A GNOSTIC OVERVIEW
When we talk about the rising of the Kundalini we are speaking of spiritual awakening. The common misconception among Christians being that there is no Biblical telling of how this can be achieved. In fact, the general consensus seems to be that the Bible doesn’t even speak on different states of consciousness at all. While I was awaiting trial my lawyer suggested I read the Bible as if it were chronicling the different stages of our conscious development. In doing so I quickly uncovered a vast amount of esoteric wisdom in the first three chapters of Genesis alone- see Matter From Mind. Naturally, Solomons teachings sort of just revealed themselves at that point.
Reading of the construction of the Temple urged me to build a Temple within and prepared me to accept Sophia as an Old Testament telling of the Holy Spirit- I was already personally inclined to believe that the nurturing aspect of G-D almost has to be a woman. So, hearing of this Queen of the Sabaeans of Arabia travelling North to meet with this wise King in the Holy City was pretty easy to incorporate. There are so many versions of this story it is unreal. Shakti and Shiva, the Taoists own Husband and Wife in the bedchamber, even the western tradition of the Chemical Wedding speaks of this sacred union.
All of these concepts allude to one thing: Humankind overcoming the duality birthed by our falling to temptation in the Garden of Eden.
Here lies the crux of the mystery. When Jesus said “Blessed is the one who existed before coming into being” he is hinting at a deeper truth. Our end- in the physical plane- returns us to the beginning- in the spiritual plane. See, there are two creation stories in Genesis. There’s the first where “God created mankind in His image” we see in Genesis 1:27 that we all think of but somehow manage to misinterpret. We like to translate this into meaning G-D looks like we do and is a carbon based life form. How would G-D be Infinite and beyond all understanding if that were the case? G-D would just be an extra-terrestrial and Ancient Astronaut theory would rule the day. What if we were created in likeness of mind?
That would imply that our consciousness springs fro the Cosmic mind of G-D. Then, and only then can we grasp how our consciousness is interconnected with the Divine. “We are His Sons. We are chosen ones of the Living Father.” This was Jesus message. He was showing us how to move past our dualistic nature into the Cosmic oneness of ALL CREATION. The Kingdom of Heaven and the Garden of Eden become one and the same.
Duality has crippled us. Think of Thomas 61c: “Therefore I say that if one is unified one will be filled with light, but if one is divided one will be filled with darkness.” Moments before, Jesus tells Salome exactly who He was, and who we all are when he said “I am He who comes into being from Him who is the same.”
Nowadays we all run around denying each others beliefs claiming to have exclusive rights on salvation. We all have these beautiful explanations we use to argue each other down and for what? Spiritual superiority? I guess pride really does come before the fall.
See, all of these abstract intellectual concepts actually HINDER our growth. As the idea of YHWH becomes less tuned and less concrete within us that FEELING of being in constant contact with G-D becomes lost. However, G-D… IS…ALIVE… AND WELL… WITHIN… US ALL. Anyone can awaken to that. All it takes is a little bit of spiritual discipline through prayer and meditation. I urge you to start today. Right where you are.
REUNITING WITH G-D
“Give your servant, therefore a listening heart to judge your people and to distinguish between good and evil… (NAB- 1 Kings 3:9)”
Ask G-D for Wisdom. Vocalize the desire and believe with all your heart and you will receiver Her. The heart chakra held the key to unlocking this mystery. Allow me to recant…
Through the minds eye, visualize a Temple being built where your heart is. Construct it however you like. I chose the mathematical precision of the Star of David because, beyond sacred geometry or my affiliation, it resonates within my soul.
Once you’ve visualized the Temple in detail spend time meditating there, become familiar with your inner world. Once you’ve become accustomed to looking within ask YHWH to fill your heart with Wisdom and to guide your steps. Say it out loud. Repeat the process over and over until your prayers are answered. What did Yeshua say?-
“Everyone who asks, receives; the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door shall be opened. (NAB-Matthew 7:8)”
-Yeshua then goes on to explain “But seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven.” That may seem a bit cryptic but another book clears up the mystery. In Luke 17:21 He explains “The coming of the Kingdom of God cannot be observed”- physically perceived- “For behold, the Kingdom of G-D is inside you.”
All mystical experience begins with us seeking G-D through prayer and meditation. I’ve heard it said that prayer is how we talk to G-D and meditation is how we listen. I personally can’t picture one without the other and have found both to be of great benefit to my spiritual development and I hope you find as much value in them as I have. Peace be with you.
