This post is continuing an earlier discussion of learning to like what I don’t like, and as part of that applying Country Music to TheWay (link), all as part of a greater plan to bolster family togetherness through song, learning to apply concepts such as self-observation, triangulation, etc. Also, though this is not really […]
In a previous article I mentioned applying Country Music to TheWay. This article is a continuance of the concepts began in that article, that is, it falls under the umbrella of learning to like what I don’t like while exploring other concepts. I’m using the Texgesis of Country Music as a Way to use my […]

Working with the body’s energy system is important because the more one works with this energy system, the greater one’s abilities are in certain areas. The following topics walks through my first exposures to working with the body’s energy system in a group and […]
I recently wrote a letter to the doomsday prophets over at Family Radio in response to the following article: (http://articles.sfgate.com/2010-01-01/bay-area/17466332_1_east-bay-bay-area-first-time-camping) regarding their proposed date of May 21, 2011 marking the end of the world.

Hello Reader, either you have stumbled across this blog by what you may call chance, or you do or are beggining to understand that chance is merely a word to describe something that you do not know the root cause of, and therefore is thrown into the questionable category of your thinking, an ever so […]
“The Lord… allowed us to communicate those Divine Mysteries, and of that holy light, to those who are able to receive them. He did not certainly disclose to the many what did not belong to the many; but to the few to whom He knew that they belonged, who were capable of receiving and being […]
The majority of people, wise in their own estimation, follow minstrels and make use of laws, knowing that many are bad, few good; but that the best pursue glory: for the best make choice of the everlasting glory of men above all. But the multitude cram themselves like brutes, measuring happiness by the belly and […]
I recently came across the blog of Laura Wood which she has named The Thinking Housewife. One of her many articles which caught my attention was The Pythagorean Women. Knowing that I could provide the insight into what I portray as the Esoteric Feminine Mystique that our modern culture remains totally ignorant of today, I decided to send off the below email to Laura. As stated, that our culture attempts to recreate woman into a surrogate man — with the almost total loss of her true feminine strengths and powers of intellect and spiritual purpose — is perhaps the greatest folly of mankind today. The plight of modern man because of his suppression of the Feminine-Intuitive, has intellectually flat-lined him in the abyss of abject self-ignorance. And this is demonstrated in my assertion that our modern institutions forces women as surrogate-men, into a type of mental-burka that has been the detriment to all of mankind as a whole — as stated in my following paragraph copied from my affidavit provided for those who oppose wearing a seat belt (see Affidavit):
The proper development of the mind to eclipse what can be called organic human limitations, is dependent upon the interaction of the linear and intuitive spheres of mind. But when the intuitive perception is inhibited, and development is suppressed, even the linear is flat-lined from any development beyond what is portrayed in the Gospels as carnal and restricted consciousness. The linear mind of man remains limited in its development, because the intuitive remains infantile and shackled in a captive environment where it is only permitted to express itself in linear terms. While the inward looking intuitive has the potential to access higher consciousness and states of mind and being, it is unable to arise to its intended potential because of the shackles placed upon it by a thoroughly domineering and controlling linear culture. Like a woman who in many Islamic cultures are forced to dwell in an imprisoned world beneath a Burka — not permitted to openly express herself except when accompanied by a male relative — totally deprived of the ability to openly speak on her own behalf — the natural expression of the intuitive mind has been so impeded by our linear-driven culture, that it has remained undeveloped and unreliable as a resource (see Opening And Unlocking the Mind).

The below is a letter that I sent to World Net Daily (WND) in reply to their article on the movie Noah. In view of the fact that WND would reject the truth and the facts with respect to the issue of the wholesale Corruption of the Church, faith-based believers can find the facts in the below reply which I did send Larry Stone c/o WND.
The Question posed to me that is relevant to all women: Hello, i was reading through john 4:18-24 and I don’t understand what Jesus is saying on line 22 about the Jews. I see what Jesus is saying about praying and worshiping the spirit of god not just on that mountain or in Jerusalem but always being in a conscious connection with god wherever we are… but what does this mean for that woman who has five husbands and her current husband that is not her husband? I think that maybe the knowledge Jesus is sharing women is a way of conveying that despite her unofficial marriages to 5 other men, the woman and husband can still redeem themselves if they follow in the way of Jesus..

While I can’t say that Bill O’Reilly’s recent coverage of the Duck Dynasty fiasco was negative, he raised a number of points that failed to put the issues in their proper perspective. Generally, Phil Robertson was portrayed as a Fundamentalist who promoted outdated biblical morality. Yet, if it is true that the Gospels were written by Godly Enlightened men, can their Wisdom be outdated? Can Truth be outdated? Twice Mr. O’Reilly mentioned the condemnation of homosexuality as stemming from the Old Testament — and yet, it was the New Testament — 1st Corinthians — that Phil Robertson was in fact quoting in the statement: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. … Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
In light of the above profound warning to complacent believers who call upon the Lord with their lips, while failing to live in accord with his Commandments, a sincere seeker would want to know: How is that condition achieved where “…the male with the female, neither male nor female’”??? And, it must be noted, that unless this condition where the duality of male and female is overcome and wholeness is achieved, the Epistle of Clement which directly quotes the teachings of Jesus that were evidently removed from the Gospels (seeBibleCorruption.com), conveys to the believer that the Kingdom cannot come outwardly where carnal men look for it — because it is within you (Luke 17:20-21). Thus, where Jesus taught that one must achieve the next stage of birth to enter the Kingdom, this overcoming of the duality of male and female has little to do with the civil ordained unions of man and woman in this world — but rather, the subsequent stages of Marriage and secondary birth that modern man does not at all understand the higher reality of. But even more revealing is the similar teaching that has been preserved in the recently recovered Gospel of Thomas where the disciples as Jesus: “Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?” Wherein Jesus teaches when the Kingdom will come (within you): “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…” Which provokes the question: how can “you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female…”? The answer is found in what Jesus taught as Wholeness — and the fact that man and woman are half of each other, and must not only be reunited as ONE — but a Divine Marriage must be instituted and evolved where the two become “one flesh” (Matt 19:5; Mark 10:8) — physically, mentally and spiritually. And when rightly understood, these verses are not making reference to procreation — but rather, the total integration of male/female on all levels of their being in Absolute Oneness — allegorically reuniting Adam and Eve within the construct of the Consecrated Divine Marriage. Which means that Marriage itself is a Religious Sacrament — and the vast majority of marriages ordained by the authorities of this world, are little more than stated licensed sex and cohabitation.
When Bill O’Reilly first announced that he was writing a book, The Killing Of Jesus, I hoped that he would open the Pandora’s Box of the Christian world and reveal the original Gospel teachings that were suppressed by the secular politics of the Roman Church. The original disciples who walked and talked with the historical man Jesus daily, did not believe that he was God — but very much a true holy man who fulfilled the Royal Law of God within himself, and became At-One with the Indwelling Logos. Quoting from The Foundational Paradigm Of Mind And Being: Jesus was a man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism in the Jordan (see The Ten Words), the Church corrupted the very words of God spoken to mankind — because they were too carnal to comprehend the original teachings respecting the man Jesus who was in“…supernatural union of a man and God… In their eyes, Jesus of Nazareth was a mere mortal, the legitimate son of Joseph and Mary: but he was the best and wisest of the human race, selected as the worthy instrument to restore upon earth the worship of the true and supreme Deity. When he was baptized in the Jordan, the Christ, the first of the aeons, the Son of God himself, descended on Jesus in the form of a dove, to inhabit his mind, and direct his actions during the allotted period of his ministry” (Gibbon; The Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire, V.4, P.366). Or that Jesus was the example and pattern for all of mankind because in the original teachings of the Gospel, Jesus was portrayed as being “…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.” Hence “when [believers] thus fulfill the law, they are able to become Christs, for they assert that our Lord Himself was a man in like sense with all humanity.” (Hippolytus, Refut. Omn. Haer. vii. 34). That the majority of Gentile Christians were too carnal in their thinking, mindset and lifestyle to understand this essential original teaching of the Gospel, is because they could not conceive of the reality that the mind of man is segmented into levels of higher and lower fragmented consciousness that alienates man not only from the inner Kingdom, but the higher reality of his own soul — and ultimately God.
In 2nd Corinthians Paul confirms the reality that there exists deeper levels of consciousness within the mind of man, and relates the account of being taken up in spirit to the Heavenly Kingdom where he witnessed mysteries which are inconceivable to the faith-based congregation of believers. Quoting the article Opening The Eyes Of The Heart: If it is true that there are higher realities of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel) — and by virtue of their immaturity, the biblical authors were powerless to explain in detail many of the important Gospel teachings and concepts — then the spiritually mature author’s of the scriptures who do Know of these higher realities, remain virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do’s and don’ts, so that the immature Christians will be in a position where they are then better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay. To totally ignore these do’s and don’ts, without knowing the consequence of one’s choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded.
What this means is that Phil Robertson was promoting Gospel-discernment when he expressed the importance of maintaining biblical morality. In fact, if Phil Robertson was of a more mature spiritual understanding, he would have explained about The Esoteric Reality Of Virginity And Sex — and he would have enlightened the people about The Holographic Pattern Of Sex that is the basis of the biblical prohibitions and morality that the people in our modern culture find outdated. And while it is true that as a faith-based Christian that Phil Robertson does not possess this higher understanding that has been suppressed by the Church of Rome, it is also true that Phil Robertson is wise and insightful enough not to violate the do’s and don’ts set forth in the Gospels.

The vast majority of faith-based Christians, as well as the opponents of the Church, will immediately reject what is presented on the websites associated with this Blog as “far out” — and even the ravings of a nut! But is this true? Or, have these people ignored the warning of the Gospel that Spiritual Knowledge belongs only to those who are themselves Spiritual? I recently answered this question in a discussion on the Nazirene Ebionite Disciple Forum:
The Knowing and enlightened biblical authors warned that you will not believe or accept a single thing that I will write and say to you (see Mystery Of The Gospel)! The Lord himself warned that you would cast me out of your Churches. In like manner, it has been predicted that your clergy and authorities will condemn me as a heretic. And even suggest that killing me would be doing a good service. Why? Because we are all born ignorant and unknowing — and in your present spiritually immature condition, the biblical authors have warned that you will reject the higher reality of your own soul and the mysteries of the Kingdom as utter “foolishness”! And as the Apostle stated, so long as you remain in this immature and elementary condition — adhering to the dogma and traditions of carnal men — you will not be able to bring about the necessary state of spiritual maturity — and therefore, you will be unable to fulfill the intended purpose and objectives of the Gospel message and teachings!What are the Original Gospel objectives? As the lost prodigal sons, the Gospel Message was given unto man in order to empower him — enabling him to evolve to a state of spiritual maturity — which self-empowerment would provide the means for the lost prodigal son to escape the clutches of what is portrayed as the Citizen of this, the Far Country — thereby enabling the prodigal son to break free of the shackles of human suffering and spiritual ignorance, and return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination from which he originally emerged (see GateOfEden.com).That the Good News of the Gospel is merely the beginning, is seen in Paul’s statement that after personally teaching the congregation at Corinth — stating that “I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way — in all your speaking and in all your knowledge — because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed” (1 Cor 1:4-7 NIV). Which means that even though Paul taught and conveyed to the congregation of Christians all knowledge concerning what Paul portrayed as the “testimony of Christ” — to the degree that he attested to the fact that they “…do not lack any spiritual gift” — it is also clear that they were somehow awaiting for the “…Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed”. Which invokes the question: If they had already been taught the Good News in the form of what Paul portrayed as the “testimony of Christ” — and were not lacking in “…any spiritual gift” — then what, exactly, were they still lacking?In the second chapter of the very same Epistle Paul warns these believers who he himself had personally given all knowledge and testimony of Christ: “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 NKJ). Paul then goes on and warns these believers of a natural mind who were baptized and dedicated to Christ: “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1 NAS). Thus, this congregation of confirmed believers who Paul personally taught the “testimony of Christ” and the Good News, could only be taught what Paul portrayed as the entry-level doctrine of Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor 2:2), because they were not yet spiritual men — but rather, they were men of flesh and still very much “babes in Christ”. Paul then explains that: “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able” (1 Cor 3:2 NAS).What should be troubling to the modern believer is that Paul openly admits that the baptized and confirmed Christians at Corinth — people who had accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and received the gifts of the laying on of hands and speaking in tongues — people who were not taught by preachers and priests, but the Apostle himself — were not yet able to understand and comprehend what Paul referred to as the Mysteries of the Gospel of God. Moreover, Paul went as far as to state to the body of believers that if he was to even attempt to convey to them the true spiritual meaning of the Gospel, that they would utterly reject what he stated as “foolishness”. Why? Paul states that the Christians who he had personally taught and instructed into the Good News of the Gospel, were too carnal to comprehend the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God. Thus, Paul stated: “And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal…” (1 Cor 3:1-3 KJV).If it is true that Paul could not speak openly about the true meaning of the Gospel to the Christian who he had himself instructed because of their carnal condition of mind and being — to the degree that these same Christians would reject what an enlightened Paul knew as “foolishness” from their carnal perspective of self and life — would it be any less true that modern carnal Christians would be any different than those who Paul personally taught? Could modern Christians who are carnal in their thinking, mindset and lifestyle, comprehend what the very people who Paul himself taught were incapable of understanding?
From a biblical perspective: When Jesus taught the people using the enigma of parables that allegorically concealed what he called the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom, his disciples who had received all truths revealed to them plainly, asked him: Why do you teach them with parables? What they were asking Jesus is why he did not speak plainly to them? And thus, Jesus answered his disciples and explained:“Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, 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). Those who are “without”, are those who dwell in what Jesus called the “outer darkness” of mind and being (see Outer Darkness) — and because they dwell “without [in the] outer darkness”, they are incapable of perceiving and understanding anything beyond the base vibratory frequencies of the earth. The disciples, on the other hand, had abandoned the ways of this world, and were able to spiritually receive the Knowledge of the Sacred Secrets of the Kingdom. Instead of the word “mystery”, the NIV Bible translates this word the “secret” of the Kingdom of God — i.e., “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!'” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).
What does it mean to “turn”? From the perspective of the prodigal son, it is to turn away from the Far Country, and return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see GateOfEden.com). In the Gospel accounts, particular attention and importance is placed upon Children, who are often referred to as the “little ones”. It is warned that if we do not “turn about”, and become as little children, we cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mt 18:3; 19:14). In Mark 10:24 Jesus refers to his disciples as children when he explains: “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (NIV). The Gospel of Thomas saying 22 has the disciples asking Jesus: “Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?” To which Jesus responded:“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…”. Therefore, unless you understand and bring about the merger and marriage of opposites within you, it will remain impossible for you to bring about the next stage of birth that brings about the necessary Oneness with your higher soul-self — and ultimately with the Indwelling Logos and God.
Jesus did not — and could not — speak openly to those who were portrayed as being “without [in the] outer darkness”. Why? Because, the “outer darkness” is this three-dimensional realm that can be thought of as a mental-womb intended to develop and bring about the next stage in the birth process — and therefore, it would have been impossible for them to comprehend anything beyond the most mundane of earthly perceptions of self and life. In the same way that we were initially conceived within the womb of our physical mothers — where we were supplied all the nourishment necessary to evolve through the fetal stages and our birth into this world — when the womb of our mother was no longer sufficient for our progress beyond the initial stages of development, we were then born into what can be portrayed as the next-level of womb where our development can continue. Therefore, one of the conceptual-realities that Paul had great difficulty in conveying to the entry-level Christians, is the reality that this world is the womb of mother-earth — that each of us can be portrayed as a Cosmic Ovum Or Sperm — and that if we understand the Natural Laws of Creation and the purpose of this world, that our earthly-mother will supply all that we need to achieve the next stage of the four-fold process of birth — the final stage of which is allegorically portrayed in the Gospel accounts of the crucifixion. Because we lack the necessary mental-development to comprehend this higher reality, it was therefore impossible for the biblical authors to write even the next level above elementary truths literally.
Quoting from The Key Of Knowledge:If it is true that there are higher realities of being that are totally inconceivable to the mind of the undeveloped faith-based believer (see Mysteries Of The Gospel) — and by virtue of their immaturity, the biblical authors were powerless to explain in detail many of the important Gospel teachings and concepts — then the spiritually mature author’s of the scriptures who do Know of these higher realities, remain virtually powerless to do anything more than to provide the people with a list of do’s and don’ts, so that the immature Christians will be in a position where they are then better able to evolve to a mature understanding and comprehension of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay. To totally ignore these do’s and don’ts, without knowing the consequence of one’s choices and actions, is paramount to walking out onto a freeway blindfolded.
I always found it truly amazing that students of the scriptures could read the words of Paul where he states that the mind of the Christians who he had himself taught, would reject the truths pertaining to the higher reality of the soul and the Mysteries of the Kingdom as utter “foolishness” — portraying himself as an “ambassador in bonds” who was unable to speak plainly — and yet the implications of these words when read by the majority of readers, remain ignored to their own detriment. Further, from this perspective, the best that Paul could do for those who he portrayed as entry-level Christians who were “babes in Christ”, was to provide them a series of do’s and don’ts that would assist them in evolving through the stages of spiritual immaturity that made it impossible for them to comprehend the True Gospel Meaning and Objectives.
