LIES vs ACTUALITY – THE PARABLE OF THE DYER

“ANGEL AT THE GATES”

Again I ask you for your strength, for I have no

strength of my own, only the strength that you have

have given me.

*

O holy one of Israel and Albion, God of Abraham and Isaac,

God of the north, west and east, thank you for your

Grace, thank you for your gifts, thank you for the truth

that you have given us. O Father, Lord of hosts,

you who ride the clouds

and pierce the clouds with the brightest light of

illumination, I greet you again.

I ask you to fill us with your light, as

you have done before, and fill this room again

with you Grace so that I may speak the truth.

*

O Lord of the Meeting Rivers, Lord on high,

you have given us love of the Mother and the

Earth, our mother; you are aware that our

adoration of the Mother is the love of

you, the most high.

*

Help me teach your

mysterious message: to your children.

You are the Lord of the Indus plains,

Lord of the south, the red earth; you are

Father of the Caribbean Islands

and Lord of the sea. You are the incandescent

light at the core of me; you are the mystic

star of all the tribes.

*

Thank you for your gifts, thank you for

your Grace: thank you for the strength

you give to all of us.

You pervade all things and teach me

my own intelligence. Help me teach

the difference between reality and the

lies that have been told.

You are God of the mountains,

the shepherd of the valleys. Little

children are born knowing you.

“Trailing clouds of glory do they

come.”                                                             *

*

I ask you to bless this wine,

O Lord Jesus Christ, soul of my soul,

heart of my heart, One day I

had my communion bathed in you.

And what had been my mind

dissolved in your eternal Knowing.

I have never been the same, since

my realization of the meaning of eternal

life, through you wondrous which you gave to me

as Grace and a loving gift.

*

*

Now when you want to sell something,

you make it very special. So the rulers,

organizers of the monopoly, made you (the

anointed One) so very special,

so miraculous and exceptional, that

no man could be like you.

*

Your divinity was apparent to us through

the sayings of the Source Gospel, The Gospel

of Thomas, which had not been utterly destroyed.

*

But the teachings of the Empire Church led us

astray into loss and greed and darkness.

All we could do is worship you from

afar… for being so utterly above us.

*

But this

was not your purpose, Jesus Christ,

your purpose was to dissolve into the seeker and

have the seeker dissolve into you, until

there were not two identities ,

but one only.

*

This is the meaning of communion,

it is the meaning of the Eucharist,

as well.

*

“FOR GOD IS A DYER. AS THE GOOD

DYES, WHICH ARE CALLED TRUE, DISSOLVE

WITH THE THINGS DYED IN THEM, SO IS

IT WITH THOSE WHO GOD HAS DYED.

SINCE HIS DYES ARE IMMORTAL,THEY BECOME

IMMORTAL, BY MEANS OF HIS COLOURS.”

The Gospel of Truth.

*

“On earth, in darkness and ignorance,

you see things but you

do not become like them. You see the sun,

you do not become the sun.”  The Gospel of Truth

*

But in this place, the place of realization,

this place of redemption, in the heavenly place,

“it is not possible

to see anything of the things that actually

exist, without being like them. “You saw the

spirit, you became the spirit; you saw Christ,

you became Christ. You saw the father,

you shall become the father. In this place,

you see everything and do not see yourself.”

*

“But in that place you do see yourself – and

what you see you shall become.”

For example, in that place (oblivion)

you see something or someone

you desire, you become that desire”.

*

 

 

This is the gospel of the one who

is searched for, while the seeker,

once enlightened, can no longer

be found.

*

“The one who is searched for

was revealed to those who are

made complete, perfect through

the mercies of the Father, the

hidden mystery, Jesus the Christ

enlightened those who were in darkness,

the darkness and the fog of oblivion.

He gave light to their darkness;

he cured their blindness: he enlightened

them; he showed them a way, and the

way is the truth which he taught them”

*

He led them to eat the fruit of the tree which is Christ ,

the tree of the lineage of the Lord.

*

“AND HE DISCSCOVERED THEM IN HIMSELF,

AND THEY DISCOVERED HIM IN THEMSELVES.”

*

This is why the Bridal Chamber contains a

mirror. For the seeker reflects the one

who is sought, and the one who is sought

reflects the seeker. And a merciful God

is the reflection of the man.

*

There the man is baptized with water. light

and fire, in order that the Chrism may take

place. For no impure woman or man may enter

the Bridal Chamber, where the marriage

takes place between the Lord God and the man

who has pursued the truth until he has

disappeared into the sanctuary, made chaste

by the Son.

*

There is no describing these things, but a

roadmap can be made – with signposts

along the way, so that the seeker may

not be lost completely.

*

I was lost in the early days. When

realization occured I had no idea what

had happened.  I realized I knew all there

was to know, like a great void had opened

inside me.  I had no idea which way to

turn.

*

I had to go to a zen temple, where

the monks knew of such things. In fact

realization (satori) was the aim of  their

zazen.

*

I do not want our children to be lost in

this holy quest. I want them to see

signposts along the way – a finger

pointing at the moon.
