I see the human body as a vehicle for the soul. We are not our bodies. I like your vision of the body as a universe with 50 trillion cells. To me,
the most amazing part is the soul and spirit. We are baptized into the water of the material world. In Ancient Hebrew, the water represents the
In John 3, Jesus tells Nicodemus that, "You must be born again." To me this indicates there is not an option. Either we are baptized into the water
of the body, or we can escape back to the spirit and receive a new vehicle. Either way, we are born again. Jesus outlines the process in this
chapter. In essence, the earth is a womb. We gain union with the spirit to transcend the roots of the tree of life below. As above, so below. We
then bear fruit on the tree above and these seeds make our new vehicle. Related
In Luke 10, Jesus tells the expert in the law that a person must love God and love others to receive eternal life. He goes on to define others as all
men, including enemies. This then fits into his overall message of turning the other cheek and blessing those who curse you. In other words, a
complete removal of pride and self-will. This allows us the freedom of non-attachment.
This type of renunciation does not mean to go live in a cave. It means that you can release yourself from the things you own and see all of what you
surround yourself with as gifts from God. It is then easier to share what you possess with others. Ultimately, the single thing that you need to be
willing to release is your own self. The body must not be seen as a possession.
It is only the
temporary tent that you rest in as you travel the wilderness of life.
Again, back to the ancient Hebrew. The definition of the Father, Son and God will allow you to see the plan. The father is represented by the ox and
the tent opening. This is the strength of the house. God, or EL, is represented by the ox and the shepherd staff. This is the strength along the
journey as God leads you on the path of life. The shepherd's staff is also the pole that holds up the tent. The Father sits at the opening of the
tent protecting the family and the Son is pictured by the seed and the tent opening. This is the continuation of the family as it grows. It is also
related to the development of intelligence.

Also, keep in mind, as you examine the pictographs
of Ancient Hebrew, that each root word is then related to many other words in meaning. Each new word from the root branches off, like a tree, to tell
the overall story. There is much more there than what I explain.
