A Fated Meeting, Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

lon milo duquette

The Chicken Qabalah was not the first book I had read on the subject.  Still when I read it it spoke to me in a unique voice.  At that time I was communing with Yeshivel who was teaching me the Sephyr Yeshivel.  Yeshivel is a curious entity, his soul energy is that of Jesus and Shiva but it is not all of Shiva’s energy and it is not the Jesus that people think existed.  He is very gentle and very soft spoken.  As I would read he would speak to me in my thoughts and emotions.

I remember reading the explanation of how Ain sof poured itself into Chockmah first and then it flowed into Binah.  Yeshivel had already taught me that Godself had made the universe by separating godself in the form of No Thingness into matter and energy simultaneously, so I immediately, violently, reacted.

Maybe Twenty years later I found myself living in Aliso Viejo California.  I started getting into painting and one of my first paintings was created with the intention that I would give it to a Chassidic Rabbi to explain for him a mystery that he didn’t understand.  I impregnated the painting with that intention.  At that time I had no idea who the rabbi might be.

About seven years later I started having some bizarre experiences, spiritual experiences.  It started around the 4th of july 2013.  My soul energy was being activated by my higher self for the work I was preparing to do.  I was receiving my calling.  I was attempting to create a spiritual revival a spiritual revolution.  Much like Jesus, my trials were now at hand.

A girl that I had worked with at Whole Foods found out some of the stuff that I was interested in and told me that her step father knew some stuff about that.  I met him and came to find out he was personal friends of Lon Milo Duquette, who lived near by and who had a little class every Monday at his house as he had been doing for years.  At our first meeting I brought him the painting having realized that things had come full circle. I also brought my copy of the Chicken Qabalah which he signed for me.

I attended that class for several months as we studied the occult literature of Aleister Crowley and the implications of his work.  Lon was of high rank in the O.T.O. I repeatedly pointed out the allusions to Hindu Philosophy that for some reason Crowley had mostly left out of the explanations but which were recurring themes in his visionary poetry.  I became worried that my presence was causing a disturbance with some of Lon’s other students whom he had known for a longer time.  I started coming less frequently.

At the last few meetings Lon started teaching us about his true love.  Enochian Vision magick, of which Lon is probably the foremost expert in the world.

Lon was very proud of these tablets that he had made years before and he happily trotted them out.  We eventually did some scrying in the Enochian Planes.  The first one was rather uneventful for me.  I started to have some experiences like I was going into trance and then there was silence, and then a voice spoke to me, “they are afraid of you because of who you are.”  Constance found this very, very interesting.

The next heaven that we scryed was Air of Air. That one was a lot more eventful.  I saw an image of swords crossed up and down, and then a sword in a hand raised that was in a stained glass window.  This vision occurred right after the government shut down and before I was asked to decode the symbolism of the dove attack of pope Francis.

Click here for my prediction as to whether this would be a year of peace or not.

What it meant to me was that the heavens were embroiled in a battle.  In which no compromise was possible because they were completely at odds with one another.  This was a big, serious, deal.  An astral event.  And it needed a veritable Alexander to cut the Gordion knot.  As a High Level Astral Initiate, I have never sworn a vow to any Secret Society and I come upon my knowledge through the power of my own abilities and those spiritual agencies and entities that aid me.  So nobody had the right to punish me for giving away secrets that I came upon with my own psychic abilities.

Frensham . March 2011 162

At this point it had become very obvious to me that I was having an adverse affect on the other people attending Lon’s meetings.  I stopped coming all together but I would send an emissary to bring gifts for Lon.  I felt that his students weren’t properly appreciating him as the guru he rightly was.  Most of them were interested in him doing stuff for them and trying to increase their own prestige by knowing him.  I wanted to set a good example for how one was supposed to treat a guru.  Also I was at a point where I could attend his classes in spirit without physically being present and I needed to hear myself think.  I was entering a spiritual phase known as the Curse of the Magus. I was listening to the Astral planes and I wasn’t liking what I was hearing.  I needed to be completely focused.

I had heard that Lon was starting a series of trips to China to promote his writings.  There was a plane that had mysteriously  disappeared in that area everybody was speculating where it was and what had happened to it.  I became very concerned sensing a convergence in possible time lines.  I decided to go to one of Lon’s meetings.  He was very surprised to see me as was Constance.  The topic of the missing airliner came up lightly and we speculated on what had happened to it.  I through out a response as a test.  Lon nodded his head that was a possibility.  I told him, “Don’t say that.”  We were throwing the I Ching to see what would happen on Lon’s trip.  With maybe 15 people in the class the same answers came up over and over again.  Lon would have to be very careful and he might get stuck in China for the rest of his life.  It was not a good reading.

Lon did return without event and he offered this explanation.  The people were very concerned about the missing Jet, and the topic came up almost immediately, he had remembered the conversation that we had and he didn’t speculate on what had happened to the air craft, which was completely out of character for him and against his nature, but he was very conscious and prepared and with a perfect poker face, he said he thought it was in the water.

At a later time Lon wanted to appreciate his students by doing readings on them.  I wasn’t physically present but my student at the time was so he did one for me in spirit.  Lon was astounded, he had never seen that many face cards in a single reading.  I knew the reading was legit because when I get an authentic reading this card always shows up to symbolize me.

Lon had a premonition before the last card came up.  He said, “this better not be the card I think it is.”  and then he said, “Oh, my God!”

Origins of Western Philosophy, Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

A huge help in putting together my theories was the work of Okko Behrends.  What I do is I look for the movement of ideas, words, philosophies, processes, practices (praxis) from one culture to another over time.  These create rhetorical tautologies or identical patterns.  Some cultures adopt and keep those patterns because of an affinity and others do not.

Frankly I think that the Augur’s of Pre-Greek Minoan cult were originally from India and in India I believe they were called the Aghori.

The Aghori (Sanskrit: अघोरaghōra)[2] are asceticShaivasadhus.

The Aghori in Shaivism.

The Aghori are known to engage in post-mortem rituals. They often dwell in charnel grounds, have been witnessed smearing cremationashes on their bodies, and have been known to use bones from human corpses for crafting skull bowls (which Shiva and other Hindu deities are often iconically depicted holding or using) and jewelry. Due to their practices that are contradictory to orthodox Hinduism, they are generally opposed.[3][4]

Many Aghori gurus command great reverence from rural populations as they are supposed to possess healing powers gained through their intensely eremitic rites and practices of renunciation and tápasya. They are also known to meditate and perform worship in haunted houses.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aghori

8 minutes in Behrend’s defines Auctoritatus as a form of authority not based on force but based on reason, what I refer to as Sapiential Authority.

In ancient Rome, Auctoritas referred to the general level of prestige a person had in Roman society, and, as a consequence, his clout, influence, and ability to rally support around his will. Auctoritas was not merely political, however; it had a numinous content and symbolized the mysterious “power of command” of heroic Roman figures.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auctoritas#Auctoritas_principis

28When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.  Matthew 7

cicero

44 minutes okko quotes cicero

Auctoritas is determined by it’s good results and it’s success and by the merit of reason.  The High priest of the Augure’s didn’t create the law, he didn’t manufacture it, he expounded the law that already existed in the universe the Law that governed success.  They were readers of omens, signs, and portents.

The augur was a priest and official in the classical world, especially ancient Rome and Etruria. His main role was the practice of augury, interpreting the will of the gods by studying the flight of birds: whether they are flying in groups or alone, what noises they make as they fly, direction of flight and what kind of birds they are. This was known as “taking the auspices.” The ceremony and function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society—public or private—including matters of war, commerce, and religion.

The Roman historian Livy stresses the importance of the augurs: “Who does not know that this city was founded only after taking the auspices, that everything in war and in peace, at home and abroad, was done only after taking the auspices?”[1]  

augur

It was also antithetical to tyranny. At 14 minutes tyranny = kingship.  The Augur, much like the president is supposed to be, (I am glaring at you Obama) is not above the law, they are also under the law.  This isn’t from Okko Behrends, but notice how to Remus was not chosen as the first king of Rome because he lived on Aventine hill which was full of “inauspicious birds”.  The reason the birds were present was because Aventine hill was used for the disposal of garbage and dead bodies, remember if you will that the Aghori also live in grave yards.

Roman augurs were part of a collegium of priests who shared the duties and responsibilities of the position. At the foundation of the Republic in 510 BC, the patricians held sole claim to this office.

Augury sought the divine will regarding any proposed course of action which might affect Rome’s pax, fortuna and salus (peace, good fortune and wellbeing).[2] Political, military and civil actions were sanctioned by augury, historically performed by priests of the college of augurs and by haruspices on behalf of senior magistrates.

According to Cicero, the auctoritas of ius augurum included the right to adjourn and overturn the process of law: consular election could be – and was – rendered invalid by inaugural error. For Cicero, this made the augur the most powerful authority in the Republic.

In ancient Rome the auguria were considered to be in equilibrium with the sacra (“sacred things” or “rites”) and were not the only way by which the gods made their will known. The augures publici (public augurs) concerned themselves only with matters related to the state.

The jus augurale (augural law) was rigorously secret, therefore very little about the technical aspects of ceremonies and rituals has been recorded.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augur

Shiva Shakti - Maha Shivratri

If you examine the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra you will find that the deep intimate conversation between Shiva and Shakti about the nature of reality becomes the basis of philosophical and scientific reasoning.  It became the Sohbet of Rumi and Shams and before that it was the intimate conversations that Jesus had with his disciples and before that it was the discussion of the Rabbi’s discussing Torah, or the law of the universe among themselves.

This became the Parrhesia of the ancient Greeks:

Reason is the capacity for consciously making sense of things, applying logic, establishing and verifying facts, and changing or justifying practices, institutions, andbeliefs based on new or existing information.[1] It is closely associated with such characteristically human activities as philosophy, science, language, mathematics, and art, and is normally considered[by whom?] to be a definitive characteristic of human nature.[2] The concept of reason is sometimes referred to as rationality and sometimes as discursive reason, in opposition to intuitive reason.[3]

The field of logic studies ways in which human beings reason through argument.[6]

  • The original Greek term was “λόγος”logos, the root of the modern English word “logic” but also a word which could mean for example “speech” or “explanation” or an “account” (of money handled).[7]
  • As a philosophical term logos was translated in its non-linguistic senses in Latin as ratio. This was originally not just a translation used for philosophy, but was also commonly a translation for logos in the sense of an account of money.[8]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reason

In rhetoric, parrhesia is a figure of speech described as: to speak candidly or to ask forgiveness for so speaking.[1] There are three different forms of parrhesia. Parrhesia is its nominal form, is translated from Latin to English meaning “free speech”. Parrhesiazomai in its verbal form is to use parrhesia, and parrhesiastes is the one who uses parrhesia for example “one who speaks the truth”. [2] The term parrhesia first appears in Greek literature in Euripides and can be found and used in ancient Greek texts all throughout the end of the fourth century and during fifth century A.D. [3] The term is borrowed from the Greek παρρησία (πᾶν “all” and ῥῆσις “utterance, speech”) meaning literally “to speak everything” and by extension “to speak freely,” “to speak boldly,” or “boldness.” It implies not only freedom of speech, but the obligation to speak the truth for the common good, even at personal risk.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parrhesia

and that became the sciences, the logy’s, or the logic of, teleology, biology, psychology, ecology, geology, etc.  Each logy would have a guru or teacher that specialized in that subject.  The entire western civilization evolved out of this process as well as the Western brain and the way western people think in general.  Our separation of powers, our checks and balances in the government, our sense of propriety, all of them came from the same place.

27 minutes: The name Augustus was chosen by Octavian chose the name Augustus the name of the High Priest of the Augure’s instead of the name Romulus the first king of Rome, he chose between the two names.

‘In my sixth and seventh consulships [28-27 BC], after I had extinguished civil wars, and at a time when with universal consent I was in complete control of affairs, I transferred the republic from my power to the dominion of the senate and people of Rome…After this time I excelled all in influence [auctoritas], although I possessed no more official power [potestas] than others who were my colleagues in the several magistracies.’ (Res Gestae Divi Augusti 34.1-3)[[1]]

46 minutes, the separation of powers, the leader can assume command of the military upon leaving the polis, but upon entering the polis must relinquish control of the millitary, (a legitimate leader must never use the military against his people).

Compare that with what President Obama recently did, is he giving power back to the people of the united states?  Is he more like Augustus or Julius Caesar?

In the exact sense, a tyrant is an individual who arrogates to himself the royal authority without having a right to it. This is how the Greeks understood the word ‘tyrant’: they applied it indifferently to good and bad princes whose authority was not legitimate. [Rousseau, “The Social Contract”]  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=tyrant

In a commentary of Oedipus I once read the author argued that Oedipus Rex should rightly have been called Oedipus Tyrannous because the original term didn’t have a negative meaning, it just meant popular ruler, Julius Caesar was very popular, he also was a usurper of the law.

PREEMPTIVE ARGUMENTS FOR THE HATERS

You are about to use the moving the goal fallacy with yourself as the goal and we are going to have an argument of infinite regress where you refuse to believe what I have just told you no matter how often I support it with facts.  You are not a linguisitic philosopher, an analytical philosopher or a philologist, I am.  Moreover, I am correct.

hamsa-temporary-tattoo

The Symbols above is known as the hamsa, it originated in India and was associated with the Jains, who were the Janis mentioned in the story of Moses.  The name comes from the Hindu concept of Harmlessness known as Ahimsa, notice the similar phonology?

Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli:[1]avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘not to injure’. The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.[2][3] Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings – including all animals – according to many Indian religions.[4]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa

The word itself derives from So Ham the inbreaths and outbreaths of Brahma if you are familiar with my work you know that I believe that Abraham and Brahma are one and the same, I am not the first or the only person who believes this.

Soham (सो ऽहम्so ‘ham[1]) is the Sanskrit for “I am He/That”. (See also: Tat Tvam Asi.)

When it applies to a person’s name, according to Vedic philosophy it means identifying oneself with the universe or ultimate reality. Some say that when a child is born it cries Koham-Koham which means Who am I? That is when the universe replies back Soham. You are the same as I am. It also stems from the Sanskrit word which means, “self pride.”

I am

“May [God] bless the lads, and let them carry my name, along with the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac. May they increase like fish in the land.” (Gen. 48:16)

The Talmud (Berachot 55b) explains that Joseph shared a special quality with fish:

“The fish in the waters are concealed by the water, and thus not susceptible to the Evil Eye. So too, the descendants of Joseph are not susceptible to the Evil Eye.” http://ravkooktorah.org/VAYEHI59.htm

Kabbalists such as myself know that “water” is a metaphor for Torah which is synonymous with the law of the Universe that is studied by rabbis, and augurs, and expounded.  Fish live in the water, so this zen like koan, which is so paradoxical is saying that the philosophers, the rational people need to be increased.  It is these philosophers who are protected from the evil eye.

The nounkohen is used in the Torah to refer to priests, both Jewish and non-Jewish, such as the Jewish nation as a whole,[1] as well as the priests (Hebrewkohanim) of Baal (2 Kings 10:19).

The Hebrew noun kohen is most often translated as “priest”, whether Jewish or pagan, such as the priests of Baal or Dagon, though Christian priests are referred to in Hebrew by the term komer (Hebrew כומר). The word derives from a Semitic root common, at minimum, to the Central Semitic languages; the cognateArabic wordكاهنkāhin means “soothsayer, augur, or priest“.

Torah Explained for Atheists part 3. Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

4 rabbi

I am going to open this piece with an exposition of the 4 rabbi’s that went into Paradise or PaRDeS and the exegesis of the story.  Later, I will return to the intro to the The Zohar: Pritzker Edition, translated with commentary by Daniel C. Matt.  Those portions that are not sourced come from the Zohar.  Let’s begin. 

The version in the Babylonian Talmud, which is the best-known, may be translated:

The Rabbis taught: Four entered the Pardes. They were Ben Azzai, Ben Zoma, Acher and Rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Akiva said to them, “When you come to the place of pure marble stones, do not say, ‘Water! Water!’ for it is said, ‘He who speaks untruths shall not stand before My eyes’ (Psalms 101:7)”. Ben Azzai gazed and died. Regarding him the verse states, ‘Precious in the eyes of G-d is the death of His pious ones’ (Psalms 116:15). Ben Zoma gazed and was harmed. Regarding him the verse states, ‘Did you find honey? Eat as only much as you need, lest you be overfilled and vomit it’ (Proverbs 25:16). Acher cut down the plantings. Rabbi Akiva entered in peace and left in peace.[3]

In the commentary printed beside the Talmud text, Rashi says that Ben Azzai died from looking at the Divine Presence. Ben Zoma‘s harm was in losing his sanity. Acher‘s “cutting down the plantings” in the orchard refers to becoming a heretic from the experience. Acher means “the other one”, and is the Talmudic term for thesageElisha ben Avuya. Rabbi Akiva, in contrast to the other three, became the leading Rabbinic figure of the era.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardes_(legend)#Exposition

“Again and again Rabbi Shim’on waxes eloquent in the praise of those who study Torah, especially those who do so after midnight.  They indeed take the place of the priests and Levites of old, ‘who stand in the house of the Lord by night.’  Those who awaken nightly to study the secrets of Torah become the earthly attendants of the divine bride, ushering Her into the chamber where She will unite at dawn with Her heavenly spouse.”

This is interesting to me for a few reasons, the reference to studying Torah at midnight is interesting because it is after midnight that one practices black magick in Voodoo, modern Voodoo is based on the 6th and 7th books of Moses.  Voodoo is something you use when you have no resources and you are fighting an enemy with all the resources.  This passage portrays the Levites as a kind of Guardian, hyper vigilant to an attack from the enemy, standing in a heightened state of suspicious awareness while everybody else slumbers.

“Torah, in the Zohar is not conceived as a text, as an object, or as material, but as a living divine presence, engaged in a mutual relationship with the person who studies her.  More than that, in the zoharic consciousness Torah is compared to a beloved who carries on with her lovers a mutual dynamic courtship.”

Remember if you will my theory that the cult of the Augures who created the philosophy of law, science, and religion in the West were associated with India and the Hebrews.  The High Priest of the cult of the Augures meditated on the divine law that infused the universe, he didn’t create the law and he was subject to it.  Even the separation of powers of the president is modeled after the Philosophy of the Augure cult.  Think of Torah as the divine law that governs events in the universe.

“The beloved in the nexus of this rrelationship is entirely active.  She sends signals of her interest to her lover, she intensifies his passionate desire for her by games of revealing and hiding.  She discloses secrets that stir his curiosity.  She desires to be loved.  The beloved is is closed in an erotic progression before her lover out of a desire to reveal secrets that have been forever hidden within her.

…the day when God gave Torah to Israel and proclaimed His love for her in the song of songs.”

a rhetorical tautology of God giving man a soul by giving him philosophy…

“In the Zohar, the true subject matter that the kabbalist finds in every verse is the hieros gamos itself, the mystical union of the divine male and female – the eros that underlies and transforms Torah, making it into a symbolic textbook on the inner erocit life of God.”

I am going to paraphrase a bit, many of the texts that make the Zohar are of the stories of the rabbis under the tutelage of Rabbi Shim’on.  They like the apostles of Jesus wander and teach others, in that journey, as they are having this mystical conversation on the nature of reality and remembering their experiences and what they learn, they often encounter people and beings that have more awareness of certain principles that govern the universe and human behavior than they do.  This knowledge also enters into their canon.

“The world as first created was a true Garden of Eden because the blessed Holy One and the Sheckinah were fact to face, joined in constant embrace like that of the upper sefirot Hokhmah and Binah.  Divine blessing thus coursed through the system without interruption…”

At this point in time the Jewish people didn’t believe in making visual artistic depictions of men or animals because they feared it would lead to idolatry, but here I can trace the rhetorical tautologies and movement of ideas in this fashion.  

shiva_jehovah

According to the Dalai Lama, Samantabhadra is the highest form of Buddha.  I think he meant this because this form of the Buddha represents God as the Creator in his male and female aspect, if you ponder you realize that in order to create you have to include feminine and masculine.  It might interest you to know that Heinrich Zimmer whose work was published and edited posthumously by Joseph Campbell had determined in his investigations that Buddhism was an offshoot of Hinduism as the Buddhas came from India and Nepal.  

Here the author makes mention of the myth of Plato which I will expound on for those of you who are not aware of it, and he connects it with the early Jewish myth, which is not only interesting in its implications it is also appropriate in light of my theories.

The Symposium Quotes
 “According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.”
“…and when one of them meets the other half, the actual half of himself, whether he be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other’s sight, as I may say, even for a moment…”
aristotle
When he said this he was using the word Philia, or Brotherly love, or fraternal love, making a reference to a philosophical family, notice the word philosophy has the words philia and sophia in it.  The single soul would be Sophia, or Psyche, or Torah.  This also has to do with the Philosophy of Greek Astrology if that is interesting, you can read this piece that I wrote.  https://thoughtuncommon.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/philosophy-of-astrology/
hermaphrodite (n.) Look up hermaphrodite at Dictionary.comlate 14c. (harmofroditus), from Latin hermaphroditus, from Greek Hermaphroditos (Latin Hermaphroditus), son of Hermes and Aphrodite, who, in Ovid, was loved by the nymph Salmacis so ardently that she prayed for complete union with him and as a result they were united bodily, combining male and female characteristics. Also used figuratively in Middle English of “one who improperly occupies two offices.” As a name for the condition, Middle English had hermofrodito (late 14c.), hermofrodisia(early 15c.). As an adjective, from c.1600.  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=hermaphrodite
“Adam and eve according to the aggadah, were siamese twins, conjoined back to back.  This single being is that described in Genesis 1:27:  “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”  …in the following chapter is the separation of this pair, in which they are first turned to face-to-face to one another, …  They had to be “sawed apart” so they might be properly united.”

If we wanted to get really esoteric I could trace this idea all the way back to India for you.  Do you double dog dare me?

Muslims, Ishmael, and Judas Iscariot, by Rabbi Ba’al Shiva

Jesus-Not-Happy-with-the-Hobby-Lobby

I apologize ahead of time, I am going to be repeating some of my material for those people reading my stuff for the first time, but there will be some new information in here and some new connections made for older subscribers.  

People read an ancient book that was written over millenia by multiple different authors, they assume that nothing has changed, they assume the book was written by their people about their history, none of this is true, you have to understand that the bible was written as a mythological allegory, names were changed and it was written as a myth because there was a force in the world trying to conceal and destroy the truth.  The children of the lie, the offspring of vipers, they conceal the truth about themselves, and they represent themselves falsely, all the while spreading themselves across the land in an effort to increase and expand the authority of an ancient evil.  In this blog we will go a step further towards revealing this hidden hand throughout history.

For years it was thought that it was a myth that the 12 tribes of Judah were ever used as zodiac symbols, recent evidence shows that indeed it was.

aktribes

Every major world civilization has a few things in common, they have a variety of peoples there, they are wealthy or as the bible says it, “blessed by god.”  They have a large middle class.  This large middle class allows the movement of people from different cultures that are also successful, to move about freely from one culture to the next.  These craftsmen are often part of secret societies, sometimes spreading revolutionary ideas.  This allows philosophies, and best practices to be exposed to different societies.  These come from math cults started by Pythagorus, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle were part of these math cults as were Jesus an Shams.  This horizontal, democratic, movement of ideas moved through nomadic peoples, the jews, who weren’t particularly allowed to own land throughout history but were exposed to many different cultures and adopted the successful practices from those cultures.  As evidence of this pattern I offer to you the Gypsies who were named after Egypt, when coming from Egypt and were also referred to as the Romani when coming from Rome.  The poet and Sufi Mystic known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī had the nickname Rumi being named after Rome.  His best friend, spiritual instructor, and possibly gay lover Shams was like a freemason and he was part of the Math Cults started by Pythagorus, and he was in the spirit of Jesus.  Also he was eventually kidnapped and beheaded by some of Rumi’s jealous students most likely including one of Rumi’s own sons.

Shams is the Arabic word for “sun” (شمس).  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shams

Shams-i-Tabrīzī (Persian: شمس تبریزی‎) or ‘Shams al-Din Mohammad’ (1185–1248) was a Persian[1]Muslim,[2] who is credited as the spiritual instructor of Mewlānā Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhi, also known as Rumi and is referenced with great reverence in Rumi’s poetic collection, in particular Diwan-i Shams-i Tabrīzī (The Works of Shams of Tabriz). Tradition holds that Shams taught Rumi in seclusion in Konya for a period of forty days, before fleeing for Damascus. The tomb of Shams-i Tabrīzī was recently nominated to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shams_Tabrizi

According to contemporary Sufi tradition, Shams Tabrizi mysteriously disappeared: some say he was killed by close disciples of Mowlana Jalaluddin Rumi who were jealous of the close relationship between Rumi and Shams. It is also said that Shams Tabrizi left Konya and died in Khoy where he was buried. Sultan Walad, Rumi‘s son, in his Walad-Namamathnawi just mentions that Shams mysteriously disappeared from Konya with no more specific details.

In Jesus time Rome had reached an apex, the Roman Roads made travel very easy and since all roads lead to Rome, it attracted some unsavory characters.  Bad things started happening, all of a sudden there were these people that wouldn’t participate, these revolutionaries that wanted to take over, to judge everybody with their slave values, they felt entitled to judge and to rule everybody else.  The funny thing was they had moved their to increase their own quality of life, now why would they think that they deserved to rule, seeing as how everywhere they went they created poverty and dust and famine, and murder?

It became necessary for Jesus to resurrect the old sciences once again and to make order out of chaos.  The 12 tribes of Israel became the 12 disciples, a group of initiates sanctioned with separating the sheep from the goats and taking their message to a specific group of people so that the sheep might be saved and separated from those that didn’t respect the authority of reason.  It is possible he was in league with some Roman officials but I don’t think it was the Flavian Caesars as some have postulated, I suspect they were in league with the Pharisees as Flavius Josephus the historian that bares their name was a Pharisee.

As I mentioned in the piece, “WHO REALLY WAS JESUS, RABBI BA’AL SHIVA” Jesus didn’t like the Pharisees and he didn’t like the Samaritans, he didn’t like anybody that adhered to the Abrahamic Law Code.  He used the Good Samaritan as an example to illustrate his concept of a philosophical family a philoish, and the Good Samaritan was the exception to the rule, as we know the exception proves the rule because it is the exception.

The Samaritans are adherents of Samaritanism, an Abrahamic religion closely related to Judaism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samaritans

Conflicts between Pharisees and Sadducees took place in the context of much broader and longstanding social and religious conflicts among Jews, dating back to the Babylonian captivity and exacerbated by the Roman conquest.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pharisees

Which raises the question, Who was Judas?  The bible very cleverly and necessarily changes names in order to implicate patterns, the word Messiah, comes from the word Moses, which is why Jesus was the greater Moses, and that words comes from proto-indo-european and can be traced back to India.

In Indian religions and Indian philosophy, Moksha (Sanskrit: मोक्षmokṣa), also called vimoksha, vimukti and mukti,[1]means emancipation, liberation or release.[2] In soteriological and eschatological sense, it connotes freedom fromsaṃsāra, the cycle of death and rebirth.[3] In epistemological and psychological sense, moksha connotes freedom, self-realization and self-knowledge.[4]   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moksha

Likewise, the name Solomon was not a real persons name although there is trace evidence in our very language that something happened there that was very significant and not unlike what happened in Rome, and is now happening in the United States and all across Europe.  Solomon derives from Shalom, and Solomon was the king of peace.

SolomonLook up Solomon at Dictionary.commasc. proper name, Biblical name of David’s son, king of Judah and Israel and wisest of all men, from Greek Solomon, from Hebrew Sh’lomoh, from shelomo “peaceful,” from shalom “peace.”  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=Solomon

So back to the question at hand, Who was Judas Iscariot, even his first name is reminiscent of Jewery, lets examine the last name for linguistic clues, Iscariot.

  • One popular explanation derives Iscariot from Hebrew איש־קריות, Κ-Qrîyôth, or “man of Kerioth“. The Gospel of John refers to Judas as “son of Simon Iscariot” (although some translations only refer to him as “the son of Simon” (Jn 6:71, Jn 13:26, King James Version)),[3] implying it was not Judas, but his father, who came from there.[4] Some speculate that Kerioth refers to a region in Judea, but it is also the name of two known Judean towns.[5]
  • A second theory is that “Iscariot” identifies Judas as a member of the sicarii.[6] These were a cadre of assassins among Jewish rebels intent on driving the Romans out of Judea. However, some historians maintain the sicarii arose in the 40s or 50s of the 1st century, in which case Judas could not have been a member.[7]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judas_Iscariot#Etymology

So, now let’s follow the trail left for us by this mythological allegory and see if we can make any sense of it.

Sicarii (Latin plural of Sicarius “dagger-men”, in Modern Hebrew rendered siqariqim סיקריקים) is a term applied, in the decades immediately preceding thedestruction of Jerusalem in 70 CE, to an extremist splinter group[1] of the JewishZealots, who attempted to expel the Romans and their partisans from the Roman province of Judea.[2] The Sicarii carried sicae, or small daggers, concealed in their cloaks, hence their name.[3] At public gatherings, they pulled out these daggers to attack Romans or Roman sympathizers, blending into the crowd after the deed to escape detection.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicarii

Hmm!  Well that is interesting!  Does that remind anybody about anything happening today?  Like maybe a tactic used ad nauseum by a certain group of people?

Let us consult the Legend of King Solomon passed down by the Freemasons to see if we can find any recurring patterns.

The legend goes as follows..

Hiram Abiff, “a widow’s son” from Tyre, skilful in the working of all kinds of metals, was employed to help build King Solomon’s Temple.

The legend tells us that one day, whilst worshipping the Grand Architect of the Universe (GAOTU) within the Holy of Holies, Hiram was attacked by three ruffians, (called ‘Jubela’, ‘Jubelo’ & ‘Jubelum’ and known collectively as ‘The Juwes’) who demanded the “Master’s word”, that is, the secret name of God.

The first ruffian, named Jubela, struck Hiram across the throat with a 24 inch gauge. The second ruffian, named Jubelo, struck Hiram’s breast, over the heart, with a square.   The third ruffian, named Jubelum, struck Hiram upon the forehead with a gavel, whereupon Hiram fell dead. His blood, therefore, was shed within the temple.

Hiram, having been killed, was carried out the East gate of the Temple and buried outside Jerusalem on Mount Moriah.  http://www.christian-restoration.com/fmasonry/hiram.htm

Well, that got weird fast.  Let’s take the Wayback machine back about 1,000 years ago and see what we can learn from history…

untitled

During the time of Moses Maimonides the Jews were once again living under the tyranny of the Persian, Babylonian, ideology of tyranny and terrorism.  Jews were allowed to practice their faith in secret paying lip service to Allah, but living in fear, not allowed to gather on the streets without attracting negative attention.  Once again they lived under fear and persecution as the Muslims tried to convert them with violence and threats and the Kara-ites with Muslim ties and sympathies were corrupting the Jewish faith by soliciting the fundamentalist Abrahamic doctrine of the earliest form of un evolved Judaism.

Much like myself Rabbi Maimonides was a Qabalist, and investigated the holy writings in his own way reinterpreting them and looking for hidden wisdom that had been left for later generations to glean.  Her is what he said:

In your letter you mention that the apostle has spurred on a number of people to believe that several verses in Scripture allude to the Madman (Mohammed), such as “bimeod meod” (Genesis 17:20), “he shined forth from Mount Paran” (Deuteronomy 33:1), “a prophet from the midst of thee” (Deuteronomy 18:15), and the promise to Ishmael “I will make him a great nation” (Genesis 17:20). These arguments have been rehearsed so often that they have become nauseating. It is not enough to declare that they are altogether feeble; nay, to cite as proofs these verses is ridiculous and absurd in the extreme. For these are not matters that can confuse the minds of anyone.

But the Muslims themselves put no faith in their own arguments, they neither accept nor cite them, because they are manifestly so fallacious. Inasmuch as the Muslims could not find a single proof in the entire Bible nor a reference or possible allusion to their prophet which they could utilize, they were compelled to accuse us saying, “You have altered the text of the Torah, and expunged every trace of the name of Mohammed therefrom.” They could find nothing stronger than this ignominious argument the falsity of which is easily demonstrated to one and all by the following facts.

The motive for their accusation lies therefore, in the absence of any allusion to Mohammed in the Torah.
The phrase “a great nation” cited above does not connote a people in possession of prophecy or a Law, but merely one large in numbers just as in reference to idolaters Scripture says “nations greater and mightier than yourselves.” (Deuteronomy 11:23).

Similarly, the phrase “bimeod meod” simply signifies “exceedingly.” Were there any allusion in the verse to Mohammed, then it would have read “and I shall bless him bimeod meod,” and whoever likes to hang on to a spider’s web might then discover a reference to Mohammed therein. As it is, since Scripture says “I shall increase him bimeod meod,” it can only denote an extravagant increment in numbers.

There is no question that the Divine assurance to Abraham to bless his descendants, to reveal the Torah to them, and to make them the Chosen People, refers only to the offspring of Isaac. For Ishmael is mentioned as an adjunct and appendage in the blessing of Isaac, which reads “and also of the son of the bond-woman will I make a nation.” (Genesis 21:13). This verse suggests that Isaac holds a primary position and Ishmael a subordinate place. This point is made even more explicit in the blessing which ignores Ishmael entirely. “For in Isaac shall seed be called in thee.” (Genesis 21:12).The meaning of God’s promise to Abraham is that the issue of Ishmael will be vast in numbers but neither pre-eminent nor the object of divine favor, nor distinguished for the attainment of excellence. Not because of them will Abraham be famed or celebrated, but by the noted and illustrious scions of Isaac. The phrase “shall be called” simply means, shall be renowned, as it does in the verse, “Let thy name be called in them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac.” (Genesis 48:16).  http://stephanhuller.blogspot.com/2009/08/maimonides-on-yemenite-argument-that.html

IN CONCLUSION

The Jews of Freemasonry, are not the Jews of today, they are the Muslims, the Ishmaelite order of Assassins cleverly rebranded by Mohammed. The KKK is wrong in blaming the Jews for the death of Jesus as He told his disciples to go not to the Samaritan Jews, and he hated the Pharisees and Sadducees that traced their origin to Babylon, he told them instead to g to the lost children of Israel.  It was the Persian Jews that wanted Jesus dead.  And the Muslims are nothing new, they claim to be of the lineage of Moses, and Jesus, but the resurrect the law code of Abraham, which is in itself a misuse since that law code was created when Abraham was individuating and separating from the Evil practices of Babylon and he had to use tactics that would succeed against a ruthless and immoral enemy.

The Muslims know that the are lying, they know that they are liars, this is no secret, it is in their own holy books.

Don’t let them fool you with their clever obfuscations, it is because of the nature of the Persian languages who have had caste systems for 6,000 years that their language is given to multiple different translations of meaning depending on who you are and what their intent is.  Their very language, their very thought processes are given to manipulation and concealment and lying.  This is a valid translation, it is not a transliteration, this is what they teach the inmost initiates of Islam translating it differently for suspicious westerners in order to conceal the evil intent that lies therein.

Maybe some of you can sit back and watch the Persian Babylonian Empire take over the entire world as was their intent in the beginning, but I cannot in good conscious sit back and watch it happen silently.  We have been pushed to the ends of the earth.  Historicly, every time these people come together it is them, that causes the problem because they are a psychopathic people they are arrogant, superior, entitled, histrionic, greedy, evil, conniving human beings.  Every time their has been a world power it was the introduction of these horrible human beings that signaled the collapse of that civilization.  Egypt, Israel, Rome, and now France, Germany, Britain, Australia, and eventually the United States of America.

The Origins of Rock and Roll, Rabbi Ba’al Shiva

For those of you familiar with my research on the movement of ideas, Philology, through time and across countries this will not come as a surprise to you or as a deviation from my regular narrative. For those of you reading this for the first time it will sound like I am making this up.  I am not.

image009

Not only am I a Cohanim Rabbi, I am also a Jnana Guru, to those non-initiates that don’t understand the occult philosophy behind religion they will not understand how those things cannot be mutually exclusive, they also won’t understand how I can think of myself as a Buddhist and a Christian mystic, and at the same time, in some ways, a Satanist.  The answer is simple, I understand the Religions, their origins and their philosophies and I can be all of them at the same time and defend my positions in rational debate with evidence and reason.

There  are no good definitions for this available, Transgressive Sacrality is a ritual practice of non-conformity used in the Aghori Shaivist community who smoke massive amounts of weed and meditate in grave yards.

The practice is for removing unwarranted feelings of superiority known as vidya, or division.  Avidya is the goal, and this practice is prescribed for the curing of puritannically obsessive mentalities, that presuppose cleanliness as a virtue and a mark of superiority.  Practices vary from drinking one’s own urine, eating feces, or consuming small portions of a corpse.

The reason you won’t find any accurate descriptions is because of a natural instinct in religions in an effort to protect their authority and to make themselves look good, the conceal the truth, and reveal themselves in a way in which they look better than they actually are.

untitled1

For me the trail of this tradition is obvious and plain.  I see the evidence of it moving from here to there throughout time.  It is no mystery for me.  This satanic impulse of rebellion is how Evolution protects life on earth, through diversification, not through homogenization.  If you observe the obsessively compulsive nature’s of people’s that have a puritanical fetish, you realize that an aseptic environment is also a dead environment, look at the lack of creativity and art in the Muslim community, their hatred and contempt of the Creative intelligence of others and their down right lack of intelligence as a group.  http://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2012/10/20/islamabad-freelance-columnist-800-million-muslims-out-of-1-4-billion-are-illiterate/

It is not commonly known that there are texts that show that Rabbi’s were supposed to practice Qabalah at 12:00 at night, the same time that one starts practicing black magick.

The worship of intelligence, of the God of Reason is the hidden subject.  I am going to go out on a limb here and trace this tradition right up to the present, this might not make any sense to you and you might not believe me, but I have trained myself to recognize rhetorical tautologies and to be able to know things about people and groups of people based on their narrative.

So here goes, nothing.

Rabbi Ba’al Shivah, the Hindu Hebrew connection.

wall-hanging-hamsa-eye-chai-red-blue--white-small-1

Today I am going to discuss some of the similarities between the Hebrews and the Hindus with my atheist friends and explain some of my ideas on the mind and psychology for them.  Above we see the Hamsa, which was originally used by the Jains in India.  Even the word Hamsa comes from the Indian word ahimsa, which means:

Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli:[1]avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘to not injure’. The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.[2][3] Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings including animals according to many Indian religions.[4]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa

We see that the Hamsa is actually a stylized penis, masquerading as a hand, hands by their very nature are not equilateral, the Shiva lingam represents Shiva’s penis. 

The lingam (also, linga, ling, Shiva linga, Shiv ling, Sanskrit लिङ्गं, liṅgaṃ, meaning “mark”, “sign”, or “inference”[1][2]) is a representation of the Hindu deity Shiva used for worship in temples.[3] In traditional Indian society, the linga is rather seen as a symbol of the energy and potential of the God.[4][4][5][6][7]

The lingam is often represented alongside the yoni, a symbol of the goddess or of Shakti, female creative energy.[8] The union of lingam and yoni represents the “indivisible two-in-oneness of male and female, the passive space and active time from which all life originates”.[9]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_Linga

Shiva being the God of Death is also at the same time the God of life.  

OmNamahShivaya_3887

Even if you look at the similarities between the so called “horned alphabet” and sanskrit you see similarities.  Hebrew was a revolutionary language for a secretive people, it was simplified and modified from sanskrit making it easier to use, it was the language of revolt, Kabbalists have always been very secretive in their communication of revolutionary ideas.  

Origins of the word[edit]

The term cabal derives from Cabala (a word that has numerous spelling variations), the Jewish mystical interpretation of the Hebrew scripture. In Hebrew it means “reception” or “tradition”, denoting the sod (secret) level of Jewish exegesis. In European culture (Christian Cabala, Hermetic Qabalah) it became associated withoccult doctrine or a secret.[citation needed]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabal#Origins_of_the_word

Have you ever considered the meaning of Moses finding the Hebrew god on Mount Sinai?  

According to some biblical scholars[who?], Horeb is thought to mean “glowing/heat”, which seems to be a reference to the sun, whileSinai may have derived from the name of Sin, the Sumerian deity of the moon,[3][4] and thus Sinai and Horeb would be the mountains of the moon and sun, respectively.

Interesting that Shiva himself is a moon god, is it not?  I frankly think that the burning bush was marijuana, the Aghori shaivists smoke massive amounts of marijuana, and then meditate in grave yards.

Because the Jews were aware of psychology, when they were a warring tribe if you killed in battle you had to sit Shiva and meditate for 7 days before you were clean (kosher) and allowed back into the city.  My nom de plume means, Lord of Meditation, because in my slaying of the ego I have killed more than anybody else.  

The Hebrew word “shiva” means “seven”, and the official shiva period is seven days. The day of the funeral is counted as the first day of shiva, even though the practice does not begin until after the mourner(s) arrive at the designated location following the funeral.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_(Judaism)#Length_of_shiva

Shiva was a wandering philosopher, India was famous as being a source of wandering philosophers that went walkabout and took their traditions far and wide.  When he went to a strange land he would sleep in the grave yard because he was surrounded by an entourage of disembodied spirits to which he ministered, this is not bizarre in the Kabbalist tradition, many rabbis are known to have angelic and even demonic familiars with which they can be seen conversing. 

Below we see the Origins of the muslim epithet, “shayateen”. 

Had you been a cartographer and geographer working for the British East India company in the 17th and 18th centuries, you would have found all over India thousands of Hebrew-like place names with similar meanings in both languages as well. The map excerpt on this page shows a small section of ancient Seuna-Desa (Zion Land) in what is now Maharashtra (to right). At the bottom right of the excerpt is the city of Paithan, on the banks of the river Godivari. The Indo-Hebrews named the part of the river passing through Paithan’s territory Paithan (Pison, Phison), according to their traditions. In the upper left-hand corner is the city of Satana. According to the legends of the Yadavas (Indo-Hebrews), Satana would have made the folks in Sodom and Gomorah envious. The Seunas and the Satanas decided to resolve their moral and religious differences on the battlefield. The forces of “Satan” lost, but their defeat didn’t dishearten them. Eventually, we came to think of “Satan” as a being who lost the battle but not the war. The bible tells us that such a peace treaty hasn’t yet been signed between these two ancient enemies.

http://www.viewzone.com/matlock.html

Later in that same article it says this:

Holger Kersten wrote in Jesus Lived in India,

“The relation between ancient Israel and Kashmiri can most clearly be demonstrated linguistically. Kashmirian is different from all the other Indian languages, the origins of which are Sanskrit. The development of the language of Kashmir has been greatly influenced by the Hebrew. Abdul Ahad Azad writes, ‘The language of Kashmir derives from Hebrew.’ According to tradition, in ancient times Jewish peoples settled here, whose language changed into the Kashmirian of today. There are many Hebrew words that are quite obviously connected with the language of Kashmir.” (pp. 68-69.)

24But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”  Matthew 12: 24

The pharisees who were practicing the old Abrahamic law code essentially accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of Satan.  Are you starting to see the connection here?  Instead of denying it, Jesus mentions the Temple of Solomon, and makes a reference to a house being divided against itself.  Solomon built gods temple by enslaving spirits and forcing them to do his bidding.  Then he turns it around on the Pharisees and asks them by what power they themselves cast out demons.  

It has recently occurred to me that their is a huge similarity between the phonology of the words Shayateen and Chaitanya.  

The Sanskrit word, Chaitanya, means ‘consciousness’ or ‘universal soul’ or ‘spirit’ or ‘intelligence’ or ‘sensation’.[1][2] It is the pure Consciousness or the cosmic intelligence, the consciousness that knows itself and also knows others.[3] It also means energy or enthusiasm.[4]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaitanya_(consciousness)

If you remember the Muslims hate the color saffron, which is the color of the robes of the Sarasvati order monks. Notice too the familiar phonology of the word Charlatan and what Mohammed said about Shaytan, he is the whisperer.  Remember that Mary Magdalene moved to France after Jesus alleged death.  Remember too that Proto-indo-european is more or less a fact.  I, being a phonologist, track the movements of ideas across countries and through time.   

The word comes from Frenchcharlatan, a seller of medicines who might advertise his presence with music and an outdoor stage show. The best known of the Parisian charlatans was Tabarin, who set up a stage in the Place Dauphine, Paris in 1618, and whose commedia dell’arte inspired skits and whose farces inspired Molière. The word can also be traced toSpanish; charlatán, an indiscreetly talkative person, a chatterbox. Ultimately, etymologists trace “charlatan” from either theItalianciarlare, to prattle; or from Cerretano, a resident of Cerreto, a village in Umbria, known for its quacks.[1]  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlatan

Imagine if you will the Pharisees bursting in and yelling, “Shayateen!  Charlatan!  Chaitanya!”.  Remember that they reject thought, they reject consciousness, they avoid thinking as much as possible.  They fear intelligence.  

I am familiar with the word Chaitanya because my Shaktipat Initiatore, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda has a root word in her name.  Her name means, Energy = chit, moves= vilas= velocity, bliss= ananda, Sarasvati order monks adopt the suffix “ananda”.  The word Chit, energy, comes from Chaitanya, consciousness.  The words Chi, ki, come from this root as well as the words Chan and Zen.  

Now it is no secret that I think Abraham and Brahma are the same being historically, I am not the first person to think this, many others have come to the same conclusion.  If you observe closely you will find many similarities between the marriages of Brahman families and Chassidic jews, what is of interest is that the Aghori, the lingayats, and the Kashmir Shaivists rejected more or less the authority of the Brahman priest class, who are very much like the muslims adhering to the old Abrahamic law code.  The lingayats, were poets and mystics, they wore a shiva lingam around their neck and they had a personal relationship with god, and no mediator separating them from god.  They had their own nickname for Shiva, and they visualized him in a form that was sacred to themselves.  It was very much a personal relationship with god.

According to Heinrich Zimmer, whose work was edited and published posthumously by Joseph Campbell, there is only on Temple for Brahma, and the vast majority of demons worshiped Brahma.  This is of further interest when you consider that the Indian demons look so much like Muslims.

Is the bible true?  Yes, but not literally.  From my perspective it is a mythological allegory for real historical events.  Not only did the people writing the bible not take it literally, they weren’t the same people.  Some of the Books of the Bible have Persian words, Israel was continually being reconquered by Persia and then re educated and then escaping yet again.  The Bible tells a story of a struggle to once and for all be free of the corrupt relationship with this tyrannical eastern force.  Often times these people had to tell their stories in a concealed metaphorical way so that other parties would not be directly offended, but at the same time the truth of the matter could be ferreted out with study and meditation.

Pardes (Jewish exegesis)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Pardes refers to (types of) approaches to biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism (or – simpler – interpretation of text inTorah study). The term, sometimes also spelled PaRDeS, is an acronym formed from the name initials of the following four approaches:

  • Peshat (פְּשָׁט) — “plain” (“simple”) or the direct meaning.[1]
  • Remez (רֶמֶז) — “hints” or the deep (allegoric: hidden or symbolic) meaning beyond just the literal sense.
  • Derash (דְּרַשׁ) — from Hebrew darash: “inquire” (“seek”) — the comparative (midrashic) meaning, as given through similar occurrences.
  • Sod (סוֹד) (pronounced with a long O as in ‘bone’) — “secret” (“mystery”) or the esoteric/mystical meaning, as given through inspiration or revelation.

We know that the Jews Hellenized and absorbed the Greek Culture and philosophy.

Hellenistic Judaism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hellenistic Judaism was a form of Judaism in the ancient world that combined Jewish religious tradition with elements of Greek culture. Until the fall of the Roman Empire and the Muslim conquests of the Eastern Mediterranean, the main centers of Hellenistic Judaism were Alexandria (Egypt) and Antioch (Northern Syria—now Turkey), the two main Greek urban settlements of the Middle East and North Africa area, both founded at the end of the 4th century BCE in the wake of the conquests of Alexander the Great. Hellenistic Judaism also existed in Jerusalem during the Second Temple Period, where there was conflict between Hellenizers and traditionalists (sometimes called Judaizers).

The major literary product of the contact of Second Temple Judaism and Hellenistic culture is the Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible from Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic to Koiné Greek, specifically, Jewish Koiné Greek.

The decline of Hellenistic Judaism started in the 2nd century CE, and its causes are still not fully understood. It may be that it was eventually marginalized by, partially absorbed into or became progressively the Koiné-speaking core of “Early Christianity” centered around Antioch and its “universalist” tradition — see most notably Paul of Tarsus and Judaismand the Abrogation of Old Covenant laws.

I am going to tell you an interesting little story, and point out some similarities that you might not have noticed before.

Battle of Thermopylae

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Battle of Thermopylae (/θərˈmɒpɨl/ thər-mop-i-leeGreekΜάχη τῶν ΘερμοπυλῶνMachē tōn Thermopylōn) was fought between an alliance of Greek city-states, led by King Leonidas of Sparta, and thePersian Empire of Xerxes I over the course of three days, during the second Persian invasion of Greece. It took place simultaneously with the naval battle at Artemisium, in August or September 480 BC, at the narrow coastal pass of Thermopylae (‘The Hot Gates’). The Persian invasion was a delayed response to the defeat of the first Persian invasion of Greece, which had been ended by the Athenian victory at the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC. Xerxes had amassed a huge army and navy, and set out to conquer all of Greece. The Athenian generalThemistocles had proposed that the allied Greeks block the advance of the Persian army at the pass of Thermopylae, and simultaneously block the Persian navy at the Straits of Artemisium.

The Battle of Thermopylae was a real event.  it is taught in Millitary History.

Military history

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Military history is a humanities discipline within the scope of general historical recording of armed conflict in the history of humanity, and its impact on the societies, their cultures, economies and changing intra and international relationships.

Professional historians normally focus on military affairs that had a major impact on the societies involved as well as the aftermath of conflicts, while amateur historians and hobbyists often take a larger interest in the details of battles, equipment and uniforms in use.

The essential subjects of military history study are the causes of war, the social and cultural foundations, military doctrine on each side, the logistics, leadership, technology, strategy, and tactics used, and how these changed over time. On the other hand, Just War Theory explores the moral dimensions of warfare, and to better limit the destructive reality caused by war, seeks to establish a doctrine of military ethics.

Now it appears that the book of Judges was written before the battle of Thermopylae, if sources can be trusted.  So the Question arises was the book of Judges the inspiration for the battle of Thermopylae?

Judges 7:

The Lord said to Gideon, “The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel boast over me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’ Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, ‘Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return home and hurry away from Mount Gilead.’” Then 22,000 of the people returned, and 10,000 remained.

And the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many. Take them down to the water, and I will test them for you there, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall go with you,’ shall go with you, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ shall not go.” So he brought the people down to the water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “Every one who laps the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set by himself. Likewise, every one who kneels down to drink.” And the number of those who lapped, putting their hands to their mouths, was 300 men, but all the rest of the people knelt down to drink water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “With the 300 men who lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hand, and let all the others go every man to his home.”So the people took provisions in their hands, and their trumpets. And he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his tent, but retained the 300 men. And the camp of Midian was below him in the valley.


 

Midian

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Midian (Hebrewמִדְיָן‎), Madyan (Arabicمدين‎), or Madiam (GreekΜαδιάμ, Μαδιανίτης for a Midianite) is a geographical place and a people mentioned in the Bible and in the Qur’anWilliam G. Dever suggests it was located in the “northwest Arabian Peninsula, on the east shore of the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea (the “Hejaz”). “[1]

Hadad the Edomite is specifically stated in 1 Kg 11:17-18 to have passed through Midian and Paran while fleeing from Edomto Egypt. Even so, some scholars have claimed Midian was not a geographical area but a league of tribes.[2]

The Midianites were the descendants of Midian, who was a son of Abraham through his wife Keturah: “. . . again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah. And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.”

What is the significance of the Number 300?  Well, stick with me for a moment and I will try to explain it to you.

Shin (letter)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shin (also spelled Šin (šīn) or Sheen) literally means “teeth”, “press”, and “sharp”; It is the twenty-first letter in manySemitic abjadsincluding Phoenician 𐤔Aramaic/Hebrew ש, and Arabic ش‎ (in abjadi order, 13th in modern order). Its sound value is a voiceless sibilant[ʃ] or [s].

Significance[edit]

In gematria, Shin represents the number 300.

According to Judges 12:6, the tribe of Ephraim could not differentiate between Shin and Samekh; when the Gileadites were at war with the Ephraimites, they would ask suspected Ephraimites to say the word shibolet; an Ephraimite would say sibolet and thus be exposed. From this episode we get the English word Shibboleth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibboleth

shibboleth (/ˈʃɪbəlɛθ/[1] or /ˈʃɪbələθ/[2]) is a word or custom whose variations in pronunciation or style can be used to differentiate members of ingroups from those of outgroups. Within the mindset of the ingroup, a connotation or value judgment of correct/incorrect or superior/inferior can be ascribed to the two variants.

Origin[edit]

The term originates from the Hebrew word shibbólet (שִׁבֹּלֶת), which literally means the part of a plant containing grains, such as an ear of corn or a stalk of grain[3]or, in different contexts, “stream, torrent”.[4][5] The modern usage derives from an account in the Hebrew Bible, in which pronunciation of this word was used to distinguish Ephraimites, whose dialect lacked a /ʃ/ phoneme (as in shoe), from Gileadites whose dialect did include such a phoneme.

Recorded in the Book of Judges, chapter 12, after the inhabitants of Gilead inflicted a military defeat upon the tribe of Ephraim (around 1370–1070 BC), the surviving Ephraimites tried to cross the Jordan River back into their home territory and the Gileadites secured the river’s fords to stop them. In order to identify and kill these refugees, the Gileadites put each refugee to a simple test:

Gilead then cut Ephraim off from the fords of the Jordan, and whenever Ephraimite fugitives said, ‘Let me cross,’ the men of Gilead would ask, ‘Are you an Ephraimite?’ If he said, ‘No,’ they then said, ‘Very well, say “Shibboleth” (שבלת).’ If anyone said, “Sibboleth” (סבלת), because he could not pronounce it, then they would seize him and kill him by the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites fell on this occasion.

Judges 12:5–6, NJB

In Judaism[edit]

Shin also stands for the word Shaddai, a name for God. Because of this, a kohen (priest) forms the letter Shin with his hands as he recites the Priestly Blessing. In the mid 1960s, actor Leonard Nimoy used a single-handed version of this gesture to create the Vulcan hand salute for his character, Mr. Spock, on Star Trek.[2]

 

The Shema Yisrael prayer also commands the Israelites to write God’s commandments on their hearts (Deut. 6:6); the shape of the letter Shin mimics the structure of the human heart: the lower, larger left ventricle (which supplies the full body) and the smaller right ventricle (which supplies the lungs) are positioned like the lines of the letter Shin.

I can’t find a good source on this but Shin also represents fire and spirit.
