How Important Is The Spiritual Wisdom Of Giordano Bruno To Modern Man

How Important Is The Spiritual Wisdom Of Giordano Bruno To Modern Man?

I could not make the following post across FaceBook, because of the censorship of spiritual concepts and ideas. 

Quoting an excerpt from The Science Delusion http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TheScienceDelusion
The Cosmos TV Series portrayed Bruno as the only man who understood the infinite universe in the time-frame in which he lived -- attributing this wisdom to "lucky guesses".  Ignoring the fact that Bruno explained that every person who has ever walked the face of the earth has the same ability to know and understand the Truth of man's realty that he had come to know.  So what is the facts and the truth?  Where the vast majority of linear-thinkers are incapable of thinking outside of their ideological and philosophical box, Bruno presented an explanation for what modern physicists have recently discovered.  Which means that the linear-thinkers who attributed the wisdom of Giordano Bruno to "lucky guesses" -- as well as the large body of scientists who can't think beyond their ideological and philosophical barriers fabricated out of fossilized science that has been proven to be gravely defective -- have become an anchor to the advancement of mankind.   
In the same way that modern physicists have recognized that whatever exists in this three-dimensional physical realm is a projected image which they portray as a "blemish", whose source is in what they portray as an UNSEEN FIELD that is outside man's organic range of vision, modern physicists have in fact proven the wisdom of mystics who have perpetually portrayed the physical matter as an illusion, and the person we are in this world as a projection into this realm by a Higher True-Self of greater consciousness and being that exists beyond our physical perceptive-vision and comprehension -- and this Higher-Self is the Being of greater consciousness and knowing is the True-Self portrayed in the adage to Know Thyself -- i.e., not the physical self that can be portrayed by modern science as the "blemish-self" -- but rather, that All-Knowing Higher Self that exists in the UNSEEN FIELD that is projecting us into this realm of limited consciousness.  And it is this Higher-Self that Giordano Bruno stated has the ability to teach and convey to all mankind the Truth and Knowledge of all things.  In the same way that modern physicists have proven that physical matter is a "blemish" or shadow-image whose Source is projected from an UNSEEN FIELD, Bruno explained that within the depths of man's consciousness is his True-Self that is not manifest in this physical world.  And thus, to Know Thyself, one had to Know the Source of Self that is beyond the expression of the Self in physical matter. 
In his writings Giordano Bruno often made reference to this higher self that is our true self.   Quoting from the article Genuine Religion vs Counterfeit Shadow Religion Bruno writes that: "The soul is not the body and it may be in one body or in another, and pass from body to body" (see 30 Quotes On Reincarnation).   He is therefore agreeing with the modern physicist who states that the True-Self is not the body, and has lived in many different bodies throughout what the mystic has portrayed as the Journey of the Soul over the course of many physical lifetimes.  Which raises the question: How can a Christian believe in the prexistent soul that lived many lives -- often portrayed as the reincarnation of the soul?  But when it is realized that Jesus taught a form of reincarnation (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Developmenthttp://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ) -- and this original teachings was removed from the teachings of the Church by a series of Roman Emperors (see The Religion Of Roman Emperors http://ChristianReincarnation.org#emperors ) -- and that one of the most important teachings pertaining to entering the Inner Kingdom was removed from the Gospels (see Turn About And Become As a Child http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout ) -- then both fossilized medieval-science and dogmatic man-made blind-faith religion must be seen fad the detriment to man's progress that it truly is -- i.e., a mental and spiritual anchor that keeps mankind in a stae of perpetual ignorance.     
Giordano Bruno's direct knowledge  of the soul of man is further presented in the words: "The divine perfection of the individual soul is the aim of all progression" (Giordano Bruno quoted in  Reincarnation: The Phoenix Fire Mystery; Cranston/Head, editors).    Thus, on the higher reality of the soul Bruno wrote: "Within every man there is a soul-flame, kindled at the sun of thought, which lends us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge."   Bruno's portrayal of the Soul's ability to "...lend us wings whereby we may approach the sun of knowledge", is making reference to the person who develops the ability to make the inward journey to their inner  Source of Being that the modern physicist portrays as existing in the UNSEEN FIELD.   When the physicist states that physical matter is a "blemish" that is projected from an UNSEEN FIELD, the question is provoked as to how the physical-person can make the inner journey to their Source of Being in the Unseen Self-Field?   And it is this inner journey to our Source or True-Self that is historically portrayed by the mystics in the image below.  And with respect to this inner journey to our Source of Being, author and visionary Philip K. Dick stated in The Ten Principles Of The Gnostic Revelation where he portrays the realty of the person you are in this world with your higher soul-self where he wrote: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor" -- which confirms the statements of Giordano Bruno.   Which should raise the question: What does each person have to do to make this inward journey to their True-Self?  An even more important statement by Philip K. Dick with respect to this inner journey is presented in his words: "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here.  He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)." 
Like my own recall of my Soul's previous life as Jacob who they call James, the Brother of Yeshua who they call Jesus (see http://BrotherOfJesus.org ), Philip K. Dick possessed degrees of past life Soul-Memory.   Quoting Philip Dick's account (see Wikipedia):  "When a delivery person from the pharmacy brought his pain medication, he noticed the ichthys necklace she wore and asked her what it meant. She responded that it was a symbol used by the early Christians, and in that moment Dick's religious experiences began:
"In that instant, as I stared at the gleaming fish sign and heard her words, I suddenly experienced what I later learned is called anamnesis—a Greek word meaning, literally, "loss of forgetfulness." I remembered who I was and where I was. In an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, it all came back to me. And not only could I remember it but I could see it. The girl was a secret Christian and so was I. We lived in fear of detection by the Romans. We had to communicate with cryptic signs. She had just told me all this, and it was true.  For a short time, as hard as this is to believe or explain, I saw fading into view the black, prison like contours of hateful Rome. But, of much more importance, I remembered Jesus, who had just recently been with us, and had gone temporarily away, and would very soon return. My emotion was one of joy. We were secretly preparing to welcome Him back. It would not be long. And the Romans did not know. They thought He was dead, forever dead. That was our great secret, our joyous knowledge. Despite all appearances, Christ was going to return, and our delight and anticipation were boundless."
What is being asserted is that while many mystical paths have enabled the person to employ the process of anamnesis-knowledge to gaze into their True-Self in their Unseen Source of Being, the historical man Jesus "...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive".   And it was these esoteric teachings that could only be given to the spiritually mature Christian was the true dividing line between the immature carnal believer and those who possessed this essential knowledge and were portrayed as Gnostic Christians.  This body of Sacred Knowledge that could only be imparted to the spiritually mature followers  of Jesus was made reference to in the Epistle of Peter to James where it is profoundly stated that if these higher teachings and knowledge were to become lost and thrown away, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".  And this has been proven to be true when the folly of fossilized science and blind-faith religion has alienated the people from being able to make the inner journey to the the Source of their Being -- thereby forcing mankind to dwell in a state of medieval intellectual poverty for thousands of years.
With respect to man's inner unknown True-Self, Giordano Bruno further stated: "This principle in man moves and governs the body, is superior to the body, and cannot be constrained by it."  It is Spirit, the Real Self, "in which, from which and through which are formed the different bodies, which have to pass through different kinds of existences, names and destinies."   Giordano Bruno taught that the Law of Reincarnation is indissolubly connected with its twin doctrine of Karma, or "High Justice" -- stating that "Every act performed brings its appropriate reward or punishment in another life. In proportion as the soul has conducted itself in a body, it determines for itself its transition into another body."   In his Spaccio de la Bestia Trionfante, which was published in 1584, Bruno described the condition of a soul who had misused its opportunities on earth, saying that such a soul would be "relegated back to another body, and should not expect to be entrusted with the government and administration of a better dwelling if it had conducted itself badly in the conduct of a previous one."   Thus explaining that there are certain individuals whose "soul-flame" has burned more brightly with each succeeding incarnation, leading them by gradual stages to perfection. "These speak and act not as mere instruments of the divine, but rather as self-creative artists and heroes. The former have the divine spirit; the latter are divine spirits."   With respect to the existence and reality of the Inner Teacher that exists within the self of every person, Bruno wrote that: "The Divine Light is always in man, presenting itself to the senses and to the comprehension, but man rejects it" (quoted in Life and Teachings of Giordano Bruno : Philosopher, Martyr, Mystic 1548 - 1600 (1913) by Coulson Turnbull). 
It is impossible for man to enter a more enlightened age as long has he continues to cling to medieval fossilized science and blind-faith man-made religious doctrines that alienate him from the knowledge of his True-Self-- i.e., quoting the Gospel of Thomas:  "Jesus said, ...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty".

FaceBook Burns Giordano Bruno On Censors Stake

FaceBook Burns Giordano Bruno On Censors Stake

Because Giordano Bruno was a Spiritual Christian who taught other Christians the True of the Gospel Teachings which were suppressed by the Church of Rome (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ), he was burnt at the stake.  Among the countless discussion groups on FaceBook there is one called Thomas Paine Redux https://www.facebook.com/groups/ThomasPaineRedux/ -- which originally contained the below post on Giordano Bruno.  And if you look at the very bottom of the post, you will see the words: This post goes against our Community Standards, so no one else can see it.    Which means that FaceBook censored this post on Giordano Bruno, so that no one can see it.  Yet, I defy anyone to come up with a rational explanation as to why FaceBook censored this post so no one can see it.  Why is FaceBook censoring the below post?  As demonstrated in the article entitled FaceBook's Raging Atheist Censors Declare War On The Word Of God (see https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2019/02/facebooks-raging-atheist-censors.html ), FaceBook censorship has been waging war against Spiritual Christianity.  

Why is FaceBook censoring the below post?  Because it makes reference to the website Christian Reincarnation ( http://ChristianReincarnation.org ) -- and the facts presented on this website prove that not only did the Original Gospel contain the teachings on the Soul that evolves to perfection over the course of many UNIQUE lifetimes, but that this teaching is the foundation of the Gospel.  All the countless sects and confusion over the Gospel message, is all caused by the removal of this ultra-important teaching.  Anyone using any Bible can prove this, in the teaching on "turning about" and becoming a Child to enter the Kingdom (see Turn About And Become As a Child http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#TurnAbout ).  Those who walked and talked daily with the historical man Jesus, all witnessed that he was a true holy man who became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) by fulfilling the Royal Law within his own mind and being (see At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ).  And in order to declare the man Jesus God incarnate, by corrupting the very words that God spoke to mankind (see The Corruption Of The Words Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#CorruptionOfGodsWords ).  Thereby misguiding the vast majority of believers into worshiping their elder brother Jesus, instead of imitating him as the role-model and example in their lives.  
    
In censoring the facts from the people, FaceBook is obstructing the knowledge that mankind needs to understand the purpose and objectives of the life that they are presently living, and denying the people access to the Truth of all Truths.   What is the purpose and objective of the life that we are all living?  What is the true destiny of mankind?  How can each of us move beyond natural organic human limits, and arise to our true potential?  FaceBook has placed an obstacle to the average person being able to factually answer these questions.  Below is a copy of the original post that was put across a private discussion group on Thomas Paine and the founding of the American Constitution, that people had to join, in order to gain access to the post.  FaceBook states that the post is against Community Standards -- and it can rationally be asserted that the censorship of this post conveys more about FaceBook and the suppression of Original Spiritual Christianity and free speech, than it does Community Standards.

I know a person who in a previous life attended Bruno's lectures on "The Art of Memory" that assisted people to overcome their inherent Spiritual Amnesia (see http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#SpiritualAmnesia ) that inhibited people form developing Soul-Memory -- thereby giving them knowledge of not only the previous lives their Soul has lived, but also the Core of Original Gospel Teachings on spiritual blindness (see Soul-Evolution - Reincarnation And Soul-Development http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#SoulEvolution ).  And it is the development of Soul-Memory and overcoming organic human blindness to the higher reality of the Soul, that is despised by both dogmatic Christians and Atheists alike.  And this is why the ideologues strive to suppress this important self-knowledge, in order to preserve their ways of keeping mankind ignorant of their own higher Soul-Reality.

--------------------------------------------------------

Remembering Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) on the anniversary of his execution. One of the pivotal figures in the history of Western esotericism, the memory of Bruno reminds us that divinity is found in all beings, great and small, and that truth will eventually triumph over any attempts to suppress it.

"Filippo Bruno was born in Nola, near Naples, as the son of Giovanni Bruno, ‘uomo d’arme’ (armiger), and Fraulissa Savolino. He first studied in Naples under the direction of Giovan Vincenzo Colle, known as “Il Sarnese”, and the Augustinian father Teofilo da Vairano. In 1565 he entered the Neapolitan monastery of San Domenico Maggiore, taking the name of Giordano. Ordained priest in 1572, he completed his course of theological studies in 1575 with a dissertation on the Summa contra Gentiles. In June 1576 he was accused of having read and studied prohibited books. The seriousness of the accusation induced him to move to Rome, but after learning that the works he had surreptitiously used had been traced in Naples, he decided to quit the Dominican Order.

"There then began a period of wandering through Italy: first to Savona, Turin, and Venice (where he published the small, lost work De’ segni de tempi [On the Signs of the Times]), then to Padua and Brescia, where he appears to have cured a demoniac. In 1578 he passed into France, and after a stay at the monastery of Chambéry, moved to Lyon, then to Geneva. He was received by Gian Galeazzo Caracciolo, Marchese of Vico, and entered into contact with the Italian exile community. He worked as a proof-reader, and on March 20 matriculated at the University. In August 1578 Bruno was accused of defaming the Professor of Philosophy, Antoine de la Faye, and was arrested and brought before the Consistory Court. The incident caused him to abandon Geneva and return to France, where he stayed briefly at Lyon before settling in Toulouse. Here he obtained the title of “magister artium” (Master of Arts) and the post of “ordinary reader” in philosophy. The increasing bitterness of religious differences caused him to move to Paris, where he gave a successful course of lectures on the divine attributes. In addition, his courses on the Art of Memory aroused the interest of King Henri III, who, after having invited him to court to ascertain ‘whether the memory he possessed and professed was [obtained] through natural art or through science’, appointed him “extraordinary reader”. In 1583 there appeared the works De umbris idearum (On the Shadows of Ideas), Cantus Circaeus (Circean Song), De compendiosa architectura et complebritten mento artis Lullii (On the Compendious Architecture and the Completion of the Lullian Art), and the comedy Il Candelaio (The Candlestick).

"For motives that are not altogether clear, in 1583 he left France for England in the train of Michel de Castelnau, ambassador at the court of Elizabeth I. In the summer he held a course of lectures at Oxford, but on being accused of plagiarism, he was removed from the chair. In the same year appeared works on the subject of memory: Ars reminiscendi (The Art of Remembering), Explicatio triginta sigillorum (Explication of Thirty Seals), and Sigillus sigillorum (The Seal of Seals). Between 1584 and 1585 he composed the cycle of Italian dialogues: La Cena de le Ceneri (The Ash-Wednesday Supper), De la causa, principio et uno (On the Cause, the Beginning, and the One), De l’infinito, universo et mundi (On Infinity, the Universe, and the Worlds), Lo spaccio della bestia trionfante (The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beast), La Cabala del cavallo pegaseo (The Cabala of the Horse Pegasus), and De gl’eroici furori (On the Heroic Furies).

"Returning to Paris in October 1585, he undertook a detailed critique of Aristotelian doctrines, first with Figuratio Aristotelici Physici auditus (The Shape of Aristotelian Physics), an original exposition of Aristotle’s physical writings in a mnemotechnical and mythological vein, then with the harsh criticism of Centum et viginti articuli de natura et mundo (120 Articles on Nature and the World), a short work published under the name of his disciple Jean Hennequin, into which was incorporated the material used by Bruno for a public disputation at the College of Cambrai. To this period also belong the polemic with the Salerno geometrician Fabrizio Mordente, evidenced in Dialogi duo de Fabricii Mordentis Salernitani prope divina adinventione ad perfectam cosmimetriae praxim (Two Dialogues on Fabrizio Mordenti the Salternitan on the Divine Invention for the Perfect Practice of World-Measurement) which Bruno issued with the publisher Chevillot.

"The worsening of the religious situation prompted him to move to Germany. He passed through Mainz, Wiesbaden, and Marburg, then between 1586 and 1588 stayed in Wittenberg. Matriculated as “doctor italicus” (Italian Doctor), he held private courses on Aristotle, commenting on the physical and rhetorical writings. A cycle of lectures on Rhetorica ad Herennium (Rhetoric to Herennius) was published in 1612 by Heinrich Alsted under the title of Artificium perorandi (The Art of Pleading). In 1587 Bruno published De lampade combinatoria lulliana (On the Lullian Combinatorial Lamp), De progressu et lampade venatoria logicorum(On the Progress and Hunting Lamp of the Logicians), and Animadversiones circa Lampadem Lullianam (Thoughts on the Lullian Lamp), and worked on the first version of Lampas triginta statuarum (Lamp of the 30 Statues) and Libri physicorum Aristotelis explanati (Aristotle’s Books on Physics Explained), which were published posthumously in the edition of the Opera edited by Tocco and Vitelli. In 1588, after publishing a second edition of Centum et viginti articuli, entitled Acrotismus Camoeracensis, he left Wittenberg with the Oratio valedictoria (Farewell Oration).

"Next he went to Prague, where he published Articuli centum et sexaginta adversus huius tempestatis mathematicos atque philosophos (160 Articles against the Mathematicians and Philosophers of this Time), dedicated to → Rudolf II, and De lampade combinatoria R. Lullii (On the Combinatorial Lamp of R. Lull). In 1589 he was in Helmstedt at the Academia Iulia: on the occasion of the death of Herzog Julius II von Braunschweig, founder of the Academy, he read an Oratio consolatoria (Consolatory Oration) that was printed in the same year. Beside this, he devoted himself to writing magical treatises: De magia mathematica (On Mathematical Magic), De magia naturali (On Natural Magic), Theses de magia (Theses on Magic), De rerum principiis et elementis et causis (On the Principles, Elements, and Causes of Things), and Medicina lulliana (Lullian Medicine). In 1590 he published at Frankfurt the trilogy of Latin poems, De triplici minimo et mensura (On the Triple Minimum and Measure), De monade numero et figura (On the Monad, Number, and Figure), and De immenso et innumerabilibus (On the Immense and Innumerable Things). Expelled from the city, in 1591 he went to Zurich, where he gave a cycle of lectures collected and published by his pupil Raphael Egli under the title Summa terminorum metaphysicorum (Summa of Metaphysical Terms). In the spring he returned to Frankfurt and published De imaginum signorum et idearum compositione (On the Composition of Images, Signs, and Ideas).

"In August 1591 he was invited to Venice by Giovanni Mocenigo, who wished to learn the art of memory. On returning to Italy, Bruno stayed in Padua and Venice, and composed De vinculis in genere (On Bindings in General), Praelectiones geometricae (Geometrical Pre-elections), and Ars deformationum (The Art of Deformations). On May 23, 1592 Mocenigo denounced Bruno to the Venetian Inquisition; the philosopher was arrested and taken to the prison of San Domenico di Castello. On January 9, 1593 his trial began in Rome. In 1599, at the end of a long and complicated legal proceeding, Bruno was invited to abjure eight heretical propositions, singled out by Cardinal Roberto Bellarmino. On December 21, Bruno’s stubborn attitude precipitated the result of the trial: he was handed over to the secular arm and was burned at the stake in the Campo dei Fiori on February 17, 1600.

"... Recent criticism has amply dwelt on the limits of [Frances Yates'] interpretation, but the thesis of the English scholar in her now classic study, Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition, has had the merit of shedding new light on aspects generally overlooked by interpreters; and the suggestive image of Bruno as “Hermetic magus” thus represents an essential stage in the philosopher’s fortunes during the second half of the 20th century." - Michele Ciliberto, DGWE, p.206-13

"Even as we remember victims of intolerance, ignorance and abuse of civil authority, we must also confront the real enemy of human dignity: self-ignorance, and therefore the ignorance of the indwelling Divine." - Fr. Donald Donato

When You Look Into The Scriptures

What is the message of the article at the Cosmology Of The Gospels at http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com ?

 The Source of the New Covenant is founded upon the Essenes -- and with the advent of the man Jesus who totally fulfilled the Royal Law within his own mind and being -- thereby becoming the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) and arising to the stature of being the first prodigal son to become At-One with the indwelling Logos/Son of God -- the Ebionite Nazirenes were the embodiment of the New Covenant. BY DESIGN, there is virtually no historical message in the Gospels -- and this is why the Church Father Origen pointed out the "worthlessness" of the historical interpretation of the scriptures -- i.e., “Scripture contains an unhistorical element in-woven with the history, in order that the worthlessness of the latter may drive us to seek the spiritual meaning” (Origen quoted under Origen Adamntius; The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics). The above article on the Cosmology of the Gospels, conveys the process of how the catalysts develop the Intuitive Spheres of Mind that have been neglected and atrophied by the wisdom of this world.

 Jesus taught that the Kingdom is within us -- and unless you understand the scriptures as a mirror image of your own mind -- IN THE PRESENT -- then the scriptures cannot bring about their intended objective of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening. And what this means is that all the modern interpretations of the scriptures which rely upon the historical understanding, do more to alienate the person from not only their True-Self -- but also, spiritually disenfranchise the blind believer -- in many respects the fate of the religious person is worse off than the unbeliever. But regardless, neither the believer who has embraced the historically based sects that promote their "worthless" interpretations -- as well as the critics and unbelievers who have yet to evolve through the necessary transformative birth process that is the primary purpose of the Gospels -- can make any real gains in the life they are presently living .

 When I use the term "worthless" interpretations, this is true at any time where we attempt to understand the scriptures from a Linear or historical perspective. When you look into a mirror image, everything you see is in the present -- and unless you understand that when you look into the scriptures what you are seeing is a mirror image of your own mind in the present, then your interpretations of the scriptures will not only be worthless, but will gravely mislead you. In his Ecclestical History Eusebius writes that: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees”.  You are the prodigal son/daughter of the Most High -- and the scriptures are designed to assist you in your escape from the servitude to the "Citizen" of this, the Far Country -- which, when properly used for their intended purpose, have the ability to restore your consciousness to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.

 Can this transformative process of mental growth and development be invoked and brought about without the scriptures? Yes, but only if you understand the Cosmology of Mind and Being, and you work within the design of the Natural Laws to bring about the same developmental accomplishments as the historical man Jesus who became the epitome of Wholeness and Completion.

 With the knowledge of the Cosmology of Mind, what is personified as the 12 disciples, Jesus, the virgin birth, the resurrection, as well as all the symbols of higher consciousness that are used as catalysts in the Gospels, must become developed and manifest in Wholeness. The moment you attempt to read the scriptures in the manner of the Jews -- i.e., historically -- then you have thrown away the Key of Knowledge ( http://KeyOfKnowledge.org ). Moreover, ANYONE who has begun to develop their minds beyond organic human levels, will know and understand the reality that I portray in the above. Which means that if you don't know what I know as presented in the above, then you have yet to Know Thyself -- i.e., quoting the Gospel of Thomas: "...But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty". What I am presenting is the Universal Truth that was known by all the disciples of the New Covenant -- as well as those who truly fulfilled the adage to Know Thyself.

FaceBook's Raging Atheist Censors Declare War On The Word Of God

FaceBook's Raging Atheist Censors Declare War On The Word Of God
See newer article, FaceBook Burns Giordano Bruno On Censors Stake at https://brotherofyeshua.blogspot.com/2019/03/facebook-burns-giordano-bruno-on.html 

What is the recourse for activists who are in your face Atheists when it is demonstrated that modern science has not only proven them wrong in their confirmation of the witness of Mystics with respect to the existence of Spirit (see The True Facts And Realities Of Life http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#TrueFactAndRealitiesOfLife ) -- but these same modern scientists have totally undermined the Holy Grail of Atheism and demonstrated the grave error of Darwin's Theory of Evolution (see The Folly Of The Theory of Evolution http://KnowThySelf.Nazirene.org#FollyOfEvolution ).

Every day on religious oriented FaceBook groups  where subject matter is discussed on issues chosen by the members of that group, raging Atheists are often observed cursing and using derogatory names in their portrayal of faith-based believers.  Yet, this foul language is not only accepted, but is evidently within what FaceBook portrays as "Community Standards".   Recently, though, the Atheists have become even more enraged, because at the above links it is demonstrated that modern science has not only proven the existence of what the Mystic has portrayed as mankind's higher spiritual reality, but with these modern discoveries the facts and truths demand that the Theory of Evolution must be dumped in the proverbial trash bin.  This has not only made the raging Atheists angry, but they have moved the FaceBook censors to inhibit the above linked articles from being cited on FaceBook under the guise of that they are against "Community Standards". (see The Speech That FaceBook Plans To Punish).   

While FaceBook Community Standards permits raging Atheists to curse and use the most profane derogatory names against the faith-based participants in these various groups -- and these same censors permit nudity, explicit sex and even what could be portrayed as pornography to grace the pages of FaceBook -- the facts with respect to the existence of Spirit are so adverse to the Atheist agenda of FaceBook censors, that the above links are blocked from being noted.   The Atheists on FaceBook who routinely denigrate the faith-based community of believers, despise being proven wrong by the most modern of scientific findings and discoveries.   These same Atheists can't come to terms with the reality that the Mystics of the past have understood the findings of modern science throughout the Ages.  Among the mystics such as Plato, Pythagoras and the priest, Giordano Bruno, all witnessed in support of the positions of modern science with respect to being able to gaze into the Spiritual Source of all things.  But what really offends the Atheists, is the witness of author and visionary Philip K. Dick who explained the difference between the witness of the Mystics and the teachings of Jesus when he explained: "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here. He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)."  And the vast majority of Atheists who are made aware of this fact -- i.e., that the original Gospel message was intended to prepare the disciple of TheWay to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom -- is easily demonstrated at the subheading: The Fatal Error Of The Church http://KeyOfKnowledge.org#third .  And these same Atheist activists are unable to come to terms with the fact that The Original Gospel Teachings Have Nothing In Common With Modern Church Dogma http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com#OriginalTeachings .
    
How does a person gain entrance into the Kingdom of God?  Among the many FaceBook discussion groups there is one named The Christian Tree Of Life @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/189670448508500/ .  In the Epistle of Peter to James it is stated that if the body of esoteric knowledge that Jesus taught was to become lost and thrown away, that "...it will remain even for those who really seek the truth, always to wander in error".  Why?  Because without the knowledge and understanding of the Natural Laws of Creation, and the application of those Natural Laws in the process of mental-expansion and spiritual-deepening, it would remain virtually impossible for the faith-based Christians to understand how the Gospel teachings must be applied to their lives (see The Cosmology Of The Gospels http://GospelCosmology.Ebionite.com), in order to bring about the necessary Wholeness (see Wholeness of Mind & Being http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#wholeness ) to enter through the inner "narrow strait gate" and gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom -- whereby they can then be taught directly by the Indwelling Logos/Son of God (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ) -- resulting is the ability of the faith-based Christian to not only bring about the necessary spiritual maturity to inaugurate the End Times within them (see The End Times - Armageddon/Rapture - The Coming Of The Kingdom http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#EndTimes ) -- but also fulfill the objective of the prodigal sons/daughters to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination (see Gate of Eden @ http://GateOfEden.com ).   But the fact that with the restoration of these ultra-important Gospel Teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ) has so outraged the Atheist censors of FaceBook, that they have barred the FaceBook uses from making any reference to any of the above links.  And this censorship has been orchestrated on the basis that access to these essential Facts and Teachings has been barred by the FaceBook censors on the grounds that these links violate "Community Standards".

Again, it must be noted that all the members of The Christian Tree Of Life discussion group (see https://www.facebook.com/groups/189670448508500/ ) have requested membership in this standard FaceBook discussion group.   Yet, the FaceBook censors will not even permit the group to set a hyperlink to the article that explores the teachings on the Christian Tree of Life (see http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org ).  And the FaceBook censors base their actions to inhibit the group members from accessing the article, based on their assertion that the article somehow violates FaceBook "Community Standards".   Which provokes the question: What is so objectionable in this article to the FaceBook censors?  The article presents the knowledge of the Natural Laws -- including the twisting of the sequence of the expression of the Laws by the Law of Octaves -- and the article conveys to the faith-based Christian what they must do embrace the Original Gospel Teachings (see http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com ) to prevail over the self-testing of the Natural Laws -- i.e., "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17).   And if we pose the question as to what is meant by the statement: "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches...".  Only with the application of the Original Gospel Teachings with respect to the application of the Natural Laws, can the immature faith-based Christian bring about the necessary spiritual maturity to comprehend the "mysteries of the Kingdom of God" as set forth in the statement: “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand” (Mark 4:11-12 KJV).   And this essential spiritual knowledge of the workings of the Natural Laws so inflames the raging FaceBook censors, that they have blocked all reference to the article that restores this body of knowledge that was suppressed by the fourth century Church for many of the same reasons to inhibit the congregations of Christians from understanding this body of self-knowledge.   Why did the Church suppressed this body of essential esoteric knowledge?  The Foundation of the Gospel Teachings is to seek the One Teacher (see The One Teacher http://BrotherOfJesus.org#TheOneTeacher ) -- which means that if a faith-based Christian was to embrace the Foundational teachings of the Gospel, that they would bypass the supposed authority of the Church, and be able to learn directly from the Indwelling Logos/Son of God -- i.e., "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me" (John 6:45 NKJ).

We are presently in a Spiritual Reformation and Rebirth of Spiritual Truth based upon the Facts and the Knowledge of man's Higher Soul-Reality.  The Original Gospel Teachings that were suppressed by the fourth century Church of Rome, has been restored at http://OriginalGospel.Ebionite.com .  And while seekers worldwide are reading and discussing the Facts and the Truths that are found in this article on the Restored Gospel Teachings, FaceBook has chosen to censor any and all references to the above linked articles.  The censorship is taking place in FaceBook groups that people specifically join, in order to explore and discuss these religious and spiritual subjects.   The reason these posts are being censored by FaceBook is supposedly because the posts pertaining to the above web-articles are against "Community Standards".   In these posts there is no foul language -- there is no bashing of groups or people.  It is easy to encounter foul language in FaceBook.  It is easy to find pages where sexual intercourse, oral sex and anal sex is openly displayed in videos, including links to pornographic websites.   Yet, these sex-videos are evidently within "Community Standards" to be seen by all.

FaceBook censorship is so against the Fundamental Truths presented on the above websites, that the below is a partial listing of some of the posts they are presently censoring from the readers of various religious or spiritual focused discussion groups.  What is FaceBook afraid of?  It could only be the Truth and the Facts of religious spiritual history, and man's higher Soul-Reality.

The Folly Of Literal/Historical Interpretations Of The Gospels

Quoting from:



The genealogy of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew was not removed ONLY because the vast majority of Christians are incapable of understanding the great truths that are presented.  Those who understand the meaning of the numbers will understand that the three subsequent stages of birth presented in the genealogy of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew, is also presented in the parable of the Sower and the Seed (see http://Messianic.Nazirene.org/sower_seed.html ).  In the parable, the initial soul-generated image or personality is projected into the body of a woman at conception -- and this projected soul-image is the seed that has been cast into the earth.  The sperm of the father fertilizes the ovum of the mother, and the image of the pre-existent Soul of the child that is to be born, is projected into the embryo that forms at conception.  But one of the most important aspects of the parable of the Sower and the Seed that is not understood is presented in the example of the seed that was planted in the "good ground" where it states: "But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."   What is being presented is the subsequent stages of birth in the words "...some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."   The term "thirtyfold" is representative of the next stage of birth that enables the person to become At-One with their higher Soul-Self.   The term "sixtyfold" is representative of the third stage of birth that enables the person to become At-One with their Spiritual-Self.  The term "a hundred" is representative of the last stage of birth that enables the person to become At-One with the Logos/Son of God (see http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ).  Thus, in each of the subsequent stages of birth, you must "turn about" and become a child of that kingdom you have entered through the process of birth.   At each level of birth, you must "turn about", and become as a child or "little one". 

Perhaps one of the finest examples of the organic mind's attempt to explain away from a purely physical/carnal perspective what it should be investigating, is demonstrated in the genealogies of Jesus. The fact that the genealogy presented in Luke is not the same as that in Matthew, has long been the source of many dogmatic theories.  But the fact that the genealogy in Matthew contains four women, and three foreigners, should immediately send up a red flag warning that these genealogies cannot -- and never were intended -- to be read literally.
Further, two of the women were strangers to the commonwealth of Israel, Rachab a Canaanitess, and a harlot besides, and Ruth the Moabitess.  In the pedigree of the kings of Judah, between Joram and Ozias (v. 8), there are three left out, namely, Ahaziah, Joash, and Amaziah -- and therefore Joram could not have begat Ozias.   When it is said (v. 12) that Jechonias begat Salathiel, that Jechonias was the son of that Jehoiakim who was carried into Babylon, the scriptures tell us that Jechonias was childless (Jer. 22:30), and in direct contradiction to what is written in Matthew, it is written that “No man of his seed shall prosper”.
In order to insure that the genealogies cannot be read literally, it is further stated in Matthew: “Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ” (Matt 1:17 NIV).   The number fourteen (14) is significant, because it portrays the Son of Man in the Kingdom.  With regard to the many problems presented in the genealogies, the Adam Clark Commentary writes:
[Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:] There are three considerable difficulties in this verse.
  1.  Josias was not the father of Jechonias; he was only the grandfather of that prince: (1 Chr. 3:14-16)
    2.  Jechonias had no brethren; at least, none are on record.
    3.  Josias died 20 years before the Babylonian captivity took place, and therefore Jechonias and his brethren could not have been begotten about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
To this may be added a fourth difficulty, namely, there are only thirteen in this 2nd class of generations; or forty-one, instead of forty-two, in the whole.  When rightly understood, the number forty-one instead of forty-two among other things would signify that the last stage of birth was not Complete -- and the whole of the Gospel portrays the Completion of the final stage of birth in the allegorical account of the crucifixion. 
While it remains virtually impossible to interpret  the above genealogy of Jesus from a literal/historical perspective, it is generally ignored by most students of the scriptures because they lack the ability to uncover the spiritual meaning.  The sequence of the numbers fourteen, fourteen and fourteen, signifies the Son of Man as signified in the number four, and personified in the name of David.   When we add in the number ten which gives us the number fourteen, what we have is the Son of Man reigning in the Kingdom.  And while the sequence of fourteen, fourteen and fourteen would signify achieving the three subsequent stages of birth, the fact that the numbers actually present to us the sequences of fourteen, fourteen and thirteen, conveys to us the necessity to achieve Completion and Perfection in the final stage of birth that the man Jesus accomplished in the allegorical portrayal of the crucifixion.  And while it is impossible to interpret the genealogy in Matthew literally/historically, alleged biblical experts are clueless to understand not only the spiritual meaning, but also what the implications are in the life of all of mankind.  
If the historical man Jesus had to achieve the three stages of birth prior to his becoming the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) in that life, then the question becomes: When were these subsequent stages of birth achieved?  Certainly not in the life as the man Jesus.   Which means that the historical man Jesus lived many previous lives where his Soul evolved to the degree that the subsequent stages of birth could be achieved, and when his Soul entered the life of Jesus, he was only then able to achieve Completion, Wholeness and Total Perfection.    But this raises the ultra-important question that, if the Soul of the historical man Jesus lived many lives in this world in order to achieve the necessary subsequent stages of birth, which enabled him to become At-One With The Logos/Son Of God (see http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement ).   And if it is true that the Soul of the historical man Jesus evolved to the perfection over the course of many lifetimes, this would indicate that all of mankind is presently evolving to this same level of perfection as presented at Matthew 5:48 which sets forth the requirement: "You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect".  If each Soul must achieve the same level of perfection that the historical man Jesus did, then each Soul will have to achieve this perfection over the course of many lifetimes.
By achieving the subsequent stages of birth the person receives the Divine Manna or Sacred Knowledge of the Kingdom -- i.e., "To him who overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna" (Rev 2:8-17).   And it is this Spiritual Nourishment or Divine Manna that neither the Gentiles or the Jews could receive (see The Divine Manna - The Gospels - The foundation of the New Covenant http://BrotherOfJesus.org#NewCovenant ) of the Kingdom that only those who reject the teachers and authorities of this world and seek inwardly can receive.  Why?  Because their beliefs act as obstacles to their higher development of mind and spirit.  Unless they understand that within them is the True Source of Knowledge that they must seek, they will be functioning in an Old Covenant Mode -- even when they read the New Testament.  Further, because of the removal of a number of key teachings from the Gospels, the lack of this self-knowledge has flat-lined those who seek the knowledge and wisdom of this world in an Old Covenant mode of thinking and teaching.  Jesus said to Nicodemus that you must be born again to enter the Kingdom.  In order to demonstrate this reality, lets quote the account of Nicodemus from the Gospel of the Nazirenes instead of the Gospel of John where this ultra-important teaching has been removed from the canonical Gospels by the Gentile Church.  Thus,  in the Gospel Of the Nazirenes we can see preserved the more complete interaction with Nicodemus on the need to be born again to enter the Kingdom which is presented in the 37th Chapter: "Jesus sat in the porch of the temple, and some came to learn His doctrine, and one said to Him, Master, what do you teach concerning life? And He said to them, Blessed are they who suffer many experiences, for they will be made perfect through suffering; they will be as the angels of God in heaven and will die no more. Neither will they be born any more, for death and birth have no more dominion over them.  They who have suffered and have overcome will be made pillars of the temple of my God, and they will go out no more. I say to you, except you be born again of water and of fire, you cannot see the kingdom of God.  And a certain Rabbi, Nicodemus, came to Him by night for fear of the Jews, and said to Him, How can a man be born again when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born again?  Jesus answered Except a man be born again of flesh and of spirit, he can not enter into the kingdom of God. The wind blows where it lists, and you hear the sound of it, but can not tell from where it comes or to where it goes.  The light shines from the East even to the West; out of the darkness. The sun rises and sets into darkness again; so is it with man, from the ages to the ages.  When it cometh from the darkness, it is that he has lived before, and when it goes down again into darkness, it is that he may rest for a little, and there after again exist.  So through many changes must you be made perfect, as it is written in the book of Job, 'I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house, until I come into the city and mansion which is eternal.  And Nicodemus said to him, How can these things be? And Jesus answered , You are a teacher in Israel, and do not understand these things? Truly, we speak that which we know, and bear witness to that which we have seen, and you do not receive our witness.  If I tell you of earthly things, and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you of heavenly things? No one ascends into heaven, unless they descended out of heaven, even the son or daughter of man which is in Heaven."   
If it is true that each person is "...a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house, until I come into the city and mansion which is eternal", then each Soul is returned back into this life if they fail to achieve the subsequent stages of birth that is necessary for the prodigal sons and daughters to return to the Edenic Kingdom of Origination.   On page 220 of the book, Fragments Of A Faith Forgotten by GRS Mead, he quotes the Septuagint and writes: "Job ii. 9: And I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house. The...  passage is found in the version of the Seventy, but is omitted in the English translation."  Why is this passage deleted in the English translation?  That this saying is authentic is demonstrated in the fact that it is quoted by the Church Father Hippolytus in his Refutation of All Heresies, Bk VIII, 3, where he writes: "And that these things are so, says (the Docetic), it is possible also to perceive from Job, when he uses the following words: "And I am a wanderer, changing both place after place, and house after house.'"  What does it mean that "I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house, until I come into the city and mansion which is eternal."   Especially since it appears that those who function in and Old Covenant Mode and walk the broad-way of destruction, cannot bring about the necessary subsequent stages of birth.   It is therefore imperative to understand that the word translated "destruction", in no manner represents what is actually being presented by the interpreters of the Greek biblical texts.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.   Which demonstrates the validity of the statement by the Church Father Origen who wrote: “Every soul... comes into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of its previous life” (Origen, De Principiis).  Which confirms that statement: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap" (Gal 6:7 NKJ).  And of interesting note is the statement by The Hastings-Scribner Dictionary Of The Bible (New York, 1903. Bk 4, p. 63) which proclaimed that "To affirm that Jews in Christ's time did not believe in pre-existence is simply incorrect".   Which is why the disciples of Jesus ask the question: "The disciples of Jesus were persuaded that a man might have sinned before he was born, (John, ix. 2,) and the Pharisees held the transmigration [reincarnation] of virtuous souls, (Joseph. de Bell. Judaico, l. ii. c. 7;) and a modern Rabbi is modestly assured, that Hermes, Pythagoras, Plato, etc., derived their metaphysics from his illustrious countrymen" (Gibbon; Decline & Fall). 
What is being made reference to is the question asked of Jesus about blindness: "Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?'" (John 9:1-2).  In the Gospel of the Nazirenes this same verse reads: "And at another time as Jesus passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, To what importance is it whether this man or his parents sinned? The rewards of our actions return again to us so that the works of the Lord are made manifest."  How are the works of the Lord made manifest?  Again, in the Gospel of the Nazirenes it is explained: "As in Adam all are bound to cycles of rebirth, so in the Messiah shall all be made alive. Blessed are the dead who die in me, and are made perfect in my image and likeness, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them. They have overcome evil, and are made pillars in the temple of my God, and they go out no more, for they rest in the eternal. For them that persist in evil there is no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect. But for them that have done good and attained to perfection, there is endless rest and they go into life everlasting. They rest in the eternal.  Over them the repeated death and birth have no power, for them the wheel of the eternal revolves no more, for they have attained to the center, where is eternal rest, and the center of all things is God." 
In the question presented to Jesus -- i.e., "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents", a reality that the modern Christian does not at all understand is the fact that the Gospels portray three reasons for people being born blind from birth -- i.e., (1) the sins committed in the Soul's previous lives; (2) the sins committed by the parents; (3) and the inherent blindness as a condition affecting all of organic "natural" man when his/her development has been derailed (see Arrested Mental Development ).  Basically, all the people who function in an Old Covent Mode and walk the "broad-way", fail to develop the areas of mind that enable them to begin to tap into the inner Source of Knowledge, and therefore their development of mind is derailed.  Jesus portrayed the Pharisees as "blind guides", because their thinking, mindset, religious framework of thinking and their lifestyle inhibited their higher development.  Because of their inherent organic blindness, they saw only the literal text of the scriptures that Paul portrayed as the "letter that killeth [and] Jewish folktales" (see 2 Cor 3:6; Titus 1:14) -- unable to perceive or comprehend the inner spiritual meaning of the scriptures.   And Jesus made note of this condition of organic blindness when he stated to the Jewish leaders: "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye" (Matt 7:3-5). 
What is not at all understood is the fact that Organic Blindness is the normal undeveloped embryonic mental condition of mind.  And what this means is that because of undeveloped immaturity, all of mankind are born blind to their own higher Soul and Spiritual Reality.  All of mankind remains blind, so long as they are functioning in an Old Covenant Mode and as what Jesus portrays as "dogs" ("do not give what is holy to dogs"), seek their knowledge from the authorities and wisdom of the outer world -- thereby, rejecting the New Covenant mode that enables the mind to develop beyond organic human levels of limited consciousness. And as the mind of man matures and evolves to a condition of Wholeness-- i.e., They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Mark 2:17) -- the fullness of perceptive-vision and enlightened understanding will come -- unless the process of developmental-maturity of mind and consciousness is derailed by mental obstacles and/or a carnal lifestyle immersed in the ways and thinking of this world (see Spiritual Amnesia http://AnInconvenientTruth.org#SpiritualAmnesia ). 
Another ultra-important teaching that was removed from the canonical Gospels has been preserved at Gospel of Thomas saying 84 which reads: "Jesus said, When you see your likeness, you rejoice"  -- and it is this likeness that is our own source of Being -- our soul-self, who is the Being of Light in the Near Death Experience.  And the Gospel of Thomas asks the question: "...But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"    These images which came into being before you, are the past lives that your soul-self has previously lived, that have all failed to bring about the next stage of soul-birth that Jesus taught was necessary to enter the Kingdom.  And thus, these past images which your Soul and True-Self has lived, remain within the House of the Soul as the experiences of failed lives that never became manifest.   Which means that as a failed-image, you will neither go to Glory with God, nor will you reincarnate -- and lacking the permanence of the Soul, you will remain forever as an experience in the House of the Soul. 
The reality of man’s plight in this world is that he is an embryonic image of his pre-existent soul that has entered into this realm in order to perfect those laws and elements that he must overcome.   In the same way that a fetus is an embryonic copy of its parents, our mind is an embryonic image of our soul.   In the same way a fetus must grow and mature in accordance with the pattern of its parents, our mind must grow and mature in the pattern of our soul.   When our mind grows in the culture of this world, and becomes alienated from our soul, then our life becomes synonymous with the miscarriage of a fetus whose defect fails to develop it in accordance with its physical genetic pattern.   What this means is that the Original Teaching on the pre-existant Soul that evolves to Completion over the course of many incarnations, has virtually little in common with the Eastern doctrine of reincarnation.  But the fact that the failed images of the Soul that did not become "manifest", continue to dwell as a sub-personality within the House of the Soul, means that both doctrines must be recognized as "entry-level", and both are misconceptions of a higher reality that "natural" man in his organic condition of mind, is incapable of comprehending.   The Higher Reality of the Soul that Paul warns is incomprehensible from an organic condition of mind, is explored at http://SoulSelf.org .
What this means is that the vast majority of people don't remember the previous lives their Soul has lived, because the soul-image that they are in the present, never lived those previous lives.   Why does the Soul generate images into this world at conception?  Because the Soul is a twelve-dimensional Being of Light ( http://BeingOfLight.com ) that cannot directly incarnate into this three-dimensional realm or earthly-womb.  In much the same way, Creator-God cannot directly incarnate into this world, because the dimensions within the Mind of God are Infinite.  In order to manifest in this world, the soul-generated image must bring about the next stage of birth that would make the person At-One with their Soul-Self.  And in order for God to manifest in this world, a Soul the Spiritual Stature of Jesus must achieve the third-stage of birth that enabled him to become At-One with the Logos (aks Son of God and True Prophet) which Spiritual-Birth is explored at At-Onement With The Logos/Son Of God http://BrotherOfJesus.org#AtOnement .  
Within the Higher Reality of the Soul, all the previous incarnations that are portrayed as soul-images in the Gospel of Thomas, continue to live and dwell within the House or Mind-Matrix of the Soul (see The Matrix Of Soul-Mind http://TreeOfLife.Nazirene.org#MatrixOfMind ).  In the words of St. Teresa: "The soul is as a castle made of a single diamond… in which there are many rooms, just as in Heaven there are many mansions” (Interior Castle by St. Teresa of Avila).  When rightly understood, each soul-generated image must return to their Source in the Higher Realty of the Soul.   What this means is that the higher Soul-Self generates embryonic images at the conception of the body -- and these soul-images then begin the process of evolving through the levels and stages of birth that Jesus portrayed in the words: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- means that those soul-images that, after emerging out of the physical womb of their mother, and into the environment of this world, have begun the next phase necessary in order to bring about the next stage of birth.   That you are a thought-image which has been generated by your higher soul-self -- i.e., you exist as a projected embryonic seed-image which has been impressed into the physical body at conception  -- is the reason why Paul and the earliest of biblical texts warn that carnal man is not even "known by God" (see Soul-Image).    Therefore, you exist as a Creation of God only by proxy -- and by virtue of the fact that you are a thought projected by your soul -- and it was your soul that was Created by God in the beginning.   And thus, the reality of the words to Know Thyself -- and a house that is divided, cannot stand.  
With respect to The Two Ways as taught in the words: "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matt 7:13-14 NKJ) -- it is imperative to understand that the word translated "destruction", in no manner represents what is actually being presented by the interpreters of the Greek biblical texts.   Quoting the footnote on this word in the Schofield Reference Bible which reads: “There is no thought in these various words of annihilation but of something that is ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.     That the higher soul-self generates embryonic images at the conception of the body -- and these soul-images then begin the process of evolving through the levels and stages of birth that Jesus portrayed in the words: "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" -- means that those soul-images that, after emerging out of the physical womb of their mother, and into the environment of this world, have begun the next phase necessary in order to bring about the next stage of birth.   That you are a thought-image which has been generated by your higher soul-self -- i.e., you exist as a projected embryonic seed-image which has been impressed into the physical body at conception  -- is the reason why Paul and the earliest of biblical texts warn that carnal man is not even "known by God" (see Soul-Image).    Therefore, you exist as a Creation of God only by proxy -- and by virtue of the fact that you are a thought projected by your soul -- and it was your soul that was Created by God in the beginning.   And thus, the reality of the words to Know Thyself -- and a house that is divided, cannot stand.
That for countless reasons these soul-images which enter this world in the bodies of man and woman mostly fail to bring about the objective of achieving the next stage of birth that Jesus said was absolutely necessary to achieve permanence in Life, is very much true that they have become as portrayed in the Schofield Reference Bible as being "...ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose”.    As soul-images that failed to evolve through the next stage of birth, they are for the most part temporal -- being temporal, they can never reincarnate as many in the New Age believe -- and neither can they go to Glory as the Church promotes.   The fact that some people claim to see their past lives, have been deceived when they mistakenly believe that they lived those lives, and the memory has been suppressed.    What they are in effect seeing, is the images which their higher soul-self has previously generated -- failed images which is the Gospel of Thomas saying 84 are portrayed in the words that "...when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"   And these failed images which walked (what Jesus portrayed as) the broad-way of self destruction -- i.e., "...ruined and thus unsuitable or unable to fulfill its original purpose” -- neither reincarnate, nor go to Glory in the Christian sense of the understanding -- and yet, they remain within the higher reality of the soul in that dimension of mind which man, in his very limited understanding, calls time (see The Enigma Of Time And The Soul Of Man).
