116 TO MEET HEAVEN. TO BE ONE WITH THE ETERNAL
The Angel Gabriel came to the virgin Mary. We and animals, vegetables, stones, fire, water.. belong to the
Angels worlds which watch over us. Many of us are less evolved souls. Herod was fetched from lower worlds and became such a king which we deserve. After death he did perhaps temporarily become a royal swineherd or a "king Tantalus" in a Purgatory. Our worlds are as a masked ball where souls get rôles
by Grace and what we deserve by Justice or what is valuable lessons. Christ is a heavenly "Priest-King
Some witness that they have as Mary met elevated beings Our mystics do even witness about being One with the Eternal, absolute , endless beyond illusive duality beyond "Holy and not Holy". That Reality is unspeakable, "Nobody" or "Empty" from human point of view A religious message is hat we are all pre-existent in the eternal Being before time and space. (Eph 1.4) But we witness that we here meet the Eternal manifested as Spirit and Matter which two manifestations of the Eternal if often symbolised as a male God and a female Goddess. The male God is often said to incarnate ("The Word becomes flesh" ) and the Goddess if often said to have a material side symbolised as a women (Eve Maria etc) The material manifestation of the Eternal is sometimes said to be resisting the Spiritual side, or giving that resistance which is necessary for our evolution or pilgrimage to re-absorption Involution is sometimes symbolised by
a female or by an Angel who is Devil from our point of view. "Satan" means (the necessary) opponent.
What is the truth when we meet heavenly helpers and that we sometimes, as in the Pentecost-story do
hear some speak to us with our own language or do educate us without words. Is the appearance of Christ illusion? In mental hospitals are patients who witness unbelievable experiences . Many try to find explanation in Bibles, medical books, psychological ideas of Jung , unconscious levels of our nature"
A "realist" dislikes the statement that Christ appears in different shapes. On the way to Emmaus did He appeared in a new form. And in The Revelations" was He seen as "a son of man dressed in a robe reaching down to His feet with a golden sash around his chest. His head and hair were white like wool, as white snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire (Rev 1 14) He was as a lamb looking as if it had been slain (Rev 5 6) and as the Word of God, the King, who is the Judge (Rev 19 11) St Bridget did witness that she saw Christ as the new-born child . St Francis witnessed that he heard Jesus Christ from the crucifix say: "Go and rebuild my degenerated Church"
Ramakrishna witnessed that he did meet Christ who embraced him and went into him. The Hindu guru did hear the words: "This is Christ, the Great Yogi who lives in eternal union with God" Ramakrishna did reach to believe that Christ is one of the incarnations of God and the same God as will meet us in the depth of all religions. Mose witnessed that God talked to him from a flame of fire in the midst of a thorn-bush (Exodus 3 2). Plotinus witnessed about a vision of God in a female heavenly shape. Many imagine God as male but Gnostic Christians talk as Christ Himself of "my Mother, the Holy Spirit" Most priests are hired shepherds and do only preach what they are paid to declare. If then a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit…(Math 15 14 ) One priest told us that Christ had appeared to him with one single question: "Shall even you betray me?" The priest became shocked and confused
Many of us are still spiritually blind but some witness that Christ and "the Mother of God", saints and angels have
appeared in earthly and heavenly form and without form, as heavenly consciousness which conveys Gnosis about Life, death, eternity. Christ appears as Peace which passeth dualistic understanding. We have seen Him as Divine Child on the lap of God the Mother and experienced something of her consciousness: that Holy Ghost-consciousness.
Christ has given some of us to experience how during the Eucharist the divine consciousness incarnates in bread and wine-juice and transubstantiates it or taking the human body of the devotee and going into it, using it as the bread and transubstantiating it so that the human being temporary experience what transubstantiating is. Christ did so temporary incarnate his divine consciousness in the devotee . We have experienced him as a poor "Episcopi Vagantes", the highest bishop who walk with us the pilgrimage to the ONE. He does so educate us Himself or through his Angels or
Real Saints. The common "saints" of the Church-organizations are most often not what Heavens names saints
We witness that God has given us to experience Angels of Justice and Grace who incarnate in and with us. We are told that a meaning of life here is that we shall reach "the other shore" in the sense consciousness of the Kingdom of heavens. Different words and symbols in all our religions and their gnosis try to express and help different souls .
Saint Paul writes about his visions and that he has been given to hear words which belong to heavens. Christ himself
tells us about pre-existence, that John the Baptist is a reincarnation of the prophet Elia We are told that the Holy Spirit will guide us to the whole truth. . The Gnostic Christ enlightens us about that we are emanated out of the absolute pre-existence and that we will be perfected and reabsorbed in the absolute reality beyond opposites and that all religions will be a unit in purified forms. Christ said "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear" (John 16. 12) "I have been speaking figuratively ..but I will tell you plainly " (John 16 25). He said ."The knowledge of the secrets of the Kingdom of heaven has been given to you but not to them (Math 13 11)(Mark 4 11) When he was alone the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. He told them "Secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you,. But too those on the outside everything in parables"
The Annunciation of the Virgin Mary can be interpreted in many ways. Mary can symbolise a refined human soul who is blessed by Gabriel who is a manifestation of the Holy Spirit. The Maria-soul is later on incarnating the Word. We are in different aspects Mary, Gabriel, Christ, and we are deepest the Eternal temporary manifested and eternally not manifested. The birth of Mary may symbolise birth of matter and the Assumption of our Lady may symbolise how matter is reabsorbed in the Eternal . "Virgin" is sometimes a word for a soul guided by the higher nature and not by the personal limited self and its desires. Real saints are "Virgins" as the Lady Mary in that symbolic sense
