Way of Unity

Should we start a journey or trip, let´s have the sun of Consciousness behind and shadows ahead, lest these become illusory enemies.

There are many paths, but only one Way–says an old adage.

Which Way underlies all paths?

There was a time when humanity knew a Universal Teaching, still able to perceive invisible spheres of the earth.

But with the course of cosmic seasons and human immaturity, the Teaching broke into thousands of pieces and humans became nothing more than hominoids, aspiring to be mature humans.

Messengers and prophets were sent to bring humanity back to reality, but it was not entirely possible. The time had not yet come.

Hence came the confusing collage now known as "religions" which hardly re-ligate humans to their divine origin. Otherwise, there would be no wars nor conflicts because of religion.

Judaism, Brahmanism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam have become shadowed fragments of a Truth that can only be lived in the divine spark that corresponds to each one, breaking all illusory molds, all beliefs and mental cages in the world, better when guided by the Teaching that encompasses all teachings.

Everyone has some truth, yet no one has all the Truth.

The only time in history Judaism, Christianity and Islam came together was in the Middle Ages, under the leadership of Spanish students of the Wisdom contained in the Scripture. 

Unfortunately, it was dangerous to pursue the Truth in those days and many were persecuted and expelled, like the Sephardic jews. 

But now the time is reap to go back to the roots, which can even be known in a more complete form.

We saw how the Ebionites of Qumran called themselves those who prepare The Way.

Now, that Way is precisely what was clarified by he who said:

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, and no one comes to the Father but by me -John 14: 6

Yet he never wanted to establish another religion and be worshiped as a god. There were already enough gods. Adding a new one would´ve been insane.

What did he mean then? That is the crucial task these days of complete madness.

The testimony of Jesus has been hijacked by many conflictive views which exclude not only the truth in other religions, but also the Teaching of the Gospels. 

The simple and plain truth implied by the Gospels is that by fulfilling all commandments Jesus became fully Human, and thus, divine, since a full Human is manifestation of the Son of the Eternal Father.

Such level of being can only incarnate completely in a fully developed human that can already access the Light of Spirit at will, having fullness of body, purified soul and spirit-will.

But it is still a process which is usually interrupted due to human underdevelopment, reason why humans barely manage to incarnate a baby soul and remain embryo souls without the Mind of Christ-Massiah.

With an impeccable life, Jesus became the human vessel for the full Spirit, playing the role of Anointed/Massiah, which was hinted at Deuteronomy 18:15.

Thus, He led the Way to restore the fragmented Soul of Adam, known as Son of Man since Daniel, and to which all human souls belong to.

Yahshua was the example of how the living Word of the Father manifests itself as Light and Life in Man, proclaiming the Name I am within the human heart (Exodus 3:14), acknowledging itself as Son by claiming Abba (Luke 17, Galatians 4:6).

Yet, it is only One Lord who does all this.

Is it not said the beginning was the Word-Vibration and that the Word became flesh?

Unfortunately, instead of following the Way, many worship those who follow the Way.

The emphasis on the Teaching was always to bring lost humanity out of idolatry, which is not simply worshiping statues and gods; idolatry is to believe that there are many wills, independent forces and enemies; that Good and Evil are separate; that Truth is opposed to falsehood; that my religion, tribe or nation is better than the other´s; that God does not exist, or does exist outside, in some heights; that the body and its impulses are bad or good...

All conflicts are rooted on thinking and believing in two, ignoring there is a third unseen force called Love that reconciles all conflict.

There is only One Will, One Beloved and Loving Essence, of which we can only perceive energy attributes and existential functions.

The Teaching summarizes the main ones: Father Will; Mother Light-Matter; the living Word of the loving Son and prisoner-rescued Daughter or human soul.

The great idolatric mistake of religions is to worship the fruits or energies of the Beloved and not the Beloved itself, as suggested in a medieval mystic treatise called the Cloud of Unknowing.

Temples and altars are built everywhere in the name of the "manifestations" of the Unique One, which includes everything and does not leave out the possibility of self-limitation, self-sacrifice, letting Dark Nothingness be.

The Instruction of the spiritual Torah comes to teach that the most sacred temple of such a Sublime Being, is the human body, made to sacrifice all animality.

Why is it so difficult to understand? Because humans are not yet fully human. If humans were fully human, they would be divine, image of the Whole.

All which is in accord to its essence is somehow divine, perfect, even a pine tree or a dog.

Thus, even those who hate the divine and religion are idolaters, since conflictive politics, destructive science, sport fanatism and other cultish hobbies are full of idols. These are other types of religions.

Divide and conquer is the satanic dictum par excellence.

A very misleading slogan, for the truth is rather: divide and you will sink up to the bottom in your own shit.

It´d be better to say: discern and you shall find the Truth, conquering the pain that brings you suffering.

When people thought that Jesus/Yahshua healed the sick and cast out demons by the power of Beelzebub, he taught an unforgettable lesson:

knowing their thoughts, he said to them: Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against itself falls-Luke 11:17

Was Yahshua against Satan and not divided against himself? How is that?

The religions influenced by Rome and Babylone state: "Of course, Jesus and Jehova were enemies of Satan, which is a very bad dude and had to be subdued"

Well... it seems he was not subdued, for someone is still making mischief by means of remote control from some infernal cage.

What´s Satan then?

The problem of idolatry is to grant power to what does not have any.

In the Hebrew teaching the Supreme has no enemies, not even the so called Satan or Evil One. Divine Good versus Evil is a childish belief introduced in Babylon in sixth century BC; a misinterpretation of the ideas brought by a famous prophet, Zoroaster.

Judaism simply absorbed such a misinterpretation when it was made captive by the Babylonian Empire.

Before that century, the Hebrew expression ha Satan simply meant adversary. It first appears in 1 Samuel 29:4, with the sense of adversary person. 

Sometimes the expression ha Satan appears, yet the particle ha indicates function, not personality. There is no such thing as The Satan; although it sometimes refers to residual intelligent energies that suck light when body, soul and spirit are not harmonized.

Satan can also refer to the race of fire-energy (i.e Iblis in the Koran) that was expelled from his heavenly throne when he refused to bow down to the new creation and future humanity, as told in several ancient sources. Iblis was condemned to live as Jinns on an earthly invisivle dimension as an accuser and tempting factor for those who are not stable in the inner path.

According to Henry Corbin´s studies of Islamic mysticism,  Adam acquired a biased nature when he incarnated too soon on earth, deceived by Iblis, who suggested the idea. 

Such acquired distorted nature would be the seed of the serpent that must be erased by the seed of the woman/holy spirit within each human being.

The Teaching of the Way shows that any of the forms of manifestation of Satan, play an objective role in the process of evolution, otherwise it would´ve never been allowed into the game.

These are the requirements of a creation with free will.

This is clearly seen in the Book of Job, where the Lord asks Satan to tempt Job in order test him. Why was Job tempted, being so fair and good? What was the point of causing despair by means of rashes, murders, huracanes...?

The Teaching has nothing to do with being good. The Way is to go beyond division. Only then can one love the Divine One and find out its Love has no limits.

This is something that the Yahwist prophets (Jeremiyah, Isaiyah, Eliyah...) had in mind when proclaiming the Ancient Way, instead of the killer pagan Judaism that had been generated:

I am the Lord (YHWH, Yahawah), and there is none else, there is no God besides me: I girded you, though you have not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none besides me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create calamity: I the LORD do all these things–Isaiyah 45: 6-7

Today this still generates confusion, to the point that many have begun to fashion the idea that the Old Testament is the work of an evil God, as the Gnostic Marcion held back in the II century.

The Mormon people go as far as saying that Jesus is the brother of Satan, since in the Book of Revelation, the Lord says: I am...the bright morning star (main symbol of Lucifer)

Hence some come to believe the New Testament is a new evil deception about Good vs Evil.

But sacred texts are to awaken a higher understanding, human understanding. They were never meant for hominoid minds. 

The fallen light dwelled in Jesus as much as in modern man. The difference is that the former transcended it and the latter doesn't.

Satanic is the sick mind that devours itself, seeing enemies apart from the own "selfishness".

Oneself is the enemy of oneself, Krishna tells Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita.

Therefore, the only thing that should worry us is fear and division. The offenders, sorrows and misfortunes can be allies when used to reveal hidden weakness.

A truth that the same Yahshua taught in subtle ways:

Since then Yahshua has Massiah [Jesus Christ] began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed ... Taking Jesus aside Peter rebuked him: "God forbid, Lord That'll never happen!". But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block, because you're not thinking about the things of God, but the things of men-Matthew 16: 21-23

In the Gospel allegory Yahshua is tempted by Satan in the wilderness. What does he say when the Devil offers all the kingdoms to him in exchange for idolatry?:

Only the Lord (All Being) you shall worship and him alone you shall serve -Matthew 4:10

It is the fulfillment of the first commandment given to Moses. And it is interesting to see how Jesus himself recites the Shemá prayer and the first commandment as described in Deuteronomy 6:4-6, answering the Pharisees. He was making clear how to fulfill all commandments at once:

Listen Ysrael [spiritual humanity], The Lord our Elohim [divine functions] is one Lord [YHWH, All Being]. Thou shall love the Lord [YHWH, All Being] thy God with all your heart and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and your neighbor as yourself -Luke 10:27, Deuteronomy 6:4-6

As we see, this was nothing new, but a Torah lesson, completed with the passage Leviticus 19:18:

Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself; I am the Lord.

Rabbi Hillel echoed that teaching in the first century saying that it sums up the Torah of Moses.

Unfortunately many forgot their Hebrew roots, and then: goodbye neighbor.

How is it possible that so many Judaisms, Christianities and Islamisms are against each other when they come from the same tradition?

Very simple: without the proper Instruction, the sick mind is unable to understand the Scriptures and misinterprets everything, changing what does not fit, throwing away the Key of Knowledge (Luke 11:52).

Interestingly, Eastern religions are less violent and more inclusive, and thus in some way closer to the Biblical teaching. Yet it does not mean they are better or that one should become a Buddhist or Vedantist.

There is the testimony of a Tibetan teacher who was taken as prisoner by the Chinese communists, and he could stand and survive the brutal tortures by seeing his attackers as teachers that helped him see his weaknesses, his internal reactions, being thus able to manifest mercy and compassion.

That, my friends, is to dwell in the Way. 

Obviously, the Buddhist mentality is different because it denies the existence of a Supreme Being with Will that creates and loves through man.

In that sense it can be said that Buddhism is not complete and remains orphan, as it focuses only on the impersonal side, the Mother, which in Christianity is known as the Womb of Mary.

Most interpretations of Buddhism have two blind spots: 

1)The belief that complete self-dissolution is necessary to overcome the pride, desire and suffering. The depths of the human being ask for understanding and dissolution of egoism, but this is not a nirvanic extinction.

2) To believe that one can make progress in the path of enlightenment without a Universal Loving and Creative Will. Even Buddha reached enlightenment by means of it. What was his "right effort"?

The first perfect humanity was made in the image and likeness of the Son, the Word of the Supreme and therefore the thinking hominoids now aspire to be no less. 

There are certain passages in the Buddhist scriptures that may be read in that sense. Buddha taught that the enlightened man is he who has overcome all ignorance after experiencing all. Yet it was not his role to teach the Integral Truth. Others came for such a task.

Anyway, it is undeniable that the path of self-knowledge taught by Buddha is shared by other versions of the Teachings of the Way shown by the prophets, since it is necessary for the abandonment of the idols of the mind and the heart, leavng behind the idolatrous religions that claim to be true without even understanding their roots.

Getting bored, depressed or seeing enemies, means there is no self-knowledge and the Word of Life does not come in, due to an excess of pride, self-centeredness.

As it was said:

Thou shalt not take the Lord's name in vain-Exodus 20: 7

And Elohim said to Moses: I am who I am-Exodus 3:14 

Only One can love and cry I Am in the Heart. Nobody loves, but the One.

It is not me who lives in me; it is Massiah-Christ who lives in me says Paul in Galatians 2:20

we have the mind of Massiah added he in 1 Corinthians 2:16

Which of course includes the Buddha Mind.

To follow the Divine Will and Light that dwells within is to watch, include and harmonize all conflicts, sacrificing all animalistic reactions, choosing to be Full instead of empty.

How to do that will be discussed soon. The Way has only just begun.

December is the point where Light is born from maximum Darkness.
