Art & Mystery of the Bible
“Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth: and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the Spirit.” Moses Maimonides – Jewish Theologian, historian, Talmudist, philosopher and physician. 1135-1205 C.E.
The Bible is a book on psychology, it is a book on cosmic psychology but hidden behind all of the ancient words are clues to the development of the human mind. The Bible in the Old Testament especially in as much as the thought of the New Testament is mystical with spiritual serendipity.
One of the oldest plays or dramas ever composed is in The Book of Job and it is pure mysticism, it comes from the ancient places in the East. The story incorporates the story of the movement of people Ishmael separating from Abraham which is a metaphysical allegory.
I cannot tell you to believe in anything, we are just discussing and asking if we can reach a level of understanding where we can say this makes sense for a change, if so, we are onto something.
It is possible that the people in the Bible and the stories told about them represent parts of you and aspects of your own mind and that makes it personal but it also opens to you possibilities that are tremendously long range when you think of what is being said and by what authority it is being said, with the question can I connect them to aspects of science, is God provable. Under consideration to find the true meaning of the stories, is there some basis for this being in the Bible, then maybe we have some idea to think there is a cosmic intelligence guiding us.
The Book of Numbers Chapter 2 Verse 9 talks about the tribe of Judah and they are representative of the tribe that camps at the East Point of the rising Sun and they are also called the Children of Light.
We know the constant speed of light to be 186,400 miles per second and if you look at Chapter 2 Verse 9 it numbers the people of the tribe of the Children of Light as 186,400 could this be coincidence or is there a divine hand touching this.
Those are the things you look for in the Bible when you are looking for a kind of influence from a cosmic intelligence, and those are the type of things we should be doing when considering the Bible as a book of Art and Mystery, when you do then these points reveal themselves to you.
We are talking about a mystical approach to interpreting a document in which the truths are hidden and for a specific reason, and the reason is if you take these truths and you use the truth out of the ‘left’ side of the carnal mind you use the truth for riches, you use the truth to put people into bondage, you use the truth to create fear, you build systems that enslave the people and their minds, you take away their Spirit. On the other hand, if you enter into meditation and you sacrifice all the thoughts of the ‘left’ side, now you start awakening the creative energy of the ‘right’ side you start to see the truth in a new light, where you not only see the truth in the document but feel and comprehend the truth from the point of the divine, you comprehend the Ultimate Truth.
The fact is that the truth was hidden.
Though it can be argued that this is an opinion, let’s look at the ideas to show this is Mythology, this is Symbolism, this is Numerology and the whole Mystical spectrum…
Let’s look at some examples:
Here is a description of this what God is trying to convey to us.
Looking at Psalms 78 Verse 2:
I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings from of old, which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us…
This is the Book of Psalms which probably dates back about 4,000 years and it says:
I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings from of old…
And it says:
things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation…
We can therefore consider that the cosmic intelligence is starting to reveal these allegories and mysteries to its people as it is said in scripture “as in the days of old”.
Consider then what the allegories mean, what do the proverbs mean, what the parables mean, what do the hidden meanings mean, so we are fulfilling that.
Here in the Bible it says:
I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings from of old
So, consider what the meaning of “dark saying” is?
If you were not aware we speak in dark sayings constantly, some examples:
“Let’s go shoot the bull…” is a dark saying…
“Bending my ear…” is a dark saying…
“Cut the mustard…” is a dark saying…
“A penny for your thoughts…” is a dark saying…
“Can’t get blood from a stone…” is a dark saying…
Let’s look at understanding the value of “dark sayings”
Proverbs Chapter 1 Verse 2:
To know wisdom and instruction: to perceive the words of understanding:
So, let’s look at what you need to do to know to perceive the words of understanding…
Proverbs Chapter 1 Verse 6:
To understand a proverb, and the interpretation: the words of the wise, and their dark sayings…
So, you need to comprehend then that when you read the Bible and when you read going into the desert it does not mean literally going into the desert it means representatively going into confusion…
Example when Jesus goes into the desert and is confronted by the devil this is a parable for going into confusion, when you go to the desert everything looks the same you don’t know which way to go, which way to turn, you don’t know what to do, and this thing in your head starts speaking to you, this then is like going into the desert being tempted by the Devil if you want to speak in symbolic terms.
Now look at the Old Testament, we look at the stories of Abraham and all the unbelievable things like the story of Moses and Ramesses, when Moses gets to the Red Sea, conveniently it opens up and they go across but we never question that, in fact people go to the Middle East to find out where it was, you have a story of a fish swallowing a guy and survives for a number of days coming out he becomes a preacher, you have a guy who collects two of every kind of animal from all over the world, you have stories about two naked people running around in a garden and they don’t have any clothes on until a talking snake comes along and makes them aware of it, God comes along and says who told you that you are naked and you say the snake did and this is the religion you follow, however all of these stories are parables with hidden meanings:
The Apostle Paul speaks concerning this, that let’s look at Galatians Chapter 4 Verse 22:
For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh: but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory:
When you see this word allegory you can then realise and explore that there is a symbolic meaning because the word allegory means these things did not happen they are deep mystical symbolic stories that that have a content concerning the human mind in the deep realms of consciousness.
This should be enough to explore the Bible from a new viewpoint.
So, we have millions of Christians who believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible, when even the Bible says of God “I will speak in dark saying” and the Bible stating it is ‘Allegorical”, so when then will the blind see?
Here is the Apostle Paul again in the Book 2nd Corinthians Chapter 3 Verse 6 saying:
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.
And we know the Bible has many examples where the letter kills:
They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul: and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.(2 Chronicles 15:12-13)
Death for Adultery:
If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10)
Death for hitting your parents:
Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15)
You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17)
If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed: they have forfeited their lives. (Leviticus 20:13)
A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortune-teller shall be put to death by stoning: they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27)
Here we have expressions that are symbolic in nature but when they are taken literally then it allows one group to hold another group in bondage or do physical harm to one another.
Let’s look at what Yehōshu’a (Jesus) said, this is not Jesus by the way there never was a man called Jesus in Palestine, the name Jesus is a Greek word it was a word out of Greek Mythology because the word Jesus in numerology totals 888 which is the number of the Sun in the sky that is why and where that came from.
The reason you call him Jesus and not Yehōshu’a (Jesus) is that that name is Jewish and the early church was extremely anti-Semitic, these are the people that brought you the Crusades and Inquisitions and they could not deal with anything that was Jewish so they got rid of Yehōshu’a named him Jesus they got rid of Passover and replaced it with Easter.
You would wonder then about all the Christians that sing praise to the name Jesus when they in fact changed the Prophets name.
Let’s look at what Yehōshu’a (Jesus) said Mark Chapter 4 Verse 11:
Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
The key point here is that Yehōshu’a (Jesus) states that unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables, it’s ‘All’ symbolic, those that are without, what does it mean to be without, you are without when you are not within and the only time you are within is when you are self-examining or meditating. So, to those that have no question of the parables and are not self-aware and self-examining or meditating to those ‘All’ of them these are parables. They think they have it all figured out yet they are looking at symbolisms and instead they are taking the symbolisms literally so to the main point of this Verse is:
The point being that God intentionally deceives people, Yehōshu’a (Jesus) continues…
That seeing they may see, and not perceive: and hearing they may hear, and not understand: lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
In another word, these are given symbolically with the intent of deceiving people until they go within, as long as you try to see these parables from the left side of the intellect you are not going to comprehend it, you will not comprehend it, you will be of the letter and not of the Spirit.
So, what is Yehōshu’a (Jesus) saying:
Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God:
If you go within and if you go into meditation you will know the mystery of the Kingdom of God.
So, this is the instruction to go within, to get to know yourself, to establish communication with the divine spark inside you where you will discover the mystery of the Kingdom of God. So what is the mystery of the Kingdom of God?
Let’s look at what Yehōshu’a (Jesus) states about the Kingdom of God Luke Chapter 17 Verse 21:
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
So, what is the promise?
Meditation and self-examination will reveal to you the mystery of the Kingdom of God which is in you and is YOU. Yourself. The mystery of yourself. What is your purpose, where have you come from where are you to go, the instruction on how to connect to the Christ Consciousness to be able to comprehend the flow to be able to know how to raise above all of the things that have come against you.
So, to say again The Kingdom of God is your inner being, the consciousness in you, as said by Yehōshu’a (Jesus) and he said if you go within yourself you will begin to comprehend yourself and your purpose. And that is a beautiful promise.
So, we begin to learn the Eastern way on how to interpret the Bible which is cosmological and physiological. The spiritual, mystical, metaphysical stories about the human condition, a book to guide the Spirit.
So, we need to examine what we have been sold and learn on how to interpret scripture, not just Biblical Scripture, but the Sutras of Buddha, the Vedas of Krishna, the Qur’an, the spiritual guidance is in the tapestry of languages and religions of our civilisations, all saying the same thing.
So what we do and have done is by interpreting these things literally we have distorted the meanings and God’s work in our spiritual evolution, and we are paying dearly for it.
We can see this by the distortion of the values on family, the traditional family has broken up, the traditional family is rotting from within, as a result of the distortion we see the problems of violence, they say because we don’t have any more traditional values, the values system has broken down, the family has broken down, because religion, (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) put the family together with the basic flaw that says in order for the family to be effective one party must submit to the other party, in another words the female must submit to the male.
So, when you take that situation and say, in order for this to succeed one part of the population must submit to the other part of the population than that is an evil premise that makes the family evil and the family will self-destruct. It’s not self-destructing because it is being attacked from the outside it is self-destructing because it is exploding from within. And it will, women will no longer submit to man and they shouldn’t, especially in the feminine age so we see this complete dichotomy towards what we must do, do we need a traditional family do we need to raise our values, yes, but how are we going to do that? The family then must no longer be a one party submitting to another party it must be a co-partnership of equality, total equality.
And we see a statement from Yehōshu’a (Jesus) it is in Matthew Chapter 11 Verse 19, it is a very meaningful statement:
The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
Essentially saying what have you created, look out at the World, then try to comprehend why the mess, so see what you have created in your life, do you want to see why your life is the way it is it is because of what you put into it, what is it going to be like in the future for humanity, it is whatever you put in to it.
So, what are the ways to follow as Yehōshu’a (Jesus) advises wisdom is known by her children, the essence of God and the essence of yourself is Mysterious, a Mystery, the writers of the hidden will lead you to experience the Mystery, remember Yehōshu’a (Jesus) said “Unto you it is given to know the mystery” you are the Mystery, 90% of you is God, 10% of you is yourself.
The unfortunate part is that the 90% is shut off, and the Mystery is how you get the switch to come on to get the God part of you to activate. The creative, the divine part, the right side starts to activate, and the point is you must go to the mountain, in every scripture the prophets went to the mountain, God went to the mountain, Lot went to the mountain, Yehōshu’a (Jesus) went to the mountain, Mohammad went to the mountain. Everyone needs to go to the mountain: the mountain is nothing more than symbolic reference to the highest part in you which is the higher realms of consciousness which you go to through self-examination and meditation.
Moses went to the Mountain and he learned the Mystery.
There is a need and the need is for you to touch that Mystery, the mystery resides in you and it will always stay unwritten.
Here is the mystery, 1 Corinthians Chapter 2 Verse 6:
We speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Touch the mystery within…
The definition of the word Mystery is something of a secret quality, each one of us has a secret, each one of has a closet and in that closet is something no one else knows even the one closest to you does not know the secret. Your meditation will prepare you for the manifestation of this mystery, and your mind in purging (you know it as purgatory) this is when the fire of meditation the electric energy of meditation erases all of those thoughts, quilts and fears from your mind so that you open up the flower of that which is the true self.
So where did this start, let’s look at Moses and where he learned his Mysteries. Acts Chapter 7 Verse 22:
And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians
The fundamentals mysteries clearly came from the Egyptian mythology and the wisdoms and secrets of Egypt. What Moses did was discovered and added to the wisdoms and Mysteries through his relationship with God, but still kept them hidden. That is where the Biblical foundations come from.
And there is a Mystery in all of the ancient cultures, in India it’s the Brahman, in Persia it was Mithra, in Greece the Eleusinian Mysteries, and in China it had Taoism, all of this leads to the Mystery of which you can be part off but was never be able to comprehend and never be able to share.
However, it is an amazing thing, when it starts to bring direction to your physical life, it will mean that you are no longer concerned with whether you will be saved but you will care to comprehend how you can serve the divine principles and contribute to the Universe.
Ignorance, it is said, is a bliss. It is also said that a man called Yehōshu’a (Jesus) said – ”Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” John 8:32. According to the grammar of the alleged statement of Yehōshu’a (Jesus), he spoke of the future. This means that the people to whom he was speaking at that time, did not know the truth he was referring to, nor were they free.
It is written in the Holy Qur’an (3:71) …
0 people of the scripture! Why confound ye the truth with falsehood and knowingly conceal the truth?
This lucidly informs all that the “truth is known” and purposely “concealed” by at least some of the Scholars/Clergy/Rabbinates of Christendom and Judaism.
It is time for the truth to be reconciled.
