How Will You Know When You Are Enlightened?

Hello, Friends,

I have been following some posts in the RC Park group as to belief systems.  So to save you from an unnecessary waste of your precious time to formulate a permanent ego-personality (soul personality), I offer some concepts to consider.

I think the above question is important to all new seekers.  I do not claim absoluteness to what I have actually been with, but it is my best model at the moment.

1. The Godhead at the end of our prior Universe implanted a God-Seed into this Universe.  This God-Seed provides the impetus for explaining why humanity needs to interact with a Higher Being.  The God-Seed compels mankind to create a conjoint mental-emotional Sacred Image(s) so to be able to communicate and experience the God-Seed in the language of a particular culture, place, and time.

This is the meaning of the phrase ‘created in our own image’ of Genesis.  Which means simply that mankind has the ability to create as did the Elohim–via mind.  God created man so man could creatively birth the various Sacred Images of the Most Holy.

The dream world, or virtual reality, which never leaves us, except perhaps in deep sleep, is generated by self-conscious creatures.  It is the our ‘ego personalities’ dwell within.  This is why the physical world exists.  The creature is necessary to create our World Images, our Oneirion World, Jung’s Collective, the Astral, and so on.

2.  Though, the nature of our mind is to give credence solely to the psycho-social model taught to us by our elders, every model is imperfect and at most partially accurate.

3.  The stories contained within sacred literature are not verbatim histories.  Rather, they are cultural narratives explaining the ‘why and how of human life.’  The most fitting term for the myriad of written theologies, the Iliad and Odyssey,  Hesiod tales, the Pentateuch, the Bhagavad Gita, the Rig-Veda, Gilgamesh, and even the New Testament is Sacred Parable.

Underlying most Sacred Parables is a chain of historical events which serve as the basis of the intended parable.  But, each story teller adds much fictional materials to said history so to make the complete story compatible with his or her personal understanding.  A very good example is the inconsistency seen the the three Synoptic and John’s Gospel (check it out if you doubt).

Sacred Parables are meant to teach and impart to the listener and reader, a more sublime message concerning the relationship between a personal deity and oneself.  I do note that some persons seem to be neurologically constructed so to prefer a personal relationship without providing any attributes to their Sacred Image, other than existing.  The Cosmic Mind is a pertinent example.

4.  The reason the world cannot be a peace is because each group feels threatened by outside Sacred Parables, as they do not understand that their Parable is not the actuality.

5.  As an Enlightened Being continues to exist within the physical and Oneirion, he or she is bound still by the constraints of the existing worlds, physical and psychological.  To the best of my personal knowledge, our Universe is a closed system except for the briefest moment when the old one deflates and the new one inflates.

An Enlightened Being understands the above.  Moreover, he or she has seen the truth and the folly of all Sacred Parables, as such are but approximations of mankind.  However, by experiencing each and every Sacred Parable the sacred individual rises to a understanding where Parables are no longer necessary. They all are paths onto the full understanding of each moment of universal time.

6.  So in conclusion, my dears, if you are want to continue to be bound to one Sacred Parable, find the best one, for a mystic never settles for least over more.  If you want to be free, then be free by letting go of unnecessary limitations, delusions, and suffering.

Everyone seems to have trouble with the last suggestion as they think they personally own their Parable. After all, Sacred Parable should never be taken or used as sticks and stones to break another’s bones.

Ciao, Michael

Mine Own Husband

I have decided to return to my official posting for the ‘Way of the Gallant Heart.’  Although, even my life story between 3 to 5 yo applies to this Path of Unconditional Love.  So I shall start with poetry.  Poetry should always be read out loud so to enjoy the prosody which greatly affects the higher emotions.

This prose poem is written, as if I were the wife, for such a wife is the greatest gift the Holy Family could give to any man of Spirit.

Mine Own Husband

The morning sun was, but one width above the horizon, when I awoke. I reached across the bed to touch my beloved husband, as I do each day when I first awaken. Why? I think, I do such, so to reassure me that our marital life has not been, but a dream, no more than a figment of my heart and mind.

Reassured once again, I find that over the night our love has deepened and matured, but still I perceive no bottom to this wondrous well. I love you husband more today than yesterday and I shall love and care for you forevermore.

I arise and go to my mirror so to brush the tangles from my hair. As I brush, I gaze sleepily into my three mirrors, aligned in a row. First, I see my sleepy body. Soon, my image fades into a fog in the central mirror, and in the left mirror, I see myself as a maid once again, as the maid I was when first I fell in love with you, darling husband.

Soon, your image appears in the right mirror before my eyes, my precious lover. I see you, as the young man who brought me wild flowers gathered from the forest. The young man who spoke to me in words written surely by an angel. The young man, his eyes burning with an unearthly fire, such fire penetrating far into my soul. This fire so tender, so warm, and so full of true love. I knew then, husband, that you were my polar half, split away from me in times long past.

Soon these images merge into the central mirror so to produce a great light and I know I am only yours and have always been so.

Most days, I go prepare some breakfast, but today I jump on top of you and tell you to make love to me for I desire to be without boundaries. . . . . . .

Note on the Ant Who Bragged Too Much

Greetings, dear friends.  I wish everyone well.

A dear friend of mine sent me a note with a totally different metaphor for my little fable.  She interpreted it as a political fable descrying the fate of clever persons living within a totalitarian government, be it monarchy, oligarchy, or dictatorship.  Quite clever, indeed.

But, there is an important lesson herein, as to the danger of words and stories in writing.  When we read a fable or article, it is our nature to impose upon the words our personal understanding of life, as to conclude the intentions of the author.  Much of the time, this is OK as we live within a common culture.  But, sometimes it is very dangerous for someones words may be slanted so to support an aggression against others.

So let us be careful.

Just a comment.

The Ant Who Bragged To Much

The Ant Who Bragged To Much

Once there was a very clever, but not very wise ant. She was just a regular ant, but carried on, as if she was the Royal Queen. Rather than working for the good of the collective, she continually complained that the worker and soldier ants did not need to be ruled by a Queen Ant. A democracy were every ant is equal is far superior to a monarchy. After all, any ant could become a Queen under the proper hormonal exposure.

The Royal Queen was quite tolerant with her worker ants, but eventually she realized that this particular ant was not useful to the nest. So she summoned the clever ant to her throne room for a discussion. The ant was quite pleased that the Queen had noticed her and asked for a meeting. So the ant prepared a long list of what the Queen and her advisors should do to establish a democracy.

On the day of the meeting with the Queen, the worker ant prepared herself so to be as presentable as possible. She even visited the ant nursery so to have the proper pheromones.

The clever ant was lead into the throne room by a soldier ant. She bowed respectfully and began telling the Queen of her grand plan. The Queen listened quietly and when the clever ant was finished said, “What a good plan, clever ant, I think you need to discuss it with Holy Grasshopper so to find out what the priests think. So go ask and return to me with their suggestion.”

The clever ant, thinking she had won the battle, did as she was told. She found the Holy Grasshopper and was ushered into her Presence. The clever ant relied the Queen’s Message to the Holy Grasshopper. When, the clever ant was finished, the Holy Grasshopper ate her.

She told her assistant to thank the Queen for sending such a clever ant to her with a message. “You were right to send this ant to me, my Dear. She is not so clever after all. She does not mean well, but only wants to disrupt.

This Lesson has to do with understanding and respecting the spiritual hierarchy.

Mystical Dates of Jesus’ Birth and Transition (Part 2)

Mystical Dates of Jesus’ Birth and Transition (Part 2)

05/18/18

In both Occidental and Indo-Aryan metaphysics the most auspice time of the year to be born is just after the Winter Solstice (Dec 21 – 23). For this is the day which has the shortest duration of daylight hours. The daylight portion of each day increases gradually until it reaches the Summer Solstice (June 20-22) , which is the longest and most intensely solar day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

As the Sun Cycle was of extreme importance to the ancients, they considered ones birth auspicious if it occurred shortly after the Winter Solstice, but before the Summer Solstice. For during this time the Rays of the Sun are growing stronger and stronger. Analogously, the Divine Effulgence followed the material intensity of the Sun, as Image or as god.

As the moon was often seen as the mate or companion of the Sun, or was considered as a the Night Time Sun, the auspicious time of birth would be during the new moon, or the period of time when the waning crescent is not visible with the naked eye and before the waxing crescent is identifiable. This period is somewhat variable, but is normally between 32 to 42 hours. For the new moon corresponds spiritually to the Winter Solstice.

Therefore, birth between the new moon and the full moon is most favorable.

Contrarily, being born after the new moon begins to wane and after Summer Solstice was considered most unfavorable.

Therefore, to be metaphysically proper, Jesus would have to have been born close to the new moon and after the onset of Winter Solstice. Moreover, the scriptures suggest that when he was crucified he was around 34 years old and born during the reign of Herod the Great.

Using this information, the most reasonable date is discovered by looking for years in which a new moon occurred close to Winter Solstice approximately 34 years before his physical transition. Studying moon phase calendars the new moon, we have two choices: [1] 17:58 hr on December 26, 1 BCE or 07:28 hr on December 21, 6 BCE. Winter Solstice occurred on December 22 at 11:17 hr in 1 BCE and at 18:15 hr on December 23, 6 BCE. King Herod died between 4 – 1 BCE.

Based upon Matthew and Luke, my personal preference is that Jesus was born on December 27, 1 BCE at sunrise which occurred around 0700 hr in Bethlehem. This satisfies all metaphysical restraints, after Winter Solstice, at the new moon, and at sunrise.

But, if we exclude any reference to Herod, which I think is a fabricated story where Herod = Pharaoh and Jesus = Moses, I think his birth at sunrise on December 23, 6 BCE  is also possible. No one knows Jesus’ age at Crucifixion.

The actual year is not so important, but being born after the new moon and Winter Solstice is most important in my eyes, if Jesus was the human vehicle to hold the Christ Consciousness and Heart.  For such birth times are often mentioned for Divine children.

Mystical Dates of Jesus’ Birth and Transition (Part I)

Mystical Dates of Jesus’ Birth and Transition (Part I

For those knowledgeable in the critical importance of solar and lunar cycles, only certain dates are available for the birth, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. Moreover, if Jesus is the Anointed One discussed in the OT, the Son of Man and Son of God living in the NT, or even another incarnation of the Divine into the lower world (Krishna), the necessity of the dates I shall provide are not frivolous calculation. Let me explain.

That Jesus was crucified on Friday, April 3, 33 CE, is well accepted in scholarly circles. First, the 14th day of Nissan, the first day of Passover, commenced in the early twilight hours of Thursday, April 2nd, concluding at about the same time on Friday, April 3rd . The Jewish calender starts its day in the evening, rather than at midnight per the Gregorian calendar. Genesis 1:5 “And it was evening and it was morning, one day.”

For Passover to begin, the moon must be at its fullest close to the Vernal Equinox In 33 CE, the Jewish astronomers would have said that the full moon was on the evening of April 2nd which is the beginning of Nissan 14.

The first day of Passover is called Pesach, the Passover Sacrifice of the Lamb. As Jesus is symbolized as the Paschal Lamb of God, he must have been sacrificed (crucified) on April 3rd, as the Passover Lambs were brought to the Temple to be sacrificed at 0900 hr and 1500 hr and taken home by the families to eat after sunset on the 15th day of Nissan at the Passover Seder.

Such date corresponds to the date of the full moon on April 3, 33 CE, so Jesus passed through transition during the peak of the full moon which astronomically occurred at 14:52, or about 1500 hr. In other words, he left the physical realm at his most Holy and Greatest Power.

Traditionally, Jesus was on the cross between the 6th to 9th hour of light (1200 – 1500 hr). John 19:13-15 NIV 13 When Pilate heard this, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judge’s seat at a place known as the Stone Pavement (which in Aramaic is Gabbatha). 14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon. “Here is your king,” Pilate said to the Jews. 15 But they shouted, “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!” “Shall I crucify your king?” Pilate asked. “We have no king but Caesar,” the chief priests answered.

Based upon the necessity of having the final events of Jesus’ life agree with Sacred Time, Jesus did not celebrate Jewish Seder with the disciples, as told in the Synoptic Gospels. It must have occurred on Thursday night, the day he was arrested late in the early morning of 15 Nissan, as related by John. John 13:1-3 NIV 1 It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; John 19:31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath (Seder).  Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.

Additional scriptural and astronomical support is recorded as a lunar eclipsed occurred in early twilight hours of the 3rd which would have been clearly visible in Jerusalem. I am convinced that Mark was mistaken when he claimed a solar eclipse occurring at noon. Solar eclipses do not last very long and non are noted astronomically. A blood red lunar eclipse just after Jesus was removed from the cross is much more likely, This eclipse lasted 2 hr 50 minutes and would have begun near moon rise.

Moreover, an earthquake in the Jordan Rift Valley occurred on the same day. Matthew NIV 27:54 Now when the centurion, and those who were with him watching Jesus, saw the earthquake and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly, this was the Son of God!”

Such agreement between the reported events surrounding the Crucifixion and the Sacred Calender and Clock is interesting and its significance needs to be considered by all.

Tomorrow, I will date his birth.

Proper Suffering is the Highest Action

Proper Suffering is the Highest Action

5/16/18

I was recently asked a question, as to the psychospiritual  value of different kinds of kindness relative to each other. I thought about this and now provide my personal answer.

One single, tiny, unselfish physical act for the benefit of another person is worth more than all the friendly and great words of sympathy or hope. Sympathetic and kindly words are of much great usefulness than silent thoughts towards a person in distress. Clearly, this series of usefulness is predicated on the efforts the author of the action decides to apply. People in distress are not ignorant.

However, one simple act of self-sacrifice means so much more to a suffering person, for intentional self-sacrifice requires not only a higher understanding of the situation of the other, but a heart that knows that our neighbor is no less important than ourselves. For self-sacrifice for another always involves voluntary suffering for the author. Such suffering is much different that the suffering caused by natural catastrophes and bad-luck. The intentional assumption of the suffering of another, or of the world at whole, is what I call ‘suffering necessary for all true seekers of Light, Life, and Love.’

Suffering for another opens our minds to new possibilities for aid, an improved understanding of the difficulty of human life, a stronger bond between persons, and opens a wider channel to the God of your heart and realization so to purify and improve us. Such suffering helps us learn to love others as they are connected to us on a deeper level.

The parable of Christ being crucified and dying on the cross is the best example I know to show that suffering and self-sacrifice is the narrow road, the Way, ending at the gates of the Kingdom within.
