The Bible is Really 2 Books (Child & Adult)

The Bible is Really 2 Books (Child & Adult)

The Bible is really two books in one. One is the surface layer stories and the second is a mental map to a pure understanding that brings you peace of mind. The only problem is that one book is so easily seen that the other is lost because it takes a foundation to understand how it works.

The Bible is constantly referring to these two truths within it as a Child and a Man. The reference to a “Man” however has little to do with being male but rather it’s about having an adult or mature understanding of deeper truths.

1Co 13:11
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

When you can learn to see past the stories at face value you can begin to see that they are really a series of stories designed to map out a path for you to follow to gain a higher understanding.

Look at these examples below to see how these two books create a parallel of worlds. One is physical story of people and places (Child view) and the other is a mental diagram of truth (Adult).

Bible Differences:
Child (Face Value) vs. Adult (Mental Insights)

City/Kingdom (Child View):
A Governing Cast System

City/Kingdom (Adult View):
A Supposition of Truth & Supporting Ideologies

Nations (Child View):
Nationalities & Contesting Territories

Nations (Adult View):
States of Mind & Overlapping Spheres of Influence

These two worlds of influence overlay each other on the pages of the Bible but they are seldom realized because we have all been taught to take the stories as being solely literal and without deeper meaning. Unfortunately this view has hindered the truth from being discovered and has left most Christian and Jewish religions in the dark because they only read the “Child” version of what is really being said. This leaves the greatest truth undiscovered and hinders the help it offers to humanity.

Method of loci

Once you learn to see the Bible as an instruction manual of enlightening truths you will begin to read it very differently. But you have to understand the foundation truths it’s built up on. Now as we discussed in the earlier posts that you are really the World of Creation that is being transformed from chaos into order but it’s not so easy to see how these dynamics in the Bible work.

The first trick is to understand that this is all about building up a construct of many truths that assemble into a greater whole. This world of the mind is being constructed in a linear fashion that starts with lineage of ideals depicted as the genealogy and line of Adam. Adam is the first clear concept that has been awakened from chaos and constructed from the dust into a golem of clay that is then molded like clay into the Creators image. This means that through truth our thoughts are molded into that of the understanding of God. So as God masters your outer world you imitate Him inside you through reasoning and gain Christ (Anointed authority of the Mind) within.

Col 1:27
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
1Co 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Now this is not about piety, but truth. Piety to religious beliefs may sound like the right path but in reality piety will often lead you astray from the path of truth and it often gets you stuck in a false belief system that traps you in an unrealistic reality. Truth is a balance of ideals that keeps one centered in truth. We will look deeper into the ideals of truth later but for now let’s focus on the progressive process being detailed in the Holy Scriptures.

Ecc 7:16
Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
Ecc 7:17
Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?

Firstly, let’s imagine for a moment that the temples of the Bible are really symbolic for the construction of a perfect understanding in the mind. We’re going to call this building process of the construct of truth your “Mind Palace

For thousands of years the Ancient Greeks and Romans used a method called the “Method of loci”. This is a method of memory enhancement which uses visualization to organize and recall information. The Method of Loci often uses a metal journey through a place, a story, or a structure to recall a complex series of information. So imagine then that all the stories in the Bible are there to help you organize and recall a complex series of instructions and information. This process then lays out a foundation that you then build upon in your mind with many building blocks of truth.

For this reason Christ identifies Himself as both a physical and spiritual temple.

Mar 14:58
We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

The temple of the mind starts with understandings gained by the physical world that need to be reordered to see the truth hidden in all things and thus the physical Christ which is in the line of Adam (The clay man: Son of Man) is built up into a spiritual understanding of greater truths (Spiritual man: Son of God).

Spiritual is Mental

It might help to realize that the word “spiritual” is not about relating to religious values but it’s rather relating to the mental processes that can’t be touched. We often relate it to feelings of the heart but as you know the heart does not have feelings. It is only a symbolic location for an aspect of consciousness that can be felt. The feeling you get however is an electrical and chemical response to certain understandings.

If you feel happy it is likely because you feel you have something correct, if you are sad it is likely because you feel you got something wrong, but it often feels better to romance the belief that the heart generates feelings. But what the Bible is referring to with terms of “spirituality” is that it is the process consciousness and its pursuits of truth. When you eschew the physical and pursuit the spiritual you are giving up an old understanding gained by the physical world and gaining a new higher sense of priorities and insights within the mind’s palace.

In Summary

The Temple of God is built and torn down many times in the Bible. This is because it is the process in which your understanding grows from a child into an adult. You gain new insights that replace old insights but as you progress you often have to remove old temples to build new ones. This is much like the image of the Hindu god Kali, the goddess of death & destruction, in which old things must die to make way for the new.

So it is only when you can let go of the old man that a new man is born within. You let go of the old Adam to create the new Adam. Adam simply means man. This is not the person but the persona of truth that has grown through a lineage or line of many truths that tell a story so that you can grow from chaos to order, from dark to light, from ignorant to enlightened, from death to life.

So gain the eternal light and life of truth by letting Christ (Anointed authority of the Mind: Truth) reside within you. Build it up, tear it down and build it again.

Mat 21:42
Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Luk 9:23
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

With the insights you have just learned read the passages above and below and see if this lesson helped you to see more clearly the truths that it reveals.

Eph 4:20
But ye have not so learned Christ;
Eph 4:21
If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
Eph 4:22
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
Eph 4:23
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
Eph 4:23
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

From Adam to Adam, Alpha to Omega

From Adam to Adam, Alpha to Omega

Changing Your Biblical Perception

Ever notice how certain parts of language work? Every idea seems to be compared to something physical. We “consume” knowledge and “chew it over” to ponder it, or we “run them over” in our mind. We “value” ideas by their worth, hence we use words like “value” as if ideas are equal to money. In fact there is little mentally that we don’t compare to some physical phenomena. Why? Maybe it’s because ideas are hard to quantify without a real world experience to describe them. And maybe it’s because we learn by our observations of the physical world and so we think in what we see.

The mind works in imagery and so we dream. Conscious thoughts are the invisible filtered mind at work that is reasoning things out. These thoughts are still based upon physical phenomena at their root, but since the conscious mind is more astute and the thoughts are more complex than the subconscious mind, it doesn’t need to rely on the root imagery that the thoughts were originally made from. But dreams are the unfiltered thoughts of the subconscious mind that are much less complex and rely heavily upon the root images to reason things out. In fact dreams are so real that, at times, it’s hard to tell the difference from a dream and reality.

This language of the mind that reasons with images is the core principal for reading the hidden aspects of the Bible. Once you understand the concept and how to interpret what it’s really saying it will transform you from the observer of the stories to the participant of their realities.

Remember the entire Bible is using allegories and parables to teach you deeper truths. The stories at face value are not the key. It’s the language of tongues you need to know to understand what’s really being said. This is not the gibberish you hear in some religious circles; this is an actual language of ideas as symbols. These symbols are using real life objects to paint deeper impactful concepts to help you heal from a life of ignorant thoughts.

The Life of an Idea as a Person

Consider the life of a thought as an example. The life of an idea emulates the life of a person perfectly.

Conception:

Like a person the life of an idea starts with a birth. We call this birthing process “conception” because it compares to the birth of a child.

Growth:

Once an idea is conceived it quickly grows from an adolescent concept unto a fully grown and mature ideal. For this matter you see very little mention of children going through an adolescent period in the Bible. The stories may start with a conception, but they generally skip or speed past adolescence and then hurry on to maturity.

Interactions:

Just like people ideas mingle with other ideas. They interact by the mind reasoning through how one thing relates to another. In this way a concept may determine its function better.

Adventures:

All ideas need to be tested to find their worth. They fight with competing principals, or they seek greater understanding. They find their truth and worth through their endeavors. In other words they find their value like a young man at the time would seek his fortune.

Relationships:

As a concept finds its value it then relates to itself on how this ideal should be used and so it marries or joins to the wisdom of self that is depicted as a woman in the Bible.

Parenting:

As an idea is applied to the self an understanding is formed and it gives birth to the next concept that will occupy the mind of the thinker. And thus a birth is conceived that will start the next step in the growth process of understanding. So each idea is now the parent of a new idea that was birthed by the process.

Death:

Once an idea has been fully realized and understood it reaches the end of its discovery process. We often use the term of “we laid that idea to rest” because we no longer need to think about something and so that concept dies. But once the idea has ceased the memory remains and so it becomes entombed in a shrine of the mind as a memorial (sepulchure: to remember). So all dead and buried people in the Bible are really fully understood ideals.

Afterlife:

The final judgment is the weighing out of the merit of each truth to see if it is worthy of the status as a higher ideal that can be elevated to a higher state of reasoning like an angel to guide other concepts, or is it heavy and sent down to the grave of darkness where it is found to be less than worthy of elevation. Light verses dark. A greater understanding verses a common knowledge. Something useful or simply just information.

Ghosts:

If an idea is not laid to rest as fully understood it can haunt your mind as an unresolved idea, or as a spirit. Often these spirits are lost at sea because the water is the primary concept for the process of consciousness. All people symbolically lost at sea in the Bible become symbolically as fish that are seeking the light of reason. Hence Jesus calls His disciples the “fishers of men” who bring lost souls unto the light.

Summary:

The entire Bible is the story of ideals that come into being through a process of enlightenment. One idea leads to another and this brings about a lineage of many truths that stack up upon each other. All these ideas are seen in the stories as people, but hidden in their names and in their journeys is a deeper truth about your process to self-discovery. This is the primary reason that each person (personal idea) is born, grows, tries, fails and rises up again. Few ideals are perfectly understood until they complete the challenges of the testing of the mind. This testing is called the “sun” because it tests all men (ideals) through the fires of reason. Each mental day is a trial in understanding whereby truth is uncovered as being either righteous or false.

Ecc 2:20
Therefore I went about to cause my heart to despair of all the labour which I took under the sun.
Rev 10:1
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

So keep in mind as you read the Bible that each person is more than a physical person and are really a spiritual or mental process that started from the first Adam until the last Adam. Adam means man (idea), the alpha and the omega, beginning and end. From Adam to Christ. The living and spiritual man. This is all about a lineage of truth that builds up the common mind (you) from a slave of ignorance unto a god of the inner world.

1Co 15:45
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

It is only when you can master your understanding that you can relate to the one True God that masters the universe outside of you. And once you do you will then have Christ within (TRUTH, the universal mirror of God).

2Co 3:18
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

The Tree of Life is Christ. This is the family tree of truth. It’s really a process of discovery that builds you up from ignorance to enlightenment and thus the WORD of God is the Family Tree of truth that grows within you. Christ is symbolic for you gaining the ultimate understanding within you.

1Co 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Christ = Wisdom is “The Truth” and the “Tree of Life” = Truth

Isa 11:10
And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
Isa 27:6
He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.
Jer 17:8
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
Pro 11:30
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
Pro 3:18
(WISDOM) She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
Rev 2:7
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

SIN vs RIGHTEOUSNESS? RICH vs POOR?

Since the Bible is really about unlocking the mind from a bondage to sin, it might help to understand the word “SIN” that enslaves you. But to know what sin is it might also help to know its opposite called “RIGHTEOUSNESS”.

Religion tends to magnify common words to a higher standard and the original meaning gets lost to the new status of the word. But looking at the basic meaning will help clarify its purpose for unlocking the prison of the mind. So let’s take away all the pretense that religion has heaped up upon these words and look at them with new eyes.

Righteousness: Tsĕdaqah: צְדָקָה: justice, righteousness (prosperity): To be correct

Firstly the word RIGHTEOUSNESS simply means to be CORRECT. That’s it. It now means something more along the lines of being morally ethical, but it originally started out meaning to be correct.

Sin: chata’: חָטָא: to err, to miss the mark: To make a mistake

Today the word means an offense against religious or moral law (God’s law), but that’s not what the word originally meant. It simply means that you didn’t get it right! It means you somehow made a mistake. But just because you missed the mark it doesn’t mean that this is the end. In fact it is often the best starting point to understand what is correct.

Remember this is about your mind, and your mind is always trying to get things right. So falling short of perfection isn’t the end of the world. Its simply how we learn to navigate life’s more complicated mysteries. Chances are that you will make a lot of wrong turns before you make the right one. Sometimes you just keep trying till you get it right.

Most people don’t go out of their way to try to “Sin”. Most people aren’t innately evil either. They just make a lot of mistakes that unfortunately often come with consequences and guilt. So why then do we sin? Well, imagine if you were a rat placed into a maze and you had to find your way out or you would starve. In this case you would most likely make a lot of wrong turns before you found the way out of the difficult situation. No one gets it right the first time, especially if they can’t smell the proverbial cheese of what you seek. But once you have navigated a course that hasn’t changed you would most likely get it correct every time afterwards and thus you would then “walk the path of righteousness”. This then becomes the path of experience because experience is the key to understanding. But until you find the right path you will constantly fall into the path of sin. In other wards, you simply turned the wrong way because you didn’t know any better.

So why then do some people seem to make the same mistakes over and over? Perhaps it’s because they treat each new maze of problems in the exact same way as an old problem and don’t realize that each new situation (no matter how familiar it may seem) doesn’t have the same solution as other puzzles they have been in before. It’s often laziness that gets us into the most trouble because it takes effort to learn or pay attention to new things, so we often resort to what we know, even if we know they’re wrong. It’s often a case of it’s “close enough” and if “close enough” doesn’t get us there then we find ourselves, once again, missing the mark and find ourselves lost and blinded in the path of sin.

The Money Machine

Most people seem to miss a simple fact that the human brain is an organic calculating machine. We are literally living computers of a sort. Think about it, we are programmable, we run on a power supply, need to reboot to clear random access memories and we think only in percentages. To some this may sound a little insane but there is nothing you won’t do without first figuring out how much time and energy you will need to accomplish a task. You then consider the task against which outcome will bring you the best return for your investment. It’s all about the numbers.

Your mind works in a code of numbers. Everything thought is factored in a kind of currency. You use percentages of time, effort and energy and spend them to gain something in return. This is why the entire Bible follows a system of currency. Currency is truth by Biblical standards. The more riches you have the more information you possess. The less riches you have the more you desire to have some.

2Ch 9:22
And king Solomon passed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom.
Isa 45:3
And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
Rom 11:33
O the depth of the riches
both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

In the world of the mind food and money are now about to have a crossover, because to the mind it doesn’t know how to separate its metaphors. You see food is a means of acquiring what the system needs. “Consumerism” is a staple in modern times as well as a sign of wealth. We all love to acquire new things, but why? When we get something new we gain an intimate knowledge of the thing and then we are richer for all of our possessions. This is a case of life emulating art in that the metaphor for consuming stuff is the same as consuming information as riches. The more things you know the richer you are in mental currency.

Lazarus and the Rich Man

Let’s take a look at the examples of Lazarus and the Rich man to understand this crossover better. The poor man has nothing to eat and has no possessions, and the rich man has everything, but who is really most blessed?


Luke 16:19-31

19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that [would come] from thence.
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

In this case the RICH man here is really your own belief system that is bloated with the pride of knowledge. It’s not that knowledge is bad, it that you think that you have everything all figured out and feel you are doing great. “I got this. I don’t need nuthin’“. But the beggar in the story is the ignorant part of yourself that is, in reality, the student that seeks to understand the truth, thus his name is illustrated as Lazarus.

Lazarus: ‘El`azar: אֶלְעָזָר: the support or help of God: Seeking help to gain higher understanding

Lazarus means the help of God, but the God of the inner world is our ideology of the perfect understanding. So then it is your higher understanding that seeks to know the truth in all things. So the gate in which the poor man lays is a means of transitioning from one state of understanding unto another understanding. But he is lame and can make no proper choices since your legs are the means of taking steps towards enlightenment. Without legs to stand on you cannot make an effort to understand and thus the student within is not faring well and is starving to know what is true, and thus you are vexed by the dilemma of impure thoughts that are symbolized as the dogs that lap at his wounds.

Dog: Kyōn: κύων: metaph. a man of impure mind, an impudent man

Now notice that the rich man is buried when he dies but the poor man is lifted up. This is the balancing of ideals as being a higher or lower concept. In this case pride is the rich man who is too full of self to find the elevation of understanding. It’s a case of the glass being too full to accept any new ideas. The rich man is then tormented by a thirst for truth that is symbolized as water. The rich man is also tormented by the flames of truth that test the mind to see if an ideal is pure or false. All men in the Bible are concepts that face a cycle of conception, testing and resolution that is symbolized as their death, where an idea is then “laid to rest” and entombed in the minds catacombs where it becomes as a memory.

So now we see that the rich man had once had a life of comfort but the poor man suffered. This is because our pride makes us feel special and we revel in our own greatness of understanding, and so the student within suffers to learn (Consume truth) but it can’t because all the mind’s resources are dedicated to feeding its own inflated ego and so it dies from a lack of intellectual nourishment.

The rich man then asks for Lazarus to help him but an expanse is set between them. This is because the two ideals of being prideful and ignorant cannot reside together in a balanced mind. You are either eager to learn or you are stagnant in an inflated self-pride. How then can the rich man find salvation for the self-imposed prison that this ideal has created for itself?

The rich man then asks Abraham to have the “Help of God” (Lazarus) go to his father’s house and teach his 5 brothers. As every man is an ideal, a father is then a progenitor of said ideals. In other words, each idea comes from somewhere, and so it comes from a foundation of truth that was previously laid out. So in this case the man is a concept that is related to other similar ideals (Brothers) that sprang forth from a similar foundational concept (Father). But the rich man is denied by Abraham. Why is Abraham the judge here and not God Himself? This is because we are still dealing with people being conceptions of the minds inner world. In this case then Abraham is the leading concept that decides the fate of another ideal. Abraham roughly means “Father of a multitude” but the truth of his name is a little more complicated than that. He was originally Abram which means “Exalted father” though this is not the full translation either. The name really means “Elevated father” (In other words it’s lifted up) and as you just learned that a father is a foundational idea, and so Abram is an elevated truth that has brought forth a nation of many solid truths, and thus he is the father of many as a Foundational Higher Principal that is now judging over a failed concept. It’s a dead concept and not a living truth.

Abraham: ‘Abram: אַבְרָם: exalted father: elevated father: The Foundation of Higher Principals

The failed concept is now dealing with its own faults and wishes to save any other related faulty beliefs from being scrutinized the same as it is. “Not everything I believe is wrong, is it?” you ask yourself. To which Moses is referred to as a means of guidance.

Moses: Mōÿsēs: Μωϋσῆς: drawing out: Seeking truth

The name of Moses means to “Draw out”. You may also know this as a “calling” to “draw out” or to discover the truth, since he was drawn from the water. Water is always symbolic of truth. You can consider water as being a flow of consciousness, and thus truth is drawn (Moses) from a river or a channeling of consciousness.

So then the rich man is really a faulty ideal that you have of “I know it already”, and this ideal caused your progress to suffer and it made you ignorant and sickly in spirit (In other words, it made you mentally deficient). But the truth in the end is that to endeavor to know is tried and found innocent of being faulty and is lifted up to a higher state of understanding. These truths are not buried in tombs and forgotten like failed ideals but are lifted up to a higher state of understanding and become living truths in which elevate other ideals that come along. These ideals become guides like Abraham and Moses, or the poor man named Lazarus that teaches us to seek truth rather than to rely on our own understanding. In other words, always be hungry to gain understanding and don’t become too full of yourself for believing that you already knowing the answer. Everything new is always new even if it seems like something you knew from before. You must hunger to understand or you too will find you have reached a “dead” end.

So the story of Lazarus and the Rich Man ends with a warning that comes to mean something like this.

“Bad ideals do not recognize they are bad even in comparison to ideals that were once thought to be bad but in reality were later discovered to be true.”

Basically the Rich man and his brother are all faulty concepts that can’t see the truth in what they are so they can not recognize the truth even if it rose from the darkness of the grave of ignorance into the light of reason as an enlightened truth. (I guess you could say “Stupid don’t know it’s stupid no matter how it’s pointed out”)

In Summary:

Not everything in the Bible is as it seems. It’s all really about creating and residing in state of higher understanding. We will revisit many of these concepts again later. We will also look into the metaphor of riches as a measure of understanding and food as a means of gaining experience through consuming truth. The main point of this post however was to teach that just as not everything is as it seems, so too is the image of sin and righteousness. They are not opposing beliefs but rather they are the challenge of finding the truth. We do however try to avoid the failings of sin because they can become a trap that is hard to escape from once you fall into it. It trips you up more often than not and ensnares you to a series of bad concepts that lead you astray from the correctness of thought. In other words, you are lead from the light of reason to follow bad ideals that keep you a slave to them. Once you stay rich in your beliefs you fail to see the truth and grow blind to the suffering you create to others and to yourself. A part of you starves each time you get puffed up in your pride of belief, and you will eventually suffer from this mistake by creating a chasm between where you are and the truth that eludes you. And believe me it is only truth that can save you from a hell of your own making.

Jhn 8:32
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Do not suffer trapped in a place of faulty beliefs by thinking you have it all figured out. It is only when you realize that you are not perfect that you can begin to seek the answers you need and then it will be your sins that made way for you to discover righteousness as the truth in everything.

How to Read the Hidden Bible- KEY Legend

Everything in the Bible is really about you, because YOU are the World of Creation.

Ancient Greek for World

Cosmos (Kosmos: κόσμος): an apt and harmonious arrangement or constitution, order, or governing body: World, Universe

Ancient Greek for Soul

Soul: Psyche: ψυχή: The totality of elements forming the mind (the id, ego, and superego including both conscious and unconscious components)

The Bible is written like a mirror of greater and smaller truths that continually reflect back upon themselves. This inner world of the psyche (Soul) is made up of elements of truth that were gathered and crafted by the physical world around you, and as such the mind’s landscape uses similar concepts when it reasons things out. For this reason we dream in images of people, places, and things.

Gen 40:8
And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.

The entire Bible is made up of this vocabulary of dream related imagery, and since dreams are simply unfiltered thoughts they are built of the unconscious imagery of the world of reason. Ironically, once you understand how the mind works; dreams begin to make more sense.

Num 12:6
And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

Remember, the entire Bible works off of allegories and parables and everything written in it is really detailing a story of mental development that eliminates the frustration of ignorance and heals the mind with clarity. This theme is the process of bringing light to a dark world.

Jhn 1:9
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

This self-reflecting process of reason uses the entire mental landscape to determine different elements of truth. There is a constant shifting from above to below (and vice versa) using an entire macro- microcosmic universe of comparatives.

Gen 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Mat 6:10
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

In this mental world people are one of the primary components and take on the role of a concept, and a kingdoms become a congregation of many of these supporting ideas and thus create a state of awareness. In this world of the mind the king of a kingdom is really the leading concept that dominates a particular state of understanding. So, in the Bible a kingdom is really a state of being, or the extent of one specific understanding.

The whole Bible is written like this. It’s like a code of sorts, and if you don’t have the keys to unlocking what each element of the inner world means, everything will get mottled and confused and all you will see is the stories at face value and not see the hidden truth that’s detailed within them.

Mat 16:19
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

It is also important to note that every aspect of these keys is broken into 3 major elements of understanding. It’s like looking at a mirror where there are 3 attributes present at any given time. Though typically we only think of there being 2:

  • A physical object.
  • A reflection of that object.

However in a spiritual mirror there are 3 images that stack upon each other:

  • Ideal Self
  • True Self
  • Natural Self

We know these reflections also as the:

  • Mind
  • Spirit
  • Body

But as this is not a physical mirror all elements are spiritual in nature. This means that everything is reflecting on different attributes of your higher self that is competing against your lower and more natural tendencies. Sigmund Freud called these elements the:

  • Super ego
  • Ego
  • Id

The entire landscape of the inner world is built up of similar elements that reflect upon these 3 aspects of self. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Mountain or a Kingdom, they are both governing principals of the higher self. A Father, a King and the Sky are also representative for your higher elevation of understandings, but they will have subtle differences to their meaning. It may seem a little complicated at first, but this is, after all, learning another language (The language of tongues).

1Co 14:6
Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?

Give it some time and try it out. Learn these KEYS and use the supplied color chart to see how each element of inner truth applies to the: ideal self, true self and natural self. We will then use these KEYs for all our lessons to come.

From Genesis to Revelation

Did you know these two books; Genesis and Revelation are directly related?

One is the start of a journey and the other is its completion. If you think I am talking about it being the journey of the world then you’d be right… and wrong. It’s probably not the world as you may picture it, because the world is really YOU.

Cosmos (Kosmos: κόσμος) is the word used in the Bible to describe the WORLD by the ancient Greeks. It is used today to describe the entire known universe because it really means the divine order in all things.

Cosmos (Kosmos: κόσμος): an apt and harmonious arrangement or constitution, order, or governing body: World, Universe

In everything is an order, be it a chaotic one or a structured one. In this case the “world” that is mentioned in the Bible is one of both chaos, and order. The Bible starts with mentioning a world that has no “Form”. This is a lack of true order that has no set structure. This is your lack of discipline and a presence of disarray in your mental reasoning. This inner world is also “Void” of understanding and therefore it is unsatisfied and empty. And most importantly the inner man is without understanding and lives in a cloud of “Darkness” called ignorance.

Gen 1:2
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

The secret truth that most people miss while reading the Holy Scriptures is that the entire Bible is really about themselves because they are focusing on the stories at face value and missing their symbolic context.

The Bible starts with laying out a foundation that spans the entire book, but it is dismissed as a tale of the Creation origin story of the planet Earth. This however, may or may not be the truth but there is no way to know because no one living was ever there. We just accept this as truthful because the Bible tells us this is how it all started. But the reality of the story is not the focus of this lesson. The main focus is on what this means to you as a person living today.

People suffer with faulty ideals that plague their entire lives. As humans we won’t do anything without considering it on some level first, and if it doesn’t match up to our personal guidelines we will not do it. Everything we do is governed by rules that are set in place by our own belief system. But if that belief system is without proper understanding the system is ruled by a chaos that constantly causes problems to itself and others. You may have heard it said that “Knowledge is power” and that’s true, because a lack of understanding leads to a chaos that is easy to exploit and you may quickly find yourself in a dangerous or uncomfortable situation.

7 “Days”

The first part of the Book of Genesis is actually detailing a 7 step process that is meant as a basses in which to create an orderly mind. Most people mistake these as 7 literal days, but the word used for a “day” is a general reference for any period of time (Be it a day, season, year, etc.). Look also at this verse in the book of Deuteronomy and you will see that a day is the same as a shoe, or rather a means of taking steps.

Deu 33:25
Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be.
Day: Yowm יוֹם: time, period (general)

It’s easy to miss the subtlety in definition because of how it is written, but it is telling you that your shoes are as days. These “days” are a period of time that is easiest to understand as a step or more importantly as a stage of development. Think of the days as steps of enlightenment or a time or period of personal growth.

Steps to God

Then this means that the first 7 days of Creation are really seven steps that help you to grow closer to God. Now in this case you are the world and you are in need of mastering yourself from following faulty ideals and thus you are becoming a reflection of the true God that rules the physical universe we all live in. As a microcosm of the macrocosm your higher reasoning takes on the role of the God of the inner world.

In most cultures we use the term MASTER to claim the role of a great teacher, but the Bible instead uses the word LORD to describe the MASTER of a home, kingdom or world. Consider the world is your mind’s abode and the higher brain is the LORD or MASTER of the house. Therefore YOUR HIGHER REASONING is the LORD or GOD of the inner world. Only with this new perspective will the Bible truly begin to reveal its greatest secrets.

Gen 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over… all the earth

To become the master (or Lord) of the inner world you must reflect the True God within by understanding as He understands. These seven easy steps in the book of Genesis are the path to gaining ultimate understanding, but there are some subtleties to understanding each “day” as a stage of development. However this post is not long enough to explain each day but we will look into these details in later posts. However the main point is to see that these same days are periods of enlightenment that are symbolically represented as other corresponding imagery.

2Co 3:18
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Revelation

Now let us take a look at the last book of the Bible that most know of as the Book of Revelation.

Revelation: The revealing of a divine or astonishing truth

A revelation is not about something to fear but something to be in awe over. It is a time of joy that most know of as the RAPTURE.

Rapture: A mystical experience in which the spirit is exalted to a knowledge of divine things

Many Christians fear this last book and I never understood why since it is about a glorious revelation of great joy. Maybe it is because it chronicles many unknown and fantastical events that stir up feelings of dread. After all people are prone to fear what they do not understand. If this is so maybe it might help to know that the final book in the Bible is the completion of those same first 7 day steps and how they bring about a lasting peace and wholeness of self.

As you read the book of Revelation you will see that EVERYTHING is illustrated with a strange series of events that are shrouded in symbolism. But what if learning to read these events was possible? Would this help take away the fear if it gave you peace of mind as a wonderful thing and not a time of woe?

You see the last book of the Bible is really the completion of the 7 fold process, or 7 step journey that was established at the beginning of the book of Genesis. You might then notice that the number 7 is a theme that runs throughout the book of Revelation.

7’s in the book of Revelation
Lampstands
Stars
Churches
Angels
Seals
Trumpets
Persons
Vials
Dooms
Hills
Heads
Horns
Etc

Each of these 7’s are symbolic for a completion of the 7 step process that removes chaos from the world. It is simply illustrating how the uplifting of the mind is manifested. Once ignorance and confusion is defeated nothing remains but a temple of pure GOLD (Truth) that’s filled with LIGHT (Enlightenment) where there are no more DAYS (Stages of development) and there is no longer any more DARKNESS (Ignorance) and GOD (Higher understanding) reigns and dwells within.

This city is the embodiment of the state of ultimate enlightenment where understanding and wholeness are found. Most know this state as Nirvana, the state of perfect “Peace” (Jerusalem)

Jerusalem = “teachings of peace”: Understanding

In Summary

We fear what we do not know and this fear is an expectation that poisons the waters of the soul. It is only when we no longer live in ignorance that light is seen in darkness. Only truth can overcome the miseries of ignorance.

The entire Bible is really a manual to overcoming the prison of the mind and only those that learn the universal truth (Cosmos) find the peace they seek. Rule the world as the god of understanding and create a new order that is no longer empty, ignorant and without structure… and then you will live in peace; with yourself, others and everything.

Why you’re reading the Bible wrong!

Most people read the Bible stories at face value and miss the amazing secret of what’s actually being said.

Take a step back from religion and do the unthinkable and consider everything you read to be a parable or allegory. Now this does not mean the stories aren’t true! It simply means that all the stories are comparative to certain deeper ideals. In fact, many parables and allegories are true but they simply have a greater spiritual truth hidden within them. Even the Bible itself points this out, but this aspect is often overlooked because it doesn’t let you know that the stories you were reading were really an allegory for a greater truth until much later on. Look at the story of Sarah and Hagar as an example. When you read this story in the Old Testament it never made mention of its true significance until thousands of years later when it was explained in the New Testament that their lives were an allegory all along.

Gal 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

Why have you never noticed this before? Because for thousands of years religions have erased it from history because it creates a freedom of thought that isn’t easy for them to control.

FREE THOUGHT

Consider words like SALVATION and SOUL without the cloud of religion. In the Greek the word SOUL is PSYCHE which means “the totality of elements forming the mind” and the word SALVATION means “liberation from ignorance or illusion”. So then without religion’s influence isn’t the “SALVATION of the SOUL” simply the “FREEDOM of the MIND from the illusion of ignorance?”
(i.e. FREE THOUGHT)

Additionally consider the name of JESUS (Iēsous, Ἰησοῦς) which essentially means Freedom (Salvation, i.e. deliverance from bondage), and is called both the “TRUTH” and the “WORD” thus making Him the embodiment of the “FREEDOM of the MIND” or “FREE THOUGHT”

TRUTH: that candour of mind which is free from affection, pretence, simulation, falsehood, deceit
WORD: λόγος lógos, log’-os; from G3004; something said (including the thought); by implication, a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extension, a computation; specially, (with the article in John) the Divine Expression (i.e. Christ)

Confusion is the greatest weakness that people suffer from each day, and this lack of understanding creates a form of self-imprisonment to faulty ideals. These misguided concepts that we guide our daily lives with usually lead us to a type of misery that can cause both a physical and emotional suffering. So then wouldn’t the cure to man’s greatest suffering be to fix the mind by creating clarity?

Babylon vs. Jerusalem

So if everything is a parable or allegory in the Bible then consider the concept of the two major opposing cities of the book of Revelation (Rev 17:5; Rev 17:18; Rev 21:2; Rev 3:12
Notice that both are allegories that are depicted as women); Babylon (that great city that holds captivity over the world), and the city of Jerusalem (the city of Salvation). The entire Bible builds up to the demise of the great city of Babylon and then ends with the establishment of a New city called Jerusalem at the very end of all the books.

Throughout the Bible the nation of Babylon has always been the biggest enemy of the peoples of Jerusalem, but why is this significant or even important? It is because a city is really an allegory to a state of mind, and each person is really an allegory for an ideal, and thus the city is also compared to a person. In this case, notice that both cities are compared to women.

Babylon the city as a woman

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Rev 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Jerusalem the city as a woman

Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new
Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Wisdom is a woman

Pro 7:4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:

If people are allegories that represent individual ideals then a city is a much larger concept that is ruled by a dominant ideal, much like a king ruling over a kingdom. Small concepts that support a greater supposition create a state of mind that dominates the mental landscape.

So, many smaller concepts that support a greater ideal create a state of mind that is established as a dominant wisdom or understanding.

So why then is wisdom a woman? Wisdom is a woman, because she is representative of a passive ideal. This is in opposition to an aggressive ideal that is represented by a man.

Masculine verses Feminine Ideals

Passive (Feminine) = receptive or to the self. It is an ideal that is applied to the self and thus an inward expression.
Aggressive (Masculine) = to assert or force from the self. It is an ideal that is applied away from the self as an unattached ideal.

We know these concepts as:

Knowledge verses Wisdom

Knowledge (Masculine) = Information
Wisdom (Feminine) = Knowing how to apply the information.

One is simply an ideal, and the other is relating to the ideal and thus you gain understanding.

A masculine ideal that marries to a feminine ideal becomes a wisdom as it is a concept applied to the self. This is the birth of understanding, thus a child of reason is created as a new concept. So the congregation of smaller concepts applied to the self is a state of mind called a city. This city or state of mind is either passive as a wisdom or aggressive as a drive or ambition (much like Israel the person and nation are both allegories of a concept and state of mind to move forward as an ambition to achieve a greater goal).

Israel is the masculine mindset of perseverance

Israel = to persist, to exert oneself, to persevere

(Trust me, this will all make sense. Now back to the two cities)

The removal of Babylon is representative of the removal of the great confusion that rules your life each day, and the establishment of a new Jerusalem is the understanding that bring freedom to the mind through the teachings of peace (Also known in most cultures as Nirvana).

Peace = completeness, soundness, wholeness, tranquility, contentment, harmony

Babylon Verses Jerusalem

Babel or Babylon = “confusion
Jerusalem = “Teachings of peace” (i.e. Understanding)

Babel or Babylon means Confusion. So wouldn’t the enemy of (Jerusalem) Peace naturally be Confusion?

So then only once Confusion is cast away is Peace truly ever established. Without confusion you dwell in a state of everlasting peace and thus the Holy Scriptures end with the establishment of a lasting state of mind known as Nirvana.

Rev 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

Everything is not as it seems

This has always been about creating “Free Thought” by eschewing confusion from the mind and gaining salvation for the soul (A Free Mind (i.e. Freedom of Thought)). Everything we just looked at all leads to that one thing; freedom from a self-imposed prison that creates fear, sadness, aggression and all other ailments that have always plagued humanity on a mental level. This is why most ailments of the Bible were believed to be caused by sin (To err in judgment). It is because everything is an allegory for higher understanding and every ailment mentioned in the Bible too are allegories: Blindness is ignorance, lameness is the inability to make clear effective choices, and leprosy is the corruption and contamination of understanding. It is only through Truth that the wholeness of Peace can be achieved.

We have all been reading the Bible wrong. There is so much more going on behind the scenes that goes left unnoticed if you don’t understand the basic concepts that the entire Bible is built up upon. This is not found in religion; remember it was hidden by religion. It is only in knowing how to see the truth that it is revealed to you. So I encourage you to follow this blog, share to help others to understand and learn how to read the greatest gift God has given man.

A Story of Consciousness

Please share!

(Passion and Patience)

There once was a man named Hunger because he was always hungry.

Hunger was courting two women. One was named Passion because she was quick to act upon her impulses and desires, and the other was named Patience because she planned ahead to gain the things that mattered to her most.

Hunger, true to his nature, asked each woman in turn, “What shall we do for food?”

To which Passion was quick to reply, “Let’s go out to the most expensive restaurant and order foods to our hearts desire and eat like kings”

To which Hunger asked, “Then what about tomorrow when all the money is gone, what then shall we do?”

Passion screamed in a whirl and a giggle, “Who cares about tomorrow? We are alive now and tomorrow may never come!”

Hunger liked the idea of eating wonderful food like a king for he was hungry after all and pondered the idea. He then asked Patience, “What shall we eat for food?”

Patience took a moment to ponder the question and then smiled coyly and said “Let us go to my garden that is filled with all the fruits of effort. Let us grow and choose and make wondrous dishes of our own creation that only we can build together.”

This idea intrigued Hunger and so he asked, “But won’t this take longer and will I not be treated like a king?”

Patience smiled and looked deep into Hunger’s eyes and said, “To me you will always be my king and together we will make our future and you’ll never be hungry again.”

Hunger then made his choice between balancing out his Passion or Patience and chose whom he most desired to bring into his home. And as time went by their son Satisfaction was conceived, who grew to become a man and one day when Hunger ceased he took over the home and lived there with his wife called Joy.

What was this story really about? Did you read it as a child or an adult?

This story is written for two minds: The child mind that only sees the story is about a man who is dating two women, and the adult mind that sees behind the veil to the truth of the anamorphic characteristics of desire.

When you read the Bible, ask yourself “Am I seeing this story through the eyes of an adolescent mind or that of a mature mind?” Because every name in the Bible has a purpose and the names are not arbitrary, nor are the titles of people or places. Everything is a hidden truth that is being read wrong by all the “children of God” whom see but do not perceive and hear but do not understand. It is only when you can see beyond the parables that you can find the truth that sets you free.

Mat 13:13
Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
Jhn 8:32
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Would you like to know how to read the truth hidden in plain sight? Or are you happy being a child without understanding and continue to miss God’s great gift?
