What if the Bible is the earliest evidence of an ancient perspective of the human condition, is it possible that the ancient mystics wrote these stories as a book on psychology, is it possible that this is a book on cosmic psychology and 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, we study the Bible from the perspective of the minds at the time, we think how the ancient mystics would have thought.
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.
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 understand the Ultimate Truth.
