The meaning of the word SALVATION
A symbol of the liberation of the soul/light/photon that you are in that flesh, from the lower nature (first three chakras of the body), proceeded by the process of purification through suffering and evil, during the cycle of evolution.
The higher self (christ) during the process of involution in the higher mind, the soul center, and so forms the germ soul. The spiritual evolution proceeds upwards through the seven seals/chakras, thereby liberating the self, washed in the blood of the lamb (the pineal gland of the brain). The lamb slain. Blood is a symbol of the life force, electromagnetism. It's also a symbol of the blood left over after the slaying of the lamb or anumal nature.
And who stands ever vigilent to insure that this doesn't happen?
Satan, the ruler of darkness and ignorance within the soul and mind. "And jesus said unto them, I beheld Satan fallen, as lightning from heaven" Luke
The symbolism describes the perfected indwelling soul within each aspirant.
The adversary is the divine mind which strives against the divine nature within the soul
"your adversary the devil as a roaring lion walketh about, seeking who he may devour; whom withstand steadfast in your faith" The desire mind motivated by the strength of the desires and senses, seeks to dominate the soul, but the soul is exhorted to resist by relying upon the higher nature"
"the true devil in which we have to be sober and vigelent is within man" the lower affections, thoughts and appetites, the animal part of human nature."
Christ drives out our legion of indwelling vices.
The bible story in a nut shell!!
Salvation in the Bhagavad Gita is Krishna, in the Bible it is Jesus, in the Buddhists tradition it is Buddha, yet it's all the same.
Buddha and Krishna both drive out our legion of indwelling vices, just as jesus does.
Blasphemy against the holy lightning ghost
12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. WHY?
12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
Who are the Blasphemers? We shall see who the real blasphemers are.
This is the attempt which must always be unsuccessful (hence there really be no blasphemy) but the writer is saying figuratively that those that turn their back on the truth are blasphemers, they substitute the for the living spirit the dead letter of the scriptures (the outer jesus), this attempt is made , not only by the theologian and religion in general, but by all people who do not live in accordance with the divine guidance within them, who do not take up what is committed to them to spiritually profit by, and who fail to accept the higher consciousness as it comes to them to become the sustaining power (bread) in their daily lives.
There is much of this incipient blasphemy for which there can be no forgiveness, since there can be no substitute for the higher conscious state, Until the vibrations are allowed to permeate the lower nature, and so raise it, there can be salvation of the soul, and this is blasphemous to the higher.
So who are the real blasphemers?
Every single religious person and Christian that looks for an outer savior, a return of a LITERAL christ figure, to step on the MT of olives.
They are the real blasphemers because they read the scriptures literally, and since they do this, they have missed the real message, which is to form the CHRIST WITHIN!
A Zen, Yogi or Buddhist person meditating in the Far East is NOT blaspheming against the holy ghost, because he is going within himself and cultivating his inner self to overcome the ego, exactly as the bible says to do.
"they take good for evil, and evil for good"
It is the religious person that is the blasphemer, or actually any person that DOES NOT take up meditation.
4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
No explanation necessary
The christ, krishna, buddha mind cannot be formed until the thoughts of the mind are shutdown for periods of time.
As Paul said " I (the ego self ) must decrease, while christ (the higher self) must increase"
Another way of saying it is like this
THE UNPARDONABLE SIN AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST
Before dismissing our ghostly narrative, it may effect something in the way of mitigating the anxious fears of some of our Christian brothers and sisters to explain the nature of "the sin against the Holy Ghost," and assign the reason for its being unpardonable.
The sin against the Holy Ghost consisted, according to the ancient traditions, is in resisting its operations in the second birth that is, the regeneration of the heart or soul by the Holy Ghost.
In other words avoiding meditation and not allowing the serpent god to rise up your spine as jesus said in matthew and god said to moses. Lift up your serpent. We do not do this, thus we avoid the renewing of the mind.
And as the rectification of the heart or soul was a prominent idea with Christ, there is scarcely any ground to doubt but that this was the notion he cherished of the nature of the sin against the Holy Ghost (god).
And it was considered unpardonable, simply because as the pardoning and cleansing process consisted in, or was at least always accompanied with baptism by water and fir reached in meditation effecting a "new birth, therefore, when the ministrations or operations of this indispensable agent were resisted or rejected, there was no channel, no means, no possible mode left for the sinner to find a renewed acceptance with God.
When a person sinned against the Father or the Word (the Son), he closed the door to god's kingdom and the baptizing processes .
This Godhead had the effect to close and bar the door so that there could be "no forgiveness, either in this life or that which is to come." To sin against the Holy Ghost was to tear down the scaffold by which the door of heaven was to be reached. The scaffold is tore down, when we neglect our meditations.
And thus it is explained the great "mystery of godliness," the "unpardonable sin against the Holy Ghost," which, on account of the frightful penalty annexed to it, has caused thousands, and probably millions, of the disciples of the Christian faith the most agonizing hours of alarm and despair.
"woe to you scribes and pharisees, you have SHUTUP god's kingdom, because you have not gone IN YOURSELVES (Meditation) This is the sin against the holy ghost.
Not cursing and using god's name and other nonsense, but simply ignoring the basic commandment for allowing god / jesus to rise up the spine. It's all electromagnetic energy from above. Can't you bring forth mazzaroth (the zodiac) in it's due season, says the BIBLE. Not a new age book, but the BIBLE.
So what's this Satan thing all about then?
Ahhhh the ole' 'You worship Satan' thingy!
Well no we don't. When you think about it, saying a Pagan worships Satan is like telling a Jew that he worships Kali.
Satan is a part of Christianity. A Christian story a Christian myth. Okay now this myth may have been the churches ruse to demonize our horned God, then again it may not be. Either way it is a part of the Christian faith. I am not a Christian, therefore I hold no Christian values. I hold no belief in Christian mythology, and basically I just don't believe in the existence of the Christian Devil.
If you realize that the word Satan, basically means adversary. Then what is this telling you. That Satan is Gods enemy? Well yes I guess so, if you are a Christian. However as stated above, I'm not Christian. So what does Satan mean to me? The EGO.
In many Indian faiths, there is an idea that to truly find God, one has to completely overcome human ego.
It is stated that the human ego, is the block that stops any one person meeting with God.
Now this block could be treated as an adversary of your self. A self imposed enemy that stops one seeing the ultimate truth.
The ego is the Satan within, that makes you concentrate on Earthly matters, when you mind should be focused on reaching God.
Alan Watts used to say, “The ‘you’ who you think you are doesn’t exist.” The ego-self is a hallucination. So, who am I? In the quietness of non-concept prayer, in the silence of meditation, in the emptying of “self” to the One in whom we live and move and have our being that is, in Watts’s words,
“to come into the presence of the God who has no image. Behind the Father image, behind the Mother image, behind the image of light inaccessible, behind the image of profound and abysmal darkness, there’s something else which we can’t conceive at all. Dionysius the Areopagite called it the Luminous Darkness. Nagarjuna called it Sunyata the Void."
4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
No explanation necessary
4:20 I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.
The higher desires to conquer the ego, but there is doubt
4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
The law is the referring to the old testament, which is a hidden symbol for the kundalini.
4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
Abraham, the higher christ type has two sons, higher and lower aspect, the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
bondmaid is a symbol of the mind in captivity to desire and sensation (the lower mind)
A freewoman is a symbol of the emotional nature of the soul, which is to be transmuted from the material to the higher state of consciousness. Free means the mind ans soul under the directing principle of the higher, as opposed to the bondmaid, the lower aspect of mind.
4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
Do you see that the bondmaid was born after the flesh (the physical/ego) yet the freewoman is of promise?
4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
Two covenats, mount sinai, the higher consciousness, and the one in bondage (agar), the ego.
The we see that the writer is telling us that the whole story is an allegory, of course it is, and so is all the rest, because the descendents both before an after these are all part of the bible story.
4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
The high mt. Sinai which is gods mountain is under the control/bondage of agar the lower mind
4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Jerusalem the higher consciousness.
4:27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
The ego is desolate and has many children (emotional thoughts) the husband is referring to the higher mind, this barren consciousness lacks a husband
4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
The off spring of Abraham, Isaac and jacob are the promise, because they overcame the ego.
4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
Do you see what the above verse is making reference to, it is referencing the lower ego mind, the one that is after the flesh, continually comes against the spirit, in other words it's a never ending battle to overcome the fleshly animal nature in us all.
so it is now. Even to this very day
WHY MUST THE FIRST BORN DIE ?
We know that in the realm of elements the first born is Protein. How do we know that, because the word protein means first. But in the realm of consciousness what is the first born. Why must it die?
1 Corinthians15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
1 Corinthians15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven So you see why the one which is of the earth must be killed so that the one which is from above may come. Jesus which is the firstborn dies so Christ may come.
In Exodus the first born are killed so that which is above may come and the plagues may be removed. In you the human protein which is of the earth must die so that the cosmic protein may come. When that occurs all the people are set free. Set free from the thoughts of the mind, and the power that comes from them. Free of the diseases, and the fears, and the hate, and the wars and the violence.
GET RIDE OF THE LEAVEN Exodus12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. The first born, the human protein is killed so the cosmic protein may descend upon the earth.
Now the leaven is put out. The human enzyme is eliminated so that the cosmic enzyme may descend upon the earth and the mutant DNA will be opened and healed. And how long did all of the torture last? Exodus12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. Everything of course is mythological even the time. The rising up through the 7 seals to the Place of the single eye.
Buddha Consciousness born in the right brain (Kundalini)
Before he was incarnated as Gautama Siddartha, the Buddha resided in heaven, and told his followers that he had been Indra thirty-six times= NINE, and many hundred times ruler of the world. As the time approached for his birth, earthquakes and miracles occurred on the Earth.
In Kapilavastu, on the Indo-Nepalese border, his earthly mother, Queen Maya, experienced a vision in which she beheld the Buddha come down into her womb as a white elephant. This was interpreted as the birth of a world savior, and when the time came for Maya to give birth, she went to a grove, where the child was born, out of his mothers RIGHT side without any pain.
emerging from her right side without causing her the slightest pain.That's the opening of the right hemisphere of the brain.
The child was almost instantly endowed with the power of speech, and every time he took a step there appeared on the ground before him a lotus. Instantaneously was born his wife, Yasodhara Devi, his horse Kantaka, his charioteer Chandaka, Ananda, his chief disciple, and the Bo Tree, under which he received Enlightenment.
Maya, however, died seven days after the Buddha was born, and he, having attained supreme knowledge, ascended to the Trayastrimsa Heaven and preached there to his mother for three months.
His father, King Suddhodana, did his best to insulate the young Siddartha from the outside world (for fear that the youth would become a great sage, rather than a great ruler, should he become mindful of the injustices of the world).
However, Siddartha encountered a corpse being carried to the cremation ground and, seeing the evil things of the world come to life before his eyes, he abandoned throne, family and offspring, and became a wanderer, a hermit, seeking enlightenment. This did not come until six years later, however, when Siddartha paused for rest under a Bo Tree. There he received Enlightenment, and became the Buddha.
Neither the attack of the demon Mara, nor the attraction of his daughters, nor the rush of an army of hideous devils could sway Buddha from his meditations, and when Mara used his final weapon, a fiery discus, and flung it at the monk's head, it turned into a canopy of flowers.
For five weeks Buddha remained under the tree, while all his previous lives were revealed to him, and then the mighty tempest occurred, but Muchalinda, king of the Nagas, protected the monk by wrapping his serpentine body around the youth.
Having attained Enlightenment, the Buddha was now faced with a choice: he could either enter Nirvana, or forsake this, and instead travel the world preaching the law. Mara urged the former course, but the Buddha chose the latter, on the advice of Brahma.
Concerning Buddha's death, Titcomb states:
It is said that towards the end of his life Buddha was transfigured on Mount Pandava, in Ceylon. Suddenly a flame of light descended upon him, and encircled the crown of his head with a circle of light. His body became "glorious as a bright, golden image," and shone as the brightness of the Sun and moon…
At the death of Buddha, the earth trembled, the rocks were split and phantoms and spirits appeared. He descended into hell and preached to the spirits of the damned.
When Buddha was buried, the coverings of his body unrolled themselves, the lid of his coffin was opened by supernatural powers, and he ascended bodily to the celestial regions.
The resemblances to the Christ myth include the transfiguration, the earthquake upon death, the descent into hell and the ascension. For the most part, the preceding synopsis of Buddha's life and death reflects the mainstream, orthodox tale.
One notable exception is the assertion that Buddha is portrayed as "ascending bodily" after his death, a claim that is not without merit, as will be seen.
In any case, those who know the gospel story and the canonical Acts of the Apostles in depth, as well as the apocryphal Christian texts and legends recounted over the centuries, will recognize numerous elements in the Buddha tale that correspond to the Christ myth.
In Bible Myths and Their Parallels in Other spiritual books
It is not a little strange that the remarkable resemblance, which we have noticed between Buddhism and Christianity extends even to the lives of their founders.
Gautama Buddha, as well as Jesus Christ, is said to have been miraculously born. The birth of each was attended with marvellous omens, and was presided over by a star…
Both Gautama and Jesus are said to have twelve disciples each….
The assertion that Gautama had 12 disciples is, of course, not found in mainstream accounts. Could it be, however, that this Indian scholar has more knowledge about the subject than the Western pundits and apologists?
We have already noted that the motif of the five disciples is found in the Buddha myth, and, as we shall see, the common astrotheological motif of the 12 would likewise be entirely appropriate and expected, and may have constituted esoteric knowledge and mysteries based on Buddha's true nature.
In The Christ Myth, John Jackson relates other important details of the Buddha myth, some of which also are "esoteric," i.e., not found in the orthodox story:
The close parallels between the life-stories of Buddha and Christ are just as remarkable as those between Krishna and Christ. Buddha was born of a virgin named Maya, or Mary. His birthday was celebrated on December 25.
He was visited by wise men who acknowledged his divinity. The life of Buddha was sought by King Bimbasara, who feared that some day the child would endanger his throne.
At the age of twelve, Buddha excelled the learned men of the temple in knowledge and wisdom. His ancestry was traced back to Maha Sammata, the first monarch in the world. (Jesus' ancestry is traced back to Adam, the first man in the world.)
Buddha was transfigured on a mountain top. His form was illumined by as aura of bright light. (Jesus was likewise transfigured on a mountain top. "And his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light." After the completion of his earthly mission, Buddha ascended bodily to the celestial realms.
Compiled from ancient records by Paul Carus, 1894
Buddha, O Blessed One, O Holy One, O Perfect One, thou hast revealed the truth, and the truth has appeared upon earth and the kingdom of truth has been founded. Righteousness is the place in which truth dwells, and here in the hearts of mankind aspiring after the realization of righteousness, there is ample space for a rich and ever richer revelation of the truth. This is the Gospel of the Blessed One.
This is the revelation of the Enlightened One. This is the bequest of the Holy One. Truth is the essence of life, for truth endureth beyond the death of the body. Truth is eternal and will still remain even though heaven and earth shall pass away.
There are not different truths in the world, for truth is one and the same at all times and in every place. Truth teaches us the noble eightfold path of righteousness, and it is a straight path easily found by the truth-loving. Happy are those who walk in it.
