NOTIONS AND PHRASES FROM THE GOSPEL OF TRUTH



Various books (1e: "The Holy Blood, and the Holy Grail" and I think even
"The Da Vinci Code")have suggested that the Christ and Mary
Magdelene had children, and that somehow this holy bloodline is
significant, the fact that He had sex with Mary.
I don't see why whether the Saviour had sex with Mary
makes any difference, even if they had children, what I say is: "Big deal!"
Most of the Christian world has intuited that there was something more going
on with Mary than with the other disciples. And the HOLY BLOOD is passed on through the EUCHARIST and the CHRISM, not through bodily procreation.

There is a passage in the GOSPEL OF PHILIP, when Peter and the disciples complain to Jesus and ask him: "Why do you spend so much time with Mary and kiss her on the mouth?"
This kiss is sometimes spoken of in the early Christian texts
as imparting a spirit and a knowledge. So this kissing may not have been
sexual, but even if it were, it makes not the slightest difference. Even if
the Christ had physical children (and this is by no means certain),
it doesn't mean that the children were given the EUCHARIST from the
Christ.
Much is made of the phrases "CREATING" and "BEGETTING"
in the GOSPEL OF PHILIP. I'll let you decide which one is which, but
through one process the recipient of GRACE from the Master is made a SON.
Male and female are made one.
One who enters the BRIDAL CHAMBER might emerge
a changed person in this mirrored chamber of purification; and if the seeker
passes through the white fire and light of the CHRISM: "They shall not be
called Christians, but Christs."*****
And the MASTER says: "Do not call me Master, for he who drinks of the waters of my mouth, SHALL BECOME AS I AM AND I SHALL BE HE,
and the hidden things will be revealed to him."
What we are talking about in the Gospel Of Philip, and clearly what Jesus Christ was talking about is a REVELATION so deep, a
REALIZATION so complete as to change the IDENTITY of the seeker: to reveal
to the seeker the nature of his ultimate identity.
"BLESSED IS HE WHO WAS, BEFORE HE CAME INTO BEING."
"BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM."









What I am attempting to impart to my readers is this: there are a lot more fundamental and significant challenges that this ancient but new to us material brings than whether Jesus Christ had children. One thing is sure and this is, the Christ had many spiritual children: "through the Holy Spirit
we are 'begotten'." He still has spiritual children

"While we are in this world, it is fitting for us to acquire
the RESURRECTION, so that when we strip off the flesh, we may be found in rest and not walk in the midst." GOSPEL OF PHILIP

"He who realizes the meaning of these words will not taste death." GOSPEL OF THOMAS

NO ONE CAN CONTROL THIS...AWAKENING

       
I'm starting to have spiritual feelings in our Gnostic Gospels  group.

So I ask myself, "How can this be?"

Then I thought... You have assembled 600 spiritual people from around the globe - all of us focusing on the same thing. What do you think would happen?

The Grace of the Lord of Hosts and the power 
of returning Christ is now infusing this gathering with kinship and insight.

If 2 people in one place pray to Christ, Christ will attend them. How much more so if 600 people focusing on Christ and the Lord of Hosts, how much more will happen?

We are starting to see this.

It's mysterious, the movements of the Lord. And no one can predict His coming or His actions... who can predict what is happening now?

I feel this. I feel Grace enter the room and enlighten my spirit and my thought. I feel Grace enter all of us.

Who could predict this? Through a digital medium like the internet.  Who could predict that holy communion might arise?

THE NATURE OF THE GNOSTIC EXPERIENCE


The pursuit of the knowing experience that is Gnosis is not an intellectual pursuit.

It is necessary to find a higher faculty with which to apprehend reality.

It's like facing a wall in utter darkness
and using all concentration to pierce it.

Or like reaching behind you in the dark 
trying to find your pillow.

It helps if you have a question to which 
you passionately need to find the answer.

Build up a great wall of doubt
and face it.

Focusing your mind to one point
will help you.

Explaining what happens in the Experience
is impossible. This is why some teachers
insist on no reliance on words.

If I had to use a word, I might call it
an implosion.

Once this happens you might feel you 
know all there is to know and yet you 
know nothing.

Your sight changes irrevocably, also
your sense of identity.

If you think in Christian terms, you might
call the Experience miraculous.

If you have the Experience on other
spiritual paths, you will certainly call
it astounding.


See? I have used too many words already!

CRAFT SAILING TO THE SEA

CRAFT SAILING TO THE SEA




Many stories I have told,
So many that they seem to be
Many children, young and old
In sailing crafts towards the sea

But one thing I have not said           
For none can see or search or reach
The divinity that greet men’s end
No one can bespeak


Divine forces all around
Light the jeweled axle tree
Perchance some wonder you have found
Will grant an inner ray of peace

Armies in the crimson earth
March with elephants and chimes
The valley of the Indus plains
Before beyond and after time.

AND THE BUDDHA MIND INSIDE YOUR MIND ALREADY IS THE HEART AND MIND OF CHRIST



        There are many paths to the same place.


RIVER WATCHING MEDITATION

         I've done  enough meditation to know that the spirit world is real..I can feel various minds and souls touch me at night sometimes when I'm doing  sitting.
         It is said that the Buddha mind could penetrate walls and reach people far away, and sometimes several people at once. The heart-mind of Christ is highly mobile also
          
         It's called meditation for the Christians, zazen for our Buddhist friends... and there are other names, methods and paths. 


          I do know you must not cling to your thoughts.
Watch them pass through your mind like leaves being washed downriver. 
Watch the river within pass by.  DO NOT TRY TO QUIET THE MIND.

        If you are in difficult situations - losing your wife, or losing your job - or if you are in competition with someone else over something you both consider valuable. Try to set these dramas aside a bit, and don't
give them any more power than they already have. Let these situations float a bit downriver also.
         Allow some of these people, or situations, or valuable prizes to remain in the large window of your mind - but off to the side somewhere. Believe me, you have that power.
          Don't think that meditation is difficult; its easy, People avoid it because they think it's hard work; in fact, it is a great luxury. It's the greatest luxury ever known to human kind.
          Now the voices will come. The voices and memories and   pictures in you mind of someone you have loved: maybe that person has passed away, or is lost to you for some reason.
       Let these loves and bright moments enter  your mind. And take the time to examine these beloved memories; and do not be ashamed to shed a few tears. We all do. 
          Tears are OK. And after a time, maybe after a few days days of communion with loved ones, you are able to clear your mind. We don't talk of emptying the mind, or forcing
your mind to be silent and absolutely still. It's impossible! 
The river always flows inside you. Don't try to stop it. In fact, do not try!
          
((Don't try to do anything at all. And  don't seek either. What is it that  we lack? What is it that we must seek,  that we do not have within us already?
            What is it  that makes us run back and forth purchasing things?))

the STREETBOYS CALL MARIA



THE STREETBOYS CALL MARIA - Having traveled to some large cities in South America, I noticed crowds of homeless children. They seemed to work as gangs in order to survive. There was one lady of the evening who used to feed the children at cafes. I met Maria there and sat with her and watched her selfless generosity. So I wrote this song. (C) 1990-2018 by W.G. Milne Hope you like this one. This one's for Maria.

WON'T YOU PLEASE COME AND LIE WITH ME





"Name doesn't matter

For the water

Dancing where you are


Whatever you're after

Whatever ladder

You follow to the stars





And won't you please

Come and lie with me?

A lady smiled to say


You've been with me

For five centuries

Anyway."


Name doesn't matter
For the waters
Dancing in the moon

Call me with rivers
Call me with laughter
Call me late or soon

And won't you please
Come and lie with me
A lady smiled to say

You've been with me
For five centuries
Anyway

TROUT LAKE MONSTER

Trout Lake Monster

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigationJump to search
The Trout Lake Monster is an alleged animal, identified neither as to family or species, but claimed to inhabit Trout Lake inOntario. There is a controversy amongst the residents of North BayOntario regarding the existence of the creature. Some residents say that there have been long-time stories of large swells of water, shadows, and figures of various proportions and sizes, while others say that these claims have only come about in modern times. The story of the monster amplified after the mysterious disappearance of Margaret and Allen Campbell (along with their family dog) who went missing May 25, 1956. Apparently, after eating lunch they went out in their fiberglass boat, and were never seen again.[1][2] In 2006 the Ontario Provincial Police, on a lead from a recreational fisherman; using high-tech imaging equipment were lucky to discover both bodies on the bottom of the lake, not far from the couple's cabin. Their boat was also found nearby on the bottom of the lake. Additionally, a local resident on Trout Lake discovered a large tooth when swimming at Camp Island. This tooth was brought to the Ministry of Natural Resources and destroyed in an alleged conspiracy.
Local sightings of the "monster" have included monstrous muskie, crocodile/alligator-like creatures, and serpent-like creatures.[1]

Trivia[edit]

There is a local North Bay band called The Trout Lake Monsters.[1]


I have known the Trout Lake Monster, because it used to sleep on my property. 

Sometimes when I awake at 3:00A.M. and the moon is full,
 I hear snuffling and grunting under the pine forest and among birches... it appears to have irridescent scales. It crawls on it's stomach sometimes and slithers like a snake amid the sacred mushrooms. It marks its territory often... and leaves a disgusting viscous scent, which is sticky if stepped on.

 He has teeth like a werewolf and yellow eyes at night, which turn an evil red in the morning. Whether it is reptile or humanoid, I'm not sure, as yet. The beast can rise on his hind legs and howl... a chattering high-pitched howl that makes the dogs bark past midnight, all along the shores of the bottomless lake.

The other morning I almost screamed when I saw my own eyes in the mirror. They were an evil red, also. More on this later... I almost dropped to my knees and prayed to the Great Spirit.

"Lord, tell me I haven't mated with the beast. And my eyes are changing already."

It is well-known folklore around deep Trout Lake. No one knows how far these caverns go, how dark and how distant... There are rumours. And we all know in this territory...

 All things are possible in the dark.

NOTES FROM THE FEMALE ORGASM CLINIC

    

        There are  scores of hard-working,
earnest women in this country, who cannot quite
reach orgasm – due to a fucked-up
religious upbringing… with all those
hidden messages…
         “You can`t do this… God will never forgive you;
you can`t do that, you`ll be stepping into
the devil`s lair” Hogwash and bullshit! But if
we have these hidden, unspoken messages 
deep down inside… they can be terrible inhibitors.
         These messages we absorb from early
childhood never have to face a critical
arbiter … They have crept  into your system
before you could think, before you ever
wanted to think.
         So now you have these unseen messages
in your system which inform your actions…
and you don`t even know about them…
A religious voice from your grandma could 
be saying, “You can`t relax now… not when
you`re naked. People want to USE  you!
So tighten up, tense up and be on your guard!”
          And these messages will not be overcome
unless the stimulus is strong.  That`s why
I advocate the use of vibrators in stubborn cases,
and pneumatic drills if necessary!
          Whatever it takes! There must be
a coup within… The unseen moralistic
voices must be overthrown in your inner kingdom.
          It`s often not easy….In a thirty-five
year old woman, the inner regime has had
lots of time to build up its defences – 30 years
of re-enforcing the walls… You`ll never reach
orgasm with normal sex… maybe later, yes,
but now what you need, dear lady, is an
irresistible invading force that will break
down any resisting scruples you have…
when you`re “doing the dirty deed”, “acting
like a dog in the street”
 dealing with the urges that come from
“Down There!”
           Perhaps this is why most women
have secret rape fantasies that they tell no
one about… because they need that restrictive
moralistic citadel within to be overthrown.
           Often it takes more than one person
working together in the `invading force`
in order to breach the walls.
          All those sayings parents come up with
when they`re trying to tell you how special
you are: “A person of your quality need never cry.”
That`s a dandy one.
          Parents are not trying to twist and screw
up your love life beyond all recognition. No,
parents for the most part are trying to protect
you. And you knew that and your trusted them and
you believe everything they say….
        No critical arbiter  need be passed. These
parental sayings in early childhood never have to
“clear customs, so to speak”.  They never pass
through a rational assessment… And deep
down inside. they might be your dearest beliefs.
         There are many kinds of tragedy, and being
blown up by a bomb is just one of them, living
in a psychological trap is a kind of death
also.
          For this reason the psychologist should stay
here, deal with the stricken you have around
you. Forget about going East.
          The clinic needs the help. We need every 
psychologically-trained brain and every sense
of humour we can find.

          Laughter’s just the tiniest bit like
orgasm, isn’t it?

REALIZATION (FOUNDATION EXPERIENCE)


When I was relatively young, I had a Realization, foundation experience in Christian terms I had no idea what had happened to me. There are no recent writings about this in Christian literature... I had to go to a Zen temple to find out what had happened. Philip Kapleau helped me. He was the master there and a great guy. ........It is necessary to create a tradition in terms of the Christ............ The Gnostics knew about it thousands of years ago....But that stream of enlightenment practice was terminated by the Empire church ...............................................................................That is why I am teaching this now. It is necessary to re-establish the path.

        I went to  a party last night. We brought
 mickeys of vodka. Then it turned out my
 host had hidden 2 more bottles away.
         
          Everybody has anger and grief 
problems. All of us are walking away with 
horrible problems of tension, despair and
and confusion... The path was
 DELIBERATELY obscured... the path to 
deep truth.

          When I learned these facts to be 
actual, as a young man I was enraged. The
supposed source of spirituality lied to us
and told us a simplistic fairy tale.
          The Empire church hid the real 
sources of the Christian path --- and put a 
simplistic Monopoly in their place... They 
lied to us! And then they offered us 
forgiveness for a price. Talk about sin!
          We were conned. Lied to about the 
nature of sin and they controlled us...
Despicable!

           That's what I say.

            It's good to have a blowout party 
from time to time, under these 
circumstances!

            Get rid of all that tension, shame
 and guilt that was artificially induced.
