ORIGINS AND SECRETS: THE GRAIL QUEST


The early Christians were the pioneers of our civilization, more so than the puritans who came over on the Mayflower, more so that Cartier or Champlain, these families lived together
and all they had they shared, for the love of the Living One who had walked among them.
They were psychological pioneers, and don't you forget it! One of two basic paths they followed: (1) the path of highly disciplined asceticism ie: no sex, very little booze, plenty of meditation before dawn - and afterwards: silence perhaps for weeks, and meals would be a type of communion. Some individuals undoubtedly went off into the hills in a Vision Quest and ate
manna, bread left to them by God and found in the early morning hours when the dew was
still on the creation and and corruption had not yet come.
Now this was a tough way of life, make no mistake. No distractions, for FORGETTING
was the enemy. No T.V., no cars (O.K., there were camels and donkeys and goats, if you were
lucky) Meals were at set hours. There rest of the time was spent focusing on the Reality of the
One Who Is Creating Us. Remember this process we embody is constantly renewing Itself.
Just check out Quantum Physics to get an idea of the interior picture of the Mind of God.
REMEMBER THIS: SPACE IS NOT THE LAST FRONTIER; THE MIND IS THE LAST
FRONTIER.*
The early workers in CHRIST were the pioneers. We still are the pioneers. But we cannot do our work with blindfolds on, such as the church has imposed on us; if we are to truly know the
nature of the psyche, if we are to realize the MIND of GOD, we must have all time and space
before us and open to us. And this means INTERIOR SPACE, too, the ability to study and contemplate the space within, which is just as vast, and perhaps more interesting in the immediate future than exterior space.
Of course one space mirrors the other. The inner is as the outer, the above is the below.
But this is another topic for another day. If we have another day.
Here's a discussion from the Gospel of Truth, another GOSPEL which SHOULD have been
included in the BIBLE, which is now being included in the Bible*****.
________________________________

There's a notion called "THE MIDST' which these early pioneers used. Those who were ignorant of the Father and of his Son who comes from the bosom of the Father, those who lived in IGNORANCE lived in THE MIDST. Ignorance is the source of evil and evil is the source of ignorance.For those who were ignorant of the Father/Christ:"it was terror and disturbance and instability and doubt and division, there were many illusions at work by means of these and there were empty fictions as if they were sunk in sleep- and found themselves in disturbing dreams. Either there is a place to which they are fleeing or without strength they come from
having chased after others, or they are involved in striking blows or they are receiving blows themselves, or they have fallen from high places, or they take off into the air thought they do not even have wings. Again sometimes it is as if people were murdering them, though there is no one even pursuing them, or they themselves are killing their neighbours, for they have been stained with their blood. When those who are going through all these things wake up, they see nothing,
they who are in THE MIDST of all these disturbances, for they are nothing. * Such is they way of those who have cast ignorance aside from them like sleep, not esteeming it as anything, nor do they esteem its works as solid things either, but they leave them behind like a dream in the night.
The knowledge of the Father they value as the dawn. This is the way each one has acted,
as though asleep at the time when he was ignorant. And this is the way he has come to knowledge, as if he had awakened.
Good for the man who will return and awaken. And blessed is he who has opened the eyes of the blind.
(Thank you Harold Attridge and George MacRae for the translation).

O.K., a few points. Living in "the midst" is living in hell. Ignorance is the reason we live in
hell. Hell exists in the past, the present and the future, but it is not eternal. There is no such thing as eternal damnation.
Many will disagree, but THESE ARE THE FACTS!
(Editors' Note: Our Reporter is rarely humble.But he never
gets the story wrong).

The only thing that is eternal is the Mind at the Eye of God. The Mind of God knows the eternal: all past and future are present in the Mind of God. The Mind of God lives in the present; MYTH is the language of the present, of eternal realms, the "Dream Time" (see
Joseph Campbell). This is the meaning of the archetypes, entities, psychological realities
which exist forever in that frontier land, the Mind, the place the adventurous must study.
Now, more than ever, we need adventurous souls: brave souls who are willing to risk their
lives in the pursuit of the dangerous truth. I can assure you of one thing. This quest for the truth,this quest for Awakening; it is the real Grail Quest.
The adventurer, who sets out upon this path, will be forced to give up nothing less than everything.
This the Master assures us.

RELIGION AND IMAGINATIVE LITERATURE


When I was at the University of Toronto, I had a great teacher. His name was Father Belyea.
He taught a course with the above title. I do this blog and research in his honour.

The words, "Roving Reporter" together with the logo is copywrited: ( C ) 1982.
The logo is not posted yet.



First, we must go into religious history if we are to understand our present circumstance.

Christianity in the West labours under some basic misconceptions. It appears that we have been deliberately led into this false position of misunderstanding. Subsequently, well-meaning
priests and ministers have used their best efforts to make a patchwork quilt of our knowledge of the Christ.

Providentially, the power of God is such that no misconception can continue forever. Ancient
holy books that have been suppressed throughout Christian history are just now coming to light 2,000 years after the death of the Master.

"Do not call me 'Master' for he who drinks from my mouth will become as I am and I shall be
he, and the hidden things shall be revealed to him."

This is a passage from the Gospel of Thomas, one of the holy books rejected by the Council of Nicea, 425A.D. It looks as if the compilation of the Bible at that time was put together by
what we today would call "The Chamber of Commerce."

And why would this be? The teachings of Christ were too strong. Imagine what would happen
to property law if we were to take His precepts seriously.

Also, the very nature of our understanding of Christ would have been fundamentally changed
had we possessed these holy books hidden for two millennia. Just meditate on the
words, 'he will becomes as I am'.

These words imply that the one who follows Christ and drinks the waters from His mouth will
not merely gain in faith, but will undergo a basic change of identity. Clear your mind of thought
and think on this!





Think of this Blog as a course at the University.

Please read the Gospel of Thomas before my next blog, when we will go deeper into
the matter.
Forum for discussion will be set up later.
