The Secret Teachings of Christ
We are now at the summit, standing before a tree that seems iridescent, glowing with a fire that does not consume it. We have removed our shoes, for we stand upon holy ground. From this pinnacle we can look behind us to see all that brought us to this moment. We can see the evolutionary history of man and the universe. Within that history ‘we’ (with eyes to see) can see the hand of God form man from clay. We see Him make a covenant with Abraham, who was willing to sacrifice his son Isaac to God if God so willed. We see God give an early, less perfect understanding of God’s will to Moses, conformed to match what was spiritually attainable by the intellectual, moral, and spiritual development of the people of that time. Then, after many generations of spiritual evolutionary development the time came when God saw man fit to receive ‘the Truth, the Light, and the Way’, and in a mystery beyond our understanding at this time He sent his ‘Son’ to be born of a woman named Mary, some two thousand years ago now. Of the life he lived and the whole of what he taught we but know in part, but the testimony of many witnesses has been passed down to us largely intact and reliable unto this day, and based upon the ‘proofs’ cited earlier, it is sufficient for our understanding. ‘We’ know His mission was His message of the Truth of the Love of God. For daring to spread the Truth He was killed. Many witnesses say that in three days they encountered Him again, alive; at the open tomb, on the road to Emmaus, in the upper room. If you believe you have any reason to doubt the possibility that these events could actually have taken place as recorded, then you have missed something along the way. If you believe the miracle that was, is, and shall be ‘Christ’ and His ‘extra-natural’ ‘extra-dimensional’ message, then look again upon this holy tree, and see the secret within. Like the holographic model of the Cosmos of Bohm and Pribram, look deep ‘into’ the tree, into the microcosm of this tree, ancient and holy, into this fractal holograph of the universe. What do you see? Is it ‘just a tree’? Or do you see something more? Are you just a temporally self-contained ‘mechanical’ organism that will dissipate into ‘nothing’ upon ‘mechanical’ failure or are you a spirit eternal that will continue to exist when the ‘mechanism’ is gone in a extra- dimensional state of being not normally detectable by human sense organs, but which is slowly being ‘discovered’ (unknowingly and unwillingly) by our scientific ‘eyes’? Do you ‘see’ it? Like a holograph viewed from different angles…Do you see it? Do you recognize it? This is the tree! It’s the same tree that bore the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. It’s the same tree Noah cut to build the Ark. It’s the same tree from which Joseph carved Christ’s cradle and on this same tree was He crucified. And on the same tree I write these words. For this tree along with all ‘things’ temporally perceivable exists simultaneously on both sides of the dimensional veil, in this empirical world and in the world of "Ideal Forms" of Plato, formed from the "Archetypes" and "Collective Consciousness" of Jung, a part of the "Oneness of Being" first purposed by mystics long ago and now re-adopted by ‘string’/ M-theorists and the ‘non-local’ holographic field/matrix model of Bohm and Pribram. This Oneness is the innermost secret within the Teachings of Christ and is perhaps best presented at the beginning of the book of John; “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God, and the Word was with God”. This Gnostic statement expresses the extra dimensional Truth also represented in the idea of the ‘Trinity’ – the Oneness of God, the born of flesh Christ, and the Holy Spirit “God ‘sent’…” to man. This simultaneous underlying Oneness and temporal differentiation of our existence is the multi-dimensional foundation from which all manifestations of extra-natural phenomena arise, including the ‘miracle’ of Christ and the ‘miracles’ of Christ. It is the source/effective force behind Christ’s ‘key’ statement, “What you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven…”, and, speaking of ‘normal’ men concerning the power to perform ‘miracles’, he stated that “greater (miracles) than these (miracles I have done) will you do”. Do you now see the significance of the tree? It is the Tree of Life itself out of which all life and life-force, from the very beginning, has grown. And of the fruit that grows upon it, Love, is the sweetest and the ripest.
Do you not see the tree is yourself as well? All branches of life grow from the same trunk, one organism rooted in the same soil on a tiny speck of stardust called Earth. Thusly He taught us to pray, “Our Father…”. God is our common Father, the Earth our common Mother, and all life is their children, our Brothers. Christ taught this vision of the Truth, to, “Love thy neighbor as thyself”, and to, “Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, thy strength, and thy mind". He did so because it is ‘the Truth’, beyond temporal appearances, at the center of our being; the Absolute Relativity of Man. He did so to show us the Way to the perfection of our spirits.
In the Sermon on the Mount, found in Matthew, Christ commands us to, “Be ye therefore perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect”. That doesn’t mean He expects us all to be perfect and sinless. It means He expects us to try our best, to have the ‘highest aspirations’, for ourselves, and to do all we can to create a world ‘fit’ for His return. Essentially everything we need to know to formulate those ‘aspirations’ is found in that one Sermon on the Mount. It is the greatest treasure on Earth, direct from Heaven. Know it ‘by heart’ – let it’s Truth fill your heart with the divine purpose of the Will of God for your life, whatever it may be. See that tree before you, touch it, eat its fruit, and know God. It is the burning bush that spoke to Moses, the tree of knowledge in the Garden, and the cross on which Christ died. Beyond appearances, we must learn to ‘see’ the Secret Teachings of Christ, which in as much as ‘our time’ may know, are secrets no more.
As science now acquiesces and knows, grudgingly, that the universe of which Christ taught, consisting of a extra-dimensional, non-local, singularity we call God, is the universe, and that consciousness is an integral part of that whole, so we must see this tree for what it truly is, a temporally differentiated holographic manifestation of a particular aspect or [set of ‘trigonomic’ vectors] perspective of the underlying unified field (which is God). For ultimately there can only be One Truth.
That Truth, revealed and exemplified by Christ stands before you. It is one. It is God. For myself, and I hope for you, there is nothing more essential, more exigent, and more relevant than this knowledge. In this eternal moment, regardless of the petty profaneness of the world in which we live, regardless of the trials and hardships we may face, regardless of what we don’t know until the fullness of time, these things we do know.
"Truth is God is Love is Light is Why is How is You.
So let the Light of Love of God of Truth return you to yourself." [©1978 TTW]
We exist in a multi-dimensional state of Absolute Relativity, as holographic microcosms of God (made “in His image”). We hold “the Key” to a better world here and beyond, and the transformation begins, with us. “You must lose your life to save it”. Do you now understand the words of Christ? I pray it so, and that you have learned when ‘surrender’ is ‘victory’ – “Love Thy Enemy” – so different from “the traditions (“family values”) of men”. This “Love”, so different than the lusts and attachments of men, secret from the ways of a world that cares not to know of it, is the final ultimate secret, without which, all else is meaningless. “If you have not Love…”, then nothing else matters. In the perfection of the spirit this ‘higher Love’ is the highest Truth, the ripest fruit on the Tree of Life, alone atop the mountain, waiting to be ‘discovered’…You know the way…
