To become like a child one must remove all preconceived ideas about life and remove value on items in life.
To see things in openness of mind and not from a selfish mind.
To give without expectations.

As we have moved from the Winter into Spring, Easter is celebrating the life given force of the Sun. The Sun lines up with the cardinal point in the East at the spring equinox and then starts to makes its accent in to the sky and thus claims to be risen “SON” and rising into its full glory giving life to man and the earth as we see in spring. Thus Celebrating East-Star.
Following the Magi of old. Christ the lamb is the atonement. Following the Sun from the spring equinox it is entering into Aries as the male sheep sacrifice to God and is consumed with fire. The time is to depict the crucifixion day in and around the time of Christ. Something to think about.

I have been looking into the mystical use of numbers and I am finding some very reveling wisdom in the relationship of them and the universal governing powers that control our lives. The one I would like to talk about is the number 9.
From childhood we learn to count and then mathematics. We begin to learn the more complex systems of algebra and if you made it this far going into trigonometry and calculus. Geometry is part of mathematics that deals with measurements of shapes, area and volume of things and the properties of space. Geometry is from the ancient Greek meaning “earth-measurement”. Geometry would fall into the field of astronomy and the relationship between movements of celestial bodies and the mapping the positions of stars and planets which is part of astronomy.
The numbers game is something to be explored and is quite mind boggling. All of us have a favorite number or what we feel is a lucky number. Some have numbers that keep repeating or showing up in one’s life. The number 40 used to be one for me. Numbers are assigned to us as a security insurance number. Our birthdates are related to numbers and the stars.
Numbers are a secret language by themselves. There are important numbers in the system and the number 1 being holy as far as a God and in many beliefs there are 3 aspects that are given to that God and thus being a triad. This would say 1 being 3 or 3 being 1… so I guess one could say 1 and 3 are equal. Add them together and you would get 4 which means power or strength. Four is also the number for man.
In Zen, 0 is a number with a value although people don’t recognize it to have a value. But without knowing the value of 0, I would not see the value in 1.
Reading the bible 3’s, 7’s and 12’s are most noticeable.
3 is related to some sort of change has happened or “Divine purpose”.
7 is usually related to Gods power “Perfection”
12 was related to power and authority as in the disciples or the elders. 12 being” Government”
The number nine is noted in biblical scripture 49 times stated by, http://www.biblestudy.org/bibleref/meaning-of-numbers-in-bible/9.html, but I would say the number 9 is repeated time and time again in the bible but a lot of people do not see or catch the clever masking of it. Let me give you an example of what I am talking about. What if I was to say if you would add the number 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 together they would equal nine? You would say impossible at first glance, but this is how the mystical crafters worked. Lets break the numbers down in a way to have them add in pairs; so (1+2= 3); (3+4=7); (5+6=11); (7+8=15); (9+0=9) so we are left with 3, 7, 11, 15 and 9.
Add 3, 7, 11, 15 and 9 and you get 45 and 4+5=9.
In a simpler way just add 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+0=45 and 4+5=9
Remember this is a numbers game and 3, 7, 11, 15 have meanings as well. In seeing this we did produce the number 9 in the hidden formation of numbers. It is a code that is threaded throughout the bible and only those would have the ability to drop the crap that we have been influence by can begin to see the truth. Going to the 4 groups of number related to nine, here being 3, 7, 11, 15 they add up to 36
Let me throw out some other numbers. 360 = 9. 360 drop the zero and we have 36 and 3+6 = 9. We associate 360 as being a complete circle in degrees and each quarter of this circle is 90 degrees and half 90 is 45 thus 4+5=9. If we take each degree of right angles here and go from 0 to 90 then 180 then to 270 and complete the circle of 360 each value on their own adds up to 9. Looking at the compass we are taught that we have four directions North, South, East and West. And those are usually drawn out in two lines of longitude and latitude, one from top to bottom and one from side to side. But in reality we live in the spaces between these cardinal points. Thus being Northeast, Southeast, Southwest and Northwest each of these having 9 letters to form the areas in which we live. Now take that one more step and take each 90 degree point and add or subtract the next 45 degree angle and the number would still add to 9. IE: 90 degrees plus 45 degrees =135 and 1+3+5 = 9.
So I would say the best direction to follow is 9 which in Hebrew is “New life” and 9 is supreme consciousness and in Buddhism we come to the 9th consciousness.
The number nine gas been portrayed in song and movies. Johnny Deep played the role in the “Ninth gate”. Tim Burton’s stop figure animation “9” and the Beatles “Revolution 9” from their White album which was from their 9th UK album released.
John Lennon liked to the number 9 and lived at an address of; 9 Newcastle rd, Wavertree, Liverpool. Each name here has 9 letters. Lennon was born on Oct 9th. Love potion number 9 was a popular song in the sixties and was made into a movie as well.
Nicola Tesla was intrigued by numbers as well. He quoted If you only knew the magnificence of 3, 6 and 9 then you would have a key to the universe. It basically boiled down to energy/field/consciousness, which equates in to electricity, magnetism, consciousness.
Nine in the precession of numbers is the highest one can go before a new number begins usually with a 1 thus creating the next series of numbers IE 9 then goes to10. 99 then goes to 100, 999 then to 1000
The human is thought to be carried in the womb for 9 months.
Christ died in the 9th hour.
Christ died at the age 33 and 3×3=9
In gen 6:3 (equals 9) God set the life span of man to 120 ( 120 drop the 0 and is 12 and equals 3. 12 is also governing law and man cannot pass this age)
The mark of the beast is 666 and this =’s 9. 6+6+6=18 and 1+8 =9.
The chosen 144,000 in revelations is 1+4+4 = 9
In the 145th Psalm we find 9 reasons for praising God.
From the book Numbers and their Occult power by Wynn Westcott; Attention is called to its being an emblem of Matter, which, ever varying, is never destroyed; so the number 9 when multiplied by any number always reproduces itself,
thus: – 9 times 2 are 18 and 8+1=9; and so on below:
9×3=27; 2+7=9 9×12=108; 1+8=9
9×4=36; 3+6=9 9×13=117; 7+1+1=9
9×5=45; 4+5=9 9×14=126; 6+2+1=9
9×6=54; 5+4=9 9×15=135; 5+3+1=9
9×7=63; 6+3=9 9×16=144; 4+4+1=9
9×8=72;7+2=9 9×17=153; 3+5+1=9
9×9=81; 8+1=9 9×18=162; 2+6+1=9
9×10=90; 9+0=9 9×19=171; 1+7+1=9
9×11=99; 9×20=180; 8+1+0=9
Cats are to said to have 9 lives and in the hyrogithic we can see the black cat Bastet
Throwing in a 7
Lastly God being light; As I have stated before in other post the light I talk about is all frequencies in the known spectrum.
The speed of light in MPH is 670,616,629 mph, 299,792,458 meters per second, or 186, 282 miles per second. Light takes approximately one second to travel the 238,854 miles to the moon. The speed of light is considered a physical constant that is used in many areas of physics. This is because light always travels at this speed in space or in a vacuum regardless of the measurement source or observer. The most popular use of the speed of light is in Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity, E=mc^2, where c represents the speed of light. More formally, the speed of light is the speed of a mass-less particle in a vacuum and is the upper bound on which energy or matter can travel.
From this lets see the numbers work with the speed of light it says the speed of light in mph’s is 670,616,629. If you add them in their groupings of 670+616+629 you would get a total of 1915. 19+15 is 34 and 3+4 =7. If you add them as 1+9+1+5 you would get 16 and 1+6=7. If you add these number by themselves 6+7+0+6+1+6+6+2+9 it would = 43 and 4+3 =7 again. If you add 6+7+0=13, 6+1+6 = 13 and 6+2+9 =17. Add them either as 13+13+17=43 and 4+3=7 or 1+3+1+3+1+7=16 and 1+6=7. God being light and 7 is the Number related to God in the bible. So I would say that the first verse of Genesis is God created a body for himself which is light
Before Adam and Eve ate, God said In that day would will surely die. Not in the sense of body but in the sense of mind. A lot of people walk around like a zombie or living corpse with no life or no thought. We have gotten disconnected from God as being the cosmos.
Open your mind and you open the cosmos

In Buddhism the Idea of the Hungry Ghost are spirits that are lingering around the edges of the mortal realm, trapped by their over attachment to the world, the hungry ghosts, or pretas, are in the grip of their unfulfilled desires. This is symbolized by their huge bellies and tiny mouths that can never satisfy their appetites. From (http://www.wisdomlib.org/definition/realm-of-hungry-ghosts/index.html) Likewise we all have these cravings as these hungry ghost and we all have something we get carried away with and that can enslave us. In my view of things, I have come to understand the biblical roaming lion that comes to kill and destroy is the fleshly desires and the scriptures have called this Satan. I will add that EGO does play a controlling part here but what I want to focus on is addictions, habits and desire because they all kind of go hand in hand.
It is a normal condition of the thoughts of man to desire and because of a physical body and the makeup of emotions we do suffer. Through experience of desire we have distinguished between what brings pleasure and pain. The wanting is not to suffer and this is the nature of us as humans in the flesh and it is the mind, body and soul working together to attain these things that bring less suffering. It is out of this idea of suffering and survival that we begin to want more to suffer less. This becomes our desire. This is the inner struggle and Buddha has stated that this desire is the one who builds the house.
In understanding what it is to suffer as Buddha has stated it is to desire, to help end suffering we must not desire. This is difficult because we want and need. Part of suffering for man is to find a way to kill the pain caused by suffering and in finding a way to numb this suffering for someone is addiction. Now keep in mind that addictions never start as addictions, they evolve. Part of this is to feed the body with drugs, sex, alcohol, gambling, shopping and food. The flesh is not in and of itself evil as to say bad. But it is the thoughts that man has as to use this body as a tool to end suffering or cause it. We feel and exist in the body and have learned what it is to hunger, to need and feel pain. But deeper than that, it is to satisfy the unsatisfiable as the hungry ghost. I would like to say that it all starts with a desire, a curiosity, a wanting to try something to help ease the suffering. Then for some, having tasted of it, can reject it or try it again. If satisfied with the results one can start making it a routine or habit. Once formed into their daily or weekly routine it can become an addiction and this addiction is what drives the force even harder. This addiction which you have created begins to consume your time, your health, your money and for some their family’s to the point of ruin and death. This root can run deep and create psychological and physiological effects.
Addictions can be simple as well, simple as just going to the local coffee places and getting the mochas coffee’s. Just once a week and then twice a week and finally daily, some even multiple times a day. Next the craving causes us to want more and the servings get larger with more chocolate added… etc. After about 6 months you begin to wonder why you have gain 30 pounds and then feel miserable because you look at yourself as fat and now you have to find a new routine of going to the gym to get thin and the process now starts again but with a new goal, to not suffer in being overweight. So as to help with suffering we can get caught up with self medicating actions that are commonly related to alcohol, drugs (includes cigarettes and prescriptions) and sexual release. I picked these because they are the quickest way to release stress and if not handled correctly these can become our addictions and when they do we become trapped and if not dealt with they can become our prison and we are now worse off than before. Mind you there are many things we do that are addictive but please understand the point here.
A Facebook friend posted, “We are free to do all things but without discipline we will be brought to ruin”.
I know there is a lot in the realm of human psychology and behavior, I am not an expert. I am merely conveying my thoughts and experience here. I know that a person can overcome addiction and some people cannot. Some have physiological issues or depression that goes a long with it and I would advise to seek professional help. I have overcome several addictions myself and still working on these keeping them under control. The temptation is always present but it is a choice to stand against these or submit to them is mine. I will say it is not a right or wrong doing, it is a condition many find ourselves in and it is what the scriptures try and warn us about in calling it a pit or rut we have fallen into.
Habits and addictions can be balanced and subdued. With the right mind-set progress can be made, BUT, it is a very slippery slope that can entangle anyone and without discipline eventually they can overtake you again and do worse. This is in a sense is casting out demons within us. I will say one of the biggest help in this is purpose. Find purpose to overcome. Sometimes addictions have come in the way in order to cope with our situation we have found ourselves in. We always want what’s better for us but are blind in the way of getting it. This is ignorance. The bible talks about attaining “Knowledge” which is information and “Wisdom” which knows how to apply it. The problem is we turn to quick solutions instead of doing the hard work sometimes. There are the 12 step programs and Celebrate Recovery programs that have help a lot of people, but there are some that feel they don’t need it and they can fight it by themselves. I say more power to you. I am this type of person as well and I will say it takes daily discipline and constant self checks and deep mental thought processing which goes along with a lot of inner self-seeking.
Please do not think I am preaching here, I try to stay away from the religious side of this as much as I can, because religion has been a big stumbling block for me in the area of guilt and shame. I have found a narrow way here which I seem to think is the most practical approach and not wishful thinking. From the beginning of this blog the main point was to find that narrow path which leads to that higher realm on the mountain. That place which is in you, “to succeed”. We need to shut out all the outside influences and sit quietly and with no thought seek that which is in and when you find it the truth will be revealed. That is what I am trying to show you here in each post. IT IS YOU and we are at war with ourselves. Some will lose this battle and this is a sad and grievous thing. We have lost a lot of famous people and a lot of family members and friends to the war within. (You’ll be missed Mr. Williams and Ms. Winehouse)
I am not saying we are a hopeless creature, it is quite opposite. The more I find who I am the more wonderful I see what I am. I AM ALL THINGS rolled into one being. I am Good and I am Evil. I am Flesh and I am Spirit, I am Happiness and I am Sadness. I am Salvation and I am Destruction. I AM ALL. I am in Control and I am out of Control. I am Careless and I am Mindful. Sometimes I feel like I am this nuclear power that needs to be held together through peace within myself or I will be blown apart and out of control like this pulsation “orb of energy” that can bring destruction to myself or others through actions or words. But that’s the beauty in knowing this, “I am aware of my wholeness”. We need to stay focused of that center that is within. Like the eye of the hurricane we must stay centered and calm even though the storm is around us, this is the safe place in the center within the eye. If you meditated then you know what I am saying here. We need to seek a balance within us to see this peace. This is the Lion and lamb lying down with each other. This is the flesh and spirit being one in peace. As Shakespeare put it from Hamlet,”To thine own self be true”, and from the Greek, “Know Thyself”. Know your strengths and weaknesses and keep them in check.
So in the lower realms we want and desire what the flesh thinks it needs. It all comes down to stimulation of the senses. In Mark 9:47, Jesus stated if your eye causes you to sin pluck it out, if you hand causes you to sin cut it off. Now again do not take this literal like some Christian do. Some people have self mutilated themselves because they misinterpreted the scriptures or where told to by their leaders to do so. Jesus was talking about the same thing Buddha was and it is DESIRE. In the same sense the eye is what we see and want the hand is what the flesh wants and takes. Like the two thieves that were crucified with Christ on either side, so are the physical eyes that see and rob from us. Christ also said in this same scripture, “It is better to enter the kingdom of God with “THE ONE EYE” than with both”. So the idea is to see inside of us instead of what’s outside of us. If we stop looking outwardly then we can stop longing for what we want in order to satisfy the Hungry Ghost. That’s all Christ is saying.
In the letters Paul writes he himself is afflicted in the flesh. Whether or not this was a physical defect or an addiction of sort at the point of his conversion many scholars have debated this but it is still unknown, but Paul did anguish over it. He knew of the higher realm and stated he struggled in the flesh. Romans 7:18-19 For I know that in me, dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19;For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. We’ve all been here; we’ve all had to deal with or are still dealing with these things… addiction, habits and desires. Some of us still do and I still have addictions, habits and desires. I struggle with all the temptations of the flesh and have conquered some which had enslaved me and will no longer affect my health. Others I am still trying to find balance and release. It is a matter of balance. It is a matter of self-discipline. To strengthen the mind to control the flesh.
Here are a few scriptures to point to this… 1 Corinthians 6:12 “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
1 Peter 1:13-16King James Version (KJV)13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
NIV 1 Peter 1:13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled.
Romans 7:20-26 KJV. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21;I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22;For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:23;But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24;O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?25;I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
I add this; The loins of your mind are the lower aspects of the flesh and the base chakras energies. Sober is to be clear minded with no preconceived idea or blurred thought. When water is still, all the sediment will sink to the bottom, and it will become clear. That’s why water in scripture is used to represent thought.
Be discipline against lusts and rise up to the higher things of the mind which are all things Christ, please understand this that the higher mind is the Christ and anointing and if you have read my posts “holy” is not to be good but to be whole as in one or connected as one or complete. To seek God is to seek self. Jesus said seek ye first the kingdom of God. He also said the kingdom was within you. So seek that which is in you. Go into yourself and seek you. So meditate and reach the mind. The truth is the real consciousness of who you are and that consciousness is connected to the consciousness of the cosmos or universe which is God and it is this consciousness is which Adam fell from and is the fleshly death.
Addition, Habits and Desire defined; (wiki)Addiction is the continued repetition of a behavior despite adverse consequences, or a neurological impairment leading to such behaviors According to many addiction specialists, potential addictions can include, but are not limited to, drug abuse, exercise addiction, food addiction, computer addiction and gambling. Currently, however, only substance addictions and gambling addiction are recognized by the DSM-5. Classic hallmarks of addiction include impaired control over substances or behavior, preoccupation with substance or behavior, continued use despite consequences, and denial. Habits and patterns associated with addiction are typically characterized by immediate gratification (short-term reward), coupled with delayed deleterious effects (long-term costs). (wiki)
(wiki) A habit is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur unconsciously. In the American Journal of Psychology (1903) it is defined in this way: “A habit, from the standpoint of psychology, is a more or less fixed way of thinking, willing, or feeling acquired through previous repetition of a mental experience. Habitual behavior often goes unnoticed in persons exhibiting it, because a person does not need to engage in self-analysis when undertaking routine tasks. Habits are sometimes compulsory. The process by which new behaviors become automatic is habit formation. Old habits are hard to break and new habits are hard to form because the behavioral patterns we repeat are imprinted in our neural pathways, but it is possible to form new habits through repetition. (I added this to fit the complete thought; “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.”) As behaviors are repeated in a consistent context, there is an incremental increase in the link between the context and the action. This increases the automaticity of the behavior in that context. Features of an automatic behavior are all or some of: efficiency, lack of awareness, unintentionality, uncontrollability (wiki) (wiki)Desire is a sense of longing or hoping for a person, object, or outcome. The same sense is expressed by emotions such as “craving” or “hankering“. When a person desires something or someone, their sense of longing is excited by the enjoyment or the thought of the item or person, and they want to take actions to obtain their goal. The motivational aspect of desire has long been noted by philosophers; Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) asserted that human desire is the fundamental motivation of all human action. (wiki)In Hinduism, the Rig Veda’s creation myth Nasadiya Sukta states regarding the one (ekam) spirit: “In the beginning there was Desire (kama) that was first seed of mind. Poets found the bond of being in non-being in their heart’s thought”.
(wiki)In Buddhism, for an individual to effect his or her liberation, the flow of sense-desire must be cut completely; however, while training, he or she must work with motivational processes based on skilfully applied desire. According to the early Buddhist scriptures, the Buddha stated that monks should “generate desire” for the sake of fostering skillful qualities and abandoning unskillful ones. While desires are often classified as emotions by laypersons, psychologists often describe desires as different from emotions; psychologists tend to argue that desires arise from bodily structures, such as the stomach’s need for food, whereas emotions arise from a person’s mental state. Marketing and advertising companies have used psychological research on how desire is stimulated to find more effective ways to induce consumers into buying a given product or service. While some advertising attempts to give buyers a sense of lack or wanting, other types of advertising create desire associating the product with desirable attributes, by showing either a celebrity or a model with the product. The theme of desire is at the core of romance novels, which often create drama by showing cases where human desire is impeded by social conventions, class, or cultural barriers. The theme of desire is also used in other literary genres, such as gothic novels (e.g., Dracula by Bram Stoker, in which desire is mingled with fear and dread). Poets ranging from Homer to Toni Morrison have dealt with the themes of desire in their work. Just as desire is central to the written fiction genre of romance, it is the central theme of melodrama films, which use plots that appeal to the heightened emotions of the audience by showing “crises of human emotion, failed romance or friendship”, in which desire is thwarted or unrequited. (wiki)
Luke 21:34″Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. (niv)
Mark 4:19 But the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. (niv)
I add from a previous post, If caught in a tree or thicket, to set oneself free, one can only cut one branch at a time. So just like life’s problems and habits. Cut one at a time. Soon you will be free. Do not become overwhelmed by your dilemma but work in persistence and cut out what you can one at a time. Some branches are big and strong and may take a long time and may require a lot of energy to cut and break. Others are easy and small. But to see the changes that you want you must start doing it.
Nothing happens by itself. I have come to believe that God is the consciousness and the nature of the cosmos. But more than that God is a divine intelligence that we can see around us. The laws that force all things to do what they do. The Chinese call this the Tao or Dao. The way. We need to work in harmony with each other and take care of each other.

I am a big idealist when it comes to the thought of keeping things in proper perspective. All things have their opposites (even you) in that being said all things have their soft side and hard side, their comforting side and rebuking side, their physical side and spiritual side, their creative side and destructive side. Think of a red rose and in all its beauty and in that we have to remember it has thorns. But the beauty and the thorns together make it the rose.
In all things balance must be maintained for these forces to exist in each one. I believe that the image in the bible of the lion laying down with the lamb gives us that image of balance and a lot of Christian don’t understand this. If you have been following this blog then you know I have come to understand in a mystical sense that the lion is the flesh and devoirs with its appetites and the lamb is the gentle spirit in us that can get lost and led a stray by outside forces if not watched closely, which are the wolves that howl. In following them both individually they in and of themselves can put us on a path of destruction. The bible says not to stray to the left or the right but keep straight on the path. Gautama Buddha stated, “If you tighten the string too tight it will snap, but if it is too loose it will not play.” From this, he realized that he would have to take a “middle-way” to reach enlightenment and not by using extremes. I see here balance in all things is the way and the path.
The words are a light for this path to find and guide you as you walk the narrow way of balance, not giving into either side and getting carried away. We must find and keep balance in all things.
Fire, water, air and earth are our 4 basic elements and all have the ability to bring forth life and destroy life. We can see and feel the comfort of a campfire as we roast marshmallows and we can see the ravaging of the forest fire. We can feel the gentle refreshing rain as it brings life to all and can see the destruction of the floods and Tsunamis. With the earth we receive bountiful harvest from the fields, find protection in caves and see the wondrous beauties of the mountain’s and valley’s. But the destruction of an earthquake can wipe out cities in a matter of moments. A gentle breeze refreshes on a hot summers day and a tornado or hurricane brings sorrow.
In the idea of the Hindu gods Kali and Shiva represent these two forces. Kali being the Goddess of destruction and Shiva the God of rebirth and life and they go together. The Hindu thought knows this and these two Gods are married because they are one and are opposite of each other. Thus the balance between the two must be shared. So in our own life we too must keep balance from the spirit and the flesh. Yeshua (Jesus) said, “The road to destruction is broad and wide but the path (Gate) to righteousness (or rightness as I call it) is narrow”. Mathew 7:13. ( it is interesting in reading from chapter 7 verse 7 to 13 that it is under the heading Ask, Seek and Knock in the NIV version ).
Getting back to balance, from the flesh side, sex, drugs, alcohol and food are pleasurable and also destructive forces which lead to addictions. From the spirit, religion and magic can be a delight and if carried away it becomes destructive in which hating or killing a brother because he believes different from you.
1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify. So where do we find balance? Mathew 7:7-11; 7″Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”. 8″For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened”. 9″Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10″Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake“? 11″If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him”! Many Christians are taught to believe Jesus was pointing out a negative action here as to say of course we are not going to give a snake or stone as gifts, BUT, if those of you who have insight to the mystical side Jesus was praising the people stating that yes you are teaching your children to go inside and touch the stone with the snake and this is a good gift and when you do then God will give you more. We need to go inside ourselves and seek, knock and ask. As I pointed out in Mathew chapter 7 Jesus was talking about the gate to the path and only a “few” will find it. So are many Christians on a path to destruction by Christ own words? Maybe.
In the above passage I believe Jesus was asking a direct question and not a question that sounds silly. He talks about giving good gifts and by no mistake he used the snake and the stone here which represents the pineal gland (stone) and the Kundilini (snake) in meaning ‘How many of you are teaching your children these things (meditate). The great snake Mucalinda covered Buddha as he sat and meditated while protecting him against the tempest (storm) for seven days. Seven here could be the seven chakra’s. Buddha was under the Bodhi Tree when this happen.
I have found that the Bodhi tree is a Fig tree and it is thought that in the story of Adam and Eve the serpent was in the tree and after the fall Adam and Eve covered themselves with Fig leaves. Jesus had rebuked the fig tree for not having fruit and in another story Jesus saw Nathanael sitting under a fig tree meditating in secret. A fig blossoms from the inside. So we to have to blossom from within. The name meaning of Nathanael is,” God has given”.
The book off Ecclesiastes is about living in balance, to not chase after things in either direction of flesh and spirit but to live in the center of live and find the joy and happiness in the impermanence of it all, because in a hundred years from now all the people on earth will be a new generation and the old will have passed.
15 In this meaningless life of mine I have seen both of these:
the righteous perishing in their righteousness,
and the wicked living long in their wickedness.
16 Do not be over-righteous,
neither be overwise—
why destroy yourself?
17 Do not be overwicked,
and do not be a fool—
why die before your time?
18 It is good to grasp the one
and not let go of the other.
Whoever fears God will avoid all extremes.
We must find the balance within ourselves

Life is the Drama that is covered by a veil.
If life is constant change then and there is no permanence then life is an illusion by definition. I can’t help thinking that we live in a real life drama put on and played out by or own thoughts, arranged in such a way that we fool ourselves into thinking it is reality and in this reality we create all aspects’ of our lives. But what if it was only a half truth or maybe not even a truth at all but a play which we are the main actor. The question of all things is what is really going on? Alan Watts would talk about tapestry and embroidery work that his mother used to repair and create. We see the beautiful work on the front but hide the back were the real workings are to produce the imagery on the front. The back would show how it was put together and give all the secrets away on how it was made. Likewise we do the same things; we always put forth our best but never let the true self be seen. The inner thoughts and secrets of who we are and what we are like which is the true self. Religion has set up part of this game called hide and seek as far as us playing our part and as well as every social function there is and this is always set up by a high ruling force that governs the people. That was the way it was set up at the time of Jesus the Christ. The Jewish leaders ruled by religion and the Romans were the government and the two will always go together and at this present time nothing has changed but the names.
The veil in which we live is the things we cannot see or touch IE, the realms of physical and non-physical. The Idea of God is such, I cannot see him as a person in whom we are lead to believe exists, but I can see the evidence of his existence in the world around me in which we call creation. God states he is the God of visible and non visible things. God also states he is the creator of good and evil. So is God a living or constant power we can connect with to create through this physical body? Moses was the only one that was able to see God and it change his physical appearance and in that being said God showed Moses his backside and I can see that Moses saw the back of the tapestry here as to say the inner workings of God.
I can say that if we start living in the belief of God as being the main power source of the universe and the intelligence behind it then our appearance changes too inwardly and outwardly. The scientist and people whom have spent billions on the large Hadron Collider to smash atoms have got to understand there is this power. Their hopes are to find the God partial. I have to think they are on to something that can change the world once found and if they are able to reproduce it. So if God is the main source of all power then we need to learn how to connect with it and be able to use it.
The atom is the main part of any particle and how it holds together through the electron. Electricity is used for many great things and we call this good but if it is used wrong then it can burn the house down, create other damage and in a sense evil. So the idea that God said he is the creator of good and evil this would fit this example. “This power, which is GOD, is to create” and it is throughout the cosmos. Is this what the scientists want and spent billions on?
We see and hear in just a small band of the frequency chart (again another veil) but there is so much more energy we don’t know about. I call this the mysteries of the” Veiled God”. We have been able to use microwaves to cook dinner and we have been able to use them as a weapon and create destruction. Radio and television waves bring us or favorite shows but are also use to penetrate our way of thinking. Was can see we are trying to understand gamma rays and cosmic rays that are out there in the universe and one day we will and learn how to harness this energy and find good and bad uses for it, for this is the nature of man to use God for his own folly and wickedness. (Let me insert my definition of evil which I see is,” To do any harm to another being for self gain or profit”).
The idea of a veil is to hide or cover something from plain view. Other things are hidden in plain sight but it is the same idea to camouflage or conceal. The hiding starts to bring curiosity and from that intrigue as to get our attention. The magician uses this trick to cover his trickery/magic which in a sense is an illusion to cover and create another illusion; this is the art of distraction to cover or veil what he is up to, so as to pull off his illusion. It is all to fool the mind and therefore is a deception. All a Magician is, is a great liar. Nothing he does is real but slight of hand or and illusion. Satan is called by Jesus the father of lies and here he fits into this idea as the father of illusions.
A new product that is on display maybe veiled until the right moment then pulled off to reveal its true identity and purpose of why we need it as humans. The strip teases and like dancers entices the senses and imagination without giving the show away and if they are willing and found a suitor for a price they may go into another room behind closed doors to veil their next actions. So it is with our inner minds, the more we go deeper into it, the thicker the veils which hide our intents and motives behind all our actions. This is where I have come to believe the soul is.
But in the idea of the post in the area of religion and moral issues didn’t we as the great actor in this drama of life now take on a new role to play? The role not as a sinner but now as a saint and in this start changing our actions to now show the change in role? Desire is what drives us forward. It is desire that builds the house of illusion we live in. It is desire that motivates our actions either through flesh or spirit. Some would call this acting out the desires of the flesh a sin as to giving into the flesh. Is that what this is all about, a battle between the flesh and the mind/spirit and who will be victorious? Kind of like the villain and hero, I can’t have one without the other because what are they to do if either one does not exist? Our makeup is like to ends of a magnet the North and the South Pole and these make the magnet work. Though it is one object in and of itself there is it’s duality at both ends. So are we flesh and spirit these are our pole ends and in ourselves these two must work together in balance to function properly.
We all have basic survival needs and the basic of all is to eat and have sex and then from that we begin to build our social structure around that and we fool ourselves into thinking this is not what we want. I would say the basic need for the soul is love we all want love and we try and find it in outer things and substance and in between the flesh and the soul/spirit we create the drama in or lives…everything we do and say are based from these things and we don’t want to admit it, so we cover it and hide behind it and the term is we hide behind the mask we wear as to veil or hide our face and now this is our persona. (A persona in the word’s everyday usage is a social role or a character played by an actor. The word is derived from Latin, where it originally referred to a theatrical mask: Wiki)
So this is the drama we are playing out and all our secrets are veiled and we won’t let anyone see who we are. The bibles idea of the lion lying down with the lamb is just this …Balance… of the flesh and the spirit. The lion is the flesh that devourers and is unsatisfied and the lamb is the timid spirit that is quiet and lead astray (or free spirited). The idea of Jesus the Christ is the mind that controls our actions. We need to be watchful as the Sheppard of our thoughts and actions. In many culture statues have be made to represent the person that was at one time and glorify them in monuments and this is personification.
In the idea of the Hindu God’s they are there personified to represent the powers that make up life and it cycles as to represent what is really going on . We can see the personification of this thought with the Greek creatures that are half man and half beast and other god’s that made up their culture and we call these myths today. The Greek god “Pan” is a favorite of the illuminati due to it’s a lustful man goat that will eat greedily anything in its path and use music to lure and control its prey. Many associate it for the idea of Satan.
To add to the drama we have set up rules for ourselves and have created that they or from God himself and if we disobey these rules then we must suffer and pay dearly and the idea we are sold on as Hell. At the time of the setting up the rules and laws of God for the Israelites states that Moses and Aaron could go before God and only the high priest could go into the temple. The temple being set up into three areas and the most holy of holies was veiled and nobody could just enter in only the high priest and it was through these priests that the people began to give trust to in the things of God. The power the priest had began to become great and the people of Israel now fell under their rule and listen to them or God would strike them down. As time went on their power became so great that they used this power over the people to get rich and fraud them all in the name of God . Jesus called them thieves and liars in the trickery used over the people and it was all veiled under religion and the fear of God, and the people bought it. The Roman Catholic Church under Constantine and Rome has followed suit with the Israelites ideal to create their empire to worship their pagan Gods under the veil of the name of God and did it all under brute force called the crusades’ and inquisitions’. It was to bring nations,tribes and people under submission to men and not God.
2 Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remained the same veil not taken away in the reading of the old testament; which the veil is done away in Christ. 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart. 16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away. KJV (I will add the “IT” is says in verse 15 refers to the mind and our thoughts which is the Christ the anointment of man).
1 John 2:27 But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true–it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.
Meditate and seek within you because that is where the true kingdom of God is. Go within behind the veil yourself and seek you and once you do Christ will meet you there. Roman 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
