He Restores My Soul

by Raymond Phelan on April 10, 2014

12000020264 37beac2724 o 300x199 He Restores My Soul“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his name’s sake. (Psalm 23:3)

One of my favorite lines, this scripture is saying: take to the practice of meditation for purification of the subconscious, thereby come unto Christ (“name’s sake”) consciousness (Love) : (“He”) inner Christ (“restoreth”) heals separation, thereby is “righteousness” [click to continue…]

The Root Cause of all Suffering

by Paul Young on April 4, 2014

77 The Root Cause of all SufferingWhy is there so much suffering in our world?  It seems that on both the personal and global levels, people are dealing with much more than they are able to bear. Suicides are occurring at alarming and accelerated rates. Hopelessness appears to be the order of the day. In general, people are losing their ability to cope.

Unfortunately, we have not been able to find the answers to this question in the places where we are generally accustomed [click to continue…]

The Esoteric Meaning of the Tetragrammaton

March 23, 2014
Thumbnail image for The Esoteric Meaning of the Tetragrammaton

Western religion has a terribly inaccurate and limited view of the body, soul, and spirit. Such a view has led to the church’s failure to properly portray and instruct how we advance in the kingdom of God. Jesus plainly stated God’s kingdom was within us (Luke: 17:21), and Paul teaches us that God dwells within […]

The Sun God, Jesus, and Our Hearts

I am currently reading the New York Times Bestseller, The Secret History of the World, by Mark Booth. In the beginning of the book, he does a great job showing how ignorant our modern scholars can be when trying to explain what the ancients really believed spiritually. For example, in one passage he states that […]

In Tradition of the Gnostic Apostle, gnosis was described as experiencing the Divine, awakening to the Christ within. This article is about connecting with the Divine through the higher mind symbolized by the Only-Begotten Son. Gnostic Christian myth and scripture say we know God through the Son. Through the Son, God’s love moves from imminent […]

“Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho.  Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, and the walls came tumblin’ down.”  Don’t remember this children’s song?  Listen to the full version at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3QUS4B0iaM.  It is very inspirational – if you cannot find your way “over” the humongous wall in your life right now, try the spiritual […]

What is the Symbolic Nature of Paul and His Christ: Part 3

February 13, 2014
Thumbnail image for What is the Symbolic Nature of Paul and His Christ: Part 3

Was Paul’s Christ really the Christ of Orthodoxy? Most likely not. In parts 1 and 2 of this series we concluded that Paul’s own words from Galatians do not agree with the historical timeline of Acts. We also examined Massey’s reasoning for stating that Paul’s gospel had nothing to do with the literal, historical Christ […]

What is the True Symbolic Nature of Paul and His Christ: Part 2

February 9, 2014
Thumbnail image for What is the True Symbolic Nature of Paul and His Christ: Part 2

In part one of this series we learned that according to the timeline of Acts and Paul’s own words from Galatians, and the historic famine of 44 A.D., Paul’s conversion happened 27 A.D. Since most modern Biblical scholars place Jesus’ crucifixion between 30 and 33 A.D., Paul’s conversion happened before Christ was crucified. How then […]

Today’s very brief post will begin a series that will be a bold attempt to decipher the symbolic nature of the Apostle Paul. What does he really represent in the grand scheme of the New Testament? Although many Christians are blissfully unaware, the Apostle Paul is sometimes considered an enigma in the scholarly world. There […]

In Part I and II of “Who Are We and Why Are We Here? Meet Your Personality” we examined secular and spiritual versions of personality profiling, including Myers Briggs, several versions of the Four Temperaments, Astrology, and the Chinese Zodiac. Some were inaccurate and others left little or no room for spiritual transformation. In the […]

In Part I of “Who Are We and Why Are We Here? Meet Your Personality” we examined a “secular” version of personality profiling – the Myers Briggs program. We concluded that it was flawed mainly because it omitted spiritual growth. We will now look at a sampling of “spiritually oriented” personality profiling programs. We will […]

The Lord’s Prayer: The Essence of Divine, Cosmic Expression

This article opens with insight to the Lord’s Prayer, followed by “how to” on sex-energy transmutation, concluding with kundalini “birth.” Hang in! The Apostles (representing our inner seeking mechanism) went to Jesus (representing the process to Christ consciousness) and said: “Master, teach us how to pray.” “Life is a prayer”

The Biblical Meaning of Man’s Dominion over the Animals

People have long thought that the Bible’s creation story in Genesis is literal. Ancient Rabbis, learned scholars of the Hebrew language, have always taught us that those who fail to see beyond the literal stories miss out on the deeper spiritual meanings latent within the text. Those of us who are guilty of reading it […]

Tradition of the Gnostic Apostle: The Legacy of Christ in You

I have always had a passion for the Bible. My interest in Christian origins introduced me to the gnostic form of Christianity, which I’m convinced was the way it began. I have been taken by it and through it Christ is more alive for me than ever. What is written here will be elementary for […]

The Esoteric Significance of Jesus’ Inner Circle

Most Christians are aware of Jesus’ inner circle. They are the three that were closest to him: Peter, James, and John. But what is hardly known is why these three? It has nothing to do with Jesus favoring them. It has to do with the soul qualities that they represent and the role these soul […]
