The parable of the City on the Great Mountain of Gold.
Once there was a great land. In this land there was a very large Mountain called the Great Mountain of Gold. Up high in the mountain was a beautiful
city. A beautiful city inhabited by a virtuous & noble class of people, who forbid the harming of animals or eating flesh. A noble class of God loving
Surrounding the Great Mountain were 6 hills. And on each of the individual hills there were built 6 different towns. The first town consisted of
fisherman. The second town of meat traders and butchers. The third town of metal smiths. The forth town of hunters. The fifth town of great warriors.
And the 6th town of farmers.
The city on the great mount was so high up in the mountain, that none of the people residing in any of the 6 towns knew of it or noble class of
people. But the virtuous people who were Monks could see all the happenings of the towns folk, living on the 6 hills far below.
High up on top of the mountain, there was situated a pure reservoir of water, located in the middle of the beautiful city. From it flowed 6 beautiful
rivers. Each river flowing in its own direction, out of the city, down the sides of the mountain, toward each of the different towns on the small
As the pure water slowly flowed down the sides of the mountain, little by little, the water gathered loose dirt and soil, gradually losing a some of
its purity, as it made its way to each of the different towns for the towns people to drink..
The towns people from each town drank from there own rivers. Not understanding that there river had come from far up on top of the Great Mountain.
From the reservoir of pure water.
The people from each of the different towns on the hills, believed there river water to be the clearest, finest and the most pure in all the lands.
Not realizing that soil and dirt had gathered in there river as it flowed down the sides of Great Mountain. They all were unable to understand this or
see this as the mountain was too high up for them to see.
The towns folk used to bicker and squabble with the neighboring towns on the hills, over who had the purest best tasting water. They would argue and
fight with there neighbors in the differing towns. For each truly believed and were adamant they were right.
They argued with there neighbors, they fought with them. So much so that they turned on each other, killing one and other, each defending there
belief, over whose river and water was the most pure. .
None of the people in all these lands, except those on the mountain, understood that all the rivers came from the same source, from the Great Mountain
of Gold itself.
But the beautiful noble people of the Great City, were the only ones to see that all 6 rivers originated from there abode. There sight was so good as
they were situated so high up, that they could see all the happenings around them and in the lands below.
So I will make this easy for you to understand. The hills and the towns folk represent today’s different world religions and the people who belong
to them. The water and purity thereof represents there understanding of Truth. The Great Mountain & the pure reservoir of water represent Truth
Knowledge, and Gods teaching to us. Gods True Church. The noble Monks represent Gods true shepherds. The location where the people live show how far
they are able to see. The people who live high on the Mountain drink from the pure reservoir and adhere to Gods highest commands. Not harming living
creatures. The people who belong to each of the villages do not obey all of Gods commands thus they are divided and have limited vision. As they
cannot see that it is the same water in which quenches the thirst of all the people.
So I ask you. Are you or your shepherds and religious teachers like the people on the Great Mountain. Or are they like the towns folk on the hills?
Are you drinking pure water?
