A Most Enlightening Book

One of the most influential, inspiring, and enlightening books I have ever read is “The Cloud Upon the Sanctuary”, written by Karl Von Eckhartshausen (1752-1803).  He was a Christian and a mystic, and as such was totally and completely dedicated to our Lord Jesus Christ, which is self-evident in his writings. I present this here in hopes that as many people will read it as possible.  Reading it filled my heart with love, and filled my eyes with tears at the beauty presented in its pages.  The information given therein is invaluable to anyone desiring to consciously become One with Christ, and God the Father.  I have never found, in my own opinion and experience, any person more dedicated to Christ, nor any book more inspirational, save the Bible itself.

A second reason for writing this post, and recommending this book without hesitation, is to bring truth to the great lies which have been perpetuated regarding the “occult” Wisdom.  Karl Von Eckhartshausen was thoroughly trained in the arcane arts, the esoteric, the oral tradition, otherwise known as the “occult”.  If any of you have any doubts as to the character of such training and teachings, which have many times been called “evil” by political and fundamentalist church authorities, I am certain that this book will convince you otherwise.  If such a pure and wise Christian as Karl Von Eckhartshausen was completely familiar with occult teachings, then there cannot possibly be any evil in it!  Many of the mystical Catholic Saints were also totally familiar with the esoteric interpretation of the scriptures, and certainly none of you would call any of them “evil” (I hope).  At times in history, especially during the Renaissance, occult works were required reading among the Christian royalty, the wealthy, the accomplished, and the intellectuals.  It has fallen in and out of favor at the whims of society’s political leadership out of fear that a learned population would understand true freedom in Christ, and become a problem for them to manage according to their greedy and power-lusting purposes.

I hope some of you will at least skim portions of this book, which is freely available (for free) from several sites, and can also be cheaply purchased from Amazon.com.  I bet that if you do, most of you, like me, will end up reading the entire book, which is a set of letters written to the church, and is a very short, but truly enlightening, work.

Peace and Blessings to all of you!

MY VERY OWN PROVOKING THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 05/31/2015

It’s Sunday! Let’s shed a little Light on a subject, shall we?

The “love of money” may be the root of all evil, but I say that the lust for power is its core. Money is the greatest tool in the arsenal of evil, with which to enforce the will of those in power, upon all humanity. Their purpose is to keep us all enslaved, docile, and under their complete control.

The Bible’s book of Revelation was the seer’s best attempt to describe their mystical, spiritual visions to others. Many visions are common for all who walk the path of Enlightenment. These visions symbolize the struggle between the Light and Dark sides of each of our personalities, and of the societies around us. One of the greatest errors of interpretation people can make, is in trying to literally apply these visions to actual events and people. These visions are timeless and apply to all ages, they are allegorical, metaphorical, figurative, but NOT literal. The Jehovah’s Witnesses take, probably, the most literal view of the Bible. How many times now have they predicted the end of the world on a specific date, and been proven wrong? The Bible even says we cannot know the exact time, but that did not stop them from trying! This stubborn tendency, common to all of us, of attempting to do anything we have been told we cannot do, is really quite funny. We are very silly humans sometimes.

For those still anxiously awaiting the coming of Armageddon, it is already happening in the heavens of your soul.  It symbolizes the internal struggle of the forces of light and dark as you wrestle your way towards Unity with God.

Over the years, my understanding of the Beast of Revelation has solidified. At its head or core stand the great banking families of the world, and the financial institutions which execute their will. The rest of the “Beast” includes governments, political systems, economic systems, police forces, the industrial-military complex and all religious authority. This may not be, and probably is not, an all-inclusive list. It is through these, that the whole of humanity is enslaved and controlled. Our heads, as a symbol of our own personal wills, have been lopped off by the “Beast”. We either play the game, and grind out a living for ourselves, earning the money which will allow us to eat; or we just take whatever we want, completely rejecting the system, and eventually get jailed, or our hand chopped off for our effort; or we starve. This is the magnitude of control that the lust for power has produced. There are millions of people who willingly and enthusiastically support this “Beast”. There are millions more who grudgingly submit to the “Beast” out of necessity, but hate the loss of control over their lives, many suffering terribly. There are yet, again, thousands, maybe millions more, who have rejected the authority of the “Beast”, and incarceration, or worse, is the price they pay for their defiance.

These systems of the “Beast” have been presented to us from birth as the highest forms of civilization and pinnacles of human achievement.  We are taught that these institutions are to be honored and obeyed, and many volunteer their lives, out of a sense of duty, to the protection and preservation of these institutions. Yet these same noble institutions have been, and are today the very same which are responsible for all humanity’s wars. Those who follow the path towards Enlightenment recognize these same Powers as the very embodiment of evil.

As one of those who seek Enlightenment, I say that the love of money and the lust for power are literally the root and core of all the evil ever committed by humanity.  They simultaneously are the Will of God as well.  “What God wants, God gets” (Roger Waters, of Pink Floyd fame).  Prove me wrong, if you can.

How’s that for a Sunday sermon!
