The entire story of the Wizard of Oz is an allegorical tale of the soul’s path to illumination – the Yellow Brick Road. In Buddhism (and an important part of Theosophical teachings) the same concept is referred to as the “Golden Path”. Hence, the Yellow Brick Road. 

The story starts with Dorothy Gale living in Kansas, which symbolizes the material world, the physical plane where each one of us starts our spiritual journey. Dorothy feels an urge to “go over the rainbow," to reach the ethereal realm and follow the path to illumination. She has basically passed the low point by demonstrating the urge to seek a higher Truth.

Dorothy is then brought to Oz by a giant twister spiraling upward, representing the cycles of karma, the cycle of errors and lessons learned. It also represents the ancient belief in reincarnation, the round of physical births and deaths of a soul until it is fit to become Divine. It is also interesting to note that the Yellow Brick Road of Oz begins as an outwardly expanding spiral. In occult symbolism, this spiral represents the evolving self, the soul ascending from matter into the spirit world.

Before undertaking her journey, Dorothy is given the “silver shoes”, which represent the “silver cord” of Mystery Schools (Dorothy was wearing ruby slippers in the movie due to a last minute change by the director, who thought that the color ruby looked better against the Yellow Brick Road). In mystical schools, the silver cord is considered to be the link between our material and spiritual selves. The silver cord connects the spirit of man to the body. Once the Silver Cord is broken, we have left the physical world. 

The sole purpose of the silver cord, or life thread, is to provide the subtle and physical bodies with vital energy. Think of it as a sort of umbilical cord. Just like a baby has an umbilical cord that receives and transfers physical nutrients from the mother, the silver cord serves as a sort of energetic umbilical cord to receive and transfer Prana/Qi/Pneuma/Spirit. Prana is a Sanskrit term meaning “Life," or Life-force. Without Prana, or spirit, the physical body could not operate as it does. This is why once the silver cord is severed, the physical body has no choice but to die.
Remember your Creator before the silver cord is snapped ..."
~Ecclesiastes 12:6

During Dorothy's journey along the Yellow Brick Road, she encounters Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman and the Cowardly Lion who are respectively searching for a brain, a heart, and courage. Those odd characters embody the qualities needed by the the Inner Mysteries initiates in order to complete their quest for illumination.

After surmounting many obstacles, the party finally reaches the Emerald City in order to meet The Great Wizard. Surrounded by artifices and special effects, Remember, before meeting the Wizard, they receive makeovers, perfecting them all as close as possible to the Divine consciousness necessary to stand before the Wizard of Oz — symbolically representing God at this point. The Wizard comes across as cruel, rude and unwise. The Wizard is in fact a stand-in for the Old Testament personal God of the Christians and the Jews, the power figure used by religion to keep the masses in spiritual darkness: Jehovah or Yahweh. It is later discovered that the Wizard is a humbug, a charlatan, who scares people into worshipping his Wizard. He surely could not help the characters complete their quest. If you read literature of Mystery schools, this point of view towards Christianity is constantly expressed.

After all is said and done, the brains, the heart and the courage needed to complete Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion’s quests were found within each one of them. As above, so below. All that is needed lies within. Mystery Schools have always taught their students that one must rely on oneself to obtain salvation (Knowledge of the Divine Spark within). Throughout the story Dorothy’s dog Toto represents her “inner voice”; her intuition … The inner Christ. Remember, the Kingdom of God/Heaven is "within you."

The fake Wizard invites Dorothy into his balloon to go back to Kansas, her final destination. She however follows Toto (her intuition) and gets out of the balloon, which represents the empty promises of many organized religions. This leads to her ultimate revelation and, with the help of the Good Witch of the North (her Divine guide), she finally understands: everything she ever wanted could be found “in her own backyard”.

In order to obtain illumination, Dorothy had to vanquish the wicked witches of the East and the West – who were forming an evil horizontal axis: the material world. She was wise in listening to the advice of the good witches of the North and South – the vertical axis: the spiritual dimension. God meets man - as above, so below. 

Once she is back home, Dorothy awakens from her sleep in her bed, surrounded by her family. She tries to tell the unenlightened people what she experienced, and they all laugh. Anyone who’s ever tried to tell someone something they weren’t ready for will understand this feeling.

At the end of the story, Dorothy upon waking up in Kansas, has successfully combined her physical and spiritual Life. She is now comfortable being herself again and, despite her family not really believing the details of her quest, she can finally say “There is no place like home”.

Several years ago, I actually got to witness an amazing event. My wife and I drove to Juno Beach, Florida to visit her brother and his family at their beach house. We lived in Orlando at the time so it was only a 2 1/2 hour drive down, and we made it a nice long weekend getaway. 

Now, anyone who knows me, knows that I love the atmosphere of the ocean, I love the beach, but oddly enough ... I don't like actually going to the beach, sitting in the sand, swimming in the ocean, and laying in the sun. I'm more like the guy sitting in the air conditioned ocean front tiki bar having a drink and a burger and watching from a distance. 

But on this particular day, they all talked me into going beachfront for a little bit. So there I sat, under the umbrella, in the blazing hot sun just counting the minutes until I could bail out of the expedition and head back to air conditioned comfort. Then something caught my ear. There were very few people at the beach since this is the private section of Juno Beach and it's for residents only ... so the sounds stood out. 

What caught my ear, was the penetrating laughter of a young man who was sitting right on the sand where the waves would come crashing in ... splashing him. Each time the wave came in, he screamed with pleasure and delight. It was obvious just by observation, that he was a young man with disabilities. His parents were there with their other kids and keeping a close watch on him to be sure he was safe ... and safe he was. Safe in the arms of ecstasy. Bam ... another wave and another ear piercing scream of joy and immeasurable happiness. He would throw his hands up in the air and it nearly brought tears to my eyes. 

My emotions ran wild, because at that moment I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I personally had never experienced such a level of sheer bliss and excitement as this child splashing in the waves. He was at maximum thrill level. In those few moments, he was experiencing more incredible joy that I had ever imagined was possible. I realized that day, that it can actually happen. On that day, HE was MY teacher. And what a lesson I had learned. 

This was a wake up call for all of us who consider ourselves "normal." All I can hope for is that one day, I can experience his normal ... even if just for a few moments. It was exhilarating and I hope that all of us can witness it within ourselves at some time in our Life here. Total, absolute, bliss ... unbridled joy and happiness. God bless him.

The fact is, that the Language of the Universe is not English or any other spoken language on the planet. I say this with some disappointment, because it would seem our lives would be easier if we had direct verbal contact with the Divine Source. However, as it stands, the Language of the Universe is one of vibration, feeling, emotion, and symbolism. This is how God/Source talks to you and you can learn how to receive and decipher these communications from the Universe with a bit of self-study and observation. There is a Matrix of unconscious transmitters and receivers going on 24/7 ... throughout the entire universe. 

To start with, you have to come to the realization that the Universe is sending you (and everyone else) messages 24/7 whether you are awake or asleep. The incoming communication never stops. Creator Energy is guiding you at all times - guiding you with information that comes through your physical body, through your emotions, through imagery in the Mind, through your dreams, through your sixth sense (intuition), and any other way that you can be creative about receiving it. When we get “an idea” … it isn’t really ours, or new, it’s that we are the receivers of that particular message and we have been assigned to act upon it.

This means that Source Energy / God, can communicate with you through absolutely any means on Earth that your Mind can conceive of obtaining these means. Because vibration (One of the Universal Immutable Laws) is one of the tools the Universe uses to communicate, It can alter various vibrations in any way It deems necessary to catch your attention. This means that a song on the radio, an animal encounter,  a conversation in a store or at a coffee shop, a book or even a third-party conversation you overhear can be a dispatch from Divine Source. The Greek word for “messenger” is “Angelos” which we translate in English to "Angel." So, Angels, are anything that is delivering to you a specific message meant for you. The messages never stop - so pay attention to what catches your senses, and realize this is The Divine's way of whispering in your ear … it’s that “still small voice” that never yells to get your attention as your ego does.

The Universe delivers its messages in a myriad of ways, and surely you have had some sort of experience - a sign, an omen, a coincidence, or synchronicities occurring in your Life. Pay close attention to time, and numbers as well for this synchronicity. Did you realize that this is one of the ways in which Source communicates with you? Were you able to receive, interpret, and understand the message? Messages are usually symbolic in nature. Understanding this symbolic messaging is an entire level of the Ancient Mystery Schools Teachings learned among the initiates through years of preparation and understanding.

The grades or levels of the teachings among the initiates of the Ancient Mystery Schools were designed in order to help create a healthy foundation and show how to live in a balanced, harmonious, reverent and abundant way … regardless if there is a storm or sunshine in your Life. Each level of the Mystery School teachings offered a different perspective or way in which to view everyday occurrences and events. These initiates and graduates took the Inner Mystery teachings very seriously. It was life-changing ... and took many years to complete. 

Everyone among the ancient societies had to attend the first level, and this first level was called the Literal Level. It was in this presentation that people learned about the nature of reality here on Earth - about vibration, energy, chakra’s, auric fields, plant life, the animal kingdom, and elemental Life. Here they learned that everything on the planet has a vibration, and how they interact as one large reflection of The Whole. All is one, and one is All … The All.

The second level was all about understanding symbolism, because these wise ancient people knew that the Absolute/Source/God was speaking to them in a metaphorical and allegorical way at all times. Seven years of symbolic teaching. Imagine how this would change your Life ... to instantly know and understand the symbolic meaning of every communication emanating from Source.

Learning symbolism will change you Life from the inside out. You will come to the realization that God / Spirit / All That Is / Source is communicating with you, and the magic of Life as a Spiritual Being will begin to understand The Language of the Universe. We are NOT a body, we HAVE a body. We are Eternal Spirit having a physical experience while we are here in this incarnation.

Because we as a society have not been taught Ancient Wisdom and Symbolism from birth, one of the easiest way for us now to learn the Language of the Universe is through dream interpretation, meditation, and contemplative prayer. The ancient prayer method was all about feeling, emotion, and creating a vibration that the universe understands. This wasn't a display of merely spoken words, but feeling what one wished to manifest by actually feeling as if it had already taken place. 

Our Mind already accepts that we dream in a symbolic manner, so it is easy to slip into the translation of waking time symbolic events and signs, by first becoming aware of dream symbols and their meanings. The Mind knows no difference between what is “real” and what is a “dream.” The experience is the same to our Mind. After all, our entire Life is experienced inside our heads. This is where all of our sensory systems operate. Therefore, we can never personally experience anything outside of the inside of our Mind and brain.

Once you acquire a few skills in switching from Literal to Symbolic points of view (reflecting the teachings of level one and level two of the Ancient Mystery School), then you will be well on your way to seeing the deeper meaning behind everything in Life. Understanding how Source/God/Consciousness is touching your Life everyday is an eye-opening and humbling experience. “Knowing Your Symbols” is part of the Mystery School Teachings that you can begin to embrace today and that change your life forever. The esoteric can be found above and beneath the layers of literal esoteric writings. 

In the days of old, there were two presentations of spiritual Truths. One was for the masses presented as drama or passion play … the exoteric literal-historical stories. These were the “Outer Mysteries.” For those who showed promise, and realized there was more to the fables and myths than just stories, they set out as initiates into the Inner Mysteries. This was where they found the hidden Truths buried beneath and beyond the stories, parables, metaphors, and allegories.

This is the buried treasure. The pearl in the oyster. The diamond in the coal. The underlying foundation of all world religions was founded on the principle that the Spark of the Almighty known for more than 10,000 years is the Christ. The Karest. The Sacred Fire that is planted within each and every human being that must be found, accepted, and resurrected IN THIS life … not in the afterlife. This was the message credited to Jesus of the New Testament. “The Kingdom of God/Heaven is within you.”

Everything in the universe has the same plan. It is inescapable. Everything has a sunrise (birth/genesis), high noon (zenith/peak), sunset (beyond peak/downturn), and nightfall (death/darkness). Every cell, every organism, every creature, every rock ... there's no escaping it. 

In the same way, we have our seasons. Spring - new outlook, Summer - brighter days, Fall - start of the decline, and Winter - the end of the cycle, the cold and lifeless crops. In another view, in the spring the flowers begin to bloom, then comes the harvest and the warm days of summer, then things begin to fall into darkness ... cold temperatures, until the trees and plants die and await their resurrection. 

Our emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental Life experiences are exactly the same. Our Life cycle is as the sunrise, noon, sunset, and night. Our trials and tribulations are also as the seasons. Sometimes a bright and warm outlook or event, and sometimes a dark outlook or event. All is in flux. All is in a state of change. And all is in a cycle. This is important to remember as you deal with daily issues in Life.

We know that after the storm(s), comes a clearing, and then the Sun of God reappears to give Life to all that made it through the tempest(s). When we have a "bad" day, just simply KNOW there is a good day coming. It is immutable Law. It must be this way. The universe maintains balance in all that occurs. Sound waves, light waves, ocean waves, even roller coasters go up, and they go down. Ebb and flow, waves and particles. There is no straight line. However, you can master living your Life experience by being good when things are good, and by being good when things are not so good.

You can straighten the lines, curves, and waves; through your perception and your attitude. Instead of blind faith, live in the knowingness of the immutable Laws of the universe that are eternal. Cause and effect, vibration, frequency, polarity ... these Laws balance the scales of justice across the celestial kingdoms. 

We have the power of all the universe within us to perceive things as we wish, to create things as we wish, to adhere to the Laws, or to transgress them. We are literally here for a season in human terms. And we choose to make the best or the worst of things simply by how we think, and how we perceive reality. 

You know that feeling you have after a rough winter of snow, ice, lost productivity, and freezing temperatures ... and then spring begins to arrive? Then soon ... you're at the beach playing with family and friends enjoying the splendour of of it all, and the farthest thing from your Mind is the soon to be approaching cycle of Fall and Winter. STAY in THAT state of Mind. When winter days bring rain  in our spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical lives ... keep that summer spirit alive.

Don't spend the chill time going UP the roller coaster, worrying about the thrill time coming DOWN the roller coaster. Enjoy them both ... knowing that in ALL things there are UP's and DOWN's. You job is to balance the flux. Just like balancing a pencil on your finger. Both sides must be equal to obtain proper balance. Right in the middle is where you must learn to stay. Balance your scales ... it can never be greater than the other in both directions. For as much "bad" as there may seem to be ... there is equally as much "good." Maintain a good attitude, and you will achieve harmony in your life and in others.

The great Neville Goddard once said "our thoughts and emotions do not recede into the past, but rather they advance into the future to confront us there as our world. Our thoughts, or lack of them amongst everyone else, cause our worlds." Discovering that this process is underway awakens us to the prospect of the Divine, and when the process works, we have found God to be our own wonderful human imaginations. Our imaginations, because God is imagination, and he has become us. We, are made in the "image of God." 

The world naturally mirrors our own thoughts and emotions whether they be good, un-good, or indifferent. We can control the thoughts and emotions to be reflected. Neville used various mental devices to get the Mind to imagine a scene so real and complete and full of emotion that it would become manifest in the future. If we can get this down, then collectively, the world will reflect it.

From the perspective of the ancient Essenes, every human on the earth is an initiate in the Mystery School that we call Life. Whether they are conscious of it or not, every human will experience in the presence of others, mirrors of themselves in that moment. If we have the Wisdom to recognize those mirrors, we may accelerate the evolution of emotion and understanding. We come to realize that it is emotion that proves the power and, when coupled with logic, true magic and miracles will happen. 

The Lost Gospel of Thomas saying 106 tells us: 

"When you make the two one, you will become the sons of man, and when you say, 'Mountain, move away,' it will move away." And verse 48 tells us: "If two make peace with each other in this one house, they shall say to the mountain, 'Be moved,' and it shall be moved."

As Author and Geologist Gregg Braden has presented, the two are the thoughts and the emotions of our imagination. When they become one in our heart it is as if our prayer has already been answered. Braden also talks about John 16: 34 as translated from the ancient Aramaic which escaped the "Christian" editing for the Bible. In the original it states, "All things that you ask straightly, directly from inside my name (nature, imagination), you will be given. So far you have not done this (we've been asking incorrectly). Ask without hidden motive and be surrounded by your answer. Be enveloped in what you desire, that your gladness may be full."

Neville said we must make our future dream our present fact by assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled - to come FROM the place where it is already happened. We must feel the feeling as if it has already manifested ... already taken place. This is the language of the universe ... the Field of consciousness that understands in feeling and in magnetic resonance more so than with spoken words. Make your thoughts and emotional feelings one in your heart. See and feel it as if it were already done. "Ask and you shall receive." But not just spoken repetitive prayer, but FEEL it ... feel the feeling of that which you desire. The feeling IS the prayer. 

Feeling-based prayer is a form of prayer that transcends any single religion or doctrine, and goes directly to the natural ability within each of us to participate in the events of Life, healing, and peace directly, responsibly and effectively. To implement this mode of prayer, we are invited to simply focus the feeling in our hearts as if our prayers are already answered. 

Further ancient Essene studies by Mr. Braden have shown that he lost mode of prayer is a form of prayer that has no words, no outward expression, and is based simply in feeling. Specifically, this mode of prayer invites us to feel the appreciation and gratitude in our heart, as if our prayers have already been answered, even if the events in the world appear to show us otherwise. Science and Physics agree that our world and our bodies mirror what we think and feel. We must be very clear that our prayers originate from our hearts, rather than in our heads. The logic of our brain works in polarity left brain/right brain, light/dark, good/bad, right/wrong, etc. Praying for something creates a strong feeling of what should or should not be. The physics of our world require that when something is created with a charge in one polarity, the opposite must be created as well, to balance that charge. 

Our hearts, on the other hand, have no polarity. In the indigenous traditions, there is even a word that describes the non-polar objectiveness of the heart, the heart that sees what is, rather than judges what should be. The word is Shante Ishta (the single eye of the heart). When we choose peace or healing from our heart, there is no polarity created to balance our choice, as there is no left and right heart. From our heart, the FEELING ... IS the prayer. Studies have shown that this quality of gratitude and appreciation for the peace that already exists, creates a field effect in the presence of peace, all that can happen is peace. 

Studies into the effects of this type of prayer offer new credibility to ancient propositions suggesting that we may actually "do something" about the negative events in the world, both present and future. These studies add to a growing body of evidence suggesting that focused and feeling prayers and heart-felt emotions, especially those offered on a large scale, have a predictable and measurable effect on the quality of Life during the time of the prayer. This has been measured using numerous experiments, even during the 911 tragedy. 

Mother Theresa was once asked to attend an "Anti-War Rally." She declined attending, adding that when there was a Peace Rally, she would attend. She understood that by rallying against war, it would only manifest MORE war. An even deeper view would suggest that by even mentioning that the world needed peace, would be an admission that there was in fact NO peace in the world. A tricky conundrum. Choosing our words, our feelings, and our emotions precisely and carefully we can co-create new and better realities for ourselves and for others. By matching the feeling (prayer) of our inner world with like conditions in our outer world, we are able to manifest our desires. 

Once we allow the qualities of peace in our Mind, and fuel our prayer through feelings of peace in our body, we state that the outcome has already happened. Set your intent, have a pure motive, and FEEL it as if it has already taken place. This is the power of conscious manifestation.

How many times do we set a clear intention for what we seek ... an intention that is pure of heart? Here, is where the blessing awaits. Our motive, should be an unselfish desire for the best possible outcome for all, without having a selfish agenda that only suits our ego. In other words, going after a goal in a way that forces us to conform to a pattern of action that we don't actually want to do, but do it for the end result of a self centered desire. An ulterior motive that goes against our Divine nature, and manifests as an ego based process, rather than a process that is pure of heart. 

Example: I invite a friend to dinner, knowing that he owns a box truck and I'm going to be moving soon. It wasn't my intention to have him for dinner as an offer of friendship, but rather to seek an end result of borrowing his truck for my upcoming move. The intent, was not pure of heart, and not beneficial for all, but rather a selfish motivation to use him for my own personal needs. Another example would be staying late at work, going above and beyond what is expected of me in an effort to try and get a raise and praise ... even though I don't really have the desire to work late or go the extra mile. My motivation is the raise ... money and recognition ... rather than performing well because I really love my job and want to help everyone around me. 

Our intention is the key to all manifestation. Examine your motives. Clarify your intent. Choose a beneficial path suitable for ALL. Socrates offered a triple-filter test to one of his students. The student wanted to tell home something. But first, Socrates offered him the test before speaking. There were three questions: "Is what you're about to tell me, True?" Is what you're about to tell me, good? "Is what you're about to tell me, useful? If the answer to any of these is NO, then don't say it. We can take this lesson one step further ... and apply it to our thoughts, feelings, and actions. When we set our intentions with the right motive, then and only then, will we see Divine manifestation in full bloom, rather than egocentric base-nature scattered ramblings. 

"Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves."
~Philippians 2:3 ESV 

Deeds are prompted by thoughts that have vitality colour, that evoke feeling. Only then do they have enough force to result in action. Scattered incoherent thoughts that drift from one thing to the other are sterile and arouse no feeling, and therefore no proper action. Feelings are behind every action. A right feeling is necessary to produce a right action. Feelings can create either positive energy, or actually exhaust it. By analyzing this, mankind develops will. Through the development of will, superior feelings will build a storehouse of energy and harmony, while inferior feelings lead to weakness and imbalance. Will is the key to manifestation of this great source of energy. Man is constantly cooperating with superior forces, or inferior forces. He cannot be neutral. The Bible says: "you are either for me, or against me." There is no neutral. 

"Even a child is known by his deeds, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right."
~Proverbs 20:11

Always examine your motive. Set the proper intention. Use your will to connect with the Divine within you and listen for direction from that still small voice. Good deeds are morality based. They can benefit you, society, the community, and humanity as a whole. Make a choice that is beneficial and suitable for ALL. Your motive, will determine the outcome well beyond your own personal egocentric benefit.

This chapter is dedicated to my friend and Mentor, Curtis Paul. Curtis transitioned home on July 23rd, 2019 at only 56 years of age. But his Wisdom, was well beyond his years. 

How many times have you tossed a coin into a Wishing Well or a fountain and cast your wishes to the unseen powers? We all have desires we wish to come true. We even make a wish when blowing our the candles on our Birthday Cake. But what is it that we wish for? It's usually something of great importance. Something that bypasses our ego and comes from the Spirit/heart. Love, health, happiness, peace ... All part of the hearts desire, and the desire of the Divine within.

Rarely is someone going to wish for a new lawn mower, custom paint for the Harley, rims for the car, or even a big-screen TV for the family room. It is always something of great personal VALUE that goes beyond material things. Notice how we toss in a coin (something of value) in exchange for something else of value? We are willing to trade MONEY, for SPIRIT-FILLED wishes. My friend Curtis Paul added while we were discussing this ... never do we use a slug, or counterfeit coin ... It MUST be real, in order to exchange it for something REAL.

Note also that once we make the wish, and toss the coin, we are finished. "IT IS FINISHED." We turn it over to the unseen powers of the Universe, and we detach ... Releasing it forever out of our hands. We simply KNOW that there is a force within and without ALL things that will bring forth thoughts, words, and deeds. We do not return to the Well to check on progress or wish again, we just detach and let be what will be. We don't worry about it, obsess about it, or become anxious about it. How awesome it would be if we were to do this with EVERYTHING. 

We are co-creators of this Universe. Every thought, word, and action originates in Mind. Yours, mine, and everyone else's. Before ANYTHING can manifest, or become material/matter, it first begins with thought energy. Then, spoken word ... Desire and affirmation, THEN, when enough thought and word energy comes together it will congeal. It will begin to form matter as we know it. Matter is energy manifest in form. "In the beginning, the Earth (matter) was formless (unseen-Spirit) and void (unlimited potentiality)." All that ever was, and ever will be is already here and NOW. The time is always NOW. Past, present, and future exist in the here and NOW. Once you understand this principle, you can use the power of the unseen for great things.

"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."
~Ecclesiastes 1:9

Now back to the Wishing Well for a moment. Notice how we don't go back(wards) to the fountain and "take-back" our coin, or our wish? Except for Mouth (Goonies) ... We leave it there and let it bring forth what it may. Notice also how INTENSE we were at the time of the wish? We close our eyes, we concentrate, we center, we come to NOW, we take our time ... Really affirm what it is that is our hearts desire ... And then ... When the time is right - we toss it to the waters of Life and walk away in knowingness that there really is nothing else to do. We have turned it over to that which brings breath, Life, and consciousness to all the living. 

Learn from this inherent system of desire. Do not say "I want" For this will only bring forth more WANT. Say: "I choose to manifest _." Use the great "I AM" whenever possible. Keep your tense in the present. Keep your focus in the here and now. FEEL the feeling as if it has already happened. Keep your heart in charge ... Bypassing the ego and carnal mind. The Power within you KNOWS what is best for you and for all living things. Trust it. Listen to hear that still small voice that will guide you through all of your experiences. Remain thankful and grateful for ALL things ... Good and un-good. For even in The darkness, light and Love will finds its way. Be mindful and thoughtful as you create. Tend your garden of Mind as a Gardener would tend the fields. 

In John 20, Mary believes Jesus to be a Gardener. She then recognized him and called him "Teacher." Plant the seed now as a Gardener would, and KNOW there will be a harvest ... When nature is ready. There is no need go into the field and dig it up to see if it is growing. Just KNOW that it is. Be sure the seeds you plant will be beneficial to all, and harm no-one. 

In closing, may you have all that you wish. This is the Law of the Youniverse. Namaste.

I've been thinking a lot today about the messages that Agent Smith, Orpheus, Oracle, Neo, and all the other meaningfully named characters delivered on-screen in "The Matrix." Agent Smith had so many profound things to say about the human race in the film. The first time I saw the film, I was too young and inexperienced to appreciate the vast Wisdom contained in not only the dialogue, but in hidden messages and symbolism throughout the film. There was a lot of reference to ancient Kabbalah, Christianity, Judaism, and Gnosticism. 

But the main message that remained constant, was the concept the most people go about their day as if they were pre-programmed. Call it "A.I." or just plain unconsciousness ... or even still ... asleep upright. It is true that we as humans operate in our waking hours Mind at about 1 to 5% of conscious function, and up to and sometimes more than 95% unconscious/subconscious function. 

This means that for most of us ... we are Zombie-ish. Either consciously near death, almost comatose, or sleep walking. Ancient scriptures dealing with Cain, tells a story of deeper meaning through allegory, and in the end, he was sent off to the "Land of Nod" as punishment. Has a segment of our population "nodded" off to sleep and is pretending to be awake and aware? Remember, in the Matrix, the machines needed our energy to function. 

Physicist Max Planck's quantum theory revolutionized human understanding of atomic and subatomic processes, just as Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity revolutionized the understanding of space and time. Together they constitute the fundamental theories of 20th-century physics. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the "Matrix" of all consciousness. We are all connected through Universal Mind and the web of unconsciousness. He coined the word ... and he did it in 1933. The Matrix is the "Field" of consciousness. 

My suggestion to all of us - including myself - is that we continue working to raise our awareness. Beginning now. There are powers in this world who have been hypnotizing and programming us with their own agenda for decades. If we don't wake up from this program, if we don't unplug ... we won't have the power to survive during the hard times, and thrive during the good times. 

Each of us has our passions and hobbies, and I'm no different than anyone else. As I spend time writing my next book, I spend hours writing articles that can be life-changing on my Truth Blog at genesology.com every day. I love to do the research and the cross-reference, and I share freely what I find with everyone who is interested in reading the posts. I just want to extend an invitation for you to stop by and look around at some of the articles. See if you find anything of interest that may help to raise your conscious awareness a bit. 

People who understand big business, know that their survival and success is dependent on the lower level workers. The same goes for governments, and, the Global Elite. They all need us to complete their plans. And usually the cream of the crop starts from the bottom up. We hold he power for change ... just by sheer numbers alone. Wake up ... wise up. Do your research. 

Don't depend on the pulpit or the TV to deliver you Truth. Truth sometimes needs a shovel. Start digging. There are centuries of manmade garbage on the top layers. Sift through the trash, and find the gold. We are energy ... and have the full power of the universe within us. Imagine what we can accomplish when we all wake from our slumber.

As I look back through the years, I realize one thing that is evidently clear. That one thing is: "I am not the person I was many years ago." Not even close. I know for a fact that I have evolved to a level of greater understanding, compassion, Wisdom, Truth, and appreciation for all things in this vast universe within and without us.

I have come to accept that people who knew me back in the early days of my career will remember me exactly the way was the day I left that industry. Funny how time is like a picture snapped and frozen until we replace that image with something new ... and hopefully improved.

What puzzles me most is that many people we encounter have NOT changed at all over the years. In some cases, they have even regressed. Perhaps they don't know how to move forward and onward to a better and higher level of consciousness ... or perhaps, they are too comfortable in their lower nature ways. After all, its familiar to them. 

Why cause trouble for people? Why be angry, mean, hurtful, and in some cases downright evil? What does it gain them (or anyone else) ... other than to fuel the fire within that darkness where they are stuck. 

Of the worlds 7 billion estimated inhabitants, over 2/3 of them believe in a higher power, a Source of all things ... a God. So I have to ask, if there is a higher power, then the force of love is the only thing that can create and move things forward. Anything else is devolution and destructive, rather than evolution and constructive. 

Given our understanding of this Universal Truth, then I can only arrive at one conclusion. Either there is no God, or billions of people choose evil ways against their fellow man rather than right thinking and goodness. I choose not to accept there is no universal power we call God. So then it must be wrong-choices. 

Every single day I must affirm that which I want to manifest in my Life, and detach from the things I do not want. I am still affected by outside karma and unwise decisions of others ... cause and effect ... but I do not have to add my own ignorance and unwillingness for change to this experience and the Field of Consciousness. 

If you want change, then be the change. When we all re-member, become whole (holy), and become the one consciousness that we truly are ... then we will experience what the ancients referred to as "Peace On Earth (matter)," and the "Kingdom of Heaven (spirit)" ... and when the two become One ... the humanity experiment will be complete and successful. 

Think right, do right, be right ... for all of us and for our children and future generations. There are currently only 3 Kingdoms ... Animal, Plant, and Mineral. It is up to us to establish the Human Kingdom.

We all really only have one "birthday/birthdate," and that's the actual month/day/year of our physical birth (this time around). So with each passing year, what we are really celebrating is the "Anniversary" of our birth. For many people in the past, they had no idea when their date of birth was. Either no records were kept or they were left behind or destroyed in the wars. My grandmother didn't know her birthdate, so we picked one and used that as the anniversary date of her birth. Also, for example ... no one knows the birthdate of Jesus, so the Roman Church picked December 25th for multiple reasons. 

The interesting thing to remember is that time itself ... is based in consciousness. It is very important to understand what time is. In essence, it is nothing other than a mental construct created by the ego Mind to separate out perceptions and events into an order - so that the sensations arising from them can be assimilated and made sense of. As we are beings in the 3rd dimension, we can only ever perceive one thing at a time. It might appear that we can perceive many things in the linear dimension at once, but in reality, the linear Mind can only handle one perception at a time – no matter how ‘bunched up’ these perceptions seem.

Much in the same way ... we believe ourselves to be able to "multitask." Yet, even this is an illusion. We truly can only do one thing at a time, but the Mind switches it's resources back and forth so fast between one thing and the other, that it appears we are doing many things at once. We are not, and nor can we. Also remember that the resources supplied for EACH thing that we are trying to do at the same time, are diminished. Therefore, the more we try and do at once, the less each thing can have attentive and responsive resources. Kind of like the folks that can do the spinning plates trick. The more they try and spin, the more probability for error. Because they are actually only spinning one at a time, and switching around and back and forth the more plates they try and add. Eventually ... "Opah" as the Greeks would say ... the plates come crashing down and break. 

So, now back to the birthday thing. We have only one. The actual day and date of our birth. That's it. Each successive trip around the sun, and the calendar and seasons, we reach the same place where we started. Each year is merely a revolution around the sun. So when the numbers match the month and day, it is the anniversary of our birth ... not our birthday. So by now you're probably thinking this is a matter of semantics and trivial at best ... but it isn't. And here's why. 

From the moment we begin our journey here at birth, the destination is death. There's no avoiding it. Everything has it's sunrise, noonday, and sunset. Originally among the ancient meanings of the Trinity, these were the three phases and levels applied to mankind, and to nature. When you are born, you are zero years old. Remember, zero is a full number and has value just like any other. Zero does not mean "nothing." From this origin, our parents and those whose care we are in, teach us things ... right and wrong ... both by word and by deed. Eventually, we reach a point where it is us that design the map of the path that we will follow. We will have our own thoughts, decisions, beliefs, opinions, and actions. 

Through Quantum Physics and modern science, we have come to the realization and understanding that MATTER is nothing but an ILLUSION. Scientists now recognize that everything in the Universe is made out of energy. Everything. Another one of these proven revelations is that “the Observer creates the reality.” This is a fundamental conclusion of the new physics and acknowledges that the Observer (us/consciousness/Spirit), does in fact create the reality. As Observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own realities ... thoughts are things (energy) and our thoughts create our actions and everything must manifest in form. 

The fact that material substances (matter) appear out of thin air, with scientific evidence pointing to consciousness as that which is creating it, is remarkable. One minute we are holding a physical formed object in our hand, like a coin, and then the next minute we realize that if we were to focus in on the coins material substance with an atomic microscope, we would see that we are actually holding nothing. The spinning vortices that are the energy of everything, actually disappear into a void. What we would normally call  - empty and nothing. But it's within that void, that all things come from. Including the birth and rebirth of us. 

Genesis 1:2 tells us: "the Earth (matter) was without form and void." 

From the VOID ... comes ALL things. The void is the point of origin where boundless and endless potentiality emerges and emanates. This is the NO-THING (un-manifest) from which every thing is created from. 

How powerful and amazing is that? It took modern science and physics thousands of years to come to the reality and conclusion that ancient philosophers, sages, shaman, hierophants, mathematicians, and people with an incredible foundation of ancient spiritual Wisdom ... already knew. 

During the time of your birth, you came out of the void (the Earth/Matter/Mother) and one day you will return from whence you came. Make the most of your time here. Think good thoughts. Do good deeds. Make the dash between the dates of your lifespan mean something good to yourself and others. Your "Birthday" is everyone's birthday. We are all one in the Matrix of Universal Unconsciousness (the Field). We create all things moment by moment ... today, tomorrow, and NOW. Everything that exists has always existed and will continue to exist for eternity. As the Old Testament Bible tells us: "there is nothing new under the sun." All is energy ... and we are energy, and this Life experience is but a blip on the radar of eternity.

Today, war rages on, terror attacks continue, many of which are based upon religious beliefs. Whether it be Islam, Judaism, Christianity, or any number of countless religious and faith systems in global practice, they should not be disrespected. People should be able to peacefully follow their faith, regardless of individual or collective opinion. 

We should've progressed to a point where verbal communication and media should be discussing the origins and the ancient unity of ALL of these faith systems. At one time, all was Pagan. There were Universal Spiritual Truths taught among tribes and civilizations that had a common core foundation. These "religions" (Latin root word meaning bondage) sprang their own streams from a single river source. 

"God" is a title, no a name. All of these religions believe in GOD/Source Energy as Life giving Spirit and the origin of all things ... even though through different languages and geographic regions the name applied to this GOD varies. No Artist would find pleasure in the destruction of his art. The more we kill, maim, and attack our fellow humans and destroy their property, the more we are setting ourselves in backwards motion rather than forward involution and evolution of the human species. 

Violence is not a means to an end. We condemn radical religious adherents for their terrorist military style attacks and tactics, yet our own country which is predominantly Christian, is involved in ongoing war across the globe wreaking havoc, killing, destroying, bombing, all the while having most likely the largest war machine on Earth. These global militaries are to protect their nations and people, not to induce or provoke attack. Bully tactics do not work in elementary school, and they certainly won't work in Military School, or Earth School.

When people come to the Truth that we are all ONE consciousness, sharing the same origin, breathing the same air, drinking the same water, and walking on the same terra-firma (solid Earth), perhaps then ... we may walk the path of love, tolerance, and peace. Until then, we must increase awareness and respect of unity without uniformity. The spoken word is mightier than the sword. 

There are only 26 letters in the English language. Yet, thousands of libraries, millions of books, and billions of articles and publications have come from a collection of only 26 letters.

Religion, language, Philosophy, and geography have separated mankind for far too long. And it has all been under the careful guidance of a Global Elite Network with a hidden agenda that they will continue to push until it is made manifest. 

Wake up my friends. Awaken from your unconscious slumber and and know that the world powers want to keep us in the darkness. They want to keep us busy with busy-ness and no time to think for ourselves. They provide non-stop Media "Programming," sports, happy hour, celebrity obsessions, conflicts within the families, monetary patterns of control, etc. to keep our minds from working. To keep us too busy to notice what they're doing right under our nose. 

We are ONE race, ONE humanity, ONE planet, ONE universe, ONE consciousness ... and ONE God. This is Truth. Accept this reality and get unplugged from the illusory Matrix, and join the real Matrix ... the Field ... higher consciousness. Just remember, your eye's will hurt, because you've never used them.

We all have experiences in Life that are "good" and "bad" but in reality they are actually varying degrees of experience. All are for our own personal benefit. They aid us in learning what is beneficial and what is consequential ... for ourselves and for others. Life is being, and part of that being is growing mentally, emotionally, and spiritually through our experiences. 

That being said, it is important to note that we are NOT our experiences. We are the Observer, the Witness to these experiences. We are spiritual beings with the knowledge granted us through physical experiences In this world of matter/form. We take the knowledge with us when we return from where we came ... Source ... but we do not bring the experiences with us. Much in the same way as we do not bring any personal possessions with us. They are not ours. They were here before we got here and they will be here when we move on. As the Old Testament Bible so profoundly says "There is nothing new under the sun." We are the great re-arrangers. We take what was already here and rearrange it into something else.

"What has been will be again, and what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun."
~Ecclesiastes 1:9 

We should not take possession of any of our experiences. They are not us ... they are merely what we have witnessed or observed. Sometimes, we are involved, other times not. But it matters not ... they are as a TV show that we are watching. The scenes are not real, and we can only take from them the knowledge of what was contained in the presentation. We use our discernment and Higher-Self to be sure we have learned what is necessary, and then we move on. Some people have to repeat the experience if they didn't learn it. Nothing goes away under you fully understand what was contained within the lesson. Think of it this way: School, is about learning the lesson ... and then a taking a test. Life, is like taking a test ... and then learning the lesson. 

So many times we hold on to toxic experiences and memories. For some reason we do not want to let them go. They become familiar. This is the equivalent of dropping poison in your food. And sooner or later, it will kill you. Stress, heart disease, cancer, etc. All are manifestations of holding onto lies and deceptions. Only love and goodness is real. All else are illusory tools used to teach us these Truths. Once the image is seen in the mirror, the real thing is discerned and there is no need for the mirror anymore. It was just a tool. The shadow fades in the light. 

As we hold on to and fester over dark energy thoughts and actions, we find ourselves in dis-ease. All illness comes from within. Even if you "catch a cold," it must first manifest from inside you, and then to the outside of you in physical symptoms. This dis-ease can be a mild illness, or a major life-threatening illness. Just know that ALL illness and disease must begin within. If you are not at-ease, then you are at dis-ease. Lose your peace, lose your health. That's just the way it goes ... we are designed that way. What you resist, will persist. Just know that you can change your perception of your experiences in the blink of an eye. It's all about perception. If your problem has a solution, then why worry? If your problem has no solution, then why worry? Let it go ... just put it down and leave it there. 

Holding onto negative beliefs, thoughts, and experiences, is the same as drinking poison. It will kill you slowly, or quickly ... but in the end ... it will bring about the demise of your physical life existence. And all for something that was unnecessary and repairable. Do your Soul and your Body a huge favour and drop the tour of the past. Drop the festering. Just let it go ... don't give up, but voluntarily let it go and walk away. Do this, then take a deep breath, because you have defeated the real devil. You have taken away the powers of satan (the Opposer). You have taken control of the EGO. Congratulations.

We all have ONE central nervous system, running through the spine (the serpent/snake). 12 cranial nerves (12 apostles) leading to the brain. Notice the side of our skull is called "the temple" because this is where God/Source sits upon the throne. The place in the New Testament story where Jesus was crucified is called "Golgotha." This translates to "place of the skull." Within us lie two opposing forces - God, and Satan. This is Divine Higher-Self consciousness, and ego-based lower-self consciousness. Stay with me.

The central network for the nervous system is the solar plexus. The word origins of "solar plexus" is a reference to resemblance between the radial network of nerves and ganglia, and the rays of the sun. This sun, is the Sun of God, and all that we are, radiates FROM here. It is there, within the Mind where our self-centered ego will crucify Jesus (the old nature man), and where upon illumination, we come to the reality that the Christ Consciousness is within us, and then resurrects as the Divine Christ (the new Divine nature Son of God). 

So in order for us to learn and discern the difference between our opposing powers of God (Divine Self) and Satan (ego-self), we are presented with duality. But these TWO things are actually ONE thing presented in a range of polarity so that we know the fruits from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (bad). Duality exists in everything, but is in reality a range of one principle. Such as cold and hot, day and night, smooth and rough, bright and dim, soft and hard, tall and short, and pleasure and pain.

Both pleasure and pain are sourced in our one central nervous system. Electrically. kinetically, and as far as energy and information, they are delivered to us exactly the same ... from ONE system and are exactly the same except for the range of polarity in which we sense them. Pleasure feels good, pain does not. But they are both a feeling.

If we did not have pain, we would not know pleasure. If we did not have darkness, we would not know light. We need them both, we need to eat from both trees, to find our way back to the Tree of Life. The goodness, righteousness, and pleasure that Life can bring. The serpent in the garden (the Mind) is the catalyst for us to appreciate goodness and pleasure. If everyday was sunny, we would not know what a rainy day was like. 

Even energy and all things around us in the realm of the unseen function and operate based on positive and negative charges. Electrons, protons, neurons, molecules, atoms, everything that comprises all things including sound waves, light waves, radio waves, all are in flux and moving up and down all the time. Even the waves of the ocean are up and down. Everything experience is our life is either up or down. They cannot be both at the same time. But we can handle the ups and downs spiritually and emotionally with our free will and perception. 

You've never truly seen yourself. You can't. Because your eyes are in your face/head, and the visual center of perception is located within the darkness of your brain. To see an image of your entire self, you would need a reflection. Once you have seen the reflection, you learn and know that the reflection is nothing but an illusion, but it is there to show you ... YOU. We need TWO so that we can see there is ONE. 

Therefore, both pleasure and pain are the same ... just varying degrees of polarity. On one end of the spectrum there is the positive pleasure, and on the opposite end is the negative pain. Same line of reference, same system of delivery, so the two are one. This was also the teaching of Adam (positive/masculine) having Eve (negative/feminine) taken from his "side" (rib was the wrong word translation). It was Adam finding Eve and creating one union. We are each masculine and feminine. We are all Creators of our reality. The two become as one, and there is Love. The begotten of God/Source.

I hope you got something out of this one. It is a very long and deep teaching that is difficult to present in one short chapter. More will come in later writings.

The shorter version of this topic is "when you know, you know." You see, when you find out something that you didn't know anything about, you can no longer deny that you don't know it. It can't go away. You cannot erase the new in-formation that you have been exposed to. 

As a child, you learned and then knew the stove was hot and didn't touch it. You learned that running faster than your feet could handle would result in falling and being injured. You learned 2+2=4. You learned that kid named David in your 8th grade class was a bully. You learned once in a while your parent tossed back a beer after you went to sleep. The examples are endless - but the important thing is - once you know, you know. There is no way around this.

We can turn our head from tragedy but we still know about it. We can turn our head from a car accident but we know it happened. We can turn our head from a dead animal in the road but we still know that it wasn't a rag or shoes that fell out of a truck. We just KNOW. The things that enter our sensory perception centers in our brain, are there to stay. 

Knowing this, then it can be understood that when we ignore something that we already know, it won't simply go away or dissolve. Whistling or singing to the radio at a traffic light, won't erase the existence of the homeless man walking up and down the median asking for spare change. We know he is there. Yet, many do their best to ignore him, hoping that perhaps he'll just go away. He won't. He's still homeless and in need, whether you ignore them or not. 

There are also things that we choose not to know about. Things we avoid because we don't want what we think, act upon, or believe to be altered in any way. We want change at times, but we're not willing to participate in the process. We may not like it, or we may not want it, or we may be scared or fearful of new and different information. 

But whether we choose to know or not, or are fearful of acceptance, doesn't change the fact that the new information may be true, and real. Not knowing about it, doesn't change whether it is Truth, or illusion. It may very well be raining outside even though you don't believe it. This goes for business, industry, financial, education, politics, government, and even the religious system that you follow. 

Within ALL things you will find Truth and Illusion. Good and bad. Right and wrong. This is the duality of one that we need to discern what is right and beneficial for all people everywhere, and what is not. Once the Truth of a thing becomes known, the illusion dissipates into the phantom that it is. And then we KNOW. And we cannot UNKNOW. 

The advancement of Higher Consciousness and deeper awareness is dependent on humanity to progress, not regress. We can no longer "ignore" what we know. Knowingness allows us to raise our consciousness and to become better people individually and collectively. There are some things that are built-in from birth. Things you KNOW to be true and correct, the moment you witness them or experience their display. There is a Divine light of consciousness from Source Energy within all of us as a guide ... and intuition. 

When we do things that are "wrong," many times we feel a sinking emotion in our solar plexus ... that gut feeling. We must pay more attention to these instincts. This is our life GPS sending signals with the proper directions. When we don't listen to the still small voice within, we may become lost, or make a error in judgement (sin/mis-take), and usually the result will be consequences and not benefits. 

In closing, take more time to desire to know, and less time avoiding to know. In the end, we will all benefit. The more we know, the more we grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

In all the history of the world's Divine Saviours, they share the esoteric meaning of the cross. They are all similar in that they represent the Creative Principle (Divine Spirit) crucified upon the cross of matter.

The cross is not Christian in it's origins, though it was adopted by Christianity for its own symbolism. The cross is a universal symbol found throughout the ancient world upon their artifacts, temples, and tablets. In centuries BCE, the actual City of Nicea was designed in the form of a cross. Centuries later, the Aztecs used the cross as their symbol as well. 

If you look at man himself, standing straight up with arms outstretched, we can see a living symbol of this cross and it's mythical model. The mythical cross is cosmic in origin, not human. The significance of this cross is not because a man or Saviour was crucified upon it. In fact the myths of all Saviours say they were crucified upon a cross. There is significance and deep symbolism to this, and it is not intended to be merely a literal historical wooden cross with nails. 

The cross, like everything in Christian scriptures, is based upon Pagan Mythology. In fact, Christianity did not choose the cross until more than 300 after after the recorded crucifixion of Jesus as it's representative symbol. It had used the swastika, another ancient symbol for creative motion. The original word is Sanskrit and was suastika - meaning "good, being, well." Later, a lamb was used as the symbol representing Aries. Ultimately, the "crucifix" (the man nailed to and hung upon a cross) replaced it all among the Roman Church as it does today. A symbol of suffering and death rather than enlightenment and illumination, as was its original intent.

In ancient times, there were planetary and zodiacal meanings. 12 Stations of the Zodiac, in Greece there were "12 Labours of Hearacles," and in Egypt "12 tortures." The initiates into the Inner Mysteries of the hidden Wisdom had to suffer before he would be given the Sacred Tau, the cross of the hierophant (ancient priest). 

The seven major miracles are identical with the seven days of creation in the first book of the Bible - Genesis (meaning beginning or birth). This is Cosmology or Astrotheology ... heaven and God in the stars, skies, and planetary actions. As above, so below. As within, so without. As evolving, so involving. The story of creation was written in the stars by Pagan Mystics long before Christianity. See the 12 Houses of the Zodiac (12 Apostles) surrounded by the Sun of God (Christ/Sun) and you see much of where all the spiritual myths were derived. 

The cross, from the sky-view (heavens/Ouranos) ... the constellation Crux – otherwise called the Southern Cross – can be seen from Earth’s Southern Hemisphere and from tropical and subtropical regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

There is much more than can be covered on this subject but far too much for one review. We haven't even touched upon the Egyptian Ankh and it's metaphysical meanings and symbols. It is the Key of Life. We will go into more details in another chapter.

Remember that day way back when? The day that you got your Driver's License and you couldn't wait to take your folks car out for a ride ... all by yourself? There was excitement, anxiety, independence, power, fear, wonder, and countless other emotions all rolled up into that big event. You got the lecture. You took Driver's Ed. You watched Signal 40 or some other horrid video or film about the dangers of driving and the devastation of accidents. You went through it all and now here you were. Sitting in the drivers seat. Inserting the key into the ignition. You felt like an Astronaut and your mission was the moon. You, became the Driver. You were in-charge. You ... had grown up. 

The fun was mixed with burden. The action was mixed with worry. What if I screw up? What if I wreck my parents car? What if I hurt someone? It was all going through your head while the windows were rolled down, the radio was on, and the seats belts were rarely used, if at all. There were metal dashboards and pointed steering wheels. There were protruding metal objects on the tip of the hood. No airbags, and in some cases, no power steering or power brakes. Yet, you knew the power of smashing that accelerator, kicking in that 4 barrel carb, hitting "passing gear" and getting the thrill of your Life. You had power, control, and ... you had awesome responsibility to consider. What your decision process was, could end up in tranquility, or tragedy. It was your decision ... and you would rely on what you knew was right. 

Now, imagine being the Creative Principle behind the universe. And imagine having given mankind the key to the universe. There were instructions, given through experiences and interactive sages. Wise men of old who handed down the principles and ancient secrets as to how you could drive or Pilot this universe for the benefit of everyone, and without causing any accidents or harm to anyone. Yet, much of the world climbs into their conscious universe without any training, no studies, no Social Ed, and runs the pedal to the metal without so much as a thought about the consequences that may arise from being irresponsible. 

I remember my friend Steve. When he would find himself in trouble, we would hear his Mother say "awe, Stephen Paul, wait 'til your Father comes home." In other words, there would be a price to pay for what she deemed as irresponsible behaviour. It was more than likely stemming from something that was avoidable, had it been thought out ... response rather than reaction ... but rarely do we take the time to think things through. Just like that yellow light we just blew through ... we run yellow lights and even red lights right here in our own universe. Spiritually, emotionally, physically, and mentally. 

The Creative Process, or God, or Absolute, or Source Energy, has given us the key to the vehicle that was designed to provide safety and security to all the passengers of planet earth. And we're speeding through space at over 250,000 mph. I would suggest that all of us take a bit more responsible for this ride we're on, and this ride we're in. All of us have rubbernecked past that horrible highway accident a time or two, wondering if anyone survived. Well, let's rubberneck our way around this planet and be sure that all can survive. To stop the accidents, and the intentional neglect, wars, famine, disease, hunger, abuse, and all the negative emotions that come as karma to us all. I say we trade in Christine, for the Batmobile. Use the keys of love and peace, rather than mayhem and destruction. We've been given the keys to this planet, and we need to drive it responsibly.

“Azazel” or “the scapegoat” is mentioned in Leviticus:16 in the Old Testament Bible, as part of the Israelites belief in God’s instructions to the them regarding the Day of Atonement. On this day, the high priest would first offer a sacrifice for his sins and those of his household; then he would perform sacrifices for the nation. 

“From the Israelite community, the high priest was instructed to take two male goats for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering” (v. 5). The priest would bring the animals before God, and cast lots between the two goats – one to be a sacrifice, and the other to be the scapegoat. 

The first goat was then slaughtered for the sins of the people, and its blood used to cleanse the Most Holy Place, the tent of meeting, and the altar. 

After the cleansing, the live goat was brought to the high priest. Laying his hands on the scapegoat, the high priest was to confess over it "all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites – all their sins" – and then symbolically placed them on the goat’s head. 

He then sent away the goat away into the wilderness in the care of someone appointed for the task. The goat would carry - on itself - all their sins to a remote place; "and the man shall release it in the wilderness.” Symbolically, the scapegoat took on the sins of the Israelites, and removed them. For Christians, this is the ritual of the Christ story, to take upon the "sins of the world." 

As a side note, the name “Azazel” shows up in some ancient Hebrew mythology. While there are different versions in the Book of Enoch, the Book of the Giants, and other pseudepigraphal books, the story is essentially that Azazel was the name of one of the "fallen angels" who sinned in the Book of Genesis story. As a curse on his sin, Azazel was forced to take the form of a goat-like demon.

Keep in mind there were two types of "sins" in their ancient beliefs. One was INTENTIONAL, the other UNINTENTIONAL. For the unintentional, a fine would be paid. The difference between an intentional and an unintentional sin is that in the former case, both the body and the soul were at fault. In the case of an unintentional sin only the body was at fault, not the soul. 

Therefore, in their eyes, a physical sacrifice was needed since it was only the physical act of the body that was in the wrong. A physical sacrifice cannot atone for a deliberate sin, because it cannot rectify a wrong in the soul. So now you know why someone who takes on the fault for someone else, is called a scapegoat.

Let's jump right into this topic. Here's something to consider when looking at the Book of Revelation in the New Testament Bible ... the last book:

"In this case wisdom is needed: Let the person who has understanding calculate the total number of the beast, because it is a human total number, and the sum of the number is 666."
~Revelation 13:18 - International Standard Version

Now, know this: all Living organisms Must contain Carbon to exist on Earth as Physical Life. In other words, carbon forms the backbone of biology for all life on this Earth. These are the building blocks of Life. According to your DNA, you are either a Carbon being, or you a Carbon-based being. Either way you are carbon, and carbon is 666.

6 electrons
6 Protons (atomic number)
6 Neutrons

Also keep in mind, 666 equates to the number of the sun. 6 am. sunrise. 6 hours later noon, 6 hours later at 6 pm its sunset. A complete cycle. 

The ancient Babylonians using the sexagesimal (base-60) number system from which comes 60 minutes in an hour, 60 seconds in a minute, 360 (60×6) degrees in a circle, and 60 degrees in each angle of an equilateral triangle, etc. 360 divided by 10 = 36 and 6 x 6 = 36. Babylon worshiped gods that were associated with the sun, moon, planets, and stars involved with the study and practice of astrology.

Babylonians were the principle developers of astrology as we know it today, and the pagan priests wore amulets called “Sigilla Solis” or “Sun Seal” which symbolized 36 constellations. In this system of worship, they had 36 supreme gods plus the god associated with the sun, which they believed to be the father of all the other gods and so, as such, was supreme over ALL. They believed that numbers had power over the gods they worshiped, so they assigned numbers to their gods so that they could have power over them.

They did this by counting their gods and assigning a consecutive number to each of the 36 lesser supreme gods, and then added up these numbers (from 1 to 36) and assigned the sum total to the sun god. If you have not guessed by now, the sum of the numbers from 1 to 36 totals 666. The calculation is below:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20 + 21 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 26 + 27 + 28 + 29 + 30 + 31 + 32 + 33 + 34 + 35 + 36 = 666

In numerology (gematria), the number of the physical world is six, the number of the spiritual world is eight. 600 is the number of "cosmos", while 800 is the number of the "lord of the cosmos." Similarly, the sacred number of Jesus, 888, symbolizing the Spiritual Sun, is contrasted with the number 666, symbolizing that of the physical sun.

In another view, the author of the Book of Revelation was using numbers to send his early Christian readers a coded message. Turns out, what we see in the The Book of Revelation where the writer refers to 666 in an apocalyptic vision isn't entirely what we think of today. Put simply, 666 in this case, is being used as a code. A sort of riddle. This text was originally written in ancient Greek, where numbers are written as letters, as they are in Hebrew - the other main language of the original Biblical texts.

In this scenario, a held belief is that if you translate the Hebrew spelling of 666, you actually spell out "Neron Kesar" - the Hebrew spelling of Nero Caesar. So, now we know a much deeper significance of this powerful number, and how it can be applied in many different ways. 

In the Textus Receptus manuscripts of the New Testament, the Book of Revelation (13:17–18) cryptically asserts 666 to be "man's number" or "the number of a man" (depending on how the text is translated) associated with the Beast, an antagonistic creature. 

"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
~Revelation 13:18 - KJV

There is much more to the number 666 - and the veiled message - than just a satan, anti-Christ, or devil. In fact, we are told directly in Revelation, it is the "number of man."

For this writing, I am going to focus on some biblical scriptures that have some deep allegorical, metaphorical, and symbolic meaning beyond just the paper and ink. So, let’s start at the beginning. 

"And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day." 
~Genesis 1:5 (KJV)

The words which we find in the modern English Language Bible that translators interpret as "morning" and "evening" in Genesis 1, do not actually equate with our English words for those phenomena. In Hebrew, they actually mean "chaos/disorder" and "order" respectively.

Place yourself for a moment in the days when there was no electricity, and no lighting. When the sun went down, vision became blurry and disordered, and with the break of day it cleared. After all, what can be seen in darkness? The light pushes darkness out of the way and brings clarity into our lives in so many ways.

In the creation account of Genesis, the light existed BEFORE the sun and the stars were ever set in place. This was the light … of consciousness. We were brought out of the darkness, and into the light. Now lets move forward towards several other books contained in the Bible. 

"I Jesus, have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and MORNING STAR."
~Revelation 22:16 (KJV)

 "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
~John 9:5 (KJV)

 "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God ..."
~2 Corinthians 4:6 (KJV)

"And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever."
~Revelation 22:5 (KJV)

Now consider this - it is the same as when ours eyes are closed - we are in darkness. We are in chaos. This is the only time we can truly see inside ourselves. Without the light of the world, we will stay in chaos, with our eyes figuratively closed through Life. Our consciousness IS our light. It is our Mind that perceives everything, and remember that our brain is always in total darkness (inside our skull) … our entire Life. 

When we open our eyes, we see the light from the inside out, and the order of all of God's creation. The Morning Star represented mythically as Jesus Christ pushes the darkness and chaos out of our sight ... if we set our sights on the Divine Spark of Christ Consciousness within us. In the same manner, the Morning Star (Phosphorus in Greek, Lucifer in Latin - the Planet Venus) arrives each day to usher in the Morning Sun (Sun of God). See the connection? By the way, “Lucifer” is not the Devil/Satan. Only the King James Bible uses this term. But thats for another writing. See my chapter on Lucifer for details. 

WE will experience restoration and order in our lives ... just as the morning Sun brings ORDER from CHAOS. 

Awaken and open your eyes to see all that Life has to offer. Too much time in darkness with your eyes closed, and you'll stay asleep rather than be awake, and aware. Physically, spiritually, and consciously. 

Just a thought ...

Many would say that a Prophet would be one who foretells the future. One with the ability to see beyond now, and into the things yet to come. But let's look at the etymology of the word, and you will have a better understanding of what a Prophet truly is.

The word itself comes from the Greek "prophetes." Meaning "an interpreter of the Divine will." A spokesperson, especially of the gods. An inspired preacher or teacher. One who was considered to issue a prophetic word  ... one that would be so profound ... that it could have only come from the Mind of God.

The word Angel comes from the Greek "Aggelos" meaning messenger. One who conveys a message or news from God to man. A Messenger can come is many forms. The man at the convenient store, the lady at the bus stop, the homeless person asking for assistance. One who delivers a message FOR you at the right time that you need to hear it.

We must understand an important element of Truth when looking at both of these principles. The Ancients knew it, and science has proven it ... there is only NOW. This present moment. And just as a movie (motion picture) seems to flow seamlessly and fluidly, it is in truth, a series of still images at a speed that plays upon the Mind as if it were continuous movement.

Our Mind can only capture the world frame by frame. Each frame being a NOW. Then progressing to yet another NOW and so on. There is no future waiting for us. We must and do create it ... ALL of it. It is not pre-planned, or pre-destined ... it is unfolding with each and every collective thought of the entirety of humanity.

There is no way to predict, or prophesy the future, because we create it every nanosecond. Unless a seed is planted in our Mind as to what we believe the future may bring, and then we in turn manifest it in form based on our thoughts, there is no way to present any event in a future setting as a so called "prophecy."

Now, we must eliminate patterns and repeating experiences from this equation. Obviously, if someone does not take care of their health, for example, then we may predict that later in Life they may have serious problems with illness. But this is not prophecy. This is cause and effect based on repetitive circumstances, habits, and bad choices. 

Biblical prophesy in the days of ancient scripture was based on a person issuing a word or statement that was far beyond their normal capacity, and beyond their level of intelligence, and surely must've come directly from the mouth of God. This was their understanding. They were not sitting in a tent with a crystal ball looking into the future and forecasting events and circumstances, because it is an impossibility since the future does not exist until we bring it into form ... collectively as humanity.

Change the way you think, and you change what will manifest. It was Einstein who once said the definition of insanity was to do the same things over and over again and expect different results. WE are co-creators of the future. The entire future ... collectively as ONE. What mankind thinks, manifests, and acts upon; brings about the reality of what will manifest in form ... for everyone and every thing.

It has been said that “Myths are things that never happened but always are.” This quote is attributed to the 4th century Roman historian and mystic Sallustius. It describes the allegorical nature of Mythology and suggests that they contain behind their often fairy tale and fantastical nature, hidden Truths and higher meanings. 

Two quotes from the brilliant Joseph Campbell:

“All religions are true but none are literal.” 

― Joseph Campbell

“Myth is much more important and true than history. History is just journalism and you know how reliable that is.” 

― Joseph Campbell

The Bible is a message system ... a collection of myths, allegories, and metaphors containing deeper meanings that what lies at the surface. Scripture is abundantly filled with these hidden meanings presented in each chapter and verse. This was the design at its inception, by its original writers. Mystical meanings were hidden in the text, in the names, in the geography, in the nationalities, and in the stories ... for a purpose and for a deeper message. 

Take the names in the genealogy of Adam to Noah, and you will have a summary of the intended message ... in it's esoteric form. Designed, premeditated, intentional, and meant  for us to find ... when we earnestly look for it.

For example, when discovering the root meanings of each genealogical name written in Genesis (in the original Hebrew), and then put in order ... you will find this revelation:

Adam – Man
Seth – Appointed
Enosh – Mortal
Kenan – Sorrow
Mahalalel – The blessed God
Jared – Shall come down
Enoch – Teaching
Methuselah – His death shall bring
Lamech – Despair
Noah – Comfort and rest

Now, put those meanings into a complete sentence and you get: 

"Man appointed mortal sorrow, the blessed God shall come down teaching. His death shall bring despair comfort and rest."

The ancient Hebrews, and many other civilizations before them, used symbols to code their meanings. This was for many reasons. One of the simplest reasons was to separate an exoteric (outward) message for the masses, and an esoteric (inward) message for the initiates into the mysteries. 

When studying ancient spiritual scripture and writings, the original language(s) is paramount for understanding the intent and for translating property the apocalyptic (revealing what was hidden) style of the writers. There were no movies, books, or Internet back then as a means of entertainment. People told stories, and passed them down by word of mouth. It was ok to change things ... if it provided the listener with a deeper meaning or teaching. This was mythos (myth).

In a sense, Myths are stories that talk about the higher things and the more profound subject matters. They deal with the important issues that deal with God, cosmic origins, ultimate conclusions, purpose and destiny. They derive from humankind’s quest to answer the big questions concerning the nature of the Divine, the nature of reality, the human condition, consciousness, higher powers and our relationship to those higher powers. They deal with the meaning of Life.

Always look beyond the letter of the law. As it states for us in 2 Corinthians 3:6:

"... who also hath made us able ministers of the New Testament (new covenant); not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth Life."

Look for, meditate on, contemplate, and research within for the meanings behind the written story. Look between the black and white ... read between the lines. Divine Spirit will speak to you from within ... that still small voice. You'll know what vibrates the Truth, and what illusion is presented by it's disharmony.

Transformation means to go from one thing to another. Metamorphosis is to transform from one thing, into something greater. Metamorphosis (Greek word meaning transfigured - meta/after - morphosis/beautiful form) describes a conversion process, as the caterpillar changes form into a butterfly. But this is a very interesting process. You see, the slimy caterpillar of no particular beauty, crawls along the ground until eventually entering it's temporary prison. The chrysalis, or cocoon. There, it resides alone and in darkness, not knowing what may lay ahead. But when the time is right, it emerges as a beautiful winged Monarch Butterfly. Not merely a transformation, but a beautification ... a metamorphosis. This is the deeper meaning of this process of change from one form to another. 

Now, a look at a common Biblical scripture as it has been translated into English:

"And be not conformed to this world, but be 'transformed' by the renewing of your mind ..."
Romans 12:12 

The proper translation from the original Greek would've been "metamorphosis" rather than "transformation." You see, once a caterpillar has become a butterfly, there is no going back. Even if it wanted to. The same with Mind. Once it has morphed into a new and better way of thinking, it cannot go back to it's old ways. The desire is gone. The ability is gone. The old man is dead, and the new man has risen ... resurrected, and become born-again. 

Your true Self, your Divine Self, your God and Christ Self are eternal. You were with God/Source before you incarnated into matter here in Earth. An OT name for God is "Elohim" which is plural, not singular in the Hebrew (El is singular). This plural form means one, made up of the many ... that Father God, is made up of all the Sons and daughters of God. The particles, the fragments, that make up the entirety of the universe. 

Your Mother formed a garment of flesh for you, and your parents named you. You were conditioned and trained to believe yourself to be only human. To be only a physical being of matter. When you announce yourself to others, you precede the name your parents labeled you with ... by using your REAL name as a lead-in. I AM ... Robert. Or, I AM Diane. Do you see ... you are the I AM that I AM ... that WE ARE. This is why we asked earlier in Romans 12:2 to have "our Minds renewed." Man fell from the consciousness of God, to the consciousness of Man, so ... God became man, so that man can become God by the renewing of the Mind. 

Colossians 3:10 reminds us to put on the new renewed man ... the Christ, the Spirit or Mind of God which is the All in All. The Source and destination of all things. The Alpha and the Omega. The beginning, and the end. 

Just a thought ...
