Through my research on the religions of old (Sumer/Mesop., Egyptian, Hindu, Hebrew etc.) I've come to the personal conclusion that at a time long ago
there was a civilization (Atlantis, Lemuria, Mu or what have you) that once thrived and was interconnected throughout the earth. We all know the tale
about how that civilization came to an end.
My guess is that they were of two kinds as we are; with good intentions, and with bad intentions.
Now it seems as though if one researches these things(the religions and their myths) thoroughly enough one begins to see a pattern that it's all the
same religion. Because their language was based more on action reference and interpretation through context as opposed to our thorough narration, they
had an even more multi-faceted language than most of ours are today.
Because of that, one can read multiple, sometimes dozen of things out of a single word, sentence or a paragraph (good example is "ehyeh asher
Now it seems as though that the power hungry in the world all throughout history have kept hidden both sides of the coin:
1. The mystery religion of the world (nature, torah, the law, universe) which is more outward than inward but deals somewhat on the inward through
manipulation of our qualities.
2. The mystery religion of beyond the world (Jesus, Buddha etc.) which is more inward and deals with unlocking your true self and thus freeing
yourself from the burden of the world.
Now it seems as though both ways are a progression of their own. But to what direction is what differs. You can look at it like the Jedi's in Star
Like one user mentioned before me that it was probably at the time when Christianity was made state religion in Constantinopel by Constantine
throughout the Roman empire that "paganism" infiltrated the christian thinking. And of course through the other church councils and other things.
If one looks at the words of Jesus, Buddha and others who found heaven within themselves one can see that they are only talking about that, but
through the manipulation of "the laws of the world (mathematics, gematria, and astrology f.ex.) pagans who rewrote the original books (the masoretes,
the copy scriptures, and later church men) over and over again to perfect their hidden knowledge of the material world.
To strengthen my point: The passage where Jesus talks about people not cleaning their inner cup but rather only their outer cup./ He was simply
shaming people for not trying to perfect themselves in their inner qualities towards that which is all good. But are only interested in outwardly
things: Vanity; honor amongst people or f.ex.: astroldlogy, science etc.
Thus he said; Clean your inner cup, and your outer cup will be clean also. (paraphrased with same conclusion)
So, he was not against the dabbles of the "occult de mysterioso" rather that they would be used for good, thus, cleansing ourselves on the inside,
where heaven is. For certainly we are in this world when we are and thus we cannot escape living the world, but that doesn't mean one has to neglect
his inner outer-worldly nature which comes quite easily once well on the way.
For like he said, broad is the opening of the road that leads to devastation and it's end a bottleneck, narrow is the opening of the road to salvation
and it's end broad. (paraphrashed with same conclusion)
So no, Christ did not teach us what was worldly, though he no doubt knew all these things also. He even disses the pharisees over this saying; Why
should I reveal to you that which is heavenly when you cannot understand when I talk of worldly things? (Paraphrased with same conclusion).
Are you clean on the inside? 'Cause the outside does not matter as much (you decide if pun or not

Forgot to congratulate you on your first thread. It is mighty well hypothesized, well versed, not to astray from reality, but I suggest you at least
ponder on what I commented on. Those who rule abide by simple rules in basic. One being: If we don't have it, we sure will. Sadly...
Great to have great minds joining here with good ideas and showing that not all is concrete in our past observations and accepted dogmatism.

May god bestow his cornerstone of care, love, happiness, belief, faith and hope upon you.
