YOU people worship what you do not understand, but we understand, for after all, Salvation is from the Jews (a Jew is one INWARDLY).

The story of the Moses basket ( the basket is your consciousness ) comes from Exodus 2:1-10. In it, Moses is left in a basket amid the reeds and bulrushes along the Nile ( this is a symbol of the life of the soul immersed in the lower, the reeds and bullrushes are symbols of the swampy lower self ), in Egypt where the Hebrews ( hebrews are those that follow the higher impulses of the intellect ) had been living since the time of Jacob.
By the end of Exodus 1, the pharaoh of Egypt had decreed that all the Hebrew boy babies were to be drowned at birth. ( the lower mind tries to keep captive the thoughts, so the symbol of drowning, the first thoughts are of a lower vibration and quality ESAU) In the 10 verses from Exodus 2, Yocheved, Moses' mother, hides her newborn for 3 months ( three is always a symbol of new life, as in overcoming the forces of the first three lower chakras ) and then places her baby in a caulked wicker basket in the Nile River reeds. The baby's crying alerts one of the pharaoh's daughters ( the lower emotions have captured the mental faculties ) who takes the baby.
Moses' sister Miriam ( the spirit, your soul ) watches in hiding, but comes out when it is clear, the princess is planning to keep the child. She asks the princess if she would like a Hebrew midwife ( a symbol of the mind in the process of an upward climb consciously ). The princess ( a symbol of the lower emotions ) agrees and so Miriam ( the spirit ) arranges to have the real mother get paid to nurse her own child ( it is important that the soul get understanding from the higher light or it will stay dead in Egypt, the nursing is a symbol of the good things that the spirit may find during the life lived in the lower forces Egypt, an upward push for wisdom from the higher aspect of ones own intellect ) who now lives among the Egyptian royalty.
The soul must undergo the influence of the lower self since birth ESAU, but with proper guidance from the higher self and meditation, one may eventually leave Egypt and take the people ( thoughts ) with them.
