Part II - The Tree Of Life and the Divine Marriage

This is a continuation of my reply to author JJ Dewey -- Part I can be read at at

While modern man often uses the rhetoric of the fact that modern science has proven that we dwell in a holographic reality (see What Exactly Is A Hologram?) -- and modern man often uses the rhetoric of a Divine Pattern that is replicated into all of Creation -- few people understand how these two terms apply to them, or the enigma of dwelling in a world that is a Holographic Divine Pattern where each fragment is a replication of the Whole.   

While the pattern of the Tree of Life is in fact the pattern of your own mind, because of our holographic reality, within each of the (12) spheres of the mind exists the a replication of the whole -- which equates to the pattern of the twelve within the twelve.   And from the perspective of human consciousness, this inner fragmentation can be reduced to the number 144,000 points that make up the Mind of man as patterned within the diagram of the Tree of Life.  And it is this fragmentation of mind that is responsible for the condition of fragmented (false) personalities which was written about extensively by Gurdjieff and others who have written on esoteric psychology.  Carl Jung noted that the early Gnostics were the worlds first psychologists -- and quoting from yesterdays reply: And this reality is attested to by one of the foremost Theosophists, G.R.S. Mead, in his celebrated work, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten, where he explained that, once properly understood, the true meaning of the allegorical symbolism used is “…projected onto the screen…” of the scriptures, “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds”.    Carl Jung and G.R.S Mead not only had many meetings together, but coordinated their efforts.   And when I use the tern 144,000 which is of course used in the Book of Revelations, as being significant to the Gnostics and can be understood as an important element in the psychology of consciousness and “…was in reality a picture of their [man’s] own minds”, Gudjieff's portrayal of man as having a fragmented mind must be understood and common esoteric knowledge among those who seek to Know Thyself.   Which means that neither Gurdjieff's or my own portrayal of this number being associated with the fragmented mind of man, is nothing new and common (esoteric) knowledge among those of whom it can be said that they have fulfilled the adage to Know Thyself.     

What this means is that those who Gnostics have traditionally portrayed as "natural" or nature-man, not only dwells in a very fragmented and divided condition of mind and being, but there are other ramifications and consequences that greatly effect our understanding of both the Tree of Life and the mind of man.   The bottom sphere of the Tree of Life is portrayed as the kingdom of the earth -- and it is the seat of earth or carnal consciousness.   And this is why Paul stated: "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature" (Col 3:5 NIV).   Further stating that “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live” (Rom 8:13 KJV).   And this is why the early Christian Bishop and Gnostic Valentinus stated that there is no salvation for those who can be categorized as nature-man.   Why?   Because as an embryonic-image generated by our higher soul-self at conception (see Man As An Embryonic Soul-Image), when we fail to develop, we remain earth-bound in our thinking and lack of development.   Why?   Our thoughts and consciousness arise and develop in the mind upon the vital life-force that originates in the seven spiritual centers which in the East are referred to as chakras -- and because the whole of our thinking is grounded in the lower sphere of the Tree of Life, as the thoughts rise and move through upper spheres, these thoughts and thinking remain within the earth-sphere of the twelve within the twelve of each of the upper spheres of mind.   Which equates to the reality that organic man only uses approximately 10% of his potential of mind -- remaining carnal and earth-bound in his thinking and understanding.   Because of the holographic pattern of the twelve within the twelve, only those aspects of each of the upper spheres which relate to the earthly-kingdom, are active in the consciousness of nature-man.   Which equates to the reality that in the example of the upper Wisdom or Understanding spheres of mind as expressed through the pattern of the Tree of Life, only those fragments within the spheres that could be labeled Earth-Wisdom or Earth-Understanding, is active -- while the greater 90% of each sphere remains dormant and undeveloped.   Incapable of understanding anything beyond what would be portrayed as being of an earth-vibration.   And this is why the Gospel account of Jesus explained when questioned with respect to how he taught the multitudes who were portrayed as being "outside" the House (see In The House)  “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding” (Mark 4:11-12 NIV).   Which confirms the fact that the portrayal of Jesus was not one who did or even could reveal the "secrets of the Kingdom" to the multitudes of man -- but only parables as presented in the words: "And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it.  But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples" (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV).    Which also means that what the literal text of the Gospels is, is parables within a greater allegorical parable -- as noted by the Wycliffe Bible Commentary which writes that: “…the initiate was instructed in the esoteric teaching... which was not revealed to outsiders… The mystery of the kingdom in its ultimate development is the full-orbed message of the Gospel (Rom 16:25-26). The purpose of parables was to instruct the initiates without revealing the items of instruction to the ones who were without. This is in keeping with the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”  . And that is the Key with respect to developing the mind beyond the 10% organic level of consciousness -- i.e., "...the Biblical principle that spiritual understanding is restricted to those who have become spiritual...”  

Valentinus correctly stated that Faith-Based Christians who did not possess a working knowledge of the (Natural) Laws would always become bound and impeded by their ignorance of the Laws -- regardless of their faith.   One of the reasons he stated this was because the Laws of Creation MUST maintain Wholeness across the spectrum of the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life.   And because at conception the embryo that was formed can only be imbued with 1/144,000th of the Whole, each person is born from this perspective within the Whole.   And I maintain that it will remain impossible to understand this human reality of consciousness without reading the subheading The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind.  In the same way that the Twelve Spheres of the Tree of Life is comprised to 144,000 points of lesser consciousness, on a cosmic level each person can be portrayed as a single neuron within the Holographic Pattern of the Cosmic Tree of Life.  And this is why each person and each group perceives and understands the world and even all of life from a different and often conflicting perspective.  And this is why some people can be portrayed as a conservative or liberal, a Marxist or Atheist, a person such as Jim who seeks the teachings of the East, or his opposite who would totally reject the East -- as well as all the other diverse opinions, religions and philosophies of mankind.   Which is also why Peter in the Homilies states that each person sees a different message in the scriptures -- as well as all of life.  In a recent Huffington Post article the author portrays Jesus as a Marxist (see ).   And quoting the opening of the article An Inconvenient TruthWho was Jesus?  Man, Myth or God?   Theologian Albert Schweitzer suggested that there will never be one answer to that question.   He said that looking for Jesus in history is like looking down a well: You see only your own reflection.  The “real” Jesus, Schweitzer says, will remain “a stranger and an enigma”.   And this is true, because each person's consciousness and understanding is in direct relation to the point within the spectrum of the Tree of Life that his mind and being was imbued at conception.       

From a Holographic perspective, when one comes to understand the Laws that maintain Wholeness and bring about what is best portrayed as  The Enigma Of The Segmented Mind, there is a higher purpose and reason for this enigma that is presented in the subheading The Solution To The Enigma.   And this reality of the Natural Laws of Creation goes to the heart of the Sermon on the Mount and the Commandment against judging your brothers and sisters.   Because each person and group is imbued by the Laws to perceive and understand from a different and often conflicting perspective, if you use Empathetic Triangulation instead of Judgement, the other person or group will assist the process of bringing about your own expansion of mind by making the dormant points in the 90% of consciousness within your own mind that was and is not supported by organic consciousness, begin to become active within your own mind.   It is my understanding that JJ Dewey and other members of the Keysters forum were present at the Constitutional Foundings of the USA, and it is this Deist perception and understanding of the Laws of Nature and Nature's God that served as the bedrock of the American Constitution as presented on the website . 

Returning back to the pattern of mind as portrayed in the diagram of the Tree of Life,  the Tree of Life is normally drawn over an image of man, such as in this picture (see ).   And this is because your whole body which interacts with the mind in the levels of the Etheric Field that surrounds the body, is an allegorical image of the Mind.   The outer spheres are representative of the Tree of Duality -- the eating of the fruit of which brings death -- that is death through the non-development portrayed by Valentinus above.   The Left column is the feminine half -- i.e., Intuition, Mercy and Wisdom.   The Right column is the male half -- i.e., Linear-Logic, Judgment and Understanding.   The separation and division of the male/female columns bring about the division of the upper Heavenly Kingdom sphere, with its other half at the bottom which is labeled the Earthly Kingdom sphere.   What is portrayed in Genesis as the Tree of Life that provides Eternal Life to the eater thereof, is the Center Column which is labeled Foundation, Love, Knowledge, Intellect -- and it is these four spheres of mind that is the Third-Force balance of the four Trinities in the Tree of Life.   It must be noted that the Intellect Sphere is not intellect as we would think of it -- but rather, how the individual uses the knowledge of the Divine in their daily life -- and it has more to do with the fruit a person brings forth in their daily life.   

With respect to the columns and divisions of the spheres of mind as portrayed in the graphic image of the Tree of Life, Gospel of Thomas saying #22 is of great importance where it states that: They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"  Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female;  ...then will you enter the kingdom."   In view of the fact that the Tree of Life is comprised of four trinities -- each having a male/female paradoxical opposite -- with each trinity having a common offspring in the third-force balance of the Center Column.   Our higher Soul-Self that is a Being of Light -- which is our True Self that we are an image of in Gospel of Thomas saying 84 -- and exists separate from us in what I portray as the Realm of Souls -- is of course asexual, and is the balance of male/female, physical/spiritual, heaven/earth and all other dualities (see ).   To bring about the Oneness of the above (heavenly kingdom) and the below (earthly kingdom) -- you must bring about the Oneness of the Left Column (female) with the Right Column (male) in the Center Column of the Tree of Life.   And when you consider that the Intellect Sphere can be portrayed as the body which surrounds the other eleven -- and is therefore the third-force balance of the upper and lower -- the only means to enter the Kingdom is through the Center -- or that Sphere labeled Love.   And this is demonstrated in the version of Gospel of Thomas saying 22 which is preserved in the Gospel of the Nazirenes which states: And one of the disciples asked him, "How shall a man enter into the Kingdom?" And he answered and said, "If you don't make below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the center and passing into the spirit, you will not enter into the kingdom of God."   The great difference between Eastern Teachings with their attempt to "get above the mind" in meditation and chakra-gazing, and that of the Teachings of TheWay and the development of the Mind (Tree of Life) was one of the primary topics of conversation between myself and Jim that caused me to write the subheading The Way OF The Monk ( ).      

The question now becomes how do you bring together the male and female columns and make them "one flesh" in the Center -- i.e., "...and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female;  ...then will you enter the kingdom."  Only when you begin to understand that when you emerged from the womb of your physical mother, you actually entered the Womb of Mother-Earth were the next stages of development and birth must be brought about -- can you begin to grasp that when you entered this world you entered as what I portray a Cosmic Ovum And Sperm (see The Cosmic Ovum And Sperm).   And it is this reality that is the cause of the many sexual prohibitions that are presented in the Bible -- including the teachings of Jesus that even looking as a woman who is not your wife with lust, is adultery.  And while Jesus did not stone the woman caught in adultery, he did say to her to go and sin no more.   And the reason for this, as well as the dynamic and etheric interactions of man and woman with respect to fulfilling the above requirements to enter the Kingdom is explored in great depth beginning at The Esoteric Feminine Mystique (see ) -- which as a beginning point, contains far too much information to replicate in this reply.   But one of the more important points from the perspective of understanding the Tree of Life is the account of the interaction of Peter and Mary Magdalene -- quoting from the subheading Intuitive Mind vs Linear-Rational

And in this respect such biblical figures as Mary Magdalene is not the personification of an historical person -- but rather, the purification, development and raising up of the (feminine) intuitive aspects of the disciples own mind.    In the Gospels associated with Mary Magdalene it is written: “She speaks to the other disciples about Jesus and what she’s seen, and Peter says, ‘I don’t believe the Lord said these things. These are certainly strange ideas.’ And she says, ‘Well, do you think I made them up? Do you think I’m lying about the Lord?’ ”   In this allegorical representation, the linear-rational aspect of mind is represented in Peter's inability to comprehend what the feminine-intuitive as represented in the allegorical personification of Mary Magdalene reveals.   And since these intuitive visions, impressions and wisdom does not support the linear reasoning of the masculine vision of this world and Creation, in most people they are rejected. 
In the introduction to the book Secrets of Mary Magdalene, Prof. Elain Pageles writes and quotes the Gospel of Philip: Simultaneously, the Gospel of Philip celebrates Mary Magdalene as manifesting the divine spirit, which this gospel calls the “virgin who came down” from heaven. When Christians spoke of Jesus “born from a virgin,” this author agrees—but refuses to take it literally. So some people, he says, take this literally to mean that Jesus’ mother became pregnant apart from any man, apart from sexual intercourse. But this, he says, is the “faith of fools” who fail to comprehend spiritual matters (although, as we note, it can be seen in the birth narratives offered in the New Testament gospels of Matthew and Luke). Instead, continues the Gospel of Philip, Jesus was born physically, just as all humans, as the son of biological parents. The difference, says the author of this gospel, that he was also “born again” in baptism--born spiritually to become the son of the Father above, and of the heavenly Mother, the Holy Spirit.   That one of the primary objectives of this life is to bring about and achieve the next stage of birth -- a non-physical birth which is allegorically portrayed as a Virgin Birth -- should be of primary importance to all people.   
In the same way that Peter as representing the (male) linear-rational spheres of mind states of the intuitive visions and wisdom of Mary Magdalene:  "...These are certainly strange ideas", neither can the male column of the Tree of Life grasp the vision and perception of the female columns of the Tree of Life -- and it is this gulf of separation that creates the Tree of Duality -- the fruit of which inhibits the development of the mind, and brings about the death of the eater thereof. 
To again quote from the above link: The proper development of the mind to eclipse what can be called organic human limitations, is dependent upon the interaction of the linear and intuitive spheres of mind.   But when the intuitive perception is inhibited, and development is suppressed, even the linear is flat-lined from any development beyond what is portrayed in the Gospels as carnal and restricted consciousness.    The linear mind of man remains limited in its development, because the intuitive remains infantile and shackled in a captive environment where it is only permitted to express itself in linear terms.  While the inward looking intuitive has the potential to access higher consciousness and states of mind and being, it is unable to arise to its intended potential because of the shackles placed upon it by a thoroughly domineering and controlling linear culture.    Like a woman who in many Islamic cultures are forced to dwell in an imprisoned world beneath a Burka -- not permitted to openly express herself except when accompanied by a male relative -- totally deprived of the ability to openly speak on her own behalf -- the natural expression of the intuitive mind has been so impeded by our linear-driven culture, that it has remained undeveloped and unreliable as a resource (see Opening And Unlocking the Mind).   Because the male-linear as portrayed as the portrayal of Peter takes the position that "...These are certainly strange ideas", when the perceptions of the feminine-intuitive is encountered, the merger of impressions can never be brought about -- thus, flat-lining the union at a very low-self carnal perception of man's true reality.  

The interaction of the male/female outer PARADOXICAL columns of the Tree of Life that is crucial to the development of Mind as presented in the twelve spheres of the Tree of Life -- while much of which is presented in the above link at  The Esoteric Feminine Mystique -- can be tomorrows topic of discussion if you would like.  The interaction and development of these columns is a subject all unto itself.   And I have already been writing for a long period of time this morning.
