Hello peoples of the planet!

This blog will be discussing the worldwide legend of the mill and mill stone,and what it all means.

First though,as promised in the last blog,we will continue on with the connections between the weeping virgin (Venus/Isis) and old father time. (Saturn/Satan)

Taking a closer look at the bible account of the Feast of Tabernacles or Festival of Booths…..Sukkot.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukkot

This festival is celebrated in the Hebrew month of Tishri,which corresponds in our calendar to late September till late October. (see the wiki entry on Sukkot above)

Late September till late October belongs to one sign of the zodiac,that being the sign of Libra!

libra-zodiac-horoscope-dates-1

If you’ve been following along the last few blogs,you will know that the sign of Libra is ruled by Venus,and Saturn is exalted in Libra.

https://www.quora.com/What-planet-rules-Libra

That alone tells us there is the link between the two,Saturn/Satan (Old father time) and Venus/Isis (the weeping virgin) in Libra.

The word  Virgin “Almah” in the bible doesn’t necessarily mean a woman who has not had intercourse.

http://outreachjudaism.org/alma-virgin/

The word “Almah” can also mean maiden/young woman.

The “weeping” in the term “weeping virgin,” can also mean a menstruating woman/maiden.(symbolism contains many meanings.)

It also means the end of the harvest in the signs of Virgo/Libra,hence the broken pillar on the statue. (Virgo weeps for the Sun/Mars falling back into autumn and winter at Libra (crying for things past/crying for The Sun as he leaves his throne at the summer solstice,where he lost his head in the personification of John the Baptist) as Saturn (old father time/grim reaper) exalts or arrives on the scene himself.

If you know the story of Isis and Osiris,you will know that she cried over a broken pillar also,that pillar being the penis of her husband Osiris.

Isn’t it interesting that another name for the penis is the “member” and Isis re”members” Osiris in the story. (more in a later blog)

The bible talks about the weeping women at Ezekiel 8:14

“He brought me to the north gate of the Lord’s Temple, and some women were sitting there, weeping for the god Tammuz.”

Tammuz is the Sun at the summer solstice and those women are again crying over the suns declining strength,or the softening male member after it being at the most high. (erection)

godhead-6-biblical-911-33-638

However while the Sun/Mars is in his decline,Saturn is on the up and up as is the feminine part of the cycle….Saturn and the virgin/maiden are about to get together,and this is celebrated at the festival of booths.

BA21

The Hebrew name for the festival of booths is “Succoth Benoth” meaning “booths of daughters.” (or prostitutes.)

http://biblehub.com/topical/s/succoth-benoth.htm

Daughters/women in booths/prostitutes?

Could there be some sexual shenanigans going on here with Saturn and Venus?

Yes!

http://biblehub.com/commentaries/2_kings/17-30.htm

The word “Benoth”  in Succoth Benoth means “Venus.”

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=r_VSAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA402&lpg=PA402&dq=benoth+venus&source=bl&ots=tv3qe7Z0gl&sig=fWeWSHuN_2sWT_fQU_PLGJu7Lsw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjw7OGbqInOAhVIJcAKHSmRDTQQ6AEIJTAB#v=onepage&q=benoth%20venus&f=false

Now we have the weeping virgin,what about old father time?

Well,the “Succoth” of Succoth Benoth is  connected with Saturn!

http://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Succoth-benoth.html#.V5M_V6KHhdB

(Interestingly,the booth or box shape is also connected to Saturn..see the cube of space in earlier blogs.)

James Ballantyne Hannay in his book “sex symbolism in religion” tells us that all nations round about were invited to the big one,the party of the year…sexy time!

Zechariah 14:16

“Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.”

The festival of booths was a sex festival in the sign of Libra,where Saturn and Venus are together,just as the account in Genesis talks of the tree of Knowledge,the apple and the fall.

The bible story has Saturn/Satan/Serpent/Snake enticing Eve/Venus to come and eat of the fruit! (sexual act).

It was the ancient Jewish version of a sexual free for all commune for a week.

It’s following nature and the zodiac cycle,it’s not good or bad….we only perceive them to be so from our viewpoint/indoctrination.

In Aries (spring equinox) the Lamb/Sun comes to meet his chaste bride/full moon dressed in white (for the 6 months of light)….however at the autumnal equinox,she turns into sexy Venus and becomes frisky Babylon the Great (for 6 months of darkness) until God puts a stop to her shenanigans and brings the balance back again.

The zodiac helps all of the riddles in the bible to unravel and…ahem…expose themselves!

The colour of Venus is green in alchemy….and with all that said….it sounds like it was a bit of a sukkot sizzler back then!

sukkotsizzle_65
Notice the girl in green (Venus) is holding the four species,the lemony looking thing is called an etrog,representing the feminine principle/breast/womb and the lulav in her left hand consisting of three items the lulav,hadass and aravah which represent the two testicles and erect penis,it is the opposite ritual from the spring equinox which is the pure and holy marriage…this festival is of anything goes. The virgin becomes the harlot in autumn time of the cycle…Babylon the Great in revelations the mother of all harlots.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_species

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=3zPv2auAVAYC&pg=PA150&lpg=PA150&dq=lulav-and-etrog+penis&source=bl&ots=Ychax6YrvH&sig=8itSYOUVmSAjXwVJrjI1eQrnyhI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwij_PbS-JPOAhVKIMAKHcJSA5QQ6AEIMzAE#v=onepage&q=lulav-and-etrog%20penis&f=false

Notice in the song above,they sing about shaking the lulav in six directions and then back to the centre…..see the blog “at sixes and sevens” for more on that.

Remember this,it’s only offensive to our sensibilities nowadays because of our indoctrination from birth,just as to a Mormon….drinking coffee or tea is a no no!

To a JW taking a blood transfusion is wrong!

Drinking alcohol in Saudi Arabia can get you flogged and off to prison.

Scientologists will never go near a psychiatrist.

Humans are so programmable!

Before this blog gets underway,I would also like to further expose the deceitful leaders of the JW’s,who call themselves the “Governing body.”

They’re not the biblical “faithful and discreet slave”,they’re very naughty boys!

(although not naughty in the sexual way above,more like naughty liars,deceiving their duped adherents….who receive a different type of shafting than at Succoth Benoth)

Look at the poor kids in this Awake magazine.

The Watchtower society proudly proclaim that all of the kids died “putting God first.”

may26-94-aw
This is but a fraction of JW’s who have died since the Watchtower society banned blood in 1945.

However this video shows in under 2 minutes the hypocrisy/flip flops and lies going on in the organization,this time regarding their blood policy.

Thanks goes to Cappy for the video!

In 1994 the Awake magazine said this.

“In former times thousands of youths died for putting God first. They are still doing it, only today the drama is played out in hospitals and courtrooms, with blood transfusions the issue.” Awake! 1994 May 22 p.2

Then four years later they say this!

Watchtower December 1st 1998 page 14 in the article “Defending our faith.”

“Jehovah’s witnesses have been targets of false accusations-bare faced lies and twisted presentations of their beliefs…The accusation that numerous children of Jehovah’s witnesses die as a result of refusing blood transfusions is totally unfounded.”

So there you have it,on one hand they are parading the fact that children are dying bravely for their stand against taking blood,and then four years later say that the accusation that numerous children die from not taking blood is “unfounded.”

Think of the poor people stuck in there,most ,but not all,blind to their organizations flip flopping and the fact that people are losing their life for a lie.

Yet the very book they claim to follow says this….

Matthew 12:7 “However, if YOU had understood what this means, ‘I want mercy, and not sacrifice,’ YOU would not have condemned the guiltless ones.”

Let’s get going on this blog.

The strong giant, Samson. Macmillan poster. Original poster for sale for £50 including VAT and postage within the UK. Image not available for licensing.

 

Samson (Mars/the Sun) is betrayed by Delilah the cunning/dark/female/eve/enchantress/the sinister/left-handed/siren/Venus calling him to the rocks of his doom and he eventually ends up down at Gaza (the goat) Capricorn…the midnight of the year.

The winter solstice is a time of merriment and parties (Christmas and New Year)….and on cue,there is a party going on at Gaza and Samson is taking centre stage.

Judges 16:23,24

“Now the rulers of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to celebrate, saying, “Our god has delivered Samson, our enemy, into our hands.”While they were in high spirits, they shouted, “Bring out Samson to entertain us.” So they called Samson out of the prison, and he performed for them. When they stood him among the pillars.”

And verses 29,30.

“Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other. Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.”

Samson literally brings the house down on all!

This is the midnight of the year,when the old day gives way to the new.The old year dies and the new one is born a babe…a cycle has completed,the snake has eaten its tail.

This gives us a glimpse into the workings of the cycle,when the cycle ends it is usually party time,people are too distracted partying to notice that the house is about to collapse on them,they cannot see the writing on the wall,Belshazzar did not take note at his party also.

There was another strange activity happening with Samson before his death at verse 21.

“Then the Philistines seized him, gouged out his eyes and took him down to Gaza. Binding him with bronze shackles, they set him to grinding grain in the prison.”

Samson grinds grain in prison as shown in this painting.

This grinding mill motif is seen in myths worldwide.

In the introduction of the book Hamlet’s Mill it says this about a particular mill that ground out three things.

Amlodhi (HAMLET) was identified, in the crude and vivid imagery of the Norse, by the ownership of a fabled mill which, in his own time, ground out peace and plenty. Later, in decaying times, it ground out salt; and now finally, having landed at the bottom of the sea, it is grinding rock and sand, creating a vast whirlpool, the Maelstrom (i.e., the grinding stream, from the verb mala, “to grind”), which is supposed to be a way to the land of the dead. This imagery stands, as the evidence develops, for an astronomical process, the secular shifting of the sun through the signs of the zodiac which determines world-ages, each numbering thousands of years. Each age brings a World Era, a Twilight of the Gods. Great structures collapse; pillars topple which supported the great fabric; floods and cataclysms herald the shaping of a new world.

The image of the mill and its owner yielded elsewhere to more sophisticated ones, more adherent to celestial events. In Plato’s powerful mind, the figure stood out as the Craftsman God, the Demi­urge, who shaped the heavens; but even Plato did not escape the idea he had inherited, of catastrophes and the periodic rebuilding of the world.

Tradition will show that the measures of a new world had to be procured from the depths of the celestial ocean and tuned with the measures from above, dictated by the “Seven Sages,” as they are often cryptically mentioned in India and elsewhere. They turn out to be the Seven Stars of Ursa, which are normative in all cosmological alignments on the starry sphere. These dominant stars of the Far North are peculiarly but systematically linked with those which are considered the operative powers of the cosmos, that is, the planets as they move in different placements and configurations along the zodiac. The ancient Pythagoreans, in their conventional language, called the two Bears the Hands of Rhea (the Lady of Turning Heaven), and called the planets the Hounds of Persephone, Queen of the Underworld. Far away to the south, the mysterious ship Argo with its Pilot star held the depths of the past; and the Galaxy was the Bridge out of Time. These notions appear to have been common doctrine in the age before history-all over the belt of high civilizations around our globe. They also seem to have been born of the great intellectual and technological revolution of the late Neolithic period.

Every cycle has a part of it where the old mill wheel falls off as it moves from age to age and the whole house comes crashing down.

The first wheel grinds out plenty.

The next wheel grinds out salt.

The last wheel is thrown into the sea where it causes a maelstrom.(Maelstrom literally meaning “mill stream.”)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whirlpool#Etymology

potc-maelstrom_6852

Strangely the book of revelation talks about a great millstone also.

Rev 18: 21

And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast [it] into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

It is the millstone that comes crashing down,causing a maelstrom that brings down the world structure of Babylon,(the feminine force in nature that has sold herself/prostituted/contracted herself out to her lovers),rather than the pure woman who holds the child lovingly in her arms.

Remember Babylon the great sits by many waters…not a good place to be when the swirling mill stone is thrown into them.

Again it’s not evil,just the contrasting force to the perceived (at our level) good feminine force.

Nature out of balance! (Koyaanisqatsi) and natures own way of bringing the balance back…everything has it’s tides!

Her lovers have also come to their doom,at cosmic and other levels.Adam and Eve are again collapsed and what was Malkuth becomes Keter.

The searched for kingdom now becomes the new crown (Malkuth means kingdom and Keter means crown).

(Seek first the kingdom,then you shall receive your crown and become Kings and Priests)

Adam and Eve are the two pillars on the tree of life which are collapsed for the new Adam and Eve (male and female polarities) to take their place,as they go to the new tree of life.

Anybody that watched the film “Knowing” (gnosis) will understand that is what the ending is showing.

The older order is collapsed and the new polarities go to the new Eden.

This is what Aleister Crowley means when he says this.

“By a flick of the wrist, she can be transmuted to appear as the original Yod, and repeat the whole process from the beginning.”

Notice he says this at the bottom of the page.

The fool tarot card in the Thoth deck has the fool coming out from the 3 swirls. (the final “Heh” swirl becomes the new kingdom in his heart.

Fool
The three large swirls are the swirls caused by the three “mill stones” of the age which gives birth to him. The fool is the new child born to us,the same child as held in the arms of the woman with the twelve stars in revelation…foolish/childlike,yet full of vigour as the new dawn has arrived.

This legend of the mill/potters wheel is told throughout the world (Also think of Judas buried in the potters field)

Let’s have a look at some of the legends.

Notice again the three mills…wealth,salt and maelstrom.

The Mill of Wealth

King Fróði of Denmark is renowned for his peace and his wealth. He buys two strong slave girls Fenja and Menja from Sweden. The quernstones that are to form Grotti are found in Denmark and are given to Fróði by a man with a giant’s name (Hengikjøptr) (SnE). In Grs 10–12 Fenja and Menja claim to have discovered these millstones long ago. They caused earthquakes when they dislodged the stones from the earth. Grotti would produce whatever the grinder bade. No one but Fenja and Menja was strong enough to turn it.

Odense Braun (1)

Fróði made the giantesses grind gold, peace and prosperity. He granted them almost no rest. They sang Grottasøngr as they worked. Furious at Fróði’s cruelty to them they ground out an army, and a sea-king Mýsingr came and slew Fróði (SnE); in Grs there is merely a foretelling of Fróði’s overthrow. The quern breaks, and the milling must stop (Grs). The end of Fróði’s reign is marked by thunderings and lightnings, earthquakes, the disappearance of the sun, and the upsetting of prognostications.  Thus Fróði’s peace came to an end.

The Salt Mill
Mýsingr takes Grotti, Fenja and Menja. He bids them grind salt. They grind until the excess of salt sinks the ship. This causes the sea’s saltiness.

The Whirlpool Mill
There is now a whirlpool where the sea fell into the eye of the quern. Comparable are traditions about the Mælström, which was regarded as a ‘grinder of ships’, if not a mill.
Of the three motifs, the poem contains only the first; the salt mill and the whirlpool mill may be later additions of common folk tales to the myth. However, the poem focuses on the demise of Frodi after the cracking of the stone, and may have excluded these elements deliberately.
The final whirlpool mill grinding the ships is alluded to in the book of revelation.

“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,
    where all who had ships on the sea
    became rich through her wealth!
In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’

These three whirlpool/millstones/rotating forces are those represented by the 3 swirling forces at Newgrange.

9bd19f4b3fdb9ad916651355e0a4d43aKether or “the new treetop in the next tree of life” is brought about by the three rings/millstones.

Kether is the new “fool” who comes out of the darkness/womb of the three feminine forces.

Remember the feminine part of the year is ruled by Saturn (hence the dark Satanic mills of Blake) and in the darkest part of the daily/yearly/great yearly cycle the new day arrives,(although not dawn). This dark time when the sun is present but not yet active is the parousia…it is alongside us but not yet in power.

These three dark satanic mills give birth to the New Jerusalem/the new child!

“And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/And_did_those_feet_in_ancient_time#.22Dark_Satanic_Mills.22

Read through the wiki page above and notice that Blake is alluding to more than just the mills of England’s industrial age.

Particularly this passage.

“An alternative theory is that Blake is referring to a mystical concept within his own mythology related to the ancient history of England. Satan’s “mills” are referred to repeatedly in the main poem, and are first described in words which suggest neither industrialism nor ancient megaliths, but rather something more abstract: “the starry Mills of Satan/ Are built beneath the earth and waters of the Mundane Shell…To Mortals thy Mills seem everything, and the Harrow of Shaddai / A scheme of human conduct invisible and incomprehensible”.

Milton_a_Poem,_copy_C,_object_4_(Bentley_4,_Erdman_6,_Keynes_4)_detail-a

Do you grasp what Blake is saying?He is referring to these three sisters/forces…Ain/Ain Soph/Ain Soph Aur…in the stars they are grinding out plenty,on the earth grinding out salt (the salt of the earth) and finally the maelstrom of the sea mill,which grinds out the old and births the new!

Jesus uses the imagery of the millstone being thrown into the sea also at Matthew 18:6

“If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Old father time/Saturn/Satan the ruler of this world,is the one in the wheels within wheels……Saturn truly is the Lord Of The Rings!

Shaddai is Saturn/Satan the shady one…the shadow,who gives the gift of light to all mankind at the winter solstice in the form of Santa giving us the gift of the new Messiah…Jesus at Christmas,the darkest time of the year. Ho Ho Ho!

If any of this makes any sense to you,please,will you explain it to me!….he he!

In the Country of the Blind….

The one eyed man is king!

In this blog we will find out about Dhritarashtra (the blind king in the Bhagavad Gita) and what he symbolizes.

I also speak about my former blindness as a Jehovah’s witness and yet thinking my eyes were wide open at the time.

And what it means to have a simple or single eye.

 

King James Bible
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Matthew 6:22

Hello fellow peoples of the planet!

I thank you for visiting my wee blog.

Before this blog gets going however………

At the end of the previous blog I said that “Old Man Thames” was “Old man Tammuz” (Thomas) or “Old Father Time” who is in fact Saturn.

Adding further on to that,there is also a part of the Thames river that is called the River “Isis.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Isis

And yet again there you have another coincidence,why?

Because Old Father Time (Saturn/Tammuz/Thames) and Isis/Venus/Mary (the eternal virgin) are connected and linked.

img_8722

img_5389
Old Father Time with his scythe,he is the grim reaper (hence his link as being the god of agriculture) and the virgin who is also linked to reaping and the harvest as the young virgins go out to bring in the harvest in the sign of Virgo in August/September.

Why is Isis or the virgin weeping?…more in a later blog.

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=father+time+weeping+virgin&biw=1536&bih=732&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi5_O61h8_KAhWFWRQKHSqbDGYQ_AUIBigA&dpr=1.25

It is not a coincidence that the Thames has a stretch of water called the Isis because they are linked.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Isis#History

https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090227120732AA8Zwxe

Old Father Time is Saturn or Satan,linked with the elements earth and water…the feminine elements that correspond to the female and winter/night/darkness/material/dense/cold part of nature.

Earth and Water can also be represented by the land(earth) and the sea(water) and symbolized by the downward facing triangles.

2367d9637c5577a351e112d5d2825914

This is what is being represented by the Thames and Isis rivers and father time and the weeping virgin……earth and water…or matter…and Saturn is the lord of matter….or as the bible says it….the ruler of this world.

In the book of Revelation chapter 10:2 we have another symbol of the two lower elements.

“He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land.”

Isis is also Mare and Mare/Mary is the sea as in Weston-super-Mare.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weston-super-Mare

And Mary or Isis (the virgin) is connected to Saturn/Satan/Old Father Time through law.

Mari-time law…….Mari=Mary/sea/water and Time=Saturn.

In the sign of Libra the two meet also…Venus rules Libra and Saturn is exalted in Libra.

Libra is connected with law….the symbol of courts are the scales of justice and the scales of Libra,weights and measures and balance,then you have Venus on the roof holding the scales,Saturn the tester is represented by the judge…old father time,the devils advocate, saturnine procedures in court,while wearing the long white wig just as Saturn has his long white hair.

In the Garden of Eden,Satan and the virgin are together,Saturn and Virgo

And if you look back a couple of blogs I gave a list of correspondences in the terms and words connecting money and water.

It is Mari-Time law and the law of the sea.

Saturn rules Capricorn symbolized by the sea-goat……again the two elements earth and water.

Goat=earth/Saturn/Chronos and Fish=sea/water/Isis.

il_570xN.368473591_tvd0
AGAIN EARTH AND WATER ARE REPRESENTED IN THE SEA-GOAT OF CAPRICORN. ALSO THE VIRGIN AND SATURN BECAUSE THE SEA GOAT IS BOTH MARY/MARE/SEA AND THE GOAT IS SATURN/SATAN.

http://www.proto-english.org/l10.html

In horror films the two are linked also,think of Satanic/Saturnic films there is usually always a virgin getting sacrificed in them.

We are in the lower part of our zodiacal journey or the two lower elements earth and water.

We are in the underworld,the world of darkness and illusion

We are the earthy man,we are John the baptist like and we need to discover the Christ within us that will lift us up into the “heavenly” air and fire elements,and when we receive that baptism we raise ourselves from the water just as Jesus did at his baptism.

John baptized with water and he was a man of earth,he lived in the wilderness and ate locusts….see the two elements earth and water.

Jesus baptizes with spirit (air) and fire.

John the Baptist says this at Matthew 3:11

“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

http://latindictionary.wikidot.com/noun:spiritus

Jesus moved from the “Son of Man” to become “Son of God.”

He was moving to higher awareness/consciousness/the fountain from inside was flowing.

In the psalms it talks about the same things.

Psalm 40:2

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”

We are literally in the mud and mire of our bodies. (notice the word Mary/Miriam/Myra in the word mire) the feminine part of the zodiac cycle,also represented by matrix/mud/mudder (mother)/Ma’at/mater/matter.

We are immersed in dense matter!

Yet the bible says we escape (as do all religious texts)…again in amazing allegory!

First though I would like to talk a wee bit about the awakening experience I had as a JW and how it led me to a bigger awakening.

Below is an example of a Jehovah’s Witness awakening.

http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/topic/5657027011411968/stepping-out-shadows

And a short video.

Once a JW begins to realize that the organization they belong to isn’t…what…they…once…thought it was……the scales literally fall from their eyes…..a wholly frightening/and yet exhilarating experience for those that go through it.

I had that earthquake.

Through the trauma it brought,it was also accompanied by a realization (real-eyes-ation),and ultimately a wisdom gaining experience…a new birth of sorts.

The first question I was asked by an elder and friend when I started to air my doubts about the organization was…“Where else can we go?”

Jehovah’s witnesses firmly believe and insist that their organization is the only true one…there is nothing outside of it except darkness,wickedness and chaos,and ultimately destruction.

Lets see an example of the kind of things said through their various magazines and books.

“Just as Noah and his God-fearing family were preserved in the ark, survival of individuals today depends on their faith and their loyal association with the earthly part of Jehovah’s universal organization.” (w06 5/15 p.22 par. 8 Are You Prepared for Survival?)

They are taught that if you are outside that “ark”…..there is no hope for you at all unless you are part of the Jehovah’s Witness organization.

Any Jehovah’s witness who happens to read this blog will have to agree that the Governing Body are God’s only true spokesperson on earth and there are no others.

Who really is the faithful and discreet slave?

However at the Australian Royal Commission (ARC) last year (which was investigating how institutions dealt with child abuse allegations),one of the Governing Body members (Geoffrey Jackson) said this.

He said it would be “presumptuous” to say they they are the only spokesperson God is using.

I believe Jehovah’s Witnesses have it wrong when they ask “where else can we go?”

Let’s have a look and see why.

They take that question from the scripture at John 6:68. (NIV)

“Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”

They reason that if they aren’t the true religion,none of the others come near to them because they alone use the name Jehovah and preach door to door,do not use the cross or believe in the trinity….So they will ask you where else can we go,thinking there is no other place to go outside their organization.

However did you notice the scripture doesn’t say where else can we go…..but to whom shall we go!

To which the answer would be “Christ.”

And this is where we encounter one of the bibles great secrets.

Colossians 1:27

“For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.

The Christ is inside you…..you have an inauthentic self and an authentic self.

There is somewhere else to go,and it is a place where you will never be manipulated or duped by charlatans such as the Watchtower Society ever again.

There is no true religion outside of you,not one.

However you have to keep knocking,exerting yourself to find the narrow path by awakening your higher self within. (Christ).

The single eye,the chief cornerstone,enlightenment…..

You become both a King and a Priest in yourself.The law won’t come from outside you as written on stone tablets,the laws will be written on your heart.

Jeremiah 31:33

Just as the sun rises at Easter and brings the barren earth to life,the Christ is an inner sun,that needs rise within you,to move you from the two lower elements,earth and water to the two higher or male elements,namely air and fire,the bible talks about it saying being caught up in the air.And the world being destroyed by fire

And when you do find that Christ within you as stated in a previous blog and repeated here,it will cause this to occur inside of you.

John 4:14

14 “but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

When a Jehovah’s Witness “awakens” and the word “awaken” is allowing your “single eye” to open…to see the light!….to see things as they actually are and not as you once believed,and it is one hell of a paradigm shift.

As said before it is harrowing and yet ultimately healing,it is also like an ascension or resurrection because you can see things from a higher perspective than you did previously,and you come to life and higher awareness…a new birth.

The keys of the zodiac,astrology,kaballah,sex and nature will open all the doors to the scriptures,myths,fairy tales,nursery rhymes and festivals.The more you study,the more you will see the links between them all,everywhere.

Even in films we find themes relating to finding this true (higher) self/Christ in you,and abandoning the lower self.

Freud called the lower self the “Id” and the entity known as the Id (“Id” entity or rather “identity”) deals with our basic instinctual drives,including the libido.

Some call this “base consciousness” and it is represented by the black and white floor of a masonic lodge….it is “black and white thinking” where one cannot see the grey areas which everything has,it is having polarized,superstitious and wave-like emotional views.

The floor of a masonic lodge represents most of mankind who are polarized,and content to go along to get along by following the crowd.They are moved like pawns on the chess board of life.

However the “Blazing Star” of the masonic lodge (Sirius) gives hope of light shining in the darkness,and those who follow it will gain enlightenment and find the Christ within,just as the “wise men”,”magi” or astrologers found the Christ by following Sirius.

NOTE THE STAIRS ILLUSTRATING HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS/ASCENSION/JACOBS LADDER/ILLUMINATION/IN REVELATIONS IT IS REPRESENTED BY THE MOUNTAIN.

Let’s see an example of this higher journey from the film “The Truman Show.”

Even the name of the film gives us a clue……the “True Man” show.

In the film we find the character “Truman Burbank” living in a totally fake world,a world of illusion.He is the star of a reality show where people watch his every move 24/7 and he is not aware of it.He is surrounded by actors who all play the role of friends,family and work colleagues etc etc.

However the “True Man” is stirring inside of him as he starts to question things and strangely enough one of the things that starts him questioning is a light falling from the ceiling of the large dome studio he is in.

What does the light say on it?

Truman1

The next thing that follows is that all his “friends” and “colleagues” try to prevent him from following his journey to enlightenment,and he even starts to question his own sanity.

When I was a JW all of my friends and family were telling me I was going insane for even questioning that the religion might not be the truth.

I even started questioning myself…….was I seeing things all wrong?

Why couldn’t anyone else see what I was seeing?

However by pursuing what I thought was right through to the end gave me such an awakening,such a paradigm shift even though it felt like a crucifixion at the time……I really have a freedom of mind I would never trade for anything,even though I know my reputation,name and character is pretty much shredded among my former friends.

It cannot ever enter their minds that the religion could be wrong….never ever….the fault always lies with the one who leaves.

At the end of the “Truman Show” we see how he has ascended,had his crucifixion and gained his freedom.

TrumanFree
Meet the ascended (again symbolized by stairs),crucified “TRUE MAN.” Which is the subject of all religious texts,and religious figures,whether Buddha(Buddha means “awakened,enlightened one”),Krishna,Christ.

We see the theme in other films like “The Matrix” where Neo Anderson (“Neo” means “New”,”Ander” means “Man” and “Son”…put it together and you get “New Son of Man”,and again like Truman,Neo finds out the world he is in isn’t real…it is an illusion and he has many trials to get through to gain his freedom from it.

It is the story of Christ….it is the story of Us,and the struggle to find the Christ within us,and the journey that begins with it.

Joseph Campbell recognized it and wrote about it,calling it the hero’s journey or monomyth. which just happens to have 12 stages,just like the zodiac which is a symbol of the journey.

http://www.movieoutline.com/articles/the-hero-journey-mythic-structure-of-joseph-campbell-monomyth.html

It is also seen in the “Wizard of Oz” and “Star Wars”…”Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings.”

We see it in the story of Moses,Joseph,Daniel and Jesus among many others in the bible,because it is again naturally in our collective psyche,and all cultures talk about it in their own ways.

Let’s have a look at another version of this ubiquitous story,this time in the Bhagavad Gita,and you may notice some similarities to stories and characters that are encountered in the Bible.

“Bhagavad Gita” means “Song of the Lord” and it a part of the Mahabharata,an epic Indian poem.

The Bhagavad Gita tells the story of the war between two groups called the Pandavas and the Kauravas.

mahabharat-kurukshetra-war-kauravas-pandavas
The Kurukshetra war between the Pandavas and Kauravas…….(light and darkness…left and right hemispheres of the brain)

The Pandavas are the five sons of Pandu and Kunti,Pandu is the phallus/sun and Kunti is the vagina (cunt).

The male and female.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandu

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kunti

Pandu means yellow….yellow like the sun.

Kunti means “lover of the sun god” (or penis) for the penis is the sun on a lower plane,as the penis brings life to the earth as does the sun….both are connected with “the generation game.”

The five sons of Pandu are the 5 aspects of divine personality that reach out from fourfold matter….as illustrated below.

leonardoThe leader of the Pandavas and the main protagonist of the Bhagavad Gita is Arjuna,and Arjuna represents the divine personality,that which seeks union with God/higher mind.

In fact all the Pandavas are aspects of the dormant “higher”or “good” parts of our personality,or “right brain” thinking,the right brain being the feminine receptive mode of thought where inspiration is derived from,the part of the brain that looks  and yearns for the moments when light dawns on it. (the lover of the sun god)

However their father dies (no higher thought activity) and they are raised by their uncle…Dhritarashtra who is a good king….yet he is blind from birth.

Dhritarashtra

He represents the highest aspect of the lower/carnal part of our nature…well intentioned,yet blind,just as those Jehovah’s witnesses cannot see the manipulation they are under,but yet they are well meaning people.

Jesus pictured it this way

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

–Matthew 15:14

The highest level of base consciousness cannot exceed the lowest level of higher thought.See the scripture below.

Matthew 11:11

“Truly I tell you, among those born of women (earth/water) there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven(air/fire/higher elements) is greater than he.

“Abiding in the midst of ignorance, thinking themselves wise and learned, fools go aimlessly hither and thither, like blind led by the blind.”— Katha Upanishad

 This is the allegory of Jesus healing the blind,people coming to a higher consciousness and being able to see clearly,awakening the third eye symbolized by dots or snakes on religious peoples foreheads.

Or we see it symbolized by oil being poured on the forehead.

People who are seeking outside for the kingdom rather than inward,are chasing illusions….for which religion is true?

In Christianity alone there are more than 30,000 differing versions.

King James Bible

Luke 17:21
“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

The Blind King (Dhritarashtra) also has 100 sons and these represent all the troubling negative thoughts we experience daily…anger…deceit…disgust…envy…greed…and the list goes on.

And yet they are the favourites of the blind king,they are the offspring of carnal thoughts……they are his sons after all.

So basically you have a story about light versus darkness,the black and white floor of the masonic lodge pictured above.

The Pandavas are the light and the sons of the blind king represent darkness.

Then it tells us that the blind king gives land to the Pandavas,meaning that the blind king is showing the higher self all the riches and desires that can be attained by the lower carnal mind…..riches,cars,big house,fame etc.

Duryodhana is the leader of the “bad guys” and also the eldest of the Kauravas,his name means “unconquerable warrior.”

Duryodhana is the deceiver inside us who keeps us wanting more and yet what we get is never enough,he keeps the desire insatiable/unconquerable.

Next Duryodhana gets Yudhishtira (another of the five Pandavas….the steady,balanced spiritual mind) into a dice game and Yudhishtira loses the gamble and goes into exile for 13 years…..in other words he gambled his birthright to desire and lost and found himself in bondage,until after 13 years something stirs and he wants his birthright back,and again challenges the blind king.

Can you see many bible stories in the above also…..Esau selling his birthright for a bowl of stew,Jesus being taken up to a high mountain and shown all the kingdoms of the world and tempted by the deceiver.

It is all about birthrights and claiming what is yours if only you can grasp it,however you have a fight on your hands as all the legends,myths,religious stories,and films tell us.

The Pandavas and the Kauravas eventually meet for battle at Kurukshetra and at the end of 18 days only 12 major warriors are left including the five Pandavas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurukshetra_War#Aftermath

The battle of Kurukshetra is also the battle of Armageddon where again the conquerors stand on the mountain (ascension) alongside the lamb of god.

Or defeating Voldemort,Sauron,Goliath,Pharaoh in the story of Moses…..etc etc.

It is the battle each one of has to take to overcome the beast inside of all of us and conquer in the name of truth and light.

What is fascinating about it all is that so many cultures are talking about the same thing in a myriad of ways.

Yet at the end of the day…it is the same story being told….the greatest story ever told…the story of us!

There is no religion higher than truth!
