MYTHOLOGY AS LITERATURE OF THE SPIRIT
Joseph Campbell describes myth as a literature of the spirit.
BUT OUR CULTURE READS IT LITERALLY
SNAKES TALK, DONKEYS TALK
WALKING ON WATER
VIRGINS GIVE BIRTH
ETC ETC ETC
WE MISSED THE MEANINGS
We read and understand literally, and no longer do we realize,
Plato, Confucius, Buddha, and Jesus, who speak of the eternal
values that have to do with the centering of our minds.
Webster defines myth thusly:
Legendary narrative explaining a belief, imaginary person or thing.
AS LITERATURE OF THE SPIRIT
WRITINGS THAT EXPLAIN
THE GOD POWER WITHIN YOU
Writings that explain inner spirit with words.
Image words must be used, because there are
no text words to explain nothingness.
THIS SCRIPTURE SPEAKS OF
NOT TALKING TO THE BRAIN
BUT TALKING TO THE PHOTON
WHICH OPERATES THE BRAIN
1 Cor 2:6 We speak wisdom among them that are perfect.
Not the wisdom of this world. The wisdom of God
in a mystery even the hidden wisdom.
TO THEM THAT ARE PERFECT MEANS
TO THEM THAT IN MEDIATION CLOSE DOWN ALL THOUGHTS
WITH NO STAIN OF THOUGHT THE MIND BECOMES PERFECT
BY HIS SPIRIT MEANS
1Cor2:13 not in the words mans wisdom teaches but which
the Holy Ghost teaches comparing spiritual things with spiritual
THE THINGS THAT COME ARE NOT THOSE
YOU WERE TAUGHT
THEY ARE YOURS AND THEY BELONG TO NO ONE ELSE
1Cor2:14 The natural man (mainline religion) receives not
the things of the spirit of God.
They are foolishness. neither can he know them.
Because they are spiritually discerned.
I INSERTED THE WORDS MANILINE RELIGION
THE NATURAL MAN IS ONE WHO IS TIED INTO TRADITION
THAT PERSON WORKS OUT OF THE LEFT SIDE
SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED MEANS THAT ONE
MUST SEPARATE FROM THOUGHT AND CLOSE DOWN
THE LEFT SIDE AND REACTIVATE THE RIGHT
AS LITERATURE OF THE SPIRIT
In the Bible the Apostle Paul then instructs us
how to approach it.
THE BIBLE EXPLAINS
Hebrews 6:1 Let us go on to perfection
GO WITHIN YOURSELF AND SHUT DOWN THE THOUGHTS
OF THE LEFT SIDE
Jesus said in Matthew 6:33 Seek first the kingdom of God
LOOK FOR THAT SPECIAL POWER
Luke 17:21 The Kingdom of God is within you
THERE IS YOUR ANSWER
DO NOT TAKE BIBLICAL MYTHOLOGY LITERALLY
THIS SCRIPTURE CLEARLY STATES THAT THE OLD TESTAMENT
IS ALLEGORY. IT IS SYMBOLIC. IT IS MYTH
WE HAVE TO CENTER OURSELVES
So as Joseph Campbell says, and as the Bible says,
you have to center yourself, you have to understand these
stories in the realm of quantum. Photon, sub atomic
WHERE IS YOUR CENTER?
Joseph Campbell says, When you get older and your life is
running away, you turn to your inner life.
But if you
donít know where it is or what it is youíll be sorry.
When the west dropped its understanding of myth, the stories
and their relevance to life were lost.
When that happens you lose all connection that these stories
have to your own life.
THE MYTH OF GENESIS
Just think about splitting the Atom actually being the
taking of the rib from Adam.
THE RIB WAS MYTHOLOGY FOR AN ELECTRON
THAT CREATES LIFE
Suddenly when you understand mythology, you immediately
understand that an advanced civilization has
communicated these truths to you.
SOMEBODY THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO
WROTE ABOUT IONIC BONDING
AND THE QUANTUM CREATION OF LIFE
AND WE FOCUSED ON A WOMAN BEING MADE OF
VERY FEW PEOPLE EVER UNDERSTAND
THESE ANCIENT WRITINGS
These ancient stories that we look at literally, actually deal
with deep inner problems, inner mysteries, inner thresholds
of passage from one realm of consciousness to another.
If you donít know the guide signs along the way.
How will you find the path.?
BILLIONS OF PEOPLE BELONG TO RELIGION
BUT JESUS SAYS ONLY A FEW FIND THE WAY
Matthew 7:14Narrow is the way which leads to life
and few find it.
You have to be able to read the signposts.
Joseph Campbell shows that the purpose of this spiritual path,
is not so we can live in a monastery, or be like religion and set
ourselves aside, but to be able to function among life
with all its imperfections.
1 Cor. 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels
and have not charity, I am as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal.
YOU CAN TALK IN TONGUES AND LIVE IN CHURCH
BUT IF YOU'RE NOT NICE TO OTHERS
IT ALL MEANS NOTHING
Thus the words of photon mould you by renewal, to be
understanding of where the perfection may be touched.
So as to be used among our imperfections.
A RETURN TO NATURE
THE IMPERFECT JESUS
Joseph Campbell: children are loveable for they are always falling down.
Little dogs are funny because they are so imperfect.
They are more human then we who try to be perfect.
People have trouble loving God because they cannot find any imperfection.
But along comes Jesus and he cries and sweats and
sheds blood and is betrayed .
So he can be loved.
He cant get his point across.
He cant get people to believe him.
So you can love him because he's just like you.
TOUCHING THE MYSTERIOUS
So myths , Parables, Symbolic stories are stories of our
search through the ages for truth.
We need for life to talk to us.
We need to touch the eternal.
We need to understand the mysterious to find out
who and what we are.
WE NEED TO ABSORB PHOTON
Mark 4:11 Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the
kingdom of God. But to them that are without it is not given.
Luke 17:21 The kingdom of God is within you.
THERE IS THE BIBLE TELLING YOU
WHAT JOSEPH CAMPBELL TRIED TO TELL YOU.
YOU MUST CONNECT TO THE PHOTON ON THE RIGHT SIDE
So in essence you who disciple yourselves to obey Jesus seek within.
You are then given the key to understanding yourself.
But to them that are without it is all parable and what is the key.
JESUS TELLS US WE HAVE THROWN AWAY THE KEY
Luke 11:52 You take away the key of knowledge by
not entering in yourself.
EXPERIENCE BEING ALIVE
People say that we are all seeking a meaning for life.
I don't think that's what we are really seeking.
I think that what we are seeking is an experience of being alive.
ISN'T THAT GREAT
INSTEAD OF SEEKING A MEANING FOR LIFE
SEEK AN EXPERIENCE OF BEING ALIVE
So that our physical experience resonates within our innermost being.
That's what these clues help us find.
HE IS SAYING THAT WE HAVE TO BEGIN TO FLOW IN
HARMONY WITH THE PHOTON WHICH ENTERS US
Myths are clues to the spiritual potentialities of human life.
What we are capable of knowing and experiencing within.
John 14:20 At that day you shall know that I am in my father
you in me and I in you
IF THIS SCRIPTURE IS TRUE, AND JESUS REALLY IS WITHIN YOU
THE ONLY WAY POSSIBLE WOULD BE AS PHOTON LIGHT.
ELECTRICAL ENERGY TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR ELECTRICAL BODY
YOU CAN EXPERIENCE THAT ELECTRICITY WHICH IS JESUS
THE RAPTURE IS BEING ALIVE
We are so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes
of outer value, that we forget the inner value.
The rapture that is associated with being alive.
RAPTURE DOESN'T MEAN FLYING UP IN THE SKY LIKE A ROCKET
IT MEANS RISING WITHIN YOURSELF TO TOUCH
THE SUPREME PHOTON
AND FOR THE FIRST TIME
WHEN THAT HAPPENS, YOU ARE ALIVE
THE MESSAGE OF THE SYMBOLS
THE INNER MARRIAGE
Myths teach you that you can turn inward, and as you do,
you begin to get the message of symbols.
JOSEPH CAMPBELL TELLS YOU THAT WHEN YOU
ENTER INTO MEDITATION YOU WILL BEGIN TO
UNDERSTAND THE SYMBOLS
Marriage fails so often for the same reason religion fails.
We look on the outside.
But if we look within and identify a spiritual identity, then we
reconstruct the image of the incarnate God, and that is what marriage is.
THE INNER MARRIAGE
MARRIAGE AS A JOINING TO PHOTON
2 Cor11: 2 I am jealous over you with Godly jealousy.
I have espoused you to one husband that I may present
you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
THIS IS WHAT JOSEPH CAMPBELL IS SAYING.
YOUR MARRIAGE IS THE COMING TOGETHER
YOUR PHOTON AND THE HIGHER PHOTON
The inner marriage.
Once the inner marriage takes place, the outer marriage
becomes a spiritual experience.
MAN SHOULD NOT SERVE SOCIETY
Joseph Campbell describes the lack of individual freedom
in a way that defines not only state control but also control
that is exercised over people by religion.
Man should not be in the service of society.
Society should be in the service of man.
When man is in the service of society you have a monster state.
That is what is threatening the world.
Thatís where religion misses the mission of Jesus.
It is not your place to serve Jesus.
IT IS JESUS PLACE TO SERVE YOU
Matthew 20:28 Even as the son of man came not to be ministered
to but to minister, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
It is Christ that is in service to you.
Religion should serve you but they have it the other way around.
Joseph Campbell: People don't know how to behave in a civilized
society because the people teaching have no idea where the true
direction comes from.
Since we no longer understand myth, and symbols of the universe,
young people make up their own.
We call it graffiti
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT. WE HAVE MADE UP OUR OWN
CONCEPTS AND HAVE TOTALLY MISSED
THOSE THAT WERE SENT DOWN VIA PHOTON FOR US TO RECEIVE
They set up their own rules.
They set up their own societies and violence occurs because
their society conflicts with the older one.
No one relates to the center. No one knows the laws of the center.
They make up their own laws and then become enemies of one another.
HOW GREAT IS THIS?
WE ARE NOT CENTERED WITHIN THE MIND
SO WE MAKE UP RELIGIONS AND FIGHT AND KILL EACH OTHER
IN THE CENTER THERE IS NO RELIGION
THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE
ALL IS ONE
BUT WE DON'T GO THERE
Jeremiah 6:10 comments about this when it says.
Their ear is uncircumcised.
THAT MEANS WE HAVE NOT CUT AWAY THE THOUGHTS AND
CONNECTIONS TO THE LEFT SIDE
In other words they have not cut themselves away from the outer.
They listen to others for direction instead of taking
direction from the center.
WHERE DOES ALL THE
WRONG DIRECTION COME FROM?
The Bible is very clear
The priests said not, where is the Lord.
They that handle the law knew me not.
The pastors transgressed against me.
The prophets prophesied by Baal.
THE PASTORS, THE PRIESTS, THE PROPHETS
DID NOT KNOW
AND DO NOT KNOW
Jeremiah 5:13 The prophets shall become wind.
The word is not in them.
THE WORD IS NOT IN THEM
YET OUR CULTURES HANG ON EVERY WORD
Jeremiah 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard.
The have trodden my pleasant part under foot.
They have made it desolate.
No man lays it to heart.
WHERE IS THE VINEYARD?
ACCORDING TO GENESIS IT IS EASTWARD
WHICH IS THE RIGHT SIDE.
BUT PASTORS HAVE MADE THAT PLACE WITHIN US DESOLATE
NO ONE GOES THERE IN MEDITATION BECAUSE THEY HAVE
BEEN FRIGHTENED BY THE PASTORS
Does that mean today's pastors?
Do they send people into meditation ?
Or do they warn that its occult.
Stay away leave it desolate.
THE VINEYARD-THE GARDEN-THE RIGHT SIDE
Why do I propose that the vineyard of God spoken of
in the Bible is the right hemisphere of the brain?
The vineyard your right hand has planted.
The garden, paradise. Eden where was it planted.
Genesis 2:8 God planted a garden eastward in Eden.
When you look North
East is on the right side
The right side is unknown to pastors.
It is desolate because they do not know the symbols.
Instead they know their groups rules.
DIRECTION COMES FROM THE CENTER
Joseph Campbell says, The failure in our society is there is
no understanding of the basic guiding principals that
can come only from the center.
We thus make laws that are coming totally from the minds of others.
We make church rules that come totally from the carnal mind.
ALL OF OUR SPIRITUAL LAWS COME FROM OTHER PEOPLE
TO SUIT THEIR BELIEFS.
THE CARNAL MIND IS THE LEFT SIDE THAT DOES NOT SHUT DOWN
EXCEPT IN MEDITATION
Romans 8:7 Gods enemy is identified as the carnal mind.
It is not subject to the law of God,
it is not capable of obeying the law of God.
AGAIN: IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD
AND IT IS NOT CAPABLE OF OBEYING THE LAW OF GOD.
WHICH MEANS YOU HAVE TO SHUT IT DOWN IN MEDITATION
OR YOU ARE A LAW BREAKER
SIN MEANS, NOT FLOWING
IN NATURAL HARMONY
Joseph Campbell: When you learn the harmony of the universal law.
The universal wisdom, then you begin to understand that sin is
simply getting out of touch with that harmony.
IF YOU'RE NOT SHUTTING DOWN THE LEFT SIDE
OF THE MIND IN MEDITATION
THEN YOU ARE IN SIN
YOU ARE OUT OF HARMONY
It doesn't mean drinking, gambling, smoking, or sex.
It means getting out of touch with the harmony of the universe.
Thatís why the Bible says of Jesus.
We have not a high priest which cannot be touched with
the feeling of our infirmities.
The word infirmities means feebleness.
The feeling of being beat up and unable to do anything about it.
But was in all points
(All points= Sex, Temper, Money etc,) tempted as we are
yet without sin.
HOW COULD HE BE TEMPTED IN ALL WAYS LIKE US AND
BE WITHOUT SIN?
BECAUSE HE KEPT HIS INNER HARMONY WITH
THE SUPREME LIGHT
In other words he never got out of touch with the inner harmony
so he was able to overcome and survive.
MYTHS OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN
Joseph Campbell says that he started to be interested in
myth as he became acquainted with the stories of the
There in those stories he read of Creation, Death, resurrection,
Ascension to Heaven, Virgin Births.
It was all there.
Everything that he had once thought could only be found in Christianity,
he found in the stories of the American Indians.
WHAT JOSEPH CAMPBELL THOUGHT WAS CHRISTIANITY
WAS FOUND IN THE STORIES OF THE INDIANS
JOSEPH CAMPBELL INDIAN MYTHS AND BIBLE MYTHS ARE THE SAME
Read Joseph Campbellís statement after he compared the
other Stories with the Bible Stories.
Later I became interested in Hinduism, and there were the
same stories again.
And in my graduate work I dealt with King Arthur, and medieval material
and there were the same stories again.
So you canít tell me their not the same stories.
Iíve been with them all my life.
They came from every culture but with timeless themes
THERE IT IS
JOSEPH CAMPBELL EXPLORED EVERY CULTURE
AND THE STORIES ARE ALL THE SAME TIMELESS THEMES
We call others pagans and say their going to hell simply
because we donít understand the central truth.
Their story is the same, only the players have different names.
The Bible Says This.
Col 1:23 Be not moved away from the hope of the Gospel
which you have heard and which was preached to every
creature which is under heaven.
And Jesus Says This
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold:
them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice;
and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
NOTE ABOVE. THE STORIES THAT CAME TO ALL,
CAME FROM THE SAME SOURCE
BUT THE SAME THEME
TRUTH IS WORLD WIDE AND FROM THE CENTER
The Gospel is universal.
It is from the center.
ALL THE STORIES ARE THE SAME
Joseph Campbell: If you were not alert to the parallel themes
you might think they were different stories, but they are not.
YOU THINK THEY'RE DIFFERENT STORIES BECAUSE THEY ARE TOLD
IN DIFFERENT CULTURAL WAYS
BUT THEY ARE THE SAME
MYTHOLOGY AND THE JUDGE
Joseph Campbell explains myth and spirit as a judge
walking into a courtroom.
Everyone stands up. Youíre not standing up for the man.
What youíre standing up for is the mythological character
of justice, truth and fairness.
FORGET THE MAN. THE RESPECT IS FOR JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS.
THE JUDGE IS JUST A SYMBOL OF THAT
THE OLD TIME RELIGION
When primitive societies are settled by modern civilizations
they go to pieces.
They disintegrate they become diseased.
Today conservative religions are calling for a return to the old time religion.
And they are making a terrible mistake.
Theyíre going back to something that does not solve the mystery of life.
NOW LOOK WHERE JOSEPH CAMPBELL SAYS
RELIGION THROWS YOU OUT OF SYNC WITH NATURE
By going back you throw yourself out of sync.
Our kids lose faith in the religions that were taught them.
So they go inside often with the help of drugs.
Luke 9:62 No man having put his hand to the plow and
looking back is fit for the kingdom of God.
Donít look back.
Don't go back to that which misled you
NOTICE ABOVE WHAT JOSEPH CAMPBELL SAYS
ABOVE ABOUT DRUGS
BECAUSE WE WERE NOT TAUGHT TO FIND THE INNER WAY
GIVEN TO US BY JESUS
SO MANY TRY TO FIND IT WITH DRUGS
MAY BE UNPLEASANT
Joseph Campbell speaks of a spiritual awakening that
can actually be a bad trip.
This is because people get into it to activate the mystical part
of the mind ,but do not bother with the teachings.
So they have no idea what to expect and when it happens,
the spiritual transformation with no preparation, may not be pleasant.
If you know where your going you wont have a bad trip.
YOU HAVE TO SPEND TIME IN MEDITATION TO ALLOW
THE PHOTON ACTIVITY TO MAKE THE NECESSARY CHANGES.
YOU SHOULD NOT TRY TO CHANGE ANYTHING OR
I can testify to the truth of that.
Some people in early stages of meditation see visions
of demons and wolves faces etc.
Not knowing the visions are those things that have hurt them
Matthew 8 28-32 describes this.
Christ comes into the graveyard of the mind,
flushes out the bad thoughts from the deep subconscious and
runs them away.
Once brought into the light they can no longer hurt you.
WHAT WE DON'T UNDERSTAND BECOMES EVIL
Joseph Campbell says its like drowning in the water because
you never learned how to swim.
The water becomes evil because you donít know how to function in it.
YOU'RE DROWNING, BECAUSE NO ONE EVER TAUGHT YOU HOW TO SWIM
AND SO THE WATER BECOMES SOMETHING TO BE AFRAID OF
Isnít that an interesting perspective on evil?
A power that we do not understand how to use.
So it is now the power that is evil but our lack of knowledge
that makes the power evil.
IT IS US THAT MAKE THE INNER POWER EVIL
EVEN THOUGH IT WAS JESUS WHO SAID
HE WOULD BE WITHIN YOU
HOW CAN RELIGION TEACH THAT GOING WITHIN IN MEDITATION
IS EVIL , WHEN JESUS IS IN THERE?
CONSCIOUSNESS IS EVERYTHING
Joseph Campbell raises an interesting thing about consciousness.
We only think of consciousness as part of the head or the brain.
Consciousness is everything.
Energy is consciousness.
The vegetable world is consciousness.
As you go through the woods you can see all the various plants
and flowers doing what they do.
The digestive process in your body knows what to digest
and what to throw up.
Itís making a decision. Itís consciousness without a head.
DID YOU EVER THINK OF THAT
YOU'RE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM MAKES A DECISION ON WHAT TO DIGEST
AND WHAT TO THROW UP
So consciousness is part of the physical realm.
To transform it to the spiritual realm requires meditation.
We have given up on that process, so there is no one to
pass it along to in the next generation.
Hence the transformation of the mind from the physical to
the spiritual has stopped.
Romans 12:2 be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
But as Joseph Campbell has shown us, no one knows how.
JOSEPH CAMPBELL AND BILL MOYERS
In a conversation between Bill Moyers and Joseph Campbell,
Moyer's made a very interesting observation.
His son had gone to see Star Wars 12 times.
When Moyer's asked him why he went so often his son said,
for the same reason you read the Bible so often.
AND STAR WARS
Joseph Campbell then describes the myth of Star Wars and
its relevance to our society.
Is the machine (the system) going to crush humanity, or serve humanity?
Humanity comes not from the machine (system).
It comes from the heart.
When Luke Skywalker unmasks his father he is taking off the
machine role his father played.
It was the uniform of the system.
So many of us follow the uniform, the authority, the religion.
They are supposed to save us but in reality they kill us.
TAKING OFF DARTH VADER'S MASK, IS CUTTING AWAY THE
SYSTEM THAT HAS DONE SO MUCH DAMAGE TO THE WORLD.
IT IS CUTTING OFF THE THOUGHTS OF THE CARNAL MIND
I LOVE WHERE JOSEPH CAMPBELL SAYS, THEY ARE SUPPOSED
TO SAVE US BY IN REALITY THEY KILL US
Jeremiah 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely and the priests
bear rule by their means and my people love to have it so
and what will you do in the end.
WHAT WE ARE TAUGHT IS NOT TRUE, BUT PEOPLE
LOVE TO HEAR IT.
THEY FLOCK TO CHURCHES TO HEAR IT
BUT WHAT WILL YOU DO IN THE END?
So where does it all come from?
THE DEVELOPMENT OF RELIGION
Joseph Campbell outlines the development of religion.
In the beginning God was simply the most powerful God among many.
He was a local tribal god.
When the Jews were in Babylon they developed the notion of the savior
and a whole new dimension came.
THE EARLIEST BELIEFS WERE CHANGED BY PEOPLE
AND WE BECAME CAUGHT UP IN IT
The whole world then was a few hundred miles around the near east center.
No one knew of the Chinese and their ways or the Aztecs and theirs.
Yet they were practicing the same movement under different names.
EVERYBODY WAS DOING THE SAME THING AS FAR AS
GOD WAS CONCERNED.
BUT THEY HAD NO IDEA THAT EACH OTHERS
CULTURES EVEN EXISTED
Joseph Campbell talks of Beirut Lebanon
There Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, have different names
for the same God.
Each group says we are the chosen and hates the other and will
shoot the other, yet itís the same God.
Itís the same with the Catholics and Protestants in Ireland.
The same Jesus.
The Jesus who says love your enemies.
They hate and kill each other.
So what is the purpose since they pay no attention to the one
they are fighting to defend.
GOD AND NATURE
Yahweh became a temple God.
A Book God, a rules and regulations God.
Thus the Book Cult won out over the nature cult that
was worshipping on mountain tops.
PACAL VOTAN IN HIS PREDICTION OF DECEMBER 21 2012
SAID THAT THE REASON WOULD BE BECAUSE WE WOULD
LOSE OUR HARMONY WITH NATURE.
IT WOULD SEEM THAT RELIGION WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF THAT
Now the wheel turns and the God of Nature is resurrecting above
the God of the Book and the church ,
and doesn't the Bible say this.
Mark 14:58 I will destroy this temple that is made with hands
(There goes the God of the Church)
and in 3 days I will build another made without hands.
So now we are seeing the great change as the God of
all things (Nature) restores itself.
THE BOY AND THE BIRD
Joseph Campbell tells a beautiful story of a little boy who
was able to catch a bird from the forest.
The bird had a beautiful song.
He asked his father to bring food for the bird.
The father didnít want to feed a mere bird.
So he killed the bird.
But when he killed the bird he killed the song,
and when he killed the song,
he killed himself and dropped dead.
In destroying nature as we have done we kill the song
and in killing the song we kill ourselves.
GLOBAL WARMING, FACTORY FARMING, CRUELTY TO ANIMALS
WE HAVE KILLED THE SONG
AND WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES
THE BIRD HAS DELIVERED THE SERMON
Once a Zen master was about to deliver a sermon to his students.
And just as he was to speak a bird sang.
He said, ď the sermon has been delivered and he leftĒ.
If we kill out nature from God what is there to relate to.
All we have is a book that people have tampered with.
Genesis 1:14 says let there be lights in the heavens and
let them be for signs.
RELIGION HAS TAUGHT US TO BE AFRAID
OF THE CELESTIAL SIGNS
Paul says about knowing God in Romans 1:20.
The invisible things of him from the creation of the world
are clearly seen, being understood by the things made (nature),
even his eternal power and Godhead.
But we have killed the song of the bird.
Joseph Campbell says, in Buddhism we come close to truth.
Seeing all things as Buddha being, we only have to come to recognition.
There is nothing to do.
Just to know and to be.
AS JESUS SAID
The Kingdom of God is within you.
The things I do, you can do, and better then me.
There is nothing to do.
Enter in and allow it to be.
Be one with all as he said.
Blank out your mind.
Take no thought.
Then you are one with all.
Joseph Campbell raises the question of brotherhood.
A Question that is addressed in the Bible in much the
same way that the systems address it.
Love and good things for those who are part of our group.
No concern for those who are not.
BY MISUNDERSTANDING MYTHOLOGY AS LITERAL HISTORY
WE HAVE CREATED A HELL ON EARTH
Deuteronomy 5:17 says You shall not kill
Deuteronomy 7:1 & 2 Talks about the enemies of Israel,
Hittites and Hivites etc.
Deuteronomy 7:2 says
And when the LORD your God shall deliver them
before you; you shall hurt them, and utterly destroy them; you
shall make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them
Matthew18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord,
how often shall
till seven times?
Matthew18:22 Jesus said to him, Not seven times,
seventy times seven times.
That's the Christ mind.
But you will find that our social and religious institutions
apply the Old Testament style.
It depends on what group you belong to.
FORGIVE 7 X 70 TIMES
HAVE YOU HEARD CHRISTIANS FORGIVING MUSLIMS
FOR WHAT SOME OF THEM DID ON 911
In the Old Testament the word gentile is used.
Gentile means an outsider and the rules of mercy
do not apply to outsiders.
GOD MYTHS AND EVIL NATURE
Joseph Campbell , describes myths as stories about Gods.
The Gods however are functions and powers in your
own body and mind and in nature.
There are also myths that deal with social order.
THE GODS INSIDE RULE YOUR MIND
EITHER HEAVEN OR HELL
The Biblical myths according to Campbell deal with the
social order in which nature is condemned.
Religion has no place for nature in the west.
Nature in western religion is thought of as evil.
JOSEPH CAMPBELL SAYS IN WESTERN
RELIGION NATURE IS THOUGHT OF AS EVIL
PACAL VOTAN SAID,
THAT IS WHY WE HAD TO GO
THROUGH DECEMBER 21 2012
AND WHY IT IS STAYING WITH US NOW
WE CAN'T CONTROL NATURE
AND SO WE ABUSE IT
This is the reason we are not in accord with nature.
We donít get close to it, because we cant control it,
cant dominate it, and if it cannot be controlled,
or dominated by our religion,
then it is considered an outsider an evil.
The cutting down of forests, the mistreatment of animals.
The elimination of native customs from nature oriented people.
We are separated from nature.
We have brotherhood only with that which our groups
tells us to associate with.
Dominion over the beasts is taken literally.
We donít understand the beast not to be of the field but to
be of our own lower nature.
THE BEAST WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE DOMINION OVER IS
NOT IN THE FIELD, IT IS IN OUR HEAD
In Japan the Shinto law is that the process of nature cannot be evil.
Every natural impulse is not to be corrected but to be beautified.
The Bible that we read says that the earth is cursed.
Genesis3:17 And to Adam he said, Because you have listened
to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, of which I
commanded you, saying, you shall not eat of it: cursed is the
ground for your sake; in sorrow shall you eat of it all the days of
THE RELIGIONS WE FOLLOW HAVE TAUGHT THIS TO US LITERALLY.
IT IS NOT SPEAKING OF GRASS AND MUD.
IT IS REFERRING TO THE EARTH AS THE CARNAL MIND.
LISTENING TO THE VOICE OF YOUR WIFE
AS IT SAYS ABOVE IS MYTHICAL
IT DOESN'T MEAN A PHYSICAL WIFE
IT MEANS LISTENING AND FOLLOWING YOUR EMOTIONS.
WE MUST IDENTIFY WITH THE PLANET,
NOT THE GROUP
Joseph Campbell says we must turn away from tribal beliefs
that say this is ours, and those who are with us.
We must identify not with a group but with the planet,
with the universe, truly with all of Godís creation.
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT PACAL VOTAN WHO
PREDICTED DECEMBER 21 2012,
SAID IN 600AD
AND THE ONE DOLLAR BILL
Joseph Campbell remarks about the truth of the seal on a one-dollar bill.
At the bottom we are all separated at the four sides of the compass.
But when you rise to the top everyone is together and the eye of God opens.
The beauty is to realize all people are capable of touching the eye of God.
You donít need a church or a special authority.
ABOVE JOSEPH CAMPBELL COMMENTS ON THE MEANING
OF THE EYE AT THE TOP OF THE PYRAMID
HE COMPARES IT WITH RISING WITHIN OURSELVES TO TOUCH
THE SINGLE EYE OR PINEAL
The Hindu rejects the literal Garden of Eden story.
And once we do, we are no longer cut off from the
source which we call God.
The single eye opens to the radiance which is Gods
natural love for all.
JOSEPH CAMPBELL LOOKS FURTHER
AT THE ONE DOLLAR BILL
When you count the number of ranges on
the pyramid there are 13.
The number 13 is transformation of the four-fold nature.
1 God and 3 New Life equals 4 which is man.
12 disciples and 1 Christ equals 13=4=New Life in man
JOSEPH CAMPBELL OBSERVES NUMEROLOGY ON
THE DOLLAR BILL.
13 EQUALS 4 AND HE
IDENTIFIES THAT AS NEW LIFE IN MAN
On the dollar bill the words read Novus Ordo Seclorum.
A new order of the world.
Annuit Coeptis means, he has smiled on our activities.
Joseph Campbell says this is actually the Single Eye.
Wisdom and Understanding.
JOSEPH CAMPBELL FEELS THAT THE SINGLE EYE IS WHAT IS
BEING REFERRED TO ON THE DOLLAR BILL WHEN IT
SAYS HE HAS SMILED ON OUR ACTIVITIES
On the dollar bill behind the pyramid is a desert.
The old ways.
The garden is the flowering that lies ahead.
On the right side is the Eagle the Bird of Zeus.
The eagle holds war and peace. that is our mode,
13 arrows in one claw and a laurel leaf with 13
leaves in the other.
The eagle is looking towards the leaves of peace but at
the same time holding tightly to the arrows of war.
ABOVE HE SEES OUR TRUE NATURE
LOOKING TOWARDS PEACE BUT PREPARING FOR WAR
The eagle has 9 tail feathers.
Nine being the number of consciousness and understanding.
Over the eagles head are 13 stars arranged as the Star of David
That which reaches up and the divine source that reaches down.
There is a center star which is the source of universal energy.
We identify it as Aum.
So government is symbolized on the one dollar bill as very mystical.
Governing in unity with the single eye, that is oneness of all
people at the top of the Pyramid.
THAT IS WHAT THE SYMBOLS SAY ON THE DOLLAR BILL
BUT THE ACTIONS OF THE MINDS OF THE POLITICIANS,
AND GEORGE WASHINGTON
George Washingtonís last words were that we not
engage in foreign alliances.
That lasted until World War 1.
Then we scrapped the declaration of independence and
rejoined the British conquest of the planet.
That put us on one side of the pyramid.
Now we suddenly (Because of our alliances) are politically
a member of one side of the argument).
WE NO LONGER FOLLOW THE EYE
We are concerned with politics and economics.
Not with the eye of reason and brotherhood.
That was the true essence of Krishna, Buddha and Jesus.
Kill the animal powers, and be guided by the inner eye of reason,
and universal brother and sisterhood.
GREED PULLS US TO THE BOTTOM
Joseph Campbell said, What destroys reason is passion.
The passion of politics is greed.
That's what pulls you to the bottom of the pyramid.
Instead of at the top at the single eye.
PACAL VOTAN ALSO SAID IN 600AD
THAT IT WOULD BE GREED THAT WOULD DESTROY US
HE SAID THIS AS HE TALKED OF DECEMBER 21 2012
THE FOUR FUNCTIONS OF MYTHOLOGY
Joseph Campbell says that Mythology serves four functions.
1. The Mystical Function. The realization of the wonder
of the universe.
Myth opens the world to the dimension of mystery.
To realize that the mystery that underlies all forms is open to us.
THESE SCRIPTURES ECHO WHAT
JOSEPH CAMPBELL HAS SAID ABOUT UNDERSTANDING
THE MYSTERY WITHIN US.
Mark 4:11 To you it is given to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God.
But to them that are without all these things are done in parables.
Luke 17:21 The kingdom of God is within you.
Proverbs 1:6 Wisdom is knowing the dark sayings
As Joseph Campbell says, the ancient mythology is the
understanding of mystery.
1 Cor. 2:7
We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery even the hidden wisdom
which God ordained before the world etc.
HOW IMPORTANT THE HIDDEN MYSTERY IS
AND WE HAVE MISSED IT
YET WE FIGHT AND KILLED EACH OTHER
2. The second aspect of mythology is cosmological.
The dimension of science.
Do we have all the answers?
Science can tell you how it works but what is it?
You strike a match.
There's fire but what is fire?
3. The third function of mythology is sociological.
It validates social and ethical laws.
The social laws of a good society.
4. The fourth is as a teaching.
Teaching how to live a human lifetime in any circumstance.
JOSEPH CAMPBELL HAS OUTLINED WHAT WE HAVE MISSED
BY FOLLOWING RELIGION
TAKING THE OLD TESTAMENT LITERALLY
Joseph Campbell speaks of the Old Testament taken literally.
It is a time belonging to a different social and ethical order.
It belongs entirely somewhere else.
JOSEPH CAMPBELL ABOVE SAYS THAT WHAT IS WRITTEN
IN THE OLD TESTAMENT THAT WE HAVE TAKEN LITERALLY
IS A SOCIAL AND ETHICAL ORDER TOTALLY
OUT OF HARMONY WITH THIS TIME
Galatians 4:24 and 25 says its allegory.
ABOVE THE BIBLE TELLS US NOT TAKE THIS
WOMEN ARE NOT LESSER INDIVIDUALS THEN MEN
But Literally scripture treats women as 2nd class or less.
THE TEACHERS SAY THAT WOMEN MUST OBEY
BECAUSE THEIR BIBLE SAYS SO.
IN REALITY THE MYTHOLOGY SYMBOLIZES WOMEN AS EMOTIONS
AND TELLS US NOT TO ALLOW OUR EMOTIONS TO
OVERRULE OUR INTELLECT
BUT OUR RELIGIONS TAKE IT LITERALLY
AND TREAT WOMEN BADLY
Women are still treated that way because after all its Gods word.
RETURN TO NATURE
Joseph Campbell says we have to learn to get back in
accord with the wisdom of nature and realize again our
brotherhood with the animals and the earth and the sea.
OUR VIOLATIONS OF NATURE ARE WHAT HAVE
BROUGHT PACAL VOTANS PREDICTION TO US AS A REALITY.
WE ABUSE ANIMALS
BILL MOYER'S ASKS JOSEPH CAMPBELL
WHY HUMANS REJECT NATURE
Bill Moyer's asked Joseph Campbell a very serious
question that has to do with our reading the Bible literally.
Donít you think Americans have rejected the ancient idea of
nature as divine because it would keep us from having dominion over it?
How can you cut down trees and uproot the land and turn rivers
into real estate without offending God?
Good question isnít it.
The literal dominion over nature gives us Carte blanch to do
what we want with the earth, and animals, mostly for our own profit.
Joseph Campbell answers:
That is the Biblical condemnation of nature
Genesis 1:26 Dominion over fish, fowl, cattle ,
the earth and creeping things.
Galatians 4:24 tells us this is allegory.
Fish represent the lower parts of consciousness.
Ideas, feelings, emotions.
Those aspects which are immersed in the waves
of worldly affairs.
Fowls of the air: These are the higher order of
You should have control over your feelings and emotions
and the higher aspects of the mind.
Cattle: Emotions of the lower nature.
Those things that must be sacrificed.
Earth: The mind of man.
Creeping things: The base carnal desires.
THE BIBLE WAS NOT TALKING ABOUT FOUR LEGGED
IT WAS TALKING ABOUT SACRIFICING OURSELVES
BUT WE MISSED IT
PROOF THAT ANIMAL SACRIFICE
WAS FROM RELIGION
AND NOT FROM GOD
How can I prove that the Bible was indeed talking in allegory
and not directing our dominion and destruction of animals.
Psalm 40:6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire. My ears have you opened.
THIS IS A PRAYER TO GOD
SACRIFICE AND OFFERING YOU DID NOT DESIRE
Isaiah 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of sacrifices.
I delight not in the blood of bullocks etc.
HERE IS GOD SAYING, I HAVE NO JOY IN WATCHING ANIMALS DIE
WHO TOLD YOU TO DO THIS?
You desire not sacrifice or else would I give it.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit and a contrite heart.
THE ANIMAL TO BE SACRIFICED IS THE ANIMAL NATURE
THE PRIDE THE GREED
A TRUE SACRIFICE IS HUMBLENESS, A BROKEN SPIRIT
AND A CONTRITE HEART
Yet the Bible is filled with commandments to sacrifice
animals and take dominion.
For the animal in our mind is what is being referred to.
The point is to take dominion over our own selves.
WE ARE TAUGHT THAT
GOD IS SEPARATE FROM NATURE
Joseph Campbell: That misinterpretation was inherited
from religion and brought to the United States mostly from England.
We are taught that God is separated from nature.
We are taught that God condemns nature.
Which is not so.
But its in the Bible. taught in churches.
We are the masters over nature.
WE MUST THINK DIFFERENTLY
Think of yourself as coming out of the earth instead
of being thrown in here from somewhere else.
Then you see we are the earth.
We are the conscience of the earth.
The eyes of the earth.
The voice of the earth.
The protectors of the animals and the earth itself.
Joseph Campbell speaks of mother earth as a new mythology.
The only mythology that is going to be worth thinking about
in the immediate future is one that talks of the planet.
Not the city, not the people, but the planet, and everybody on it.
How to relate to the world of nature.
To the cosmos.
The earth and our mother. God our father.
EVERYTHING WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING, WE DID NOT
WE HAVE INDUSTRIALIZED EVERYTHING
AND CARED NOT WHAT IMPACT IT HAS ON NATURE.
WE HAVE TORTURED ANIMALS IN FACTORY FARMS
AND WE WILL PAY FOR THAT
REASON NOT RELIGION
We must look through the eye of reason and not religion.
When the US government offered to buy tribal lands
back in 1852.
An Indian chief named Seattle wrote to the president
of the United States.
You wish to buy our land.
How strange .
How can you buy or sell the sky.
If you donít own the sparkle of the water how can you sell or buy.
The earth is sacred.
Every pine needle.
Every humming insect.
Every mist in the dark woods.
All are holy in memory and experience of my people.
We are part of the earth.
It is part of us.
The flowers are our sisters.
The bear, the deer, the eagle are our brothers.
The body heat of the pony and man are all of the same family.
If we sell you our land, you must remember it is sacred.
The waters murmur is the voice of my fathers father.
You must give to the rivers the kindness you would give a brother.
The air is precious.
It shares its spirit with all life it supports.
So if we sell your our land, you must keep it sacred,
as a place where man can go to taste the wind that is sweetened
by the meadow flowers.
Will you teach your children what we have taught our children?
That the earth is our mother.
That what befalls the earth befalls all of us.
This we know.
The earth does not belong to us.
We belong to the earth.
All things are connected like the blood that unites us all.
Man did not weave the web of life.
He is merely a strand on it.
What he does to the world he does to himself.
One thing we know.
Our God is also your god.
The earth is precious to him and to harm the earth is to
show contempt to the creator.
Your destiny is a mystery to us.
What will happen when the buffalo are all slaughtered, when the
wild horses are tamed.
What will happen when the secret comers of the forest are heavy
with the scent of men, and the view of the beautiful hills is
blocked by the talking wires.
Where will the thicket be.
Where will the eagle be.
The end of living.
The beginning of survival.
When our memory is only the shadow of a cloud moving across
the prairie, will these shores, and forests still be here.
Will there be any of the spirit of my people still left.
We love this earth as a newborn loves its mothers heartbeat.
So if we sell you our land, love it as we have loved it.
Care for it as we have cared for it.
Hold in your mind the memory of the land, as it is when you receive it.
Preserve the land for all children and love it as God loves us all.
As we are part of the land you too are part of the land.
One thing we know.
There is only one God.
No man, be he red man, or white man can be apart.
We are brothers after all.
HAVE WE BEEN TRUE TO THE EARTH
HAVE WE NOT VIOLATED THIS SACRED TRUST
AND IS NOT THIS THE REASON FOR PROPHECY OF PACAL VOTAN?
MYTHOLOGY APPLIES TO
ALL STAGES OF LIFE
Joseph Campbell tells us that the human being who
lives today has the same maturing aspect as a
cro-magnum man who lived in caves 30,000 years ago.
From childhood, sexual maturity, transformation from
childhood to manhood, womanhood, marriage, body failure,
loss of power and death.
Mythology had to talk to both of you.
So the symbols are lasting and intelligible to both.
MYTHOLOGY MUST TALK TO
THE PERSON AT ALL STAGES OF LIFE
The serpent bound to earth is our bondage to the mundane.
The eagle in spiritual flight-free.
So we get the two together and we have a wonderful dragon with wings.
WHAT JOSEPH CAMPBELL SAYS IS THAT THOUGH
THE SERPENT IS BONDAGE TO THE EARTH, AND THE BIRD IS FREE ABOVE
MYTHOLOGY BRINGS THE TWO TOGETHER WITH A DRAGON WITH WINGS.
BREATHING FIRE OCCASIONALLY AS ALL WE DO
JOSEPH CAMPBELL: THE DRAGON WITH WINGS
The earth born lower conscious once held to the earth rises above all.
We have risen above the problem and the story can be told everywhere.
THE POWER OF THE
RIGHT HEMISPHERE OF THE BRAIN
The Bible stories of an inner place which constantly
specifies the right side, told in various stories becomes a
scientific look at the power in the right hemisphere,
open and available to all, throughout over the world.
Psalm 17:7 Show your marvelous loving kindness.
O you that saves by your right hand them which put
their trust in you from those that rise up against them.
Now the eagle factor that this is higher consciousness.
Psalm 17:8 keep me as the apple of your eye.
Hide me under the shadow of your wings.
So the same story is told over and over with different costumes.
Eagles become angels.
Both have wings and fly.
The story changes only the costumes.
The rest stays the same.
Crucified Saviors-Virgin Born Gods, resurrections.
Over and over and over.
From the ends of the world the myths in different
costumes tell the story.
Romans 10:17 So faith comes by hearing and hearing by
the word of God.
But I say have they not heard yes truly.
Their sound went into all the earth and their words
to the ends of the world.
Romans 10:20 I was found by them that did not look for me.
I appeared to them that did not ask for me.
THAT LINE ABOVE
GOD COMES TO YOU IN MEDITATION WHEN YOU ARE NOT LOOKING
GOD COMES IN MEDITATION WHEN THERE IS NO ASKING
IT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE NOT EXPECTING IT.
This is meditation. But what about the religious.
Romans 10:21 all day long I have stretched forth my hands
unto a disobedient and gainsaying (denying-disputing) people.
THE ANCIENT WORDS SPEAK OF
THE DEEP MYSTERIES OF YOU
Joseph Campbell says, these words that have gone out to the
ends of the world are speaking of the deep mystery of yourself.
Itís tremendous because it smashes all your fixed notions of things.
Its your own nature and being.
THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE MISSED
THE UNDERSTANDING OF OUR OWN NATURE AND BEING
When you start thinking about these things ,
about the inner mystery, inner life, you begin on your own to
have the images that are already present from the ancient world.
Mark 4:1 To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God.
But to them that are without all these things are parables.
Luke 17:21 The kingdom of God is within you.
IT IS GIVEN TO YOU TO UNDERSTAND
YOUR DEEP INNER SELF
What is being said is that it is given to you to understand
the mystery that is yourself and contained within you.
AT THE DARKEST MOMENT
COMES THE LIGHT
Joseph Campbell states: One thing that comes out of myths is
that out of the bottom of the abyss comes the voice of salvation.
The black moment when the real message of transformation
is going to come.
At the darkest moment comes the light.
Jesus is called the morning star.
It is the light seen just before the dawn.
2 Peter 1:19 Be attentive for a light that shines in a dark place
until the day dawn and the day star rises in your hearts.
CAN YOU READ THE DEEP MYTHOLOGY IN THAT SCRIPTURE?
IT IS INSIDE ALL OF US.
THE DAY STAR IS THE PHOTON ENERGY THAT CHANGES
ELECTRICAL FREQUENCIES IN OUR BRAIN AND WE RISE UP TO
No prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation.
YOU INTERPRET THE SCRIPTURE FOR YOURSELF
DON'T LET SOMEONE ELSE INTERPRET FOR YOU
WHAT IS MEANS TO THEM MAY NOT BE WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU
Let it be to you different then to the whole world.
It is for everybody, and it speaks of the light, that comes
at the darkest hour if you allow it.
EVERYTHING IS IN US
Joseph Campbell: All is in us and the myths prove it.
Christ is in us as he says in John 14:20 You in me and I in you.
Heaven and hell are in us.
All the Gods are within us.
This is the great realization of the Upanishads of India in
the 9th century BC.
All the Gods, all the heavens, all the worlds are within us.
WITHIN YOU IS A UNIVERSE THAT NO ONE ELSE WILL EVER KNOW
AND WITHIN THEM IS A UNIVERSE THAT YOU WILL NEVER KNOW
MYTHS ARE THE ENERGIES OF THE BODY
IN CONFLICT WITH ONE ANOTHER
They are manifestations in image form of the energies
of the body in conflict with each other.
That is what myth is, Myth is the manifestation of symbolic images
of the energies of the organs of the body in conflict with one another.
This organ wants this and this organ wants that.
WHEN YOU READ ABOUT BATTLES, AND YOU READ ABOUT
KILLINGS, AND TERRIBLE THINGS
UNDERSTAND THEM TO
BE STORIES OF THE THINGS THAT GO ON INSIDE OF YOUR
HEAD THAT NO ONE ELSE EVER KNOWS ABOUT
THAT BATTLE IS YOURS.
A POLYNESIAN SAYING
There is a Polynesian saying that we are standing on a
whale fishing for minnows.
The ground of being is the ground of our being and when we turn
outward we see all of these little problems here and there.
But if we look inward we see that we are the source of them all.
THE BUDDHA SAID THAT WHEN WE GET UPSET AND ACCUSE
OTHER PEOPLE OF STIRRING THINGS UP, WE SHOULD KNOW
THAT IT IS THE SEDIMENT IN OUR OWN CUP THAT BECOMES THE CLOUD.
IF THE SEDIMENT WAS GONE, THEY COULD STIR ALL THEY WANT
BUT THERE WOULD BE NO CLOUD
WEST AFRICA AND
THE BASSARI PEOPLE
The universal nature of myth is shown by Genesis and the
ancient stories of West Africa of the Bassari People.
There was no way they could have known of Genesis yet:
WHAT DOES GENESIS SAY
Genesis: God speaks and says have you eaten of the tree.
Man: The woman you gave me she gave me the fruit.
God to woman: What is this you have done
Woman: The serpent beguiled me.
We are still pointing at a devil to excuse our own shortcomings.
Now The Bassari Legend Of West Africa.
One day snake said.
We too should eat these fruits.
Antelope said We don't know anything about this fruit.
Then Man and his wife took some fruit and ate it.
Unumbotte came down from the sky.
Who ate the fruit.
Man and wife said, we did.
Unombotte Who said you could eat that fruit
Man and wife said, the snake did.
Both myths blame the snake.
THIS STORY WAS WRITTEN TOTALLY
INDEPENDENT OF GENESIS
The snake symbolizes immortal energy.
It sheds it skin and is renewed.
The serpent thus carries within itself both the
fascination and terror of life.
So indeed life energy is the source of all things good and evil.
The serpent/spine represents the life force that constantly moves
against Adam Physical, and Eve Mind.
Romans 8:7 The carnal mind is not subject to the law of God
neither can it be.
RELIGION BLAMES THE WOMAN
Joseph Campbell says that he knows of no other place
but in the Bible where woman is portrayed as a sinner.
He says our version of the fall is that nature is corrupt,
sex in itself is corrupt,
and the female as the epitome of sex is corrupt.
He says that the explanation of the degrading of woman in the Bible,
is that the Hebrews moved into the lands of Canaan where the
Goddess was associated with the serpent.
The male God group rejected this.
Joseph Campbell says, Woman takes the blame in the Bible
because she represents life.
Man doesnít enter life except by woman.
What Joseph Campbell says deserves deep thought.
In the garden Man and Woman are not different
GENESIS 5:1 SAYS THAT GOD CREATED MAN
MALE AND FEMALE AND
CALLED THEIR NAME ADAM
MALE AND FEMALE AND CALLED THEIR NAME ADAM
EATING FROM THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL
IS TAKING FROM THE LEFT SIDE CARNAL MIND.
THERE ARE GOOD THINGS THAT COME FROM THERE
AND THERE ARE EVIL THINGS THAT COME FROM THERE
Campbell: They eat of the tree of Good and Evil.
They eat the knowledge of opposites.
They discover that they are different.
They feel shame.
Now male and female are no longer parts of the same line.
Now they are opposites .
All goes down in our Bible.
The woman is the heavy.
But in reality there are no opposites
TO IDENTIFY WITH GOD YOU
MUST IDENTIFY WITH YOURSELF
Joseph Campbell said, Eternity pours itself into the world.
The basic idea of mythology is of the God who becomes
many in us.
The God who lives in me is called the inhabitant of my body.
To identify with that immortal aspect of yourself is to
identify yourself with divinity.
2 Cor 6:16
As God has said, I will dwell in them and walk in them and
I will be their God and they shall be my people.
The Kingdom of God is within you.
Eternity is beyond all categories of thought.
That is why Jesus said 5 times
In Matthew 6:25 to 6:33 Take no thought.
That is an important part of all oriental religions.
Experiencing the inhabitant within.
We on the other hand think about God.
God is a word and idea.
But in essence it is beyond all categories of thought.
It is no thing.
It is no thought.
It goes past anything that can be thought.
We think of God as father.
WHERE GOD IS NOT FATHER
Joseph Campbell says that in cultures where god is mother
the whole world is her body.
The male God is usually someplace else.
The female God is all there is and we are all part of her body.
The divine power is asexual.
The early cells are just cells biologically .
The amoeba is not male or female.
They develop sexuality later.
So God then is neither male or female.
THE MALE GOD IS SOMEWHERE ELSE
THE FEMALE GOD IS EVERYWHERE,
AND WE ARE INSIDE OF HER
Joseph Campbell says. If you think of God as a He or She,
then you understand nothing of God.
In the ancient religions when one delves deep into him/her self
there comes a moment when he realizes that he/she is both
mortal and immortal. Both male and female.
Actually it was the desire that is and was the fall.
Males desire for company.
Thus the single entity split and it became male and female.
The opposites had arrived.
The arrival of the human species was God telling man,
ďDonít eat thatĒ.
Man had to eat the fruit in order to become the initiator of his own life.
The fall made him into a God.
Gen 3:22 Behold the man has become as one of us.
John 10:34 Is it not written in your law. I said you are gods ?
THE FALL HAD TO HAPPEN
Life really began by the act of disobedience that had to happen.
PEOPLE TODAY ARE SEARCHING
Joseph Campbell said that today there is so much searching.
People are looking for ways of experiencing the inner world
that is opening transcendence to them.
The vast ground of silence that we all share.
THE HINDU GREETING
Joseph Campbell says, In India people recognize this.
They greet each other with the palms placed together.
They then bow to the other person.
The palms together that we use in prayer is Hindu.
The greeting is one in which is said that the God that is in you
recognized the God in the other.
These people are aware of the divine presence in all things.
When you enter an Indian home as a guest you are greeted
as a visiting deity.
They recognize what is in you.
John 14:20 I in the father, you in me and I in you
John 14:23 Christ and the father dwelling in you.
That is the essential quality, when you realize that God is
the creation and you are a creature.
You realize that God is within you and within all life.
HOW DID WE LOSE UNITY ?
GOD BECAME ANGRY
All we are left with, is that somebody ate the wrong food,
or said some words that got God ticked off.
Well to find the answer we must now listen to the myths.
So then we may be open to truth, universal cosmic truth.
In this way we transcend all things. No opposites.
Galatians 3:28 sums it up. There is neither Jew, nor Greek,
bond nor free.
Neither male or female.
For you are all one in Christ.
BECAUSE ALL ARE PHOTON
AND PHOTON IS NEITHER MALE OR FEMALE
All is one.
All is universal oneness.
In nothingness there is one.
It is all in all
SAID WHAT PACAL VOTAN SAID
Joseph Campbell says the calling of all mythology and life
is to put the harmony of our own body and mind in accord
with the harmony of nature.
But you have to become interested to feel a sense of wonder,
to invest in the journey of transcendent possibilities.
LIFE IS A POEM
To see life as a poem and yourself part of the poem.
To be part of the journey.
Looking and listening.
The person who thinks he has found the ultimate truth
is wrong says Joseph Campbell.
The Chinese Tao-Te Ching says.
He who thinks he knows does not know.
He who knows that he does not know, knows.
To unite the field of mother nature with your nature,
to harmonize with all life.
But religion has us consumed with sin and with our guilt.
Rama Krishna said If all you think of are your sins
then you are a sinner.
GOING TO CONFESSION
This brought Joseph Campbell to his younger years.
Going to confession.
Meditating on each little sin.
Making up some sins.
His life then changed.
Instead of saying bless me father for I have sinned,
he would follow Krishna and say.
Bless me father for I have been great.
Listen to the good things I have done this week.
God wants us to be alive to be self-motivated.
Matthew 5:14 You are the light of the world
Luke 17:21 The kingdom of God is within you
Thatís what Jesus wanted you to know.
THE CHURCH DOES NOT PRAISE YOUR GREATNESS
AS JESUS DID
THE CHURCH SPEAKS OF YOUR SINS
Thus you are put in a servile condition all of your life.
AND ZEN PHILOSOPHIES
Joseph Campbell talks of a Zen philosopher Dr. T Suzuki.
He stood up to comment on Christianity at a meeting
that Campbell conducted.
God against man, man against God.
Man against nature. Nature against man.
Nature against God. God against nature.
Very funny religion.
RELIGION OF THE EAST IS OF GOD AND NATURE
RELIGION OF THE WEST CONCEIVES RELIGION
OF THE EAST AS EVIL
THE RELIGION OF THE WEST
Joseph Campbell comments how strange religion is in the West.
In the religions of the East you identify with God.
You identify with nature and you fight evil.
The religion of the West associates this Eastern religious
way with evil.
Every religion is true in one way or another.
It itís understood symbolically, but when it gets stuck in itís own symbols
interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble.
THE BIBLE CONFIRMS THE ABOVE STATEMENT
OF JOSEPH CAMPBELL
Psalm 78:2 God speaks in parables
Proverbs 1:6 Wisdom is understanding dark sayings
Galatians 4:24 The Old Testament story of Abraham is allegory
Mark 4:34 Without a parable, Jesus spoke not
2 Cor. 3:6 Be not a minister of the letter, for the letter kills
Mark 4:22 Unto you is given to know the mystery of God.
To those without all things are parables.
WHY THEN SHOULD WE EVER READ THE BIBLE LITERALLY?
Yet thatís what Christian teachers do .
TAKING THE BIBLE LITERALLY
MEANS YOU DON'T KNOW
AND THERE IS NO WAY TO FIND OUT
Then you are in trouble, because you donít know and there
is no way to find out.
Joseph Campbell suggests that we begin to pay attention to this.
As he explains.
The Bible says Jesus ascended into heaven.
If we take that literally then there is no place for him to go
but to wander forever in space.
We all have to then keep in mind that the Jesus of the Bible
was quoted as saying that the Kingdom of heaven is within us.
IF JESUS ASCENDED 2000YEARS AGO AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT
HE WOULD STILL BE IN THIS GALAXY
HIS HEAVENLY FATHER WOULD BE LOOKING AT HIS WATCH
WHERE IS THAT KID?
It is totally a physical, literal, scientific impossibility.
But if you believe Jesus and listened to what he taught,
then you will understand.
JESUS ASCENSION WAS NOT TO OUTER SPACE
IT WAS TO INNER SPACE
To the place from which all beings come.
Into the consciousness that is the source of all things.
The Kingdom of Heaven within.
Thus we must obey him and ascend with him.
Returning to the source.
Alpha and Omega.
The source of all things.
Shakespeare said that art is a mirror held up to nature.
That nature is your nature and all the wonderful poetic i
mages of mythology refer to you.
The Bible says that you are the light of the world
THE MESSAGE IN THE BOTTLE
Joseph Campbell says: The story of Jesus ascending to heaven
is a message in a bottle from a shore someone has visited before.
Now Joseph Campbell makes a wonderful point for us all to bask in.
To say ďI and the father are oneĒ as Jesus said is blasphemy for us.
However in the Gospel of Thomas Jesus says, ďHe who drinks
from my mouth will become as I and I shall be as he.
Now that is Buddhism.
We are all manifestations of Buddha or Christ consciousness.
We simply donít know it.
The word Buddha means the one who wakes up.
Let us look at the Bible and compare.
Romans 13:11, And knowing that now it is high time to awake
out of sleep. For now is our salvation nearer then we had believed.
So then as Joseph Campbell taught, as Jesus taught, as Buddha taught,
as Krishna taught:
THERE IS A WAY
There is a way.
A way that will take us above and beyond the sorrow and
the fear and the guilt.
A way that will bring us to a oneness with nature.
No more to be feared but to be joined as family.
To become one with all life on this planet and in this universe.
But to be one, we must follow the one.
The one who parts from the crowd and says follow me.
PUT YOUR RELIGION DOWN
Put your traditions down.
Put your guilt down.
Put your fears down.
Put your life down.
Follow the inner one who says,
Follow me and I will take you to the kingdom.
I will ascend and you will ascend, and we will sit at the right hand
of all that is, or ever can be.
