Given the moral and spiritual state of our world, is it safe to assume that nothing is as it seems? At one point in our vast human history, “religion” was a tool used to transmit certain truths and to cultivate the Divine Principle within its adherents. So when did “religion” begin to be utilized as a weapon, teaching its followers to hate, rape, oppress, and kill?
In my opinion, I don’t think the various religions are to blame for the demarcation that’s so prevelant throughout our planet. It is our fault because we have misinterpreted all of the sacred Scriptures we profess to believe in and study. Our pride, greed, lust, and fear has caused us to pervert some of the most profound Teachings ever passed down through mankind.
Christianity is right. Hinduism is right. Zoroastrianism and Sikhism are right. Judaism, Buddhism, and Islam are right. We are the ones who got it wrong! Every culture received revelation relative to their condition and custom.
“The Divine Spirit makes contact with mortal man, not by feelings or emotions, but in the realm of the highest most spiritualized thinking. It is your thoughts, not your feelings, that lead you Godward. The Divine Nature may be perceived only with the eyes of the mind. But the mind that really discerns God, hears the indwelling Christ, is the pure mind.”
– Book Of The Earth 101:1
Everything I explain is done so from the Hebrew perspective, using our sacred text (i.e. the Volume of Sacred Law or Bible), and translated from our sacred language (i.e. Hebrew). I do this to show the universal application of the Bible, and everything I share can be verified through your own diligent study.
Let me begin by explaining what an Ivri Muuri, or Moorish Hebrew, is exactly. It definitely has nothing to do with race. It’s more of a cultural designation. The word “Ivri” (Hebrew) means “one from beyond, one passing through, or traveller.” In a spiritual sense, none of us are from this world! “I am a stranger in the earth; do not hide Your (Yahweh’s) commandments from me” (Psalm 119:14). As I have alluded to in a previous blog, we are merely individual nitsotsim (sparks) dispelled from the Eternal Light of the Universe.
As for “Muuri” (Moorish) it means “merchant, businessman, manufacturer, producer, builder, craftsman, or creator.” Again, none of this is to be taken literal. Remember that all religions are systems of morality, veiled in allegory, and explained by symbolism. In Deuteronomy 28:12 it’s written: “Yahweh will open for you His bounteous store, the heavens, to provide rain for your land in season and to bless all your underakings. You will be creditor to many nations, but debtor to none.” It is from Yahweh’s “bounteous store, the heavens” (i.e. our mind) that we receive His divine blueprint and iron clad business plan which can guide us in our constructing His kingdom here on earth.
So to be an Ivri Muuri (Moorish Hebrew) is to be an operative craftsman in Yahweh’s Hekal ha-Gadol, or Grand Temple. In other words, an active producer in a world full of opportunity. All of this being a roundabout way of acknowledging oneself as the “Creator passing through,” and interacting with, His/Her very own creation.
My point is that as believers we are responsible for how others experience the Divine Presence. As believers we are to be examples for those young in their faith, as well as examples for the nonbelievers. As believers we should be persistent disciples with open minds, always searching for truth wherever it can be found.
In Scripture, the apostle Paul as a partsuf, or character, is meant to be a shadow of the patriarch Yaakov (Jacob) and the milchamah penimi, or inner war, he endured. But the apostle Paul represents a specific internal struggle. His battle was between the man-made dogma he was indoctrinated with and the truth of Christ (i.e. our God-self). Of course the truth of Christ won out and it completely transformed Paul’s perspective of life (Acts 9:1-20).
Within this midrash, or story, are instructions that we are to follow as believers. For the most part, everything we have been taught since birth is a lie! Once we realize this and seek truth, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, we too will receive a revelation that has the power to shift our consciousness.
We need to evolve our paradigm.
“Our false conceptions of what life is, cause us to believe that these physical bodies are our real selves, whereas these mortal bodies are only aggregations of senseless matter, absolutely void of any intelligence or sensation whatever, having no kingdom nor destiny. They are mere spectres claiming reality, but dependent entirely upon false beliefs for their existence.”
