United in a Cosmic Body

Finally, we got to the eighth day of the Feast of Tabernacles, and to complete the cycle, here we have a few interesting quotes from the book The Year of Jubilee, by Thomas Jude Germinario [1]:

How could He who is without Sin have become (again in the words of St.Paul) the very embodiment of Sin, so that Sin could die with him on the Cross? He took all our Sin upon himself because he is the Body of which we all are Members. The Body cannot have corruption in one of its members without being diseased throughout. No man is justified by the fact that he does less evil than his fellow man–no more than his chest can be more healthy if his stomach is sick. Jesus laid down his life on Calvary´s hill just to make one simple statement, but it´s amazing how many supposed "Christians" still don´t "get it". Christ´s message was and is simply this: "There is no Sin but our own Sin!

The Law can be applied to no one but to ourselves.  Each of us is called to perform the Will of God in a unique and different way [...]

To assign "blame" outside of ourselves is to dismember the Divine Body. To exercise Judgement against another is to impose the "law" of Moloch, the devourer of innocent Souls. If we are truly to take up the Cross of Jesus and follow him, must we not take upon ourselves the Sin of our fellow man? Must we not recognize as our own even the evil ostensibly done by "others"? In no way but this may we realize the Oneness of mankind, the unity of humanity which is the precondition of the Coming of the Kingdom.

Edom represents the presence in the World Soul of the remnants of the self-justifying State of Mind which we know as Satan. Edom is the "generation" of pseudo-souls which, as Solomon puts it, are pure in their own eyes yet actually awash in their own filth. 


It was of this "generation" that Jesus spoke in his prophecy of the last things:

This generation shall not pass, till all these things have been fulfilled [Mathew 24:34]

In other words, the broken husks of the Fallen Angels must all find their way into incarnation so that they may be re-assimilated in the Body of Man. This is the meaning of the prophecy of Isaiah regarding the King of Tyre:

And it shall come to pass after the seventy years, that the Lord will visit Tyre [Isaiah 23:17]...

The number 70 in Isaiah´s prophecy refers to the letter Ayin. According to the Kabbalah, Ayin signifies seven universes of Chaos which were destroyed before the creation of our World. These seven inferior universes correspond in turn to the seven Kings of Edom described in Chapter 36 of Genesis. These seven represent the "generation" which must pass away before the Son of Man returns to claim his kingdom, the spiritual Kingdom of Israel. It makes sense, therefore, that the eighth King of this Edomite line would be a prototype of the Messiah. The name of this eighth King is Hadar, a Hebrew word which means "Beauty". The Kabbalah associates this name with the eighth day feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles, which begins with the gathering of boughs from the beautiful "hadar" tree. Sukkot is the festival of "dwellings" and the Hebrew letters of the name Hadar can be read as HaDor, "the dwelling". Since Hadar is the only King of Edom who is matched with a Queen, he aptly symbolizes the restoration to the Soul of its Queen–the Female Presence of God, Shekhinah. 

In our next chapter, we shall see how the ancient rituals of Sukkot express a formula for the balancing of the Soul´s Male and Female polarities and their alignment with the sexual polarities of the Godhead. Such balancing and alignment is essential to the Soul´s function as a Vessel of the quintessential Light. We will also learn how the rituals of the Hadar tree symbolically reveal the structure of the Tree of Life, the network of paths which the Soul must follow back to the Godhead. For purposes of completing the argument of this chapter, however, we need only recognize that the feast of Sukkot was, first and foremost, a celebration of that special variety of Self-Consciousness known as Vision. 



Complementing this [Male] transcendent pole of the Godhead, we have God´s feminine polarity, which we´ve characterized as immanent. In this aspect, She is intimately and palpably present everywhere in Her Creation. She "dwells" in the physical Universe (Hebrew HaDar, means "the dwelling place"), from the spiral arms of its far-flung galaxies right down to the core of its tiniest particles. Hers is the Glory which literally fills our World, as the prophet Isaiah hears proclaimed by the Seraphim who attend the Divine Presence:
Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of Hosts: 
the whole earth is full of his glory [Isaiah 6:3]

Acid Debts

Without doubt, life can be very sweet, but also quite bitter and acid, and with a lack of proper understanding, these can become an unbearable torment.

But we should not forget that acid fruits, such as lemons and citrons, have extraordinary medicinal properties. To begin with, they are rich in Vitamin C, which helps to keep the veins and arteries in perfect condition, protecting against the famous scurvy that decimated sailors in old times.

On the other hand, the acid of the citric disinfects and contributes to digest fats, improving blood and lymph circulation.

Next month we´ll see this has a meaning on other levels, since "fat" has always been symbol of impurity and "sin". 

But for now, with what´s been already said, it´s not surprising that the Citron tree has a sacred connotation in Hebrew tradition.

And the first day [of Sukkot] you shall eat from the fruit of the beautiful tree (Leviticus 23:40).

According to tradition, the fruit in question is the Citron, Etrog, which is one of the candidates to play the role of fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, to the point that some scholars deem the Citron or Etrog as Adam´s Apple, together with the Vine.

Well known is the fact that the Hebrew word for the fruit of the vine and wine, Yayin, has a value of 70, the same as Sod, Secret.

Interestingly enough, the numeric value of Citron, Etrog, is 610, close to the 613 mitzvoth or connections of Adam´s Soul, whose fragmentation generated  the famous "debts" or "karma" of humanity.

And as we will see, these links contain a message of great proportions concerning how the Messiah or Cosmic Man redeems humanity and which role play human souls in the process.

First of all, we need to realize that each one of us carries a definite number of "debts" because of eating from the Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge without eating from the Tree of Life, which brings Understanding. And these debts make us incomplete and lopsided beings.

But which debts are these?

–Debts inherited from ancestors and close relatives, starting with biological father and mother.

Family traumas that remain hidden manifest in the form of congenital ailments, diseases  such as cancer or multiple sclerosis and some patterns of unconscious reaction that remain stuck for generations.

The Lord is long suffering and of great mercy, letting go of iniquity and transgression and absolving, but by no means absolving the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons unto the third and fourth generation (Numbers 14:18 Jubilee Bible 2000).

See also Exodus 34:7 and 

–Debts that soul fragments of an already crystalized soul acquired in other lives.

These remain in the form of "undigested traumatic memories", which return over and over to bodies of akin vibration, until they are resolved, completing the understanding of the soul.

These debts determine life circumstances and  surroundings, and are also mirrored on diseases, vital conflicts or quarrels between close persons, such as parents.

Until these traumas are not resolved, the conflicts chase the person that perpetuates the undigested trauma.

–Debts acquired in the present life through bad eating habits and 
negative actions that can even cause the death of the soul.

Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin (Deuteronomy 24:16).

Behold, all souls are mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is mine: the soul who sins shall die [...] The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself (Ezekiel 18:3-20).

All karmic debts turn us into defaulters with regard to others and Nature, which is part of the Intelligence known in the Scriptures as Elohim, the feminine and plural side of Divinity, from whom all souls and Eternal forms of all things are born.

The fact patriarchal religions –Judaism, Christianity and Islam– have generated so many rivers of blood is due to the blindness with regard to the Divine Mother and her body, Nature itself.

We all are under this blindness, reason why the physical world has become hostile; the body of the Mother has become a Stepmother, and our soul, a threatening shadow.

This blindness makes many think it is unfair to be born with debts they don´t remember getting, since, why should one pay for what others have done?

And very few realize that this is to incur in a double blindness: due to our massive egoism, we are not only not willing to pay for others, but also don´t see we all are part of the same Being.

Love thy neighbor as thy Self does not mean to love others as we love our pampered ego, but to love others as "parts of ourselves", fragments of an unrecognized Being.

Undoubtedly, this is the true sense of the teaching of Jesus Christ, Yeshua ha Mashiaj, who is presented as taking upon himself the sin of the World.

But why would he do something like that? Just out of compassion? No, too simple.

In reality, the sins of the world belonged so much to him as they belong to the rest of humanity, whose Soul and Body are one. 

The Law teaches that the Messiah, Christ or Universal Man is the Head of Humanity (1 Cor 11:3) and He knew very well that something in the lower parts of the Soul of Humanity –his Bride– was not right, since a mental-emotional virus called "Luciferic narcissism" caused a mess in the universes previous to the physical one we inhabit, which inherited such unresolved mess.

Unfortunately, both the believers who claim the right to be called "Christians" and those unbelievers who reject Christianity, still don´t get why it is said a man took the sins of humanity upon himself.  The former still think forgiveness is a free favor or concession  that a benevolent God grants upon insignificant creatures, whereas the latter prefer to think all is a misinterpretation or just another concocted religious fantasy.

Certainly, all debts are forgiven; but only for those who recognize the divine organism and whom we are part of, living in a way that meets the highest demands. 

This is the challenge many refuse to take, in spite of "believing".

It is naïve to think we've been given a free life when there is so much work to be done.

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also rip (Galatians 6:7).

for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body (1 Corinthians 6:20).

Only by reestablishing all soul connections, debts gets paid.

Hence these were in ancient times expressed in the form of Dharma or Duty –for the Orientals– and judgements, statutes and commandments for followers of the Law as expressed in the Hebrew Torah.

Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Law, till all be fulfilled (Mathew 5:17-19).

Contrary to what modern Christianity teaches, the Law still affects us, soul defaulters, specially in its spiritual reading, since the letter kills but the Spirit gives Life

This implies nurturing and purifying the body, even taking care of what we eat, as we will see next month.

Yet it´s not difficult to realize those "moral and vital duties" have generated as much order as violence and judgement. In fact, nobody was nor is yet capable of fulfilling them all completely, except the Head of Humanity or Messiah, in whom everything has come to pass.

In relation to this point, there is still another important secret associated to the Hadar Tree of Sukkot, and an illumining text is reserved for the eighth day, which is tomorrow Saturday.

Tabernacles and the birth of the Messiah

As we saw in the previous article, the Hebrew word for Messiah, Mashiaj, can be read "there is Understanding". 

And Understanding is the consort of Wisdom because it reveals what remains hidden. In the Universal Teaching we´re concerned with, Wisdom and Understanding are the implicit and the explicit, the seed and the tree, the union of the intuitive right hemisphere with the logical left hemisphere of the brain, union without which there can´t be spiritual evolution.

Therefore, let´s make an exercise of understanding that may feed our divine soul.

Seven are the festive reminders that have always been celebrated within Judeochristianity, and these play an essential symbolic role, both in the Old and New Testaments, since these convey a message concerning spiritual evolution and the Messianic Era.

Displayed in order, these are: Passover (Peshaj), Unleavened Bread (Matzot), First Fruits (Bikurim), Pentecost or Weeks (Shavuot), New Year (Rosh Hashana) or Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teura), Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), which has special significance since, according to the Gospels, it´s linked both to the birth of Yeshua and to his transfiguration, which would serve as model for the future, the Messianic Era which anticipates its first rays.

Owing to the adoption of the Roman traditions which are alien to the Apostolic line of transmission, the Feast of Tabernacles has remained forgotten for centuries within the "Christian" world in general; although now it begins to be remembered with all its meaning, possibly because the energy of understanding known as Messiah begins to be manifested in those who thirst for truth, despite more than a hundred years are still left for the official entry of the Messianic Age.

The true significance of the Feast of Tabernacles has also remained hidden for many who celebrate it since centuries ago.

Now, according to Zacariah 14:16, there would come a day in which all nations would celebrate this feast. Of course, this does not mean all nations will come to adopt the Judeochristian religion, but rather that a critical mass of people will start to discover the inner divinity, incarnating the Messiah at different levels. As Yeshua himself manifested, many would be able to do the things he did, and even greater deeds (John 14:12). He was, of course, referring to the second coming, which is the collective arrival of the Messiah, foretold in different religions.

The first complete arrival materialized in the prophet Yeshua, and it seems this was already marked since the moment of his birth, which according to the Gospel of Luke took place during the Feast of Tabernacles, on Tishrei 15th, which is presently celebrated between September and October due to astronomic reasons. Particularly, this year 2016 it begins today, 15th of October.

The feast commemorates the eighth symbolic days during which the Hebrews –who were crossing the wilderness after their captivity in Egypt– dwelt in tents (sukkot) made with branches, where they celebrated with rejoicement the protection they received from the Divine (Leviticus 23:33). This rejoicement was celebrated with food and the study of the Torah/Instruction. The first day they only ate fruits from the trees, in clear allusion to the Tree of Life.

Over time, this feast began to take place in Jerusalem, where the Israelites had to go in pilgrimage in order to celebrate it, reason why the houses and inns were full.

Undoubtedly, the author of Luke´s Gospel had this in mind when he wrote:

And she gave birth to her first born and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn (Luke 2:7).

It does´t seen a coincidence either that the word used is "manger", which in Hebrew corresponds to sukkot, being a rustic dwelling. Precisely, the manger that our friend Jacob built for the cattle gave name to the place Sukot( Genesis 33:17), all of which is symbolic, of course.

Now, additional data leave no place for doubt to think Yeshua was born during Sukkot. 

First of all, Luke 1:26 specifies that the angel Gabriel was sent to deliver the good news for Mary during the sixth month, that is, in August, since September is the seventh month. 

Later on, we´re told that her cousin Elizabeth, who would give birth to John the Baptist, was pregnant since sixth months ago. And the author of the gospel was descriptive enough suggesting the month in which Elizabeth became pregnant, and he does it by giving specific details about the father, Zachariah; he indicates that while Zachariah performed his priestly duties belonging to the division of Abijah, he was told his wife would give birth (Luke 1:5-13).

In order to understand this, we must know the Biblical tradition, which states that the service on the temple corresponding to each one of the twenty four groups of priests was from Shabat to Shabat, namely, a week of service (2nd Chronicles 23:4-8).

On the other hand, the division of Abjah worked during the eighth week of feasts, that is, during the Feast of Pentecost (1st Chronicles 24:7-10), in June according to our calendar.

Moreover, we must take into account that one of the three extra weeks assigned for the priests during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost and Tabernacles respectively (Deuteronomy 16:16).

From here we can deduce that Zachariah went back home around the end of June.

Curiously, the Feast of Saint John is usually celebrated on 21 of June since centuries ago. 

And all seems to indicate that John the Baptist was born close to Easter, around March.

Therefore, if Yeshua was born sixth months later, it must have been towards September, time in which three feasts were celebrated: New Year, Feast of Redemption and Tabernacles.

It´s not surprising that in some villages of Spain the birth of Yeshua is celebrated between August and September. Very possibly this is an old remnant of ancient Judeochristianity that survived the cultural clean up that the Catholic kings, Elizabeth and Fernando, allowed to take place, moved by the Church of Rome and its thirst for power.

And if all this still seems not enough, there are astronomical data that fix the issue once and for all. 

It is not possible to understand the gospels without knowing ancient cosmology, which uses the twelve zodiacal signs as a cosmic clock. And as it has been transmitted, in those first centuries, the sixth month corresponded to when the sun raised before the sixth constellation, Virgo, the Virgin, mathematical fact that in those days took place between August and September.

This explains the famous prophetic message:

Behold, the virgin shall conceive and and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel (which means God with us) (Matthew 1:23, Isaiah 7:14).

The fact someone important would be born at that time was even known by the Eastern magicians, since the information was transmitted throughout different cultures.

Those who knew how to interpret sacred texts and astronomic signs, also understood that there exist assigned cycles for the birth of divine energies, and this is expressed symbolically.

Actually, the author of the Gospel suggest that the mother of Yeshua, Mariam, came from a priestly family, since he makes her recite a psalm (Luke 1:46-48), and this was not done by ordinary women in the Judaic culture. And those psalmic words, in the mouth of Mariam, come to express that the virgin is the divine soul or pristine consciousness where the Light of the Messiah/Christ must be engendered, bringing an intense delight, something for which one must prepare the temple of the body (John 2:21), which Paul called "temporal tent", since we must become living tabernacles (2 Cor 5:1-2; 1 Cor 6:19).

And let them make a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst (Exodus 25:8).

And the word became flesh and "tabernacled" among us (Juan 1:14).

Thus, the Feast of Sukkot expresses the moment in which Divinity manifests in the purified body, protecting it, since it serves as a "tabernacle" or temporal vehicle.

Only by means of a purification of mind, heart and body can one become aware of what is the inner Messiah/Christ. Until then, the divine watches us, unsuspected by anyone, as it happens in that enigmatic passage where Yeshua goes unnoticed, during the Feast of Tabernacles, to be precise, until he reveals himself, taking everyone by surprise:

On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out "If anyone thirst, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, "Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water". 

The seven sacred feasts take place in Winter and Autum, the two Equinoxes where the opposites are balanced, as Ancient Cosmology shows.

And if we pay attention, we will see that the life of Yeshua is painstakingly structured following these feasts, revealing their internal meaning: 

He celebrates the Passover following the Essene calendar, where he shares unleavened bread and wine, which symbolize his spiritual body and blood, as well as the literal and mystical side of the Teaching.

He dies during the pharisaic Passover, as replacement of the Paschal Lamb, which is an allusion to the constellation Aries, before which the sun passed during the crucifixion.

He resurrects on the first fruits, announcing the first fruits of a future Messianic Era.

He sends the Holy Spirit in Pentecost.

As for the Feasts of Trumpets and Atonement, what do they represent? 

And considering that the Feast of Tabernacles, the last, corresponds to his birth and transfiguration, what do these two moments represent in our life?

Let´s each one do the homework and ponder that.

For now we will proceed with the theme of sacred nutrition, during any of the following days of the ongoing Feast.

Conscious Feeding 2: Neutralizing the Serpent

I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves (Matthew 10:16 ESV).

As we´ve already seen, carnal-temporal existence is like living inside the belly of what traditions deem as Great Devourer or Beast, be it represented as a Serpent, Dragon, Wolf o whatever has teeth and bad temper.

The dense matter in which we move squeezes us like a Boa constrictor, ruled by the energy that lust for receiving without measure, and if it gives, it´s only to claim it back with interests, as our Stepmother Nature does, so generous and so cruel, depending on the circumstances. In this physical level all is measured and weighted in accord to the law of eye for eye and tooth for tooth (Exodus 21:24).

And as we can observe in today´s world, saving a few exceptions, both art, religion and science have degenerated into all possible forms of idolatry: cult of images, cult of the body, of physical richness, commercialization of violence with wars, bloody movies, politic-religious discussions, war against diseases that have been caused by unnatural alterations (pollution, pesticides, transgenic crops, hybrid fruits, illegitimate physical mutilations, etc).

Many keep wondering why so much disgrace take place. And the answer is rather simple.

First of all, the Beast does not like anything or nobody escapes from its stomach; it is even possible to lose one´s soul trying to escape, as it´s actually happening to human beings since the Fall.

Mechanisms of counter-evolution keep humanity in a state of daydream, within a Net or Maya of Delusion, even making us think that we make progress, that we wake up or are safe just by believing blindly in salvific idols, in evolution by means of reincarnations and other false promises.

It´s an old truth that was again exemplified in the movie Matrix (1999), and even more specifically in Dark City (1998), which shows quite a likely scenario where humans are implanted "false memories" that make them experience a succession of fiction lives, without remembering any of them. Living would be like being a taxi driver, then go to bed and wake up the following morning as a newspaper seller, while consciousness remains unable to establish a connection and a "dark void" feeds on our dreams and passions, in an artificial world, the one in which we often vegetate.

Something similar can be deduced from the judeo-christian Sacred Scriptures and the Bhagavad Gita, both of which lead to conclude that what reincarnates is not the individual person, but underdeveloped divine seeds and the unrectified fragments of the psychic soul that must serve as a vehicle for divine consciousness, but which unfortunately gets corrupt with vicious psycho-carnal habits that are recycled from generation to generation, bringing more pain and death:

A generation goes, and a generation comes...What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun...There is no remembrance of former things, nor will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after (Ecclesiastes 1:4-11 ESV).

it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgement (Hebrews 9:27 ESV).

It´s mostly a repetition of pain, vice and physic-animic death. Quite a sad condition for a being with so much potential. 

Hence it makes sense to speak of the salvation of the soul:

Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls (James/Jacob 1:21 ESV).

By your endurance you will gain your lives (Luke 21:19 ESV).

The personal psychic soul is instinctive-emotional basically and it represents a succulent dish, being a combination of energies that no other species can provide.

And such personal soul only begins to be rescued when it remains attached to the divine consciousness or mental soul known in Hebrew as breath or halite (neshemah). Otherwise, the personal soul ends up decomposed and recycled, while the divine breath returns to its source after psycho-physical death (see Ecclesiastes 12:6-7).

However, if both parts are fused together inside a physical body, they can turn the human being into "image of the Creator".

Only the acute and loving light of consciousness can rectify all soul parts little by little, getting rid of twisted emotions and thoughts.

By feeding on the light that grows with understanding, not only the vital spirit and divine breath get saved, but also the "personal imprint" that offers a unique path of understanding.

This is the reason why the conventional ideas on free salvation by mere belief, or a safe evolutive reincarnation, are a scam that only feed daydreaming. Hence they never bring visible results, leaving humans in a state of infancy.

Nothing can be attained without true understanding, which is the food of Being.

And such understanding starts by identifying in our daily lives the repetitive circle of vicious darkness, which, by the way, does not make the Serpent of Time less divine, but opposite to the positive pole of the Highest One, whose Will is to give Light, not to steal it or receive it.

The Law-Instruction or Torah teaches that by showing that the Limitless Being is Holy, Kadosh, which in Hebrew means "set aside" from darkness:

for it is written: Be holy, because I am holy (1 Peter 1:16, Leviticus 11:44)

What´s even more, it specifies the One is thrice holy:

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts, the whole earth is full of his glory! (Isaiah 6:3).

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty, who was, and is and is to come! (Revelation 4:8).

This makes us think in the famous hesicast prayer:

God Holy, God Strong, God Immortal,
Have mercy on us.

All of which contains a secret that deserves great attention:

By the act of stepping aside from darkness, the Supreme generates a "sucking void", which is the voracious wish for receiving Light.

At that point, Light and Darkness separate, opening duality. Thus, One creates the paradox of Two:

I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God...I form the light and create darkness (Isaiah 45:5-7).

The kabalist Isaac Luria expressed it very beautifully by saying that the Boundless Being (Ayn Sof) enters in contraction (tzimtzum), in order to open the womb where its Light can be received and shared.

If Light and Darkness remained forever separated, this would generate a conflict and tension that would destroy the very same Being. Hence not all ends up here.

There must be a Creation where Light and Darkness come together, in the same way the positive and negative pole are joined by means of a "resistor" so that there can be more light.

The Serpent is the fragmentation of reality propelled by the Void, and it introduces the negative element of Creation, generating an Abyss of overwhelming Imagination where the opposites (light-darkness, life-death, pleasure-pain, etc) give way to the illusion universally known as Maya.

Within the hearts of all living beings, resides the Supreme Lord, Oh Arjuna and by the potency of the illusory energy orchestrates the movements of all living entities like figurines on a carousel (Bhagavad Gita XVIII:61).

Presiding over my external potency the material energy, I generate again and again all these innumerable living entities, in accordance to the implication of their material natures. Oh Arjuna, these universal activities never bind me; I am situated neutrally and unattached to all these activities (Bhagavad Gita IX:9).

And such a divine Maya machine can only be overcome by an Intelligence that is so wise, holy and powerful as the Infinite Being, but also as a strong and sly as the Serpent itself.

Krishna and Buddha dominating the Serpent Kali

It does´t seem a coincidence either that in Judeo-Christianity that Mediating Intelligence receives the name of Mashiaj/Messiah, whose numeric value is that of the Serpent (Najash;ShJN=358), what indicates they have the same potential:

Between the Boundless Being and the Void, between the All and Nothing, there emerges the Tree of Life or Primordial Adam, whose first sphere or Crown (Keter) engenders the Divine Mind-Heart, which is the union of Wisdom (Jokmaj) and Understanding (Binah), right and left brain hemispheres.

Curiously, in one of its permutations, Mashiaj can be read as yesh moaj, "there is brain", namely, "there is understanding", which is realized in the Kingdom (Malkut), extended all over the earth, even though many don´t see it.

Without Understanding, there cannot be Wisdom, and therefore, no Love either, which implies sharing Light.

This is how the first Triad of the Tree of Life understands and neutralizes all duality, being the first Divine Manifestation.

By contrast, in the Genesis tale, the Serpent is linked to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, that is, a partial vision that sets the conflict between good and evil, pleasure and pain, light and darkness.

Actually, Knowledge (Daath) is the breach between Understanding and Wisdom, or the split between left and right brain hemispheres.

Knowledge without Understanding is precisely what led to the Fall of the cherub Lucifer, which tried to receive maximum Light without waiting nor listening to the humble voice of the Divine Mind.

And if we pay attention, we will see that this breach and dual vision dominates the superficial level of art, science and religion, whose followers and leaders keep attacking and demonizing what they don´t understand, since they remain under the dominion of the Serpent.

It´s therefore clear what remains to be done: making efforts to acquire understanding, and thus be able to receive Light and illumine the world with it. On the contrary, we will be feeding the Serpent, even if it seems the opposite.

Once the human being is connected to the Divine Mind and becomes again "trinitarian image or manifestation of the Creator", the Beast is completely neutralized by the invisible third force of Will, feeding back the Source, whose richness never gets depleted.

Very few have been able to unite the three forces in themselves bringing together body, soul and spirit. But without doubt, a clear paradigm of such deed is Yeshua, whose teaching shows all the aspects of the Divine Law.

Becoming the carnal expression of Divine Mind-Heart is undoubtedly what Paul meant by saying that Yeshua is the "image of the invisible God, first born of all creation" (Col 1:15). What is equivalent to deem him as incarnation of the Primordial Adam or Son of Man described in Daniel 7; the Divine Soul of Humanity that descends to rescue the evolving soul of the fallen Adam, which in the Gita appears as Arjuna.

And we should not forget that each one is called to be a mini Arjuna or evolving soul, since each human soul is an atom of the Great Adam, the Soul of Humanity which burst into millions of sparks when adopting the wish of the Serpent, as numerous Scriptures recall.

Failing to understand this, led many to believe that Yeshua/Jesus is God the Highest and that his images must be adored as any other external idol.

Unfortunately, this neutralizes the transformative effect that the Mashiaj/Christ must have inside each one, since such vision keeps the split between "outer" and "inner", and thus between Knowledge and Understanding.

How then can one avoid being devoured by the dualistic view of the Serpent?

By means of a humble unitary vision that crushes her head:

I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heal (Genesis 3:15).

A goddess piercing the serpent´s head, beside Krishna, who also crushes her head and bends her, turning Time on itself. 

When the dualistic center of pride and selfish passions ceases, who is left to be hurt and devoured by them?

The human being can´t be divine image if it´s not by becoming a "transparent vehicle" for the Divine Mind:

I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgement is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me (John 5:30).

If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me (Luke 9:23).

Oh Arjuna, this world is bound by actions except for actions sacrificed unto the Supreme Lord; being free from attachment perfectly engaged in actions for the purpose of sacrifice (Bhagavad Gita III:9).

Oh Arjuna, offering sacrifice in [self] knowledge is superior to offering sacrifice of material possessions; oh subduer of enemies, all furtive activities come to an end entirely by [self] knowledge...know that with [self] knowledge you will never be subjected to an illusion like this again; you will perceive all living entities in the soul and then in Me (Bhagavad Gita IV:33-35).

Thou shall love thy neighbor as "thy Self". I am the Lord (Leviticus 19:18).

Knowledge with Understanding of Life is truly Self-Knowledge, which implies the sacrifice of the tyrannical egoism in order to share Light.

By seeing life as a mirror and emptying ourselves from of divisive tendency, we perceive from the Eye of Unity:

The Eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your Eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light (Matthew 6:22).

Oh Arjuna, conqueror of sleep, behold at once the whole universe of moving and stationary beings situated in only one part in this body of mine and whatever else you wish to see. But with these present eyes of yours you will not be able to see Me; so I grant you divine sight; behold the omnipotent majesty of my ultimate transcendental power (Bhagavad Gita XI:7-8).

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Matthew 11:30).

Concentrate the mind upon me, apply spiritual intelligence for Me; verily you will reside with Me after this existence without doubt (Bhagavad Gita XII:8).

Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool (Psalm 110:1).

This does not mean desires and pains disappear from life. The exigences and daily challenges proceed. But nothing is seen in the same way. After all, what acts is the Maya of the world, while Being remains "holy":

Anyone who perceives the Ultimate Consciousness residing equally in all living entities everywhere as the imperishable within the perishable, such a one actually does not degrade the embodied self by the self; therefore reaching the supreme goal. Anyone who perceives in this way that activities in all respects are being performed only by the material energy, such a one perceives perfectly the embodied Self and the non-doer (Bhagavad Gita XIII:28-30).

The key is being able to live without attachment to the fruits of action, feeling each moment fully:

Surrendering completely all activities unto Me, with consciousness firmly established in knowledge of the Self being without any desire for gain, free from proprietorship, fight without grief (Bhagavad Gita III:30).

Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things [you need] will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).

When there is detachment, life is seen with Gratitud and the Great Peace arrives in the most unexpected moments. Then one can be sure who´s the window of the Eternal One.

Oh Krishna, greatest of all personalities, origin of all origins, Lord of all beings, Lord of all gods, Lord of the Universe, only you personally know yourself by yourself (Bhagavad Gita 10:15).

Now I know in part, then shall I know fully, even as I have been fully known (1 Corinthians 13:12).

Oh Arjuna, I am the Ultimate Consciousness situated within the heart of all living entities and I am the beginning, the middle and the end, as well of all living entities (Bhagavad Gita X:20).

I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. (Revelation 1:8).

And Omega cannot be other than the Omega of Understanding, something akin to what the visionary Teilhard de Chardin deemed as the Omega point or "tipping point of humanity", when a critical mass of humans find the divine within.

Omega seems really when all the evolving human souls that integrate the Soul of Humanity, are finally gathered back by its Head, be it called Mashiaj, Christ, or Krishna if you prefer. 

Such is the conquest of Eternity, over Time and Death.

Nothing feeds our spirit and soul more than understanding the Tree of Life by means of the Key of Knowledge (Luke 11:52), of which all divine messengers spoke.

Nevertheless, necessary is also to see what the Divine Instruction has to say concerning the food for the body.

And since the official birth of Yeshua is celebrated in Autumn, during Sukkot, as the Gospels specify–contradicting the pagan tradition–, let´s use this date to clarify several points in that regard, for Sukkot is a feast where food plays a great role.

Then, if nothing gets on the way, on 15-16 of October we´ll continue with this exposition.
