In The Beginning….

א  בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ.

Transliterated: Bereshit bara Elohim et hashamayim ve’et ha’aretz.

(In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth)

This is the original text from  Hebrew of Genesis 1:1.It consists of 7 words and 28 letters which cross references with Mrs Eddy´s mathematical principle of 7, 4.

to recap:

As she discovered her system more, the Bible became prominent as she discovered the Science and expanded on its idea. No doubt she was searching for Biblical links to her system from the beginning and also noting people were not ready to hear “science”.

It was John Doorly, ex president of the Mother Church, some decades later who noticed that she had written the 7 synonyms in a different order 3 times to explain 3 points and discovered that it matched three periods of Biblical history with the textbook itself representing the 4th period. He then discovered that using her key to the Scriptures, the Bible was a book of spiritual laws written about the demonstration of the 7 synonyms. Thus her system was shown in the mathematical numbers 7 and 4.

The Hebrews recognised the importance of these great numbers, the Torah has the Bereishit. (Genesis 1:1) being 7 words and 28 letters in original Hebrew and regarded as “God”s signature.

In Hebrew, each letter possesses a numerical value, working with this system is called Gematria and is used to explore the relationship between words and ideas.

Principled Living

Yesterday I got a call from a potential student who was interested in learning English. He introduced himself as “The Buddha” followed by his full name. I initially thought it was a hoax until I realised he was calling from Nepal and the title “The Buddha” is one bestowed upon their Priests and Monks by ecclesiastical authority.

It got me thinking about how much our lives would be changed if we let The Christ consciousness in our life shine through and like Jesus we could be known for the Christ in our lives. If the Christ is the willingness to submit and reconcile to the Divine  Mind, then the Anti Christ is our refusal to accept that wider state of consciousness. The Christ is not something we see only in human form, Abraham saw The Christ in the mythical symbol Melchizedek as the incorporeal Christ. Moses also had a glimpse of The Christ in the “Spiritual Rock” described by Paul in l Corinthians. Simon also became known as”The rock” when he caught a glimpse of Divinity.

The Christ identity is what links us back to Christianity, even the name itself implies God’s image and likeness being carried in the name. What would it be like if we were Joseph Christ, Maryanne Christ? Known for our higher sense of living. By reconciling and “at oneing” ourselves back to the wholeness of Spirit.  To make ourselves the heirs of God is our birthright.

The higher sense, the Christ is not shown in power given by ecclesiatical authorities, so that we can call ourselves, Father, Buddha or Mother in the case of Nuns or Priests.  Its about how we do things without practicing counterfeit unprincipled living.

Following on from my post yesterday, these terms raise a lot of fear and pre concieved ideas in people about Jesus Judgement, fear and hell. But yet how else can we define the fathomless force of good? How would we define Electricity if its name had to be changed? What new name would we give it?


A strain upon a lyre harp #poem #christian

A strain upon a lyre harp
sweeps a sound so low
That only those who gather round
Can catch its sweetness flow,

A strain which speaks of suffering
A woman’s heart is torn
As she watches martyrdom
For her son she mourns

A strain of sadness at the tomb
She searches for her dead
An angel pointing to the skies
Which dawns a crimson red

A strain upon twelve tender hearts
Who sit in upper rooms
And still the strain plays out its tune
From sadness of the tomb

A strain upon a sepelchre
A white robed body lay
The saviour rises, then appears
The rock is rolled away

A strain it sweeps his Mother’s heart
With gladness, faith and joy
And plays its tune eternally
For all who will enjoy

The strain is never ending
Through time and space it plays
The bloodied fingers of our saints
Keep it playing today.
