Jesus, Son of God?


dreamstime_2364068

Sometimes, it seems that the more I learn the less I know.

Growing up in a religious Orthodox Christian family, I took all of the stories around Christ’s life as fact, the unquestionable truth. But the more I dig, looking for clearer understand, I find only a shifting foundation of sand.

Take for example the Jesus, Osiris, Dionysus connection.

Jesus, Osiris, Dionysus
Dionysus, a Greek God (1500—1100 BC) and Osiris, an Egyptian God (pre-2500 BC) were viewed as ‘mythical’ characters…though there is some evidence that points to Osiris as being real and that Dionysus was only modelled after Osiris. Despite that the two characters were used interchangeably in ancient times and in the 3rd century they were even referred to by the composite name “Osiris-Dionysus“.

At the time of Jesus’ stay on the Earth some 2000 years ago the story of Dionysus and Osiris were well established but nobody seemed to notice the similarities between the 3 of them??

A Closer Look
The following stories appear both in the Gospels and in the myths of many of the god-men:

bullet Conception:

bullet God was his father. This was believed to be literally true in the case of Osiris-Dionysus; their God came to earth and engaged in sexual intercourse with a human. The father of Jesus is God in the form of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18).
bullet A human woman, a virgin, was his mother.
bullet Birth:

bullet He was born in a cave or cowshed. Luke 2:7 mentions that Jesus was placed in a manger – an eating trough for animals. One early Christian tradition said that the manger was in a cave.
bullet His birth was prophesized by a star in the heavens.
bullet Ministry:

bullet At a marriage ceremony, he performed the miracle of converting water into wine.
bullet He was powerless to perform miracles in his home town.
bullet His followers were born-again through baptism in water.
bullet He rode triumphantly into a city on a donkey. Tradition records that the inhabitants waved palm leaves.
bullet He had 12 disciples.
bullet He was accused of licentious behavior.
bullet Execution, resurrection, etc:

bullet He was killed near the time of the Vernal Equinox, about MAR-21.
bullet He died “as a sacrifice for the sins of the world.
bullet He was hung on a tree, stake, or cross. 
bullet After death, he descended into hell.
bullet On the third day after his death, he returned to life.
bullet The cave where he was laid was visited by three of his female followers
bullet He later ascended to heaven.
bullet His titles:

bullet God made flesh.
bullet Savior of the world.
bullet Son of God.
bullet Beliefs about the God-man:

bullet He is “God made man,” and equal to the Father.
bullet He will return in the last days.
bullet He will judge the human race at that time.
bullet Humans are separated from God by original sin. The god-man’s sacrificial death reunites the believer with God and atones for the original sin.

Nobody Noticed?
The reason that nobody noticed the similarities between Jesus and Osiris-Dionysus was because those aspects of Jesus’ life were added hundreds of years later when Rome finally accepted Christianity and fused it with her other pagan beliefs.

Jesus Was A (Great) Man
I choose to believe that Jesus was a real person, a socialist, a rebel against a corrupt Roman-Jewish alliance and perhaps someone who through study and practice of mysticism had come to a deep understanding of the world, the Universe and our place in it. And from that understanding preached love and tolerance.

If we could follow THAT example, I think the world would be a better place.

The Essence of a Cup


empty-cup

I’VE COME TO UNDERSTAND that the essence of a cup is not the cup itself, it is the space within the cup. It’s the space that defines it’s purpose…to hold something without form.

Likewise, I believe the essence of the Universe’s smallest particles is not it’s electrons, protons, neutrons, etc. Their essence, indeed their purpose has to do with the space within them.

It’s About Space
If we consider the atom is 99.99% empty space perhaps we would see that our research at CERN is looking in the wrong place to find the so-called God Particle known to scientists as the Higgs boson. And that perhaps the God Particle isn’t even a particle at all!

Ask the Right Question
As a thinking spiritualist I find it hard to watch as science continues to overlook the most obvious question…what’s with all the space? Case in point this recent article: “A question of spin for the new boson” by James Gillies.

Where is Beauty?
To quote from Alan Watts’ book Become What You Are: “A symphony is not explained by a mathematical analysis of it’s notes; the mystery of a woman’s beauty is not revealed by a postmortem dissection; and no one ever understood the wonder of a bird on the wing by stuffing it and putting it in a case.” (p.61)

The purpose of the Universe and everything in it cannot be discovered by analyzing the cup alone. The key to understanding is to ask the right questions and look in the right place for the answer.

Seeing Is Believing


“The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.” - Luke 8:10

THE FURTHER I GO down this rabbit hole the more I see those sometimes archaic images, icons and parables, passed down through time for what they really are. All it takes is a bit of effort to see and hear the story these sometimes grotesquely out of place symbols are trying to tells us…to enlighten us, wake us up.

Wisdom
Case in point: Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. 

In 2009, on a visit to the Big Apple and on our way to Top of the Rock the absolute best way to take in the entire skyline of New York City BTW, we passed through the main entrance at 30 Rockefeller Square, the home of NBC.

As you enter the building peering down at you is a commanding low-relief panel carved into the limestone simply titled “Wisdom”. It was created by German born Lee Lawrie and is meant to represent the creative power of the Universe. The message underneath his spread fingers reads, “Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times”…two golden spikes extend his fingers as if to emphasize the potency of those words.

Wisdom

Words of Wisdom

It wasn’t until a couple of years later that I drew a comparison to some of the other work I was doing.

The Baptism of Jesus
One of the more popular posts on my blog was the one where I drew the comparison between the baptism of Jesus and the Mayan 2012 prophecy. Suggesting that the icon of the event could be a visual representation of the alignment of the the Sun with the centre of our Galaxy and that perhaps this alignment is meant to bring forth some kind of “energy burst” from the heart of the Milky Way. (read more)

The Secret of Sion
According to William Henry in his book The Secret of Sion, Sion or Zion is not a hill in Palestine but is indeed the name of the centre of the Galaxy. Without giving away too much of Henry’s brilliant work, the message we have been given through the eons most recently by Jesus, is that we are all Gods trying to ignite our light bodies in order to make the trip back home, to our “promised land” in Sion, that bulge of light at the centre of the Milky Way.

Based on his research he speculates that some sort of Stargate or wormhole will open and let us pass through it to the galactic core once we have successfully attained our light body. (I urge you to order the book to get the full story. It’s available on the Kindle from Amazon.)

That’s when it hit me that maybe those golden spikes shooting out of Wisdom’s fingertips where meant to represent the same wisdom or enlightenment represented above Jesus’ head at his baptism! But it wasn’t until I backed up about 200 feet that I realized what those ‘spikes’ were pointed at…

The Jesus Prometheus Connection
Prometheus seems to be the target of Wisdom’s golden rays.

When you take in the bigger picture (below) on the right you can see the statue of Prometheus directly beneath Wisdom and wouldn’t you know it…Prometheus’ golden, dare I say “light body”, is standing in a man made waterfall! I am confident that the same encoded message of divine wisdom is being played out in both images, if you are willing to see it.

Are these 2 images mirrors of the same sacred event?

Let’s analyze this for a minute: both Jesus and Prometheus are considered champions of mankind. Both were sent by their Fathers to Earth and were subsequently tortured, Jesus at the hands of the Romans attached to a cross…Prometheus tormented by an eagle who pecked away at his liver daily while attached to a rock.

I am not suggesting that Jesus is Prometheus or vice versa. I believe that there is a strong possibility that both of these stories have a much older common beginning and that there is indeed merit to the concept of a return to Sion, Zion or heaven through the attainment of our light body.

Through the Door
It gets better. I went back through my 2009 pictures and discovered to my amazement what had been sitting there all along. Take a look at the picture below:

Click to enlarge

Up in the roof of the lobby, is William Henry’s wormhole, disappearing into the heavens. Men of all sizes struggling in vain to build a scaffolding, trying to make their way up into it. A futile task without your light body.

See and Hear
Meanwhile back outside… if everything I’ve presented here isn’t enough to stir your curiosity, take note of the 2 reliefs that flank both sides of Wisdom.

Meet ‘Light’ and ‘Sound’.

 

As if to ask you: Are you ready to see? Are you willing to hear?

So, are you ready? The Nous Age is here.

God is Consciousness


The Creation of Man (Michelangelo)

The Creation of Man (Michelangelo)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.

3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5 – New International Version 1984)

I try not to quote too much scripture on this blog and will likewise keep it to a minimum as I complete my book, but I came across this quote last night and it suddenly clicked with me.

What I Believe
My core conviction, the belief that has driven me to write is that we are only part of a sea of consciousness and that “Universal Consciousness” is what we in the Abrahamic tradition have come to call God.

In the book I am using bleeding edge science mixed with, archaeologic discoveries and the occasional religious insights to make my case, so when I read the above quote it suddenly dawned on me that “the word” is consciousness! 

In the beginning there was only consciousness…and that was God (1+2). That consciousness (conscious observation) creates our reality (3) as quantum physics tells us. That the light or spark inside all humans is that light of consciousness(4). And finally, that whether we acknowledge it or not (the darkness) that light of God shines in us and through us into our space-time material world!

The Source
While I don’t (and never will) rely on The Bible as factual evidence of anything I feel that there are some stories, particularly in the old testament that give incredible insight to beliefs of a long lost civilization going back perhaps 15,000 years and more.

For the most part the Old Testament and Torah, are an amalgamation of many oral traditions passed down through the eons and brought together as a single work between 600 and 400 BCE during the Babylonian Exile period. While the New Testament is a hodgepodge of information spliced together by the early Christian Church which had it’s own political agenda. And in fact, many biblical scholars question that the Gospel of John was even written by John. Perhaps the true author was someone with a much deeper understanding of the way the Universe works and camouflaged it for a future generation to discover.

A ‘Nous’ Understanding
Many new scientific discoveries are pointing toward the idea of one consciousness. A consciousness that created and continuously creates the Universe and everything in it that we experience as “reality”. Juxtapose these new discoveries with the quote from the book of John and you may suddenly realize that we are coming out of the darkness, that the veil is lifting.

We Are All One


I find the current world paradigm of separation repugnant.

Here in Québec there is talk again of separating from Canada, thankfully no where near a majority (30%). When Palestine was separated in 1948 it was likewise the opposite direction we should have gone, but in that case it wasn’t up to the Palestinians to decide, Western powers decided for them.

What we really need is a movement toward ONEness…Like the Global Oneness Day October 24th.

Watch this message from Neale Donald Walsch

How Music Effects Us


You know how your favourite song makes you feel good? It’s based on science, a science of vibration and sound.

The Universe and everything in it is held together by a symphony of sound [1]. When we harmonize WITH it we feel great…when we’re “out of tune” with it we don’t. And if you’re out of tune for too long, you can make yourself ill.

We all know that matter is made of tiny atoms, electrons spinning around nucleuses at very specific “frequencies”. Have you ever wondered how sound outside the body effects us on the inside?

The New World Order


Well, the 2012 Olympics in London are officially over and wouldn’t you know…no new world order. The Anti-Christ didn’t win gold, silver or bronze…he never even showed up!

From the unveiling of the 2012 logo which some felt spelt out “Zion”, to the design of the one-eyed London Olympic mascots, the “rainbow riding” Wenlock and Mandeville (below), the conspiracy theories were running as rampant as competitors in Monty Python’s Silly Olympics.

Where Do We Go From Here?
With the no-show new world order at the Olympics I felt it was time to do a brief overview of the misunderstood idea of a New World Order and how the symbols, one in particular, may represent something very real delivered to us through time from an as yet unknown pre-historic people.

Novus Ordo Seclorum
Novus Ordo Seclorum is a Latin Phrase translated as “New Order of the Ages” or for conspiracy theorists, “New World Order”.  And it is usually juxtaposed with the Eye of Providence (all seeing eye of God) floating over an unfinished 4-sided pyramid.

This combination has been used on the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States since 1782 but is most famously displayed in the wallet of every American on the back of the $1 bill (below).

From my work in marketing I understand the power of symbols and this symbol is way more powerful than the symbols for Nike, Pepsi and The Gap combined.

So what does it mean?
The meaning of this symbol is open for interpretation and there are many. What I feel to be the most thought out interpretation comes from David Wilcock in his book The Source Field Investigations: The Hidden Science and Lost Civilizations Behind the 2012 Prophecies.

David explains that “the Great Seal may reveal a time-encoded prophecy… [about a coming] Golden Age…believed to begin in 2012.” (pg. 426) (Read the full interpretation in his book.)

Masonic Connection
There’s no doubt in my mind that the symbol is clearly Masonic, used by the men who laid the foundations of the United States of America to relay a message first transmitted by a civilization which pre-dates known history. A civilization which Graham Hancock goes into at great length and detail in his book Fingerprints of the Gods: The Quest For Earth’s Lost Civilization.

Personally, I’m not as convinced as David Wilcock that it’s a symbol of a coming worldwide Golden Age as I am that it’s meant to be interpreted as a personal goal or target for our own evolution to “enlightenment”. As David Wilcock eludes to, the open eye at the pyramid’s top is a clear reference to the pineal gland, which I concur is the seat of our connection to what he calls “The Source Field” and what I refer to plainly as God.

33 Degrees to Enlightenment
I will go into much greater detail in my book about this idea, but, the 33 degrees in Masonic hierarchy are a direct relation to the 33 vertebrae which start at the root chakra (Muladhara) and lead up to the pineal gland at the brow chakra (Ajna)…the following and final step leading to Samadhi or a “non-dualistic state of consciousness”. Likewise, I don’t believe that for the fictitious part of the Jesus Christ story it was a coincidence that he “died” at 33…and made his full transformation to The Light of the World.

Like the symbol of the all seeing eye, the Jesus story is meant to provoke us to our own Samadhi enlightenment. A target for our journey toward a personal new world order!

Doctors Don’t Know Everything
Doctors only know as much about the human body that can be disected from it on a physical level, but it’s the things that cannot be seen with the eyes or the edge of a scalpel that are critical to our existence here on Earth and our connection to the living Universe.

Conclusion
Symbols like we saw at the Olympics are prodding us along, tirelessly trying to wake us up to the supernatural powers we all carry inside of us. I believe we have the power to transform ourselves and in turn to change the world, guided by the symbols we are exposed to, toward what I call The Nous Age.

The Scientific Method is Flawed


I BELIEVE that the scientific method is flawed. The only thing that I know for sure is that I am conscious. Consciousness is what we have first, everything after that is questionable. Bringing that one known truth into a scientific world view is where the problems begin.

The Golden Gate Bridge


David Boullata at The Golden Gate Bridge in 2011

LAST SUNDAY IN SAN FRANCISCO the Golden Gate Bridge was celebrated on it’s 75th anniversary. Seeing it on the news brought me back to last summer when I was in The City by the Bay with my family. We walked across the chilly, sometimes foggy span, dodging (and being dodged by) other tourists on rented bicycles. The view, the wind…it was truly a memorable experience.

One of the most recognized landmarks in America, in 2007 The Golden Gate Bridge was declared one of the modern Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers and it is…but what’s with the name, it’s not Golden!? What I discovered while trying to answer that question led me to a mysterious connection to both ancient Egyptian mythology and Christian lore

The Name
According to Wikipedia, the bridge received it’s name from the strait below it that connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. It would be easy to assume that the bridge (and the strait) received their name through the Gold Rush years in California but that in fact is not true.

It was on the 1st of July 1846, 2 years before the first gold was even discovered in California,  that military officer and explorer John C. Fremont wrote in his memoirs about the entrance to San Francisco Bay, “To this Gate I gave the name of ‘Chrysopylae’, or ‘Golden Gate'; for the same reasons that the harbor of Byzantium was called Chrysoceras, or Golden Horn“.

Mirror Images
Now, mirroring old world places in the new world was nothing new (ex. New England, New York, New Rome) but I believe the new world Golden Gate has even greater significance than you may suspect, going back to biblical times and perhaps earlier than that.

This (above) is the Golden Gate in Jerusalem which looks East incidentally, as you enter the city through this gate you are moving West. This is supposedly the gate which Jesus rode through on what became known as Palm Sunday to Christians. According to Jewish tradition they are still waiting for the Messiah to arrive through this gate. The Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent sealed off the Golden Gate in 1541…though it may have been for defensive reasons.

While attending a funeral this past Sunday and trying to locate a water fountain in the columbarium where I was I came across an icon of Jesus, on the back of a donkey riding into Jerusalem through the Golden Gate. I didn’t understand the connection until I remembered my ancient Egyptian mythology.

The Egyptian Golden Gate
Ancient Egyptians associated the East with birth and the West with death, a point of view that most certainly came from the rising and setting Sun. Upon death they believed you would pass through (see: Book of Gates)…you guessed it a Golden Gate! Which brings us right back full circle to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.

It seems that the Golden Gate Bridge is not the only place in San Franciso with an Egyptian connection!

According to Secretsinplainsight‘s video on San Francisco from the De Young Museum and the Trans America Pyramid, to Treasure Island, Angel Island and Alcatraz San Francisco has an overabundance of Egyptian symbolism.
