The Spiritual Gospel of Saint Jesus of
Galilee, Re-Told-and Revealed
Again

by Adi Da Samraj

During
his stay in Rome, the missionary disciple Peter wrote an
account of the lifetime doings of his Spiritual Master,
Jesus of Galilee. Peter did not, however, include all that
he knew, nor did he even hint at the Spiritual, or esoteric,
teachings of Master Jesus, but he only selected what he
thought most useful for establishing the attitude of faith
within the hearts of those who
were only beginning to be instructed.

When Peter died, Mark, who had been close to Peter in
Rome, went on to Alexandria,
bringing both his own recent and more esoteric writings and
the writings of Peter. Combining all of those writings with
his own earlier text on the life and teachings of Jesus,

Mark composed a new and more advanced report, in order to
include more of the things necessary for progress toward
esoteric, or truly Spiritual, knowledge. Thus, Mark composed
a second and more Spiritual version of his own earlier
“gospel”, for the use of those who were entered into the
“advanced” process, in which those who are ready are moved
toward Perfection.

Mark did not, in his “second gospel”, openly speak the
things that should not be casually spoken, nor did he write
down the specific mystical teachings of Master Jesus, but,
to the stories he had already written, he added yet others,
and, in addition, he introduced certain sayings which he, as
a teacher of mystical doctrines, knew would be fully
understood only by the more insightful hearers. Mark knew
from experience that those who understood on a deeper level
would, upon hearing the Truth “spoken in parables”, be
heart-moved to ask for further instruction, which would, in
turn, lead them into the mystical and Spiritual interior of
that Divine Truth otherwise hidden by the mind’s own “seven
veils”.

Mark wrote all that was appropriate, with great
circumspection, and, at his
death, he left his “second gospel” to the
congregation of devotees in
Alexandria, where it was most carefully kept, and where it
was read only to those who were prepared to be initiated
into the greater understanding and the true Spiritual
practice.

As it is said, “Not all things that are true are heard by
all who listen.” Even if the totality of Spiritual Truth is
stated plainly, the inner light of the Spiritual Truth
always remains hidden from those who are yet mentally and
emotionally incapable of accepting it. It is with this trust
and certainty that I am now moved at heart to speak freely
of the Divinely revealing life, the public moral and
religious teachings, and the “inner circle” Spiritual
teachings of Master Jesus of Galilee.

There is always more that can be said about the life and
teachings of a true Spiritual Master, such as Jesus of
Galilee. Nevertheless, whatever is said must be measured
carefully, to see if it accords with Truth itself, and with
truly Spiritual experience. Therefore, hear ,this Galilean
gospel with a heart established in the practice of right
life, and with an eye made single by concentration in the
Origin of Light Above the head and shoulders of humanity.
[Clement of Alexandria, letter]

At the Origin of everything is the Divine Spirit-Breath,
the Intelligent Life-Principle, the One and Indivisible and
All-Pervading Matrix of the total cosmic world. [john
1:1] And the Divine SpiritBreath is always One with the
Indivisible State of Divine Being. [John 1: 2]

The Divine Spirit-Breath is the Single Light of the
world. The Divine Spirit-Breath is the Eternal Truth that
Pervades and Sustains all beings. The Divine Spirit-Breath
is the Indivisible Light, and Love, and Truth, and Way in
which all beings and things arise and change and pass out of
sight. [John 1:3]

All things and beings come to exist through the Divine
Agency of the Spirit-Breath of Light and Love. Therefore,
whoever surrenders heart and mind and body into the Divine
Light of Truth by

Means of the Spirit-Breath is truly alive-because
everything and everyone is fully sustained only through
complete surrender into the Spirit-Breath of Divine Light
and Love. [John 1:4]

The Spirit-Breath is the Divine Power that Sustains the
body of the human being. That same Spirit-Breath of Divine
Power is also the inner Light of Love, that can Guide the
heart along the Divine Way that leads beyond the darkness
and Spiritual blindness of the un-knowing world. That Divine
Spiritual Light of Love is, now and forever, Shining Above
the world. And the Spirit-Breath of Divine Love-Light may
also Descend into the body of any human being it chooses to
Bless. And no darkness or dark power in the cosmic world can
ever defeat or destroy or steal away the Spiritual
Love Light that Breathes the
world. And the Eternal Divine Love-Light Shines on all
beings from the Divine Place of Origin, Above the body and
the mind of every Spirit-Breathing being in the world.
[John 1:5]

The time has come-indeed, the present moment is always
the very hour-when true. worshippers must understand the
Divine as Indivisible Truth, and how to worship Indivisible
Truth by Means of Spirit-Breath. The heart of every living
being is always yearning for Spirit-Breath, in order to
Breathe the Way to the Divine domain of One and Only Truth.
[John 4:23] Truth is Spirit-Breath, the Way and the
Means of Divine Life. Therefore, if it is Truth itself we
would worship, we must worship by Means of Spirit-Breath,
which is Divine Power, Descending from Above. And our
Spirit-Breathing life of worship must always be practiced as
a Way of right life, founded on right understanding of the
human bodily self and the cosmic world. [John
4:24]

The Spiritual Master called John, the Water-Baptizer, did
his work in the Judean countryside, away from the cities,
and especially away from Jerusalem, the principal city of
the time and place of John. And
John called on everyone to be transformed by a change at the
heart of mind and feeling. And he always helped those who
came to him by performing a kind of water ritual of
heart-cleansing, invoking the heart to come forward, and to
purify and righten the life by means of the relinquishment
of the errors and the results of Spiritual ignorance.
[Mark 1:4] And great numbers of people from the
Judean countryside, and even from Jerusalem, made a
pilgrimage to John, and were baptized by him in the Jordan
river, after heart-confessing and sincerely renouncing their
habits and practices of un-Spiritual living. [Mark
1:5]

John was always dressed ascetically, in rough camel-hair
garments, with a leather belt tied tight around his waist,
as an expression of his ascetical revulsion toward what is
below the belt. And, whenever he was not fasting, he
survived on a meager diet of wild forage, including insects,
such as locusts, and wild honey, and such. [Mark
1:6]

John always spoke aloud about his own mission, which was
mostly intended only to prepare people for Spiritual life,
but he also always spoke aloud about the mission of his
coming disciple, who would be a full-time
Spirit-Baptizer:

“Someone Spiritually more powerful than I will succeed
me. By comparison, I am not fit to bend down and untie his
sandal straps. [Mark 1:71]
have only been baptizing you with water, simply in order to
cleanse you, but he will baptize you with the Divine
Spirit-Breath, in order to return you to the Divine domain,
that Stands Eternally Above the world.” [Mark
1:8]

In time, Jesus of Galilee came to John. And Jesus was
baptized by John, in the water of the Jordan river.
[Mark 1:9] And, when he began the cleansing
water-baptism of Jesus, John invoked the Spiritual Blessing
of the Divine Spirit-Breath over Jesus’ head. And, as Jesus
stood up, with John’s baptismal water and Spiritual
invocation washing over him, Jesus perceived an opening in
and Above his head. And the Spirit-Breath of Divine Power
Descended upon Jesus from Above, much like a dove flies down
to land upon a tree. And, so,
the long-expected successor of John had truly arrived.
[Mark 1:10]

After that, the Divine Spirit-Power Breathed Jesus on his
Way, out and alone, into the wilderness of the greater
countryside of Judea. [Mark 1:12]
And Jesus fasted and wandered for forty days, being put to
the test by the dark influences of the ego-mind.
Nevertheless, all the while Jesus was wandering and
struggling there, among the wild animals and all the natural
elements, the Spirit-Breath of Divine Power constantly
protected and nurtured him. And, by Means of that always
Spirit-Breathing ordeal, Jesus Realized profound
self-understanding, great Wisdom of right life, true higher
Spiritual knowledge and experience, and an indomitable
impulse to fulfill his evident Spiritual mission in the
world of his birth. [Mark 1:13]

After a time, John was imprisoned, for insulting the
Judean king. ‘ So, Jesus returned to Galilee, to proclaim
his public moral and religious teachings, and, in due
course, to Reveal his esoteric Spiritual teachings to the
“inner circle” of all who were prepared, by means of true
devotion and right life, to receive them. [Mark
1:14] The public moral and religious message Jesus gave
to all was always similar to
that of John, but it was spoken in words peculiar to Jesus’
own character and intelligence:

“The time is always late. The Divine domain is always
Above you-and always within your heart. Change your worldly
and heartless habits-and put your trust in the Divine Light,
that is always Descending onto you, and always growing Alive
in your heart.” [Mark 1:15]

Once he was back in Galilee, Jesus immediately went for a
walk, along the shoreline of the lake there. And, soon,
Jesus saw two men, fishing there. One was named Simon, and
the other, who was Simon’s brother, was named Andrew. As was
common-

place for them, being part of a family of fishermen,
Simon and Andrew were tossing their fishing-nets into the
lake of Galilee. [Mark 1:16] As if out of nowhere,
Jesus suddenly approached the two men, and he said to them:
“If you become my followers, I will have you fishing for
people, instead of fish.” [Mark 1:17]

And, on the spot, without another word of discussion,
Simon and Andrew abandoned their family obligations and
became followers of Jesus. Such was the Divinely Powerful
nature of Jesus’ personality and Spiritual Presence that
people became his devoted followers in the instant of merely
sighting him and hearing his call to them for service.
[Mark 1:18]

After walking further along the shoreline of the lake of
Galilee, Jesus saw two more fishermen, one named James-who
was the son of an elderly man, named Zebedee, who was also
there-and, also, James’s brother John. James and John were
busy mending the family fishing-nets while sitting in a
boat. [Mark 1:19] As
Jesus had already done with Simon and Andrew, he suddenly
called out to James and John to follow him-and, without
hesitation, they left the family fishing business. And their
father, Zebedee,. found himself sitting alone in the
boat with several of the hired
workers.

And, so, thus it was that James, John, Simon, and Andrew
all became followers of Jesus. [Mark 1:20]

On one noteworthy occasion, Jesus began to speak his
esoteric Spiritual teachings to an individual who was,
eventually, to become a member of the “inner circle” of
sincere and rightly living people that were the principal
devotees of Jesus.

A pharisee, named Nicodemus, who was, himself, a Judean
religious leader, [john 3:1] approached Jesus for a
confidential meeting. So, Nicodemus met with Jesus
privately, at night, in what was to become the typical
circumstance wherein Jesus would give both Spiritual
instruction and his Spiritual Blessing-Transmission to
people he accepted within his “inner circle”.

To begin their meeting, Nicodemus addressed Jesus very
formally, with great respect, saying, “Rabbi, I have
certainty that you are a true
Spiritual Master, and that you have Descended to here from
the Divine domain Above.” [John
3:2]

And this was Jesus’ reply to Nicodemus: “No one in this
world can get to know the Divine Spiritual Presence without,
themselves, first being born to here from Above.” [John
3:3]

Nicodemus was sincerely puzzled by Jesus’ reply. And, so,
Nicodemus said to Jesus, “How can anybody who has already
been born here get to be reborn while they are still alive?
It is not possible for anyone to get back into their
mother’s womb and have their mother give birth to them all
over again.” [John 3:4]

So, Jesus spoke again, to make himself even more clear.
“No one can re-enter the Divine domain Above without first
being Spiritually re-born here. [John 3:5]
The merely bodily human being is, in effect, born from
water, which is a merely natural element.

The Divine domain is entirely Spiritual in its nature and
characteristics, and, so, nothing merely elemental can fit
into the Divine domain. (John 3:61 Do not let yourself get
all confused about my statement to you, that every one must
be born to here from Above. [John
‘3:71 The Divine Spirit-Breath Pervades everywhere in
this entire world, like a wind that blows through an open
place. You may hear the sound of a wind, but you cannot
observe where it originated, nor can you predict where it
may go next. Similarly, every one who receives the Divine
Spirit-Breath has, in fact, received what has Descended from
Above. Therefore, if anyone receives the Divine
Spirit-Breath here, in this world, he or she has, in fact,
been born to here from Above. And this Event of being
Spiritually re-born to here is a Mystery of Divine Spiritual
Transmission, that comes freely from the Divine domain
Above, and that requires total and truly devotional
surrender-rather than cleverness, control, and strategy-if
any one is to receive it.” [John 3:81]

And Nicodemus, still wondering what to do, asked further,
“How can that Divine Transmission of Spirit-Breath ever be
made to happen to any one, if they cannot do anything in
particular to make it happen to
them?” [John 3:91]

So, Jesus, just about running out of patience with his
own efforts to explain
everything to Nicodemus, brought the conversation to an end,
by saying, “Nicodemus, you are a professional
religious teacher-so, why do you
not understand any of this? I am only
telling you what I know by actual experience. The
proof of the Divine Spiritual
Transmission from Above is only in the actual evidence of
the experience of receiving the Descent of the Divine
Spirit-Breath into the body. Therefore, you will understand
my teaching words about the Divine Spirit-Breath when you
experience my Spiritual Blessing in your own body, here and
now.”

And, then, Jesus Blessed Nicodemus with the Divine
SpiritBreath, all over and within the entire body of
Nicodemus, there. And, with that, Nicodemus always
afterwards knew exactly what Jesus was talking about.
[John 3:10]

Over time, Jesus wandered all over Galilee, teaching
openly, in the principal religious facilities in every town.
Wherever he went, Jesus spoke his basic public moral and
religious message, about heart-conversion, right life, and
the practice of total surrender to the Divine Light, which
Jesus always said was both Above the world and within every
heart. And, everywhere Jesus went, he would work as a healer
of everyone’s diseases of heart, and of mind, and of body.
And he did all of his healing work by inner Spiritual Means,
while, outwardly, he always simply invoked the Divine
Blessing to come from Above. And he always called on
everyone to exercise faith, and surrender, and
life-discipline, and positive, everybody-blessing
association with all others. [Matthew 4:23]
And, because of the evident effectiveness of his healing
work, and his disarming quality of self-assurance, and his
unwavering certainty which was, along with his entirely
plain-speaking manner of teaching, always spoken directly
from the rock-solid foundation of his own genuine and fully
tested experience Jesus’ fame and good reputation spread far
and wide.

Everywhere Jesus went, the people brought him everyone in
the town who was ill, everyone who suffered from any kind of
disease, everyone who was suffering chronic pain, everyone
who was apparently possessed by negative influences,
everyone who was epileptic, everyone who had become
physically paralyzed,

and so forth. And Jesus would always Bless everyone to be
healed. [Matthew 4:24] And, as a result of his
success at curing people of their ills, a large following
developed around Jesus, in Galilee, and down into the
Decapolis, and also Jerusalem, and out into all of Judea,
including the areas on the other side of the Jordan, and
even into Syria. [Matthew 4:25]

In most places, because so many people would gather
around him, Jesus would go up on the top of a physically
prominent place, so that everyone could see and hear him
clearly. And, typically, when Jesus had taken his place, the
small traveling group of his first disciples, whom he had
chosen to be his close devotee
servants
, would sit in a circle around him, to
enclose and protect him. [Matthew 5:1] And, then,
Jesus would speak aloud many of his basic moral and
religious teachings. And those teachings, taken all together
from many such occasions, speak as a kind of single great
sermon. And the sermon goes like this: [Matthew
5:2]

“All of them are Blessed who choose simplicity of life
because of the sufficiency of the Divine Spirit within them.
The Divine domain is their only true house and home.
[Matthew 5:3]

“All of them who are suffering loss and grief touch my
heart, too And I Bless them all,
to be relieved in their hearts. [Matthew 5:4]

“All of them are Blessed who choose the self surrendered
Way of life. May they be the ones who take over the
governing of human affairs. [Matthew 5:51]

“I Bless all whose hunger and thirst is for the
discipline of right life. Indeed, I have a feast of
discipline by which I will satisfy them. [Matthew
5:61]

“All of them who exhibit compassion toward all other
living beings will also experience the Compassion of Divine
regard for their own life of suffering. [Matthew
5:71]

“All of them are Blessed who are purified in their hearts
and rightened in their living. Only they are prepared to
receive the Divine Spirit from Above. [Matthew
5:81]

“All of them are Blessed who bring others into a state of
nonviolence, cooperation, tolerance, and peaceful
co-existence. Such people are, truly, born from the Divine
domain. Like sons and daughters of the Spiritual Divine,
they are the true inheritors of the Divine wealth of Spirit
in this world. [Matthew 5:91]

“All of them are Blessed who conserve their own
reactions, and who humbly tolerate the abuses inflicted on
them because of their steady commitment to right life. The
Divine domain Above is the place where their self-discipline
will be respected with Spirit
Rewards.
[Matthew 5:10]

“All of them are Blessed who practice constant love of
the Indivisible Divine Spirit with their totality of heart,
and mind, and bodily strength of will [Mark 12:301-and
who, by thus surrendering to the Divine Spirit as
Indivisibly One, do also love every other living being as if
every other were not other, but only the same as one’s own
self.” [Mark 12:31]

And many other public sayings of Jesus have also been
reported, first or second hand, by people who heard him
speak, or, otherwise, by people who heard others speak of
him. And, so, his reported teaching goes:

“The eye is to the body as a lamp is to a room. If the
eye looks out from an impure heart, the Light cannot enter,
from Above the head, to deep within. [Matthew 6:22]
If the heart is not pure, the eye broadcasts an inner
darkness, from head to toe. And, if the Light is made a
darkness by an impure heart, the darkness itself is all the
Light there is. Yet, a lamp uncovered makes a radiance to
fill the space where only darkness was the yield before.
And, if the original purity of the heart is soon uncovered,
by devotion to its Source, the eye that sees Above
broadcasts a flood of purity of Light Divine, from head to
toe. Such it is: If Light Above is taken to within the body
by a heart that is uncovered pure, no darkness can be found
at head, or foot, or all around. [Matthew 6:23]

“Right life and true devotion have only one Master. The
true Master is One and Indivisible. No one who is true
divides his or her devotion
between two sides-the Divine on one side and the world of
desires on the other. If your devotion is to such a two, you
will alternate between one and the other, and never choose
what is One and Only. Therefore, choose right life and true
devotion and these, together,
will make a single heart of you. [Matthew 6:24]

“What is sacred must be reserved for right use. What is
holy must be set apart from all misuse. If what is sacred is
not reserved and if what is holy is not set apart, the gross
consumption of religion will invade the temple of right
life, and the Holy Divine Spirit will refuse to reside
therein. [Matthew 7:6]

“Ordinary life is governed best by the simplest Wisdom.
Therefore, it comes down to this: Always act in relation to
anyone and everyone else exactly as you would choose for
them to act in relation to you. That sums up the totality of
what religion has to say about morality and practical
Wisdom. [Matthew 7:12]

“The Way of right life is a narrow path, concentrated to
a single point, looking neither right nor left, but only
straight ahead. By comparison, the contrary is a wide road,
with no boundaries, and no destination for the heart’s
arrival. Those who go down the wide road are many, and their
generations populate the entire world. [Matthew
7:13] Only right life leads
to the Divine domain Above. And only few in any generation
go the Way to Up. [Matthew 7:14]

“Right discrimination is a necessity in the world of
religion. Do not follow, or otherwise support, the mere
talkers of religion, or the hucksters who promote the sale
of would-be salvation by pretending myths and lies are Truth
itself. [Matthew 7:15]
Always separate Truth from falsehood, and require all mere
talk to prove itself by demonstrations and results that you
can directly experience. [Matthew 7:16] In your
natural garden, the healthy trees generate wholesome fruit,
[Matthew 7:17] and the
diseased trees generate diseased fruit, or even no fruit at
all. [Matthew 7:18]
Therefore, remember the lesson learned in your natural
garden, and apply it to all of
religion. If your religion will not choose the Divine
and Spiritual Truth itself, walk on to another garden, where
the Truth itself is standing free, and there to nourish
every heart to life. [Matthew 7:19]

“Everyone who is truly attentive to my teaching words and
who makes right life in response to me is like someone
who builds a house on a firm
foundation. [Matthew 7:24] Such a house will always
remain standing, regardless of the severity of weather.
[Matthew 7:25] By
contrast, anyone who pays only casual and passing attention
to my teaching words and who does not correct his or her
life in response to me is like someone who builds a house on
faulty ground. [Matthew 7:26]
Such a house will be washed away in the first of the
seasonal rains. Except for right life and true devotion,
life is a certain disaster, and the heart is a space of
storms.” [Matthew 7:27]

Whenever Jesus spoke to many, or even to any few, nearly
everyone who listened was amazed in mind, and deeply
heart moved, and moved to
rightening their lives. [Matthew 7:28] And, again
and again, it was said of Jesus that he was an authentic
true teacher, whose authority came from the profundity of
his own experience, rather than from mere books and the
hearsay of tradition. [Matthew 7:29]

And, of course, Jesus’ healing work also brought many to
him, and did much to extend his fame into the larger world.
So, it is appropriate that the reports of his healing of
minds and hearts be extended to include his healing of
bodies, too.

One time, Jesus went, with James and John, to the house
of Simon and Andrew. [Mark 1:29] The mother of
Simon’s wife was ill, and confined to her bed with a high
fever. [Mark 1:30]
Immediately, Jesus walked over to the woman and, taking her
by the hand, stood her up. And, in that instant, the woman
noticed that her temperature had “become normal, and she
felt comfortable and well. In fact, she felt so well, she
immediately began to serve Jesus, and the others, in the
full traditional manner, as invited guests.

Jesus’ healing work was always like that, and many people
were transformed in body, heart, and mind by Jesus’ daily
compassionate work of Blessing people through his healing
regard of one and all. [Mark
1:31]

Every evening, beginning just after sunset, all the many
sick and negatively possessed people were, customarily,
brought to Jesus, for him to
heal them. [Mark 1:32,33]
In his ordinary routine of every day, Jesus compassionately
healed the minds, and hearts, and bodies of many people who
were suffering. [Mark 1:34]

And, over time, Jesus went everywhere in Galilee,
teaching in the towns and in the countryside, and also doing
healing work, wherever he went. [Mark 1:39]

One time, in Capernaum, people heard it rumored that
Jesus was staying at a particular house. [Mark 2:11 So,
a crowd gathered around the outside of the house, and right
up to the front door. Jesus had no choice, so he began to
speak his teachings to the people there. [Mark 2:21 And,
as usual, people who were sick were brought forward to
him.

In one case, a paralyzed man was carried forward by four
other men. [Mark 2:3] Because of the crowd, they
could not get fully forward to the door. [Mark 2:4]
However, Jesus saw the paralyzed man, and understood the
situation. So, Jesus called out to the paralyzed man, “You
are forgiven for all you have done that is not right.”
[Mark 2:51

A group of local religious officials were also sitting
outside, near the doorway, and, when they heard Jesus’
statement to the paralytic man, they immediately reacted,
and vigorously complained about Jesus’ apparent
presumptuousness: [Mark 2:6] “Listen to this man
blaspheme. Who does he think he is? Is he claiming to be the
equal of God? Only God, Who is Indivisibly One, can forgive
human beings for their misdeeds and lawlessness.” [Mark
2:71

And, immediately, Jesus became Spiritually aware in his
heart that the official religionists were reacting to him,
and projecting their negative feelings onto him. So, Jesus
said to them, out loud, “Why get complicated and negative
about such a simple and positive thing? [Mark
2:8] What is the difference
between my saying `You are forgiven,’ and my saying `Get up
and go’?” [Mark 2:9]

Nevertheless, so as not to appear to be merely trying to
provoke reactivity in the religious
officials there, Jesus spoke again to the paralytic
man, [Mark 2:10]“Just
get up, and go.” [Mark 2:11]

And the paralytic man immediately stood up in front of
everyone, and walked out, without uttering a word. And, of
course, everyone present was full of surprise and
exclamation. [Mark 2:12]

Another man chosen by Jesus to be one of his immediate
devotee-servants, or disciples, was an official revenue
collector for the state. The man’s name was Levi-and he was
the son of a man named Alphaeus. As with the other
disciples, Jesus seemed to notice Levi in a merely casual
moment of passing by, while Levi was doing his daily
business. And Jesus simply called out to Levi to “Follow
me”. And Levi did so, immediately. [Mark 2:14]

Some time after this, on one particular occasion, Jesus
was spending an evening at Levi’s house, dining with Levi
and, also, with some of Levi’s friends, who were,
themselves, close followers of Jesus. Now, all of these
people were, in general, thought to be rather disreputable
types, at least from the “point of view” of the snobbish
religious establishment, and all the usual puritanical and
moralistically self-righteous types in the local community.
[Mark 2:15] So, on this occasion, like all the other
many occasions of Jesus’ socializing with social
“outsiders”-even such as “revenue collectors “-the gossip
was buzzing everywhere among the “righteous”, full of
hypercriticism of Jesus’ behavior, and how he was
compromising his reputation by associating with
“undesirables”, and so on. [Mark 2:16]

So, on this particular occasion, Jesus was told about the
gossip and the hypercritical rumoring, and, in his own
defense, he said, “People who are healthy do not go to a
healer for any cures. On the contrary, it°is people who
are sick that need a healer and a cure
and
they go to anyone who might do them some good. I
am a healer of hearts and minds, and, sometimes, bodies,
too. Therefore, like any other healer, I must spend my time
with those who are unwell, and who, therefore, require, and,
indeed, will fully use, my services. As for everybody else,
when they also come to understand and accept that they, too,
are sick, at least in heart and mind, then they will also
come to my table, to receive what I have to offer them.
Until then, let us enjoy our
meal in peace. [Mark 2:17]
Why should you demur, and think
of fasting, now that I have come to dine with you? Fasting,
also, has its place and time, as Master John has shown, but
when I make a feast with anyone, it makes no sense to do
anything but celebrate-with me.” [Mark
2:19,20]

Jesus gradually surrounded himself with a group of twelve
ordinary men, whom he selected and called to be his
immediate devotee-servants. And they were a kind of “inner
circle to whom he gave the fullest explanation of his public
moral and religious teachings-and, also, to whom he gave his
esoteric Spiritual teachings and his direct Spiritual
Transmission of the process of the Divine Spirit-Breath. He
also gave those same explanations and esoteric Spiritual
teachings and direct Spiritual initiations to others, but
the “twelve” were specially selected and organized to follow
and. serve Jesus on an intimate daily basis. They were
described as his “disciples”. And they were also empowered
by Jesus to go out and about, formally representing Jesus
and his moral and religious teaching-mission, and, also, in
accordance with their personal and otherwise Spiritual signs
and abilities, to extend Jesus’ own work of healing minds,
and hearts, and, sometimes, bodies, too. [Mark
3:14,15]

The twelve disciples were Simon-whom Jesus always called
“Peter”, or the “Rock”, because of Simon’s unshakably firm
personality [Mark 3:11]-and James and his brother
John-whom Jesus often called the “Sons of Thunder”, because
they were both so impulsive, and their enthusiasm so
impossible to subdue [Mark 3:11]-and, also, there
was Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Levi, and
Matthew, who was also a revenue collector, and Thomas, and
Thaddeus, and another Simon, who was from Canaan, [Mark
3:18] and Judas Iscariot. [Mark 3:19]

And Jesus gave only a few basic admonitions to his circle
of twelve intimate devotee-servants:

“Teachers are not the subordinates of their students-and,
likewise, devotees are not the superiors of their Spiritual
Master. [Matthew 10:24]

“I have no `secrets’ that I will not fully reveal to you.
I will make all my esoteric teachings plain and clear to
you. [Matthew 10:261 Therefore, in the future, what I
reveal to you by secret initiations in the overnight vigils,
you will be empowered to reveal in the openness of everyday
light, and to everybody who is fit to receive and accept and
use it right. And the secret words of the esoteric Spiritual
Way that I whisper into your ear at the time of your
initiation will, in the future, be yours to tell abroad,
into every worthy ear that listens and will obey.
[Matthew 10:27]

“In all those future days of your work, everyone who
accepts the word of teaching I have now given you to say
will, thus and thereby, become my devotees. And all those
who accept me as their Spiritual Master will, thus and
thereby, embrace and surrender to the Spirit-Breath and the
Indivisible Oneness that is Divine.” [Matthew
10:40]

When Jesus would teach in public, he would, typically,
“soften the edges” of his most demanding principles of moral
and religious instruction by speaking them in the form of
parables, or curious and somewhat roundabout stories-so
that, if people were truly interested, they would have to
ask more questions, and reach for their lessons, rather than
be given them for free, without the demand to exercise their
minds, and hearts, and daily lives to get the point.
[Mark 4:1,21

For example, Jesus would say something like, “A farmer
got up one day, and he went out to seed the ground for new
crops-for it was the right time and season. So, he goes out
to the open grounds, which he had plowed in advance of the
day. And he throws and scatters the seeds from his pouch, as
he walks, at labor’s little ease, through the earthen fields
-whistling, enjoying the walk and the signs of day, and not
always mindful of exactly where each and every seed fell to
ground. [Mark 4:31

“Now, as scattered seeds will happen, some fell directly
onto the farmer’s walking-path, where the seeds, and the
earth itself, were soon crushed hard under the farmer’s
feet. So, the wild birds, that
were constantly following the farmer as he scattered the
seeds, quickly ate up all of that easy meal. [Mark
4:4]

“And some of the seeds inevitably landed among rocks,
where the soil was thin and full of grit. [Mark 4:5]
So, even though those seeds did start to sprout up in the
following days, the daily rising of the sunlight toward the
higher and warmer months soon parched them dead, before
their roots could take hold and get down deep. [Mark
4:6]

“Yet other seeds landed among weeds, and thistle-grass,
and all that outgrows all refinement on the ground. So, the
seedlings that took root among the weeds and burrs were
never able to grow to final term and show the grain and
fruitfulness the farmer wished to grow. [Mark 4:71

“Therefore, only the best-fallen seeds made fruitful the
farmer’s year and laborious intent. Those were the seeds
that found a fertile covering ground, secure against the
birds, away from the thinnish soil among the rocks, and free
of all invading weed, and thistle
grass, and such. Whatever seeds were founded in the
soils of rightest preparation sprouted strongly deep. And
they were grown in time, to hearten this true farmer and his
house with fields and yields of plentiness, that vastly made
his wealth of life.” [Mark 4:81]

Whenever Jesus would tell one of his parables, he would
always finish the story by saying, “Whoever has a mind and
heart behind two ears will surely understand the meaning of
this tale and, so, I need not
give you intelligent people any further explanations.”
[Mark 4:91]

However, invariably Jesus’ feign of sureness
notwithstanding-as soon as the public crowd had left, and
Jesus was alone with the twelve, the disciples would always
ask for more explanations. [Mark 4:10] And, so,
Jesus would always say to them: “I have given you the Divine
Secret of the Spiritual indwelling of the Eternally
Indivisible Divine in the heart and mind and body of every
human being-but, outside the `inner circle’ of this
Spiritual Truth-teaching, I
always speak my teachings in the form of parables. [Mark
4:11] I always do this so
those who are not yet prepared, by Means of heart-conversion
to right life and to true devotion to me, will not gain
casual access to what can be made secure
only in the heart-depth. Therefore, if they only hear
me speak in symbols and riddles, they will not profane what
is sacred and holy. And, if they remain innocent and
mindless, at least to that degree, they will not lose their
heart-where every deepest secret rests asleep, and, yet,
would be made all awake, to seed new Spirit-life, when each
one’s true right day-time comes to them.” [Mark
4:12]

Having said this, again, to the twelve, Jesus, on this
one particular occasion, went on to explain to them the
fuller meanings of his parable about the farmer who was
seeding the field.

Jesus said, “If you do not even understand this parable,
how are you ever going to grasp the meaning of the Divine
Secret itself? [Mark 4:13]
The farmer is me, the teacher. The seeds are the teaching.
The places in the field represent the different degrees of
readiness, and receptivity, and understanding, and
preparedness in my public listeners. [Mark
4:14]

“Those on the ‘hard-crushed path’ are superficial and
worldly, and, so, the world itself, and all their worldly
‘bird’-friends, quickly talk them out of any response and
seriousness my words might have evoked in their hearts.
[Mark 4:15]

“Those among the `rocks’ seem to respond, and even to
understand, almost immediately, [Mark 4:161 but my words
find no depth of root in their anxious and busy lives-and,
so, their best intentions quickly vanish with the next bit
of difficulty and problem that happens to them. [Mark
4:17]

“The `weed and thistle-grass’ types are somewhat more
strongly rooted in the mind of their understanding,
[Mark 4:181 but, until they are tamed by the disciplines
of right life and true devotion, their own desires and
reactions constantly intrude, to undermine and steal away
their virtuous gains. [Mark 4:19]

“Therefore, finally, only the ‘best-fallen seeds’, or all
who are made straight by true preparedness, and by all the
disciplines of right life, and by all the living of true
devotion to me, yield to me the sign that I require. And,
therefore, they are the ones I invite to join our
fellowship-and, in time, our `inner circle’ of Divine
Secret.” [Mark 4:20]

Sometimes, Jesus would show his temper in fiery moods and
speeches especially after some wine and fraternity with
close followers. On such occasions, Jesus would let go a
shout of hard sayings, even rudely put-but always right to
the point of what must be said, at least among friends. And,
so, his “flaming table speeches
would sound something like this:

“The entire human world is now in the hands of
un-Spiritual and materialistic factions, that trap the mind
with worldly knowledge, and the heart with worldly religion,
and the body with worldly politics. All of you who merely
suffer this regime are obliged to toe the popular line, in
order to survive in these times and places-but you need not
become what you hear and see on the streets and in the daily
news. Leave the streets behind you. Turn your daily ears to
me-and do not listen to the propaganda of the worldly mind.
Hear my good news of the Spiritual Way of life-and be
transformed in your life and house, by me. [Matthew
23:2-3]

“The pea-witted official thinkers and talkers of our day
size up the universe with a standard rule, and find it
always to be one inch short of infinity. And they measure
the human form according to merely material weight-thus
finding humankind to be worth no more than salt. Therefore,
they press the load of unrelieved mortality on the back of
every man and woman, while the always
thinking
mind that mounts and crushes the body is
unwilling and unable to understand why we bother to lift a
finger. [Matthew 23:4]

“Philosophers without life. Politicians without love or
pity. Wisdom-peddlers without a Master or a Way. All who
`speak with authority’ and plan our progress as if they,
themselves, invented our very existence. Everything they say
is the product of their own self-consciousness and fear.
They think that ponderous language and the punishing powers
of state grant the weight of Truth to their arguments. They
imagine that fast talking will distract us from their dead
and mold-indentured feet-but everything they say, and
everything they do, is merely another piece of effort to
protect themselves from the
anger and the passion of all of humankind,
whose Master they only pretend to be. [Matthew
23:5-6]

“The `authorities’ love to be honored and awarded with
public ceremony, unquestioning obedience, and tongue-tied
respect. They line up in thousands, along with their
hypocritical priests, and they cock their ears, waiting to
hear us name them aloud: `Teacher, Doctor, Sovereign Head,
Father, Mother, All.’ [Matthew 23:71

“The all who are merely ordinary with gross life should
not be given the omnipotent names. The true Divine teacher
is the same as the Omnipotent Light that moves the world and
drives the heart of one and all. All of ordinary humankind
are mortal equals, like brothers and sisters. And, yet, the
adult human beings are not like children. Therefore, do not
presume the Master and the Divine are like a mere
Parent-Source. Grow up to adulthood’s height and
disenchanted calm. Serve one another, and understand that
your True Source is One-and it is the Source of all. That
True Source which the true
Spiritual Master brings to incarnation here-is the One and
Indivisible Divine Spirit-Power you could inherit with every
natural breath. [Matthew 23:8-9]

“No merely human self should presume to be the Divine
Master of humankind. Every one. of you is equally
responsible to your incarnate true Divine Master, who is
transparent to the selfless Divine Person of the world, that
here inhabits the forever Spirit-Breathing heart of every
human and non-human body that is born. [Matthew
23:10]

“The Divine Spirit-Breath inhabits the love that is
always hidden in every heart. And that love is, itself, the
only power that is Divinely appointed to rule the world.
[Matthew 23:11]

“Therefore, in order to do what is great, you must love
and serve your house of intimates-and, also, even every one
and all of humankind. Whoever expands the little self will
eventually be reduced to nothing-but whoever transcends the
little self will become as radiant as the heart’s deep is.
[Matthew 23:12]

“Damn the self-conscious and hypocritical bastards who
rule the world with heart-breaking ideas and wars as big as
nature itself. They tear out the very eyes by which all of
humankind might yet enjoy the Divine Spiritual vision of
Indivisible Truth. They do not surrender to the radiant
Spirit-Breath that is the Divine
Source and destiny of humankind-and neither do they
allow any one else to Breathe
the Way to infinity. (Matthew 23:13]

“Damn the righteous talking-thinkers and popular prophets
of mediocrity. They broadcast their petty words around the
human world, in order to reduce every man, woman, and child
to their own likeness. And, when the people hear their tiny
awful leaders speak, they imitate their ignorance and harm
in all the streets of daily cause. And, by imitation thus,
the people everywhere become more benighted and dangerous
than the shouting leadership that causes them. [Matthew
23:15]

“Damn the fake Wise Men-all of the petty authorities of
popular thinking, and all the weak-minded religious
fanatics, who merely pretend they can read the signs of
Truth for humankind. They stare in impotent and lifeless
fascination at their own genitals, scratching their heads
with sometimes `Yes’ and sometimes `No’. They say, `The body
is nothing. Only the mind glorifies our humankind.
Therefore, it is knowledge that gives power.’ What assholes
What is greater, the mind that separates itself in order to
know and control the things of fear, or the body that is
already one with the fearless Spirit-Breath of Truth? What
is greater, the thought that `I know’?-or
the body that surrenders in love? Therefore, any one who
surrenders the self bodily to the Spirit Breath of life
also, by that totality of gift, surrenders the mind, and the
feeling heart, and the every breath. Any one who transcends
all knowledge in the Spirit-Breath of love has truly learned
all there is to learn as a human being. And any one whose
heart confesses that `Salvation’ is bodily communion with
the Divine Spirit breath will forever remain alive, in the
Eternal Room of Indivisibility. [Matthew
23:16-22]

“Damn the infantile `authorities’, and all the priests of
popular and state-controlled religion. They analyze and
justify all the childishly self-possessed and self-indulgent
motivations of our humankind-but they cannot acknowledge or
heart-confess the Divine Spirit-Breath that provides the
Means for the manly sacrifice of man and woman in the
Eternal Truth. Yes, the human being should survive and grow
by right enjoyment-but not without self
transcending
love, compassion, the will to serve
others, and the
internally-Lighted disposition of true Spiritual
understanding. What assholes. They do not presume to know
the Truth, but they make doubt and every kind of less than
human problem into a natural law and obligation of the all
of humankind. [Matthew 23:23-24]

“Damn the sanctimonious religionists, enthusiastic for
every idol that words can make. Their hearts and minds and.
bodies are full of civil poison and all the effect of
self-indulgent secrecy. What assholes. Before they become
`authorities’, they should first be converted to the Divine
Spirit-Breath that every heart, in its deepest need, knows
is the one and very Truth of life. And, then, they must
discipline the body and its actions with only love. If they
do all of this, then their hearts will also confess the
Truth, and that Truth will liberate them, and all of
humankind, from all the Truth
blind
beliefs and giant false cults that now provide
the pretentious worldly fortress of `official’ religions.
[Matthew 23:25-26]

“Damn the official knowers and political manipulators of
the all of humankind. They resemble the dead in their
phony cries of peace. None is
more peaceful than the already dead, since they hide no.
life at all. Therefore, by denying the Divine Spirit-Breath
of life in their own hearts, and minds, and bodies, they
think they have, in their control of self and all, achieved
an enviable state of rest. But they make peace in the world
only by crushing the beautiful faces of my tender lively
babies. [Matthew 23:27-28]

“Damn the materialistic religionists, philosophers,
merchants, and politicians. They give lip service to the
honor of all that was great in the ancient days. They make
harmless poetry out of all the words of the Divinely
here-born men and women of the SpiritBreath-and they, also,
pretend to stand boldly on the side of right, decrying the
injustices of unliberated society. They seem to say, `If we
were in power in the days of the Masters of Spiritual life,
we would not have denied them the right to rule.’ Bloody
bastards. I have not received one good word from them since
the day I was born. Who empowered them to make shit in the
house where I teach? They have inherited the same mind that
has always denied the Truth in this world. [Matthew
23:29-321

“Creeping sons of bitches. How do they plan to escape
from the future? I will be there to meet them, with an open
mouth and many teeth to judge
their state of mind. And I am never `peaceful’ while I live.
I will make a new sanctuary, a new Way of Truth, whose altar
and religion I am. I will make my own holy books, full of
the Divine Spirit-Breath itself. And I will send my own
heart children out to teach the
`authorities’ of this world. They will confront the
`authorities’ in the temples, the schools, the public
offices, the workplaces, and in every street of every city
in the world. My own heart-children will survive the ancient
slaughter-and all the slaughter yet to come. My
heart-children will not be found dead in the aisles of this
temple of world before they attain the sacrificial altar of
infinity. My heart-children, each and all, have me already
in the limbs of every part of Spirit-Breath. Their hearts
and minds and bodies overwhelm me with all their love. And
they will learn to speak with plain emotion, even in this
glib age of littlest selves and the small tongues of
benighted, cold, irrational, and unSpiritual thought.
[Matthew 23:33-361

“Humanity. Humanity. Assassin of the ancient Truth.
Betrayer of the Always True Divine. How often I have wished
to comfort you, ~ as a mother whispers to her angry child,
and makes the weeping cease. But you do not want the Truth.
You refuse to listen to the teaching that awakens the heart.
You oppress and scandalize every Divine-incarnate
Master-Lover of the world-and, thus, you also deny
yourselves the Spirit-Breathing Power of my own holy birth
and sacred company. [Matthew 23:371

“And, yet, I will not abandon you as you have abandoned
me. As long as a single particle of the human shape remains,
I will be standing here-until you embrace my feet and say,
`How radiant is the human body when it is surrendered into
selfless heart communion with
the Spirit-Breath of Truth’s Divinity. “

One time, when Jesus and the twelve were in Bethany,
there was a woman whose brother had just died. And the woman
came directly to Jesus-disregarding all the formalities
required by the disciples for the protection of Jesus’
sanctity. And the woman begged Jesus to give his
compassionate regard to her and her family.

The disciples immediately complained about the woman, and
criticized her for her presumptuousness, and forwardness,
and lack of respect. Nevertheless, the woman was bowing to
Jesus all the while-and weeping. So, instead of criticizing
and refusing the poor woman, Jesus put on a show of great
anger toward the disciples. And, after all of that, Jesus,
along with the twelve, went with the woman, to the garden
where the tomb of her brother was.

Immediately upon their arrival at the tomb, a loud voice
was heard coming from inside the tomb-and Jesus, going
directly toward the sound, rolled away the stone from the
formal entrance to the tomb. And, going in immediately, to
where the young man was-Jesus extended a hand-to-hand, and
stood the young man up.

Then, the young man looked intently at Jesus, and
expressed great devotion toward him. And the young man
begged Jesus to approve him as a devotee-so that he could be
properly and fully instructed by Jesus.

So, Jesus, greatly touched by the sincerity of the young
man, formally approved him as his devotee. And, after that,
everyone left the tomb-and they went to the great house of
the young man, who was very rich.

During the next six days, Jesus gave initial instructions
to his new devotee, and tested him, and examined his habits
of life, and, altogether, prepared the young man for
Spiritual initiation. Then, on the evening of the seventh
day, the young man went to Jesus’ quarters, as instructed.
By way of final preparation, the young man had taken a
ritual bath-and he had put a
simple linen garment around his
ceremonially washed and, as was the established custom,
otherwise unclothed body. And, after Jesus formally
whispered the basic instructions for Spirit-Breathing
practice into the ear of the young man, the young man
remained seated and secluded with Jesus throughout an
all-night vigil of silent contemplation. And, all the while
of the vigil, Jesus steadily Transmitted his Spiritual
Blessing-by heart, and eye to eye, and, by hand
upon
the head of the young man. And all of this
continued until the dawn of the morning star, that marked
the new beginning of the young man’s now forever day of
Spirit-life.

Thus, and by these Means, Jesus-as he always did with all
his true and closest followers-taught his new devotee the
Divine Secret of the Spiritual indwelling of the Divine
within the human body. [“Secret Mark”In the last days of
Jesus’ life, he went to Jerusalem. The twelve went with him,
as usual-but they felt unusually anxious. And some confessed
they were actually feeling afraid-even though they had no
idea why. Then, Jesus confided in the twelve what was about
to happen with him. [Mark 10:32]

Jesus said, “In Jerusalem, I will be taken prisoner by
the temple authorities. And they will turn me over to the
civil authorities, who will decide to execute me, under
civil law. And I will, immediately, be put to death-in the
manner of a common criminal. [Mark 10:33] Therefore,
as death is the final inheritance of all that lives, so,
also, I will prove it true of me. And, then, I will yet
exceed the condemnation death would make on me. And I will
prove it, too-for you will see me yet again, forever after I
am gone from sight and form of flesh. You will see me in my
Spiritually Ascended Form that I have always taught you to
see within you, toward
Above.

“Therefore, you should immediately return to Galilee,
when I am dead. And you will see me there, by Spirit-Breath
of Divine communion-when you look for me, by heart, Above
your head. And only that Divine communion you have learned
from me will prove to you the Truth of all I taught. What
you have once received from me in secret-and all the what
you have since practiced and received by every
Spirit-Breath-is all the freedom-Blessing I can give you in
this hurt of life that always goes to die alone.”

When Jesus spoke these final words of death and Truth,
his twelve disciples bowed to him, in silence, there-upon
the awful road that Jesus said they must all walk, to each
one’s sad Jerusalem.

And none of them that walked with him asked Jesus any
questions-any more. [Mark 10:34]

When Jesus and the twelve arrived in Jerusalem, they
immediately went into the great temple complex. [Mark
11:11]

And, suddenly, Jesus began running around in the outer
temple area-shouting at all the simple merchants there, -who
were carrying out their daily business of selling birds and
animals for people to offer as sacrifices in the temple
rituals. And the merchants were quite busy, indeed-because
it was the beginning of the season of the traditional sacred
and holy events of the Passover commemoration. And Jesus, in
a great hurry, like a madman, pushed over all the vending
tables, and knocked the vendors’ money onto the pavement,
and chased customers away from the vending area.

Everything became a skewered mess-unseemly on the temple
ground. And everyone was greatly anxious and disturbed. And
Jesus, there, offended even everyone-by loudly crude
behavior, that was not fit for sacred place and time. And
even all the twelve disciples did not know or tell why Jesus
was outraged. And even though they were forewarned of what
was terrible to think, the twelve disciples’ shock at this
loud thing within the holy place brought hot embarrassment
to each one’s face. [Mark 11:151

And, all the while of his whirlwind of fit, Jesus was
yelling out, “This is supposed to be a temple-a place of
prayer, not a place of business.”

And it all seemed weird, and shameful strange. It was as
if Jesus were trying-by an untold, and even, perhaps,
untellable, intention-to provoke the temple authorities to
put him under arrest.

And, in fact, that is what they did-for good reason, it
seemed, to everyone. [Mark 11:171

After Jesus was arrested by the temple authorities, he
was first interrogated by the officials there. [Mark
14:53) And, the next morning, Jesus was taken to the civil
authorities, for final arraignment-since the wholly and
obviously justifiable accusations
against him were, in fact, not related to the
violation of specifically religious laws. [Matthew
27:1-2[

And, so, Jesus was judged to be guilty of gross and
threatening misbehavior, and of attempting to cause a riot,
within the temple walls of Jerusalem.

And, in accordance with the normal civil proceedings of
the time, Jesus-who had been found guilty of common
criminality in a sacred and holy public place-was sentenced
to an immediate death, by crucifixion. [Mark 15:201

Jesus was immediately taken outside the city walls.

And Jesus was crucified-without delay.

And it was just as Jesus had “predicted”—or, in fact,
just as he had, for his own
reasons, planned. [Mark 15:24]

After some hours of suffering and bleeding on the cross
where he was suspended, the
gradually suffocating process of the crucifixion eventually
brought Jesus’ body to the limit of its endurance. And, so,
at last, Jesus’ breathing simply stopped. And Jesus of
Galilee was dead.

And so it was.

And so it is.

And so it must be said-and understood to be. [Mark
15:37]

After Jesus died, Joseph of Arimathea asked for
permission to take custody of Jesus’ body. Joseph of
Arimathea was, himself, a Spiritually initiated follower of
Jesus-but very secretly so. The secrecy was because of
Joseph’s public position as an important businessman, who
did business with everyone-including his own people and,
also, the civil authorities, and the foreign merchants, who
had occupied his native country.

The civil authorities agreed to Joseph’s request. And,
so, Joseph took Jesus’ body down from the cross, for burial.
[John 19:38]

Nicodemus-the one who had the nighttime secret
appointment with Jesus, during which Jesus first told him
about the necessity for a Spiritual re-birth-also
accompanied Joseph in all of this. [John
19:39]

So, Joseph and Nicodemus were the ones who buried
Jesus in a tomb that Joseph had
prepared for his own and family use. And Joseph and
Nicodemus-in a hasty plan, unanticipated by them, and,
therefore, not known to the twelve disciples, or to anyone
else among the Galilean followers of Jesus-buried the body
of Jesus privately, in the fully traditional manner.

Joseph and Nicodemus buried Jesus secretly because they
had the money and the means. They, unlike the
country-followers from Galilee, were among the wealthy and
powerful insiders of Jerusalem. And, anyway, all the twelve,
and all the other more intimate followers of Jesus, had
immediately left for Galilee-which was home and safety, for
them-as soon as they knew Jesus was dead. And, of course,
that was what Jesus had told them to do. And, so, they did
it-knowing, anyway, they had no power to obtain the rights
to Jesus’ body from the civil authorities at Jerusalem.

And, thus-out of respect for their Spiritual Master,
Jesus of Galilee Joseph of Arimathea and his friend,
Nicodemus, took care of all the formalities and sacred
obligations relative to Jesus’ entombment and eventual
encasement of bones.

And they did this because no one else was there to do
it.

And they did it all in order to protect Jesus’ holy and
sacred body from all further disturbance, dishonor, and
desecration. [John 19:40]

When the officially appointed guards returned, from
Jesus’ crucifixion site, to inside the walls of Jerusalem,
they formally reported everything exactly as it had
happened. [Matthew 28:11] They reported, officially,
that two wealthy followers of Jesus came, at the approach of
nightfall, and removed Jesus’ body from the cross, and took
Jesus’ body away, for burial in an undisclosed location.
[Matthew 28:13]

The simple factual report of the officially appointed
guards was known, as a simple fact, among the functionaries
of the occupying regime-although, to the few who had any
reason to know about the matter at all, there was no
extraordinary importance to any of these events. After all,
to them, Jesus was merely an ordinary criminal, who chose to
make a public disturbance-and, therefore, as was strictly
commonplace in that day and age, the rather anonymous
criminal was executed, without delay. [Matthew
28:15]

The original and principal tradition of John the
Water-Baptizer and Jesus the Spirit-Baptizer is an esoteric
Spiritual and mystical tradition of Divine communion.

John the Water-Baptizer was, in fact, the Spiritual
Master and Spirit-Baptizer of Jesus of Galilee. Thus, and by
Means of the Spiritual Baptism Given to him by John the
Water-Baptizer, Jesus of Galilee experienced the absorptive
mystical and Spiritual developments of Divine Sainthood.
And, in due course, Jesus also became a Spirit-Baptizer, or
Spiritual Master.

Within the inner, or esoteric, circle of his Spiritually
initiated devotees, Jesus of Galilee taught the ancient and
always continuing esoteric Way of Spiritual devotion to the
Spirit-Baptizing Master, and the esoteric method of bodily
communion with the Divine Spirit-Breath, and the process of
inward Spiritual Ascent to the Divine domain-or the unitary
Divine state, beyond the visibility of all the visibles-via
the mystically interiorized perception of the cosmically
Ascended “Divine Morning Star”.

After the death, and esoterically presumed Spiritual
Ascent, of Jesus of Galilee, his “inner circle” of
Spiritually initiated devotees continued to promote and grow
the mystical tradition of their Spirit-based school-but,
because of the difficult circumstances of their time, the
original esoteric sect had to become more and more
secretive. Indeed, eventually, the esoteric sect associated
with John the Water-Baptizer and Jesus the Spirit-Baptizer
disappeared from the view of history, under the pressure of
the exoteric, or conventionally and merely socially and
politically oriented-rather than

Spiritually and mystically oriented-sects that developed
around the otherwise developing
legends and myths of the lifetime public teaching and
healing activities of Jesus of Galilee.

The original esoteric school of the Spiritual initiates
of Jesus of Galilee was associated with practices of
Spiritually invocatory prayer and inwardly absorptive
mystical Ascent. They especially sought Divine absorption
via the internally perceptible White Five
Pointed
Star within and Above the body and the mind.
And, especially after the death of Jesus of Galilee-and in
accordance with esoteric instructions communicated by Jesus
during his lifetime the inwardly
perceptible White Five-Pointed Star was interpreted to be
the true Ascended “body” of Jesus himself. And, over time,
the Spiritual practitioners within the esoteric school begun
by John the Water-Baptizer and Jesus the Spirit-Baptizer
developed the same full range of psycho-physically
experienced phenomena of inner Spiritual perception that are
otherwise universally reported in all the esoteric Spiritual
traditions of humankind.

Speaking in the esoteric language of the school of John
the Water-Baptizer and Jesus the Spirit-Baptizer:

The potential subtle inner experience of the red light of
Spiritual inner vision is associated with the gross body of
the human being-and the Spiritually-infused blood of the
incarnation body of Jesus of
Galilee.

The golden yellow light of Spiritual inner vision is
associated with the universal Spirit-Energy–or the Divine
Spirit-Breath, or the Holy Spirit-that pervades the entire
cosmic domain.

The soft-white light of inner Spiritual vision is
associated with the human mind-which, when founded on true
heart-purity, can be said to,be a reflection of the Divine
Source-Light, which is forever infinitely Above the body,
the mind, and the world.

The black light of inner Spiritual vision is symbolized
by the bodily crucifixion and death of Jesus of Galilee-and
it is otherwise associated with the right life-sacrifice, or
the true moral, devotional, and Spiritual discipline, of the
body, and the emotions, and the mind of the rightly
practicing human being, or the Spiritual mystic’s necessary
ordeal of passing beyond all sensory and mental contents and
consolations.

The blue light of inner Spiritual vision is the
all-birthing Divine Light Above. It is the Divine
Womb-Light, from which the world and every being forms and
moves to living process here. And that blue light is also
thought, by some, to be here-symbolized, in human scale, by
Mary-the woman who, according to tradition, is said to have
been the human mother of Jesus of Galilee.

The inner Spiritual vision of the White Five-Pointed Star
is the most Ascended Spiritual vision of inner light – also
symbolized by the natural and everyday morning star that was
awaited during the overnight vigil associated with the
esoteric initiation-ritual practiced in the original
Spiritual tradition of Jesus of Galilee. And the White
Five-Pointed Star symbolized as the Ascended Spiritual Body
of Jesus of Galilee – is thus affirmed to be Indivisibly One
with the True Divine, which is infinitely Above, and which
is affirmed to be eternally Non-separate from the symbolic
interior vision of the Star Body
of the Ascended Jesus of Galilee.

Thus, the White Five-Pointed Star of Jesus of Galilee was
mystically asserted, by his original “inner circle” of
devotees, to be radiantly and always pervading the entire
cosmic domain, in cosmic association with the
all-Illuminating combination of both the Blue Womb-Light and
the Golden Yellow Breath-Light of the cosmically-evident
Spiritual Divine.

Through bodily-enacted Spiritual communion with the
interior “Single Light of the world”, the devotees of John
the Water-Baptizer and Jesus the Spirit-Baptizer were “born
to here from Above”-and, thus
Blessed, they “worshipped the Divine as Indivisible Truth,
by Means of Spirit-Breath”.
