These numeric patterns can be found in many other sacred writings too, from almost all religions. It is because those who wrote these things were
interpreting or translating "truth" from the spiritual world to the physical world. These patterns and numeric "laws" which govern our world are
present "by accident".
There are many other patterns in the works of the Mayans, Egyptians, Greeks....the hindu vedas. People need to realize that religions are dividing
us, and that there is only one true power and love in the universe. All religions were based on this same power and love, but are imperfect
translations, as the power of God/truth cannot be accurately experienced or shown in the physical world. Although it is possible to greatly increase
the power and accuracy of the message, which is within us all.
The "message" of truth can be found in other places besides religious texts. Art. Art is the closest path to truth when it comes to expression of
truth and love. Everyone has the ability deep down to be a great artist, if they would only realize this and overcome their limitations that they
have placed around themselves. Our physical world (the good, spiritual parts of it) is a constantly changing, growing, physical interpretation of
"God's message", which is the expression of love. The expression of a power so complete, perfect, and loving which unites us all. And so you can
find God's message in poems, songs, paintings, etc...if you can only realize. But even more powerful is the "art" of nature...as it has gone
through less "filters" of distortion from the true message. If you are looking for understanding, there are many places to look besides religion.
Religious texts have been subjected to much more "altering" or interpreting through the years than other writings, just because of the fact that
people see such texts as a great opportunity for controlling others. Some texts have emerged throughout the years with a message that is still quite
clear and close to truth. The Bhagavad-Gita is one...Jesus' teachings in the new testament are good, but it seems there could have been more that
were either left out or altered. Messages of "truth" can also be found in many artistic works of fiction, such as a great "children's story"
called "Dot and the Kangaroo". Which can be found at cronos.advenge.com...
If you can find the true message in
that story, you will be much better off than reading certain religious texts which have been very much distorted.
Thus, when you are reading a religious text, you are only finding someone else's interpretation of truth. While these are good to read, much more
can be learned yet through a direct experience...as I have personally realized in the last few months. This message is all over any religious text
you may read...that salvation lies within. The bible only references this metaphorically, but it is the same as "quiet contemplation", meditation,
prayer, etc. That God/truth is only found truly through direct experience, and anything you "learn" from another person is distorted. Although it
is hard for many people to have a direct experience and be able to really "hear" or interpret the message correctly.
This message of finding truth within can be found in the new testament all over the place if people would see:
"To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside, everything comes in parables; in order that 'they may indeed look,
but not perceive, and may indeed listen, but not understand; so that they may not turn again and be forgiven."
"The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light; but if your eye is unhealthy, your whole body
will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!"
There are many other passages all over the bible and any other religious text, or many works of fiction...which all relay the same message if you can
see it. The problem is that by the very nature of our society and the ways we have been raised, most of us do not have a "healthy eye"...those who
know the meaning of this can also clearly see the things being done by our society/government to make sure this "eye" does not become healthy...as
you have been taught to never accept truth unless some greater human power approves the message, you will never be able to find yourself until you
detach yourself from the control of the physical world.
Once you have your own direct spiritual experience, and once you truly hear the message of God, only then can you grasp the "true" meanings from the
texts and interpret them correctly. Because when you actually experience the overwhelming power which is truth and love, there is no "faith"
needed. "Faith" in God is wrong. Truth is infinitely powerful, receiving and giving love, which grows throughout the universe. When this
"truth" is known, there is no denying its presence, as it hits you with the force of sheer realization and clearness, to which it cannot be
questioned. All of the "teachings" of the bible, the vedas, etc...are not things that are to be learned from another person. These teachings are
simply universal ways of existing with others, and can only be truly realized once you see that we are all from the same spirit. These teachings are
only describing a way of understanding which must be reached. The Bhagavad-Gita explains it very well.
Truth and light are within, so you need only find a quiet dark room in solitude in order to see the light...although it is not as simple as this, it
is POSSIBLE for anyone to do this. When you "hear" the message of truth, you will achieve a greater understanding of existence and the universe
than is possible to learn through science, or any other person. It is understanding and realization on an entirely different level than what we, as
humans, know. But you can find it.
Send me a u2u if you have any questions or need help finding this path. When the light is found, it must shine for all to see...
