A special thanks to funny-mentalist Pastor Brad A. Utley
From Brad Utley, I learned to "try anything" and I learned forgiveness.
Yes! "try anything", except read the Bible properly, as in Mythologically instead of it's literal destructive form.
Well, at least he learned forgiveness, so since he has learned forgiveness, he will have to now forgive me, for writing this piece on him.
Dedicated to Brad A Utley, the fellow that gave a King James Bible in 1979 when I got out of the Navy, he lives in Broken Arrow Oklahoma, and is a LITERALIST bible preacher.
Here is that Bible, Brad gave me, as you can see I tore into it, dissecting it, circumcising it, until I finally had the clear picture.
These photos were taken in 2009 of that very bible.
Maybe he should have never given it to me, because I spent the next 25 years reading it, and results are here on this blog.
I took it in one direction, and he took it the complete opposite direction. The same book that enslaved his mind with religious DOGMA, believing in a resurrected godman, freed my mind, by understanding that the sun/Jesus travels through the circuit of the zoadiac each year, moving from virgo to Leo (above, and within you, it's called the Kundalini), what irony.
Where he sees a Moses stretching forth his hand and opening a sea, so that the Israelites can escape the Egyptian Chariots, I see a Mythological spiritual story, that could not, nor did it EVER happen. Where he sees a TALKING snake and a talking donkey, I see a mythological spiritual story, describing things that go on in one's own mind. Where he sees eight people on a large boat taking care of forty million animals, birds, insects and so on, I see a Mythological spiritual story, describing one who has overcome his/her own animal passions.
It took me awhile to see and understand these spiritual truths, the knowledge of truth came at a price, nothing else is worthy, it's called the pearl of great price, the price is time and brain-storming, which is absolutely necessary, in order to understand ancient scripts like the Bible.
What about it Brad, what does this verse mean? Of course you would read it LITERALLY, and totally miss the point. However I know what it means.
2. "Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys, an whose emission was like that of horses." Ezekiel 23:20
Truth ONLY comes from reading, learning and understanding, it doesn't come any other way.
It comes from reading the Bible combined with hundreds of other ancient scriptures, Esoteric Mystery Teachings and the Mythology of Joseph Campbell.
The result of this Dogma, is that masses of people all over the world live their lives in fear and guilt because they simply think differently then their religious controllers, and though they show up on Sundays and play their part, within their minds they yearn for the things the controllers say are evil.
It's hard not to conclude that religion is simply an accepted form of mass insanity. They don't use reason, they use blind faith, and it's purely psychopathic. Religion is taking 40 steps backwards for each individual and the world. It's a Leviathan, middle age superstition, a mind warping, consciousness dividing virus.
Religion is swimming directly into the sharks mouth. The world is a giant sleeping Lazarus, and religion is the mass hypnotist, along with TV commercials, actually religion is nothing more than one long running TV commercial selling a snake oil cure all, on the idea of salvation, because you were born a sinner. Please!!!!
Kirk to Scotty! Scotty here! I'm ready to Beam up. Aye Captain!
Energizing transporter now.
What does Brad Utley and Mel Gibson have in common?
Quite a lot, they are both brainwashed religious fanatics, that haven't a clue.
Hey Brad!, if you happen across this blog and find yourself in a reading mood, take some advice and read a couple of Joseph Campbell books, it'll do wonders for your understanding of things, my old brainwashed friend. I don't even know if he's got a computer, or even if he knows how to turn one on, or use a mouse.
Apparently Brad has a mission to convert those poor lost heathen Masons to Christianity, please leave those Masons alone, they are not bothering anyone, in fact they own and operate the Shriners hospitols and burn units for children, and have helped more needy children than most all other hospitols put together.
OH! by the way Brad, the Masons know all of this, they are simply keepers of the ancient knowledge of the SUN god story, they are NOT evil my old brainwashed friend, so leave them poor Masons alone for Christs sake.
"thou shalt not spill the seed of life on the ground"
Why? Because it's a SIN!
THE KEY is that the method of operation is the seed and the harvest this is gods will and this is gods kingdom duet:17 Matthew:6 mark:4:26 the kingdom of god is seed and harvest time the law of progression the seed all the way to fruition. The law of receiving eyes, ears, mouth speak out until the words are minted in your heart then planting seeds will bring harvest. this is the kingdom of god.
The seed is the WORD of god, it is the kingdom of god, and spilling the WORD, or seed on the ground doesn't mean what you said, spilling the seed on the ground is exactly what you have done with god's word, because you failed to understand, you have missed the mark, and instead have read the Bible Literally instead of mystically, and therefore, since you haven't a clue as to what it says, you have commited a great sin, by spilling god's word (seed) on the ground, still living off of your first three chakras, maybe the first one), thereby never allowing gods "seed" (word) to spring forth within in your own nature, and bringforth good crops for harvest, because that requires that evil Eastern Meditation stuff you know. Oh yes! it's in the bible, you should try reading it someday, actually you don't have to, just read your old friends Blog, then you'll get it.
You are actually spilling your seed on the ground everyday that you go to church and pray in public places, the ground is just a symbol for the lower mind, keeping gods word (seed) forever bound up in your own lower nature.
Religious nutters are like the ASS who turns a millstone.
An ass which turns a millstone did a hundred miles walking. When it was loosed, it found that it was still at the same place. There are men who make many journeys, but make no progress towards any destination. That's you Brad! No progress.
When evening came upon them, they saw neither city nor village, neither human artifact nor natural phenomenon, power nor angel. In vain have the wretches labored.
What alienation was to the forefathers of Israel, barrenness was to the women. If the Wilderness was where the soul was made ready for the seeds of God consciousness to take root, barrenness was the pattern for the wives of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Having known barrenness they could conceive "the first fruits" of the new potential for consciousness.
First there was Sarah who, at age ninety, laughed when told she would conceive. Then there was Rebecca for whom Isaac "prayed to the Lord because she was barren." And even though Jacob fathered the twelve sons who became the twelve tribes, Rachael, the only true love of his life, was also barren. Finally, however, she did give birth first to Joseph and later to Benjamin.
And although Jacob dearly loved Benjamin, it was a love saddened by the death of Rachael at his birth. Again of Hannah it was said that "the Lord had closed her womb," but opened it when she fervently prayed for a son, and Samuel was born.
In the New Testament, Elizabeth was past childbearing years when John the Baptist was born. In each of these biblical cases barrenness preceded the conception of a child who became a noteworthy servant of God.
Symbolically understood, barrenness is the soul empty of self and surrendered and receptive to God's will. It is therefore a soul within which the seeds of spiritual awareness can come to fruition, if you are in meditation that is. otherwise all bets are off. And if you haven't spilled the seed of life on the ground, trampled on it with the lower mind, the (literal) reading of god's word.
But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 2 cor. 3:14
Oh! And one more thing, God does not live in a separate Universe, separate from us filthy human beings, because the very fact that you have limited God to a specific location, you have reduced the creator to other than omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent. Shame on you. I would pray for you, but as you know prayer doesn't work, you see God doesn't want a petty begging human whining on about his petty condition in the world. No!, He wants you sitting still in meditation, it's called Silence and thunder, first is the silence, then comes the thunder.
"In him, (that's God for Brad), you live, move and have your being"
Yep, you live in HIM, how do I know, because the Bible tells me so, see above.
Mat 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: jesus' statements were all PARABLES Brad, not LITERAL, so guess what, you get to keep your coat and your cloak, if someone asks you for it, hey that's good news isn't it? And you don't have to pluck out your right eye either, if it offends you, because that's a PARABLE also, and hey that's great news too, because that means that you can enter into hell with two good eyes instead of one.
Pro 26:7 The legs of the lame are not equal: so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools.
The second of the seven deadly sins;
SLOTH: Stagnation. A person can lay around all day and not be slothful.
By the same token, a person can jog and keep himself busy and Be exceedingly slothful. Sloth is stagnation, the inability or refusal to change, move on, flow on in life, and harmony (mentally).
Slothfulness, is not grasping the higher meanings of the bible allegory, because of your slothfullness (laziness) in understanding, you will have to continue eating pork and fish without scales. And that's a SIN. Man you keep sinning, what's up with that?
Brad if you're still preaching, stop it at once, you are destroying brain cells at an alarming rate, never, never destroy a free spirited mind with the Bible. Preacher, leave them kids alone.
Take it from me Brad;
Sailors are always smarter than Army grunts.
To sum up the entire Bible in a short script.
The entire bible, the war between the lower ego mind and the higher god or christ mind.
Religion=hasn't a clue!
The whole bible=mythology
old testament god=higher consciousness killing out the ego.
The seven days of creation, the building of the new consciousness, the kundalini has risen through the six chakras all the way to the pineal gland, and the seventh is the crown chakra that opens once the pineal gland is lit.
Adam and Eve, the RIGHT and LEFT hemispheres of the brain, the original duality, the duality of mind, the body as opposed to the light or soul.
The serpent speaks to EVE
When our inner Kundalini awakens it turns our awareness inward to our Source. It offers us an opportunity to uncover who we are, where we come from, and where our true Home is. It is the beginning of the spiritual journey that enables us to regain our multidimensional consciousness.
Cain=thoughts from the left brain
Abel=thoughts from the right brain
The flood, the second stage of meditation in Greek
The Ark is the brain, and the animals represent the human animal passions.
eight souls on the ark=the seven seals open, and the eigth is god consciousness.
All of the Animal sacrifices and craziness especially in the book of leviticus and throughout the Bible, are stories describing each one of us giving up our animal nature upon the altar of god, the higher conscious state, all written in heavy duty symbolism.
All of the ITES and STINES, and everyone single person or tribe killed in the old testament, are all of the negative thoughts that flow out of the lower ego mind. (satan). The left carnal mind.
All organic matter is composed of infinitesimal lives, and a higher intelligence mould such life-infused matter into form. Within Man are lesser lives of sentient beings. The cells in his body are beings endowed with consciousness, although the nature of their consciousness can only be conjectured. Man, himself, is analogous to the cells in his body.
These represent all of the nations, that the bible refers to, it is referring to all of the cells of the body as well as all of the thoughts that flow out of the mind.
The new testament
The crucifixion of the lower self upon the cross of matter.
Anyhow, when a person makes the decision to accept the (teachings of) Christian Christ and to reform his or her character then the process of 'The Last Supper' begins as the errant ego is trued to spiritual principles and is subsequently and gradually 'devoured' (consumed) by the emerging inner light of Christ, in meditation
Christ's words at the Last Supper, "This is my body and this is my blood" (referencing the bread and wine) and then proceeding to consume the bread and wine is a metaphor for the process of the indwelling light (Christ) consuming the base animal passions and fears and also rectifying aberrant behaviour.
This gradual process is what is also meant by 'giving birth to Christ' (an 'inner birth') in a virginal (emerging purity) way that is other than an act of physical procreation. The successful completion of this process produces a 'rebirth' that is accomplished by 'water' (flowing with God's plan) and 'the spirit' or the indwelling Christ.
Jesus parables=a spin off of Buddhist koans
four gospels=four cardinal points of the zodiac
12 disciples 12 signs of the zodiac
The book of revelations, the world being destroyed by fire, the opening of your seven seals in meditation, commonly called kundalini yoga. The renewing of the mind.
As Paul said in Romans 12:2 " be transformed by the renewing of your mind".
Jesus sitting at the right of the father, the right hemisphere of the brain is 100 percent open.
The fire is the electromagnetic energy rising from the solar plexus (jesus), energizing the brain, as the physical, the intellectual and the emotional go into the furnace heated seven times. And the fouth horse rider being the spiritual part, that takes control of the faculties, now (christ, krishna, buddha etc...
This is the world being destroyed in the book of Revelations.
The chakras are located on the surface of our etheric body. Each of the seven chakras is in a different location along the spinal cord and each chakra influences a different endocrine gland and nerve plexus.
Chakras one, two, and three the Unconsciousness. The fourth and fifth chakra, Consciousness and the sixth and seventh chakra, Super conscious. See Ark of the covenant.
The 'inner Christ' or spirit or soul (a genie in the lamp) is usually located (initially) in a condition of dormancy having yielded to the (relative) animal based human ego. This condition is other than a 'conquering' but rather, an accommodation.
hell=living life wholly off of the the physical, the intellectual and the emotional nature.
heaven=the higher consciousness or renewed mind.
That's the very short of it, without all the fluff.
God=photon or greater light.
melchizedek=dark matter or weak electromagnetism, wimps
jesus=the energy from the sun, and is the energy in your solar plexus.
joshua= the higher consciousness killing out the lower mind
egypt, babylon etc...the lower ego mind
Delilah=the lower animal passions
Sampson=the higher consciousness
Abraham, Solomon, IsRaEl, Jew=higher mind, one who has overcome.
Well, you get the picture!
Revelation is the story of humanity being restored to SELF. It is paradise lost and then paradise found.
There is no enemy other than an uncontrolled mind in this world (BP 7.08.10). Therefore, one should first try to control and conquer this enemy by regular practice of meditation with a firm determination and effort. All spiritual practices are aimed towards the conquest of the mind.
The mind indeed is the cause of bondage as well as liberation of the living entity. The mind becomes the cause of bondage when controlled by modes of material Nature, and the same mind when attached to the Supreme becomes the cause of salvation (BP 3.25.15).
The mind alone is the cause of salvation as well as bondage of human beings.
THE MYTHOLOGICAL BOOK OF REVELATION
A mythological story such as the Book of Revelation when interpreted literally, becomes a catalyst for fear. People not only become frightened and find themselves subjected to bizarre religious groups, but in addition the very same mythological tales of mind psychology become the basis of violence and killing upon the planet earth.
The Biblical book of Revelation is Greek mythology. Greek mythology totally misunderstood by the religious pundits of this era who use it to frighten and coerce their followers and the rest of us as well.
I don’t know if you have ever heard of Blaise Pascal.
He was a 17th century French mathematician, philosopher, and theologian.
"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction."
Being part of religion is HELL, the mind controlled by SATAN (the pastor or priest).
Everything is UPSIDE isn't it?
"I have given man the mind of an animal til seven times passes for him"
We are animals, that's the evil part, it us that causes all the evil, not any God.
When the sky rolls up as a scroll within each human mind, then that's one animal mind that risen to Mt. Ararat, the higher conscious state.
One mind at a time, it is the only way.
Not openly in synagogues and a local church. "when ye pray enter within thy closet and pray thy father which is in secret" " I make darkness my secret place"
The darkness of meditation, with the eyes closed, and in a darkened room.
"And there I will meet you in the UPPER room" The higher mind.
It's not a question of why the world is here, or why the Universe exists or who made it, but it is a question of what do I do.
And that question has been thoroughly answered.
The answer is WITHIN you, locked within the logic circuits of your own brain.
The Greeks said;
"Man know thyself"
There is only one way to KNOW SELF, and that is to GO IN YOURSELF.
By Bill Donahue of Hidden Meanings
WERE WE CREATED BY GOD ?
NO! Somebody forgot to wear a condom or practice coitus interruptus
Of course not. You are the sum of 46 chromosomes. Twenty three contributed by your father from his sperm, and twenty three contributed by your mother from her egg.
Those chromosomes take care of what you look like, the color of your skin, hair and eyes, the shape of your nose and even your intelligence.
You are born with the genetics which are the result of the chromosomes, and added to that are, the traditions of your family, your church, your friends, your job, your school, the government, and social institutions you were raised in, and by the time the neurons fire in your brain to respond to all of these, you are finally a creature of the earth.
God had nothing to do with it.
If your mother or father married someone else, you could have never existed on this earth because only the combination of their chromosomes could make you. Just think of that, if either one of them changed their mind about their marriage you could never have happened.
No other couple in the world could have contributed the chromosomes in the exact order that made you. So God has nothing to do with creating us. We are created by the people and the institutions of the earth.
This is a very important point when we move to consider what happens after we die. It is also important in considering who we really are, and what is the purpose for our being here.
As you can see if our bodies and actions are of the earth, what part of us is not and what is the purpose for that parts existence.???
The temple is actually the human brain. The rod is the spine, and it bloomed almonds because as the Kundalini energy moves up the spine or rod, it reaches the laryingeal area and touches something called amygdala which is the almond.
Near the area of the throat is the amygdala or the almond.
The rod blooms almonds through meditation, as the chakras (almonds) are energised and one is then enlightened to speak and lead others to the inner pathway of light.
Everything has a wonderful meaning.
Your spine with the almonds (chakras) that have bloomed (opened) with Jesus (solar plexus energy)
your brain covered by the cerebrum, the Cherubim's of the bible
your SEVEN seals, or Chakras, the candle stick is the spine
You see the ark never was lost, its just that the bible hides behind religious words, concerning things that are scientific and Anatomical facts.
His disciples said to him: On what day will the kingdom come? Jesus said: It cometh not with observation. They will not say: Lo, here! or: Lo, there! But the kingdom of the Father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it.
Jesus said: If those who lead you say unto you: Behold, the Kingdom is in heaven, then the birds of the heaven will be before you. If they say unto you: It is in the sea, then the fish will be before you.
But the Kingdom is within you
What is LIGHT? That is hidden inside the fleshly body, the gross material flesh, sometimes referred to as the flesh pots of Egypt in the bible. Egypt is just a symbol of the lower mind for obvious reasons, just go there some day.
Back to the original verse.
So lets look at it
Isaiah 13:15-18 If God can find you, he will thrust you through, smash your children to pieces before your eyes, and rape your wife.
Now of course this has to be mythology, even if the bible didn't have 50 some odd verses, that says that it is mythology, because the bible says that god is LIGHT, now how can LIGHT rape your wife?
It can't obviously.
John 1 "I declare to you that god is LIGHT" declare means now I'm talking not in a dark speech.
So what does it mean?
remember the key!
Here in this verse you are the LOWER MIND, When god finds you, he will thrust you through.
Swords are symbols of spiritual power, all that it is saying, is that when you have reached a certain point in your meditation, God (LIGHT) will kill out your lower mind thought patterns.
smashing your children to pieces. As the energy in the solar plexus begins to rise to the fourth or heart chakra or seal. These thoughts that create a stream of children or lower thoughts will be killed.
your children are all of the off spring (Negative lower thoughts) that have been given birth from your original negative thinking.
God rapes your wife, why? because here the mind that has given birth to these lower carnal thoughts is your wife, you have fornicated with her and have born these off spring. these thoughts arose out of the E-motional nature. (Energy in motion) E-motions.
god will rape your wife, in other words, god will impregnate your lower ego mind, with the power of the higher light, thus making your thoughts become that of a higher nature or higher order.
This is how to interpret all biblical stories and scriptures.
The characters change, and the stories are different, but they are all referencing this war between the two minds. This mythology is the method that the ancient mythicists decided to use to write the story of enlightenment, which is what the bible is.
The Baghavad gita and the Upanishads are books of mythology very much like the bible, in fact they are the very same teaching. The Greek mythologies as well as the Egyptians are also the same mind stuff.
The Letter Kills
The Bible warns us not to be literalistic. "We should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter." (Romans 7:6) "The letter kills, but the spirit gives life." (2 Corinthians 3:6)
Jesus Himself always spoke in parables (Matthew 13:34) and figurative language (John 16:12,25), and when His disciples interpreted His sayings literalistically, He said, "You people of little faith? Don’t you understand?" (Matthew 16:7-12)
Paul wrote that the whole Old Testament tells of Christ, but with those who do not see this hidden meaning "their minds are blinded"—it is as if a veil covers the Old Testament when they read (1 Corinthians 3:13-16). When Jesus’ disciples failed to see that hidden meaning in the Old Testament, He called them "fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken" (Luke 24:25).
Of those who were not ready to understand the hidden meanings in His parables, Jesus said, "This people’s heart has grown dull, and their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed." (Matthew 13:15) But when His disciples were ready to understand the deeper meaning, Jesus said, "Blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear." (Matthew 13:16)
Getting Into Heaven
Christ is upon his throne, his secretary by his side. A soul appears. This is what happens -
"What is your name?"
"Were you a Christian?"
"Did you endeavor to convert your fellow-men?"
I did. I tried to convert them by persuasion, by preaching and praying and even by force.
"What did you do?"
I put the heretics in prison, in chains. I tore out their tongues, put out their eyes, crushed their bones, stretched them upon racks, roasted their feet, and if they remained obdurate I flayed them alive or burned them at the stake.
"And did you do all this for my glory?"
Yes, all for you. I wanted to leave some, I wanted to protect the young and the weak minded.
"Did you believe the Bible, the miracles that I was God, that I was born of a virgin and kept money in the mouth of a fish?"
Yes, I believed it all. My reason was the slave of faith.
"Well done, good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joys of thy Lord. I was hungry and you gave me meat, naked and you clothed me."
Another soul arises.
"What is your name?"
"Were you a Christian?"
At one time I was, but for many years I was a philosopher, a seeker after truth.
"Did you seek to convert your fellow-men?"
Not to Christianity, but to the religion of reason. I tried to develop their minds, to free them from the slavery of ignorance and superstition.
In my day the church taught the holiness of credulity the virtue of unquestioning obedience, and in your name tortured and destroyed the intelligent and courageous.
I did what I could to civilize the world, to make men tolerant and merciful, to soften the hearts of priests, and banish torture from the world. I expressed my honest thoughts and walked in the light of reason.
"Did you believe the Bible, the miracles? Did you believe that I was God, that I was born of a virgin and that I suffered myself to be killed by the Jews to appease the wrath of God that is, of myself so that God could save the souls of a few?"
No I did not. I did not believe that God was ever born into my world, or that God learned the trade of a carpenter, or that he "increased in knowledge," or that he cast devils out of men, or that his garments could cure diseases, or that he allowed himself to be murdered, and in the hour of death "forsook" himself. These things I did not and could not believe.
But I did all the good I could. I enlightened the ignorant, comforted the afflicted, defended the innocent, divided even my property with the poor, and did the best I could to increase the happiness of my fellow-men. I was a soldier in the army of progress.
For these sins against Christianity, you shall be arrested, imprisoned, tried, and convicted, and burned at the stake by our holy priests, who dole out the justice of the living god, and your ashes shall be given to the westerly winds.
What is your name?
The liberation of Mythology, Joseph Campbell
What is myth, the dictionary says that myths are stories about gods.
What is god?
A god is a personification of a motive power or a value system that functions in human life and in the universe. The powers of your own body and of nature. The myths are metaphorical of spiritual potentiality in the human being, and the same powers that animate our life, animate the life of the world.
One person said: far from undermining my faith, your work in mythology has liberated my faith from the cultural prisons to which it had been sentenced.
Joseph Campbell: It liberated my own, and I know it is going to do that with anyone who gets the message.
Joseph Campbell said; that when you start interpreting ancient scriptures as facts, then you're in trouble.
For example, jesus ascended to heaven. The denotation would seem to be that somebody ascended to the sky. That's literally what is being said. But elsewhere it is written "look not lo here, nor lo there, for the kingdom of god is within you" Not out there in outer space.
But if that were really the meaning of the message, then we have to throw it away, because there would have been no such place for jesus literally to go. We know that jesus could not have ascended to heaven because there is no physical heaven anywhere in the universe.
Even ascending at the speed of light, Jesus would still be in the galaxy, Astronomy and physics have simply eliminated that as a literal, physical possibility. but if you read "Jesus ascended to heaven" in terms of it's metaphoric connotation, you see that he has gone inward, not into outer space, but into inner space, to the place from which all beings comes, into the consciousness that is the source of all things.
The kingdom of heaven within.
The images are outward, but the reflection is inward. the point is that we should ascend with him by going inward, it is a metaphor of returning to the source, alpha and omega, leaving the fixation on the body behind and going to the body's dynamic source.
According to the normal way of thinking about the christian religion, we cannot identify with jesus, we have to imitate Jesus. To say, " I and the father are one" as Jesus said, is blasphemy for us. However, in the Gospel of Thomas that was dig up 40 years ago, Jesus says; "he who drinks from my mouth will become as I am, and I shall be he." Now, that is exactly Buddhism. We are all manifestations of Buddha consciousness, or Christ consciousness, only we don't know it.
The word Buddha means "the one who woke up." We are all to do that, to wake up to the Christ or Buddha consciousness within us,]. this is blasphemy in the normal way of Christian thinking, but it is the very essence of Christian Gnosticism and the Gospel of Thomas.
How did we lose touch with this reality? one word "religion."
Religion took away the mystical experience and replaced it with dogma, ceremonies and tradition, for the purpose of controlling the Masses. They couldn't have people having enlightenment experiences of truth, because thay would then lose their own power, so the real power of Jesus as an inner transformation was put in the shadows, or in a box as it were. So the people were in fact dummied down for the past two thousand years.
Question to Mr. Campbell; As we sit here and talk, there is one story after another of car bombings in Beirut-by the Muslims of the Christians, by the Christians of the Muslims, and by the Christians of the Christians. It strikes me that Marshall McLuhan was right when he said that television has made a global village of the world-but he didn't know the global village would be in Beirut.
What does this say?
Joseph Campbell; It says to me that they don't know how to apply their religious ideas to contemporary life, and to human beings rather than just their own community. It's a terrible example of the failure of religion to meet the modern world. These three MYTHOLOGIES are fighting it out. they have disqualified themselves for the future. Eventually all religions will all have to abandoned, before man can rise up to the occasion of the universe, and truly follow Jesus, Buddha and Krishna.
Religions have been busying themselves with separating people from one another and creating most of the wars and killing on this planet since it's inception.
When humanity finally wakes up, and realizes that religion has been the root cause of most of the suffering on this planet either physically or mentally, then we can get on with our collective goal of entering back into lost paradise.
We can't go in as long as religion keeps the doors to paradise closed, and they hide the lock to the door.
But people are getting the message, they are getting smarter and beginning to wake up, I think this is what the mythology of Aquarius is bringing us.
"In god we trust, just not the god of the bible."
Thank you for the enlightenment Mr. Campbell.
Truly, the man of the hour!
Concerning the Bible
Did you every wonder about all the wild stuff written in the Bible. Talking snake, talking bush, virgin births, walking on water, flying horses etc etc.
There is a very good reason.
THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN IN ALEXANDRIA EGYPT
Alexandria Egypt was founded by Alexander the Great of Greece. Alexander was inspired to build Alexandria from Homer’s Odyssey. His personal hero was Achilles and his family was said to be descended from Hercules.
Alexander the founder of the city where the Bible was written consulted with the Oracle of Delphi as well as the Oracle of Zeus Ammon.
Alexandria was the center of Zeus worship which explains why the birth of Zeus and the birth of Jesus are identical stories.
THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN IN THE CITY THAT WAS THE CENTER OF EGYPTIAN AND GREEK MYTHOLOGY ALEXANDRIA EGYPT
Alexandria was the seat of the formation of the important cult of Serapis, an amalgamation of Greek and Egyptian mythology.
Alexandria was the centre for the very first biblical studies ever performed, and the Old Testament was collected into the shape very similar to what it is now.
History tells us that the Bible was written in the mythological center of the world, Alexandria.
That is why our Biblical stories speak of Jesus the Sun God, the light of the world who continued where Zeus left off .
You probably never knew that the Bible was written in Alexandria Egypt the worlds center of Greek and Egyptian Mythology.
But it was, and you know now.
The entire bible is greek mythology, and so called scholars that one can see on the History channel, haven't a clue, why do they call themselves scholars?
I thought a "scholar" was a learned person in a certain field, yet these scholars can't differentiate between mythology, fiction and literalism.
They either want to believe that the bible is all fiction or all literal, yet they never even entertain the idea that it is Mythology.
Mythology is not fiction.
After much comparative reading of Greek and Egyptian, it became evident that it IS all mythology. Especially when I got into history and comparative religion. There is NO question that the judeo-christian mythology is based on earlier (often pagan) sources.
The legends of a god-man born of a virgin, martyred and resurrected were millenia old and existed in many cultures before the time of Jesus.
However, the fact that it's a mythology does not make it any less interesting, beautiful, and full of wisdom .
Mythologies are NOT the same thing as "lies." Mythologies have always been so important to humankind. They tell us not only about ourselves, but tell us about our quest for understanding.
concerning the bible
What is a .......Metaphor
Transferring to one word the sense of another. One thing is likened to another as if it were the other. Examples: Screaming headlines, He made an ass of himself, it stirred our emotions, Life is a lark.
A story where people, things or happenings have another meaning, used in teaching or explaining.
To throw beside, to compare. A story with a moral or enigmatic saying.
Bible to be interpreted and taught allegorically, not literally
"There always has been and always must be an exoteric doctrine for the masses, and esoteric teaching for those who as Plotinus says 'are fortunately able to perceive it'. But in fact these 'mysteries' cannot be stated in any language but that of allegory and symbolism and in a physical language which can only be symbolical, never literal." (Kingsland, p.26)
"Paul ... speaks of 'false apostles, deceitful workers,' (2 Cor.xi.12) Must we not say, in deed, that all those teachers in the Church who still base their teachings on the literal word of the Scriptures belong to this class, and are simply 'blind leaders of the blind'." (Kingsland, p.84)
"what is known traditionally and historically as 'Christianity' consists of man-made dogmas based on a literal interpretation of those Scriptures, and not on their allegorical, mystical, and gnostic nature." (Kingsland, p.23)
The purpose of this page is to demonstrate that there is more to Christianity than meets the eye. Beyond the literal use of the Bible there is a vast reservoir of esoteric knowledge.
WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THAT THE BIBLE IS THE LITERAL WORD OF GOD. But it is all mythology, it’s all symbolic, but you have to understand the meaning of the mythology, in order to grasp what the bible is saying.
2. Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory: the definition of a myth includes the term allegory. Here again the Bible tells us it is symbolic.
3. Matthew 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: The Bible is saying that all of Jesus statements were symbolic.
4. Mark 4:11 And he said unto 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:
5. Psalm 78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: Here the Bible states that GOD speaks in parables . And what are dark sayings of old. Obviously they are symbolic statements.
6. In the Book of Proverbs describes wisdom. It explains how one becomes wise. Proverbs 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. Dark sayings is mythology.
7. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 2 cor.4:3
8. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 2 cor. 3:14
9. We should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter." (Romans 7:6)
10. Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak in parables? EZ:20 Here God speaks in parables
11. 1Cr 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory. Here it says god ordained the hidden wisdom, even before the world
12. Eze. 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a parable unto the house of Israel. God orders riddles
21. Proverbs 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
22. 1 cor 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Here God is saying that his word is like milk to you, as a babe must drink milk before it can eat solid food. God is saying his word is for the the one who is ready for meat, in other words, when one is ready for the deeper meaning, this is the meat, for the one full of age (wisdom). Reading Gods word literally is MILK, it is for the unskillful, and they will not understand.
Here the fact that this is all consciousness is made clear. It says to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God. Where is the Kingdom of God ? . (Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.)
ITS ALL MYTH, But realize that MYTHS are SPIRITUAL TRUTHS!
The power of the enemy, who is the enemy.? We are told in Romans 8:7 who is the enemy , " the carnal mind which is not subject to Gods law, neither can it be."
When you enter into yourself you are entering into the Kingdom of God. Fundamentalists who do not agree with the teachings of Jesus Christ , frighten people away from this wonderful secret which is only attainable through meditation.
Jesus refers to all people who turn others away from entering within themselves in meditation. Luke 11:52 " you have taken away the key of knowledge, you entered not in yourselves and them that were entering in, you hindered."
And where is the Revelation of who dwells in that inner place attainable only through meditation ? John 14:20, " at that time you will know, I am in the Father, you in me and I in you.
A spiritual birth occurs within, when the Father Mind, impregnates the Mother Mind.
The virgin womb then brings forth the child of promise and all becomes new.
In nature, new life occurs when the Sun rises from the depths of the winter solstice to touch the Lamb Aries, in the spring.
Within us the same new life occurs when the Sun rises from the depths of the solar plexus through meditation, and touches the Lamb, the Pineal Gland. The winter of our life gives way to the spring and all things become new.
As Paul said in Romans 12:2 " be transformed by the renewing of your mind".
Each one must find this non being. When you do, you will attain to truth and salvation. This is the Tao, this is the Road, this is the Way. Look up, the stars testify of the way, Pegasus fly's from star to star and Zeus unleashes his thunderbolt, to proclaim the coming of the Way.
To summarize this entire page
God is light, religion calls this light spirit, but in reality it is electromagnetism vibrating at a frequency that is invisible, it is pure consciousness, it is everything, everywhere, all the time, it is the ALL.
Light does not interfere with the earth realm (physical things).
There isn't any god that listens to nor answers millions of prayers emanating from the minds of human beings all over the world every second of the day
When one enters WITHIN themselves in meditation, one activates the internal kingdom, then when a decision is made, it is the right decision for you.
You are a product of your mother and father.
But what animates you is the Light, this is the God part, this is the image.
The physical is of the earth, but the light is from above, the cosmos.
You can't pray to light, but you can receive it via the vibration of the pineal gland in meditation.
Meditation IS prayer, prayer is not mumbling words or thinking, or asking for things with thought.
In fact you are to take NO thought.
This internal light experienced is pure energy and alters, or makes changes and can totally transform the patterns we are and what we experience much like the atomic device which transforms externally the physical landscape reducing everything to zero so as to begin again. Zep tepi "first time"
"I have seen god face to face, and I call this place pineal"
Jacob of the Bible.
God and Your Mind
Contrary to scientific opinion your mind does not have its origin in your brain.
Consciousness originates with God. Your Monad has god-like powers but lacks experience. Therefore your Soul is sent forth to gain knowledge on Earth. What it does learn is transferred at the death of the physical body to a higher spiritual body known as the Causal Body.
Death can refer only to your physical body. You do NOT die at death. Your consciousness is freed from your body and it continues to live on the astral and mental planes which surround the Earth. Your Personality uses language as a means of communication. If you want to communicate with other spiritual beings you must learn to pass information via symbols and pictures.
Your Higher Self is the repository of your consciousness when your body dies. Your body is related to the planet Earth. Your mind is associated with the Moon. Your Higher Self uses a form of Solar consciousness related to the Solar Logos or Christ. This means that there is a universal form of religion based on your spiritual anatomy, which in turn is a miniature reflection of the universe in which you live.
Your task is to unite your lunar personality to your Solar Higher Self.
This is called spiritual alchemy because it refers to the marriage of the Moon and the Sun within you, even when you are living on this planet Earth. Seek the Light within you.
First of all the "Holy Bible" is filled with astrological symbolism. There are those who would falsely say that God is against astrology. There are those who would falsely say that the Holy Bible is against astrology. The simple truth is that astrology is God's handwriting written across the sky. The zodiac is a necklace worn around God's neck.
Just as there are 12 tribes of Israel, there are 12 signs of the zodiac, 12 sons of Jacob, and 12 apostles.
In the book of Job Chapter 38:33 "Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? 38:31
"Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Plei-a-des or loose the bands of Orion?" 38:32
"Canst thou bring forth Mazz-a-roth in his season? or canst thou guide Arc-tu-rus with his sons?"
This is all in reference to the zodiac and astrology. The definition of Mazzaroth in the King James Version of the bible is "The twelve houses of the zodiac".
What is it that is so important about all these celestial things?
because this is where the LIGHT comes from.
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights: The bible
