Ever since I started my decoding of the bible newsletter sections, I have received numerous messages from people who have experienced a religious, often strict religious upbringing saying how much it has helped them with the true meaning of the words of the person known as "Jesus", real name Yeshua being of the Jewish culture.
Many of you have sent me a message asking whether I have ceased my newsletter sections on decoding the Bible, as it has been so many weeks since the last one.
The answer is no. I full intend to continue my work on decoding the Bible and the meaning of religion generally until my work is done.
The Bible truly is an enigma in that the texts therein, which are by no means complete, having been strictly selected from all those available to be most readily modified to conform to religious and theological doctrines, were designed to help people prepare for the transition of the ages that we are now experiencing.
Due to the profound, powerful and transformative messages contained, particularly within the parables, they were phrased in such a way as to be only understood by those ready to understand at their particular stage of Spiritual evolution. Exposing people to these messages who were not prepared could have the opposite effect, setting these people back on the path instead of allowing them to progress.
As Jesus himself stated:
"And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive, For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them". But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower". -- Matthew 13:10-18
Alas, the texts that were to become the canon of the Bible was seized by those who "seeing see not; and "hearing they hear not", "neither did they understand". And accordingly "in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias" that "their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed". And millions of people if not billions are still afflicted today.
So it would seem that although the prophecy of Isaiah has indeed been fulfilled. Incidentally, "Esaias" is the Greek spelling of "Isaiah" just as Jesus is the Greek version of Yeshua - both rightfully names of the Jewish culture.
So let us now then take a closer look at the Parable of the Sower that Yeshua taught his followers:
"When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty". -- Matthew 13:19-24
So what then is the Master saying here?
Yeshua is literally teaching the power of the Subconscious Mind.
The translation of "sower" originated from the translation from the original Ancient Greek which often became either mistranslated or all too often creatively mistranslated in order to justify a theological doctrine as opposed to the intended one by Yeshua.
The original words in Ancient Greek were "Speiro" and "Autos" which actually translate to "scatter or sow" and "of self" respectively.
So now we begin to see a glimpse of the true meaning from the outset.
This parable refers to the "sowing" of the "seeds of thought" into "self" or more specifically the Subconscious Mind". So here Jesus begins to teach the truth of how sowing the seeds of a desire in our Subconscious Mind will begin to germinate and finally appear into our experiential reality.
What then specifically are the "seeds" that we are "sowing" in this context?
The "seeds" are actually Thought Forms being sown in the fertile fields of the Subconscious Mind.
In this parable Jesus goes on to say that some seeds fall in "stony places" and others fall among the "thorns".
Here Yeshua is saying that unless we focus our "seeds" our Thought Forms on to fertile ground, instead of allowing them to be unfocused and fall by the wayside, they will either fail to germinate, as in the seeds falling in "stony places" or will germinate unwanted results as with the seeds falling among the "thorns". So we must be very careful about how and where we sow our seeds, our Thought Forms", keeping in Mind every thought is a cause which must have a corresponding effect in accordance with Universal Principle. "Bad" or negative thoughts must, by Principle, result in corresponding "bad" effects" just as "good" or positive Thought forms must result in thier corresponding "good" effect.
The good news is that positive Thought Forms are of a much higher vibration than negative Thought Forms - the reason why The Law of Attraction is so powerful to those applying it appropriately. This does not mean that if you constantly dwell on a negative thought it will not manifest, because it will and does, because often people put more negative emotion behind perceived negative situations.
There are also other mistranslations present that we must interpret correctly.
The original word used in Ancient Greek was "akouo". This word actually means to "understand" rather than to "hear" which implies the ears rather than the Mind.
Another word used in the Ancient Greek was "basileia" which although interpreted as "kingdom" for theological purposes, would more appropriately be translated as "realm" or "dimension" relative to a state of Being".
So we can see quite easily how the original Metaphysical meaning of this parable, as with all the other parables and the Bible generally can and has been converted to a theological meaning for the purposes of orthodox religion, rather than the Metaphysical and Spiritual Growth initiatory meanings as taught by Yeshua.
A further mistranslation frequently appearing in the Bible is that from the original Ancient Greek word "Logos" which although theologically interpreted as "word" actually means "Thought".
The "Logos" is such an important word with such profound meaning that I will dedicate a future newsletter to this important subject.
If we now reconstitute the original writings in Ancient Greek in to their original and true meaning in the context of this parable, we see that it literally means "by understanding how Thought Forms become manifest into experiential physical reality through dimensions of power - in other words the causal spheres of the Universe, or Akasha in mystical Eastern terminology.
A summary of this entire, profound yet misunderstood parable therefore is that in understanding how Thought Forms or "seeds"
germinate in the fertile ground of our Subconscious Mind, which in turn germinate and first come to fruition in the causal realms of the Akasha, we can make use of this knowledge to only sow those seeds with confidence and expectation on the most fertile ground of the Subconscious Mind.
