You are asking questions that I was asking 20 years ago. After reading thousands of books and seeking these answers, the final answer comes down to
human weakness and lack of infinite perspective. Our minds are suited to slow growth. Alchemy is a term that relates to the transition of substance
from gross to subtle. The transition of metals from state to state finally ends in perfection as gold. All life makes this journey to the most
subtle and perfected state possible. All nature is in a perfected state. Humans are placed in this garden to learn the story. All aspects of nature
tell the same story to our minds. Symbols are a reflection of this story nature tells.
Metal and mental are similar words with similar alchemical meanings. Nature takes the unrefined state of a life-form and perfects it over time. This
process is a natural transition from gross to subtle. It is is possible, with both mental and metal, to speed up the process. You are currently
using the process a alchemy to produce faster results with your mind. This is the hidden meaning behind 100% of the symbols you are viewing. The
meaning of my words contribute to this process for you and for me. When a person teaches, they learn twice.
Our minds are geared toward this search for truth and meaning. Symbols are images that speak in layers like an onion. For instance:
You can view the ratio 1:1.618 as the Greek symbol for phi
. Phi also stands for the golden ratio. It also
stands for the golden spiral. The golden spiral also indicates the fingerprint of the creator in all of creation. And on, and on we go. One symbol
now speaks more to the mind than the outer layer of the onion. When you get to the core of all symbols, you arrive at the inner court of truth. When
the Bible says, "Do not cast pearls before swine" it is referring to the following area of refinement:
There are two perspectives to all truths by degree. This is referred to as the outer court and the inner court.
The outer court of truth is held by the profane. This is a term that describes individuals with a low sense of symbolic meaning to their thinking and
reasoning. If it is possible to rise to new life, it is also possible to sink to new lows. Swine is a term to describe the profane who refuse truth.
The profane treat sacred topics with abuse, irreverence and contempt. You see many people doing this on ATS from ignorance. Sacred knowledge is
obtained by reflection on spiritual understanding. Spiritual understanding is protected from those who abuse the power contained in the meaning. How
many people on earth abuse truth for advantage?
The inner court of truth is held by the elect. This term describes the individual that has a high sense of symbolic meaning in their thinking and
reasoning. The elect treat sacred topics with honor and respect, realizing where this knowledge originates. Spiritual reasoning is attained by first
recognizing that there is a hidden hand in all creation. This is referred to as faith in the Holy Spirit of God. We all have a piece of this spirit
within. Each life-form is an artificial creation with consciousness. This consciousness is spirit. We have an unrefined spirit that is moving
closer to dividing the light from the darkness. Over time, the spirit is refined by God. Light must be shined on the spirit in stages or the light
blinds. God cannot shine all the light on us or we would be destroyed. Our eyes must adjust as we emerge from the cave of ignorance.
Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is unbelief in the pre-existence of this spirit. This is unbelief. Science is blinded to the truth of spiritual
matters because their main platform of reasoning excludes God. Our education into science happens on God's schedule and not ours. Jewish scientists
are responsible for the vast majority of major discoveries in this world. Israel is the light unto nations.
As you study any esoteric tradition, you will find belief in God. Intent and the drawing of implications is another matter. The Bible is the root of
all knowledge related to spirit. It contains all the layers of the onion in their correct format and order. All symbols that you can find in
religion or traditions arising from religion are there to lead the mind toward the inner court of knowledge. This is why some religions lead to
stealing, killing and destroying. Some beliefs originate form a counterfeit source. Only the Bible originates from the correct source.
To save you time, I can give you the inner meaning of all traditions:
Read 1 Corinthians 13, then work your way back through the symbols. You will find Jesus at the epicenter; at the tipping point; at the apex of all
that arises beyond. Jesus is the source of all streams that flow away and then back again. Look up the term LOGOS and you will see how this works.
