Re: [Pythagorean-L] Re: Pythagorean esotericism
- Bill,Really? Do you have any training advise, or are you just blowing smoke? To quote Acts, "men and brethren, what should we do?"Really. it's very nice to see that it's possible to find an esoteric meaning in ancient literature, but how does a person come to 'know thyself." Is there a method? Is there a practice? is there a path? Did anyone leave a road map? You're the smart guy. tell us how your 10X10 matrix helps us come to know what we truly are, and is that all there is to it. Or is it possible that it might require a very comprehensive training regimen to accomplish?I've looked at your book. It shows a handful of interesting things, but ultimately is just window dressing. What is the rest of the story. How can a person systematically come to understand their essential nature. The Buddhists have a method. The Brahmins have a method, the Taoists have a method. The Rishis have a method. Is there a method in the West? I think there is, do you know what it is?Salus,James

Date: Saturday, February 12, 2011, 4:35 AMActually Les:
The mathematical matrix that I discerned in all those genres of thought is proof of the existence of a spiritual realm. It is only by
seeing this consistency around the world: the same system is
mindboggling. The matrix is obviously a missive from the transcendent.
Jung and Campbell are two of my best authors. In fact I see a great
deal of Jung in the sacred scripture: especially his TRANSCENDENT
FUNCTION, which is a major paradigm in the soul/psyche.
36-years of studying and decoding the esoteric science in those genres
of thought leaves little else but for me to learn about myself: as
KNOW THYSELF: the dropping of biases, prejudices and preconceived
notions demonstrates that to me: I am not the same man as I was
yesterday. It means to me to know who and what you are and where
you are going.
I AM AN IMMORTAL SPIRITUAL BEING THAT COMES INTO THIS WORLD TO
EXPERIENCE AND TO ENJOY IT. WHEN THIS EXPERIENCE IS OVER I WILL
DISCARD THIS EARTHLY COIL (EGO CONSCIOUSNESS) ONLY TO PUT ON ANOTHER
ONE: MY SOUL/PSYCHE WILL BE TABULA RASA TO BEGIN AND EXPERIENCE THIS
NEW LIFE. THIS PATTERN WILL CONTINUE INTO ETERNITY. I HAVE THE GIFT
OF ETERNAL LIFE EVERLASTING.
YES, I KNOW WHO AND WHAT I AM: I AM THE SON OF GOD.
Every single human being should eventually be able to make this same
statement before they past from this earthly coil. If not they they
will learn what hell is all about. Hell/Hades can be Paradise or
the river of fire. However, these are states of mind where the
the individual experiences either Heaven or Hell: it is his choice
This is what these genres of thought teach esoterically
(mathematically and linguistically).
This is the whole purpose of life; to experience existence: one's own thoughts. This can not be done in the empyream. Just as a person
does not experience the dream until moments after obtaining
consciousness. One needs a field of reference to translate his dream:
this is why the material world is necessary.

If you have not gone down that road, in my view, you have not even started to understand. You or I will never expose the existence of "God". "God" will expose us for what we are. I still struggle. But at least I have had exposure to the ideas of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell. And that has been a revelation and, painfully, useful.

True, but there is more to Good and Evil than meets the eye, thine single eye.
You left off the descriptive noun that gives meaning to the words Good and Evil, the word Knowledge.
When it comes to Evil, the Fruit of the matter, the subject matter,
is the knowledge of Good and Evil that is born of a Single Source;
Knowledge having a dual quality, Absolutely Bad Knowledge, the Greatest cause of all suffering; Absolutely Bad Knowledge mistaken to be Absolutely Good knowledge as it issues forth from it single source.
Self being the source, origin, of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is a self that is not true to self, is Duplicitous, Guileful.
You best believe that the Knowledge of Good and Evil does exist.
True, if you are not self-deceptive, self being the origin, the single source of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, Knowledge having a dual quality, Absolutely Bad Knowledge mistaken to be Absolutely Good Knowledge, is Knowledge born of a single source, said single source, Individual, not being true to himself.
The Knowledge of Good and Evil, said Knowledge being the fruit born a single source, Knowledge that is not of a reality that is readily apparent, that is not measurable as to location and momentum in Space-Time, is Absolutely bad knowledge, is not truthful, is duplicitous, has a dual quality, Absolutely Bad Knowledge mistaken to be Absolutely Good Knowledge.
As Lao Tzu might say;
Knowledge, as it issues forth from a single source, having a dual quality, being duplicitous, guileful, deceptive, the single source of said knowledge being untrue to himself, the Absolutely Bad Knowledge as it comes to fruition, is made manifest Absolutely Good Knowledge, as it issues forth from the single source, is give two Names, The Knowledge of Good and Evil.
