The Spiritual

Money Power and Usury are the battles on the material plane. The real issue is our enslavement to the material world, our preoccupation with self.

The Krishna and the Buddha associated self with what the Buddha called the five aggregates: awareness, mind, heart, senses and matter.

Jesus told us to crucify self. To me, this is the same as Buddha teaching to stop clinging to the five aggregates. Both Jesus and Paul tell us we must first die (to self) to be born again. Life begins when self dies.

Lao Tse also gave good advice on how to die to ego. I’m profoundly impressed with the Tao, which is very close to Christianity proper.
Here is its first chapter in a ‘literal’ translation:

1. The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao
2. The name that can be named is not the eternal name
3. The nameless is the origin of Heaven and Earth
4. The named is the mother of myriad things
5. Thus, constantly without desire, one observes its essence
6. Constantly with desire, one observes its manifestations
7. These two emerge together but differ in name
8. The unity is said to be the mystery
9. Mystery of mysteries, the door to all wonders

What this says is that there is the ‘nameless’, which is the Transcendental Creator, and the ‘named’, which is God Immanent, the Creator active in His creation.

Verses 5 and 6 have the same meaning as ‘to be in this world, but not of it’.

My main inspiration is Jesus Christ. Only after getting a real grasp of Christianity proper, did I start to really admire other traditions, although I studied these first and without them I would probably never have understood Jesus.

Here’s John 1:1-4:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

These, to my mind, are the most important ontological verses of the Bible. They also make clear that God has two aspects: Transcendent and Immanent. Both beyond and in His creation.
Jesus called God Transcendent the Father and God Immanent the Son.

Just like the Tao, John here says that the Word, God Immanent, created everything. Jesus Christ is actually the name of the Word.

In John 1:10 and 1:14 John says Jesus the man was the Word incarnate and I have no doubt that he was.

That’s why Jesus was the most important of all God’s messengers. He WAS God. That’s why the Bible, ultimately, is the greatest of all books, although it is badly compromised, these days, both through translation and because important texts were left out of its final version.

When Jesus says I, He is expressing the words of the Word. This is very important to understand the Bible. Exoteric Christianity does not understand this, hence its preoccupation with a dead man.

The Word lives. He is the Savior. The Creator of Everything. He is with us now, and we are in Him. When we pray to Jesus, we pray to the Living Spirit that we can learn to see in meditation. This Spirit is not really hard to recognize. The Bible explains God is eternal, unchangeable. If you see ’emptiness’, as the Buddhist call it, in meditation, the eternal, the unchangeable. Then you know the Word. The Name(d). Then you know Jesus Christ.

To believe in Jesus is not to say: Jesus is Lord and my Savior. To believe in Jesus is to transcend self, connect to ’emptiness’ and to learn its will and do it. Then you are sinless and saved. Then there is no more karma.

The Bible provides so many insights into our current predicament. Jesus’ predictions of how things would get worse, and our task in living through it:
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) (Matthew 24:13-15)

The Holy Place is to be selfless in ’emptiness’. In Jesus Christ, the Word, the Living God.

There is little need for religious strife. The Word has no love for a battle of words. All we need is to see that there are many words for the One Word. Many names for the One Name.

Mystics of all ages and all persuasions have described an unspeakable mystical experience. I have not experienced it. But I do believe that when “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6), He means that when we truly die to self and come close enough to the Word, He, at the time that He chooses, will let you know the Father, God Transcendent. This is the mystical experience.

    Anthony, what you say is very true and beautiful, but Jesus established a Church, and a priesthood. Yes we can access Him in the present through denial of self, prayer and meditation, for He is immanent. But to fully commune with Him in the Way He most desires us to, we must enter into His Body, the Church, and eat His flesh through the Eucharist which unites us physically and spiritually to His Sacrifice on the Cross. Yes, we must strive to empty ourselves, so God can fill us with grace. Emptiness itself is not the end goal, but rather the Light that shines in it. I pray you will find the counsel of a holy Catholic priest, and participate more fully in the deep mystery of faith.

    So well written. I practice Tai Chi Chi Gong every day and experience sometimes the Tao. I’m also “getting” Christianity.

    It seems to me that bank “loans” can not be called proper loans, since no property transfer takes place. If this is correct, all banks commit fraud every time they use the word “loan” to refer to the money they issue. I was wondering if you would care to comment on that.

    • Yes, you’re right. The bank doesn’t lend anything, it’s all credit based money.

      What the bank in fact does is ‘capitalize’ our ‘promise to pay’ and slap interest on OUR OWN promise to pay. This is not ‘fraudulent’ in the sense that it’s legal,but it’s of course absurd and quite relevant to our theme of interest-free money.

        Thank you for your reply. I still can not understand why bank money is legally a loan since a loan is a temporary transference of property and banks do not transfer anything and the money that they “lend” are added to the money supply. They simply buy interest baring debt. This is not lending! It is “confering the privileges attached to their titles”! I will, however, take your word for it since i am no lawyer. Thanx again for your reply.

        • You can look at it from a legal, moral and monetary perspective.

          I think we can agree that it sucks on all three counts.

          However, anything that is not forbidden is allowed and credit creation by banks and selling it as a ‘loan’ is not forbidden. I agree a good case could be made on several counts about the fraudulent nature of the contract, but my previous point is the other side of the coin.

    • thanks for this dublinsmick!

      I’m in Dublin atm, your name suggests you may be too. I’m here for a monetary reform meeting, see for the details below. Let me know if you want to meet up, I tried sending a mail, but the mail address is not working.

      • Dublinsmick permalink

        Thanks Anthony I love to but I am in Florida. I used Dublinmick simply because I am Irish and they tell me one of the largest pubs in Dublin carries my family name! I came up with this name years ago simply to be able to post on various blogs.

    Speaking of Jesus, there are two copies of the Essene Gospel, one in the vatican cellar and one in the Austrian museum. All will have to make up their own minds concerning this however but I think this is what Jesus really said

    I came into the “truth movement” long before the advent of the internet. I came to know “the Truth” by studying the Word of God. I discovered that the monetary system is a wasteland of greed, indifference and malice. I saw this clearly from the wisdom of The Word.

    Although I am very much a Protestant, I hosted the Pilgrims of St. Micheal in BC back in the mid 90’s. I was fully in support of their position as originally taught by Maj. C.H. Douglas, as a matter of fact, I still am.

    I was in the thick of it when, through providence, I lost everything and found myself living on a mountainside with nothing but a Bible, a pup tent and sleeping bag. It was during this time that I saw the god of the Bible become the Living God, the Word incarnate. My needs were always met as I threw myself wholly into His arms, trusting Him for everything. Yes, I had to work at survival, but my needs were always met. I can testify to many a miracle during that time.

    During that time, interesting reading material found it’s way to me. The vast majority of it was to do with money, and the Babylonian system we were/are trapped in. I have no doubt that the “prosperity movement” that has swept through the Church was a clever ploy to distract and destroy the faithful. The church is still reeling from that heresy. God want’s us to be His vessel, not to gain riches, but to share the riches of His love. Will He prosper us? Sure. Or not. It’s up to Him and there is no secret formula.

    As the 90’s came to a close, I found myself at the fore-front of the “De-Tax Movement”. Hanging out with the “3 wise men” as they liked to call themselves. Ok, there is no law requiring the payment of the income tax. Yawn. Just try and bypass their system and see how far you get! They, the banksters, own the whole freeking thing and work directly for the god of this world, satan. It is a life and death struggle between Jacob and Esau that has been going on for 3 millennium.

    Where are these “wise men” today? One is a convicted criminal who escaped serious jail time but got a whopper of a fine. The other two, who were just average guy’s caught up in the excitement, faded back in to their regular lives as far as I know.

    All I remember through this whole time was how I knew the truth about it all but that these guys were milking the anger and desperation of the public, at least the ones who were awake. They made merchandise of the truth and as such, ruined it for a lot of well meaning people…

    Sheesh, where am I going with this…

    Bottom line. The Word, Yeshua Messiah, aka Jesus Christ, is the only way out of this mess. This mess is called Sin. Through repentance, which isn’t feeling sorry for yourself, but a 180 degree turn from the world’s way of doing things, you can begin to know the Father through His Son. There is no solution on this earth, before the return of Yeshua, for the monetary woes we all live with. We will see the Babylonian system collapse. We will see the Anti-christ rule for a short time. We will see millions lose their lives. We will be like the seed that dies in the ground before it is raised from the dead with new life.

    I enjoy your writings Anthony. I didn’t write this to discourage you but to encourage you to keep spreading the truth of this evil system. If, through that medium, some come to a saving knowledge of Jesus, then your labor is not in vain… YAH Bless you!

  6. To philosophize the Word of God with the limitations of the human mind is to greatly err. For instance, not one word on the “knowing” of Jesus Christ, is mentioned as concerns “sin”. Nor was “repentance” included. We are not to float around in the “emptiness” of mind in order to know Jesus; we are to come to Him in faith(which is a gift from Him and not of ourselves)believing that He is the Way of Salvation and there is no other; that, indeed “there is not one good” nor one perfect in mind. Rather, without Jesus, we are the “children of wrath”. Coming to Him in faith, He declares us righteous through that faith. So, though He was “a dead man” in the flesh, He arose from the grave and is seated with the Father in the Heavenly places. In due time, He will return, cleansing the earth by the sword of His mouth, the fire of purification and the just cause of His will; literally and not according to some figment of our imaginings

    “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Col. 2:8

      Amen, Lonni. To say that salvation is achieved by ridding ourselves of self, and tapping into this or that, is to preach salvation by works. The King James Bible is the perfect word of God in English. And it clearly teaches that salvation can only be received as a gift, through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ, who was sinless, and suffered to earn forgiveness for all our sins: past, present and future. Once one has taken this leap of faith, to trust on Jesus for everlasting life, then the believer has passed from death unto life, once and forever.

      “8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

      “9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.” –Ephesians 2

      “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

      –John 5:24

      By the way, Anthony, this blog is amazing, and it’s helping me see the error of my former Austrian ways. Now, if we can get you to believe the simple salvation message of the King James Bible, forget all of this Eastern false teaching, and get saved, then you’ll really be onto something. Thank you for your invaluable work. I’ll be reading.

  7. Dear Anthony and dear friend, your words above are written right out of your heart, but also out of mine. Probably you know where our home is. It is where the heart is.

    Loving greetings,
