Matthew 14:15-20 informs us that the Apostles went to Jesus and instructed Him the massive crowd which adopted Him have been hungry: they’d no meals with them to eat. The Apostles wished to ship them to the cities and villages to purchase meals (Luke 9:12). The Apostles knowledgeable Jesus boy there had 5 barley loaves and two Fish however which was not sufficient. Jesus instructed the gang to take a seat down on the grass and to deliver the loaves and fishes to Him. After blessing them He instructed the Apostles to distribute the meals to the gang. In spite of everything had eaten the Apostles collected the left-over’s which stuffed twelve baskets. This principally, as we all know, is the gist of what’s one the Bible’s biggest however least understood allegorical content material.
To derive any significant understanding from this story it is necessary to learn it non-literally, for, to learn it actually, in my opinion, affords no sensible profit in any respect. Additionally, studying it as making use of to our particular person self quite than to a crowd of individuals in some area, as portrayed within the scripture, will definitely deepen growth of consciousness thereby permitting for consciousness-based data assimilation.
Allow us to begin this esoteric reflection into the loaves and fish. The Apostles, on this case, are the innately current non secular elements, or divine characters, of the awakening soul – the elements completely dedicated to the soul’s maturation course of into Christ consciousness, therefore they’re known as followers of Christ inside; typically known as the twelve tribes of Israel, they’re the twelve baskets which grow to be spiritually stuffed.
The phrase “crowd” pops up within the Bible repeatedly. In Mark 5:25-30 a girl (symbolizing a soul) wished to see Jesus available in the market place (the thoughts) and was prevented by the gang – the crowded ideas milling round in our head blocking non secular gentle. She raised herself above the gang – entered meditation — thereby touching His cloak, the love nature of the soul. Once more, in Luke 19:three Zacchaeus, a tax collector — one working out of decrease self, a magnet for stress and perpetuator of ignorance, climbed a sycamore tree — transcended his/her ideas – thereby expertise the non secular Christ presence inside. Jesus mentioned to Zacchaeus: Luke 19:5: hurry down Zacchaeus for I have to keep in your own home right now – home that means dwell inside our coronary heart as Presence. On this verse “crowd” is once more referring to compulsive thought exercise in our head which clouds over our true non secular nature, thus taking the thoughts out of current second consciousness thereby compelling it to stay out of unconscious thought applications and, in doing so, perpetuating non secular ignorance. Due to this fact, “crowd” on this occasion symbolizes the multitude of ideas which swirl round within the head on an hourly foundation that are to be calmed, by the expression sitting on the grass – a pasture proving abundance of peace of thoughts.
Subsequent we’re instructed a younger boy had 5 barley loaves and two fish with him. The younger boy right here symbolizes the non mature or non woke up side of the soul, one not but mature in Christ consciousness.
What really do these 5 loaves imply? Are they bakery bread loaves? No, by no means, the 5 loaves as talked about are the 5 senses of their non purified state. For this reason they’re known as barley loaves, for barley was thought of on the time to be a really low type of meals nourishment. The loaves symbolize the potential of experiencing Life purely or divinely by offering plentiful non secular nourishment or Christ Presence into our coronary heart and thoughts.
What do the 2 fish symbolize? Are they salmon, trout or pike? Nicely, no, they are not fish that we usually catch within the sea or a lake. The fish image, I consider, represents two arching strains forming the form of a watch <>. These two fish then symbolize the left/proper mind hemispheres, and, extra particularly, the pineal and pituitary glands which permit for these two hemispheres turning into one All-seeing consciousness or, the attention of the soul. Vitally they include the Religious Concept or Best of the entire cosmic universe or divine plan which turns into birthed into consciousness. They want awakening by way of pure means comparable to when Kundalini vitality rises upward from the bottom of the backbone. These two glands are the distributer mechanisms by way of which non secular consciousness and bliss infuses into our hearts and minds, when eternality turns into actuality inside consciousness. This consciousness grows to function capability of divine understanding: perceptibility by way of heightened consciousness versus peculiar human discrimination by the use of the unstable mind. On this latter mode, our private world quantities to compilations of decrease ego mind-sets, a life devoid of mature non secular consciousness (therefore the boy having solely barley loaves). On this undeveloped state our hearts and minds are denied direct Christ Presence inside, full stature of life, therefore private struggling.
Pure consciousness is Final everlasting actuality – “at all times was and at all times might be” Presence — and obtainable for every of us by way of non secular awakening. For this reason Jesus did not ship the folks away to purchase nourishment available in the market place to get enlightenment elsewhere. As a substitute, he instructed them to take a seat down – to meditate. John 6:three places it: Jesus went up a hill and sat down with the Apostles. Right here Jesus (divine interior steering) is informing us to enter into meditation thereby know His love nature instantly by the use of purification of the 5 senses and glandular/chakras system alongside the backbone. For this reason in Luke 9:13 Jesus mentioned to the Apostles: you yourselves give them one thing to eat, “them” that means your entire non secular mechanisms – thoughts, physique spirit — which require therapeutic from the get-go of our lives, for we’re born with authentic conditioning, the carry-over from earlier incarnations.
By now we have now to just accept that, this story, like so many biblical tales, didn’t really occur they’re parables, allegorical content material to make philosophical factors. So, how will we virtually deliver our 5 loaves and two fish to Him? By meditation, that is how, as certified once more in Luke 9:16: Jesus took the 5 loaves and two fish, regarded as much as heaven, thanked God for them, broke them and gave them to the disciples to distribute to the folks – folks being the thought processes, and, broke them, that means launch of the non secular nectar or bliss into consciousness. This then is the place the so-called multiplication of the loaves and fish are available. The multiplication is when our restricted human senses are raised, purified to serve abundantly of divine nature; in different phrases, the extra love and divine nature we give away, the extra of such we obtain – the interior reward is instantaneous – as we sew so lets reap in consciousness the character of God, unconditional love.
If I could give an instance of how we deliver our loaves and fish to Him. Observe the Tortoise. When the Tortoise desires to grow to be non seen it withdraws all limbs inwards into its shell – bodily elements appear non-existent, dissolved. Equally, after we meditate, our 5 senses grow to be withdrawn from their object of expertise, surrendered from all sense of bodily data. Put up meditation our senses then present a completely completely different expertise by the truth that they’ve been healed, rejuvenated, remodeled to understand spiritually. Via this common follow our senses then operate to interpret by way of Christ nature.
The pivotal phrases of this biblical instruction are: “deliver them to Him”. This then is the method whereby our senses grow to be reconnected into their embryonic state thereby to operate cosmically, potential of embracing the All. When, by way of growth of consciousness, we start to see and perceive purely — determine by way of in-formed consciousness. The distinction thus between allegory tales and actuality turns into startling within the type of, clear understanding emergence that there’s a greater divine goal behind this apparent phenomenal existence. That by soul awakening eternality nature turns into a aware affair, for, right here, the need of God has discovered a appropriate nature by way of which to specific — when our private vibration issues for the larger good of this planet and your entire cosmos. The Nobler goal of our life is in play.
Matthew 6:6 reminds us that, after we pray that we go to our room. This room, in fact, is not our bed room, attic or any bodily house. No, quite we individually go to the fairly house or sanctuary we have created in our thoughts; the non secular temple which our personal interior Christ rebuilds for the Bread of Life to be ever at hand each day for assimilation, thereby nourish our reworking consciousness into His nature.
This going into our thoughts, our temple, is bringing the senses and whole nervous system to Him. That is soul purification: shutting the door to sensory and emotional expertise thus halting the incessant psychological exercise which is controlling our life each day by the use of unbroken thought cycles within the mind. Right here in meditation we’re not in search of something, listening for phrases of knowledge or uttering our desires and must Him. Slightly, we’re tuning into the transcendental everlasting Silence which alone cleanses and uplifts peculiar human consciousness into Christ consciousness – interrupting the cycle of mechanically recurring emotive thought patterns. Perception in God at this level is just not a lot then an mind determination, quite a coming upon, for, Perception is our pure divine actuality, accessed by the use of expanded consciousness. Getting into into transcendental silence — heightened consciousness — awakens potential of clairvoyance, clairsentience and clairaudience: potential of clear visioning, clear feeling and soul listening to: intuitiveness which makes the summary concrete, comparable to making transcendental silence a dynamic actuality inside. By transcendental silence is supposed the distinction between the uneven ocean floor and the calm silence of the underside, when perceptions past the ocean mattress open unto our psyche and senses. The skilled distinction inside is just like the crash of a mega symphonic cymbal and the gentle touching collectively of a butterfly’s wings.
Transcendental silence thus serves as capability of Revelation after we start seeing Bible tales as occasions which happen inside consciousness: when our consciousness outgrows the necessity for parable tales; realization that it is time for maturing past the put in Santa Clause paradigms.
As soon as commenced upon, this earth journey of discovering Christ inside our personal consciousness involves fruition by pure course of. For, as soon as that aware determination of surrendering is made — just like the Tortoise — discovering and understanding Him turns into computerized no matter faith or none. With out this strategy of bringing the 5 senses to Him we’re merely recycling non secular ignorance, and, by way of such ignorance, defective understanding grows and spreads like an overwhelming contamination, a debilitating weed — or swaddling garments — round our soul. The following struggling thus is extended as a form of blind martyr-like religion. Ignorance of divine nature is what’s deemed struggling. In different phrases, however the truth that we’re born, because the Bible places it, pure man/lady then non secular, its deemed accepted struggling to knowingly stay by way of the decrease conditioned senses after we’re supplied with the technique of transmuting this Maya, this ignorance jail and its binding affect. In lots of instances, by way of imaginary worry of God turning into indignant, or our non secular mates turning into hostile towards us, we stay loyal to non secular dogmas and shallow perception programs that are clearly non soul serving. On this case, enforced literal scripture interpretation could be a main reason for procrastination to interior change and consciousness transformation. Thus it is vital to see biblical teachings as regarding the human thoughts and all its complexities and the way overcoming it spiritually and mastering that is doable.
In conclusion, it is value recalling the protocol of the psychological/nervous system. The 5 senses are obligation sure to serve the thoughts with pleasurable experiences of any nature. On this context, the non-spiritually woke up thoughts, senses and mind don’t possess capability of pure discrimination. The aware thoughts thinks however in the end it is the mind which decides. Due to this fact, making the mind resolute is how we take care of the questioning thoughts looking for a way repair. Bringing the senses to Him, to Transcendental Silence, achieves this miracle of remodeling peculiar sensory notion into pure multisensory capability: lets say water into wine, decrease nature into pure spirit.
Private stress is related to virtually 98% of all sickness on this planet right now, thus making its elimination from our lives globally the only primary precedence. Power stress is what maintains sub-consciousness or struggling in our lives. To this finish, a meditation, Yoga or a mind-centring program of our selection reduces secretion of the stress hormone Cortisol from the adrenal glands and will increase launch of serotonin – the glad hormone — from the pineal gland within the centre of the mind between the eyebrows; all superb causes certainly why Jesus instructs every of us to deliver our loaves and fish to Him, to meditate each day. Meditation in time results in integration of the aware and unconscious elements of our deeper thoughts thereby awaken out of compulsive struggling. By withdrawing from sensory expertise and coming into into utter silence inside in the course of our meditation, we’re fulfilling the above loaves and fish scripture completely.
