At this very moment in time, there is murder and mayhem being witnessed as commonplace, not just here is the USA, but all over the world. Some people will still gather and cheer when someone is killed. People throw parties and celebrate when terrorists blow up buildings and drive car bombs into shopping malls. Beheadings are televised … almost live. Missiles, smart-bombs, remote controlled aircraft with weaponry, grenades vests, suicide bombers, rapes, killing, maiming, beating, violence, home invasions, theft, shootings, stabbings, stranglings … when is it ever going to stop?

Though many may beg to differ, there will NOT be an intervention from God, Jesus, or any other Deity. This is a physical world of matter, not a spiritual realm. You can't drive a boat on an interstate. You can’t bowl in a lake. You can’t fly an airplane underground. And SPIRIT, cannot operate in a physical world UNLESS … that’s UNLESS … it operates though US. WE are the Saviours of mankind. It is OUR responsibility. It is our job to bring ORDER FROM CHAOS, light from darkness, and love from abuse.

Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock … will we keep killing, and keep regressing back to the days of Lynch Mob tactics? Or will we raise our consciousness to a status of Divine love for all creatures and put an end to this madness? Only time will tell. And sadly, I’m afraid I’m too old to see the day when it comes. Just like thousands of civilizations who have come and gone … so too will we ... UNLESS we make that change. Unless we turn the tides. Unless we love one another. We all walk the same Earth, eat the same food, drink the same water, and breathe the same air. The Universe is ONE living organism of which each of us is an integral and inseparable element. There is no "you" and "them" ... There is only "us."

Just a thought …

Prophecy is Impossible - The Future Is Unpredictable

We Can't Predict the Future. Simply because we have not created it yet. Time, Life, unfolds every nanosecond at a time. It is merely a series of ongoing NOWS. All the ever existed, and all that will every exist, are here and now. Everything. Think about it ... where else would it be? Where else would it have gone?

New Year's is a time when people attempt to predict how they will behave in the coming months. Predicting the future is a near impossibility ... unless you base it on repeated thoughts, actions, and events. For example, "if you don's stop drinking, you will damage your liver."

Yet so often we berate ourselves and others for failing to do so. How could we have been so stupid not to have known? Why do we think we should know what will happen? Prediction is extraordinarily hard, even for psychologists in the business of prediction. Moreover, we may want to reconsider whether we would really want to be able to predict the future in the first place. What fun would that be? 

We think we should know what will happen mainly because of the confusion between prediction and hindsight. Knowing in advance that something will occur is very different from knowing that it did occur.

There are numerous ways any event or behavior can later be understood. Take, for example, an animated conversation we witness between two spouses. It could be flirtatious, excited - we don't know. Later, the couple gets divorced. Looking back, we link a causal chain of events to that conversation, concluding that it must have been a disagreement. We should have known they'd get divorced, or so we think.

Scientists have to state their predictions in advance, and they

have to be specific. It is easy to predict that someone will do something nice, for example, if we don't specify when they will do it or what nice means. When psychologists try to predict an outcome, they look at a group of data, not a single instance, to determine what will happen.

A professional basketball player would probably win if he and I each had 20 opportunities at foul shooting; I could win if we each only shot once. Odds could work in my favor. The more data we create, the more likely it is that our different levels of skill will be revealed. Although we wouldn't predict it, if I was hot that day and the other player was emotionally distracted, maybe I'd win even then.

People typically are concerned with their own small worlds, and not with what may unfold over time or what happens to "most people." Predicting the outcome of a single case is near impossible given all that can go wrong. Will the chairs we are sitting on hold us? They will until they finally break. When will that be? Who knows? Perhaps the glue will finally cease to hold or the floor may be uneven in that particular spot. It's a "wait and see" ... However, with proper maintenance it may never happen.

We may be correct in predicting what might happen to a group, and so we mistakenly think we should be able to predict a single instance. And do we really want to have complete knowledge of the future? It is ironic that freedom and control are important to us and yet we still seek predictability. On the face of it, it would seem that the two are related. If I can predict, I can control. A deeper analysis, however, reveals quite a different picture.

When we want light, we mindlessly flip the light switch. We have no doubt that it will work, so we don't have to think about it. Without doubt, there is no choice. Without choice there is no feeling of control. Complete predictability would leave us with no need to pay attention to anything any longer. And when would we like to "know" everything completely so we could stop paying attention? When we are 15, 30 or 60 years old? At what point do we want to close the future and live in the past?

During the first nine months of our existence, we do nothing. It all just happens. The development of our body and mind, the nutrition needed, the colour of our hair, etc. We just have it happen to us. No worries, no thought, no predictions, it just IS. 

Think about this: If we are aware of the uncertainty of going

forward, we're unlikely to blame ourselves for our failures of prediction when looking back. If we allow for uncertainty, we're likely to stay mindful and in the present, and, personally, that's where I want to be. Right here in the now. After all, the past has passed, the future has yet to be created, and once it is ... it automatically becomes the now. So all we really every have is now. Enjoy it. Don't spend your now thinking about what might become, or what is behind you. We are all on a Journey on the Starship Earth. And we are all the crew.

Every day that goes by we say things in a literal way, but don't really mean them to be interpreted in a literal sense. Yet, when it comes to the Bible and other ancient Wisdom and scriptures that were written as allegory and metaphor, they are still taken to be literal and historical events, locations, people, and names.

For example, "I told you a thousands times." I didn't really tell anyone one thousands times. It's an expression and exaggeration. I was using the statement to infer something of a deeper meaning. That being that I have told you multiple times, is there a need to constantly remind you?

Another example, "It's hotter than an inferno today, and I'm sweating my butt off." First of all, it obviously NOT hotter than an inferno. Even if it were 100 degrees this is far from a blast furnace. Also, you can't sweat your butt off because it's attached to your body. One more ... "moving this sofa is gonna kill me, it's heavy as crap." It's probably NOT going to kill you, unless you have a heart attack and even then it's heart failure that kills you, not the couch. Secondly, have you weighed "crap" lately? I'm really not too sure how heavy crap is and what amount would be needed to determine that it's heavy. Heavy to one person may be light to another, etc.

Anyway, I've spent enough time on the examples. I'm sure you got my point. So now let's return to my earlier statement concerning scripture and the dangerous literal and historical interpretations of mythological and allegorical teachings. These metaphors and celestial astrotheologies have been handed down by one civilization to another since long before biblical times. Even professors at Tel Aviv University in Israel have said the Bible is not meant to be an historical document. Many of the places that are named in Israel were named AFTER the myths had been written.

Just take a moment to think about all of the impossible events spoken about in the bible. Donkeys and snakes talking, making a human being out of a rib, shouting to knock down the walls of a city, parting the ocean with a cane and command, raising the dead, supernatural healings, demons being cast out of people and into pigs, men dying on a cross, being dead for three days, and then raised from being dead, walking through walls, bodily flying up into heaven, walking on water, stilling the winds and the oceans, multiplying loaves of bread, turning water into wine, etc. I could go on for paragraphs.

These things were never meant to have been LITERAL and historical. They are myth and fables with a deeper inner meaning and Truth meant to be discerned through our spiritual journey here in Earth. All of these events happen within us ... where the Kingdom of God/Heaven is located. In our consciousness ... in our Higher-Self ... our Christ Self. The Bible and so many other sacred texts are not meant as history, the are our-story. It is the path of the Eternal Soul as it grows and expands knowledge and awareness of the Divine within each of us. We are ALL the Christ and the Begotten Son. Why did Jesus say "you will do greater things than I" if he didn't mean it and if he was the only Christ?

If Jesus was God, then we are ALL God - collectively. Didn't Paul say that we are the "body of Christ?" Paul never knew of an earthly Jesus, his was a Gnostic and Mystical Christ/Karest dating from stories 10,000 years before any man from Galilee walked the hillside and hung upon a tree. Only 7 of the 13 Epistles credited to this man named Paul were actually written by the same person. The others are anti-Gnostic forgeries inserted by the Roman Church.

Once you grasp the Inner Mysteries of original Christianity (which was Paganism), you will be exposed to the Truth of the amazing and powerful transformational parables and metaphors contained in scripture. Jesus was quoted as saying "you shall know the Truth ... and the Truth shall make you free!" I have never been more free in my life, and have never had a better understanding of the Oneness of God/Source Energy and the oneness of all things in the universe. Question everything, and you will find the answers.

Religious and philosophical teachings have long been divided into two main categories - the esoteric (inner), and the exoteric (outer). Historically, the esoteric teachings have been kept in secret, given only to those who were deemed ready by Teachers who held the “keys to the kingdom of God.” This could take years, even decades in the Mystery Schools of old. Many years before the Truth was to be revealed to those deemed worthy enough to understand and protect it.

Whereas a spiritually mature person recognizes that these “keys” are symbolic of revealed Truths (unveiled/apocalyptic), someone less spiritually mature would picture in his or her mind, actual keys made to fit an actual lock, albeit ... one not of this world. This is the difference between esoteric and exoteric students of religion and philosophy. 

The "esoteric" student understands that religious icons and symbols represent principles and laws of nature, including both the seen and unseen worlds ... Metaphysically, allegorically, metaphorically, and mythically. On the other hand, the "exoteric" student takes the symbols literally - as in Moses actually parted the Red Sea; Jesus, the man, actually sits at the right hand of the Father, etc.

While helpful to an undeveloped, uneducated, or non-inquisitive mind, such exoteric literal interpretations are surface stories used to conceal or veil the more sophisticated and abstract principles they were designed to portray in their parable, myth, allegory, and metaphors ... the deeper revelatory Truths.

But, in this Internet age of rapidly shared content, when all knowledge is freely available to nearly everyone, the time has come to speak more openly of the deeper Truths of this Ancient Wisdom, thus preventing the possibility ... through misunderstanding, that the ideas themselves become merely symbols, hiding the very Truths of which they have always stood for.

Add to this the need to integrate the astounding growth in scientific knowledge into the body of thought called “The Ancient Mysteries.” Scientists and intuitive thinkers of all disciplines have brought new meaning to the old maxim, “Man, know thyself.”

Neuroscience and Cognitive Science, along with the science of Linguistics and also quantum physics, have revealed much about how the human organism works, especially the brain. And while this new knowledge (doubling itself nearly every few years) has enabled us to understand the concept of consciousness more than ever before, the sciences have yet to acknowledge the existence of the Universal Creative Mind of what is called God/Source. And I stress ... yet.

Mystics and sages throughout the millennia have understood more about the nature of mind than present-day scientists, but they have not, for the most part, been able to articulate their knowledge using the limitations of today’s language.

Combined with science’s inbred prejudice against mysticism in general, which is the gap between science and religion that widens everyday, is bringing us closer and closer to an evolutionary catastrophe - the materialist view that human beings are machines whose software developed on its own through random, selective processes and not downloaded from a superior intelligence.

As long as scientists believe that consciousness is a product of the brain and not the other way around, they will continue to seek ways to enhance this flawed mechanism by external means. Mystics, on the other hand, want to develop what is already there. The universal unconsciousness is the Matrix that is the glue of the universe. Tying everything together as One.

The Ancient Mysteries have always taught that the human organism is a vehicle for consciousness, and that the notion of a separate self is nothing more than an illusion. They did not preach against individuality, as is commonly believed today, but rather understood that it is through individual choice that spiritual progress can be made.

Every time we make one choice over another, whether based upon logic or intuition, we rewire our brain in a way that supports further choices along the same lines. In this way, humanity evolves. If through technology, that fundamental process is preempted and people begin to rely on artificial, implanted devices to enhance awareness, spiritual consciousness will devolve into greater and greater materialism, the belief that the physical world and its senses ... are all there is to the human experience.

The Ancient Mystery Teachings were given to the world as tools with which humanity can realize its own potential. These tools lie within the individual heart and mind. But, while scientists tend to lean towards the material understanding of life, spiritually minded people tend to lean toward the opposite pole, regarding science with as much suspicion, as scientists regard mysticism.

Science, by the very nature of the word ... is "proof knowledge." These bilateral grievous suspicions are a dangerous error. It is only by marrying these two paths ... in an enlightened awareness ... that humanity can make the next leap in evolution and involution, bringing the best of the rational mind and the intuition together into a collaborative whole (holy).

The greatest of the mystics from the dawn of human history up to our present day have achieved this marriage of the inner and the outer within themselves. Hence, the mantra "as above, so below." Such enlightened people have brought humanity its greatest discoveries in science, philosophy, art, and social justice.

It was the Egyptian principle of the One God (monotheism), brought forth and articulated by Moses (and/as Akhenaten), that enabled science to envision a world governed by universal immutable law and thus open the door to unprecedented technological advancement.

It was Paracelsus who intuitively unlocked the secrets of pharmacology, extending the lifespan of human beings by decades. And it was Pythagoras who, through his Wisdom and depth of vision, gave us the profound understanding of numbers and geometry that enabled us to achieve countless advances. In fact, Math has proven to be the one constant Truth.

These people were mystics who, along with countless others, acted as the mediators between heaven and earth, providing humanity with priceless knowledge of the cosmos and the meaning of human life. The discoveries of the ancient teachings of Thoth, Hermes, Enoch, and a myriad of Avatars, Hierophants, and Sages, have brought us out of the Dark Ages ... and into the Age of Aquarius. A new era of information, based on profound ancient knowledge (Gnosis). Question everything ... it is the time of reason my friends.

It is no coincidence that the Biblical author(S) chose the name “Mary” to be the mother of "God." There is a subtle connection between matter, mater, and Mary that unveils much more about consciousness and the reality than just a literal interpretation of the Bible could ever reveal (or science for that matter).

The Etymology Dictionary tells us that “mater” means “origin,” “source,” or “mother” from Latin. When you graduate from a school, it is called your "alma mater" ... meaning "nurturing Mother." In Genesis, Eve is called the “mother of all living.” In Mary the concept is taken further in that she becomes the mother of everything, because in every “thing” (ALL matter that is) there resides within, the divine spark capable of evolving to become more.

Mary equates to matter, the Divine mother who incubates and births the potential of that Divine spark within us - the Christ. This divine spark is ... consciousness. This is the infinite potential aspect of what is commonly referred to as GodSource. This infinite potential aspect of God is incubated and evolved in matter. Matter, the Divine Mother, births advanced consciousness. That advanced consciousness is the Son ... The offspring ... That which is created. And the Son ... is And must also be God. And you are a sondaughter of God/Source.

A more shallow exploration of the meaning of the name Mary reveals it to also mean “bitterness.” This is also appropriate, because as consciousness incarnates through matter it is a sort of bittersweet experience, comprised of both joy and pain, life and death, love and negativity. This is the bittersweet experience of our lives. The ancient Greeks called it "Soma/Sema" ... meaning the body is a tomb.

So why exactly was Jesus born of the Virgin Mary? All matter is virgin potential. The Son, advanced Christ/consciousness, is not born THROUGH procreation like a physical child. Consciousness just IS. No insemination is required. The Birth of consciousness is as automatic and involuntary as change. Always it just is. And so are you ... spiritually eternal energy, and consciousness.

You were born of the Virgin Mary. You may be a young soul not quite as advanced as the Son yet, but you are well on your way. Your virgin birth is eternal ... and unstoppable. The higher worlds are still filled with matter. Matter is eternal, just as the Virgin Mary is claimed by some to be a perpetual virgin.

The Divine Masculine (God), and the Divine Feminine (Goddess) are what bring forth creation ... and all that follows has an essence of the parenthood within them. You have a spark of God/Source within you, as does everyone else. We are ALL of the same Source, and the same essence as that Source.

The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse

In the final book of the New Testament Bible, the Book of Revelation; we find perhaps the least understood and the most confusing and fought over book in the entire Bible. It is called the Apocalypse, which does not mean the end of the world as many believe. The Greek word Apocalypse means an unveiling of that which is hidden (A Revelation). It is a book credited to a writer named John, more than likely NOT the John of the other John in the Gospels of the Bible, and perhaps - this book may have even been written by a female author.

It is an esoteric book of high symbolism and deep allegory. It is NOT a prophecy of a future literal history as is believed by so many. It is not prophecy of a literal second coming of Jesus, a rapture, and 7 years of tribulation. This is metaphor and imagery. Signs and symbols of transformation within each of us. There is within the black and white text of scripture, deep spiritual ancient Wisdom being revealed. Today, we will talk about the Four Horses and their symbolism.

The WHITE HORSE (Spirit) represents your spiritual nature. Unfortunately, the Rider trying to break him is religion. For the most part, the White Horse has wandered off of the path that leads to light, and gallops along carrying you deeper and deeper into the nightmare that is organized religion.

The RED HORSE (Emotion) is your emotional nature. The Red Horse should be following BEHIND … so that the BLACK HORSE - representing your intellectual nature - can make decisions based on right or wrong, and NOT on emotions. But generally, what happens is that the Red Horse rears up and charges, and your emotions take over, and get in the way of your ability to reason.

The BLACK HORSE (Intellect) is your intellectual nature. The Black Horse is strong and can bring you much that is favourable, but generally it is overwhelmed by the strength of the Red Horse of emotions. The Black Horse also is easily misled, and we see this in the operations of government, politics, and organized religion. We try to base intelligence on what comes from politicians, and pastors, and our intellect crashes under the hoofs of the Red Horse, and ultimately … we are the ones who lose.

The PALE HORSE (Physical) is our physical nature. The Pale Horse is the favorite of religion, because they look to control the physical. They take control of your mind through placing a belief system within you from an early age, and later further control your finances, by controlling your physical nature.

Modern day religions promise great prosperity. They take, you give, they take, you give, and eventually … the Pale Horse is caused to become lame. So you are promised mansions in heaven, or to be saved from a lurking Devil seeking to devour you, or to be healed in some miracle service, or saved from the eternal fires of hell, etc. Fear and guilt based control.

The Horses are symbolic. They are not real horses - they are the four aspects of human nature and we ride them every day. They are the four aspects of your nature which operate through your mind. The control center and our personality. The human personality operating through a closed and wired system in each human being and actually controls all of our actions, including our desires, our loves, our hates, etc.

The Bible, as well as all Ancient Wisdom, scripture, hieroglyphs, scrolls, mouth to ear myths and fables, all hide within them much deeper teaching for those who have eyes to see, and those who have ears to hear. Among the ancients, there were the Outer Mysteries, reserved for those who desired a simple go-to-church on Sunday morning kind of following, and then there were the Inner Mysteries. The deeper Truths reserved for those initiates willing to commit years of study in the Ancient Mystery Schools. The Outer Mysteries were the “milk” that Paul spoke of. The Inner Mysteries were the “meat” that Paul spoke of.

When the Inner meets the Outer, the transmutation or metamorphosis is complete and there is no turning back to the old ways. Divine meets man … and becomes the Christ. The Divine Spark of God/Source within all things of the universe.

What Exactly Is Nothingness Anyway?

God/Source Energy creates from Nothing because Nothingness, "ayin" in Hebrew, actually means absolute, infinite possibility. No limitations. No restrictions. None at all. Boundless ... and you and I are co-creators of this infinite potential.

When you don’t need to be any particular something, you’re free to be anything. Kabbalah calls this infinite potential "nothingness" – not because there’s nothing there, but because there are absolutely no limitations that define or restrict this infinite possibility in any way. It is the place where all potential begins. 

Remember as we talk on this subject, think of the number Zero. It is a whole entire number ... it is something ... not nothing as is assumed. Just like Infinity is also a number. In fact, most everything in the digital world operates on zero's and one's. Zero, does not mean nothing. It stores the potentiality of numbers just like all the rest. 

You’re Already Creating Something from Nothing

As a human beings created in the image of the All There Is, you are also empowered to create something from nothing. And you do, all the time. Thoughts, are things (thinks) and will manifest into physical reality every single time. Thoughts are energy and cannot be destroyed. 

Unfortunately, most of the time what we create from nothing are the stories about what we can’t do, aren’t capable of, will never have – together with all the reasons why. This is ego blocking our natural spirit-led default program of abundance and endless potentiality. 

These stories are continuously being recreated from nothing in each of our lives. But unlike Source Energy, who creates consciously, we create this reality unconsciously. It’s a sort of default programming. Yes, I understand that you have reasons for what you believe, but those reasons, while they may help to explain your past, do not have the power to limit your future. Unless you think they do, and act accordingly.

Most of us don’t wake up in the morning in awe of our own potential, in touch with our Divine purpose, filled with the joy of life, ready to create. More often we wake up conscious of our limitations, our disappointments, our frustrations, our unfulfilled needs, and the burdensome problems we need to solve. No wonder so many of us are worn out before we even get out of bed.

Change your perception and the way you think, and you will change your reality. When everyone understands the power of this ancient Truth, the world will become a better place. We will be able to create love, compassion, understanding, peace, and tranquility for all creatures. Mind the gate of your mind ... you are the Watchman, you are the Observer, and you ... are the Creator.
