That which is often times sacred today was a simple tool or idea in ancient times. Because of ignorance (not knowing) we worship ideas as sacred without background knowledge of its origin or intent. This ignorance of origin is the main reason for Christian Dogma.
Let’s consider an ancient psychological diagnostic tool that became sacred in religion because of ignorance.
How do you know when you are making progress on your personal journey? Answer: When the things that bothered you before no longer have the same effect. This then becomes a self-evident mechanism to recognize you for you, by you and not needing outside validation.
This idea of change and transformation was expressed in a simple framework in ancient times that is stated in many different ways but expressing the same concept. This framework is preserved in the bible via a number of scriptures.
Many of the Christian ideas that we have professed as sacred knowledge is based on ancient African mythology that the Greeks and Romans in ancient times never knew or understood the meaning of. Couple that with the Western understanding mythology from a Greek perspective of being fairytales with form but no substance and we become totally lost to the science involved in the ancient symbolism of mythology.
The idea of Jesus is a case in point of something “sacred” that became facts for people that didn’t understand or know the origin of the ideas. Because they were ignorant of the origin it became basically superstitious worship. The idea that became Jesus is based in the ancient burial customs of Africa, specifically Egypt. The rituals and customs grew from the spiritual beliefs of the people and their connection to nature.
Ancient Egyptians got a lot of their belief systems that came up through the Nile from interior Africa. Africans did not believe in death. They viewed existence as a series of cycles that never end. The physical body, for them, was a transitory vehicle for the soul.
The body was temporary and expressing the soul (the real you) in physical form. The body “trapped” the soul and when the body died the soul would exit go through a spiritual “obstacle course” to develop some new skills and then return to earth and be born again to live in another body.
Knowing ancient beliefs is a key
When you understand the ancient Kemetic/Egyptian beliefs about the soul and its transition into the body as the primary “you,” the hidden meaning in many scriptures will be unlocked.
You also must understand that the ideas work on multiple levels. The literal and metaphysical, concrete and abstract, because they are Universal principles or as the ancients said, divine.
The Scripture John 10:30 “I and the father are one”, is expressing a relationship on a literal level, but is also expressing, metaphorically, the Kemetic belief in cycles on another level. But even deeper it is also expressing a universal principle that can be applied in daily life.
The universal principles were personified in myth. Hence Heru (principle of perpetual renewal) stated about Ausar (the death) “I and the father are one” over 5,000 years ago, in the Egyptian book of coming forth by day (book of the dead).
The principle is expressing the idea that from death something is renewed or reborn. For the ancient Egyptians, death and the new life are simply two sides of the same coin.
Old consciousness versus New consciousness
When you change beliefs about a situation or event, the old consciousness in you dies and a new consciousness is born from within. It’s two sides of the same coin. John 10:30 “I and the father are one” expresses this idea as a formula that can be applied deeper than simply stating a believed relationship to Jesus and God.
Another way to state this same idea is when you change your beliefs the old aspect of you “dies” and the new aspect is “reborn” or resurrected. The same event that used to cause you to have a big emotional reaction now genuinely doesn’t bother you anymore. THAT’S when you recognize change from within you.
The death of the old you is connected to the new you. Without the death, the new you couldn’t emerge. The ancients recognized this simple truth with the axiom “I and the father are one.” The “father” was the cyclical principle of Ausar.
Dogma keeps you trapped
Paul who supposedly was a Gnostic (No historical record of Paul exists) said it this way, Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
If you know the belief system (Kemetic) that Paul got his ideas from you can recognize an aspect of the cyclical expression of life. As Dogma, you think he is talking about Jesus.
He is saying that one aspect of himself died (crucified) but the new aspect now lives transformed within him. The spirit “gave” itself to bring him (Paul) to life.
Without the Dogma, this becomes a very deep and revealing principle to understanding what happens psychologically when we change. But you must know the backdrop and origin of the biblical teachings to extract the wisdom or you think it is about something Jesus did.
The ancient science is empowering idea and tool for personal understanding! The religious dogma is debilitating.
