The art of angling ( catching fish) The type of fish we are looking to catch are not real fish that swim in the ocean We are looking to catch spiritual fish
Remember that the bible is a spiritual book, and not any kind of literal history, if you want to read a history book, then go to the library and buy a history book, but if you want to learn about spiritual things, then read a bible. Keep in mind the scriptures on the right side bar every-time you read anything in the Bible.
As a reminder.
THE BIBLE AS SYMBOL; Our first order of business in this quest is to see if we can justify considering the Bible as symbolic rather then literal.
We must use the Bible itself.
1.2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. So here is the Bible itself telling us not to take it literally.
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.
How did it come to be that someone fishes with pole, hook and line is called an angler? Answer: It's because the angler angles. To angle, meaning to fish, comes from a Middle English noun "angel" (pronounced to rhyme with dangle), which simply means a fish-hook. an'-gling: Angling, i.e. fishing with a hook or angle, was little known among the ancients.
The fish were chiefly taken by casting nets, etc. (see Matthew 13:47). Compare e.g. "Then did Deucalion first the art invent of angling" (Davors, Secret of Angling, I). See NET.
If Simon Peter had been angling over the side of his ship and had caught a fine fish, he might have said, "Well done fisherman!" But when the boat was full of fish, so that it began to sink, he could not think of himself then. No, down he goes with "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord." The greatness of our work compels us to confess that it must be of God, it must be of the Lord alone. And, dear friends, it must be so if we consider the little with which we began.
Jacob ( your soul) said as he came over Jordan, "With my staff (spine) I crossed this Jordan (spinal fluid), but now am I become two bands." Surely his becoming two bands must be of God, for he had nothing but his staff. The two bands are a symbol of the piscean age, the two fish, as one gets baptized in the Jordan river, one has reached the second stage of meditation, whereby the emotions are being quelled within. Jesus then walks on water, as symbol of the christ principle being born in the mind or consciousness. In the zodiac, Jesus ( leo) walks on scorpio ( the lower emotions).
Scorpio is like a waterfall, or a storm. It is the power of water Scorpio is the sign of passion. This sign builds emotions up and up in a watery feedback loop until the time when it releases its emotional force in a torrent. These released emotions can range from revenge, like a scorpion, up through the eagle form of Scorpio. Christ's "hidden life" existed for 18 years.
12a Pisces The Fish
Nothing is written in the gospels about Jesus Christ after his visit to the Temple when he was 12 years of age up until his (almost 30) 30th year when he was baptized by John. For a total of 18 years there is a "blank" which has caused many scholars to speculate upon what may have happened during this time period. An astronomical/astrological event parallels the "gap of 18 years".
In a sense, the Sun (Son) is "missing" for a period of 18 days, like the Christ was "missing" for a period of 18 years. This equals 9, the number of consciousness. Symbolically, the Sun's leaving the watery sign of Scorpio to enter the "airy" region of "The Serpent Bearer" (Ophiuchus) is a perfect metaphor for "walking on the water" (crossing over the top of Scorpio) and mirrors one of Christ's great miracles.
In you, Jesus then walks on water, as symbol of the christ principle being born in the mind or consciousness. In the zodiac, Jesus ( leo) walks on scorpio ( the lower emotions). And takes away the sins of the world as the sun enters aries the lamb, the springtime of the universe and the earth. It's all astrology, as above, so below
Angel/angle “Angel” (the letter ‘g’ is pronounced as in ‘gent’) means ‘a God’s servant or messenger; a supernatural power sent by God; a sweet, kind person’, angels (God's messengers) It says in the Bible that angels spoke to Mary and Joseph.
Photons, angles/angels of light ( electromagnetism) from above.
Joseph and Mary represent the Pineal gland and the Pituitary glands of the brain A right angle triangle [verb] ‘to move or take a turn at an angle; to catch fish with a fishing rod as a sport’ [verb] ‘to catch fish using a fishing rod and bait, especially has a sport or for fun; and a person who catches fish using a fishing rod for sport or fun is called an ‘angler’.
Angle (a boy catching fish with a fishing rod - angling) Angler angling for fish (a boy catching fish with a fishing rod — angling) e.g. Can you draw a right angle? The old man would sit on the bank of the river and angle on a fine summer day Other Translations of Isaiah 19:8 The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.
The fishermen will be sad, and all those who put fishing-lines into the Nile will be full of grief, and those whose nets are stretched out on the waters will have sorrow in their hearts. "Thus have I proved, according to my purpose, that the sport and game of angling is the true means and cause that brings a man into a merry spirit, which (according to the said proverb of Solomon and the said teachings of medicine) makes a flowering of age and a long one.
And therefore, to all you that are virtuous, gentle and free-born, I write and make this simple treatise which follows, by which you can have the whole art of angling to amuse you as you please, in order that your age may flourish the more and last the longer. From the modernized text of The Treatise of Fishing with an Angle (From the 2nd Book of St. Albans, 1496)
A Brief History of Angling Angling is the technique of catching fish using a rod and line; it is called "angling" because of the angle formed by the two. It is considered a sport when practiced for enjoyment, without the need of fish for food or commerce (though bringing home your day's catch for dinner is a bonus for a good angler). Anglers sometimes attempt to catch only one type of fish, often limiting their equipment to increase the sport.
Ancient pictographs dating from about 2000 B.C. indicate that the first known anglers were the Egyptians. A drawing dating from c. 1400 B.C., which depicts an Egyptian noble angling in an elegant pond, suggests they were also the first culture which enjoyed it as a sport.
The Greeks, who wrote avidly on fishing, discuss the sport of angling in greater detail, and provide some of the earliest amounts of the equipment used. The Romans, by contrast, did not seem to hold the sport in very high regard, since there is mention that it was an activity for women and not a fitting sport for men."
"angle1" INTRANSITIVE VERB: Inflected forms: an·gled, an·gling, an·gles 1. To fish with a hook and line. 2. To try to get something by indirect or artful means: angle for a promotion. NOUN: Obsolete A fishhook or fishing tackle. ETYMOLOGY: Middle English anglen, from angel, fishhook, from Old English."
In latin the word angle means angel So then angles are angels, anglers are the ones who catch fish.
Fallen angels is what we are, angles of light that fell into these flesh pots of Egypt at the 49th day of gestation vis the pineal gland. There are good angles/angels and there are bad angles/angels. The bad angels are in the first three chakras, the good angels are in the cerebrum at the right hemisphere of the brain. Angles of light are messenger particles called photons,
photons come to the earth at an angle . Some angles are good and some angles are bad. In astrology zodiacal light comes to the earth at an angle, and in astrology it is said that these angles of light can bring a good feeling to the mind, or they can bring a feeling of depression. This is the meaning of good angels and bad angels in the bible story. there are no such things as literal angles, there are only ANGLES of light, some have a lower frequency, and some have higher frequencies. Good and bad.
Angels in the myths are the gods messengers, therefore what is being said is that angles of light carry a message from the cosmos, and if you go fishing you can catch these angles/angles. Now lets have a look at the meaning of fish hook from the Bible and the Zohar Hebrew Name: Tzaddi (fish hook)
Tzaddi means fish-hook, "signifying that which draws the fish (Nun-K13) out of the water (Mem-K12). The water is reflected, personal existence, symbolized by the Hanged Man. It is also, in a sense, the ocean of [the universal subconscious]. The fish symbolizes transforming and reproductive power." Tzaddi thus indicates the activity of raising up the reproductive force (the raising of the Kundalini energy in meditation) and of tapping into a well-spring of knowledge out of the waters of subconsciousness.
"Meditation is the function attributed to Tzaddi. It has been defined as "an unbroken flow of knowledge in a particular object." It is a fishing for truth in the depths of subconsciousness" Hebrew Name: Nun (fish) Nun means "fish". As a verb it means "to sprout, to grow", and conveys the ideas of "fertility, fecundity, productiveness, generative power, origin, source, mainspring, groundwork, [and] leaven." Life springs forth abundantly as it transforms itself from the old to the new. This transformation only seems like a "death", when one is attached or focused in the past or on the old outworn form.
The sense or function of Motion is attributed to Nun. "All motion is change, transformation, modification, variation. Change is the basis of manifestation." Hebrew Name: Mem (water) Mem is one of the three primary Hebrew "Mother" letters and means "water" or "seas." Water "is the first mirror. Water reflects images upside down."
"The waters of the letter Mem are none other than the waters of consciousness- the Primal Substance of Being without beginning or end." The path from the second circuit to the fourth brain circuit (Yesod to Netzach) is called Tzaddi which means "fish hook" in Hebrew. This meaning is related to experimentation, quest, and research, to solve problems and to discover secrets.
This is Path 17 on the Tree of Life and is known as the "natural intelligence." Continuing Tzaddi means fishhook, which means meditation, or that which is used to pull a fish, Nun (Death), out of water, Mem (The Hanged Man). * Water is the great unconscious and the fish symbolizes eternal spirit of god. The fish is also a symbol of the place where the material world intersects the spiritual world (see The Hanged Man, Part II).
And so we must use the fishhook of meditation or prayer to delve into the great unconscious. Tarot So we have references telling us that in the context of mythology, the word fishhook actually means meditation.
But we can't catch fish unless we have a pole. The fishing pole is the spine, in the bible sticks, masts, rods, staffs etc...are always making reference to the spine, because the spine is the medium which the energy in the solar plexus rises to impact the brain. Moses threw down his rod (spine) and it turned into a serpent ( kundalini). So we have a pole/rod ( spine), the line can be seen as the spine as well, and we have a hook.
If we put all these together we have a device for catching fish . We can angle, we can be anglers. Lets have a look at the following bible verse and see what they mean. Job 41: Is it possible for Leviathan (the lower mind/ego) to be pulled out with a fish-hook (fish hook means meditation, it is meditation that catches fish, fish are symbols of the spirit), or for a hook to be put through the bone of his mouth? In other words is it possible to raise this beast up to it's higher estate. Ezekiel 29:4:
It is possible to raise this beast to a higher estate. Do you understand this statement? This the raising of the lower ego mind to the higher Christ mind. This happens when you are angling in meditation, catching fish.
Catching angles of light fish) in meditation , that's the meaning of Zeus hurling down his lightning bolts to the earth, Prometheus stealing fire from the gods and giving it to mankind.
Mal 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom you delight in: behold, he shall come, said the LORD of hosts.
Where is the temple? It is your brain, so do you see the lord will send a messenger, that would be an angle of light.
Mark 1:2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who shall prepare your way before you.
Lk 7:27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Job 38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades? or loose the bands of Orion?
What influences are the scriptures talking about, it's talking about the electromagnetism that comes from these bodies up there in the sky. It is more appropriately LIGHT. Mazzaroth means zodiac, this is where the messenger comes from, as an angle of light. Can YOU bring them forth within you. YES, when one is in meditation taking no thought, you are bringing forth LIGHT from above within you.
First pic above we see angles of light, messenger particles before thy face,the next picture we see the boat (body) with and seven figures, representing the seven chakras, the beetle represents the brain and both hemispheres, and the sun represents the cosmic spiritual force, and the we see the fish in the water. These are not coincidences, since most of the Bible mythologies were drawn from earlier Egyptian and Greek myths.
And I will put hooks ( meditation) in your mouth , and the fish ( fish are symbols of divine thought) of your streams (are symbols of consciousness) will be hanging from your skin (a symbol of the physical (the lower mind); and I will make you (the leviathan, EGO) come up out of your streams, with all the fish of your streams hanging from your skin. (meaning that the divine thoughts which are brought forth in meditation, they will hang from the skin, attached to the lower ego) God will bring-forth the good higher thoughts out of that which is the lower part.
Amos 4:2: The Lord God has taken an oath by his holy name, that the days are coming when they will take you away with hooks, and the rest of you with fish-hooks. The fish hook is a symbol of meditation and bringing forth the divine thoughts within.
The word HOOKS by itself means to remove the lower thinking by the higher consciousness. Jonah 1:17: And the Lord made ready a great fish (a symbol of the spiritual nature of god) to take Jonah (the lower self) into its mouth (the mouth of god); and Jonah was inside the fish for three days (three is a symbol of the first three chakras of the body) and three nights.
Habakkuk 1:15: He takes them all up with his hook ( meditation), he takes them in his net , getting them together in his fishing-net (The higher consciousness): for which cause he is glad and full of joy. Genesis 1:21: And God made great sea-beasts, and every sort of living and moving thing with which the waters were full, (we are born with this lower beastly mind) and every sort of winged bird: (winged birds are symbols of thought) and God saw that it was good.
This is good? Exodus 4:2: And the Lord said to him, What is that in your hand? (hand is the directing principle of the mind) And he said, A rod. The rod is the spine. Exodus 7:17: So the Lord says, By this you may be certain that I am the Lord; see, by the touch of this rod (The power of the higher through the spine and the seven chakras) in my hand the waters of the Nile ( the spinal fluid) will be turned to blood; The waters of the Nile symbolize the turbulent unconscious mind, blood is a symbol of truth. Exodus 21:20:
Numbers 17:2: Say to the children of Israel ( those that are chosen in meditation) that they are to give you rods (the spine), one for every family (all of the aspects of the mind), for every chief (the intellect), the head of his father's house (the higher mind), making twelve rods (the twelve signs and 12 cranial nerves); let every man's name be placed on his rod.
The name is a symbol of the higher as it has moved up the spine (rod) Numbers 17:6: So Moses gave these orders to the children of Israel ( the chosen, those in meditation), and all their chiefs gave him rods, one for the head of every family, making twelve rods: and Aaron's rod was among them.
Aarons rod bloomed almonds, this is a symbol of almond gland at the throat it is the 5th chakra. Exodus 14:16: And let your rod be lifted up and your hand stretched out over the sea ( The sea is a symbol of the turbulent mind), and it will be parted in two; and the children of Israel ( those that follow the higher divine principle within) will go through on dry land ( dry land, spiritual barrenness). A symbol of the power of the higher consciousness, making way through through the spine, to let the Israelites through to the promised land (the brain on the higher consciousness) Mt:17:27:
Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast a hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee. Money is a symbol of the lower mind, the fish caught is the higher spirit, yet in their was the aspect of the lower (money), give that to THEM.
Jn:21:3: Simon Peter ( means hearing spiritually) saith unto them, I go a fishing (in meditation to catch spirit). They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately (ship, the symbol of the body carrying the soul); and that night they caught nothing. There meditation was filled with thought, so therefore they caught nothing.
Jn:21:6: And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship (the right hemisphere of the brain, divine thoughts), and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. They caught many fish ( higher spiritual things) Jn:21:11: Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
153 is a symbol of normal human consciousness, it equals NINE which is the physical, this verse is saying that this lower mind (nine) was overcome because they drew out the higher consciousness, and overcame the lower symbolized by NINE.
Mt:8:26: And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Jesus, a symbol of the higher creating a calm within the turbulent thinking mind. Mk:6:41: And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven 5+2 equals seven, the seven chakras. The meaning of ships in biblical mythology.
Remember that the bible is veiled, you are reading dark sayings , which is mythology, mythology reveals things that go on in the mind. All of the verses in the bible talking about ships and trading etc.. are not literal, but symbolic. The SEA is symbol of the desires and passions, the turbulent emotional mind or the calm seas of the regenerated mind.
SHIPS A symbol of the lower mental or casual vehicle of the soul. "but the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves, for the wind was contrary" mat 14:24 Notice the wording of the verse below, notice it says, "you used to say that I am a ship" What is being said here, is that someone was calling a person a ship. Tyre, you used to say: I am a ship." (Ez.27:1-3). Making reference to the vehicle or container of the soul (the body)
"Your frontiers stretched far out to sea; those who built you made you perfect in beauty." (Ex.27:4). The soul that was made perfect used to be stretched out to frontiers, in other words, the higher mind had encompassed the thinking, that's when you were a child, and the ego has not yet set in. "Then you were rich and glorious, surrounded by the seas" (Ez.27:25). Rich and glorious signifies that the consciousness has married up with the lower mind, surrounded by the seas ( the emotional mind).
"The east wind ( spirit) has shattered you (the ego), surrounded by the seas (the turbulent emotional mind). Your riches, your goods, your cargo, your crew, your sailors, your caulkers, your commercial agents, all the soldiers you carry with you, the whole host who are aboard; (all of the above represent all of the negative thoughts that arise out of lower mind thinking, especially the lower emotional out-bursting mind, these are riches of the lower nature, this is trading gold in Tarshish), all will sink surrounded by the seas (emotional outbursts) on the day of your shipwreck." (Ez.27-26-27).
ez 27 Your riches, and your fairs, your merchandise, your mariners, and your pilots (lower thoughts), your caulkers (those thoughts that arise out of the lower mind, that shore up those negative ideas and keep them from leaking), and the occupiers of your merchandise, (the merchandise are the thoughts of the egoic mind), and all your men of war ( negative thoughts), that are in you (your thinking mind), and in all your company which is in the middle (The divided mind) of you, shall fall into the middle of the seas in the day of your ruin. The middle of the seas signifies that all of your thoughts still reside in both left and right brain thinking, you are still operating in the duality of mind, it is the ruin of the mind.
Jonah 1:4 But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken. In this verse the lord (the higher quality mind, the higher consciousness, sends out a great wind ( the spirit or electromagnetism from above) and created a tempest ( storms to break apart this lower ego mind) the ship will be broken, this is the higher breaking down the lower mental aspects of the soul and nature.
Ok, you can see the meaning of ships on the links page, but I put these up, so that you can see that we dealing with deep symbolism about the mind. The ship is your body and the precious cargo is the soul/mind. Getting back to fishing
In the story of Jonah and the great fish, Jonah jumps overboard and swallowed up by the fish and three days later the fish pukes up Jonah, and he becomes a minister.
Does anyone ever get the idea that this story is impossible to take literally, of course it's not literal, it's bible spiritual symbolism. The ship is your physical body, Jonah (the soul), gets tired of rowing his own boat, meaning trying to do everything on his own, always beating his head against the wall.
Jonah is you and I, trying to figure everything out for ourselves, and constantly being snared by the lower egoic thinking, it usually turns out bad for everyone if we keep this kind of thinking up for any length of time. Jonah jumping overboard and being swallowed by the fish is a symbol of you and I relinquishing ourselves over to a higher authority WITHIN us, the higher consciousness at the right hemisphere of the brain.
Fish is a symbol of god as the great spirit that offers protection, if we will allow ourselves to be swallowed up in him, the ocean represents the turbulent seas, which is a symbol of the emotions, while being in the safe place, in the inner realms of consciousness, one can ride out the storms of life. The third day of the resurrection of Jesus, as the sun is in the winter solstice three days, and then rises 1 degree on the 4th day, resurrecting. Three is just a symbol of new things, a new beginning. That's why when Jonah was puked out on the beach after three days, he became a minister.
This means that Jonah ( you and I), after being enveloped in the higher consciousness, now minister these great blessing, and good thoughts to the rest of the body.
When we enter into mediation, using our pole and hook, we can catch more fish, if we cast our lines (nets) to the RIGHT side side we can catch 153 fish, 153 equals NINE, the number of consciousness in Greek. It means that your consciousness is raised to a higher state.
Fish are symbols of spiritual things caught in meditation, these fish are actually angels or angles of light, they are angles of electromagnetism, it is only electromagnetism that can change circuits in the brain and bring about a change in consciousness, the ancients myth writers used the word angels to describe cosmic radiation.
Edgar Cayce said this " That which we call ELectricity, is god in action"
God is LIGHT, light is Electricity.
Mantak Chia above, is catching angles of light in meditation, (fishing)
Gazing at a tarot key is going fishing. The images on the cards are the bait that we throw into the cosmic waters to attract our revelations. "Meditation modifies and transmutes the personal expression of this cosmic energy." Case says. Meditation melts all the subconscious layers of anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, and fear built up over years and years leaving you in perfect mental and emotional balance, and more importantly, puts you in direct contact with the original wu-chi or source of all.
It is easy to see why they have more friends, healthier relationships, and feel a great deal more satisfied and content with their lives. Angels in the myths are the gods messengers, therefore what is being said is that angles of light carry a message from the cosmos, and if you go fishing you can catch these angles/angles.
Then, "Ive got mail" The problem with the world is nobody ever went to the mailbox, the mailbox is on the right side of the street.
Meditation opens the right hemisphere of the brain, taking control of the senses away from the left side, Cain, Esau etc....This is gods pleasant portion, it's the garden of Eden, where god delights. Verse 2. "The Lord GOD has sworn by His holiness, 'Behold, the days are coming upon you when they will take you away with meat hooks, and the last of you with fish hooks.'"
Meaning God has sworn, the higher consciousness is saying that it will not leave you hanging onto your ego forever. Meat hooks are a symbol of the lower mind, this will be taken away in those days that are coming, and the last, those who have prevailed, will be taken with fish hooks ( meditation).
In Joshua's story we find that he commanded the sun and moon to stand still, while he slew his enemies. We must still the sun ( the intellect, which is part of the three natures that must be put into the fire), the moon ( the lower emotions). Here we are facing a fact within ourselves. The enemies are the thoughts that come against you every moment of your waking life.
Every initiate must be able to command these forces within himself to be still, in other words he must be able to still his lower desires, so that this power can pass up the spine in safety and bring about illumination. The sun, the intellect, the moon, the emotions, must be brought to stillness within, this is meditation. This is the beginning of the overcoming of the five senses. The five wounds of Jesus, and the five smooth stones picked by David to slay the beast, the five wise and foolish virgins etc....

JOHN CRAMER PHYSICIST
What we have seen is John Cramer's transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics.
John Cramer is a very prestigious physicist and basically this interpretation shows how the unseen energies that exist all around us and within us , work.
This is the diagram of how what we call the holy spirit or Jesus, or God, or whatever, makes physical contact with you and how you respond to that contact and open the door for the entrance.
This is scientifically 100% correct and understanding it will make you eliminate the need for faith , so you can take part in the actual transition to the new mind, the new you, the really Born Again You.
As we usually do I want to show you John Cramer's credentials so that you know we are dealing with a credible witness.
The following is from Bill at hidden meanings
Click on these links to see the science of how it all work, the angle/wave is collapsed to a dot, by the act of observation.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning ( you), how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High." Isaiah 14:12-14
This is describing when the light that you are, entered the body, you fell from your lofty estate, because the light is overwhelmed with the animal nature. Daniel: "I have given man the mind of an animal, til seven times passes by for him" North is the emotional nature in biblical mysticism.
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee." Ezekiel 28:12-15
Until you entered that flesh pot of Egypt, you were perfect beauty before that time.
Rev 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. That's the seven chakras.
The healing of the Soul of man comes through the wand or staff of Mercury or Hermes, the messenger, it is the spine.
This is the staff of Aesclepius, the doctor on board the Argosy, whose sailors sought the Golden Fleece or Ram of Aries (Colchis) at the top of the spine, the Aries-Libra axis. This staff is the symbol of healing (Raphael) used by the medical profession, in complete ignorance of its real meaning.
We do not heal disease by this staff of the spine - it is the blindness (materialism) of the Lower Self that is removed. Once removed, there is nothing left but clarity of mind, like a sea of glass. the kundalini burns up the dross of the lower nature (ego) in the body, and then only the real you is left. "man know thyself" Lazarus has been raised from the dead animal personality.
Meditation is the process of reuniting the soul with Spirit. The soul, descending from the source into flesh, manifests its consciousness and life force through seven chakras, or centers of light, in man's cerebrospinal axis.
Encased in the human body, the soul consciousness and life force become identified with the physical vehicle and its mortal limitations . Real meditation awakens the soul consciousness in the seven cerebrospinal centers. In a state of divine recollection, the soul realizes its immortal nature and origin.
(Paramahansa Yogananda wisely cautioned devotees against the erroneous thought, "I am God." One should realize, rather, "God has become myself." The soul is like a wave on the sea-bosom of Spirit. The soul wave is one with the Sea, But the wave is not the Sea.) Namaste
In conclusion to be an angler and catch good edible (spiritual fish), one must enter within ones self in darkroom meditation, with music . The hook is meditation, the bait is taking no thought, the higher light/angels/angles cannot enter within your consciousness if you're thinking, thinking is repulsive to god, because thought comes from the carnal mind, and the carnal mind is enmity against god, and god is NOT subject to your carnal mind, neither can he be, says the scripture.
Meditation and music
Every thought you have is carnal, because it comes from the mind, and the scripture says the mind is carnal, you may say well I don't think about sex all the time, or I don't think about doing evil things all the time, no, maybe you don't all the time, but you do some of the time, and that's the left brain, and when we stay in the left brain our whole lives, we are eating from the tree of good AND evil, you see. The tee of life is the right brain, the tree is planted eastward, by gods right hand. That's the right hemisphere of the brain, that is desolate and full of weeds, that's the desolation of the abomination, it's an abomination to god, because we have never returned back to the garden, unity consciousness.
You must learn and practice to stop all thinking ( that's the carnal mind), as Jesus did when he sent the multitudes away , the multitudes are the ever non stop thoughts that hover about in your mind second to second. You have to release the button on the microphone of your ham radio set (mind), in order to listen to the other fellow. You have to stop talking, so that he can talk. You must elevate yourself above the thoughts of the mind, that's where the fish are.
When you are sitting, listening to music, and you begin to reach a state of no thought, you can begin to catch some of these fish (angles of light), messenger particles. These messenger particles can then download mail directly into your subconscious mind, through the right hemisphere of the brain, to be opened later during waking state.
This meditation, taking no thought stimulates the right side of the brain, that's the father in the biblical story, the father is the right hemisphere of the brain. Remember where Jesus sits, at the RIGHT hand of the father, where is the kingdom of god? Look not lo here nor lo there, for the kingdom of god is WITHIN you. Then where is the father? In you. The right hemisphere of the brain.
If everything goes well in meditation one may eventually have a full blown kundalini experience, where the energy of creation that is in your solar plexus can rise up the spine/rod and bring the christ oil up and activate the glands in the head and open the crown chakra, this is the prodigal son returning home to the fathers house. if you never have a kundalini experience, it's OK, because when you are in high meditation, taking no thought, catching fish, you are still being given direction for your life as what to do, what decisions to make etc.. .You are still making progress and stimulating the right brain, gods pleasant portion.
Jesus said TAKE NO THOUGHT for your life etc..FIVE times in Matthew, FIVE is a tip off for you to go beyond the five senses while angling. So for your life, for the answers and direction you need, you have to TAKE NO THOUGHT, just as Jesus said. By the way Buddha said it, krishna said it, the Upanishads said it, Hermes said it, etc....
"In the book of the Egyptians, there were two Egyptians having a conversation, then on of the men said I have to leave now, I have to go fishing a little while, the other fellow understood exactly what he was saying, because he said "will you be fishing in the same cave you fished at a few days ago" He said yeah, it's darker there than the other place I used to fish at".
Jesus said, "What I say to all, I say watch" Buddha said WATCH, krishna said watch. watch what?
Each person has within themselves the same sort of war-peace interaction that goes on continually, each and every day . Decisions to make, reactions to situations, interactions with people all of these things produce mental, physical and emotional reactions inside you that make your inner self constantly in turmoil, bouncing back and forth between happiness and sadness, and there is no real peace to be found. This constant anxiety is always watched by our inner self your Witness. The Witness to the events of your life has always been inside you, silently watching, not judging you, not commenting, not labeling you, and it is inside you right now.
Your two Witness ( the mind and the emotions) is always aware of everything going on inside your mind, and your body. If you can concentrate on stopping your internal chattering and emotional stops and starts, you will be able to stop and evaluate your body’s reactions to situations and your mind’s perception of events. It is at that precise moment when the intuitive center of your being your Witnesses will enter the picture and tell you exactly what to do. With that kind of clarity, you will be able to either stop the actions and reactions that have taken your peace away, or you will be able to begin activities that will bring peace.
For instance, have you been banging your head against the wall struggling with an addiction or a self-destructive behavior for years, knowing that it is causing you terrible suffering? Have your friends and family told you over and over again that you would be happier if you would just stop this foolishness?
Imagine that you are on the outside of yourself watching silently. If you actually saw yourself banging your head against the wall, wouldn’t you step in to stop it? If so, then if your inner self sees you emotionally reacting to events inappropriately, stealing your peace away from you, wouldn’t you want to stop doing that so peace will enter your heart and stay with you? The 108 Meditation will allow you to lose the grip your emotions have on you and let your Witness guide you in healing your mind.
We all set sail through life's waters (the sea of consciousness) that surrounds us, we can either wind up in the north sea (north in biblical mythology is the subconscious mind with all of it's negative input), or we can set sail for the Indian ocean (the EASTERN part) which is the higher mind, the calmest waters in the world, as a sailor who has spent years in the Indian ocean I can attest that at times it was like a sea of glass, without a ripple.
That's the mind we are shooting for, the mind without a ripple, but first you have to find the hidden lighthouse (on the eastern shore), the hidden lighthouse is WITHIN you, it is your true self, and when you find it, you will have arrived at the port of cape good hope, so set sail, throw the tackling overboard, cast off the mooring lines, and heave the anchor up and keep it up. Don't trade in tarshish and tyre, but instead trade with the merchants of the East (the higher spiritual side).
rev :6 Before the throne was something like a sea of glass, similar to crystal. In the midst of the throne, and around the throne were four living creatures full of eyes before and behind.
Here is symbolism describing the higher mind, the sea of glass represents the calm mind at this stage, like a crystal, in the midst of the throne (the higher mind) or god.
The living creatures is the energy that has risen to the head the zodiac represented by the four cardinal points, the same as in the Ezekiel account, the kundalini, the serpent, it is full of eyes, because it sees the contents of your sub consciousness mind.
"Don't be a minister of the LETTER (Literal), because the LETTER (Literal) killeth, but the spirit (spiritual understanding) gives life (meaning to the scripture).
"There are no forgiveness of sins, unless their is shedding of blood"
Heb 9:22 Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.
"Don't be a minister of the letter, for the letter Kills, but the spiritual understanding gived life" to the real meaning of ancient mythology.
The bible says that without the shedding of blood, sins cannot be forgiven.
Sin is the moon god of Chaldeas of UR, Sin represents the moon mind, because what ever is shown on it, it reflects back, this is how we become very emotional towards things said by others.
Blood is a symbol of the life force in you, unless you shed the life force, that feeds the emotions, sin cannot be forgiven. Every time you enter into meditation, you are shedding the life force, and are cutting off the power of the thoughts of the mind from coming against you, this is the meaning of the shedding of blood and the forgiveness of sin.
You cannot shed your inner life force unless you replace it with the higher spiritual force from above, your life force consists of the emotions and lower mind thoughts, it must be shed or discarded. That's why Joshua had to command the sun and the moon to stand still, so he defeat the enemy, the enemy is your own lower mind, and all the thoughts that come from that cesspool. Joshua was shedding his inner life force ( cesspool ) when he made the inner sun ( mind ) and the moon ( the lower emotions ) to stand still within his own mind. That's what taking NO thought does, that's the way of meditation. SIN is the emotions that must be quelled in the state of No mind, as Jesus and Buddha both taught.
Christians are quick to scoff at the absurdity of other religions when most fail to realize they worship a book that contains talking snakes, bushes and donkeys.
Two men are talking on the street.
'And how's your son? Is he still unemployed?'
'Yes, he is. But he is meditating now.'
'Meditating? What's that?'
'I don't know, but it's better than sitting around doing nothing!'
Boat of Ra
"immediately in the fair way of the course of Afu-Ra in the division of the duat (dual mind), in the third division ( the cycle of life on the mental plane), the three lower parts of our nature. is a group of eight gods who bear on their shoulders a long pole like object which terminates in a bulls head.
( The bulls head is of coarse a symbol of the lower ego mind, a symbol of the lower quaternary ), and eight figures supporting the pole is the higher consciousness, as gods number is always eight, the pole represents the (duality of mind) passing through a long tunnel ( this passage signifies the incarnation of the self (afu-ra) in the lower nature (earth).
The boat is also pulled by twelve and sometimes seven, the twelve represent the 12 signs of the zodiac, as well as the 12 cranial nerves (gates) of the brain. And when you see seven oarsmen, this is the seven chakras.
River of life
In the progressive life on the lower plane of thought, the ego, or lower consciousness, has before and above him the higher mind, as it were a great river which the consciousness in the casual body (mystical boat). This union of the higher and lower selves requires that the lower self in all its qualities shall become perfect and identical with the higher self (mystical boat of Ra).
"may the soul of Ani come forth with thee into heaven, may he go forth in the matet boat. may he come into port in the Sektet boat, and may he cleave his dath among the never resting stars in the heavens" The egyptian.
May the perfected soul come forth and unite with the self on the buddhic plane, may he go forth as the personality in the period of involutution. may he when perfected come into the heaven of attainment and peace within, as the individuality, and may he rise triumphant among the the divine egos who scinillate knowledge on the atmic plane.
"Even if thou wert the greatest of all sinners, thou shalt be able to cross over all sins in the boat of wisdom" bhagavad gita
How ever strangely the soul may be bound by the desires of lower mind thinking and emotions, yet the time arrives when liberation be brought about by the souls own efforts to rise to a higher consciousness. There is no purifier in the world compared to wisdom and knowledge. And he who loses his life ( kills the ego), shall find it.
"Buddha will deliver by the boat of knowledge the distressed world, borne helplessly along, from the ocean of misery which throws up sickness as it's foam, tossing with the waves of old age, and rushing with the dreadful onflow of death."Buddha
The self will be the means of delivering the qualities from the place of the lower emotions by wisdom, so that they may be transmuted to the higher Buddhic thought, and no more assailed and swayed by the lower emotions (sickness).
The nausea which afflicts the ego so long as it is unsatisfied by the true knowledge and perceptions of the higher nature. the tossing is a symbol of the unrest in the mind which causes insecurity in the lower self, the rushing signifies a sense of dread of the unknown, a departure of the personality, also a symbol of the bottomless pit, where all the desires, passions and emotions arise, it is bottomless, as any living being can testify.
When one overcomes the desires of the lower mind, he or she is the true captain of their boat or ship, they have arrived at the the hidden lighthouse of wisdom within their own self.
As can be seen, all of the boat and ship mythologies in the Egyptian, Greek and the Bible myths are talking about the boat (the physical body), (carrying the soul to a higher plane, or higher consciousness), but do not trade in tarshish or Tyre, or other places on the coast (outer realms of consciousness) Lower mind thoughts, or you will become shipwrecked.
The connection between the right brain, which is responsible for filing away the pure experiential information from our senses, and the left brain, which is responsible for immediately processing, abstracting and categorizing that data, is a delicate balance.
The lack of communication between the two hemispheres of the brain in a subject with a severed corpus callosum clearly demonstrates the important connection between experience and abstraction. It is both of these together that utilize our entire brain, and therefore there should exist a balance between the two forms of knowledge, abstract and experiential.
Perception on the lower mental plane discloses the astral plane with it's passions and desires which have to be controlled and outgrown ere the ego can reach the higher planes of consciousness (the father shore). When the sea of desire and strife is crossed, wisdom and love are gained.
There are many who look with disgust upon that man who flies into a rage and and shamefully beats a child, a dog or horse, while within the soul of the spectator is a sea surging back and forth in surely irritable moods, like the open and broad expanse of the open ocean, never tranquil and still like an island lake. AB Olston
Typhon and set, the adversary is a symbol of the desire principle on the astral plane (the sea). The transformation of fire are first of all sea, and the other half lightning flash.
In the Egyptian mythology, Ra ( your soul) set out and went over the whole sea, but as no more enemies (things of the lower desire mind) were seen, they returned to Egypt, traveling by night (meditation).
For what is denoted by the title of the seam, but the whole worlds bitterness raging in the destruction of the righteous, the psalmist said, "he gathererth the waters of the sea together as in a skin" For the lord gathereth the waters of the sea as in a skin, when disposing all things with a wonderful governance. He restrains the threats of the carnal, pent up in their hearts. thus, the lord treadeth upon the waves of the sea. For when the storms of persecution lift up themselves, they are dashed in pieces in astonishment at his miracles. Book of Job.

Cast off the lines, set sail in your boat, head out to sea in the middle of the night, tuck your oars in, set your pole in the water under the moonless night, and wait with bated hook......
Then catch some rays under the night sky. Angles of LIGHT

The dissolution or transformation of the ego, the mind from it's lower state to it's highest potential
That's your entire Bible story, of course Christians are so dummied down they will never see it. To them Satan or the Devil is a real being created by god, well it's true he is, but it is the ego, and the ego was created by god. Not a guy in a red suit with horns, but the mind under the control of the animal five senses, also known as Lucifer and many many other names.
Now we hear from Satan ( your ego ): "I come before you, a former liar, cheat and thief, a former narcissist, alcoholic, and addict, having place my own wants and greed, as chief concern".
Cook is a symbol of the cooking off of the alchemical calcination of the animal nature within the pot ( the mind or head). The chief cook knows how to bring everything to a boil within his/herself, thereby distilling the spirit from the lower gross animal mind, from lead to gold. The act of meditation gets the pot boiling.
God gives the parable of the bronze cooking pot or cauldron (Ezekiel 24:3-14)
This imagery is repeated in certain respects from Ezekiel 11:1-13, where the people considered themselves protected within Jerusalem's walls ( within ones own consciousness) from outside ( thoughts from the lower consciousness) trouble as meat in a cauldron is protected from the flames of a cooking fire. In the earlier passage God had said the city's populace would not remain protected but would be "dumped out" of the cauldron.
in Ezekiel 22:2, the city is again referred to as "the bloody city" (24:6, 9)—guilty of the shed blood of her own people. In this context, mention is made of "scum" or "encrusted deposits .
Ezekiel said Jerusalem was like a pot now encrusted, whose deposit will not go away! In the fire of God’s judgment Jerusalem’s ( your minds) “impurities” floated to the surface. Her ( the minds) corruption could not be hidden. She (the mind) was as unappealing as rusty scum floating on the surface of a meal being cooked.
This stuff is purely Buddhic, which is also Hermetic .
The meal ( that which is eaten daily, consumed, means consumed by the mind) was ruined by the rusty scum, so the contents of the pot were dumped. People ( thoughts of the mind) in Jerusalem ( your consciousness) who had felt secure from Babylon’s onslaught ( the destruction of the ego) would be dragged from the city ( the cleansing of the mind) into exile with no regard for their position in society. Get rid of the scum.
The empty pot ( Jerusalem the consciousness that fell back to the lower thinking, empty) was to be set on the coals and its impurities melted away. The city ( this lower conscious state) itself had to be destroyed to remove its impurities.
God told Ezekiel in 24, to live out a parable in front of the city of Jerusalem. The front of the city is the mind.
Get a pot ( your consciousness). Fill it with water. Gather the choice cuts of meat from the choice of the flock. Burn the bones under the pot. Bring it to a boiling point. Pile wood under the pot. Dump the meat and broth out.
Put it back on the fire and burn the scum out of it. The fire is the purifying spark of god, as god is always a consuming fire, coming to do war with the ego ( satan)
So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said to her on the next day, Give your son, that we may eat him: and she has hid her son.
Sons are misguided thoughts from the lower egoic thinking, you are to boil these things and eat them, consume them in the fire from above. and she ( the lower emotional mind hid her son, in other words these lower thoughts were kept harbored in the lower mind, and hid, but must be sought out and eaten).
By cups, chalices, vials, bottles, the same is signified as they are the things contained in them. The literal sense of the word is a containing vessel. In the bible all of these things is meant the human head, the cranium, the chalice, cup or bottle.
It is this container ( the head/skull) that houses the workings of gods temple, the pia mater, the dura mater, the holy of holys, the pineal gland etc....This is Solomons temple, although not completed. The completion begins in meditation, taking no thought, in silence in seven years.
Turning water into wine is a symbol of the purified psyche, or soul, with the indwelling divine wisdom.
Cleaning the INSIDE of the cup is also a symbol of this internal cleaning process, that is the result of meditation ( the broom).
Luke 11:39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. 11:40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?
You can't put new wine into old bottles ( wineskins ).
Matt 9:17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved
Wine is a symbol of truth and wisdom, these things caught while fishing ( catching angles/angels).
Bottle (wineskins) a symbol of the physical head.
You cannot put new wine (truth and understanding) in old bottles (wineskins), people that are full of themselves, and already know everything (Christians), because it causes that person to revolt from this teaching, and will bring ruin to them and you, both will suffer if you try and give the lower minded person higher spiritual knowledge, an heated argument will surely arise at some point, both will walk away frustrated.
Teachers, "leave those Christians (kids) alone, they are not yet ready to become a new bottle.
But you can share it with those on the same path of understanding, put new wine (knowledge) into new bottles (those that are ripe), both will walk away with understanding and no hurt feelings.
In closing, please remember what Jesus said in the parable. As He concludes this parable, He says:
“And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, ‘The old is better.’” The old wine ) knowledge and wisdom from the ancient days, the mystery school teachings of Hermes, Buddha etc...
Chief cook and bottle washer
Everything has a spiritual meaning. NOT LITERAL, NEVER LITERAL, that's for carnally minded Christians.
The entire Bible from cover to cover is talking about your mind/soul that has taken up residence in that bag of skin (flesh pot of Egypt) , that must be cleansed with the fire from above. The bible is largely hermetic alchemy and astrology, showing the relationship between astronomy and anatomy, as above, so below.
The Bible is full of alchemy, you see it all over the place especially in the book of Ezekiel and Daniel.
The hermetic calcination process of distilling the spirit or whole person that you are from the lower nature happens when one takes up the great work and seeks within in meditation, them the pot begins to boil.
"Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, write thee the name of the day, even of this same day: the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day."
Nine is the number of consciousness, the two tens are 1+1=2, 9+2= 11, eleven is the number of duality of mind. You can't serve god and mammon at the same time etc...The king of Babylon is the EGO in this story.
And utter a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set it on, and also pour water into it:
Notice it says that this is a parable, of course this stuff is never literal, the rebellious house, is left brain, it is living off of the lower ego consciousness.
The pot is the brain, more closely it is the consciousness of a person. water is a symbol of truth poured out from above, angles of light from above. Water also means magnetism.
Gather the pieces thereof into it, even every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder; fill it with the choice bones.
Take the choice of the flock, and burn also the bones under it, and make it boil well, and let them see the the bones of it therein.
Putting meat and bones and such into the pot is symbolic of putting your animal nature in this pot (cauldron), to burn these things symbolizes the consciousness, consciousness is always associated with fire in the bible. Prometheus stole fire from heaven and gave it to man. This fire is always kindling within, meditation causes the fire to roar.
Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city, to the pot whose scum is therein, and whose scum is not gone out of it! bring it out piece by piece; let no lot fall upon it.
The bloody city is the mind, it is the place where the animal nature is killed, here the scripture is saying that after all the lower nature is boiled out by god in this pot ( your consciousness), there's still some stuff left on the bottom, this scum has to be further removed from the psyche by the right hemisphere of the brain ( the father)
For her blood is in the midst of her; she set it upon the top of a rock; she poured it not upon the ground, to cover it with dust;
The blood, life force, negative thoughts in the midst of her ( your consciousness)
That it might cause fury to come up to take vengeance; I have set her blood upon the top of a rock, that it should not be covered.
The fury is the fury of the lower mind as it tries t stay rooted in it;s lower senses, to take vengeance on the higher mind, means to ignore the inner impulse to try an attain a higher mind via meditation.
The lower mind scum is so rotten that god says let no lot fall on it, it must be removed by the hazmat team, that's how bad it is. God and his angels/angles of light, electromagnetism is the hazmat team.
The blood ( life force) if this lower mind,in the midst of her, is the center of the brain where the rock is ( the pineal gland) that is responsible for stoking the fire that is already kindling. The rock (pineal) shall not be covered, one that is in meditation.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great.
God will consume the ego consciousness with the consuming fire that he is.
Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and spice it well, and let the bones be burned.
Then set it empty upon the coals thereof, that the brass of it may be hot, and may burn, and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it, that the scum of it may be consumed.
Brass is a symbol of two elements copper and tin, duality of mind, brass in alchemy is but another symbol of the type of lower mind that operates from the five senses only, desires of the flesh, wealth, look at me, aren't I something, you get the idea.
The coals are symbols of the purifying spark of god, or the right hemisphere of the brain. Brass is a symbol of stubborn hard headed mind, these bones have to be pulverized before one can begin to understand the nature of the parable and allegory and climb the MT. of attainment in meditation. In other words all of the things of the physical nature must be completely broken down and discarded.
She hath wearied herself with lies, and her great scum went not forth out of her: her scum shall be in the fire.
In thy filthiness is lewdness: because I have purged thee, and thou wast not purged, thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest upon thee.
Here God will be the fury that comes against the lower mind, the mind will have no rest from the lower thinking, until gods fury comes against it and purges out the lie that the ego is.
The higher consciousness has purged the mind, yet it fell back to it;s original state, as one who falls short every day, now god has to up the anti in order to kill the beast. "till I have caused my fury to rest upon thee." Rest upon the, means this higher state will cover this ego like a blanket and give it no where to hide, it cannot hide in the cliffs and in the rocks.
I the LORD have spoken it: it shall come to pass, and I will do it; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent; according to thy ways, and according to thy doings, shall they judge thee, saith the Lord GOD.
God, your higher self, the higher divine consciousness within your own self, says that it will not give up until this enemy is completely annihilated
Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy tears run down.
Do not be disturbed by the loss of ego control, for some it is the dark night, the ego (satan) has a very powerful grip on the mind and it's thinking process, but do not weep over the loss of this tyrant and destroyer of life.
Forbear to cry, make no mourning for the dead, bind the tire of thine head upon thee, and put on thy shoes upon thy feet, and cover not thy lips, and eat not the bread of men. So I spake unto the people in the morning: and at even my wife died; and I did in the morning as I was commanded.
Do not cry for the dead, the dead animal mind, the tire is a symbol of the ego consciousness, put your shoes, ( go ahead and keep operating from ego consciousness), bread of men, means the thoughts of the lower egoic world, the people are the thoughts that arise from lower mind speaking, god speaking to these, is a symbol of the higher consciousness, speaking to the lower mind. Morning is a symbol of meditation. The wife is a symbol of the lower emotional thinking, this type of thinking has to killed out of the psyche.
And the people said unto me ( your thoughts), Wilt thou not tell us what these things are to us ( the mind is waiting for egoic thinking to guide it), that thou doest so? ( where art thou Mr ego).
Then I answered them (Ezekiel, the higher mind), The word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Speak unto the house of Israel ( the house of Israel, are those pure thoughts that enter within ones consciousness as they are heaved up from lower thinking),
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will profane my sanctuary God will profane the sanctuary, this profanity is not really profanity, it means that god will imbue into the psyche his higher divine wisdom, this in itself is profanity to the ego, the higher mind is profane to the lower, it delights in it not),
The excellency of your strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soul pitieth; and your sons and your daughters whom ye have left shall fall by the sword, sons and daughters are symbols of thoughts that were born out of lower mind thinking, god will put these sons and daughters to the sword).
The higher mind killing the thoughts of the lower.
And ye shall do as I have done: ye shall not cover your lips, nor eat the bread of men. Lips are a symbol of the things said, you no longer have to cover your lips ( watch what you say) because the words that come out of your mouth are a sweat as honey to all that cross your path), do not eat ( consume) the bread ( thoughts and ideas) from men ( the lower mind).
And your tires shall be upon your heads, and your shoes upon your feet: ye shall not mourn nor weep; but ye shall pine away for your iniquities, and mourn one toward another. Thus Ezekiel is unto you a sign: according to all that he hath done shall ye do: and when this cometh, ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
More symbolism of the purifying spark of god killing out the ego. You will know that I am the lord in that day. The conquering of one's own ego is the Armageddon story at the back of the bible, it's called Armageddon for a good reason. The ego shall slowly dissolve (pine away) from ones consciousness.
Also, thou son of man ( the son of man is the renewed mind, it is the ego that has changed clothes, it is the emperor, yet he has no clothes, no falsity),
shall it not be in the day when I take from them their strength, the joy of their glory ( taking the power away from Esau, the lower left, or egoic thinking), the desire of their eyes ( eyes are a symbol of the illusions we see with these organs of sense, the eyes are deceived, by the matrix, we see in the outer world), and that whereupon they set their minds ( what are the the thoughts that are in there), their sons and their daughters, That he that escapeth in that day shall come unto thee, to cause thee to hear it with thine ears?
Those remaining parts of the ego, the sons and daughters that had escaped the great and terrible day of the lord, will be eventually be brought under the control of the higher mind ( god ). These remaining fragments of the ego will hear the calling from above.
In that day shall thy mouth be opened to him which is escaped, and thou shalt speak, and be no more dumb: and thou shalt be a sign unto them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
The complete conversion of the ego from it's lower ( dumb) state to it's higher god mind. I didn't say that the go was dumb, god did!
Hermes To Cairo, who is about to close the door
Cairo Eh! friend, was it you who knocked so loudly? Tell me.
Hermes No, I was going to knock and you forestalled me by opening. Come, call your master quick, then his wife and his children, then his slave and his dog, then yourself and his pig.
Cairo And what's it all about?
Hermes It's about this, rascal! Zeus wants to serve you all with the same sauce and hurl the lot of you into the Barathrum.
Cairo Well then! make use of your legs and hop on one leg upon the wineskin, to while away the time.
Hermes Oh! the grilled entrails I used to swallow down!
Cairo Your own have got the colic, I think.
Hermes Oh! the delicious tipple, half-wine, half-water!
Cairo Here, take this and be off.
Meditate above the thoughts of the mind, separate from thought ( the multitudes ), there you will catch fish ( angles/angels) of light. Then you will cleansing the inside of the cup, you will be bringing about the boiling of the animal nature with all of it's entrails, bones etc.., and in this state distill the pure self from the lower gross animal body ( these flesh pots of egypt ), this is ego, this the devil, this is what god does in the bible, he comes after this ego with a vengeance in your mediation, it doesn't happen any where else, or at any other time.
Matthew 14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
That's meditation, that's where you have to find, you have to alone and set yourself apart from the thoughts ( the multitudes), and raise your consciousness to the upper room.
The meditators above are fulfilling all of the teachings of the Emerald tablet, the Bible, Buddhas teachings, krishnas etc... It's very simple, all of the spiritual books are just detailed accounts of the process, there is no need to understand details, just you ( your mind ) get out of the way, and let the process happen gradually as you sit and shutdown the thoughts of the mind. You MUST send the multitudes away, the new mind cannot be born in the inn ( the busy mind ), it must be born out of the animal nature ( the manger ). So who's the peck of the manger? Why the Pharaoh is, but you have to allow Jesus to become the peck of the manger ( your higher conscious mind, your higher self, Christ, Buddha, Krishna etc...).
Your animal nature being burned up in the alchemical process of meditation
You know that very well, only you don't have to remember the past in the same way you don't have to think about how you work your thyroid gland, or whatever else it is in your organism. You don't have to know how to shine the sun. You just do it, like you breath. Doesn't it really astonish you that you are this fantastically complex thing, and that you're doing all this and you never had any education in how to do it? Never learned, but you're this miracle?
The point of it is, from a strictly physical, scientific standpoint, this organism is a continuous energy with everything else that’s going on. And if I am my foot, I am the sun. Only we’ve got this little partial view. We’ve got the idea that ‘No, I’m something IN this body.’ The ego. That’s a joke. The ego is nothing other than the focus of conscious attention. It’s like the radar on a ship.
The radar on a ship is a troubleshooter. Is there anything in the way? And conscious attention is a designed function of the brain to scan the environment, like a radar does, and note for any trouble making changes. But if you identify yourself with your troubleshooter, then naturally you define yourself as being in a perpetual state of anxiety. And the moment we cease to identify with the ego and become aware that we are the whole organism, we realize first thing how harmonious it all is. Because your organism is a miracle of harmony. All these things functioning together.
Even those creatures that are fighting each other in the blood stream and eating each other up. If they weren’t doing that, you wouldn’t be healthy. So what is discord at one level of your being is harmony at another level. And you begin to realize that, and you begin to be aware too, and that the discords of your life and the discords of people’s lives, which are a discord at one level, at a higher level of the universe are healthy and harmonious. you suddenly realize that everything you are and do is at that level as magnificent and as free of any blemish as the patterns in waves. The markings in marble. The way a cat moves. And that this world is really OK. Can’t be anything else, because otherwise it couldn’t exist.”
“The common error of ordinary religious practice is to mistake the symbol for the reality, to look at the finger pointing the way and then to suck it for comfort rather than follow it.”
You don't look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.
Psalm 82:6 I have said, You are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
Ye are gods” (Jn. 10:34-35). Then, Jesus affirmed the authoritative force of Scripture by saying, “the scripture cannot be broken” (Jn. 10:35
But I'll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything.
In other words, a person who is fanatic in matters of religion, and clings to certain ideas about the nature of God and the universe, becomes a person who has no faith at all.
“We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.”

“A priest once quoted to me the Roman saying that a religion is dead when the priests laugh at each other across the altar. I always laugh at the altar, be it Christian, Hindu, or Buddhist, because real religion is the transformation of anxiety into laughter.”

“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.”

“The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.”
Alan Wilson Watts, The Culture of Counter-Culture: Edited Transcripts
“Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are. In our culture, of course, they’ll say you’re crazy and you’re blasphemous, and they’ll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing). However if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, ‘My goodness, I’ve just discovered that I’m God,’ they’ll laugh and say, ‘Oh, congratulations, at last you found out.”
Alan Wilson Watts, The Essential Alan Watts
God is the RIGHT hemisphere of your brain, that's the Father in the Bible. Cain, Esau and 100's of others in the bible stories, represent the left waring brain ( the ego center of consciousness).
Michael Angelo's famous Sistine Chapel painting, showing god inside an actual human brain.
What you are actually seeing is the Right hemisphere of your brain, reaching out and touching the left hemisphere of the brain ( Adam) and unifying the consciousness.
This is what happens when Satan ( your egoic thinking ) is controlling the thoughts of the mind
SHUTDOWN the left side, and the ONLY way to do that, is to stop thinking, take NO THOUGHT!!!! When you do that you null and void the left side, he will become INACTIVE.
The entire of the ancients texts are talking about this problem of the left brain vs the right brain, ALL of THEM.
When we stay stuck in the left brain, in duality thinking, we manifest the Jekyll and Hide scenario within our own lives daily.
The left brain at your level
The snakes are in there
Half dead and half alive means operating in the duality of mind, eating from the tree of good and evil, this is HEL
The real meaning of all these myths have been staring you right in the face all these thousand of years, yet no one payed attention.

Verses talking about the duality of mind ( consciousness )
“I come from the undivided.” Jesus Christ, Gospel of Thomas"
Jesus said to them, "When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter [the kingdom]."
Jesus said, "A person cannot mount two horses or bend two bows. And a slave cannot serve two masters, otherwise that slave will honor the one and offend the other.
"For this reason I say, if one is whole, one will be filled with light, but if one is divided, one will be filled with darkness."
His disciples said to him, "When will the kingdom come?"
"It will not come by watching for it. It will not be said, 'Look, here!' or 'Look, there!' Rather, the Father's kingdom is spread out upon the earth, and people don't see it."
Jesus said, "Look, I will guide her to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you male. For every female who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of Heaven." To turn the lower emotions ( female ) into male ( the higher christ mind ).
"And I turned, and lifted up my eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass." zach 6:1 Both hemispheres of your brain.
Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am. I am the EGO, the ID, I am Freud in disguise, I am the left emanation, I control the matrix within, I bind you to the earth, you cannot escape me, religious books call me hell, hades, the underworld, the devil, satan and many other bad names, yes it's true, I love being the one in charge, try and challenge me and see what happens. I am the sum of the physical, the intellectual and the emotional nature, I am the cere-bellum, and I like it. Aren't I the cats meow.
I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am unconditioned consciousness, I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.
Jesus sits at the RIGHT hand of the father (the right hemisphere of the brain) Buddha was born out of his mothers RIGHT side without any pain (the birth of the RIGHT hemisphere of the brain). The garden of Eden was planted ate RIGHT side by gods RIGHT hand, all symbols describing the RIGHT hemisphere, that is largely dormant at birth.
The above verse is talking about when the lower left mind (wolf) shall lie down with the lamb (right brain control), and the leopard and so forth, means that the animal nature is transcended by the Little child (the ego less mind).
The right hemisphere (lamb) and the left hemisphere (wild animals) become one, the UNDIVIDED mind, that's where Jesus (the higher sun nature) comes from. That's when you can now control that donkey that you have been riding your whole life.
The bible is one extremely long running cipher about the thoughts that proceed from either the right hemisphere of the brain, or the left side (cain).
Amazing isn't it?
I asked the angel who was speaking with me, "What do these horses mean, sir?" 5 The angel answered, "They are the four spirits of heaven. Our fourfold god given nature, the four quarters of the zodiac, the four winds, the four seasons etc...as above, so below.
Notice that this type of mind has bronze, bronze in alchemy means the lower mind, but nos low as clay and lead, bronze usually means the solar plexus chakra area of consciousness.
In the Bible and Greek mythology, hell is the lower mind (EGO) which is the garbage dump and the upper mind is heaven. Buddha called the lower mind a cesspool, the first three chakras of consciousness. Sodom, Babylon, Egypt, where Jesus was SPIRITUALLY crucified. " And their dead bodies shall lie in the streets of the great city which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." City is the mind, street is the consciousness or thoughts.
The horses pull this chariot/ mind, notice the physical, the intellectual and the emotional nature, but the forth spiritual must take reign.
This is the typical mindset of a religious person, always operating from their emotional nature, instead of the higher mind. This is the bronze mind or lead in alchemy.
You must transmute lead, iron, brass, copper, tin and clay into gold, the others mean the lower religious mind, a person that cannot see reality.
All of the arguments concerning the use of metals, smelting of metals of different types into another completely disappear, when one understands the metaphors and allegory concerning metals in the bible.
It is not referring to LITERAL bronze, brass, Copper, Tin and such, but the mythicists used metals to describe mans state of mind.
So they missed the mark, as all bible literalists do.
Arguing that no such metals were made at that time, or the first metal workers were the Egyptians and Romans and so forth.
The Baghavad Gita is the same in this regard, Arjuna and krishna standing between TWO armies, is an allegorical account of the battles that go on in the field of human consciousness , the two armies are the the thoughts that proceed from the left and right hemispheres of our brains, the physical vs the spiritual.
Mahatma Gandhi, in his commentary on the Gita, interpreted the battle as "an allegory in which the battlefield is the soul and Arjuna, man's higher impulses struggling against evil." Swami Vivekananda also said that the first discourse in the Gita related to war can be taken allegorically. Vivekananda further remarks, "this Kurukshetra War is only an allegory. When we sum up its esoteric significance, it means the war which is constantly going on within man between the tendencies of good and evil."
Krishna a figure of the indwelling light that we are, in the Gita is as a "symbol of the divine dealings with Ego", while Arjuna typifies a "struggling human soul, an allegory of the inner life, and has nothing to do with our outward human life and actions.
The Gita addresses the discord between the senses and the intuition of cosmic order. According to Krishna, the root of all suffering and discord is the agitation of the mind caused by selfish desire, which arises from the ego. The only way to douse the flame of desire is by simultaneously stilling the mind through self-discipline and engaging oneself in a higher form of activity. Thereby shutting the blind king, the left side.
What does the bible say? "be still, and know that I'm god" "They stood still, while god slew their enemies" Who is the enemy "Your enemies are of your own house" Jesus.Your enemies are the lower thoughts that arise from the desire/sense/emotional mind, to stand still, means to still the mind in meditation. And we draw lines in the sand, how ignorant have we been?
However, abstinence from action is regarded as being just as detrimental as extreme indulgence. According to the Bhagavad Gita, the goal of life is to free the mind and intellect from their complexities and to focus them on the glory of the Self by dedicating one's actions to the divine. This goal can be achieved through the Yogas of meditation, action, devotion and knowledge. In the sixth chapter, Krishna describes the best Yogi as one who constantly meditates upon him ( your very own inner self)
(the four abodes/seats namely- Gangotri, Yamnotri, Badrinath and Kedarnath). It is located between the two mountains named Nar and Narayan. In between, the River Alakananda flows.
The two mountains are both hemispheres of the brain, and the river is the same as the biblical river "Jordan" meaning the spinal canal and the spinal fluid, it flows between these two mountains, doesn't it. It's all the same, this exact stuff is in the bible. There are the four rovers/streams, four cerebrospinal ventricles that bathe the brain in spinal fluid..
God will send the sword, famine and pestilence against some figs.
wo baskets of figs 24:2 One basket had very good figs ( the right brain), even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very Naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
"The other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad." Which of course goes to show that God hates figs and fags, at least the "very naughty" kind.
Figs 24:3 Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
24:5 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah ( Judah is a symbol of the east side, or higher consciousness), whom I have sent out of this place ( the lower) into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.
The purification process of the LIGHT or divine ego takes place in HELL, the lower quaternary of our being, below the diaphragm, the first three chakras. This is the only place Hell is, or ever was. This eternal fire eventually purges out the dross, and purifies the ego, so that it may rise to ZION, the higher aspect of the cosmos, the divinity in the flesh as it were.
The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. (2.14)
We have the mind (Higher Mind) of Christ. (2.16)
