Wholeness Of Self

The Cosmology Of Mind And Being

Introduction


     After eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), the statement was made in the allegorical account of Genesis: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23).
Thus, the promise is that those who eat the fruit of the Tree of Life, will live forever. That the Tree of Life is something that all of mankind can gain access to, and be nourished by the Divine Manna and life-giving fruit thereof, is demonstrated in the statement in the Revelation: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" (Rev 2:7).

The problem is seen in the fact that in order to understand the spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the Words of Life, the scriptures must be read and understood within the foundational pattern of Mind as portrayed in symbols of the the Tree of Life.
And while many teachers and authorities among men portray the symbolism of the Tree of Life in many ways, the only valid portrayal is presented in the Wisdom of the teachings of Jesus and the Original Gospel.
The word Esoteric portrays Inward Knowledge -- and in reference to this body of Esoteric Knowledge that could only be revealed in the allegorical symbolism of the Gospels, the Epistle of Peter to James warns that if this Esoteric body of Knowledge was to become lost or thrown away, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error"

The scriptures were written by mystics (see An Inconvenient Truth) who composed their sacred writings to preserve a body of esoteric spiritual knowledge which was of primary importance to sincere seekers in search of Higher Truth Other than the most elementary of instruction, the scriptures have virtually no value as historical accounts -- and were never intended to be used in the manner that most modern day Jews, Christians and Muslims interpret and used them today The article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, portrays an ultra-important aspect of the Original Gospel teachings that is totally absent from the dogma of the modern Church where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community. From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.
To even suggest that one of the primary purposes of the Gospel teachings was to bring about the deepening, heightening and enlargement of human consciousness would be totally rejected by the modern faith-based believer. Why? Very simply, because The Original Gospel Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Modern Church Dogma.

It is easily proven that the whole of the New Testament was corrupted (see BibleCorruption.com ), and the most important spiritual teachings and concepts were either edited or totally removed from the Gospels.
Those outside of the original Ebionite/Nazirene core of disciples and followers of Jesus, were quick to corrupt all the copies of the scriptures that were given to them.
And this fact is confirmed to us  by Dr. F. H. Scrivener where he writes that:
"In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest". Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within 100 years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts (F.H.Scrivener, Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament).
Dean Burgon quotes Gaius (AD175-200) who speaks of the source of corruptions that survive in the early papyri:
"The Divine Scriptures these heretics have audaciously corrupted. Laying violent hands upon them, under pretense of correcting them." (Burgon, The Revision Revised, p. 323).
Eusebius (Eccleastical History), citing the second century Church Father Clement of Alexandria:
"The worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected originated within one hundred years after it was composed."   In the words of Colwell (What is the Best New Testament Text?, p.119)  "The first two centuries witnessed the creations of the large number of variations known to scholars today In the manuscripts of the New Testament most variations, I believe, were made deliberately."   G.D. Kilpatrick (Atticism and the Text of the Greek New Testament, pp 125-131):  "Deliberate changes in all text types appear to antedate A.D. 200..as distinct from errors... all categories of deliberate alteration.. are present in both groups. Tatian is the last author of make deliberate changes. The vast majority of deliberate changes were older then A.D. 200 They came into being in the period A.D. 50-200."  The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, where he warns us that: "...theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy" With regard to the condition of the Bible we presently use: The surviving Greek texts of the book of Acts are so radically different from each other, that it has been suggested that perhaps there were multiple versions written. In his book The Text of the New Testament, Dr. Vincent Taylor writes that "The manuscripts of the New Testament preserve traces of two kinds of dogmatic alterations: those which involve the elimination or alteration of what was regarded as doctrinally unacceptable or inconvenient, and those which introduce into the Scriptures proof for a favorite theological tenet or practice".

Quoting from the opening statement of The True (Unknown) Nature And Reality Of The Scriptures: If you had an original copy of the Gospels, you could use them as a catalyst to achieve an Enlightened and Anointed State of Mind -- prevailing over self, mentally and spiritually evolving to your full potential, and overcoming the division between you and your Heavenly Father. If you had an original copy of the Gospels and used them as the authors intended them to be used, at this moment as the prodigal son/daughter, you could have been Restored to the Edenic Kingdom -- and having overcome even death, you would dwell with your elder brother Jesus -- who, as the first of the prodigal sons to fulfill the Royal Law within himself, completed the Journey in TheWay before you.

 

Wholeness Of Self

The Cosmology Of Mind And Being

     What is Wholeness?  With respect to the concept of Wholeness, Jesus portrayed himself as a physician: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).
Before this verse can be understood we must first understand what it means to be Whole.
Which provokes the question: How is Wholeness achieved? Contrary to the dogma of the modern Church, if Jesus is the savior who every person needs for salvation, then Jesus himself said the Church was wrong, and those who are Whole do not need him And as a physician, Jesus did not come for the salvation of those who are Whole, but only for those who are sick and in need of a physician.
And in total opposition to Church dogma, what this also means is that at the time the historical man Jesus walked the face of the earth, there existed people who he portrayed as "whole [and] righteous" who did not need Jesus the physician Jesus openly states that his mission as a spiritual physician is not for them, because they achieved the necessary Wholeness without him.

Does everyone need Jesus as the modern Christian maintains?  While Jesus himself said that those who had achieved Wholeness did not need him as a spiritual physician -- i.e., They that are whole have no need of the physician..." -- and that with effort, all of mankind is capable of achieving a condition that Jesus portrayed as "whole [and] righteous", which means that these people who did achieve Wholeness, were not sick, and in Jesus' own words were not in need of him (Jesus) as a physician to heal them.
Which means that the whole foundation of modern Church dogma is man-made and in error.

If this is true, the question must be asked: Was there any other early teachings that support this position of Jesus who came only to heal those who were sick and in need of a physician?  And this ultra-important teaching which is totally rejected by the Church, is further supported by a quotation of the Apostle Peter in the Homilies of his disciple Clement where Peter states: "For there would have been no need of Moses, or of the coming of Jesus, if of themselves they would have understood what is reasonable..."  And with respect to what is being portrayed as being reasonable to the degree that the person does not need either Moses of Jesus?  From an original Gospel perspective, the Apostle Peter is stating that those who seek to achieve Wholeness do not need either Moses or Jesus In total opposition to modern Church doctrine, Peter then added to the foregoing statement:  "Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords” (Clementine Homilies, Chap. 5, p139 Anti-Nicene Library). Herein, what Peter is stating is that there is no salvation in merely calling upon the name of the Lord as Christians do today throughout their Churches -- but only in achieving Wholeness.
And when rightly understood, those who achieve Wholeness have brought this Condition about by doing the Will of God -- and having lived and manifest the Truth in their daily lives -- which Truth has been revealed to them directly from our Heavenly Father -- i.e., “My teaching is not My own, Jesus replied. It comes from Him who sent Me." And then Jesus explained: "If anyone desires to do His will, he will know whether My teaching is from God or whether I speak on My own" (John 7:16-17).
What this means is that ANYONE who sincerely desires to do the Will of God, will know the Truth, and will learn the Truth directly from God -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God'" (John 6:45). Therefore, in achieving the necessary Wholeness, they did not need Jesus as either a teacher, or for their salvation.

What this demonstrates is that the vast majority of modern Christians are preaching a faux-doctrine when they portray belief in the man Jesus as being necessary for salvation If there were indeed people who had achieved Wholeness prior to the coming of Jesus, and therefore were not in need of a physician to heal them -- and they had achieved this Wholeness without Jesus -- and even prior to the advent of Jesus who came as a healer for those who were sick, it was noted that there would be people from every corner of the earth who would gain entrance into the Kingdom by achieving the necessary Wholeness -- i.e., "Then Jesus traveled throughout the towns and villages, teaching as He made His way toward Jerusalem. Lord, someone asked Him, will only a few people be saved? Jesus answered, Make every effort to enter through the narrow gate. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able After the master of the house gets up and shuts the door, you will stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ But he will reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’ Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’ And he will answer, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers.’" (Luke 13:22-27). The version of the foregoing in Matthew reads: "Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven" (Matt 7:21). And what then is the "will of God"? Thus, Jesus states:  "Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness’" (Matt 7:22-23). What then is "lawlessness"?  Lawlessness must be understood as that mindset and actions that divides our Self and our Consciousness -- thereby inhibiting our ability to be, and achieve Wholeness And in the version in Luke the statement is added: "People will come from east and west and north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God" (Luke 13:29) -- and they will be able to enter into the "narrow gate" by virtue of their achieving the necessary Wholeness to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom.
Christians today feel confident that they have fulfilled the Gospel teachings by merely calling upon the name of Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior They then call themselves Christians, while ignoring the warning that  "...‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness.’"  And then there is the statement of Jesus: "And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46 KJV). And what did Jesus teach?  He taught the necessity of doing the Will of God, and becoming Whole.

The most popular scripture used by the Gentile Christians in the pre-Nicene Church known as the Shepherd of Hermas, confirms the above statements that are in total opposition to the modern dogma of the Church where it is written:  “And the tower, I asked, what does it mean? This tower, he replied, is the Church. And these virgins, who are they? They are Holy Spirits, and men cannot otherwise be found in the kingdom of God unless these have put their clothing upon them: for if you receive the name only, and do not receive from them the clothing, they are of no advantage to you. For these virgins are the powers of the Son of God. If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name” The problem from a modern Christian perspective is seen in the fact that it is impossible to put on the clothing of the virgins (Holy Spirits), without first becoming Whole And therefore, “If you bear His name but possess not His power, it will be in vain that you bear His name”. Thus, if you call yourselves Christian, but fail to become Whole, “it will be in vain that you bear His name”.

Jesus The Physician: The success of a physician is demonstrated in the physicians ability to heal the symptoms and disease of those who are sick In the case of spiritual sickness, to heal and alleviate the symptoms of the disease that has stricken the person, is to free them from the shackles of their sickness When Jesus portrayed those who were not sick as being "whole [and] righteous", what he stated was that mankind in his healed condition ceased to sin and fulfilled the Will of God -- and that those who have achieved this condition of Wholeness, had brought about a condition of sinless living on their own But in light of the witness of those disciples who Jesus taught, this is confirmed in the quotation pertaining to the Ebionite Nazirenes where it is documented that they were of the position that Jesus "...was justified by fulfilling the Law. He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity" (see Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34).  That the historical man Jesus was a pattern for all of mankind because of his success in overcoming the Laws, is demonstrated in the words: "He was the Christ of God, since not one of the rest of mankind had observed the Law completely. Had any one else fulfilled the commandments of the Law, he would have been the Christ..."   And this confirms this statement with respect to the true potential of all of mankind that Jesus taught, as demonstrated in the words of Hippolytus when he wrote that they believed that when anyone "...thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs" (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34 - see http://Ebionite.com ).   Which means that any person who fulfills the Law and becomes Whole, is then able to become a Christ And that this reality is common to all of mankind, is the reason why Jesus taught that he was our brother -- i.e., "Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'" (John 20:17 NIV). From the perspective of the Apostle Peter's above statement, as our brother the man Jesus was the first to "...understood what is reasonable..."  in the fulfillment of the Law and the Will of God.

The Suppression Of How Wholeness Is Achieved: The doctrine that man is a congenital sinner who was born in sin and in need of a Savior as proposed in the Augustinian doctrine of Original Sin (see The Folly Of Original Sin) was imported into the Church from the Mithraic based teachings of the Iranian prophet Mani, in order to explain and fill the great void that the Church suppression of important teachings on the pre-existent soul created.
The fact that it is easily proven that the original disciples of Jesus believed in the pre-existent Soul that evolved to Wholeness and Completion over the course of many lifetimes (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development ) -- and that the Church Father Origen was correct when he explained that “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis - see The Early Church On Predestination), means that there is no place in the Original Gospel teachings for the doctrine of Original Sin that was incorporated into the Church teachings when the teachings on pre-existence was suppressed and outlawed.
Why was this ultra-important teaching outlawed?  Because the spiritually disenfranchised clergy and secular leaders in the Church did not want to embrace the original teaching that they had to pick up their cross and follow the pattern of Jesus in becoming Whole -- they only wanted to believe in him from the Mithraic perception of him as the latest incarnation of God incarnate who only had to be believed in.
The Roman Emperor Constantine was not baptized until he was on his death-bed, in order for him to ensure his salvation.
He had been informed by the Pagan priests that he was too evil to obtain his salvation -- but was promised by the quasi-Christian clergy that the rite of baptism would absolve him of his sins.
In order to assure his salvation, Constantine kept a Christian priest in constant tow, in order to baptize him at his death.
But what this also means is that from an Original Gospel perspective where the deeds of Constantine and the faux-priests of the Church would be confronted by their evil deeds in subsequent lifetimes -- i.e., “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7) -- confirmed that there is no salvation in merely believing in Jesus as modern Christians maintain to this very day -- i.e., "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven..." (Matt 7:21-23). Which means that apart from achieving the necessary Wholeness, there is no salvation in merely believing in Jesus as maintained by the Church But what this also meant was that the whole teaching on the journey of the pre-existent Soul that evolves to Wholeness and Completion over the course of many UNIQUE lifetimes, had to be totally suppressed and even outlawed.
But what this also means is that the foundation of the Church has been built upon a lie and a bogus fraud  

With respect to the removal and suppression of the original teaching on the pre-existent Soul, quoting Prof. Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Prof. Burrows writes: “There are those who believe or assume that the Greek and Hebrew texts from which our translations are made are infallible. No person who has studied textual criticism at all could believe that. The most conservative scholars in the most conservative churches recognize that the text has become corrupt at many points in the course of its transmission. If that were not already well known and universally admitted, the Dead Sea Scrolls would demonstrate it conclusively.”  When Prof. John Allegro was quoted as saying that what has been revealed in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls is a great amount of overwhelming evidence that “...may upset a great many basic teachings of the Christian Church.
This in turn would greatly upset many Christian Theologians and believers.
The heart of the matter is, in fact, the source and originality of Christian doctrine”
(August 1966 issue of Harpers Magazine), few modern Christians have even begun to understand why Prof. Allegro made this statement, which confirmed the position of A. Powell Davies that: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls).  What was it about the Original Foundational Gospel teachings that had virtually nothing in common with what modern Christians believe today? And perhaps the more important question: Does it matter?

The doctrine that man was not only born in sin -- but is a congenital sinner that must be redeemed -- and thereafter continues to be stricken by the symptoms associated with the disease of sin -- is very much apostasy to the Gospel teachings In opposition to the Augustinian doctrine of Original Sin, a monk named Pelagius wrote that: “Man is able, if he likes, to live without sin and keep the commandments of God, in as much as God gives him this ability”.
It is important to understand the relationship of Wholeness and the words of Pelagius that "...in as much as God gives him this ability” -- and it is the condition of Wholeness of Self that bestows the Power of God to live without and apart from sin.
Which provokes the question: If God gave you the power and ability to live apart from sin, would you be able to separate yourself from sinful behavior and acts? In portraying some people as "whole [and] righteous" and in not need of a moral and spiritual physician, the whole of modern Church doctrine must be seen as not only bogus and counterfeit, but in total opposition to the purpose and objectives of the Original Gospel teachings And as noted in the words of the Gospel that there did exist a group of people at the time of Jesus who had themselves achieved a life of "wholeness [and] righteousness" who did not need a physician to heal them and provide salvation, means that all of mankind are equally able to live a life of "wholeness [and] righteousness" Which demonstrates that the statement of Pelagius in opposition to the Mithraic based teachings of the Iranian prophet Mani which was adopted as the foundation of Church dogma, was correct.

The most popular and accepted scripture over the first three centuries was the Shepherd of Hermas (see Shepherd), which states that once one receives the sacrament of baptism which is the "wedding garment", there is only one opportunity for repentance from any future sins -- i.e., "For he that hath received remission of sins ought no longer to sin, but to dwell in purity ...But I say unto you', saith he, `if after this great and holy calling any one, being tempted of the devil, shall commit sin, he hath only one (opportunity of) repentance."  Is this statement in the Shepherd of Hermas any different than the words of the Apostle Paul in the warning: "For it is impossible to restore again to repentance those who ...then commit apostasy, since they crucify the Son of God on their own account and hold him up to contempt.. For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." (Heb 6:4-6;10:26-27 RSV).
Thus, Acts 3:19 confirms the original teachings that baptism -- as the required wedding garment -- must constitute a total repentance from sin, and the living of a life where the believer does not consciously commit any future sin: "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you...".
To repent and turn to God, requires a total change of mind and lifestyle.
Those who truly accomplish this, will personally receive the Anointing (Messiah/Christ), which will open their minds and enlighten them in accord with their Spiritual Condition.   

As older pre-Nicene collections and copies of ancient scriptures are recovered through archaeological discoveries, they continue to demonstrate the existence of an entirely different Christianity that is totally foreign to the Church that enlists under the name of Christ today In fact, even with the documentation long possessed by the modern church, it is easy to literally pull the proverbial rug right out from under the very foundation of popular Christian thought In a surviving excerpt of what has been historically known as the Gospel According to the Hebrews, which was reported to be the "original version of Matthew" that was composed in the Hebrew language, of which our present day gospel is a Greek translation of, it was written: "If ye be in my bosom and do not the will of my Father which is in heaven, out of my bosom will I cast you away" In the late nineteenth century a library of scriptures was uncovered which is today known as the Oxyrhynchus Papyri -- wherein this verse is found reading: "Though ye be gathered together with me in my bosom, if ye do not my commandants, I will cast you forth".
And to the horror of modern Christians who reject the Gospel of the Nazirenes (see
Gospel Of The Nazirenes) and all its strange readings, we once again find this same verse: And I say to you, "Though you be gathered together in my bosom, if you keep not my commandments I will cast you forth. For if you keep not the lesser mysteries, who shall give you the greater."  This same verse of scripture is quoted in what is historically known as the 2nd Epistle of Clement, where it is written: "Let us, then, not only call Him Lord, for that will not save us. For He saith, 'Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall be saved, but he that worketh righteousness' …For this reason… the Lord hath said, 'Even though ye were gathered together to me in my very bosom, yet if ye were not to keep my commandments, I would cast you off, and say unto you, Depart from me; I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity’".

What this means is that the religion of Jesus in its original form was one of spiritual transformation -- and those who willfully sin after coming to the knowledge of Christ -- being initially clothed in the "wedding garment"of Spiritual Baptism -- crucify the Son of God afresh when they then willfully sin -- and in the warning of Paul, "...there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries." This is why Paul stated with respect to those who call themselves Christian, and continue to live a sinful life: "But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor"(Gal 2:17-18 KJV).
Which confirms the alternate ending of the Gospel of Mark which reads: "This Age of lawlessness and unbelieving lies under the sway of Satan, who will not allow what lies under the unclean spirits to understand the truth and power of God; therefore, they said to Christ, reveal your righteousness now. Christ answered them, The term of years for Satan's power has now expired, but other terrors are at hand. I was delivered to death on behalf of sinners, that they might return to the truth and sin no more, that they might inherit that glory of righteousness which is spiritual and imperishable in heaven"(Moffatt, quoting Gospel Of Mark in Codex W - Also quoted by St. Jerome as being the authentic ending of the Gospel of Mark).
Thus, Jesus warned those who would call upon the Lord and expect to have earned salvation: “But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say?”(Luke 6:46 NKJ).
And, “Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven”(Matt 7:21 NIV).
That the very people who with their lips proclaim themselves to believe, continue to lie "...under the sway of Satan"-- or, in the words of John: "Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.  He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning"(1 John 3:7-8 NKJV).

The sincere Christian will of course pose the question: Is the above teaching on baptism valid and correct? Is the Christian held accountable for their willful sins after baptism? On this very subject the Apostle Peter makes the profound statement: "If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and, A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud" (2 Pet 2:20-22 NIV).
Where the modern Church promotes the doctrine that they are saved by Grace regardless of the manner in which they live their lives, Peter not only states that this doctrine is in grave error, but correctly states that: "It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them." Every Christian should ask themselves: How Can This Be??? How can those who have never known the teachings of Christ, be better off than those who having heard and been baptized into TheWay, and are complacent towards those teachings? 

What does this mean to mankind as a whole?  If any of mankind as portrayed in the parable of the Prodigal Son who "came to his senses" (Luke 15:17) -- and having "come to his senses"  was therefore able to "...understand what is reasonable", and bring about the condition of Wholeness within their own mind and being, they would not need Moses or Jesus, or any other physician or teacher of this world.
And this is why there is no savior who was sent into the Far Country to rescue the lost prodigal son who was portrayed as existing in a state of death -- "...For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found" (Luke 15:24). And when rightly understood, in order to "come to one's senses", the person must achieve Wholeness.    

When rightly understood, the statement of Jesus contained in the Gospel of Thomas is of an utmost importance to understand the meaning of Wholeness -- i.e., "Jesus said, ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty". And while this may not make sense to the vast majority of Christians, if you understand that in order to Know Thyself, you must have achieved a high level of Wholeness, then you will begin to understand why those who lack the true knowledge of Self, dwell in a state of intellectual and spiritual poverty But what this also means is that if those who teach or lead you fail to understand the reality of Wholeness within their own mind and being, then you are being led into a condition of intellectual and spiritual poverty by virtue of the shackles of ignorance that has been imposed upon you.  "My People Are Destroyed For Lack Of Knowledge, Because You Have Rejected Knowledge, I Reject You..." (Hosea 4:6).

If mankind as portrayed in the parable of the lost prodigal son does not need a teacher or a savior -- but must achieve Wholeness in order to be restored to the Edenic Kingdom -- then the question must be asked: How can this Wholeness be brought about?  If we possessed Self-Knowledge and understood the Cosmology of Mind and Being, then we would understand that Wholeness requires the development of all the spheres and innate aspects of our mind to bring about an expanded and deepened manifestation of consciousness When Paul spoke of the need to develop spiritual maturity and wholeness in the statement: "Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought" (1 Cor 2:6), Paul was portraying a person who had achieved Wholeness of Mind and Being And to explain to the baptized and committed congregation of Christians who Paul had himself taught what he portrayed as the historical accounts and "traditions" of the Gospel, Paul stated: "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal" (1 Cor 3:1-3 NKJ). Why could they only be nourished by what Paul portrayed as "milk" for "babes in Christ who could only be given the quasi-historical traditions of the Gospel? Because, until their (human) minds were transformed, matured and made Whole, they remained unable to comprehend both the spiritual meaning of the Gospel teachings, and their own higher Soul and Spiritual reality.
And this inability to understand the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel, as well as the higher reality of Self, continues to remain true even today among faith-based Christians.

The term Esoteric (secret) Knowledge applies to the Inward body of the Knowledge of Mind and Spirit -- and when Jesus taught that the Kingdom can never come upon the earth so as to be externally seen -- because it can only be found and entered within the Mind of Mankind -- then it is the Esoteric meaning of the Gospel that Paul could not convey to the immature faith-based Christians that is the most important body of Knowledge that man can embrace -- i.e., "And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:20-21). And this is why Jesus stated that the Mysteries of the Kingdom as manifest in the Esoteric Knowledge of both the true meaning of the scriptures and the Cosmology of our own mind and consciousness, belongs only to the sincere seeker who has picked up their own cross and travailed in TheWay -- i.e., "Unto you is given the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest haply they should turn again..." (Mark 4:11-12 ASV) -- and the term, "...lest haply they should turn again", is stated in reference to the Kingdom that can only be found within themselves that they must be consciously restored to.

What is the source of sin?  Of evil?  Of the great discord that is the cause of world-conflict? Why can't mankind embrace the path of peace?  Why can't the world's greatest minds find the solution to the dilemma of sin, evil and conflict?  Why does all their solutions come to naught? The answer is, Self-Ignorance and what it means to be Whole Sadly, the answer to the plight of mankind is presented in these words of wisdom:  "For those who guide this people are leading them astray; And those who are guided by them are brought to confusion" (Isaiah 9:16).
And when rightly understood, the error of their ways is the result of self-ignorance When it is realized that those who lead the people fail to even know what Wholeness of Self means, they can only be defined in the words: "Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit” (Matt 15:14). As stated in the words of Wisdom presented in the Gospel of Thomas: "Jesus said, ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty". And thus, while the world dwells in intellectual and spiritual poverty, the shackles of self-ignorance imposed upon mankind by blind leaders continue to bring about the death and suffering of innocent men, women and children.

Sadly, while they were supposed to be the Light of the World, the vast majority of Christians not only reject the validity of the words of Jesus as presented above in the Gospel of Thomas, but they fail to acknowledge even the Gospel of Thomas itself.
Why?  Because like the Jews, the leaders of their Churches have thrown away the Key of Knowledge and have lost all understanding of the meaning and purpose of the Original Gospel Because those who have been guiding the people have drawn their attention outwardly -- looking outwardly for what can only be found within themselves -- totally abandoning any pursuit of Self-Knowledge -- they possess virtually no understanding of what it means to be Whole.
And thus, true to the words of Isaiah, "...those who are guided by them are brought to confusion".

When the higher reality of Self and Wholeness is understood, modern academia is clueless as to the cause of man's dilemma And while Christians mean well, the doctrines of their Church has made it virtually impossible for them to truly come to the spiritual physician who in the words of the Apostle Peter, "Neither is there salvation in believing in teachers and calling them lords” In order to be healed by the physician, you must follow his directions, and you must consume the medicine he dispenses.   The problem is that the man-made doctrines of the Church totally undermine the very purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings   And in the suppression to the Higher Knowledge of one's own Self that is the cause of all sin, evil and conflict in the world Why? Because they totally lack the necessary Wholeness of Mind and Being that would enable them to comprehend the higher reality of the Soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom Because organic man exists in a fragmented and incomplete embryonic condition of mind, the untransformed believer is simply incapable of comprehending anything beyond the mundane things of this world And what will become clear throughout this article, is that every person who has ever walked the face of the earth possesses the innate potential to connect and learn directly from the Indwelling Logos (a.k.a. Son of God). And when the Gospel account declares that there is only One Way into the Kingdom, it is making reference to this process of development and transformation known as TheWay -- i.e.,  "I worship the God of our fathers As a follower of The Way" (Acts 24:14).

When rightly understood, the question that is being posed is how can we become nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life as portrayed in the statement: "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" (Gen 3:22-23).
The following allegorical verses are the most important with respect to the Journey of the Soul where it is written: "...therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life." The cherubim are an allegorical  representative of the Laws that perpetually test us for the necessary Wholeness that the Soul must achieve to be nourished by the Life-Giving Fruit of the Tree of Life These Laws are not intended to inhibit us -- but to test us, to see if we are Whole and Complete Which means that the lower nature of the Soul as personified in the prodigal son, must perpetually wander in this, the Far Country (Outer Darkness), until which time the Soul can achieve the necessary Wholeness and Completion that enables the Soul to prevail over the Laws that allegorically guard the Fruit (Divine Manna/Knowledge ) of the Tree of Life The historical man Jesus was the first of the prodigal sons to complete the Journey of the Soul -- becoming At-One with the Indwelling Logos -- and the Divine Knowledge of all of Creation.
Therefore, the Soul of the historical man Jesus was Complete and Whole -- and the purpose and objective of the Original Gospel Teachings was to bring about this same developmental-transformation within the body, mind, Soul and Spirit of the sincere seekers who personify the prodigal son who comes "to his senses", and begins the journey Home And the process of bringing about the necessary Wholeness and Completion is portrayed in the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).  When the Prodigal Son is nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life, only then can s/he enter through the "strait gate" within their own mind and being, and consciously enter what is portrayed as the Edenic Kingdom.
When it is recognized that the parables in the Gospels are Universal Truths that are equally relevant to the lives of all of mankind -- and that all of mankind as portrayed in the parable of the Prodigal Son is able to return to the Kingdom of the Father without a savior, by "coming to his senses" as stated in the parable -- then what is being presented in the parable is confirmation of the above quoted statement that there is no need for a savior or law-giver when the seeker "...understands what is reasonable".
And this is why the Gospel account of Jesus states that "They that are whole have no need of the physician...".

Man's superior intellect and ability to know and understand and evolve to a condition of Enlightenment in the Knowledge of all Truths, is manifest in THE POTENTIAL of his great diversity of Mind that has the unique ability to perceive all sides of any given equation -- diverse, complex and often conflicting perspectives that can in many instances be portrayed as paradoxical opposites What is a paradox?  A paradox exists when two opposing truths are equally true, though often conflicting -- and can only be harmonized by an evolved third-force balance (of mind) that functions on an higher plane than the two opposing opposite truths A paradox is often portrayed in the image of the Triangle at the right -- where the two opposing paradoxical truths are represented by the points of the opposite horizontal line -- with the (evolved) third-force balance existing on a higher plane -- with the angles which are representative of the Laws being equal but reversed on the horizontal line, and equal again on the third-force balance on the higher plane An immature (earthly) understanding would be portrayed with the third-force balance existing on the same horizontal line as the two opposing paradoxical truths.
Thus, as the mind matures and the Laws (angles) are prevailed over on the elevated higher plane, only then can the paradoxical opposites be resolved And from a Trinitarian perspective, this is a reality of the Three being One and Equal.

For this higher third-force balance to exist, each of the opposing opposites must have evolved to a condition of fullness in their own right -- and this fullness is symbolically demonstrated in the image of the Triangle in the equality of the angles (Laws) on each side of the paradoxical line How is this accomplished?  In accord with your own Soul's previous accomplishments -- i.e., your Soul's weaknesses and strengths that each person brings into their present life that they are living -- with the Natural Laws of Creation which cause you to be born polarized to one of the twelve spheres of mind -- thereby, causing you to perceptively see and understand from that spheres perspective.
In the words of the pre-Nicene Church Father Origen: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis see The Biblical Foundation Mindset http://ChristianReincarnation.org#BiblicalFoundationalMindset ). What is your Soul's (developed) strengths and weaknesses?  In view of the fact that the Condition with respect to the depth and intensity of the Light of the Soul is easily perceived, the conditions of birth and the Laws your Soul needs to be born under is easily discerned And in most instances, the Soul itself chooses the life it will be born into.
Jesus said: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt 5:48) -- and this perfection can best be evaluated from the perspective of Wholeness: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17). 

Mankind possess the INNATE POTENTIAL to perceptively comprehend the complex equations of life, because of the POTENTIAL of his  great diversity of Mind that is able to perceive and understand what the person sees from many varied and sometimes conflicting perspectives -- a unique ability with which mankind has been imbued, by virtue of a great diversity of mind that is contingent upon unique opposite spheres or centers within the construct of the same mind that simultaneously perceive all of life from different and often paradoxical perspectives and understandings But this ability to perceive any given situation from opposite and often conflicting perspectives, requires each of the centers of mind that perceive from opposite perspectives, to be developed independently of the other spheres of mind F. Scott Fitzgerald stated: "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function."  Ultimately, when the pattern of mind as personified in the Tree of Life is understood, an Enlightened Soul must be able to hold four (4) paradoxical opposite truths in their mind and still retain the ability to not only function -- but to perceive the Evolved Third-Force of reality that exists on a higher plane that merges the four paradoxical opposites into One Dynamic Thought and Expression of Higher Truth.
The Higher Perspective is never from one side or the other of the equation Yet, if both sides to the equation are not INDEPENDENTLY developed to their own fullness and maturity, then the Higher Mind is incapable of perceiving from the perspective of an Enlightened and Balanced Perspective.  

The Potential Enlightened Mind of man is dependent upon his ability to perceive and understand all opposite sides of all equations presented to him.
But to develop this unique ability to see and comprehend all opposing thoughts and realities, man must develop each of the centers of mind which produce those insights -- insights that can only be evolved, when the whole of the mind is functioning from that sphere of thought and mind In order to develop the (inward-looking) Intuitive Spheres of Mind and its intuitive insights that often set it in opposition to the Linear Spheres of Mind, the Soul must be born into a life (or series of lives) where the Intuitive insights are dominant -- and this development requires an environment where the Intuitive insights are able to (externally) interact with not only their opposite Linear insights, but also the other ten (10) spheres of mind -- each of which perceive and understand the world and self from a totally different and often conflicting perspectives And in the same way, in order develop the (outward-looking) Linear Spheres of Mind and its linear insights that often set it in opposition to the Intuitive Spheres of Mind, the Soul must be born into a life (or series of lives) where the Linear insights are dominant -- and this development requires an environment where the Linear insights are able to interact with not only their opposite Intuitive insights, but also the other ten (10) spheres of mind -- each of which perceive and understand the world and self from a totally different and often conflicting perspective And this is also true of all twelve (12) spheres of mind where the Soul is born into a life where one sphere is dominant, and is able to develop by interacting with the insights of the other eleven (11) spheres of mind.
Therefore, in order to develop each Soul to its full potential, the Natural Laws orchestrate lives where the soul-generated personalities are polarized to one(1)  aspect of thought within one of the twelve spheres of mind, and sees and understands life only from the perspective of that aspect of the sphere the person is born into.
And this process of being born into polarized aspects of the twelve spheres of mind will continue, until the Soul-Mind is evolved to the degree that Wholeness can be achieved and manifested.

Our True-Self or Soul-Self exists on a Higher Plane that cannot manifest in this three-dimensional realm because of the inherent human limitations of consciousness and being Yet, man is capable of bringing about the necessary expansion and deepening of mind that permits him to be At-One with his Higher Soul-Self.
Therefore, what this realm of three-dimensional reality does supply, is an environment where aspects of mind can manifest and interact with other and even opposite aspects of mind that is necessary to stimulate growth and development.
In order for each of the twelve spheres of mind to evolve to their own fullness, they must be able to manifest and interact with their opposites And without this interaction, no growth and development can be brought about.
Which is why this realm is often portrayed as God's School House for His divine offspring (prodigal sons).

What is portrayed as the Logos (Mind of God) which is presented to be the Third-Force balance or Offspring of Mother/Father God -- i.e., the Son of God -- exists on a Higher Plane than our True-Self or Soul-Self.
In the article below I will portray each soul-generated personality (that we are) as a single-neuron in the mind of the Soul -- and each Soul which is our True-Self, as a single Neuron in the Mind of God.    Which means that as a single neuron in the mind of the Soul, it is through the interaction with others and especially our opposites that initiates growth, development and higher maturity Thus, if a great meteor was to impact this world and wipe out all organic life, a new world would have to be developed that would serve the crucial needs that this present world is supporting.
Quoting from The Evolving Soul

In the beginning all souls existed as sparks of the Divine. In what I portray as the realm of souls, each individual soul would be perceived as a weak flickering light -- like a distant star. Quoting The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia under the heading of Souls, Transmigration of: “The doctrine of transmigration of souls, which was especially accepted by the Karaites… is defended by Isaac Abravanel and Manasseh ben Israel. It appears often in Cabala; it is found in organized form in the Zohar, it is further developed in the teachings of Isaac Luria (1534-1572), and in Hasidism it becomes a universal belief. According to these teachings, all human souls have a common origin in the spiritual unity of the primordial man, sparks of which form the individual souls... The sin of Adam brought higher and lower souls into confusion; as a result, every soul has to pass through a series of incarnations... The soul itself has no sex, which is determined by the body and may vary from incarnation to incarnation” Thus, the pre-existent soul of man which is portrayed as "..sparks of which form the individual souls..." are in fact the Beings of Light encountered by some in a Near Death Experience -- and it is this Being of Light that is each person's true form and self.
Moreover, in our natural state we are a Being of Light -- and our body-vessel which we inhabit in this world, is merely an allegorical projection of mind and spirit into the image of the body.
That the journey of the soul over the course of many lifetimes was an integral part of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- and was removed by the Roman Emperors who ruled over the doctrines of the Church -- is demonstrated conclusively in The Ten Reasons Why The Church Rejects The Teaching On The Pre-Existent Soul.

In the Zohar it is written that: “All souls are subject to the trials of transmigration; and men do not know the designs of the Most High with regard to them… The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; and if they have not fulfilled this condition during one life, they must commence another, a third, and so forth, until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God” In order to begin to understand Soul-Evolution, we must focus on the above words:   "...The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; ...until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.    Which is expressed in the Sermon on the Mount in the words of Jesus when he stated: "You, therefore, must be Perfect, as your Heavenly Father is Perfect" (Matt 5:48).
But what constitutes perfection? And how is this condition brought about in the Journey of the Soul?

The soul of every person began their existence in the Alpha of Creation as "sparks" of the Divine Mind of Creator-God.
But to even begin to contemplate the Higher Reality of Creator-God and our relationship thereof, we must understand the statement in one of the most ignored Gospel statements in the New Testament where mankind is portrayed not only as the offspring of God, but as dwelling within the Mind of God -- i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28).
Put this together with the statement by  James Jeans (see Science, Religion, And The Field/Mind) that: “...the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine”.
 Or the words of Arthur Eddington: “The stuff of the universe is mind-stuff”.And you have portrayed a higher reality that few people are even prepared to contemplate -- much less, understand with a sufficient degree to even form a realistic opinion.    Further, if you attempted to convey this reality to the common man of the first century, they would very much reject what you are saying as "foolishness" -- much like the vast majority of mankind today.

Those who are able to enter what I call the Realm of Souls -- i.e., a Higher Reality that must be entered by going within self -- upon entering this Sacred Realm where everyone exists in their Pure State as a Being of Light, one is immediately struck by the fact that most Souls appear as a weak flicking light -- like a distant star.
The more advanced the Soul, the bigger and bright the light.
In the case of the few who can be categorized as Spiritually Advanced -- such as the Soul who lived as the historical man Jesus -- is a Soul of great Intellectual and Knowing Light, Depth and Expanse.
And where all Souls including the Soul of Jesus all began in the Alpha as sparks of the Divine Mind, the Laws have been put into place (see The Laws As A Living Bio-Feedback Organism) whereby Every Soul will in the Omega of Creation evolve to a Great Being of Light.
Which provokes the questions: What Process causes the Light of the Soul to evolve and grow from a mere spark, into a Great Light? And if it can be stated that as presented in the Gospel of Thomas that: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty" -- how much more in the case of those who fail to understand the process that evolves the Light of the Soul?

When the first century elder Ignatius wrote to the Christian congregation of believers that: “Might I not write to you things more full of mystery?  But I fear to do so, lest I should inflict injury on you who are babes Pardon me in this respect, lest, as not being able to receive their weighty import, ye should be strangled by them” -- he said this because if he was to begin to even convey the truth and reality of man's higher soul and spiritual nature and the Kingdom, these Christians would very quickly dismiss him as a crazy lunatic, and would no longer listen to a thing that he says.
Therefore, Ignatius, as with all the biblical authors (see Mystery), understood that the mind of the believer must be matured -- the dormant spheres of mind that do not correspond to this physical world must become activated and developed -- in order for the believer to begin to perceive and grasp his own higher soul and spiritual reality.
And this expansion of organic human conscious beyond normal physical limits is what is portrayed in the process: "Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little" (Isa 28:9-10 NKJ).
In the same way that an infant grows into a child and adult one step at a time, so too does the process of mental-expansion take place line upon line.

The Natural Laws of Creation cause each action to return to its source In the Alpha of Creation, God generated all the Souls into existence as "sparks" of the Divine Mind as stated in the quotation from the Zohar above And these Souls formed what can be portrayed as the Mind of God -- i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28). God therefore experiences through the Souls that form the Divine Mind.
But in the Alpha of Creation, infinite darkness and ignorance prevailed, because no experiential knowledge existed Therefore, in order for the individual Souls to develop, they had to interact with each other -- which is basically impossible in the twelve (12) dimensional Realm of Souls And in accord with the holographic divine pattern that is replicated into all levels of Creation, in the same way that an infinite number of Souls came into existence in the Divine Mind, soul-generated personalities in the form of man and woman came into existence in the mind of the Soul.
So the Soul generated personalities were then able to interact and experience in this three (3) dimensional realm of duality Duality being where the opposites of mind and being could manifest and interact with each other.

In the same way that the Natural Laws of Creation cause each action to return to its Source -- the individual Souls must return to Creator God -- and each of the soul-generated personalities representative of mankind, must return to the Soul that generated that personality -- as stated in the words: "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11).

What this means is that each of the Souls generated in the Alpha of Creation, MUST return to their SOURCE -- but can only return to their SOURCE when that Soul has achieved Wholeness -- as stated in the above: "...The souls must re-enter the absolute substance whence they have emerged But to accomplish this end they must develop all the perfections, the germ of which is planted in them; ...until they have acquired the condition which fits them for reunion with God”.
And while Creator-God is able to look down upon all of Creation that is beneath God's Level of Consciousness, without the necessary Wholeness, the lower aspects of Creation cannot perceive upward beyond their own level of mental and spiritual development and Wholeness And this is also true with respect to mankind as soul-generated personalities -- i.e., while our Soul-Self can see and observe our struggles and is cognizant of all our thoughts and actions, we cannot perceive above our earthly level of consciousness without achieving a high degree of Wholeness within our own mind and being.
Therefore, to Know Thyself, you must achieve Wholeness and attain a Condition of being At-One with your True-Self And because of the Natural Law of Return, we cannot jump over our Soul-Level of Self.
Unless the person has achieved Wholeness and Perfection in the manner of the historical man Jesus, mankind cannot communicate directly with God.
And when we develop our inward facilities of mind, only then can we begin to communicate with our own Higher Soul-Self.
And this inability to communicate directly with God -- or, because we are soul-generated images that exist within the mind of our Souls -- this is the reason why the Deists maintained that God does not directly intervene in the affairs of man (see The Clockmaker Vs Jalopy Universe).
Quoting from the previous link: In the same way that once fertilized, an embryo develops in accord with the Natural Laws, the same is true with respect to all of Creation When the Laws that were put into effect are understood, perhaps the best way to portray these Laws that the Deist's portrayed as the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, is as a Spiritual Bio-Feedback machine that dynamically evolves each soul to perfection by intimately responding to our every action, reaction and failure to act -- and responds appropriately when the time is manifest when the opportunity for our greatest learning and advancement is brought about That these Laws were put into action in the Alpha of Creation -- and are the Perfect Works of Creator-God that is Dynamically connected to movement of man -- is a reality of the Laws that the core Deists attempted unsuccessfully to convey to the theists and organized religion Finally, it is ultra important to understand the primary difference between the Theist and Deist perceptions of God and the two allegorical Creation Accounts in Genesis (see The Two Creation Accounts ).

We dwell under the Domain of the Natural Laws of Creator-God that were put into effect in the Alpha of Creation (see The Laws Of Creation). And it is these Laws that were put into effect in the First Genesis Creation Account (see The Laws of the Two Creation Accounts and how they intimately effect all of mankind), that are responsible for evolving all of Creation from the Alpha of Dark Ignorance, to the Omega of Enlightened Light that guarantee that all of Creation MUST return to its Source And because all that exists, exists within the Mind of God --i.e., “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28) -- all Actions MUST return to their Source: "...So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it" (Isa 55:8-11). And this is accomplished by the Law of Return And this is also the basis of the statement: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7).  Or the assertion that “God will give to each person according to what he has done” (Rom 2:6).
How?  This is brought about through the Natural Laws that returns each action back to its Source Which can also be stated in the words: “If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” (Rev 13:9-10) -- which can also be expressed in the words: "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets" (Matt 7:12). Why is these Words spoken by Creator-God "...the Law and the Prophets"?  Because of the Law of Return which causes all actions to return to its Source -- and as explored in the below, because of the Law of Octaves, when our own actions return back to us, they often return in the opposite polarity -- which ultimately is the cause of what man portrays as good and evil.

As I will state and explain a number of times with respect to the Law of Return: When rightly understood, the Gospel Sermon on the Mount is a proclamation of the Natural Laws that control all realities in the life that every person is living (see Jesus The Law Professor). And the Natural Laws interact and intimately affect every aspect of your life regardless of your belief or non-belief When rightly understood, this world can therefore be portrayed as a Living Bio-Feedback Organism that for the objective and purpose of our learning and bringing about our development, returns to each person the fruit of their own words, thoughts, desires and deeds -- not immediately as when we touch a hot plate -- but rather, in many instances this realm returns our actions back to us in a subsequent life when a reversal of polarity has been brought about.
As stated in the Bible: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Gal 6:7).
Not immediately -- because that would negate the process of growth, development and testing If you hit someone, and you were immediately hit in the same measure you did to the other person, then you would simply refrain from hitting the other person.
The reasons you hit the other person would not be resolved, just suppressed But if the Laws of Creation brought about that condition which was reversed, only then would you -- as a victim of your Soul's own previous actions -- learn the consequences of being hit You would then learn from the experience of the victim -- and, because your Soul would possess the experiences of both, your Soul would learn and develop from the experiences of both aggressor and victim And this is why the Enlightened Deists who understood the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, maintained that Creator-God does not directly intervene in the affairs of man -- which affairs are maintained and orchestrated by the Natural Laws of Creation which interact with our every word, thought, desire and deed.
How?  Because as stated in the above, “‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’” (Acts 17:28). Ultimately, we all dwell within the One Mind Therefore, there are no secrets -- and every thought we entertain, on another level interacts with the Laws of Creation: "For from within the hearts of men come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, debauchery, envy, slander, arrogance, and foolishness. 23All these evils come from within, and these are what defile a man” (Mark 7:21-22). 

Wholeness can be measured by our frequency of body, mind and spirit -- "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he" (Prov 23:7). Which can be said in the words: "Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you" (Matt 7:1-2).
When you judge, you become anchored by your judgments -- but when you intelligently discern, you manifest a more Whole Frequency of body, mind and spirit In view of the fact that the thinking of most people are of the earth, they are therefore only capable of perceiving and understanding what is at an earth-vibration of mind.
And because we dwell within the One Mind -- and our every thought is monitored and interacts with the Laws of Creation -- what is allegorical portrayed as Judgment Day is in reality a portrayal of our daily interaction with the Natural Laws -- i.e., quoting from Judgment Day - Evolving To Maturity Of Mind And Being: The Word of God is manifest in the Laws which continually monitor and interact with our every word, thought, desire and deed: "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart" (Heb 4:12). While a person may plan and attempt to devise the road he desires to travel, the Laws direct his steps based upon the thoughts of his heart:  "A person may plan his own journey, but the LORD [the Laws] directs his steps" (Prov 16:9).
Those who are able to present and manifest Wholeness and Spiritual Maturity to the Laws, find the Higher Paths of TheWay opening for them: "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way" (Psalms 37:23).
When we judge others, we impose our own thinking upon them When we discern the circumstances of their lives, we seek to understand both ourselves, and the Natural Laws that are working upon the other person.

The inherent human problem is seen in the fact that man's POTENTIAL of great diversity of mind MUST be developed -- and since the development of MIND requires the exercise of freewill and the making of intelligent and proper choices in life -- and because man is often motivated by his own carnal appetites over the higher good -- the great potential of diversity of mind is rarely present in the undeveloped organic "natural" mind of the vast majority of unenlightened mankind In the same way that a fetus has the potential to be a child -- a child has the potential to be an adult person -- mankind in his embryonic condition of mind has the potential to be an Enlightened Being of Light -- and the Natural Laws of Creation will continue to develop each Soul, until each Soul has achieved their full potential The problem is seen in the fact that mankind is in most instances led by what the Gospels portray as blind-guides who are ignorant of both man's true potential and destiny, and how this destiny will be brought about through the Natural Laws of Creation.
In the same way that the Natural Laws work within the fetus to evolve through every level of spiritual development, these same Natural Laws work within the Mind of God to evolve all of Creation What this means is that the lost prodigal sons will continue to roam the destitute places in this, the Far Country or Outer Darkness of mind and being -- dwelling under the domain of the earthly power that is portrayed as the Citizen of the Far Country -- until which time the Natural Laws has evolved him until he achieves his True Potential.

The vast majority of mankind remain anchored to a carnal mind-set, portrayed by Paul as an "animal-soul" level of consciousness that is incapable of comprehending its own higher Soul and Spiritual Natures.
Thereby rendering the vast majority of mankind as a stranger to their own True-Self.
And so long as man remains controlled by the animal-consciousness and self-serving appetites of his own lower animal nature, it will remain impossible for him to advance toward his ultimate destiny (see Organic Man Ruled Over By His Lower Animal Nature) -- a destiny that he has no choice to eventually achieve Therefore, when we make reference to man's INNATE POTENTIAL, what we are referencing is a reality of Higher Mind that MUST be developed And thus, the necessary development of the twelve (12) independent spheres of mind that are capable of enabling the greater-mind to perceive and understand independently from both sides of all equations -- and bring the independent perspectives up to a higher understanding of the greatly varied segments (of mind) that the lower positions are based upon -- only then can we begin to achieve the NECESSARY Higher Understanding that is our True Reality of Consciousness as the divine offspring of Creator-God.
Thus, the problem is seen in the fact that this Higher Understanding requires the development of each of the (12) independent spheres which out of many fragmented perspectives serve as the foundation for the higher consensus enlightened position.
But to achieve this Higher Mind, each of the twelve (12) Spheres of mind must be developed and evolved independently from the other Spheres of mind, before they are then able to begin to function in harmony and oneness on the higher plane of man's true potential And what this means is that each of these twelve (12) spheres of mind that perceive self and life from different and often opposite perspectives, must not only exist within the same Mind -- thereby enabling the great diversity of mind necessary to attain higher vision and comprehension -- but each unique sphere must possess maturity by developing independently of the other spheres of mind that perceive from a conflicting and paradoxical opposite perspective.
And if one fails to understand this necessary pattern of mind that is able to perceive and balance the opposite perspectives of self and life, then such a person dwells in the condition of abject intellectual poverty portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas -- i.e., "Jesus said, ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty"..

Quoting from The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind: If you could acknowledge the great volume of the almost countless and endless perceptive-opinions among mankind, what only a very few people understand is the fact that these opinions are the result of the Natural Laws causing each person to see and understand the world and the life they are living from a unique and different perspective.
Why does the Natural Laws do this? In order for all the aspects of mind to develop -- which, when reaching maturity in their own right,  have the ability to raise up the whole Allegorically, this different and often conflicting body of perceptive-opinions has been portrayed as the Tower of Babel Syndrome (see Gen 11:1-7) -- where because each person is functioning under different Laws, they not only see the world differently, but their language which is based upon the fragment of mind that is the foundation of their thinking, is often incoherent to others.

What is not generally understood is the fact that each of these countless opinions are drawn from specific fragments of mind -- wherein, each fragment (of mind) is an integral part of the Whole -- and each fragment is created and maintained by the Natural Laws of Creation Which means that the opinion of each person has been pre-ordained by the workings of the Natural Laws upon their consciousness In the subheading entitled Jesus The (Law) Professor I explore the reality that what Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount was not an improvable religious belief -- but very much a vision on the actual workings of the Natural Laws that control every aspect of our personal development and lives Mankind learns and develops by becoming what he judges and condemns.
How?  Because his judgments and actions are returned back to him -- often in the opposite polarity from which they were originally expressed.

Holographically, as above, so below, and within -- and the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life as patterned at the right, is the universal reality of mind throughout not only all of Creation, but also within mankind's own mind and being From a holographic perspective, the Laws of Nature must maintain balance across the spectrum of Mind that is manifest on a Cosmic scale (see The Enigma Of The Twelve - And The Tree Of Life).
The Tree of Life is a perceptual pattern of mind as manifest in man, in the Cosmos, and within the Mind of God as manifest throughout all of Creation Allegorically, the pattern of mind is portrayed in the twelve tribes of Israel, as well as the twelve disciples of Jesus in the Gospel accounts As presented throughout this article, the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil), is the male and female outer left and right columns personified in the pattern on the right.
There is no such thing as a male or female Soul The Soul is a Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ) that is the perfect balance of the male/female opposites, as well as what is portrayed as the heavenly and earthly And it is this pattern of Duality that must be overcome within us, in order to inherit the Gospel promise of gaining entrance into Life And this reality is presented in the Gospel of Thomas in the 22nd saying where the disciples as Jesus: "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" To which Jesus replied: "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom."   When rightly understood, the merger of opposites is making reference to the opposite spheres of mind of the diagram of the Tree of Life at the right.

By enabling the Soul to incarnate within the limited domain and perspective of opposite spheres of mind polarized to different points of consciousness within the pattern of mind as personified in the Tree of Life, it is for the most part impossible for a soul-generated personality to recall the previous lives their Soul has lived, because of the major differences in the pattern of thought of each diverse point of consciousness within the Mind.
And while this great diversity of Mind is necessary in the evolution of Higher Intelligence, diversity can only manifest when each of the opposites are equally developed and manifest within the One Higher Mind.
And this can only be accomplished when each aspect of mind is permitted to evolve within the domain of its thinking and expression of Mind.

Using the example of Liberals and Conservatives: Each sees the world from a different perspective, because they are polarized to a different aspect or point of consciousness within the Mind of God as patterned in the Tree of Life If we portray the costal elites as liberals, they are not only out of touch with what is portrayed as the fly-over areas of the country between the east and west coasts, but they are totally incapable of comprehending the thinking of the more conservatives in rural America In our universities where Leftist Cultural-Marxism is the prevailing mindset, those who are portrayed as "snow-flakes" are incapable of hearing or understanding conservative thoughts and solutions.

In some things, the Liberal solution would be superior to the Conservative solution -- while in other things, the Conservative solution would be superior to the Liberal Yet, in all things both the Liberal and Conservative solutions would be greatly flawed because of their one-sided perception and solutions.   The Third-Force Higher Reality that must be developed and matured, is able to draw upon each of the opposite opposing polarities to arrive at a higher solution in all perceptive-positions and solutions.
But, this requires much development of not only each side of the mental-divide, but also the development of the Third-Force Balance that is able to draw from each or both of the conflicting opposites.
Today's conservative may very well lived as a liberal in a previous life of the Soul -- and vice-versa Conservative and liberal thinking patterns evolve out of different aspects of mind -- and it is through the interaction of opposites that growth and development is achieved Now when you expand this pattern to all realties of the diversity of human opinion and consciousness. the development and integration of the great diversity of the mind of man requires many lifetimes of experience that evolves the Soul to a state of Enlightened Being And only when the above is understood within the The Solution to the Enigma, and put into practice through the process of Triangulation - Overcoming The Tower Of Babel Syndrome - The Secret To Mental/Spiritual Growth, Expansion and Soul-Birth, can eventual Wholeness be achieved.    How many lifetimes are required?  That depends upon the level of development of each Soul.
Especially in view of the fact that some people can observe and learn from the flaws and strengths in others, while others remain totally blind to anything but their own partisan thinking Further, those who learn to use the power of Triangulation with others (see Using Triangulation - The Laws - The Spiritually Mature Mind Of Man), are able to make rapid developmental progress and achieve Wholeness by embracing and understanding the Natural Laws as they manifest among mankind And this is how the Soul who lived as the historical man Jesus evolved through all the stages of development and birth so quickly.

In their original form and format, the Gospels were an allegorical catalyst that when properly used as the Key of Knowledge, has the capacity to bring about the deepening, heightening and enlargement of human consciousness beyond what Paul portrayed as the "animal-soul" level of organic human consciousness which is incapable of comprehending man's higher Soul-Reality, the spiritual meaning of the scriptures, or the Mysteries of God.
One of the primary and key statements in Gospel teachings is the reality personified in the words: "They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17).
And since the vast majority of mankind have no understanding of Wholeness as presented in these words, this article will explore both the causes of Un-Wholeness that personifies the vast majority of mankind, and how man must overcome and prevail over this inherent human condition that causes spiritual death.

To insure this body of spiritual knowledge was protected so it could be utilized by those who were the most sincere seekers, they therefore understood the importance of cloaking it in a manner that the carnal forces of this world would not recognize.
These same enlightened mystics also understood that the division and separation of what is allegorically portrayed as Adam and Eve, is representative of the divided condition of male and female within all of mankind and these outer realms of Creation.
This condition of division and separation is expressed in the Gospel of Philip in the words:  “When Eve was still with Adam, death did not exist. When she was separated from him, death came into being. If he enters again and attains his former self, death will be no more”.
Further, these same mystics who authored the scriptures understood that so long as man continues to exist in this divided state of male and female, it would remain impossible for him to comprehend his own higher Soul and spiritual reality (see The Fatal Error Of The Church).
Thus, when rightly understood, it is this divided condition across the gender divide of man and woman, that immerses mankind under an umbrella of self-ignorance -- a suppressed mental condition that Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness).
Which meant that before a person could even begin to comprehend this higher spiritual knowledge that is the birth-right of mankind as the divine offspring of Creator-God, he has to first escape the conditions that inhibit his development.

Mankind is portrayed in the Gospels as the lost prodigal son (see Prodigal Son) who has fallen under the control of the Citizen of this physical world -- aka, the Far Country.
Which means that you -- the reader -- are the lost prodigal son of your Heavenly Father.
That while in your present condition of limited perception and remembrance -- wherein, you presently dwell in what the Gospels portray as the "outer darkness" of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) -- you don't remember your Soul's more distant past prior to being born into your present cycle of birth and life -- further lacking the knowledge of your True-Self which the ancients portrayed in the adage: Know Thyself.
A divided and suppressed mental reality that Jesus made reference to in the Gospel of Thomas: "(3) Jesus said ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty"

The enlightened mystics understood that a seeker had to first begin to overcome their divided condition of mind -- and with the reuniting of what is portrayed as Adam and Eve within him, he had to begin the process of mentally and spiritually becoming fruitful and multiplying his own reality of mind and being through the nourishment of the fruit of the Tree of Life.
And it is the fruit of the Tree of Life that would enable the seeker to prevail over the forces that kept him a prisoner in this, the Far Country -- enabling him to return to his Source of Being in the Kingdom of his Heavenly Father which he, of his own accord, had originally abandoned (see http://GateOfEden.com ).
And it is essential to be cognizant of the fact that in accord with the parable taught by Jesus, mankind as the lost prodigal son at one time dwelt in the Kingdom with his heavenly Father which he (man) left on his own accord, before journeying into this, the Far Country -- bringing upon himself a condition of mind with respect to what Jesus portrayed as the "outer darkness" of mind and being.    

Throughout the history of mankind, what can be called religion has always been the tool of charlatan priests/clergy and despotic rulers to exert and maintain control over the lives of the masses of people.
By provoking fear in the people and the threat of eternal damnation in hell, the priests/clergy and despotic rulers were able to maintain almost absolute control over the people.
This was true when the scriptures were originally written.
Just as it remains true even today.
It is easily demonstrated that the scriptures were corrupted (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).
Why were the scriptures corrupted? In order to make them support the carnal and political agenda of the ruling classes.
That the ruling class of priests and secular authorities always corrupt the sacred writings, is a reality the authors of the scriptures fully understood -- and they therefore composed their sacred writings which we call scriptures in an allegorical format to preserve the true inner spiritual meaning from corruption.

This immutable fact of corruption, in conjunction with the human reality that so long as man remained in his divided and undeveloped condition of mind, that it would remain impossible for man to comprehend his own true reality as manifest in his higher Soul and spiritual nature which he remained ignorant of so long as he continued to dwell in the "outer darkness" that Jesus warned about Thus, the primary problem which confronted the authors of the scriptures is seen in the fact that it would remain impossible for them to convey to others who had not overcome their own divided condition of mind, the body of sacred knowledge they would need to bring about their own transformation and subsequent birth that was and is necessary to escape the ignorance of this world.
So the authors of the scriptures created their sacred writings and preserved their body of esoteric knowledge within the cloak of historical allegory -- and when rightly understood, everything between the Books of Genesis to The Revelation is an allegorical portrayal of how to overcome man's divided nature, and be nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life -- i.e., "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" (Rev 22:14).
And while the scriptures on the surface may appear to be a series of historical accounts, this is merely the cloak under which the body of esoteric knowledge has been preserved, and can only be revealed to those who are sincere in their quest to escape being a prisoner in this, the Far Country Therefore, the true meaning of the sacred writings can only be comprehended by sincere seekers who are willing to "...wash their robes" and have made the necessary changes within him/her selves to acquire the "eyes to see, and the ears to hear" what only the Spirit can reveal to the mind of the seeker.     

In the Gospels, the majority of people are portrayed as being "without" -- i.e., a term used to represent those who continue to dwell in the "outer darkness" -- and as such, their undeveloped condition of mind causes them to be only capable of being taught in the enigma of parables.
While those who have embraced the process of transformation were portrayed as being In The House (see In The House).
The Gospel accounts state that Jesus was only able to speak plainly to the multitude of hearers in the enigma of parables -- and it is therefore imperative that we recognize that Jesus did not, and could not, speak and teach with clarity of words and concepts to those who are portrayed as being "without" the House -- i.e.,  "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV).
The word translated "explained", in the phrase "And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples", literally translated from the Greek into English means to "unloose or untie" -- i.e., what has been "outside" the House.    The term "open and unloose" the mind, was also used in the Gospel as the path to entering the Inner Kingdom wherein the prodigal son was portrayed as escaping from the Far Country, and commencing his (inner) return to the Kingdom of the Father.
Which means that the above Gospel statement can be clarified to read: “Unto you [the disciples in the House] it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without [in the outer darkness of mind and being], all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12 KJV).
The authors of the scriptures fully understood the difference between the those who remain prisoners in the "outer darkness" of the Far country, and those who travail in TheWay and are able to enter In The House.   

There are many spiritual levels of believers and adherents within the Christian Domain.
The Gospel teachings of Jesus which were originally known as the teachings of TheWay (The Way), have within itself all levels from entry-level to a higher and mature expression of spirituality.
And while the entry-level is based upon faith and belief, the higher levels of spiritual maturity embody a Wholistic mindset and lifestyle necessary to transform the body-mind into a Living Temple that enables the Spiritual Christian to fully embrace the Pattern of the Christ, by symbolically picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay in Imitation of the historical man Jesus.
And this is why Paul portrayed the historical man Jesus as the first of the prodigal sons to achieve the necessary stages of birth to return to the Kingdom -- i.e., "...in order that he (Jesus) might be the firstborn among many brothers" (Rom 8:29).
Wherein Jesus said of his disciples when he portrayed them as his brothers: "...but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God’” (John 20:17).
Thus, while the entry-level Christian has few requirements other than faith and belief, the more Advanced Spiritual Christian has many requirements that enables him/her to enter  In The House, and fulfill the adage to be in the world and not of it.

The Original teachings of Jesus and TheWay was a system of Spiritual Advancement that brought about Wholeness and Completion.
While very little is expected of the entry-level faith-based believer, as the Christian advances, and greater Knowledge and Spirituality is attained and spiritually revealed to them, these more Mature Christians are required to live in accord with the Direct Revelation that has been bestowed upon them.
As stated in the Gospels: “That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:47-48 NIV).
Thus, with Spiritual Maturity and the Acquisition of Direct Knowledge from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God/True Prophet, having received the greater spiritual wisdom and knowledge carries with it the requirement to live in strict accord with that level of Divine Manna (Spiritual Knowledge) that has been received -- i.e., "...From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked”.  

This article is a Spiritual Abstract that is in summary -- and as such, is dependent upon the hyperlinked articles upon which it is built Mature Spiritual Christians are neither blind believers, nor are they ignorant of man's higher Soul and spiritual reality.
The very word Christian portrays one who has attained a spiritually mature condition of mind, and is Anointed (Messiah/Christ) and Enlightened  As stated in the article The Cross And The Seat Belt under the subheading, Religion As A System Of Education - The Two Ways, if the original teachings of Jesus and TheWay are properly embraced, then these teachings themselves are designed to bring about a Knowing and Enlightened Condition within the mind and life of the seeker/disciple

" ... Live Your Truth! Do Not Seek or Do Not Take Advantage of Anyone; Always Seek Mutual Consent with Everyone ... "
Mme. Blavatsky:

... TRANSMISSION, NOT REVELATION ...

More than one great scholar has stated that there never was a religious founder, whether Aryan, Semitic or Turanian, who had invented a new religion, or revealed a new truth. These founders were all transmitters, not original teachers. They were the authors of new forms and interpretations, while the truths upon which the latter were based were as old as mankind. Selecting one or more of those grand verities -- actualities visible only to the eye of the real Sage and Seer -- out of the many orally revealed to man in the beginning, preserved and perpetuated in the adyta of the temples through initiation, during the MYSTERIES and by personal transmission -- they revealed these truths to the masses. Thus every nation received in its turn some of the said truths, under the veil of its own local and special symbolism; which, as time went on, developed into a more or less philosophical cultus, a Pantheon in mythical disguise.
