOfLight.com ) -- Eve (Woman) was drawn from the side of Adam, indicating that their normal state is the Restoral of Adam and Even into AdamEve.   When you reunite that which had been divided, then the restored condition of Male and Female  brought into Oneness, is the foundation of a Genuine (Coverture) Marriage Union.  And thus, a Coverture-Marriage is based upon this Restored Higher Reality.  As stated by Supreme Court Justice Black with respect to a Coverture Marriage  when he made the observation: “…this rule has worked out in reality to mean that though the husband and wife are one, the one is the husband”.   Why?  Adam is not a persons name, because it means man or mankind.  When Eve or woman is restored to the unity of their original form as AdamEve, then Adam/Man has been restored. 

Dynamic Couverture-Union: Like AdamEve in the dynamic union prior to the separation, our physical body exists in a state of duality that is functioning together as ONE.  The two halves of the brain, the two lungs, the sides of the heart, the two ovaries and testes, all have two halves that work together as One.  In the case of the Heart which is the Center of man, the one half cannot function without the other half.  In the allegorical account of Genesis, what is portrayed as the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Tree of Duality), is actually the male and female opposite columns or polarities of the whole as manifest in the Tree of Life.  Which means that the fruit that nourishes and gives Life, is the Mental Impressions of the Male and Female columns that have been merged in Oneness.  And, from the perspective of the allegorical portrayal of the mind as presented in the Book of Genesis, the forbidden fruit thereof, is the Impressions of the separated or divided Male and Female Thoughts and Consciousness.  What is an Impression?  It is the core essence of mental movement -- as defined: "an idea, feeling, or opinion about something or someone, especially one formed without conscious thought or on the basis of little evidence."  Therefore, an impression can be understood as the root of all mental movement.  But in the same way that an embryo that evolves into a life is the product of the merger of male and female genetic essence, the same is true with respect ot the male and female columns of the Tree of Life -- wherein our mind grows, evolves and expands through the nourishment of the Impressions that we generate.  Therefore, if the Impressions of our Soul or True-Self that dwells in a higher twelve-dimensional reality is formed out of the united male/female polarities of Higher Mind -- and as three-dimensional beings that are divided and polarized across the divided polarities of either male or female, it can be stated with respect to the generation of Impressions being nourishment as food for the mind, that it can rightly be stated that the divided male or female impressions impose death to the eater thereof -- because so long as the division remains, it will remain impossible for a man or woman to be at-one with their own Soul or True-Self where the divisions of Male and Female exit in a Balanced Wholistic state of Mind and Consciousness.   Thus, the thinking and mindset of the Soul of man which dwells in a twelve-dimensional higher reality where the male and female opposites exist in a Coverture-Union of Oneness, remains incomprehensible to mankind who exists in an undeveloped and divided condition being nourished by the fruit of duality.

Where the polarities of male and female exist in oneness in the twelve-dimensional higher reality of the Soul, this NECESSARY Higher Unity and Balance of male and female cannot organically exist in a divided state in this three-dimensional sub-realm.  Because of this three-dimensional limitation, the Soul or True-Self of man cannot directly incarnate into this world.  Which provokes the question: Why does this duality and division not only exist, but is ultra-important in this sub-realm?  The answer is:  Because all growth, development and birth can only be brought about when (paradoxical) opposites interact with each other -- and this is true on all levels of our Mind and Being.    In accord with the Intelligent-Design of Creation and the Natural Laws and the Divine Pattern that is Holographically Replicated into all aspects of Creation, the divided positive/male and negative/female polarities have the innate ability to totally reunite as the male and female columns of the Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org) -- see also image at the right.    The male and female columns of the Tree of Life are represented in the outer left (female) and outer right (male) columns which are the divided  polarities of the Center Column.  Over the course of many unique lives, the Soul of man evolves through the experiential knowledge drawn from the interaction of the male and female opposites.  Which means that man and woman must have a means to intermittently and intimately interact with each other, in order to manifest the Center Column and be nourished by what is allegorically portrayed as the life-giving fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e., "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  Thereby enabling them in their divided reality to bring about the next subsequent stage of birth.  As Jesus conveyed to Nicodemus that "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God"

While man (male) retains the original pattern of male/female in his chromosomal genetics ("XY"), the "Y" male chromosome is so dominant, that the feminine "X" factor is totally suppressed.  But because woman who is genetically "XX" has the power to attach herself to her male counterpart, she has the unique ability to be a surrogate for the man's suppressed "X" genetic factor.  Thereby enabling a genuine wife to Complete and raise up her husband (see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#foundation ). 

In the same way that when the male sperm and the female ovum are joined in an embryo, the Natural Laws through the interaction of the male and female genetic essence, develop and evolve into a fetus that can be born into his world.  It can therefore be stated that the sperm and ovum enter into a Coverture-Embryonic condition that is necessary for the fetus to be formed and the infant to be born.  The historical man Jesus entered into a Coverture-Union with the Indwelling Logos (aka Son of God).  And this Coverture-Union is the reason why those who Jesus personally taught stated of Jesus that: "...When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366). 

The physical body is formed when the male-sperm and female-ovum unite and form an embryo where the male and female polarities interact and form the physical body of the fetus that prepares for physical birth.  Because the Divine Pattern of Creation has been replicated into every level of Creation -- including the development of Mind and Spirit -- if you understand the physical as a pattern for the whole, you will then be able to bring about a state of Higher Consciousness.  And this is why the Church Father Origen writes with respect to the allegorical nature of the scriptures: It is sufficient however, to represent in the style of a historic narrative what is intended to convey a secret meaning in the garb of history, that those who have the capacity may work out for themselves all that relates to the subject.”   And with regard to what would otherwise be historical symbols and events that would appear to us as the knowledge of superficial episodes of the past, Origen writes: “I believe that every man must hold these things for images, under which the hidden sense lies concealed” (Origen - Huet., Prigeniana, 167 Franck, p. 142).   Students of Hebrew Mysticism will perceive that what the third-century Christian Church Father Origen wrote was no different than what is contained in the Zohar, where it states: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak.   The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not.   The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.   The Jewish mystic who spends his life seeking the inner meaning of the written word that the natural mind of man is incapable of seeing, has warned: "Thus the tales related in the Torah are simply her outer garments, and woe to the man who regards that outer garb as the Torah itself, for such a man will be deprived of portion in the next world..." (the Zohar).   Peter said what appears to be historical never happened.   Paul called the literal text an allegory.   These same truths are again conveyed to us in the words of the Church Historian Eusebius: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”.   What these symbols truly mean is perhaps best expressed by G.R.S. Mead in his celebrated work, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, where he explained that, once properly understood, the true meaning of what is “…projected onto the screen…” of the scriptures, “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds” 

In understanding the Divine Pattern of Creation, when man and woman are born into this world, they can be seen as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm on the next level of being that has the potential to achieve the subsequent stages of Mental and Spiritual Birth.   On the physical level, once joined into an embryo, the 23 chromosomes from the father continue to interact with the 23 chromosomes of the mother in the formation of the body of the fetus.  And this same pattern that is true on the physical, is also true on the mental and spiritual levels of development.  In order to achieve the subsequent stage of birth, the male and female polarities of mind that is manifest in the duality of man and woman, must be able to interact together in order to create a mental/spiritual embryo.  The Mind of man evolves and expands via the Impressions that act as a type of nourishment  that is necessary for the process of growth and development to take place.  In the same way that physical growth and development is based upon the merger and interaction of the chromosomes of the mother and father, all growth and development beyond organic levels of male or female levels of consciousness, must be through the interaction of the opposite polarities of male and female impressions and thoughts.  The allegorically portrayed fruit of the Tree of Duality which brings death, is the divided organic male or female impressions that are not joined to their opposite polarity.   Allegorically, in order to be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life and bring about the next stage of birth, the divided male and female impressions must be restored to oneness.  Which means that in the case of man and woman as a Cosmic Ovum or Sperm on the subsequent level of mental-birth, there must exit an actual physical connection between the man and woman that permits the intimate interaction of the male and female impressions and thoughts.  This actual physical connection that brings about mental and spiritual advancement in this three-dimensional sub-realm, has been instituted by the Natural Laws of Creation.  Quoting from the subheading Sexual Immorality  http://SoulSelf.org#SexualImmorality : In a recent study where it was found that: "Women retain and carry living DNA from every man with whom they have sexual intercourse, according to a new study by the University of Seattle and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center" (see Study).  Further explaining: "This has very important ramifications for women. Every male you absorb spermatazoa from becomes a living part of you for life. The women autopsied in this study were elderly. Some had been carrying the living male DNA inside them for well over 50 years. Sperm is alive. It is living cells. When it is injected into you it swims and swims until it crashes headlong into a wall, and then it attaches and burrows into your flesh. If it’s in your mouth it swims and climbs into your nasal passages, inner ear, and behind your eyes. Then it digs in. It enters your blood stream and collects in your brain and spine.  Like something out of a scifi movie, it becomes a part of you and you can’t get rid of it.  We are only now beginning to understand the full power and ramifications of sexual intercourse."   

Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within you (Luke 17:20-21) -- and that the inner journey can only be brought about through the next stage of birth.  Therefore, the Journey to be united to our Higher Soul or True-Self is an inner Journey of Mind and Spirit.  The Natural Laws of Creation manifested the potential for a man and woman to overcome their inner polarity duality.  By design, the male sperm that is ejaculated into the women during sexual intercourse, which enters her blood stream and collects in her brain and spine, is designed to connect the minds of the man and woman so they can then intimately interact with their impressions and thoughts in the proper Marriage Environment, is the catalyst that has the potential to evolve the man and woman as a Cosmic Ovum and Sperm into a Spiritual Embryo which has the capacity of evolve into what would constitute a Spiritual Fetus that has the capacity to bring about the next subsequent stage of birth  (see This World As A Mental Womb http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#MentalWomb ).   

In the diagram on the left, we see the aura, or ætheric field that encompasses both the man and woman individually -- and with the merged DNA of the Man and Woman as portrayed in the image on the right, has the innate potential to form the morphic field that has the power to create a unique and individualized atmosphere which immerses the husband and wife in their own personalized threefold environment (physical, mental and spiritual), that has the capacity to manifest and join the two halves of man and woman in Oneness.   When the scriptures speak of the man and woman becoming "one flesh", there is no integration of the male and female bodies observed on a physical level.   And yet, because of the joining of the genetics of the woman and her husband,  it is the Morphic Field that is created in a Spiritual Union/Marriage that has immersed the man and woman into a Common Mental and Spiritual Atmosphere -- insulating them from the outer world, and belonging solely to them.   This inner connection permits the merger of the bio-energy that when joined, is no longer lost into nature -- but rather, is channeled within the dynamics of the union.  

One of the most important realities that organic man is blind to, is the reality of Mind.  With our physical eyes and vision, we cannot directly see Mind -- enen though the Mind surrounds the physical body in the manner of a mental-atmosphere.  Yet, the more we develop Wholeness of Mind, the more we develop the ability to perceive Mind -- becoming aware of the Mental Bodies that surround Man's physical body as a personal atmosphere.  In addition to breathing in oxygen, with each breath we polarize the body through positive and negative cycles of Mind that surround the physical body.   And as the mind of the person begins to evolve to a more mature level of consciousness, only then is the person able to begin to perceptively-observe not only the Mental-Bodies that surround each person, but also the Ætheric-Connections that connect individual groups of people together -- and especially the Morphic-Field that Unifies the opposite polarities of a man and women who enter into a Divine Marriage.  

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

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

That the later fourth century Church of Rome threw this essential knowledge away that the first-century Christian clearly understood, does not in any manner change the requirements of birth that Jesus set forth in the Gospel.   In the words of that 60’s philosopher Bob Dylan during that time of his life when he was a student of Hebrew Mysticism, when he said: "He who’s not busy being born, is busy dying"!  There are Two Ways -- i.e., what Jesus portrayed as the "narrow path" of TheWay of Life, and the "broad-way" that the vast majority of mankind walks to their own demise.   And if you fail to bring about the next stage of birth -- with the Second Coming and End Times coming within you, while you are still in the physical body -- it will be impossible to accomplish this necessary next stage of birth in the after-life when you pass from this world.   Thereby fulfilling the statement: "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom" (Matt 16:28).  As stated in the Gospel of Philip: "Those who say that first they shall die and (then) they shall arise are confused. If they do not first receive the resurrection (while) they live, they will not receive anything (when) they die"    Therefore, it is impossible to fulfill the requirements of the Gospels without first fulfilling the teaching of Jesus when he stated: "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."

What the foregoing crucial teaching coveys to the seeker, is the absolute need to bring man's divided realities of mind into a condition of Oneness and Wholeness -- i.e., "When you make the two one...";  The outer person we are in this world, with our inner Higher Self  -- i.e., "when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside"; the lower earthly nature and the upper spiritual nature -- i.e, "the above like the below"; are you restore the unity of Adam and Eve -- i.e., "when you make the male and the female one and the same"; with the understanding and recognition that all Duality is Male and Female -- i.e., "so that the male not be male nor the female female"; and only then can the Kingdom that organic man looks for to come upon the earth -- of that s/he will go to after this lifecycle is completed, will come as stated "...will you enter the kingdom."  The only real question to the equation of Life, is how many individual lifetimes will be required for you to bring this evolved condition about?

It is for this reason that the narrow path of TheWay is portrayed as difficult that few find -- i.e., regardless of what your pastor, minister, priest, clergy or inspired preacher tells you, if you fail to find the "narrow gate that is difficult and which leads to life, and only the very few ever find it" that permits entrance into the Kingdom within you (Luke 17:20-21) while you are still alive in the physical body, you will have walked the broad-way that is walked by the multitudes to their own self-destruction.   The Gospel of Thomas opens with the profound statement: And [Jesus} said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."   The only way to find the meaning of the above statement with respect to overcoming the male/female columns of Duality of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, is to remerge what is allegorically personified as Adam and Eve into their original condition of Adam/Eve, and eat the Life-Giving Fruit in the Center of the Tree of Life ( http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).   Which means that to "find the interpretation of these saying", the seeker/disciple must bring about the next stage of birth by  "making the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."  

The development of mind, spirit and the elevation of consciousness is an enduring process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.  In the same way that our physical body was formed as orchestrated by the Natural Laws, so too is our Mind and Mental Bodies that surround our physical form.   With the exception that in order for the Mind to form, it most be subject to the choices we make and the exercise of freewill (see Living Bio-Feedback Organism http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#LivingBioFeedback ).  Therefore, when rightly understood, our every thought is judged by the Natural Laws. 

As we begin to deepen our consciousness, we are able to tap into our twelve-dimensional Eternal-Self that is a Being of Light -- which we are an expression of that has been projected into this three-dimensional realm.  But the process of deepening our mind requires a great amount of work on self -- i.e.,  "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22).  In the Epistle to the Corinthians Paul commands to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- but how can such a reality be achieved?  To affirm this requirement as genuine, the Gospel account of Jesus warns: "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment" (Matt 12:36 - see Judgment Day - Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being ).  Idle words can be defined as those thoughts or impressions which are not, and cannot, achieve the necessary Wholeness to manifest in the Center of the Tree of Life, and be returned of our Source of Mind and Being.   Which is why Paul tells us to "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17).   Perpetual prayer can be defined as positive thoughts of a higher expression that is able to be drawn up through the "strait gate" -- invoking the process of expansion and deepening of our Mind.

What this means is that every day is Judgment Day -- and our every thought is Judged -- with thoughts of a balanced Wholeness, passing through the "narrrow strait gate" of the Center column of the mind as patterned in the Tree of Life -- and those thoughts and impressions that lack the necessary Balanced Wholeness, being diverted into the outer columns of the Tree of Life and lost into Nature.  Therefore, it is important to understand that when the bio-energy which is the "inheritance" of the prodigal son that he squanders away on "riotous living", what is being allegorically portrayed is the loss of man's inheritance that has the capacity to enable us to enter into Higher Consciousness and Life.   The working of the Natural Laws to text each thought and impression by virtue of what is portrayed as the Law of Octaves, is explored and presented in the subheading entitled The Octave Test Through The Narrow Gate http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#OctaveTestNarrowGate .  But to understand the Law of Octaves, the beginning of the relevant subheadings is at The Application Of The Law Of Octaves And The Trinity http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#LawOfOctaves ).    

When religious teachings require sexual-purity to avoid negative connections to people other than one's spouse, it is because it becomes very difficult to even impossible to bring about the required merger of the male and female opposite polarities, when the woman is connected to men other than her husband. And Paul correctly presents the problem when he writes to the Congregation at Corinth: "Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, 'The two will become one flesh'". When Jesus said to the woman at the well that she was unable to go and get her husband because she had five husbands (John 4:18), we must be cognizant of the fact that Jesus and other spiritually advanced souls are able to see into the Ætheric (Field) dimensions of mind that surround the body that man in his natural organic condition cannot see.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  Moreover, when Jesus told her that even the man she was with at present could not be her husband in the genuine spiritual meaning of the word, what he was conveying was that because of the polluted environment that she has permitted her body to become, she was incapable of having a genuine husband. Since on one level you stay connected to whom ever you have had sex with, there is only the exchange of low-level thought-impressions which cannot be exchanged at a higher level -- and only drive the person into confusion and meaningless carnal thinking. Thus, mentally and spiritually grounding the people to the mundane earth.  And while the more advanced the soul, the more they are able to deal with adverse body environmental conditions, in most instances even these few become warped in their perception and thinking.  In the same way that a genetic imbalance in a developing embryo creates mental impairment and conditions such as Down Syndrome, the same is true on the next higher holographic level with the bombardment of low-level thoughts from people who one has been previously sexually connected to.  In the same way that the two sides of the ear must move and resonate together, so too must husband and wife.

The Mental Birth Process is controlled and brought about by the Natural Laws.  A reality that is never mentioned by Christians is the words of Jesus with respect to the thoughts and words of a seeker where he stated: "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).  And what words are not considered idle?  Paul tells us to "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17).  And "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5).  Further, how can such an accounting of idle words and thoughts even be made?   Only those who understand the workings of the Royal Law -- as portrayed in the The Ebionite Heresy http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#TheEbioniteHeresy -- are able to comprehend the reality of these words that faith-based believers choose to ignore.  And even if a believer accepts the validity of the foregoing words, it is difficult to understand (1) what makes words considered Idle; (2) how idle words are discerned and judged; (3) and what is the result of idle words that are not obedient to Christ?  

The answer to the crucial questions is Wholeness of Thought that (1) passes through the testing of the Law of Octaves (see The Octaves And The Narrow Gate: http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#OctavesAndTheNarrowGate ); (2) merges and balances the Four Gates of the Mind (see The Four Gates Of The Mind http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com#TheFourGates ); (3) and advances the process of birth as presented in the teaching: "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".  

To understand the process of birth and the functioning of the Natural Laws which test our every thought for Wholeness -- how every thought is monitored by the Law of Octaves with respect to entering into and through the "narrow strait gate" -- it is important to recognize and understand the words of the elder son when the prodigal son returned to the Kingdom of the Father -- i.e., where the prodigal son is portrayed as having "devoured your assets with prostitutes" (Luke 15:30).  But these words can only be comprehended when it is understood that (1) mankind is intimately connected and linked to this realm; (2) that this lower earthly world is feminine in relation to the upper spiritual; (3) and the Generative Power with which the male is imbued with, is the vital life-force that is literally sucked up by the organic life of this realm.  In the same way that the vegetable kingdom is the source of the oxygen that organic life breathes and utilizes in the sustenance of life, the male generative power provides vital life-force to maintain the higher consciousness of organic life.   And in the parable of the two sons, the "riotous living" of the prodigal son was representative of the loss of this vital life-force.  Which means that when it is understood that this world is feminine in relation to the higher heavenly realities, that when the elder son portrays the squandering away of the Fathers inheritance on harlots and prostitutes, he was making reference to the loss of the Generative Power on the things of no substance and meaning in this world.      

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

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

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

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

  The Coverture-Marriage And The Tree Of Life:  The only Marriage that is Genuine and Consecrated, is the marriage where the Duality of Man and Woman is made "one flesh" in a Sanctified Coverture-Marriage Union.   After eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (a.k.a. Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), the statement was made in the allegorical account of Genesis: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23 -- see The Process Of Birth Within The Tree Of Life http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#foundation ).   Thus, the promise is that those who eat the fruit of the Tree of Life, will live forever.  That the Tree of Life is something that all of mankind can gain access to, and be nourished by the Divine Manna and life-giving fruit thereof, is demonstrated in the statement in the Revelation: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).  Thus, only when our Duality is restored in Oneness and Wholeness, do we Overcome -- and only then can we be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life.  And respecting the Tree of Life it is written: "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" (Rev 22:1-2).   Thus, it is ultra-important to understand that the Tree of Life has twelve different kinds of fruit, as patterned in the image on the right -- which corresponds to the twelve primary spheres of Mind.  And man's great diversity and superior intellect is drawn from the fact that each of the twelve spheres of mind see and perceptively-understand all of life from a different and often opposite perspective.  And when rightly understood, the mind as portrayed in the diagram and pattern of the Tree of Life is comprised of four trinities spanning man's divided earthly and spiritual natures.   

With the division and duality of Male and Female in the outer left and right columns, all interaction between the upper heavenly and lower earthly kingdoms is controlled and brought about by the Male and Female Paradoxical Opposite Spheres of Mind.   The Thoughts and Impressions of the Male and Female Opposite Columns are portrayed as the Forbidden Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, because so long as one side of the paradoxical opposite spheres of mind dominates the other -- instead of Balancing in the Center -- lack of development and immaturity will continue to inhibit the necessary transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that is associated with Enlightenment and the Anointing (Messiah/Christ) of the mind.   And so long at the Male and Female opposite spheres of mind fail to interact as equals, while continuing to maintain their opposite powers of perceptive-vision and paradoxical understanding, all growth and development will remain mentally and spiritually flat-lined.  In definition, a Paradox is when two seemingly opposing truths are both equally correct -- and can only be harmonized and brought into Oneness on a Higher Plane of Consciousness and Reality where the paradoxical opposites are brought together to form a Higher Truth that is beyond the comprehension of mind on the initial lower plane of consciousness where the paradoxical opposites are seen as being in conflict.    

The Connection between the Upper-Heavenly and the Lower-Earthly Kingdoms -- which are Male/Positive and Female/Negative Opposite Polarities in relation to each other -- can only be made through the Male and Female Columns of the Tree of Duality with the testing of Wholeness through the narrow strait gate by the Law of Octaves (see The Octave Test Through The Narrow Gate http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#OctaveTestNarrowGate ).  As Jesus taught: "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).  Therefore, every thought and impression that the mind of man generates, is tested for Wholeness as attested to in the statement: "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- and every word is judged, as attested to in the statement: "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).  Allegorically, the testing of the thoughts and words of man is brought about by the Natural Laws that only permit Wholeness to pass through the "narrow strait gate" as portrayed in the words: "So He drove out the man and stationed cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden, with a whirling sword of flame to guard the way to the tree of life" (Gen 3:24).  What this means is that every thought is judged for Wholeness -- and only those thoughts and impressions that are Whole and Balanced can gain passage by the "cherubim" who guard the Tree of Life with their "whirling sword of flame", are able to enter through the "narrow strait gate" and into the Center of the Tree of Life (see Entering Eden's Gate Within http://DevilSpawn.Ebionite.com#EnteringThroughEdensGate ).

Since the upper Heavenly and the lower Earthly Kingdoms can only be brought together through the testing of the Law of Octaves through the Male and Female Columns of Tree of Knowledge, the application of that Self-Knowledge is crucial to the transformational process of achieving the necessary mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening that brings about Wholeness of Mind and Being.  Therefore, the Linear/Male and the Intuitive/Female must empathetically understand not only the weaknesses and strengths of their gender paradoxical opposites, but also their own weaknesses and strengths.  In a Divine Coverture-Marriage where the woman/wife has become a surrogate for the man's/husband's suppressed "X" feminine attributes and spheres of mind, this empathic perception of the opposite strengths and weaknesses is much easier than in a celibate non-marriage mindset and lifestyle.  Why?  The man/male who is far more Linear than his wife/female who is far more Intuitive than her husband, must understand the strengths and weaknesses of both his own mental-polarity, and the opposite polarity of his wife's/feminine mind.   The fact that man and woman see, understand and interpret all of life differently and often opposite from their paradoxical opposite gender, is the means by which all strengths and weaknesses can be merged into Wholeness.   

When Jesus said to the woman at the well that she was unable to go and get her husband because she had five husbands (John 4:18), we must be cognizant of the fact that Jesus and other spiritually advanced souls are able to see into the Ætheric (Field) dimensions of mind that surround the body that man in his natural organic condition cannot see.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  Moreover, when Jesus told her that even the man she was with at present could not be her husband in the genuine spiritual meaning of the word, what he was conveying was that because of the polluted environment that she had permitted her body to become, she was incapable of having a genuine husband.  Since on one level a woman stays connected to whom ever she has had sex with, there is only the exchange of low-level thought-impressions which cannot be exchanged at a higher level -- and only drive the person into confusion and meaningless carnal thinking. Thus, mentally and spiritually grounding the people to the mundane earth.  And while the more advanced the soul, the more they are able to deal with adverse body environmental conditions.  In the same way that a genetic imbalance in a developing embryo creates mental impairment and conditions such as Down Syndrome, the same is true on the next higher holographic level with the bombardment of low-level thoughts from people who one has been previously sexually connected to.  In the same way that the two sides of the ear must move and resonate together, so too must husband and wife.

I previously provided the findings of a modern scientific Study which confirmed the biblical assertion that many sexual partners defile our body -- making us unfit to even  enter into a Genuine Coverture-Marriage where it was found that: "Women retain and carry living DNA from every man with whom they have sexual intercourse, according to a new study by the University of Seattle and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center" (see Study). Further explaining: "This has very important ramifications for women. Every male you absorb spermatazoa from becomes a living part of you for life. The women autopsied in this study were elderly. Some had been carrying the living male DNA inside them for well over 50 years. Sperm is alive. It is living cells. When it is injected into you it swims and swims until it crashes headlong into a wall, and then it attaches and burrows into your flesh. If it’s in your mouth it swims and climbs into your nasal passages, inner ear, and behind your eyes. Then it digs in. It enters your blood stream and collects in your brain and spine. Like something out of a scifi movie, it becomes a part of you and you can’t get rid of it. We are only now beginning to understand the full power and ramifications of sexual intercourse"

From a positive perspective, what this means is that in a genuine Coverture-Union-Marriage, the woman not only becomes part of the man -- but she becomes the opposite three-dimensions that have the power to complete the three-dimensional embodiment of the man/husband.  Thus, we see the interaction of the six dimensions of the Tree of Duality through the male and female columns that are intimately connected when the woman becomes part of the man.  Because the male DNA becomes embedded in the brain, nervous system, and even the organs of the woman, the Natural Laws makes them "one flesh" -- mentally interacting from each opposite side of what is allegorically portrayed as the Tree of Duality (Knowledge of Good and Evil).  Now in the case where the wife is not a genuine spiritual seeker -- and does not make herself part of her husband in a Coverture-Union-Marriage -- and has not been a Soul-Seeker with her husband from life to life who employs all her resources of mind and spirit to complete, interact and raise her husband up -- then there is no spiritual alchemy within the union of the man and woman.  

With respect to the Four Gates of the Mind: The ancients portrayed what constitutes the Four Gates of the Mind, Earth, Water, Fire and Air.  Quoting from Classical Elements in the Wikipedia: "Classical elements typically refer to the concepts of earth, water, air, fire, and (later) aether, which were proposed to explain the nature and complexity of all matter in terms of simpler substances. Ancient cultures in Persia, Greece, Babylonia, Japan, Tibet, and India had similar lists...".   Enlightened wise men understood that what was being portrayed, was the four gates of the mind -- with æther being Spirit.  This body of esoteric knowledge that was a part of every culture, was derived from Spirit -- portrayed as the Ætheres -- and was the manna of those who fulfilled the adage to Know Thyself.   And men of wisdom have always know that man and woman are half of each other -- as is the heavenly and the earthly.  And Higher Knowledge belongs exclusively to those who can in a balanced and wholistic manner, draw from the four gates the nourishment that enables the person to become Enlightend -- and ultimately Anointed (Messiah/Christ).  Which means that to the wise men of the past, woman was a great deal more than a sexual partner -- but rather, the other half of man who possessed mental and spiritual abilities that organic man does not.   In the subheading, The Law Of Action And Reaction  http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#AllActionsInitiateTheirOpposite , I use the image of the heart on the right, to show that the two halves of ManWoman must become, in order to enter into a Covertur-Marriage that permits their thoughts and impressions to pass by the Law of Octaves.  Quoting from the previous link: In the same way that the contraction of the two atrium chambers of the heart initiate the contraction in the ventricles of the heart, in this divided reality every action initiates a reactive-action in its opposite polarity.  Which from the higher perspective of mankind wherein the pattern of the complexity of mind is manifest in the pattern of the Tree of Life,  it means that every word, and every action you make, initiates an opposite polarity-action that MUST BE BALANCED IN THE CENTER OF THE TREE OF LIFE.  When balance and wholeness is achieved, then growth and development is brought about.  When the active and reflective opposites cannot be balanced within one's own self, then the action becomes externalized -- which in the parable of the prodigal son, is portrayed as the squandering away of the inheritance on "riotous living".   But because the loss or externalization of the bio-energy is stamped with what can be portrayed as the imprint of our Spiritual DNA, it MUST return back to us -- and this process can and does continue until Wholeness and Completion is achieved.  Only in a true Coverture-Union-Marriage to the outer male and female columns of Tree of Duality function as ONE, in the manner of a healthy heart -- thereby permitting the thoughts and impressions to enter through the "narrow strait gate" that brings about the transformational mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening of seeker.  Those few who understood the mental and spiritual dynamics of the male/female relationship, became truly Knowing and Enlightened -- while the rest merely propagated the next generation.     

The lower earthly nature of mankind is the negative polarity of the positive upper heavenly nature. But the two paradoxical male and female opposites (heavenly and earthly), can only be brought together with the proper interaction of the male and female columns of the Tree of Duality in an interactive Union of Mind. And this is very important -- i.e., in the union of the opposite polarities of man and women in the Tree of Duality, greater balanced access to the opposite polarities of the heavenly and earthly can be achieved.  When the duality of man and woman are individualized and separate, then the impressions are also polarized to either the male or female perceptive-vision and divided realities of life.  But, with the joining together in a Coverture-Marriage of the opposite polarities of Linear-Male and Intuitive-Female, the Impressions drawn from both the upper-heavenly and lower-earthly opposites, is balanced through the balance of the opposite columns of the Tree of Duality.  Which means that when you add in the three-dimensions of the upper heavenly Gate -- in relation to it's paradoxical opposite in the three-dimensions of the lower earthly Gate -- into the three-dimensions of the male Gate of the linear male spheres of mind in the husband -- into the three-dimensions of the female Gate of the Intuitive spheres of mind in the wife -- and this interaction of the Four Gates is brought about in a genuine Coverture-Union-Marriage -- what you have is the dynamic equation that with the transformative mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening, has the capacity to evolve into the manifestation of the twelve-dimensional Mind as patterned in the spheres of the Tree of Life.  And if you understand the Law of Octaves, this is how the transformational reality of the necessary mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening of the seeker is brought about in accord with Natural Law.

How important is this dynamic interaction of the four gates and the balanced impressions that nourish the mind of the seeker?  When Jesus said to the woman at the well that she was unable to go and get her husband because she had five husbands (John 4:18), we must be cognizant of the fact that Jesus and other spiritually advanced souls are able to see into the Ætheric (Field) dimensions of mind that surround the body that man in his natural organic condition cannot see.  What Jesus was observing when he made this statement, was the stream of vital life-force from five different men with whom the woman had sex, as a connective thought-stream entering into her.  Moreover, when Jesus told her that even the man she was with at present could not be her husband in the genuine spiritual meaning of the word, what he was conveying was that because of the polluted environment that she has permitted her body to become, she was incapable of having a genuine husband.  And therefore, she could not receive the Living Waters of the Spirit.  Since on one level you stay connected to whom ever you have had sex with, there is only the exchange of low-level thought-impressions which cannot be exchanged at a higher level -- and only drive the person into confusion and meaningless carnal thinking. Thus, mentally and spiritually grounding the people to the mundane earth. And while the more advanced the soul, the more they are able to deal with adverse body environmental conditions.  In the same way that a genetic imbalance in a developing embryo creates mental impairment and conditions such as Down Syndrome, the same is true on the next higher holographic level with the bombardment of low-level thoughts from people who one has been previously sexually connected to. In the same way that the two sides of the ear must move and resonate together, so too must husband and wife.

In many respects it can be said that the spouse that you choose -- in conjunction with the substance and depth of the marriage you build -- will define the success or failure of your life.   In the same way that the two halves of the heart must totally support the opposite half, so too can the same be said of one's spouse.   Your True-Self is the balance of male and female and dwells in a twelve-dimensional higher reality.   As a man or a woman who dwells in this three-dimensional sub-realm with a body that has been formed out of the lower earthly consciousness, your advancement, as well as your mental and spiritual development, will remain virtually flat-lined unless you seek Wholeness of Mind and Spirit.   By entering into a Genuine Marriage relationship, you will be presented with the opportunity of advancing by immersing your development in a six-dimensional state of consciousness.   But since marriage is no longer understood as the catalyst that brings about mental and spiritual development, few modern unions between a man and woman are able to fulfill their potential.  

What man or woman in our modern culture embraces marriage as a necessary foundation to bring about mental-development?  Who in our modern culture chooses a spouse on the basis of Higher Spiritual Manifestation?   Yet, so long as you are limited by organic male or organic female consciousness, you will remain blind and unable to comprehend man's higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.   And only by interacting with your (paradoxical ) opposites on all levels of mind and being, will you have any chance of true mental and spiritual advancement and the possibility of acquiring true Self-Knowledge.            


 

 

 

 

As one of the great enigmas of life, only a handful of people have ever understood the Law of Octaves over the course of human history.   Yet, it is one of the most important realities for a person to understand the presence and movement of the Law in their daily lives.  Why?  In the same way that "every hair on your head has been numbered" (Luke 12:7), the Law of Octaves is a moving force -- i.e., an Organic Bio-Feedback Organism, that intimately interacts with every word, thought, desire and deed of interaction of every aspect of the life you have, and are presently living.  But because of both its importance and complexity, I will present a very simple explanation first -- in the hope that as most people gain an elementary understanding of how the Law of Octaves is one of the most important aspects of their lives, that they will become cognizant of how and why it effects them. 

It is human nature that causes most critics and people who don't understand a concept of truth, to automatically oppose whatever they fail to comprehend.  According to 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, “All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”  Then there is the similar statement by Einstein when he said: “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”  And since I have always been opposed by the critics, I usually go into great detail in my in-depth explanations.  In the words of Mikhail Kalashnikov who designed the AK-47 which is known as the most reliable weapon ever made: “Things that are complex are not useful, Things that are useful are simple.”  And because of both the importance and the great complexity of the Facts of Life with respect to the Law of Octaves, I will present the simple explanation that is useable by the average person. 

Mankind's great intellect is the result of the divided complexity of his mind that is able to see and understand from different and often opposing perceptions.  Therefore, the mind of man is segmented, so as to provide different images of the same vision or interaction of the life that he is living.  And it is this segmentation of mind that is his strength -- permitting him to conquer and prevail over the obstacles of life -- that is also his greatest weakness.    

 

 

 

Can man know the answers to all of life's enigmas?   While most of mankind will say no -- and others will hold to the belief that they must wait until they pass from this life to know the answers -- there has always been the few who have witnessed that the opposite is true: Stating that the very purpose of life is to seek the Truth and the Mysteries of God -- and if you fail to find the answer to the enigmas of life while you are still in this world, that you will fail to fulfill the very purpose of life itself.   Contrary to popular opinion: There is a reason for all events and things in this life -- but to understand the events, you must understand the Causal-Factors of Life (see The Causal Factors Of Life http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org ).   And while both faith-based believers and unbelieving (Atheists/Agnostics) will all agree that it would be virtually impossible to Know The Truth of the countless enigmas of life, there has always been the few who have opposed the majority opinion.   And these few have always been opposed, because the majority simply can't accept the reality that there exists a Force of Natural Law that inhibits them from perceiving and knowing the Truth of all things.   And while the Universal Voice of the disciple of the Truth -- i.e., the spiritual visionary and mystic -- has always been: "Only when you do and live as I have lived, can you come to know what I know" -- this wisdom of the few has always been rejected by the many.  

What is the conditions of your birth and station in life?   While many of the original Ebionite Nazirene followers and disciples of Jesus -- as well as the pre-Nicene Spiritual Christians -- could readily answer important questions that has alienated modern man from a higher reality that he is in denial of, most people who have been programmed with the modern Atheist Paradigm of Thought will conclude that their birth was fate or chance -- an accident -- or even luck.   Yet, in reality, none of these choices are accurate.   Whether you were born rich, poor, in a third world nation or with a silver spoon in your mouth -- or, somewhere in between -- your religion, your occupation, your country of origin, whether you are a male or female, your sexual orientation, liberal, conservative, libertarian, Atheist, Marxist, environmentalist, anarchist -- whatever your present station in life is, not only the manner you entered into this life was determined prior to your even being born -- but the Laws of God has scripted and preordained all of your possible choices and opportunities that have been presented to you -- as if you are walking through a labyrinth where the measure of your freewill is the determination of what choices you will make with the options that are presented to you.   When rightly understood, this world is God's Schoolhouse for his Prodigal Sons and Daughters -- and in the same way that when a child attends school there is a syllabus and curriculum in order to insure that the process of learning is accomplished in the proper steps, so too is the learning environment of this world.  

Jesus taught that not even a sparrow can fall to the ground apart from the Laws of God that brings about all  the events in this world -- i.e., “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will” (Matt 10:29 RSV) -- and yet, our modern Atheist-driven culture remains totally ignorant of the very Laws that move all things in this world.   With respect to the foregoing words of Jesus in the Adam Clark Bible Commentary, we find the statement: “The providence of God extends to the minutest things; everything is continually under the government and care of God, and nothing occurs without his will or permission”.   In relation to this verse under the heading of Providence in the Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary it is explained that: “Divine government is the continued activity of God by which He directs all things to the ends He has chosen in His eternal plan… He governs insignificant things (Matt. 10:29-31), apparent accidents (Prov. 16:33), as well as man's good (Phil. 2:13) and evil deeds (Acts 14:16). God acts in accordance with the laws and principles that He has established in the world. The laws of nature are nothing more than man's description of how we perceive God at work in the world. They neither have inherent power nor do they work by themselves. Man is not free to choose and act independently from God's will and plan; he chooses and acts in accordance with them. In His sovereignty, God controls man's choices and actions (Gen. 45:5; Deut. 8:18; Prov. 21:1). God's actions, however, do not violate the reality of human choice or negate man's responsibility as a moral being”.   Thus the question is posed in scripture: “Does evil befall a city, unless the LORD has done it?” (Amos 3:6 RSV).  And what does the scriptures state is the source of darkness and evil? “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things” (Isa 45:7 KJV).  

If the foregoing is true, then the question should be posed: What criteria and standards does God use in the administration of the Divine Plan and the Natural Laws which are portrayed in the conclusion that  "...He (God) governs insignificant things (Matt. 10:29-31), apparent accidents (Prov. 16:33), as well as man's good (Phil. 2:13) and evil deeds (Acts 14:16). God acts in accordance with the laws and principles that He has established in the world."    Which provokes the question: Just what are these "...laws and principles that He has established in the world" -- and how can man come to understand them?   And while it is clear that Jesus understood these Natural Laws -- even revealing them to his faithful disciples -- the fact that modern Christians are bound by faith in the unknown instead of the revelation of the sure Principles of Law, is a demonstration of the dogmatization of the Gospel.    

The Gospel states that if we truly follow in TheWay, that we will know the Truth that will set us Free (John 8:32) -- which provokes the question: Are the vast majority of those who call themselves Christians today free?  The knowledge that sets man free is neither dogmatic or philosophical -- but rather, a First-Hand Knowledge of all the enigmas that has perplexed mankind since the very dawn of time itself.   And this Truth is captured only by the Bible translation known as The Message which states: "Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him.  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.”  Which raises the question: When rightly understood, is the words of Jesus any different than the Universal Voice of the disciple of Truth which proclaims: "Only when you do and live as I have lived, can you come to know what I know"?   The key to the dilemma is found in the words: “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you...", only then can the knowledge of the Laws that inhibit all of mankind from perceiving and knowing the Truth be revealed to the disciples of Truth.    Which means that there is a Force of Law that inhibits those who fail to , "...live out" these teachings -- a Force of Law that inhibits them from knowing the Truth to the enigmas of life.         

An interesting statement is made in Genesis in the declaration: And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth" (Gen 9:12-13) -- but what does this mean?   Only when it is realized that within the spectrum of light, the rainbow is an octave -- portraying the reality that white light is comprised of seven colors -- can the meaning of the sign of the covenant be understood in practical terms.    And when rightly understood, what is called The Law Of Octaves is so holographically embodied in all the Laws of Creation and the Laws of Nature, that without the knowledge of what is portrayed as the meaning of "...the sign of the covenant", it will remain virtually impossible to understand anything of any substance and depth in the life that man is presently living.    In fact, that the vast majority of mankind is found to be totally uninformed with respect to the meaning of "...the sign of the covenant", is the very reason why they remain ignorant of the very far-reaching implications exerted by the Natural Laws upon every aspect of the life that we are presently living.   Which means that when the believer answers one of the enigmas of life with the words: You have to have faith -- and the unbeliever states that if there was a God, that the conditions of life would be different -- both the believer and the unbeliever are answering from the same perspective which is caused by a lack of understanding of "...the sign of the covenant" and the Law of Octaves.     And when rightly understood, no truer statement has ever been made which portrays the plight of the vast majority of mankind than this: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge ...Therefore, my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge" (Hosea 4:6; Isa 5:13).  Why?  This question is answered in the words: "Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths" (Isa 3:12 NKJ).  And if the proclamation in the Gospel of Thomas is true -- i.e., "...if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" -- then the very Essence of Religion IS the Science of Mind.   Therefore, an important element to Self-Knowledge, is to understand the Forces of Nature and the Laws that are exerting absolute control over every aspect of our Mind and Being.  

We dwell in a world that is held in balance by the Natural Forces and Laws that control every aspect of life.   And when rightly understood, it is man's ignorance of the Natural Forces and Laws that will inhibit any real progress towards the fulfillment of the very reason each of us is living the life that we are at present.   One of the long ignored and gravely misunderstood teachings of the Gospels and all scriptures, is that only the very few who have dedicated their lives to seeking Truth and travailing in TheWay, will possess the ability to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and what is biblically portrayed as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God (see In The House With The Lord).   The Book of Acts declares that from the One came the many -- and that "God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us" (Acts 17:27).  

Every day believers and critics of the Bible both read the words which they fail to comprehend the ramifications of.   And because they have no understanding of the consequences of remaining complacent and ignorant -- not comprehending the implications of the reality of the Law of Octaves -- they remain perpetually disenfranchised from not only the true meaning of the scriptures, but also of the realities of the very life they are presently living.   In the Gospel of Thomas declaration that "...if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" -- it is the individual's failure to understand the ramifications of the Law of Octaves upon their being and consciousness that makes it virtually impossible for them to understand anything beyond a very surface perception of reality.   And this is why it is declared: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12).  

It is said that the Law of Octaves was the very foundation of the whole of the work of Pythagoras -- it was an integral part of the philosophy of Socrates and Plato -- it was an essential part of the wisdom of Valentinus and the pre-Nicene Spiritual Christians -- made relevant to all the Natural Laws of Creation by John A. Newlands -- and was the foundation of the mystical teachings of G.I.Gurdjieff.   When Jesus said: "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled" -- the means by which the Law would be fulfilled, employed the Law of Octaves as a vehicle to bring the required Wholeness and Completion about.   

What this means is that whoever desires a very technical understanding of the Law of Octaves, there presently exists a massive body from many sources of teachings to which they can turn.   But what is missing is (1) a practical understanding of the Law of Octaves and its relation to the Sermon on the Mount; (2) which is the basis of why the second century Bishop Valentinus taught that the faith-based believer who remains immature in their understanding, has no real continuance beyond their physical death in this life; (3) and why it is declared in the Epistle of Peter and James that if the esoteric teachings of Jesus and the Gospel should become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error."   Why would the disciples and brother of Jesus make such a profound statement?   Why can't a seeker simply begin their search for Truth, and have it plainly revealed to them?   The answer is found in the statement: "There is a way that seems right to man, but its end is the way of death" (Prov 14:12) -- which parallels that of Paul who stated: “And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know” (1 Cor 8:2 NKJ).        

An excerpt from Manley P. Hall's book The Secret Teachings Of All Ages on the far-reaching ramifications of the Law of Octaves:

 

To Pythagoras music was one of the dependencies of the divine science of mathematics, and its harmonies were inflexibly controlled by mathematical proportions. The Pythagoreans averred that mathematics demonstrated the exact method by which the  good established and maintained its universe. Number therefore preceded harmony, since it was the immutable law that governs all harmonic proportions. After discovering these harmonic ratios, Pythagoras gradually initiated his disciples into this, the supreme Arcanum of his Mysteries.  He divided the multitudinous parts of creation into a vast number of planes or spheres, to each of which he assigned a tone, a harmonic interval, a number, a name, a color, and a form. He then proceeded to prove the accuracy of his deductions by demonstrating them upon the different planes of intelligence and substance ranging from the most abstract logical premise to the most concrete geometrical solid.  From the common agreement of these diversified methods of proof he established the indisputable existence of certain natural laws.

Having once established music as an exact science, Pythagoras applied his newly found law of harmonic intervals to all the phenomena of Nature, even going so far as to demonstrate the harmonic relationship of the planets, constellations, and elements to each other. A notable example of modern corroboration of ancient philosophical reaching is that of the progression of the elements according to harmonic ratios. While making a list of the elements in the ascending order of their atomic weights, John A. Newlands discovered at every eighth element a distinct repetition of properties. This discovery is known as the law of octaves in modern chemistry.  Since they held that harmony must be determined not by the sense perceptions but by reason and mathematics, the Pythagoreans called themselves Canonics, as distinguished from musicians of the Harmonic School, who asserted taste and instinct to be the true normative principles of harmony. Recognizing, however, the profound effect of music upon the senses and emotions, Pythagoras did not hesitate to influence the mind and body with what he termed "musical medicine." (The Secret Teachings Of All The Ages, by Manley P. Hall).

 

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 17t h cent u r y.  The Pythagorian 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.

 

 

  The Essence Of The Gospel: When the disciples who were portrayed as being set apart from the rest of the people -- who were said to be dwelling In The House -- asked Jesus why he taught the multitude of people in the enigma of parables -- wherein, each person's interpretation and understanding was in accord with their own mindset and thinking -- Jesus replied to his disciples: "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again, and it should be forgiven them" (Mark 4:11-12 ASV) -- and the term, "...lest haply they should turn again", is stated in reference to the Kingdom that can only be found within one's own mind and being, and the presence of the One Teacher therein.    What is clear is that the disciples who were portrayed as being In The House, were taught entirely different than the common people who were portrayed as being "outside".   In the Gospel of John the question was posed to Jesus as to why he would not show himself to the people who were "outside": "Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?" (John 14:22 NIV).   And in answering this question, the focus was on the necessity of obeying Jesus' Commands as presented in the Gospel: "Jesus replied, If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me" (John 14:23-24 NIV).   And perhaps even more important is the statement: "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now" (John 16:12 KJV). 

While the modern Christian Church dogmatically rejects the above teachings of Jesus and the Gospel statements, the Apostle Paul confirms what is being stated when he declared: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).  Paul then goes on and warns these believers of a natural organic mind who were baptized and dedicated to Christ: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS). Thus, these believers could only be taught the doctrine of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), because they were not yet spiritual men -- but rather, they were men of flesh -- infantile in their thinking and understanding -- and still very much “babes in Christ”.  Paul then explains that: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS).    And it is this same "milk of the Gospel" that is of an "elementary" nature, that is intended for entry-level Christians, that is still preached in our Churches today.   

When Paul warned that he could only speak to the believers at Corinth as "...men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS), what he was warning was that “Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil” (Heb 5:13-14 NIV).   Speaking of the milk of the Gospel which is intended for the entry-level believers of the simple faith, the Church Father Origen explained that it was  “preached in the Churches... for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief”.  

What the natural carnally minded believers had trouble in comprehending -- a reality that continues to plague Jewish, Christian, Muslim, the New Age, as well as Atheists, and the people of all religious faiths today -- is the reality that the religion preached by Paul was one of Spiritual Transformation.   Paul warned those he preached to about the "letter that killeth", that their religious ideas and doctrines were merely elementary.   And Paul could no more convey to the Christians of the simple faith the deeper realities of the soul and the Inner Kingdom, than he could feed a new born infant a steak dinner.   And in the same way that the infant is physically not prepared to chew and digest solid food, neither is the organic mind of man -- or the (Christian) believers of the simple faith -- even remotely prepared to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Kingdom of God.  

Paul attempted to convey this higher reality to believers who were unable to comprehend the Mysteries of God, because he was a man who was not only enlightened about the Kingdom within (see Gate Of Eden), but had himself been permitted entrance into the Kingdom -- as seen in his words that every Christian who beseeches the Lord today to enlighten their understanding, is in fact asking to see and hear “…things so astounding that they are beyond a man's power to describe or put in words…” -- and after they gaze upon these mysteries, what they have witnessed will be of such a profound nature that they will “…not [be] allowed to tell them to others” (2 Cor 12:4 TLB).  Which raises the profoundly important question pertaining to the nature of the Gospel teachings that to their own detriment remains ignored by modern faith-based Christians: Why would Paul not be permitted to tell the Christians of the simple faith about the profound realities that he witnessed?   For the very same reason why I write above that man in his natural organic state of mind is UnTeachable!

In the Martyrdom of Ignatius (first Century Overseer of Antioch), Ignatius speaks of himself as a disciple of John.  In his Epistle to the Ephesians he writes that he has been “initiated into the mysteries of the Gospel with Paul, the holy, the martyred”. In his Epistle to the Trallaus he speaks of the mysteries 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”.  Ignatius also writes that though he is aware of the mysteries, he is not yet “by any means perfect, nor am I such a disciple as Paul or Peter”.  What preacher of the gospel today warns his congregation that if he was to reveal the true teachings of the New Covenant -- the Gospel of God -- he would “inflict injury on you who are babes” in Christ?  What teaching of the Lord could a present-day preacher of the Gospel reveal that the congregation of believers are not “able to receive their weighty import”?  If Ignatius, or the other early Church Fathers who knew the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God were with us today, what profound mystery could they speak regarding the true teachings of Jesus that believers today would be “strangled by them”

 

In the same way that you began your present physical journey in this life as an embryo in your mother's womb -- and in order to be born, you had to evolve through the necessary stages of development which prepared you for physical birth -- when you were born and entered this world, you once again became an embryo through which you have to evolve through the necessary stages of development in order to bring about the next stage of birth that Jesus taught was necessary to enter into Life in the Kingdom.   When you were in your mother's womb, your body was developing to the level that it could sustain physical life -- but upon being born, you entered what can be portrayed as the womb of Mother-Earth that is the necessary environment where mental and spiritual development must be brought about (see Cosmic Ovum And Sperm).     But herein lies the problem as seen in the fact that, in order for the mind to develop, the person must have the necessary desire to seek Truth and the Kingdom -- they must possess the necessary freewill to make choices -- and they must be able to live out and experience the result of these choices.    Without freewill and the environment to live out and experience the result of our choices, the mind can never develop the necessary attributes that would enable mankind to reach and achieve his ultimate destiny.   And what Paul is stating in the above, is that it is impossible for man in his "natural" embryonic condition to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom -- and in Paul's own words, if man in his embryonic condition which Paul portrayed as the "natural" organic mind of man, was to be exposed to these higher concepts of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God, he would reject these concepts as utter "foolishness" -- “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ).    And when it is recognized that Paul was not speaking about non-believers -- but rather, he was speaking of baptized and committed Christians who he had personally taught the tenets of the Gospel which he portrayed as the "testimony" of Christ -- only in a full recognition of Paul's words can the faith-based Christian begin the journey to spiritual maturity.   Which means that a sincere and genuine Christian believer would immediately recognize the far-reaching implications and pose the question: If those who were taught directly by Paul were yet too immature and incapable of comprehending the true meaning of the Gospel, then how can the modern Christian who has been swayed by countless opinions and dogmatic doctrines, even begin to understand what those who were taught by Paul could not?   To the degree that the very disciples and the Lord's Brother declared that if the inner Gospel teachings were to become lost, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error."   Resulting in the fact that because the modern Christian faith-based believer has chosen to dogmatically ignore these profoundly important words emanating to them right out of the very pages of the New Testament which they claim to abide by,  they have imposed upon themselves and their children the choice of self-exile from the Kingdom -- and choosing instead to dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora of Ignorance.   Yet, if they understood the ramifications of the Law of Octaves, they would possess the ability to prevail over this condition of ignorance which Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), and the inner spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the Mysteries of the Kingdom could and would then be revealed to them.  

    

 

Precept Upon Precept: What Mystics such as Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, Valentinus, the original disciples of Jesus, and in more modern times G.I.Gurdjieff knew, that others do not, is that for every action there is not only a reaction -- but there are testing points built into the Laws of Creation that must be satisfied, in order to move beyond the barrier that these Laws present.   What this means is that in our development, you can't skip the rungs of the proverbial Jacob's Ladder.   In the same way that when an embryo begins to form in the womb, it's development is not haphazard, adhoc or piecemeal -- but rather, the forming of the physical body in the womb is controlled and in direct accord with the human DNA blueprint.   In like manner, when the body has passed through the first stage of birth and emerges out of the womb of the infants physical mother, this same exacting stages of development is instituted in accord with the Divine Design of the Natural Laws of Creation.   And this reality has been set forth in the words: "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).    And Paul explained this reality in the words: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS).   If the elementary teachings presented by Paul was the "milk" of the Gospel, then each level of maturity gained by climbing the rungs of Jacob's Ladder must be achieved incrementally -- i.e., "...For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little".  

Devine Design: The question should be asked? If the above biblical quotations are correct, what inhibits man from jumping the rungs of Jacob's Ladder?   When rightly understood, it is the Law of Octaves which is indigenous and organic to every aspect of the Divine Design and the Natural Laws of Creation, that directly inhibits us from comprehending what is above the rung of Jacob's Ladder that we are presently on.   When Paul came and taught the "milk" of the Gospel -- i.e., the "testimony" of Christ -- to the congregation at Corinth, he taught with the expectation that as they embraced the "milk", that they would be nourished to the degree where they could begin to receive what Paul portrayed as "solid food" -- i.e., “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food" -- and this "solid food" could only be discerned and received spiritually -- by a spiritually developed and matured mind -- which condition of maturity permits the seeker/disciple to be taught directly from the Logos/Son of God that dwells within each of us (see Learning From The True Prophet) -- at the very core of our being.    And this instruction received directly from the Source of all Truth, could only be in accord with the testing of the Law of Octaves which insured that we evolve to maturity "...precept ...upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little".  

Of even greater importance is the reality that when Jesus taught in parables -- i.e., "With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything" (Mark 4:33-34 NIV).   Which means that each person could only understand his teachings in accord with their own spiritual condition.   Wherein it is stated very plainly that the multitude of people who are portrayed as being "without", could not understand the true (spiritual) meaning of Jesus' teachings: "When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables.  He told them, "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding" Mark 4:10-12 NIV).   And once again the paramount question is: Why don't all hears understand the same?   Why would Jesus teach in the enigma of parables?   Why did the "...secret of the kingdom of God" belong only to the few?   And what Force of Law permitted the few who were portrayed as being In The House to comprehend the true meaning, while those who were "without" did not?
 

Every idle word -- how are they tracked
   

In the parable of TheCall to the Wedding Feast, when Jesus portrayed those who had failed to put on the required Wedding Garment as being cast into the sorrows of the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness), the reality portrayed was that of being bound to the very limited organic consciousness of the body-vessel -- i.e., bound by The Law and limited by human carnal reasoning and logic.    And when properly understood, the analogy of Plato's Cave (see Plato) portrays the plight of natural organic man as being held in a state of mental and spiritual limitation by the illusions of this world (see The Allusions Of The Forms Of Matter).    And when the Natural Laws that manifest all of Creation are properly understood, you will yourself begin on the journey towards an enlightened state of mind -- and this same reality is presented in the Gospel of Thomas where it states: (5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you..."    To recognize what is in your sight, you must be cognizant of the Laws that have formed the images of what you observe in the world -- images that are formed by impressing an aspect of mind into an allegorical symbol that is seen by man's organic senses.   Thus, what man observes in the world about him, is only a symbol that is holographically interpreted by man's physical senses -- and only when you begin to understand what you see, can you begin to escape the "outer darkness ...Plato's Cave".   

With respect to the underlying Laws of Creation, Gurdjieff used what is commonly known as the Enneagram -- which is said to be a merger of the Law of Three which I have portrayed as the Divine Pattern that permeates all of Creation, and the Law of Seven which is portrayed as the Law of Octaves.   The Enneagram  consists of nine points which is the Law of Seven with the two shock points added at the crucial interval points where the Laws test all movements.    The following is a quote from Ouspensky's In Search of the Miraculous: "Speaking in general it must be understood that the enneagram is a universal symbol. All knowledge can be included in the enneagram and with the help of the enneagram it can be interpreted. And in this connection only what a man is able to put into the enneagram does he actually know, that is, understand. What he cannot put into the enneagram he does not understand. For the man who is able to make use of it, the enneagram makes books and libraries entirely unnecessary. Everything can be included and read in the enneagram. A man may be quite alone in the desert and he can trace the enneagram in the sand and in it read the eternal laws of the universe. And every time he can learn something new, something he did not know before."  Take particular note of the words "...For the man who is able to make use of it, the enneagram makes books and libraries entirely unnecessary."    And it is this Knowledge of the Laws that the original core disciples of Jesus and TheWay understood, that made them warn others that there is only One Teacher -- which they portrayed as The True Prophet.    And this is demonstrated in the words of the Apostle Peter who is quoted in the Homilies of his disciple Clement: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him or from His disciples”.   

From the perspective of the Gospel teachings of the Sermon on the Mount, a more important diagram of the Enneagram and the progression of the Natural laws is presented in the diagram to the left.   When rightly understood, the teachings and concepts of the Sermon on the Mount in conjunction with the Consecrated Lifestyle which the original disciples of Jesus lived, was designed to invoke the Natural Laws for the seeker, and enable them to supercharge their pursuit of the Divine Manna (Knowledge) which is the necessary spiritual nourishment to gain entrance into the  Kingdom.    In the diagram to the right we can observe three crucial bending points and interval-shocks that must be mastered in order to evolve the self beyond "natural" organic limitations of development.   And it has been said that while to some degree nature provides for the first two shocks with respect to food and air, few people can even begin to grasp the required Impressions that is necessary to transcend organic physical limitations -- limitations that shackle man to virtually worthless lives where the whole of their thinking and mindset can be best portrayed as earth-bound.   When Jesus replied to why he taught the multitude of the people who were portrayed as being "without" only with parables that "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand..." (Mark 4:11-12 ASV) -- and Paul warned that “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS) -- it was because of the human dilemma that inhibits their understanding and comprehension, and keeps them earth-bound in their thinking and mindset.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Knowledge of the Natural Laws -- and especially the pattern of the Law of Octaves -- that the original core disciples of Jesus and TheWay understood, was the basis of their assertion to others that there is only One Teacher which they portrayed as The True Prophet.    And this is demonstrated in the words of the Apostle Peter who is quoted in the Homilies of his disciple Clement: Hence, O beloved Clement, if you would know the things pertaining to God, you have to learn them from Him alone, because He alone knows the truth. For if any one else knows anything, he has received it from Him...”.   In further explanation, Peter stated that the One Teacher and True Prophet is "...within the mind of every one of us".  Peter then warns the people: "...Wherefore seek Him first of all; and if you do not find Him, expect not that you shall learn anything from any other."   The problem is that only those who can overcome and prevail over the twisting of the Law of Octaves and resolve the condition of inherent organic human blindness, are able to tap into this inner Source of Knowledge that eliminates the need for the person from having to learn from books, teachers and the libraries of men. 

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

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

When Paul stated to the Christians who he had himself taught what he portrayed the "milk" of Gospel designed for "babes in Christ" who were too immature to understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospels -- and he was therefore forced to present a parabolic qusi-historical account to them which he called the "traditions" of Christ and the PHYSICAL Resurrection -- an elementary teaching that the Church Father Origen admitted was “...preached in the Churches… for the simpleminded and for the ears of the common crowd who are led on to live better lives by their belief” (Origen Contra Celsum) -- it is the natural twisting of the Law of Octaves that keeps the thinking and cognitive development of organic man "earth-bound", that prompted Paul to convey the reality to the faith-based Christians that they were incapable of comprehending the spiritual meaning of the Gospel when he stated: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 - see  Animal-Soul ).   The question is: Why can't the natural organic mind of man comprehend the spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God?  The answer is, because of the natural anomaly in his senses and organic cognitive reasoning that causes the whole framework of his thinking to remain anchored to the earth -- i.e., "earth-bound" -- that renders him incapable of comprehending anything beyond this three-dimensional reality that he does not at all understand the true nature of. 

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

 

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

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

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

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

When rightly understood, the same Universal Laws that control the physical, are also true in the mental and the spiritual levels of mind and being.  All conception in the physical requires the active essence of the male to be released in the womb of the female, where there is the opportunity of an embryo to be formed when the male and female essence combine into One.  The same Laws that control physical conception, are at work in the process of mental-conception -- and for the progression to arise up into the Center Column of the Tree of Life, there must be a merger of positive (male) and negative (female) to be at One.  But this can only be accomplished when the lower earthly-nature supports the upper heavenly-nature.  Which means that the lower earthly-nature must have been refined as personified in the "good ground" in the parable of the Sower and the Seed.   Therefore, all progression once the exchange has been made from the first (heavenly) into the second (earthly) sequence, is determined by the condition and refinement of man's lower nature.  Allegorically, this has been personified in the scriptures as the refinement of man's lower animal nature (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature),  and the construction of the Living Consecrated Temple of the body (see Animal Sacrifice And The Living Temple).    Thus, for the thought-progression to arise up the center and through the Tree of Life, man's lower nature must be refined and evolved to support his upper spiritual nature, and Adam (male) and Eve (female) must be joined together as "one flesh".  And this is portrayed in the teaching that was preserved in the Gospel of Thomas saying 22: "'These infants being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom.'  They said to him, 'Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?' Jesus said to them, 'When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom'."    

If the above diagram is the pattern of mind, then when the Key of Knowledge is properly applied to the scriptures, what you are presented is the blueprint of the mind.  Paul correctly portrayed the written text and narrative of the scriptures as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14).   Why?   Because the literal text of the scriptures is a quasi-historical facade that is necessary for the very limited instruction of the immature seeker -- with the true spiritual meaning remaining preserved and concealed beneath the garb of allegory (see An Inconvenient Truth).   The Church Father Origen explained that “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics).   Further explaining in De Principiis that: “Where the word found that things done according to the history could be adapted to these mystical senses, he made use of them concealing from the multitude the deeper meaning; but where in the narrative of the development of super-sensual things, there did not follow the performance of those certain events which were already indicated by the mystical meaning, the scripture interwove in the history the account of some event that did not take place, sometimes what could not have happened; sometimes what could but did not.”    

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

  The Octaves And The Narrow Gate: The (forbidden) fruit of the Tree of Duality represents the thoughts and impressions of the divided male and female columns of the Tree of Life.  And this is why it is written in the Gospel of Philip: “When Eve was still with Adam, death did not exist. When she was separated from him, death came into being. If he enters again and attains his former self, death will be no more”.  Adam and Eve is of course representative of the divided male and female columns of the Tree of Duality -- BUT, we must also recognize that the columns as represented by Adam and Eve, are standing on, and is therefore connected to the lower earth, and their heads are in the opposite upper polarity of air or higher spiritual areas of mind and being.   In biblical Greek, the word for air also portrays spirit.  In the portrayal of the four gates, each of the four paradoxical opposites (male, female, earth, and air), are each the product of Trinities comprised of male/female and (third-force) balance.  Which means that the twelve spheres of mind are the product of four trinities -- and it is the four points of balance that is representative of the four gates of the mind.  As explained in the above subheading (see Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness )

 

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

 

In the same way that every physical embryo that is conceived must be comprised of the equal chromosomes of male and female brought together and manifest in oneness, this same absolute balance must not only be achieved in the life-giving thoughts and impressions that is able to enter within the "narrow strait gate", but the substance of the lower earthly and upper heavenly elements of each  thought and impression must equally be balanced to manifest Wholeness in the thought and impression.  Only what is Whole can pass through the "narrow strait gate" in the Center of the Mind as patterned in the diagram of the Tree of Life --  and the Life-Giving thoughts and impressions that grow and evolve the mind beyond organic limitations of natural man and woman, must be made up of the four part essence of the male and female and heaven and earth opposites that are brought together in what can be portrayed as a Thought-Embryo that brings about the transformation of the mind though the the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.   Those thoughts that are not equally balanced by being comprised of the essence of the four gates of opposites -- as tested by the Law of Octaves -- cannot enter thought the "narrow strait gate", and are therefore miscarried and they are diverted outwardly, and the vital life-force is then lost into nature.  This loss of the vital life-force in the parable of the prodigal son is portrayed as the "riotous living" that squanders away the inheritance.    

The twisting of the Natural Laws at designated intervals of testing, inhibits the unbalanced advancement of impressions from progressing in a straight line -- turning the steps of the progression back to its source in the earth -- thereby inhibiting the progression from being elevated onto a higher plane that the person is incapable of intellectually functioning at.  Thus, unless you can prevail over the Laws at the interval where the testing takes place, you will fail to advance beyond the functional level where you are at.  Therefore, in order to prevail over the Laws at the interval of testing, you must bring into the equation the balance of the opposite polarities -- thereby manifesting the necessary Wholeness as personified in the Gospel statement: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).  Wholeness requires both opposite paradoxical polarities to be manifest in a unifying third-force that overcomes the twisting of the Laws -- which twisting causes the line of progression to be turned back to its source in the earth.  And it is this turning of the line of progression that can be personified as the (Satanic) Force that keeps our thinking and perceptive-vision earth-bound and carnal -- forcing us to perpetually repeat the sequences of progression until we are able to prevail over the Natural Laws which test our progress.  And this testing of the progressive advancement through the Natural Laws is personified in the statement: "Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say to you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able" (Luke 13:24).   In order to enter through the "strait gate", you must prevail over the twisting of the Natural Laws which test your actions and progression for Wholeness and Completion -- thereby enabling you to advance in a strait line -- passing through the "strait gate" -- instead of the twisting back to the earth-level of consciousness.  

In the above (see Foundational Process of Birth), the Gospel of Thomas saying 22 (see Saying 22) states: "...and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female ...then will you enter the kingdom" -- the Center Column of the Tree of Life is neither male or female -- but is the Third-Force Balance of the outer male and female columns of the Tree of Duality -- the eating of the fruit thereof, allegorically brings death to the eater.  Why death?  Because our Soul or True-Self dwells in Wholeness, and is not subject to the division of male and female.  Which means, that so long as we remain divided across the dynamic polarities of male and female, it will remain impossible for us to comprehend our own Higher Soul-Reality (see http://SoulSelf.org ).   As the Doe, Re, Me of the thought-octave progresses into the Foundation Sphere of the Mind as personified in the diagram of the Tree of Life, unless a Balance and Wholeness of the Male/Female Impressions is achieved which make them Complete, the twisting of the Law of Octaves will force the progression into one of the outer (male or female) columns -- and with the twisting into the outer columns of the Tree of Duality, the "strait gate" through the Center cannot be entered -- therefore, the paradoxical polarities of male and female cannot be merged and restored into the necessary Wholeness that will permit entrance up the Center Column and into what is personified as the Kingdom.   

The development of mind, spirit and the elevation of consciousness is an enduring process of mental deepening and expansion.  In the same way that our physical body was formed as orchestrated by the Natural Laws, so too is our Mind and Mental Bodies that surround physical form.   With the exception that in order for the Mind to form, it most be subject to the choices we make and the exercise of freewill.  As we begin to deepen our consciousness, we are able to tap into our twelve-dimensional Eternal-Self that is a Being of Light -- which we are an expression of that has been projected into this three-dimensional realm.  But the process of deepening our mind requires a great amount of work on self -- i.e.,  "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22).  In the Epistle to the Corinthians Paul commands to "…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) -- but how can such a reality be achieved?  To affirm this requirement as genuine, the Gospel account of Jesus warns: "But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment" (Matt 12:36 - see Judgment Day - Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being ).  Idle words can be defined as those thoughts or impressions which are not, and cannot, be returned to the Source through the "narrow strait gate". , which when tested for Wholeness by the Law of Octaves, are diverted and lost out into nature.  Which is why Paul tells us to "Pray without ceasing" (1Thes 5:17).   Perpetual prayer can be defined as positive thoughts of a higher expression that is able to be drawn up through the "strait gate" -- invoking the process of expansion and deepening of our Mind.

As Jacob/James, the brother of Yeshua/Jesus, the man who was the first leader of the New Covenant Church and was known as a true holy man, wrote that in order to fulfill the vision of the Gospel, one had to "…bridle the whole body" (James 3:2).  While this may appear totally alien from the perspective of the modern Christian who fully indulges in the unbounded excesses of our present-day cultural lifestyle, the Apostle Paul confirmed the validity of these words from a New Covenant perspective when he wrote of the necessity to "…beat my body and make it my slave..." (1 Cor 9:27 NIV).  Moreover, when Paul stated that salvation is by faith over the ritual works of the Law of Moses, what he portrayed as faith meant an entirely different thing to the Apostle Paul than what is being preached from our pulpits today.  And this can be seen in Paul’s commandment to all who would call themselves a Christian to "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5).  If the congregation of believers could simply have faith, without living a Consecrated Life set apart from the thinking and lifestyle of the people of this world, then Paul would not have warned the believers of the simple faith that: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13).   To mortify the deeds of the body takes work -- a great amount of work -- and this work cannot be accomplished through a static faith.   The problem is that these biblical commandments have absolutely nothing in common with the doctrine of faith that was promoted by Martin Luther in the Middle-ages.

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

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

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

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

The Laws Of Nature And The Law of Octaves: When our Constitutional Framers expressed the words, The Laws of Nature and Nature's God, they were making reference to both the Law of Three as manifest in the Divine Pattern of Creation, as well as the Law of Octaves which holographically is embedded throughout every aspect of all that exists.   When Deism is portrayed as "Deism ...is the standpoint that reason and observation of the natural world, without the need for organized religion, can determine that a supreme being created the universe" (see Deism) -- it was because the American Gnostics who were Deists, understood the higher reality of the Laws when overcome, is a harnessing of the Laws within one's own mind and being that, in the above words of Ouspensky,  "...makes books and libraries entirely unnecessary" .    Why would overcoming the Laws within one's self render "...books and libraries entirely unnecessary"?   Those who overcome the Laws and emerge out of what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being -- or the illusions of Plato's Cave -- are able to see and understand all things for what they truly are -- and are thus, travailing the path of the soul's journey of enlightenment.   And one of the primary concerns of our Deist Constitutional Framers, was creating an environment where the Natural Laws (of God) could function at a higher level, and permit the people to evolve to their higher potential that organic man simply could not even begin to comprehend.  

Though the pattern of the Law of Three and the Law of Octaves is holographically present throughout all of Creation, it is perhaps easiest to see, hear and observe in music.  Again let me stress the fact that while the manifest Laws-at-work can be demonstrated more easily in music, its far-reaching reality is prevalent throughout all aspects of life in this world and beyond.  The only difference, then, is that the same sequence of Law is more difficult to observe throughout the other aspects of life -- but quickly becomes apparent once one is cognizant of the pattern and sequence.   The same pattern that is found in music has been noted in what is known as Newlan's Law of Octaves -- i.e., is related to the arrangement of elements in the periodic table.  If elements are arranged in the order of their atomic weights, the eighth element starting from a given one is a kind of repetition of the first.  It is said that once Pythagoras recognized the relationship of music and math -- and established music as an exact science -- Pythagoras then applied his Law of harmonic intervals to all the phenomena of Nature.   He went so far as to demonstrate the harmonic relationship of the planets, constellations, and elements to each other.

If we look at the picture of a typical keyboard, what we see is the whole notes represented in the white keys, and the half-tones in the black keys.  Regardless of the fact of whether we understand music or not, what we should quickly recognize is the easily discernable fact that not every whole-note interval has a half-tone!  Why?  Why isn't there a half-tone between the third and fourth note on the keyboard and musical scale?  Also, why isn't there a half-tone between the seventh and eigth note of a musical scale?  Though the answer is very simple, the reality that is portrayed is so esoteric and beyond physical reality as we know it, that the most accomplished musicians cannot supply you with the answer to the enigma -- an enigma that is holographically true of all Laws -- and envelops every aspect of our lives and Creation.

Man's physical body is programmed for his spiritual failure: Our physical body is of the earth -- it therefore is not a vehicle that is the natural environment of man's higher soul and spiritual natures.  What this means is that if we are to manifest our higher natures, and rise above the inherent carnal limitations of our physical body/vessel, we will be required to make a conscious effort -- even a super conscious effort -- as we endeavor to overcome the Laws that are the ruling forces of this natural world.  Once again, our physical body is comprised of earth-matter -- and is not naturally acclimated to support man's higher aspects of mind and being.   And this is the reason why Paul warns that the "natural" mind of man cannot even begin to perceive or comprehend the higher reality of the soul and spiritual natures (see Mystery Of The Gospel) -- judging and rejecting these higher truths as utter "foolishness" and even heresy.   That the physical body and mind must be purified and transformed in order to gain access to those higher areas of mind that are able to perceive and comprehend man's higher soul and spiritual reality -- and the fact that this transformational process requires much effort and work on one's self -- is portrayed in the words of the disciples where they stated: "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22 NKJ).

If we are therefore bound to this physical realm by the natural Laws, then it is of the utmost importance for us to be cognizant of the effects of the Law as they interact with every aspect of nature and life.  If we pose the question: Is man's physical body imbued with the Laws that inhibit him from fulfilling his spiritual goals?  As we look around us at the natural world it is important that we be cognizant of the fact that we see the absence of strait lines.  The leaves on a tree or plant -- the outline of a mountain range -- the formation of rocks -- as well as the very physical bodies in which we presently dwell.  Strait lines do not exist in nature.  Why?  Because these Laws which we can hear and observe on a keyboard, cause all things to change direction in midstream.  In the same way that we cannot clear our minds and focus on a single thought, as we attempt to walk the path of spiritual enlightenment, the Laws of this realm will constantly work to lead us off the path to Life.

Returning once again to the keyboard: Starting from the left most key, we can see the first note, and between the first and second white keys is a half-tone which is represented by that black key.  Thus, the black key represents a half-step or half-tone between the two white keys which musicians call a sharp or flat.   The same is true with respect to the sequence of the second to third note.  Then, between the third and fourth note the pattern suddenly changes, and we can observe that there is no half-tone between these notes.  Why?  Because when we play the notes, the frequency of the fourth note is actually a half-tone -- and yet it artificially and falsely sounds to our physical hearing a whole-step increment.  Why?  Why does our ears hear a half-tone in the third to fourth sequence as if it is a whole, while this is not true in the first two intervals of an octave?

The enigma is caused by a twisting of the frequencies when they are played in sequence -- but this twisting is not only true of the musical scale -- but is holographically true and representative of a pattern which is indigenous to all such sequences of Law throughout all of Creation.  What this means is that while we can hear this Law at work in music, and observe this Law at work by virtue of the physical placement of the keys on a keyboard, this same pattern remains universal to all the Laws that control this world throughout every aspect of our lives.  The result is that when we think we are hearing what would be portrayed as a straight linear path -- our physical senses are subject to an illusion within the construct of the Laws --  resulting in the fact that we are inadvertently turned off the linear path without ever realizing that our direction has been altered by the natural sequence of Laws which immerse every aspect of this physical realm in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being, or the illusions of Plato's Cave.

In the first place we must understand that an octave is comprised of seven notes or sequences -- as is the pattern of the seven colors of the rainbow that make up white light.  As the seventh note is stepped into the eighth sequence, the first note of the sequence is double the frequency of the first, and is repeated as one octave higher than the initial note played.   What this means is that there is seven notes which complete the sequence before the first note is repeated one octave higher than the first -- as in the common musical sequence Doe Re Me Fa So La Ti Doe -- with the second Doe being the same note as the first, but only one octave higher.    For those who don't understand the musical scale, there is no variableness in the beginning and ending of the first sequence that makes up the octave, because the frequency of the eighth note which is also expressed in the term Doe which commences the next higher octave, is double the frequency of the first Doe.    And this is why whole notes only consist of a repetitive A through G sequence.

   Limits Of The Organic Mind - Linear Thought And Fragmentation: While from a human perspective it could be asserted that there is an inherent congenital defect in the hearing of man that causes him to falsely hear the interval between the third and fourth sequences of an octave as if it were a whole-step -- regardless of the fact that it is a half-step in the frequencies of the musical sequence -- in failing to understand the reality and higher purpose of this long ignored phenomena, it is as if mankind continues to dwell in a self-imposed Dark Ages that has gravely inhibited his progress.   In fact, all the poverty, all of man's sufferings, violence, conflict and bestiality that men inflict upon other men, is all the result of man's self-imposed ignorance of the knowledge of the Laws.   On the other hand, Mystics and those who have long understood the movement of the Laws of Creation have known that this interval between the third to fourth sequence is in fact a testing point of the Laws -- a test for Completeness and Wholeness to see if we are prepared to move beyond that point in the physical and mental limitations of the body-vessel.   But it has been virtually impossible for natural organic man to make any real progress beyond the level where he is presently at, because pseudo-intellectuals reject the wisdom that has been presented to them.   The biblical authors all warned that man's higher soul and spiritual reality as set forth in what was portrayed as the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God, was beyond the comprehension of organic man in his natural (earthly-carnal) mindset (see Mystery Of The Gospel) -- and yet, both man's religious and political leaders have long ignored their witness.  

In the same way that man is deaf and oblivious to the fact that the third to fourth and seventh to eighth sequence of the musical scale that he hears in not a linear progression as he imagines, he in like manner remains oblivious to the fact that both his line of vision and his rational linear thought that he relies upon to evaluate his experiences in this world, is subject to the same testing and twisting that is easily demonstrated in his hearing.    What this means is that organic man's rational thinking is totally unreliable to evaluate what he sees and evaluates, because what appears to be linear, is an illusion that he is not at all even aware of.   In the same way that the listener is not aware of the frequency shifts when the notes of an octave is played back to him -- and what sounds to his physical ears to be a linear incremental progression is not at all true -- the same is true with respect to both his vision and what he would consider rational thought and reasoning.  

The result is man's inherent blindness and suppressed rationale that inhibits his ability to properly evaluate what he thinks he sees and understands.   Why?   Very simply, because of the carnal blindness inflicted upon man by virtue of the organic limitations of the body-vessel -- and when these natural organic limitations are understood, the reality which confronts man is seen in his inability to grasp only a mere fragment of what he sees and comprehends.   And perhaps the perfect example of the problem is presented in a poem by John Godfrey Saxe which is based upon a fable told in India.   It is a good warning about how our inhibited sensory perceptions and limited organic logic can lead to some serious misinterpretations -- especially when the investigations of the component parts of a whole, and their relations in making up the whole, are inadequate and lack co-ordination.

 

It was six men of Indostan, To learning much inclined, Who went to see the Elephant (Though all of them were blind), That each by observation, Might satisfy his mind

The First approached the Elephant, And happening to fall Against his broad and sturdy side, At once began to bawl: "God bless me! but the Elephant  Is very like a wall!"

The Second, feeling of the tusk, Cried, "Ho! what have we here, So very round and smooth and sharp? To me 'tis mighty clear,  This wonder of an Elephant, Is very like a spear!"

The Third approached the animal, And happening to take The squirming trunk within his hands, Thus boldly up and spoke: "I see," quoth he, "the Elephant Is very like a snake!"

The Fourth reached out an eager hand, And felt about the knee. "What most this wondrous beast is like, Is mighty plain," quoth he; "'Tis clear enough the Elephant, Is very like a tree!"

The Fifth, who chanced to touch the ear, Said: "Even the blindest man Can tell what this resembles most; Deny the fact who can, This marvel of an Elephant Is very like a fan!"

The Sixth no sooner had begun, About the beast to grope, Than, seizing on the swinging tail, That fell within his scope, "I see," quoth he, "the Elephant, Is very like a rope!"

And so these men of Indostan,  Disputed loud and long, Each in his own opinion,  Exceeding stiff and strong, Though each was partly in the right, And all were in the wrong!

The Moral:  So often in theologic wars, The disputants, I are between the Rails of utter ignorance,  Of what each other mean, And prate about an Elephant, Not one of them has actually seen!

From the enlightened perspective of the Mystic, the inherent problem of human blindness is even greater than what is presented in the above fable.  The 90th Chapter of what is known as The Gospel of the Nazirenes preserves this higher reality that plagues organic physical man: "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."

Like the blind men, what is presented in the above Gospel quotation is the reality that by Law, different men perceive the same truth differently -- and that each perception of the one truth is both valid, and fragmented.   And in understanding the Laws and their effects upon organic man, the Deist framers of the Constitution insured that each position based upon each individual man's perception, was protected.    Our Constitutional framers understood that because each man's perception, understanding and mind is segmented -- and that in his organic natural condition, each man is only able to see mental forms and allegorical symbols (see above The Allusions Of The Forms Of Matter) that have been impressed into the images of nature -- that each individual man's perception is not only representative of a valid perspective even though it is different than that of other men -- but that each man's fragmented perspective is an integral part of the Whole.   But because each man's perception and understanding is a fragment of the whole, few men possess the intelligent perception to realize the fact that his rational linear reasoning is totally insufficient to evaluate what his very limited perception and organic consciousness is presenting to him.   And it was the realization of this reality that organic man was inherently blind to by virtue of the limitations of his physical senses and consciousness, that was expressed in the shock of Einstein (see Science Proves Religion) when he stated: “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.”   Which confirms what Einstein wrote in analysis 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 (quoted in M. Capek, The Philosophical Impact of Contemporary Physics) -- and the words of physicist Walter Thirring who wrote 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(Urbausteine der Materie).  

What this means is that only the Mystic who has endeavored to consciously develop his latent intuitive spheres of mind, possesses the ability to observe and comprehend what man's very fragmented linear-rational (intellectual) thinking is totally blind to -- which enables the Mystic alone to perceive the source and underlying causes in the Etheric Field that is the source of what man perceives in the forms of matter.   Thus, Mystics have long warned mankind that the reality of this world of appearances is not at all what is seems to be through the perception of man's physical eyes and senses -- i.e., that there is a great deal more that man's senses and perception cannot detect or even imagine.   And this same enigma of the limits of man's physical senses was noted by Albert Einstein who concluded with respect to man's dilemma when he stated: "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."    And what the Mystic has warned is that because man's religious, philosophical, cultural and educational institutions "...have created a society that honors the [rational] servant and has forgotten [and suppressed the development of] the [intuitive] gift" -- thus, blinding mankind to the underlying cause of all that man sees and experiences in this world, man remains perpetually lost and blind in what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- or what the philosopher portrayed in the analogy of the illusions of Plato's Cave (see Cave) .

While the concepts portrayed in the words "all you need is love" AND "look within and find God" are true, unless the necessary condition of mind is present, the concepts are in the vast majority of cases nothing more than Empty Rhetoric.  Why?  Because the LOVE that is portrayed in the Gospels requires the condition of Wholeness of Mind -- 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) -- and the Condition of mind that Jesus was making reference to is portrayed in the statement: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect (Matt 5:48).  And when understood, the ability to "look within and find God" also portrays a condition of mind that is controlled by Natural Law that monitors and interacts with every aspect of mankind's development.  In the below article I portray the Natural Law as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that monitors and interacts with our every thought, desire and action to bring about our evolutionary development from the Alpha of ignorance to the Omega of Enlightened Light.  And the Key to understanding our development, is what can be portrayed as The Law Of Octaves that tests our every Impression and Thought for the necessary Wholeness to bring about the transformative process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening.   

It is said that the Law of Octaves was the very foundation of the whole of the work of Pythagoras -- it was an integral part of the philosophy of Socrates and Plato -- it was an essential part of the wisdom of Valentinus and the pre-Nicene Spiritual Christians -- made relevant to all the Natural Laws of Creation by John A. Newlands -- and was the foundation of the mystical teachings of G.I.Gurdjieff.   When Jesus said: "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled" -- the means by which the Law would be fulfilled, employed the Law of Octaves as a vehicle to bring the required Wholeness and Completion about within the consciousness of all of mankind.  While the Enlightened Deists who formed our Constitutional Framework of government proclaim the "Laws of Nature and Nature's God", few modern Americans have any understanding of the Natural Laws that brought about what has been portrayed as American Exceptionalism (see Understanding The Intelligent Universe - The Clock Maker vs Jalopy Universe  http://CausalFactor.Nazirene.org#ClockMakerUniverse ). 

Unbeknown to most people, the vision and words of Nikola Testa has actually come to pass when he said: “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”  The problem is that the vast majority of scientists are only capable of thinking in a linear three-dimensional mindset that is incapable of Abstract Reasoning.   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 NOW 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 The Findings Of The Physicist http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#FindingsOfThePhysicist ). And as demonstrated (see We Are All Connected Within The Mind OF God http://KnowThyself.Nazirene.org#WeAreAllConnected ), 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-minded fundamentalist 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? 

While Giordano Bruno was bunt at the stake for teaching Christians the Original Gospel concepts and teachings that were suppressed by the Church (see The Restored Gospel Teachings http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ), the account of Philip K. Dick reveals to seekers the purpose of the allegorical catalysts used in the scriptures to connect the person we are in this world with our Higher Source of Being.   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 recall.   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."

The Fundamentalists who are of a physical-only three-dimensional mindset, can only grasp the text of the written words of the scriptures.  But the scriptures were composed by mystics who viewed this world as a prison that held mankind captive in a world of shadow-images as portrayed in the analogy of Plato's Cave (see Plato's Cave http://OuterDarkness.Nazirene.org#Cave ).

 

 

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). 

 

 

 

 

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)."

In the recently discovered Gospel of Thomas it is written: (12) The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?" Jesus said to them, "Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being."   So to once again restore the teachings of TheWay which is today known as Christianity, the Lord has sent Jacob/James, the Brother of Yeshua/Jesus, back into the world in order to guide the faithful flock into the Truth, the Light, and the Kingdom within (Luke 17:20-21).   It is there that my brother Yeshua/Jesus awaits you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Reincarnation - The Key To Christianity:    
 

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

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

 
 
 

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

 
 

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

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

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